Awful news about Prince. RIP.

Tell me a good thing about Kyle Seager
Paul Sporer
2:04
A .139 BABIP will correct. I'd buy.
Pitching Is Bad
2:04
My pitching has been awful. Should I add Kazmir in a 12 teamer? Also, I cant wait to drop Shane Greene.
Paul Sporer
2:05
Is Kazmir really a fix for bad pitching right now? Not so sure. But I'm OK moving on from Greene in a 12-teamer. I'd hold in deeper, but dude needs to throw damn strikes
THe Price is wrong Bitch
2:05
What's going on with Price today
Paul Sporer
2:05
Not watching, you tell me? Line score looks solid
Haymaker
2:05
What do you make of Pomeranz? Picked him up as a streamer in a 12 team mixed but he has been really good. Ride it out or drop him for Iwakuma or Conley?
Paul Sporer
2:06
I was HUGE on Pomeranz last year and I'm chronically a year early (something I always mention/whine about bc it just never stops, lol). So I'm in. Sit tight even w/Iwak and Conley being reasonable options

I have Semien, Story, and Dan Murph at infield. Jung Ho is on my DL and coming back soon. Who's gotta go?
Paul Sporer
2:07
Semien of those 3 if you must cut. I'd try to work a trade. Surely someone needs a MI?
Steve
2:07
traded billy hamilton for jose berrios and 10 free agent dollars after every team in my league rejected like 15 better offers. is it worth it?
Paul Sporer
2:07
yeah that's alright
DB
2:07
Just traded for Harvey & Caesar Hernandez and sent back Keuchel & Pillar. Any concerns about Harvey's slow start? I thought it was a good buy-low opportunity.
Paul Sporer
2:07
I agree that it was a good buy-low And you got a nice parting gift from Keuchel v. DET. I'm not worried about Harvey yet. I take them at their word that it's a fixable mechanical flaw

Do you start Rich Hill in New York tonight?
Paul Sporer
2:08
I wouldn't, no.
Pitching Is Bad

Erasmo seems to be thriving in Tampa. Obviously SSS, but could he be useful in mixed leagues?
Paul Sporer
2:08
Definitely. He was last year, too.
BigTimeNW
2:08
Who are a couple SP you're targeting to trade for based on what you've seen so far this year?
Paul Sporer
2:09
Harvey, Kluber, Pomeranz, Wacha, Conley, Nola, Chen
Timmy
2:09
Have you seen anything in Tyler White over the past few weeks that has changed how you view him going forward?
Paul Sporer
2:10
Didn't know enough about him prior to last year to make that distinction, sorry. But I like this guy. He's just a hitter. I know the power was a concern, but it's nice to have 5 HRs banked
Haymaker
2:10
Thoughts on Domingo Santana? Drop D. Span for him in 12 team mixed roto? Only 3 starting OF slots but 2 Utility spots.
Paul Sporer
2:10
Really impressed early on. Check out August's piece: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/domingo-santana-is-making-the-george-springer-adjustment/ I can make that swap just for the upside. Span is v steady, but you can find a Span-type on the wire if Santana randomly melted down
Please Help
2:11
Please rank the following: Greene, Graveman, Bassitt, Holland.
Paul Sporer
2:11
I think you just did
Tony the Tiger
2:11
Jarrod Saltalamacchia for MVP! He obviously won't keep this up, but he sure is making a case for staying as the Tigers starting catcher even when McCann returns.
Paul Sporer
2:11
I don't see it happening. He's hitting well, but he's still bad behind the dish and McCann is lauded for his catching. It's probably gonna be more of a 60-40, though. And I thought it'd be more 75-25 coming into the season
Ryan
2:11
It really feels like Francisco Rodriguez is on borrowed time. Who's the guy I should be stashing as his replacement, Lowe or Wilson?
Paul Sporer
2:12
Wilson. Even though he's a lefty, they have other lefties who can get those key outs in 6th-8th, so I'd spec on J.Wilson
Gest
2:12
Are you a Porcello backer? He put up good lines against Toronto twice, then a very good line against Tampa. Can you figure this guy out?
Paul Sporer
2:14
Long time Porcello honk over here. Love the early K%, but I doubt it holds as the SwStr is static from last year. But he doesn't walk guys, can miss a fair number of bats (20-22%), and keeps the ball down (though he's closer to 1.0 GB/FB these days). Closed really strong last year, too
Birdman
2:14
What are your thoughts on Joey Rickard ROS?
Paul Sporer
2:14
Think he'll be solid. Not special, but decent guy atop a good lineup with some cheap speed
AL Pitching Coach
2:15
Is Soria worth rostering anymore in an AL-only right now?
Paul Sporer
2:15
Nah, you can find another RP
Bobbya
2:15
Hearing a lot about Jake Lamb would you drop Castellanos to pick him up?
Paul Sporer
2:15
I get the Lamb love, but I think Casty's ceiling is at the very least as high and IMO, higher
Bill
2:15
As someone who overpaid for AJ Reed in a keeper auction draft, can you reassure me he will be up and get regular ABs at some point this season despite Tyler White's success?
