Asdrubal Cabrera strains his back, and, no “Asdrubal Strains Back” is not a sequel to a sci-fi porn movie.  At this time of the year, any little thing can knock people for the remainder of the year.  To help you picture what I’m saying, imagine this is April and we’re talking about Morneau.  That’s how easily players can get knocked out.  This injury comes on a day where Asdrubal hit his 24th homer.  Even if Da ‘drubal doesn’t return, he gave you everything he had this year.  Drubal took ’11 to 11.  For next year, I’m pretty sure he’s going to be a tad overrated.  He never hit more than 10 homers in any professional.  He’s been consistent with power this year from month to month, but his HR/FB% soared away above anywhere it had ever been before.  He should still be able to get around 15 homers next year, but if you get a 15/15 season, you’re suddenly wondering if a sure-to-be-underrated Jimmy Rollins isn’t a safer way to go.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Billy Butler – Missed yesterday’s game with the flu.  Someone dump a Gatorade cooler of chicken soup over Butler’s head.

Yunel Escobar – To the DL with an elbow injury.  Bobby Cox just wishes he injured it on Kelly Johnson’s face.

Brett Cecil – 3 IP, 4 ER which was followed by Kyle Drabek’s 2 IP, 6 ER as unrealized potential met yet-to-be-unrealized potential.

Doug Fister – Will be pitching in relief of Scherzer on Wednesday rather than starting as the Tigers get ready for the playoffs.  If Fister is the relief, I don’t even want to know what Scherzer translates to.

Randall Delgado – 5 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 1 K.  Freakin’ Braves with all the sexy young pitching, huh?  Freakin’ Braves.  I love them.  Beachy, Minor, Delgado, Vizcaino, all of them.  Now I know how Bill James feels when looking at Chris Davis.  Shoot that poisoned arrow through my heart, Braves pitching staff minus Jurrjens, Lowe and anyone else I’m forgetting that I don’t like!

Alex Gonzalez – 2-for-3 with his 15th homer, then left with a foot injury.  Comes a bad time because he was putting the coals in the fire, which isn’t an expression but should be.

Jason Heyward – 1-for-3 with a steal.  5 for his last 10 with a homer while batting in the 8 hole.  Maybe he just needed to be in the 8 hole to be comfortable, or maybe he’s just really too good to be batting in the 8 hole.  Hmm, wonder which one it is.

Pablo Sandoval – Hasn’t been able to bat right-handed because of a shoulder injury and might have offseason surgery to correct the issue.  Or that’s a cover for Lap-Band.

Ben Zobrist – Returns to the lineup on Wednesday after taking time off for the birth of his daughter.  No word on how many positions Mrs. Zobrist utilized for the birth, but – based on her profession – I’m guessing missionary on the conception.

Wade Davis – 4 2/3 IP, 5 ER.  Too bad he doesn’t play for the Jays, he could’ve relieved Drabek with his potentially-yet-to-be-unrealized-potential-that-might-not-be-potential-anymore potential.

Manny Ramirez – It’s being reported he’s going to play in the Dominican Winter League.  He’s hoping to meet up with Miguel Tejada down there to reminisce about the salad days of the 90s.  Maybe even start up a band, Man-Ram and the B-12 with their lead single, “Just Give Me A Shot (Of Your Sweet Sweet Estrogen Therapy).”

Adam Dunn – 2-for-6 as he doubled his season hit total.  No, wait, he doubled twice.  Sorry, honest mistake.

Dylan Axelford – 4 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 3 Ks.  He was coming off a decent start vs. the Tigers but you shouldn’t have went anywhere near him for this start.  Though I can understand how you could get seduced by his conglomeration of cool names.

Bud Norris – Left his start with a sore shoulder.  He’s done for the year.  Or as they say in Spanish ‘ano completo.’

Kyle Blanks – Left the game with a right quad strain.  Seventeen men helped him off the field.

