Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

Hello, Nick Castellanos, see you soon, maybe, yeah, no, okay.  Great to meet you, Dylan Bundy, eventually.  What do you know it’s, Mike Zunino, maybe at some point in the near future.  What’s up, Billy Hamilton, hey, aren’t you supposed to be fast?  What’s taking you so long?  Is that Oscar Taveras…Oh, it’s Willy Taveras eating nachos out of a dwarf’s sombrero.  What about that number one prospect guy that the Royals traded so they could be a .500 team?  What’s his name again?  Something Byers.  Or is it Jon Cryer?  HBO Signature Loves Playing Radio Flyer?  Wil Myers!  That’s it.  Let’s compare him first to a guy that he’s nothing like, shall we?  Cool, thanks for indulging.  What a mensch, you are!  Jurickson Profar was called up and has played about as well as expected.  Is there any league where you can’t do without him?  Sure, maybe in a deep AL-Only league where you lost Kinsler or were starting Marwin Gonzalez.  In most mixed leagues, Profar has been good but replaceable.  At some point in the near future, Profar’s going to use the world to wipe his butt.  He’s not going to wash his hands and then run them down our country’s shirt with his profound badassery.  That day probably isn’t that far off.  Right now, he’s good, I’ve seen better, I’ve seen worse for mixed leagues.  Compare him to Jean Segura if you like.  Segura was nice when he came up last year, this year he’s dining with Jay-Z while shushing Blue Ivy.  Now, like I said, Wil Myers isn’t a Profar comparison when it comes to their stats, but everything else I said there could apply.  Myers is holding his own in Triple-A so far this year (10 HRs, .276) and could be called up in about three weeks.  Now would be the time I’d stash him in all leagues.  The moment he’s called up it will be like The Day the Earth Stood Still only Hitter-Tron will be saving all the ladies.  I’d cautiously expect him to see 80% of starts after being called up, and numbers around 30/14/35/.280/4.  That’s probably a tad optimistic, but what fun is there in dour?  Those numbers could also be had in three months from, say, Alfonso Soriano‘What fun is there in dour’ then you drop Soriano?  Sorry, Random Italicized Voice, we’re not seeing a Trout this year and I’m just being honest.  What are you, Abe Lincoln?  Lie to me!  Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Gerrit Cole – Speculation is running wildfire like a wild, uh, fire that the Pirates are bringing him up on Tuesday.  Scott, our prospect writer, said, “Cole is one of a handful of prospects who project as a true big league ace, and he figures to help across the board in fantasy.  PICK HIM UP, caps are for Grey since he’s cross-eyed.”  Hey!  No, I’m not.  Either way, I do agree with Scott.  About the first part.  He’s going to be an ace, grab him immediately!

Nick Castellanos – Since I mentioned him in the lede, I figured I’m reach around on him again…Um, that’s not what I meant.  Feliz Castellanos a Buy?  Si.  Poquito.  Garcia and Dirks no juego so good.  I haven’t gone over Castellanos much, and only am now because the Tigers are considering promoting him.  He looks like he could be middle infielder in the outfield, which would be a great movie starring Yunel Escobar, Jhonny Peralta and Danny Glover.  I’d expect around 7-10 homers, 3-5 steals and a solid average from Castellanos, assuming he’s playing every day.  And when we assume you make an ass out of you and Ming the Merciless.

Josh Reddick – Since his return from the DL, Reddick is hitting balls hard…Hehe… Sorry, what?  I’m so juvenile.  Back that thang up!

J.D. Martinez – Fun fact!  When Martinez was named by his Dad after he saw him emerge from his mother’s vagina, he named him Just Damn!.  There’s an actual exclamation mark in his name, but has been shortened to periods, and, uh, J.D.  I’m dropping truth on you this week.  Martinez is hitting near .300 in the last week with a homer and a steal.  I’ve seen better, I’ve seen worse, I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end.

Ben Revere – SAGNOF, snitches!

Cameron Maybin – I just went over him this afternoon.  Scroll down a little.  A little more.  Oh, yeah, right there.  (Shh, don’t tell anyone that this morning I said I’d go over Maybin now.  He’s a light power, light average and solid speed guy.  You know, that’s so Maybin!)

David Murphy – I just thought of a perfect comparison to trying to get you to pick up David Murphy.  But I’ve decided not to tell you.  Kidding!  What else am I gonna do with it?  Save it for my death bed and have it be my Rosebud?  Trying to get you to pick up David Murphy is like trying to get a kid to eat his vegetables.  They’re boring, they taste like crap, they don’t have any high fructose like a young rookie call-up unless Paula Dean is making them, but they’re good for you.  Eat your vegetables!

Chris Coghlan – He’s asparagus.  Nothing exciting here, but he’s currently hot and will make your urine (almost stutterer!) smell funny.

Scott Van Slyke – I stumbled on brilliance the other day.  With your blessing, I’d like to copy and paste it here.  No blessing?  Geez.  You’re tough.  Okay, well, it was something like Van Slyke reminds me of Ludwick before pitchers figured out how to pitch him.  And that’s me paraphrasing me!  Look up Ludwick’s 2007 numbers if you’re not excited yet.  Now?  How about now?  …Now?  Okay, I’ll let you have some time.

