Joey Gallo, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo walk into a bar.  The bar says, “Ow.”  There should be an All-Star Game weekend festivity where Gallo, Judge and Giancarlo hit home runs and people guess how far it went, but they guess in miles.  “I’m gonna say that went 4.5 miles.”  “Ooh, sorry, there’s no such number as ‘point.’  You don’t win a house.”  Gallo doesn’t hit mammoth shots.  Mammoth shots hit home runs and say, “That was a Gallo shot.”  Have you seen one of his homers?  Picture a ball sailing about 550 feet and screaming, “Holy crap, how am I getting back home?”  Home run balls he hits call Uber after Gallo hits ’em.  So, I’m obviously a fan, and Beltre doesn’t even have a return date yet.  This might be one of those situations where Beltre is gone for another month and, even when he returns, Gallo just moves to the outfield.  It’s slightly ridiculous he’s available in so many leagues, and I’d remedy that.  Immediatemente.  That’s immediately in Spanish.  I did take 13 years of Spanish, after all.  You’re gracias.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Austin Hedges – On the team where I drafted Hedges, I have an 0-for-18 from Hedges, then I dropped him for Travis d’ohArmnooooo, who went 1-for-8, and he was gone for Sandy Leon, who went 0-for-3, and bye-bye to Alex Avila, who went 1-for-5 with a homer, but I dropped him too for Tony Wolters, who is hitting .500 on my team in 12 at-bats and who I’m now holding until prolly, I don’t know, tomorrow.  My point?  I should’ve just Ron Popeil’d my catcher and Set it and Forget It with Hedges, instead I’ve been picking my catcher scab and it has not worked out at all.

Cody Bellinger – I just gave you my Cody Bellinger fantasy.  It was written while keepin’ it hundred.

Mitch Moreland – There’s a chance here that Moreland is still not owned in leagues, because some of the people in fantasy leagues, between their drafts and the season starting, were playing freeze tag and it didn’t work out well for them.  They’re frozen with pigeons landing on them and doing poos, but if people aren’t frozen grab Moreland.

Yulieski Gurriel – Is he now going by Yuli?  If I were him, I would’ve changed my name to Yuliesnowboard.  Any hoo!  Gurriel has been hot recently, though legit not doing much but getting base-knocks, which I guess is enough.

Kolten Wong – I know I’m not the only one having this problem.  I go to waivers and I look for free agents.  I really need a middle infielder, but all I see is a bunch of corner infidels.  On one team, I’m currently rocking Mitch “Don’t Kill My Vibe” Moreland, Anthony “The Suck” Rendon, Torenado, Mini Donkey, Travis Phshaw, and Jose “Nearly As Sucky As Rendon” Abreu and every time I look at waivers there’s still more corner men, but middle infielders are like, “Um, well, I guess Wong’s playing.”

Hernan Perez – When Perez went off the other day, I was in a Consumer Value Store (CVS, to those not in the know).  I saw Perez was heating up right as an old lady asked me, “Sonny, could you help me get down a box of Wheat Thins?”  I was like, “I’m not Sonny Gray, and here!”  I threw the box at her while I was picking up Hernan Perez on my phone.  That’s how quick I need to react when players get hot.  How is Hernan still available in your leagues?  Don’t you need to get guys crazy fast?  I have a deal with Prospector Ralph (who did a great job covering for me this morning, because I had a friend in from Dubai).  When someone needs to be picked up, we text each other and I literally stop everything and grab guys.  This is Prospector Ralph the other day, “Cody Bellinger called up.”  Nothing else!  That’s it!  And I screeched to the side of the highway, and grabbed him in all my leagues.  Well, all leagues except the league I’m in with PR.

Ryon Healy – Okay, not hot, but I still have faith like Edward Norton in that movie I thought was about Billy Joel.

Taylor Motter – I almost made Motter the lede this week, but as I started doing a long string of “Yo Motter” jokes — Yo Motter is so fat her blood type is gravy! — I thought about how we want to highlight baseball skills and not Catskills.  I’m sorry, Motter, I never meant to hurt you.  I never meant to make you cry, but tonight, I’m cleanin’ out my light-power, light-speed composite.

