I sat out today’s podcast due to inclement weather (not true).  It was raining here and I felt blue (still not true; it never rains in Southern California, listen to Tony Toni Tone.  I think I might’ve been kicked off the podcast due to my high-pitched squeal.  I’m investigating lawsuits.  “Honorable sir from Canada, I wish to be on my podcast?”  “Will you promise not to cackle?”  “Dah!”) Instead, underwear model, Tehol, joins the pod to discuss the waiver wire, but Nick suggests Tehol get one of his undergarment companies on board as an in-studio sponsor.  Weird, I always imagined Nick already did the podcast in his underwear.  I guess I can still imagine that.  Also, Tehol goes into detail about how easy it is to score chicks as an underwear model.  I’d say if you’re an underwear model and you can’t score chicks, you’re gay.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that.  Also, author BJ Rudell joined Nick to discuss some overlooked baseball strategies and why co-ownership is the work of the devil.  Then JB brings us the daily fantasy report and discusses how he killed it in the Play with Rudy from Razzball contest last week.  Finally, Rudy tells us how to use his new tools, the Buysellatops and Platoony Tunes.  (Only the Hitter-Tron tool needs you to tickle its balls to work.)  If you just found this post by typing into Google “gay” + “fantasy podcast” + “BJ” + “underwear model” + “tickle its balls.”  Welcome!  We don’t judge!  Anyway, here’s the Razzball podcast (now with BJ & The Bear, Nick):

    looking for some pop on waivers…who is the better pickup Joyce, Nava or Gyorko? Thanks Grey!

    • shibboleth says:

      @Fried Fish Fan: I’d say Joyce, even with his platoon split. Gyorko has nice MI eligibility but if you seek pop above all else, that’s Joyce. IMHO

    Asked this on the previous post…Just got offered a trade Cobb for Mujica in my 10 team, H2H league. Here’s my staff:

    SP – Greinke
    SP – Peavy
    SP – Anibal
    SP – Minor
    SP – Iwakuma
    SP – Teheran
    SP – Vargas
    SP – Wheeler
    CL – Wilhelmsen
    CL – Mujica
    CL – Gregerson
    DL – Street

    If I lose Mujica, my closers are really weak and the only one available is Valverde (who was just dropped this morning). Thoughts?

      @B.o.B: Make the trade and pick up Valverde. It’s like a free ace handed to you.

    In a dynasty league I’m thinking if trading for Dom brown. Is offering longoria and morse for brown and ellsbury a good deal?

    Mr. Gray: I was on the cusp.. So, I moved this one over here…

    In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m quietly not signing off with ESTRADA!!! anymore..

    In fact luckily, I only had him on one team anyway… Taking my SP early and multiple closers late instead…

    He was my worst forecast other than Josh Donaldson (Mien Gott, I was in another galaxy on him) this year…

    I, unlike you, have been proven not to be perfect..

    YAP!!! YAP!!! YAP!!! YAP!!! (quickly followed by simultaneously, scratching behind my ear and licking my genitals)

    good afternoon Grey! i’d like a well-respected second opinion on a trade offer, and here you are! pretty please to be pondering this for half a minute: my current closers are janssen, cishek, street(dl), and a league/jansen tandem. i’ve been looking to deal a spare outfielder for a “safer” closer to put in my pen, but the best offer i can get is andrew bailey, for nate mclouth.

    i can afford it, since my outfield is mccutchen, choo, alex gordon, dom brown (if that’s not a grey/razzball outfield i don’t know what is), frazier, mclouth, leonys martin, and puig.

    but do i really want to gamble on bailey at the cost of mclouth, or will he just be another bum in my pen? i don’t feel like i need to rush, but the offer is on the table, and i don’t think seeing 1-2 good outings this week makes bailey all of a sudden “solid”. thanks, and have a good one!

      • Byron from Austin says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        thanks a bunch! i’m not “desperate” for saves, but just that you aren’t scared too much of him is good. i had a good trade day! traded feldman to get gyorko, and then mclouth to get bailey. i feel good.

        woe is me in first place, nowhere to go but down… :D

    In my sadistic H2H points league: 7 pts for W, -7 for a L, 1 SP spot. I gotta flip a coin between Homer at home vs. COL (Nicasio) and Moore at home vs. DET (Anibal). Leaning Homer, who ya got tonight Grey?

