Brad Johnson Baseball Chat: 6/19/2018

We chatted. Here is the transcript which ends with some ROY picks. Enjoy.

4:01
Vegan Man!: What are you doing with Jon Gray and Castillo in 12 team leagues? Benching or dropping? Thanks!

4:01
Brad Johnson: Playing matchups. Definitely not dropping. Gray is actually top 10 SP by FIP WAR

4:01
Brad Johnson: Oh, hello everyone

4:02
Brad Johnson: Greetings and such

4:02
Brad Johnson: Onward

4:02
Julian H.: Been offered Verlander for Ohtani in a keep forever h2h pts league. I’ve got a top contending team. I love Ohtani and am anguishing over this. Talk to me.

4:03
Brad Johnson: Wow that’s a tough position. They say flags fly forever, so I guess it comes down to the points. How much does Verlander help you contend compared with a reasonable estimate for future Ohtani

4:03
Brad Johnson: My guess is you can ask more

4:03
Jimmy Sak: When looking for ROS values for trades, add/drops, whatever . . . what projection system should I be using?  I can’t figure them out.  Steamer RoS?  Steamer Update?  Zips Update?  How do they work?  I’m looking for a definitive system to use, but how can I trust a system (Steamer RoS) that has Vlad Guerrero ranked over Bregman when Vlad hasn’t even had a major league AB yet?  Please set me straight.

4:04
Brad Johnson: Honestly, I think you want to ask this of Jeff Zimmerman. I’m not this closely married to projections

4:04
Brad Johnson: I only look at them out of curiosity after I do my own analysis.

4:04
Andy: Ryon Healy or Candelario ROS?  OPS League

4:05
Brad Johnson: Healy by a hair? Same asset class. The OPS really helps Healy

4:05
Brad Johnson: Be prepared for streakiness

4:05
Brad: I recently traded Hoskins, Murphy, and Austin Riley for Bryant and Kemp in a keep forever 10 MLB guys per year. It’s a 12 tm h2h with OPS and TB. How did I do?

4:05
Brad Johnson: I like this for you

4:05
Brad Johnson: And no, that’s not me complementing my own trade

4:06
Brad Johnson: Bryant is clearly the top player in the deal. It’s always good to aggregate in these shallow keep X formats

4:06
Slamboni: 14 team points: You get 5 pts for saves and 3 for holds. Should I trade Brandon Morrow for Max Muncy? 2B needs a lil help

4:06
Brad Johnson: Your Muncy can 2b?

4:07
Brad Johnson: Smells fair to me. There’s sufficient risk/reward on both sides for either owner to come out on top.

4:07
Vader: Will anybody be calculating Arsenal Scores since Eno left??

4:08
Brad Johnson: I can pose the question to our slack. I believe that was a joint project with Jeff Z

4:08
Bags: Who do you like ROS H2H AVG/OBP/SLG cat league between Braun and Aaron Hicks?

Both might be short on playing time, but both bring intriguing pop and speed combos. I generally fall to the youth in these situations, but feel power upside of Braun is higher here.

4:08
Brad Johnson: I think I’d do Braun too

4:08
Brad Johnson: Seems like they’ll stop playing him at 1B at least

4:09
Tex: need to make some moves on the margins… dump cron for john hicks?

4:09
Brad Johnson: Can play matchups if you want, but if I’m holding one of them, it’s Cron

4:09
Crazy Joe M: Sitting 5 back of 1st in 12tm roto dynasty. Team seemed over its head all season. Would you still make a push or start trying to get better guys for the future? Have guys like Morton, Maeda, Albies, etc. that have to started to fade.

4:10
Brad Johnson: In this position, I usually “retool.” By which I announce a rebuild then do what I can to trade old players for young stars without sacrificing too much present value

4:11
Brad Johnson: I did this successfully in my 20 team industry dynasty last year

4:11
Brad Johnson: Turned Donaldson, Miggy, Odubel, and a bunch of Archer/Quintana/closers type pitchers into Betts and Rizzo. Went from 9th to 3rd (top 5 paid).

4:12
Brad Johnson: People tend to be a little more open handed if they think you’re throwing in the towel

4:12
Bart: Was offered Hoskins and Yelich for Harper in a 12 team h2h keeper league.  Would you make the trade?

4:12
Brad Johnson: No

4:12
Brad Johnson: If it’s a keeper, best player is a huge deal

4:12
Brad Johnson: Harper is easily the best in that offer

4:12
Dream Weaver: Luke Weaver has been super *meh* this season.  Any reason to remain optimistic, or is this who he is now?

