Yesterday, Carlos Carrasco went 5 1/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 3.95.  Whew.  Luckily, Carrasco was in that tier of preseason pitchers I said not to draft.  You still drafted him?  But I said he was like a skunked can of La Croix bacon-avocado cheeseburger flavor.  *scrunches nose*  You didn’t pay attention?  Aw geez.  Why?  Not to answer but to lower your head in shame.  Since you didn’t pay attention the first time, let me say it once more so you can again ignore it, “For the first time in his career, Carrasco (Careerasco?) threw 200 IP last year.  Not bad for a 25-year-old.  Less so for Carrasco who is 31 years old.  I know, I was surprised he was that old too.  Not as surprised, as say, a cat jumping out of a closet.  They should do a Cats revival on Broadway where the whole thing is cats jumping out of closets.”  And that’s me quoting me!  K/9 and velocity stabilizes fairly quickly and, well, his rates are kinda the dog’s breakfast.  His velocity is down over a mile, and his Ks are down from 10.2 to a 8.1 K/9, and he has the highest xFIP in six years.  If this doesn’t worry you, you might be slow on the uptake.  You repeat 3rd grade?  Do you think your password on all logins is *************?  Do you eat Thai and say, ‘Now my stomach is in knots?’  We might have to get you a tutor.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Francisco Lindor – 5-for-12, 3 runs, 6 RBIs and two homers (6, 7), hitting .278.  Live with me for a second.  Why are you moving my sweatpants to another closet?  Not speaking literally when I say live with me.  Metaphorically!  I ended up with Lindor/Giancarlo in three leagues, and I’m in 1st, and competitive in the other two.  If these Jolly Rockets get their shizz together, to the moon!  Photo proof:

Rajai Davis – 2-for-6 and his 6th steal.  “Be careful you don’t get any stems in my face hole.”  That’s Rajai, The King of SAGNOF, showing Bradley Zimmer how to feed him grapes.

Michael Brantley – 4-for-8, 2 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .348.  I have no love for Brantley, and BABIPs don’t lie, as Fantasy Shakira says, but Brantley’s doing all right.

Josh Donaldson – 4-for-11, 4 runs, 4 RBIs and his 4th and 5th homer, as he was activated from the DL.  To celebrate the occasion, he threw to first base like 50 Cent.

Yangervis Solarte – 8-for-10, 4 runs, 7 RBIs and his 8th and 9th homer, hitting .287.  If you drafted Yangervis and Jed Lowrie, people mocked your team a month ago.  Who’s having the last laugh?

Ronald Acuna – 3-for-5 and his 2nd homer, hitting .382.  If you haven’t watched his homer, you should.  It was an absolute blast to the 2nd deck in Metco.  Like a little Alfonso Soriano.  Maybe a little Andruw Jones.  Hey, this sounds like a baseball Mambo #5.   “A little Soriano in his swing…A little Andruw in his thang…A lotta Acuña on my teams!”

Ozzie Albies – 2-for-6, 3 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .280.  If Acuña is Soriano, Albies looks like Lindor.  Not a dig at all, but he doesn’t have light tower power like Acuña — tilde break of dawn!

Nick Markakis – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .336.  Sparkakis!  He won’t be in this afternoon’s Buy column, but I guess he could be there if he’s owned in less than 50% of leagues, the Buy cutoff.  If jean cutoffs are jorts, then the Buy cutoffs must be borts.

Kurt Suzuki – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .304.  On one team, Rudy has Cervelli and Suzuki.  I’ll let you do the math, but let’s just say if you had Contreras and Posey, you would not be doing as well.

Julio Teheran – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.65.  I told ya that Tahiniran can be as hot as Mike The Rooster Sauce or Spicymayohiro Tanaka!  Because you’re likely wondering, Teheran’s perfs (that’s what the kids call them): 8.5 K/9, 4.4 BB/9, 4.64 xFIP, .267 BABIP, 36.7% GB rate, velocity down two miles to 89 MPH, do I have to continue, really, seriously, I’m asking ya, though I’m putting commas instead of question marks, c’mon.

Jacob deGromMets are now reporting deGrom might make his next start.  The Mets’ training staff is the physical manifestation of “Merely a flesh wound.”

