We'll start up in earnest in about 15 minutes. Anybody else having problems with MLB.tv this year?

Sad owner of Ken Giles and Drew Storen so it looks like I'm unintentionally punting saves. How would you rank Giles, Storen, Tony Watson, and Dalier Hinojosa?
Manuel
1:44
Is there any reason to expect Giles to close this season (apart from Gregerson injury or forgetting how to pitch)?
Brad Johnson
1:45
My condolences, I've been saying all spring that Giles and Storen would probably close. I think Giles is likely to regain the job, but I'd bet on Osuna hanging tough in TOR.
1:46
Giles had a rough start to the season last year before coming around. I'd look for the same pattern this year. Try to buy low in a few weeks.

in ottoneu 5x5 can I get enough out of a 2B/SS/MI combo of semien, brad miller, villar, and coghlan as well as kendrick when he comes back? Or should I be looking hard to upgrade?
Brad Johnson
1:48
If you have those guys because you're fitting them around a Mike Trout/Clayton Kershaw duo, then they're probably fine. If you lack multiple hyper-elite players, then you'll need an upgrade
Leifer

should i drop grilli is he waste of spot after yesterdays blown save?>
Brad Johnson
1:49
Depends on the depth of your league. I have several shares of him and I'm going to hold on for a little longer.
1:50
There's still a window for Grilli to seize the ninth inning, but it's closing rapidly.

Is Jose Reyes worth holding on to in a 12 team roto league? Other SS = Ketel Marte. Would you rather stash Berrios?
Brad Johnson
1:50
Berrios or any number of other players. Reyes is a free agent in all of my leagues.
Ryan
1:51
Loaded with young SP in a keeper league and looking to move one for offence. Would you shop Salazar, C. Martinez or Matz?
Brad Johnson
1:52
Rather than focusing on shopping a single player, put all three on the table for the best offer.
Granted, you'll want more in return for Salazar
Linus
1:52
Shallow 10-teamer, who's the easiest guy to drop among Odorizzi, Piscotty, and Khris Davis?
Brad Johnson
1:52
Davis
John Esq.
1:53
Should I be sorry I traded Trevor Story? Got a good haul.
Vic
1:53
10 Team NL only 5 x 5. Which side do you prefer? Story for $1 this year and $4 in 2017. Or Matt Duffy for $7 this year and $10 in 2017.
Joe
1:53
Trevor Story with the (excuse the brutal pun) "Storybook" start to his career. How do you see his season playing out? Do you think he can start off hot, for a quick sell-high?
HappyFunBall

At the opening bell yesterday, Jose Reyes had a ___% chance of playing for the Rox this season. After Tevor Story's second HR that chance dropped down to ___% ?
Brad Johnson
1:54
Last one first. zero and zero.
1:55
I initially viewed him as a 20/20 threat with shaky AVG/OBP. Now I think he can top the power after such a good spring and a 2HR Opening Day.
1:56
He's an early pick for bargain of the year. Definitely prefer Story to Duffy.
By the way, not getting any of the games right now because mlb.tv is being dumb. So I'm mostly going to ignore those comments
Adam
1:57
Re: my MI situation. My best offensive players in order are probably Betts, Bryant, Adam Jones, Adrian Beltre. Best P's are Kershaw and MadBum.
Brad Johnson
1:57
follow up to the ottoneu question here
yes, I would seek an MI upgrade of some kind
Frank
1:57
rate these 3 SP: Conley, Cody Anderson, S. Greene
Brad Johnson
1:57
Anderson, Conley, Greene
Horn Please ThankYou
1:58
Which post-hype Cub is more worth the stash - Baez or Soler?
Brad Johnson
1:58
I'll go Soler
1:59
I think he's closer to an actualized MLB talent.
brett
1:59
so is Hinojosa the man in Philly? can he be OK, say a 3.50 ERA with a K/9 of 8 with some saves?
Brad Johnson
2:00
There's no man in Philly. Hinojosa and Jeanmar Gomez are the 2 guys I'm looking at right now for most saves.
I expect them to basically use their "best" relievers at need
Ryan
2:01
What's your mlb.tv issue? Not authenticating your account? Incorrect blacking out? Unwatchable quality? I had all of these yesterday.
Brad Johnson
2:01
The first 2
I'm not the primary user on mine so I can't use support. Did they tell you anything?
