(NOTE: THIS POST WAS RELEASED EARLY YESTERDAY ON OUR PATREON. IT’S $5/MONTH.)

Being hearing a lot of gossip about Clint Frazier. That’s healthy. Ya know, some ginger tea. Don’t think the Yankees called Clint Frazier up just for make-up games, though this was overheard: “He’s not a clown?” Aaron Boone continued, “Oh, I thought he was for makeup games.” Then Boone laughed himself out of his mask.

Artwork by our talented writer, CoolWhip.

So, Clint Frazier has struggled to get real playing time with the Yankees, but maybe he’s this year’s spark plug. He does look like he’s fire. He’s a 20-homer, 7-steal, .260 hitter over a 162 games, and that lineup is so great, I’d take a flyer on Frazier. Some might say, “Clint Frazier? I like Mike Tauchman!” Yeah, Tauchman’s projected for 3 HRs, 2 SBs and a .255 average, how can he not be owned?! Dude’s a 20-game hot streak away from one good Trevor Story game! Okay, I’m being unfair and underselling. Projections don’t love Tauchman, but if he gets everyday at-bats, he’s worth a look or whoever is in that lineup replacing Stanton, whether it’s Aaron Hicks, Mike Ford, Clint Frazier, or PTBYankee’dL. So, this is kind of a Yankees’ placeholder in lineup endorsement, but Clint Frazier is the most interesting. Plus, *pinkie up as I sip* ginger tea. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Isiah Kiner-Falefa – Prior to this year, IKF was a IHOP pita sandwich rip-off that served Rooty-Tooty Fresh Turnip and Bean Hummus and a hot stack of shawarma. With the pandemic, the International Known Falafel had to close leaving a void that the Rangers’ IKF has filled nicely. Now if they can just lose that Odor.

Austin Nola – Just think if you own Austin and Aaron Nola, you can rename your team Drunk On Julio Borbon Street.

Mitch Moreland – Fun fact! In the middle of the night, if Cougs moves onto my side of the bed, I kick and yell, “*itch, more land.” Then apologize saying I was thinking about the waiver wire, which she naturally understands and tells me to go back to the couch.

Todd Frazier – Every time we think we’re out, the Toddfather pulls us back in with a hot streak and makes us agree to put a horse’s head in Adam Eaton’s bed.

Alec Bohm – Just went over him this morning. Get your scroll on. Also, can check my Alec Bohm fantasy from during the shutdown.

Jesus Aguilar – Didn’t think Jesus would be this valuable of a pickup for the Marlins for a few years when climate change caused the water to raise above field level.

Howie Kendrick – Sometimes I pick him up and drop him dozens of times saying, “Howie like me now…Howie doesn’t like me now…” Then I realize I should hold some of my waiver wire moves for other transactions.

Luis Urias – More of a deep league move, but if you’re desperate for a middle infielder, I could see grabbing him. Though, Uriasity has been known to kill the cat(egories).

Garrett Hampson – Was a bit surprised to see Hampson owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. Hampson is a player who is owned by people who think they know more than average bear, and ESPN owners, well, I’m not sure what they know.

Dylan Moore – On our Player Rater, any guess where Dylan Moore is ranked? Okay, now I’m gonna guess you’re too low. His numbers are so goofy out of control. He’s a .210 hitter with 7-homer, 10-steal speed over the course of 162 games. We’re seeing what it would’ve been like if Tuffy Rhodes had the good fortune to play in a 60-game season.

Jake Cronenworth – Unlike Dylan Moore, Kyle Seager, or other guys who are playing well above their heads like Al on Naked Gun, Cronenworth appears to be showing who he is, which is to say a good bet for average, power and speed. On the last podcast, I called him a poor man’s Tommy Pham — Tommy Shamwow? — and Ralph compared him to a rich man’s Andrew Benintendi — Andrew Bettertendi? Cronenworth sounds like a misspelled Google search for a currency rate question when traveling to Norway, but we’re not going to Europe and he can be valuable.

Maikel Franco – You don’t want to see Maikel succeed. I can tell. You think he’s a failed prospect that will never make good. I agree, but he’s been hot.

