Or is it Jean a buy quoi?  Voulez-vous coucher avec moi Segura?  Mmm hmmm gotcha gotcha Segura da da?  A little help!  I’m stuck in a Moulin Rouge-inspired snow globe and I can’t get out!  For those of you that don’t speak French, but do speak fourteen-year-old text:  Jean Seg-U-R-A Buy!  Jean Segura has done a lot of bleh with a side of roasted yawnuts.  “I see you sitting there on my team and I wonder if I wouldn’t be better with Asdrubal, at least his name makes me giggle,” that’s you wearing a beret, listening to jazz.  I hear ya on Segura; he’s been a bore to own.  The good news (if you don’t own him) is he has been a bore to own, so you could acquire him for next to nothing.  Right now, he’s on pace for 8 HRs, 30 steals and a .260 average with 74 runs and 49 RBIs.  Last year, when he broke out, he had 12 steals and 44 steals and a .294 average with 74 runs and 49 RBIs.  So, he’s off on average and steals, the rest is negligible.  Well, I’d go as far as to say it’s all a negligible difference.  If he were to hit for a better average by getting maybe three extra hits a week, wouldn’t his steals go up and his counting stats?  Rhetorical!  So, is he capable of a better average?  Certainly.  Or sointly, if you’re reading this in a Curly voice.  He’s fast — no shock there — so a .300+ BABIP wouldn’t be a stretch, and right now it’s below .280.  If his luck just neutralizes, he’ll hit for a better average.  It’s not like his strikeouts have gone up — they’ve actually gone down.  It’s not he’s not making solid contact — his line drive percentage has gone up too.  He’s hitting more ground balls and they’re getting caught.  I wouldn’t trade the farm, but I’d definitely look to see if I could acquire him.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Tommy La Stella – This week will forever be known as the week that middle infielders swarmed the beaches, draped in American flags, wearing Jack Spade camo shorts, smelling of Gucci Guilty.  “We come to steal your women, drink from your coconuts, and by ‘coconuts’ we mean your heads, and protect your middle ground.”

Omar Infante – Hispanic Baby Omar is hitting over .400 in the last week, and, if you’re just killing time with your middle infielder, I suggest seeing what HBO’s got to offer.  Except that documentary where they interview a serial killer.  I did not need to see that!

Scooter Gennett – Has been benched vs. lefties, which is stoopid, but until someone says to Roenicke, “Whoa-nicke, you Ron Nogood-nicke, you Ron Po-in-the-brain-nicke?  Why aren’t you playing Scooter every day, Ron You-so-thick-nicke?  Ron You-don’t-know-a-lick-nicke?  Okay, you got me there, so I’m I-got-a-rhyming-dictionary-for-Christmas-but-you-are-a-dick-nicke.”

Jordy Mercer – Fun fact!  His name is short for Jordache.  Member that old Jordache commercial?  Mercer, Mercer me.

Rougned Odor – Am I the only one that wants to write his name Roughned?  Like he’s in a gang with Teddy Roosevelt and the Roughned Riders.  The only picture I can find of Teddy Roosevelt has him doing the “I’m a Little Teapot” dance.  Something sorely missing from today’s politicians is more teapot.

Brandon Crawford – On our Player Rater, Crawford has been more valuable than Bogaerts, Segura (ouch), Zobrist (dah), EverCab (oy), Hardy (har har).

Eugenio Suarez – Be interesting to one day do a psychological experiment on why some players shoot up ownership while others who have been more valuable don’t.  I’m sure Harvard or Berkeley has time to do this experiment.  I bring this up now because Suarez, while he has been okay since his call-up, hasn’t been better than some other guys on this list, but his ownership did shoot up.  I’m guessing it’s the unknown factor.  I bet Teddy Roosevelt would’ve been all over Suarez.

Josh Rutledge – I have no idea if Walt Weiss is going to play him, but he’s in Coors and the Hitter-Tron loves him like it loves a greasy screwdriver.

