Paul, indecision is killing me in a deep redraft. Should I spec on Abad for saves (only have McGee/Paplebon) or give Paxton a go for some W/Ks?
Paul Sporer
2:15
Paxton has a higher upside
Paul

I jettisoned Heyward because I hate him and no one would bite on a trade offer. I will regret this?
Paul Sporer
2:15
Depends on league size, but even as a longtime Heyward fan, the upside isn't all that substantial

Eno says Travis Shaw is droppable/streamable at home in 10 team leagues. What says you?
Paul Sporer
2:16
Ya that's fine.
N.W.enO

Arenado/Odor/Span or Trout/Rendon/Forsythe with Hill at 2B till For comes back?
Paul Sporer
2:16
Trout side for me. Fair deal, though
Not Action Bronson
2:16
Do me a favor and get into Action Bronson. His stuff is amazing. Used to be a chef for the mets and got fired for throwing another chef over a table for getting in his way. Suggested albums: Dr Lecter, Blue Chips and Mr. Wonderful. His show Fuck that's Delicious is great too.

Word, I've listened to him a bit recently
Rich Hill to DL :(

Whaddya think about dropping Matt Moore for Danny Duffy? 13tm IP, QS, SV, ERA, WHIP, K/9. 5 SP slots 4 RP slots. Dude's getting a lot of love! I am très jealous.
Paul Sporer

Ya I'm in

Is James Paxton breaking out? And is his history of breaking himself the only thing holding back his ascent?
Paul Sporer
2:17
Could be. Check yesterday's pod, we discussed him. Eno is luring me back in. I've fallen for Paxton many a time and I'm diving in once more
Mischa

Hey Paul! Glad to hear you're no longer dropping Nick Punto games in softball! ROS 12-team points league: Heyward, Nunez or Profar?
Paul Sporer
2:18
Finally hitting the ball. Honestly, if I just sit back, I can actually hit pretty well. It's softball ffs so of course. But my biggest issue is swinging too damn early. Ride that Nunez hot streak
Oliver
2:18
Drop one or two of Jose Ramirez/Panik/Dozier for Paxton and/or JUpton?
Paul Sporer
2:20
Similar trio of 2B so I'd drop one for J Up. The decision is tough. Probably Ramirez. But league context matters for sure

Kyle Hendricks sneaky top 25 ROS? Elite soft contact, IFFB's , Called strikes, hes like the righty Jon Lester so far.
Paul Sporer
2:20
That feels aggressive, but I'm coming around him
2:21
around on him*
I just wish there was more swing-and-miss
Josh

Is Revere just not going to run this year in front of Harper? Best SS/Util combo for power and speed: Semien/Revere, Semien/Burns or K Marte/Reddick (once healthy)?
Paul Sporer
2:25
I still think he'll get going. I don't think it's Harper or anything, I'd still go Semien/Revere
Oliver
2:25
Whats the deal with HanRams power? Will it ever come back and what should we do with him?
Paul Sporer
2:26
Have to wonder if the shoulder is a lingering issue. the batted ball profile isn't conducive to power and matches what we saw last year when running into the wall tanked his season

Strong in pitching and weak in hitting in an AL roto redraft - Trade Walker and Carlos Santana - get Melky Cabrera and Longoria.
Paul Sporer
2:27
That's not bad. But why not just Walker for Longo and you keep Santana?

Please tailor your selected questions toward 10-team mixers, which apply to the vast majority of us. Many of these queries dive too deep!
Paul Sporer
2:27
No.
Dan

I have Mccann andGattis in a 10 team roto. Is there any reasn to keep both? Who should I roster
Paul Sporer
2:28
Not unless it's a 2-C league. Flip a coin for the pick, tbh. Little difference between em
Gucci
2:28
Was all aboard the Desclafani express at the start of year but tough to tell now. You on board or wait and see if velo is there?
Paul Sporer
2:28
Eno more on board than I am. I see where Eno is coming from, but I've personally moved on
James from Liverpool
2:28
Much has been made of Shoemaker riding his sinker to success, but can he sustain this? Was offered his Shoemaker for my AJ Reed in a keeper (though Reed would have to really rake for me to keep him). Thoughts?
Paul Sporer
2:29
If you need the pitching, I'm OK taking the chance. We saw him run hot for quite a while in '14 thanks to the sinker and splitter. When he commands, he's pretty damn sharp. I was suspect this year and I'm still a little leery, but I'm coming around after watching his last two start to finish
Ricky

Would you recommend holding Smyly, or stashing a guy like Snell or Glasnow?
Paul Sporer
2:29
How many tms? I could stash Snell. Smyly just such a major injury concern. So frusrtating
frustrating even
