The Yankees called up Clint Frazier on Saturday.  The Yankees are like you at a concert after your first bathroom break.  “I had sixteen beers and I really gotta whizz.”  *goes to the bathroom, then sips your seventeen beer*  “Damn, I just took a whizz, and now I have to go again.”  The childproof seal has been broken.  The Yankees waited about five years too long to promote some of their rookies, and now they’re taking a whizz every third day.  (I’m mixing metaphors, aren’t I?)  I wonder if the Yankees are aggressively promoting rookies now because of how well Judge is doing.  It’s confirmation bias, or some Psych 1010 term.  In the minors, Frazier went 12 HRs, 9 SBs and .257 in 73 games.  His strikeouts weren’t terrible, and that line looks like it could hold in the majors, i.e, 20/15/.250 in 162 games.  That’s if he has playing time the rest of the year, which is, of course, no guarantee with Holliday, Hicks, Gardner, Ellsbury, though if they were candy, they’d all be brittle.  I’d grab Frazier in all leagues to see what he can do.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:

CC Sabathia – Will return to the rotation on Tuesday.  Hey, that’s tomorrow.  The 4th of July!  A day when our forefathers said, “We will no longer live under the rule of a monarchy, though we should strongly consider other socioeconomic constraints.”  Then Ben Franklin added, “I’m bad and boujee.”

Luis Severino – 5 1/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 3.52.  Cheer up, Luis See K, even Louis C.K. did Blue Jasmine.

David Paulino – Suspended for 80 games for boldenone, an anabolic steroid.  I did some undercover work and found an expert and dealer in the forums on Muscle Talk dot com who told me, “Boldenone adds muscle mass and you will be a GOAT like the historically veterinary steroid used to treat.  If you take it, Gary Allright, I promise that you will enduce (sic) erections in men and women — your choice.  I will also throw in a leopard skin speedo to show off your new bod if you buy from me.”  I’m like Vice News over here!

Carlos Correa – 4-for-5, 3 RBIs, hitting .319.  Out of curiosity, I’d like to see if Correa tries to steal a base if a team pulls their catcher.

Yulieski Gurriel – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, and his 2nd homer in as many games.  Hot schmotato alert!

Jonathan Lucroy – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs, hitting .263.  Rangers said they’re open to trading Lucroy.  These updates slay me.  The Rangers are open to trading one of the biggest busts of the year?  No way!  The Indians, who Lucroy declined being traded to last year, should announce they’re declining considering trading for Lucroy.  Gerunds be damned, that makes sense!

Matt Bush – 1 IP, 0 ER in 8th inning as the Rangers go the committee route on Bush.  Wouldn’t that mean, they’re going with closer by ménage à trois?  Ménage à SAGNOF?  Bush is less effed than when he almost killed a man, but Comeback Player of the Year is in more jeopardy.  Keone Kela, Jason Grilli (recently traded for), Jose Leclerc and Alex Claudio will be in the mix for saves, in that order.  I’d go as deep as Grilli and Leclerc, because Kela, the obvious choice, is dealing with a sore shoulder.  Yesterday, Leclerc blew the save (1 IP, 2 ER).  Figures LeClerc would want to help out the White Sox on the diamond.  Though, usually I see his name spelled, de Klerk.

Cole Hamels – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.12.  He’s all name value and getting by on good vibes and bad farts.

Mike Napoli – 1-for-4 and his 16th homer, 2nd homer in as many games, and, in the last week, honestly, nothing.  I checked.

Jose Quintana – 4 1/3 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 4.45 vs. Tyson Ross – 5 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 6.41.  This was a matchup billed as, “You should gloat less when you draft guys in March.”

Melky Cabrera – 1-for-2, 2 runs and his 9th homer, hitting .285, and near-.350 in the last week.  The Melk Man could be a light schmotato, and your father.

Jose Ramirez – 3-for-4, 4 runs, 4 RBIs and his 14th and 15th homer, hitting .325, and three homers in the last two games.  He homered from both sides of the plate yesterday with two barely-out-of-there, wall-scrappers.  Hey, they count, right?  They do, it’s not a trick question.