Chris Owings – I’m listening to KONGOS’s Come With Me Now as I write this and all I keep hearing is “I’m gonna take you Chris Ownings.  Whoa, come with me now!”  That song has got me delirious like the first time I heard AWOLNATION’s Sail and listened to it for five days straight until I never wanted to hear it again.  What’s with band’s that stylize their name in all caps?  So damn catchy.  I’m gonna start going by GREYALBRIGHT.  Caps locks is where it’s at, yo!

Robinson Chirinos – On my Mark Buehrle-led AL-Only team that is doing well — yes, I know how ridiculous that sounds — Chirinos has been a nice addition, replacing Wieters.  He has six homers in only 42 games played.  More of an AL-Only or two-catcher league play for now.

Stephen Vogt – Has hit .333 since his call-up and he has catcher eligibility, but he’s not playing catcher so there’s room for him on the A’s while Reddick is hurt.  Is it me or does it seem like the A’s have 14 hitters in their lineup every day because of their platoons?

Ronald Belisario – It’s a testament to the power of SAGNOF that I’m saying to pick up Belisario, because he’s looked like garbage left in Britney Spears’s basement fridge that she hasn’t used since 2009.

Neil Ramirez – Rondon might be the closer, but then again, he might not.  The Cubs might not have another save opportunity, then again– Well, you get the picture.

Joe Smith – I just went over Oy Frieri this morning.  If it’s funky, you’ll find it.

Mark MelanconJason Grilli?  More like batter up!  Grilli’s cold, which oddly enough makes him, well, done.  Hurdle said Melancon is the guy to own for saves, so flip the switch and get your SAGNOF on.

Kevin Gausman – I don’t know if Showalter will let Gausman stay in the rotation.  Obviously he should.

Henderson Alvarez – I’m trying not to jinx myself here, but I grabbed Alvarez because of the Stream-o-Nator.  Gah, I totally just jinxed myself.  Thanks, Blog Gods!

Jake Odorizzi – This is another straight Stream-o-Nator grab with it expecting Odorizzi to let his funk envelope the Astros tomorrow.

Jake Arrieta – Arri-who now?  I know Arriflex.  I know Arri-out-the-windows-because-I-just-farted.  I even know Ari Emanuel.  I do not know of Jake Arrieta. The other day I delved into Arrieta when I said, “Throughout his career, he’s thrown around 94 MPH on his fastball, which is usable and almost sexy. His Ks have been downright yawnstipating though, because his secondary pitches have been borderline dreadful. The only thing that was truly nasty in his arsenal was his cutter. Why not throw it more, you ask. Great question, over-the-internet friend. Only you should’ve asked it last year. He’s bumped his usage of the cutter from 6% of the time to almost 20% of the time this year. The percentage of times a batter swings and misses has gone from 6.8% to plus-9%. 6.8% would have him around that of Jarred Cosart and barely in the top 100 starters. Plus-9% has him in the top 25 starters. He’s struggled with control in the past, so far he’s got that under 3 walks per nine. He’s not throwing more first pitch strikes, but the amount of swings and misses a batter is taking at balls inside and outside the strike zone has gone up. It’s still a small sample size — that’s what she said! — but I think he’s figured something out. I.e., how to pitch. If he were available in my league, I’d definitely look at grabbing him.”  And that’s me quoting me!

James Jones – “Siri, what do you think of James Jones for SAGNOF?”  “There is one Aames Home Loan nearby.”

Brock Holt – He’s nearly at 50% owned after three weeks of me telling you to pick him up, which, of course, means he will now be terrible.  I’m only half joking.  The bottom half, at least that’s the half girls usually laugh at.

Kole Calhoun – He had a huge night the other day — 4-for-5, 3 runs, homer, 2 RBIs — so naturally The Sciosciapath benched him the next game.  I like Calhoun, but he will not play every day.

Adam Eaton – Of all the outfielders in this week’s Buy, Eaton is capable of being the best.  Though ‘capable’ and ‘doing’ are in two different Showcase Showdowns.

Colby Rasmus – Was just activated this week, so we know what Bill in ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department has to say.  Bill?  *Bill stares blankly*  Bill?  *nudge Bill*  Ah!  Oh, geez, Bill replaced himself with a lifelike mannequin.

