Start engraving the Hall of Fame plaque for Albert Pujols now: First a Cardinal, then an Angel, always a God. Been a while since I got choked up about a player retiring, but this one had me bent over in disbelief like Brad Lidge. Often made fun of Albert Pujols, but he was arguably the greatest 1st baseman I saw. Objectively, he’s the best post-war 1st baseman in MLB history. (Bet you can’t guess number two.) Sure, towards the end he would smack the occasional homer, and plop a tennis ball onto his bat as he used it as a cane around the bases. Those early Angels and Cardinals years, though, no one could sniff Pujols’ rarified air. If he wafted the Pujols air, they came, which sounds like some x-rated anime film. The Angels did him dirty by just releasing him — even the Yankees gave Jay Bruce one final game! Maybe the Angels feared Pujols’s retirement celebration around the league would take an extra year, as he decided to jog Cal Ripken-style around the field. All this is super sad, especially since I lowered Jared Walsh (1-for-4, hitting .330) in my preseason rankings at the last second, and where’s my Jo Adell at? Welp, fairly well, Pujols, you will leave a gaping hole in the game, even if he says he wants to continue playing, which will just be sad. Retire, man, it’s time. *finger to ear* Wait, we have breaking news! Albert Pujols to play center field for the White Sox. La Russa confirms. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Shohei Ohtani – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer. Ya know that stupid argument baseball writers have every year that goes like this, “Can this pitcher really win the MVP if he only starts once every fifth day?” Ohtani’s found an answer.

Andrew Heaney – 6 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 4.11. This start was in Los Angeles Is 45 Minutes Away With No Traffic And There’s Always Traffic of Los Angeles, and his next start is a negative on the Streamonator in Houston, so Heaney gets to prove if he’s just an Anaheim Steamroller, or more.

Khalil Lee – Rumors that he could be called up by the Mets to replace Nimmo. Where’s Nimmo? Maybe finding himself. Who gives a sh*t? Pixar can f*ck off and they’re stupid talking animals! Wow, Grey lost it for a second. Here’s what happened. I saw Khalil’s name and thought of Khalil Greene, one of the ugliest players to ever play, and it freaked me out and my coping mechanism was screaming cusses. Okay, so Khalil Lee’s minor league stats are some of the more humorous I’ve seen:  8/53 with a 28.2% strikeout rate in Double-A. Yo, who’s his batting coach, Billy Hamilton? Not even Quay Hugebottom could fix that, yet — again with some stank — YET! Speed plays. If you need SAGNOF, I could see grabbing him. If you want a professional opinion, Prospect Itch said, “Lee has taken tremendously well to plate patience and base-stealing, but his swing mechanics and contact skills need work and reps. He’s likely to get these reps at the big league level soon, where he could be a stolen base boon in OBP leagues with little to offer in standard 5×5 for his first few seasons. Anyway, who wants to punch Grey in the face?” C’mon, man! Khalil will also be in this afternoon’s Buy/Sell, which you can see now at our Patreon.

Carlos Carrasco – Tranfered to the 60-day IL. I hate the Mets. The IL stint is retroactive, but that still doesn’t come close to lining up with previous ETAs for his return.

Taijuan Walker – 7 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, zero walks, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.38. Member when I had that hypothesis a few years ago that getaway day (usually Thursday) was a good day to stream because everyone’s checked out? Yeah, I still have that hypothesis. Any hoo! Streamonator loves Walker’s next start.

Brandon Woodruff – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 2 hits, 2 walks, 11 Ks, ERA at 1.73. The pitching line was so pretty that it’s not surprising Odubel spoiled it with a hit. For those new to the site, I just like to point out that I wrote a Brandon Woodruff sleeper last year, and absolutely loved him before everyone else. I created him. He’s nothing without me. And my shrink says I have an overinflated sense of importance – ha! I’m laughing at you, you quack!

Bryce Harper – Out for the fourth straight day. We’ve managed to unlock a hidden level of pain above your players going on the IL. Them not going on the IL and just not playing.

Alec Bohm – 1-for-3 and his 4th homer. Like a reverse aloe vera, please get hot Bohm.

Zack Wheeler – 9 IP, 0 ER, 3 hits, zero walks, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.83. Out-pitched Woodruff, and let me be the first to tell you I didn’t see this year coming from Wheeler. Absolutely fooled by 2020, and his dip in Ks and how it seemed like he was aiming for contact. Mea culpa. Though, and I won’t backpedal everything, Vogelbach was the Brewers’ two-hole hitter. Are they trying to lose?

