The fans that arrived early yesterday at Nationals Park were puzzled to find what appeared to be a show on HGTV.  The newest Property Brother, Michael Blazek, the Brewers pitcher, opened a box from Ikea, and sat at home plate for six hours during the pregame, assembling something.  At one point, he screamed to the heavens about being screwed, but Bryce Harper (3-for-5, 3 runs, 4 RBIs and his 26th and 27th homers) realized Blazek wasn’t saying he was screwed, he needed a screw the box was missing.  Ryan Zimmerman (2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 21st and 22nd homers) had a fix, they could use Dusty’s toothpicks to hold together Blazek’s contraption.  Then Anthony Rendon (2-for-4, 2 runs and his 21st homer) had a brilliant idea.  The twine holding together the Nats’ bullpen could be used to hold together Dusty’s toothpicks.  Brian Goodwin (3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer) and Wilmer Difo (2-for-4, 2 runs and his 3rd homer) were the first ones to the plate to see what Blazek had constructed.  It was a bit shoddy in places, but it was holding up.  Pulling back, we reveal that Blazek had built a baseball tee to place all his pitches on.  All of these guys are either owned or are Wilmer Difo, with the exception of Brian Goodwin.  He has three homers since the All-Star break, and has been cemented in the leadoff spot (for reasons only Dusty can explain).  Won’t help you on average, but has a solid base of speed and power that could help in deeper leagues while he’s leading off, and especially when hitting off a tee.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Lewis Brinson – 1-for-3, and his 2nd homer, and 2nd homer in the last two days.  I’m guessing he’s about six hours away from being announced as the new Brewers’ leadoff man.  He’s also about four hours from being in my afternoon Buy column.  Times are subject to change depending on when you read this.

Dan Jennings – 0 IP, 1 ER, as he was traded to the Rays.  Wow, the White Sox really want Tyler Clippard to be the closer.  I guess Rick Renteria could also go to Jake Petricka.  Though, best thing Petricka has ever done is glasnost.

Lucas DudaRays also acquired this piece of Duda.  People get euphoric when a player is traded, like suddenly they’re good.  I hate to be a buzzkill, but Duda’s garbage.  They can’t possibly play him against lefties, and would be fools to with Trevor Plouffe, Tim Beckham and others that could slide in vs. lefties.  Though, since Plouffe is french for the sound poop makes when it hits toilet water, the thought of him platooning with Duda has me giddy.  Plouffe goes the Duda-mite!

Chris Archer – 6 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 3.80.  There was a hint of wanting to bench him yesterday in Yankee Stadium, and maybe some of you did, but I feel at a certain level of pitcher, you need to just start them everywhere.  For better or worse, until awful xFIP do us part.  Archer’s in that class that I’d just start.

Evan Longoria – 2-for-5 and his 16th homer, hitting .275.  Not to be a Negative Nelly when someone does something good, but as long as you have less homers as Brett Gardner, you need to sit down.

Corey Dickerson – 2-for-5 and his 19th homer, hitting .304.  Someone must’ve heard all the comments recently about dropping Dickerson.  See, now ya done got him mad.

Alex Colome – 1 IP, 1 ER and his 5th blown save.  Don’t think he’s in real dangerous in losing his job, but the Rays aren’t stocking their middle relief corps for s’s and g’s.

CC Sabathia – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 3.66 vs. the Rays, who swear to God they are a playoff contender.  God bless them, but the Rays don’t really feel like a playoff team, do they?  Am I way off here?  I mean, CC’s garbage under Al Gore’s seat cushion, so this was no indication.  By the way, went to a screening of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth sequel last night with a Q&A of Al afterwards.  I didn’t get a chance to ask a question, but I had it all lined up, “If there’s global warming, how do you explain Los Angeles being filled with so many snowflakes?”

Gary Sanchez – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer.  I also had another question for Al lined up, “I know uneaten food accounts for 75% of greenhouse gases, so have you taken it upon yourself to rid the world of uneaten food by eating it?”

