Tim Lincecum missed yesterday’s start vs. the Padres (there goes that 14 K start) and gave way to the Giants big-time rookie pitching prospect, Madison Bumgarner.  Lincecum should be back by this weekend.  A detailed Madison Bumgarner outlook can be found where it says, “Madison Bumgarner outlook.”  (Yeah, still haven’t figured out how to naturally link to something.  I feel like Buzz Bissinger.  Bleh!  What are these things you call links?  Bleh! Actually, that sounds more like The Count.)  So one in for Mad-Bum, and no harm done.  5 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 4 Ks.  I think he can supplant Joe Martinez in the rotation.  He sure as heckfire has a better name… Go with Jose at least, geez.  Bumgarner will have value in all leagues down the stretch if he has a rotation spot.  He’s risky, but in the NL West and with his stuff, well worth a look in mixed leagues.  In keepers, pursue him aggressively.  He’s real and he’s spectacular.  I expect he’ll take the David Price route next year.  Start in the minors, then get the call in June.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Brad Lidge – Prior to getting removed from a save situation for Madson, Manuel said that Lidge will remain the Phils closer.  HA!!!  Sorry.  Lidge hasn’t been a closer in three months.  Are they freakin’ kidding me?  Lidge is pitching like he’s wearing contacts that bear Pujols’s face.  Please, someone tie Lidge to a bed and break his ankles to put him out of his misery.

Alex Gordon – He returns from his Triple-A stint.  A lot has been made of his trip to the minors.  (Because of the minors stint, he’ll be under contract through 2013.)  People are saying the Royals pulled a low move to delay free agency.  Um, and Gordon’s done something to stay in the majors?  At this rate, he may not be a major leaguer by 2013.  Though, February Grey still will probably find a way to talk him up for next year.

Pedro Martinez – 6 2/3 IP, 3 ER.  Not great vs. the Nats, but I would’ve taken it over the roofie-ing I took from Carlos Torres.  Don’t worry, I’ll get to that.

Raul Ibanez – 3-for-4 with 2 HRs yesterday.  I swear, after three months of homer sobriety from Ibanez, I was a twitch away from pulling the trigger on him.  Now, he’s hot.  Someone was looking out for me.  They obviously didn’t care enough to warn me about Carlos Torres.  Fantasy baseball, because every day stress is not enough.

Carlos Torres – 2/3 IP, 5 ER vs. the A’s.  I hate you, Carlos Torres.  I swore off rookie pitchers earlier this year because of a start by Hochevar vs. the A’s.  Why do the A’s hate me?  Someone, help!  I was roofied and I’m hemorrhaging from the A’s.

Julio Borbon – 2 HRs yesterday and a steal.  Someone’s been talking to Drew Stubbs.

Elvis Andrus – 2 steals yesterday.  If you need steals, maybe he’s running now, cause he hadn’t been.

Frank Francisco – 1 IP, 2 ER.  Kazaam!

Nick Swisher – 2 HRs yesterday.  Hitting over .300 in the last seven games with 3 homers.

Evan Longoria – Has 5 homers in the last 8 games and is hitting near .500 in his last seven games.  H2H teams rostering Longoria tip their caps.

Garrett Jones – Hit his 19th homer yesterday.  If I didn’t see it myself, I wouldn’t have believed it, but after Robot Jones hit his homer, he elevated five inches off the ground to allow wheels to slide out from his cleats and he rolled around the bases.

Dustin Pedroia – This might be Scrappy Doo’s first appearance in a daily roundup this year.  Well, anyway, he hit two homers yesterday against the Orioles’ Double-A pitching.

Felix Pie – 0-for-3, and 2 for his last 13.  I think he’s back to being lame.

Carlos Beltran – Returned with a 1-for-4.  Now he has three weeks to hit 35 homers and steal 20 bases.  Or if he just outproduced Angel Pagan, that would be nice, too.

Cameron Maybin – You’re going to hear about every positive thing he does until next year.  Yesterday, he hit a homer.

Nate McLouth – Hit his 2nd homer since he returned.  This is a hunch, but I think he realizes he has three weeks to make his season’s stats look somewhat palatable.

Manny Parra – Left the game with neck spasms.  Manny, you don’t watch the ball off the bat.  That’s how you get a crick in your neck.

Mat Gamel – Was recalled.  But McGehee’s got the corner locked down like Marlo Stanfield.

Corey Hart – Is back from the DL.  He says he wants to steal bases.  I have no idea if he’s lying.  I couldn’t see his eyes through his sunglasses.

Chris Davis – 3-for-4 with a HR in yesterday’s nightcap.  In the, uh, daycap he went 0-for-5.

Michael Brantley – He’s stealing bases.  You know you wanna.  Go ahead, pick him up.

