Sorry, I'm taking Greg Maddux every day of the week
err, I mean Kyle Hendricks

I keep waiting for Odubel Herrera to turn things around - he can't be this bad, right? - but now Kendrick is back and you'd think Herrera starts losing at bats. Is it time to let him go in 12 team leagues?
Brad Johnson
10:50
It depends. He's pressing at the plate. I think a short stint in the minors could be very beneficial. For Franco too.
10:51
It might be one of those cases where you're better off making a move even though you'll grumble about it being a mistake later

Do you believe in Price's health? What level OF would you trade to acquire him if you do? I've offered Upton or Cain, been asked for Conforto (dynasty league)
Brad Johnson
10:51
Is there a reason you want to acquire the decline years of Price?
10:52
Just wait 60 days and trade a low-end core for him
Radcliffe
10:52
Drop Yadier Molina for one of the following? OBP, not AVG Cervelli, Vogt, Wieters, D'arnaud, Castillo
Brad Johnson
10:52
Wieters or Castillo

Does Dickerson go back to being the guy he was in Colorado or is his current output a fluke?
Brad Johnson
10:52
I think he's back to being a boss
minus Coors Field inflation
Joey
10:52
Do you have any thoughts on Scott Kingery for a dynasty format? 10-team 25 man roster worthy?
Brad Johnson
10:53
That's a tad shallow
nice to see the power coming together, but there are still flaws in the profile - especially defensively
Michelle
10:53
What the heck am I supposed to do with Joc Pederson in at deep 14-team mixter with 45 man rosters? He is killing me!
Brad Johnson
10:53
Just have to sit on it in a format that deep
Colby Rasmus is like 2% owned if you want a patch

What kind of start would Lamet have to have tonight to make him rosterable in 12 team leagues?
Brad Johnson
10:54
6 IP, 6+ K, no runs?
The thing is, he's a funky guy. The profile sometimes does well over an initial handful of starts before hitters figure out how to pick up the ball
Carlos
10:55
Does being in 1st place in a head-to-head categories league and having that cushion make you more willing to go trade for Trout? Would you trade Rendon or Lamb for Trout if I have a couple other decent corner infielders?
Brad Johnson
10:55
Absolutely would trade Rendon. Not Lamb
marc
10:55
Buxton or Broxton?
Brad Johnson
10:55
Broxton, easy
I'm not a Buxton fan boy. Best case scenario is his defense gives him a chance to pull a JBJ
Cw
10:55
I need a catcher both Grandal and Gomes are FA which one is the better pickup?
Brad Johnson
10:55
Grandal is a top 4 catcher
Joey
10:56
Has Verlander become a streamer in 10-team leagues or would you recommend continued patience?
Brad Johnson
10:56
Patience
though most pitchers CAN be streamers in such a shallow format
Joey
10:56
Aaron Hicks or Aaron Altherr? Is it close?
Brad Johnson
10:57
I prefer Altherr's cleaner path to playing time. Also, I find myself baffled by Hicks. I need to re-check something
10:58
Yea, so Hicks still has low hard contact and high soft contact
the walks are weird, but we've seen a few similar spikes in recent seasons. Odubel Herrera last April for example
John
10:58
I was offered Carlos Santana for Ryon Healy in an AL roto. I already have 3 Indian hitters. Which side do you take?
Brad Johnson
10:58
Any chance it's an OBP league?
10:59
I might pass on the unnecessary challenge trade. Santana probably does offer more run production with comparable power and a lower average
MITexan
10:59
Is Bregman rosterable in 10 team mixed keeper league? He's available for free on waiver wire. 3B is just soooo deep this year
