Brett Anderson hit the IL with a blister on his finger. Shame really. Super, super sad news. *watches two-hour VHS titled, “Fist Pump Like Tiger Woods,” ejects the tape, stands up awkwardly, raises hand and FIST PUMPS* I’m doing it! I’m fist pumping! So, little ol’ Anderson was willing to play through it but the coaches were worried the compromised grip would affect him. Little ol’ Anderson said, “Gonna have to leave it to the other four horsemen.” Corbin Burnes wasn’t in my rankings, but if I were adding people, I would add him. (At this point, I’m only removing opt outs and seriously injured players, because it’s too late in game to be adding guys for drafts. If you’re following along, you know which guys I like more now.) So, Burnes works off three-point-seventy-five pitches. Not quite four, and operates in the fast lane with a 95+ MPH fastball, and a babymaking slider that produced a 52.1% strikeout rate and .188 BAA. The Milwaukee Burnes’ers’ Burnes had a 12.9 K/9 last year and has great command, though he didn’t show it. Looking for a breakout that is likely available in most shallower leagues? Burnes said, “Say goodnight, Bretty,” and you say hello to Corbin. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Ryan Braun – Sounds like he won’t be ready for Re-Opening Day, due to back, oblique, and neck. This confirms it, Braun only plays 75% of games whether there’s 162 games or 60 games.

Eric Lauer – Arrived late at camp, and now won’t be ready for start of the season. Sounds like Trevor Bauer will just have to throw another five innings a start for the Brewers. What’s that, he’s on the Reds? Oh, didn’t you hear, Bauer’s throwing 120 pitches a game for every team to get us through 60 games.

A.J. Puk – Hit the 10-day IL with a shoulder strain, and is headed to see Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Only good ElAttrache is the Nike ElAttraches. Damn, those shizzes were funky! Yo, is it a sandal, a flip-flop, a sneaker a mother-effin boot?! So, I didn’t have Puk in my top 100 starters until the shutdown, then I added him. Teach me to not trust my first instinct. It’s just…I blink so much, how do I know which blink to trust? Alas, Puk got chucked from my top 500 like Chunk chucked puke from the balcony.

Kwang-Hyun Kim – Will open season as the Cardinals closer. Oh…*stacks jars of pickles to the moon*….kay. Damn, I’m glad I wasn’t invested at all in the Cardinals’ 9th inning. What an absolute clusterfudge of nonsense. Cards’ manager, Mike Shildthead, said Kim will likely close — a guy who threw 190 1/3 IP last year and has roughly 7.5 K/9 stuff? Are we sure Shildthead knows he has Kim and not Kimbrel or even Joakim Soria? So, I adjusted my top 500 with this news, but I now have no confidence in any reliever in St. Louis.

Dwight Smith Jr. – Hit the IL with Covid. The O’s have DJ Stewart to replace him, which is appropriate since at least five times a year I confuse the two. Can they both just go by DJ Smith Jr.?

Derek Dietrich – Released by the Reds. Sigh. That sucks. For literally no one but me and Dietrich, since I’m the only a-hole who owns him. He looks like an extra from Uncut Gems and his flashy jewelry was intriguing! Excuse me!

Jed Lowrie – Placed on the IL. He was injured two years ago cashing his $20 million dollar contract, and never the same since.

Walker Lockett – Hit IL with back discomfort. He will be replaced by Walter Poppett who was drafted right before him.

Matt Adams – Signed by the Braves to play some 1st, some DH and just be an all-around “Hey, I didn’t know Matt Adams was on the Braves”-type of guy.

Ryan Pressly – Will be Astros’ closer if Roberto Osuna can’t start year, and all indications Osuna won’t start the year. Whether it’s Pressly or Lee Press, they’re both nails.