Nathan Eovaldi – 4 1/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.62. Against the Tigers. The Tigers! Carole Baskin could shutout the Tigers! Bunch of rinky-dink hits too, like a blast from Eovaldi’s previous crappy pitching past, when he kept getting too much of the plate. Throw a gee-dee ball once in a while! So, Streamonator loves his next start, and I am holding firm, for now.

Franchy Cordero – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 1 RBI, as he replaced a hamstrung Enrique Hernandez. The Red Sawx scored 12 runs without one homer, but the true star was Hunter Renfroe who went 0-for-5. Ticker tease!

Jeimer Candelario – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .300. Second day in a row with three hits. He won’t be in this afternoon’s Buy, but he does seem to be a full-fledged schmotato.

Triston McKenzie – 5 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners (4 BBs), 5 Ks, ERA at 4.94. Check out the beanpole! And I still don’t trust him. Too many walks, looks lucky on paper, and I’d want to see more.

Franmil Reyes – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 8th homer, hitting .283. Only 46 more for the $54 Vending Machine Steak and the universe will be in order!

Pablo Lopez – 5 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA ar 2.04. There’s the World Famous Marlins Offense when my pitcher, Pab-Lo is throwing for them. Counting things you love to see? Zero.

Adam Duvall – 1-for-3 and his 6th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games. Hot schmotato alert!

Madison Bumgarner – 6 IP, 1 ER, 2 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at…Guess. He threw a no no-no and seems to have really figured things out, right? So, guess his ERA. Nope, it’s 4.91. Fooled the shizz out of you! I should be on a game show, “Fool Somebody.” Hardy-har, I am not the fool!

Lance McCullers – 6 IP, 3 ER, 10 baserunners (4 BBs), 8 Ks, ERA at 3.58. He got to face the Yankees’ B lineup since they benched their star, Rougned Odor.

Yordan Alvarez – 3-for-4, and his 4th and 5th homer. Okay, quick diatribe. I don’t like pitching, but the RazzSlam Points rules are goofy in favor of hitting. John Means scored 45 points this week, and Yordan has scored 34 points thus far. Means’s start was a top five start of the year, maybe of the last few years. 12 Ks, zero baserunners, 9 IP, 0 ER, I Means, c’mon. Yordan has a random two-homer week and he’s nearly that valuable and he can play every day padding the stats. It’s so crazy biased towards hitting.

Jose Altuve – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .256. Altuve, just short of being himself.

Gerrit Cole – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.61. Watched this game and, for what it’s Cronenworth, Cole was getting squeezed. Too bad the Astros abandoned the cheating. Nothing better than squeezing with nearby cans.

Giancarlo Stanton – 1-for-4 and his 9th homer, hitting .312. You ever have a dream that Giancarlo is wearing a whipped cream bikini and you’re a giant tongue?

Clint Frazier – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .151. That makes him Red Rum.

Danny Jansen – 1-for-5 and his 1st homer and 2nd and 3rd RBIs on the year, hitting .083. I was watching him with his four eyes with my four eyes and I was thinking, “Are those glasses new?” Then I saw he was hitting .083 and I was like, “Maybe he needs new new glasses,” and chuckled. Then he homered, so you can thank me. I think. Danny Jansen putting the yes in four eyes.

Marcus Semien – 4-for-6, 3 runs and his 7th homer, hitting .254. Who’s your early regret? Not having Semien in any leagues is mine. Other guys have been more productive, but Semien was so obvious, and so under-drafted in March. Could’ve had him in any league around 100th overall. Insane value.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – 5 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.31, as he was activated from the IL. So, now he’s a pain in my ass?

Randal Grichuk – 2-for-5, 5 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .306. More like GricHULK! C’mon, that one was good! High five! No? Okay.

Mark Canha – 1-for-4 and his 5th homer, hitting .248. For a guy with ‘ha’ in his name, there’s nothing funny about him, but he has been very productive on the sly.

Drew Smyly – 6 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 6.12. Solid bounce back to Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Starts. The Nats are pretty terrible this year, outside of Treat Urner, so that might’ve helped, and the Streamonator doesn’t love his next start.

Josh Harrison – 2-for-5, 1 run and his 1st steal, hitting .329. Been meaning to mention Harrison, because he was doing okay on our 7-day Player Rater, but serious snooze. I…yeah, you try to generate enthusiasm for Harrison. I can’t.

Max Kepler – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 1st homer, hitting .200. “If we stick an apple in his mouth, we can put him on the buffet table–Wait! Kepler moved! He’s alive!”

