Joining Paul Hollywood at The Great Britton’s Brach Off is Orioles’ manager, Buck Showalter.  Showalter said, “Craig Gentry (2-for-5, 3 RBIs) hit a home run with his leadoff Battenberg cake even if it is missing the mark on OBP, but I love its moistness, and I apologize for using the word moist.”  Trey Mancini (3-for-5, 4 RBIs, and his 3rd and 4th homers) was crowned this week’s Star Baker, beating out Mark Trumbo (2-for-5, 1 run), who was in the cleanup spot, saying, “Why do these people have to use so many pots and pans?”  The Great Britton’s Brach Off didn’t end without losing one baketestant.  Zach Britton over-whisked his meringue and left with a forearm strain.  The Brits are calling it, Zaxit.  So, Britton will be out for at least ten days with Brad Brach filling in, behind Brach will be Darren O’Day, who sounds too IRA to me, then behind him will be Mychal Givens, who is Mike Tyson and Robin Givens’ child.  Buck Showalter said he hopes Britton will be ready in ten days, but forearm strains don’t work that way, so you should grab Brach, at least.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:

Dylan Bundy – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 1.86.  Better than he’s ever been in the majors?  Yes, without a doubt.  Looking at his peripherals left me feeling less inspired than I thought they would.  His velocity is down and his K/9 is below 8.  What has really corrected itself is his command, so far his BB/9 is 1.4.  I’d absolutely own him, but I thought I was gonna be crazy for him after what he did in Toronto, and I’m much closer to meh.  Meh adjacent?

Aaron Sanchez – Hit the DL with a blister.  Did Rich Hill sneeze on him?

J.A. Happ – Left the game with a sore elbow.  Jays already had questionable starter depth, and now they’re looking at Brett “Ken” Oberholtzer, Mike “The New Hanes” Bolsinger, Mat “Dallas” Latos.

Kevin Pillar – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer, as he hit leadoff.  With Devon Travis in the doghouse — what do they call a doghouse in Canada?  The Doug house?  As in Doug McKenzie? — Pillar might get a longer look at leadoff.

Brandon Finnegan – Hit the Disgraceful List.  That was the quickest turnaround from good to bad since the first episode of 13 Reasons Why to every other episode of 13 Reasons Why.  “This is promising.”  *next start*  “Wow, this is a mess.”  The Reds said he has a left lat strain, but he looked healthy, just less efficient than a Toyota Tundra.  As for 13 Reasons Why, someone get this kid Neosporin, he’s had a scab on his forehead for months!

Sal Romano – 3 IP, 2 ER in his major league debut.  As frequent commenter, Frank Grimes said, “Romano got pepper jacked.”

Eugenio Suarez – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs, and his 3rd homer, hitting .364.  Hot schmotato alert!

Raisel Iglesias – Bryan Price, between expletives, said that he would try to avoid pitching his relievers on back-to-back games, and would use anyone from Iglesias, Storen to Lorenzen as the closer.  Not ideal for fantasy, which is all we care about so I have some expletives for Price.

Eric Thames – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 6th homer, and his fifth homer in the last four games, hitting .368.  I said I’m geeked and I’m fired up!  Two weeks ago, I was glad I only drafted Thames in one league, now I’m like, “Damn, Steamer nailed those projections and why can’t I own Thames in every league?”  It’s easy to outthink major league managers, but Thames really should be playing every day.

Travis Shaw – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer, hitting .217.  It’s early still, but he’s on pace for his usual yawnstipating season.  Pshaw.

Wily Peralta – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 1 K, ERA at 2.65.  I saw Rotoworld suggested Peralta be owned in all mixed leagues, and I was like, “When did JB start writing for Rotoworld?  That guy is moonlighting!”  Would it shock you to know Peralta’s xFIP is almost two runs higher than his ERA?  It shouldn’t, unless you’ve been in a coma for the last five years, and, if you have been in a coma for that long, Wily Peralta is the least of your concerns, no?

Gio Gonzalez – 7 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 1.77 vs. Jerad Eickhoff – 6 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.75.  This was a matchup of two starters who no one was excited about owning in March, but now I wish I owned them over all the starters on all of my teams.

Cesar Hernandez – 3-for-4, 2 runs and a slam (3) and legs (1), and 2nd homer in as many games.  I dropped a verse in my Buy about Cesar.  Soigné.

Joaquin Benoit – 2/3 IP, 3 ER and his 1st blown save.  The Phils’ closer job is polluted!  It took Pete Macktheknife 14 months to remove Jeanmar, so I doubt Benoit is gone after one, but I do own Pat Neshek in one very deep league.  Cust kayin’.