Nick Franklin – He’s hit in all but two games since his call-up and has 2 homers and 2 steals.  Power and speed-wise, that’s better than Profar, who has about a week on him.  Absolutely ridiculous to think Franklin gives two homers and two steals a week  for the rest of the season, but if you can’t come to Razzball and get ridiculous, where can you go?  If Franklin stays with that 2/2 pace every week, he’ll have a 20/20 season.  No, don’t trade Brandon Phillips for him, but do pick him up.  BTW, our rest of the season Player Rater doesn’t look too kindly on rookies and hates Franklin.  Brucely, I don’t care.

Mike Aviles – Due to Asquadrubal’s injury, Aviles will see the bulk of time in the Indians’ infield.  Real World comparison:  Aviles = a healthy Jeter with less runs.  Another real World comparison:  Nia is batshizz crazy.  The Real World: Portland should’ve been The Real World:  Steel Cage Match.  Member how back in the day on The Real World producers would rush in to stop fights?  Now, they’re pouring flames on them.  “This person doesn’t like that person, so let’s put dog crap right under where this person is about to sit.”  You know that’s what went down prior to the blow up.  Weaves getting pulled off, someone Googling “purity” and the least likable person without a hand since the guy from The Fugitive.  Shizz is nuts, yo!

Zack Cozart – What’s funny in a non-funny way, by the time we get to Friday’s Buy column, Cozart is already cold again.

Omar Quintanilla – The horny robot that is the Hitter-Tron loves him some lubed gaskets and Quintanilla this weekend, though less so today.  BTW, if you’re not using the Hitter-Tron you’re doing it wrong.  It gives you every match-up for the next week and a prediction on how well everyone will do.  It’s basically Grays Sports Almanac.

Chris Johnson – He took full-time duties at 3rd base, but so far he’s homophoning duties.  I expect he’ll get hot again at some point, and a decent guy for counting stats.

Anthony Rendon – I recently went over my Rendon fantasy.  I wrote it while massaging a large woman’s foot.

Adam Lind – I wrote a two line poem for him.  Here goes, who’s the hottest schmotato in the land?  It’s gotta be Lind.  So, it doesn’t rhyme; I took poetic license.

Ryan Doumit – In the last week, he has 4 homers and a .333 average.  Okay, so he’s not exactly Domonican, but it’s pretty good.

Jason Castro – The best thing that happened to one of our teams was Jesus Montero being sent down so we could grab Castro.  He’s hitting over .350 with 4 homers since then.  That team is obviously not doing well.

Joe Smith – It’s a poor week to be vulturing saves.  (Please let a closer I don’t own get injured tonight and please let me be near a computer so I can grab his backup.)

Luke Gregerson – Should see all the saves in San Diego until Street returns after Thayer botched any chance last night.  As Seth Smith would say, thay on, Thayer.

Zack Wheeler – Is he up yet?  If not, can we send one of our commenters to beat up Dillon Gee?  *elevator door opens*  “Dillon, hi.  I’m T Moore.”

Michael Wacha – He looked like hot garbage left under the seat of your car in his last start, but I still like him.

Tyler Skaggs – Also, under-the-seat hot garbage last time out.  In a match-up that featured both him, Wacha and me screaming obscenities at my iPad screen.  Skaggs in the NL West will have plenty of juicier match-ups like his next one vs. the Giants.

Tony Cingrani – Get him while the gettin’s gettin’ Cingrani!  See, what I did there?  I have no idea either.  Is it lunch yet?

David Phelps – I like him in the big picture, but this is more for his next start at Seattle that gets the Stream-o-Nator‘s nod of approval.

Rick Porcello – After not liking him for about three years, it’s weird for me to be recommending Porcello so much, but remember he’s only 24 years old and the Tigers called him up when he was way too young.  Trial by fire led to conviction by insanity of an overeager management team.  He’s being re-tried and… Rehabilitated?  Well, now, let me see.  You know, I don’t have any idea what that means…I know what you think it means, sonny.  To me, it’s just a made-up word.  Like schmohawk or yawnstipating.

SELL

Gio Gonzalez – He wasn’t officially named in the reports about who could be suspended because some players were using South Beach for illegal drugs and not just whoring and clubbing.  But he’s not right, all the same.  His K-rate is down with his velocity and his walk rate is up.  I don’t think he’s hiding an injury, but I do think he’s closer to a 3.75-4 ERA pitcher this year than the under-3 ERA guy we saw last year.  Right now, he looks like the Yovani we thought we were getting in the preseason, which is a decent #2, but if anyone has designs on him being a number one, I’d put on my pith helmet and explore offers with NatGio.  Or at least look at the pretty pictures.