Nick Gordon – 1-for-2, and first two steals, as he gets his first start after being recalled. Looking at his minor league numbers and I feel like I’m having deja vu for every Twins’ prospect. They grow these high-contact guys on trees in St. Paul? Was St. Paul, the Patron Saint of Contact? Does St. Paul need contact so bad he’s now the Patron Saint of Elbow Bumps? I got questions, y’all! Gordon looks to me like a 5/13/.270 hitter over the course of a season, which is yawnstipating. One side note in his favor, stats at alternate training site last year are sorta lost in the wind, so maybe he developed his game/power.

Byron Buxton – Left yesterday’s game with a hip strain. Better than whatever happened to Lou Bob, but worse than a Shakira hips train. Guys and five ladies, Buxton won’t stay healthy. I’m sorry. I’m not trying to be an Aaron Bummer here. It’s gonna happen. Even if yesterday’s injury is merely day-to-day, it will happen.

Michael Pineda – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.43. Saw his ERA and I was like “Tiger Woods fist pump,” then I saw Pineda’s peripherals and I was like there’s gonna be an incoming piñata.

Jonah Heim – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 2nd homer, hitting .125. Jonah Heim is Superbad.

Jordan Lyles – 5 IP,, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 7.09. He’s allowed nine homers already. So, are they just now filming or are we actually watching the body switch movie with Lyles and Kyle Gibson?

Joey Gallo – 1-for-4 and his 4th homer, and two homers in four games. As I said the other day, he’s 18 months overdue for a 10-homer-in-15-game stretch. This could finally be it. If he could put together a 70-homer-in-120-game stretch, they might name a street after him. Joey Gallo Street would be better than Joey Gallo Way.

          Big Hurt is my answer. Maybe Thome if he qualifies… Bags is right there in the mix too.

          Miggy peak years were as good as they get though.

    Bumgarner has a 1.17 ERA in 23 IP after he (maybe) figured things out. 25 Ks/3 wins.

        Yeah, I’m not saying it’s clear sailing from now on. I’ll ride him until he blows up my ratios, and then move on.

  4. toolshed says:
    (link)

    I agree 100% about puljos. He deserved better instead of a flat out release. I do remember Fisk getting outed right after he broke the games caught record by the white Sox. I get that they want ohtani to dh and play Walsh, but it could have been handled a lot better given what he has done in his career. 5th hr, 14th hits, 3rd rbi, 15th runs, etc.

    • packers2018 says:
      (link)

      I hope the Cardinals give him a one day contract. That way he would know which hat to wear for the HOF. The Angels probably already made that decision already.

    • Steve-O says:
      (link)

      Willie McCovey #2 then Frank Thomas and my personal favorite, Fred McGriff

      Grey says:

      Yeah, agreed 100%….The money is irrelevant at this point…Let him do a final tour around stadiums and collect cars…Or a one day goodbye…Something

    • bigbear says:
      (link)

      Agree. Tough way to go about it. I get the decision, but it should have been handled with more grace and dignity. Same type of thing needs to take place in Detroit with Miggy, but the team is in a vastly different place…

      If he can play out the season, he’ll likely move up to finish #10 with hits and 12 in runs. No change in HR or RBI.

      Until he catches on somewhere, I’ll miss the Pujols jokes.

      • toolshed says:
        (link)

        Miggy still has 4 years left on that contract after this year. He will be there for a while which unfortunate if you are a tigers fan.

  5. Member Berries says:
    (link)

    I drafted Franmil and Ohtani but can only play one…

    I started John Means then had Freddy Peralra, Eovaldi, and Weaver blow it up within 24 hours

    I suck at fantasy baseball. Maybe I’ll try lotto scratchers

    • NUX says:

      You’re doing fine brother, keep your chin up. Use Rudy’s tools if you aren’t already. It’s a hard game, but they help make it easier. I own all 4 of those SPs in multiple places myself. It’s a long grind, we’re like 20% of the way there. Good luck rest of the way!

      • hot corner says:

        Yup. I had Means and Trivino going on the same night. Means throws a no-no and I end up with a 4.95 era on the night.

    Great post as always. Any chance I can get your opinion on a trade? 12 team H2H Yahoo:

    (1) Bichette / Rojas / K. Gibson
    Or
    (2) Ryu / Moustakas / R. Rodriguez

    • galica123 says:
      (link)

      MJP

      My 0.02$.

      Bichette side. It matters to know if it’s Miguel or Josh. Moustakas looks weak so far but he could produce. RichRod can’t be more valuable today than he will ever be, especially if he’s traded to a contender to be the 7th inning guy. So, take Bichette and run.

