Yesterday, the Cubs scored seventeen runs, so enough jibber-jabbering, let’s get to it!  Starting this whole she bangs, she bangs, Oliver’s got bangs in the 2nd inning, Addison Russell (2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs) hit his 5th homer as he continues to hit ninth.  Joe Maddoning says he’s hitting Addison ninth to take pressure off him.  McNulty would call that bunk.  (By the by, tell me this doesn’t look like McNulty.)  Isn’t there pressure just being in the major leagues?  Did Addison not see how the Cubs pushed aside Javier Baez and Arismendy from year to year?  Bunk!  Chris Coghlan (2-for-3, 3 runs, hitting .251) needs to hit fifth?  David Ross (1-for-5, 1 run) in any lineup should be hitting ninth.  There’s absolutely no reason Russell should be that low.  Move him up!  Then Kyle Schwarber went 4-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs in his first major leagues start, and became only the third Cub in their history to have four hits in his first major league start.  The other two were two guys you never heard of, which makes this record depressing.  Thanks, Elias Sports Bureau!   Oh, and there’s no pressure on Schwarber as he hits sixth?  Okay, I’ll let it go.  I pray to the deity of your choice that Schwarber gets four hits in every game until Sunday, Miguel Montero stays injured and Epstein says, “Okay, Schwarber schways.  He schways!  Stays, sorry, it’s hard to say anything normal after Schwarber.”  Then (Yes, it keeps going!) Chris Denorfia went 2-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .396.  Put the microwave on defrost and stick in Ted Williams’s head!  Never to be outdone (or overdue, as the case might be), Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer.  Finally (I’m exhausted!), Kris Bryant (2-for-6, 4 RBIs and his 8th homer) as he grand salami’d in the ninth.  You at a 2016 fantasy draft, “I need a Bryant.”  *Smash*  As a pie gets thrown in your face.   Five over-the-internet dollars to be paid out in fake installments, if you get that reference.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Tsuyoshi Wada – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.68.  Keep throwing like that and Tsuyoshi’s going to get three power-ups and reunite Mario and Luigi.  I streamed him in one league, and what I’ve found with Wada is the Stream-o-Nator can’t figure him out.  It likes a Wada start and you need to hang air freshener from your fantasy team.  SON doesn’t like him, and he pitches solid.

Ervin Santana – Will make his first of three rehab starts this Saturday and rejoin the Twins on July 4th.  Nothing says America like fireworks, hot dogs and baseball players returning from suspensions.  I’m not rushing out to add Ervin.  Not because he showed up on my wife’s Instagram, but because he’s not more than a streamer in most leagues and he could be severely behind in his preparation.  It wouldn’t surprise me to see him rusty until late-July, early-August.

Tommy Milone – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners (zero walks), 5 Ks.  Twins always manage to get these no Ks, no walks guys.  It’s like Brad Radke was a poor college student 25 years ago that supported himself on sperm donations.

Lance Lynn – Aiming to return June 25th or 26th.  Hey, bucko, only pitcher that should be aiming is Archer.

Carlos Martinez – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.80.  Because I like to torture myself.  On my fantasy team before I dropped him, C-Mart’s ERA was 4.89 with a 1.46 WHIP in 35 IP.  Guess it was the next 170 innings I wanted.  FMFBBL!

Wil Myers – Wil’ll miss eight weeks after having wrist surgery to remove a spur.  Eastwood never needed spurs removed, you yellow belly!  The Padres are saying Myers could be back mid-August.  Yeah, and at that point, you’ll get about 8 runs, 2 homers and 6 RBIs in the rest of the season.  Lowercase yay!  If you need the room, I wouldn’t be worried about dropping him.

Will Middlebrooks – 1-for-3 and his 9th homer.  I don’t even want to tell you what 3rd basemen he’s been better than this year.  It’ll just be depressing.

Jesse Chavez – 7 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.52.  Just because it’s fun to point and laugh at me.  On my fantasy team, Chavez had two starts and a 3.75 ERA when I dropped him.  Crazy thing is this is the RCL where I dropped C-Mart and Chavez and I’m in first and have 11 points in ERA with 3.16.

