Grey Albright just may be the greatest visionary of our time. A modern day Nostradamus even. I’ll admit that I didn’t want to buy into the hype surrounding Paul Goldschmidt  but now I feel like I deserve a good d!cks slapping. This behemoth homered off the legends known as Kershaw and Kenley Jansen Wednesday night and he’s now batting 313 with 9 dongs, 30 ribbys and 4 base thefts. I haven’t seen this kind of savagery displayed since I witnessed a crew of catholic priests running a train on a teenage boy I once modeled with. Needless to say, I wish I owned him as the man is a true points league monster. How do you do it Grey? I consider myself one of the top 5 most all around talented fantasy players on planet earth and that includes football, basketball and obviously baseball, but Mr. Albright just may have me licked when it comes to roto and I don’t mean sexually. He’s got a mustache fit for an 80’s porn star as well as a heart of gold and you gotta respect it. Enough slurping of the boss. Let’s get to what I saw this week.

Mark Reynolds - A few years ago I looked at Reynolds and thought him to be everything I wanted in a man. I’m speaking of course about his power/speed combo of course, not sleeping with him of course. No, no, I’d never go down that road, that is unless I was paid an exorbitant amount of cash money, or maybe even given free rent. Back to Reynolds: Should he even be know as the “mini donkey” anymore? Dunn’s best days are behind him and Mini donkey owners are more than likely giving it to big donkey owners up the rectum in head to head points leagues, or any type of league for that matter. Now that’s beastiality. The year I finally pass on Reynolds, he returns to form. Woe is me. My hope is that you Reynolds owners truly cherish this angel, for I miss him dearly.

Eric Hosmer - Hosmer continued his historical comeback season Thursday night, making up for all the pain and anguish he caused his owners last year. Wait, what? That was his first long dong of the season??? And he only has 11 rbi’s??? Hold on a second….OK, I’m back. I just ran outside and gave an epic beat down to an elderly man walking the sidewalk. It’s just that I have so much anger built up from owning Hosmer in every league I participated in last season and I’ve refused to acknowledge his presence until just now. I had no idea there was so much hate left in my soul towards this peasant. If you ever meet me in person at one of my meet and greets once I become famous, never, ever, ever, ever, never ever, bring up Eric F##KING Hosmer. I wish good luck to his owners though. I’m kidding, I don’t. RIP(rest in piss).

Ricky Romero - YIKES!

Delmon Young - I liked Delmon much better when he was nearly killing umpires with wood. I was hoping that aggression and intensity would cross over to the professional ranks and he’d one day become a mix of Milton Bradley and Nelson Cruz. What he has become is a journeyman outfielder who can’t play the field, yet he now resides in the national league, which for some inept reason, still makes pitchers hit. Tell me how you enjoy the strategies involved with pitchers bunting a runner over or maybe pulling a Larussa and batting your pitcher 8th. What’s that you say? You think that’s real baseball? In the words of the legendary Nick Buser, “You’re an idiot.” Delmon started off hot, and by that I mean he had one good game and hasn’t done a thing since. Feel free to scroll past his name on the waiver wire.

Scott Kazmir - Don’t do it. Don’t you do it. I know he struck out 10 last night against an A’s lineup more depleted than Lindsay Lohan’s soul, but it won’t happen again. If for some reason it does, this is one of the more improbable comebacks we shall have ever witnessed. I simply don’t believe. The guy has been fish food for years and I’m not buyin’ it. Word to your mother.

Josh Hamilton - With 14.5 points on the week Ham-Bone is showing signs of life. I believe I advised on holding him as his legend will only grow from here. Homering in back to back games is just what we wanted to see from this former prodigy. Maybe that eyesight thing had been bothering him again, or the quitting of nicotine or hookers or whatever his latest issue was. He’s figured it out now, though, and it’s time to reap the benefits. It’s possible his wife allowed him one booty call a week as an incentive to start hitting again. As the great Captain Ron once said, ” Incentives are important. I learned that in rehab.” As did I captain. As did I. I almost did this entire post based on Captain Ron but figured the world wasn’t ready for such a innovative idea. Soon though maybe.

