Amir Garrett, or as he’s commonly referred to as, Muslim Mrs. Garrett, took Natalie, Jo, Blair, Tootie and that little white kid, who no one remembers, to school last night.  Muslim Mrs. Garrett was like, “Listen, child, I’m your boss while you’re in this park and I’m going to rule over you with sweet motherly affection, but an iron fist like you get from a male Gulag prisoner.”  Yesterday, he straight dazzled — 7 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 1.83.  MMG is so out of nowhere I feel like we need to start at the beginning.  He was born– Okay, flash forward Lost-style and they’re off the island and Garrett is a former basketball player, so his age isn’t as old as it seems for his development level.  I think because of that he could also sneak up on people.  His control gets wonky at times, and he doesn’t read as a strikeout pitcher, but there he was doing just that last night.  He could surprise some people, but A) Reds and their ballpark. B) Rookie.  C) There’s no C.  To take this back to 80’s sitcoms, there could be some Boners along the way through Growing Pains, but I’d grab him if you feel like Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, or can just handle the risk.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Trey Mancini – 1-for-4 as he hit leadoff.  *writing this before the game*  I dropped him the other day in two leagues, and I feel like this will be a huge regret.  Stupid position eligibility.  *writing this after*  Meh, but why the hell would he be hitting leadoff?  He’s a power hitter!

Zach Britton – Will go for one of those oh-so-lovely precautionary MRIs on Friday.  Without reading too much into it (while doing exactly that), they’re waiting for Friday so that means it can’t be too bad.  I mean, if it was bad, they’d schedule his MRI for today.  Who are we kidding?  This can’t be good.  Yesterday, Brad Brach got the clean save, but I’d own Darren O’Day too, until more news comes out.

Ubaldo Jimenez – 7 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners (4 BBs), 3 Ks, ERA at 5.51.  The story of Ubaldo:  You have a full head of hair one day, then you’re pulling your hair out because you own this schmohawk and you’ve been Ubaldo’d.

Kyle Hendricks – 5 IP, 4 ER, 8 baserunners (4 BBs), 4 Ks, ERA at 6.19, and every metric is pointing to trouble.  Not to turn his drafters into mad men, but hard to look at Hendricks and not see a big bust.

Albert Almora – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer, hitting .391.  I wanna get super jazzed for Almora like Ryan Gosling, but the Cubs’ outfield is overflowing.

Addison Russell – 2-for-4, 4 RBIs and a slam (2) and legs (2), hitting .254.  Looks like the day off on Tuesday did Addison well, which is what I hope never goes through Maddon’s head because then he’ll randomly bench him more often.

Ryan Braun – Got the day off yesterday, because he’s only earning $19 million this year.  He deserves a good Shabbos every third day!

Neftali Feliz – 1 IP, 4 ER.  Holy shizzshow, Batman.  What the Butterball Turkey was he doing coming into the 8th anyway?  Let your closer pitch the ninth!  This so hard to understand?  Jimmy Crystmas, as the Morons say.  (It’s a fringe Mormon group that isn’t that smart.)

Travis Shaw – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, and third homer in the past four games.  I wonder if Thames sneezes on me if I too can hit homers.  It’s worth a shot since I have a charity softball game coming up, Save the Childproof Seals.  As for Shaw, yes, of course you should pick him up, he’s smoldering.

Jett Bandy – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer.  That would be leading some of my teams in power.  *lifts desk, drops desk on foot, desk falls apart*  Stupid Ikea!

Mat Latos – Will start this weekend in place of J.A. Happ vs. the Angels.  I wouldn’t go near him with a ten-foot pole.  Speaking of poles, whatever happened to wife, Dallas?

Kevin Pillar – 3-for-4 and two steals (1, 2).  For the last two days I’ve said he’s a hot schmotato.  Today I’m saying, c’mon!

Francisco Liriano – 5 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 5.11.  I feel like you’re new to fantasy baseball or a glutton for punishment if you want Liriano.  Gluttons, I can’t help.  New people, don’t go near Liriano, he’s always a start or two away from a 1/3 IP, 5 ER game.

Rick Porcello – 7 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.32.  A nice bounce back start for Porcello after a rocky last start.  Prospector Ralph texted me, “Don’t mention this in the roundup, but at one point in the game Porcello looked directly into the camera and said, ‘Ralph, thank you for your encouragement.'”  Oh-kay.

Mitch Haniger – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 4 RBIs, hitting .323.  It burns me up real good that I don’t own him anywhere.  And not a good ‘burn up’ like I’m Icarus.

Felix Hernandez – 6 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 13 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.65.  F-Her is Jesse Chavez with brand name recognition.

Edinson Volquez – 3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.82.  I was sonavabenched by Wei-Yin vs. the Mariners on Tuesday, so I was like, “You’re not gonna outsmart me twice in a row, I’m starting Edinson!”  DAH!