      • MattTruss223 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Right, I have a hard time sitting guys in that league though. Always feel like I may as well try to put up points. Homer and Moore have been going on the same day for about a month, stinks. They were finally on different days when the Matt Moore rain start happened. Crappy, thanks man.

    Hi Grey,

    I am having issues with these moves …

    Drop Alejandro De Aza for B.J. Upton?

    Drop Norichika Aoki for B.J. Upton assuming I don’t drop Austin Jackson?

    Drop Miguel Montero for Salvador Perez?

    Drop Brett Lawrie for David Freese?

    Thanks…

    Mike.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Mike: I’d go to Perez and Freese…

        @Grey: Thanks Grey! I appreciate it. Mike.

  9. Hi Grey — The Buyseeatops tells me that of the three 1B/OF I’m rostering (Moreland, Ike Davis, Hosmer) Moreland is the biggest “sell,” and I’m guessing he’s got the highest trade value of the trio anyway. Would it be a bad idea for me to trade Moreland, my starting 1B most of time, and go with Ike and Hosmer?

    And if I do trade Moreland, what level of SS (where I need help) should I shoot for? Is Prado/AEscobar/Zobrist about right? Or am I shooting too high?

    • @Enrique: That was supposed to be “1B/UTIL,” obviously.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Enrique:Sure… I’d try for Zobrist or Alcides

    Question to Pod Castors: When can we expect Mr. Jay Wrong on the show..

    Or has he been relegated to the “weekends only” RazzBall gulag..

    I’m thinking, that having Mr. Wrong on would be the equivalent to having Professor Irwin Corey on the old Steve Allen late night TV show or even a latter day male Moms Mabley on. …

    Man, Jed Lowrie batting cleanup today…does that happen often and I’ve never noticed? I thought he was a 2-hole kinda guy…

      @MattTruss223:

      That’s your Oakland A’s in a nutshell. I chuckled yesterday during the pregame show Melvin said about Lowrie, “we love his line up flexibility.” It’s not enough to play multiple positions and be willing to platoon. Now you have to have line up flexibility too.

    How good will Rendon be this year? He only qualifies at 3B in my league and I already have Longoria, Frazier and Johnson (we start 2), would you put in a claim for him? Important notes – we have to start a rookie and I’m rolling with Hicks right now, and this would also be my last available claim prior to our mid-year draft. There aren’t a whole lot of exciting bats available on the wire.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Milarky: I’d hold off on him…

    Pedroia is on the block from the league batting champ (also the league pitching bum). He’s clearly desperate for pitching. Would a combo of Chapman and Moore be too much for Pedroia and a toss-in? OPS+ SOLDS league.

    I want Pedroia! If you can make this happen I will christen our love child “Grey”.

      @Prezz: we’re all about increasing the funny-ness at The “Soon to be Sponsored” Razzball Podcast. We were however noticing that having to coordinate myself in Toronto, Grey in Malibu and Rudy in the panhandle was just bananas.

      Ok that’s just the cover story and I can’t hold back anymore. G’n’R have gone the way of Guns ‘N Roses and have split up. Due to the settlement agreement we can’t have them on as the same time.

    I’m looking to do a two-for-one trade offering Mike Leake and James Loney in a package. What would be a realistic trade target? I’m in need of either someone who gives me a lot of runs and a moderate number of RBIs and steals, or a good closer. I’m in need of runs and saves the most.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Go for a closer… Maybe a donkeycorn…

  22. Got three Pitchers with tough matchups but I thinking of starting them all,
    Moore vs Det,
    Josh J vs. Giants and
    Skaggs v Cards.
    The one I am thinking of sitting most is Skaggs, figured I would hold him, see how he did then maybe toss him against the Giants…Cards bats at the moment scare me. I am under innings by a long ways though…any wise advice oh mustachioed one?

    Hey Grey,

    Asked you this a couple of weeks ago, but need to ask again.

    Have Stanton coming back soon, and Zimmerman at my util (machado at3b, gordon,choo,jupton at of) I’m short on SBS, and my ss/2b right now is profar/aybar.

    Would you trade Zimmerman for Everth / Desmond / Hanram?

