The title of this post is more indicative of what the fantasy baseball season does to us than to what this player will do for you. How nutty was week 1? I’m loving drafting Adrian Gonzalez in the 4th round of the Razzball Pert’s league, and pissed at myself for not drafting J.D. Martinez anywhere. I really liked J.D. coming into the year and yet got sniped on him every time I was ready to draft him. Same goes for Matt Harvey. I heart you two and will look to trade for you at premium prices if I must. Wait! What? No I won’t. Yes you will. Okay, maybe I will, but sometimes you have to pay a price to get the toys you want. The bills on my Impala can attest to that. Before I move into this week’s creeper, I want to thank all the commenters that came out for the Easter Creeper. What a great kick off to the MLB season…thanks guys. It was a great opener for the baseball season.

This week, the 4.8% owned Kevin Keirmaier has me licking my chops as I see a hot start getting some nice ballparks and lots of right-handers. The regular readers here, which you all should be, and how dare you if you are not, know that he was not a buy this past Friday for the fantasy master lothario. That makes me feel the need to pick up the slack and throw Kev’s hat into the ring. Our resident numbers game bear/bull/trash-man Big Magoo grabbed him in the writers league, damn you BM, and catcher-question-hater commenter Cram has been screaming his undying love of the K-dog in the comments and took him in one of the leagues I play in. I kinda hate you two, but who would I be if I wasn’t hating?

This week he opens with a tasty four game set in the home run friendly Rogers Centre, where he gets three right-handers and one lefty. The lefty is the one day I’d sit him this week, for his left-handed bat over the past three years has supplied a paltry .203 BA vs. his .280 against right-handers. After Toronto, he goes to lefty friendly New York and gets three more right-handers to finish off the week. He’s never been a big power guy, but let’s look at a few batted ball profile percentages for fun. He had the 30th best HR/FB (13%) among outfielders last year with at least 350 AB’s, just behind Carlos Gomez and ahead of Michael Brantley and Starling Marte. His GB% is quite high (10th highest OF at 52.6%), which was just ahead of Hunter Pence, but not even close to ground ball specialist Christian Yelich (61%). His ISO of .187 was 20th among OF with the same parameters above. You can point out his minor league numbers don’t quite line up with that, but with 364 AB’s its also hard to write it off as an outlier. His glove will always keep him in the line-up (he is one of the best defensive right fielders in the game), so playing time shouldn’t be a problem if any of you have that worry. He’s been batting lead off and looks locked in so far putting up a 5/2/4/0/.385 line the first week and as this sounds like a buy, it is. Buy him for week 2 and be prepared to hold as this creeper can turn into a keeper.

Frankencatcher: Yes, I changed the name this week as I want to promote the Frankenplays. It really should be in the glossary at this point. I’m not the only one who uses it and it’s going to be a part of your fantasy vernacular whether you like it or not. I’m quite bummed out last week’s play John Jaso got hurt early and went on the DL. Now before I move on to my play I want to give some parameters I’ll be using with the Frankencatcher play. The top-12 owned are obviously off the board, and I will never put a % on it but will try and be reasonable on guys you should be able to grab. The 0.4% owned Chris Iannetta has been off to a slow start so far this year but has the chance to breathe some life into your line-up this week. He is the highest rated under owned catcher play on the Hitter-Tron this week at 7th with a $7.7 dollar value. He gets three games at Houston and three at Texas. He favors lefties (3 year average of .259 vs .228 against RHP) and gets three of them this week. It would be hard to assume what the Sciosciapath will do so take all of this with lots of grains of salt, preferably around the rim of a glass, and alcohol in said glass. If you own Yan Gomes, who got hurt on Saturday, then you might want to plug in Chris because he should be available while you wait on the fate of my favorite Brazilian major leaguer.

Bonus Creeper: My other favorite under-owned plays are the lefty Baltimore duo of Alejandro De Aza (7.4) and Travis Snider (10.2). They are both liked by HitterTron and who can blame that oversexed Buick loving bot. They get five right-handers out of their six games with three at home and three at Fenway.

