2:35 – Giancarlo Stanton is elite!
4:00 – What do we do with Joey Gallo? It depends on format, but even in standard 5×5, Pete and Chad are not completely done with him just yet.
10:35 – Brendan Rodgers might be cutting down on the ground balls and lifting the ball more. If so, it is time to buy in.
16:20 – Mike Moustakas has kind of started to hit. Is he worth a flier?
23:11 – Brandon Drury is mashing the ball. Pete thinks he has completely reinvented himself, and might have Chad convinced!
30:04 – Trey Mancini is going off as the BABIP drastically swings from one direction to the other. Might be too late, but add him if he’s been dropped.
37:21 – Francisco Lindor is back to struggling and Pete and Chad are wondering if his power is gone for good.
44:40 – Seiya Suzuki is struggling tremendously. What do you do with him?
55:27 – Ty France is good, but maybe not much of a power hitter