Monte Harrison – Won’t make team out of camp. Hopefully, he’s up right after he clears imaginary service time hurdles, which, I believe, is like ten games into the season. I don’t know, which I think is the whole point. This really needs to change. Fans should know a date when every guy can be called up, and it should be one date for everyone. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

Gavin Lux – Dave Roberts said 2nd base is an open competition. Like American Idol? Man, Lux must’ve really pissed off the wrong person to have to compete with Chris Taylor. Even if Lux “wins” the job, it’s going to be at best a platoon, and terrible for his fantasy value.

Anthony Rendon – Maddon’s not certain Rendon will be ready for the season. If I had any last-minute drafts, I wouldn’t be taking Rendon. Obliques are tricky; Trout could leave the team mid-August; semi-colons are fun.

Evan Longoria – Will open season on the IL. Also, Brandon Belt will do the same. Don’t worry, they have Pablo Sandoval and he put on extra weight so he can cover 1st and 3rd.

Casey Mize – Reassigned to minor league camp with Matt Manning, Alex Faedo, Spencer Torkelson and about five other guys who are all better than their MLB counterpart. As Tyra Banks would say, with no Mize, there’s nothing to smize about.

Jakob Junis – Hit the IL with Covid, but could be back by next week. That opens a temporary rotation spot for…*finger to ear bud*…I’m being told the Royals only have two pitchers.

Ke’Bryan Hayes – Returned two negative tests and can rejoin the Pirates. Shame they’ll never play him. Hayes & Mountcastle should go start their own team and BBC show.

John Ryan Murphy – Signed with the Pirates to backup Jacob Stallings.  Fun fact! American Horror Story was created in the John by Ryan Murphy.

    Grey!!!!

    What an amazing report! Had me in chuckles all the way through but mostly for the Murphy (1st place) and Longoria (2nd place) blurbs! Sandoval can cover the entire infield!

    a. Saw someone added Kim. I looked up his stats from the KBO (which is like MiLB AA at best) and yeah his last two years had 4+ K/BB but before that it was in the 1-2 range and as you say he was a starter his ENTIRE career there. Unless he makes a miraculous Eckersley turnaround…I signed up Corbin Burnes instead of Kim ’cause one in the hand is worth two in the bush.

    b. Invested in Pressly, hope it pays dividends. I think it will even if Osuna gets back. What the hell is wrong with Osuna? Why isn’t he pitching off a mound somewhere?

    b. MLB quote of the day for July 21, 2020

    ‘I remember when I wanted every pitch to be a strike.’

    Edward Augustine ‘Big Ed’ Walsh. He is the last pitcher to throw more than 400 IP in a single season. He is also one of only two modern day pitchers (post-1901) to win 40 or more games in the season. In game 3 of the 1906 WS, he struck out a then record 12 batters in the game. He also struck out at least one batter per inning, achieved only ONCE by Bob Gibson in the 1968 WS opener. He has the career second lowest WHIP (1.00) and the lowest ever for someone with ten seasons or more (Joss from yesterday ONLY pitched nine seasons.).

    His 162-game average for his 14-year career is as follows.

    18-12, 1.82 ERA, 29 GS, 23 CG (79%), 271 IP, 214 H, 80 R, 55 ER, 56 BB, 158 K, 146 ERA+, 2.02 FIP, 1.00 WHIP, 2.81 K/BB. He is the career leader in FIP and ERA and 2nd in WHIP.

    Cheers,
    Ante

        Grey!!

        Meh, with all the importance on Ks in this newer era, he’s more like a bulldogish Kyle Hendricks. Nothing wrong with Kyle Hendricks on your roster if you have K/9 elsewhere but it seems like the Walsh’s of this world are dying breed. Actually, he probably destroyed his arm by throwing so many seasons of 320 IP+, just like Joss from yesterday. Komiskey didn’t give him the year off to rest his arm that he requested, he said play or I’ll drop you. He couldn’t play so Comiskey let him go. Comiskey was worse than a gangster.

