Daniel Vogelbach (1-for-2, 2 runs and his 5th homer, and fifth in his last five games, hitting .471) is man-hot.  Daniel Vogelbach is the Jelly Donut of Swat.  Daniel Vogelbach looks like a beer keg with legs.  John Kruk and Matt Stairs had a baby, and that baby’s name is Daniel Vogelbach.  Daniel Vogelbach is one part mayonnaise, one part ketchup, and his secret sauce is Sexy, and he puts it on everything.  “Why, Fantasy Master Lothario (don’t abbreviate it), did Daniel Vogelbach spend 12 years in the minors if he’s spurting Sexy sauce on everything?”  You ask, while batting your eyelashes.  You have to subtract one of those years, young buck, because Daniel Vogelbach was once confused for a refrigerator and spent a summer in a Hyannis Port Sears showroom.  Mansplainingly, subtract, like, ten of those years because he couldn’t play defense and he was in the NL.  He’s done nothing but hit rockets like he’s groupies of Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy.  Last year, he hit 20 HRs and .290 in Triple-A with a 15.6% strikeout rate.  He could be an actual breakout and I would grab him, even if his playing time might become cramped with the return of Kyle Seager or he might just be platooned.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Dylan Moore – 2-for-4, 3 runs and his 1st homer.  I saw the box score listed him as D. Moore and I wanted to believe his name was Dinty Moore, so that’s what I will call him.

Edwin Encarnacion – 2-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 3rd and 4th homer, hitting .324.  Let the parrot perch!

Jay Bruce – 1-for-5 and his 6th homer.  Pretty cool that MLB allowed the Mariners to store their baseballs in a dehumidifier.

Tyler Austin – 1-for-2, 1 run, as he was traded to the Giants for Malique Ziegler.  You should hear me try to pronounce Malique.  Ma-leaky?  With this move the Giants DFA’d Connor Joe, so now we know what to answer when someone asks, “Where’d you come from and where’d you go Connor Eyed Joe?”  I like this move by the Giants.  Yes, it’s the first move I’ve ever liked by them.  Baby steps, Bob!  Austin was a preseason favorite of mine who was squeezed for playing time.  If he gets an everyday job in San Fran, he could sneak into 20+ homers.

Kevin Pillar – 1-for-4, 4 RBIs and a slam (1) and legs (2), a grand slam, hitting .111.  I like Pillar, and I think the Giants do too, because, ya know, they traded for him, so why on earth is he hitting 8th?  A reasonable explanation would be because Pillar is their 2nd best hitter, and Bumgarner is their best, protecting him.

Madison Bumgarner – 6 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.32.  Five imaginary dollars says he has an ERA over 4.15 this year.  Anyone want any action?

Fernando Tatis Jr. – 1-for-2, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .237.  Fernando Tatis Sr. was an artist, not just with MS Paint, but with his baby batter.

Nick Senzel – Out of his walking boot.  See, all he had to do was pay those old parking tickets.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – Pulled from the 2nd inning with a groin injury.  He was sidelined three months last year with a groin injury.  I’m assuming he has the same groin, so this isn’t good news.  Are we sure Ryu’s full last name isn’t Ryuok?  Don’t go cutting Julio Urias just yet.

Marcell Ozuna – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .229.  OZUNA shoulder feel better.  OZUNA wish last year’s pain on no one.  OZUNA can’t wish pain on anyone, OZUNA not genie.

Ronald Acuña Jr. – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .176.  Tildaddy says you can erase his Law & Order marathon from the DVR!

A.J. Minter – 1 IP, 0 ER and his 1st save.  However, or howmever if you’re trying to sound smart, Vizcaino went a few days in a row, so it might not mean as much as you think.

David DahlRockies said Dahl has a “slight” core injury and won’t be placed on the IL for the time being, which is what they say five days before putting him on the IL.

Raimel Tapia – 1-for-4 as he gets playing time with Dahl sidelined.  Tapia’s interesting for very light power and some speed, but mostly because of Coors and the Rockies kill role players fantasy value as much as Coors drives it.

Trevor Story – 1-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer.  Looks like he’s healthy.  Dot dot dot.  For now.  Kidding, I own him, and made a Story health doll out of twigs that I pray to every night, so we good.

Kyle Freeland – 5 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 5.40.  I’m not scared at all about starting German Marquez.  I’m petrified.

Tommy La Stella – 1-for-2, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .167.  Keep hitting like that and Ausmus is gonna bat you leadoff again.

Andrelton Simmons – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer.  He hit that one to outer space!  Which is also where his home planet is.

Mike Moustakas – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 3rd homer, hitting .194.  Moistasskiss!

Luis Severino – Didn’t feel good while long-tossing and is headed for another MRI.  His last MRI said, “I could’ve told you he wasn’t gonna get better,” then rolled its eyes.