Blake Treinen – 2/3 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 6.00.  I don’t know if this is Dusty Baker’s intention, because, frankly, I’m not sure if Dusty knows his own intentions, but he is really setting Treinen up to fail.  I wouldn’t drop Glover or Kelley just yet.

Bryce Harper – 3-for-5, 5 RBIs and his 3rd and 4th homer, hitting .333.  A video of Harper’s game-winning homer was sent to all 29 other teams by Scott Boras.  The Phils declined saying, “It was against us, you jackass!”

Adam Eaton – 3-for-5, 2 runs, hitting .326. Without intending to, I drafted Eaton in a few leagues, and have been enjoying it thus far.  I guess I’m *pinkie to mouth* Eaton my words.

Carlos Martinez – 5 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 12 baserunners (8 BBs), 11 Ks, ERA at 3.57.  Juicy gotcha crazy!  Holy schnikeballs, that’s an ugly line by C-Mart.  Tied to the WHIPping post and shooting BBs like the game should’ve been broadcast in fast motion and black and white while having title cards for the dialogue.

Greg Bird – 3-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .138.  Bird is due to come alive, he is better than this.  But I shouldn’t pigeonhole him.  Badum-tish!

Aaron Hicks – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .318 in limited duty.  Hehe, I said duty.  Hicks should be a regular but the Yanks like to hang onto fading vets, so I’m not sure if he’ll ever see the ABs.

Michael Pineda – 7 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.44.  Look at Pineda not doing a crazy good or a crazy bad game, just a run-of-the-mill Quality Start.  So mature he’d pronounce it ma-toor.

Jake Odorizzi – Hit the DL with a strained hamstring.  Odorizzi said of his hammy, “From now on, extra holidays off.  I’m talking a break, fast.”

Corey Dickerson – 2-for-4, and his 3rd homer, hitting .333.  Someone inconceivably dropped him in my league–Oh, forget it, it was Tehol.

Chris Sale – 7 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 1.25.  The moral of the story is all starters that change teams to the Red Sox don’t become David Price, even if Sale and Price seemed inherently tied.   And with that said…

Drew Pomeranz – 4 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 5.23.  I bet when Pomeranz was actually pitching well in San Diego he was owned in less leagues than he is now.  There’s an ESPN article from a few days ago that starts, “ESPN’s Klara Bell analyzes how Pomeranz would fit on your fantasy roster as the season ramps up.”  I’m not an ESPN Insider, so I don’t know what Klara Bell says, but here’s what it should say, “(Pomeranz) had a 6.43 ERA in Fenway last year and a 4.59 ERA in the 2nd half, you are effin’ crazy to own him in mixed leagues.”

Mitch Moreland – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer on Saturday, hitting .356.  Why don’t I have a team with Moreland and Haniger that I can name, I Got Mitches In Different Area Codes?

Justin Verlander – 4 IP, 9 ER, ERA at 5.71.  After this disastrous game, Kate Upton said the only ‘B.J. Upton’ he’s getting is by reaching out to Melvin.

Miguel Cabrera – Left yesterday’s game after his back stiffened up.  Miggy said it’s no biggie and likes his chicken extra rosemary spriggy.

Alex Avila – 2-for-2, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  Tigers’ catcher position: 5 HRs; Red Sox team: 6 HRs with three from Sandoval.  That’s your cue to laugh to yourself like a madman.

Tyler Glasnow – 5 IP, 4 ER, 8 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 12.15.  Before this game, pitching coach extraordinaire, Ray Searage said Glasnow would be debuting a new delivery.  After the game, Searage said privately to Glasnow, “As Vincent Gallo said in Buffalo 66, ‘If you make me look bad, I will never ever talk to you again.  Ever.’  Now get out of here, and be thankful I’m not quoting The Brown Bunny!”

Adam Frazier – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .343.  Palindromic!  Though, since he was playing left field, it’s more like Pol-anemic-o.  Please don’t give C**nt Hurdle a reason to bench Polanco.  Please.

Jameson Taillon – 7 IP, 0 ER, 10 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 0.90.  I love how ESPN and other big-box sites make this game about Jon Lester and his 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 1.00.  Jameson Taillon is standing at the unveiling of the Rocky statue, screaming if Adrian wants to know a real man she needs to hook up with him while Lester is Rocky.

Jake Arrieta – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.89.  He had a 1.00 ERA last April, and fell apart slowly as the season unwound.  If he’s not good in April, God help his owners in the 2nd half this year.  By the way, Cervelli homered off him.  That’s three-homer power, Cervelli.

Jarrett Parker – Out with a broken collarbone.  Parker seems to have reverse Lou Gehrig’s.  Every time he gets a starting job, he gets hurt.  *intern whispers in ear*  No, I mean, “Lou Gehrig’s” as in took Wally Pipp’s job and played every day for 15 seasons.  Any hoo!  Taking over for Parker will be some combination of Chris Marrero, Gorkys Hernandez and Melvin Upton, which goes by the moniker, Morky Herupto, which is as awful as it sounds outside of NL-Only leagues.

