Matt Chapman? I doubt it
Aroldis tho? Of course

Do you play Ottoneu FG pts league(s)? How difficult is it to make up a 10,000 pt lead in the standings? First place team is stacked. Ugh.
Brad Johnson
5:05
Did you mean to say 1,000? I hope you meant to say 1,000.
1,000 is challenging but doable, especially if your opponent has used a bunch of extra innings or you've shorted your innings

i need to free up a roster spot but have kahlne stashed, i dont know how much longer i can hold on for. is it worth it?
Brad Johnson
5:06
I mean, you always knew you probably had to wait until July 31 for Kahnle
I think it's worth it if you need the save
Luis Severino
5:06
Since my teammate Pineda went under the knife do you think the Yankees will let me pitch more innings or do you think Inget shut down at some point?
Brad Johnson
5:07
The Yankees are going to compete. They can buy their way out of blowing up your arm
meanwhile, there's still literally no evidence that managing innings helps preserve a pitcher's arm
5:08
besides a few common sense measures like not asking pitchers to go beyond what they're conditioned to do, I don't see much value to managing innings
Tim
5:08
How much does JD Martinez's value increased if he's traded to COL or AX as rumored?
Brad Johnson
5:08
Well, not as much as you might think
The middle of the Detroit lineup is not a bad place to hit
5:09
nor has he lost out on many HR
Chris

Best SS ROS: Russell, Story, or Villar
Brad Johnson
5:09
By fantasy stats, probably Villar
those steals are deceptively valuable, especially with 3 other categories of help
Bregman
5:09
With Correas injury will I get any reps at SS or is Martin going to snake them all from me?
Brad Johnson
5:09
I hope to see Bregman there
But they may want to avoid the future controversy
5:10
then again, gauging Bregman's proficiency would be useful if Correa comes back looking clumsy

Oops, I meant 1,000
Brad Johnson

This was that ottoneu pts question. Glad it's only 1,000. you have an uphill battle, but you can grind your way to victory
5:11
I've coughed up a 600 pt lead in FG Staff 2 over the last month
Ryker
5:11
Is A Wood an Ace?
Brad Johnson
5:11
Yes
Is he durable? Probably not
Dflah

How do you feel about money being involved in trades? Our league just had a spirited discussion when it was used to get a trade done.
Brad Johnson
5:11
You mean like USD?
5:12
That should either be a specific feature of your league or it's a form of collusion
Like literally, that's exactly one type of collusion - offering non-fantasy goods/services for fantasy value
squints

i wish it was 10,000.  i really do
Brad Johnson
5:13
I suspect this is the point leader of that league :)
Estuve
5:13
What do you think is wrong with McCullers, just lingering back issues? Do you trust him to bounce back?
Brad Johnson
5:13
Maybe and maybe
I mean, if he's healthy, he'll be good
is he healthy? I don't know. How could I?
Miguel
5:14
You buying a Miguel Cabrera 2nd half resurgence?  Historically he's been better in the 2H, he's been hitting the ball hard and he had the ASB to get over early season nagging injuries...Or he's done. Which is it?
