With the Twins saying th-th-that’s all Fuld, it opened up a spot for Kennys Vargas in their lineup.  My God, they killed Kennys (with kindness by promoting him)!  He’s a David Ortiz clone.  Too bad the Twins can’t have the real thing.  Oh, wait.  They used to!  Oh, God, Twins, you fell for the oldest trick in the book, mon.  Hopefully they don’t trade Lil Papi for a piece of spearmint gum the Red Sox find on the Pesky Pole.  “So, you’re saying Denis Leary once touched this gum?  We’ll take it!”  The Twins trade for once-touched-by-Denis-Leary gum, and execs are lauded by Twins fans!  Here’s the thing, if the Twins were in a different market, their moves that are ‘lauded by their fans’ would not be lauded.  Sorry, but it’s true.  People in Minnesota are too kind.   With that said, I do like Vargas and he looks like he’s going to play every day.  You don’t become Lil Papi without some power and Vargas has it to spare.  In Double-A, he had 17 homers in 356 ABs, and a rock solid OBP and K-rate.  He slugs, but doesn’t do it like most sluggers with huge strikeouts.  He could hit .275 and 25+ homers over the course of the season, and I’m going to like him a lot next year if he has a starting job (which he should).  For this year, I’d take a flyer on him if I needed power.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Dioner Navarro – “Okay, let’s move in!”  That’s the Mayans waiting for a sign of the apocalypse.  Apparently, Dioner being in a Buy column qualifies.

John Jaso – Parallel Universe Alert! On Planet Yradick, there’s a team called the S’a with a catcher, Joh Jason, and he’s an MVP, though they call it a Good Boy, Go Have Dinner Now award.  Sounds like a terrible place to live!  Here, Jaso has been hitting well all year, but you do need to expect to have him sit occasionally.

Juan Francisco – If Ryan Zimmerman had 16 homers like Francisco, I’d be over the moon.  And I know what sound stage they keep the moon at in Burbank, so I could carry out this threat.

Kendrys Morales – My enthusiasm for Kendrys has drys up a bit, but the Hitter-Tron likes him a lot, like it likes to squeeze itself between a toaster and a blender and move itself around provocatively.

Josh Rutledge – The universe doesn’t want Rutledge to succeed.  Tulo goes down, path opens and Rutledge gets sneezed on by someone in line at Target who doesn’t know how to Dracula their sneezes.  Rutledge should be back soon, and will once again have value until Tulo returns, which could be never.  Dracula your sneezes, people!

Jedd Gyorko – Whenever I see his name, I immediate picture Gyorko and I in a rom-com montage, trying on funny hats and silly sunglasses.  Is that weird?

Emilio Bonifacio – Has speed, will travel.

Dustin Ackley – Ding, ding, ding.  You’re microwave is dinging.  Ackley’s hot schmotato is ready.

Didi Gregorius – MC Ren had a difficult decision with his fantasy team, The West Coast All-Stars.  Pick up the hot-hitting Gregorius D.I.D., but risk opening his team page with Dre in the vicinity.  Luckily, Ren figured out a workaround.  He changed his team name to We’re All In The Same Gang, because he needed to beat DJ Yella’s Babe Ruthless Records.

Danny Santana – Nice middle infield selection this week to choose from.  Remind me next March to point out how drafting an MI is completely pointless.  I mean, I have said that the last seven years, but remind me to really hit it home next year.  Like with flashing lights and jpegs of Kate Upton around it.

Chris Taylor – Here’s hoping he becomes the everyday shortstop and goes off so I can call him Taylor H.A.M.

Yangervis Solarte – Hit it, Dino!  “Solarte, oh oh…Cantare, oh oh oh oh… Let’s fly way up to the clouds…”

Conor Gillaspie – I get it, I’m right there with you with Gillaspie.  Due to having absolutely no faith in him, at the first sign of trouble – say an 0-for-3 or a one game benching — he’s the drop from your team.  I’m the same way with him, and have now dropped and re-picked him up about a half dozen times.  Though, that means he’s also staying hot.

Jake Petricka – I wish I could ride his boogie for some saves.  I wanna Petricka wit’ you all night.  So we can Petricka forever!  I wanna Petricka wit’ you!  All night!  That’s until Matt Lindstrom comes back.

