Are Cody Reed and A.J. Reed on paths to value this season?
Paul Sporer
11:50
That really depends on league type. Cody needs to find a way to keep the damn ball in the yard, so I'd lean AJ between the two
Dave

What does Sonny Gray's second half look like?
Paul Sporer
11:52
Upper-3.00s, low-4.00s. Can't seem to avoid that implosion start
Curious

Keeper league, trade Bregman for Moncada?
Paul Sporer
11:52
Sure. Two of the very best prospects in the game, though so hard to go wrong
Willie
11:53
Do you think Corey Dickerson is starting to come around? Who would you rather have ROS Dickerson or Chris Carter?
Paul Sporer
11:53
I'd lean Carter

Any reason to expect a strong second half from Smyly, Liriano, or Corbin? My league is H2H Mixed 6x6 and those three guys have been killing me, but I haven't been able to bring myself to cut them.
Paul Sporer
11:55
Liriano is a total mess, Corbin has been getting BLASTED (39% hard contact), and Smyly has been super volatile thanks to HRs. Of the 3, I prefer Smyly, but all three have enough warts to be leery. I'd go ahead and cut Corbin immediately

Paul need a starting pitcher: Lucas Harrell, Mike Montgomery, Luis Perdomo or Tyler Duffey?
Paul Sporer
11:57
Isn't Monty just a spot starter right now? I'll sneak tip Perdomo

Listened to you and Eno's rough draft of top 5 players. No mention of Donaldson. Where does he rank? Numbers alone, he has to be above Bryant, Betts, Harper and Arenado. The guy is amazing! Give that man some love!
Paul Sporer
11:59
lots of candidates for that top 5 for sure. I can't quibble w/JD love. He will be 31 next year, but that's not old and he's elite

What's your guess for when Sanchez is going to be moved to the pen?
Paul Sporer

mid-August

Do you see Ji Man Choi doing anything beyond being a replacement quality player in Anaheim while Cron is injured?
Paul Sporer
12:01
Nah, not really

What do you think of Reddick in 12 team leagues? Does he have enough power to matter? Grichuk is on the wire, but I don't know what to expect from him at this point.
Paul Sporer
12:02
I'd go Reddick over Grichuk. Reddick could be joining a new, better lineup very soon, too
Dick Allen
12:02
Kyle Seager and Jake Lamb, who do I hold on to and who do I try to trade in a 12-team roto league? With Arenado as my starting third baseman and only 1 utility spot im out of room.
Paul Sporer
12:02
I think Lamb gets you more on the market right now

Hi Paul. I am curious what you think about Danny Espinosa ROS and beyond. He's at 2.5 WAR this year, with just over half of that from defense. The projections expect his second half to be 0.6-0.8 WAR, presumably keeping the defense but giving up all of his offensive gains. Does that sound right to you?
Paul Sporer
12:04
I'm a little mad at him because I actually really liked him as a late round pick this year under the assumption that Baker would lean on him over Turner bc he favors vets. But when he had a .199/.297/.325 through may, I started cutting him. Grrr. Anyway, i think his proetions ROS are in line

Conforto or Benintendi ROS? What about for 2017?
Paul Sporer
12:05
Conforto for both. I just don't have a read on Beni yet
Mikey

Time to dump Blake Snell in redraft league?
Paul Sporer
12:05
Not yet. They could be active at the deadline and open a permanent spot for him
Jeff

10 team mixed, ROS for Wins and Whip, who do you like out of Wacha, Danny Duffy, Mccarthy or Porcello? just stream for fear of puking on your polo just rostering these guys all summer? Or do any stand out to you, thanks and as always, really appreciate the work you do. You and Eno should do a traveling live Bar podcast a week out of the year.
Paul Sporer
12:07
RE: the last idea, that'd be really fun. I'd go with Duffy of that group. Really nice upside. If he can just keep the ball in the yard a littttllleeee more.....
Floyd Rayford
12:07
In AL-only, is either J Morneau or C Collabello worth picking up if you have nobody else by Jefry Marte to play Corner Infield?
Paul Sporer
12:08
I guess you can take a shot on Colabello.
Seabass

Time to shotgun my second chicken parm sub of the day
Paul Sporer

LOL noyce!
Alex

What level tier hitter or pitcher should I be looking at in selling Fulmer?
Paul Sporer
12:09
As high as you can get!
Markets will vary. I'd go for as high of a bat as I could get

What are the odds that Tyson Ross bounces back when he comes off the DL? Is he a good buy-low candidate?
Paul Sporer
12:10
Ya I think he's a worthy gamble, especially with wires being so thin right now
