Greg Holland was pulled after walking two guys in a row on Wednesday night. Every pitch was a ball, but he got one foul ball to make it nine pitches. Yoan Lopez came in to clean it up. The DBacks have said there’s not an injury, but it’s worth monitoring either way. Here are some other notes from this week…

This week, in honor of Roto-Wan’s new kid, let’s use Star Wars films as our tier heading this week. The force is strong with these top arms. Will they choose the Dark Side or the Jedi though?

He has no real ‘lines’, but how can you go against a bot that helps instead of trolls on the internet. There when you need him, but don’t expect to have much of a conversation without a translator. How did Luke know how to talk droid?

Aroldis Chapman Adam Ottavino  Zach Britton  Chad Green
Felipe Vazquez Kyle Crick  Keone Kela
Kenley Jansen Pedro Baez  Joe Kelly  Julio Urias

Craig Kimbrel Steve Cishek  Pedro Strop  Brandon Kintzler
Liam Hendricks Yusmeiro Petit  Lou Trivino  Blake Treinen


An old friend that may turn on you, but is also a charismatic, smooth operator who shows up at the last second. And the Hahn back story film didn’t hurt his rep either.

It’s a crime that these insignificant, little creatures play such an important role in destroying the evil empire. They throw rocks and sticks and catch the empire completely unprepared. Sticks and stones over laser blasters and AT-ATs. GTFO…

Yes, I wrote this one in before I even finished my rankings. There’s no question who is the worst character in the entire Star Wars saga.

    Additional note: Edwin Diaz got hit in the foot by a come-backer last night. X-rays were negative and the Mets are hoping he avoided any kind of serious injury, but there may be some vulture save opps while he heals up.

    Hey Donkey,

    Just wanted to say keep up the good work. I love reading your/grey’s posts, and sharing them with everyone i know thats NOT in my fantasy leagues!

    We have literally dubbed your site the “sneaksters” becasue you guys are so good and predict prospects and the like so far ahead of time that we CANNOT let other people know about you all!
    (I know that kills your business model, but look at what it says about your content!)

    6 years in and this site is still the king.

      I”m not Donkey Teeth, but have passed along your nice words to him. I’m sure he’ll show up in here eventually. It’s always that double edged sword of keeping the great advise/information to yourself and us wanting to grow the site. If you wanna help out, but you also want to be selfish, you should check out Rudy’s tools. They’re that extra gem that take out so much prep time.

      • Razzy razzballin says:

        thats embarrassing… also maybe i have dyslexia! But your name is Don!!!! Always thought you were DT

        I love your content too man. Everything on here is gold

    How confident are you that it will be Munoz over Stammen when Yates is traded?

    • B_Don

      B_Don says:

      I believe it’s likely a shared job if Yates gets moved. I put Munoz 1st because he’s nasty and has been untouchable since coming up. Stammen has gotten the opportunities during the season when Yates needed a break, but that was mostly without Munoz around. To answer your question directly, I’d say about 65% Munoz to 35% Stammen.

    • B_Don

      B_Don says:
