Yesterday, Alex Cobb‘s line was 8 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 12 Ks.  March Grey, “You’re welcome.”  April Grey, “Figures you show your face now.”  May Grey, “You know how much crap I took for you, March Grey?”  June Grey, “Seriously!”  All the Greys start yammering over each other.  March Grey, “Hey!  Hey!  Hey!  July Grey, defend me here!”  July Grey, “Don’t be too hard on him, Cobb was injured.  He has a 2.23 ERA in July.”  April/May/June Grey, “Shut up!”   March Grey, “What about the Ks, July Grey?  Tell them about those too.”  April Grey, “We don’t want to hear it!”  July Grey, “36 Ks in only 32 1/3 IP in July.  Oh, and in April his ERA was 1.89, so I have no idea what your problem is.”  April Grey, “Peer pressure.”  March Grey, “April Grey’s still in a daze from Dozier’s April.”  June Grey, “Yeah, April Grey, how’s Mike Morse doing too?”  April Grey, “You know what?  I’m hanging up now.”  May Grey, “Probably wants to check on his Brett Lawrie-led offense.”   So, Cobb hasn’t been dazzling all year like I expected, but his ERA is down to 3.54 on the year, his K-rate is 8.6, walk rate is 2.6 and his xFIP is 3.27.  Everything I liked about him in the preseason still stands.  March Grey, “That’s what I’m saying!  Now, are you sending the bail money or what?  This Nicaraguan prison sucks.  Greys?  Are you guys still there?”  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Ben Zobrist – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer.  Zobrist better check his iCal, he’s about four months late for Opening Day.

Matt Garza – 7 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 2 Ks.  Now has two straight great starts.  I considered streaming him here, but his 1/3 IP, 5 ER two starts ago was stuck in my craw.  I might need to stream him for his next start vs. the Giants, so guess back to the crawing board.  Unless the crawing board is a 1/3 IP, 5 ER start.  I’ve painted myself in a corner of puns and idioms.  Help!

Trevor Bauer – 4 1/3 IP, 5 ER.  Hey, shady looking guy, will you watch my gin and tonic while I go to the bathroom?  *returns to drink*  This tastes like battery acid… *five hours later*  Wow, that was quite a nap.  I must’ve been out for at least 18 hours.  Hey, why is that guy trying on my arms?  Ah!!!  I’ve been roofied!

Nick Swisher – 2-for-4, 1 run.  That’s one hit for each side burn.

Mike Zunino – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 16th homer.  Keep that average below .220 and we’re gonna have ourselves a nice little sleeper.  Trust me, low averages scare away people.  “Thank God, they don’t scare you away!”  Shut up, Brad Miller.

Dustin Ackley – 3-for-5, 1 run, 2 RBIs, hitting over .400 in the last week.  About the hottest schmotato to come along Schmotato Lane since the last hottest schmotato to come along Schmotato Lane.

Hisashi Iwakuma – 7 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks.  Hisashi my dashi — slurp SLURP!

Jose Quintana – 6 IP, 2 ER, 11 baserunners, 2 Ks vs. Anibal Sanchez (6 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks).  In a matchup of No Name Value That You Should Own vs. Name Value That You Should Trade Away.  Score one for No Name Value.  Who?  I have no idea.  Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, kazoo.

Jose Abreu – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 31st homer.  The Grande Dolor!

Adam Dunn – 1-for-4 and his 16th homer.  The Grande Burro!  Hmm, Grande Burro is missing that It Factor.  The Grande Burrito, that’s better.

Conor Gillaspie – 3-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI.  Now has multiple hits in four of his last five games.  I need a bumper sticker, “My corner infielder is on the Conor roll.”

Adam Eaton – 3-for-5, 1 run.  Has hit in nine of the past ten games.  Eaton should’ve bashed his middle finger in months ago.  Slam a door on your foot while you’re at it, so we can get some steals.

Adam Jones – 1-for-5 and a first inning homer (20).  Bangfizzle!

Nick Markakis – 2-for-6, 3 RBIs and his 8th homer.  It’s hard to believe he once warranted the nickname Sparkakis.  How did he go from a 25-homer threat to Ben Zobrist’s Greek brother from a different mother and father, Zobriskakis?