    Need to do something otherwise Zimmerman/Stanton going to be on my bench.

    Thanks!

    Hi Grey… been a busy morning, so I didn’t have a chance to reply to one of your comments in the last thread. I posted my lineup and problem and you graciously took the time to answer. Very much appreciated. (Here’s the thread: http://razzball.com/how-now-brown-wow/#comment-1991539) This is sort of a ‘are you sure’ follow-up, but if I heed your advice and lose Gregerson for Desmond, I’d wind up with two bench bats–which goes against all my fantasy baseball sensibilities. So, before I make the move official, this is ok with you?

      • chillmodious says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Loud and clear. Just made the move and not looking back. Do want to add one final question… when Giancarlo and Street come back, provided everything else stays the same, I pretty much have to lose Morse at that point, right?

          Grey says:
          (link)

          @James: Maybe, but unless the league is deep and you have him for a $1 with unlimited keepers, I don’t see how he enters the picture for your team, then again I don’t know your team…

          • James says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Unlimited keepers as long as you can afford them ($250 budget) He’s currently on another owners team but I like his upside. I’d try to make a trade for him but I’m not sure how he projects over the next handful of seasons. What do you think?

            • James says:
              (link)

              @James: I also currently have David Robertson because I’m banking on him taking over for Rivera, Andrew Bailey, and Vinnie Pestano. Basically, I’m trying to set myself up with 2-3 good closers (preferrably 3) going into next season. Just didn’t know if you think Rondon has the stuff to be a good one.

            • Grey

              Grey says:

              I think he has a 40% of closing next year… He’s worth about $3

    I’m assuming Rendon will be taking over at 2b, and could use a backup if Kelly Johnson doesn’t pan out. Drop Wheeler, Gausman, Porcello or Skaggs for him?

        @CramYourCatcherQuestionUpYourCramhole: yeah, I dropped him for Rendon, but think he could surprise–he was pretty solid against DET, which made me think that he could have righted the ship.

          @royce!: It’s just funny to me how everyone clamored for him. He has 60 minor league innings under his belt. He’s not Strasburg. I don’t understand why people in standard leagues are running him out there as like a 7th or 8th SP.

    1.pena or de rosa for bench bat to replace floimon/ellis, pena seems to play more and SS eligible. Think his playing time stays decently steady? pena would likely only play when gyorko or a ramirez is off.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

        @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: 3.only applies to today. i’ve had van slyke and he’s hitting either 0-4 or 2-4 every day i’ve had him. with some doubles and homers. hitting cleanup too. my team on the year is really weak at rbi’s but best in league at runs. Somewhat due to j-up’s bad luck early and bad play lately, and a ramirez’s injury.

    drop profar for rendon? i have a feeling rendon will be better for the year (i.e. profar will have less playing time once kinsler comes back (obviously until kinsler gets hurt again) – thoughts. plus i like rendon’s future flexibility for both 2b and 3b.
    thanks (as always)

    • JB Gilpin

      @teker: I’m personally not a big Rendon fan. If Espinosa can get anything going when he gets off the DL (which shouldn’t be too long unless he’s completely lost the role even when he’s healthy again if Rendon rakes), Rendon will have the same playing time questions as Profar. I think I’d hold Profar personally

    Via trade just got Castro and gave up Freeman in my H2H points league. Leaves me with Posey and Moreland to plug into 1B. Also need to fill an IF slot. For my 1B and IF slot, should I: a) Use Posey as 1B, keep Moreland in IF, and pick up Sal Perez for C (dropping Aybar), or b) Use Moreland as 1B, keep Posey in C, and leave Aybar in the IF slot, or c) Use Moreland as 1B, keep Posey in C, and pick up someone else for the IF slot (dropping Aybar) such as Neil Walker, Doumit, Rendon, Michael Young, or Chris Carter?

    Rendon or Profar??? I own Profar until Kinsler comes off the DL. 9 moves remaining in league untill we start getting charged 2.00 a pop. Would you hold on Profar till Kinsler gets back? also have Aoki and Teixiera splitting time in UTL. Would Rendon be better off splitting time with one of them or just hold??

