The Pirates and Cardinals played a marathon game yesterday.  19 innings that saw 47 lineup changes, 16 different pitchers and 12,000 fans at Busch Stadium leaving simply because the beer cutoff was in the 7th inning.  “This is baseball sober?  Damn, I’d prefer a third divorce.”  Tim Kurkjian’s voice is cracking at the sheer craziness of the game.  Can you believe this game, fellas?!  They used more electricity to light the scoreboard than was generated in the entire Sudan all of last year?!  Andrew McCutchen saw a total of 42 pitches, that’s more pitches than Michael Pineda threw this year!?  Michael McKenry went 0-for-8 and caught all 19 innings, which means he crouched down more than Jon Rauch trying to look at me in the eye?!  Where’s my crack team of complementary voice-cracking interns to get me more trivia?!  Lost in the 19 inning game yesterday was the dazzling start Jaime Garcia had — 8 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners and 10 Ks.  I wasn’t a huge fan of his on Friday, but that was last week so whatevs.  In the last 6 weeks, Garcia could provide value if his shoulder is back at 100%, which from the looks of this start, it is.  I’d go ahead and grab him in all leagues.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:

Starling Marte – Lands on the DL with an oblique strain.  I once had an obelisk strain trying to figure out 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Johan Santana – The Mets are deciding whether or not to shut Johan down.  Ever since his no-hitter, it’s been all downhill and he’s really not ownable in most mixed leagues.  The morale of this story is the Mets can’t have anything nice, which is supported by Wikileaks released documents, showing top secret correspondences between Dwight Gooden and the Freemasons back in 1987.  Gooden sold thirty-five seasons of heartache for an eight ball of coke.  Dwight says he’d do it again, but next time he wouldn’t tell Keith Hernandez about his score.

David Wright – 2-for-5.  His post-All-Star break average is at .244 with 5 homers and 3 steals, and he hasn’t gone deep since July.  And here I thought he was a .350 hitter.  Oh, no, I didn’t think it.  Some of youse did.

Ryan Ludwick – 0-for-2 yesterday, but he homered twice on Saturday.  He now has 25 homers to Jay Bruce’s 25 homers and a .272 average to Bruce’s .255, but Bruce has 7 more RBIs. It could come down to the final weekend for this race that only I’m interested in.

Aroldis Chapman – 1 IP, o ER as he got his fifth win yesterday to lower his ERA to 1.35 to go with a 0.72 WHIP and 110 Ks in 60 innings.  Let’s take a moment to fully appreciate the year Aroldis is having on the field (off the field, shizz has been like something you’d get from Ziggy Sobotka).  On our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater, he’s in the top 5 for all pitchers this season.  Yes, not just relievers.  He’s also top ten for all players.  He’s been more valuable than Kershaw, F-Her, CarGo and Pujols, to name but a few.  Oh, and he has more Ks than Jered Weaver, you know the starter with 81 more innings.  110 Ks for Aroldis in 60 innings.  Even if you don’t understand K-rates and play fantasy more as a leisurely pastime just to annoy your loved ones, Aroldis has the best K-rate since 1900.  That’s the year nineteen hundred naught-naught when hitters used a broomstick and they’d swing because their clergyman told them it would help their cousin in the insane asylum lose “the devil’s cuckoo clock.”  In short (which is to say to belabor this point further), Aroldis is doing what has never been done before.

Michael Young – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 5 RBIs and his first homer in 88 games.  That’s a double snowman, which is appropriate because of how cold his power has been this year.  If you still own him in fantasy your team probably has a double snowman’s chance in H-E double hockey sticks.

David Murphy – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer, as he bats .306.  I’ve long been a fan of David Murphy, in the non-geisha way.  If he’s out there in your league, he’s hitting near .330 in August with 2 homers and the Rangers are headed home to face some weak pitchers.  Yes, please and thank you.

Elvis Andrus – 4-for-6 with one run.  Now is hitting .300 on the year with 19 steals.  Basically, however Hamilton’s year goes is the inverse of how much Andrus runs.  Great year from Hamilton, no steals for Elvis.

Chris Davis – 1-for-4 with his 2nd homer in as many games.  Pretty uneven season from Davis this year — Bill James, “How dare you!” — but every time Davis has hit a homer, he’s followed with at least one homer in the next game, and sometimes a homer for a few games after.  If you don’t have a corner infidel, Davis should be decent value for another couple of games.

