I have Michael Taylor in a 12 tm H2H...worth dropping for any of the following? --> Choo, Suarez, E. Rosario (don't need a particular position)
Brad Johnson
4:35
I like Choo and Suarez more
Porcho Villa
4:35
Thoughts on Bauer? Was all ready to drop him for a streamer last week when I noticed that he's rolling with a top 10 K/9 (and with fewer walks, too).
Brad Johnson

Hang onto him for now
Don't be surprised when he squats all over your ratios one day
Seth

Easier to chase wins or saves at this point in the season?
Brad Johnson
4:36
Saves are always easier to chase
Wins are just so random
Zed

Chances Rosario matches Bogaerts's production next year?
Brad Johnson
4:36
30%? I have no means of accurately predicting that
Hannah Hochevar

Would you start either of Hellboy v. Angels or Pruitt v. Seattle in an AL Only? Thanks!
Brad Johnson
4:37
I think they're both playable in AL Only if you need the innings. What's the top ERA in that format? Like 3.90?
Zed
4:37
Thinking of trading for Greinke in a keeper league with an eye to next year. Expect a serious dropoff from this year?
Brad Johnson
4:37
No, probably more of the same
Not 2016 but also not 2015
Zac

Would you trade Robles, Vlad Jr, and Juan Soto for Goldschmidt and Brendan Rodgers in a dynasty league?  I'm in second and just lost Harper.  Really need hitting.
Brad Johnson
4:37
It's a steep but fair price
4:38
You may kick yourself in five years, but you should enjoy the interim

What's your take on strategy in a 14 cat league, where pitching stats are QS/IP/K/ERA/WHIP/S? Seems like half my league streams and the other doesn't. Kinda weird set up, and not sure if I straddle the 2 or go for one side
Brad Johnson
4:38
Kind of depends on league depth and what you land in the draft
4:39
Certainly devalues pitching since you almost have to punt 2 or 3 categories
I'd try to do the zigging while others zag
That may mean drafting Kershaw, Scherzer, and Sale then also streaming
plenty of different ways to skin the cat
Not a Phillies Fan

Has Aaron Nola graduated to ace status if he stays healthy?
Brad Johnson
4:40
Like Cole Hamels grade ace
Porcho Villa
4:40
You buying Pat Corbin? Results up and down but consistently solid peripherals (top 20 SwK and FpK)
Brad Johnson
4:40
Not really. Too consistently mediocre

In a keeper league w/ dump trades, a manager in the hunt wants to acquire a keeper stud for the stretch run from a team that's dumping (for a decent keeper) with the promise that he'll deal the stud back to said team during the off-season at a steep discount. Smells fishy but not necessary illegal. Your take?
Brad Johnson
4:40
This is collusion
4:41
Collusion is the c-word of fantasy sports
Usually, either the offenders are kicked out or the league dies
It would be fine if the guy says something like "I'm totally open to trading him back to you at the end of the season"
He can even list the players he'd like
4:42
but the "discount" component is a red flag
Every owner should have the same opportunity to acquire the player
Skipping from 4:25 to the present

Your take on Luis Castillo in a dynasty league
Brad Johnson
4:43
Very interesting, shouldn't be viewed as a can't miss stud
but he might get there
