Is Xander droppable in a 16-team league? Dude's been terrible since his hand injury and providing no power.
Brad Johnson
4:28
I had to check to make sure you weren't talking about some other Xander
No, you can not cut Xander Bogaerts in a 16 team league
Or a 10 team league
K-Pax

Like what you see from Hoskins so far?
Brad Johnson
4:28
Well I like what I saw yesterday
I also like that it coincided with me recommending him in multiple columns :)
Kevin

Is Amed Rosario worth keeping over Boegarts?
Brad Johnson
4:29
Lots of Bogaerts doubt today
4:30
It's possible Rosario is keepable over him depending on the format and rules. Would need to be pretty special circumstances. Or a Rnd 2 cost versus a Rnd 25 cost.
Rosario looks overmatched to me. I don't think we're going to get any instant gratification from him
Eric did call him arguably the best prospect in baseball
He certainly knows more about prospects than me
Slamboni

Do you really think that Buck Showalter will bench Beckham for hardy when Hardy comes off the DL? I know Buck likes his vets, but Beckham is crushing...
Brad Johnson
4:30
Absolutely not
Card's Devil Magic

Fowler or Pham ROS?

Fowler

I dropped Thames for Hoskins a couple days ago, why did I make the right/wrong move?
Brad Johnson
4:31
I think that's close to a push
Similar risk/reward profiles, albeit for very different reasons
Rob

Hey Brad, Carlos Santana or Carlos Gonzalez ROS?
Brad Johnson
4:32
Gonzalez has to be close to losing playing time
The Rockies actually need him to produce and have alternatives
The Indians need Santana too, but they have fewer alternatives
So.. Santana
Pablo
4:32
Think Raisel is set as closer or will the Reds think about moving him back to the rotation for next year?
Brad Johnson
4:33
No, they don't think he has the durability
Porcho Villa
4:33
Trade deadline coming up and need to trade for a bat to replace Harper (OBP format). Who would you target: Gallo, Dozier, Moustakas, or Schoop?
Brad Johnson
4:33
All else equal, Dozier
Although, I'd take whoever costs the least points elsewhere
Ruyi
4:33
Giancarlo first round pick next year?
Brad Johnson
4:33
Yessir
4:34
Should have been this year. One of those all-too-obvious bargains
Always a few of those in the early rounds
Stupidly good players coming off bad seasons
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe
4:34
It's early. A lot can happen. Pick three keepers: Posey, Freeman, Rizzo, J. Ramirez, C. Seager, Rendon, Judge, Pollock, Conforto, Sano.
Brad Johnson
4:34
Whoa...that's quite the list
Judge, Rizzo, Seager?
4:35
Further analysis might push me in another direction, but I'm not going to do that :)