Jason Vargas – 4 2/3 IP, 6 ER.  Then relieving him was Matt Harvey – 2 IP, 5 ER.

Kris Medlen – Will join Diamondbacks’ rotation on Friday to face the Astros.  There’s a lot of pressure on Medlen as being one of the last remaining of the nearly extinct starters, the Flat-Billed Pitchypus.  Be safe out there, Medlen, and don’t go too close to the northern zone of Correa.

Patrick Corbin – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.15, WHIP at 0.76.  Fernando Salas messed up my Corbin win and for that reason Salas is no palindrome of mine.

Christian Walker – Sent down by the Diamondbacks.  Now all the zombies in Arizona will be godless.  Could Godley help?

Steven Souza – 0-for-4 as he returned from the DL.  Yesterday was whatevs, but I have mucho amor for the sweet stylings of Souza.  When I saw he returned from the DL, I went to pick him up in every league of mine.  Even some leagues where I already owned him.  Hey, I have a lot of leagues; you forget sometimes.

Paul Goldschmidt – 0-for-4, 1 run, hitting .245.  Yo, did Paul Goldschmidt retire?  He looks like Gold…Schmidt.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – Out through the All-Star break with a groin strain.  Why is Ryu’s groin injury sidelining him for a few months? Davie Roberts explained that Ryu’s groin muscle tore completely off his bone.  This is what happens when you spend four hours before a game in the sauna.  He braised his damn groin.  The Dodgers subsequently fired their trainer, Tony Roma.

Austin Barnes – 1-for-2, 2 runs and his 1st homer, hitting .196.  ‘Member in the preseason and your inner monologue was like, “I’m smarter than the entire world and Austin Barnes is an absolute steal.  His name is Barnes, and not Barmes, right?  I need to exclaim the right name to not embarrass myself.”  The aloud, “BARMES!  DAH!”

Trevor Williams – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.63.  I figured Williams in WASH was gonna end up looking ridden and put away wet.  All things considered, not a terrible start, I was still benching him everywhere, though.  I mean, I like him, but I’m not crazy, even Stream-o-Nator wasn’t having it.

Zach Davies – Hit the DL with a rotator cuff injury.  Davis will need time to work out The Kinks.

Mookie Betts – 2-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 12th homer, hitting .370.  The Betts to ever do it!  I try to avoid cursing on the site, but Betts makes me want to drop some of the most loving f-bombs.  Not even drop the f-bombs, but gently place them down on feather pillows.

David Price – 3 2/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA up to 5.11.  Your mileage may vary on Gallo, Choo, DeShizz and Mazara, but the Rangers are not a good team.  I know, not revolutionary thought here, but they had The Falefa King hitting third yesterday.

Nomar Mazara – 2-for-5, 5 RBIs and his 6th homer, and 3rd straight game with a homer.  Mezzuzah!  For what it’s worth, he was a preseason sleeper.  And it better be worth something!

Albert Pujols – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs, hitting .248.  Now at 2,999 hits in his career.  If he reaches the milestone today, he will be the oldest person to reach 3,000 hits at the age of 62.

Jaime Barria – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.46.  His K/9 is 4.15, and his BB/9 is 4.15.  Not the kind of symmetry we’re looking for.

Andrelton Simmons – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, hitting .327.  He is impossible to peg from year-to-year, and not simply because he’s an alien.  One year no power; one year lots of power; one year no average; another year average.  Andrelton, pick a lane!

Reynaldo Lopez – 6 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 8 baserunners, 0 Ks, ERA up to 2.43.  I really didn’t like what I was seeing from Reynaldo Lopez, but I was not fervently telling you to move on so… *taps chest*  That’s my b.  Actually, now that I think about it, what was the last thing I said about Rey-Lo? *searches site* DUDE!  He was last week’s Sell!  Oh, get out of here.  Don’t put that shizz on me.

Daniel Palka – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer in a week.  He won’t be in this afternoon’s Buy, but he could be a little schmotato for power.

Logan Morrison – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer.  He’s old and kind of garbage, but not that old, and not that garbagey.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see him heat up a little in the coming weeks.

Jake Odorizzi – 5 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 4.10.  Is there any pitcher that is more “he is what he is” than Odorizzi?  Maybe Lance Lynn.  And Ervin Santana.  The Twins like themselves some safe bleh, huh?

