If you take enough shrooms, you start to dream about how Rick Porcello is from the magical land of Zeranok, where Buehrles and Moyers can cruise 15 MPH below the speed limit.  Off shrooms, you just see Zeranok as zero ERA, no K.  Yesterday’s 9 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 0 Ks was solid, great, adjective.  Hard to not get excited about a complete game shutout, but I’m gonna try.  Heard a lot made of the fact that Porcello only needed 95 pitches to finish off the A’s.  That’s wonderful.  Somewhere, Greg Maddux smiled, then he tried to go behind the counter at his local post office to show them how they can be more efficient and nearly got arrested.  “Can we all just form a two-person line as we wait for Wet Willie’s Wild Slide?”  That’s Maddux at a water park with his kids.  I hear ya, Greg, when people are grouped together in a party of six in an amusement park line it drives me crazy too.  The worst is when they get up to the front and suddenly they have 25 other friends that were with them.  Any the hoo!  A 95 pitch CG SHO is great IRL (you like how I was illustrating efficiency with acronyms; though this parenthetical defeats that purpose), but Porcello’s efficiency doesn’t do a whole lot for me in fantasy if it comes with no Ks.  His K-rate is 5.2 and his walk rate is 2.  That’s pretty blehtastic.  I’d own him, since he gets the Rays next.  He’s not suddenly shooting up to ace status for fantasy.  I know, I know, that Porcello is one funghi, but he’s actually pretty close to borderline for 12-team mixed leagues.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

J.D. Martinez – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer.  Somebody’s carrying over their schmotatoness.  Or maybe that’s schmotatonez.  On a related note, J.D. should come to the plate to the Young Black Teenagers song, Tap the Bottle.  That would be amazeballs.  How am I not in charge of a P.A. system for a major league team?  I ask with sincerity.

Joe Mauer – Left yesterday’s game with a strained oblique.  Not the same, but related to me looking at his stats and saying, “Oh, bleak.”  I love how Rotoworld still managed to throw a positive spin into their news on him, mentioning how he had a 12-game hitting streak.  Yeah, and in eight of those games he had one hit.  Lowercase yay.  Regarding their ranking of Mauer in the first round, I play the scene from Menace II Society where the cop says, “You know you done f**ked up, right?”  As I said in January, just because Mauer was playing first, it never meant he was going to stay healthy.  He could DH and get hurt.

Eduardo Nunez – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer.  He’s hitting .556 in the last week, exclamation mark, dances around like the teacher in A Christmas Story when doing the A-pluses, exclamation mark, exclamation mark, exclamation mark.  Oh, wait, it’s in only two games.  Okay, I’d keep an eye on him for now.

Kendrys Morales – 3-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI.  Twins had the good fortune of going against some scrub.  Oh, Jamie Yields, what have ye wrought?  Without further ado…

James Shields – 5 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA up to 3.93.  It’s much worse than that recently too because he had a 1.60 ERA in April.  I wouldn’t drop him, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Royals say there’s a mechanics issue or a Disgraceful List trip.  Something is definitely wrong.  No dur, I know.  He gets the Rays next, which should be a solid game, but I’d bench him in most leagues until he shows something worthwhile.

Eric Hosmer – 4-for-4 with four singles.  The Juan Pierre Cycle!

Evan Gattis – No timetable for his return from the DL, but he received an epidural and maternity leave is only 3 to 5 days, so he better start his breathing exercises.

Mike Minor – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA up to 4.73.  Wait, I know this impersonation…it’s Matt Cain, right?  Oh, man, you got me.  That was good, Minor.  You’re a regular Soupy Sales.

Curtis Granderson – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer and 2nd in as many games.  If Fredi’s theory is to put B.J. Upton (1-for-4, 1 run, 13th steal) at leadoff because then other teams will say, “We can’t be that bad, so we’ll put anyone at leadoff,” it’s working as the Mets continue to go with Granderson at leadoff, their one legitimate power hitter.

Daniel Murphy – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .302 on the year and over .350 in the last week.  I already used my superpower writing the lede, so I’m gonna skip Murphy today.  What’s my superpower?  Talking negatively about a guy that is doing well.  I inherited it from my dad.

Stephen Strasburg – 7 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, lowering his ERA to 3.53.  Strasburg, Virginia may not want to become Buehrle, Virginia just yet.

Jayson Werth – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs.  He was hitting .095 in the last week, coming into this game, so he was due.  Not like Gattis.  The other due.

Domingo Santana – 0-for-4, 1 run, 3 Ks.  With Dexter Fowler going to the DL with shoulder soreness, the Astros called up Domingo.  Hey, it’s Matt Dominguez’s cousin!  They really need to call up Paulo Miercoles to get them over the hump.  Domingo has great power and speed and he strikes out a lot a lot a lot.  Maybe the Astros should reconsider their hiring of minor league coach, Rob Deer.  “When you see the ball, you guess if it’s a fastball or curve and then swing?  Any questions?”  Hands go up.  “Any questions is a figure of speech, now go get Rob Deer a tequila shot.”  Domingo actually struck out more than Springer and Singleton in the minors, so I’m expecting a .100-something average from him while he fills in for Fowler, unless pitchers just don’t know what to make of him and throw him all fastballs.  He’s only 21 years old and he could be something special in deep keepers, so there I’d look at him.

