And-Gim isn’t just Pam from The Office’s requested guest list plus one. And-Gim isn’t just someone remembering late their favorite characters on Taxi. “And-Gim And-Gim number nine, on the New York Transit Line, if my train goes off the track, pick him up, pick him up, pick him up! Back on the scene, crispy and clean, still 23 with an outside chance for 20/20/.300!” Okay, that last part didn’t rhyme. Yesterday, Andres Gimenez went (4-for-8, 5 RBIs and his 13th and 14th homer, hitting .312) in the doubleheader. Gimenez is averaging about four homers a month, and has seven steals already this month. If he gets ten steals in a month, well, I don’t want to wake up Mr. Prorater — “Did you know your uncle spends more time on Facebook than Jonas Salk spent on polio?” — Oh, shut up, Mr. Prorater! Andres Gimenez is in that delicate area where if he loses just a little power and speed in 2023, then he becomes a 15/15 guy and that’s a little yawnstipating, but he’s also on the precipice of becoming a 20/30/.300 guy, and that’s top 25 overall guy. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Randy Dobnak – Will begin a minor league rehab assignment. He’s got a sparkling 4.8 star Uber rating.

Xzavion Curry – 5 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 3 Ks, as he was called up to start the 2nd game of the doubleheader for the Guardians. Curry was all around the plate, really knowing how to cumin-side.

Josh Naylor – Left the game with soreness in his ankle that he hurt brutally last year. Can’t swag if you can’t walk, we will stay on standby for more news.

Aaron Civale – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 5.63. That was a season-high for strikeouts. Streamonator loved this start of his, and hates his next one, and I don’t disagree. Me and the robot are simpatico.

Kerry Carpenter – 3-for-4, 3 runs and his 1st career major league homer. Gave you a whole Kerry Carpenter fantasy already. It was written on the back side of a Bazooka Joe comic. Problem since then is Carpenter doesn’t seem to be playing every game.

Bryce Harper – Took batting practice at Citizens Bank. In the parking lot? By a teller? *intern whispers in ear* Oh! I see.

Corey Knebel – Hit the IL with a lat strain. This should open the Phils’ 7th inning up to all takers. Living up to Knebel’s massive failures will take some doing.

Noah Syndergaard – 7 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.95. The Snyder Cut denotes a very long movie. The Synder cut is the cut-off when Noah reaches 75 pitches and needs to get pulled from the game.

Seranthony Dominguez – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 1.45, and his 9th save, as David Robertson (1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 1.99) worked the 8th. It actually makes sense that adult contemporary ainger, Rob Thomson, would go with Dominguez over Robertson as the closer, but usually when a team goes out and gets a guy in a trade, they go with the new guy, so good on Thomson for doing the right thing. Now play Unwell.

Jonathan India – Was in the original lineup yesterday, but was scratched. I know this trick! He’s pulled this shizz every week this year. He pretends to be healthy on Monday, then I put him back in the lineup and by Tuesday he’s day-to-day with something and misses half the week. Not this time, India! No way! I benched him this week, and I don’t care! Get in the lineup today, and hit seven homers this week! Go ahead! I’m unaffected!

Jake Fraley – 1-for-4 and his 4th homer, as he hit leadoff with India out. Fraley also had multiple hits the previous two games and might be a light schmotato. Really? F’raley!

Walker Buehler – Will undergo elbow surgery on August 23rd. Maybe then we’ll hear what kind of surgery. There’s a chance he needs Tommy John surgery, which would have people saying Buehler…Buehler…Buehler…with no answer until 2024.

Gavin Lux – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .297. Wonder if Lux can tap into more power and become Corey Seager Part Two, aka Morey Seager.

Freddy Peralta – 4 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 4.21. Welp, he’s up to 92 pitches. Maybe finally his next start can be worthwhile.

Nelson Cruz – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his…what number homer? Go ahead guess! How many do you think he has? C’mon! Guess! He hits 30 every year, there’s six weeks left so how many homers does he have? Wrong! He has nine. At 58 years of age, it’s finally caught up to him.

Josiah Gray – 6 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 4.79. As someone who has had Gray all year — contractually obligated — this was the best start I remember from him, and, after looking at his game log, this was actually his 2nd best start. He still feels 12 months away. Could see being in on him next year, but he’s gonna be iffy for half the year.

