Yes I still have hope, it's only 9 starts. I thought he was more ready, but MLB is REALLY hard.

What are your thoughts on Profar for the rest of the season?
Paul Sporer
12:42
It's all about health. But if he's playing, I think he remains productive and an all-formats viable play

In 2017, Carlos Correa is a ____ round pick in a 12 team keeper league.
Paul Sporer
12:42
2nd
Bron

I am projected to finish about 800ish points behind in a winner takes all ottoneu points league but am also reasonably secure in 2nd place. How would you approach such a situation?
Paul Sporer
12:43
Ooh that's tough. I'd personally be looking for ways to bridge that gap and give myself a shot. Is it just a superpower tm or a bunch the hottest starts on their tm?
Pitcher wins is stoopid
12:43
I've had this idea about pitcher usage and wonder what you might think of it. What if teams used their "setup men" to setup the "starter" in innings one and two. Three different looks for your opponent to deal with by inning 3 and your "Starter" isn't in his third trip through the order until the 7th or 8th and in gerneral pitch counts might end up being lower for the season with a 7 inning maximum outing for starters. "Closer" could come in in a high leverage situations in 8 and 9 just like they do now. What do you think? Any team have a good enough bullpen to try this?

Aw sweet, Brian Kenny is in our chat!
12:45
And I don't say that disparagingly. He definitely beats this drum and it's not an entirely unique idea. It'd take a lot to get a team on board. It's probably one of those that's better in theory than practice. Even the most logical gameplan won't necessarily hold up in practice bc we're still dealing with human beings and not just stat generating machines

Adam Eaton's production is just so...boring. Still hanging on in 10-team mixed?
Paul Sporer
12:45
I hear ya, but unless there's an option on the wire you just have to have, I'd hold
Chris R.
12:45
Piggybacking on Stanton, in a Roto OBP, would you trade Jay Bruce, Valencia or JUpton for him straight up?
Paul Sporer
12:46
Valencia for sure and probably even Bruce. I think the track record is worth buying low. This is like a legit buy-low so it has to be ugly to get the discount. But no one is going to be surprised if he has a 15 HR August or some shit
Nick
12:46
What do you think the rangers will do at/before trade deadline?
Paul Sporer
12:46
Hard to say exactly, but they will be active and prominently so, IMO
ryN
12:47
At this point who has been the winner of last yea's Rox/Jays trade?
Paul Sporer
12:47
Toronto
jon
12:47
why did you take enos spot jerk! Lol Jk. HI
Paul Sporer
12:48
He said if he had to interact with "jon" even one more time, it'd be enough to make him go crazy. I get it now.

AL- Only Keeper: If Tanaka is my best pitcher and I've got guys like Happ, Miley, and now Shields rounding out my rotation, I should just pack it in and make some deals for next year, right? I've got good bullpen pieces but every start is like 5IP 5ER and killing everything.
Paul Sporer
12:49
Really depends what kinda movement you have possible in the standings. if you can still get the points to contend, then stay in it. but if you're buried, move on
The Kid
12:49
Grandal - hurt, suffering from inconsistent ABs (even for or a catcher), or JUST a slump? What's up with dude?
Paul Sporer
12:49
Always hurt and really impacts him. I really like his skillset at 100%, but he's never at 100%. Kinda understand why he did PEDs. Not saying he shouldn't have been punished when caught, but I get it
Davis
12:50
All this talk about the nats trading for chapman (or Miller) - granted those guys are great - but why not just bring up Lopez and Giolito to pitch out of the pen for the last month and hopefully the playoffs? Save the talent if the Yankees ask for a boatload.
Paul Sporer
12:50
I mean, this isn't Playstation. You can't just throw one of them in the pen and expect them to deliver high-leverage innings. Yes you gotta pay for one of those NYY RPs, but you also get something much better than what those rooks would do out of the pen.
Jimmy Sak
12:50
Am I getting off the Kluber train?
Paul Sporer
12:51
I don't know, are you? I understand if you downgrade him to more of a really good as opposed to ace. But I have a hard time flat moving on
Shawn
12:51
Ignoring position, who would rather have ROS - K. Davis, Jake Lamb, or M. Holliday?
Paul Sporer
12:51
Lamb
Seabass
12:51
Paul, you gonna come to NYC and drinks beers with a couple of cool guys?
Paul Sporer
12:51
Comin to NYC, but I don't drink these days
Zorak
12:52
Rolling with Jeffress, Dyson and Cishek but Harris is looking mighty fine on the waiver wire. Don't really have room for a fourth reliever, can I just drop Cishek for Harris?
Paul Sporer
12:52
Ya, that'd be OK. I really like Harris
Duke
12:52
I want your opinion on a possible Mil-LAD trade. LAD get R.Braun + 25 mil and W.Smith while Mil gets R.Stripling, C. Anderson and K. Hernandez. Does this make sense for both teams?
Paul Sporer
12:54
That seems to check out. Nice for both
Gary Bertier
12:54
Taillon took down the Mets (twice really)...do you dare start him against the Cubs?
Paul Sporer
12:55
I think I'd sit him. Tough to start any non-aces v. CHC or BOS
The Kid
12:55
Gregory Polanco - stud. Are we gonna see some of those doubles turn into homers soon? Maybe as early as this year?
Paul Sporer
12:55
We already are, he's matched his HR from last yr already
