For this Buy on Adam Frazier, we are hoping C**nt Hurdle doesn’t mysteriously bench Frazier for, say, Jose Osuna, Alen Hanson or John Jaso.  You’re thinking to yourself, “No way Hurds benches a guy that’s batting near-.360.  No way Hurds does this to a guy that regularly hit for a .300+ average in the minors.  No way Hurds does this with a guy that had a .400+ OBP in the minors and with an OBP near-.450 in the majors.”  Yeah, well, Hurds and way, Little Miss Muffet.  I have no proof of this, but I think C**nt Hurdle came up with the idea for gas station TV.  Not that there’s anything dumb about TV above the pumps while you get gas, but it’s so stupid that every 15 seconds it says, “Welcome to Gas Station TV!”  Imagine this anywhere else, “Hello, and welcome to living room TV!”  “Welcome back to guest bedroom TV, after just telling you that you were watching guest bedroom TV literally 15 seconds ago!”  “We now interrupt the conclusion for this week’s Better Call Saul finale to tell you exactly where you are.”  That Hurdle came up with announcing Gas Station TV every 15 seconds tells you how smart this guy is.  Frazier does appear to be as good as most leadoff guys around the league for OBP and speed.  Think a poor man’s Ender.  I will call him, Watching The Ending Of A Show On Gas Station TV.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Yan Gomes – There was legit no catchers I wanted to highlight this week.  Boeuf Welington was under 50% owned, but he’s about as appetizing as pâté cake, pâté cake when the baker’s man used liverwurst.

Justin Bour – Was nearly the lede this week, but since Smoak was the lede last week, I thought I needed to switch it up from a power-only first baseman.  This, of course, is arbitrary, like my dream where my maid, Graciela, and I were Indiana Jones and Short Round.  I was Short Round, she was Indy.

Josh Bell – There’s a chance I will stop highlighting Bell at a certain point.  Not because he’ll stop hitting the occasional homer, but because his name reminds me of Dr. Dre’s worst song. Compton was the most disappointing album, but at least it didn’t have a Ring Ding Dong (Keep Their Heads Ringing) remix.

Logan Morrison – Similar sitch as Bour and the rest of these 1st basemen.  If you say to me, “I can’t find a 1st baseman on waivers that does nothing but homer every few days,” I will IP block you.

Matt Adams – I just gave you my Matt Adams fantasy.  It was written on my grundel while looking in a ceiling mirror.

Sam Travis – Here’s what I said the other day, “Red Sox called him up to face lefties and play 1B and Moreland is now a platoon player.  C’est la vie.  Or say, “Effin crap,” if you own Moreland.  Prospector Ralph actually wrote a full Sam Travis sleeper last year.  I think that was prior to me sitting down with Ralph and saying, “How about less Red Sox posts?  Thanks, buddy,” then patted him on the butt and sent him on his way.  Travis is a poor man’s Moreland.  I will call him, Mitch Studio Apartment.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Tommy Joseph – “Unkie Grey, can you read me the story that’s 750 words long about how there’s five dozen power-only 1st basemen to pick up?”  See the Buy/Sell, kid.

Mike Napoli – After Pesci jumps up to mock-shoot Liotta in Goodfellas’ famous “How am I a clown?” scene, Liotta waves his hands to facetiously tell Pesci to stop.  Right now, I’m mock-waving a gun at all of these 1st basemen and they’re facetiously waving their hands.  You wanna laugh?  Last week Napoli asked me to christen his kid.

Ryon Healy – Seriously, one more 1st baseman and we’re gonna have ourselves a problem.

Devon Travis – Yeah, I love Travis in the big picture, but in the small picture… Where is he?  *puts on reading glasses*  Oh, there he is.  He’s been good, so pucker up, because, as Jaye P. Morgan once said on The Match Game, “I just shampooed my lips.”

Jed Lowrie – Does nothing really exciting, except he is swinging a hot bat right now.  He usually has a good week or two in his bat to make you go from “I don’t want Jed Lowrie” to “I don’t want Jed Lowrie long-term, but he’s fine for now.”

