The Kyd

Tanaka, Melancon, and Dyson all on my team. Awesome.
Brad Johnson

Kaboom
12:06

Trading Hanley and Greg Holland to land Cespedes in a 10-team redraft a deal worth doing?
Brad Johnson
12:06
yes
Macklemore
12:06
Hey Brad, what are your thoughts on Grichuk this season? Think he could be a .260 hitter with 30+ HR's?
Brad Johnson
12:06
that's the "everything worked out" season for him
expect less
Mookie
12:06
Have Sanchez and Lucroy in a 10-team 1 catcher league. How aggressively should I be seeking to move one or the other?
Brad Johnson
12:06
that's an odd situation to find ones self
12:07
try to, uh, avoid it in the future
in my experience, catchers just aren't tradeable in shallow formats
Might get a Michael Pineda offer for Posey
Bud
12:07
Or, in the alternative, is there a set time it will usually be up?
Brad Johnson
12:08
The streaming content should be up by 11am most days
Nick

So Graveman was sitting comfortably at 94 the whole night and began at 96 in the first inning. He also got 7 k's. Should I pick him up?
Brad Johnson
12:08
yes, pending your league/rotation depth
Kid
12:08
Do you think that Corey Seager is more of a perennial 20-25 HR guy, or a 25-30 HR guy?
Brad Johnson
12:08
the difference between those is very very small
He's a 20-30 HR guy
Dumpster Diver
12:08
Who has greater pts league upside if you could only keep 1- Domingo Santana or Jorge Soler?
Brad Johnson
12:09
domingo
PepeSilvia

Does Lance Lynn hold value in a 12 team league or does he stay more a streaming option?
Brad Johnson
12:09
Lynn never made sense when he was healthy, almost all fastballs
I'm letting others take a shot on him
Evil Goatee Brad
12:09
Kendall Graveman over Jake Odorizzi or teammate Sean Manaea? What about Fangraphs darling Robbie Ray?
Brad Johnson
12:10
Graveman over all, I think
this is not the first time I've been excited about Graveman...
TJ
12:10
Are you bullish on Buxton? I know he's only 12, but I feel like I've been reading scouting reports on him for forever. .350 OBP possible? 20/20 season? Thoughts?
Brad Johnson
12:10
I'm low man on the totem pole when it comes to Buxton
I don't think he has the ability to recognize pitches
the physical talent is there, but he always looks super lost
Kid
12:11
In a vacuum, Arenado + Justin Turner or Rizzo + Posey?
Brad Johnson
12:11
Arenado, although the later pairing is better for building a roster
B
12:11
Keuchel's velocity yesterday looks very close (exact?) to his first start in '15. Good things to come for him?
Brad Johnson
12:12
Shrug? I honestly don't know. I didn't think the velocity was the issue. His command went from 60-70 range to 40-50 range last season
Mike
12:12
I took DeShields as an end of draft lottery ticket. How patient should I be before dropping to work the wire? Just kind of baffled he's not getting a firm look right out of the gate with how good his spring was.