    Grey!!!!

    I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

    a. Last step before getting admitted in the hospital, COVID-19 PCR test…..Tested positive!! I have 0 symptoms, contact with no one ‘cept my ‘puter and y’all. If I’m without any symptoms I can retest in five days and hopefully test negative. Then I have to run the entire pre-op testing all over again. Sucks, but I’m not dying. Also, with the positive test and the negative test I can travel as opposed to being negative without being vaccinated.

    b. Added Harrison (before you went to post, so if he fails don’t worry it’s not your fault!!). Wong moves to the bench with the Brewers facing Rogers.

    c. Question. Here’s my ESPN 12-teamer, team.

    Posey
    P Smith
    Hampson
    Riley
    Bichette
    Anderson
    Hosmer
    Acuna
    Buxton
    Winker
    Adolis
    Margot
    Clint Frazier

    IL – Marte, Voit

    SP – Musgrove, Wood, Bumgarner, PabLo, Bassitt, Peralta, Pearson
    RP – Staumont, Dolis, Crichton. Fairbanks, Diekman, Tyler Rogers

    1. Who’s the drop when Voit comes off the IL? Margot, right? I could then slide Frazier to the OF, move Hosmer to the U and move Voit to the corner. Hosmer has been awful (0.23 on the PR-15, so really dead weight) so I might drop him.
    2. My BP sucks. I keep SAGNOF’ing as much as I can. Any ideas on BP help?

    d. Have a nice weekend (AGAIN, AGAIN!)! For quotes for today’s date, please refer to yesterday’s post!!

      Ante! Good to see you, I bet Grimey gave you the Covid…

      C. Margot at least gives steals…Unless Frazier gets super hot I’d drop him

      2. Coonrod? Givens?

      D. You too!

      • galica123 says:
        (link)

        Grey!!

        Ha!

        a. You’re gonna laugh hard when I tell you I’m in 5th in that ESPN league!! 5th with Acuna and Bux. You’re gonna laugh even harder when tell you I didn’t know I signed up for the league, only realizing on April 24 that I was in a league with Acuna, Bux, Winker, PabLo, Musgrove, Bichette, Anderson the list goes on.

        b. The league is 200 starts maximum (standard 5×5 roto), so have to seek out the long men who don’t start, are effective and K. So, Brogdon types I guess. Whitlock is gone. Petit might be there, who’s your drop for Petit?

            (link)

            Grey!!

            I’m already up to 38 starts, so I’ll consult SON and start ’em when they’re over 4.0 more or less.

    Albert was the first player I ever drafted in fantasy baseball, with the 11th pick of the first round in 2003, in a league that is still going to this day – the ol’ H2H.

    At his peak it seemed like he would go 1-3 on opening day and then stay at or above that AVG for the rest of the season. Recent years have not been that kind, but what a player.

    Also, should I accept a trade offer: two of my pitching prospects (Cavalli & Simeon Woods-Richardson)for either Bumgard or Hendricks? If so, which is better option ROS?

    My current Sp:
    Maeda, Lynn, Bassitt, Dunning, Gallen, Gausman (Alex Wood, but still eligible in RP spot).

    Awesome Pujols tribute! I grew up with the Jeters and Nomaaahs, but Pujols was the first player I remember who ever seemed to be just on a completely different level as everyone else, playing a totally different game! Even his bat and old swing looked like he was somehow taking advantage of something that no one else knew how to do! Anyway, good times + so dirty what angels did! Good thing he’ll be playing for the Os, Rockies, or White Sox before we know it for a little last hurrah! Hahah.

    Hey Grey!
    What’s with this Kelenic dude? Is he gonna be the new whit merrifield? How valuable is he?

    1) Would you drop Tapia, IKF, Madrigal or Solak for him?

    2 would you drop kimbrel pressly or will smith for Edwin Diaz?

    Great write up once again!

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      man, look what the dearth of steals has gotten us to, whit merrifield/kelenic comps. if things break right on kelenic he’s gonna be all jack nicholson joker “wait till they get a load of me” on whit merrifield. next up, “is gilberto jimenez the next b.hamilton”. try that one on itch to watch him laugh all over somebody’s ass. kelenic here is more likely to have more HR’s than steals.

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        if you aren’t starting madrigal he’s an easy drop for kelenic. my guess this is some sort of deepish redraft (deepish since madrigal is owned, but not super deep), redraft since kelenic isn’t owned (and e.diaz got dropped). but if it’s as shallow as it might be with e.diaz getting dropped, you can improve on madrigal anyway in FA. my guess is this is 14 teamer redraft but not tons of starting hitting slots.

