Don’t yell at me!  I own Carlos Santana and I know how awful he’s been!  It makes sense that his name is Carlos Santana, because Carlos Santana looks like Edward James Olmos and the acne scars Olmos has are how deep Carlos Santana’s scarred my fantasy soul.  Sometimes I wake at night in a cold sweat, frightened that Carlos Santana has found his way on all of my fantasy teams, only to realize it’s just a dream and I haven’t been sweating.  Instead, I peed myself, so I fall back to sleep soundly.  So, with that uplifting lead-in to this Buy, what do you sell to get Santana?  A herpes blister and hope for a dead cat bounce?  Yes, that would seem to be the case.  Okay, enough hubbub on the tomfoolery, do I really want you to buy Santana?  Yeah, I do.  Let’s look at his 1st half vs. 2nd half last year.  1st half:  14 HRs, 37 RBIs, .207 average, 45.8% ground ball rate, and death threats for what he did to fantasy teams.  The 2nd half last year:  13 HRs, 48 RBIs, .260 average in 16 less games than the 1st half.  His ground balls went way down (not literally!) to 34.2% and his fly balls shot up (literally!).  His hard contact went up, his Ks went down, his everything went up.  Some thought that his 2nd half last year was a sign he was going to break out in April this year.  Yeah, that didn’t happen, but he’s not old and I can’t imagine he’s going to stay this bad all year.  This year’s 1st half of 9 HRs, .211, 44.8% GB rate isn’t the end of an era, but maybe about to be the end of his error.  Pithy points!  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Adam Lind – Here’s a slight problem with telling you to buy Santana.  Intro Paragraph, “I thought we were done.”  We were, but I just wanted to illustrate something.  “I’ve seen you draw, I don’t think illustrating is something you should be doing.”  On our Player Rater, Lind has been more valuable than Santana on the year and is available in more than 50% of ESPN leagues.  So, you have Lind, but should trade for a guy that’s not as good in Santana?  Yeah, that’s a problem.  No, I don’t think you do trade for Santana.  Something that’s not mentioned often, because I say trade for a guy, it doesn’t mean it makes sense for every single team.  Anyway, here’s some more– “Hey, we did this already!”  My bad.

Chris Carter – I was thisclose to making Carter my lede today.  From frequent commenter Phil of the Future, “Public Service Announcement for anyone interested.  Chris Carter’s batting line through 76 games this year:  .198/.315/.405 with 14 homers and 38 RBI.  Carter’s line through 76 games last year:  .189/.269/.421 with 15 homers and 35 RBIs.”  Hey, he knows the future too.

Jon Singleton – I’m starting to get the Quad-A feeling from Jon Singleton, but he’s worth a flyer for power and ghetto fabulous movies.

Justin Bour – I just went over him this morning.  And the morning before that.  And the morning before– There’s a pattern here, but I’m not seeing it.

Cesar Hernandez – Fun fact!  Caesarean section got its name from someone cutting through a Caesar salad to get to the anchovies and pull them out.

Scooter Gennett – Just a quick word about the Buys, in general, I don’t give you a ton of info by design, because most of these guys I’ve been calling a hot schmotato and to grab.  With that said (you effin’ liar!), I like Scooter in the bigger picture more than most of this week’s MI buys.  He looked like hot garbage on the surface of the sun in the beginning of the season, but I believe he’s better than that.

Jonathan Schoop – Worth a flyer in deeper leagues for when he’s done with his rehab stint, but the O’s seem as if they don’t mind Ryan Flaherty and don’t really have room for Schoop, i.e., Schpoop.

Welington Castillo – Where’s the boeuf?!  Right here, dude, open your peepers.

Miguel Sano – I just gave you my Miguel Sano fantasy.  I wrote it on a banner then had an airplane fly it over Bobby Flay.

Hector Olivera – Missed on Buxton, Lindor, Syndergaard, Matz and Sano?  Well, you were prolly better off on a bunch of those.  Never the hoo!  I’d stash Olivera now if you’re looking for the next big call-up.

Nick Ahmed – It’s the Iranian lounge singer that tells everyone he’s really Italian…Nick Ahmed!

Randal Grichuk – I just can’t with this guy.  I love him so much it’s ridiculous.  All he needs is a fun nickname and I may never stop loving him ever and ever.  The Amazing Randal?  Okay, I’m done!