Manny Machado – 2-for-6, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer.  I’m still stuckakis here.  Machado has nearly two hundred less at-bats than Markakis, struggled for half the time he has been playing this year and still is out-paceakissing him!

C.J. Wilson – Made his final rehab start and is set to rejoin the rotation this weekend.  Hair’s to you, kid!

Jered Weaver – 5 IP, 6 ER, 11 baserunners, 4 Ks.  If you thought my glee couldn’t get any more pronounced for a failing Weaver, Rudy just traded for him.  Better than his trade for Matt Cain two weeks ago, but hopefully not by much.

Josh Hamilton – 3-for-6, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer.  Oofa.  Markakis farts in Hamilton’s general direction.

Matt Cain – Headed to see Dr. Freeze.  That’ll turn out well.  Dr. Andrews’s office is like a Roach Motel for pitchers.  Only much nicer furniture and Matt Moore works reception.

Gerrit Cole – Threw his first rehab start, and is probably one more rehab start away from rejoining the Pirates rotation.  Here’s hoping, since it’s been almost a month since the last time I was disappointed by him.

Starling Marte – Won’t return when eligible on Wednesday.  He passed concussion tests, but when the barista at Starbucks wrote his name Farte, he laughed for ten minutes straight and the Pirates sent him for more tests.

Francisco Liriano – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 11 Ks.  I streamed Liriano yesterday in our ‘pert RCL.  Booyakasha!  He’s also only owned in 31% of ESPN leagues and 50% of all RCL leagues, so it wasn’t just my league where he was available.  I tell you this like an uncle that pretends he’s your friend — a fruncle — that you really should be looking at streaming.

Josh Harrison – 1-for-3 and his 8th homer and third in as many games.  Okay, you’re hot as dog balls, I get it.  You can calm down now.  Please and thank you.

Travis Snider – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer, and his third homer in as many games.  Once Marte, or Farte if you’re sipping lattes with him, returns, Snider’s playing time will be squeezed like his cigarette pack rolled in a sleeve of a too-tight t-shirt.

Michael Morse – 1-for-4 and his 15th homer.  April Grey, “That’s what I’m talking about!”

J.P. Arencibia – 4-for-5, 7 RBIs and his 5th and 6th homers, hitting .183.  Now has four homers in the last week, and could be a short-term schmotato for power.  He’s only one year removed from a 16-homer half a season (of course, he also hit .221 during that span (not Denard; crap how many parentheticals am I inside of here?)  Hmm, no, one more).

Shin-Soo Choo – 0-for-5.  When my Buy/Sell columns pass the trade deadlines, I just start telling you guys to drop in the Sell.  Wanna get a jump on things?  Do the Choo drop, which is also a dance move that happens when you try to play off a huge sneeze in front of a girl you like.

Alex Rios – 3-for-5, 2 runs, hitting .305 with four homers on the year.  I only point that out because I like to torture myself.  Mark Whiten hit that many homers in one game!  “Damn skippy!” said Mark Whiten as he sat in his kiddie pool wearing water wings and holding four baseballs in one hand.

Brett Gardner – 4-for-5, 3 runs and his 13th homer, and 3rd in two games.  Now comfortably in front of Jacoby Ellsbury (and Ryan Braun and Yasiel Puig and a ton of players) on our Player Rater and nearly a top ten outfielder overall.  Can’t say I didn’t plant the seed that Gardner could be great.

Mark Teixeira – 1-for-2, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 18th homer.  This was his first start back from a day-to-day back spasm megillah, which was also the name of Magilla Gorilla’s yarmulke-wearing brother.

Carlos Beltran – 2-for-5, 1 run, 2 RBIs and slowly raising the Zombino flag since the All-Star break, showing there’s still something left in the tank, after you blow all the dust out of it.

Jay Bruce – Left the club on the bereavement list.  Maybe he’s mourning the loss of his fantasy value.

Todd Frazier – 2-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI and his 16th steal.  How could Diane Chambers not pick this guy?

Mike Leake – 7 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 8 Ks.  Only owned in 22% of leagues (37% of RCL leagues), and has a 7 K/9, a sub-2 BB/9 and a 3.36 xFIP.  Even if you want to ignore all of that, the Stream-o-Nator likes Leake’s (almost stutterer!) next start, and I’d run him out there for it.

