Hope everyone’s well rested and had a joyous Michael Bay Day.  If you couldn’t be American yesterday, I hope at least you got drunk and ate a bunch of hot dogs.  As they say in Mississippi, Amurica, spelling’s for sissies!  The Mariners made it a bit more joyous for some of us fantasy baseballers when they demoted Dustin Ackley for Nick Franklin.  Ackley was a guy I could never fully get behind, in a non-sexual way.  He arrived in the majors with a ton of hype, but that’s more because Mariners fans lie to themselves more than anything Ackley showed.  So, what does the Mustache King, Purveyor of Smart Stuff Who Should Be Able To Come Up With A Better Word Than Stuff If He Were That Smart think about Franklin?  Brucely, I’m a bit meh, but I’d pick him up in all leagues and have.  Franklin looks similar to Ackley.  He has power and speed, but not in a huge way, which will be further suppressed by Safeco.  Safeco:  Where a hitter’s upside goes to die.  Franklin’s best year in the minors was in A-Ball in 2010.  To put that into a relatable comparison, you were your town’s best T-ball hitter, how well did you do in high school?  You flunked out of high school?  Point made.  This year, he had 4 homers and 7 steals in Triple-A, and I’d put it at about a 25% chance that his end of the season numbers look the same for the Mariners.  If you can’t find someone that can get you 4 homers and 7 steals from now until October, you’re not trying very hard.  There is a chance for upside and he is only 22 years old, so I’d take the gamble and grab him.  Best case scenario, 15 homers, 15 steals.  Worst case scenario, he shows up at the nightclub you like to take your lady to, challenges you to a dance battle, beats you, screaming “You got served!” and your lady leaves with him.  Most likely scenario, he hits 8 homers, steals 12 bases and bats .250, so watch how you spend your FAAB Benjamins on Franklin.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

David Price – Played catch yesterday.  He didn’t play catch from 60 feet and six inches with a catcher in a game, so there’s really no news.  He’s about three weeks away still.  Since he cost me Machado in a trade, I’ll be watching him closely and will be giving mani-pedis and back massages to my Price voodoo doll.

Kelly Johnson – 4-for-5, 2 runs, 6 RBIs, 2 homers and a steal for the always-popular double slam and legs.  As you can see on the Player Rater, he’s easily in the top tier of guys for 2nd base.  Granted, at 2nd base, that’s the cream of the crap.  The incredible thing is Joe Maddon actually sits Johnson a few times a week…on purpose!  Obviously, Joe’s family name was shortened at Ellis Island from Maddoning.

Jake Odorizzi – 4 IP, 6 ER vs. the Marlins as he was staked to a huge early led as Jose Fernandez (3 1/3 IP, 4 ER and 3 unearned runs) was bounced early.  So, I was watching this game with my non-alcoholic beverage of choice, Capri Sun, in one hand and red rope licorice in the other.  My Capri Sun straw wasn’t sticking through the aluminum pouch, so I stabbed the licorice into the drink and drank until I sucked in something that tasted like a grounded-up pill.  Then I woke up in the back of an El Dorado with sore genitals…. AH!!!  Roofie’d!  I hate you, Odorizzi, almost as much as I love Giancarlo.  Hopefully Jake hurt himself when I dropped him to waivers.

Matt Joyce – 2-for-4, 1 run with his 3rd steal.  Someone who loves me, and not just for my hirsute lip, would figure out how many games the Rays have won with Joyce and Johnson in the lineup vs. how many with them out of it, then mail that info to Maddon.

Manny Machado – 3-for-5, run and his 5th steal.  Now when I sing Macho Macho Machado man, I do it with a tinge of sadness in my voice.  I’m verklempt!

Matt Wieters – 2-for-3, run, RBI and two games in a row with multiple hits.  Well, la di da!

Adam Jones – 2-for-5, run, RBI and I go over him this afternoon in the podcast.  You can hardly wait.  No, you!

Jason Hammel – 8 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 8 Ks vs. the Nats.  Five worst teams for OBP at home are Marlins, White Sox, Astros, Mets and the Nats.  Being in that company is like getting invited to a party you don’t want to go to and telling the person, “Sorry, I have previous plans for this Saturday,” and they say, “Awesome, because the party is Friday.”

Starling Marte – Sat out with a headache.  He also denied his girlfriend a booty call.

