Sell George Springer?  Are you mad, man?  You’re not Joan, that’s for sure.  You could be Bertram Cooper, because you are dead to me.  I know, it’s blasphemy of the highest order.  Springer, for Chris Cooper in Lone Star’s sake, is on the cover of Sports Illustrated!  Of course, that’s assuming anyone actually sees a cover of anything.  Are there magazines anymore?  That’s a question for Stephen Hawking’s Speak ‘n Spell!  That would be a great trick question for an alien.  True or false, the smartest man on the planet uses a toy for a 5-year-old to speak.  Guarantee that I’d trip up Andrelton Simmons with that question.  Any the hoo!  Springer is striking out like an insane man.  If he continues on this rate, he may not hit above .200.  For serious.  He’s making Adam Dunn look selective.  Since 2000, he has the 15th worst K-rate.  Only two guys hit above .259 in that time frame with that bad of a K-rate, and one of them needed a .404 BABIP (that means he was lucky).  Most guys averaged around .220.  I don’t doubt Springer will be great.  Maybe even as soon as next year, but he needs to make some serious adjustments, and, with him on the cover of a magazine(!), he’s getting so much pub that you can sell him for a lot more than he’s actually worth.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Taijuan Walker – Rookie pitcher-wise this year in March, there was Tanaka and Walker.  Don’t let Walker’s inability to get into the rotation for three months dampen your enthusiasm.  Turn that emoji upside down.  Walker can be all that and a bag of Fritos with each Frito wrapped in hundred dollar bills, so you can make it rain in my mouth!  Wait, what?

Jesse Hahn – Our new prospect writer, Chris, just went over his Jesse Hahn fantasy.  There he said, “Hahn works off of a 92-94 MPH fastball that can touch 97 with late life, mixing in a heavy low 90?s two-seamer with an overhand curveball and a change that flashes plus at times – the ideal arsenal for success in cavernous Petco Park.  Well, that and a bottle of Chardonnay and a picture of Grey to throw darts at.”  Wow, Chris is gonna fit in just fine!

Carlos Martinez – In the rotation for at least a month and is worth adding in most leagues for upside.  His career thus far hasn’t done his future justice.  Order, order, it’s the case of the man from 2077 vs. the other guy from 2077, who crashed into his flying car.  Future justice!

Brandon McCarthy – Friday was a bare woods for streamers, but Saturday brings you a few via the Stream-o-Nator.  I don’t trust McCarthy at all, but I do trust everyone vs. the Padres so there’s that.  By the by, if someone were to do an Audubon painting of a ‘bare woods for streamers,’ I’d pay them seventy-five cents.  Oh, and ‘I’d pay them seventy-five cents’ is a figure of speech.

Odrisamer Despaigne – Why do I want to call him Otis Spunkmeyer?  Maybe because I can actually pronounce that.  I was proven wrong the other day (first time for everything!).  I said Spunkmeyer was a flamethrower.  That’s inaccurate.  I thought he was a Cuban pitcher in the mold of Aroldis.  He’s a Cuban pitcher in the mold of El Duque.  Specifically, that’s a 47-year-old El Duque, so when he first came into the majors.  Either, or eye-thurr if Mystikal is reading, he pitches in Petco and he could catch snitches off guard.

Joe Smith – The Sciosciapath wants Frieri to be the closer.  Real world example of this lunacy:  a twelfth grade teacher is caught dating one of their students.  The teacher is laid off until the relationship ends then is allowed to come back.

Antonio Bastardo – Since we’re almost in July, it’s time to start stashing guys that could take over after a trade.  Papelbon and his under-bite, white man dancing isn’t going to have the Phillies gig in a month.  My guess is the Phillies will trade him for just about anything, though they’d obviously prefer an overpriced, aging vet.  Say, what’s Ethier’s contract like?

Joaquin Benoit – See what I said about Bastardo and replace overpriced, aging vet with one-time hitting prospect that isn’t that good.  And replace Ethier with Dayan Viciedo or David Freese.

Brad Miller – He’s been nails since the beginning of June, and not Nails like Lenny Dykstra, who is presently asking someone if he can take a whizz.

Jordy Mercer – Every time someone walks into a room, I want to yell out, “Jordy!”  Yes, I am a man of modest wants.

Scooter Gennett – Ron Roenicke refuses to bat Scooter against lefties which kills his value in weekly leagues.  Ron Roenicke, you are found guilty of managerial manslaughter!  You must serve 200 hours of community service and run as the kielbasa through the most Polish neighborhood we have while they are outside grilling.  Scooter is a solid option in leagues where you can platoon him though.

Mike Zunino – El Zunino is ravaging opposing pitchers, but will likely bring a cold front in a week or so.  Take a sweater, young man!

Travis d’Arnaud – I actually gave you a Travis d’Arnaud fantasy nine months ago that still applies.  Or still apples, if you’re an archer.

Kole Calhoun – I’ll say this, if you want to keep what little hair you got left on your dome, do not own too many Angels, The Sciosciapath will drive you crazy.

Alejandro De Aza – No one is talking about De Aza, so I guess I have to.  Well….Uh…Hmm…Maybe that’s why no one is talking about him.  Okay, I got it!  He’s hitting around .350 in his last two weeks with three steals.

Jarrod Dyson – With Aoki not Aoki-dokie in the groin — hehe, WHAT?! — Dyson has been playing every day.  SAGNOF like you’ve never SAGNOF’d before.  Then SAGNOF some more.  Then SAGNOF like there’s five minutes left in the half and the Brazilian girl in the front row won’t wait for extra time.

Mookie Betts – I just went over my Mookie Betts fantasy.  It was written while flapping my back arm like Joe Morgan.

C.J. Cron – I just went over him this morning.  If you use the thing under your hand, you’ll find it.  I meant your mouse, why are you sitting in front of a electronic keyboard wearing a skinny tie?

Steve Pearce – He’s being overshadowed by J.D. Martinez’s hot streak, but Pearce has only been slightly less than that.  Bee tee dubs, Martinez wasn’t listed because he’s owned in more than 50% of ESPN leagues.  If he’s available, obviously you grab him.

Lucas Duda – Last week was the Buy column of all buy columns for middle infidels, this week it’s their corner counterparts.  Now I will throw it to Lucas…Duda!  When I say throw it to, you say Lucas…Duda!  Sorry, my dog loves when I chant nonsense.  He turns his head.  It’s cute.  Any the hoo!  Duda’s been hot fire like after you eat Mexican.

Carlos Pena – I could see him hitting some homers and going 1-for-124 at the plate.  Or somewhere in between.  Probably somewhere in between.

Logan Morrison – Fact!  If Morrison ever tweets with Dallas Latos, the world would explode.  Oh, and Morrison’s been hot, now stay away from bathtubs in Paris!

Grant Green – The Angels were sick of how cold Freese was so they got Grant Green.  Pun point!  Green has solid plate discipline recently, which has led to a .320-ish average in his last two stops in the minors and the majors this year.  He doesn’t have big power or speed.  He kinda reminds me of what people thought of Freese two to (stutterer!) three years ago.  I’m not rushing to grab Green, but if you’re hurting at corner, I could see it.

Cody Asche – Uh-oh, I feel a Def Jam poem coming on.  I told you Brad Miller and Cody Asche would be great.  What’s with the hate?  Like you’re in a hot tub with Kathy de-Bates, over if you need more Bubbles.  Locked in his sister’s basement.  From the projects he came/went/came/went depending on the season.  It’s summer.

SELL

Gregory Polanco – I am bursting some balloons today!  It’s all about instilling some reality into fantasy.  Doesn’t that sound like fun?  The reality is Polanco will be around a 9-homer, 15-steal guy this year.  To grab one name from above, you could get that from De Aza.  Is there any world where De Aza is tradeable?  Not unless it’s a league that only uses White Sox players, and in that league I’d gamble on Ron Kittle making a comeback.  Polanco, on the other hand — where on my hand? My thumb? — has trade value.  People think he’s more valuable than he likely will be.  For this year.  I’m not talking keepers.  Even in redraft leagues, I wouldn’t trade Polanco for an airplane seat next to Gary Busey, but I would explore offers.

    Jesse Hahn or Carlos Martinez?

      Hahn

    Interesting sell call on Polonco. I see your reasoning. I’ve had thoughts along the same lines, but it would be interesting to hear your take on him in a keeper league. For example, my league you can keep up to 6 players in exchange for the draft pick -1 that the player was taken the previous year. In a 10 team league do you feel Polonco is a top 60 player (and thus a keeper) going forward into 2015? Since he was a FA pickup, he costs me my last round pick.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d hold him tightly there

    Thinking of trying to trade for Rizzo to add some pop to my UTI spot. Right now I have two SS on my roster so I would probably include one of them to make room. From the two SS, who would you rather keep ROS with counting stats OBP,R,SB,HR,RBI,SLG.

    Jose Reyes
    Elvis Andrus

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d prefer Reyes, but I don’t think you’re getting Rizzo with either

      • Spencer says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Oh no, not expecting that. Gonna add at least one more guy from my side but figured the name recognition with one of my SS would get his interest up.

    Nice Morrison reference. How much would you bid on Betts if you only had $210 of $100 faab left. Need SB like MoFo.

        @Grey:

        the revenge of Mr . Math
        nicely done .

        btw :
        added gausman to my dynasty league team last year ,
        but , due to league rules , had to remain on the major league roster for the entire year .
        (that’s the price you pay for pulling an end-run around the minor-draft) .
        demoted him to my minor’s team , at the start of 2014 , and plan on keeping
        him there until 2015 .

          @costaricanchata:

          pulled the same “end-run” move with heaney , this spring .
          the things one has to do , to build a dynasty league staff .
          unlike with gausman , i may actually use heaney more than one or twice
          this year .
          it’s just too tempting … staring at that dead spot in the line-up , all year .
          (plus heaney came up sooner) .

            (link)

            @costaricanchata:

            * either he stays on my major league roster all year ,
            or i drop him and he’s fair-game for other owners .
            no demoting heaney to the minors until 2015 .

              yep .
              back in 2012 , in the 14-teamer ,
              took kershaw with the 12th pick ,
              yu with the 73rd
              and henderson alvarez with the 213th (since , jettisoned)
              as my only SP ‘s .
              now , if those can just stay young for a few more years ….
              i might just capture a title .

              added kluber last year , and arrieta this year ,
              and somehow am sitting atop the standings …
              for however long that lasts .

    Trade Yadi to get D. Norris and Cashner? (Ramos is on waivers, so I could then swap Norris for him if I made the trade).

