Sign says, ‘Don’t stay away, fools,’ cause Cody Bellinger rules!  No?  Okay, go to sleep.  “Go to sleep” is my new favorite thing I say that my Cougar can’t stand.  She’s like, “Why are you excited?”  Rather than saying, “I’m excited because Cody Bellinger was called up,” I say, “Go to sleep.”  Is that bad?  I feel like her reaction is like the step before divorce.  “Baby, we’re good, go to sleep.”  “It’s 4 o’clock on a Tuesday.”  “Yeah, go to sleep.”  And then we’re divorced.  You know who isn’t divorced?  Cody Bellinger!  Okay, I’m talking crazy, but I’m excited, you get it.   In 18 games of Triple-A, he was hitting .343 with five homers and seven steals.  I will now cackle maniacally.  Who is this guy, Justice Eric Ruth Thames but with speed?  I can’t even.  *puts handkerchief to forehead, and faints*  Oh, thank you for catching me in my dream state, Giancarlo.  This is funny (not funny), Bellinger had three homers last year in Triple-A.  Guess how many games?  Oh, three.  Three games!  I wanna project him over five months for 17 HRs, 20 SBs, and .280, but feel like that is too conservative, that’s how crazy I am for him.  Yes, you should absolutely grab him.  Where will he play when Pederson returns from the DL?  Not sure, but worth grabbing him now to see how the Dodgers handle it.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Madison Bumgarner – Doesn’t need shoulder surgery.  He also received a participation trophy from the BMX 3000, ages 12-30.  Good week overall.

Ty Blach – 5 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 4.22.  Bumgarner’s replacement — Bumblach?  Sounds like a nudist’s suntan lotion. — is fine for NL-Only leagues, but I’d rely on Stream-o-Nator for Blach in mixed leagues.

Brandon Crawford – Might need a DL after leaving the game with a groin strain.  Eduardo Nunez covered for him.  At short, not at groin.

Gerrit Cole – 7 IP, 0 ER, 2 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.60.  He’s totally trolling you now.  You know that, right?  You’re being trolled.  “Ooh, tough matchup vs. the Cubs, yeah, I’m gonna bench Cole.”  And now you’ve been trolled.  It’s not trolling, it’s Coling.  That’s what Gerrit does.

Kyle Hendricks – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.50.  I don’t buy that he’s suddenly back after his first three starts were less than spectacular.  This is like 1999 Woodstock.  Hendrix looked good, but it was on a Diamond Vision screen and he’s been gone for 25 years.

Pablo Sandoval – Hit the DL with a knee sprain.  The fantasy baseballer (<–my mom’s term!) who once again drafted Sandoval this year, because of some dieting-slash-best shape of his life narrative that they believed is writing an autobiography called, “From Kung Fu Panda to FU Panda.”

David Price – Will face live hitters on Saturday.  “So we brought our bats for nothing?”  That’s the zombie hitters that were hoping to take some cuts.

Matt Carpenter – Suspended one game for bumping an ump.  He didn’t appeal the ruling because what was the suspension going to be reduced to?  He had to sit out innings four thru seven?

Michael Wacha – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.55.  Next year, I’m just gonna have a tier of starters to draft called, “Cardinals starters, grab one.”

Roberto Osuna – 1 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 5.40.  I don’t want to scream fire in the theater of Razzball, but Osuna has not looked right all year.

Aaron Sanchez – Threw a 30-pitch bullpen session as he works his way back from a blister.  Sanchez said he felt fine, then Rich Hill tried to Facetime with him, and Sanchez refused the call while snickering to himself, “Sorry, no wifi.”

Rajai Davis – Hit the Disgraceful List.  Aw, man, the King of SAGNOF has been so bad this year, I kinda thought he retired.  Filling in for Rajai will be Jaff Decker, Matt Joyce, Adam Rosales, Josh Phegley–Holy Allah Mecca, what happened to the A’s team?

Kendall Graveman – Will start Thursday, reporting no discomfort after throwing a side session on Monday.  That’s called a side sesh.  It’s like a side piece but it doesn’t ask you why you can’t give her one weekend night.  “Baby, I’m going to Six Flags on Saturday with my BM and the kids, you know that.”

