I still can’t believe I chose this schlub to be the creeper of the week. What am I thinking? OR maybe, what am I smoking *takes another hit* to conclude that this disappointment can be a creeper? Tehol even started wavering on Domonic Brown this year, and I am here to tell you to go against all your instincts and own him… for the week… or maybe more. Actually, Tehol still has a shrine at home dedicated to the man and has some delight for him again. Really, what kind of contributor would I be if I didn’t talk about Tehol when speaking about Brown? To take it a step further, let me quote the FML (Fantasy Master Lothario) who said this past Friday “As someone who benefited greatly from Brown’s 23-homer 1st half in 2013, let me be the first person to point out that Brown is capable of great things”. This may sound more like a buy than a creep, but when it comes to Brown, lets take it one step at a time. I’ll call him Baby Steps Brown for nowTime to insert my gratuitous What About Bob? clip.

This week, the 6.2% owned lefty Domonic Brown has six games and the blessing of my boss. Seriously man, I picked him and started writing this on Thursday. It’s all good G, we think alike… sometimes. We also think alike with that Buick humping sexual degenerate: the Hitter-Tron, who gave him a $10.4 value for the next calendar week. In those six games, Brown goes against all right-handers on the road. His first series opens in Arizona, which plays more neutral to lefties for power, but is good for extra base hits. I’m hoping his schmotatoness carries over here and onto the next series where I’m chomping at the bit. Miller Park has been tops for home runs this year and over the last few seasons, has been very favorable to lefty power bats. Am I the only one who feels like this isn’t a creeper-type player? Maybe it’s the polarizing effect he has had, or maybe it’s the battered manager syndrome that so many suffered through. He falls out of the creeper norm but at this point we are looking at under owned bats to run with as long as we can. Get Brown in your line-up and hopefully he doesn’t leave a stain on your stats.

My favorite frankencatcher has finally been gobbled up. Goodbye Beef Welington, I’m gonna miss you. You went from 3.5% owned last week to 19.5% as of this writing. I do like John Jaso, even though I have been scratching my head over the first four days of the week when the Rays have a very strange two games. He gets right-handers for 4 of his 5 games with two of those coming at Texas where the Hitter-Tron loves him. One player I want you all to keep an eye on is Josh Phegley. Rock the Vogt has not been bouncing back like I had hoped, and have to wonder if Phegley gets more AB’s.

  • With only seven-and-a-half weeks left in the season, we need to start getting honest with ourselves. Okay, to be honest, we should of started after the all-star break, but since a lot of us are procrastinators and not proactivists (is that even a word?) [Jay’s Note: Nope.] we need to cram now. Go look at your standings and figure out what categories you have a realistic chance of gaining points in. Yes, H2H players, this is for roto-players, because I am a roto player and gear everything I do towards roto. Sorry for the digression… Around number 60 we start getting into players that fall under the “needs based” banner. If you don’t need speed, then pay no mind to the base thieves. If you don’t need power, then pay no mind to the power hitters. Some players here are good all around and obviously don’t fall under the needs based banner, but a large chunk are.
  • I got some hate for my post All-Star break ranking of Jose Abreu, which I’m cool with. I have hate in my name, so I got you man… or lady. Since the All-Star break, he has put up a counting stats line of 14/7/21. The RBI’s are 4th best among all qualified hitters and the homers are 5th. His batting average, which currently sits at .295, hasn’t changed, and if there is one thing I like in my top guys is the propensity to not have long-term slumps. I have been saying all season the hitters on the Sox are better than what they have shown and the giant is waking up in Chi-town.

  • I keep obsessing over Carlos Correa. I only own him on one team and wish I owned him on more. He keeps getting better and will be drafted crazy high next year. If you can crush out of the O-No like that, can you imagine what he’ll be doing when he is Mike Trout’s age in 2019? Damn, this kid is sexy beyond belief. I’m just glad I bought an Astros hat last year to spite all the local Angels fans. Speaking of the Angels, I drove Grey down to the Big A of Anaheim, nowhere near Los Angeles, to watch frequent commenter Teddy Heater throw out the first pitch. Damn, TH got some skills. He grooved it in so well that Arte Moreno gave him props and was tempted to sign him. Way to go Teddy! Our resident Vegan lifestyle enthusiast Militant/Happy Vegans also showed up to throw some Razz support. Great chatting with you Vegans. I look forward to our next hang when we catch up on some more punk rock. Below is Grey, Teddy, and myself at the game. Teddy is holding up his custom made Razzball jersey while Grey and I are in the new Razzball shirts I got made. If you are interested in the new shirts then hit me up in the comments.

    Nice pic! I spotted you guys on tv when they showed a foul ball. Glad Teddy represented Razzball in a dominant way!

