like Andrew Miller
young players usually handle that role better than free agent vets

Sonny Gray worth a DL stash for next year? I can snag him in my dynasty league.
Brad Johnson

I should keep 'opportunity cost' copied so I can just paste it over and over again
sure, if the opportunity cost is reasonable
I wouldn't expect anything out of him

I have a lot of #2/#3 starters. How would you rank Porcello, Shoemaker, Smyly and (gulp) Felix, down the stretch?
Brad Johnson
1:14
depends what you're maximizing. Porcello's a good source of wins and ratios. Felix has good potential for run support too
Shoe ad Smyly have garbage support
but they may be better pitchers right now.
Strong emphasis on may
1:15
they're all pretty similar in terms of asset class
I'll say Porcello, Shoe, Felix, Smyly
there's a chance Shoe has lost his feel for the splitter too
Cubbies

What kind of role does Profar have next year? He started off with a bang when Bannister played him regularly but when he shifted him to a part-time role he fell off a cliff.
Brad Johnson

SUPER UTILITY
1:16
you're seeing the causality wrong
the scouting report caught up to Profar so he was shifted to part-time
Eastern NC

Long term keeper, need to get younger. Keep Benintendi or Dahl if my windown is open?
Brad Johnson
1:16
Both? How are you not keeping both?
Dahl if you really must choose. I can't turn my back on Coors

Thoughts on last two keeper spots in a 12 team 4x4 NL only league? Votto $28, Segura $26, Bruce $24, Vizcaino $5. Worth noting that i have Villar for $12 for steals
Brad Johnson
1:17
And you're keeping Villar, right?
Votto's the easy one. Not a fan of the others at all, but at least Viz is cheap
Ombudsman

Would you start Salazar at Oakland tonight? Thanks Brad!
Brad Johnson
1:17
No
unlikely to exceed 5 innings

Need help with keepers. 5x5 auction ($260 budget) 13 team roto league with OPB instead of AVG. Can keep 4. Degrom-$13, Happ $3, Dozier $9, Blackmon $14, Ozuna $7 or Trumbo $11.
Brad Johnson
1:18
I assume you don't need to decide yet, right?
Blackmon is the only guy locked in, barring injury
a note on Trumbo...
at that price, you're going to feel like you must keep him because of what he's done this year
1:19
players of his profile can put together some very bland seasons though. i.e. Chris Carter
not saying you should cut him, just be open to the idea when the time comes
MASH

I've been holding Puig in my dynasty, but can I move on? The talent is there, but what a headache. Does LAD even bring him up in Sept?
Brad Johnson
1:20
If you've held him this long, you might as well hold on. He's raking...
If you read what I had to say about him the other day, you know I don't see much potential in him
1:21
but I doubt there's a better asset sitting out there in a dynasty
Josh

What type of value do you place on Kendrys Morales? His numbers are suppressed, but he seems to have run into some bad BABIP luck considering his exit velocity is elite and he's still spraying the ball. Can you rank him, Saunders, and Alex Dickerson ROS?
Brad Johnson
1:21
I think I'd roll with Dickerson over Morales right now, but I'd take him over Saunders