    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d take Cash side

    Also somehow in first place in a keeper with Xander and Prado manning MI and 3B. I have Xander at a low rate for next season, would it be worth going after Wright to win this season?

        @Grey: Frazier didn’t even cross my mind – thanks! Let’s see how it goes…

        Believe it or not, Seager is on waivers in my 10 team H2H league. I keep almost dropping Mr. Glass (R. Zimm) to grab him.

      Abreu, Rizzo

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
            (link)

            @Grey: i agree now, shitty part is i only didn’t draft rizzo (or abreu) in some leagues due to already having goldy/pujols (and those 2 went in first 5 rounds). this is even though compared to both yahoo/espn rankings Grey’s rankings had rizzo/abreu higher (rizzo much higher). rounds would click off still showing rizzo at top of my board. should’ve just used up both utils in some leagues (these didn’t have CI spots) with all three of those guys (or traded one of them later).

  16. The Borzoi says:

    Hey Grey,
    Need to replace D Santana at 2nd base. I am in a 10 team OBP keeper league. Who would you grab in a “sexual get you to the playoffs and possibly be usable next year” kind of way?

    Howie K
    Scooter G
    B Miller

    Thanks

        (link)

        Not really on bench, I use him when Zobrist has a tough matchup, or the other way around. Thanks. Last thing, what about Gausman, with this start today would you hold on to him, or drop. Standard 12 team league.

        • Grey

            Could be Hahn or Despaigne from your buy list. Nelson could be called up sooner rather then later but really hate keeping NA pitchers. Bastardo is available but I already picked up Benoit. Jeff Locke maybe?

    Grey, huge fan of your work for many years. Gentlemen’s bet: Polanco steals 25+ bases, He’s almost been getting one per game since he started running last week. I wonder if Clint Hurdle was holding him back from stealing bases the first few weeks in the bigs while he got his feet wet. I think you’re spot on regarding the power projection though.

    Hey Grey. Happy Friday!

    5×5, h2h, redraft, 10 teams

    These are just some ideas that I had for trades…not sure if they are fair.

    Trade Springer for Cargo?
    Trade Springer/Melancon for Cano? (I have Kipnis)
    Trade Springer/Melancon for McCutcheon?

    Please answer each as I am not in a position to state that any of them could come true.

        Gotcha. Didn’t know if they were fair.

        Any recommended targets for Springer? Or a Springer/Melancon combo?

        My thought was to try to upgrade somewhere.

        10 Team, 5xh, h2h, redraft, 16 player rosters (so the FA pool has a lot of talent)

        3B – Aramis Ramirez
        SS – Segura
        OF – Puig
        OF – J Upton
        OF – Polanco
        UTIL – Pujols
        Bench – Springer
        Bench – Kris Davis

        SP – Kershaw
        SP – Strasburg
        SP – Kluber
        SP – Ventura
        SP – Bailey
        SP – Wood
        RP – Doolittle

        Interesting response. I thought that you would pick Bailey. Do you rank any of the following over Homer Bailey in the short term? ROS?

        - T Walker
        - M Stroman

      @Sky: I can see the ad campaign for his election: “electing me would be a stroke of genius. ” or “sick and tired of being rubbed the wrong way by the government?” Or “vote for me or you’ll go blind.”

      He could also mention his criminal past and how he managed to get his life together. That would tug at the heart strings. “Did someone say tug?”

    in a league where i am pretty much guaranteed to win K’s this week and am currently winning era/whip 4.50/1.07 to 6.65/1.73 and my record is 3-3 with opp’s being 2-4 (losses is a category here (installed a year before i joined league to penalize people who streamed just to win wins and K’s)), should i bench odorizzi today? if he sucked i was gonna drop him for stroman anyway. my other starts rest of week are
    keuchel vs DET
    gray @ MIA
    cobb @ BAL
    colon @ PIT
    heaney vs OAK
    opp’s remaining starts are
    greinke vs STL
    miller @ LAD
    lackey @ NYY
    also if opp doesn’t stream anything i could bench other starts (heaney)
    2. also, if odorizzi is great again today would heaney be the drop for stroman?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Sure 2. I’d hold

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

    Springer related trade question!

    In win now mode in a deep 16-team keeper league with no streaming pitchers. Give up 2 years each of Springer, Baez, and Arenado for 2 years of Alex Wood and this season of Goldy and Shoemaker?

    Need starting pitching and could always go for more offense with Goldy. I have Frazier so Arenado is expendable (wouldn’t even have a spot in starting lineup when he gets of DL).

    hey grey, so I follow bleacher report for some advice too (, still take this advice over it, hence my next question). in their ‘sell high, buy low piece” they featured two of my pitchers. Grienke/shields as both sell high candidates.

    personally i think sheilds has no sell high value, he’s been terrible in his last slew of starts. do you think he returns somewhere in between the begininng of the year to now, or is now the new reality.

    Grienke I do think is a sell high candidate. i’ve been trying to deal him all year but he started hot and rode it to now.

    would you deal grienke + alex gordon for a chris sale/bumgarner level of pitcher. I ultimately need a pitcher upgrade, but chris sale scares me with injury concerns.

    or just hold grienke/shields and pray for turnarounds.

    as always, thanks

    In a 6×5 H2H OBP league that counts errors. Donaldson has been horrible defensively but I’m hoping my league mates don’t focus much on that when making a trade. Is my Donaldson and Polanco for EITHER Trout or Goldschmidt going to piss my trading partner off or is it in the ballpark of being fair assuming that he considers Polanco, like you said, “more valuable than he likely will be?” (that’s me quoting you)

    by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
    (05:20 pm ET) Mets third baseman David Wright is out of the lineup Friday, and will likely miss Saturday’s game against the Pirates as well, due to a sore left shoulder.

