We go over Adam Jones later on the podcast.  Kidding, no one gives two effs about Adam Jones.  I mean, I’m sure he’s a pleasant enough guy.  I don’t mean no one gives two effs like a person from Boston before they all became magically woke this past weekend.  I’d let Adam Jones date my daughter, if I had a daughter.  Shoot, he can date my mom if he wants; I got one of those.  I just want Adam Jones in my family!  *snaps fingers*  They’re creepy and they’re kooky, all together ooky; The Adam Jones Family.  Nah, it isn’t about him on why no one gives two effs about him, it’s because of how boring he is for fantasy.  Not bad boring, just boring boring.  Don’t put words in my mouth.  Shut up, Random Italicized Voice.  Yesterday, he went 4-for-4, 3 runs and his 23rd and 24th homers, hitting .281, and had zero hits the game before, and will likely have zero hits today because he needs to level out yesterday’s wonderful with a strong helping of boring.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Welington Castillo – 1-for-4 and his 13th homer.  Where’s the boeuf?!  By the way, I could wake from a six-month coma and know that old lady’s name is Clara Peller.  I can never get rid of that memory, and she’s been dead for 30 years!  I wonder if that’s what it’s like for Ken Jennings, but with everything.

Jonathan Schoop – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 27th homer, hitting .302.  He will end with 32 homers and a .295-ish average and all the runs and RBIs that goes with that.  Yet — again with some stank — YET! I get the sense he’s going to be underrated still next year.  He’s an underrated Cano.

Boog Powell – 1-for-1 and his 1st homer.  Yesterday, I was cyclops’ing him with a monocle, because of a three-hit game on Sunday, and now I’m leaning schmotato.

Steven Matz – Hit the DL with what Terry Collins called “arm trouble.”  The Mets don’t have a medical staff, they have a brochure they found at a doctor’s office.  A school nurse gives a more detailed account of an injury in note form when they send someone home from school.  Arm trouble is like Robert Wagner telling Christopher Walken that Natalie Wood had ‘swimming trouble.’  The NY Daily News later said Matz has an arthritic elbow, and received a shot.  Only they said it with the headline, “Matz’s Elbow Is Like Anthony Weiner’s Elbow Only Less Putzy.”  Then Newsday came along and said, it’s a nerve issue, he needs season-ending elbow surgery.  They said it with the headline, “Anthony Weiner, Like Matz, Has Got Some Nerve, What A Putz.”

Jeurys Familia – Could return this weekend.  Take it from a guy who has Ramos and Familia, I’m not dropping Ramos until I see Familia get a save or two, and I don’t want to carry both of them either.

Robert Gsellman – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 5.65.  Putting aside the attitude we’ve heard Gsellman has, he went out and pitched well with Matz’s elbow, Harvey’s UCL and Thor’s shoulder.  Mets have one arm, and now it’s yours, Gsellman!

Michael Conforto – 2-for-4 and his 27th homer.  The Mets are like a 162-game eclipse.  They’re standing in front of the Conforto, blocking his sunshine.

Yasmany Tomas – Will have season-ending core muscle surgery.  Wow, this guy didn’t just crap the bed, he rolled around in the crap and shoved his groin into it.  You are a “Paprika Holepuncher.”

A.J. Pollock – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .270.  He must’ve of heard people in the comments yesterday reaching their breaking point about him, and asking to drop or bench him.  Y’all reverse jinxed the shizz out of him!

Taijuan Walker – 5 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks in Metco, ERA at 3.66.  The Mets are fielding a lineup that doesn’t look good, and appears to care about as much as Gsellman.

Clayton Kershaw – Yesterday, he looked like his old self at a simulated game.  He struck out 12 mimes and simulated one triple play.

Cody Bellinger – Out through Tuesday.  Since the Dodgers clinched their division in May and don’t care about your H2H playoffs, they don’t need to rush him back.

Curtis Granderson – 2-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 21st homer, and third homer in four games, across two different teams.  Who are you, Joel Youngblood?  You don’t look like Joel Youngblood, but if you say you’re Joel Youngblood, so be it.  Obviously while Grandy is swinging a hot bat he should be owned.

Yasiel Puig – 2-for-5 and his 22nd homer.  When Puig lets one fly!

