You've got to stuff Stanton back in the 1st round now too. And there's all those other studs who haven't gone away
plus Turner. SPs are so rare that you have to think about an ace.

At this point in the season, does it make more sense to ignore weaknesses and load up on strengths for the playoffs? For example, I lose in batting average almost every week, so would it make more sense to drop a guy like LeMahieu for someone like Gallo or Schebler?
Brad Johnson

For H2H, you do want to have your 6 or so strong categories. But there's more than one way to build a winner. It sounds like your roster is probably built to punt AVG though

Who do you prefer for he next 3 years - Mookie or Correa?

MOOOOKIE

Any prospects in the minors that could be stashed as one of seven keepers for next year?
Brad Johnson
4:17
Not with the way major leaguers are playing. Prospects have never been less valuable in shallow keeper formats (i.e. fewer than 150 players kept)

Better career when all said and done - carmar or archer?
Brad Johnson
4:17
I'll bet on CMart

Baez turn a corner?  Is he becoming the 30 homer, 15 steal guy everyone had expected?
Brad Johnson
4:18
I don't think we're getting that many SB from him any time soon. He's basically Rougned Odor with more off days.
dee's nuts

re: insta-quit . . . I thought about it.  There was some bs rationale about "not dumping" to which I asked whether that was written down.  It isn't.  The commissioner is also in third while I'm in first, so there's that
Brad Johnson
4:19
I'd probably leave the league after the season then, citing your commissioner for cheating

acuana, moncada and trea turner for degrom and Ramirez – I cant think of one format in which this is a bad trade. This is a classic trade future for win now type of move. I don’t even know what side is supposedly unfair?
Brad Johnson
4:20
Related to that last comment (and an earlier one). Personally, if the league is deep enough, then Turner is too much to pay for the pair alone.
But I don't see anything wrong with the swap. I assume there's some desperation in play for this guy in 1st

If you're a GM and you can have either goldy or Harper next year and next year only who do you take?
Brad Johnson
4:20
Goldy
That's just me though. I understand most people would pick Harper
Kevin
4:21
Think Ozzie Albies provides any fantasy value for the rest of season?
Brad Johnson
4:21
I really don't
Giorgio
4:21
Fulmer a top 10 pitcher in dynasty?
Brad Johnson
4:21
He's in that conversation, yes
Slapshot

Do you have any advice on ways to best make up innings to reach an innings limit in a league like ottoneu?  Is it worth it to use my starters every time they come up until my projection approaches the limit, or is there something to be said to being cautious with the borderline guys (like a Jason Vargas type) even if it means coming up short on innings?
Brad Johnson
4:22
For ottoneu, you MUST hit your cap, even if it means you took some sub-prime innings in the process
FGpts that is
if it's just a 5x5, then there's more to the calculation
Bob

What do you know about Acuna?  Is he the next coming of Mike Trout?
Brad Johnson
4:23
Ha! I wouldn't go that far
People like his work ethic and tools. Plus he's performing at a young age.
I don't really have a comp for him, that's a better question for Eric

Why does Trout have to be a "Qualified Batter" in order to be listed as a leader in WAR?
Brad Johnson
4:24
I mean, he doesn't. It's just how the pages work for the purpose of sorting other stats.

osuna and rivero decided my 0.20 ERA lead should become 0.02. Ratios are the pits...
Brad Johnson
4:25
I'm worried about Osuna. His velocity is down a couple tics lately. Working 92-94 mph
Was consistently 95+ earlier in the year
I got more hits than Sadaharu Oh
4:25
Who are the best international prospects after Shohei Otani? Any predictions on where Otani might sign?
Brad Johnson
4:26
Uh, there's a hitter. I need to look him up...
