As Sam Cooke said when looking at John Axford on my fantasy teams, “Change is gonna come.”  Thanks, Sam.  Sam also said the same thing after I gave a waiter twenty dollars on a $12 bill.  Speaking of paper money, is it me or do people pull out a five dollar bill and also wonder to themselves, “Hey, when did they put Daniel Day Lewis on money?”  The Brewers said we need to look at the closing situation with Axford.  HAHAHAHAHA  *breathe, Grey, breathe*  HAHAHAHAHA *inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale*  Oh, man, that it is rich.  They need to look at it?!  Really?!  That’s like saying there’s a goiter the size of a cantaloupe growing out of your head and you might want to get it checked out.  Hey, you got a goiter growing out of your bullpen, Brewers!  Check on it!  Obviously, you need to grab The Muppeteer, Jim Henderson.  I’d hold Axford for now (on my bench), but he could be out of the mix for saves for a while if he can’t his shizz together when he enters games in the 7th and 8th inning.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Ryan Braun – 3-for-4, run and RBI as he returned to the lineup.  Don’t worry, on the podcast later today, I don’t sing a’la Kelly Clarkson, “Since U been Braun…”

Marco Estrada – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks.  I was on the verge of dumping him if he didn’t turn in a good start vs. the Cubs, but Estrada showed up when the C.H.I.P.S. were down.

Martin Maldonado – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs as he plays first with Yuniesky Betancourt moving to third while Aramis smells coffee beans on the DL.  Maldonado isn’t remotely interesting in most leagues (little power, no speed).  His one saving grace for 2-catcher leagues is he might see everyday playing time and has catcher eligibility.  Also, Martin Mulldonado’s History of Puerto Rican People In America is an under-appreciated masterpiece.

Welington Castillo – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his first homer of the year.  Welington’s fans all started chanting, “Boeuf, there it is!”  He could surprise with 15-homer power, but not a whole lot else.

Edwin Jackson – 6 IP, 5 ER.  Edlost without allowing any jacks, son.

Matt Harvey – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks.  I wish he’d change his first name so my Giancarlo tramp stamp wouldn’t need any altering.

John Buck – Hit his third homer.  Meanwhile, Travis d’Arnaud sighed.

John Lackey – MRI showed no major damage on Lackey’s arm.  Odd, cause there’s some fantasy teams that are showing major damage due to his arm.  Alfredo Aceves should take his spot.  ‘fredo betrays his family name since he is not an Ace.

Clay Buchholz – 7 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 8 Ks.  Hmm…Trying to think of an excuse to not pick him up.  Hold on, would ya?  *takes a walk, longingly watches someone smoking a cigarette, returns*  Okay, Clay’s xFIP is near 4.  Not enough?  Eh, he could be fine, but I would go to about twenty-five other waiver wire starters prior to him.

Daniel Nava – 2-for-2, 3 RBIs and his 2nd home run in as many games.  All he is a hot schmotato, but I like him more than Jackie Bradley Jr. cause at least Daniel’s hitting.  Soon though he’ll be Nava, Nava, Nava damn thing.

Adam Jones – 1-for-4 with his first home run as he hits .500 on the year.  No idea where I’ve heard his name before.  Oh, I know!  Silly me, he was the guy I ranked 3 rounds before anyone else and told you to draft him on every team.

Roy Halladay – 4 IP, 7 ER, 9 baserunners, 3 Ks.  I should’ve told you to sell this guy last week while you still had time to get something.  That’s mea culpa.  But it’s your-a culpa for drafting him in the first place.  At this point, I’d bench him in most leagues and hope the Phils send him to the Disgraceful List so you can DL him.

Paul Maholm – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks.  So every starter isn’t Matt Harvey (except in my dreams where Harvey’s wearing a hat made of chocolate frosting and gumdrop mittens).  I didn’t like Maholm in the preseason, but I can concede that he’s looking solid as a back-end starter. Every game won’t be this pretty, but every game also won’t come against a team as ugly as the Marlins in Crayola Canyon.  Maholm can run together a solid month of starts and appears to be in one of those grooves.

Justin Upton – 4-for-4, 2 runs with his 6th homer.  Diamondbacks said they would do the Upton trade again in a heartbeat, only next time they’d also include three pitching prospects.