Kyle Finnegan – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 3.47 as he got his 5th save, as Carl Edward Jr. (1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 3.16) now works the 8th inning. *rips up Nats closer shares* I don’t know what Davey Martinez is doing. They’re a 100-loss team. They don’t need to play the 9th inning all cutesy. Just put one guy in the 9th!

Ian Happ – 2-for-3 and his 11th and 12th homer. That’s my kind of Happ’ening!

Ryan Mountcastle – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 16th homer. Change his surname to Mt. Castle, and it’s suddenly a critically acclaimed foreign animated film.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 1-for-4 and his 24th homer. C’mon, Cake Batter put your cake into it!

Vinnie Pasquantino – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, and 5th homer in the last week. Vinnie Pasketti! Hey, whaddya doin’? Your mother’s been calling!

Johnny Cueto – 8 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.78. Can’t believe the size of the pile of crap I stepped in by drafting this guy in an NL-Only league, and having him count even though he signed with an AL team. He has no business being this solid. Shows you it’s better to be lucky than good.

Jose Urquidy – 7 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.69. Was thinking he’s a start everywhere, but looked at Streamonator anyway to see what it thought, and it does not think he’s an everyday start guy.

Luis Rengifo – 1-for-4 and his 8th homer, and his 2nd homer in five games. Meh, who needs Mike Trout?

Shohei Ohtani – 6 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.69, 1-for-4. There was some talk in the comments yesterday about whether or not Ohtani would get a 2nd start this week. My guess is he will, but I’m also going to watch the Better Call Saul finale right now, so I’m not sure.

Luis Castillo – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.73. Speaking of better to be lucky, I drafted Castillo before there was word of a shoulder injury in the spring. Never would’ve drafted him after that was revealed, and I would’ve missed out on him.

Jesse Winker – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer, hitting .229. He’s having a season that’s on par with two months from, say, Ozuna.

Evan Longoria – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .245. Honestly, look at Winker’s home run total and look at Longoria’s. I mean, how long of a woof can we get for Winker?

Alex Cobb – 6 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.99 vs. Madison Bumgarner – 5 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.37. This start was billed as, “Cobb ‘n Bum, we don’t judge here at Razzball.”

Christian Walker – 1-for-1 and his 28th homer. Imagine throwing a dollar at this guy in a deep league, and he’s out-homering Castellanos, J.D. Martinez and Yelich — combined!

Luis Guillorme – Out for three to four weeks. Buck Showalter said Brett Baty and Mark Vientos were not options to replace him. Showalter didn’t mention why he didn’t go to Zack Britton. By the way, I just googled Britton, because I forgot if he changed to Zach or Zack and I didn’t want to deadname him, and I found out his middle name is Grant. Ya know, as in Grant Britton. Is his dad’s name Union Jack, but he goes by U.K.? Any hoo! Eduardo Escobar should see everyday playing time now.

Carlos Carrasco – 2 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 3.92. He didn’t return after a rain delay, but a Mets’ beat writer said they saw Carrasco holding his side, and could have side tightness. Baseball reporting: Watching to see if a player is holding a weird part of his body.

William Contreras – 1-for-4 and his 16th homer. Crazy, he’s actually only one homer behind his brother, and his brother has nearly 200 more plate appearances.

Travis d’Arnaud – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 12th homer. The French Terminator said, “I’ll be back back back back,” as he mimed the baseball.

Spencer Strider – 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.04. About as boring a start as Strider’s had. Gonna say it’s because of the rain delay. Did he grab his side? Did he grab Carrasco’s side?

Marcus Semien – 2-for-4 and his 18th homer. Rangers fired their manager, Chris Woodward, yesterday. Turns out when you spend $500 million in an offseason the expectations are better than 23 games out of first place in your division. Of the firing, Woodward said, “You just gotta Roll With It, baby.”

Glenn Otto – 6 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners (6 BBs), 1 K, ERA at 4.96. Six walks and one strikeout. Otto Stinkling.

Nick Allen – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer, and 2nd homer in as many games. Hot schmotato alert!

Sandy Alcantara – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 1.92, as he shutdown the Padres. Padres are making me howl, bros and five sisters. On August 2nd: Can the Dodgers hold off the new-look Padres and win the division? On August 15th: Will the Padres make the postseason?

JJ Bleday – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer. He’s got such an easy home run stroke I’m absolutely getting roped in. Plus, JJ Bleday is a top tier baseball name.

