Brad, 14 team league, what are some veteran starters you would target to acquire by selling VV? He will be a 14th rounder going into next year.
Brad Johnson
2:41
Something like Lester or Quintana
Jack

Did I do okay...$35 Abreu for $0 Nola $2 Castellanos and $3 T. Walker in a 10 team keeper league.
Brad Johnson
2:41
I like it assuming there isn't a low limit on keepers
Nick

How about Chris Hermann? Poor hitter up until this point, but his batted ball profile is pretty impressive so far this year.
Brad Johnson
2:41
Yea I keep looking at his page. Haven't seen him hit yet somehow. Should just pull up an archive game
the butcher
2:42
Should Clayton Kershaw be regarded as the #1 player in fantasy baseball the rest of the way?
Brad Johnson
2:42
It's hard to ever give a pitcher that credit in a normal league.
Harper and Trout are 5 cat monsters, but Kershaw can run away with four cats
it's a close call
2:43
in ottoneu FGpts, it's Kershaw by a landslide
Nacho
2:43
Weiters or Grandal in OBP league?
Brad Johnson
2:43
Love Grandal in OBP
just keep an eye on health
KD

I traded Giolito and Dahl for Lester and J Baez in NL only keeper to win now. Am I ok?
Brad Johnson
2:44
You'll be sad later, but that's the price you pay to turn no stats into a star and a core player
Nacho!!!

I am leading in my Dynasty keep forever. I was offered Joc Pederson and Julio Urias for my Cutch, what do you think? I am pretty light on young players
Brad Johnson
2:44
It's a good time to shop Cutch even if you don't take that specific offer
2:45
And i do think you can consider that. I might try to add two more players on your end then ask for a good third from him
David

Traded Chris Carter for Adam Jones in an OPS league. How did I do?
Brad Johnson
2:45
I like it. Though I expect them to be pretty comparable ROS
Bartleby

Christian Yelich ... was just on the verge of acquiring him in a deal involving Heyward, who has looked awful, and then Heyward got hurt. And then Yelich got hurt. Back injury seems to be chronic with Yelich. Would you run away screaming?
Brad Johnson
2:45
Yelich is never going to fix his batted ball profile
seriously caps his ceiling
2:46
so yeah, no need to stick around that talk
ok wrapping up
Lefty-righty
2:46
With one year left of control for both guys, would you trade away Kazmir to get Zack Wheeler in an NL-only 5x5 keeper league?
Brad Johnson
2:46
yes
The Farthammer
2:46
how do i say "bro, your team sucks you need to play for the future." Or can I just not "fix stupid"
Brad Johnson
2:47
Always tricky. I use lines like "I assume you're starting to look toward the future" then make up some math to go with an offer that looks very favorable next year
if he's a guy who doesn't believe in fantasy rebuilding - which is usually a valid perspective - then you're SOL
L Nygaard
2:48
Need help in batting average. Am I crazy to start Hanley over Rizzo?
Brad Johnson
2:48
Yes
Mike Scott's Splitter
2:48
Polanco or Puig in keep forever?
Brad Johnson
2:48
Polanco
Mike Scott's Splitter
2:48
Eaton or Puig in keep forever?
Brad Johnson
2:48
Um...that's tougher
I'll say Puig
no conviction
And that's the ball game. It's been a pleasure as always. See you next Tuesday.
