JB and I went to spring training this past weekend in Arizona.  Had some great meals, drank some iced Cuban coffees that I tried to order as an ‘iced Puig,’ saw way too many Angels games, obviously went to a Brewers game, and enjoyed my very first six-foot, seven-inch spooning.  I needed JB’s oversized spoon after hearing about David Dahl and his rib injury.  He has a stress reaction of his sixth rib, and I have a stress reaction with many expletives.  You can’t spell David Dahl without dah.  Seriously, I tried.  Now, I can’t see his name without thinking it’s really “Dah!”  Rockies manager Bud Black said that Opening Day is out of the question.  I moved him out of my top 20 outfielders and into my top 40 outfielders.  I still would draft him, even if he’s no longer in my top 100 overall.   The Rockies said Gerardo Parra will fill-in for Dah!, and I’d draft Parra in the last rounds as a flyer just in case Dah!’s injury turns out to be worse than thought.  I just jinxed him, didn’t I?  Dah!  By the by, between Charlie Blackmon and manager, Bud Black, the Rockies have so many white guys trying to take advantage of affirmative action, they should sign C. Thomas Howell star of Soul Man.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this spring training for fantasy baseball:

David PriceRed Sox claim that Price won’t need surgery and just some rest.  Can you feel my eye roll?  When I use the word ‘claim,’ we’re in massive eye roll territory.  I moved Price down into my top 40 starters, and I’d still obviously not go anywhere near him.

Robert Gsellman – The Mets announced that Zack Wheeler is having elbow soreness, which is about as surprising as a big-boned Hawaiian girl punching you in the face if you say, “Wanna get lei’d?”  All indications are that Gsellman will be breaking camp with the Mets as their fifth starter.  Great news for Gsellman in the short term, but, of course, this means the Mets are going to overuse him and he’ll be garbage next year, and not the good garbage that you can turn into post-modern art.  I’ve updated the top 80 starters and top 100 starters, moving up Gsellman and moving down Wheeler.  This also moved guys around in my pitchers’ pairing tool. Hehe, I said tool.

Matt Harvey – Was rocked the other day in his spring debut.  I don’t put too much weight in spring performances.  You should just be looking to see if guys are healthy and winning starting jobs.  Well, Harvey is someone you should be watching for health.  He said he had soreness, but it’s nothing to worry about, which brings me to my point (finally!).  In my post about Yahoo’s rankings, I said, “I want no part of Matt Harvey in any league.  Okay, one league, the league where you have a category: Times A Pitcher Says He Is Healthy While Not Being Healthy, because you know he’s going to dominant that category.”  And that’s me quoting me!  Looks like Harvey is already in midseason form for saying he’s healthy when he’s not.

Huston Street – Has a Grade 1 lat strain, which got its name because the first Grade 1 lat strain happened during a heated game of Chutes and Lat’ers.  I always had Cam Bedrosian as my first Angels reliever to draft in my top 500 and this doesn’t change anything.  My Bedrosian ranking is pretty conservative because I don’t trust The Sciosciapath to use Bedrosian if Street returns healthy and the Angels are just not a good team.

Trevor Rosenthal – His sore right lat showed no structural damage.  Mean’s while, his fantasy value has shown great structural damage and his foundation appears built on quicksand.

Tyson Ross – Threw a 15-pitch bullpen session yesterday off a mound for the first time since his thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last October.  He’s still a good two months away from returning, assuming no setbacks, and assuming makes an ass out of u and Ming the Merciless.

Nomar Mazara – Moved him a little lower in my rankings, into the top 60 outfielders.  No, I’m not yelling fire in the theater of Razzball, but everywhere I look it appears Mazara is going to be in a platoon to at least start the year, so I moved him down to better represent his possible platoon.  I still have him ranked above most and would draft him more as a third to fourth outfielder rather than a second to third.

Corey Seager – Could be out until Friday with back soreness.  I haven’t moved him yet in my rankings, but I already have him ranked much lower than just about any other ‘pert.  I don’t hate Seager, but as I talk about on the podcast that’s coming later today that JB and I taped live in Arizona, Seager’s lack of steals really doesn’t move my needle.  By needle I mean what you think I mean.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – Scheduled to make his Cactus League debut on Saturday.  Or is that Cacturday?