Rio Ruiz – For as many 1st basemen as there are to Buy, there’s un gotz as far as 3rd basemen, which brings us to Rio Ruiz.  The Ruiz River dissects the coastal town of Low Batting Average Shitsville and Empty Powertown, that used to be a Native American site filled with deep fly outs and dead coyotes.

Amed Rosario – You know what the Mets are waiting for to call-up Amed?  They’re waiting until you’re trapped in an elevator with no cell reception, so someone else in your league can grab him.

Tim Anderson – All joking aside, a guy gets hot, in this case, Tim Anderson, and I grab him, and hold him for a week or until he gets cold.  This whole, “Grabbed Tim Anderson yesterday, should I go with Didi?  I just dropped him two days ago.”  I appreciate your ADHD, but if you don’t give a guy a chance to hit on your team, you’re just shuffling players.

Didi Gregorius – Putting aside the obvious rap comparisons, he also sounds like a female Fargo character who talks a lot.  “You betcha, Didi Gregorius, now I have to run to Bemidji.”  This season of Fargo is too clever by half.  Been pretty disappointed in it, since it was one of my favorite shows its first two seasons.  If MasterChef isn’t good this season with new judge Blue Jays’ pitcher, Aaron Sanchez, I’m not sure what I’m going to do.

Max Kepler – You know what’s funny (to me, at least), no matter who you Google the first and 2nd suggested searches are “[Insert Player Name] jewish?” or “[Insert Player Name] girlfriend?”  Y’all a bunch of gossipy Chatty Pattys.  If someone wants to dominate search results, make a site, Is He Jewish and Does He Have a Girlfriend dot com.

Bradley Zimmer – For those wondering, because I was, Aaron Hicks was owned in more than 50% of ESPN leagues, so he didn’t make it into the Buy column (not officially, at least).  Zimmer’s like a poor Hicks.  I will call him Hillbilly.

Koda Glover – Was named closer by Dusty, after two months when he should’ve obviously been the closer.  Wait!  It gets better!  Now that Glover’s named the closer, I’m half-expecting him to not get the next few saves, because:  Dusty.

Brad Hand – Could be the new Padres closer.  To misquote Deniece Williams, “Let’s hear it for the Brad, let’s give the Padres a Hand.”

Tyler Glasnow – I don’t fully trust Glasnow, but Stream-o-Nator likes him this weekend, and I don’t think it’s simply because it’s lonely AF and streaming pitchers gives it a chance to talk to imaginary friends.

Matt Moore – Long story short, I looked at the Stream-o-Nator for the next four days and there wasn’t much there; pretty much a choice between Nadir Bupkis and Rock Bottom.

SELL

Aaron Judge – I hope you’re not walking under a Yankee fan’s window when they see this because it won’t be urine flying out the window (for a change) it will be their laptop.  We have so many Tools, I even lose track, but one of our many tools that I don’t mention enough is our Buy/Sell Tool, Buysellatops.  Our Buysellatops grazes during the day, and makes boku trades at night.  If you click ROS$ minus STD$, you’ll see guys that are Sells.  It’s saying these guys have given more value season to date than they will rest of the season.  It’s fine to disagree with Buysellatops, it won’t bite your head off.  It’s a vegetarian.  As for Judge, his HR/FB% is 42.9%.  If I were the type to el and oh and el again, I’d let out an uproarious laugh there.  Barry Bonds in a Wiffle Ball League doesn’t homer at that rate.  I like Judge, and wouldn’t sell him for a five-second commercial spot on Gas Station TV, but I would explore options.

    I just asked you on the other post about trading Morton for Bour. Two follow-up questions:

    1) Would you rather lose Shoemaker or Morton?
    2) Thoughts on Marwin Gonzalez ROS? I could get him on waivers instead of trading for Bour, but not sure he’s an upgrade over Moreland as my 2nd 1B. Our waivers are limited (only one per week, $5 each), which is why I haven’t pulled the trigger on that.