Brett Gardner – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 18th homer, hitting .261.  Gardner has 18 homers and the balls aren’t different?  That’s the real inconvenient truth, isn’t it, Manfred?!

Robert Stephenson – 4 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 7 BBs, ERA at 7.86.  More like Robert Loses-Control Stephenson!  Amiright?!  Or am I right-right?  Forget it, I need a nap.  *three seconds later claps hands*  I’m back!

Chris O’Grady – 7 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.68.  Down in South Jersey, Rudy’s cursing my name for talking him out of streaming O’Grady.  Stream-o-Nator liked it, but O’Grady faced the Reds last time out and looked terrible.  Though, this start was at home, and, well, as Forrest Gump said, shizz happens.

Derek Dietrich – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer, and 5 RBIs the previous night, though everyone knocked in runs on Wednesday for the Marlins.  Could be a rising schmotato, might be worth a monocle on a cyclops, but I wouldn’t drop anyone too valuable.

Dominic Smith – Could be called up at some point for the Mets to replace the vacated Duda (ewww).  Smith looks like a James Loney clone — bleh power, no speed, solid contact skills.  I didn’t put Smith in my Buy column, because who knows with the Mets and their call-ups, but grab him in deep leagues if you need batting average.

Chris Flexen – 3 IP, 3 ER in his first major league start.  There were some people in the comments talking up this prospect the last few days, and, now I’m thinking Terry Collins might’ve been in the comments the last few days.

Manuel Margot – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 7th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  He’ll be in this afternoon’s Buy column, but you don’t need to wait for that.  Margot and grab him!

Jose Abreu – 2-for-4 and his 17th and 18th homers, hitting .297.  After the game, the White Sox said, “We’re not fielding offers on Abreu.”  Then Abreu said, “Then why’d I homer twice?”  Then the White Sox said, “Because you are committed to helping us rebuild.”  Then Abreu said, “I’m sick of comprendo’ing you, I go listen to Tidal.”

Kyle Schwarber – 3-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 16th and 17th homers.  He’s still hitting .191, but imagine how many home runs he’d have if he played every day and wasn’t demoted earlier this year.  Like a trillion!  Okay, maybe only a handful more, but still that’s a lot for someone who supposed was struggling.  He might actually be undervalued next year.

Anthony Rizzo – 2-for-4 and a slam (24) and legs (6).  HR and SB to the Rizzo!

J.D. Martinez – 1-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 20th homer, and 3rd homer in the last two games.  Just Dong because someone has to!

Zack Godley – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.06.  I own him in one mixed league, and let me be the first to tell you it hasn’t been as easy as his ERA shows.  He’s coming off two straight games of nasty as in bad and bad as in bad and not bad as in good.  His peripherals are solid though, and that’s why I’ve been holding him.  It’s a 15-team mixed league, for what it’s Werth.

Luke Weaver – 5 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.50.  C’mon, give Jack Flaherty a chance!

Trevor Bauer – 8 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 5.25.  No matter what the Stream-o-Nator says, if you trust Bauer in his next start, he will give up at least six earned in four innings.  That is my promise to you.

Carlos Santana – 1-for-4 and his 13th homer, and third homer this week.  Guess he didn’t like me calling him Carlost Season.

J.C. Ramirez – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 11 baserunners (6 BBs), 4 Ks, ERA at 4.29.  Jesus Christ Streamer Ramirez will never be confused with his cousin, Jesus Christ Superstar Ramirez.  “My tamales will be te amo of your life!  And you will enjoy my Spanglish.”  That’s Jesus Christ Superstar Ramirez.  Seems like a good guy.

