Yesterday, Chris Davis hit his 51st home run, breaking the Orioles’ home run record of 50 set by Brady Anderson.  In a ceremony following the game, Chris Davis sheared Brady Anderson’s sideburns, donating them to a teenager who wants to appear closer in age to his fake ID.  Teenager Billy Lutkin said, “I already look like I’m at least 22, these will make me look like I’m like 30!  I’m gettin’ drunk!”  Davis’s season line is 100/51/132/.293/3, and rightfully sits near the top of our Player Rater.  Old news, but I’m thinking about new news (almost stutterer!) and what can he do for 2014 fantasy baseball?  In the 2nd half, he hit .255 with 13 homers as his BABIP and HR/FB% came soaring back to his career norms and rather than otherworldly as in the first half.  He has a near 30% K-rate and doesn’t look anything close to the guy he was in the first half.  Next year, he should still get 35 homers, but will probably hit closer to .265 and with those numbers his counting stats will come back to earth like Andrelton after holiday.  Let’s just say someone will be drafting him before me next year.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Matt Harvey – Will attempt to rehab rather than immediately opt for Tommy John surgery.  You knew this was coming.  I mean, was there any doubt that the Mets would take the worst course of action?  This is the team that is allowing David Wright to return for some meaningless games once he’s ready.  This is the team that brought in their fences when their immediate future is obviously contingent on pitching.  This is the team that made Dwight Gooden the local chapter president of D.A.R.E.

Marco Scutaro – Could be done for the year with tendon damage.  That is just offal!

Yusmeiro Petit – 6 IP, 4 ER, 10 baserunners, 1 K in Metco.  He looked like hot garbage and was very lucky to get the win.  I don’t know who he gets next, but I wouldn’t go near him again.

Angel Pagan – 3-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting near .350 in the last week.  The problem is the Giants are not playing him every day, so I wouldn’t rush out to grab him unless I could platoon him.

Edwin Encarnacion – As announced here first after inferring shizz from other sources, Edwin is done for the year, headed for wrist surgery.  His recovery time will be about three months, unless the Comatose Blue Jays Fan goes to see him in the hospital and begs him to come back for the playoffs.  “But Josh Johnson and Emilio Bonifacio are just hitting their stride!  Aren’t they?”

Rajai Davis – 2-for-4 and his 6th home run.  The King of SAGNOF, founder of the house of SAGNOF and the first King in the North, keeps going beyond the wall.

Colby Rasmus – 1-for-4 and his 21st home run.  He’s now hit three home runs in the three games since he’s returned.  Looks like Rasmus has some hot schmotatoness in him.  I’d grab him to see if he can continue it.

R.A. Dickey – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks. “Back-to-back Cy Youngs, baby!  Right?  Possible?  Is it between him and Sabathia?”  — Comatose Blue Jays Fan.

Dayan Viciedo – 3-for-5, 2 RBIs.  I told you to grab him yesterday.  Today, I say you should’ve paid attention yesterday.

Brian Dozier – 3-for-5, 2 runs and his 12th steal.  He’s setting himself up to outsmart some drafters next year who think they’re smarter than the average bear.  Too Smart For Their Own Good Drafter, “You go ahead and take your upside flyers at MI, I’ll take Dozier and be more than happy with his 20-homer power and 15-steal speed.”  Right.

Jose Quintana – 6 IP, 1 ER, 10 baserunners, 5 Ks vs. the Twins.  I’m sure there’s at least one pitcher I wouldn’t start against the Twins while Mauer is sidelined, but I can’t think of one off the top of my head.

Chase Utley – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 18th homer, and 2nd in as many games.  Look at Utes putting himself back on the map for 2014.  Maybe he’s trying to get asked to play the part of Richie Rich in the off-Broad Street adaptation.  (See resemblance to Macaulay Culkin when Utley slicks back hair.)

Cesar Hernandez – 2-for-4, 2 runs, hitting near .400 in the last week, and there’s no reason why the Phils shouldn’t keep playing him, so if you need runs and average, go to it.

Jimmy Rollins – 3-for-4, 2 runs.  FWIWerth, and it should be Werth something since you’re reading this, I grabbed Rollins again for the Phils series vs. the Marlins because they’re trotting out a group of peg boys.

