Dynasty league. Win now mode. Looking for MR with Ks and ratios and shot at saves. Been offered oh if I give up kilome and cease. Yay or nay
Brad Johnson
2:07
I haven't put much research into Cease so it's hard to say. Oh has a decent shot at getting some saves. Feels like Siegrist is first in line. Haven't check in on their bullpen for a week
Ironically, the FanGraphs weekend in NYC meant that I haven't watched any baseball since last Tuesday. Been doing my best to keep up on my phone

I'm living 20 minutes in the past, so I'm skipping up to 2:05

If Jeanmar Gomez gets injured today, who closes for the Phillies tomorrow?
Brad Johnson
2:09
Hector Neris still. David Hernandez maybe 30% shot. Should be Hernandez if they're looking for trade assets.

Drop Maikel Franco for Justin Turner for my 3B slot in 10-team redraft, or is that a bridge too far?
Brad Johnson
2:09
no, go ahead and do it

How do you see Peter O'Brien's playing time ROS? Seems like Chip Hale is incredibly irritating when it comes to allocating playing time. If you are going to call the guy up, play him consistently and see how he does! If you are not willing to do that, don't call him up!
Brad Johnson

The DBacks are visiting Toronto right now. Unless they have another away interleague soon, I'd expect O'Brien to be optioned after the series

True or False – Tyson Ross finishes the season as a member of the Padres?
Brad Johnson
2:10
True
hard to trade an injured pitcher
Seth
2:10
best speculative reliever: neris, will smith, oh, siegrist, or dark horse michael lorenzen?
Brad Johnson
2:10
Smith or Raisel Iglesias
if you're looking for dark horse reds

In a keeper forever league, trade springer and mazara for Harper?
Brad Johnson
2:11
oh, that's a tough one. I'd be scared on either side of that one
smells fair to me

Ozzie Albies for Jorge Soler in a dynasty?
Soler Array
2:11
Is Jorge Soler a Cub until the end of the year?
Brad Johnson
2:12
I really don't care for Soler. He's a 4th outfielder. The Cubs think he's a 4th outfielder too. It's why they signed Fowler (and Victorino before him)
2:13
Albies could be a better Elvis Andrus or a worse Alcides Escobar. That's you range of likely outcomes
So...you could make that trade, especially if you don't agree with my opinion of Soler

In a dynasty league that heavily weights batting average, would you trade Lindor for either of Mazara or Meadows?
Brad Johnson
2:13
Nope.
But throw in a decent plus to Mazara and I'm there
The Farthammer
2:14
giolito + urias = what tier pitcher in ten-team dynasty
Brad Johnson
2:14
top tier non-Kershaw
Robert Duvall
2:14
If Duvall ends the season hitting .240 with 40 HR, would he be a top 20 hitter in an NL only 5x5?
Brad Johnson
2:14
yes, pending run production

Wondering why you see Nola as a 3.35 ERA guy? Currently FIP at 3.05 and xFIP at 2.80...Is it the velo, or is there another/additional reason for your skepticism?
Brad Johnson
2:15
Stuff doesn't really support a strikeout rate above 9,00 K/9.
Stephen Strasburg
2:15
Would you trade me for Josh Donaldson in 12 team mixed?
Brad Johnson
2:15
Yea, sure.
Giant Steps
2:15
If Santiago Casilla gets injured, who is the best bet to get saves among Law, Gearrin and Strickland?
Brad Johnson
2:16
I've been trying to figure that out for awhile. I want to say Strickland but I think it's Gearrin.
I need water, I'll be back
The Farthammer
2:18

Brad Johnson
2:18
