Brad Johnson
4:44
super utility guy with potential to swipe a handful of bags
Frank
4:44
have you seen who the DBacks are playing in the OF recently?
Brad Johnson
4:44
ayup, it'll get much better soon
Lindor
4:44
Is he truly a sub 800 ops SS or has he been unlucky/struggling? I know his defense is great but that has no fantasy implications.
Brad Johnson
4:45
I think he's a .750-.900 OPS guy
I get that's a big range, but it SHOULD be a big range
Frank
4:45
DBacks have been playing Hermann/Fuentes/Blanco in their OF...can't Oswaldo Arcia help in corner OF? he killing it in AAA (granted its PCL) but isnt he an upgrade?
Brad Johnson
4:46
Arcia is in beast mode. It really says something about him that the club hasn't given him a shot
they  obviously don't like what they see
T
4:46
Villar or Maybin ros?
Brad Johnson
4:46
ah, sadly I'm inclined to prefer Maybin
Travis
4:46
What are your thoughts on Carlos Martinez's Home/Road Splits? Would you start him in Arizona tonight?
Brad Johnson
4:46
I'm starting him, but I'm also cringing
he's too good to sit anywhere
AdRock
4:46
Nova vs TB, or Gsellman (x2) vs MIA and PHI? Weekly H2H pts
Brad Johnson
4:46
Nova
4:47
I don't want anything to do with Gsellman the starter
I'll roster his reliever alter-ego though
Dongmingo
4:47
Trade away Kluber for Lamb and Andrew Miller? 6x6 16 team keeper with OPS and holds.
Brad Johnson
4:47
I like that swap on both sides
HRM
4:47
Why do you say that Vargas is below average?  4 of his last 5 were quality starts.  Not many K's, but with so much bad pitching, isn't he still valuable?
Brad Johnson
4:47
I guess if you're in a QS league
Otherwise, he offers zero above average categories
4:48
which is by definition, below average
R2D2
4:48
beep beep boop beep bop...do you think the White Sox could get Ablies in a Quintana trade with Atlanta?)
Brad Johnson
4:48
hahaha no
maybe before he pitched poorly for three months
they'll get a decent return because the peripherals are fine, but they've lost the opportunity to command a premium prospect
Jim
4:49
Thoughts on Kendrys Morales?  I was bullish on him preseason due to the ballpark/lineup upgrades, but he's scuffling...GB% stinks, to boot.  Thinking about dropping him so I can snag CarGo off waivers to DL-stash...then i'll just find ANYBODY else, right?
Brad Johnson
4:49
I like Morales, but go ahead and stash Cargo
you won't miss him that much
Marc
4:49
Mazara or Domingo ROS and next year
Brad Johnson
4:49
Domingo? Pretty close through end of 2018. I prefer Domingo in 2017
TJ
4:50
What's your take on Lucroy?  ...besides the fact that he can't frame or play defense anymore...dude just ain't hitting!  Drop him for Ramos or Grandal?  Thanks!
Brad Johnson
4:50
Grab Grandal
Lucroy has turned into a better Francisco Cervelli
C3PO
4:50
Moncada over/under 80 games played in the majors this year?
Brad Johnson
4:50
Way under
weird Star Wars theme btw
Oddball Herrera
4:51
Forsythe is 44th at 2B by wR+.  Utley can't be trusted to play every day, and is also below average offensively.  Why is Willie Calhoun still in the minors?  Even if defense is the issue, put him in LF and let Taylor play second.  Stats make me think he can be who we all wanted Maikel Franco to be...
