Bay Area sports teams may want to throw out the mother dough.  It’s tainted.   Bartolo Colon was suspended for 50 days after being caught with elevated levels of testosterone.  This much testosterone hasn’t been found in one man since they pumped Rod Stewart’s stomach in the late-70’s.  Sorry, Snopes, it’s a fact.  I see a lot of people on the interwebs saying steroids and Bartolo’s body shape don’t add up.  It says right on the side of the steroids bottle — take these and don’t exercise and you will get Meat Loaf breasts.  (I’m paraphrasing.)  Like Melky, Bartolo Colon started a fake website to try and cover his tracks.  The Go Daddy Website Starter Kit said open a new Safari window so Bartolo donned his Tommy Bahama pith helmet and then read their policies and stopped, deciding he couldn’t go without Spam.  Up until now, Colon claimed the remarkable turnaround of his career was because of his fat and bone marrow stem cell surgery, but it turns out doing steroids and eating a lot of fatty bone marrow while watching Sleeper Cell on DVD isn’t a surgery.  Unfortunately, we won’t have Bartolo to kick around anymore, but, for old time’s sake, feel free to punt him.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Daniel Straily – With the blowing out of the Colon, Tyson Ross was recalled to take his spot for tomorrow, but that’s a spot start and Straily isn’t eligible to return from the minors yet (needs ten days in the minors).  Straily will probably be recalled to take his rotation spot next week.  Grab him immediately.  That wasn’t fast enough!

Tommy Milone – 8 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 5 Ks.  You know what’s a good cure for a tiring pitcher?  A nap?  No, Random Italicized Voice.  The Twins.  Your testicles?  No, Random Italicized Voice!

Coco Crisp – 3-for-3, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and the slam & legs.  That’s a hearty breakfast, Coco Crisp.

Ryan Braun – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 34th homer.  When a guy is so good (Miggy, Braun, Votto when healthy), you don’t even need to talk about him.  Braun’s so good he doesn’t even need steroids! (Or he’s so good he’s figured out undetectable steroids!)

David DeJesus – 1-for-3 with his 4th homer in the last week.  Does it help if I say I picked him up in a league?  Does that make it worse?  Okay, now my feelings are hurt.

Tyler Skaggs – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners (5 BBs), 4 Ks  He didn’t throw most of those walks until later in the game when he was tiring (or when Trevor Bauer snuck out there).  This could be a one and done situation, but the Diamondbacks aren’t saying yet.  If you have room, I’d hold him for a few days until things shake out.  In one league, I dropped him for Straily.

Aaron Hill – 3-for-6, 2 runs, 3 RBIs with a homer in the 1st game and a steal in the 2nd game of the doubleheader for the Ernie Banks slam & legs.   Now has 4 homers and 3 steals in the last 5 games.  That’s a good season for Daniel Murphy!

Wade Miley – 8 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, lowering his ERA to 2.80.  Someone is going to show up at their 2013 draft completely unprepared and own themselves some Wade Miley.

Justin Upton – His MRI came back clean, but the doctor then kicked him in the shins, saying, “That’s because I drafted you.”

Ivan Nova – Felt pain in his shoulder and is headed for tests.  When in doubt, answer C for everything.

Michael Saunders – Hit his 4th homer in the last four games.  When I mention Michael Saunders or any Saunders for that matter  — Hey Joe, nice guitar riff — more than once in a week, you should probably look to grab him for a couple of days.

Emilio Bonifacio – And back to the DL with a knee sprain.  He could be out for three weeks.  If no one is in the room when you drop Bonifacio to waivers, will anyone hear it?  I don’t know; let’s see.

Everth Cabrera – 1-for-3 with 2 steals.  This is gonna sound crazy.  Like I’ve officially lost my mind crazy.  Like I’ve done nothing but read a TV Guide interview with Ms. Piggy for the last 20 years and because of that I think I’m Kermit and that Matt Roush is trying to steal my girl crazy.  But the Padres are actually hitting lately.  Maybin, Venable, EverCab…  Even Quentin.

Andrew Werner – 6 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners (4 BBs), 2 Ks.  He wasn’t drafted and he just kept at it in the Frontier League, where the women drink brown liquor and the men shoot guns to get the piano player to play a song.  Werner doesn’t have overwhelming stuff.  He survives on command and stick-to-it-iveness.  He’s a milk man, who has everything because of hard work, and by everything, I mean milk.  I’d ignore him in most mixed leagues, but in NL-Only leagues it’s worth a shot because of the Petco factor.

Tom Layne – Got the save yesterday for the Padres.  Hmm, did Dale Thayer change his name to something more lisper friendly?   I think Layne got the save because A) They refuse to give Gregerson any saves. B) Thayer has struggled and pitched the last two days.  C) There’s no C.