Masahiro Tanaka – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 1.47.  *whispers so not to jinx*  Tanaka actually looks good at the beginning of the year for once.  Fantasy Baseball Overlord, “I CAN HEAR YOUR WHISPERS.”  Even while you’re shouting?  “NOT SO MUCH THEN.”

Aaron Judge – 2-for-3 and his 3rd homer, hitting .289.  Also, in this game, Jose Altuve (1-for-4, hitting .279) hit his 2nd homer.  Have you heard?  There’s a big height discrepancy between the two.

Brad Peacock – Moved to the bullpen for the next two weeks.  Some days you’re the cock of the walk, other days they’re like, “Peacock, take a walk.”

Justin Verlander – 6 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.24.  As an owner of Verlander (on a team I autodrafted; don’t ask, or simply search the site), I worry that I won’t know Verlander has resorted to Garbage-trucklander until it’s too late in the season.  Then again, it’s a Best Ball league, so I don’t even have to do anything.

Clay Buchholz – Will join the Jays’ rotation on Saturday.  Welp, that’ll fix them.

Odubel Herrera – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs with his 1st homer.  I knew it was his first homer without looking it up, know why?  No, it’s not because I’m an idiot savant.  Because I own ODB in multiple leagues and doode’s been a drag like Wednesday nights at the Man-Hole.  However, he does get crazy hot so giddy up, much like Thursday nights at the Man-Hole.

Rhys Hoskins – 2-for-4 and his 4th and 5th homer.  What’s it called if you have buyer’s remorse but haven’t bought something?  Caveat empty?  That’s what I have with Hoskins.  Serious caveat empty.  I know, it’s FOMO.  Podcast Ralph and I talk later today on the podcast about our FOMO.

Pat Neshek – 1 IP, 1 ER and his 1st save, ERA at 1.59.  Not to give the ADHD spokesman, Gabe Kapler, any credit, but he did at least attempt to make Seranthony Hopkins Dominguez and David Robertson the closers, they just couldn’t handle the job early on.  Now it’s rightfully a free-for-all in the Phils’ pen, and Neshek, on cue, gave up a 9-inning homer to of all people, Brian Dozier, so Neshek is not the answer.

Trey Mancini – 3-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .385.  He couldn’t have done this last year when I owned him in every league?  That would’ve been too much?  Why, God?  *Priest pulls back sheet* “I think you’re confusing what confession is.”

Chris Davis – 0-for-5, hitting nothing, literally.  Holds the new record for most consecutive 0-for’s at 0-for-49. How about All Star Game Home Run Derby participant, Chris Davis, but off a tee? Like you wouldn’t watch.

Jonathan Villar – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .341.  Loving seeing the world through these new Villar glasses.  It’s pronounced “VR.”  No?  Okay, let’s move on!

Cedric Mullins – 2-for-2, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, hitting .167. “Seems like he’s passed to another world, let’s just dump him into this large sewer like you’d see in a video game–Wait!  I think he’s alive!”  Sadly, now the dopey O’s are going to think he hits best as a 9-hole hitter, because that’s where he was last night.

Mark Canha – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 2nd homer.  I Canhas homerunzburger?

Jameson Taillon – 2 IP, 0 ER, but 6 unearned runs, ERA at 3.00.  Damn, that ticker shock had me staggering around, grasping my heart, like Redd Foxx.  You hear that, Elizabeth?  I’m comin’ to join ya, honey!

Jon Lester – 2 IP, 0 ER, but left the game with a bad hammy.  Sounds like he’s taking cues from Kermit.  *insert Fozzie Bear laugh*

Javier Baez – 2-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI, hitting .273.  He threw his bat for one of his singles, which is also the Hollywood Squares answer to, “How is Javier Baez also like a stripper?”  Stop it right now, Paul Lynde!

Kyle Schwarber – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .250.  That Schwarber platoons but Ben Zobrist is an everyday player is the definition of Maddoning.

Tommy Pham – 1-for-3, 2 runs and two steals (4, 5).  Fam, remind me never again to doubt Pham.  Almost palindrome!

Yandy Diaz – 2-for-6, 1 run, hitting .308.  He’s so big, like professional wrestler big, he should have one name.  Call him Yandiaz.  Or simply The Mountain.

Blake Snell – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.84.  Member when I was worried after his first bad start?  You don’t?  That’s prolly for the best.

Jose Rondon – 2-for-4 and his 1st homer, as he received the start against the lefty Snell.  His mafia boss name, Rondon Nada, and he sleeps with the fishes vs. righties.

