It
It's at least partially a matter of preserving depth. If you discard Toles prematurely then that's one fewer player to call upon later

Got offered Kershaw for my Thames and Darvish. 10 team H2H points league, my positional needs are a wash. Which side?
Brad Johnson
4:15
Thames
if there was a decent second player in there with Kershaw tho...

Nate Karns: a couple low-run outings without K's and a couple high-run outings with K's (and walks). What's an owner to do?
Brad Johnson
4:15
Own better players? Seriously though, I assume this is some kind of 14 team, AL Only format?
Boss Man

Gsellman had a couple of bad outings vs the Braves but giving up lots of singles/doubles along with no K's. Am i right to hold on to him for a while longer? 12 team 30 man rosters
Brad Johnson
4:16
I'm still hopeful, but I'm also reducing him purely to streamer status
And I think yesterday was my last stream of him in awhile
4:17
There are injury red flags. I think Alex Chamberlain was talking about them earlier today...
Somebody was
Deal or No Deal

I'm in a 12 team nl only keeper. I went into this year keeping 7 hitters and 1 pitcher (R Hill). I obviously spent most of my draft dollars on pitching (Syndergaard, Cueto, Maeda, Gsellman). No surprise looking at that list I'm 3rd to last in pitching, but I am first in hitting. I have R Zimmerman at $6, should I try to move him for a Strasburg type? Or am I getting panicked too soon?
Brad Johnson
4:17
Now is definitely the time to act, but it's important to maintain your strengths while doing so
Zimmerman

Who ends up with most SV this season: Norris, Bedrosian, Street?
Brad Johnson
4:18
I guess I have to vote for the healthy guy? I want it to be Bedrosian
Luck Dragons
4:18
When healthy, there are __ SP I would start over Rich Hill.
Brad Johnson
4:18
Couple dozen? I don't maintain a list in-season
I get a lot of questions about where so and so would rank
4:19
If you follow my work at all, you know I happily ignore all rankings including my own

Saturday Twins starter - how bout Nik Turley
Brad Johnson
4:20
Could be. I'm not very invested in which probable disaster pitches for MN
By all means, snag up some shares to speculate
Berrios or Turley. Don't go pinning your hopes on them
Rob

Help! Surely lackey won't continue to give up 23% HR/FB but he's getting hard contact a career high 36% of the time? Time to start looking on the wire or hold tight with K% and BB% near his career norms?
Brad Johnson
4:21
Depends on your wire. Probably should hold tight. Lackey's a weird asset because he's average or slightly worse across the board. You need volume so he still has value
Vinny Chase
4:21
Chuck Morton or Hector Santiago for the double start next week?
Brad Johnson
4:21
I'm not going to say it...
Angels fan
4:22
Anything to get excited about with J.C. Ramirez?
Brad Johnson
4:22
Other people are getting excited, I'm not. He's been terrible for so long and doesn't look any different to me
seek out second opinions
Dan
4:22
what do you think of suarez?
Brad Johnson
4:23
I've been his biggest supporter. He's one of those guys whose fantasy numbers exceed the visible talent
Mallex P. Keaton
4:23
I hear you on Harrison, but he's hot and hitting leadoff at GABP... gotta play him against Feldman tonight, right?
Brad Johnson
4:23
Yessir

How are you feeling about Michael Brantley? Any high-K SP's you would target if you're selling high?
Brad Johnson
4:23
Feeling good, but he's not going to join the home run revolution. Cuts into his value
4:24
Maybe this guy?
Cru Jones

What is your panic meter at for Carlos Martinez right now?
Brad Johnson
4:24
zero on a 1-10 scale