James McDonald – 5 IP, 4 ER, 10 baserunners, 2 Ks as he ran into the offensive juggernaut, Padres.  Okay, still sounds weird.

Kris Medlen – 7 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 7 Ks, now has 5 wins and a 1.86 ERA.  Not sure if I’ve mentioned him before *checking notes*  Actually, I’ve mentioned him every day for the last 45 days.  On day 27, I mentioned him twice.  If you haven’t been able to read the site because you’re busy campaigning for President and lunching with George Clooney and Kathryn Bigelow to get the facts straight for a movie about you, grab Medlen between debriefing sessions.

Ross Detwiler – 5 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks.  Not a terrible, soul-crushing start, but he hasn’t looked sharp in three weeks and he might be tiring.  He doesn’t have a bad next start in Crayola Canyon, but in some leagues I’d move on now.

Jay Bruce – 2-for-4 with a solo homer, his 26th.  You could say he’s sorta da boss so get lost.  That’s for Ludwyck.

Chris Sale – 7 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 13 Ks vs. the Yankees.  Member the other day I said Rudy and I were in first in one league and we stood to win $6,000?  Rudy says it’s more like $8,000.  Oh, and we have Sale on that team and Jeter, the one guy who homered off of Sale yesterday.  Aw, sookie.  I don’t want this to come off as hubris — Me?  Never! — but some of you must have this feeling in some of your leagues.  We had a great start from Sale, but we already have the max points for ERA, WHIP and Ks.  Can’t Sale get some runs and steals?  Please.

Domonic Brown – 2-for-3 with his 1st homer.  Not of his career; it only feels that way.  He now has a modest four game hitting streak with seven hits.  It could be the start of something.  Or not.  We’ll see.

Moises Sierra – 2-for-4 with two doubles.  Getting to 2nd base twice in one evening is cool…If you’re in high school!  Where’s my homers and RBIs and offensive accoutrements?

Adrian Beltre – 3-for-5, 5 RBIs with 3 homers.  Two off of Tommy Hunter and one off of Kevin Gregg.  Peg boys hadn’t been used that successfully since the British Royal Navy.

David Murphy – 3-for-3, 2 runs, 1 RBI and gets Diamond, Deduno, Duensing and De Vries over the next four days in Arlington.  If the Rangers don’t score 50 runs over the next four days, my name isn’t Grey Meadowlark Albright.

Jon Jay – 2-for-4 with a steal.  Now 8 for his last 18, which is close to .500.  Thanks, remedial math!

Matt Harvey – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks.  My kingdom for a whole staff of pitchers with 105 and above on the Stream-o-Nator.

Wilin Rosario – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs with his 20th homer.  You know what kind of season he’s having, right?  A Napoli season as managed by The Sciosciapath.

Tyler Colvin – 2-for-4 with his 3rd steal in 2 days.  The first two were off Christall Young, so I ignored them, because that giraffe couldn’t pick off Billy Butler caught taking a twenty step lead, but now Colvin’s hitting .400 in the last week with a homer in there.  Tyler, OFWGKTA.

Albert Pujols – 2-for-2 before he left the game with a tight calf.  Mo.  That’s what a tight calf sounds like.  I know shizz like that.  You’re welcome.  Pujols will undergo an MRI today, but he’s El Hombre and you need a dozen Clydesdales to pull him off the field for an extended period of time, and he left those horses in St. Louis.

Anibal Sanchez – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks.  Must’ve felt that his fantasy ownership had hit a nadir so he threw out a quality start.  That’s not playing fair, Anibal.  Some would say it’s dirty, Sanchez.

Johan Santana – As hinted at here after inferring shizz from other sites, Johan is done for 2012.  “What if we have Johan greeting fans AND making lattes?”  That’s Wilpon at his local Starbucks seeing if he can recoup some more of that Madoff money.

John Axford – The Brewers said Axford convincingly pleaded his case to be the closer, and they agreed, reinstating him.  At least that’s what I read from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, but they might’ve lifted a plot line from The Closer.  Yesterday, he recorded his 2nd save in as many games.  Making Axford the closer doesn’t make him a reliable closer, but SAGNOF is the same in over 117 languages with one major exception, German.  There it’s ACHTUNGNOF!

Randy Wolf – Released by the Brewers into the wild.  Anyone who’s not Team Jacob should be careful going out after dark.

    @Grey, I’m waiting on Tulo for the playoffs in a 10-team NL H2H. I’d like to pick up E Cabrera as a hedge. Do you like him better than T Greene? Or should I drop Dom Brown, J Mayberry, T Snider or EYJr instead?

    • radiohead says:

      @grey, fyi I’ve clinched a bye so playoffs don’t start until 9/10 – so I want upside at this point in case Tulo has a setback. Also thinking I should hold on to EYJr as reports suggest he’ll be back.