Pedro Alvarez - Pedro finally showed some life last night after embarrassing himself for the past few weeks, and maybe it’s just what he needs to get him going. It’s amazing to me how a guy can have a body comparable to our podcast host Nick Capozzi, and play a sport on a professional level. I mean, I have the body of a greek God and can’t hit the ball out the infield. Anyway, I tire of having this pig drain my team average on a daily basis but am pretty much stuck with him, as I’m sure many of you are as well.

Phil Hughes - Going a combined 14 innings with 18 ks and only giving up 2 runs in 2 starts is a beautiful thing. Not as beautiful as Nick Minaj bending over and grabbing her ankles in front of me, but almost. I was shocked to see him on waiver still a day or two ago and I pounced like Sky when he’s driving around in his van and sees pre-adolescent boys alone on the street. You should do the same. His start today against KC should tell us what we need to know.

Ike Davis - Ike Daddy has a whopping 4.5 points on the week! Things are looking up for this notoriously slow starting slugger. At some point we know he’s going to turn it on and we are forced to suffer until that time comes. Maybe I would have been better off drafting Goldschmidt…..FML!!!

Manny Machado - Only Michael Jackson matches Macho Manny’s wood handling ability. Opposing pitcher are more helpless than Wade Robson when facing this young minotaur. I don’t use the term minotaur blindly, for the man who has a painting of himself as a minotaur in his mansion is none other than Alex Rodriguez, and Machado is the new A-rod. See what I did there? He only has put up 7.5 so far this week but let’s not hold it against him. He will help carry many of you to glory and for that we praise him.

Dan Haren - He’s showing life guys. I like what he’s been doing lately and feel like he could step his game back up to pre-sucking levels.

Roy Halladay - Thanks for the memories. I’ve never once owned you so I don’t know what it felt like, but I know deep in my heart, that the people who drafted you in the 3rd round this year will still remember the good times…………. just like Nicole Simpson’s parents still look fondly upon all the fun they had with O.J., you know, before he…

Evan Gattis - It’s been fun. Welcome to dumpsville broseph.

Heath Bell - I hope you can do better in your 10 team leagues because this butt plug of a closer is going to get rocked. And I mean soon.

Jeremy Guthrie - The buildup for Guthrie Vs. Freddy Garcia was tremendous, almost like Tyson/Holyfield. All jokes aside Guthrie is 5-0 with a 2.28 era. WHAT? That can’t be real, right? Ok, I just checked 5 different websites and it’s really happening. Just a year ago, owning Guthrie would have been akin to a major film studio giving Christian Slater the lead role in a new blockbuster trilogy. We are talking about a 33-year-old with a career 4.2 era, who gave up long balls with the same frequency Oprah takes down twinkies. I just don’t understand it. Might as well ride him while he’s hot though. Good luck.

That is all for this week my peeps but I’m harassing Grey, and trying to get his approval for a post about points league two start pitchers every week. As per usual your questions and comments will be responded to in a timely fashion. Thank you for joining me on this fantastic journey. May your weekend be filled with countless bootyliscious beauties, and if you’re a female, may it be filled with……..D1ck?

    Thanks!

    • Tehol Beddict

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @ryan: lets scrap hernandez right off the bat. I like parker to bounce back a bit and it’s a little early to stash pineda unless u have multiple dl slots or no injuries at the moment, plus we don’t know how effective he will be. We have no clue. I am praying for his revival as I drafted him in like the 5th round of dynasty league last season. do you have add/drop limits? Id maybe stash parker for a start or 2 and see if he rebounds and if he continues to lick nuts, go ahead and stash pineda. but hernandez has no value in points leagues at this point unless u receive points for holds and if thats the case go that direction.

  3. Layzerface says:

    Speaking of Hosmer, I need your opinion. 12 team points league, we keep 12. Had Hosmer last year and kept him, thinking there had to be some sort of bounce back. He’s on my bench now in favor of David Ortiz. I’m worried about the future of my 1B position though, and I’m starting to think about dropping Hoz for Yonder Alonso before he gets scooped up by someone else. Still too soon to give up on Hoz?

    Love your articles, by the way.