Ryan Braun – Unless you have a leaguemate in your league that’s been in a coma for the last week, you’re not going to get first round value for Braun.  If you do have a leaguemate who’s been in a coma, do you really think now is the time to be trading with him?  So, Braun cheats.  Big whoop.  I don’t care.  I once plagiarized a Whitney Houston song for a final exam about the measures I’d take for a better educational system.  The class was boring and I had some weed to smoke.  You do what needs to be done.   Unfortunately, like myself, Braun was caught.  I got off with a C-, because the teacher said, “It is important to show the children all the beauty they possess inside and give them a sense of pride.”  Also, like me, just because Braun’s named it doesn’t mean he’s going to be suspended for 100 games starting tomorrow.  MLB doesn’t have urine samples and this thing could drag on for months.  I’m more worried about how Braun looks right now as he plays.  According to our Player Rater, he’s been about as good as Gordon, Bruce and Markakis, to name a few.  He’s nowhere near the top of the pops, Robbie Williams.  I’d see what I could get in a trade for him before the news gets even worse.  I wouldn’t just trade him for a Hypercolor sweatshirt.

      Thanks!

  4. Randy BoBandy says:

    I have to throw this in there.

    Jays to sign Wang…so they now have Wang, Dickey, and Johnson. Has there been a more phallic pitching staff in MLB history?

      • zzzzzz says:
        (link)

        @Grey: They need to trade for Wood and they’d be complete.

        • @zzzzzz:

          I have all of those guys except Wang, plus I also have Jack-Job Hardy.

  5. Andrew says:

    thoughts on matt kemp? any word on his injury?

    i’ve been offered KEMP/BRUCE for my Greinke/GIANCARLO…… waited all this time on Giancarlo i hate to sell off on him before he debuts for another DL’d player!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Tony: I’d hold

  7. Andrew says:
    (link)

    10 team roto where you keep 8

    9th place team traded Cano (unkeepable) for Pence ($8 next year) and Griffin ($4)

    how bad do you think this trade is? Griffin can probably be bought for a similar amount is my thinking.

      • Andrew says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        this guy won the league with two trades like this last year. How do I prevent other people from doing this again?

          Grey says:

          Find a new league?

  8. Gray Elbright says:

    Reddick Nava Maybin or Cingrani. Need some steals. Also

    James Loney or Adam Lind. I may or may not have asked this question like 6 times.

  9. The Thumb says:
    (link)

    Can you please rank ROS? Cole, Fernandez, Wheeler, Wacha, Cingran, Skaggs

    Thanks!

  10. diaperman says:
    (link)

    Would you drop any of the following for Gerrit Cole in a 12-team mixed? .. Ubaldo Jimenez, Jose Fernandez, Jon Neise, or Francisco Liriano

    Thanks in advance

  11. FillyP says:
    (link)

    1) Drop Weeks for Alcides Escobar? Funkin’ platoons…

    2) Drop Straily and/or Kluber for anyone out of this group? Norris, Ubaldo, Stults, Hammel, Tillman, Chatwood, Hughes, Turner, Gausman, Danks..

    Happy Friday!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @FillyP: 1) Yes 2) These are all streamers…

  12. brett says:

    I was offered James Shields for Ryan Braun. Can I really sell that low?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @brett: Bit too low, but I’d use that trade to do better

  13. Sparky8 says:
    (link)

    Drop Tillman or Straily for Cole in a Pitcher heavy 16 team mixed?

    • Sparky8 says:
      (link)

      @Sparky8: 7 x 7 H2H plus HLDs and K/BB

  14. LJ says:
    (link)

    Would you drop Wacha or Wood for Cole?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @LJ: Wood

  15. stumanji says:
    (link)

    Is Maybin a strong bean? For some reason I always group Fowler and Maybin together. Is that racist? Bee tee dubya, I just traded Fowler & Rafael Soriano for Cespedes in a keeper. Leaguemates think I gave up too much but I’m pretty happy about it. I gave up a good closer but I still have a bunch of NoFacers in Janssen, Brothers, and League (also own Kenley for insurance) so I think I’m still aiiight there.

    In my other keeper league, I now own JoFer, Wheeler, Cole, Puig, and Franklin. My team is gonna be sick in 2017, yall!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @stumanji: Haha… No, he’s not… Less power than Fowler… Might be sick next year…

  16. ZDC says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey. In a 10 team H2H, would Choo for Samardzija be fair trade? I could really use the pitching. I’d have Stanton to replace Choo. Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @ZDC: Fairish, I’d want more

      • ZDC says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Would Pence for Samardzija be a better offer? The problem is that everyone in this league either over values or under values players. Kinda hard to make trades.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I’d take Samardzija…

  17. Gray Elbright says:
    (link)

    would you tade Zack Wheeler for Ev. Cabb?

  18. Jangles says:
    (link)

    so if you keep one, Myers or Soriano? Thanks have a terrific weekend!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Jangles: Myers, thanks you too!

  19. Andrew says:
    (link)

    Ogando or Liriano? Who do you like more?

  20. Shin-Soo Choo Choo says:
    (link)

    Not that it’s likely he’ll accept, but I’ve offered Puig for Braun. Bad idea?

