“What about Asdrubal?  Asdrubal, Cron, Buxton, Peraza, Morales and Puig?  Puig, Morales, Asdrubal, Buxton and Morales?  Have I already mentioned Morales?  What about Puig?  What about Cron?  WHAT ABOUT CRON?!  Hardwiring is smoking!  I think I’m overheating!  Don’t throw water on me, I’ll short circuit!” It’s too late.  As the water hits the Fantasy Master Lothario’s mainframe, a sickening mix of smoke and sizzle expels from his metal joints.  He staggers to a pole and places his metal hand down.  With one last flicker, he looks up with his metallic, blue eyes and asks hopefully, “Is Puig facing a lefty?”  And shuts down.  The metal pole he placed his hand on wasn’t just any pole, it hung Old Glory.  As if the ghost of George Washington himself was a fan, the American flag lowers onto the Lothario’s shoulders, draping him like a metal Kid Rock.  If only people would’ve just picked up C.J. Cron!  My one major quibble with Cron — Or is it queef?  I always confuse those two. — is Cron going to have The Sciosciapath try to outsmart the universe and start benching one of the hottest hitters?  Not even the Sciosciapath can answer that, for he does not know what his brain tells him to do.  Plus, he’s crazy.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

Psyche!  Before we get into the Buy/Sell, just wanted to say a huge fantasy football announcement is coming in the next few days.  Let’s just say it sounds like Stream-o-Nator, but it’s got a football vibe to it.  And it’s less lonely.  Oh, Stream-o-Nator so lonely!  I wonder if the Stream-o-Nator and Hitter-Tron ever tried to date.  Anyway II, the Buy/Sell:

BUY

Tom MurphyRockies catcher who has power.  Now, onto more important matters, has any baseball player with the last name Murphy ever had an odd first name?  Murphys are always some normal, Billy, Danny, Dale, Tom, Tommy, Thomas, etc.  Well, I’m glad you asked!  Turns out in 1914 there was a Dummy Murphy.  He was a player-manager for the Charlotte Hornets.  Wonder if he played alongside/coached “Grandmama” Larry Johnson.  Speaking of which, our fantasy basketball leagues are signing up.  Go there and do that.

Wilmer Flores – Imagine if Wilmer were to star opposite Meryl Streep this winter and win an Oscar?  He’d have the best cry-face since Gwyneth.

Jose Peraza – If only Bud Selig were alive to see Jo-Pe being such a popular pickup.  And, please, before you comment Selig is alive, he was pickled and put into Hangar 51 with the Lost Ark 25 years ago.

Chris Owings – In the last seven days, Owings is hitting .500.  Fun fact!  Buffalo Wild Wings campaign to call their special, orgasmic wings Owings never made it past the National Menu Regulatory Committee.  Same fate almost happened to flapjacks.

Adonis Garcia – I just dropped Adonis on Thursday.  Ooh, way to entice us into picking him up!  I have a point I’m making, Random Italicized Voice.  Funny, I have a needlepoint I’m making.  Okay, my point is you need to fill up your lineup with hitters every day as best you can.  So, I like Adonis and might pick him back up, but he wasn’t playing on Thursday so I dropped him.

Jung Ho Kang – A song I can sing to Kang is the same song he sings to his dates.  “Cause you’re hot then you’re cold, you’re yes then you’re no.  I’m in when you’re out.”

Jose Reyes – Maybe I should separate Kang and Reyes from being listed together.  I mean, would you let the Duke lacrosse team sit together at The Horny Woodchuck during their breaded clam special?

Asdrubal Cabrera – I wonder how many MVP votes Asdrubal will garner if the Mets make the playoffs.  My guess is one tenth place vote from Jeffrey Steingarten of Vogue.

Byron Buxton – We’re lucky a lot of people abandon fantasy baseball during September for football.  No, not simply because they’re poseurs.  By the way, poseur is the most poseur way to spell poser, right?  Any hoo!  No, the reason we should be grateful because there’s gonna be people returning next March with no clue what kind of month Buxton is having.  You know how Villar is a top ten player on Player Rater?  Well, he is.  Next year, Buxton could be that good.  Not saying he will, but he could.