David Peralta – Feel like every time I mention you should pick up Peralta, I’m also thoroughly confused why he isn’t just owned. He is always* a top 40 outfielder. *Always? Yo, am I David Peralta’s agent? Who am, Scott Boron? Get eff out of here with that superlative. Though, Peralta is worth rostering, even in 10-team mixed leagues.

Kole Calhoun – Was thisclose — yes, no space, and italics! — to making Calhoun my lede buy this week, but my knowledge of Gunsmoke, The Virginian and other 50’s Westerns is too scant to make Rory Calhoun allusions.

Dylan Carlson – Just went over him this morning, claiming he could be great or useless. Napoleon would turn away from Versailles and say, “No, Grey’s Carlson hedges are the best.”

Austin Slater – Be careful of his elbow that kept him out of Wednesday’s game, but Austin Slater could be Saved By The Bay! Then Pablo Sandoval pokes his head in, “Meesa turtle!” Rethinks, “Wait, that’s Willians Astudillo talking like Jar Jar Binks. This Saved by the Bell reimagining stinks.”

Every Cardinals Hitter – *you searching for a player named ‘Every,’ can’t find one, exasperated, you run through a wall like the Kool-Aid Man* Welp, ,we lost that guy. Okay, so the Cardinals are going to attempt to play 55 games in about 17 days. That’ll go well for their pitchers, and won’t at all injure all of them. How’sever, their hitters are about to get a ton of at-bats. Everyone from Tommy Edman to Tyler O’Neill could get a a lot more counting stats than other players at their position.

Pablo Lopez – This is a Streamonator call. Like the call it makes to a consignment store to see if it has any secondhand electronics that seem lonely.

Brandon Bielak – This is also a Streamonator call. “Put the phone up to the LCD monitor and I’ll tell you if it’s lonely.”

Rafael Montero – A lot of teams have terrible bullpens, but the Rangers seem to always have a decent bullpen, then pick the worst one in the pen as their closer (Leclerc, not Montero). They were trying to make Leclerc a thing for like 18 months. Fetch ain’t got nothing on that.

Drew Pomeranz – Yates has been yikes and ‘ranz does dance, so eat a D, Fogerty.

Rowan Wick – Gonna drop a bunch of other names who aren’t owned in a majority of leagues: Buttrey, Taylor Williams (Who? Yeah, I don’t know), Ryan Pressly, Blake Taylor, Andre Scrubb (and that’s just one team), and Nick Anderson…Well, maybe.

Giovanny Gallegos – I don’t want any part of any Cardinals starter because of their schedule the rest of the way: “Welcome back to Cardinals baseball! Jack Flaherty, who only pitched 3 innings yesterday, says he’s good for four innings today, but the last two might be him kicking the ball towards home plate.” But, as I don’t mind their hitters, Gallegos might have more saves chances than most.

Jordan Romano – With Bass getting the hook the other day, and Ken Giles on a timetable for sometime in September, Romano has been great for Toronto, which is to say good in Buffalo. Interested in him just for his fastball gaining two miles per hour (up to 97) and his nasty slider. Gaining velocity at 27 years old? That’s quirky, Romano!

Jairo Diaz – Have we seen a matchup of Castellanos and Jairo? Because I’d like to see if the Greek God of Hard Contact tries to slice off a piece of Jairo’s spinning meat and corrects his teammates by saying, “It’s year-row.” Stop trying to rhyme Jairo with gyro? Sorry, I’m no Bard. Speaking of which, Daniel Bard might get Rockies saves too.

SELL

Kyle Lewis – *staggers around, clutching heart, falls over, Cougs bends over me and administers mouth-to-mouth while we’re both wearing masks, eventually I sit up like The Undertaker* What the hell happened to me? I felt like a shot went through my heart, like I was telling people to sell Kyle Lewis. Oh crap! I was! *screams for forty-five minutes, pauses to sip on a boba, begins to scream again* So, Kyle Lewis is playing a little above his head. On our Player Rater, he’s up in the rarefied air with Trout, FTJ and Blackmon. Okay, that’s goofy. Lewis is a great story, not a great Trevor Story. I still love him, but c’mon. He’s striking out nearly 30% of the time and has a BABIP that’s north of north when his average should be more like the movie, North — terrible. Not saying to trade Kyle Lewis for a piece of shoofly pie made of actual flies found in a shoe, but I would go to our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.