Billy Burns – 3-for-5, 3 runs as the A’s exploded for 16 runs, knocking seven in off of Cory Mazzoni for the Mazzacre.  Mazzoni has now given up 12 runs in his last 1 2/3 IP.  Looks like Vin Mazzaro’s Witness Protection isn’t going that well.

Billy Butler – 4-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer.  I can only imagine how much fun it was for him to hit against Otis Spunkmeyer.

Ben Zobrist – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 3 RBIs.  Still hot, still schmotato’ing.

Daniel Murphy – Due to return from the DL on Tuesday.  When Puigs fly he’s going to return two days ago! *intern whispers in my ear*  I’m told they mean next Tuesday.

Jon Niese – 7 IP, 3 ER, 11 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.31.  Niese must’ve got the clue to pitch better after Gee was DFA’d.  It’s not surprising, Niese is like a bloodhound with that schnoz.

Drew Hutchison – 5 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.33.  Sadly, for now, that’s what I’d expect a good start to be from Hutchison.  I mean, it’s okay, but nothing special.

Kevin Pillar – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting near-.350 in the last week, and has multiple hits in four of his last seven games.  Hot schmotato, grab him!

Danny Valencia – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer, and 2nd homer in the last three games.  Valencia won’t be Awesometown forever, but he’s worth a little day trip.

Felix Hernandez – 8 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks.  So I guess F-Her got that last start off his chest like an easy girl from high school that comes back from college all reformed like she wasn’t telling you at the movies to cut a hole in the bottom of the popcorn container.  What?  Too specific?

Madison Bumgarner – 8 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks.  And that same girl has a tramp stamp of roses that had everyone calling her “Bum gardener.”

Corey Dickerson – Hit the DL again with the Tree Man disease, plantar fasciitis.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets shut down for the year as he opts for surgery, hoping to get back healthy next year.  Not even joking.  If it doesn’t happen in July, it’ll definitely happen in August or September.  They’re not going to risk him having this injury again next year.  For his sake, you hope he does get the surgery now, otherwise he’s gonna have an animated red foot all next year with John Madden standing above him, screaming, “Tough-actin Tinactin!”

Carlos Gonzalez – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  Don’t bet against Rockies hitters.  Ever.

Jose Altuve – Left yesterday’s game with a flare up of his hamstring injury.  The Astros said they’re not ready to send him to the DL.  They might just invest in an oversized magnifying glass so they can get a proper MRI.

Carlos Correa – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer as he bats 2nd.  Thankfully, Correa didn’t believe the email that he received that read, “We want you to play for the Cardinals,” when the sender’s email was [email protected]

Preston Tucker – 1-for-5 and his 3rd homer.  Damn, I gambled on Domingo Santana, and he didn’t play.  Props to whoever grabbed Tucker.  You need to own every hitter who is starting in Coors.

Chris Carter – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and 12th homer as he homered off John Axford (2/3 IP, 2 ER).  Chris Carter loves hitting off Axford, saying he has a library of scouting reports he calls, The Ax Files.

Jake Marisnick – 1-for-4 and his 5th homer.  Ride the Silver Bullet!

Paul Goldschmidt – 2-for-4 and his 19th homer.  Au Shizz!

Welington Castillo – 2-for-4 and his 4th homer.  Where’s the beouf?!  No, that’s not as in Shia LaBoeuf.  Is he still alive?  Cust askin’.

Yasmany Tomas – 3-for-4, 1 RBI and his 4th steal.  Who’s giving this guy 89 foot leads off first?

Chase Anderson – 6 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 2.84.  That ERA isn’t just in home games or just games in Petco or just games on Wednesday.  That’s his ERA.

Hector Santiago – 5 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.77.  See what I said about Anderson.  Or look one-eighth of an inch above.

Kole Calhoun – 2-for-4, 1 run as he hit in the two hole and not behind The Two Hole.  The Sciosciapath finally ended the whole “Kole’s going to be our cleanup hitter” nonsense. If only Scioscia’s commitment was to an asylum.