Jake Marisnick – Why was Marisnick scared of Calhoun?  Because Calhoun, Eaton, Rasmus.  I looked for Rasmus on waivers but he was gone; I’d own Calhoun and Eaton, but both are gone, so I’m riding Marisnick in my RCL, until Brantley’s better.  Gndlkchsww– Sorry, fingers crossed that Brantley returns tomorrow.

J.D. Martinez – Been about the hottest schmotato in Hot Schmotato Land, which is what I’ve altered Molasses Swamp to on my Candy Land.

SELL

Chris Davis – According to the Buysellatops, this is a crazy Sell, and says you should be buying Davis, but the Buysellatops also sees cars and gets freaked out.  Anyone can tell you to Sell someone like Alfredo Simon.  Well, anyone with a bulletproof vest.  Selling low isn’t as easy.  Member when I told you to sell Prince Fielder low?  That worked out well, right?  You should trust your Uncle Grey.  I’ll tell you why, come here and sit on my lap.  Metaphorically!  Get off!  Davis’s fly balls have dropped — literally! — and his ground balls have gone up — not literally!  It doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to tell you that more ground balls and less fly balls is not good for him.  As I’ve always warned with him, his near-30% K-rate is death if he hits more balls in play.  Striking out a third of the time and hitting ground balls another third of the time can be death for a guy like Davis.  He should get his 30 homers, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it comes with a .230 average.  You’re basically looking at a rich man’s Adam Dunn.  I will call him Adam Some.  I wouldn’t trade him for two tickets to the Kajagoogoo reunion tour, but I would explore offers.

    Would you use your #1 waiver claim on Melancon in an 8 Team H2H league? I have Soriano, Rodney, Doolittle, and Allen as it stands now – and I have the roster space to play 5 closers.

  5. Bob says:

    Guy offered me Adrian Gonzalez for either Jordan Zimmerman or James shields.

    Hold or take one of the offers?

    Or I could counter with Cobb, Iwakuma, or Fister.

        @Grey: I’m looking for offensive production (HR, R, RBI) more than speed or AVG. Thanks.

  7. Barenrewn says:

    So I drafted Segura and stuck w/ him. I’ve also seen Crawford on the wire. My stubborn nature wants to stick w/ Segura but is Crawford better ROS?

    I heard Sail like 5 times at my daughters dance recital. I’ll admit it was kinda weird

    Brad Mills : first start of the year, worth a stream tonight?

  12. Adam Jonesin says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey,
    What do you think of Kemp for Soria? My OF is stacked and Kemp is on the outside looking in. Also, Willingham, Crisp, and Arcia are all available somehow, so it’s not a huge downgrade for the 5th OF. I just lost Grilli, so I can use the saves. Seems fair, except SAGNOF and all.
    Thanks!

    @Grey: weekly roto redraft, who do you like more between arcia and fowler?

  14. These SP’s are availbe in my roto league..I can stream 3, you like any of these guys:

    H Alvarez
    Haren
    I Kennedy
    Morton
    Hi Me Garcia
    Kuroda..

    thanks, and enjoy your weekend!

      • @Grey:
        Alvarez @ home v the Mets, J Foh really likes him
        Kuroda @ home v the Orioles
        Kennedy @ home v the Dodgers v Haren
        Garcia @ home v Philly
        Morton @ the Cubs

    Marisnick or JD Martinez? Don’t know much about the former.

    Kid A, if you read this, know that I offered you that trade for Segura BEFORE this post came out.

        @Grey: Would it be safe to say that Yelich is what we wanted A-Jax to be two years ago?

        • Grey

          Yup

      @Cram It: tell me more about how bad Yelich is again

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Idk how you(s) can say that’s what he IS. It’s what you think/hope he is. When he goes 15/30/.300, THIS year, I’ll eat crow. You can have my 25th round pick next year…

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Cram It: Like i said in the other aryicle, he’s on pace for 90+ runs, 25 bags and 15 HR’s. He’s not a .300 but .275 isn’t out of the question

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            @J-FOH: I like the kid, obviously, I’ve been trying to get him. I think you’re overvaluing him right now, but it’s understandable.

