If Miggy were a Russian nesting doll, the first doll under him would be Avisail Garcia.  They look like so similar they could do Sister, Sister-type stunts.  “I don’t want to face Felix Hernandez today, you take my jersey and you face him…Then take my algebra exam.”  “Okay, sis, but you have to go out with Bobby for me.  Pinky swear!”  That’s them conspiring to use their physical similarities on unsuspecting people.  (Bee tee dubya, I’ve never seen an episode of Sister, Sister, and if I missed the general gist of the show, I apologize to all the prankster twins reading for generalizing.  But, I will say, twins should apologize for looking similar, it’s disconcerting.  The first time you see them you have to ask yourself, “Am I on peyote right now?  No, I’m not, I’m looking at a twin.”  Any the hoo!)  Comparing him to Miggy doesn’t give the whole picture of Avisail.  Well, it does, but, okay, bad choice of words.  It doesn’t tell you what kind of hitter Avisail is.  He’s not a 40-homer hitter.  At least not yet.  He has some speed, even stole 20 bases one year in the minors, when he was only 18 years old.  He also probably won’t hit for more than 25 homers all of next year.  He can hit for a solid average.  Last year, while only 21 years old for half the year (no, he doesn’t have two birthdays a year; I mean he was 21 for half the season), he hit .370 in the minors.  He reminds me more of a young Matt Holliday — think around 25 HRs, 15 SBs and .315.  Definitely someone I would be aggressive about in keepers.  As for this year, now that he’s fully recovered from his torn labrum, an injury that sounds like it would happen to a gymnast, he’s someone I’d look at in all leagues.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Rusney Castillo – Signed today with the Sawx.  Yoenis Cespedes, Castillo’s former teammate and about to be current teammate, said about Rusney, “If he’s not a five-tool player, he’s at least a four-tool player.  He’s very comparable to Yasiel Puig.  Obviously a different height and size, but very similar qualities.”  Yoenis could have a career as a scout, huh?  Seriously, who wrote that quote for him?  That quote reminds me of copying word-for-word a homework assignment from a smart kid.  Yoenis forgot to mess up the quote a little bit so it would sound like it’s from him.  Should be more like, “Rusney’s going to be great, he can run, throw and hit.  As good as Puig?  Maybe.”  Now that sounds like a quote from Yoenis.  Yoenis is walking around saying five-tool player?  Please.  Or that’s why he was traded out of Oakland, Jonah Hill was jealous of his knowledge.  Okay, that fake quote that was attributed to Yoenis aside, Rusney isn’t a Puig-type player.  He seems more like a Victorino-type.  Maybe a tad more power.  Think 15-ish homers, 35-ish steals.  The minor league season is about to end, so the Sawx could promote him just to see what he can do.  In redraft leagues, I’d take a flyer for upside, but expect nothing.  In keeper leagues, I’d pursue aggressively.  He could be a solid number two outfielder next year.

Joc Pederson – With September callups only a little over a week away, the other day Ned Colletti said Pederson and Guerrero will receive call-ups on September 1st.  I’ll chew your ear about Guerrero in a moment.  Pederson is ridunkly sexy.  Like my 87-year-old grandfather’s 60-year-old girlfriend sexy.  What?  I have a cougar problem!  Here’s what my grandfather told me, “Your wife is okay, but my girl is Angie Dickinson sexy.”  His exact words.  Pederson is two steals short of a 30/30 season while hitting .300.  In 80 years in the PCL league, no one’s gone 30/30.  Can the Dodgers make Carl Crawford glue this offseason so I can name Pederson my preseason Rookie of the Year selection?  Please.  That takes me back to Pederson’s problem this September.  He won’t have anywhere to play without a serious injury to one of their studs.  I’m using stud there still with the train of thought about making glue.  In keepers, Pederson is a must own, he can be special.  For this year, I bet he doesn’t get more than 35 at-bats.

Jorge Soler – I already gave you my Jorge Soler fantasy.  I wrote it while pleading for a sad woman to take it slow and have some patience.

Travis Snider – I’m randy for Travis!  Which makes me feel uncomfortable.  I need to be deprogrammed.

Ender Inciarte – Kevin Towers has really made the best of a bad situation in Arizona that he created for himself.  Due to this and having no chance of being within 20 games of the Wild Card, guys like David Peralta and Inciarte are playing.  Ooh, did I drop on you the double hot schmotato blurb without you even expecting it?  You’ve been double schmotato’d!  Don’t worry, you won’t be slimed.