Starling Marte – Left yesterday’s game with ankle pain.  Is it because I was too excited about him yesterday?  I’ll curtail my excitement, please!

John Danks – 7 IP, 3 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 5.16.  “Charlene, how do I put an emoji on Danksie’s Facebook page?”  That’s Gavin Floyd asking his wife.

Jung-ho Kang – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer.  King Kang ain’t got shizz on me!  That’s NSFW unless you work for a drug cartel.

Kevin Gausman – Will start on Saturday in Toronto.  The Orioles really want to kill any confidence Gausman might have.  First, they take him from the rotation to the bullpen.  An idiotic move the Mets wouldn’t even do.  Now they demote Wei-Yin Chen for a few days, just to get him off regular rest, a move that’s sure to mess with him, and they scramble Kevin Gausman in vain, sunk game.

Chris Parmelee – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 3rd homer as he hits third for an ailing Adam Jones.  I feel like Ted McGinley licking a pie tin every time Parmelee steals cushy matchup at-bats from Jones.  That’s my pie!  Parmelee also hit two homers on Tuesday — two for Tuesday! — and looks to be starting over Delmon Young.  Delmon blames the Jews.

Travis Snider – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 2nd homer.  The entire Orioles team is hot right now (or it’s due to facing the Phils pitching).  I can’t make heads or tails of the Orioles outfield playing time when Jones is healthy.

Matt Wieters – 2-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI, hitting .355.  That’s not a typo, but it should be redacted, because I shouldn’t even be calling attention to what a catcher is doing.

Ben Revere – and his 16th steal, and his 4th steal in four games.  After the game, Revere added a special skills section to his LinkedIn profile.  “Stealing bases,” “juggling,” and “being nice to the elderly,” then he pinged 29 GMs.

Freddy Galvis – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  After the game, he tried to see if he could fit in Revere’s suitcase.

Kevin Correia – 5 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.69 thru two games.  Well, that’s thru two games and smuggled over the demarcation zone for Correia.

Mike Fiers – 5 IP, 6 ER, ERA up to 4.50.  Justin Masterson used to be the Passive Aggressive Starter, because he’d pitch well and then awful, but now Masterson is just awful and I think we have a new contender for the title.  Fiers pitches well on my bench, so I make the bed for him to get back in and he makes like Spud from Trainspotting.  His peripherals are so nice that I’d try to hold on, but I can understand patience starting to waiver.  With waiver being the key word.

Alcides Escobar – 2-for-5, 1 run, 4 RBIs.  That’s cool and all, but why isn’t he stealing bases anymore?  He has 4 steals on the year.  How is that even possible?  Does he have the yips in his legs?  Like how Chuck Knoblauch couldn’t throw to first, does Alcides look at second base and see a fondant cake, which reminds him of his mother leaving him in front of the TV watching Martha Stewart Living?  I got questions, y’all!

Lorenzo Cain – 2-for-3, 1 run, 1 RBI.  Thank you for staying hot; my firstborn for two more weeks of it.

Omar Infante – 2-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI, hitting at the Marla Gibbs Line.  He hasn’t done much this year (or any year really), but he has multiple hits in three straight games, and looks like a slight schmotato.

Andrelton Simmons – Continues to sit out after taking a pitch off his fingers.  The problem here is he usually heals injuries by touching his glowing finger to the injury, but if the finger’s the injured party, then it’s not as easy.

Freddie Freeman – 0-for-3.  Will sit out Thursday with a wrist sprain.  Could you read my giddiness as I typed that?  I’m a bad person.

Mike FoltynewiczBraves optioned him back to Triple-A.  The Triple-A equipment manager in charge of stitching names on jerseys said, “Nooooooooooo!!!”

Cameron Maybin – 2-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI and his 12th steal.  Maybin, I’m amazed at the way I really need you.

Alex Wood – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.40 vs. the Red Sox.  Usually I point out an opponent when they’re either very good or very bad, and ‘vs. Red Sox’ has gone from one extreme to the other in the last few months.

