What is the prognostication for Devon Travis r.o.s?
Paul Sporer
2:27
OK, this will be the last Travis question. He's the player of the day it seems. He's largely overrated in the market. Shoulder injuries have me questioning what the power will be like anyway. The lineup isn't that good right now so it's not automatically gonna float him. He's a fine mid-tier 2B option, but I think a lot of folks who held him are expecting BIG things and I don't see that
Rich

Start Estrada (vNYY, @BOS) or is that BOS start gonna kill my ratios!
Paul Sporer
2:29
Really trying to avoid BOS... espec AT BOS, but Estrada has been really good again
So I think I'd go for it

Do you see any reason for concern on Carlos Martinez other than his bad results?
Paul Sporer
2:31
No, not necessarily. Always worry about health bc he's had some issues, but nothing jumps out. Prob a solid buy-lower... i don't think the discount will be THAT steep, but it'll be cheaper than opening day
Bart

Need pitching, is a Harper for Mazara and Jose Fernandez a fair deal?
Paul Sporer
2:32
Yeah, I think that's fair. I hate to deal Harper, but you gotta improve that SP
Brian
2:32
If Glasnow and Taillon are available which one would you stash.
Paul Sporer
2:32
Tai
Snowflake
2:32
Where would you rank Piscotty among OFs?
Paul Sporer
2:34
Not sure off the top of my head, but I love that guy. I wanna say top 25 without fully doing my ranking
Timo P
2:34
Hi, Paul. 5x5 plus obp & tb. Please rank Martin, Grandal, D'Arnaud (when he's back).
Paul Sporer
2:35
I think you just did. I wanna say we ranked these very Cs recently and that was my ranking
Gest
2:35
What if I want to trade Darvish now when he's at his most intriguing, but I also have him at $1 in a keeper? How good of a value do you expect him to be in 2017 (pts league)
Paul Sporer
2:36
I mean he could obv be a great value next year, but it's not guaranteed. Look at Harvey in year 2 after TJ. I agree with selling now for a pretty good haul, espec. w/that keeper value
Bravo
2:36
NL-only league, would you trade Bailey for Colin Rea?
Paul Sporer
2:36
Meh, I'd just take my shot on Bailey even though I don't love TJ guys in year 1
Ombudsman
2:36
Matt Kemp seems like he's hit a wall lately. Worth it to drop him for any of Michael Saunders, Yasmany Tomas, Jorge Soler, or Josh Reddick
Paul Sporer
2:36
How many teams?
Y'all gotta put your league size. That means SO much with these questions.
Dave
2:37
ROS- Ozuna or Conforto?
Paul Sporer
2:37
Ooooh you got me locked up on that one. Two guys I really like!! I'll lean Ozuna bc of the pop
Oliver
2:37
Is there ANY hope of Keuchel doing anything ROS? or should have been dropped weeks ago
Paul Sporer
2:37
There's SOME hope, but I'm not terribly hopeful
Reggie
2:37
Pts league, JUp for Harvey. Who says no?!
Paul Sporer
2:38
I think both prob do it.
Bart
2:38
Need pitching, drop Severino and Nicasio and add Ryu and Fulmer?
Paul Sporer
2:38
Ya that works (keep an eye on Sevvy returning, though), but I really like gambling on Ryu
Keeping it real
2:38
Rank these NL-only keepers: Franco, Russell, Soler, Mallex, Baez, Duvall
Paul Sporer
2:40
Baez over Mallex, otherwise it's set. Franco/Russell v close

In a 12-team mixed with 6 pitching categories -- QS, SV, Ks, ERA, WHIP, K/BB -- should I ditch Fiers or Ian Kennedy to stash DeScalafani or Ryu for when they return from injury?
Paul Sporer
2:42
you could dump Fiers for Ryu
CW

Was offered harvey/cargo/C. Seager/madson for my manny/polanco/gausman/ramos. No way i'm doing that in a 10 tm keeper...but countered with harvey/seager for manny/gaus/ramos. Thoughts? Keep forever league
Paul Sporer
2:42
Keep Manny. Seager is a beast, but Manny is better
Rich
2:42
please rank: VV, Eickhoff, McCullers
Paul Sporer
2:42
VV, Mc, Eick
OddBall Herrera
2:43
"He's not top 72 next yr anyway" prepare to be flamed by outraged prospect lovers
Paul Sporer
2:43
Haha
