90 wRC+ if memory serves
Arcia will steal some bases, and it's not like he was bad at Triple-A
his skill set is singles, plate discipline, and running
it's not all that exciting fantasy wise
Lindor 2.0 is a pipe dream, there's no looming power outbreak
Russell Archer

Do you figure the reason some teams who should've sold (Phils, Braves, possibly Astros) that didn't figure they can wait for the winter where the SP market is, well, headlined by Brett Anderson?
Brad Johnson
2:17
For the Phillies specifically, I think Klentak was proving he wouldn't back down when he believed in his asking price
I don't think the Braves held anybody they could have traded
2:18
I mean they could have dealt Teheran, but he's probably more valuable to them
For all I complain about pitchers imploding, you do need to gamble on some of them
fyi, I'm 15 minutes behind on comments, but I'm not going to skip forward just yet
2:19
y'all are asking interesting questions today :)

How far apart are Machado and Franco with Manny not running anymore?
Brad Johnson
2:19
Still pretty far

Sure is

Couldn't the PTBNL change the perception of the Milwaukee side?
Brad Johnson
2:19
Yea, usually isn't a big name, but you never know
fresh basil

People in Pittsburgh are up in arms over every trade. I like them all.
Brad Johnson
2:20
I gave Dejan some shit for a particularly whinny article
they're fine
different than everyone else, but that's where Pittsburgh operates
2:21
I really like Felipe Rivero. I think he can be a good starter even if they want to give it a try
closer if not
the Hutch trade was weird
I liked Reese but Ramirez is a weird prospect
I guess they're betting on not needing a C for the length of Cervelli's deal

Trade Cody Allen for a lesser-but-entrenched closer like Estevez/Colome? Need saves, lost most of mine in the real life trades. Or does Allen still get plenty of save opps even with Miller in the picture? Situation seems cloudy.
Brad Johnson
2:22
The future is...clouded
Josh
2:22
Is Edwin Diaz immediately an upper tier closer? Try to sell Will Harris if I picked up Diaz as a replacement?
Brad Johnson
2:22
yep, instant top 10
Going back to the Allen question, I would consider him for Colome, not for Estevez
Alex
2:23
ROS Bregman or Benintendi?
Brad Johnson
2:23
I'll jump ship to Benintendi
only because I think Bregman's going to get demoted once Gurriel is ready
Joel

I traded Goldy for Harper in the middle of May. Make me feel better.
Brad Johnson
2:23
I have a deal in principle for Goldy. It's a weird one
2:24
going to press accept when the chat is done
2:25
I'm the rebuilding owner, and I'm sending $8 Mazara, VMart, Solarte, $15 Matz, and $22 Archer for $43 Goldy, $8 Bedrosian (assuming he gets CL job), and cuts.
My roster is overloaded with $8 studs like Story, Lamb, Dahl, Benintendi, Bregman, Contreras, Profar ($8 is the minimum keeper price).
