But yeah he has more risk than your avg SP, imo

Was offered his Jason Heyward straight up for my Craig Kimbrel. H2H points league where I'm stacked at closer (Jansen, Rondon, Familia... draft went sideways, don't ask), so losing Kimbrel not a huge deal. But am I getting good value? Heyward's soft contact and wrist issues scare me.

the last line is key. I think there's a reason behind his numbers and it might not be fixed without a DL stint or even until the offseason. it's close, but I might still pass

Why don't you guys distinguish between different types of innings limits? My sense is that you put a pretty steep discount on a guy who's only likely to give you 170 or 180 IP. That totally makes sense for a guy who's going to have starts skipped, etc. -- maybe to save some innings for playoffs -- so that it will be hard to get any other IP out of that SP slot. But if a going-nowhere team is going to just pitch a guy every 5 days until he's done, the fantasy manager has a chance to replace those missing IP (at a lower quality, probably, but still). This is why -- at least in shallow leagues where those replacement IP might be pretty decent -- I feel like Velasquez is widely undervalued. I look at him like old school Tulo -- you knew you were only getting 120 GP, but you also knew the missed games would be in big chunks, so you had to think of it as 120 Tulo + 25 waiver wire SS. Am I daft or does this make sense?

You're not daft, but I think it's hard to really project those things. I think what you're saying makes sense re: VV, but what if they mess around and keep winning (they won't, but what if?) and then all of a sudden, they're wondering if they should skip him in season to make it to the finish line.
OK y'all, I gotta get going here soon. Round Rock isn't that far away, but I live in South Austin and traffic is a bish

Martin

Trumbo's line ROS. 20 more dingers?
Paul Sporer
4:29
Sure, but with a .240 AVG. He's crushing the ball, but I feel like this hot start is nothing new
Mark
4:29
Where did VV's Ks go? Or was his last few starts just low K opponents?
Paul Sporer
4:30
Well he wasn't going to be overlooked after that SD gem. Just ebbs and flows of a season I imagine

Seags
Re: Reyes
4:30
Since Reyes situation is such an unknown would you deal Story?
Paul Sporer
4:30
No. I don't think he's really going to force Story out of PT.
Sam
4:31
I get Giancarlo and B Phillips for Altuve. Short on power, not speed. Yes or no?
Paul Sporer
4:31
Hot!

Hey Paul, big fan of Sleeper and the Bust. Just wondering who you think are the top 10 starting pitchers ROS. Thanks!
Paul Sporer
4:31
I'll do a full ranking soon. I think we're going to get rid of the NL SP Tiers that I do every month and instead I'll do everyone.
Adam
4:32
Liked hearing about Eddie Butler on the pod. Would you drop someone like Trop or Eickhoff for him or Bauer? Looking for a solid back-end guy.
Paul Sporer
4:32
They're all in the same tier area so go with personal preferences there?
Minty
4:32
OBP/QS dynasty Urias+Quintana for CMart(scary shoulder), Giolito, and Conforto(6th OF)
Paul Sporer
4:32
Gimme the trio
No Regrets
4:33
I'm being stupid not to give up Bauer for Dyson (ALOn) right? I need pitchers of all types. Stupid stupid stupid....
Paul Sporer
4:33
Bauer > Dyson
Just bc he's an SP and still has lot of talnet
talent even
Thunder!

Xander or Story?
Paul Sporer

Lightning!