Brock Holt – 2-for-4, hitting .314.  No foolin’, when I say, the way no one is sticking in the three-hole in the Red Sox lineup, Holt’s gonna be there soon.

Mike Napoli – 1-for-3 and his 10th homer, hitting .204.  Oh, Napoli, making me want to Punt Vecchio you.

Michael Pineda – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners (1 hit), 9 Ks, ERA at 3.54.  The only hit he surrendered was a home run to the pre-teen Christian Yelich (1-for-3 and his 4th homer).  Funny that an adolescent was excited to hit against Pineda.  I wonder if Yelich was disappointed that no candy fell out.

Scott Van Slyke – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, as he was activated from the DL and inserted into left field.  Whew, thank God they don’t have to play that Guerrero fella anymore!

Clayton Kershaw – 6 IP, 4 ER, 6 baserunners, 10 Ks but lost the game to Wandy Rodriguez 5 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 11 baserunners, 1 K.  Um, huh?  Was it Kriss Kross Day at the stadium with them wearing their uniforms backwards?

Joey Gallo – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer.  I’ll tell you what after this clunky opening to a sentence, Gallo looks like he could hit 40 homers next year.

Prince Fielder – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 11th homer.  This was his first home run in two weeks since I told you to sell him.  Yup.

Stephen Strasburg – Pitched well in his rehab start and should return next week.  Anyone want to join me in a prayer hexagon?

Jordan Zimmermann – 7 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.75.  Didn’t win this game, and it was against the Rays, so it could be argued that his start should’ve been better, but who are you, Thurgood Marshall arguing shizz?  This was the best I’ve seen Zimmermann look all year.  One walk and eight Ks makes it seem like old times, Charles Grodin.

Steven Souza – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 13th homer.  On our Player Rater, Souza is nearly a top 20 outfielder on the year.  Trumbo isn’t even top 60.  Oh, and yesterday, Souza bunted and came around to score on two errors for the Little League home run.  Somebody buy that man an ice cream!

Miguel Cabrera – 1-for-5 and his 15th homer, hitting .345, his OBP is .446 and leads the AL in OBP.  Guess who’s number two in the AL.  I’ll give you three guesses.  Dick Grayson?  What?  That’s Batman’s ward.  Kipnis is number two at .408.  Your guesses suck.

Jay Bruce – 5-for-6, 2 runs.  The Garden State salutes you, Bruce.

Brayan Pena – 4-for-6, 1 run, 1 RBI.  Okay, so if you accidentally drafted Brayan instead of Yan, you would’ve been better off, but, c’mon, no one can own Brayan with a straight face.

Todd Frazier – 2-for-6, 2 runs, 5 RBIs and his 21st and 22nd homers.  Forget Frazier, his year is so insane, I’m calling him Crazier.

    On this day in baseball history:
    2014 With the only batter reaching base as a result of a throwing error by shortstop Hanley Ramirez in the seventh inning, Clayton Kershaw no-hits the Rockies at Dodger Stadium, striking out a career-high 15 batters. The left-hander’s teammate Josh Beckett also threw a no-hitter 24 days ago, making it the shortest span between no-hitters by a team since the Reds’ Johnny Vander Meer accomplished it in consecutive starts, four days apart, in 1938.

    Keeping the NO hits coming!

    I picked up then dropped Bruce. He’s more of a bench bat in this league but frustrating.

    Also , I have an NA spot in this league.. Matz is taken. I have Buxton but he’s up now. Would you NA Santana? Or is there someone (minor leaguer) who you can think of not named Matz or Seagar who can have an absolute impact at some point this season?

  11. I have an offer to receive Garrett Richards for Zimmermann & David Robertson. If I pull the trigger on this trade, I can pick-up Dellin Betances off waivers to replace Robertson. Should I accept this proposal or hold? Also, should I trade Buxton for Yelich, the man child? Thanks!

      @madden_curser: First, take the deal. Second, how the heck is Betances on waivers? Even before he became the closer, he was a top 10 RP, and now who knows when Miller will be back.