Saves + Holds league and I need a third RP.

Available choices. Which one to take?

1. Pressly – Been better last 3 appearances and if he’s right again I like having the closer for the Astros.

2. Colome

3. Rafael Montero

4. Sergio Romo – Has 8 S+H

5. Taylor Rogers

Here is my new lineup come Tuesday. Keeping D’Arnaud until we hear more on Sal Perez. Holds and Saves are separate cats.

S Perez
Murphy, Suarez, D Smith
McMahon, Tatis, Story
Rosario, Laureano, Frazier, Happ, O’Neill/Choo
DH-Ohtani
Cole, Hendricks, Buehler, Giolito
Iglesias, Lugo, Rosenthal, , Rainey, Karinchak

Wire: Joc, Sano, Kendrick, Newman, Grichuk, Cutch
Odorizzi, Javier, Hauser, Waino, Gaus
Sulser, Reyes, Pagan, Jeffress

1. Assuming Sal is ok, drop D’Arnaud for?
2. Second base remains a mystery for me. Dropped Kendrick after two days out and was rewarded by McMahon. But he feels like a Coors batty. Hold or ?
3. Muncy could be available which may solve 2b. Probably cost me Iglesias and D’Arnaud. Worth it?

14 team OBP/HR/R/RBI/SB/TB

Was fully expecting to drop C Will Smith last night due to his struggles and potentially short stay on the IL, but then I checked out his baseball savant numbers and dude seems like he’s been extremely unlucky this season. He’s basically toward the top percentile in literally every offensive category from exit velocity, barrel % xwOBA, xSLG, etc. So….given this is a deep format and the fact he might only need the minimum days on the IL, would you hold him on the bench (assuming he comes back after minimum time) and just play the hot hand till he comes back or fully move on? Options on the waiver are: M Perez, Narvaez, Stassi, Kelly, S Murphy, Maldonado.

Thanks!

This is my first year playing with a SV+HLD category so my strategy was to completely punt closers and just snatch up guys who were on the verge of being closers, or who I thought who get a bunch of holds – it hasn’t really worked out too well as I didn’t realize most guys can go a week without getting a hold. Should I just start replacing some of my guys with lesser closers like Rosenthal and Susler?
Here’s my bullpen (I also thought stacking might be a good strategy, but it’s not working out that way). I also am playing H2H, so I’m trying to make sure I take this category every week – which is why I have so many… using Rudy’s tools for holds guys hasn’t worked too well yet (such as Stammen, Diego Castillo, and Barnes)

So is the strategy in SV+HLDs leagues to still grab closers?

-Karinchak
-Wittgren
-Romo
-Felix Pena (that SP/RP eligibility)
-Scrubb
-Montero
-Gallegos

might be the same guy from otani’s 2nd start and carrasco’s last start (that ump was straight up horrible shrunken strike zone, pretty sure had at least 5-6 strikes called balls for those 2 pitchers, directly resulting in fake walks that were most of them objecitvely K’s looking). man the ump info needs to be easier to find (esp in advance), it could be used along with SON. this of course assumes certain umps are consistently bad in the same way, which isn’t at all for sure true anyway.

Weekly roster advice. Last in pitching in 12 teamer, so made some moves with so- called aces. Not my normal team but what is normal? Will drop one bench bat when Laureano returns.

Hitting categories are: Runs, RBIs, Ks, SB, Ave, Walks, 1B, 2b, 3b HRs
Pitching Categories are: HRs allowed, Ks, QS, W, L, Saves, Holds, ERA, WHIP. Last in ERA, WHIP, Wins.

C- S Perez
CI- Murphy, Eugenio, Dozier
MI- Kendrick, Story, Tatis
OF: Rosario, Choo, Happ, D Smith, Frazier (good advice!)
DH- Ohtani
Bench: D’Arnaud Sus: Laureano
SP- Cole, Buehler, Giolito, Hendricks,
RP: Iglesias, Rosenthal, May, Rainey, Reyes
IL:Stras

Wire: Tauchman, Rio, Odorizzi, Kela, Sulser, Petit, Wick, Jeffress,Pagan

Giolito is really struggling with his control so far this year. And getting hit pretty good. I think his walk rate is as high as in previous years even though K rate is similar to last year.