4:13
Brad Johnson: Every pitcher can break out

4:13
Brad Johnson: Weaver has the raw tools to be given every chance imaginable

4:13
Brad Johnson: If I had to draft a list of presently bad pitchers who may one day be good, Weaver would be near the top of it

4:14
Brad Johnson: Taillon was pretty similar to Weaver until a few starts ago when he started whipping lethal sliders

4:14
Brad Johnson: As an outsider, the best I can suggest is to treat pitchers like Weaver as an asset class. Try to find the ones that find a new trick before they’re widely adopted

4:15
McFly: Archie Bradley picked up the save last night. % chance he ends up as the closer?

4:15
Brad Johnson: Low

4:15
Brad Johnson: This is a management group that had the patience to stick with Fernando Rodney for a whole season

4:15
Brad Johnson: I think they’ll give Box more chances. And barring that, I bet Hirano jumps in line first.

4:16
Clemson: How are you playing matchups with J. Gray? He’s been lit up for his last 7 starts against good teams and not-so-good teams, at home and away.

4:16
Brad Johnson: Yea, if I had any shares, I would be eating bad ratios.

4:16
Brad Johnson: Good pitchers can give you bad ratios sometimes. It sucks

4:16
Brad Johnson: All you can do is stick with the process of using good pitchers with good matchups

4:17
Jeffe: The smart move would be to make Bradley the every day closer though, right?

4:17
Brad Johnson: Eh, I don’t think it’s necessary

4:17
Crazy Joe M: With that said about “retooling” would you offer Morton and Cain for Conforto and Forrest Whitley? Need more? 12tm roto dynasty.

4:18
Brad Johnson: That is the sort of trade I’d look for – perhaps with a better second piece than Whitley as a starting point. Might still settle for what you proposed, but it’s wise to work in some wiggle room with the initial offer

4:18
Moelicious: Is Godley worth holding in a 12 team? Too many baserunners for me….

4:18
Brad Johnson: Godley should be owned, but not necessarily by you

4:19
Brad Johnson: If a better player is on the waiver wire, feel free to make that trade

4:19
Brad Johnson: Godley probably belongs on a bottom feeder team looking to strike gold

4:19
marichal: Franchy Cordero worth waiting for in an NL-only, or is the Padres outfield too jammed up?

4:19
Brad Johnson: Way too clogged

4:19
Vegan Man!: Would you drop R. Zimmerman in a 14 team dynasty points league for Ottavino? Thanks!

4:20
Brad Johnson: Depends on the points, but I think I might

4:20
Brad Johnson: How is Ottavino unowned?

4:20
Stevie: Simmons vs Torres ROS – how large of a difference is there in a points league?

4:20
Brad Johnson: Again, it really depends on your specific scoring system.

4:21
Brad Johnson: For the record, there are about 5 versions of “standard” when it comes to points. I play the least standard of those (FGpts). It’s the only one I can speak authoritatively on. The rest I can just offer a gut impression – your gut is likely better than mine

4:22
Marvin: I was offered Trout ($75) for arenado ($60) and Yelich ($36). keep 8, on base percentage rather than average. those dollar values represent keeper price. yay or nay? Im currently second in the league and look to be headed to playoffs

4:22
Brad Johnson: So in a $260 budget league, none of these are keepers

4:22
Brad Johnson: Unless there’s a big group of studs kept for $1 driving inflation

4:23
Brad Johnson: So we’re basically asking if I’d do Arenado/Yelich for Trout. Answer is yes, unless your backup 3B is a joke

4:23
Dexy’s Midnight Fowlers: Need to drop two players to activate Belt and Andrus. Who would you pick: Smoak, T. Anderson, M. Gonzales, Rodon, L. Castillo, Pivetta, Seranthony, Boxberger

4:23
Brad Johnson: Anderson and Gonzales

4:23
Brad Johnson: Although roster composition obviously matters

4:23
seth: Franchy or Bader ROS?

4:23
Brad Johnson: Woof

4:24
Brad Johnson: Can I opt out for Dietrich?

4:24
Brad Johnson: Or any number of other temporary patches

4:24
Brad Johnson: Bader for now, then move on once Dex starts playing again

4:25
Ohtamendi: Would you add Kyle Gibson over Luis Castillo in 10 team league or shoot for upside?

4:25
Brad Johnson: upside?

