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

The 40-man roster began in the 1960′s when the Houston Colt 45′s entered as an expansion team.  It gave them an opportunity to call up a young, smooth outfielder named Billy Dee Williams, who could play the field with the best of them.  Unfortunately, he was on the bench most days, because his team was content playing some grizzled vets, but then his sweet moustache caught the attention of the nearby space program who was looking to break the astronaut color barrier, and he landed a job as a city adminstrator in a nearby galaxy.  This is the problem with most rookies, they need space to play.  There’s already been some call-ups:  Manny Machado came up and hit three quick homers then he went on a five minute diatribe where he only talked in 1st person, “Machado don’t love you; Machado want to watch Wheel of Fortune; Machado is demanding middle infielder slot on your fantasy team; Machado will be good next year or maybe 2014.”  Trevor Bauer tipped his foot in the major leagues, then his whole body as he made your fantasy team his own personal dunk tank.  I already went over my Shelby Miller fantasy; I wrote it with dye from purple potatoes. I already went over my Billy Hamilton fantasy; I wrote that without considering Dusty “I don’t play no damn rookies!” Baker.  My Brett Jackson fantasy and the Josh Vitters fantasy were the same and they may as well have been lumped in with my Mike Olt fantasy too.  Wil Myers will probably end up the same as my Jurickson Profar fantasy, i.e., they’re not playing this year.  Let’s just say, rookies are a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.  Except, maybe, oh, geez, another one is pulling me in… This Jedd Gyorko fella seems kinda interesting.  Here’s what I said earlier in the season, “His last name is pronounced Jerko.  You ask, what kind of last name is pronounced Jerko?  The kind that will get you punched in the face.  At least he’s not a hockey player, or his name would be Jerkov.  After seeing what Yonder’s done in Petco…And Headley… And Quentin… And every Padres hitter to ever play in Petco besides an in-his-prime A-Gon.  I’d still be cautious.  You’re looking a guy that might give 6 homers without much speed over the final two months.  It’s a’ight.”  And that’s me quoting me!  That was obviously last month and now he only has a month left to prove his 30 homers in the minor leagues this year wasn’t a fluke.  If you’re hurting for power in very deep leagues, I’d take a flyer.  In NL-Only and deep keepers, he’s obviously a must own.  There’s no way he doesn’t break camp with the Padres next year.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Chris Nelson – Now this is how you start a Buy column!  Chris Mothereffin’ Nelson!  And that’s more excitement than his own family shows him.  He doesn’t have much power or speed or a very memorable name… Shoot, the positive stuff about Nelson was written on a piece of paper that got wet.  He, uh, has been crapping well recently?  Oh, hitting well recently!  Yes, and the Rockies are home until someday…Sunday.  They’re home until Sunday.

Donovan Solano - I didn’t mention him much for the last ten days when he was hitting at a near .400 clip, but I have my reasons.  All right, I’ll tell ya.  He’s not doing anything but hitting a bunch of singles.  Donovan hasn’t had this many singles since he was in a strip club in the 1960′s.  He could show some speed, so it’s worth giving him a whirl if you need some average and speed at your middle infield slot.  Who am I kidding?  Everyone needs that from their MI.

Wilin Rosario – He’s only owned in 25% of ESPN leagues.  Are you people crackers?!  He has 22 homers.  You know who else has 22 homers?  Hanley Ramirez.  Only he has 200 extra at-bats.  Wilin has more homers than anyone with less than 300 at-bats.  Okay, so it’s hurting his counting stats, right?  He only has 6 less runs than Pierzynski and 13 less RBIs.  He has more runs than McCann and only three less runs than Posey.  He’s making Carlos Santana look like he’s doing another Rob Thomas duet, and he’s blowing away Napoli.  Okay, I’m gonna move on before I inflame my ulcer.

Lucas Duda – “Hey, Devil here.  What’s the haps?  Question for you.  I’ll make you a major league baseball player, but for your entire life you have to hear the Camptown Races song playing in your head.  Do we have a deal?”  I know which way Lucas Duda answered.