Wong with the amount of double hitters
D. Smith .333 and 3 hr’s over past seven but going up against Nola and Wheeler

Leaning Grossman because of speed and facing two right handers over the weekend.

Even with Andrus in Colo he’s been dropped to 8th in lineup and hitting .130 past 7 days.

Looking to pick up a bat too, obp league: a. slater, d. smith or t. o’neill ? go with tyler for the extra games? i wonder how they’ll be resting hitters to offset the workload.

Also, please rank these 2b because mcmahon is awful and gimenez may lose time with cano back: la stella, c. taylor, solak (1 game from eligible). i’m leaning solak but thinking not a big value diff between any of the 3. thoughts?

Tauchman went 3-5 with 4 RBI last night, and he still left 4 men on base! The Yankees are just so fruitful it’s absurd.

Baez and JDM too much to give up to get Vlad in a keep forever league? I’m falling out of it quickly this season. We keep 8 and I’d be looking at keeping Trea, Freeman, Bregman, Alvarez, Vlad, Bieber, Giolito and then 1 of Biggio/Albies/Adell.

Thanks!

Closer Monkey says Pomeranz, and Pads went to Pom a few times already in save situations. Pom has looked way better than Pagan too fwiw

Kudos to cool whip! Had stones to foresee Lynn’s dominant fastball in Coors. I picked up Calhoun and Choo for the series. Ugh. No question. Just a shout out

Lance Lynn is a bad man. I think if they played Colorado again tonight he could gut our a QS

Agree with K. Lewis as a sell, or in my case a sit (beginning Monday) and doing same with Grish…it’s Franny and Bux time! Sounds like an old cartoon, like the Yogi Bear reference I thought you were way too young for (smarter than the average bear) It’s time for Hampson to go crazy and swipe a bunch pick-in-nick baskets!!! BTW don’t know I agree with the Hampson owners feel like they know more take. He helped me win a title at end of last year – thought there’d be a carryover, but they are the Rockies and that comes with a B. Black roadblock. Think somebody got to Bud? “Hey you have a leadoff hitter on the bench! WTF” 2020 baseball is back baby! Can’t wait to see Yordan swing it!!! Enjoy your work Grey, rock on

Sup,

I haven’t been able to able to be around as much as usual. Starting up at a new job and hoping things smooth out soon.
I’ve got a conspiracy theory alert: Manfred was scared that players were going to get sick more often and pass it to other players from different teams during games. Soooo, they conjured up a bunch of jank 1980’s Spaulding baseballs to start the year. More weak grounders, big flys that didn’t carry=less baserunners and shorter games.

Now that they’ve seen the games are safe they’ve broken back into the happy fun balls this week.

Thanks-still teaching. Just at a really small school. No more large district with their pants in the wind policies- it was too much. They threw change ups better the Pedro.

I’m just so happy to lace up me new Yordan’s today!

Hey Grey,

I keep looking at Pollock and Renato Nunez producing and I wonder as a bench bat you think Dozier is a drop for either?

Also what do you think ROS, Framber, Merril Kelly or Spencer Howard?

Lastly, you think we get any value out of Alex Reyes this season? I wonder if with the Cards’ workload means he might see him used quite a bit.

Thanks man!

Rogers looks shaky. After his bad appearances (2 of last e), would you rather have him or Colome?

Given up 7 hits in his last 5 appearances (4.1 IP); 4 R; 6 K; 8.31 ERA. FIP 2.61, xFIP 2.07 and SIERRA 2.11 look great though. Maybe because he hasn’t walked a batter yet??? Hitter have more than doubled their barrel percentage against him to 16.7% and his hard hit rate has gone up from 29.7% to 44.4%.

It is a small sample size. Just comparing him with Colome. You said you would take Colome over Rogers. I had to choose between the two. So I was going with your rec.