Christian Arroyo – Here’s what I said previously about Arroyo, “This year, he led Triple-A with a .446 average, which was being bolstered, oh, just a tad, by his .481 BABIP.  He’s got little pop and less speed.  Man, where do the Giants find these guys?  It’s like Matt Duffy was traded away by the Giants, and, on his way out the door, he took a massive dump, and Sabean watered that for nine months and now they have Arroyo.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Tim Beckham – So hizzot it’s ridunkulous.  So hizzot I can’t even talk like a normal person.  I’m jibber-jabbering!

Amed Rosario – The other day Lenny Dykstra posted a video saying the Mets should call up Amed to spark their offense, and, for a guy that was likely on serious drugs and within a few hours of ending up in prison again, he was making sense.  The Mets need a spark.

David Peralta – You need to platoon him out when the D-Backs face lefties, because Peralta tends to sit vs. them, but he’s been good enough vs. righties that he’s worth owning.

Delino DeShields – The Dentist says, “Aaaaaaaahh…” and it’s less like “Aaaaaaaahh, that hurts really bad; don’t you have nitrous I can suck into my face,” and more like, “Aaaaaaaahh, all right let’s see something because I picked you back up.”

Michael Conforto – Now that Cespedes strained a hammy in one of his hundred legs, Conforto will be a starter for the foreseeable future.  If he makes good on his promise for the next, say two-three weeks, then Conforto will be one of those guys people look back on in September as someone they wished they owned.  If you can find room for him, do it, as Ben Stiller said in that awful movie.  No, not that awful one, the other awful one.  No, not the Billy Joel one with Edward Norton.

Kevin Pillar – I grabbed him a couple weeks ago when he was hot, and have held him because he’s stayed productive.  In a way, he’s set up shop on my team.  I guess, considering Pillar, he’s more become a statue of sorts.

Aaron Altherr – You know the place Parts Unknown?  No, of course you don’t!  It’s Parts Unknown!  It’s in the name!  But, with that in mind, for Reasons Unknown, the Phils sometimes play Saunders and Nava and not Altherr, but, like a fireman would say, the latter has been hot.

Jarrod Dyson – SAGNOF!

Scott Schebler – If you’ve been reading Razzball for a minute, which is actually a long time according to the Urban Dictionary, then you know Schebler was on a bunch of my deeper league teams last year because Steamer loved him for years.  Yeah, well, as you can imagine, I didn’t draft Schebler this year.  Fool me once shame on you!  Fool me twice–Wait, by not drafting him this year, I have been fooled twice, haven’t I?  What if you don’t know you’ve been fooled twice?  Is there a saying for this, George Bush?

Hector Neris – This is weird (not funny or interesting).  Neris is owned in 13% less leagues than Brad Brach.  I know there’s Joaquin Benoit in Philly, but there’s a commoner of the British empire in Baltimore that will definitely replace Brach.  I told you weird, but not funny or interesting.

Matt Bush – If you could read between the lines of my previous blurb, you’ll realize Bush is also owned in less leagues than Brach.  Oh em gee, I just realized something!  There’s lots of elderly women playing fantasy baseball and Brach reminds them of hard candies.  That might also be why Gausman is owned in so many leagues still, because their husbands have random cuts that they can’t explain and have wrapped themselves in gauze.  Wait again!  That might be why that woman in CVS said, “Wheat Thins–Did you say Hernan Perez is hot?!”

Shawn Kelley – The day before Koda Glover was injured, I put in a $30 FAAB bid on him.  Yeah, I won that bid, and now I’m out $30.  *pats self on back with sword*

Bud Norris – Appears locked into the Angels’ closer role.  Yes, that is as sad as it sounds.

J.J. Hoover – The Diamondbacks’ closer shituation is a total mess.  Hoover sounds like he sucks and/or blows, Rodney sounds like he gets no respect, and George of the Roses sounds like a B&W professional wrestler, which is good until you think about how wrestling wasn’t ‘cool’ until the 1980s and how freakin’ sad a 1950’s wrestler must be. George of the Roses probably chilled with George Reeves and they talked about how they wanted to commit suicide.  How depressing, nice to see you, now please leave.  I’d back up Rodney with Hoover, but I have no faith in this shituation.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – The Stream-o-Nator is willing to give Ryu another chance, and I don’t think it’s simply because the Stream-o-Nator is lonely and cuts pictures of people out of magazines and talks to them.

Ty Blach – I like Blach in NL-Only leagues, and the Stream-o-Nator likes him for his next start, like it enjoys talking to toll collectors for a few minutes until people start beeping.