4:25
Brad Johnson: Oh, misunderstood the question, thought you were saying Gibson was a shot for upside 🙂

4:25
Brad Johnson: Probably, yes

4:25
The New York Press: Are you buying Conforto’s recent adjustments/gains (as reported by me)?

4:26
Brad Johnson: I’m mostly buying he rushed back and has consistently gained strength. He’s been fine for like 45 days now

4:26
Brad Johnson: At some point, he’ll actually turn hot, but fine is acceptable for now

4:26
JD Martin: For the guy asking about which projection to use for RoS player evaluations, use Depth Charts so you’re not married to either Steamer or ZiPS and you get the bonus of human determined playing time allocations (which have more information about team and depth situations)

4:26
Jay: Domingo German intrigues me, lot of K upside and the xFIP gives me reason for optimism.  Thoughts?

4:27
Brad Johnson: He’s seemingly homer prone and that park…

4:27
Brad Johnson: The homer issues kinda add up with his stuff too

4:27
Mike: Is Rich Hill startable tonight?

4:27
Brad Johnson: No

4:28
Brad Johnson: Was so bad before the injury. I assume the wind is blowing out. Game over

4:28
Brad Johnson: If the wind is blowing in, can use if you’re desperate.

4:28
Minter is Coming: Who would you cut between Greg Bird and Kyle Seager? Seager obviously more polished but bird has higher upside

4:28
Brad Johnson: If I’m in a position to cut one of those two players, my team is really damned good

4:29
Brad Johnson: So I’d dump Bird and lament later when he finally figures out how to hit

4:29
Brad: I should be asking for the world if someone wants my $1 Soto or $2 Acuna in FGPoints Ottoneu right?

4:29
Brad Johnson: Oh yes.

4:29
Brad Johnson: Had an owner suggest Rizzo for $4 Soto+ “a small piece” earlier.

4:30
Brad Johnson: I gave him a lol in response

4:30
Brad Johnson: $48 Rizzo and my roster has Goldy/Smoak/Dozier/Cesar/Gennett/Andrus/Torres clogging 1B/UTIL/2B/MI

4:31
Brad Johnson: Rizzo is obviously an upgrade over some of those guys, but it’s a small upgrade.

4:31
Brad Johnson: I’ll brb folks, the dog says he wants some attention.

4:31
Marvin: Backup 3B is Devers (cheap to keep) or Muncy. Thank you again

4:32
Brad Johnson: Seems doable then. Muncy is in monster mode. Devers will figure it out eventually.

4:34
Brad Johnson: ok, dog is sorted

4:35
Brad Johnson: he prefers to be observed while eating

4:35
Brad Johnson: weirdo

4:35
Justin: How does Domingo Santana go from a top 30 player to waiver fodder is less than a year? trade the poor guys already!

4:35
HappyFunBall: If I find myself questioning starting Gallo even against RHP, does that mean I’m wrong? Or that it’s time to move on?

4:37
Brad Johnson: I’m back?

4:37
Brad Johnson: Yes

4:37
Brad Johnson: Sorry folks, technical difficulties

4:38
Brad Johnson: So… as I was trying to say, Gallo is basic HR Billy Hamilton

4:38
Brad Johnson: He can be tough to manage outside of OPS formats

4:38
lance mannion: Start Gonzalez vs the Yanks

4:38
Brad Johnson: Not me

4:38
Brad Johnson: I’m hands off for almost any visitor at Yankee Stadium

4:39
Mike: better keepers: Trout for $25 (next year only) or Lindor $16 for two years and Severino $10 for two years? man I like Trout.

4:39
Brad Johnson: Those are both really great positions from which to build

4:39
Brad Johnson: I think you should recognize your strengths as a fantasy player and go from there

4:40
Brad Johnson: Basically, if you’re even slightly good at find breakout value on the waiver wire/in draft, I’d go Trout

4:40
Brad Johnson: The Severino option is good for someone who always struggles to manage pitching stats

4:40
Smokey: Any high upside SPs to target in a deal with Greinke straight up or with a truly small piece added in? (i.e. like an Alex Wood and Smoak for Greinke)

4:40
Brad Johnson: Taillon jumps to mind

4:41
Brad Johnson: Let me see if I can find a few more

4:42
Brad Johnson: Clevinger, Newcomb, Porcello, Gray, Morton, Stripling, Pivetta, Snell – I’m betting somebody will overpay for Greinke’s past

4:42
Brad Johnson: I don’t think you really need to reach for an underperformer

4:43
Miles from somewhere: I Flipped E5 for Whit as a way to jump up from 6 pts in steals (1st in HR and RBI). I appreciated your advice last week about losing the trade but winning the league.

