“Hello, I’m here to visit The Sciosciapath.”  “We need to see your ID, and, if you’re carrying any sharp items, you have to leave them here.”  I empty my pockets and show the guard my ID.  The Mental Institution of Major League Managers is a relic from the 50’s, a product of discarded patients suffering moral treatment.  There’s Ron Washington chewing on a piece of chalk.  At least, I think it’s chalk.  Over there, Terry Collins is pretending a yo-yo is his arm.  Finally, I see The Sciosciapath, bifocals low on the bridge of his nose, carrying a clipboard.  He is a patient, but thinks he’s the megalomaniacal head physician.  He muahaha’s as he sees me, and screams at a discarded piece of meatloaf, “I told you to run, Darin Erstad!”  Any hoo!  C.J. Cron has finally emerged from the shadow of failed psychiatry in Anaheim and is putting up a season we thought always possible.  This is so unsurprising.  He was obviously a 27-homer hitter for the last few years as The Sciosciapath played everyone else.  If Cron is available in your league, grab him and stop screaming at your meatloaf.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

James McCann – He’s hitting over .300 in the last week with two homers.  That’s a whole lot better than what’s usually up, McCann.

Ryon Healy – As I think I said earlier this week, Healy’s similar to Mitch Haniger with less average and speed.  And that’s me paraphrasing me!

Matt Adams – Have you seen this guy lately?  He looks like he divorced his wife, lost 75 pounds and started dating 20-year-olds.  Yo, Matt, I appreciate you feel like a huge burden has been lifted, but I’m not sure you should quit your job to start a podcast about tattoos.

Jesus Aguilar – His name is so close to the Latino porn star, Hayzeus Igooyoulater.

Jose Peraza – Yo, y’all wanna hurt me by not picking up Jose Peraza?  Why you wanna do that?  You hate handsome?  You hate the mustachioed?  You an anti-mustachite?  It’s time you embraced me.  Metaphorically!  Get off me!

Daniel Robertson – For a lot of these guys, I feel like nothing more needs to be said then pick them up.  I mean, if you don’t know Peraza or Matt Adams by now, you’re never gonna know them (is that a late-era Chicago song?).  Robertson, honestly, I don’t know that well myself, so let’s educate ourselves!  He walks a lot, like more than a senior in the mall at 8 AM.  His OBP is sexy AF.  Plate discipline isn’t usually something that just disappears either.  Unfortch, he has next to no speed, and his power is likely limited.  Think 18-ish homers on high side.  There’s some talk of him being a messenger of the Launch Angle Revolutionaries.  Remains to be seen, methinks.  17/4/.280 seems doable, which gets you excited depending on the league, I suppose.

Howie Kendrick – I went to look up How Ya Like Me lyrics for Howie and I caught a pic of Kool Moe Dee from back in the day, and he should literally dress exactly the same every day of his life.  Those sunglasses will never stop.

Enrique Hernandez – Never know whether to call him Enrique or Kiké.  Why can’t he just change that shizz to Enkiké?  Any hoo!  With Seager out for the season, playing time in the Dodgers’ lineup opened up.  With all the Dodgers injuries, they should call their lineup a “lie down.”

Alen Hanson – Mostly just a SAGNOF call, and Hitter-Tron only likes him if his name is Alen Wrench, and has his grips on his lugnuts.

Eduardo Escobar – I’m starting to get the feeling no one wants to pick up Twins hitters.  Joe Meh-er and Miguel Say-No are the new blech, but some Twins are all right.  Stop hatin’, haters.

Jung-ho Kang – Not sure why the Pirates are even thinking about playing Kang.  Though, could say same for Sean-Rod…or Frazier…It’s almost like they don’t know they have a minor league team.  Austin Meadows can’t get no love?

Willy Adames – Whether Adames is a Cylon or human is irrelevant, it’s whether or not he’ll be called up.  I see people adding Vlad the Mini Impaler, but in redrafts, Adames has a better shot of seeing playing time.

Leonys Martin – I gave you a Leonys Martin fantasy a few days ago, and his ownership needle has been in neutral.  You anti-mustachite!

Jorge Soler – He’s the model BSOHL’er, but is that Best Shape of His Life or Best Schmotato of Hot Lately?

Franchy Cordero – If you Google “Franch Military Victories,” Google suggests, “Did you mean The Franchy Cordero Revolution?”  And, ya know what, you did.  Google knows me better than I know myself!  And Facebook.

