Yesterday, Carlos Carrasco went 6 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.41, as the Indians won their 162nd game, and four-thousandth in a row.  Hayzeus Cristo, who wants some of the Indians right now?  Who?  Or, more appropriately with the Indians, how?  They’re fired up like their relatives just got a bad case of the pox and they’re all out of peace to put in their pipe.  Am I right?  Or am I just borderline racist?!  You tell me, Redskins fans!  By the way, you know your team name is racist when you can substitute in Redskins and it makes sense, i.e., “The Cleveland Redskins won last night, oh, I’m sorry, I mean Indians.”

Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Bradley Zimmer – Out for the season after breaking his hand sliding into 1st base.  As my Little League coach once said to me, “Never slide into first, and is your mom single?”

Jason Kipnis – When he returns from his hamstring injury, he will see time in center field.  If I may read between the lines, this is saying the Indians are winning without him, they like Yandy Diaz (2-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI) and they’re hoping Kipnis hurts himself again.  This was overheard in the clubhouse, “Not sure of Kipnis’ mobility when he returns, so it’s prolly best to play him at–”  “The most demanding position.  Got it, thanks!”

Jose Ramirez – 1-for-1, 3 RBIs and his 26th homer, but left after being hit on the forearm.  Not cool, Detroit, if you’re throwing at guys who are headed to the playoffs.  Lebron’s gonna sic his hairline after you.

Michael Fulmer – Will undergo elbow surgery because he went to see Dr. James Andrews.  If he would’ve been seen by one of Dr. Freeze’s associates, he might’ve been able to rehab.  The Tigers are saying Fulmer should be fine for Spring Training; they’re also saying the Tigers won’t be competitive for four years.

Myles Jaye – 3 2/3 IP, 7 ER.  Okay, not good, but Jaye was kick ass in The Crying Game and you can never take that from us!

Yolmer Sanchez – 2-for-5, 3 runs, and hitting near-.350 in the last week with two homers.  You in March, “Psyched I got Cano for my H2H playoffs.”  You now, “Yolmer over Cano?  Just tell me to pull the trigger, man!”  Yolmer isn’t anything special, but does appear to be a hot schmotato.

Yoan Moncada – 3-for-6, 2 runs, 2 RBIs, hitting .197, and a homer three games ago.  Hakuna Moncada, which is Hawaiian for, “I’d still worry about his contact issues, but maybe his bat is heating up.”

Adam Engel – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and a slam (6) and legs (7).  Engel was one of the greatest I’ve ever seen in the squared-circle–Sorry, I was reading a Kurt Angle fan site.  Adam Engel has great speed for SAGNOF, but not a whole lot else.

Jose Abreu – 4-for-5, 1 run, 2 RBIs, hitting .306, and having one of the best three-game stretches in baseball this season.  Right now, dude is on it like a red underlined 100.

Reynaldo Lopez – 6 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 1 K, ERA at 4.76.  Pitching is a landmine that even Princess Di wouldn’t cross.

Jason Hammel – 3 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 4.91.  Not to defend the Stream-o-Nator, because Hammel burned a lot of us yesterday, but he got singled to death like a Forensic Files about a stripper.

Danny Duffy – Threw a simulated game.  The Royals might take it easy with Duffy in the final weeks.  Maybe baby him for the playoffs, because nowadays every team makes the playoffs except the Padres.

Jarrod Dyson – Will have sports hernia surgery.  Dyson had but one request, he didn’t want Taillon’s doctor.

Brandon Moss – 2-for-3 and his 20th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  I saw he homered on Sunday, but didn’t mention it, because he’s a platoon guy.  Now, I’m thinking maybe schmotato.

Mark Trumbo – 1-for-4 and his 23rd homer, hitting .240.  Coming into this game he had two hits in 20 at-bats, and 1 home run.  So, yes, two homers in the last week for him, but Trumbo’s bat speed is like he’s swinging a sledgehammer.  And not cool like Dave Parker in an on-deck circle.

Ryan Goins – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs, and his 7th homer.  I was thisclose to giving him a batty call, but I was like, “He sucks, and his name is so close to Groins.”  Stupid, prudish, sexy AF Grey!

Teoscar Hernandez – 2-for-4, 1 run, hitting .321.  Yesterday, I called him a hot schmotato.  Today, I’m saying same same.

Dominic Leone – 1 IP, 0 ER and the save.  On Sunday, Luis Santos got a save.  In other words, the Jays are just as surprised as you when they have a lead in the ninth and have no clearcut plan while Osuna’s struggling.

