Best track on the recent Action Bronson album was the one with the Chance guest spot, but Bronson holds his own in earlier mixtapes, in case you're unfamiliar. Lots of sports refs too, like Larry Csonka.
Paul Sporer

Which mixtape should I listen to first from him?
Yancy From Fort Myers

Did you see me lose your Sporer Draft Kings league by .05 points last night? Brutal. Keep making the leagues and I'll play them!
Paul Sporer
2:32
OMG that's brutal. I didn't see it bc i was toast early and didn't check much
JP
2:33
Which side: Kluber/Kipnis/Casilla for Villar/Pedroia and a draft pick?
Paul Sporer
2:33
Probably side A, but needs can easily make it a really good deal for B. It's fair even with neutral needs
The Cincinnati Kid
2:33
Billy Hamilton (Rd 19) & Beltre for Blackmon. Should I get a pick back for Hamilton? (Josh Hamilton will sooner by playing in my fantasy league than in MLB...) :)
Paul Sporer
2:34
Oh it's Billy. I mean, I'm just so out on B Ham, but ya you can ask for the pick
John
2:34
Drew Smyly for Evan Longoria which side wins in an AL only Roto?
Paul Sporer
2:34
Longo slightly, but super-fair

What kind of SP should I target for Story?
Paul Sporer
2:34
A good one
2:35
Y'all, I don't mean to glib, but I really can't identify what you should be targeting for a particular player. Each market is vastly different and you're going to know your league best. I used to try to identify names and then I'd always get "well the guys in my league would never do him, him, or him"... so it's really hard to get specific
But you should pull a real arm for Story. He's a high quality fantasy SS
Clint
2:35
Trea Turner, I'm starting to worry that even if he's called up, Dusty will lean on the vets, thoughts?
Paul Sporer
2:35
Yeah that's Dusty's MO even more than the using SPs too long thing
JMac
2:35
Velasquez or Nola. Who has the best career?
Paul Sporer
2:36
I'll say Nola despite my VV love
Gavin
2:36
Trade Sam Dyson and V Velasquez for Harvey in a 12-teamer?
Paul Sporer
2:36
I can do that
Josh
2:36
12-tm keeper league: trade away $1 Matz (goes to $11 next year), $2 Wainwright and $1 Colome for $22 Arrieta and (non-keepable) Lackey?
Paul Sporer
2:36
Sounds like you're pushing in the chips, so yes, let's roll
Tom Brady
2:37
We in for a 4 hour chat today?!
Paul Sporer
2:37
Nah, not quite a marathon sesh today

Meaning, will Trumbo regress, or is his torrid start sustainable? If he will regress, do you think it is worth selling him high now?
Paul Sporer
2:38
Ya, I just think this is normal Trumbo. He'll pop 30+ but it'll die down in the summer, IMO
Airwolf
2:38
Can Ian Desmond keep this up or will the regression fairies come for him?
Paul Sporer
2:39
Looks to be in line with 2012-14. I love Ian Desmond. 3x 20-20 guy and still went 19-13 last year in a bad season
I did it all for the Mookie
2:40
Traded Bradley jr/Price to the resident Sox fan in my pool for Mookie and Cano about a week ago. Debating offering him back Mookie for Bryant and Salazar - good idea?
Paul Sporer
2:40
Yeah, definitely. How'd the Red Sox lover give up Mookie? Even if it was for 2 Red Sox!
Karl Farbman

Hey Paul, love the podcast(s), in a 10 team mixed H2H points 4 OF league with a Util spot I have Betts, Cain, and McCutchen - who should I drop? Mazara, Odubel, or Heyward?
Paul Sporer
2:41
Damn, that's tough. Even though he literally just hit a homer, I think it's Heyward
Batman

Just want to say Fulmer angers me. Stashed him early. Waited 4 starts ,and he couldn't make it out of the 5th inning, drop him . Then BAM!! Starts going off and was too low on WW to get him back. :( How many starts is reasonable to wait out these "prospects"??
Paul Sporer
2:42
I'm actually studying that exact thing rn. I think we might have to allow a grace period with these guys. The overwhelming majority will not be dominant right away but 3-4 bad ones to start doesn't mean they're 100% not ready, either. Manaea looked not-ready early on, but then really got it together and looks SO much sharper now
Fulmer actually *looked* better than his numbers early on, but I still worried he could get sent back out. Thankfully he didn't.

Eno's crazy for having Samardzija 40th in his latest ranks, right? Behind Eovaldi and Zimmerman? Huh?
Paul Sporer
2:45
I have him higher
Mike

Danny Valencia or Jake Lamb as Miguel Sano fill-in? Love Lamb killing RHP and Valencia LHP, obviously more RHP but Valencia is better against same-handedness than Lamb.
Paul Sporer
2:45
Ya, Valencia has greatly improved v. righties somehow so I'd lean him