Jake Odorizzi – Since May 1st, his ERA is now an even 3 with 107 Ks in 90 IP.  For serious, I’m at a lost as to what else to tell you if that still only has him at 30% owned.  Mike Minor has a 5.23 ERA and is owned in 62% of leagues.  Verlander has a 4.79 ERA and is owned in 100% of leagues.  *throws hands up*  You win, man and four girl readers!

James Paxton – Wasn’t he a basketball player?  Sounds faintly familiar, but my basketball knowledge ends at Lil Penny.  They don’t make commercials like they used to…which is a good thing.  Actually, they might, I haven’t watched a commercial in about ten years.  Ooh, Grey’s so cool, he doesn’t watch commercials.  Any the hoo!  Paxton returns tomorrow and he was fantastic prior to the DL and has been great in spurts, so I’d let him spurt on my team.  Hmm, that sounded wrong.

Francisco Liriano – Even if you ignore he’s thrown back-to-back gems, the Stream-o-Nator likes his next start.  No reason to be leery, yo, of Liriano.  Kinda rhymes points!

Wei-Yin Chen – Don’t love him, but the Stream-o-Nator likes his start today, so I would give him a whirlybird.

Billy Burns – With the A’s and their twelve outfielders, I don’t know if Burnsie will get a chance to show his world-class speed.  And I don’t use world-class as an adjective like airlines use ‘world-class.’  Like, “Hey we give out a giant maxi pad as a pillow, we can say we’re world-class!”  Burns is sick fast, and sick as in healthy, not sick as in ill.  Playing time is a bit of a bugaboo here, that’s all.

Travis Snider – With Marte struggling to get back on the field, Snider’s been all that and a bag of chips.  Fritos.  That are kinda tasty, but if you leave them open too long they go stale and then you need to drape them in chili.  “Drape in chili?”  I should be the Next Food Network Star!

Oscar Taveras – I went over my Taveras fantasy this morning.  If you click around the site, you’ll find it and also earn me one-eighteenth of a penny.  Good times!  On a side note that has nothing to do with Taveras, in the comments today, people have decided to put their very own selfies.  Go to gravatar.com and upload a photo to play along.  Or not.  Your choice.

Josh Reddick – Was a bit surprised to not only see Reddick under 50% owned, but available (on waivers) in my RCL.  I demand you pick him up off waivers right now.  Then call a friend and say, “Just grabbed Reddick.  No homo.”

Anthony Gose – SAGoseNOF!

SELL

Any Player That Can’t Win You A Championship For Any Player That Wins You The Championship – No, don’t go to your waiver wire looking for someone named, Any Player That Wins You The Championship.  He exists, but not in his most literal form.  He’s amorphous.  No, that feeling you have when you see Robin Thicke is not amorphous.  That’s something else.  Yes, Chris Sale has been terrific for your team, but if you don’t need pitching, why are you holding him?  Check your voicemail; that’s me screaming at you to go for the title.  Sorry, I get emotional.  If you love Kimbrel and want to have his babies, I can’t argue with you, but if you don’t need saves, friend him on Facebook, DM him some noodes and trade him away for something you need!  With trading deadlines quickly approaching, now is the time to lay your cards on the table and go for the gusto and other cliches.  You need to win now and if that means making lopsided trades that don’t look great on the surface, but help you win, do it!

    I have been holding Springer on DL. Would I be better off taking a chance on Vargas? Springer was had been good for HRs and that’s about it. I would drop Soria to get Vargas.

      I’d want Springer, can lose Soria for Vargas though

    Gonna grab Paxton. Gotta bag one the following knuckleheads:

    Pearce
    Lowrie (I have Hardy, Gyorko and D. Santana)
    Aoki

    Which one makes you gag the most? If I had the cojones, I’d cut Jay Bruce loose, but that’s not gonna happen. Thanks Grey.

    I wholeheartedly apologize for the “Francisco Lindor promotion” joke post earlier. It wasn’t my intention to mislead anyone.

    Just to be clear to fantasy players in non dynasty leagues looking to pick up Lindor – the best you’ll see is a cup of coffee as a September call up. Heck, he may not even be the opening day SS to start the 2015 season. The Indians could look to promote him after his super two cut off so they get an additional year of control.