Carlos Rodon – 4 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 3.38.  A fantasy baseball limerick, “Carlos Rodon is a horse.  But somehow the roles reverse.  Because as they trotted around the course.  Carlos was the one being WHIPped, oh, Curly, it hoits.  Can someone remove this curse?”

    Morning Grey,

    Good stuff again.

    I moved on from Mullins in a 12 team mixed 5×5 roto; might have to cyclops him with my monocle. Have enough OF depth really though with Domingod

    Streamonator says Junis ($11.9), Lucchesi($11.5) are starts today but Marquez (-$5.8) and Gonzales($3.5) are sits. What does Grey say ?

    Best wishes,

    14 Team H2H Auction redraft league. 6×6: Runs, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS and Ks, QS, ERA, WHIP, SV+HD, K/9

    1) not a question here, but I traded Hyun-Jin Ryu and Jeff McNeil for Yoan Moncada last week and got it processed before Ryu’s next start which was yesterday. I didn’t know when Ryu would get hurt but water is wet and Ryu gets hurt. So glad I could get the free player with breakout potential in Moncada
    2) dropped Jesus Aguilar for Ryon Healy and have no regrets. I only drafted Aguilar because he was the last “good” 1B left. 1B sucks this year and Healy looks like he made a major approach adjustment. Either way, I think riding the hot hand over sticking with a player with barely any track record in Aguilar/bad approach was the way to go here
    3) Ryon Healy or Christian Walker ROS?
    4) please rank for best overall player ROS: Austin Meadows, Kevin Kiermaier, Max Kepler

    C: JT Realmuto
    1B: Ryon Healy
    2B: Yoan Moncada
    3B: Manny Machado

    Grey!!!

    Great write-up, wrap and on a short night no less!

    a. Re-signed Mullins. Need cheap SBs so will keep him. I don’t mind him batting 9th, just leave him alone down there he might be able to do whatever he wants.

    b. Start Peralta tonight at LAA (Harvey)? My thinking is as follows.

    1. Pitching in a pitcher’s park;
    2. He’s facing Harvey so should be in line for the W if he gets to 5 INN;
    3. LAA bats have fallen asleep again
    4. I’m desperate for Ks
    5. At least he can strike out 7-8-9 hitters twice

    c. Abbott and Costello quote of the day for April 9

    [The dice sketch]