Francisco Liriano – 5 IP, 4 ER, 10 baserunners, 3 Ks.  I can’t believe I’m about to make an excuse for him, but this start was vs. the Tigers and Liriano has still been nasty vs. NL teams.  Ugh, I feel dirty.

Andrew McCutchen – 0-for-3, 1 RBI and two steals.  To get the SAGNOF fortitude, he took a lead off the base, looked into the dugout and saw Michael McKenry throwing an empty Dixie Cup into the trash and coming up five feet short.

Travis Snider – 3-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI.  The Hitter-Tron still has a raging hard-on for Snider and electrical outlets.

Justin Verlander – 7 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 13 Ks.  This game comes after back-to-back games where he was tattooed so bad he looked like Justin Salander.

Jhonny Peralta – 4-for-4, 3 RBIs, hitting .341.  I was Skype’ing the other day with The God Of Superfluous H’s, who goes by GOSH, and he was saying that he was sick of being evenhanded with BABIP.  He wanted to give Jhonny Peralta a little extra push.  He also had nothing nice to say about Jonny Gomes.

Victor Martinez – 2-for-5, 1 run, 2 RBIs, and has raised his average twenty points since I told you to give up on him.  Give up on David Price! (Not really.)  Really!  (No, seriously, don’t.)  Yes, seriously!  (Parenthetical Aside, “You’re boring me now.”)

Shin-Soo Choo – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 10th homer.  By the by, on the team I traded Choo and Machado away, my offense is still kicking hoo-ah like it’s drunk on Flavor of Love.  If only I could get some damn pitching to work.

Mike Leake – 7 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks.  I secretly like Leake, and am horrible at keeping a secret.  The Stream-o-Nator sees his next start vs. the Pirates nearly identical to this start vs. the Indians.  In most leagues, I’d give Leake a whizz, er, whirl.

Joe Mauer – 1-for-3, 3 runs and his 4th homer as he hits .339.   I understand the Twins are a small market team with fiduciary concerns, but how long do we have to look at the Jamey Carroll, Brian Dozier, Pedro Florimon’s of the world in their lineup.  Can they merge with the Padres?  Astros?  The Tigers bench hitters?

Pedro Florimon – 2-for-4, 1 RBI.  Florimon is also the name of an anime character with a tulip head that shoots sunflower seeds out of its eyes.  Pedro Florimon is good for speed, which is also what the creators of anime are on.

Ryan Braun – Sat with a thumb injury.  He said, “I’ve basically been swinging with one hand for two weeks.”  Jim Abbott pfft’d.

Kyle Lohse – Should start on Thursday after a successful BP session.  That’s not a BS session, which would include Sean Casey.

Carlos Gomez – 2-for-3 and his 2nd 2-homer game in the last three games.  Here’s me on Saturday, “Well, I don’t write a roundup on Saturday so I avoided having to write mea culpas for telling people to sell Gomez.”  Yesterday, I punched Saturday Grey in the mouth for passing the buck to me.  None of Gomez’s peripherals make much sense.  His K-rate is up, but so is his average…by .60 points off his career.  His line drives are up, which is good, but his ground balls are up (not literally) and his fly balls are down (literally).  He should not be this good, but that broken record is getting harder to listen to.

Jean Segura – 2-for-4 with his 8th homer.  More like Jean-luc Goddamn I Love This Guy.

Jon Niese – 7 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 4 Ks.  I hate to do the flip-hop, the flippie – the flippie to the flip-hop on Niese, but I’d roll with him again in all leagues, especially since he gets the MIA Marlins the next two starts.

Phil Hughes – 7 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks in Metco.  If you can’t pitch that well against the Mets at home or Marlins, you shouldn’t be in the majors.  I’m farting in your general direction, Odorizzi!

Dan Straily – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 1 K.  I don’t want to kick a gift streamer in the mouth, but only one K?  Who are you, Joe Saunders?  I don’t want Joe Saunders.  If I wanted Joe Saunders, I would’ve picked up Joe Saunders then walked into traffic.

Josh Donaldson – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer.  Him and Carlos Gomez are attempting to undermine me.  That’s not cool, guys.  Not cool at all.

Jose Altuve – 2-for-5, 1 run and 2 steals.  After the game, Altuve told a story about what Memorial Day meant for him.   His family would go to amusement parks and he’d watch as they rode the roller coasters, unable to go on them due to height requirements.  That was last year.

