Time to give up and drop Prince Fielder in mixed leagues?
Paul Sporer
11:48
10 and 12 teamers, I can see it
BTW, please don't repeat your questions. The queue is loaded, it's gonna take a little bit

Good God, man! Where's Eno?
Paul Sporer
11:48
I fired him

Where is Joey Gallo? WHERE?
Paul Sporer

About 30 miles north of me in Round Rock, TX

Does Ryan Braun get moved this season?
Paul Sporer
11:49
Perhaps. I'd say 60/40 no, but it'd be cool for a huge trade

Paul - Thanks for filling in for Eno! I just traded Hamels and Hanley for Abreu in my 10-team H2H league with standard cats. Good move?
Paul Sporer
11:53
That's a little steep, tbh. Hanley hasn't been that far from Abreu this year and still carries strong upside. But it's not a team ruiner

James Paxton is this years ________
Paul Sporer
11:56
There's no perfect analog from last year. Could do some Carlos Carrasco 2014 stuff if he stays healthy
John Johnson
11:56
How do you feel about Carlos Correa? Struggling a little bit, but no reason he's not still a top 5 dynasty guy, right?
Paul Sporer
11:57
Exactly. I'm reluctant to even say it's a struggle. He's a hot run away from removing any of those kinds of questions
and yes, still a top dynasty guy
Jack

Start Paxton today at TB?
Paul Sporer
11:57
Yeah

SPOOOOOOOOONER!

You're not Eno....

What's wrong with Bryce Harper? Hasn't been hitting since the start of may.
Paul Sporer
11:58
Joe Maddon broke him! Honestly, I think that played a role. The new way to approach him has left him pressing on the few opportunities he gets each game. He'll be fine, though

Addison Russell or Alex Bregman long term?
Paul Sporer
11:58
Russell

Do you expect the Astros to make some moves over the next month, even if it's just in terms of call ups? I can't figure out if we're actually going to see Bregman or Reed any time soon.
Paul Sporer
11:59
Ya I expect them to be active. They're not going anywhere. I think those 2 will be up within a month, but that's a pure guess (as it always is with prospects)... speaking of, Willson Contreras called up
The Kid

Todd Frazier - BB% way up from career rates and BABIP seems to be quite a bit lower than career rates, OBP is still pretty normal. What do you see going forward?
Paul Sporer
12:00
BABIP is low bc 40% of hits are HRs. I expect big power, modest-to-bad AVG, and some sneaky SBs.
A. Reitz
12:00
Any chance Frances Martes is in the Astros rotation out of Spring 16?
Paul Sporer
12:01
I imagine you mean '17. There's a chance, but I wouldn't bet on it
Patty

I can't get enough of Michael Fulmer. Just say a few words about him for me, please.
Paul Sporer
12:02
He's really impressive. I think it was peeking through even in his early starts when the results weren't great. He'd have runs of 8-10 batters where he looked amazing, but then would run into some trouble. Just standard rookie stuff. Really clicked v. TB with the emergence of his change
Tim
12:02
Haven't seen any of JUp's recent games but the production has been much better of late. Assuming you've seen some recent Tiger games, is he looking better?
Paul Sporer
12:05
Yeah definitely looks better. The thing is, even early he'd have a great AB or two and then nine shitty ones. He's still having shitty ones, but it's more like 3-4 good, 2-3 shitty. Only 23% K this month, so a big improvement
James
12:05
Would you trade Kluber and Revere for Starling Marte and Jon Gray? 6x6 H2H with OPS and K/9
Paul Sporer
12:05
Man, it's tough to trade for a Rockies arm. And i think Revere is heating up. I'd pass
The Man With The Plan
12:05
Where is Profar playing August 1st....2B, SS, 3B, AAA, not in Texas.
Paul Sporer
12:06
Not really sure on position, tbh, but I will say not in Texas. I think he's raised his trade value enough to get moved for a big piece
