Is this thing on?
Paul Sporer

Yes!

Who do you like more in dynasty? Mazara or Corey Seager?
Paul Sporer
2:27
It's still Seager, but these are both A-level prospects so the margin is thin
I've been enjoying Views, but it's not a classic. It has gotten back on Thank Me Later which is definitely still fire.

Eickhoff or Bauer? Shooting for upside in redraft.

Bauer for upside

Paul! Love your work. I'd love to hear YOUR thoughts on Greinke. Is it just "he'll be fine" or is there reason to worry? Thoughts on trading him for an also underperforming J. Upton in an OBP league?
Paul Sporer
2:29
He was a guy I didn't love coming into the season so I'm not super encouraged about going out and buying. I don't think he's this bad, but I saw him as more #2 than fantasy ace. I'm OK with the challenge trade of struggling arm for struggling bat.

John Lamb - am I leading him to slaughter next week? at ClV and Sea at home.
Paul Sporer
2:30
I say start him. This was a guy Eno & I liked coming into the season but then I backed off some with the back injury. Now that's he's ostensibly healthy, I'll be using him where I have him

How do you rank these ROS - Harvey, Lester, Quintana, Salazar, Hamels?
Paul Sporer
2:32
Still on Harvey so he's tops. Then the other four are pretty close. Quintana has jumped up to be near those guys, but he's still bringing up the rear: Lester, Salazar, Hamels, Q. Not any skills changes backing Q's surge so while I'm a fan and he's moved up, it's not enough to be in that tier with those gys

Clay Davis
2:32
As a Berrios man, how do you feel about his upcoming starts?
Paul Sporer
2:32
Generally or against someone in particular? The stuff is electric. He's definitely finding his footing, but I think he'll perform in the summer

Why is eno worried about Kluber??
Paul Sporer
2:32
Bad fastball

Do you know where I can find a woodshed that I can take Pineda to?
Paul Sporer
2:33
LOL. I got lit up for suggesting to cut him in shallower mixers (10-12 tms)
Jackie Bradley Jr.
2:33
Eno says I strike out too much, what say you?
Paul Sporer
2:35
Listen, I've been a JBJ guy from the jump, but I recognize he's not as good as his August last year and this 18-gm run. He looks like one of those super-streaky guys (bc everyone is streaky to a degree, but some are more so... see also: Davis, Khris). Ks are down this year, but SwStr% isn't so he'll probably be around 25%. He Ks too much to be a STAR, but he's a v good player and PT is guaranteed by defense. Buy.

just traded mazara and drury for sonny gray. What do you think?
Paul Sporer
2:36
That's alright. I'm a Maz honk so I probably wouldn't have, but that's a real buy low. Sold two rookies (or near-rookies... unsure on Drury's qualification) for a proven #2. If Gray is just in a funk and not hurt, you'll feel good about that when he reels off 13 starts of a 2.50 ERA at some point
Dave
2:36
Eickoff's last four starts have been pretty bad, Ks are down and not using the slider. You buying, selling or holding in 15 team mixers?
Paul Sporer
2:37
Still a major platoon split guy. And when I looked back AFTER the fact, I realized I shouldn't have played him v. ATL even though it's crappy ass ATL. They stacked lefties and he just hasn't found a way to consistently get them out. He's kinda like Matt Wisler in that respect. You can hold, but I certainly wouldn't buy
Alex
2:37
Karns worth an add in 12-team mixed? Think increased velocity can help keep the ball in the yard?
Paul Sporer
2:38
Still struggling to keep the ball in the yard. I'd say he's a sreamer at best bc of the Ks

Who do you like best out of these in a redraft- Smyly, Stroman, Gray and Tai Walker?
Paul Sporer
2:38
Walker
Aaron
2:38
I traded Taijuan Walker for Anthony Rendon in h2h points league. Did I do okay?
Paul Sporer
2:38
Yes you did. Big fan of both and you sold high to buy low. Rendon isn't hurt as far as I know so he will get it together (IMO, at least)

W matz up in the air, do mets ever give montero a shot or is verrett the guy?
Paul Sporer
2:39
Verrett seems to be their long man for these one-offs, but I'd like to see Montero get a shot. Has a much higher ceiling, but Verrett's floor is probably appealing to them. Just get 5-6 strong and let the offense/bullpen try to win it

Loving the podcast, Paul. Thanks. Do I continue hanging on to DeScalfani or grab one of Duffey, Tillman, or Wright? And which one of those three?
Paul Sporer
2:40
I'd get Tillman over him. Maybe even the hot hand of Wright, but Tillman first
Problem is we just don't know when the knuckler will go haywire so it's VERY risky
Argo
2:40
Rank your concern, most to least: Pineda, Keuchel, Kluber, Price
Paul Sporer
2:40
I think you just did!

Do you think Jake Lamb could outperform Longoria in an AVG league ROS?
