Didi, Didi, can’t you see, sometimes your home runs hypnotize me?  Or how about, Gre-Gre-Gregorius?  Gre-Gre-Gregorius… Gregorius sung by Duran Duran or Biggie work for me.  Fun fact!  Duran Duran is the past tense of Da Doo Run Run Da Doo Run Run.  Bit a of a trivia whiz, though I did need to Google to see if it was spelled whiz or wiz.  Did you know Truvia was discovered by someone sniffing artificial sweetener off a Trivial Pursuit card?  Any hoo!  Didi Gregorius went goofy time, there’s always money in the banana stand, crying at the end of The Last American Virgin but with tears of joy, with himself yesterday — 4-for-4, 3 runs, 8 RBIs and two homers (1, 2). His first homer went 346 feet, which is almost three and half Cespedes.  I was way off Didi in the preseason, but that was almost (exactly) five games ago, let’s forget about that!  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Trayce ThompsonYankees claimed him from waivers.  Trayce was left for dead by the Dodgers, who were calling him, Chalk Outline.

Giancarlo Stanton – 0-for-5 with 5 Ks as the Yanks scored 11 — what a ticker tease!   Oh, who am I kidding *fans self with Chinese hand fan*  He teases me every which way!  He still looks sexy, even wearing that platinum sombrero.

Jordan Montgomery – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners (4 BBs), 4 Ks.  Somehow, he was able to keep Matt Duffy, Jesus Sucre, Daniel Robertson, Rob Refsnyder, Adeiny Hechavarria and the corpse of Carlos Gomez off balance.  Okay, I kid.  I do like him — no Jo-Mo! — but this was not the toughest matchup.

Chris Archer –  5 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 6.55.  Rough going to start for Archer, but don’t worry he goes to Fenway next.  *insert blinking white guy meme*

Matthew Boyd – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 1 K.  Yesterday, Stream-o-Nator predicted a line of 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners.  Damn, way off!

Jakob Junis – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks.  His middle name should be Bokaj.  How awesome would that be?  You don’t need to answer a loud, I can’t hear you anyway.  But Jakob Bokaj would be bonkers awesome.  Also, bonkers awesome yesterday was Jakob Bokaj, however, it was vs. the Tigers.  I watched yesterday’s game, which doubled its audience.  My takeaway is the Royals and Tigers are going to lose a lot of games this year.  Not a ‘hot take,’ per se, Thomas Keller, but worth noting.  I did stream Junis yesterday, and I’m not dropping him yet.

Bryce Harper – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer.  *in a low whisper* Have a historic season, please, please, please.

A.J. Cole – 3 2/3 IP, 10 ER.  Wow, A.J. Cole doesn’t burn clean.  I hope Trea didn’t get black lung and jeopardize his 60 SB season.  The Braves were good, and they got Cole.  Figure that out, Santa!

Freddie Freeman – 2-for-3, 3runs, 4 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  …and this ball you cannot cage.  That’s Freeman.

Preston Tucker – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer, and now Tucker and Lane Adams, the Acuna-to-be platoon has two homers.  The Braves best not get any ideas.

Dexter Fowler – 2-for-5 and his 1st homer.  I hope Fowler gets hurt.  Sorry, y’all, I’m ruthless aka without ruth.  Harrison Bader was called up and I need him to play.

Tommy Pham – 3-for-5, 2 runs and a slam (1) and legs (2).  Damn, is he seeing 20/20 again?

Jack Flaherty – 5 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 9 Ks.  I love, love, lurve me some Flaherty, but Wainwright is due back this week.  I’d wait to see what the Cards do, but it doesn’t bode well for Flaherty.

Marcell Ozuna – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and a homer.  OZUNA hit first home run with Cards.  OZUNA happy with new team.  OZUNA favorite childhood game was 52-pickup.

Ryan Braun – 2-for-5 and his 2nd homer.  In related news, Domingo Santana shopped online for his cousin, Miercoles, wedding shower.  It’s today.

