This was me seeing if Shane Baz was ready to be stashed: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…and so on as I counted the months since his surgery. Do you count September of 2022 because that was when he had the surgery or do you start counting with October? Do you count June of 2024 because that’s when he’s returning? So, it’s been a while since he had Tommy John. The Rays suck, there should be laws set up to stop them from what they’re doing with all their players, especially their pitchers. Who have they attempted to ruin in the last two years? Drew Rasmussen, Taj Bradley, Shane McClanananananananananan, Baz, is there anyone else I’m missing? Fairbanks? Sure, count him too! In spite of the Rays, Shane Baz will return and show exactly why we thought he would be an ace back in 2022. When guys first come back from TJ, they tend to have a lack of command though, so if he’s not at 100% when he returns, it wouldn’t shock me, or if he can’t throw more than 50 IP. My guess is he’ll follow an Opener and be worthwhile in all leagues for two-plus months, and should be back any day now. It’s only been [counting again] …17, 18, 19…do you count both Februarys as two months if one was a Leap Year? How do you count? A little help! Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

PSYCHE! This post was released on Wednesday for Patreon members. It will be released all year early for Patreons, so if people are getting a jump on you, it’s because they paid the $10. Anyway, the Fantasy Baseball Buy/Sell:

BUY

Francisco Alvarez – He could be a top three catcher in baseball from his return to the end of the year. Dot dot dot. Then factoring in what him being on the Mets means, so he’s a top seven to ten catcher. Though, that means if Pete Alonso is around a top seven 1st baseman and he’s traded, he becomes a top four 1st baseman. That’s Mets Math, as taught to me in Queens Community College.

Mitch Garver – Mariners’ DH spot is Garver and Haniger, that’s one too many Mitches. A problem that sounds good in theory, but in practice it becomes more of a headache than it’s worth. I’m reminded of Michael J. Fox playing the iconoclast character, Alex P. Keaton, when he had two dates to the prom and he had to keep switching his ties. Eventually, you forget which tie is the right tie, and you get your Mitches confused.

Wilmer Flores – Once a year Wilmer Flores cries himself into being valuable for fantasy. Grab a tissue because Flores is sobbing.

Tyler Soderstrom – Is it no fun to pick up hot A’s hitters? Ooh, you poor baby, wait until you get to the White Sux hitters up next!

Andrew Vaughn – Vaughn’s been hot recently, so this isn’t exactly related to that, but it’s so funny when you look at old prospect grades for some guys. Vaughn is a 60 grade future value prospect? Are you sure about that? He’s a 60 grade power tool? A 70 grade hit tool? Okay, then!

Gavin Sheets – Gonna do us all a favor, and rather than listing all White Sux hitters, because they’ve been hot, I’ll give you just this additional blurb from Vaughn. So, Sheets, Lenyn Sosa, and Paul DeJong have also been hot, i.e., Colonel Mustard in 1917 Russia with a loose bowel!

Nick Gonzales – I usually give you big picture buys as the lede, so NiGo has been neglected. Burleson wishes he could get some shine. You guys are my Pink Pony Girls at the Pink Pony Club and you keep dancing! Sorry, I’m listening to Chappell Roan on like a real Zoomer.

David Hamilton – I can’t believe I bid more on Hamilton than any other player in one of my leagues, then dropped him before he got a chance to be an everyday player. That’s right, with Hamilton, I wasted my shot. And I need SBs in that league. A very stupid move by me, which brings me to another point. I like to think I play in competitive leagues, and you can make mistakes. I’m still in 3rd in that league, and it’s my Main Event league. Okay, bringing this shaggy dog story to an end and say Hamilton has great speed.

J.P. Crawford – It’s appropriate he’s coming around now. Just Peachy is in season.

Adael Amador – Already gave you my Adael Amador fantasy. It was written while announcing an AMA.

Donovan Solano – He hit .410 in May, when he took over for Bogaerts, and I meant to mention him for a few weeks straight, but he’s also very, very boring. Then he homered twice on Wednesday and made it impossible for me to ignore him, even though he was hitting under-.200 in June, previously. Chicks and Grey dig the long ball.

Jeimer Candelario – He could easily reach his previously season’s numbers: 22/8/.251. Oh, you thought his previous season was better? Well, no.

TJ Friedl – I will not rest until Friedl is at 100% rostered. This is my promise to you. [crowd cheers, banner behind me reads, “Convention for the World’s Least Consequential Promises”] Now, before I get off stage, I’m sorry about the promise of free parking. [crowd turns in an instant, boos] It was out of my hands! “Yeah, well, this is out of my hands!” [thrown tomato just misses head]

Heliot Ramos – He’s a leadoff man for one of the league’s–[sees Patrick Bailey is batting 2nd and Matt Chapman is third]–uhh…one of the league’s offenses!