    Also, how many outfielders does it take to field an outfield?

    Just off the top of my head: Juan Soto, Bellinger, Springer, Harper, Blackmon, Eloy, Luis Roberts, Santander, L Gurriel, Schwarber, Happ, Soler are all injured/banged-up/suffering from diseases of weak-pulse (Happ) to slothfulness (Schwarber & Soler).

    And I didn’t even mention Ozuna’s struggles.

    I know the game is hard, but now even Mookie is starting to show acute symptoms of inertia.

    Next year I’m going to draft a battalion of outfielders to ensure I can field an outfield.

Like two school girls with a crush, they giggled and laughed together about what a perfect fit it would be. Bud saying something like, “We’ve been looking for an older, below replacement level player to round out this roster. Jimmy I’m sorry but we’re going to have to let you go.”

      As someone else mentioned, hopefully, the Cardinals sign Pujols for a one, to allow him to retire as a Cardinal. Pujols was a Baseball God when he was with the Cardinals (100-30+-100+-15) and early on as an Angel.

    Happy Friday!

    I feel your Pujols sympathy brother, man that guy was fun to watch, electric almost every time he stepped up to the plate.

    I’m a little bit heavy at 3B (I have Jose Ramirez, Arenado, Hayes) in a 12 team H2H league and Bohm has been pretty blah at 1B so I’m thinking of trading Arenado for an upgrade at 1st. Who would you look to target for Nolan?

    I’m thinking possibly Abreu as a possible buy low, Olson, or Bellinger but open to other options if you have any.

    I wouldn’t say they did him dirty. This is basically what we want teams to do and what they should do if they are honestly trying to win… Walsh is proving his September was real and Ohtani is proving what a healthy Ohtani can do. How many times do we complain that team’s don’t play the better player of the present, not the better player of their career.

    According to Perry, this was an ongoing conversation they had with Pujols over the last 2 weeks, and that he voiced he still wanted to play “starter minutes” but with both Walsh/Ohtani crushing the time was now to transition Pujols to a part-time, bench role. And basically he didn’t want to accept that. So after some back and forth discussion Perry said they agreed the best solution to help Pujols get what he wants is to release him so he could sign with someone else for remainder of year and the chance to be the starter 1B/DH (and honestly, that’s the only way someone else will take him is on the league minimum with Angels still paying the rest of the $10M for this season via DFA).

    THe thing is it only took this long because Arte worships Pujols… he signed him from the word go because he wanted the icon in an Angels uniform passing milestones regardless of it being a bad baseball contract. For him it was a business decision and everything I have seen the second contract with the front office is still in place, regardless of the DFA, and goes into effect whenever Albert does announce his retirement.

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      i heard pujols tried using some of that worthless “hitter vs pitcher” nonsense “stats” and demanded to start vs yarbrough the other day, when they didn’t start him he started getting real uppity in social media about it. prompting what was going into the season (and going back a few seasons) a good decision currently anyway. identity conditions need not entail here (i.e. pujols now isn’t pujols for what he was most of his career). LAA would’ve been better off at least the last 2 years with somebody else on that roster (for sure if we’re assuming starting at bats). playing pujols over walsh or otani right now would be a tank move, like what MIL’s coach is doing currently. or CUBS dumping darvish. pujols himself would have to be str up insane or lying to say otherwise.

        right! 30… bleh

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      He should have a bench role…If he didn’t want to accept it a lesser role, you let him stew on the bench or you let him announce he wants out

      • Coolwhip says:
        (link)

        yeah… he should have taken the bench role and accepted how he could help the team most… still getting paid the same, but aging superstars are always very prideful (makes sense) and never want to not be the guy. he would of had his farewell tour playing limited ABs.

        I can’t believe I’m defending a move the organization made (there’s a first for everything!) but having him stew on the bench prob would have made the clubhouse uncomfortable and with Ohtani, Walsh playing so well you don’t want to make it awkward for them you need to let them fly, after all they are future of the team… Ohtani, Walsh, Adell(?) and Marsh and eventually Detmers are the foundation. Don’t need the circus of Pujols complaining publically (that’s a Dodger thing lol). Let the baby birds fly!

        P.S. i still like esoteric comedy ;-)

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, maybe…Just feels like every big company who has forced out an aging worker and it sucks

          • Coolwhip says:
            (link)

            From that view point I get where you are coming from. But we both would be complaining about management if they kept running him out there taking ABs away from Walsh and Ohtani (who are obviously better at this point) and wasting another season of Trout. Its a 2 -way street, and ultimately this was HIS choice.