    • Tehol Beddict

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Layzerface: yea man, I feel your pain. One would have hoped he bounced back in a major way this season and maybe he still will. who’s in your utility spot or do you have anyone else you can straight drop for ALonso as I am semi-high on his future. id say its a little too soon to drop hozzy but man i started him literally every single game last season with my mind telling me “today is the day he turns it around” and he never did haha. lets give him a few more days . glad u like man. Thanks!

      • Layzerface says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: line-up looks like this… C – VMart, 1B – Ortiz, 2B – Kendrick, 3B – Frazier, SS – Castro, OF – Trout, Cutch, Braun, UTL – B. Harper, J. Bruce, D. Fowler, Bench – Hosmer

        Pretty much the only guys I can drop are Fowler and Hosmer. And I don’t know what to make of either of them, tbh. Fucking hell. Hosmer makes me feel like

          @Layzerface: uhhhh, you may have the greatest outfield ever assembled my friend. do you even have room for Fowler? like does he even see the field for you coach? maybe try and trade fowler???? i think u can afford to hold hoz a little longer but if you’d rather have Alonso i can’t fault you as I would def consider it

    Need your opinion on Masterson and Timmy lincecum. I got Scott diamond, Jeff Locke, Ricky nolasco, bud Norris and Scott Feldman on waivers. Also have lucroy and gattis for the catcher slot.

    Thanks man always love the posts and advise!

      @Brendan: lets start with ur catcher slot. Ur solid there. Im hoping gattis gets going again or is able to find regular playing time and i like lucroy a lot. Masterson’s last start was encouraging so I’m still holding there and he’s been k’ing quite a few batters this year which is nice. God, Lincecum is really struggling but it’s just hard for me to dump him for scott feldman or buddy Norris, but sometimes u got to do what u got to do. maybe one more start from lincecum????? glad u like. thanks for reading

    Thanks for all the help over the years! I have Fujikawa (4$) & Matt Adams (10$) coming off the DL in my 10 team NL only keeper league. 5×5 roto (with BB instead of Runs Scored), and I need two roster spots!

    Pick two to dump: Gattis 10$, Marcell Ozuna 10$, Luke Gregorson 10$, Dillon Gee 7$, Wily Peraulta 10$, David Hernandez 1$

    It should be noted that I currently do not have a 1B… so I need to have either Gattis or Adams playing despite their part time jobs.

      @Al: id really like for saint louis to get adams in the lineup every day(wouldnt we all). but as of this moment gattis is playing more but that could be changing shortly. id probably shit can Gee or peralta as neither will be missed.

    Heath Bell: 2.65 FIP, .400 BABIP, 17% HR/FB, 20Ks to 3 BB. Why do you foresee disaster? Because of last year, a messed up year in the land of Oz, his only bad year in 6?

    I get it, it’s Heath Bell … but we waited a long time for Rodney to fail, and his resurgence was much more implausible.

    • Tehol Beddict

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Jacks: you could be right. but even before last season he was set up for regression after losing a ton of velocity. I mean hey, if you need a closer grab him for sure. I’m just saying if you’re in 10 team league I’m guessing you have 2 decent ones already, but if injury or desperate, got to grab bell. Im just warning people of the rocking im sure will take place at some point

      • Jacks says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: ah, his avg FB velocity last year was exactly the same as previous good years. He’s down 1 mph so far this year, but looking at game charts he’s starting to escalate the velo.

        I admit to being nervous about meltdowns, but realize it’s a fallacy to assume it’s inevitable because of last year’s performance. Right now the stats support a turnaround, and I’m not convinced he’s deep in a decline phase.

          Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Jacks: i just listen to the experts who a few years ago were saying that even though he was still producing in petco that those days were more than likely coming to an end. i haven’t done the research on him for the past few seasons. but like i said he is decent option on solid team id rather just have someone else in 10 team league and i dont trust him

    OK, asked Grey a little bit ago, but I like to gather opinions:

    In my sadistic H2H points league (Wins=+7, Loses=-7) , I’ve got Hosmer (hey, a HR finally!) taking up space @1B. we have limited add/drops so I’ve been considering making a trade. What do you think of Choo and M.Moore for E5 and Lester? With the scoring W/L are really all that matter for pitchers (crappy, I know). Marte would move into the OF (my only bench bat so I can load up on pitching) and I would drop Hosmer (Horray!) to make room for Grienke coming off the DL eventually. Should I hold here? Hosmer is making my head inch closer and closer to the oven…

    Another option I didn’t pitch to Grey is to hold and snag Corey Hart, DL him when Grienke comes off and hope on the first of June my 1B spot is saved by the boy in the box.

    What says Tehol?

    • Tehol Beddict

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      I@MattTruss223: Im a big E5 guy but chooo choooo is freakin killin it and though moore has been worrying me as of late I still like him better than lester. hmmmm i love the rest of ur strategy though so maybe there is a way to do this. Marte is a perfect replacement for choo though so it doesnt really hurt you at all. its the moore for lester thing im having a hangup up on. i have no issue with dropping hosmer. I liked lester to have nice season before the year and think he’s gonna be good but talent wise u may be losing that trade a little unless E5 hits 45 bombs which is certainly possible, and again u have marte to step in. I say do it man

      I like ur idea of holding hart there and dling him till he’s ready. not a bad idea. not a bad idea at all.

      • MattTruss223 says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Thanks man. I’ll prolly end up grabbing Hart and DLing him then, I can come back to this trade in 2-3 weeks I suppose.

        Would you view that trade any differently knowing my pitching staff is Verlander, Grienke, Shelby Miller, Homer Bailey, and Tony Cingrani? Moore was/is basically my #3…

    I dig your articles. Funny sh!t. Questions. Early on I picked up Marte, but I already had a solid OF. I was then able to trade away A Jackson for Ortiz and Hamilton for Sandoval, separately, to solidify my IF/UT. (1) Were these good trades? Victorino was also on waivers at the time I traded Hamilton so I figured, why not? I could use a top pitcher, but nobody is biting on Bourn. (2) Should I wait for Bourns value to increase or would trading Braun or McCutch for a #1 starter be a better option? Lastly, (3) going forward is M Carpenter on Y Bettencourt a better 2B option?

    Here’s my lineup:

    C Buck, John
    1B Trumbo, Mark,
    2B Betancourt, Yuniesky
    3B Sandoval, Pablo
    SS Segura, Jean
    OF Braun, Ryan
    OF Marte, Starling
    OF McCutchen, Andrew
    UT Ortiz, David
    BN Ramirez, Hanley
    BN Victorino, Shane
    BN Bourn, Michael

      @Jason:
      1) love trading for ortiz. the other trade is nice too considering ur outfield is stacked as phuck
      2)i would give a few weeks for bourne to increase value hopefully and trade him as Cutch would be tough to give up. dealing bourne shouldnt hurt you at all.
      3) got to ride with B court right now. his play continues to amaze me.

      THanks glad u enjoy man. im catching a lot of hate this week!

    Man I cannot read this crap . Can you fire this guy please. Not remotely funny…just juvenile. I love this site except for this guys low rent attempts at being edgy or “funny”. Grey writes with wit…not so much this guy. End of rant…

      @K W: the hate is strong with this one. Maybe we have a different sense of humor??? I thought it was funny

      @K Dub the Scrub – It takes alot to hate on someone on a Friday like that. I’m assuming another lonely night with just you and the PS3? I think this guy is funny and brings his own style to razzball, thats probably why Grey hired him. What would you prefer… let me guess Eric Karabell in a speedo telling you to pick up Sean Rodriguez? FYI reading an article and commenting on it makes you a fan. Go get Tehol tatooed on your stomach peon!!

    i have a great idea. Let’s take these fat old guys who can’t play defense or run and let’s have them get off the bench for 4 abs per game. Let’s make it so manager doesn’t have to do anything but fill out a lineup card and take a snooze until its time to put in a closer. Who needs strategy in their sports?

      @ETMcgee: who wants to see an automatic out at the fhuckin plate?? Sorry to break this to u old school but they are getting rid of it. Send some hate mail to the commissiomer. Hes a big fan of mine

    I refuseee to loooose f*ck them 22’s! I’m not sure how much longer I can’t lose with Ike Davis on my team. I understand starting slow but jesus 9 rbis?! Considering I couldn’t even trade Ike for Brendan Ryan what do I do?

