So, Danny Duffy, eh? When will he start getting credit for what he's done since returning to rotation.
Brad Johnson
2:44
has he been secretly good?
5 starts, 3.60 ERA, 5 IP per start, 10.08 K/9
When the walk rate regresses to normal, he'll look even worse
Drew
2:44
Arenado or Bryant in keeper league?
Brad Johnson
2:44
Arenado
You're such a Posey
2:45
Posey has been pretty quiet this season. Any concerns?
Brad Johnson
2:45
He was quiet for half of last year too
not worried
I'll take a 108 wRC+ from an "underperforming" catcher
then again, I never pay early round rates for Posey
I trade for him later
Dale
2:46
In need of a power bat that can also generate some steals. Any good buy-low candidates, or anyone you see maintaining their pace?
Brad Johnson
2:46
we're winding down, I'm going to take a moment to research this
Oh, I know
free guy - Robbie Grossman
Keep an eye on the K rate. As long it's sub 22% (ish), he's an everyday starter with 15+ HR power and 10+ SB speed
Scooter
2:47
In a vacuum, Polanco = what range of starting pitcher in a trade. Scherzer? Cueto? Carrasco?
Brad Johnson
2:47
Anybody besides Kershaw
might need a small throw-in for Arrieta
rest should be 1-for-1
Alex
2:47
Still think Pomeranz is still a reliever type? Looks pretty elite so far, obviously overperforming but his 2.99 FIP is still solid
Brad Johnson
2:48
My dynasty co-owner says I over-fixate on repertoire
I think it's a feature
these no repertoire guys never last
but he is doing Rich Hill things and it seems like the league doesn't hit that anymore
Todd
2:48
following up...Drop Drury for Bregman?
Brad Johnson
2:49
You can depending upon constraints and opp cost
Snowflake
2:49
Did Paxton sleep with your girlfriend?
Josh
2:49
Correa - O/U 28 HR
Brad Johnson
2:49
Under
I picked 22
28 is possible (obviously)
2:50
Going back to Paxton, I'm going to stick with the body of work over one good start
Curtis
2:50
Are there any consistently good players you just won't draft?
Brad Johnson
2:51
It's not won't so much as can't
Posey for example just always goes before I'm ready for a catcher
some unique leagues not withstanding
2:52
I wanted Bryant this year, but Arenado and Machado were always still available when I had the option
Nolan
2:52
McCutchen + Arrieta OR Trout + Stroman ROS in H2H points league?
