Moogly-boogly!  It’s been a long winter.  The Buy/Sell Column’s back, helping you know when the hell you’re supposed to stop working early on Friday.  During the offseason, while you were diddling and thinking about how your middle school nickname was Skidmark, I, The Buy/Sell Column was re-reenacting scenes from Moonlight with puppets in the BBQ Belt of Alabama because I’M HARDCORE!  You want some Rip Taylor-wannabe, throwing confetti at your feet or you want a Buy/Sell Column that simulates puppets having hand-sex on a beach to a very anti-puppet sex audience!?  Like Jose Altuve trying to get the Cocoa Puffs, you want the latter!  Okay, enough of the hubbub on the tomfoolery, I’m in on Tyler Saladino.  Last year, Saladino had eight homers and 11 steals in only 298 ABs while hitting .282.  One year in the minors, he stole 38 bases, and, one year in the minors, he hit 16 homers.  Put that together, and you have Francisco Lindor!  Okay, kidding, but he’s hitting leadoff, is eligible at 2B and SS, and can get a few homers while also stealing some bases.  And I’m not excited about him simply because I named one of my puppets in Alabama, Tosser Saladino.  My love for Saladino did not start when I heard he had a brother named Cucumber Saladino.  Wrong, I don’t love Saladino simply because I’m in LA and I picture him topped with wheatgrass.  Eff your wheatgrass, Los Angeles!  Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Stephen Vogt – Quick word about the Buys and Sells.  Buys have to be owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues.  Why ESPN?  Why not, who cares, why you asking why ESPN?  Leave me alone!  Next, Sells have to owned in more than 50% of ESPN leagues.  Why ESPN?  Didn’t I just give you a non-answer on that?  As for Vogt, he will be hitting in the middle of the A’s lineup, which should be good for counting stats.  Now if Vogt starts getting, say, 5 RBIs in games where the A’s only score four runs, then someone may call an investigation into California’s Vogt.

Sandy Leon – As Kanye said on his song Diamonds are Sandy Leon, “Diamonds are forever (forever, forever), and diamonds are Sandy Leon.”  I’m paraphrasing.

Travis Shaw – I see his last name and see a missing P for pshaw, which is defined as an expression of impatience.  As in, when is Shaw going to hit for some power?  Pshaw!  Can’t Shaw be as good as Jake Lamb?  Pshaw!  Why do I keep spitting every time I say Shaw?  Pshaw!  But he has started the year hot, so I’d see if maybe there might be something here.

Mark Reynolds – Every time I saw Gerardo Parra in drafts and forgot to draft him, I did remember about Reynolds.  All brays to Mini Donkey?  Wouldn’t go that far yet, but for a month fill-in while Desmond’s out, I don’t mind it.

Ryan Schimpf – Where do you go for gross Americanized Chinese?  PF Chang’s.  Where do you go for gross, power-only 2nd basemen?  –pf Bang’s!

Raul Mondesi – Last year, he lost 50 games for a *cough* suspension *cough*.  Literally, he was banned for cough syrup.  By the way, how has no one played a prank on him and had Young the Giant’s Cough Syrup play when he goes up to bat?  This year, Mondesi has the everyday job, and he’s more SAGNOF! than most.  He might only hit .190 with thirty steals, but if you need that sorta thing and he can avoid the purple drank.

Devon Travis – Was shocked to see Travis not owned in 50% of leagues.  Shocked, I tell ya!  Like after the 2nd episode of the S-Town podcast shocked.  By the way, people should be listening to this; it’s a rich tapestry.  Like a tapestry that filters its money through off-shore bank accounts.  Any hoo!  There’s no reason Travis should not be owned in all leagues.

Joey Gallo – His power is immeasurable.  His 1st home run went 420 feet.  Random Italicized Voice, immeasurable is being used figuratively.  Like when Lou Gehrig said he was the luckiest man on earth after being diagnosed with a terminal illness?  Um, yeah sorta.

Chase Headley – Hot schmotato alert!  Or as JayWrong calls him, “The Greatest Hitter Of Our Generation.”

JaCoby Jones – No lie, I just spent fifteen minutes finding out there’s a football player named Jacoby Jones, who was on Dancing With the Stars.  I’m in such a baseball bubble, I never heard of him prior.  According to his ‘Personal Life’ Wikipedia section, he was injured in a way I imagine is a top ten cause for injury to football players, “Jones was struck over the head by a champagne bottle, swung by a stripper.”  Such an NFL-type injury.  As for JaCoby Jones, he’s a solid AL-Only play for some speed and power.

Freddy Galvis – I get it, J.P. Crawford is going to come up at some point this season, but there’s no reason why you can’t own Galvis until then.  What’s so special about Galvis?  Oh, I don’t know, he hit 20 HRs and stole 17 bases last year.  If you were promised that from, say, Byron Buxton, like you wouldn’t take it.