Jimmy Rollins – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 14th homer, hitting .239.  His option for next season for $11 million vested recently.  In honor of it, the Phils gave him a vest that deflects thrown batteries.

Grady Sizemore – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer for the Phils, and 3rd on the year, hitting .314 on the Phils.  Even better, the Phils didn’t need to wrap a rubber band around him and submerge him in a bucket of water to break him in.

Chase Utley – 1-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 9th homer.  Must’ve been #tbt(uesday).

Cole Hamels – 8 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA down to 2.55.  He’s been downright nasty from the bump.  Maybe that’s why Spooners call him, Hole Camels.

Dillon Gee – 6 2/3 IP, 5 ER, 8 baserunners, 2 Ks.  Gee, not cool.  After his previous two games where he was shellacked by the Padres and Brewers, something might be wrong with him physically.  A Disgraceful List stint could be in his future.  Even if not, you need to look elsewhere.  His upside is about as exciting as the emotion conveyed when you say his last name, so he’s not worth this stress.  Gee, lates.

Troy Tulowitzki – Underwent a needling procedure on his hip.  Tulo laid on a table and his fantasy owners stood above him, criticizing his inability to stay healthy and his panache for wearing socks with flip-flops.  Okay, I’m not sure about the flip-flops, but whenever I see someone wearing socks with flip-flops I think they look like a Polish immigrant.

Josh Rutledge – Missed another game with an upper respiratory illness.  His lungs are conspiring against him in the back alleys of a very shadowy Austria under the pseudonym, Phlegm Fatales.

Justin Morneau – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs as he was activated from the DL.  Kevin in ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “Get him in your lineup or don’t, I’m playing in a Razzball commenter fantasy football league!”  (Seamless segue fin.)

Emilio Bonifacio – 4-for-7, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  I grabbed Emily Boneface when Tulo went down and, damn, that’s depressing.  But Boneface has been decent (for him).

Jason Heyward – Due back today or tomorrow from his lower back soreness.  Ryan Doumit (0-for-3, hitting .193) started yesterday in his place.  When the Braves signed the DH/terrible catcher/awful outfielder Doumit, I said I didn’t understand it, but I am but a wee blogger.  The Braves are paying people millions of dollars to be smarter than me.  Which brings me to my point, what the eff were they thinking?

Tommy La Stella – 3-for-4, 1 run, hitting .296.  His lack of power and speed make him a poster child for Forty-Twenties.  That poster is partially obscuring The Cure and Alf posters.  Someone really needs to redecorate.

Freddie Freeman – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer, hitting .285.  Freeman doesn’t need to give me forty acres and a mule, but I’d love 25 homers.

Josh Beckett – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER.  I’m guessing he’s still hurt.  I’m also guessing there’s someone better on waivers in your league.  I’m a good guesser!

Matt Kemp – 3-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 9th and 10th homers.  Kemp, don’t sweat all the Jon Lester talk.  You’ll get your chance sometime soon to jump ship, I promise.

Yasiel Puig – 4-for-5, 2 runs.  And no walls ran into or pine tar drawn-on mustaches to tease Mattingly.  I gotta say, it was a good day.

Mike Napoli – Out with a swollen finger.  His doctor said, “Your finger is nearly as large as your mother’s areolas.”

Rubby De La Rosa – 6 IP, 3 ER, 11 baserunners, 1 K.  Only mentioning him because people will be like, “Grey, Fantasy Master Lothario, I wish I could spread your ‘stache on my bagel and eat it all up.  Now, onto my question, what do you think of Rubby?”  Actually, that same person won’t even read this and just ask anyway.  Damn, my logic turned down a cul-de-sac.  Any the hoo!  I don’t like Rubby outside of streaming and AL-Only leagues.

Xander Bogaerts – 2-for-4 and his 8th homer.  For Bogaerts, God put his lips together and blew that ball out of the park.

Dustin Pedroia – 2-for-4, 1 RBI.  Seemed to hit rock bottom last week, but has been hitting well recently.  Weird it took him that long to hit rock bottom.  Doesn’t have that far to fall.