Mike Clevinger – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners (5 BBs), 7 Ks, ERA at 3.33.  I’ll admit it’s slightly ludicrous to say Clevinger is a streamer when his ERA is better than 98% of the MLB.

Justin Verlander – 3 1/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA up to 4.96.  Wow, he’s useless.  I thought he already reinvented himself.  Can a person keep reinventing themselves?  I mean, besides Mark Wahlberg.

Nick Castellanos – 1-for-4m 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .247.  I’ll meet you at the corner of Exit Velocity and Launch Angle.  Zip code is 9021-ohbombski!

Xander Bogaerts – Scratched yesterday because of his groin.  TMI!

Hanley Ramirez – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 12th homer, hitting over .400 in the last week with three homers in the last ten days.  Every year, without hashtag fail, Hanley manages to get hot for a month and makes his season-long stats digestible.  Knowing this schmohawk, he’s going to spend a week of his hot streak sitting during the All-Star break.  Behind the scenes at Razzball HQ, I’m busy doing the top 100 for the 2nd half which will be posted next week during the ASB, and I don’t think there’s any way Hanley makes it, but he’s the type that could be the best hitter for a month.

Mookie Betts – 4-for-6, 3 runs, 8 RBIs and a double slam (14, 15) and legs (15), hitting .286.  Mookie Best!

Drew Pomeranz – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.64.  He’s one of the rare pitchers who is doing better in away games, and I’m not surprised.  Pomeranz’s value took an iceberg-right-ahead-sized hit when he went to Fenway.

Michael Conforto – Hit the DL with a bruised hand.  About time, that thing was bruised last Sunday.  While I want to believe Conforto will be fine in less than a week when his DL stint is up, but I get the sense the Mets are going to reveal Conforto has a broken hand around the time he’s due back.

Zack Wheeler – 3 2/3 IP, 0 ER as he was activated from the DL.  Though, with a start under four innings, I’m kinda expecting to hear any moment now he’s still hurt.

Nick Pivetta – 7 IP, 1 ER, 1 Hit, 4 BBs, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.85.  P. Ralph gave you his Pivetta fantasy not that long ago.  For no other reason, you should look at those GIFs.  Doode can throw, even if the results have been iffy at best.

Sam Dyson – 1 IP, 0 ER and the save on Saturday, and 1-2-3 on Sunday for his 2nd save with San Fran.  Blessed thee Saturday Evening Post’s art and Fathers who play fantasy, for I have sinned.  I picked up Sam Dyson for saves.  Please, Fantasy Baseball Overlord, tell me how many Hail Marys I need to throw or how many Sammy Sosa signs of the crosses-points to heavens I need to do.

Brandon Belt – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 16th homer, and 2nd homer this weekend.  Any ideas what he’s hitting?  Threw me for a loop, which might be oddly appropriate with Belt.  He’s hitting .235.  Damn.

Starling Marte – Began a rehab assignment.  Realness:  do players who are suspended for taking PEDs need to complete some kind of substance abuse program, and, if not, shouldn’t they?

John Jaso – 2-for-4 and his 7th homer as he hit third.  No, not third after six men had already come to the plate, though that makes more sense to me.

Ian Happ – 3-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 11th and 12th homers.  What’s the Happ’s?  Home runs, dawg!

Anthony Rizzo – 1-for-4 and his 19th homer.  HR to the Rizzo!

Jake Arrieta – 7 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners (1 Hit), 6 Ks, ERA at 4.33.  Not to be that guy, though I’m as much that guy as William Fichtner, Arrieta has his worst xFIP since his ’14 breakout and has diminished velocity.  This great start might be the chance you need to sell him.

Manuel Margot – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, and 4 steals in the last week.  Nope, no idea why you’re waiting to pick him up.  Fear of success?  That’s what your dad would tell us.

Kenta Maeda – 3 2/3 IP, 5 ER vs. the Padres.  C’mon, Dodgers, make up a good injury for Maeda.  How about gout?  No one under the age of 80 knows what that is.

Dylan Bundy – 4 IP, 5 ER, ERA up to 4.02.  Bundy’s doing the slow perp walk to a 4.75 ERA.

