Ok, I've opened the chat early since I forgot to set the queue to open. You should be able to post questions now.
1:17
I'll be back in a half hour
Last week was very business like so let's try to have a little more fun this time!

Bold Prediction: Tony Zych finishes the season a Top 10 closer. Guy is straight filthy. Crazy idea?
Brad Johnson
1:19
Yes! Thank you. I got so much crap for my Zych hype last week.

I drafted Jansen early and waited on another RP, and never got one until David Hernandez. Trade Jansen and punt saves or scour waivers?
Brad Johnson
1:27
Never punt if it can be helped. Sit on Jansen for now and hope for more later.

Is there a place where I can find the fantasy value of hitting in a certain slot? As in how many more RBI opportunities will the 2 slot have over the 7 etc?
Brad Johnson
1:39
Sounds like an interesting article, but it's very lineup dependent.
1:44
Ok let's get rolling in earnest
Phil
1:44
Is it time to think about dropping B. Buxton at this point? 11 k's in 22 AB's!
Brad Johnson
1:45
League depth matters. If it's shallow i.e. Josh Reddick types are free, then absolutely.
1:46
if the wire is thin, then be patient. The upside is still excellent.
Phil

Eno is a beer drinker, what's your beverage of choice?
Brad Johnson
1:47
beer or whiskey. My body doesn't cooperate though so only in moderation
Mikey
1:47
Juan Nicasio - do you believe? Sell or hold?
Brad Johnson
1:48
Sell sell sell. I think he can be a solid enough #5, but he's fringy for a 12 team mixed league
Dan
1:48
Im in a 10 team roto. I have hitting but no pitching. My out feild is Trout, Bautista Carlos Gomez, Dickerson, and Soler. Should I trade Bautista for thor? is that too much?
Brad Johnson
1:48
Smells reasonable although I'd rather have Bautista.
Garg
1:49
In a H2H league, do you have any advice on managing a pitching rotation? I have a decent top 5 (Kluber, Price, some others) but it's never clear to me how often or when I should stream pitchers.
Brad Johnson
1:49
In H2H it's all about the matchup.
1:50
Early in the week you have to project what will happen based on the players involved
later in the week, you react to what has already happened and the stats you need.
Bill
1:51
If you are stuck with Segura right now as your starting SS, would you think about stashing Trea Turner? The Nats are probably going to call him up in about a week, right? (12 games or so to gain the extra arbitration year)
Brad Johnson
1:51
Wouldn't treat the call up as automatic
1:52
And he's not an automatic upgrade to Segura either. But I also don't mind stashing him.
Jon
1:52
Please rank ROS: Park, Myers, Piscotty (5 standard stats + OPS)
Brad Johnson
1:53
reverse order. Park's about to go into a part time role. Myers will keep playing but won't be particularly great
Jon Snow
1:53
I'm looking to trade Glasnow or Berrios for a pitcher to help me now. What sort of value should I expect now and which should I keep?
Brad Johnson
1:53
treat them as assets. Keep whichever one merits a lighter return
1:54
If it's a keeper, you'll get a lot. In a redraft, something like Jose Quintana maybe
Zorak
1:54
my closers are Jefress, Cishek and Doolittle. Madson is on the wire, plus McGee and any Phillie, as is O'Day, the only high quality non-closer still out there. Who do I keep and who do I dump? Can't really justify more than 3 relievers on my squad.
Brad Johnson
1:55
Keep your trio
Andrew
1:55
Does 20 homeruns seem like a reasonable expectation for Nomar Mazara?
Brad Johnson
1:56
Absolutely
As long as he doesn't get demoted later. Texas is soooo deep.
rustydude
1:57
On the waiver wire, Joey Rickard or Preston Tucker?
Brad Johnson
1:57
Rickard or something else. Tucker's about to lose time to Gattis