Marcus Stroman – 7 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA down to 3.03.  Usually I point out how terrible Kershaw’s ERA was his first year to say to ignore young starters that are struggling.  Here, I point it out to say how good can Stroman get in a few years if he has a 3.03 ERA now?  Rhetorical!

Colby Rasmus – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 14th homer, hitting .223.  His OBP is .285.  His Magic Eight Ball says Fourth Outfielder on the Yanks in Two Years and Out of Baseball in Four Years.  His Magic Eight Ball used a really small font to fit all of that.

Everth Cabrera – 1-for-4 as he returned from the DL.  EverCab took four weeks to return from his hamstring strain and he’s batting .218.  So, that’s the difference performance-enhancing drugs make!

Yangervis Solarte – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 2nd homer on the Padres, and 2nd in three games.  He was batting third yesterday, which is so pitiful I’m sad emoticoning into my pillow since he couldn’t even stay on the Yankees, but that aside, he is hitting right now.

Jedd Gyorko – 2-for-3, 1 RBI.  He’s hitting .500 since he’s returned from the DL.  (Baby steps.)

Henderson Alvarez – 7 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks.  Has this guy ever thrown a non-Quality Start?  And shut up with your fancy Google, I could look it up too but I chose not to.  He has never thrown a non-Quality Start.  Ever.  So there!

Yoenis Cespedes – 3-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI and his 3rd steal.  The Human Cespedes is quietly having a very productive season (top 20 outfielder on the Player Rater).  I’m happy for him.  Lowercase yay.  Did that seem happy?  Oh, well.  But (you knew a but was coming) he’s being carried a bit on fantasy value like a 2013 Matt Carpenter.  Hitting in the middle of the A’s lineup this year is like being in one of those phone booths where they blow money around, only the A’s are blowing around counting stats.  Grab as many as you can!

Coco Crisp – Out until at least Friday.  In the mean time, Billy Burns has speed, will travel, until Crisp stops Waylon and Smithers Burns’s playing time.

Josh Reddick – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 6th homer.  Let me guess, you were voted Most Likely To Succeed and someone X’ed out ‘ceed’ and added in Josh’s last name and now you’re scarred?  Get over it and grab him!

George Springer – Took batting practice for the first time on the DL, and Astros manager Bo Porter added, “(Springer) was able to throw and do a little shagging.”  Oh, behave!

Chad Qualls – 2/3 IP, 5 ER, as he got smashed around by the A’s hitters.  Last week, Jeff Luhnow, Astros GM, said they won’t trade Qualls, saying they need more Qualls.  The A’s would conquer that.  Oops, I meant concur.

Danny Santana – 2-for-5, 2 runs, hitting near-.350 in the last week and has been hitting ever since he came off the DL and is now batting leadoff.  Want more?  Um…uh…Dah!  You don’t get more.

Kyle Gibson – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks.  His K-rate is below 5.  That’s laughably bad.  Not laugh-out-loudably bad, apparently.

Stephen Strasburg – 7 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA down to 3.55.  Better than his most recent bleh starts, but yesterday’s start is such a meh start.  I want more than meh.  Turn that meh upside down and hew me something wonderful!  (Then I’ll put it on Etsy and Pinterest the crap out of it!)

Jayson Werth – Didn’t start yesterday after twisting his ankle the day before.  Could’ve been much worse if he didn’t have his ankle wrapped in a massive foot beard.

    Both K(Ch)ris Davis’ should just go by K Davis because thats all they do! And I own both! And Ryan Howard! Drop K Davis for Reddick? Prob not advised- I’ll hold. I need Howard at CI and Adam Dunn only shizz on waivers, better production but he just a whiter, wider Howard.

    Grey, you always talk about streaming pitchers, and punting on pitching in your draft. are you in any leagues that have a max number of moves for the season? In a league that does have max moves, does it change your Draft strategy on pitchers at all??

    • @ElBoss: I was actually curious about a similar question where transactions cost additional money towards the pot ($2.00 per each add).

    • JeF With 1 F says:

      @ElBoss: League settings obviously affect streaming…hes basically advising on standard settings unless you tell him otherwise.

