Besides our long, terrifically, lively adverbially-amazing debate on Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout, we also talk about things that are related to baseball like trying to secure a threesome with your fiancee and the salesmen at Best Buy.  I almost said salespeople, but decided against it because I’m old school.  My dog attacks my mailman, my mother slept with a milkman that had a thick, luscious mustache and the cable guy needs to come out so I can have a TV in the bathroom.  Also, Nick and I talk about Adam Jones, because Nick’s trying to make me look smart.  No problem there, boom bip with a brother named Grey on the IQ-tip and I’m ready to flip.  Also, we talk about European herb-based digestives.  If you have an ulcer because of your fantasy team and are a drunk, you’ve come to the right place!  Oh, and Rudy doesn’t make it on this podcast because he was at a Memorial Day picnic, showing other fathers how his kid nests in his afro.  Elsewhere on the podcast, JayWrong comes on to discuss how his bold preseason predictions aren’t looking so crazy, and JayWrong trademarked the plus sign.  So, anytime someone writes something like Everth Cabrera will steal 120+ bases, JayWrong gets a nickel.  Sky got the day off from working at Biff’s Blowup Doll Emporium, so he was able to join Nick and discuss why Liriano, Pedro Alvarez and Adam Lind are good buys.  Also Sky is cheap and his drink of choice is whatever’s on the bottom shelf, depending on the height of your bartender.  Finally, JB, the new Daily Fantasy Report Roving Reporter (aka the new Scud Stud), comes on to brag about his hits from last week and who to check out in this Friday’s contest.  Anyway, here’s the Razzball Podcast (now with me cracking brilliant, even if I need a spellchecker for the word brilliant):

    I’ve been offerred Edwin Encarnacion for my Homer Bailey. Feels like a great deal for me, except the problem is that I’m not sure my pitching staff can afford to lose him. It’s a bit of a mess at the moment. What do you think?

  9. OaktownSteve says:

    Gattis is an animal. I said it before…he has a very Goldschmidt like swing. Quick and compact for a big guy.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Just watched him hit that… He’s a beast, and McCann doesn’t look so bad either…

  10. Pete says:

    Thought I had a really nice OF for my 16-team H2H league this season, with Dread Pirate, Heyward and Morse. Finally McCutch is smoking the ball and Morse is ok as my #3, but do you think Heyward will ever wake up? He’s killing me.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I do think he’ll be fine… The appendix seemed to set back his timing a few weeks…

      • Pete says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I wish it had set his timing back a couple of years, to Spring Training his rookie year when he was breaking windshields in the parking lot.

      Franklin

  12. Looking to jump start a stagnate O with a hot BJ pick up, Rasmus or Lind?

    Also is Joel Perralta the man to have backing up Rodney? They can’t stick with the Blind Archer much longer can they?

    Thanks, will check out the podcast now…

      Rasmus… Peralta is the man behind Rodney…

    This will be my third week playing Bone Face as a fill in for Kinsler and I’ve gotten ZERO steals out of the loser. He hit a HR and has driven in a few runs, but WTF happened to him? Looking at his peripherals I see that he has no infield hits this year, and flip flopped his FB and GB rates. He’s now doing way more of the former, which is not what you want when your only real asset is your legs. Lots of pop ups too. Not so sure he fits into the Jays way of hitting like Rajai …. and to think I could’ve picked up Kelly Johnson! End rant.

    • Jacks says:
      (link)

      @Jacks: And he is walking a ridiculous 3% of the time. So the Jays big swing ethic is really hampering him.

      • AL KOHOLIC says:
        (link)

        @Jacks: yeah i finnaly dropped him

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I hear ya… We own him too… It’s the anti-Dwayne Murphy effect.

  14. Nathan says:
    (link)

    Do you like Kelly Johnson to have a decent rest of the year? Trade Starling Marte for Johnson?

    Thanks so much, you’re the best!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I like Johnson, but I like Marte more… Johnson can easily be benched if he starts slumping…

    Dynasty league:
    I give Rendon and Homer Bailey, I get Chris Sale.
    16 teams, h2h, points.

    I have Arenado at 3B and Altuve at 2B so Rendon would be my Util if he got called up and did well. I’m worried about trading a possible All-Star, but Sale is already an All-Star… Thanks man!

    Not sure whether to give up on Espinosa just yet. I wanna see what he can do when he comes back tonight.

