Starling Marte back today. What are you expecting from him rest of season?
Brad Johnson
3:56
Preseason projections less time lost
Justin
3:56
Judge or Harper ROS?
Brad Johnson
3:56
The FanGraphs analyst in me is forced to say Harper
3:57
Though owning either player is a huge win for your roster

Is there any reason to think Kinsler turns it around this year or is he done?
Brad Johnson
3:57
Well, there is a third option - he scuffles through 2017 then returns healthy and effective in 2018
3:58
I don't think he's done done, but he may not rebound much this year
Jim Lahey
3:58
are you buying, selling, or holding Kyle Hendricks in a dynasty? That 2mph drop in velocity is no bueno
Brad Johnson
3:59
Holding. The velo isn't a big concern to me so long as his major joints seem healthy. He's a Greg Maddux type so I really just want to see him hitting spots
4:00
even the declined performance he's posted this season is easily playable
and he could recover that velo and upside at any time
Concerned Citizen

We discovered one the the co-commissioners in our league has been retroactively changing his roster after games begin to get guys in who have hit HRs or thrown QSs. He did this 5 times. ESPN will not let us retroactively undo the changes. What is the solution? He's been disqualified for the season and all keepers stripped. Is this over, or something else we can do?
Brad Johnson
4:01
Sounds done to me. I would have kicked him outright, but you may reasons for not doing that.
Dwide Schrude
4:01
Alonso or gyorko ROS? Alonso is on waivers considering picking him up
Brad Johnson
4:01
Alonso as long as position isn't an issue
Porcho Villa
4:01
Grandal is quietly having a down year-- walk rate is at a career low and power has dropped. Would you take Avila or Flowers over him for the rest of this season?
Brad Johnson
4:01
I'd go with Avila
4:02
Also, an interesting note, Austin Barnes has been borderline 12-team playable this season despite his backup role
and I mean in 1 catcher formats
Porcho Villa
4:02
Is Carpenter for LeMahieu and Berrios a fair swap (OBP league)?
Brad Johnson
4:02
With pitching as rare as it's been, I'll take Berrios
Orange WHIPs
4:02
So, who is the closer in Washington and how confident do you feel about your pick?
Brad Johnson
4:03
Ryan Madson and 75%? Doolittle is the better reliever, but being a southpaw with shoulder issues makes it easier to leave him in a flexible role
Robert
4:03
Best buy low SPs out there today?
Brad Johnson
4:03
Great question... I'll be back
4:04
I'm defining buy low as somebody with bad stats who could improve quite a bit
So I'm leaving out guys like Trevor Cahill on purpose
4:05
There's always a chance Trevor Bauer solves for X, although I hate betting on him. I think Marco Estrada gets his act together. Davies and Roark have some upside
Samardzija is a weird one, bad ERA, great FIP
Tyler Chatwood any time he's on the road
4:06
Probably too late to grab Porcello and Pom
Hendricks
Nola
Probably also missed Quintana. I'll stop there for now
Mike Milligan
4:06
Giving Cargo one last chance this week before cutting him. If he can't do anything this week in Coors it's time right ??
Brad Johnson
4:07
eh, I'm riding that train until I crash into a mountain
Just like JUpton last year
Ziggy
4:07
What kind of value does De Leon have in a dynasty league?
Brad Johnson
4:08
I can't really help you with that. Not only does "dynasty" encompass a stupidly wide range of formats, but opinions of De Leon range from future ace to garbage
Connecting...