      @ElBoss: does it move all your pitchers ADP’S up?? I get 32 moves a season and always flirt with going overboard, this season was particularly bad with what feels like a ton of extra injuries. Thanks prince fielder, Josh hamilton, Michael wacha, Michael pineada, crappy start to the season Liriano, takin shits on the field Brad Miller!!! And a big FU to Evan Longoria!!! As you can tell by the sound of my team in this 14 team league I am outside the playoff circle trying to scratch my way in!!! Streamer of the day folks!!!! Brett Anderson!!! What you think Grey??

      • ElBoss says:
        (link)

        @ElBoss: The real questions are would your ADP for pitchers change all together and would you then be more likely to grab a top pitcher in your draft??

      @ElBoss: In weekly deep leagues, you need top pitchers… In max move leagues, you also need top pitchers

    Grey et al,

    Nice stuff, man. A few underwhelming performances for me yesterday (Shields and Quintana) but Iwakuma and Cobb made them irrelevant.

    Have Cole in 3 leagues and am expecting good things until the end of the season from him, maybe he takes me back to the promised land.

    Are you buying or selling Tulo’s return by mid-August? His return would be gr8 for the stretch run.

    Cheers,
    Ante

    14 Team ESPN 5×5 Roto
    Currently in 3rd and am Top 2 in batting, but middle of the road pitching. Was floated this deal: His Cliff Lee for my Matt Carpenter. It looks fair to me but don’t know if it helps me that much over just streaming another pitcher. My starting pitching staff is:

    Hamels
    Bailey
    Archer
    Wheeler
    Stroman

    I don’t have another 3B as Zimmerman is on DL now so I moved Carpenter to cover. Thanks!

    Gee was okay yesterday. Gave up 2er (both solo home runs) after six innings and Edgin gave up a grand slam in the 7th. I agree that he’s not as good as before the DL stint, but I still think there’s value for him as a streamer, especially at home.

    Speaking of roofied…

    Few years ago in college, at a local University of Florida bar, my buddy stole a pitcher of beer from some shady looking characters. After sharing that pitcher, our friends apparently had to come pick us up because we couldn’t walk straight. They somehow lost my buddy but ended up taking me back home. Fast forward a few hours, I wake up in bed with a girl I just started dating (apparently I was good because…well, I asked) and my buddy woke up in a bush outside of the bar….Roofied!!

  17. de nachos says:
    (link)

    In finishing Hamels’ blowout, Ken Giles looked nasty again. Fastball 95-99. Even better, he threw three straight sliders for strikes (swinging K to Wright, first two looking to Campbell), huge since his 2012 minors report called the pitch “poor”. The hit he gave up to Carpenter was on a rookie-looking-pissed-off-I-didn’t-get-the-previous-pitch-for-called-strike-three hanger. Move Pap Now! – to close somewhere please, since I’m double-dipped on these two in several leagues.

    • tvators says:
      (link)

      @de nachos: I think Paps is pretty much unmovable, next yr plus easy vesting option, he is owed a ton of dough, is a douche and only approve a trade to a team he’d be the closer on….. what team needs a closer, can take on his god awful contract and mouth… But I was at the game and stayed to watch giles and he was nasty

      • Moscowitz says:
        (link)

        @tvators: I dont know…i think people are pretty fast in their judgement. Why is Paps a douche? Because he is not willing to sell himself out? Because he doesnt want to be anything less than a Closer? Because he has a contract and wants everyone to act according to that contract? What really is the problem with him? He has been a heck of a closer for years, he is a heck of a closer now, he knows his own value and doesnt want to be sold as anything less than that. Nothing wrong with that.

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      tvators hit the the major points here. Who knows what will happen but he’s got a lot stacked against them trading him. Giles is nasty though. Only 23 too I believe.

    Oh yeah, can you explain what has happened to Soria? He was a rock solid closer for me in Texas…then Detroit picks him up…demotes him to set-up…and now we have this:108 ERA, 18 WHIP.

      hard to say. Fate’s reasons make sense though

    • Moscowitz says:
      (link)

      @Head Down: This is mismanagement at its best. You trade for Soria, then you let him close. period. Nathan has been awful and i think he simply doesnt have much more left in the tank. Now they are making Soria to a mental case who simply doesnt understand his own situation. This Ausmus guy reminds me of Dusty…he has no feel for the players and what they are capable of. As example Anibal is not right this year, its obvious, he needs to be managed, he needs to get pulled after 6 and this ausmus guy constantly let him go back in for the 7th and he gets hit hard. Sanchez this year seems to lack concentration, composure and the mental and perhaps even the physical readiness to go deep in to games.