Kevin Gausman – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 5.61, but two relatively decent starts in a row.  Conspiracy Theory Alert!  What if Bundy is the proverbial butterfly and the tsunami in Southeast Asia is Gausman?  Though, that might’ve been more believable with King Kong Bundy dropping a splash.  As for fantasy, I still don’t trust Gausman at all, but his next matchup isn’t exactly the 1927 Yanks.

Mark Trumbo – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 12th homer, hitting .253.  He’s so overdue I’m beginning to wonder if he’s ever gonna birth a home run streak or if I should adopt a new Mancini.

Manny Machado – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 16th homer, hitting .217.  On our Player Rater, Odor has been better than Machado.  I know this is a bit like, “Hey, that turd is prettier than that barf,” but there ya go.

Michael Wacha – 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.16.  This start was in Busch (hehe) and Stream-o-Nator liked it (barely), but what I really want to talk about is his opponent, Gio Gonzalez – 7 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.77.  Sure, he’s walking between raindrops a bit and not getting wet, but I wish I had a few more Gios and few less, “Man, Cueto should be so much better than he is.”

Trevor Rosenthal – 2/3 IP, 1 ER and the almost blown save on Saturday.  Cardinals fans, “Rosenthal is so bad, why would we use him to close?”  Cardinals point to bullpen.  Fans, “Oh.”

Carlos Martinez – 5 IP, 5 ER, ERA up to 3.15.  “I only need a Quality Start from C-Mart in the last game of the week to win my H2H matchup,” said the prematurely balding man two hours before he was found at the bottom of a bowl of Flaming Hot Cheetos muttering to himself.

Tommy Pham – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .283.  He has three steals this week and is hitting around .300 in that time, while hitting out of the two hole.  It’s about a week beyond the point when Pham should be owned, so, of course, he’s owned in only 13% of leagues.

Bryce Harper – 3-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 19th and 20th homer, hitting .318.  I will say this for Harper.  For spells, he gets even H-O-T-T-E-R than Trout, but he also gets colder than some guys you don’t even want to own.  His June, for unstints, was not great.

Max Scherzer – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 1.94.  When we record our podcast today, I’m gonna ask Halp if we can use SeatGeek to get tickets for me to see Kershaw vs. Scherzer in the final round of the NL playoffs.  Using sponsor code, RazzMLB, of course.

Julio Teheran – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners (4 BBs), 8 Ks, ERA at 5.14.  Lowercase yay!  Do it at least two more times in a row and I’ll check back in.

Kurt Suzuki – 2-for-5 and two home runs (5, 6), because 2017, man.

R.A. Dickey – 6 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.44, though he does have three straight Quality Starts.  I appreciate that a knuckleballer is named Dickey, but I can appreciate it from afar and not pick him up in fantasy.

Marcus Semien – Sticking with the Dickey theme, Semien is due back this week.

Sean Manaea – 7 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.75.  Fun fact!  Afa and Sika love Manaea, but wish he were more wild.

Ryon Healy – Left yesterday’s game with back spasms.  Shouldn’t be long for Healy to, uh, heal.

Yasmany Tomas – Won’t be back any time soon after having a setback with his groin.  Hope he didn’t get it caught in a door.  That’s no fun!

A.J. Pollock – Says he might be back Tuesday.  Hopefully this Pollock means this Tuesday.

Taijuan Walker – 7 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.30.  Damn, I was thisclose to streaming Taijuan, and, now that I see his season ERA, I realize how stupid it is that he was not only on waivers, but that I dropped him.  #firstplaceproblems

Chris Owings – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer, and 3rd homer this weekend.  I still get questions about Owings.  He is top 5 for the entire major leagues on our Player Rater for shortstops, above Corey Seager, Bogaerts and Lindor, to name a few, and Kinsler, to name a Jew.

Eric Thames – 1-for-2, 2 runs and his 21st homer, hitting .243.  How does this fit into the narrative that he only hits homers vs. the Reds?  Ooh, ooh, I know!  He hit the home run against the Miami Marlins, and there’s a lot of Cubans in Miami and Cuba is a Communist island filled with Reds!  I didn’t even have to work very hard to jam that square peg in a round hole.

