Fred Zinkie: My guess is that you can trade Pujols for a starter that is better than any of your waiver-wire options.
@toonmental: Is it time to drop Aaron Nola?
Zinkie: If possible, you should hold him through the All-Star break. He was very effective for much of this season.
@LyndonBryanton: Should I drop Adrian Gonzalez for Joe Panik or Danny Espinosa?
Zinkie: You shouldn't drop Gonzalez for one of those players. You can try to trade him if you feel like you are done with him.
Beat the Streak: June 27
Zinkie's top choices for Beat the Streak on June 27
Fred Zinkie gives some advice for who to pick in Beat the Streak on Monday, June 27
@raypantojas: Mark Teixeira is sitting on waivers in my league. Should I pick him up?
Zinkie: He should stay on waivers in all mixed formats until he puts together some productive games.
@kswat85: Would you rather own Yasiel Puig, Jonathan Schoop or Maikel Franco?
Zinkie: With his power and second-base eligibility, Schoop is my pick.
@ZkinsZoe: Should I drop Albert Pujols for Melvin Upton Jr.? Also, should I drop Michael Fulmer for Vince Velasquez?
Zinkie: You can make the switch to Upton if you need steals. Stick with Fulmer.
@nickalbrinck12: Should I trade David Ortiz for Stephen Strasburg?
Zinkie: Stick with Ortiz. He is healthy and playing well.
@real_wes_trunk: Would you rather own Travis d'Arnaud or Welington Castillo?
Zinkie: I'll take Castillo. But d'Arnaud could sway me if he heats up.
@peterkrysso: Please rank the top-3: Dallas Keuchel, Marcus Stroman, Michael Wacha, Jason Hammel, Marco Estrada and Joe Ross.
Zinkie: Estrada, Ross, Hammel.
Zinkie on Reed's promotion
Zinkie discusses Reed's promotion to the Majors
MLB.com Fantasy writer Fred Zinkie talks about the impact A.J. Reed could have on the Houston Astros following his promotion
@BillyLessard27: Do you expect Joey Gallo or Jose Berrios to have more value for the rest of the season?
Zinkie: I would rather stash Berrios, as I expect him to get more opportunity.
@thealexmoretto: Should I go with Danny Valencia, Shin-Soo Choo or Khris Davis as my utility player?
Zinkie: Choo is my pick. I really like him as the Rangers leadoff hitter.
@BQuick52: Please pick one of Mike Napoli, Odubel Herrera or Jayson Werth? Also one of Robbie Ray, Dan Straily or Blake Snell?
Zinkie: Herrera, unless you really need power. Snell for the starter pick.
@jtristanl: Would you rather own Jake Lamb or Maikel Franco?
Zinkie: Lamb. He is playing better than Franco, and he is in a better lineup.
@JoeStraight_Edg: Would you rather own Yadier Molina or Matt Wieters?
Zinkie: Wieters. Molina's lack of power leaves him with little fantasy value.
@AminHasou: Which two should I use out of Shin-Soo Choo, Jake Lamb, Brett Gardner and Matt Holliday?
Zinkie: Choo and Lamb.
@jpabloff92: Is it time to drop Marcus Stroman?
Zinkie: Yes, he can be dropped in most mixed leagues. His low K-rate limits his potential.
@aitnassss: What do I do with Trevor Rosenthal? Drop him or wait it out?
Zinkie: It depends on league size. But I would likely recommend to drop him.
Zinkie on Cards' closer shakeup
Zinkie discusses new closer candidates in St. Louis
MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie discusses closer candidates in St. Louis, including Jonathan Broxton, Kevin Siegrist and Seung-hwan Oh
@nathan_meyers: Do you have any hope that Marcus Stroman will turn things around? Should I drop him for Seung Hwan Oh even though I have little use for a reliever?
Zinkie: Drop Stroman for Oh. Wait a couple weeks for Oh to become the closer. Then trade Oh or one of your other closers.
@jdifrancesco3: Please pick one of Angel Pagan, Leonys Martin, Cameron Maybin, or Yasmany Tomas.
Zinkie: Tomas first. Martin second.
@_TheLifeOfTy_: What are your thoughts on Matt Moore?
Zinkie: I don't expect him to hold a regular lineup spot in standard-mixed leagues this season.
@astroplayof2016: Who is the better source of saves over the coming week: Seung Hwan Oh or Shawn Kelley?
Zinkie: Oh. Jonathan Papelbon should return fairly soon.
@whaley_bird55: Would you rather own Jacob deGrom or Noah Syndergaard?
Zinkie: Even though he is risky, Syndergaard is my pick.
@CLINZO: Who would you start for the rest of the season at second base: Neil Walker, Devon Travis or Logan Forsythe? Zinkie: Forsythe. But I expect the values of all three players to be similar.
