If it's not too deep, maybe Paul DeJong?
Freddy Galvis?
You're not really going to improve upon them with the waiver wire

A guy in a keeper traded away Kyle Seager for Brian Goodwin and a guy who got sent down who he then cut.  Bad trade, obviously.  League is being dramatic and locking his team, kicking him out.  Oh yeah, he's my dad.  Justified for me to leave?  Weird stuff?
Brad Johnson

If you don't love the league, then take a hike
4:55
I assume this is the latest in a long series of bad trades

Did I overvalue Harper's longterm value in my 12-tm roto keeper league by rejecting Lindor/Jose Ramirez for Harper (even after Harper's injury)? Players can be kept at no cost or round association forever. I'm currently in first place with padding in the offensive stats.
Brad Johnson
4:55
No, I'd turn that down too
That deal's an entire Jose Ramirez short
Or at least a Kyle Seager
Gary

Who are you drafting next year for a play-all-positions guy next year? Marwin Gonzalez, Edwardo Nunez, or Chris Taylor?
Brad Johnson
4:56
Whichever comes with the least opportunity cost
Though I like Marwin least

I'm in first place and feel like I'm too reliant on unproven hitting. I have Moncada, Hoskins, Pham, and Benintendi in a 5 OF league that also uses MI and CI. We only keep 9, so not dynasty, should I move on from Moncada to get the likes of Arcia, Galvis, or Villar? Should I move on from Pham who's slowed down? I just cut Thames and Alonso recently as well, seems like all my hitting is cooling off at the same time!
Brad Johnson
4:57
If the options are Arcia, Galvis, and Villar, I'd only move on if I was targeting specific production
Nothing wrong with piecing things together
Matt
4:57
Thoughts on Lamet as a minimum salary keeper?
Brad Johnson
4:57
Absent other opportunity costs, you can do it
I wouldn't
But I'm very confident he's only a reliever
4:58
Most people should be less confident and therefore willing to roll the dice
John D
4:58
When is it time to give up on Moncada in a re-draft, points league?
Brad Johnson
4:58
I mean, he was always just an interesting streamer
It's not really giving up
Phil E.
4:58
In an AVG/OPS league that also counts BB, how valuable do you see Rhys being as a sneaky keeper? Can't predict next six weeks of course, but is the fact that he's a slow 1B depressed the hype train?
Brad Johnson
4:58
I think the fact he's a Phillie is the main culprit
They haven't produced a meaningful prospect in a long time
4:59
For fantasy purposes that is
Odubel doesn't count, he was a Rule 5 pick
Ottoneu

Just got offered Manuel Margot ($4) and Taillon ($13) for Brad Hand ($4) and Carlos Carrasco ($15) in a dynasty league. Think Margot makes it worth it? I never trust keeping closers...
Brad Johnson
4:59
That may work out. Some of people I know really think there's a lot more in the tank for Margot
And Carrasco isn't exactly durable
5:00
Depends how long you can keep Margot under $10 I think

Keep two of these SPs in keep forever roto league: Nola, Goldey, Jimmy Nelson...or do you like them all enough to keep over Smoak?
Brad Johnson
5:00
Nola/Godley for me
Smoak's a weird one, we're going to have to talk about him in the offseason
Luck Dragons
5:01
Safe to cut Syndergaard in a league that ends on 9/17?
Brad Johnson
5:01
Yes, what are you likely to miss? A couple starts at most
They've have to be damned good to be worth more than the roster spot
Bob Villar
5:01
No one cares about how you did in your public leagues last year