Giancarlo Stanton – 3-for-3 and his 4th homer.  I’m not saying this is the reason he hit this homer, but I did put on the Marlins game on my iPad, then put it down my track pants for his at-bat.  I don’t think that’s a coincidence.

Christian Yelich – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer.  Wow, look at Yelich trying to prove me wrong for saying he can’t hit for power again.  Hopefully Marlins play more night games and his mom tightens his curfew.

Jay Bruce – 3-for-4, 5 RBIs and his 5th and 6th homer.  Can it be July already so he crawls back into his dungeon of suck?

Robert Gsellman – 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 5.09.  He’s now sandwiched a bad start between two good starts and he put cole slaw and potato chips on the sandwich–Okay, I’m just hungry now.  Stream-o-Nator loves his next start, and I don’t see why you wouldn’t stay on board.

Lucas Duda – Left the game with a hyperextended elbow.  Said in a very soft, sultry voice, “Please let this mean Conforto gets playing time.”  Pats forehead with handkerchief, “Thank you, kind sir.”  I don’t know why I’m suddenly a southern belle.

Travis d’Arnaud – Hurt his–Oh, who cares?  Mesoraco and d’Arnaud should wrap themselves in bubble wrap.  Especially Mesoraco’s face.

Shawn Kelley – Dusty announced that Kelley and Glover will share closing duties.  A Glover from Kelley sounds hot, but a closer by committee sounds awful.  Why can’t Dusty take the toothpick out of his mouth for two seconds and ponder this shituation?  Kelley is likely the favorite, but Glover’s been better this year, and I’d own both.

Jayson Werth – Suffered a groin spasm.  I believe that’s like when you open one of those trick cans of peanuts and can’t get the spring back in.

Joe Ross – 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks.  I streamed him in one league, not even because of the Stream-o-Nator, just because JB’s in that league so I had to grab Ross.  He was fine, but I’ve since dropped Ross.  We’re on a break!

Bryce Harper – 4-for-4, 3 runs, 5 RBIs and his 5th and 6th homers, hitting .404.  It’s a bit early for this, but is he going to be drafted first or second overall in 2018 and disappoint?  Is he a Saberhagenmetrics darling?

Ryan Zimmerman – 3-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 4th homer, a grand slam, hitting .380.  What did we decide on again for his first DL stint?  After his 8th homer?  Four more to go!

Julio Teheran – 4 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 3.52.  The Regression Fairies love Dancing With The Stars, they have rainbow flag socks and they will defecate all over your ratios.

Freddie Freeman – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .440.  I wonder if Votto ever watches Freeman highlights and says, “What an odd mirror, it looks like me from four years ago.”

Gary Sanchez – Played catch at 60 feet.  Joe Girardi stood nearby with a boombox playing In Your Eyes.

Aaron Judge – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 5th homer, hitting .277.  I wonder if there’s room in my track pants for Giancarlo and Judge.

Starlin Castro – 1-for-2, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .368.  I like the people who comment with something like, “Your handsomeness knows no bounds, and there’s nothing but garbage on waivers, you think I should grab Sterling Catsup (sic)?”  Castro isn’t garbage.

Jose Abreu – 3-for-4, 1 RBI.  It’s an early Christmas miracle!

Corey Dickerson – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .322.  Also, in this game, his brother from another schmotato, Steven Souza went 2-for-5, 2 RBIs, hitting .328.  I don’t know why you don’t own them, fear of success?  Technically, you’re succeeding at failing, so you’re being successful anyway.

Jose Iglesias – Being checked for a concussion after tripping into a baserunner’s knee on what should’ve been a game-ending double play.  After the game, a reporter asked if it was a tough defeat.  Iglesias replied, “Defeat wasn’t the problem, it was the knee.”

Jordan Zimmermann – 6 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 5.94.  I’d love to pull every comment from the preseason talking about how great Zimmermann was in the spring, but I might run into Buxton, Broxton or Delino excitement and I can’t handle that right now.

Nick Castellanos – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs, hitting .220.  He’s been hitting in the two-hole, and not because his name is almost Castellanus.  It’s not the reason, seriously.  I don’t know the actual reason, maybe lack of options, but that could be a boon for him.

Dallas Keuchel – 7 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 0.96.  Because he was so successful in 2015, it’s hard to not think he’s right back there.  Well, looking at his stats, I don’t think he’s all the way back to 2015 form, but he is ahead of where he was in 2016.  So, 3.30-3.60 ERA range vs. 2.50 or 4.50.  That’s startable everywhere until further notice.

Josh Reddick – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .341.  I was about to pick him up and now I have to.  Hot schmotato alert!  *goes to my waivers, shakes fist*  Damn you, Ralph!

Logan Forsythe – Hit the DL with a broken toe.  I just legit Googled, “Has a camel ever broken its toe?”  Google was a lot less helpful than I expected.  Against righties, Chase Utley will fill-in for Forsythe; he’s okay in NL-Only leagues, and 2007 Classic leagues.  Against lefties, Chris Taylor will fill-in; he’s okay in…Hmm…Well, I’m sure his family loves him!