            • J-FOH says:
              (link)

              @Cram It: I’m just playing the game, I don’t think 15/25 with 90 runs is crazy talk. 41 runs in 250 AB’s is friggin sick yo’s

              • Cram It says:
                (link)

                @J-FOH: And I’m just trying/lowballing to get a top of the order guy with runs/SB’s. Freakin’ Fort Know with trades up in the FCL.

                • J-FOH says:
                  (link)

                  @Cram It: it’s a tough room. I haven’t had anything realistic thrown my way since OTS and I did the Gonzo for Mad max deal.

                    (link)

                    @J-FOH: you got scherzer for A-Gon in a league with knowledgeable opp’s. damn. i just got Cobb for A-Gon 2 days ago in a league with probably less knowledgeable people. But of course you may have done that back during start of the year when A-Gon was going really good.

  17. MarkedMan says:

    Okay could you rank Suarez, Owings, Odor, Crawford, LeStella, Rutledge or Gennett for MI?

    1. What to do with Minor and Bailey in an 8 Team H2H league? Gotta just sit on them and hope they figure it out, right?

    2. How would you rank these SPs for me:

    Kennedy, H.Alvarez, Archer, Wheeler, Ventura, Minor, Cole, Gallardo

    3. Do I hang on to Singleton when I have Davis, Rizzo, and Howard, as well? We do have an IF slot, and two UTIL slots, so he can be useful at times. But I could also dump him for a hot bat, if necessary.

    8 Team H2H – H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OB+SLUG, W, QS, SV, KS, KS/9, ERA, WHIP

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Yup 2. Ventura, Cole 3. Sure

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Grey: so does that mean that Ventura and Cole are the top two and the rest fall in line with how I put them there?

        Also, does that mean that I should drop Singleton for a hot bat?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I only ranked the top two… I’d hold Singleton

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Grey: so the rest are kind of just tossed in there? Where would you put Wood? I’ll have to take him out of the N/A slot when he’s brought back up.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Minor, Wood…

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Grey: thanks man. I really appreciate it. This team is a mess and I’m trying to get the best team on paper that I can. It’s been a mess with injuries and poorly timed pickups (missing out on Gattis, Frazier, K.Davis, and keeping Prince over Tulo).

  21. Quickly counted 39 MLB Martinezs on Rotoworld. Thought that there would be more. & Tino’s still there, so really 38. Around 1 per team? 4 Joses, 3 Carloss and 2 Jesus Martinezs. Would have guessed a lot more on each. That being said, wish Scosiopath could leave my 5th OF Calhoun alone. Would you drop him for one of the 38 & your final ‘Buy’, JD? Thanks for a great week..

    Current offense: Meso, Abreu, Phillips, Longo, Segura, Hill, Moss, Stanton, Gordon, Hamilton, Willingham, Eaton, Morales

    Would you replace Meso with Montero who just became available?

    Do you like: Butler, Beltran, Rasmus, Owings, or any of the other guys in this weeks column better ROS than what you see on my offense?

    OBP league, in need of power and bad need of a shortstop with Lowrie’s suckitude. Been offered Ellsbury for Hanley. Know you liked Hanley a little more at the start of the year and in an OBP league the difference is even greater. Sounds (i)deal right?

    got beat to wood since i didn’t want to drop morton or milone for today or weekend. 2nd best team grabbed him. i easily could’ve last night. how does wood rank against these (which i do have, and knowingly kept over him). would’ve dropped morton after today.
    1. mchugh/heaney/walker/gee/
    2. different league i can still grab wood. him or gausman. weird thing is i did stash and hold wood in NL only (any good pitcher is stashable there, got hahn this morning)

            @Grey: yeah if he’s better than 3 guys i kept him over that’s real dumb on my part. 2 of those are in active slots too. wood’s RP appearances led to me too much so believing he wasn’t as good as he was starting earlier in the year.

    arenado/wily p/wood/hughes/roark/arrieta/niese aren’t seemingly ranked properly on player rater for differing reasons. where out of say 300 do you see them? if you don’t have a number in your head just say one name they are next to at their positions. i have a draft where the yahoo software doesn’t work nor war room and i’m making a written draft list.

