Damn, they're really close. What's the 6th category? I think I'd lean Carp slightly.

Love the podcast. Any plans to revisit the positional rankings as you update them on the site?
Paul Sporer
1:35
I'm gonna get the spreadsheet updated by tomorrow with probably just my rankings since the team wasn't prepped to update all of their rankings, but you'll have a spread of new rankings for your weekend drafts and any after the season starts

Eugenio or Reyes a better backup SS in 5x5 12 teamer?
Paul Sporer
1:35
Eugenio
PizzleRot

Joe Kelly, JA Happ, or Shane Greene?
Paul Sporer
1:36
Greene, but don't ignore Happ. I think he will take some things from PIT to TOR re: sequencing and pitch selection
robb Stark
1:36
Wieters or Gomes for Catcher? standard 5 plus 2b, 3b, OBP, K, Slugging....
Paul Sporer
1:36
I'm a sucker for Wiets
Bork
1:36
Am I going to get 4 hours of ludes now? Because I just cleared my work schedule for Thursday afternoons now.
Paul Sporer
1:36
Y'all, Bork has the ludes!
robb Stark

More like Brotographs--AMIRIGHT?
Paul Sporer
1:36
100% right
Bill
1:36
What kind of starting pitcher can I realistically expect for Longo in a 15 team dynasty?
Paul Sporer
1:37
Like a Zimmermann perhaps?
Jonesing for Pitching
1:37
Talk me off the ledge on Dozier's 2014 and 2015 second half swoons. (or don't and make me feel better about selling asap)
Paul Sporer
1:38
Well if it's roto, it doesn't really matter bc you're only concerned about the bottom line and 1H/2H isn't necessarily predictable (though some guys stand out as having rotten 2Hs regularly). Bigger concern is prob the meh SB count as I'm not sure he gets back to 20 again.
HEATER

How are you feeling about Eovaldi this year?
Paul Sporer
1:40
Still on board for sure. Started to handle lefties late last year and it yielded big results. The splitter is legit. ALLLLL comes down to fastball v. lefties.
Bill
1:40
Chris Owings. You buying?
Paul Sporer
1:40
In deep lgs. I'm a sucker for him too... been burned a bunch, so maybe 1 share in a deep lg
robb Stark

Non-Fantasy questions: Is it crazy to think Dallas Keuchel is a top 3 pitcher in the major leagues?
Paul Sporer
1:40
it's a tough case to say top 3 in MLB. He's REALLY good and does some great things to be successful, but I can't get him in the top 5
Donnie Sadler
1:41
Dustin Pedroia or Starlin Castro?
Paul Sporer
1:41
that's a floor/ceiling battle for sure. I'll take the shot on Castro
Trevor Bowser
1:41
Hi Paul. Do I cut T-Bau in an AL/keeper/short bench league or wait for Francona to see the light? Eno said to hold him, but his first name only has three letters and yours has four, so I defer to you.
Paul Sporer
1:41
Can't trust a 3-letter named dude, I hear that. I'd hold, too. Josh Tomlin is booty.
(aka Skinny Joe Blanton)

In a k/9 league do you prefer Wacha or Hamels?
Paul Sporer
1:44
Love Wacha, but gotta go Hamels there. We haven't seen the BIG K rate from Wacha yet and while I believe it's in there, Hamels hasn't been below 8 K/9 since 2009
Tyler
1:44
I'm stuck with Lawrie as my starting 3B. Villar, Lamb, Plouffe are currently non-rostered. Any advice?
Paul Sporer
1:45
Not much separating that quartet. Stick with Lawrie and if he drinks too many Red Bulls and flops (again) then you can prob get one of those dudes off the wire in May
kimmy
1:45
Any reason to hold Kim in an AL OBP keeper league, 3 man bench? I'd say How the mighty have fallen, but he was never really that mighty...
Paul Sporer
1:45
yeah, let's sit tight for now, though I understand the concerns
1:46
If you hate Drake, don't click these links. I (obviously) like him.
Fantasy Man
1:46
Which side wins, J Upton/Granderson/Straburg/Severino/ or Betts/Story/Kluber/McHugh
Paul Sporer
1:46
Not sure there's a clear *winner*, but I prefer Side B. Best player (Betts) and less risk.
Jim Lahey
1:46
Who do you think produces better value this season: Travis Shaw or Nick Castellanos?