Jon Jay – Federalisztomania!  What?  The only French rock you like is a stale baguette?

Oswaldo Arcia – Okay, you’re looking at Oswaldo, Jay, Avisail, Snider and hot schmotato behind door number *counting on fingers* 5.  Who are you grabbing?  Tough to say, all about needs.  Avisail has the most upside, Oswaldo has the most power and others have a certain Jon Jay sais quoi.

Wil Myers – The fact that he’s under 50% owned makes me think in six short months he’s going to be wildly underrated.  Sure, he wasn’t good in the time when he was healthy this year, but I don’t think we can lump him in with the Delmon Young of failed prospects.  Lump and Delmon Young do seem to fit perfectly in the same sentence.  And Klump, that would work too.

Alex Guerrero – As for Guerrero and his Phantom of the Opera mask that Miguel Olivo mouth-designed for him.  The Dodgers could work him into the middle infield and move Hanley to 3rd base or occasionally bench Gordon.  Guerrero probably still won’t see everyday at-bats, but in deep daily leagues, I bet he’ll have more value in September than Pederson.  This year in Triple-A he showed his 15-ish homer power and 5-7 steal speed.  He should also be stashed in keepers, since he should have some sort of job next year too, and I’m guessing that job won’t be as an ear model.

Mookie Betts – Here’s what I said the other day about Betts, “Jackie “I Can Walk Three Times In One Game!” Bradley Jr. was demoted and Betts was recalled to play center field.  Singing John Fogerty at karaoke paid off!  Betts absolutely dominated Triple-A, and he’s not a Quad-A player.  He’s 21 years old with plenty of time for him to develop into a 10 HRs, 30 SBs guy.  Whether that happens this year –> your guess = my guess.  I’d grab him in most leagues for speed if you need an upside gamble.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Jedd Gyorko – Bit surprised to see him under 50% owned still.  So, why can’t you pick him up?  Because he hurt you so badly and you can’t forgive him?  He didn’t fill your car with bubble bath, he was hurt.  Get over your differences and grab him.

Mike Moustakas – When you ignore the Hitter-Tron‘s giant hard-on for Rockies hitters and metal, you find it really likes Mostsuckass this week.

Kennys Vargas – There’s a 3rd grade teacher somewhere that’s mentally correcting him to Kennies.

Kendrys Morales – Sticking with the newly established weird plural theme, pick up Kendrys, cleaning.  Sorry, I’m also writing errand reminders for myself.

James Loney – He’s actually had a decent season so far xcsnuisdnc Oops, I fell asleep and my head hit the keyboard.  What were we chatting about?  Oh, Loney cdsnd8165nsdn  Again, my apologies.  Where were we?

Archie Bradley – I gave you my Archie Bradley fantasy in October of last year.  It kinda still applies and it kinda doesn’t.  I thought Bradley would be up sooner, but he had an arm injury that derailed him.  Why do I now have Ryan Adams singing Waiting to Derail in my head?  Stupid free association.  Bradley’s worth a gamble since he’ll be up in September, but in most mixed leagues, he’s just a streamer.

Vidal Nuno – Oy, Stream-o-Nator‘s really making me go out on a less-than-sturdy limb for this week.  At least I had the good sense to not suggest Danny Salazar, though by mentioning him, am I suggesting him?  Hmm… Faulty logic, you are confusing me!

Roenis Elias – Ugh, where’s the decent Stream-o-Nator picks?  Good starts should be a dime a dozen this time of year.  I wouldn’t struggle to fit a Roenis peg in a square hole, if you’re not desperate.

Kevin Quackenbush – Are you ready for the SAGNOF portion of our program?  Of course you are, what the hell else are you doing?  Pouring ice water over your head?

Pat Neshek – Matheny has vehemently denied removing Rosenthal from the closer role to the point where I think he might’ve painted himself into a corner and would be afraid of removing Trevor just so he doesn’t look like a dope.  Not to say Neshek shouldn’t see saves, but I’m less convinced he will.

Jeurys Familia – His name translates literally as:  Your pain in the ass cousin that keeps calling you asking if there’s any way you can put in a good word for him before he goes in for the job interview.  Familia should be less painful to be around, but you can’t choose where saves are going to come from.

Jonathan Broxton – Chapman says he’s fine, and he pitched yesterday with decent results, but I’d still speculate on Broxton.  Then again I’m like a crack whore right now for saves. Excuse me, a crack lady of the night.

