Is Prince Fielder back???
Paul Sporer
2:59
Certainly looking like it more and more. Has about 30 games of about an .800 OPS

Too late to try to trade Aaron sanchez in a 12 team keeper? If not, what tier hitter/pitcher would you be looking to get in return?
Paul Sporer
2:59
No I think you still can. The IP limit is looming, but still can offer a chunk of success worth dealing for
3:01
As for what you should get, those questions are impossible and put entirely too much burden on me. Every league's trade market is different and so to try and name who you should be able to get is too tough. For those, it's better if you "do you think I can get Player X for Aaron Sanchez?" and of course there are still the questions of your league's specific trade market, but at least I can have an idea of what you're going for

Trying to get Cody Reed and Joey Gallo in my 20 team dynasty. Martin Perez, M. Margot and J. Flaherty seem fair or am I giving too much?
Paul Sporer
3:01
No that seems pretty fair

My picks to have a breakout second half: Baez and Pederson...both have had underappreciated but sizeable jumps in their contact and discipline #s, and I think the counting stats are coming. Agree/Disagree?
Paul Sporer
3:03
Been on that Joc bandwagon since February so I'm with you there. He's been solid, but hasn't quite broken out. I'm coming around on Baez. They're finding him time. he's power-speed, and as you mentioned, those Ks are coming down. I like both picks

Drop Shawn Kelley for Ryan Buchter in a 12 team league?
Paul Sporer
3:03
I'm OK w/that bc Buchter likely to hold the job longer than Kelley so despite being on the worse team, it's a viable move. If you really need saves, maybe just hold both?

Guerra or Smyly ROS? 12 team redraft.
Paul Sporer
3:06
Seems crazy that this is a question, but it's fair to ask. Guerra has been great w/that splitter. Smyly is just so damn volatile. Doug Thorburn HATES his mechanics and we've seen injuries be a consistent issue. I'm still going to lean Smyly bc the upside is higher and we just can't predict the health piece, but I think Guerra will remain solid all year

I was one of the lucky owners that grabbed Pineda when someone bailed at the end of May. What do you see his numbers looking like at season's end? Is he slowly garnering confidence to roll him out for every start? Dominating Texas today looks good.
Paul Sporer
3:07
The thing that REALLY frustrates me about Pineda is that he could allowed 8 ER next time out for good reason whatsoever. His volatility is utterly maddening. I'll tab him as a 4.10 ERA the rest of the season w/plenty of Ks. There is upside for more so he shouldn't be treated like any normal 4.10 ERA guy, but don't get TOO drunk on the recent run, we've seen him do this before and then his command evaporates and he pulls the rug out

So has Billy Hamilton traded power for speed this year? 3 HR v. 19 SB
Paul Sporer
3:09
Not sure he has enough control over his game to make such a choice. He has a little punch for his size and his HR/FB rate has doubled to 7%. The 13 2B might be the bigger change. He had 8 all of last yr. So starting on 2nd base has perhaps curbed some of his SB prowess. And then of course his godawful OBP doesn't help

Are you shopping Matz and Thor in redrafts?
Paul Sporer
3:09
Not really because you're selling low... or at least lower. I'd rather take a shot that it blows over and they get hot again and THEN start trying to sell
3:10
but by and large, this is just how it goes with pitching. they're all so damn risky so might as well hold some of the most-talented ones and hope for health as opposed to getting lesser guys who you think are healthy

NL only league with no bench so you have to take every start a pitcher makes. Is Chase Anderson worse than a blank spot on the roster?
Paul Sporer
3:10
I think I pass. Just too many damn HRs

Redraft league. Kershaw for Arrieta. Who says no?
Paul Sporer
3:11
Probably the Arrieta owner right now

I traded j Zimmerman for nola..... How dumb am I in this points league
Paul Sporer
3:11
LOL you're not dumb. It's not like J Zimm is rolling and at least Nola's skills are still there. Eno was still pretty bullish and eased some of my fears w/his piece on Nola

Traded Lindor for Stanton, 14 team OBP. Seager is other SS. Good move?
Paul Sporer
3:13
Dang, where's the discount on Stanton? That feels like full price. I can see a path where Stanton comes back to his level and this stings less, but I don't love it

What's Yoan Moncada's fantasy ceiling?
Paul Sporer
3:14
Ceiling is elite bc he runs, has some punch, and will join an incredible lineup
Deece

what is Cmart doing out there? sure he isnt giving up runs but where did the K's go?
Paul Sporer
3:16
But the WHIP is much lower so it kinda balances out
Hmm

Kipnis, Lindor, Bauer for Cano, Blackmon in a 10 team redraft. Fair?
Paul Sporer

Favors the Cleveland superfan, but it's fair.
