16 team dynasty, which side do you prefer, Semien & Arenado or the Seager bros?
Brad Johnson
2:36
My gut says I love both sides
push
2:37
eh, maybe Arenado a little more if you don't mind Semien's weird production
he only puts up stats when I'm not looking

Nikola Jokic or Jusuf Nurkic longterm? I lean Juka for his rim protection, but Big Honey has a more advanced offensive game

Who are these hockey players playing basketball?

re: Cueto for Robles, Kingham, Barnes, etc. Who wins?
Brad Johnson
2:38
That's a "time will tell scenario"
ostensibly both of you
2:39
whoever took the prospects is rebuilding, right?
so Cueto is worthless to them
whoever took Cueto is going for it so he's worth a lot

Will Ryan Dull be a top 20 closer?
Brad Johnson
2:39
sure, that's not saying much right now
2:40
Jim Johnson and Tony Cingrani are closers...
Do expect regression re: Dull

Looking for an emerging holds guy in the AL. Any thoughts?
Brad Johnson
2:40
I assume you missed Edwin Diaz
2:41
Keep an eye on the Astros, Indians, and Red Sox bullpens
they're most likely to give you a new holds option
oh and maybe Rangers
Hans

Hang onto Tyler Clippard or drop him for a trade deadline spec closer (Thornberg, Neris-types)?
Brad Johnson
2:42
hold

Huston Street still worth a roster spot in 10-team blood-for-saves formats?
Brad Johnson
2:42
somebody's roster, yes
not necessarily yours
with guys like Street, you roster them if you must have the saves
but don't stash them if they're extraneous
instead, let them damage your opponents' ratios
2:43
and if you have somebody you need to prevent from getting saves, stash then trade for nothing to somebody who won't give him to your rival

What do you expect a typical Contreras stat line to look like over the next few years? Do the Cubs find a way to keep his bat in the lineup when he's not catching?
Brad Johnson
2:43
They'll still have Montero, so yes, I do think Contreras will get time in LF
2:44
I don't know what to make of his strikeouts right now
very out of character
I'll punt predicting future performance until I decide what I believe regarding those punchouts

Despite Mazara's recent struggles, how would you rank him in a Dynasty league? Top 40 asset?
