How great would it be for the Braves to trade for Marlon Byrd?  Byrd and Ervin reunited.  Byrd, of course, would have to bleach his skin like Sammy Sosa, put a giant yellow Brillo pad on his head for hair and wear some butt-hugging shorts that even white boys got to shout, “Baby got back!”  Then Isiah can show up early, kiss them all on the cheek and watch from the sidelines.  Ah, to dream (team).  Due to a slightly inflated BABIP, Ervin Santana‘s ERA is up a tad from where it should be.  Right now, he has the 27th best xFIP, right in front of Adam Wainwright.  Speaking of Wainwright, Ervin’s K-rate is better than his.  Is Ervin Santana pitching better than Wainwright?  I wouldn’t go that far, but I wouldn’t go so far away from that statement either.  Doesn’t anyone stay in one place anymore?  It would be fine to see your face– Sorry.  The great thing about Ervin compared to a Wainwright, he’s not even owned in some leagues.  In the leagues where he is owned, how much would it take to get him in a trade?  A Brain Freeze?  A potato chip that’s in the shape of Sloth from The Goonies?  A free ticket to an autograph show where Shelley Duncan is dressed up like Tackleberry from Police Academy?  I.e., not much.  Go, get Ervin, he’s magic, abracadabra.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Adam Duvall – His nickname, “Cornersigliere.”  Here’s my Adam Duvall fantasy.  I wrote it while pulling into a toll booth.

Nick Swisher – Sure, when he visited the Ohio State Assembly and argued that the state bird should be depicted with sideburns, we all thought this guy was a total jackass, but he has been hitting in the last month and he’s hitting .212 on the year, which is ridiculously low, even for him.

James Loney – Like Swisher, Loney has no respect for the history of our country, and his trip to the Smithsonian to try and alter Lenny’s Lone Wolf jacket to Loney Wolf, was a slap on the face of American culture, but he is hitting over .400 in the last week.

Emilio Bonifacio – Women’s Lit author, Emily Boneface, who is best known for, “Open The Door For Yourself,” was just activated from the DL, and could be some sweet SAGNOFy goodness in the middle of your fantasy team.

Josh Rutledge – I could tell you to pick up Rutledge while he’s in Coors, as I have already, but I just received an email saying I stand to inherit $27 million dollars from an uncle I didn’t even know I had in Nigeria, so whatevs.  I’m rich, biatch!

Conor Gillaspie – The other day I was taking Rudy’s little girl for the afternoon because I’d promised to take her to the circus, and we were in the cab playing “I Spy.” I spy a mailbox, I spy a lamp-post, and she looked out at my phone and saw I had Ryan Zimmerman in my DL slot and she saw my corner slot, and she said, “Gillaspie.”  And I started to cry.  You know, I just started crying.  And I went home, and I said, “The thing is, Rudy, we never do fly off to Rome on a moment’s notice.”

Arismendy Alcantara – If I could buy the world a Coke, I wouldn’t.  Bad for you.  Too much sugar.  Drink water, you hillbilly.  I would pick up Arismendy for everyone’s fantasy team though.

Stephen Drew – Middle infielders are so itsy-bitsy better than catchers.  Or itchy-bits as my autocorrect tried to write.  I think my autocorrect has crabs.  What I mean by my catcher comparison is you can really run through them if your league is shallow enough.  Grab one, let him hit for a week or two, watch him get cold and you drop him.  Right now, Drew seems to be the latest middle infidel for power.

Jake Petricka – I have no idea what Robin Ventura’s going to do when Matt Lindstrom returns.  No one really knows.  This is the guy that thought it was a good idea to charge Nolan Ryan.  I would own both, but it’s a closerfudge of biblical proportions.

Neftali Feliz – I just gave you my Neftali Feliz fantasy.  I wrote it with a peacock feather quill, and I only had to moisten the tip once with my tongue.

Odrisamer Despaigne – I just gave you my Odrisamer Despaigne fantasy.  That was written with a dodo feather.  Cause that’s how I do do!

