Sell CMart or hold and hope for better days ahead? His numbers are nowhere near as good as last year and besides him I have Lester, Carrasco, Kluber, Hill, Raisel, Conley, and Hendricks
Paul Sporer
4:02
Ks are down, but hard to be upset w/3.14 ERA & 1.05 WHIP. I understand that LOB% and BABIP suggest worse days ahead so I get trying to sell him. But it's not like he's trash

Not playing for this year, and I'm pretty ok in the outfield, but I'm thinking of stashing a guy to see if I luck into an elite player. Who would you use the spot on, Mazara or Benintendi?
Paul Sporer

Maz

Thoughts on Archer in a keeper league? Worth pursuing at a discounted price? Will he "right" the ship? Keep forever league
Paul Sporer
4:03
I'm definitely concerned. Just not commanding like last year (and years before). Has injury precursors with prime velo and heavy slider usage. that said, if the discount is sharp enough, I'm down to buy.

Do you like Rich Hill or Taijuan Walker more for this season?
Paul Sporer
4:03
Walker, but I'm back in on Hill after panicking early

Assuming he gets activated, do you start Darvish against Pittsburgh? Also--Boxberger or Colome??
Paul Sporer
4:04
I assume you paid a decent price for him, so I'd be inclined to start him bc his talent is such that he can rip anyone as long as he's healthy. With TJ there is no rhyme or reason to struggles. Some days they just don't have it (go look at Waino's return season... just had some random 5-6 ER outings)

Stroman or Quintana ROS?
Paul Sporer
4:05
Q, slightly. Has 3 200 IP seasons under his belt. Stro yet to log one.

Start Addison Russell or Derek Dietrich at 2B? (Keeping Gordon on my bench)
Paul Sporer
4:06
Addy (though I'm pro-DD in a lot of cases)

Benoit or Doolittle better option for holds and possible saves? Madsen overrated. 30% line drive rate
Paul Sporer
4:07
You don't think the 30% LD rate is fishy with the rest of the profile? Hard% way down. Still getting tons of swings-and-misses. I'll say Doodoo for HDs, but not sure Madson is overrated

Paul, you need to branch out from your hip-hop hole. Extreme metal can be twice as exhilarating...
Paul Sporer

I'm all set, thanks! :)

Drop any of trace, Dietrich, grichuk, Domingo for Mallex Smith in 14 team OBP?
Paul Sporer
4:08
Need speed? Drop Domingo for him if so

Best local beer in Austin?

Franco or Carpenter ROS?
Paul Sporer
4:08
Coinflip, but I lean to higher upside which is Franco

Buchter, Giles, Knebel worth speculative stashes for next year? I'm done this year. Any others?
Paul Sporer
4:09
Giles. But trying to spec saves a month out is hard enough let alone a year out

Been shopping CCarter in 10 tm OBP H2H league, with no success -- I may be aiming too high (shot down when I asked for Nola, for example) What's a fair return among SP for him? Among OF?
Paul Sporer
4:10
Ya, that's too high. i think everyone knows his story. Super streaky power bat. Maybe try for teammate Jimmy Nelson? OF-wise, buy low on Soler?
Joba

Berrios or Velazquez in dynasty?

I think you have talked about it on the pod, but Glasnow or Taillon?
Paul Sporer
4:10
Taillon for me

Can Villar steal 50 bases this year?
Paul Sporer
4:11
Possible, yeah, but I'd say more 35-40
Eric
4:11
What do you think about Villar? Can he be a top 5 SS ROS?
Paul Sporer
4:12
Meant to put both Villar things are once. That BABIP will come down and he's more a .270 hitter. But .270-8 HR-40 SB will push for top 5
Reginald Denton III

Rank Dozier, Forsythe, Odor ROS