Roy Halladay – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 2 Ks vs. the MIA Marlins.  He had three walks to two strikeouts, which is code for something is seriously wrong with him or he’s trying to be the opposite of The Adverb.  An adjective?  That’s what Yahoo Answers seems to think.  BTW, am I the only one that gets a laugh from Yahoo Answers?  There will be a question like, “How do fish reproduce?”  Then someone will come along and write a long answer about how fish light candles and put on light jazz.  I want enough time to write answers on Yahoo.

Jason Castro – Shut down for the season due to a cyst in his knee.  He shouldn’t need surgery, so he hopes to be ready for next year — un-a-cysted.

Jeff Locke – 5 IP, 4 ER, 10 baserunners, 5 Ks vs. the Padres.  If knowledge is the key, then show Locke the door.

Jedd Gyorko – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 19th homer.  Yup, he’ll have a sleeper post for next year (assuming he’s not overdrafted).

Clayton Kershaw – Start pushed from Wednesday to Saturday to give him rest for the playoffs.  The Dodgers are not concerned about your H2H playoffs, unfortunately.

Matt Kemp – 4-for-4, 1 run, 3 RBIs.  So his hitting muscle is still working.  The Dodgers did jump out to an early lead when Kemp was routhenasia’d, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him sit multiple times in the next week-plus.

Patrick Corbin – 2 IP, 6 ER.  Regression Fairies, you are cruel, unforgiving bastards.

Sonny Gray – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks.  Grey, you are awesome.  You too, Sonny Gray.  That works better spoken.  Sonny gets the Twins next.  Yes, please and thank you.

Yordano Ventura – 5 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks.  Filthy.  Dirty, filthy, nasty stuff.  Now I see why Prospect Scott wrote a Yordano Ventura fantasy.  Ventura was regularly hitting 99 MPH and looked easily capable of overpowering any hitter he wanted.  Control looked sloppy at times.  I’d say it was due to nerves, but even in the minors he’d lose the strike zone from time to time.  Will definitely be someone to put on your short list, which is the only time short is a positive adjective.

Jarrod Dyson – 2-for-4 and his 32nd steal.  He’s got “Don’t even bother throwing it to 2nd base” speed.  Love to see him race Billy Hamilton.  Pre-All-Star Game festivities idea!  At home plate, Dyson and Hamilton have to down ten Red Bulls and then run around the bases.  Winner gets a full-time starting job.

Joe Kelly – 5 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 0 Ks in Coors, dropping his ERA to 2.74.  I wonder if he used eBay when he sold his soul.

Matt Holliday – 4-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 20th homer.  Must’ve been nice for him to be back in Coors where he’s a 40/20 guy not a 20/40 guy.  Those are Homers/Doubles.

Jon Jay – 3-for-5, 1 run and his 8th steal.  Has three steals in the last ten games, and a ton of counting stats (as every Cardinal hitter gets).  He’s no Matt Adams (2-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI), but that’s because I’m not reminded of him every time I see this.

Wilin Rosario – Left yesterday’s game with a flare up of his calf injury.  Moo.  I mean, boo.

Jeremy Hellickson – 2 2/3 IP, 5 ER, raising his ERA to 5.23.  Might think about changing his nickname to Whatthehellboy.

Alexi Ogando – 5 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 4 Ks.  Good thing the Rangers traded for Garza!  Ogando gets the Royals next, which is an okay stream; I wouldn’t expect him to go longer than six innings.

Ian Kinsler – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 12th home run.  Wow.  It’s rare when a player sneaks through the cracks and I can’t guess within two homers how many they have, but I would’ve guessed Kinsler had around 18 homers, especially since he’s been relatively healthy all year.  His fly ball rate fell way off this year and his line drives went up.  Not a terrible thing, but I’m sure his owners would take a .250-hitting Kinsler with 25 homers over this current one.

Leonys Martin – 3-for-4, 3 runs and his 8th homer.  That’s with his 32 steals.  8 homers and 32 steals?  Ah, Miss Moneypenny, I’ve got him right in my sights for all my teams next year.

Mike Leake – 8 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks.  Due to the 6-man rotation, the Stream-o-Nator doesn’t have his next start yet, but it should come against the Mets, which you don’t need SON to tell you is solid.

Jay Bruce – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 5 RBIs and his 30th homer.  That’s for youse, as in Bruuuuce!

Zack Cozart – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs.  Back-to-back two hit games and it looks like he’s swinging a hot bat all over again (until he’s not which will be in about 3 days.)

