Yep, Pollock is who I come out on thinking you have to drop. It's tough to do, but you gotta stay focused on '16 as long as you're competing

How much are you buying Fulmer? Is a keepable Fulmer and Dae-Ho Lee worth a non-keepable Hosmer if I'm not in contention this year? Thanks
Paul Sporer
3:05
Hmm, that's not awful. Fulmer is a legit prospect so even if he comes back down this year and doesn't dominate the rest of the way, there is still tons of upside. Not sure the upside of Lee at 34 y/o. Can you get a younger bat?

in a 30 team dynasty league, with arbitration that mirrors mlb. Would you trade SS/CF Chris Owings for Sp Reynaldo Lopez and OF Michael Gettys? Owings has three more years of control after this one. Gettys and Lopez I'd have their first 6 mlb years. My team's not competing this year, just struggling with is this enough for a good cost controlled hitter who will be eligible at ss and cf next year.
Paul Sporer

Hot damn this is a deep league. Very cool. I honestly think I'd stick with Owings for the reasons you outline.

Zach Davies - a little eye-opening last few starts. What do you think? Also, prefer Will Harris or Jeffress going forward?
Paul Sporer
3:09
Ya, impressive stuff last two times out. I think it'll continue to be an up and down season as it's been to date. Somewhere in that 3.90-4.30 ERA range is where he'll land. I just saw the note about Harris on Rotoworld where AJ Hinch legitimately said get him in fantasy and see what happens so I'm changing my tune a bit from that earlier question where I recommended some others over him. I'll go Harris here and in Zorak's Q from earlier.

Got two trading offers:JoFer for villar+Matz /Jofer for Scherzer.
Paul Sporer

Prefer Fern in both cases

Yo what up w/this?
Paul Sporer
3:10
Yes, what is up with you creepily pulling pics off my facebook?? That is a tremendous question.

Do I give up on Coghlan finallly in AL-Only?
Paul Sporer
3:10
Ya I'm OK with it. I was excited about his season, but it hasn't panned out. Cutting him in leagues myself recently
Larry Bigbie

Parmalee or Refsynder in AL-Only?
Paul Sporer
3:11
Ref
Chris

What are your thoughts on Whit Merrifield? Is he going to be a decent option at 2B?
Paul Sporer
3:11
Speed only and prob not enough to overcome rest of it
Tommy

You buying in on either the Danny Duffy or James Paxton resurgences?
Paul Sporer
3:12
Ah, it seems Duffy and Paxton are our Chat Players of the Week! Every week we have 1-2 guys who get a million q's asked about them. I think this was in before I answered the flood on them, so I'm not blasting you or anything, just saying I think we're all set on q's for these two. Duffy has been solid and the pedigree is enough to buy back in. Paxton has made discernible changes that Eno highlighted on yesterday's pod so I'm taking another shot on him, too.
Jim

Hunter Strickland or Corey Gearrin?
Paul Sporer

Strick

Is it worth holding onto Travis in 12 team leagues? I know he was a bit over his head last year, so I'm curious what his actual fantasy level will likely settle at. Thanks
Paul Sporer
3:13
You don't have to. I can easily cut him in that format
Eldridge Cleaver
3:13
Trade away Darvish for Lucroy? I have excess pitching.
Paul Sporer
3:13
Sure, that works
spookie

trying to pry an elite arm. Is Sale/J.Harrison good enough for Xander? Keep forever, already have Correa.
Paul Sporer
3:13
Ya, that's worthwhile for the premium arm you seek

Whit Merrifield - is he this good? will he retain a starting job ROS?
Paul Sporer
3:13
Just running hot.
Andy
3:14
Not contending in 10 team h2h keeper (keep 12 forever). Have Lackey. What SP can i realistically aim for?
Paul Sporer
3:14
See if you can get Aaron Sanchez, even if you have to add a veteran batter
ManaeacOnTheFloor
3:14
How do you view Sean Manaea ROS?
Paul Sporer
3:15
It's gonna be inconsistent. I think he'll shave that season ERA down into the 4.00s, but still gonna have his struggles. Not quite as ready as I thought
Zorak
3:15
Is there any hope for Stroman or did I waste one of my six keepers on him?
Paul Sporer
3:16
I mean, he just doesn't K enough guys to be a fantasy frontliner. The GB% is a weapon, but it can have a downside in the form of hits which we're seeing this yr. He's good, not great. We overhyped him this year in fantasy circles across the net. He was almost universally regarded in that second tier which is too high
CameronDaClub
3:16
Pick one: Fresh Prince, Gregerson, Kintzler, Strickland.
Paul Sporer

Strick

I love Stroman IRL, but his division sucks. Should I look to move him in my dynasty?
Paul Sporer
3:16
See above!