Jesse Hahn – 8 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.08.  The Regression Fairies were out in full force yesterday, but they obviously didn’t ‘talk to the Hahn.’  My guess is they will pay him a visit soon.  His 6.9 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 don’t coalesce as a 2.08 ERA pitcher, but more like one with a 4.00 ERA.

Santiago Casilla – 1 IP, 1 ER and his first blown save. Didn’t wanna be a naysayer, a total sayer of nay, but I’m surprised Casilla lasted this long looking decent.  Let’s not forget the Giants wanted him gone for the last three years.  Oh, and Doolittle isn’t that good either, but might have the inside track on the closer job now.

Mark Reynolds – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer.  Legit, he’s my best hitter on a few of my teams.  So, when you go back to preseason and you’re like, “Grey dog, look at my team, and tell me whatcha think of this ting — I’m Jamaican I say tings.”  Like William Goldman once said about Hollywood, no one knows anything.

Anthony Rendon – 1-for-4, 1 run as the Nats scored 15 runs in Coors.  I’d say ticker tease, but it’s been more like a ticker season for Rendon.  C’mon, schmohawk, get your shizz together.

Koda Glover – 1 IP, 2 ER.  With a ten-run lead in Coors, Dusty pitched Glover in the 7th inning.  I’ll forgive a lot, but this is uneffinforgivable.  Like a real snowflake, I’m about to start a petition at Move On dot org to fire Dusty.

Trea Turner – 4-for-6, 4 runs, 7 RBIs and his 1st homer, as he hit for the cycle.  This is the 2nd cycle in Coors this year.  Coors and cycles go together, and not because if you’re drinking Coors and riding a cycle it’s probably because you have at least two DUIs.

Paul Goldschmidt – 4-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer.  Au Shizz!

Patrick Corbin – 7 IP, 2 ER, 10 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.10.  Hey, I like him, but this was vs. the 1927 Padres.  In 1927, Padres were not hitting, they were taking confession from Nucky Thompson.

Jabari Blash – 1-for-2 and his 1st homer.  It’s like spring training all over again!  With Jankowski on the DL, Blash will be seeing playing time for the next two weeks.  I haven’t grabbed him in mixed leagues yet, but am looking to make a Blash in NL-Only leagues.

Jean Segura – 3-for-6, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer, as he was activated from the DL.  Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “Been going around the office that I farted into the break room refrigerator then shut the door real fast for some poor unsuspecting dupe.  This is fake news.”

Felix Hernandez – 2 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.73, and left with a dead arm.  More votes for the Hall of Fame if F-Her plays another seven years or if he retires abruptly in June?  Serious question.  I’m going with abruptly in June.

Mitch Haniger – Diagnosed with a strained oblique.  Oh, no, he’s got Mat Gamelitis.  This is a disease that strikes prospects who are way past the point of breaking out, then, when they finally break out, they get injured repeatedly.  There’s no cure.  Haniger could be out for three to four weeks.  Taylor Motter’s like, “Yo, I got this,” then Danny Valencia’s like, “You don’t need to play two positions, I’m here,” and everyone is like, “Danny who?”

Danny Valencia – 2-for-2, 2 runs and his 1st homer.  Danny who again?  So, Valencia will play while Haniger is out, and there might be something here if Valencia gets hot.  Will Valencia be Awesometown?  I doubt it.

Kyle Seager – Said his sore hip feels fine.  He also said, “I’m not 80 years old.”

Alex Avila – 3-for-5, 3 runs and his 4th homer, hitting .407.  Also, in this game, James McCann (2-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs, hitting .178) hit his 5th homer.  Tigers’ catchers 9 homers; Red Sox team 11 homers.  Oh, screw you baseball and your goofy nonsense!

Justin Upton – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .294.  If this is his April, I feel bad for his owners in May and June.  His bad always catches up to his good and vice versa.

