I don't know that any of that helps you feel better.
Probably not, huh?

Question about fantasy and real life: Does Miller assume the full-time closer role? He's clearly the better pitcher but might he be more valuable as a high leverage 7/8th/multiple inning guy? How does Tito tend to handle these things?
Brad Johnson
2:26
Sounds like they'll be used situationally
based on tito's comments
he tends to settle on a CL eventually

Willson Contreras and Johnny Cueto for Nomar Mazara and Carlos Beltran redraft league 2 catcher league have Yasmani as my only catcher... Thoughts?
Brad Johnson

I know, never drop a closer, but I can drop the ghost of Huston Street in 10-team, right?
Brad Johnson
2:27
yea
in a 10 team league, you should just about never own the bottom 5 or so closers
Street, Cingrani, Johnson, etc

Would you look to buy low on Salazar or is it too scary to be buying when he says his arm feels bad?
Brad Johnson
2:27
Oh, it's scary
2:28
hope it's just tendonitis, it's probably more serious

I give Altuve, I get Scherzer, Roark and Pujols. Yea or nay? I'm in first but is this too good to pass up? Thanks
Brad Johnson
2:28
Depends how in first you are and how much you need to defend your SP stats
I'd hold the Altuve side without knowing more

Hi Brad. I'm wondering about stashing Dilson Herrera in a deep keeper league. Aledmys Diaz has been fine as a MI and I have Correa at SS. Kinsler at 2B. He should find playing time next year, right?
Brad Johnson
2:29
Look for something shinier than Herrera like Zimmer
Herrera won't outperform Diaz

I'm currently running with a sizable closer crew of Robertson, Allen, Oh, Harris, Herrera and a freshly acquired Watson. Do I drop any of those guys for Diaz? Harris and Allen seem like big question marks right now, but seems too early to jump ship on either.
Brad Johnson
2:29
Every one of them is droppable for Diaz, but Harris the guy to dump

Never won anything in my AL only league for 8 yrs until I traded for Trout just before 2012 season. Now I have 4 championships in a row. Makes me wonder if there is any cross fantasy league stat kept for frequency of championship titles with player X on the roster. Are you aware of anything like this?
Brad Johnson
2:31
We can do something like this on ottoneu
At the one-third point something like 20% of winning rosters owned Kershaw

Sean Manaea is the Raisel Iglesias of 2016 ?
Brad Johnson
2:31

Robbie ray has had an incredibly consistent increase in K% since his debut in 2014. His walks are coming down too.
Brad Johnson
2:32
I keep waiting for everything to click
maybe next year, encouraging growth this year
might be the poor man's Michael Wacha

Team has holes on offense - Give up Beltran for Werth/Bregman/Solarte?
Brad Johnson
2:32
Yea, I'd go Solarte for the flex
then find more reinforcements elsewhere

Dynasty trade, Dee Gordon and Giolito for Robbie Cano... Too much?
Brad Johnson
2:33
