I’m going to break this down to you nice and simple like Minnie Pearl would’ve liked it.  Guys that bust and you don’t want next year, you should be rooting for in the 2nd half.  That’s guys that bust, not guys with a bust.  Please, Billy Butler, stop pretending to lactate by dripping milk on your shirt.  The reason you want them to succeed in August and September, because A) They’re prolly on teams that have checked out and are checking on our fantasy football content (Football RCLs sign up today; smooth transition), so no harm, no foul.  B) You want people to get excited about them next March because of their 2nd half, while you ignore them, because you know they’re not good.  Then the cycle starts again.  They draft players that were good in the 2nd half, those players are not good in the 1st half next year, and they check out again.  Rinse, repeat.  C) There’s no C.  Yesterday, Josh Donaldson (2-for-4, 4 RBIs) hit his 14th and 15th homers, and has four homers this month.  Here’s to him helping all of those tenth place teams move up to ninth and exciting everyone again next year!  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

CC Sabathia – 3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.05.  Random Prediction Alert!  In the playoffs, the Fox announcers are going to make a huge deal out of the fact that Sabathia isn’t in the rotation and is this great weapon in the bullpen, because playoff announcers literally prepare six minutes before the game by watching video content on Fox Sports dot com.

Robbie Ray – Threw off the bump yesterday.  Then a man, rubbing his gums, walked in, screaming, “Get off my bump!”

Zack Godley – 6 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.94.  Okay, so Godley’s human.  It was a tough matchup.  I’d continue to roll with him.

Jake Lamb – 2-for-4, 5 RBIs and his 24th and 25th homers.  Lamb, da duh duh, da duh duh, make noise b-boys!

Clayton Kershaw – Threw from flat ground.  Kyrie Irving said, “I told you!”

Kenta Maeda – 5 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.69.  I regret not keeping Maeda on my RCL team all year, but that whole ‘Dodgers have 17 starters and are working the DL like it’s a Kardashian working a black man,’ I just couldn’t hold.

Justin Turner – 2-for-4 and his 14th and 15th homers, and four homers in three games.  He’s doing a flipsy-doodle (totally a saying) on his 1st half.  Now he’s hitting for power, and not average.

Reynaldo Lopez – Will be called up to start on Friday for the Alt-Right Sox.  Prospector Ralph said, “He can touch 100 on the gun, and he’s loved in some circles, but I don’t see it.  Lopez looks like a bullpen guy to me.  Maybe Grey might like him because Grey is stupid.”  Hey, c’mon!  For what it’s Werth, Lopez didn’t make Ralph’s top 200 fantasy baseball prospects.  I see the 10+ K/9 and 100 MPH fastball and get a little weak in the knees, but I also see a roofie and a 1.55 WHIP coming.

Avisail Garcia – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 1 RBI and his 5th steal, as he was activated from the DL.  He came back after one rehab game at Charlotte, North Carolina.  The prudish bordering town to Samantha, North Carolina.

Kevan Smith – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 3rd homer.  Meh, I checked out on Kevan Smith when he cast Alanis Morrissette as God.  The future is female, God is female, my dog wants to transition to a female, etc.  It’s all good, I don’t care.  But Alanis, specifically, can’t act and she sings to Dave Coulier.  No thanks.

Dallas Keuchel – 4 IP, 8 ER, ERA up to 2.87.  5, 4, 3 (counts to self)…And he’s back on the DL!  Hmm, not yet?  How about now?  Now?

Yulieski Gurriel – 3-for-5 and his 15th homer, and 2nd homer in four games.  If this year is any indication, he seems like the type to get crazy hot for a week at a time, and he’s hitting near-.350 in the last week.  (So, does that mean he’s about to cool off?  Hmm…)

Max Kepler – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 12th and 13th homers.  I told you he was a sleeper!  *slowly backs out of room, slowly backs into room with people who drafted Kepler*  Oh, hey.

Eddie Rosario – 3-for-4, 3 runs and his 13th and 14th homers, and his 3rd homer in the last three games, and, well, anyone actually picking this guy up?  If I had my druthers, and knew what druthers were, I’d go with Kepler of these two two-homer guys.

Brian Dozier – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 5 RBIs and his 21st homer.  Yesterday, the Twins were having an Extrava-Garza!

Jason Vargas – 4 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA to 3.40.  The Cards were having an ex-tra-Vargas!  No?  Too much?