Jake Odorizzi – Since May 1st, he has an ERA of 3.14 in 83 innings.  Yup.  Want more?  Y’all greedy!  I like that.  In those 83 IP, he has 102 Ks.  That’s three months where he’s been better than Verlander BY A LOT– Sorry, my caps lock button sticks sometimes.

Wade Miley – This is a Stream-o-Nator pick, but I have said to just pick up Miley in the past.  Don’t make me go back there!

Matt Shoemaker – His peripherals are insanely good — 9+ K/9 and sub-1 BB/9.  I’d do dirty stuff with those stats.  The Stream-o-Nator doesn’t love his Saturday start, but I’d give him a whirl in most leagues.

Danny Salazar – Throwing this guy in your league is like you’re standing in a room with a guy in hospital scrubs, another guy holding an Igloo cooler and a hot girl who is promising you sex until you’re unconscious and you drop a roofie in your own drink.

Marcus Stroman – I just went over Stroman this morning.  If you use your scrolly finger, you can find it.  I promise.

Chris Carter – Here comes the story of the Hurry K’d.  The man the authorities came to blame for something that he never done like go one-for-one with three walks.

Denard Span – He’s hitting .282 with 17 steals and 61 runs.  That’s a pace of 95 runs and 25 steals with a solid average.  He’s also owned in 40% of leagues.  Okie doke.  You can’t even get your feet wet in that shallow of a league.

Josh Reddick – Just returned from the DL, and could hit for some pop.  Hitter-Tron also loves Reddick and putting his Metal**** in a gas tank.

Kevin Kiermaier – Probably the hottest hitter on the Rays.  Why then is he hitting ninth?  You’d have to ask Joe Maddon’s tarot card reader.

Anthony Gose – “Hello, this is Jarrod Dyson calling on behalf of Rajai, the King of SAGNOF, I’m requesting Anthony Gose’s attendance at our next wench delousing.”

SELL

Hanley Ramirez – I think every Dodger player, except Greinke and Dee Gordon have appeared this year in my Sell column.  Not even joking.  I’m a hometown hater, huh?  I hate to go back on my 2nd half top 100 so soon afterwards, but as I said in that post, things change daily.  Hanley is hurt, and even when healthy, he doesn’t seem to want to play.  He goes through these funks.  I don’t know why.  I was surprised he wanted to play last year.  He seemed like he hung up his cleats a few years back.  As I’ve said before, insouciance doesn’t age well.  Think about the hot girl who got all the guys in high school then lost her looks ten years later.  She never had to develop a personality and, now at age thirty, she’s screwing guys in the bathroom of some bar with sawdust on the floor and hoping they’ll adopt her two kids, Bob Jr. and Bob Jr. Jr.  I don’t want to adopt Hanley’s kids.  I wouldn’t trade him for an 8 track of Styx’s The Serpent Is Rising, but I would explore options.

    Right Rank? (Sorted by Razzball/Steamer $):
    Kennedy (13.1),
    Minor (9.6),
    Lincecum (9.1),
    Hammel (4.9),
    Stroman (4.6),
    Odorizzi (4.4),
    McCarthy (1.0).

    Should McCarthy be much higher with great peripherals and use of his cutter?

    Will Stroman last until the end of my playoffs (9/21)?

    Considering selling Kluber high, since I have plenty of pitching and my ratios are strong. Is Jose Reyes enough or should I aim higher?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Reyes is fair, he’s probably worth a bit more than that… You probably have a SPs that are viewed as more valuable if you have plenty of pitching…

      • Emrys says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Yeah Mad Bum/Strasburg/Gray/Kluber/Stroman/Wood is my staff… maybe I’ll shop Strasburg instead?

    Hi Grey,

    I’m 8 points back of 1st place in an 11 team roto league and need some pitching advice. League counts: W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/9, QS. Here’s my staff:

    SP: Teheran, Hamels, Bailey, Arrieta, Chavez, Nelson, Cain on DL (we have 4 DL spots)

    RP: Jansen, Janssen, Street, Qualls, McGee, Mejia, Feliz, W Smith, Walden

    Currently way behind in W, QS, K. With 47 moves left, what’s the best way to catch up? Thanks and have a good weekend!

