My rotation this season is was supposed to be headlined by Greinke &Waino. I'm currently pooping my pants. Should I not be doing that yet?
Brad Johnson
1:45
I do think they'll recover, but the damage is already done. You'll need to get lucky streaming high end relievers to make up for it
Dr. Met
1:45
Schoop or Wong, which 2B can dig out of his early season struggles?
Brad Johnson
1:46
I'll guess Wong. There's more to his skill set than swinging very hard.

Is this Porcello fool's gold? I'm debating dropping some OF depth to grab him to bolster my staff. Yahoo H2H categories.
Brad Johnson
1:46
Porcello made some pitch usage adjustments late last year. No reason he can't sustain those and remain useful. He won't be a stud or anything, but he could win a bunch of games with decent rates
Thor

Adding a pitcher off the wire for the long haul. Any of Hughes, Erasmo, Nelson, Latos, Wisler, Hill, Bailey, Graveman jump out as a good long term play?
Brad Johnson
1:47
No, they're all streaming options.
Vic

I invested in Greinke on 4 of my teams. Should I sell all 4 at the reduced rate, keep 2 and hold 2, or hold all 4? At this point, I would be happy if Greinke finished with a 3.50 ERA and 180 Ks. What say you?
Brad Johnson
1:47
Shop him as those nothing went wrong. Somebody might view it as "buying low" and overpay
as though*

With d'Arnaud likely heading to the dl which one of these guys do you like for now/ros : Vogt, Gomes, Castillo, Saltalmacchia, or Molina
Brad Johnson
1:48
Molina if you don't want to play mix and match. Otherwise, I like a platoon of Vogt, Gomes, Castillo based on matchups. Could get the #2 catcher by switching between them.
Joc Pederson
1:48
Is my early-season surge for real, or are my 33% K-rate, my lower z-swing % and my higher o-swing % harbingers of my impending doom?
Brad Johnson
1:48
Doom may be overstating it. Regression will occur where you expect it to
Macho

Twelve team, 10 player keeper. I was offered Buxton for Baez. Thoughts?
Brad Johnson
1:49
Guessing neither finish the year as a keeper. Baez seems more likely to do something this year. Buxton's still has the higher ceiling although the massive strikeout problem is disconcerting
Vic
1:49
Any sense of the Reds' closer situation?
Brad Johnson
1:50
Ugh.
Cingrani and Cotham for now. Somebody else later
shoop-de-oop
1:50
hold tight with Shoop or go with Panik? 2B landscape pretty sparse...
Brad Johnson
1:50
Panik for sure. He's been better than Schoop all along. Only category he doesn't have on Schoop is HR
I did it all for the Mookie
1:50
What is up with Mookie Betts in 2016? He has gone all Adam Jones in plate discipline (20.9% K, 3.3% BB). Is this just some weirdness from every pitcher working him away to start 2016?
Brad Johnson
1:51
Yea, we'll see some adjustments. He was a little shaky at the start of last year too then figured it out
Scott
1:51
I'm punting Coors in my cash game today, stupid or brilliant?
Brad Johnson
1:51
I almost always punt Coors, but I play GPPs
they just cost too much.
1:52
You have a choice between the aces and the Coors hitters. I prefer the aces today
they'll probably both go off
Mr. Wrestling IV
1:52
Severino was just dropped. Would you drop Samardzija/Odorizzi/Chen/Nola to pick him up?
Brad Johnson
1:52
Chen
John
1:52
Hey Brad, assuming d'Arnaud finds his way to the DL, who do you like best as a waiver wire stopgap (14 team OBP league)? Gomes, Hundley or Montero?
Brad Johnson
1:53
I'd like to mix and match them if possible
Cody S
1:53
15 team 5x5 Roto - Someone dropped H Iwakuma... how much of a $100 FAAB budget would you bid on him where pitching is scarce?
Brad Johnson
1:53
$5? $3? He should be pretty cheap.
Vic
1:53
Please rank in terms of saves futures: Zych, Lowe, May.
Brad Johnson
1:54
You've got it already
I did it all for the Mookie
1:54
Will Khris Davis commence with the Khrushing some time soon?
Brad Johnson
1:54
He's a streaky one. He'll get there
Matt
1:55
Lorenzo Cain - is this evidence that his (probably unrepeatable to *that* level) 2015 was an anomaly, or just a slow start?