Jason Kipnis – 2-for-4 with a steal in the first game, and didn’t start the 2nd game.  He should’ve though because he’s seeing the ball well.  He’s hit in every game he’s started but three since August 1st.  (Sure, he’s missed about 20 games in there, but whatevs.)

Alex Liddi – His 2nd game in a row with a homer.  In broken English, he told reporters, “I drink your pizza!  I drink it up!”

Tom Milone – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 2 Ks.  Second start solid start for Milone.  He looks to be in the Slowey mold back before Slowey got screws put in his wrist and then put the screws to his fantasy owners.  Once upon a midnight dweawy, Slowey pondewed weak and weawy what could’ve been.  I still wouldn’t trust Milone if he gets one more start, but he’s now on the radar for deeper leagues in Twenty-Twelve.  Or as I’m gonna call it twelve past twenty.

Ross Detwiler – 7 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 3 Ks.  Phils are in serious coast mode.

Danny Espinosa – 3-for-4 with his 20th homer.  You’re probably thinking to yourself, I don’t have the profiteroles to go with the cannoli to like Espinosa again next year.  You, sir, don’t know my pastry prowess.

Erik Bedard – 2 2/3 IP, 1 ER (3 unearned).  Of course the Sawx want to get to the playoffs, but has anyone seen their last four starters?  Wakefield, Weiland, Lackey, Bedard… So, they gonna pitch Lester and Beckett on one day rest throughout the playoffs?

Clay Buchholz – Threw a simulated game.  Unfortunately, he gave up 7 runs, but the 1976 Cincinnati Reds are a tough Strat-o-Matic matchup.  Damn you, George Foster!

    Re: ‘Drubal, asked this late last night: In H2H finals, have 2 moves left. Asdrubal is my SS. Tulo, who’s coming back today but probably won’t play every day, is available, as are Scutaro, Furcal and Gordon. Drop Asdrubal or Cruz (bench bat right now, but could be plugged in for Swisher in RF or Jennings in LF) for one of them?

    I also don’t have nearly as many starts left as my opponent, so I may want to save move(s) for SPs.

    Hey Grey,

    I’m back in the Championship again this year – many thanks for all of the help this year. However, I’m all tied up 4-4. Here’s a rundown of the score as of today (9/21):

    R: L 9-13
    HR: L 0-7
    RBI: L 5-12
    SB: T 0-0
    AVG: L .245 – .328

    W: W 2-0
    SV: T 1-1
    K: W 20-13
    ERA: W 2.66-7.71
    WHIP: W: 1.18-1.71

    I have Holliday and Cargo sitting out a lot of games. I also have Sister Fister who’s missing a start this week. I’m not sure how likely it is for me to win HRs, RBIs or even Runs. Here was my plan:

    Grab Maybin and try to snag steals and runs; grab three of the following:

    9-22: Humber v CLE, Capuano @ STL, Nieman @ NYY

    9-23: Porcello v BAL, Pomeranz @ HOU, Harang v LAD, Harrison v SEA, Chen @ CHI, Surkamp @ ARI

    9-24: Lohse v CHC, Danks v KC, Moscoso @ LA

    Problem is after the Maybin add, I’d only have three adds left. Plus, I’m not sure of the pitchers beyond Saturday-although it’s probably not anyone worth grabbing. Also, I had Farnsworth and dropped him for Peralta, who I dropped in the Semis for a SP. Saves look like they could be close enough to snag. Re-grab Peralta?

    I know this is a shit-ton to plop down in the comments, and I apologize to everyone else for taking up so much space. There’s just so many things to consider – I’m in need of guidance.

    Thank you!!

    My team:
    Bat: Wieters, Lind, K. Johnson, R. Zimmerman, Reyes, Braun, Hamilton, Willingham, Cargo, Rollins, BN: Holliday

    Pitch: Kershaw, Fister, Billingsley, Collmenter, Cueto, Wandy, D. Hudson, Saunders, Luebke, Soria and League.

    @toolagio: Ha!