Ian Kinsler – 4-for-5, 4 runs, 2 RBIs, hitting .262.  The Tigers scored 19 runs last night, which seems excessive.  Surprised Kinsler didn’t step in and tell the team it’s very Latino to emote with so many runs.

Jose Altuve – Collided with Teoscar Hernandez and that little man is packed tightly, because, damn, they hit hard and Altuve walked away under his own power.  Low center of gravity meets normal-sized man, and normal-sized man leaves on a cart.  Altuve doesn’t even have a concussion and says he’ll play today.  Okay, Altuve is not a man, he is a sock filled with quarters.

Dallas Keuchel – 9 IP, 2 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 1.22.  He really didn’t need to throw 117 pitches yesterday, but moving past that.  If you didn’t see the previous blurb I had on Keuchel, I’m back in.  We’re good.  Him and I?  We made up from his previous year disaster.  I think of Keuchel as a top 25 starter again.  Would I trade for him?  Sure, but it’s hard to get a good deal on a pitcher that is throwing a 1-something ERA.

Michael Brantley – 1-for-4 and his 4th homer, hitting .306.  Can’t totally argue with the results so far, but I’m less impressed with Brantley than maybe his stats so far deserve.  I think he’s still a sneeze away from a strained oblique, and it’s allergy season.

Todd Frazier – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 3 RBIs, hitting .156.  Yes, he’s been awful, but he’s also the type to get smoking hot, so now is not the time to be benching him.

Avisail Garcia – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .380.  When you’re hot for a third straight week, you’re talking in sexy whispers on my earlobes.

Danny Duffy – 4 2/3 IP, 6 ER.  Since my sell on Duffy, his ERA is one million.

Mike Moustakas – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 7th homer.  “We have one legitimate power hitter in our lineup.  Let’s hit him leadoff,” said no one ever with any common sense.

Zach Britton – Will start rehab assignment on Friday.  Britton said, “I’m going bloody barmy and want to throw the bollocks out the cricket ball, Bob’s your uncle!”  (All in a bad British accent.)

Wade Miley – 7 IP, 2 ER, 10 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.08.  Here’s me 1st three weeks of the season, “I am not starting Amir Garrett, Wade Miley or Jhoulys Chacin on my NFBC team.”  Here’s me this week, “I’ve wandered into the Blue Oyster Bar, drinks are cheap and The Regression Fairies just put a Selena Gomez song on the jukebox.  Let’s dance!”  Thankfully, Miley at least called me an Uber the next morning.

Erasmo Ramirez – Scratched from his start because of inclement weather.  Erasmo can’t get wet?  Hmm… Conspiracy Theory Alert!  Erasmo is one of those pills you put into water that turns into a dinosaur.  “Egads, it’s a Ramirasaurus!

Ervin Santana – 7 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 0.77.  How does he keep avoiding the Regression Fairies?  It must be his pre-game ritual of Chuck Norris movies and talking about Fallout 3.

Kennys Vargas – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 1st homer.  Only thing standing between him and playing time is Robbie Grossman, and, he’s, well, gross, man.  Kennys, all of them, tend to get hot, so there might be something here.

Byron Buxton – 2-for-3, 1 run, 1 RBI, 2nd steal and no strikeouts!  Oh em gee, a positive Buxton update!  You better believe I’m cyclops’ing him.

Joey Gallo – 1-for-3 and his 7th homer, hitting .224.  I’d get McDreamy-eyed on Gallo if he could hit maybe 25 points higher.  I do like him though, because I’m a girl for the long ball.  No offense to girls or old men with long balls.

Keon Broxton – 1-for-2, 2 runs, 2 BBs and 2 steals (4, 5), hitting .172.  You gotta walk before you run.  Literally and figuratively.

Hernan Perez – 3-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  And now the Brewers can’t sit Perez anymore.  Here we go, Cousin Sweatpants, we got a hot schmotato.

