Howdy folks, let's get this under way
I briefly considered using only plagiarized responses for this chat, but that seemed like a lot of effort

Drop Smyly for DeSclafani in a 10 team roto?
Brad Johnson
1:44
Smyly is streamer only in 12 team or less leagues. DeSclafani is probably a similar asset
so...yes, but don't plan to hold Desclafani

Should I be worried about Cole Hamels? Fielding independent metrics still look pretty shaky based on walk rate and don't seem to be trending better. Eno et al still peg him as a top 20-30 SP but is it time to sell?
Brad Johnson
1:44
I'm with Eno et al
That said, he's iffy enough that I'd constantly be looking to sell high
you can get lucky with similar production from someone much cheaper

Been stashing Bregman in an AL 10 tm dynasty. I'm worried that HOU might trade him (risk is to an NL team) and with hype so high, should I consider selling?
Brad Johnson
1:45
Listen, but only pull the trigger on a monster offer. I DOUBT they sell Bregman for anyone short of a monster

Is it officially time to cut bait with Smyly? 12 team Mixed 6x6 H2H. My only reluctance is that I dumped Matt Moore at the height of his struggles and now he's doing great.
Brad Johnson
1:46
There's always a chance these guys rebound. Don't worry about Moore though, he'll decline again

Lopez is just getting one start and then is being sent back down for Ross/Giolito?
Brad Johnson
1:46
That's my thought. Haven't seen it confirmed.
but I don't expect Lopez to thrive in the majors
not until he has a command breakout

Who has a better second half Conforto or Pence?
Brad Johnson
1:47
I'll say Pence without checking in on his rehab progress
I'm out of touch on him because I own 0 shares
BT
1:47
Pick two for ROS - Mazara, Pence, Brantley? H2H points league
Brad Johnson
1:47
I'll go with the vets. Mazara needs an adjustment. Hard to bet on those

Nothing to do with AJ Reed this season or be patient with him?
Brad Johnson
1:47
I didn't think he was ready when they promoted him
turns out he isn't

When does Manual Margot get called up?
Brad Johnson
1:48
whenever they dump Kemp and/or Upton

Been holding Gallo for a while because I'm in an OBP league. What do you think the chances of him getting playing time whether it's through call-up or trade? What do you see his OBP and power like ROS? Please don't use plagiarized responses!

Conforto or Gallo ROS (after august 1st)
Brad Johnson
1:48
Conforto because I don't see Gallo getting more than 25 PA RoS

Just traded away Thor in exchange for Jon Lester and Adam Jones. Did I do good?
Brad Johnson
1:49
eh, it's solid risk management especially if the cut was somebody bad
I'm usually swapping in the other direction

Willson Contreras. What are your thoughts? Will his k rate normalize? Is he a keeper in a 20 team/keep-8 league?
Brad Johnson
1:49
absolutely a keeper
not enough data to make sense of his strikeouts
1:50
it's weird to see a spike that extreme though
John

12 team keeper, looking to upgrade my offense for the stretch run. My salazar for his edwin encarnacion fair? Or selling too low on salazar?
Brad Johnson
1:50
steal for you

I'm in a 12-team H2H categories league with 2B, SS, and MI slots. I currently have Javier Baez and Eugenio Suarez in my SS and MI slots now, with Panik coming off the DL in a few days time. Out of those three, which two would you roster? OBP league