    Thoughts on Dickerson and Freeman going fwd? Im ready to drop both schmohawks, but i only have 15moves left for the season….

    Keep up the great work!

      @The G: If this is a redraft league then you can drop Dickerson. With cracked ribs, been hurt most the season, and on a team not contending is grounds to be dropped. Id hold on Freeman til we get a possible time table. With the limit Id be more conservative with freeman.

      Really? Thats awesome. Teddy crushed it

    Great list as always. Any thoughts on dealing Joc for Miggy? Have an outside shot at winning league and getting a big final 6 weeks from someone like Cabrera is likely my only chance at pulling it off. Right now I have a logjam in OF and Pederson sits on my bench. However I can keep Joc for 2 more years at late round value while Miggy would not be keepable. For this year Cabrera would replace Franco at 3rd (and Franco would likely be the late round keeper to replace Joc). Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @tank1: Id want to keep Joc and Franco. I wouldnt o it, try to find another way to win. Batty Calls!!!

      • tank1 says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Thanks. I am leaning in that direction as well (though I have always enjoyed owning Cabrera in the past). Another option would be to pursue Chris Davis though I am not sure the other guy would bite on this offer. Davis has decent keeper value for next year if things do not work out (6th round value) this year. Thanks.

        • J-FOH says:

    Howdy mister j-foh!

    In a h2h points league with a weekly roster are you sitting one or both out of puig & joc pederson.

    If I do that here are options I have ; I could move Hanley Ramirez from DH to OF then move Carlos Santana from bench to DH. Part 2 of this move Adam eaton from utility to OF then add one of these bats for utility slot.

    Alexei Ramirez, Ryan Howard, solarte, Jung ho kang, asdrubal Cabrera, maikel franco.

    Or option 2 leave Han ram at DH & look to move Eaton at OF & then add an OF out of these available ones: melky Cabrera, Aaron hicks, randal Grichuk, Dom brown, shin soo choo, David peralta, Andre eithier, Josh Hamilton & lastly Gerardo parra.

    Thanks man! Enjoy your Sunday

        Could use a power boost, maybe some speed as well. Currently after tonight I’ll be tied for 1st in the division & tied for the top record in the league at 13-4. This upcoming matchup (starts tomowrow) is week 18 & goes to week 21.

        Are you sitting both young joc & puig? Or just one of them?

    Looking stately gentlemen! I am pretty sure I saw you guys during the elephant debate a few nights ago, you handled those hardball questions very well! When Megan Kelly asked Grey about his Stressburg trade he handled it with dignity and said his best days are coming. Grey, you must be a prophet too! Can’t wait to see what you write about his recent start! I hope it’s the seat of a trend…

    In my 10 team H2h points league what do you think of this trade? Format is pitcher friendly:

    I give – Altuve, Richards, Papelbon, Puig
    I get – Bumgarner and Kipnis

    I can pick up Odor for 2b for now until Kipnis gets back. I can also replace Papelbon with Osuna and have a stacked OF as it is… What do you guys think? Thanks!

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Timmah R: I dont like it, I wouldnt count on Kipnis and I worry about Bum as the innings keep going up. He pitched a lot last year. I would rather have Odor than Kipnis already. In a ten team you should be able to make your team better thru the FA pool

    Great stuff, Mr. FOH! Again, it was great to meet Grey and you last night. For what it’s worth, if anyone passes on the opportunity to hang out with you guys, they are just cheating themselves. The incredible baseball acumen that comes from this site is only exceeded by the friendliness of people like Grey and yourself. And Teddy Heater looks like he could pitch on half the teams in MLB.

    I get: Cole Hamels

    I give: Miguel Sano

    Pitching is a major need for my team. Ten team keeper league, I have a lot of power hitters. Is this trade a no-brainer?

    Thanks for ruling hard!

      @Sing us a Vogelsong You’re the Pineda Man: I want to say yes but with it being a keeper I need to know a few things

      1) how many years kept and is it round value or dollar value
      2) who are these other power bats
      3) any chance you can get a younger arm that doesnt look like they are going down the regression road

        @J-FOH: It is a keep forever league with no values at all.

        As for power bats: Arenado, Abreu, Stanton, Springer, Miggy, Correa, Wong (relative power for a 2b), Grichuk, and Tucker. I’m somewhat treading water until the majority of these guys come back.

        I could attempt to grab Keuchel from the owner. He is in definite rebuild mode, where I’m looking to solidify a playoff position to make a run when/if my roster is healthy.

        I didn’t even mention I own Dickerson still. I’ve had some brutal luck this season.