    QUESTION — I’m working on freeing up a bench spot to snag another SP arm to stash– want your opinion on which of these arms you like for ROS? 14 team, redraft, 6×6 (holds). How do you rank these dudes:

        The p-cast was muy bueno – its on at work. blaring thru the halls. assistants come in and listen. dance a jig, quite the social gathering over here. just wanted to give you some credit.

        Interesting response on the SP arms. If I was gonna guess, thought you would say Archer and Erasmo. I kinda feel Turner is a home start only…

        Are you anti-Hudson cause of the lack of control likely from post TJS and the fact that he doesn’t necessarily have a spot? Ditto Archer (without the TJS) and Detwiler cause he’s rather dull (with no Ks) and battling injury?

    Im currently In 1st place in a 12 team roto auction dynasty. I recently completed two deals to shore up my hitting. Im leading In runs, sb, avg, top 3 in all pitching categories but lagging in middle of the pack in hr, rbi. I gave jennings $13 wacha $4 for trumbo $17 and colon $4. In the other deal I shipped out gyorko $2, fher $25, mujica $4, for cano $35, dickey $17, and pestano $1. The prices increase $3 per season if kept but I figured these two modes could put me over the top ROS. The rest of my roster is
    C grandal
    1b goldy
    3b machado
    Ss escobar
    Mi cozart
    Ci rizzo
    Of choo
    Of bruce
    Of ellsbury
    Of cutch
    Of a Jones
    P h bell
    P a reed
    P m latos
    P s miller
    P a cashner
    P gausman
    P santana
    P wheeler
    Dl ogando
    Dl luebke

    Trumbo and Cano would be replacing jennings and gyorko in starting lineup and id just stream the p slot of fher and mujica. Thanks….keep up the good work.

    Did you miss this in the earlier thread,or did I actually get something right and you concurred?

    “Aviles also qualifies at 3B in Yahoo.Looks like he’ll be playing full time for the next couple weeks.
    If I only had to worry about 2B/SS I probably would have gone with Dozier,but I’m still not sure what’s up with Beltre and my only other 3B is Matt Carpenter,who I really like where he is,as the fireman on my bench,so I took the short term safe route with Aviles in disregard to upside. I’m sure Beltre will be back in a few days and I’ve got Reyes on the DL,but you never really know in this kind of tight spot.

    I’m awaiting Grey’s wisdom about it.”

    @ Grey

    I’m struggling at 3B this year with MIddlebrooks and Moustakas. I just picked up Rendon today and then somebody dropped Arenado. It’s a 10-team, very deep bench, re-draft league. Who should I drop for Aenado? Gerrit Cole, Morrow, Gausman, Straily, Moustakas, Belt, Rendon, or Middlebrooks?

    I’m tempted to drop Cole because I already have a ton of young pitchers (Cingrani, Wheeler, Jose Fernandez, Cashner, Shelby Miller, Matt Harvey, Gausman, and Straily) and I’m worried about innings limits with all these guys.

          @Juan Lleno de Odio:

          What kind of league is it? If when Street comes back are you dumping Gregerson or is there some residual value in middle relief (holds, RCL style GS cap?)?

          There’s a chance Franklin will give you a few bags if steals matter. What’s your saves run rate? Would a handful of saves from Gregerson be material in the standings when you look at the closer spread in your league? In a vacuum I’d say I’m inclined to to take Gyorko and the roster flexibility unless it’s deep or there’s a tactical category advantage in the saves or possibly steals categories to be had.

          • Juancarlo Lleno de Odio says:
            (link)

            @OaktownSteve: guy has been fishing lately, Brothers and Allen, so i see signs of desperation, he can make some movement with a few saves, and like many FBB’s we know that Street’s 15 days in the hole can turn into 60 really fast, I’m hoping for that, I just waivered Henderson, some guy was bursting with DL’d players, so i have a guy to replace anyone I trade. Putz is also floating, who I wouldn’t mind grabbing to insure Arizona saves ROS

            Problem in this league is too much pitching on my team, too good to drop, no takers on trades that actually help both teams…… Greinke, Moore, Peavy, Samardjiza, Burnett, Corbin, Shelby, and Wacha

      @EmporersMonkey: The least the bastard could do, is do something other than hit singles up until the point he gets suspended.