    Other teams are bolder in promoting young guys. The Indians are at the conservative end of that spectrum.

    12 team 5×5 ESPN Standard

    Butler or Vargas for util spot

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Vargas

    What do you think about AJ Pollock? dude was Trout-ian (kinda) for April and May before breaking his hand.

    I’m stashing him in a 10 teamer but I’m worried of the toll that hand injuries have on a guy’s hitting ability might make him worthless for this year…good sleeper for next year though, could be the 2015 Brantley

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’ll like him for next year, no more than a flyer for this year

  15. Qbert says:
    (link)

    Grey wut it do maaaaayne? Happy Friday

    Anyway enough of that, I’m wondering if I should drop my Ajax for any other OF. some guys available are Eaton and Redick. I could use the runs and ops, power isn’t too big of an issue for me cuz I don’t have much, but if I can snag a better bat than Ajax, holla at me.

    So in conclusion, Ajax eaton or red-dick ROS?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Eaton

      • Qbert says:
        (link)

        @Grey:
        Jd Martinez is available via waiver claim. Any better than eaton?

    12 Team points league with heavy scoring for pitchers (50 pts per win, -15 pts per loss, 2.5 pts per K, -2.5 pts per ER, -1 pt per BB). Should I start Liriano (SON $10.2) @ Diamondbacks Cahill or Weaver (SON $4.1) @ TB Rays Odorizzi OR BOTH? Chasing wins a plus.

    WET TAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Both

  19. ferris says:

    given that price and lester stayed in the AL (and someone else will get Lackey), would you, in an NL only league, grab asdrubal Cabrera for spite?

    • The Thumb says:
      (link)

      @David: Price, Bum, Harvey

      First 2 are a toss up but advantage Price because K’s. Harvey will have the typical post Tommy J surgery bumps. Look at Wainwright in 2012

      • MessyF says:

        @The Thumb: but Harvey will have extra time to recover. He’s already pitching…

    Kibash Beckett for Odorizzi?

    I know you mentioned you wouldn’t touch Beckett, I want to give him the one last start vs the Cubs before cutting him loose…plus Odorizzi gets the Angels this weekend, mini acid test I suppose.

    And my pitching is so inconsistent and streamer-esque, I’ll take all the help I can get!

    I need of some quality control.
    In a 12-team limited keeper league, currently riding in 1st place but wanna lock it down.
    I’m being offered Trout for my King Felix (who can be kept at a steep price next year) in a 11×11 league – basically OBP + OPS, w, qs, sv, hld, k’s, and all ratios. Trout cannot be kept at all.
    My OF is Puig, Holliday, Calhoun and Polanco as a sub.
    Rest of staff is your son(ny) Gray, filthy Fister, Archer, Stroman and DeGrom. Liriano is available on the wire.
    I’ve got the lead in all the ratios and I think my staff could support the loss of Felix, agree/disagree?

    Good write up on what’s possibly wrong with Minor this season. His release point is different and may be effecting the vertical movement of his fastball.

    Weekly league, 5×5 roto. Got a lot of 2-start options for next week and I can only play 2 of these guys after Kershaw and Price. In a very tight race for ERA/WHIP right now.

    Which 2 would you go with?

    Duffy vs SF, @ ARI
    Kuroda vs CLE, vs DET
    Morton vs SD, vs MIA

    I am flummoxed….

    “Dracula” as a verb – brilliant! Can you gaze into the crystal ball and foresee the value of Khris Davis ROS? Khris Davis is standing on the plank. Possible replacements include Redcock, Carter, Coghlan, and Venable.
    Could also drop Vogt, but the supply/demand curve always takes priority.

    You da real MVP, Grey. Question:

    NL only keeper league, I have the top waiver position and a loaded team. I could use waiver on Lackey, but would prob drop Garza for the roster space – I see that as a slight upgrade. Should I pick up Lackey, or hold my cards in hope that an August waiver trade sends a legit keeper over to the NL?

