All of the best players are 20/20 threats
except maybe Bryant, Arenado, and Machado
I'd put Seager right up there with Story for first non-Machado SS off the board
Bryzzo
2:41
I need another bat with good power and OBP. Guys I can trade for - Napoli, Braun, D Fowler, Yelich, Hanley, and Victor Martinez. Regardless of cost to acquire them, who is going to be the best the ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:41
Braun, Fowler, and Napoli are my preferred from that list
Fred
2:41
Assuming no setbacks, is Pollock going to be worth deploying when he comes back?
Brad Johnson
2:41
I think so. He was good the last time he came back from this
Seanto

traded $15 Cano for Rosell Herrera, Jose De Leon, and a couple of lower level guys in 25 tm dynasty with no roster limit but cap of $189. How'd I do?
Brad Johnson
2:42
I probably prefer Cano, but it does depend on your roster composition

Just dropping in to say that Ottavino has the ninth in Colorado so that's the place to grab free saves off the wire today!
Brad Johnson
2:43
As I mentioned, I heard some rumbles. Still have to brave the altitude
Baller McCheese
2:43
Benentendi or Bradley Jr. - for just 2017? Beyond?
Brad Johnson
2:43
I'll say Bradley for next year, Benintendi long term
Neel

in a 16 team dynasty league, needing to acquire some SP for the stretch run and the playoffs. are there any 3/4/5 type starters that you think might be undervalued/easier to acquire than they should be? Thanks
Brad Johnson
2:44
Bartolo, Stroman, and Hellickson come immediately to mind
2:45
Ray, Tyler Anderson, Tyler Chatwood if you don't mind Rockies
Liriano might turn out alright in Toronto back with Martin
Andriese if he's ever stretched out enough for 5 IP

AJ RAmos headed to 15 day DL, in a holds and saves league, thoughts on Mauricio Cabrera as a replacement? Not a lot of great options on the wire at the moment?
Brad Johnson
2:46
Not a bad idea
Gotta love the Chapman velocity even if the overall profile is rough
JD15
2:46
How much more do you like Kyle Hendricks over Tanner Roark in a 5 year keeper league?
Brad Johnson
2:46
15-20%?
El Cafe
2:47
Dynasty league: My Ortiz and Benintendi for Harper?
Brad Johnson
2:47
Yea that works for me
Alex
2:47
Naquin or Beni ROS?
Brad Johnson
2:48
I'll say Benintendi on the promise of more playing time
Aaron Judge
2:48
When will I be called up and am I Joey Gallo 2.0?
Brad Johnson
2:48
September and not exactly
Should be a lot more contact but the power profile is much smaller
granted, Judge is a well above average power bat. Gallo is a once every 10 years power guy
2:49
and a lot more contact still means an unacceptable K rate
without a breakout, I don't see how Judge can play in the majors
Cameron
2:49
When will Swanson be called up?
Brad Johnson
2:49
Guessing late April 2017 now
thought it would be this summer, but he's stalled out a little
Joey
2:50
I have Schoop in a 10-team dynasty league and don't know how to value him. He's behind Devon Travis and Dustin Pedroia. Any advice? I almost think he's droppable but he's so young and seems to be improving...
Brad Johnson
2:50
He's a tough one to value. Almost depends on your leaguemates. I have some leagues where he's disliked and some where he's in high demand
Ok time to wrap things up

You think Carrasco will shift back to being studly for the Indians down the stretch? He's had rough few outings.
