Oh no, I feel my alter ego B. Fire coming on for Bryan Reynolds, The Rap:

Fantasy Master Lothario, don’t abbreviate,
Don’t flip giant index cards like INXS that rhyme with hate, procreate or Kate…
& Allie! Like, oh my God, gag me with the spoon,
Valley! That Indian Pirates pitcher’s name wasn’t Rajneeshpuram Commune,
Ma Anand Sheela! With rhymes on both sides of the comma,
Tequila! Pee-Wee Herman knocking bikes over, oh, the trauma,
Center? Nah, Bryan Reynolds is a left fielder on the Pirates who’s been hitting for the last few weeks.  There’s a chance he flames out, but Reynolds did have five homers in only 13 games of Triple-A, then was promoted and began to do the exact same thing in the majors.  It’s not surprising with the two leagues sharing balls.  By the way, this might be the wackiest early storyline. Because Triple-A is using the same balls it doesn’t mean a ton because there are different pitchers in the minors.
Bunch of whiners!

*rubs towel on sweaty forehead* Thank you, thank you.  For my next song, we have a special guest…Lastings Milledge!  Okay, okay, Lastings, you don’t have to high-five everyone in the audience.  Any hoo!  Reynolds has been hitting near-.350 across two levels (Triple-A and majors) and has 10 homers in only 54 games.  He’s a definite buy.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Jorge AlfaroMitch Garver, Josh Phegley, Christian Vazquez.  That’s the order.  Jorge hits ’em Alllll faaaaaaaar-o; Mitch doesn’t kill anyone’s vibe; grab Phegley and cough up a loogie of stats; Vazquez is a marching onward Christian soldier of stats.  Random Commenter, “No love for Pedro Severino?”  Screams for five hours, then…I guess he’s okay.

Howie Kendrick – Howie like me now?!  “I don’t really know you.”  Ah, cool, cool, thanks, Howie, over here deflating me like a far-too-relatistic porcupine balloon animal.

Niko Goodrum – Fun fact!  Niko Goodrum is also what Andy Warhol used to call his homemade label for Bacardi.

Luis Urias – I’ve been spending a lot of time with a voodoo priestess, trying to put a hex on Ian Kinsler.  So far, it’s been for naught, but as Chandelier Bougie tells me, “You can’t make an omelette without breaking some hex.”

David Bote – As Lonely Island names their fantasy teams, “I’m on a Bote!”

Luis Rengifo – This is funny (not funny). Rengifo has been hitting almost exclusively in the nine hole, has only 83 ABs, and has 15 runs.  That would give him roughly 90 runs on the year.  That is an insane amount of runs for a nine-hole hitter.  Know why he’s doing so well for runs?  Maris/Mantle–Excuse me, La Stella/Fletcher.

Renato Nunez – Has been hot for almost a month now, having the most homers in the league since May 15th.  Also, if you own Bote, technically, you’re already in a Renato.

Miguel Sano – Be surprised if Sano doesn’t go south at some point, but he still does have 35+ homer power.  Will we ever see that power?  Your guess = mine.

Kyle Seager – He’s not as good as his brother, Corey, but, for his price, I like Kyle better, i.e., off waivers is a better price than a top five round schmohawk.

Scott Kingery – Just gave you my Scott Kingery fantasy.  It was written while holding onto a ladder that a librarian was pushing.

Colin Moran – Mentioned this the other day, but I think Moran could be more…and better than we’ve ever seen from him.  And that’s me vaguely paraphrasing me!

Addison Russell – He’s a piece of garbage, but that doesn’t affect whether or not I’d own him, and, since he’s hitting, I would.  By the way, I’d have more respect for him if he leaned in. Make your walk-up music, The Beatles, “Run For Your Life” or anything by Eminem about Kim.

Kevin Newman – The Pirates also have a Kevin Kramer in their minor league system.  Now they just need a Kevin Elaine and paint the infield to look like a parking lot, so they could get lost in it.

Avisail Garcia – As mentioned recently, Avisail is a top 25 outfielder on the season, according to the Player Rater.  That he’s not owned in every league is bizzonkers.

Brian Anderson – I’m partially under the belief that all the Marlins are hot because they ran into some poor pitching, but I’m also under the belief that the entire league is poor pitching and I’m also under the influence.  WRITE ALL OF IT!  Sorry, I’m angrily transcribing this to my intern.

Garrett Cooper – This is interesting (to me). I like Cooper a lot more than Anderson, but Anderson is owned in nearly 25% of leagues, and Cooper is owned in less than 2% of leagues.  Of course, these are ESPN ownership numbers, which are written on a piece of paper that comes out of their copier, and all of their copier paper is run through the machine once while Matthew Berry scans his ass.

Myles Straw – Single-use plastic straws are being outlawed, but single-use Myles Straw are here for speed.

Randal Grichuk – Say what you want, but Grichuk shows great respect for the game of baseball, when, after each home run, he places a cape on the ground first, then lays his bat on top of it.

