Paul, lovin' the podcast. Makes taking my dog out in 90 degree weather much more pleasurable. Thanks!
Paul Sporer
12:55
You're welcome! Podcasts & dog walk is one of my favorite things to do almost every summer evening

Kemp, ~half of Kemp's remaining $, and Drew Pomeranz for Dylan Bundy, Pedro Alvarez and Ubaldo Jimenez's contract. Who says no?
Paul Sporer
12:56
Probably SD

Does Sonny Gray finish this season with the Athletics?
Paul Sporer
12:56
Yes
Zorak
12:56
Gattis or Martin ROS?
Paul Sporer
12:57
Gattis, even w/more Martin coming on
Ardy

Assuming Walker is healthy for Sunday, do you start him in Boston?!?!
Paul Sporer
12:57
No
Nas

Khris Davis is healthy and raking again. Back to being a 10-team bat?
Paul Sporer
12:57
Ya even if he's not being started, that pop has to be on a tm

Is Gausman more than just a streamer in 12 team leagues considering his division?
Paul Sporer
12:59
Not right now. I'm a Gausman fan, but it's just not happening on a level commensurate w/the raw stuff. Maybe I'm giving him a pass, but I can't get beyond Baltimore's inability to develop SPs

time to give up on eovaldi and gausman? both are killing him for the past month.
Paul Sporer
1:00
Depends on lg size, but yeah
steve

Out of Eickoff, Davies & Bauer who do you like going forward? Any worth owning outright in 10-teamers or are all streamers?
Paul Sporer
1:00
All streamers. I'd lean Eickhoff

Heard Aaron Sanchez is going to the pen. So that means its probably unwise to trade for him in a redraft, right?
Paul Sporer
1:01
Yeah that'd be bad. That piece of news definitely blasted his trade value. I still think it's at least a month from happening, but I get it
Joe Beef

Follow up on the Bregman question. How would Verlander be as a return?
Paul Sporer
1:01
Hot
Lakos
1:01
Concerned about Kluber? I thought he was ok then yesterday happened :(
Paul Sporer
1:02
He's just so hot-cold. It's bc he's the ace of Eno's bad fastball rotation and of course fastball is the most important pitch so when it's off, his secondary stuff can't save him
Greg

Hey Paul, can only keep 2, M. Frank, J. Lamb, J. Heyward. 1 would be at 3B, the other my utility spot. Normal stats, but also includes Ks. Who should I drop?
Paul Sporer
1:02
Think it'd be Heyward
Matt

what do the nats do about the closer situation? can they get miller and force pap to the 8th?
Paul Sporer
1:03
yeah i think they make a move. Kelley for now, but they're eyeing NYY for a better closer
Matt
1:03
What about some under-the-radar RP who should be closers... Oh in STL?
Paul Sporer
1:03
Oh for sure. Harris/Kelley were my go to answers on this until about a week ago. More here: http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/category/bullpen-report/
Matt

Are we still underrating Danny Valencia? 22% HR/FB rate the past two seasons, stinging everything he hits.
Paul Sporer
1:04
I probably am. I'm just suspect of a 30-something all of a sudden learning to hit righties, but I'm coming around. All-formats play for sure, but I'm keeping a close eye.
And sadly, I can't rule out a Collabelloian situation
Gorky

Maikel Franco suitable as my starting 3B in a 10-teamer or should I be seeking an uprade?
Paul Sporer
1:05
It's good enough, IMO. He hasn't been great, but his struggles are generally overstated. Still pacing toward 30/85. I'd buy on Franco rn

ROS prediction on Jung Ho Kang
Paul Sporer
1:06
More studliness! He rules
Ritt Momney

When is Glasnow up?
Paul Sporer

Couple weeks maybe? I really don't know
