    Any thoughts on Josh James? I know Houston has a deep roster but are you buying what he is doing in aaa? that’s pcl too. I own puk who may not be seen until late next year if everything goes right. Should i stick with puk or take a flier on james? Thanks

      @Scott: I wouldn’t dump Puk for James. It’s a tough call, because things have looked good statistically, but I’m not so sure his success hold ups against MLB hitters. Now, if the league is more shallow, meaning you can add players like Puk constantly throughout the year, you’re competing, and need pitching, I can see doing it. On its face, I would not.

    Ralph,
    What is the story with Bohm? What kind of a injury does he have?
    I heard he got hit by a ball and apparently hit a nerve and nothing since. He has been out for about a month now?

      @Marti Harris: Huge raw power, below average hit, lots of Ks, and lots of homers.

    Trying to balance win now and future in a keep forever. Any of these guys droppable in your opinion? I like all of them but could use the roster flexibility. Jeater downs, Anthony Alford, Jeff McNeil, jhailyn ortiz, Brandon Lowe, wander Javier, Nate Pearson.. thank you as always.

    Hey Ralph, I’m in a 10 team NL only dynasty league. We can carry 10 minor league players on our roster. I have a spot open and was thinking about adding Touki Toussaint. With a the young arms that the Braves have with Gausman now and Folty, where do you see Touki long term. I really like his perephials, but to add a minoreage player is $5 and I didn’t want to spend that if he projects as a bullpen arm. Thanks!
