Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

Yeah, last week I told you to buy Kris Bryant.  This week it’s Jorge Soler.  Next week, it’ll probably be Jody Davis Jr.  After that, we’re all going to move to the north side of Chicago, get one of those beef sandwiches they say are Italian that don’t look like anything any Italian I know would eat, then we’ll chow down on some pizza that could double as mattress padding and we’ll say da instead of the.  Chicago’s my kind of fantasy prospect town.  The only reason why I’m talking about these Cubs prospects — well, not the only reason, but a good reason — it’s late in the year and prospects are called up on September 1st.  Specificlly talking about Cubs prospects, because I want to get in a Hot Tub Time Machine with them and go back one minute every other minute so I can stretch out my time with them.  Like a real romantic!  So, on Jorge Soler.  He’s hot butter on Oprah’s thigh with Stedman moving in.  Sexy and weirdly erotic.  Soler, Bryant and Baez are like 1A, 1B, there’s no 1C and 1D.  Soler missed a month earlier in the year with a hamstring injury, but he’s been fine for a while now.  Shoot, I’d even say F-I-N-E, fine.  He has some slight speed, 30-homer power and a .280 average.  Basically, every All-Star outfielder of the last ten years.  Unlike Bryant, Theo hasn’t said Soler won’t come up.  Soler almost definitely will.  Grabbing a guy with something to prove with this much talent, this is what H2H leagues are won with!  Or any leagues, for that matter.  Look at Baez, he’s on a 70-homer pace.  What, you don’t want 70 homers?  I’d stash Soler now.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Alex Avila – Twenty homers in a week isn’t enough for you, huh?  Oh, it is.  Okay, keep that mind space and then think about how three homers in the last eight games and twenty in the last seven aren’t that far off.  C’mon, lie to yourself a little better, you can do it!  Everyone that meets you after reading your Tinder profile thinks lying to yourself is your best trait.

Travis d’Arnaud – Catchers are a dime a dozen, and this week’s catcher dimes are these two schmohawks.

Kennys Vargas – Fun fact!  When he was born, he was given the name Kenny, but then he was so big, and just coming out of his mother’s birth canal, they added an extra Kenny.

Adam Lind – Since his return from the DL, he’s picked up right where he left off.  See, he left off with an 0-for-3 and he picked up with the same.  Lind hasn’t done a lot since he’s returned, but he could.  Could rhymes with should.  What else do you need?

Jordy Mercer – There’s guys that went to elementary school with Mercer who are still to this day saying, “Sure, he’s in the majors, but his name is still Jordy.  For that reason, I’d still pick on him.”  Seriously, dubya tee eff, what the eff in the eff hole is a Jordy?  I want to give him a Wet Willie and I don’t even know him.  Oh, and he’s been hitting.

Omar InfanteHitter-Tron likes Infante for the next week similarly to how it enjoys walking up to cars on the street and yelling into their tailpipes, “I want inside you!”

Jonathan Schoop – Shh, don’t tell anyone in 2015.  He has 11 homers and is owned in less than 1% of leagues.  That’s not a typo.  At middle infield?  Yes.  Make sense?  Well, let’s just not talk too loud.  We need middle infield sleepers for next year that seem amazing in March that we want to kill in May.

Kris Bryant – Still a must-grab in keepers and very deep leagues, but right after I wrote last week’s buy, Theo said Bryant won’t be up this year.  Phooey to that, but we still have Soler.  He will be up.  Foo’eally to that.

Norichika Aoki – He’s cemented himself back in the leadoff spot on the Royals — don’t laugh, it’s not that bad — and he’s been hitting and stealing a few bases.  Plus, Norichika is a seaweed wrapped piece of gum.  Doesn’t that sound delicious?

Carl Crawford – 2007 called and it wants its hot schmotato back.  Gon’nab’it that never gets old.  I’d slap my knee if I wasn’t suspended in an anti-aging chamber.

Michael Pineda – If you like Michael Pineda, and making love in the rain.  If you’re not into Yovani Galardo — YoGa — and drinking champagne– Oh, sorry, I didn’t hear you come in.  Let me take out my rollers.  Help yourself to Pineda if you’re in a deep league.

Jake Odorizzi – You calculate his ERA since May and then tell me why he’s still owned in less than 50% of leagues; I’m done doing the work for you.

Tsuyoshi Wada – Not entirely sure why I like him as much as I do.  His fastball averages below 90 MPH, which means his 9+ K-rate in the minors probably won’t find its way into the majors.  He does have nice control and should be less dangerous than most rookies.  I hate to compare him to Hisashi because it seems like I’m only doing it because they’re both Asian, but, well, you’re the one that’s judging my motives.  Jerkface.

Collin McHugh – Could put him in the same ball of wax as Odorizzi, only McHugh’s April wasn’t even that bad.  Actually, it was pristine — 0.59 ERA.  His July ran into some issues, but overall his numbers are terrific, that-a-way–> 9.8 K/9, 2.9 BB/9, 3.18 xFIP.  Don’t get bogged down in why you’ve never heard of him prior to this year and/or that he plays with the Astros; just grab him.

