Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

I remember distinctly the day Will Clark retired.  I just got home from a Winter Solstice Pageant.  I was only 12 years old at the time, but my mustache was already coming in.  Earlier that night, when I was singing in the pageant, a mother yelled out from the audience, “Who’s the midget with the mustache?”  Then another parent yelled out, “Or is it a dwarf?  I always get confused.”  Another yelled, “Is that kid 40 years old?  I don’t know if I want my kid around that adult.”  I didn’t think my day could get worse, then, back at home, I heard that Clark retired.  I was still in my autumn leaf costume, sobbing into my Pop Rocks, essentially ruining them.  A devastating day all around, but things got better eventually.  Soon my friends’ parents wouldn’t call the cops when I was hanging out with their kid, thinking I was a 40-something pervert.  One mother even complimented me on my mustache.  Maybe this was where my love of Cougars first started.  What does this have to do with Wil Myers?  Nothing at all.  Just like his first two weeks mean nothing.  It’s two weeks!  Frequent Commenter, Oaktown Steve, asked the other day who would have more value this year, Wil Myers or Carlos Beltran?  It’s a totally fair question.  In my preseason projections, there’s essentially only 5 steals separating the two.  Of course, there is something like 15 years separating them too, and I would say one is moving up and one is moving down due to age.  Get a sense a lot of people are looking to bail on Myers already.  That would be a mistake.  He didn’t just happen to get named one of the top prospects in baseball.  He’s crazy talented.  He could go off still and be a first round draft pick for next year.  Now is the time you buy him on the cheap, not sell him.  Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell this week in fantasy baseball:

Psyche!  Before we get into this week’s Buy/Sell, just wanted to announce that Rest of the Season Projections are on-site and everyone’s favorite fantasy baseball dinosaur, Buysellatops.  The Buyasellatops is easy to use.  When you first get to the page, Sells are listed first.  To see Buys, click ROS$ minus STD$.  To see Rest of Season projections, click on any player’s name — in this post or anywhere on-site.  Finally, with the Rest of Season Projections, it means the Fantasy Baseball Player Rater is now functional and the Rest of the Season Player Rater. Anyway II, the Buy/Sell:

BUY

Jarrod Dyson – Ever see a Tyson chicken run around right after its head is cut off?  Me neither, but I like to think there’s some similarities to Dyson.  The Hitter-Tron likes Dyson today, but the Hitter-Tron didn’t know Dyson had a funeral this weekend, but he should be back stealing bases by the end of the weekend assuming he wasn’t seen talking to Alfredo Simon and Alfredo Simon wasn’t then seen anywhere near the person who passed away.

Eric Young Jr. – My horse, a fantasy league where Eric Young Jr. still isn’t owned for my horse!  Just for s’s and g’s, let’s look at Dustin Ackley, who is owned in 60% of ESPN leagues, vs. Young, who is owned in 35%.  Young has 9 steals.  Okay, enough of that comparison, it’s not even close.

David Murphy – One schmotato, two.  Three schmotato, hot!  I think that was a mash-up of One Potato, Two Potato and Duck, Duck, Goose, but I’d have to ask Pharrell.

Krispie Young – Supposed to return today.  Missed out on George Springer?  Well, Krispie prolly won’t make you feel as great about yourself, but he could give around the same stats (in the best case scenario for Krispie and worst case for Springer).  Yes, that was an important parenthesis.

Marcell Ozuna – A Grey crush comes around once every few years and it grips my soul and doesn’t let go.  Goldschmidt last year, Mark Reynolds the year he went crazy.  Ozuna is not in that class.  Yet.  I do like him very much and I just said that in a voice like I was Apu.

Junior Lake – Fun fact!  He once ran into Lake Superior screaming, “Papa!”

Devin Mesoraco – You know you wanna ask me a catcher question.  You know you do!  So, go ahead.  I won’t bite.  Just keep in mind Jason Castro is not listed here because he’s owned in more than 50% of leagues.  I do like Castro better.

Justin Morneau – Did you know BevMo once opened a general discount store named, JustMo?  They couldn’t figure out what not to put on the shelves, so they closed it.