Jhoulys Chacin – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 9 Ks, lowering his ERA to 3.90.  Yes, a couple of Rockies pitchers have had fantasy value this year.  No, I wouldn’t pick them up in mixed leagues.

Kyuji Fujikawa – Back to the DL with a forearm strain.  You know what you get when you put your forearm to your forehead?  A look of eightache.  Take it, Highlights, it’s yours!

Jeff Samardzija – 9 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 8 Ks, 2.85 ERA.  If you didn’t draft him after reading this site all preseason, that’s on you.

Alfonso Soriano – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 6th steal.  An Alf hasn’t looked this good since he bailed his TV dad out of jail for smoking crack.

Jose Quintana – 6 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks.  Due to the amount of baserunners vs. runs, I can tell he was unlucky.  So, if your league has an Appearances category, but it means how they looked vs. how they performed, you got a good start.

Aaron Harang – 9 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks. A performance like that from The Harangutan gets Jane Goodall’s nipples hard.

Michael Morse – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 11th homer.  Dot dot dot dash dot dot.

Kendrys Morales – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs, hitting near .500 in the last week.  Recently, Morales has been a flaming beast, which was a phrase I picked up from Behind the Candelabra.

Josh Beckett – Shut down after feeling tingling in his fingers.  I always thought that was good luck at the craps table.  Hmm.

Dee Gordon – Optioned down to Triple-A.  There, he’ll try to hit someone’s weight other than his own.

Zack Greinke – 4 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 2 Ks.  This is blatantly obvious, but he’s not right.  They probably rushed him back from The Quentin Incident.  I’m actually glad he goes to Coors next time out, so I don’t even have to debate about benching him.  There’s one circumstance when I’d be glad to be sonavabenched.

Adrian Gonzalez – 4-for-4, 4 runs, 1 RBI, average is up to .337.  Too bad the schmohawk in front of him went 0-for-5 with 4 Ks or we would’ve got some ribbie action.

C.J. Wilson – 4 2/3 IP, 6 ER.  Unlike Greinke, Wilson’s probably right, but I wouldn’t own him.

Domonic Brown – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer.  You know, Brown looks good on me.  It brings out my smile.

Tyler Skaggs – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 9 Ks.  Skaggs showed the Rangers who’s Boz.  Also, Big Biscuit did a great breakdown of his Tyler Skaggs fantasy.

Martin Perez – 5 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 11 baserunners, 2 Ks.  “Siri, wake me when Perez even shows a glimmer of his top prospect potential.”  “Okay, Grey, texting entire phone book, ‘Get slimmer to show your potential.’”

Yu Darvish – 7 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 14 Ks.  When I tell my cougar that I love her, I’m spelling you wrong.

Bryce Harper – Sat with bursitis.  Would’ve made more sense if it were Brycesitis.

Colby Rasmus – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, and 2nd this week.  I dropped him for Franklin before the games started so I didn’t even get a bomb voyage.

Edwin Encarnacion – 2-for-5, 5 RBIs and 14th homer.  Right now, I wouldn’t want to be a pitcher going against the Jays and I’d grab any Jays hitter scraps off waivers to try and get in on the fun.  *cough* Lind *cough*

Brett Lawrie – Left yesterday’s game with an ankle sprain.  He’s day-to-day.  Or as they say in Jamaica, day-o-to-day-o.

Evan Gattis – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer.  Elsewhere, Sal Perez didn’t play because his Maw-Maw passed.  Who’s gonna console me that I passed on Gattis?

Mike Moustakas – Out with quad tightness.  If that’s short for especially terrible at hitting, then I agree.

David Lough – 4-for-5, 1 run.  Got the start today with Cain resting.  Has been seeing time with Frenchy giving the French a bad name…Oh, wait.  Lough could be a hot schmotato with a side of SAGNOF, but he looks as promising as everyone else that comes up in the Royals system that they don’t trade away.

James Shields – 6 IP, 6 ER, 14 baserunners, 4 Ks.  Just a rough start for a guy that has been solid– Oh, who am I kidding?  I don’t own him anywhere so…Schadenfreude!

Yadier Molina – 2-for-2, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 3rd homer.  The Molina Family Memorial Day cookout would’ve been complete if James Shields were filled with hot dogs.

