Rosters are just about to go from Foster’s oil cans to forties for our annual tradition of getting completely wasted on rookie nookie.  I remember in September of 1997, this young talkative player debuted.  He could spin a yarn as well as he could spin his bat.  That player had modest power in the minors and was hitting .361 in Triple-A at the time of his call-up.  His name:  Sean Casey.  He had a solid career, hitting for modest power and a solid average.  Later he became more known for his defense.  Not with his glove, but how hitters would purposely not get a hit so they didn’t have to stand on first and hear him talk.  He’d say there’s nothing a good conversation can’t defend.  What is all of this getting at?  That first year Sean Casey was called up, he didn’t do anything.  Looked totally overmatched.  Now if I would’ve dropped Ryan Klesko to grab Sean Casey, I would’ve missed out on a damn fine September from Klesko.  If that happened, it may have shook my confidence in the great game of baseball and the ability to grow sideburns, and maybe I would’ve never have went on to become the fantasy baseball ‘pert you’ve grown to love and secretly dream up of scenarios where we’re hanging out and sharing a burrito.  A parallel universe none of us want to imagine.  So, be careful about who you drop in the coming days as players are called up.  I love Joc Pederson, I’ll probably make him my preseason NL Rookie of the Year next year, but this year he may not even have a starting job.*  *Fantasy Players who read this also searched for Kevin Maas, Sam Horn and Nadir Bupkis.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Steve Pearce – He’s breaking out in a big way in what is his age 31 season.  Yeah, that doesn’t even make sense if you say it in a British accent, and a British accent makes everything sound smarter.  You can say the earth is flat in a British accent and it sounds plausible.  Pearce is swinging a hot bat right now, and that makes him worth picking up, but he’s not much more.

Jon Jay – Some day Jon Jay is going to go into a 5th grade class and speak to them about the founding of this great nation.  After that, he will become known as the wacko who actually thinks he knows something about history because of his name.  Until then, he’s hitting well and playing against righties.

Jorge Soler – Between Soler and Baez, I’m thinking next year I move to Chicago and write each roundup from Wrigley.  Sure, I will need to move 501 feet away from home plate when Giancarlo visits… Oh my God, I just thought of something, imagine Epstein is able to get Giancarlo this offseason?  Sorry, where was I?  I just fainted after histrionically putting a handkerchief to my forehead.  Oh, and here’s my Jorge Soler fantasy.

Travis d’Arnaud – Since July 1st, he has 8 homers while batting .252.  Okay, that’s not exactly tearing the roof off the mother and Hammer dancing around, but it’s not bad if you’re struggling at catcher.

Justin Turner – He’s having one of those seasons that the Dodgers tend to produce.  One year it was A.J. Ellis as he welcomed immigrants and some fantasy value.  This year it’s been Turner.  I don’t trust Turner to play every day once everyone’s healthy, but he’s playing now.

Joe Panik – Right now, he’s probably being picked up solely by people who lost their middle infielder and are subconsciously free associating.  What do I do?  What do I do?  I can’t feel my fingers!  I’m having a stroke!  Panik!

Alex Guerrero – As I said last week with Pederson and Guerrero (if you click a player’s name, you’ll see the last few mentions of him), Guerrero probably won’t be playing every day when he’s called up.  He also might be using a hallowed-out seashell to help him hear.

Arismendy Alcantara – Y’all fickle!  You loved this guy a month ago, now he can’t shine your shoes with hundred dollar bills?  Sure, he’s not hitting for much of an average but he has 5 homers and 7 steals in 45 games.  Multiple that by three for a full season’s numbers.  Yes, you’re struggling to pick up a 15-homer, 21-steal middle infielder.

Dilson Herrera – Here’s what I said this morning about Herrera, “(He’s) the Mets 20-year-old middle infield prospect.  Too bad Mookie Wilson and Keith Hernandez didn’t adopt a kid in 1994, he could be called up now.  Or…did they?  Yeah, prolly.  So, Herrera has solid pop and speed.  Like Pedroia-ish.  He’s also tiny.  Not quite Altuve tiny.  Five Herreras could fit in Ralph Kiner’s casket.  Maybe 7 or 8 Altuves could.  See the difference?  Herrera doesn’t seem to have the batting average skills of Pedroia, but he’s still young and could grow into them.  In keepers and NL-Only leagues, I’d aggressively go after him.  Murphy doesn’t seem long for the Mets, and Herrera could be the 2nd baseman of the future.  In redraft leagues for right now?  Meh.  I’d have to be desperate.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Jose Ramirez – He has little-to-no power, but does SAGNOF with some of the best of them, according to his minor league numbers (38 steals in Double-A).  This is all window dressing to him hitting .400 in the last week.  Indians have no reason to not play him, assuming he doesn’t say anything negative about Pocahontas.

