Charlie Morton aka Ground Chuck was playing “Hamburger Patty Cake” with the Mariners yesterday — 7 IP, 0 ER, 3 hits, 0 walks, 8 Ks, ERA at 0.72, WHIP at 0.88.  Ground Chuck said, “I’m A-1, try to ketchup.”  Then he took a long pull off his Jamaican meat patty, and continued to speak in food allusions, “I’m topped by Monterey Jack, you’re whack.” Ground Chuck cracked his knuckles, “I make you so gay, you try to find Ground Chuck on Grindr.”   Then, after a pause, “Gay, as in happy, but no judgments.”  Finally, concluding, “If the Babe had a kid named Chris, then Ruth’s Chris still ain’t got shizz on Morton’s.”  Charlie Morton sounds a bit cocky there, but he has every reason to be.  In the preseason, I said, “A pitcher that goes through life as an also-ran to turn it around in his 30’s is rare.  One other guy comes to mind, his name rhymes with Bitch Chill.  Anyhoo, I’m buying into Morton’s transformation.  How about a late-in-career transformation we call The Caitlyn Jenner?  No?  Okay.”  And that’s me quoting me!  One thing I did not understand at all was why there were so many skeptics on Morton this preseason.  It was as if they ignored all of his previous season, and did not watch him in the playoffs.  Ground Chuck is Salisbury Steak’ing his claim as a top five starter.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Ken Giles – Could be headed to the DL due to a back injury.  He said he hurt it while, “Carrying around this monkey Hinch put on my back for having a bad five-game stretch in the playoffs last year!  I mean, can a man get a clean slate at some point?  So I messed up seven months ago, we still won the World Series!”

Evan Gattis – 1-for-4, 1 RBI, hitting .217.  ‘Member when CBS ranked him in the top 20 in the preseason?  They were spot on, if “Walking Into A Triple Play” is a category in your league.

Josh Reddick – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .250.  I’ll be honest with you (after ten years of lies), I kinda thought what Reddick is doing is what Marwin would be doing.  There’s still obviously time for Marwin to turn things around, but woof.

Max Kepler – Paul Molitor said, “Kepler is going to be okay.”  He was talking about his knee or Molitor is the world’s worst fortune teller.

Tommy Pham – He said his right groin is not an issue.  His left groin, however, needs to eat.

Jedd Gyorko – 2-for-2, 1 run, hitting .625 (in like 3 games).  He’ll be in this afternoon’s Buy, but here’s a high energy JEDD! for you.

Luke Weaver – 4 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.22.  What a Cleveland stream, Weaver.

Javier Baez – 2-for-5, 2 runs as he was moved up to the two hole.  But what about poor, little Ben Zobrist?!

Jason Heyward – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .226.  Has anyone ever really delved into what a disappointment Heyward became?  He’s like Andruw Jones, but, instead of having nine incredible seasons, Heyward had one.  By the way, to write this blurb, I went back and looked at Andruw Jones’ career.  Doode’s a Hall of Famer if he played in the 80’s.  He had some insane years.

Jon Lester – 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.10, WHIP at 1.33.  His WHIP is around where it is when he has one of his garbage seasons, but his ERA is where it is when he’s on point, so, therefore, ergo, vis-à-vis, be careful.

Alex Cobb – 3 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 15.43.  “Wonder Twins activate…in the form of a COBBBBBBB!”  Their special powers ask, “Um, Alex Cobb or a half-eaten cob of corn?”  “Wonder Twins activate…in the form of a half-eaten cob of corn, of course!  No one wants Alex Cobb.”

Manny Machado – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 4 RBIs and his 4th and 5th homer.  Machado heard everyone talking about Dixon Machado and said, “Nuh-uh, put your Dixon this Machado!”

Chris Davis – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .145.  This may or may not be the case anymore, but in a past life when Chris Davis was the slugging Chris Davis, he would usually follow a home run day with four or five more of them.

Jeimer Candelario – 4-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .284.  “Hello, this is Penelope Cruz and it’s 3 AM and I’m borracho and I want to sleep with you.”  That Jeimer batty call is still better!