    Awesome always as usual Grey, have a great weekend!

        @Grey: Last one on this topic (maybe). The same guy offered me Thames for deGrom. I don’t know if my pitching can handle losing deGrom, seeing as how I’d be losing him as a keeper (we only keep 2 SPs). What do you think of that kind of deal? Or should I try and peddle another SP instead? Severino is going to hit innings issues at some point…

        My SPs are Scherzer, deGrom, Salazar, Severino, Jon Gray, Shoemaker, Nova, Morton, Pomeranz, Norris.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Not sure how badly you need Thames, but you need deGrom

          • Milarky says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Do I need Salazar? I’m not sure he’d do Thames for Salazar, and I worry I’m selling low, but getting Thames might be worth it. I have lots of high-K pitchers, but it’s hard to know whether they’re good enough outside of Scherzer/deGrom.

    Grey I am in love with Carrie Coon. Haven’t even seen Fargo yet this is all based on The Leftovers. Something about her voice, I die inside.

    Surprised you didn’t put Joe Ross in there (or is he too high owned already). Or Dinelson!

    Deja vu

    You’re damn right I’m streaming Buck Farmer today. George Runie “Buck” Farmer, to be precise. Good command, misses some bats, a couple of soft spots in the Tigers rotation. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship in my pitching starved dynasty. Or I could be cutting him with two outs in the bottom of the first. Tough to tell.

    Litebrite, I’ve been telling you for years, drafting zero starters is a viable RCL strategy. Even if you eventually want to carry one or two, you’ll generally find a streamer to hook on to that ends up a top 40 starter by the end of the year.

    For DFS players this weekend, you might not realize that the A’s are tied for 4th in MLB with 68 homers, only one behind the Yankees. Tanaka has already given up 13 HRs this year. Only guys with more allowed are Nolasco, JZim and Arroyo. By the way, if you had asked me to predict the three pitchers with the most HRs allowed by May 26, I might have gotten all three. Arroyo would have been a slam dunk. Anythehoo, I’d look to stack some A’s this weekend. Healy is cheap at 3000 on Fanduel. Canha is a nice play at 2300 if he gets the start. Lowrie is 2300 and will hit middle of the order.

    Speaking of Lowrie, I know Albridger like to make fun of him, but he is tied for 4th in MLB in doubles (with none other than Trout, Dickerson, Arenado and Betts), he’s hitting .287, he’s top 30 in runs scored, and his 6 homers are as many as Trumbo, Yelich, Dozier, Longoria and Hanley. He’s looked pretty good. There was a time many, many, many years ago when Lowrie was a bat first MI prospect in Houston. Maybe a mini-Zombino? And yes I’m giving my A’s colored glasses.

      Deja w/ a twist… re: Litebrite, the problem is there’s a good chunk of the draft where I just don’t want anything but SPs… I could go without any SPs, but there’s just so many infielders, RPs and outfielders a guy wants — Lowrie’s the worst, but hot

      • OaktownSteve says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        In RCL in lieu of SPs I’d draft the elite of the elite pen arms in them rounds. The Betancesess and the Millerses down through the Knebels.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Not bad to have them, but I always do fine with RPs later anyway

          • OaktownSteve says:
            (link)

            @Grey:

            Yes but you also do fine with SPs later. I think the thing about getting the 8th inning guys is you’re first in line for saves later on. In fact, it’s a great way to avoid drafting any closers. Usually end up with 3 by the ASB. Right now might already have Matt Bush, Knebel and Betances if you rolled that way.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              True, more than a few ways to skin the RCL cat… And with SPs I’ve drafted last two years in my RCL, I would’ve been better with MRs… Though McCullers has been good this year

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          You see Barretto coming up this year?

        • Cram It says:
          (link)

          @OaktownSteve:But no one is drafting Knebel or Archie Bradley or Peacock. You can find elite RP numbers during the season.