Jon Niese – He’s usually fairly safe, like his teammate Gee, but this is more of a Stream-o-Nator call than anything.  SON likes Niese almost as much as a promenade caricaturist, “There’s so much to work with!”

Mike Fiers – I just gave you my Mike Fiers fantasy.  It was written from inside the belly of a whale.

Kyle Hendricks – Kind of a carbon copy of teammate, Wada.  Pretty meh fastball, but his secondary stuff is slightly more meh (meher?  Bill Maher?).  The Stream-o-Nator likes his next start and I’d stream him.

Matt Lindstrom – Ugh, SAGNOF for saves has been the most pathetic for the last month as I can remember.  I’m streaming through relievers right now for the chance of one save because the actual closer had gone three days in a row.  I’m like Pookie for saves and I’m stashing saves in my butt while I sit at a table with a bunch of topless women.  Topless so they can’t steal saves while no one is looking.  Give me saves, man!

Jeurys Familia – Sigh.  See 1/18th of an inch above.  It’s the SAGNOF Drought of Fourteen After Twenty.

SELL

Justin Verlander – You and the ant with the rubber tree plant have high hopes.  It’s sweet, and kinda sad.  So, Verlander didn’t work out, cover your mirrors like Mesoraco is coming over to visit, sit shiva for Verlander’s arm and drop him unless you’re in an AL-Only league.

Yu Darvish – Sure, he could come back for a few starts, but an elbow issue isn’t something that screams, “Yay, I want some of that!”  I get it, your team is driving towards the finish line and you’ve nicknamed your pitching staff “Project:  Help.”  I just don’t see great things coming from Darvish this year.  Sorry, Charlie.  Hmm, maybe that’s not the best phrase to use with an Asian.

Carlos Gonzalez – Drop.  And drop Tulo and your health care provider, so you can get on the Rockies health care plan, that shizz is apparently great!

Alex Rios – I own Rios and I want to drop him just for the feeling of liberation you get right after a very satisfying burp.  Your chains of suckage have bound me too long!  Is that an 80’s song?  Sounds like it.  Rios seems to look at Hanley for a role model on indifference, then underperforms that.  “Master Hanley, when you run out on the field, do you hustle?”  “No, Alex-san, you jog.”  “Master Hanley, would you consider pulling a hamstring during that jog?”  “Yes, Alex-san, you are a fine pupil.”  Will you please at least appear to care?  That is all I ask (it’s not all I ask)!

    Grey, I just wanted to say thank you for responding to everybody’s questions. I had a question and did a quick search on the comment page for the players last name and found you’d already answered the question. It’s awesome to have such accessed to your opinion so easily. It is very valuable and I thank you!

        @Grey: Thanks! Do you think JoFer is worth keeping next year at $11? He and Goldy are holding up an active spot and I know i’m keeping Goldy. Is Jofer worth holding on to?

    Hello Grey,
    Do you think Fiers keeps a rotation spot even when Lohse and Garza return?

    I should win regular season but my post season is coming up weeks 23 & 24, and I was wondering if you think i should drop one of these DL’d players now or hold. I have 2 DL spots and 4 DL players.. Cutch anibal yu and bailey.

    If anything I would drop an injured pitcher for one of the following: Hendricks, shoemaker or hammel, or hold them for a possible postseason return. Would you consider dropping one and who?

    10 team. Standard 5×5 h2h

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Greys #1 Fan: I’d imagine Fiers gets bumped when they both return, but only if they’re effective and healthy…. No guarantee of that… You don’t need to drop anyone right this moment…

    Thoughts on Gattis? He hasn’t seemed the same since coming off the DL, and last season he crapped out towards the end as well. Is he just a Spring HOF candidate? Or is he just sucking as a result of Barves peer pressure?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Maybe he’s dealing with his injury still, hard to say… He has power if healthy, that’s not going to disappear…

    Solid ratios this week, but I play the match-up game (to my detriment at times)

    Hammels @Atl feels like a meh to me and Keuchel is stapled to the bench @Bos

    Have to roll with Stroman @CWS though…

    And to think I almost traded for Verlander last week because the price was so unbelievably low, feel like I dodged a bullet there.

    Better young OF gamble ROS? Myers or Soler?

    Hey Grey got a last minute trade offer to run by you.

    I currently have Hanley(5th rd) and Puig(Last rd) as keepers with one year left of keepability.

    One of the teams in the league just fell out of playoff contention and wants to sell before the deadline on Sunday. In return he wants my 1st rd pick, another high pick and one of the above for his non-keepers of Kershaw and Trout or Joeybats. I dont have a back up SS and was depending on hanley to come back healthy for the fantasy playoffs however I would rather not trade away Puig in the last round. He also has rollins who he could throw in so that i get a SS back.

    What do you think a fair offer would be for Kershaw and Trout? I’ve finished in 2nd place the past 3 years and really dont want to be known as the Buffalo Bills of the league so I need to make this trade happen or Kershaw and Trout will end up on one of the other contending teams.

    Would you trade Puig and a 1st for Trout and Kershaw?