    i read in two spots it’s after 6 days into season when the service time duck duck goose game stops. also harper brought up that exact time (he might’ve thought 5 days, it might be 5 or 6) when referencing that s.howard should be up with team pitching against NYY on day 6 (or day 7). braun is absolutely the new s.victorino on being injured from doing absolutely nothing. but at least victorino had to play OF when he was doing this dance. braun hasn’t had to do anything, and won’t need to do any actual baseball playing and still can’t do that. he probably needs similar to what hanram needed to play in his last 2ish years, about 5 hours of message/medical treatments to play each and every day (i’m not making that up on hanram).

    there SHOULD be a lesson in braun for young athletes about roid usage (or HGH or whatever batch of shit he’s pumped into his body for years, i know it was expensive, since he always passed the tests (even if sometimes his results had 10-11x what humans have for testosterone in their bodies some of the time)), but i’d guess the very same kind of stupid that has people doing that is the same that tends to not learn about this stuff till it’s far too late. would NOT want to live a day in the body of braun when he’s 50+ (almost 37 now and can’t swing a bat nor do anything else at camp, this after having off more than 4 months by now)

      I wonder what he’d say if you ask him if he’d do it all over again – he did win the MVP over Matt Kemp, and was one of the top players… speaking of Matt Kemp, talk about another player who has fallen apart, but not cause of roids as far as I know

      victorino was definitely don by 2012 or so …………because of the way he played he was always injury prone how much do you think the special vitamins contriubted? is that more the later years to stay on the field or do you think he did it all along just to get in the game ?

        when i first read it from a local newspaper man i figured it was probably true, but those guys are str up stupid with some stuff some of the time, but by now i’ve read it in 3-4 spots including last night reading about how bad it’ll look that harper saying “he thinks s.howard should be up in 6 (or 7) days” will end up looking bad for the players he DOESN’T say that about. and a union player openly discussing how a team “should” use the service time game of course doesn’t look good. but really, it’s not on him, the TEAMS do that, he’s just being aware of it and making accurate assessments of living in that paradigm.

  3. Harley Earl says:

    You’ve made a mistake saying you have no confidence in the St. Louis closer. I sure have confidence.

    Kim absolutely dominated in the spring before the shutdown. The Cardinals love what he has to offer. I’ve had confidence in Kim ever since I started reading and hearing about him in January and he’s on three of my rosters that were drafted in January. I thought originally he’d be a starter, then a holds guy. Instead, I get the bonus that he’ll now be the closer. That’s how much confidence THEY have in him. They see him as good enough for one of the most important roles on the team.

    Sometimes you just gotta trust what the team says early on and your own gut instinct. I think Kim will do just fine in this role. I don’t really understand why you would dog pile on the move the Cardinals made. I like it! But you’re all sour over there in the corner like a teenage girl who got jilted at prom for someone prettier. So now you’re just going to pout since you were wrong. LOL

    • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
      (link)

      it’s not confidence here, if carmart wasn’t in shape he was going down there, but he is and he don’t want to close (every STL guy knows carmart is a massive headcase and anything keeping him from having a hissyfit is needed). kim has said in public at least numerous times that he’d be happy in whatever role they gave him. it was even discussed before the contract was signed. being a big STL fan you likely already knew this too. so kicking kim out of starting job ain’t ruffling the feathers kicking carmart out would (plus carmart if he’s back to what he was before is just good and more valuable as more than a 1 inning pitcher)

      it certainly is more confidence determined currently to say:
      – gallegos (got into camp about 2 days ago and i’d bet green money he ain’t locating just yet, and IF he IS locating just yet is worth more in higher leverage spots than say a 3 run lead to start an inning, as per last year when he was used for the highest leverage they had)
      – helsley (similar to young j.hicks, likely control stuff here too. 102 by itself ain’t shit)

      you also likely knew these things, but being “right” feels too good to not throw your own party when on the good side of variance. wondering if you’ll be present for the clean up of that party if say he’s moved out of it if/when some mix of 1. gallegos looks good, 2. kim doesn’t in closer role and is removed to piggybacking work (likely for hudson, who ain’t good and himself had the best good-side-of-variance-party of almost any SP last year)

      i would easily believe kim is far better as starter than hudson or wainwrong on the road or probably at all is. would also agree that kim should’ve been paid more by some team with a lot of money too (CUBS come to mind as they could’ve benefited themselves greatly by outbidding a division rival, if i was kim’s agent i’d have gone this route exactly). not suggesting kim here won’t have a good year in whatever role (final boss s.oh was good when league hadn’t seen him ever too for a while)