    Abbott: Did you ever play dice?
    Costello: No.
    Abbott: (Turns to friends and winks) Oh well I’d like to show you Lou.
    Costello: O.K.
    Abbott: There’s numbers on these dice from one to six. You roll them out
    on the blanket and if you get a six and a one, that’s a natural. you win.
    A four and a three, that’s a natural. You win.
    Costello: Well that’s all you do. Win.
    Abbott: Well, no.
    Costello: You mean you can lose too.
    Abbott: Yes, once in a while. If you roll a two and a one, that’s craps.
    You lose. If you roll two sixes, that’s craps. You lose. In other words–
    Costello: You can win and you can lose.
    Abbott: That’s all there is to it. Now is that simple?
    Costello: Can I play?
    Abbott: You wanna play?
    Costello: Yeah.
    Abbott: O.K. Here you are. (hands Costello the dice)
    Costello: What are these?
    Abbott: Dice.
    Costello: What do I do with those?
    Abbott: Well you roll them out on the blanket.
    Costello: O.K.
    Abbott: Now what happens if you roll a seven? What do you win?
    Costello: I win.
    Abbott: Well what do you win?
    Costello: Nothing.
    Abbott: You don’t want to win nothing. So we’ll put some money on it
    just to make it interesting.
    Costello: I don’t like to gamble.
    Abbott: We’ll call it bank night.
    Costello: If my mom found out I was gambling, she’d put soap in my mouth.
    Abbott: Call it bank night. Your mother plays bank night. All right. Put
    your money down.
    Costello: O.K.
    Abbott: Alright. Seven you win, craps you lose.
    Costello: O.K. Here I go. (Covers his eyes and rolls dice) WHEE! (rolls
    a seven) I WIN!!! (goes to pick up the money)
    Abbott: Wait. You don’t pick it up right away.
    Costello: I don’t?
    Abbott: Not right away.
    Costello: But i do get to pick it up?
    Abbott: Oh yes.
    Costello: you mean i leave it lying there.
    Abbott: Just for the time being.
    Costello: Until it gets up to my chin.
    Abbott: oh yes.
    Costello: Then i send it down by truck.
    Abbott: You can do it anyway you want. So you like it so far?
    Costello: Oh it’s a good game.
    Abbott: How much do you want to shoot for now?
    Costello: Fade that.
    Abbott: (smacks costello as if he’s hustling him) What’s this “fade that”?
    Costello: What did i say something wrong?
    Abbott: You said it too darn right.
    Costello: I heard it at the Rinky Dinks.
    Abbott: What’s the Rinky Dinks.
    Costello: The club where i belong.
    Abbott: Have you played before?
    Costello: They wouldn’t let me play. i’m too young. i saw the guys at the
    Rinky Dinks. They had sugar and they put black marks on them and i heard a
    kid go “WHEE” and i heard “fade that”. Is that a bad word?
    Abbott: No, it’s alright. Just as long as you didn’t play the game before.
    Costello: No, too young. Starting tuesday i’m going out with girls.
    Abbott: Oh, sure. I thought you played the game. O.K. go ahead.
    Costello: My turn again?
    Abbott: Yep. Seven you win, Craps you lose.
    Costello: (covers his eyes and rolls dice) WHEE! (rolls seven) SEVEN
    AGAIN!
    Man #1: I think it’s beginners luck.
    Abbott: Hey that’s it. Beginners luck. How much do you want to shoot for
    now?
    Costello: Let it Ride.
    Abbott: (smacks Costello again as if he was hustling him)
    Costello: What’s the matter i heard that at the Rinky Dinks. I heard a guy
    say that. Is that bad?
    Abbott: Have you played this game before? don’t lie to me louie.
    Costello: They won’t let me play.
    Abbott: i hope not. O.K. There’s your dice. (hands costello dice)
    Costello: I’m winning fair. ain’t I?
    Abbott: I don’t know i have my doubts now.
    Costello: (Covers his eyes and rolls dice) WHEE! (rolls eleven) Eleven.
    what about that?
    Abbott: That don’t count. I don’t know why they put those numbers on the
    dice. don’t mean anything but i’ll give you another chance.
    Costello: (Covers his eyes and rolls dice) WHEE! (rolls four)
    Abbott: Four.
    Costello: Little Joe.
    Abbott: (smacks costello again)
    Costello: i heard it at the rinky dinks.
    Abbott: I ought to give it to you. If you roll a seven before you rolls
    that four you lose.
    Costello: (Covers his eyes and rolls dice) WHEE! (rolls three)
    Abbott: you lose.
    Costello: How come?
    Abbott: What did you roll the first time?
    Costello: Four.
    Abbott: What did you just roll?
    Costello: Three.
    Abbott: Four and three is what?
    Costello: Seven.
    Abbott: That’s all.
    Costello: He didn’t say anything about adding them up.
    Abbott: Well you do that. Now we’ll bet all the money. (rolls dice and
    rolls eleven) Eleven’s a natural.
    Costello: ELEVEN DON’T COUNT! You were nice to me and i’m nice to you so
    I’ll give you another chance. (smacks Abbott in the butt) That’s the only
    place i can hit you.
    Abbott: (rolls dice and rolls a six) Alright now six is my number. (rolls
    another six)
    Costello: SIX AGAIN! YOU LOSE! YOU LOSE! YOU LOSE!
    Abbott: i got my point.
    Costello: What did you roll first?
    Abbott: six.
    Costello: What did you just roll?
    Abbott: Six.
    Costello: Six and six is twelve. CRAPS, BOXCARS, BIG BENIES!!!

    [Hope everyone knows the rules of craps. For the younguns, google it.]

        a. Poor Lou, except in this sketch Lou has the upper hand because he’s thrown the dice before.

        b. Thanks for the advice, still not 100% convinced. Saw how Trout’s adjustment with his feet after watching his 5 hit game in NYY has him all giddy about his improved stance.

        c. Leury Garcia available. Drop Kiermaier for him or just wait ’til Kiermaier gets injured which could happen today? I think I’m going to wait a little on Kiermaier, he finally seems to be living up to his potential.

    Hi, Grey the fantasy god and DT :)

    I’m in 12 teamer obp & sv+hd roto.
    What should I do with these players?

    1) Wheeler (hold/ sell low)
    2) Happ (hold/ sell low/ drop)
    3) Voit (hold/ drop)
    4) Hampson (hold/ drop)

    I’m already punting catchers, I’m picking up different guys everyday.
    My batting is low since Gennett & Stanton went to IL. But pitching pretty good.
    I have added Vogelbach & Verdugo from ww recently.
    Could V brothers be savior for me? or just part-timers?
    Thanks for reading.

    • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
      (link)

      I’d try and hold all those guys a little longer. Hampson at least for this week to see if he does anything with playing time now. Voit has a super low babip + great bb:k rate, he’ll be fine…

    Mancini seemed like a solid play at his ADP, I attributed a lot of his struggles last year to Dickwalter jerking him all over the lineup and an injury. Remarkably, Jake Bauers, a guy that hit .201 last season, was cut loose by the Rays so they could play Choi, was being drafted ahead of Trey.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      He also hit a lot of ground balls which had less to do with his manager, but he was a solid ADP play this year, that is true

        Fair point. Watched an interview with him before the season, said he swung less at first pitches, tried to think like a leadoff hitter, where he didn’t belong and it didn’t work out.