Mark Canha – Not really buying Canha as a breakout, but has schmotato’ed for a few now.  If you schmotato long enough, it does eventually turn into a star mitzvah.  It’s a shituation worth cyclops’ing.  By the way, we gained a new reader today that somehow made it to this blurb and was like, “What in the holy eff is this guy talking about?”

Joc Pederson – This Choose Your Own Adventure points back to Enkiké and how Joc is know scratching that ‘lie down’ itch.

Cam Bedrosian – I could’ve also listed Justin Anderson or Blake Parker, and, what do you know, I just did!

Darren O’Day – More like O’SAGNOF!  AMIRIGHT?!

Nick Kingham – I already gave you a Nick Kingham fantasy.  It was written while being a helicopter parent for my dog.

Alex Reyes – We’re about a week or two away from me making Alex Reyes the lede of a Buy, so, depending on how competitive your league is, you might want to grab him now.

Jason Hammel – This is a Stream-o-Nator call like the call it makes to 23 and Me to ask, “How can I have no family?”  Yo, SON, is depressing.

Jake Junis – I actually have owned Junis for the last month in one league, however, this is a Stream-o-Nator call too.  Like the call it made to a refrigerator to see if it was his father.

SELL

Didi Gregorius – It almost seems like I dislike the Yankees.  Weird since I grew up a Yankees fan.  That, of course, has been bastardized due to fantasy.  I love Severino and Giancarlo, so I don’t hate the Yankees.  Our Buy/Sell Tool is screaming at the top of its lungs to SELL!!! Didi, and I agree.  Naturally — or natch, if you’re in a hurry — I’m not selling Gregorius at his preseason price.  He’s an easy top 50 bat now.  Our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer might even be selling him short like Jose Altuve standing in a Macy’s window.  I wouldn’t sell Didi for a Vaping for Dummies book with its 1st chapter, “You can smoke and get cancer, or vape and have people wish you got cancer,” but I would explore options.

STL fans gotta love this one. heyward (who hasn’t hit well since the day he left STL) only has a job at ALL from fielding and apparently he gives good speeches (according to CUBS players and a whole host of articles about the playoffs the year they won it), wanted to look so damn slick sliding for a ball that should’ve out the 3rd out he literally just slid UNDER the ball, scoring a guy. had he not slid the ball would’ve hit him right in his chest. but man imagine how cool that would’ve looked with that sweet slide right.

My waiver for Gallo is now between Pivetta and Castillo, and leaning Pivetta since Castillo has the “pedigree”, but I’m torn. I don’t think anyone will be picking Pivetta up anyway, so I think I’m good to get him back for his start against SF

@And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers!: 10 teamer but some of the owners don’t have the most patience with certain players. We also count Ks against batters, so in this case, the owner felt Gallo was hurting BA, and Ks a lot more than helping the other categories. Not gonna question another owner’s strategy if it’ll benefit my team.

@William Hung: the question being just what the guy thought he was getting when he drafted him. he’s doing EXACTLY what was expected, and probably a little bit ahead of the HR pace too, WITH more BB’s than expected. if it’s a 10 teamer with no CI/MI and only 3 OF pretty much anybody can be dropped if cold, or at least believed that somebody would

the MIL manager is AGAIN benching villar for MF’ing sogard (who’s hitting 105 with no power, even bad for him). so either villar
1. has literally the worst defense in the league
2. is injured and they are hiding it
3. MIL’s manager is stupider than ARI’s GM, SEA’s GM, NYM’s medical staff, maddon, sociapath and any other idiot making baseball decisions.

2. nah, we’ll push him through it anyway
3. DL i guess, right? since it is his THROWING ELBOW

and this still took what, almost a week to figure those 3 steps above? so they still WANTED to play a guy with a hyperextended elbow in his THROWING ELBOW! seriously it’s gotten to the point where an average 13 year old on web MD is a better doctor than them.

Happy Sunday, Grey,
12 team weekly roto, redraft. With Ray on the DL and taking up one of my 4 reserve spots I need to stream 2 SP’s this week as Gibson and Mengden have bad matchups. One weird cat is net wins along with wins, no whip. My choices are:
M. Minor H vs 9.6 vs. Det. and Fiers -8.
D. German H vs Oak and Triggs.
I. Nova @CWS and Giolito -6.5
N. Kingman H vs SF and Suarez -4.4
C. Smith H 9.7 vs Folty 5.8.
It would be nice to be able to hold a guy but… my choices are Minor and German, do you agree?

