Dickerson turn things around in TB? Seems to be hitting better of late.
Paul Sporer
2:19
Let's hope. He's had a few spurts, but nothing consistent.

Hey Paul! I need steals in a Roto OBP. Who do I drop Duvall for? Buxton, Burns, Rajai or Gardner?
Paul Sporer
2:20
Can you not flip Duvall? That's some big pop. Although with all of those guys available, it seems like a shallower lg. I'd go big w/Buxton

Please don't repeat your questions. The queue fills fast so I'm going as quickly as I can

When should we expect to see Tony Zych return? Is he worth holding on to right now in an AL-only? I'm in contention so every roster spot is vital.
Paul Sporer
2:21
Big fan, but I think you can find comparable or better even in AL
Zorak

Need a Sano replacement: Nab Valencia and his power or stick with my multi-pos backup Harrison and nab Bregman?
Paul Sporer
2:21
I've been wrong on Valencia, so go ahead and ride the wave.

Hi Paul. Thanks for chatting. You've seemed a little higher on post-Searage Happ than Eno. Would you do Tulo/Trumbo/Archer for Happ/Correa/Brantley in AL Only? Thanks bundles!
Paul Sporer
2:22
Yeah I'd do that. I think Trumbo is doing his normal fast start and I'm legit concerned about Archer and just think it's going to be a meh year (assuming health isn't the reason behind this)

Talk to me about Matt Shoemaker. Increased splitter usage was really working against your Tigers last night (lots of swinging strikes, and lots of weak contact). Even though he gave up 10 hits, he passed the eye test. For a guy that's probably available in most leagues, are you buying him as worthy of a spot in those leagues?
Paul Sporer
And i think he got some mention yesterday, too, though not a specific portion: http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/the-sleeper-and-the-bust-episode-350-enos-updated-sp-ranks/
He's gotta keep the ball down. He's absolutely dead when he's middle & up

Your thoughts on Gerrit Cole? Better days ahead?
Paul Sporer
2:24
ya, he's been dodging some raindrops to get that ERA and it will go up if he maintains this WHIP, but I expect the WHIP to improve with some of his talent and make the ERA more "real"

Who do you like better with respect to counting stats: M. Fulmer or M. Shoemaker? H2H, Redraft. Sadly, wins are the goal here.
Paul Sporer

Fulmer

Before the season I had traded Frazier and Polanco for Donaldson. Now i am strongly regretting that. My OF currently is Springer, Heyward, Valencia, Maybin, Grichuk. (14 team, OBP, 3 OF spots.) While Donaldson hasnt been bad, Frazier and Polanco have been awesome
Paul Sporer
2:26
Yeah, it's def not your favorite deal at this point. I really like Frazier and pegged Polanco for a breakout this year so I hope I didn't encourage you to do that deal as it doesn't seem like one I'd OK even though Donaldson is the best player in the deal

Lester/Justin Turner or Kluber/Matt Carpenter....which side you want ROS?
Paul Sporer
2:26
Gimme side A barely
Urias Tract
2:26
Did you see Urias K Russell on that change? Beautiful.
Paul Sporer
2:26
He's gonna be dope af

Sporer, you da man! In a shallow 10 team points league: his Correa, C Davis, Maeda for my Segura, Belt, Keuchel, Chapman is a take, no?
Paul Sporer
2:27
Scoop that noise! You want star power in 10-teamer. Correa/Davis are stars. Chappy the only bona fide start his position that you're relinquishing

I know you can't plug outside stuff of yours on here like twitch (FOLLOW PAULIE ON TWITCH @ twitch.tv/psporer24), so I won't ask you to talk about your twitch streams of MLB The Show which I absolutely love as a TV replacement. So... had any good burgers recerntly?
Paul Sporer
2:28
LOL, I can plug my other stuff. FG is very chill. Plus it's not really a conflict. I stream at night and often discuss the greatness of Fangraphs, whether it's my work or our robust stats pages! But yeah, if you want to hang out and discuss baseball several nights a week, check it out.
2:29
Most dismiss it out of hand as "I'm not watching someone play video games!!", but it's really not that much different than this except you can see my dumb face and lots of Charlotte!

I thought you said you and Jason would be podcasting on Sunday. I was there waiting for you. I'm not sure this long distance relationship is going to work out. Are you cheating on me with another podcast?
Paul Sporer
2:29
LOL. I tried to leave it open in case we didn't post. I was admittedly the one who didn't wanna go.
JB

Should I deal Trumbo? Who do you think I could target for him?
Paul Sporer
2:29
Yes. Whatever you need. You can ask for something signfiicant.

Now that Mackinin has said Tommy Joseph will get a few starts in a row, is he worth a pickup where he has C eligibility? I mean, he can't be any worse than Ryan Howard, and it's not like trotting Howard out there 4 days a week is going to make any contender want to trade a prospect for that dumpster fire...
Paul Sporer
2:31
NL-only for sure. Maybe deep mixers just bc C has been so brutal
