Grey’s in transit to Texas Wine Country for a friend’s wedding so Drunk Uncle Rudy’s has control of the ol’ roundup post.  Yup, Texas has a wine country.  If you guessed the wine is mediocre and they only sell it in magnum bottles because everything’s bigger in Texas, you’re half-right (you can buy it in barrels too).   But mediocre wine ain’t so bad.  My mother-in-law brought us Arkansas wine the other day that she and her husband picked up on a recent roadtrip.  Oofa!  I had a sip and thought, “Are they trying to make this taste like Manischewitz?”  Did they run out of grapes and substitute with purple gobstoppers?  I bet when Arkansas winery sales reps stop by Wal*Mart HQ, the wine buyer has to euphemize, “We appreciate you make wine in our state but we don’t think it meets the standards of our indiscriminate clientele.”

Since there is no big news today, I thought I’d revel in the awesomeness of Arquimedes Caminero – the Marlins middle reliever who pitched 2 scoreless innings last night in a mop-up role.  It isn’t his talent or potential that is awesome – it’s the name.  The first name adds some Greeky Latin to the Italiany Latin Giancarlo and Placido and explains the spiraling fortunes of the Marlins.  The last name sounds like a Chevy car designed especially for Staten Island with a Camaro front and an El Camino pickup truck back.  Haul trash to the local landfill by day – charm the guidettes by night.  The Caminero!  (BTW, Chevrolet’s social media agency, if you’re reading this, totally recommend the Caminero to GM and stop with that Chevy Silverado ‘Strong’ commercial on Pandora.  “Everybody knows he ain’t just tough…he’s strong.”  More like everyone knows that song doesn’t just suck….it blows!

Anyway, here are some Grey bragging about his RCL team-free notes from a short schedule Thursday…

Freddy Garcia – Some bold soul has to be happy with what the Rock was streaming (W, 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks).  Then again, he was facing Miami and their starting pitcher named Flynn may or may not have cerebral palsy and a meth-cooking dad.

Adam LaRoche – Hit his 2nd HR in 3 days against the Mets and now hitting .344 in his past 10 games…to get his season AVG up to .240.  Damn right I was streaming that Jockstuffer today against Lurch Harang.  I’ll be eating LaRoche for another week as the Nats go home to face PHI and ATL.

Hanley Ramirez – Left the game early with hamstring tightness.  He’s had a DTD next to his name for so long that he should just go by Hanley Ramirez, DTD.  It might get him some play among the dumber Jewish girls in LA who think “A baseball player and a doctor – you could do worse!”

Brett Gardner – Could be out for the rest of the season with a strained oblique.  I strained my oblique trying to think of another obliquatory joke.

Edwin Encarnacion – A HR by your 1B is sweet.  A HR by a 1B you got off waivers because an owner in your league dropped him on the rumor he’s done for the year is double-E sweet.

Tanner Roark – Solid stream start (W, 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks) vs the Mets that bumps his record to 6-0 (first 4 wins in relief).  Not bad given he was 6-17 (?!?!) last year in AAA – more like Tanner Tattoo’d than Roark…am I right <Jon Stewart annoying voice to acknowledge not-so-funny joke>.

Jose Reyes – 4-for-4 with a HR (#10) and 2 doubles to lift his season AVG to .301.  He will now be sitting out the rest of the year to preserve the .300+ AVG but will hopefully stick around to pinch-run so he can add to the disappointing 14 SB total.

Nick Swisher – 2-for-6 with a HR (#18), 3 Runs, and 3 RBIs.  Now hitting .241 with 55 RBIs.  Swisher?  More like Rimmer!

Starling Marte – Still limited to pinch-running after coming off the DL 4 days ago for a finger injury.  Can’t help that he’s being kept up all night by the screaming of teammate Andrew Lambo.

David Robertson – Got a win for the 2nd straight day but this time in vulturesque fashion (1 IP, 3 ER) spoiling a win for the craptastic Hugheshuffataur that the Yanks used for the first 6 innings.  Those 3 ERs are the only thing giving me solace for dropping him a week ago in RCL after he took a week off to rest his arm.  Cuz RCL stands for Rest Comes Later, booooyyy!

