Whoever foresaw me touting Logan Forsythe as a lead Buy is either a liar or a psychic. In some circles those two are the same thing. Grandstanding like Al Pacino, “Not this circle…Hoo-ah!” Though on a completely serious tip, why are psychic stores ever empty of customers? If you know no one is coming into your store, why not close the store until you need to open it? David Blaine, your magic is real and I believe in you! But is Logan’s magic real? I hope so because I’m in a fantasy baseball strait jacket and Logan told me in my dreams that he’d help me get out of this milk can that I’m typing from. Bee tee dubya, I’m typing this from behind my back while in a strait jacket. Score one for Trey–Yrey–Where the hell is the G? In 46 games in Triple-A in 2011, Logan went 8/8 with a .445 OBP. Why I oughta kiss you! Throughout the minors, he showed similar skills. In the majors, his walking hasn’t completely translated, but he’s only 25 years old and he could have a few years of a decent average with low teen homer and mid-to-high teen speed. As of right now, he’s hitting .400 with 2 homers in the last week (at Petco, so that shouldn’t worry you). This is meant to entice you in deeper keeper leagues and shallower mixed leagues for the short term. How’d I do? Wait, don’t tell me? Let me tuess–yuess–Where’s that G!? Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Cameron Maybin – It’s a monkey-fightin’ Padres day up in here, up in here. The Padre hitters must be staying at the Renaissance.

Dewayne Wise – Why do I keep talking about him? Why not grab him and find out? Why grab him if you don’t need steals? Easy with the Why’s, guy.

Chris Denorfia – Because of all of these Padre hitters in this Buy, I’m laughing like a madman and waving my hands like Henry Hill when Pesci’s going all “I’m funny how?” Denorfia needs to be platooned in and out of your lineup, but he can go to 11 on lefties.

Brandon Moss – I don’t wanna be the fly in your ointment, but Moss is probably better than that guy you have at corner infidel. You know, Moss with 18 homers in just over 200 ABs. This rolling Moss collects no rocks!

John Mayberry Jr. – Here’s something interesting, by which I mean dry and pedantic, Mayberry is owned in more than twice as many leagues as Moss because (I’m assuming) he’s a starter, but Moss has been more valuable.

Anthony Gose – You need a shot of SAGNOF right into your vein? You Bubbles’ing for steals? Then grab Gose, yo.

Brandon Belt – He’s probably been the hottest hitter out of all of these hitters, but I ask you, “You’re hot now, Belt, but how many times can you burn me?” FWIWuertz, he’s hitting near .300 in the 2nd half with very little power.

Luke Gregerson – If you want me to stop touting the Padres closer, you’ll tell your friends to pick him up so he moves above 50% owned in ESPN. It’s the only way we can survive!

Jonathan Broxton – Dusty said Broxton is unequivocally going to maybe get saves. To the point, his exact words were, “Sometimes me and him (pointing at his toothpick), we get ourselves in tight places, but pitchers’ arms are nothing to fool around with. I will do whatever I can to ease the burden on Aroldis’s arm. If that means him throwing 80 miles per hour, then I’ll have him do that while throwing batting practice for 5 hours before games.”

Ryan Cook – There’s been no official change to the closer situation in Oakland, but Balfour is back to his aptronym (Word of the Day!) ways, and the A’s are competing for a Wild Card (Wait, what? Why not just say the O’s are in first in the AL East? Or that the Nats have the best record in baseball?), so Cook may get saves if he’s lights out and Balfour is, uh, lights on.

Donovan Solano – With the lost of Redhead Kingpin and The Infante, Solano’s been playing every day and doing a fine job of it for real baseball. In fantasy, I’d like to see more steals. As you can see from our 20-day Player Rater, he’s been about as valuable as Zobrist and Kendrick.

Everth Cabrera – Eff me in the eff hole, just pick up the whole Padres lineup.

Jed Lowrie – Due to his injury, he may not play every day, so in the short term he may have some–Wait, the short term? There’s only a couple of weeks left. There is no long term here. Jed better find some Texas tea real quick or I can’t see owning him.

Josh Donaldson – We’ve got four Padre hitters, a couple of A’s, an Astro, a Marlin, and a Philly…And the Philly’s the worst one. It’s opposite day here at Razzball. “My name is Grey. I’m unemployed and I live with my parents.”