Jose Altuve – 2-for-3, 1 run.  Nothing to say on him, except this GIF.  Hehe.

James Jones – 3-for-6, 3 runs, 2 RBIs, 7 for his last 11 with 3 steals on Monday.  Was kinda surprised to not see any steals for him last night, but they’ll be there more than they’re not.  J.J. is SAGNOF-Mite!

Kyle Seager – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 13th homer.  He has 58 RBIs on the year.  That’s around 115 RBIs on the year pace.  85 proof positive that Seager’s a decent 3rd baseman.

Hisashi Iwakuma – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA down to 3.33.  Hisashi my dashi, slurp SLURP!

Everth Cabrera – Scratched with a strained hamstring.  The Padres won’t decide to put him on the DL until Friday.  They said, “It’s not like he’s done anything all year, what’s a few more days?”  They sound mean.

Seth Smith – 3-for-4, 3 runs and his 9th homer.  That’th brith, baby!

Carlos Quentin – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer.  He’s done less than nothing recently, but if he gets hot, he could hit five homers in a week.  Or just get injured again.

Mike Leake – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 11 baserunners, 4 Ks vs. the Padres.  That’s my fault because I streamed him.  I need a fantasy baseball exorcism.

Todd Frazier – 1-for-4, 1 RBI and his 13th steal.  Hubba hubba hubba.  You’re gonna make me do something I might regret, you sexy beast!

Devin Mesoraco – 2-for-4 and his 15th homer, in the 9th inning of an out-of-reach game.  I love garbage time homers!

Kolten Wong – Began his rehab assignment yesterday.  I look forward to him returning and watching Mark Ellis still play over him.  Don’t make me aggro, Cardinals, please.

Angel Pagan – Was not activated from the DL yesterday as was originally planned and is off to see a back specialist.  Pagan’s day-to-day when he’s healthy, so it’s a waiting game, which sounds like a Mary J. Blige song.  It’s a waiting game and I’m not gon’ cry!  I just sung that; you’re lucky you missed out.

Tim Lincecum – 8 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks.  Johnny Vander Meer’s niece’s time wasn’t completely wasted.  Don’t even have to worry about if you should own him, he gets the Padres next.  Of course, you should.

Pablo Sandoval – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .271 on the year.  Far from spectacular so far this year, but definitely passable.  Like Sandoval with a health food buffet.

Justin Masterson – 3 IP, 3 ER.  Yup, he’s at 100%.

Lonnie Chisenhall – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer.  Lonnie Gonnie!

Michael Bourn – 0-for-5.  Every Indians starter got a hit in a ten-run game, except, well, ticker tease!

Josh Beckett – 5 IP, 5 ER.  The Regression Fairies match their shoes and socks, they love everything Neil Patrick Harris is in when he’s singing, and they kill your starters ratios.

Chris Capuano – Red Sox released him.  So, if you see Capuano wandering the streets of Allston asking where Mr. Butch is, don’t try to approach him, call the authorities.

Shane Victorino – May resume a rehab assignment next week.  So, he’s going to update his LinkedIn profile?  Oh, resume not résumé!  That is mea culpa.

Clay Buchholz – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks vs. the Cubs and gets the White Sox next.  That’s the Chi-City Double Dip.  Something Stedman’s had to put up with for years.

Dustin Pedroia – 3-for-5, 1 RBI.  Now has three hits in three of the last four games.  Nice to get a little somethin’ somethin’ from our favorite little somethin’ somethin’.

Edwin Jackson – 6 IP, 1 ER, 10 baserunners, 3 Ks vs. the Red Sox.  Ha, good try, Edwin, but you can’t take the wind out of my Arrieta sails.

Steve Pearce – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer and, like, 19th homer in the last week.  I just went over Pearce yesterday, but since then I realized something.  He’s not Guy Pearce.  He’s not the star of anything.  He’s a That Guy.  That Guy specifically, he’s Stephen Tobolowsky.

Nelson Cruz – 1-for-4 and his 26th homer, hitting .280.  Since I told you to sell him about a month ago, he has 4 homers and is hitting .204.  Cust kayin’.

Joe Saunders – Rangers designated him for assignment.  Rangers said that assignment was to ‘not let the door hit ya, where the good Lord split ya.’

Mark Trumbo – About two weeks away from being activated.  Trumbo was originally traded so the Diamondbacks could make a run at the playoffs.  With that not happening, Trumbo will return just in time to muck up the D-Backs’ chances for the first pick in the 2015 amateur draft.   Prolly for the best since Kevin Towers would’ve traded that pick away for a defense-minded middle infielder that the team doesn’t even play.

