Mad Mallex - a Jarrod Dyson/Billy Hamilton one category wonder, or someone who can help in OBP and runs as well? Hold or sell?
Brad Johnson
1:58
There's potential for him to stick as a leadoff man. Like Delino.

lost schwarber (so sad). picked up yaddi then traded pomeranz for hundley... now d'arnoud and james mccann just got dropped. should i have just waited a few days and picked up tda or mccan? was trading a mistake?
Brad Johnson
1:58
Can't predict somebody as good as d'Arnaud would get dropped
Harrison

Cespedes for Archer/Beltre?
Brad Johnson
1:59
For the pair? Yes please and thanks.

4x4 Ottoneu with $16 Keuchel, $22 Archer and Cole, $40 Sale, with decent depth behind them. Which would you trade for offensive upgrades?
Brad Johnson
2:00
I get a lot of "which would you trade" questions. It's a matter of maximizing return which means you shop them all and sell the one you get the most value on
Tommy

What do you make of D. DeShields? Off to a slow start, and the team has used Odor as the leadoff hitter recently. I'm concerned they will move DeShields to the 9th spot which will reduce his value some, or even send him to AAA if this keeps up.
Brad Johnson
2:01
These are risks, especially once they believe Lewis Brinson is ready
Felix

Gerrit Cole and Tolleson for Keuchel and McGee in H2H, which side do you prefer?
Brad Johnson
2:01
Keuchel, most would prefer Cole
Jason
2:02
Why do you say Park is about to go into a part time role?
Brad Johnson
2:02
He's obviously overmatched and they don't need him starting. They're better off working him as the Pirates did last year
Victor
2:02
Is Devon Travis worth stashing in a 12 team H2H?
Brad Johnson
2:02
I just did this morning.
2:03
Had Grandal coming off the DL
Brad Fan
2:03
It seems like your pretty concerned about Park? Think he reaches 30 hrs this year
Brad Johnson
2:03
No, thinking about 350 PA for him now. I expect him to adjust more slowly than Kang

A.L. only...when Gausman comes off the DL....I have Greene, Eovaldi,and Hughes supporting Kluber Salazar and Zimmerman. I also have SS Anderson $3 and Profar $5...on my bench in a keeper league. Who should I drop?
Brad Johnson
2:04
Whichever of Greene/Hughes looks worse
Andrew
2:04
I know you love Zych. Where do you have him relative to other non closers like Giles, Kela, or Madsen? Saves, but not holds.
Brad Johnson
2:04
Giles then Zych
Tommy
2:05
I know is a very, very SSS. However, are you excited to see that Christian Yelich is not hitting nearly as many GB's as in past seasons? Could we finally be looking at the power breakout that has long been predicted?
Brad Johnson
2:05
I've false alarmed on Yelich before and I haven't watched any Marlins games yet
so I'll wait
Juan
2:05
Really on the closers question? I'd rather have McGee over Cishek
Brad Johnson
2:05
The Rockies seem to want somebody else to close
2:06
Worried Castro takes the job even if McGee pitches well
Paul H.

If a win is "worth" 6 million what is the true worth of a player like Terrance Gore, or formerly Jarrod Dyson. Win's like the Royals had on Sunday can largely be attributed to their speed and are one of the many small factors they have outperformed their projections the past two years.
Brad Johnson
2:06
Don't take it so literally
2:07
Think of those as leveraged incidents. Better to use WPA for that kind of scenario
chig
2:07
What lever of pitcher could i trade and get Billy Hamilton?
Brad Johnson
2:07
You won't get him, but I think Jason Hammel sounds right to me
Max
2:08
Better for Holds now/Saves later: Jumbo Diaz or Mark Lowe?
Brad Johnson
2:08
I hope neither. I'll say Lowe though
2:09
Blake Treinen not available? Strop?
Compton
2:09
Thoughts on Colin Rea tomorrow @ PHI? Daily Grind says to exploit. Is he just a mediocre arm that you can't even use against the Phillies?
Brad Johnson
2:09
Yerp, that's my take anyway.
Mallex Smith
2:10
Any chance I see regular ABs after Inciarte comes back?
