(NOTE: THIS POST WAS RELEASED EARLY THIS WEEK ON OUR PATREON. IT’S $10/MONTH OR $13/MONTH WITH AN EXTRA WEEKLY PODCAST.)

I saw an article in the Denver Post the other day that said something like, “The Rockies should rebuild, and Bud Black is the man to do it.” And I became The Joker. I started tiptoeing down a staircase in bright makeup, twirling and cackling. Then I threw my computer out my window, hit a squirrel, who lawyered up and sued me, taking 51% control of Razzball. Which is why you can now find acorns in the Razzball store. Hope you understand why I have to say nice things about Jeff McNeil, too. Let’s be fair and honest and charitable, Bud Black was a good pitching coach. That the Rockies hired a pitching-first guy in Coors says all you need to know about how dumb that organization is, but rebuild? If Bud could lure Mark Reynolds out of retirement, he would play him over Ryan McMahon, because of his experience. Bud Black is the worst manager in baseball, and, as Quentin Tarantino says, that’s a very impressive feat. I bring this all up, not to crap on Bud, though that’s fun, but to warn you I only half trust him to play Brendan Rodgers. On our Prospectonator, we project every imaginable rookie, based on 162 games played. So, all things being equal, Alex Kirilloff is number one, Ke’Bryan Hayes is number two, but not that far down the list is Brendan Rodgers. He could be even the shallowest of leagues viable. Assuming the Rockies don’t lure back Mark Reynolds. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Francisco Mejia – Someone says anything about Zunino–“ACKCHUALLY, I like Francisco Mejia more.” Yes, hundred percent with red underlines. Zunino does get into these crazy streaks, like frosted-hair Justin Timberlake, but ACKCHUALLY, I like Francisco Mejia more.

Eric Haase – “My grandfather left me these Gregg Jefferies rookie cards, and I was wondering if you had any interest.” “These are great…coasters.” That’s my imaginary grandkids going into Pawn Stars in 2057 talking to Big Hoss. Nonsense aside, Haase has big-time power. He’s a 70-grade power guy, who hit 28 HRs in 102 minor league games in 2019. Also, sounds like Wilson Ramos could be out for a while.

Garrett Cooper – Who’s been super duper? Garrett Cooper. Puttin’ on the hitz. Though, he’s battling a day-to-day injury, so keep an eye on that.

Danny Santana – He should be playing full-time now that Franchy was optioned. Though, Duran should be playing full-time over Dannys. Is that going to happen? Have no idea. Duran is on the Olympic Dream Team with Homer Bailey, Todd Frazier and pitcher, Anthony Gose. An absolute Who’s Who of Where Are They Now. Someone find Kirk Nieuwenhuis, your Olympic dream awaits.

Keston Hiura – Just gave you my Keston Hiura fantasy when he was recalled. It was written on the reverse side of a barn.

Seth Brown – Went back and looked at my Seth Brown fantasy from last year, and here’s my favorite tidbit, “Seth Brown’s minor league stats last year: *fracks fifteen hundred miles into the earth’s core, hikes down into the deepest, darkest cavern that my needless fracking created, realizes I forgot my megaphone, hikes fifteen hundred miles back up while wondering if you could frack all the way to China, when at the surface of earth, grabs a megaphone, then returns back down fifteen hundred miles, finding it an easier go this time because I’ve done the trip once before, when I reach the deepest, darkest cavern in the earth, I blow into the megaphone the world’s loudest chef’s kiss* That’s how good Seth Brown’s minor league stats are! In Triple-A, Seth Brown went 101/37/104/.297/8 in 451 ABs.” And that’s me quoting me!

Jonathan Villar – “Hey, this is Gary Cohen and welcome back to Mets baseball. Due to injuries, Jonathan Villar will be playing eight positions today, and acting 3rd base coach. Well, he should have no problems with the signs.”

Edmundo Sosa – Ya know who he reminds me of? Aledmys Diaz, when on the Cards (and kinda still). The Mets ruin everyone; the Cards just find guys.

Taylor Walls – You want Brujan? I want Wander! How about Josh Lowe?! Right, but you’re not thinking about team finances, so here’s Taylor Walls.

