they seem intent on keeping Parker away from saves

Betts/Trea for Lindor/Carrasco/Paxton/Chapman, 14tm H2H keeper, keep 6. Be sacrificing too much high-end keeper equity to win this year?
Brad Johnson
5:03
Does that get you the win? And how much money is at stake?
5:04
They could be perennial top 5 talents
and in a keep 6, you want as many 1st rounders as possible
Sterling Mallory Chris Archer

I need runs and RBIs but I'm torn on who is my full time UTIL in Dozier or Donaldson.  Josh hit a few HRs lately but Dozier also could get me a few SBs.  Whose the man?
Brad Johnson
5:05
Dozier hit half of his HR last season in August and September
Eric

You have Altherr as a .870 OPS true-talent guy? Wow. I shouldn't have traded him for Devenski...
Brad Johnson
5:05
Maybe .800-.850 is more reasonable. Like I mentioned, it's hard to do this now with the elevated scoring environment
Jarrett
5:06
Trade Lamb for DeGrom? Strong across Hitting and Pitching but figure hitting easier to replace than pitching.
Brad Johnson
5:06
Can do
hitting is easier to replace, but that's because pitching evaporates
so there's risk involved either way you slice it

cueto pretty much done for the year at this point?
Brad Johnson
5:06
Seems like it
Skeeter
5:07
I thought Claudio was the closer, but then he threw 2.2 IP last night. You still think he's the closer?
Brad Johnson
5:07
Well, it's still committee time. Claudio's their most trusted reliever at the moment
Pace of questions has slowed down if you're still hanging around
Jimmy
5:08
Are $$ stakes that important or is a championship in an ongoing 15+years keeper league of equal value?
Brad Johnson
5:08
I'm all about the cash :0
Here's how I look at it, I'll move all in when a good chunk of change is at stake. Otherwise, I'm always going to balance my current and future needs
5:09
In a free or low entry league, I'm still going to do what I can to win, but I'll be more hesitant to trade a big future asset for win-now materiel
5:10
Since production often comes from unexpected sources, I'll instead focus on finding those sources

Price's ownership in ESPN has fallen 8% since he was put on the DL. This seems absurd and overreactive right? Or do they know something I don't?
Brad Johnson
5:10
Probably just some super shallow formats
Turp
5:10
ROS outlook for Nunez in Boston?  standard 5x5
Brad Johnson
5:10
Quite good? I traded Odubel Herrera for him this morning
To replace Jose Peraza who I finally cut
Tim
5:11
To follow up on Claudio - doesn't seem like he's got that fabled closer 'stuff.' Don't think LeClerc gets first look? (Assuming Kela is still not quite there yet)
Brad Johnson
5:11
Claudio has the Britton/Kintzler profile
pre-breakout Britton that is
he closed for the Orioles, if you'll recall
Ken
5:12
I've been getting by on saves with an ugly collection of arms. Think Dyson keeps the job RoS? What about Norris?
Brad Johnson
5:12
Melancon has started a rehab stint, so no
Norris needs to rebound fast
Pete
5:12
Sorry I know this is like the third time someone has asked but why are you so confident kintzler will be closer in Washington ?
Brad Johnson
5:13
Was told they were only looking to acquire a closer
Eric
5:13
You should join the Rosenheck league next year.
Brad Johnson
5:13
I remember looking into it and deciding against it for some reason. Remind me what that was...
JT
5:13
Does Margot settle in as a .280-.300 hitter?
