nice 4 man OF rotation and a solid INF. Profar's been blocked all year

Andrew benintendi for Gregory Polanco in a dynasty, who wins? Both teams out of contention this year
Brad Johnson
4:14
I like Benintendi more
Mark
4:14
Willie Calhoun looks like hes ready for the Show, any chance he gets a shot? I need help at 2B and I'm in a 10 team dynasty.
Brad Johnson
4:14
There's a shot, but I just don't see the path. 1B maybe?
Frank
4:14
What do you see coming from Albies? Would you take him over Villar?
Brad Johnson
4:15
I'm not an Albies fan for fantasy purposes. I don't see much potential for production
He's the type of guy who could just suddenly get a lot better
right now, I'd compare him to a lesser version of Francisco Lindor when he entered the league
I use Lindor because he spontaneously improved
John C.

Brad not sure if you do any h2h leagues but if you do, how do you keep an even keel over the course of the year? I'm in a 14 tm league and in 2nd in both h2h and roto but I tend to live and die with each plate appearance at times and there are some weeks or even some days where I question whether or not I have the slightest clue or if I should find a new hobby.
Brad Johnson
4:17
I have one H2H league. My philosophy is to spend every single dollar on pitching. It's worked very well this year. So many free bats to carry the offense, auto-winning nearly every pitcher category
When I try to draft offense AND pitching, bad things happen

Next year is Brad Peacock a starter or reliever?
Brad Johnson
4:17
yes
4:18
In all seriousness, he's probably a swing starter. I don't recall if he's a free agent
he's been around long enough for that to be possible, lemme check
4:19
Nope, Astros will want him in the 6 slot
NukeLaloosh
4:19
Does calhoun's outlook change in Arlington where he can DH?
Brad Johnson
4:19
Personally, I wouldn't be looking to DH him just yet
If anything, maybe 1B with Gallo back to Triple-A
I like having all 4 of their OF in the lineup vs. RHP
4:20
can get a guy like Calhoun DH reps against LHP

Pretty beat up and fighting for the last playoff spot.  Correa won't be back until playoffs.  My rendon/Correa/Fulmer for his Betts/smoak/pomeranz?  I need steals and outfield help.
Brad Johnson
4:20
I like this gamble
given your stated needs
John

Who is going to pick up the save chances for Minn now that kintzler got traded?
Brad Johnson
4:21
Taylor Rogers and Matt Belisle seem to be front of the line
Scuba Steve
4:21
Is Acuna worth a stash now in keeper leagues?
Brad Johnson
4:21
Depends on the rules. If MiLB guys are nearly free, sure
Could really fill up the stat sheet
the coveted 5 category monster
Matt Barnes
4:22
What do you expect from Derek Fisher ROS? Should I make sure my wife stays clear of him?
Brad Johnson
4:22
Really impressed to this point, showing everything you could possibly want from a player like him
4:23
If we could go to a fantasy world where Bellinger and Fisher both had 40 PA, I'd take Fisher
Thanks for the chat!

At what point do you feel comfortable with your projected lead? I'm projecting to win by >700 points in Ottoneu, but injuries have hit me of late and my actual lead is down to a couple hundred points (can be covered with a really good day). Go big on a trade or stand pat?
Brad Johnson
4:24
I try to keep a 500 point buffer. The bigger the lead, the better though. Anything you can do to demoralize the competition will help to make up for slumps and Kershaw dying on you
ahem, me

How do you feel about Billy Hamilton and Bud Norris for Rivero, Nola, and Marte?
