My worst of these happened last year. I had all the pitching and needed hitting
traded Kerhsaw for Stanton
Three days later...

Where do you see Dylan Bundy being ranking among SPs to start 2017?
Brad Johnson
2:29
Probably higher than he should be. The hype machine has always liked him
Probably around wherever Fulmer and Musgrove wind up
2:30
still a lot of baseball to left to change all that
El Chubbito

Raisel Iglesias is the guy in the Cincy ninth, no?
Brad Johnson
2:30
I can't figure out what they're doing
I mean he's obviously their best reliever
it's glaringly obvious
it's like choosing between Chapman and Spaceman Lee
2:31
but...I thought the idea was to leave him out of the ninth so there wouldn't be a controversy a la Chapman
Remember, Chapman was always supposed to go back to starting
but he was so good at closing that he just couldn't be moved
2:32
Plus Iglesias has already succeeded as a starter so there should be less pain in transitioning back

Joey Gallo was dropped in my AL-only dynasty league. Is he a must-add anymore?
Brad Johnson
2:32
in a dynasty, probably
just remember he's a lotto ticket
you may wind up wanting a surer thing later

So are we looking at Teoscar making Houston's 2017 starting lineup?
Brad Johnson
2:32
outside chance. Based on roster comp now, sure
2:33
but I assume they buy a real CFer
hernandez looks like an ideal 3.5 OFer to me
there are a lot of questions to answer about Houston's roster and they're all interrelated
2:34
If Gurriel sticks, then Bregman's pushed to LF, which means Kemp/Teoscar/Marisnick and gang up on CF
if Gurriel sucks, then Bregman stays at 3B
or something could happen at the 1B logjam
Correa might get moved to 3B for Bregman to go to SS
2:35
Basically, we know Altuve is the 2B
I'm not your buddy, Guyer
2:35
Weird question. I'm #1 in hitting, middling in pitching and down to my last 5 transactions in my deep H2H league where I know I'll get streamed against in the playoffs. Currently stashing Gurriel. Better off holding onto him or dropping for 1 of: Bud Norris, Kuhl, C. Green, or T. Khoeler?
Brad Johnson
2:35
Hold those moves until they're most important

Who's your early top 3 fantasy players for next year's draft?
Brad Johnson
2:35
Trout, Altuve, Betts
not positive on the order yet
2:36
Probably the two OF first
then a bunch of #B
3B*