Leonys Martin – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 4 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .295.  Apparently, dropping Leonys after the first week of the season was me being reactionary.  This is Grey and I approve this message, now, excuse me, so I can slam my head into a wall a’la The Situation.

Hunter Pence – Out with a thumb injury.  In related news, he wasn’t out with an injury up until this point, even though this is the first you’ve thought about him.

Brandon Belt – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  No foolsies, he could have 17 homers by May 1st, and he would still end the year with 17 homers.  Like clockwork, a clock that counts to 17, and nothing more or less.

Ketel Marte – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer, hitting .237.  He’s in this afternoon’s Buy column, but don’t feel beholden to wait for that.  Just beholden Marte!

Chris Owings – Will go under concussion protocol after Owings was Pwned by Pollock’s knee in a collision.

Freddie Freeman – 2-for-3, 1 run, 1 RBI, hitting .306.  This was me today.  *looking at waivers for Freeman replacements, sees Lucas Duda, sobs uncontrollably, sees Freeman back in lineup, briefly composes self, sniffles*  I’d like a mochachino with coconut milk.  PLEASE!

Preston Tucker – 2-for-4, 5 RBIs, hitting .288.  Acuna who?!

Kurt Suzuki – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .317.  I can’t help feeling like Stan Gable licking a pie tin every time I see Tyler Flowers in my DL slot and Suzuki hitting.

Matt Wisler – 7 IP, 1 ER, 2 baserunners, 8 Ks in a spot start.  This was a matchup of Matt Wisler and Matt Harvey.  One you wanted after seeing him in spring training and one you should’ve been Wisler about it.  For what it’s worth, the Stream-o-Nator liked this Wisler start, though that was partially about how poorly it expected Harvey to do.

Matt Harvey – 6 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 6.00.  Fritz Peterson had more success after sleeping with one of his teammates’ wives, and he asked for permission.  After the game, Callaway said he wouldn’t commit to Harvey in another start.  When Harvey was asked if he’d be fine with a move to a bullpen, he said, “I am a starting pitcher.  I have always been a starting pitcher.”  That’s funny, because Harvey isn’t even convincing as a starting pitcher in a game of charades.

Todd Frazier – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer.  I noticed the other day our Buy/Sell Tool was saying Frazier is big-time Sell, but, really, who’s buying him?

Rhys Hoskins – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer, hitting .327.  He has Rhysen.

Odubel Herrera – 2-for-4, 1 run, 2 RBIs, hitting .333.  ODB is hot like Mariah.

Jake Arrieta – 7 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 2 BBs, 10 Ks, ERA at 2.04.  In previous years, this would’ve been Arrieta’s one no-hitter of the season.  Grey “Subtle Dig” Albright — It’s the Sub D!

Jameson Taillon – 1 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA up to 2.86.  The Regression Fairies will chat you up about Scandal, they will help you pull off your Lady Gaga look and they will destroy your ratios.

Shohei Ohtani – 0-for-4 as he DH’d.  This comes after he had an abbreviated last start due to a blister.  Is swinging a bat really good for a blister?  Cause I’m gonna say negatory, Ghost Rider, but The Sciosciapath must have a different playbook.  That playbook’s title is, “Baseball for Dummies.”

Andrew Benintendi – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer.  Oh my goodness gracious, I am standing here besides myself like Fisher Stevens playing a stereotype in Short Circuit!  Would ya believe Benintendi actually joined the home run party?

Mookie Betts –  2-for-5, 2 runs and his 6th homer.  Geez, only one home run?  Were all Betts off?

Eduardo Rodriguez – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners (3 BBs), 5 Ks, ERA at 3.45.  Better than I expected, but I still don’t trust him, and, let’s be honest, yesterday wasn’t that great either.

Aaron Sanchez – 6 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.86.  This was a tough matchup in the Bronx.  Though, I don’t really love Sanchez as it is.  Though, Part II:  Another One Of Thoughs, there’s matchups where I’d use him.

CC Sabathia – 4 1/3 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 2.70, as he was activated from the DL.  Kevin from ESPN’s Get Him In Your Lineup Department said, “Don’t CC me on a reply all, for the love of all that is holy.”

Aaron Judge – 1-for-3 and his 5th homer, hitting .339.  Someone with some money needs put together a Home Run Derby this weekend and invite Judge.

Giancarlo Stanton – 1-for-3 as he was knocked down all the way to the cleanup spot.  Wow, Boone, really putting your foot down, out on that limb.  (Pun?  I think so!)

Lewis Brinson – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 1st and 2nd homer.  He’s trying to suck us all back in and…It worked for me.  Goodbye, Tyler O’Neill, hello, Lewis Brinson!  I picked him as the 2nd home run sailed over the center field wall.

Chase Anderson – 5 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunnes, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.25.  Sadly, he looks a lot more like the streamer, 4.20 ERA, 7+ K/9 pitcher he was two years than the 8.5 K/9, 2.74 ERA guy from last year.

Orlando Arcia – 1-for-5 and his 2nd homer, hitting .203.  Orlando hit it off Miami’s Junichi Tazahassee.  Orange you glad I didn’t say Bradenton Ziegler?

Lorenzo Cain – 3-for-4, 4 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .303.  Cain…Sugar!  Got so many runs, call him, ‘You need to hit the John McCain.’  Moving around the diamond like an Israeli importer/exporter using a Cain.  Sorry, I just went all Pusha T on this.

Ryan Braun – 1-for-1, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer, a pinch-hit shot, hitting .214.  Thankfully, it was a short schedule day, so he was in my lineup after he didn’t start the game, due to a sore calf.  Freeman was hit by a 95 MPH fastball on the same wrist that he fractured last year, and he played the next day.  It’s laughable that Braun seems like the kind of douchebag to wear gym clothing that would read, “No Excuses.”  Braun is one big sorry excuse.  I hate him so much; I’m going to use my Famous Jewish Sports Legends Leaflet as kindling.  Manure meet Menorah!

    Excellent stuff Grey,

    As a reasonably new baseball fan, I don’t quite understand what Gattis did yesterday. It was a lack of professionalism right ? not knowing how many outs there were ? That the kind of thing you pick up a fine/benching for?

    Good News : My roto team started 6 players yesterday on a short day. Hit 6 HR (Machado,
    Brinson, Hoskins, Benintendi). Wow !!
    Bad News : That same roto team has hit 21 HR’s so far this year.

    Keep up the good work,

    Another Dan

      @Another Dan:
      He just wasn’t paying attention, it happens sometimes even though they are professionals. You’re more likely to see it happen to an infielder or outfielder, going so far as to toss the ball into the stands to a fan though there are only 2 outs. He may get benched but it is not an official offense by league or team standards generally. It’s more likely nothing will happen to him other than dealing with the haunting embarrassment of causing a triple play against his team, even then, they still won.

    • JakeTPE says:
      (link)

      @Another Dan: I was at a game three years ago at Fenway and Rusney Castillo caught a fly ball and threw it into the stands. Problem was, there were only two outs. D’oh! Red Sox still won but Rusney seems like he’s been stuck in Pawtucket ever since then.

    Andruw was my hero. Still wear #25 whenever I do the sportsballs. Such a stud.

    Anywho…thoughts on Sano vs Villanueva going forward?

    Sano is murdering me in Ks and OBP. Villanueva won’t sustain his pace but will Sano stop missing everything?

    • curiousgeorgespringer says:
      (link)

      @john: The Twins have only played 13 games and Sano has 4 homers. They were off for like a week due to snow, then faced Kluber and Carrasco (and he homered in the Carrasco game). Relax.

      • john says:
        (link)

        @curiousgeorgespringer: OH I’M RELAXED! … but really, I only mention after looking at his Ks (negative stat in my league) and OBP yesterday with all the buzz about Villanueva.

        …maybe the 108 yr old Andruw will still make the HoF for his glove. He glided to the ball and made it look almost effortless. One of the best ever, imho.

    I am in a 12 team 5(obp)x5 redraft. Guy in league really wants Acuna. I was thinking of offering him M Cabrera, Acuna and Ohtani (batter) for Hoskins. Am I giving up to much? Cabrera is a on my bench 1/2 the time and Ohtani obviously only plays half the games.

