Don't be shellfish...FacebookTwitterGoogle+

Jose Lima died yesterday at the age of 37 after suffering a major heart attack.  In a career with its ups and downs, Jose was always entertaining.  It’s as if he was part baseball player and part wrestler.  It’s sadly ironic that he suffered the fate that many wrestlers have met in dying prematurely.

RIP Jose.  You were one of a kind and you will be missed.

With Grey in mourning, I’ll soldier on with the rest of Sunday’s news…

Homer Bailey – The odyssey of owning Homer continues as, after 2 straight promising starts (16 IP, 2 ER, 10 baserunners, 10 Ks), he was pulled in the 3rd inning with a sore shoulder.  Word out of Cincinnati is it was just precautionary and he might even make his next start.  Bailey owners – Congrats?  Sorry?  I don’t know…

Alfredo Simon – Simon is out anywhere from a couple days to two weeks with a hamstring strain.  At what point do Oriole relievers just say, “Thanks but no thanks” when offered the closer job?  Cla Meredith is probably the best bet for saves but I wouldn’t drop anyone of significance for him.

Kerry Wood - How many times would Kerry Wood not suck if the Indians could trust Wood?  Well, he finally netted his first save of 2010 on Sunday.  The job is his unless he really stinks it up over the next month.  Own him for SAGNOF and cut bait on Chris Perez in all but AL-only leagues.

Zack Greinke – Greinkes!  Things got a bit Rockie for the Zack Attack as he finally earned his first loss of the year after giving up 7 ER in 3 1/3 IP.  ERA, WHIP, and Ks are all well and good but 1 win?  Even Oswalt has 2 wins.  Maybe Greinke should request a trade of the other 24 rostered Royals.

Edwin Encarnacion / Jose Bautista – A HR for each player in the win against the Diamondbacks.  That’s 4 in 2 days for E-squared and 7 in 9 games for Bautista.  Is Toronto putting baseballs in a dehumidor this year?

Mat Latos / Clayton Richard – Both Hodgepadres shut down the Mariners over the weekend giving up 1 ER each over a total of 13 IPs.  Latos has a 3.28 ERA now and that’s only the 3rd best (behind Garland and Richard).   Stay stingy, San Diego.

Jason Bay – Tripled his season HR total with 2 HRs off CC Sabathia in a 6-4 Mets win.  4 more games like that and he’s a HR ahead of Rod Barajas!

Scott Rolen – Someone else must be drinking from the same fountain of youth as Vernon Wells.  Rolen hit HRs #9 and #10 in the Battle of Shaker Heights.  There’s no way he’ll keep this pace but he’s probably good for at leat another 10 HRs this year IF he stays healthy.  Congratulations to anyone who picked up Rolen early and on that note…

Aramis Ramirez - Condolences to anyone who bought a vial of Aramis this year as it stinks.  Oh Aramis, why won’t you listen to Rudy Jaramillo?  If he could resurrect Alfonso Soriano and Marlon Byrd, he could salvage you too.  In any case, Aramis has a bum thumb and will be out for a couple of days.  Time for some tough love and let him use that bum thumb to hitchhike his way off your team.

Ben Sheets / Gio Gonzalez – Owners brave or absent enough to hold onto Sheets after his Deliverance-inspired starts @TB (4 IP / 8 ER) and @TOR (3.1 IP 9 ER) have gotten 3 quality starts in 4 starts with Sunday’s being the best (6 IP, 4 baserunners, 8 Ks).  G-squared did him better with 8 shutout innings on Saturday for his 5th win of the year.  Both SPs are worth owning in all formats at this point except Fantasy Razzball (the only league I drafted Gonzalez in – doh!).

Mike Napoli – A 3-run HR.  4 HRs in 6.  If he’s still available, best to grab him before Scoscia changes his mind and benches him again.

Hank Blalock – Got a rare start at 3B – in place of New Era – and responded with a HR.  Doubtful he’ll get 3B-eligibility this year but it’s just nice to see him getting playing time.  Wouldn’t want him in a 12-team MLB league but 25 HR power looks awfully good in deeper leagues even if the other stats will be lacking.

Roy Halladay – 6 ER in 5 2/3 IP as he lost in an unlikely duel with Tim Wakefield.  He took it like a man though – egging on the Sawx with “I’ll be your huckleberry” as he took hit after hit.

