Gallo could also sneak time from Fielder/Moreland since they're both hitting poorly

What do you see from Homer Bailey this year...when he makes it back?
Brad Johnson
1:55
There's no way to answer this beyond looking at normal TJS returns and his past numbers
1:56
I'll guess a 4.50 ERA with 8 K/9

So vetos are terrible. TWICE my trade for harper has been veto'd. Are these trades vetoable? 14 Team H2H 6X6 with 6th categories being Walks for batters and Losses for starters. First trade was His Harper for my Joc Pederson, Aldemys Diaz, Wade Davis and Drew Pomeranz. He dropped Zych,Buccholz,& Gattis. That was vetoed in week 3. Then the most recent one was Harper and Dee for Aldemys Diaz, Jake Odorizzi, Wade Davis & Will Harris. He was dropping Buccholz and Zych. Am I wrong?
Brad Johnson

Still reading...but I hate vetoes too
I have a standing policy, you veto, I quit
1:57
Those do seem light for Harper. There's no star leaving your roster

In a 12 team keeper, got offered $10 Odor & $1 Wheeler for my $7 Daniel Murphy. Is this a worthwhile trade or should I just hang on to Murphy?
Brad Johnson
1:57
Do it. Odor alone is worth it.

valencia or longoria at 3b ROS? Who ya got?
Brad Johnson
1:58
Gonna sound crazy, I had Valencia at a comparable valuation preseason. Seen nothing to change my mind.
I'll still say Longoria, but it's close to 50/50

Offered Greinke + Posey for my Syndergaard + McCann. Keeper league. I think this is today's gain for tomorrow's loss. Thoughts?
Brad Johnson
1:59
Syndergaard is all kinds of red flags for health. I think Verlander's the only guy who lasted awhile with that kind of stuff
2:00
So I wouldn't worry too much about the future. Pitchers spontaneously immolate. If giving up Thor comes back to bite you, shrug

Thoughts on Gallo?
Brad Johnson
2:01
Already touched on his roster battles. I want to see a sub 30% K rate before I jump aboard. Obviously you roster first then cross your fingers
Billy
2:01
Adam Conley still a hold after his last start?
Brad Johnson
2:01
He's on the edge of hold/streamer for a 12 team mixed
2:02
Nobody should plan to own him all year unless the league is 14 teams or deeper

If Matt Harvey stinks tonight, is it time to sell for pennies on the dollar? He had a side session a few days ago to fix things. other than a phantom DL injury, I dont know what else the team can do.
Brad Johnson
2:02
No point selling for pennies. Just eat the roster spot until he's DL'd

10-man ESPN points league - Trade my Xander for his G. Polanco? I have Machado, the Seager bros. and A. Diaz. My outfield is Herrera, Dietrich, Calhoun, Pederson, Maybin and Gordon (DL).
Brad Johnson
2:02
Yes, good use of a surplus
Nick
2:02
Thoughts on Jon Gray? Watched some of his starts and he seems to have great stuff. His career FIP is 2.56.
Brad Johnson
2:03
Just steer clear at Coors. And against some tougher opponents. In short, he's an elite streamer
Kari Faux

My Salazar and Adrian Gonzalez for Kluber and Ozuna. 10 team mixed redraft.
Brad Johnson
2:03
Push. I like Salazar most right now. Kluber's off his game
AJ
2:03
Got in the same team: Heyward, Dozier, Fielder and Upton. Too many people to wait on, nobody wants in trade. Should I drop some? And if so, for meh pieces or prospect stash?
Brad Johnson
2:04
Fielder or Dozier are the drops. Just depends what's out there
Mr. Wrestling IV
2:04
Do you expect Jhonny to be back to his old self when he comes back, or is the thumb a potential to sap power?
Brad Johnson
2:04
Both
I think he'll be fine, but there's always risk
Gee
2:04
Giolito or Taillon for NA spot for a redraft league? Or keep both and burn a bench spot?
Brad Johnson
2:04
Taillon. Giolito is getting further and further from his MLB debut
Questionably Wise Old Sage
2:05
A. Reyes, AJ Reed, T. Turner, J. Gallo , J. Taillon, J. Berrios, T. Glasnow, O. Arcia, JP Crawford... Which two will have the greatest impact ROS? Can you list your order of preference? Should I grab Urias or Ryu from LA ROS? Points league (season long).
Brad Johnson
2:05
I'll go Gallo (already majors) and one of the Pirates guys
Boris
2:05
Is a .222 hitting Kemp here to stay?
Brad Johnson
2:05
He's 2-for-9, relax