Chris Johnson – 3-for-4, hitting .357 after the first week.  With Freddie Freeman out for two weeks, guess who’s going to be playing first?  Hint:  It’s the name at the beginning of this blurb.  If you need some light power and a decent average/counting stats, I’d grab him.  Juan Francisco will also be seeing regular playing time, and can give you solid power and less average.

Alexi Ogando – 5 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 2 Ks.  After breezing through the Lastros in his last start, he looked as solid (with obviously less Ks) vs. the Rays last night.  The only problem for Ogando seems to be how deep into games he can go.  After hearing ad infinitum the adversity Jose Fernandez faced (he was on a raft with an unfriendly Bengal tiger!), Ogando needs to toughen up.

Mitch Moreland – 3-for-3, and his 2nd homer in 3 games.  Rudy beat me to the RCL waivers for this guy.  4 ladies and gentlemen, we have a hot schmotato!

Jeff Niemann – Will have season-ending shoulder surgery, which will leave him in the bargain bin at Niemann-bupkis.

Kevin Slowey – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners (0 BBs), 3 Ks.  He’s like a poor man’s Maholm.  I’ll call him Po’holm.  I’ll be honest (I have been lying for the last 1200 words), I can’t build any enthusiasm to pick up Slowey myself, but he could give you solid help with ratios, especially at home.

Ervin Santana – 8 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 7 Ks.  Ervin hasn’t given it to Twins that well since prior to 1991.

Aaron Crow – Got the save yesterday.  I now own four Royal relievers in the RCL (12-team mixed).  Basically any run given up by the Royals bullpen will be on my team.  That can’t turn out well…. Or can it?  Crow, Kelvin and Collins are terrific.  The worst one is the guy the Royals are saying is still the closer, Holland.  And, really, he’s not that bad.  He’s just struggling right now.  The Royals said Holland can take the heat, but Holland took that the wrong way and offered to drive Kelvin anywhere he wanted to go.  Kelvin, “Hey, Holland where are we going?”  “No, idea, coach asked if I could take the heat tomorrow,” but Holland and Kelvin in the car together produced a Dutch oven.  Not everyone can own every Royals reliever on their fantasy team, so I’d rank them for saves Holland, Kelvin, Crow then Collins.

Robinson Cano – 3-for-4, 4 runs and two solo homers.  Robinson was stranded in the middle of the 2005 All-Star team, but pulled himself out of his funk without waiting for Friday.

Vernon Wells – 3-for-4 with his 1st steal, hitting .381 so far.  I wonder if Arte Moreno owns him on his fantasy team to hedge his bets, assuming his fantasy league pot is $28 million.

Travis Hafner – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 4 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .391.  If you’re currently in first and you autodrafted Hafner, feel free to email your league that they’ve been Pronk’d.

Carlos Santana – Left yesterday’s game after taking a pitch off his thumb.  Oy Como Ya.

Ubaldo Jimenez – 4 1/3 IP, 7 ER.  If you drafted Ubaldo and hold onto him, by June you’ll be Combover-o.

Wandy Rodriguez – Left yesterday’s start with tightness in his hamstring.  I once dealt with a tight hamstring during Thanksgiving.  What a pain!  First, you get the ham out of the can, then there’s string on it?  What’s up with that?!

Joe Saunders – 6 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks.  I just thought of a fun All-Star Game festivity.  The starting pitcher from the All-Star Game faces off against the Astros to see how long they go without scoring a run.  Only it’s the starting pitcher from 1954 All-Star Game, 84-year-old Whitey Ford.

Hunter Pence – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer.  Due to Pence’s severely deflated draft day price tag, we might have Pence on more teams than any other player.  Yay for us.  What I do find interesting is Pence is hitting .280 right now.  Is it me or does he always hit .280?  It’s like he goes 1-for-3 and it’s marked as .280.  I need to talk to someone at Elias Sports Bureau about this.

Shin-Soo Choo – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, but two costly errors.  Choo turned red with embarrassment…Or maybe he just drank some soju.

David Freese – 0-for-3 as he returned from the DL.  Hey, that keyboard shortcut worked out well!  Make sure to get Freese into your lineup.  as he returned from the DL.  Damn!

Jaime Garcia – 6 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 10 Ks.  Had some real concerns about his shoulder when I ranked him crazy/notsexy/notcool low in the preseason.  Looks fine thus far, but you’re not gonna get a Buyme anytime soon.