    Regardless, if I were to drop him who do you like ros??

    Yunel, Didi, or the dude who might take my lady after a dance battle haha

    Thoughts on trading Votto for McCutchen, CarGo or Braun in a 10 team keeper league? I have Goldy and instead of keeping 2 1B I am looking at trading Votto for a 5 tool OF if possible.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

  20. Anthony says:

    @Grey: You told me to drop Cishek for Jose Fernandez- Doing this would give me 1 Closer- Should I just completely ignore that position? 2 Seasons ago I wony my first and only pay league with 3 closers I believe.

    PS: Is Chisek not closing for Mia ?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Chisek is out… You need to find a different closer or go with J-Fer…

    for rest of week should we sit mcallister tonight, and kendrick at home against BOS (does have a good start mon, so keep him) in a couple of days? 16 team h2h. I dropped Porcello for this streamer
    Stults vs SEA.
    Are any of these later in week any good
    1.Nuno vs METS mess (Nuno’s been alright, and this offense is horrible)
    2.Kluber vs Cobb (his 43-7 k to bb and more than k per inning makes me want to simply keep him over these other options)
    3.Blanton vs HOU (this guy is seriously blowing stream o nator)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d sit those guys… Kluber

      @ThE sHiT:

      Can you fit them both on your roster?

      • ThE sHiT says:
        (link)

        @Sanfran: Actually i can. I just dropped Venable instead. He was my 5th of in a 3 of, 1 util h2h league. Thanks for the idea!

        • Sanfran says:
          (link)

          @ThE sHiT:

    Grey, need some fast advice. Donaldson and Pence were just dropped in my league. I have the number one waiver claim and wonder if I should use it. I don’t know why this is a difficult decision, but I was hoping to get some input.

    10 team mixed league. Second place.
    1b- fielder
    2b- kipnis
    3b- wright
    SS- castro
    C– mccann
    Of- Cruz, Jennings, parra, (hart, Stanton).
    Utl- goldy

    Thanks!

    • Evil Grey says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: I don’t know why either. Where would Donaldson play? Pence over Parra.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Parra for Pence

    Hello Grey,
    Please let me know your answers to these 2 questions in 12 team H2H points league:
    1. ROS – Franklin, Alexei Ramirez, Lowrie (rest of season steamer has Alexei then Lowrie but Franklin wasn’t in the mix at the time)
    2. Offer my Crisp for Heyward? Seems laughable at first…is it too crappy to offer or should I just see what happens? Don’t really need Heyward but I don’t start Crisp with my OF depth (McCutchen/J.Upton/C.Davis/Fowler) and I can’t trade Crisp to anyone else for a ham sandwich. If Heyward heats up he could be easier to move.

    • Evil Grey says:
      (link)

      @smegma: Heywards’ better than a ham sandwich.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Lowrie… I’d take Heyward

      • steve says:

        @Grey:

        Thanks for your hard work Grey. I don’t believe that this has been directly asked/answered (although you did state Lowrie over Franklin) above…

        I currently have Alexei Ramirez rostered….Franklin over Ramirez?

    Braun is the 57th rated player right now. Gio is very pedestrian compared to last year. Melky has hit 2 HRs in 201 ABs. Seeing these guys true talent without mother’s helper?

    • Sanfran says:
      (link)

      @OaktownSteve: I

      It has been reported Braun has played thru neck and thumb injuries. Better start rubbing some “clear” on there instead of dirt.

      • Prezii says:
        (link)

        @Sanfran: that would most likely be my excuse if i was cheating too…

        “Its my thumb, coach, i swear!”

          @Prezii:

          My thoughts also.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Braun has complained of injuries, maybe mother used to help him overcome injuries quicker… Melky was garbage before Mom so I wouldn’t be surprised there… Gio surprises me…

      • OaktownSteve says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        The fastball velocity is down a little and the walk rate is back up. It’s not impossible to think that without the helper he’s not as confident in attacking the zone and he’s doing some nibbling.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, that’s a good point… Still feel it’s early on Braun and Gio to say definitely, but the seed as been planted…

    Re-posting to your newest post:

    I don’t know why you are so surprised about CarGo(m). In 415 ABs/137 games last year, he was on a 30 HR/75 RBI/50+ SB pace. This year, whether you look at ABs or games, he’s on a … wait for it … 30+ HR/75+ RBI/30+ SB pace. He was one of the few keepers I got right, so I’m happy being 9th in my league and wrong about the rest of my team. Oh, wait ….