Alex Wood – 6 IP, 3 ER– Oh, it doesn’t matter.  He’s hurt again, and now it’s late enough in the year that the Dodgers may make Wood their sixth man until the playoffs.  Wood’s velocity has been down in the 2nd half, and the injury is a joint flare-up — burn it if you got it! — that knocked him out for a few weeks earlier this year.  I’d try to hold him for now, but this is not headed to a good place.

Gerrit Cole – 6 1/3 IP, 5 ER, 10 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.16.  Man, he makes it tough to like him.  He’s like the opposite of the mafia.  Every time he pulls me in, I want out.

Josh Harrison – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer, and 2nd homer in the last four games, and, honestly, seriously, interjectingly, he should prolly just be owned.  I mean, I wouldn’t want to, but he should be.

Tim Melville – 3 1/3 IP, 5 ER, in his first start.  Fun fact!  Tim Melville wrote, “Nobody Thinks I’m Dick,” a story about a whale of a problem being taken serious as a major league pitcher.

Jorge Polanco – 2-for-7, 3 runs, 6 RBIs and his 4th and 5th homer.  Well, he’s no Gregory Polanco.  For this year, he’s been better.  Viva Jorgory Polanco!

Byron Buxton –  3-for-8, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer.  Ralph, Halp and I(alph) discuss Buxton on the podcast today, and whether or not this breakout is real or just last year part deux.

Nicky Delmonico – 1-for-6, 3 runs, and a slam (6) and legs (2).  He’s been a hot schmotato since hundreds had small faces.

Carlos Rodon – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.88.  Ugh, can I draft Rodon for 2018 already?  He’s making me horny!

Jose Abreu – 2-for-8, 2 runs and his 25th homer.  Abreu is one big trust fall.  He never gets crazy hot, so you don’t know he’s going to be worth owning all year, but, you get to September, and he’s on usual pace of 30 HRs, .290, 100 RBIs.  Y’boring, but y’solid.

Yolmer Sanchez – 1-for-6, 4 RBIs and his 6th homer.  Yolmer reminds me of Khmer Rouge, which sounds like a makeup line, and it was led by Pol Pot, which sounds like Polish noodle joint.  “Hey, Courtney put on your Khmer Rouge and go serve those servicemen some broken up pierogis.”

Juan Minaya – 1 IP, 0 ER and his 3rd save.  He’s running away with the White Sox closer job, which is hilarious.  Not funny hilarious, but “Wow, you’re so sad” hilarious.

Joey Gallo – Suffered a nasal fracture and is showing concussion symptoms after his collision with Matt Bush.  Head first into Bush hasn’t gone this poorly since Banky’s flashback in Chasing Amy.

Delino DeShields – 0-for-4, 2 runs and his 25th steal, and third steal in two games, hitting .281.  With Gallo out for at least a week, DeShields has some sweet SAGNOF in his gams.

Tyler Skaggs – 5 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.96.  Not exactly a case of FIPlash, but five baserunners doesn’t completely compute into four earned either.  Guess what I’m saying is hopefully this two-start week doesn’t turn out completely awful.

Chris Stratton – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 1 K, ERA at 3.98.  Two straight solid starts and now I have to look him up and– *looks at his player page*  Yikes.  No thank you, but happy birthday!

David Price – Played catch yesterday.  Has been shut down due to soreness about what Eck said.

Hanley Ramirez – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 19th homer.  Guess how many RBIs he has.  I’ll lay it out for you, he has 19 homers in the middle of the Red Sox lineup, and Andrew Benintendi (2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 18th homer) has 70 RBIs.  Benintendi has been hitting above Hanley for most of the year, so prolly less RBIs, right?  Hanley has 48 RBIs.  Haha, WUT.

Eduardo Rodriguez – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, 1 home run allowed, and no win, ERA at 4.01.  Stream-o-Nator predicted a line for Ed-Rod of:  5 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 5 Ks, 8 baserunners, one home run allowed and no win.  The extra third of an inning and two more baserunners though?  What a rip!  Okay, small pitch.  Rudy puts a ton of time into our fantasy football projections, and they are now available for subscription.  Wanna support Razzball?  That’s a great way.  Thank you.

Mike Clevinger – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 3.97.  Hmm, maybe it wasn’t a good idea to bring Clevinger in for three relief innings a few days ago.  No one could’ve predicted that.

Andrew Miller – Was just activated from the DL and sounds headed back to the DL with the same patella tendinitis.  This is a knee injury, not the Patella I should’ve went to med school with.

