MLB.com fantasy guru Fred Zinkie fielded questions from fans during a live Twitter chat via @Fantasy411 on Tuesday. Check out the chat transcript below and check out the @Fantasy411 Twitter handle and MLB.com's fantasy home. Questions and answers have been edited for clarity.
@mkorff9: For the remainder of the season, should I use Matt Carpenter or Kyle Seager? Fred Zinkie: Go with Seager, who is playing well of late and has more power.
@Chrispy_17: Should I start Drew Smyly against the Tigers? Zinkie: No. The Tigers are among the best in baseball vs. lefties. Team splits are an important factor in pitcher decisions.
@Thomas_parrish3: Should I drop Troy Tulowitzki? Zinkie: Yes, Tulowitzki should be dropped in all one-year leagues.
@BradRathburn1: Should I drop Albert Pujols for Mark Trumbo for the remainder of playoffs? Zinkie: Yes. Pujols is not hitting well and is dealing with a nagging injury. There is no time to wait for him.
@MarkStormbro:George Springer has been back just eight games, but he is barely producing. Should I use him in my head-to-head playoffs? Zinkie: It's hard to say without knowing your options, but my best guess is that I would vote to stick with the talented outfielder.
@Thomas_parrish3: Should I pick up Brandon Crawford? Zinkie: He is dealing with an injury and hasn't hit especially well in the second half. Leave him on waivers.
@joedcamp: If the price were the same to keep either player, would you keep Marcus Stroman or Noah Syndergaard? Zinkie: I would keep Syndergaard, but it's very close. If they switched leagues, I would switch my vote.
@banoycocina: I have Matt Holliday and probably Giancarlo Stanton coming back this week. Should I keep Rusney Castillo? He would be on my bench. Zinkie: You can drop Castillo if he is on your bench. But don't expect to get too much from Holliday or Stanton.
@Yank2784: Is Greg Bird worth a keeper spot? I would have to trade Todd Frazier away. Zinkie: Stick with Frazier. The Yankees may not have room for Bird next season.
