Do you think Ken Giles has a chance of regaining closer responsibility?
Paul Sporer
2:41
I do.
Six straight scoreless apps with 5 Ks in 4.7 IP
2:42
And velo on the rise

16 team dynasty, OF is set, is Ben Revere droppable for Jerad Eickhoff?
Paul Sporer
2:43
I'd rather not. Only 12 gms from Revere so far. Let him get going and trade him for someone better than Eick to a leaguemate who really needs speed
Paul
2:43
Strasburg, Altuve, Marte, Tulo, and Chris Davis for Correa, Mazara, Pineda, Rendon, and Carlos Santana is super unfair, yes?
Paul Sporer
2:44
i mean it's so many players that it's kinda dizzying. I prefer side A, but it's not vetoable

3b breakouts question. Shaw or lamb ros? Are either or both solid starters in a 12 teaser going forward? Thanks!
Paul Sporer
2:44
Lamb
Argo

Am I utterly crazy to think that Valencia will hit 30 Hrs if he stays healthy the rest of the way?
Paul Sporer
2:45
Not *utterly* crazy, but def crazy! :)
Argo
2:45
Am I utterly crazy to think Suarez will be the better player ROS vs. Story?
Paul Sporer
2:45
Not *utterly* crazy, but def crazy! :) Joking aside, why is he better in your opinion?
Skyluker

Paul -- which side do you like better in AL only 4x4 -- Betts/Pedroia or Bautista/Cano?
Paul Sporer
2:45
Side B
Dude
2:45
Better power stash - C. Carter, K. Davis, or C-Dick?
Paul Sporer
2:46
I like KD a little better
Charles Boyer

Don't let Liss beat up on you... Your points are valid. He's just tight. Need a ranking for the back-end of my hitting... M.Upton Jr., Jake Lamb, Joc Pederson. Who would you keep and who would you package in a deal?
Paul Sporer
2:47
Chris is my boy. We just got like to go back n forth! I'd take em in reverse order. I think you deal Lamb bc he's the buzziest of the bunch rn
B
2:47
Good time to trade for Carrasco?
Paul Sporer
2:47
If the tm w/him is willing to sell, yes
Jeff

I dropped Rendon for Schoop.. Dumb?
Argo
2:47
Why does Rendon get so much love from fantasy 'experts' only to have these rather pedestrian projections from ZiPS, Steamer & Co.? What's so exciting about a 15 HR, 9 steal guy who you had to reach to get in most drafts?
Paul Sporer
2:49
He's a highly skilled hitter. Injuries ate half his season last year and he was still essentially average. Why would he only steal 9 w/5 already? I think his SBs are an indicator that he's healthy so I'm definitely buying. .280 BABIP and 4% HR/FB are light, I really think he's been running a bit cold. Hot streak coming, IMO.
Jeff, i don't think it's dumb (w/out knowing the tm count), but I wouldn't have done it

About your epic battle with Liss, I agreed with Chris until I heard you on their XM show. Building a nine man rotation is what we care about, totally correct.
Paul Sporer
2:51
Yeah in a one-off, I get that Teheran's Ws hurt him being on ATL, but I can cover that w/the rest of my rotation. Plus he won 11 on a dogshit tm last year so he's not destined to 5 Ws this year

I'm in a 12 team H2H with deep benches and I need major help with my pitching. I was thinking of picking up Ryu. What do you think of him as he's coming back?
Paul Sporer
2:51
he's on rehab, I like spec'ing on him!
Ryan
2:51
Keep forever, bat/arm balance not a consideration. Berrios or Gallo?
Paul Sporer
2:52
When all else is mostly equal, gotta go hitter. I'm not a huge Gallo guy and I do love Berrios, but pitchers break. That's just what they do.
Von Schloss
2:55
If you were doing an OF tier where would JBJ be right now?
Paul Sporer
2:55
Top 40
Julio Pepper

So Bregman has roughly an 1.100 OPS in AA. How much longer do the Astros leave him destroying the minors?
Paul Sporer
2:56
I know guys can skip AAA, but they just called up Moran so I don't think it's imminent, but I understand the AL only stash
Views lost the poll (understandably), but still has some fire tracks, including Hype!

I got Gerrit Cole & Drew Smyly for yu Darvish, Drew Pomeranz & Lucas Giolito. Re-draft league. Did I do ok?
Paul Sporer
2:57
Absolutely, espec for redraft
