Michael Taylor and Keon Broxton are pizza delivery men.  And–Yes, two of them delivering one pizza.  Okay, and you answer the door naked.”  Jim Bowden squints, considering it.  “Can I be riding a Segway?”  “Sure, sure.”  “And you’re saying it’s not erotic?”  “Not traditionally.”  That was a pitch for a Showtime After Dark movie called The Bowden Fluffers.  Before they’re through, they will also pitch it to Skinemax, Spike and NatGeo TV.  Sadly, no one will bite on the Fluffers, pardon the phrasing.  They will say they want to work with Michael Taylor and Keon Broxton again in the future, and rightfully so.  Brucely, I was shocked they were both under 50% owned in ESPN leagues.  I’d usually go on to say something snide here about ESPN leagues, but I get the feeling that we’re thisclose to every fantasy site closing its doors and opening its own video chatroom.  Who would’ve guessed twenty years in the future all journalism professors would be Max Headroom?  Any hoo!  I’m off-off topic.  Taylor has 11 HRs and nine SBs and hitting around .275, and Broxton has 13 HRs and 14 SBs and hitting around .250.  If these numbers don’t immediately grab you like an angry sock puppet that needs its coffee, then you don’t know fantasy value.  On our Player Rater, Broxton is the 24th best outfielder and Taylor the 46th best, i.e., they should be owned in 100% of leagues.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Robinson Chirinos – Let’s talk about what’s really on my mind!  If you’re turned on during a museum tour of a King Tut exhibit, do you have a Mummy complex?  As for Chirinos, he has homers in four of his last five games.

Matt Adams – It took legit six weeks, but it looks like the 1st basemen on waivers finally dried up.  All that’s left is Matt Adams and KY Jelly!  Ew.  I feel like present-day Ted Danson looking back at black-faced Ted Danson and thinking even that’s a bit too far me.

Mitch Moreland – No one loves a schmotato more than I, and Moreland is a ripe for the pickin’ schmotato.  Speaking of which, how do you know when a potato is ripe?  Does it turn brown?  I’m serious, I have no idea.  I’m such a city boy, I should’ve starred in Sweet Home Alabama instead of Reese.

Danny Valencia – Is it just me or do you also call this guy, Valencia Buttercup?  Maybe it’s me.  Any hoo!  Valencia is hitting near-.500 in the last week.  Oh, um, whoa, Buttercup.

Scooter Gennett – I alluded to this other day, you can’t catch me po-po!  Wait, that’s when I was eluding.  The other day I said maybe this is Scooter’s big breakout, which sounds like a Dollar Store Bob The Builder knockoff.

Ian Happ – This Happens often — ugh, no pun, no pun, no pun! — Ian trying to avoid Happening puns…but…am…failing.  Okay, back.  This occurs often (better!), I put a guy in the Buy because he was hot last week, and by the time Friday comes around I think he’s cooled off.  I think this is what Ian Happened here — ugh.

Paul DeJong – With Aledmys sent down, DeJong should get playing time, which is more or less everything nice I can say about him.  He has some power, but will likely strike out a ton and hit for a lousy average.  By the by, someone in an NL-Only league offered me Aledmys for Cozart hours after Diaz was sent down.  This gets me so pissed off.  It’s basically the fantasy baseball equivalent of saying, “I think you’re a stupid jerk off.”

Orlando Arcia – I’m convinced Arcia is going to be a thing at some point in the next two years.  Like a full-on, “Can this guy be a top 20 bat?” thing.  We’re not there yet, or necessarily close, but I’m already excited about drafting him next year and he might be my first 2018 sleeper.

Tyler Wade – Between Tyler Wade, Tyler Austin and Dustin Fowler, it’s like all the Yankee prospects are a game of telephone.

Ketel Marte – Fun fact!  When Marte is ordering a vodka, he just holds up one finger.

Franklin Barreto – I just gave you my Franklin Barreto fantasy.  It was written while watching the Hulu documentary, Batman & Bill.  Can’t recommend this doc highly enough, and I’m not into comic books at all.