    The team announced his absence before first pitch Friday. Wright will head to New York for an MRI Saturday, and it is not clear when he might return to the lineup. According to Newsday, Wright has maintained that he is healthy, despite hitting just .277/.333/.396 with six home runs in 79 games.

          No problem

  64. I have a very serious question..

    Is it possible for a commish of a league to be able to change the final score of an H2H game?

    Case in point:

    Back in May, shows you how slow CBS is to getting back to a paying customer, any the yoohoo, 2 teams in our H2H points league had their game end with one team ahead by 1 point and then after the scores were made final and the CBS report came out the game ended in a tie, AND then, later in the day, the team that had lost, now won..

    I would not care but the winning team is only one game behind my 9-3 record, the losing team is in last place and does not really care…

    The commish says email CBS, not his problem, the team that won, “said sure I called the commish and told him I need the win real bad and he changed it for me..

    AGAIN, my question is, can a commish make that kind of change??

    cheers

        @Grey: im thinking grilli has a better chance of becoming a closer than frieri… melancon’s pitched well outside of recently

    12-team 5×5 Roto non-keeper

    In hitting and pitching categories, I am at 8/12/12/7/12 … 12/11/10/4/8. 1st place team

    20+ ahead in HR and 20+ ahead in RBI. I pitching is shaky and I am not sure how it is going to hold up. My SPs are Price, M. Minor, J. Weaver, Iwakuma, CJ Wilson, G. Richards, S. Miller and Cashner (DL pickup off of the WW). Closers are Kimbrel, Uehara, Britton and Nathan.

    I have been offered Masahiro Tanaka for Jose Abreu (me)

    Is this trade worth taking a chance on or should I hold? Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Hey Grey — 5×5 NL-only keeper league: I need runs, and am SP good. Would you trade my Scooter G ($1) and Aaron Harang for his Daniel Murphy ($15)? I’m playing to win this year, which is why I’m considering it.

  72. Fo' Shizzo My Rizzo says:

    I have Springer and was just offered Altuve straight up. I could use the average and steals.

    Hill is my 2B and Revere is available on the waiver wire for SAGNOF. I might have a tough time finding a spot for Revere in OF/Util though. Harper is about to come off the DL for me.

    I’m torn. Do you think I could get more in return?

  74. A question about Polanco … I have him in a 14-team league where we can keep two players drafted in the 5th round at a certain premium. Undrafted players (like Polanco) cost a 12th-round pick to keep. Would you guess Polanco would be worth keeping under those rules? Barring injury, seems pretty clear he’d be a top 150 (at least) player next season, no?

    • @Enrique: should have written “5th round or later…”

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      He’d be a keeper there, likely

    Grey would you trade Springer for Jacoby if you needed a boost in speed and average even if Springer is a 16th round keeper for next season 12 team H2H. Jacoby would not be kept as a 2nd.

I’m trying to deal Ozuna (bench ) for one, but getting turn down a lot: Reyes ,Rollins, Utley,…… I might be able to get Zorbrist, can he turn it around? And if I can’t get someone which one of these Free agent choices to pickup: Callaspo, E.Suarez, LeMahieu, Jeter, DiDi, Weeks or Rutledge (who I just cut)?

    now that frieri has no value at ALL (PIT isn’t stupid, and have probably 4 other guys they’d make closer ahead of frieri). in 14 team roto with holds/K to BB/ RW/net saves and only 24 moves left for year who’s best out of medina/freeman/benoit/bastardo/dunn/r.webb/gregg (just became set up ahead of ramos for sure and maybe dunn also)/farquar. rest of bullpen is joba/smith/k-rob/w.davis. i have room for another RP on top of frieri replacement, but i want to keep up in projected innings before i do that, and we have a lot of innings allowed (1750)

    Hey grey- love the posts!!

    I’m looking ahead for next week (matchup 14), which pitcher who has two starts would you add + start out of these & their matchups:

    Jake arrieta (@ Boston redsox vs peavy & start 2 @ Washington vs Jordan Zimmerman)

    Matt latos (@ padres vs Hahn & start 2 home in cincy vs brewers vs gallardo)

    Tim linceucum ( home in SF vs cardinals vs Gonzales & start 2 @ padres vs Hahn)

    I’m leaning towards latos & arrieta, but what are your thoughts on them?

    Question 2; keep or drop keuchel? I have him as my RP but I didn’t know if you would drop him for someone with 2 starts; I’m looking at these Pitchers who are SP/RP so I can plug @ RP

    Danny Duffy ( @ Minnesota vs deduno & start 2 @ Cleveland vs kluber)

    Dave phelps (home in NY vs rays vs archer & start 2 @ Minnesota vs nolasco)

    & I plan on adding Alex wood for my other RP spot (we have 2 RP spots) by dropping smyly

    I may be in a predicament next week (or for 15 days) if David wright is placed on 15 day DL, he’s missing this weekends series & only way they can add Wilmer Flores (I think that’s his name) they would have to DL wright.

