Conforto/Puig. I'm not much of a Baez Believer
B.J. Upton
2:36
Have I become...mixed league-relevant?
Paul Sporer
2:36
It's Melvin, get it right or pay the price
And yeah, I'm cool riding the hot streak
Steve

Looking to sell high on Trumbo before the bottom falls out. What would you recommend targeting in a shallow 10 team mixed?
Paul Sporer
2:37
Whatever can improve your team. I wouldn't be picky. We all know about his streakiness so you're unlikely to pull the wool over someone's eyes. Just improve your team somewhere

Joey Votto and Devin Mesoraco. Concern level for both
Paul Sporer
2:38
1, 7... didn't buy Meso at all this year so it's not the slow start so much as it is I'm just not a Meso guy

Drop Greene for Graveman in a 20 team league?
Paul Sporer
2:38
Yeah I can understand that
Corey

Looking to unload David Price for a hitter in my H2H 5x5, what would you consider a good buy low target with that kind of ammo?
Paul Sporer
2:41
These questions are really hard, y'all. And by hard I mean impossible. Because the trade market isn't static. It's all league-specific and manager-specific beyond that. I understand why y'all ask so I'm not hating, I'm just saying that I can't really pin down a name. You should definitely be eyeing an early rounder. Maybe Seager plus an arm if you want to cover Price's spot. If you're looking for just a bat, maybe Abreu?
Brad
2:41
Thoughts on Rendon's slow start so far?
Paul Sporer
2:41
Not worried, I'd buy.
UptonGirl
2:41
Do you buy Melvin Upton's hot start?
Paul Sporer
2:42
Nice handle, lol. I was a Melvin Upton honk for years before finally jumping off the bandwagon, but I'm open to riding the hot streak on him rn
Randy
2:42
Jorge Soler a 10-team mixed bat, or is that too shallow?
Paul Sporer
2:43
He's on the cusp. You can ride it out for a couple more weeks if you believe in him, but he should be close to the first cut on your team in a 10 teamer
Steve
2:43
With his dip in velocity, do you see Iglecias being a good sell candidate now in a standard 5x5 league, since he seems to be just a 6 IP on a really bad CIN team?
Paul Sporer
2:45
I'm OK selling him, but I'm not too worried about the velo dip
Andrew
2:46
Can I cut Choo in a shallower H2H categories league (daily changes so I want to grab a SP)? Replacement guys like Myers, Gattis, Markakis free on waivers.
Paul Sporer
2:46
Ya the wire seems fruitful enough to do that
rpo
2:46
League mates want to try and block my Trumbo for Frazier swap- is that veto-able?
Paul Sporer
2:46
lol not even 1%. i hate vetoes so much, it's unreal
Bryan
2:46
Maeda and Wacha a good buy low for Archer? Or an overpay?
Paul Sporer
2:47
I think that's an overpay tbh. I love Wacha (as is well documented) and I'm buying Maeda. BTW, I'd think it was an overpay even if Archer wasn't struggling SO BADLY
RIP Prince
2:47
Aaron Nola just got dropped in my 12 team mixed, but I don't really need another pitcher (Have Sale, Kluber, Salazar, Maeda, Velasquez, and Corbin). Should I drop a guy like O'Day to grab him?
Paul Sporer
2:48
He's certainly more valuable than O'Day in a 12-teamer and I don't see Britton losing the job, so yes
Horn Please ThankYou
2:48
You've repeatedly compared Sano to Jack Cust - what about his profile says Cust to you instead of Stanton? Just because Stanton is the best case scenario and that doesn't often pan out, or something more specific?
Paul Sporer
2:50
yeah Stanton is a pipedream right now while Cust was the exact guy we've seen Sano be so far: elite walker, insane power, strikeout master. Sano has upside for sure, but present-day Sano is peak Cust
Which isn't necessarily a dig. We as a fantasy baseball community spend way too much time focusing on the 95th percentile upside of guys and I get it, but it's a dose of reality to point out how similar his statistical profile is to Cust

See you Sunday? Are you ready!
Paul Sporer
2:51
V excited!
Andrew

Chapman owner here in 6x6 roto with K/9 and NSV, would you target Miller in a trade as NSV insurance? Can I give Teheran/Eickhoff/Finnegan for him?
Paul Sporer
2:51
yeah I'd get as many shares of Betances, Miller, Chapman as I could
Chris
2:51
Really liking the weekly SP Guide Updates, Paul. Thanks! In terms of AL guys on the DL, do you like Gausman or Henderson Alvarez to be useful soon?
Paul Sporer
2:52
Thanks! Going to have something tomorrow, too, and then the FAAB piece this weekend (earlier this time around, too!). Prefer Gausman for sure
CarlWeathers
2:52
Is Jon Gray worth rostering at this point? His home field speaks for itself, but his pedigree makes it tempting.
Paul Sporer
2:52
It's tough bc guys are generally worse on the road and that's the only place you feel comfortable with him. It takes a deeper league to matter, tbh
CJ
2:52
How would you rank Lucroy, Gomes, Martin & Salty? I assume close to the way I just wrote them.