Chris Colabello – I’ve recommended him so many times you’d think I actually liked him.  I mean, he’s okay, but the current corner infidel waiver guys are so pee poor.  What am I supposed to do with Zimmerman and Beltre down?  Pick up Conor Gillaspie?  Hmm, actually Gillaspie hasn’t been that bad.  Aw geez, this is bad.

Nick Franklin – Here’s what I just said about Franklin, “(Franklin) was recalled to play some outfield and DH while Logan Morrison figures out why he can’t stay healthy.  “Is it because I cut in front of that Native American shaman at a Subway?  I thought he ordered already.”  That’s Morrison soul-searching.  Franklin has pounded the ball in the minors in the first two weeks — hitting close to .400 with 4 homers.  He’s hit well in the minors before and still hit .225 for Seattle last year, though with power and some speed.  The Mariners are a better team with Franklin playing over Morrison even if the latter is healthy and latter means Morrison.  I was gonna write a sleeper post about Franklin in the preseason if he had a starting job.  Had my iCal reminder set in my mind.  See that?  I upgraded from a brain to a Mac product just that easily.  Steve Jobs, you were a pioneer in consumerism!  Speaking of revolutionary products, I just bought a white desk, and now I can see every smudge I make, so how about a can of dust spray?  Never again do you have to obsess about one little smudge; you can now cover your brand new desk in dust rather than wait for it to naturally accumulate.  Good idea, right?  Thank me.  I could see Franklin giving 50/15/60/.290/10 in 400 ABs.  Does he get 400 ABs?  Highly unlikely, but worth picking up if you have room and can platoon him because he’s not assured playing time.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Danny Espinosa – He’s cut down his strikeouts by a huge amount so far this year.  He doesn’t necessarily look like a .290 hitter, nor does he look like he’ll have everyday playing time once Bummerman returns, but Espinosa is worth a flyer if you’re hurting due to his speed and power.

Zach Walters – If we were to look at Walters with 20/20 vision, Hugh Downs would tell us to back off, she’s his lady. We’d also see Walters doesn’t really have a situation where he’s going to get playing time if Espinosa keeps hitting.  So I’d only look at Walters with Hugh Downs’s adoring eyes in very deep leagues — think NL-Only.

Derek DietrichRafael Furcal is due to return, but he’s also due to get hurt again.  Probably two days after he returns.  Dietrich had 9 homers last year in 57 games and three in nine this year. So, he’s basically a 120-homer hitter with everyday at-bats.  Plus or minus 105.

Kolten Wong – Isn’t exactly taking the job and Wong’ing wild, but still worth holding at an MI spot in case he catches fire.

Lonnie Chisenhall – The hottest schmotato in all the land and he barely has a starting job.  Hey, they all ain’t purdy.

Kevin KouzmanoffKouzmanoff?  What, Kyle Blanks isn’t good enough for your Buy column?  Cute, Random Italicized Voice.  Seriously, what is Julio Borbon up to?  I get it.  Mat Gamel?

Erik Bedard – We’ll see tonight if the Stream-o-Nator is right to be singing, “Let’s get Bedarded in here” like it’s Will.i.am and not like it’s socially insenstive.

Jesse Chavez – Any time a guy has a 9+ K-rate and an under 1 walk rate in three starts in a row, he should be owned.  No questions asked.

Tyler Skaggs -Definitely burp on his last start on Wednesday, but his velocity is up and his walks are way down.  Hasn’t really translated to major Ks so far, but I’d give him at least one more start.

Drew Hutchison – Two weeks a row now that I’m recommending Hutchison, but not recommending him because of him, but recommending him because the Stream-o-Nator likes his start.

Matt Lindstrom – We started our Buys with SAGNOF of the fast-leg variety, and we will end with SAGNOF of the fast-getting-on-our-nerves variety.

Jonathan Broxton – I’m pretty confident Aroldis will return, find out the comebacker that hit his melon made him like John Travolta in Phenomenon and be able to hold a truck up with one hand while throwing a baseball with the other, but, until that day comes, Broxton is ownable.