Mitchell Boggs – “Hey, Jim, welcome to the world of TV news, glad to have you on board.  So, there’s reports of a tornado brewing on the I-95.”  Jim gulps, “You want me to cover that?”  “No, we sent some trucks and another reporter to do that.”  Jim exhales.  “Instead, we’re hearing reports that there’s aliens shooting fire out of their eyes up near Busch Stadium.  They are in no way hospitable and they’re wearing Mitchell Boggs’s jersey.  We don’t have any trucks left, but my 4-year-old left her tricycle in the backseat of my Porsche.  Grab the tricycle and pedal up there.  Oh, and Jim, this is not a drill.  This is the Closepocalypse.”   SIX EARNED RUNS IN A THIRD OF AN INNING?!  Hayzeus Cristo!  Imagine a failed Shark Tank invention where someone gets the bright idea they want their anus cooled by a fan while they are going to the bathroom, so they put a high-powered fan directly under where you sit.  The resulting mess is my fantasy team.  As of right now, I’d rank the Cards saves:  Boggs, Rosenthal, Salas and Mujica, but I wouldn’t put any in my lineup until I see a clean save.

    1) Lucroy (2 multi-hit games in a row) was dropped in a 1-catcher 15 teamer, drop Flowers for him? Points league where OPS rules.

    2) Doubront, Chacin, Happ, pick 2

    3) Air High Five!

    • @chunk: I’d gladly drop Flowers for Lucroy and I’d laugh maniacally while doing it.

      Those aren’t great pitchers (in my 16 leaguer, Chacin and Happ are still on waivers), but if I faced that dilemma I’d drop Happ.

    Ugh.. The whole time I was watching Harvey carve up the Phils, I couldn’t help but think about how my ERA was BOGGed down for the rest of the week. I could get no-no’s from here through Sunday and still lose ERA by a couple of runs.
    Thank you, Mitchell. I should have known better than to pick up a dude that doesn’t go by Mitch.
    In other news, welcome to the squad, Muppeteer!

    • Wilsonian says:

      @Bump Bailey’s Ghost: hahaha. I like that. If your name is Mitchell, you gotta go by Mitch. C’mon, Mitch Williams was so much more of a badass because his name was Mitch. How ridiculous would he sound if he went by Mitchell Williams. Sounds like Michelle Williams.

      And my team is now Mitchell-less and represented by Kermit T. Frog and the Mupeteers!

    Would you drop Wade Miley and/or Anibal Sanchez for Hyun-Jin Ryu and/or Chase Headley? I have Beltre at third and E5 and utility. I feel like Headley should be owned because of last seasons big numbers, and the fact he was going in the third round in mock drafts during the off season. Ryu would be fun to have I think, here is a video of him doing Gangnam Style with Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw. Enjoy!

          @bigloadz666: he was even worse than my 4 starters so far, Milone,Bailey,Gee,and Peavy. All of those 4 were great last week.

  11. bossmanjunior says:

    Beckett has a nice match up tomorrow @SD but has some questionable match ups the rest of the month (@ARI,@BAL,vMIL, vCOL). Waiver has some decent options and Buchholz has the best month of match ups (vTB, vKC, VOAK, @TOR). Those first 3 starts are at Fenway, but he does have a better career home ERA (3.60). Should I give Buchholz a whirl? Other remaining waiver options with less advantageous schedules are: Garcia, Miley, Maholm, Gee, Hammerlock, Hanson.

    Thanks!

    • Fister Furbush says:

      I’d drop Beckett for Bucholtz. I’d also drop him for Garcia, Miley and Maholm. Beckett lost it and i feel like you could drop him and not worry about it. Go with your gut.

    And THIS is why I paid for saves this year…like Papelbon, Soriano, Rivera, Grilli…sure, I can (and did) pick up the Muppet when Axford’s breakdown spilled into this year, but I am doing so with a very solid base of relievers. Last year, the Boggsian blowups were for those that did not pay for saves: Alfredo Aceves, Hector Santiago, Sergio Santos…and that was just the first 2 weeks!

    Cheap saves come with the higher propensity for blowups.

    • Later Tater says:

        @Later Tater:

        I went cheap on saves last year and ended up with Chapman, among others.

