Hey y'all! Thanks for coming out!
Huge surprise that the Tigers bullpen is melting down. So weird.

Are you buying Shane Greene after that nasty display last night?
Paul Sporer
2:03
LOL, seriously? I've been touting him all winter. And last year.

Is Houston ever going to forget trading away Vincent Velasquez? He is the definition of hot fire right now! V-I-N-C-E
Paul Sporer
2:04
They knew what they were doing. They needed a stud RP to compete this year. Yeah he could've probably done a Giles imitation in relief, but VV is a starter and they couldn't just take him out of that role for the team.
And I'm a HUGE VV backer, but it is the Padres.

I streamed VV for all three teams today. Thinking I may just keep him! Thoughts, and what is his floor? thanks!
Paul Sporer
2:05
Great start. Use ANYONE v. SD at this point. Ride VV while you can bc he will NOT make it to the finish line with innings.

Who needs porn when you have VV!

What the hell do I do with my three aces Archer, Keuchel, and Degrom?
Paul Sporer
2:05
Sit tight. deGrom the only real concern bc he's hurt

Velasquez is having quite the afternoon... drop a guy like Hendricks for him in a K/BB league?
Paul Sporer
2:05
Yes, I was drafting him ahead of Hendricks in March, tbh
2:06
Not tooting my own horn, either. It's 2 starts against modest competition. Just saying I've been preferring VV all season so far

hey Paul, would you move Nola for AJ Ramos if you were looking for saves? I have E-Rod, McCullers, and Gausman waiting in the wings with some other good high tier SP.
Paul Sporer
2:06
Definitely. Ramos has upper-tier closer potential. He's really good.
Cory S.

Which trade is better *now*: Giles or Kimbrel? VV is making Houston fans squirm.
Paul Sporer
2:07
Both really helped the respective selling teams. That's why bad teams don't need closers. But if Houston gets to the playoffs and has a strong bullpen, they won't regret it. They're goals were different and made moving a 23 y/o developing arm possible
2:08
Plus judging a trade after the guy gets to face SD is always gonna work favorably for that guy

Logan Morrison has a 40% K rate... And a 75% GB rate! Why are the Rays starting him! Will Steven Pearce earn a full time role?
Paul Sporer
2:08
Not sure. He's not v good. Of course, same can be said of Pearce. He's not all that good, either.
Otis

Gerardo Parra or Matt Holliday ROS?
Paul Sporer
2:08
Parra

You liked Harvey to get a lot of Ks this year - is there anything that he's not doing that you expected him to do that is causing his lack of Ks?
Paul Sporer
2:09
Stuff is a little off, I'm not concerned long-term
Jeet

Should I be worried about Ian Desmond? I traded ERod away for him and Baez so I am inclined to give him time (it is a keep 12 league and I have 15 players I would keep over him)
Paul Sporer
2:09
Gotta sit tight
Otis
2:09
Will your tigers ever have a palatable bullpen?
Paul Sporer
2:10
I just don't understand it. It's SO frustrating, though
Leggo

Drop any of Gose, LoMo, Rollins or B. Miller for Butler in my deep AL only?
Paul Sporer
2:10
*shrug* personal preference. nothing jumps out there

Paul, in a keeper (triple slash offensive cats) where I have Arenado and Donaldson. Would you ever consider trying to deal one of them for another superstud at another position, or just let it ride in a UTIL spot?
Paul Sporer
2:11
if you get the right offer, sure, but it'd have to be a first rounder or two early rounders to plug a hole somewhere. otherwise just ride 2 stud 1st-rounders

Also, I know this is fantasy oriented, but it's worth pointing out right now that MLBN has had Hawk Harrelson broadcasted day games twice this week. No one deserves this.
Paul Sporer
2:11
lol
Miguel Sano

Am I a buy low or a SELL NOW?
Paul Sporer
2:13
I wasn't that interested in the first place. But if you invested him and are surprised by a run like this, then you weren't paying attention. When a guy fans 36% of the time in 335 PA, a 42% mark for 30 PA is hardly surprising. Buy if you believe, but you gotta hold if you own

Should I be trying to buy Buxton in dynasties right now?
Paul Sporer

if you believe in him
