4 all year? that's insane. just too many DL stints in MLB to limit it like that. As for the question, I'd probably wait given how precious moves are

Sano - it's like looking in the mirror

Is there a way Preston Tucker still gets ABs in the lineup? Crazy to think that someone hitting as well as him is blocked, but I don't see a way
Paul Sporer
2:46
Don't overrate 8 games. He's an 0-for-6 run from a .230 AVG. Just an 0-for-6 would take him from .300 to .230. Don't get hung up on the rate stats right now with hitters.

Bottom two hitters on my roster are Tyler White and Buxton, who ha keeper value. When Brantley gets off the DL I need to clear room. I will try to shop them but if I can't make a deal is it time to just give up on Buxton?
Paul Sporer
2:46
No probably not. I think you gotta stick longer with Bux if you drafted him

Swap Story for Desmond now while their prices are likely at extremes? Or is Desi cooked?
Paul Sporer
2:47
I generally back Desmond, but Coors cures a lot of ills so even when Story struggles, I don't think he'll crater. I'd sit tight. Need more to move Story now

What is your view of trade vetoes in fantasy leagues? Can/should they ever be used except in egregrious cases of lopsided value/collusion?
Paul Sporer
2:47
Only if you can prove collusion. By and large, vetoes are utter bullshit

New members of the Tigers bullpen taking care of business. VerHagen still under whatever curse was placed upon them last year
Paul Sporer
2:49
Lowe was SO good last year. Comes to Detroit...
Yoenis Envy
2:49
worth trading anything much for VV, given current hype (12K!) and fact that he'll get give or take 8 wins all year?
Paul Sporer
2:49
No, it'd be a terrible time to trade for him

VV's 100 and 101st pitches were at 96 and 97 mph respectively.
Paul Sporer
2:50
Bc he's a stud.

Cole Hamels + ___ = Matt Harvey? What's a "fair" position player you could toss in to make this work?
Paul Sporer
2:51
I know it seems like a copout, but it's impossible to say. Every league is different. Every lg manager in every lg is different so it's just too hard to pin something down like that. Hamels + a decent player (like round 10-14, maybe?) could get it done. but if you're trading with me, I'd require more bc I think Harvey is a beast and I'm not worried
Yoenis Envy

Any idea what's happening in the OAK outfield? Is Billy Beane "showcasing" Crisp (as much as such a thing is possible) in order to trade?
Paul Sporer
2:51
Think they're just using him while healthy. It's SO early. too soon to freak
Daniel
2:51
I have questions, but I'm really here to see what Char is up to.
Paul Sporer
2:51
Damn Daniel! She's sleepin behind me. That little stinkbug needs a bath
which is what will happen immediately after this chat
2:52
BTW, gonna be a shorter chat today. Headed out of town tomorrow so I'm really tight on time today

VV or T Walker ROS?
Paul Sporer
2:52
Walker
Otis

Is it finally over for Wil Myers if he doesn't have a successful season, is he ever going to cash in on potential?
Paul Sporer
2:56
He was pretty good last yr when he played. 2014 is the only down season performance-wise.
Crumbs
2:56
nola or Rodon?
Paul Sporer
2:56
Rodon
Anthony
2:56
Given that bullpen, do you think your Tigers can challenge for a wildcard?
Paul Sporer
2:58
Yeah, it hasn't even been as bad as is being suggested. It's just extra frustrating any time they struggle bc of the history. Without the history, we'd barely notice this year
William Wallace
2:58
Hosmer or Freddie freeman, keep forever?
Paul Sporer
2:58
Flip a coin and go preference honestly
Anne Tony Oh
2:58
Do you like Gallo more than Reed considering Gallo's gangbusters start and low-20s Triple-A K rate?
Paul Sporer
2:59
If that's the reasoning, no, not at all. 7 games doesn't erase 390 of a 35% rate
Crumbs
2:59
Should I use my #2 wavier and Wil Myers or Parra for Brett Gardner?
Paul Sporer
2:59
Parra
Argo
2:59
Napoli or B. Park? Lol