Pedro Strop – I could’ve mentioned Hector Rondon here too.  Hey, look at that, I just did!

Shawn Kelley – Only a few more days to get on the Kelley bandwagon.  Don’t worry, there’s plenty of room.  Nate Jones’s former owners are standing at the gate scaring people away.

SELL

Adrian Gonzalez – A-Gon’s got his groove back and he didn’t need to be diddled by Taye Diggs!  Sorry, I can’t take credit for that line.  That’s from the 10 o’clock Fox News.  Fox partnered with super-cheap sex toy, Body Wand Personal Massager.  By the by, when did CVS start carrying vibrators?  I mean, granted, I am getting old, and maybe I’m starting to think like an old person, but I was somewhat surprised to see vibrators in the Family Planning aisle of CVS.  Is this so when Ms. Lonely Hearts go to CVS to pretend they’re shopping for condoms they’ll see vibrators?  I don’t even want to think about who would buy one of these from a CVS.  You don’t have the internet and you need to go to a CVS to buy a sex toy?  Get this shizz shipped to you!  Any the hoo!  A-Gon has started the year as hot as a thing that is hot — weak metaphor points! — with five homers in 16 games.  Well, he also had 5 homers in the month of May last year and still wouldn’t have hit 20 homers if he didn’t have any road trips to Coors.  He hit four homers in four straight games last week.  That doesn’t mean he will hit 30+ homers this year.  That means he had a hot four games.  I wouldn’t trade him for, say, a Body Wand Personal Massager from CVS, but I would explore offers.

    Would you trade Fielder for either Weaver or Cingrani? I need a SP, and at 1B I have Fielder, Abreu, and am about to pick up Napoli off the waivers cuz someone got drunk last night and accidentally dropped him.

    • mauledbypandas says:

      @mplat: I wouldn’t trade Fielder for Weaver and Cingrani. He should get you a top starter if you were so inclined but his numbers thus far will depress his value.

          @ashtray: As a Fielder owner, I would laugh in your face if you offered me Weaver AND Cingrani, nevermind just one of them. Despite his slow start, Fielder is easily a top 30 player, if not higher. If you’re going to trade him for a starter, don’t take less than someone from the Price/Bumgarner tier.

    I’m gonna start this off with a bang:

    I’ve dropped Meseraco for Castro in 1 league or 2 and Yan Gomes for Castro in another, other catchers I own are Gattis who I snagged off the wire.

    Castro I I do own in 1 league still, is it gonna hurt for ROS or at least for a big to stick with Meseraco or are you not a full time believer?

    I know you like Castro better but Meseraco really seems like a legit hitter on a pretty good team in the Reds.

    Thanks again Grey.

    Hey Grey,

    Quick question…

    I have Kuroda Wacha and Tillman going today, was looking at starting all 3 in a H2H 5×5 but was considering sitting one as I want to try and preserve whip and era. Ks and Ws are even between us.

    If you were going to sit one who would you sit?

    I was thinking…

    1 Wacha
    2 Tillman
    3 Kuroda

    Possibly going to sit kuroda, what are your thoughts?

    Well now that you put up ROS Player Rater you make my question a little redundant so I’ll ask it in a different way what percentage chance to you give Reyes outperforming Segura ROS.

    Also on Will Clark and others, I wish I could play Fantasy baseball circa 1989. Who would the top ten be? Without Looking at stats and with my extremely unstudied memory, Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire and Rickey Henderson would have to all be top 10 right? Has there ever been a team with more than 2 first rounders? (Obvious A’s fan here)

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d want Segura by a lot… Wally Joyner in the discussion? Eric Davis?

      • Deck says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Apparently the second half for Segura last year running straight through to the beginning of this year doesn’t scare you as much as it does me, I am honestly looking to sell low, but I’ll give it a week or two more.

        Kevin Mitchell probably round two or three, havent looked at stats but Griffey would’ve been the Springer of the year.

      @Deck: It’s actually pretty interesting to look back at some of the best players from 1988…

      http://www.baseball-reference.com/awards/awards_1988.shtml

      Like where would old Gibby go, after going 25 HR, 30 SB, winning the MVP, and of course the fist-pumpingest postseason ever? (He was awful in 1989.)

