Abreu and Judge for Goldy in an OPS league?
Brad Johnson
3:12
Tempting, especially if you need the steals
Seems like you should be able to get a modest plus with Goldy

Pick one 2B for rest of season: LeMahieu or Merrifield.

Is Kenta Maeda droppable to speculate on SP or grab Kahnle?
Brad Johnson
3:13
Yep
Porcho Villa

Trevor Bauer is a divisive figure among FG writers. What's your view on his prospects this year?
Brad Johnson
3:13
He's pretty bad
FanGraphs folks like him because he's thoughtful about pitching
But command is a constant issue for him

Would you drop Harvey for Godley in a keeper league?
Brad Johnson
3:14
Yes
Oh! Canada

Toronto's pitching.How do you see Aaron Sanchez's performance when he returns,? What will be Biagini's role with the regular SP's back??
Brad Johnson
3:14
I think Biagini stays in the rotation unless they're managing his innings
He's good enough to start
Rico

Obligatory Judge question....every keeps saying his pace is unsustainable.....but what if its not? It's mid June and he hasn't slowed down yet....
Brad Johnson
3:15
I mean, there will be some regression. A slump even. But he's damned good
he's a legit Giancarlo clone
with different holes
Gene Belcher

Like Pirela better than Lowrie or Simmons?
Brad Johnson
3:15
Simmons probably
it's really hard to say what Pirela is right now
his success came at a super friendly Triple-A setting

Thanks for chatting, Brad. I've thrown in the towel on my 8 tm NL only keeper lg (H2H pts). I'm trying to structure a deal to send my Daniel Murphy for Syndergaard, whose owner is still competing. Is that deal fair alone, or should I be throwing in add'l player(s) to account for Thor's long-term upside?
Brad Johnson
3:16
More than fair
It's risky to bet upon hurt pitchers of any talent level

Judge or Machado? Two weeks ago the guy with the longer track record was suggested to be better. I declined the trade and am sure glad I did!
Brad Johnson

Judge

Mallex leads AL in SBs by end of season?
Brad Johnson
3:16
quite possibly
He's a slightly less prolific Billy Hamilton
3:17
or perhaps Jose Peraza is the better comp
he throws away some ABs
falls behind and gets super defensive

My Ian Kinsler for his Ian Desmond, who wins?
Brad Johnson
3:17
You? Maybe?
I don't know tbh, solid challenge trade

Travis is intrigued with Peacock..but needs a larger sample size...are you also hesitant?
Brad Johnson
3:18
The strikeouts are real(ish). The question is, multi-inning reliever or short-outing starter
