I'm sitting here pondering the age old question of unicorns or eunuch horns. Perhaps it's time to start.
Which?

Unicorns (49% | 25 votes)
 
Eunuch Horns (51% | 26 votes)

Starling Marte

Oops
Brad Johnson
3:51
Yea, so let's get this out of the way.
3:52
You're all going to ask about Austin Meadows, I think we'll see him for a 1-2 months of these 80 games
3:53
For now, Adam Frazier will continue to absorb OF starts. Maybe we see some Bell out there too. Alen Hanson seems like he should be utile enough to do some OF too.
Chad
3:54
I know it's probably going to be asked by everyone, but Meadows or Osuna for the call up given the Marte suspension?
Brad Johnson
3:54
Jose Osuna is another guy who exists. We'll see him if they decide Meadows is not ready to be tested. Osuna's development is less important.
No need to Panik
3:55
Can we expect 10 HR and 10 SB out of Joe Panik?
Brad Johnson
3:55
More like 7/7
10/10 is maybe the 75th percentile
Thames :(
3:55
I thought Thames was supposed to steal 40 bags...overrated?
Brad Johnson
3:56
Somebody, I think it was Justin Mason, pointed out that his home runs have come against bad pitching. And I noted that about his KBO HRs during draft season
he's a bad ball feaster. As for steals. I think we actually see him take a few, but he's no rabbit

If the A's made the Wild Card game and had their choice, who would start the game?
Brad Johnson
3:56
I'd be starting a healthy Graveman

In a 10-team, H2H league (+QS), I have a banged up rotation that includes several mid-tier guys. Yu Darvish and Jake Degrom are followed by Rich Hill, Dylan Bundy, Sean Manaea, Vince Velasquez, Jake Odorizzi, Kendall Graveman, Carlos Rodon, and Robbie Ray. What do I do with this mess?
Brad Johnson
3:57
Ohh...
3:58
Since it's 10 team, I think you pick some guys to dump. For me, that's Odorizzi, Rodon, and Ray. Maybe VV. My colleagues would tell you to dump the other guys most likely.
Neal

Thanks for chatting Brad. Do you like Puig for Billy Hamilton straight up in a 30 team dynasty roto, or should Billy's steals demand more in return?
Brad Johnson
3:59
I'd want a lot more than Puig. I'd want somebody whose proven he's Puig's upside. Charlie Blackmon? Hamilton is an automatic 30 points in that format.
And more than good enough to start without reservation.
Make yourself Confortoble
3:59
Is Michael Conforto the 2nd best hitter on the Mets?
Brad Johnson
4:00
Probably. They have a lot of good not great hitters. Conforto is in that mess, but he has growth potential
JD15

Guy in my FGpts league has been after my Rich Hill pretty hard early going (including an offer yesterday). Would Nola and Finnegan be a fair ask in return?
Brad Johnson
4:01
Nola+ seems reasonable subject to costs
tuefel shuffle

thanks for the chat. need roster help if you can help. 5X5 12 man league. my pitching is very top heavy (kershaw, arrieta, cole and cotton...literally no other starters). do i trade beltran for wacha? or for shoe? or maybe rougie for duffy and bundy? or do i stick with what i got and get morton and mccarthy
Brad Johnson
4:01
if Morton is free, go get him
You can trade Beltran for a Wacha type too. Maybe look for something with a little more shine
Mountains

What are your thoughts on Trevor Cahill in NL-only leagues?
Brad Johnson
4:02
I have not considered having thoughts about Trevor Cahill
In general, anybody with a pulse and a job is worth a flier in Only formats
tuefel shuffle

frazier (pitt) comp --- panik?
Brad Johnson
4:02
Left-handed DJ LeMahieu
4:03
right down to the crappy SB rate
Josh
4:03
Best guess as what to expect from Rich Hill ROS? Who's a better DL stash between him and Steven Matz?
Brad Johnson
4:03
Hill's a way better stash
I'll be bullish and guess 100 IP
it's a big ol' shrug for now
Andrew
4:04
Angels haven't been able to diagnose Richards' injury cause yet... is it time to cut bait yet?