            Can’t remember who said it, but its something like “When it’s time to retire, the young players will let you know.” You need to have self awareness and accept that fact that others deserve the time, its their time, more than your desire for self fulfillment. He could have put team first and poured knowledge into Walsh for rest of the season but he still thinks he deserves to be on the field more. Last week after one game he said despite the low avg he feels good about where his swing is at. So he still thinks he belongs on the field more often than not.

            Last thought, how do you think Perry feels? hahaha, he’s been on the job for like a month and was forced to make a desicision on releasing a first ballot HOFer… ain’t that some shit.

              • Coolwhip says:
                (link)

                its my understanding that he was aware this was coming, he just thought he could play well enough to delay it. And with WAlsh/Ohtani starting off so well it came way earlier than expected. Tough situation.

                    They did say it. haha. You and I the first week or so were like “why do they say that and then not play him”

                    Here’s a clip from an article march 2nd about Angels saying Walsh will be primary starter…

                    “Pujols was also happy to see Walsh fare so well last year and insists that he has no hard feelings about Walsh being set to be the regular first baseman in Pujols’ final year of his 10-year contract.

                    “I hope he tears it up because it would help this organization win,” Pujols said. “I’m not competing with Jared Walsh. I’m not competing with anybody. My job is to help this organization win. There’s no selfishness here, and if there’s somebody that feels like, they shouldn’t be in our organization because that’s not how you build a championship roster.”

    Here’s a seemingly no-brainer thought exercise for everyone. (Second day in a row with a trade question, but this one is a little more of a head-scratcher).
    I’ve been offered Boegarts ($25) for Gallen($2) in a 12 team H2H dynasty league.
    In a vacuum; obviously Xander side.

    In this very specific situation; there are two UT spots, and I do already have Javy Baez ($22) and Mondesi ($26), so at full strength I would be running out three of the top ten SS and spending nearly a quarter of my budget on them.
    My pitching won’t really suffer- I still have Bieber ($4), Gausman ($6), Maeda ($9), Plesac ($2), Means ($4), Musgrove ($5),Lopez ($3) and Alzolay ($1).

    So… take it, and flip a SS for something else I need later, right?

    Have a great weekend everyone. May all of your players hit all the balls, except those who are opposing me in my RCL.

    6×6 (OPS) Keeper

    A. Drop Lowe for Canha at 1B?

    B. When Bellinger returns from IL: Solak or Lowe at 2B?

    A) Heaney surprisingly has a 5.40 ERA at home this year and a 2.87 ERA on the road, and that’s after the HR barrage last week. Almost opposite of his career numbers.

    B) Ohtani has been the MVP for me. He’s a 30/20 threat and that’s arguably his floor. Any chance he plays some position on the field now that Pujols is gone? Would help me with eligibility and placing:)

    C) If you had to pick, where do you think Pujols will sign?

    • hot corner says:
      (link)

      A) Heaney gave up 7 ERs in his first start at home, but has been stellar across the board ever since

      27.2 IP / 2.28 ERA / 0.904 WHIP / 13 K/9

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      A. Road/away splits are surprising to hear, must be small sample thing

      B. Yeah, anyone who has him he has to be the MVP

      C. White Sox

    • Coolwhip says:
      (link)

      Nah, Ohtani will likely not play the field unless there’s a weird substitution or injury situation. Pujols leaving is basically to give him fulltime DH ABs as often as physically possible.

    Morning Grey,

    Would you still hold Ty France or would you drop him for the likes of Madrigal? I have Chisholm on the IL so this would only be a temporary move where I would likely drop either of the two anyway. But for the time being, who you would you go with until Jazz is ready to go? Thanks.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d go Madrigal

  52. Grey, looking to pick up Pearson.

    My pitching staff currently is, Bieber, Alcantara, Castillo, Dunning, Ryu, Maeda, Trevor Rogers, Kikuchi, McClanahan, and Valdez (IL).

    Who is my drop?

    Hey Grey – I was offered Lindor & Edwin Diaz for my Bichette in a 13 team 6×6 (w/ OPS & QS). I’m currently 1st in saves but just traded away Alex Reyes, Castillo to the IL and Trivino might not be getting another opportunity anytime soon. I also have Barnes & Clase.

    Trade analyzer says I should take it and run but obviously Lindor’s struggles make me pause.

    What do you think?

    • cyler8 says:
      (link)

      Is this a re-draft or keeper league?