Daniel Descalso – 3-for-3, 2 runs.  Is hitting .400 in the last week.  Where’s the but, Grey?  Give us the but!  Well, Random Italicized Voice, he doesn’t play every day.  There’s the but!

Ubaldo Jimenez – 7 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks vs. the Reds.  Solid effort in what seems like a solid bounce back season for him, right?  Guess his ERA.  Go ahead, I’ll wait.  *twiddles thumbs, twirls keyboard like it’s a pencil, dances to Justin Bieber song, gets caught dancing to Bieber and pretends instead to be dancing away from a cockroach*  His ERA is 5.57!  Belch.

Vinnie Pestano – Francona said he’d go with Pestano over Joe Smith and Cody Allen, two guys that are doing much better than Pestano.  Francona said, “You know, we always called each other good fellas.  Like you said to, uh, somebody, ‘You’re gonna like Pestano.  He’s all right.  He’s a good fella.  He’s one of us.”

Brett Myers – Has crankiness in his elbow.  Myers concluded it was that time of the month for his elbow then smacked it.

    Nice Breathless reference… BTW, when you Google “Jean S”, Jean Segura now shows up ahead of Jean Seberg in its autocomplete suggestions. Success at last!

    As the film buff that you are, have you been following Cannes? The winning movie has apparently some very steamy girl-on-girl action scene in it… *aaah Mullholland Drive…*

    As for picking up Lind, it might be a bit too late, as the Jays are leaving tomorrow on an NL road trip, so he’s probably only going to pinch hit.

    Any advice on what to do with Gattis?? I streamed him after Perez was sent to the bereavement list, but is Atlanta ever going to give him consistent playing time? I mean, yeah they gave $75 million to BJ Upton, but they can’t keep playing him when he’s this terrible, right?? Gotta keep Gattis in that lineup somehow…

    Hey Handsome, I just want to let you know that if your Cougar ever wants to treat you to a three-some I’m your girl! That’s assuming you haven’t regressed to the mean much from your picture.

    Anyways, I have a baseball question. What are your thoughts on Grandal? I start Sal Perez and we only start one catcher. I wouldn’t drop Sal but I’m thinking of dropping someone else to have Grandal as my back-up with hopes he becomes a stud. What kind of impact do you think he makes this year? Top 10 the rest of the way? Thanks darling

    In 12-tm w/ OPS+HLD, give Matt Carpenter & Valverde for Kyle Seager & Sabathia? Hitter swap is pretty much a wash for me. Could use the saves and C.C. is not helping make this as much of a no-brainer as it should be. Thx.

        @Tio: This is a Holds league so those are owned along with most “next in line” guys. Happened to have Pestano (and Jansen) in addition to Chapman, Frieri and Valverde. Does make it more manageable to deal Valverde with Perez out. Thanks.

    I was waiting for Adam Eaton to provide some SB’s. any thoughts on when he will return? Should I hold or drop him for: Revere, Venable, Span or Pierre?

    Also my catcher is Sal Perez. Should I hang on or pick up Gattis and drop either Perez, Gyorko, or Eaton? My other 2B options besides Gyorko are Profar and Carpenter.

    Looking to cement Saves in my 16 team 5×5 h2h keep 12 league:

    I’d like to deal my Greinke for his Mo Rivera/BJ Upton

    would you make that deal? I have an OF of Rios, Jones, Cespedes, McLouth and wouldn’t need to start BJ/could wait for him to turn it around and for McLouth to turn back into a pumpkin.

    My rotation: Felix, Lee, (Greinke) Anibal, Lynn, McAllister, Gausman, Colon, (Beachy stashed and Webster/Gibson on the farm)

    My current closers are Mujica, Betancourt, Perkins, w/ Peralta and Joe Smith as speculation guys.

    This smurf went on a well deserved 3 day weekend getaway only to come back and instantly get back into a smurfing mood when I saw the 3-day team performance.

    Yesterday I had 9 hits 1 HR and 2 SBs on the bench from Soriano, Snider, and Lawrie. A couple of my “starters” didn’t even play. And Lawrie got hurt. Serenity now! Fantasy baseball is truly an everyday gig.

    I had to drop Cingrani awhile ago, so I have some hatred of Leake. But I’ve been watching him and he looks great. I’m going to stream him, but is he a keeper? I have a feeling someone will snag him if I drop him after his second start this week. I have the same feeling for De la Rosa, but like Leake over him. Your thoughts?

