if Jose Reyes isn't done, he's in Jimmy Rollins land
i.e. nearly done

What can I get for Dee Gordon now? What could I expect int terms of performance when he returns?
Brad Johnson
2:19
I can't speak to what he's doing to remain in game shape, so it's hard to speculate about what he'll do RoS
you could probably get a slightly better than waiver wire quality player now. like Robbie Grossman
wait 3 more weeks and you can trade him at near full price

Texas closer showdown! Who has more value ROS, Dyson or Harris?
Brad Johnson

Dyson
2:20
I always called him a poor mans Zach Britton. Now he's pitching for strikeouts so he's just a Britton clone

When Reddick comes off DL I need to decide between him, Belt, and Harrison to drop. I could try to trade one of them or Cain/Myers. What would you do? 12 team roto
Brad Johnson
2:20
Well the answer isn't to cut Belt
2:21
I'm guessing you need Harrison's utility
so that probably leaves Reddick on the outside unless you can pull off a 2-for-1
I'd try to before Reddick's back

Will Cutch rebound this year?
Brad Johnson
2:21
Probably. But it is getting scary
Oddbal Herrera

Assuming it happens if you were to guess Buxton's first 'monster' fantasy year what would you say? 2017? 2018? Farther?
Brad Johnson
2:22
I'll say 2018 or never
maybe mid-2017

When is the "right" time to trade away a stud in a dynasty league? I'm trying to win this year, so I'm not really looking to move Scherzer right now, but he'll be 32 in a month and not getting any younger, so I'm kinda thinking about trying to cash in on him before it's too late to get a huge haul in return.
Brad Johnson
2:23
I'd look to trade Scherzer with another player for somebody even better.
I hate disaggregating if my team is already good.

So I grabbed Willlson Contreras b/c I had waiver priority, but I feel set at C w/ Realmuto and Martin (12-team 5x5, play two starting catchers). What kind of return should I expect from Contreras? Or am I better off moving one of the other guys?
Brad Johnson
2:24
Contreras really isn't going to play much this year. If you're in a keeper, maybe try to move Martin and put up with 2 games a week from Contreras. Otherwise, find a Cubs fan to take Contreras.

Grin and Barrett
Do you think Jake Barrett or Silvino Bracho could step in ahead of Clippard and Hudson if Ziegler is injured/replaced as closer?
Brad Johnson
2:25
not likely. not impossible

What is Urias outlook for the rest of the year? Also, will he be babied like this forever?
Brad Johnson
2:25
He's getting babied because he is, in fact, an infant
2:26
without confirming his exact numbers, he probably has 40 IP left, so 8 starts?
no postseason work for him

Is Stroman droppable in a 14-team redraft? I feel like I could stream the spot better than he's been pitching.
Brad Johnson
2:26
possibly. I've been holding in a 12 teamer (regrettably)
Dan

I have 6 closers in a 10 team roto. Chapman, Allen, Harris, Zigler, Kelly and Rodriguez. I need more starting pitching and no one wants to trade. Who should I drop?
Brad Johnson
2:27
Ziegler to start
at least you have Chapman to balance his K/9, but he singlehandedly kills that stat
Friend

Is David Peralta worth holding on to right now in 14 team league? Keeps getting dinged up and not really moving the needle when healthy
Brad Johnson
2:28
I think so, but I also think you can move on for the right guy.

Given Weiters' rest requirements....does it make sense to snare Caleb Joseph off waivers? Yes he's hurt but catching is brutal and my current guys are Navarro and Gomes. 10-team AL-only keeper
Brad Johnson
2:28
Makes plenty of sense in that format