SELL

Gregory Polanco – Players usually hit an adjustment period a few weeks after they land in the majors.  Sometimes it lasts a few weeks, sometimes it lasts a few years — see Brett Lawrie.  Will Polanco be terrific?  Like a Wheat Thins sandwich of Cheez Whiz, but right now he’s really struggling and even losing at-bats.

David Wright – Both guys this week I’m suggesting you drop in shallower leagues were in Sell columns a few weeks ago when you could still trade players.  That you didn’t trade them is fine.  I pardon you like Ralph Fiennes.  Who I don’t pardon is Wright.  Right now, he has 8 homers, 6 steals and is hitting .268.  I believe Dozier had that through the first month of the season.  On our Player Rater, Wright is currently ranked 194th overall, sandwiched between Homer Bailey and Tim Hudson.  Um, crap.  At 3rd base, Lonnie Chisenhall has been more valuable, and he had one good game (okay, I’m exaggerating, but not far off).  Wright hasn’t even had one good game and is complaining of a sore shoulder.   Did this all happen to him because he dissed cougars last year?  Yes, probably.  But it’s too late to play Monday morning quarterback. (Awkward segue alert!  It’s not too late to play in our fantasy football leagues.)  In most leagues, I’d blow off Wright like he did to those generous with their beauty and hard candies, the blue-haired bitties.

He had a song called Uncommon Valor about his family being affected by Agent Orange that is regarded as one of the best verses of the decade. Try out his older album ‘Die Rugged Man, Die’

All these guys from Jedi and Apathy and Celph and others came together to form kind of a super group called Army of the Pharohs and i think they came out with an album recently but i havent heard it yet. Def check Ruggeds other album, though admittedly I like Legends Never Die better. I’d go from Rugged to Apathy next cuz you will like him alot too.

    Great article, as always Grey.

    I have a keeper problem – in that I have too many keepers. This is a keep 6 forever (rds 1-6) H2H points league. Top pitching is very valuable in this league. Unfortunately I’m out of contention this year (had too many pitching problems at the start of the year due to drafting masterson and liriano, and lost a couple too many close games)

    Here are candidates, and the top 6 * are my choices so far.

    Trout *
    Cano *
    Jones *
    Bautista *
    Rizzo *
    Arenado *

    Teheran
    Longoria
    Gray
    Dozier
    Cargo

    1) Would you swap any of those guys?

    2) I was offered rounds 7, 8, 9 picks for Bautista by a playoff team. If that were the case I could keep another (Teheran?), and have 2 picks per round in the early/mid draft. Would you take this trade?

    3) I was trying to combine one keeper with some guys who don’t make the list (ie Jones with teheran/longo) to trade for Mccutch or Goldy. Would you do this instead of #2? Who are some other 1st rounders you’d target?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1) I’d prolly gamble on Dozier over Bautista, age and all 2) Sure, Dozier 3) Jones and whoever else you’re not keeping…Goldy works

      • Spyre says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks for the advice Grey. Gonna take that trade I think. Not a huge fan of Dozier, I’m not sure he’s improving at all as the year goes on. But … ahhhh youth

        • Spyre says:
          (link)

          @Spyre: Actually, would you keep Baez over dozier? I could probably draft both with ease in round 7.

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Sure, but if you can just draft one back it doesn’t seem to matter….

            • Spyre says:
              (link)

              @Grey: Yeah, that’s why I was leaning on keeping Teheran.

              For reference, here’s some points I got this year (so far). Elite / consistent pitching is very valuable.

              Trout has given me 423 pts.
              Bautista 433
              Jones 361
              Dozier 356
              Teheran 419 (!)
              Gray 358
              Porcello 346 (lol)

                Yeah, but I’m assuming you got Teheran, Gray and Porcello from just following my draft advice so you can get guys like them again next year

                • Spyre says:
                  (link)

                  @Grey: Haha well I followed your draft advice pretty heavily this year for the first time and I went from winning the League last year to missing the playoffs (first time in 4 years)! My pitching staff in April/May is what tanked my year. I kept Segura, & drafted Masterson/Liriano on your advice. Grabbing Teheran early was your advice too and it worked out spendidly, but Gray and Porcello I had in 2013.

                  I’m not trying to diminish your draft advice, because obviously I love the site and you’re clearly more knowledgeable about baseball than I am (plus I’m asking for advice!). But sometimes things don’t work out the way we hope, and assuming that you can select a couple aces in the mid-rounds isn’t safe when basically all the true aces are being kept in the first 6 rounds. Sometimes guaranteed points are better than taking a risk, when you have the basics of a killer team.