Erasmo Ramirez – He’s the kind of guy that has solid control, but not plus-K stuff. I’m surprised he’s not a Twins pitcher. Maybe in the offseason he can go to “Be A Twinkie” fantasy camp hosted by Brad Radke.

Jarrod Parker – Bee tee dubya, I’m just going by the Stream-o-Nator here. At this point in the season, you shouldn’t be looking further than a start or two into the future.

Andrew Cashner – Finally, a Padres pitcher…We’re making sense again! Whew, for a while there I thought I was running some kind of Anarchist Organization. (I contemplated not capping Anarchist Organization, but, well… Why chance it? These are the last people you want to piss off. I could see it now, Grey Albright was murdered today because he didn’t cap Anarchist. Suspects include Anarchists and Grammar Nazis.)

SELL

Jaime Garcia – He hasn’t looked consistent enough to pitch him this year. That’s a sknaht, tub on sknaht… Damn, opposite day, you’re messing with my head!

Any closer – I’m not saying you should definitely drop your closers at this point, but if you’re unable to gain a saves point and no one can catch you. There’s probably better resources out there for that spot on your roster. I’m sure you can find a Padres hitters. You feel me? Well, may as well rub my back while you’re feeling me.

Asdrubal Cabrera – I got no quarrel with Asdrubal, but his wrist is so sore the only thing it can hold is him out of the lineup. Turn of a phrase point!

Adam Dunn – You got a whole lot more from Dunn than you thought you were gonna. You guys had a good run, which is ironic because neither of you can probably jog around the block, but Dunn’s got a vague injury that they’re claiming is oblique. You know how you open the refrigerator and there’s nothing there so you close it and open it again and again and again and then you find some leftovers that end up being “still good?” Well, pretend the waiver wire is the refrigerator and find yourself some leftovers.

    And by Drew Solano, you mean Donovan, right? Biggest schmohawk if I ever saw one. Take it from someone who saw Ozzie manage Willie Harris to World Series 2B fame.

    Should I drop Lowrie and Machado (have to drop both b/c Lowrie’s still in the DL spot) to pick up Forsythe before someone else grabs him, and then decide on Sunday about starting him or Lind in the IF spot next week?

    BTW, good thing you didn’t put Nick up at the Standard, unless of course he’s into that sort of thing: http://laist.com/2012/09/11/woman_pisses_on_rug_in_ad_for_stand.php

      Yeah, I’d go to Logan now… I’m sure people probably did that at Nick’s hotel, only it wasn’t as publicized…

    1. I’m a bit thick this afternoon, so bear with me. I don’t understand what you mean under “Any Closer” when you say “if you’re unable to gain a saves point and no one can catch you.” Do you mean that I should drop a closer if no one can catch me because my other closers are so strong? Or do you mean that if I don’t have a chance in the saves category against a strong opponent, I’d be better off allocating resources elsewhere.

    2. Scutaro or Forsythe.

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I mean you’d be better off allocating resources elsewhere if you’re uncatchable in saves… If you’re up by say ten saves at this point, you’re not getting caught… Logan…

    • royce! says:
      (link)

      @Deadwoods, I think Grey is talking about roto, not h2h. In h2h, you should only drop closers if you have so many good ones that no potential opponent could beat you.

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        Yes, in roto…

          @Grey, Did you know you picked up 25 saves in the first 12 days of September in the RCL?

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            @VinWins, Yeah, I just dropped a closer too because I have way too many saves…

    • Adam says:
      (link)

      @Deadwoods,

      Pretty sure he was talking more about roto than H2H.

      If the guy in front of you in the standings is ahead by 20 saves, and the guy behind you is down by 20 saves, you probably can cut some closers if you’re really in need of roster spots for something else. You probably won’t gain or lose even 1 pt thru saves no matter what.

      • Deadwoods says:

        @Adam, Thanks, all.

    Damnit now I’m going to have to watch goodfellas this weekend. For the rest of the day I’m going to be sitting at work mumbling this to my self “I’m funny how, I mean funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh” over and over again. i would work on my fantasy team but even Logan “run over william” Forsythe can’t help me now. I watch the Dodger games and start grinding my teeth when Gonzo comes up to bat and does nothing like he has done all year on my fantasy team. He has disappointed me fantasy wise and in real life, thats like hooking up with a chick and finding out they have a dick and better fantasy line-up than you. He’s been about as yawnstipating as pride and prejudice on valium and somas. At least if I would of owned TEX I could of at least had the injury excuse to go with his poor play or found some dumb yankee love schlub to trade him to. But no, I get the Am-Mex who can’t hit, that gets a second chance in the land of Mexicans and he still can’t hit. Jamie Jarrin has got to going ay ya ya!