    5 keeper max; mine currently between Teaheran, Arrieta, Arismendy, D. Brown (doh!), Wong, Jimmy Nelson, Sergio Casilla

    I’m day dreaming about siiping on a cocktail watching Gyorko hit another HR tonight……. I found an amazing bottle of Whiskey that has me crushing like a young Au shizz for you, It’s called Johnny Drum Private stock (15 year aged) I’d love to send my favorite Mustachioed Man a bottle (it’s a $100 bottle that only costs $31 bucks) I’m not sure if you’re a whiskey guy, but this is as good as getting Rizzo for Martin Perez in the 3rd week of the year. I’m sending you a donation for good measure here’s where to buy;

    Is giving up Trumbo (4th rd) Billy Hamilton (8th rd) DeGrom (waiver 10th), and Hahn (waiver) for Teheran (7th rd) Price (can’t be kept) and Gardner (13th) acceptable?

    I’m in a 12 team H2H keeper league with OPS, QS, and CGs. Our commish won’t allow draft pick trades after a lot of fuckery the past few seasons, so I can only propose “keepable” players to tanking teams. I’m in second, and just lost Lee, so I feel like upgrading my staff is necessary. The person I’m trading with happens to hate Brett, so it seems like I’m getting super blessed.

    Hey buddy, I have two teams and I drafted Gyorko on both of them. Now he’s a free agent and I’m wondering if I should make a move on one of my teams.

    Here is my roster in question:
    Norris, Pujols, Kinsler, Longoria, Dee Gordon, Adam Jones, Joey Bats, Brantley, Abreu, Revere
    Anibal, Teheran, Arrieta, Quintana, Homer, Alex Wood, Shoemaker, Hudson
    Robertson, Casilla, Rondon, McGee

    Basically I was thinking of letting loose Hudson or Shoemaker so that Gyorko could replace Longoria. Is that necessary or should I hold?

    2- Would you want weaver or porcello?

    I went for it in 1 league moving $1 taveras and baez offmy 3 man bench with byrd n dgrom for Giancarlo n Greinke

    All is well

    2nd nl league 8 pts out of 1st lost cain today and staff is meh meh after cueto i run out bailey liriano, santana, timmy l. Koehler, despaigne can move $1 taveras or $5 Chapman for Posey or $10 gattis, $5 adams, Strasburg and soriano….can grab 3 for 1

    I need rbi’s and to maintain In saves and add a starter

    Moving Chapman hurts but for 3?

    NL only where i’ve been saved from Carmart’s scary stats but crazy high upsideyness by STL. currently dropped him for c.anderson. but i’m right about at projected innings to take on another starter, so i’ll wait to see if beckett looks even half decent (on bench), if not who to pick up: (net saves/holds/RW)
    hatcher/de fratus/delgado (he’s been very good for a while now)/kahnle/d.carpenter (finally starting to rebound, no holds lately)/chuck newtown/marshall (most holds out of this group lately)/russell/le clure

    i’m starting to figure this MI punting (actually you could kick it farther than catcher, really in some cases) is smart as hell. none of this making sure we get gyorko before 130th overall stuff. or brad miller before 220th or so. these guys are all waiverable post draft (i mean the ones that perform as if they were living out gyorko/miller’s preseason projections). had i acted on this preseason every one of my leagues could have 3 (at least) out of goldy/rizzo/abreu/donaldson/fielder/pujols/frazier.

    Vogt, JD MArt, Choo, Hosmer. How would you rank them since they are all available to fill a bench spot for me, and want to put in waivers by priority. Position doesnt matter as they would fill my second utility.

    Hey grey , I’m now in the newest post- didn’t realize I was so far behind, I want to move pedroia but the owner declined a trade in which I’d receive-/ hopefully pedroia can have solid games tomowrow & Sunday maybe if that happens the owner would be more inclined to deal Grenike for my pedey.

    If still no for Grenike, I’m trying for Jose Reyes, Jason werth , & Jordan Zimmerman . What’s your ranking in order for player to try to aquire

    If I didn’t have dee Gordon id prob end up keeping laser show

    My staff is Lester iwakuma gio odorizzi Hahn wood keuchel shoemaker and cole. I’m making a push for the playoffs. I’m worried about having to piece together a staff once playoffs come as a couple of those guys will get shutdown. I have limited moves so if I stream I have to be right each time. I have about 30 more moves.

