You in or out on Schwarber?
Brad Johnson

In
Big Tuna

Now that Kang is likely not coming over to the states, does Harrison continue to start for the Pirates for the rest of the season?
Brad Johnson
3:57
He was going to start anyway
just not at 3B
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe
3:57
If you like that one, there are two more similar questions...hope you see those too.
Brad Johnson
3:58
Saw 'em but figured I'd get down to business
Nelson
3:58
Any reason to doubt Schleber getting to 30hrs?
Brad Johnson
3:58
Yea
I'll even elaborate, hold on...
3:59
So initially, he was hitting way more fly balls with a sharp increase in power. Lately, he's been shifting back towards grounders. Also leaning on a 27.1% HR/FB%
4:00
Now, given the home park and a 40 percent fly ball rate, he can still easily reach 30 HR
but there is reason to have some doubt
Nelson
4:00
Should we still consider Villar as a 3rd roundish talent?
Brad Johnson
4:00
No
4:01
He's a mid-round guy due to the upside and speed
Bo

Is it reasonable to drop Carlos Santana in a 12-team 5x5 mixed H2H? He's still so high in a lot of expert rankings and I just don't see why. I'd be dropping him to open a utility spot for Mitch Haniger when he's off the DL.
Brad Johnson
4:01
I think a lot of rankings get infected by OBP
I don't see him as droppable, but that kind of depends on your format
4:02
I'm thinking standard deep rosters
if you're not using CI, then yea, you can cut

Better fantasy bat in dynasty OBP leagues - Bellinger or Joc?
Brad Johnson
4:02
Bellinger
Choos on First
4:02
Would Kershaw or Trout be the Jordan of that group?
Brad Johnson
4:02
Hmm, if you're making a movie, I think you have to make Harper the Jordan
4:03
nobody wants to watch a movie with Trout or Kershaw as the lead
JD15
4:03
How do you handle guys in daily playing against knuckleballers? Rather have a guy like Josh Bell vs knuckle or Chris Taylor against non knuckle?
Brad Johnson
4:03
It's the one time I'll check BvP. I usually avoid unless there's some compelling reason to do otherwise
Mark
4:03
Kendrys Morales or Carlos Santana?
Brad Johnson
4:03
Push
Crazy 8
4:04
More valuable in dynasty OBP league: Bogaerts or Bregman?
Brad Johnson
4:04
Bogaerts
Tex

Perdomo had an ugly second outing last week, and he's @WAS this week. Bail on him for the week?
Brad Johnson
4:04
He's a streamer. So yes, avoid his bad outings.
Choos on First
4:04
Start Jared Hoying vs Procello or Peraza vs Carrasco tonight?
Brad Johnson
4:05
Well you're certainly sitting on attractive options
I'll go Peraza
maybe Carrasco throws 2 IP
StL Steve
4:05
Vetoes seem ridiculous unless you can prove collusion...which is next to impossible