Richard Urena – 1-for-4, 1 RBI as he hit leadoff.  He’s a Jays rookie call-up who had five homers and hit .247 in Double-A in 551 plate appearances.  Also, don’t call him Dick Urethra.

Andrew Heaney – Dealing with a shoulder impingement.  Angels said he’s questionable for his next start.  I’m guessing they’re using the Tinder definition of questionable, which means ‘no chance in hell.’

Alex Meyer – Will undergo labrum surgery on his shoulder, and it’s the same shoulder he’s had problems with for years.  Better watch out, Mets, the Angels’ trainers are gaining on you.

Mitch Haniger – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer.  Whew, happy to see that since I told about hundred people in the comments yesterday to grab Haniger.  Here’s hoping for a huge week, unless you didn’t listen to me, then screw Haniger!

Kyle Seager – 1-for-4 and his 23rd homer.  He’s tacking some garbage time homers onto his stat-line that looked terrible in August.  Though, since 1977, it’s been garbage time for the Mariners.  Harsh!

Willie Calhoun – Called up by the Rangers.  Halle Berry Lujah!  Now, he only needs to fight seven guys for playing time.  That’s almost as bad to think about as Ted Cruz pleasuring himself.  Calhoun’s been covered on this site about six-bajillion times.  If you click his name, you’ll be magically transported to his most recent articles and earn me .00000000001 of a cent.  I kinda love him, and he’s on my early 2018 Rookie of the Year sexpots.  For now, he needs playing time, which I’m not sure he has.

Cole Hamels – 6 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.05.  Hamels has quietly become just another pitcher.  Shame isn’t it?  Not a shame, a product, as Treach from Naughty by Nature would say.

Delino DeShields – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 5th homer.  Last preseason, I said Delino had ten homer power.  I just didn’t mention it would be in 297 career games.

Brandon Woodruff – 5 IP, 6 ER, ERA up to 3.14.  The Regression Fairies can eat a D!  Ugh, now was not the time to be regressing to the mean.  Should’ve known better to trust a guy whose last name sounds like dogwood.  Apparently, his bark is worse than his bite.

Steven Brault – 6 IP, 0 ER, 2 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.38.  I have a funny/not funny story about Brault.  I asked Halp at the All-Star break to give me one pitcher to grab in an NL-Only league.  A pitcher who would be up and in the rotation in the 2nd half.  Of course, Brault was his suggestion.  Yeah, I dropped Brault last week.  Facepalm.  By the way, the podcast had technical difficulties.  We’re recording today for tomorrow.  Thank you for your patience, said the doctor.

Andrew McCutchen – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 24th homer, hitting .275.  Also, in this game, Starling Marte (1-for-5, 2 RBIs) and his 6th homer.  What does this mean?  They were just waiting for you to drop them.

Nolan Arenado – 2-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 33rd homer.  Hey, honey, I got rid of all our pens, and replaced them with feather quills.  NOOOOOO!!!  Torenado!!!

Zack Greinke – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.99.  Jake Barrett ended up blowing Greinke’s win, which is why Greinke just lost Murray Chass’ Cy Young vote.

Clint Frazier – Activated from the DL.  Zimmer and Clint Frazier came to the majors at the same time.  Then Zimmer gets injured the same time Frazier returns.  I don’t know, Frazier and Zimmer seem to be synced in some weird way, like girls in a dormitory.

Todd Frazier – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 24th homer, hitting .210.  This is not earth-shattering information, but it’s not easy to hit .210.  Frazier and Odor are just making it look easy.

Greg Bird – Out with back tightness.  If Greg had a Native American name, it would be Wounded Bird.

CC Sabathia – 4 1/3 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 3.85 vs. Jake Odorizzi – 3 2/3 IP, 1 ER (4 unearned), 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.52.  That was like a ticker tease and ticker shock combined in one game.  CC’s owners, “Yes, he got the win…Wait a minute, wha’ happened?”  Odorizzi’s owners, “Oh, no, he got rocked…Wait, huh?”

Ryan Vogelsong – Announced his retirement.  Elton John released a new version of ‘Your Song’ for the occasion.  “My gift is my Vogelsong, and this one’s for you…And you can tell everybody this is your Vogelsong…It may be quite simply me repeating the name Vogelsong, but now he’s done…I hope you don’t mind!  I hope you don’t mind!”

    Somebody dropped Archer in my H2H league. I am going to pick him up off of waivers.

    Curious if you feel confident in him for his start on Wednesday vs the Yankees at CitiField?