Zach Walters – I bit the bullet the other day and grabbed Walters for my corner infidel spot.  This could either lead you to think, “Hmm, maybe I should grab Walters too, since he does have great power,” or “Jesus, Grey’s team is awful if he needs Walters as his corner man.”

Nick Castellanos – Rudy’s been making some tools on the sly, and one such tool is the Hitter Planner.  It used to have casual sex with the Hitter-Tron, but since it’s still in Beta and the Hitter-Tron thought it was Betamax, they stopped humping.  It’s more of a tool for stacking, but if you scroll down you see HP loves Castellanos.  Bonus for all of youse that read all my fakakta shizz, here’s the Pitcher Planner, which doesn’t replace the Stream-o-Nator, merely adds to it.

Maikel Franco – He falls into the Joc Pederson category.  Could be called up, don’t think that means much for this year.

Oswaldo Arcia – Tentatively adding him to this week’s Buy because he gets real cold and goes 0-for-4 for days on end.  When he’s hot, he’s out of this worldo.

Drew Stubbs – I get it, he doesn’t play every day.  He’s also the 41st best OF on our Player Rater.  That means unless you’re in a ten-team three outfielder league, he should be owned.

Adam Eaton – You people failed me.  I asked you to get Eaton over 50% owned, so I didn’t have to write another blurb about him.  Yet, there he sits at 46% owned.  Hmm… I just realized with 30% of people now playing fantasy football and 30% just eliminated from their league, Eaton is actually at 106% owned.  Great, now some of you people need to drop him just to get him back to 100%.

Edinson Volquez – This will almost definitely come back to haunt me until the end of days that Kirk Cameron keeps warning us about, but I’m streaming Volquez in one league per the Stream-o-Nator.

Tsuyoshi Wada – His 2.05 ERA, 1.05 WHIP is enough reason to own him, i.e., so Wada Wada you want.  His Stream-o-Nator value for his Saturday start is solid, so if your fear of commitment issues are getting the best of you, go for one start.

Jake Peavy – Here’s a new sexy name!  Next thing you know I’m going to tout Dan Haren (his matchup today isn’t terrible).

Zach Putnam – I wonder if Nolan Ryan were to noogie Robin Ventura one more time, Ventura would instill Putnam as the closer.  Like he’s just slightly off from the first noogie’ing and one more noogie’ing will flash fry his brain into Correct Mode.  Sorry, was going for the world record for most times noogie’ing was used in one sentence.  If I could’ve only squeezed three more into that!

Brett Cecil – Goodbye, Casey Janssen!  Don’t let the door hit you in your S’s.  Hopefully.  xcbashiocbsai  Sorry, fingers crossed that Cecil takes over.

Sergio Romo – I just went over him this morning.  If you scroll around and click a thing or two, I’m sure you can find it.  Look at me having faith in you!

Edward Mujica – It’s either a very good week for vulture saves or I’m so desperate for saves in my leagues that I’m seeing potential closers where there are none.  Probably the latter, but let’s hope for the former…if latter and former are what I think they are!

Eric O’Flaherty – Crazy thing is his stuff looks fantastic, yet he seems like a totally down-to-earth guy.  Just a really exceptional human being.  What?  O’flattery will get you everywhere.

SELL

Brandon Moss – In the 2nd half, he has 2 homers while batting .193.  When Brandon Moss’s average is near Kate Moss’s weight, there’s a problem.  When his power is near her sobriety rate, there’s a big problem.  To measure that in emoji hearts, that’s a negative one emoji heart.

Mark Trumbo – So, the early draft pick of Trumbo didn’t work out that well.  Between injury and just suckitude, he’s been dazzling if dazzling means the exact opposite of what you think it means.

