Brad Johnson

And that's where you play today

Re: Urias - worth holding him in a dynasty league? It's QS, but I can keep him forever and drafted him for $1 (10 team deep mixed).
Brad Johnson
4:35
Yes
KD
4:35
Sentzel, A. Rosario, Albies, R. Tapia, Happ, Alfaro- which guys will help me this year in NL only?
Brad Johnson
4:36
I'm most confident that we'll see Alfaro playing regularly
the others don't have a great path to PT, although the upside is perhaps higher

Other than the fact that he is throwing hard and he has a great offense behind him, what is there to like about Morton? His plate discipline numbers are below average. Below average swinging strike, chase and contact rates.
Brad Johnson
4:37
Great breaking ball which he's pairing with some higher fastballs (hence the decline in GB rate). Plus or better command in the early innings. I'm hopeful he improves at holding onto it
There's a chance he's better used like Devenski
Billy Beane
4:37
How do you feel abour Kiermaier? I liked him but I'm ready to cut bait because of his K rate.
Brad Johnson
4:38
Always been kinda ambivalent
He's somebody I'd like to stream, but he's just good enough to stick on someone else's roster if I cut him
Zorn
4:38
Are you holding Cotton in 12 team H2Hs?
Brad Johnson
4:38
Sure, absent alternatives
toki

Hypothetically speaking. If Bellinger went crazy and hits say 5 hrs with a .500+OB before they have to make a decision and Toles ends up at say.190OB. Would that change the outcome possibly?
Brad Johnson
4:38
Sure.
Prok McGok
4:38
ROS: C Seager or Lindor?
Brad Johnson
4:39
Lindor
Weezy
4:39
still high on Graveman? Some of his peripherals are looking shaky.
Brad Johnson
4:40
I did warn you he's done this before to me. Always comes out of the gate looking like a monster. One of these years he'll get it. Or his arm will die
I'm concerned
Prok McGok

If Bryce Harper played in Colorado or NYY, would you select him #1 in a re-draft over Trout?
Brad Johnson
4:40
No
but I would pick him #2
Jim-Bob
4:40
Tommy Joseph has X weeks left of rope before the Phils move on to Hoskins. Solve for X?
Brad Johnson
4:40
I don't think Hoskins is the real threat
4:41
Aaron Altherr, via Howie Kendrick, is the threat
and Altherr is already making a bid for everyday PT
Hoskins isn't on the 40-man roster, and the Phillies have a crowded 40-man
4:42
No matter how good he's hitting, he'll need a 60-day DL stint from someone to get a spot
Chip
4:42
How about a BJohnson hot take on Byung Ho Park? Thanks for chatting with us!
Brad Johnson
4:42
I can't even muster a room temperature take
4:43
So as far as I'm aware, he's rehabbing a hammy
any other reason why you want to know something about him? (I won't see your response in the flood)
diadem
4:44
DeLarosa worth stashing as Rodney insurance?
Brad Johnson
4:44
This spelling made me think of Mark DeRosa
I own DeRosa in one of my fantasy leagues
it's set in 2006
JRuby
4:44
Re Tommy Joseph, is it possible that the Phils send Stassi down, bring Quinn up, and platoon Saunders and Joseph at 1B?
Brad Johnson
4:45
Anything is possible.
