Would you rather trade Rich Hill for Adam Jones or Johnny Cueto for Jose Bautista in an OPS league? Staff is JoFer, Kluber, Cueto, Hill, Nola, Shoemaker.

Hill
big al kiddie's pal

hi brad, what are your thoughts on alex reyes for this season? is he going to have any kind of impact as a reliever? or should i look to cash in while the hype is still there and try to get like a mid-rotation fantasy option like cashner or keuchel? it's a dynasty league, fyi. thanks.
Brad Johnson
2:17
if it's dynasty, keep him for his future SP innings
2:18
might be the best SP of this current crop of highly touted starters
Wally Balls

Want to move Stanton for Moncada in a keeper league. What level of pitcher should I be asking for in addition to Moncada?
Brad Johnson
2:19
if it's keep forever with minimal costs, maybe a Shoemaker? If costs rise quickly, I'd ask more
Moncada is a monster though

Can we disspell the rumors of Schwarber to the Yankees in return for a RP (either Miller or Chapman)? That seems like an extreme overpay unless the Cubs are convinced that Schwarber can only DH, at which point, it's only an overpay. Thoughts? Thanks.
Brad Johnson
2:19
Schwarber for Miller smell fine to me
obviously, Chapman wouldn't work without an extension
2:20
and there'd be some bits going with Miller

Would you shop Carlos Gonzalez? Been great so far, but BABIP is pretty high (.370s) for a career .330-ish guy, and getting dealt out of Coors would be rough. What's an equivalent target bat or even a buy low you might try?
Brad Johnson
2:20
My experience trying to shop him is that everybody suddenly remembers his health history as soon as they don't own him
2:21
in other words, he's very hard to trade.

hi brad, do you like gausman or pomeranz moving forward in a keeper, fip-based points league? Ks are really good, BBs are bad, HRs are really, really bad, W/L/ER don't matter at all. thanks brad.
Brad Johnson
2:21
I like Pom more. Not a fan of either in a FIP format though
like them both more outside the AL East

Traded my Pedrioa for Aaron Nola and Dee Gordon. Wanted to buy low on Nola while he was slumping and need steals. Thoughts?
Brad Johnson
2:21
Bueno!

Would you prefer Gattis or grandal in a 6x6 (obp and slg)?
Brad Johnson
2:22
Grandal
I keep drinking the kool aid
another bad dynasty manager
2:22
16 team pts. league. Playoff bound. Got an offer of Folty for a prospect and a fifth round draft pick. Take it and not worry about the bone chips?
Brad Johnson
2:22
having trouble imagining Folty as startable against anybody but the Phillies

Thoughts on Y. Solarte? Great batting line so far in 2016, and second half of 2015 was also very nice, too. Perhaps a .280/20/80 guy over a full season?
Brad Johnson
2:23
20 home runs is a stretch for him, but the rest smell reasonable if he's batting cleanup
and 17 HR isn't that far off
the issue is he's a zero in SB
it's hard to roster those these days
Nutmeg

Yes Tyler Anderson plays in Coors, but his skills look great so far (esp GB% and K/BB) despite middling K numbers in the minors. Why not more talk about him?
Brad Johnson
2:24
you answered the question already. Middling talent with a terrible home park
it's nice that he's fully actualized, but that doesn't do much for us fantasy owners
JD
2:24
severino worth a look in the 2nd half?
Brad Johnson
2:25
Yea I have some stashed shares
Pedro
2:25
How valuable is Jackie Bradley in a 12-team keep-10 6x6 (OBP and SLG)? Top-25 OF?
Brad Johnson
2:25
smells about right
Correa
2:25
Would you keep me over C. Seager and Bregman in dynasty?
Brad Johnson
2:25
Over Bregman definitely
why not keep all 3
