“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.

    h2h 12x keeper league: been offered Xander, L Castillo, & Mancini for my Nola, Senzel & Smoak. Only Castillo and Senzel are likely keepable next year. Who wins? If I swap out Ian Happ for Senzel, does it change your answer?

        Deep League: I need more pitching significantly……
        Who would you rather own in order and who has the most upside?
        Nick Kingham Alex Reyes Jack Flaherty Mike Soroka

        And would you drop any of these guys: Luis Castillo Jimmy Nelson Kyle Schwarber Steven Souza Jr.Scott Kingery Marcus Semien for anyone mentioned above?

        Thanks and have a good weekend,

    Grey! Prefer Carlos Santana, Cron or Pujols and in what order? Do your ranking still apply?

    What do I do with happ? Would you cut him inns 10 team league (5 OF and mi position). He is on my bench. My only reserve OF would be cargo and soler. I own semien at MI and also have Anderson on my bench. Happy isn’t playing. I was hoping he’d get sent down so I can NA him. Not sure why the cubs said they have no plans to do that. He is just rotting away in the bench. Thx

    Hey Grey! Any faith in Ozuna? Guys got a rock bottom walk rate he can’t shake… Killing me in my OBP H2H league. Looking to trade him, but for now, Soler would be an adequate schmotato?

      Ozuna’s a buy

      • Nico says:

    I need another SP, Luke Weaver, Wacha, Felix, Teheran, Skaggs,,, any body worth it? I’m already stashing Reyes.

    I’ll be cutting loose pujols or Desmond or kemp

    Also Is g. Bird worth a DL stash?

    Thanks

    Less a question and more an observation, given Villanueva’s national pride and the stadium’s elevation, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw his best impression of a young A-Gon during this series with the Dodgers.

    That is all.

    ROS Ranks: Ketel Marte, Wendle, Aledmys?

    Do you think Mejia or Vlad Jr. get called up this year, and any guess on timing?

    Thanks again for all your posts. Have a good one!

    What is your expectation of Alex Reyes when he comes back. Mostly reliever, or does he get into the rotation? Any idea what his eligibility might be as well? Thanks for you time.

    Would you do Jose Abreu and Francisco Lindor for Trout? 1B would be Cron while SS would be Chris Taylor

    OF would be Betts, Trout, and Eddie Rosario

            @Grey: ha.

            Is the Robbie Ray / Segura exchange close?

            Segura is my backup SS (have Trea), so he’s occupying a UTIL spot and I’d like to cash in on him. Not gonna keep him next year

            I could trade him for Darvish, too, but I think I like the Ray/Strickland deal more

    Hey Grey, just a quick follow up to our last post comment. Seems Monterrey Mexico’s elevation is 1,770 feet, whereas Denver’s elevation is obviously a mile or 5,280 feet. Quite a difference, but might still be enough to scare us off. Just thought I’d share. If anything, I’m more confused than ever. Haha. Might be risky to start Buehler, but if we’re not starting him against the Padres then when the hell do we start him? It just really sucks that we miss starting him at Petco–since this is technically a Pads home game.

    • Hater Bell

      Grey says:

      @GrassyKnollRedding: rudy updated SON for Mexico games and they’re positive starts, I’m thinking starting them

    I know you said hold Ozuna. But both he and Jose Martinez have not done much lately. The whole Cards team is not doing much. Martinez said he had sore feet last time he was dtd. How do you get rid of sore feet in baseball? Anyway should i drop either of these guys with Cron, Adams, Cordeiro, Soler, Dickerson and Rosario all available in my league at the moment?

    Looks like Soroka’s getting another start on Sunday vs. the Giants.

    A. For this weekend, do you like Gibson vs. CWS or Soroka vs. Giants better

    B. Long-term, IF Soroka sticks, how would you rank Soroka, Gibson, Williams, Clevinger?

    Howdy & happy Friday grey! To quote the famous artist known as R.Kelly: “it’s the freakin weekend, I’m about to have me some fun!”

