That's not exactly how I read it
he's a little like Yelich in that he hits too many ground balls
unlike Yelich, there's that hope he can still adjust a little
and he's more powerful in a physical sense
1:38
So I think we can expect 20 home runs from the current profile with a very stretch upside of 40 if EVERYTHING goes right
there's still potential for a superstar bat in there
Seth

machado start stealing again ala mr trout?
Brad Johnson
1:39
I don't know. He has ZERO steals. Trout always stole some
I think the team told him "you're too valuable to run"
Linus

Feel confident enough with Gary Sanchez at C ROS to trade Buster Posey for needed upgrade elsewhere?
Brad Johnson
1:39
If the upgrade is big, then yea
the league will adjust to Sanchez
see Contreras, Willson
B Square

Dropped Raisel for the Shark. Good move?
Brad Johnson
1:40
Not likely
really depends on your needs though
'it depends' is another phrase I need sitting in the clipboard

Drop J. Upton for Matt Boyd? Think I would regret that?
Brad Johnson
1:41
Well it's almost September, we have to stop waiting eventually.
I assume by Boyd, you mean you're going to stream
because just owning Boyd by himself is like not rostering a player
Nervus Lamb Owner

Lamb has been bad for a month no question but it's worth pointing out that he did face an 8 game stretch in there where he faced Matz, Colon, Thor, Price, Buchholz, Porcello, Colon and Thor again. Lot of guys would put up bad numbers against that run of SP. He had a good series against MIlwaukee right before that run so I'm hoping it's just a blip and he gets back on track soon but I have to admit, I'm a little worried.
Brad Johnson

nothing to add
Kevin

Aaron Judge or Keon Broxton ROS in a points league?
Brad Johnson
1:42
Judge
ok wrapping this up
Bird

Brad, I'd like to scoop Matt Boyd. Should I drop JUpton or Taijaun Walker for him? Who do you have more faith in ROS, Upton or Walker?
Brad Johnson
1:42
Walker
as in keep Walker
Bo
1:42
10 Team, keep 12 league. I have Bregman, Corey Seager, Jonathan Villar and Jose Ramirez. Any scenario in which keeping all 4 makes sense?
Brad Johnson
1:43
Sure, subject to your keeper rules
Ramirez probably draws the short straw, but he's a good flex guy
Eastern NC
1:43
Regarding Benintendi and Dahl, already keeping Rizzo, Trout, Xander, Miggy, and J. Fernandez.
Brad Johnson
1:43
From earlier
that's rather ridiculous
go for the bigger fantasy stats with Dahl
Benintendi will probably more talented in a real sense
Action Jackson
1:44
Got Rodon, Walker, and Garcia. Start all 3 tonight?
Brad Johnson
1:44
I'm edgy about Walker in particular
Bill
1:44
What are your thoughts on James Paxton for the ROS as well as going into 2017? Can he keep up the gains he made, and is he a bigger injury risk than your typical SP?