Adam Lind – I’m doing all I can to push Lind by not picking him up, but so far he hasn’t really answered that non-call.  I’d still grab him for power.  I mean, I won’t grab him for power, so when you grab him he gives you power.

Mauro Gomez – MaLoney, the Rudy-coined Mauro/Loney Sawx platoon, is a mess, but if Mauro can emerge with the majority of at-bats, he could have value in deeper leagues.  In Triple-A, he was the International League MVP after batting .310 with 24 homers in 100 games.  He’s nothing terrific (he’s old for a prospect, and right now he’s on the bad side of the platoon), but he’s worth keeping an eye on in mixed leagues or grabbing in AL-Only leagues.

Norichika Aoki – With 6 homers, 21 steals and a .280+ average, he’s looking like a Japanese man’s Denard Span or Denard San.

Trayvon Robinson – SAGNOF!

Tommy MiloneStream-o-Nator sure does love it some Hodgepadres and MediaOAKers.  Milone gets the Sawx in Oakland, but S.O.N. likes it, so who am I argue?

Marco Estrada – He won’t go more than six innings, but he also won’t have less than six Ks and decent ratios.  I’d push my CHIPs in for that Estrada.  Cue Rosco P. Coltrane laugh.

Lucas Harrell – Going from a guy who won’t go more than 6 innings to a guy pitching for the Lastros.  So how are you getting Wins?  You’re forming a prayer rectangle with your co-workers and squeezing your eyes shut praying to my mustache.

Pedro Alvarez – Almost as baffling as Rosario only being owned in 25% leagues is Alvarez being owned in just under 50% of leagues.  ESPN ownership math is like trying to figure out Jamie Kennedy’s fame.  It doesn’t make any sense then you’re at a BBQ and someone quotes a line from one of his movies and you’re like, “It still doesn’t make any sense to me, but it does to people I’m hanging out with, so what does that say about me?”  Or maybe that has nothing to do with ESPN ownership math, but it did have me puzzled recently.

Brandon League – Kenley’s on the shelf with heart problems and League or Ronald Belisario could see saves.  I’d grab them in that order, but I have only 5% confidence in that League endorsement.  I’m just being real with you.  You hear me?  Hello?  Hmm, maybe it’s because everyone is over at our fantasy football blog.  Seamless, I tell ya!

Javier Lopez – You know those marble puzzles where you tilt the board and you try and get the marble to fall out the hole?  Okay, imagine the marble is “Who’s going to close for the Giants?” and the maze board is Bochy’s head.

SELL

Patrick Corbin – Innings limits are gonna shutdown quite few of our faves:  Michael Fiers, Marco Estrada, Strasburg (though don’t drop him), Matt Harvey, Chris Sale, all the Rockies starters (but who cares), Samardzijaqwertyuiop, etc.  At this point in the season, you’re best to look at the Stream-o-Nator and play matchups rather than worry what’s a guy gonna be like in three weeks’ time.

Jason Kubel – How did I come upon his name?  I went to our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater and sorted by the last 20 days and scrolled down to the bottom.  Yikes, Kubel’s been a to the trocious.

Mark Teixeira – Okay, everyone knows Gangnam Style.  If you don’t, I feel sad for you.  Now, usually Gangnam Style has you prancing around your yard while your neighbors think you have an illegally-obtained horse.  As awesome as that is, if you’re listening to Gangnam Style in super slo-mo, then it’s like everything else in super slo-mo, depressing.  You can’t do the imaginary horse riding dance in super-slo, it makes you look like you’re churning butter.  No girl is gonna think you’re cool when you’re doing the Amish man, making butter dance.  Now, to tie in this in the most tangentially possible ways, listening to Gangnam Style in slo-mo is owning Te(i)x.  He’s got an injury that sometimes sidelines players for three weeks.  If the Yankees are getting into the playoffs, are they going to rest Te(i)x or play him hard?  When he was playing recently, he wasn’t doing much.  With rosters expanding, the Yankees aren’t even DL’ing him.  If you have bench room, then, sure, hold him, but I wouldn’t expect much from him the rest of the season, making him droppable.  Oooooooooooppppppppaaaa Gaaaaaaaaanghaaaaaaam Stttttttttyle!  Actually, even in slo-mo it’s awesome.  But Te(i)x is not.