Orlando Arcia – 2-for-4 and his 8th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games, and I’ve been telling you to pick him up for about a week.  If you take nothing else from this post, grab Arcia.

Marcell Ozuna – 3-for-6, 4 RBIs and his 21st and 22nd homers.  OZUNA say goodbye to number one then number two.  OZUNA always politely wave goodbye after flushing toilet.

Dan Straily – 6 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.51.  Same exact sentiments as what I said above for Clevinger.  I mean, really, you can’t find one starter to lose for Straily?

Rich Hill – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 4.00.  If you own Hill, and I would, I wouldn’t celebrate to loudly.  Loud celebrations have been known to cause blisters.

Whit Merrifield – 3-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI and 3 steals (9, 10, 11), hitting .286.  Hitting near-.225 in last week with mostly bupkis, to Whit.

Jose Berrios – 5 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.44.  Be a real shame if Berrios ends up with a 4+ ERA after starting so well, but A) I don’t own him. B) Everyone has a 4+ ERA. C) There’s no C.

James Paxton – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.27.  Wow, least manic start I can remember from Paxton.  Not crazy good or crazy bad, just normal.  Paxton must’ve taken his Paxil.

Bud Norris – 1 IP, 0 ER in the 7th inning of a losing game, as he was activated from the DL.  This is funny:  I couldn’t have been more anti-Norris when he first got the Angels’ closer job, but now I’m actually rooting for him to get it back because I dropped Street and own Norris.  Okay, not haha funny.

Ricky Nolasco – 9 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.42.  On one summer night in 2017, Nolasco’s eight years of outperforming his peripherals came to a sudden halt like Cash Cab when you get a question wrong.  Ooh, TV show idea!  Cash Cab meets Taxi Cab Confessions.  Very simply:  you ask trivia questions of drunk people in Vegas.  “What is the device used to remove varnish called?  Hint:  it’s sitting next to you in seven-inch heels.”

2B and SS are my weak spots thus far, with Kipnis and Machado underperforming. Machado I think I just have to hope figures it out, but my impression is you’ve been pretty down on Kipnis all year–any hope of him turning it on? The counting stats aren’t the worst but the average and OPS are killing me (6×6 12 team roto 3 keepers).

Followup: If I can trade Kipnis and a draft pick to get Owings (to ask a question on Owings…) from a team that is out of contention, should I, and if so how high a draft pick is he worth?

PS Odor just hit a HR, so there’s that for ya.

Loved the write-up.

a. This is a bit of a long shot but will take it no matter! Got stuck in Don Ameche today. Tried to get back to Farchana, USA but failed. There were a million reasons why I guess. I guess (stutterer) it’s because of the hazy clouds in this period RIGHT BEFORE the rainy season. I digress.

b. Still Monday in continental USA, so…..

John Rambo Quote of the day for July 3

AirOps (at command HQ): ‘AWACS 25 has arrived. Holding time line. – Insertion minus one.

Ericson: ‘- Affirmative, Wolf Den. Over.’

Ericson (to Rambo): ‘Back in the badlands, my man.’

AirOps: ‘Stand by your position. Insertion minus 15 seconds.

MP: ‘Party time.’

Ericson: ‘Five seconds. 4, 3, 2… Jumper away.’

[Rambo gets stuck jumping out of the plane.]

Ericson (to MP): ‘- What’s happening?’

MP: ‘- Turbulence! He’s hung up! He’ll be torn apart.’

Ericson (to command HQ), with Murdock taking over: ‘Condition red. He’s hung up.’

Murdock: ‘- What? – What happened?’

Ericson: ‘He’s being dragged.’

Ericson (to the MP): ‘- Lifer, cut him loose.’

MP: ‘- I can’t free him!’

Murdock: ‘- Ericson, abort mission. Pull out.’

Ericson: ‘- He’ll be torn apart.’

MP: ‘He’s cutting away his equipment. He’s out!

Colonel Trautman: ‘Company do you read? This is Dragonfly 1. Do you read? Over.’

Ericson: ‘Dragonfly 1, come in. I read you.’

Colonel Trautman: ‘- Any visual by flares?’