Owen Miller – Standard 4020. Don’t know what that is? You need to study the glossary. It’s boring hitters that give two hits in four at-bats and no other stats. It’s how their stats appear in a box score.

Brad Miller – Sticking with the newly established Miller theme, a schmotato by any other name would smell as Brad.

Jurickson Profar – With Grisham out for who knows how long — can Grisham keep his injury stint as brief as a pelican? — the Padres went to the Jurickson store, and they weren’t out.

Akil Baddoo – Wait a humdinger of a minute, Tuffy Rhodes never got hot a second time! Yabba dabba Baddoo has heated up again.

Josh Lowe – Nearly made him the lede, but I figured I’d give y’all a week off from prospecting out of the minors. Yes, Jarren Duran, Vidal Brujan, et al (not the Israeli airline) are still options.

Adam Duvall – His walk-up song is, “If You Don’t Know Me by Now.” Take a hint.

Cornelius Randolph – Finally, the old man from Trading Places is fantasy relevant. So, this is a former-1st rounder by the Phils, who’s been a smoke show in Triple-A. Was hesitant about including Randolph, because he’s not on the 40-man, and might only be 12-team NL-Only worthwhile at this point, but might be a late breakout a’la Trent Grisham. Podcaster Geoff mentioned him to me; now I’m mentioning him to you. For shallower leagues, there’s Roman Quinn, who was just called up.

DJ Stewart – With Hays out and Brandon Hyde unable to get into the stadium parking lot because no one recognizes him, Stewart should be the fill-in, and he’s been hot.

Guillermo Heredia – The Braves took a major hit when they lost Ozuna, but who cares about the freakin’ Braves, this is fantasy! Heredia should see ABs with Ozuna out, and I’m struggling to say something else nice. Um…He’s 30, so maybe he has some wisdom? I don’t know.

Manuel Margot – Looks like 50 Cent, has initials like Eminem, and a manager who makes you want to sing, Cash Ruins Everything Around Me.

JT Brubaker – This is a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to Macy’s.

David Peterson – This is also a Streamonator call. “I want to throw a party, and they say if there’s a lot of people there, more people will show up, so, I was wondering if you have any extra mannequins.”

Paul Fry – Rather than list 5,000 closers no one wants to pick up — Michael Fulmer anyone? Rafael Montero? Hansel Robles? Ryan Stanek? See, there ya go, you have pseudo-closers to grab too. — I’m going to list a few Mr. MRs for your broken winged bullpens. So, Cesar Valdez sucks, but won’t be replaced because the O’s want to trade him. Fry could be the unlikely replacement, and, if not, he’s still great for Ks. The walks do worry me a bit though.

Chad Green – Here’s a Double Whopper with cheese. Green could get saves while Aroldis is sick, and Green throws cheese.

Andrew Kittredge – How long until other teams realize you develop middle relievers, stall all your prospects until they’re ready to explode, then trade for pitchers from the Pirates?

Scott Barlow – His numbers are so butter that ten out of ten Butter-Heads look at Barlow’s stats and think to themselves, “Can I put that on toast?” And those people know real butter! Also, Butter-Heads are not to be confused with Butterfingers or butterfaces.

SELL

Juan Soto – This is brutal. Someone hold me while I write this. Metaphorically! Get off of me! This is a Sell I don’t want to write at all…I’m struggg–Damn, I was typing this by letting the tears coming down my cheek hit the keyboard. There’s no easy way to say this, but Sexy Dr. Pepper appears injured. He’s not right. Something is so wildly off with his swing path, that I can only imagine he’s subconsciously altering his swing to take pain off his shoulder. Either that or the offseason seminar on Swing Mechanics with Yandy Diaz was not a good idea. His Exit Velocity, xBA and xSLG aren’t bad. It’s just his Launch Angle is goofy. Cancel the Green Thumb Guy, Soto will kill your weeds. I’m emphasizing here to not sell him low. Don’t sell him for a summer job digging holes in the desert for the mafia, but I would look at our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.

