MOON ball
Now, to clarify, some minor leaguers are going to come to the majors and go wild. It will happen. But in a predictable sense like Benintendi or Bregman last year, I'm just not seeing anyone

Traded Trumbo for Salazar? 16 team 6x6 h2h league (OPS & Holds). How's I do??
Brad Johnson
4:30
I like it. I'm telling people my SP are worth more than comparably talented hitters. I can find a billion hitters on the wire. Yonder Alonso JUST getting picked up even though I've owned him since week 1. LoMo still ignored entirely
So I'm keen to convert Trumbos into Salazars

Sell Aaron Judge to get Adrian Beltre in 12 tm H2H? Looking for more reliable playoff option
Brad Johnson
4:31
Uh, no.
Super old Beltre needs to show he's in top form before meriting that kind of consideration. Treat Judge as a 2nd round talent
A rich man's Giancarlo
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe

Zach Britton dropped. Have a full DL, but in theory have an open roster spot that I use for streamers. I *have* to grab him, right?
Brad Johnson
4:32
Yes, I think so
Unless you're flush on saves, then weep for the lost opportunity and move on
KD
4:32
Do i sell low on Villar for Lamb or hold on?
Brad Johnson
4:32
I'm ok with that if you're fine with SB
Kenton
4:33
Danny Duffy was just dropped in our 10-teamer. Still worth an every day roster spot (as opposed to a streamer) in a league this shallow?
Brad Johnson
4:33
eh...that's a guy who lives in that space between worth a spot and actually available on the wire
Moelicious
4:33
Thoughts on Aaron Nola? He is out there in a lot of leagues
Brad Johnson
4:33
Same deal with Nola.
The Kyd

I think the pitch to Gallo took longer to get to the plate than Gallo's homer took to leave the yard.
Brad Johnson
4:33
I don't know. It was almost too high. Really couldn't get any higher and leave the park
4:34
:grin:
Y'all think Mat Latos is worse than Weaver or Bronson

Are there any minor leaguers *off* your radar that you think might make a big splash this season?
Brad Johnson
4:35
Excellent question. I'll alert a technician to update my radar
Adam
4:35
How do you rank Matt Moore, Joe Ross, Perdomo for ROS?
Brad Johnson
4:36
Ok, I'll bite. Adam's asked me a good dozen times about these three. I don't have any insights into Moore and Ross except to say that Moore is effectively wild at his best and Ross never had a good starter's profile
Perdomo is interesting in a long term sense. Lots of ground balls and enough whiffs to be something. Just need to polish some aspects of his usage
Not sure he'll ever be a good option in 2017, but keep him in the back of your mind
Nerle

Aaron Hicks 10-team good?
Brad Johnson
4:37
Finally! I've been waiting for some version of this question
I noticed that other day that Hicks has top 10 worst soft contact and below average hard contact. That tells me the bad kind of regression is coming
4:38
beyond just saying his video game numbers aren't sustainable in reality
So no, I'd pass on Hicks
KD
4:38
buy low on sonny gray in a dynasty?
Brad Johnson
4:38
How low? I'll give ya Sam Dyson. Maybe Guillermo Heredia.
Willie Mays Hayes
4:39
Have Ryan Zimmerman in a 10-teamer but need starting pitching. In order to get a sense of value, what do you think is a fair one-for-one deal?
Brad Johnson
4:39
Less than Chris Sale, more than Danny Salazar.
I'd be pushing Kluber or Arrieta at you. Flawed aces.