Joe Musgrove – 6 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.98. Bdon and I discuss Musgrove inferior 2nd half numbers, which couldn’t have been predicted by anyone ever. You can watch us on Youtube today vs. waiting for podcast, if you like.

Fernando Tatis Jr. – His dad, Fernando Tatis Sr., illustrator and former player, said — and this is a real quote, “(Tatis Jr. used) a steroid that contained a spray called trofobol, (because) he got a fungus due to a haircut.” Ha, oh boy. His mistake was a janky haircut, okay? He went to Supercuts and they didn’t dry his hair, and he went outside and got fungus, this is getting more and more plausible. Fernando Tatis Jr. at a press conference, wearing a giant mushroom hat from Super Mario, “I’ve got fungus.” Then later, Fernando Tatis Jr., head under beauty salon hair dryer, yelling so the ladies can hear him, “Only fun guy I’m gonna be hearing about is at parties!” That’s right, he’s now Fungus The Jewels.

Great news! I was able to trade Henderson and Cabrera for Semien and Ray. A bit surprised it was accepted especially since the trade was with the commissioner who plays in some industry leagues. But he’s not competing in this league and both Henderson and Cabrera will be very cheap keepers next year. A couple more questions about the same 14 team OBP league.

1) Who would you drop between Votto, Voit and Hall? I need to improve my roster flexibility and can only play 2 of the 3 at any given point. Doubt I will be able to get anything in a trade.

2) Which 2 of these outfield eligible hitters do you like best: Yepez, Pollock, McCarthy, A Diaz, Duran, O Gonzalez, N Velazquez, Fraley

Thanks again!

I’m in a tight race for the K category that I need. Concerned Monoah may be getting tired as he hasn’t looked too sharp the last month. He’s @ 137 IP I believe and was 111 IP last season. Would you take Nola or Strider over him? If so, in what order do you prefer? I do have May on IL, but he will be limited QS not likely for him.

Hi Gray,

I am still learning how to use razz dollars which i use to make position decisions.

For First base today, I could use Rowdy Tellez whose Razz Dollars is +7.4 against the Dodgers, or Josh Bell is 1.3 at Miami or CJ Cron is -9.9 at St Louis or Aledmys Diaz st CHW at -12.1

I am going with Rowdy Telez. Is that the right move?

Thanks!

I don’t have a pressing MI need, but there’s a chance I activate Dejong next week for his 8 game slate if he continues to be hot this week. But I don’t want to miss out on Oscar. Ogonz or Dejong?

Hey Grey…I hope you are starting to feel 100%. I am seeing no positives with Bo Bichette right now. He’s walked 1 time this month and is 7 for 14 this year stealing. To make matters worse I just read that Toronto has finally dropped him to the 7th spot tonight.

Unfortunately, hope clouded my judgement and I think I missed my window to sell him for full value. Now I am wondering if he was a product of that little league field they played at last year.

With Bo stinking all year and Acuna/LouBob barely playing this has definitely been my most frustrating fantasy season ever. Rant over…

Hi Grey,

Option 1: I only have Will Smith of the Dodgers at catcher. Thus, i have left the spot empty 14 times. I was thinking of adding Joey Bart as a backup. If you would go by Yahoo points for the last 30 days, CJ Cron, Josh Bell and JD Martinez are on the bothem. Does it make sense to cut one of these three and pick up Bart. What do you think?

Option 2: Because of your advice , I have picked up Rowdy Diaz,Andres Gimenez, Amed Rosario and Michael Harris II. There five players have given me a number of points in the last 30 days. Another option is to cut Aledmys Diaz to pick up Bart and go with one 3B (Wilmer Flores) till Bryant comes back.

Option 3: Hold

Looking forward to your thoughts?

Thanks!!

14 team h2h keeper 6×6 with OBP, TB, QS and K/BB

1) Trying to trade for a SS eligible hitter. Was just offered Semien for my Henderson. Trade deadline is Sunday. Would you take this offer or hold until the deadline to see if Henderson is called up?

2) Thinking of expanding the deal and upgrading my pitching as well. Was going to offer Edward Cabrera for one of his expensive starters. Who do you like best between Ray and Bassitt?

3) Ultimately, would you deal Henderson and Cabrera for Semien and Ray/Bassitt?