        @Balmy Tundrastein: it might be easiest to phrase answers like SP 25 or 3B 8. my draft board shows the exact same numbers based on player rater (ROS) so i could just slot them in.

      Grey says:
      (link)

      He’s just hot

  72. I made an executive decision regarding my C in my H@H points league..

    I am constantly being told to hold Yan Gomes. Well I cut him for Derek Norris

    I did some research:

    Gomes first was 1 39th RD pick by Boston and then 1 10th RD pick by Toronto after college..NEVER a highly touted prospect..

    Norris a 4th RD pick ranked as high as 38th on baseball America’s prospect lis in 2010.

    Gomes has struggled in his first year as full time..

    Norris has hit all year and puts up better numbers than Gomes even when he only plays a few games a week..

    Norris has a 1-1 BB-K ratio…Dude is locked in..

    Make me proud Derek Norris, make me proud and fuck you Matt Wieters for forcing me to have to make these dreaded catcher decisions..ugh..

    cheers brotha

    I’ve been offered Chissenhall ($4) for Heaney($2)

    I have Goldy at 1B, Miggy @ 3B, Arenando ($12) (DL), Panda ($12) @ CI, Mark Reynolds ($4) @ UTIL.

    My staff is Teheran, Homer, Bauer ($2) , Keuchel ($2), Hutchinson ($2), Eovaldi ($1), Heaney ($2) Kenley, & KRod.

    I was looking replace Mark Reynolds at UTIL with Arenando when he’s off the DL. Should I hold onto Heaney, or trade him for Chissenhall and kick off another corner man?

    My gut says to hold as I don’t think my staff can take the hit. If you think it can, who do you think I should boot?

        @Grey:
        My gut reaction is always against it too, but I’d rather have an extra SP than an extra bench bat, and there are no obvious deficiencies in my lineup (though I am a mid-pack team as it stands).
        I’ll take another look, see if I can get two second tier SP out of the deal.

    How much greater do you value David Ortiz over Adrian Gonzalez?
    I could get Agon for a fister or iwakuma I think, worst case Shields or Zimmerman.
    A deal with Ortiz and strasburg would cost me Braun and fister and I’m not sure I want to trade Braun.
    Can I expect Agon to be on par with or a bit below Ortiz?
    Should I be satisfied with Agon, or is Ortiz that much better than him?

    Does anybody else ever go back and review how their team has evolved during a season? While looking at season standings I noticed I’ve made 120 moves this year on my $$$$ H2H team, which is something like 4 moves every 3 days, which seems ridiculous doesn’t it? But the league doesn’t have a move limit so why not.

    Anyway, I went back to my opening day lineup and not surprisingly I only have 7 players left out of the 24 I started out with: Stanton, McCutchen, Bruce, Abreu, Cobb, Teheran and Sanchez. The first player to go was Brad Miller on April 2. The good news is there isn’t a player on that opening day lineup I wish I could have back. And I remember thinking it was a pretty solid draft.

    Being in first place makes nostalgia worthwhile, and Grey and the rest of the Razzball crew have made it possible and worthwhile to make 120 roster changes in 90 days. Thanks guys!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha… Nice… Yeah, we look at our end of the season rosters compared to the team we drafted…

        @Grey: What’s the highest turnover rate you’ve seen? Last year I made 342 moves in this league, counting six weeks of playoff. But I still had 9 left from the draft going into the last week of the finals.

            • Abdoozy says:
              (link)

              @goodfold2: Because I’m psychic?

              Dropped him for Dee Gordon because my draft was light on speed. He was one of the last guys I drafted and as high on him as Grey and everyone else seemed to be, I’m close enough to Seattle to have enough history with Ms letting me down one way or another.

        @Grey: esp in the leagues where i kept gausman over wood, and now have a stream spot again, when in some of these i thought gausman was better than stream spot. isn’t ubaldo still sucking up a roster spot over there?