Randal Grichuk – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 14th homer, as he hit ninth.  Also, in this game, Jedd Gyorko (1-for-2, 2 runs, 3 RBIs) hit his 15th homer, and Yadier Molina (2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs) hit his 13th homer.  This has me curious about something.  One second, going to do research.  And back!  Surprised to report, the Cards’ offense isn’t good for homers or in general.

Giancarlo Stanton – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 38th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games, and 3rd in four games.  This is also the 5th time this year he’s hit multiple home runs in a week while I sat in his garbage can waiting for him to get home.

Derek Dietrich – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 7th homer, and 2nd homer this week, and hitting .350 in that time.  If you like your diet rich of schmotatoes, I could see adding him.

Vance Worley – 6 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 4.82.  Now two solid starts in back-to-back games, but I can’t recommend giving Vance a Worley.

Brian Goodwin – 3-for-5, 2 runs and continues to hit and leadoff.  I thought Michael Taylor was due back any day now, but that was a terrible Annie Potts TV show, and Goodwin is hitting.

Johan Camargo – Hyperextended his knee and needed to be helped off the field.  He injured it how?  Trotting out to the field.  Sounds like a bad insurance claim on a racehorse.  The Braves’ other shortstop, Dansby, will be recalled, and hopefully recalls how to hit.

Jose Pirela – 4-for-4, 3 runs, hitting .299.  Yesterday, I said could be a schmotato.  Today, I’m saying dur, grab him.

Yangervis Solarte – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 12th homer, and 2nd homer in the last week, and… Okay, so the Padres are facing the Reds pitching.  Fair enough.

Austin Hedges – 2-for-4 and his 15th homer.  Continued from above blurb.  Dot dot dot.  And they’re in Cincy!

Michael Brantley – Left yesterday’s game with an ankle sprain after falling to the ground.  Hey, you got more from him than anyone had any right to.

Corey Kluber – 9 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.65, and nearly lost the game to Nazi-in-hiding, German Marquez – 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.88.  Early on, the Indians should’ve been ashamed of themselves for not providing Kluber with any support.  I’d say the Indians should’ve been red-faced, but I might get Social Justice Warriors sending me letters.  Kluber’s only mistake was allowing Chazz Noir’s 26th homer.  You know all Klubers have a soft spot for the Noir, this was just unfair!  Then, in the ninth inning, Yan Gomes hit his 7th homer, because Yan Can Walk Off!

Felix Hernandez – Diagnosed with right shoulder bursitis, and will be out for at least a month, but I’d guess he’ll miss the rest of the season since this same injury knocked him out for six weeks earlier in the year.  If you were hoping for something from F-Her, you’re screwed, which makes you ‘her.’

Khris Davis – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 30th homer, hitting .242.  Davis gets no love from anyone.  Seriously, it’s like fantasy baseballers’ (<–my mom’s term!) eyes glaze over as soon as a hitter’s average dips below .245.

Ryon Healy – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 21st homer.  This guy isn’t old enough, or with a long enough track record yet for this, but he constantly gives me a DLzebub on my shoulder whispering evil thoughts into my ear, when he’s pulled late in a game.

Julio Teheran – 5 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 5.25.  In the offseason, this is gonna be a guy I’m looking at hard for a potential bounce back.

Freddie Freeman – 1-for-4 and his 21st homer, and 2nd homer in the last three games.  Maybe the injury to his wrist is hist, because his fantasy value is no longer heading up the river with a boat and no paddle, and he’s handing out beat downs.

Odubel Herrera – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and a slam (12) and double legs (6, 7).  Every time you try to count ODB out, he puts out a posthumous album.

Parker Bridwell – 7 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.00.  You know the drill –> Stream-o-Nator.

Keynan Middleton – 1 IP, 1 ER and his 1st save.  Whoa, Prince William’s wife got a save?  And not for the Royals?  This might be the end of Bud Norris’ days of closing, but Middleton is 100% poop emoji, and I didn’t pick him up.  I did grab Cam Bedrosian, but, honestly, he’s not much better.

Jose Quintana – 6 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.42 overall, and 4.20 ERA on Chicago, which is the Dee-Oh-Double-Gee ERA.  This game was vs. the Giants, which brings me to how do you get hit by the Giants?  How is it even possible?  I will wait for my answer.

Felipe Rivero – 1 IP, 0 ER, and his 10th save, ERA at 1.25.  Good to see him get right back on the horse, which is almost what one says to a previously impotent man at a brothel.

