I saw an article the other day titled, “Brewers:  Buyers or Sellers?”  Admittedly, I only read the title.  I figured I’d save myself some time because the Brewers are in last place, 19 games behind the Cardinals.  Maybe the article was talking about the art of selling home brewed beer and had nothing to do with baseball.  Buying or selling could be a conundrum for the home brewmaster along with, “What do you tell your wife about why she can’t go into the garage?”  “Can you name your beer ‘HeineKEN’ if your name is Ken and other copyright laws?”  And my favorite home brewer conundrum, “Skunked or urinated on by the family dog, how can I tell?”  Yeah, I’m guessing the Milwaukee Brewers are sellers, which means Carlos Gomez, Gerardo Parra and others are headed somewhere.  This will open everyday playing time for Khris Davis.  It’s Khrismas in July!  *ringing bell*  Come Khristian boys and girls and Jewish boys and girls that want to pretend, it’s that special time of year!  Why do we care about Davis?  Because he has 30-homer power something baseball lost just after they started testing for those pesky PEDs.  Right now, Davis is owned in less than 10% of leagues, but I could see that shooting up to 75% owned in the next month if he hits for power and gets everyday playing time as I imagine he will.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Delino DeShields – Sometimes I sit around wondering how Ron Washington is doing.  I hear he’s an infield coach for the A’s.  I hope he’s doing well and not sniffing too much of the devil’s dandruff.  I’m reminded of him because Delino seems like a player Ron would’ve enjoyed managing.  Maybe Ron’s kid can move up the Rangers’ ranks and manage the club soon.

Alejandro De Aza – The Red Sox outfield is a bit crowded and I’m not talking Hanley’s ego.  Snap in the inverted W formation!  Ow, my elbow!  I still like De Aza, but you might need to platoon him occasionally.

Marlon Byrd – I wonder if he ever gets mail meant for Pence, The Gangly Manbird.

Thomas Pham – You know how some fans grab a group of friends and make a cheering section for a player?  Like Padilla’s Flotilla or The Wolf Pack.  Some guys (because girls aren’t dopey enough to do this) should get together and dress up like Hormel Canned Hams all with the letter P on them.

Gregor Blanco – Aoki’s not Aoki-dokie and Blanco has been starting and performing with his own special brand of empty average, some speed and runs.  By the by, Gregor Blanco sounds like a Russian Albino and Angel Pagan is the star of Dan Brown’s next novel, so who’s next for the Giants, Eduardo Nunez, who’s secretly Ed, The Crossdressing Nun?

Jarrod Dyson – I just gave you my Jarrod Dyson fantasy.  It involved a vacuuming chicken.  Why does that make me aroused?

Preston Tucker – Okay, you’re wondering, what’s the deal with me and Tucker?  Sure, he’s been hitting 2nd, but so what, right?  He had 10 homers in 25 games in Triple-A and has always shown power.  Plus, hitting 2nd shows the Astros want him to succeed.  That’s good, they’re invested.  Now if he starts hitting bombs, everyone will scramble for him, ‘n presto!

John Jaso – You think he accidentally writes his name Joh Jason?  Or Jason Joh?  Or John Jaso Jingleheimer Schmidt?  I have questions, y’all!

C.J. Cron – I don’t even know why I bother with this guy.  Well, I should correct that.  I know why I bother, because he has 30 homer power.  The problem is The Sciosciapath will likely play Matt Joyce, Efren Navarro, Taylor Featherston, Grant Green or a whole slew of guys whose names you likely think I’m making up.  “Efren Navarro?  C’mon!  At my auction, I tried to draft Nadir Bupkis and everyone made fun of me!”

Clint Robinson – He’s been playing with the Nats banged up, which sounds like a phrase Eduardo Nunez would slap my knuckles over.  Ed, The Crossdressing Nun, “We don’t say banged up!”  Robinson is more or less a Quad-A player, so don’t get your hopes up.  “Your hopes better be the only thing up, mister!”