    On to fantasy , I’m in a espn , H2h pts/ weekly lock league & just seeing which bat you’d add out of these best available ones? Not shooting for a particular position, looking for longer term as opposed to a one week waiver guy:

    – here’s bats I’m looking at:
    Eduardo Escobar (eligibility at 3b/SS/DH)

    Daniel Robertson (eligibility at SS & 2b)

    Jorge soler

    Matt Adams, thought he was fat not he’s slim shady

    Franchy Cordero

    Scott schebler

    Leonys Martin

    Joc pederson

    Solarte (eligibility at SS/2b/3b)

    Mark trumbo (eligibility at OF & DH)

    Eugenio suarez

    Christian Yelich

    Jose Bautista

    Sorry there’s quite a bit of names, but here are potential guys I’d drop for above mentioned bats: Jackie Bradley jr, Eduardo Nunez, and I prob won’t but teoscar Hernandez of Toronto is on my squad.

    My depth:

    1b Brandon belt, hosmer on bench, cj cron is currently my IF but also has eligibility at DH, Hanley Ramirez is my DH but has eligibility at 1b

    2b moncada starting then on bench Nunez eligibility at 2b, Gleybor Torres on bench has eligibility 2b & SS

    3b alex bregman starting, also have Todd Frazier who’s my utility, Miguel andujar, Nunez eligibility at 3b, Christian Villanueva

    SS starting is correa also have bregman who’s eligible at 3b & SS, Torres (SS & 2b)

    OF we start 4 & my starters are Bryce Harper, benintendi, acuna, teoscar Hernandez. On my bench I have Gregory polanco, nunez, Jackie Bradley jr, Michael brentley,

    DH is Hanley but also have CJ cron & Ohtani eligible there. Ohtani is SP/DH.

    Thanks man!

      As far as I can tell Dave’s rule of thumb seems to be…
      if a reliever is getting guys out, go ahead and play the match-up game or double-switch him
      if a reliever can’t throw strikes just give it some more time
      if you have a hot bat, go ahead and rest him

    Thank you, Nick Pivetta, for being the lastest ibna long line of pitchers to destroy my ERA & WHIP for the week.

    Berrios is killing me tonight. He keeps trying to hand the game away. His team puts up more points for him, he keeps handing points back. The friggin’ White Sox???? They have nine wins. In Berrios’ defense, no one can stop a massive power hitter like Leury Garcia? His first home run of the season. Oh well. High scores all around tonight.

        @Grey: just speculating based on the fact that he already has been pulled out of games 3x in the past 2 weeks, as recently as 2 games ago then was rested for the game after that. I would almost prefer a DL stint as opposed to a nagging injury.

      Adams

    • Willy Mo says:

      @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.

  123. Have to DL Ryu so in a 5×5— need K’s and W in that order mostly… ERA is my least need.

    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!

    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.

    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?

    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: what’s B-Hamilton’s value as a rotating 4th OF batting 9th?

    I know you were pretty bullish on him preseason, so wanted to know if that’s still the case or if you’d downgrade him a bit.

    • Grey

      His value is SAGNOF, that’s about it

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Grey: yeah that’s what I am thinking too – everyday it’s harder to see Mallex doing his thing as I am rostering Hamilton who isn’t stealing at the moment.

        • William Hung says:
          (link)

          Well looks like I can delay a decision for a day or 2 – Bedrosian is clearly not the closer in Anaheim coming in the 6th… Looks like I can roster both B-Ham and Mallex for now

      @Stephen Lyon: me liking these OAK 3 day streams in which at least 2 of them (mengden/cahill/triggs) are mostly available in a LOT of my leagues. this is even better than the LAA 3 day one a bit back (barria/heaney and somebody else, probably skaggs)

        @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: ryu’s DL taking too long had me JUST miss the smith start in an NL only where honestly he should’ve been owned already, will be now. when a guy’s groin gets teared from the bone like some kind of chicken dinner it shouldn’t take that many hours for a DL stint.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    Did Mookie Betts anger the baseball gods in some way? He’s getting nicked and dinged all the time lately.

    Drop conforto or Chapman for Cron? Or hold ? 12 team 5×5 Roto, no bench

    @Grey: I’m on the DeShizz bandwagon now… dropped Conforto

    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

      @William Hung: “waiver for gallo” what is that a 6 teamer? maybe a points league due to his K’s he might not be owned if it’s say a 10 teamer.

        • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: well sure, but you already know what size league you are in (i’d hope, but it is a league where box wine got dropped so based on that who knows)

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            @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

    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.

      @And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers!: of course due to baseball umps this was ruled a “triple”, which is fine for where i own wong (NL only), but it wasn’t even a single, a routine fly out.