Chris Owings – Crazed Gene Wilder, “The danger must be growing, for his fantasy value keeps on growing, and they’re certainly grabbing Chris Owings, and there’s no sign he is slowing!”

Mitch Haniger – How is he only owned in 16% of ESPN leagues?  Oh, I know!  Karabell owns 18,000 teams to fill his virtual trophy case and doesn’t own Haniger on any of them.  Don’t pay attention to Karabot and grab Haniger.

Corey Dickerson – Who’s the hottest schmotato in the land?  Well, depends on your definition of schmotato and whether or not schmotato is a word, but Dickerson is pretty hot.

Aaron Judge – At some point, he’s going to mollywhop a home run 600 feet and the Yankee meathead fans are going to hype him so much you’re not going to want to own him just out of spite, but, as of right now, enthusiasm on Judge is still at a low roar like James Earl Jones playing the Cowardly Lion.

Manuel Margot – Since there’s still so few games that have been played, a lot of these guys are being touted here as pickups due to their potential and not so much what they’ve done thus far.  So, if you’re hemming and hawing over a speed guy to grab, find your Hemingway to Margot.

Andrew Toles – Or as Prospector Ralph calls him, Ricky Ross, the guy who invented crack, due to their resemblance.  Toles is less crack though, and more speed.  Also, Hitter-Tron loves him tomorrow.  Almost as much as the Hitter-Tron loves sticking its dipstick into greased metal holes.

Michael Wacha – Bit surprised by how late Wacha was drafted this year, or not at all.  When he was pitching healthy, if you can remember back that far, he was good.  Also, Stream-o-Nator likes his first start.

Brandon Finnegan – Here’s what I said the other day, “I’m the first guy to disregard how much players actually know about themselves.  I mean, some do, that’s no doubt, but I think a lot of them say they’ve made adjustments and never do.  I’m also the first one to disregard post-All Star break numbers, but I’m buying the combination of both for Finnegan.  He says he made adjustments and had a 2.93 ERA in the 2nd half last year.  That’s good enough for me, I’m buying it and him.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Matt Shoemaker – Another guy that I’d own, but this is more of a Stream-o-Nator call.  Like when it calls up the cable company to just chat.  Stream-o-Nator is sad!

Tyler Glasnow – Last starter pickup for this week that also happens to be a Stream-o-Nator approved start.  Like when it approves of standing real close to someone at Starbucks to feel a warm body.  Stream-o-Nator needs a girlfriend bad.

Hector Neris – I could’ve listed Jeanmar Gomez, and I kinda just did.  In some of my leagues, people have even grabbed Joaquin Benoit, but I think Neris is next in the landmark case of sooner vs. later.

Matt Bush – Should have the edge over Jeremy Jeffress if Dyson is removed from the closer role, though Rangers manager Banister might drive you crazy waiting for him to make the move.  Bananas-ster?

Cam Bedrosian – The Sciosciapath says the Angels will use a closer-by-committee, which is the worst hyphenated word since mother-in-law.  I don’t fully buy the closer-by-committee here and would just own Bedrosian, and Andrew Bailey only if desperate.

Santiago CasillaA’s committee is Santiago 1, everyone else zero.  If Casilla gets to three before anyone else gets to one, this will be his job to lose, which he will lose at some point, but hopefully not for a while.

Jason Grilli – Is the Jays closer until Osuna returns next week, then Grilli returns to being the setup man.  Not to be confused with grilli, lowercase, which is when you add stale bread to chili and form a patty to grill.  Okay, I just made that up, but it sounds delicious, right?

SELL

Byron Buxton – I hate giving up on players, but ya know what else I hate?  When guys seem to have two strikes on them before their at-bat even starts.  The other day I watched Buxton swing waist high on a ball in the dirt.  Can we have Buxton quickly go over an eye chart?  I think he might need glasses.  “How many fingers am I holding up?”  It’s either two fingers for the peace sign or one for the middle finger.  Either answer is acceptable.  I’m not dropping Buxton yet, but I’d actively looking to trade him.

Michael Pineda – We fell for the ol’ banana in the ol’ tailpipe, didn’t we?  2nd verse, same as the first.  I hate giving up players early, but you know what else I hate?  This assFIP.