Stephen Piscotty – Could be called up shortly to replace Mini Donkey.  Ask Prospect Mike why you should be interested in Piscotty.  Or ask him about biscotti, he loves hard cookies.

Nick Castellanos – One of the hottest schmotatoes in the land and that land is The Land of Hot Schmotatoes, so we’re talking a real hot schmotato here.

Kelly Johnson – Here’s a Hitter-Tron call just like that heavy breathing phone call the Hitter-Tron made to a steel factory.

Jake Lamb – How awkward would it be if the Diamondbacks roomed Lamb with Yasmany?  “That’s not the mini bar; that’s my leg!”

Eugenio Suarez – This guy feels like a hot schmotato that will cool by the time you pick him up, but maybe he’ll make look you look like an Eugenius.

Ervin Santana – Just think, if you own Ervin and Tucker, you can rename your team Presto ‘n Magic.  Or just go with its current name of, I Hate Pablo Sandoval.

Andrew Heaney – He’s looked terrific so far, and I liked him a lot coming into this year, but I do worry he could get squeezed out of a job shortly with Weaver returning.  Worth a grab in deeper leagues, just in case.

Wei-Yin Chen – I understand he’s not this good, but for more than half the year his ERA is at 2.82.  Maybe you pick him up until he’s not pitching well.  Let’s try that.

Kyle Hendricks – This is a strictly Stream-o-Nator call.  Well, not exactly, I do like Hendricks in deeper leagues, but I’d at the very least stream him.

Ryan Vogelsong – Again, Stream-o-Nator loves his next start, and vs. the Phils is a no brainer.  Hey, a no brainer is my specialty!

Joe Smith – I just went over this morning why Smith has my interest piqued.  Give it a pique!

Jeremy Jeffress – I gave Will Smith a chance on my teams and he shat on my pursuit of happyness.  Now if K-Rod gets traded, I’m thinking it might be Jeffress.

Jason Motte – I’m not going to run down all of the closers that aren’t owned in more than 50% of leagues.  It’s ridunk at this point that Ziegler, Osuna and Motte aren’t owned.  If this is because there’s leagues that are 4×4 being counted towards ownership numbers, then my apologies.  If there is one league in there where Ziegler et al. aren’t owned and someone needs saves, so help me if I have to come back here!

Scooter Gennett – Here’s one of my secret crushes that I Catfish late at night, but I honestly don’t exactly know why.  I think I like his power possibility.

Rougned Odor – You think he purposely forgoes deodorant because he’s going to hear about it anyway?

SELL

Ryan Braun – I don’t hate Ryan Braun.  Okay, I do, but that’s not why I’m telling you to sell him.  I’m telling you to sell him because he still has name value that’s more valuable than he will be going forward.  To pick up what I was talking about in the lede, the Brewers will be sellers and Braun will have nothing to play for and even less to play with.  It’s fine for a guy like Khris Davis who just needs ABs, but Braun could be batting in front of Hernan Perez and behind Shane Peterson.  Then throw in the fact that Braun is a legit sneeze away from the DL.  Plus, how hard do you think the Brewers will push Braun if he’s nursing something day-to-day that doesn’t have a nipple?  Not hard.  I’m not saying sell him for a previously licked donut, but I would explore options.

    Smooth work today, sir. Do I drop any of these batters or pitchers to pull Holliday off the DL or do I drop Holliday. Tried to deal him with no success. 12 team H2h 6×5 (ops added) and in second place 8 games ahead and 4 behind. Average on power lately (I do have arenado and Joc) and average on speed (Wong, odor, maybin giving me most steals)

    Maybin, Lind, Pillar, Hosmer (I have fielder for1B as well, 2 utility spots)

    My rotation and rp: scherzer, Lester, McCullers, Heston, Chavez, Santana, K Hendricks, w Davis, aj Ramos, storen, gregerson

    In a keeper league would you deal Cole and Bogaerts for Bumgarner and Tulo if Tulo and Bumgarner were unkeepable next year? In particular, I am trying to upgrade my lineup for the second half. Another alternative would be to add Betts (from my side) and Kipnis to the deal. Betts would be keepable – Kipnis is not. Thanks so much and have a great weekend.

