Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

The guy who created my new (now old) avatar also did ones for Rudy and Nick (they’re all below the fold), and that got us talking about comics.  I never read comics as a yute, so I’m good for nothing in this conversation, but I have a serious question for those that did read comics in high school.  Did you know it was going to make it harder to get a girl or did you only want to date girls who thought it was fine to read comics?  This is coming from a guy whose only reading was the chyrons at the bottom left side of the screen for music videos.  “Little Grey, what are you doing?”  “Reading, mama.  Cher.  If I Could Turn Back Time.  Album:  Heart of Stone.  Label:  Geffen.”  I’m not saying comic book reading is bad, but there was a stigma, and at the gentle age of high school I think that stigma is obvious.  BTW, if you say you hid comic book reading from girls, you can’t hide that sorta thing.  This is more for 30-or-olders, as I think comic book reading doesn’t have the stigma it once did.  Shoot, they even have new names for them –> graphic novels, which just sounds cool.  Whatever ad exec that came up with the term ‘graphic novel’ should be hired by the National Board of Herpes to reinvent itself.  Fantasy baseball was also discussed, names like Greinke and Kipnis and Sammy Sosa, not the bleached blonde one, the original recipe Sosa.  Scott, the Prospect Whisperer, joined the podcast to talk about a few players who might be joining their parent clubs sooner rather than later.  JB discussed all things Draft Kingsy and Rudy no showed.  Apparently, he had a tickle in his throat.  Can’t let that man out on the weekend!  BTW, don’t you love how Nick is like Channing Tatum, the comic.   Nick’s graphic novel would have the emphasis on graphic.  Just call him Magic Nick.  Anyway, here’s the Razzball Podcast (now in anime):

                      The ones i got from berk are really generic looking but theyre good. It just says “regular”.. the strawberry one is “creative”.

                      Im liking the 16mg. Jack was right, the 24mg is harsh as hell.

                      Yeah, I started at 12 and never went higher with the intention of going lower at some point… 24 is like Jack Bauer shooting a flamethrower in your mouth…

                      I bought 16ish ETwists and smoked them all at once… Wait til its dark, we’ll have a light show!

                      No, really, i think ill tamper with the 12mg next time, just to experiment. But 16 seems right for me.

    I’ve been hesitant to drop Aybar (my one bench bat at the moment) because of Castro’s deep slump. Crazy to bench Castro and plug Aybar til he [hopefully] gets back on track?

    wow – those avatars are hilarious!

    Would you drop Porcello, Stults or Beachy for Ike Davis? 12 team H2H points league and Davis would likely ride the bench unless he keeps heating up as I have Goldy and Rizzo at 1b and IF. I also already have 2 bench bats (Aramis and Crisp) taking up some of my 6 total bench spots.

    which one plays, today only. hitter tron doesn’t have Hill number yet.
    Brown -2.7
    Hill ?
    machado 2.5
    headley .5
    Looks like Machado or Hill. Wil Myers also in the mix, but Hitter T liked him more, and he’s been better than any of the others so he’ll get the other Util spot. this question is about the last util spot.

    who are the 5 keepers in this group:

    Votto, Cano, J-Up, Stanton, Bumgarner, Harvey

    Currently have all but Stanton, but a proposed deal has me trading away Bum and Teheran for Stanton and Travis wood.

    • CramYourCatcherQuestionUpYourCramhole says:
      (link)

      @Jay: ? Then either Stanton or Bum shouldn’t be on the list, in which case, you’d have your 5. Unless you’re asking whether you should make that trade. Or maybe you’re asking in a round about way to see if they’d eliminate Stanton or Bumgarner, which would answer the trade question for you? It’s all very confusing. My answer is 7. You’re welcome.

      @JoeMorgan’sMustache: i only looked bad benching Choo against lefties like once out of last 6 times.

    So earlier was offered his CC for my Parker. CC costs more for the next couple years. The other owner out of FAAB money and I have alot of it. I decided to accept the trade. Thought it was a good deal for me.
    But 2 hours after i accepted it, he decided he didnt want to do it anymore and the commisioner allowed him to back out of it. I guess he got an offer he liked more for CC after our trade was accepted and he backed out of our deal and took the other.

    The commisioner said “that’s what the 2 day period is for, so other owners can get their offers in before trade goes through”

    Is it me or is this bush league?

    • Wilsonian says:
      (link)

      @JoshO: that’s a notch below Bush League…

        @Wilsonian: Below as in worse, or as in not quite bush league?