    • Tio says:
      (link)

      @Shawn of the mostly living:

      Leake >> De La Rosa.

      He has the pedigree, plays for a good team. Is this the year he has figured it all out? I am skeptical, but that is no reason to ride his hot streak for the short term at minimum.

    • chillmodious says:
      (link)

      @Shawn of the mostly living: Depending on your league size, those guys are all streamers. I hear you on Leake, but don’t drink the kool-aid and go all streamboat on him. I happened to throw Leake yesterday, then dropped him for De La Rosa (who I’ll be throwing today) because of the matchup. I’ll definitely be losing De La Rosa after today for another streamer, and it’s entirely possible Leake will be available for his next start. If not, eh, no big deal. Plenty of other fish in that stream. Just remember one thing about Rockie pitchers outside of NL-only leagues–you can’t throw them at home, and on the road it becomes a matchup play.

    Who knew that freakin’ shortstop was going to be one of the deepest positions in baseball this year! In a 13 team keeper league I can’t get even a single team to take even a passing whiff at Starlin Castro in trade talks. Segura, Crawford, Peralta, and now Gregorious…every team in my league has a shortstop they are comfortable/happy with. In trade talks for a better bat or a nice arm Castro doesn’t even get interest as a throw-in in a 2 for 1.

      @Eric Riptide:

      Niese is worth an add if someone dropped him. I put him in the category with Yovani G. They were viewed as “Aces” in predraft rankings but just aren’t that good. They can both be serviceable, but likely not at the level you paid for them if you drafted either.

    I still say it hits 75 before the year is out… I’m keeping the count so it is almost a certainty.

    Hey, just thunk!!! Rudi and the mob in the Razzball #’s Department might be able to run up some numbers on this…

    Some work on a probability distribution that could be applied to marketing, demand and distribution…

    I really, think this is a good opportunity for Rudi and the lads to put those adding machines to some real money making work for a change… And also, while their at it, take a look at taking “Improbability Theory” out for a spin too… It might be the right tool for the job here…

    Grey…

    I’m trying to plan ahead for Giancarlo’s (hopefully soon) return to the lineup. In his stead, I’ve been using Michael Morse and Brett Gardner as my 5th OF / bench bat fill-in. Since I have a pretty stacked team with those two at the bottom of my roster, I’d likely need to drop one to make room for Giancarlo when the time comes. So, in order to avoid dropping one outright, I’m trying to package the two in a trade that would ideally land me a single, “better” outfielder. IF (and that’s an Israel Ifeyani sized IF) I can get my league mate to give up his Cespedes for my Morse + Gardner, is that a move worth making? If not, could you offer up a couple OF targets to go after with my Morse+Gardner?

    Thank you!

    • Tio says:
      (link)

      @scott:

      Unfortunately, Gallardo has been so bad you will be lucky to get 50 cents on the dollar. You may need to keep him and hope he pitches better. I have owned Yovani this year and in the past. I have decided that you can’t watch him pitch and that you have to take the body of work at the end of the year. He has better days ahead. IMO – his biggest problem right now is putting hitters away.

      Also, he got injured in a slide during the game but stayed in. No idea if this had a negative impact on his performance.

      Maybe he needs to hit 4-5 tequila shots the night before… that was his best start of the year.

      • Wudaben says:
        (link)

        @Tio:

        I unloaded Gallardo at the beginning of the season when I saw how far his velocity had fallen but even then there weren’t a whole lot of takers. Now his value in the mind of other league members seems to be non-existent!

    • Evil Grey says:
      (link)

      @scott: Gallardo was never good, so you’re not giving up on anything. Heyward, however, I would hold. But if you the right deal comes along, go for it.

      @The Jabronis: It’s a fair trade. Veto’s are generally reserved for collusion-type trades, not lopsided trades or trades you feel makes a good team better. That said, if you have veto power, you can use it however you please.

      @kR Express:

      1. Lowrie to me is proven… good OBP. The A’s are scoring some runs and he hits in the middle of the lineup. I added Franklin as well but am worried that Wedgie will bat him 9th and will rotate him with Truinfel & Brendan Ryan.

