I had this lede in my back pocket.  In the fantasy baseball writing world, it’s called ‘the early lede.’  It’s a form of sandbagging.  You know everyone wanted Mike Montgomery in the preseason, but his rotation spot wasn’t confirmed.  So, in March, you write a Mike Montgomery Buy lede like you’re filling in a Mad Libs.  You say how he’s been great/solid/surprisingly awful but will come around.    You can’t believe the Cubs took this long/moved this fast with him.  His rotation spot was all but guaranteed once (pitcher’s name) got injured.  That (same pitcher’s name) wasn’t good anyway and now Montgomery is here to stay for the season/the month/this next start.  So far this year, he has a 61% ground ball rate, which would be the 3rd best in the majors if he qualified, and has a 8.6% swinging strike rate, which would be around the top 40.  Those two numbers give the promise that his strikeout and walk rate aren’t giving yet.  His 2.26 ERA is a bit of a fairy tale in unicorn clothes, but there’s still enough to be encouraged by.  You better get him/have to get him/maybe should get him!  This could be the pickup of the year/maybe a streamer and you better act fast/moderately quick/sometime while you’re still drawing breath.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Mike Zunino – I will not rest until every single one of you has asked at least one catcher question.

Matt Adams – To complete this total metamorphosis by Adams, you know what he needs, right?  To be a contestant on Dancing With The Stars!

Trey Mancini – Fun fact!  There were triplets born in Florida 25 years ago.  The babies were named Trey, Man, Sesame, but the Florida couple couldn’t care for three children so they wished real hard and got Trey Mancini.

C.J. Cron – This is a Hitter-Tron pick, like the pick it makes at Best Buy for electronics it wants to sex up and down with motor oil.

Ian Happ – Does he call how he stands in the batting box, Happenstance?  Because he kinda should.

Howie Kendrick – He’s hitting near .350, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends with an average north of .310.  Over 550 ABs?  Oh heck to the en oh.  Maybe 300 ABs.  Maybe.

Jose Pirela – A real world comparison:  Puck from San Francisco.  Wait, that’s not right.  A real world baseball comparison:  maybe Pirela gives you what you were hoping for from Pillar.  By the way, I noticed Pillar the other day pinch-hitting for Pearce and I looked at Pillar’s stats, and wow.  What happened to that young brother?  I guess Pillar reached his statue of limitations.  C’mon, high five me!  That was good!  No?  Okay.

Austin Slater – He should hit for a decent average, and not much power or speed.  Yes, that’s the headliner at Austin’s Shitty limits.

Matt Davidson – I already gave you a Matt Davidson fantasy.  It was written on the back of a napkin then slid to a hot dame at the bar.

Rafael Devers – Wanna see Prospector Ralph’s eyes light up?  Ask him about Rafael Devers.  It’s like my eyes the moment in every movie when Catherine Keener comes on screen.  You don’t need to tap your tea cup for me, Catherine.  I’m right here.

Dansby Swanson – President Maballtu of my Southern Nad Region would take the northern district that’s an overgrown jungle and trade it for a decent shortstop to put in my MI slot.  Corner men?  Oh, we got them by the dozens.  MIs?  Yeah, so you’re saying Johan Camargo might have playing time?

Marcus Semien – Speaking of SNR’s President Maballtu, Semien should come back soon, which is also what Taillon’s doctor told him.

Ben Gamel – Has been smoldering hot (.430 in the last week), and, if you own him and Matt Boyd, you can change your fantasy team name to, “Yeah, Boyd, He Got Gamel.”

Carlos Gomez – Was a bit surprised to see Gomez available in so many leagues.  No, not because I think he’s great.  I don’t even think he’s good, but he’s been hitting a little bit and I get the sense a lot of people are living two years in the past, and want to own him.

Lonnie Chisenhall – Not much more than a schmotato, and, through forced perspective, Chisenhall will crush your head.

Steven Souza – On our Player Rater, Souza is ranked 65th overall.  Not for outfielders, not for hitters, 65th overall.  Better than Carrasco, Rendon, Darvish, Kris Bryant, Healy and Gary Sanchez.  To name some apples and oranges.