      @Dave Funnell: If you had guys ranked highly going into the year, dont let a few weeks of games in crazy weather completely change your evaluations. Twins have played less games than most with more than a full series being rained/snowed/apocalypsed away.
      Buxton on DL with migraines. If they can manage them, he should be fine.

    b. Would you add Peacock in a 5X5 RCL?

    I have the following SP

    JV, McCullers and Lucchesi

    At the RP – Strickland, Steckenrider, Norris, Jansen, Chad Green, Bradley and Barnes

    On my bench I have Duvall who could be turning it around but is so bad.

    1. Would you drop any of the RPs for Peacock?

    2. Would you drop Duvall for Peacock?

    My OF is Brinson (just added), Harper, Hicks, Inciarte, Leonys and at the U Fowler.

    c. Red Sox 14-2 start, best in franchise history!! BoSox fans must be livin’ large!

    I like them all but I need to drop one of the following: Zimmer, Choo, Teoscar, Villanueva, Gurriel, Zimmer, Ian Happ, or Kepler.

    • DonSlaughtOnslaught says:
      (link)

      @Schmohawks Bob: that is really hard to answer without context, but you listed Zimmer twice and he has been bad, so maybe that is a clue to yourself.

      I have dropped Happ and Zimmer in two seperate 12 team leagues; replacement level for hitters is really high these days to hang on to a marginal guy who is struggling.

      • Schmohawks Bob says:
        (link)

        @DonSlaughtOnslaught: @DonSlaughtOnslaught: The context is a 12 team league where I grabbed Teoscar but now I need to let someone go in order to use that spot to stream starting pitchers. The guys named form the lower ranked OF’s and the bench. Obviously a mistake to name Zimmer twice.

        • DonSlaughtOnslaught says:
          (link)

          @Schmohawks Bob: yeah the Zimmer part was mostly a joke, but those guys are all probably in the same blob. Some more floor (Choo), some more upside (Happ, Zimmer) but plenty of warts everywhere. I just can’t see cutting one of them being a huge regret, but you never know.

      @Gus Pike:

      My current OF is:
      Stanton
      Haniger
      Puig
      Rosario
      Michael Taylor
      Pirela

      Any worth chopping and for which of the two available guys?

    Harveys post game was embarasing. Yeah, enjoy being a starting pitcher in AAA.

    Im a little more optimistic about E-Rod than you but i get why you have cold feet. His command was ok last night. He was working the outer half well vs the righties and nasty change to lefties. The ball Krispie homered on was easy 3 inches outside. The ump was giving him basicly every call off the outside corner and he still somehow managed to walk andrelton simmons 3 times putting a man on ahead of ohtani each time. But he made ohtani look reallllly bad every at bat like ohtani had zero shot vs him. By the way, did you ever notice how ohtani never has hat hair? Anyway, thats a tough lineup to navigate through on the road and if i were you id put on a thicker pair of socks!

    • lyricist says:
      (link)

      @Willy Mo: Goes to show how different people can view an umpire. I say the substitute home plate ump was screwing EdRod on the low inside corner (to RH) and he should have had two or three more Ks. For those of you that didn’t see it, the original home plate umpire had to leave the game after taking a Mike Trout foul ball off the bicep. After a ten minute delay where Ed Rod was asked to keep warm, HP ump #2 had him throw a few while he was behind the dish so he could properly position himself. According to the Angels announcers, the home plate ump for the night generally watches video on the SPs to get a gauge of what they do and how they will interpret what is a strike.

      I say confidence inspiring showing for Ed Rod. They’re not the worlds easiest line-up. Price was successful against them a few days earlier… that doesn’t hurt the game plan.

      Speaking of Andrelton…. that was one hell of a double play he made. It’s funny how the skilled don’t have to be so animated in what we assume is a good play.

      • Willy Mo says:
        (link)

        @lyricist: insane dp!

        Yeah e rod wasnt getting the inside corner you’re right. UMP must have been set up with a bad angle behind the plate. Obviously you hate to see 3 walks to Simmons but he recovered every time with a k or weak contact to ohtani. Was crazy how many change ups he threw ohtani in a row and ohtani couldnt recognize or adjust at all. Made him look real bad.