Mark Reynolds – T. Boone Pickens’ favorite hitter had 4 AB and only 2 Ks.  It’s almost gravy that he hit a cannonball home run in one of those 2 AB.  Worth streaming when they start him against LHPs if you need HRs and are okay if he blows away your AVG.

Joe Kelly – Lost to the Brewers (5 IP, 8 baserunners, 3 ER, 4 Ks), marking his first loss in his last 11 starts where he’s gone 8-0 and managed a sub-3.00 ERA.  All this and his K/9 is 6 and his BB/9 is about 3.5.  Looks like someone sold his soul to the Devil or Dave Duncan.

Matt Adams – HR’d for the second straight night.  At what point does he get the official Fat Matt shirt with ‘Professional Hitter’ sewn onto the lapel?

Will Venable – Slam (#21) and legs (#18) as he tries to get back that August magic (when he was a $38 player – 20/8/15/6/.367).  He might end up with a 20/20 season hitting .270 and only have 2 months (May and August) where he put up better than replacement stats.  Somewhere, Jose Cruz Jr. is smiling.

Ryan Raburn - 3-for-3 with 1 HR, 2 R and 5 RBIs.  Ryan Raburn is such a good streaming candidate vs. LHP.  How good of a streaming candidate vs. LHP is he?  He’s so good that he ______ all over the batter’s box to let the left-handed pitchers know it’s his house.  Charles Nelson Reilly, “I did what I do around my house and that’s hang streamers.”  Crowd moans.   Richard Dawson, “I went with streams his urine”.  Crowd cheers!

    Rudy, not to go off topic but I’ve recently met a young lady that told me the Rox need stability in the bullpen. She followed that up with the fact that most pitchers have a no trade clause when it comes to Colorado.

    Do I have any business giving this young lady up?

    • @Terrence Mann: Learn from George Costanza’s mistakes. Combining sex and baseball sounds like a recipe for flying too close to the sun on wings of pastrami. Unless her name rhymes with Melissa Falono

    Sup Rudy!

    Couple questions for you today…

    1) Equally in need of HR and SB. Who sits:

    Hosmer @ Verlander (6-16 3xbh)
    Martin v. Straily (2-6 2 SB)
    Swisher @ Santiago (1-1)

    2) Would you sit any of these starters in my playoffs:

    Niese @ MIA
    Bumgarner @ LAD
    Ubaldo @ CHW
    Lester vNYY
    Buchholz vNYY
    Miller vSEA

    I know Grey has been pretty pessimistic towards Niese, but I think its worth noting that after allowing 5 runs in the first inning against CLE, he held the Indians to just one run over the next 5 innings. Im assuming his command was off in the first inning and he made a mechanical adjustment.

    Thanks, Rudy!

    • @bossmanjunior: I’m taking Hosmer there. No must sits in that group. Sitting in H2H should be reserved for awful matchups like @COL, @BOS, etc.

  3. English says:

    I’m hoping Caminero doesn’t stay up too long. You just know one of the commentators (I’m looking at you Berman) is going to start shouting Eureka after every strike.

    No one needs that shit.

    • @Sherm: Go figure!@English: Too obscure a joke for Berman. He’d go with Arquimedes ‘Spaghetti’ Caminero.

    I love that yahoo can’t get guys on the DL when they’re clearly on the DL, but then take them off of it immediately when they’re not playing yet (howie and starling)….. BS!

    The official scorer actually used the ineffectiveness clause and gave the win to Rivera.

    • KB says:
      (link)

      @VinWins: Load of crap is what that is. I really needed that W, especially after Robertson destroyed my ratios and couldn’t convert the HLD.

    • @VinWins: Ridiculous. And Rivera goes from a Save to a Win. What disrespect for the sanctity of the Vulture Win.

      • The Prince of Soul Glo says:
        (link)

        @Rudy Gamble: Not only that but it’s a killer for me in my H2H playoffs where my opponent has Rivera and gets an extra couple of points from save to win. My theory on this is that the official scorer must have made a bet that Jim Johnson would lead the AL in saves (and blown saves as well) and wasn’t going to let Mo pass him on his watch. That kind of tenacity is admirable.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @The Prince of Soul Glo: another instance of any sort of a lack of objectivity in this sport. Baseball is the to the English language as other sports are to Latin. The others have simple rules (relative to baseball) that may be interpreted in different ways at different times, but still stick their logic and definitions. When a guy pitches with a 1 run lead when he entered and preserves it in the final inning, that is the definition of a save, and the guy who last pitched as his team got the lead is the winner.