Trea Turner – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .281.  Would kinda prefer a single and three steals, but beggars can’t be choosers, which was prolly first said by someone who could afford to say it.  I’m pretty sure no actual beggar ever said it.

Ryan Zimmerman – 1-for-3 and his 5th homer, hitting .190.  Buy!  Seriously.  Nah, we don’t have time for vowels — Srsly!

Lance McCullers – 7 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.73 vs. Masahiro Tanaka – 6 IP, 3 ER, 5 baserunners (0 BBs), 5 Ks, ERA at 4.39.  I started both of these guys in multiple leagues — in one league, I started them both — and, instead of a medal or a pat on the back like I was some hero, I got two no decisions.  I’m going to punch myself.

Brad Peacock – 1 IP, 0 ER and the blown save.  Zero earned runs is totally deceiving, he dumped a load of garbage on Will Harris’ stat line (o IP, 3 ER).  Peacock kept his plumage clean.

Jorge Soler – 1-for-4, 3 runs and his 4th homer and 2nd homer in three games.  Soler will be in this afternoon’s Buy column, but you don’t have to wait for that.  You can though, since he’ll prolly be there still.

Salvador Perez – 2 hits, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, and yesterday was two days since Tuesday!  AHHH!!!!  RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!  SERIOUSLY, RUNNING IS GOOD FOR YOUR CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH.  OH, AND SORRY, MY CAPS LOCK BUTTON MIGHT’VE BROKE.

Alex Gordon – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 2nd homer, hitting .303.  Having a very under-the-radar season.  The radar is measuring “Worthwhile Fantasy Outfielers” and he’s way under that.

Miguel Cabrera – Left yesterday’s game with a hamstring strain.  Not sure why I’m thinking of Andruw Jones so much, but I wonder if there’s a way to figure out the breaking down of players who are more naturally talented.  It seems guys like Andruw, Hanley, Miggy, etc. break down quicker because they were more naturally gifted.  This may be a lot of hooey.

Nicholas Castellanos – 3-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .309.  The Greek God of Hard Contact turned around lightning with a thunderous 383 foot blast, exclaiming, “Get that out of my house!  But you don’t have to go far, just barely past the fence.”  The Greek God of Hard Contact is nothing if not polite.

Sean Manaea – 6 IP, 4 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA up to 1.63.  The Regression Fairies are partial to early Hilary Duff, they believe in aromatherapy and they will ruin your ratios.

Stephen Piscotty – 1-for-3 and his 2nd homer.  Those of you that drafted him two years ago and fell into a ditch for 24 months, rejoice!

Nelson Cruz – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer.  I would not bet against Cruz hitting 35 homers.  Please, who’s got money to bet, I run a blog.

Ichiro Suzuki – Retired from baseball.  Much like Griffey, retirement was accelerated with sleeping during games.  At one point, the M’s found Ichiro asleep in the bat rack.  He said, “Sorry, this is just like one of those state-of-the-art Japanese hotels.”

      @john: Please correct if wrong, but I understand Villanueva thus far has only been hitting lefties and doing nothing at all against righties so check the probables if you can do daily settings. I’m sitting him until Hill on Sunday.

        @JakeTPE: I would correct you if I knew. But I don’t know, NewTown was just mentioned by someone that wants one of my closers. I have Sano and Suarez right now. So I was just looking at the potential usefulness of a trade.

      • curiousgeorgespringer says:

    Grey!

    Fantastic write-up, gripping like an episode of Murder She Wrote like the murder that she wrote. Wanted to rap one off but I don’t have the know-how like you, OSB and Nick the Dick. Maybe in my next lifetime!

    a. McCullers start was all right, same thing with Tanaka. Will Smith was not-so-innocent in having all 3 inherited runners he allowed to score. After all, he was guilty as charged for letting the 3 base runners get on with no outs and not Peacock.

    b. On a sober note, well done I – CHI – RO! Long live #51!!! The guy is a living legend. Too bad he and his wife don’t have any children. He should donate his sperm to Cooperstown, maybe they’ll need it in the future. #Cryogenics

    c. Mark Twain quote of the day for May 4

    Why shouldn’t truth be stranger than fiction? Fiction, after all, has to make sense.

    d. Have a gr8 or Greyt weekend. May your teams score many runs, RBIs and HRs and may they also garner saves, wins and rake in strikeouts! Also may you gain in the other categories!