Zack Greinke – 8 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.28 vs. Jhoulys Chacin – 8 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.09.  At this game in Petco, it was bring your own “What else do you want to talk about?” conversation.

Michael Wacha – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.41.  Second verse, same as the first verse that I dropped on him.  When he’s been healthy, he’s been effective in his career.  The problem has been staying healthy, what are you his doctor?  Stop worrying about his health and just own him until you obviously shouldn’t anymore.

Dexter Fowler – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 1st and 2nd homer, hitting .183.  Best part of his waking up is Fowler’s crystallized on the top of the lineup.

Gerrit Cole – 6 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 4.70.  This is obviously an exaggeration, but has Cole ever pitched like an ace?

John Jaso – 2-for-3, hitting .100.  “Marte’s suspended!  Ooh, Austin Meadows!  Or at least Adam Frazier!”  Then you see John Jaso is the starting right fielder.

Josh Bell – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer, hitting .205.  I’m a cyclops with a monocle on Bell, but he has John Ja-Snow, the Informer, type power, so kinda meh.

Martin Perez – 3 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 3.60.  Fun fact!  A cocktail with no bite and comes with the bartender saying “I love you” rather than an olive is called a Martini Perez.  Oh, and the bartender’s your mother.

Joey Gallo – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer, hitting .188.  The entire Rangers team is struggling right now.  Yes, even Odor (0-for-3, hitting .203).  And Napoli (1-for-3, hitting .158), Gomez (0-for-3, hitting .155), Choo (0-for-3, hitting 222), Profar (0-for-3, hitting .154).  It’ll turn around, or my name isn’t Grey Albright, Fantasy Master Lothario (don’t abbreviate).

Jesse Hahn – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners (4 BBs), 4 Ks, ERA at 3.00.  As previously mentioned on the aforementioned tip, he was going against the Rangers and they made him look like Whitey Ford.  The pitcher, not the 1939 car that Henry Ford was selling to Nazis.

Khris Davis – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .321.  I wish I drafted Khris Davis and Eric Thames everywhere in March… *wavy lines*  Hey, I just drafted Davis and Thames, this is awesome.  What do you mean, it’s March in 1762 and I have German measles?!  AHHHHHH!!!!  *wavy lines*  Whoa, weird dream.

Yonder Alonso – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  “What if he revealed his middle name was Maria Conchita?”  That’s me at a meeting with Yonder’s agent discussing how to make him more popular.

Angel Pagan – Will not play baseball this year after receiving a ‘number of major league offers.’  Ha, Pagan’s trying to neg major league baseball.  “Instead of playing baseball this year, I’m gonna wash my hair.”

    I know baseball happened to you and this season is as good as any other, but it seems every day your insights exceed the goodness of baseball. That’s a scary thought!

      @The Flayed Man: I would hold in a dynasty. You have your infield pretty well covered now. Moncada would slide nicely into a UTIL spot, which is what Story would do also.
      Also, if that is your full pitching staff, I dont think you can give up Cole, even while he’s not pitching great.

        @Jason Eldred: thank you. Im finding hard balancing prospects for established players. I made a preseason trade that I’m regreting a bit. I sent my Donaldson/Sale/Benintendi/Yelich for his Arenado/Springer/Cole/Clint Frazier.

    Mr. Grey A

    Very depressed Sterling Marte owner. ( kept him for $31 ) needs some advice to go along with extra bong hits. .

    14 team mixed auction , 10 keepers, increasing salaries.

    Was offered Harper ( $39 ) and G Sanchez ( $10 ) for Rizzo ( $33 ) , Carrasco ( $14 ) and Gardner ( $3 )

    My team ( including bench ) :
    Pitching: Carrasco, Pineda, McCuellers, Madea, A Garrett, Triggs, D Norris, Famillia, Ramos
    Hitting: Rizzo, Odor, Lamb, B Miller, Grandal, Cozart, Belt, Buxton, Kepler, Tomas, Peralta, Pederson, Gardner, Sterling Fcking Marte, Semien, Tellez, Barretto, C Frazier

    A week ago, I would’ve declined and not wasted your time with advice question. That was before Sterling became Sterling fcking Marte .( I almost feel like I should do something to change teams karma ) and Bryce now clearly looks like the engineer on the MVP train this year.

    Should I hold and exhale? or take the Bryce plunge and accept

    Thanks in advance for yours, or any other Razzballers insights

    just like “Starling wasn’t peeing clarice” … took me a few hours ! AH
    (by the way i’m French, and fluently speaks italiano :)

    2) Grey, sometimes you Trump me once – sometimes you save me twice: keeper league
    – asked you at least 3 times about Krush Davis over Trumbone… in March and kept the COLD in April! NOT THANKS
    – but in April , you can get a HOT Lamb as well for Easter !!! kept him over Carpenter – THANKS

    3) already added them in the other teams: but still avalaible in this league!!
    Avisail Garcia and Cesar “spanish” salad ! pick up or stay put?
    My team is :
    C. Wieters – 1B Goldy – 2B Alty – 3B Lamb – SS A.Russell

    Very deep 15 team mixed 6×6 league..very pitching thin..I need one starter and can cut Dyson to make room..Please put in order : J Montgomery, S. Miller, A Miranda..awful, I know, but the pool is shallow and full of leaves. I think Tai beats Zeke, by the way.

