Nola isn't really much of an upgrade on Sanchez. The only notable advantage is the inning cap
1:59
You should be able to aim higher - like Lester or even Cole
AJ

Is this the year of the third baseman? I got Seager, Longo, Valencia, and Dietrich and still cant ship one out in a 14 teamer!... btw, should I trust Dietrich or Pearce at 2B RoS?
Brad Johnson
1:59
Dietrich until Gordon returns in late July
higher floor than Pearce
Pearce has the higher ceiling with his superior power
mookie best

What's your favorite baseball game you've ever been to? I saw McGwire hit 61 and he put one on the warning track later that game but my favorite was a Willie McGee extra-inning pinch-hit walk-off homer on a home opener in 96. First game back with the birds.

this is a fun one. I went to see a terrible Phillies team rock Hideo Nomo when he first entered the league
2:01
Nomo had dominated all kinds of good teams. When he visited Philly, they started playing Phil Collins' I don't care anymore
chanting "no-mo, no-mo" from the end of the song
Nomo was flustered as hell

12 team roto- last in saves- would you deal Harvey for Wade Davis?
Brad Johnson
2:02
No, maximize your other strengths and add cheap CL
Guys like Rodney and Cishek
too late to pay for top CL
Young Jeezy

Outlook for Taillon? Do you think he sticks in their rotation?
Brad Johnson
2:02
No, they needed a spot starter for Saturday
Taillon was most ready but his regular start is tonight
2:03
so they pushed back the others in the rotation
AL-only Guy
2:03
In an 11-team AL-only league, is Shields coming over anything to get excited about?
Brad Johnson
2:03
Not really, he should be owned, but he's dangerous at the Cell
Bob Barker
2:03
You think King Felix's calf was the source of his demise? Do you think he's worth trading Lindor and Wheeler for him and B. Crawford?
Brad Johnson
2:03
I'd hang onto Lindor
pitcher performance post-injury is a guessing game
Oliver

Just picked up Jose Ramirez. Should I cut Panik or Dozier or hold and keep crying? 5x5 OBP
Brad Johnson
2:04
Well keep Panik. I just cut Dozier in a league so I'm sure he'll rebound immediately. I picked up Matt Adams
Bruce
2:04
12-team keeper, rebuilding for next year. My Arrieta/Bautista for his Springer/JBJ/1st round pick? (Keep in mind draft is after keeper selection)
Brad Johnson
2:05
Depending on how long you can keep these guys, I don't hate it. You deal the better players for younger studs
But if you can't keep for 6+ years, stick with the current studs

I offered up Desmond, J Upton and VMart for Correa and Stanton....why does this not feel like a big of a win as it should be? Dynasty league.
Brad Johnson
2:06
I would expect your league to revolt if that package landed more than Correa OR Stanton
especially in a dynasty

Revere or Burns for speed? Grichuk or Zimmerman for power?
Brad Johnson
2:06
Burns and Grichuk?
Or Revere and Zim
helpful, huh?
2:07
So...Revere isn't going to run much in front of Bryce Harper
Burns is a risk to lose playing time if everybody is ever healthy for the A's
Grichuk is super high volatility and Zim is steady boring
2:08
do with that as you will