Eric Thames – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer, hitting .371.  Justice Eric Ruth Thames aka Jeru the Damaja aka King Kunta aka Beast Style aka Move Over Bonds On Baseball’s Rushmore aka I Sat Out Yesterday And My Well-Groomed Beard Hit That Home Run strikes again.  The year is 1 AK, After Korea, and our Lord and Savior said, “Betwixt innings I bathe with a harem of exotic-looking women who are from Madison, Wisconsin, because I am Eric Thames.  Goodnight.”

        Agree considering career numbers, but he has pitched fairly well past 3 season, mostly in the bullpen, but throws hard and apparently developed a decent curve.

        I know he was a high prospect once but wanting more info. What I saw was domination. His slider look nice and his curve looks acceptable, but I am not a scout so…..

    This war of attrition on my team is really starting to take its toll, 8 trips to the DL for my team already. I had been riding some of those guys on the bench thanks to the new 10-day DL. With Haniger likely out for about a month I’d rather stash him and open up a bench spot. My only questionable DL spots are Jon Gray and Rich Hill. Would drop either of those guys or ride it out for a little bit since its early in the season?

  18. Mikael Franco sucks as well as Velazquez. deep league 14 teams nothing happening on the waiver wire. Would you drop either guy to have more streaming options? Or even drop them out of spite for effing up your counting stats

    Hi Grey!

    Superb writeup, sir.

    Drop Mazuzah (who is like 2 for 32 since last week with just 1 RBI — not good) for Bellinger for my UTIL?

    I kind of like the youthful enthusiasm to spark my team and if Mazuzah starts to hit again I can probably re-add.

    Seems sensible?

    Are the fantasy gods punishing me and laughing as I finally dropped Buxton in the last of the 3 leagues I owned him in? ( saved Sterling PED in a keeper league instead )

    I’ve stayed true to Buxton these difficult weeks in my keeper league (thanks to a deep bench), while the Josh Bells and Tommy Josephs have been cast out. Don’t make a liar out of me, Brian!

    I watched his at bats last night, and he actually looked like a major league baseball player. Not getting my hopes up yet.

    • Jon Gray's Broken Toe says:

      I agree … His previous four games didnt have the same results as last night, but taking several walks is a good sign … i think he is trying to be more patient this last week and it started paying off last night

    Greetings grey!

    H2h pts weekly lock league

    Drop Manuel Margot to add Cody Bellinger?

    My OFs are (we start 4) Harper, cespedes, schwarber, benintendi.

    My utility slots are Souza & judge .

    My bench: javy Baez, cozart, Margot, conforto, Todd Frazier, Pedroia.

    My IF slot is currently Jose abreu

    My 1b slot (Bellinger is 1b) is Carlos Santana who’s also eligible at DH & my DH is Sano

    My 3b this week is castellanos, I benched Frazier due to him battling the flu last week & slumping but Go figure now he’s on my bench he’ll go off

    I also have drury eligibility is at 2b/OF & 3b he’s at 2b this week I thought it would be too risky with starting Pedroia in this weekly league.

    Thanks grey!

    Next; would you hang onto or drop javy Baez for gyorko? Gyorko is eligible at SS, 2b & 3b same as Baez

  31. Slimcompoop says:

    What’s good Grey. Dexter Fowler is killing my OF in my OBP league and Kepler, Conforto, and Pence are all sitting out there on the waiver wire. Career stats says Fowler bounces back, but would you make the switch for any of the three listed above? Thanks for the write-up.

    Got a trade offer of J. Turner + B. Maurer for Duffy in a 12-team mixed points league. Could use the extra closer and Turner would fill my 3B slot (currently occupied by Hernan Perez) until Beltre gets back. However, once Beltre returns I’d have him, Turner, Rizzo, Reynolds, and Pujols as corner men, with only four spots available in my lineup. Guess I could always flip one of them later.

    Current SPs besides Duffy are Darvish, Salazar, McCullers, Nova, Severino, Velasquez.

    My infield is a mess. Please pick two to sit- Encarnacion, Odor, Turner, Motter, Gyorko, Miller, Gurriel, ToJo. I have listed them in the order I would rank them. Agree?