Scott Kazmir – Left yesterday’s start with tightness in his hip.  A March Kazmir injury is an iceberg that Captain Obvious crashes into.  I’ve updated my top 100 starters.

Brett Lawrie – Released from the White Sox.  “That’s freakin’ crazy!” said my 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 Brett Lawrie sleeper posts.  Taking over for Lawrie is Yolmer Sanchez aka Carlos Sanchez.  Going with Chuck Sanchez, Carlo Sanchez or Charlie Sanchez are brain leaps I can hurdle, going from Carlos to Yolmer is just so unnecessarily confusing, especially for a guy that is projected for six homers, six steals and .230 while hitting ninth.  I removed Lawrie from my top 20 2nd basemen, and didn’t add in Yolmer, because the name change annoyed me.  Plus, he’s awful.

Manuel Margot – Dealing with minor swelling in his knee.  Sounds like it should be fine, and Manuel said, “A little rest is all I knee’d.”  Ouch, no one ever called Margot ‘kidder.’

Jumbo Diaz – Designated for assignment by the Reds.  Member when people thought he’d be the closer?  “Jumbo closer” turned out to be as big of an oxymoron as jumbo shrimp.

    Grey!

    Great write-up, man! I can see you’re gearing up for April 2, which is just around the corner!!!

    1. Watched THE game (LA Lakers versus the clippers) when Shaq scored 61 pts with 20+ rebounds on his 28th birthday yesterday!! Happy Birthday! What do you think the baseball equivalent of 61 pts and 20+ rebounds is in one NBA game? Double slam and legs, right? Maybe Tehol can answer that question better.

    2. These updates are cool. Everything pointing towards BedRock with Bailey lurking in the Angels BP. Though Oh in STL with Siegrist lurking is also interesting. Obviously gonna love Giles all night long too.

    Cheers,
    Ante

      @Ante GALIC: 1. How rare is it? Sounds like an easy three homer game with 10+ RBIs 2. Yup

      • Ante GALIC says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Grey!

        a. I guess it’s not so rare although the defensive triple double is much more difficult to attain than the offensive one. To which Russell Westbrook says…’Offensive? Me? No way!’

        b. Was helping out my friend from Chicago to find a ticket from N’Djamena (party forever, come and sing my song) to Amman. She’s looking for places to go close by that don’t cost an arm and a leg. Some of the places I suggested and the prices.

        1. Nossi-Be (northern Madagascar) – N’Djamena – Nossi-Be (via Paris and Reunion) for 7000$ or N’djamena – Paris (return), Paris – Milan (return) and Milan Nossi-Be (return) all connecting for 4000$ cheaper, your pick.

        2. Tenerife (to which she said what’s that) for 1276$

        3. Las Palmas for 1292$

        4. Malta for $1244

        5. Palermo for $1050

        6. Firenze for $736 (what’s not to like?)

        7. Athens for $879 (with stopovers in Addis Abeba AND Cairo plus the return requires two (!!!!!!!) days to complete)

        Finally in the end, she found the booking she made the day before with a great connection from Amman arriving the same day in N’Djamena (so she can party forever, come and sing along). Only a 1 hour stopover in Cairo (arriving 06h30) and departing Cairo for N’Djamena at 07h30. Hope she makes it because if she misses it, she’ll wait 23h for the next flight!

        Cheers,

    Rockies Pre-Dahl Injury: Dahl is competing with Parra for the starting gig.

    Rockies Post-Dahl Injury: Just kidding Parra’s totally just keeping the seat warm for Dah!

    Perhaps the only silver lining is that maybe I can redraft Dahl for less than the $10 I would have been keeping him at.

    Harvey and the Mets already in mid-season form. Collins apparently didn’t want Harvey to pitch becasue of tightness in his neck (Harvey’s neck). But Collins gave him the option to pitch or rest and Harvey said he was fine and pitched and looked bad. Pretty standard for the Mets

      @M: it’s a keeper league, so unless you had a very close decision between 2 nearly equal level players i’d not dump him, in fact i’d use this to trade for him in dynasties/keepers.