      – here’s one, what kind of line could i get that lindblom ends this year better than kim? 8-1? something around that, more? see how high this confidence can get.

      • Harley Earl says:
        (link)

        I have mentioned Kim on here several times since February and been largely ignored except for by Itch or Hobbs. I think it is Itch that likes him too.

        I have not once run out and picked up Helsley or any other reliever for STL but I have held Kim on my roster now for five months. Based on everything I read, there was no way I would cut him. If you guys had listened or actually decided to read up on Kim, maybe you wouldn’t be cracking jokes in an attempt to deflect the point that Kim really should not have gone unnoticed and should not suddenly be a surprise.

        It kind of makes sense to use Kim in the closer role too. They area paying closer money and nobody in the league has ever seen him. By the time teams get enough of a feel for him to have an idea of what’s coming, the season will be over. Smart move by the Cardinals.

        • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
          (link)

          everybody in deep dynasties “read up” on kim back in jan/feb. we’re quite aware of his existence. i’m looking to get some nice fat odds lindblom does better, as i’m pretty sure it’s a coin flip but you have heavy “confidence” here. and we’ll see if you’ll show up reverse-gloating on kim if/when he’s removed or does badly and goes into some middle or piggybacking role. that 2nd paragraph of yours far above would seem due for some comeuppance in the event this happens, but it’s under 10% of people that actually do that. i bring up lindblom since they are both non-young-in-town from asian leagues who were mentioned in numerous deep league posts as being useful for deep leagues (these since jan or so). s.oh was in this exact same boat (and about the same age at the time he came over), excepting the fact that he was a big deal closer over there for years when he came over.

          – i don’t know who “ignored” your earlier kim comments. was mentioned at the bottom specifically of itch’s 1st year player draft top 50 page. not doubting he’d have said the guy would have some kind of value though, pretty sure i remember him saying that in a few spots than that spot.

    Deal advice. I’m in 6×6 OPS and QS league. I have Starling Marte, who I don’t want… and can trade it for Corbin, but I don’t need him.

    Then I can package Corbin with either Shogo Akiyama or Kyle Tucker for Springer who is owned by another team. So its basically a deal of Marte and one of the mentioned OFs for Springer (maybe I can push for Devers).

    Do you think is a fair trade? And if so, who I should package with Corbin? And finally, if I do deal, who would you pick from waiver wire between Hilliard and Madrigal?

    How is Fantrax handling Sandoval playing 1B and 3B simultaneously? Can we get credit for each of his strikeouts twice by slotting him into both?

    Finally had the in-fill draft for my 12 team dynasty (H2H, 6×6 OPS/ QS/ Holds) last night. It’s funny to go into a draft with a team that’s almost entirely set- I only had a couple bench slots to fill, plus the added Covid bench slots for this year only.
    Baseball is finally almost here:
    C1- Vazquez (K)
    C2- Stallings
    1B- Bellinger (K)
    2B- Biggio (K)
    SS- Mondesi (K)
    3B- Chapman (K)
    OF- Betts (K), Harper (K), Laureano (K), Rosario (K)
    UT- Braun (K), Hampson (K)
    BN- Renato Nunez (K), Newman (K), Grisham, Urshela, Calhoun
    SP- Scherzer (K), Bieber (K), EdRod (K), Gallen (K), Maeda (K), Odorizzi (K), Manaea (K), Plesac (K), Pablo Lopez (K), Houser
    RP- Hendricks (K), Petit (K), Romo (K), Bummer (K)

    Anything that stands out as needing improvement? We’re all unaccustomed to Roto so should be a weird season. Standard Yahoo defaults (60 games/position 525 IP max).