David Peralta – If I’m being straight with you, and all the ladies will tell you it’s the only way I can be, I nearly made Peralta the lede this week, but he’s such a bore to discuss.  A solid, ownable bore, but a bore nevertheless.

Starling Marte – His suspension ends within a couple of weeks, and I fully expect him to return as more or less the same player he was prior.  How much more and how much less is the question though.  Let’s go with comparisons, will he be better than David Peralta for the 2nd half of the season?  I don’t think so.  Will he be better than Polanco?  I’d sure hope so.  By the way, I just watched a two minute clip on Marte’s ESPN player page of a guy and girl discussing his suspension, and I wanted to throw my computer out the window.  ESPN:  The Home of the Hot Take, But Not Too Hot Otherwise You Will Be Fired.

Mallex Smith – Appizzarently, there’s some outfielders to grab off waivers this week.

Matt Moore – This is a strictly Stream-o-Nator call like the call it makes to every adoption agency in the tri-state area to find its biological parents.  Ugh, Stream-o-Nator is so sad!

Pat Neshek – Doesn’t Pat Neshek sound like a woman who would be at bingo pulling up her stretch pants over her FUPA?  No?  Hmm, maybe it’s me.  Neris could be the closer still, but wouldn’t be surprised to see Neshek get some saves for the next month as the Phils build up his trade value.

Huston Street – Recently, the Sciosciapath held a news conference about who would close for the Angels, he said, “Squirrel, Wheat Thins, returned mail,” which was the most coherent the Sciosciapath has been in years.  I’d grab Street, but it could be David Hernandez, Cam Bedrosian, or all three, then Bud Norris returns in about seven days and could take the job right back.  A shituation of the highest order.

SELL

Marcell Ozuna – OZUNA sell?!  OZUNA drink 80-gallon jug of water and OZUNA dragon breath will not stop being fire.  OZUNA mean this from top of heart to bottom of heart and OZUNA heart 17 times bigger than average heart size so top to bottom of heart is huge total area.  OZUNA sell?!  OZUNA let Mothra destroy your house and not attempt to step in.  Men go down in barrels in OZUNA’s tears from seeing himself in sell.  Right now, the top ten for fantasy value looks something like this:  Goldy, Judge, Blackmon, Zimmerman, Trea, Bryce, Votto, Altuve, OZUNA.  You know how I feel about Judge and Zimmerman, but OZUNA is samesies.  He is solid; I like him, but c’mon.  His BABIP is sky high, which has him hitting .325.  His career HR/FB% is 14%, right now, it’s near-30%.  I’m not saying to sell OZUNA for a seashell that says ‘moist’ when you put it to your ear, but I would explore options.

    Hey Grey! Which side do you like in these trades to receive Rizzo (2B in 1 game) in an OBP QS H2H league?

    I trade Strasburg and Harrison

    I receive Rizzo and Stroman

    Strasburg obviously beats Stroman by far . . . but in QS leagues where streaming QS is more important than season long ratios, they each have 10 QS.

    THanks!

    Deep roto – who do you like most ROS between Happ and Boom Boom Mancini? I feel like they each have playing time risk – Happ once Zobrist, Heyward return – Boom Boom once Crash is back.

      Not yet

  10. I’d like to pickup Marte again figuring he was my 3rd round pick. Is Conforto OK to drop at this point, or someone else for Marte? Maybe Maeda since hes headed back to then pen? Thoughts? team below..

    Perez, Rizzo, Trea, Justin T, Story, Stanton, Desmond, Maybin, Duvall Bench-LoMo,Conforto

    Cole, Nova, Severino, McCullers, Peacock, Faria, Maeda, Verlander, holland, Melacon, Maurerer DL-Gray.

    I know he’s in today’s buy but I’m surprised you’re not more in on Mancini. You seem lukewarm on him (yet love Schoop). Kid has raked everywhere and has power and hits for avg. Come next year, I think he’ll be your next Goldschmidt…Freeman..etc. (minus the steals).

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Luigi: did you just say Mancini will be a Goldy? Put the crack pups down, man.