        • Wilsonian says:
          (link)

          @JoshO: worse. That kind of crap would make me find a new league. I’m in two leagues where the commish puts through the trades. There are no votes. And you can’t go back on it. One league they go through the same day. The other is the next day. If you make a trade, unless it is glaringly unfair to one side, they go through. The other managers can’t say “damn, I woulda traded you so-and-so for him” and get anything accomplished. Sure they can say it, but if you wanted to trade you should have made offers.

        • CramYourCatcherQuestionUpYourCramhole says:

          @JoshO: That’s not what the 2 day period is for. It’s a dick move.

            @CramYourCatcherQuestionUpYourCramhole:
            Thats what I said. My opinion is the 2 day period is in case of SERIOUS injuries (just like a physical in real llife) or if the trade is terribly unfair, the league can vote to veto it.

                It’s not even a public league. I became good friends with this guy I work with and his league with friends had an opening and I joined cuz these are generally good guys. and the league is really competitive. just some rules I never agreed with but didn’t want to “rock the boat” so to speak and never really brought it up since I was the new guy. How do I bring this up in the offseason to get it changed?

                • CramYourCatcherQuestionUpYourCramhole says:
                  (link)

                  @JoshO: Oh, well if you know that rule going in, maybe you can use it to your advantage. If it’s a tight knit group that’s been playing that way for years, just might have to play along. Hopefully they’re open minded if you mention that NOBODY uses the 2 day period for other teams to one-up the guy who’s already made the trade.

    @Grey – As usual, great posts today. I now have to block out 20 minutes every morning to go through your stuff. So, I’m pretty solid with pitching. Offense, not so much. 14 team, H2H. Currently playing Dozier at 2B (after Espinosa and giving up on Bonifacio).

    I’ve been offered Gyroko for Matt Moore.

    Is this enough? I really struggle swapping hitting for pitching and getting the values straight.

    My Asdrubal Cabrera for Jared Weaver?

    C: Castro
    1B: Goldy
    2B: Cano
    3B: Zim
    SS: Franklin

    SP: Felix, J-Z, Bumgarner, Greinke, Latos, Cole, Kluber

    I know I don’t NEED Weaver, but I feel like this would be a solid trade.
    FA SS: Rutledge
    FA pitchers: Tillman, Lincecum, Garza, Dempster, Cahill, Lohse, Ogando, Nolasco, and Martin Perez

        Vegas makes it easier to get blocks of rooms and worst case scenario the razzballers can get lost in sin city…..and I can go see my aunt and uncle for a home cooked meal.

        with these hookers do I need to get one that’s cool if the cougar is in the room, or are we leaving our baggage at home?

        @Grey: guessing it’s not one of those things that he’ll magically get the job back in 2 weeks (even though manager kinda has been saying that) seeing how he’s been consistently terrible since june 12th (HA, day my trade went through for him, trade was made like 4 days earlier); but really even for all of june.

  99. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    opp’s come at me with fielder/hart/garza for my scherzer/cole. I told him i want nothing to do with hart, which is sort of what i said about reyes when he came with that last week (at the very minimum i don’t need steals, but really do need RBI’s). he has
    votto
    fielder (how he got both of those guys in a 16 teamer is pretty sick, but i got cutch/upton/goldy so…)
    phillips
    garza
    latos
    ryu
    He seems to have real interest in cole and def wants scherzer. I really could use votto or fielder. My SP are Cole/Scherzer/PeavyDL/Erasmo(up soon hopefully, worth stash in league with Fife as a top 4 streamer left out there)/Medlen/Kluber/Gee/Kendrick/Porcello/Milone/Bailey. I did tell him i wouldn’t move Scherzer for anybody short of a top 20 bat, which i’m guessing Fielder is under that currently, but not by much.
    My guess is 1.fielder for scherzer’s a no go, but for 2.votto doable.
    those 2 put together with possible
    3. scherzer/cole for 1 of ryu/garza and fielder
    are any of these doable, if so which is best? problem is in 26 man roster 16 team league a top pitcher isn’t really replaceable, but neither is votto.

    4. side note. am wondering how much more he values scherzer than latos and what i would have to add to scherzer/cole to get latos/fielder? Esp since Cole may lose job he seems pretty expendable.
    5. Is Reyes even worth throwing in here, i currently have aybar/rutledge. he already also has segura so he’s really happy to dump off reyes.
    Lotta stuff going on here. Trying to spitball it.

