Even though I’m recommending Mike Moustakas this week, I still can’t help but booooo! him. Honestly, all Royals hitters this year, except Alcides Escobar, gets the booooo! treatment from me. I’m starting to feel like I’m a Philadelphia resident with my booing of these players regardless of what they do. [Jay's Note: Needs more Duracell.] Even Alex Gordon has turned into boresville in my book. I’m going to take a moment and shred the Royals, who regardless of their recent run in real baseball, have been a fantasy train wreck. Eric Hosmer has been unable to build on last seasons breakout and has become the Midwest’s version of James Loney. Billy Butler can’t channel those moobs for power like he did in the past and will struggle to hit 10 HR’s this year. Norichika Aoki has been a dud of a lead-off hitter after Alex Gordon created a blue print in KC, and for all of his 14 dongs, Salvador Perez has not been the .290 hitter we all wanted to see. The naysayers can state that Hosmer was a line drive hitter with a very un-homerun swing, Billy Butler is a fatter version of Hosmer, Aoki was more of a pipe dream than a lead-off man, and that Sal has never got over the loss of his abuelita. Well screw you Royals! I will never draft another offensive player from this team again. You are all dead to me….in fantasy! Speaking of fantasy, have you signed up for a Razzball Football RCL League yet? Get on the good foot and shimmy over to the football side and sign-up? Click here and let all your fantasy football dreams come true… which of course is winning a bobble-head of yourself (and a Best Buy gift card is up for grabs if you create a league!). Buying one is just straight weird, but winning one is perfectly acceptable and very cool.

I hate 7.3% owned Mike Moustakas, not personally of course, but in this virtual passion filled world of fantasy we come to as an escape from our wives, families, and any other humans who keep us in their circles. Hey, this sounds a lot like a validation for porn. The Moose or popularly known here as MostSuckAs* has been as frustrating as your first bra strap failure. He’s never lived up to the hype, has shown flashes of kick-ass awesomeness, and has also led a new group of some hybrid Donkey types I like to call a donkling. A donkling is not a full Donkey because they wont hit enough dongs, yet have all the promise and talent to be a dong smashing Mendoza marauder. This week I’m thinking this donkling does his best Donkey impersonation like he did a few weeks back. Over a four day stretch he went 6 for 17 with 3 HR’s. He opens the week with one game against the Twins and newly recalled right handed prospect Trevor May who got lit up in his first game and also handed out 9 free passes. After the one game against the Twins he moves down to everyone’s favorite launching pad Coors Canaveral where the Coors Correction makes everyone Bichetter! Granted he gets to face two lefties and the Royals may elect to go with Christian Colon, but the risk is worth it to have him on your team. If I was you I would add Colon for the Colorado series and the only reason I didn’t open with that is I want to make people are reading this. In the minors this year Colon did not put up eye popping numbers but what he did do was made me a batty call believer. Against left-handed pitching Colon batted .337 with an ISO of .224 an OPS of .926 and to top it off he had a wOBA of .372. Oh, you so sexy Colon! WTF? Who said that? Moustakas closes the week at the Rangers and that hot dry Texas air. He get’s three right-handers and that’s what we want to see. A couple of dong diggity’s is a real possibility this week and the Hitter-Tron agrees ranking him 50th for the WEEK! If you can keep him rostered through the uncertainty of the line-up in Colorado then you could end up with a spectacular week.

Bonus Creeper

Christian Colon (0.1%) is a must add for the Royals two games at Coors this week. Like I mentioned above, he friggin’ kills lefties and gets two at Colorado and even if he doesn’t play 3rd he might see a start at 2nd. He’s a two day batty call so bring some flowers. Jonathan Schoop (3.6%) would be amazing if he played everyday. If you see he’s in the lineup then you need to get him in. Grey told you to buy him on Friday and I’m here to remind you of potentially one of the better batty call creepers down the stretch. HEEEEEEE”S BAAAAAAACK….Avisail Garcia returned yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. He’s 2.4% owned and you better jump on him like Billy Butler on a free buffet. Lastly, if you need some SAGNOF go grab Jordon Schafer (2.7%). He’s stolen 6 bags in 26 AB’s over the last two weeks which is third most over that time or if he’s gone check out Jarrod Dyson (7.2%) who has also stolen 6 bags over the last two weeks doing his in 24 AB’s. I like them both to keep this up to close out the season.  It’s time for me to get into the Football writers draft and I’ll see you all Tuesday for the RCL roundup!

    14 team keeper league and I’m in the hunt this year – got offered a package with Teheran and Wood for Felix. Would also get a closer and likely a small upgrade in bat. It obviously would help now but going forward, who would you rather have? Teheran/Wood as late rounders of Felix as a 4th?

      @J Boy: @J Boy: id go for the win this year. Seems fair in a keeper

    Would you go Butler, Moustakas or Reddick this week for util spot?