      • Deck says:
        (link)

        @Goose: Speaking of which, how does he beat out Strawberry for that MVP 39 HR 29 SB? Also we don’t talk about fist pumping in my family.

    • We have a player rater for that too:
      http://razzball.com/playerrater-besthitters-1980-1989/

      You can filter down to 1989 by typing that in under ‘Year’. Howard Johnson is the clear #1 thanks to his stealth SS eligibility. I measure it as the third best SS season since 1903 (!!!!!!!!!) after two Honus Wagner seasons. His 1991 season finishes #15. And his fried clams were awesome too.

    Nice column, Grey! I’m waiting this every friday.
    In 4 OF league, JoeyBats, Rios, Beltran are my first 3. I’m definitely okay with them But 4th man.
    I’m platooning Joyce and Schierholtz as my 4th outfielder. They’re boring to own and I want more certain guy. (This is 12 teamer, 26 roster spots. So hard to say shallow league. I’m really struggling to find out my man on waiver wire)

    (link)

    Love the buysellatops…My entire team seems to fall in the Buy category, which could explain why those POSs have produced last place results to this point. Would like your thoughts on a couple of players:

    Danny Salazar – WTF? Saw the article this morning but is there any hope for a turnaround?
    Homer Bailey – Also WTF?
    Chris Davis – more SBs than HRs, while i like the improved average, have you seen anything that explains the lack of power to this point? (there are 10 SECOND BASEMEN with more home runs than this guy)
    David Wright – generally shitty
    Will Venable – everyone sees 15/15 or even 20/20 potential but all I’m seeing is a bunch of crap produced on a nightly basis – is he droppable in a 14 team mixed or would you ride it out?

    Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Bonghuetz: I’ve gone over the first two in the last 3 days… Davis will be fine… I’m not a huge Wright fan, Venable’s around a 12-homer guy prolly

    • I hear you. The joy of playing in as many leagues as I’m in is that you’ll get at least a couple that suck out of the gate. Hard to know if they are lemons or just slow starters. I don’t think any of these 5 are lost causes. Davis/Wright are the only two with even a 2 year track record. I think they’ll both be fine and that Davis will get his HRs in bunches (BAL is a great HR park for lefties). Venable is a tougher case. Have him in a 12-team league and a 15-team league and I’m holding in both but sitting him where possible against LHP. Salazar/Bailey have a ton of upside so you’re forced to sit through the struggles for now. Wouldn’t be afraid to sit them for a particularly bad matchup though.

    I’m in a 12-team 5×5 roto league and I’ve been holding on to the number one waiver priority claim. Dan Haren will get off waivers tomorrow, but the league has a one-day waiting period before Free Agents can be started, so if I want him for his start tomorrow against the Diamondbacks, I need to put out a waiver claim. Stream-O-Nator loves him for his next two starts. Should I pick him up with the waiver claim? My other pitchers are Cliff Lee, Matt Cain, Marco Estrada, Clay Buchholz, Drew Smyly, Jesse Chavez, Doug Fister, Hisashi Iwakuma (in my DL spot), and then my closers are Jonathan Papelbon, Tommy Hunter, and LaTroy Hawkins so I would probably have to drop one of my starting pitchers in order to pick Haren up. I could also drop Matt Joyce, as I’m pretty set in the OF with Starling Marte, Adam Jones, Jay Bruce, and George Springer. I’ve been platooning Joyce to help me with HR. Any recommendations? Thanks.

      for his next 2 starts .

      and hope you don’t miss too many of his starts vs righties .

