I don't know why, but nobody will pay anything for LeMahieu. You'll get so much more from just keeping him
Matt

Am I wrong to try to trade high on Josh Harrison with expectations of running Kinsler out at 2B again? Harrison loses all non-2B elligibility next year, and they're both the same price.
Brad Johnson
2:28
If I understand, you have Harrison and Kinsler, right? Sure, go ahead and trade the utility guy

Mauer Profar or Tommy Joseph ROS for my 1b slot? (Yes I'm desperate)
Brad Johnson
2:28
Profar for AVG, Joseph for HR

Arrieta a top 10 arm ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:28
yes please

Joe Musgrove, any hope he is up this year? besides 2 hiccups in AAA he's steamrolling the MILB. Fiers is definitely replaceable in the rotation, no?
RePete
2:29
Alex Reyes in the rotation at some point this year? Does De Leon get a shot in August?
Brad Johnson
2:29
3 pitching prospects
With Musgrove, I don't think the Astros want to live through his adjustment period mid-pennant race
most command guys get torched in the first few starts
they're not used to how precise they have to be to succeed in the majors
2:30
Reyes isn't pitching very well lately. I think he'll just finish his season in Triple-A and maybe throw a couple games in Arizona
2:31
We should see De Leon soon
poor Dodgers can't get healthy
Umm
2:31
I asked this question (might not have been you) in May and was given a flat no, but do you see Votto finishing with a 300 avg? Currently up to 275 and hitting like 500 since the break and 400 this month.
Brad Johnson
2:31
Wasn't asked to me, I would have said maybe or yes
It's a stretch, but he has enough time to make it close
Yoan Moncada

True or false: Alex Bregman is a keeper in a league that keeps 120.
Brad Johnson
2:31
true
Harris
2:32
The Final Boss get two more saves today?
Brad Johnson
2:32
we'll see!

Why are there still 2 catcher leagues?
Brad Johnson
2:32
Why are there one catcher leagues?
2:33
dumbest format ever. Let's make Ryan Raburn a replacement level outfielder then set Derek Norris as the replacement level at catcher
either make the league shallow or deep, not in-between
tonyc
2:33
Is Alex Dickerson worth grabbing in 10-team mixed now? Upton's gone, and the manager said Renfroe/Margot probably won't be up until September.
Brad Johnson
2:33
Yes
2:34
good upside, might be nothing
but one of the better fliers you can take this time of year
Joe D
2:34
In a keep forever league, how would you rank the following pitchers: G. Cole, Archer, Matz?
Brad Johnson
2:34
That order
Harris
2:34
Ryan Schimpf's power for real?
Brad Johnson
2:34
You're wondering if 5' 9'' Schimpf is a .380 ISO player. No, he's not
2:35
He definitely has good pop for his size, but not at his current rate of production
I expect pitchers to adjust to him any day now
Yes
2:35
I'm in h2h redraft - should I try to buy Kershaw? Is Dyson too much to offer? Michael Fulmer? Please ... help me
Brad Johnson
2:36
Seeing as we have no useful news out of LA, I can't really advise you here
sounds like a desperation move to me