Jeff Samardzija – 7 IP, 4 ER, 8 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 6.16, or, as fantasy baseball cartoons write expletives, Sam&^@!#*!zija vs.  Antonio Senzatela – 7 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.37.  I started Sam&^@!#*!zija and Senzatela on the same team and when they combined for seven runs after seven outs, I began to write my will.  “Hmm…Who do I leave the Gregg Jefferies rookie card?  That’s gotta go to Scott Kimmel…”  Then they righted the ship, but it still felt like a bad day to quit barbiturates.

Tyler Chatwood – 9 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.54.  Whoa.  That’s worth looking deeper into.  *looks at his peripherals, looks at his next start on the Stream-o-Nator*  Hmm, okay, moving on.

Tyler Skaggs – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 5.19 vs. Ian Kennedy 8 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 2.37.  Gorgeous game from two starters or “Are the Angels and Royals the worst hitting teams in baseball?”  A sprinkling of both, presumably.  Looking at both of their peripherals, Skaggs is more interesting of the two, but, in most mixed leagues, it’s still too early to trust either.

Shin-Soo Choo – 2-for-3, 5 RBIs and his 1st homer.  All aboard the Soo Choo train!

Nomar Mazara – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 4th homer.  Mazuzah!

Sam Dyson – 1/3 IP, 2 ER, and the blown save, as his ERA moves to 27.00.  You know who I feel really bad about?  The guy Dyson got out.  How embarrassing!  My guess is Matt Bush is the closer for the Rangers next game, but I think Jeff Banister could’ve used himself to close games and it would’ve turned out better, but there Dyson was once again like a bad yeast infection.  Get Bush and Monistat 7!  Hmm, that went to a weird place.  Jeremy Jeffress could also be named closer.  Hard to say which way he goes when previously he went to Dyson hideous game after hideous game.

Mitch Haniger – 1-for-3, 4 RBIs and his 4th homer.  I legit just gave you an entire Buy dedicated to one man (not entirely, but you get the general gist, which was also my high school band name.  General Gist rocks!  Vaguely!).

Hisashi Iwakuma – 3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 5.40.  Burp BURP!  I told you not to draft Hisashi; Hisashi is now telling you the same.

James Paxton – 8 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 0.00.  As one of our two female writers (we almost have as many working females as Mad Men’s offices!), VictoriaB pointed out on Saturday, Paques is French for Easter, so here’s Pax owning Paques weekend:

Ervin Santana – 9 IP, 0 ER, 2 baserunners (1 Hit), 8 Ks, ERA at 0.41, moving his record to 3-0.  …And your American League All-Star Game starter is…Ervin Santana!  So far this year, he’s allowed five hits and one run in 22 IP.  ERA leaders since July 1st of last year:  Verlander (1.91; prior to Saturday’s start), Hendricks (1.97), Ervin (2.08 ERA), Syndergaard (2.40), Scherzer (2.56).

Jose Quintana – 5 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 6.75.  Universe finally accepts Quintana as a number two starter for fantasy.  Quintana flips off universe.

James Shields – 6 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 1.62 vs. Hector Santiago – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, EAR at 1.47.  I don’t know why Quintana looked like Mr. Bungle on Saturday, but the White Sox vs. the Twins was not the dream meeting of the 1927 Yankees vs. the 2016 Cubs.

Avisail Garcia – 4-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .465.  For years I’ve remarked — I’m a remarker, yo! — that Avisail looks like Mini Miggy, now he’s actually hitting like him.

Jacob deGrom – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 13 Ks, ERA at 1.89.  I promise never to say another bad thing about deGrom.  I’d roll my eye rolls, but the italics make it look like I’m making fun of Asians. Thanks for refraining, Random Italicized Voice.

Matt Harvey – 6 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.45.  A right bestowed on me by the Fantasy Baseball College of Charleston:  I reserve the right to judge all Mets starters by their ability to still be healthy in August.

Addison Reed – 2/3 IP, 2 ER.  Terry Collins said Jeurys Familia could be eased back into the closer role, making earlier appearances in a couple of games.  Collins supposedly wants to reacclimate Familia.  Good luck, seems like no matter the climate Familia is hot-headed.

Dan Straily – 5 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 Walks, No Hits, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.61.  Without looking it up, I’m going to say more pitchers this past weekend threw games giving up more walks than hits than any other weekend in baseball history.  Maybe it was due to Easter, and MLB celebrating it by kicking off pregame ceremonies with Kanye’s Jesus Walks.

