  1. So how good of a streaming option is Paulino for Friday against the White Sox? Gomez actually throws against the White Sox today, is he a good streaming option?

    I’m in a 12-team mixed by the way.

  2. I wouldn’t touch Gomez in a 12-team mixed, doesn’t have enough strikeout rate upside even with his improvement this year. The White Sox offense is sub-par, have an above average team walk rate (probably all Adam Dunn) and has the worst contact rate in the AL, also mostly Dunn. I think that makes Paulino a decent stream option. I am starting him in my LABR 15-team mixed and depending on my other options, would consider him in a 12-teamer.

  3. I drafted both very cheaply in my 12 team AL only roto league this year, and am very happy with the results. Both are extremely rosterable in al onlys, and moving towards mixed league relevance.

  4. How about Gomez spot starting in a H2H for two starts next week: @MIN and vsMIA?

  5. I’m in a 16-team mixed head-to-head league. I have Pomeranz but I’m frustrated with his inconsistent performance thus far. Both Gomez and Paulino are available. Would you drop Pomeranz for either? If so, which one would you prefer?

  6. I like Paulino much more than Pomeranz.

  7. Depends on the depth of your league and your other options.

  8. 18 team mixed league (23 man roster), just dropped Carl Pavano (3% owned) for Paulino (2% owned) after reading this. Smart?

  9. Yup!

  10. I would love to see a couple of paragraphs on Tomlin as well. I understand that he made some adjustments, and his ability to throw strikes has always been there. I wonder if his K rate is sustainable and if he can maintain a decent ERA.

    I agree on Paulino. I have had my eye on him the last few years and scooped him up in my AL only league last year. I imagine I read something that you posted pre-2010 that set me to watching him.

  11. I agree that Paulino > Pomeranz in general but both are prone to being inconsistent. I might like Pomeranz better if I had a deep bench and could spot start outside of Colorado against some of the weaker NL west lineups (SD and SF).

  12. Good advice! He blew up today against the Sox. Hope your 15-league team doesn’t take too much of a beating from his outing today :)

  13. In a deep mixed points league I’m deep with fringe SP like Nicasio, McDonald, Burnett, Duffy rotating from bench to my 5th starter- Paulino has dual elig so he can fill a RP slot for me which is valuable in our format- do I dump one of the SP above or do I dump Casey Janssen instead and put Paulino in as my third RP?

  14. I like Paulino more than McDonald, but since McDonald is young and has a nice ERA, would look to try doing a 2 for 1 or something, rather than just dropping him. I wouldn’t drop Janssen since he’s closing for the time being.

  15. Would you drop a McCarthy or Masterson for Paulino?

  17. Probably Masterson

  18. Paulino’s fastball velocity, as measured by Pitch F/X, was down in his second start. Perhaps the Pitch F/X velocity in Kansas City is miscalibrated again and is measuring pitches too fast?
