Hey folks, let's get rolling. Why don't we talk about some real baseball trades for a bit before diving into purely fantasy questions
Toki

Got offered Raji Davis, Danny Espinosa, and Salvador Perez, for my Margot and Willson Cotreras in our 10 team OPS, H2H dynasty league. Which Side do you like? Personally I like my guys more since Espinosa is losing time with Turner up, Davis is almost 36 and never seems to be a starter at the beginning of a season and Contreras seems to have way more offensive upside then Perez.
Brad Johnson
1:46
Contreras is the guy to own in that scenario
NCKLM
1:47
Brad, I was offered J.D. Martinez for Osuna? I'm strong in saves. Worth the risk for J.D.?
Brad Johnson
1:47
I'm a huge JDM fan and he's due back any day now. I'd do it based on your stated needs
Toki
1:47
ny chance the Yankees try to flip Frazier and Judge with other top end prospects for Trout this offseason? MAybe include Severino.
Brad Johnson
1:47
They aren't good enough
1:48
they could try, but they need a high grade established youngster too. Think Odubel Herrera + Frazier/Sev/Judge/Bird/Betances/++
To acquire Mike Trout, I figure you need to offer at least 8 good to very good players
1:49
Red Sox could do it for less with Moncada, Benintendi, Devers as the headline
still need a lot more beyond that
Josh
1:49
Better fantasy prospect, Brinson or Corey Ray?
Brad Johnson
1:49
Not much read on Ray just yet so I'll go with the established guy. Odds are you have better alternatives
Padres
1:50
Was there really no market for Derek Norris?
Brad Johnson
1:50
I guess not? I thought he would go to the Rangers. The Indians deal falling apart probably ruined that
marlin
1:50
Did we screw the Padres on the Rea deal?
Brad Johnson
1:50
So this was a weird one
1:51
They MUST have talked through that exact scenario before executing the first trade. Otherwise they would have shrugged and said too bad
JD
1:51
In a league where saves and holds are equal, the Yankees deals hurt the value of Betances, right? Still great pitcher but less opportunities
Brad Johnson
1:51
I don't see why that would be the case, saves are more numerous than holds
they'll still use him frequently
Josh
1:52
What did you think of what Milwaukee did yesterday? Like the Texas haul better than what they were set to receive from Cleveland?
Brad Johnson
1:52
No, I liked Cleveland's offer a lot more
That said, I thought the Lucroy/Jeffress swap was fine, a bit light based on what the market paid for comparable RP
1:53
Jeffress alone rated Brinson or Ortiz ++
and Lucroy should be worth more than Jeffress I would think
however...just because they could have gotten more doesn't mean it was really a bad deal
Steve
1:54
My Justin Turner for his Anthony Rendon in a 12 team obp/slg league.
Brad Johnson
1:54
If you need a chance for +6 SB and/or a 2B. Otherwise, I prefer Turner in a vacuum
Avi
1:54
So now that Gallo has not been traded, has he been sent down to AAA forever because....
Brad Johnson
1:54
Kinda shocked he wasn't traded. His immediate future is a big ol ???
Ronnie
1:55
Do you think Cleveland may have overpaid for Miller? Given what the Nats ended up giving for Melancon, and knowing what possible injury risk comes with Miller.
Brad Johnson
1:55
Yea, it's the injury risk that does it for me. I'm fine with the deal if the forearm issue wasn't out there
And as long as he helps them run deep into October, it was worth it
1:56
can't count on a rotation first roster to carry you multiple years.
ex. Mets
Mickey Donovan
1:56
Out of it in a H2H 8x8 OBP league, keep 6. Keeping Machado, Correa, Syndegaard. Have to choose 3 of Cespedes, Jackie Bradley, Yelich, Giolito, Bregman, Contreras and Moncada. Help! Trade deadline is in 2 weeks! Thank you.
Brad Johnson
1:57
Well, not Yelich, Giolito, or Contreras. Obviously, I'd try to trade for more Machado-level talents
and I take it back, maybe Yelich if Bregman doesn't adjust at all
Mischa
1:58
Higher upside for fantasy playoffs (pts lg) Gurriel or Benintendi?