      @Chillmodious, I’m starting him, similar situation.

      • Chillmodious says:

        @Steve Stevenson, I just dropped Thayer (my 4th closer) to stream Cobb. I’ll put the 112 in Cobb’s pipe and smoke it. Or something like that.

    • L-Boogie says:
      (link)

      @Chillmodious, This is where the SON scares the daylights out of me. Thought it was a no-brainer and started Peavy vs Seattle this week over Cobb. Then I see Cobb’s 112 vs Peavy’s 102 and I’m already imagining Cobb’s perfect game.

      • Steve Stevenson says:

        @L-Boogie, I’m also looking longingly at Karstens’ 113 home start Saturday.

    I’ve been in first the whole year until today. I have relatively easy pts to gain in HR, RBI, and AVG…can get a pt or 2 in saves

    I’ve been offered Posey (4, 4, 4, 4), Allen Craig (22, 19, 16, 13), Street (5, 5, 5, 5) and a 9th rd pick for Harper (4, 4, 4, 4) and a 25th rd pick. The numbers in brackets is the round a player can be kept for the next 4 years.

  26. Ciao Grey — What do you think about Rauch going forward? Do you think he gets the save chances when the Mets manage to win a game? FrankFrank has been a complete mess. Is Rauch a better choice than, say, Thayer? Or is the Mets bullpen just one to stay away from?

    Another for ya Grey, but pretty straightforward. All signs are pointing to Joey Bats returning tomorrow. Accordingly, I need to make room on this roster–but want to do it before he comes off the DL so I can stash Chooch in his DL spot. Is Krispie the drop from this lineup (I’m not adverse to losing a pitcher, but would prefer to keep it clean by dropping a bat):

    C – Avila
    1B – Youk
    2B – Espinosa
    3B – Moustakas
    SS – Jimmy Rollins
    MI – Kipnis
    CI – Rizzo
    OF – McCutchen
    OF – Bruuuuuce
    OF – Howie Kendrick
    OF – Desmond Jennings
    OF – Coco Crisp
    Util – Manny Machado
    Util – Krispie

    Dunno’ if you saw/read/heard, but there’s a new Challenge coming on 9/19:

    “Wes Bergmann can’t wait to face-off against his former Austin roommates Lacey Buehler and the now divorced Danny Jamieson and Melinda Stolp.

    Sarah Rice, Chet Cannon, Devyn Sims, and J.D. Ordonez will be competing from Brooklyn along side Ryan Knight (aka “Knight”), Jemmye Carroll, McKenzie Coburn, and Preston Roberson-Charles from New Orleans.

    MTV is combining both seasons of Vegas with Trishelle Cannatella (isn’t she like forty by now?), Alton Williams, former gay porn star Dustin Zito, and Nany Gonzalez. From San Diego, Zach Nichols, Ashley Kelsey, Sam McGinn, and Frank Sweeney will be competing. Joining them from Cancun will be Jasmine Reynaud, Jonna Mannion, Derek Chavez, and C.J. Koegel.

    Finally, rounding out the competitors will be Trey Weatherholtz, Laura Waller, Marie Roda, and Robb Schreiber from the St. Thomas season.”

      Nice! Hadn’t heard about it yet… So it’s seasons vs. seasons? So that eliminates a lot of people and adds a bunch of people I don’t care about, right? What happened to Kenny and Evan?

            Capuano or Darvish.

            Either one would be just a streamer on my team so I just need matchup potential over ROS stats.

        The old HBO series Hardcore TV did a great bit called this ” This Old Whorehouse”, where the Japanese businessman was featured at the end. Did you ever see that show?

                @Grey, We don’t have it as a channel in its own right, but there is a channel on our pay TV platform that features a lot of HBO content, and your free-to-air channels of course have the opportunity to purchase HBO content like anyone else, but generally get priced out of the action.

                Though some HBO stuff (like Entourage) pops up on free-to-air every now and then.

            @Grey, I loved First and Ten and Dream On. I found the complete first and ten series at Walmart for $5, we got a bunch of beer and watched some of it.

            You can you tube hardcore TV, The episode I referenced, was a take on Bob Villa’s this old house, but in a whore house. So the Bob Villa character goes outside and describes how they are LOWERING the windows to accommodate the Japanese Businessmen. There was some pretty funny stuff on that show, not all, but some good stuff.

                @Grey, I think it did, but the alcohol and weed might have helped. But if would have told me when i was a kid I would of got the entire series for $5 on some shiny reflective discs then i would of told you you are nuts. I know what grey’s getting for Christmas this year.

                  Yeah, loved me some Benben. You could always count on at least 5 seconds of boobies in every episode, like it was a prerequisite. I just googled Benben to see what he’s been(been) up to, and he’s married to Stowe. Who knew? (Who cares maybe.)