    Thanks for everything!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d trade my first pick and Hanley for them

    This has definitely been the year of the DL! I thought I rocked it on a trade in early May, and here is how it worked out
    I gave:
    Bautista – had a great april for me and played well since (#23 on the player rater)
    Rizzo – had a good april for me and been a rockstar since in relation to draft position (#25 on the player rater)
    Arenado – Good April for me, pretty meh since (#191 on player rater)
    Addison Reed – Good April and still getting saves, although ratio’s have been high since (#158 on player rater)

      Fielder – Well ya know
      Austin Jackson – dropped him a few weeks later
      Viller – Sucked and got sent down
      Darvish – Awesome til July and now DL’d (#66 player rater)

      This trade was approved by “RB nation” and forturnately I am still doing well, but wow, think you are winning big time and I feel like this is the softball episode of the simpsons “Unless, of course, my nine all-stars fall victim to nine separate misfortunes and are unable to play tomorrow. But that will never happen.” Damnit man!

    Grey, I posted this in the Fiers thread.
    “Good morning Mike, Grey and everyone else. 12 Team points league with heavy scoring for pitchers (50pts per win, -15pts per loss, 2.5 pts per K, -2.5 pts per ER, -1 pts per BB). I’m nervous about starting these pitchers today against the good offenses. Which one should I start/sit?

    Kluber SON $21.6 vs Orioles Chen
    Stroman SON $10.9 at WhiteSox Noesi
    A. Wood SON $10.3 vs A’s Hammel”

    Mike’s response was that he’d start all three and if he had to choose one to sit it would be Wood. Your reply was simply “Stroman”. Did you mean that you would only start Stroman or sit him? Sit Kluber and Wood?

    Shallow 10 team h2h currently in 2nd place

    C Perez
    1B Pujols
    2B Kipnis
    3B Encarnacion
    SS Baez
    OF Jones
    OF Marte
    OF Beltran
    UTL Rizzo
    BN Segura
    BN Werth
    BN Seager

    SP Cobb, Bailey, Kluber, Kazmir, Samardzija, Liriano, Ventura
    RP Robertson, Krod, Cishek, Allen

    So…offered Braun for Samardzija. Normally this seems like a slam dunk offer, however I’m a little nervous. Braun has been pretty mehh the past month and obviously revealed last week his thumb is still bothering him.

    Normally I have a surplus of starting pitching, but I recently lost Salazar, dropped Minor, and looks like Bailey is heading to the DL.

    Lastly, is Braun that much of an upgrade over Beltran or Werth? Seems like all three are dealing with some sort of injury.

    Normally I know you would advocate streaming, but we have a budget on moves tied to real money ($3 per move), so that’s not really an option. Here are some of the better starting options available: McHugh, Hendricks, Fiers, Salazar, Anderson, Shoemaker, Elias, Chen.

    Now that Encarnacion is back, I need to drop Seager for a pitcher anyways. Might end up dropping one of Beltran/Werth/Segura as well for a starter. So what should I do? Thank you sir.

    first time playing fantasy BB and barring 3 weeks of 0-10 it looks like I should make the in the playoffs (largely thanks to the great material on this site!!).

    just wondering, once teams mathematically win their division do they tend to rest starters and let the minor leaguers and backups on the 40 man get starts?

    If you’re going for the win this season, do you ever deal players that are on clinched teams for those still chasing the wild card??

    Thanks!!

    Keeper league, which would you want:

    Brett Lawrie 2B/3B in the 26th round

    or

    A pitcher in Mat Latos that you’re not planning on keeping after the season is over.

    Does the person giving up Lawrie need to give more to gain a month and a half rental?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds fair, I’d want Latos by a slight margin

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        Thought that would be the answer. Dude I’m trying to work with so I can bolster my pitching down the stretch wants draft pick compensation and has no reason to keep Latos…um, 20 HR potential at 2B in the 26th round should tide you over fine, bro. Seriously, the valuation of kids these days…

            @Grey: For sure. But if you’re not competing for this year and won’t be keeping Latos next year…compiling youth and figuring it out later much better than holding an arm that won’t serve you any purpose. But I hear ya.

    HTH 5×5 12 Team 4 keeprs…I’m in 6th place top 4 go to playoffs, with a little over 2 weeks left I MIGHT can get into the 4th spot but it’s not a sure thing. I was offered Dee Gordon for Brett Gardner and I accepted, due in part to only having Alcantara(who’s gone stone cold) and Alcedes at SS at the time, and thinking I wouldnt keep Gardner anyway with only 4 spots. What do you think good trade or bad trade for me?

    I was offered Baez for Iwakuma after trading for Gordon, but havent pulled the trigger… My SP’s are Iwakuma, Kluber, Shields, Cobb, Kennedy, Gallardo, Ventura and Paxton. What says you on that deal?

    I’m also curious at to who your 4 keepers would be? I listed my SP’s above, my batters are currently Zunino, Freeman, Cano, Dee Gordon, Alcedes, Arenado, Frazier, Stanton, Ellsbury, Morse Wong, Castellanos, Prado, Taveras (with Springer, Pollock, and Cuddyer on the DL).

