Thoughts on Carlos Gomez? Are people too down on him? He was pretty epic a couple of years ago.
Paul Sporer
3:21
Yeah, another guy where it was obvious health

nicasio vs a. sanchez?
Paul Sporer
3:21
Sanchez deeper arsenal and higher upside
KJ
3:26
Freeman for Santana in points lg btw
Paul Sporer
3:26
Gah, that's p close. I'm a Santana guy tbh
BBK

Will Pineda learn how to bury his breaking stuff this year?
Paul Sporer
3:26
LOL probably not. Has a lot of command issues. Good example of differences between command and control. He can crush the zone all day
but throws a ton of shitty strikes
3:27
Rendon with a smash. Hope y'all bought back in (and not just bc of this hit)
Skippy

How long until Starlin Castro is hitting #2 for the Yankees?
Paul Sporer
3:27
Hopefully not long. I'm chronically a year early and y'all may remember I loved him last year
Oliver
3:28
I know it's super early, but who are you trying to buy? Sell?
Paul Sporer
3:29
Just the guys we've been discussing for the last hour. Sanchez, Nicasio. I'm pretty patient.

Mark Lowe (-4.6), Justin Wilson (-3.2), and Francisco Rodriguez (-2.1) are all down early in velocity. Is there a real Tiger's bullpen curse? Ranked 29th in RP WAR over the last 10 seasons.
Paul Sporer
3:29
Don't know that we can make much of it yet.
3:31
where you gettin those numbers btw? I see Wilson down 1 http://www.brooksbaseball.net/velo.php?player=458677&b_hand=-1&gFilt=&pFilt=FA|SI|FC|CU|SL|CS|KN|CH|FS|SB&time=year&minmax=ci&var=mph&s_type=2&startDate=03/30/2007&endDate=04/07/2016
Lowe down big and KRod down the 2 you said
so only Wilson
Paul Kastava
3:31
Better swing: Kastava or Sporer?
Paul Sporer
3:32
Still you, but I've been finding it the last 2 games. And we both smashed those triples last night. Those weren't bad defense triples.

Like Alex Wood as a streamer today?
Paul Sporer
3:32
I'm not a huge Alex Wood guy

Would you trade Darvish for Pollock in a dynasty league? Same $$$ value for both players.
Paul Sporer
3:39
Yeah I'd be OK with that

Thoughts on Corbin and Moore after their mediocre starts?
Paul Sporer
3:39
Unmoved. Didn't see anything but highlights on Corbin's (might get to it later this wk) , but saw some things I like from Moore so I'm holding firm w/both
Chip

Tyler White had great ABs the past two games. Can he move up in that Houston lineup at all? Is there any way he still plays when Reed is up?
Paul Sporer
3:41
He can and he can. Houston will move guys where they deserve to be and not get married to a lineup so if he plays well, he'll move. And I don't think Luis Valbuena and Preston Tucker or even Evan Gattis are automatically blocking anyone so he and Reed can co-exist
Jake

My 3rd base sucks (Plouffe/Castellanos) in a 12 team 5x5 OBP can Jake Lamb help me?
Paul Sporer
3:41
He could, but those 3 are probably in the same tier for me right now
Kvn
3:42
Do you think Alex Colome ends up back in the rotation at some point? Similarly, how likely is he to box out Boxberger for the closer gig?
Paul Sporer
3:42
No, I don't. They have enough SP options. If Colome does well, he can box him out. Look what Boxy did to McGee last year. But he's gotta be really good. If he's just OK, I think Boxy gets it back
Kvn
3:42
Do you prefer cheap speed or cheap power? Assume both come with an AVG hit.
Paul Sporer
3:42
Power generally speaking, contributes to all categories
well except SBs obv
brolo
3:43
Would you cut bait with Wilmer Flores in a 20 team league with no bench (start every player, every day)? Best available players are Aaron Hill, Nick Ahmed, Omar Infante...
Paul Sporer
3:43
Not for those dudes
brolo
3:43
Need a pitching flyer for a couple weeks...Cody Anderson, Tillman or Pomeranz?
Paul Sporer
3:43
I'm giving Anderson a shot w/these improved velo and CLE's recent development success on the mound