    The price for pitching is high in this league.
    Another team is in fire sale mode but doesn’t have much. I can grab dee Gordon and weaver relatively cheap.

    So based on that
    Am I right to be concerned about staff as is?
    Is weaver a decent target?

    Who do you like best ROS. Asdrubal, Everth, or Alcantara?

    Thanks,

    • @BringdaRuckus: I’d say E Cab, cause he has done it before, he had 4 hits 2 runs, a ribby and even stole a base last night.

    Drop Chris Davis in 10 teamers?

  116. ryanoger says:

    JD Martinez was dropped do I drop Ozuna to make the add?

    Other available players- Eaton, Josh Harrison

    My Roster:
    Meso, A Gone, Cano, T Fraiz, Rollins, A Jones, Melky, Puig, Pence, Calhoun

    Or do I loose Calhoun? Nice to have a multi position player with A Gone getting the bruised knee last night ( switch T Fraiz to first and adjust accordingly)

    Thoughts?

    Thanks as always!

    I know it’s early for the west coasters but I need some thoughts pronto..,,
    I’m making a push for the playoffs after struggling all season Team is finally doing something. I’m about 10 gms out from the playoffs. Current staff is Lester iwakuma gio odorizzi Hahn wood keuchel and cole.

    Should I move cole and kipnis plus a 7th round pick for Scherzer and a 15?
    Kipnis has been regulated to the bench and is an occasional fill in.
    I need a pitcher to compete with the top teams here. We have limited moves in this league so streaming Iant a reliable option ROS.

    I also have the possibility of getting darvish for the same deal. But owner wants to wait a bit before selling off

    So should I grab Scherzer

    14 team dynasty league. with these SP (1500 innings cap) and 3 RP spots (saves only). when i got this team i had 0 closers, now have feliz/benoit/mcgee. which trade
    my hahn/machado/feliz or my hahn/machado/duda for c.davis/bruce/kemp?
    normally i’d be sure this would be feliz but since duda only has 1B next year i’d have no where to put him with c.davis/goldy/frazier at 1b/3b and only 1 util. or is duda (even on bench) worth enough more than a closer that his backup/trade value alone is still worth that much more (it might be, plus c.davis has sucked)

    No!!! My fears are being realized….

    “Khris Davis wasn’t in Saturday’s lineup because Brewers manager Ron Roenicke wanted to see Gerardo Parra start in left, not because of Davis’ calf tightness… Davis left Friday’s game against the Cardinals with tightness in his left calf. “(Parra’s) not in the lineup because of (Davis’ calf),” said Roenicke. “He’s in the lineup because he matched up well with Masterson. I was going to play Parra tomorrow because he matched up well with Lynn but now he’s not pitching so `KD’ will probably be back in there.” Upon acquiring Parra from Arizona, Roenicke told Davis that he is still the primary left fielder… We expect left field to be closer to a timeshare between Davis and Parra.

    Hi Grey thanks for your recommendation about Vargas. I do really need power, especially Bruce’s draft really fails (so far)…

    “For this year, I’d take a flyer on him if I needed power.”
    How can you so sure him (as a MLB prospect) to be a flyer by the end of year?

    H2h categories league. Going against a guy who’s putting out all closers, a couple decent ones but then a bunch of scrubs. I have a very slim advantage (.165 ahead of him) in the whip category and need to win it.

    Would sit all my pitching but I can’t, not enough bench spots.

    I have Perkins, uehara, and rosenthal and then I need to start one pitcher, should it be strasburg at PHI or Iwakuma at BAL? Which do you think gets me the lower whip?

    The other option is to row out an intentionally illegal lineup and hope the slim margin in whip holds. Dick move but it’s no holds barred with this dude I’m facing.

    What do you all think?

    I just traded Longoria and Rizzo for Goldschmidt and Lester.

    We are able to cancel it because he went on the DL during the waiting period. Should I cancel or just live with it?