Addison Reed – 1/3 IP, 1 ER.  Been about a week since his last blown save, so he was due.  He’s not in real danger of losing the job.  Yet.

Jeff Locke – 8 IP, 2 ER, 9 baserunners, 3 Ks vs. Wade Miley (8 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 10 Ks).  In a matchup of “Hey Maybe I’ll Stream That Guy” vs. “Or Maybe I Should Stream This Guy.”  Hopefully, your indecision ended better than in 2000.

Ernesto Frieri – 1 IP, 0 ER and the win.  Oh, man, he’s totally the friend of yours in high school that was the worst kid in social situations, and an absolute angel around parents.

Khris Davis – Left yesterday’s game with a shoulder strain.  Damn, this is gonna give his namelganger, Chris Davis, a chance to catch him in homers.  Khe’s listed as day-to-day, but this sounds more like a day-to-15-day-DL.  Therrific.

Drew Hutchison – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 10 Ks.  Member when all the rage was Hutchison was good in road games, then he got mollywhopped in a road game?  It was only ten days ago so you should remember.  Yesterday’s game was in Toronto where he had a 8.13 ERA entering this game.  What does all this mean?  Nothing really, it’s small sample size stuff — that’s what she said! — but it does illustrate a point that Hutchison is unreliable.  By the by, yesterday was Canada Day.  Canadians celebrated with logging, homo milk and BeaverTails.   Sounds like Pride Week.

Jose Bautista – 1-for-4 and his 16th homer as he returned from his hamstring injury.  Bangfizzle!

Colby Rasmus – 1-for-3 and his 12th homer, and his third homer in the last ten days.  Hasn’t done a lot else besides the power, and is hitting .228 on the year, which is across the street from Marla Gibbs.

Albert Pujols – 1-for-9, 2 runs, 1 RBI and his 17th homer.  Dare I say he golfed that ball out of there.

Josh Hamilton – 3-for-6, 2 runs and his 4th homer.  Four homers?  I know he was injured.  Of course, I know, I write these shizzes every day.  But four homers.  Wow.  It’s almost like him and Prince Fielder are out in the woods making a flump together.  Oh, and look up flump on Urban Dictionary if you don’t know what it is.  Might be the best definition ever.  “Hey, you boys were out in the woods a while.  What’s the big idea?”  “Aw, c’mon, ma, we were just making a flump.”

Kole Calhoun – 2-for-7, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, and 2nd homer in the last three games.  While you’re waiting to see if you should pick him up, others are picking him up and beating you.

Garrett Richards – 8 IP, 3 ER, 4 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA up to 2.81.  Peripheral-wise he’s not really that far off from that either.  He’s given next to no homers, so that could change, and his BABIP is a tad low, but he looks like at worst a 3.50 ERA pitcher.  At best, well, what you’ve gotten from him is the best.

Joe Smith – 2 IP, 0 ER and 2 saves.  Don’t worry, the Sciosciapath is in talks to see what the Pirates want to get back Frieri.

Dayan Viciedo – 2-for-8, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer, and his third homer in the last five games.  Hot schmotato alert!

Jose Abreu – 2-for-7, 3 RBIs and his 26th homer.  The Grande Dolor!

Jake Petricka – 2 IP, 0 ER in a losing game, which might’ve been him just getting work, if we are really trying to convince ourselves that Petricka will get the next save.

Cliff Lee – On track for his first rehab start on Saturday.  More was said, but this is the Cliff notes.

Carlos Ruiz – Not making any progress from his concussion.  I’d Google Concussion + Adderall, if I were the Phils, but I only wrote 70% of WebMD entries, what do I know?

Cody Asche – 2-for-5 and his 5th homer.  Hasn’t done a ton since his return from the DL, but this might be the start of something.  Definitely isn’t the end of something, since nothing’s started yet, right?  Hmm, I riddled myself into a logic puzzle.

A.J. Burnett – 6 IP, 3 ER, 10 baserunners, 10 Ks vs. the Marlins, ERA up to 3.92.  Apricot Juice has been the subject of trade rumors, and will likely be traded if the Phils can get back a wily vet.  What’s the price for Eric Chavez?  He’s got grit and left-handedness!

Marlon Byrd – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 16th homer.  Okay, if you throw in Byrd, you can have Chavez!

Henderson Alvarez – 7 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA is at 2.33.  Maybe when his ERA gets below 2 you’ll stop thinking of him as a streamer.  I got your number, and I’m standing behind you eating granola.  Hey, what’s up?

Christian Yelich – 2-for-5, 1 run and his 11th steal and his first since he returned from the DL.  For a second I thought he was going to say the dog ate his speed.

Hiroki Kuroda – 8 IP, 2 ER, 10 baserunners, 7 Ks, lowering his ERA to 4.08.  He’s been essentially a streamer this year, and the Stream-o-Nator likes his next start, and so do I, so *raspberries lips*.