  12. Clint says:

    Do you think Tomas’ power will come around to make him a complete player or is this what we’re gonna get w/this guy? Looking at his numbers, if his power comes around, he could be a h2h points league stud but SON says I should grab Moss over him ROS for my h2h points keeper league?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I think he’s going to hit 25 homers or more

  13. Scott says:

    11 team standard Roto Redraft

    Give my Yoenis for his Cueto sound fair?

    I would prefer to hold Cespedes rather than sell for an arm but…

    I’m in 1st in Homers (i have 12 more than the guy in 2nd) 1st in RBI’s (by 17) and Runs (by 30sh)
    I’m middle of the pack in Wins and ERA but 1st place in K’s

    We have 3 OF Slots and 3Util slots and the rest of my OF and bench are:
    Harper, Adam Jones, Calhoun, Kyle Seager, Dyson, Byrd, Lind

    My SPs are:
    Archer, Pineda, Carrassco, Greinke, ( and one Streaming Slot) and I just lost Matz

    His looks like he could use an OF bat and his arms worth buying are:
    Gerrit Cole, Cueto, Zimmerman

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      @knucks: Was also looking at maybe my Harper for his Gerrit Cole + bat (possibly either Kipnis or Puig)

      Would you rather a one for one deal (like Cespedes for Cueto) or a deal like Harper for Cole and a bat?

      • Grey

    Hey Grey,

    Already grabbed K. Davis. Feel good about the OF now. Thought that I was OK with pitching, but having Matz go down sucks.

    Currently have both Burns and Revere (sitting Revere as long as K. Davis is starting). Thoughts on offering Revere for T. Ross? Fair trade (he needs the speed)? Thanks for the great stuff.

    In a 14 team H2H league where we keep 3 at their previous years draft round for one year only, Would you accept this trade:
    His Pederson, Rendon, Shields for my Pujols, Wong, Graveman.

    I would have Odor to feel in for Wong until Redon gets back and Edwin to cover Pujols at first. Pujols was a 2nd round pick and Wong was a 5th. I would however be interested in keeping Pederson with his 14th rd tag. I would then keep Pederson with Trout and Harper next year. Thoughts on this?

    12-team 5×5 league

    Team A: 1st place. Strengths: big gaps ahead of the next group in SB, saves. Tight races everywhere else but especially in K’s, pitching ratios, BA.

    Team B: 2nd place. Strengths: K’s, MI depth (Turner, Bogaerts, Sano, Travis, DeShields need to fit into two MI spots), big BA lead. Weaknesses: saves, wins, SB, tight races in pitching ratios.

    Team A’s Pollock, Lackey, Tolleson for Team B’s Sale, Turner, Giles. Team A replaces Pollock by playing Soler and Pedro Alvarez more, while Turner takes ABs away from a Flores/Valbuena/Alexei trio manning two MI spots. Team B replaces Turner by giving Sano/Travis more MI ABs, while Pollock fits into a 4 OF/1 U rotation populated by Cespedes/Jones/Moss/Colabello/Polanco/Dyson.

    Whose side do you like, A, B, both or neither?

    Almighty Grey:
    I am at a standstill in my 10 team H2H keeper points league. My team is in first, pretty handily i might add. But i am just not happy with my team. I don’t even know if this is possible but would you trade my Abreu, Heyward and Archer for Brantley Marte,Machado and Kluber? I might have to add another piece but nothing too valuable.

