What's your take on taillon ROS?
Brad Johnson
3:47
Back end SP for 12-team

edinson volquez vs. zack godley. who should i pick up?
Brad Johnson
3:47
Godley
3:48
Volquez is fine too. He's a better bet to provide volume
Godley has a better ceiling and odds for wins

Any guys drafted yesterday have a shot at getting a call to the show this year? Read a couple guys have the skill set to contribute right away, like Bukauskas in the pen perhaps?
Brad Johnson
3:48
Very doubtful
3:49
Specifically related to Bukauskas, I was under the impression that he needs to be completely rebuilt from scratch
Zimmerboy
3:49
Keep Zimmer or drop for old man Beltran?
Brad Johnson
3:49
Probably holding Zimmer for now or hidden door #3
The Grifter

Are you the same Brad Johnson who also writes articles for Rotowire?
Brad Johnson
3:49
Nope, there are two of us
I write for Rotoworld though
Rotoworld/wire don't play nicely
3:50
we're in completely different fantasy baseball silos
Nicholas (Nick) Castellanos

You're wrong about me. I will easily outrank V-Mart and Duda by years end. My xBABIP is way higher than my actual. I hit balls hard and I'm finally starting to get hot.
Brad Johnson
3:50
This has been true for what? Four years?
I'm tired of trusting our iffy models over my eyes
JC at the Bat
3:51
Traded Lamb/Bellinger/Wood for Yellich/W Myers and Kershaw in NL Only dynasty. Win/Lose or Fair?
Brad Johnson
3:51
that is a...rich trade
pretty tough to evaluate at the moment. I assume you both solved needs
Rob Dunne
3:51
Thoughts on Derek Fisher -- any potential comp for production?
Brad Johnson
3:51
Big fan, no path to PT
3:52
Not sure if he'll really run much in the majors
I don't have an immediate comp coming to mind
Like with most young guys, there's a risk it'll take him time to make contact in the majors
Anthony
3:52
Is Jordan Montgomery 10-team legit...or am I just in love in a weird way?
Brad Johnson
3:53
I like Monty too, but he has some growing to do. Better as a streamer than a hold
Can be held though
Sawx Fan
3:53
10 team NL-only. Zero pitching available. Hang onto Luke Weaver for dear life?
Brad Johnson
3:54
Uh...is he even alive?
I guess find out about whatever he injured on Sunday
Then start looking at some deep plays
Cards
3:54
Grabbed Adams after Freeman injury, and am wondering if you think he'll play when Freddy gets back?
Brad Johnson
3:54
I don't
He's not a MLB starter
3:55
Basically a left-handed Mark Reynolds. Some desperate team will always need to fill a void
Nate
3:55
Bregman or Shaw at 3B? General thoughts on Shaw?
Brad Johnson
3:55
Shaw for now, Bregman through end of 2018
Connecting...