Michael Conforto – 1-for-2, 2 runs and his 23rd homer, hitting .293, OBP .397.  Here’s my concern, he’s Nomar Mazara.  A much better real life player than fantasy.  With so little speed, Conforto has to hit .280+ with 25+ homers.  I don’t think my concern is completely valid, so I’m not 100% worried, but it’s there.

Travis d’Arnaud – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .242.  Travis d’Arnaud should anagram to ‘Damn, the torpedo to my career.’

Yoenis Cespedes – 1-for-4 and his 12th homer, hitting .274.  You know the year hasn’t been kind when you’ve had more Razzball health updates than home run updates.  Speaking of which, you know Scott Boras puts in free agents’ dossiers how many positive Razzball mentions the player got the previous year.  “Tommy Pham had 23 Razzball mentions.  Arbitration can eat my D, we want a contract!”

Robinson Chirinos – 2-for-3, and his 13th homer, hitting .217.  Uh oh Chirinos!

Joey Gallo – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 31st homer, and 20th homer in five games, or something close to that.  For the uninitiated, a Three True Outcome (TTO) player is one that walks, Ks or homers.  That’s it.  A famous example of this is Adam Dunn aka The Big Donkey.  Joey Gallo is Donkey Dong Jr.

Adrian Beltre – 1-for-3 and his 11th homer, and his 2nd in as many games, hitting .292.  From his home, reclining on his barcalounger, umpire Joe West overruled the home run call.

Andrew Cashner – Scratched from his start due to a stiff neck.  That’s what happens when you get a Viagra stuck in your throat.

Dustin Pedroia – 0-for-4, 2 run as he was activated from the DL.  He DH’d, Eduardo Nunez (3-for-5) hit leadoff and played 2B, and Hanley said, “Do they have cushions for the bench?  My Chiro says pine is bad for the lumbar.  That’s short for chiropractor, by the way, not Ichiro.”

Austin Pruitt – 6 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.14.  Solid game, but he should’ve never went for the Sale on matchups (8 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 13 Ks, ERA at 2.57).

Alex Cobb – Hit the DL with turf toe.  He knew there was a problem when a group of eight-year-olds and their grandparents were lining to play mini putt-putt on his toe.

    Catcher question (yay), I just can’t even keep going with Lucroy. I drafted him, dropped him for Ramos, snagged him again when he went to Colorado, and he just sucks. So…
    Do I drop him for (do your best to suppress the gag reflex):
    Hedges, James McCann, your choice of Braves part-time catcher, Rupp, Piña, or just hope the rest of my team can compensate.

    Grey!!!!!

    Write-up par excellence!!!!

    a. Mission just arrived (I heard THE airplane fly over). Some refugees in a different location threw away their food ration into the street to demonstrate – a. how little they like the ration; b. how stupid they are; c. that they want a change; d. that they can do without it. So the mission has come to see if the same response doesn’t spread in our location. It’s sad when a donor gives you something, however small, from $$$ that is super scarce and dwindling fast and then you go and throw it away as a beneficiary of said donation. Not good.

    b. On a baseball note, did well in one league – Beltre, Hedges, ODB, Dozier and Cutch22 – and not so well in another – Hedges but then offset by the Holland implosion (thank you for not mentioning his implosion and the grand salami he allowed to lose it!). Need rolaids relief for one and am happy in the other. Happy, rolaids, happy, rolaids! Yay! Happy rolaids day to me.

    c. John Rambo Quote of the day for August 9

    [Rambo treats his own wound like he did in Rambo I, First Blood.]

    [A massive manhunt is launched by Colonel Zaysen to find Rambo. Ground troops and helicopters are redeployed.]

    [Rambo uses stealth and frees Colonel Trautman and everyone else imprisoned in the Russian prison.]

    Rambo: ‘Move! Move! Come on!’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Can you fly that thing?’

    Rambo: ‘Let’s find out. Let’s go! Hurry! Get on board!’

    Colonel Zaysen: ‘[Speaking foreign language]’

    Rambo: ‘Hold on!’

    Colonel Zaysen: ‘[Speaking foreign language]’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Over there! There!

    Rambo: ‘Hold on!’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Get them!’

    [As Rambo had to swerve to avoid a missile, one liberated Afghan falls out of the helicopter, holding on to the base of the helicopter for dear life.]

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Take my hand!’

    [Same liberated Afghan falls to his death below.]

    [Rambo shoots up the gun tower and the two gun operators.]

    [Rambo’s helicopter is hit.]

    Rambo: ‘We’re going down! Hold on!’

    Passengers: ‘[Screaming]’

    [Rambo lands the helicopter.]

    Rambo: ‘Get out of here! It’s going to blow!

