Polanco or Bradley Jr. in a points league? Similar K% and BB% but Polanco’s exit velo and avg launch angle seem to suggest more power ROS. JBJ has the production though. Which do you like? Thanks!
Brad Johnson
1:45
Polanco seems to have a couple nagging injuries. I'd go with the healthier player for now

Higher dynasty value, Schwarber or Kepler? Thanks!!
Brad Johnson
1:46
Perceived value - Schwarber. I probably prefer to own Kepler right now. Could change

Hey Brad, thanks for chatting! So what are your thoughts on selling Villar in redraft leagues? He’s atop Pod’s xBABIP over-performers list so I figure some regression is coming, plus I’m personally in a good spot with SBs and have a few other speedy guys in Segura and Myers. Time to move him? Secondly, roughly what tier of power bat can I realistically expect in return? Is someone like Pujols an even swap?
Brad Johnson
1:47
I'd aim higher than Pujols. Whoever you give Villar too probably gains a lot of points in the SB department. You'll need to be careful you don't accidentally hurt yourself by giving away more points than you receive
at this stage of the season, forget player values
trades should be negotiated entirely on potential points gains/losses
1:48
Villar should probably return a very high end power only guy for that reason

Need one or more AL only holds guys as a couple of mine have graduated to closers. Is JC Ramirez a good one? Any other obscure names? Related... Michael Feliz sits on my bench. What kind of competition does he have for getting holds for the Astros?
Brad Johnson
1:48
Astros have a very deep pen. I haven't looked into Ramirez recently, but he's been terrible for the better part of 6 or 8 years
1:49
was part of the Cliff Lee to Seattle trade
I hear ya on losing AL holds guys. I'm waiting for a few more to surface. Tyler Clippard is one option

In a 10-team keep forever league where I am a strong competitor this season Bregman was dropped (4 man bench). Have Correa, Tulo, Lamb Hosmer at SS/MI/3B/CI respectively. Would you drop any of Sano, Pence, Dahl, Profar, Rendon, Herrera for Bregman or are those all too strong of assets and I am better off letting someone else grab him?
Brad Johnson
1:50
Could consider Profar. Bregman might offer more fantasy production despite similar overall talent

Thoughts on Yulieski Gourriel ROS?
Brad Johnson
1:50
Gotta see him play more than a couple low MiLB games
1:51
you hope for Jose Abreu, you probably get closer to Byung-ho Park

Thoughts on Joe Musgrove ROS and future? Thinking about trading 5 years of him for non keep Scherzer. In playoff race
Brad Johnson
1:52
Love Musgrove. I just traded non-keeper Scherzer and Britton for $8 Villar and $7 Musgrove
I think it's a reasonable swap, the ceiling isn't a mega ace. You do need to be realistic about what this does for your chances
does Scherzer give you 20% of a championship or 1.5% (hint, it's usually the latter)
1:53
might not be worth losing 5 years of Musgrove if that's the case. Calculated gamble either way.
Oliver
1:53
Is Cutch broken? Buy low or stay away?
Brad Johnson
1:53
You can buy low
1:54
he does just enough to be rosterable and has a good lineup role. Don't pay for even a hint of upside on his current line
So we're talking Danny Valencia or James Paxton as the level of player you'd be dealing

Hey brad, tebow worth a stash in a 12 team dynasty to you?
Brad Johnson

Lel
1:55
and just in case you're serious, nobody has grabbed him in my super deep 20 teamer. Can't imagine he can be more than a reliever.
Oliver
1:55
More saves ROS Watson or Betances?
Brad Johnson
1:55
Coin flip. Both hold the job RoS.
Napoli's popped top
1:55
With Hanley's wrist issues, is it OK to move on from him for someone like Gurriel in a 10 teamer?
Brad Johnson
1:56
I wonder if there's a better option out there. But yea, you can gamble on another option
Alex
1:56
Which side do you like? Machado or WilMyers+Gallo+LeonysMartin?
Brad Johnson
1:56
Gimme Myers+
I like stolen bases, Machado went from hero to zero very fast in that category
Garblargh

Stanton at 1st round status for a keeper league. What's a good target to get for him? I need pitching.
Brad Johnson
1:57
A like pitcher, i.e. Scherzer.
You're going to have a hard time profiting on Stanton via a SP