    Last week the Marlins announced that Giancarlo was doing some “functional” running. This week he’s doing “light” running. Is light better than functional?

    Players such as Alfonso Soriano, D Span, M Brantley, K Morales, & Pedro Alvarez are available on the wire, and the Yelich call up looms in a keeper league. I was already going to drop Victorino because of his backhammy and his crappy ROS hitter tron projection(-6.5). Should I also drop GParra, Leonys Martin(1 week hitter tron pickup), and Konerko for any of the waiver wire players above? I was waiting to drop Marcum after he faces MIA this week.

    Grey!
    I have Alex Rios, Jose bautista and Carlos Gomez in the outfield.

    Bautista I always want to start. Rios and Gomez are having very solid years but PLATOONY TUNES on the site, LEONYS MARTIN is way more valuable than they are against right handed pitchers.

    According to it, leonys martin is an outright pimp against right handed pitchers.

    I currently have an empty roster spot that im dangling after dropping Gausman (don’t trust him against DET but am starting him tonight against WAS).

    Should I pick up Leonys Martin and start him when Rios or Gomez are facing a right hander?

    Im thinking everytime Carlos Gomez faces a right hander, I will plug in Leonys Martin. Good move? Highly recommended?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I don’t love it… Not the way Gomez is going… But against very tough right handers it’s okay… But then you’re just carrying a guy for once a week maybe… Eh

      • RudyCorrales says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        How about this?

        Thanks Tom, i dig into it a little bit more after you mentioned him not playing on the road.

        Rios is facing right handed pitching Wednesday, friday, saturday AND they are away games.

        During those same dates, Leonys is facing right handed pitching and the games are in arlington park. Should I start Leonys over Rios for these 3 games?

        how much do you like the move for those 3 games? just trying to get those extra base hits and runs that might make the difference at the end of this week.

        am i just being nuts over here?

    Hey grey, remember last week when I was screwed over by a fellow manager who grabbed the only viable 2nd baseman ( murphy ) to spite me?

    Well, he’s done it again. He grabbed franklin, leaving me no choice but to play the horrendous rickie weeks.

    Did we ever come up with a razzball glossary term for the dick move to spite someone?

    At this stage, I think I’m resigned to riding the weeks wave. He got hot last year. Do you think he does it again or is something more fundamentally wrong with him this year?

    Damn time zones. I moved Braun out of my Util spot last night NZT and moved Castro in cos all the news indicated that Braun wouldn’t play today. (I’d previously picked up Dom Brown as Braun insurance). I’d still be asleep when the Astros game started so was stuck with Castro at Util.

    So of course Braun is playing and Castro didn’t, and to make matters worse, J-Up sat too, meaning I couldn’t move Brown to his spot.

    All this means I have to choose between a gimpy Braun and Brown taking aim at the short porch in left at Fenway for my LF slot.

    What to do?

      @SteveNZ: I saw on Facebook that a few of my nz friends posted pics of all the snow that they got in queenstown. Is it also cold in your neck of the woods?

        @gareth: Yeah, for Auckland it’s pretty cold. It’s about 9 deg Celsius (and sunny) right now, but was much colder than that during the night. Was about 4 deg when I got up this morning.

        And yeah, the winter has arrived in a big way in the South Island…

    So here is my situation. I’m in a deep 14 team keeper mixed league.

    Scoring is as follows:
    BA, HR, RBI, R, SB, TB+BB, OBP
    ERA, WHIP, W, QS, K, INN, SV

    Im in 1st place all season and currently have a double digit lead on second, but I am worried about my pitching.

    C-M.Montero
    1B-Goldy
    2B-Pedroia
    3B-Longoria
    SS-Prado
    OF-Ellsburry
    OF-Bautista
    OF-Bourn
    OF-Kelly Johnson
    DH-Papi
    DH-Rotation of Lind/E.Chaves based on who has the easier schedule/most righties

    SP-Verlander
    SP-M.Moore
    SP-E.Santana
    SP-P.Maholm
    SP-Cashner
    SP-Phelps
    RP-Reed
    RP-Bell
    RP-Pestano

    I have Beachy, D.Hudon and B.Anderson on my DL.