Melky Cabrera – True story:  My middle name is Melky.  No, that’s not true, but gee-effin-dee I wish it were!

Alejandro De Aza – Funny thing about De Aza that isn’t funny at all.  He’s hitting, so I grabbed him and now I’m holding him and he’s still hitting, yet, I want to drop him so bad.  Likely because of that Venezuelan line dance, The Alejandrop.

Garrett Jones – This is more of a Hitter-Tron call as is the call to Best Buy where the Hitter-Tron asks the salesperson to put on a printer so it can talk dirty to it.

Adam Eaton – You know why I keep pushing Eaton on you?  Because he could easily be Pollock.   Eatonski.  See?

Marlon Byrd – For those skimming this list that are now craving poultry, I just hypnotized you.

Ender InciarteDavid Peralta has been solid, but what did you expect from someone made up of 18.5% carbon?  Ender should be back any day now, and he will likely take his rightful spot back on top of the Diamondbacks lineup that is a dream for fantasy baseballers (<– my mom’s term!).

Michael Montgomery – How many one-hitters does a man need to pitch to get picked up by you people?!  Actually, I wouldn’t pick him up in some leagues either.  I just wanted to sound indignant.

Wei-Yin Chen – Foreign status, homeless Gattis, trades, crack, Chris Getz, prospects I like for sures, Jose Tabata’s wife should be under martial law, I can’t take it anymore!  Oh, sorry, I didn’t hear you come in.  Was just singing a little Billy Joel.  Chen should likely have been owned since March, but here we are.

Rubby de la Rosa – Word of warning, Stream-o-Nator likes Rubby and I’m starting him.  That’s two things that seem to cancel each out with Rubby.

Kyle Hendricks – Someone’s got their bright SON-shiny eyes on Hendricks for his next start.

Roberto Osuna – He has a 2.02 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 42 Ks in 35 2/3 IP.  Oh, yeah, he’s also getting saves now.

Jason Motte – Honestly, he could be the closer from now until October.  With Maddon, you never can tell.

Sergio Romo – With Casilla needing time off, it’s a good week for SAGNOF.  Or as they call it in my house, SAGNOF.  Hmm, guess it’s the same.

LaTroy Hawkins – Axford is out for a few on a family emergency; no idea how long, I’m guessing a week.  Every time I want to pick up a free agent, LaTroy is the first guy I want to drop, but I haven’t, which means he’ll likely get blitzed like 1940s London.

Will Smith – If K-Rod is traded and there’s one man left standing in Milwaukee, it’ll be Will Smith in I Am Legend.

Brad Ziegler – I wish I was in a league where he’s still available.  What do you need to pick him up?  After every save, he pees the letter Z into the mound?  Actually, that would be awesome.  Can we get a Make-A-Wish kid to request Ziegler do this?  Or maybe we start a new foundation called Make-A-Whizz, but get someone with a lisp to answer phones so no one knows they’re dialing the wrong number.

SELL

Giancarlo Stanton – NOOOOOOOOO!!!  Breathe, Grey, Breathe!  NOOOOOOOOO!!!  Hyperventilating.  Need oxygen!  Need!  Oxygen!  Okay, I’m not saying trade Giancarlo in a keeper league.  I’d never suggest that, and I do think Giancarlo will be fine as of March, 2016.  He even seems to bounce back from his injuries better than a fat kid on a trampoline, but — and this is a J. Lo-sized but — he is still likely out for a month.  In roto leagues, you’re going to get what from Giancarlo this year?  Maybe ten homers?  You’re telling me you can’t find someone to trade you a piece that is healthy right now that’ll get you ten homers?  I know, NOOOOOOOOO!!!   It hurts to trade mi novio, and I still love him.  Oh, God, do I love him, and I’m not saying trade him for the unpopped kernels in a Jiffy Pop container, but I would explore options if you’re in a redraft, roto league.

  4. Punk says:

    5×5, 12-team mixed keeper. What’s your take on these two rest of year?

    a. Yelich – Obviously, started the season with a back ouchie, but it looks to be turning around.
    b. An. Sanchez – Is he back and worth picking up on the still possibly relatively cheap?

    I’m considering proposing trade options to get them. The ROS Player Rater isn’t impressed with Yelich: An. Sanchez > Lackey > A. Gordon > S. Castro > Bauer > Yelich. None are keepers for me.