          I drafted Betances AND Miller in one RCL, and my team ERA/WHIP is 3.5/1.21. Streaming half a pitching staff is way riskier than the difference between Betances and another reliever.

    • @OaktownSteve:
      Not an Rcl guy and havent done a snake in years (they still exist?) but the Millers and Betances are always severly underdrafted in every roto league- Sometimes you have to dumb ot down when drafting…. ask yourself will I regret this come May 20th….. the answer is always No when it comes to these guys

    In my deep NL only, I’m hoping the Rio Ruiz gets held back by the Adonis Dam, which should be up and running again early next week.

    I heard a comment from a talking head saying they heard a scout in spring training say Rio Ruiz was the most improved player they’d seen in all of Florida spring training from 2016 to 2017. So that there is a quality piece of 3rd hand non-information.

    By the way, I hired two new grocery clerks so lately I’m spending some time at my desk pretending to pay bills while I do baseball goof off. It’s good to have my head back in some ball. The mlb.tv thing is so sweet. Watching my choice of old games on my phone. What an age we live in.

      It’s a great time to be alive, it’s a wonder anyone gets anything done… Then you think about what ‘getting done is’ and you watch baseball, just the way it should be! I grabbed Ruiz in one NL-Only league, I hope the Braves play him over Adonis even when latter returns, I think Ruiz is the future and Adonis is the prospblock

    You answered my question without even knowing it. I was wondering whether I should be dropping Rosario for Barretto, I see no Barretto in this buy/sell. (Would you own Barretto over Rhys Hoskins? or stash all 3 in a deep bench 12 teamer)

    One more question, the bottom of my bats are: Souza, Phillips, Kepler

    Adam Frazier worth grabbing over any of them?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Frazier over Phillips

      Rhys over Barreto but don’t see either making a difference this year

    • OaktownSteve says:
      (link)

      @Chris R:

      Topically, Lowrie is keeping Barretto down. I think they’ll try to move Lowrie if they can but it won’t be until much closer to the deadline. Plus Pinder can play there. Log jam. Barretto will be up at some point this year but I would be surprised if it was early enough to be of much value in redraft unless Lowrie gets hurt. Long term he seems like a better fantasy prospect that Rosario, at least as Ralph broke down Rosario yesterday.

      • J-FOH says:

    while mancini has been much better at OBP, and still has more RBI’s than renfroe for the year, his runs are sick ugly (10). which of mancini/valencia/renfroe, or could turn this into another SP (it would be #9 and options are turrible)

      Renfroe

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Grey: in fact mancini’s runs are worse than freeman’s last year 1st half RBI’s. mancini has AT LEAST 7 HR, so the people hitting behind him are truly awful. renfroe’s counting stats per at bat are much much worse overall than mancini’s even with this being the case. mancini’s runs + RBI’s per at bat at a very healthy 30% or so, renfroe’s 22%, not an argument for either, just that counting stats are really crazy luck based (that and SD isn’t good for runs).

    I want to start Glasnow but that start in Cinnci in April ruined my whip and era for 2 weeks.

    Quick story that I’m curious for your take on. 10 Team Roto. We have an owner who lost his mind. Our defending champ is deficient in steals and saves. The Mad King owner sent Robertson for Urias..pre Urias blow up but we all saw it coming. A week later same owner drops Villar and the defending champ picks him up. No collusion but a horrible turn of events. Texts are flying but everything seemed somewhat calm UNTIL Villar steals three bases on Tuesday night. All hell brakes loose through email, guys taking shots at education levels, careers, wives appearance etc.. you name. This league has been around since 1998 with 8 of the same 10 members. We’ve all calmed and seem to be ok but this nearly broke up 20+ years of friendship. What do we do with the Mad owner? No invite back?? The defending champ will most likely gain 6-8 points from steals and saves so this will have a huge impact.
    Thanks

    Also hoarding pitchers, Cueto Tanaka Ray Severino Hendricks Wacha Maeda Nola (And Hamels on DL!), probably gotta let one go of one of those later guys at some point, which one though?