Doug Fister – 3 2/3 IP, 7 ER vs. the Orioles.  Looks like Fister got the O face, and not in the good way.

Adam Dunn – Hit his 400th homer on Saturday.  More impressive, he’s trotted around the bases 400 times.

Jose Quintana – 7 IP, 2 ER, 13 baserunners, 5 Ks to lower his ERA to 2.76 and increase his WHIP to 1.17.  That’s in 104 1/3 innings so we’re not talking about that small of a sample size.  His Ks are still pedestrian but he’s worth taking a flyer on.  Related to nothing in particular, but I just got off the phone with my 85-year-old grandfather and this is a decent story.  He’s dating five women right now and he uses different names for all of them because he doesn’t want them to Google his real age.  Yes, I tried to explain to him that no 70-year-old woman is Googling anything let alone his age.  Anyway, he was out with one of them and they ran into one of his paisans and they kept calling him by his real name, Joe, but his date knows him as Nick.  So they get into the car and he’s driving her home, and she’s like, “Why did they call you Joe?”  And he says it’s his middle name, so she asks to see his driver’s license.  Well, that would blow his cover, so he says he doesn’t have a license because he has a bunch of DUIs.  Yes, my grandfather told her he has “a bunch of DUIs” rather than just tell her his real name.  Naturally, she tells him to pull over and call her a cab and she doesn’t want to see him anymore.  So, he ends the story with, “Eh, she was just a two anyway.”  That wasn’t him rating her beauty.  He’s dating five women and can’t remember their name so he numbers them.  The most unfortunate part of this story is the crazy doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Jeremy Guthrie – 7 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks after losing a no-hiter in the 7th inning.  Anyone who’s read Razzball for a minute (that’s an Urbandictionary minute, which is actually a long time) knows I used to love me some Guthrie.  We had a love affair back in 2008, and went our separate ways.  Occasionally writing each other…I congratulated him on signing a $8 million contract, he congratulated me on getting the site to crash less.  Looking at him now without the afterglow, I see a guy that has been good in the last three starts, but gets Fenway next time out so I’d avoid.

Kyle Kendrick – 8 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks.  “Damn, that’s a beautiful thing.”  That’s Lincecum noticing Kendrick’s 4.20 ERA.  Kendrick gets the Nats next time out and I’d avoid him in most mixed leagues, since I don’t trust him at all.

Jimmy Rollins – 0-for-5 and hitting around .180 in August.  Charlie Manuel said, “This team is playing like it’s two junebugs having sex with an audience of turkeys.”  No one knows what that means, but I’d look elsewhere if I owned Rollins.

Chad Billingsley – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks.  You know who was throwing Bills in this game?  The Stream-o-Nator after it was caught on Saturday in a theater with Fred Williard.  Stream-o-Nator, “I was doing research!”

Luis Cruz – 2-for-4 with a homer in his 2nd straight game and he’s hitting over .450 in the last week.  Well, if hot schmotatos don’t come from the oddest of places.  If your league’s deep like the mind of Minolta, I’d grab Cruz.

Michael Cuddyer – Back to the DL with an oblique strain.  Damn, haven’t seen a strain run through the majors this bad since the MLB decided to play a game in Mexico City.  Cuddyer will probably be out for three weeks, and is droppable in most leagues, unless you play in a league where oblique strains is a category.  Then score for you!

Eric Young Jr. – Left yesterday’s game with a intercostal strain.  The highway running along the coast of Florida?  Well, whatever, he’s still probably gonna hit the DL.  He should join Mat Gamel and Lorenzo Cain for the University of Phoenix course, “Not Getting Injury On The Job When You Finally Get A Chance To Play.”

Mike Minor – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks.  Not an exceptional game, and I’m kinda only mentioning him because I can’t go without mentioning him or Medlen.  I love them like a fat kid loves cake.  They’re my Bieber!

Ryan Vogelsong – 3 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 7 Ks.  I know that song.  It’s usually sung by Jonathan Sanchez.

Clayton Richard – 8 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 1 K, giving him something to brag about at the next Two First Names Club meeting with Cody Ross and Ryan Howard.

Cameron Maybin – 4-for-5, a run, 3 RBIs and his 21st steal.  Literally, half the Padres hitters got a steal yesterday and steam was literally coming out of Vogelsong’s ears and the baserunners literally danced for Joy Behar.

