closer to the cat. I do think he'll be fine this season if healthy
Lauren

Manny Margot gonna be a 10-team bat this season?
Brad Johnson
12:22
Probably not, except as waiver wire steals

just dropped Max Kepler for Gsellman and then dropped Manuel Margot for Kendall Graveman -- I had plenty of OFs on bench and no SPs on bench -- 12 team roto -- tell me I did the right thing..............
Brad Johnson
12:22
Seems fine to me if you needed SP
I claimedGraveman
12:22
Dropped Shields, over guys like Finnegan, Berrios, Skaggs, Gsellman, Morton. Right move?
Brad Johnson
12:22
yep
Ken

How much impact do you see for Deshields this year? Given his strong spring, I had hoped TEX might try him at leadoff. Instead they hit Gomez leadoff and used Profar.
Brad Johnson
12:24
Expect a lot more Profar early. He's deceptively close to free agency so this is a make or break year for him with the Rangers. DeShields is a 4th OF type. The club can always turn to him later if he keeps hitting like it's spring.
Elmer

You a Nola believer?
Brad Johnson
12:24
Define believer. I think he's a fantasy quality SP, but not an ace
Rick

DL stashing...what are your thoughts on Dahl? I've got him, Beltre, and Sonny Gray stashed...thinking of bouncing Guerra now that he's out...can't decide between the two.
Brad Johnson
12:24
I see no reason to roster Gray
12:25
Hang onto Dahl
the Coors upside is so attractive
even if you give up on him, you can still extract a payment from someone else
Kid

Vogt is a pretty solid hitter for a catcher - Tell that guy in the 17-teamer to shop Posey and see if somebody will pay sticker for him.
Brad Johnson
12:25
I'm over 20 minutes in the past again, fastforwarding...
Ken
12:26
What is Deshields favorite color? Will he drink coffee on Sunday?
Brad Johnson
12:26
DeShields is a 4th OFer
:)
Matt
12:26
Is Khris Davis basically Nelson Cruz minus probably 20 points of BA?
Brad Johnson
12:26
Sure
Rick
12:26
Why does everyone hate Jay Bruce? 30+ HR with .815 OPS last year. Is it the batting average? Two first names? I don't get it. Think he plays all year and keeps Conforto at bay?
Brad Johnson
12:27
He's one out per week away from a -2 WAR player
MarinerDan
12:27
Austin Hedges: what are your thoughts?
Brad Johnson
12:27
The power is more real than people realize
everybody remembers the old scouting report of no bat, big glove
12:28
Would like him a lot more at Miller Park or similar
maybe 15 HR, otherwise mediocre numbers
Brian
12:28
Should I drop Greinke for someone like Morton, Wacha, or Liriano?
Brad Johnson
12:28
Ugh
12:29
I don't have the balls to tell you to drop Greinke for Morton
you may regret it, but you should keep Greinke
MarinerDan
12:29
Thoughts on this staff in a 14 team Roto: Kluber/Strasburg/McCullers/Jon Gray/Nova/Ross/Guerra/Lynn/Skaggs/McCarthy
Brad Johnson
12:30
That's a steep cliff on the back end. Keep looking for waiver finds like Graveman and Morton
Mike Milligan
12:30
Is DeShields basically Nelson Cruz without the average homers runs and RBI ?
Brad Johnson
12:30
If Nelson Cruz was a 4th OFer, much younger, faster, and less strong, he would be DeShields
JP
12:30
Any chance we see Hader sooner rather than later with the injury to Junior Guerra??
Brad Johnson
12:31
Could see Hader pretty soon. Timing is up to him more than anything.
