Thoughts on Luis Severino? How patient should one be in a dynasty league. Is the struggle real? Or due to his high BABIP can we expect sunny skies ahead this season?
Wil Myers

You've mentioned in the past week or so that you're high on me. What (if anything) in my numbers makes you optimistic that I can sustain my early success?
Paul Sporer
2:03
Hell, I've been saying that since winter! I'd like to see your previous BB totals, but I honestly see the Ks coming down a bit and BBs going up a bit the rest of the way. Myers is a really good hitter, health has been the question, not skills

Hey Paul. I hope you're rocking Curtis's pale yellow combo today. Also hope you'll weigh in on an AL deal: Felix, Trumbo, and T. White (only keepable name) for Machado and Brantley. Thanks!

Gimme side B so hard

Thoughts on Eickhoff? Is he a must own in 12 team mixed leagues?
Paul Sporer
2:05
Yeah, I think so. The strikeouts have been nice throughout his short MLB career

Will Melvin Upton remain relevant
Paul Sporer
2:06
He's gotta keep running to offset that AVG awfulness
Shaawingggg
2:06
Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute....there's a guy pitching today named J. Eikhoff????? Daaaaaaa!
Paul Sporer
2:06
lol where ya been?!

Need pitching- looking to flip V Mart for a starter. What tier of SP is a realistic target?
Paul Sporer
2:07
Kinda impossible to answer. It really depends what your market will pay. It's different in every league and by every manager. I don't think you can get a top tier guy, but maybe like a Jake Odorizzi level guy?

Thoughts on Jose Berrios so far? Heard he was getting squeezed last outing, and that curve looks electric
Paul Sporer
2:08
Filthy stuff, but needs to work on commanding it. Standard rookie issues. I'm still buying because if it clicks, he can take off and be a 4+ month contributor

12-team mixed. four OF. regular categories with walks added. 8 keep forever. Who is the odd man out of Inciarte, Soler or Span? I have both Revere and Inciarte coming off the DL and don't want to put either Soler or 20+ steals on the wire for nothing.
Paul Sporer
2:09
It's tough, but that just happens in 10-12 teamers sometimes. Honestly, I think it's Inciarte. If you can't make a move, he's the cut. Soler name value & team would likely get him picked up off the wire and then Span/Inciarte aren't too different skills-wise, but Span on the MUUUUUCH better team

Watched Hector Santiago via Gameday, and they said he threw no fastballs at all, just a sinker at 90 and a change. Is that cause his FB was so slow it didn't qualify or just some mlb nonsense? Getting worried.

Easily his lowest all year - http://www.brooksbaseball.net/velo.php?player=502327&b_hand=-1&time=game&minmax=ci&var=mph&s_type=2&gFilt=&pFilt=FA|SI|FC|CU|SL|CS|KN|CH|FS|SB&startDate=01/01/2016&endDate=01/01/2017 Did he look hurt or anything? I'd reluctant to react too much to one start unless you saw something that worries you re: injury

when are you going to get out to the Bay Area?

When I can afford it!

Any concern about Richards with the 'fatigue?'
Paul Sporer
2:12
Whattya mean? He's made it into the sixth in 4 of 6 starts and he's strong third-time-through http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?id=richaga01&year=&t=p#times::none

Realize they may all have BA issues but ROS - C. Carter, Ozuna, K. Davis, or Park?
Paul Sporer
2:12
yeah they're all kinda similar, so it's another one of those that boils down to some personal preference
2:13
we discussed Carter & Davis recently on the podcast... actually yesterday
Khris Davis or Park probably my favorites outta that crew
Thompson
2:13
Drop Corbin for Graveman?
Paul Sporer
2:14
Dang, I probably wouldn't personally because I was bought in on Corb coming into the season, but I get it. He's being beaten around the yard. Personally I'm waiting another start or two, but if you wanna do that, it's passable

Conforto or Mazara in OBP dynasty?
Paul Sporer
2:14
Conforto, but really like both
RAP

Thoughts on Dozier ROS? Bad 2nd half last year combined with slow start this year has me concerned
Paul Sporer
2:15
Still has 4 HR, 2 SB, though. ZIPS still gives him 20-11 rest of way with .241 AVG. I can see that

12-team H2H; OBP, QS, K/9

My team is killing it in pretty much every pitching category, largely due to a staff of Sale, Thor, Harvey, Stroman, Wacha, Richards, and Hendricks, with Giolito at the ready (7SP/3RP league).

So, question: what's a reasonable get for Sale in your opinion? I tried straight-up for Crush but got denied. Braun owner has interest, maybe try that one-for-one?
Paul Sporer
2:16
You can shoot for the highest level. Obv that guy said no, but that's why these questions are so hard bc someone else could have Crush and say yes. But obv Sale is a total ace so you should be getting a super-premium bat
2:17
Stop repeating questions, y'all
