Brad Johnson

No, not interested in Moran
Mike

Traded Edwin Encarnacion, Justin Turner and Addison Reed for Corey Seager, Josh Donaldson and Kenta Maeda. Shallow league so I'll cut Maeda; thinking Reed is dealt to a non-closer situation. You like the deal?
Brad Johnson
4:55
Yea, good sell high, buy low on Donaldson
now you just need it to play out as scripted
Alex
4:55
Have an offer getting AJ Pollock for my Jon Lester. Should I take it?
Alex
4:55
Who do you like better rest of season?  Stroman or Duffy?
Brad Johnson
4:56
Gimme Stroman and Pollock. However, before you trade Lester, you need to be sure you can afford the loss of pitching stats. Moving from Lester to replacement level will really hurt. Whereas Pollock to say Pham isn't all that painful

ERod on my DL in 12 team saves league. drop any of jordan montgomery, straily, yonder alsonso, betances, ryan madsen, brian mccann (grandal is my other C) to activate him, or keep him stashed for now?
Brad Johnson
4:57
Leave him stashed. Somebody else will probably hit the DL before you need to make a move
Straily or Monty are probably the cut unless McCann is just chilling on your bench
4:58
I've been leaving guys on my DL all season. Always resolves within a couple days
Was stuck with ERod and Morton in a couple leagues and had Chiz and Altherr clear out
Tim
4:58
I've got first place in a 12-team redraft by a verrrry narrow lead and just lost Correa with no backup shortstops. Waiver options are DeJong, Hernan Perez, Tim Anderson. Gotta go trade hunting, yes?
Brad Johnson
4:58
Yea, but you can also try to stream instead
4:59
in other words, don't force the issue
I think you can cobble together decent stats from the wire with those and similar guys (i.e. Arcia and Galvis)

Cesar Hernandez or Lowrie ROS?
Brad Johnson
5:00
Lowrie
Ryan
5:00
Any potential call ups that you see making an immediate impact? Maybe ones that wouldnt be owned in a dynasty league. Just lost correa.
Brad Johnson
5:00
Oi, that's a tough request
Luke Voit is up now and pretty good looking
Rosario is supposedly coming soon
but he's probably owned
Matt
5:00
I just bought low on Rodon in a dynasty-esque league. I'm not all that concerned about this season, but do you think he ever lives up to the hype and can be a legit SP2 type?
Brad Johnson
5:01
15-30% chance
Hannah Hochevar
5:01
You like Hunter over Foxy Boxy for TB save spec?
Brad Johnson
5:01
Yes
Porcho Villa
5:01
Better C rest of season: Russell Martin or Yasmani?
Can you elaborate on your Jose Peraza support? He has a 1% BB rate, which may be some kind of record, and we know you can't steal first...
Brad Johnson
5:01
Grandal unless he's hurt
5:02
As for Peraza, that low walk rate is kind of part of why I see upside
5:03
Cesar Hernandez was in a similar boat last year (4%ish through 3 months) before he suddenly became very selective. Had a .400ish OBP in the second half. Not saying Peraza will do that, but it's in the realm of possibility
Dwide Schrude
5:03
McCullers for Paxton straight up?
Brad Johnson
5:03
Smells reasonable
CHALLENGE TRADE
Baryolo Cologne
5:03
Pham for Villar...who wins?
Brad Johnson
5:03
Villar
I see more downside for Pham than most of my colleagues
5:04
I think he's extremely high volatility
Fez
5:04
is chapman a top 5 closer next year?