    Having Dahl as my number 3of with Buxton on my bench I’m not taking chances on any return before June if even by then. This injury is more serious than the Rockies are letting on, just try breathing let alone swinging a bat. Searched the waiver wire in my league, draft already held I see CGomez is available. Would you drop another bench bat in this case DTravis who’s day to day and pick up Gomez?

  9. MoreCowbell says:

    I was planning on keeping Dah! in my 10 team mixed H2H 5×5 league. Now I need to decide to keep 3 between Roberto Osuna, Edwin Diaz, Danny Duffy, Jose Ramirez, and Alex Bregman. Should I still keep Dah! and 2 others from that group? Can you help me Grey? I’m lost in a sea of Dahspair!!! My puns are even suffering!

    Great stuff!! So we drew chits (hehe) for my 10 man standard league and I of course got pick #10. We draft pretty traditional in my league but thinking of switching it up this year and going something like Blackmon (10) and Trea Turner (11) hoping I can get Freeman and someone like Odor on picks 3,4. What do you think? Or should I play it safe and grab the likes of Rizzo/Harper/Miggy at 10 and 11? They’ve been around in all the mocks I’ve done.

  13. Bill says:

    Oh man, this is like the full preview of daily in-season updates. Can’t wait!

    So I play in a 12-team contract league. Each player drafted is worth three contract years but you can assign a drafted player to 1-5 years per contract.

    I have been offered Adam Jones and Addison Russell in exchange for Andrew Benintendi and Stephen Piscotty. Here is my offense as of now:

    C – Gary Sanchez
    1B – Mike Napoli
    2B – Jose Altuve
    3B – Jose Ramirez
    SS – Empty
    LF – Andrew Benintendi
    CF – Empty
    RF – Nelson Cruz
    UTIL – Kendrys Morales
    BN – Stephen Piscotty
    BN – Aaron Judge

    Obviously I need SS and CF, and the possible upside is that one of the players I’d be trading is a current bench player on my team. But what about Benintendi? Is he the best player in this trade? I guess we can’t say for certain, but the upside seems enormous.

    Our player pool for the draft this year is deeper than usual, with Lindor, Bogaerts, and Villar on the board at SS and Cespedes and Bradley Jr. at CF available. I have pick 11. Stay pat and try and address these positions in the draft or entertain this trade offer? Thanks!

    • Bill says:
      (link)

      @Bill: Also, the current contracts are as follows and would transfer in the event of a trade:

      Benintendi – 4 years
      Piscotty – 3 years
      Jones – 3 years
      Russell – 3 years

    • JeF WiTh 1 F says:

      @Bill: Hold other than positions you need i like both of your guys over both of his

    Auction league $260 cap, I have the option to keep Au Shizz at $52. Several other top tier 1b will be kept Rizzo, Freeman, Myers, HanRam, so position will be thin. Should I keep him?

    Rest of my keepers are below. Have some good prices so if I average everyone out I’m ahead. Also would you extend Tim Anderson, Pinenda or Mananea? $5 more per year of extension.

    Tim Anderson 5
    Rendon 11

    In my 12-tm 5×5 keeper league, $260 in-season cap. I was offered Randal Grickuk($3) for Aaron Sanchez, ($2). My league is gaga over pitching, to the tune of an historic 59/41 hit/pitch split. My other pitching keepers are likely James Paxton ($3), Cam Bedrosian ($3), Jon Gray ($6) and Mark Melancon ($12). Should I take it?

    I’m in a 12 team Roto 5×5 weekly lineups league that uses OBP instead of AVG. It’s a keeper league where each team keeps 7 players. 2 arms, 2 bats, and 3 of our choosing. C,1B,2B,SS,3B,MI,CI,OF,OF,OF,OF,OF,UTL. We have 9 any P spots and 7 bench spots. I have the 1st pick in the draft. The guy with the 3rd pick just offered me Verlander to exchange picks. So I’d be picking 3rd but I’d get Verlander. Is this a no-brainer? I feel that I should jump on this since I need pitching, but I wanted to hear other opinions. Below, see my current keepers and the best available players in the draft pool.

