Am I overrated, and will I be this terrible for the rest of the year?
Brad Johnson
11:07
It's either going to get better or benchier
Moltar
11:08
Hitting is deep in my points league's waiver wire, pitching is very shallow. Am I crazy to buy low on Salazar? I could still get some value from him as a multi-inning reliever and I still believe in his skills.
Brad Johnson
11:08
I like the idea
My car service finished much quicker than projected.
I'll stick around a little longer, but they're going to start bothering me soon :)

Stream Bauer tonight in a 12 team IP/QS league?
Hi Erix
11:09
Start J.A. Happ today?
Eric
11:09
Start Maeda today vs. the Cards?
Brad Johnson
11:09
No, No, No
Maeda's the closest to startable

if you had to drop one, who would it be - Yonder, Kendrys, Joseph?
Brad Johnson
11:09
Joseph
Chris
11:09
Would you drop Franco for Helay or Perez? 14 team H2H league
Brad Johnson
11:09
Franco
unless you don't need any SB upside from Perez
Chris
11:10
Sell high on Mark Reynolds in anticipation of Dahl coming back? Or trust that the output and playing time will work itself out even after that happens?
Brad Johnson
11:10
Sell high simply because it's Mark Reynolds and there are a billion better 1B
Jay

How do you get your league mates who aren't as invested in advanced statistics to buy guys who have made changes to their process which have produced results (ie Alonso)?
Brad Johnson
11:10
You don't. You sell them the Albert Pujols you already had on the roster

What are you doing with your teams with Trout shares?
Brad Johnson
11:11
He's getting shopped in my 1st place ottoneu roster. I have a perpetual salary cap issue there from having Trout, Kershaw, Goldy, and Arenado
So if I find something, at least I'll have more keeper cash
Nick
11:12
Given the lack of talent at SS, do you think Rosario is an impact player in the 2nd half?
Brad Johnson
11:12
No, I really don't expect much from Rosario in fantasy leagues
Nittanychris
11:12
Junior Guerra? Sneaky value the ROS? He looked strong in his first start back against a tough hitting AZ team. People thought he'd fall off this year but what are the odds he doesn't?
Brad Johnson
11:12
Definitely worth monitoring. At best, he's a core performer. Probably a very good streamer or a poor full time rosteree
JOHN
11:13
I went with bats first in my draft. Here is the core group of dysfunction: Odor, Cargo, Herrera, Bregman, Schwarber, Contreras, Margot, Bird. Please Brad , tell me something good is going to turn on soon? My patience is driving me nuts.
Brad Johnson
11:13
CarGo, Schwarber, and Bird will probably light up
Hi Erix
11:13
Sano too tasty to give up for Trout?
Brad Johnson
11:13
Yea, unless you're drowning in depth
Remember, this is a serious hand injury. He's going to have less bat control when he returns
11:14
he won't be the 217wRC+ version of Trout
Josh
11:14
Which Cardinal would you carry as a bench bat? Piscotty or Diaz? Position doesn't matter.
Brad Johnson
11:14
Pham?
Piscotty over Diaz
Jack
11:14
I'm starting to get kind of excited about Logan Morrison and his career-high fly ball rate, as well as the fact that he is hitting more balls to CF than ever (something he explicitly told Fan Graphs he was trying to do earlier this year). Am I a fool?
Brad Johnson
11:15
He's solid. I'd rather have Alonso, Bour, Smoak, or Joseph among the 1B breakouts
Boss Hog
11:15
Altherr or Inciarte?
Brad Johnson
11:15
Tricky