Ozzie Albies – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs, hitting .224.  Rudy texted me yesterday, “Right now, it’s Albers vs. Albies.  If called by NESN, we’d all be wondering why a bunch of trees was pitching to a shitty roast beef sandwich.”

Mike Foltynewicz – 5 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.95.  Legit, there’s two starters with ERAs under 4.50 in the majors.  Hayzeus Cristo!

James Paxton – Will play catch on Wednesday.  C’mon, Paxton, too much planning can take out the spontaneity.  Just grab a ball and ask someone if they wanna have a catch.

Felix Hernandez – Will resume throwing in the next two days.  If there are two more days, that eclipse felt like it was portending some serious apocalyptic scenarios.  That reminds me of a Yankees’ clubhouse eclipse story I heard back in 1992.  Don Mattingly said, “This is the most amazing eclipse I’ve seen,” followed by, “Oh, my bad,” when he realized he was standing behind Roberto Kelly and he was absorbing all the sun’s rays.

    I was curious as soon as I heard about Matz’s elbow how you’d approach it: you did not disappoint.
    Little Nicky gave me some goodies. Too bad my team as a whole went 3-26 yesterday. Luckily one of the other two was Schoop’s dinger. Three hits and two homers–I guess I’ll take it and smile.

    Grey!

    Fab write-up!

    a. Going into a meeting in 2 minutes! Ga!

    b. John Rambo Quote of the day for August 22

    Sarah Miller: ‘-You have family back home?’

    Rambo: ‘-Father maybe. l don´t know.’

    Sarah Miller: ‘Aren’t you curious to see how things might’ve changed back home?’

    Rambo: ‘Got to have a reason for that. -What do you do stateside?’

    Sarah Miller: ‘-l teach. Sixth grade.’

    [Rambo looks at Sarah Miller, sizing her up with a wry smile.]

    Sarah Miller: ‘What?’

    Rambo: ‘Now l know why you ask so many questions.’

    [Michael Burnett, not happy how his fiancee is getting chatted up by Rambo, makes a move towards Rambo.]

    Michael Burnett: ‘-Any idea how much longer?’

    Rambo: ‘-Yeah, just a few more hours.’

    Michael Burnett: ‘Maybe we should give the man his space. We should go over the schedule, okay?’

    Sarah Miller: ‘Okay.’

    Sarah Miller (to Rambo): ‘We’re engaged. He’s a good man.’

    Rambo: ‘That’s good.’

    Sarah Miller: ‘l know you think you live alone out here, but there’s always something pushing you.’

    [Just after dusk, there’s some noise and some people singing or chanting.]

    Michael Burnett: ‘-What is it? Who are they?’

    Rambo: ‘-Burmese pirates.’

    [Ruh-Roh….and no spoiler alert to boot! Gotta come back tomorrow I guess.]

    Cheers,
    Ante

      @Ante GALIC: A. At 12:50 AM? What kind of meeting is that?! B. Nice!

      • Ante GALIC says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Grey!!!

        a. 12h50 AM!!!Lol!!! It was 08h50 here, so the meeting was for like 09h00 or something here.

        b. Hit 7 HRs with 20 RBIs, 14 runs and 2 SBs last night – Jones, NickyD, Polanco etc., etc. on a short night you’d think that’d be enough for something….however, all that was offset by Clevinger’s clever outing. He walked Han-Ram on four pitches after he got the lead back at 3-2 with 2 outs and a man on 1B. My question is why? I’m sure it came from the dugout to pitch carefully to him and I guess the HR was the answer if you don’t….Ah, man.

        c. I signed up everyone I could who was involved in the second game of that double header especially facing Carson Fulmer. The 88-mph splitter or hanging fastball or not sure what looked tasty and Polanco crushed it!

        c. Tonight I’ve got Hoskins going for his double-header! Let’s hope for the HR cycle via the Ernie Banks special – solo, 2-run, 3-run and a grand salami over the two games of the double header, right?

        Cheers,
        Ante

      @Ace of Basement!: Not sure there is any ROS with these guys. whoever is hitting.

      You might look to see how many games they have left, home/away, etc. I think I heard that the White Sox have like 18 home games in the next three weeks or something crazy (that probably included the two they played yesterday.

      • Ace of Basement! says:

    I’m in 1st place… by a lot, but I’m thinking ahead to the upcoming playoffs. Is A. Wood worth hanging onto? Or should I just cut ties with him now and grab someone like P. Corbin? or Ryu? Or Berrios?