    Well – the sell column today nailed it for this Sawx fan and I moved the Giant for the munchkin Altuve (total trade being Judge/Duffy/Neris for Altuve/Oh) – hurt just a bit to have a Yankee next to Betts and Benini.
    MI is now LeMahieu, Altuve, Correa
    pitching is now: Kershaw, Scherzer, Darvish, JRoss and a shit load of handcuffs turning closer (Betances, Reed, Knebel, glover, Rivero

    Excellent work as usual good sir!

    So in a 10 Team H2H, I am in first place with a good offense and still own Marte. Thought I would drop him, as this is a heavy SP streaming league, but we only get 4 adds a week so I have been able to rotate a streamer effectively and still hold him without trying too hard. My only offensive add has been Conforto (Ha!).

    I have been tempted to swap Marte for a prospect, either Rosario or Torres, as MI has been my weakest area thus far. My offense:

    C-Salvador
    1-Votto
    2-Odor
    SS-Gyorko
    3-Longoria
    OF-Conforto
    OF-Desmond
    OF-Khrush
    Ut-Ozuna
    Ut-C Santana

    Bench-Addison
    DL-Yoenis
    SUSP-Marte

    We don’t have any NA or SUSP slots. Addy has been my bench bat generally, or Odor, since Gyorko can play anywhere. Yoenis will come back soon making it hard to hold Marte or one of the youngens. Thoughts? Is Marte worth it at all, seeing as I am in good shape at this point? Are we anywhere near dropping Odor or Addy in a 10 teamer? Also get to keep 2, so the young SS might help there, but Conforto is nearly a lock for that and can keep Desmond (9) or Odor (8) next year.

    Thanks in advance boss, have a great holiday weekend!

    Need to pick up a bat with so many struggling “Studs”, I’m looking at you Odor, Myers, Springer, and Russell; Need to lose a SP, who is the drop… Maeda or Berrios? My other SP’s are Mc”Colors”; Carrasco, Darvish and G. Cole..

    How much longer are you staying the course on Subtracterson Russell or is he droppable in 5×5 10-team mixed Roto’s. Other options are Notorious DIDI, Swansong, Anderson and Chris Taylor..

    Thanks G!

    5×5 roto, 10tm. I finally got over the hump and into first, thanks to razzball. Esp these write ups.
    1. Schoop for Frazier? Frazier struggling but I could use a little power if he gets outta his slump.
    2. I have Braun, DL mvp, should I try to move for a solid SP? Not sure on his value and like I said I’m in first so I could just play him when healthy, I’m lacking a little in the wins category but smashing in k’s, just a matter of time for the wins I hope.
    3. Im 13 bags ahead in SB so trying to move hamilton, as I have Xander, Goldy, trea, and Gardner with 5+bags. If I move hamilton what tier of sp’s should I target? A guy has degrom, samardiza, a. Wood to name a few I like. Thanks again for all the help!

      1. Frazier 2. Hard to move a guy that’s on the DL, maybe buy low on Cueto? Not great tho 3. At least #2, go deGrom, settle for Wood

        @Grey: he is abtting almost .300 and has 50 steal potential. HE hasnt tried many steal attempts but if he does start it could be worth a utility or outfield spot. HE is worth a bench spot for when he steal 20 bags in 20 days. Your going to want him when that happens. I mean I cant believe grey isnt saying hold on Delino to everyone right now.
        Hamilton is batting .265 Delini is batting .295 so give a little take a little and deshizz is actually playing just as well as Hamilton. Delino has half the atbats and half the steals but with a batting average at .295.

    I hear you on selling judge as the best hitter in baseball, but I wouldn’t sell him if I weren’t getting back top 20 value. I don’t really know who I’d trade him for that anyone else would give up for him, if that makes sense. I don’t know if people are ready to trade consensus top 20 players for judge. Maybe tho

    With judges power and Yankee Stadium, Judge could have a huge HR/FB %. Not 42% but somthing silly high.

    I have conforto also. Conforto has a 34.2% HR/FB rate and a .393 BABIP.