  6. Sherm says:

    You might be interested to know that the name Caminero, as exotic-sounding as it is, means “Walker” in English. There’s nothing more pedestrian than that!

  8. Ro_Bauti says:

    Am I missing something? Did E5 play today or did he just hit a HR in batting practice?

    • @Ro_Bauti: I was looking into the future if he hits a HR. Should’ve caveated better.

      • Ro_Bauti says:
        (link)

        @Rudy Gamble: Ahh i got ya. Just wanted wanted to know so I didn’t waste my top waiver on him. But it looks he’s back in the lineup today, thanks.

    Morning Rudy.. Most of the guys that are streaming today for tommorrows pitching are taken. I was eyeing Matsuzaka playing Alverez MIA, but it says agaings turner MIA on your Nator but on the Mets website it says different. Anyway The other guy I’m playing took Alverez. Should I go with Matsuzaka tomorrow?? His odds are better

    • Frank White says:
      (link)

      but has a low QS

    • Frank White says:
      (link)

      I’m in the semi finals and I’m up 106 points but he still has some good guys that coming up.. The thing is next week I only have 2 players playing twice next week and my opponents if I win will have 4-5 pitchers pitching twice. I only have 2 add players left in the week so I was wondering if you would take the chance to take a streamer that isn’t that great or pickup Locke, who plays twice next week then pick Jerome Williams for my last add player on Sunday??? It sucks to look ahead when you still have to win this week but Matsuzaki is basically the only guy I have for tomorrow so if I take chance and lose i’ll get minus 10

    • @Frank White: Matsusaka is pitching as part of a Met-Marlins double-header. It’s a chancy start but you know the rules in your league better than me. Locke is definitely a better pitcher.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        but Locke pitches next week so if I don’t take mostakes then I’ll have one less pitcher to stream this week. I was just going to take Jerome Williams on Sunday and use my other add player for a guy who pitches twice next week. do you think I should gamble that and have one less pitcher this week??? If I do then the only pitcher I can grab is mustakes fortomorrow. so I’m asking it’s he worth me grabbing him andif I do then I’ll have hardly any pitchers playing twice in the finals but I have to get there first

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        I’m sorry Rudy but this is killing me cause this move can make or break me!! Can you please answer theses questions ASAP!! Thank you Buddy!! But Locke pitches next week so if I don’t take Matsusaka then I’ll have one less pitcher to stream this week. I was just going to take Jerome Williams on Sunday and use my other add player for a guy who pitches twice next week. do you think I should gamble that and have one less pitcher this week???

          @Frank White: These are terrible pitchers that you should not stream if you don’t have to… With that said, I’d go Williams

    I’m in a dead heat for ERA, WHIP, Ks, and Wins this week. I’ve got Kershaw v SF going today, Bailey @ MIL and Moore @ MIN going tomorrow, and as of now, no one on Sunday.

    Is it suicide to grab Brett Oberholtzer v LAA for tomorrow? It doesn’t look like there’s anyone worth grabbing for Sunday…

  14. RG3 Needs a Knee says:

    Rudy,
    OBP Kepper league. I have currently been holding Rizzo at a 24 keeper spot. Would you lose him for Matt Adams? If Gardner DL’s and you don’t think I should lose Rizzo, would you replace Gardner with Adams for power or Bonerface to keep my r’s and steals edge?

    • @RG3 Needs a Knee: There’s too many details I don’t know about your league to make this call. I’d try to keep Rizzo if you’ve got him at a cheap price.

    Paxton @ STL (-8.5 SON) Cardinals wOBA of .279 over last 14 games
    Albers v TB (4.2) Meh
    Oberholtzer v LAA (3.3) Oberholtzer pitching really well but Angels are red hot lately
    Matsuzaka v MIA (6.5) Dice-K is the only guy on here with a decent K/9
    Baker @ PIT (10.1) Highest SON score but I dont trust him.

    Thanks

    Need a streamer w/ an emphasis on strike outs and a potential W (if their WHIP was good that would be a bonus, but not necessary). Pickin’s are slim:

    Pettitte @TOR (Dickey), vSF (Petit)

    With playoffs on the line and a SP blow-up could possibly end my season, I am probably using the last add of the week to stream a SP tomorrow. The options are weak, I see either:

    Oberholtzer ($3.3) vs LAA
    Torres ($11.3) vs Mia

    I could hang onto the pick for Sunday, but already have a full rotation that day.