    Remember when you used to draft Adam Jones in the first round because he was so boring? He was putting up the same numbers those years as this year. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Latason: C’mon, Jones is not the same player he was in 2012 and 2013, and you know it

      @Latason: And it was 2nd round

    • Grey

      @Latason: And the top hitters barely hit 35 HRs then

      • Latason says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        He’s on pace to hit 281 with 31 hrs, 82 rbi, 89 runs, 175 hits, 792 ops in 152 games

        2 year average from 2012/2013: 286 with 32.5 hrs, 95 RBI, 101 runs , 186 hits, 825 ops in 161 games

        And he’s still got a hot streak left in the tank. And you had him as a first rounder.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          What about steals?

  12. Bob Sacamano says:
    (link)

    Cole was doing fine through 6, but Hurdle sent him out there at 91 pitches to walk and give up hits to the f’ing Dodgers instead of going to his bullpen – even as Cole continued to struggle, load up the bases, then serve up a meatball to Grandy. Friggin’ Hurdle.

    • Five-On-One says:
      (link)

      @Bob Sacamano: I had the same thought, but then, upon further reflection, any pitcher worth his salt should be able to pitch well at 91 pitches. Can’t fault the manager too much for sending him out there with ‘only’ 91 pitches. Hate the result as much as you do, brother, but the decision at the time wasn’t unreasonable. Firggin’ Cole.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Bob Sacamano: Agree with 5on1… I thought of that, bc/ who doesn’t love mocking C**nt, but if a guy can’t go out after 91 pitches, well…

    • Yankee My Wanky! says:
      (link)

      @Bob Sacamano: All true enough, but once Cole loaded said bases and obviously didn’t have much left, and with a hot lefty coming up, you make the move, number of pitches be damned. So it’s back to Friggin’ Hurdle!

      Who’s turn is it in this volley?

      Full disclosure, I had Wood (the SP) starting in this one, so I was ok with everything.

  13. Marc G. says:
    (link)

    Good stuff in the podcast, guys !
    I focused on the Hoskins and Buxton bits because they’re available in my league (so is Wil Myers who was dropped) and even if I need HRs and RBIs, I feel like it’s time to move away from Trumbo.

    Which of those three should I replace Trumbo with ?

    • Curious George Springer says:
      (link)

      @Marc G.: Hoskins of the need is homers

    How did the two players reach base in the Kershaw triple play?

    • Curious George Springer says:
      (link)

      @malamoney: passed ball on strike three followed by catcher’s interference on strike three.

      Next batter bunted foul with two strikes, but Kershaw dove from the mound and caught it on the fly, turned while still in the air and fired it to second base to complete the triple play.

    Grey, anyone that’s gonna get called up with September rosters that will be instant grabs? I’m not asking for clairvoyance just some most likely called up definite grabs. I’m pretty locked into a playoff spot and can look ahead somewhat. Standard 5×5 h2h 12 team league. Thanks as always.

    • Curious George Springer says:
      (link)

      @Lt:
      I’d look for Ryan McMahon (COL)
      JP Crawford (PHI)
      Maybe Brian Anderson (MIA), Chris Shaw (SFG)
      Minnesota will probably promote Zack Granite, but I don’t see him playing regularly with Buxton, Rosario, and Kepler in the OF there. I’m not big on rookie SPs, but the Twins also have a rickety rotation and Stephen Gonsalves has been great in AA and AAA this year.

      Jack Flaherty for STL is also a possibility, as is Brent Honeywell of TB

    Ahoy hoy Grey!

    Ma boy Adam Jones is back….!

    so… my pitching is basically a bunch of streamers and a ton of closers. Who to drop amongst these SP Faria, Godley, McCullers, Lackey, T Walker, K Hendricks for a hot Granderson if any?

    if Bauer kept, would you start him at home on Thursday vs Boston?

    Hi Grey! In a bizarre 9×9 roto AL only league, our trade deadline is 8/31. Im in 3rd about 15 points back and within striking distance in many offensive cats. See any big weaknesses on my squad that could tempt me to make a deal for the stretch run? I know my OF depth is poopooish. Or do I stay put and hope for the best? Thanks!