    Hi Grey,

    I came out of my draft pretty confident. its a 14 team roto 6×6 (we keep 5) with OPS, Holds and QS instead of Wins.

    Why less than 2 weeks later am I looking up at 13 other teams?? FML

    (Jo)e(ke)lly. I invested way too much into him, should I just bench him or has he gone full Rosenthal? and you know you should never go full Rosenthal.

    • Donkey Teeth

      I’d say that 4th 1B is pretty expendable.

            I don’t understand how anyone would think of drafting Miggy in any standard format. I think its nostalgia or simple name recognition. Might as well draft Jose Bautista too. My tip for such folks is: they won’t be any good in 2020 either.

            Maybe I can sell them some old baseball cards.

    Happy 2019 season Grey! I just realized I haven’t popped on the comments yet this year and instead have just been creeping around the site, like a silent assassin, taking in all of the gloriousness.

    Quick question for you in the early goings here. I love Profar for his eligibility at 1b,2B,SS,3B but he’s just been abysmal and its not like his upside is a 30/30 season. Would you drop him in a 12T H2H for Yandy Diaz? He’s a bench bat at the moment with Tim Anderson (dropped somehow first week) and Domingo Santana holding down the two UTIL spots.

    Thanks Grey! Great to be back for another season!!

    @Grey: Luis Urias called up yesterday. Had a forgettable 0-5 (2K) game, but did hit lead off.

    Add him and drop Hampson at MI in a 6×6 12-team H2H (BB is 6th category)… Or, hold Hampson just a little bit longer before cutting bait? Trying to be as patient as possible with Hampson since he’s got that tempting 10/30 upside.

        That’s exactly where I’m at, Grey. Unfortunately, my IL is clogged up and I don’t have any bench spots with Vlad, Alonso, and darvish there. The moral of the story is that David Dahl was not supposed to get hurt.

    12 team, H2H league. Standard ESPN with 10 hitting categories, nine pitching categories. I am a patient owner so April is not a time I second guess my draft picks. And I have a ton of injured guys right now so just treading water with a 9-9-1 record. That being said, the last few spots on my roster are always in play for a breakout potential player. Best on the wire: Desmond (154 ADP) and Swanson (254 ADP). Either worth a stab? Who are my drops if so? Thank you.

    Morning Grey!

    Was looking at Tildaddy’s numbers last night. 8 Walks to 7 Ks and a .157 BABIP. Last year’s BABIP was in the .350s. Once his BABIP normalizes to the .335 range or so, YOWZAAA!

    Thanks for calling the Ryu injury so soon. Was hoping to get a couple more starts outta him. What’s worse (or good in real baseball I guess) is they don’t think it’s a significant strain. Woulda just rather dropped him for C-Mart and let C-Mart take my DL spot.

    NL-Only H2H 5×5 (OBP)
    I’m rolling with Thames for his DH spot these next couple of days, but will drop him for Austin if he’s not taken off of Waivers. If I can’t get Austin who should I go for? Reynolds, Dietrich, or Pillar?

    Thanks!

      Acuna is 6/34 for .176 average. Maybe he sneezed during one swing and burped during another.

    Davis hitting his record comes at the same time as Camden Yards hitting a new personal low as well, almost down to 6500 attendees. At this rate when Davis finally hits a home run again there will be nobody in the outfield seats to get the ball so he can collect the memento himself after the game.

    Watched the Astros game and dang Tanaka looked sharper than I remember. He hit the same spot to right handed batters, outside bottom corner of the plate, about 80 pitches in a row it felt like.

      Only you can really answer this question based on your league history, the actual salaries and the rest of your team/# of keepers situation/roto vs H2H/league starting lineup requirements/etc.

      If Domingod and Huira are $1 each and Flaherty $2 that’s a world of difference from Domingod $18, Huira $4 and Flaherty $22.

        I drafted Hill and Ryu with the thought they’d equal one good pitcher over the year. I took Hill off my IL to put Ryu on with Trea having my other IL spot. Obviously Hill not pitching yet. Musgrove is available. Should I drop Ryu or Hill to pick up Musgrove or just hold off for now? I also have Boyd in a streamer spot. Should I drop any of those 3 for Musgrove?

      I’m in a similar spot with several of those players and some others. I have 4 IL guys with only 2 IL spots. What you need to do is cut Andujar right now. And also, purchase Rudy’s tools if you haven’t already and prepare for the grind. Injuries have been ridiculous so far, but I’m ready for the challenge.