  21. Remy says:
    (link)

    What you think of giving up Jupton and Lester for Jennings and Cliff Lee for someone who will probably lose Everth Cabrera, league counts K/BB as well

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Remy: Upton side

  22. ashtray says:
    (link)

    12 team H2H cats 7×7 (includes Ks/OBP & Ls/QS)

    I’ve been rolling Russel Martin out there every night and everyone in the league is hoarding catchers.

    Thinking of trying to trade for a Mauer/Posey/Santana/Wieters for one of my pitchers.

    Which one of those C’s should I target and who would you offer up out of Lynn, Harvey or Miller?

  23. Obmij76 says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey, drop Arencibia for Castro? BB are a category

  24. Zach says:
    (link)

    What do you think about Carlos Gomez? Should I sell high or can he be valuable the rest of the season? How does he compare to Yoenis Cespedes?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sell high, Yoenis is much better

      • Zach says:
        (link)

        @Grey: So what about Darvish and Gomez for Cespedes and Cobb?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          That’s a lot with Darvish… Gomez and Donkeycorn? Gomez and a mid-tier 1st or 3rd baseman? Darvish is too much even with Cobb coming back…

          • Zach says:
            (link)

            @Grey: What about Bumgarner or Ryu? My pitching is solid so I can take a hit there. Maybe Garza? Thanks for your help.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              @Zach: Ryu would work

  25. weezy says:
    (link)

    Ryan Doumit – .333 avg and 4 homers, sure beats a shiva call. what happened Grey? which brings me to my question. I picked up Doumit intending for it to be a 1 night stand but now we’re married and I’ve got Sal all jealous. Who gets the ring for the ROS in a H2H league?

    Also, a corny suggestion for future buy/sells. add a “Greydar” section for guys we should admire from afar. ex: Mr. SAGNOF himself, Billy Hamilton may find his way up pretty soon. He’s on my Greydar.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Perez… Maybe, we’ll see…

    I trade Aoki/Franklin for Ian Desmond or should I want more?

    Franklin is my only SS b/c of Rutledge

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d want Desmond

  27. Wudaben says:
    (link)

    Would you take Cole over Tillman or Cashner if you only had 10 pickups left on the season? My roster is pretty set do I don’t need many but just looking for high upside pickups.

    Also.. Different league, would you take Myers over Puig?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Hold on Cole… Puig over Myers…

  28. dsimon says:
    (link)

    League mate with Kemp hates him and wants to sell. I could offer Braun…

    Thoughts on that at this point?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d take Kemp

    @grey is cole up for just a spot start ? might be a waste of a move for ppl

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      They wouldn’t bring him up for one start

  30. Alky Sobrera says:
    (link)

    Just a heads up, looks like Cole is about to debut on tuesday. Solid time for a buy post!

    • Grey

      Yup

      @Alky Sobrera:

    (link)

    I was thinking this was gonna be a good trade but maybe not according to your buy/sell but guy offered me braun for segura/J. Zimmerman leaves me not really any shortstop and I would need to fill some pitching I’m thinking no after reading your column correct? Also trying to get a high k pitcher one guy has scherzer and samarja I’m not looking up how to spell his name if I gave mccutchen for either one of them paired with machado or joey bats fair or no? or maybe bruce straight up for the shark? thanks for all your help this is 12 team 7×7 mixed league.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d want Segura

      • The Dredd Pirate says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks grey I figured also I picked up wheeler and cole plus my staff is already Price, Latos, Zimmerman, Dickey, Ryu you think one of them works out so my staff is solid enough or go after Scherzer or The shark?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Hopefully, but they’re high risk and high reward.. . I own Wheeler, Cingrani, Cole and Wacha… I’m hoping to get two guys out there…

  32. Watson says:

    Zobrist or Frazier ROS? Thanks.

  33. dsimon says:

    Also, can you rank these 3 for OPS leagues:

    Morse, Myers, Soriano

    • dsimon says:
      (link)

      @dsimon: As in, should I drop Morse or Soriano for Myers?

    • Grey

      Myers, Soriano

  34. Ben says:

    I still can’t figure out the Anthony Rendon hype. All I see is a meh power, no speed guy with a high walk rate that’s had a whole lot of good luck in the minors.

      Morse

  37. Hey Grey –

    Cole or Wacha?

    thanks!

      @Sixto Lescano: Cole (asked above). Swisher (just assuming).

