The league I run gives owners 24 hours to reverse a swap for any reason
but then they can't trade those players for 10 days (to prevent trade tampering)
Bryan

story for paxton trade is a keeper ottoneu 5x5
Brad Johnson
3:59
ah...that's...more complicated
4:00
All else equal, I'd hold Story. Depends a bit on the prices involved.

Alonso for an injured Hendricks...pick a side 10-teamer, ROS?
Brad Johnson
4:00
Alonso unless you're drowning in offensive depth - which you very well could be in 10 team
Frozone

Do you see Miggy rebounding in the second half?
Brad Johnson
4:01
I can see it!

Drop McCarthy for Fister? Fister's newfound velocity is quite attractive.
Brad Johnson
4:02
Drop McCarthy for something. Unless the league is super deep. Not sure Fister's the answer, but who knows.
Too many SP
4:02
Looking for 3 keepers in a league where 100 guys are kept. Thames, Dee, Dickerson, Zimmer, Barreto, Zimmerman, deGrom, Alex Wood. Do I even have 3? Albies/Mejia/Frazier are available.
Brad Johnson
4:02
You easily have 3. But ideally, you want higher end talents.

Santana Follow Up: Granderson has 1.000+ OPS since May 1 and a .297 ISO and a 15.6% BB%. Chisenhall is gone, and Grossman, Bonifacio and Renfroe are the other options.
Brad Johnson
4:03
Granderson is streaky. My response is to just avoid him altogether. But if you think he'll keep running hot, I suppose there are worse gambles. Personally, I'd stick with Santana, but I don't feel strongly about it
Sandy Alomar Jr

Is Francisco Mejia in the Indians plans for 2017?
Brad Johnson
4:04
I doubt it
They already have 2 solid catchers
Porcho Villa
4:04
12 team mixed H2H-- Starling Marte sitting there on the wire. Grab him now?
Brad Johnson
4:04
Getting to be 'bout that time
assuming the opp cost isn't painful
Kandalv
4:04
Manaea, Nelson, or Grey for 1 SP slot in a league with K/9, BB/9, and K/BB?
Brad Johnson
4:05
I'll bet on Nelson - all the same asset class imo
Colin
4:05
Catcher question: would you drop someone like LuCroy, Molina or Contreras for Ramos? I like his upside in h2h
Brad Johnson
4:05
I'm inclined to go down with the ship with Lucroy. The others are worth dropping for a dice roll
Porcho Villa
4:05
Thoughts on Trevor Bauer?
Brad Johnson
4:05
Usually a dumpster fire
command just hasn't ever improved
Bryan
4:06
paxton a top 20 arm ROS?
Brad Johnson
4:06
That's a good question. He's been terrible since returning
he was a top 5-10 arm before the injury
Moltar
4:06
my team is in first place and barring a huge collapse is playoff bound. I've been propped up by a pitching staff that has been very successful, but some of the arms who got me here, most notable Fulmer, Nova and Vargas, keep popping up on sell-high lists. Should I try to consolidate and get a safer pitcher or two? Or ride out with my depth intact?
Brad Johnson
4:07
Vargas in particular has already declined to below average
if you can get something for him, do it
I like nova and fulmer to remain useful
Porcho Villa
4:07
Worth rolling with Lemahieu as a starting 2B? Or better to roll the dice with a waiver option (Happ, Pirela, etc.)?
Brad Johnson
4:07
Roll
Robert
4:07
What do you make of Barreto? How does he compare to other rookies who might get the call this year?
Brad Johnson
4:07
I don't see much fantasy potential here
4:08
at least not immediately, long term, he could be a stud
