see Bruce, Jay
D-backs
4:14
Are Taijuan and Corbin going to last the year in the starting rotation?
Brad Johnson
4:14
Not both of em
I bet Walker will
Moltar
4:14
3 man bench, I should just drop Marte right? It's a keeper but he probably wasn't gonna be kept anyway.
Brad Johnson
4:14
Probably
Sam
4:14
If you were drafting today what round would you take Eric Thames in?
Brad Johnson
4:15
I quickly lose any sense for this. I will say my expectations have not changed. He was already being draft like he'd do what he's done
Evil Goatee Brad

Re: A's starter, Steve Adams at MLBTR says Manaea. Travis Sawchik says Cotton. And here you are with Graveman. Not a question, just an observation.
Brad Johnson
4:15
Honestly, you can play the matchup, they're very different pitchers
JD15
4:16
Ender Inciarte...can he hit this year? Real fantasy asset in OBP league?
Brad Johnson
4:16
He was already an OBP asset before showing this power potential
Nels
4:16
You buying an Avisail Garcia breakout?
Brad Johnson
4:17
I've always been a Avisail detractor. Google my name and his. That said, these sorts of players often eventually figure out how to hit. Like EE.
ok, taking a very short break, will fast forward from 3:58 to the present when I return
4:19
I have closed the first poll. Eunuch Horns has defeated Unicorns by a narrow margin of 26-25
Second poll, a repeat of the one I asked on Twitter yesterday...
4:20
Which for fantasy stats?

Jett Bandy (38.9% | 21 votes)
 
Manny Pina (18.5% | 10 votes)
 
Andrew Susac (42.6% | 23 votes)
 

Total Votes: 54
Which Brewers catcher is the top fantasy option
Adam
4:20
Cut bait on any of Addison Reed, Ziegler, or Kelley in NL-Only, or hold and hope?
Brad Johnson
4:21
Maybe Kelley, he's a little off at present
Might be a better alternative out there
AYJAYF
4:21
Who do you like better ROS -- Dickerson or Souza? Does regular Roto or H2H make a difference? I want to buy into Souza changing something, and the fact that Dickerson will continue to get platooned, but am on the fence.
Brad Johnson
4:21
If those are waiver wire options, I'd bet Souza for now and keep a very close eye on his whiffs
I think he'll *poof* pumpkin on us any day now
4:22
I recall Carlos Gomez doing this one year
Jim-Bob
4:22
Are you a Jimmy Nelson believer?
Brad Johnson
4:22
I'm watching those changeups. Only difference from the past. Either way, he's solid-average
I feel better if the change becomes a weapon
My Ammie
4:22
True or false, AJ Ramos finishes the season as Miami's closer?
Brad Johnson
4:22
Probably false
club has been trying to replace him since he got the job
4:23
poor guy, he's quite good
dee's nuts
4:23
You still in on Bird? I've heard he's the word.
Brad Johnson
4:23
Sure am. Fantastic time to buy if you missed him during draft season
his owner probably doesn't want to cut bait, but I bet they're frustrated
4:24
Speaking of...I'll be right back :)
4:26
Those weren't easy trade scenarios
4:27
Offered Walker/Reed for Bird/Allen in one and Jose Reyes for Bird in another
Benn
4:27
Brad drop Velasquez and pick up Manaea? 14t H2H K/9