    If that’s the case I’ll wait & see if I hear any news but the big IF, he does in fact go on DL, would you just stick Carlos Santana who has eligibilty at 3b there? I currently have him as my DH, if this does happen here are available DH’s;

    Steve Pearce , Baltimore

    Adam Lind, Toronto

    Mark Reynolds , Milwaukee

    Kendrys morales, twins

    Adam Dunn, white sox

    CJ cron, angels

    These are a few DH’s available

    Or I could leave Santana as DH & and a short term fix at 3b; here are some available;

    Aramis Ramirez, Mark Reynolds has eligibility at 3b, Kyle seager, mike moustakas, or Martin prado .

    Lol now as typing this speaking of injuries just got the notification that my catcher Evan gattis left the game in the first inning due to a right rhomboid (back muscle) spasm- hopefully for my team it’s nothing more than a back spasm & it’s nothing of greater concern such as a DL stint because I already have to drop 1 person when I activate Harper next week, if they are going to DL wright I don’t have a prob with it I just would (& I’m sure other wright owners would to) rather know early the better/ this is also a weekly lock/ redraft / h2h points / 10 team

    Sorry it’s a lot, just a lot w/ my team right now, thanks in advance master grey! Have a great weekend!

    • Grey

        @Grey:

        Thanks grey for the response!
        Since you’d go with Santana, I’m assuming Santana @ 3rd over wright (if wright gets the good ole DL), if that’s the case who’d you like at DH?

        I read your post about Mookie betts, & as a sox fan here in the Boston area, I hope he gets the call up soon he can play & the sox could use a boost- that’s for sure! I remember seeing him play when he was at single A Lowell spinners.
        Have a good evening matey!

    If you remember, I picked up Melancon with the intention of trading him for a starter. For a while my options looked bleak with possibly Beckett and Roark as my top options via trade. Even those were not a guarantee. Well today I traded him for Minor. How did I do?

    soria and k-rob are weird dominant closers. almost all of their earned runs have come in a very few isolated appearances. so really, in H2H leagues, they’re probably much better than their ERA’s would indicate. since most weeks they probably have no earned. maybe 2 different weeks they have 4.

    Fun read as always.

    I have a couple of quandaries to throw at you for my dynasty team. 2b/ss is a weak spot for me as i’m juggling between dietrich and odor who currently sits in my minors (17 ab’s? left). villar holding down ss. should I consider polanco from the twins who may have both 2b/ss soon? does he have long term potential? my team is contending but barely hanging on!

    pitching wise wondering what to do about erasmo and rubby de la soul. hold either one or just punt?

  125. Brian says:

    NL Only league question.

    Is it time to trade Starling Marte for Todd Frazier? Or is that selling low and buying high?

    I’m winning SB by 23 (more that Marte has this year) and runs by 20 and am acing all the hitting categories except for RBI (3rd – 14 from the top). All positions look okay except for 3B which is currently Cody Asche, but basically revolves between Asche, Valbuena, and Headley depending on how I’m feeling.

    bench one of these tomorrow. winning homers still by 5 even with getting outhomered fri by 2. winning rbi/runs by 4 each. down so much in average and like 10 hits it may be time just to solidify cats i own. down 1 steal so those are probably most important now, along with bases, down 6 of those. Already benching Springer since i would rather have solid production when i’m winning homers/rbi’s. Going for steals/bases overall production. bench one of
    pujols @ ventura
    rios (no hits this week) vs hughes
    harrison vs niese (lefty), already benched 2 steals by him this week.
    polanco vs niese (lefty)
    a.gordon (no hits this week) vs santiago (lefty)
    not benching scooter the way he’s going, and not benching goldy (no matter how he’s doing, 1 hit this week), nor longo (doing ok this week). almost no way mesoraco goes tomorrow (would be 6th day in a row), and rosario’s hurt again.

  135. Inglourious Dirty Ol' Basterd says:
    (link)

    So, after Mr. Gassy took a dump on the rubber yesterday, would you drop him for Mookie? I have a slight edge towards needing a 2B or an SP more than others, but at the end of the day, I’d rather just have the best ROS player and/or best keeper. Others available are Odorizzi, Eovaldi, Hahn, Cron, Wong, Holt, Willingham, Calhoun, JD Martinez. Also kinda wanna drop Ozuna, but like his flexibility; that’s also why I’m eyeing Holt.

    Hold all OR drop Gaus or Ozuna OR drop both and who then to pick up? Still working on consolidating via trade and upgrading at 2B from Pedroia like we discussed, but right now just looking at bettering my existing roster. Trying to pry away Kipnis, but the other owner’s not a dummy.

    Hey Grey I meant to ask you yesterday but is Mookie worth adding to my team? And if yes, who to drop for him? Normally I don’t like having bench bats but I’ve been riding Cron’s hot streak for now while Bautista has been out and will probably end up adding Singleton again once Cron cools off. I’m thinking Gausman would be the drop since I was gonna probably gonna stream another pitcher out of his spot tomorrow anyway but then I’d have 2 potential bench bats! Just don’t know if Mookie is worth the add!? What would Grey do?

    I did not draft pitching this year but my staff is terrible..

    Ventura, Heanley, Mike Minor, Phil Hughes, Dan Haren, Gallardo, Kevin Gausmen, Nathan Eovaldi, Zack Wheeler…

    I was thinking of maybe cutting Haren, Wheeler and Gausmen and picking up some middle RP.

