I have two 1B and only room for one. Wuld you rather have AJ Reed or the warm corpse of Pujols? ROS only.
Paul Sporer
2:10
Still Pujols, I think

H2H OBP/SLG league: My Papi and Nola for his Marte and Bumgarner? Papi is a top 5 bat with our settings right now.
Paul Sporer
2:10
Papi rules, but gimme the Marte/Mad Bum

Any reason to expect A-Gonz to start hitting again?
Paul Sporer

Track record
2:11
I'm not being flip, that's just the best we've got right now. And the fact that even his slow first 3 months is still about league average. Needs to get the ball back in the air

start taijuan vs. baltimore tonight in a 12-team quality starts league? or wait to see if he can pitch with this foot issue?
Paul Sporer
2:12
I'm OK passing espec bc that's a tough matchup even at full health
Young Jeezy
2:12
oh and I have those 3 in a league that only has 2 DL spots
Paul Sporer
2:12
NOOOOOO.

I can trade Nelson Cruz for Tanaka or Hamels. Who would you rather? Should I be expecting more for cruz? 8 tm AL only. Thanks!
Paul Sporer
2:15
Neither of those is a bad return and if it's the best the market will return and pitching is your need, then I'd take Hamels. But I feel like he can get you just about any AL SP so I'd shoot higher. Maybe one of the Cleveland trio

How long is Kershaw going to be out for?
Paul Sporer
2:15
I heard 2 starts, but who knows. It's v early
Eddy
2:15
Paul do you play any boardgames? If so, which?
Paul Sporer
2:16
Not anymore. But I used to play Strat-o-Matic w/some regularity
Gary
2:16
Any chance Benitendi is up this year?
Red Sox LF is ugly.
Paul Sporer
2:16
Sure, there's a chance, but I could actually see him being traded for whatever big piece(s) they get
John
2:17
When do you see Berrios getting called up and what % chance do you think he has to put up ace numbers in the second half?
Paul Sporer
2:17
Ace numbers? Like 5% chance. But I think if he gets a second look, he'll ease in and start performing like we've seen w/Fulmer, Urias, and Manaea. They all struggled right away and got better as they got more reps
Chris

Including today, Pineda has a 3.27 ERA for the month of June and a 49/8 K/BB rate. I would say that he has actually helped his owners quite a bit.
Paul Sporer
2:18
if they picked him up after someone else cut him, otherwise Apr and May still count
2:19
I'm not new to Pineda. I've been on the train before... driving the damn train. Even a month isn't enough to convince me. I'm sleeping w/one eye open re: Pineda
Chris

Just wanted to say love the late-night streams
Paul Sporer

Thanks so much! Love playing MLB The Show. Were you there last night for "The Comeback"? https://www.twitch.tv/psporer24/v/75451544

10 tm mixer - Danny Valencia, Melvin Upton Jr, or Leonys Martin?
Paul Sporer
2:20
Leonys for me!

Everyone seems to still be on board the James Paxton train despite his last three rough starts. What sayeth you?
Paul Sporer
2:23
The anatomy of those don't worry me. First off 6 IP/3 ER isn't rough. Spare me the "it's a 4.50 ERA" stuff. It wasn't a bad outing. Detroit outing wasn't even bad, either, tbh. He was rolling but the Tigers got him a bit late (as they often do that on that 3rd time through). And then StL was one bad inning. I watched chunks or all of those and don't see any reasons for major concern

5x5 ottoneu league: trade $8 Trea Turner & $3 Glasnow for $24 Zobrist and $16 K-Rod?
Paul Sporer
2:23
Looks like a go-for-it deal if you're getting the 2 vets and I like it
VVac Blows
2:23
Thoughts on AJ Reed's slow start?
Paul Sporer
2:24
It's 18 PA
It's not even a start yet, ya know? It's a blip. I know it's 0-for-18 so it can start to snowball as he presses for that first hit, but it's nothing to really worry about in the long term
Cat-Dog
2:24
Who do like more long term: Clint Frazier or Bradley Zimmer?
Paul Sporer
2:24
Zimm
Joel
2:24
Paxton or Bauer ROS?
Paul Sporer
2:25
I'm a huge Paxton fan, but his health record makes it tough to fully buy in over another pedigree arm putting it together, so I'll go Bauer