      • Well, 8 teamer with 2 RP slots, so Closers are not so much in demand in our league, so I don’t mind trading away Robertson so much, even tho he is great. There are other options available and the Black Hose haven’t been winning that many games [email protected]Five-On-One:

    14 team H2H redraft with hits/OBP over AVG and total bases. these hitters (just dropped Heyward recently for bringing up Buxton, and heyward got waivered)
    d’arnaud
    E5
    Dozier
    Panda
    Bogaerts
    OF – Bautista/Marte/Souza
    util – Franco/Burns
    BN Polanco/Buxton
    DL – Soler/V-mart
    Drop anybody for any of these: (i’m bottom 4 in RBI’s/OBP/hits/total bases but top 3 in steals and runs, midpack in homers)
    Lawrie/Holt/Calhoun/Jace P/Canha/Smoak/E.Rosario/B.Paulsen. Holt has best OBP lately but pretty awful counting stats (10 in his last 45 at bats, 19 in last 81 at bats), but that might just be lineup/luck problems, but he would of course be able to sub in for ANYBODY except D’Arnaud, and that’s useful. I used to have Leonys (dropped for Polanco), Burns is currently better version of both, but with less power potential. Leonys was added yesterday as well (he was free agent for awhile, at least 4 people have owned him so far)

    2 Simple Questions For the Wisdom of the Crowd

    -In the fight to replace Dickerson – Leonys Martin, Brett Lawrie, Brock Holt, or Wil Middlebrooks? (Position doesn’t matter)

    Listened to me some Baltimore sports radio this am… Regarding Chen’s demotion – apparently he sucks after going 7 innings or more… Something like 8-13 with a ERA around 5.00. But he’s even worse against the lefty smashing Blue Jays. Your Snider/O’s outfield comment =spot on. Buck typically has a long leash and a plan, but ???

    In your next write up can you do a separate entry for each leading All-Star vote getter on the KC Royals? Or to save time/space, just focus on the ones who aren’t leading for their position… ;) #joke #hackjob

    ain’t even mad I left Gallo on the bench vs Kershaw. my ideal HR derby: Gallo, Harper, Stanton, Alex Rodriguez, Pederson, Bautista, Bryant (Kris), Bryant (Kobe). Think of the narratives! After the derby: Luhnow vs Mozelik, no gloves, 1v1.

    Do I start Schwarber (Salazar), Choo (Greinke), or LaRoche (Cole) tonight OPS league?

    I need to pick up someone who can steal a base or two this weekend. Does Rajai only start against lefties? Should I scoop him, Leonys, Gose, Pillar? I don’t even look at SB’s cuz they’re just 1 of 8 h2h cats and guys who are good at them usually suck at the other 7. It’s like real life, stolen bases just aren’t that important. thx grey pls

    Furthermore he has an ERA of 1.37 in the 7 good starts, and 11.08 in the bad starts. Russian Roulette at it’s finest!

    Bauer, Fiers, Cashner… I’ve got room for two at the back of my rotation. Or maybe none of them. ROS rank? I’m leaning towards Cashner as the least hopeful.

            If Correa is top 7, so top 6 (Desmond Tulo, Hanley, Reyes, Peralta, Castro?) are still over Correa? But it seems like Correa should be over Reyes Peralta in the season end. Thoughts appreciated.

    OK so the other day when you told me to advance Syndergaard off my separate minor league roster I ended up picking up Garcia for a spot start 1st …now I am not sure I want to drop Garcia.
    If I advance him he is on my roster for good & essentially this league is a keeper league with 18 keepers (forever) in a 12 team 5X5 roto.
    Potential drops to advance Syndergaard would be J Garcia, McHugh, Bolsinger, Happ or May.
    I also have Carlos Correa on my minor league roster & could drop one the above pitchers or Morrison, Trumbo, or Segura (although I have a weak spot for my Brewer SS). If it helps I am currently carrying 10 SPs so maybe I could lose 2 to get Syndergaard & Correa rostered.
    Thanks Grey

    In terms of points output do you think it’s safe to start him? I just want a positive score!