    12-team, 6×6 weekly H2H, each category a win.
    Cats are W-L, QS, K/9, ERA, WHIP, S
    Start 4 SP, 2 RP, 1 P.
    I’m solidly in first, but feel my pitching could let me down in playoffs.

    I usually play (3) or (4) RP and try to take advantage of rules.
    SP – Waino, Gray, Shields, Fister
    RP – Holland, Kenley,
    P – Britton
    BN – Ventura, Gausman, Bauer, Soria, Paxton (DL)

    Which (3) players would you feel comfortable dealing for Darvish as ROS rental (would only deal 2 of them)?
    Same players for Felix?

    Xander (3 yrs control in 12th, 10th, 8th)
    Yordano (14th, 12th, 10th)
    Bauer (15th, 13th, 11th)
    Lindor (19th, 17th, 15th)

    Is my Hanley for his Dickerson too much in a keeper league? I am not a Hanley fan and like Dickerson a lot.

    Thanks.

    In a head to head 12 team mixed keeper league (keep 4 up to 3 years and prices increase $5 every year) I was offered the following trade: Freeman ($20), Brantley ($6) and Teheran ($13) for my Abreu ($14). Prices are prices for next year. I’m currently tied for third and trying to decide if it’s worth trading a few years of a cheap Abreu for a shot at the title this year (although the players I’m getting back in this deal are at good prices too but not as game changing as Abreu). What do you think? Thanks a lot!

    Hey Grey,

    I’m in a league with a tight cap on season-moves limit with TB and OPS, and I’ve had Alcides Escobar for nearly the entire season.

    The last month has been absolutely brutal though (7 runs, 4 SB, 5 RBIs, .233 AVG).

    Should I dump him for Drew, D.Santana, Rutledge, or Amarista? Remember, I can’t really rosterbate here.

    Grey, I know you’re a big fan of Adam Jones – Do you still see him as a first round pick next year? I’m out of it this year, and my 4 keepers are McCutchen, Cano, Rizzo and Donaldson at the moment, so this would allow me to swap in Jones as my 4th keeper instead of Donaldson. Big keeper upgrade even considering position scarcity at 3B?

      @Abdoozy: NO! I did the same thing! Now that the purple evolutionist is gone and the cubs brought Addison Russell to AAA to play short, Baez is at 2nd, Alcantara is a lock for playing every day (unless he starts sucking badly, which i don’t think he will do). Wong on the other hand has been in and out more than…. nevermind, but you get the picture. Plus, Alcantara will have OF eligibility soon (depending on your league rules) in case you ever need it for a night, excellent bonus…

        It’s almost August FFS… His slash this month is .154 / .203 / .353. 19 Ks against 4 walks. His GB/FB ratio is 1.38, a career high by a mile and 45 points higher than last year. And those ground balls are going into the shift.
        You can thank me when he blows up after I drop him I guess… But he’s dead to me.

    Hi Grey. I’m pulling the plug in one of my injury filled leagues. I know it way too early for next years questions but would you rather have Frazier or Brantley as a keeper? Thanks. Enjoy your weekend!

    Okay razzballers. Two questions..

    1. Do you have an iphone?
    2. What do you use to keep up with games?

    I previously used yahoo’s play by play on my droid which was real simple and easy to navigate. But now with this phone everything is so stupid and complicated. Where is there a place i can see the hitter, pitcher, plays in that inning, count, lineup and be able to switch thru teams that are playing? I tried lots of sites so far snd they all fall short..

    Any suggestions? I need to get me some damn baseball. Motel 6 has like 8 channels…. Cant even watch the a’s game…. Is there an app for this shizz or wat!?

    Thanks!

                    @jef with 1 f: Bleacher Report makes you up their click count for ad money as they send you through a slideshow of pointless images/meatless analysis.

    Brantley just broke an o for 16 slide at the plate. A pretty unlucky run of futility to be fair, as hes been robbed of at least 4 line drive base hits.