SELL

Adrian Gonzalez – Most of my sells are about trading and ‘being a salesman at a car dealership and wheeling-slash-dealing.’  Um, yeah, in shallower leagues, A-Gon can likely be dropped.  Or maybe added to another trade as a sweetener, like how fructose is a sweetener that causes diabetes.

Chris Davis – Grey’s cleaning out his power 1st basemen composites!  Unlike A-Gon, I’d try to get something for Chris Davis, but I think the days of getting something you actually want in return might be over.  I don’t know, try it and let me know how it goes (don’t tell me).

Julio Teheran – Something’s wrong with Teheran.  Maybe it’s the Muslim ban.  Did his fastball get stuck in customs?  Asking for a friend, if I were friends with Teheran.  His fastball is way down, his Ks are bleh and his xFIP is 5.20.  Okay, trouble.  I wouldn’t sell Teheran for a ticket to see Danny Pintauro’s one man show, “I’m Now The Boss!” But I would explore options.

    Gallo or Bergman?
    Head to head league

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Adam: Bregman

  2. dustyfingers says:

    Shoemaker is on waivers. Do I give up Conforto or Bellinger for him or do drop J Ross or Manaea? It’s a daily category league, so extra pitchers help. I could use another pitcher but don’t want to regret dropping a break out hitter. If I knew whether or not Bellinger was staying would help a lot.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d lose Manaea for him

  3. Thanks for the recommendations, Grey. Please rank Ryu, A. Wood, J. Garcia and Triggs. Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      No problem, Wood, Garcia, Ryu, but depends on matchups

      • Thanks! Have a great weekend.

          You too!

    Poor Sandy Leone, in last place behind a maker of classic spaghetti westerns and an Indian porn star turned Bollywood music video dancer for “most entertaining person named S. Leone”

    On a more relevant topic, do you think DeShields and Gallo pose any risk that Mazara’s going to get platooned against lefties?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      HA… Yeah, Mazara’s in trouble, slumping’s not helping

  5. Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:

    Perfect timing! I’ve been making bedroom eyes at Gallo in my OBP OPS keeper for a while, dealing with The Suck at 3B, staring at a recently dropped Frazier and Gallo on the wire while I patiently await waivers on Sunday.

    Seriously considering grabbing $5 Gallo over $13 Frazier – both are doing the low average good walk rate thing, but Gallo is doing it a lot better!

    Am I crazy? No, I’m not asking you, imaginary Nicholas Cage from Faceoff! And stop doing that face waterfall thing with your hand to me!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha…I think it’s slightly crazy not to just go Frazier, but could work out for you in short term

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks. Something about those 500 foot dongs! Probably not sustainable, but Gallo’s been hitting .212 but somehow maintaining a plus-to-elite .360 obp. Frazier never sniffed that or its corresponding OPS even when he hit .270 27/20.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I hear ya, but Frazier gets his dongs too

          • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Yeah – frazier it is!

  6. Tank1 says:

    Deal Duffy and either Britton or Melancon for Darvish? Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, either, Britton first

  7. Nitro says:
    (link)

    HTH points league. I am getting impatient with C Correa. Would I be crazy to offer him for J. Ramirez? Right now J. Ramirez has doubled Correa’s points. If not Ramirez, who should I target? (hitter).
    Thanks Grey

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, crazy

      # of teams matters more, but nah, not yet

  9. Kratos says:

    Shaw or Gallo?

      Grey says:

      Shaw

  10. Warren Loegering says:

    Adam Jones and Abreu dropped in a shallow h2h OBP league. Think they can have a good ROS?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I’d own both

    • Pousse-Pousse says:
      (link)

      @Warren Loegering: WTH? Adam Jones isn’t even off to a bad start.

      • Warren Loegering says:
        (link)

        @Pousse-Pousse: I know, I was shocked. Dude is stacked in the OF so maybe he couldn’t find any takers for a trade.

  11. Petey not Pablo says:

    Afternoon grey!!!

    H2H points/ weekly league.

    Lost cespedes to the dreaded DL, upon putting cespedes in my DL who to add at OF? Available Jason Heyward, David peralta, Hernan Perez (available at both 3b & OF me likey), mister hunter pence, pillar, the scheb ; Scott schebler, Max Kepler lastly parra too.

    Here are my OFs we start 4 Harper , cespedes (DL), schwarber, benintendi, then at utility slots I have Souza & Judge. My C willson contreras is also eligible at OF on my bench Margot & conforto.