    Are you holding Soria anymore after his 2 crappy outings neither of which have been in a save situations?

    Options are Matt Lindstrom stash
    Qualls who looked like hot trash last night
    or speculation on trade like Giles or Rex Brothers

    Thanks in advance.

    • can't fight fate says:
      (link)

      @2 Cups 1 Braun: I dropped Giles today, cause I really do not believe anyone needs a closer unless someone blows out their arm today or tomorrow. Colorado is not trading Hawkins (at least according to the latest reports) Lindstom really did nothing to deserve the job, but Ventura might give it to him, he is probably your best bet. If you got space on DL I would get him. Still would give Soria a few more outings though.

    • can't fight fate says:
      (link)

      @2 Cups 1 Braun: If you are gonna chance it,for the trade deadline, maybe Ziegler if the D’Backs trade Reed, or whoever replaces Benoit, might be Thayer, might be Quackenbush.

    14 teamer 6×6 K/9 with a thin waiver wire for pitching. Just wondering if you’ve lost all faith in Eovladi yet. SON loves his next start ($12.6) going up against Bailey, but he hasn’t shown me anything in the past month that warrants this.

    Streamer options would be Shoemaker, Hellickson, Anderson, Vogelsong, Roenis Elias,

    (link)

    So this past weekend I had to be in BFE central PA, and decided to take the family to a minor league game. The nearest team? Your Reading Fightin’ Phils! It was actually a fun game (how many of you can say you’ve seen Bryan LaHair hit an honest-to-god triple in person?) and a nice park, but just as the Fightins are minor league versions of the Phillies (i.e., old and terrible–Jake Fox was DH!), their fans are less-polished versions of Phillies fans. Next to us in our row were two drunk dads and their daughters, who opened the proceedings by showing up late and then pulling some tough guy ish with my wife, who was on the end of the row and holding a baby, because they mistakenly thought we were in their seats (because they are illiterate…ready for the callup to Citizens Bank, fellas!). On the one hand, I felt bad for their kids. On the other, those were some dumb kids. One kept trying to talk to me about the baby and it was like trying to hold a conversation with Sloth from the Goonies. And this girl was like 12.

    Anyway, the Rollins blurb made me think of this game, because I brought up the battery throwing when explaining to my wife why the minor league Phils fans are violent rednecks who should not be trusted.

    6×6 (OPS), which bench OF you want? Bruce, Beltran or Reddick?

I was going to drop Gardner because I felt his skill set was more comparable to Pederson’s, but now he’s mashing and I’m not sure how I could drop him for a player with zero ML experience.

    Got a trade offered to me in my keeper league. I give up Jose Fernandez 10th rd and Springer 14th rd for Zack Britton (need a closer) Tyson Ross 15th rd, Jordan zimmerman no keeper value and Corey Dickerson 11th rd. My current OF is Puig, Mccutch, Springer, A Jackson. Current SPs. Are stroman, arrieta, kazmir thennnn latos, minor, peavy, miley, Worley, nelson, weaver. Whatcha think??

    • Mike

      Mike says:

      I’d keep Springer, especially 14th rd.

    Desperate for starting pitching. I’ve got Bumgarner, Gray, Smyly, Walker, Paxton, Locke, and Bauer. I also have Derek Holland in my DL spot in a 14-team 5×5 mixed league. I’m currently in talks to get Teheran for Altuve.