Xander Bogaerts – Seeing Bogaerts listed as a Sell caused a Son of Sam Horn to throw his computer out the window.  And by ‘computer,’ I mean his spiral notebook, and by ‘window’ I mean a window he drew on the basement wall of his mom’s house.  “Bogaerts is the best thing since Sammy Adams and Nomah, how dare you?  I’d like to see Nancy Kerrigan kick you in the balls.”  That’s a Masshole taking real offense at my Sell on Bogaerts.  Listen, Bogaerts’ perceived value is way higher than his actual value.  His projections are 17/10/.288 from ZiPS and 17/9/.296 from Steamer.  The runs and RBIs will be solid, but in most leagues you could find 17/10/.290 by piecing together Brandon Crawford and a hot schmotato.  I’m not saying trade Bogaerts for a Blockbuster gift card, but I would explore options.

    Dynasty league question here – Would you drop Jharel Cotton for Finnegan? I kinda want to, but Cotton was unlucky in his one start (bunch of weak hits, some just inside the line).

    A different Dynasty league, drop King Felix for Finnegan? (No bench spots in either league)

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hey Grey,

    I saw this morning that you thought David Peralta could be a top 30 OF this year. I also just heard that the Backs plan to give him lots off days against lefties as to not rush him back from his injury last year. Does that change your mind any?

    PF Changs sucks. Nice list Grey. If you have a useless spot sometimes it’s also good to speculate like a forty miner. I like picking up guys after disastrous first starts like Boyd or Folty and stashing them. This way you don’t have to waste FAAB on them.

    Can we nickname Shoemaker the Cobbler?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      He’s already nicknamed that

    Strategy question. If you were in a 16 team 40 major league and 10 minor league spots what would you do if you suddenly are about to control 1/5 of the saves production. Workers Unite!!! I took 3 real closers and speculated on Treinan, Bush and Street who will close. Trade the best one for biggest weakness or a mediocre one for a usable player?

      @Scott: A bench guy you play once a week isn’t going to kill your other stats.

    • Scott says:
      (link)

      i want more sb and upside for more production. This is a roto league and i own a few outfielders that get dinged up like polanco. So i will need to use this bat on off days or when guys are out of the lineup and perhaps at utility. Or if i fallback in sb.

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @Scott: Sounds like you’re describing Margot. I’d take Margot. But whoever you take, you can always try one of the other guys if he doesn’t work out. It’s just a bench bat.

    Time to grab Alex Wood? Drop Luis Serviano (sp?) for Brandon Finnigan?

    This is my first year playing in a points league and they have a limit on pitching but not on bats, would it be a better idea to keep streaming bats? I never kept more than 1 bench bat and lots of bench pitchers, but it doesn’t seem to be a big thing in this league.

    Drop deshields for haniger, margot or j dyson? i want more sb and upside for more production. This is a roto league and i own a few outfielders that get dinged up like polanco. So i will need to use this bat on off days or when guys are out of the lineup and perhaps at utility. Or if i fallback in sb. Dyson is hitting 9th and how much longer does he keep a starting job when he has always been a bench player?

    Hey there,

    Checking back in after having you look over my team a couple weeks ago. How do you feel about trying to pull a move for Trea Turner right now? Super cold bat, but I’ll take last year’s sample size of 300 ABs over that – I feel pretty good he can pull .330 OBP (OBP league) with decent power and elite steals.

    Maybe something like Eaton + Posey for Turner? Maybe a little steep but I also am looking to do a 2 for 1 so I can add one of the closers about to gain a role (Neris, Bush/Jeffress). Also someone cut JT Realmuto before the season so I picked him up…so I’m not with an entirely awful catcher if I trade Posey.

    • Daniel says:
      (link)

      @Daniel:

      5 X 5 league with OBP instead of average

      A top 30 overall bat

  54. Bassitt of Deplorables says:
    (link)

    Assuming you don’t need him and are just using the roster spot on a lottery ticket, would you rather have Haniger or one of the mid-season call up guys (Zimmer, Meadows, O’Neill, Brinson)?

    I know “a bird in handiger” (har har, sorry), but he seems like he’s one of those guys for whom ‘break out’ means he’s a 3rd outfielder you got for nothing, while some of those others guys could be 1s or 2s.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d want Haniger

    • Sinkhole Demayo says:

    I’ve got a Sox fan in my 12-man H-2-H (6×6 cat.) league so desperate to acquire Benintendi from me that he’s willing to give up Kris Bryant. He wants Beni paired with a pitcher, which I’m willing to do, except he’s now asking for our sweet baby, McCullers.

    He’s not interested in Nola or Taijuan, and he has concerns about Hill’s blister BS. My other pitchers are Carrasco and Maeda.

    How much is too much to acquire Bryant?

    I subscribed to MLB.tv for a month and have had a blast watching lots of games. That said, Byron Buxton is the worst hitter I’ve ever watched hit at the major league level. Granted, I haven’t watched a lot of baseball outside of my Tigers over the years, but I’ve never seen a hitter look as overmatched and absolutely hopeless in his approach as Buxton. How in the hell did this guy put up good numbers last September? I just can’t even imagine what it would look like for him to have a successful at bat.