    #1: Please tell me your higher on Giles then most people. I haven’t written him off yet and we shouldn’t right? By season’s end he could finish as a top 10 closer , am I way off by saying that..
    #2 Giles and Tim Anderson for Kimbrel and minter.. He has Owings shortstop, and his best options to pick up are prob peraza, arcia. Should I push for this trade I own Giles Anderson?
    In addition to my 2nd question just want to say I have no room for anderson, I have Myers, Mazara, teoscer, and villanueva to put in the utility, and seager at shortsop..i don’t need steals but not to say Anderson could be a great bench bat in this rottiseri season long points league../ auction keeper.

        @b the esq.: Houston’s staff just said the other day that Giles hasn’t been available the past few games. Back stiffness. Honestly it’s prolly the weather.. anyways so that sounds a lot like the reason and only reason devinski stole those saves from him.. so why are we so low on giles..

        @Jubaka: @b the esq.: it’s a rotisserie season long points league so I don’t care how he does now, it all about how they finish.. while Giles sits i only losing saves.. Really I think saves are the least thing to worry about. I think I can win this even if I was dead last in saves.. go sagnof and worst comes to worst if your last place in saves if.. then whatever kind of right? There 12 categories 6 pitching 6 hitting..

    Good article as always, Grey! Ironic that before I read it, I was contemplating adding Gyorko, then read that you said he’d be in your Buy write up later on. I added him immediately! According to Rotoworld, Gyorko was the 2nd best player on the Cardinals last year. Plus, he’d been a top prospect a few seasons ago. I think if he stays healthy and gets regular playing time, he’ll produce. The Cards are a good team and he’s surrounded by other good hitters, so I’m hopeful for good things to come.

    So I have 12 pickups left in my 12 team pts league (1pt for 1B, 2pts for 2B, 3pts for 3B, 4pts for HR, 1pt for R, 1pt for RBI, 1pt for BB, 1pt for SB) (15pts for W, 7pts for S, 1pt for SO) – so no negative pts. My lineup

    C: W Castillo
    1B: C Santana
    2B: DJ lemahieu
    3B: J Gallo
    SS: C Correa
    OF: Y Puig
    OF: G Stanton

    B: M Estrada

    so Zunino comes of the DL soon – who do I drop? or do I drop him and keep Castillo? is P Tucker for real? he is on waivers – do I drop puig? Or do I drop one of my pitchers? my OF has not done me any favors. have too many U/1B but bell is hitting the ball well and carpenter has multiple positions elegibility. And I only have 12 pickups left for the season

    • Terrence Mann says:

      @Blake: I’d hold. Puig will come around. You pick up Tucker, you’re just creating another headache when Acuna gets called up. Your pitching depth is paper thin. If you only have 12 moves left you may need them later, likely for pitching.

      @hitman004: I’d say Norris fo sho.. but its a good question I’d like to know the answer too. As a Giles owner I think he will get almost all the saves this year once takes the job back , and well long as he not at risk of injury I guess too. Giles has this back pain i guess, and thats why he wasnt available for 2 of the last save chances.. there is word the coaches are shaky on there faith in him but I don’t really think if Giles pitches as well as last year they would take him out of the closer role.. While devinski could be houstens Andrew miller..

    Bregman, E. Rosario, C. Taylor (if he’d part with him), or Votto. My instincts say to package Grandal w/ someone like Travis Shaw and/or C. Anderson and try to pry Votto loose, which probably won’t work. As a back-up plan, Bregman would be a good get, right? What about Rosario or Taylor?

    8 team 5×5 standard roto:

    Give: Altuve, Gallo, Junis, Shane Greene
    Get: Trout, Kinsler

    Not sure if the Trout owner would even consider it. His only source of SVs at the moment is Middleton. He could keep Altuve thru 2019 – this is his last year to roster Trout. Same for me, I could keep Trout thru 2019, but I’m losing Altuve after this year. My only issue is that I would have to roll with Duda as my primary 1b moving forward, but I think he has a shot at 30 dongs if he plays every day.