    I don’t have a back-up 2B. Would likely pick up Gennet or Danny Santana off waivers. I’d be sacrificing avg and some SBs but I’m hoping Marte, Segura, and Escobar will lessen the loss. Thoughts on taking Teheran for Altuve? Or is Altuve able to get a bigger return via trade? My lineup is as follows:

    C- Navarro
    1B- Abreu
    2B- Altuve
    SS- Escobar
    3B- Miggy
    OF- Marte
    OF- Gordon
    OF- CarGo
    UTY- Segura
    UTY- Seth Smith
    UTY- Chisenahll

    Last week I rolled the dice with Liriano, McCarthy and AJBurnett, and was rewarded (well, other than Burnett puking on himself for his second start against the Mets). This week McCarthy and AJ are out, and I am looking for advice on my last two starters:

    2-start Miley @CIN (SON $12.8), vKC ($6.5)
    Liriano @ARI $6.2
    Chen vSEA $10.5
    Niese vSF $8.5
    Minor @SD $17.8
    C.Anderson vPIT $5.7

    Leaning toward Miley and Liriano (hot hand). Minor has not looked good for a while (one good start all of July), although he is at SD. Not really sure why SON still loves him. Thoughts?

    • Mike

      Mike says:

      I’d lean with you. @SD is a nice match-up so it really depends on whether you trust Minor right now

    Would you dump Yelich for any of the following:

    Carter
    Harrison
    Wong
    Beltran
    Eaton

    I’ve been offered Aroldis Chapman and Kris Bryant ($1) for my George Springer ($12) in a H2H Keep-5 auction draft league. I’m trying to set myself up for the September playoffs, at which point Bryant might be up – and if he’s not, Javi Baez would be and I’d swap him out of my NA spot and put Bryant in. So worst case I stash Bryant over the winter and get a $1 mashing 3B and can spend my draft money on other needs (actually, worst case is he’s converted to OF). An inactive player would be taking up a spot on my roster until one of Bryant or Baez is called, however. What do you think?

    Supplemental information: My OF currently consists of Stanton, Puig, Billy Hamilton, Brett Gardner and Matt Holliday, w/ Springer on DL replacing one of the last two once he’s back. I could also probably get Franciso Liriano sent to me in the deal, though Grey seems to think of him more as just a streamer these days.

    I have two keeper league trades that are in the works and was wondering what you think. 12 team h2h league, counts r, hr, RBI, avg, slg., bb and sb for hitters, k’s, bb’s, era, whip, holds, qs and net saves.

    Trade # 1. My cano for his Altuve and Cobb. I’m light on steals and cano hasn’t had much power.

    Trade #2 my sonny gray for his Scherzer. In a vacuum I’d take gray every day, but I have Gray under team control for up to 7 years (Scherzer for 3, which is why guy is making this offer). I’m really only thinking two or 3 years ahead, but will gray pass Scherzer in the next year or two in terms of production and trade value?

    16 Team H2H – would you lose Gee for any of the following:

    Chase Anderson

      @Wilsonian: this could’ve changed to keuchel, he shut down a good offense again today in what i’m sure is so to be another string of great starts capped off of being shut down since porter will leave him in for 120ish pitches next time out, then 125 and so on till dude’s arm falls off. grab the stats while they are there.

Rasmus hit a homer about 8 rows short of where i sat. masterson was great once. we probably gave up like piscotty and a draft pick, maybe multiple draft picks.

    here we go with keuchel’s re coming out upon finding his wrist in useable condition party if he does well today against good offense during day game. there’s an acronym but it actually appears to take up more lines than what i just did. i mean in leagues smaller than 14.

    So I want to add Danny Salazar. I’m hopeful for ROS production. The problem is how. Pitching staff is,

    Price
    Darvish
    Tehran
    Sanchez
    A. Wood
    Minor
    Odorizzi
    Stroman
    deGrom

    Daily catagories H2H so a large staff works great. I am platooning Wong and Alcantara at 2b. If I cut one of them, who?

    If I cut a pitcher, who? Supposedly Minor has some mechanical issues he is working out and if he has a good outing against SD maybe he turn things around. All faith lost in Minor? deGrom seems like the lowest in the order. Salazar won’t last on waivers before his next start.

    hey look my name is Prez!! on my computer… i was so excited last time i used this.. so nice using a computer instead of my phone where if you go past 5 comments in one convo the words
    are
    like
    this
    and
    you
    have
    to squint
    your eyes..

    i watched razzball radio (yeah thats cool, watch a radio show) and poor nick… i feel his pain tho! he said “im a great drafter” and you immediately started crackin up… ur in LAST place mr draft savant! *facepalm*

    also if there are going to be more than 3 fresh faces on the avi’s friday, you have to promote this. although im sure some people rather not do it.. and wont. it needs to be promoted by you so people will be like “yesss grey master greyy anything you say greyy yesss”. jack has already been semi endorsing it on twitter, but who gets on twitter? i would say you should change yours but remember last time you did that? outrage! any the who, im out til tomorrow. peace biotches!