Todd Frazier – 2-for-3, 1 run, 1 RBI and his 4th steal.  I’d chalk this up to going against the Astros pitching, but today he gets them again, so there’s that.

Stephen Strasburg – Should return on Thursday, which is tomorrow.  Thanks, iCal!  Not “Thanks, Cali” dyslexic readers.

Dan Haren – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks vs. the Braves.   Next, he gets the Marlins, which is a no-brainer.  Which, Part II:  Any Which Way But Loose; means Haren will manage to get hit hard by South Florida’s fishiest.

Tanner Roark – 7 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 6 Ks.  Roark keeps making fantasy dreams come true without the assistance of a midget.  Always felt Herve was underappreciated, but maybe he wasn’t as necessary.  Roark gets the Cardinals next, which isn’t a start I’d risk him at.

Denard Span – 2-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI and his 17th and 18th steal in the doubleheader, extending his hitting streak to 28 games.  Halfway to Joe DiMaggio, which is a quarter of the way to Marilyn Monroe at all times.  Joe D. was a stalker, y’all!

Craig Kimbrel – 1/3 IP, 2 ER and his 4th blown save.  Really nothing, but with the Braves locked into the playoffs, they could give him some rest next week and let David Carpenter or Jordan Walden close.  Wait, I’m saying Fredi Gonzalez is going to give a pitcher rest?  Yeah, that’s just stoopid.

Evan Gattis – 1-for-8, 2 RBIs and a home run in the first game of the doubleheader.  A catcher, outfielder, ski instructor and recluse, Gattis still dines on pizza box cheese that he finds in dumpsters, only now they’re from reputable pizza chains.

Elliott Johnson – 3-for-6, 2 runs with two steals in the doubleheader (started only one game over Uggla).  Johnson now has five steals in the last nine games.  There’s a new SAGNOF’er in town and he was named after that little kid in E.T.

Marco Estrada – 7 IP, 3 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks.  As with every pitcher besides of a handful of the top ones, it only matters where they go next and Estrada gets the Braves, which is a tough call.   Their offense is solid, but they’re in coast mode for the playoffs.  I could see streaming him there, but only if you can handle the risk.

Carlos Gomez – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 20th homer.  He has 6 homers and a .261 average in the 2nd half (still 15 steals) in the 2nd half.  So the regression that I was sweating in the 1st half did come, just not as dramatically as I thought it would.  And that’s how you squeeze ‘around being right’ into a square hole.

Welington Castillo – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, and 4th homer in the last week.  The power will completely disappear, but I’d give him a whirl if I were struggling or just lost Castro.

Anibal Sanchez – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 10 Ks.  I look forward to the looting in Detroit when they win the World Series.  News anchor, “Due to the massive, five hours of looting last night, it is estimated that there is over thirty-seven dollars worth of damage to the city.”  Man on the street, “Someone threw my trash can through a window, now where am I supposed to sleep tonight?”

    So I’ve enjoyed having Brad Miller on my roster… Until he went and got hurt. I’m in the playoffs and need a SS stat! Using OBP in my league. Is Dozier a good replacement for this week or is there someone better to grab?

    Thanks as always!

    So looking at Sunday nights game(STL/MIL), ESPN shows Peralta but Yahoo says Peralta goes Saturday. Estrada’s latest blurb on Yahoo says he takes the mound Sunday. Do we know who pitches for sure? The last game of the championship for me

    So streamers i grabbed for 2 starts in my cbs 10 team roto next week have a few warts.

    I added:

    Chris archer (bal, @ tor)
    Wade miley (@ sd, was)
    Danny salazar (cws, @ min)
    Marco estrada (@ atl, @ nym)

    Any of these guys I should reconsider?

    Wins and whip are the categories I’m looking at improving.

    • Carnac says:
      (link)

      @gareth: Yeah, worts all around. I’d consider Salazar and Miley. Of course, Salazar may only pitch 3 innings. FWIW, Estrada has pitched much better on the road, but playing for wins is always a crapshoot.

    Also would you add leonys martin, who has 7 games in Arlington v’s the astros (4) and angels(3)?

    I would be dropping an ice cold kyle seager and playing him over either swisher, lawrie, choo or adams.

    Gio Gonzalez goes to st louis for his final start. Should I bench him?