      2. Aaron Hill is a great stash…unless his arm examination comes back with a longer than expected delay.

    I dropped Gregorius and added Franklin. I did get his triple and homer off Darvish last night.

    Am I crazy? I only need a guy for a week or 2 until Kinsler & Hanley come back. Also have Lowrie and Prado to play at MI.

    Yawnstipating question: Xavier Paul, Lombardozzi or Ankiel in NL only league?

  95. Hey Grey -

    What’s your patience level with Dayan? Thought he was going to keep bashing but he’s been pretty sucky. I see you have him ranked above some other options I’ve been considering.

    Also what’s with all the Hardy hate? I’m into him. He dongs and gets other good counting stats for a 5×5 league, especially in that lineup. I know he’s vanilla and all but he produces, every year.

    • Evil Grey says:
      (link)

      @Sixto Lescano: Dayan’s streaky.

      I’m a Hardy fan as well. In that lineup…put him down for 25/80. He hit clean-up the other day too. I’ll take my chances.

    That’s not the only thing you could pick up behind the candelabra…

    So ineed a bench bat for this upcoming week and thinking abou one of the following:

    Berkman at home vs Arizona and KC
    Joyce @MIA and @ CLE vs all righties
    Or
    take the Creeper route and pick up Martin

    Hittertron has Berkman ranked the highest of available bats in my league so leaning towards him. Although i like the appeal of the possible steals Martin could provide. But Joyce is slated against all righties…Damn you hitter pages!!!! They’re awesome.

    Grey – clear things up here!

    Grey, I really appreciate all the advice you take the time to give. Makes me at ease on some of these decisions.

    Yovani Gallardo was dropped in our league and we have an auction type pick up system for free agents 3 times a week. How much should I spend on Yovani? I have $159 left for the year and to give you a perspective, Wacha went for $22 today. Do I go for $33 or even higher at $54 (Gausmann’s price last week)? Is Gallardo worth it?

    • FillyP says:
      (link)

      @FillyP:

      P.S. 2 more Q’s:

      1) Is Parra worth owning over Willingham, given Eaton is unlikely to return any time soon?

      2) Would you consider moving Jennings for pitching in a keeper league? He’s been kind of underwhelming, but I don’t want to let him go for nothing. Maybe target an SP2? The rest of my OF is Upton, Jones, Gordon, Craig and Willingham.

      • FillyP says:

    Grey – I want to say that I appreciate that you take the time to read and comment on everyone’s questions. That is one of the features that makes Razball my favorite fantasy site.

    My second favorite reason is that you take shots at Berry, Pianowski, etc. Speaking of which, Pianowski posted a proposed title of Wacha, Wacha, no want on twitter several hours after you. “The Guru” , Razzball columnist, stepped to your defense letting him know he was 8 hours late to the party. Maybe if he wasn’t up until 2 am eating flaming cheetos and deciding if he should endorse Matt Harvey in his column, he could have gotten it on sooner.

        @Jay:

        Well, at least Grey makes truly bold and uncoventional predictions then lives up to their accuracy or short coming. Other sites do not have any accountability because then people would realize their “experts” are nothing better than any schmohawk.

        There is a site fantasy experts that does grade rankings… you might be surprised with the statistics.

    1) Piling on the catcher/Grandal questions. I’m ready to drop Buck in my OBP league. I’m 1.5 standard deviations above 2nd place in HR, but looking to make up ground in OBP and maybe R. I know you like Lucroy better overall, but what about for OBP? Grandal’s .394 from last year looks mighty fine. Castro also available. Who would you pick up?

    2) In a 10-tm H2H limited moves league (15 left ROS) that counts SV and HLD, I’m middle of the pack in both carrying Wilhelmsen, Holland, League and Jansen. Thinking of dropping Maholm (my SP6, only good at home lately) for a RP and going with a 5-man rotation. Hold, or grab Valverde, D. Hernandez, Clippard, McGee or Scheppers?

    would you trade Shelby for Fowler?…..Sal Perez is killing me these days and is testing my yogi patience….obviously one of us is gonna have to kick him to the curb so he catches fire *whistles softly, not-so subtly repositions balls, brushes dirt off shoulder* …you drop’em yet?

      HA! You drop him! I’d take Fowler…

    Damn, I was so close to cracking the top 10 overall in RCL this week. Not that I’m going to complain about 12th.

    And here begins my long, slow decline.