    • Brendan says:
      (link)

      @Brendan:
      Turns out the waiver claim wouldn’t be processed until Sunday, meaning I would miss out on his start tomorrow. Still pick him up for the rest of the season, or wait until he becomes a free agent tomorrow, assuming no one else puts a waiver claim in? I feel as if I won’t be holding on to Buchholz, Estrada, Smyly, and Chavez for the whole season, as one or more will probably falter. I probably have the least patience with Chavez, due to his poor career numbers, and Buchholz, because he hasn’t been that great and I don’t really like him as a player, and the most patience with Estrada, because I need the K’s and he seems consistent, and Smyly, because I’m a Tigers fan, loved him in the bullpen so far in his career, and he seems like a major sleeper. I could also pick up someone like Rick Porcello instead of Haren. I don’t have the strongest pitching staff to begin with, and with Fister and Iwakuma coming off the DL, I’m going to have to start losing pitchers at some point.

    Hey Grey,

    Sorry if this is a repeat, but just thought i’d throw out a comment/suggestion. the Buy/Sell is one of my faves, but for smaller leagues (and even big leagues) it would be cool to see a few higher profile names on the list that present a good buy opportunity.

    AKA. Prince Fielder, Gyrko, etc. Guys who are starting slow that you expect a turnaround for.

    Thanks for listening!

        @Grey: He’s likes hanley, verlander, and kazmir? Go for it?

        If I could try and maybe renegotiate the the third spot, what order would you put these pitchers: Masterson, Chavez, Kazmir, Tillman

        Note: I will most likely be platooning Brad Miller and D. Gordon in the SS hole because I have Altuve in the 2B. Trusting you on the Brad Miller play.

    Grey… I am in a dynasty point league where there is a huge scoring tilt in favor of pitching.

    You do this trade?

    Give Ventura, Melancon
    Get Bruce, LuCroy.

    I am leaning toward no as Bruce’s K-rate makes him less valued and Ventura could be a stud and kept at a bargain price for future years. LuCroy is an upgrade but not by much. Thoughts?

Kind of a steep price but I’ll still have Tanaka, Teheran, Alex Wood, Cingrani, Wily Peralta, Martin Perez, Pineda and Cosart at SP. With Zimmer and Stephenson in my minors so giving up price won’t hurt too much hopefully.

    The buysellatops has George Springer’s rest of season value in the top 25 way above guys like Bryce Harper. Still got some tweaking to do, or have their values changed that much already?

    • It’s ranked based on rest of season $ minus season-to-date. Springer’s been negative value to date since he’s barely played. Rank by Rest of Season $ and you’ll see he’s further down the list.

      • Dave says:
        (link)

        @Rudy Gamble:

        Sorting by Rest of Season $, I see Springer at $22.6 and Harper at $16.5. The top 10 look pretty similar to preseason ranks with Trout, Cabrera and Braun at the top.

        • You’re right. The projections other than AVG look pretty nice for Springer. It’s easier to see in the ROS Player Rater (http://razzball.com/playerrater-restofseason-12teamespn/) why he is ranked more valuable than Harper. His projected $SB is about $6 more than Harper. Given Harper hasn’t even touched 20 in a season yet and Springer has had high SBs in the minors, I can buy that. I think they are a push for power and agree w/ the Steamer-based projection that Harper is a better AVG play (Springer will K…a lot). The part that I’m not as sold on is R/RBI. I assume Springer stays in the top 4 of the lineup which should maximize whatever he can get with that lineup. Who knows where Harper will hit? It might sound crazy but I’d totally trade Harper for Springer and another useful player. Harper has ‘potential’ but he now has 2 years on the books and has yet to put an elite season together. Hope for Springer!

    I’ve read where you recommend Bauer over Kluber, but when he comes up is he rosterable over Salazar in a shallow 10 team ESPN league?

    Already picked up Chavez from streaming and I’m holding him for now, and I’m gripping loosely on Porcello (which sounds like a wood instrument between a cello and viola in size)

        @Grey: I’m with you on your Salazar blurb. Something doesn’t look right, and he is missing something from last year. I know you said the velocity is down, but he seems to be laboring more to get anything out of his pitches.

        I’m afraid to drop him though because I weathered the crap storm that was Jarod Parker last year, and finally dropped him only to watch him kill it second half for my friends team.

    I had Mujica because I though Uehera was dead, but now that he’s alive I want another pitcher. I have Uehera, Rodney and Santos in the pen, but closers are thin on the market. Pitcher wise I’m thinking of picking up Doolittle, Harang, Volquez, Bauer, Brothers, Henderson, Veras, Rondon, Fields, Qualls.