    First off, screw Petit. I finally pick him up for a start against the weakest offense in baseball in a pitchers park and he pulls this crap on me? You’re dead to me, Petit.

    Anyways, I’ve got good news. The other day I told you I would be doing a photo shoot for the Tampa Bay Lightning this week that involved the Fox Sports Girls. Well apparently the photo shoot and video work will be JUST the girls for 3 days. That’s right, three days of taking pictures of these girls…

    Which 2 hitters do you like best for the next few days? Steals would be nice but I will take best overall value as all offensive categories are close.

    Hosmer vTEX (Perez, Garza, Ogando)
    Swisher vHOU (Keuchel, Olberholtzer, Clemens, Bedard)
    Span vMIA (Alvarez, Turner, Koehler, TBA)
    Yelich @WAS (Strasburg, Gio, Zimmerman, Haren)
    Adams @COL (Oswalt) @MIL (Hellwig, Gallardo, Peralta)
    Bonefacio vTEX (Perez, Garza, Ogando)

    Right now Im leaning Swisher and Span. Swisher gets 4 games, 3 against below average lefties and Swisher has been hitting lefties much better this season. Span also gets a 4 game set and has been extremely hot lately, especially with stolen bases. Hopefully with a playoff push, he’ll remain aggressive. Facing the Marlins pitching staff without Fernandez is obviously a plus. My third favorite is probably Adams.

    • bossmanjunior says:
      (link)

      @bossmanjunior:

      4th pitcher Span faces versus MIA will likely be Flynn.

    “I’m sure there’s at least one pitcher I wouldn’t start against the Twins while Mauer is sidelined, but I can’t think of one off the top of my head.”

    Grey- I picked up Gyorko at your behest a while back, and he’s been nothing short of amazing since I did. When I saw “Gyorko- 3 run HR” on the crawl at the bottom of the TV screen, my first thought was, “Grey is going to be all over this guy next year.” Fast Forward to today, and here’s you saying you will be all over this guy next year. Here’s to me being in 1st place in my roto, and a fantastic job prognosticating by you this season.

His yahoo ADP was i think in the late 300′s, i got him much earlier (still late) just in case somebody else knew something. Turned out i fucked up early on though when i dumped kelly johnson to keep gyorko.

    Bench Leonys Martin, Tex OF. @TB. 7:00 PM (Archer)Recent outburst could finally indicate a hot streak? Tampa Bay terrible throwing out basestealers. Cons: he bats ninth and could be pinch hit against a lefty after only 2ABs…
    Bench Denard Span, Wsh OF Atl. 7:05 PM (Wood)poor lefty on lefty matchup, but has been hot and not run shy. Like the fact Nats are grinding to get in playoffs too.

    If it were your 500$ on the line who would you play? All Opinions welcome…

    Hello Grey,

    Strategy question for you, I am in the semis of my H2H league, but Parker and Corbin have trashed my ratios for the week. I have one move left for the week, and with ratios gone and me shooting for just Ws and Ks from my starters, would you leave these two, as well as Petit pitching Sun @NYY, in my lineup and use the last pickup on a C to fill in for Rosario?

    The other option would be to keep Rosario in for (hopefully) 2/3 games and then use the last move to stream Haren vs MIA to boost Ks and chase wins.

    You’re the man, Grey. Thanks for all the insight!

    • Mike says:
      (link)

      Looking at the WW, it’d probably be either Salty, Avila, or Perez. Or one start of Haren. I’m losing hair over this, I hate our moves limit…

    Grey,

    1. I’m chasing pitching cats a little bit, so I need a decision on throwing one of these guys today:

    Kyle Kendrick (vs. Mia, SON $9.5) — definition of garbage, but hey, it’s against the gnarlins

    John Danks (vs. Min, SON $6.9) — do I test your ‘any pitcher against the Twins without Mauer’ theory?

    Bruce Chen (vs. Cle, SON $5.0) — good stats against the Tribe this year

    2. If picking between the two, would you rather throw McAllister Friday (vs. Hou, SON $13.7) or Kazmir on Saturday (vs. Hou, SON $18.8)? I’m going to try to stream both, but I think I’ll only be able to grab one.

    ———–

    Thanks!

    • chillmodious says:
      (link)

      @chillmodious: Dah! Scratch Kyle Kendrick (no longer starting) and make that Tyler Thornburg (vs. Cubs, SON $5.5).

    Hmmm… some team vying for 4th place just dropped Venable in the midst of my H2H finals. I’m thinking I should I move on that since I could use some extra speed, but hadn’t previously considered any major offensive lineup shakeups at this point in the season. This is a redraft league, though, so there’s that. Sorry to do the roster post, but is there anyone you would lose for Venable? (I’m thinking maybe Rizzo?)

    C – Lucroy
    1B – Goldschmidt
    2B – Martin Prado
    3B – Miggy
    SS – Segura
    MI – Bonifacio
    CI – Prince Fielder
    OF – Adam Jones
    OF – Shin-Soo Choo
    OF – Desmond Jennings
    OF – Wil Myers
    OF – Leonys Martin
    Util – Anthony Rizzo

    ————————–

    ALSO… I could move Bonifacio to 2B and drop a cold Prado for a hot Asdrubal to play MI. Should I make that move as well, or hold?

  30. JFT says:

    Should I start Peavy tonight against the Orioles? The only stat I need is quality starts, and I just have to be careful with my ERA. I only have 11 starts left on the year.

    Maybe a good day to stack Jays vs Hughes @ Rogers Center. Two homer minimum.

    • Wake Up says:

      @OaktownSteve: literally was typing this to you at present…grabbed Sierra and Rasmus…

      • OaktownSteve says:
        (link)

        @Wake Up:

        I would have wanted Rasmus but unavailable. Somebody dropped Lowrie in my league so I grabbed him, Sierra, Lind, Gose, Rajai. Probably only two of Sierra, Gose and Rajai will go so I’ll have a four pack.

        • Wake Up says:
          (link)

          @OaktownSteve: same with Lind…was looking for him too…but unavailable…as Trump would say, “This is gonna be -ughes” *doing that thing where he shows you the tips of his fingers

        • OaktownSteve says:
          (link)

          @OaktownSteve:

          By the way, I did a little calculating and found that Lind has averaged a little over 23 homers a year in just 482 ABs/year since 2009. Jays have an option on him for next year and I don’t know if they’ll exercise it or not. If he stays in Toronto I could see him being a 30 homer guy next year that goes cheap. I don’t think it’s likely that he’ll ever really bust through but he’s becoming a classic post hype under the radar option.

          • Wake Up says:
            (link)

            @OaktownSteve: Interesting…but he is a must sit vs LHP so I’m not sure his ABs can climb that much…

          • Crapshoot Kershaw says:
            (link)

            @costaricanchata: i’m guessing 14 at bats is indicative of something then? You ever seen those guys who play roulette and either take black because it’s been black 9 times in a row, or take red because it’s been black 9 times in a row? There may be something about Hughes pitching that Raj isn’t good at hitting, but 14 at bats isn’t a very long time. People that play roulette often find what they already thought prior to investigation. Had they investigated they would have found a game that loses 2 cents and fractions per dollar bet.

    • Big Magoo says:
      (link)

      @OaktownSteve: Might get those two homers out of the Lind/Sierra/Rasmus trio alone. I was only able to grab Sierra in a couple of leagues, so no stack but a solid plug and play. He’s 6/11 w/ a homer and 5 ribbies against Hughes.

      • Wake Up says:

        @Big Magoo: nice call on Roark…I felt a bomb coming on…being on the back end of the double header certainly didn’t hurt him either…

    Grey,

    Chase Utley wants me to be “Fantasy Fuckin Champion.” Dude is putting on a display at the perfect time. Glad I stuck with him as long as I did.

    I have only two moves left for my keeper league after I used one move to secure Carl Jr’s favorite customer’s trip to Colorado which has paid off more than a bucket of Onion Rings so far. Do I:

    Pick up E. Johnson, Cozart, or Jimmy Rollins in lieu of Scooter who seems to be scuffling or Hold?
    Pick up Martin, Young (Jr.), or Shuck to rotate in at LF the days Moss is sitting? I’ve played the dancing game with Martin the last couple of weeks and he seems to get ice-cold or drop in the lineup every time I seem to pick him up.

    I’m currently down in Steals (2-0) and down one 2B for the week. Every other offensive category I lead in. I just want to ensure if I have to stream a guy last minute for either a QS, Win, or K, I’ll have the applicable move. Many thanks as always!