Yasiel Puig – I call this, “Nuthin’ but a Pweeg Thang.”  One, two, three to the oh-for-four.  Dodger Dogs and Grey is at the door.  Ready to make an entrance, so Puig’s back up.  Cause you know he’s up to rip shizz up.  Give the Cuban an at-bat so he can bust like a bubble.  Compton and Long Beach likely don’t have a huge fantasy baseball blog readership but we’re together and you’re in trouble.  Ain’t nothing but a Pweeg thang, baby. Lasorda, Dean Cain and Nyjer in the stands, so we’re crazy.  Those bizarre Candy Crush Saga ads are what pay me.  Unfadeable, so please don’t try fade Albright (hell yeah).

Jarrod Dyson – I thought Rajai Davis, The King of SAGNOF, would’ve had the coronation of Dyson by now, but now you know how Prince Charles feels.  “Charles, where are you going with that tiny pillow of chloroform?”  “Oh, nowhere.”

Colby Rasmus – I just went over him this morning.  If you scroll back real fast, your hair will grow back (it won’t).

Coco Crisp – This is a Hitter-Tron call, like when it calls an auto body shop and asks to speak with the sexy, red Camaro wearing the car bra.

Randal Grichuk – I already gave you my Randal Grichuk fantasy.  Since I told you to pick him up, he’s hit five more homers, but what do I know?  I’m just a poor, little handsome boy from New Jersey.

Kevin Kiermaier – Not much beyond a hot schmotato and you shouldn’t be looking for anything but hot schmotatoes, so put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Raimel Tapia – Honestly, by the time you add him in redraft leagues A) He’s going to be on the road. B) Blackmon will return and Tapia will lose playing time. C) There’s no C. D) There’s no C, but there’s a D?  What’s wrong with you, man?  Seriously.

Andrew Bailey – It’s not entirely that I think Bailey can’t close games for the next three weeks.  I mean, the Angels might get only a handful and Bailey can be fine.  My problem with him is a larger Sciosciapath issue.  If they tried Deolis or J.C. Ramirez, the Angels could have explored what they had for a closer for years to come.  Maybe even trading Street this offseason and trying one of their young relievers.  Now, they’re just throwing the old guy, who they know is a broken-down mess, for saves, which will lead to nothing for their future.  Why do I care about the Angels’ future?  I don’t!  I just like to get annoyed at The Sciosciapath and this seemed like a good opportunity.

Tyler Thornburg – You know how dominant Betances is?  (Just say you do.  For heaven’s sake, just say you do!)  Thornburg has been as valuable as Betances this year.

Jim Johnson – It’s like I keep shouting into a cave that I have this Johnson and no one hears me.  Which sounds like a setup to an Andrew Dice Clay joke.

Luke Weaver – I’m a little iffier on Weaver than the Stream-o-Nator, but I’m willing to give it a trust fall.  I mean, it feels like a pretty safe bet that a lonely robot will be able to catch me.  What else is it doing?

Jon Gray – This is another Stream-o-Nator call.  This one I feel more confident on (which means it’ll bite me in the ass).  He’s facing the Padres.  Right now, I’d stream my iFetch against the Padres.

SELL

Yoan Moncada – According to my figures, he’s owned in 95% of RCLs and has been less valuable than Nadir Bupkis.  Maybe he can still turn that frown upside down, and cover his mouth when he’s Yoan’ing, but for this year, I’m looking elsewhere.

Giancarlo Stanton – This must be what it feels like to be a cutter.  This hurts me so much to say but Giancarlo came back as a sign of good faith for the Marlins.  The Marlins who are about to fade themselves from the playoffs anyway, and make his return moot.  Even if they stayed in the race, what’s Giancarlo going to do?  Play every third game, hit three homers and look so good in his booty-hugging pants?  We all know his groin is perfectly, entirely, wonderfully fine.  So gloriously, impeccably fine, we don’t need him to play to prove it.

Jacob deGrom – The Mets’ pitcher updates go like this:  if an arm needs surgery, they say nothing.  If an arm is injured but doesn’t require surgery, they say the pitcher might make his next start.  If an arm is beyond repair, they say it’s a back injury.  With the Mets’ Injury Index in mind, they said deGrom just needs to rest and might make his next start.  Though, they haven’t said anything in about five days.  So, they’re deciding on shutting him down for surgery and he has an arm injury.  Just pray nothing happens to deGrom’s back.

