Keeper order in a standard plus H, OBP, TB league: Bregman, Jose Ramirez, Villar?
Brad Johnson
4:54
woof, that's hard to work out off the top of my head. You're counting hits so many times....
4:55
I'm going to guess is Ramirez, Villar, Bregman if you're only focusing on 2017
4:56
there being a 10-20% chance Bregman is either in a partial timeshare roster crunch of some kind or else spending some time in the minors

Ian Desmond, of course, came back down to earth from his early season #'s. Can we expect him to go 20/20 next year, too? I suppose it also depends on where he's playing as he's a free agent again this year.
Brad Johnson
4:56
I don't know what to expect from him
honestly, he's one of those guys who constantly befuddles me
Tim Te-bro

Who's a better keep: Aaron Sanchez at $3 or Quintana at $14?
Brad Johnson
4:56
Gimme Aaron
I like em both though at those prices
4:57
Think Aaron is the slightly better pitcher now
the caveat is that Quintana's been so consistent for so long
and has a fuller repertoire
If Sanchez loses the feel of that two-seamer over the offseason, he turns pumpkin
Dalman

So, AJ Reed seems to be going in the wrong direction. Not happening for him this year?

I've had my doubts all along about his viability
remember, he was never that highly touted before a good 2015 season in the minors
there are issues with his profile, they're resolvable but I doubt the Astros have the patience given their win-now roster

Is Khris Davis a top-15 OF in 2017 (non-OBP leagues, of course)? Seems like he's totally sold out for power, and he's going to finish .260/85/40/100.
Brad Johnson

Smells about right
I expect the Athletics to trade him this offseason for a tidy bundle
though I'm sure they love having a guy who can actually hit them out of the O.co Colostomy

How do you see playing time in Arizona shaking out? Pollock is back and Hermann is on rehab, do they take a long look at hermann at C and LF?
Brad Johnson
5:00
I think they put Herrmann back in a straight platoon with Welly
Pollock will start 2 of every 3 games they say

Kyle Seagar approaching keep territory in 10 team-keep 5 when all U25 guys kept without using a keep spot? U25s on roster already Sano & Franco
Brad Johnson
5:00
he's on the border
try to get better if there's offseason trading

Can I get rid of Darren O'Day? I have Betances, Ramos, Blanton, and Matt Bush in saves + holds league and I need a DL spot for Gerrit Cole (18 team keeper)
Brad Johnson
5:01
Sure
or Bush
or just O'Day

Rank these fringy catcher options ROS: Leon, Zunino, Rupp, Hundley
Brad Johnson
5:01
Only Hundley is truly fringy
5:02
Zunino is a must own in a 5 team 1 catcher league
Rupp and Leon are probably 12 team 1 catcher guys
I still think Leon is 95% fluke

Brad Johnson

no