    We keep five and Longoria and Rizzo were both keepers of mine. I’d probably keep Goldschmidt and not Lester. I have Arenado as my 3b if we keep the trade.

    ok, harrison or polanco get an RBI, i can’t win hits by 22, bases by nearly 40, homers by 4 and lose RBI’s! only up 3 and opp only has freeman/prado (funny that a playoff team in 10 teamer has to even play prado) left so i’m probably fine.

    anybody else lose this week and in last year’s H2H playoffs due to pence going crazy? i didn’t today, but last year i was 2nd best team in first round and lost due to pence having 8 homers that week.

                @Grey: You might even say that that Affleck is big!

                I hooked up with a random girl at a friend’s party around that time period (probably more like 11-12 years ago) who claimed that she was a bartender in the Boston area, and he got wasted and tried to pick her up one night while she was working. She, of course, rebuffed his drunken advances. Which, in reality, means that she either spotted him across the room or he just ordered a drink from her. Or it’s complete BS. But I count it as scooping up his leavings. So there’s that.

                I’d rather share his bank account though…

    Kennys Vargas, Middlebrooks, Reynolds, Pearce, Plouffe, Swisher, Vogt, Gillaspie or Jeter over Rutledge, Ackley or Odor? 5×5 scoring

    I’m thinking Odor has to go even though I’ve been trying to stash him to possibly keep him (10-team, keep-18 league, but most likely he’d be a reach)

      Vargas and Plouffe over Odor and Rutledge

    16 teamer with 6 keepers.
    navarro
    vargas/hosmer (DL)
    kinsler/walker
    miggy/zimmerman (DL)
    castro
    upton/revere/ozuna/gordon/reddick
    franco (NA)
    SP: shark/cobb/hendricks/morton/miley/gee/shoemaker/lackey.
    1. at this point i’m thinking the keepers are cobb/miggy/kinsler/upton and which 2 others?
    2. owner is making goldy available (i’m in 9th, likely to miss playoffs when only 6 make it anyway). i’m thinking of trading shark and something else. thinking miggy is too much. trying to find out which of my keepers to give up with shark to get goldy.

    • Bull in a Chinese Restaurant says:
      (link)

      @Bull in a Chinese Restaurant: 2. i could throw in feliz or perkins, as this owner only has 1 closer, but very good holds guys.

      1. Ozuna, Shark 2. Go for it

      • Bull in a Chinese Restaurant says:
        (link)

        @Grey: what about this trade idea he had?
        my cobb/miggy/perkins for his goldy/wacha/arenado? i would try to sub in shark for cobb of course. this would make keepers cobb/goldy/arenado/kinsler/ozuna/upton. before i accept that (if it’s good) i’m trying to do shark/perkins and a 2nd SP not named Cobb (or maybe 2nd closer feliz)

    if even 2 of these guys rebound (not just this year) this will have been quite a trade rape.
    just bought kemp/c.davis/bruce for machado/hahn/feliz. dynasty. comish even emailed me to say he’d allow it but i robbed the guy (wasn’t my idea).

    Odorizzi or Keuchell ?- whichever I pick I need to keep for all his start for ROS

    F me..I can’t believe i’m dropping goldy when im hanging onto 1st place by a thread. I keep thinking the second I drop him theres going to be report that says oh yeah we were kidding he only broke a nail lmao.. I’m looking at Chisenhall, Vargas or Singleton? Does it look like E- Cab is becoming fantasy relevant again? I got questions yo

    guy accepted quickly, and i didn’t try to lower offer to see if he might take it since he was trying to sell goldy AND arenado to win this year (said he would take best offer, and if i couldn’t be that might as well get it done before somebody else pays more)
    it went arenado/goldy/wacha for my shark/miggy/perkins. next step try to up my 6 keepers of cobb/arenado/ozuna/goldy/upton/kinsler by moving wacha/1 hitter for better (keeper level) hitter.

    In a keeper league would you trade Freeman for Au Schizz? Is that a smart play for the long-run or would holding firm be a wiser play?

    Most underrated sports rivalry of all time: The Rock vs. Mankind…actually Triple H vs. Mankind/Cactus Jack was epic too on both underrated and epic (watching the Street Fight from the Royal Rumble with the Hell In The Cell from No Way Out on deck…two of the top 10-15 matches of all time)

    What’s your thoughts on Chris Davis? He is a free agent in my 5X5 H2H ESPN league now, but is he worth adding? The guy has struggled so far….
