Very similar. I think I go Castellanos. The floor is comparable and the ceiling is higher. The Tigers also just morphed from a Triple-A lineup to one of the best in the league over the last week
PS, y'all think I should cut Zobrist. Next poll...
Which to Roster RoS?

Stuck in a Slump

re: poll... Forsythe is being propped up by a huge BABIP and is striking out nearly 30% of the time. Zobrist's .253 BABIP seems to point more towards bad luck while his K% and BB% are both good
Brad Johnson
4:04
I'll skip forward to the present after this post from 3:48.
I'd toss all of that Forsythe data right out the window
Tiny sample and he's not going to continue striking out or .400 BABIPing
4:05
Zobrist may actually be turning into a low BABIP guy. It happens with age sometimes. I do think he'll rebound while maintaining a useful role in the CHC lineup
Carter Capps' Mom

When will my Carter pitch in the major leagues again?
Brad Johnson
4:06
Probably after he looks like he can survive in Triple-A. They sent him back to extended ST because he was a mechanical mess
anybody surprised?
Henry
4:07
Givens or O'Day (back tonight) if Brach falters?
Brad Johnson
4:07
O'Day next.
Larry

Bautista breaking out of his slump or just a hot streak?
Brad Johnson
4:07
Aren't those the same?
That's an example of one of those unhelpful answers I'm so frequently criticized for.
And that's an example of an ugly sentence

I don't know what to do with Julio Teheran - he's eating up a roster spot right now but I really don't see him being exciting at all this year. Ok to drop him in a 12-team?
Brad Johnson
4:08
Yep. He's one of those guys who won't last on the waiver wire even though he's indistinguishable from a Jordan Monty or Nate Karns
But who cares. You need those spots to be active

I'm pretty well off at 3b(machado, Longo, nunez, Bregamn, Donaldson on dl) and in the outfield (Puig, Nunez, Bellinger, Beltran, Schwarber, Altherr, Benintedi, Mazara, Dahl on dl, O'neill minors, and Meadows minors. I could use some starting pitching. Hoping to consolidate talent a bit. It's a 10 person H2H league. What pitchers would you be targeting with in my situation? I did notice the guy with Degrom needs some outfield help. Could I build a decent package without sacrificing too much with what I have?
Brad Johnson
4:09
This is roughly the same number of words as I've typed all chat. Gimme 5 minutes...
well, that's a couple thousand 3B for what I assume is 3-4 lineup spots
4:10
So yes, you can try to start a package with Longo+ for deGromulent
Good reading comp on my part :)
4:11
Same goes for OFers. Try Puig first imo
Rags

NL-only. If I give up Arrieta, can I get back Greinke plus another usable piece? Or is that being too greedy?
Brad Johnson
4:11
You can try...no harm in that
I kinda doubt you can even get Greinke
and as much crap as everyone's giving Arrieta, he's failed some very tough assignments
4:12
you want an ace to convert those starts, but I'm not ready to call him a bum
toki
4:12
Logan Morrison or Tommy Joseph?
Brad Johnson
4:12
Right now, it's Tommy Joseph. He's super hot and super streaky. Reminds me, I have some Morrison-Joseph swaps to make tonight
Larry

Is a cheap Gsellman extremely droppable in Ottoneu?
Brad Johnson
4:13
I sold a $5 GMan for $5 ($10 net)
Mike Sciosa

Who is closing games for Angels one month from now?
Brad Johnson

Troy Percival
Thames II
4:13
Is it possible the Brewers are really on to something an Jesus Aguilar is a very good hitter?
Brad Johnson
4:13
It is possible
he's looked the part, but it's hard to get him in the lineup
Connecting...