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Take what you can, John!’

    Rambo: ‘Come on!

    Leader of liberated Afghans: ‘We got to get to the border. We’ll stay here. We know where to go.’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Which direction, John?’

    Rambo: ‘Northeast.’

    [After 5 minutes of marching uphill…]

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Hold it, John. I got to rest a minute. How’s the wound?’

    Rambo: ‘You taught us to ignore pain, didn’t you?’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Is it working?’

    Rambo: ‘Not really. Don’t take it personally.’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Thanks’, [with a wry grin on his face].

    Rambo: ‘You go on ahead and see if you can find some cover.’

    Russian helicopter operator just before being killed: ‘No!’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘John! John! That was close, John. How are you?’

    Rambo: ‘Well-done.’

    [Scene change, Colonel Trautman and Rambo go underground. Colonel Zaysen sends in his commandos to take Rambo as a prisoner.]

    Colonel Trautman: ‘We don’t want to make it easy for him. Let’s split up. I’m sorry I got you into this.’

    Rambo: ‘No, you’re not.’

    [Rambo takes out a Russian commando, Colonel Zaysen calls out to him.]

    Colonel Zaysen: ‘Spetnaz!

    Rambo: ‘Are you listening?’

    Colonel Zaysen: ‘Who are you?’

    Rambo: ‘Your worst nightmare.’

    Have been waiting to use precisely THIS QUOTE since I started Rambo III. Endlich Ich!!!

    Cheers,

    Fun fact – 22% of the Rangers hits have been homers (just the top nine bats). Gallo obviously leads the pack at 47%

        @Grey: Crazy right. I’m not sure how that stacks up historical. I did a quick calc last night because it felt like every third hit was a home run.

            @Grey: McGwire, Ruth, Bonds, Thome, Stanton, then Kiner. Gallo is currently tied with Ruth…

    h2h league where i’m in some kinda shit from injuries and underperformances from hitters (story/c-sant/franco (gone now)/braun/treat urner), deep benches, these SP (do have 5 closers for 4 max RP slots now, greene/norris both slot at SP if need be)
    carmart/carrasco/paxton/faria/folty/davies (outplaying SON big time for a while now)/quintana/chacin/nova/straily
    thinking of dropping one of nova or chacin for woodruff (near positive value vs MIN today and was good first start). will show likely matchups till our playoffs start:
    nova @ DET (today, -18.7)
    @ MIL -3.1 (good lord what happened to MIL’s offense for those numbers to jibe)
    vs STL
    @ CIN
    @ CUBS
    vs CUBS and maybe a last day of last matchup @ STL , so pretty bad mostly

    chacin @ LAD (-11.2)
    vs WAS (-4)
    @ STL
    vs SF
    vs LAD
    vs STL (so lots at home, where he’s better)
    woodruff vs MIN (-.6)
    vs PIT (-5.9)
    @ SF
    @ LAD
    vs WAS
    @ CUBS
    only 4 moves left this week, 5 per week, and nova/chacin probably get grabbed if dropped, unless maybe if nova gets destroyed today.

    Moose has been a monster but that K/BB (68/18) is bizarre. Doesn’t walk at all but hardly strikes out for a power hitter. Is that sustainable in future? Own him in an OBP keeper so wondering how I should gauge him going forward.

    Stream Waino next start in 16 team H2H, or is he too terrible to trust even in that right now?

    Also Woodruff or Clevinger?

    • bigbear says:
      (link)

      @Swfcdan: His an up/down player. I think it’s sustainable to some extent. But his value obviously takes a hit in OBP leagues.

      Starters in 16 team league are tough to come by. If you need him, stream him and hope for the best. It depends though.

      Clevinger

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Swfcdan: His OBP stinks.

      • Swfcdan says:
        (link)

        @Cram It: Thanks for the advice Sherlock.

        • Cram It says:

          @Swfcdan: No problem Mr. Magoo.

    • b the esq. says:
      (link)

      @Swfcdan: Moose won’t maintain the crazy hot run, but he can remain a legit player. His value is lessened a bit in the OBP by the Ks.

      Waino is bad. Not sure there is a matchup I would want to stream him in.

      Woodruff for me.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Swfcdan: Agree with others, he’s not an OBP player, he gives you power and RBIs, there’s a place for that… Forget Waino…. Clevinger

    Albies or B. Miller?

    Thanks

  10. Jogon says:

    Pick one ROS : Mazarra, Fowler, Healy, Cron, pirela, Hicks or Wong. Other question : what about w.ramos ? Should i drop him to Gets Joseph, Pina, McCann or d’Arnaud ?