Chris Davis – Yes, he hits the occasional homer, but he’s doing little else.  I hate to bag on Chris Davis after losing Ann B. Davis this year (thanks, Emmys’ in memoriam!), but even Sam the Butcher would wonder if there’s not someone other than Davis with better chops for the job.

    6 keepers in Dynasty League for next year are Abreu, Baez, Bryant, Springer, Soler and either Yelich (20th round keep) or Bautista (2nd round keep). Would you pick up Pederson or someone else for your NA spot? Can also keep Goldy as a first rounder.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @MarkedMan: I’d keep Goldy…. I’d put Pederson in my NA spot

            @Grey: The only issue is that if Joc gets called up this year (likely) will have to activate him off NA spot. Dont think he will have enough playing time down the stretch.

    Is C. Davis still worthy of keeping next year or is this season going to be more of the norm than last year.
    possible keepers (must keep 3, can keep 4)
    Yahoo 6×6, XBH and QS plus traditional. People tend to draft SP’s early or keep at least one, I kept Felix this year.
    Chris Davis Bal – 1B,3B ?
    Dee Gordon LAD – 2B,SS
    Todd Frazier Cin – 1B,3B
    Javier Báez ChC – 2B,SS
    Adam Jones Bal – OF ?
    Avisail García CWS – OF
    Max Scherzer Det – SP
    Adam Wainwright StL – SP

    Stuck in second place, 10 points out of first and 10 points ahead of third not much I can do but think about next year.

    • Birdmann says:
      (link)

      @Birdmann: Jones and Todd for sure and I am leaning toward Baez since he will be 2b/SS next year in Yahoo. I need to see where Mad Max goes. Dee only cause he would be gone when it was my turn to draft.

      • ashtray says:
        (link)

        @Birdmann: If you can only keep 4 I don’t know that Davis is worth keeping. I’d probably lean Frazier/Jones/Scherzer for sure. The rest woiuld be a toss up so if you really want Baez or Gordon then leave Davis out of it.

        • Birdmann says:

    Have the first seed in H2H playoffs which I think will get me to the championship week of 9/15. The two teams I’m most likely to face both have 4 closers as do I. Unfortunately my fourth closer is Janssen. The 5 candidates I list below are all available. Should I hold onto Janssen and hope or switch out? If you say hold for now and Toronto announces a change then who do I go out and grab?

    Cecil or Janssen 3@BAL, 4@NYY
    Putnam 3@KC, 3@TB
    O’ Flaherty 3vTEX, 3vPHI

      @J-FOH: Hey J-FOH- I reluctantly agreed to participate in a fantasy football league this year. It’s a coed family thing so I doubt the competition will be very fierce, but I want to win nonetheless. Having seen how little I know about football at the razz radio thing in SD, you know I am going to need all the help I can get. Do you know how frequently the razzball football rankings are updated? I don’t want to accidentally draft some injured or suspended schmo. Thanks buddy!

        @royce!: Jay does good over there. Just don’t draft Arian Foster or Steven Jackson and you’ll be fine…I’m kidding, but find us n comments on draft day and we can work you through it…or just give me your login and password

        • royce! says:

          @J-FOH: Ha! re: comment and password- I had honestly considered asking someone to just draft for me, but my wife’s cousin who is running it wants to do some video meeting thing (people are all over the US), so it’d be pretty obvious.

          I’ll avoid Arian Foster and Steven Jackson.

    would you use one of your 10 keepers on a $3 stash of Segura? or do you think he’s tarnished his brand to the point where he would be a dirt cheap redraft not worthy of a keeper spot?

    here are the 10 keepers I have tagged as of now.
    Puig $35
    Goldy $29
    Donaldson $17
    Rusney $18
    Baez $13

    Love the presentation of the Pitcher Planner. You guys should make it sortable by $ value, by day.

    You might say SON does this already, but to use SON to its fullest, you have to go through and write down the best pitchers who are available to pick up each day, then review your list and select which pitchers you want to pick up throughout the week.

    If you had the Pitcher Planner graphic presentation, you’d be able to easily sort through the whole week and see you’d rather have X pitcher on Tuesday than Y pitcher on Friday.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      You can sort by day on SON by putting date in the box above the dates

    • @TysonFrozenChicken: Thanks. You need to have only the $ amount in order to sort by that column. So you’d need an extra 10 columns to handle that type of sorting. You can also sort the Streamonator by $ and then filter by ‘Own%’ to identify best candidates over next couple of days. That’s what I do for Y! Friends and Family league.

