Do you see Miller going to the Cubs, and if so, does he close, as rondon has been great.
Brad Johnson
2:33
I think he sets up in Chicago

I'm in a 6x6 league with balks counting as a possible pitching category. Who's my best bet RoS? Salazar??
Brad Johnson
2:34
balks!?
I'm afraid I've conducted no fantasy analysis related to balks
but yes, a Cleveland pitcher makes sense. Bet on midges
Steve
2:34
Jake Lamb top (blank) player ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:34
50?
2:35
I believe in the breakout, but such pull heavy approaches tend to include holes
I want to believe

Thoughts on Dee Gordon? Most folks seem to think he'll still steal a lot, but if he used PEDs to get faster, wouldn't he be a risky 2B going forward?
Brad Johnson
2:35
I don't see the PEDs as directly affecting his speed right now
the thing to remember about PEDs is that it's easier to maintain a skill than to develop it
2:36
the idea behind their use now is to get better with them and maintain without them

hey brad, thanks for answering my question. as a follow-up, i failed to mention that i'm in contention this year and have a really good shot at winning the whole thing, if my pitching holds up. do you still think i should hang onto reyes and stream, or look to get the best possible SP and win it all this year? it's just that it just seems like so many highly-touted SPs fail to make it. thanks again, brad.
Brad Johnson
2:36
in that case, go ahead and shop him. Just be open to saying no a lot
2:37
I think you said it was a dynasty, you should be able to package Reyes with something else for a huge name

Does Javier Baez find himself a regular role?
Brad Johnson
2:37
He's basically there now. He won't have a regular position any time soon

Villar - #9 on ESPN player rater, leading the league in steals, this late into the season, yet < 80% owned. Have you ever seen a breakout year get treated with such massive skepticism?
Brad Johnson
2:38
Yea it happens, but I can't recall a specific example without going through some leaderboards
Hoff

15 tm mixed roto keep $260 budget - Lindor a keep at $18 for 2017? What about Kang at $1?
Brad Johnson
2:38
Both are way underpriced. Lindor's like a $29 player and Kang probably $14ish pending legal action
Bill
2:38
Keep the faith with Valencia in 10-team redraft, or stream the CI slot he occupies?
Brad Johnson
2:39
You can probably stream in a league that shallow
Patrick
2:39
So you if I got offered JBJ for Bregman in an AL dynasty where keep cost is identical, I should do it?
Brad Johnson
2:39
I don't think so
KD

5x5 NL Keeper (3 years): Arenado or Lester, Giolito, Albies?
Brad Johnson
2:39
Arenado
big time

Baez or Pedoria ROS in a re-draft 12 points league?
Brad Johnson
2:40
Baez on a rate basis, but Pedroia may play more...might depend on your ability to roster a caddy for Baez
Bill

10-team redraft SS challenge trade: Bogaerts for Correa. Who you got?
Brad Johnson
2:40
Correa me
Jake
2:40
I've been rolling w/ Abreu as my 1B... Do I continue or perhaps try to sell him on name value while I still can?
Brad Johnson
2:40
ask around, but don't force the issue
AA
2:40
Steve Pearce worthy of a pickup over Max Kepler in an 7x7 (OPS BB) deep league (15 team)?
Eric
2:41
Do you think Urias will be on an innings limit next year too? Debating keeping him in the 16th round of a 12 team OPS, but 4 of my 7 keepers are already pitchers
Brad Johnson
2:41
I'd hang onto Kepler
and Urias is definitely on an innings cap next year
I'd sell him in that situation