                  Anyway I truely do appreciate all the time & advice you’ve given me over the years, even when it doesn’t quite work out :)

    A few points of business

    Thank you for giving the lead to my pre-season crush mini-Miggy. I have been telling people to add Avisail for over a month now in my creeper.

    http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/548684_293229740777896_1287941411_n.jpg

    And how Kennys is only 33% owned leaves me to believes 67% of ESPN leagues are dead.

    when I traded Polanco and fat Adams for Papi and Hurricane Carter you called it a lateral move so in my best Jersey accent I say to you ” I got your lateral move right here” *grabs crotch*

        @Grey: Funny thing is i have either howie kendrick, matt carpenter, biilly hamilton or christian yelich on the bench in a rotation because they are the cream of my crap in the FCL. Couldn’t trade any of them for nothing.

        speaking of FCL, check out the ERA battle I’m stuck in right now.

        3.477

            @Grey: I couldn’t buy a win for months and that has killed me, I don’t expect to win against his stud club, but a 2nd place finish is a victory in that league considering where I rose up from. Still one of the top three leagues I have ever played in even if OTS went MIA. I miss that super smart SOB

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Yeah, 2nd place would be a solid turnaround… Shame your Win karma could ultimately be your downfall

              • J-FOH says:
                (link)

                @Grey: I have three words for that, OK I have a lot but Jose F**king Fernandez!

                Honestly I struggled so much early that I couldn’t stream MR like others did as i had to specualte on saves which obviously worked out for me, but left me without vulture wins, K’s and ratio help that I could of got if I streamed MR like many people did in here. On the flip side i have got like 8 wins in the last few weeks via streamers. Just two more bench spots and it’s a different ball game.

                But like i said it’s been a blast with this group, I’ve held carnac’s spot for next year as we let Jeremy fill in for him and hope OTS returns from outer mongolia or wherever he went. It’s a great group and razzball or not i expect to play with most of these guys for a long time and if anyone ever messes with de nachos i’ll send someone after tham. He’s a made man now.

                  Ha, nice… Yeah, Jo-Fer on the Marlins prolly wasn’t getting wins either, but it’s really just bad luck when it comes to Wins…

                  • J-FOH says:
                    (link)

                    @Grey: with him on the hill and how he looked and Giancarlo remembering to bring his bat to the yard this year I could count on a win every 5 to 10 games from them. If i recall the past the Marlins where a very hot team early in the season. Then with the loss of JoFer the whole team fell apart. I’m always fascinated by that because they only pitch every fifth game but to start the year the Dodgers looked like doo doo until kershaw came off the DL. This is what I like to use when I talk about the psychological element to the game

Any more and you’re smoking crack. Speaking of cracked out it’s good to get Kid A back in here and a little passion. he is not a suck you off kinda commenter. We need more of that

                  @J-FOH: that team in second sure looks great! I just dumped Wright, I had not realized how utterly terrible he has been. I need some steals, and avg, and ugh about every hitting category. Still pretty good competition. Don’t think I will be winning it but you never know. YOu really have turned it on the last few months though.

                    @mauledbypandas: One nice thing about being on the bottom is you cut ties faster with dead weight as you scratch and claw your way up. Too bad I forget this every year when i hold on to turds for too long

                      (link)

                      @J-FOH: Yeah I have been trying to do that with all my teams this year. Take an honest look at what you have and what their actual value is versus your team needs. I may have to cut ties with the Darvish as much as it hurts to do so, but another of my axioms this year has been to get value out of every roster spot at all times. Even though i did just pick up Joc

                  • J-FOH says:
                    (link)

                    @mauledbypandas: I have resisted Joc only because I know how mattingly goes about his business. If we had more bench spots then for sure but since every spot has to count towards the win or it becomes a wasted spot

                    • mauledbypandas says:
                      (link)

                      @J-FOH: Yeah I am not really sure I will still have the guy on my team by the time he actually gets the call. I just look at Polanco and would rather have a schmotato than what he is going through. Maybe Pederson will be great, but like you said, playing time + adjustments = meh

    i have choo at a $10 keeper price, which i thought was good value until this year.

    would you drop choo and carl crawford (an obvious yes on carl i assume) to pick up both avisail and rusney. i think these are an obvious yes, but it’s nice to have outside validation.

    i could also drop yan gomes or evin gattis, but i like platooning them. it’s worked well and i’ve siphoned most of their homers and avoided their bad games.

    Pederson and Soler are both deliciously available FAs.