Will Venable – 3-for-4, 2 runs and a slam (8) and legs (17).  Padres use him sparingly vs. lefties and he hasn’t done a whole lot to warrant further confidence, i.e., Will Unable.

Jarrod Parker – 8 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 2 Ks.  I streamed Billingsley and Parker because the Stream-o-Nator told me to and I didn’t think about it any further.  When I went back to look at their lines, I fell in love a little more.

Coco Crisp – 3-for-5, 5 RBIs and his 7th homer.  He’s GRRRRRRRRRREAT!  For cereal.

Mike Trout – 1-for-4 with his 24th homer.  His name should be Mike Trhomer or Trsteal.  Out has no business being in his name.

Bryce Harper – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer this weekend, as he sat out Saturday vs. Niese.  Yay, ESPN Harportes can come out of reruns.

David DeJesus – 3-for-4, 2 runs and hitting over .300 in the last week with 3 homers.  Looks like that Peruvian man who reported to the Vatican that he saw an impression of DeJesus on a piece of toast wasn’t a metaphor for DeJesus being toast, but for him being hot like butter on toast.

Aaron Hill – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 2 solo homers and a steal for the blackboard special, the Lumberjack Slam & Legs.  Hill now has 3 homers in the last two games, and 17 homers, 9 steals and a .298 average on the year.  Aaron Hill does not get the Gas Face, y’all.

Krispie Young – 2-for-5 with a steal.  On Saturday, he went 4-for-5 with a homer.  TCBY — what’s that stand for, you ask.  It stands for That’s Chris B. Young.  We’re not talking about fro-yo, yo.  Own Krispie, immediately.

Armando Galarraga – 3 2/3 IP, 5 ER.  After the game, he was presented with a 1970 AMC Gremlin that needs some work.

Brad Mills – Astros fired their field general, Mills, which would make him today, Cap’n Grouchy.  The Astros owners said in a statement, “Someone needs to be held accountable for all of our losses and we can’t fire ourselves.”  When a team can’t draw fans with wins or a new stadium, there’s only one way to do it — $5 says they’re gonna hire Bagwell or Biggio to be their manager.

            @Grey, I only did RCL this year, I was going to do a fantasy sabatical (much needed with the douchebags I was playing with that make the rock and roll sushi chef look like a cool guy to hang out with), but changed my mind last minute and joined RCL. Which would have been fun if I hadn’t drafted Jupton and Gonzo with my first two picks. The best part of fantasy baseball this year has been commenting on this site, everything else has been yawnstipating.

            I got saved when I jumped into Awesomous’s auction keeper a couple of weeks ago, but that was just to position my self for next year, which, btw, I have kicked ass at.

    Murph
    Krispie
    Fowler
    DeJesus
    Werth
    Colvin
    Cain

    12 team H2H, we count OBP as well as AVG…

    • phin says:
      (link)

      @Steve, it’s totally dependant on the scoring of your league, but with OBP & AVG thrown into the reg 5×5 i’d go fowler. he has a healthy OBP this year and he has multi-hit games in 7 of his last 9 putting his AVG over .300. you can’t trust tracy to play colvin every day and i don’t like the AVG of krispie.

      on a semi-related note i suggested the team name Lotus Fowler when asked about radiohead themed fantasy baseball team names earlier in the year. so there’s also that.

  10. Rutledge pulled with his aggravated quad again. Would you recommed Aybar (presently own 3 other Angels – none of which named after a fish) or Plouffe (that sort of sounds like a fish) the rest of the way?
    Also thinking of dumping Stubbs or Hunter for Krispie. Think TCBY stays hot for a month+? Or, like yogurt, after about a steady week you realize that it’s really not that good.

    Player X is hitting .380 and is an MVP candidate in September

    Grey in September: player X is 2 for his last 20 with no homeruns. I TOLD YOU NOT TO DRAFT HIM! Thank me later.

    Disclaimer: no, for those of you that will run to his defense, this is a hypothetical and not specifically about David wright. I do not think Wright is an MVP candidate.

    • beardcrabs says:

    In my league, we can keep three players. The keeper penalty is the loss of a the draft pick immediately earlier than the pick used on the kept player (e.g., loss of the 5th-round pick if the kept player was drafted 6th). If the kept player was selected after the 10th round or picked up on waivers, you lose the 10th pick. The next post-10th-round keeper costs the 11th pick; the next one costs the 12th. To put things in perspective, my keepers this year were Bumgarner, Hosmer, and Lawrie at 10, 11, and 12.