      If this league isn’t for money than I dunno why you joined it anyways, so then I guess you can neglect all of my advice and go ahead and give up if you so desire.

    Marquez and Freeland are entirely two different pitchers. Marquez can dominate a lineup with his stuff. If you have him ranked as high as you do, why would you be worried to roll with him tonight against the Braves?

    Speaking of Freeland, I dropped him for Musgrove in my shallow 10-team standard roto that uses QS. Last year Freeland was a QS machine and has outperformed his peripherals every year, including in the minors. Thought he would do the same. His high BB/9 his first three starts, the okay start against the Marlins offense and struggling against the two quality lineups, I decided to pull the cord. I got Donkey Teeth’s assurance that was the right move. In order to feel at ease about it I need two keys to turn at once. What do you think, Grey? Musgrove be able to get past the 5th inning this year?

    • Grey

        That’s why I should ‘ve listened to you.

        How do you feel about Musgrove? Last year he couldn’t get QS, because he could rarely get into the 6th.

    Grey.
    Am I correct in my interpretation of your various columns & tools.

    For near-term player value: Use the weekly Top 100 Hitter / Pitcher columns

    For remainder of season: Use the Ranking Top 500 spreadsheet (which is frequently updated)

    wrt other Ranking products (e.g., Top 20 Catchers). These were provided for supporting draft decisions and, except for a comment due to injury/trade, are not actively maintained.

    Thanks.

        I just checked playerrater (ESPN 12 team) for my current dilemna (Profar; Schoop; McNeil) which I believe you rate in that order. It says:
        – Schoop: 98
        – Profar: 282
        – McNeil: 373

        Is the Schoop rating incorrect?

            I own McNeil and Profar/Schoop are FAs. Wouldn’t the playerrater be the most efficient way to support my decision?

                (link)

                Sorry to keep bothering everyone. That is the site I used; it indicates that Schoop is a Top-100 guy and that Profar/McNeil probably aren’t roster-able.

    @Grey: Is Clevinger a drop in my shallow league? 10-teamer – I can also choose to stash and drop one of my SAGNOF guys for a streamer/fill in if I decide to go that route:

    My list of remaining SPs are: Woodruff, Stripling, Marquez, Lucchesi, and Glasnow

    Only 1 IL spot with Lindor, Clevinger, and Dahl all vying for it…

                Mondesi, Betts, Benintendi, Story, Bellinger, Shaw, and Dahl

                Is this right? Just want to know if I should try to find someone who’s skillset is geared more towards SBs if I end up needing to add an OF.

    Clevingers bach has freed up a spot on my team, I already have 7 starters so im looking for a bat for the next 6-8 weeks. I need power. who do you like as a replacement?

    Voit
    Vogelbach
    Bill Clinton-Frazier
    Candy Diaz
    healy
    Kiermaier

    Thanks in advance!!!

      David Wright from Survivor? He’s lasting longer than I expected

        I meant the David Wright who will earn the equivalent of the last 15 Survivor winners combined this year. But Survivor DW will presumably do more baseball activities.

    Hey Grey and his donkey … Points league…. I have Josh Bell covering down for me until.yandy picks up third base then I move Healy back to 1b. Vogelbach looks like.he is taking walks too with is clutch. Take vogelbach over bell? I doubt I’m loosing much upside with Bell. Also Christian Walker is available. I’m not sure about his points league upside because if the walk/K ratio but if he smashes enough could cover down well. So to wrap this up:
    Vogelbach/Walker over bell/Healy ?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Donkey and I are independent — Bell over Vogelbach

    Did you see the Mullins hits? One of the triples was a grounder (and got the extra base on an error). That dude really has some wheels.

    Picked up Vogelbach in my CBS league after reading your recap. Now I am worried he gets no PT once he cools off.

    Notes on Baltimore: cheapest uber rides I’ve ever taken. I am talking like $4-5 Fri night to go 1.5 miles downtown to a bar. wtf. Also every Uber driver plays really loud hip hip music. To the point I could not hear them talking to me.

    Would you drop him for Chad Pinder who has 35 AB’s 2 HR / 7 RBI / .257? Or is he too much a platoon risk?

    Grey!!!

    So, I guess the 2-n Zimm love affair is finally over after just 2 starts. Too bad he couldn’t continue his excellent new approach this year. Got to hate it when someone makes a major change, an adjustment, fine or throwing more 4-seamers because they’re more effective, fine but a whole new approach? Can’t be good.

    Cheers,
    Ante

        Grey!!

        Yep, thank God I didn’t drink the cool aid. He was like 35% added in RCL’s, someone got sucker punched for sure. Alex Gordon is the next guy to give his owners the stinky finger, but with a hitter you can stop after 3 games of 0 fer 4 and not suffer too much. Zimmermann’s bad start will set you back like 2 weeks or 6 more or less good starts to ERA and WHIP, right?