David Price – 7 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 9 Ks.  Remind me next year to put flashing lights around a David Price buy low at the end of April.  Ta!

Logan Forsythe – 2-for-4, 1 RBI. Okay, people are gonna start to think I really like this guy.  He is hitting near-.450 in the last week, so yummers.

Yunel Escobar – Hit the DL with shoulder soreness.  This opens up everyday playing time for my new main squeeze, Logan Forsythe.  Who?  Oh, him again!  We’ll see how long Logan’s run can last or if he’ll just get renamed Hunger Games for a younger generation.

Grant Balfour – 1 IP, 0 ER and his 11th save.  Joe Maddon went with him last night for the save because he saw Balfour walking his grandmother and said Balfour had good karma.  Matt Joyce hit third because he was talking to this homely girl, and being really sweet.  Jennings hit leadoff because he said excuse me when he bumped into someone.  Kevin Kiermaier hit ninth because he screamed at a child, “Eat some more ice cream, fatty!”

    If Khris Davis indeeds hits the DL, as seems likely, is he still worth holding onto over Calhoun or Viciedo?

    To put Davis in my DL slot I’d have to drop Wil Myers, which you’d advise against, no?

    My other OF are Bautista, Melky, McCutchen. It’s a deep mixed redraft roto league.

    I’m 2nd in 4 of 5 offensive categories (8th in BA) but last in W’s. The rest of my pitching is upper middle of the pack. Was offered Lackey for McCutch (which I quickly turned down). He does have Kershaw, however. Do you think Kershaw for McCutch? He is 1st in 4 of 5 pitching categories but middle of the pack in offense. He’s in 3rd place and I’m in 4th. Would you float the Kershaw for McCutch trade? Thanks.

  17. Damn, I wish I drafted Jose Abreu. A first year MLB player that hits 45 HR? Has that ever happened? I know he’s not a typical first year MLB player cause he played a few seasons in Cuba’s pro league -but still? This is impressive. He and Puig are doing their part to help bring up the value of Cuban league players. Some MLB team may even sign Abreu’s older brother Paco who’s 350 lbs and hasn’t swung a bat in two years..

    Offered this trade in my 12 team 5 keeper roto league (need avg, sb’s, era, & whip to jump from 3rd to 1st):

    I give up Pujols and Machado
    I get Brett Gardner and Bumgarner

    It’d leave me with a potential keeper stable of Rizzo, D. Gordon, A. Jones, Scherzer, Bumgarner, Harvey, G. Polanco, Trumbo, and Desmond to choose from.

    FACT OF THE DAY:
    The “ZIP” in “Zip Code” Stands for Zone Improvement Plan

    • Cutch's Dreads says:
      (link)

      @JeF With 1 F: Fact! It also means: ““ZIP” is actually an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan. However, the USPS intentionally chose the acronym to indicate that mail travels more quickly when senders mark the postal code on their packages and envelopes. So, it makes sense that the term “ZIP code” would be related to being zippy, which means “lively” or “peppy.”

      @FIPfool: I’d go Porcello, Stroman and then Hutchison. Starting pitching comes a dime a dozen, so I wouldn’t be looking to add on too much to Panda to obtain Cueto. I’d do Porcello and Panda, but definitely wouldn’t throw in Cobb or Cole.

    This may be better for the prospect guys, but is Kyle Zimmer still considered a high prospect with all the injuries he suffered this year? I’ve got a trade offer for him that seems too good to be true (I give Jordy Mercer to get Zimmer), and it’s hard to find any thoughts on what he could be next year.

    • Peter Nincompoop says:
      (link)

      @Jonesy: Zimmer was the #5 overall pick in 2012. Was projected at the start of the season to be super-two call up, but injuries have derailed that. The last news I heard is that he probably isn’t pitching until the Arizona Fall League. I think he’s going to be a great late-round pick up next season. If it’s a dynasty league (which it sounds like it is), I’d hold, but Mercer isn’t a bad get.

      • Jonesy says:
        (link)

        @Peter Nincompoop: @Peter Nincompoop: I would be giving up Mercer to get Zimmer. We do a prospects draft mid-year where you take 3 players with no MLB experience, and you can keep a total of 3 of them for that year and two more. I only have Taillon left, though our draft is coming up next week where ill get three more. Zimmer would be one of 5 that i would have to choose 3 from before the start of next year. Im pretty much out of the race this year,so considering this as a bit of a lottery ticket.

    12 team 6×6 roto w/OPS, play 9 active bats w/Util. Been offered Goldy, Billy Hamilton, and Heyward for Jose Abreu and A. Jones. Heyward is useless to me and I can see Abreu being at least as valuable as Goldy the rest of the way. Not interested in moving A. Jones for Hamilton’s speed, but I could use speed.

