I might try to hang onto all 3 if possible
They all have warts so it's nice to have the flexibility to adjust as needed later

Baseball America just ranked Turner ahead of Swanson. Would you agree?
Brad Johnson
1:51
not for fantasy purposes. I don't get the Turner love.
I'm clearly not seeing something everybody else is
1:52
looks like a good utility player to me
Eric

What are the chances we see a SD trade that brings up Renfroe? Who good to do you think he can be? .250-.260 with 20-25 HR in a full season?
Brad Johnson
1:52
It's about 50/50 between Margot and Renfroe for the first call up
Margot has a vastly superior skill set. Renfroe's kinda fringy without some improvements
1:53
it's definitely possible they'll trade 2 outfielders away

I need a 3B upgrade in my 10-teamer. Trade Kluber for Verlander and Justin Turner?
Brad Johnson
1:53
I don't hate it, but that formats so shallow that you can probably just wait out a 3B on the wire
Slamboni
1:53
better Seattle dynasty stash, DJ Peterson or Tyler O'Neill?
Brad Johnson
1:53
O'Neill

In my keeper league, 1/2 season of strasburg for 4 of Urias if I'm going for it this year?
Brad Johnson
1:54
ooh that hurts, you're trading Urias?
you have to calc the value added, I can't advise you based on this info
1:55
if Strasburg's giving you $50 EV, then you may have to suffer without Urias
if it's $5, just keep the stud prospect
Eric
1:55
Is this just a trade audition for Reynaldo Lopez? Who would you compare him to based on his likely MLB stats?
Brad Johnson
1:55
Vince Velasquez maybe? With way worse command and fringier secondary stuff
Avi
1:56
Conforto is in a platoon still. Until Lagares cools off or he learns 1B/3B.
Brad Johnson
1:56
Right, I think I only recommended him over Gallo though if memory serves
Pops
1:56
I just traded away Glasnow, Francis Martes, and Dylan Bundy for Andrew Benintendi, Yohander Mendez, and Michael Feliz in a fairly deep dynasty. Thoughts?
Brad Johnson
1:56
Love it. I always convert pitching into hitting when I can
Jimmy Sak
1:56
Carrasco, Kluber, Quintana, Pomeranz, Hamels, Maeda, Leake . . . which two are the worst ROS?
Brad Johnson
1:57
First, one of those is not even slightly like the others. (Leake). I'd say Pom or Maeda for the other
Anthony
1:57
In a keeper, do you think I could move Buxton and VMart for a decent pitcher (that I wouldn't keep)...such as like DeGrom, or Lester?
Brad Johnson
1:57
depends on the keeper depth and rules, probably looking slightly higher
Eric
1:58
Trying to trade Choo or Odubel straight up for pitching w Pence and Fowler coming back. Is Bauer or DeSclafani reaching too high? Maybe Guerra?
Brad Johnson
1:58
Odubel is much better than Choo now. They might be comparable on a rate basis, but Choo can't stay healthy
go ahead and get a Guerra or DeSclafani for Choo. Keep Odubel.
Borxa Dork
1:58
What do you make of Dickerson quietly getting PT in SD and might he be sneaky value this year and into next?
Brad Johnson
1:58
I don't see it happening
1:59
he'll be a 4th OFer behind Margot, Renfore, and others
Josh
1:59
I have the opportunity to trade away Jose Abreu and Kang for Pujols and Justin Turner. Do I do this ASAP? Tired of waiting for Abreu.
Brad Johnson
1:59
No, be patient or negotiate a better deal.
Steve-O
1:59
What do you think a peak Dahl-comp looks like?
Brad Johnson
1:59
I need moment to think about this one
2:01
somewhere between 2014 Ian Desmond and 2011 Dustin Pedroia