    I would have thought Oberholtz would have been a safer pick, is Torress RP innings screwing up the SON projects? He’s 5.68 ERA as a starter and got nicely roasted in Wash earlier this week.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Fungazi: Neither are good… Torres more because vs. Marlins

    Looking for good hitters for next week 5×5 H2H. Is this the right rank?:
    Adams at COL for 4, at MIL for 3 (assume Craig won’t be back in next week though he may sit against 1 lefty)
    Arenado home Cards for 4 & Dbacks for 3 (all at home! hitting well lately but I hate thumb injuries)
    Villar home for 3 against the Reds and then at the Indians for 4 (scorching lately but is he really this good)
    Yelich away for 3 agains the Phils and 4 against the Nats (doesn’t hit LHP too well and there’s 2 very good ones on the schedule)
    Are they close?

    Also, which of these 2 catchers do you like more next week:
    Pierzynski away for 4 at the Rays and 3 at the Royals
    Gattis away for 3 against the Nats and 3 vs Cubs (has done much better than AJ last 2 weeks, but only 6 games)
    Are they close?

  27. Steve Stevenson says:

    Caminero is just too perfect for SI.

    Looking for a streamer in roto, all I really care about is the W. Kennedy @ATL (Hale making his ML debut), Niese v MIA (Hand, 1st ML start since 2012), Salazar @CWS (Santiago) or Vargas @ HOU (Keuchel)? Like Kennedy and Schnoz’s matchups but not their lineups, like Salazar’s stuff but not his leash. SON really likes Niese and the others are in the OK range. Do I just go with Vargas even though I think he kinda sucks, or fall into SON’s arms on Niese?

    The scoring is as follows: 10 pts W, 5 pts QS, -6 pts L, 2 pts IP, 2 pts K, -1 pt baserunner, -2 pts ER
    I am down to 2 moves this week and 3 for the year. He has 2 moves left as well. Money winners for 1st and 2nd place so I’m thinking using 2 this week and 1 for next week is probably best.
    Other issue worth mentioning is he’s pitching 5 good closers vs. my 3 and he’s lit it up here so far this week. (8 points save, -8 points BS for ref)

    For SP’s, I have:
    Friday
    Kershaw (SF)
    Latos (@Mil)
    McCarthy (Col)
    Kuroda (@Bos)

    Saturday
    Cole (CHN)
    Torres (Mia)

    No One

    He has:
    Friday
    Vargas (@Hou)

    Saturday
    No One

    Sunday
    Scherzer (KC)
    Price (@Min)
    M. Perez (Oak)

    Here’s what’s available:
    Friday
    Sraily (@Tex) $-3.6
    Santiago (Cle) $4.2
    Lohse (Cin) $4.4

    Saturday
    Baker (@Pit) $10.1
    Albers (TB) $4.2
    E. Rogers (Bal) $2.5

    Sunday
    Gonzalez (@Tor) $3.1
    Williams (@Hou) $6.5

    Questions:
    a) Kuroda is scary, but I have to play him given the deficit, right?
    b) Acknowledging today is a big day for me, his big Day is Sunday so a “wait and see” is going to be tough after today. Correct to use those last 2 streams?
    c) Which 2 do we go for highest points without total meltdown risk? I can drop Kluber to pick up one guy today if needed, then maybe another Saturday or Sunday.

    Are those two fellows going to pitch against this season or should I drop them?

    oh boy Strasburg forearm tightness…..

    I am really regretting trading for him in my keeper league. Would it be crazy to keep grienke over him? Grienke’s not particularly a model of health either but at this point I feel strasburg’s arm is going to fall off.

      I’d keep Strasburg

    semi-finals yahoo h2h question. We are real close in w,l,k,era,and whip, both have 4 starters remaining. Do you risk Kuroda tonight in Fenway? I don’t think he gets the w, esp with setup / closer unavailable,but the ks could be real close and needed in this outing.

      I wouldn’t start Kuroda

    Need to start either Gordon @ Scherzer, or Machado @ Buerhle today.
    Need AVG, HR, runs as priorities. Who do you start?