    Ya’ know, I had a stache until my forties (The “Rat”), it made me the world’s coolest guy. One day whiskered-one… when grey annoints your keppie, the stache will no longer have it’s place. Do not despair though, the blackness of your locks will be greatly admired.

    RestOfYear: Alvarez, Lind, or Rizzo?

    Thanks ever-so.

        @Grey, the gray… the gray (it was before JustForMen!), now I have a young face at 58. You may prize it too one day.

        Also, lovin the Commenter league; I’ve been 3rd in my division, but around 30th overall (RCL 3). Try’in the football version this year.

        Trippin for your great insight and humor. Like no other.

    NL Only 4×4 12-tm keeper. Looking to stash Crawford, what’s a good bid to keep him at next season? Or should I pass? What can we expect from him next year?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d go to $7… Think he could be valuable in NL-Only…

  5. I’m looking to replace Lynne at RP with either Iwakuma or Villanueva. Which do you think will be more productive through years end?

    bwt, a few other availible players at RP are:
    stults
    estrada
    bailey

    Thanks for the advice!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d go Estrada then Villanueva…

  6. Close call to qualify for the playoffs this weekend. To soothe the painful loss of Jansen, would you grab Lopez, League or Gregerson? Thanks so much.

    A matchbox twenty reference this morning and now a Rob Thomas one in the buy/sell. Are we feeling our feminine side today? Is this a test to our(commentors) trust in you? I just know I’m getting confused with all this.

    When LT referenced blasting some seven mary three two weeks ago I was wondering if this was some sick joke, I’m still trying to get that puke taste out of my mouth. It’s better to just not let us know, some things are best left to yourself. I know I have strong musical opinions, but damnit I am Jack Full of Hate and today’s hate has been brought to you by a lifetime of catholic guilt and a stiff cocktail of cynicism, pessimism, and a splash of bitters!

  10. Please rank these starters ROS in 5X5 Roto, need to pick up three or four SP’s and drop some closers to catch K’s & W’s while not damaging whip and ERA to the extreme (I need it all):

    Volquez
    Estrada
    Kendrick
    Masterson
    Minor
    Hochevar
    Harrell
    Dog Shit
    Romero

      Ha, nice next to last one… Minor, Volquez (at home), Estrada, Kendrick… But these are mostly streamers…

    I’m fed up with my middle infidels terrorizing my 12 team daily league. I’m rocking Uggla and Espinosa and Ciriaco with two of them playing every day. I’m tempted to fire the whole lot of them but can you pick three of these guys to roster and rank them so I know who to start on an typical day.

    -Uggla, Espinosa, Ciriaco, EverCab, Nelson, Yunel, Machado

    I need the completely non-complementary categories of RBI’s and SB most desperately.

      Uggla, Yunel, Ciriaco…

    So at the trade deadline I paired a bad trade with a bad non-trade. Gave up Bailey and Rios for Kenley and Morse; turned down his Stanton for my Bumgarner.

    How you like them apples? Yeah, they’re full of worms. Also, made of stale marzipan.

    Hmmm…What round is Austin Jackson going to targeted next year? My gut likes him but my gut told me Tulo will be back this year and I don’t know if it is logical. Thanks

    • Grey

      Your gut’s not bad, just a little hungry… Austin will probably be around the 9th round of 12 team leagues… I’ll like him, too…

  16. Dynamite Dan says:
    (link)

    What up Grey!

    Ive locked up my playoff spot and I have 3 waiver add/drops left to make that playoff push.

    In an OPS league with limited roster/waiver moves and a small 3 player bench. I want to solidify my team for next week today so I can use my next week waivers on the Stream-o-Nator
    Don’t worry about the guys I am dropping…they are all bums.

