Jumbo Diaz is unhittable in AAA and gives up a HR per inning (or more) in the majors. Is it mental?
Brad Johnson
2:36
there's a big gap between the two levels
2:37
MLBers are also getting used to crazy velocity
not sure Triple-A will ever be a good test of high velo pitchers

Would you drop any of these to pick up Fulmer?
Brad Johnson
2:37
Probably. I don't know who "these" are, but Fulmer's good

Good Afternoon, I'm looking for info on how batters perform vs specific pitches. For example, slugging vs fastball or slider, things along those lines. Do you know where I could find such data? Thank you for your time.
Brad Johnson

Check out the FanGraphs player pages. We use weighted runs created rather than easy to read stats though. Brooks has the slugging by pitch type.
Be careful, most of that data is more misleading than useful

Can you explain Evan Gattis 2.0? Do you mean Gattis from last season?
Brad Johnson
2:39
I mean Evan Gattis in a second body
literally a clone
Tim
2:39
Gattis a top FIVE catcher rest of the way?
Brad Johnson
2:39
Now that's pushing it.
He has top 3 ceiling though
2:40
Only Posey and Lucroy are definitely better
RayofLight

tommy joseph a top 10 catcher ROS? He has power too after all.
Brad Johnson
2:40
Yea if you'replaying CBS
I don't think he's a C anywhere else

Any advice for grilling a flat iron steak tonight?
Brad Johnson
2:40
Gas or charcoal?
2:41
Any access to an Aaron Sanchez fastball as a secondary heat source?
Guest

Would you drop any of these to pick up Fulmer? Teheran, J Ross, Roark, Aaron Sanchez, Carrasco, Hammel
Brad Johnson
2:41
Teheran won't win a damn game until he's traded
not convinced he'll be dealt
Roark is dropable
never consider dropping Carrasco
never
Jack

Gattis is effectively what Schwarber was last year?
Brad Johnson
2:41
Well, no, not that
Adam
2:42
Got offered E.Suarez, Wei Yin Chen, and CarGo for Fielder, A.Russell, and Eovaldi.
Brad Johnson
2:42
Do it
CarGo is the only decent player in the whole bunch
Suarez is probably second best
Mark
2:42
Who finishes with the most saves out of the 'Stros BP?
Brad Johnson
2:42
I'll go with the lamest option and say Gregerson
Slow Rollers
2:42
Brad! is Ozuna here to stay? top 20 outfielder?
Brad Johnson
2:43
Let's call him top 35 for now
He has the upside to be top 20 but he's disappeared on us before
