it is a good time to buy low on Bregman, might be able to wait longer though
4:37
always difficult to gauge that
Judge is probably a .230/30 bat
Relsh
4:37
Buying into Chase Headley or Mike Moustakes this season?
Brad Johnson
4:37
Moose more than Headley
they're both fine
Bruno
4:37
Has Lance Lynn convinced you yet he's back?
Brad Johnson
4:38
Honestly, I haven't seen him pitch yet. The stats look fine, but they've never made any sense
HappyFunBall
4:38
Believe in Thames enough to sell Upton for pitching? Or should I sell Thames?
Brad Johnson
4:38
Ask around about Thames first
just to see if someone is crazy
dee's nuts
4:38
If Happ is on the waiver wire in a 12 teamer, would you pick him up?
Brad Johnson
4:38
JA Happ? Nah, he's hurt
The Hills!
4:38
Sporer spells "yeah" as "ya", and you as "yea". Let's get together on this one...
Brad Johnson
4:38
I do all 3. They have very slightly different meanings.
I will not elaborate
BC
4:39
Ryon Healy or Souza for my OBP util?
Brad Johnson
4:39
ugh
Souza's the hot hand but Healy's the better OBP bet going forward. I'll say Souza
Inciarte
Mucho Maas
4:39
Best OBP league UTIL (hoping for a power/speed combo, but value above all): Broxton, Domingo Santana, Inciarte, Schimpf, Holliday, other widely available option?
Brad Johnson
4:40
That Inciarte was for this.
Mak
4:40
Jeimer Candelario is absolutely crushing the ball in Triple-A. Any chance he forces his way onto the Cubs' roster?
Brad Johnson
4:40
Nope
Where would he possibly play? Might net them a pitcher though.
Kroney
4:40
Domingo Santana: Are you a fan? Looking for a replacement for Marte and he seems to have more upside than Melky, Beltran, Dickerson, and Tomas.
Brad Johnson
4:40
Yea, go with Santana there. Or stream
Jed L (definitely not Lowrie)
4:41
When should we expect to see Franklin Barreto reach the majors? Worried about a friend of mine's playing time ...
Brad Johnson
4:41
September?
Late
June/July would be if he's raking
the exception is if they're sure they only need a 1 month patch
then he might get an early look
Weezy
4:41
start or sit Musgrove in a fairly deep 12 team QS league?
Brad Johnson
4:42
I'm still judging him. He's on my benches

Better handcuff for Brandon Maurer: Brad Hand or Ryan Buchter? Hand's stuff/skillset seem to be a better fit as closer than Buchter. Hand has better numbers but Buchter was called on to close the other week. Your thoughts?
Brad Johnson
4:42
Buchter is more likely to close. Hand is the better pitcher. Capps will rule them all if healthy
and Capps is DL stashable
Shane
4:42
Basically in a team-wide slump on offense (12 team 5x5), and outfield is the worst offender. CarGo, J Upton, Morales. Wait and see on all 3 or is it time to sell on any of them? Guys like Souza and Grossman on the wire.
Brad Johnson
4:42
Wait
