10-team H2h formats. I find myself in the same scenario in two leagues, my lineups are top notch, but my starters are mostly hurt and struggling. My competitors are largely ignoring rp's and closers, so I'm well stocked there. Is it too risky to trade off some starters to form a super team of relievers and hitters? (wins, k, saves, era, whip)
Paul Sporer
12:13
I'm not sure you'd take Wins w/a buncha RPs, but I'm OK going with the strategy
Nate

What kind of return can I get from trading Lucroy? (12 team, head-head Yahoo league)
Paul Sporer
12:15
These questions are impossible to answer. Every league market is completely different so I can't even really foster a guess. I'd put him out there and see if you find a deal that suits you

There's not a reason to hold on to Jung Ho Kang anymore is there? He's been struggling mightily and a suspension is almost certainly coming soon.
Paul Sporer
12:15
Depends on league type
12:16
but ya his struggles seem to line up with the allegations he's facing. it is still innocent until proven guilty, but it's not going well right now
Red West

Could you rank these long/middle relievers and tell me which ones are worth rostering in AL-Only: Felix (Hou), Andrese (TB), Karns (Sea), Flynn (KC), Bundy (Balt).
Paul Sporer
12:16
Feliz, Bundy, Karns are my faves

Greinke for Dee Gordon - which side do you like value-wise? 10-team H2H league with standard categories; both trade partners likely to make playoffs so don't worry about the next couple of weeks.
Paul Sporer
12:17
Gimme Gordon there

I forgot to mention my 1 keeper always is (and will be, because I friggin love him) is Kershaw. So I'd be looking at a Kershaw & Betts combo...?
Paul Sporer
12:18
Ohhhhh ok. Ya I'd go with those 2, but honestly Betts v. JD is a total coinflip, IMO
Tim
12:18
You throwing Gerrit Cole out there in his first start back?
Paul Sporer
12:18
I would, yes

Harvey was abused (although, not as bad as some in NCAA) at UNC and now he's had all sorts of health issues. I know we can prove causation, but folks in NC refuse to acknowledge any misuse when it is done by their beloved Coach Fox (and I'm a Tar Heel). Damn shame.
Paul Sporer
12:18
The downside looming over most college SPs, tbh
Seabass

If you had to spend $3000 in one of these two ways, would you spend it on a tuna sandwich a day for two straight years or pokeballs in pokemon go?
Paul Sporer
12:19
I don't playe Pokemon, but that's what I'd spend it on
Because otherwise, that's entirely too much tuna
(you got prahnkt)

I'm worried about losing Kang to a suspension in the 2nd half; which SS would be a better replacement: Cozart or Gregorious? 12 tm h2h
Paul Sporer
12:19
Gimme Didi

Abreu, Pearce, Zimmerman, Mauer or Solarte at 1B in an OBP/XBH 12 team ROS?
Paul Sporer
12:20
I'll still take the shot on Abreu. Love Solarte, but his value is using him elsewhere, not 1B
Bart
12:20
please rank Peralta, Bour (both on the DL) and Grichek.
Paul Sporer
12:21
Bour, Grich, Peralta (love Peralta, but his health has been sketchy all year)

In a K friendly points league, would you rather keep Arrieta for 1 year or M Fulmer for 3 years? Both $1
Paul Sporer
12:21
Still Arrieta
The Kid
12:21
Frazier seemed to have balls start to drop going into the ASB. It's gotta get better for him in the second half, right? Or, do you foresee the same kind of second half ineptitude that has plagued him the past two seasons?
Paul Sporer
12:22
Ya his batted ball profile has started to round into form in July so I expect better BABIP results as long as he's stinging it
Eric
12:22
Who's closing for the Brewers after the deadline? Jeffress? Smith? Some rando?
Paul Sporer
12:23
really depends who gets moved. I think Jeffress stays, so I'll say him
Andrew
12:23
does Maurer keep the role all year and deliver solid ratios?
Paul Sporer
12:25
Oh snap, Maurer news missed my radar. Thought it was still Buchter getting the role. I think Maurer holds it if he keeps the ball in the park, which he has of late: 1.98 ERA, 18 Ks in 13.7 IP w/0 HR
Victor
12:26
Aaron Sanchez is on fire right now, should I try to use inning cap limit to scare owner into trading him to me? AL only dynasty
Paul Sporer
12:26
ya if you can make it to the finish line with someone else, then you can reap the future rewards. love Sanchez
Matt

Sold off this season, and shooting for first ever 10 point roto season. Purchased Cobb at $1 for a keeper for next year. Thoughts?
Paul Sporer
12:27
I like the gamble. Always been a Cobb backer. I hope he comes back from the TJ nicely. Health always a concern w/him (even more so than normal for SPs)
Chopper Dave
12:27
Stroman still intriguing in deep AL-Only dynasty leagues? I just bought low.
