Halp in NL only daily 10 cat veto/approve trade of hamels for Weeks/Taveras?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:02  David
 
 
2:03
 
John Halpin: 
I'm not big on vetoes unless there's collusion, and it's not like Hamels is pitching great. In a keeper league, it's very fair. Non-keeper, the Hamels side clearly wins.

C.Martinez of cards and C.Gaudin! Think either is a good add in NL only 8 team daily league?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:06  SPs on Wire

John Halpin: 
Gaudin is pitching well, worth a shot. As talented as Martinez is, not sure where he fits with the Cards if there isn't an injury.

With Braun on the DL, I need someone in left field. Who do you like best of this bunch - Victorino, Prado, or the surprising Ibanez?

Victorino, and hope he stays healthy. The devil will come to claim Ibanez's soul sometime soon.

Thursday June 27, 2013  2:07  gavin
 
 
2:09
 
John Halpin: 
I don't think you can get much for either guy in a standard league, Gavin. They're both kind of OK, not bad to have. If you can get something good for Tillman, go for it.

Your opinion on whether Gallardo or C.Lee get traded at deadline? Any suitors you know of right now?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:11  Trader Joes-NC.
 
 
2:12
 
John Halpin: 
Yes on Gallardo, not sure about Lee and his big contract. Dodgers are always looking to absorb other teams' mistakes, but beyond that I don't know about suitors.

[ Comment From B B:  ]
Thoughts on A.Dunn and/or M.Reynolds in an AL only league w/12 teams.. Tons of HR/RBI/Runs worth the low BA?

I'd say one, but not both. Prefer Dunn.

Shaun Marcum looked improved last night and rumor is he developed a new pitch. Can we expect Marcum to be better than advertised?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:13  JJ
 
 
2:13
 
John Halpin: 
I've always been a Marcum fan. 3.50 ERA if healthy, maybe?

and whose the one guy that not may leauges have on a roster that everyone should be looking out for or even get?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:13  gavin
 
 
2:15
 
John Halpin: 
It depends on the league, but Leonys Martin is getting close to fitting that description.

Prado is on the waiver wire. Drop Scutaro for him?

I would.

[ Comment From Brian Brian:  ]
Been patient with Starlin Castro and have started him every week this season. But I recently picked up Iglesias in Boston. With him getting every-day at bats, would you make the switch? Not dropping, but benching Castro.
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:16  Brian
 
 
2:17
 
John Halpin: 
Nah. Iglesias should come back to Earth soon, and Castro will be (and is) a much better player. Trying to pick the point where Iglesias starts to slump is too difficult - start the better guy.

Blanks or Moreland? The Ranger hasn't done much since coming off the DL.
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:17  chris
 
 
2:17
 
John Halpin: 
Moreland. I like Blanks, but he could run into playing time issues when the Pads get healthy.

I see him listed as probable for Monday at home against the Padres. Start him.

[ Comment From chris chris:  ]
Do you like Hector Santiago's chances to stick as a starter in Chicago? Could use the Ks.
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:18  chris
 
 
2:20
 
John Halpin: 
I kind of like him, and think he'll be a better option for them than Axelrod when Peavy gets healthy.

2:20
 
[ Comment From Boose Boose:  ]
Both Dunn & Reynolds is part of my BA problem. If you like Dunn then let's do DeAza, Dunn, and Pettitte for Adam Jones? "Chat-Bombed"
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:20  Boose
 
 
2:21
 
John Halpin: 
Boose is in the AL keeper league I've played in since 1988. This is a keeper league - let me know what you think of Boose's offer over the next 40 minutes.

Who you got: Leonys Martin or a healthy Bourjos?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:21  chris
 
 
2:22

In April, I'd have said Bourjos. Not any more.

[ Comment From Jim Jim:  ]
Ricky Nolasco seems much improved. He is obviously showcasing right now. Does he get moved to another team, and does he keep the success?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:22  Jim
 
 
2:22
 
John Halpin: 
Yes, he gets moved. Success depends on his new home park - the one in Miami is very pitcher-friendly, and it's helping him.
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:22  John Halpin
 
 
2:22
 
[ Comment From Dan B Dan B:  ]
Also, refering to what @chris said, do you think a turnaround is likely for Prado? and if so, sooner or later?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:22  Dan B
 
 
2:23
 
John Halpin: 
Yes for BA, not sure about steals. I usually assume that guys tend to reach their usual levels, and slumps can end anytime.
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:23  John Halpin
 
 
2:23
 
[ Comment From Todd Todd:  ]
Is there a better example of a Jekyll and Hyde pitcher than Gallardo? He's so frustrating to own. Talent is there, but concentration seems to escape from time to time.
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:23  Todd
 
 
2:24
 
John Halpin: 
This year is different - where are all the Ks?