    Thanks

      Team looks solid, your pitching is stacked if things play out as they should…Your hitting looks decent, it’s shallow enough where you just need to make sure you have productive bats throughout, and Yordan might not be

    Good morning! You guys are the best!
    I’ve got Mr. Headache Puig ina ten team league. Buxton and Kendrick are available. Should I make the swap or wait a few more days? If so, for who? We have limited 32 moves. Also , I have Christian walker… who’s status is pending, should I hang on to him?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Buxton…Hold Walker for now

      I’d hold Lux and Lowe for now

    Finally had my draft yesterday, 14 team dynasty league (6×6 with OBP, SLG, Holds, QS). Pickings are always very slim with keepers and farm systems. All thoughts are welcome.

    C: Realmuto
    1B: Alonso
    2B: Ketel Marte
    SS: Tim Anderson
    3B: JD Davis
    OF: Conforto, Renfroe, Biggio
    UT: Andujar
    Bench: Danny Santana, Berti, La Stella, Kyle Lewis, Ji Man Choi, Cristin Stewart

    SP: Clevinger, Glasnow, Maeda, Paxton, Rich Hill, Civale, Plesac, Odorizzi, Houser
    RP: Jansen, Will Smith, Joe Jimenez, Ginkel, Kahnle, Wittgren

    I’m pretty satisfied with how it played out. Definitely prioritized positional flexibility.
    Wish I had a few more top relievers and a bit wary of having over half of the Twins and Indians pitching staffs, but at least the Central teams are pretty weak.
    Also have Dylan Carlson waiting in the wings.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Love this team, think your hitting and pitching look great…If I had to nitpick, I’d say you look low on OBP and a bit risky on pitching

      • Prawn says:
        (link)

        Thanks! I’m pretty happy with it, especially with the lack of any real first round talent. (Hoping Marte might solidify a spot there soon). Hoping it all breaks my way, but in 60 games, who knows.

        Big fan of reading your work! Thanks for the reply!

    Grey!

    Razzball!

    Awesome daily notes. Lots to glean…

    Really enjoyed Goin Deep B_Don and Donkeyteeth did with Scott White. Y’all need to listen!

    Quick hits: Alcantara and Josh James are b2b in the rankings. Who do you like in a QS league?

    Bassit or Burnes in Ws and QS league?

    Thanks!!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks! I’d try James

      Bassit is way safer, but if last guy on team I’d try Burnes for now

      • JakeTPE says:
        (link)

        Thank you sir.

        It may all be temporary with Civale announced for CLE and currently occupying my NA slot. He was a higher pick back in March. I’ll go with the top 500 unless you have a feeling otherwise!

        Brought in Burnesy what the hey right? Who wants safe we need more fun! =D

    (link)

    Sorry for doubling up—I asked this on your last post but I think it was too late for you to see.

    Grey, I’m excited for baseball but mainly excited for Razzball. Thanks for keeping me sane.

    Got a question. Here’s my team in a 12-team 5×5 redraft:

    C Kiner-Falefa
    1B Olson
    2B Moustakas
    SS Marte
    3B Rendon (yay)
    OF Bellinger
    OF Soler
    OF Castellanos
    ÚT Biggio
    UT Kingery
    BN Walker, Calhoun

    SP Bieber, Gray, Kluber, Gallen, Hill, Stripling, James, Houser
    RP Giles, Workman, Gallegos (waiver claim in for Kim)

    What do you think? Anyway, I feel the need for speed. Would it be crazy to offer Soler for Luis Robert straight up? I know you have Soler ranked well ahead, but given my team needs, maybe? Or am I a dummy?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks!