    Next dump my cozart for tim Beckham? If no what about either solarte, motter who’s only at SS maybe will gain OF soon? WHat abou yuli Guerrero he’s eligible 1b & 3b.

    Thanks have a great weekend!!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I like Peralta a lot, but he’s vs. a lefty today…Hernan for today… Yeah, lose Cozart for Motter…. You too!

      • @Grey: is an “afternoon grey” like a “nooner”? Asking for a friend.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          HA

  12. Cram It says:

    Number of days left that someone asks about dropping Rendon?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Zero

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @Grey: He’s not going off tonight. 0-11 against Degrom.

        I take it Rudy’s not into Led Zeppelin. Would have guess’d a “Gallow’s Pole” reference. Swinging from….oh forget it!

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Ha, I don’t get that reference at all, but I think Rudy would… Yeah, Rendon’s on my bench yet again, what a miserable bastard Rendon is

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Haha. Dude, Led Zeppelin! You’re so not rock ‘n roll…

              (link)

              I’m not, I don’t know one song by them other than Stairway and without Google I’m not 100% sure that’s them

                • Grey

          Conforto on WW.Only real drop is Ender.Would be the only bench guy,rotating in the UT spot according to matchups.@Cram It: That’s what I was thinking at first, but I’m a Nats fan and I bet this pouty little Nance was hating the flight back to DC.He might put the bong down for a few days and go on a streak.

          • Grey

            I’d hold for now

      Right above, someone asked…Sigh… I have him in our RCL b/c you said something in the RCL chatroom on draft day about not having him anywhere, and I thought to myself, “Hey, I don’t either,” so I drafted him…

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I actually said I have him anywhere! I was saying he was such good value as my starting 3B because he was being completely ignored. He’s on 4 of my 5 teams.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Oh, crap, I knew you said something… Yeah, I wish you would’ve just drafted him!

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            @Grey: He will come around with a vengeance! He didn’t hit his first HR last year until May 3rd. I still ain’t worried yet.

    Great timing on Schebker blurb. I asked about him on your previous post but too late for a reply. I have several “buys” in my shaky OF. Could he be a contributor in a ten cat league with this group…Dahl, Dyson, Hernan, Conforto, Parra, Heyward. Who would go?

    Own Iglesias/Casilla/Rodney/Rosenthal as my (gulp) closers. Available pitchers: Hoover/Miranda/Feldman/Zimmerman. Thinking Hoover for Rosenthal with Miranda/Feldman underneath. Don’t trust Zim. Since I own (unfortunately) Rodney, thinking $55 for Hoover, and $15/$7 for Miranda/Feldman.

    Grey!!!

    Nice buy-sell column!!!

    Only have 8 of the ‘buy’ guys mentioned above.

    a. Hedges – dropped him too after that 0/25 then picked him back up after the 2-HR night and have not looked at any other catcher since.

    b. Hernan Perez after you told me to drop Toles for him. Only he wasn’t available in THAT RCL he was available in THE OTHER RCL!!! Anyway, I got him where he was available. He will suck from here to eternity fur sure!

    c. Healy, well I drafted him everywhere. He’s been mostly pukish. Hopefully things will improve.

    d. Beckham because he’s hot and Aledmys is not. I’ll keep him in there until Aledmys does something.

    e. DeShields Jr., because well I have his father’s Donruss 1989 rookie card which I hold up to DeShields Jr.’s face when he goes up to bat against an opposing pitcher to encourage him to be as good as his Pa. I told myself this year that I would not follow live games to save time to do other important things (like sleeping, looking for a better job or spending extra quality time with the family) because it really doesn’t matter if I watch the game or not. The result will not be altered by me watching or willing someone to hit a HR or strike out a batter.

    f. Schebler – Only have him on one team. His batting average is putrid so there’s that too.

    g. Neris – a recent acquisition though I remember him from last year and he’s been as good or better this year.

    h. Hoover – picked him today reading all the comments from PR’s write-up this AM. He could take over and he could emulate 2016 Hoover which was like opening up the Hoover dam!

    Cheers,
    Ante

    I have a suggestion for some buys. If in a league with a deep bench, owning both Brewers’ catchers has been amazing!!!!!!

    I picked up Manny and Jett after D’Arnaud went down and it’s made a huge difference. I’ve never had such a great catcher situation. Of course, I’m sure it won’t last…

    Have a great weekend…good luck with all your teams!