    Any clue what the Dodgers projected starters look like for the next 7 days? Especially for Wood, Urias and Hill? ESPN, CBS and SON all disagree. I need to set my lineup for the next 7 days by noon, and 2-starts from Wood would (stutterer!) be nice. ESPN has him listed for today and Tuesday, both against SF (nice). SON has him for today and Wednesday, but against SF (only one start this week, not as nice, but both nice values on SON). And CBS doesn’t have him projected to start at all. Unknowns are when Hill gets a start (Monday, maybe) and whether Urias gets a second start (Tuesday, maybe). HELP!!!!

    I just dropped Koda Glover for Sean Doolittle for my honorary speculative saves spot. I’m not sure why you think Doolittle isn’t that good, since he gets a crazy amount of strikeouts (14% K this year, 10% K last year) and doesn’t really walk anyone (1.3% BB this year, 1.9% BB last year).

    Also, I’m really suffering in every pitching category except for Ks, so I’m trying to shop Thames for a stud pitcher. Would you rather have Arrieta or Greinke?

    Also, stream Nola’s roster spot in a ten team shallow league with guys like Kennedy, Nova, and Graveman on the scrap heap?

      @Kevin b:

      Trea’s the better player and hitters are more predictable than pitchers so, in general, you’d want Trea.

      However.

      Trades should always be judged in context to your team needs. If you’ve got an abundance of speed and high BA guys, but you’re getting slaughtered in ERA and Ks every week, then dealing Turner for Syndergaard makes sense for your team.

      They are both so young that keeper status should apply equally.

        @Hoboken Squat Cobblers: MR’s don’t really impact your #’s. Ross and Richards have 2-start weeks. Ya gotta make the play for K’s and W’s IMO. But yeah, sometimes it’s wiser to not a start a guy just because he’s getting a start. Managing ain’t easy!

        • Hoboken Squat Cobblers says:
          (link)

          @Cram It: Agreed. Always tough decisions for me. For unstints this week, I started Y Petit over Lackey, Chavez, Garrett, M Gonzalez, Hammel and Feldman. I figure I miss out on a few K’s and maybe a win but probability-wise, according to SON, I’m saving my ratios more. …Along these lines, I’d love to read more of the fantasy sit/start strategy aspect of your (and others) responses, especially for NFBC since its my highest payout league. But I guess, you all are competing against each other in those…so there is a need for discretion!

    Will have an open spot as soon as Haniger goes on the DL. Position is irrelevant. Who do I take from:

    Bellinger, Gallo, Dickerson, Reynolds, Owings, Suarez, Tomas, Heyward, Calhoun, Bregman

  72. Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:

    H2H keep 5 (OBP OPS). 12 teams but strangely shallow rosters in spots due to 3 OFs and a small bench you need to commit to SP streamers.

    My current OF is pretty stacked with Harper, Blackmon, Upton ($13 keeper), with Haniger ($4) as my bench bat and Dahl ($4) on the DL.

    I’m out of waivers for this week, but a genius just dropped Gregory Polanco ($23) to the wire. Although I’m very set on OF, I’ve gotta make room for that right?

    When my waivers open up again, I’m thinking of dropping Dahl, moving Haniger to DL, and grabbing Polanco or Bellinger ($5) if either are still there.

    Make sense?

    Thanks.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d drop Haniger for Polanco

    Grey,

    Awesome post as usual!

    I am lucky enough to have Bellinger in my keeper – but should I actually slot him in my lineup?

    Yasmany Tomas, Eugenio Suarez, Peralta, and Schoop are my UTIL right now.

    Should I bench 3 of these guys to put him in. How would you rank?

      Leave Bellinger on bench until he does something

    Good stuff Grey! Nothing worse than looking at the Yahoo app and see one of your starts whose 2/2 slapped with the “DTD” tag. Are Souza Jr, or Peralta either a good replacement for Haniger? I am probably going to have to drop him since I have Gray/Bedrosian on the DL.

    Someone dropped Frazier in my league, but like you said hes been fire for the past two games. Worth dropping anyone to grab him?

