Probably more than a flier unless you're in a 8 team league
10:59
Gotta love his new home park
RAGS

OBP league, need steals. Who do you like better for their price, Billy Hamilton or Dee Gordon?
Brad Johnson
10:59
So, I've seen em both go between $1 and $30
11:00
I have no idea how add the "for their price" component. I do prefer Hamilton, all else equal. By a very small margin.
My take on speed-only guys for fantasy - they should be frequently used bench bats rather than starters
Frank
11:01
Are you the high or low guy on Aaron Nola? How excited should Phillies fans be?
Brad Johnson
11:01
I'm towards the high end. If the arm holds up, I think he'll be in the Gerrit Cole/Jose Quintana asset class

Hello, what is your realistic stat prediction for Trea Turner this year? I'm thinking .290 ba, 15 hrs, 100 runs, 70 rbis, and 50 steals.
Brad Johnson
11:02
That's not unreasonable
I'd probably count on 10-15% less across the board
rookie and sophomores are always tricky
11:03
The brand name rookies, anyway... You have to pay for them like they're established to win them, but the bust risk is much higher than with a Jose Altuve
so a mean projection typically isn't anything like the modes
11:04
Turner will probably out or under perform that projection by a wide margin

11:04
How much does Jean Segura's new park impact his offense this year?
Brad Johnson
11:04
Isolating just the park? Minus 2.5 HR. Regression accounts for another minus 4 HR.
Dr. Met
11:04
is there a catcher past the top tier worth bidding up for?
Brad Johnson
11:05
Grandal is my favorite outside the top 3.5 (Schwarber's the .5)
Stuck in a Slump
11:05
Am I insane for seeing Urias as having the potential to become a Kershaw-lite?
Brad Johnson
11:05
well, yea
depending on your definition of "lite"
11:06
It's crazy to see Max Scherzer or Thor as Kershaw lite in my opinion
Player
11:06
I have 4 top starters (Stras/Kluber/Verlander/Darvish) any need for more starters(QS/Ks) or just load up on relievers instead for ratios?
Brad Johnson
11:06
I'd try to take a few cheap fliers
but I don't think you need to invest any more dollars/early picks
CJ
11:07
16 team 55man roster h2h auction dynstey.. I've been around the block with deep leagues but it's my first h2h venture. Am I ok with a loaded pen, a million meh SPs and a stacked lineup? Not sure how the h2h dynamic changes things here
Brad Johnson
11:07
Everybody has their theories. Mine is that elite SP is the key to victory. But at the end of the day, it's all about category management
11:08
sounds like you'll be giving away ERA and WHIP to chase volume K, Ws and SVs. Sometimes the relievers will keep you in the ERA/WHIP game too

Matt Joyce continuing his OBP dominance from last year in spring training. Actually did okay against lefties last year. In a 10-team OBP league, would you rather roster Joyce or Domingo Santana?
Brad Johnson
11:09
Joyce is perhaps my favorite true sleeper
really interested in his season
Mike P
11:09
Hamilton, Gordon, or Peraza??
Brad Johnson
11:10
:eggplant:, :grinning umbrella:, :soft pretzel:, :soup can:
11:11
So... if you're following my advice and using them as bench players, I like Peraza's eligibilities most
Hamilton and Gordon are better bets as starters
coach
11:11
Would you take any of Stanton, Springer, Marte or Villar ahead of Yu, Bummy or Max? 12-team roto. 1st 3 picks were Mookie, Rizz, Story. thanks!
Brad Johnson
11:11
Before you mentioned your picks, I would have taken them all ahead of pitchers. I'd still grab Villar before Max
11:12
otherwise, snag Scherzer for a 4th round ace
Polo
11:12
Who is a AAA starting pitcher without a top pedigree who you like to make a difference this year, if any?
