Miggy is the next David Ortiz. I'll never give up.

Expectations for Luis Castillo being a fantasy asset in the 2nd half?
Brad Johnson
5:14
A thousand people have asked about Luis Castillo even though I already commented. In summary, I think he's a worthwhile stash while we gather more info
5:15
I don't think he'll succeed at GABP in 2017, but I can't rule it out either
and there is bigger future potential
may be an elite reliever

I am short innings in trying to race down a guy in 1st place who is long in innings. Trade inquiries not going so well. My 1-6 are Stras, Greinke, Price, Shark, Tanaka & Gio. Nova isn't giving me much confidence at #7. Should I add Perdomo, Waino, JC Ramirez or *gulp* Dickey, as another spot starter?
Brad Johnson

Try to stream
it's been an awful season for streaming - I know because I write a column about it
5:16
However, it's still better to play matchups than bet on any on of those guys

Does Correa's injury hurt fantasy values for non-star Astros like Josh Reddick? Seems like a lot of his value is driven by scoring a zillion runs, which he'll do less of without CC.
Brad Johnson
5:16
Well, sure, it'll hurt some, but not that much
squints

apologize if i already sent this question but should i deal arrieta for cutch.....to upgrade from peralta?
Brad Johnson
5:17
I'd probably hang onto the pitching. So hard to find it
Gorper
5:17
Sorry, got here late.
Brad Johnson
5:17
No worries, yours was just the latest of a couple dozen examples (no hyperbole)
Mike

Dee Gordon or AJ Pollock?
Brad Johnson
5:17
Pollock unless you literally only need a chance at 30 SB RoS
Matt
5:17
Should I drop Vargas or Marco Estrada for Zack Godley?
Brad Johnson
5:18
Um, yes. Do that 2 months ago if you can
Ebenezer
5:18
Starlin or Chris Davis?
Brad Johnson
5:18
I'll bet on Davis producing more runs and HR
Mike
5:19
12team, 5x5 H2H. I'm middle of the pack w/ strong pitching, but not at the level of #1-3. Worth seeing if I can flip Scherzer for Harper & Greinke for say like a Pollock-type bat?  Aim here would be to sweep at the plate and hope for a W in Saves / ERA / WHIP...
Brad Johnson
5:19
I've always found it much easier to control the pitching stats and luck into hitting categories
Turner Sadness

I lost Trea Turner as my SS and am trying to hold on to first place. I've been cycling guys in and out. Currently have Asdrubel Cabrera but Reyes, Escobar, and Galvis are available. Who would you take a shot on?
Brad Johnson
5:20
Just keep cycling based on matchups. Keep checking Coors Field, looking into swapping a tidbit for Arcia, etc.
Kris
5:20
You believe in Schoop for the 2nd half? He's basically been Robinson Cano for the 1st half.
Brad Johnson
5:20
He's improved. Much more patient this year
Not sure he'll remain Cano, but he's a fantasy playa
Ryan
5:21
Think Zach Granite will have an fantasy impact this year?
Brad Johnson
5:21
No, not really
he could, just isn't very likely
he'll probably get demoted if he doesn't have a three hit game soon
Frank
5:21
Better 2018 asset: A. Bradley or A. Vizcaino?
Brad Johnson
5:21
Bradley
Attila the Hunplugged
5:21
Do you see Derek Fisher coming up soon?
Brad Johnson
5:21
The outfield is still pretty crowded
so not really
5:22
I've reached the last question. This never happens. (I did skip a couple hundred early on)