    NL-Only 10-Team H2H 5×5 w/ OBP

    I need to pick someone up to fill in for JOC. I already have Brinson in the lineup and not playing, and now Freese is dealing with a hamstring issue. Possible guys are Kike, Scooter, Osuna, Blash, Hansen, Jaso and Adonis. Which, if any, would you pick up for Freese/Phelps for? Would you possibly drop both Freese/Phelps for any of the two I listed (one being an OF)?

    Gallo looks like he could be a Chris Davis blue light special. He’s been smoking the ball this year (97.5 mph average exit velo – 2nd highest in MLB). Strikeouts are obviously still a problem though. .220/35/10 is still quite useful if you have a few .280+ hitters to balance him out.

    I agree that Hendricks looks like a sell. Velo is down and he’s missing fewer bats. Could end up with a 3.6 ERA and a 7-7.5 K/9, which would essentially be Ivan Nova. Meh.

    Thanks for the invite to Six Flags! I haven’t been in years. When are we going?

            @Grey: I agree with ctrengove. Gallo would likely be the primary backup at 3B and 1B and battle it out with Choo, Rua, and Profar for playing time at LF/DH. He’ll see ABs as long as he’s mashing.

            Went to Six Flags back in the day when they had just opened a new roller coaster. Forget what it was called, but by the time I went, it was already closed down due to an accidental death. I wanna go back!

    Hey Grey,

    Excellent daily update as usual.

    In a 10-team 6×6 keep forever roto league Bellinger has just hit waivers. I have all my £250 (they’re nearly the same as $ since Brexit) left, do I bid the whole lot to make sure I get Bellinger? Brinson is already owned due to different rules last year. Bellinger could sit on my bench for a while as we have reasonably deep benches and if he were NA’d again we have NA spots too. I’m basically saying I could keep him forever but it’d cost me all my FAAB to be sure. With it being 10 teams there are always options available on the WW.

    Another Dan

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Haha… I’d bid $202 and see what happens, assuming you don’t bid on regular waiver guys

    so the douchebag ARI team takes over 50 hours to apparently confirm that the Owlship (this is archie bradley and we’re getting WAY dork on this reference) ISN’T getting a job. this is an issue since in leagues of say 5-7 moves i literally added him in as many spots as possible. most/near all it’s obvious to drop (except holds leagues where it’s not so easy at all), or deep leagues. they couldn’t have just said this right after the damn game, really?

    NL only with holds. 10 team h2h. QS over wins league.
    RP (4 slots) neris/benoit/ramos/knebel
    SP -bradley/stressbird/dickey/lynn/conley/gio g/lackey/ray
    DL capps
    if these are best/only options for streaming purposes (7 moves per week) just hold Owlship here?
    options: ALL SD baseball team starters (cahill i just dropped from DL slot to add bradley), cain. blach,eflin, garza, nelson (also i just dropped as part of adding bradley), koehler, adleman/, feldman, rookie D, godley

    Looked into Motter more and liking what I see. He’s far up the chart on exit velocity and increased his launch angle. The knock is, he has some bad splits against left handers. Looking like he’ll have some more playing time. Do think he might just need some more at bats against lefties? If Conforto struggles this week against a series of righties, swap lottery tickets for Motter? The SS eligibility would be useful.

    Whatup Grey,

    For my 3 OF and 1 Utility spot on my team, I have Betts, Judge, Jackie Bradley, Trumbo, Carlos Santana, Kepler, and sometimes Peraza (if I play Tim Anderson at SS), so that often leaves me with two quality players on my bench.

    Would you trade Trumbo and Jackie Bradley for Thames?

    I offered Trumbo and JBJ for Thames and Nova, and expect to get it rejected, and that’s why Im asking above the above offer as a potential counter. Thanks as always.

    I have a question about my roster. I think we have too many benches in our league so thats why I have alot of hitters. Im in 3rd because I am last in average and obp since I played everyone every chance I had. I am also projecting to go over the inning limit, so more then five pitchers will help but I cant start them all. ITs a 13 team keeper league/acution so if I pick up a free agent I can keep him for $5. So I want a prospect but I also want to win.
    Should I go prospect? Meadows, Gsellmen, Sentazela, Brinson, Clint Frazier, Chad Greene, or Gioloto. Or am I going backwords, Hernan, Chriss Carter, Soler and Bedrosian are available.