    • Wilsonian says:
      (link)

      @Mike G: they come with blowups, but when you were buying saves, I was snagging solid bats and starters that don’t have a propensity to blow up for 9 earned runs in a third of an inning. I will never pay for saves, and this season hasn’t changed anything. You can always find cheap saves on the wire, and really, why pay for one category when you can pay the same price for 4+ categories?

      • Hats for Bats says:
        (link)

        @Wilsonian: In deeper leagues with holds, there are NO saves available on the wire. The Muppet was picked up before he even got a stat. Top minor leaguers are all stashed away. In these types of leagues, I feel you need to pay a little more for saves. I grabbed Mo in the 8th and felt great about it.

        • Mike says:
          (link)

          @Hats for Bats: Well said, Hats. Funny how some think that RPs only contribute to 1 stat. Then some guys claim to have gotten Chapman last year without “paying.” Look, there is some degree of difficulty assumed, here, with your competition. If you can win your league by following some v-e-r-y common blueprint touted by websites along the country, then more power to ya.

At least they are making the rest of the A.L. fans happy.

    Thoughts on Jesus? He’s looked really bad. JP is available on the wire, am I crazy to jump ship so soon? 6×6 OBP (JP, Wellington, and Ianetta are all out there, probably for good reason).

    Thanks love the site!

      @Save Me Jesus:

      Keeper league? If so, I’d probably hold on Jesus. If not, all are about equal. One’s hot now, the others will be hot at random times through the year.

      • Help Me Jesus says:

        Thanks for the response! It is a keeper league but keep a catcher?

        • Hawk says:
          (link)

          @Help Me Jesus: @Help Me Jesus:

          Depends on how many keepers, how many catcher league etc…

          If its a one-catcher league you’re probably not keeping any of those guys.
          If you only keep like 5 guys, you’re probably not keeping any of those guys

          However, all things being equal you want to give yourself the largest range of possibilities. Right now, the guys you mentioned are pretty equal. Montero is the only one on that list with any sort of keeper potential. That’s why I’d hold.

    Rutledge hit 6th yesterday. He’s done just okay so far. I need him to score runs! And he’ll get the useful 2B/SS eligibility soon. You still high on him? Other options include Cozart and Segura.

    • Hawk says:
      (link)

      @Charles:

      All three are about equal, imo. If you drop Rutledge now and pick up either of Cozart or Segura, you’ll wind up replacing last week’s heroes with this week’s goats. That’s a good way to lose a lot in fantasy baseball.

    You were considering dropping Estrada? That’s kinda crazy. I just added Moreland to help plug the Freeman/Aramis gaps recently created on my team. I wouldn’t be surprised if Moreland managed 25 hr and a .270 average this season.

    • Carns says:

    So of course I could look at your rankings and all the preseason stuff and think “hey, it’s a week in, nothing could have possibly changed that much” but still I find myself asking..

    at this point, after what you’ve seen thus far with teams and lineups and the stars aligning, would you still take Marte over Domonic Brown? My leaguemates seem to have never heard of either so I could go back and forth all year long. Which do you prefer this very second?

      • c0wfunk says:
        (link)

        @Grey: yeah – I kinda figured. After drafting Marte second to last, dropping him for a brief dalliance with Miller, grabbing Brown for an 0/4 against Harvey, it strikes me I shoulda just kept Marte the whole time through and not been so freaking impatient. This is why I’m usually leading the league in “moves” .. too bad there’s no points for that!

        • c0wfunk says:
          (link)

          @c0wfunk: I guess I did gain Eaton on my DL slot in the midst of all of that maneuvering so maybe that’ll be helpful!

          What’s your outlook on Eaton when he gets back? Still loving him this year?

    Should I grab Buck and drop Jesus or is he finally going to show up?

    • @Dominic: Buck never stays hot for more than a few games. Keep Jesus. He may have a tough time against tough righties, but even if Buck outperforms him over the next week Jesus will be better over the long haul.

      Actually watched the game yesterday. Hit a rocket that should’ve been a double down the first base line and Ike made a great play on it. His BABIP is .238 right now which would lead me to believe he’s having a bit of bad luck right now.

    Ugh – someone in my 10-team league was autopicked and has now dropped B.J. Upton.

    I don’t want BJ Upton and I don’t need BJ Upton.