    What’s good Grey. With the playoffs starting next week, I have some questions for you about some hitters in an attempt to get things squared away. (1) Turner is scheduled to be back early next week when he’s eligible to come off the DL and either Margot or Mazara will need to go. Which one would you choose? (2) Been looking at team matchup’s and the most favorable for hitters are DET @ COL, LAD @ ARI, and ARI @ COL. Essentially Colorado is home all week, Arizona is home for 3 and then @ COL for 4, and then you can take a flyer on Detroit or Dodger players. That being said, Granderson and Peralta are both on waivers. I’m thinking both are better plays next week than Margot and Mazara. What says you? You da poop!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Slimcompoop: Yeah, Grandy and Peralta over Margot/Maz — I’m the poop!

    Han-Ram, like Thames, I dropped weeks ago in 12 team redrafts. Never looked back. Yet people get super excited to pick these guys up. Then they begin to sink in the standings and STILL hold these guys. I don’t get it, but it’s also why I love fantasy baseball. It’s too easy to make yourself appear to be smart.

    • Curious George Springer says:
      (link)

      @Huffin Gas: Thames has an .850 OPS with 2 HR and 2 SB over the last two weeks. Hard to imagine that he’s the anchor dragging people down.

      • Sinkhole Demayo says:
        (link)

        @Curious George Springer: he’s right about that last sentence it would seem.

        • Huffin Gas says:
          (link)

          @Sinkhole Demayo: You sure you don’t want to take another look at Thames bud?

      • Huffin Gas says:
        (link)

        @Curious George Springer: You’re going to play the small sample size game? Rethink your approach and try again. He’s a disposable bench bat in 12 team and under mixers. At the very LEAST, I’d rather use the spot to stream SPs, hitters (Cron, Parra in Coors).

        • Curious George Springer says:
          (link)

          @Huffin Gas: okay. For the season he has 27 homers and is a top 75 player. Is that sample too big?

          • Huffin Gas says:
            (link)

            @Curious George Springer: I think you are fully aware that I’m speaking of his value after his career month (April of 2017). What a glorious month it was but he’s never going to come close to that again. His value in 12 teamers outside of that month equals an ok bench bat at best. My overall point is, guys that hit .240 ish, hit 25 HRs when they aren’t having an unrepeatable career month (with low RBI totals to boot), and sit once or twice at week because of bad splits are a dime a dozen these days. He was dropable for other hot hitters weeks if not months ago. I didn’t even think this was that much of an argument.

            • Curious George Springer says:
              (link)

              @Huffin Gas: youbsaid he has been dragging teams down. I gave you his recent work, which you said was too small of a sample. Then I gave you his full season work, predicting correctly that you would label it as too large of a sample.

              #BloodandUrine

            • Curious George Springer says:
              (link)

              @Huffin Gas: I’m not arguing that he’s a precious irreplaceable stud. You dropped him and it’s clear you can’t handle even the idea that he’s provided any value at all to whoever added him because you’re so smart for dropping him.

              Guess what, maybe dropping him was a fine idea. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t been ownable for the last month or so. 4 homers and 2 SBs over a month plays in 12 teamers. You’re taking this extreme position and acting like it’s unreasonable to have a different opinion.

              • Huffin Gas says:
                (link)

                @Curious George Springer: I have an opinion. It’s not supreme. But I have one and I’ll defend it. Look, my offensive stats wouldn’t be as good had I not dropped him for other guys when I did. It worked for my team and it I think it could work for other teams, but I’ll relent. Body mass fantasy baseball leagues though- he’s ace.

          I doubt he’s a keeper, but I don’t know your league

    Salazar worth holding this late in the season? Ironically, the D/L is how i was able to acquire him.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Nah, drop him

    • Favio Vasquez says:
      (link)

      Thanks, Grey, also
      Who would you bench tonight, Devers or DelMonico?
      Btw, Hoskins just homered again, did you start him?

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        Delmonico… started him!

        • Favio Vasquez says:
          (link)

          Nice!!! I too had benched Hoskins for one of his hr’s so you werent alone bud. Ok, lets see how my stay is at Hotel “DeMonico” tonight. Ive got Buxton going to so lets see how long he stays hot. Any sleeper suggestions for replacing Salazar? Dude was on fire for me not including his last start.

            Not idea who’s available… Can grab Giolito to see if he looks good tonight, but you might have better guys available

            • Favio Vasquez says:
              (link)

              Giolito is intriguing, what about this package of available arms in my league;
              Berrios
              Anderson
              Taillon
              Happ
              Castillo
              McHugh
              Ugh, i feel like i just offered you the buffet leftovers from a wedding last weekend. Even the cake is dry…..

