I'll take a closer look now, bear with me
1:56
Don't know why his contact rate has disappeared, I'll call it a fluke or injury for now
1:57
I'm skipping ahead on comments, sorry if you get skipped
AJ Reed

The call-ups are continuing. Jose Berrios got called up today. With Tyler White in a 3-36 slump, is my time coming soon?
Brad Johnson
1:57
Let's not panic about White just yet. I think Reed will get his reps from someone else
1:58
Maybe still 1.5 months?
Zip Planter

Alex Gordon: droppable in 12 teamers?
Brad Johnson
1:58
In 3 OFers sure. In 5, hold onto him
Gavin

Does Rajai Davis keep playing everyday and leading off with Brantley back? He's played well! That could be some dirt-cheap speed off my wire.
Brad Johnson
1:59
He'll play most days for now. He's performing and there's a spot for him
Jacob deGrom
1:59
Everyone keeps saying they're worried about me, I think I'll be fine.
Brad Johnson
1:59
He's a good pitcher. We'll have to wait and see.

Neris or Chacin in a points league, I have a spot open for rp or SP
Brad Johnson

Neris. He'll hurt less if he turns pumpkin
forever it

Thoughts on Souza's start to the year? Sustainable or will the excessive K's do him in?
Brad Johnson
2:00
He's like a poor man's Joc Pederson. The K's hurt.
Think of Chris Carter, his numbers are usually there at the end of the year, but the path is painful
Jose Berrios
2:00
Am I up for good? If so, % of FAAB to throw out?
Brad Johnson
2:01
I doubt it, but it's possible. You'll need a BIG bid.

I checked on Betts' swinging this morning. O-Swing% last 3 years: 18.9, 26.6, 23.8. Z-Swing%: 50.9, 52.9, 55.0. Swing%: 35.9, 40.3, 40.4. Swinging the same, if not better. So where is the difference for this year? Contact! O-Contact%: 74.4, 71.8, 50!!! Z-Contact: 92.8, 93.2, 93.0. Is O-Contact% something you see him fixing?
Brad Johnson
2:02
LoCain's numbers were kind of like that. Without checking, I'm guessing he's faced some quality pitching.
As I mentioned, I think he'll figure it out
ElTulocabra

Should I try and trade Tulowitzki now while the season is early, or should I wait for him to regain his value? Zack Cozart has been doing well on my bench.
Brad Johnson
2:03
His name probably still carries more weight than his production. I'd shop him
Dasss right doo!
2:03
I took a flyer on Suarez in Cincy knowing the power would play in that park. The question is, can he keep it up to wind up a top 5 fantasy SS?
Brad Johnson
2:04
Top 5 could be a stretch, but I like him a lot
I may have mentioned I own him in every league I have
Evan Gattis
2:04
Am I droppable in a 10-team mixed?
Brad Johnson
2:04
long long ago

Non-saves league, just rank in terms of best per-inning: Zych, Strop, Strickland. Thanks!
Brad Johnson
2:04
Zych, Strickland, Strop

Surprised Eugenio Suarez's 4 SBs? Can he continue to steal at a decent pace and maybe finish with 20+?
Brad Johnson
2:05
20 is a stretch. The Reds do like to run a lot though
Ender Inciarte
2:05
Should I be owned, when healthy?
Brad Johnson
2:06
Depends on league depth. But if he's hitting, healthy, and batting leadoff, then sure
Eastern NC
2:06
Any reason to worry about Cutch?
Brad Johnson
2:07
He's probably not going to be the guy he used to be. I'll still take his ZiPS RoS projection though
Alex
2:07
Afternoon Brad - My Brantley and Ervin Santana for his Carlos Gomez and Garrett Richards in a 20 team keep forever league?
Brad Johnson
2:07
Seems like an unnecessary trade and Brantley is sooo good when healthy. I'd hang tight
Eastern NC
2:07
Did we all jump the shark on Carlos Correa?