    I’ve convinced myself to hang onto G. Beckham and leave him on the bench until he can beat the funk…but I just got offered a swap for Rasmus. Accept and move on? Could use steals.

    @GhostfacePrzybilla: ya take that, beckham was dropped in my one league, picked up by another guy who i think is just gonna bench and see….

    thanks for the post rudy! get well grey, do we send flowers or daiquiris? or daquiris accompanied by flowers? or with flowers in them?

    mmmmmmm…. happy monday

  6. Hi Rudy — Congrats on the nuptials.

    Please rank these guys in terms of who is most likely to get save chances in the near term: Cla Meredith, Aaron Heilman, and Sergio Santos. I’m in a 20-team roto league where saves are a premium.

    Also, which two of these new SPs do you think are best to keep or grab for the rest of the year? The candidates: Takahashi, Latos, Chaucin, Ely.

    Thanks!

  7. Fletch says:

    @Rudy – Got to pick 3 out of these 6 to start:

    2 start guys – Cecil, Garland (2 home starts), Guthrie and
    S. Baker (2 home starts)

    1 start guys – Verlander @ Sea, Latos vs. Wash

    Thoughts on starting Wade Davis tonight?

  10. Jäger bombers says:
    (link)

    @Rudy: Congrats man! So my team has been pretty crappy and someone just offered me an interesting trade…
    Fielder and Beckett for Panda, Tim Hudson and Hamels. Who do you think wins? Here’s my team:
    C- Ivan Rod 1b- pujols 2b- weeks 3b- Panda SS- drew OF- Werth, Lind, Pence, Quentin, Damon
    Utl: Beltre, Beckham (dropped for Rivera)
    Sp: Lester, Hamels, Burnette, Hudson, Cueto, Ervin Santana, J Sanchez

    He’s also got Wade Davis, Romero, Richard, and Weaver that I can ask for.
    It’s an interesting trade but Beckett is a pretty risky pick. What do you think?

    i’m concerned that grey was connected to jose lima like the mystics and skeksis in the dark crystal, where if one of them was killed his counterpart would burst into flames in the middle of whatever he was doing hundreds of miles away

    Hey Rudy,

    Congratulations on getting married. All the best for the future.

    As well, sad day for fantasy baseball with Lima passing, may he RIP. I wonder if he knew how much he impacted fantasy.

    Would you trade Magglio for Derrek Lee at this point? I see Mags as a sell high and Lee as a buy low but just curious your opinion.

    Thanks in advance,

    Spartacus

  13. Cruz for Greinke

    If I’ve got Holliday, Ibanez, Dunn, Crawford, and Granderson (In a week) and my best pitcher is Ricky Romero

    Hey Rudy, Welcome back and congrats – Please forgive the double post but I want to get out the winner of our Refresh Vote-A-Thon.

    Well with this curveball to everyone’s morning I am going to step in with my PSA for the Refresh Everything update http://pep.si/abEtbm.

    The weekend Razzball vote was strong and after finally teaching Pete (my two year old) how to pick a name out of a hat and give it to me without freaking out, he passed me —-

    KERRY P.!!!!! Kerry please send me your info at whoisinthedoghousenowatyahoodotcom

    To claim your prize of a $100 gift card to Wally World.
    Thank you everyone for your continued support and it isn’t over yet with a lot of ground to cover! So please pass the link on to your family and friends (FB and blogging makes for great voters).

    As Rich S. said, “Razzball, Razzball, will get you to number 1?

    Lets test that statement and get the word out there. We had at least 100 comments from Razzball this weekend. If each voter asked three FB friends to vote daily, do this three tiers deep in your FB we would go over the top.
    I know, I know some of you are saying, “Hey I think I have seen that math!”
    Yes you have!

    Wow, Love the Dark Crystal shout out Wily Mo…love that flick.

    IS this Axford kid worth picking up, or will Hoffman get the job back by this week? Still going to hold onto Hoffman, but can use saves…

  17. @Black Beard: I’d take Figgy. Weeks hasn’t had a 2 hit game in 2 weeks…

    @Enrique: Thanks. I’d say Meredith #1 and that Heilman and Santos are long shots (given Qualls has saved 3 straight and Jenks has looked good of late.

