Welcome folks. This week we'll be analyzing anthems including the best ones for which to stand, sit, or otherwise.
And of course, the ones that will perform best tonight for your DFS lineups.

How did it feel to win Super Bowl XXXVII? You guys really kicked the crap out of the Raiders.
Brad Johnson

I'm not kidding, 50% of the people I've ever met have made a quarterback quip. And usually they think they're the first to come up with it :)

Would you be so kind as to name a few American League players you're most excited to see get called up in September?
Brad Johnson
4:01
Adam Engel comes to mind
He's Travis Jankowski-ish
4:02
A lot of the ones I really wanted to see are already up like Sanchez and Judge
We should see some more Gallo and maybe Bradley Zimmer
Tony
4:02
Assuming Michael Brantley is healthy on opening day, which two players will be alongside him in the starting outfield?
Brad Johnson
4:03
Rajai and Chisenhall?
I always guess conservatively
Avi

I'm pretty sure you are supposed to run around on all fours for the Legoland anthem.
Brad Johnson
4:03
"run" is a bit of a misnomer. It's more robotic than that
AL Pitching Coach
4:03
Who would you rather take a flier on next season, Boyd or Triggs?
Brad Johnson
4:04
Right now, Triggs seems higher ceiling lower floor
Since Boyd is basically keyed in as a replacement level to fantasy average pitcher, I'd gamble on the riskier profile
Josh
4:04
How much are you buying Ivan Nova right now? Is he a must own in 12 teamers considering his next 4 starts: MIL, CIN, @PHI, @CIN?
Brad Johnson
4:05
I wouldn't @CIN him
But sure, take a flier for that stretch. We'll have an even better idea by
right now, we see a couple small positive indicators which could be pure luck
and some good results which, again, could be pure luck
or maybe he's been Searaged into a real pitcher
4:06
The Pirates really need to stop doing that to pitchers with just 2 months to free agency
George is Curious
4:06
Please rank these 3B-eligible players in terms of 2017: J. Polanco, Healy, Sandoval.
Brad Johnson
4:06
You done it. Could change wildly by draft season though
Saves Vulture
4:06
I'm currently speculating for 2017 saves in my AL-only league, looking at guys that aren't likely to be owned right now but might play their way in to a 9th inning role next season. So far I've pegged Keone Kela and Trevor May. Any other good names you can think of? Thanks!

Tony Zych. There's a chance Diaz gets put back in the rotation.
Iron Mike
4:07
Is Mike Clevinger part of Cleveland's starting rotation next season?
Brad Johnson
4:07
There's a chance, but I'm thinking he'll be the sixth or seventh guy. They can basically return the same starting five of Kluber-Carrasco-Salazar-Bauer-Tomlin
4:08
and still have Anderson in the mix too, among several others
I really doubt they trade an established guy
Joe
4:08
Are Taijuan Walker and Matt Shoemaker top-20 arms in the American League next year?
Brad Johnson
4:08
smells about right to me
4:09
with Shoemaker in particular, I've taken a "see it to believe it" mindset
I won't be drafting him, but I will be looking to buy
Tony
4:09
So no Zimmer in the starting OF next year?
Brad Johnson
4:09
I kinda doubt it. At some point, yes, assuming he's healthy when other injuries crop up
YES
4:10
Any chance Joey Gallo is starting somewhere in the majors come day one of next year's regular season?
Brad Johnson
4:10
I'll handicap it at 20%