                None of these guys are bad in right matchups

                  Right on, great convo, talk to you soon. Thanks!!!

    Would you start Tanaka @ Detroit tonight?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sure

      • Does the Carpenter Match the Wong says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I guess I should have asked it this way. I have 5 remaining starts for my weekly match up. Salazar was one of them. I was not planning on throwing Tanaka, but now I might. My other option would be to pick up Weaver from STL. So the question is Tanaka @ Det (SON <6) or Weaver vs. SD (SON 16). I don't know anything about Weaver. He looks younger than Yelich.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Weaver

          • Does the Carpenter Match the Wong says:

            @Grey: Thanks! One more. Semien or T. Anderson ROS?

    Conforto day-to-day with some form of thumb issue?

    I’ve been stashing Cueto and McCullers on my DL, hoping to get something out of them in September. I only have 2 DL spots and now Salazar is on the DL. Which one of the 3 would you drop?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Salazar

  55. dhouse42 says:
    (link)

    (standard 5×4/12 team/roto/mixed league/redraft)

    Souza has been great for me but is slumping, would you drop him for any of these guys:

    Delmonico
    Jorge Polanco
    Spangenberg
    Thames
    CarGo

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d hold

    What you say Grey, got Odor @ LAA (nolasco) Devers @ CLE (Carrasco) and Miggy vs NYY (Tanaka) bench 1, still benching Miggy here?

      Yup

          @Daze:
          Have you heard if Luke Weaver is starting anytime this week
          or just bullpen

          • Grey

    2) Skaggs already started me off with an L and a 6.75 ERA after last night… would you drop him to stream Weaver tomorrow vs. SD (15.4) or hold him for his next home start vs. HOU (1.6) this week?

    (2) RP: Knebel, Ramos

  61. NoOneIsHome says:
    (link)

    I get 2 starts this week if I go with Tanaka (At Detroit & At Home versus Seattle) or would you go with either 1 start guys like Weaver (At Home versus San Diego) or Snell (At St. Louis)?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Tanaka

  62. Hanklongball says:
    (link)

    I did something to piss of the fantasy Gods, because four of my SPs are on the DL (Yu, Lester, Wood and Salazar). Since Harper is in the DL spot, I can’t stash anyone.

    Who do you recommend I cut bait with and who do I hold on to?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Cut Salazar

  63. joemorganhair says:

    There is heartbreak when real baseball and fantasy baseball collide. I’m a Marlins fan. I have Straily and Nola throwing for me today. After being tied 3-3 in the 6th I just wanted both pitchers to be taken out of the game. Sure enough Nola goes out for the 7th and gets rocked. Go Marlins?!?

    • Mike in Busan says:
      (link)

      @joemorganhair: yeah, also a Nola victim today. I can’t believe they kept him in after giving up the homer to Ichiro.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Ugh, I started Nola too, and that hurt

    Is Gregory Polanco coming back this year? Is he droppable for a Flaherty (need pitching help) who may start Saturday for Leake?

      Drop him

    man while not as bad as that 2 or so days back right when trout was hurt as far as SP injuries (back then was duffy/salazar/others) this 10 or so day period is even worse, i have all of these in at least 3 leagues each, faria/darvish/wood/cobb/paxton (slightly longer ago)/salazar. it’s really not good when pruitt and nolasco are having to be used in less than 16 team leagues (or even 16 team leagues really). am happy to stash flaherty everywhere right now though.

      Amed over Semien

  70. Well that was a quick break, anyhow, Gallo designated for DL7, I feel I shouldnt drop him. Nothing involving his “baseball” ability. Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      He has nasal fractures, he could be out for 2 weeks

      • From what Ive read they’re like, “yeah no big deal, DL7 just a formality”. Damn, didn’t know it could get that serious. Thanks again, I’m not gonna “wine” to Julio about not having anymore Gallo. I’m gonna miss his “vats” of power. Hopefully he can pull his AVG out of the “cellar” when he comes back. He sure does know how to “barrel” one up. OMG for days with this guy…………

    hey Grey, What do you think about chad kuhl for tonight”s match up against the dodgers with ryu pitching.. dodgers are without bellinger and had no spark last night even with hill tossing the game of his career.. would it be a gamble to have kuhl in my lineup with dodgers hoping to have explosive bats tonight after yesterdays heart breaker?