    Which side in this deal:

    1B – Davis
    2B – Miller
    3B – Longo
    SS – Hanley

    UTIL – Rizzo
    UTIL – Pedro
    BN – Arenado
    BN – Dozier

    H2H – H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OB+SLUG

    Obviously I can fill Rizzo’s spot with Springer, Arenado, Dozier. But Rizzo has been pretty solid while Myers has been bad, but I agree with the BUY on him, as I think he turns it around. Does this deal make me better in the long run this season?

    We can keep 4 people for up to two years – also have one franchise that gets kept forever, and that’s Jones for me.

    Re: horse comment in Young Jr. area

    This morning I put my son’s rocking horse by a dumpster. My father arrived later in the day to help with my move. He saw the rocking horse and said, “Smokey would probably like to f%@* that.” (Smokey is a 9-year old lab mix who humps a big stuffed animal gorilla.) I then told my father that it was Jayden’s rocking horse and I had just put it out there a few hours earlier. My father opted to put it in his truck. He will remove the horse from the rocking apparatus and let the dog go to town.

    You could say my 4-year old son donated his rocking horse to be used as a sex toy for a dog.

    I am trying to pry Myers from a man-crush owner. He wants Verlander even though I offered him Cueto. I am in a 6×6- 12 man + QS +OBP +SLUG
    My pitching staff is Ryu, Verlandish, Cueto, Ventura, Wacha, Iwakuma, Santana, Chavez
    OF Stanton, Werth, Melky, Springer, Austin Jackson, Granderson.

    Do I hold on Verlander or pull the trigger? Thanks wise one…

    Me quoting me form yesterday “In 10 team H2H league. I’d like to propose my Pujols, Melky and R. Soriano for his Goldschmidt. My other closers are Soria, Santos and Lindstrom so this trade could make this a real weakness for me.” You said go for Goldschmidt. Pujols continues to tear the cover off the ball tonight (2/4, 1 HR, 2 R, 3 RBI’s). I know its only been 24 hours but each day that goes by makes Pujols look like he could have a monster year. Any change in what you think?

      If it was me, I’d take it. I’m a huge Kluber fan and a card carrying member of the Corey Kluber Society (it’s a thing, look it up). I find chasing Saves to be far easier than finding a long-term SP option, and you won’t even need to consider that if Santos remains the closer.

    “Papa!”

    HAHA! – Freakin’ brilliant.

    Another buy – and why the hell not – is Jon Singleton. The Astros will be calling him up too any day now and dude just had his 6th HR, went 3-3 tonight, is hitting .361 with 20 RBI in something like 61 ABs with a 1.238 OPS. Qualifies at 1B. Dude recently named his bat “Mibong” and the symbiosis has taken hold. If he can continue to hit the ball like he hits the bowl there will be sticky sweetness to be had for the cost of dropping James Loney from your bench spot.

    • Moronymous Lohse says:

    Grey, I figured out the Masterson conundrum. You recently said if you hold onto him he’ll suck. If you drop him someone else will add him and he will be awesome for them. So, here’s the trick.

    1) Drop Masterson
    2) Wait and see if anyone adds him.
    3) If no one adds him then you grab him again the day of his next start.

    Fittingly, he goes out and pitches a great game. By this technique you trick the fantasy gods. You drop the bum so some other lucky stiff can grab him and throw him and reap the turn-around.

    With this technique YOU become the lucky stiff. Now it is time to look to trade him or to drop him again so you can stream Robbie Erlin on Sunday.

    Rinse and repeat.

    Grey looking for quick help…got a pretty good value offer but doesn’t match team needs in the least, WWGD?