    Gattis spent both games of yesterday’s DH in LF (eating pizza box cheese). I’m wondering if he will be in the lineup today. I have limited WW pickups this week. My plan was to pick up Belt or Raburn as a fill in for other players who might be sitting today and then Montero or AJP for Gattis’s off day tomorrow. I just need RBI’s. If Gattis is out today I’d have an open C position.

    So, do I pick up a catcher today or can I wait until tomorrow and which which catcher do I go with – Montero (1vLAD, 4@COL) or AJP (2@TB, 3@KC)?

    And do I go with Belt (has Harang then Niese (LHP) then in LHB positive Yankee stadium but against 2 LHP there) or Raburn (who has the position flexibility and has killed LHP this year and faces 4 out of the next 5 and the Indians have put him in the 5 slot vs LHP)?

    • Grey

      Montero… Raburn…

      • Tom says:
        (link)

        @Grey: So you would go ahead with Montero today – protecting myself against an empty C slot but losing out on today’s Raburn game vs a LHP?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Ah, no, misunderstood… Just go with Raburn

          • Tom says:
            (link)

            @Grey: OK, so Raburn today and add Montero for Gattis off day tomorrow (I can’t add them both today I have Cain pitching and his Roster spot won’t be available until tomorrow – the championship ends on 9/22).

    Grey!
    Several quick things:

    1. I’m a long time lurker, first time poster. Just wanna say great site, great insights. I’m in a 16 team H2H and you can’t fake your way through that shit.

    2. I might have an unhealthy attraction to Sonny Gray. Should I seek help?

    3. I think there should be a term for when your pitcher has a great start and the only damage done to him is from one of your hitters. (Think Ryu earlier this week near perfect but gave up an early 2 run bomb to Goldie).
    I was thinking maybe “Conception”, or “Symbiotic Statistic”.

    4. I started punting saves about three-quarters of the way into the year and I may never start a closer again. Wondering how you felt about that or if you’ve had success with it.
    Thanks!

      1. Thanks! 2. Nah, you’ll be fine 3. There used to be called F*cking Your Stepsister, but I think it got removed from lack of use. 4. I don’t see the point in giving up on a category…

      • Phil Sperling says:
        (link)

        1. Your welcome! 2.Glad to hear it. 3. I guess it is pretty rare
        4. Here’s my thinking on this. It’s about finding Starters with RP eligibility who are good. My league lineups lock on Monday for the week. You get 8 pitcher spots, two of which are RP. So if I can manage to set it up that I have a an extra 2, 3, or 4 starts, I feel the added advantage outweighs the loss of Saves. I significantly raise my chances for Ws, Ks, and QS, while still being able to take ERA and WHIP. Maybe I’ve just been getting lucky, but for the way my league is set up I think it’s the way to go.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Ah… Yeah, had no idea how your league was set up… Seems to make sense there

          • Phil Sperling says:
            (link)

            It tends to work well unless your weekly opponent counters it properly, i.e. starting one closer and finding an RP eligible starter to plug in the other spot that doesn’t blow up his ratios. I’m dealing with this now in the Semis.(He got me with Tanner Roark this week. Ballsy start against ATL.).

            Wish me luck. Talk to you again some other time.

    my competition is throwing peavy and salazar out today.. not too worried about those starts but Im wondering if I should grab thornburg and roll him out today? I also have waino going tonight.

    you feel good about thornburg vs the cubbies? or should I just play it safe and start only waino tonight?

    Hola Grey,

    I have been using Votto and Goldy at 1B and Util all year.
    I had Matt Kemp stashed on my DL, and Colby Rasmus was dominating while Kemp was hurt, then got hurt himself. Now they’re both back. We start LF, CF, RF and those two are only CF eligible.

    I’m thinking I keep Votto and Goldy where they’ve been and plug in Kemp until he falters/gets hurt again… but Colby’s hotness has me struggling with that decision.

    Thoughts? We’re 6×6 H2H (5 + OPS) and if I win this week I’m in the finals…

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d plug in Kemp and lose Rasmus

    I know the season is still warm, but I’m getting excited to make Carnac’s 2014 rankings.

All cabins out here have WiFi.

    Hopefully things go better than last year when, after a weekend-long sweat lodge with Sky, I ended up with BJ Upton, Ike Davis and Josh Rutledge across multiple teams.

    According to hitter-tron, I’m benching Pence against Harang and starting Agon, Adams, J Upton, Werth and Crisp…I’m completely tworn on this decision because Pence has been so hot. Can I get some help or some insight to settle this decision? Thanks!