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds fair

  88. I’ll give you Byron Buxton & a slightly used foot fetish porn (Footloose!) for Xander Boegarts? Definitely a bit overvalued. As a non-owner I’d be tempted to trade for him but I doubt the owner in my league is willing to sell low – he’s a Sahwks fan.

    I’ve been watching Buzton’s ABs where I can – he either looks overmatched, or like he’s pressing. I’m guessing it’s the latter, because no one with a decent track record k’s that much. They need to drop him down and bat him 7-8-9 to see if he settles down a little. Starting him off smack into the middle of the lineup seemed a little silly.

    Plus if he gets moved down, Sano might get moved up and as a Sano owner I say “yippee!” no matter how dumb it sounds.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Buxton looks about as bad as I’ve seen any hitter look ever, but 11 Ks in 18 ABs would do that

            @Grey: I am struggling with these two (own both). Solarte strong to last the season. So, as a position 2B (after eligibility), he seems more reliable and better to keep over Saladino (if Sal were the season every day player, SBs might favor him).

    hey Grey,

    Curious to know what you think of this trade. 8 team 5×5

    my:
    Cole
    J. Turner
    C. Santana

    for:
    Darvish
    Dozier
    Herrera

    I’m pretty happy with it, was only using Turner and Santana in Utility spots which I can now plug Dozier in to and use my Healy pickup in the other spot! Also have J.D. Martinez coming off the DL at some point to plug in there as well.

    Let me know what you think!

    Hey Grey…In a 12 team H2H 7×7 (standard + TB and OBP, HRs allowed and QS), I was offered Garret Cole and Joc Pederson for Cespedes and Kintzler. I’m going to turn that down.

    My team…

    C- Molina

    RP-Giles, Feliz, Bedrosian, Treinan, Kintzler,

    I am trying to craft a counter. Other owner has Pollack who has been impressive this week and appears healthy. Have we seen enough from Pollack yet that you would prefer him over Cespedes if you felt like you needed some more speed?

        @mike: who to start today?
        Kepler or Delino, or Healey

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yes, Glover

  148. mike says:
    (link)

    Also should I pickup Gravemen and drop Wacha, Daniel Norris, or shawn kelley. I need saves kind of I only have Diaz and Robertson in a 13 team Rotisserie. SO whos likely to get me saves without killing my other stats. THats why I mentioned will harris earlier. HE isnt etting saves but his k rate is high d he doesnt walk alot of hitters andis pretty good. Saves are important for me but not enough to start releivers that will hurt my other categorys.

    • Grey

    Greybones,

    Happy Sunday. Baseball starts for you at 10:00am, that must be fun. I’ve been staring at my computer hitting refresh seeing how many of my DTD guys are not playing….

    Anywho, I need some speed. 5×5 roto. Trade Just Dong for Polanco? No brainer?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Ha, it is Merkin! Yeah, take Polanco, no brainer

  151. Scooterboy says:

    Grey, would you start Maeda vs the Rockies today.? Holding a lead in ERA, but just barely. I have Maeda and McCullers going. My opponent has Cole, Quintana, and Estrada going. A little concerned about him pitching at Coors. Thanks !!!

      Grey says:

    Whattup Grey, Im a little concerned over Buxton. Got dropped to the 8 hole. Joc Pederson was cut in my league and Margot is still available. I really like Buxtons potential, its a shallow league however think I should pick-up Pederson or Margot for Bux or hold?

    • Grey

    Have you seen much of Gerrit Cole yet the year? Hasn’t looked good. For such good stuff he continues to underwhelm. Any early concerns?

    Hey grey! In a 12 H2H categories with OBP and OPS (no avg), 3 OF only:

    Are you dropping Keon or Joc fro me your OF3 platoon for:

    Margot
    Mazara
    Haniger

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Keon for Mazara

  161. ThE sHiT says:
    (link)

    Would Mazara/Margot/Darvish be enough to pry Odor away from you if you wanted an ace?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds fair, I wouldn’t trade for an ace just as I wouldn’t have drafted one, but I guess leagues matter

      • ThE sHiT says:
        (link)

        @Grey: heres my situation: my staff consists of CMart, Duffy, Harvey, Jameo, Gray, Finnegan, Garrett, Gsellman, Morton. I feel like i need another arm up top since the guys after Duffy are all risky.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          You don’t need an ace

      • ThE sHiT says:
        (link)

        @Grey: oh and i feel ya on the drafting an ace. The scoring is 6×6 with Losses added for SPs

  162. ThE sHiT says:
    (link)

    Sorry for all the questions today, but i have another. Same league, would you give up Duffy for Mazara?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Nope

      • ThE sHiT says:
