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

By the dawn’s early light, why are you unhealthy again, Jose Reyes?!  Tough week for MIs.  Rollins must be contagious.  It’s the Middle Infieluenza Outbreak of Twenty-Ten.  This is like in 1918 when Skeeter McGillicuddy sneezed and the Brooklyn Robins entire team was in the hospital for two weeks with the Robins forcing a team of jailbirds and hooligans onto the field in the heart of the pennant race.  Or maybe that was a movie pitch I overheard in a Hollywood Starbucks.  Neverthehoo!  Right now, Reyes doesn’t sound too bad with only a stiff back and not an issue with his oblique, the mystery ailment that sidelines players and no one has any idea where in the body it is.  Reyes said he could’ve even played last night.  Excellent, now keep him away from any Met doctors that treated Beltran’s day-to-day thing last year that knocked him out for over a year.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Jimmy Rollins – 0-for-4 as he hits third for the 2nd straight game.  Yeah, it didn’t work for Reyes either.  Rollins is now batting .270 after returning from the DL with a .341 average.  Granted, that was only through 11 games, but they’re my small sample sizes and I’ll put them wherever I want.

Roy Halladay – 8 IP, 4 ER, 13 Hits, 0 Walks, 10 Ks and 119 pitches.  The 13 hits were a career high, the 119 pitches were not.  Not even his high in his last ten starts.  He’s a gingie horse… Nay (pun point)… He’s a gingie robot.  A gingie robot that wouldn’t mind some run support.

Joey Votto – 1-for-4 with his 18th homer.  He eats gingie robots for breakfast.

Jay Bruce – Bruuuuuuuuuuuce!  Where the heckfire you been?  Bruce hit his 10th homer yesterday as he bats .281 on the year.  I’d actually take five more homers and a .265 average.  Cust kayin’.

Tom Gorzelanny – 5 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks.  It was vs. the Pirates so take it with a grain of NaCl.  But he now has an ERA of 3.14 and more Ks than innings.  I wouldn’t even be pointing him out if his next start vs. the Diamondhacks wasn’t favorable.  Mmm… deep flyer.

Wandy Rodriguez – 7 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks.  The Wandwagon rides again with two straight quality starts.  If he falters against the Pirates in his next start, I may jump out my window.  Sure, I’m on the first floor, but it’s about the gesture.

Chris Johnson – 4-for-4 and now has two 4 hit games.  Tell me more, tell me more, can hit the ball far? Was that Grease, random italicized voice?  Stop judging me! The two four hit games surround a 1-for-12 stretch.  Definitely worth a flyer in NL-Only leagues, but I wouldn’t go crazy with him yet in mixed leagues.

Barry Enright – 5 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks.  Barry had pinpoint control in the minors, but gave 4 free passes in yesterday’s game.  But that might’ve just been nerves.  But II:  The Return of But, he might only be up for one start anyway.  But III:  But Lives, Willis may not stay in the rotation, which would give Barry more starts.  But IV:  But vs. However, even if Barry sticks in the rotation, he needs to prove himself in the majors before I’d add him.

Aaron Heilman – 1 IP, 0 ER as the blind man picked up the saw and said, “Hey, I got a save!”

Chris Snyder – 3-for-4 but gave up 5 Cardinal steals.  I wonder if the Cards players own Montero in fantasy and this was their subtle hint to Hinch.

Krispie Young – 1-for-4 with his 14th Krispie fly.

Jonathan Sanchez – 5 IP, 4 ER, 8 baserunners (only 2 Walks), 4 Ks.  Filthy Sanchez just gave up two poorly timed homers.  Sure, I’m making excuses, but I own him everywhere.  Gotta stay positive, Mike Skinner.

Erik Bedard – Could return to the M’s rotation on Tuesday.  He just has to get through one final rehab start healthy.  Vegas isn’t taking bets, but I’d put his return next week at 4 to 1.

Felix Hernandez – 9 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 11 Ks.  It’s so sexy when he does that thing with the Ks and the no runs.

Michael Saunders – 2-for-4 with 2 homers.  He’s death against lefties, which is not the same as murdering lefties.  At .217 on the year, he’s nothing but an AL-Only OF at this point.

Milton Bradley – 2-for-5 with his 2nd homer in his last 4 games.  Sure, he’s a head case, but he has 8 homers and 6 steals on the year in less than 200 ABs.  He should be owned in more than 3% of ESPN leagues.

Bengie Molina – With apologies to Alfred, the fattest, slowest Molina was sent from the Giants to the Rangers.  The Rangers add Molina to their organizational catching depth of Max Ramirez, Teagarden, Treanor and Saltalamacchia as they continue to follow the “catching wins championships” credo that has never worked for anyone.  Molina moves into a much better lineup and ballpark, which should help his numbers.  He’s a 15 homer, .260 hitter.  On the basepaths and the buffet line, he’s a station-to-station guy.

Buster Posey – With Molina moving to Texas, Posey gets a nod of approval and every day catching duties, which may not necessarily help his hitting since he now has a much harder position to play.

Matt LaPorta – 1-for-2 with his 2nd homer in the last two games.  You know the drill.  When guys are hitting, you what?  *taps finger, scratches head, whistles*  You own them!  C’mon, that was an easy one.

Chris Perez – Got the save since Wood pitched in the three prior games.  Though if you saw the box score and thought Wood was gone, it’s understandable.

Matt Garza – 7 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks vs. the Sawx.  Sonavabench!  Why can’t he pitch well vs. bad teams and crappy vs. good ones?  Is that too much to ask?

Vladimir Guerrero – 4-for-4, 5 RBIs, 2 homers.  Must’ve been nice to not only homer twice off the Angels, but to hit one off of the impostor, Francisco Rodriguez.  If Vlad stays healthy, he can keep his name in the MVP conversation.  That “if” isn’t exactly Rhode Island-sized.

Zack Greinke – 8 IP, 6 ER, 10 baserunners, 3 Ks.  He flew through 7 innings only to give up 5 runs in the 8th as he tried to blow his own win and Greinke himself.

Jair Jurrjens – 5 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks.  Meesa tinks Jar-Jar looked sharp in his return.  He even struck out some hitters in this game.  If you’ve forgotten, Jurrjens’ bugaboo is he doesn’t K people.  A healthy Jar-Jar should absolutely be owned in your league.

Adam Jones – 3-for-5 with his 13th homer while hitting .274 and chipping in 3 steals.  You know what’s fascinating to me (which means it’ll be a yawnfest for you), if Jones hit .274 all year while spreading his 13 homers out over the first three months, he would be owned everywhere and people would harbor no ill will towards him.  This is why you draft guys you trust and let them play.   On the other hand, Markakis is suckakis.

Ty Wigginton – Hit his 14th homer.  After the game, Casey McGehee called him to say, “Nice hit, Dad!”

Matt Kemp – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 13th homer.  Probably a day late on that buy low Kemp trade offer.

Rafael Furcal – 4-for-5, 3 Runs, 2 RBIs and his third homer.  Hitting around .500 in the last week with 4 steals.

Clayton Richard – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 10 Ks with a 2.74 ERA on the year.  Aren’t you glad you loaded your team with hodgepadres?  I am.

Adrian Gonzalez – Didn’t play because of shoulder soreness as the Padres exploded for 13 runs.  Ticker tease!

Dustin Pedroia – Since he was unable to put any weight on his foot, he took grounders while on his knees.  He’s obviously been watching the instructional video, Dorf on Baseball.

Brandon Inge – 0-for-3, but after the game he was all smiles.  When asked why, he said he loves having books read to him with his adopted brother.

    Grey, you and pianow need to merge into one person. You’d be the funny side (of course), then you and pianow both can give us all truly great fantasy advice.

    Points from your post:
    Damn you Garza.
    Thanks for leaving out Francis (joke).
    And yes, someone was trying to buy Kemp off of me, but I said, “NO SIR, YOU MAY NOT HAVE A MAN WHO IS IN A SLUMP FOR CHEAP!”

    Love your recaps, sleep well Grey.

    PS: I’m trying to swindle Zimmerman off of an owner, think Zimmerman/Correia for Haren/Bautista/(place dog feces here) would work? I’m sure you’d want the Zimmerman side (since Correia and Bautista are jokes and you don’t like Haren), but how high up on the dog feces chain should I go?

    Hey Grey, thanks for your plentiful crossed digits for Garza, our boy looked pretty decently on point all night and came awfully close to getting out of there with only 1 run earned.

    Shifting gears: Hamilton for Verlander?

    Wow, that’s a hell of a reference there with Mike Skinner. I’m impressed.

    always rather take a pitcher with a grain of NaCl than with a swig of ALE.

  6. Howdy Grey. I need some help at 2B/3B in a 20-team roto league … I dropped Brian Roberts a while back, traded Aviles when Rollins came back, and just lost Freese for the next couple of weeks. So I’m left with Sean Rodriguez and Jose Lopez manning those two positions. Not a great prospect.

    So I’m looking to trade for some help: pitching is also very thin in this league and I can spare either Gorzelanny or Bumgarner with Volquez and Beckett coming back soonish. I know neither has great value but I was thinking of targeting a Felipe Lopez-level player for one of them. Does that sound reasonable? Any chance I could aim higher? Who would you trade away?

    Also, speaking of Bumgarner: are you starting him @COL in such a deep league?

    Just traded Greinke for Reyes….woke up this am to see Greinke did OK, was chuckling about my great trade, only to see your headline….CRAP! Get well soon Jose. You bastard! Luckily it doesn’t go through. til Saturday

    Who do you prefer to replace Heyward; Pagan, Cody Ross or Delmon Young?

    Thanks dude!

  11. Jangles says:

    plus-throw Coco into that question please. I need general production, but Runs/SB would really help.

    Lastly, I think Pavano is bordering on your copyright infringement on that stash. Sue his ass!

  12. Nice work, sir. (And you too, Random Italicized Voice. You never get enough credit.)

    I hate when secret day-games mess with your lineup — I missed out on the Krispie fly! G-dammit!

    But Kinsler has sprung to life, and KJ has disappeared down a KJ-Hole, so my Dunn for Kinsler trade isn’t looking so bad right now. And F-Her’s finally making me not regret drafting him in the 3rd over Votto.

    Wonder how the millions who picked up Brandon Morrow felt about his blah start against CLE. 8Ks was good, but he’d been hyped up the wazoo. Somehow I don’t see him finishing this year much under his current 4.50 ERA. Next year, though, or better yet, 2012: the 2012 Jays will have a kick-ass rotation of Morrow, Romero, Cecil and Drabek. Onward ho!

  13. Jackie says:
    (link)

    Thoughts on Stanton? Does he mash in the second half? Does he mash next year? I am in a keeper league, but thinking of trading him to help my team contend this year. Thoughts?

  14. William says:
    (link)

    @Grey – Is Sean Rodriguez playing everyday, and is he worth a flier with Kelly Johnson going back to his ’09 self?

  15. Frank Rizzo says:
    (link)

    So what is the news on Wandy anyway? Did he finally find an arm slot to his liking? Are the K’s coming back? He’s sitting on the wire in my 10 team and everyone’s treating him like leprosy. I definitely have the room to invite him aboard but I’m scared…..so, so scared.

    If Reyes is hurt I will jump out the window here too. Sure, it’s 1st floor, but concrete awaits me and I would tie my hands behind my back for the jump.

  16. Matty D says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey, which 2 of these SPs would you drop?

    Peavy, Morrow, Bumgarner, Garza, Jurrjens, Billingsley.

    Also, Callaspo or Beckham?

    Thanks a lot.

  17. Long Bong Hitters says:

    Quick Question @EVERYONE plus Grey

    Which side of this deal do you like better?

    Josh Hamilton and Mark Reynolds

    or

    Miguel Cabrera and Josh Willingham

    What do you guys think? I think its even stephen, but when you consider the likelihood of Hamilton getting injured or blowing coke again make me like the Miggy side better…..

  18. ThePoonTycoon says:
    (link)

    @Long Bong Hitters: i’d lean cabrera side. only thing that could cause hesitation would be reynolds 3B eligibility.

  19. ThePoonTycoon says:
    (link)

    i might have the opportunity to trade for prince or j-upton. position eligibility aside, who has the bigger 2nd half? j-up has actually been pretty solid and consistent in may and june, his awful april is dragging down his overall numbers though.

  20. Child Please says:
    (link)

    12-team H2H 6×6 (OBP, QS)

    Ev-cab or Ian desmond??

  21. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    @ThePoonTycoon: I’m going to give you my advice for once…and the worst part, is it’s not going to help you one bit. Obviously, Upton gets you more than HRs/RBI with his speed. But I’m thinking Prince will get you a few more bombs and a few more ribbies. It would depend on what you need more (1B? OF? Steals? Bombs?). I would lean Prince, but that’s just because I’m hoping he EXPLODES over the next few months – I did that Doc/Cruz for Prince/Holliday deal yesterday.

  22. Deeeeeez Nuts says:

    I saw that the slumping Rays scored nine last night but lost my erection immediately after learning that my Crawford, Longoria and Pena went 3/14 with 2 runs and 1 RBI.

    Jurrjens or Volquez? I’m a little concerned that Jurrjens lack of K’s will drag me down as we have an IP limit. On the other hand, Volquez had WHIP concerns even before the injury.

  23. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    @Poon: now it’s my turn for a question. After doing that trade yesterday, I’m now down an arm and I have a ton of OFers (dropped Glaus for Pacman last night, too). Offered BJ for Romero last night and he countered with Rasmus, what do you think? Here’s my total roster:

    Santana, V-Mart-DL, Fielder, Weeks, Utley-DL, Wright, Longoria, Andrus, Kemp, CarGo, Krispie, Holliday, BJ, Rasmus, Pacman

    Ubaldo, JJ, Weaver, Verlander, Floyd, Lewis, Aardsma, K-Rod, Capps, Axford

    Rasmus for Romero good for me?

  24. Time Theft Bandit says:
    (link)

    Yunel Escobar is killing me….

    so for the long term:

    Yunel, Felipe Lopez, Cliff Pennington, Wilson Valdez, Sexy Alexei, Ever Cab?

    VERY slim-pickens

  25. Billy says:
    (link)

    Happy Canada day fellow Canadians!!!

    Am i crazy for not jumping all over this deal… I have Napoil as my starting Catcher… 14 team h2h

    I Give Carlos Santana, Tommy Hunter

    I get Matt Kemp and Buster Posey

    thanks!!!

  26. ThePoonTycoon says:
    (link)

    @Wilsonian: i would think that’s not a bad deal. rasmus does K a lot and still struggles against lefties, so he probably won’t completely explode. i’d expect more of the same, maybe a slight regression in the HR dept. romero is starting to look kinda like a stud, only concern is his division and whether the jays end up limiting his innings in sept. if you are comfortable with romero, i wouldn’t sweat rasmus since he’s your #4 OF at best.

  27. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    @ThePoonTycoon: that’s kind of what I was thinking. Romero is looking like a stud, and not that Rasmus isn’t also looking like a stud, but in my OF, it’s not going to kill me to lose him. I offered him Rasmus for Latos, anyway, and he countered with Romero, who is his 3rd best pitcher (behind Latos and Lincecum). Thanks for the advice, clicking accept now…

    Ha! about Texas and their catchers. I was just saying that last night.