                  @Ralph Lifshitz: depends on your definition of fighting dirty. I’ve seen too many people get stuck and that’s super fucked up. Or using your buddies to jump someone you picked a fight with. Just fight him yourself.

        @Grey: oh yeah. I already told you my last two doctor visits wasn’t good on the diabetes front. Got to get blood sugar right. Been going the semi kitogenics route and working out again. Down 15 pounds the last 5 weeks and added some muscle mass back on at the same time. Getting back into fighting shape. I don’t write anymore so I have to do something with my spare time. That being said talked to magoo and come November it’s time to start doing the fun stuff with stats.

                    (link)

                    @Grey: I do them on the BBQ on skewers, simple coating of olive oil, kosher salt and cracked pepper. Make sure they are dry when you prep them, wet ones get chewy

                      (link)

                      Maybe they were wet then, cause they always get chewy… I have to deal with an electric stovetop too

    Hanging onto to 1st by a thread (3 points) in a 12 team 5X5 roto. Need Avg & Runs the most but also steals ( but 9 behind 5th & 15 ahead of 7th) so might be hard to make up ground but I did recently add Dyson so maybe I do some damage there. I am 1st in both RBIs & HRs.
    My questions are
    1) I have Semien & he is pretty cold for a month & getting worse. Would Anderson on waivers) or O Arcia be worth a pick-up?
    2) Recently added Bell but he is not getting much playing time (although 8 games scheduled this week) & not much to choose from: Valencia, Healy, Gordon,Almonte, Chisenhall, Dickerson, Pillar, Shaw or Reddick (6 games this week vs R handers)

It is going to come down to the wire for me so you have to assess the reward more over the risk if you’re desperate. I am way behind in ABs so i need anything i can get or risk going home. At least thats how i look at my situation. I picked up Kiermaier btw… good luck!

    Keeper question!

    1. With Correa being perceived as meh by some, would you trade a $30 Kershaw for a $6 Correa? A $6 Lindor may also be available.

    Keep 7 forever, $3 inflation (Kershaw is my only pitching keeper).

    2. Also, would you hold a $19 Toddfather over a $5 Schoop or $4 Ozuna? $7 Lamb may also be available…

    Hey Grey I know I asked the other day but just realized one of my planned started over this weekend (T. Anderson) isn’t pitching @SD and instead he’ll be pitching vs. ARI on Monday? This 2 week matchup ends next Sunday (9/18) but tomorrow I don’t have any starters planned otherwise and only L. Weaver vs. MIL (17.8) planned on Sunday so I’m wondering I should drop Anderson now to stream one or two guys over the weekend?

    9/10
    McHugh vs. CHN (5.1)
    Colon @ATL (1.3)
    Volquez @CHA (-7.8)
    Bradley vs. SF (-9.6)
    Eickhoff @WAS (-13.8)

    9/11
    Paxton @OAK (1.4)
    Lugo @ATL (-3.0)

    I’m only asking because although I’m up by like 50 pts right now but my opponent has the following options on his roster right now and a bunch of probable starters for this weekend… I don’t know if he’ll actually be starting Buchholz and Rodriguez (he’s a big Sox fan) but obviously SON likes his other options…

    Wainwright vs. MIL (22.5)
    F. Hernandez @OAK (11.7)
    E. Rodriguez @TOR (-20.8)
    Buchholz @TOR (-10.8)
    Maeda @MIA (14.3)

    good god, i’m playing an absentee team that will barely qualify at minimum innings this week, and then ONLY due to kluber having 2 starts (or kershaw getting 3 innings, he’s been in starting slot all year), and i have ONE WIN from all of these guys so far this week, hamels/carrasco/boyd/bundy/duffy/smyly/gausman/brault (stream after i forgot to grab chatwood early enough)/salazar/pineda and now i have hamels going yet again. so i’m still tied in wins. this is a decent sized money league too, and we’re lucky this owner paid at all.

    • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
      (link)

      @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: hey, hows about we find some b.s. reason to push kluber to monday, this shit happens to my pitchers all the damn time, other than maybe OBP for the week i’d have a 13-0 shutout if kluber gets moved back, and will likely move into a top 2 or even one position for the entire regular season, which nets a bye and pays some money too (it’s looking likely i get at least 2nd no matter what happens here).

