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.

        Marlins put C Smith on the IL with a hip injury so it’s a moot point. Seems like something the Mets would do when a guy has a few bad outings.

        What do you see for Kingery for the rest of season. I have picked him up twice and dropped him. I like him but his performance always seems a bit boring and Fletcher-like. Do you own him over Fletcher? Thanks!

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          I’d go Fletcher for now

    How close are Avisail and Reynolds ROS?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Avisail’s been a top 25 OF

      • Let's Play Two says:
        (link)

        Ok…thought I would ask, because Reynolds xStats look strong.

        Also, Hoskins has been struggling…hasn’t hit a HR in 10 games or driving in runs.

        Mondesi is struggling lately too…been whiffing a lot.

        Would you sit Hoskins or Mondesi for Avisail until either shows signs of life or keep rolling with them? Avisail is a bench bat for me in a shallow 10-team where I have Yelich, Acuna, Rosario, Hoskins and Mondesi in 3 OF and 2 UTIL slots.

    I had posted a couple of days ago that I had an offer to trade my Yelich for Kershaw/Freeman. Found a last minute buyer instead and traded EE/Boyd for Sale. Thanks Grey for not letting me walk over the ledge.

      No problem

  12. Alvin says:

    This has been a commonly discussed trade…but what are your thoughts on reaching for JoRam with Austin Riley?

    Classic buy low sell high? Or just buying a lemon?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d take JoRam

      • Alvin says:

        Would you take Senzel over Riley?

        His potential seems so high but he’s leaving some on the table right now.

    Hey Grey,

    Happy Buy/Sell day!

    Dropped Chavis to grab Moran, also picked up Kingery when Dozier went down.

    Looks like Bote, Goodrum, Rengifo are available as well, any of these over either of the 2 above? Tomato/tomaaato?

    Thanks!

      (link)

      Was wondering what happened to you

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        Lol – pure speculation, how much press/coverage/speculation would Alvarado be getting if he were playing on the Yankees – just wondering as his situation sounds pretty serious and there’s nothing out of Tampa about it. Originally he was going to be back for the Red Sox series, but as of 2 days ago (according to CBS), that’s unlikely

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, dude just disappeared

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            something serious def happened, and i wouldn’t be surprised if it had something to do with his slump-iness for the past few weeks.

            Also, as a follow up to Ben Zobrist, didn’t a divorce end up killing Wohler’s career? I was pretty young back then, but I could’ve sworn that at one point Wohler’s blamed his divorce on why he sucked in 98

            • Grey

  16. Steve says:

    1. See that you like JoRam over Riley, are you at all concerned that JoRam’s production has fallen off since he was accused of juicing? Not sure if anyone’s done an analysis but he seems to be a different power player since the second half of last season (when he was accused and “clear”ed).

    2. 10t 5×5 redraft, like Domingo or Hicks better ROS? Does Hicks lose PT when Stanton & Judge are back?

    3. C Dickerson is back… in 14T keeper OBP, who’s out between: C Dickerson, Pence. Tapia, Cooper

    4. Have you heard/read anything on why Tucker’s trapped in AAA after mashing 4HR in 3 games?

    Thanks

    Grey, a long post and lot of questions.

    Please keep in mind all the questions are for the same league. Keeper league, roto, 5×5. I’m leading the league and struggling badly in HR, last in the category.

    A. What are your thoughts on Matthew Boyd? Is the expectation that ke can keep what he has done so far? I looked at FIP and xFIP and they look ok. But not sure if those are the numbers to check.

    B. Is giving Moncada + Eloy + Giolito for JoRam + Tucker (Astros) + Boyd too much?

    C. Would B be better if he sends Bieber instead of Boyd?

    D. I have a lot of bats that I consider underperforming: Harper, JD, Hoskins, Machado. You think they will eventually turn it around or would you look to move some of them?

    Thanks as usual

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      A. I’ve gone over him numerous times before B. Don’t love it C. Yes D. I’d trust they come around

  20. Matty says:
    (link)

    I just noticed that the Trade Analyzer and the ROS projection really don’t care for Giolito.
    You seem to like him, Donkey Teeth seems to like him, peripherals don’t seem way out of line.

    Is this the buy low window closing as the computer models catch up with what we’ve seen? Or are we crazy and it’s time to sell based on his sparkling numbers?
    Have a great weekend.

    Is it time to unload Chavis in a keeper league
    Options are

    ~Hypothetical world~
    Say Urias is called up next week. Would you add him and drop Chavis? Chavis is my starting 2nd basemen with no back-up currently in a 12 tm redraft 5×5 OBP league

    ~Reality~
    Would you drop Eloy for Castellanos in same 12 tm 5×5 league? This would be as my one bench OF (Betts, Soto, Dahl are my starters)

    • prey879 says:
      (link)

      Also reason I ask about Urias is I know he’ll be picked up in my league once he gets the call so might not have time to ask question then

      Thanks!