    Why sell judge and not conforto?

    Broxton
    Odubel

    **Fowler and Cain can’t be kept. The rest are keeper eligible though Margot and Broxton will cost a bit more than the others.

    @Grey: 10 teams, 26 players per team, 4 bench spots. Pretty deep and dynasty, but more dynasty than deep. If Margot represents major long term upside as a keeper who gets a contract at the end of this year then maybe Jef has a point. Otherwise I think margot is the move. Only question is whether Odubel is the drop because he’s been horrible. What do you think?

    One of my earlier posts was unclear so will rephrase. Sorry.

    I am interested in acquiring Cole and Robertson. I like Robertson’s upside since he might be moved (traded) to a contender. He only has five saves so I think he is an easier RP to obtain. I like Cole cuz I think he has been unlucky. If you agree with this logic so far, I am trying to determine how to make this happen quickly. Here is my team:

    Realmuto
    Rizzo, Lamb, Seager
    Harrison, Owings, Russell
    Conforto, DeShizz, Max, Holliday, Dahl, Zobrist , Schebler (crappy unit I know)
    Pujols (utl)
    DL: Freeman
    Kershaw, Verlander, Quintana, Severino, Nova, Odorizzi
    Britton, Melancon, Neris

    Are these fair enough?

    1. Robertson and Cole for Verlander
    2. Robertson and Cole for Quintana and one of my OFs not named Conforto
    3. Robertson and Cole for Quintana and Odorizzi

    While typing this a guy sent me an offer of Holland for Verlander. Would you counter with another SP? Or should I just hold on all these.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      1. If you can get Robertson and Cole for a pitcher that looks awful, then you do it 2. Same as 1 3. These aren’t close

    I have Story on the D/L. If I activate him, I have several options.
    1. Drop either Hernandez, Turner, or Segura.
    2.I also have the option of moving Turner to the OF and dropping one of my OF’s which consist of Harper, Springer, Duvall, Conforto, or Dickerson.
    3. I currently have Reynolds at DH and HanRam on my bench. so I could drop one of those put Story at utility.
    Or option 4 I could just keep Story on the D/L and ride it out for awhile to see how he does. What do you suggest? Thanks !!!!!

            @Grey: Thanks guys. My concern was if I brought this up to the guy in my league, would it be considered a joke of an offer. Unfortunately some of the guys in my league are still concerned with pre-season ranks and draft positions even though its almost June.

    Countered Quintana for Starlin Castro.
    Declined.

    Not sure if I’m ready to part w Vargas yet. Only 2B I have at the moment is Odor who I am waiting on. For the time being though.
    He wants an SP. Mine are as follows:
    Kluber
    Carrasco
    Vargas
    Shark
    Eduardo Rodriguez
    Holland
    Quintana
    Hellickson

    Was also about to buy high on Judge before reading this, HA.

    guessing parker over hernandez (feels like i’ve played this game before, and lost when i didn’t pick norris, of course this seems much more short term than that time)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah

  118. Sinkhole Demayo says:
    (link)

    sounds like the serial killer is out (clevinger) when the rave man (kluber) gets back. in AL only with this: hahn (don’t quite think i can just drop him yet, options are quite bad), clevinger, quintana, duffy, shoemaker, salazar, gausman, morton, skaggs in DL slot. QS over wins. depthcharts shows clevinger as out, SON doesn’t yet. hold in case kluber has a set back or drop for
    asher (sounds like he stole ubaldo’s job, but isn’t streched out yet)
    mejia (today and SON likes it)
    fister (SON is putting him in for the 30th, but other spots have d.wright)
    cotton (today, barely a negative on SON, not as liked as mejia though)
    c.green (NYY’s version of peacock, no chance at QS till injury)
    peacock (HOU’s version of c.green)

    of course it’s possible clevinger keeps this spot and tomlin is dumped.