                    @Grey, no, i have to go wednesday for work, so i’ll get a little taste, then probably the last weekend for earth wind and fire.

                    I have to work security at the carnival at my daughters school next weekend.so I won’t go next weekend, which pisses me off cause i wanted to see war. got my aviators ready to go for security detail.

                      @Grey,Im a stand-by carnie…not really.

                      I belong to a local chamber and we have booths for the day for free. I do insurance, family biz, and its cheap and easy marketing. Not really my thing, but it gets me in the fair for free and I’m going to bring one of my CSR’s to help so I can go dick around for a while. The funny thing is that we need more biz in the area. Alot of our clients are in the LA area, for example, the other day I had to go inspect a house up by the Hollywood Resorvoir.

                      I hear ya… The fair must have a lot more people from outlying areas that you wouldn’t usually reach, right? Probably a really good place to market…

                    • Jack Full of Hate says:
                      (link)

                      @Grey, that and each local city gets their day at the fair with reduced admission.

                      I think its funny you are from New York/New Jersey. We have a lot of writers/producers customers from there that come out to California . My dad has had a referal source for like 30 years who works with a lot of the studios finding the transplants housing when they come out. when I first saw where you came from and what you really do i wondered if i had already met the great grey a long time ago and never knew it. But probably not. Now we have had Oscar winning producers and writers on hit shows. Its kinda weird.

                      That is weird… Did your dad or you deal with Oakwood Housing? Put people up there?

                    • Jack Full of Hate says:
                      (link)

                      @Grey, doesn’t ring a bell, but I will ask him. Alot of them were houses. Were you ever sought after pre-razzball?

                      I feel like a dork because one of his clients that I only met once, wrote one of my favorite episodes of Family Guy and I want him to autograph a DVD for me. I’m so lame and kinda fan boyish

                      Ha… Nah, Oakwood Housing is where a lot of actors and writers stay when they come in for pilot season… It’s temp, business housing… But it sounds like you were dealing with bigger names that wanted houses to stay in…

                    • Jack Full of Hate says:
                      (link)

                      @Grey, not sure who they were, but some ended up doin very well out here. all I know is we made alot of money by just being good at what we do. And not being schmucks!

                      Sometimes we would get referals from those people to the little guys who lived in some odd spots throughout hollywood, los feliz and silver lake.

                      I remember one who had just moved out and had an old ass tercel and moved into a $500,000 house on the Westside.

    • Steve says:

      @Jay, The SON tends to over-rate guys who have done well but haven’t pitched very much, so his ranking is perhaps slightly deceiving.

      Kluber is quite high today for the same reason – though I’m starting him (I picked him up before it turned out he’d be going against Verlander… )

      He’s against the Phillies too, who are rolling right now.

    I’ve been riding Parker like Black Beauty all season. other then a few week dry spell, the youngster has come through for me. I’m still trying to figure out why Arizona traded him for Cahill. Just like I still don’t get why they traded sexy Scherzer. mind bottling

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @LT, Yeah, for serious… Parker’s gonna have a good career… Odd, but the A’s traded away Gio too so there’s that….

    I’ve got McCann and Rosario as my catchers in a 10 team league. It’s a H2H league and we’re in the first week of the playoffs; me and my opponent are neck and neck in wins and Ks. Safe to drop McCann to stream a pitcher tomorrow? Just seems strange dropping him but I don’t have many other options except Reynolds, Crisp and maybe Niese.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I’d drop McCann…

      • Carnac says:
        (link)

        @Grey, Assuming that’s a 2 catcher league… I don’t know of any fantasy system that prevents one from doing it, but I don’t think it’s ethical to punt a position to add a pitcher (or whatever).

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          @Carnac, I don’t think it’s a 2 catcher league…

          • Joe says:
            (link)

            @Grey, @Carnac

            Yeah, sorry, after I posted I realized I should have pointed out it is not a two catcher league. My opponent is streaming pitchers, something I normally avoid if possible, so I just need to keep up.

