Overheard at my house on Christmas, “Why isn’t it Jesusmas?”  Then someone who you only see once a year chimes in, “‘Jesus, mas’ is what I say to the waiter when I want more cheese and his name is Jesus.”  Ah, family over the holidays.  Arriving a few days late for Christmas for Yankee fans was Aroldis Chapman.  It didn’t come in their stocking, but he will probably be wearing a stocking on his head while he tries to board a domestic airline with a gun.  “You know, in Cuba, no one cares if I wear a stocking on my head and try to rob people, because Fidel owns everything anyway.”  That’s Aroldis sitting next to someone in First Class who is being polite but just wants to watch Jason Sudeikis in Vacation.  So, Aroldis joins an already stacked Yankee bullpen and does nothing but makes it more sizzling, obviously.  I could make the case that Aroldis is the best closer of all-time, not just the best one in the majors right now, so, yeah, he’s definitely a $12 Salad and that doesn’t change in New York.  He could miss a couple of weeks of the season, due to domestic abuse charges, but that’s not set in stone, and, if baseball is ever going to become as popular as football, then the league will turn the other cheek while asking his girlfriend to do the same.  For 2016, I’ll give Aroldis the projections of 4-2/2.04/1.03/110, 40 saves in 60 IP.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this offseason for 2016 fantasy baseball:

J.J. Hoover – Should take over closer duties in Cincy.  Hehe, I said duties.  Jumbo Diaz could also see opportunities if Hoover sucks.  Pun points!  Before projecting either of them, I’m going to wait for the spring to see who the Reds are leaning towards, though, knowing the Reds, they’ll be left-leaning.  I’m pun-crazy!

Jason Rogers – Acquired by the Pirates for Trey Supak and Keon Broxton, who is Jonathan Broxton’s soul brother.  This is an odd deal because Rogers was the only guy the Brewers had to play 1st base.  The Brewers should totally hold a contest where one lucky fan each game gets to play first base dressed as a giant bratwurst.  The Pirates were perhaps the one other team in the league that didn’t really have much at first base.  They didn’t even have a guy with a slash line; they had a guy with a series of dots and slashes in Michael Morse.  Then, soon thereafter, the Pirates acquired John Jaso.  Since Morse promises to be injured by April, Jaso and Rogers could sneak into a lot of playing time.  Rogers was a guy who had four homers in a half a season last year, and Jaso had five homers, so this is really awesome stuff for fantasy.  Oh, and Shane Peterson, who is now slated to be the Brewers first baseman, had two homers in 93 games last year.  Wow.

Hisashi Iwakuma – You know in high school when you broke up with your girlfriend for three days and dated another girl for those three days, but then dumped the new girl and went back to your original squeeze?  That was Iwakuma, the Dodgers and Mariners.  Iwakuma had rebound sex with the Dodgers, but ended up back with the Mariners.  Since the Dodgers didn’t want to be with Hisashi long-term due to an injury, I’m also concerned about him for 2016.  I could see him coming at a discount and maybe drafting him, but I wouldn’t expect more than 150 IP.  For 2016, I’ll give him the projections of 8-8/3.51/1.05/125 in 150 IP.

Daniel Murphy – Signed with the Nats because the Nats didn’t want me making “Wilmer Difo is at his best in a platoon” jokes all year.  I bet Charlie Sheen could’ve gave him some assistance, too.  Whew, glad I didn’t use the thesaurus for assistance!  The Nats will likely put Murphy in the two-hole and hope he turns on his heart light in October of next year like he did this past postseason.   For 2016, I’ll give him the projections 83/14/59/.285/4.

Mike Leake – Every offseason a few pitchers win the lottery with huge deals, then a few other pitchers win runner-up prizes.  The ultimate runner-up prize is to be signed by the Cardinals because that means when their contract is over the pitcher will look like one of the best pitchers on the market because everything the Cards touch turns to gold.  The Ghost of Dave Duncan casts a long shadow.  Leake is a career waiver wire fantasy starter, but it wouldn’t shock me to see him come into his own in St. Louis.  For 2016, I’ll give him the projections of 12-9/3.58/1.22/142 in 207 IP.

Alejandro De Aza – Signed with the Mets and should share time in center with Juan Lagares.  Lagares must wear the same musk as Wilmer Flores, because, no matter how promising he looks, the Mets refuse to give him a full-time job.  Could be worse, that musk they’re wearing could be Bartolo’s Colon.

    I was going to criticize you for mentioning all those teams with nothing at first base but not mentioning the Padres, but then I remembered that no one mentions the Padres, and I guess there actually is a guy who kinda sort hits maybe when he’s not injured, or at least he did that one time a few years ago.

    Yeah, Wil Myers!