                    @Grey, yes, dream on was skinamax before we had skinamax. My buddy and I drop the occasional Benben and Dream On reference from time to time. I saw the Stowe thing a while ago, same reaction, who knew?. I always see Judith on TV these days. Looks almost the same. That was such a great show, like Dear John, you a fan of some Hirsch?

                      @Grey, In all seriousness, it’s how I ended up here, his passing was inevitable and that was my first year in fantasy baseball. He died on opening day 2006 and from that day on I was all in on this. I had no job at the time, needed something to keep me busy and just went balls deep into fantasy. My buddy who got me into this called me every day and talked baseball with me. From there I became the most hated guy in my league because of my awesomeness. Now I have found a community as nutso about this shiz that I am.

      1. Aoki, Span, Lind — changes if you really need power with Lind going to first… 2. Straily, Estrada, Volquez… Volquez just at home goes first… No problema…

    Holy shit, Bruce. Two on and nobody out against Hamels doesn’t come along very often. Do something with it!

    @Grey

    With Darvish and Fister both skipping a start this week, I need a streamer almost every day. For tomorrow, I’m torn between Parker and Villanueva. SON has Parker at a 111 and Villanueva at a 94 but I can’t help but disagree. Parker faced TB a few starts ago and was mediocre and has been pretty bad lately up until his last start. Villanueva has been good the past few starts and Baltimore has been averaging 3.5 runs a game the past week. Should I go with the SON or my GUT? 10 team mixed redraft. Which would you roll with?

    Thanks!

        @Prezii, It’s a kind of amazing video. Then I read the “translation” in The Atlantic… Great stuff; a subtle indictment of modern South Korean socio-economic shizz.

    What’s the latest on Posey and do you think I need to grab a second C for this weekend? If so, my options are:

    Perez, Salty, Jaso or Lucroy

    (I’d probably lose Aybar from my bench.)

    Should I make a move or does Posey come back soon?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’m guessing Posey will play tomorrow…

  69. Jon says:
    (link)

    SON is making me think I should start Fiers and sit Minor this weekend. What say you?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I don’t trust Fiers anymore… I would start Minor though… Watch SON prove me wrong on both accounts…

  70. Zack Cozart have you seen enough of him Grey – do you think he should be keep as a keeper in a 16 team league that you can keep 10 keepers – do you see some upside – he has 14 homeruns but his runs ave and rbi’s could be a drop better – or maybe its too much to ask from a rookie

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I’ve seen him…. I don’t know who your other options are but Cozart isn’t a great keeper, Hamilton’s going to be pushing him hard for playing time next year…

      • @Grey, good point grey – should I then gamble with making the trade

    • @Mr Baseball, been offered Alcides Escobar for him – should I make the trade or hold on and then make up my mind next spring

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        I’d take Alcides for him…

        • @Grey, you are head of me

      This Angels game is a cluster…

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        @Grey, The fact that my opponent owns Frieri (and I Aceves) is doing nothing for my disposition.

        • Steve says:

          @Steve, Just going to go away and cry into a pillow.

            It’s like Valentine’s trying to bury Aceves…

            • Carnac says:
              (link)

              @Grey, It’s because I commented earlier in how Bailey isn’t cose to taking the closer role.

              • Grey

                Grey says:
                (link)

                Yeah, that’s probably exactly what happened…

  73. Steve says:
    (link)

    Fuck! Aceves is still in there! It’s not often I find myself on the same side as Dustin Pedroia, but Bobby Valentine is clearly an idiot.

    • Jack Full of Hate says:

      @Steve, but that has never been disputed, didn’t he last work for E$PN, enough said!

      Oh, clearly! Is there any doubt?

      • Carnac says:

        @Grey, Again, just looking at the box score, HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN?

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Really have no idea…

  74. Steve says:

    To have a 4.09 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on a day you had Cobb and Belisle do their work takes some doing.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, not easy to pull off… Was kinda hoping Frieri blew it too for your sake, oh well…

    Dare I start Porcello tomorrow? SON doesn’t totally hate it, but it just doesn’t feel good…

    • Steve says:
      (link)

      @Steve, I already have Kendrick and Greinke going, and my opponent has 4-5 starters…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I wouldn’t go near Porcello…

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        @Grey, (Sighs) Yeah, I figured as much.

        Almost no decent stream options left for the rest of the week (sad trombone).

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I’d wait to see where you are Saturday or Sunday before risking something like Porcello…

          • Steve says:
            (link)

            @Grey, Yeah. Won’t touch Porcello. What do we know of this Hefner character from the Mets?

            He gets the Astros on Sunday…

            • Grey

              Grey says:

              I’d prefer that Hefner gamble than Rogers or Porcello…

            @Grey, Thoughts on Mark Rogers also appreciated…
