Snell or Sanchez ROS?
Paul Sporer
1:27
Sanchez's impending move to the pen makes it closer, but I lean him still

I'm intrigued by Oakland's recent callup Daniel Mengden. Could he be valuable ROS? Too early to tell?
Paul Sporer
1:28
Definitely too early, but we aren't afforded a lot of time these days. Eno gave him a nice endorsement on the pod. I'd take a gamble in some deeper formats
Seth

can i survive with a rotation of stras, harvey, teheran, chen, corbin, dickey, santiago/bolsinger in a 16 teamer? consider dealing stras for 2-3 next tier pitchers?
Paul Sporer
1:28
Don't trade, just work on upgrading that backend via the wire by churning some streamers
Kerry
1:29
I'm the guy that just traded Arenado for Kershaw and Braun. What do you think of me?
Paul Sporer
1:29
Woo!
OK
1:29
Thoughts on prospecting the Nats' pen? Dusty didn't sound that jazzed on the idea of making Kelley closer. Does Papelbon retake the job soon? When do they make a big trade?
Paul Sporer
1:29
I fully feel trade for them
Oliver
1:29
Willson Contreras getting the call. Thoughts on his playing time? Enough to be worth while in 1 C leagues?
Paul Sporer
1:29
Probably scant w/3 Cs. Probably not bothering in 1 C 10-12 tm'ers
Chris
1:30
Rank these two struggling outfielders in a dynasty league: Puig and Heyward
Paul Sporer
1:30
Ugh, two guys I've really liked in the past, but frustrated w/both. I'll still lean Puig. If the hammy gets right, still like his upside
Patrick
1:31
Is Brantley done for the year? Do we see Frazier and/or Zimmer this year?
Paul Sporer
1:31
i don't think he's done for the year, but one of them could get the call eventually bc their OF sucks.
John C.
1:32
Paul thoughts on Robbie Grossman? 14tm H2H would you prefer him or Granderson ROS? I've been holding Grandy bc of trackrecord and assumed higher floor.
Paul Sporer
1:33
Still Curtis, but Grossman has made some changes that Eno buys and gave him a nice endorsement
Bill
1:33
Conforto still worth holding in 10-team? Because yuck.
Paul Sporer
1:33
with injury being a contributing factor and PT cut v. lefties, I'd be open to a new OF in 10-teamer
JD
1:33
Which Cub is more likely to get traded: Kyle Schwarber or Willson Contreras?
Paul Sporer
1:33
This July? Contreras
CamdenWarehouse

Is David Wright's career over?
Paul Sporer
1:34
Might be :(
Davy
1:34
Do you think Giolito will play any role for the Nationals this season? They could certainly use a bullpen arm for the stretch run.
Paul Sporer
1:34
Not sure they wanna do that. I can still see a call-up if the rotation loses some guys. But he's not emerging as quickly as expected.
Jake from State Farm
1:35
Is it possible we see Tyler O'Neill this year? he is just murdering the ball in AA
Paul Sporer
1:35
I legitimately don't know that guy. My bandwidth gets sketch around AA and focuses more on pitchers

Is Fielder showing he still has some gas in the tank or is the last 10 days a mirage?
Paul Sporer
1:37
I think there could be a little in the tank. I've suggested he's gotta be hurt to be this bad, but maybe he's still getting bad sleep. He has sleep apnea. Napoli was diagnosed w/it last yr and I thought it'd be his fix and send him back upward. Well he didn't show anything until late last year bc he still struggled w/the apnea as he got used to the CPAP machine. Just bc Fielder is diagnosed doesn't mean he's cured. In short, I'm OK with those who've moved on, but I could see some improvements in the 2nd half if Fielder is in fact NOT hurt again w/the neck
D
1:37
Is James Shields no longer good at baseball?
Paul Sporer
1:38
He needs to make some adjustments, but I wouldn't go so far as to say he's done. It takes guys some time to transition when they start losing their stuff
Brad
1:38
Drew Smyly, burning garbage fire or buy low opportunity?
Paul Sporer
1:38
More the former just bc injury is usually behind any struggles
JD
1:38
How confident should I be in Smyly's start last night? He's been so volatile.
Paul Sporer
1:39
Last Smyly Q. The talent is obvious and robust, as his inability to stay healthy. Some of that is due to his mechanics which Doug Thorburn has long hated. I have a hard time fully trusting him in shallow lgs
Andy
1:39
12 tm 5x5 roto. Desperately need SB. Dee Gordon is available, but the catch is there is no bench. Eligible to come back July 28. When would you pick him up, knowing you take zeros while he is in the lineup. Thanks!
Paul Sporer
1:40
Earliest I could do that is ASB and that's still 2 weeks of 0s
Nickels

do you believe in the Wil Myers breakout?