    @stynyr: @stynyr: You only have 4 adds left and you’re asking about like 10 adds? Ha…Okay, grab Maybin and Peralta and hold until tonight.

    @Mike Smith: Probably

    @seank: Just outside the top 20, but potential to be top 10. Nice upside pick.

    Hope the stomach has recovered, Grey. Only had FP bad once before and it was a race to get on the toilette (I was in France) and off it to deal with, er, a double edged sword. Sorry, that’s vile, but seriously hope you’re doing better.

    This will be my final ask for help this year, but it’s a biggie. I’m going to stream many starters for this Sunday as I already have two of my regular starters scheduled that day and I’m close to my innings limit so may as well go way over it hoping for some good luck which may lead me to the title.

    I have placed them in order of palatability (sticking with the dicky tummy theme). Are any of them absolutely insane starts for a guy looking for W, ERA, WHIP and Ks aka the quadfecta?:

    Narveson vs Fla, Floyd vs KC, Pineiro vs Oak, Carmona vs Min. There is also Mendoza @ CWS but I’m thinking that one is for sure just begging to get blitzed.

    Sorry for the long post, but please have a think and let me know as this is a crunch-question for me and, with another 7 months til baseball ’12, I want to selfishly basque in Grey-assisted glory over the winter.

    Oh yeah, I don’t need a miracle as the ERA race is close so I don’t want to get lit. But I could do with wins that don’t hurt.

    @Eng: Thanks! Yeah, I was pretty bad. Closest we’ve come in 4 years to not getting a roundup. Mendoza is an insane start, rest could go either way.

    Off hand, do you happen to know any pitchers who are slated to pitch the last day of the regular season? My innings may keep me from winning and I’ll need to use the loophole on yahoo.

    Re: Fister –

    Either Scherzer or Fister will pitch Monday and the other Tuesday against Cleveland, and then they’ll pitch in the same order once the playoffs begin.
    (Yahoo! Sports)

    This is the worst double-whammy of all-time. I have both Scherzer and Fister, and now they’re both going to be worthless. I’d guess that they won’t throw more than 90 pitches in their starts next week. Damn you, AL Central for not being close enough to make Detroit play it straight!

    Where would the update be this year with out Doug Fister? A gift that keeps on giving.

    Re: starting McCarthy. Been pretty good lately, but might not count on him to get a win. Rangers kicking A’s ass. I will be one of the 75 in attendence tonight though and the A’s have a winning record this year whenever I take my 4 year old to the game.

    Enjoy the strat reference, even though I was an APBA guy. APBA is kind of like Betamax to strat-o-matics VHS. Dorky thought of the day.

    What the heck am I going to do with myself when baseball season ends?

    @Grey: @Calogero: Regarding Fister, was there some word a couple of weeks ago that I missed that Fister wouldn’t be starting anymore? ‘Cause I’ve been trying to figure out why he was dropped and why I was able to pick him up.

  26. Rob says:

    Already losing runs and sb’s handily this week, I’m thinking of taking Desmond Jennings out of my starting lineup, picking up Moustakas to start at 3rd, and moving Bautista to the OF, in hopes of winnings HRs/RBIs/AVG/OPS. Good idea?

  27. OaktownSteve says:
    (link)

    It’s funny but I am strangely not excited for Moneyball. I have this thing where it drives me crazy seeing actors who throw like girls (with apologies to the three girl readers) play fake baseball. I almost never enjoy baseball movies. In this case, I’m also pretty dorked out in the ways of the baseball dork, so I’m not too excited about seeing it packaged in a Brad Pitt dork-for-the-masses format.

    I’ll probably wait until it comes on Encore or one of the second rate extended cable movie channels.

    Ah, Shields. Even though you’ve been so good to me this year, you still find a way to roll it back to ’09.

    @Grey: And my David Robertson was nowhere amongst them.

    At least Jennings hit a dinger for me – though I don’t really need it in that league (the 8-team keeper).

    Sub-optimal day all round.

