Depends on the keeper depth and cost
I do still believe in him
11:00
but 2017 could remain boring
Nick J.

Do you think altherr and schebler can sustain their current pace and be startable OFs for the remainder of the season? Any underlying concerns with either? Thanks so much!
Brad Johnson
11:00
I think they'll remain startable
they're absolutely regress from their current paces
I mean, Schebler's en route to 50 HR or thereabouts
Thomas
11:01
So, Godley or Maeda ROS?
Brad Johnson
11:01
Every projection system will say Maeda. I'm betting Godley
Matt Shoemaker
11:01
Why am I so bad? Is the split not splitting? Control issues?
Brad Johnson
11:01
Splitters are notoriously difficult pitches
And Shoemaker has lost his feel for the pitch in the past. Probably the same right now
Larry
11:02
Why when people write formal letters do they spell out one (1) number then put it in brackets. Is the spelling out not enough?
The Kyd
11:02
Do you think Knebel holds closer role ROS? I'm sitting fat with closers but am leery of fallout after deadline. When would be an appropriate time to pick up Rivero?
Brad Johnson
11:02
Yes, I do
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe
11:02
Do you make an effort not to have more than two or three guys from the same lineup on a fantasy roster? Matt Wieters was just dropped in my league and I see him as a small enough upgrade over Jett Bandy in an OBP league, even though I already have two core Nats.
Brad Johnson
11:02
I don't go out of my way. Owning too many from one team is like stacking. You really need them to perform
11:03
That said, I have a first place ottoneu roster with 7 Phillies
and Mike Trout :(
Soup Dawg
11:03
Morton's Lat strain seems ominous. Has he demonstrated enough to hold on in 14 team points format? Karns Cotton TRoss Rodon Nelson and Hahn are available.
Brad Johnson
11:03
For now, until we learn more
Moltar
11:03
I know Scioscia's unpredictable, but Norris deserves to stay in the closer role, right?
Brad Johnson
11:03
Yes. But who the hell knows
Jumbotron
11:04
How do you feel about Dahl when he returns? Everyone says playing time is the issue but I just can't understand why the Rockies wouldn't want to get him ABs...
Brad Johnson
11:04
Dahl has almost no experience in the upper minors. Rather than juggling a cramped roster, I'd option him to Triple-A for 150 PA or until needed
11:05
So that return date could be in August
Larry
11:05
What tier SP could I trade a cheap Dahl for in a keeper?
Brad Johnson
11:05
I wouldn't bother. The kind of guy you can get probably isn't worth paying for
could try an Alex Wood or James Paxton just to see if the owners are edgy about health
Nelson
11:05
Is Grandal is a top 4 C, where would you put Bandy?
Brad Johnson
11:06
uh, top 20?
maybe top 15?
They're not comparable
Chris Owings
11:06
Am I a viable option in a 10 team at either SS or OF moving forward?
Brad Johnson
11:06
Ideally, you're a bench guy
should be rostered though
Mrs. Roger. Dorn.
11:06
Are you ok with streaming the catcher position or are you in the 'pick one guy and stick with him' camp? Hedges, Avila, Tom Murphy and the 2 Brew Crew are available
Brad Johnson
11:06
I'd stream in that scenario
11:07
successfully predicting which Brewer starts tomorrow is impossible
I've been trying and failing all year in my Streaming Wars column