    I tried to post a image of brett favre being chased out of the pocket by a huge white man… the caption was going to say “live look in of me chasing nacho for 11th place”. but couldnt post it. it was funny… laugh, damnit! thank you… bye.

      @Prez!!: you can be a great drafter and not do well. if you’ve heard all of the podcast’s you’ll have heard Grey make fun of Nick at least 3-4 times this year for simply leaving players doing really badly in starting spots many weeks after it’s smart to drop them, simply to being too busy to look over his free agent guys. one league esp it’s very lucky based due to injuries.

    In a keeper league, would you trade Scherzer (costing a 1st round pick next year) for Polanco (25th) and Cole (24th)? My team is out of contention and I’m trying to acquire assets for next year. Thanks.

      what does it mean ??

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @costaricanchata: it’s when Gareth posts three times in a row. only weird thing, is if he actually gets the timing right it should set off an infinite regress. i.e. G4, G5, etc.

      • Prez!! says:
        (link)

        @costaricanchata: he was always posting back to back to back (when he could have just put it all in one) every time so jack off came up with the g3. now its not right unless he posts 3 straight times.

        @Grey: nice. just read something about how the players association was grilling CUBS putting n.ramirez down. and suddenly he’s “injured”. good for CUBS. they have every right to run their team the way they damn well please. give him some rest if they want. and if some union decides to give you shit use the system to hide in plain sight. Eventually the whole idea of “DL’ing” a guy will be done by objective, independent league mandated doctors, not just the whims of a team doing what it wants to do.

    how high has kluber and rizzo climbed in their value for a keeper league? i own both (loving it).

    as far as 1st basemen go, where does Rizzo rank among them. 4th? or too optimisitc

    as far as kluber. he’s $16 to keep. i’m thinking an offseason Miggy ($39) and kluber ($16) for chris sale ($17) and michael brantley ($10) as far as no injuries insue. i’d have goldy and rizzo both for $10 to keep so Miggy and his 1b eligibility next year means nothing to me.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      4th sounds about right… I’d take the Brantley side

    man why does alex wood play these mind games with me. i picked up Ervin, want stroman in a keeper, and just dropped alex wood.

    is it still ervin>alex wood> stroman if it’s a keeper league

    • Q says:
      (link)

      @pickleball: I’d think Ervin is last of those in a keeper league. His contract is only 1 year, right? Who knows where he’ll be next year?

      • pickleball says:
        (link)

        @Q: true. thing is i’m pretty sure i have 7 better keepers than either of those guys anyway. so it’s more so ‘playing defense’ on other teams in the league. (not allowing them to grab them for a keeper) or grab them and deal them before next year– something i’ve found to be quite effective every year

    • Grey

      Then it doesn’t matter it’s a keeper… Play for this year, Ervin…

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: 2.same league,it’s a dynasty. i have both zunino/norris. but don’t plan on keeping 2 out of 25 players as catchers. plus with hammel/beckett looking really bad lately, changing what i thought was decent staff (for 20 teamer)
      hahn/darvish/beckett/wily p/hammel/holland (DL). i’m assuming i should shop norris since he doesn’t really play as often as normal catcher and for future i don’t know if that changes. at least zunino is massive prospect and is starting catcher. what level of pitcher is appropriate to ask for if i move norris?

    NL only, give beckett one more chance at not being shitty, before dropping him for c.anderson? feels like shit to watch some dude just ahead of me in standings reap rewards of picking up liriano (drafted by me as my ace, along with bailey) and holding him since early june. don’t want to see somebody else get rich off me since it’s not like these pitchers are just laying around out there. others include b.anderson/cahill/kendrick/fausto carmona/wada/nuno/e-jax/flande. really should i hold beckett over all of those for now? anderson just seems best.