          @Sing us a Vogelsong You’re the Pineda Man: Current keepers for next year:

          Abreu
          Miggy
          Arenado
          Correa
          Stanton
          Springer
          Dickerson
          Arrieta
          Harvey

          And either Severino, Sano or whatever arm I get for Sano.

            @Sing us a Vogelsong You’re the Pineda Man: Update: I’d have to sweeten the pot to get Keuchel. He also has Carlos Martinez (but he might not be able to help now).

            Send Wong and Sano for Keuchel? Is that reasonable?

    Hey, Jack Full! Jimmy Nelson or Taijuan Walker ros? Thanks!

    So I unexpectedly landed Anthony Rendon in my keeper roto league right before the trade deadline. What do we think of him ROS? Does he flash any of his 2014 tools? I’m not expecting too many SB’s ROS due to his early season issues.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @M: he could do something but I would keep my expectations low for any speed and power. I believe he had a knee injury which also greatly effects power. The other counting stats might be decent. Think a Howie Kendrick Daniel murphy type player.

        @J-FOH: yea think it was an MCL issue, thanks for the insight!

    If you were pretty much a lock for a mid playoff seed, would you consider trading Scherzer for, say, carrasco and Carlos Gonzales in a head to head points league?

    C Perez
    1b pujols
    2b kipnis dl. Forsythe
    3b Seaver
    Ss Desmond
    Of a jones
    Of Bautista
    Of pollock
    Utility Abreu
    Utility Sano
    Bench p. Tucker
    P scherzer
    P. Areieta
    P Lester
    P wacha
    P Nola
    P buerhle
    P Robbie Ray
    Rp tolleson
    Rp Allen

    Thanks!

    Not sure what to make of EE missing Sunday’s game v the Yankees. CBS says his thumb but haven’t seen anything else. Would you take a shot with either Smoak or Colabello at home v all RHP and sit EE?
    Need a 3rd OF this week…Bruce mired in one of his infamous 0 fer slumps which can last weeks at a time, Paulsen with 4 games @ the Mets, facing the big 3 plus a LHP and then goes home to Coors to face 3 SD RHPs, or grab a Kris Davis, Maybin, Tucker, Tori, Eaton, Burns, Byrd, DeShields, Choo or Rasmus of the WW. 6×6 OBP

    Just came by to say what’s up and also I just learned that over the last 30 days Kris Bryant has a .608 OPS with a 35% K rate….2016 sleeper???

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @royce!: He’s no Brad Miller time. He’s also hit home runs and stolen bases.

      • royce! says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Just like Jimmy Rollins! Who has an OPS .169 higher than Bryant over the same period. Dammit! Now I feel like I have to pick up Rollins. That was not the point of this exercise!

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @royce!: high K guys will have slumps. Im still confident his numbers at the end will be good. That skill set is too good

          • royce! says:
            (link)

            @J-FOH: Yes, but I don’t own him anywhere, so I prefer to delight in his suffering.

            • J-FOH says:

              @royce!: and I can appreciate that kind of behavior

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @royce!: Rollins has been performing well lately. So he should be owned

    These are very helpful each week, thanks for the effort!

    Currently rocking Schwaber and Darnaud in my 2 catcher spots in my roto redraft. Would you drop Darnaud for Jaso? Really just looking for AVG, a bonus would be some fair counting stats. Darnaud hasn’t looked too hot since returning from the DL…

    I had an owner accuse me of insulting him with trade offers. I won’t say which side is which but would like opinions on which side you think is the better offer and if fair. It’s a keeper league and round in () if can be kept. It’s a 3 player keeper, so the only likely keepers in any of these trades are Kershaw, Machado, Dozier, Schwarber

    Trade 1
    a. Kershaw (2), Soler (2)
    b. Machado (6), Lester (10)

    Trade 2
    a. Kershaw (2), Cano, Schwarber (23)
    b. Machado (6), Dozier (16), Carlos Martinez (23)

    Trade 3
    a. Kershaw (2), Soler (2), Cano
    b. Machado (6), Dozier (16)

  31. Dan says:
    (link)

    And a couple more

    a. Archer (8) and Rendon (16)
    b. Machado (6)

    Yo. So Dominic didn’t play today. Gonna take him after all.

    Would you DL JoeFer (no room really, well, Miggy is going off it) or drop him and stash say, Alex Gordon on the DL? I gotta say….if I was Miami, I would shut JoeFer down…don’t know why they would bring him out there for September…..

    But I had to drop Matz and someone grabbed and stashed …. sigh. Other pitchers are Kluber, DeGrom, Archer, Carrasco, Corbin.

    Going to pick up Jungman. Or would you take Bassit?

    I do not like seeing Betts so low on your list. ;)

    • J-FOH says:

      @greg: drop JoFer grab bassit