    Hey Grey,

    So I don’t always follow your buy/sell but I think you’ll appreciate this little perfect circle: Your recent sell on Shelby Miller seemed to follow with some regression from him. Cardinals seem to be preserving him a bit, etc. So last Saturday I did it straight up: Miller for Jason Heyward (after your Friday buy on Jhey). Heyward was 0 for his last 18 and the guy in my league accepted within like 5 minutes. Haha… I had Heyward in my lineup last night for the first time…dinger city. Good stuff man, thanks.

    I’ve got a glut of of with trout, cespedes, brown my allwaysstars right now.. Also have mclouth, marte, aoki, and nava I spin through 2 ut spots based on hittertron magick. Giancarlo looms on the DL (thanks for the drops of jupiter ear worm this am) So my pitching has fallen apart and I’m looking to work a trade..

    Buysellatops points out nava as a sell candidate and I’m thinking of targetting Corbin for nava… Should I aim higher? I’ll miss those runs and RBI fo sho.

    Throw out a random name of the level of guy you’d try to get for nava?

    Welp, of course I drafted Braun in both leagues because someone (cough, Grey, cough) told me not to worry about the PED BS. Hopefully my team that has dominated the season thus far (10.5 game lead on 2nd) will be strong enough to go on without him if he gets suspended.

    Does anyone have any idea how this shit will go down? Can the MLBPLA fight this and drag it out for a few months? Can Braun’s lawyers tell Selig to fuck off?

    Reprising a story I told in the offseason. Heard and interview with a beat writer who got a minute with Puig.

    Beat writer: Hey I’m so and so, great to meet you. Exited about seeing you in a Dodger uniform. I was wondering if I could ask you a couple of questions. How’s the spring training been? A lot of adjustments?

    Puig: PUIG!

        @Grey: Definitely. I scooped Puig up in my money league. Same league where i just acquired Heyward for Shelby, and where i drafted stupid ass Braun second overall. Heres to Puig and Heyward carrying the load Braun should have.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Can hold him for a few more, but I don’t know your options….

    • ThE sHiT says:
      (link)

      @Hondo: Hold him until you HAVE to make a decision on him, when Price or Beachy come back.

    Would you drop Daniel Murphy for Rendon? I would be empty on 2b until he gains eligibility. I can also drop Taveras. 5 man keeper

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Drop Taveras

      • Ro_Bauti says:

  167. Hondo says:

    Also have Verlander,JZimm,Hamels,Samajjazzriza,Teheran,Kluber and Wheeler.

    21 man H2H.

    Also-hang with Aviles or grab Giancarlo(or whatever his name is today) Franklin at SS until Reyes crawls back?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Franklin

    Would you do Cutch and Wheeler for Upton and Corbin?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      McCutchen side, but don’t know what Upton

  169. John says:
    (link)

    Drop Kenndy for Josh Johnson? Kennedy definitely has the easier schedule.

    Drop Melky (from my bench) for Puig?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Hold Kennedy… Grab Puig

  170. Jacks says:

    So I dumped an expensive Braun and other non-keeper parts last week in my keeper league for a cheap Tulo (and latos and bum)! And I picked up Puig. Dump to win, dump to win!

    If only I didn’t start Moore I’d be dancing in the streets …. my season just might rise from the ashes.

    It’s a lot funnier when you give up and go with the crazy flow that is baseball.

    Hi Grey,

    Somebody just sent Alex Gordon to the wire. Is he worth my number one waiver wire position?

    If yes, who do I cut loose?

    Wilin Rosario C
    Joey Votto 1B
    Paul Goldschmidt 1B
    Prince Fielder 1B
    Todd Frazier 1B,3B
    Jason Kipnis 2B
    Jose Altuve 2B
    Aramis Ramirez 3B
    Ryan Zimmerman 3B
    Elvis Andrus SS
    Carlos Beltran OF
    Jason Heyward OF
    Nick Markakis OF
    Norichika Aoki OF
    Yoenis Cespedes OF

    I was thinking Frazier, Aoki, or Markakis – but I am not sure which.

    Thanks!

    Mike.

    Just finished the podcast. I think the obvious next tool has to be a trade evaluator. Tie it into the existing Rest-of-Season values, adjusted for league size/categories and BAM! new trade tool.

    P.S. Booooo on lack of outro music…