    Anyway, I drafted Chapman at 20 (and Kenley Jansen at 21) this year. I have to keep him despite the loss of the 10th round pick, right?

    And to further the Chapman point even further…just imagine if he didn’t have 10 IP in June where he gave up 8 ER…June bugged this chap man…sorry, I just watched the latest Newsroom, and you are correct sir, my eyes were lucky to survive the hour…Munn is pretty cute though, though I wonder if it’s just the juxtaposition of her and the EP/bush baby, that makes her look even better…….though he really showed her by hiring her ex-boyfriend to write that feature, even though she cheated on him with him, he wants her to know that he doesn’t care anymore by completely going out of his way to absolutely letting her know that he doesn’t care…..oh, the good times we had…it is funny to me how Sorkin is showing us all how absurd it is for the “news” to cover such absurdity on a nightly basis by writing it on a weekly one…So, if you throw out those 10 innings in June, Chapman has the CY locked up, even with them he might still get it…Reds vs NYY!

      @Wake Up, Yeah, show is so terrible… I’m a few back, not that you ruined anything, I couldn’t care less… I just watched the one where Munn asked for privacy to talk to the Japanese guy, he confided in her and then she told the public. Sorkin sure does love making his women characters look like ass…. Yup, Chapman could’ve been even better…

      • @Grey, Coming from an actual journalist here … I gave up 20 minutes into episode 3. I enjoyed ‘West Wing’ and ‘A Few Good Men,’ but they really should have called ‘The Newsroom’ ‘The Bad Cliche.’

    Thank you Dr. S.O. Nator. I was really having a hard time deciding between your choices of Clayton Richard or Jarrod Parker. Both were available and while Richard looked like the safer of the two, you had Parker ranked a bit higher.

    I went with Parker.

    Hell, I should have gone with both. Or either.

    And what the hell. I started Colon too and got a near perfect game from him.

    Dr. Nator, you can run my team. Please email me for account info. I’ll split the prize money with you.

    Thoughts on Ben Sheets going forward? I need SP help, deadline just passed… Skaggs available in my deep keeper, make the swap? Also have Hultzen/Cashner on the pine for the playoff push…

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @supra, I wouldn’t swap to Skaggs… Sheets is droppable though if there’s anyone less risky available…

    • Prezii says:
      (link)

      @supra, i just dropped sheets in my 10 teamer for skaggs if that helps? Sheets has already hit waivers twice so i figured i’d put him back where i got him..

      Although, as grey has stated, his matchup @SF looks pretty nice..

      • Prezii says:
        (link)

        Its a non keeper tho. My feeling could be wrong, but i would NOT trust Sheets after another 3 starts.. the whole “my arm is falling off and im 50″ scares me… Skaggs is nasty and probably worth the upside (if they keep him in the rotation), but is still a big question mark first time in the show..

    My Bum for his Kemp.

    I know what you’re going to say, but something is stopping me from making this deal. I’m first in Ks, ERA, WHIP, and Wins but just by a hair. I need a fair amount of help in HR, RBI, R, and Steals. This trade would help my offense but at what risk to my slim pitching leads? Can streamers really make up for a lost Bum?

    Thanks dude.

      Deal’s about needs right now in a non-keeper… Don’t do it of it hurts your team…

    • Steve Stevenson says:
      (link)

      @L-Boogie, I’ve found streaming options in my 12-teamers to be pretty good the last month or two, and if you’ve got the roster spot and no innings cap issue, I’d say you can offset the loss of Bum pretty easily by streaming (you’ll definitely beef up W and K, and probably won’t lose much if anything in the ratios at this point). If you’re close enough in the hitting counting stats to make a move, I like Kemp there.

    Roger Clemens has signed a contract with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League. Clemens was hitting 87 mph with his fastball during a workout for the team on Monday and will make his starting debut this Saturday.

    leaning Colon…

    2. Need 2 batters out of: Sandoval, Rizzo, Chipper?

    leaning Sandoval, Rizzo…

    What do you think? Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Cobb 2. Sandoval, Rizzo

  50. I didn’t hear about Rutledge until reading all the comments here. Are he and EY2 likely headed to the DL? If so, is either worth stashing?