    But I still have to pick him up with a No.2 waiver priority, right? He’s too valuable just to leave there, right? I would drop Josh Rutledge to make the move.

    • malacoda says:
      (link)

      @Chris: He will hit between 20-30 hr and steal between 30-40 bases. Do you want that on your team, or as a weapon to be used against you?

        @malacoda: ha great comment

      • Chris says:
        (link)

        @malacoda:

        True. But the rub is that we’re a 6×6 HTH league with OBP – so any weekly steals/homers will be offset by his .240 BA and .290 OBP.

        • sanfran1966 says:
          (link)

          @Chris:

          Pick him up, hold for a week or two, then package a trade when he gets a hot streak if you don’t like his results.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @malacoda: excellent comment, indeed. You gotta pick him up. You going to wait for another 6th rounder to get dropped so you can use that No.2 priority?

    • Hawk says:

      Waiver priority is vastly overrated. Upton is a 25 Hr / 35 SB kind of guy. Don’t be silly. Of course you want him.

    Grey,

    I got counter-offered a trade in my RCL after I tried to buy low on Cespedes and Halladay.

    He wants Alex Gordon and James Shields for Yoenis and Roy.

    Worth it?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Grey said he wouldn’t have drafted Halladay and wishes he told you to sell him last week so I’m gonna guess he’ll tell you to hold.

    • Big Magoo says:
      (link)

      @Belligerent Mariners Fan: It’s basically Gordon and Shields for Cespedes with the way that Halladay has looked. I might be in the minority here, but I’d take Yoenis. You’d be upgrading from Gordon and only really be losing some Ks from Shields. Cespedes has a good shot at 30/20 if he stays healthy.

    • Hawk says:
      (link)

      @Belligerent Mariners Fan:

      I would need to see two or three good starts from Halladay before I started him. The question right now is “Do you trade Gordon + Shields for Cespedes?” I don’t.

        @Grey: Yeah, it’s a stupid setting in my long time league. Basically a bunch of idiots years ago couldn’t get their lineups set on Monday, so the commish made it a league that starts on Tuesday.

    Never NEVER have I had such a rough start to a season or such a horrible weekend…. And I’m laying the blame right at the foot of Razzball and YOU, Mr. Gray -where it belongs….

    What a horrible start to my season!!!! …

    Excuse me ………….. ……. I had to open another box of Kleenex there.. .

    PPPPBBBBBsssss (sniff) (sniff)… Sorry… NO!!!! … What I am I doing saying, I’m sorry to you and the Razzball lot for..

    Going on…

    All of my best pitchers blew up last weekend… Sure, it happened to everyone else… But that is not my point… My point is, it probably wouldn’t have happened if I had not been on here wasting my time and had been diverted from the true FBB path by you and your mob …

    My BA is below the Mendoza line… I even cut Reynolds who was facing Price on Sunday to pick up Raj Davis Sunday… This is a microcosm of my season so far…

    Daivs goes O for… And M Reynolds has the best day he will probably have all season and one the best days of his career… Luckily, I got him back.. Now watch him die on the vine – suffering (what I now call ) the Razzball effect!!!

    The only bright spot is, I plugged in Masterson and Saunders back to back from the puddle for 2 great starts…. It was Santana or Saunders, yesterday…

    Signed, Bitter and looking for someone to blame – and having found them..

    PS… Fujikawa is on all my teams … Late late pick… I’ll take the credit for that … SO THERE!!!

    Grey,
    I just wanted to drop a quick thank you for your pre-season rankings. My team is stacked (offensively). Here is my team for a yahoo standard 10-team 5×5.

    1. (1) Miguel Cabrera (Det – 3B)
    2. (20) Justin Upton (Atl – OF)
    3. (21) Adam Jones (Bal – OF)
    4. (40) Paul Goldschmidt (Ari – 1B)