    Dellin Betanches, Wade Davis and Jack McGee to form an SP1.

    And maybe drop 1 more to just open up a streaming spot.

    Bad idea?

      @Thomas: Gotta have Davis and Dellin…I’d go Gaus and Haren…don’t get too crazy

    i’m in a league where i grabbed keuchel, who was dropped a few days ago. turns out previous owner somehow knows some dudes in front offices (or says he does) and he knew about keuchel injury about 3 days before media heard anything. may be out a while he says. so dumbshit HOU manager did injure him leaving him out extra long in those 2 or 3 starts (esp one where he sucked and was losing left him out for the 8th inning. or the 9th that other time when his pitch count was already high). idiot

      @goodfold2: if true, at least i’ll have room for gee in 2 spots.

      @goodfold2: Hmmm…a little insider trading. Well at least it was a drop and not a trade. You had to add Kuechel at the time though so take some solace in that

        @Mello Yello: i have DL room in that league so i still think it’ll be good decision, unless he needs elbow surgery or some shit.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: plus when he DL’s i can get heaney back, or go leake/stroman/smyly (finally better than Loogy after i drop him for destroying me so many times)

    Hey Grey, need a bit of advice! In my 16 Team 5×5 Dynasty I’m struggling with consistency with my hitters and was wondering if you would trade Votto, Pedro Alvarez and Alex Rios for Kyle Seager and Carlos Gomez. Here is my lineup…

    1B Votto, Howard, Cron
    2B Pedroia
    SS Zobrist, Owings

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: hope so, since i’ll have to attempt to get petricka after waivers now. is ventura finally getting smart (having best RP close)? goes from abject idiot to smart guy in one day. even left him in for 2 innings. thing that’s most sure is guerra isn’t the guy right now.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      It’s far from over as to who’s going to get saves there

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: right, but at least as a defensive move i’m sure we’d grab putnam first now though. while it’s possible it goes back to petricka the fact that ventura stuck with putnam through whole inning and had him play 2 innings would make somebody else in 16 teamer pick him up. thinking i kind of had to grab him and drop petricka.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: like it’s a chess game, putnam is simply best move right now, doesn’t mean we win the game, but we are getting closer to being favored to?

        @Grey: I take it back. I’m not giving Cespedes for Kipnis. He’s better than Kipnis. He rejected Choo and Hamilton for Kipnis. Says he wants a better CF. My OF is Bruce, Choo, Marte, Springer, Cespedes, Ozuna, JHam, and Khrush. I’ve also got AGonz and Beltre to offer, but he’s got Donaldson and Ortiz, and I believe he’s focused on youth. What would you counter with to get Kipnis, or ideally, Kipnis and Taveras?

          • Inglourious Dirty Ol' Basterd says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Would you do that, or would you hold? I mean, Pedroia can hold down the fort til I can land a better 2B if I’m reaching too far. Trying to consolidate per your sound advice, but I think Springer will bring his average and speed back sometime this season or next. I think he’s just experimenting with power and could be a legit 30/20 badass. Do you disagree?

    I’ve got Segura and pretty much done with the guy. His sub .280 OBP is draining to look at everyday and makes it real tough to steal bases when you’re never on base. Willing to give Betts a shot, here’s my roster:

    C – Rosario
    1B – Moss/Morneau
    2B – Carpenter
    3B – Beltre
    SS – Segura
    OF – Stanton/Jones/Gordon/Dickerson/Springer/K Davis

    2 deep league questions
    1. 20 team with OPS/slugging/total bases (so pretty much slugging three times) trying to trade dom brown for brad miller, when that don’t work, should i just drop him (he’s my 4th OF, we only start 3 and have 1 util, just got saunders back), vogt (will go back to playing with red dick going DL again for the knee)/mayberry (who’s taking brown’s job, with good OPB and slugging)/krispie. vogt can also play C when castro is off.
    2. 16 teamer. keuchel likely getting DL’ed. best replacement in QS H2H.
    koehler (decent lately) vs PHI,@ARI, @NYM
    oberholtzer (good except for 2 6 earned starts, good today) @ LAA, @ TEX
    kendrick @ MIA, @ MIL, vs WAS
    workman vs CUBS, vs WSOX, @ HOU

    12 team H2H dynasty with 5 NA slots and 5 DLs. 1 of each type of OF and avg/slug/obp as separate cats with K’s. for pitchers it’s OBA and holds and homers against. this roster. seems pretty good (but not for SP)
    mesoraco
    morneau (can actually root for this guy in one place now)
    pedroia/odor
    reyes
    E5
    upton/calhoun/werth/polanco/rios/k.davis/jennings
    NA guys: mondesi/m.johnson/alcantara/soler/a.meyer
    pitchers:
    dickey/bauer/cain/garza/elias/rubby/hutchison/kluber/richards/kazmir/cashner (not DL’ed yet)
    DL’ed: skaggs/pomeranz/holland/paxton/n.jones
    RP: 5 slots per day. ottavino/f-rod/rodney/smith/reed/perkins
    does these sound like first things i should do with this newly aquired team
    1. drop Rubby de la rosa (we can ONLY have 5 NA guys at a time, i figure using those on good prospects is way to go)
    2. drop ottavino for better holds guy like 1 of :bastardo/medina/putnam/dunn/gregg/farquar/fear the beard/strop/walden/herrera/r.webb/miller. thinking it’s walden here.
    3.trade 1 of my many OF’ers and at least 1 closer for up tick in SP. this team seems weak for 12 teamer in SP. which OF goes first and what order of closers go. i’m thinking A.werth and B.reed/rodney, in that order. try to do 2 for 1′s. and replace those roster spots with a 2nd or 3rd holds guy(s). also which of my SP who’s name value is worth more than their real value should i hope to move first in 2 for 1′s. C. Garza or Cain? (don’t think Dickey has trade value)
    4. with this team i’m thinking keeping mondesi/soler is clear, but should i move any of meyer/alcantara/m.johnson (johnson seems like SAGNOF only) for any of
    g.sanchez (C)/frazier/n.williams/d.j.peterson/meadows/wisler/owens/moran/crick/fried. or any others worth more that you can think of. Lamb maybe

