Yes, even as a rental

Better streaming option tomorrow in their head-to-head matchup: Zach Davies or Julio Urias?
Paul Sporer
12:24
I'm not really sure who they're facing, but I'll say Urias

KC really looks to need starting pitching. Do they go get one, trade for one, or stand pat. And, who is out there in their price range that may be worth it.
Paul Sporer
12:24
The SP trade market is pathetic. I think they go with what they've got and maybe try for some call-ups as opposed to trades.

If by some miracle Choo stays healthy, he's more or less a full-time starter, yes? And if so, what can we expect from him ROS?
Paul Sporer
12:25
Ya if healthy, he's playing. And if healthy, he's gonna be solid. Use last yr as a guide

What do my Mets do now that the Captain is out for most, if not all, of this season? Would it make sense to go after a guy like Solarte?
Paul Sporer
12:26
It would, that's an interesting name. I really like Solarte. Can't play v good defense, but a solid player for sure and good hitter. I think they'll be more in the Solarte arena as opposed to finding an Cespedes-level impact on the market

Omar Infante released by Royals. And, in related news, they signed Yunesky Betencourt !!
Paul Sporer
12:26
Wait, that's a gag, right?

I know Taijuan Walker has a great fastball, but if you watch a lot of his starts this year, that's pretty much all he's got. Is it unfair to say his lofty projections this year were a stretch without anything but average secondary stuff?
Paul Sporer
12:28
Ya I think that's a stretch. His splitter is lit and the curve is good. Expectations may've been too lofty (I was among those super-high on him), but he's still just 23. I still see a future star

trade puig and werth for yelich in my 13 team 5x5 obp roto? i'm fair to middling in steals runs and obp....i keep hoping for more with puig, but it's just not gonna' happen right?
Paul Sporer
12:29
I'm not ready to say it's not gonna happen, but I'm OK w/this deal even w/Werth heating up

Hey Paul. 15 team league, 40 player roster: 5 minors, 35 majors. 2 catcher. I have Gomes and Plawecki/Rivera (with d'Arnaud on the DL - where he spends most of his time ammiright?). The last place team has started shopping and is looking to rebuild and I want their Matt Wieters and Wainwright. I am looking to use any of D. Peralta, T. Shaw, P. Tucker, Gleyber Torres, A.J. Reed, and Sean Manaea as trade chips.
Paul Sporer
12:30
I'd try to keep Peralta & Manaea, but the others should have something enticing enough to the other owner to get a deal done. I like going for that Wiets/Waino combo

Are you buying Steve Pearce in 12 team mixed leagues? Once Reddick comes back, I need to drop Pearce or Saunders, but Pearce has been so good...
Paul Sporer
12:30
I am and I don't think I'd drop him. Saunders might make the decision for you w/his tweaked hammy.
Coach
12:30
You buying what Trevor Bauer has been able to do lately?
Paul Sporer
12:35
Cursory look doesn't show any real skills growth (I assume we're talking about the last 3-5 starts). Probably just a hot run.
Gordo
12:35
My offense has been great but my pitching has let me down. In a 13-team mixed league how confident should I be in recovering with a rotation of Sale, Quintana, Stroman, Odorizzi, Eickhoff, and Desclafani with relievers Betances, Ramos, and Dyson? I also have Wheeler, Boxberger, and Ottavino on the DL.
Paul Sporer
12:36
That's not a bad rotation, but it needs work. Any of the hot pickups still there: Paxton, Duffy, Shoemaker? I'd scoop any of them. If not, stay on top of the wire for the next run of viable pickups. Jon Gray maybe as a road streamer?
Melvin

Braun or J-Up for you ROS?
Paul Sporer
12:36

12 team keeper, keep in the round they were drafted. Is trying to sell Aaron Sanchez (22nd round) for Hosmer (12) or Piscotty (11) aiming too low? How about packaging Sanchez and Starling Marter (2). Trying to compete this year and worried about sanchez shifting to the bullpen
Paul Sporer
12:37
No, I'd be happy w/either bat for him. Really like Sanchez, but your concerns are merited re: IP limits

I miss Rich Hill. When's he coming back? Most likely destination if he gets traded?
Paul Sporer
12:37
A couple wks. I have no idea on trade destination just bc he's the only viable arm on the market unless they also deal Gray so everyone is in play
Shawn
12:38
Which arm do you like best out of Paxton, Duffy, Snell, Shoemaker?
Paul Sporer
12:39
You put this in before the spate of questions regarding these four, so I'll get to it. But we're closing the book on this group going forward. I'd go Duffy if I'm only picking one