    6. (60) Brandon Phillips (Cin – 2B)
    7. (61) Jimmy Rollins (Phi – SS)
    8. (80) Aroldis Chapman (Cin – RP)
    9. (81) James Shields (KC – SP)
    10. (100) Roy Halladay (Phi – SP)
    11. (101) Jeff Samardzija (ChC – SP)
    12. (120) Sergio Romo (SF – RP)
    13. (121) Tom Wilhelmsen (Sea – RP)
    14. (140) Grant Balfour (Oak – RP)
    15. (141) Ernesto Frieri (LAA – RP)
    16. (160) David Ortiz (Bos – 1B)
    17. (161) Danny Espinosa (Was – 2B,SS)
    18. (180) Jonathan Lucroy (Mil – C)
    19. (181) Starling Marte (Pit – OF)
    20. (200) Manny Machado (Bal – 3B)
    21. (201) Ryan Cook (Oak – RP) – Dropped for streamers against the Houston Astro’s
    22. (220) Matt Garza (ChC – SP)
    23. (221) David Hernandez (Ari – RP)
    24. (240) Shelby Miller (StL – RP)
    25. (241) Jayson Werth (Was – OF)

    Picked up Lance Berkman with Ortiz on the DL!

    Quick question, I was able to get Espinosa as my backup 2B/SS and have not needed to play him yet. Considering the prospect of injury to those positions, would you consider dropping him (or some other batter) so that I can more effectively stream since I essentially punted SP?

    Second, who are your favorite middle relievers with SP eligibility for help with ratio’s and occasional vulture wins?

    Thirdly, at what point would it be a good idea to drop Halladay (a.k.a. this years Lincecum-all-over-your-era-and-whip)? I haven’t started him yet as I am hoping he will turn it around? I know I went against your advice on drafting him, but he fell 20-30 spots lower than your rankings!

    Fourthly, how are us commenter’s doing with providing “daquiries” for you, your analysis is top rate and worth so much more than the “price of admission”. Donation Coming your way!

    Good tip on Moreland. I’m in H2H so don’t carry a bench bat but really need to sit Howard and stream a schmotato right now… Howard looked great in spring and I paid next to nothing for him so it seemed worth the flier, but dear Lord he needs to be benched. The ABs I’ve seen are so horrendous — he’s just lost up there, even worse than his terrible numbers indicate (if that’s even possible). I know it’s too early to drop so for now I’ll dump a fungible pitcher and stream Moreland and hope for the best. Viva schmotato!

      Henderson. Marlins are having a lot of offense problems – Cishek save chances may be few and far between and it’s not like he’s Mariano or Kimbrel out there.

    Billy Hamilton is sitting on my wire. Should I look the other way when I see him like I do when I see that fat chick I never should have made out with? Or should I find a spot in my roster.

    Grey,
    ‘Member back when you used to love Anderson? To use your own words, we were younger then, you and I. I know it was vs. Mariners and Astros, but is some of that love starting to creep back? Do you think he can get back to that mid to upper 7K/9 that he flashed back in ’09 prior to all the injuries? I watched both of his starts, and I think the curve, which he can consistently throw for strikes, along with the slider should be able to get him back up out of the 6′s. Obviously, we are a quite a ways from batted ball numbers normalizing for the year, but the early numbers look good. I have drafted/stashed the guy every year after I picked him up off waivers years ago, so I kind of feel like he is my son. Is there any room for my son, conceived when I was 6, back in your heart?

    After reviewing the tape on Boggs last night, it wasn’t quite as bad as I thought. It started off with a little flare over first base that fell in for a double. And then Kozma kicked around a soft chop over the mound. But, Choo did make some solid contact on his double down the line. That’s as positive as I can get at this point since I am nursing a little bit of the bottle flu and trying to inflate my ego, a little, again after getting punched in the face last night by a girl.

    So I’m watching the Reds-Cards game cause I have Latos as my ace on 3 of my teams. After Shin-shizz drops 2 of Yads flyballs I call Dusty. Me and Dusty have a understanding. I call and leave messages and he doesn’t call me back. We’re tight.
    I says to Dusty, We need to put on the Aw- shizz ,Shin -shizz outfield defensive shift on. We move Shin-shizz to the wall since we can all see he can’t go back on a ball and not go blind. Then we bring in the left and right fielder and pinch them in towards centerfield. Dusty says he has this covered. He applied for a handicap card for Shin-shizz and he get’s to wear 2 gloves now. Shin-shizz has to wear the handicap plaque when playing center through. Dusty told him it’s a new kind of bling and it comes in red so Shin-shizz is cool with it. I also asked Dusty to move Frazier up to 4th in the batting order too. I have him on all my teams. Thanks Grey. Still waiting for Dusty to get back to me on that. Me and the Dust-man are tight…………

    Also, my only closer right now is G Holland and I’m not sure why, especially with League, Perez, Henderson, Herrera, Ben-oke-euerque, Santos, and Veras all available. Could also drop Andrelton Simmons cause I have Tulo, Castro, and Espinosa that are SS eligible. Any moves there?