      If Urias is called up i would absolutely drop Chavis. Urias is a much more highly regarded prospect.

    Yeah I’ve been ready to sell Riley for weeks but have him in a keeper. I could probably get something decent for him now but he feels much more valuable either as a future cheap keeper or as a trade piece when some teams throw in the towel and look to acquire some keepers. Here’s hoping he doesn’t crash and burn entirely!

    I have a question and it has nothing to do with buying or selling but I’ve been playing for a few years now and ran into something this week in my matchup I’ve never seen before.

    This is a 12 team h2h redraft yahoo league with standard cats.
    My opponent has Alex Colome who came into a game Wed. evening and blew the save. He gave up a hit, a walk, and 2 ER and recorded 0 outs.
    How does that stat line reflect a pitchers whip and ERA?
    It shows INF in the whip/ERA columns and it doesn’t look like it raised his overall numbers for the week?

    Grey –
    A) Man its getting hard to hold onto Bauer and Marquez at the same time. LOL. I feel like I should ship off at least one of them so they don’t drag down my ratios but once I do they will correct themselves (Marquez’s 2nd half last year). Ryu, Odorizzi, and Castillo can keep me afloat only so long. Would you sell one or just ride it out?

    B) Speaking of Odorizzi, get ready for a novel. some real deep shizz.

    C) Hiura since being sent down is now 4-9 with a 2B and HR; Shaw is 2-7 and sat a game, good job Brewers.

    I could sense both Soroka and Riley coming after listening to the podcast… Not sure I’ll get value from either so hoping for another good start for Soroka tonight. Can you and Rudy make the trade analyzer a paid feature since most of my league can access it and I’m the only one who pays for the tools? It would help my buying & selling a ton.

    Just a quick thought on the paid tools, any DFS player and reader of the site should subscribe. I’ve finally learned my lesson and just use the lineup optimizer without toggling players in and out. The other night it generated Miguel Cabrera as my 1b which i wanted nothing to do with but had gotten beat on taking guys out in the days before. He had 5 RBI’s. You pay for your subscription pretty quickly when utilizing the tools.

    What do you think of Bauer the broken? He says last night that he needs to get healthy. Out of 13 starts only two have been under 100 with one of those at 99. His last three starts, 123, 109, 111. Is he a huge buy right now in the hopes that he gets traded as far from Terry Franconia as possible?

    I live in Baltimore so a quick heads up on the Nunez tone from the city, callers to local sports radio are stating that he should be the cornerstone of the Orioles rebuild. These are the same callers who declared the Orioles contenders after signing Cashner and Cobb last year.

    Thanks for your write up’s & videos – insanely exciting and valuable!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Yup, will go ahead and do that… An extra fifty-hundred dollars!

    Nice to see Reynolds get some attention. I remember mentioning him as a player of interest a couple of weeks ago. Dude can rake.

    Is it that hard for Maddon to keep Bryant/Rizzo/Baez 2/3/4? Wouldn’t it make more sense to play matchups with Schwarber/Almora/Bote in the leadoff spot and leave your studs alone? Hate it when managers overthink things and/or try to prove how smart they are.

      • Big Magoo

        Big Magoo says:
        (link)

        I think the worst part is that, in his mind, a Cubs W would be partially due to his brilliant lineup changes rather than the pitching gem turned in by Hamels. Ego at it’s finest.

    these agents sure are getting pretty useless, in fact costing people money. that’s now:
    keuchel (refuses the 18+ from HOU, gets 13, albeit he did get a 2+month vacation so this might not really be considered a loss on a per inning basis)
    l.lynn (last year refuses BOTH 18+ from STL then later 20 from MIN to later take 10 from MIN)
    mostsuckass (refused 18+ qualifying then takes somewhere in the 8-9 range last year)

    how in the F do these agents ask for their 10-15% after costing their players this much money? there are more examples than these, these are just the ones i can easily think of. kimbrel meanwhile did get really close to what he wanted anyway.

    as now an owner of k-rob (DL) and just added j.alvarez and readded V2 (owned him before when he was starting, cut him when off DL when i heard bullpen, but NOW 8th inning man as PHI has like 6 bullpen guys gone) let’s get us a neris injury. this is NL only, i have no closer at all. if i’m sure V2 is biggest winner of the sera anthony injury i’ll probably drop alvarez for one of the guys moving ahead of bearclaw at WAS town, but for now i got 2 of the 2 PHI holds tonight. holds and saves here. i own neris elsewhere but i was barely too slow earlier in year to neris here.

