Matt Moore - any new thoughts after last night's start? Basically made one mistake to Joey Rickard, otherwise looked good. Has he been promoted beyond streamer in shallow loeagues?
Paul Sporer
2:39
I was at softball, but that's Jason's assessment, too. In fact, that's been the theme - one bad inning... hell, one bad pitch for Moore per start has kept him from flat out beasting. I'm holding for sure, even in shallow lgs. It's coming along

No, not Rendon

What are your thoughts on Raisel Iglesias so far?
Paul Sporer
2:41
Solid. I cooled on him after the price skyrocketed. As much as I like him, I know there will be bumps and likely an IP limit. He'll have a hot run at some point for sure. Still LOVE long-term

Tillman or Porcello?
Paul Sporer
2:44
Gah, y'all killin me with having to choose between guys you know I like!! I'll take Tilly

Should I drop Addison Russell for Diaz at this point?
Paul Sporer
2:45
GET OUT!

14 team league, bating lineup mimics real life (8 defensive positions 1 UTIL), would you drop Deshields for Jarrod Dyson?
Paul Sporer
2:46
Nahhhh
Mike

IS Cozart for real at all?
Paul Sporer
2:46
I buy the pop since we started seeing it last year, but no way on the AVG
Mucho Maas

With DeSclafani coming off the DL soon, who would you drop for him between Berrios, Nola, Hill, Pomeranz? Or drop Disco himself?
Paul Sporer
2:47
I think Disco himself in that grouping.

I'm rooting for the Yankees to send Severino to the minors for a month to get sorted out. You think he needs that or is just that his babip is extremely high. Got him in a keeper league so I'd rather he get fixed if that's what he needs.
Paul Sporer
2:47
I wasn't super-high on him coming in. Needs seasoning and I'm not sure they can afford for it to be on the job http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/tipping-pitches-cutting-bait-on-three-top-60-arms/

I know it's hard to evaluate, but how legit do you think Steven wright is?
Paul Sporer
2:48
So hard to evaluate knucklers. Let's just ride the wave.

11 team league processes waivers weekly Sunday night. No bench, all players stats count while they're owned. Worth putting in claims for Berrios/Manaea/Fulmer and cut Shark?
Paul Sporer

Do y'all even read or listen to my stuff? :) kidddddddiiiinnnggg: http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/the-sleeper-and-the-bust-episode-338-its-call-up-season/#more-83971

The pitching prospects are coming! When does Turner finally arrive? What about Crawford?
Paul Sporer
2:49
Trea and JP? Not sure. Honestly, I didn't see half these arms coming up this early, so I'm def useless in this avenue.
Andrew

Paul! please pick 3. Samardja, Gausman, Berrios, Manea, Porcello, Pineda, Matt Moore? ROS,10 team H2H league.
Paul Sporer
2:49
Why do you repeat every question you ask like nine times? I'm not answering this as punishment. I'm sorry, but it's frustrating.

with velo down we have to cut bait w/ McGee asap, right?
Paul Sporer
2:50
On the one hand, it sucks bc his velo is down. On the other hand, it's 7 IP. RPs can turn on a dime. until his job is threatened, I'm staying the course
Shawn
2:51
Belt,Piscotty, Souza, or Dickerson? The Drop would be Mazara. No specific need
Paul Sporer
2:51
Wait those are all on the wire?? Well get Pisc
Mucho Maas
2:51
Would you trade VV for Blackmon if your best sources of steals are Heyward, Braun, and Burns? (I would cut Burns if I got Blackmon)
Paul Sporer
2:51
Yes

9-team 45-man roster NL Only League... Is Nicolino worth rostering?
Paul Sporer
2:51
I really don't like him. He couldn't K us.
Mike
2:52
If I have Kang, Dev Travis, and now D'arnaud on the DL. Do I cut one to create a bit more lineup flexibility? 12th h2h 3 bench, 1 DL spot. Options to pickup are K Kiermeyer, Khris Davis, other assorted junkers.
Paul Sporer
2:52
ya, in a 12 tm you don't have to hold 'em all. 2 C? if 1 C, dump TDA. Hell, if 2 C, you can dump him. Scoop Davis and see if he's gonna stay hot with his recent power surge. seems to be feelin it a bit and cutting into that K% (though it's still high bc it was SOOOOO bad early on)
Dave
2:52
Can you rank Rodon, Eickoff, and Aaron Sanchez?
Paul Sporer
2:54
I think you just did. I'm coming around on Eick. A couple weeks ago, I'd have said Sanchez then Eick. Those 2 are really close and have the same issue (lefties).