        • VinWins

          VinWins says:
          (link)

          @Carnac, Wow, that seems harsh. I’ve often dropped my catcher on short schedule days to carry another position. Every 2-catcher league I’ve played in has had several teams carrying only 1 catcher.

  14. Carnac says:

    The Tigers have placed Ryan Raburn on on the 15-day DL. Wait, what? Does Dave Dombrowski own Raburn on his fantasy team and, if so, how terrible must Dombrowski’s fantasy team be?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      That’s hilarious… Maybe it’s a contract thing… Odd move… Unless you’re right about his fantasy team… Maybe he’s playing Fantasy Razzball… Or maybe he’s the best real life GM and worst fantasy one…

              I’ve always liked Davey from his Mets days, but he’s crackers sometimes too… He’s no Ozzie though…

                (link)

                @Grey, yeah i know he won a world series in the 80’s, but i think hes lost a little brain since then.. ozzie for sure would go in the top ten!

                    @Grey, stress of being a manager. We do give them a hard time but i bet we would have some “oops” moments if we tried to manage a major league club.. although ozzie just brings that shizz on himself! I dont even consider him a manager anymore..

                    • Grey

                      (link)

                      I think the bigger issue is probably the pressure to play certain guys because of contracts…

                    • Prezii says:
                      (link)

                      @Grey, man you cant listen to the fans! I know they are the ones who pay the moola, but damn they dont manage the team. I just feel once you start payin attention to criticism from fans,you lose it. Example: ozzie. And davey doesnt give a F*CKK about the fans, if he did strasburg would be out there with his arm hangin off. A tale of two tapes, i guess.

    My OF, the pride of my 14-teamer in which I was in first for all but one week, has batted 8 for 80 with 5 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, and 2 SB. The rest of my team, save Pedroia, has been equally shizzy.

    But it’s still early. I’m holding on by a thread, thanks to decent pitching (my only 2 saves are from Wilton!) and terrible competition. There’s a good chance that this round will come down to Straily’s start against BAL.

    Use my last pick up on Straily at home against Baltimore tomorrow? Barely leading K’s, wins, and QS.

    Or, scoop Maybin, Seager, or Forsythe for the next two day and drop Ike? Barely leading homers, tied in RBI, and AVG and OPS both within .015 of each other.

    I need to win 5 of these 7 categories to hold him off, so this is a pretty intense situation.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Does he have more starts? Do you? Will Maybin, who’d I choose, start? Who’s benched? Hard to tell with info provided, but I’ll say go with Straily…

      • Poo Holes says:
        (link)

        @Grey, Sorry I didn’t answer any of your questions sooner. He has Kershaw, Minor, and Morrow and I just have Latos. Edwin’s stinker didn’t do much for me so I’m hoping for big things from Parker tonight. If I picked up Maybin, he would start. I’d drop Ike and bench Nelson Cruz. After that homer by Weeks, it’s now 7-6-1 him. I honestly think it’s all luck at this point. I’ll likely go with Straily to combat his pitchers and just hope my offense shows up to play. Too many factors to consider.

        • Grey

    Since i’m running out of room up top, I will continue down here because the Voice is too important to stop this breakdown.

    I never like Tony Luca from last year, I thought he was a souless pussy up there. I think the Scot could actually do well if he gets the right type of songs to sing. Besides anyone who commits to that ridiculous haircut has got some balls. Someone needs to tell him the casting is over for the Bay City Rollers movie… I think i liked the Yoddler because she sang classic country, which i grew up with, so until i hear something else, I’m tainted. The mother and daughter team was a little weird cause I keep thinking menage a jack, if you know what I mean.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I didn’t like Lucca, or anyone other than that older black man that Xtina inexplicably got rid of… I ended up liking Lucca because Xtina called him out on the show for having Adam help him with his Twitter connections… My vote for Lucca was more a vote against Xtina… I don’t think the mother/daughter team has a prayer to go far in the show… They might last past one battle round, that’s about it… I thought Brain Keith was the best from the first day, and I thought Danny Rosa still wasn’t good, but it was set up for him to come back and they had to let him on the show…

    Sooo.. IF (cuz i dont like to count my chickens before they hatch) barring a miracle, i advance…

    Do like any of these guys wearing pants?

    Miguel Gonzalez @ SEA, Erasmo Ramirez VS BAL, Corriea @ ChC.

    I have 1 add left so i want to make sum kind of move. Or do you think its wiser to find a batty call? P.S. i dont own any chickens.