    1. is this the best order for saves:
    hoover/biagini/grilli/rosie (oh’s been fine for at least 3 straight saves now)

    2. in a different league if i have doolittle/norris/bedrosian (DL)/capps/osuna/feliz/parker (who i’m dropping with my last drop of week for something at some point)
    is it worth dropping doolittle for biagini?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      1. Hoover, Grilli 2. Why Biagini? Did I miss something?

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: he’s been a LOT better than grilli anyway. i didn’t read anything specific though.

        • Grey

          He has been better, but Grilli is setup man, and Osuna is still there

    Grey,

    Two questions:

    1) My three starting pitchers tonight are Scherzer at home vs NYM, Lance Lynn at home vs CIN, and Maeda at home vs PHI. Besides Mad Max, would you start either Lynn or Maeda?

    2) Looking to grab another arm or a bat. CHoices at pitcher are Matt Cain, Derek Holland, Folty
    hitters: Freese, Nava, Dat Dude, Aoki, Yonder Alonso, Gennett

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      1. Start all three 2. Folty

      • Scott Kimmel says:

        would you drop Dyson, or will he get the closer job back

        • Grey

    Hey Grey!

    15 team 5 x 5 roto. Going well but low in saves.

    Been offered Colome for either of my Piscotty or JBJ…

    Fair? Too much? Too early in season to pay for saves? SAGNOF…?

    Thanks as always!!

    similar question:
    3. in a 16 teamer with holds and saves (sold separately), i have rivero/betances/koji/norris/familia/bearclaw (and glover on DL). drop anybody (possibly koji, but CUBS will likely end up with many holds) for hoover? clearly norris gets dropped later whether when glover is back or when bedrosian is anyway.

    10 team Yahoo H2H 7×7
    R, H, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG
    W, L, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, QS

    Okay my opponent has the following starts left: C. Anderson vs. ATL, McCarthy vs. PHI and Keuchel vs. OAK and I’m currently down by 1 win, tied in losses, down by 1 K, and barely leading in ERA & WHIP 4.58 – 4.86 & 1.37 – 1.53 respectively.

    For the rest of the week I’m looking at the following start options out of the guys I own and they’re marked with an asterisk*. I included all the other available pitchers to give you an idea of who my opponent could potentially stream last minute as well. So they all starts the rest of the week given my matchup situation?

    4/28
    Ray vs. COL (22.9)*
    Carrasco vs. SEA (13.4)*
    Lynn vs. CIN (12.6)*

    4/29
    Ryu vs. PHI (20.1)
    Liriano vs. TB (9.8)
    Garcia @MIL (0.1)
    Gausman @NYY (-4.1)
    Nelson vs. ATL (-4.4)
    Nova @MIA (-7.3)*
    Chavez @TEX (-12.3)
    Lackey @BOS (-18.6)*

    4/30
    Corbin vs. COL (4.5)
    J. Ross vs. NYM (1.5)
    Wheeler @WSH (-12.4)

      • ebudz says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Okay thanks I’ll be rolling with those guys the rest of this week but here’s the thing I only have one add left for the week!

        1) So should I use it to stream/add one of Ryu or Ross and if so who should I drop?

        2) Or should I use my last add to replace either Brach or Betances for which of the following RPs? Neris, Kelley, B. Norris, Rosenthal, Benoit? I mean we’re tied in Saves at the moment so if I can pickup some saves the next two days and win another category that’d be ideal! I guess if I’m gonna roster 3 RPs on my team then which 3 should I own? Or should I only roster 2 relievers and instead us that roster spot for a SP streamer? My staff looks like this:

        (3) SP: Carrasco, McCullers, Duffy
        (2) RP: Johnson, Brach
        (4) P: Betances, Nova, Severino, Walker
        (6) Bench: Ray, Lackey, Graveman, Urias, Lynn

            @Grey: Got it thanks! So I’ll worry about my RPs next week when my adds reset but for now I’ll plan to use my final add to stream Ryu so I guess I’m dropping Betances? Or let go of one of my SPs?

Tied in Wins now and if Ray gets this Loss then I’ll be losing in Losses 5-2 … up by 20 K’s now and still leading in ERA & WHIP: 4.35-4.99 & 1.29 – 1.54 while my opponent will still have McCarthy vs. PHI, Keuchel vs. OAK and even A. Sanchez vs. TB over the weekend.

Do I start Brach or Britton or both? Do I roll out Desmond (assuming he’s not back in the lineup on Sunday, if he is, I start him)?