    Cheers,

        Thanks, man. Start Kingham tonight in a 5X5 RCL?

        Am overall 5th in pitching.

        Three-way tie for 7th in wins (stuck on 15 for a while)
        8th in IP at 249.1 IP
        5th in Ks at 286, 5 behind 4th place and 18 ahead of 6th place
        6th in ERA at 3.43, 5th is at 3.18 and 7th is at 3.61
        4th in WHIP at 1.135, 3rd is at 1.120 and 5th is at 1.136

        Guess I don’t want to screw the pooch in WHIP and ERA. I had done that a lot with failed streamers (like Yonny and company). Would starting Kingham tonight screw me in WHIP and ERA?

        Cheers,

    • b the esq. says:
      (link)

      @Not the real Hubie Brooks: Jansen is the closer, no question. Fields isn’t getting significant saves unless Jansen gets hurt.

        @b the esq.: Sure seems like Jansen is nursing some sort of injury with velo issues, odd usage patterns, etc.

    I’ve won every pitching cat every week. My season era and whip are 2.83 and 1.08 respectively. Thank you in advance!

            Thanks for talking me off a ledge on the Braun berrios deal.

            Had someone offer me, get this, Hoskins and a ninth ish round pick for Bryant berrios and last round pick. And this wasn’t an initial offer. It was a counter to a Hoskins for berrios straight up or with another piece going his way. Which I thought was fair.

      @Mickey Maloney: I wouldn’t touch Hellickson or Romero unless in a deep league

    • curiousgeorgespringer says:
      (link)

      @Mickey Maloney: I’d put Romero above Hellickson for sure. He’s a top 100 prospect with great stuff. He was sitting at 95-96 and touching 99 (if you round 98.6 up). He generated 12 swinging strikes, including 4 with his slider. He does have control issues, so there’s risk, but also a ton of upside.

    • Dave Funnell says:

    Morning Grey,

    Teoscar or Soler ROS?

    Thanks.

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      @Kas: To me, this is the “this or that” question of the day. I own both in a few places, but was going to post this same question if you didn’t, Kas.

      Soler has not been available to scoop (in leagues that I don’t own him) for at least a week now. People believe in the breakout.

      • OddBall Herrera says:
        (link)

        @knucks:

        Think of it this way –

        Soler is a post-adjustment breakout. He was nuts when he started, then got exploited, and now appears to have figured something out.

        Teoscar, particularly with that SwStr%, is a pre-adjustment breakout. Maybe he has the same or higher upside as Soler, but he has some valleys ahead of him that Soler, to be optimistic, has already worked his way through.

        Grabbing a guy who’s never struggled and hoping that it stays that way is fun, but I’ll take Soler here, particularly because KC has every reason to let him sink or swim this season, while Teoscar is a few bad weeks from losing ABs to Grichuk.

        • knucks says:
          (link)

          @OddBall Herrera: Great points OBH! I like your take here. I’m pushing Teoscar trades all over in my leagues to see what I can get. Surprisingly, not much yet. But he could hit two dingers tonight and I could sell him for something super useful.

          Or, of course, he could lose ABs to a healthy Grichuk in a few short weeks, like you sad. And if that happens, I’m coming back to blame you!! Kidding, I would be coming back to post to all the comments asking if he is a drop… “should have listened to OBH on 04MAY. The Force was strong with that one.” We’ll see!

      use the razzball trade analyzer, put them in and see their projections. That’s what I do with most of my a or b questions.

        @Dave Funnell: Me as well Dave, I do the same. But you could make this same comment youre making here about nearly everyone’s comments on the site. Always helpful to get Grey’s opinion as well, then use that and the trade analyzer, plus your own outlook/opinions to come to a decision sometimes.

    I wrote you about a trade a week ago but it has now morphed. 7×7 weekly league (obp) with 5 keeps. Team is the following
    C- Contreras, 1- Goldy, 2- Schoop (Pereza now), 3 Rendon, ss Simmons, OF Trout, Brantley, Herrera, Util – Shaw, bench – sano, Mancini. Not listing pitchers bc this trade is about offense. I would get Springer and Edwin E for goldschmidt. I’d lose a keeper but think Springer is a top 50 keeper as well. I have max and severino as sps so they are keepers as well. Would you make the trade to make the OF stronger but 1B slightly weaker.