    Thanks Grey – I’m in first thanks to your advice so I don’t have many needs. My weakest bats are SS and C, which are the best places for weakness. I’m just trying to maybe upgrade a bench bat for something better. My team:

  50. chillmodious says:

    Sorry, Grey… I need to go full roster on you to help with a major space problem I’m having on a super-stacked team:

    C – Sal Perez
    1B – Prince Fielder
    2B – Martin Prado
    3B – Manny Machado
    SS – Elvis Andrus
    MI – Ian Desmond
    CI – Paul Goldschmidt
    OF – Adam Jones
    OF – Jay Bruce
    OF – Desmond Jennings
    OF – Shin-Soo Choo
    OF – Brett Gardner
    Util – Allen Craig

    Bench – Michael Morse
    Bench – Asdrubal Cabrera (on DL but no room)

    DL – Giancarlo Stanton

    SPs – Zimmermann, Samardzija, Harvey, Cobb, Tim Hudson, Peavy (on DL but no room)
    RPs – Holland, Wilhelmsen, Perkins, Parnell

    DL – Huston Street

    ———————————-

    So… four DL-eligible players, but only two slots. Giancarlo will be back Monday, so that means I can flip Peavy to the DL. I’ll still need to swap a hitter for a pitcher. I asked above about dropping Morse or Asdrubal and you went with the latter. 1) With the benefit of seeing the entire lineup, is Asdrubal still the one who goes, or someone else? 2) Whomever I drop will be exchanged for a SP, and my available options there are Cole, Wheeler, Dickey, and Porcello. Who would you want?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Asdrubal for Dickey

      • chillmodious says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks dude. I’m afraid of Dickey (trying desperately to avoid making the obvious joke… not easy). I had him for a brief while, then dropped him for Gallardo–who was subsequently dropped for Hudson. I just hate the idea that it’s russian roulette every time Dickey takes the mound. Would I be a fool for grabbing Cole/Wheeler instead?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Nope… Wheeler would be the grab

          • chillmodious says:
            (link)

            @Grey: My league is deep enough that I can probably grab Cole for Tuesday and then lose him for Wheeler. I’ll mull it over lunch. Thank you again.

    I’ve got Braun in a small keeper league, can only keep 1 superstar and 2 prospects. There is virtually no chance anyone is going to buy Braun off of me some I’m probably going to just hold on and hope for the best but I am in need of a quality 1b as I only have Frazier.

    My OF is Braun, McCutchen, J Upton & Gardner. I’m thinking of dealing one of Upton or McCutch for Goldy. Who would you rather keep between the two?

    Hello Mr Grey,
    I have ortiz pujols votto in everyday, I got an offer for Texiera and im looking for wins. 10 team roto. One offer is TEX for Masterson the other is Tex for Fister ? Should I take either? Im thinking Fister should get some W’s on Detroit. Want to trade TEX before he evaporates.

    Also would you drop Jennings or Marte or neither for Maybin? Marte has cooled and Desmond is a putz..until I drop him and he wakes up.

    You like Wacha over Cingrani ? I think someone else asked but need to ask.
    Oh and Id like to add a FUCK YOU DUSTY! toothpick asshole.

    Thanks man. Awesome site.

    Hmm I was gonna hold Niese for tomorrow vs Miami and then drop to stash Cole, but it looks like Niese is bumped til Sunday.

    I wonder if I should just drop Niese now or roll the dice that nobody adds Cole. I’m leaning towards holding for now, after Gausman, Ordorizzi, and Archer burned me lol

    12 team-roto-salary-8 mlb keeper-with 6 minor keepers

    I own Braun, to keep him next year he would cost $61 (way too rich for my blood). So, I have no intentions on keeping Braun past this season. I’m lacking in HR and RBI. A league mate offered me this deal….

    Fielder & Teheran
    for
    Braun & CC

    Teheran should be able to be stashed as a minor next season. Also, I’m leading the league in ERA and WHIP. 7 pts in Ks. Other pitchers are Strasburg, Zimmerman, Ryu, Corbin, Fister.

    Accept this and don’t look back?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Take Fielder

  65. DirtyD says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey – due to a terrible draft for pitching, I’ve been slowly trading my way to building a respectable pitching staff (I’m getting killed in W, K, and ERA. WHIP and Saves are fine). This is a 12 team 5×5 mlb redraft league.

    My starting staff currently: Greinke, Samardzija, J. Shields, Hamels, Lester, Bucholz. Pretty decent but no surefire aces.

    My OF is solid: we start 5 and I have A. Jones, Cespedes, Holliday, Choo, Markakis, and Puig (one of my OFs usually sits in my Util spot).

    Am thinking about packaging one of my six SPs plus one of my outfielders for a true #1.

    If I wanted to do that, any thoughts about which pair would make the most sense for someone like Verlander, Darvish, Wainwright, Scherzer, etc while maximizing my return?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Markakis and Lester for one? Puig and Lester? Puig and Buchholz?

      • DirtyD says:

    PITCHERS: Hamels, Bumgarner, HBailey, Wacha, Liriano, Wheeler, Cole, Grilli, League, (DL – Beachy)

    15 team 5×5, I’m currently in 6th. Top 4 in all hitting categories except AVG (14th – yikes!), but in bottom half of all pitching categories except SV.

    I posted a message that said I’d be willing to give up Cano if I could get a 1B AND SP upgrade (figuring I had Zobrist to cover for him). Here’s the offer that came my way:

    GIVE Cano, Swisher, Zobrist
    GET CLee, Butler, Scutaro

    I’m very tempted to get Lee and Butler to immediately upgrade those 2 spots, but also giving up Zobrist puts 2B at a weakness (Scutaro would be my starter). Although, as I type this, both Rendon and Franklin are available, so maybe I just go young…

    Just looking for a 2nd (or 3rd) opinion on this. Should I decline? Counter-offer? Take it and drop a young SP (Wheeler, Wacha, or Cole) for a young 2B (Franklin or Rendon).