    Hi Grey, great write up as always, and its greatly appreciated!

    So I’m holding on to three 1B only players and its costing me in terms of the free agents I wanted to pick up (i.e. hernan perez who I’ve now missed out on )

    who is worth holding on to or keeping? I’m in a 14 team keeper league.

    1. Mark Reynolds 2. Greg Bird 3. Tommy Joseph.

    Just traded C. Santana and Caesar Hernandez for Cueto in a 10 team ROS. Feeling good about it. Here’s where I’m at:

    I may have taken an OBP hit, but I’m hoping Segura’s return can make up for that. And eventually Rendon and Piscotty should pick it up.

    Plus, I get to pick up an FA (thinking Conforto) and/or have a pitcher stream

    C – Wieters
    1B – Moreland
    2B – Segura
    SS – Lindor
    3B – Rendon
    CI – H. Perez (picked up today)
    MI – Story
    OF – Trout, Cruz, Duvall, Braun, D. Peralta
    Util – Hosmer, Piscotty
    Bench – Piscotty

    SP – Cueto, Nova, McCullers, Manaea, McCarthy, Bundy, Urias, Severino

    RP – Giles, Kelley, Bush

    DL – Price, Haniger

    The Dentist leads off. 2 knocks and 2 bags. Are you with me!!!

    Your boy Nicolas Castellanos…have you talked much about him changing his name to his name? Also he leads the majors in hard hit ball percentage. Nearly 60%. Also the name change from Nick to Nicolas reminds me of the spring training where Jeff Leonard showed up and told everybody they had to call him Jeffrey. Well his nickname was Prison Face, so this one reported asked him if they’d have to call him Penitentiary Face. He was not amused.

    I was going to call Todd Frasier on a tear two days ago. He hit some loud outs a couple of days ago. Flu behind him. He’s going to regress to the Frasier mean.

    The kid who was throwing for the Angels last night has a live fastball. He was a heavy 98. JC Ramirez. Don’t think he really has a good idea how to pitch yet.

    It seems to me that I never have a share of the April Thames guy. It was Story last year. Always someone.

    Maybe Dusty is just playing “3D chess” with us?

    dicking around with the LAA bullpen, moving meadows out for brinson, and adding hernan cost me 4/5 of weekly moves. now in short term it might benefit me to
    1. stream one of
    ryu vs PHI (20.6)
    straily vs PIT (.2, but straily was insane good last time @ SD, pretty damn good vs the mess before that, proficient vs ATL before that)
    OR
    2. drop somebody (gomez i’d guess) for dave peralta (waiver claim, no guarantee i get him)
    3. lucroy waiver claim. somebody dropped him. probably a good thing i’m not asking JB here.

    in short term actually dropping parker (till next week when i’d turn a hitter, likely gomez, into SP streamer) is likely first drop.

    I am so damn gunshy of moving prospects in a dynasty….push me off a ledge if needed…..

    Cordell will prob come up this year
    Winker will start soonish (damn you schebler)

    I’d already tried a dual Brewers catcher thing like you mentioned in Fridays buy column,but had to bail before I got a chance to run with it in an 8 team,unlimited moves,daily roster,Wild West among friends league.There is no real point trying to utilize strategy in that chaotic scenario.

    However,on a team in a 12 team,8×8 H2H keeper league that has Ramos stashed on the DL,I’ve already dumped Vogt for Pina.I’m thinking seriously about dumping Gausman(my SP10) and carrying Bandy until Ramos comes off the DL,maybe longer if it’s working.

    I’ve charted my opponents through mid-June and will only(as of now) be out SP’ed 1 week(just 10-9).I’ve blown off saves,am carrying 3 holds guys and whatever Devenski is plus 9 SP’s and 1 bench bat .

    So,if you did this people maybe would look at you crazy,but you wouldn’t be alone.Most budget asylums I’ve been in were double occupancy anyway.