Ericson: ‘- Negative. We didn’t see anything.’

Murdock: ‘Maybe it’s smart to abort before there’s any more complications. Who could have survived that?’

Colonel Trautman: ‘He deserves the benefit of the doubt. He’s got 36 hours to complete the mission and reach the extraction point. – We owe him that.’

Murdock: ‘- Well, of course we do. But understand something now. In 36 hours, we pull out.’

Cheers,
Ante

@Grey: Grey!

Thanks, man!

a. Was worried too. My teams (all of them, including the CBS H2H leagues and both of the RCL teams) are doing pretty badly.

1. The RCL team that auto-drafted Kershaw first overall (there were bad autobot picks like Porcello etc) has almost passed the RCL team where I drafted Springer, Machado, Story, Darvish and Greg Holland (20th round) in value.

2. In the CBS leagues, guys are pulling out all the stops like in one league a guy actually has 13 starts this week versus my 9 starts and 2 closers. At some point, most likely end-July and all of August the strategy of starting pitchers in the RP will flame out, I hope! It’s been brutal rostering Holland and Chapman (tough spot for him last week, still he has 3+ERA (no bueno), a 1.24 WHIP (also no bueno)) and Osuna also looks as flaky as an Erik Estrada Head and Shoulders dandruff commercial.

b. Funny story…Our plane was unable to land with his first approach to Don Ameche International airport today because of……wait for it…….cows coming home from their day of munching and looking for water. Thankfully the engineer put in an extra gallon of gas in the plane.

It reminds of the Turkish Airlines 737 flight from Antalya to Amsterdam (think it was in 2009 or 2010). The pilot had to crash land in a field about 20 miles from the Schipol airport because:

1. They were missing less than 2 gallons of fuel!!! Engineer died in the crash but would have committed harikiri if it was announced at the press conference that it was his error that caused the plane to crash land.

2. The pilot in his wisdom tried to crash land in a soft field near the airport. Bungled it…The nose and cockpit landed first killing the pilot and his crew and the first 5 rows of the business class. An immediate reaction to going in nose first was for the tail to land second killing everyone from like row 45 to the end. Everyone in between was more or less safe. So, sit next to the wing is good advice also don’t fly Turkish Airlines if possible.

Cheers,
Ante

@Grey: Grey!

We had a good one. Canada celebrated its 150th year of independence, though it’s tough to say we are ‘independent’!

a. The Queen still appears on all of our currency – bills and coins! All.

b. She appoints a Governor-General, whose pay scale is just below that of the Prime Minister (the leader of the country). The Governor-General opens the parliament and……that’s all folks!!!

c. She also appoints a Lieutenant Governor-General to open each provinces and territories’ provincial parliaments!!! So, yeah! We’re real independent!

d. Actually we celebrate July 1, 1867 as our independence. This is a misnomer. We were still a part of the UK until July 1, 1967! So, 50 years of independence. Not good!

e. Lastly, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a speech where he lamented about the status of our indigenous people (the nation called First Nation). Sad, because there is nothing to on the reservation except drink, smuggle cigarettes, get pregnant early and not go to school. All great ways to kill a nation!

same 14 teamer h2h with OPS, QS, holds, total bases with 9 keepers per year, 2 OF, 2 SP, 2 RP, and 3 differing hitting positions (not a 3rd or more OF). espn eligibility, but if somebody has multiple positions you get to use the one you want.
C zunino
1B GOLDY
2B SCHOOP (probably a keeper right now)
3B longo
SS arcia (i’m glad i have him when he got hot i had been moving from him to iglesias and somebody else numerous times before that, started year with miller)
CI pujols
MI pirela
LF braun
CF zimmer
RF STANTON
OF pham
util m.taylor
dyson/flowers/valencia (it’s 12 max pitcher starts per week here so 8 max 9 is really the most you’d need)
DL pollock
meaning one of braun/pollock/pham/zimmer/taylor are a keeper right now and one of longo/arcia, which are pretty weak hitting keepers. meanwhile
SP darvish/paxton/wood/duffy/hill/mccarthy/faria/straily/gio G
RP (room for 5) kimbrel/holland/hand/koji/baez (used to have a 3rd closer but i’m doing better having a better chance at holds and letting kimbrel/holland often win me saves anyway, as some owners have a LOT of closers, but no holds guys, others nearly none of either as they use up their BN slots with like 6 bats)

