Sano or profar and sonny gray for seager and glasnow?
Paul Sporer
2:58
Prefer Seager side even though I'm not super-high on Glasnow (espec. for '16)

Bryant

Signs of life from Keuchel? Is he getting back to must-start in 10-team leagues?
Paul Sporer
3:01
Gah, it didn't get my timestamp on that second one... just ffwd to :58 for the joke
3:02
but yeah, that's about how I feel re: Keuchel

How do you rank Guerra, Bauer, Chen, Snell and Conley ROS?
Paul Sporer
3:05
Interesting group. Not a lot of split between em. Conley, Bauer, Guerra, Snell (just think TB will put limits on him that hold him back), and Chen (loved him coming into the season, but he's been brutal... just waaaay too many HRs)

I traded K Seager and Odorizzi for Blackmon and Jake Lamb in a 12 team H2H league...did I do ok or was I drinking too much of Eno's Jake Lamb Kool-Aid?
Paul Sporer
3:05
You did well. That's a solid trade on both sides

How much of a leash does Rosenthal have with the Cards?
Paul Sporer
3:06
I imagine it's tightening, but the fact that he's still in role tells us that he has something of a lengthy leash
I'm scooping Oh in leagues where I'm saves speculating

I swear, I usually don't do this...In a 14 Team, keep 10 league where I'm "going for it," am I being silly not jumping on a Hamels-Moncada for Glasnow-AJ Reed offer? I could use Hamels (literally any half-decent SP's are rostered). I'm leery Glasnow is gonna be Thor in 2 years...
Paul Sporer
3:07
Not silly, but I'd do the deal. I don't share your rosy outlook of Glasnow. His height can be a negative in that it makes repeating difficult which breeds control issues. Plus Moncada is arguably baseball's top prospect. Love this deal for you, tbh

Is Fielder done? Do you expect TEX to call up Gallo to take his place (or Moreland's place)?
Paul Sporer
3:08
I doubt he just rots on the bench, so he'd have to hit the DL for something like that to happen. He's been doing alright of late... though it's sad when we're hyped on a .744 OPS over 16 games

Fulmer or Cody Reed - ROS?
Paul Sporer

Fulmer

Paul I am in DL Hell right now. Bautista and Fowler recently joined Sano, Brantley and VV and I only have 3 slots. Which two do I let go? Sano and Brantley were both keepers and it would make my ego very sad to cut bait with them.
Paul Sporer
3:12
OUCH! That is DL hell for sure. I think you gotta chop VV and Brantley. I hear you on the ego piece re: Brantley, but his outlook seems to get worse and worse. Is trading an option at all? To someone who might wanna spec and has a free DL spot? You'll be selling low, but better than cutting

Short closers so speculating on Quality relievers. Will Smith, or one of the Feliz Boys (Neftali or Michael)?
Paul Sporer
3:13
not sure Michael Feliz can do enough to get it as Giles would prob get a look if Harris faltered. Neftali could get in if Melancon is traded (which would presume Pittsburgh re-tooling for '17). So I'll say Smith is best bet of those
Oddbal Herrera
3:13
Plouffe injured, our 'where does Sano play's problem is solved!!! Er, for now
Paul Sporer
3:13
LOL don't be so happy about someone getting hurt
Those situations always sort themselves out
The Cincinnati Kid

I've got Posey, Gattis is available. Is Gattis at Catcher and moving Posey to 1B a bigger upgrade than C. Santana or Shaw?
Paul Sporer
3:14
No. Never run out 2 Cs if you can avoid it. The playing time hit isn't worth it.

Is Lucas Giolito a classically overhyped, all arm, no results guy or should I hold him in a keep 6 forever league? Is he worth holding for 2017 because I know he's not doing anything in 16.
Paul Sporer
3:15
Ouch, no! No results? He has a 2.74 ERA and almost 10 Ks per nine in 325 MiLB IP. He's 21. How about some patience? :)

3:25
am I silly for falling in love with Justin Upton again?
Paul Sporer
3:26
No, you're not. BTW, this will close the book on J Up related Qs. I'm comfortable saying he's pretty much back.
Tom

Will AJ Reed and/or Bregman be factors in 2016?
Paul Sporer
3:26
Not sure, tbh. I think Reed will def a get look and Bregman certainly could.
Eric

Best overall player right now? Is it still Trout? Or has he been supplanted by Kershaw or Altuve?