    Abreu is a Utility guy so I would be replacing him with Machado and marte and Brantley would be guys I would switch into my outfield (Harper CarGo Lite Bruce/Heyward). Kluber would be taking Archers spot in my rotation (Sale, Degrom, Keuchel, Archer, STREAMER).

    I totally agree with you on Jeffress. He passes the eye test when watching him as a future closer type & he seems to have the closer mentality. Ideally needs to cut back a bit on his walks & he will be a steady closer. I also doubt the Brewers will take Smith, their best lefty specialist, & make him closer unless it was a match-up situation in the 9th & he were available.

    • Grey

    3 questions:

    2) OR drop Dan Murphy from MI during AS break and try and move 2 of the above starters for 1 SP?then snag Lemahieu or Muprhy for MI post trade

    3) Cruz + Billy Hamilton for Harper fair? 10 teamer redraft– opponent last in steals

      • jal179 says:

        @Grey:

        Sorry second option is rather dropping one of those SPs, I’d drop my MI infielder instead during the Allstar break and try and make a trade where I deall say Odor + Erod for a single Sp. Then I’d have room to pickup my MI again.

        Basically all of my SPs will be picked up off the wire which I hate and I’d rather try and move 2 SPs for 1 and upgrade my roster a bit.

    @Grey: Came back from a camping trip and my teams are a mess! Wondering your take on a couple players in a 12 team league:

    1) In weekly leagues, is it time to stop drinking Colabello? He’s been getting benched against righties lately.
    2) Is it worth holding onto Jamie Garcia and/or Matz?
    3) Is it worth holding Buxton. He wouldn’t be a keeper on my team?

    Hey Grey,

    10 Teamer, 5×5

    I have:
    Allen, Tolleson, Familia, Ramos

    Just added Johnson after the Grili news. And Motte just got dropped for some reason.

    Obviously I can’t have them all, but do you like Johnson or Motte over any of the first 4?

    Thanks!

    My team:
    C: Perez
    1B: Frazier
    2B: Gordon
    3B: Arenado
    SS: Tulo

    I’m currently in second place (obviously a very shallow league).
    Who should I drop when Freeman comes back?
    Tehran, Sanchez, Cashner, Quintana are all on waivers are any of them better than one of my starters?
    Should I sell high on Arenado/Frazier/Martinez/Gordon or are they legitimate?
    Sell Shields/Kinsler for as much as I can get or hold?

    Happy Weekend Grey

    Scenerio: Currently in 5th place in a 12 team keeper league where you can keep 5 players for an unlimited amount of time. My Pitching is terrible. League leader Joe (who only has Harper and Puig as elitish keepers) wants Correa and an OF.
    I own J Abreau, N Arenado, A Rizzo, C Correa
    I own JUpton, CGonzalez, Blackmon, Soler, Holt at OF

    1. Would you trade Correa and one of Blackmon/Soler for Matt Harvey, Arrieta and J Peralta?

    Waivers..(I’m allowed to make 6 glorious waiver transactions in a limited moves league because of the double week.)

    2. Drop J Turner or A Lind at Util?
    3. Pick 3 bum streamers or Closers: Heaney, Hendricks, Joe Smith, J Jeffress, E Ramirez, B Johnson, R Ray, T Jungman, K Gibson,
    4. Would you drop Alex Wood or Phil Hughes for any of the streamers or closers above?

    Thanks Grey!

        @Dynamite Dan:

        Whoops. Dont worry about the second reply.

        I do realize the and my own pitching is terrible.

        I did have a look at your RCL team though and the fact that you had Carrasco plus a relative shit ton of closers and set up men gave me hope.

        Thanks again

    One more question.

    Dyson is out there and Parra was just dropped.

    Would you drop Brock Holt for either of them?

    Thanks again

    Drop Desmond in a 7×7 OPS league to grab Melky? I have Sano now as my SS. My OF is kind of weak – McCutchen, Choo, Garcia, and Eaton. 2 moves per week.