  •  I dropped out all the DL and NA players from this list as I try to keep it filled with guys playing or about to play. I’m looking at you Brandon Belt.
  • The biggest leap was J.D. Martinez. I was blown away with how he has picked up where he left off last season, and is bringing back memories of a Bautista-esque run. His 22 spot jump is the most significant one here.
  • Steve Pearce, Pedro Alvarez and Anthony Gose are a few of the players to enter the list. Pearce and Pedro look sharp, and wow, does that sentence sound all about a hundred times wrong. I don’t want the words sharp and Pearce anywhere near my Pedro.
  • Billy Butler and Matt Adams = DOUBLE MOOBS… BRRRRRRRRRRITTSKY
  • Am I the only one seeing a crazy quietly huge year out of Howie Kendrick. 90+ RBI’s? Can I get a please and thank you?

    Thanks J-Foh,

    This helps for my daily leagues.

    Please pick 2: Good problem to have I got Boxberger in the Res Rd and Grilli off waivers but whoever I don’t start I’m sure will have the most saves!

    Cishek:@Atl @NYM
    [email protected]@Pit
    Boxberger NYY @Tor
    Grilli Mia @Tor

    Thanks

      @Chris: I’d sit Chisek, hasn’t looked right yet and not worth playing til he figures it back out. Grilli looks like a man possessed plus the Braves have strangely been winning so I’d start him for sure. I’d go Krod for your last spot.but it’s really a coin flip.

        Again Thanks,

        One more question. 14 team league 5×5 pick a DH and a 2nd baseman if you don’t mind.
        DH:
        Aoki
        Brad Miller
        Moreland
        Joyce

        2nd

    Are these hitter rankings based on standard 5×5 12 team for ROS? Also, did Souza just miss the top 100?

    • J-FOH says:

      @Jack: yes and yes. I had him in my preseason top 100 but need to see more to bring him back

  3. Glavis says:

    My Samardzija and Boxberger for his Rodney and J. Nelson?

    I’m in love with Nelson and I also need saves

    • J-FOH says:

      @Glavis: NO! You should be able to give up far less to get Nelson.

      • Glavis says:

        @J-FOH: Haha, okay how about this

        My staff is T. Ross, Samardzija, T. Walker, C. Martinez, Peavy, Burnett and Greene. Who should I give up for him?

        • J-FOH says:

    Howie Kendrick hitting cleanup, its a beautiful thing. I could see 90+ RBI to go with a very nice AVG to boot. Not bad for my 2nd base slot.

    I was just gonna say, look at those Jays with three guys in the top 12, boy they’ve come a long way. Which is why I’m gonna throw out that Donaldson is Blue Jay now, wink wink.

    Then I was gonna check how my RCL guys are ranked, which is why I’m pointing out that Pujols is no longer an OF on the Astros……..hmmmm, was he ever an OF on…..never mind, not important.

    • A Hill O' Beans says:
      (link)

      @A Hill O’ Beans: Damn, Jays get no love around here. I hear Reyes is a pretty solid Toronto Blue Jays player too. Almost as good, but not quite, as when he used to play for the NYM….

      JFOH, if you were gonna trade for a relatively cheap guy to get a boost in steals, SAGNOF I know, which is why I say fairly cheap, who might you target?

        • A Hill O' Beans says:
          (link)

          @J-FOH: Thanks. How about at MI, got anyone there?

          • J-FOH says:
            (link)

            @A Hill O’ Beans: depends on how yor leaguemates value their players. I’d try for Segura if he wasn’t over drafted

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @A Hill O’ Beans: It was a typo as I was shuffling guys around. But you know who they are. I didn’t even catch Donaldson last week since I didnt move him. On my original list Jay put in the teams and positions, I actually caught and corrected a few last night but I guess not all. Oh well

      • A Hill O' Beans says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Yeah, normally I wouldn’t say anything, but I’m assuming you’ll be using this list every week so…

    Thanks for the creepers. Getting killed in an RCL by WHIP and ERA. I grabbed Buchholtz for his Philly start. Would you roll him out there against the Shady Pines retirement home residents tonight? Thanks.

