though it's not like Bregman doesn't have interesting teammates
Kamala

Thoughts on what you've seen from Benintendi thus far in the majors?
Brad Johnson
2:19
Lots of liners, good balance at the plate, instinct for finding the barrel
in short, I'm in love
2:20
there are still some warts though, let's give him some time to grow
Jimy
2:20
Can we talk about Jorge Polanco some more? Is he worth grabbing in AL-onlies?
Brad Johnson
2:20
Go immediately
Shocked he isn't already owned
Santa

Who is the next reliever that could be closer soon for those of us with an extra spot on our benches?
Brad Johnson
2:21
Hector Neris or Edubray Ramos?
Actually, Fernando Rodney if he's still on your wire
sad boy
2:21
need to get saves after trades took them awya from Cody Allen and Jeremy Jeffress. any under-the-radar or prospective closers you can suggest?
Brad Johnson
2:22
see above. Jeffress and Kela are also options. Boxberger if Colome falters. I saw rumbles out of COL too if you want to brave Coors
Phil
2:22
Bryce Harper... I mean WTH is going on?
Brad Johnson
2:22
Sullivan had a nice article about him awhile back. Or maybe it was August.
2:23
In any case, teams found a hole, Harper hasn't adjusted
John Bradson

What do you think of Alex's take on Hernan Perez today? Is he a breakout candidate for 2017 or will he not get enough PA to be fantasy relevant?
Brad Johnson
2:23
(I haven't read it yet)
My own opinion of Perez is that he's a 90-95 wRC+ hitter with enough power and speed to be interesting anyway
2:24
as you hinted, playing time is a huge issue
plenty of room in the OF for now, but that's temporary
ichirosan
2:24
Pricer or Archer ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:24
push
Guest

Question on a couple of former fantasy studs: do Gio Gonzalez and/or David Freese provide much value ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:24
Minimal
more likely from Gio
2:25
more likely should not be construed as likely though.
if that makes sense

Need pitching help in my 12 team roto for the stretch run. Looking to unload some offense, does getting Scherzer back for E5 sound about right or am I setting my sights too high?
Brad Johnson
2:25
Might be a hair too high
worth trying it
Santa
2:25
Who's the best keeper next year if we only keep two? Correa in the 10th, Rizzo in the 1st, or Mookie in the 1st?
Brad Johnson
2:25
Moookie
marv
2:25
Have an empty NA spot, does anyone come to mind that will be up in Sept have a chance to make an impact yet this year?
Brad Johnson

Zimmer
Macho

In a 10 player keep forever league, is Benintendi going to be worth keeping (12 teams)
Brad Johnson
2:26
yes
you might earn a loss in 2017, but long term, you'll be grateful
Jordan
2:26
A guy in my 10 team 5x5 H2H league really wants David Dahl. His most recent offer is Altuve, Fowler, and Stroman for my Cano, Dahl, and Kemp. Jump on that?
Brad Johnson
2:26
No.