    Oh, and carlos santana just woke up! A 2 homer game. Hes basically been the sole offense against an impressive jordano ventura. Jose bautista eat your heart out!

    Grey, great write up. I’m in a 14 team roto keep with a deep OF – going to deal one for some pitching help, who do you look to move first?

    Ellsbury, Werth, Holliday, Dickerson and Melky.

    I’m inclined to deal Melky or Holliday first but would love to hear your thoughts.

        • SteveNZ says:

          @gareth: I know that, but there were also two guys aboard in a 5-1 game which means that the tying run is on deck. That’s what makes it a save situation.

          Him letting a run in (even if it’s not his runner) and then starting the 9th with a three-run lead is not a save situation.

    Is Evan Gattis gonna get his groove back? I currently have Gattis and Sal Perez on my roster but this two catcher situation is not sustainable. I’d drop Perez for 1st half Gattis, but what can I expect for the back nine?

    So, I’m leading H2H 6-4 this week, but it’s pretty close in all categories except OBP and AVG where I have a big lead.

    We’re tied 1-1 in Wins and I’m behind by 7 in Ks. Thinking of throwing some starters to see if I can take those categories. Available guys tomorrow include:

    Miller @ CHC
    Shoemaker v DET
    Koehler @ HOU
    Cosart v MIA
    Vogelsong v LAD

    SON doesn’t like any of them that much, but is Shoey the best or is Koehler safer? Or is there a better option there?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      None are safe… I’d risk it with Shoemaker

      • SteveNZ says:

        • Grey

    I’m in a 12 team H2H dynasty and we keep forever. I’m in 2nd and going for it this year. I have a tentative offer where I trade Myers/Anibal for Bautista/Arrieta

    Which side would you want to be on?

    Joey is old, injury prone and hasn’t done anything since May. But after Myers disappointing start I’m worried he’s not as good as he looked last year. Anibal isn’t doing great this year and arrieta could just be riding a hot streak as opposed to a real breakout

    Am I selling low on Myers here? Or should I jump at the chance to get Joey? Fair deal?

    • jef with 1 f says:

    Hello Grey,

    I’m looking for a way to get Rizzo.
    Would this be a good trade:

    Give: Yu, Cespedes, and Holt
    Get: Rizzo, JD Martinez, and Morton/Wheeler/Shelby Miller

    Which of the SP you prefer? The other team is giving Morton but I’m pushing more for Wheeler who has rebouned nicely and gets more Ks.

    H2H, 12 teams, 3 keepers.
    My Keepers would then be Stanton, Encarnacion, and Rizzo instead of Yu.

    Many thanks.

    • jef with 1 f says:

    I don’t know, Grey. I did acquire Hanley in a 16-team league. My shortstops were Brad Miller and Xander. I gave up Miller, Leake and Corey Dickerson for Hanley, who is still an upgrade at that position. I will C-D, but I had to give up something of value besides two loaves of crap.

    Hey Grey. What do I do with Cashner? Not sure he will be back soon or be effective when he is back. Seems pretty risky. still has value in my league and thought about flipping him for another DL player like CJ wilson, belt, marte, etc. What would you do?

Should I use my last add to grab Yohan Pino, Kyle Hendricks ( for tomorrow) or should I not chance the negative points and pickup Colon for next week where he pitches twice?? I need to know soon if possible.. Thanks Bud!!

      Colon

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        Thanks.. But he just picked up both those pitchers and now he’s got more pitchers going and he just had a big win by Hutchison. how it works is more innings the better 3 points per IP, 7 win 3 QS but -1 HA, -1 ER, -1 BB.. I was goona drop Casey McGahee to pickup Colon or now I can grab Roberto Hernandez for tomorrow cause I thought Encarnacion was coming back Monday but I Need this win. Shoud I just grab Hernandez for the points, keep McGahee or grab Colon ? I need this weeks win.. Thanks!!!