    • bigbear says:
      (link)

      @Jogon: Healy. Ramos is the best of the bunch. Not sure what his deal is lately though… Go with the hot hand.

    Hi Grey,

    for my bench spot, thinking of dropping Josh Bell for Odubel Herrera, Max Kepler, Incirate or Reddick?

    Thoughts?

    many thanks!

    • bigbear says:

      @Chris: ODB or Inciarte. I think ODB has a higher upside. But Inciarte has a higher floor.

    And your concern about Conforto is not valid. He will hit .280+/30 HR’s, probably 100/100. Yes please and thank you.

    • Fungazi says:

      @Cram It: Agree, he’s a left-handed Springer. Same numbers prorated over the same AB.

    • No Pun Zone says:
      (link)

      @Cram It:

      My idiotic league vetoed one trade this year. It was early and a big dust up occurred which made owners reluctant to veto any other deals. The deal vetoed was:

      My Rizzo, Conforto and Harrison for his Arenado and Dee. So I am pissed about missing out on Nolan, praying Conforto keeps it up and concerned that my next trade to get speed was for Dee moving K Seager off my crowded CI. Seager seems to have found his stride. Ugh. Man I hate vetoes.

      Keep up your biting commentary. I like the shots!

      The league did approve this trade: Pedroia, Reed and Stanton for Villar and Teheran. I need to be in a new league.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

      Grey says:

      @Cram It: Yeah, hopefully, and I think so too, but no safety net with no speed

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I guess it depends on where you want to rank him relative to your concerns. I never heard you reference a lack of SB’s with guys like Ozuna and JD Martinez when it seemed like they might need a safety net.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          I might’ve with JD before he showed he could hit 40 HRs; Ozuna and Conforto feel similar, true on that… And Ozuna’s never been ranked *that* high b/c lack of steals

            @Grey: I don’t where Conforts will be ranked. He’s a high floor, high ceiling guy to me. I think he can hit 30+ HR’s and win a batting title.

    Do you make this trade:

    From a $ keeper value standpoint it makes sense, but not from s reliability standpoint in my mind. I know Smoak appears real…. but so many years of poor performance makes it really hard to believe for next year

      @bucktail: Depends on what your roster size, league size, etc. are and who would be available in the prospect draft, and where in the first round the pick would be.

      I love me some prospects, so I would lean the pick side.

      • bucktail says:

        @b the esq.: It will be a top 5 pick. Everyone from the 2017 draft is available. Other top guys are Bo Bichette, Tatis Jr., Walker Buehler, Christin Stewart, Luis Robert, Jack Flaherty, Shed Long, Sixto Sanchez, Estevan Florial for example. 10 team league

    Playoffs secured in H2H 12 teamer. Trade deadline has passed. Aiming solely at being at my best in September. Rizzo seemingly now not getting 2B status put a hole in my plans. In a ten cat hitting league where walks and fewer strikeouts can swing the day, here are the best on the wire and my squad:

    WW: Mazara, Avisail, Goodwin, Semien, Pirela. Castillo, Lackey, Chase Anderson. Ziegler, Treinen

    C- Realmuto
    CI – Rizzo, Lamb, Freeman
    MI – Dee, Simmons, Harrison
    OF – (must play 5). Conforto, Marwin, Melky, Dyson, N Williams, Souza – such a weak group
    Util – LoMo
    SP – Kershaw (DL spot) Verlander, Severino, Morton, Cobb, Faria, Wacha, Gausman
    RP – Holland, Viz, Melancon

    1. Williams has been fine but Hoskins, Altherr etc in time shares concerns me down the road. Swap now for a WW guy or wait to see how it shakes out?
    2. With Dyson in platoon mode, I picked up Harrison and moved Marwin to the OF. Stay with this plan or swap Harrison for an OF (Pirela has 2B and OF eligibility but Padres ya know).
    3. SPs are deep but seem untrustworthy. They have actually performed well over the past month. I have not streamed as much and been able to bench in bad matchups and still hit the weekly innings limit of 40 winning ERA and WHIP my fair share of the time. I will need to drop one when Kershaw is back. Do I Drop the one now and stream or hold?
    4. More on SPs….do I keep them all for now and drop a hitter like Harrison or Williams and have a hole in my lineup when they platoon Dyson, give guys rest days?
    5. Do you charge by the amount of questions?
    Thank you!