    Then I remembered (i.e., looked up on Fangraphs) that he has never played more than 90 games in a Major League season.

    So, yeah, cautious optimism!

    Wait, these are the Padres. Unfounded cautious optimism!

    By the way, in case you haven’t seen Star Wars yet, it’s the first Star Wars movie to have good acting since The Empire Strikes Back. All of the new characters are really well done.

    The only part I didn’t like was when it was revealed that the main bad guy was actually an Ewok standing on another Ewok’s shoulders and then wearing human clothes.

    Grey,
    I’ve got a 6X6 keeper league dilemma, please advise…
    As I said, 6X6 (OBP & TB are coupled with other the usual suspects). We can keep 7 and 4 MLers each year with a $5 salary bump for MLBers (I am inputting 2016 salaries)
    C – Schwarber $6 / Rizzo$30 / Altuve$21 / Betts$12 / Springer $11 / Pederson $7
    MLers – Giolito $1 and Alex Reyes $1
    Who should be my 7th keeper or 5th and 6th if you think so
    Sale $41 / A.Miller $10 / Ramos $6 / Severino $6
    I had Miller in as my 7th but not sure if Chapman will eat away at his value?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

            It’s AJ Ramos.

            OBP, HR, TB, R, RBI, SB & ERA, WHIP, K, Saves, Wins and Appearances are the categories, thanks again

    Wow that’s a fun present for a Yankee fan. Rumors are Miller is being dangled so we may never see that three headed monster guarding the gates of hell. Still would be nice to think about. Depending on your league set ups Betances and Miller will still be plenty valuable and might get a nice chunk of vulture wins and random saves.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Yeah, Miller won’t suddenly be bad, just not getting saves

      • Christine Michael: one Unlucky Whitehead (just pop him or not) says:
        (link)

        @Grey: he might even be better in saves + holds, since rather than thinking they absolutely have to give him a whole 9th inning he could be used nearly every day now.

    Love me some Grey knowledge!

    1st look at my keepers for NL5×5 2 Catcher league

    Keep 8:

    Familia 8
    Fernandez 7
    Wong 11 raises ba to 270
    Rendon 10 he was the top dog last yr n only 25
    Rizzo 21
    Polanco 1 bags bags and hoping some power added to 30 bags

    Wellington 2 underated power surge 2 bargain in 2
    Catcher league

    That’s seven but still not loving them yet.

    Rest of them:

    Maybin 2 inj risk but cant ignore 15 Homer 25 bags
    Grichuk 3 yes 25 dingers 265 10 bags

    Peralta (az) 1 look n at what he did n 2nd half. 20 Homer 300 avg 20 bags

    Matt Carpenter 18 too much $
    Igelsias 3 again look at last 2 months he figured something out k machine
    Leake 1 n st louis will help him

    Lost Chapman today but have more than enough decent choices of 8. As with most leagues even and 8 team with 5 person bench, hitters r hard to find(Grichuk and Maybin FOUND last year in free agency) while starters can be found not a lot of depth there either.

    Put down who I like but would love a look see from u grey to get your perspective at this point

    In a four player keeper league with Goldschmidt, Bryant, and Arrietta for my first three keepers. I have Cespedes and Upton for my final keeper spot. Obviously, should keep Cespedes above Upton. I’m worried about Cespedes declining next year and thinking about trading Cespedes for an additional first round pick (3rd). Do you think Cespedes will post similar numbers to this year or drop off? I figure wait until he is traded and ship him when he has the most value.

    Would you be willing to trust A. Rendon to stay healthy in 2016? If he was your starting 2B, would you invest higher than normal in a back up 2B? Would going after a guy like DeShields cost too much to sit on the bench if Rendon stays healthy? I guess I better make sure he has 2B eligibility in my league too.

                      HA! So is Sam, you ask him if he wants a treat he runs over to where I keep them and wags his tail, if you say the word orange in my house you get attacked. We literally say orange in spanish to each other so he doesnt freak out

    14 team 4×4 toto. 260 budget. I have control of Grienke for 2 [email protected] 24$ I could trade him for Betts @ 19 for one year. Pull trigger or hold?? My other keepers are scherzer Stroman Salazar and springer

      Grey says:

      I’d want Betts

    Hey Grey!

    Looking for a fantasy baseball question to answer? Here’s one for ya!

    10 Team Roto $260 Budget Auction League
    OBP instead of AVG, QS instead of W
    Keepers increase in price by $3 each year.

    Please pick 5:
    Rizzo ($26)
    Chris Davis ($24)
    Dee Gordon ($20)
    Abreu ($17)
    Bautista ($16)
    Arrieta ($16)
    Bogaerts ($11)
    Pollock ($9)
    Salazar ($4)

    After Pollock and Abreu, I’m curious to hear your rationale with the rest. I’m torn between locking up the more costly established talent versus the cheaper players that will give me more flexibility in the draft.

