I could, but why? What you really need to know is how they relate to aces who aren't struggling
and that's not something I can do for you mid-chat
I prefer Lester fwiw
Matt Harvey
4:27
Any reason I would give you optimism?
Brad Johnson
4:28
Maybe the crazy HR/FB ratio regresses hard?
Or, a completely different take on the question, Harvey's scuffles have increased my joy in the world, thereby increasing my optimism in my fellow man
Mets fans are the worst when it comes to overtouting their players
4:30
Too many bar conversations to the effect of... "when we get Harvey back bro, nobody gonna beat us. We'll have Thor, and the Dark Knight, and that Jizzleman"

Alonso or Bell, ROS?
Brad Johnson
4:30
Please
Alonso by 4 standard deviations

After Harper, my offensive picks in the draft were Miggy, Story, Lucroy (2 C league), Kinsler, and Longo in that order. Do I have any hope going forward, or am I going to remain relegated in my roto cellar?
Brad Johnson
4:31
Ah, I feel for you. My one struggling team is my 20 team dynasty league where we have Miggy, Donaldson, and Story as our offensive foundation
4:32
Keep plugging away
remember, it's only been less than a third of a season
you'll need some luck, but you aren't dead in the water yet

Is Godley a streamer or rosterable?
Brad Johnson
4:33
Depends on format. I'm rostering him in 12 team

Who do you like better as a keeper over a 3 year horizon in a standard 5x5 league - Mazara, C. Dickerson, or Haniger? Can you rank them?
Brad Johnson
4:33
I think you've done it
manny
4:34
Is Edwin Encarnacion still a top tier 1b?
Brad Johnson
4:34
No
Scuba Steve
4:34
Bellinger comp? Marcell Ozuna.
Brad Johnson
4:34
I kind of like that one

Early Schebler question got me thinking. Trumbo or Schebler ROS?
Brad Johnson
4:34
I'm not so good with Trumbo. I picked him to win the HR crown... in 2015
4:35
last year, I said he was a scrub
I jumped back on board this year (luckily, zero shares outside some burnt DFS money)
Joey
4:35
There are too many OFs... what does one do with guys like Kevin Pillar or Aaron's Hicks, who seem to be breaking out, but might not keep things going at this pace. Are they droppable in a 10-team, 3OF league?
Brad Johnson
4:35
Yes, that format is stupidly shallow
Nickels
4:36
AGon or Smoak ROS?
Brad Johnson
4:36
This is a legit difficult question. I'll bet on Smoak's improved contact. Bail if you see the K's coming back
Crazy 8
4:36
When is Castellanos's batted ball quality going to result in...well, results??
Brad Johnson
4:36
We've been waiting a couple years now...

Jake Arrieta a good buy low target? Thoughts on his ROS?
Brad Johnson
4:37
I like it, so long as you are buying low
He has 3 bad starts
