That might be a good spot to open the betting - somewhere around #75-100.
Where was Marcus Stroman this year?

If chasing counting cats in H2H playoffs (HR, R, RBI, SB, W, K) how would you be splitting up 6 bench spots between SPs and (say) mon/thurs game hitters. Daily moves and 2x week waiver adds.
Brad Johnson
2:20
Assess the opponent first
obviously you want to target actually vulnerable stats
as an extreme example, if they had 6 Kershaw, you probably go after saves and all the hitting cats
2:21
there isn't an ideal split in a vacuum, just depends on opponent, your roster, and who has 2 starts that week
and matchups

Hi Brad. Could you put an AL-Only price on next year's Xander Bogey? Thanks
Brad Johnson
2:21
That would be a very blind shot in the dark
2:22
I haven't made an AL-Only sheet in several years.
Maybe try Paul on Thursday

Holding onto Ryan Dull is getting rather....Dull. Should I keep hanging onto him in the event he gets some saves the rest of the season? Or keep him into next year at the minimum ($3)
Brad Johnson
2:22
Doesn't look like they plan to get him saves this year. I'm sure the plan is for Doolittle to take the job once he's healthy

What kind of numbers am I posting in 2017?
Brad Johnson
2:22
good ones?
2:23
I'll say 15/12 with a .290/.350/.450 slash
just to be conservative
if he's playing every day, he almost has to outperform those counting stats
2:24
but the every day bet might not work out

jd martinez at $27 or david peralta at $9? 16 team 5x5, playing/keeping for next year
Brad Johnson
2:24
JDM for me
fool me once
2:24
are we really trusting Davis to come back and close effectively again this year? I have to activate him immediately when Royals do and Herrera would be my only dropper...
Brad Johnson
2:24
Oh I'm not
that's a painful situation. I'd bet on the healthy guy
Patrick

Time to move on from Shoemaker? Strikeouts down, hits and ERs up. Starting to panic. 10 tm AL Keeper
Brad Johnson
2:25
I'm starting to be concerned too. He's lost the feel for his splitter in the past...

Need an Of in 20 team points league: Go with Austin, or more estblashied guy like Grandy, Gardner or C. Dickerson?
Brad Johnson
2:25
Austin or Grandy

My league does a hybrid auction/snake, where the top 20 non-kept players are auctioned off and then everybody else gets drafted with a set salary. A pretty good compromise system.
Brad Johnson
2:26
That's in reference to an earlier question about transitioning from snake to auction. There are a thousand ways to set up a hybrid. Requires a lot of manual commish work on most sites

Keeping Mazara for next year...What do you think of Mazara as a OF2 in mixed leagues going forward? Could we see .300 and 30 soon? Decent lineup and park so should have good counting R/RBI as well I'd hope.
Brad Johnson
2:27
The GB profile is a little bit like Yelich-lite.
Not sure we'll see 30 HR
Otherwise, yea, I expect big things out of the middle of the lineup

With the promotion of Austin/shuffling of McCann's time behind the dish, does Greg Bird get significant playing time in NY next season (assuming healthy)?
Brad Johnson
2:28
Yea they probably find him time. Austin is playing now to assess how to use him later, not because he's already locked up a long term role
Ryan

Should I be running out to pick up Jharel Cotton in my AL-only league right now?
Brad Johnson
2:28
Not sure I'd run but if I had an open spot...
Moltar

Traded for Cabrera at the deadline (which was sunday), he immediately gets hurt monday. No question, I just want to tell somebody who might a little bit care.
