Hey Brad. Hope all is well. I'm in contention in my AL-only league and it's slim pickings on the waiver wire in terms of SP. I would greatly appreciate if you could please rank the following: C.Lewis, Tomlin, M. Perez, McHugh.

I don't know their matchups offhand, and that's really what matters. Stadium and opposing lineups.
Tomlin seems a little broken to me right now while the others are just blah but functioning
haven't watched Lewis all season that I can recall
Tom

Thoughts on what we can expect from Mike Clevinger ROS and in 2017?
Brad Johnson
4:03
Basically nothing RoS
He's one of the 90 percent of pitching prospects who need to adjust to the majors. Some don't, some do so very quickly, some take awhile
4:04
I do think he has a useful future in him, but it all depends on his ability to develop and execute game plans

I don't really have a question. I like you're Vogelbach suggestion, especially since he's going against a righty tonight.
Brad Johnson
4:04
Yea I'm interested to see how this works out. He's the most John Kruk hitter I've seen since the Krukker himself
but he does look a little slower on bat speed
hard to really see that with just eyes watching a screen
Jalen

True or False? Roman Quinn will lead the league in SBs the rest of the way.
Brad Johnson
4:05
I'll go with false, but he should be way up there
if he doesn't suffer three injuries between now and the end of the season
that guy is the most injured player I've seen since Rocco Baldelli
4:06
let's see what other "most X I've seen" I can come up with today
Tin Can

Khris Davis is a top 5 power bat in the AL next season. Agree or disagree?
Brad Johnson
4:06
No arguments here

Easy comparison given the team and position, but have the A's found another Donaldson in Healy? Offensively speaking.
Brad Johnson
4:06
I wouldn't go that far
4:07
they've found a viable offensive player who may not have a defensive position if early metrics are to be believed

Does Clayton Richard keep the good vibes going tonight?
Brad Johnson
4:07
I'll bet on a 2.90 ERA RoS
4:08
My gamble is that he's made the contact management adjustment, i.e. 2015 Keuchel, 2016 Hendricks
still need a lot of defensive help
also I didn't vet that he's avoiding Coors Field, I think so though
EB

C. Lewis: vs. Oak, @ Oak, vs. Mil
Brad Johnson
4:08
From the first question. Certainly a good slate of situations
Ryan
4:08
Any excitement for Vogelbach being called up? Should I grab him in my AL-only?
Brad Johnson
4:09
I'm not certain how he'll be used
the club is going all out on getting Ben Gamel time despite nominally contending, but I haven't seen anything said of Vogey
I know I'd be playing him every day
not sure they do
Lind is banged up which helps this week

Where will Houston ultimately play Guriel? 1B? They seem pretty much set with altuve/Correa/Bregman
Brad Johnson
4:10
corner outfield or 1B seem reasonable