Kendrys Morales – 2-for-4, 3 runs and his 19th and 20th homers, and 3rd homer in the past two days.  I almost mentioned Morales two days ago, but he was so cold, that I didn’t bother.  Now that he has three homers in two days, he’s obviously heated up.  Morales of the storys?  Yes, that it is.  *thinks if that makes sense, decides onto the next blurb*

Josh Donaldson – 2-for-5 and his 10th homer, hitting .242.  I told you to avoid drafting him.  I told you to sell him about two weeks into the season right before he returned.  I told you repeatedly don’t get involved with Donaldson this year.  You didn’t listen, did you?  Aw, what a shame.  I’m going to go onto eBay, bid a penny on the world’s smallest violin, and, if I win it, I will play it just for you!

Marcus Stroman – 4 2/3 IP, 3 ER, EAR at 3.08.  The guy who hit Marcus Stroman the hardest?  Of course, Marcus Semien (3-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI).  Too bad there isn’t a Marcus Strokeman to bridge the gap.

Sean Manaea – 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.82.  I’ll admit to a blindspot.  I keep benching visiting starters in Toronto, and the Blue Jays, well, they’re the Blew Jays, the So-Through Jays, the Blue Days, but they are not good.

Santiago CasillaA’s said they could replace Casilla at closer.  With who?  Blake Treinen (1 1/3 IP, 1 ER) who promptly blew yesterday’s save?  Yeah, he’s garbage.  The most revealing thing about this announcement by the A’s is they said they could replace Casilla rather than their usual move of trading him to another team.  “How much to give us Casilla?” asks Dusty Baker while GM Mime Rizzo stands next to him waving his hands, pointing to the Mercury News headline, ‘Casilla To Be Replaced.’  Dusty lowers the phone, “Not right now.  I’m trying to trade for Casilla.”  GM Mime Rizzo builds box around himself and cries.  Aw, sad Mime Rizzo.

    c. John Rambo Quote of the day for July 28-30

    [Scene change, Mousa Ghani leads Rambo on the way to the fort where Colonel Trautman is being held.]

    Mousa Ghani: ‘This is Afghanistan. Alexander the great tried to conquer this country, then Genghis Khan, then the British. Now Russia. But Afghan people fight hard. They’ll never be defeated. Ancient enemy make prayer about these people. You wish to hear? It says, “may God deliver us “from the venom of the cobra, “teeth of the tiger, and the vengeance of the Afghan. You understand what this means?’

    Rambo: ‘That you guys don’t take any shit?’

    Mousa Ghani: ‘Yes. Something like this. We go now. To the north are many caves. We will travel through them. This leads to the valley of five lions. In ancient days, the Afghan king was asked to send 500 warriors into battle. He said, “only five.” His greatest five. And they won. He said, “it’s better to send five lions than 500 sheep.” What do you think?’

    Rambo: ‘The king was lucky. How much longer to the village?’

    Mousa Ghani: ‘About two hours.’

    d. Have a nice weekend.

    Sir Grey!

    In our very closer minded league I can see losing Rosenthal and Clippard. I still have Osuna/Davis and Neris so not all is lost in the save department.;-)
    Having said that, I just picked up Blevine as a potential closer.
    Who would u see as other potential new closers?
    Vizcaino (Atl)/Greene (Det)/Rogers (Min)/Treinen (Oak)/Yates (SD) are already on other rosters. Who to pick up from the Marlins for instance or do u see any other potential save guys?

    I’am also waiting on secret special shoes so steals can go up in the game (for my team;-)), I badly need them. Having said that, I picked up Granite. Good move or drop him (or Altherr or Herrera) for Mr. Margot.

    Many thanks as always as I’am heading for the coast here in Holland for a week of vacation let’s hope we can get some sun.

    Namaste Grey

    So in my league people kept dropping OF’s and I kept picking them up. I picked up Brinson today and had to drop one of my streaming pitcher. Problem is I do need to stream pitchers.

    I have a logjam of Outfielders and its a keeper league with VERY FEW trades in the league. I dont think there was a trade at all this season. Its really that bad.

    I have sent a few trades already but no response.

    So I will have to drop one of these

    Pham, Margot, Zimmer, Brinson ,Clint Frazier, David Peralta Jackie Bradley and Polonco( in DL spot)
    I need to drop at least one these if not two. I already have Trout too.