Franklin Gutierrez – Hit his 16th homer yesterday.  The Big FraGu’s having a better year than Carlos Beltran, Grady Sizemore and Josh Hamilton.  Cust kayin’.

Matt Murton – Called up by the Rockies.  Score this a victory for the National Association for the Advancement of Gingy People.  But the NAAGP won’t rest until Murton gets playing time, so there will be a lot of late nights for them.

J.A. Happ – His strained oblique is still vaguely hurting and will miss another start.

Jeff Baker – The pride of Bad Kissingen, West Germany went 3-for-4 yesterday as he hits near .400 in the last week.

Jake Fox – Piniella hates him.  Bobby ScalesSam Fuld?  They sound like the bassist and drummer for the Cubs’ heavy metal band, Quite The Riot.

    this is why razzball is primero

    Tips from “number cruncher” Michael Salfino posted on Yahoo fantasy. I shit you not.

    Now let’s make some recommendations with an eye toward 2010.

    Buy – Albert Pujols(notes), Cardinals: blah blah blah
    Prince Fielder(notes), Brewers: yawn

    Hold – Adrian Gonzalez(notes), Padres: He’s given the Pujols treatment, to Kevin Kouzmanoff’s(notes) benefit. blah blah blah

    Sell – Chipper Jones(notes), Braves: blah blah blah

    FYI razz football has been very insightful too so far

    Thank you Mrs. Aaron Hill for having a baby. With an active Hill, I surely would have been sonovabenched by Ibanez. I, too, was thisclose to cutting Raul on Sunday for pitching help. Decided to let McCutchen go instead. Hooray for good decisions.

    @matthole: What do you have to do to “Buy” Pujols at this point? I played a guy who had the likes of a DLed Beltran, Mike Aviles (yes, that Mike Aviles), and JJ “AAA” Hardy in his starting lineup, and I barely won the H2H matchup b/c of Albert’s sick numbers.

    Grey – All ‘Tran has to do is knock a few homers and ribbies in the next two weeks, in my Yahoo playoffs. It would be especially sweet if he did so against against the dude that traded Carlos to me almost three months, and has been razzing me ever since. That would be in my League championship series. Such dreams of fantasy revenge help me sleep at night…

    I presume that I bench Arroyo @ Col?

    Thanks, as always.

  10. Nick says:

    I wish I had your patience Grey – I dropped Ibaned 3 days ago… right before he got his first homer. I might pick him back up if hes still available.

  11. Lines says:
    (link)

    @Paulie Allnuts – I’ve got Arroyo on the bench as well. If he pitches well, so be it, I’ll just feel that much better about his next start.

    @Grey – Andrus stole those bases just for me last night. Way to go, new guy! Long live the honeymoon period.

    Pedroiaaaaaa Poooooooowerrrrrr!

    @Ja ckie: Stubbs

    @matthole: Thanks! And glad Football is working out.

    @AL KOHOLIC: He suddenly stopped running in the 2nd half. Member when Buster Olney said he’d steal 100+ this year?

    @Paulie Allnuts: I’d bench him.

    @David: Thanks!

    @Carlos Valderamma’s Hair: There’s heaps of them, they’re everywhere! That’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while.

    @Nick: I might not have if it wasn’t a 15 team league.

    @mr baseball: I drafted Brad Lidge and then traded him three weeks later for Ben Zobrist and Ryan Franklin, snitches!

    Hey so I have this Carlos Quentin waste of space burning a hole on my bench in a daily h2h league in the playoffs. I see Carlos Gonzalez on the wire. Should I swap one Carlos for the other?

    Still laughing over the fact that Scrappy Doo went in the 2nd round everywhere this year. He’s basically Marco Scutaro on a good team.

    Robbie Cano goes 6-7 rounds later and what, what?

    I think the Rangers and Giants must have some kind of cabbage-patch that produces endless amounts of freakishly talented pitchers. Every week there’s some baby-faced new guy just killing it…

    Zito is at home versus San Diego. Notwithstanding his recent dominance, his last Zitoesque disaster was at the hands of the offensively challenged Pads! Despite feeling relatively safe this time around, is the match-up one you’d recommend that we steer clear of during our playoff run?

    Do you want to know how it’s possible to be 3rd in HRs yet in the bottom half in R and RBI? Yesterday my team managed to hit 7 HRs, but 6 of them were solo, the other was a 2R.

  29. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @IowaCubs: Swap ‘em. Preston Broadus to you.

    @nmdunkel: I tried to warn people vs. Pedroia. Nolan Ryan’s working that cabbage patch.

    @zombie: I’d start him in most cases. Unless ERA and WHIP were being carefully monitored.

    @DrEasy: Neither?

    @DrEasy: How many Adam Dunns and Garrett Joneses do you own?