      @Mateo: i wouldn’t be caught in the rain that is likely coming benching pence right now. Probably bench Upton, even if you’re wrong it can’t be like when I benched Upton last week for Asche. You won’t feel bad about your decision later.

    Any way you keep Harvey in a 10-team keeper? I’m considering dropping him for added pitching down the stretch here, but is he worth the risk next year if his rehab goes well? Would be giving up a 10th rd pick next year for him. I can keep 5 for next year. Right now I’m looking at keeping Stanton (Rd 6), Goldy (Rd9), Puig (Rd 21), and Cole (Rd 22). Other options for the fifth are Ian Desmond (Rd 18), Pence (Rd 11), Lawrie ( Rd 18), Ryu (Rd 22), Chapman (Rd 19). Any of those better than taking a risk with Harvey in Rd 10? Thanks!

    I’m in the semis of my 12 team H2H dynasty league. Thankfully I decided to leave Hellickson on the bench last night but now I’m wondering if he is worth hanging onto going into next season. Dan Straily is sitting out on the wire for a start tomorrow, do I make the switch? I really can’t see me starting Hellickson again this season.

    Also would you drop Bonifaico for Span?

    There’s some hope for Harvey going the rehab route. Ervin Santana, Greinke, and Halladay are three of the guys who avoided Tommy John surgery after suffering similar injuries.

    I have crossed an RCL milestone, or I think it should be an awesomeness standard

    1058/300/1022……and thats with streaming bags heavily the last month and trading Chris Davis 6 weeks ago. This is ain’t no humble brag this is straight bragging!

        @Grey: I only have 168 bags and now 12 points, but it’s not that impressive to me. I had 7 points about a month ago. I am on the cusp of getting to the top 10 and getting into the champions league next year

    Segura leaves the game heading home from 2nd. Hammy. Guessing I just lost him for the ROS.

    Options seem to be:
    Cozart
    B.Miller
    Dozier
    A. Escobar

    HT doesn’t like any of them. Last move of the week (Since E5 just went down as well, and I’m saving my other move for Yordano Ventura …1 waiver priority – keeper league)

          My only real power bat left is Au Shizz.

          So this is what I’m working with now:

          Gattis/AJP
          Votto
          Au Shizz
          Machado
          Boneface

        @hondo:
        Matt Adams exits game with elbow injury

        Matt Adams left Wednesday’s game against the Rockies with a right elbow injury.
        Adams appeared to be favoring his right arm after grounding out in the sixth inning and was removed an inning later. It’s not clear at this point how long he’ll be out, but it’s worth noting that his 2012 season ended after he had surgery to remove bone chips from the same elbow. With Allen Craig already sidelined, Brock Peterson would be in line for playing time at first base while Adams it sidelined.

    In my league that favors RP heavy teams (where no one else in the league has an RP heavy team because they are all apparently idiots), I’ve run into a fucking buzz saw. I haven’t lose since the last week of June so its going to be a travesty if I don’t make the finals.

    Opponent got 16 RBIs yesterday and has a .370 average and .995 slugging so he’s got me in those cats by a huge margin while its still close in runs, steals and HRs. In the pitching cats, I’m in deep shit also because yesterday he ran Anibal out there who pitched a monsterous game (14+ k/9 from that one) and today, he rolls Iwakami against detroit and lucks into another great start. So now he’s met the league minimum of 15 IP and has a 1.04 ERA (I’m tied with him there) and a 1.04 WHIP and a 10.9 K/9. Have to pray he’s dumb enough to run more pitchers out there to fuck up those cats. I’m banking on Greinke against the padres this weekend. I may need a fucking perfect game from him with 15ks to pull this thing off.

    • letsgobravos says:
      (link)

      @letsgobravos: FUCK. Just read Greinke isn’t pitching again until next tuesday. SON OF A BITCH. Sat him yesterday gambling he’d have a monster game against SD. Now I have sonny gray going sunday as my only remaining start. Have 5 moves so I can stream, but I need the kind of start its almost impossible to get from a streamer….

      • letsgobravos says:
        (link)

        @letsgobravos: Scrambled to the wire and found Garrett Cole available. Gets the Padres tomorrow. I need something along the lines of 8 IP, 0ER, 5 hits/walks and 8ks. Odds I can get that from him?
