Corey Seager just hit #17. I dont think many projections in march had him for that much in a full season. Is he really a 30 homer bat at short this soon?
Paul Sporer
3:34
Ya projections wouldn't have him that high this year bc they're naturally conservative and he had like 9 minutes in the majors prior to this year, but big power output was always in the projection and his most aggressive proponents had mid-20s going for this year
So pushing mid-20s to low-30s isn't a stretch

Beef Welington or Derek Norris ROS? (12 teamer, all of us weeping at the state of the catcher position)
Paul Sporer
3:35
Beeeeef. Catcher is POOP this year
DW
3:35
Any info on a Severino promotion? What kind of value ROS?
Paul Sporer
3:36
Pitching well at AAA, could be back soon. I think when healthy, he's a solid arm (upper-3.00s ERA w/Ks and upside)
Cory
3:36
In a keeper league, would you trade VV for Berrios. I can keep Berrios one year longer
Paul Sporer
3:36
Yeah I'm OK with that for the extra year
Carl Carlson
3:37
Wait, you're on the "whoa" spelling but you spell yeah, "ya?" PS that's BS.
Paul Sporer
3:37
well both "whoa" and "ya" are correct, so ya, that's how I roll
3:38
Y'all know the red squiggle underline means it's wrong, right?
3:39
It was a good try, I guesss Carl....

Paul - who is a good stream for next week - Gray at home v. Phi, Bradley at home v. SD, or Fister at home v. Oak? Thanks...
Paul Sporer
3:39
Fister of those 3. I'm not messing with Coors at all. Still curious about Bradley
Team Ramrod

Billy Hamilton's head. How is it? Another concussion?
Paul Sporer
3:40
Ya I think he was concussed. It was bad, he got drilled with that flyball

To the guy complaining about his team's injuries: I lost Pollock before the season, Schwarber as soon as it started, Duda shortly thereafter. And then over the last couple of weeks traded for JD Martinez the day before he went down, had Darvish go down (who I'd been holding all season), had Vince Velasquez go down, had Fowler go down and had Justin Turner, McCullers and Story all go down for at least a couple days. Oh and I'm also holding Dee Gordon and JP Crawford. You can't match that level of horrid luck!
Paul Sporer
3:41
I think some of the other stories definitely compare bc they had more star power. Your volume has been severe, but Pollock and JD are the only *stars* there. I don't really feel bad for Darvish owners, that's part of the risk after TJ. Not disputing that you've taken it on the chin, but it's not worse than some of the other stories we've seen, it's comparable
Team Ramrod
3:41
So is Buchter the guy in San Diego now?
Paul Sporer
3:42
Ya, I think so
Jon Gray
3:42
Am I crazy for getting excited about Gray? His stuff looks great and his metrics are pretty good too.
Paul Sporer
3:42
No, but Coors is still a thing and really tamps down my excitement. I ride for Gray, though
A. Reitz

C. Rodon has been pretty darn good this year, minus the crazy HR totals. Is he destined to be a solid #3? Or can we still see a potential ace?
Paul Sporer
3:43
He has 221 MLB IP, so I don't think he's *destined* to anything yet. He still has a very high ceiling. It can take a few years

Hi Paul, had a question for a 6 x 6 league with OPS, head to head. Do you like Jonathon Schoop or Devon Travis more for ROS? Both have been hitting 2nd in the lineup lately. You thinking they will finish with similar production, or do you see one as clearly ahead of the other? I know you talked up Travis on the podcast the other day, but just interested how you view him compared to Schoop.
Paul Sporer
3:44
I prefer Schoop, but I acknowledge that Travis is better than I thought. His pop holding up has impressed. But Schoop has LEGIT POWER, I prefer him.

Please tell me why Starling Marte (he of the .331 BA half way in) is EVER batting 6th before I cry
Paul Sporer
3:44
LOL who knows
Jake from State Farm

Too early to be stashing Tyler O'Neill in a dynasty?
Paul Sporer
3:45
Really depends on league size
Christian
3:45
Which C do you prefer? Weiters, Gattis, or Contreras?
Paul Sporer
3:45
Wiets, but that trio is pretty close
JAL
3:47
Can I ever start Archer again?
Paul Sporer
3:48
Yeah, you almost have to start him bc of the Ks
and he's just been meh lately
if it was a buncha 5-6 ER outings, I'd feel comfortable benching him
N.W.enO
3:48
I think he should change his name from Erasmo to Erasmus.
Paul Sporer
3:49
LOL

Are the Mets jinxed? They went from potentially best young pitching staff we've ever seen to. Harvey stinking, Matz, Thor and Degrom injury concerns. Baseball is brutal...