    Lastly Of those batters and with many of your recommended pick ups available in my league like Soler, Kennys, D’Arnaud, Avila, etc. any changes you’d make? It’s a one C league with 4 OF and 3 UTIL spots along with a total of 5 bench spots(3 of which are currently SP’s as I’m able to play with 4 closers( Robertson, Cishek, Melancon and Jansen.) Ok that’s it, sorry for the multitude of questions…and thanks in advance for your time.

    • Grey

        @Grey: You’re the man Grey, thanks for your time. I’m sure I’ll revisit my 4 keepers plenty of times between now and next season. I like Springer and Arenado quite a bit as well as the 4 you mentioned.

        One last thing would you hold Taveras or try to add someone actually producing stats lol? I already dropped Alcantara and there’s a chance Pollock and Cuddyer will be back soon, not sure about Springer at this point. So I guess who are my 3 most droppable players iyo?

        • Grey

    I think I asked Dan Pants this, but I’d like your opinion as well. If Josh Harrison gains 2B eligibility (4 more games) for next year, is he worth keeping at $15? Are there any red flags that he’ll regress back to anonymity next year?

    XBH instead of Runs league.

    • Grey

      He’s not worth $15 in most leagues

        @Grey: still doesn’t make real life TEX any sense in risking anything with him. think they’d be trying to lose games on purpose at this point.

          Yeah, he’s going to get shut down… They can say what they want about him…

            @Grey: Ron Washington sounds like a man worried about losing his job. Why on earth would the Rangers even want to win at this point with a legit shot at the 1st pick?

    Would you drop any of these from my roster for Smyly (starts tomorrow vs the Yanks but also for RoS)?

    Span

    Thanks for the great analysis.

    Would you keep Springer or Machado for next year? Thinking about dropping one for the stretch run, possibly for Ackley. 10 team hth 5×5… other keepers will be Stanton, Puig, Polanco, and Baez. Leaning on keeping Machado since I only have one UTIL spot… but might try to pick up Bryant.

    • Grey

    How you doin, man?

    Question about back end roster space. I got Soler fever. I’ve got 32 bucks of FAAB left, just paid 8 for Marisnick.
    However, at this point it looks like either he or Chris Taylor is the drop? Thoughts? Prob Taylor, right?

    • Phil of the Future says:
      (link)

      Realized that might be confusing the way I typed it. Meant I want to pick up Soler but wondering who to drop, Marisnick or Taylor.

    absentee opp only down 6 bases, 6 hits, he’s up 1 homer, and 5 rbi’s, even though he’s got lowrie/mccutchen in active slots. gotta hope for upton to get 2 days off here till end of week. my team has gone into 5 day toilet, hitting 232 with 14 rbi’s this late into week, 3 homers. or maybe david wright/donaldson/napoli could fall into bottomless pit for a few days (ozzie smith style)

      Would stink to lose to an absentee…

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: yes it would, esp since it looks like i’ll have 2 slots to fill up in this decent buy in money league for next year. not to mention the other 6 to get us back to the 16 we had last year. speaking of which, if anybody wants to play in a 16 team H2H league few hundred buy in next year on yahoo with total bases/hits/losses as extra categories in addition to 5X5 email goodfold2@yahoo.com. this league 2 years ago was an 18 teamer, but old comish was tired of tracking down money from a lot of owners, most of which were his old high school friends, that he’s barely in contact with anymore. so 8 quit in 2 years due to felling insulted when they were called the deadbeats they are, also as the buy in went up. we’ll be using leaguesafe of course.

    Late Hip Hop Line Of The Day:

    Now here’s the perfect mixture, let it bubble and foam,
    Wait three seconds then watch the microphone get blown,
    It’s the mischevious, lyrical genius on the loose,
    And I pack the deuce deuce of some act right juice,
    I’m in my own, space and time,
    The elevation of my rhymes elevates your mind,
    It’s a clear blue sky and a clear blue day,
    For a G from DPG to wear clear blue and gray,
    I come, I came, I am, I ain’t,
    The n**ga ya wants to fuck with, get peeled like paint,
    Bottoms up, n**ga, give it all ya got,
    From the bottom to the top or get shanked, get shot,
    Provocative footage, of this lyrical abuse transgression,
    From this infectious interlude, they on a loose,
    And unstoppable, Daz,
    My motherfuckin’ n**ga from back in the past…..

    Bonus Verse:

    Now here’s the kickoff, as I’m about to rip off,
    Rage is knockin lips off, travellin like a spitball, I hit y’all,
    Right between the eyes, smack dab in the middle,
    With my rhymes or my riddles, ain’t got no time to fiddle,
    Faddle, dibble, dabble,
    Gotta Rock like Fraggle,
    I’m hittin so hard I’m leavin that I’m leavin em snaggled,
    Like Leon Spinks this black cat’s got ya jinxed
    Fuck around and you’ll get chipped off like the Sphinx,
    Think, about it, better yet forget it,
    Play like En Vogue cause you’re never gonna get it,
    The style, the flavor, the flow, the so-lo-ist,
    Hit you in a second, one two mic checkin,
    That’s my lethal weapon like a chain and ball,
    I’m wreckin, shop, tech and, Glock,
    Not in my pocket, no need for cockin’,
    Gauges just flip the scripts and rippin pages, Rage is,
    The amazin, trail-blazin,
    Close shavin like Norelco you can’t let go, hell no!,
    I’m that lyrical murderer,
    Stranded on the Row with my ill type flow and uhh

      @Bunny: did you thank us for the 3.12 era he still has in the 80.66 innings as a starter on the year. (assuming you are giving us credit for that too, right), before today 2.6? it would seem appropriate. while you are doing it, can i take full credit?