2. I have Margot who is killing me, I was hoping for a 20-20. M. Smith, L. Martin are available. Looking for SB’s and Martin is only 1 for 4 on the year. Seems like Smith is my guy. Agree?

for some weird reason casilla has no holds. dull got an 8th inning (a kimbrel as well) yesterday. but casilla is actually the best RP on OAK all year (well 2nd best behind the mastermind of the putting challenge, with a 2.09 FIP). in AL only, 10 teamer with holds and saves sold separately i have kelvin (best season ever thusly, shame his team is shit or he’d honestly be a top 3 closer or so right now), brach (lost job big time, not even leverage innings anymore, pitched 2 innings while losing in the 6th yesterday), j.anderson (first mis step today), nicasio.

lose brach for maybe j.anderson for any of: casilla, leclerc (best FIP on team RP, moving up in hierarchy slowly, today didn’t help), diekman, roe (awful pitching, but holds), venters (MIGHT eventually move up a lot here), dull, duke, j.johnson, mccarthy or hill (gotta be moving up as nobody else on KC doing any bit well), olson (ERA luck near worst in league, FIP under 3), kelly (might have the 8th back again, way better FIP than i’d believe), givens

brach actually isn’t doing badly (3.49 FIP) so anderson might be the only drop here if brach gets his high leverage stuff back.

@Lucky Dog: I guess there’s an “e” in there, too. Teoscar? Still weird.

In a nice little development Teoscar is leading things off today for the Blue Jays. They already tried Gurriel in that spot, so they’re clearly looking for someone to claim that job. With Donaldson back and batting second, I sure wouldn’t mind Teo getting some more SBs and Runs.

@Grey: You were saying… Haha, Teo just jacked one 400 feet. Wait, that sounded wrong. Anyway I sure hope he sticks there.

Trade K Seager and A Wood for Rendon now he’s back? OBP league and Seager is really hurting that.

Good morning, Grey!

Since I’m still battling to fix my ratios I’m thinking of sitting Weaver today at home vs the Cubbies. SON likes him at $7.8, but facing that lineup that’s killed him recently (not to mention STL’s lack of offense so far), chances are I won’t regret sitting him, correct?

Thanks!

@Grey: Haha! You nogoodnick! Now it’ll be a perfect game for sure… Wait, or an implosion…. Now I’m more confused than ever. He’s at Petco for his next start. I think Luke and I will both feel better about that start. Damn… Did I just jinx him? This is hard.

PS: Would you rather have Nate Jones or Barraclough in RCL? Thanks again!

so I picked up Franchy last week for a bench spot. I have put him in my lineup only twice (based on SON and also my hitters have been hot). I have Cespedes, Krush, Mazara, Deshizz, Pham, Dickerson. He’s droppable among this bunch right? For now I need Deshizz for sagnof, also I am way behind on Runs. If I dropped him I would get another MR (NSVH league). What is more valuable to you? 3-4 games as a hitter inserted off the bench or a week of possible MR appearances for possible holds? I am not sure myself. I do know that I am way behind in S+H and also R.

I’m surprised at how much you like Mancini. Sure he had a 290 batting avg last year, but that was on the back of a BABIP north of 350. Currently he’s hitting around 265 with a 315 BABIP which seems about right for him. And it’s not like he’s got enough power where him hitting 270 is going the be that appealing. There’s like 50 players pacing 30+ homers, and half the league pacing 20 homers. Not that I expect you to reply to this but what am I missing? 270ish avg and 23ish homers and no steals. Mancini so freaking blah!

Have to DL Ryu so in a 5×5— need K’s and W in that order mostly… ERA is my least need.
What are your top two choices FROM: —-Junior Guerra – Caleb Smith- Sal Romano- Hellickson- Koch- Barraclough- Ty Blach- Freeland- V Velasquez

Final question. When Rendon returns, who loses playing time: Adams (my hunch); Zimmermann; Kendricks; Michael Taylor?

@Grey: @Norm Ginsberg: why would they bench Adams? He’s only got about a 1500 OPS over the last 2 weeks and is playing well in left field. He robbed a hr yesterday.

Rendon is back, and Adams is starting in left, batting 3rd. Today is also Adams 10th start in the outfield so he now has outfield eligibility too on ESPN.

Adams will play vs all righties.
