Huge fan of his, had him on every team
Drew

Why do managers hate lefties as closers?
Brad Johnson
2:26
platoon splits
They also don't like too many lefties on the roster and prefer two for situation purposes

Michael Brantley came back in spring training, hit a HR, played the next day, and has been out since. Just starting his rehab assignment, when he comes back, how tempered are your expectations of him?
Brad Johnson
2:27
Not at all. He'll be good. 15/15 batting third
HR

Was offered Story for AJ Reed in deep dynasty. I'm set at SS with Xander. 1b Freddy Freeman. Thoughts?
Brad Johnson
2:27
That's very interesting. They're both going to be excellent long term pieces
2:28
both have first round ceilings, I might call this a draw
I've fallen behind on the comments so I'm going to skip ahead

Is it worth to keep Cozart over Lowrie or Kepler?
Brad Johnson
2:28
Go Lowrie

hazebaker cutting into grichuk's playing time?
Brad Johnson
2:29
Yes sir. And Moss and Adams
Unlikely to be permanent
Matt

Jake Lamb, or Danny Valencia?
Brad Johnson
2:29
Ha, I own both and I can't decide
The Original Greaser Bob

With Keuchel's velo down a little and all the walks any reason to be concerned? Or just two game noise?
Brad Johnson
2:30
Always worth concern, I wouldn't panic yet

Is Cutch a top 15 fantasy asset this year?
Brad Johnson
2:30
Right around there

12 team H2H 5 keeper league 5 bench spots, I'm currently holding onto Story, White, Reed, Giolito, and Berrios. Is that way too aggressive? I'm hoping one of the pitchers pops and one of Reed/White sticks which will set me up for the playoffs
Brad Johnson
2:30
Seems fine to me
Kyler

would you trade Trevor Story and Corey Dickerson for Dee Gordon in a standard 5X5 league? I'd replace Dickerson with Hanram and shift Russell from 2B to SS to cover Story. Also I know its early, but I am leading the league in home runs and have the core to finish there
Brad Johnson
2:32
So there are two angles, the actual players involved and the stats. I think, based on your team evaluation, you might be better off with Gordon. But how much do you trust the power to be there

Should Travis Shaw be rostered in 12 team roto leagues?
Brad Johnson
2:32
Yea. The offense is good enough and 3B is shallow
Though I'm thinking standard deep rosters, not the shallow ones
Christian
2:32
Are you that high on Story? You're probably the only one.
Brad Johnson
2:33
The power is very real. The AVG/OBP are going to hurt
With Coors, 35+ HR is reasonable
Thor
2:33
How is coco crispy a starter over burns...tell me this wont last
Brad Johnson
2:33
They're comparable talents when Crisp is healthy
Tom
2:33
Thoughts on Cervelli? Top 10 catcher?
Brad Johnson
2:34
Borderline. Love him batting fifth
Von Schloss
2:34
Please rank Zych, Treinen & Clippard
Brad Johnson
2:34
You've done it
Rick
2:34
Are you buying Hazelbaker?
Brad Johnson
2:34
He's a hot hand to stream while batting second
KC

Nicasio has given up 4 runs through 3 innings. I dropped Patrick Corbin for him and can still get Corbin back, should I?