            @Bunny: i being exactly as believeable for “taking credit” as you were for “thanking Razzball community” for what Stroman did to your team today. He’s been on as many of mine as i could’ve grabbed him after maybe his 2nd good start.

            • goodfold2 says:
              (link)

              @goodfold2: i do understand what you mean though, earlier in year porcello and smyly seemed to only be on my team for their awful games.

              • Bunny says:
                (link)

                @goodfold2: I drafted Porcello and held onto him early and he was fine, let go just in time.

                Anyway, I’ll probably drop Stroman for Odor… or Archer, so you can expect him to be lights out ROS.

                • goodfold2 says:

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @Jack: he’s saying don’t go with colon cleanse. recently it would appear fiers would get more K’s (probably wins too), but plays in a worse stadium and will probably have worse whip.

    How many hitters from the same team should I own in fantasy? Right now In my keeper I own Rizzo and Castro who start everyday. If I drop Josh Hamilton(or Choo or Calhoun)for Soler, I would have 3 Cubbie hitters. Now if the Cubs were the 27 Yankees I wouldn’t mind this., but they struggle to score runs. I am in good shape to make a title run this year. What to do?

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @John E. Depth: that kind of thing could be troublesome sometimes in fantasy football when say 3 or 4 of your players have to play a hard defense (or maybe a reason not to draft zac stacy, having to play SF/ARI/SEA 6 games a year), but in baseball just take the best players, esp in roto, where end of season total stats is all that matters.

      @goodfold2: 2. 20 team dynasty where i just dropped Sipp due to needing to make innings since darvish is out, with soria/darvish in active slots (no DL room), drop rymer or mercer (both bench bats right now, but mercer way better than free agent guys) for sipp (i also have qualls), or is this too early? currently have oberholtzer/cahill/hammel (really starting to hate this guy)/hahn/wily P as healthy starters. those are enough to make innings.

      Why?

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: sipp got last 4 outs of 2 run game for HOU, came in when game tied got one out, left in for what was save chance. got 4 str outs.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: most importantly, qualls wasn’t put out for save chance, even though he wasn’t tired (at least discernably)

            (link)

            @Grey: that’s what i’m wondering, i don’t think anything was specifically wrong. he def isn’t tired from usage. also did you see the chapman K streak at least 1 K per inning (over a million innings) just died

            • Grey

    same league as above, 20 team dynasty with no prices. QS and K per 9. with this staff darvish (can’t fit in DL)/cahill/wily p/hammel/oberholtzer/hahn. does hammel’s earlier season performance call for keeping him over those other two, or should i drop him to stream or own the likes of house/masterson/peavy/santiago/capuano? he’s at least lately worse than cahill/oberholtzer.

    Hey Grey, Got a few Questions.

    1. BENCH 1 –
    (28) Moss @ATL facing Teheran
    (73) Baez @NYM facing Niese (Lefty)
    (75) Rios @Home facing Shoemaker
    (204) Polanco @WAS facing Gio Gonzalez (Lefty)

    (Mainly need RBIs)

    2. Drop Rios for any of these RBI kings? Duda, LaRoche, K. Davis, Plouffe, Loney, JD Martinez, A. Hill or Infante? Hold?

    3. My Pitching Stats – Ws – 5, SVs – 3, Ks – 41, ERA – 2.38, WHIP – 1.09
    His Pitching Stats – Ws – 1, SVs – 2, Ks – 19, ERA – 3.52, WHIP – 1.24

    My Rest of Week – Gio Gonzalez @Home vs. PIT, Fister @Home vs. PIT and Arrieta @NYM.
    Opponent Rest of Week – Y. Gallardo @LAD

    My Closers – Rosenthal, Papelbon, Rondon and Feliz
    His Closers – Kimbrel, Cishek and Veras

    What should I do to keep the lead and Win all 5 categories for the week? Start all my Pitchers and closers? Bench some starts? Obviously close in Saves.

    Thanks Grey! Hope you can give me the winning formula!

    • SMLV1 says:

    Have Stroman in a keeper, but trying to win now and already have more arms than I’ll likely end up keeping (Cueto $3, Wood $3, Ross $3, Stroman$3).

    Do you value Stroman in a keeper above Wood or Ross?

    and if not, I’m thinking about cutting him and using his spot as a streamer (e.g. Smyly tomorrow, and maybe god forbid Minor on Sunday) ratios are already ruined just need 1 QS and a few more K’s.

    what do you think? hold Stroman or bail?

