I'll take JoFery for that price. Of course, you'll feel some pain during playoffs, but that's overstated. Get there first

Archer, worth a hold in a 10 team league?
Brad Johnson
3:08
he shouldn't be on waivers. But it hurts to use him...rough situation
I have him in so many leagues too
Minty

Is Gallo in the majors before or after the trade deadline?
Brad Johnson
3:09
After. They're keeping him down for gamesmanship purposes.
Eric

What do you think of Suarez? Decent MI in 12-team league, or more of a back-end guy?
Brad Johnson
3:09
Yea he's a starting MI in 12 team for sure
probably 10 team leagues too if they have MI

16 team dynasty league - someone in one of my friends leagues traded Kolby Allard, Triston Mckenzie and Mychal Givens for Maeda. Fair?
Brad Johnson
3:10
Probably, they're going to hate themselves in a few years though. I hope Maeda really solves a problem

Sam Dyson or Papelbon ROS? H2H points league.

I know this isn't a prospects chat but, any thoughts on Ryon Healy? Worth an add on the WW in a 14 team dynasty? Thanks.
Brad Johnson
3:10
Absolutely
go grab him now in that format
Now, I have reservations about his team/home stadium/division
3:11
but he's a solid power prospect

How do you decide which questions to answer? What type of questions are you most likely to respond to?
Brad Johnson
3:11
haha good one! Well I mostly just go in order until I realize I'm 15 minutes behind the post time
then I skip forward
I don't answer any question that asks me to rank X players
3:12
they're invariably either the same asset class or just a really weird list
Otherwise, I only skip questions if it would take a lot of research to offer a valid opinion
Minty
3:12
Gamesmanship as in Gallo was dogging it?
Brad Johnson
3:13
Mostly it's about trading. If Gallo is in the minors, they can claim they don't have any pressing needs for leverage purposes. They can also point to his improvements in the minors this year when shopping him without worrying about him going 0-for-12 with 10 strikeouts in the majors

Michael Saunders or Choo ROS? H2H points league.
Brad Johnson
3:13
Saunders
Gary

Bregman. When?
Brad Johnson
3:14
September is my guess
Eric

Follow up on Hoff's Gausman theory: you mentioned grabbing "enough Gausman's" and hoping for a breakout. What other pitchers likely available in 12 team leagues would fit that category?
Brad Johnson
3:15
off the top of my head, Conley, E-Rod, Pineda, Ray, Smyly, Fiers, Nelson, Eovaldi, yordano,
Mick D
3:15
D-Backs pitching is iffy, especially miller and Corbin. Ray isn't all that dependable either. Is Brandon Shipley a likely call-up soon?
Brad Johnson
3:16
Maybe, but he doesn't improve anything. It's not like he's going to displace one of them barring DL
Joe
3:16
Trevor Bauer a hold or a stream in 10-team?
Brad Johnson
3:16
hold
or buy
all formats
Yostian

I was excited to use my No. 1 waivers claim for Lorenzo Cain in a 10-teamer and got him...only to see no one else put in a claim. I should still be excited, right?
Brad Johnson
3:17
Yea I think that's fine. We used our number 1 waiver for Chase Utley in 20 team dynasty just in case Ben Zobrist falls in a hole