Tyler Flowers – Left yesterday’s game with a tweaked hamstring.  Knew I shouldn’t have done that dynasty league trade of Flowers for Al Gernon.

Ender Inciarte – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 4th homer in his last 14 at-bats.  Ender’s on pace for 59 homers, which would be the ninth best total for a season.  Or 2nd best home run total if you don’t count the time Bud Selig’s toupee shrouded most of baseball.

Brandon Phillips – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs, hitting .333, and a home run on Saturday.  What do you get when a hot schmotato meets a Zombino?  Zombtato?  Hmm, sounds like a dance class for Cougars.

Bartolo Colon – 7 IP, 1 ER, 2 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.24.  Stream-o-Nator liked that start, but is thinking you need to do a Colon cleanse before his next.

Ryan Schimpf – 1-for-2, 2 runs and his 3rd homer, hitting .152.  –pf bangs!

Taijuan Walker – 5 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.94.  I like Walker, but I don’t own him, so I’m surprised to see how well he’s doing.  You’d think he had a 7+ ERA considering how many questions I get about dropping him.  What exactly do people expect of him?  He has a 9 K/9 and an under-4 ERA.

Rich Hill – Left yesterday’s start in the third inning with an injury.  I’ll give you one guess what the problem is.  In related news, Rich Hill started a cover band called, Mr. Blister, and their smash hit, Broken Flings.  “Take these broken fingers and learn to pitch again…”

Kenta Maeda – 4 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 7.07.  Okay, time to have a small panic attack.  Not only does Maeda look lost, but the L.A. Times reported his velocity dropped from 94 to 90 by the 2nd inning.  I wouldn’t drop him yet, but I would bench him for a start.

Logan Forsythe – Out with hamstring tightness, but expects to be back on Monday.  That Logan has good Forsythe.

Ken Giles – Pitched the 8th inning on Saturday while Gregerson was held until the ninth for a save, which became a non-save situation by the time the A’s bullpen got done coughing up runs.   A.J. Hinch said he just wanted his best reliever in the game at the right time, or as my autocorrect astutely pointed out, the Astros had an A.J. Hunch.

Sean Manaea – 5 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners (zero hits), 6 Ks, ERA at 5.51.  Between Manaea, Straily, C-Mart and Finnegan, the weekend seemed sponsored by Daniel Cabrera.

Marcus Semien – Hit the DL with a sore wrist.  Wondering how Semien made his wrist sore is like being surprised that someone by the name of Weiner sexts pics of his penis.

    Excellent write-up, man!

    a. ‘Member F5=Donaldson and E5=Encarnacion? We need some other similar names.

    b. Loved the Smardzija (dropped before this start and forever more!), Dyson and Paxton blurbs!!! if the Shark can’t win in SF versus the Rox, where can he win? That was a hypothetical question, but if anyone has an answer feel free to reply!

    c. Enjoying the trip to Lisbon. We’re going to Sintra today, saw Oceanarium yesterday. The latter gets 2/5 – they have one LARGE aquarium that can be viewed from two different sides and on three different levels/floors. People were like, wow look! And I’m like, really?

    John Rambo Quote of the day for April 17

    [Scene change, in the station, Rambo is ridiculed by everyone]
    Officer: ‘Well, what do we have here, huh? What would you be carrying a knife like this for?’
    Rambo: ‘Hunting.’
    Officer: ‘Don’t be a wise guy! What do you hunt with a knife?’
    Rambo: ‘Name it.’
    [more BS police talk]
    Officer: ‘Hey, talk about your sorry looking humanity!’
    Sheriff: ‘Just another smartass drifter. I want you to book this gentleman for vagrancy, resisting arrest, carrying a concealed weapon.’
    Officer: ‘He says he uses it for hunting.’
    Sheriff: ‘Huntin’? What do you hunt, elephants? See if you can clean him up a little. He smells like an animal!’

    Cheers,
    Ante

    I own treinen. He is making me more nervous with every pitch he throws. I have spot to carry one player with Sanchez on the DL. Who is the best hedge: Kelley or Glover? I’m sure I’ll pick the wrong dude like always (Neris). BTW, Brach was added literally a second after Britton went on the DL. Bush & Jeffress are owned. Kelly & Glover are still FA’s. Which one would you add? I go back to the durability comments about Kelly but he has been in games after Glover pitches, but I go back to Neris and Benoit was the 7th inning guy there. Thanks

      @What’s A Drexl?: or i could hold a.wood now that he’s likely starting again. and seriously, can we get some kind of DNA test on hill’s skin? how come NOT ONE OTHER PITCHER I’VE EVER HEARD OF has had “blister” issues like this. i know he’s in general an injury prone guy true, but MF’ing BLISTERS! this guy seriously has an inverse wolverine healing factor going on here.