  30. stumanji says:
    (link)

    @matthole: Hahaha. Thanks for the insider tip! What a clownshoe.

    @Grey: Don’t forget the Aaron Hills. 14 of 31 HRs are solo donks (14/31=like 50% or something?). It seems like every game he goes 1 for 5 with a solo donk. I really like saying “donk.” Yet he’s 6th in the league in hits?…hitting .286?? Hey Aaron, take a ball 4 here and there and you’d be hitting 20 points higher. It’s science, people.

    Science.

    Napoli is doing nothing for me at C. Should I hang tight for the rest of the season, or should I pick up a FA like Ruiz? Any other catchers worth owning for the rest of the year besides the top guys?

  32. Grey

    (link)

    @Jeff: I’d go with Ruiz. Unless you have some more names that are appealing.

  33. Jeff says:

    Not much available; Kendall, Barajas, Torrealba, Olivo, Pudge.

  35. Maximus says:
    (link)

    @Grey: I agree with Jeff. Napoli has been killing me lately but is anyone else worth it? These are the top guys available: Baker, Barajas, Pudge, ‘Tek, Salty, Kendall, Santos Shoppach, Paulino, Navarro… I know nothing thrilling in the catcher department. I assume to just hang with Napoli but its killing me now that I am in the playoffs.

    i’m still bitter HILL isn’t on my team, i sniped him in 2008, then he hits his head, then in 09 i pass…. dumb dumb dumb

    and next year 2010 he’ll be overrated…. its a vicious cycle

    @DrEasy: my team is 1st in HRs, 1st in Rs, 3rd in RBIs, 2nd in SBs, 3rd in slugging, but last in avg and next to last in obp.

    usually in h2h leagues you want to rack up the counting stats and let the ratios fall where they may, but i needed an 8 game comeback in the final week of the season just to make the playoffs.

  40. Elijah says:
    (link)

    Score one for persistence, I managed to make the playoffs last week of the season by *1 game* after being 35 games under .500 early in the season. My pitching was pretty crappy most of the year but I led the league in HR’s and R’s. Kudo’s to Grey for making me grab CarGo, never woulda made it without him. Shout outs to Chase Utley, Mini Donkey, all my rookie starters (Hanson, Wells, Happ), the Yanks top of the order (Yes I had them all), oh and Andre Ethier. I gotta mention him to stay on Andre Ethier’s Mom’s goodside. I hear just last week she clubbed some guy with a soda during a spirited game of nickel cribbage. Vicious.

    @Stephen: Starts in October, no?

    @BanskyBall: Smith for the hot hitter that could lose PT, Butler for the decent power, average guy, Marte for the power.

    (link)

    @nmdunkel: he’s this years pedroia but he’ll still out perform this years pedroia, how funny is it that me and another buddy talked another owner into keeping Pedroia over Beltran so he’d go back in the draft, and in the end Beltran would have been worse… at least he had an active player with Pedroia.

    For those who revel in others misfortune, I present a Trifecta Ticker Tease as the Rangers wallop the Tribe today 10-0. Those of us who own Kinsler, Davis, AND Cruz have returned from lunch, eagerly check the boxscore and see a combined 1 for 14, 0 RBI, 0 HR, 0 SB, and one goddamn Run. & almost worse than another glaring, the lone run only seems to punctuate the dearth of any additional production! And for all you Esteban German owners out there, you deserve his 5 for 5 day, you bastards. Sorry, just a little bitter and resentful is all.

  62. Steve says:

    @mr baseball: @Grey: The exploding Post-It bges to differ:

    RHP Brandon Morrow was originally supposed to be called up from Triple-A Tacoma to make a start Friday for the Mariners in Texas. Instead, he will pitch for Tacoma with the Rainiers in the Pacific Coast League playoffs against Sacramento. LHP Luke French, who has been hit hard in his last two starts and was supposed to be moved out of the rotation, will instead make the start for the Mariners.

    @Telemachus: He wasn’t good last year in September, but he was the previous years.

    As far as next year is concerned, what do you expect from Josh Hamilton? Will he bounce back or continue to get injured? Would you rather have him or Votto for 2010?

    @DrEasy: Nice

    @Sam: I’d prefer Votto by a hair. He might bounce back, but his injuries are more concerning than Votto’s DL stint earlier this year. Plus, better position.

    Don’t know if this has been already covered but, according to Yahoo:

    *** Dodgers LHP Randy Wolf will miss his scheduled Friday start at San Francisco with elbow irritation. Hiroki Kuroda will take Wolf’s turn.

    (it’s on the game day recap for the Dodgers’ game)

    @Steve: Weren’t you lamenting Gutierrez last night? Looks like he did a little better for you tonight! That’s a base-a-ball.