      I’d hold Soler, I think your team looks fine, maybe low on speed, but Robert’s not the answer…I’d prolly look at a Dyson-type for a bench spot and just play him occasionally…

      Your pitching looks great, I think your team looks solid overall…Hopefully Rendon is okay

      In a ten team 3 OF league there should be about 20-30 guys better than the 3 OFs you have.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks! Agree with Knoche, but if you plan on playing waivers until someone clicks, it’s fine….I think you have three aces on pitching, which has hurt your hitting

  26. Trader says:
    (link)

    Our league switched to Roto this year – with ten hitting categories which are Runs, RBI, SB, BBs, Ks, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR and ave.

    1. So I think this means banjo guys who walk and scratch out a decent average are more valuable in this format than the normal 5×5, correct??? SBs are only 1/10 now so less valuable etc.

    2. Morton or Castillo
    3. Hand or Iglesias
    4. Manaea or Stroman
    5. Voit, Walker or Cron
    6. Judge, Suarez, Abreau, Au Shizz (top 2)
    7. Ryu, Hendricks, Paxton, C Mart (top 2)
    8. Best round 23 hitter dart throw
    9. Best round 24 pitcher dart throw
    Note: saves and holds are separate cats
    Thank you!

    12 team 5×5 OBP. I have the 10th pick.

    I read through the draft pairings but it seems like they could be quite different in this format. What types of pairings would you target with this pick? Still taking Alonso in the 2nd?

  29. NUX says:
    (link)

    Burnes, just announced as starting on Saturday at Wrigley. Yippee!

    I just made a trade for him yesterday, so waking up to a Corbin Burnes headline was exciting

    Hopefully it goes better than my Freddy P obsession did last year…

                he’s hasn’t lasted long in any season for any sport in what like 6 years or so? he’s “returned” numerous times… then disappeared for at least 1/3 of any sport’s season, or just never returned that season after his posts would just stop with no notice. he is funny and i will read whatever he puts out. i thought for years he didn’t exist and was a grey fiction (till he did some of those podcasty videos)

    We switched to re-draft league for this year only, 12 team H2H. Felt weird with so much talent available and I had the 1 pick so the back-to-back was great. It’s the longest I’ve ever waited for my first arm, getting Castillo in round 6. Don’t feel great about the pitching but it’s a Grey type staff, and bats are loaded, me thinks. Thoughts?

    Hello Grey,

    good afternoon.

    Had my draft yesterday, and would appreciate your input.
    13 teams, Roto Standard with addition OBP, Loss, SV+H, k/9

    C – Kelly
    1b – Alonso
    2b – Hiura
    3b – Devers
    SS – Bichette
    OF – Bellinger, Rosario, Choo
    UTL – Dahl, Christian Walker
    BN – Miguel Andujar

    SP – Corbin, Kluber, Gallen, Odorizzi, Boyd, Lucchesi, Civale NA
    RP – Jansen, Melancon, Josh James, Barnes

    For the bats, i’m below average in speed.

    for pitching, i think i have high whip, but awesome ks and k/9 numbers.

    How do you see my team?

    in which order would you do the waiver wire considering i have Civale in NA, with one open spot:

    Montgomery to help era/whip?
    Stripling to help era/whip and some ks?
    Sam Hilliard? add him and drop Andujar?
    Mike Fiers?

    Thanks for your input.!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Love this hitting, but your pitching is a bit of a mess, I don’t love some of the arms you have as mentioned in the rankings….Stripling over Civale…Hold bats for now

  38. Matt says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey – had my 3rd and final draft of the year last night.