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @gg: trade him, i’m sure a lot of people would jump at $3 stroman. i would.

      • gg says:
        (link)

        @goodfold2: I’ll probably hold. Just acquired Stroman via trade yesterday, and he fell apart on the mound tonight, like worst ever start of any SP on my team all season style. Also, with the innings limit coming up, and trying to win now… yadda yadda.

        Maybe i’ll just cool the jets and see about his start vs TB, seems to do pretty well at home.

        • goodfold2 says:

      (link)

      or @Flunkie: or should I hold Buxton and keep him? I have him for another 4 years after this

    • goodfold2 says:

      @Flunkie: wouldn’t you just be taking soler out of NA slot if/when he comes up anyway? You weren’t stashing Buxton for this year anyway, right? If you weren’t (since he was never coming up anyway this year), why drop him now. he’s best prospect there is.

  134. A Wesley Snipes Life says:
    (link)

    some soler questions.
    1. NL clear add over rymer when he gets called in likely next 8 hours. but drop rymer or coghlan. this team will now have a million CUBS if it’s rymer (rizzo/baez/coglan/alcantara, it used to have ruggiano too)
    2. 12 team roto, with OPS. having not unDL’ed Lind yet. 2 C/5 OF/2 IF / 2 util slots.
    zunino/gattis
    napoli/moss/lind
    altuve/wong/alcantara
    alcides/baez
    frazier/harrison
    harper/trout/dickerson/red dick/david peralta
    mccutchen (DL)/ soler (NA).
    when Soler comes up who’s drop? i’m first in league at net steals, by a decent margin.

    • A Wesley Snipes Life says:
      (link)

      @A Wesley Snipes Life: 3. 16 team espn league with OPS/total bases s extra categories. 8 keepers and right now ozuna could be one. drop ozuna/a.gordon for him? in this one i’d have to wait for call up no NA slots. a.gordon of course could also be a keeper.
      4. too shallow in 10 teamers to drop gordon/alcantara (have 2 bench bats, it’s often them) for soler? could also drop one of 10 starters, currently Gee is the worst.

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        Sure…yes

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Coghlan…peralta

      • A Wesley Snipes Life says:
        (link)

        @Grey: ok some of these answers i got, some no.
        answers were
        1. NL only drop Coglan before rymer for soler when he comes up
        2. drop peralta for soler
        3. in 16 teamer drop which ozuna/a.gordon/vargas for him. uncertain if some of those are keepers though right now. it appears the “sure” applied to this one.
        4. the “yes” referred to 10 teamers being too shallow to drop a.gordon/alcantara (alcantara is split starting 2B with harrison)

        • Grey

    Hey, what are the odds we see Springer back this season? Seems he keeps having setbacks, and Astros are out of contention so why rush him? My DL is packed: Springer, Myers, Eaton. Ryu just went DL so debating cutting someone to fit him and grab another SP…

      • Crazy old guy babbling in the corner says:
        (link)

        @A Wesley Snipes Life: but that’ll just be a 1 for 1 swap so saves me having to cut anyone when he comes back…. But Ryu leaves me down an arm which i probably need more.

    Hi Grey!

    Thought I’d give you something fun to work on this weekend! What should I do with this 14 teamer? H2h and we count 5×5 plus OBP and XBH for hitters, K/BB and Holds for pitchers.

    My team:

    C- Mesoraco
    1B- Pujols
    2B- Kinsler
    3B- Miggy
    SS- Baez
    OF- Bautista
    OF- D. Peralta
    OF- Rymer Liriano
    OF- Fowler
    UTIL- Kennys
    BN- Springer
    BN- JD Martinez
    BN- Lind
    BN- Avisail Garcia
    DL- Lawrie
    DL- Wil Myers

    SP- Arrieta
    SP- Cashner
    RP- Robertson
    RP- Street
    RP- W. Davis
    RP- A. Miller
    P- Kluber
    P- Ervin Santana
    P- Gray
    BN- Hammel
    BN- Mejia

    I am in 2d, and, as the playoffs start in about three weeks, there is no chance I will not be in the playoffs. My hope is that both Myers and Springer will be back by then.

    I think I need to drop some bats for some pitchers but can’t decide which bat(s) and which pitcher(s). I have made some trade offers but no one seems to be paying attention. The decent SP on the wire are: Kuroda, Smyly, Gee, Morton, Wada, Gibson, Vogelsong, and Hellickson. While it is a ways off, Vogelsong will probably face the Padres once or twice during the playoffs, so I he’s on the top of my list, regardless of the weather related effect on their offense…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d lose Hammel if he doesn’t have good matchups or just looks bad come playoffs, but I wouldn’t do that switch yet…. I’d lose Lind and Fowler for Vogel and Hellickson, but I’d go on matchups and since they’re so far off, I’d probably simply lose Fowler for Hellickson now…

      • royce! says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Wow, I would have not called your picking Hellickson…Thanks buddy!

          He’s been pitching really well, worth watching to see if he can continue it…

          • royce! says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Huh, so far so good for Hellickson…

            This should give you an idea of why I can never trade in this league- I offered JD Martinez for Paxton. He responded with Paxton and Gyorko for Rizzo. I have Kinsler and Miggy, so I would probably never find any use for Gyorko.