    HOU J. ALTUVE
    PIT S. MARTE
    BAL C. DAVIS
    SEA K. SEAGER

    CLE C. CARRASCO
    LAD K. JANSEN
    HOU MCCULLERS

        • LenFuego says:
          (link)

          @DMT: This is hard to answer without more info – e.g., what is the lineup configuration, how much total budget in the auction, which Travis and which MIller are you talking about, do you have to keep 10 or can you keep less?

          My inclination would be to keep Travis (if Devon) and Miller (if Andrew or Brad, but not Shelby) assuming a typical starting roster arrangement and a $260 budget because I think Braun and Chapman will probably go for around their current values in the auction anyway, but with 120 total keepers out of the available auction pool players may go for much higher prices. You are in a better position to judge that based on typical bidding patterns of your league.

    I had my first RCL draft last night. It went exactly according to your rankings through 9 picks. I was hoping it would go that way through 250 or so. Much quicker and more predictable draft that way.

    Had a thought this morning- and like most of my ideas it’s abstract and I don’t have the skill set to do anything with it- it would be neat to see at the end of the season how much of a team’s value came from the draft and how much of it came from in season moves.
    Obviously we couldn’t suss out the value of, say, getting Story in the last round last year and flipping him for someone else’s slumping third rounder. But it would be interesting to see where the value on good teams came from at the end of the year.

    Grey, Great work as always.

    Word on the street is Dahl had a tough time staying healthy in the minors as well. Should I put him in the “trust tree” as a potential keeper. This injury could drive down his auction price. In a 12 team keeper (5 years max) mixed league, how much would he be worth to ya?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      ~$7

  29. Marti says:

    Gut feeling question? Where do you think Gerrit Cole will be ranked for pitchers in 2018.

    In my N/L only roto auction league $260 budget, I can keep cole for $24. We have unlimited keepers so there is some inflation. My other pitcher keepers are nola for $11 and velazquez for $6. Most of my keepers are bats though. So do I keep cole for $24 and follow up question, would you keep iglesias the best relief pitcher for the reds for $11. Its driving me nuts they won’t announce a closer.

    Thanks again for the best baseball website. I visit daily.

    I want no part of Harvey after watching those couple of innings. He struck out Fowler and Diaz, but the fastball didn’t look good and it was sitting low 90’s. He looks like he’s lost his confidence.

    I hate Gerardo Parra, I wish he would just go away. He’s like the Mike Leake of hitters. Blocking rookie nookie I’d much rather watch and own.

    2 quick questions:

    1. OBP roto kepeer league. 64 guys were kept, Bregman was not one of them. Is he worthy of first round consideration?

    2. In an email draft (standard roto) I have Dahl, but obviously need to find a fill-in and I have enormous power, but do have some SB needs. At pick 174, Inciarte seems like the obvious pick over Martin or Broxton, right?

    Hey Grey! What’s your strategy/thinking for a 6×6 Head-2-Head Keeper league….specifically :

    1) are Hitter or Pitchers more valuable in your opinion (if starting 10 active Hitters & 10 Active Pitcher positions (7 SP / 3 RP) in a given weekly matchup?

    2) if 30 of Top 50 guys already being kept, and drafting 11th overall, who’d you go with at 11??
    (next best available SP would be Lester, Arrieta, Price, Carrasco, DeGrom – and – best available hitters would be Stanton, Boegarts, Odor, Cano)

    Thx brotha

          @Jose: this really looks like you spent rounds early (like at least 3) on many SP (and even more likely you have 2 top 10 RP, and spent for them) at expense of hitters, prado doesn’t need to be any bit owned in a 10 team league, jose ram at 3B isn’t great (if you wanted a steals guy you could have waited and grabbed like dyson or somesuch and stuck him at util over aledmys), very little power in OF there (or really at all), team will be good in AVG if that makes you happy though.

    My work league (roto redraft traditional stats) is going weekly now.