    Grey,

    10 team, h2h, 6×5 including ops. Two questions.

    Just traded away Domingo Santana + Glasnow for Benintendi. 1. How’d I do?

    As soon as one owner found out I acquired Benintendi he asked if I’d trade Benintendi to him. He’s a Sox fan. 2. Would you trade Yadier + Benintendi for Realmuto + Javier Baez?

    My team is below.

    C – Yadier
    1 – Goldschmidt, Vogelbach
    2 – Albies, Villar
    3 – Arenado
    SS – Mondesi, Swanson
    OF – Trout, Yelich, Acuña, Benintendi, Mazara, Dahl

    SP – Scherzer, Corbin, Marquez, Lucchesi, Musgrove, Gibson, Matz, Kikuchi
    RP – Alvarado, Barnes, Greene

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds good, I’d take Baez

      • Charles Varon says:
        (link)

        Thanks! This is a keep forever league. But I’m assuming since both guys are young, you’d still prefer Baez over Benintendi?

        • Grey

          (link)

          Yes

          • Charles Varon says:
            (link)

            If he changes his mind and just wants to do Benintendi for Baez and take the catchers out of the deal would you still do it? Obviously I’d like to include the catchers so I can send him Yadier for Realmuto, but if he just wants to keep it Benintendi for Baez would you do it?

    @Grey, 11 team 5×5 roto

    After losing Clevinger my staff is: Wheeler, Freddy P, Matz, McHugh, Woodruff and a streaming spot. My ERA and WHIP are not great at the moment due to several rough starts from Wheeler, Ed-Rod and Eovaldi. That said, there are plenty of streaming pitchers available.

    My hitting is pretty solid:

    C – Alfaro
    1B – Rizzo
    2B – Albies
    3B – Baez
    SS- Bogaerts
    OF – Yelich
    OF – Hoskins
    OF – Inciarte
    UTIL – Domingo
    BN – Shaw
    BN – Dahl

    Would you try to stream with Clevinger out? Or make a move for a SP?

    Would you trade Rizzo for Sale?

    • The Great Knoche says:
      (link)

      What are your options if you move Rizzo. I think Sale is junk.

      • Bregxhit says:
        (link)

        I’ve got a lot of lineup versatility. I can essentially trade any of Rizzo, Albies or Bogaerts and then just slot Shaw into my starting lineup as a replacement

    Aaaaaaaaaauugggh!

    (Spoiler alert; I was that dumbass. Be patient with your early rosters kids. Don’t be a dumbass like me. This PSA brought to you by the dumbass association of America DAA)

        My team is fairly stacked, but c’mon. That’s just awful timing. I might get him back if he keeps sitting against lefties.

        Alsoim far more bothered by Clevinger. Is there a term for when a player leaves a start, and you’re all worried, and the good news drops that he’s fine & even says something like “no way I’m missing my next start!” & ya get all relieved, and then days later terrible awful news breaks about it being ~2 month injury?

        If not, there should be. Gah

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        i’m not kidding though (and i’m sure you know it’s coming grey’d one).

        i’ll say on how many ask to how long to hold severino is over/under of say 7.5, and the parlay of those saying that and whining about their bad injury luck (this counts even if the same commenter mentions his/her “bad luck” in a different post, as long as it’s tomorrow) is at 2.

        as for those ONLY mentioning their “bad luck” and mentioning severino as part of that, i’ll go with 4.5.

    20 team dynasty. QS added. lost both of ryu/clevinger in back to back days. 1400 max innings and we have 5 RP slots. but am now left with (it was an auction and i seriously couldn’t believe how deep i came out of this): nazi in exile, matz, happ, ed-rod, turnbull (added lately, was best SON guy left out there).

    1. think any of c-ferg or d-sant (LAD) have a short term roster slot till either kershaw/hill are back?

    2. this best ranking (i now need 2 of these, or stream, but that list is weak as shit too): pena, leblanc boss leblanc, smyly, wainwrong, t.ross (SON really hates him), vargas. or just follow SON here (no moves limits since it’s a roto, not h2h). obviously none of these are good of course, was doing quite well (1st place) but losing at least 2 out of best 4 (or better depending on where ryu is ranked when healthy) is rough, esp ace clevinger for about 2 months.

      1. Not especially, but Caleb 1st 2. Follow SON

    @Grey 11 team, 5×5 roto

    Piggybacking off my question above, I’m looking to trade for an arm with Clevinger going down.

    My staff: Wheeler, Freddy P, Matz, McHugh, Woodruff and a streaming spot.