            It was the first trade offer I had received for months.

    Could I ask some advice for a keeper league I am in? At the end of the season I will have the chance to keep ten of the following guys: Bogaerts, Freddie Freedman, Harper, Billy Hamilton, Stanton, Kris Bryant, Buxton, Jorge Soler, Machado, Starling Marte, Chris Sale, Bumgarner, and Teheran. If you had to pick, which 3 of those guys would you NOT keep?

        Longo Shields Ventura Polanco, 2 fifth rounders

        We keep 11 so I am giving up four potential keepers for two. (Ventura borderline). Instead I would keep maybe Eaton and Correa to go with the below 9 in my 15 teamer:

    drop lindstrom even for short term closer spec (tired closers)? i’m thinking even if petricka F’s up again it’s putnam time (god i hope so since he didn’t suck nearly as bad). mcgee went 2 out of last 3 and allowed a lot of baserunners today, and boxberger went last 3, so i’m thinking peralta could get save tomorrow?

    GYORKO! now that i brought avisail up (and thank god for that), and had room to DL darvish or soria (went darvish, think it lasts longer), in 20 team dynasty who’s the drop. currently i’m actually cheating against league rules (supposed to have at all times 12 or 13 pitchers, not more or less). i have 11 with 5 bench bats. once comish notices i’ll have to drop one. OPS/ double plays turned (so starting vargas sucks for that)/ Outfield assists/grand slams (yeah Gyorko)/QS/RW/k per 9/ holds.
    C – zunino/norris (tried to trade norris since i won’t be keeping 2 catchers predraft next year, best offer was peavy)
    1B – Vargas/Fielder (DL)
    2B – Gyorko/Mercer/Profar (DL)
    3B – Beltre/Gyorko
    SS – Andrus/Merce/Profar (DL)
    LF – Choo/Leonys/Ozuna
    CF – Avisail/Choo/Ozuna/Leonys
    RF – Stanton/Rios/Rymer L.
    util (used to be another OF, lately it’s 2nd catcher when they both play due to Rios and others suckitude)
    SP: Hammel/Hahn (definitely keeping him when he’s shut down)/Darvish (DL)/Beckett (DL)/Wily P/Oberholtzer/Cahill/Holland (DL, how long does it take to come back from knee injury?!)
    RP: Qualls/Soria (DL)/Walden/Giles/Cotts/Melancon (7 slots)

        @Grey: could drop soria i suppose, but figured he’d have next season value (could even close somewhere again?). plus that doesn’t actually solve problem the way this league works. in theory you are supposed to have 12 or 13 active pitchers. so 3-4 bench bats, not the 5 i have. (i was fine until avisail came back today)

    Ive got a good offense and cutch will take one OF slot so Im thinking trade Puig and Ventura, going to try with puig straight up first but i dont have room for him really for Kluber or hamels.

    so- puig ventura for kluber maybe hamels.

    I would have guys like Avisail pollock beltran crawford choo ajax crisp to slot into OF4 spot. I think I need one more ace for the playoffs.

    Go for it or hold. 10 tm h2h can list team if needed

    Hey Grey, This is where I stand now….

    My Team – 5 Wins, 4 SVs, 41 Ks, 2.33 ERA, 1.07 WHIP
    His Team – 2 Wins, 4 SVs, 24 Ks, 2.88 ERA, 1.13 WHIP

    Still starting Arrieta @NYM, Fister @Home vs. PIT and all my Closers, Rosenthal, Papelbon, Rondon and Feliz?

    He only has Closers no SPs, Kimbrel, Cishek and Veras.

    Its a battle for Saves and to Keep my ERA and WHIP lower than his.

    2. I love Gios Ks but not ratios. Who can give me the high Ks with better ratios Week to Week?

    Ventura, Quintana, Duffy, H. Alvarez, W. Peralta, McHugh, deGrom, Shoemaker, Keuchel, Fiers, Vogelsong, Hutchison, Nelson, Bauer. or should I hold?

    forgot, when things are going like expected you don’t notice that it’s notable, but where are all those people (pretty much all of my friends that play fantasy were these guys) that thought preseason (and in april too), that “cobb isn’t really an “ace””. Those of us that drafted 2 out of bailey/liriano/annabelle/cobb as their best 2 pitchers this year in 14 and under leagues aren’t really looking that dumb now. bailey was pitching through neck thing (now hurt enough to sit out, after finding a way to be great with the neck thing), no idea what liriano’s problem was but it’s gone; with annabelle, yeah that one didn’t go to well, except when he was getting really lucky earlier on.

    12 team, 5×5 weekly league. I’m in contention. Fighting for top spot in W’s but could use help in all offensive cats. We start 7 pitchers.

    Was just offered Byrd for Odorizzi. Byrd would be replacing David Peralta in my OF.

    Would leave me with a pitching staff of:
    Cobb
    Kluber
    Iwakuma
    Arrieta
    A Wood
    McCarthy
    Shoemaker
    Allen
    Petricka

    Make the deal? I’m leaning towards accepting. Do you think Odorizzi is going to have an inning limit/hit a fatigue wall?