    H2H 10 team league. Last week before playoffs but I need to win this week to secure a bye week. Guy I’m facing has a shit ton of starters going and I’m trying to keep up with him to at least win Strike outs and Wins.

    1) Would you start Kazmir against the Angels on Sunday?

    2) Need to drop a pitcher to stream…

    DeGrom – pitched well tonight and has a nice match versus the Marlins next week.’
    Kazmir – faces the Angels Sunday and I’m afraid to start him there. Otherwise next start would be against the Astros next week.
    Liriano – pitches on Sunday and has a nice start against the Reds at home. Looked good last time out, prefer not to drop.
    Fiers – Likewise, has a start tomorrow @SF that looks solid, so not sure I can drop him.

    I’m thinking it has to be DeGrom or Kazmir. But if I don’t even plan on starting Kazmir this week, do I drop him for a streaming and hope to get him back in a couple days or drop DeGrom?

    3) Streamer for tomorrow:

    Peavy v MIL (Fiers)
    Wada @ STL (Gonzalez)

    • Grey

    16 team league, where it’s very hard to find good pitchers. is it likely enough (and worth it) to grab petit over wily p? nuno/buchannon/worley are other streamer types in this league. petit will be gone soon i’m sure. QS league.

        @J-FOH: Hey Jack- couldn’t find you on the football site – found out the details about my football league. It only has one QB, one RB, 2 WR, a TE, a FLEX, and a D/ST, with 5 bench spots. It’s 14 teams. From what I can tell, this is non-standard in at least a couple of ways. Can you think of any draft strategies that would take advantage of this?

        • J-FOH

          J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @royce!: is there point per reception or ppr as we call it?

          • royce! says:
            (link)

            @J-FOH: Sorry, should have included that…it is not. For receptions, it’s 1 pt for every 10 yards, 6 for a TD. I have no idea if that is standard.

            • J-FOH says:
              (link)

              @royce!: thats standard. go by Jays ranks as you draft and take best player available. When you start building a bench I like Mike Evans, Kelvin Benjamin, Devota Freeman, and Jordan Matthews as rookies who will make some noise. Take your QB later. if you followed me on twitter you could DM me while you draft

    After drafting Votto, Rizzo, and Belt, I may be down to having zero first basemen. Do I pick up Dunn (wire is barren for 1B), or hope Rizzo is healthy next week and grab Soler?

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Shoop Da Whoop: i dropped him about 5 days into turning his season around (it was a few days before all star break), due to mistakenly thinking i needed more innings to get minimum that week. this was due to ignorance about yahoo having the last 3 days of that H2H “week” going AFTER the all star break. espn at least had those 3 days go WITH the week after the all star break. why break up a week if you have that choice. yahoo is bizarro world when it comes to choices like that.

            Thoughts on Baez? He’s an anchor on my avg and I don’t need the HRs but I don’t want to give up on him. The league is 14 teams so there is nothing on waivers unless I take a flyer on Owings or Guererro.

    keepers due in some leagues tomorrow. here we go
    1. altuve/jones and 1 of soler/springer/bruce/gordon/vargas. net steals so altuve is worth even more. i’m thinking bruce’s ADP falls so low that he’s better value just redrafting. gordon seems easy value to grab all the time. OPS league as well. with K’s so bruce and springer get a hit there.
    2. OPS/net steals/K’s/ here too.
    mccutchen/trout and 1 out of soler/altuve/frazier/harper.
    3. same categories.
    rizzo/upton and 2 out of donaldson/dickerson/vargas/braun/f-her/soler.
    4. XBH/BB/Net steals but no OPS. rizzo and 1 of puig/desmond/rendon/soler

    Pick 5 keepers:

    Rendon polanco soler sale Scherzer

    10 tm h2h 5×5 plus TB. And QS.
    I traded away a lot of picks this year. Thinking about doing more to go for it.

    Can make a deal for puig and rendon but it costs me soler and polanco plus my 7 & 9 th rd picks and I wouldn’t pick for the first 6 rds.