    I’d take Latos and Ely b/c of their home parks and promising initial performance. Love Takahashi’s K-rate to date but not convinced it’ll carry over to starting.

    @Fletch: Garland, Baker, Verlander

    @BKK: yeah, it was a bit of a groaner….

    @Nick0rz: I don’t like starting 2nd/3rd tier SPs against the Sawx, TB, or NYY. So I’d say no.

    When did Jose Bautista sell his soul to the Devil? Every year he starts hitting homers on the WW, and I would always look at his stats and out of disgust not pick him up. Then someone else would grab him and he continues to smack balls for another couple of weeks before disappearing into oblivion.

    I tried to ride the Napoli hot streak and trade him away. No takers. I guess we have lots of Sciocia fans in my league.

    Btw, I drafted E Squared and waived him for Rolen before the season started. Shouldn’t my team get half credit for those homers? I mean, no one else would touch’em. Then I punted Rolen for Wig two weeks into the year. Sadly, I should have punted the Chipster instead of Rolen. Me and my sick fascination with Chipper Jones.

  19. @Jäger bombers: I’m torn on this one. I like Fielder better than Panda and you can plug in Beltre to 3B who you’ve got at UTIL. But Beckett is full of question marks with his performance to date. I’d hold off.

    @wily mo: I’m concerned Grey is going to hit on his widow.

    @thefaketom: Hell yeah.

    @Mikey boy324: Not thrilled with either. I guess Chacin if I had to pick one.

    @XNadyMen: I still like Charlie V to backup Hoffman. Axford has some ugly walk rates (5+ per 9 IP in the minors).

    Also, RIP Lima Time.

  21. going by the SELL on Morneau and dealing him, is this a stretch:

    Morneau
    Ervin Santana
    K Wood

    for

    Roy Holliday
    M Teixeira

    time to move bautista? just got offered contreras for him and i have valverde and qualls as my other closers…im concerned contreras will be demoted in a week so im leaning toward holding off-any thoughts everybody? (12 team league head to head)

    @papasmurf: I hope he’s playing on Billy Martin’s team.

    Rudy, congrats man!

    Also, I was genuinely saddened by news of Jose Lima. Though he was never that great, he was a favorite of mine. I have seen two no-hitters (one a perfect game), as well as Nolan Ryan’s last game, yet my favorite baseball memory was watching Lima shut out the Cardinals in Game 3 of the 04 Division Series, while the crowd was chanting Lima-Lima-Lima for the final two innings. Sometimes you want the most talented dude on the mound, and sometimes you just want the guy that’s too damn crazy to get nervous. He was great.

    suddenly napoli’s #s look about where you’d expect them to be thus far. refusing to pick at my scab for any old schmohawk ww catcher paid off. i was scooped on a ww C 3 straight times trying to drop napoli early in the season and decided it was god telling me we were meant for each other.

  28. ThePoonTycoon says:

    also, welcome back zorilla. i finally benched you in my h2h weekly lineup league and you go off. thankfully, i think you only cost me winning Rs this week, and if that’s the sacrifice i have to make in order to get you kick started, then so be it.

  29. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Dingo: Thanks!

    I want to brag about something. A few weeks back, while Car-Go was hitting cleanup, I went against common logic and traded him for Adam LaRoche and Roy Oswalt, which drew a great deal of criticism. People acted like I was trading away Werth-like numbers. Cargo was about to return to the top of the lineup, where he would be less useful to me. I cashed in on the hype and got some boring yet useful pieces.

    Since the deal, Car-Go hasn’t knocked in many runs, and my boring tandem of Oswalt/LaRoche has played well. I have no delusions regarding Oswalt… he’ll give me a 3.5 ERA with a decent but boring K rate. LaRoche will put up career numbers this year.

  33. Frank-Frank or Heilman for save speculation?

  34. charlie batch says:

    Interesting trade I received… My Morneau/Lind/Billingsley for his Teix/Pedroia/Kuroda. My team is
    1b) morneau
    2b) kelly johnson
    3b) longoria
    ss) andrus
    of) BJ, hamilton, lind
    util) span
    bn) quentin

    Im leaning no, unless you can see pedroia being a sizeable upgrade over johnson from here out. What are your thoughts?

