1:53 – @beckryac asks about a rebuild and, specifically, what he should do about his abundance of 3B. Particular focus is placed on the value of Anthony Rendon, Patrick Wisdom, and Brett Baty.

11:32 – @KevinColin12 is wondering what the return should be for high-end prospects. Cash in or sit on them? Is George Springer enough of a return for top prospects?

18:36 – @ldavidjm had a question about minor league spots and how they impact a prospect’s value. A conversation about prospects in general follows, and a discussion about whether or not a $2 Gunnar Henderson and $2 Corbin Carroll should be traded for an $80 Jacob deGrom.

26:19Francisco Álvarez is struggling a bit at Triple A. Pete is thinking about how he values catchers, especially prospect catchers, in fantasy baseball.

33:21 – @vikabot1 wants to know if he should move Nick Pratto for a reliever and if it makes sense to “stash” relievers in Ottoneu points leagues.

40:12 – @HammiltonPorter has a $31 Pete Alonso, $12 Josh Bell, and a $3 Vinnie Pasquantino. He’s wondering if he should sell one of them for some starting pitching help.

46:05 – @orangefire_ is also choosing which first baseman to trade out of José Abreu, Christian Walker, and Pasquantino. 

52:53 – @brittonallan wants thoughts on a Corey Seager and Tommy Pham for Alexis Díaz, David Bednar, and Tarik Skubal trade. 

1:02:34 – Chad is making a ton of moves in his leagues, but trading Luis Robert for Jordan Walker and Taj Bradley is not one of them. What about Aaron Ashby, Ketel Marte, Harrison Bader, and JJ Bleday for Alex Bregman and Jorge Polanco?