    Avisail and (presumably soon) Castillo are on waivers.

    Myers, because it would be really “meta” if I could somehow drop him for him.

    A couple quick ones I could use your sage advice on! Who do you like better for total production tomorrow?

    1. Pick 2 of: Vargas (both games v. Verlander + v. Farmer), OZUNA (@ Col), and Brantley (v. McHugh).

    Between buxton, sano, pederson — who do you grab as a keeper for next year. Its a 3-year keeper league, so don’t want to grab someone and wait for them to play / develop for most of next year (i.e., what happened to me with Bogaerts this year). Who would you bank on as the guy to play and have fantasy impact?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Pederson

    How far apart do you think Harper and Goldschmidt are next year?

    Thinking of offering Harper and someone else for Goldy in a keeper league.

    On Sept. 1 espn should let fantasy teams expand the rosters . With all the call ups and players resting,it’s a complete pain in the azz every year filling out your roster without dumping good players. Do you agree?

      We contemplated doing that in my keeper… You can in CBS…It’s a setting…

    Hey grey , first all great posts! Second I think I need to “trim the fat” on my team

    Here’s my roster;

    C- gattis

    1b- was goldy (au crap), now it’s duda

    2b- Dee Gordon

    3b- David wright

    SS- Alexei Ramirez

    IF- Aramirez Ramirez (but I dropped him Monday after rosters locked , I still have him for this scoring week but next week it’s kennys Vargas instead of a ram of Milwaukee)

    OF- Harper

    OF- pence

    OF- Brantley

    OF- jay Bruce

    DH- Carlos Santana

    Utility – kole Calhoun

    Bench- polanco , cuddyer

    SP- Strasberg

    SP- cueto

    SP- mad bum

    RP – keuchel

    RP- Alex wood

    Bench- arrieta, zach wheeler , & tanaka on DL

    Would you drop cuddyer now that he’s ruled out of tonight & most likely Saturday? It doesn’t sound promising for cuddyer.
    If I did drop him here are options- Carl Crawford, jon jay, Matt Holliday, aoki, will Myers, george springer, Steve Pearce.

    Keep or drop David wright?
    Here are available 3b’s; aramis Ramirez, Nick castellanos , Brock holt, Chris Johnson, Trevor plouffe, solarte are available.

    Keep/drop polanco ?
    If I drop here are a combo of bats/pitchers I’m looking into;
    , asdrubal Cabrera , Vogt, Jhonny peralta, Adam Dunn, Kyle Hendricks, Michael Pineada, Gerrit cole, john lackey, Lance Lynn, Jesse Hahn, mat latos, Wei-yin Chen

    or RP’s: Dylan axlerod, Rubby de la rosa, Danny Duffy, mike fiers, Carlos carrasco, or hector santago

    Thanks grey!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Thanks! I’d go Myers over Cuddyer… Drop Wright for Aramis…. Drop Polanco for Fiers

    Hip Hop Line Of The Day:

    Geronimoo, this the jump off yo,
    We gon’ take you on an excellent adventure like we Bill and Ted and here we go,
    First of all you blow, like girls drying they nails,
    They can come in pairs, but every comparison pales,
    You all pretenders, while the build you up like Jenga i’ma make you topple,
    When you see me, turn the other way like you dodging a pothole,
    The hostile apostle revered by crooked reverends as spittin the holy gospel,
    Cursin verses more awful,
    Than the deacon stickin his deek in a boys behind behind the altar,
    Altering the planets orbit, tilt it on its axis,
    Askin how he did it? Spit a sonic boom and flew around it backwards,
    That is something special, now let me see you try n match it,
    My raps are more important than hearing ya views on abortion,
    Debating bout deporting immigrants or feeding orphans,
    Helping out the poor, gas prices or saving the ocean,
    The war on terror, gun control, fame or the fortune,
    Cuz when you born, the second you living, you starting to die,
    But we look on the bright side and call it living your life,
    It’s funny see, try not to let anything trouble me,
    Until I be in Hell with Beelzebub, drinkin boiling bubbly,
    With a couple of double D, slutty devilish women,
    But I ain’t waitin for Satan, start the sinnin’
    By the way, no faith in religion,
    I might as well just take up Atheism,
    Love him, hate him, either way it really isn’t fazing him,
    I spit it harder than the shell on a tortise,
    Or corpses going through rigor mortis, shooot,
    I’m blowing up like a mortar,
    And there is more ta me, than what you see, or what you’ve heard,
    I’m not a G, i’m not a nerd, i’m in between,
    So let me see, i’m just me, u-nique,
    Just like everyone else on this Earth,
    But actions speak louder than words,
    And wealth is determining worth,
    You think the shit I say is bad?
    You should hear the things I keep to myself,
    Image is everything, imaginations everything else,
    So what’s the difference betwee ignorance and apathy?
    I dont know, and I dont care, i’m just rappin b,
    Hard work has a future, laziness pays off now,
    But I gathered up the energy to write this down,
    You could eat right, dont drink, dont smoke and exercise,
    But you still gonna die, so chug a beer and fuck a diet,
    Smoke a blunt, smok a pack, sit around and fry ya brain,
    Drown ya pain, gain weight, shit is all the same,
    Like an amputee, I can do this singlehandedly,
    I dont need a click, a crew, a group or band with me,
    But my level of sarcasm is to the point where i’m not even sure if i’m kidding or not,
    But I bet it’s hitting the spot

