They both solid mid-order guys

Do you believe Lucas Giolito is a keeper in a keep 6? Do you think he will start next year in the Nats rotation?
Brad Johnson
2:37
Sounds to shallow to be keeping him
Giolito is a project for fantasy owners. Expect the breakout to take time
Aaron Sanchez can be used as a yard stick
Kevin

Dahl vs Benintendi: Which would you keep for 2 years and which for 5 years? 12 team, roto, with limited keepers.
Brad Johnson
2:37
Dahl and Dahl
it's all about Coors Field
2:38
I'm going to skip to the present for the stretch run of the chat. Less volume today than usual so I went in order up to now
Stannis

Does Blake Snell start next season in Rays rotation? If so, how do you see him doing next year
Brad Johnson
2:39
Definitely, pending health
It's a tough division - rich teams, bad matchups, worse ballparks
I'll say 4.00 ERA, good K rate, some meltdowns, some gems

Brad, do you have any hope for Cashner for this year or next? Eno's latest The Change article has his fastball looking really bad.
Brad Johnson
2:40
Cashner flashed for a brief moment at the deadline, but it was the proverbial flash in the pan
I've been out on Cashner for years. Nothing's changed aside from the occasional spot start
Daren

What's a good trade return for Danny Salazar this offseason? I think I can still market him as a good #2.
Brad Johnson
2:41
yea that's how I'll be marketing him
we'll see what happens starting Thursday and on
Bjorn
2:41
What's a reasonable return in a trade right now for Puig in a dynasty format?
Brad Johnson
2:41
Fortunately, I've divested myself of Puigs
I have no hope for his future
2:42
no contact skills, no power, no speed, I just don't get what he has to work with
it started as plus quality of contact and modest power, but that's gone
you have to find somebody who still believe he can breakout then pretend you still love puig too
2:43
maybe then you can get a decent mid-tier player. Can also go for a big older name like Bautista
Kevin
2:43
I have both Segura and Odor in my 14-team keeper. Which profile would you rather have at 2B for the next 3-5 years?
Brad Johnson
2:43
Odor
And I'm not a big Odor advocate - there's a lot about his game I don't like
I see Segura's 2016 as 110% of his ceiling
He'll usually be more like his 2015
Ya Habibi
2:44
Start Strasburg in Colorado tomorrow?
Brad Johnson
2:44
Do ya need to? It could work. It might not. #Analysis
So decide if you really need those innings
Stuck in a Slump
2:44
Grandal has been hitting the absolute crap out of the ball lately, is this some natural regression given how much harder he seems to hit the ball than the average hitter, or is it just a hot streak to ignore?
Brad Johnson
2:45
He's not going to keep hitting at this rate, but you shouldn't ignore it
he's a really good hitter in his own unique way
Pete
2:45
Is Zimmer starting for Cleveland in 2017?
Brad Johnson
2:45
Pending his Sept. call up
which is pending healing from this finger injury