    Howdy grey, someone in my league dropped jean segura, would you look to add him ? My main SS is Alexei Ramirez who hasn’t been that great- hasn’t been bad, just has his moments, power wise segura has 4 homers & Ramirez has 7 homers. Since I do have dee Gordon who has eligibility at SS I could move Gordon from 2b to SS then a-ram to bench & pedroia to 2b.

    Here are other SS’s available; jimmy Rollins, asdrubal Cabrera , Jhonny peralta , alcides Escobar, everth Cabrera, brad miller, Chris owings, Brandon Crawford & zobrist who has eligibility at SS

    Gracias señor master grey! Buenos noches!

    i just got done drafting a 10 team league with 5 keepers and OPS/QS. as soon as i’m done i try to go to the team and i can log into email but when i try to hit fantasy, or baseball it flashes error 999. anybody ever heard of this?
    here’s roster. how’s it look. 4 OF, 1 IF, 2 utils.
    rosario
    freeman/rizzo
    utley/odor
    arenado/bogaerts
    desmond/bogaerts
    zimmerman

    Bumgarner/J.zimm/lester/ryu/arrieta/beckett/fister/gee
    qualls/rondon/ramirez/perkins/kenley
    want to DL gee and arenado and go pickup 2 more players (belisario) but can’t due to this error.

    • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
      (link)

      @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: grabbed burnett (he’ll be stream spot), dropped ramirez for mejia. team looks a little weak at homers (for a 10 teamer). which of these would i rather have
      1.dunn or teixiera for homers/rbi’s
      2. drop anybody for a 10 SP (wily p or alvarez). i may have enough runs and steals that one of pagan/calhoun are superfluous. zimm counts as OF to so really do probably have enough of them.
      3. at pick 9 took braun over puig (thought i might be able to get both better that way, turns out i was wrong), and i took rizzo over abreu (think that’s good considering age, and rizzo is learning how to really get on base)

    oh yeah, cron comes off waivers just in time in 16 teamer for me to backup my pujols while dropping arcia at same time. (he was gonna turn into stubbs or somebody, and just get dropped when arenado’s back anyway). can probably grab arcia again if he hits and plays more than 1 day in a row anyway later. he was dropped a few days ago.

    Because I think that Napoli is a good value but I had no place to play him behind Goldy and Rizzo, I’ve been looking to move him. Your article made me wonder if I could get Segura for him, especially as the Segura owner is playing Aybar over him. I made the offer, and then Segura proceeded to hit the 2 HRs, making me think prospects for acceptance took a couple of hits (pun points?). But it was accepted. While I do think this can help the other team as well (had been playing Hosmer), it brings me some 2B/SS flexibility. Thanks for the suggestion!

    new orphan h2h team. it’s truly horrible on offense. way too good pitching starters. previous owner had only made 4 moves whole year. i just made 10 in a few minutes (66 left on year now). it’s BB/OPS/QS/holds/total bases/ slugging (so almost 3 different ways of OPS/OBP). added infante/mostsuckass/cherios (C)/vogt/saunders (DL) and a bunch of holds guys to make this: 1 util no CI/MI and 3 OF.
    chirinos/vogt
    butler/cron
    infante
    villar
    mostsuckass/zimmerman
    de aza/kemp/brown/zimmerman/vogt
    saunders/crawford (DLs)
    waino/cueto/darvish/beckett (see too good of pitching)/milone/shoemaker (stream spot)
    janssen/melancon/rodney/walden/mcgowan/r.webb
    now have 4.6 pickups per week to try to compete in innings (counting stat)/K’s/QS and the like. only good thing is with those 4 good pitchers my streamers will have ratio buffers.

    1. drop any of villar or OF’ers for any of
    j.jones/rutledge/mercer/
    2. instead of having both vogt/chirinos (hot hitting catcher tandem) should i just keep the horrible castro or the almost as horrible zunino. i’m figuring with all those OPS/slugging/total bases/BB categories i surely need hitters that are good (even if only short term).

    • Grey

      1. Vogt for Jones 2. Yes, Castro

    in more evidence STL are lying shits, wacha is on DL with shoulder thing. just a few days ago not only did STL say there was no issue with him, just getting some time off to be fresh in september-october, they actually got Wacha himself to say “there’s no problem at all” to the local media. damn shits. also garcia is going DL.

    damn koji and his ballooning era (above 1 now), i needed a save not a win.

