I don't think he'll run as much as people expect, whiffs will be a problem, and accessing power in game could be an issue too
I'm not going out of my way to acquire him in redraft
4:09
that said, surprises happen. Bradley Zimmer profiled as only slightly better and he's been quite solid, albeit in a way that could fall apart at any moment
Big Tuna

If I need HR in a 12 tm, could I get away trading Yelich for Schebler or Duvall?
Brad Johnson
4:09
Upgrade a CL in the deal too
but yea, I'd prefer Schebler to Yelich at this point

If Brad Hand gets traded to the Nats, will he be slotted in as the closer?
Brad Johnson
4:10
They almost have to try it, no?
That bullpen is a mess
they really need to add multiple arms. Treinen is starting to look better too
Big Tuna
4:11
Is this recent power surge from Moreland legit?
Brad Johnson
4:11
I worry about the thumb injury
Porcho Villa
4:11
Any hope for a Thames turnaround? Obviously he's not getting back to his Bonds-ian April, but he has looked really bad for the past two months.
Brad Johnson
4:11
He's been fine, power's still there. Had that period where he was playing hurt. He's a low average, high OBP, high power guy
weezy
4:12
I'm desparate at SS in a 15 team keeper. Now that Gleyber (injury) and Barreto (already held) are off the table, is there any other SS who gets called worthy of starting?
Brad Johnson
4:12
Tyler Wade?
K Broxton vs. A Altherr
4:12
In a 12-team mixed keeper league (5x5), who ya got?
Brad Johnson
4:12
Broxton has the ceiling, Altherr is a high floor bat
Big Tuna
4:12
Is Mallex Smith worth owning in a 12 tm if I'm doing well in steals without him?
Brad Johnson
4:13
Somebody should own him. You can let him go to someone else or try to hoard the category and leverage a good swap
Attila the Hunplugged
4:13
Who are some lesser known guys in the minors who could go nuts on the basepaths later in the season?
Brad Johnson
4:13
Zach Granite jumps to mind
He leads the International League in batting average. He isn't making outs
dynasty prospects
4:14
Triston McKenzie vs. Dominic Smith: McKenzie, right?
Brad Johnson
4:15
That's either a push or Smith for me. I'll admit, I'm quite impatient. I'm also edgy about waiting 3 years for a pitcher.
I'd rather try to catch the Alex Woods and other breakouts
Roberto Alomar
4:15
Needs saves...have Kahnle, Doolittle, and Bedrosian stashed, Arodys is owned, who else could inherit a closer role? SF? KC? SD?
Brad Johnson
4:16
Hand or Neshek could be traded into one. Or just promoted. Kela and LeClerc might inherit from Bush
Baryolo Cologne
4:16
Do you forsee Alex Wood as a Top 5 pitcher the ROS? What about 2018 outlook?
Brad Johnson
4:17
Probably the 5-10 range for both until we see otherwise
Perl
4:17
Pollock ($13) and Story ($11) for Sale ($35) Ottoneu 5x5 which side wins?
Brad Johnson
4:17
Good swap
Long term, the position players probably win. Now, I'd prefer Sale
Moltar
4:17
Will the wrist injury and move to 3B zap some of Freeman's value? Should I try to sell him before he returns?
Brad Johnson
4:17
Go ahead and look into it. Never know when somebody will go crazy
Cee Jay
4:18
Hanley Ramirez?  Be patient or time to move on?
Brad Johnson
4:18
Depends on the format. The shoulder injury isn't going away
I dream of Biagini
4:18
137 starters have thrown 30IP since Biagini became a starter (May 7th). His ranks during that time:
7th in GB%, 23rd in FIP, 25th in HR/9, 32nd in BB/9
but he's 136 of 137 in LOB% at 53%. League average is 72.5%LOB, this has to normalize, right?
Brad Johnson
4:19
Not sure. I don't have a good read on him. I do know he's very SB prone which doesn't help
Obviously, all those other indicators are interesting
