Is there one SP not named Kershaw you would trade Betts for in a 10 team keep forever league?
Brad Johnson
2:42
no
not sure I'd trade him for Kershaw
he's eventually going to be injured
and then he's probably going to be less good
and by injured, I mean seriously

Traded my bogaerts osuna and saunders for scherzer and russell in a 12 team standard h2h. I needed pitching help badly and my offense is still in really good shape without X. Thoughts?
Brad Johnson
2:43
I don't love it, but pitching can be so huge in H2H
I have a keeper league where I got Kluber, Carrasco, Fernandez, and Arrieta years ago
been placing just from their numbers

Ryu is going to see team doctors: Elbow Inflammation.
Bill

Kershaw still your #1 SP ROS, even with health uncertainty?
Brad Johnson
2:44
yep

Eickhoff enough of a return if I trade Estevez and Kelley in dynasty 12 tm?
Brad Johnson
2:44
yea I think so. Not that I'm a huge fan of Eickhoff, but I don't see much of value on the other end
2:45
Estevez needs a breakout

Currently in first in NL only league, need 2 rotation anchors. Choices include Arrieta, Strasburg, Wainwright. Who should I go with?
Brad Johnson
2:45
The first 2
Tim
2:45
Hanley or Rendon RoS?
Brad Johnson
2:45
uh do you need ceiling or reliability?
Hanley's the ceiling play
Josh

I'm middle of the pack in SB but my two top thieves thus far have been Harper and J Ramirez. Do you think Harper keeps this pace or would you look to acquire speed?
Brad Johnson
2:46
Can't hurt to add more speed if you're mid pack. Just try to do it without hurting other categories
Josh
2:46
If the Dodgers were to acquire Forsythe, would the PT be there to maintain relevance in 12 teamers?
Brad Johnson
2:46
They wouldn't pay for him if he wasn't starting
not sure why they would pay for him though

Clarification: Does Baez have enough of a role to warrant being restored as my only 2nd?
Brad Johnson
2:47
it's right on the tightrope
your specific category needs matter

5x5 OBP Re-draft League: My Zobrist/Bregman for his Kipnis/Jim Johnson. Fair?
Brad Johnson
2:47
eww, no
Chopper Dave
2:47
Betts or Arenado in standard keeper leagues?
Brad Johnson
2:48
Betts for that five category gold. So much easier to manage a lineup around a guy like Betts or Altuve
ok time to wrap this up...

Is Lester to little in return for my Springer in a 10-team keep forever league? Have an OF to spare, need another SP, and SP are way overvalued in my league. Currently in 1st, going for it all
Brad Johnson
2:48
way too little
2:49
try to get Kyle hendricks for a lesser OFer
Zorak

Is catcher really this much of a wasteland? My current choices between my roster and the wire are Martin, Hundley, Gattis and Jaso (C qualified). Forget who I can bank on ROS, who can I bank on for the next few weeks at least?
Brad Johnson
2:49
those aren't bad options
Jaso highest floor, Gattis highest ceiling, Martin in between
