If it's just MLB player, it's Kershaw. Top position player can be Trout, Arenado, Machado, Altuve, Harper, Donaldson. Not sure there's a ton of room between those guys

Benintendi is starting to hit at AA--do you think he's up this year or drafted late next year?
Paul Sporer
3:29
Could be called up... after he's traded
Will
3:29
Which closer is more likely to lose his role - Dyson, Jeffress, Madson?
Paul Sporer
3:29
Madson
Stevie

Justin Turner ROS thoughts?
Paul Sporer
3:30
If he's healthy, he's gonna be good. I worried that the microfracture would impact him this year. It may have early on, but he's raking of late.

Hamels for LoCain?
Paul Sporer
3:30
solid deal!

My league is switching to: IP, QS, ERA, WHIP, K, & Net Saves+Holds. Is punting the NetS+H a sound strategy and just loading up on SPs like crazy?
Paul Sporer
3:32
I mean, it gives you the 3 categories, but you're still at risk for ERA/WHIP. An RP-focused plan would go the other way where ERA/WHIP/NSH are you strengths. I'd really just go for balance, tbh
but maybe that's why I don't win a lot of H2H lgs
Mike

Is it time to give up on Liriano in 8 team NL only leagues and/or deep 12 team leagues? I keep thinking he is going to rein in the walks, but they keep spiraling out of control.
Paul Sporer
3:35
Completely fine moving on from him. He looks turrrrible
Chad
3:35
How did Daniel Norris look today? Is he worthy of grabbing in a 12 team redraft or just a streaming option?
Paul Sporer
3:37
Only saw a bit as I went to lunch w/my sis & niece before this chat so I'll know more later when I watch replay. He's only a streaming option right now even if he looked great today, though
Nick
3:37
in a redraft - Thor or McCutcheon ROS?
Paul Sporer
3:37
Thor, even with the scare
Andy
3:37
What do you expect ROS from Cutch? Is he a buy-low? Is he hurt? Will be at least get some SBs?
Paul Sporer
3:38
If he's hurt, he isn't going to run. If he's not hurt, I think he'll be good-not-great (like 120ish OPS+)
Eric

Should we be worried about Melancon'd value w possible trade and FA coming up? With that in mind, trade Melancon (keeper in 11th) or Dyson (keep in 14th) for offense? Thanks
Paul Sporer
3:38
I feel like he'd be dealt to become closer somewhere, though. He's been REALLY good in that role for several years. But if you're concerned, then deal him.
Jaxson
3:38
Would .260 w/ 20 HR for the ROS be all that stunning for Trumbo (assuming good health of course)?
Paul Sporer
3:39
not STUNNING, but still very useful
Friend
3:39
Traded Conforto and Tillman for Justin Upton? Thoughts? Deep at pitching
Paul Sporer
3:39
That's solid
RRBR
3:39
Stroman and Rodon enought for Strasburg in a dynasty?
Paul Sporer
3:39
Probably not if you're offering it to Stras team
Eric
3:39
Yordano or Duffy the better KC starter ROS?
Paul Sporer
3:40
Gimme Duffy, though I see Yordano getting on track a little in his last 2
Guest

Well do you take Xander or Correa?
Paul Sporer
3:41
It's kind of coinflippy w/these SS - Xander, Correa, Lindor, and Seager. I'm a huge Bogaerts fan so I'll actually lean him. That's pro-Bogy, not anti-Correa
Argo
3:42
Grossman or H. Kim? I was feeling grossman but now not sure
Paul Sporer
3:43
Grossman does more fantasy relevant stuff (even though he hasn't run this year yet). Kim better real life than fantasy
KD
3:43
NL only- team in contention: $9 Soler or $18 Domingo
Paul Sporer
3:43
Domingo isn't worth 2x, gotta go Soler
Jaxson
3:43
Interesting tidbit: Contreras playing 1B today for the Cubs. Nice to know in case Rizzo ever misses serious time.
Paul Sporer
3:43
Nice
Eric
3:43
Kendrys Morales' hot streak a sign of a strong second half or just smoke?
Paul Sporer
3:44
I'm always careful to not just use BABIP as a luck-o-meter, but his was .211 coming into June despite a near-identical hitting profile to last year so I think he was unlucky. I'd buy
