Breakout Stars..?

Brandon Drury, Danny Valencia?
Brad Johnson
1:14
What are you looking to accomplish? Valencia has more power and bats cleanup. Drury a better pure hitter
John
1:15
Yelich for Matz and Stroman. What side do you like? Only issue would be that I would need to find a SS off of waivers to replace Segura (Crawford/Semien are top options).
Brad Johnson
1:15
Not sure I understand where the SS comes in
But that's a fine trade if you need pitching
if you don't, then it's unnecessary

Should I trade
Brad Johnson
1:16
Sure

Thoughts on Billy Hamilton? Will he OBP enough to even be a worth bench option?
Brad Johnson
1:16
I've said all along, he's so hard to manage
but if his cost is down to mostly free, he's worth the headache
The Boss
1:16
What could I get for Duda in a 10-team dynasty?
Brad Johnson
1:17
Not very much. A bottom 10 closer, top 5 non-closer, John Lackey-type SP
Billy
1:17
Is Grichuk ok?
Brad Johnson
1:18
I think so, expectations were WAY too high entering the season. He's a nice player with upside but everybody treated him as actualized
Richard Simmons
1:18
Ken Giles is floating around in the free agent pool of my AL-only league right now. Should I be running out to grab him immediately?
Brad Johnson
1:18
I don't think you have to run. If you have a natural spot for him, he's a solid stash
Eric

How done is Prince Fielder? I was offered Porcello for him in a 12 team OPS league, but I can't make myself pull the trigger.
Brad Johnson
1:19
I was so happy for the dead cat bounce in my dynasty league last year. Turned him into three useful players
I think his goose is cooked. Look at Carlos Lee for how his body type usually ages
in short, rapidly
Steve
1:20
So my offense is awesome, auction league 2h2 (Harper, Machado, Cespedes, Ortiz, etc...) but my pitching is atrocious (Scherzer, Keuchel, Archer, Mcchugh, Gausman). Should I just punt the pitching ratios and chase Ks and QS and trade Max for more hitting?
Brad Johnson
1:20
No, dump McHugh, find a buyer for Gausman (somebody in your league likes him more than they should), and shop the two broken aces
1:21
but you probably hang onto Keuchel and Archer
try to rehabilitate the pitching
Charlotte the bassador

time to pull the plug on Rusell Martin? OBP league... Any love for Wieters, Cervelli, Montero, Derek Norris, Satly, Wolters (for the speed?)
Brad Johnson
1:22
I'm a huge Cervelli fan. He's a top 5? 8? C
He's near the top in any case
Jeet

Thoughts on Ian Kinsler rest of the season? Top 5 2B in mixed leagues?
Brad Johnson
1:22
If healthy, he's near the top of the pile. So many good 2B though that health will be a big factor
Matt
1:23
I got until 6 pm CST to make the swap - 1 Start McCullers (TEX) or 2-start Miley (BAL & CIN)? QS/ERA/WHIP/K
Brad Johnson
1:23
*cringe*
is neither an option?
if not, I guess Miley is the only answer. Might get a QS or two
McCullers probably doesn't throw more than 5+ IP

Hey Brad, Who are a few of the minors hitters that you are stashing for MLB roles before ASB? Please do not include the Astros.
Brad Johnson
1:25
My home league (12 team mixed, 30 player rosters, 7 BN) has Dansby Swanson, Andrew Benintendi, Reed, and Bregman.
So I didn't follow instructions and included Astros
not sure why you'd leave them out, they're going to supply a bunch of the top pre-ASB talent
Glasnow, Taillon, and Brault in PIT