    Grey,
    Im in a weekly league so this week rosters are already locked. Like to have a jump on streamers. If Eikhoff deals today at braves is he a must stream next week 2 starts at Padres and at Giants? Same with Velasquez vs Mets tomorrow, he would have 2 starts same as Eikhoff. Streamonator loves the San Diego starts but too far to see the Giants starts. Also Matt Moore vs Phil’s is loved by Streamonator which makes me doubt the whole thing…Thanks again you’re getting me into the playoffs it’s appreciated

    What’s extra-weird about Keynan Middleton getting the save for the Angels last night is that Scioscia had been ejected from the game in the top of the 7th. Is his bench coach just as crazy as he is? Did he sneak back into the dugout wearing a fake mustache, like Bobby Valentine?

    In Middleton’s last outing, he was used in the 5th inning when the team was behind. They must just be trying to f**k with us…

I had to show him how to start his Coleman grill, assemble a fly-pole + how to fly fish, and use his other camping equipment. He understands cell phones, I understand how to live in the “wild”.

    Anythehoo…a couple months ago I remember you having a buy/sell post that was telling people to sell on Donaldson. Perfect for today’s lead, as I traded Donaldson for a (then) hurt Kluber in my 12-team keeper league. I already had Chris Sale, so this is what I came home to see for both of their starts last night: 17IP, 1ER, 1BB, and 24K’s.

I know you recommended dropping Morton for Roark but I have a feeling Morton will get picked up and SON only dislikes one of Morton’s next two starts compared SON hating both of Roark’s next starts?

    Morton @TEX (-3.8), vs. ARI (7.5)
    Roark vs. MIA (-6.6), Roark vs. LAA (-7.0)

    Would you start Roark there and/or he at least worth the add over Bauer?

    3) Also I’ve got a slight 2 game lead in 1st and I’m not sure if my team is strong enough to go all the way in the playoffs… Trade deadline is on the 13th so do you see any major upgrade opportunities? Which two players (I want to consolidate bench bat) will land me a better piece? Any good buy low targets? I’ve been dying to get Machado or Darvish but that team never replies to messages so idk what he wants…

    4) Also, should I still be trying to sell Edwin and if so, at this point what speedier (I always lose in SBs) bats would you take for him at this point and/or what SP would you take straight up for him?

    Sorry for the lengthy post but your advice is greatly appreciated!

      1. hanley 2. No, forget Roark, hold Bauer and lose Castillo tomorrow 3. Edwin and Myers for OF upgrade? 4. Yes

        @Grey: Awesome thanks for the help! Only follow up question I have for now is what tier of bats should I target with a combo of Myers + Edwin? Seeing how Edwin is in my UTIL spot, I can actually target any position player (hopefully one who steals bases!) I’m gonna look at team’s with 1B and OF needs later but it’d good to know what players to look for in return…

          Oh, you can lose him if the league’s a shallow enough dynasty, like 12 team mixed

    12 team 6×6 h2h
    With Contreras potentially hitting the DL, who’s the best option at catcher?
    Vazquez
    Hedges
    Zunino
    Rupp (Knapp hit the DL so he’s full time now)
    Ramos
    d’artaud
    Cervelli

    Hey this might be a Ralph question but what do you think about Colorado minor leaguer Ryan McMahon? I know he had a down year last year but he’s been killing it this year…reports are that the Rox have had him play some 2B and 1B because Arenado isn’t going anywhere (obviously lol)

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Love him, no chance he comes and plays without at least two injuries

      • M says:
        (link)

        @Grey: read somewhere that he could take the 1B job if Reynolds slumps but I have a feeling Rox might try and sell high on DJ in the offseason and plug him in at 2B next yr

    Nova with another underwhelming start tonight. Would you chance German Marquez over Nova ROS?

      Grey says:

      Sure, but I wouldn’t start German at home

    H2H and opponent 1 more start with closers, I have Scherzer Pax Yu Hill Archer to go, still start Wood? (I’m ahead in the standard cats)

    Which of the following would you suggest:

    1. Give Lester to get Britton
    2. Give Lester, Betances, Lucroy to get Britton, Realmuto and pick up Quintana from waivers
    3. Drop Duffy or Gausman for Quintana (could also be combined with option 1)
    4. Do nothing

    SP is Yu, Lester, Duffy, Salazar, Gausman and RP is Kimbrel, Giles, Iglesias, Miller, Betances and Chad Green. W is close and I’m considering pivoting to move from middle of the pack in SV; currently I’m 5 saves ahead and 7 saves away from the next person (15 saves away from gaining 3 points).