    • J-FOH says:

      @Dirtyd: butler if he plays first in Colorado series

    Odorizzi or Gallardo rest of season? I like Odorizzi, but has tough schedule down stretch.

    Thanks!

      @Jerry: Gallardo

    SON likes Masterson tomorrow but it feels risky… would you rather stream Masterson, Colon, or Hendricks?

    We have our untouchables. Jeter will be booed in NY before Utley gets booed in Philly. Utley and Brian Dawkins could piss on the Rocky statue wearing Cowboys jerseys and still draw a standing O. With bra strap failure, reddit life hacked what I discovered on my own at 25 that removing a bra lefty is easier. Did I say 25? I meant 15…um, like bags of sand…can we just play fantasy sports now?

    Schafer over D Peralta? Chase Anderson for his two-start or keep rolling with McHugh?

    • J-FOH says:

      @de nachos: Utley is different, he is such an a**hole that the people of Philly view him as one of their own. It’s like on the Walking Dead when they would put the zombie blood on themselves so they would blend in and no get attacked. There is some greasy Philly blood in his hair gel.

      Shafer if you need the bags, Peralta can do more different things with less speed.

      don’t like the Nats start

    I am in 2nd place and I need to win this week to lock up a bye. With Wright’s play uncertain this week, do you like MostSuckAs, Headley, (6 games), Castellanos (7 games) or I can pick up Wong or Gyorko and put Carpenter to 3B. Thanks for all your help.

        @J-FOH: Specificity you will not give, Carpet Jedi.

        • J-FOH says:

          @Kid A: depends on needs, no specifics on cats to attack so no way to specify who to play just best two one for power one for speed.

    Would you drop JJ Hardy for Colon (to start the week?) I got Hardy in the lineup while Hanley is on the DL., hopefully he’s back next Sunday….

    Also, I got an OF logjam (3OF spots plus 2 UTIL) and need to figure out who to drop in my 12-team ROS daily keeper league with OBS and SLG…I already tried trading a few this week, but nobody took the bait, and, with the passing of my trade deadline, need to figure out who (if I drop a pair, ¿’whoses’?) will be getting the boot:

    Bruce
    Braun
    Cespedes
    Corey Dickerson
    Avisail Garcia
    Arismendy Alcantara (2B and OF elgible)
    Pollock (hopefully back from the DL soon)
    Rymer Liriano

    After Kolten Wong, my next highest SB leaders are Hanley (12) and Braun/Bruce tied with 11, which is why I’m hoping Pollock will come back and help, the question being if his upside is higher than Rymer’s? They are both playing on subpar offenses so I don’t know how to distinguish/rank them.

    The other idea is to just wait for someone to inevitably get hurt, but I don’t like that type of pessimistic thinking and imagine I can find someone on the waiver wire to bolster my pitching counting stats in the meanwhile. Whomever I drop is with the playoffs in mind, because unless I take a complete nosedive, I should make the playoffs.

    Appreciate it, and booooo Moustakas. I will not be creepin’ on that at all, but I like Colon a lot :)

    • J-FOH says:

      @Maxi: If I’m reading this right I say hold Hardy, you can drop Alcantara or Liriano or both if you need and Pollock when he’s back would be ranked higher than Liriano

      • Maxi says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Haha it was quite a read, sorry.

        OK, so if I need to stream pitchers this week (going against the 1st place team), I should drop Alcantara or Liriano, likewise for when Pollock is back.

        Thanks

        • J-FOH says:

          @Maxi: Yup

    In a dynasty league, which pitcher do you like better: McHugh or Fiers?

    • J-FOH says:

      @grif: Fiers

    14 team roto keeper – Felix/Utley/Collmenter for Teheran/Wood/Kipnis – who you got for this year and also keeper-wise?

    Thanks!!

    • J-FOH says:

      @J Boy: Teheran side

    I’ve got stroman, Hendricks and pineda as the bottom end of my staff. Also have cashner on the DL hopefully coming back later this week. With degrom set to come back this week should I pick him up to replace any of these guys for ROS. H2H points league. Thanks.

      @chris: hendricks

    Do you think Jon Jay is a keeper?

    great call on Joyce last week! I have a hard time dropping Sandoval for Moustakas this week just because he’s prob only going to get 4 starts. But I’ll definitely be playing Colon in my daily league.

    • J-FOH

      J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Spammer Jay: Sandoval is a must for sure.

      Colon has batty call over him.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Spammer Jay: I just re-read my comment and I mean Colon has batty call written all over him and not saying he is a play over Panda.

    Would you drop O. Infante for Colon? There isn’t much on the waiver wire as far as 2B/SS, so I’m sure Infante would get picked up quickly after a good game.

    I’m also eyeing Negron and Schoop… Who would you guys roll with?

    • J-FOH says:

      @Alex: schoop
