Start Duffy vs the Tigers today?

Yeah. These skills are unreal

Paul! This may seem ludacris but hear me out. I'm in a league with 5 keeper spots from year to year and have 6 clear cut keepers (betts, cano, machado, sale, Thor, Degrom). I also have a few black holes in my lineup and am sitting in 4th, just out of the money. Should I look at trading syndergaard for a haul of 2-3 upgrades around the roster? I get weekly offers for him and I think he would fetch the biggest return in my league. Thanks !
Paul Sporer
12:07
Yes. You're in 4th which means you're very much in the hunt. Shore up your team and get that title

Can you run that Stanton Sano comp again?
Paul Sporer
12:08
Which comp is that? Is that something Eno did?

with all the hubbub of Ichiro lately, who's the better player, not just who's the hit King?
Paul Sporer
12:09
Oh Ichiro is better than Rose as a player. I kinda get Rose's saltiness in theory, but who is honestly saying Ichiro's the hit king now? People are acknowledging it bc it's a neat thing, but I don't see any ceremonies or anything. Ichiro is amazing, but he's not the hit king. Japanese league just isn't the same. It'd be akin to counting someone's Triple-A numbers.

14 team, OBP, 7 keepers: Traded my Fulmer for Mazara. Now I have an offer of my Colome for his Tanaka. SVHD league. Stream RP and get the starter? (Arrieta, Archer,Shoemaker, Mccullers,Gausman other SP)
Paul Sporer
12:10
Ya I'm much more willing to move closers in SVHD lgs

Eno posted retweeted an interesting piece about improved stuff from last season. Kendall Graveman made several appearances. How is he so terrible? Chance for improvement?
Paul Sporer
12:11
Pitching is REALLY hard! Stuff alone doesn't usually get it done long term. Doesn't throw enough good strikes. Doesn't miss enough bats. Elements are there, but needs more refining
Johnny Bench
12:11
Is Yan Gomes a significant upgrade at all to Chirinos at this point?
Paul Sporer
12:11
No, def not
Scott

Is it wrong to worry this Bryce Harper slump is more than a slump? If you remove first 19 games he's hitting .210 with 4hrs and 14 rbis in 44 games. That's a very small % of the season where he was actually good.
Paul Sporer
12:13
I get it. As I mentioned, I think the Maddon approach got him pressing. But we're about 65 gms in. I bet a lot of guys would look p lame if you removed their best 30%
Kerry
12:13
Trayce Thompson a 10-team bat for you?
Paul Sporer
12:13
Depends who else is available, but I'm more of a believer than most so I'm trying to keep him on my team in any format
Eric
12:14
You punting on Hunter Pence for the rest of this year? Long recovery time plus power sapping injury...
Paul Sporer
12:15
Yeah, that's fair. Super bummer bc one time ironman appears to be breaking down a bit w/a spate of injuries the last 2 yrs including the wrist HBP which obv wasn't his fault. Life comes at you fast in your 30s as a ballplayer

Nanoo nanoo, friend!

Anyone still use an iPod nano? I remember winning one for like 4th place of an online poker tourney and I was so psyched! I keep it as a trophy. It was a pretty huge tourney at Stars
Tony

Sim league where the playoffs are based on September stats... Swap Rich Hill for Duffy plus a small upgrade elsewhere?
Paul Sporer
12:16
Ya if you get Duffy+, go for it. Hill still 36 and already on the DL
Jamie Sayer
12:16
Shane Greene will / should get another chance to start, right? I mean how much longer can Matt Boyd hold him off?
Paul Sporer
12:17
Or Mike Pelfrey... (I know he's been non-awful results wise for about a month, but still). Anyway, I think Greene gets another shot. It's been more health than skill behind any struggles. Even last yr is a bit of a pass for me once we learned he couldn't feel his fingers. I'm still fully in on Greene, just waiting for the move back to SP
A. Reitz
12:17
Some of Martin Perez' peripheals are nice, but that K rate is terrible and he looks like a 2 pitch SP. My question...at what point do you start working on another pitch?
Paul Sporer
12:20
He confounds me. I'm a big fan, espec. when I watch him pitch, but holy shit is a 1.3 K:BB so f'n awful! He's actually got 2 breakers, but maybe he should just pick the slider or curve and focus on making it good. I still hold out hope for his skills to improve and backup a mid-3.00s ERA
Marcell Ozuna
12:20
Am I good?
Paul Sporer
12:21
Very

You trotting out Nola vs. TOR in ROTO tonight?
Paul Sporer
12:21
Think ya gotta. I get the risk, but Nola has performed from jump street and I have a hard time taking out of my lineup v. anyone right now
Tony
12:21
What's your order for best RoS ERA: Paxton, Duffy, Shoemaker?
Paul Sporer
12:22
They are the waiver SPs du jour, huh? I really struggle on an order for them. I think we did this same trio on the pod and I went Duffy, Shoe, Pax. Pax has just struggled so much with health.
Daniel
12:22
Do you think Wil Meyeres will go anywhere?
Paul Sporer
12:23
Well he's a really good player and SD hates those types, so yeah.
Seth
12:23
seems like many contenders are looking for a corner OF in this trade season...has Jay Bruce played his market up to getting a top 100 prospect in return?
