Whatever the market will bear, tbh. Really difficult for me to identify that because it's entirely based on standings, needs, and what your other leaguemates will pay

I miss when Manny Machado would run. Why isn't he running anymore? He's still super awesome but if he could get me 15ish steals like he used to, that would be v helpful!
Paul Sporer

6 SB per 162 games from 2012-14 then a spike to 20 last year. Not sure we should be too surprised by the fall off. Steals are remarkably volatile which is why they're tough to rely on from anyone but the true rabbits like B-Ham, Revere, and that ilk

Is Lonnie Chisenhall destined to be a dude who has a string of awesome games so you pick him up on waivers only to have him do nothing in your lineup only to drop him so some other poor sucker can fall for the same trap forever and ever?
Paul Sporer
2:24
Ya, I mean. He's a capable major leaguer so he will have stretches of usefulness, but he's not a star so tough to rely on him

Need saves badly: Puig too much to give up for Osuna in 10-team redraft?
Paul Sporer
2:24
No, Osuna is a beast
Who is John Gant?

In a league with limited keeper spots, Urias puts you in a bit of a bind, right? Will still have an innings limit next year, no more data points for this year, and hasn't been dominant enough to be clearly worth the stash. Total question mark.
Paul Sporer
2:25
Totally agree. Would be a question mark as a 20 y/o SP without the IP concerns, those just make it a lot worse. Tough keep in anything but NL-only and dynasty
Ian

Would you deal Correa/Tillman for Stras/Semien in a H2H points, keep 3? Points so SP are super key and have Trout/Kershaw/Thor as other potential keepers to offset Correa... Just have visions of rolling Kershaw, Thor, Strasburg, Tanaka in a playoff week.
Paul Sporer
2:28
I would honestly say not to give any real consideration to the keeper aspect right now. You're trying to win and that's what matters. If you think this makes the team better, push forward. I generally prefer the Correa side, but if pitching is v important then you might want to get Stras just so you have volume to cover things in the playoffs. Consider that all four of those horses are risky. Kershaw already on DL. Thor has elbow issues. Stras just off DL. Tanaka UCL tear he's been playing through. Feels weird that RIGHT NOW, Tanaka is the safest of that group
Papi

What's wrong with Y. Grandal this year? Can he recover? Droppable in 14 team OBP league?
Paul Sporer

Gary

Do you think we see Bregman or Benintendi after the ASG? Who's up first?
Paul Sporer
2:30
No idea who comes first, but yeah I think we can see 'em both, though I wouldn't be surprised if Benintendi isn't up for another team after a big trade
Pesky

Rank for ROS: Eickhoff, Paxton, DeSclafani?
Paul Sporer
2:30
Pax, Eick, Desc

Trevor May closes in Min. when?
Paul Sporer
2:31
...he starts pitching better?
Russ
2:31
looking toward h2h playoffs... should roster construction philosophy be any different for the post season?
Paul Sporer
2:31
It should be whatever wins. The fantasy playoffs aren't really any different, unless your scoring changes, right?
Lance
2:32
Leave Verjiggity on the pine tonight at Rogers Centre?
Paul Sporer
2:32
Verjiggity? But no, I wouldn't. I start my studs
All Betts Off
2:32
Very deep redraft. SP's are at a premium. Will Karns stay in the Pen ROS?
Paul Sporer
2:33
I can see him getting back in as needs arise for SEA
knasty3890
2:33
Given the lack of SP on the market and no big name SP available in the offseason. Should bubble teams like Miami try to trade Fernandez due to his value will never be higher
Paul Sporer
2:34
No, they're 2.5 out of the WC. You can still get more in the offseason with that kind of deal.
Gavin
2:34
Pineda good enough to get three outs an inning. Why go to the stretch at all when that's where everything falls apart. Let them run! He'll get out of it! What is so crazy about that?
Paul Sporer
2:35
Might not be a bad idea (~.870 OPS w/runners on the last 2 yrs)
Lucas
2:35
12 team H2H redraft. Offered Brett Gardner for David Robertson. I already have 5 closers for four spots. Good value?
Paul Sporer
2:36
Pretty fair deal
Sammy Meatballs is a loon
2:36
How many innings left for Taillon IF he comes back this year?
Paul Sporer
2:37
Maybe ~40?
Sandy Leon
2:37
Will I be better than Jason Castro or Yan Gomes ROS?
Paul Sporer
2:38
No
Gest

How confident are you in kershaw's ability to bounce back from this back injury?
Paul Sporer

Very

Paul Sporer

Gimme Grich

Bregman is almost getting over-hyped at this point, should I sell even in an AL Dynasty league or is he too rare of a talent?