  11. What's A Drexl? says:

    oh yeah, the they already started having thames against lefties, at least once this weekend he played against one of them. also, we’re now 3 games past his supposed yahoo “limits” and there’s a large post about this in some yahoo message board that i’m sure isn’t read by anybody that actually “works” at yahoo.

      • What's A Drexl? says:

        @Grey: yahoo finally gave thames 1B. it took 8 starts. not quite as bad as swihart’s 10 or 11 last year. so we’ve finally entered the nice territory

    I have 3 DL spots and have Trea, Britton, Didi, Jon Gray and Finnegan. Which two do I drop?

    • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
      (link)

      @Wywyz: no way treat urner or britton are one of the drops for sure. which 2 of the remainder probably has to do with depth of league and what remaining SP/MI guys are available. if points league didi is first gone for sure.

  13. Mantis Toboggan MD says:
    (link)

    never a good day to quit barbs, and since he doesn’t read the posts actually using his name in the posts is hilarious as shit. wow, hadn’t noticed schimpf’s batting avg that low due to his BB being so damn good and i’m no longer in any AVG leagues (also only have schimpf in like 2 leagues)

  14. Matt says:
    (link)

    Traded Donaldson for Rendon straight up. Hope I didn’t sell too low on him because Rendon hasn’t exactly been tearing the cover off the ball. The Jays look putrid though.

    Would you pick up Kepler and drop Dickerson? Kepler as picked it up a little bit. Don’t want it to bite me later since I drafted him everywhere and he was so highly ranked pre-season.

    I hope Maeda can find the velocity again and its just a bad 3 game stretch. Yikes. Arizona next..definitely sitting.

    Wild weekend! Owning all of rich hill trienen and Benoit for that game last night was pretty rough!

    Speaking of Rich Hill, would you trade him for a lower ranked SP who’s doing better in the realm of Ervin Santana etc?

    As a Maeda owner in two other leagues, would you be trading him for $0.50 on the dollar?

        @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Where are they getting these 94 mph readings from? According to fangraphs, his velocity is up from last year…

        • The Great Knoche says:
          (link)

          @Longbeachyo: They changed how velocity is measured. Everyone should be up 3-4MPH this year just based on how they are calculating it now.

            @The Great Knoche: Where are you getting 3-4 MPH from? I have read it is about 1 MPH.

            • The great knoche says:
              (link)

              @LenFuego: you are correct. original estimate on change in measurement to stat cast from pitchers hand was 3 MPH versus old gun at plate. Thus far fangraphs and others have measured it and estimates anywhere from .6 to1.8 mph increase so not quite as drastic.

    So much news to cover Grey and you did it marvelously. Bravo!
    In a 12 team h2h 10×10 league Bregman or Moustakiss for ROS? Would u trade Trumbo straight up for Mouse if your current OF was KhrisD, Thames, Haniger, Renfroe with Dahl on the DL?
    Treinen, Bush or Neris ROS? Thanks!

    Great write up Grey! Another player (Jon Gray) hit the DL for me this week, thats 7 in the first 2 weeks. I did get Hill back, but of course that blister. How does he not have a callus on that finger yet? It looks like Bradley Jr. and Trea Turner are coming back this week so that a plus for me, although I have to figure out who to drop now.

    Reynolds (great start, but Desmond should be back shortly)
    Renfroe (that OBP, yuck)
    Rendon (terrible start, can replace with Villar when Turner becomes SS eligible)

    Who’s the definite drop? Who else if you wouldn’t want to carry an extra bench bat?

    • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
      (link)

      @Sean Smith: if it’s obp then I get renfroe, but what’s the wire like for pitching? Gray is out at least a month with something that could mess with his delivery until he’s completely healed + it’s not like he’s Kershaw. The other guys you listed have more minor stuff.

      • Sean Smith says:
        (link)

        @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Waivers are mostly a bunch of junk with a few low end streamers like Dickey, Bauer, and Perlta. I’m pretty decent at streaming and identifying bargains based on peripherals. The rest of my rotation is Darvish, Cuetor, Pineda, Leake, Walker, and Miller (2 start stream). OF is Bradley Jr., Cespedes, Renfroe, Haniger, Turner, and Dahl (DL).

        • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
          (link)

          @Sean Smith: So maybe it’s worth holding Gray, but it’s possible he comes back and does a 2016 Taijuan IMO. Reynolds is probably your guy, maybe Renfroe if it’s OBP – but Reynolds won’t have a job in a few weeks (Renfroe is there all season).

          • Sean Smith says:
            (link)

            @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: thanks was leaning towards reynolds too because of that, but I eventually will have to make another move as more players come off the DL. I was able to move Gray to a DL spot. Hill’s situation on going to make it much more complicated.

