in a keeper, not unless you can re-stash Urias after popping Smith on the dL

How does Hyun Soo Kim compare to Jung Ho Kang? I grabbed Kim in an OBP league and am hoping he continues playing every day. Thanks.
Brad Johnson
2:47
The comparison is kind of forced, but it's fair to note the slow transition to the majors. I haven't seen enough of Kim to offer much of an opinion

Schoop or Travis long term?

Travis
Conflicting Reports
2:47
People seem all over the board as to whether the Braves will call up Ozzie Albies in June. Any insight as to what they may do?
Brad Johnson
2:48
He's not very fantasy relevant at the moment. you'd be looking at a .260 average and a few stolen bases
There's upside for a lot more, but he's years away from it. Reminds me a little of Elvis Andrus
All in the Familia
2:48
What's your take on the recent struggles of Jeurys Familia?
Brad Johnson
2:48
Shit happens? Pretty sure he's fine
Q
2:49
Idk what to do with Velasquez in a 12 team H2H keeper league with QS. I know his last couple starts have been shaky and against decent offenses, but his 140 Innings limit scares me. Is it time to try and trade him or hold on to him for his duration of the rest of the year?
Brad Johnson
2:49
Should have traded him immediately after that Padres game. He's going to be maddeningly inconsistent
Jack

Is JP Crawford going to be an elite fantasy SS or will he have more real life value?
Brad Johnson
2:49
He's more a real world guy, but there's room for big fantasy production too
2:50
He's a little disadvantaged by the influx of great SS prospects
they're skewing what elite means at the position

Brad, I see in the Grind you are bearish on Shoemaker tomorrow despite his past couple of starts. Is this more of you don't believe in what he has done recently or the team he is up against?
Brad Johnson
2:50
He's always a risk to give up three home runs
those may be solo home runs, i.e. not a huge deal
or they could be multi-run disasters
MO

Burns & Stroman for Yu fair enough?
Brad Johnson
2:51
Yu is worth much more imo

flipped pomeranz for adam jones. when do i get to pay myself on the back?
Brad Johnson
2:51
Maybe soon. Probably eventually.
I still don't think Pomeranz is a SP

Benintendi up this year? 2017 regular?
Brad Johnson
2:52
Well he's not doing well in Double-A, so I'll say no to this year. We'll see if he gets hot again.
Probably 2018 if he doesn't get rolling again

Is Votto ever going to...y'know, be Votto again
Brad Johnson
2:53
I haven't a clue. Sorry to the dozen people asking for insight. He's a smart hitter, he probably just needs to discover a feel that works

Continue to roll with Freeman at 1B in a 12 team H2H? Napoli is sitting on the wire. Freeman just doesn't drive in any stinking runs!
Brad Johnson

Freeman

If/when Gattis is C elig do you prefer he or Vogt?
Brad Johnson
2:53
I'll say narrow edge to Gattis

If Arodys Vizcaino is traded, who is (a) the best pickup for immediate saves and (b) the best pickup for ROS saves?
Brad Johnson
2:54
Can't say I've tracked the Braves bullpen closely. Gotta guess Grilli is still the guy they want to do it
Obviously, the lost command is a concern
Andrew
2:54
Two hot 1Bs on the wire in 12-team redraft: Matt Adams or Logan Morrison ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:54
Adams
would love Adams if he was competing with Moss and Holliday for 1B reps
