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?”

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.

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.

@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.

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.

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.

obv grey should be better at this bet than probably anybody else.

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?

@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?

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

Acuna, Alex Gordon, Eloy Jimenez, Hunter Renfroe, and Trout. I do have 1b/of eligible Jake Bauers in my U spot, also.

Is Pete Alonso and Musgrove too much to give up for Gallo? Not sure what a fair offer would be for a guy who hits .200. It’s a standard 5×5 roto league.

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

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?

Cheers,
Ante

Schoop doesn’t look good. He’s only got 23 AB’s with a whopping 3 R and 1 RBI hitting in the lower part of a good lineup.

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?

With Clevenger on the IL who should I pick up? Burnes, Thornton, Lasagne,

Also with Dahl’s injury should I drop Ian Happ who I have been holding onto and pick up Mullins, Dietrich, Almora Jr, or hope to get Heyward off waivers. I have Palka on my bench too.

Thanks!

Couple of questions after all of these injuries.

1. Best pickup to cover for Clevinger? Shoemaker, Peralta, C.Smith, Urias, Eflin

2. Any others outside of the pickup above that we like more than Woodruff?

3. Best bench pickup for overall value? Aquilar, Vogelbach, Walker, Luis Urias, Frazier

Thanks!

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 pickup posey if he was on waivers? I’m riding no catcher in a 12 teamer. Don’t have many guys to drop due to injury but im leaning on strippling being the sacrificial lamb.

Looks like the book is out on Odor. Up in the zone hard, no catchie uppie. Is Kiki my new 2b? Can he play 162 and give me top 10? Ok to drop Odor and spec on Urius. SD looks a year early in the early stages. See if it holds. Want shares anywhere I can. Last years champ did it with Atl bats. Maybe SD can be that in 2019?