    Goddamn Miggy. After being in first all of 2013, I lost in the first round of the h2h playoffs. Been in first most of 2014 as well, and I have Miggy again. Playoffs don’t start until the 8th, but would you drop an OF bench bat now to pick up a backup 3B? Wire is thin pickings: Bogaerts, Middlebrooks, Gillaspie, Turner.

    I have:

    OF- Bautista
    OF- Fowler
    OF- JD Martinez
    OF- Soler
    BN- W. Myers
    BN- A. Garcia

    If the Tigers remain in contention, I figure they’ll play Miggy despite his ankle and he’ll still provide more value than the dudes on the wire.

    jesus, i’m having an awful managing week. soler is benched for 2 homer game, in yesterday though. alcantara gets a steal and 2 homers on bench. andrus steal on bench. arenado plays everyday. (he’s strictly home bat now, till i’m proven otherwise). opp’s navarro gets steal and i’m tied in steals and homers, having benched 2 and 4. wish duda could’ve cut those 5 homers from last week in half, used some this week. i didn’t need to win homers by 10 last week.

    • goodfold2 says:

      @goodfold2: worst part, is had i put in soler for his 2 homers i would’ve been comfortable playing andrus/alcantara for the steals, and benched arenado, and played 1 of andrus/acantara for the steals. getting a snowball they call it (that’s what she said)

    1. quackenbush or o’flaherty? one has job for sure, other is on team that might win more games. could do both and have 5 closers. but would cut into SP and have to drop one of mccarthy/quintana.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: also this is H2H league with 5 pickups per week, so cutting SP has draw backs. nobody else has more than 4, most have less of course.

    I must broach the forbidden zone and ask who would you rather have at catcher ROS?Martin,Salty, Dioner or d’Arnaud? Currently have Vogt and that’s going so well. 12 team 5×5,Just want to park an old clunker by the curb and forget about it.

    • AJ says:

      @Hondo: Would have to say d’Arnuad on that one

    Grey,

    Playoffs start tomorrow in my big money h2h league. Need your help setting up my roster. Guy I’m facing has 6 closers and I have 4, so I should be able to win k’s and wins but would like to put up a fight in saves. I also have more starters going than he does, so quality is more important than quantity. So here are a few questions I haveif you ddon’t mind humoring me.

    1) which two guys are the best bet for saves this week: Romo, Quackenbush, Neshek, Otero, Cook

    2) Hold Perez or drop for Yadier?

    3) Hold Baez or drop for Aybar, Betts, or Alcides

    4) Rank top 3 hitters for best bench bat this week: Soler, Polanco, Alcantara, Betts, Pearce, Cain, Beltran

    5) Rank these starts: DeGrom @MIA, Wilson @HOU, Fiers v STL

    Thank you so much.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1) Romo, Quack 2) Hold 3) Hold unless you need steals, then Alcides 4) Soler, Betts, Cain 5) deGrom, Wilson

    Who would you rather have in a points keeper league? We have to sacrifice a pick to keep them.
    Josh Donaldson (8)
    Paul Goldschmidt (1)

    I have a chance to trade away Goldy for Donaldson to make a playoff push, but I just wanted to know if this is a good value for Donaldson next year.

      Sounds solid

    10 tm h2h 5 keeper first five rds are keeper rds.
    I traded away most if my early picks and now only a 7&9 remain within our first five rds after keepers.
    My roster is dArnaud freeman carpenter beltre Zobrist arenado Stanton j upton josh Hamilton soler polanco

    Deadline deal proposed to me :
    My soler polanco 7&9 rd picks for his puig McCann and Dee and a 12&16.

    Do I take and go for broke?
    If you need to know my rotation

        @Grey: ok cool

        Drop Vargas or Zobrist to make room?

          Vargas

  117. Shoop Da Whoop says:

    Yost said recently that Holland is overworked.

    So he throws him out in 4 of 5 games. None of them save situations, 1 or 2 with them trailing.

    I’m not a GM or a manager, but that’s probably not a good idea.

      Can give Valbuena a try since he’s hot

    (link)

    League mate dropped Kazmir in a 12-team H2H. I know he’s gotten shelled alst two times, but they were against the best team in baseball. Worth the waiver add for ROS? Or has he become a match up guy?

    • Shoop Da Whoop says:
      (link)

      @The JoGarza: Unless he gets skipped or put in the bullpen, his next matchup will be the Astros. Even as a matchup guy, you gotta go with that one.
