Q: @Albertosom How do you rank Jace Paterson, José Ramírez and Micah Johnson? Answer: Ramirez, Johnson, Peterson

Q: @ClaraLauwers What's your opinion on how good Steven Souza will be this year? Answer: Should be 15-15, could be 20-20. But he might not hit for a high average.

Q: @ryan34williams Should I trade Drew Storen, Neftali Feliz and Chris Owings for Ben Zobrist and Marlon Byrd in a 20-team head-to-head league? Answer: No. In a deep league, closers are valuable.
