Meanwhile, the Cust comp holds up. Sorry the reality of the situation doesn't sit well with you, but fantasy baseballers spend WAY too much time dealing in the 95th percentile of player projections... which is probably why they ask questions about cutting those guys after 3 weeks. http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=bat&lg=all&qual=0&type=8&season=2016&month=0&season1=2007&ind=0&team=0&rost=0&age=0&filter=&players=12164,1564

Stash Taillon or Snell is a keeper leage?

Snell

Wacha for Blackmon? I'm worried about a lingering turf toe injury.
Paul Sporer
4:00
I can take Wacha for him if you're worried

JDyson > SDyson ... if ya know what I mean
Paul Sporer

Not if SDyson is closing

Ketel Marte is my SS. Should I just pack it in and give up?
Paul Sporer
4:01
I wasn't in on him to start, so I don't give him much of a leash. I'm sure that BABIP will come up, but he's not guaranteed to stay up, either

Rajai Davis over/under 30 SB
Paul Sporer
4:01
Over bc of PT

Freddie Freeman worth buying low on?
Paul Sporer
4:02
Sure, I'm cool with that
Stan

Cody Allen- I hate it when teams use their closers for more than an inning in non save chances
Paul Sporer
4:02
Generally speaking, they just don't seem to succeed

Do you trust Darvish to be near elite? I know the command might be shaky after TJ but Harvey showed some good stuff last year.
Paul Sporer
4:02
No, I don't. Harvey actually had command pre-TJ and a much longer recovery. I wanna be wrong on Yu, but I passed for '16

Have we entered "Kanye is the greatest hip-hop artist ever" territory yet?
Paul Sporer
4:03
I think it's a viable discussion, but you'll get a lot of pushback

Would you trade deGrom and Mookie for Stanton in an OBP league?
Paul Sporer
4:03
I take it you're worried about deGrom? That's pretty steep. I think you gotta get a reutrn piece

Sano just hit a fly ball that just kept traveling and wound up as a HR in deep CF. He didn't even get all of it. Just monster power.
Paul Sporer
4:03
Total monster, for sure.
Chet Manley
4:03
Nevermind Sano just hit a home run I love him again.
Paul Sporer
4:04
LOL. Still Jack Cust right now w/potential for more
dave

Kershaw threw an Eephus pitch. Cause he needs to be more unfair.
Paul Sporer
4:04
lol gross

Hi Paul. In your podcast yesterday you and Doug were high on Tillman. But you referenced stats that I think we're out of date (7 IP, 93+ velo, etc). Did you include his mediocre start against Texas last time out, and are you still buying him?
Paul Sporer
4:11
Yeah I think we mentioned when we were recording so some time passed. Tough start in TEX, but had some BABIP hits. I'd still buy
Big Chief

Maikel Franco looks lost right now, and I reached for him in the 8th. Any cause for concern?
Paul Sporer
4:12
I reached as well bc I love the talent. Stay the course, but we might've gotten a little drunk on Spring admittedly

It just seems fair to me to compare Sano and Stanton last year (roughly half season each) than it is to count up both careers. Obviously Sano needs to prove himself over time, but I’m not seeing the difference in rates/batted ball. You may as well say Stanton = Cust too.

Paul Sporer
4:13
Fair how? Bc it makes you feel better about Sano? Why would you compare him to 74 Stanton games when Stanton has 700 played? It just doesn't make sense. Honestly, it just feels like you wanna feel better about Sano.
OBVIOUSLY he needs to prove himself and THAT is the point. His draft slot and the expectations were comically ridiculous for someone fanning 35% of the time.

I hate vetoes as much as you, but Wei-Yin Chen for CarGo? Can we really let that slide?
Paul Sporer
4:14
Of course you can. Who are you to tell people what they can and can't do with their team? Unless it's collusion, you can't just veto trades you disagree with. What if the Cargo dealer thinks he's gonna get hurt and Chen is a top-30 SP again?

Cust had a really nice 4 year run where he ran something about a 130wrc+, so it's not that insane after looking at the numbers.
Paul Sporer
4:14
No, it's not. I didn't just off-handedly make it. Stanton is the dream upside, Cust is reality right now

Would you take Tomas over Soler? Thanks Paul!
Paul Sporer

Not a Tomas guy