    Not as concerned about Maeda velocity (FanGraphs has him up 1-1.5mph on all of his pitches this year versus last year, and his avg fastball velocity has sat 91.2, 91.4, 91.3 each game). I think I’m more concerned with Dave Roberts. His leash on Maeda is shorter than a Ronda Rousey fight:
    5 IP – 75 pitches
    5 IP – 83 pitches
    4 IP – 71 pitches

    Against Arizona, the damage was all done on a 3-R Nick Ahmed HR.

    11 of Maeda’s 19 baserunners have come around to score. His BABIP sits at .308 (versus last year’s .283), his LOB% sits at 54.1% (versus last year’s 75.6%), and his HR/9 at 1.93 (versus last years 1.02). Those can all change.

    What is unlikely to change, however, is the manager. The Dodgers right now average 5.3 IP/GS, 26th in MLB and above only MIL, PHI, MIA, CIN. As a sign of consistency, the Dodgers also averaged 5.3 IP/GS in 2016, which ranked 29th in MLB (above only PIT). Last year, Maeda averaged just 5.5 IP/GS DESPITE solid WHIP and ERA numbers.

    As a result, we have a pitcher who’s made a couple of mistakes in a limited sample – HRs have accounted for 6 of his 11 ER. He could absolutely still turn things around with the LOB%, BABIP, and HR/9. The biggest problem is going to be Dave Roberts. Maeda’s short leash is going to amplify every mistake he makes. Look at Samardzija and Senzatela for comparison yesterday — 2IP 4ER and 1IP 3ER turned into 7IP 4ER and 7IP 3ER. Maeda does not have that opportnity, and that is why I’m frantically looking to sell him for dimes on the dollar.

    • Longbeachyo says:
      (link)

      @Matt: thank you matt. Don’t forget maeda’s swinging strike percentage is up 2.4%! I’m waiting for maeda to have a good game, then I’ll make some offers to the dodger homers in my league.

    So these are the guys on my team who are drop candidates: Buxton, Renfroe, Margot, Snell

    These are some free agents I’m thinking of picking up: Dickerson, Kepler, Jimmy Nelson, Chase Anderson, and Knebel (for holds – may lose Bush as my holds guy if they make him closer, leaving me with one holds guy);

    Any add drops you recommend with these options? Its and AVG and OBP league, and counts Saves and Holds. The hitters I listed would be for bench spots.

    Hey! I asked Phil yesterday but thought I’d run it by this crowd. I was offered Eduardo Nunez for either Taijuan Walker or Pineda (12 team mixed). I’ve been starting Semien at ss, haves roster that’s a bit light on speed.

    My staff currently consists of:
    Kershaw, deGrom, Manaea, Walker, Pineda, Moore, Norris, Shelby Miller, Ryu and Rodon (DL)

    Nunez’ s speed worth one of those guys? Or drop Semien (DL is super full) pick up a short-term replacement and hope his wrist/hand isn’t too bad?

    Thanks!

    Great stuff as usual. So I am light in the pitching department (losing A Sanchez and Finnegan did not help). Thinking of offering either A. Rendon or J. Turner for Danny Salazar (owner has Reyes and Sandoval at 3B, so either would be an upgrade for him). Is it fair? Would I be getting enough? He has Cueto, Hamels and Bundy too. Thanks!

  90. Chris D says:
    (link)

    I’m new to this site and fantasy baseball (long time admirer, first time player) but I am loving both. Playing in a dynasty league with a team I inherited that was god awful to start but am pretty proud of after rebuilding through our FA draft a month ago (currently sit in second place in this early season with some strong numbers and guys who should keep me near the top)

    I added Dexter Fowler at start of year but his early struggles are worrisome. Is he worth dropping for Haniger? Our rule is basically to drop and add a guy from FA to roster I would have to pay $6 in real cash (which is fine, but can get pricey if done a lot). Pay period however is free on last day of a month and first two days a of a month. Just wondering if Haniger is a guy to target in a dynasty league and if so, is Folwer a smart drop for him.

    second part to that question is if I should drop Fowler, should I ride it out and hope no one snags Haniger or make a move now and pay $6.

    Thanks for any help from anyone.

    • Grey

        @Grey: Thank you for the quick response! He is probably my weakest outfield piece, at least based of early season returns.

        Khris Davis
        Adam Eaton

          Grey says:

          Holliday’s garbage, but if you need him for 1B then Fowler is your weakest, yeah

          • Chris D says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Thanks Grey, yea my 1b options were slim picking to start the year. Holliday was a FA grab. Other 1b options I currently own are Gyorko (I like the multiple position eligibility) and Brad Miller who I am running out at SS but use from time to time at 1b. Unfortunately I have to burn two roster spots because of rule 5 picks I used on Brendan Rodgers and AJ Reed (who I am hoping is the answer to my problem later in year) and have to roster a few weaker guys and hope for their last year upside.

