Never bet on anyone batting .300. Except for the superstars

Altherr or Fisher ROS?
Brad Johnson
5:14
I want to say Fisher, but Altherr is the safer bet

Is Justin Wilson immediately droppable now? Even in a league that counts saves+holds?
Brad Johnson
5:14
Yep
JD Martin
5:14
Altherr has posted really weird splits this year; much better K/BB rates vs. LHP and higher IFFB% (with same FB%), but higher LD% and better overall production vs. RHP.  Just an all around tricky guy to evaluate, especially since his injured 2016 drags down his projections
Brad Johnson
5:14
Don't worry about the splits yet. Sample's too small
Ken
5:15
Any buy-low starters you're targeting lately? I, like just about everyone, have a few injuries and could use an extra arm or two.
Brad Johnson
5:15
If your league is deep and you have the room, Tyler Chatwood is a beast on the road
he's back in business
just never start him at home
Dan
5:16
Thoughts on Bregman? Seems the FG staff is a little across the board on him.
Brad Johnson
5:16
I like him long term
I don't mind moving on for this season if you have access to comparable talent
trader Joe
5:16
I have Quintana and Duffy SP, he has Davis and Herrera RP, whats the offer from me?
Brad Johnson
5:17
Quintana + throw-in for both to open. 2-for-2 should be enough.
Assuming he's willing to trade a closer or two
might be a non-starter from the get go
Frank
5:17
Is the old Trevor Cahill back? I know it's only the last 2 starts but walks are back/Ks down.
Brad Johnson
5:17
It's a risk, monitor accordingly
Tom Guerrero
5:18
Thoughts on trading my odor for Quintana in a dynasty format at the deadline? Got a mid round pick included with Quint, but it wasn't a big factor.
Brad Johnson
5:18
I'm ok with it, but I'm one of the most pessimistic when it comes to Odor.
This is kind of an "I told you so" year from him
he'll have more good years too though
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe

How many steals does AJ Pollock nab off of Jon Lester tonight?
Brad Johnson
5:19
Welly starting? I'll go with zero
Dan
5:19
So my league just saw Jose Ramirez/Betances go for Gardner/Rivero. I think it was on the up-and-up, if quite lopsided. Just how upset should I be?
Brad Johnson
5:19
Seems fine to me
5:20
So this gets at what we discussed way back at 4pm
When you get down to the actual stats involved, there are a ton of scenarios where the Gardner/Rivero side looks better
but our instinct is to just see the two best players in the deal going to the same team
5:21
Time for me to wrap it up, I have rosters to set.
Eric
5:21
Eno didn't like it because of the trades (hundreds throughout the year, including creative rentals of varying lengths, etc.) and FA adds (no waivers). In short, it's a high-commitment league.
Brad Johnson
5:21
This is re: the Rosenheck league
I remember it now
5:22
thing was rigged to favor whoever best understood the weird rules
I didn't feel like playing that game
also whoever could find and exploit the guy who didn't understand
George
5:23
Hi! Keeper league...D. Swanson or the soon to be called up Dom Smith?  Tks.
Brad Johnson
5:23
probably Smith? I don't feel strongly about that
