it's just a matter of pain tolerance then
Pat
2:38
Is Sonny Gray more the last 5 starts or more the first 10?
Brad Johnson
2:38
I'll take the last 5

Thoughts on Dylan Bundy, looks like the Orioles are gradually stretching him out. I'm in a deep 16 team league, should I speculative add hoping he starts after ASB? How many innings does he get ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:39
I don't know that he has enough talent at present to start in the AL East. That doesn't mean you shouldn't speculate on him, but I see few scenarios where you want him in your lineup
Manta
2:39
Stephen Piscotty still worth a hold in shallower formats?
Brad Johnson
2:40
I think so. But his modest power/no speed profile is kind of like Yasiel Puig in that it REALLY hurts when he's off
Joe
2:40
Sell Villar now while his value is high or ride him all season
Brad Johnson
2:40
I'm holding/buying. Yea, he's going to regress in BABIP, but the rest of the profile is stable
and he'll still run wild
Jake
2:40
Who do you like more tonight: Kluber or Greinke? Either or both worth the price in DFS?
Brad Johnson
2:41
Love 'em both, and yes, they're worth the price of admission
JD
2:41
How much of JBJ's performance is sustainable in the 2nd half? He won't have another ~30 game hit streak but is he still a top 15 OF?
Brad Johnson
2:41
top 15 may be a stretch, he's probably a streaky guy at this point
don't be surprised if he goes very cold
or he could warm up again
how's that for helpful?
JT

Who finishes the year as the Reds closer? Lorenzen?
Brad Johnson
2:41
Iglesias
Joe D

In a keeper forever league: what to do about struggling outfielders puig, j.pederson, and buxton?
Brad Johnson
2:42
Hang tight on Buxton and Pederson. I'd start looking around on Puig. Someone probably wants to overpay on a buy low
Clifton
2:42
Danny Valencia sufficient as my 10-team 3B, or should I be seeking an upgrade?
Brad Johnson
2:42
He's replacement level in that format. So yes, search for upgrades
m
2:42
have berrios, will sell. what should i be looking for in a non-keeper starter?
Brad Johnson
2:44
kinda depends on keeper costs, league type, etc. I'd probably target like a John Lackey/Jason Hammel type
solid 4 cat production
non-ace
Seth
2:44
i drafted chen and corbin (bad), stras and teheran (good), traded for harvey (meh)--do corbin and chen find a way to turn around--or should i be hunting for more pitching?
Brad Johnson
2:44
Hunt. Chen might recover but Corbin looks wrong
Jose Reyes
2:44
1. Is Terry Collins an idiot for batting me leadoff? 2. Does that make me relevant in 10/12 teamers?
Brad Johnson
2:45
1. Absolutely 2. Nah
So I was out on Jose Reyes as a 12 team SS before the whole domestic abuse thing
I think he's gone full Jimmy Rollins, he's done as a starting quality player
we'll see what he has to say about it
John
2:46
Thoughts on Paxton? His FIP is still gorgeous but his starts are getting progressively worse and someone on twitter noticied he's not throwing the curve anymore. Still worth holding onto in a 10 teamer?
Brad Johnson
2:46
Yea, he's got upside with that new velocity. But there are a lot of pieces to the puzzle.
He's had problems with being hittable/predictable in the past
John C.
2:46
What tier pitcher would you be looking for in exchange for AJ Reed? Verlander in the ballpark?
Brad Johnson
2:46
Redraft? Sure. Keeper? More.
Tim
2:47
What does Justin Bour look like ROS? Worth dropping Duda for?