    My hitting:

    C – Alfaro
    1B – Rizzo
    2B – Albies
    3B – Baez
    SS- Bogaerts
    OF – Yelich
    OF – Hoskins
    OF – Inciarte
    UTIL – Domingo
    BN – Shaw
    BN – Dahl

    I’ve got two offers, which would you do?

    Go for cheap pitching and trade Wade Davis for Tyler Glasnow?
    or
    Replace Clevinger with another #1 fantasy starter and trade Rizzo for Buehler or Corbin? I can slot Travis Shaw into my 1B position.

    Thanks a bunch.

      Glasnow and figure out your staff with waivers

    anybody that had ANY kind of prop on mitch F’ing garver being the main culprit on why degrommit won’t set the consecutive QS record in MLB history (already tied with bob gibson with 26 going into today) please move to the front, get your lottery ticket money and then we have your soul forever. have fun trying to use those automatic soul-motion sensing doors for the rest of your life.

      That would’ve been a nice prop!

    Stripling continues to be around the high 80s/low 90s with his FB… should I be worried? Caleb Smith, Steven Matz, and pitchers of that tier continue to stare me down.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I’d be worried

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        Follow up Q then – Should I swap him out for a $1 condom: McHugh/Cahill or Goose Pimple like Strahm, Caleb Smith, or Pineda… There are obstetrician’s available: Skaggs, Gonzales and Matz

          I’d play matchups in a shallow league

            I only get 6 moves a week so streaming is limited

    Maikel Franco or Schoop ROS?

    • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
      (link)

      franco world empire (but not close to as much as the other one coming to supplant his) if you can easily make this choice. schoop will still be out there in any league where this is a choice.

      • Let's Play Two says:
        (link)

        Translation please, Eli Man? :)

        • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
          (link)

          franco being the answer (the other franco who will be better than m.franco is wander franco TB currently top 5 prospect to start year, will likely be #1 in a year).

      • Let's Play Two says:

        Translation? :)

    Dropping any of Woodruff, Gibson for Fried, Pivetta? Hold?

    • Grey

      Woodruff for Pivetta

  161. Hello Rockview says:

    Bruce or Adam Jones ROS for a bench spot ?

    Head to head

    Lucchesi-Gibson-Marquez. What a triumvirate!

      Try adding Peralta in there…..

  163. pager24 says:
    (link)

    Man.. I guess I just need to go ahead and start Max Fried? Son of a bench! Doesn’t get much worse than @cubs and @coors for ur first two starts- and absolutely cake walks. On a side note, likely que a 3 innings 6 ER and 3.5 WHIP his next start ha

    I have Kyle Tucker stashed on my Minor league spot. Is he gonna get a shot with Houston? or is there another Minors guy closer not named Vlad, Bart, Bichette, Cease, Whitley, Reyes, McKay, Honeywell, Soroka, Senzel, Matias, D.Hernandez, Touki, Ramos, Adell, Kirilloff, Sheffield, Luzardo, Hiura, Lewis, Rodgers, Phillips, Puk, Franco, De La Cruz, Gorman, or Greene?

    Is it worth keeping Matt Olson on the IL? when he comes back, hamate bone sufferers tend to have the power sapped.

    • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
      (link)

      depends on amount of DL slots for sure on him. but yeah, so far he’s by far the worst injured hitter. unless you draft super early AND overdraft catchers, as salvy perez clearly wins if you do both of those things. honestly though, depending on what you spent on olson he could end up being a worse pick from that exact injury, since you’ll hold him all year and probably not drop, even when the quite possible “power comes back, but not till like august 26th” whereas with salvy he might not have cost as much and you know to drop him unless dynasty AND you have a bunch of DL slots.

  166. Urias or Wheeler ROS?

    • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
      (link)

      thinking he’ll def say wheeler hasn’t lost that much value after a few bad starts after last year and this year’s ranking.

    I’m having a hard time dropping Renfroe (again) for Jesus Aguilar… help me out

    oh, and thanks guys for jinxing Marquez, but did you have to splatter that stuff on Lucchesi?

    • Crazy J says:
      (link)

      or I could dump Beckham, was really hoping to score a trade there but the hammy is killing the hype.

      • Crazy J says:
        (link)

        I lost the waiver bid anyhow. I used mine up on Kimbrel (genius!). Sucks going first pick, except that Trout thing, but idiots have dumped Starling and E. Rosario and I got to watch it happen. Running at 108.5 points so far, so I can’t complain (any more than I have).

    Like sheep, we all run from Bruce despite being one year removed from relevancy. Leads league in home runs. I dropped him after he started so poorly. Baaaaa

    • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
      (link)

      didn’t he do the same thing to start the year, no AVG with HR’s? checked. he BB’d twice in 2 asian games with no hits, so you thought to own him but drop him after 2 total games. i guess that would be called “running” from him.