    Which side?

    c. Yelich/Sanchez or Gordon/Castro
    d. Yelich/Sanchez or Gordon/Castro/Bauer
    e. Yelich/Sanchez or Castro/Lackey/Bauer

    Castro is my 3rd SS behind Hanley and Turner, so he is mostly expendable, and the other guy is starting Alexei Ramirez, who has been terrible. I think Gordon was born in Yawnstantinople, but he’s definitely consistent and a better power threat. I’m 12/12/12 in R/HR/RBI but could definitely use the help in SBs.

    Last – I’d love to be in these leagues that have saves (or even handcuffs like Romo and J. Smith) on the wire. Thank you as always.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      A and B. I agree with what you said, both seem to have turned things around… Yelich side in all of these trades, I’d do them C, E, D…Agree on saves

    Grey, I am such a fan of your prose, I can tell when you’ve employed a ghost writer. You’re that good.

    Methinks I smell some ghost writing today. Still good writing, but parts that did not feel like your strong singular voice. Either that, or you’re getting an early start to this weekend’s partying.

    Enjoy the 4th with the Cougs!!

Cooking the pork takes between 8-9 hours plus cool down, fat removal and shredding. It’s an 11 plus hour process.

            @Grey: nah this was Chinatown NYC 1993. You’d walk around and see big fat Italian guys just sort of hanging out. Your eye each other and say fireworks under your breath. Then you’d be whisked through a few alleyways and rows of Chinese women seeing things and end up in some sort of fireworks vault. It was pretty amazing. My friends usually chose the more visual stuff. I went for the boooooom. It may be because I’m an adult now but I was in Chinatown on Tuesday and didn’t see any of this. New York was very different twenty years ago

    What’s up Grey? Man injuries have completely killed me, I’m still in 1st but I’m not sure I’ll even finish in the top four to clinch a playoff spot when it’s all said and done. That being said, any suggestions based on my roster below? Many of your buys are available: Eaton, Lind, Singleton, Olivera and then there are guys like Odor, Murphy, M.Taylor and Alvarez. Hold tight, pick one of them up and if so who’s my drop Montgomery?

    Happy 4th of July wknd! Still in Palm Springs? Work friends(i teach in Riverside~what up JFOH!)are there for a gymnastics thingy. Going LA(Pico Rivera) tomorrow to enjoy illegal fireworks and great burgers while we play a jenga game(each piece is a one foot two-by-four) . Anyway, 10team H2H went against ur advice and drafted Rendon and Freeman…i thought they were great value where i got them. Shld i be worried about either one post AllStar break? I also have CDick on the DL. I keep hoping one of their teams will say they are done for the season …

    • Grey

        @Grey:

    I see some catchers on here. But from a dynasty league standpoint, which catchers do you think are good buys right now?

    I like Santana but this is likely his last year of C eligibility.

    Gomes?
    Lucroy?
    Mesoraco?
    Wieters?
    d’Arnaud?
    J. McCann?

    Who are you going after? Top 2-3 would be a huge help.

    (link)

    just took over this one, meaning i’ll have at least 2 espn leagues next year. it’s 9 keepers, but comish thinks to ensure some teams aren’t a lot better than others the keepers go like this, 2 SP, 2 RP, 5 hitters and at most 2 of those can be OF, and you can’t repeat the same position, except, if you want you can have a prospect (150/50 regular cut off point) from any position as your 5th hitter keeper. 14 team league H2H (one win, from many categories, so having a balanced team not as necessary as standard H2H). total bases, caught stealing, K’s and OPS extra hitting categories, and BB’s, QS, losses, and holds added for pitchers. I used 6 of my 7 weekly adds adding lowe/capps/de aza/dave peralta/aramis/mauer (those latter two very good lately)
    zunino
    rizzo
    dozier
    carpenter
    mercer
    MI scooter
    CI aramis
    LF kemp
    CF pollock
    RF calhoun
    OF de aza
    util d.peralta
    BN desmond/le mehieu/mauer
    DL stanton/bitch tits fatt adams
    SP peavy/erv santana/haren/kuechel/fiers/hahn/kazmir/teheran
    RP kenley/perkins/boxberger
    P capps/lowe
    1. my keepers are certainly perkins/kenley/keuchel/rizzo/stanon/dozier/pollock (or calhoun), but i’m think the 2nd SP is pretty damn weak, and 5th hitter isn’t good options either (carpenter/desmond don’t seem great as keepers). Idea would be to grab Schwarber (he could count as prospect or catcher, either way works). CUBS probably don’t recall him till AUG 14th when they go to WSOX and would need a DH, but probably good idea, or could grab some other prospect later. All the big names are gone of course. Probably gotta trade desmond + pitcher for better SP somewhere.
    any of these better adds
    2. MI over mercer: segura/hardy/suarez/espinosa (espo could fill in at CI too over aramis when he goes cold again)
    3. which of these over zunino: beef welington/gomes/realmuto/cheerios
    4. coghlan over any of my OF’ers?
    5. any of these pitchers over any of mine?: rubby/vince/gibson
    6. who’s my worst SP to stream that spot (7 adds per week)?
    that should clean that one up.

