Is Pujols droppable in a dynasty league? I dont play him at 1b or UTIL, just hoping for the rebound and trade. Should i stop wasting my time?
Brad Johnson
2:31
Only if the replacement is particularly good
somebody will need a 1B around the same time he hits 5 HR in one week
Frank
2:31
soler or corey dickerson ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:32
Dickerson and not even close
tom selleck
2:32
what do you think happens with reyes? is he worth a bench spot just in case?
Brad Johnson
2:32
Jose? I think he was entering scrub land before the whole debacle. I expect a 40 wRC+ in 120 PA this year
distractions, no spring training, it's going to be ugly
Corky
2:32
Should I be worried about the lack of Ks from Stroman?
Brad Johnson
2:33
Not sure worried is the word, but it's real
he's a good pitcher with a low-ish K rate
it can hurt
Sweet nectar

Predicted date, if any, that Hector Neris takes over as closer for the Phillies?
Brad Johnson
2:33
Whenever Gomez strings together a few bad outings
Macho
2:33
Some numbskull dropped alex gordon in a 12 team 10 player keep forever.
Brad Johnson
2:33
Think he's a top 120 player? I'm not so sure
2:34
I had to decide between dropping Duda and Gordon today. I dumped Duda

How sustainable is Odubel Herrera's 16% walk rate? Having a hard time valuing him in an OBP league.
Brad Johnson
2:34
16% is not sustainable, but the underlying skills will stick around
2:35
pitchers will attack him more (already are) because his bat isn't THAT potent
plus there's no support to follow up if he does get a hit
but a 12% BB rate with a few more hits should follow
Love him in OBP

Any tips on how to encourage trading in my dynasty league? we have so many teams that are just complacent.
Brad Johnson
2:36
In my experience, dynasties have a couple trading orgies a year. Ours has the midseason fire sale and the predraft December blitz.
Rule changes and/or better owners is probably the answer
Need Saves
2:37
Love the chats - they're much appreciated! I have Kenley Jansen, Cingrani and Miller. I haven't won a week yet in saves. The rest of my roster is pretty solid - do I trade Jansen for depth or hope Miller gets traded?
Brad Johnson
2:38
I'd look to add saves at the margins rather than trading them away
if you're contending, you might be able to pick closers up cheaply in July
then you'll be happy you have Jansen
Human Reyes
2:38
Word is Alex Reyes looked great in his AAA debut. Do you think he's the first of the big starting pitchers to get called up (Reyes, Urias, Glasnow, Giolito, etc.)?
Brad Johnson
2:39
He still has too many command issues
so no, I don't think he's first
Pablo the Pug
2:39
S. Gray, Harvey, Archer, or Keuchel for ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:39
Woof. Archer easy
Mike
2:39
Wouldn't the Yankees rather keep Miller on a 1-year deal and deal Chapman instead?
Brad Johnson
2:40
Maybe, but I think they'd rather have Chapman
they acquired him to assess him as a long term signee
Oliver
2:40
Keuchel. Woof. I know his value is about -1,000 right now, but in a more or less "novice" league, does his name carry aany value at all? Hate to drop him but hes literally costing me wins in a points league
Brad Johnson
2:40
You can cut in a novice league