    As usual fantastic stuff. Love the Friday Buy Columns.

    My pitching is good. Want to add Montgomery. Feel he could be this year Duffy.. EROD, Gray or Salazar would be the drop. Salazar has the punch outs.. Not sure if he stays in the pen. EROD was great until he fell LOL and J Gray pitches at coors. UGH..

    Kershaw
    Starusburg
    Pineda
    Samarajza
    Paxton
    Giles
    Robertson

    Bench
    Salazar DL
    EROD
    Gray J

    IF pollock ever gets reactivated I would have to drop one (or keep an extra bench bat and drop a middle reliever):
    Mazara, Schebler, Mallex, Hicks, ODB, Gomez, Souza

    now I kinda like all these guys so what you think? cant lose mallex I need speed bad

    • Grey

      Grey says:

    Not gonna pretend that the Sciosciapath is easy to understand or claim that I have a good read myself. But here was Rotowire’s take…

    “By the time Hernandez entered the game, the Angels had gotten out to a five-run lead to negate the possibility of a save situation. Still, Hernandez kept his foot on the gas and got through four batters on just 15 pitches. That said, had it been a save situation, Cam Bedrosian would have likely taken the hill for the Angels.”

    Bedrosian pitched before Hernandez. In the bottom of the 7th. With the score 8-5 LAA. Am I missing something? Does the Sciosciapath moonlight for Rotowire?

  16. KarlJ says:
    (link)

    12 team 5X5 roto re-draft league.
    I give up Mad Max and receive Goldy. Currently 1st in pitching stats but middle of the pack in offense.
    Would leave me with a staff of Wood, Nelson, Faria, Duffy, Gray & Newcomb which is kind of thin. I can try to expand deal by including Reynolds or Healy and getting back someone like Berrios or Cueto. Limited transactions so streaming not an option.
    Whaddya think?

    Good afternoon mix master grey!! lol sorry I ran out of R kelly quotes!

    Any whoo H2h pts weekly lock league, with the news of schwarber sent to the minors are you dropping him for either one of these? Souza, David peralta, Carlos Gomez, Ian happ (2b/OF), Cameron maybin, matt Adams , moncada, or lastly howie Kendrick (2b/OF)

    I could potentially add two out of this group my other person who I could possibly drop would be drury but I like his triple threat eligibility at OF, 2b & 3b.

    Very surprised to see Monty as your lead Buy after you said this 2 days ago: “I do like Montgomery and would grab him for his next start, but I’m not sold on him long-term yet. His peripherals are surprisingly awful. Way too many walks, way too few Ks.”

    Not exactly a ringing endorsement…and that’s me quoting you! Wouldn’t his K’s (and velocity) be expected to drop even more moving from a reliever to a starter?

    I’m trying to come up with a good trade offer for Cole Hamels since a guy has him coming off the DL and needs hitting.

    What should I offer a guy for ROS (2nd year and cannot be kept after this year) Cole Hamels?

    I have some decent bats and this owner needs HR, RBI, R, and OBP (he’s good on SB) in a 5×5 roto 14-team league.
    My top bats are: $31 Votto, $2 Bellinger, $10 Smoak, 2nd year Arenado, 2nd yr Odor, $10 Choo, $10 Avila, $5 Bregman….

    His best hitters are Cespedes, J.Ramirez, Hicks, Myers, Nunez, Gallo, Salvy Perez, K. Morales, Tomas, Longoria, Tim Anderson, Beltran, & Deshields.

    What should I offer for Hamels?

    • Grey

I’m running 3 RPs this week (Betances, Brach and Doolittle) to try for some Saves/Holds. I have Joe Ross on the bench. I also have a $1 Drew Smyly on my DL.

        Now….knowing what you know about my pitchers do I still stay away from Hamels?

    Hey Grey! Thanks as always for an awesome read, this is the sad trombone part of the week where I wait until Monday for another one of your posts. In a 12T H2H would you prefer adding Matt Davidson as your one bench bat (other bench bat is my increasingly frustrating Amed Rosario stash) or drop the bench bat to add Montgomery as a 6th starter? Lineup is solid, w Altuve, Betts, Blackmon core, my starters are Darvish, McCullers, Manaea, Taillon, Straily. Thanks as always and have a great weekend!

