Good talk

Brad would you start lackey tonight in h2h categories league? start of the early game makes me lean towards nooooo
Brad Johnson
4:03
No. Very no.

thoughts on Joey Gallo? Does he keep playing every day in June/beyond?
Brad Johnson
4:04
Getting a few Gallo questions. He's surprised me with his viability. I see no reason why they wouldn't keep trotting him out there in some capacity. The DH is currently whatever OF isn't starting
Byron
4:04
Am I ever going to turn it around? K rate down and BB rate up but I'm still not hitting.....
Brad Johnson
4:04
You've been hitting OKish lately
like 100 wRC+ quality
Sonny
4:05
Greg Bird dropped in my dynasty league, drop Bautista for him?
Brad Johnson
4:05
Get Bird, not positive Bautista is your best cut though. Surely, there's a lower quality asset on your roste.
Baryolo Cologne

QS IP league...Start Morton and Shark today right?
Brad Johnson
4:05
Ayup
Josh DC
4:06
So Shoe cuttable in my 12 team? picked up Morton to stream today but can drop Shoe instead to keep my streaming going... also have Velasquez...
Brad Johnson
4:06
I think so. That's how I'm using him. If someone else wants to sit on fantasy average numbers, fine by me
David
4:06
Does Shoemaker right the ship? BB/9 is over 4 so far this year. HRs are up too. Tough to hold in a 12 team league at this point.
Brad Johnson
4:06
Splitterballers are always going to be inconsistent
weezy
4:07
wow, Griffin's throwing 87 and getting whiffs...
Brad Johnson
4:07
Surprisingly, running a chat is counter productive to noticing any non-home runs
Moltar
4:07
If we were to redraft today, would Lindor be a first rounder?
Brad Johnson
4:08
Maybe not. Just because there are so many huge performers
Like, who's moved out of the 1st round? I can't really think of anyone. Correa?
That's about it

How many games per week will Reynolds play once Dahl returns, assuming he keeps hitting productively?
Brad Johnson
4:09
I'm not convinced Dahl will return straight to the MLB roster.
He'll be asked to rake in Triple-A again before he gets another chance. Or if injuries force a move
Remember, he has 68 PA in Triple-A
4:10
And the Rockies roster is effective as is. No sense pushing him into a tough role straight from injury
Jason

Are you materially worried about Miggy's health? He seems to battle through every year, but he ain't gettin younger
Brad Johnson
4:10
It's about time for VMart to get thrown to the curb so Miggy can stay on the field.
Once he's DH, I think he'll be fine
Zankou
4:11
In a 12-team h2h league, how many SPs actually warrant a permanent roster spot? Is it 30 and the rest are streamers? 40? 50? More?
Brad Johnson
4:11
It's tricky because there's an answer I'd like to be true, and then there's what you actually need to do for game theory purposes
4:12
I hate having to roster any one between replacement level and league average, but you must take a shot on some of them. Or spend 70% of your budget on SP. I actually did that in 2 leagues with great success so far
Chuck N Chino
4:12
why don't the CHW just play Matt Davidson and see what he can do? He HAS to be an upgrade over Asche, right? And if he does well, they deal Davidson.
Brad Johnson
4:13
He's certainly an upgrade, but I think his good results stem from smart usage
He's a fly ball hitter who can't make contact with bendy stuff
Turp
4:13
QS league...Stroman or Cahill?
Gabe
4:13
Morton or Cahill? I know u luv Mort but is Cahill making you believe?
Brad Johnson
4:14
Stroman is looking pretty iffy. I have faith he'll get it together eventually. If you need help now, Cahill looks sharper. I do still prefer Morton if only because Cahill's stuff and command are at least a full grade below his. Use 'em both if you can
Lightning
4:14
Two teams both contenders in an On base percentage keeper (keep 8 at price drafted). Can aquire Lindor ($23) for Bryant ($66). I'd be getting worse short term but have more money for auction draft next year. Bryant would go for around the same if not more so he'd be kept. Basically, as a championship contender, should I sacrifice some talent now for a better future situation?
