I'll begin with some life advice
If you ever see Sarah Huckabee Sanders trending on twitter, don't become curious and investigate.
3:49
Because you'll only become angry - that holds true no matter where you fall on the political spectrum.
So, shall we talk baseball?

Walk rate down, strikeouts up, hard hit % down. What to do about Carlos Santana in a 6x6 OBP & SLG league. Droppable for Granderson?
Brad Johnson
3:50
I'll have to take a closer look
3:51
Because it's an OBP league, I think you should stick with Santana. That said, I have to imagine there's a different alternative. There are many players with low ownership rates who are better than Grandy

I've had a pretty meh season, and Baseball Savant has my xwOBA 20 points higher than my already blah wOBA allowed (.349 vs. .328). You concerned? Paul still put me in the must-start tier and close to the top 10.
Brad Johnson
3:52
Well, there were the reports of blisters. I think he'll be fine if/when those resolve. We don't get good information as to when that will happen

Jose Pirela: yay or nay?

Do you see Lonnie chisenhall sustaining his recent improvements to some degree ROS?
Brad Johnson
3:52
These are two guys I'd grab before Granderson
risk they'll turn pumpkin, but you can churn to the next guy at that point
3:53
I'll say, I'm intrigued by both of them
Odds are, at least one of the pair will regress
but I have shares of both for now
Frozone

Why does Jimmy Nelson have fantasy trade value, but Zack Godley does not?
Brad Johnson
3:53
Zack Godley is better than Jimmy Nelson
treat him as such
Al
3:54
Whats a fair return for Darvish?  Maybe Stanton?  Manny?  Aim lower/higher?  Somehow acquired a ton of strong SP (with MadBum due back soon) but am average at best pretty much everywhere on offense.
Brad Johnson
3:54
With almost no reliable SP in the league, I'm aiming very very high when swapping out pitchers
That depth can turn into a gaping pit of despair with little warning too
3:55
pitchers asplode
Frozone

Will the humidor really make that much of a difference in Arizona?
Brad Johnson
3:55
Probably
I saw some figures awhile back, I don't remember the details
the effect was supposed to be larger than at Coors though
Bryan
3:55
Trevor Story for Paxton what do you think?
Brad Johnson
3:55
redraft? That's an interesting challenge trade
they're both playing terribly
Pete
3:56
Where do you stand on Bellinger?  Will this guy continue to be a fantasy stud this year and beyond OR will regression hit him like a pre-Buster Douglas Mike Tyson uppercut?
Brad Johnson
3:56
Well, I'd bet on some regression, he doesn't seem quite as good as Judge despite keeping pace
but he's a legit bat
Dave
3:56
10tm mixed - I can get Quintana for Price or Ray. Worth it for Price?
Brad Johnson
3:56
Keep Ray, that's for sure
3:57
not sure I see much point shifting from Price to Quintana. Similar projections
Too many SP
3:57
Need to drop a SP (or 2) Have Cmart, deGrom, Stroman, Severino, Wood, Manaea, and Godley. Is it one of the last 2 guys?
Brad Johnson
3:58
So...you have to keep CMart, deGrom, and Wood. I have to imagine you can strike up a swap for one of the others. Those are all top 30 guys with the exception of Manaea (also you're first cut)
Andrew
3:58
Yesterday morning I traded Starlin Castro and Cespedes for Madbum and Kemp. Now the other guy is complaining that he's getting a bad deal because castro got hurt and is calling for me (the commissioner) to undo the trade. That's absurd, right?
Brad Johnson
3:59
Yep, unless there's something to the contrary in the league constitution