    I got offered Wainwright for Papi and am not sure I need to make this move? Can I survive with my current pitching and hope for one of the guys on my DL to be good? Can my offense afford to loss of Papi? I appreciate the advice and thoughts.

    Bravo Grey and Sky, I can honestly say that podcast was a homerun. It really made me feel good to know that me drafting Burnett everywhere (literally) was the right move. I have no focused my trading to moving Jordan Zimmerman, what OF’s should I target.

    I hate asking this type of question but from what I have tried to get vs. what I have been offered I see nothing but Hate in English coming back

        • gareth says:
          (link)

          @Juan Lleno de Odio: zimmermans numbers are great but I think the perception of him is still the low k guy in the shadow of stras and gio. I’m a fan of his though. Would you accept a rios, melky or aoki?

          • Juan Lleno de Odio says:
            (link)

            @gareth: rios and aoki are much much better than melky this year, melky is worth about a #4 starter.

            Rios is about right, Zimm is worthy of a #2 OF, the thing about him is there are no hiccups, he gets a W almost everytime

      Thanks! I’d want a number one, top 10 OF… Look at the Player Rater, Zimmermann’s been incredible and I see no end in sight… Lowest I’d go is a Holliday type, but after exhausting all options…I wish I was in your league, I could use pitching…

      • Juan Lleno de Odio says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I was thinking a low 1 or high 2 OF, his K’s may not be the best, but everything else, including W’s is amazing. I have decided to hold on to Max, AJ, and Samardjiza and stream the rest of the way. I have such a bad offense with Giancarlo out and BJ trying to blow himself instead of hitting….

                  @Prezii: I’ve tried to be civil with him but he talks a lot of smack in our RCL league. I don’t like everyone, hence the hate in the name. In general I think most people are selfish and conniving, it’s very rare I find an individual I really like. But I also think certain people are good for certain things, the same guys I might drink with are not the ones I want to invite over for a family BBQ. Just as people who actually know me, I wouldn’t want to play fantasy sports with. I guess what I’m saying is I hate people and love individuals….so are we hangin when i come back to the bay again?

                      Ha, yeah… Though I’m with Grey on the average not staying that high, I do think it would be a good long-term trade. J-Z’s value is inflated by wins he didn’t get last year. Still the same solid pitcher but nothing to go gaga over, lady or not. Davis’ power has always been real and he’s not gonna lose his spot in that lineup any time soon.

    Grey,

    Have Tex coming off the DL soon with CIs of Miggy, AuShizz, Machado and Moreland – do I drop Moreland outright, or look to trade someone? Also, would you start Tex relatively quickly out of the gate, or would you leave him on the DL as long as possible to see if he is right?

    The reason I bring up the Uncertainty versus Upside question is because I’ve heard a few times from Baseball people that the jump from AAA to the Majors is bigger than ever.

    Of course you have the anomalous Trout and Harper, but more often than not these guys scuffle and sometimes get sent back and forth.

    There also to be a number of AAAA floaters out there that are too good for AAA but can’t quite cut it at the highest level.

    I get that young upside players are exiting, but for me its a case of overvaluing an unknown versus undervaluing a known commodity.

    • Prezii says:
      (link)

      @Gareth: you are going to miss out if you think that way gareth. Most of these guys coming up are top”ish” prospects for a reason. You could get burned, sure, but could also be rewarded heavily. Close mouth doesnt get feed.. or some cliche like that.. the reward is usually bigger than the risk.. and if it doesnt work out, big deal he goes back on the wire… The one in your league, not the one in Bmore or in prison..

    Hello Grey. I am holding onto Gausman on my bench. I didn’t want to start him this week. Do you like him or Leake going forward? I don’t necessarily need pitching, but if Leake is going to continue pitching well, I may as well grab him.

    As usual, thanks much Grey.

    I’ve been looking through ROS Steamer projections and the best FA players available in my league are Ike Davis ($7.8), Ethier ($10.8) and EJax ($11.6).

    Not really interested in adding Ike (although Frazier is struggling, too), but should I add Ethier over Brantley or Leonys Martin or EJax over Tillman or Hammel?

    Thanks! Or I could lose Joel Peralta for any of those 3, actually…

    Hey Grey,

    Just found the site and already love it. My left side of the infield is a mess with middlebrooks/Gyroko and Seager. I’m looking to swap pitching for 2nd or 3rd and have been offered Sandoval or Phillips. Got two trade proposals for ya, what side do you have in both and which would you take in a keeper league that slightly favors hitting?