    @Grey. Good day, fantasy baseballers. In a vacuum, which of the following would you be willing to give up to get Andrus, keeping in mind that my SP is a bit light on Ks?

    Kuroda, Beckett, Estrada, Ogando.

    Thanks!

    Just need a little reassurance here. Currently sitting dead last in HR and RBI (by quite a bit) after a week. 12 team roto.

    2b-Rutledge
    3b-Beltre
    SS-Segura
    OF-McCutchen, A. Jones, Jennings
    Util- Ike, Hosmer

    I should be fine for power, right?

    Public admission of complete wrong-headedness: Last week in this here venue I said something along the lines of “Astros aren’t that bad.” Yeah…maybe I’ma rethink that. I realized this as I was streaming Joe Saunders. They are so bad that I was willing to stream a Saunders double start even though start two is versus the Rangers.

    • JoeC says:
      (link)

      @OaktownSteve: Yes, they are beyond bad. I definitely think they’re going about building a team wrong. I don’t think you collect a bunch of guys who mostly strike out and sometimes hit home runs. Better to have a team that, while light on power, can actually HIT THE BALL. Makes it easier on the entire team as you’re not constantly having your innings go 1-2-3 outs like clockwork.

      But, silver lining, this is very good news for the other teams in the AL West. They’re going to just rack up the victories and it wouldn’t surprise me if BOTH wild cards come out of the AL West.

    ******THERE’S A NEW POST FOR FOLLOWUPS FOR ME.******

  126. Grey — Am I extrapolating correctly from one of the questions above that you’d rather have Berkman than Torri Hunter? Berkman and I have had good times in the past, but I worry about his injury risk. I’ve got Hunter in this 14-team 6×6 redraft roto league where AGon is my 1B. If I had Berkman, AGon would essentially replace Hunter in the OF. The other OF on this team are: Pence, Revere, Choo, Adam Jones.

    Do you see your “signature” on teams when readers list their rosters? Every time I see Goldschmidt, Jones, Upton, etc., I think this guy used Razzball rankings for his draft.

    Also, a couple of simple lineup question for today … I have to sit 1 from each group in my lineups tonight:

    League 1:
    Revere (vs. NYM/Gee)
    Rutledge (@ SF/Lincecum)
    Nunez (@ CLE/Carrasco)

    League 2:
    Espinosa (vs. CWS/Peavy)
    Rutledge (@ SF/Lincecum)
    Nunez (@ CLE/Carrasco)
    Marte (@ ARI/McCarthy)

    Thanks!

    Grey – good stuff, love the recaps.

    Am I overvaluing Matt Harvey. have negotiations going on that would net me Harvey for Jo-fer and Freese with a draft pick coming back to me.

    I have Longo at third and Freese would slide in at Util. I like Harvey but this is too much to move, isn’t it?

      @Jay: It is impossible to overvalue Harvey. He is a god!

    @Grey. I’ve now been offered Andrus and Matt Garza for Ogando and Kuroda. My other SPs are Greinke, Beckett, Estrada, Morrow, Niese, + Brett Anderson. Andrus would be an upgrade over Zach Cozart and Jed Lowrie, who are currently manning SS and MI for me. I have very good pop and decent speed on my team. The team that made the offer also has Starlin Castro, Segura, Hanley, Jemile Weeks and Kelly Johnson, so plenty of SS/MI options for them.

    Should I accept, reject or counter?

    My day yesterday
    1. Watch Latos pitch pretty well… only for choo to blow it
    2. Go oh well no win at least maybe I get two good innings between Rosenthal and Boogs with a save.
    3. Nevermind Rosenthal can’t pitch today apperantly maybe boogs will do something… He definetly did thanks for the 162 ERA for that day what a f*** catastrophe what site told me to pick him up… Just kidding I could never be mad at you Grey your mustache is to cute
    4. The only silver linning to this whole thing I do have Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce on my team.

    Any chance of this happening or they just talking out their CBAss again?

      I just googled and see nothing like that. I do see the Brewers don’t need a 4th starter for a bit so they’re gonna have Fiers fill the Narveson role since he went on the DL.