    If I can drop one of them I’ve got two empty roster spots: the one I drop, plus Aaron Cook, with the other of Rutledge and Young moving into the DL slot where I currently have Ian Desmond.

    Desmond’s not hitting yet, so I’d need to pick up a SS (AVE, R, OPS are my main needs, in that order). Who do I grab until Desmond has a multi-hit game? Choices are Tyler Greene, Brandon Crawford, Paul Janish, Joaquim Arias. Or am I better off just plugging Desmond in there?

    For the other spot, I assume Murphy’s my best pickup. But the other options are Dirks, Brandon Belt, Davis DeJesus … or maybe Jeff Baker (the Tigers face six LHP in a row)

    (As you’d guess this is a deep league: 6×5 roto redraft).

      • @Grey, Actually, Grey, if I don’t pick up a temporary SS I’ve got another roster spot.

        The options again are Dirks, Brandon Belt, Davis DeJesus or Jeff Baker. But I’m not sure if I need so many OF/UTIL types (I already have Bourn, Victorino, Jon Jay, Rizzo, De Aza, Stubbs for four roster spots, and will soon add Murphy to the mix).

        Alternatively, I could hold onto Cook while waiting for Balfour to implode. Or to change closers-in-waiting, grab Vinnie Pestano.

        Or grab a second C … I have Wilin Rosario but Grandal’s available.

        There are good SPs available (Straily, Jaime Garcia) but I’m 27-innings over pace for 1250 and already have a good staff of Bumgarner, Gio, Medlen, Fister, Matt Moore I need to be selective with.

        I would killed for an extra roster spot earlier in the season but now I’m not that clear on how to fill it ….

        Thanks again.

          Dirks is the best bat but he faces some lefties this week… Can try Crawford for a few days until Desmond hits if you have room…

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      • MikeZ says:
        (link)

        @Grey, so would you prefer Harang (at home V. MIA) oer Feldman then?

    Mike Young, Scutaro, Chipper, P Alverez, Chavez, Luis Cruz, Aybar, Scutaro, Eric Chavez, Crisp, David DeJesus, Adam Dunn, Colvin, Fowler

    Choose 4 for 2013:

    Marte, Olt, B Jackson, Skaggs, Straily

      Grey says:

  58. Sam says:

    1) I’m holding Affeldt and looking for saves, preferably without the 9th inning meltdowns.

    Affeldt, Axford, Bell or Rauch?

    2) Since I’m 6 points back from achieving 3rd from the bottom in the saves category and then another 11 points from 4th, should I jettison Affeldt for Medlen and then sit more starters due to IP limit?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Grab Medlen…

      • Shin-Soo Choo Choo says:
        (link)

        @Grey, Drop Affeldt or Wilton Lopez?

        I know your usual answer is to go with the guy who’s been named closer, but in Lopez’ case there’s a possibility of, what, under 5 save chances ROS?

        • Shin-Soo Choo Choo says:
          (link)

          @Shin-Soo Choo Choo, Could also drop Fister for Medlen.

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            I’d go with Medlen…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          They’re probably even for saves… Flip a coin and that’s who will get more saves… I have Affeldt on one team and no Lopez, so there’s that…

    With the bases loaded, how does Bruce double to deep right and only one guy score?

    Keep Jesus Montero, or drop for Salvador Perez? Really need R and RBI at this point, and looking to make even incremental changes

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d go with Perez…

  65. Steve says:

    Jesus. Rollins really is useless right now. That’s 19 ABs without a hit I think.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Yeah, even pressing or injured…

    Any of these guys on the DL have a chance to help me ROS?

    Berkman, Lind, Pettitte, Doubront, Lilly, Niemann, Jurrjens

    I’m guessing no, but I thought I’d ask :)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Nah… If you have a spot, stash Berkman, but seems doubtful…

      • Jon says:
        (link)

        @Grey, yeah, I have an open spot, but there’s not much out there (as you can see…)

    Is dropping Rollins for Erick Aybar such a crazy thing to do?

    If you could pick two of these for Wednesday, who would they be?

    J-Mac, Milone, Harvey, or Z-Mac

    SON has them all really close, so I defer to the Grey. Not the movie where Liam Neeson fights a bunch of wolves. The guy with the website for people who like fantasy sports and sarcasm.

    Thanks!
