Alright folks let's get the ball rolling. Looks like there's a smaller group hanging out today
JD
2:29
I've got a hole at 1B who do you like: Matt Adams, Pedro Alvarez, Valbuena or Cron?
Brad Johnson
2:29
Alvarez is swinging a hot bat now and we know he's streaky
Marian
2:29
Hi! Your thoughts on Jose Peraza as a possible 2B moving forward? Do you think he will stay up and play every day? Thank you!
Brad Johnson
2:30
He'll stay up, I see him as a good utility guy rather than an every day sort
Thor's Daddy

Can Syndergaard still be effective while pitching through a bone spur?
Brad Johnson
2:30
The majority of MLB pitchers have a bone spur in their elbow. I'm told it's a result of pitching while growing
Nolan
2:30
Josh Reddick coming off the D.L. today. Is he a 10-team bat for you?
Brad Johnson
2:30
Not quite. He's a streamer in that size league
JD
2:30
What are realistic expectations for Giolito over the rest of the year? How many starts will he get?
Brad Johnson
2:31
That's tricksy because it's performance based. Let's say he gets 15 starts. Probably looking at a 4.25 ERA with 8.75 K/9 and 4.50 BB/9.
there is breakout potential such that he could be massively better
2:32
but that's roughly the median projection
JalapEno
2:32
Willson Contreras will be a Top X catcher the rest of the way?
Brad Johnson
2:32
3-5
He'll play every day and that does a lot on it's own
as long as he keeps hitting 4-5, he'll high quality
A
2:32
How do you feel about Devon Travis ros after his recent surge?
Brad Johnson
2:33
I'm a Travis fan. I sold a bunch of shares prior to the season because I got awesome value (Scherzer, pre-injury Pollock), but I'd love to have him in more leagues
CJM
2:33
Jose Fernandez for CarGo and DeGrom, am I crazy to say no?
Brad Johnson
2:33
Not crazy, but if it's a redraft, you have to remember he's going to pitch less and less as the season goes on
Gavin
2:34
10 team roto. Not a sniff of saves on WW. Trade jJake Lamb and Betances for Oh? Need the saves and could pick up Alvarez instead of Lamb
Brad Johnson
2:34
Sure. 10 team leagues are so shallow that you're sometimes forced to do sub-optimal things. Though I wonder if there are better targets than Oh
Zach
2:34
Matt Shoemaker is a top ____ pitcher ROS? Do you prefer him or Nola?
Brad Johnson
2:35
I prefer Shoemaker now. The thing is, he's a splitter specialist. If he loses the feel for it again, he goes back to bad Shoemaker
Lars
2:35
A.J. Reed worth rostering in 10-teamers?
Brad Johnson
2:35
Nah, you won't regret passing on him in a redraft. Unless you're already trotting out somebody bad that is...
eddie
2:35
Just sent Sano, Sonny Gray and Profar for Corey Seager, Tyler Glasnow and Matt Weiters.... did I win that deal or sell too low on two guys?
Brad Johnson
2:36
Keeper I assume. I kind of like both sides of this one. Lot of room for either of you to feel like big winners in a few years
Munenori kawasaki
2:36
Hello Mr Johnson, fan of your work with the bucs
Brad Johnson
2:36
I'll never escape it
Ray
2:36
Drew Smyly - buy low or stay away?
Brad Johnson
2:36
stay away. The division is just so hard
Pat
2:36
Do you think Sano will rebound?
Brad Johnson
2:37
He already had rebounded when he hit the skids
so yes, I think he'll be fine in his own special flawed kind of way
Seth
2:37
would you trade britton for schwarber+buxton+gregerson? keeper league (1 yr of schwarber @$10, 2 yr of buxton @$19) 16 teams and i am competitive but way out in saves
Brad Johnson
2:38
without knowing the keep situation on Britton, I'd probably pass on this
Avi
2:38
Brad, isn't the bone spur surgery at this point of the year a season ending injury?
Brad Johnson
2:38
surgery is, yes. But you can pitch with a spur unless it's grinding on something