1. hosmer guy ain’t moving, he offered delgado/davies/hosmer for my pujols/duffy/hill. those two are at best streamers in this league. however, what do you think about that one? i cannot keep hosmer (from goldy) nor can i keep duffy the way wood/paxton are going. pitchers in FA are pretty weak. i offered back hill + pujols or duffy + pujols for hosmer, he ain’t doing those

2. bregman owner will do faria for bregman, trying to figure whether this one is doable whether or not i’d keep bregman. pujols other than somehow getting RBI’s when he somehow falls into hits is just junk. his BB’s are even gone now it’s getting gross. there were SOOOO many CI i could’ve added for maybe months but i was constantly in my head “pujols will come around”

@jason batteiger: oh yeah the impetus to trade one SP was originally from
1. mccarthy/duffy coming off DL slots and only room for one (suppose i could drop flowers)

but then i notice
2. my stats in the standings are a LOT better in pitching than hitting
and
3. my keepers for hitting are way worse than SP, to the point where if i couldn’t trade predraft next year (i probably could actually accomplish that though) i’d have to drop duffy and even one of wood/paxton.

@Grey: if in #2 it “doesn’t sound great” that’s still a yes as to trading faria for bregman or no? unless you meant it doesn’t sound great to be thinking pujols will get better.

@Grey: wow, so my SP to hitter keeper ratio imbalance is so MF’ing awful that pretty much my 4th or 5th keeper pitcher (we only keep 2 again) faria, is better than probably even my 3rd out of 5 best hitter keepers. YUCKTASTIC. i’ll assume you’d say that duffy is a worse SP keeper than faria, but darvish/wood/paxton are better for sure.

Hey Grey.
I know cozart has had a career year
But the reds are being very cautious with him.
Is it worth picking up Arcia and dropping Cizart.
In a 12 team keeper league.
Or should I hold.

@Daze:

Arcia has more potential to be a keeper than Cozart…his breakout appears real (though I think all his HR are on the 1st or 2nd pitch so once pitchers figure that out, the HR could disappear).

12 teamer should probably acquire leclerc with only kela (DL slot) osuna/norris/land of the strick (saves only). drop meyer or chacin (SON has them somewhat close other than chacin’s SD home games). this of course might be greatly determined by what meyer does tonight of course i suppose. deep benches and i have 12 SP and 3 BN bats (some platooners and underperformers with chisenhall/story/d.peralta).

while not as good as your kluber/cougs routine from a week or so ago (yeah i’m behind baby) rotoworld’s guys (i used to years ago suspect jaywrong may have written for them (i’m way more sure that’s false now) turned in some good stuff here:

“Rosario came within a homer of the cycle, and he also drew a walk. As good as he’s been this year, Rosario did have some struggles in June, posting a .644 OPS for the month. Call it regression to the mean, boredom with the level or a combination of both. Rosario is ready to go, and it seems like everyone but the Mets agree. Unfortunately, they’re the only ones who have a say in this.”

10 team Yahoo H2H 7×7
R, H, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG
W, L, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, QS

After losing my 2nd week in a row (4-10… ouch!) and to a 6th place team made up of guys I’ve rostered and let go (J. Johnson, Miranda, Berrios, Faria… oh and he streamed Clevinger, Trevor Williams and Urena against me so that was fun to see) I’m pretty concerned with my team’s inability to win W’s, L’s, SBs, and Ratios! For the first time I lost in K’s (by 10 but he did have Sale…)

(1) C: Zunino
(1) 1B: Rizzo
(1) 2B: Odor
(1) SS: Lindor
(1) 3B: Rendon
(3) OF: Harper, Springer, Myers
(2) UT: Encarnacion, Abreu
(6) Bench: Peraza, Haniger

(3) SP: Carrasco, Severino, McCullers
(2) RP: Wilson, Knebel
(4) P: Betances, Nova, Walker, M. Montgomery
(6) Bench: Lynn, J. Gray, J. Ross, empty

