Brad, what AL underperformers are you most bullish on? I own Ortiz, Cano, and Castellanos but am concerned about regression RoS
Brad Johnson
2:33
Yea they're due for some regression. Let me pull up a list
2:35
JUpton, Jones, Abreu, Dozier, Pillar jump out as solid rebound candidates

Who's the next Sam Dyson?
Brad Johnson
2:35
Will Smith
Jad Brohnson

Two quick ones for ya: In OBP, Gallo shouldn't be dropped, right? Am I crazy for thinking he has top 10 potential in that format? Is Liriano nothing more than a SP4 at this point?
Brad Johnson
2:36
Well I just don't see playing time for Gallo. If it's a redraft, you have to let him go. Probably accurate re: Liriano

12 team OBP league that counts QS rather than wins. I have some OF depth and would like to add another starter. Ozuna too much to give up for Nola?
Brad Johnson
2:37
Yea, probably. I'm a little cautious regarding Nola. He could pitch extremely well and still only win 2 more games all season. Or he could post a 4.00 ERA. He's not a true ace.

Speaking of Jose Abreu as a rebound candidate. I have a tendered offer of Jose Abreu for Matt Harvey. I have Joey Votto as my 1B. Lucas Duda occupying my DL spot. My gut says that is a good deal. My rotation headliners are Fernandez, Archer and Salazar besides Harvey. It's a 10tm 5x5 league. Would you do it? Would you take that trade. Thanks, Brad!
Brad Johnson
2:38
After yesterday, definitely hang onto Harvey
the velocity reports alone are enough to reject that swap

Traded last round Corey Seager and Tyler Glasnow for 1st round Sale. Needed pitching (Stroman, Lackey, Rodon, Porcello, Jon Gray) and have Harper, Trout, Betts, Machado, Sano, Lucroy. 12 team H2H 8 keeper. Am in 1st but having some regrets. Thoughts?
Brad Johnson
2:39
This is how it's supposed to work. Years ago, I swapped Harper for Joey Bats, Chris Davis, and a couple aces. Harper's the only guy still on a discount contract of that bunch
I regret it, but that trade was the only reason I finished third instead of 10th that year

Brad- always enjoy the chats. Scooped up Profar in a 10 team keeper...what do i do when Odor returns this weekend? Profar has flashed some ability this time around, so I hate to cut him- but seems to be the best route with some good waiver options out there?
Brad Johnson
2:40
Most leagues, the right move will be to cut. Maybe wait to see how the Rangers react though.
Jack
2:40
Is Salazars career ceiling top 10 SP? Is he there already?
Brad Johnson
2:40
Top 10 is a little high, but he can definitely hang with a Cole Hamels or Jon Lester
i.e. top 20 guys
Andrew
2:41
Is cutting Giles for Will Smith a good idea?
Brad Johnson
2:41
well Smith is still on the DL, so I'd advise dumping someone easier to reacquire.
Something Brewin'
2:41
Scooter Gennett's walks are up. Any hope of him making big strides as a hitter?
Brad Johnson
2:42
I think he's making a modest stride. Expect a little more power too
Bill
2:42
Jhoulys in AL only?
Brad Johnson
2:42
Shudders.
Also, yes, AL Only requires some dumpster fires. At least he has a good home park
Philly
2:42
Nick Williams seems to be hitting much better than AAA teammate JP Crawford. Any chance the Phillies call up Williams right after the Super 2 date?
Brad Johnson
2:42
Almost no chance
there are other developmental items in play
2:43
The Phillies probably have a good four or five OFers they'll look at before Williams. At least until sometime mid-2017

Thought I've heard somewhere that in the summer Camden Yards plays like Coors Field. Have you seen/heard this? Would you target Adam Jones?
Brad Johnson
2:44
Camden Yards is an excellent park for HR. Left-handed HR are similar to Coors. But the comp isn't entirely accurate because it's not as friendly for other types of hits
Coors is what it is because EVERY type of hit type is buffed
Top 6
2:44
Adam Duvall is in the Top 6 for HR in the NL. I know the trade and park helped him, but can he keep this up?
Brad Johnson
2:44
I'm going to keep saying this. Adam Duvall is Evan Gattis
Don't call me Pedro
2:45
Sounds like Dodgers are going to release Alex Guerrero. Where do you think he ends up?
Brad Johnson
2:46
Philadelphia and Atlanta make sense for any free agent outfielder
Ryan
2:46
Should I drop Urias for Will Smith?
Brad Johnson
2:46
in a redraft? Absolutely