David Peralta – On our Player Rater, Peralta is the 38th best outfielder.  He’s owned in 43% of ESPN leagues.  It gets better, though.  He’s owned in 100% of Razzball Commenter Leagues.  Eat a D, ESPN!

Joc Pederson – I know, we’ve been here before, but it’s time to get back in the Joc like a junk collector.

Nick Williams – Being called up by the Phillies, or as they will now be called, the Philliams.  Williams will likely be on the strong side of a platoon with Nava and Perkins.  Speaking of which, the java at Perkins Restaurant?  It’s trucker speed disguised as coffee.  Prospector Ralph said of Williams, “Short guy, wrote ‘We’ve Only Just Begun,’ and–”  That’s when I specified to him I meant Nick Williams and not singer-songwriter, Paul Williams.  PR said of Nick Williams, “Super athlete, batting practice hero, some power, some speed, all contact, no approach.  Never walks.”  In Triple-A, he had 15 HRs, 5 SBs and a .280 average.  That’s hiding the 29% strikeout rate and 5% BB rate.  That means, he could get hot, but he could also hit .205.  Definitely worth a flyer in all leagues, but don’t drop anyone too good.  Anyway, here’s some more players to–Wait, I’m in the middle of the post.

Curtis Granderson – About a month ago, I told everyone to sell Conforto.  I took no pleasure in it, but Conforto was playing way above his head.  I don’t think you can even sell Conforto anymore, other than throwing him in a trade.  Grandy is correlated to Conforto, because he’s stolen his freakin’ lineup spot with his hot hitting.

Randal Grichuk – How much power can Grichuk muster if Grichuk keeps mustering power?  I don’t know about muster, but he looks Gulden’s.  What?!  That was good!  No?  Okay.

Tommy Pham – I’m having one of those years in Tout Wars where everything I touch turns to gold.  I’m currently in first by 17 points, and in an Only league that’s a lot of points.  With that in mind, I own Pham.

Sam Dyson – This is the first time in a while I can remember owning a closer replacement in a league where I really need saves and hoping it’s a different guy who I don’t own.  I have Dyson, and I’m praying to the Fantasy Baseball Overlord that Hunter Strickland becomes the fill-in for Melancon.

Bud Norris – He’s my guess for most saves the rest of the year in Anaheim Is 40 Minutes South Of Los Angeles.  It could be five or six other guys, so I wouldn’t put much down on Norris’ Pass Line.

Trevor Rosenthal – Lot of exciting new guys getting saves this week, huh?  Well, in fairness to Norris and Rosenthal, when you put Dyson on top it’s hard to bounce back from that, but Norris and Rosenthal aren’t exactly Aroldis and Kimbrel.  You couldn’t make a $12 Salad from these three with 48 twenty-five cent side salads from McDonald’s.

Zack Wheeler – This is a Stream-o-Nator call like the call it makes to 1-800-Contacts and asks, “Would it be okay if I put your information in my iPhone contacts?”

Rafael Montero – Another Stream-o-Nator call.  Why so much love for the Mets this weekend?  They’re home and the Phils’ offense looks like it’s being coached by Fulio Janco, who is a Julio Franco imposter.

SELL

Jay Bruce – I know!  It’s the broad side of the barn Sell.  It’s like saying to an 8-year-old, “Is that a diamond in your nose?  Oh, no, it’s snot.”  It kills every time.  Just as a 2nd half of the season kills Bruce every time.  Last year, he hit .226 in the 2nd half.  Year before, .199.  Year before that, .201.  I don’t care how good he looks this year.  He has 20 HRs right now with a .266 average.  Anyone wanna take the bet he finishes with more than 32 HRs and a .240 average?  Anyone?  I didn’t think so.  Granted, I’m asking these questions to my dog, Ted, and his giant plushie, Lambchop.  I’m glad in our house LC no longer stands for Lauren Conrad.  I wouldn’t trade Bruce for a free steam with a group of Japanese businessmen, but I would explore options.

    21IP 20K 2BB 2ER

    he got racked against Nats (and they are up next) for 8 runs and 3Hrs but no walks 6ks

    have you seen him throw recently?
    or have you seen anything to think he may have figured out how to control the crazy (pitch) again?