      Re-draft I could see doing that. Keeper league I’m sticking with Bichette.

      • MediOAKer Matt says:
        (link)

        it’s a re-draft

    Haha nice I loved when Berman would call him Jeff “Brown Paper” Bagwell. Good times. Believe it or not Semien was sitting on waivers in my league until a few weeks ago. He is now my starting 2B.

    Sitting in first place right now in my Roto league with a 10 point lead. I have Arozarena and Tucker on my bench. Other Util / OF are Trout, Grisham, Grichuk, JD, Bregman and Story. My pitching has been a little light but I do have Flaherty and Wooddruf anchoring me.

    Question is should I hold Arozarena and Tucker in hopes they turn it around? Its an OPS dynasty league. 10 teams. Or try to move one or both of them for some SP help? I have a decent lead so part of my brain is saying “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Full roster below:

    C – Varsho
    1B – Rizzo
    2B – Semien
    SS – Trea
    OF – Trout
    OF – Grisham
    OF Grichuk
    UT – JD
    UT – Bregman
    UT – Story
    BN – Arozarena
    BN – Tucker
    IL – Springer

    SP – Flaherty
    SP – Woodruff
    SP – Rodon
    SP – Freddy Peralta
    SP – Ian Anderson
    SP – Tyler Mahle

    Hey Grey

    I accidentally posted this question on yesterday’s blog. Sorry

    Would you trade off Y. Moncada for L. Voit?

    Thanks

    • cyler8 says:
      (link)

      It’s fair. This is one of those “does this trade make my team better” scenarios for me. If you need a 1B more than you need a 3B then sure.

      • Alan2112 says:
        (link)

        I have Jared Walsh and Y. Gurriel for 1B
        J.D. Davis, A. Riley, and Y. Moncada for 3B

        Was thinking J.D. @ 3B when healthy, Riley as backup
        Voit @ 1B, Y. Gurriel as backup
        Move J. Walsh to OF slot to Replace A. Hays

        My current lineup:
        C – Realmuto
        1B – J. Walsh
        2B – B. Lowe
        3B – A. Riley

        C – W. Ramos
        1B – Y. Gurriel
        2B, 3B, OF – C. Biggio
        3B – Y. Moncada

    Hello Grey,

    12 Team H2H 6×6 OPS QS 3 OF Daily Redraft.

    Just revisited your Gonsolin sleeper post after someone just dropped him. We currently have 3 IL spots of which S. Marte, Santander, and Nico are currently residing in and wondering if I should drop someone to make room for Gonsolin or hold. I would have to drop a non IL player in order to add Gonsolin and then could keep him on my active roster until Nico is back next week or then cut one of the existing IL players. My current roster is as follows:

    C Yermin
    1B Aguilar
    2B Semien
    3B Devers
    SS Seager
    OF Tildaddy
    OF Mancini
    OF Peralta
    UT O’Neill
    BE Bell

    IL S. Marte
    IL Santander
    IL Nico

    SP Lynn
    SP Morton
    SP Bundy
    SP Gausman
    SP McCullers
    SP Mahle
    SP Means
    SP DeSclafani
    SP Ynoa

    RP Clase
    RP Yimi

    Mozel tov! And well done, Mr. Grey!

    A good read on Bleacher Report about the state of hitting vs. pitching so far this year.

    https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2942589-all-the-reasons-why-it-has-never-been-harder-to-be-an-mlb-hitter

    Long/short – new balls create drag, hitter trend to ‘swing hard in case you hit it’ approach being countered with more aggressive pitching (fastballs and spin rates), and defensive shifts. The writer throws in more day games, but I bet that shifts back to the norm once Covid wears off and decisions are more financially driven.

    In 17 IP he has 15 k/9 and only a 1.59 BB with a 44% k-bb%. In 23 IP last year he had a bb% over 5, which was the norm for him.

    1.02 SIERRA

    Do you know what’s different about his control or is it just too early in the season?

    Great week of re-caps, Grey. There are rumblings of an Andujar call up in Yankeeland. Can’t seem to drop a deserved Kyle Tucker. But rosters are littered with disappointments. In a limited moves league, should any of Schwarber, Moutcastle, Keplar or Vaughn be considerations at this point, when/if Andujar gets the promotion? Thanks; & may this be the last weekend of subpar play for our preseason faves!

        Rumor’s in the Bronx on Andujar, he could DH and play LF, meaning your boy Giancarlo, will need to bring his glove to work each day.

        Yankees also have him working out at 1B..I just want his bat in the lineup, figure something out NYY!!