  30. Wah says:

  33. danimal35 says:

    @Wah: I would take Fielder over Youk in almost any format (except AL-only)

  34. ThE sHiT says:
    (link)

    @ Grey: Good morning dude. Do u c LaPorta as more of a power contributor ala Stanton? What kinda 2nd half line do u project if he keeps it up? Thx!

  35. ThE sHiT says:
    (link)

    @Wah: Fielder, hes gna tear it up. Plus, Youk’s lineup is sorta depleted rt now…

  36. @Fletch: Eh, I don’t know. To date, the D-Backs have scored 3 fewer runs than the Phillies on the year (Phils are #6 in the NL in runs scored, D-Backs are #7), and that was with Utley and Polanco in the lineup. I know they’ll come back, but here’s no guarantee Philly is a better lineup than Arizona from here forward.

    Now, I haven’t checked but I think Philly is a slightly better park than Arizona, but they are both hitter’s parks and HR-friendly. I’d rather see Haren go somewhere (in the NL) that would eat a few more of those long flyballs for outs.

  37. papasmurf says:

    Upon taking Francisco Rodriguez deep, Vlad remarks to teammate that KROD’s stuff has really gone downhill since the last time he saw him.

    It’s like when the Rickey saw John Olerud and didn’t recognize that Olerud was his teammate the year before. Rickey says to Olerud that he’ll be damned cuz last year he had a guy on his team that wore a helmet on the field too. Olerud sez, “Yeah that was me.”

    Man, I remember when people were trying to convince me Andruw Jones would be better than Adam Jones. Who’s speaking Papiamento now?

  41. @Mark Geoffriau: Just found the park factors page…and actually, Philly’s been a better HR park than Arizona so far this year. Philly is #5, Arizona #7. It’s hard to say that Philly’s bullpen is that much better than Arizona’s, either.

    If he went to Philly, I wouldn’t be pissed like I was when Peavy when to the White Sox last year, but it looks like a lateral move in fantasy terms.

  42. TheEvilEmpire says:

    @Grey: For the rest of the season, which 4 would you want?

    Seth Smith, Tyler Colvin, Luke Scott, Gaby Sanchez, Michael Stanton, Jonny Gomes, Angel Pagan

  43. Mike D. says:
    (link)

    @Grey:

    Better CI for rest of season, AL Only 5×5 – LaPorta or Viciendo?

    And how much do you like Bengie Molina in TEX? More than Weiters?

    Thanks.

    @Grey: Which mid-range pitcher would you project the best 2nd half for? Can you rank them? Thanks, love the site.

    Kuroda, Hiroki
    Pavano, Carl

    Rodriguez, Wandy

    @Jason: Can try it, depends how highly the Zimmerman owner rates Haren.

    @EmporersMonkey: Thanks!

    @penpen: It’s fair, depends on needs.

    @Joe: Hehe

    @Carlos Z has slurpees: Ha

    @Enrique: I’m not starting Bumgarner. Try and trade Volquez or Beckett for Andrus. If not try Gorzelanny or Bumgarner for Lopez.

    @AL KOHOLIC: Ouch

    @Terrence Mann: Ha!

    @Jangles: Young

    @Baron Von Vulturewins: Thanks! Thanks!

    @Jackie: Depends what you’re getting for him. Though he should be a great one for many years.

    @William: I’d want Johnson.

    @Frank Rizzo: Wow, much better gesture.

    @Matty D: Morrow, Bumgarner… Beckham

    @ThePoonTycoon: Prince

    @Child Please: EverCab

    @Deeeeeez Nuts: Ha… Volquez.

    @Time Theft Bandit: Lopez

    @Billy: I’d want Kemp.

    @Donnie Baseball: Thanks!

    @Wah: I’d prefer Fielder.

    @keith: Huff

    @Howard: Morning! Bartlett…

    @Fletch: Haren is always worse in the 2nd half.

    @ThE sHiT: I’d go with Stanton.

    @papasmurf: Ha!

    @brad: Papiamento, nice.