    comish gordon (Tron hates it) vs cj “i have light switches” wilson (lefty)
    springer vs smyly (Tron like this)

    hello, i have 3 first basement, pujols is the worst and no keeper value.

    would you deal pujols + ozuna for anibal or j. zimmerman. i include ozuna because i have to clear up bench spot anyway for harper once he’s back. i’ll prob end up just dropping him

        @Grey:
        thanks for the response. i obviously prefer anibal, but if the guy wont go for it i think j. zimmerman is his 2nd best pitcher. (anibal/zimmerman/weaver/latos/ryu are his best). it’s a 10 team league and there’s a gluttony of 1st basemen thus their trade value is low.

        would you settle for pujols for j. zimmerman. i’ve got goldy and rizzo at first/utility so like i said really no use for pujols

      @goodfold2: still winning era for the week at 5.07 to 5.49 but his will move faster if lackey/miller do well. went into today with only 6 losses in 6 days.2 more coming, at least TB tied it.

        @Grey: wait, BOTH casilla and affeldt are over putnam. i’m guessing this is because SF gets more saves? i missed out on casilla (should’ve just grabbed and asked later, missed by 4 minutes)

        • Grey

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Grey: could even get lucky and putnam stays front runner, while casilla/affeldt do form actual committee. Wonder if Bochy is smart enough to just stick with committee (which Sabr wise really is the math play anyway for closing). I’m sure Ventura isn’t smart enough to stick with committee (he’s the same fool that put Lindstrom over Jones, and Belisario at all, then stuck with him for weeks), he’ll eventually pick one guy (and so far this year best one of those is Putnam). doesn’t mean he picks Putnam of course. like in a poker game it’s not wise to put rational thought (from your perspective) into the heads of idiots.

    damn soria about to lock up losses for the day (even if miller and lackey get loses i’ll only tie). winning bases by 1 with only goldy/rios/pujols vs molina/kipnis/brantley/frazier/ellsbury. i’m pretty screwed in that. only got 12 today (which isn’t utterly horrible, but not good). colon/heaney screwed me in losses. my era lead probably safe with shelby looking like shelby finally.

    which of these closers is fair for arrieta in dynasty. perkins/rodney/f-rod/j.smith (probably can’t trade him as “closer” since we don’t know if he sticks, plus i need holds guys)/reed. opp thinks he’s selling arrieta high (and i suppose he is), but wasn’t there some consensus that he actually changed his pitching (upped the cutters and gained control) and is now a pretty valuable pitcher going forward?
    2. also is werth too much for arrieta or about right.

    1. 14 team roto with QS and K/BB instead of K’s. porcello/hahn/keuchel (sounding like this injury either isn’t bad or it’s too early to say)/wily p/wheeler. or could drop bastardo for now. i’m still under 19 innings to projections and we have 1750 so keeping a lot of starters is kind of smart. i’m still top 3 in holds and saves even without having full amount of RP. also have joba/davis/j.smith/k-rob (with room for 6 RP, but only 5 with bastardo). quite a few bastardo level RP out there
    2. 12 team H2H. i’ll drop stream spot for t.walker. if i’m able to waiver arrieta should i drop keuchel or stick with 8 SP and drop one of my 3 holds guys (have 3 closers and room for 6 RP) in fien or walden. also have betances. hahn/elias/odorizzi are streamers in this league currently.

    Thoughts on the following trades. I know you usually prefer top bats over top arms but my pitching is terrible.

    Donaldson + Hudson for Sale
    Donaldson + Shields for Felix
    Holliday for either Kluber or Sonny Gray (Might be willing to do Holliday + Hudson)

    Considering Werth in place of Holliday for that last trade, how do you rank them ROS?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Take Felix if you want a top arm… Holliday or Werth trades aren’t going to make a difference unless this is a very deep league…

    just noticing that Betts only qualifies at OF in espn. damn. i’m guessing for steals only sticking with Rajai is the plan, man?

    @Grey: weekly roto redraft. Rios or Heyward too much to offer for bailey?

      Not too much… Heyward first

    Hey guys, hope yall are doing well. Work is getting in the way of my FBB time so I haven’t had time to post much this year. At the mid point, both of my teams are in pretty good shape. Both are in second place. Abreu has been huge on one team and Springer has been a big boost on both. I’m looking at trade options for him though per the friday morning post. Best move of the year for me was trading Prince Fielder + EverCab or Votto and Jordan Zimmerman. Votto hasn’t done much, but at least he’s playing and JZim has been fantastic the last month. Should I be trying to trade Votto on his name value or wait for him to start hitting?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Depends what you can get for Votto… I think trading him is a smart move if you can get a decent return

    • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:

      @letsgobravos: wow, hard to believe (even when evercab was projected to do well) anybody would make the getting fielder and evercab side of that. Fielder and Votto were valued close preseason, and J.Zimm is top 25 pitcher vs a slightly better than Sagnof type. great trade at the time you made it too.