    • Sinkhole Demayo says:
      (link)

      @Sinkhole Demayo: if clevinger is a hold, drop hahn for any of those? h2h league and i’m a top 3 team, so possible i could wait if hahn isn’t a long term out issue.

      • Sinkhole Demayo says:
        (link)

So needed another starter. Current Outfield and Util: Harper, Bryant, Benintendi, Polanco, Happ, Broxton. I have Bregman and Haniger on my bench to replace Polanco.

    I need your advice on this trade offer. I proposed first but it’s came down to this. It’s a 12 team roto, OPS, weekly, keep all dynasty and I need saves and HR.
    My Margot, Vogt, and either Duffy or McCullers for his
    Jup, Wieters and R. Ozuna.
    I know you don’t like trading for closers but 10 extra saves right now and I would gain 6pts and I am 9 out. About the same for HR’s.
    I still have Kluber, Hendricks, Salazar, Nova,Morton, Folty, D. Norris and one of the above.
    What do think? Enjoy the Holiday.

      5.66 innings, 3 ER, 5 K’s, whip of .88 is much better than his bad games.

          @William Hung: got lucky in AL only with this one. dropped clevinger, now just gotta hope CLE doesn’t reverse course and remove tomlin instead, as clevinger is possibly better than my other options while i hold hahn in active slot (he’s far too good to drop IF he’s out shortish time)

            @Grey: oh shit, knew i should’ve waited to drop clevinger, now my salazar is getting screwed and somebody else will waiver clevinger probably. not that i want clevinger more than peacock, but i might’ve been best served by dropping one of skaggs or hahn and keeping clevinger.

  153. GrassyKnollRedding says:

    Salazar is maddening to watch. It was clear from the first pitch he just didn’t have it today. Bad enough he’s walking people as usual. But in a game when he’s walking everyone and battling to throw strikes, it drives me crazy to watch him turn and stare at the runner on second base–when the bases are loaded–before every single pitch he throws to the plate. What’s he gonna do? Pick off the runner? Hold the runner? THE BASES ARE LOADED. Concentrate on the batter!

    • peacecoast aka the lead greysciple says:
      (link)

      @GrassyKnollRedding: Ya he sucks to watch. Real painful. I am thinking I need to dump this chump, maybe trade him. That is the problem with watching games it gives you a visceral feeling about players which you don’t get when you just look at their final line. Throw some GD strikes for fuck’s sake.

    In a 12 teamer, H2H league with a solid offense but pitching has been very shaky. I have Kershaw, Verlander, Cole, Quintana, Nova and Severino. Not a big trade league. Trying to be patient given these names and the fact that it is a three week tourney in essence in August….but I am in the middle of the pack due to pitching. Wire has MCCarthy, Odorizzi, Cobb, Trigg.
    1. Should have be contemplating dropping a guy like Quintana?
    2. When I tried to trade him, the best offer was a reliever (Robertson or Herrera).
    Frustrated to see him, Cole and Verlander get torched this week.

      These waiver guys are streamers, so are your DL’d SPs and Guerra

    Brandon Maurer is back closing for the Padres? You’d think they could have stuck with Hand at least until he blew one save.

    who’s more likely tonight to get at least 1 hit and with upside for 3 runs, brocktune or n.walker? TRON says brocktune is best. also upside for 5 steals (hahah)

    somehow from lucky scheduling luck this team just keeps winning in a 12 man league, but with all these underperformances/injuries (thank god for lamb and rizzo lately) i’m guessing this doesn’t continue forever. 12 team with OBP over AVG, hits, total bases added. only 5 moves per week and until i have 4 closers it’s never a bad idea to keep one of those for that (4 max RP slots, although COULD move norris to SP spot, so 5)
    C hedges
    1B rizzo
    2B treat urner
    SS story (doing well enough since back)
    3B lamb
    OF (3) c-sant/d.peralta/reddick
    util (2) hernan/polanco
    BN franco/walker/braun/mancini
    NA brinson
    SP carrasco/carmart/nova/quintana/folty/sabathia/straily/chavez/t.anderson/paxton
    RP feliz/norris/hand/osuna
    DL bedrosian/rodon