    Hey Grey, just looking for some quick advice here.

    12 team head-to-head, would you use 2nd waiver priority (rolling list) on Ian Desmond? Alex Bregman has also hit the wire. Was trying to save 2nd priority for a pitcher, but opportunity knocks… and I plan on dropping Owings and Margot for Martinez and Dahl who are on DL, FYI. Heres my roster:

    Realmuto
    Goldschmidt
    Dozier
    Story
    Donaldson (Not in DL slot)
    Myers
    K. Davis
    Trumbo
    Villar
    Margot
    Owings
    J.D. Martinez(DL)
    Dahl(DL)

    Harvey
    Greinke
    McCullers
    Cotton
    Robbie Ray
    Edwin Diaz
    Melancon
    Jim Johnson
    Neris
    Glover
    Jeffress
    (Plus rotating streamer spot)

    Thanks for your time!!

      @trevorcorey: Drop Owings for Bregman. Drop Dahl, move Donaldson to the DL and pick up Desmond if still able.

    Speaking of a ton of Ks, I have Keon Broxton in a 12 team 5-OF keeper league for $3. When JD or Dahl return, I can bench him, but for now have to start him. Real tough with Story’s early slump and Hedges as your C2.

    Hold fast hope and keep him around, or drop him for a schmotato until JD or Dahl return? Available schmotatos are:

    Mini Miggy
    Mancini
    Hicks
    Pillar
    Adam Frazier
    Sad Face that I can’t include Jankowski or Deshizz (also on the wire) here as attractive options

    Grey –

    In my 16 team dynasty league I dropped Jose Reyes whose OPS resembles a teeny tiny speck of his former self from 10 years ago … and picked up Hernan Perez who’s 8 years younger and who was dropped by an impatient owner …

    Did I do good, bad, or is it all just ugly?

    What up Grey! Feeling good having Harper and Freeman fire away plus flyer on Vargas set me right back up to win the week. When you have depth where do you fall on trading for catchers? 12 team 5×5 h2h, 3 OF, 1 U, 1 each position, 7 pitchers. I have Longo and Rendon. Freeman and Rizzo so U is fine. Is Longo for Lucroy stupid or when depth plays in why not? Or eff that and trade for pitching and never sweat C ever? If you’re near philly in July, just saw a Bel Biv Devoe/ SWV concert coming that will be insane. Thanks man. (Bel Biv Devoe code for being roofied by a pitcher hence poison and or lack of power SWV hence weak?) I’m sorry for that it’s embarrassing

    What’s good Grey? My team is like Greg Brady in the “Hawaii Bound” episode and was stumbled upon a cursed tiki idol with Turner, Segura, Bradley Jr., Donaldson, Dahl, and now Forsythe on the DL (it should be noted that I also drafted Smyly and Rich Hill and have since dropped them to waivers). Turner, Bradley Jr., and Segura should be back within a series, but I’m at critical mass over here. Since it’s an OBP league, I’ve been thinking about cutting bait with Forsythe and just going with Brad Miller the rest of the season and pick up a schmomato in the short term to help out the offense. Good idea or should I ride it out?

    Grrey,

    H2H categories league. 8 team. Keep 5 that are anyone, then 5 under our rookie rule (round drafted, then 5 rounds up each year).

    I feel like Im overthinking this, but was just offered the following:
    His – Thor, Porcello, Clayton Richard
    for
    My – Thames, Keuchel and Amir Garrett.

    Garrett would be a last round keeper next year if he remained on the roster, which has value in our league, but it seems hard to not get Thor. Are these 3 sell highs for Thor and a buy low on Porcello?

    Richard would be an immediate drop to pick up another OF of legitimate value.

    Make the deal or no?

    Thanks!

    For any other Marte owners, take a look at the little Vice piece that came out post-suspension in which they talk to Victor Conte. Long story short: it looks like he was taking supplements from labs with shoddy sanitation because no one (subject to testing) would knowingly take what he got popped for- it’s detectable in tiny quantities for up to 18 months.
    The only relief for those of us who spent a decent draft pick on someone who tried to save ten dollars by getting generic steroids is this soundbite from Dick Pound (really his name) of WADA- uttered after a spate of positive tests at the 2000 Olympics and the associated excuse that they’d been caused by tainted meat- “You can eat boar’s testicles all week and not reach that level.”
    Maybe Marte was eating a lot of boar balls and this will all be cleared up in a week.

    Morning Grey and Razzball! Which side?

    J.T. Realmuto and Yasmany Tomás

    Or

    Mitch Haniger and Manuel Margot

    Is it even close?