      HA! I like that… Erasmo… Cause SON says so, but I don’t love it if you don’t need the start…

        @Grey, SON screwed me with fiers so were not on speaking terms.. although you did have a good point, in hes just wearing down. Ill give SON a call and try to work things out..

    Is Gose getting everyday PT? He’s got 5 steals in a week, so I’m kinda digging him to help carry me to the promised land. Drop Cruz for him? I need SBs.

    After starting Cashner last night, my season is on the line… i need some bigtime advice on a question that you would think should almost NEVER be asked…

    Please help me pick one of the remaining FA starting pitchers to use for tomorrow in a last ditch effort, for a DEEP H2H points league.

    The list is a real bunch of winners:

    Randy Wolf @ Oak (Straily)
    Will Smith v LAA (Haren)
    Jordan Lyles @ Phi (Halladay)
    Blake Beavan @ Tex (Harrison)
    Alex White @ SD (Werner)
    Stephen Fife v StL (Wainwright)

    HELP PLEASE!!!

    Scoring is as follows: IP(15pts), H(-5pts), ER(-10pts), BB(-2pts), K(3pts), Win (40pts), QS(5pts), L(-15pts)

    Thanks!

    • Prezii says:

    Wow Rollins has been HUGE this week. 1st inning… Single, stole 2nd, stole 3rd.. hes been out of his 50 year old mind lately.. good thing steve and i didnt drop him when someone said to! *wink wink*

    As for “someone” being right… Trumbo is in a straight platoon with wells… Is he droppable now? For sayyy, Crisp?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I’d go with Crisp if you need steals…

      • Prezii says:
        (link)

        @Grey, damn i hate to drop that guy.. so stupid! Oh well, life goes on..

        Would you roll with Logan Fore-Skin or Cameron Maybe over crisp? Who woulda thunk back in june that i’d be droppin trumbo for a padre or an A…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, I know… Weird time… I’d go with Maybin…

  55. Steve says:

    Strategy time. Tied 6-6. 5 more Ks will put me in the lead. I have Straily and Werner tomorrow and one add left. He has no one and no adds. I have a hurt Mauer and a Wise with PT issues. I’m 2 behind in runs.
    What to do with the last add? Another starter to guarantee Ks or a hitter to fill my gaps? If a hitter, catcher or OF?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      How many Ks do you have? Will two SPs catch him?

  56. Steve says:
    (link)

    He has 68, I have 65.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      So barring something insane, you should have Ks locked up… What outfielder can you add?

  57. Steve says:
    (link)

    Available guys include Maybin, Fowler, Saunders, Revere, Maxwell, McLouth, Colvin.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      So top of the order play every day guys are McLouth and Revere… I’d go McLouth… Especially since the O’s have to win and have to play McLouth and he homered today…

  58. Steve says:
    (link)

    He could have Cishek and Boots pad his Ks a little today. I have Lopez and Ziegler and Betancourt…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Guess we can check back on it, but 5 Ks, if it stays at that should be doable with 2 SPs…

    • Prezii says:
      (link)

      @Steve, i agree, straily and werner should easily surpass 5 K’s.

  59. Steve says:
    (link)

    Another big day for Saunders…

  60. Steve says:
    (link)

    Need 7 Ks now.

  61. Anthony says:
    (link)

    @Grey: how often is the player rater updated? Would using the player rater for next seasons draft be a good idea?

  62. Steve says:

    How the fuck did Greinke only strike out 2?

  63. Steve says:
    (link)

    Ziegler doing some work here!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Still at 7?

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        @Grey, He leads Ks 70-67. And runs 22-20. As well as being short-handed my hitting has been pretty limp. No one seems to be able to come round to score.

        • Steve says:
          (link)

          @Steve, I guess there’s a chance Wise plays tomorrow…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          So now it’s down to 3? You definitely don’t need another SP then… I’d go with McLouth…

          • Steve says:
            (link)

            @Grey, Yeah. I do have Straily going though. Not sure I can take the anguish ;-)

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Yeah, hopefully he looks every bit the prospect he showed in the minors this year…

          • Steve says:
            (link)

            @Grey, Hopefully Boggs doesn’t come in and strike out the side…

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Is he coming in vs. the Dodgers?

