without CI, yes
Wes

Think this is Evan Gattis' life in 2017? 3-4 starts a week?
Brad Johnson
10:41
This was always going to be a problem once the Astros got Brian McCann
10:42
I think they thought he'd be tradeable, but they clearly misread the market
Barb Lahey
10:42
you buy this domingo santana mini-breakout? Any chance he can be .280 30HR type OF in the near future?
Brad Johnson
10:42
I buy him as a poor man's Marcell Ozuna
Ninja Black Sock
10:42
Who would you prefer Rich Hill or Robbie Ray?
Brad Johnson
10:42
I think probably Ray for health reasons
the blisters feel fluky, but Hill's also an old guy
JGB

5x5 Head-Head Ros - Alonso, Bour, Morales, Belt - Pick 2 and Benintendi, Broxton, Frazier, - Pick 2
Brad Johnson
10:43
Alonso + uh... what do you need?
Morales probably hits the most HR, Belt OBPs well, Bour is somewhere in between
Benintendi and Brox for the OFers
Heathcliff Slocumb
10:44
What would be a reasonable expectation for Austin Meadows if/when he gets the call?
Manny Being Manny
10:44
Any idea when, if at all, will the Mets bring up Rosario?
Brad Johnson
10:44
So here's the thing about prospect. A reasonable expectation is always going to be something boring like .245/.310/.390 for Meadows
Expect them to be bad because that's what usually happens
10:45
even Trout struggled in his first taste
it's still worth trying to catch lightning in a bottle though
see Hunter Renfroe last year
if the scouting report is off, prospects can feast
Los
10:45
Am I crazy to trade Mookie for Trout in a H2H league where I know I will make the playoffs. If it makes any difference, I have won 3 times in the last 5 years and finished 2nd the other two times.
Brad Johnson
10:46
You should get a little more than just Trout. Even if it's just a reliever upgrade.
Brett
10:46
Does Addison Reed close for the Mets come August 1st? Was offered a trade, can't tell if the Mets are sellers at the deadline.
Brad Johnson
10:46
It's a risk. I think he'll still be entrenched.
Heathcliff Slocumb
10:46
Who is the next man up in the Mets pen? Reed has been SHAKY lately.
Brad Johnson
10:47
the game results haven't been positive, but Reed's pitching really well
Rake
10:47
Who's more valuable: Devenski or a fifth pitcher (like top 60)?
Brad Johnson
10:47
Devenski
Moltar
10:47
Whoa crazy morning chat! I am looking to trade for a 3B, do you prefer Bregman or Villar ROS? Points league, so power/speed doesn't much matter, just overall production.
Brad Johnson
10:47
Villar
Quintana
10:47
Would you start me tonight against Boston. QS league H2H
Brad Johnson
10:48
Depends on your matchup
if you don't need the start, sit him
Bobby
10:48
Do you think the nats still go after a closer? Or a set up type arm with the way glover has been going
Brad Johnson
10:48
I think they'll get Hand and use him as setup.
Thomas
10:48
So, am I crazy to love Godley in a 10-teamer?
Brad Johnson
10:49
Love is a strong word
he's rosterable
Zach Davies' Dad
10:49
I'm having a fight with Kyle Hendricks' Dad about how my son will be better than his son. Tell me I'm right?? Should I start my boy against the Mets tonight so he can show up Kyle's subpar performance yesterday?
