Yes. Check that April! It was SO OBVIOUSLY health last year. And while we can't guarantee health this year, we can certainly say he's healthier than he was May-Sept. last yr. I was so surprised by his price in drafts. Loved getting him.

Drop Brad Miller for Dyson? 12 team, no MI/CI slots, only have Ramos and Jeffress for saves
Paul Sporer
2:42
Ya I'm cool with that
Matt
2:42
What would you put the chances at that Semien outperforms Desmond this year?
Paul Sporer
2:43
50%? Or maybe I should 49% bc I have Desmond ranked ahead but I can very easily see it. I think both will be sharp this year
Danimal
2:43
Would you drop Zeigler to pick up the presumed Rangers closer
Paul Sporer
2:43
How desperately do you need the saves? I don't love Ziegs (espec. in any sort of K/9 or lg with innings cap), but possession is 9/10ths of the law

In a pts league who wins the following trade
Stanton, Ortiz, C-Mart for Scherzer and Carlos Santana?
Paul Sporer
2:46
I know SPs are usually much higher in pts leagues, but I think the Ortiz/CMart combo is enough to offset

Klaw in his chat today said to take Nicasio with a grain of salt since he still didn't show a third pitch last night. 5 of his 84 were changeups. Around how many should that number be before it's considered 'showing a third pitch'?
Paul Sporer
2:47
At least 9 for that count. You're looking ~10%. I wish Nicasio had a third pitch, too, but I think the slider is enough. Pirates have drawn SP success out of 2 pitch guys before with A.J. Burnett being the upside for Nicasio in that case. I don't think that's out of the realm.
Anthony
2:48
Do you think the Astros will regret trading VV....I'd take him longterm over McCullers.
Paul Sporer
2:48
No. They know what they gave. They traded his upside for now talent. It's part of how baseball works. Ostensibly he could do what Giles will do in the pen, but he deserves to be starting and throwing him in the pen for a year would stunt his growth so they moved him for a stud RP

10-teamer, have JoFer, Felix, Wainwright, Hamels, Tanaka, Ross, Wacha, and Odorizzi as my SP's. Is this too much of a good thing, or should I stand pat?
Paul Sporer
2:49
Sit tight. I like it, but it's hardly devoid of risk so if you get cocky, you could be hurting in short order

What is a Farquhar? Useful in holds leagues?
Paul Sporer
2:50
useful, sure, but probably better out there
Slevin
2:50
Eovaldi, Cashner or Samardzija ROS ?
Paul Sporer
2:50
Shark, Eovaldi, Cashner in that order
Pants

Would you trade for a very reasonably priced ($11 out of $260 cap) Pollock in a dynasty league? How much future risk does this injury/surgery have?
Paul Sporer
2:51
If you're contending this year, cash that chip in. That way you might've lost HIM, but you didn't lose the numbers. Don't sweat '17 when you're trying to win '16
Brian

IP/QS categories keeper league: trade Gio for Aaron Sanchez?
Paul Sporer
2:52
No. Sanchez will be limited in IP and could face some 5 IP starts as a result
Ricky
2:52
Thoughts on Rodon, and his start last night?
Paul Sporer
2:52
haven't watched yet
Dan
2:53
Have C.Martinez, Smyly, Samardizja, Scott Kazmir and Volquez in a 10 team Roto. I tried to trade for a better Sp but no one is biting. Should I stand Pat or should I look for specific type of pitcters on the waver wire? Or do you have any other suggestins?
Paul Sporer
2:53
If no bites, then play the wire. You could stream the Volquez spot or look for these hot starters out of the gate like Sanchez & Nicasio and try to catch lightning.
idk
2:53
What's the best strategy in a shallow 10-team league? I drafted 7th and I have some decent players but the free agent pool is full of great players, so I feel like I should be putting a premium on a couple positions, maybe?
Paul Sporer
2:53
yeah try to accumulate star power, otherwise you might just burn & churn a decent number of spots looking for a big score
2:54
it's part of why I don't play 10-teamers. I'm not trying to be a snob, but I don't have the skill set (or time) for that league type. Patience isn't as paid off in 10-teamers and you can't get too precious about your players. And I get precious about everyone! lol
Mark
2:54
Is Gerardo Parra this year's Pollock, or has the hype gone too far?
Paul Sporer
2:56
I wouldn't go that far.
idk
2:56
Would you rather have Lucas Duda or Starlin Castro as your fourth outfielder?
Paul Sporer
2:56
Castro is an OF?
2:57
And is Duda?
Jake
2:57
Drop Castellanos for Jake Lamb or Kevin Kiermaier 12 team 5x5 OBP
Paul Sporer
2:57
I wouldn't, espec. for Kiermaier (who I like, but barf on that OBP), but he & Lamb are close
Reginald Denton III
2:57
Starlin better than Dozier this season?
Paul Sporer
2:57
Yes
Jake
2:57
Am I holding Story for $3 in an OBP keeper or selling him like everyone is telling me to?