    • J-FOH says:

      @Baezaworldseries: you’re welcome, I wouldn’t pitch him

      • Baezaworldseries says:

                @J-FOH: I could go Kiermeier for this week or; Snider Torii, Victorino, D Peralta Inciarte, Fuld Schafer Marsnick. Or should I nab Tomas and hope comes up soon?

                  (link)

                  @Baezaworldseries: Kiermaier or Snider, both are nice now and long term. Kier will help you more in runs and Snider is a slight up for power but its close. Keep in mind both are must sits vs Lefties

    3 open spots which I’m planning on rostering pitchers in and soooo many people I want to pick up…. I do need closers so do I speculate for saves and pick up Castro, Familia, Ottavino, or do you think any of these SPs on the WW would be better Greene, Nelson, Heston, Colon, AJ Burnett.

    Thanks!

      @JJ: Id do it, I drafted Ottavino in a few spots for this very reason. He pitches well in Colorado and has gotten better every year for the last three. His HR/9 is good for a guy that pitches in Colorado

    Hey J-FOH. Is it time to cut bait on B.CECIL and grab A.OTTAVINO? I don’t think that Hawkins will be staying in as closer after blowing another one today. Although I do have a feeling that Cecil may get another shot.

    In my weekly H2H points league, I have a bunch of two-starters:
    McCarthy vs Sea, vs Col
    Shoemaker @ Tex, @ Hou
    Paxton @ LAD, vs Tex
    Greene @ Pit, vs CWS

    Then I’m thinking of benching two of:
    McHugh vs Oak
    Hughes vs Cle
    Iwakuma @ LAD

    so that I can start 3 of my two-starters.
    Of the three single starters, who would you roll out (leaning towards starting McHugh), and of the two-starters, who would you bench (leaning towards benching McCarthy)?
    Or would you do something different?

    Thanks a bunch!

    • J-FOH says:

      @Lemmingness: Greene and Paxton for sure. Shoe is not that good on the road but i would start him there against those clubs . I agree on McHugh being your one start guy.

          @Bob: it’s worth the risk to me. Pomeranz isn’t giving up much to get a potential steal.

    Hi Mr. J-Foh,
    Drop Mujica for Farquar? Looking for saves…A-rod is for real???

    Thanks

    • J-FOH says:

      @Joe Shmoe: meh. Seems pretty lateral. I would look at ottavino or ramos if they are availavle before farquar

      He can still hit but I don’t think the power is coming back.

    Hammel v SD or pitch Haren v ATL this week?

      @M: Hammel but it’s close

          @Bob: Jason Hammel? He just had a solid outing in Colorado. Doesn’t give up many walks and is a good low end arm.

    JFoh yoyo

    Great first week for this dude…. Miggy at 2nd overall had me a bit worried but I honestly felt like lastyear was his floor…

    10 H2H nk Yahoo league where I punted MI… ended up with Danny Santana but moved him for Devon White Travis but will keep a close eye on Danny still… regretting not taking Segura instead of Santana.

    Also TOTALLY agree on Howie in Dodgerville— I think had everyone seen him as the clean up hitter in LA there’s no way his ADP is in the 100s.

    A healthy Kinsler will be untouched at 2B IMO followed closely by Howie and Altuve in terms of overall value. Cano will be fine but as a 2nd rounder I’m not sure he produces to that ADP

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @jal179: I like the ballsy move on Travis.

      Thanks and agree on all points made. In one advanced league I got Kinler at 89, just shocking

      • jal179 says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH:

        89??? hot damn, bonerific. The guy is studly and kept reaching for him in the 4th rds of most mocks…. 18 HRs and 100 runs is a top 25 player…

        If the Tigers go after Hamels (which I think they have to…), that is a scary team if they have some luck in the health department.

      • jal179 says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH:

        Grey and I exchanged some comments on Travis yesterday…. as a devout Jays fan I juat cannot understand putting a slow Martin in the 2 hole…. maybe it’s a healthy Saunders that settles into the 2 hole once he comes back but Travis just looks like a prototype 2 hole type player…. that potential alone made me pull the trigger… last year I hornyly jumped on Dee Gordon very early…. I’m ahuge proponent of aggressive wire play early in shallow leagues but only at the positions u waited on…. MI and C always

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @jal179: Hamels would be a great fit there and agree on being aggressive, especially with a player that has some tools. I had him in my late round flyers middle infield postfor a good reason.