    Who do I drop? Thank youu!

    Drop LoMo in a league that has a little higher emphasis on power?

    Margot, B. Lewis and Zimmer best available

    • mcmi11ions says:
      (link)

      @msh2404: If the league emphasizes power why are you dropping LoMo for low power speed guys?

      • msh2404 says:
        (link)

        @mcmi11ions: Because LoMo has been awful lately – 4/30 with no dingers in last 9 games

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @msh2404: Margot best all-around, but LoMo has the most power like Mcmill said. You know your team construction better.

    • mcmi11ions says:
      (link)

      @msh2404: I should add that I recently dropped LoMo myself because I wanted another streaming spot on my team. My situation though is I have Wil Myers or Jay Bruce that can cover 1B, and my other options for drops were Dickerson or Souza, and I would rather have the all around contributing players. Now I’m toying with the idea of getting Ben Gamel since this is a keeper league and his rate numbers currently are comparable to the rookie seasons that Trout and Pujols put up. I don’t know if I want to drop Souza or Dickerson for him though.

      @Jogon: Healy

      Assuming you are looking to hold the pitchers you listed, I would drop Hernandez. I don’t know if this season is just a down year or a sign of things to come, but he isn’t getting any younger. I would think he has the least upside of any of those guys at any rate.

    • mcmi11ions says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: I read that he was the 10th best prospect in the organization so I got all jazzed for his start when it was first announced, then I read Thursday morning that he was the 22nd best prospect (so I assume he was 10th best pitching prospect) and I was significantly less excited. I don’t know why they didn’t just go with Pill. 40 man roster stuff maybe to protect Flexen from Rule 5, but that’s a ways away. I dunno… Mets being Mets I guess.

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @mcmi11ions: He had excellent numbers in the minors this year and in SD was enough for me. But it was AA. I don’t pay attention to roster/eligibility rules, but I’m hoping it had something to with that and not “Let’s see what he’s got.” Because we have bats down there that we want to see what they’ve got!

        • mcmi11ions says:
          (link)

          @Cram It: I had hopes to, for sure. Players jumping from AA to the majors and having success isn’t a totally foreign concept and yeah, SD may have played a factor in it. Going back and looking at roster stuff, he was placed on the 40-man this past winter so that wasn’t the issue. All the guys in AAA are pitching horribly, except Pill.

    Dallas is back I need some pitching stats today. I have to drop one to activate him.
    Marte, Braun, Owings, D. Santana, Odor. Pitching options to drop would be Clevinger, Berrios, Ed- Rod, Peacock. I hate to drop pitchers. Streaming is necessary in this league so dropping too much pitching talent will hurt me.

      @Your Mom: Its def Peacock if he’s moved to the pen. Of course, you’ll prob not get that info prior to Keuchels start tonight.

      I don’t own him, but it sounds like a lot of people are dropping Owings recently. Does he start for you?

    My 14-team H2H 5×5 league is currently debating changing our categories for next year. Seems like someone is pissed off about a certain category every year so we continuously tinker. So I’m curious what all you razzball readers and writers feel are the best format for H2H.

    We currently have HR, RBI, SB, OBP, and SLG and then QS, SV, ERA, WHIP, and K/9. We have a minimum of 30 innings per week and a weekly transaction limit of 5. No waivers, just straight FA.

    • mcmi11ions says:
      (link)

      @Benintendo64: I prefer AVG and OPS over OBP and SLG, but I’m in three leagues, all H2H and they are all different, one is AVG and OPS, the other just OPS and the 3rd is your OBP and SLG.

      For pitching I like straight up K’s over K/9. I have never seen that used before. I see that K/9 having value as that make RP more worthwhile, but you could do the same thing with Sv+HLD category instead. K/9 should be more of an evaluation of whether I want to add someone rather than a scoring category.