4:43
Brad Johnson: Hope it works!

4:44
Brad Johnson: I remember the time I traded prime Michael Brantley for Dee Gordon in an expert league. Hated the valuation on the trade but ended up winning the league by like 2 or 3 SB.

4:45
Brad Johnson: Didn’t have more points to gain in Brantley’s categories. Granted, I think that was an early August trade. Mid-June gives you some time to make up or lose ground

4:45
Al: Should I drop Tyson Ross for Loaisiga in a 10 team H2H league where replacement level is pretty decent and I’m looking for upside? Worried that the bottom is going to fall out of Ross as soon as he’s traded to a better hitter’s park (90 mph fastball, 40% hard contact, only 9.8% swstr and 44% GB)

4:45
Brad Johnson: Perhaps take a quick peek around the league to see if there are similar players you could trade for first

4:45
Brad Johnson: Though maybe don’t announce you’re shopping Ross right before cutting him

4:46
Brad Johnson: That signals to owners that all they have to do is wait for your players to be free

4:46
Brad Johnson: I usually don’t advertise a guy as on the block unless I plan to keep him for awhile yet

4:46
Matt D: What SP is a realistic/good return in a trade for Nomar Mazara? 12 team H2H 5 cat

4:46
Brad Johnson: McCullers-class?

4:46
Brad Johnson: Mazara’s name value should bring back a little more than his stat line is worth

4:47
Homey: Is Pivetta a streamer-only?  His home-road splits are pretty bad.

4:47
Brad Johnson: No, he’s just inconsistent

4:47
Brad Johnson: I don’t buy it as a home/road thing. That’s all small sample

4:47
Brad Johnson: I mostly only believe in home/away splits for Coors pitchers and HR rates

4:48
Shaun: Looking to replace Grichuk and/or Kepler in my OF, best stash?  Buxton, Avisail, Souza?

4:48
Brad Johnson: Keep Kep as a platoon bat. If you need SB Buxton. If you need power, cast a wider net

4:48
Brad Johnson: If those players are available, that means there are even better temporary resources to stream

4:49
Dexy’s Midnight Fowlers: In my 5×5 H2H league, some managers have pretty much abandoned starting pitching and are using high K/9 relievers to punt QS but usually win K, ERA, WHIP. Think this is a legitimate strategy? (We have a minimum 25 IP per week)

4:49
Brad Johnson: If you’re the only team doing it, yes

4:50
Brad Johnson: If ANYBODY else is doing it, the tactic fails. Not only are you competing for elite relievers of which the supply is small for the reliable ones – you’re also splitting categories any time you face one another. And those categories are still vulnerable in vanilla matchups if just one of your guys has a melt down

4:50
fortuan t: Thoughts on Hou closer?  Tepera or Rondon ros; 10 team AL, w, era, svs, ratio

4:51
Brad Johnson: You really can’t find a roster spot for both? Or a trade?

4:51
Brad Johnson: Those are top 125 assets in AL Only right now. I think Rondon basically has the job, but Giles usually gets it back eventually

4:51
Brad Johnson: Tepera, I think, might get traded as a cheaper alternative to a guy like Hand

4:52
Brad Johnson: In both cases, they’ll get saves now, maybe later, and possibly lose their jobs

4:52
Brad Johnson: Rondon has better ratio projections

4:53
Crazy Joe M: Justin Wilson just gave up 2 runs in the 9th against mostly RHB. Morrow no where around. Any idea what’s going on with the Cubs pen?

4:53
Brad Johnson: Well they have a doubleheader so perhaps they’re trying to manage their resources carefully

4:53
Sax: Pivetta or Tanaka ROS?

4:53
Brad Johnson: I think my training is going to force me to pick Tanaka

4:53
Brad Johnson: As much as I think that’s a legit coin flip

4:54
Dexy’s Midnight Fowlers: Dee Gordon a good trade target for SBs? He hasn’t been running much lately and has been disappointing overall, but is probably due for a bounceback.

4:54
Brad Johnson: The best target

4:54
Brad Johnson: Aside from Trout/Betts

4:54
Smokey: Thank you for those ideas. I already own Clevinger, Morton, and Pivetta plus Strasburg, Nola, Rich Hill, and Shane Bieber (dice roll).

With that kind of staff, should I be even looking for a SP or should I focus on a mid-tier bat? Need 2B or SS help (have Escobar at either position) and possibly OF help.