    1. Which OF should I pick up?
    Reddick, Venable, Carter, McClouth, Saunders, Duda, Moreland, Murphy, Dirks

    2. Which any 3 other players should I pick up?
    Reddick, Venable, Carter, McClouth, Saunders, C Santana, Donaldson, Nelson, Duda, Gomez, Moreland, Murphy, Dirks, Scutaro, Arias

    3. Is it wise to use my 3rd bench spot on…
    3a) Carlos Santana? (My C and 1b are Rosaio and Votto (who might not play every day?)
    3b)….a better hitter
    3c) or a 2 start pitcher

    My other 2 Bench Spots are a 2 starter and a Stream-O-Nator player.

    4. Should I be worried about Rutledge and ROsario being away form home every game next week?

    Sorry about the excessive amount of questions. I had to wait till the end of the week to ask after your buy/sell column….

    And A sincere thank you for all of your help this year.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      What up, Dynamite? 1. Reddick 2. Duda, Murphy, Gomez 3. C 4. Yup No problem…

  17. Justin says:
    (link)

    Grey,

    Ive got Holland, Reed and Willhelmsen who are all throwing strong right now.

    Do I need to pick up/waste a roster spot on a league/belisario? Or should I just roll with those 3

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Roll with those 3…

  18. Justin says:

    Corbin was in your sells…but the dude is still good for next week, right?

    Corbin should be @SF and then @SD
    What about Skaggs @ SD?

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, both are fine until shutdown…

  19. TJ says:
    (link)

    20 team league, 3 OF, ready to bench Kubel next week. Better option going forward, Duda (picked him up yesterday) or Kendrys Morales (dropped, just cleared waivers)? I feel like Morales is safer but Duda has higher upside. My other OF are Hamilton and CarGo lite, and I’m already locked into a playoff spot

    • Grey

      Grey says:

    Would you drop Brett Wallace for Chris Nelson?
    How about dropping Colby Rasmus for Trayvon Robinson?

    Need OBP and some steals.
    Thanks!

    Hey Grey I know we’re a little away from next years rankings, but I’m in a league with OBP instead of AVG, and my team kind of dropped the ball on OBP this year. Any chance we can get you to possibly include OBP with next years rankings?

    Jeez Louise, am getting pegged back in steals, haven’t gotten any steals out of Andrus, Dread Pirate and Hanley for what seems like a month now.

    Earlier today, at a wedding outside of SF, I struck up a conversation with an old friend’s boyfriend and found out that not only does he play fbb but he’s a long-time razzball reader. Stoked! About 45 minutes to an hour later, while I was telling him about my insane offense in my 14 team h2h, I realized that our dates had been gone for who knows how long. Then he asked about my pitching, and I thought, eh, I’m sure they’ll turn up.

        @Grey, He does, but said he hasn’t commented much. Something “California,” like “Robert California” or “Motel California”; it didn’t ring a bell so I seem to have forgotten it.

        Another funny thing was that I missed the fresh oyster bar because of the fbb conversation, and my wife told me that if I ever quit playing fbb, this would be a good story to justify it. Or at least that’s what I think she said…I was busy congratulating my new FBB for having picked up Dunn for $1 in his auction league…

            @Grey, Ha! Oblivious me told her that I would just get some oysters at the bar at our hotel while she was putting the baby to sleep. I later realized that I didn’t want to be that dude at the bar by himself chatting up the bartender about the A’s and eating oysters alone. (Btw, I totally recommend Cavallo Point if you’re ever looking to spring for a fancy place to stay in the SF area.)

              Where in SF is it?

                @Grey, It’s a renovated fort in a state park in Sausalito, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The wedding we went to was around there and I didn’t want to deal w city parking and traffic on a holiday weekend, especially because I apparently have the worlds only baby that hates being in a car. Tough break for her that we live in southern CA.

                  Ah… Yeah, Sausilto’s gorgeous… You drove from San Diego to SF? That’s a serious hike…

                    @Grey, Crap no! That would be ridiculous. We flew from SD to OAK. I meant that it’s a tough break for her that we live in Southern California because it pretty much guarantees that she’ll often have to be in a car, stuck in traffic on the 5.

