Agreed
Bruce

How old is the term "take"? There were no "hot takes" when I was growing up.
Brad Johnson
4:05
There were takes as long as there were talking heads
the hot modifier was added later
Matt

Brad - any relation to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson?
Brad Johnson
4:06
My friend believed I was related to Keyshawn Johnson. I'm very white.
And I don't mean that in a racist way, I mean the sun scalds me if I happen to walk outdoors
Josh
4:07
Is Steven Matz a top 40 arm once he's activated this week or next week?
Brad Johnson
4:07
Somewhere around there, pending performance
could quickly move in either direction

The times that I've seen writing about Rhys Hoskins there have been Goldschmidt comps. Is this due to him not showing up on the national radar until later on or is it a legit comp?
Brad Johnson
4:07
That's a ridiculous comp. I don't know where it's coming from.
Anthony

As a league manager in a competitive league...you're saying that IF two members in your league agreed on a "Mike Trout for Jed Lowrie" deal you'd kick one or both of them out? Would you veto that trade as well?
Brad Johnson
4:08
The guy getting Lowrie is probably gone. Trade would be rescinded and the roster locked until a new owner is brought up to speed
We have a manual trade recision process. They'd get a chance to say "oh wait" before I booted 'em
Crazy 8
4:09
Are you buying Eduardo Rodriguez? Think he outperforms Porcello RoS?
Brad Johnson
4:10
Yes and no. Injuries or something will get in the way of ERod keeping up this pace
Porcello is relatively safe, he's in the survivor land where injury rules don't apply in the same way
Carson
4:10
Thoughts on Story with him coming off the DL? You think he will be better?
Brad Johnson
4:10
He will have multiple 5 HR weeks per season
I'll say that much
Dunno about "better"
TP for my Byung Ho
4:11
Thoughts on using all of your bench spots for pitchers in a deep h2h league with holds? 8 active pitcher spots and 5 bench spots. I'm currently using all 8 for relievers with five really good starters.
Brad Johnson
4:11
That's one approach. There's no one-size-fits-all
As long as you're still carrying a couple offensive categories each week, you should do well
My own approach is to pump 80% of budget into pitching
James
4:11
is Benintendi/Keuchel/K. Morales for Encarnacion/Gattis a bad deal?
Brad Johnson
4:11
Yes
4:12
Benintendi should return the pair alone
dave in slc
4:12
so you think Watson is traded or rivero just better to make him a stash?
Brad Johnson
4:12
Watson will either asplode or get traded
Crazy 8
4:12
Grandal is a Top X catcher in dynasty OBP leagues?
Brad Johnson
4:12
Five
Ninja Black Sock
4:12
Ian Happ - go get him?
Brad Johnson
4:12
On the wire? Yes. From another owner? No.
Bruce
4:13
Can Clevinger be serviceable ROS, I mean at worst as a streamer?
Brad Johnson
4:13
Has aspects I like, but the command isn't good
he has clunkers in his future. That's a risk you take with any pitcher these days
KB
4:13
Hard to hold anymore faith in Cutch in my 10 teamer. Would you drop him to stash Starling Marte? OPS league.
Brad Johnson
4:14
If I'm going to drop him, I'd rather it be for an active player