        3. scherzer/cole for 1 of garza/ryu and fielder

        4.what level of player (if opp seems to like Cole a lot) would need to be added to
        scherzer/cole to get latos/fielder
        5. I don’t want reyes enough to pay for him so screw this one.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          I’d take the hitter in all of them… Fielder first… 4. Depends what they need

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Grey: so you agree with Player rater that votto is now below fielder? Votto’s injury past a decent factor i’m thinking. Cool. I forgot to mention stats in this league are weird it’s a 7X6 with runs/rbi/steal/hr/total bases/avg/ with wins/losses/saves/k’s/era/whip. Also it’s a H2H. Player rater does have Scherzer both higher than those guys for season and for ROS. I’m guessing the fact that he’s a pitcher alone makes him more risky?
            1. assuming fielder’s still first even with total bases having to go votto’s way i still think i’m better off flipping cole as part to get back a SP with definite role (rumored Cole’s losing spot in month or less) for like Garza or Ryu (thinking Ryu’s better in that)

            If all of above is true and Fielder’s still worth more the optimal trade should be:
            scherzer/cole for 1 of Garza/Ryu and Fielder

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              I’d take Fielder

              • goodfold2 says:
                (link)

                @Grey: and ryu’s better than garza? or no? should have just spelled that out as separate question. he seems more willing to part with garza, but i’m betting will move either. The idea is to try to leverage both his Cole interest and the idea that Cole’s value could simply fall off cliff when Burnett and Wandy come back, all while getting Fielder and a decent SP with him. But Cole could be better than Garza and Ryu if he keeps job. Worried about gambling on that though, since what was once a good useful pitcher on roster becomes gaping, unfillable (with fife/saunders type, i guess) hole if Cole gets sent down.

    which out of
    blanco/mayberry/ransom/leonys for dropping Colvin’s 10 K’s out of last 17 at bats with no playing time. this would be for RBI bench bat, could platoon ransom if him. Just dropped Leonys for Arcia for steals he didn’t get last wed-sun. Just hit 2 homers now i think i should use waiver claim on him (6 out of 16). Probably should have dropped Colvin last week and either kept 2 out of arcia/dominguez/leonys, but leonys only had a few singles when i had him.

      Leonys over Colvin

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Grey: i forgot, you can’t put in claim on your own dropped player. Will have to wait till waiver periods over late tomorrow night. Probably better off not having used 6th out of 16 claim. If somebody snakes him away, should i grab matt adams (playing everyday as DH for this week), blanco/ransom (could platoon)/mayberry jr/. weakest in rbi/avg/hr, strongest in runs/steals, so i kinda need non blanco stats.

        • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
          (link)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: except we also have total bases as a cat and i’m weak in those as well. blanco does somehow have almost the same amount of runs/rbis and a good total being on that offense. So i’m thinking adams till no longer a starter (week) then blanco, or one of the others.

    Is Schierholz worth a flier? He doesn’t play everyday I believe, but he just belted his 11th HR of the season and is hitting a cool .299.

    Ps: Thanks for the Arenado recommendation. I have no bench in a league that I DLed Braun an have an OF of A Jax J Upside A Jones and UTIL spots of Cuddyer and Rendon. He has hit me two homers in the last couple of days with a great AVG, and this isn’t even at Coors, that heat must be doing the trick. So you think he could be top 5 by next year?

    Looking to trade Jeff Locke before his WHIP catches up to his ERA. What tier of starter/hitter should I look for?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Maybe a Rollins type, struggling hitter…

        @Grey: congrats to Mark Ellis on your 4th HR of 2013! You now have twice as many HR as Matt Kemp in 25 fewer ABs.

    I got offered Prince and heyward, for my bourn, myers, cole, and shields…

    i could afford losing the pitching and need the bats… it would probably be a done deal if i didnt have to give myers as well… what do you think worth it?

    id have scherzer, zimmerman, liriano, gallardo,sanchez, kluber, wheeler, and beachy left…

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d take Prince/Heyward

    I am in an 11 team league. 5 keepers each plus a free last rd keeper if we keep him all year. I took Bundy in the last round. Is it worth it to stash him and waste a roster spot in hopes he is a top 75 guy in ’15 or ’16 or is it time to cut bait? Would free up a roster spot.

    Thanks man

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Cut bait once it’s announced he needs surgery, not yet

    milone is seriously maddening. how does this guy occasionally K a decent amount of people? after posting like 2 or 3 good/great ROAD games in a row, now he’s yanked 1 out short of what should have been easy win with an over 2 whip. All of my pitchers (not so medlen) are terrible with K’s today. Porcello, Milone, kendrick all with only 2.

  162. Alex says:
    (link)

    Since when was Tommy Milone a walk machine?

    Gotta go Gibson and Lohse over him ROS right?