    Iwakuma and Revere for Sandoval
    Phillips and Pierre for Cueto, McLouth, Gyrko

    I will actually frame the Rookie argument differently – I have no argument with adding rookies (I added Harper last year) occasionally through the season. I have a problem with players that just go overboard doing this.

    For Example – A guy in my league has added Franklin, Gausman, Gattis, Jose Fernandez and Zach Wheeler this month. Wheeler was added at the beginning of the month. He’s not even in the Bigs yet. Will Myers and Trevor Bauer have sat on aguys bench all season. Isn’t that a waste in a shallow 10 team league? Guys like Wandy, Cahill, Morales, Estrada, Laroche and others are on the wire.

    • royce! says:
      (link)

      @Gareth: Why do you have a problem with others picking up rookies? Do you not only want to beat them, you want them to play as you would while you are beating them? Sorry, I’m a little grumpy…got a bit of Ga(u)s(man)…

      • Juan Lleno de Odio says:
        (link)

        @royce!: just grabbed the Mylanta after that triple nut punch….he is in a 10 teamer so I kinda agree with him, from that point of persepective, I always felt you can’t go overboard and have too many and you can’t drop someone who is actually good. I try to keep the children limit to 3, I just don’t want the Brady Bunch on my team

        • royce! says:
          (link)

          @Juan Lleno de Odio: Fair enough, obviously you don’t want to drop anyone valuable, but I seem to always have someone worth dropping…for example, dropped Ryan Webb for Gausman in one league, and O’Day for him in another (in both I had plenty of closers)…I dropped Matt Reynolds for Wacha, Cingrani for Odorizzi, yadda yadda…the drops I most regret were not losing anyone proven, but dropping Brown after his weak start and Gattis when he was slumping and McCann was due back.

          • Juan Lleno de Odio says:
            (link)

            @royce!: Brown has never been dropped in all my 12 teams, I had McCann and Sal and decided to stick it out with Sal *cracks beer like my dad*

            • royce! says:
              (link)

              @Juan Lleno de Odio: Yeah, his .233 through April made me think that he was just one of those dudes who killed in ST but couldn’t keep their shizz together when it mattered. Probably be kicking myself over that one for a while. At least I have Donaldson!

    Ok so tonight I learned not to go against SON. g-damn gausman.

    So looking at what’s available there’s nolasco, Parker, smyly, Ian Kennedy or de la rosa.

    Who is the replacement? And do you make of de la rosa. Tossed a decent one tonight. Looks like he has gotten over the gopheritis too. Tommy Hanson vs Houston for Friday- yes/no/ /f that bum? See ya at the tilted kilt

    it appears odorizzi/brothers/bell for opp’s aybar/medlen is going through by fri, after which RP is best for good stats future saves out of Coello/Delabar/Tazawa/Crain/Hunter/Allen? All are available. I’ll likely add 2 roster spots when this deal is done by dropping florimon as well. Will be open RP spot, and i’ll likely grab Mesoraco to go with Hanigan, as they are platooning them.

    What’s your take on Porcello (who K-ed 11 over 8 scoreless innings)? He’s looked spectacular the last month or so. Last 30 days he’s got 3.13 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 9.09 Ks/9 not counting tonight’s game. That’s #3 starter territory and maybe better. I don’t know what he’s doing differently now.

    Someone dropped Desmond Jennings. Should I pick him up? If yes should I use a #5 waiver? Could I also get your take on my team and my strategy? I focus mostly on hitting and stream my pitching. I focus on winning k’s and w’s and hope my hitting gets the rest. Considering the league setup is this a good approach? I won my league the last two years with this approach but this year hasn’t been going as well.

    Gausman–ouch! One would think being roofied would cure short eyes! But… it looks as though Odorizzi is being sent down…so, Archer up? Would it be wise to drop Gausman for Archer, speculatively? Or would it be wiser to overcome my shorteyes problem and drop him for, say, Leake or a solid RP (Rosenthal, Melancon…Coello)? In addition to Gausman, my pitchers are A. Chapman, Mo Rivera, MadBum, Gio(!), S. Miller, Niese, McCarthy, Wacha (fingers crossed), and Wheeler in a 12-team redraft league. Many thanks for any thoughts.