    Why does the thought of streaming Verlander tomorrow scare me as much as hitting up a booty call that gave you the clap last time?

    On the flip side it is at Minnesota in the 2nd game of a double header. My biggest fear is Keenys Kong smashing one for each of Kates BooBs. He’ll probably go 7 and K 9 with 1 ER, which of course will be a dong to Kenny’s. I’m trying hard not to sound neurotic but I am starting to go fetal in my chair.

            ‘A Beltre continues to bat after dropped foul ball by first baseman B Butler’

            What a useless pile. Someone put Butler out of his misery already. Of course Ventura goes from 0-2 to a full count after that happened.

    finally starting to agree with the drop stroman crowd, but if it’s 14 team roto with only 7 adds left for season i’m guessing he’s just a bench right now and not a drop for one of stults/house/santiago/nelson/fausto carmona/ventura? i am 20 innings over projected total for year, but have hahn maybe completely out of action, or at least till september.

    also finally looking like polanco is the drop in my main league. 0 steals this week from andrus/harrison/alcantara and others.
    1. drop polanco for any of crawford/aoki/yelich/d.peralta (steals are important here, but also overall production). i could go steals only guy and grab dyson as well. thing that sucks about 10 teamers is you’re pretty much always benching a good player though with steals only guys.
    2. drop alcantara for gyorko (also have harrison). alcantara simply isn’t stealing or even getting on base. harrison at least gets hits/steals/counting stats even when he doesn’t homer.

    jesus koji! WTF! to the SEA team? only have koji in one league, but gross.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: in 1. arcia or travis snider are also out there, but i’m trying to be polanco like with that spot.
      2. cover the rbi spot if gyorko is the grab.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @goodfold2: and then harrison gets his third hit today, a homer.

    dem guys at rotoworld really tired today.
    “Carrasco’s WHIP has been threatening to drop below 1.00 because of outings like this, which lowered it to 1.04. He only surrendered two hits, to go with two walks.

    “Walters did what nobody else on the Indians could: Touch the immortal Brad Peacock. Peacock limited the Tribe to just two hits in an injury-shortened start, but Walters was not phased by Peacock’s 5.30 ERA or 1.58 WHIP. He homered in the fifth, a solo shot.”

    Grey,

    Coming to the end of our first two week playoff matchup and I’m in a dilemma. Its a 20 start MAX, my team is at 14/20 with my opponent at 18/20. Pitching stats are as follows:

    ME: 124 K, 8 W, 2.341 ERA, 1.105 WHIP, 10.365 K/9
    HIM: 103 K, 7 W, 3.172 ERA, 1.120 WHIP, 7.261 K/9

    Im winning the matchup 7-5, and would also advance in the event of a tie as I’m the higher seed. The only possible movement in hitting categories would be HR (13 to 11 him) and SB (11 to 8 me),

    I still have Sale and Iwakuma starting Sunday and have Cashner coming back today. He has no one starting today, but I’m assuming he’ll be firing on all cylinders tomorrow. Would you start Cashner coming off the DL or would you play it safe and rely on just Sale/Hisha my Dashi. I like Cashners matchup but he hasn’t exactly been un-hittable in his rehab starts.

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      @SMLV1: I picked up Panik at ss as a streamer. I love this name and can see how this guy will make you have a Panik attack or could be an MI Panik! (BTW the SS on my waiver wire is bare. Damn you tulo!)

      Has anyone ever heard of someone losing their league because they didn’t pitch the required innings? Are they automatically forfeited? Does 2nd place become first? Please Fantasy Overlord, put the guy in 1st in his true place! You cannot pitch relievers, have impeccable era, whip and saves without the paying the ultimate price!