        @Slappy Jack:

        yea I agree. I’m not sure on Darvish, though he is up there in the buy low tool that razzball has…..could be a nice second half with better weather.

        I may be alone on this isalnd, but I don’t trust Story. But he can hit for power. if your avg can sustain it, he’s a good add.

    Grey,

    12-tm H2H cat keeper (keep 12) CATS – (9) R,H,HR,RBI,SB,BB,AVG,OPS,XBH – (8) W,CG,SV,K,GIDP,ERA,WHIP,QS. LIMIT of 35 moves – no streaming

    A team in the league has approached me asking for a trade and he wants power. He really wants Arenado off me (which I told him would be very hard) but maybe I can create something where I send Goldy or Blackmon or another top power. He knows I love Severino and has offered him up as trade bait.
    My team is below and these are some of the guys on his team: K. Davis, A. Judge(who he wanted to trade at the start of the season), J. Schoop, L. Severino, T. Willaims, R. Porcello, C. Morton, C. Anderson, D. Pom, T. Roark.

    I’m also in a predicament as I need to drop (2) players from my team (to which I would offer to this guy) as I need to move Xander and Gohara off the DL spots.

    If you we’re trying to get Severino and knowing he wants a strong bat, who would you put together in a trade (I know you prefer smaller trades (ie 1 for 1) but im definitely down for a larger 3 for 2 or bigger if your up for the balancing). Any help with this is greatly appreciated – I’m having trouble with hometown fantasy team goggles, ie tough to let my guys go)

    My team:
    C – W. Ramos
    1B – P. Goldschmidt
    2B – B. Dozier
    3B – N. Arenado
    SS – T. Turner
    CI – E. Suarez
    MI – T. Anderson
    LF – N. Mazara
    CF – C. Blackmon
    RF – M. Haniger
    Util – C. Yelich
    BN – T. Mancini
    BN – T. Hernandez
    BN – N. Senzel (Not Active)
    DL – X. Bogaerts
    DL – J. Turner (10-day DL)

    SP – C. Carrasco
    SP – J. Verlander
    SP – J. Paxton
    RP – H. Strickland
    RP – M. Minor
    P – J. Quintana
    P – J. Junis
    BN – W. Buehler (Not Active)
    BN – J. Flaherty (Not Active)
    BN – M. Kopech (Not Active)
    DL – L. Gohara (Not Active)
    DL – D. Salazar (10-day DL)

      @MarV: pretty snappy 12team roster
      Minor should probably not be on your team.
      I’d also drop Gohara, he is way out of place on that team imo…
      I don’t get the hype on him tbh, I think a lot of people are going to be sorely disappointed

      You need saves my man, not more SP
      I’d be trying to shop like Buehler and Flaherty for a closer, they are talented but don’t project to being 175ip+ mlb guys anytime soon, think 130-150ip with good K’s and random ratios (because they are rookies and pitching in the summer is hard).

      also, what is the idea behind having OPS and BB and XBH as league stats?

  31. The Skrimmer says:

    I have both Pomeranz @NYY and @TOR AND Castillo v NYM and @LAD as two start pitchers this week on my bench. Would you start either of them in place of the following one start pitchers: Arrieta v NYM OR Wacha @SD. I am also starting 3 RPs: Colome, Hand, and Norris…one of those could be benched as well in place of a 2-start pitcher.

      @Joel: oh, may as well ask my daily question. Bauer was drafted one pick before I could snag him. Noal 2 picks. Ugg. Anyway, I’ve been contemplating a means of acquiring Bauer somehow. I have a strong hitting core. Pitchers are based on your drafting guide (did well with some waiver pickups too—Quintana!) but I could really use Bauer…I think.

    I play in a 3-year keeper league. Am I crazy to offer Rafael Devers for Vlad Guerrero Jr.? I can slot in Christian Villanueva at 3B if I trade Devers. (I don’t think the guy with Guerrero will go for it, but I can’t tell which one of us is bananas.)

    Ryu‘s injury sounds gnarly. Does anyone know of anyone else, especially a pitcher coming back from this type of injury mid-season? I’m wondering if it’s even worth holding him as a DL spot. Might replace his DL spot with Melancon…

    what do you think?

