Just picked up Joc for $1. Thinking about trying to trade for a rental Cespedes, but hesitant on what to give up. Think it's worth the gamble, or do you think I already have Cespedes' risk/reward for cheaper in Pederson?

Get Cespedes

Is Brent Suter this good?
Brad Johnson
4:27
You mean is he league average starter? No, probably not.
He's induced a lot of soft contact, but I'm not sure it's a repeatable skill
if it is, then he's a MLB pitcher
if not, then he isn't

Was Eric not doing his chat today?
Brad Johnson
4:28
I know nothing of the chatting habits of others. I chat every Tuesday unless I have a conflict. Which has been regrettably often this season

Dickey or Sabathia in points ROS? On a related note, kill me.
Brad Johnson
4:28
oh god. Dickey's the hot hand

Gave up Alonso for Nova since I needed a somewhat decent arm to replace Pineda. Think I got enough?
Brad Johnson
4:29
It's not ideal, but sometimes it's better to pull the trigger quickly than to squeeze out all the pennies

Move Belt/Andrew Miller for Quintana in dynasty points? Need an SP but not sure if it matches value wise.
Brad Johnson
4:29
I like that
Belt is a good 1B, but his production tends to be easy to replace
4:30
That said, I don't think it's a must-trade if you're enjoying Miller's dominance
reliever do tend to asplode and he's had some elbow issues
then again, SP also asplode
helpful advice, eh?
CK

Tell us something only the real Brad Johnson would know
Brad Johnson

Everybody thinks it's clever to make a joke about the football player. It's not.

MadBum in re-draft: buy/sell/hold?
Brad Johnson
4:31
buy always
Frank
4:31
favorite buy low hitter rest of season?
Brad Johnson
4:31
Same definition as before - somebody bad who should be better...
4:33
Cargo, Peraza (if you need SB), Villar (same), Nunez (same), Doobie Herrera, Story, DJLM, Schwarber, K Seager. Of those, my favorites are Seager, Schwarber, and Nunez

McCullers and Jay Bruce for Murphy in OBP/QS League?
Brad Johnson
4:33
Sure.
Matt W
4:33
Should I start to worry about McCullers?
Brad Johnson
4:33
You should always worry about McCullers. Has trouble staying healthy and/or reaching the sixth inning
CK
4:33
is the Padres rotation secretly good?
Brad Johnson
4:34
It's not the disaster we all predicted. Except for Weaver. That was worse than I expected. And I expected a whole heap of bad
Matt
4:35
Over the last three years, my 12-team roto has had 4 team-seasons over 4.00 ERA. So far this year, that's the median. Why is pitching so bad?
Brad Johnson
4:35
Everybody is hurt or susceptible to the swing changes everybody has made
it'll take a couple years to start producing pitchers who work effectively near the top of the zone. Meanwhile, a few Dan Strailys will emerge out of nowhere

Follow-up: How "real" is Bellinger? ROS guess? Production comp? Guess at next year's draft slot?
Brad Johnson
4:36
I think the power is the one thing we'll see revert to a 25 HR pace
otherwise, more or less real, pending any holes
never know when a fatal flaw will be found. He doesn't seem to have one though