    Hey Grey,

    Round 1 of the playoffs starts next week. Going with the hot bat approach as you mentioned and I’m going to drop my utility bat, yasmany Tomas (cold lately) for one of these guys ..

    I have them ranked as followed based on schmotatoness:

    Kiermaier, grichuk, Cron – what do you think of this move/ how I ordered them on waivers?

    Also- which starts do you like more next week?
    Folty v MIA
    Urias @ NYY

    thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d go Cron, Grichuk…. Folty

  61. Josh-NYC says:
    (link)

    Bow down to the Fantasy Master Lothario.
    You have helped me for several years now.. and this could be my 4th straight fantasy baseball win.

    Position eligibility aside (riding the schmotoato train) do you like Cron and Grichuk more than Todd Frazier? Let me know if you like both more than him because I will be setting back up waivers. Thanks!

    • Josh-NYC says:
      (link)

      @Josh-NYC:

      Let me rephrase..

      I have Yasmany, Todd Frazier, and Khris Davis all slumping on my team..

      Cron, Grichuk, Kiermaer are all available.. How should I set waivers? Who should I keep and who should I drop?

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Cron and Grichuk over Davis and Tomas

    In response to my last question, it was a little unclear. You’d keep Frazier over Cron and grichuk? I guess I agree I figure I shouldn’t drop all of Tomas, Khris Davis and Frazier (my power surge) for Cron and grichuk..

    Would you start Ubaldo @ DET if you didnt really need the start?

    If i dont throw him, i might be forced to use Weaver vs MIL and/or Finnegan @ PIT 2moro.

    Whats your take on all those 3?

    Thanks and hope you had a great time at the fair! Sucks you couldnt meet up with my brother.

    • ThE sHiT says:
      (link)

      @ThE sHiT: looks like i have to start Ubaldo now that i just saw Archer got bombed. Im looking for Wins, down by one, and trying to pad the K lead since my ratios have been shot since early in the week.

    • Grey

      I’d start Weaver of those three but if I had to

      • ThE sHiT says:
        (link)

        @Grey: yeah The G is my twin brother.

        Looks like the Ubaldo risk worked out. The pen should be able to hold that lead. Ubaldo was the “best” available streamer for the next two days and i had to use my last move for the week on a stream.

        I have Moore and Weaver going 2moro, prolly not gonna throw Finnegan, he scares me too much. The other guy has Kluber and Verlander. So its gonna be a tight finish!

        • Grey

          Grey says:

    Is it too early to figure out who my 3 keepers will be for next year? I’m asking because I traded Scherzer away for Stanton earlier in the year thinking he’d be a keeper but the more I keep reading, it almost seems like he’s not even keeper worthy?

    We can keep up to 3 guys which as a result will consume the 1st 3 picks of next year’s snake draft so should I be keeping Stanton on my team now as a bench bat or be dropping him for someone else to potentially stash and keep? Who would you be keeping from this team? Or am I better off maybe only keeping 2 guys and be able to use that 3rd round pick to get a better shot at guys not being kept next year even though I don’t know who will be available until like an hour before next year’s draft?

    • Grey

      Harper, Odor and Correa as of now, Polanco and Stanton are close

      • ebudz says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Okay thanks!

        1) So I should just hold onto Stanton for now then?

        2) Also my lead is only like 20 points now but I’ve got L. Weaver vs. MIL tomorrow while my opponent will be starting Maeda @MIA and I think Buchholz @TOR? So looking ahead to Monday and the start of the 2nd half of this H2H points playoff matchup, which starters should I be planning on using? As you can see, Carrasco is the only one already picked.

        9/12
        Carrasco @CHA (17.4)*
        Duffy vs. OAK (8.1)
        Foltynewicz vs. MIA (7.7)

            @Grey: wow, so a dead roster spot (due to keeper price) is better than wendle/iglesias/cowart. or his keeper spot (25th rounder) is so good. gotta think duffy (19th), porcello (16th) and probably springer in the (2nd) are decent ones.

              He’s a keeper, these waiver grabs are terrible and are maybe a one-week rental

                @Grey: ok, moncada in the 25th better than which of my above 3
                duffy (19th)
                porcello (16th)
                springer (2nd)
                or any other i’m not saying

                  @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: above my line “with 3 keepers…” meant ONLY 3 keepers per year.