        @Grey: I wear a belt with my jeans, so… yes. Yes I am.

        Check out Pirela’s minor league stats from ’13-’14. Battled injuries the last two years before picking up where he left off this year. Think that allowed him to fly under the radar. I don’t think he’s a total fluke. Looks like a .280/12/20 type of player.

    Excited about Rizzo at 2B and Freeman getting back in a few weeks (hopefully). My dilemma is what you have been pointing out…..tons of CI donkeys. Thin elsewhere…for me my OF is shaky. Trying to trade but league is pretty tight.

    1. Short term….need to pick up a streamer. Who do I drop if I can get McCarthy for Sunday?
    2. Long term, H2H league, playoffs focus. 12 teamer, 24 man rosters. No one cares about 2nd place, so all eyes on August playoffs. In third place currently. Ten hitting cats so guys who walk and do not strikeout have value. Must play 5 OFs and one Util. When Rizzo gets 2B eligibility, my lineup looks like this. Need to cut one for streaming, eventual Freeman return.
    3. Do I actually consider trading Freeman for a stud OF ?

    C-Realmuto
    CI – LoMo, Lamb, Seager,
    MI – Rizzo, Harrison, Simmons,
    OF – Conforto, Schebler, Dyson, Marwin, Melky, Maybin (lots of platoons, ugh)
    Util – Pujols or Owings ( play him in OF too)
    DL – Freeman
    SP – Kershaw, Verlander, Taillon, Nova, Severino, Faria (giving him a few more starts just in case he is Noah – like!)
    RP – Holland, Melancon, Maurer

    Thanks. And I would read your stuff even if I was not a fantasy player! Great way to start the day.

    I have a TOUGH choices to make in a 5×5

    grab Luis Castillo today or wait for a 1 in 6 chance—MINIMUM, depending on how many owners put a bid on getting McCarthy–.after Finnigan returns I have to release McCarthy who I have for the DL’d Finnegan. Then he goes to a “lottery bid in our league”.

    There are (13 teams nl only)
    OR
    I can grab nick Pavetta right now
    OR
    I also can wait for FAAB on homer Bailey.
    Need W and K’s mostly without blowups as I am in first in WHIP and ERA

    WHICH CHOICE TO MAKE?

    12 teamer with only osuna/bedrosian/norris for saves, this is a smart money league where people grab spec guys early, i’ve done badly with mine across season (nicasio/bradley/hoover/soria others), soria/hernandez/glover out there. i’ve saved my last move of the week in case hernandez actually gets save opp (opp’s while being smart about grabbing obvious guys won’t grab guys like hernandez unless a save actually is attempted, which he’s yet to do since norris went down, and it appears norris is back soonish). glover comes off waivers tonight, grab him, at least we knew he was closing when healthy.

    Currently losing 3-9 to a team still starting Trout …

    Winning only a couple hitting cats by a small margin and not much I can control there so looking to win back some pitching cats…

    Losing –
    Wins: 1-2
    Losses: 3-1
    Ks: 28-30
    ERA: 4.55 – 1.48
    WHIP: 1.48 – 0.79
    QS: 1-4

    SO I have 2 adds left for the week so what’s my best use of them?

    1) My opponent has no starts left and has only started 4 SPs all week and of course they all pitched greaaat! Also I’m idiot and didn’t activate McCullers in time and can’t use him today @SEA so my planned starts are the following today and tomorrow…

    Ray vs. PHI (20.8)
    Lynn vs. PIT (4.3)
    Moore vs. NYM (11.1)

    So do I use an add or two to stream any of the following tomorrow?

    Roark vs. CIN (-1.0)
    Miranda vs. HOU (-6.1)
    Hammel vs. TOR (-6.2)
    M. Montgomery @MIA (-12.4)
    T. Anderson @LAD (?)