    Would countering with my Abreu, Chisenhall, and Rajai for Goldy, B. Hamilton, and Harrison be reasonable? I have Arenado coming back for 3B.

    Morning Grey, MIke, everyone
    I got some Middle Infield problems (namely Villar being sent down). Deciding who to drop and who to pick up.

    Deep 16 Team H2H Redraft league, largish rosters:

    Three choices on who to drop – Chris Carter, Venable, Villar.
    I really don’t want to give up on any of them, deep league and all, but who would you lose of those three? Outfield is my strongest position, but I really will kick myself when Venable has a ridiculous August.

    And who would you pick up for the shortish term(2-3 weeks) – Forsythe, Nunez, Dietrich, Drew, Tejada.

    Though I suspect you might say Forsythe, my concern is when Escobar gets back(eligibe July 10th), he won’t play everyday anymore, but not sure with crazy Joe running things.
    Same concern with Nunez, good bat, but when Santana comes back he prob goes back to the bench.

    Thanks and good luck everyone. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to get back to losing to the last place team in my league this week.

    P.

      • Phil of the Future says:
        (link)

        Thx, dude. Villar was some tease this year with that April, huh? Man….

        So you’re thinking Villar is the starter again at some point this year for a long enough stretch that he’s worth rostering? (Obviously you do, I know! Come on, Phil, don’t be daft. You’re never gonna get anyone to flump with you that way.)

            One more thing to pick your brain about, as I forgot to include him.

            Kike(pronounced Keekay, thankfully) Hernandez is interesting. Saw the Astros lineup today and Porter is DH’ing him. I don’t know, but I could see a Danny Santana-esque start to his career. He came in late and hit well last night and there might be something there.

            Know anything about him? I might grab him if he’s getting everyday ABs instead of Forsythe.

              Enrique? He’s not going to play often, some light power and speed, hit .236 in Double-A last year…

              • Phil of the Future says:
                (link)

                Thx. He has been really playing well at AAA lately, flashing power and speed, getting on base. But that could be PCL noise. Still, if he starts hitting right out of the gate here I think Bo is gonna run him out there somewhere most days. Eh, maybe it’s a reach.

                But when you spend the bulk of your middle infield auction money on Gyrko, such is life. Still holding that dude by the way, and I think he ends up with 18 HRs this year. I’m telling you, Grey! Right?…Right?…Anyone?..Bueller?

          @costaricanchata: You must still be mourning Costa Rica’s loss in the KO round of the World Cup. I understand. I agree that Street isn’t a set-up guy, but how many times have we seen a closer on a sub-par team (that’s a compliment to the Padres) get traded to a contender only to be a set-up guy? 50/50 chance that happens.

            ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE that Street ends up in a set-up role this year .

            if you check the history , i think that you’ll find that Huston Street
            has the highest Saves /conversion percentage since 2012 .
            2012 … 95.8 %

    Gray, I was offered Goldschmidt and Minor OR Kluber for El Grande Dolor, Teharan and Polanco. I like the trade. On JB ranks, Minor is 18 and Kluber 21 (same thing). I like Minor (NL, weak division)… your opinion please, Minor or Kluber?

      @El Guapo: Kluber

    I hope when my 2 year old boy is playing fantasy baseball in 20 years he can read about “the Juan Pierre Cycle” here (or at ESPN when Grey heads there).

    That might be the only reason he’d text me is to ask what the hell that means.

  59. Grant says:

    Scherzer for Adam Jones straight up? I would get rid of Jones to get Scherzer. My OF is Crisp, Polanco, Jones, and Khris Davis. I have Trumbo coming back in a couple weeks. I could pick up some waiver wire action for the time being. What do you think? 14 team pretty deep benches, Keep 2 batters a year, I have Goldy and Polanco for my keepers going forward for the time being as I can see at this time anyway. Scherezer would be my keeper then, next best probably Gray, or even Arrieta at this point if he keeps it up.

    • Peter Nincompoop says:

      @Grant: I’d hold onto Adam Jones.

    Which 1 gets benched out of this bunch today? Of course, if Cron gets scratched from the lineup, my decision will be made for me…

    • Mello Yello says:

      @kronuts: Yeah that would not be Danks if MegaCron (trademark it Dan Snyder!) gets benched…probably Votto, but he’ll probably light your bench stats up…what I’m saying is that this is a good problem to have, ’cause I kinda like ‘em all (can you imagine how sweet a Hosmer homer…a Ho(s)mer would be right about now?)

  67. Mello Yello says:

    Canada did give us Rush…so there is that…

    I thought Abreu’s homer was gonna be a double off the bat, but then it kept going and going…it’s like “damn you Cuban Giancarlo (I still kind of like Mike) Stanton!…why must you help the team that I don’t give a shizz about and ruin the one that basically consumes me!

      @Billy Beane Is Not My Lover: I used him as a silver lining to a trade package and shipped him out. One-year wonder, Brady Anderson style.