    @TheEvilEmpire: Colvin, Gaby, Gomes and Stanton.

    @Mike D.: LaPorta… No

  52. Fletch says:
    (link)

    @ThE sHiT: Crazy as it may sound, I feel Vlad will have a better shot at staying healthier than Hamilton the rest of the way playing DH. Hamilton always misses a bunch of time every year. Vlad is also batting ahead of Hamilton clearing the bases before Hamilton even steps up to the plate.

    My quest to obtain Halladay ended abruptly last night. Started with Grandy/Fuentes with suggestions of other combos (Grandy+Lilly, etc)… Rejected without comment.

    Was that a dog feces offer?
    Think I’ll be more successful with the same offer for Verlander?

  55. @Fletch: I’m not a Haren hater, and I don’t buy into the idea that Haren can’t pitch in the second half (from what I can tell, it’s been mostly bad luck out of his control). But the numbers just don’t support the Phillies being that much better of a situation than Arizona. They nearly identical in run scoring up to this point, except that Philly just LOST one of their most important hitters, and the park factors are close enough to be negligible over one half of a season. It wouldn’t be a terrible move, but it wouldn’t be one I’d get excited about either.

    Got Strasburg and trying to shop him around for an outfielder or 3B. WAs wondering if anyone was doing the same and what kind of value you have been getting back. Thanks!

  57. Fletch says:
    (link)

    @ThE sHiT: I should probably mention there’s a slight bias as I’m a very happy Vlad owner. It’s very close between Vlad and Hamilton this year. You might get Vlad a bit cheaper than Hamilton though, which surely plays a part. Convince the Vlad owner that he will breakdown in the 2nd half and then deal Kent Tukulvie for him.

    Another who to drop to Jurrjens question.. 10-teamer, I’d need to drop Ian Kennedy or Medlen, or I could drop a crap closer like Dotel or Heilman. I have 4 closers currently. What would Grey do? thanks

    Hey Grey, would you drop VMart for Adam Pacman Jones – I have Santana and Napoli to rotate at catcher…also using Branyan/Napoli at 1st…was using Vmart at 1st….could use Jones at Util for upgrade? Worth the risk?

    I noticed you missed me up above, I was comment #18. I really value your thoughts on this trade as it will determine a lot this season.

    @Grey: FYI…According to Jim Duquette of Sirius XM Radio and MLB Network, Cliff Lee told people around the club that Tuesday may have been his last start as a Mariner.

    @Grey: Is Cano worth Pacman/Bills or Pacman/Garza? 2 much?

    @Grey: Koo thx Grey. I sent out Pacman/Bills 4 Kemp, Holliday n Cano. Lets c if either of the 3 owners bite. The Cano owner also has Kinsler, but his injuries scare me, and I feel he will try to give me Kinsler instead of Cano.

    @ThE sHiT: Cool…

    @big o: Yeah, he’s crazy hot right now.

    @ThE sHiT: i would hold cruz if possible over pacman and boesch. however, i doubt you’d be able to get any of those guys you are targeting without cruz involved somewhere. and you’d probably need him to have a good healthy hot few weeks to pull it off then.

    @Grey: Is LaPorta worth picking up if it means dropping Garrett Jones or Johnny Gomes? Though I do like seeing those two names next to each other on my rosters…

    Ok…what to do with LaPorta?? Sell/Hold? I know value is in the eye of beholder but where’s the bottom in return to shoot for if selling?

    @peter: Lose Gomes for him.

    @danimal35: I can’t imagine anyone is buying him off you. Maybe get a Brain Freeze.

    Hey Grey,

    Utley owner in my keeper league looking to move him as he cant keep him at the end of the season anyway.

    I offered him MMD and Bucholz. too much? utley would cost me $29-34 depending on 1 or 2 yr contract. I already have Lee and Lester as my two big pitcher keepers.

    Thanks,

    Spartacus

    @Spartacus: Not sure why you would trade for Utley this year.