    I’m only up by like 30 but don’t have any other starters going today.

        (4) SP: Scherzer, A. Wood, T. Ross, Chavez

        (1) DL: Lynn

        Which one or two guys for each day (in case they get scooped up) should I stream next in my points league? I’m guessing you’ll say “Go with SON” so in that case I should feel confident starting them all except for like May and Hahn right?

    Grey,

    In a keeper, h2h, league, would you trust Gallo ROS over Plouffe at 3rd? I am considering adding Sano since it seems that his call up could be very soon.

    My team is quite solid, so the move may not be 100% necessary, I just get the feeling that Sano is going to be a monster.

    Thanks

    Has your longterm view of C Dick changed much, or is it simply a lost/injured season that is a blip on his fantasy radar? He has been made available as an 18th round keeper in a league I am not in the running for this season. Worth the price of acquisition ((Yelich (19th)and 3 top 100, not top 50, non-keepers))

    Thanks for any input. I was preparing to make a run at Donaldson otherwise.

    10-tm 9×9 limited moves (20/yr, I have 15 left) H2H league, looking to drop Myers, could drop Ventura as well. Have Fernandez coming off the DL in a couple weeks. Aoki (LF/RF) and Travis (2B) are my bench bats. Was thinking about dumping Myers for a multi-position wrench given the limited moves. Both Holt (1B/2B/3B/SS/LF/CF/RF) and Harrison (2B/3B/LF/RF) are available. Given that Desmond is the only SS on my roster and he’s been butt, should I go for Holt? Segura’s also out there but doesn’t have the multi-eligibility.

    If not a bat (or in addition, if I’m also dropping Ventura), available SP include Chavez, McCullers and Taijuan, and Carson Smith’s available as a 4th closer (I’ve been mediocre in SV and ratios).

    Which 1 or 2 are you adding from the above?

    Great write-up Grey! I have 2 quick questions for ya:

    1) I got Arenado and Bryant in a keeper and can only hold onto one. Bryant is awesome, but do you think he can stay at 3rd? If he moves to the OF, Arenado becomes more valuable and that defense is stellar.

    2) My team is loaded w/ power (see question 1) but I’m hurting on pitching. I’m looking to sell high on Nelson Cruz. What range of SP should I look to target?

    The podcast just wasn’t the same w/o your giggle this week. Keep up the great work!

    8 Team H2H League, currently in 1st place and would like to keep it this way. My team has been attacked by the injury bug. Odorizzi and Miller are controlling my two DL slots. Just had to dump Wil Myers the other day to get a live body. And now I’ve got a basically dead Dickerson. Do I hang on to him and see what happens (and then toss him on the DL when Odorizzi comes back) or do I dump him for someone like Leonys who’s actually a productive member of a baseball club?

    H2H – H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBPS

    *It is a 5 player keeper league, but Dickerson doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell to make the cut.

    1. 12 team H2H. stream him or hendricks @ MIN (SON don’t like it), or rubby vs SD
    2. 14 team roto. BB and whip, but no ERA in this one. over fiers ? other options in this league are may/gibson/b.anderson/miley/nelson/phelps/porcello.
    3. 12 team roto. over hendricks?
    4. 16 team roto. can’t be over E-Rod or Vince yet right? they’ve looked really good already at times
    5. 14 team roto with QS. over nelson/morton
    6. over happ in 14 team dynasty with QS
    7. over happ or fiers in a 10 teamer (likely not as replacement options aren’t good at all)

        @Grey: since lyons is available in all of these leagues now that i think about it, him over wisler in 1-3 and 8 (SON loves Lyons at PHI)? Also, is it a holding situation with Fiers in 2 (52 moves left on year), and Hendricks in 3 (59 moves left), or a grab of
        2. one of guys listed in 2 above
        3. c.anderson, w.chen, ubaldo and all of same guys listed in 2.
        Forgot about 7 is really a 20 teamer, and these two have moves limits. Clearly i grabbed Wisler over Locke last night in NL only.