    Hey Grey,
    12-team Y! league, just swapped my Christian Villanueva for his Ryan Zimmerman. Villanueva has been great but his track record for power isn’t stellar (his typical ISO in the minors was .2 at the highest and he’s still hovering around .4) and his average seems like it’s going to drop; on the other side, Zimmerman is always an injury concern but his BABIP is still ony .195 and he’s already starting to pick it up. How did I do?

    1. Offer my $1 Ed. Rod (keepable at $6) for $5 Pivetta (keepable at $10)?

    2. Starting Odor and Rendon right now because my DL is full of injured guys I don’t want to drop. I have $5 Senzel (keepable at $10) on my bench… Was hoping he’d get the call with Gennett ailing, but with the reports of Senzel’s vertigo issue cropping up again I don’t know how much longer I can stash him with all the injured guys I’ve got.

    Drop Senzel for schmotato Kipnis so I can bench Odor?

    I could also drop a DL guy instead of Senzel or just hold pat and start Rendon and Odor until they return from DL. I’ve got Puig, Eaton, $1 Jimmy Nelson (keepable at $6), Robbie Ray and the above mentioned Odor and Rendon.

    Who would you drop?

    Thanks!

    • bigbear says:

      @Clive: Agree with bigbear

    • batflix says:
      (link)

      @Clive:
      How many do you keep?
      But, yeah man, Vladdy Jr gonna go all Prince Fielder on us as soon as next year, go get him
      I’m dropping Hanley there, easy, 2 HR in the last 30 and the Bull semen seems to be wearing off, and he’s older than most people think
      but wouldn’t blink twice about Kela either depending on the Saves situation in your league
      if someone dropped Conforto in my keeper league he’s easy the top waiver priority pick,
      are you guys crazy? This might now be his best season coming off a serious injury but imo he’s a great keeper player who put up 930+ ops last year at 24 yrs old
      in 2016 10 players had a 930 ops, 17 in ’17 ; very rarely does a young player put up a number like that without lots of talent
      but like I asked first , if you only keep like 3 then .. none of this matters

      • Clive says:
        (link)

        @batflix: Yeah I agree. He’s only had 70 ABs this year (Conforto) too early to give up on him.. we keep 5 and I already have 5 I want to keep, but I could potentially trade a great keeper down the stretch to a team out of contention for some playoff ammo (Ace SP, etc).. always good to have options.

    Carrasco’s making me cry (Cryasco? Carrascry? Cryascry?) but I didn’t start razzing until the season started.

    • bigbear says:

      @Cheap Seats: You’re not dropping him. You may bench him for some starts. But I’ll probably be trotting him out there for most match-ups at this point. He’s still better than most of what you’ll find on the waivers. You’re just not getting the #1-2 ace you hoped for.

      I’d like to say Franchy, but SD… I’d probably go with Hicks and the NYY goliath.

    Great work my man. I need some advice, and sorry about how long this will be. 12 team h2h 6×6 cats league with obp and qs with the traditional categories. Pitching is crazy inflated in this league and I’m looking longterm with my roster. You can keep up to 9 and contracts go up $3 per year. My team is as follows:
    C: Yadi
    1b: Goldy, 2 years at $38
    2b: Albies, has not signed a contract (will have to sign him after this year) likely to 4 years at 20
    3b: Arenado, 3 years at like 31 or something
    ss: Tim anderson
    Of: Trout, 3 years at 50
    Springer, 2 years at 20
    Acuna, wll have to sign him after this year, likely will be 4 years at 19
    Teoscar
    Eddie Rosario
    Devers, could be signed at end of year if he picks it up

    Pitchers: Corbin, Manaea, clevinger, castillo for one more year at 13, weaver, Taillon, Aaron Sanchez, rich hill, Junis, Soroka, Lucchesi, Jmont and Rodon on DL.

    So I was thinking about moving goldy due to his price and since I will be signing Acuna and albies to long term deals at the end of this year. Also goldy looks lethargic and had a horrible end to his last season and the humidor might actually be affecting him (gasp). After speaking with some people about it I have the following offers:

    1. Goldy and Rich hill for Abreu (won’t keep) and Newcomb

    2. Goldy and lucchesi for Gohara, Abreu and newcomb

    3. Goldy and rich hill for Bellinger on a 4 year deal at 19 per year.

    The first two have been proposed to where I am hoping the guy for trade 3 will do it. So which trade would you do? Or would you just wait on Goldy? Thanks man.

    • TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:
      (link)

      @TobiasFunkeAnalRapist: I also have walker buehler, I figure my keepers would be like trout, arenado, albies, acuna, maybe devers or if one of those OF go off. and then castillo and 3 other pitchers (manaea, corbin, one of those young guys etc.) I feel like Goldy is expendable due to the price of some of my other guys.

    I went to the M’s game last night- gorgeous facility, nearly empty, beer cost almost as much as the ticket- and realized that I own more Mariners than I expected. Without any research to back up my assertion I’ll say they’re more ownable than most other lineups.
    On top of that, the Edwin Diaz intro video is bonkers, I can’t find it online so I guess folks will have to get to Safeco to see it. The $15 bleacher seats are worth it.

    Quick pitching question; at the bottom half of my rotation in a 12 team H2H redraft, would you lose any of Gausman, Ed-Rod, or Wacha for Trevor Williams, Walker Buehler, or Teheran? I’m inclined to do the full switch. Thanks a bunch.

    Points league question. Was offered Darvish and Boxberger for Carrasco. Is Darvish gonna get back to a “set it and forget it” pitcher or is he really this bad/average moving forward?

    Also, is Archer someone to target in a trade based on the likelihood(?) that he gets traded to a better team this summer? I know he can rack up Ks when he’s on, but his past few years have been pretty average.

  109. Excellent analogy.

    Montgomery worth stashing on my DL or nah?

        @Grey: How many games do you go to see each year? What teams? I live kinda close to Fenway but only end up going once or twice a year. Then I spend the whole game checking my fantasy results on my phone.

          I’m 20 minutes from Dodger Stadium, I try to go once or twice a year — I used to live 500 feet from Fenway and went a few times a year, when tix were cheap

    Buehler over Soroka?

      Buehler

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Grey: as a piggyback – I picked up Buehler for my 10-teamer (dropped barraclough).

        With news from Dave Roberts that he’ll be in the rotation for the foreseeable future, is he a guy who has the upside to be worth stashing as long as he is starting, or more of a streamer?

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          I’d own him in any league

    for you which order are these 3… Choo, Mancini, Canha?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Mancini

      • Willy Mo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: how much are you buying into Cahnas breakout? im shocked he available in my expensive 12 team deep bench head to head cats league. pretty sharp competition with limited in season moves allowed so i guess folks are afraid they have seen this story before with canha, but i really wana take a stab with him

        i guess im kind of concerned he loses playing time if/when fowler is called up but wouldnt they jus play canha in the corners over piscoti or joyce?

        would you cut choo for canha?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          He looks like he’ll end up more valuable than Choo, which isn’t saying a ton… Maybe 20/.280/counting stats

    Folty at home vs the Meh Giants seems like a trap……. thoughts?

    • anicholsnj says:
      (link)

      @jon: Crawford goes yard. He pitches OK, but loses out on a QS when he gives up a 4th or 5th run in the 6th. Still gets you the Ks you’d expect. That’s my guess. SON is into it but not over the moon, unsure if you had already checked.

      • jon says:
        (link)

        @anicholsnj:

        Yeah im in a QS league so i may sit this one out

        thank for the info

        • anicholsnj says:
          (link)

          @jon: No prob. To be clear, I’m streaming him in a 12 team QS league myself… as the numbers from Rudy tell us we should. I’m just giving you my realistic expectations and maybe expecting or anticipating the letdown myself.

      • Grey

        Grey says:

    Rather have Newcomb or Rich Hill?

    6 cats, QS instead of wins, K/BB is extra category

      Hill

  121. Scott says:

    Is buehler even worth owning in qs format? He hasn’t gone more than 5 innings in the majors or minors this year? I like him, but not sure if it is worth it. Thanks

      Assuming you have other categories, yes

    Am I crazy to be a little bit excited about Joey Bats joining the Bravos? As a freeman owner I feel like this could be a good thing. He’s got to be more intimidating behind freeman then Nick Markakis, right?

    Reportedly crushed it in AAA before the call up. Maybe worth a cheap power grab.
