I am holding onto Rosenthal for spec saves. At what point do I use his roster spot to chase short term saves like David Hernandez or Matt Albers?
Brad Johnson
4:20
When you're absolutely desperate for those saves. Because those are some nightmares
Big Tuna

Matt Bush implodes and then bounces right back to lock down a save. Can he be trusted as a closer?
Brad Johnson
4:20
Nope
I'm guessing the Bullpen Report has him listed as yellow
ROBOCOP

Who's worth more over next 4 years, Bellinger at $5-$9-$13-$17 or Judge at the same price? 5x5 roto auction keeper league
Brad Johnson
4:20
Judge
Willy Taveras
4:21
Was last year the outlier for Corey Dickerson and should he be considered a top 15-20 OF again?
Brad Johnson
4:21
He's very good right now. Seems to be a mechanical and approach based change
not everything is merely statistical variation
he was not the same player last year
Big Tuna

Is Kingery being called up to AAA just a brief stop over on his way to a down and out Phillies team?
Brad Johnson
4:22
Nah, that's not how they handle prospects
I doubt he'll even get a September call.
In fact, he doesn't need to be protected from the Rule 5 this winter. He won't be added. Their roster is a nightmare.

Wieters or Ramos ROS? 12 team OBP league
Brad Johnson
4:23
Ramos
TERMINATOR

Thoughts on Zunino? Top 8 catcher for the rest of the season?
Brad Johnson
4:23
Gross. I'm not getting tricked into buying Zunino after his annual 15 days of decency
Pat Listache
4:23
Who would you like to have ROS - Maybin, Broxton, or Zimmer?
Brad Johnson
4:24
Maybin with the caveat that he's frequently unhealthy

Is Alex Avila, the silver medalist of exit velocity, a useful piece in 12 team leagues after VMART comes back or is the lack of Plate Appearances make him droppable?
Brad Johnson
4:24
He'll play enough to be a catcher. McCann is bad.
Spreadsheet Scout
4:25
Is Mazara a genuine future fantasy stud, or just one of those Heyward-type bodies people love to dream on? I know he's still super young, just curious as to your opinion
Brad Johnson
4:25
I think he'll grow into a monster
4:26
Last year, I noticed he'd get fooled and make bad contact. Eventually, he probably won't be fooled as often.
There's always risk the development just stops
Marc
4:26
Drop McCarthy for Rodon? McCarthy has been pitching well, when healthy of course
Brad Johnson
4:26
You can, but don't play Rodon until he shows some life
he was terrible on rehab assignment
Omar Viquel
4:27
Jose Ramirez is a superstar on paper and keeper gold right?
Brad Johnson
4:27
Yep
Moltar
4:27
Does Norris regain the closer's job when he returns?
Brad Johnson
4:27
I doubt it. Who can predict Mike Scioscia though
Cee Jay
4:27
Joey Bats....in April his avg/obp were .178/.309
Brad Johnson
4:27
Regression is good.
keeper thoughts
4:27
Would you recommend using Newcomb at SD today in 10-team NL only?
Brad Johnson
4:27
Yes
4:28
great park, terrible offense, volatile/high ceiling pitcher
Johnny Cueto
4:28
Also follow up here. Thinking about trading Cueto for Kenley Jansen in NL-only. Have Wood, Ray, Godley, Leake, spot start Chatwood, with MadBum and Cahill on DL, but bullpen has been a mess all year. Seem fair?