    • Hawk says:
      (link)

      @Wnwdotcom:

      If your roster has a lot of steady, predictable guys I’d take Haniger and Margot because you can afford some risk.

      If your roster is full of rookies or perennially injured guys (Tulo, Stanton, Strasburg etc..) and you need predictability, take Realmuto and Tomas.

      • WNWDOTCOM says:
        (link)

        @Hawk: I was able to buy some guys on their slow start and have a pretty stacked team so this is a pretty low-risk move for me. Here’s a look at my team:

        C – None after the Realmuto trade: I’m looking at Russell Martin or Welington Castillo, both whom are free agents
        1B – Joey Votto
        2B – Dee Gordon
        3B – Travis Shaw
        SS – Brad Miller
        MI – Jose Peraza
        CI – Edwin Encarnacion
        OF – Mookie Betts
        OF – Bryce Harper
        OF – Domingo Santana
        OF – Mitch Haniger
        OF – Manuel Margot
        UTIL – Asdrubal Cabrera
        Bench – Jorge Polanco
        DL – Ian Desmond

        As far as pitching, I always draft some aces and then flip them for studs. For example, I drafted Strasburg and Darvish, paired them with Daniel Murphy and traded for Bryce Harper.

        SP1 Jameson Taillon
        SP2 Aaron Nola
        SP3 Andrew Triggs (Two-start a week streamer)
        SP4 Mike Leake (Two-start a week streamer)
        SP5 Blake Snell (Two-start a week streamer)
        Sp6 Jason Vargas (hot free agent add)
        Sp7 Tyler Glasnow (debating whether or not to use him this week)
        CP1 Mark Melancon
        CP2 Ken Giles
        CP3 Alex Colome
        CP4 Joaquin Benoit
        CP5 Shawn Kelley (maybe he leads committee)
        DL Huston Street (may look to drop and upgrade)

        My league is a 12-team H2H 5×5 daily lineup lock league. We do one keeper (mine was Betts from last year). 7 acquisitions allowed in a week period, I’m maxed out for this week.

        Thanks for the comment bro!

    Another Marte question. He was supposed to supply most of my steals along with Trea and Betts. We know how that is going. It’s a 10 team roto with 5 keepers. My options are:
    1. Simply replace Marte with Inciarte, getting R,AVG. and some SB.
    2. Move Myers from 1B to OF, add Mancini or Moreland to 1B. Not getting the SB’s.
    3. Do I waive Marte? He was a keeper this year. I only have 4 reserve spots including DL guys.

    Hey grey,

    In my 12 team H2H keeper league(we keep 10)I have the displeasure of owning both B.Buxton(keeper)and K.Broxton. Since it is a keeper league, I don’t really mind holding onto one of them on my bench for awhile longer to see if they come out of their early funk. But both is just too hard to take. Which would you kick to the curb first?

        It sooo hurts to cut bait this early. But he hasn’t given even a shred of a hint that he’s figuring things out at the plate.
        Which of these FAs would you grab for Buxton

    Something’s rotten in the state of Joey Bats. Contact rate down to 70% from over 80% last year, Swinging strikes way up, hard contact way down, and his pull rate waaay down from his career. I know this is a small sample size, but I can’t help but feeling we’re looking at an undiagnosed injury or a Wil-E-Coyote cliff situation.

    I drafted him at a relative discount in a 6×6 OPS roto league, and I’m holding for now with the hope that he’ll still put together some value a la Justin Upton 2016, but the numbers look super bad. No way am I starting him until he puts together a good week or two.

    Good morning Grey!

    10 team redraft 6×6 (QS not Wins, IP/Start is 6th cat; OBP not AVG, Doubles+Triples is 6th Cat)

    I just missed out on Severino Tuesday by 3 seconds (literally). The owner who got him is willing to deal him, but needs a closer and wants Melancon from me. I also have Kenley and Bush/Iglesias/Johnson/Watson/Kintzler are FAs.

    So, would you do Melancon for Severino, considering the depth of replacement options available?
    If so, 1)which of the replacement closers you like best? 2)Who is my drop for the replacement closer from the options below?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    C: Lucroy
    1B: Thames/Duda/Bird
    2B: Dozier
    SS: Story
    3B: Suarez, Donaldson (DL)
    CI: Thames/Duda/Bird
    MI: Miller
    OF: Pollock, Odubel, Thames, JD (DL), Dahl (DL)
    U: Kendrys

    SPs: Cueto, Strasburg, Klubot, Taijuan, Manaea, Joe Ross, Hill (DL)
    RP: Kenley, Melancon

    Considering my drop from the following pool: Dahl, Bird, Duda, Kendrys, Taijuan, Ross, Manaea

    Trade question for a 15 team H2H mixed league deep (dynasty) league where you can only start 5 pitchers daily and and there needs to be a 2/3 or 3/2 division between SPs and RPs. Both holds and saves are separate stats. Each team has thirty players total.

    My RPs are K-Rod, Edwin Diaz, Cam Bedrosian, Addison Reed, and Nate Jones.