Keep 6 auction league. In-season pick ups are $1. Following season keeper prices are the average of pervious price paid and auction calculator projected price. First year kept 15% discount, second is 10% discount, third 0%, fourth 10% penalty, and fifth 15% penalty. Semien, Bassit and Ray would all be $15-$25 keepers next year, Henderson and Cabrera would likely both be less than $5. Change anything?

GImenez is baffling to me. The guy checks all the boxes w/ the exception of a sub-ok walk rate, yet he is behind yawnstapating guys like Brendan Rodgers and Amed Rosario in total points.

This is because Francona seems to perversely enjoy benching the guy with the 150 wRC…

What a year for Tatis Jr. I will look forward to your recap of his lost season this winter, should be fun to rehash it while the rest of the world is watching NFL.

Quick trade question. 12 team keeper league, in which I own Fungus the Jewels. I’m currently 5 of 12, and on the cusp of playoffs. I was offered Vaughn Grissom for my Michael Harris II.
The only reason I would consider trade is because Harris won’t be a keeper for me and Grissom would qualify for our rookie keeper for 2023, unless he eclipses 150 AB this year. What are your thoughts?
My keepers are Sexy Dr Pepper, Tildaddy, Treat Urner, Yordan and FTJ

J.Naylor (ankle) and B.Lowe(Shoulder/cant hit anything). I need an OF. Franmil, Pollock, Joc Pederson, or Grisham? Leaning Franmil or Joc. Franmil bc he cant be this bad. (unconfidently stated)
Joc bc he gets coors this weekend.
The way my teams setup this is my 5th OF and can be a platoon guy as I can slide Josh Rojas to OF if need be.

Roto Q?
Starting Ed.Cabrera @SD in a 12tm? Or dont push the luck after having sandy shut them down last night and fix the ratios a bit?

(Sorry) catcher Q.
D’Arnaud, or Baby Contreras over JP Melendez? I grabbed melendez when Le Franc Terminatoir got hurt last week…switch back?

Appreciated I’m in a must win week to hang on to a playoff spot.

Here’s a fun game…feel free nation to play at home (but hide those sharp objects first!). Here is a partial list of guys I cut from my 12 teamer during the year.

Adolis, Gimenez, Pham, Seranthony, Merrill, Adam, Eugenio, Vaughn, Rasmussen, Cueto.

When I look at my team now ( second place squad), Gimenez would be a decent replacement over Gleyber but at the time was being platooned often, Adolis and Vaughn over Mount as Adolis was an impatient move and Tony was sitting Vaughn a lot, Seranthony over Bautista as I felt Robertson would be a bigger negative and Bautista’s role was more clearly defined, Pham was terrible for 35 games but hot now…maybe over Mount. Merrill over Mahle I guess as he is my worst starter.

Maybe not as bad as I thought but always good to torture yourself.

I love AND hate doing this…in a 16tm where the trade deadline eliminated all my closers I’ve dropped Devin Williams, Seranthony(2x), Naylor, Santander, A.Kirk, Heaney, Taijuan(then paid $9 to get him back)…not huge names but in a 16tm itll kill you.

You say you’re in second which is very nice for this time of year so at least (hopefully) none of these players landed into the first place teams roster? I know you are just venting so I hope I didn’t just open a sore wound haha

All is good. Kinda making fun of myself. But also making the point that if you are going to be active, you will make mistakes – or there will be unintended consequences. And you can still have a top team. Tellez, Miranda, MJ, have been solid for me. Best of luck

Hola Grey,

I have both Charlie Morton and Taijuan Walker today. Would you start both? SON has them at

Morton vs NYM $10.1
Walker at ATL -$23.1

with the way Walker last pitched against the braves (8ER in 1 IP) and the braves scoring 13 runs last night, i am leaning toward benching Walker today. Any thoughts?

Speaking of bars, two guys walked into a bar

The third one ducked.

Anywho, something to this LaMont Wade fella, or just a hot schmotato?

A man walks into a bar. The bartender asks, “What do you want?” The man says, “Oh, just some fruit punch.” The bartender sighs and shakes his head, “If you want punch, you’re gonna have to wait in line.” The man looks around, but there is no punchline.

Happy National Tell a Joke day!

Anyway, who you like better this week/ ROS (12-team 6×6 OBP league)

Vinnie P.
V. Grissom
J. Meneses

Thank you kindly my good man!

glad you ranked them that way…Vinnie was just scopped up.

And I assume you’d rather have Grissom over L. Taveras or CJ Abrams, right?

thanks again!