4:55
Brad Johnson: It’s always good to try to improve everything. Sometimes, finding an upgrade to a strength can help you solve a weakness later

4:55
Dexy’s Midnight Fowlers: Is Descalso a viable everyday 2B? He’s been surprisingly and consistently good, and plays almost every day.

4:55
Brad Johnson: If he plays, yes

4:55
John: Robles and Bird or Bellinger in a 14 team dynasty points league? Thank you!

4:56
Brad Johnson: As Robles basically hasn’t played this year, it’s very difficult to compare him to Bellinger. I think it’s safer to take the Bellinger side, but I could see being aggressive on Robles

4:56
Brad Johnson: Historically, betting against the prospect side of the deal is a winner

4:57
Me: Who would you rather have ROS. Braun, Gardner, or Desmond (12 tm roto w OBP)?

4:57
Brad Johnson: Braun

4:57
Brad Johnson: Desmond is a guy I’m trying to buy though

4:57
Brad Johnson: I moved a little too late even though I had the info I needed in a timely manner

4:57
Brad Johnson: Just didn’t really believe he could recover

4:57
Brad!: Musgrove got lit up by the stinking Reds his last time out.  Are you holding any shares, or is he just a streamer in a 14t league?

4:57
Brad Johnson: I’ve got a 12 team share

4:57
Brad Johnson: one lonely share

4:58
Brad Johnson: Roster is bouncing between 1st and 2nd, but the pitching staff is Paxton+garbage

4:58
Brad Johnson: I think ideally, a Musgrove belongs on a bottom feeder roster

4:58
surf jam steven: prefer eflin or pivetta keeper? same price

4:58
Brad Johnson: Pivetta

4:58
Chucky : Is Nimmo a younger left handed version of AJ Pollock? Keep forever. I’m thinking between AJs age (30) and injury prone, Nimmo might be the better long term OF#3?

4:59
Brad Johnson: I’m not really buying this comp, but I can see preferring Nimmo at this point

4:59
Brad Johnson: Still waiting for the league to adjust to him

4:59
April: What is the appropriate response when someone offers Matt Koch or Seth Lugo for my keepable Eugenio Suarez in an NL only league?

4:59
Brad Johnson: Poor Suarez

4:59
Brad Johnson: Legit good fantasy player and has no value

5:00
Brad Johnson: Just say you aren’t taking offers for Suarez

5:00
Brad Johnson: In the unlikely event they fall in love, they’ll start sending real proposals

5:01
Frank: Been offered Kris Bryant, Strasburg, and Correa for my Vladito and Senzel in a H2H Keeper league. The players offered are basically rentals (you can only keep a player for three years maximum, and they’ve already been kept that long), and Vlad Jr. and Senzel are at the start of their keeper cycles. I’m on the fringe of contention after a few years of rebuilding a team I inherited–fifth place in a twelve-team league. Would you pull the trigger or hold?

5:01
Brad Johnson: This would be easier if it was a roto league

5:01
Brad Johnson: One thing you can try is evaluating the actual roto scores. Are you doing better or worse than the totals imply?

5:02
Brad Johnson: You have to feel like those three give you a largely upgraded chance to reach a money spot

5:02
Brad Johnson: Typically, H2H is too fluky for that to be true

5:02
John: Leonys or Josh Harrison in a 12 team roto? Thanks!

5:02
Brad Johnson: Harrison in most cases

5:02
Charizard: Is Altuve for deGrom/Schwarbs a fair trade in dynasty?

5:02
Brad Johnson: I’m not a huge fan

5:03
Brad Johnson: Think you’re selling low on a top 5 player

5:03
Marvin: Trade away Eaton for Folty? Fair offer?

5:03
Brad Johnson: A little light in my books. Have to be very bullish about Folty or bearish about Eaton for that to add up

5:03
Karl: Mookie Betts for Kershaw and Reddick? 12tm roto

5:03
Brad Johnson: Absolutely not

5:04
fortuan t: Thanks Brad; unique league, one FA per month.  Fielding offers on JD Martinez; could use pitching help. Cole offer and a Morton offer on the table (with sweeteners). Has the sand run out on their respective magical interludes?

5:04
Brad Johnson: Although I still like both of them. I probably wouldn’t take Cole AND Morton for JDM

5:04
Brad Johnson: So those sweeteners better be agave-spiked

5:04
baseballfan: eflin or romero as a RP/SP?

5:05
Brad Johnson: Right now, Eflin. Future years, I’ll go back to Romero.