    I was seeing some red flags with K-Rod and so did Kerry in his recent Ambulance Chaser post. Was wondering if any of the below trades make sense or if I’m just panicking to a rough start. I could get any of the following for K-Rod:

    a.) Justin Wilson and Adam Frazier (Adam Frazier would be be a utility guy on my team, not someone who starts everyday… I have Daniel Murphy at 2B and a good outfield (Betts, Pollack, Thames, Kepler, Calhoun, Toles and we only start three daily)

    b.) Justin Wilson and Ian Happ (I’m 2-0 and winning this week handily and am not rebuilding… but I do like him)

    c.) Conforto and Wilson

    A, B, C, or Hold? Thanks, as always for the insights.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Brian: C sounds fine, none are super grabby on me tho

    • B the Esq. says:
      (link)

      @Brian: C (although there isnt usually a C). Conforto is one injury, or a trade away from regular playing time, and I think he will thrive if he gets to play. In a Holds and Saves league, J. Wilson has been excellent and should continue to be so. May even get the closing gig at some point also.

    With a team name of Tijuana Testosterone it’s not wonder that Marte would get popped the first year on my team. Losing his SB was a big hit, but just made a deal to trade B. McCarthy for B.

I really like McCarthy this year and was stoked to get him at the end of the draft, but I had to move him for the steals right?

    The Nats and Rangers are likely blowing up Rick Hahn’s phone as we speak. Who’s going to overpay for Robertson? Might not take that long to find out. Though I could see some team like the Giants sneaking in there and pushing for a Frazier/Robertson package deal if he isn’t moved soon.

    Nola/Syndergaard on tap tonight. Can’t wait for that one. Probably not a good time to expect Franco’s bat to wake up though.

        @Grey: Didn’t Bush just get an injection in his sore pitching shoulder? I’d fade that bet. And Jeffress has looked meh.

        Kelley can’t go back-to-back regularly (which is probably why he didn’t win the job in the first place), and based on what I’ve seen of Glover, I don’t see him taking it.

        Nats and Rangers, your move.

          That’s true on Bush, good point… Glover looks fine from what I’ve seen, but I’d guess they go for a vet closer just b/c Dusty asks nicely

            Big Magoo says:
            (link)

            @Grey: I’ve seen Glover twice this year. Wasn’t terribly impressed by either outing. But he does throw hard and is an imposing guy. Seems to have decent control too. I’d take a flier on him over Kelley.

            I just mentioned Robertson cause he’s an established closer who’s clearly available at the moment. Colome would probably be the most interesting reliever who might be on the block, but he’d certainly cost more.

    Mancini over Broxton or Domingo?

      Either…Mancini over Broxton

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

        @Grey: Thanks. How about both? Holliday + Mancini over Brox/Dom?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Meh, if you want, Holliday doesn’t do much for me

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

            @Grey: Agreed. The one thing I’ll say in favor of Domingo – his BABIP is only .250 and, more importantly, he’s cut his strikeouts from low-mid 30s to only 20.8% in the early going. Keon, meanwhile, took the Ks Domingo shed and lopped that onto his existing K-rate (he’s something gross like 45% Ks).

              Yeah, Broxton’s a total mess

    Jackie Bradley coming off DL do I drop Yasmany Tomas, Hunter Pence, or Yasiel Puig?

      Pence

    Grey, is Strasburg a reasonable ask for my Thames? Or should expect a lesser pitcher? Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Try it

  110. JMoney says:

    What up Grey,

    OF – Trumbo, Tomas, Kepler, Keirmaier
    SP – Duffy, Carrasco, Paxton, McCullers, Maeda, Ross, Nova, Nola, Liriano

    Looking to upgrade the OF, thinking about targeting JD, which pitcher would you look to move? Is Duffy too much to pay?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d take JD

  111. Tigres says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey- today only, Franco vs Thor or Healy vs Paxton?

    and Kiermaier for Salami Tom fair in an OBP league? I could use some SBs. Gracias!

      Franco — I’d prefer Salami

    Milwaukee Catchers this year:

    .378ish avg/1.070ish OBP.

    They aren’t even really platooning. They are just playing every other day. This can’t be sustained… but man, what a start to the year that that position.

    Good deal or hold?

    10 team 5×5 OBP

    3 OF slots and Util filled by some mashup of:

    Pollack, Bautista, Brantley, Odubel, Joc

    Ozuna and Inciarte are on waivers, drop any of the above for either? My infield is light on SB’s if that helps.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Ozuna over Joc

    @Grey: I need to pick up a closer out of these 4 please help

    Glover
    Kelley
    Casilla
    Rosenthal

    Also Capps is available, will he take over the closer role when he returns?

          No problem

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      @nate: I’ve added Capps, put him on the DL. The Maurer owner just dropped him and I don’t plan to place a waiver claim on him, though he’s got the most saves in the pen. Not sure if this helps out with your Capps question or if i’m just a fool leaving that sweet SAGNOF nectar on the table.