    No IP minimum (but a max of 2000). 9 pitching spots but only 2 of them are SP. What do you think of trying the RP-centric strategy of punting Wins (and sort of Ks) and going after WHIP, ERA, and Saves by drafting 2 inning eater starters (eg Hamels/Lackey) and going HAM on elite K-rate closers and MRPs like Andrew Miller, Capps, etc.)?

    I’ve never tried it before, but I’m curious. Feels very risky.

  42. Matt says:

    Thanks for all the work you do Grey. Come to Razzball every morning looking forward to your writing and jokes.

    10 Team ESPN Roto Standard. Used your pitcher pairing tool for the first time this year correctly I think?

    Carrasco/Duffy/McCullers/Velasquez/Paxton/Montgomery
    Melancon/Miller/Bentances
    Goldy/Correa/Springer/Segura/Hanley/C.Santana/Rendon/Pujols/Kepler/Buxton etc

    Every year my WHIP explodes because I always thought a higher ranked pitcher was better than a lower one. Pure stupidity. Hope this fixes it. Seems like all the ESPN leagues LOVE RP and take them way early. Like Rd 5 Love. I try to stabilize by getting a decent one and making sure I still get my bats.

    Also I see some guys have rotations like Bum/Kluber/Lester/Cueto/Jansen/Britton/Familia/Oh
    and then not take a hitter until Rd 7. Do you think this is viable? Kind of got into it with a guy that did this because he was bragging about his staff and he still will have more HR then anyone. (Trumbo/Turner/Miller/Duvall/Bruce/Granderson/Joseph)

    Pitchers:

      I’d want Bogaerts and Piscotty sides

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I lurve Piscotty. He’s so not getting any love. I’m calling 25/.290/10 and whatever counting stats in the middle of that lineup. 4th round value in the 10th.

    Harper -1 , Odor – 2nd : nice . Looks like my plan as well. But, I see no love for Springer .

      @JoeG414: my bad . You got him. Real nice.

    For keeper purposes, pick 2 of 3: Urias, McCullers, Gausman. Thanks, Grey! All hail the ‘stache!

    Awesome, I crushed my first rcl draft a couple weeks ago while still purposefully going top closer heavy (like real heavy) and someone just traded me Seager for Britton

      @nick the dick: No wonder you had two top 10 teams. Ha.

      Hey did you listen to that WarPorn album I posted the other week? That Everlast and Sick Jacken one. I was kind of slow listening to it, but I really dig it now. The tracks with B-Real, Big Daddy Kane, and Termanology are all dope.

      Nice!

      • nick the dick says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I’m not a big team poster, but let’s just say when you start out Rizzo, Springer, Story, Cano and then still get Rendon later, get Yu for an ace, Chapman, Britton, Giles, Davis for closers…eh, you get the picture

    As an one of 3 expansion teams in a now 14 team 5X5 each of the expansion teams can pick from the leftover keepers to add 2 more players to their roster. I have S Marte (LF, CF) as a 10th round pick (which you suggested yesterday). I made a list of what I thought were possibilities with the round in the draft I would lose. Each year the player moves up 2 rounds in “cost” if you keep him. I need to turn in a list of 6 in order of preference …any suggestions for me Mr Grey or any Razzballers wanting to weigh in?
    Bats choices would be: CF JBJ (26); LF, RF Mazara (18); LF, RF Tomas (26); CF Buxton(13);
    LF K Davis (12); Ozuna (18); LF Benintendi (26): Duvall (26); 2B Schoop (20) ; 2B Travis (26); 3B Rendon (15); 3B Franco (25)

    SP choices: Darvish (9) Cole (19); Eickhoff (24); VV (26) Snell (26); Urias (26), Gray (26): McCullers (11); Ross (21)

    RP choice (Diaz (26)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      JBJ, Benintendi, Maikel, Darvish, Cole, Rendon

      • henncoop says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thank You …had 5 figured out but unsure of the order I should use …as always you are The MAN. My guess is Ralph would switch the top 2 guys .. I guess JBJ is a proven commodity at this point & gets the nod.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Yeah, last one is a coin flip

  59. henncoop says:

    One more quick question …in a deep draft of 50 rounds who would you pick between Brinson & Meadows …more likely to play & have an impact this year??
    Thanks so much

    • Grey

      Meadows

    normally i don’t post classifieds in razzball comment sections as i’d rather not have my leaguemates having a guaranteed method of best info and possibly getting scooped to my own advice questions, but it’s getting late in the game and i need one more owner for:

    brand new dynasty 16 team roto in yahoo (free):
    there will be 7 man minor league protected list (and can be anybody, even those not in yahoo as long as under 130 at bats/50 innings, players must be signed by some MLB team prior to drafting them, so no otani’s till next year’s draft), the minor league list will be drafted first as soon as league fills up, 1 spot left. the regular active player draft will be march 31st at 8 PM eastern online.

    rosters: 1 each of all infield spots, 1 exact OF each (LF/CF/RF), 2 extra OF of any type, 1 each of CI/MI, 2 utils, 5 SP, 5 RP, 1 P, 3 BN, 5 DL, 2 NA. the minor players can be called up/sent down till any time till they hit their maximums.

    scoring (roto): runs, hits, HR’s, RBI, steals, total bases, OBP, slugging, OPS, steals %, wins, saves, holds, K’s, ERA, WHIP, K to BB, K per 9, QS, net saves. 1750 max innings per year. 162 games for hitting spots. 1750 max innings per year. drop email here i’ll get invite.

    Keeper league trade, we keep 8 players with no cost. 12 team 5×5 roto. Which side do you prefer and is the deal close? McCutchen/G Cole for Abreu/Odor. I already have Rizzo and Au shizz at 1B and one of my 2 Util slots. How do you feel about potentially piling up on 3 1B. Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Odor, not close

    I’m in Florida for some games. Cards v Marlins today. Sadly no Giancarlo or Yelich. Waino didn’t look awful but still not the old Waino. But the guy that looked good for Cards was Jake Flahrety. Ralph, he may still turn into something.

      @Copperhead Road: flaherty guards the gate (hehe) and has like 6 boring as shit pitches but can in fact place them quite well. he’s been well known about for somewhere in the 3 year range or so.

    Grey,

    I am in a keeper league getting ready to freeze my top 6 batters before we draft.

    Currently looking to keep the top 6 in my list (with Amed as a future hopeful breakout SS for the Mets) Phillips and Panik are the only two that I question whether I should keep in lieu of maybe Kinsler or Piscotty…Thoughts?

    Amed Rosario
    Ian Kinsler
    Stephen Piscotty
    Charlie Blackmon
    A.J. Pollock
    Jake Lamb

    =================
    Ketel Marte
    Joe Panik
    Brandon Phillips
    Yunel Escobar
    Billy Burns
    Brett Gardner

      Grey says:

      I’d go with the six you have up top

  66. nick the dick says:

    Hahaha so the guy posted he wanted a closer for Seager. I offer him Britton, he accepts. An hour later, the league vetoes the trade. How fucking corny is that, especially before the season even starts? The ol’ ‘I just don’t like it’ veto. Unbelieveable.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Vetoed the trade before the season starts? Wow

      • nick the dick says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Incredible, an hour after the trade was accepted. I’m against vetoes unless some obvious collusion or something extreme, it’s your team, a free league, do what you want with it. Thing is, it’s not even like it’s a lopsided trade! How on earth do you get 4 knuckleheads in the same league to do that….here’s the cherry on top. I sent out an email to the league basically saying what i’m saying here and the response I got was another guy offering me Kenley Jansen and Neil Walker for my Britton! What the hell do I do with that now? I feel like i’m taking crazy pills…

    $260 auction, roto, 14 team 6×6 ops…

    Which keeper?
    $39 Donaldson
    or
    $6 Trumbo

    Thinking donalds is solid but may save more $ on trumbo and its ops league

    • rick says:
      (link)

      @rick: help pleeeease :)

      • apox says:
        (link)

        @rick: Donaldson probably goes for slightly less than 39$ in auction. Trumbo probably goes for more than 6$. I like Donaldson more, but it seems to me that Trumbo gives you better value.