    SON hates him

    would you drop owings for happ at 2B (weekly lineups pts league, most interested in HR, run, rbi, not so concerned about SBs, avg or Ks) ?
    Rizzo is one crazy joe maddon shift away from qualifying at 2B in yahoo so hopefully it’s just going to be for the next week or 2

        For sure, most likely a starting pitcher to stream.

    Is there anything in Anthony Rizzo’s peripherals that suggest we e should be selling him in a keepers league ? I’m currently in 4th place with an okay team so I kinda need to target pitching and some hitting.

    Josh Reddick needs more love!

    He has a 1.050 OPS in the last month with attainable peripherals. He is on his way to another Gold Glove too, so he’s going to stay a fixture in Houstons lineup.

        @Grey: Play on Prima Nocta, e.g., “Before my trade for Jonathan Villar processed, his former owner exercised his right to Prima Knockta and got credit for Villar’s 2 home runs!”

    Trea Turner? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Son of a beesting…he WAS single-handedly winning multiple categories every week for me. Who to pick up in his stead? Went with Josh Harrison, but Gyorko, Cozart, Arcia (highlighted above) and Sogard are sitting out there. Also could be sneaky and go pick up Rosario. Thoughts?

    Thanks Grey!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d try Arcia for lightning in a bottle

  28. Ryan says:

    Need K’s this week for my h2h league, so I’m pretty much throwing every pitcher on the wire at him. Want to pick up one more, so who would you go with:

    Clevinger vs @Det
    T. Williams(PIT) vs SF
    T. Ross vs @CWS

    Bonus if the guy gets a W too.

    Thanks!

    Shallow redraft league.

    Need a fill-in for Bryant and Moustakas is on waivers.

    A few days ago I dropped Odor for Drury, then dropped Drury for Schoop.

    With Turner also going down I dropped him (I know, too soon) for Hernan Perez. I’ve held onto Villar and he’s now my only real source for steals and I’m in first in SBs.

    I’ve had Thames for a couple of weeks just riding the pine, and I’d like to do the same with Odor, but I’d still need a 2B.

    So the question is…

    Drop Schoop, H Perez, Thames or Villar for Odor and/or Moustakas?

    Thanks in advance.

    So I just read a NY Post article saying Trea Turner was already a fantasy bust before the draft because of his “lofty” predicted stats making him a first rounder: 15-20 HRs and 70 SBs and a .300 average.
    Turner’s stats in 68 games: 7 HRs and 35 SBs and with his recent surge a .300 avg wasn’t out of the question. He was also on pace for over 100 runs. Prorate and it looks like he had the homers, SBs and everything else he was drafted for.
    Granted, it was a rough ride early but in Roto who cares? Ridiculous. (sorry for the venting)

    – Use a 1 waiver to stash T.Turner for playoffs?(end of sept)
    – Own Britton, Cuff Brach? Brach was just dropped (early IMO)
    – C.Santana or Yonder?
    – C.Dickerson or Avisail?

    2-catcher 14-team league….I have Tom Murphy, Russell Martin and Alex Avila. I have one bench spot. Avila is on it this week (homered Tues) and Murphy isn’t doing much…should I keep Murphy and Martin active and keep shopping Avila or just drop one of these 3 and look for something more interesting on the WW (Schimpf, L.Garcia, Forsythe, Kepler, Marisnick, Mauer, Joyce, Schimpf, M.Franco, etc.) to occupy my bench?

    the diaz for cozart is literally the non-fantasy example of somebody coming up to you and trying to give you a dollar bill for like a ten or a twenty and if you get upset they pretend you shouldn’t be offended.

    lost treat urner, unlikely to make playoffs in this 12 teamer h2h with OBP over AVG, total bases/hits/losses added (don’t ask i took over comishing this league but won’t be next year as the co-owner of the team owned by previous comish welched on a bet while using the ex-comish as a reference before i accepted betting with him and also leveraged the veracity of the league itself to get the bet down, now he refuses to pay and the ex-comish washed his hands of it. i’m down with wastes of DNA like that, if i was in the gangster world this would be a murderable offence bet welching as a gambler)