    Hola Grey!

    12 team H2H league that does not count Losses.

    Loaded at OF and interested in Devenski.

    Piscotty doesn’t know this, but I’m thinking of offering him straight up — close enough, or am I giving up too much?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Too much

  120. dustyfingers says:

      Meh, don’t love it

  122. TheTinDoor says:

    Trade $2 Puig for Cody Allen? If it’s 2015/2016 Puig, steal for me.

    What’s the upside for Puig – how likely he goes OFF and makes me really regret trading for a closer?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sure

  123. SpottieOttieDopaliscious says:
    (link)

    Well Blake Treinen decided he wanted to f— with Hollywood Court and now I need to find a new closer.

    I’ve currently got: Kimbrel, Diaz, Johnson, Brach, and Treinen

    Do I drop both Brach and Treinen to scoop up Glover and Kelley?

    -or-

    Should I hold onto Brach and wait to see what Britton’s MRI says (waivers process on Thursday and Sunday)? If choosing this option, I’m leaning towards Glover since Dusty seemingly prefers him and, unlike Kelley, he’s capable of pitching multiple days in a row.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha, No, Treinen and grab Kelley

  124. joeg414 says:

    5×5 mixed roto
    Thanks

  125. I think I steamed my groin reading this update. Article? Blog? Glog? Flog? Wait, what the actual fuck am I reading anyway?

    Anyway, Castro was my 1st claim after the draft, needing MI help. I truly don’t know why he got so little love as to go unstaffed in 10 and even 12-team leagues – decent average 20+ HR MII who bat 3-4-5 suddenly not a good thing in FBB? I must’ve missed the memo.

  126. *strained, it steamed. What am i, Gwinith Paltro? Stupid autocorrect!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha, I don’t know, man, I think steamed is pretty good

  127. *also undrafted – ffs. My phone needs some of the roids Marte was taking. Also I’m drinking $7 beers at the Chicago airport.

    Fun fact about Chicagoans who travel – they’re all wearing Cubs & Blaclhawks gear because they’re like “yeah, Chicago proud!” Then they get where they’re flying to and they’re the most easily identified tourists to rob.

  128. WBBBB says:
    (link)

    When is it time to drop Maikel Franco? I have him and Holliday on the cusp of getting bumped and am cyclopsing Travis Shaw….he worth owning over the other two?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Nope

    • @WBBBB:
      A: not less than 3 weeks into the season

      Something I’ve noticed about owning Latin players (like like that, you racist!) is that they seem to suck until the weather warms up.

      Don’t be that guy who dropped Franco in April. Every league has one. Similarly every league has that guy who claimed Franco in April – that guy is usually posting here in October saying “…and I won it all this year because some dumbass dropped Franco in April, can you believe that shit?”

      Cust sayin’

    Gsellman? More like Gbuyman!
    My league is a weekly lineups one, who would you rather own? Gsellman (vs ATL, @WAS) or Kuhl (vs. Cubs, @MIA). I only have room for one of them. Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Gsellman

  133. John says:

    Been offered Dee Gordon for my Lamb. I can slot Pujols into Lamb’s CI spot so I think this is a win, thoughts?

    Second: Who an I dropping when Dahl returns? Granderson or Renfroe?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d take Gordon — Grandy

  134. Not Your Average Joe says:
    (link)

    Renfroe, Souza, Kiermaier, Kepler, Yasmany. How do you rank them ROS in a 12-team, mixed league, 5×5 redraft? Thank you!

      Kepler, Yasmany

  135. Polancodonk says:

    I need speed, have power. He has speed, needs power.
    My Lamb for his Hernan Perez.
    Fair, or am I giving too much?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds fair

    • John says:
      (link)

      @Polancodonk:

      Does Perez play much? Is it the Same guy with zero steals and sub 200 average who plays every third day or is it another Perez?

        @John: if this was LAST year this might be fair, lamb for a BN player is collusion or trade rape.

    The Sox finally got Sale a run. They’ve only scored seven runs in his four starts, and three of those were in extra innings. Give a guy some help!

    I’m all for preserving your SPs, but he’s dominated the Jays through eight shutout innings today. Just 102 pitches and 13 Ks. Pulled him anyway. Not sure about that call.

    • Big Magoo

      Big Magoo says:
      (link)

      @Big Magoo: And Kimbrel gave up the game tying homer to Morales about five seconds after I posted this. Jeebus. These managers have to use common sense sometimes.

      • Malicious Phenoms says:
        (link)

        @Big Magoo:
        Managers and common sense, that is a true oxymoron..

        • Big Magoo

          Big Magoo says:
          (link)

          @Malicious Phenoms: Yeah, tell me about it. Looks like Betts bailed Farrell out this time.

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Kinda on fence, think Kimbrel’s been so good, it was an okay call

            • Big Magoo

              Big Magoo says:
              (link)

              @Grey: Now Kimbrel had to throw two innings today and won’t be available for another day or two. Almost cost them the game too. Completely disagree.