              • Steve says:
                (link)

                @Grey, Yeah. Realize now I made a bit of a blunder picking up Ziegler for Holds. He’s playing against my other Holds guy…

                Pity I dropped Affeldt. Had to, though. Needed a starter.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Looks like Boggs hasn’t struck out a hitter in over a week…

              • Steve says:
                (link)

                @Grey, Until now!

  64. Steve says:
    (link)

    Rasmus and Gose are also available. Also, Dom Brown, Denorfia and Solano. Still go with McLouth?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d say Rasmus, but I feel mentally committed to McLouth already for you… You know?

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        @Grey, Yeah. And Rasmus faces Lester so that doesn’t help. I guess I’m just scared that if McLouth has a huge day it’s bad news for Straily…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, I hear ya, but if McLouth can just get 2 runs and two hits, it’s not bad for Straily (if that’s all he gives up) or McLouth… Hopefully you can win it without McLouth… This is vs. the #2 seed? #1?

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        @Grey, I’m falling back into your arms, Grey. I hope you’re back from the bar in time to catch me ;-)

    • Steve says:

      @Steve, Screw the pinch runner.

      Oh, and doesn’t sound as though Mauer will be back tomorrow. Bastard.

      (link)

      Cobb

  68. Steve says:
    (link)

    Riddle me this, Batman…

    I have picked up McLouth and have him in my lineup. In the unlikely event that I wake up in time and see that Wise is starting, do you prefer him over the Nate-ster?

    Fine for steals, need runs…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d go with whoever is higher up in the order, if they’re the same, I’d go Wise…

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        @Grey, Yeah, woke up early, saw Wise was leading off so switched him in there. Looking ok so far, that Mauer home run a big help. In striking distance of AVG now too, but need some runs!

        Just need good Ks and no pitching blowouts…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, saw the Mauer homer and thought of you and figured you got Wise in there… Hopefully he does something…

          • Steve says:
            (link)

            @Grey, I could still use McLouth instead of LaRoche at Util. I’m up 8-6 in HRs, probably not going to overtake him in RBIs…

            • Steve says:
              (link)

              @Steve, 8-7 in homers now. Curse you, Adam Dunn.

        @Grey, It’s 6-6. He’s ahead by 1 Hr (fucking Wieters) and I’m ahead by 2 Ks, and .09 in ERA.

        If I don’t get a dinger from CarGo or LaRoche, or any of my remaining pitchers (Valverde, Ziegler, Lopez) get blown up, I’m history.

        Unbelievable.

    Grey,

    I’ve had the luxury of a bye week in a 12-team OBP and have been holding on to Dunn.

    Semis start tomorrow and he’s 4 for 7 with a HR. Still think he’s a drop? I picked up Daniel Murphy (1B eligibility) for possible rest dates for Dunn, but I think he’s a must start, no?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Nah, I wouldn’t drop him now… I’d start Dunn…

        @Steve, My condolences.

        I lost to a team that 1. Started Hart all week, 2. Started Masterson and Chacin, and 3. Spent $25 FAAB to pick up Samardzija this week. His offense killed me by batting .245 with a .305 OBP.

        • Steve says:

          @royce!, All I needed was a solid hitting day and some Ks and no disasters from my pitchers.

          Hitting was good – .379 AVG, .394 OBP with a couple of dingers.

          Pitching – got the Ks I needed, but an ERA of 9 and a WHIP of 2.09. Thanks a bunch, Werner, Straily and Valverde.

          Of course his offense explodes and he hits 4 home runs with a .375 AVG and .447 OBP.

            @Steve, Ugh, that must have been hard to watch. My opponent’s team was so bad that I actually had it tied up at 7-7, but that was before Straily’s start.

            It’s probably karmic retribution for having convinced a guy to trade me Prince for Berkman and Haren in the first couple of weeks of the season…

      Were you a top seed?

      • royce! says:
        (link)

        @Grey, Yep. I was in first for all but one week. My offense was an unstoppable force…the operative word being “was.” I could have killed in fantasy razzball this week. But I’m sure they’ll be great again next week in the “consolation” round, which will be mighty consoling!

          So frustrating…

          • royce! says:
            (link)

            @Grey, I’m like the 2001 Mariners…

            Whatever, enough sulking. I don’t think I’ve lost a roto league since 2009 (was that the first year of RCLs?) thanks in large part to razzball. So the Mariners and I don’t actually have that much in common…

            • Steve says:
              (link)

              @royce!, No. Keep sulking. I need the company.

