Brad Johnson

If he were to debut next year, he's probably a 30 SB pace with below 10 HR pace
in 5 years he probably hits 20 home runs with 5 SB

Does Cutch get traded this offseason and we see Meadows in May?
Brad Johnson
4:36
It's distinctly possible
4:37
He's still valuable, but the club has to be wary of any extension scenarios after the last two years
Don't forget, he's been mediocre for the majority of the last two seasons now

12-team, 25-man, H2H, weekly-locked rosters. Do I start Fulmer at Cleveland next week? If not, any sneaky streaming recommendations (I already grabbed Gsellman for home starts against Atl and Phi). My staff is in a hard way after drafting Stras and G. Cole as my aces.
Brad Johnson
4:38
I like the Fulmer start. There's an article on the main page about the Indians preference for breaking balls, Fulmer can work pure fastballs
Gavin

Start Duffy and Quintana today? Duffy's velo up a bit... Or I can wait and lean on Arietta, Lester, Lackey, Hamels and Hill..
Brad Johnson
4:39
So both games have storms in the forecast, but I'd be starting them otherwise
do you have an innings cap or some kind of constraint or are you just dodging matchups
Adam

Should I be worried about Gausman (@BOS, BOS, @TOR) or Odorizzi (@BAL, BOS, TEX) matchups rest of the season in 10tm H2H playoffs? Could drop one or both to stream SPs with arguably better matchups (e.g., Finnegan, DeSclafini, Taillon).
Brad Johnson
4:39
Oh I'd be quite worried about both of them

Aaron Judge has struggled to adjust to big league pitching. What's your long-term opinion on him?
Brad Johnson
4:40
I've never been very high on him, mostly for statistical reasons
from the little video I watch of him as a prospect, I didn't see much hope for adjustments
4:41
So while it's enticing to hope he figures out the power, he's in the Joey Gallo asset class
4:42
there are a lot of Judges in minor league ball, Tyler O'Neill and Adam Brett Walker come to mind
Jones
4:42
Brad Peacock, decent flier or stay far away?
Brad Johnson
4:42
I'm steering clear
Ombudsman
4:42
Which closer ROS: Jeanmar Gomez, Tony Watson, or Adam Ottavino?
Brad Johnson
4:42
Watson
assuming you're maximizing save ops

I have Danny Salazar at $5 heading into his option year. Granted we don't know severity of his injury but would you 1) keep at $5 or 2) take the risk and gor for the extra year
Brad Johnson
4:42
the extension option is the tricky part
with what we know today, yea, you keep him
4:43
I think we need more info to decide on an extension
I'm looking to shop him in my deep dynasty this offseason
those forearm strains turn into TJS far too often
Boss Man

Pitch Anibal against the Twins tomorrow?
Brad Johnson
4:43
It's tempting, but I think Anibal is pulling a Kennedy. He's just gotten through a few outings without his usual big HR numbers
Boss Man
4:44
Looking ahead...where do you see Alex Bregman ranking among SS next season? Overall top 100?
Brad Johnson
4:44
I haven't really thought about rankings yet. I really hate rankings...
Cronut Burger

God help me for asking this, but...Miguel Gonzalez (@ KC, @ Cle, vs. TB) or Brad Peacock (@ Oak, vs. LAA, @ LAA)? Thanks!
Brad Johnson
4:44
Gonzalez
JD15
4:44
When he returns, O'day or Felipe Rivero? (Saves/holds league)
Brad Johnson
4:44
Rivero
Mike
4:44
Would you drop the perennially 2nd half slumping Sal Perez for either Wieters or Wellington Castillo?
Brad Johnson
4:45
Can you stream? Get Castillo's LH matchups and mix the other two (plus others)
Drewser
4:45
Any way you'd roll Brad Peacock next week (@Oak, LAA) in a 12-team, 25-man roster, 5x5, H2H, weekly-locked lineups league? A few other two-start options: Skaggs(@Tex, @Hou), Cotton (Hou, Tex), Taijuan (Tor, @Min), Wisler (@NYM, Mia), Rubby (@SD, @Bal).
