Hey y'all, we''ll get going here in a moment!

Would you assume Bregman's up by July 1?
Paul Sporer
2:03
I really don't know.

Aaron Sanchez graduate from streamer status in a shallow league now?
Paul Sporer
2:04
He's been great all year, tbh. I've been using him as a full timer throughout

Hey Paul! Keeper league, already own Xander (3 more years of control). I dealt Corey Seager (can keep for 4 years) and Nelson Cruz (can own through next season) for Andrew McCutchen (free agent after this year) and Julio Urias (can keep for 5 years). 12 team 5x5. How did I do?
Paul Sporer
2:05
I don't love it as I greatly prefer young hitters to young pitchers when all else is equal and honestly it might not even be equal given what we've seen from Seager. It's not a catastrophe, but I prefer the guys you dealt.

If Beltre hits the DL, does Gallo come up or Profar stay there?
Paul Sporer
2:06
Well Profar is already there with Beltre not on the DL, so Gallo could come up while Profar stays. Can Profar throw from third? I think that's the real question there.
Eric

Sell high on Villar? Or do you think he can be a top 5 SS RoS? What about the next 2 years?
Paul Sporer
2:06
If you can really sell high and get something(s) to help your team, do it. But I believe his speed which is a great driver of fantasy value.

I'm down to only two starters in my AL-only. Best arms available are Chacin, Santiago, Boyd and Nova. Anybody worth a pick up or should I stock up on a few awesome middle relievers until something better pops up or I make a deal?
Paul Sporer
2:07
Are you holding up in Ks and Ws? you don't wanna punt two categories so you might need to go the SP route, though these aren't GREAT choices. I'd lean Chacin of the bunch

12 team mixed: my expiring-contract jose fernandez and logan forsythe for his keepable profar and mazara? only if i'm punting? or worth it anyway?
Paul Sporer
2:07
if you're not contending, this definitely works.
Richie rich

Excited about Tyler Skaggs possibly returning at the end of the month? Anything to see here fantasy-wise?
Paul Sporer
2:08
I've been a Skaggs fan in the past, but he certainly hasn't done enough to trust before seeing so it's a full wait-and-see for me
2:09
BTW, friendly reminder to not repeat your questions. It takes a little while once the queue fills. Please be patient. And include league details, at least how many tms.

Ay Paulie, start Karns tn vs CLE?
Paul Sporer
2:09
League context REALLY matters here. I don't hate it, but I wouldn't stream him into this start
Minty
2:09
Would you trade Odor and put Profar at 2B? I really like Odor, but he's far from an OBP guy.
Paul Sporer
2:10
In real life? Not everyone needs to be an OBP guy on an MLB team. They can have different profiles. I can see them dealing some of this surplus, but I don't know that it'll be Odor
RUDY J

Would you trade any or all of these starters for Stanton at this point: Scherzer, Stroman, Hamels?
Paul Sporer
2:10
Stroman for sure

Ottoneu 5x5, 12 team dynasty. His $35 JHey for my $35 Justin Upton?
Paul Sporer
2:10
That's ok

Should I continue to roster A Diaz in a 12 team h2h league? I have walker, peralta, machado for my SS and MI spots.
Paul Sporer
2:11
Since May 1st, he's got a .711 OPS w/a 20 HR pace. Not totally worthless (espec. bc of the runs), but hardly special. if no one wants him via trade and you have someone on the wire you want, then make the move
RUDY J
2:12
(that's a 12 team mixed btw - sorry)
Paul Sporer
2:12
no prob. def Stroman
KTown

Chris Carter a 10-team bat for you? At Miller Park, I can legitimately see him leading the bigs in dingers.
Paul Sporer
2:13
At least while hot. But May had 8 HRs and .198 AVG. The cold streaks that are seemingly always around the corner definitely mitigate some of the HRs so hopefully you're stocked on AVG guys w/him
hEy
2:13
In a league where bats are worth about 40% more than starters, what type of return should I expect for Machado? Ace and a good bat?
Paul Sporer
2:13
Sure, that seems right if your trade market will yield such. Why trade him, though?

If Welington Castillo is my C in a 12 team league, should I be worried about upgrading?
Paul Sporer
2:14
Nah, he's fine IMO. Catcher SUUUUUCKS this year. Always be on the lookout to improve your team, but I wouldn't freak
Mikey
2:14
Wil Myers is a MAN! Cute hot streak or legit breakout?
Paul Sporer
2:14
It's never been the talent, only the health. He was a big breakout pick for me this year
Marc
2:15
Drop CCarter for Kintzler in 10-team?
Paul Sporer
2:15
Ehhh, if you don't need the pop. I'd rather have Will Harris as a saves spec.
