Alrighty, let's kick this off. I'll be right back with some water.

With the way the Mets are handling Conforto Is he easily droppable in a 10 player keep 20 league?
Brad Johnson
1:47
For the present season, sure. But he's going to be one of your top 20 keepers.

What would the best process be for turning my current keeper league, that for the first 5 years of existence has done snake drafts, into an auction draft?
Brad Johnson
1:49
This can be complicated. There are a few ways to go about it, and discussing them would entail a full article. My recommendation for the path of least resistance is to have a "final" snake season then start fresh with an auction. Remind me in the offseason and I'll post a full article on some options.

My 18 team keeper league, where you can keep 12 players for 5 years has a franchise tag option, where you can apply a franchise tag to a player to extend the keep-ability for an extra 2 years, but once you use it you cannot tag anyone for 3 year. Would it be best to use it on Kershaw this year (round 1 of 22 keeper) or wait until next year for Arenado (round 10 (if current production holds) of 22)?
Brad Johnson

I wouldn't use it on Kershaw.

As much as he's a league winner, all pitchers eventually succumb to injury

Just gave up 5 years of Giolito and Luke Weaver to get 4 years of M. Fulmer. How’d I do considering I’m sitting in a playoff spot right now?
Brad Johnson
1:50
With news that Fulmer might be limited down the stretch, I probably prefer the pair. I don't hate it though, either side could win long term and you should come out ahead this year.

The Yankees seem to have a lot of options for their 2017 starting outfield. Which three guys do you anticipate being out there on opening day next season?
Brad Johnson
1:51
Ells, Judge, and Gardner is my first guess
JD15

Is Adam Warren a reliable RP again? And is he the 8th inning guy the rest of the season?
Brad Johnson
1:51
Ok JD, you're cut off
I'm not sure re: Warren. Probably 7th inning
George is Curious

Can you name a few American League rookies that have yet to be called up, but still might make an impact this season?
Brad Johnson
1:52
I need a moment to remind myself of who qualifies here, brb
Zimmer is the biggest imo
1:53
Gurriel, Vogelbach, maybe Jharel Cotton or Raul Alcantera

Eickoff, Bundy, Musgrove, Kazmir - need to lose one of these for a streaming spot. Kaz?
Brad Johnson

Eickhoff

How would you react to initiating the same trade twice(the trade timed out both times) and having it open for 10 days and no response from the person you are trying to trade with? You can also tell that the person received an email regarding each trade as hasn’t even modified their roster in 30 days. Is this something you would bring to the attention of the Commissioner of the league? And how should they handle this?
Brad Johnson
1:54
Ignoring your offer either means they think it's terrible or they're not there. If they also aren't editing their lineup, then they're probably not there.
Tell the commish if they need to be replaced.
1:55
I routinely ignore especially bad offers for the max just so the owner in question thinks I might be considering it
Josh
1:55
Are Justin Upton and Michael Saunders worth holding onto in 12 teamers, or would streaming those hitter spots be better at this point?
Brad Johnson
1:55
Might be better with a stream at this point
depends on the options
Please Help

I'm in an 11-team AL-only and it's the slimmest of pickings off the wire in terms of SP. However, I'm desperate right now and need to choose two of the following: Shields, Duffey, Caminero, Sabathia and M. Perez. Can you find two in there that won't make me regret adding them? Any advice you can provide is greatly appreciated.
Brad Johnson
1:56
You're going to regret needing these guys
I haven't looked beyond tomorrow's matchups yet - but if any of them have good ones, they're the guy to pick.
i.e. weak NL rosters, Rays, or A's

Hello! What is your expectation for Yuriesky Gurriel's upside, both for ROS and for next year? Recently dealt him for Moose and Mazara
Brad Johnson
1:57
Fantastic trade, huge steal
Dae-ho Lee was a name I used earlier today as an upside scenario
the truth, we don't really know
1:58
anyone who says they know better have personally scouted every one of his games for he Astros
matt

Does Vizcaino close when back? And is he an okay RP3?
Brad Johnson
1:58
yep and yep
small chance Johnson holds on for IP management purposes