          @William Hung: Thanks, WH, good to know. I had actually grabbed Brach before Britton was put on the DL due to his early struggles. I was actually hoping they’d take their time bringing him up.

      @Mike in Busan: desmond not back next week from anything i’ve seen. supposedly britton is coming back sunday or tuesday.

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

        @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: NOW there is some news about desmond coming back possibly even tomorrow. just in time for one spot where i probably just lost souzamaphone for a while (possibly long while as far as being useful), and skaggs too.

        “Ian Desmond “seems poised” to make his Rockies debut in left field Sunday, per Thomas Harding of MLB.com.
        Harding also said Desmond is “in line” to get the start against Diamondbacks southpaw Patrick Corbin, despite no official word from the club”

        and remember, at least this isn’t the same guy (i think anyway) that claimed delino was starting from the start of the year (possibly trolling grey in particular)

    Here’s your next Rendon question!!

    10 team H2H points league.

    I’ve got Rendon in my utility spot. As I watch him go hitless again I’m thinking about dropping him. I can’t trade him for anything and just getting tired of waiting for him. Schoop and Gallo are available. Am I crazy or should I continue to hold?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Hold for now

  111. William Hung says:
    (link)

    @Grey: My first losing streak in a long time. Unless the weekend is amazing for me, this is going to be the first year I went through April without a win. It’s too early to panic right?

    Reasons for my lack of success: Maeda, Story, and Rendon are my biggest busts. Ces on DL and Deez Nutz Gordon not tearing up the bases so I’m losing SBs each week. I really want to keep Rendon and Story on the bench, but then that’s 2 bench bats on a 10 team league roster and limits my flex with SP streaming. I already picked up Gallo to replace Rendon for when he turns it around, but I am thinking of picking up Trumbo and dropping Rendon so I can start Trumbo as my UTIL and have Story on my bench.

    Story’s season so far reminds me of the year Richie Sexson completely went off the rails (2007), but I feel his upside is a lot higher than Rendon.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sure, go Trumbo

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks Grey! With how loyal my leaguemates are with their guys, Rendon is going to be a FA and I’ll just snatch him back up if Gallo sucks.

    Yo Grey which of these hitters in OBP/SLG do you believe are overperforming their abilities the most right now and would be a good sell-high? Looking to thin out some depth and do a 2 for 1 trade potentially, so pick 2 of them to try to trade.

    – Conforto
    – Gallo
    – Benintendi
    – Motter
    – Moreland

    All 5 are studs but I can only play 2 of them each day since the league is pretty shallow. I still think I should be able to deal 2 of them though to a struggling team to clear up a slot for a pitcher

        @Grey: Word okay thanks! It’s a big help to get your trade ideas so I don’t screw myself! However he doesn’t have another SS so I’d probably have to trade him Owings too before he’d even consider giving up Story?…

        1) So should I still go after Story or is Duffy + Hanley + Owings too much for Story? Almost wish I could get a SP back too but I doubt he’d give me anyone worth it?

        2) Or should I go after Polanco and assume Owings will be fine a ROS SS? Who should I offer for Polanco instead of Story if you think he’s a better trade target?

    Grey,

    Grant Dayton was activated from the DL, and I need to activate Sam Dyson then drop to activate Britton. Which 2 guys would you drop for Dayton and Dyson?

    1) Mike Montgomery
    2) Jose Leclerc
    3) Folty

        I have to activate dyson first because he is on my DL spot. Once i activate DYson then I can drop him and someone else for Britton, and Drayton. The 3 i mentioned are active right now.

    So I’ve got a guy in the league that has been plagued by injuries and desperately needs pitching. Is my Chris Davis and Danny Duffy for his Daniel Murphy paying too much? It will greatly upgrade my 1B position and I see that both of my guys seem to be on the way down this season, Duffy’s velo is down and Davis not mashing as before. He has Bumgarner too so I may be able to get him and throw him in the DL for a later pay off. Thoughts? Its a H2H points league

    We do 1 category for Saves+holds in the 5×5 roto 14-team league…along with K, WHIP, ERA and QS.

    My RPs are Dellin Betances, Shawn Kelley, Bud Norris, Brandon Maurer. I probably only need 2 or 3. I ought to keep 7 starters but I’m thinking about only 5-6.