  27. TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:

    Gyorko or Howie Kendrick? Gyorko is off to a horrible start and Howie is batting cleanup for the dodgers… Thanks.

  28. TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:

    How about Rollins Vs. Segura? Rollins for now but keep an eye on Jean? Thanks.

    McCann or Vogt or Wilson Ramos or Grandal or Norris? 5×5 + OPS and Hits…. 10 teamer

    Currently have McCann…. i hate C lol

    Kiermaier was a batty call, but I can see him becoming a hold in the near future. He’s yours for the taking now though.

    Good call on Pearce. The bandwagon is almost full now. Still has a few seats remaining though. Hanley is still quite low…

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Big Magoo: Kiermaier will be off and on RCL rosters all year, like David Peralta.

      Pearce is quite a nice value player for those who drafted him

      Oh Magoo, you know how I feel about Half Ass Hanley and is mental shenanigans. Its a trust issue with him.

      • Big Magoo

        Big Magoo says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Yup, Peralta is a solid batty call option too.

        Oh and Hanley just went deep as I was in the middle of tying this.

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Big Magoo: oh and that changes who he is, I’ll put him in my top 5 next week

            @J-FOH: Haha, don’t be silly. He doesn’t run enough anymore to warrant that high of a ranking. But you’re getting warmer!

    10 team 5×5 H2H
    Samardzjia and Ellsbury for Donaldson, which side wins?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Bob: Ellsbury side, its close, unless you have a lot of good arms available, I know volume is important in H2H with starting pitching

    picked up Utley as a replacement for Rendon.

    dropped Utley for Devon Travis. i’m wondering if i should have gotten Marcus Semien instead?

    thoughts?

    Machado is just rusty, right? I just got my ass handed to me by a squad that had no business handing me my ass because I own players like Machado, Marte, Trumbo and Myers. I know it’s week 1 and all but…

      @Colonel Angus: I look at it this way, week one is just the first cut of a scab that will be picked at all season.

    Have Arcia on the bench. Drop him for any of the following: Gose, Kiermeier, Snider, Ackley, Canha, Fowler, Span, Reddick?

    • KillerB says:
      (link)

      @KillerB: Or maybe drop him for one of these pitchers: Petit, Burnett, Ubaldo, Morrow, Hahn, Lackey, Gallardo?

      @KillerB: Gose

    I know I know…I’ve stashed too many in 12 team basic keeper. If I want to use Sale and/or Jansen gotta drop 2. Or should I wait longer to see who plays well or wait till someone hits DL. Who would you drop or would you wait for a while?

    why not post a number to the side of each guy saying how they’ve moved up or down since last week’s post, like JB does with his pitchers one? Or coloring them red/green or other colors. Easier to see the movement that way.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Bull in a Chinese Restaurant: I’ll talk to Jay and see if thats what he wants. Me personally I don’t want it cluttered with a bunch of +1 and -1’s all over. Maybe I can do it if they move 5 in either direction.

      • Bull in a Chinese Restaurant says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: or maybe not the exact number but put maybe their names a certain color if they’ve moved up or down 5 or more.

      @Cram It: you have been the only guy all over him this past week and I always try to include commenters that do that, when they are the only one. Its my way of giving back and if you are out on a date you can show her/him that some guy on some blog talked about you and see if that helps you pick up an extra base.

        @J-FOH: ahhhh, I knew that. My sincerest apologies.

  42. I doubt you get to this J Hoff but let’s say you do. Just got Bryant activated today so I had too loose a guy of my roster. Ops league I’m good in steals. I kept Will Myers and Brandon Moss. And dropped L.Martin. after looking at your list it seems your highest on Martin. Given its a 6×6 ops league do you feel I made a good bat or six to one half dozen to Wake Ups mother

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Dnut Eastwood: I have him up there for the 30 steal speed but if you don’t need him then the value is irrelevant. You made the right move. Myers moved up in my list coming out this Sunday