(2) DL: A. Sanchez, Shoemaker

1) Anyway to improve my RP situation or make changes?
Available RPs: Neris, Dyson, Familia*, Neshek, Albers, Kela, Street, Strickland

2) Been trying to trade Haniger for a pitcher but no one will take him so I think it’s time to drop him… Any of these other bats worth owning as a bench bat instead of Peraza in that case assuming Haniger is cut into this free agent pool shortly… Almost picked up Hanley but he finally got scooped up…

Available Bats: C. Davis*, Inciarte, Gardner, Brantley, G. Polanco, Mazara, Belt, Maybin, Bregman, Broxton, D. Santana, Souza , J. Dyson

3) Just stashed Sanchez in the DL spot for now and I’ve been streaming out of multiple spots as you can see but not having any real luck with a weekly 6 add limit! I know most of the available guys below are “streamers” and “matchup based” but here are there any hidden gems that I should be rostering instead of streaming?

Available SPs: Bauer, Rodon, Ryu, A. Moore, Pivetta, Clevinger, Hoffman, Chacin, Folty, Lamet, M. Moore, Fiers, Hammel, Newcomb, Meyer, Gausman, JC Ramirez, Lugo, Roark, Garcia, Biagini, Cotton, Montero, T. Ross, Chavez…

Was already thinking of grabbing the guys with the following positive SON starts?

Bauer vs. SD (12.7)
Ryu vs. KC (13.7)
Pivetta vs. SD (5.4)
M. Moore vs. MIA (2.9)
A. Moore vs. OAK (1.3)

Hello again Grey,
Any chance my CMart, Bellinger and Maeda for Sale and throw ins (Lackey and Mancini who I will probably drop) is fair? The Sale Manager is looking for a bat.

It is a 12 Team H2H Keeper League, so I figure Bellinger would be a good Keeper next season. He’s going to say know and counter with my Harper, but I wanted to get your read on the offer.

Thanks much Grey and another happy fourth!

Would you look to buy low in Odor or are we letting that ship sail? He and Arrieta have about the same points total for the year in our league.
I’m holding Monconda for when he’s called up. I feel like the floor is about the same on those two with more upside on moncada.

A)You think Zimmer will do anything during the 2nd half or possibly blossom into a top 50-75 bat next season? (i know he’ll need to figure out lefties first, by mayyybe?)

B) You like Zimmer as a potential keeper above any of Arcia, Broxton, K. Seager?

Normally this should be an easy choice but I’m really struggling with it…..

Maybe I’ll be laughed at for considering this a dilemma but the last couple of weeks my offense has tightened up and I’m concerned I won’t be able to fill that hole. Especially w fragile miggy and Cruz.

Great content as usual, Grey. I notice that you are as brilliant with the first questions of the day as you are with the 393rd. I don’t how you do it…but I bow to such freakiness–and pep.

Tomorrow our Keeper League has its Mid-Season 1-player draft in which we can pick up any player in the Majors not already on one of our Fantasy rosters.

I’m currently in 2nd Place and could use Mid-Season help at SP (where my 4th and 5ths are: J. MUSGROVE, M. LEAKE, N. KARNS, JR GUERRA, and J. ODORIZZI) or OF (where my 3rd Of’er is either K. CALHOUN or L. CAin) or MR/backup CLOSERS.

Last year, I was also in 2nd at this time and chose, at the last minute, BRANDON McCARTHY instead of EDWIN DIAZ, my original target. I ended the season in 2nd.

Thus, with danger looming, I type out the equivalent of Commissioner Gordon’s BAT LIGHT in your direction and ask you to please tell me which one player from each category do you prefer and of those who do you like the best for my team?

SP: Zach GODLEY, Luis CASTILLO, Mike CLEVENGER

OF: Marwin GONZALEZ, Tommy PHAM, Michael TAYLOR, Aaron ALTHERR (or…Aaron Hicks?)

MR: Tommy KAHNLE, Archie BRADLEY

I’m trying to think this one through in Razzball-fashion but remain v. torn…so THANK YOU!!
