Brad Johnson Baseball Chat: 9/18/2018

Here’s today’s chat transcript. It was a good one.

4:01
Brad Johnson: Hey folks, we’ll get started in a moment or two.

4:03
Jake Junis Priest: Aroldis: is he a quick activate or wait and see? He can kill a ratio but might get saves off the bat…

4:03
Brad Johnson: I think he’ll quickly return to the 9th inning, and there isn’t much risk to your ratios

4:04
Brad Johnson: Obviously there is SOME risk, but he’s more likely to help than hurt

4:04
High Strikes Low Balls: Have to start either Josh James or Touki Toussaint this week. Who would you risk going with?

4:05
Brad Johnson: This is a tough one. They’re the same asset class – precocious, unestablished talents. They’ve both avoided hard contact in tiny tiny samples

Brad Johnson Baseball Chat: 9/11/2018

We chatted. ‘Twas good times. The transcript can be found below.

3:46
Brad Johnson: Hey folks, I’m going to get started a little early today and end right at 5:00pm.

3:48
Jake Junis Priest: AL Only: Would you start either/both Shoemaker vs. SEA or Yonny Chirinos (not starting but likely to pitch the bulk of the innings) vs. OAK this week? Thanks!

3:48
Brad Johnson: I think they’re both playable in the right situation. Whether that applies to you is another matter. Are you behind pace for IP or need to out-volume in a H2H matchup?

3:49
Brad Johnson: If not, they probably project to slightly below average in every category. Which is fine for volume plays but not if you need to improve your stats.

3:49
Brad Johnson: Opportunity cost matters too. If you’re using Shoemaker now instead of a trashpile later, then do it.

3:50
Al Kaline: Streamer for tomorrow: Joey Lucc @ Sea, Felix Pena vs. Tex , or Vargas vs. MIA