    Kipnis/Thornburg for Fister/Cishek

    12 team mix OBP

    C Rosario
    1 Rizzo
    2 Cano
    3 Gyorko (Machado DL)
    S Segura
    O Bautista
    O Rios
    O Kemp
    D Cespedes
    B Taveras/Hosmer

    S Bailey
    S Teheran
    S Liriano
    S Fister
    S Walker DL
    S J Chavez
    S Lohse
    R Cishek
    R Santos
    R Kelley
    R Gregerson

    Two DL slots so things are about to get messy, I would lose my only legit closer lose pitching which I’m weak on. Gain a player where I have a first rounder. My UTIL is filled with Cespedes or Hosmer already and When Machado comes back I’ll have Gyorko for that slot as well. Obviously a terrible fit for my team but great value. What do you think?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Trade’s a terrible fit for your team, and Kipnis as a UTIL lowers his value… See if you can get something else, maybe a starter…

    @ Grey :

    got a hot streak going @ Beat the Streak ,
    but am taking a “pass” today because reyes
    is coming back today , and , at the top of the order ,
    will prolly mess with melky’s karma .

        heck no .
        but , melky and yadier were my picks for today ,

          @costaricanchata:

            @Grey:

            from the start , i expected a huge year
            for elvis (top 3 SS) ,
            would certainly help if prince decided to hit .

            elvis has bulked up in each of the past 2 seasons ,
            but it doesn’t seem to be slowing him down , this year … thus far .
            i suspect some might over-look his age .
            sooner or later that power is going to come ,
            but Wash will keep him at the top of the order ,
            as long as he continiues to steal bases .

    Hi Grey

    I’m in a 12 team mixed H2H dynasty league with 40 man rosters (32 MLB/8 MiLB) –
    No contracts or $ values.

    This past offseason I traded away my minor league talent for reliable vets for a
    run at a championship. It’s a little early for trading but I just received an offer
    where:
    I trade Wil Myers for Pence & Dahl

    I’ve got mixed feelings – Myers could be a beast but Pence is pretty good and Dahl
    could be a top-15 prospect by the end of the year.

    Which side do you prefer in a dynasty? Would I be selling low on Myers? Hold or
    pull the trigger?

        One other question. Time to grab and stash Bauer? Weaker on the pitching side (lost Moore), other starters are Lester, Gray, Archer, Chavez, Jimenez, *D Holland. Better to swap Jimenez for Bauer or stop chasing saves with both Fields/Qualls and drop one of them. Other closers are T. Hunter and J. Johnson/Gregerson

    What are your thoughts on Justin Upton? I may have an opportunity to trade him for Weaver and Allen Craig. I don’t love either of those guys, but it seems like decent value. My pitching is struggling at the moment, but I don’t think it’s dead (Cobb, Minor, Anibal Sanchez, Archer, Tillman, Kluber, Odorizzi, Skaggs.).

      Walden came in for the 1 out save after Kimbrel loaded the bases and was pulled. I read he was hitting 98, so he may have been rusty. However, a bit odd he blows up after complaining of shoulder pain.

    Got this trade offer in one of my RCLs: give Jose Bats; get Starling Marte and Raphael Soriano. I don’t ordinarily like giving up whomever I perceive as the best player in a deal, and I especially tend to shy away from 2-for-1s, but, that said, I have a 12 in HRs and a 1 in both SBs and SVs (my team has 0 saves and Lindstrom is my only closer at the moment b/c I drafted Henderson, Jones, and Veras), so I’m considering accepting it. Am I crazy? I’d be dropping a benched Veras so NBD on that front. Please advise. And thanks.

    in 10 teamer with deep 10 man benches i’m getting worried about not having enough SP, since i’m losing K’s by so many. i have 8 (and am streaming 1 of those spots), currently they are
    tillman/cobb (DL)/porcello (low K)/gray/walker (DL)/hutchison/smyly/masterson/erlin (stream spot). we have 2 utils and 3 OF, every other position is 1 each (no CI or MI)
    mesoraco
    goldy/pujols
    miller/gyorko
    longo/arenado
    andrus/miller
    rios/jones/gordon/beltran/crisp/springer/EYJ
    other than possibly turning Smyly AND Erlin into stream spots (but only 5 adds per week, so really would rather hold Smyly to make sure that wasn’t just blip game) it appears i have too many OF. EYJ for steals only spot. Before Springer came up i was turning that spot into 9th SP. Anybody to drop if these SP are all out there (likely Arenado or OF)?