Alec Burleson – He makes some weak contact, but he makes a lot of contact. If he made a little less contact when he chased balls outside the zone, he’d actually be better. Someone tell the Cards to pass this along.

Mike Yastrzemski – If a guy is in this column, he either has a favorable change in playing time or he’s appearing well on the 7-day Player Rater. Carl’s Jr. Jr. is the latter being Carl’s Hr. Hr. lately. With that said (Grey’s turning the ship around!), it’s truly impressive Carl’s Jr. Jr. has been able to stay in the league for six years. His stats are yawnstipating at best, and mostly awful. Is he a nepo baby?

Chris Paddack – This is a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to the bank.

Spencer Arrighetti – This is also a Streamonator call. “Hello, I hope you can understand me, I got my tongue stuck in your ATM.”

John Schreiber – How much longer can the Royals, an actual good team, go to McArthur without lamenting, “Hey, maybe this guy sucks.” Also, I’m getting optimistic that Tanner Scott gets traded to the Royals and stays a closer. Unfortch, last time I was optimistic about something was right before sitting down to see The Phantom Menace.

Jeff Hoffman – Not a lot of turnover this week so I’m giving you a few guys who have been extraordinary for the whole year who should be rostered in 100% of leagues but are not. No one can hassle the Hoff!

Cade Smith – Clase has been Clase A Prime Cut. Top of the Clase. 1st Clase all the way. With that said, Cade Smith has been just as good in middle relief.

Bryan Hudson – As some of you might’ve heard on the last podcast, and if you didn’t, why the eff ain’t you listening? Addicted to true crime? Those are real people getting murdered you sicko! Any hoo! Hudson has emerged as a top 10 reliever in fantasy on the Player Rater. Not just top ten middle reliever, but he’s been better than Josh Hader, Raisel Iglesias, Bednar–Well, a lot of guys!

SELL

Randy Arozarena – Expected stats are severely flawed. xBA is dumb. It makes no sense. Also, The Rice Bowl’s xBA is .208. Next to him in the bottom of xBA is Eddie Rosario, whose xBA is .204. How’sever, Rice’s SLG is .320 and Rosario’s is .362. The Rice Bowl has been incredibly bad. It’s like the rice paddies were flooded and this year’s rice crop is a sign that says: This Year Famine, Try Again Next Year. Rice is droppable in some leagues, so asking you to sell him might be a ‘too little, too late’ scenario, but maybe you can sell based on previous years? I don’t know. Maybe you can sell in a keeper for future years. I wouldn’t trade Arozarena for a bleachers seat next to Zack Hample, but I would look at our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.

1) are you dropping anyone to stash noelvi? I can move fry to catcher over O’Hoppe. I have a lot of flexibility with my CI/MI. I was thinking possibly Nick Gonzales or Gimenez

2) assuming you keep o’hoppe, would you drop him for Willson Contreras?

Thank you!

i mean if you wanted him before on his first IR’ing for torn elbow tendon and have IR spots, why not hold. but almost all these cases, when the guy thought he was the black swan and didn’t need to get his elbow fixed, and 6 weeks later “oops, it’s still a torn elbow tendon” suddenly they tend to see they ain’t that black swan, i’d be very happy to take even money that in less than a month he’s off to get that elbow fixed (and no matter what it is, ROS is over); and will not be playing from now till then. a lot of the time that news will be much shorter than a month too.

if you don’t have a lot of IR slots (which i suspect is the case or why ask) which other guys you have in them now might be relavant, but he’s likely in worse shape to play ROS than nearly anybody i can think of, and unless this league yr talking about is a dynasty he’d likely be the cut.

me too in one non dynasty (at least in those i didn’t drop) a 14’er keep 5 hitters only (so he’d only be a hitter keeper if i had weak keepers really anyway, and i don’t); and it was literally the day before that 4 HR outburst. but i got wong, and at least his OBP is extremely solid (even for non catchers). later some twit dropped fry (who can be used in CI or LF too), that was like a week ago.

yeah even going into the year vaughn was only a bit ahead of torkelson (and those 2 were back to back years too) for guys that went super high in real life drafts with awesome tools grades, that at best (vaughn) have carved out sometimes league average, sometimes worse hitting. both went top 3 at worst in fantasy 1st year drafts. from this i’m lucky to own none of them in dynasties. also have no yamamoto or imanga (the latter i could’ve in some spots though), that part doesn’t feel as good but nothing i could’ve did about it, i don’t tend to pick in the top 6 picks (and if i did i’d need a very specific kind of roster to pick a pitcher with that pick).

