my Felix Hernandez and Conley for his Salazar and McCullers?
Brad Johnson
2:23
Yes
please and thank you
Josh

Given Perkins' setback and May's struggles, is Perkins really going to stick at closer for the forseeable future (not that he has any save opps anyways)? Would Abad now be considered next in line?
Brad Johnson
2:24
I don't even know. What a mess. If it's any consolation, the Twins don't win games so you don't need their closer
Oliver
2:24
Whats up with Maeda? A little rough patch or start to worry?
Brad Johnson
2:24
League's adjusting to him
he'll be rosterable in most mixed leagues still
Don't call me Pedro
2:24
The Dodgers are nearing a forced decision on what to do with Alex Guerrero. What do you think they do?
Brad Johnson
2:24
cut
trade/whatever
2:25
They have a nice roster without him. It's a downgrade to keep him
Oliver
2:25
Salazar or Lester ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:25
push. Love em both
Dr. Drew
2:25
Is Drew Pomeranz really this good? What is the difference this year vs. prior years?
Brad Johnson
2:25
No. A .218 BABIP is the difference
2:26
He is better though. He's buffed his CB usage considerably which is why the strikeouts are up
the league will adjust
expect a 3.50 ERA with plenty of Ks
Jackie T.
2:27
Is V Velazquez and every start starter? I benched last night @ DET and I'm happy. Seeing CHC next on the docket, which I'll probably bench. With the innings limit, he's not looking super valuable if he's not an every start starter.
Brad Johnson
2:27
Velasquez is going to be a headache to own. Trade him while he's well-regarded
hugely talented, hugely inconsistent
2:28
throws like 9 different pitches and never knows which 2-3 three he'll lean on until game time
Don the Jeweler
2:28
Is Jackie Bradley Jr. the next Tony Gwynn? Ok... how about Kirby Puckett? Can't really tell how good he is.
Brad Johnson
2:28
bad comps, but he's finally a real fantasy asset
he's a buy high candidate
Oliver
2:28
If Yankees fall out, % that Miller gets traded and becomes a closer?
Brad Johnson
2:28
60%
maybe 75%
2:29
do think they'll keep Chapman to either re-sign or collect the draft gold
Jimmy
2:29
Did Leonys Martin change anything fundamentally to be able to keep this up? How much longer at this rate of production before adding him?
Brad Johnson
2:29
I've been meaning to take a closer look. Been seeing comments about changes. Not sure I believe them
Jesus
2:29
Is Trayce Thompson actually Alex Guerrero in a Trayce Thompson mask? I haven't seen them in the same room together
Brad Johnson
2:30
I'd rather pretend to be Guerrero, he has the better contract
Shawn
2:30
Shallow league - Tiajuan Walker or Rich Hill ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:30
Um...Hill? Assuming he lands with a nice contender
I like Walker too though, he's just inconsistent
OddBall Herrera
2:30
Re: Dahl, do you like him more than Buxton at this point? I'm starting to despair of the Twins' ability to develop talent
Brad Johnson
2:31
for fantasy purposes, yeah
I know that's crazy talk, but Coors does crazy things to a hitting line
Connecting...
