They're probably trying to "contend"

Odubel Herrera was rated fairly high by FG staff as OF. Do you feel he is underperforming or is this who he is?
Brad Johnson
4:51
Mostly who he is. He'll be maybe 10% better RoS
his numbers are fine and he has a nice role. It's just that everybody is hitting at a 50 HR pace
Chico

Stras + X = Miggy. Solve for X
Brad Johnson

Xavier Cedeno?
Xander Bogaerts is too much
I think that's a pretty even swap while he remains banged up and unproductive
4:53
you'll obviously have to pay more if you prefer to wait for him to perform first

Pujols/Vargas for Pollock/Manaea, who ya got?
Brad Johnson

Pollock by a landslide

So my staff has McCullers, Ray, Pineda and Salazar. In related news, I lead the league in both Ks and high blood pressure. Which guy do you think I should look to move for some better rates stability?
Brad Johnson
4:55
I think you try to find Chris Devenski, Andrew Miller, or other ratios stablizing RP. Keep the indigestion
Erick

What's your outlook on Jon Gray in dynasty leagues? Good buy-low opportunity?
Brad Johnson
4:55
Sure, if someone is actually selling low
Blackmon, Charlie
4:55
Hey Brad. Am I going to steal more bases than I get caught stealing?
Brad Johnson
4:55
Well yea, but you're not going to steal very many bases. Why are you running anyway, your offense is too good
Joey
4:56
Follow up: would you rank Pomeranz, Robbie Ray and Alex Wood?
Brad Johnson
4:56
Ah, that's hard, they're all the same asset class
Wood will throw the fewest innings most likely
Ok, time for me to wrap this up
Steve
4:56
Do you think Lucroy will turn it around?
Brad Johnson
4:57
Yes, I'm sticking with him
Paul Newman
4:57
David Price is gonna kill it when he comes back. I feel it.
Brad Johnson
4:57
Ok
Adam
4:57
Do the Phillies let it ride on Altherr in the OF when Howie K returns (and potentially let Howie give Joseph a break at 1b)?
Brad Johnson
4:57
I'll be disgruntled if Altherr doesn't continue to play every day. He may be their best player
Tony

Paul dejong is looming in triple A playing shortstop for the red birds. Is he playing 3rd this year for the cardinals?
Brad Johnson
4:58
Not so long as Gyorko and Wong continue hitting well. Jhonny will be back some day too and Greg Garcia is solid.
bargain hunter
4:59
JBJ vs. Peraza. Same asset class?
Brad Johnson
4:59
No, JBJ tops
Todd Frazier

mmm hmm
Greg

Are the Tigers and D-Backs really going to try to run K-Rod and Rodney out there all season and hope nobody notices?
Brad Johnson
4:59
Seems like it
Just saying...
4:59
If Justin Verlander takes Kate Upton's last name, he'll be Justin Upton.