    My other option would be to include Osuna in a package and go SAGNOF the rest of the year, but that’s a little harder to do in this format, with half the closers to choose from.

    Someone offered me Kluber for Jose Ramirez straight up (5×5, OBP and QS). Unfortunately I need both starting pitching and HRs. Leaning towards keeping Jose but want your thoughts.

        @Grey: The total opposite. Which makes it even funnier. My dad figured it out a decade or so ago while I was still in HS, but my mom still doesn’t understand why my friends text/remember their anniversary every year. And we don’t have the heart to explain it. Its cause they are so damn special!!

          Haha… I’m having a hard time getting into this album… What song am I listening for?

        • knucks says:
          (link)

          @knucks: Its cool. Its a tough first listen. MF DOOM produced half of it, I’ve learned he is not for everyone. Usually half of the people I have been rec’in this album to are turned off immediately. Then a few days later, another half or so are textin’ like, aight dood, I’m with you on this one.

          So maybe give it another chance or three in the background of your day today if you have time and if not, be done with it haha

          Its not super catchy and hooky at all. But I love the beats and lyrics. The end of Again and Again is cool. Get Away is prob the catchiest track of the album, but its really not all that catchy haha

          What are your thoughts about Blood Orange? You hear of this guy already?

          https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/22052-blood-orange-freetown-sound/

          Someone just turned me onto this one a few weeks ago. More R&B than the other stuff I usually bring up. You mentioned the Hamilton Soundtrack that last pod and sometimes this album reminds me of some of those songs. So thought I’d throw it out at you.

          • Grey

              @Grey: Good stuff, I think you’ll prob dig this album then. That’s all I got for now. Really looking forward to the Buy this afternoon. I feel like this is that sweet spot of the season to really nail down those season long type of guys that I might hang on to longer than most of my adds during the season.

    What are your thoughts on Chris Taylor so far? I feel like his counting stats are looking nice, but that 4% walk rate combined with the 27% K-rate is a recipe for future disaster.

    You asked me to come back if my Roark for Merrifield offer got declined, and while it hasn’t gotten declined yet, I also don’t know when a response is coming so here I am anyway! If I can’t get Roark for Merrifield, should I offer Roark for any of these guys: Kinsler, LeMahieu, C.Taylor, Cesar H? (you can pick more than one) My other option would be to use my last add of the week to swap poor little Ben Zobrist for some Ketel 1 Marte or Gyorko.

    I only have one add left this week. Who is my add and who do I drop to make it happen? I can add (and thanks!):
    A) A blah 2B like Villar, Peraza, or Flaherty to replace Zobrist
    B) Teoscar
    C) Tim Anderson for steals (despite being meh overall)
    D) Velazquez

    Are you noticing it’s getting harder and harder to win/compete in Ks? Seems like every team in the league has at or above a k/9 (most have above).

    It almost seems like you need a ratios/Ks middle reliever to compete there. Have you thought about this and do you carry a MR or two on most of your teams?

    OK, looking for some validation here but I traded Morton at the beginning of the season.

    I gave up Morton, Neris, ODB, and Abreu to get Zunino, Cody Allen, and J.D. (2 catcher league)

    I love (Just) Dong so I’m not upset about it, and even though I believed in Morton I expected him to be one of my lower end guys.

    Here’s my team for reference. Also wondering what you’d be willing to give up to get Benny Biceps . Really thinking I should unload Pham while his stock is relatively high.

    Also could use and upgrade at 2B – any opinions on who to target?

    C- Hedges
    C- Chirinos
    1B- Freeman
    1B- Gallo

    Great site, just found you

    10 team daily league with free agent add fees
    1 catcher slot
    I have Realmuto, want to pick up Ianetta or Cervelli for when he doesn’t play, think Ianetta is the marginally better player but Cervelli might be the better choice because he plays on Sunday and doesn’t catch Kuhl so his schedule is more predictable, what do you think?