  225. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    winning average in a .277 tie (3rd decimal place or lower winning). down 2 homers and 6 hits. up or down too much anything else to matter. do i play rios/andrus or pujols/andrus or just bench both and take the avg win. 6 hits is a lot for 2 guys, and 2 homers from those guys (rios this year is the triples king, not homers) is even more.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: now more complicated. now winning average .280 to .277 and down 1 homer and 5 hits.
      1.play pujols/andrus
      2. play rios/andrus
      3. play nobody

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @goodfold2: starting to look like play andrus/rios, only down 5 hits and 1 homer. they’ll have to get more than 2 hits if they get 8 at bats.

    Hi Grey,

    Would you trade Kyle Seager for Jean Segura?

    Thanks!

  228. Brett says:

    For the rest of this season only.

    I have Melky Cabrera, Polanco and Springer. Who gets the cut? Need the slot to open up, have no choice but to get rid of one. Who is the odd man out here?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Melky

      • Rudacious says:

        @Grey:

        Nice. Thanks Grey. Do you like Coco Crisp better than either Springer or Polanco?

          Grey says:

          Nah

  230. Hoosier Daddy says:

    Can pick up Wood. Who do I drop?

    Hutchinson, Bauer, Keuchel, or Eovaldi?

      Grey says:

      Hutch

  231. goodfold2 says:

    damn, rios has looked terribly off on like all 5 or so of his swings.

  232. Dan Rydell says:

    Would you trade Ryan Zimmerman for Jean Segura?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Sure

  233. Nightpandas says:
    (link)

    Was offered Buerle and M Montero + 7th and 8th round picks for R Martin and two 3rd round picks (keep 11)

    Think Buerle can keep it up? Would you do the deal? Currently 4pts out of 1st

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d take it

  234. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    andrus locked up average with that. ok, just 3 or more hits now andrus/rios, with a homer and we’ll be GOOOOOOD (that’s a long good, not God)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha

  235. Hulkster says:
    (link)

    Thoughts on Singleton vs. Castellanos – is it even close? They both qualify as ‘prospects’ in my league meaning I can keep them in addition to my other good keepers. We also have to start a rookie. I am pretty far back, and may be able to trade a starter for one if worth it (i.e Fister, Archer, Minor, maybe Odorizzi because he’s a rookie).

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      @Hulkster: it’s funny cause odorizzi was a “rookie” last year too. stupid definitions not making sense.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d want Singleton

    • Mello Yello says:
      (link)

      @Hulkster: Dude get after sone Fister and Archer and that was all sexual

  236. Puig's Poutines says:

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: also j.smith. it’s not bad if that holds guy is also a closer guy.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Neshek

  239. john says:
    (link)

    last idea trade my mesoraco and dickerson for rios, scoop up perez

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Rios

  240. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    if RBI’s are needed would a scooter/harrison tandem lose one of them for odor? also total bases and hits (all three hit for high average lately though).

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Hold

  241. Puig's Poutines says:

      Grey says:

      Cron

  242. Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
    (link)

    what size leagues should we be picking up odrisamer (cashner stratched tomorrow)
    1.drop Hahn for him in NL only?
    2. drop hahn for him in a 20 teamer?
    what level (if any) of pitchers should we drop in 10-18′s for him?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

    @Grey: who do you like between Fein and burton as Perkins handcuff?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Fein

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Smokey would say the same thing, as Fien has been backup closer (8th inning man) for at least a month. also burton has had at least 2 periods over the year of being str up bad. I’ve had to bench him two separate times in a 30 man league (luckily also have fien), still benched. but he was good today. has been good for almost 4 consecutive innings now.

    Did you see the guy at the US game that was literally the spitting image of Teddy Roosevelt? That was freggin classic! (unlike how that game ended)…any the who, I smell some 2B depth action with Odor, and it’s of a fairly decent odor (smells like weed….it’s great, but some people don’t get it)