    • stonepie says:
      (link)

      @Billy Beane Is Not My Lover: huh? his GB% is very close to last years rate and in june it was even lower (31.7%). looks like some bad babip luck given his profile.. he’s still got alot of power and hitting fly balls. he’ll be fine

    • Peter Nincompoop says:

      @Billy Beane Is Not My Lover: As an addendum to my previous response, I’d try to trade his name value. You definitely should not cut him.

    • Mello Yello says:

      @George Zip: Vogt’s probably the best player, so if it’s consistency, or the idea to handcuff the two, then yeah. If you’re looking for counting stats, probably rookie nookie Caleb…gotta like how everything is trending up, and you know he’s not going anywhere

  73. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    Ok, I have a HUGE trade idea that I need some help on. We are in a 5 player keeper league where we keep 1 forever and 4 for two years each. This may be the offer on the table:

    Give – C.Davis/Longoria/Springer/Scherzer
    Get – Trout

    I would then pick up a streamer for an SP, Napoli and Granderson. I have Rizzo at 1st, Arenado/Pedro/Machado can take over for Longoria. My rotation after losing Scherzer would include Teheran, Bailey, A.Wood, Ventura, Cole, and some streamer action. Is this too much to give up for the best player in the game?

    8 Team H2H – H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OB+SLUG, W, QS, SV, KS, KS/9, ERA, WHIP

    • Peter Nincompoop says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: I’d pull the trigger.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Mello Yello: @Peter Nincompoop: the only thing holding me up is that I have only two more moves for the week, so it would kind of hamper me for the week. Not sure he would do it anyway, but I think I gotta make the offer.

    Dump Taijuan Walker for Porcello?

  75. Rags says:
    (link)

    11-team NL only, keeper league. And there’s no bench so if you own a starter, you have to take every one of their starts.

    Someone offered me Jansen and Dan Haren (both unkeepable) for Tyson Ross @1, Ian Kennedy @ 6 and Kris Bryant.

    Bryant’s not really on the table, but I’m thinking of offering a supplementary MiLB pick instead. Is that too much to give? NL-only, closers are like gold in our league. Fwiw, if Kennedy gets traded to the AL, you still get the rest of his stats from this year but he can’t be kept.

    • Mello Yello says:

    6×6 (OPS & QS) H2H. I’m leading all hitting cats but SB, where we’re tied, but I have very little team speed. Looking pretty likely to lose ratios and SV on the pitching side. Everything else is close–tied in W, up 10 K and 1 QS, but my opponent has 3 more starts left than me (better matchups too), plus up to 6 moves to my 4. Do I grab J. Jones for SAGNOF, or stream, starting with Odorizzi today, and try to maintain my K lead or steal W or QS?

    • Mello Yello says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: Sounds like you’re in a damned if you, damned if you don’t situation…I would go Jones now over starting Odor at The New Yankee Workshop today, but if someone pops up that is a more favorable stream option, go for it…this is the having your cake and eating it too agenda

    HI Grey I have Porcello!!

    Andrus for Longoria what do you think? Even he needs speed I need a 3rd baseman and obviously the power won’t hurt.

    Also what are your thoughts on Colon SS KC? Will he give me a decent average and speed? or is a bad pick up.

    Thanks

Dickerson will lose his gig soon enough, and I don’t trust Walter to keep him in the lineup – which I guess could be said about Calhoun and his crazy effing manager. But I’d still put the ‘Houn above those two.

    I know that you gave Jean Segura the lede in a recent buy-sell column, and I also know that you believe closers should be shipped out for whatevs you can get for them. So I have an offer for his Segura for my Houston Street.

    The issue is that I have Escobar at SS now, and I’d have to drop him. Do you think the Escobar-Segura upgrade is worth it if I could get something else for Street?

    Hi Grey. Would you accept this trade? 5 x 5 using OPS instead of BA H 2 H 12 team keeper league. Receiving Wainwright for Springer and Madbum. Based on our rules for keepers, if I take it, I would intend to keep Wainwright next year (over choice now of Pujols). Was not planning on keeping Madbum next year as I have Donaldson slotted in that spot based on where I drafted them. Would not keep Springer, as I have Polanco slotted in that spot. Losing Springer would just free up a bench spot for me and leave me with every position still filled, as I am now mixing and matching 6 guys for 5 spots – (Melky, J Upton, Pujols, Ortiz, Springer, Polanco). Would then pick up a bench OF (Garret Jones comes to mind) for extra bench spot.

      Eh, I don’t like it

      • Lee says:
        (link)

        Thanks. Not sure if it changes anything, but he quickly added Willy Peralta as well. My bottom 3 SP would then be Peralta, Hutchinson, and Hahn, and would probably drop the worst of them for a 4th bench OF. Does that change your mind, and if so which of those 3 SP would you drop?

            @Grey: Hi Grey. He countered adding Yelich instead of Peralta. So Yelich and Wainwright for my Madbum and Springer. I know you said sell Springer high, so want to make sure I give him up for a fair but good deal for me. Thanks again!