    Also, would you drop for Justin Turner or Jake Lamb? Hate to drop either but neither have been very productive in the second half. I had picked up Happ and Nick Williams last week to start over both guys.

    I wish I could drop Polanco but he is my only SS and there isn’t anything better to pick up.

        Thank you very much. Can’t believe I dropped a guy with 27 homers and 97 RBI’s but he hasn’t done much of anything the past month and a half. I don’t think he has homered in three weeks and he is non-competitive vs. LHPs.

        Same thing happened last year so next year I guess it would be smart to draft him and trade him around July 15th.

    Grey!

    Great write-up! Didn’t get a chance to follow any of the games until your fantastic write-up!

    a. But, but, but…you missed Nicky D going 1/5 with a 1 run and 1 RBI!!! I thought you liked it when guys get counting stats without doing anything else. Just kidding, man! If you were to report on every single player who played last night you’d be called ‘Box Score Grey’.

    b. Started Woodruff last night. I feel just like I felt when I started Montero last Monday! Deja vu all over again! Ugh!

    c. Random Rambo quote of the day

    John Rambo Quote of the day for April 21-23 and 24

    Lester (at base camp): ‘Listen, Will. You sure picked one hell of a guy to mess around with! Just came over the teletype a few minutes ago. John Rambo is a Vietnam vet. He’s a Green Beret, Congressional Medal of Honor! Guy’s a war hero!’

    Sheriff: ‘Jesus, that freak?! I knew there was something about that guy!’

    Lester (at base camp): ‘I double checked it, Will. What do you want me to do?’

    Sheriff: ‘I want you to do what I told you to do, goddamn it! Get that chopper back here now! Out.’

    April 24

    Mitch: ‘Green Beret! War hero! – That’s great! That’s just great!’

    Sheriff: ‘- Shut your mouth! What the hell’s the matter with you guys? He’s one man…wounded!’

    Mitch: ‘Those Green Berets…they’re real bad asses. Why don’t you let the State Police handle this?’

    Sheriff: ‘Look. Look at him…look at him! That’s Art Gault, boy! He and I were friends when your momma was still wiping your nose! Now he’s dead. He’s dead! Because of that psycho out there! Now you listen boy, you listen to me good: I’m gonna get that son of a bitch… and I’m gonna pin that Congressional Medal of Honor to his liver! And I’m gonna do it, with you, or without you! We’re closin’ in, the scent’s getting stronger. All right, keep your eyes open!’

    R, RBI, SB are dead heats at this point. Which OF should I start tonight?

    Happ vs Gsellman
    Upton vs Verlander
    Taylor vs Teheran

    Upton obviously is best hitter, but hasn’t been great in the last week and has the worst matchup. Taylor is the worst hitter, but has been crazy hot and has a great matchup, especially in the SB department. Thanks Grey!

    Coming down to the wire. thanks for all the advice this year. Two more for you today (5×5 league, weekly lineups):

    1) Please rank top three from the following for SP slots:
    Skaggs vHOU (-$1.7), vCLE ($3.3) – 2 starts, decent pitcher, but tough opponents
    Mahle @STL (-$2.6), vSTL ($1.1) – meh
    Flaherty vCIN ($3.3), maybe another start @CIN, but not on SON.
    Hill @WAS (-$1.3) – Highly ranked in this site’s top 100 starters, but SON doesn’t like this one.
    Faria vBOS (-$3.0) – fresh off the DL, avoid?
    Ryu maybe @WAS, but nothing on SON.

    2) Please rank top three for RP slots (I am locked in on saves, so …)
    Duffy – Not yet on SON, but might return against CLE this weekend.
    Stratton vARI (-$1.5)
    Bridwell vTEX (-$1.7)
    Stephenson vPIT (-$10.0)
    T. Williams @CIN (-$10.5)
    Farmer @CLE (-$21.2), vOAK (-$3.1)
    Colome/Green, Bearclaw – these guys are too risky, keep one or more true RPs

    Thanks again.

        @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: yeah – Ryu’s last start was on the 5th. If he only skips one start, next one would be over the weekend at Washington. If he skips two starts then, whatever, I don’t care any more.

    Kyle Gibson vs San Diego (T Wood) – Tuesday

    Hey all — I need a little consult on who to start in a H2H playoff matchup. categories are R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, and SLG.

    I need to pick two of these guys (and one has to be a catcher)

    Posey @SF v. Kershaw (LHP) — Posey has a pretty significant platoon split (he’s got a 1.091 OPS v. LHPs), but bad park and Kershaw is obviously not just any lefty. Posey is hot right now (1.002 OPS over the L7), but he hasn’t homered in a month (literally, zero homers in the last month).