    Hey Grey,

    Love the daily notes! Curious about acquiring Stanton in my league, even though I’m obviously buying high with the monster numbers he’s put up lately. Redraft 5×5 mixed weekly H2H league with shallow bench (3 bench spots, 1 DL) so the waiver wire is juicy-ish. I have Rizzo, Votto and EE at 1B, 1B/3B & Util, and I have Victor Martinez coming off the DL and the ability to snag Chris Carter, Trumbo or Maikel Franco off the wire if V-Mart doesn’t come roaring back strong. I also have a solid rotation with Sale, Greinke, Harvey on top and Hammel/Bauer/McCullers/Gio G following them – could grab Lackey, T May or Matz, among others, off the wire.

    What I’m trying to say is, what do you think about offering my friend Votto and Harvey for his Stanton? I want a win-win deal, he’s a close friend and I figure a top-5 overall player is worth 2 top-40 overall players?

    • Grey

I didn’t grab him just because he’s hot, but the raters loved him (OBP/OPS league) and he looks like he only sucked for like 1. 5 years due to having a really long acting oblique thing.

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: only factor that really makes sense would be if they really want him to long term be a catcher, which they should, if he can. they shouldn’t care about that he’s currently hitting great just to leave him up (and they shouldn’t care about us). since they aren’t letting him catch at all now, clearly he’s not ready to be a catcher at MLB level just yet. Their team long term would be much better with him catching and them filling their OF spots (like bryant in LF, which is likely anyway) with other people.

        • FrankGrimes says:

          @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo:

    in dynasty with K/9 drop which of hendricks/fiers for attempting with 15/20th waiver to get shark, just dropped by the same guy who also dropped rusney. some bum switched teams and basically feels so spoiled that he now has a good team for the first time, he’s cutting underperformers. wish i knew this was gonna happen, i wouldn’t have used waivers on such players as inciarte and fiers had i had any idea somebody would be this stupid. Guy’s getting ripped on all over message board.

    • Flowers misses his old glasses... he's ok tho says:
      (link)

      @Flowers misses his old glasses… he’s ok tho: in fact, since comish in this league is BOS, and had 2nd waiver, it’s possible something fishy went on with dropping rusney could’ve been a stipulation to even get this much better team than he used to have. the only other person with better waiver than the comish was a co-comish who knows the main one quite well. man this probably ain’t true, but suspicious things lead to wondering about reasons, and in this case they could be quite sinister.

    i just checked on recent rotoworld posts about buchholez to see if i could find where they copyright infringed on “regression fairies” and i can’t find it. this was mentioned almost at the top of today above.

        @Grey: damn, you need to be registered for that site to look back to less than most recent post. that’s actually way worse if they are both making money AND stealing your shit. It’s one thing to use it in good free humor like rotoworld could have.

    melancon might be back. 3 K’s in last 5 batters faced. It is the white SUX, but still. he somehow learned to keep up a great whip without K’s, and if those are back, he should go back into nearly top 5 closer land.

    So the real question is who gets the headline tomorrow?

    The Harper injury?

    Or Nick Markakis setting the record for consecutive errorless games at 393?

    Ya know in leagues with fielding percentage he’s gotta be a first rounder in 2016.

      @Jaymz: francona actually uses his best RP in smart way, like TB does. small lead and 2 guys on after rain delay hammel couldn’t go anymore.

    BN alcides/grichuk
    DL lowrie
    NA buxton
    I’ve been waiting for buxton to do something good before dropping somebody for him.
    1. do i drop coghlan i guess for buxton when i do it?
    2. do i drop anybody else for any of: trumbo/paulsen/tucker/snider/parmelee/dilson h./BJ upton or just drop somebody to stream for off days (catcher mostly), or other good matchups (guys at COL)
    weakest in OBP/OPS/steals, strongest in hits/RBI’s/XBH.

    Fiers is a streamer. He is only a streamer. His fastball flies too close to the sun. Say it! SAY IT!