    12 team 6×6 (OPS + QS)

    C – Kelly
    1b – Freeman
    2b – Gurriel Jr
    3b – Chapman
    Ss – Rosario
    Of – Soto, Harper, Giancarlo
    Util – Olson, Laureano
    Bn – Mercado, Kingery

    Sp – Corbin, Castillo, S. Gray, Lamet, E-Rod, Stroman, Weaver
    Rp – Leclerc, Jimenez, Hudson, Watson

    What do you think?

      they both got DL’d less than a week ago or around it. no super crazy negative news, but they can’t pass corona tests yet either. and alvarez is esp mysterious with no actual news on him even since like early march or late feb, other than the DL around a week ago.

            knew you’d say that, good news is the majority of fantasy world values gibson much as grey here (we’ve all been massively burned by him for about 3 str years in deep leagues) so you could just easily get him back anyway. i’m holding out on rudy’s bots opinions on him (albeit less so than the last 3 years), the gap on grey to rudy’s bots on gibson is at an all time high this preseason.

    For H2H 5X5 OBP league, do you strictly use your OBP Rankings or is it kind of a mix-and-match between OBP and your regular rankings?

    I have 5th pick in a draft tonight and am trying to determine if I should be going with either Story/Lindor who are ranked higher in your standard but a little lower in OBP or Soto/Jose Ramirez who are ranked higher in the OBP rankings.

    Thanks!

    If you had Osuna as one of your two closers,would you add Presley if you had to drop Freddy Peralta or just wait for now? Thank you!

    • The Harrow says:

      this is pressly, would be in saves only over f.peralta anyway (hader/knebel in way), def in your case.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Yes, add Pressly

    oh man read this one:
    “Braves manager Brian Snitker said Tuesday that Matt Adams “kind of fills” the DH spot.”

    yeah i don’t think sniker saw an entire picture of fatt adams here, needs to expand out on that, as fatt adams doesn’t only “kind of fill” out anything.

      HA, of course!

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        wonder if fatt adams has to be routinely told his manager’s name isn’t “snickers” as i’m sure that name would sound like that to a large fat man. when he met him he might’ve been all “seriously dude, are you like IN the candy bar family” same way i was geeking out when i met d.strawberry and i was all “holy crap did you get to MEET groening when you did simpsons?!” i was star struck NOT from him being a famous baseball player even close to as much as somebody who played a character once in the simpsons heydays.

      nice, i’m guessing espn here (or fantrax) as it appears you got both otani’s for price of one, making him a very nice get. could be yahoo but you’d have had to pay for both.

      Love the starters, your RPs need some helps, maybe lots of help and your hitting is fine, but you look weak on AVG, SB and you have some real all or nothing guys which coudl be trouble in 60 games

      • Curious George says:
        (link)

        Fair enough. I usually am able to find some takers in my league to consolidate my spare parts into a good RP. I was surprised to be sniped on Nick Anderson, pomeranz, and Lugo – not typically guys my league targets above adp (by several rounds?!).

        I’ll keep an ear to the ground on some possible trade targets. Thanks guys!

                Counsell happy with his velo. Called the down time/summer camp knebel’s “minor league rehab assignment”

                Wondering if he may be closing games a few weeks into the season or getting holds?

                  Hader is closer, but Knebel might see a few looks, I suppose — worth carrying in right leagues

    5×5 Mixed, roto, Lifetime keeper league.

    We can not have any minor leaguers on our roster, but we do have a minor league spot on our bench…So, after the regular draft is over we have a minor league draft where every team picks a minor leaguer(basically a guy that has never played in the majors). If that guy gets called up during the season, you can put him on your active roster and then keep him for however long you want. So, it’s kind of a big deal because you can add a lifetime keeper stud to your roster, I got Tatis last year.

    I’m thinking the top guys this year are: Robert, Adell, Carlson, Pearson

    Am I missing any?
    How would you rank them?

    Any and all opinions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

      Robert 1000%…Then everyone else…Robert, Pearson, Adell, Gore, Carlson

      • Mex says:
        (link)

        Robert will go number one…I have the 4th pick.

        I figure i’ll take whoever is left standing at 4, but in this league some teams make wacky choices..out of the other guys, do any standout above the rest or is it really all a crapshoot ?