                  Oh! No, Moncada is not a keeper….Sorry, didn’t realize it was ONLY 3

                  • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
                    (link)

                    @Grey: yeah, it’s why i was so surprised by the answer, this isn’t a dynasty, or even keep 6.

                    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
                      (link)

                      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: so i guess drop orlando for activating cotton (leaving me with one bench player) and adding either wendle or iglesias (again) over moncada.

    Do you think Lugo goes 6 IP with his maybe healed blister issue? Better to go with a less injury-risk option like Fiers v Cubs or Edwin Jackson v Rockies?

    Thanks

      Fiers is less risky

    As much as thus hurts,please to rank in order of droppability.Domo arrigato.

    Cron
    Crush
    Dahl(his alleged steals aren’t a factor)

    Any thoughts on Marte? My OF is a mess on 1 team.

    Just need a win. ERA, WHIP, K’s already settled. Please pick one:

    Paxton at A’s (Acalantra)
    Luke Weaver v Brewers (Davies)
    Davies at Cards (Weaver)
    Cessa v Rays (Andriese)
    Vogelsong v Red (Finnegan)

          @The Hack:

          Vogey has been horrible lately. Stream liked Weaver, you liked Paxson. Crap I went with Grey. He gave me some good hitters this year but pitching not so much,

    Best bench bat for next week for Thursday short schedule day and any times that Bryant is benched for rest? OBP OPS league…

    Kang (red hot and 8 games [double header sat] against phi and cin)

    Peraza (cooled off lately and never walks) – 7 games (double v pirates sat but not playing on short schedule day) v Brewers and pirates

    Frazier – 7 v mostly bad CLE and KC, but really no clue what he’ll give you on any day

    My daughters new friend dropped some portmanteau’s on us the other day. She saw some teenagers kissing and said there is grossmance brewing over there. I’m like wow that’s how I feel about loving some previously hated fantasy players that aren’t sucking.

    Hey Grey,
    I have Gausman on my squad. didn’t drop him yet as I thought that he had a juicy matchup against the Rays next week. Now I notice that he’s facing the Red sox twice in a row. Time to drop I guess.
    Which one do you like best out of
    Folty vs Mia
    Cashner @ Atl
    E.Santana @ Det
    If I grab Cashner, I may hold him for his start against the phillies later in the week. Just don’t know that I trust him. He’s screwed me before.

    • Grey

    jandel gustave a mashup of an actual name and not really this guy’s name? his parents at least have an interesting sense of humor to send this kid out to school with that one (assuming they send kids to school where he comes from, not just plough or pick all day)
    what about andele jugstav?

    10 team H2H Points
    Pitcher Scoring: WIN (+3), LOSS (-3), IP (+3), K (+1), BB (-1), SAVE (+3), HOLD (+1), ER (-2), HIT (-1), SO (+3), NH (+10), PG (+15)

    (4) SP: Carrasco, Price, Salazar, Duffy
    (3) RP: Robertson, Osuna, Giles
    Bench: (Taillon, Nova, streamer-Folty, streamer-Ray)

    1) Yo Grey probably just missed you for the night but wondering if I should drop Salazar for De Leon as a potential stash/to prevent my opponent from starting him tomorrow?

    2) The plan was to just start the following guys marked with asterisk over the next couple days, unless you’d start De Leon now since SON changed it’s tune a bit?

    9/12
    Carrasco @CHA (17.7)*
    Foltynewicz vs. MIA (9.9)*
    Duffy vs. OAK (8.1)*
    De Leon @NYA (7.2)
    T. Anderson @ARI (-1.6)
    Boyd vs. MIN (-3.0)
    Cashner @ATL (-3.8)

    9/13
    Ray vs. COL (21.3)*
    Price vs. BAL (14.1)*
    Nova @PHI (9.0)*
    Cotton @KC (5.6)
    Urias @NYA (-4.7)
    Bauer @CHA (-4.7)

    3)Anyone else you’d start above? I’m currently trailing by 16 but the matchup ends next Sunday and I’m at 11/24 games started right now…

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @ebudz: i’d start deleon/urias/boyd (he’s outperformed SON and FIP all year)

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        @The Harrow: and cotton

        • ebudz says:
          (link)

          @The Harrow: Appreciate the input! So you wouldn’t hesitate dropping Salazar at this point?
