I can see it, yes. He's a stud.

Alex Gordon or Dexter Fowler in an OPS league?
Paul Sporer
2:29
Not too much difference, but gimme Fowler bc of that lineup slot
Diamond D
2:29
Berrios or Giolito for the next 2-3 years?
Paul Sporer
2:29
Gio has ace upside. Berrios' isn't quite that high
Patagucci
2:32
Who wins? Stanton/Lester for Bryant/Jo-Fer in a 5x5 keeper league?
Paul Sporer
2:32
side B barely. fair deal
Hi
2:32
Is Greene's spot in the rotation safe?
Paul Sporer
2:32
I think so bc even when Norris is ready, there's still Mike Pelfrey.
2:33
Speaking of Big Pelf, never watch him pitch bc he has some wicked stuff at times and you'll trick yourself into thinking he can be halfway decent
Midre & Ryan, Cummins & Goins

I got picks 2 and 4 in keeper minor league draft: Your thoughts on this order: 1. Reed 2. Gallo 3. Benintendi 4. Brinson 5. (hypothetical) Snell
Paul Sporer
2:34
I'd go Reed, Brinson, Snell, Gallo, Beni personally.
Paul Rocks

Went all-in on hitting this year (Martin, Rizzo, Miggy, Odor, Arenado, Kang/Story, Upton, Betts, Bautista, Puig, Pederson), to the detriment of my pitching (Archer, Pineda, Cashner, Fiers, Porcello, Conley, Karns, Lamb, ERod, Cody Anderson, Rubby). It's a H2H Ottoneu points league. Please tell me I'll be okay.
Paul Sporer
2:34
I really think you will be OK. There's some good arms in there and you will have at least 2-3 pop above their level (Conley, Pineda, Cash, are my faves to do so of that group) and you still got an ace.
Mark

AJ Reed, does he come a 30 HR 100 RBI guy eventually?
Paul Sporer
2:35
I mean that's a HUGE level to put on anyone so I gotta say no, but there's plenty of upside
Bruce
2:35
I have a spot to gamble on a high upside pitcher in free agency this week. Why is Juan Nicasio getting so much more attention than Shane Greene? Am I crazy for wanting Greene more?
Paul Sporer
2:35
No you're not crazy, but Nicasio had that electric spring and the Pittsburgh factor really helps. Not just the Ray Searage thing, but their defense and park combo so I get it. But go Greene if that's where your gut is leaning!

But you'll never have those really stank ass farts that clear the room anymore if you choose cologne!
2:39
Sometimes it's really funny to drop a legit BOMB

Trade Arenado for Sano in OBP dynasty if I have Bryant, or do I just stick him CI and love the counting stars?
Paul Sporer
2:39
Keep Arenado. I know his OBP wasn't great last year, but he's not automatically just that guy. He's better than Sano.
Shammy
2:39
JBJ or Brito?
Paul Sporer
2:39
JBJ
Stan
2:39
Vogt or Realmuto?
Paul Sporer
2:39
Vogt
Jonesing for Pitching
2:39
Richards w/ Andrelton behind him.....yummmmmm
Paul Sporer
2:40
Exactly! Don't sleep on Alexei in SD for Ross and Cashner (and Shields, though he's not as GB dependent)
TJ
2:40
Haven't heard a peep related to how Fernando Rodney has actually looked so far. I get we know who he is generally, but is it that ludicrous that he could get his share of saves this year? Is Maurer the best bet for second in line? As the cliché goes, somebody has to get the saves...
Paul Sporer
2:40
Yeah I think we know what he is. He'll have some runs of usefulness, but he should be your CL3 at best
Dave
2:40
Do you think Gregerson beats out Giles?
Paul Sporer
2:40
I'd be surprised
Twins Fan

Ron Coomer was an All-Star from the Twins. He actually made the all-star team. Great guy!
Paul Sporer
2:41
isn't he an announcer now for them?