    7. what’s best order to trade for out of these for 2nd keeper SP: hammel/mccullers/thor/walker/pineda, those are all on somebody’s trade block. stras/kershaw are too, but i’m not paying for those.

    Last year Jason Hammel was excellent for the Cubs before being traded to the Athletics after his 17th start and falling apart in a great pitchers park. Did he run out of gas or do you think he just couldn’t handle the offenses in the AL West? After today’s 16th start is it time to sell?

    1. You last recommended picking up Carter to try and fill Springer’s shoes but I never mentioned other guys in your BUY who are also available like: Bour, Melky, Lind, Singleton, Eaton, Grichuk.. still like Carter best?

    2. I still have to drop a pitcher for whoever we pick above and I still I haven’t done yet because I don’t want to drop McCullers but we decided he was the one to boot because his next start is @BOS (-15.6) tomorrow (plus I strategically didn’t want my opponent to have time to pick him up and start him against me) … I hate having my bench consumed by Springer because Rendon is on the DL and now I’m even more torn over who to drop so I can keep streaming!?

    Fiers vs. 7/8 vs. ATL (16.8
    Chavez 7/9 @NYA (-3.2)
    Syndergaard 7/10 vs. ARI (29.1)

    McCullers 7/5 @BOS (-15.6), 7/10 @TB (11.4)

    3. Best streamer for Sunday?

    Bolsinger vs. NYN (12.3)
    Hendricks vs. MIA (9.5)

        (link)

        @Grey: Ha! Nah I work retail but good guess though!

        Sorry I wasn’t too clear but as for question 2, I was asking what other pitcher besides McCullers is the one to let go? Out of Fiers, Chavez, Noah, Wood, Matz and Walker … I’ll be dropping McCullers for Bour but if I plan on streaming Hendricks or anyone else I’ll have to drop another SP which I’ll hate doing …

    about tired of c.anderson’s lack of K’s and now his homer rate is catching up to him. drop in 14 teamers with losses for any of
    peavy (6.6 vs NYM next)
    gausman (upside choice clearly, but no job yet, and no expected start pre break either)
    blanton (3.5 and 2.4 next two starts pre break, vs MIN, vs TB)
    hutch (@ WSOX 6)
    locke vs CLE, vs STL (1.9, -.5)

    2. for keeper purposes (in that league above) would i rather keep perkins or boxberger. i’ll try to trade the other one. guessing perkins, even with the age thing.

        @Grey: i actually don’t need the start in the short term, just just pissed at chase’s recent performance, but he’s calmed down since i typed that. K’s are actually back. Clearly i should grab gausman if it’s reported he gets starts. Chase’s boring stability might be better to keep unless/until we see on gaus, or blanton looks good repeatedly.

    wow, never thought TEX management so forward thinking as to drop feliz. this is the same group that publicly was just fine with going into season with a closer making claims like “i’m not worried about my MPH drop” and “i don’t need no K’s to be effective” (these are just rewordings of exactly what feliz said in interviews preseason, it’s why i had him nowhere at all). I’m betting very few teams bring a guy with “closer experience” off DL, give him 2 innings, he doesn’t do badly in those innings, and they still tell him to F off, since he’s not good, and costs too much money for what he is now. In the battle of the dumb vs the not, AL west is filled with combatants (LAA and every thing they do, recently with GM leaving due to knowledge being ignored as if he was semmelweis, SEA with lloyd christmas, TEX with this quite astute decision).

    I was offered the Adrians, Beltre and Gonzalez, along with Alex Gordon, Holliday, and Iwakuma for Correa, Burns, and Betances in a 14-team dynasty.

