Paredes had terrible contact skills though

Man is it fun watching Reddick struggle since I dropped him in dynasty and everyone else is picking him up for a few days at a pop.
Brad Johnson
12:42
I like Josh Reddick :(
you see this sometimes with trades, it's an overlooked issue
adjusting to a new city/role/team is not easy for everyone
12:43
you go from comfortable and relaxed to under pressure to prove yourself
some guys are unfazed. Others struggle
I thought that was happening with Jason Heyward this year
last year he was bad for awhile then flipped the switch
no switch this year

Start Musgrove tonight in an innings-capped league where a QS, Ks and W is needed badly?
Brad Johnson
12:44
Without knowing your opportunity cost, probably
if you're bumping somebody good from a Sunday start to do it, maybe not

ROS Kepler or Thompson?
Brad Johnson

Kepler
More playing time and I like his ability to keep adjusting
another bad dynasty manager

Deep league question: need to choose between Whalen , Miranda and Gant to keep for the remainder of the playoffs (if I survive the first round). I like Whalen. Wins don't matter.
Brad Johnson
12:45
I'll go look a little closer because those guys are unownable in my 900 players rostered league
12:46
On talent, I'd go with Miranda. I don't think Whalen can maintain his strikeout rate with his stuff
but isn't Miranda getting bumped with the return of Walker and Paxton?
I think so

re: streaming to replace stras, we have a 4 transaction and a 12 start per week limit, which makes pure streaming a bit tricky.
Brad Johnson
12:46
This was the first question
12:47
I'd still use that spot as a streamer rather than sitting on Yordano or similar
even if you just get one start and a Thursday hitter out of it
Eastern NC
12:48
Who do you like for the next three years, Gurriel or Soler! Pick a cuban!
Brad Johnson
12:48
I'm quite famously a Soler-denier, but I have to go with youth over old guy
by the way, that was the last question sent at 12:32
12:49
Took 18 minutes to wade through the first 2 of questions
Joey

If you're making H2H playoffs in dynasty with a short bench, do you use your last roster spot for a nice-to-have like a top-flight reliever or for a high upside prospect like Tapia or Dom Smith? Flags fly forever and all but the nice-to-haves only nudge the percentages up by a bit...
Brad Johnson
12:49
You have to read your situation
Josh
12:49
Do you think Ramos eventually assumes the closing gig again in Miami?
Brad Johnson
12:49
Yes
No additional analysis
12:50
the Marlins do want to replace him long term, but I feel like the plan is to trade him before he plays his way out of the role
Pete
12:50
Jake Lamb has really been struggling. Reason to worry, or should we expect him to pull out of it?
Brad Johnson
12:50
I think he's on fumes and pressing as a result
So yes and no
12:51
he might just be out of gas for this season, but I don't think he's lost the improvements he made entering the season
I haven't noticed any particular exploit being used against him, though I admit I haven't looked closely