    1. can’t check SON now (i emailed rudy), but if i remember right chavez/folty have somewhat ok matchups up next, not so much t.anderson/sabathia (but both of these latter have been good lately, not so much folty/chavez). if best options are lamet (i know SON didn’t hate it), m.perez (way better than SON says for about 4 in a row), j.garcia (really good for 5 out of last 7 and 2 in a row), perdomo (at home next), nolasco (SON always loves him), norris (@ KC next), tomlin (@ KC next), bolsinger/biagini
    who are my first 2 SP to drop. anderson might be good enough to hold for road games it’s looking like (next up isn’t road). j.garcia’s possibly safe boringness might be good to have.

    2. ideally i wouldn’t have 4 BN bats (albeit 3 right now from braun on DL), but due to having all these platooners or semi-platooners (reddick/peralta/lamb/walker). guessing that SP list makes this possibly optimal owning 3 BN bats at current time. drop mancini or reddick for any of these (TRON 7 day also out currently): souza/domingo/leury?

    3. now that c-sant has OF he doesn’t clog my 2 utils, such that i could drop franco for one of moreland/to-jo, this sound doable at this point. with that franco has done i’m sure i could probably get him back later if he woke up. with braun out i doubt hernan gets days off such that a lefty lamb day would leave me with no 3B.

      1. Folty, Chavez 2. Mancini, Souza 3. Hold

  196. JC says:

    1. Between Domingo and Marwin, who do you think gets the most consistent playing time moving forward? With Hernan and possibly Brinson coming up, I was concerned that a major time share would be underway in Milwaukee . …especially if Braun comes back someday :-). But Houston loves sitting guys as well. I had Reddick earlier and it was tough.

    2. Tomas and Holliday out there on the wire….but Ks are a category that I do pretty well in and those two can whiff 30% of the time. But their PT seems more assured barring injury. Ugh. Do you rate either of these guys ahead of options in #1.?

    Lastly, have you had a worst series of questions today? Brutal by me but too much too edit LOL

      @JC: red dick doesn’t start vs lefties.

    • Mrs. Featherbottom says:

      @JC:1. I don’t see Domingo losing bats to Brinson – he has pedigree that the Brewers traded for – I see a much higher ceiling out of him than Marwin.
      2. I’m interested in Grey’s take on this one too.

      @JC:
      To, Too, Two….pick one.

    • The Great Knoche says:

      @JC: Domingo, I dont see Brewers bringing Brinson into fold unless they fall out of it. And if they do I would guess Braun gets traded so should still be good.

    AL only, QS over wins. now with hahn/morton/skaggs (and with cargo 2 and miller in DL slots only room for one SP in a DL slot) but was able to nab peacock, albeit dropping clevinger just too early. gotta assume holding at least one of those 3 in BN slot is best (unless info indicates somebody is out a long time), but should i stream or own somebody else in one slot, dropping the worst of those 3.
    1. who’s the worst stash?
    2. my guess is clevinger/mejia/bolsinger are best adds (clevinger will probably be waivered by somebody else) in that order. SON liked bolsinger more than mejia, but mejia has been better. buck farmer (if he suddenly got a job and didn’t suck like he just got doing once) is also out there.

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: i also have salazar, but gotta assume he’s too upsidey to drop

    Rest of year.. $10Jay, Williamson $1, or Cardinals Peralta. $3 nL only 5×5 keeper
    i lose Williamson and Peralta if I don’t activate them.
    I can also lose LeBlanc who has given me 2 Wins and a save since I picked him up.

    Yo dawg
    Hope you had a sweet weekend. I planted some Arugula and tomatoes, and cooked a pork shoulder in the slow cooker – holy shit, thats delicious. Had no idea.
    Anyways, in a redraft, ROS: Clevinger, Peacock, Joe Ross?
    I’m leaning the alphabetical order above, but what do you think?
    Also, Peralta, Hayward, Tomas ROS?