    @Shin-Soo Choo Choo: according to the yahoo Fister blurb,Fister is pitching in relief of Scherzer tonight,but will get a normal start on either monday or tuesday….unless something changed since that post.

  41. Steve says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Hah – I almost grabbed him yesterday too! But we only get 10 moves a week (I’ve used 4) and because this is the last ‘week’ those moves have to get me through til next Wednesday.

    @Oilcan Giuseppe: As a Scherzer owner, I can tell you that anyone pitching in relief of him has a pretty good shot at getting a fair amount of work in.

  42. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @Steve: Yeah, could see saving moves there.

  43. Oilcan Giuseppe says:
    (link)

    @Steve: yeah, I actually dropped Scherzer.I cant f**k around w/ that dude at this point.I was tempted to start Fister,but I own him in a points league where W’s weigh heavily and I figure he’ll be pitching down a few runs.

  44. Steve says:
    (link)

    @Oilcan Giuseppe: I’ve been sending mindwaves to Scherzer that I’ve actually benched him for this start, to see if that improves his performance.

  45. Bad Bob says:

    Made the final of my 12 team head to head Dynasty league but my team is really hurting right now. Tulo, Youk, CarGo, Holliday and now maybe Lawrie all out. I also have Choo injured and on my bench. Do I give up Choo and probably lose him to go get a hot bat for the final week and a bit?

    My other outfielders for next year are CarGo, Holliday, Justin Upton, Bruce, Victorino and Trout. Three OF’s and two UTIL spots so Choo may not even get in my starting lineup when healthy next season.

    Also any thoughts on Jacob Turner pitching against Bal tomorrow, worth a spot start in the final for me?

    Grey, I’m in the championship for my H2H points league and holding onto 1st in my Roto with 73 out of 100. And I’m an avid Razzball reader so it can’t be a coincidence!

    Lawrie’s (2B) injury means I have to burn one of my allotted 3 transactions on a position player rather than a h2h starting pitcher :(

    Try Kelly Johnson again?
    Will Mike Aviles get at bats?
    Are you still high on Omar Infante?
    Posh Beckham?
    Kipnis?

    1 pt for single, 1 pt RBI, 1 pt run, 2 points steal, 4 HR, yadda.

    Thanks! ‘nother marguerita coming your way from my winnings from nyphilsphan

    p.s. for H2H weekly we are loving the 10-day last week of the season. Takes some of the luck-factor away with nearly everyone having double starts. Is this a one-year thing or a permanent reg season change?

    I’m also wondering a strategery question. It’s an 8 Team H2H league, so there are tons of good waiver wire pitchers. It’s also a keeper where we do off season trades, so I’m not giving anyone up that could be kept. BUT, do I drop someone like D.Hudson or Beachy to add in the extra RP or spot starter?

    Also, would you keep any bench bats at all? I’ve got Espinosa and Aybar as my bench bats. Would you drop them for a closer, spot starter, and/or someone like Infante that can fill in at multiple spots in case someone has a day off?

    Man, I nearly dropped Dee Gordon about a week ago. Dude just can’t stop hitting.

    @Steve: OK Kemp – a dinger would be timely.

    @Steve: Yeah, like that.

    @Steve: can you get him to do that again, please?

    Just want to point this out. This is my opponent’s offensive line for the day in our championship game:

    18-49, 12 runs, 4 HRs, 8 RBI, 2 SBs, .367, 1.129 OBPS.

    I was leading 10-3 going into today. I’m now losing 11-2.

    @Wilsonian: Santos… Don’t drop Beachy or Hudson… I’d lose Aybar for a spot starter if he’s just sitting on your bench.

    @Steve: Wow, did you just call that Kemp homer?

    @Grey: Yup.

    In real time, he may have already hit it (I’m only following on FantasyCast) – but I had no other way of knowing that he had, so there’s that.

    I’ll try it again. Be good if Mota got blasted here. Or at least gave up the lead.

    Got another one in you, Kemp?