    C hedges
    1B au rizz
    2B odor (if he can turn it around i might not miss playoffs from urner)
    SS story (even more so here)
    3B lamb
    OF (3) d.peralta/souza/braun
    util (2) hernan/gomez
    BN c-sant/brocktune
    DL treat urner
    NA (1) fisher (might grab devers, sounds more likely to get useful at bats soon, rosario gone)
    SP carrasco/quintana/paxton/faria/folty/nova/meyer/rodon
    carmart/straily/chacin/j.garcia
    RP (room for 4) norris/bedrosian/strickland/osuna
    DL black sab (NYY sounds healthy now)

    garcia is first dropped, his lucky streak has ended and now i’ll go back to trusting SON on him. chacin in similar boat but he’s been quite solid (my ass SD is “neutral” park now)

    best bat add for this roster (in theory i should be near average in steals with odor/gomez/brocktune/braun/hernan but i’m guessing just under now without urner), could use power though.
    gallo/davidson/chisenhall (for HR)
    lowrie/dejong (for positions, albeit lowrie/dejong lately get a LOT of bases per at bat)

    • jason batteiger says:
      (link)

      @jason batteiger: should read the non-fantasy example would be mine above when compared to somebody trying to sell you diaz (in minors) for cozart (just as he’s getting healthy)

    Can only add guys when you lose someone to the DL or minors. Forsythe has been the worst but seems to be picking it up. Reyes has been pretty bad too but is 2nd on my team in SB. Frazier’s been slumping for a month and may lose PT to Marte, but his position eligibility and AVG/R are a nice fit on my team.

    On the pitching front, is Happ worth holding just to see if he recaptures that magic or is he a streamer?

        -mejia CLE best catching prospect in minors
        -collins WSOX another top 3 ralph catcher prospect might move to 1B due to defense but is also likely first up due to WSOX not caring about catcher defense in past with promotions
        -c.kelly – another top 6 type prospect catcher, probably the best defense, but molina blocked and probably farthest off, is hitting VERY well, better than expected
        – calhoun awful defense, awesome all around bat, at least top 15 overall
        – adames top 50 SS prospect
        – y.mendez TEX’s top SP prospect, mid-rotation upside at best though, barely a top 100 guy in march, ralph thought might be up this year later

    Looking for SP depth in my 10 team, H2H league with OBP. Someone just offered me deGrom for Daniel Murphy. What you think? I have 2B depth with Rizzo soon, Segura and Taylor. Accept or counter with someone else? Who do you feel is fair for deGrom straight up? Here’s my offense:

    C – Gary Sanchez
    1B – Anthony Rizzo
    1B/2B – Daniel Murphy
    3B – Josh Donaldson, Anthony Rendon
    2B/SS – Jean Segura
    OF – JD Martinez, Khris Davis, Corey Dickerson
    1B/OF – Ian Desmond
    2B/3B/SS/OF – Chris Taylor

    I dropped Quintana after a couple of horrific starts and velocity loss….and some advice. Of course, He has looked good last couple outings so my impatience may have cost me a key starter. I own Verlander. Seems like a similar story. 12 teamer, H2H. Dump Verlander or wait?

    1. Now that Texas is a closer by committee. 12 team daily with category for holds and one for saves. I have Bradley Harris Edwards jr giles rivero bush. Would you cut bush for kela rosenthal Kelly, kahnle, or hold? If I’m cutting can you rank the top 2 pick ups?

    2. Do you think Frazier will stay up in NY? Would you cut either Haniger or Mancini for him? My roster will be locked as I have nobody to cut when Duffy is activated so if Frazier doesn’t stay up I will be playing short a hitter.

    3. Would you rather Arcia over Haniger or Mancini?

    can’t believe dyson’s looked ok for 2 straight innings (had that even happened this year yet?). i’m sure bochy is giggling that his near punt play clearly intended to get him trade value is working thus far. anyhoo, with sab back gotta drop one of these in saves only i have
    osuna/norris/bedrosian/strickland/kela. has to be bedrosian or strickland.
