Yes, I was a big fan this year. One of my decent calls so far. But it's never really been skill. Health has always been the issue. We just passed his games played total from last year. Can he hold up?

I left two crayons in the car. they melted. It's hot in Barcelona!
Paul Sporer

Why'd you have crayons in your car? It's hot everywhere right now!

Does last night's game signal better things ahead for Hanley Ramirez? His BB/K numbers have been trending up while his overall numbers have been trending down.
Paul Sporer
1:42
One game isn't enough to signal seismic changes usually, but I do think he's going to be good throughout the summer (given health, obv). He was toting a .800s OPS in late-May so it's not like he's been a garbage bag all year

Better ROS: Cutch or Stanton?
Paul Sporer
1:44
Yeesh. I'll say Stanton

Drop Will Smith for Kelley for short-term gain, even if Smith is potentially the closer for longer in Mil? Dynasty league and I'm not really hurting for saves/
Paul Sporer
1:45
If you're not hurting for saves and believe Smith is the long-term option, sit tight. I could see Smith being moved and setting up in a better pen, but I share the opinion of Kelley's short-termness since they're likely to trade for a closer or go right back to Pap

Reliever performance is more volatle season to season, but why does Fernando Rodney seem to operate on the furthest ends of the spectrum
Paul Sporer
1:45
Bc he has filthy stuff that is hard to command.

would Dilson Herrera at 2B and Walker at 3B be an upgrade for the NYM?
Paul Sporer
1:46
Probably not

Is there currently any major leaguer with a better name than Arquimedes Caminero?
Paul Sporer
1:46
That's a really strong candidate. Who else y'all got in this realm?

Eno was last seen entering a van with FREE IPA INSIDE written on the side. He hasn't been seen since.
Paul Sporer
1:47
I heard he was bro'ing out with Byrnes in the MLB Studios and they were both seen tackling Mark DeRosa on the red couch from MLB Centrla
Central*... dammit

Manuel Margot...next SD breakout player?
Paul Sporer
1:48
He's been solid at AAA! I could see him doing some things, but where's he gonna play rn? If jon Jay is dealt, scoop Margot immediately

Who would you trade Betts away for in a 12 team dynasty league? My list: Rizzo, Altuve, Arenado, Machado, Trout, Harper, Kersh. Am I missing anyone?
Paul Sporer
1:48
I'd need time to make a list I'm committed to, but I like yours. You're saying that's who you'd deal him for, right? It's definitely a short list

It seems to me that speculation around the trade deadline is of a much lower quality (?) than the chatter around free agency. Am I right? If so, any particular reason?
Paul Sporer
1:49
Just depends on the class of players for each so both vary season to season
1:50
This year's trade crop is dogshit so the rumors won't be as fierce. Coincidentally, this year's FA pool is also busted. But also, another reason is that the season is going on during the trade deadline so games on the field are always going to matter more. Free agency is the only game in town when it's going on

19 homers for Duvall now... what does a full season look like for him?

best double IPA in new york?? OH NO WHERES ENO

I have to say this Paul. I asked Eno a fantasy question on a FanGraphs article a while back and got a bunch of negative hits. Now here you are on the FanGraphs side getting a bunch of fantasy questions. Are the minions just unfair?
Paul Sporer
1:51
Maybe it's just bc you asked a specific fantasy question in the comments of a piece so it was out of place? this is a much better venue for something like that
Oh you Darvish
1:51
I dropped Conforto for Matt Holliday in a 10-team redraft OPS league. He'll bounce back at some point but I don't trust the wrist. Did I do OK?
Paul Sporer
1:51
Ya you did. Sucks bc I love Conforto, but I'm OK moving on in 10 teamers

For AL only leagues, if Braun gets traded to the AL, can we expect Ian Desmond like production?
Paul Sporer
1:51
You should expect Ryan Braun-like production!
Joe

Thoughts on Justin Upton in dynasty leagues? Still a 100/30/100/15/.350 OBP-guy?
Paul Sporer
1:52
I mean, not this year. But he's still a good OF and I expect a hot streak soon. He's striking the ball better of late and not missing nearly as m uch

5x5 ottoneu league. Trade $21 Kluber for $40 Bumgarner and $10 Cody Allen?