    Is Puljos done, or on his way to the DL? Might be able to buy him on the cheap for Latos and Berkman. I badly need average the rest of the way. (as in not lower than .280, .290.) Bounce back candidate perhaps?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d take Pujols for Latos/Berk

    • John Miceli says:

      or maybe it would be Latos/bruce or Latos/Cruz for Puljos

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Berkman is worse than those other bats

        • John Miceli says:

          Still take Puljos if i have to give up Latos/Bruce or Latos/Cruz?

    drop DLR or Colon for Leake?

      Leake

      • supra says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Ok, so using simple logic, you like Leake over Colon, and you’d be willing to drop De La Rosa for Leake.

        So… Leake > DLR > Colon for all the kids following at home. Thanks Grey.

    Kemp – 13 out of his last 21 at-bats! If I offer Rios for Kemp would the other owner be insulted or should I be worried about being a bad deal for me.

    Just wanna say I’ve been following this site since March and like to give you guys all the credit in the world… its nice to see flavor with the numbers. I’ve LoL’d a few times while gaining excellent fantasy advice. Keep up the good work… and what can I get for Aramis Rameriz right now, nobody respects this guy???

      Thanks! I think A-Ram’s a tough sell because he’s sitting so much… You’re gonna have to sell him very low or juggle him in and out of your lineup with another 3rd baseman…

    Dynasty league: I trade Rendon and Homer Bailey but I get Chris Sale. Pull the trigger? I’m just afraid that Rendon turns into a really good one… 16 teams, h2h, points

  144. Wilsonian says:

    Franklin or Ike for a bench bat in a 16 teamer?

    Give Trumbo for Ryan Zimmerman? 12T H2h w/ 4OF. I would still have Heyward, Marte, De Aza, Cain, Crisp. Current 3B are Frazier and Lawrie.

    for rest of week should we sit mcallister tonight, and kendrick at home against BOS (does have a good start mon, so keep him) in a couple of days? 16 team h2h. I dropped Porcello for this streamer
    Stults vs SEA.
    Are any of these later in week any good
    1.Nuno vs METS mess (Nuno’s been alright, and this offense is horrible)
    2.Kluber vs Cobb (his 43-7 k to bb and more than k per inning makes me want to simply keep him over these other options)
    3.Blanton vs HOU (this guy is seriously blowing stream o nator)

  148. AA says:

    Arencibia, Yan Gomes, or Lucroy ROS

    Grey, need some fast advice. Donaldson and Pence were just dropped in my league. I have the number one waiver claim and wonder if I should use it. I don’t know why this is a difficult decision, but I was hoping to get some input.

    10 team mixed league. Second place.
    1b- fielder
    2b- kipnis
    3b- wright
    SS- castro
    C– mccann
    Of- Cruz, Jennings, parra, (hart, Stanton).
    Utl- goldy

    Thanks!

    I don’t know why you are so surprised about CarGo(m). In 415 ABs/137 games last year, he was on a 30 HR/75 RBI/50+ SB pace. This year, whether you look at ABs or games, he’s on a … wait for it … 30+ HR/75+ RBI/30+ SB pace. He was one of the few keepers I got right, so I’m happy being 9th in my league and wrong about the rest of my team. Oh, wait ….

    Last week I asked who you preferred in a 14 team H2H league ROS, K Johnson or Infante. You said Johnson and for that I thank you.

    hey Gray,

    Yep, I drafted Rutledge in my 12 team keeper. Is he droppable now? Because of that @#$$#@$ manager of the Rockies I’am now stuck with Kozma.
    Reyes is on my IR. Instead of Kozma I can pick up Punto, but please don’t let it come this far. That said, I can trade weeks and Parra for Prado. I know you hate him, but what to do? Pedroia and Bonifacio are my other infielders. Neil Walker and Daniel Murphy are on waivers.

    Or should I try to get another ss for just Parra or for Reyes (I read what you wrote last week)

    Thanks Grey,
    Bas, your international reader from the Netherlands

    Question for you, we have a minor system in my keeper league where you can stash guys with one year or less of service: I currently have Tavaras, Zunino, Arenado, Hultzen and Archie Bradley. However Im contemplating dropping Hultzen for Wacha and Zunino for Nick Franklin. What is your opinion/advise on those 2 moves?

    Do we hold onto Rutledge, or is his triumphant return in question?
