The chat is go. Exciting operational notes first...
1:45
I am without my usual dual monitor setup so please be patient with slower responses
And I just finished writing about Ryan Schimpf for a dynasty column so feel free to ask :)

When do we see Bregman? Would the Astros really call up Reed first?
Brad Johnson
1:46
So the latest speculation is that Bregman will play in the Double-A AS game then get promoted. I think somebody just made that up honestly.
No idea what their actual plans are

How bad would the Dodgers be without Kershaw?
Brad Johnson
1:46
About as bad as the Angels are now. It's a top heavy town.

Talk to me about Daniel Mengden, Johnson my man. His command looked terrific against Texas last week.
Brad Johnson
1:47
Eno was really talking him up to me over the weekend. I haven't really watched him yet but the peripherals read as a plausible mid-rotation guy
and he was somebody I was tracking for statistical reasons before the call up
Linus

Maikel Franco still a hold in 10-team?
Brad Johnson
1:48
Redraft? You can probably do better. I do think he'll develop into what we expected eventually
Billy

I own Aaron Judge in a dynasty league, where do I go from here? Try to get value now or hope he turns it around
Brad Johnson
1:48
You should always be trying to get value on your dynasty prospects. I even try to sell prospects when I'm rebuilding. The key is not trading anyone decent for peanuts
1:49
so yea, if you can get a real, good MLB player for Judge+, go ahead and do it
if not, ride it out

Just traded Desmond for Buxton and Glasnow in a dynasty. I'm happy.
Brad Johnson
1:49
Congrats. Sounds like it's probably a win-win assuming that guy is mid-contention

Not in contention in a keep 3 12 5X5 league. Already aquired stanton, do you see anybody else who could be nice buy lows for this year and keepable for the next year?
Brad Johnson
1:50
That's going to be hard to finagle. Your best bet is probably to trade all of your good players for a 1st round talent
in the kind of deal that makes everybody extremely angry
1:51
are you really sure you're not in contention? People throw the towel way too early
Chris

How low does it go with James Shields? Drop him for Kyle Gibson in AL Only?
Brad Johnson
1:52
Well, I like Gibson's start tomorrow, but I wouldn't use him otherwise. Not sure I'd ever use Shields either. Maybe grab the Gibson spot then snag a multi-inning reliever like Erasmo or Andriese
Mel

Justin Turner: legit breakout or just a hot streak?
Brad Johnson
1:52
Since he was excellent the last two seasons, I'll happily call this real without consulting the numbers

Nomar Mazara. Top 100 guy for keep-forever leagues? Better than that (pretty please say yes)?
Brad Johnson
1:52
hell yes
1:53
I entered the season with him as a top 50 asset
his performance has to have him pushing top 30
Gorky
1:53
Keep the faith with Aaron Nola, or are the wheels coming off?
Brad Johnson
1:53
well, here's the thing, he was never a 2.XX ERA pitcher. He's a solid 3.35 ERA guy on a team with no run support
Yankees Fan

What are the chances Profar/Gallo get traded to the Yankees for Miller/Chapman?
Brad Johnson
1:54
very low
but I think the Yankees could get Mark Zagunis and Dan Vogelbach from the Cubs

I have been stashing Zunino for a while in my AL Keeper, should I keep being patient or cut bait? My current C is Ianetta...
Brad Johnson
1:54
Depends on opportunity cost, but I have spare patience for Zunino
Billy
1:55
I'm in a league with 25 man MLB rosters and 25 man MiLB rosters. I'm in contention currently... Prospects that aren't going to get called September worth moving regardless of who they are, or are guys like Benintendi worth holding?
Brad Johnson
1:55
Depending on the number of owners, that's intense. And the keeper rules matter. But I'd look into trading Benintendi for a monster of some kind.
