Seems he's having a down season though. I hadn't looked at him since prior to the season

A very foolish gentleman in my league just dropped Rivero. I have Giles, Rosenthal, Hand, and Doolittle. Should I put in a waiver claim and drop one of the above?
Brad Johnson
4:27
I guess you could cut Doolittle for the more stable asset...
That's a tough scenario, but Rivero would be your best closer
4:28
Really unsure which to cut since they're all quite good
Not Luke

Can we get a poll to see if I  should trade my Luis Perdomo for his Oswaldo Arcia :)
Brad Johnson
4:28
In a vacuum, they're all going to say Perdomo.
4:29
This is for a 20 team, 45 player, keep 28 format. Arcia, it should be noted, is the best hitter in all of the minors.
Dynasty League: Which?

Luis Perdomo (38.9% | 14 votes)
 
Oswaldo Arcia (61.1% | 22 votes)
 

Total Votes: 36

Would you trade $80 auction dollars (out of $260) for Aaron Judge (keep forever for $3 + $3 inflation)
Brad Johnson
4:30
That's extremely tempting, but I can't say for sure without being in the league itself
auction dollars tend to disappear in inflation anyway
4:31
and value is found at the margins
I like putting myself in a position where I HAVE to find Yonder Alonso and Chris Taylor
Moltar
4:31
Shane Green or Bud Norris ROS? Loves me some SP-eligible closers.
Brad Johnson
4:31
I think I prefer Greene for the lack of competition
Mikel
4:31
Why are you more bullish on Judge?
Brad Johnson
4:32
This is in reference to an earlier question about Judge and Bellinger being possible 1st rounders
Bellinger's raw power doesn't match his actual home run total. Judge's totally does - if not exceeds it
4:33
So I foresee some regression with Bellinger whereas I think Judge will challenge for the HR crown pretty much every year he's healthy
And the Yankees are going to have some monster offenses in the near future with him at the heart of the order
4:34
We know they'll probably win Harper or Machado at the very least. I'd bet on a big trade too.

Melancon got lit up for 4 ER in 2/3 IP in his last rehab outing. Does Dyson keep the gig ROS?
Brad Johnson
4:34
If Melancon is healthy, they'll pop him back in the role. The contract forces their hand
4:35
Though, if he's struggling, they may just send him to do more rehab
Brian

Super Soaker to the head:  what kind of keeper is Devers?  Elite?  Wait and see?
Brad Johnson
4:35
Let's see what he does RoS
OC
4:35
Yelich and berrios or Carlos Martinez and Domingo Santana?
Brad Johnson
4:35
CMart and Santana are the top 2 in that swap imo
Admittedly, I have some Yelich fatigue
Carl
4:36
Why do you say pitching is so rare? Do you mean Aces are rare, and then after that everyone else is interchangeable?
Brad Johnson
4:36
I mean, there are like 30 SP in the entire league who aren't some kind of dumpster fire.
4:37
Here's a list of guys with 50+ IP as a SP. It gets ugly right around #35 (Bauer) - http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=sta&lg=all&qual=50...

Through the trade deadline I lost 2 closers and wasn't able to snag any of the new ones. Who is currently not closing that I might want to grab?
Brad Johnson
4:37
Ryan Tepera, David Hernandez, Brandon Kintzler
4:38
Maybe Carter Capps
RC
4:38
What are your thoughts on Alex Woods dip in velocity? He hasn't looked the same last 3 starts. Is it time to sell hard? I am tied for first and he has keeper value in our league so I may be able to get degrom for him but I lose three years of control at low cost.
Brad Johnson
4:38
I... had not noticed a dip. I shall investigate!
4:39
Seems he's slipped from 92-93mph range to 90-92mph since mid-June. Yea, that's concerning.
Brian
4:39
What do I have to do to win?  Been second 7 of 8 years.  Second again.  Any tips?