    Thanks!!

      Trade is fair, sounds like it makes sense for your team… It’s very close though, could go either way… Grab Franklin, lose Wacha

      • Bernie Brewer says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks! I’ve countered him a deal where I include McLouth instead of Zobrist (so I can keep Zobrist at 2B). I’ve got his original offer still pending, so I could take it at any point if I change my mind, but I wanted to see if he was open to not including Zobrist in the deal.

        Great work as always on the website, love what you guys do here!!

    thoughts on braun for beltran??

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d take Beltran, it’s fair…

      • Derrick says:
        (link)

        @Grey:
        Beltran over Braun?? That’s just ludicrous!!!! I realize there is “some” risk with Braun but I doubt he even gets suspended this year. All the podcasts (CBS, ESPN) say BUY BUY BUY on Braun. In a redraft he would still be a top 20 pick EASY. It seems like you have some vendetta against him because of him maybe cheating, but his value is way way way way higher than Beltran. I hope somebody here doesn’t take your advice and sell him for this low. I traded Bruce, Sale and Teheran for Braun and Verlander. I would have done Bruce and a high end pitcher alone, but I took advantage of the fear surrounding Braun owners. The same fear you seem to have. DO NOT SELL BRAUN. You won’t get fair value. Buy him for cheap instead!

          Grey says:

            @Grey:
            Okay, so no vendetta, then you must think he will be suspended before season’s end??
            Well may I please get your take on these Braun deals?
            I traded Jay Bruce, C.Sale, and J.Teheran -for- Braun and Verlander.

            now I am being offered:
            Carlos Gomez, B.Haper and S.Romo -for- Braun, Austin Jackson and Utley.

            How did I do on the first deal?? Should I accept the second?? Thanks, much appreciation for the quick responses you always give us . . .

    I really hope that whitney houston test story is true. Kinda made my day. Thanks!

    I blame estrada for having no moves left this week to pickup cole (shoulda just kept parker and someone grabbed him off waivers) and I blame the internet and the twitters for him being gone already in my league anyway.

    Who do I blame that no one wants any of my extra outfielders in my league? Are there just too many good OF this year? They seem to be worth nothing. Someone offered me De La Rosa for my Aoki after he picked him up off FA that morning. I coulda just grabbed him myself if Ida wanted him! Blech…

    When giancarlo comes back next week do I drop Gregerson, (I’ve got Frieri and Wilhelmsen) or one of Nava/Marte/Aoki/Gardner/McLouth (I’ve got Trout, Cespedes, and Brown too)? I don’t think I can afford to let go of one of my pitching spots…

    thanks once again mr mustachio

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Totally true… I’m quite the academic! Yeah, guys like Aoki are a dime a dozen, mentioned this in the rankings in January… Drop Aoki, you have too many OFs…

      • c0wfunk says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Yes, yes you did. I listen! But man, you should see the scrubs these fools have rostered as OF.. I’m trying to do them a favor. Really, it would really help them all if I had better pitching and less OF, really!

        You’re pretty sure Marte’s gonna get his act together, eh? after that first month he’s been pretty brutal.

    1. i was happy to get cole yesterday in 16 teamer where it’s hard to find decent or better pitching. In the 10 teamer i’ve still been holding perez/doumit due to doumit’s crazy hitting lately, actually played both yesterday.
    2. machado or profar today only, Hitter T has them close, both low, with profar winning.
    3. to pick up cole who gets dropped skaggs/doumit/gregerson (already have valverde/rivera/janssen/jansen/league)/wil myers?

        @Grey: man it just looks crazy to drop a guy with 5 homers and 3 doubles with 13 rbi’s his last 9 games. But looking at his stats, he must really have been terrible for his first 139 at bats. 16 runs/22 rbi’s only 3 homers batting .216.

            @Grey: damn, those counting stats 38/139 aren’t bad, esp for a .216 hitter. Makes avila look stupid. He obv hits in decent part of lineup all year. time to ship him off for an ace.

    What do you make of the fact that the ROS Hitter-Tron ranks someone like Starling Marte ahead of Shin-Soo Choo? Both have been scuffling; I wonder what’s behind that.

    On a related note, do I want to trade Choo + Adam Lind for Doug Fister + Starling Marte? 14 team H2H 5×5 league. Is Marte close enough to Choo that it’s worth it to gain Fister?

    • Tchaikovsky08 says:
      (link)

      @Tchaikovsky08: Alternatively, I could trade Domonic Brown instead of Choo but (1) Brown is a minimum $ keeper next year, and (2) the upside is so tantalizing.

      Choo would be an expensive keeper; Marte and Fister would be cheap keepers. Lind would be a minimum $ keeper.

    Hi, Grey!