                @Steve, Sounds good. H2h is terrible.

                (link)

                @Grey, Well, not exactly…it’s just a byproduct of all the “weight training” I’ve been doing…

                  You’re caught up in the wrong world, royce!! (I needed to add my own exclamation.)

    Survived the Casher death spiral! On to the semi-finals.

    1. Drop Straily or hold?

    2. Tillman @ SEA @ BOS OR Cobb BOS, TOR @home OR neither

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      1. Can lose him if you need the room… 2. Tillman

  81. Poo Holes says:
    (link)

    Here are my scenarios: Minor gets a quality start and I lose, Minor gets bombed and Harper and Heyward do nothing and I lose, I get one homer from either Harper or Heyward and I tie, I get more than one homer from them or miraculously end up with 8+ RBI and I win.

    I can’t believe my season is in the hands of Bryce Harper.

      Fingers crossed for you….

        @Grey, Thanks homey, I’ll need it.

    Watch Ethier hit a home run here, just to rub salt in.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Ha… Why he’s on your bench?

  83. Steve says:
    (link)

    At least LaRoche hasn’t made things worse by hitting a home run, I suppose.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Yeah, small consolations…

    H2H playoffs, you starting MadBum tomorrow at home vs. COL?

      I am…

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        @Grey, It was the Miggy home run that actually screwed me. It put him in the lead in HRs and set up the save opp for Valverde.

        No homer and Steve wins.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          It came down to Valverde then in the end? Damn…

          • Steve says:
            (link)

            @Grey, Even if Valverde hadn’t been horrible I would have still needed LaRoche to homer, which he didn’t, so the Miggy home run was key.

            • Grey

              Grey says:

              Oh, gotcha… Well, you still got the roto leagues right?

              • Steve says:
                (link)

                @Grey, This is very true.

                Not sure I can even be bothered playing for 5th/6th…

                • Grey

                  Grey says:

                  How are the roto leagues doing this year?

                  • Steve says:
                    (link)

                    @Grey, I’ve fought my way back to 3rd in the RCL after a horrible post-ASB swoon, and I think I’m in third in both my keepers.

                    Though today in the 14 teamer it was one of those days when you think maybe it’s not going to happen, you know?

                    • Grey

                      Grey says:
                      (link)

                      I hear ya… I was starting to battle back but I had 5 homers all week in the RCL and hit .212… Terrible time to go crazy cold…

                    • Steve says:
                      (link)

                      @Grey, I started Straily, Werner, Vogelsong, Morrow and Haren – and hit .175 into the bargain!

                      Yikes… Yeah, I didn’t have any guys going against those pitchers, unfortunately… My pitching’s been nails for about 3 months…

                    • Steve says:
                      (link)

                      @Grey, My pitching has actually been pretty decent in that league. Strasburg, Morrow, J-Zimm, Milone, Maholm, Jim J.

                      The Robot has helped the hitting, Holliday, Wilin and Altuve have been good too.

                      Doesn’t sound like a bad team at all…

                    • Steve says:
                      (link)

                      @Grey, Yeah. A nice draft and some inspired in-season managing (emoticon)

                  • Steve says:
                    (link)

                    @Grey, Which reminds me – I have a “how good is mike trout?” to share.

                    He is so good, that on the team I own him, and where my starting infield is Hosmer, Uggla and Lawrie, I’ve been in or around 1st place most of the season.

                    • Grey

                      Grey says:
                      (link)

                      Ha… Yeah, on the two teams we have him, we’re battling for first… And those teams are very weak but AL-Only… Wait, what team is that that is in 1st all year?

                    • Steve says:
                      (link)

                      @Grey, Oh – a slight exaggeration perhaps. It’s the 14-teamer that I’m in with big o and vinko. Got off to a bit of a slow start but them climbed the league. Spent a fair bit of time in 1st, but bouncing between 2nd and 3rd now.

                      It’s the team that royce! drafted for me.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Grey, word. I’ll give him a shot. You hanging on to Chapman? I don’t know what to do. It’s a keeper, but he’s clogging a roster spot and I won’t keep him anyway.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          You wouldn’t keep him? He’s been a top five pitcher this year…

    Chris Nelson has been on fire.

    Nelson or Forsythe at 3B?

    Thanks dude.

      I’d go Logan but both had been solid of late…