    Also, any concern over Cole Hamels? Through 18 innings, 5.50 FIP, has lost a mph on all his pitches, 6.6% swinging strike rate (12% career). Those are major red flags.

    It’s obviously early…I’m trying not to overreact…but…if your team hits below the Mendoza line 2/3 through the week…I’m just a little pissed…with good players…you’ve almost have to be trying to hit this poorly…

    1) My CI slot has Ryon Healy…the more I read about this guy…the more I wonder why I took him in the auction…should I replace him with Cesar Hernandez (I can move Murphy into my CI slot) and put him into MI?…or wait and see?
    Ok…

    2) Carols Gomez is in my UT slot…replace with Avisail Garcia?

    Rosenthal was dropped the other day. I have the #5 waiver pick. Worth using it in the hope he reclaims closer duties? I could really use a potential closer, and I know guys below me will user their WP.

    It takes 1-2 years to get in the top 2-3 waiver spots in our league. I’d probably be back to #5 by the end of this year if I went for him and have to wait till next year for the chance of a game changing player coming over from the AL.

    Thanks!

    I’m now sitting 8th in a 10 team ROTO league (OBP , HDs count). I dropped Bird and picked up C. Hernandez before yesterday’s games, which turned out alright… I was hoping Bird would start hot, then make a trade to move Hosmer for a pitcher.

    1. Do you see any moves I should target at this point? I’m reading here about people trying to move Maeda and/or Hill.

    2. Should I drop a pitcher and pick up a FA bat to stash Available: Moreland, Duda, Conforto, Avisail, Manchini?

    3. Are there better starters available than who I’m rostering? Available: Severino, Triggs, Cobb, Senzatela, Peralta

    4. Am I waiting on the right relievers to get their sh** together? Available: Kelley, Doolittle, Treinen (just dropped him)

    C – Wieters
    1B – Hosmer
    2B – C. Hernandez
    3B – Rendon
    2B / SS- Story
    1B / 3B – C. Santana
    OF Trout, Cruz, Braun, Duvall,
    UTIL – Trout
    UTIL – Piscotty
    Bench – Peraza (usually in the lineup, ready for him to be 2B eligible)

    SP, Maeda, McCullers, Hill, Nova, Bundy, Cotton, Manaea, Ross,
    RP Giles, Bush, Benoit

    DL Price
    DL Segura

    Thanks in advance for taking a look.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      1. MAeda might be hurt, Hill is hurt…. 2. Trade to upgrade…. Hosmer and Maeda for Salazar then just pick up Moreland… Stuff like that 3. Severino better upside than Nova 4. Hold

    Let me get this straight… you rank Max Kepler #19 outfielder and Ender Inciarte #41 in the preseason, and after 2 weeks you are advising people to pick up Ender over Kepler?

    You’ve lost 21 spots of faith in Max in just 2 weeks!?

    • Grey

    2. Hold Vogt or drop for Gattis (limited moves)

    OBP league, and that’s the biggest place I need help. Limited pickups so likely stuck with player for year. Position doesn’t matter (Villar, Machado, and B Miller can all move around).

    Grey- Did you say you’d rather have Treinen over Bush/Neris for R.O.S. ? Own Treinen presently. You think he keeps closer job ? Otherwise why would you rather have Treinen ?
    I asked you last week if $100 bid of my $1,000 FAAB money at NFBC was about right for Inciarte. After he hit more home runs last week than all of last year, I knew $100 wouldn’t get the job done. I really like him, so I bid $202. Winning bid $479/Runner up $444. haha

    Last but not least, hope I’m not too late for a question !!

    H2h pts league with weekly roster lock. Drop Javier Baez to stash moncada?

    I don’t need javy Baez he’s been subplanted on my bench:

    Next , I have Pablo Sandoval hold onto him or drop for one of these:
    Solarte (2b/3b), nick castellanos, Cesar Hernandez (2b), availsail garcia (OF/DH), matt Davidson (DH) but maybe as insurance for Frazier? I have Frazier & he hasn’t been too good. There’s also hunter pence, chase headley, Joey gallow. And Chris owings (OF/SS)

    Thanks grey!!

    Late to the game today! Great stuff on the weekend round up. Thanks to Razzball and all of its writers I’ve put together a pretty solid dynasty team in a 10 team points league.

    That being said, I still pretty well use a SAGNOF approach. We can have 4 RPs in our lineup every day. My current RPs are T Watson, E Diaz, M. Melancon and Jim Johnson. We get 5 points per save and 4 points per Hold. This early in the year would you drop any of these guys for Brach? Even if he quickly turns back to a set up role, he’s still pretty valuable in that role for our league.

