Yep. No concerns from me. I suppose he could be hurt...

Chris Davis - droppable in 12 teamers for a hot FA pickup like Aaron Ather or should I wait it out (H2h - coasting to playoffs)
Brad Johnson
2:51
Wait it out
Absolutely not droppable
you paid knowing this is par for the course

Traded away Miguel Sano keepable at 40$ after next season. Got back $2 Brinson, $1 De Leon and $16 Braun. 450$ dynasty league. How did I do
Brad Johnson
2:52
Kinda meh. I approve of selling at that keeper price, but I'm not a huge Brinson fan yet. He's a lotto ticket
De Leon could be a nice get and Braun is fine for the short term
I suspect a better offer might have materialized eventually

Leake or Bauer tonight? It ain't pretty on my waiver wire.
Brad Johnson

Leake
and yuck

What are your thoughts on fantasy owners that are in the playoff hunt trading with guys that are clearly out of it? Bush League?
Brad Johnson
2:53
As long as the deals are fair, it's fine by me
nothing worse than a league in which half the rosterable players are basically sitting unused
DyNASTY

How would you recommend salary cap increases in a dynasty league if player salaries increase by 5$ at the end of the contract?

Our cap is 450$ and FAs are effectively 0.5$ to pickup and drop & 1$ to keep.
Brad Johnson
2:54
not sure you need to increase the cap, unless I'm not understanding the format
2:55
just forces more good players to the draft

General strategy question: I'm in first in my league with a decent, but not insurmountable, lead. The guys right behind me in most categories are also in the 2nd-4th spots in the standings. How do you feel about intentionally making some (slightly) lopsided trades with the guys in the 5th-7th range? They're not a direct threat to me, but the extra value would presumably help them pick up ground on the others and thus help secure my lead.
Brad Johnson
2:55
I'm a big advocate of managing the scoreboard
It's risky if your team gets slumpy though
2:56
I usually say I want to give them bonus value then work out a fair trade instead

Re: The Dahl trade- How about shooting for Maeda instead of Stroman? His pitching is not great. Scherzer, Gray, Gio, King Felix, and Taillon are the other options.
Brad Johnson
2:57
Maybe start by asking what a Schezer-Altuve scenario looks like
Joey

RoS: Stroman or Wainwright? H2H league.
Brad Johnson
2:57
The Jays have a 6 man rotation, but i expect better numbers from Stroman
up to you
Toki

Peter O'Brien Vs Jallo who has more power?
Brad Johnson
2:57
Gallo by miles

Kyle
2:58
Gallo stat line with 600 at bats in 2017?
Brad Johnson