5:05
McFly: What % of your bench do you like dedicate to bench bats in a 12 tm H2H where pitchers are aggressively streamed and all the top relievers are scooped up? Say you have 7 bench spots.

5:06
Brad Johnson: 3-4 probably. But I’m an unusual H2H player. I put 70% of my draft budget into elite SP then try to scrounge cheap SP breakouts too

5:06
Brad Johnson: So I need more platoon work on the offensive side of things

5:06
Taylor: Ketel marte or descalso from FA? I need a 2b. Which one should i target ROS?

5:06
Brad Johnson: Ketel

5:06
Brad Johnson: He’s playing well lately

5:07
Robin: About to cut Luke Weaver.  Any reason to keep him over T.Ross, Fulmer, Montgomery, Pivetta?

5:07
Brad Johnson: No. Pivetta and Fulmer would be my targets

5:07
Matt D: Nimmo over Gardner ROS?

5:07
Brad Johnson: Yes. Definitely

5:07
Micah: I recently traded JD for Diaz, Morrow, and Giles (flags fly forever!) and now need to cut some RP. Could you rank these RP for S, H, ratios value ROS?

Romo, Hughes, Gsellman, Ramos, O’Day

5:07
Brad Johnson: Assuming that’s Edubray and not injured AJ

5:08
Brad Johnson: Hughes is the easiest cut

5:08
Brad Johnson: O’Day may be next easiest

5:08
Brad Johnson: Romo kinda sucks but he’s still the most CL pitcher in TB

5:08
Brad Johnson: Gsellman seems stuck behind a couple guys

5:09
Brad Johnson: Ramos is due for a thrashing of regression

5:09
Brad Johnson: Probably keep Romo, Ramos, Gsellman in that order as of today

5:09
Brad Johnson: Time to start wrapping up

5:09
Make Me A Winner: Does Buxton have 20 SB in him ROS?

5:09
Brad Johnson: They’re in him, but 12 is a more reasonable projection

5:10
Tommy Tutone: What are your thoughts on Bradley Zimmer and Nick Williams in dynasty?

5:10
Brad Johnson: Love Zimmer, a little cool on Williams

5:10
Sted : Do you like to use SIERRA?

5:10
Brad Johnson: I’ll look at it. Not really making any decisions based on it

5:11
Brad Johnson: But it’s a good smell test if you’re used to using FIP measures and see something smelly

5:11
Al: Why are you trying to buy Ian Desmond? To my untrained eyes, his batted ball profile (high GB%, specifically) looks atrocious and he’s making the least contact of his career

5:11
Brad Johnson: Some statcast reports show a month-long improvement in hard hit and launch angles

5:12
KL: Anyone with an opinion on ROY ?

5:12
Brad Johnson: Good one to end on… send your picks!

5:12
surf jam steven: soto

5:12
Brad Johnson: Just Soto?

5:13
Brad Johnson: I guess everybody needed to go reference a leaderboard

5:13
Vegan Man!: Gleyber!

5:13
OddBall Herrera: Acuna still has time to steal back the ROY thunder from Soto

5:14
Dexy’s Midnight Fowlers: Nimmo!

5:14
Brad Johnson: Does he qualify?

5:14
Brad Johnson: no

5:14
McFly: Albeeezy

5:14
Brad Johnson: Also doesn’t qualify

5:15
Ghost of Ned Yost: Walker B

5:15
Brad Johnson: RIP

5:15
Brad Johnson: I’ll add Hader and Seranthony from the pitcher side

5:15
Nuf Said: NL = Acuna

5:15
KL: Anderson?

5:15
Brad Johnson: Current rookie WAR leader among position players

5:15
Brad Johnson: Hader has the overall lead

5:15
surf jam steven: for solid 10 days it was austin meadows

5:15
fortuan t: Gleyber

5:15
OddBall Herrera: Prediction: Torres finishes with more ROY votes than Candelario, Candelario finishes with a higher wRC+ and WAR

5:16
Ghost of Ned Yost: Hader qualifies?

5:16
Brad Johnson: Yep and 2.1 WAR

5:16
McFly: Don’t sleep on Muncy

5:16
Brad Johnson: Not a rookie

5:17
Brad Johnson: Muncy and Nimmo are such perfect clones – they even both seem to be rookies even though they aren’t

5:17
Ghost of Ned Yost: Hader

5:17
F-Rome: Bartolo Colon

5:17
Brad Johnson: And on that note…gg folks

5:17
migdog in the fog: do you wager on lines/spreads? if so what is your one sentence of advice

5:17
Brad Johnson: Honestly?

5:17