in the future there will be a “behind the career of t.chatwood” in it we’ll find out 2 things, one, that after the 2018 season he went to a hypnotist who tricked him into thinking he was a pitcher without a completely horrible BB rate. the hypnotist’s mind spell had a shelf life that ran out may 30th 2021. the second thing is far stranger; he has access to voodoo dolls of his managers, rather than poke them with needles or knives or burning them, he sticks little barbie sized headphones on them and sends in a track that constantly reads: ” chatwood is good, leave in chatwood at his current role, and do not change chatwood’s role for he is good”

Hopefully it is a mental thing and he can trash the Mets and we can feel better?I just traded for Snell last week (sold Gallo) and this was my first week with him =) WELCOME TO THE TEAM SNELL! haha. I feel like baseball is even harder to predict then normal this year and with the huge amount of injuries and underperformances I don’t even know what to do anymore!

Want to know the biggest pissoff I faced these last 2 weeks? So weekly league I start Graveman last week who gets 0 appearances and then goes on covid. I Lost in svs/hlds and wins both by 1 because and he had only 1 RP Hudson who got a win + 4 svs/hlds…. This week Graveman is off with covid and again I am vs 1 RP user who happens to own Montero who now ties my 3 RP with 3 svs/hlds because of course he is now the only late inning option.

What a frustrating year!

Happy Sunday Grey,

11 team league 6×6 with holds and OPS the extra categories. We use Quality Starts instead of Wins. We have daily roster moves so I can plug in my pitcher whenever they start.

C Mercedes 1b Vlad 2b Segura SS Tatis 3b Machado CI Alonso MI Lindor OF: Acuna, Bellinger, Kyle Lewis, Kiriloff, Schwarber Util: Baez

SP: Bieber, Lynn, Means, Trevor Rogers, Mahle
P: Cease, Victor Gonzalez
RP: Reyes, Romano, Clase

B: Luis Castillo, Kyle Hendricks and Alec Bohm
IL: Luzardo, Plesac, Conforto

If I keep Luzardo stashed on my IL it will freeze my roster. I have a couple of options before that happens. Which of these would you do?

1. I can trade Segura for Diego Castillo and cut Bohm for either Brendon Rodgers or Wong.

2. Instead of trading for a reliever I can try to cut Bohm for one of these players: Barlow, Manoah, Tyler O’Neill or incase nobody on my teams goes on the IL in the next week or so to switch with Luzardo I can stash Brujan or Franco before my roster is frozen. Thanks!

I did the Castillo trade I can always cut him clase or another reliever to get space for luzardo and get brujan when he is up to replace the second baseman (Wong/Rodgers) I’ll cut bohm for.

1 If I try to upgrade a reliever would you rather have clase or Castillo?

2 Would you cut any of my pitchers for Monoah in a qs league?

3 O’Neill is on fire I know you said schwarber over O’Neill. Just checking nothing has changed.

Every year my team turns it on the week of my birthday – 2021 is not happening- such a frustrating year cause of all my Buy Lows- have you ever been in this situation before? Is it just one of these years where you need to go down with the ship instead of swapping out the underperformers?

Over last couple of weeks I’ve noted in comments Soto is not right and might be time to sell and each time you agreed. Breaks my heart too Grey. You know who’s next on the sell list? Mookie. Bum shoulder, wonky back…on his way to the worst season of his career. Can’t catch up to the smoke cause of all of his nagging injuries and pitchers are throwing faster than ever. Not exactly a recipe for success. Hate to say it, but he’s the next guy for your sell list.

I’ll tell him. He is a legend in his own mind. Never liked him never will. More for personal reasons. He was born and lived with a silver spoon in his mouth and a gold one in other place. Team players actually fell for his poor pitiful Mookie saga and all staged a protest to not play baseball. He is so lame he takes a knee for the National Anthem. Is Mookie upset because he may or may not be related to the current/former Duchess of Sussex (now bff with Oprah) and not the Queen, or that he has relatives that played in and still in MLB? Long time girlfriend, had child and three years later decides the statute of limitations is up on how long he can hold off marrying the mother of his child. Wtf?
Why does his sorry ass get sympathy from his entire team? Good thing he has a back-up. Bowling… He lives in the same county as I do. I will protest his statue being built and placed in the town square in Franklin, TN,
