I'll say benintendi, but that's mostly because Gurriel could be just about anything
and most of anything is a range of bad outcomes

Carlos Martinez (my team) vs Edwin Diaz and Wainwright or Maeda ? Good move for the rest of season or not enough ?
Brad Johnson
1:58
take Diaz and Waino

General fantasy league question for you: when setting a trade deadline, isn’t it wise to always have it after the MLB deadline? About half the teams in one of my leagues are now without their closers and I’m holding 6 that I can’t trade, but I don’t want to drop.
Brad Johnson
1:59
uh, yea
In my opinion, the fantasy trade deadline should be around 9/15
8/30 on the early side

Needed to open up a roster spot so I traded 4 years of Urias and 4 years of Severino for 5 years of Moncada? By how much did I overpay?
Brad Johnson
1:59
No that's a shrewd move
not overpayment at all, pitchers are so flammable

What do we do with Max Kepler? Top 30 OFer ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:00
I have to answer that conundrum for myself. Was offered EE (non keeper) for $7 to keep Kepler (+$7 per season)
My team is 4th and needs offense
2:01
the one thing I'll say about Kepler, he's risen to the competition at every level
always looks like he should stall at the next stop and then he adjusts
2:02
The stat guy in me says to expect regression in the ISO ASAP
fresh basil

Poured resources into speculative saves since I'm way out this year. Looks like I'm hitting on Edwin Diaz. Thoughts Cam Bedrosians follows?
Brad Johnson
2:02
very likely
Street's awful

Maybe a question for Eric, but do any of the prospects/youngins dealt yesterday/recently see playing time this year? Dilson Herrera maybe? Susac probably?
Brad Johnson
2:02
Susac should start immediately
he's a 26 year old
2:03
not a prospect, just a guy who should be in the majors
I would say Herrera should be up, but the Reds didn't shed Cozart or Phillips
so they'll probably leave him in Triple-A one more year
2:04
let's see...
Tilson should get a Sept. call up
he's MLB ready
good 4th or 5th outfielder
2:05
kinda Jon Jay-ish with speed and better plate discipline
RE2PECT
2:05
And are any of them fantasy relevant?
Brad Johnson
2:05
Tilson could help with SB
2:06
Susac is great for 2C leagues. Similar to Cameron Rupp

In my 18 team 5 year keeper league I was offered Tanner Roark for my JBJ (both have same keeper status). I need pitching but I can do better, right?
Brad Johnson
2:06
Yea, much better
if you're going for it, target a big name non-keeper instead
make a difference in your bid to win
2:07
if you're just floating near contention, then prioritize hitters over pitchers

If Salazar is hurt, is Clevinger or Anderson worth a shot in AL-only?