      • Johnc says:
        (link)

        @Big Magoo:

        Magoo, you are the voice of reason. Help a struggling OF out a bit please (my infielders are golden!). I have Kepler, Granderson, Melky, Renfroe, Dyson (and sometimes Zobrist)
        Dahl on DL. Holliday, Heyward, Peralta, Pillar and VMart on the wire.

        1. When Dahl comes back who goes?
        2. Until then do you see a pickup over my current goofs?
        3. What is a reasonable OF trade value for Lamb???

        • Big Magoo

          Big Magoo says:
          (link)

          @Johnc: Standard 12 team 5×5 format? If so…

          1. Melky’s the first to go for me. .280/12/2 is very replaceable.

          2. I like Holliday, but don’t see him as a clear upgrade over any of your guys (except maybe Melky). Could probably hold there.

          3. Who’s your 3B replacement? I like Lamb, so I’d shoot for at least an Adam Jones type. Could try to buy low on Polanco or CarGo.

          • Johnc says:
            (link)

            @Big Magoo:

            Thanks! Have Rizzo, Seager and Freeman as my corners. Lamb in Utility spot. Albert on my bench most often. Thought I could move Lamb and hope Albert gets past his usual slow start.

            I do not know the language as a rookie (5×5 etc). I think it is a Standard ESPN 12 team H2H? . Ten hitting cats…runs, singles, doubles, triples, hrs, walks, rbis, sbs, average and fewest strikeouts in H2H league. Nine pitching cats.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Seems like an unnecessary extra inning in April

      • Big Magoo

        Big Magoo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: It’s fine if you’re pulling E-Rod, Pomeranz, or Wright in that spot. But your workhorse ace when he’s been dominant, efficient, and throwing low-stress innings? Doesn’t make any sense to me.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Meh, you could be right, but say Sale gets one out and two runners on and is up to 115 pitches…Then you need to bring in the closer in the middle of an inning and you can’t win no matter what you do

          • Big Magoo

            Big Magoo says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Sure, that could happen, but I think you give him that chance. Not only does he give the team the best chance to win in that situation (in my opinion), but you save the bullpen in the process.

            Can you imagine if the manager pulled Randy Johnson or Roger Clemens in that situation? Kimbrel is great, but nobody’s a better closer than an ace with his best stuff.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Yeah, I don’t fully disagree, and I honestly wasn’t watching so I don’t know how easy or hard the 8 IP were, they sound easy

              • Big Magoo

                Big Magoo says:
                (link)

                @Grey: Yeah, he was cutting through that Jays lineup without any problems. Getting tons of swings and misses and not laboring in the least.

                This is just one of my pet peeves. For some, it’s Joc Pederson’s lack of playing time against lefties. Others might’ve been turned off by CB Bucknor’s inconsistent strike zone the other day. For me, it’s when people (especially managers and front offices) view 100 pitches from Chris Sale the same way as they do 100 pitches from Lance McCullers. Drives me crazy.

                • Grey

                  Grey says:
                  (link)

                  How can Joc ever hit lefties if he never gets a chance?

                  • Big Magoo

                    Big Magoo says:
                    (link)

                    @Grey: See? Isn’t it frustrating?

                    I think it would be wise to schedule a few breathers for Joc when the Dodgers are facing certain lefties, but to let him play against others. I don’t think you’re gaining much by giving Van Slyke and Barnes more ABs.

                    • Grey

                      Grey says:
                      (link)

                      Tho, Van Slyke did homer yesterday, but I agree with you…. To pigeonhole a player that young is criminal… Imagine if the Cubs never let Rizzo face lefties

                  • Big Magoo

                    Big Magoo says:
                    (link)

                    @Grey: Sure, and that’s one of 8 homers that Van Slyke will hit this year to go along with a .250 average and mediocre defense. I don’t have a problem with sitting Pederson against certain lefties, but not specifically to get Van Slyke’s bat into the lineup. That won’t accomplish much.

      Trea Turner

  150. Muslim Mrs. G. was too damn funny this morning, Grey. Still laughing. None of those housemates got hot. Sort of like Buxton. Think that dropping him instead of Conforto is wise. Someone not playing is better than someone consistently check swinging at third strikes. Or try to give BUSTon another week???

    Ervin Santana went 6IP, 1 ER, 5K, 7 on base today.

    Thames again! .280/35/10 wouldn’t surprise me at this point. With his current approach, he should be able to muscle balls out of Miller Park all year long, even when he’s fooled. Happy to have two shares.

    I would normally feel smart, but I took Broxton over Benintendi in my last draft, so…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I’m glad I got him in one league, but I still don’t think he can avoid all slumps, major league pitchers adjust

      • Big Magoo

        Big Magoo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Coming into today’s game, his 20.9% O-Swing% was the 19th lowest out of 194 qualified hitters, and his 52.6% hard hit% was the 7th highest. Pitchers will definitely adjust, but I buy the breakout.