      Is this where we pray to baseball gods?

          @Joe Shmoe: I know with ESPN roto leagues you drop down to 1 point in the 2 ratio categories, ERA and WHIP. So, if they were leading both categories in a 12-team league, it would be a 22-point penalty.

    Sorry another post…
    I need RBI’s in a bad way… would you:
    1. Drop Adams, K. Vargas, Donaldson or Seager for Howard? (CI)
    2. Drop Ramos or Mesoraco for Montero? (C)

    Is there anyone who is raking in rbi’s that my own monocle might be missing?
    Thank you for letting me freeload all your good advice!

      • Corey says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Harang vs CIN, Capuano vs CWS, Colon vs LAD. Streamonator doesn’t give one huge odds over the other, particularly in projecting the W. Harang seems to have the best splits vs his opponent but, as per jef, Capuano could be worth the add for the NYY win-factor…?

    With Gomes hitting the concussion DL, should I drop him for Vogt, Castro, JPA, Caleb Joseph, or Russ Martin? I’ve got a playoff spot locked up so I really only need to worry about a couple of weeks from now when playoffs start… hold or make a move?

    Ackley just went yard. Has been hitting since the break. You sure he’s the guy to drop over Reddick (who always seems to hit .250 and had upside power but always manages to hurt his wrist or something and fail to deliver)?

    Also — if Rusney Castillo is available is he the guy to grab who will contribute at start of next year over Reddick, Ackley, etc.?

    • Grey

      Okay, lose Reddick… Yeah, I’d grab Rusney

    For some odd reason I watched the Little League games today and I have to wonder why they even play them if all they wanted was the kids from inner city Chicago to play for the title anyway. I haven’t been able to do much of anything without hearing about them all week. I felt bad for those kids from Nevada who got jobbed like Sunny Grey did last year in that playoff game against the Tigers. We use to question if these kids were actually the age they say they are and now we do the same with MLB. I know Albert Pujols has to be like 42 but I better be careful so I don’t get sued for slander.

    OK-I’m stupid and could never hit a breaking ball.

    Fortunately, I picked up the guitar at that point,and thus got laid.

    Umm OK-I I just saw Harper call off Span on a fly ball.
    And I’m asking this in a rare sincere way.Doesn’t the CF make the call?

    Serious question due to my inquisitive nature.

        As a Nats fan,I’m hoping Harper will come through,but I’m getting that weird Uh Oh feeling about him.
        Oh-and JZimm rules.
        I swiped him in drafts the last 2 years,I guess I gotta find a new guy cause his price will be to high next year.

        @J-FOH:

        Those two seem to be lingering around in a few leagues this year and can’t really decide on one: both have bad slots in good lineups.I thought I’d found a solution with Mendy – but he wilted.

        At least I snagged Baez. And you did not. That makes me happy.

    dude, scooter hadn’t homered in a long time there. still hitting decent average, even though they moved him out of useful part of order.

  116. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    damn, team’s up to 11 homers again this week. 15 2 weeks ago.good call Grey to not allow us to drop a.gordon, he’s been entirely useful. only getting to beat to baez in one league (and that was completely my fault, so it hurts more) helps a lot too. above you said to grab yelich over some others dropping polanco, but recently other people have dropped span and eaton, still yelich over those. need steals/lead off type like polanco.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Is Polanco leading off every day?

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: no, but he was either 1st or 2nd back when he was useful. now the poor dude can’t even get pinch hit at bats. i also have been underperforming in steals and runs lately anyway though. when i asked yesterday span was owned and eaton i didn’t realize was getting healthy soon. obv polanco has homer upside those others (excepting yelich) don’t, but it’s rough looking at 0 steals on day 6 of a week.

    I’m gonna be truthful here and I think that’s what you should want.I started reading this sight 5 or 6 years ago.I loved reading your and Rudy’s stuff and it was different and more real and not full of self admiration .Like some ESPN writers are but getting to the point and nothing personal but after reading many different of your daily writers this summer it’s just to much.First Rudy needs to write more .He will turn into tron and go inside grid if he doesn’t write external columns more frequently We know he likes to crunch numbers but we need some of your real time wisdom once in a while.I guess the other writers would do better if they didnt try to be Grey Jr. .Be yourself guys,there is only one Grey AND HE’S THE BEST . Funny and doesn’t take himself to seriously.