      @D Rich: mayne just bench him like I did. I want his head. The man looks losy out there D

    Yes, Grey is the Nostradamus of Fantasy, and I commend you for sucking up to our boss, but in your case it is not really necessary. Grey himself would be proud of a line like this one here:: “The buildup for Guthrie Vs. Freddy Garcia was tremendous, almost like Tyson/Holyfield.” I actually watched much of that game. Truthfully, you and Sky have such a Greysian way with your craft that I think that neither of you exist and Grey is writing both of your columns. And that, my friend, is the best compliment that I could give you.

    But Kazmir! Being a Mets fan, and having angst and angina simultaneously for several years after the Mets made that extraordinarily idiotic trade – not that making incredibly dumb trades is something that is unusual with my Metropolitans – Ryan for Fregosi comes to mind, still haven’t forgiven them for trading Seaver; well Kazmir stuck in the craw, and I was ecstatic when his career took a downward spiral, but somehow I have a feeling that he just might be for real.

    And yes, I have the same feelings for Hosmer that you have. He sent my hitting cats into a black hole last season.

    And thats it for today.

      Do you have acute angina? I always wonder if ladies would blush if their doctor told them they had it. And thanks for the kind words, Paulie!

    • Wallpaper Paterson says:

      @Paulie Allnuts: I was okay with the trading away of Kazmir the moment it happened. What they got in return is what annoyed me. The Kris Benson acquisition (the day before, maybe?) was a worse trade because the Mets pretended they were in playoff contention. If I remember correctly, they proceeded to lose three straight after the Benson trade. Then even they had to admit they were not in the race.

  28. BTW, check out Goldy’s Home/Away splits…

    Was offered Gonzo and Matt Moore for my Ryu, Goldy and Arrenado in my points league.. Should I accept the trade? Wins and extra base hits count more than usual. Thanks man

    • Tehol Beddict

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @DiscoD: probably not. im worried about gonzo and goldsmidt could be better than gonzo. moore has struggled mightily last two starts. this might be something to revisit in a couple weeks

      • DiscoD says:
        (link)

        Q@Tehol Beddict: I just countered with Goldy, Shelby and Arenado for his Votto and Gio. Is this a good trade?

      @jjj: venable is heating up but it seems stubbs plays daily whereas venable doesn’t so stubbs i guess

    Wutup brotha Tehol!!! I’m up by 73 points and today he has 2 pitchers going and I had 1 but I added Feldman yesterday to play today in case he gets 2 wins and catches up cause pitchers are 20 for a win + a point per inning and K. Do you think it’s a good idea to keep Feldman in or do you think it might backfire and bench him?? If a lose you get -10 but after innings n K’s it would be probly -3 to + 3.

      @Frank Lynch: sorry bud did not see this till now. i took some nightime cold medicine and bombed out till 1pm west coast time. did u leave him in or what? hoping u got the win my man

    Hey Tehol. I have a question for you for next week. I’m in a mixed H2H points league where we start only 4 SP for the week. The 3 guys I’ve got locked in are Matt Moore (2 starts), Wainwright (1 start), and Shelby (1 start). I’m really not sure what to do with the last slot out of Latos @ PHI, Haren @ LAD & @ SD, or Vargas vs. KC & CWS. Can you give me your opinion on who you’d start for my last spot or if you’d even change my three guys I have locked in. Thanks brother

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Anthony: hart to bench ur aces for a two start streamer like vargas so I’d leave your original three in there and then take the SLIGHT risk of throwing haren out there for 2 starts against a couple offensively challenged teams. could be big

  34. JVH4 says:

    Rank these pitchers in a points league for the rest of the year:

    Lee, Scherzer, Wainwright, Gio

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @JVH4: Wainwright, Scherzer, Lee, GIo. I wanted to put Scherz in number one spot, which he is capable of, but honestly he could finish third if Lee balls out but ill keep him at 2nd. gio is dead to me