    My team is falling out of contention this year. In a keeper league would you trade Miggy, Jake McGee and a 10th round pick for T. Frazier, M. Wacha and a 5th round pick? Miggy costs a 1st rounder next year whereas Frazier is a 25th round pick and Wacha is a 24th round pick. Thanks.

    • Mello Yello says:
      (link)

      @hankg: That’s not terrible given the rounds situation…but I mean Miggy would cost you a first rounder in every situation anyway (a top 2-3 pick mind you). Also I guarantee McGee is not gonna cost much to hold either as Maddon’s finally letting him run away with the job…so I would hold on that action

    can’t believe it but after trading harvey for frazier, the goldy owner just agreed to him for Kershaw. i had by far the best pitching of any team i’ve ever seen and since we only get 1500 innings per year i still have a lot of pitchers, which i’m sure is still best idea since so many of them get hurt. this is a 14 team dynasty roto 5 X 5 with OBP and slug replacing homers and average, and standard 5×5 pitching cats. with this lineup now: (3 OF no CI/MI and 1 util)
    jaso/vogt
    goldy/frazier/vogt/mcgehee/duda
    wong
    frazier/machado/mcgehee
    segura/castro
    stanton/cespedes/duda/j.jones
    belt/phillips (DL)
    gallarado/hammel/hahn/odrisamer/miley/latos/darvish/morton/odorizzi.
    1.i’m guessing i should drop mcgehee for a roster spot that is a 2b for all wong off days, streamer all other days (no pickup max in this league)
    2. also this team is in 13th and 259 innings under projected. how many pitcher slots (and which pitchers are droppable to do it) should i stream to try to get as many decent innings as possible with these guys possibly streamable.

    • goodfold2 says:

      @goodfold2: also i had 5 homers first two days of week, but none since. now 3-8-2, but i’ll likely lose K’s. best i could possibly do is around 6-7, tied in homers/down 4 rbi’s/down 1 save. drat.

    Trade Possibility in a keeper league w/QS:

    I receive Gio Gonzalez, Scott Kazmir, & Rd. 15 pick in next year’s draft
    for
    Yordano Ventura, Danny Salazar, & 4th round pick in next year’s draft

    Basically it’s a trade aimed at prepping my team for the H2H playoffs by trading out my weakest SP options (Odorizzi is the only other SP I would consider low-end). Is that draft pick spread too much or worth the cost?

        I’m assuming you think it’s overpaying. That’s the problem with this time of the year for the playoff-potential teams in our league as everyone starts to overpay for these late season upgrades.

        I could try to talk him down and narrow the draft pick gap (seems unlikely and he could easily flip Gonzalez and Kazmir to one of my competitors) or I could wait until next week’s Sunday trade deadline and make a last stab at whoever wasn’t moved at a “clearance” discount.

    Hola Grey,
    I’m in a pickle. My pregunta is, “how much is trout worth to me”?
    -I’m in a keeper league which you can keep 2 players year to year.
    -I have Kershaw (who I think I’ll keep), A. Jones and Stanton.
    -I’m currently in 8th place out of 16.
    The guy with Trout has been sending me offers like Trout and smarihdfglhf for Jones, stanton and rizzo (the last one he sent). It’s prob too soon to be playing for next year, but again, how much should I be willing to give for Trout as a keeper for years to come?
    Gracias

    • jef with 1 f says:
      (link)

      @El cuñado: I wouldn’t give him all three of those guys …maybe Jones and Rizzo and then I’d keep Stanton and trout next year…not Kershaw

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        Do agree with Stanton being better keeper…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      If you can only keep two players, why not just trade everyone but Kershaw?

      • El cuñado says:
        (link)

        @Grey: That’s what I’m sayin! I’m semi-inclined to trade my team to have the two best keepers for a long time. I guess the negative is that I’d be taking away from my chances at winning this year by giving up three studs for one. Who would you keep out of those 4 guys if you could ch ch ch choose 2 (Mike S, Adam, Mike T. or Clayton?) Thanks for the advice gents!

        • jef with 1 f says:
          (link)

          @El cuñado: I’d keep Stanton and trout…Mainly because I just don’t trust pitchers to stay healthy

    I made 2 separate trades but in effect:

    Hi Grey et all!