              • Lee says:
                (link)

                @Grey: Honestly it would be to give me Wainwright as a keeper for next year, who I think would be a better choice over my other choices for that level (based on being kept from last year) of Pujols, Ortiz, Bailey or Posey, while still keeping me at same level this year (Madum for Wainwright and using my bench of Melky in OF spot instead of Springer with Yelich as Bench instead of Melky). Madbum would not have been able to be kept on the same level based on our rules since he was not a keeper from last year, and I drafted him in first 5 rounds, which I want to keep Josh Donaldson in that pick category. Does that make sense now, or still should decline?

    Respectfully, you’ve got to stop beating this joe mauer horse. Yes, rotoworld was mistaken but I feel like mauer gets an update everyday, more often then he rightfully should, just to so you can point out that rotoworld was wrong and you were right. We’re all hit or miss. You’ve missed a few this year. And you do it with other players too. Brian Dozier has 15 hrs, 15 sb, and 60 runs scored on July 1…that’s a great MI year for a waiver wire guy in anybody’s book. However, you have to poo poo it because he isn’t your sleeper. If brad miller had the EXACT same stat line you’d say how 15/15, 60 runs is useful despite the .235 average, and he’s one good week away from .260.

    Your stuff is informative, but your bias is undeniable. This site has become popular. I saw razzball on a cable channel sports network. You’ve made it. No need to play the small guy role of knocking other sites and being defensive. Your stuff is good enough. Just my two cents.

    I’m pretty far out, so looking to next year. We keep two pitchers – am I giving up too much to get Scherzer if I give up Anibal, Chapman and Heaney for Scherzer, Hawkins, Hale and Wheeler? Hale and Heaney are in there because we must start a rookie pitcher.

    my league has 3 DL slots and i currently have fielder, harvey, shane on the DL (10 team 5×5 h2h keeper). Gattis just hit the DL. Should i drop victorino to slot gattis onto the DL or drop one of lackey or stroman?

      Are you really gonna keep Fielder? You can also drop Victorino…

        @Grey: im not really sure on fielder. hed count as a 7th round pick if i decide to keep him. issue with dropping him is that if he clears waivers, whoever picks him up can keep him as a 25th rounder

    Looking ahead to next year after a rash of injuries has pushed me out of contention in 12 tm roto (*sigh*). Guy in 1st wants my Billy Hamilton, who I was planning to keep as one of my six keepers (Trout, Posey, Cano, Bruce, Felix, Hamilton).

    Am I crazy to say no to a deal that gets me CarGo (the OG CarGo, not CarGoGo) for essentially Hamilton+spare parts? I just love the fact that B-Ham can basically single-handedly win me the SB category without killing me in OPS like a lot of SAGNOFers do.

    I have a man crush on CarGo but am concerned that with all his injuries he may be starting his decline. Please advise.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d hold, I could see it going either way, but CarGo’s getting old and Hamilton wins you a category like you said…

      • stumanji says:

    Nolan Arenado (finger) will be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.
    Arenado has been cleared to return to action after picking up six hits — including a pair of doubles — over 18 rehab at-bats with Triple-A Colorado Springs. It will be a nice boot to a Colorado offense that’s dealt with numerous injuries.

    So I was just offered Mike Minor for Jason Hammel in a 10-team, H2H categories league with QS instead of W. Am I overthinking this offer? I feel like Minor is definitely a buy low, while Hammel is a sell high (although he has FIP of 3.11 and SIERA of 3.18 compared to 4.49 and 3.56 for Minor, respectively).

    My other SP are: C. Sale, C. Hamels, S. Gray, A. Wood, D. Fister, C. Kluber, and D. Holland on the DL. What should I do? Thanks boss.

    Stuck with a DL issue with Arenado coming back today. I have Chisenhall who is raking and Zimmerman who has 3B/OF eligibility. Already have a crowded OF with Stanton, both Cargos, Bruce, Brantley and Ozuna (i know it sounds like a 3 team league, but I’m suffering at the middle infield as a result, and have Pujols/Hosmer at 1st, so meh)

    Which would you trade given the opportunity or drop if you can’t trade? And which should return the most value in a trade? I could use a starter, and desperately need a 2B, but the guy hoarding 5 2B in our league isn’t paying attention, so 2b go to his team to die. thanks.

    in 16 teamer with this staff: annabelle/milone/heaney/bauer/porcello/wily p/kazmir/keuchel/hahn/liriano (DL). with arenado coming back i have to drop either
    1. cron/dickerson/rajai/scooter/hill (but need 2 2B with scooter benched against lefties)
    2.a closer putnam/mejia
    3. or trade wright and a SP for a better SP.
    thinking 3 is the way to go. sound right.

      @goodfold2: or could wait to see if wright gets DL’ed.