    Looks like Doolittle was wincing when he came off the mound tonight. If he is out who would be the replacement? Gregerson? Cook?

    • Kid A says:
      (link)

      @Boomer19: Reports saying it was his side. Could be an oblique. Will most likely go to committee with Gregerson – Cook in that order. Grab both everywhere you can.

    • Kid A says:
      (link)

      @Boomer19: Doolittle saying he felt no pop, more of a cramp in his back – not his oblique. Medical staff ran him through diagnostics after the game and it loosened up.

      Still grab his handcuffs until an all clear comes tomorrow.

      He said he passed some tests with ease, was just a cramp… Can grab Gregerson though just in case…

I just picked Hutch up BUT THE qUEStion is.. Do I keep Hutch in my lineup or should I not chance the negative points and drop him right now for Shoemaker so I have him twice for next week??

    rap day eh…
    ” (chorus, H-I-T-L-E-R, drivin’ down the steets in the fancy car
    said H-I-T-L-E-R, thought we’d never make it but here we are)
    the name is A, and i’m back in command
    cause i’m the illest fuhrer representing Deutschland
    reich 1, reich 2, reich 3, that’s me
    the mastermind behind World War 3
    no 2, oh well, start it over
    been gone for so long, but now i’m back and now i’ma show ya’
    everybody Hitler hatin’ when they speak my name
    but it’s a new millennium and the fuhrer has changed
    and while i bet ya didn’t know is now i’m down with the Jews
    the Gypsies, Homosexuals and Retards too
    cause i stopped burning people, started burning CDS!
    stopped battlin’ countries, started battlin’ MC’S!
    just started bustin’ rhymes, finally found my groove
    now the SS on my jacket stands for super smooth
    (Chorus)
    to all the Aryans in the area that are carryin’ rhymes
    the neo-Nazi’s better watch me catch on up with the times
    whenever rappers see me coming, yo they run and they hide
    i grab the mic and commit lyrical genocide
    cause when it comes to dropping hooks, there is NONE GREATER!
    throw a finger to my public, then I grab my DICtator!
    cause I’m flexing my might, and i’m showing my strength
    i’ll get your lady o’ing, get her moaning “mein kempf”
    no longer Nazi, but i still like to party, and there’s plenty women up here with master racy bodies
    blond hair, blue eye, you know i like em’ that way
    (yo Goering you got something to say)

    driving down the street in my Panzer tank
    sitting drinking Cris with my bitch Ann Frank
    and when i step into the clubs you know i’m steppin’ with style
    i raise my left hand, party people say “HEIL!”
    i got a page from eva braun that i’ll say that i missed
    there’s a party up at Schindler’s and i’m on his A list
    cause i put my best behind ya’ll can think what you will
    no more propaganda it’s triumph of the ill
    (Chorus)

    jesus, in that 20 team league where i absolutely had to get .3 of an inning by end of day today, i had my choice of worley/masterson/williams. since STL has scored at least 4 runs in 10 str games, i went worley (plus SON didn’t hate it). williams is still out there. some other poor hump grabbed masterson. yikes.

    0-13 so far today, gonna be pretty sick if kemp/dickerson/blackman get 8 or more bases than pujols/gordon/andrus/arenado/duda when i started day up 12. also benched alcantara, who’s been good for 2 whole days in a row now.

    G honestly I knew you’d like Rugged cuz, well, he’s great but the way you’re diggin on him is the way I thought you would have, and still will like Chino’s stuff. He’s equally awesome and i’m looking forward to you going thru his collection of stuff.

    Who’s the drop in a 12-team H2H OBP – Gardner or C.Crawford? I have them both for the same reason, but it seems like Crawford is the one getting the job done, and with Gardner now apparently tweaking an ankle, I’m not so sure he should be on my team.

    Would like to drop one for the Creeper of the Week, Walters!

      Crawford, I’d go for Walters if I needed power at CI

    I have an embarrasment of riches at pitching this upcoming week. 5×5 weekly league.

    Shoemaker vs Miami (SON 15.8) and vs Oak (5.4)
    A Wood @ Mets (13.6) and vs Miami (17.6)
    Cobb @ O’s (11.6) and vs Bos (17.5)
    Kluber @ Cubs (16.2)
    Teheran @ Mets (14.3)
    Arrieta @ Cincy (15.1)
    Iwakuma vs Nats (18.1)
    Fiers @ SF (12.7)

    Have to sit one. Need wins. Leaning towards Fiers. Although that Iwakuma number seems high to me against a hot Nats team. Watcha think?

    Thanks.