          • Malicious Phenoms says:
            (link)

            Giancarlo is the best LF the Yankees have, Clint is a disaster, Andujar is horrible in the field..Gardy is old and Hicks has been awful in CF..

                    I have never been a fan of Cashman. Gene Michael built the Yankees dynasty.

                    Also think they may wanna showcase Miggy, to try and trade him..

                    Should of let Gardner walk and signed Brantley in the off-season.

    Dunno if you watched that Marlins but game Pablo was a lock for a QS until the defense caught Mets-stroman-itus & kicked the ball around, two separate innings in 2-out situations. So instead of the 3rd out, Pablo suddenly had to throw more pitches. The 1st time it led to an unearned run – the difference between his getting a W or a ND. The 2nd time it cost him the QS, as he likely would have gone back out at 84 pitches or whatever it was.

    I hate bad defense. Not as much as I hate the Mets, but it’s close.

    Grey! I have fond memories of Pujols’ 2016 season, helped me to 1st place that year. ++ other comments that it’d be great for Cardinals to sign him for one game, so we as fans could show appreciation. On to 2021 baseball… Castillo is negative on SON @ Cleveland tomorrow. I have both him and Civale, who SON likes a bit more. Start both? Or just Civale? Or skip Ohio pitchers altogether? Gracias and have a great weekend ! (but, give us the Buy-Sells first!)

      I remember that year….The last year Pujols was good was 5 years ago…Sigh… I’d start both tbh

    So kinda feel like this is a no-brainer, but I have never owned Manny

    Was offered in a 12 team, H2H Yahoo, standard
    My Solak for Manny Machado

    Machado No Doubt!? Just kind of surprised by this offer, but ask only because Machado seems off to a slow start…

    I’m leading in saves in a saves + holds league with these relievers:

    Trevor May
    Barnes
    Richard Rodriguez
    Clase

    In the other hand, my starters have been pretty bad this year. I have dropped already Luzardo and McKenzie, and still have Ryu, Sonny, Fried, Maeda, Castillo and Plesac.

    I’m near the bottom in ERA and WHIP, and last in Wins.

    I got offered Lance Lynn for Richard + Alex Reyes.

    I have already accepted the deal, my question is, who wins?

    Great write-up as always Grey. MLB network was broadcasting the game the day MadBum threw his 7 inning no hitter. I am rarely ahead of the curve on anything, but I randomly started to watch that game in the third inning which prompted me to research MadBum’s numbers to see if there was anything that indicated he had fixed whatever was wrong last year. His 4 seam velocity has increased from 86-88 last year to the low 90s this year so there seems to something concrete behind his improvement. He was hitting 94 in the no-hitter and next 2 starts, but it looks like he topped out at 92 yesterday. It will be interesting to see if he can keep this going.

    On Ohtani, if you had to rerank him today as a hitter, what range would he be in?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks! That makes sense, I watched him vs. Marlins, and not against the strongest team, but he did look better than he has in a while — Top 30 for Ohtani

      • letsgobravos says:
        (link)

        If Ohtani goes 30+/20+ while pitching, it’s going to be tough to give anyone the MVP over him. Hopefully not having to play Pujols 5+ days per week will help get the Angels into contention for the playoffs. They are in last in the west, but only 4.5 games out of 1st so they’re making this move early enough where they could stay in the race. Ohtani and Trout playing in October would be great for the sport.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, still a long way to go until October, but the MVP bets on Ohtani in the preseason are looking better now than then

    What’s good Grey?

    Couldn’t believe that the Angles DFA’d Pujols yesterday. Still in a keeper league that I started with my friends back in college, so we were texting about yesterday and concurred that we’re getting old, but fantasy baseball keeps you young.

      • crimedog says:
        (link)

        Where would you rank Senzel today and what has changed? top 7 2B puts him around like 80th overall in your rankings or maybe slightly higher. I think you had him in 300’s preseason. Not challenging, I’m genuinely curious of your thoughts as I just scooped Senzel after he was dropped in one league. Haven’t paid much attention to him otherwise.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I just said if Senzel were to play every day for the rest of the year as a 2B…It’s a hypothetical that doesn’t exist in the real world

          • crimedog says:
            (link)

            lol yes yes. He will be hurt.

              Yeah, I’d guess he’s good for like 60% of games

              • Robin Yount says:
                (link)

                I think he has some upside though compared to the usual2B bench fodder. If he stays relatively healthy and leads off like he is today he could be a steal. I would rather gamble on that with possible position versatility then most of the other options.
