Did i not have enough wherewithal this last start or am i not as good as you think i am (top 10-15 pitcher)?
Brad Johnson
4:19
He's hurt
Matt W
4:19
Do you believe in Whit Merrifield?
Brad Johnson
4:19
Ish
Not sure he's really a .300 hitter, but he does seem to be a 15/15 guy with a good lineup role
and that coveted 20/20 upside
Joe

I'm falling out of the race in my 12 team points H2H, and I was offered Gallo and Danny Duffy for JD Martinez. Duffy isn't a keeper consideration, but I could keep Gallo for $6 next year, whereas I could keep JD for $22. Make the deal?
Brad Johnson
4:20
That's tough. Gallo is a massive volatility investment
could return anywhere between -$15 and $35
JDM is far more reliable, but he's also aging. Nor do we know where he'll play next year

I traded for Domingo Santana right after his slump started (too new to see at the time). SHould I be holding? I just lost Harper, and need a boost.
Brad Johnson
4:21
I think you gotta hold. Lot of talent there
RK
4:21
Any thoughts on Mitch Garver?
Brad Johnson
4:21
Not really
4:22
He's a bit old to be a prospect, although catchers are often late bloomers
I have no info on his defense which is the most important trait to consider
Rasta
4:22
Chapman given the dreaded vote of confidence. Is my straight jacket theory of him getting demoted from last week holding more water for you? If you had to pick between Betances and Robertson, who ya got?
Brad Johnson
4:23
Still leaning Betances way if anything happens
Porcho Villa
4:23
Would you stick with Grandal for the stretch run? Or would you drop him for J. McCann or Avila? (12-team OBP)
Brad Johnson
4:23
I'm sticking
Nick
4:23
Is it worth getting excited about a Glasnow September call-up after his recent stint in AAA or are you still concerned about control issues coming back to haunt him? Looks like pitching exclusively from the stretch has helped him to limit walks
Brad Johnson
4:23
Excited might be a strong word, but I'll stash him anytime I have the opportunity
4:24
There's a reason the scouting community loves him
Al
4:24
Acuna or Guerrero - who's the better fantasy player long term?
Brad Johnson
4:24
Acuna by virtue of thriving in Triple-A. Vlad still has a lot to prove
U were good on the vikings
4:24
Samardzija or Keuchel for 2018
Brad Johnson
4:24
Keuchel for ceiling, Shark for floor
Steve
4:25
Who do you prefer in a dynasty - Jimmy Nelson or Rodon?
Brad Johnson
4:25
Nelson. Rodon still gives me indigestion
He's like Michael Pineda - too good to be a reliever, but also much better suited as a reliever
Nick
4:26
5x5 12 team keeper league -- Is Bogaerts clear cut better keeper over J. Lamb and Miggy?
Brad Johnson
4:26
Over Miggy, yes
Not over Lamb. That's a decision for a latter day
JimmyBallgame
4:26
How is Bradley Zimmer owned in less than 30 percent of fantasy leagues?
Brad Johnson
4:26
I don't know, I recommend rostering him every single day
Rasta
4:26
Lamet, Odorizzi, Bauer...in on any of them in a 12 teamer or just a streamer based on matchups?
Brad Johnson
4:27
Bauer looks like he's figured things out again
He'll probably un-figure them out eventually
but you can ride the wave until it happens
Porcho Villa
4:27
Better late-season save stash: Familia or Barraclough?
