Drop Happ for Velazquez?
Paul Sporer
3:45
Sure, you can. VV has higher upside, but it's more short-term bc he will face a limit
Scott Servais
3:45
I've got an itch for Tony Zych!
Paul Sporer
3:46
Scratch it! Benoit succeeds as an 8th inn. guy so leave him there and let Cishek have the 7th

Jason Hammel has either gotten injured or seen his ERA increase by at least 1.30 in the 2nd half in every single season from 2010-2015. I don't know how you could possibly trust that guy to pitch an entire effective season knowing that.
Paul Sporer
3:49
Yeah that kinda works til it doesn't. Dan Haren had that rep and then got better in 4 of 5 seasons from '10-14. I'll still bet on the skills.

STARLIN or SOUZA?
Paul Sporer

STARLIN!

Okay to drop Alex Gordon in a 10-team mixed league? He's decent across the board, I guess, but there just seems to be no upside.
Paul Sporer
3:50
Yeah you can probably find better upside in that kind of league
Josiah

Add Sam Dyson and drop Brad Miller?
Paul Sporer
3:50
Think I answered that earlier
Mike

Aaron Sanchez worth a pickup in a 10-team standard league?
Paul Sporer
3:50
Depends who you're cutting, but yeah probably so bc he has the kind of upside to be special
(albeit for like 150 IP)

Is this a good 12 team mixed rotation: Archer, Hamels, Jose, Severino, Salazar, Tillman? McCullers and Heaney on DL
Paul Sporer
3:51
Yeah, assuming that Jose is Jose Fernandez. Fernanez/Archer are #1s, Hamels/Salazar are #2s and then you're massage it from there. Tillman seems cuttable and should probably be the stream spot

So I've been looking at the shift data just added and I see Jose Bautista had a 20 wRC+ against the shift last year (good for second worst) in 121 PAs, a number which should rise. How concerned about this should I be?
Paul Sporer
3:52
Haven't dove in yet, but we've seen the shift eat some AVGs alive. Teix and McCann jump to mind. I think we already aware that Bautista is a AVG risk, but this strengthens the argument

You sold me on Conley this off-season, so I'm anxious to see how he performs today. Not exactly the best match-up though. Can he crack the top 50 this year?

Halp

Super deep league is Norris worth stashing on DL spot?
Paul Sporer
3:52
No
BBK

Bullpen Wars draft this weekend. 12 team. 7 RP slots. No bench. SV/HD are NOT counted. Any tips?
Paul Sporer

That's cool! Get Caminero
Erick

Billy Hamilton worth rostering in a non-roto league?
Paul Sporer
3:56
Maybe. Really depends on format

Would you rather have Starlin Casto or Trevor Story?
Paul Sporer

Castro
Ryan

David
4:04
Conley
Conley's FB has gone up to 96 which is nice
Hey there, first pitch strike!

Why didn't anyone hype Daniel Murphys swing change?
ken m
4:05
I'm loving Daniel Murphy this season. Talk me off him. 160 R/RBI's?