    I need HR’s and RBI in the worst way, 7th and 6th place respectively. My pitching, on the other hand, is on point. Is there anyone you’d trade Sale for right now?

    • paulzone says:

    Drop Rosario for Ramos? Yeah yeah, Rosario is a potential 30 HR guy…i know all that but heck he is doing fuck all and gets benched twice a week and the sample size is big enough (atleast for this year) if you ask me. this is a down year for him.

    • jef with 1 f says:

      @Moscowitz: I dropped him a few weeks ago and haven’t missed his sorry ass

      • Moscowitz says:
        (link)

        @jef with 1 f: well done, i am on the fence with the same decision but i am hesitant. How would you rate D’Arnaud as a Mets Fan?

        I mean there are other options like Vogt, Jaso, Norris, Ramos, D’arnaud,..i really dont have to carry Rosario and his sorry ass any longer. Its an 8 team league. As said, there are options.

    • Grey

      Sure, go for it

      • Moscowitz says:

        @Grey: who would be your pick out of those guys i mentioned above grey? I have 11 moves left so i need to minimize the risk and try to pick someone who i can put in there and leave him for ROS.

    big money league, when springer went down i grabbed calhoun real quick like. this lineup (3 OF 2 util no ci/mi)
    mesoraco
    goldy/pujols
    scooter/alcantara
    andrus
    longo/arenado
    gordon/rios/polanco/a.jones/calhoun/springer (DL)
    would i be better off with
    1. extra catcher while mesoraco is sucking? like ramos/vogt/d’arnaud
    2. different non-catcher than calhoun, like duda/carter/peralta/yelich. i could use some extra homers for sure with springer out. only have 6 this week. (5 on monday-tuesday). damn opp is even getting homers from freakin’ altuve.

    Grey, I ask on this sometime thread hoping you can enlighten me.

    So far today my team is 3 for 23. Here’s the thing. That “3” is from one guy – Yan Gomes.

    He’s 3 for 5 with a HR, 1 run and 2 RBI. The rest of my guys so far – Bryce Harper, Billy Hamilton, Josh Hamilton, Pedro Alvarez, JD Martinez, Nolan Arenado…the rest of these lacking lads have done bupkis! Today Yan Gomes is my savior while the rest of the rest SUCK! What is your Razzball term for such a thing? When the rest of your team blows. But one guy saves the day like Superman. Thanks, kid. Love ya’.

      @Project Merkin: I’d look for someone better than Davis; he could be awesome the rest of the way but you’re paying for name value a little. Rutledge is a good throw-in, though; he might be worth a lot of back to nothing in 2 weeks.

    Grey, you see in Dano’s post how Au Rizz is actually better than Au Shizz?

    Best theory ever (even better than Hutchinson at home)…as soon as you’re about to give up on Zunino, he comes through and you’re forced to ride it out another week…oh well…ZUNINO BOMB!! (Alarm sound, alarm sound)…oh shizz, is the Purge starting? Quick everyone in the chunnel!! (That’s how you cross reference kids!)

    At the very least, adding Jumbo Diaz and Francisely Bueno to my roster lays the foundation for a pretty badass fantasy prison gang.

      @Kid A: from now on we should have francisely replace precisely.

      @Kid A: Jumbo Bueno?

    If I own Koji in 15 team dynasty — in additon to qualls and cishek — would you own tazawa over romo? Lost out on romo’s handcuff and dont want to lose out on koji’s but romo was amazing at one point.

    Thank you

      @Dave: probably better of with a different guy more likely than either to get saves. koji ain’t losing his job. giles or somebody like that probably better.

      @Dave: I was thinking Mujica when you asked over on my article, sorry about that. I’d want Romo. But like MR said, I’d spec on Giles, Ottavino or any other handcuff to a closer that might get moved

    Who do I own for saves speculation: Sergio Romo, Bryan Morris, Dale Thayer, Tazawa or Broxton?

      @MB: not broxton. chapman is neither losing his job nor getting traded.