        @Grey: surprised to hear that about Smyly (based on one bad start) since he was ranked much higher than any of these others. i was about to drop Erlin (streamer only with good K rate hodgepadre) for willy P for monday’s vs SD start. guessing you’re buying that PIT pitching coach fixed Volquez then (Liriano/Burnett style). it had looked like mcallister and vargas were just getting very lucky from stats, i thought.

          @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: sorry, forgot to ask specifically, since it looks like i’ll need a 9th SP, which hitter is the drop. i’m guessing arenado, since i’ll pretty much never bench longo, and i do need gyorko and miller either as 2b or backup 2B/SS spots. Or it could be one of my OF (i have too many, but they are either all good) or EYJ (steals spot) or Springer (wait and see on upside).

        @Grey: nevermind that idea, somebody else grabbed him this morning. this league has K’s and net steals and OPS. stick with owings (and his near platooning start amounts currently, even though it’s with pennington) or go crawford/villar/hechavarria/ i’m guesing it’s crawford, since my biggest team weakness is average and OPS. Owings has good rate stats (not much power), but for some reason terrible counting stats.

    I waited to draft a catcher in a 1 catcher 12-teamer and ended up with Gomes.

    I’ve been scouting Pinto, and like the early returns. He also seems to be playing every day with both catcher and DH duties. He also seems to walk a good bit (a nice bonus in this OBP league).
    He reminds me a bit of Carlos Santana, that is when Santana could hit.

    Long story short, do you like Gomes or Pinto better at this point in a Roto format with OBP?

    is it time to quit the Cody Asche experiment? I feel like I should drop Asche for a more established name like Seager, who is currently on the wire.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Go with Seager

    is the mobile side going to be back up soon? l will click the ads tho if it helps you out peace and love peace and love.
    I was just offered anibel for Bruce that’s not enough right? I do need pitching but still.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d want Bruce… People were saying in the comments that they like the new mobile design better, what do you mean by up soon?

      • frankgrimes says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I’m on iPad mostly. It used to have option at bottom that said mobile version or something and that made it cleaner and no ads. It’s not a big issue I’m just OCD lol.
        Bruce and Jones are hopefully about to catch fire this week!

    @Grey: weekly roto, who do you like for next week? Peralta (vs sd, vs chc) or Chavez ( @ hou)?

      What does SON say? Wily

      • Herschel says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I’m not a SON expert, so when I look, it includes games for today (which Chavez pitched). Is there a way to do only next weeks games?

          You can sort by date by typing a date in… You can also sort by pitchers by typing pitchers name in blank above…

      • Tony Cingrani's Ego says:
        (link)

        @Grey: if you subbed gordan for brantley would you like longo side or would it be more fair?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yes, Longo side

    Would you rather have Rizzo at $4 or Segura at $9? I’m thinking Segura will be a bust this year.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Go Rizzo then

      @MB: the battle of who’s overperforming more. and who’s quickest to turn back into himself. Sort of like that game Altered Beasts, or Altered States.

    you see callaspo keeping starting gig? i’m about to drop almonte for him. in league with k’s and ops. i’m weak as shit as avg/ops/runs/k’s, and almonte is terrible at all of those except runs.

    Grey-

    I can grab Springer in a 12 team 5×5 roto with no bench, but would need to dump D Salazar to clear salary. My remaining staff would be:

    Homer
    Teheran
    Tanaka
    Kuroda
    Pineda
    Eovaldi
    Kenley
    K Rod

    I have to finally cut bait and do this, right? Is the remaining staff strong enough if I replace Salazar with a SAGNOF?

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @Hoosier Daddy: in H2H this might be a no, but Springer could end up being quite a bit more than a SAGNOF. Spring to it! with no bench it’s not like there aren’t good pitchers out there anyway.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Go for it

      • Tony Cingrani's Ego says:
        (link)

        @Grey: as high as you are on wong would you drop him for neil walker? homeboy has 6 bombs!

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @Tony Cingrani’s Ego: walker has had a LONG track record of being quite a bit worse than this.