do have a ton of e.perez (which is nice but not this year), he didn’t go top 6 when he was first obtainable. more like top 16-25, which cleared me with my 1st rounder across about everywhere.

pretty sure he got world series MVP that time, and his stats said he maybe even deserved it. what’s his face, local hero in STL, who later in career ONLY hit at ALL well in playoffs, LAD added him at least once just before playoffs. my question is and was, if somebody is a good hitter in the playoffs, what the hell is going on the rest of the time. d.freese on that one. would add like 200 OPS points in playoffs vs season stats, at least 3 different times in playoffs pretty sure.

well bradish got 6 weeks till we found out it turns out yeah boss tanaka type stuff almost never happens. torn elbow tendons usually prevent anybody from being a sustainably for a while top 30 or better SP. oh baby some people blew a LOT of FAAB though (in my leagues where from large IR slots (some infinite) we cannot just go into FA and stash (can draft though)). and that usually is over 97% of them.

that’s a deep league right here, i run a 20 with 6-7 max RP slots and all sorts of stats that help balance SP vs RP to want a lot of RP and neither of those owned. law’s been streamed or owned shortly from time to time, sera dom had been earlier in season from career track record till he performed his way off even usually the 6th inning with leads. guys like the horrible COL guys that might be in the future a closer there or are now (kinley, mears, vodnik) are owned though (it’s really hard to find closers there obviously).

Also, for next year, I’m trying to rank the following keeper for next year based on value and then see about making some trades. We keep 5 and it’s H2H, 5×5 (OBP) with $280 cap. What are your thoughts?

  1. Acuña (58) – He probably won’t adjust much more over his career since he only adjusted a few dollars even with last year’s record year.
  2. Rey-Lo (3)
  3. Lawlar (4)
  4. D. Williams (7) – Top closers go for 25 – 30.
  5. Masyn Winn (2)
  6. Steele (14)
  7. Carroll (34) – could see being moved higher if he figures things out and can become at least 75% of player he was last year.
  8. Garrett Mitchell (1)
  9. Chourio (23) – Could see him being moved up to top 5 if he has a huge 2nd half.

LAD are goofy, they obviously spend more money on their starters, yet then they already have these bums: c.taylor, kike and want a 3rd just like that in biggio. this is done in fantasy leagues for sure, wanting 1 backup guy to cover for the most positions possible for when a starter is off, but a real life team with all the money ever having 3 of them, but c.seager they didn’t want to pay hehehe.

Yesterday we spoke about dropping Stone for Taj if Stone had a blowup game.
He didn’t but only got 3K’s.
My league is 10 team roto
We count net wins
Stone is 7 and 2 so 5 net wins.
His next start is in Colorado.
Would you still drop him for either
Taj who’s next start is @ Minnesota
Or
Hunter Brown whose next start is @ the Whitesox.
Both throw more strikes but don’t have the wins
Era and whip are also categories

Would you drop Gore for either Hunter Brown or Taj. Both have good matchups next week. Gore already given up a run to Miami

Gore seems to have rebounded nicely. If Stone has a bad outing tonight against KC. Would you drop him for Taj.

Afternoon & Happy National Bourbon Day! I know what I’m having for dinner tonight now (hint… it’s bourbon)

Anyway, I’m looking to grab someone to help boost up the “proof” in my lineup. How would you rank the following (12-team 6×6 OPS):

  • Andrew Vaughn
  • Davis Schneider
  • Andy Pages
  • Noelvi Marte (early stash when he gets reinstated)

Also, you still holding Ryan Jeffers even though he’s only playing every other Catcher is a wasteland. “best” available:

  • Danny Jansen
  • MJ Melendez
  • Gabe Moreno
  • Tyler Stephenson

Thank you kindly and cheers!

Hi Grey – keeper trades. Which side you like for each one?:

1) Trout/Abrams/Jazz for Acuna

2) Langford/Harris for Acuna

3) Langford / Jasson Dominguez / Gil for Acuna

Have a great weekend!

Grey! Sick of Austin Riley on my roster. Looking to deal him and Fry to the guy who lost Realmuto. 1st place guy, pretty great roster. Would someone(s) like Bichette/Teoscar/Ozuna/Steer/Arraez/Olson be good trade targets? Or too much?

Pts OBP and with IP Ks Whip HR against. Dropping Assad (2 start vs SF vs Mets) to activate N.Jones or hold and see how Jones looks first?

Realmutto is on waivers. When ready to activate, would he be an improvement over Fry?

I would also need to drop Scherzer so Realmutto can have a place on my IL. Is this a factor in deciding to claim him?
