I'd only make that trade if you're suffering at SS. If so, it's fine
4:16
I wouldn't stress too much over the auction implications. All budgets are manageable.

Are you seeing enough from Keon Broxton to start buying shares again? Assuming you were selling in the first place.
Brad Johnson
4:16
Mostly been stashing from the waiver wire. Then shinier bits drift past
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe
4:16
Still high on Kendall Graveman?
Brad Johnson
4:16
No, I said at the time that he might have me fooled for a third straight year. He fooled me again.
4:17
He may be marginally better than last year which is something. Means he's a younger Mike Leake in terms of stats
Minty

Are we overhyping Rosario for fantasy? Seems like a potentially very good real life player.
Brad Johnson
4:18
Very much agree with this sentiment. For Rosario to be a fantasy asset, he needs to play way beyond his minor league performances
However, that occurs more often than you'd think. See Judge, Aaron for an extreme, recent example
Dansby

I'm going to be fine right? SSS.....
Brad Johnson
4:19
Long term, yea. We always thought this could get ugly in 2017.
Braves fans need not worry. Redraft owners tho...
Blair

Joc or Conforto in OBP keeper? Both seem similar
Brad Johnson
4:19
Conforto by miles

Are SS less valuable in 10-12 team leagues now, because there are so many good ones? should I care much about position scarcity
Brad Johnson
4:19
The scarce positions are C, SP, and RP now
4:20
Especially in a 10-12 team format without MI/CI
StL Steve

In a 14 team 5x5 h2h, keep 15 forever where you're in a massive rebuild, would you trade Encarnacion and/Thames for prospects like Urias, Robles, Senzel etc ir would you want more?
Brad Johnson
4:20
Trade EE for one of them and keep Thames
Henry
4:20
Andrew Benintendi will win a batting title in the next 5 years. Reasonable?
Brad Johnson
4:20
So will Howie Kendrick
4:21
I mean sure. It passes a smell test. But there's always going to be that fluky guy who hits .340 while he bats .310
weezy
4:21
when people ask you generic value/trade questions, what is your default fantasy league? A 12 team 5x5 roto?
Brad Johnson
4:21
pretty much
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe
4:22
Over/under on five more big league starts for Jered Weaver this year? Career?

4:22

What does the Dodgers rotation look like next week? Does Wood make the cut?
Brad Johnson
4:24
Wood HAS to make the cut after these last few starts. He's looked so good. Better than Kershaw even.
moe
4:24
Late choice for this week only.5x5 mixed weekly 10tm. E Inciarte 5gms or Abreu 6gms Thanks
Brad Johnson
4:24
Inciarte
Sonny

what's your performance cutoff when deciding stream or keep in shallow leagues?
Brad Johnson
4:25
Tough to answer that in any helpful way, so many factors involved. For instance, I've been holding Jordan Montgomery while streaming Matt Boyd even though they're the same asset class
Rob
4:25
Does the 40% hard contact rate with Morton not make you hesitate with him or with all other peripherals are you riding with confidence ?
Brad Johnson
4:26
I've said this a few times, Morton's command tends to go sour in the middle innings. It's been less of a problem in the last two starts which may be an indication he's building stamina
weezy
4:26
I'm last in steals in a 14 teamer with obp... Hernan Perez is still out there. Is he better than Asdrubal or Jose Reyes?
Brad Johnson
4:26
I'd take him over banged up Asdrubal
Darth V
4:26
What current minor leaguer, other than Moncada, do you see making a big splash in the next month or so?
Brad Johnson
4:27
A lot of you are asking for minor league takes. I literally have nobody on my radar, including Moncada, Rhys Hoskins, and Austin Meadows. I don't anticipate any minor leaguer making a big splash this season