    2) Another option is to use an add to drop someone for another RP instead? I do have a free DL spot if that matters…

    Street, Hernandez, B. Norris*, Neris, Neshek, Albers, Glover*, Kela, Familia* …

    3) Or I could burn an add to stash one of these injured pitchers in a free DL spot?

    Morton, Rodon, J. Gray, Duffy, A. Sanchez, Karns, etc..

    A two part question. I picked up Murphy in anticipation of Coors goodness for my C position but I also have Hedges. Looks like Murphy may not get as much playing time as hoped & underwhelming in a small sample size. Keep Hedges or roll with Murphy?

    Then with the extra C I drop …is it crazy to pick up SP T Williams for his 2 starts vs TB & SF (both at home) He has a decent WHIP & low 0.5 HR allowed per game. He is not the K machine like we tend to like but in watching him vs the Brewers last time out …he looked like a guy who knows how to pitch.

    Dynasty League offered Julio Urías for Derrick Fisher – what freaks me out is that they knew there was some kind of problem for a long time since he only was pitching 5 innings a game – so not sure what this type of surgery means but this was the offer

    • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
      (link)

      @mrbaseball: i doubt most of that 5 inning stuff was shoulder related. they intentionally kept his pitch counts low is the more likely reason for that. now the fact that he sucked the last couple of starts when before he had been fairly awesome, THAT is probably more telling of when the shoulder was going out.

    1. when braun comes back i’m fairly sure brinson goes down, hold him or fisher in NA slot? gotta think fisher is closer to playing time, plus he’s done better with it thus far
    2. use my last move of the week on barreto (over lowrie he seems injured might not play tomorrow either, even if i need him) or hold or hernandez or glover?

          • ROTO OVERLORD says:
            (link)

            @Eli Man Penguin Boy: I understand what your saying now. You dont think they would move to a DH/platoon 3b role when chap needs a day? You dont move pinder to 2b to do all that bc hes not aprospect, but what does sending barretto down do to a team that needs offense? they have called up everyone it sounds like

            • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
              (link)

              @ROTO OVERLORD: don’t get me wrong he might stay up as backup to all of chapman/semien/lowrie, but if you want to see what that the downside of that might be see brinson’s playing time.

              • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:

              • ROTO OVERLORD says:
                (link)

                @Eli Man Penguin Boy: Brinson will be sent down becuase Braun is coming back, there is no all star pushing for playing time, just semien and nothing else, plouffe being waived also furthers that idea so now there is room at 3b for whoever they decide to move there

        @Eli Man Penguin Boy: I read that as well, and it just doesnt make sense, because I think to the way the CHC call up their prospects and say the same thing, schwarber almora happ contreras, there always up for the weekend and then stay for good. i just think barretto is the same thing, that 7 to 10 days stuff is for the media to keep the pressure off the rookie as he acclimates

    actually adding parker here or just wait and see, every other piece of evidence indicates parker is used like the a.miller role, and even today he only came in when bedrosian looked bad (it’s a whole other problem that bedrosian looked bad). that being said bedrosian did get 3 outs, just that goof ball baseball rule that a strike out isn’t an out if the batter can run to 1st before the catcher throws him out.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Yeah, seems doubtful Parker’s the man

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: earlier in year when it was parker vs jc ram vs hernandez parker didn’t get it then either (even though he was best option stat-wise). hernandez moved farther away from 9th tonight, hell if bedrosian didn’t do badly he’s probably be saddled up right now.

    Considering it, because I have T. Murphy at C and Didi at SS, so I would get major upgrades there. He said he he would take any one of those final three. Should I go for it? Which guy should be my final giveaway?

          @And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers!: peacock owner’s roster doesn’t lineup well at all for this trade, he has too many BN bats and injured SP like me.

          another guy is offering lackey (which is funny since i dropped lackey about 2 starts ago when he was only terrible), what order of lackey/j.ross/shark/miranda (and just leave out which ones if any you’d not do this for) as this guy owns all 4 of these and they are all believable targets i’d think.

    we’re about to probably get a clearer LAA answer (and it’s probably hernandez like thought) here coming up, it is neat to see a team (for real life porpoises not ours) have all of these good RP options, so few do.