    Cheers!

      Rizzo, Abreu, Pollock, Gordon Davis…

        @Grey:

        Thanks buddy! Any commentary on Davis over Bautista?

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          I like them about the same, Davis is a bit younger

    Hey grey hope you’re enjoying the holidays,

    Quick question for you ..I’m in a 5 player keeper league (12 team) and I’ve got 4 of them set (rizzo,Stanton,arenado,d.gordon) and I’m torn between keeping schwarber or greinke… If I keep schwarber I could move greinke for a draft pick… Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks! You too! I’d keep Greinke

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      What kind of draft pick though?

      • Alex says:
        (link)

        @Grey: not sure I haven’t announced him available yet… what pick would make it worth it? I’m missing some mid round picks (12,13,14,15) so I thought I might be able to get a couple back in return.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Bleh, those picks aren’t worth it if that’s what you’re getting back

    Thanks for the recommendation of The River! That was definitely worthy; top-notch stuff. I can accept a shorter run (6 episodes) if it means the quality remains high throughout. I’ll keep an eye out in the comments for the next endorsement, but LMK if there is something else that has already caught your attention.

    I’m usually the one to spot an actor from other work, but the wife beat me to identifying Ira as the actor that played Wilson Wilson in Utopia. (Also a good show if you haven’t seen it. I can’t remember where I picked up that one – it may have been here.)

    Looking forward to 2016 at Razzball. Happy New Year to you and the rest of the clan.

      Utopia, huh, never heard of it… I’ll have to look for it… Making A Murderer is incredible, definitely watch it… Happy New Year!

    After owning Miller and Betances last year in a H2H holds league,the thought of owning those 2 and Chapman got me so excited I tried to have Bruce Jenner surgery so I could have wet panties, but my doctor explained it doesn’t work like that.I guess I’ll just have to buy some fat chicks pair off the internet like usual.

      Grey says:

      Ha

    As a Yankee fan I feel good about Chapman. If Miller stays, the SP situation looks a lot better going into the 7th.
    Going back to prev post:
    My currant keepers are Aberu, Frazier, Bogaerts, Soler, Grichuk, Moose

    . With that being said, I was just offered Arrieta, Baez and Conforto for Bogaerts. Knowing the 6 you suggested above and me not having a SP, you I do this deal?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, that sounds solid for you

      • Ryan says:
        (link)

        @Grey: yeah thought so. If I do the deal what 6 hould I keep? Aberu, Arrieta, Frazier, Soler, Grichuk, Moose, Conforto, Baez.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Not Baez or Conforto

          • RY says:
            (link)

            @Grey: So the deal would be really Arrieta for Bogaerts if I shouldn’t keep the other 2?

    Just took over a dynasty team and was offered Pujols for Duda [15 team 5×5]. Here is my team:

    C Vogt
    C Realmuto
    1B Duda
    2B Baez
    SS K Marte
    3B Rendon
    MI Semien
    CI Colabello
    OF Bryce
    OF Betts
    OF Hicks
    OF Souza
    Util Pearce
    BN Tomlinson, Almonte, Dietrich, Smoak, De Aza, Ruggiano

    SP Buchholz, Corbin, Hutchison, Verlander, Sabathia, Nuno, Rich Hill, Buehrle (I know, disgusting)
    RP Britton, Rosenthal, McGee, Axford, Strickland, Grimm

    Farm system looks pretty weak, not much other than Renfroe & Wilmer Difoe. I do have the #2 pick overall in the draft though.

    Few questions:
    1) Do you think I have a chance to compete this year if I made some good moves?
    2) Obviously I need some major pitching help but where else do you think I should target to improve?
    3) Would you trade Duda for Pujols?
    4) Assuming Moncada is taken #1, who would you want at #2?

    Thanks for the help!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1) Sure 2) Your infield is a mess 3) I’d want Pujols… 4) Who are the top five guys available?

      • booya says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I’d say tops are probably Brendan Rodgers, Maeda (if signed), Swanson, Ian Happ, Carson Fulmer, Benintendi

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          All lottery tickets, I’d prolly go Rodgers or Benintendi

    Yo December Grey! Won my first NFL title and now I’m bored again. Fantasy golf will be starting up again shortly. I wish we had a golf section on here. Looking forward to crushing fantasy baseball again.

    Will be dropping some MLB futures in a couple weeks in Vegas. I like Cleveland (25/1) and Dodgers (16/1). Wacha think?

    Happy new year to you. Would you trade Iglesias and/or Severino for Upton?