                      @Grey, Royce!, I’m a SoCal living in NoCal. I’ve been to CP many times. Fantastic place. I hope you had nice weather. We escaped SF fog for Carmel Valley where I pathetically monitored myteams from poolside. Royce, finally overcame Lincecum/Haren to move into second,about 20 points behind you. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

    Do you like A.j. Griffin after his win tonight, or to early to tell? Drop Vargas for him?

      I like him, but I wouldn’t drop Vargas for him…

    Grey-

    Tied in Wins and Losses/era and whip a matter of 0.10 away from each other. Garbage on the waivers. He has Mcdonald and Romero going. Would you grab Tillman vs the Injured Bombers? looks like they will be without grandy/tex and arod.

    Thanks

    Some schmohawk cut K Jansen (don’t think he has a nickname, he needs one) in my deep 16 teamer.

    Gotta take a shot on him right? If he doesn’t need these blood thinners he could be back by Sept 7th, if he does he’s out for the year as he could bleed to death if hit by a baseball (ESPN’s info not mine).

    i need a texeira replacement…looking where I can gain points – runs, steals, and obp. I know there isn’t much speed at 1b, so maybe I’ll have to just grab a solid 3-4 cat guy and grab a speedster for my bench. Who would you recommend outta these guys for ros (limited transactions left):

    duda, moreland, berkman, morales, ike davis, ackley, michael young, hosmer, rizzo, belt, gomez, moss

    I’m in a very tough spot right now. I’m in the last day of my semifinal match up, and if I win today I’m guaranteed at least 100 bucks with a chance to win $300 in the finals. As a poor college kid, this is like winning the lottery.

    Right now I’m leading 7-6-1 with comfortable leads in runs, total bases, steals, and wins. The only thing he’s running away with is saves. All other categories are within a few points of each other.

    My offense is as loaded as it can be, so as long as everyone plays there should be a good chance I’ll hold him off in RBI and homers, with avg and ops being toss ups. This means I definitely have to key in on my pitching. As of right now, I only have Brett Anderson going and he has Capuano, Westbrook, and Arroyo. I want to pick up one, maybe two, more starters for today and hope they don’t get blown up. The S.O.N. likes McAllister vs TEX and Iwakuma vs LAA, but sexier names like McDonald and Buehrle are available.

    Help me choose wisely because if I end up holding him off for the week, you can expect a scrumptious daiquiri to be headed your way.

    P.s. Can I just move Trout from my offense to my pitching? How about he just pitches from centerfield?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Ha… McDonald and Buehrle… Hope it works out for you…

      • Poo Holes says:

        @Grey, Do you like them over Holland @CLE without Asdruble and Choo?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Nah, go with Holland over McAllister…

          • Poo Holes says:
            (link)

            @Grey, So the three guys I’m starting should be Anderson (already on my team), Buehrle, and McDonald? I’d have to drop a guy like Tim Hudson if I wanted to start a 4th guy (Holland).

            • Grey

              Grey says:

              Go with the first 3…

              • Poo Holes says:
                (link)

                @Grey, Rosters are already locked and I went with Anderson, Holland, and Iwakuma. I tried to scramble to get McDonald last second but it was too late. Good thing I didn’t get Buehrle after that 1st inning grand slam to Bay.

    I needs me some September SAGNOF. Deep NL 5×5 league, 10 teams w/32-man rosters means there are no lurking steals or saves. Billy Hamilton is gone and he isn’t even coming up; my bullpen is leaning on the likes or Layton, Grilli and Affeldt for a sniff at closing opportunities.

    Which NL callups might nudge the needle in these categories over the last 4 weeks? I am neck-and-neck and the outcome of these 2 categories will decide our league.

    Thanks—

    Would you drop Ciriaco (currently a bench bat) for League? I like Ciriaco, but he’s not cracking my lineup lately as PAlvarez and Car(a mia!)los Gomez currently hold the last two Util spots. My closers are Perez, Wilhelmsen, and Holland, but another wouldn’t hurt. Your sage advice is much appreciated…thanks!