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @Alex: exactly, he’s supposed to be, if nothing else, a lack of walk machine.

    • Jack Full of Hate says:

      @Alex: why are we talking ROS for fringe arms?

      Depends on matchups for all of them

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: i get 5 pickups per week, but it’s 16 team land where any SP who puts up 3 good games in a row, or even 3 out of 5 if benched properly, is much better to hold or bench for awhile than just running out fife/bonderman/saunders and the like. Guys like Milone/Kendrick/Niese (when healthy)/Gee (4 starts in a row)/ aren’t just throw and catch, unless you are also way ahead of the curve when it comes to prospects coming up. Wheeler/Wacha/Gausman were all stashed guys, but i got Cole and Cingrani like 3 days their first starts. Now i may be able to trade for solid SP value for Cole from somebody who isn’t sure about him being demoted.
        I was actually trying to get into a bunch of leagues ($) right before season on cbs message boards (they have a LOT of different league types on there) but most of them had pickup maxes for the year. I won’t do those. Luck wins out way too much in those; both of the injury kind, and of which prospects pan out and which don’t.

      @SteveNZ: Prospects for this H2H week aren’t good if he’s hitting home runs.

    Does Kenley get wheeled out for a 4th straight day here?

    • SteveNZ says:

      @SteveNZ: Belisario out for the 8th – pointing to League in the 9th perhaps?

    wake the dog, or something, as robbie erlin appears as the best open streamer for rest of week now. incognito fausto carmona also has high rating
    which of these are best. it really can’t get much worse when you get terrible k’s/whip/and era at same time. who to drop for this person(s) out of tazawa/milone/porcello. was intending to keep tazawa just to make sure ueheara holds job, but can’t yet bring myself to throw away SP’s who HAD been very useful until recently, due to complete lack on waivers. Starting to look like simply owning blanton is way to go.

    erlin vs PHI
    Fausto vs TOR
    Gomez at SEA
    Blanton at HOU

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Can drop all three… Erlin, Blanton, Gomez…

      • jason batteiger says:
        (link)

        @Grey: i only will have 2 pickups, but you’re saying to actually throw away and hold onto erlin and blanton until further notice (by further notice i mean a better situation or good call up pitcher). so which stays, Milone, or Tazawa in case Ueheara fails early on? thanks grey

        • jason batteiger says:
          (link)

          @jason batteiger: this is 16 teamer with 26 man rosters so could be scary floating around with 2 stream spots,except blanton actually has been better than portabello/milstone.

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Not on the road for Blanton

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Hold Milone and Porcello then and lose Tazawa for Erlin…

          • jason batteiger says:
            (link)

            @Grey: grabbed erlin but forgot that tomorrow’s cut off for SP is 12:30 AM central, so his stats won’t count. That’s what i get for making food, at this exact time. If he’s any good i’ll just keep him. I hodge’d the padre’s a lot last year. (eh stults, so useful, (not like this year, where’s he’s out of his mind) so unknown to others)

            • jason batteiger says:
              (link)

              @jason batteiger: blanton’s actually been good in 5 out of his last 6, and 2 of those were road games. Might drop Porcello for his Hou road start in a few days, if erlin doesn’t suck. Maybe i’ll get lucky and Smyly (who i’ve owned at least 5 times in this league until most of my SP turned fairly stable) turns starter.

              • jason batteiger says:
                (link)

                @jason batteiger: man i’m doubley stupid as apparently i did get it in time, just seemed like i didn’t. well that’s nice, so now i’ll get the stats out of the pitcher like i deserve, for good or ill………

    Drop cole or wheeler for erasmo?

    Leonys and schierhotlz on waivers. Drop Rutledge or Aviles for either? Currently rotating those two at SS as I await tulos return.

      @Giac: aviles

      • Giac says:
        (link)

        Thanks. Would u go with leonys or schierhotlz though?
        And what about dropping cole or wheeler for erasmo?

          @Giac: I like leony’s, schierholtz is going to be traded soon, i hear

      @Giac: cole will get bumped out of rotation when Pirates SP’s get healthy, I hope that helps, your call

        just between you and me ,

    Geez,Mattingly is an idiot.If the rumors of him taking over the Nats next year come close to being true,I’ll have to reacquaint myself with some old biker friends to prevent that from happening.

    I mean,wasn’t this fact about League sucking so bad he should be flipping burgers already established?

    anybody (pretty sure nobody cares until he does this kinda thing like another 4 out of 5 times, at least close to it) see that, in a completely useless situation, wilhelmsen pulled a Kimbrel.
