Why do you still have Duda, he broke in half
Bour will be pretty boring - 110 wRC+, some power, some run production
I like streaming him in hitters parks
Baby Bears
2:47
Justin Bour - Trade while he's peaking or hold the rest of the way?
Brad Johnson
2:48
Another Bour question - I don't think anyone is buying high here
Bart
2:48
What should I do with Francisco Liriano, drop or hold?
Brad Johnson
2:48
Depends on league depth, we've benched him in our 20-team league
John C.
2:48
Who would you prefer ROS Rendon or Valencia?
Brad Johnson
2:48
Rendon
Valencia does offer more power and could be traded into a good situation
Nolan
2:49
Would you trade Bryant for Scherzer if you had Piscotty and Sano to fill the vacant OF spot? My rotation would include Thor, Kershaw, and Scherzer.
Brad Johnson
2:49
eh, I don't think I would
depends on your needs, but I doubt you really need the pitching if you have Kershaw and Thor
unless the rest of your staff is Ivan Nova clones
Eric
2:50
If you had to keep one, who would it be? Melancon (11th round) or Dyson (14th round)? How much do you buy Dyson's recent run? Thanks
Brad Johnson
2:50
Oh I buy Dyson completely. No need to make a decision on which to keep. Revisit at the end of the season
Dirk
2:50
What's the probability Kelley keeps his current job? Is he worth keeping in holds league over Herrera or Strop?
Brad Johnson
2:51
I like Kelley but Papelbon seems to be recovering fine last I checked
As for the holds, they're all the same asset class
Eric
2:51
Jon Jay went down and the Padres still didn't call up Renfroe. Is he ever gonna get a shot this year?
Brad Johnson
2:52
No idea tbh. I'm not really expecting much from him. If memory serves, he's got about a 2 WAR upside without the power or speed to be a fantasy dynamo. I'll go confirm
Ah, bit of a power spike this year
2:53
Still probably a 20 HR guy at Petco, it's murder on righties
plate discipline is a minus
he's bad Nick Williams
Eric
2:53
How worried are you about Thor? Should we be looking to deal?
Brad Johnson
2:54
Not especially. It's a concern that he gets some inflammation from it. Terrified of Matz if anyone was thinking to ask about him as a follow up
As I mentioned earlier. Most pitchers have bone spurs in the elbow. Only affects a few
Kershaw does for example
JD
2:54
Kolten Wong rebound in 2nd half?
Brad Johnson
2:54
I sure hope so
I have no helpful analysis with regard to Wong
Broseph
2:55
What are your thoughts on Travis Janowski, in light of Jay's DL stint? Could he hold down the job and steal 20 ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:55
possibly, but everything else will probably hurt
Joe
2:55
Time for my weekly Maikel Franco check-in. So much upside, yet a difficult hold in 10-team. Advice?
Brad Johnson
2:55
I'm starting to look beyond 2016 for him
2:56
stay patient unless a much shinier option appears
Zach
2:56
Ubaldo's ownership in GPP's tonight?
Brad Johnson
2:57
I'll say 7% in the FanDuel Squeeze. 40% on DraftKings where he has a ridiculous price
Christian
2:57
Super competitive keeper league, and always lots of speculating. I picked up Benintendi because I simply can't miss out on what this dude could be. When do you see him up?
