I guess Bearclaw is the guy then

Any chance Tazawa gets a crack?
Brad Johnson
4:49
Sure, chances abound

Any news on Springer?? His uncertainty is holding up a trade in our league (deadline is Thursday).
Brad Johnson
4:49
You probably know as much as I do
4:50
I own 0 shares so I don't pay much attention to him

Dynasty league - traded Trea Turner, Stroman, and some minor league draft picks (including 2 first rounders) for rental Darvish, rental Kimbrel, some later round picks, and Conforto. Turner and Conforto at same contract. Stroman at similar contract. Did I do good?
Brad Johnson
4:51
If they're going to win you a championship (or at least  more money), then it could be worthwhile
parting with Turner hurts though...
Tom Guerrero
4:51
Is Maikel Franco this bad? Thought his BA would have gone up by now.
Brad Johnson
4:52
Not enough hard contact
He needs to have an epiphany
4:54
ok I'm back, Chrome crashed

Can you give me an AL player who equates with Trevor Cahill? In an AL only and trying to gauge his value with limited knowledge. Thanks!
Brad Johnson
4:55
Hmm, that's pretty tricky. Cahill's value is in flux right now
4:56
Manaea, Porcello, or Tanaka maybe?
Similar fluxy guys with upside basically
Bern
4:56
Are you liking Fisher more than Haniger at this point in a Dynasty?
Brad Johnson
4:57
Oh yes. Always yes
Even with at the height of his hot start, Haniger was never as valuable as Fisher in dynasty

in an nl only keeper league i have a shot at some money 3rd or 4th place but no shot at winning. would you trade a non keepable springer for bennitendi at $15? i may or may not fall out of the smaller money w the lesser player
Brad Johnson
4:57
I'd go for it
decent chance with the injury that Benintendi outperforms Springer anyway
Steve

Re: Pham - drop him for Reddick? H2H points
Brad Johnson
4:58
Can do if you judge you need run production more than HR/SB
Hannah Hochevar
4:58
Re: Cahill - another way to phrase it: assuming he's more of a spot starter, what's the best team you'd start him against?
Brad Johnson
4:59
I'd pretty much use him indiscriminately unless he keeps imploding
Tommy Shambles
4:59
Been offered Betts and Godley for my Pollock, Andrus, and Rosenthal. I have Rosario at SS waiting. Yay or nay?
Brad Johnson
4:59
redraft I assume? I think I'd do it as long as you're comfortable giving that guy so many SB
Dipper Pines

Guess at a peak triple slash line for Fisher?
Brad Johnson
5:01
His current .317/.404/.610 would be a fine peak
More realistically, probably .280/.350/.560. It's so hard to do this now that everybody is hitting home runs
5:02
Presumably, there will come a time when NOT everybody is hitting home runs
Oddball Herrera
5:02
Think Castellanos *ever* breaks into the top 10 3B?
Brad Johnson
5:02
Not really
Might hover around the periphery
SJ

Was offered Donaldson (rental) for Jake Lamb (10th round keeper). Lamb has been more productive this season, but worth the gamble on Donaldson ROS?
Brad Johnson
5:02
Keep Lamb
fkalwnejo
5:03
How much leash does Norris have now that's he's blown two big leads in spectacular fashion? Who would be the guy to own, Parker, Bedrosian?
Brad Johnson
5:03
Bedrosian first
