Howdy folks. Let's get this things started.
Any deadline chatter before we get down to fantasy team questions?
Michael

trade marcell ozuna for david price in a 12 team keeper?
Brad Johnson
1:45
All else equal, sure.
Red Dawn
1:45
Do you see any possibility of Jumbo Diaz or Michael Lorenzen taking over as closer this year?
Brad Johnson
1:45
Maybe Lorenzen. I think they're happy with flaky Cingrani.
Rusty

McCullers vs. Quintana. ROS which do you prefer? (5 x 5 league with QS instead of W).
Brad Johnson
1:45
Quintana's the higher floor option, but I do love me some McCullers
Michael

12 team keeper league. My bench position currently rotates between carlos santana, danny valencia, and marcell ozuna. I have a chance to acquire votto for a future 5th round pick. Is votto enough of an upgrade to justify this move?
Brad Johnson
1:46
Not really. I don't think the cost is bad, but Santana is nearly as good
Punky Brewster
1:46
Which Brewers bullpen arms do you think get traded by the deadline?
Brad Johnson
1:46
Thornberg and Smith
1:47
think they're asking too much for Jeremy Jeffress
he's basically a harder throwing Jeanmar Gomez
OddBall Herrera
1:47
Jonathan Villar is up to #7 on the ESPN player rater in late July, yet still < 80% owned. Are people just getting too cute about BABIP regression?
Brad Johnson
1:47
he should be owned
every league, every non-razz format
Pablo

I have Raisel Iglesias in a dynasty. What's his role next year - closer, long relief, swingman, rotation, other?
Brad Johnson
1:47
rotation
1:48
they're not letting him close now specifically because they don't want questions about starting or closing
he's obviously head and shoulders better than anyone else in that bullpen.
Probably a top 10 closer if he had the role
but he'll start next year
Timmy
1:49
Dull is currently available in my league - would you drop either Kelvin Herrera or Edwin Diaz for him? It's a redraft league.
Brad Johnson
1:49
No
Stick with the better pitchers
well, I'll amend that, how desperate are you for saves?
if you really need them, then Dull is more likely to get them
daneyko

Darvish is a decent target for the ROS ? Currently 1st in my league and I could send some prospect or pick for Darvish. High risk ?
Brad Johnson
1:49
high risk, high reward
Mr. Pitt
1:49
Do you think the Pirates trade away Melancon by the deadline?
Brad Johnson
1:50
no, inertia is a bitch
The Cincinnati Kid
1:50
Dahl's slash line ROS? Dahl's slash line next year?
Brad Johnson
1:50
I'm not sure Dahl's in the majors after the current series
probably back in September, we'll see
1:51
I see huge production, but prospects usually take time - peak could look like 100/25/100/20/.265
that's probably out in 2018-19
Noah Syndegaard
1:51
Am I risky at $35 till next season? If I repeat another stellar season how many year would you extend me at $40
Brad Johnson
1:51
all pitchers are risky, you're no worse than most of them
I'd play it one year at a time though