    C: Norris
    1B: Votto/Moreland
    2B: Wong/Daniel Murphy
    3B: Moustakas/Valbuena/Rendon on the DL
    SS: Correa/Jose Iglesias or equally uninspiring waiver options
    OF: Cruz/Burns/Byrd/Ellsbury on the DL
    SP: Cueto/G.Richards/Bauer/Graveman/Volquez/C.Young/Ryu on the DL
    RP: Betances/Osuna/Joe Smith/Jake McGee from State Farm/C.Capps/Siegrist
    Minors: 1B Josh Bell. OFs Aaron Judge, Andrew Benintendi, and Garrett Whitley, SPs Robert Stephenson, poor Jameson Tailon and Ashe Russell.

    It’s a Saves+Holds league. Everything else is standard. I’d only have two DL slots for Rendon, Holliday, Ellsbury (back next week?), Iwakuma, and Ryu, in addition to already having to drop two players simply to complete the trade. Like the players. Hate their ages. Not sure how good Correa can be, whether Burns and Moreland are just teasing us, or how much longer Beltre and Holliday will even be around. I’m not accustomed to dynasties where I have to take long term potential and age into account.

    nocturnal nerdness noted (alliteration aware as well)

    because official scoring does matter in our game, anyone know where one can get some official and/or informed explanation for a scoring decision?

    I am struggling with matt duffy’s at bat in the top of the sixth in yesterday’s game with the nationals. Seems to me there is either an error or a hit on the play.

    anyone explain, or know where i can discuss… i understand the nebulous nature of the fielder’s choice rule, but in this case i think this element is more applicable:

    “the throw is not in time, and both runners are safe. Assuming the official scorer agrees the (second baseman) could not have thrown the batter-runner out at first with ordinary effort, this play will be scored as a base hit and not FC.”

    sorry for the interruption, now please return to the fanasy tomfoolery and shenanigans.

    • Toe Knee Arm Ass says:
      (link)

      @tyler daniels: I just watched the replay the throw did look in time which would have been an error but Wash. did get the out on Pagan’s leaving the bag so it resulted in an out it then became a FC instead of an error.

      • tyler daniels says:
        (link)

        @Toe Knee Arm Ass: yeah but if he stays on the base, it is a base hit? and having achieved the base, isn’t the play recorded, and then start again? i mean i suppose, if someone steals second, and then over runs it and gets tagged out, they dont get the stolen base, but i f they get thrown our trying to stretch a double into a triple they still get credit for the double, although if they slide past the bag (second) and get tagged out is it still a double? and in this instance Pagan is (in a sense) making the turn and trying for third. all so confusing….

        • Toe Knee Arm Ass says:
          (link)

          @tyler daniels: If he stayed on the bag an error would have been recorded.

          • tyler daniels says:
            (link)

            @Toe Knee Arm Ass: ok fair enough, can i ask you this, if the play happens exactly the same way, but a runner scores from third on the play,,,then is an error recorded…even though the play hasn’t changed, and is it then n unearned run?

            • tyler daniels says:
              (link)

              @tyler daniels: wouldnt you know it, exactly the same play happened again to duffy in todays game in the eight inning, (although runner overran third instead of second) this time they gave duffy a single, because there was no error, although the error was never recorded in the first instance….that doesn’t make any sense at all to me, the plays are very similar.

    Hey Grey,
    I have Wily burning a hole on my bench. I’m getting sick of waiting, and who knows how he’ll be. Strasburg just left with an injury (possibly oblique). Could be just cramping too, who knows. If he were to go down, would Ross be the guy to get, or would the Nats just go with Roark?
    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Roark would be my guess but could be Ross

      • Pugs&Slugs says:
        (link)

        @Grey: So, it’s really a coin flip at this time. Since Ross has adjusted well, I hoped they might use him and keep Roark in long-relief.

        Even if Strasburg doesn’t miss a start (or only one), I still have to do something about my lineup. Kang sits 3 times a week, Gennett sits vs. lefties, and Dickerson occupying a spot. I need something either to strengthen my pitching staff or hitting for the short-term.

        My staff is Cole, Arrieta, Shields, Hendricks, Heston, Peavy, Wily, Chapman, Kenley, Melancon, and Ziegler. Should I sacrifice Peralta for some immediate help?