    Currently trying to trade of Diaz to a team that has showed some interest, but I’m not counting on it.

    Thanks Grey

    Treinen over Bush and Neris R.O.S., did I read that correctly ? Bid $200 on Inciarte, double on what I was going to bid as of last monday, but winning bid was $479, and runner up was $444. My bid was probably in the middle of the 15 guys in my league. I like him and would have loved having him; just not for 1/2 of my F.A. $1,000, after just 2 weeks.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Treinen is the closer right now, there’s no ROS for any of them really… Bush is my guess for Rangers closer but they could go to Jeremy Jefress

  152. Joe Ross is likely pitching for the Nats weds & beyond…I scooped him up this AM, hoping for 3 decent starts in 2 weeks and maybe a pretty ok season….

    Of the 2 MI I was carrying, I dropped Solarte instead of Chez Hernandez.

    Right call? Or will I kick myself for dropping the Pads #3/4 hitter? I need speed more than power, and runs more the RBI. Hernandez was good to me last year and he’s red hot right now. It’s a 10 team league and there’s a ton of MI out there so not sweating over it too much…

    Too late to do anything about it, but thoight I’d ask for your feedback.

      • @Grey: I’d better mark my calendar, this might be a first for me!
        :)

    Hey Grey,

    Haven’t been too many “panic” drops yet so far this season. T.Walker and T.Skaggs were just dropped in my 12 team H2H keeper league(keep 10). Would you grab either one of those for T.Glasnow or B.Snell? Tempted to ride it out a little longer with Snell as he seems like things might click for him soon enough.
    What do you think?
    Also do you like S.Casillla or Jeffress more for potential saves/ratios

    Shoiuld I drop delino for choo? Even though these are my only speed options, and some are not fast. From fastest to slowest this is who I depend on for steals. Besides this I have zero steal potential.

    Bradly Jr.
    Kepler
    Odor

    @mike: Should I add Cody Bellinger and own him for the next 3 years at $6. Then sign him to 4yrs $20 After that if hes good enough by then. Its a keeper league so someone said he is better then Moncada.

    Lost Semien in a very deep league, so slim pickings. Need as many counting stats as I can get, which is the least terrible add?

    Reyes, Marwin, Profar, Torreyes, E Escobar, Aybar, Hardy, Iglesias, Rojas, Beckham, Mercer, Romine, Ahmed, Barney, Rosales, Galvis, Pennington.

      @Mike: if you can add whenever you want i’d go guy that’s hitting now with playing time, thus rojas. if moves limits reyes.

    Guy wants a closer (seung oh from the cardinals on waivers) and he wants my David Robertson…

    So I ask you:

          @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: can’t complain about that one. I play in a 10 team league and Haniger is available – just asked Grey if I should add Haniger or Inciarte and based on need, my pick is Inciarte

        @William Hung: one that values closers stupid high… they go for $15-20 in the auction and i draft Robertson for $3 and bedrosian for $1 and then hope for something like the above to happen

            @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: I’ve drafted the guy from $3-$8 every year because my league hates the whitesox.. all Cubs fans. Amazing to see weird valuations from leagues to leagues

    oh man edmonds is soooo much better an announcer than that old guy STL used to have every day.

    camera for whatever reason cuts to a likely father jerking his under 4 year old around by the arms, making his head bob up and down, while this kid’s eyes are literally bugging the F out of it’s head (to a rather creepy extent really). edmonds compares it to a bobblehead (which is apparently a promotion at today’s game) causing the other announcer to mention that the parents might not be happy with this comparison, likely anticipating his bosses breathing down his neck about edmonds. f’ing awesome. edmonds says other honest stuff that announcers tend not too.

      @Russell: bush

      • Andrew Edenbaum says:
        (link)

        @Grey: As soon as I heard the news, I dropped Treinen for Bush. Problem is Bannister is going to be very careful with Bush. Doubt we’ll be seeing too many back to back days, at least for the 1st month. Sure hope the Nets trade for Robertson before Texas does.

    20 team dynasty based around TEX (have to have at least 9 of them). 7 RP slots. holds/k/9 relief wins added. probably some other stuff too

    my worst being pressly/hoover (with barrett stashed)/hembree. also giles/jeffress/romo/grilli.

    somebody hit the switch on the back of TEX’s manager and realized one of his top 4 RP guys is in the minors. KELA returns. so which of my 3 is the drop?

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: and i guess in a 16 team dynasty with same 7 slots (no TEX thing though) dyson is dropped before m.cab (ATL). i need closers, having one now with ramos/kelley/storen/rivero/jones/reed (do have britton)
