Is Bauer a hold in a 12-team, 25-man (9 P) league? Or is he simply a stream option? Top SPs on waivers are Smyly, Shoemaker, Chen, Shipley, Griffin.
Brad Johnson
2:46
He's same talent level as Smyly and Shoe
you can stream

Has Segura turned a corner this season? Is he a top 200 player going forward?
Brad Johnson
2:46
sure, put him in the top 200. Some will look at him as a top 100 which is going too far

AJ Reed start next year?
Brad Johnson
2:46
depends on the rest of this year and next spring and how he's doing in-season
My guess is...no
Daniel

Porcello finally a top 30 starter?
Brad Johnson
2:47
Not in a sustainable sense
doesn't have the Ks to pay for him at that rate
he has been a top 30 guy this year, top 40 next draft season.

Anything to see with Austin Hedges' AAA #s. Catcher-deprived in my keeper...
Brad Johnson
2:48
I'm a big Hedges fan. Made some adjustments which manifested in the power. Still, he has a hitter friendly environment
expect maybe Cameron Rupp-ish numbers

Pardon the repeat question but I guess my question got skipped in the jump to the present? In an NL only OBP league, who do you like better ROS: Parra or Pham? Thanks!
Brad Johnson
2:49
Tricky one
Parra's semi-blocked unless he goes to play 1B (or CarGo does)
Pham plays somewhat irregularly
I'll go with Pham, but my gut says I'm dumb to pick against Coors

Lucroy #1 catcher next year?
Brad Johnson
2:50
still Posey for me
Lucroy's always been a close second though
like him even more in the AL where he can DH instead of 1B
Mystery Team
2:50
Other side of the spectrum: I traded rich hill, he has thrown 5 pitches since

Could we get a Kipnis or Tulo article some time soon? Tulo has really been a lot better since the ASB, and Kipnis has just been really, really good all year, but no one seems to be talking about either player.
Brad Johnson
2:50
I'll ask folks on slack

Best SS rest of season between these: Jorge Polanco, Didi Gregorius, Jhonny Peralta, or Marcus Semien
Brad Johnson
2:51
Semien, Polanco/Gregorius, Peralta?
basically all the same asset class
very different distribution of stats though
so decide what numbers you need and target those
Dan

Drop Mccann for Contreras in a 10 team roto if I need avg?
Brad Johnson
2:52
I don't know that a 40 point bump in C AVG is going to move the needle
ok, time to wrap up
Nate
2:52
Jake Lamb a legit .270/ 30 HR threat moving forward?
Brad Johnson
2:52
yep
Stuck in a Slump
2:52
Any concern with Ozuna's slump the past 30 days?
Brad Johnson
2:53
sure, I've never had a good read on him as a player. Kept my distance as a result

12 team mixed, keep 7 - Giles($10) or Saunders ($10) worth keeping? - $360 cap, 25 man active roster, 7 bench