Jose Leclerc – The Apartheid South Afrikaner, Leclerc, should be closing in Texas as soon as this weekend, if you were to listen to Steve Winwood, but he’s been saying it since Roll With It.

Luke Jackson – With Kimbrel’s signing in Chicago, Jackson gets a bit more rope in Atlanta.  Wouldn’t shock me to see the Braves trade for someone in July, but as Sir Alec Guinness said at the River Kwai, “Luke, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.”

Ryan Pressly – Been a bit remiss not mentioning Pressly at all this year, his peripherals (0.64 ERA, 10.2 K/9) are so goofy, that they go into an interview for the Goofy job opening at Euro Disney and are instantly hired.

Zac Gallen – His numbers in Triple-A make me think he’s going to win a Cy Young within three years.  Not joking.  Not sure when he’s being promoted, but it could be any day now, Annie Potts.

Framber Valdez – With Corbin Martin getting expelled after the whole “Corbin Martin graduates” protest outside of his high school, Framber is worth grabbing in every league, but this is more of a Streamonator call for this week.  One note of caution, Framber might not be fully stretched out, and Streamonator is dialing you right now because it’s lonely and wants to chat. Don’t answer the phone.

Trevor Cahill – This Streamonator call is a real trust fall.  Like the trust fall the Streamonator makes into a pillow fort because it has no one to catch it.  So sad!

SELL

Austin Riley – NOOOOOOOOOOO*trailing off*ooooooooooooo…. Those aren’t ellipsis at the end, they are tiny O’s.  For those skimming this, Altuve has not been traded to the Orioles, not what I meant by tiny O’s. It is with much regret that I need to inform you that Austin Riley is playing a scooch over his head.  For a thorough breakdown of why Austin Riley is overperforming Son did a solid breakdown.  Since he wrote that, Riley’s BABIP has dropped nearly sixty points.  Dot dot dot.  In four days!  Not saying I’d trade Austin Riley for a pack of tofu-based frankfurters called Not Dogs, but I would check out our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.

NL only, bid how much on keuchel (or at least how much to price enforce if the current bid is 30, i have 63/100 left, kimbrel is already drafted and owned, bruce i just won for 31) if my other pitchers are (QS over wins, holds added, h2h 10 team)
SP: pab lop, mahle, lester, stressbird, castillo, davies, lucchesi, matz
RP (4 slots): urias, baez, V2, j.alvarez (the monkey is straight up wrong on hammer being ahead of him, j.alvarez has been used with the 7th inning leads hammer when behind albeit close)
DL: k-rob, steckenrider
NA (1) gallen

i’m thinking to price enforce fairly heavily here, the owner that open bid 30 i’ve never seen in 3 years back off of a bid once he’s bid (we do message board vickrey till a specified time, people can retract/change till the last minute: if nobody else bids anything the guy who bid 30 wins for 1). lots of other guys wait till near last minutes.

probably depends on how many positions start (i.e. multiple utils, MI or no etc). also @ COL coming up AND vs lefties i think 4 out of next 7 (he’s been starting even more last few days than just lefties, but depth charts officially shows him the lefty sided guy). also with all drops, who would you be dropping him for (this last is always the most important part)

Hi Grey,

Sorry to bug you. 12 team Dynasty keep all, 2 players at each position, 5 outfielders. OPS added.

My Nola for his Castellanos and Neris.

I would move Hoskins to 1B for Dietrch who I would waive. Neris would help my ratios and saves, still have Quintana and Hamels on reserves with Cease and Gallon.

I also have Springer and JUP on the DL. First place team by a little.

Thank You!

Being mindful of opponent and home/away of course, does two of Peacock, Fried, P Lopez, Plesac or just stashing Gallen or Cease in an 11 tm roto keeper signal a must-own? I could stream but it is like .25 or .50 cents per transaction in our league so factoring that in.

Bruce is still a free agent, and I was wondering if you like him ROS over any of these guys or should I hold? He’d be acting as a utility player. Thanks!

-Franmil

Musgrove back in the circle of trust? Starts @ Atl and @ Miami.
My other options are picking up one of Junis/Duffy vs Detroit or Bassit vs Seattle.
My SPs are Buehler, Montas, Heaney, and Gibson all going once and streaming Martin Perez for two starts.
40 inn. Minimum H2H and I usually try to plan 7-8 starts so I need to pick one of those guys mentioned above.

Grey: Getting mollywhopped this week as my 2-3 week slump finally caught up with me… Here is my team, where do I need to course correct? I just picked up Yordan and dropped Alvarado, so I have 2 bench spots right now, my first drop is probably Matt Carpenter for a SP

C- Contreras
1B- Bellinger
2B- Mondesi
3B- Senzel
SS- Lindor
OF- Betts, Benintendi, Dahl
UTIL- Story
B- Yordan Alvarez, Matt Carpenter

SP- Fried, Marquez, Hendricks, Lester, Flaherty
RP- Romo, Neris, Holland, LeClerc, Strop, Parker
DL- Glasnow

As you can see, my pitching has been an absolute shit show. I am guessing I should probably pick up Matz for his home start v. STL and drop Matt Carpenter?