    Should I trade Medlen for Wheeler in a 12 team mixed, keeper, points league? I’m probably not gonna win this year, so even if Medlen has a great second half I’m still thinking I might like the upside of a potential ace in Wheeler.

    Grey this is my pitching staff in a 10 team, H2H, 8×8 league where people are stockpiling pitchers. So the quality of pitching material on waivers is comparable to a 12 or 14 team league:

    Miller
    Lynn
    Wacha
    Johnson
    Gallardo
    Kluber
    Shields

    Peavy and Beachy are on DL.

    Now do you see anyone who could or should be dropped for a guy like Cole, Gausman, Liriano, Porcello? ROS?

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Liriano and Porcello for Gallardo
      Kluber

  121. Gray Elbright says:
    (link)

    Scherzer
    Hamels
    Weaver
    Cobb
    Milone
    Straily
    Wheeler
    Pestano
    Janssen
    Gregg
    Brothers
    Krod
    Perez DL
    HendersonDL

    I currently DL moreland, and will be adding Lind or Loney, which of these pitchers if any would you trade for Mike Napoli that would be fair, as I could play him at CI or C.

    Thnx

        @Grey:

        Wheeler or Cobb would be the only ones, considering Milone and Straily are replacable, I may hold, and or try and shop one of them for Ev. Cabb – Need steals too, and hopefully Vmart has turned the corner.

    Probably don’t have to ask about this one but….

    I just offered up Dickey for Kemp.

    That would be a steal right? So I probably should expect it to get rejected no?

    Hey Grey, what’s your thoughts on Marte? He done? He’s not getting on base much and getting caught stealing. Droppable for another speedster like Maybin or Rajai Davis?

    Also, rank these prospects–Wheeler, Gausman, Wacha, Skaggs? Throw Beachy (off DL soon) in there. I only have room for 3, with Wacha, Wheeler and Gausman so far–swap any out?

        @TheNewGuy: I was thinking Samardzija great SP on a bad team. Not many w’s. I will utility Pujols til he heats up, then trade him. Not liking back spasm issues with already weak Hamilton. Dropped Hellboy for Wacha. Now Wacha for Cole today. Wacha RP in ESPN, so have to bench closer to play anyhow. CJ Wilson seems shaky, so still want Wheeler. If Cole doesn’t start Tuesday, then him for Wheeler maybe.

                      Yeah, last time vs Tigers in Detroit was 6 IP, 8 K and 1 ER. Just depends on if you believe he’s regaining form or not whether or not it seems crazy; bad home numbers so far but his road stats are startable in most deep leagues, which is where I had him.

                      A little bit of Machado for David Price

    I made a couple of trades. Let me know if I did well :) It is a 10 team, mixed points league. Trade #1: I gave up Puig and Alex Cobb and got back Madison Bumgarner and Mark Reynolds. Trade #2: I gave up Joe Nathan and Matt Harvey and got back Mike Trout and Aramis Ramirez.

    Hey Grey,

    Two trade questions in a 12 team H2H. Trade 1: I give S. Miller I get Cespedes. Trade 2: I give Jay Bruce I get David Price. Take one, both or neither?

    My current OFs are: JUp, Bruce, Choo, Heyward, Jennings (we start 3) and my SPs are: Hamels, Lester, Latos, Zimm, Miller, Ryu, J. Parker

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Take 1

      • B.J. says:

        @Grey: ok thanks. Was definitely taking 1, needed guidance for 2.

        Now a big problem, I have 7 guys (JUp, Bruce, Choo, Cespedes, Heyward, Jennings and K. Morales) for 4 slots (3 OF and 1 UTIL), ok to cut Jennings and/or Morales for Wheeler, Cole, J. Fernandez, Teheran?

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Morales for Wheeler

    I have braun (unfortunately traded pedroia and shelby miller for him preseason). Who you think I could/should target for him?

    I’m thinking maybe a 1b such as Goldshmidt? Any shot at that?

    I have:

    C – McCann
    1b – LaRoche
    2b – Cano
    SS – Zobrist
    3b – ARam
    OF – Braun
    OF – Ozuna
    OF – Puig
    Util – Brown
    Bn – Marte
    DL – AJax

    SP – Price, Weaver, Cobb, Minor, Bailey, Wheeler, Cole, 1 streaming slot
    RP – Soriano, Chapman, Grilli

    General noob question: Sweet spot for closers rostered?
    I’m guessing 3, but is 2 (Nathan, Bailey) acceptable to pick up a potential ace in Cole?
    Kendrick (nice matchup), Dickey (another nice match), Wacha (I just want him), and Wheeler (?) are my weak links.
    I don’t really have anyone else to drop. Should I offer a guy in my league valuable information for beer/buds instead?

        I suspected Kendrick to be the right answer but I hate bailing on him because I got hosed in a trade earlier and every time he does well, I feel less hosed… Plus, I get another reason to watch Dom Brown’s at bats.