    Also have Matz and Happ, thinking about LUcchesi , Ross and Roark, how would you rate all 5

    thank you

    “I went back and looked at Andruw Jones’ career. Doode’s a Hall of Famer if he played in the 80’s. He had some insane years”

    Interesting story, I met Andrew one night outside of a club in Buckhead. I stumble out of the club for a cigarette and see a silver Ferrari pull up to the curb. I lean down to get a look at the driver and luckily there wasn’t any tint. It was a guy that looked like Andrew Jones so I motioned for him to roll his window down and he did, surprisingly. I told him that I was a big fan and that it was nice to meet him. He gave me a nice smile, thanked me and said “nice to meet you too”….but I had just seen the Braves lose to the Yankees in world series game 1 (in the club) and wondered why he wasn’t getting some sleep. Well my question was answered in about two seconds as two beautiful blonde girls came out of the club and stacked themselves in the passenger seat of his not very roomy car. He’s a hall of famer alright. He belongs in Cooperstown.

    Need to drop a guy.

    I have Yuli Gurriel, Michael Taylor and Jose Peraza as options to cut.

    Other guys my team has at those positions are:
    2B/SS/MI Rizzo, Trea Turner, Tim Anderson
    1B/3B/CI/Util Arenado, Sano, Goldschmidt, Chapman
    OF Stanton, Haniger, Puig, Rosario, Leonys Martin

    Leaning towards dropping Peraza (I’m getting lots of steals from Turner and Anderson) but I’m not sure Gurriel gets a lot of playing time on my squad….

    Thoughts?

    What should I do with Wacha? I’ve got him in a 12 team standard roto and a 14 team h2h categories league. Here’s who’s on the wires in each:

    12 team standard roto: JA Happ, Bettis, Trevor Williams, Ryu, Skaggs, Reynaldo (Lourdes Gurriel also there but that would leave me w/4 SP’s that includes Jack Flaherty)

    Is Jordan Zimmerman set for a big regression right now? His ERA is 7.71, but his LOB% is 55%, his BABIP is .396, his K rate is up, and his HR/FB seems stable. Fangraphs is also tracking a slider now, it appears? SIERA sitting aroudn 3.60. Am I crazy? Tell me I’m crazy (don’t tho!)!

I drive it to my big fake season seats at Citi Field … anyway, when you put me down in like 2 months, after JZ has a higher ERA than it is now, just do it gently.

    Roto 5×5 with OBP

    I have a surplus of bench hitters and no closers with Schwarber, Braun, Puig, Sano, Gallo being trade chips.

    Another team has no bench hitters and attractive, seemingly surplus pitchers such as Pivetta, Manaea, Clevinger, A. Reed, Devenski, N. Jones.

    What are some fair trade offers given that criteria?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Grey

      Sano for Pivetta and Clevinger (or and Devenski or Jones)

    Thoughts on the following…

    My Goldschmidt
    for
    Turner & Kluber

    I have Bellinger to replace, and my SP’s are Syndergaard, Corbin, Morton, Weaver, Clevinger, Ohtani, Castillo . . . so far so good

    Tough one, any input?

    Saw your love for Gyorko, but don’t really have many places to add him. Two leagues I can drop either:

    Roster questions.
    1. Drop 1 pitcher (Pivetta; Lucchesi).

    2. Drop 1 2B. Merrifield or Taylor. Each also can support OF (see Question 3).

    3. Drop 1 (or 2 OF) when Deshields comes off DL. Currently OF = Mancini; Rosario; and Cain.

  133. Stickball Al says:

    Best guess on Nick Senzel coming up to the majors. Are the Reds so bad and stupid they leave him down there till June ? Or does a manager change get some of the young-uns up to the Bigs to make him look good and start the re-build this year. Or is the ghost of Marge punishing all of Cincinnati this year ? I have questions ? Does anyone have answers ? Is Marge dead ? No one knows Pisccotti doesn’t care so your my last chance.

    Should I drop fields for Alvarado or drop Pomeranz.
    If yes then should I drop lol for Stratton, Cahill, gray, Jarlin, gsellmen. If this just looks so lame as a bench pitcher then maybe throw a prospects name out there that hasn’t been called up yet, but might be soon.
    Honeywell,or something..
