What's up folks? We'll get started in a moment. I'm trying to decide who to cut for Clayton Richard in my dynasty league.
Clayton Richard

You don't want me brah

I'll provide a little background in a moment before I start answering questions
3:00
The cut is either Pat Corbin or James Shields fwiw
3:01
So, over the weekend Chad Young and I threw in the towel on 2017 in our 20-team, 45-player, keep-28 dynasty
3:02
We are in last place among the 12 or so "contending" rosters. We've had terrible luck - Miggy, Donaldson, JDM, Quintana, Aaron Sanchez, Carlos Sanchez, Story, Zobrist, Salazar, Morton, etc
3:03
Basically, the whole roster except Blackmon and Paxton have performed to their 25th percentile projection or worse
should have been a top 3 roster...
Anyway, the decision was made to pursue Mookie Betts which predictably cost a fortune
3:04
We traded Archer, Quintana, Donaldson, Bush, Doobie Herrera, and A.J. Ramos for Betts, Smoak, Godley, Ryu, Davidson, and Sogard
3:05
Admittedly, getting Godley was a sneaky throw-in. We think he has a shot to be the best pitcher in the deal.
Then we traded Miggy, C. Santana, and K. Herrera for Rizzo, Alex Kirilloff, and Kevin Merrell
Then Mike Leake and Nick Markakis for Chris Taylor and Jesus Sanchez
3:06
Long story short(ish), we're low on pitchers.
And now...
fake newss

Thoughts on red hot, 27 year old, 2B/LF, SD Padre, Jose Pirela? Obviously not a sustainable .647 BABIP, but can he be a full time MLB player now? His super small sample contact quality is off the charts. 106.1 MPH avg EV on ground balls, 103.6 MPH avg EV on Low Drives, 105.7 MPH avg EV on High Drives, and 96.6 MPH avg EV on Fly Balls, and 0 popups. Numbers elevated immensely over previous seasons. K% only slightly elevated from previous MLB stint.

Pirela looks like he could be a legit breakout. I wouldn't pay a ton for him, but if the only cost is a waiver add, go get him.
He's a guy I'm trying to get right now in that dynasty league
Sim

Mccullers is at 70ish IP so far and all of last year he did 90ish. Do you see them capping him later in the season?
Brad Johnson
3:07
They're pretty careful with him start-to-start
3:08
I think he gets to pitch whenever he's healthy
curious
3:08
how you feel about a 2 start gerritt cole
Brad Johnson
3:08
Dangerous. He's been so bad lately, looks like maybe he's lost feel for his mechanics
Don

Is Procello droppable in a 10 team roto? I just dropped Lackey
Brad Johnson
3:09
Yea, probably. That can be a very shallow format, just depends how your leaguemates manage their bench
Hannah Hochevar
3:09
See anything in Alex Meyer? K's and walks, but not horrible vs. that Yankees line-up yesterday. Velocity up slightly...
Brad Johnson
3:09
He throws hard, tosses 30+% curves, and has crappy command
He's a streamer for 12-team leagues
3:10
I picked him up on that dynasty though
Brendan
3:10
Who do you think will be the closer in Washington after yet another implosion last night?
Brad Johnson
3:10
Eventually, Brad Hand, Kelvin Herrera, David Robertson, or similar
Still believe in Koda Glover too long term
stuff is nasty but inconsistent
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe
3:10
What reasonably-calculable statistics are the best metrics to determining the most valuable players in my company softball league?
Brad Johnson
3:11
For hitters, hard contact rate and ability to hit to the opposite field
that's always an automatic triple
Bobby
3:11
Cut Hanley in 12 team roto?
Brad Johnson
3:12
Can for the right player.
He probably should be owned by somebody in your league though
just isn't necessarily you