        @goodfold2: really my pitching is mostly just below average in this 16 teamer (my only espn league), but offense is good. arenado is just making me fix this all year problem now.

    Another owner asked if I’d trade Moss. I have Goldschmidt and Pujols, but can use Moss in the OF. The only position I am weak at is 2B where I have under-performing Prado and recently acquired Mookie Betts. I have been considering picking back up Scooter Gennett, but that fact that he doesn’t play every day stinks in our weekly league.

    At 2B he has Cano and Rendon. I was considering Moss for Rendon. Thoughts?

    Or what about Moss and Longoria for Rendon and Cano?

    now that we have a lot of at bat data i need to drop somebody for arenado. it’s looking like rosario for sure. mesoraco finally is playing a lot and this year he is decided better than rosario (so far). looking at free agents zunino/gomes have both been at least as good as rosario (if i get another injury i will likely grab one of those 2, since catcher spot gets most days off by far over other players) if rosario gets grabbed. he probably won’t anyway in this 10 teamer. so i’m right to drop rosario over mesoraco.

    12t H2H 7×7 (OBP/XBH + QS/IP)

    I give: Rizzo + Porcello + 2015 1st Round pick
    I get: McCann + Latos + Freeman + 2015 20th Round pick

    Let’s ignore the fact that the pick swap is highway robbery. I just had Gattis go down, and I picked up Gomes as a fill-in. I feel pretty bleh about McCann.. so how can I get this deal done? I want Latos, but I’m not convinced Freeman > Rizzo at this point. What do you think about..

    I give: Rizzo + Porcello + 5th Round

    one owner in that 16 teamer mentioned above is starting schoop at 3B but has F-her/price/kershaw/kluber/samardzija/shields. i would think f-her/kershaw are too good, but is the order i should try to get these for my wright and one of my shittier pitchers (bauer/heaney/liriano)
    price/kluber/shields/samardzija
    2. is bailey for wright str up good i could drop bauer after wards to activate arenado
    3. j. zimm for my wright and SP (same drop)
    4. one guy is starting mostsuckass everyday at 3b. i could attempt to get (won’t happen probably) bumgarner or stras for wright and a 2nd SP (better than bauer obv)
    5. arrieta for wright str up
    6.wood/archer/wacha str up for wright

    what’s the overall order for targeting these guys? (assuming all those previously mentioned deals are good for me. say so if any of them isn’t enough for wright and/or worse SP)
    price/(bumgarner or stras)/zimm/kluber/ryu/shields/wood/arrieta/bailey/samardzija/archer/wacha sound about right? when i target a really good SP should i add my kazmir.

    Stanton is a no doubter. Other than that I’m pretty open.
    Votto kipnis beltre Matt carpenter polanco Felix

    We keep five I’m leaning towards Stanton Felix and polanco and seeing what I can get for the rest. Am I wrong? Are Votto and beltre sure fire keepers for next season? Beltre a year older. Rather be the guy that gave up a season too early than the one who kept him a season too long, no?

    RP: (3 slots for that) gregerson/smith/mcgee
    who is the drop for Belt on friday when he gets back? 10 SP slot (wood i would think if so) or a hitter. don’t probably need 4 bench hitters. guessing it’s brad miller or duda (but he’s been great) since the t.wood roster spot could be used for streamers (which there are good one’s, since in this league most teams have way too many bench hitters)

      @goodfold2: 2. what about wright and malone?
      opp doesn’t want wright + bauer. i’m thinking wright + wily P (keuchel/kazmir/hahn) is too much.

        @Grey: ok, so ryu is low enough that only
        1. wright and bauer is ok? (he’s on fence actually with this)
        2. bailey or ryu (whichever i get will be keeper)
        a. is wright and bauer too much for bailey? (i know bailey owner)

    Who would you drop for Arenado’s return. The following are the only droppable (league doesn’t do trades…already tried that angle): Wright, Rios, Choo, Marte, Gregory Polanco, J Upton, Blackmon. Or drop Arenado for Wright’s return?

    CDavis owner basically told me fire sale and that this guy blows…Its 10 tm lg dont have ton to give because frankly most my guys are comparable or better. Call me crazy I even hesitate to trade Dickerson for him. No matter what he will be drag on production.

    I think dickerson plays right once Cargo comes back and will prob get second most plaing time of the bunch but still with either 4 or 5 OF he probably take 2 days off so I am preparing for alternative for him.

    A Thinking most expendable bat trade dickerson for Davis

    B Roll with Dickerson and with shallow league find hot bat or make trade when time comes. May be a hosmer panda type whatever pops up around that time.

      @john: typo…he could be drag and prob will until he gets hot.

    Great read as usual.

    Quick question. Picked up Tyson Ross to stream today. Is he worth holding on to?

    12 team redraft. Staff is Sale, Bum, Shields, Stroman, Walker, Wood, Ross. Any of them worth losing to open a stream spot?

    Thanks!

      Thanks! I’d hold him…Lose Stroman