      It’s probably pretty close… Depends what piece he wants you to add and what you have… Weaver is way too much

      • J-Lef says:

        @Grey: he has Wheeler, perhaps I can get him to throw that in? or if he wants to do a 1-for-3 with a pitching piece, come back with one of these:

        AJ Burnett
        Matt Garza
        James Shields

        @J-Lef: but you get two FA pick ups? right? i’d almost take it, sell high on D-brown…. i’d try and just sell him brown/davis, because weaver on top is just getting to be a bit much, maybe add something with miggy if thats the case, a closer? or?

    I loved whatever year it was after Bonds was gone, but still listed on Yahoo the next year.

    I must have have picked him up and dropped him about 2 seconds later 3 times.

    Liked doing the same with Clemens.

    Yeah,Im weird about the memories of my childhood days when they only did greenies.

    I remember seeing Eddie Feigner(softball traveling pitcher) use some very strange ointment on his arm.The chick who applied it called it “horse liniment”.But I’ll cut him a break since he was probably play for PBR’s and a cheap motel room.

    I hate dishonest people and cheaters.

    GREY-

    alright the friday night Lady Bleigh is kicking in, im sailing, and the trade offers are flowing, what pathetic lives some of us have, or are they great???

    Deals offered to me, balls in my court:

    I GET: Bruce, Cespedes, J. Grilli, and Dirt Stache Derek Holland from Newark, OH

    I give: Giancarlo, Aaron Hill, Greinke, and DIckey.

    I feel like i’m giving up some big names but lots of issues….. bruce can do what stanton can do? hate to say it but its true….. cespedes can do more than he’s done avg wise, upside, dickey is almost irrlevant seeings how I benched him on his gem the other night because you never know when he’s gonna throw a decent game….. im all about adding another solid closer anytime.

    12 team, H2H, 10×10, 32 innings min pitching……

    Whats your take?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I think it’s pretty fair, would depend on what Dickey does, and he hasn’t done much…

      I would

    • Yariel Rivera says:
      (link)

      He also has Cespedes but he will cost $25. I don’t think he’ll be worth that much in a league where the top players go in the 40-50 range.

    in light of already owning valverde, and having braun and gregerson; with the trade possible partner having street/thayer/benoit, wouldn’t that earlier mentioned braun/gregerson for heyward/porcello by improved by me getting heyward/benoit instead?

I might see how it plays out for a week, but I will eventually have to cut someone loose.

I offered Miller/Craig for EE and the deal was turned down. Arenado has been hot the last few games, but I don’t think he is a good solution ROS. I think Rendon will be decent, but also not a ROS solution. What 3B should I go after with Miller and possible craig or one of my OF?

    The bottom of my rotation is Wacha, Ogando, Cole. Skaggs, Maholm, and Cahill are all available. Are any of them upgrades?

      Trade is fine if you need an ace which it doesn’t look like you did… Go after Zimmerman… I’d hold with the SPs you have…

        @Grey: I would have to trade Miller + either Hamilton or Ajax to get zimmerman. Would that be worth it with hamilton and miller? What about hamilton and ajax?

    while attempting to find the number of the guy i’m trying to trade braun/gregerson to for heyward/benoit (we know each other from poker house games, but his number changed) i’m now talking about moving braun for mccutchen, but owner’s saying i’d need to throw in something else too. He’s probably going to ask for a medium strength pitcher because his pitching is terrible. I’d rather move profar since i already have gyorko/hill. He’s got enough closers already but he might take one somebody like h.bailey/braun for mccutchen. I could pick up Niese/somebody else after making this trade. Dickey is my only “worse” pitcher to date on season. Lately i’ve replaced Kendrick/Milone/Niese with Skaggs/Cole/gregerson.So Skaggs could be an option with Braun.
    1.is profar/braun acceptable attempt for dread pirate?
    2. if that’s not accepted should i do bailey or skaggs with braun for cutch?

        @Grey: ok it’s better than i thought, i can get mccutchen. here’s the juice.
        mccutch/wilhelmsen for braun/rivera. in case of trouble capps is available and i would soon attempt to flip gregerson for benoit to the street owner, protecting myself if in fact valverde f’s up his job.

    …im also in a weekly league so i don’t want to put him in my lineup over zobrist if he wont play

  230. Just traded Shelby Miller and Michael Morse for Adam Jones. How’d I do? I also offered another team Mark Trumbo for Wil Myers and Jeff Samardjszasaza.. He countered with Wil Myers and Samard for Trumbo and Dexter Fowler. Thoughts on that one? Thanks!

    damn both people whom i thought their respective teams were insane to actually start with better options all around (bonderman and archer) actually both pitched really well. I’m assuming this means archer might actually be usable again, unlike his first “start”.

    Grey,

    5×5 category league – Weiters or Rosario ROS?

    Also, would you add Lackey and cut ties with Jose Fernandez where your staff is already skewing young (Fernandez, Wheeler, Cole, Teheran)? I’m worried about having too many guys with innings caps heading toward the playoffs. (I also have Darvish, Price, Ryu, Ogando, Beachy). Gausman is also available but not only is he another youngster but I absolutely hate his projected schedule for the next 2 months.

    Thanks! Always appreciate your opinion.