  35. Corey II says:

    Is there any value left in Austin Jackson? I have him platooning with Borbon and Boesch in my last OF and Util spots right now – should I cut him to pick up Meredith (i need saves) or a new hitter – best availible look to be EE, Swisher, IDavis, or what about Hinske who is hot and plays a bunch of positions?

  36. Covered the Napoli scab, but now it appears healthy and enjoying the benefits of regular playing time. Had subbed with Doumit who’s been very decent & outperforms Nap in the AVG dept. Despite being quite fearful of Scioscia’s arrogant whims and Napoli splitting time again soon, would you recommend yanking off that bandage & going back to Napoli, or riding the Doumit semi-hot streak.
    Thanks for avoiding the DL Grey; & hope that you’re feeling better!

    @Grey:
    Good to hear you’re back Grey!

    What two pitchers do you take here, possibly for the rest of the season:

    Mike Pelfrey
    Edwin Jackson
    Jeff Francis
    Gavin FLoyd

    I heard Grey went to the disgraceful list for telling me to draft Adam Jones over Rios.

    But seriously, get well Grey. My Monday mornings are bad enough even without my morning dose of Razzball.

  39. Matt says:

    Standard 5 x 5 league, please rank the following for the rest of the way: Big Papi, Carlos Santana, Valbuena, Mark Ellis, Corey Patterson and Hank Blalock.

  40. Hop off of the Luke Scott gravy train and grab some Corey Hart?

    Am I crazy to like abuelo Livan over grandpa Moyer? Livan gets SF and SD. The Mets beat Moyer last time out and have been hitting lefties well.

    SF hitters have looked hopeless. Livan should completely crush their souls tomorrow night.

  41. @Grey: Good to have you back manning the helm Grey!

    Jose Lopez or Ian Desmond?
    Also, thoughts on Carlos Guillen as a fantasy 2B (when he eventually becomes eligible)? I’m holding out hope that he put up decent to solid numbers for a 2B.

    @Tom: You have alligator blood.

    @Mark Geoffriau: Heilman’s a bit closer to getting saves, but neither looks especially promising right now.

    @charlie batch: Pedroia is an upgrade, really the part that matters the most, which you left off your team, is the pitching. How does losing Bills change your staff?

    @Corey II: Jackson’s did the same thing last week he’s been doing. He hit almost .400 with no power or speed. Now you’re done with him? If you need saves, I’d grab Meredith.

    @zombie: I’d just own Napoli. Thanks!

    @Eddy: Pelfrey and Jackson gets a good next start.

    @Donnie Baseball: Thanks!

    @Matt: Ortiz, Santana, Blalock…

    @3FingersBrown: Grab Hart, Abuelo’s fine in those matchups… Thanks!

    @genghis chone: It’s okay if you need saves.

    @Ron Washington’s Stache: Lopez…I’d own Guillen as a 2nd baseman, not over Lopez though.

  46. Ron Washington's Stache says:
    (link)

    @genghis chone: I like the Rasmus/Price side…200 innings of Price > 70 innings of Soria

    @3FingersBrown: Hart > Scott

    @Matt: That’s the most random group ever. My only thoughts are that they all kinda suck, but Papi can provide solid HR’s and RBI’s.

  47. Corey II says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Well Jackson is hurt now is why I asked – didnt know if you had any word on his return and/or thoughts on his performance now that he cant see anymore.

    @Corey II: He’s supposed to be back on Tuesday, in their next game.

    Who would you start this week out of the following?

    MI: Johnson, Desmond, or Alcides

    I’m leaning toward benching Kel-Jo cuz he seems to be mired in one of his patented funks right now.

    And I gotta go w/ Ells over Fuck-o-dome and Maybin, right?

  53. charlie batch says:
    (link)

    @Grey: True, my pitching is solid, Ive been pretty dominant thus far. Lincecum, Hamels, Garza, Bills, Oswalt, Sanchez, with Marmol, Aardsma, Jenks, and Clippard RPing.

  54. Ron Washington's Stache says:

    @Danks Nugs: ya i’m ready to insert orlando hudson for kelly johnson, watching KJ go 1-4 and O-dog go 3-5 night after night this past week drove me crazy….

    Hudsons line is somewhat boring, BUT in my 10×10 league he’s very efficient….

