How would you rank these lottery ticket SPs? Tyler Skaggs, Luis Severino, Shelby Miller, Mike Foltynewicz, & Jesse Hahn. I'm in a H2H league with K/9 as a category. Thanks!

Miller-Sev-Folty-Skaggs-Hahn
4:28
Miller and Severino are immediate action types. The others should be on the wire
Terry's Sarape

What if they changed the ruling of a "save" to include the phrase "NO RUNS SCORED" while the pitcher was pitching - earned or unearned - does that make the "Save" stat more worthwhile?
Brad Johnson
4:28
Meh
Mike

souza, domingo santana, or grichuk as a backup OF in 12 team league?
Brad Johnson
4:28
I'm rolling Santana
bigger growth potential
Roids
4:28
In what type of scenario do you think we should hold Marte? I don't want to drop my 2nd round pick, but I'm not sure it's worth holding for 80 games? 12 team roto...SB's are mighty important.
Brad Johnson
4:28
5 or more bench with an otherwise well-balanced roster
4:29
you're SHOL either way
you'll regret keeping him, and you'll really regret letting him go. But maybe you find a Mitch Haniger along the way
St. James
4:29
What's the biggest difference in draft/acquisition strategy when a league transitions from K's to K/9?
Brad Johnson
4:30
For roto, it's not actually different
there's less pressure to hit your IP cap, but you still should
For H2H, big relievers gain a ton of value
Pete

Jordan Montgomery: Buying or selling?
Brad Johnson
4:30
Big time buying
expect bumps, but I love what we've seen so far
Nolan
4:31
Been offered Thor and Betts for my Springer, Lester, and DeGrom in a H2H points league. It's a no-brainer, right?
Brad Johnson
4:31
Not sure I'd call it a no-brainer, but I'd probably do it
Guest

I just traded Kimbrel, McCutchen, and Treinen for Jansen, Cotton, and Grandal. Members of my league are giving me crap for "fleecing" the other Player. Do you have a stance on this?
Brad Johnson
4:32
Huh?
I suppose it's a tad lopsided. Nothing silly though
Maybe Cotton should be like Joe Musgrove instead
Adam
4:32
What's your over/under on where Trevor Story's K% settles?
Brad Johnson
4:32
28%
Mallory
4:33
With the Phillies going nowhere in the standings, do you think it's time they give Nick Williams a try in the OF and see what he can do at the MLB level?
Brad Johnson
4:34
No. Williams isn't near the top of the "see what's what" list
First up is Aaron Altherr
it's already criminal that he isn't playing every day
Altherr is a much better player than Williams right now
Roman Quinn is probably next on the list, although all the Triple-A Phils have started slow
Bored

Broxton, Gardner, Rajai, or Fazier to replace Marte in a 12 team dyntasty?
Brad Johnson
4:35
Broxton for dynasty lols
Gardner if you just want to ensure some steals and runs now
ThatsMyStory
4:35
Three questions: do you feel the Judge we're seeing now is representative of the player he can be this year (270ish 30 homer bat)? Also, is now a great time to buy low on Bregman when the power has not yet shown up? 3rd question, are both those guys worth a broken Donaldson in an 8 keeper league when I already employ Arenado?
Brad Johnson
4:36
I'd be worried about selling Donaldson for lotto tickets
It's a fair concept, but awfully risky