    Zunino @TEX v. Gonzalez (RHP)– Good park, and a weak starter. Zunino got sort of hot last week, but has cooled off more recently. Seems like a decent bet to pop a homer given the matchup and ballpark.

    Castellanos @CLE v. Kluber (RHP) — Ugh. Castellanos has been hot lately as well (1.107 OPS over the L7 and 3 homers over the last two weeks), but he doesn’t hit RHPs nearly as well as LHPs (.722 OPS vs RHPs; .952 v LHPs).

    Nimmo @CHC v. Quintana (LHP) — Also has been hot lately (1.210 OPS over the L7), but he’s got a pretty massive platoon split, with a .585 OPS v. LHPs and a .875 OPS against RHPs. Quintana isn’t Kershaw or Kluber, but Nimmo isn’t Posey (or Castellanos, even).

    Aside from Posey, who is pretty even, each of these guys has a better OPS at home than on the road. In the case of Zunino and Nimmo, though, I don’t think I trust that here because they’re going to be playing in pretty favorable parks today.

    Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to give the pertinent information.

    Bottom line — I need to start one of the catchers and then one of the remaining three. Anyone have thoughts?

      • Curious George Springer says:
        (link)

        @Grey: thanks! Zunino over Nimmo (in case someone else isn’t starting today). Thanks!

    Great stuff as always. Your dedication in the face of a 10% audience (playoffs and Football do that) is admirable.

    H2H, first round of the playoffs,
    Tied on W, -4 Ks, ahead on ERA (4.8 to5.8) & WHIP (1.3 to 1.6)
    Who to start today?
    Snell, Gibson, or Walker?
    (Opponent grabbed Bundy – I just couldn’t pull that trigger)
    My Pref is Gibson vs SD, but high R predicted. Snell v NYY, Bombers could kill him (and me), and Colorado has been too good lately. One last detail, tomorrow he has Lester, Archer, and Darvish, so maybe I focus on hitting…

    • Roger Anderson says:
      (link)

      @Roger Anderson: He also grabbed Pivetta, so, it looks like I need to go for low ERA and WHIP (I lead in the matchup 7-3-2) If I lose Ks and Ws I still win the match assuming I can hold or gain elsewhere.
      So, using the logic of everyone’s favorite Sicilian – Vizzini – clearly, I must choose Walker. ERA of 1.31 over last 30 days.

      • Curious George Springer says:
        (link)

        @Roger Anderson: Is that Taijuan Walker? I don’t think I would trust him in AZ against COL if that’s his matchup.

        • Roger Anderson says:
          (link)

          @Curious George Springer: I have a lot f IP, and so does he. He would need 2 perfect games to catch me, unless I have a major fall, like Woodruff yesterday. That can’t happen twice can it?

          Thanks for your advice. Best of luck in your matchups.

    • Curious George Springer says:
      (link)

      @Roger Anderson: I don’t know how big your base of innings is, but if you’ve logged a decent number of innings, I think you can safely deploy Gibson or Snell. Snell has a better shot at getting the strikeouts you need, but Gibson is probably safer from a ratio perspective.

      @Roger Anderson: Thanks! Gibson, but I don’t trust any of them….

      • Roger Anderson says:

    Grey, I’m in H2H playoffs… and things are looking scary with my pitching. I’ve got Alex Wood ($2.5 SON start @WSH), McCullers ($4.5 @LAA), not to mention Darvish and Lester (gulp). Do I start Wood and McCullers?

    In their place I’d probably start Boyd ($6.9 vs. CWS) and Morton ($6.3 vs. HOU)… what say you, an ardent Wood sceptic?

    Keep up the good work Grey! 12 team, H2H, 6X6 keeper…In playoffs, trying to win division. Several pitchers on DL and I might have to drop Price. Which SP would you rather have next year…Price or Archer?

        @Grey: yeah. We are football AF! Am I doing that right?

            Maybe it’s AP, Associated Press?

              @Grey: I think that’s right. I always get those two mixed up. do you think AP writers say they are AP AF?

            @Grey: HAHAH! I think the proper verbiage is that we’re throwing shade at football

                @Grey: That’s my whole issue. Shouldn’t “shading”be a good thing?

                ME: Hey, it’s so sunny out, I wish I had some shade so I wasn’t so hot.

                BENEVOLENT STRANGER: Oh, here’s my umbrella, I’ll throw you some shade!
