good challenge trade
Hamilton for Volquez 2.0
Darth Vader
2:14
should I add jp Crawford or swanson for 2017?
Brad Johnson
2:14
Swanson
JPC is overhyped for fantasy purposes
going to be an awesome real world player with adequate fantasy utility
Rob M
2:15
Let's say Alex Reyes is called up after another few starts in AAA. What can we expect from him July-Sep?
Brad Johnson
2:15
He won't be. Right now he's a 5.00 BB/9 guy in the majors. They won't promote him until that's fixed
or he'll be relieving
Don the Jeweler

I'm getting mixed signals on Goldy. BABIP is way low, but he still has footspeed...but his hard hit % is down, and his walks are up. Are they pitching around him, and will this correct itself? Or is he diminished...
Brad Johnson
2:16
Lot of it is pitch around. He's also looking a little passive at the plate to me. Which can come of being pitched around
best case, scouts decide it's time to attack him and he goes ham
Tony

Does Grichuk seem to be turning it around?
Brad Johnson
2:17
I've seen signs of a turn around a few times. The back injury has me staying away no matter how minor. At least for a few days
Cubbies

Ignoring position eligibility, and starting at whenever his callup date is, AJ Reed over Drury and Valencia? Also have Bregman on the wire. Gut feeling is fine.
Brad Johnson
2:18
No to AJR. Yes to Bregman. I'm starting to think Reed needs a full season at Triple-A
uru
2:18
Who's the Yankees starting outfield August 1st? Who's the Twins starting outfield August 1st?
Brad Johnson
2:18
Gardner-Ells-Beltran?
2:19
with Hicks in the mix. I mean who else really gets involved? I'm not sure Judge is ready and they won't call on him if the team still sucks as a whole
and I don't know that they can trade any of the old guys
Robbie Grossman will start all 3 spots for the Twins
2:20
also Sano and a scrubby mystery man like Santana
or Arcia
basically, what they have now
Zorak
2:20
Keep Corbin or drop him for Urias/Giolito/other stash?
Brad Johnson
2:20
Corbin
at least in redraft
Jonny
2:20
Masahiro Tanaka a hold or a stream in 10-team?
Brad Johnson
2:20
hold
J.P.
2:20
Now healthy, does McCullers pitch his way into the top 20 SPs this year?
Brad Johnson
2:21
No. Doesn't last long enough per start. Won't get the necessary volume even if his ratios are good
Chuck
2:21
Charlie Blackmon just need a little Coors helium to get things going?
Brad Johnson
2:21
He's playing a little banged up. Not sure he'll really get going until he feels 100%
Joey
2:21
How are you valuing David Dahl in Dynasty? His walk rate and ISO are way up this year in AA and he will play at Coors. Am I over rating him to hold him over Kepler or Kyle Tucker?
Brad Johnson
2:22
No, you're right to take Dahl. He'll be a Coors Field monster.
Think about Trevor Story. Similar skill set with higher ceiling

I've been a big Justin Upton Apologist this year but hes been testing all the patience. I could see a big second half coming, but I've been offered Tanaka for him. Should I just cut bait and take 70 cents on the dollar?
Brad Johnson
2:22
I don't think I'd take Tanaka for him, but it depends on your specific needs
2:23
I feel the same way, especially since I don't actually own him
I feel bad saying to hang with him when I get none of the pain. But that's what the analysis says to do