        @The Harrow: i was watching the game, big time Dodger fan here. But after the Puig homer, Neris seemed to be on tilt. Bellinger turned on that inside one and smoked it. Damn he has such a sweet stroke. After that, Neris was totally shaken, threw a ball in the dirt, then JT sat on that inside heater and launched it halfway up the bleachers in left, which is pretty far. I think Neris just caught the bad side of momentum tonight. Benoit look good btw, his heater was explosive and his change was nasty…

    Hi Grey,

    Would you drop one of Blach or Jaime to stash Kendrick? There are no other bats on FA that are getting PT, and I can risk a week with him not playing if it gives me a decent bat in another 7-10 days. Chances are that someone will pick up Kendrick very soon. However, by the time Kendrick comes off the DL, I should also have Joc and Freese back, or close to returning. I can always sit my SPs.

    Thanks!

    Blach – CIN, @CIN

    NL-Only 10-TM H2H.

However, once Freese is back, there’s only room for one in my lineup except for off days. I really don’t need Jaime’s start this week, so he’d go.

    Also, same guy cut AJ Ramos. Would you take Ramos over Kelley? As a Marlins fan, owning Ramos sounds frustrating.

    I know you don’t like Kiermaier, and now I am starting not to either. Drop for Schebler? I am ok on speed.

    Fuck Thor just left the game immediately after throwing a pitch…grabbed by his armpit, looks like a DL stint is coming but glad he didn’t grab the arm.

          @JeF WiTh 1 F: i love how they seem to not really have doctors over there. hundreds of millions at stake and they just play him since he said he “feels fine”. neat. these guys all think they are hockey/football players and can just “play through it”.

    Do you think it’s time to drop Peraza-I have four other players that can generate steals and better AVG. Also a few steal opportunities on the the wire. Thank you

    So I needed steals or homers today and since Rendon has been garbage I figured to swap out for the hot schmotato in Hernan Perez. Needless to say, I should’ve just kept Rendon.

    Everyone should thank me cause apparently Rendon didn’t want to play for me and once I drop him the first game he has leads to his first homer. Thanks Rendon!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Ha

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Grey: This swap probably lost me the week. I am OK with it cause I have a feeling he just blew his whole load and now when I go to get him back on Tuesday, cause the people in my league are overly loyal to the players they drafted, he will pepper me next week with the 1/4s.

        If I end up getting him back, I’m totally going to own him out of spite.

    GREY YO bro… how was your weekend?

    My favorite comment from you was when you called out that dude who was crying about zimmer… he definitely keeps receipts lol!

    I think maybe you should refund him a Zimmerman… Zim Zim Zimmerman Zimmer Zimmer man! (To the tune of row your boat)

    Anyway I’m loving my lineup this year and was wondering if i could get ur help finding my perfect match for my last utility spot.

    C: HEDGES
    1b) Ramirez
    2b) turner
    Ss) story
    3b) lamb
    Of)Harper, cruz, Stanton
    Ut) benintendi
    Ut)?
    Currently roster piscotty and Peraza for that spot and have Dahl on IR who I think is perfect for it. Since I think I’m stacked on power and could use some speed

    Anyway I’m sick of getting pissed on by piscotty and pooped on by Peraza… so next week should I start

    Should I
    1) go for gomez
    2) dentist Delino who steals toothbrushes
    3) ring my bell bellinger I’m a sucker for upside
    4) continue to get pisscotyd or poorazad

    Thanks man btw I’m screen shotting this in case you are wrong.

    Do I need to make a major trade for a pitcher? What do you recommend doing with this team? Thanks!

    10 team keeper, 6×6 roto – OBP, SLG, HR, RBI, R, SB and QS, IP, K, S, ERA, WHIP

    200 GS limit. I’m currently 17/20 in QS and am currently 1st in ERA and WHIP…most other teams have at least 29 GS already…the teams with the best pitching have started 32+ games and have <50% QS rates, which have blown up their ERA/WHIP.

    I'm 10th (last) in SLG and RBI, I'm 9th in HR, I'm 8th in R and SB.

    In the past, bats are worth more than pitching in my league as the season goes on. On paper my bats are elite, but in reality, they haven't been. On paper, my pitching is mediocre at best, but in reality, I've been killing it.

    1B: Reynolds

    Well, two starts in a row against righties, do I run the risk of starting DeShields in a weekly lineup league, or do I run out somebody else?
    Other options I have are Franco, Schoop, Souza, and Mazara (who’s just a piece of shizz lately.)
    Also, would you consider dropping Mazara at this point for, say, a SChebler?