  57. Danks Nugs says:
    (link)

    @Tony: Yeah, I feel ya on that one. I’m not usually one to switch guys in and out of the lineup at the first sign of trouble, but Alcides has started to swing the bat better than he has been, and Desmond provides a solid AVG w/ some pop, so I’m thinking now is the time to do it if I’m gonna do it @ all…

  58. Tony says:

    @Grey: Ike Davis was just dropped in my 10 team 7 Keepers. Is he worth me dropping any of my back end SP’s in a 1300 IP limit league? I don’t think I’d be starting him but feel like he should be owned in a keeper with no time limit on how long you can hold players.

    Drop Wells, DeLaRosa, Wilson, or Lewis?

    My staff is those four plus Kershaw, Nolasco, Baker, Vazquez, + Sanchez.

    Rough looking, I know.

  61. Tony says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Ya i agree he is hyped more than any player probably ever has been, but the dude has skills, i think he’ll come to the pro’s and mow guys down…. he’ll have a rough patch here and there since he’s young, but any guy rocking high 90′s, low 100′s is ok in my book.

    @ Grey – Got to pick 3 out of these 6 to start:

    2 start guys – Cecil, Garland (2 home starts), Guthrie and
    S. Baker (2 home starts)

    1 start guys – Verlander @ Sea, Latos vs. Wash

    -Smokey had Verlander, Guthrie and Garland

    Glad to see you back in the saddle Grey!

    I’m dropping either R Davis or S Podsednik today (to pick up Boesch).
    I’m in a 12 team, 5×5, HTH league. I don’t have a lot of speed which leans me towards Davis – but who would you drop based on rest of season? Any insights?

    Thanks!

  64. Grey

    Grey says:
    (link)

    @timSTi: Probably should be owned, but wouldn’t drop any of them for him.

    @Fletch: Thanks! I agree with Rudy.

    @Bermuda Triangles: You don’t have speed so you’re losing Davis? Bit confused, but Davis is the drop between him and Pods.

    is big papi a good pickup for this week? looks like he is facing all righties so he should be playing unless he needs rest. he got dropped a couple weeks ago and i think everyone in the league is hesitant to scoop him back up.

    Better minor league stash. Brantley or Reimold?

  69. @all: anyone know Santana’s Super 2 eligibility date? It’s almost June and Santana’s mashing. Meanwhile the dead roster spot has been killing me.

    “Carlos Santana is hitting .310 with nine home runs, 39 RBI, a .436 on-base percentage and .559 slugging percentage. He leads the International League in both on-base percentage and walks (29), is third in runs (28), fourth in home runs and seventh in hitting.”

    Any rumblings in the local news?

  70. Fletch says:

    @Grey: Which 2 out of the 4 would you put in my relief pitcher slots:

    1) Valverde (only 5 games – 2@Sea, 3 home vs. Oak),
    2) Neftali (only 5 games – 2@KC, 3@Minn),
    3) Clayton Richard (home start against Wash-Lannan)
    or
    4) Kris Medlen (home start against Pitt-Burres)

  71. Grey

    Grey says:

    @GopherDay: I wouldn’t drop Simon yet. He could be back by next week and getting saves again. Unless I guess you don’t need him, then grab a Holds guy.

    I have Pierre and Andrus anchoring my team in steals, but I just picked up Borbon off waivers and think Pierre can get me a nice power hitting outfielder if combined with a pitcher. Borbon has been lousy, but I can’t help but think Pierre’s and Borbon’s SB numbers could be the same from here on out.

    Grey, is Pierre worth shopping? Apart from Borbon, my other steal threats are Andrus, Beckham, Bruce, O-Cab, Headley, Werth, and Granderson. All contribute a little.

  77. Rudy, Grey, anyone — in a 20-team league, I need someone to fill in for Rollins (I have Aviles, but he usually plays 2B, so the substitute can be either a SS or a 2B). Who do you like more to play regularly and fairly well until Rollins recovers?

    Pickins here are slim: Brignac, Blake DeWitt, Jason Donald, Juan Castro.

    I’m basically looking for a guy who isn’t going to do much damage, but my weakest offensive categories are R and AVE.

    12 teams, H2H, 5×5, Non Keeper

    If I can get F-Her for my Hughes and Krispie I gotta do it, right? We start only 3 OF in this league and I got Granderson, BJ Upton, Bruce and Hart along with Krispie for these 3 spots + my Util