[ Comment From Chris Chris:  ]
John, how long do you think Benoit keeps the closer role in Detroit? Isn't he better than what's available on the market?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:24  Chris
 
 
2:24
 
John Halpin: 
Maybe, but I'm not sure the Tigers think that. Listen to Leyland, who said in the offseason he didn't want Benoit to pitch on back-to-back days, and still seems like he doesn't want to make a commitment to him.
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:24  John Halpin
 
 
2:25
 
John Halpin: 
I think they make a deal.

[ Comment From Dan B Dan B:  ]
Have Longoria, Machado, and Sandoval in Fox league H2H, only 1 util spot...got offered Wainwright and Holliday for Machado and Bumgarner..yes or no?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:25  Dan B
 
 
2:26
 
John Halpin: 
I think I'd do that UNLESS it's a keeper league. Machado is a great talent, and has played well, but for the second half of 2013, I think he'll be overrated.
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:26  John Halpin

Better SS rest of year, Prado, Castro, Rutledge, or Scoot?

Castro. I'm stubborn.

Yasiel Puig; sell while he's hot or keep him?

[ Comment From Dan B Dan B:  ]
Elvis Andrus available. category league of HRs, Rs, RBIs, AVG, and SB for offensive categories. Worth picking him up to drop...Martin Prado?
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:28  Dan B
 
 
2:28
 
John Halpin: 
Only if you need steals. I think Andrus is the most overrated fantasy player on Earth, and maybe even in the galaxy.
 
 
Thursday June 27, 2013  2:28  John Halpin

Sounds like he's going to start Saturday. The guy started the season in A ball, and isn't regarded as a big-time prospect. Be careful, even if he's going against the Mets.

Yes with runs, RBI and BA. Home runs, not so sure. He doesn't hit enough fly balls. Maybe 10 in the second half, but not close to last year's 29.

I think he'll be fine. He's walking more, because there's no need to ever throw him a strike. But, he's not too far from the .300 you need.

Would you trade iwakuma or hold on to him the rest of the year? If you were trading him what would you aim for?

John Halpin: 
I like him a lot - trade target depends on your need. I suspect that you won't get as much as he's worth because people don't trust him yet.

John Halpin: 
Not in a standard mixed league. In deeper formats with benches, yes.

Any chance this chat next week can be held on Tuesday? Not sure you'll have much of an audience next Thursday.

Teheran staying solid the whole year or fizzling out??

John Halpin: 
I'm a fan, but as well as he's pitched, he could be the victim of Beachy's return if it coincides with a few shaky starts. A 3.50-3.75 ERA sounds about right.

phillies? buyers or sellers? who moves?

John Halpin: 
Sellers if they're smart. Lots of big contracts that'll be difficult to move, though. People will beat down their door for Lee, and to a lesser extent for Papelbon, but they'll need to eat money. Michael Young's contract is up, but he's not so good any more. Would they trade Utley? Hmm ...

Erasmo. They have no need to rush Walker.

Kluber, Tillman, Wood, Colon, Stults. I think Colon fades or gets hurt.

sorry for so many comments/questions but you're a big help: Being frank - time to dump Gallardo for say Arroyo or Lackey?? H2H points Fox league

John Halpin: 
I think Lackey is worth a try at this point. He's been terrific.

[ Comment From chris chris:  ]
I resented Mike Leake because he got in the way of Cingrani but I have to admit the guy's been impressive. Does he keep this up and do I dare start him against the Rangers in Texas this weekend?

John Halpin: 
Love all the ground balls, right? The Rangers aren't the mashers they used to be, but I might avoid Leake in that one. Close call.

Next Tuesday, when eligible. The Padres seem pretty certain he'll be ready.

Thank you for answering my questions. I have another one what do you expect from kyle Gibson the rest of the year?

John Halpin: 
Good performance - 3.50 ERA? - but an innings limit of maybe 150. Don't get too attached to him.