      • Benintendo64 says:
        (link)

        @mcmi11ions: in your H2H leagues do y’all do one win and one loss for the whole matchup or a win and loss separately for each category? We switched to the individual category format this year and even though it doesnt matter in the playoffs, I like it cause it makes the seeding seem more accurate of a teams actual talent level and encourages teams to compete in all 10 categories and not punt

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Benintendo64: I like old school 5×5 — but if your league feels above that, QS, and OBP added for 6×6 — Definitely do FAAB on waivers

      • Benintendo64 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: definitely lobbying for FAAB, and I agree on the classic 5×5 personally but I seem to always be in the minority. Oh well, I still finish top 3 each year so as long as the masses are happy and feed me prize money I’m okay haha

    Grey,

    Nice work as always on the write up. I give it a positive review! Reading this is how I start every day, and it is always entertaining. As someone who used to fill pages by making the font bigger, I don’t know how you can put out so much content and still make it funny and insightful. Well done!

    Pitching this year has been a disaster, not just on my team, but it seems everywhere. An ERA under 5 seems rosterable in all formats. I’ve built a staff of basically $1 waiver guys in a H2H league and the playoffs start in Sept. I’m worried all these $1 guys will be shut down. Are there any of these guys you think will actually be pitching at the end of September?

    Severino
    T. Walker
    Peacock
    Godley
    Nova
    McCullers

    Your insights are appreciated. And don’t worry, if these guys fail I always have my high dollar reliable aces to fall back on: Verlander, Salazar, Maeda. Yeah. That will work out well. I’m never spending more than $11 on an entire pitching staff again.

    Trade question – Head-to-head 8×8 – R/H/HR/RBI/SB/BB/AVG/OPS – W/L/SV/ER/K/ERA/WHIP/QS. It’s an 8 team league though, so does a smaller league with more categories increase the values of hitters or pitchers? I have already traded Kershaw (just in time!) and Abreu for Betts and Harper, now I have an offer of me trading Severino and Robbie Ray for Votto. My other pitchers are Nelson, Hill, Fiers, Porcello, Samardzija, and Rodriguez(BOS).

    Big names from my offense are Harper, Blackmon, Reynolds, Betts, Inciarte and a lot of underperformers – Santana, Marte, Trumbo, Ramirez, Villar, Dozier, Machado and some overperformers like Gennett, Cozart, Pham, and Marwin Gonzalez.

    1 other detail, streaming pitchers gets expensive, we get 25 free moves, 25 at $1, every other move is $2. I typically pick up the occasional 2 start pitcher for the week, and maybe stream if i need to try and win a category at the end of the year. In the past I have streamed quite a bit once it’s playoff time.

    Hey Grey, I asked the questch yesterday about Joey Bats, and was able to ship him out for Zack Godley. Still not sold on Godley, but his peripherals are decent so I’m happy with the result.

    What do you think about Rosario? Seems like he’s almost certain to get called up, but I want to explore the trade market. I have Semien as a placeholder but he’s heating up, should I ship out Rosario while his value is decently high and roll with Semien, or hold on Rosario in case he becomes 2016 Trea Turner? Thanks as always!

      @mrm3711: 12 team standard Y! league, by the by

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Rosario won’t be Trea this year, is this a keeper?

      • mrm3711 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Nope, re-draft. I have Semien at SS and Seager/Hosmer at my two UTIL spots, so if I keep Rosario I will likely have to cut Semien. Also have Treat Urner on the DL but I can shift him to the OF. So, my options are:

        A: Keep both, start Rosario, Semien to bench, lose a roster slot for a pitcher
        B: Keep Rosario, try and trade Semien but likely have to cut him
        C: Keep Semien, trade Rosario.

        Thanks!

    Hello Grey,
    Need some bench OFs. Would you add Margot over Parra in a 10 Team H2H Points League even with the Rocks playing at home next week? I also have Zimmer and Merrifield that could be candidates to drop for a Margot add.

    Unfortch, I have Desmond and Springer who are both f’n DTD, so I need to prepare for worst.

    Thanks much Grey and have a great weekend.