    Leaning towards making the deal but would love to hear your opinion. Thanks in advance.

    RF – Stanton/Rios/Rymer L.
    util
    SP: Hammel/Hahn (definitely keeping him when he’s shut down)/Darvish (DL)/Beckett (DL)/Wily P/Oberholtzer/Cahill/Holland (DL, how long does it take to come back from knee injury?!)
    RP: Qualls/Soria (DL)/Walden/Giles/Cotts/Melancon (7 slots)
    had the idea to trade rymer for SP or decent RP. but it’s too late , trade deadline in 3 hours.
    drop who?

    got 2 offers for ozuna or avisail
    1. wada and j.p. howell for avisail. i might be able to have howell be replaced by petricka. but i’m pretty sure he’s not closing next year, and this probably isn’t enough anyway.
    2. petricka for ozuna. this can’t be enough i would think
    3. simon and quintana for ozuna. this one (even though i don’t want simon). what if i replaced simon with reed? or is quintana for ozuna fair enough anyway? i seem to have too many OF to use (this wasn’t supposed to come up till next year, but avisail’s back early). if this trade is good, do i drop oberholtzer/cahill or simon?
    3a. what about trying this one? my soria/ozuna for reed/quintana. he has the DL room.

    • Grey

        1. quintana and simon ?

        or my rios/soria for
        2. quintana/reed?

              (link)

              @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: one last thing, for dynasty purposes (i do need steals though), the order is avisail/ozuna/rios? i’m thinking choo could certainly get back to getting steals next year if he let’s his ankle heal, and only part of leonys this year that doesn’t suck is his steals. rymer has no trade value yet. stanton isn’t moving.

                    @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: would’ve thought rios’ age and most of season performance (esp homers, and getting caught rate) would’ve adjusted him lower. i guess i undervalued the fact that ozuna has actually produced as many homers as he has in a full season. or just overvalued avisail completely.

        I haven’t seen anyone that frustrated since that time T-hole tried to write an article without a thesaurus.

    Championship week and big thanks for helping me get here?

    David Wright has a sore shoulder, will probably miss a few games. Who do I pick up as replacement 3B. For the next week, Hitter-tron likes Brock Holt ranked 35 and Mike Moustakas ranked 58. Chase Headley ranked 90 and Mark Reynolds ranked 110 are both available as a pick up as well. Who do you like best, Holt or Moustakas? Or is it Headley or Reynolds? Again, thanks so much for the help!

      @Bob: Ha! Obviously that should be a ! not a ? in the first sentence.

      I’d go with Holt…

    and with that upton homer i gave away half a category with gordon being on bench. at least i can’t say i also gave away RBI’s. would be down 1 in those anyway now.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: unless of course arenado gets at least 1 more rbi over donaldson/upton from this point forward, then i can still say that. of course maybe arenado outhomers upton and donaldson from this point forward.

      Grey says:

      Damn

    Guess I should have let J-Up know that I had my h2h match-up all sewn up, and that that sort of carry-on will just cause problems on a couple of other teams…

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @SteveNZ: either that or go back in time and tell us gordon owners to not worry about Hitter T and what it said about him today. i have upton in like 4 leagues too, so i’m not really against upton. he’s a keeper in at least 2 of those. have gordon in like 5 and benched in 3 or 4 today.

    arenado has been on base today like 7 times, but only 2 rbi’s, 1 run. 20 runs scored in these 2 games by COL. ticker tease. it is good he knows how to take a walk, but the people behind him must really suck.

    • Mello Yello says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: He’s so good though…the NL Machado…in a lot of ways

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Mello Yello: i agree completely, just didn’t realize how few counts stats that really is until you look at 1 run, 2 rbi’s and he played two full games in which 20 runs were scored.

    I’m so jealous of Cubs fans…damn you Theo, you effing genius you.

    Sooooo, I honestly haven’t read any comments yet…kinda like to just jump into it and all…so Seth Maness is not being added in greater quantities because…???…Is there really any doubt that Rosenthal’s usage is kinda creeping up on him? I streamed Hellickson today, and he was, aiigghhhtttt, but I’m going for a 3 AM add here man (it would be so awkward if someone in my league read this…be all like “yeah man, that’s just some Matchbox 20 shizz Grey and I have going, no need to look into that at all)

    And sorry for going long, but 5 song playlist of the week…

    1. Name – Goo Goo Dolls
    2. Mr. Self Destruct – NIN (how do you do backwards N’s?)
    3. Stay – Pretty Lights
    4. Originality – Thievery Corporation
    5. Tequila Sunrise – Cypress Hill

    Yeah bud!

        @Mello Yello: maness has no chance at saves, he’s a shittier ziegler. if and when rosie gets taken out of 9th he might get more holds for a while.

          o@Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Yeah, totally confused Maness with Neshek, my B…long freggin day

    Rymer or Avisail ROS

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @Flunkie: that one is gonna be avisail at least since we’ve seen him be useful before, also on much better offense in much better park in much better part of lineup.