      • letsgobravos says:
        (link)

        @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: He actually proposed Votto + Starlin Castro, but I already had Dee Gordon that I obviously felt ok about using as my full time SS going forward so I countered with JZimm who had been pretty pedestrian leading up to the trade at the end of April. Timing wise, it will go down as one of my best trades, especially if Votto picks it up or if I can trade him for something useful.

        I also have Jose Abreu and Pujols on this team so I don’t need Votto at 1b. I only have Rodney and Hawkins at closer in this league so I’m losing saves every week. I know this sounds blasphemous, but would it be a bad move to try and get a middle tier closer + either a solid SP or a bat?

        Here’s my roster. Yahoo pro 100 league 5×5 standard…

        C- Suzuki
        1B- Votto
        2b – Cano
        3b- Donaldson
        SS- Flash Gordon
        OF- Bruce, Springer, Carbrera
        Util- Pujols, Abreu
        B- Mookie Betts, Starling Marte
        DL- Will Myers

        SP-Cole Hamels, JZimm, Yordano Ventura, Tim Hudson, Alex Cobb, Sonny Gray, Tommy Milone, Vance Worley
        RP- Hawkins, Rodney

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

          @letsgobravos: i’m guessing “yahoo league 100″ means 13-14 teamer? man, weeks that dee gordon doesn’t have steals you might have none with those guys. good news is springer actually stole today (which i’m sure you were aware of). that’s probably not a bad trade idea. i don’t know exactly what level of SP is good in that instance.

          • letsgobravos says:
            (link)

            @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now:

            Starling Marte has chipped in 18 so far, but it would be nice to have someone else with a little speed for weeks when Gordon isn’t running much. I have 76 on the season and I’m 9-4 in the SB cat.

    Would it be completely asinine of me to offer up Davis/Longoria/Brantley/Scherzer for Trout/Napoli/Zimmermann? I have Rizzo to fill in for Davis; Alvarez to fill in for Longoria (and Arenado when he comes back). And then I can pick up a hot bat for the free spot.

    I actually don’t think it would get accepted, to be honest.

    8 Team H2H – H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OB+SLUG, W, QS, SV, KS, KS/9, ERA, WHIP

    Also, Weaver was dropped. I probably won’t get him on a waiver claim, but Minor is my worst SP – drop him to attempt a claim on Weaver?

    8 Team H2H – W, QS, SV, KS, KS/9, ERA, WHIP

    somebody is trying to move archer for “player of equal value” simply due to him not wanting to have 3 TB starters (yeah they don’t win much). any of these traded str up for him any good for me
    verlander/odrisamer. other pitchers are better than archer for sure (arrieta/ryu/fister/beckett/zimmerman/bumgarner/lester)

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d risk Verlander

    league with only 4 pickups per week. 16 team H2H. i know i’m grabbing odrisamer dropping a pitcher. (he’s add number 1). and dropping rutledge grabbing ozuna (add 2). QS start league with saves/holds. do i (pick 1)
    1.a. go with 7 SP, 2 holds guys, 1 closer (perkins), 1 maybe closer (putnam)
    b. 8 SP, 2 holds guys, 1 closer
    c. 8 SP, 1 holds guy, 1 closer and putnam

    2. drop any further SP, i have McCarthy/morton/miley for any of locke/workman/kendrick/tomlin/happ/volquez

      Not sure what you’re asking

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

        @Grey: 2 separate things. should i drop any of mccarthy/morton/miley for any of locke/workman/happ/tomlin/volquez/kendrick.

        2nd thing. i currently have bastardo/perkins/gregerson (holds league), and 8 SP. am i better off like i am or grab Putnam and go down to 7 SP with my same 2 other holds guys, or drop one of those holds guys for putnam and keep the 8 SP.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          1. Nope 2. Bastardo for Putnam

    Damn, completely missed the Romo news. Guess I shouldn’t have dropped Affeldt then.

    Asshole nearly cost me my lead in ERA, but thanks to my opponent’s streaming of Whitley it’s 8-3 to the good guys…

      @SteveNZ: i asked about casilla before just adding him, and then forgot in a 2nd league that i needed another closer (just got a league and in 4 days have gone from 0 closers to 2.5 with patricka/mcgee/smith, but could’ve been 3 in casilla had i remembered)

    Is giving up Pujols and Street too much to pay for Harper?

      @Ian: I would still have Kimbrel and Janssen and am leading saves.

      • Long Bawls says:
        (link)

        @Ian: Who would you have at 1B (or equivalent)? I’d want Harper, but Pujols has done more so far. Not too much, but could you ask for more in return?

        • Ian says:
          (link)

          @Long Bawls: I have Morneau at my Util so I could slide him in at 1b

        • Ian says:
          (link)

          @Long Bawls: I need some Of help and could use the sb’s plus I’m pretty behind at wins so I figure starting another pitcher instead of Street who could easily be traded makes sense.

    Traded Andrus and Iannetta for Tanaka and Montero. Also rostered are Hanley, Mookie, and Xander. So, I felt ok with the deal.