    14-TEAM OBP, QS, SAVES+HOLDS LEAGUE
    Big trade offer…I hate to trade some stud keepers but I gotta do it to try to win this year, right?
    A.J. Pollock, Ryan Braun, Hector Neris, Carlos Carrasco, Paul Goldschmidt, Jonathan Villar, Jake Odorizzi, Javier Baez, Kris Bryant and Sean Doolittle

    for
    Colin Moran, Victor Robles, Eloy Jimenez and Rich Hill (Robles, Eloy, and Hill are $5 keepers)
    (I would offer to throw in all of these except for two guys for my bench – Odor, Kingery, Brian Dozier, Pedro Baez, Zack Britton, and Framber Valdez)

    Obviously, Pollock and Carrasco can’t help me right away.

    Braun would replace Robles
    Neris would either be on the bench or replace Britton
    Goldschmidt would replace Moran at U
    Villar would replace Brian Dozier
    Odorizzi would replace Hill
    Baez would replace Kingery
    Bryant would replace Eloy in the OF
    Doolittle would replace Pedro Baez

            (link)

            Well, that offer never panned out. If something is too good to be true, it probably is…

            Oh, by the way, I was cracking on you about the recommendation of Chase Anderson after the last start but this one was JUST FINE. Thanks.

            So….an owner who may start looking for keepers has Mookie and Mondesi he cannot keep in our 2-yr keeper lg.

            Who would you offer first (worst?) if you had these three for the next two years at this price? Or would you pass? Mondi would replace either Kingery or Moran and Betts would replace either Moran or Cooper.
            I would probably offer to throw in a bench player like Newman or Odor…or both.

            I have $2 Vlad, $5 EloyJ, and $5 V.Robles.

            Mondi and Betts for which one and Newman and Odor?

            Basically, who is going to be the worst of these three STUDS?

    Kikuchi, Kynn, Lucchesi, Chirinos,Means,

    Ramos
    C Santana, J Turner, Riley
    Trea, Segura, Albies (supposed to be my strength)

    Util: Myers or Lauerano
    IL: Carrasco
    Berrios, Castillo, Bieber, Hill, Matz/Stream
    Neris, Robles, Strop, Baez, Kelley (saves and holds)

    Rick Porcello. He’s the lowest scoring SP on my staff and just shit the bed last night. Think he will turn it around? Wondering if I should shop him around and see if I can get any buyers. If I were to outright drop him the only available arms are Alex Reyes, D. Lamet, Jose Urena, Griffin Canning, Trevor Richards (who has had a few good games recently) or Pablo Lopez. What would you do in a redraft points league? Second question – drop Ryan Pressly for Neris or Leclerc?

I’m probably going to go with the cheapest one or two of the list I can get, but didn’t want to buy someone who isn’t worth holding for more than a start of two.

    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!!

    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

    Yordan on the way!

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

    Was gonna pick Didi back up but friend beat me to it & talked trash.

    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.

                I thought that you might say that about Wacha. Bummer is that I dropped Anibal for PdL, and he’s not available to be picked up till Tuesday morning. I’ll miss a decent match up @CHW tomorrow.

                I need to move on from the trade for Puig or Kingery. He’s now countering Puig/Kingery for Rizzo. Big “NO THANK YOU!!… and good luck with your four SPs and 2 bench bats.”

    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.

    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.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Trade Yordan for a better 3B? Carp for Matz seems fine…

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        you don’t see Senzel as a top 10 3B ROS?

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Meh, so Yordan can sit on your bench then get sent down in 2 weeks?

    2-25 last 2 weeks for cooper?
    And drop Gardner for deshields? need to
    Jump up in the steals cats I’m in the middle. First in avg.
    Homers and rbis is what I’m looking for.
    Piscotty @rays and vs Mariners next week
    Cooper vs cardinals and pirates

    If I win the bid on yordan would it be wise to not pick up
    Cooper and hold piscotty?

    • Grey

      Sure re: not pick up Cooper and hold piscotty?

    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.
    Just finished Chernobyl- the liquidators with shovels on the roof was the most insane thing ever.

      Grey says:

      @ATL does not sound good — if Bassitt’s at home, he’d be my choice, but none are good

      So crazy with the shovels on the roof, right? Madness

    Hey Grey,

    Hope all is well. Yesterday you told me to drop Ohtani for Bruce. Waivers go through tonight and Ohtani is starting to heat up.

    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!

    My guys:
    -Franmil
    -Ohtani
    -Domingo
    -Avisail

    • Grey

    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.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Peacock would see to be owned… and Fried

    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!

    Is Brendan Rodgers droppable in 15 team leagues or hold?

    • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
      (link)

      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)

    • Grey

      Drop

  181. Eli Man Penguin Boy says:

    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.