The categories that have been losing on the offensive side have been HRs, RBIs, and Ks – apparently as a team, these guys strike out at roughly a 30% clip and barely hitting 10 HRs a week – I’m wondering if this is just a prolonged slump or the reality of my team.

On the ptiching side, I’m losing Ls, ERA, WHIP, and K/9 on the regular, Saves is a weekly battle since I can’t seem to catch a break there.

Hey Grey.

Trying to dial-in possible rotation adjustments. 10 team H2H, max 7 SP but players considered RP or RP/SP that start give me extra rosterable starts as they aren’t considered “SP.”

Current rostered players that count as SP:
Verlander
Ryu

Matz
Canning
Lucchesi
Eflin
E. Rodriguez

1) Is the way I ordered 3-7 in-line with how you think of them?

2) Guys I could add:
Framber Valdez
Pivetta
Gallen

Any add/drop combos you’d suggest here? Thinking E.Rod for Framber currently, but intrigued by Pivetta.

Fun story – I picked up Didi too soon. Needed roster room when Springer went down & dropped him for Riley. That’s worked out well.

Just saw the news that Yordan is coming up tomorrow – thought, “maaaaaaan, that lucky dbag, now he’s got both.”

I checked anyway & lmao because he dropped Yordan to add Didi. I guess he figured he wouldn’t get called up at all if he didn’t when Spring went down.

So it’s like I traded with him. Hopefully Yordan stays up when Springer comes back.

10-team, 6×6 (holds and OPS) categories league, each team can keep up to 8 players without penalty

Would you trade my Machado and Flaherty for his Betts?

I’m currently right in the middle of the standings and should still be able to compete this year. Betts would replace Machado on my keeper list.

Current roster (* = guys I’m currently planning on keeping):
C – Contreras
1B – Abreu
2B – Fletcher
3B – Bregman*
SS – Machado *
MI – Mondesi *
CI – Bryant *
OF – Acuna*
OF – Eloy*
OF – Dahl
OF – Starling
U – Ohtani
IL Bats – Correa*, Scooter

P – Sale*
P – Treinen
P – Wheeler
p – Tanaka
P – Pressley
P – Marquez
P – Greinke
P – Canning
Bench Arms – Flaherty, Woodruff, Leclerc, Darvish, Luke Jackson, Diego Castillo, Jimmy Nelson, Gant

Thanks in advance!

Hi Grey (and Razzball Community),

I am on the same page as Grey regarding Keuchel. I too believe his K/9 is unimpressive, and he will be pitching against some tougher lineups albeit NL ones. However, I am in an NL-Only league, which ups his value verses being a Mixed-League.

I am in a unique position in my league. I have the #1 WP, and Keuchel would give me the opportunity to make a deal to get another hitter. I was hoping to wait for a strong AL SP or Hitter to be traded in the next 4-6 weeks to get me through the dog days and play-offs. Keuchel might not be ready for another 3 weeks, so I would be holding him in a streamer spot. I already have to wait for Kimbrel to get game-ready, and I have Hampson NA. I really don’t want to drop Stripling or Newcomb just yet, as I see value in both of them as relievers.

I’m curious as to what you (Grey), and the RB community would do if it was their team. I’m currently in 1st Place by 3 games, and I play the 2nd place team next week, followed by the 4th place. I wouldn’t have Keuchel either way, and could use the extra spot to Batty Calls and streaming SPs. It’s head-to-head, so I am okay if week to week finding using the Batty Call to put in place for Hampson (NA) at utility.

A) Pass on Keuchel, and wait for my pick of the AL guys that are coming over. Let the 2nd place team (#2 WP) claim him and eat up a roster spot. He currently has Gausman, so he’d lose a starter eventually.
B) Put in the claim for Keuchel, and start talking with teams about a trade for a hitter. Who is a fair bat for one of Keuchel, Eflen, or Musgrove. I would need to solidify this by tomorrow as Keuchel comes off of waivers on the 10th. I’d drop Ponce de Leon for him.
C) Pick up Keuchel and own him since it’s NL-Only and figure it out as I go.
Other) ???

I’m leaning A as B doesn’t seem likely to happen, and I don’t want to burn my #1 WP on meh, bleh, and blah. Also, even though this is a keeper league, Keuchel couldn’t be kept for the $1 he was drafted for since his rights were dropped, so there’s even less incentive to do pick him up for me. However, this is a tough decision, and I value your insight. THANKS!!

Is Skaggs a streamer in RCL or worth a roster spot?
If so drop him for one of RP Parker, Givens, Buttrey or Diego (top 2 please since some are on waivers)

Hope you are having a great weekend …finally sunny & warm(ish) here in Brew town