        I was offered Holliday for Dickerson. I’ll wait to see how Holliday rehabs. I’m still holding out hope my brother will trade Heyward for him, but since I play him next week, it won’t happen soon. If I can get a deal done for Dickerson in 2-3 weeks, I can sit tight with my MI.

        Enjoy your 4th!

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          That staff looks pretty solid for NL-Only… I’d take Holliday for Dickerson, but doesn’t help your perceived problem with pitching… You too!

          • Pugs & Slugs says:
            (link)

            @Grey: So keep Peralta instead of speculating for Ross? I agree I have a great staff, but was just wondering about getting rid of Peralta. I will do the Dickerson deal if Holliday comes back healthy. The other owner is out of contention and won’t get a better offer.

    MY DL ALL STAR TEAM:: 1b, Miguel Cabrera, OF, George Springer, 3b Anthony Rendon…

    My offense already 10th out of 14 teams…clinging to a playoff spot and falling fast.

    My starting pitching starts out with Kluber, Archer, DeGrom. But they don’t get wins, do they? LOL.

    And, have you experienced this? Pitching is so strong this year, a lot of teams won’t trade for frontline pitcher because they think they can get the next hot comer off the waiver wire….ie, I can’t move a pitcher for a bat.

    So: C: Gomes
    1b: Colabello
    2b: Odor
    SS: Sano (Desmond … I’ll wait til after all star break…if no improvement I’ll drop)
    3b: Longoria
    OF: Betts
    OF: Yellich
    OF: Byrd
    UT: Franco

    On waivers: Forsythe, Panik, Parra, THunter, Calhoun, Ethier, Calhoun, Hundley, Montero, Canha, Blanco, Grichuck, Bour. Hot schmato stream it ROS with a few guys steady? Hey, if those 3 come back strong, and I stay close, I could close out the year with a bang! ;)

    Any help and dark horse candidate suggestions appreciated. There may be others not on this list, but it’s 14 team h2h, there are some odd folk on waivers, but mostly, the good ones are snapped up.

    Thanks, Grey….moping…..now I know how the Giants feel with Aoki and Hunter Pence down…who’m I kidding…..my loss is worse!

    Here’s the situation. They’re saying Iwakuma is coming back Monday so I’ve got to drop someone to activate him. At the same time, Showalter is finally putting Gausman in the rotation full time starting Tuesday and I’d like to pick him up if possible. Here’s my pitching staff and we can only have 10 SP’s. Who do I drop, if anyone, to get Iwakuma back and possibly pick up Gausman?

    Bumgarner
    Arrieta
    Carrasco
    Salazar

          @royce!: i’m around my computer all the time (lame though it may be), only thing that often changes is how often and where i’m gonna find wifi if out of town, and how F’d up i might be. So i guess those hundreds of people are just skipping work when they post on work days? I was at a three day wedding a few weeks back and missed buxton and somebody else that was called up those 2 days. Probably only had 2 hours a day at computer if that.

            @Crapshoot Kershaw: then again i hate holidays, as they screw up transit schedules and businesses are closed often. It’s not cool to try to go to a grocery store either right before they stop selling or start to and find out they’re closed. I’d rather be lit on days i can be the least functioning thing, not entire world around me. Of course i don’t have the “normal” job such that i need scheduled off days either, so i could understand that.

    I’m going to breakdown a buy candidate:

    26.7% LD, 45.6% FB, 10.6% HR/FB

    vs R: .736 OPS, 8.2% HR/FB

    It’s Lucas Duda. Seriously, his LD+FB rates combine for nearly 73%. That’s… some kind of wonderful. It’s the kind of hitting profile that lends itself to hitting .265 with 30 HR, with upside for more. The only other guy with a similar batted ball profile in the majors is Brian Dozier, and Duda has significantly outpaces him in hard hit percentage and has around half the infield fly balls.

    best guys on waivers are locke/hellickson/niese other than kendricks.

    2. in main league 14 team H2H redraft with OBP/total bases and hits added if marte gets hurt i’m guessing drop buxton out of buxton/d’arnaud and grab one of these to replace: holt/coghlan/c.robinson/dave peralta/taylor. i’ll have more marte concerns later but this is most important one.

    Fowler has been super quiet for an extended stretch now. Would you drop for Bour, De Aza?

    And at MI, drop Kang for Walker, Scooter, Miller, Schoop, Gyorko? Who has most upside?

    Thanks