Nelson Cruz – Hit the DL with a sprained ankle.  Mariners’ depth will come in handy now as Daniel Vogelbach and the 84-year-old Ichiro will see more regular at-bats.  Too bad Ichiro didn’t let his nails grow since he was a rookie.  For no reason other than it would be pretty rad.

Dee Gordon – 3-for-5, 1 run and two steals (1, 2).  Those were the first two steals of the season in the majors.  Okay, no, but it feels like that sometimes.

Ty Blach – 4 1/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 5.79.  After the game, Blach said, “My nether juices only flow when facing the best pitcher in baseball.  I need competition, dammit!”

Joe Panik – 2-for-4 and his 3rd homer.  It’s a Launch Angle Revolution!  It’s better than Dance Dance Revolution with less awkward overbites!  Listen, or read as the case may be, I don’t think Panik is suddenly a 35-homer guy, but I just picked him up in case he is.  I wonder if now there will be a Widespread Panik pickup.

Evan Longoria – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer.  Aw, shucks, it was three games in and you wanted reason to drop him.  This homer doesn’t help, huh?

Josh Donaldson – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  I liked him better when his arm was an extra in The Walking Dead.

Aledmys Diaz – 3-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer in as many games.  Was a hot schmotato, but he left with back spasms.  Hopefully he didn’t catch Mat Gamelitis, the disease that debilitates a player just as they look to be breaking out.

Tim Anderson – 3-for-4, 3 runs and a slam (3) and double legs (2, 3).  If he breaks out as I predicted this preseason, I will be accepting your freshly shorn roses at my feet.  (No comment about Gausman!)

Avisail Garcia – 3-for-5 and his 1st homer.  Watch the White Sox not even be that bad of a team this year.  Seriously.

Carlos Correa – 2-for-2, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  Apparently, his toe is better.  Aw, what a big boy!

Josh Reddick – 2-for-4, 6 RBIs and his 1st and 2nd homer.  One homer was a grand salami with its brand name:  Reddick.

Justin Verlander – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.31.  If you drafted only Astros starters, you’d be doing better in your fantasy league than you currently are.  And by ‘you’ I mean me.

Jonathan Schoop – 3-for-5, 3 runs and his 1st homer.  On the reals, the O’s look listless.  And, unlike the Red Sox, who are also scuffling, I don’t see where the O’s come out of it.  *intern whispers in my ear*  Oh, that’s right, Michael Saunders!  *intern whispers again*  What do you mean that was sarcastic?  Saunders was great in 2007 in the minor leagues.

Christian Villanueva – 3-for-3, 4 runs, 5 RBIs and his 1st, 2nd and 3rd homer. Villanueva translates to Newtown, and, coincidentally, Alex Jones denies these three homers happened.  Obviously, he won’t do this every night, but he has seven homers in 14 career games, and 20 homers last year in Triple-A.  His homers last night seemed pretty legit too.  It’s hard for me to go full Monty on a Padres hitter this quickly, but I’m definitely cyclops’ing him with a monocle.

Wil Myers – Dealing with triceps soreness.  Far from the bust of Heyward, but, man, the both of them from original perception of them when they were called up to now.

Tyson Ross – 6 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 2 Ks.  One of the last surviving Hodgepadres.  A breed of player that’s on the endangered species list with the flat-billed pitchypus.

Jake Lamb – Hit the DL with a shoulder sprain.  Shame about that Lamb shoulder. Hopefully they can salvage the marrow, that’s the best part.  Deven Marrero started at 3rd for the Diamondbacks yesterday.  He’s the answer to the trivia question, “Which MLB player’s family doesn’t even know their relative plays major league baseball?”  Maybe the D’Bags shouldn’t have been so harsh to Yasmany Tomas.

David Peralta – 2-for-5 and his 1st homer.  He’s not especially remarkable.  He’s decent, not bad at all, but, for whatever reason, he’s one of my favorite players.  Always underrated, and gives you that Ender Inciarte-type ya-ya.

Zack Godley – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks.  Godley outside the humidor, “Guys, look, it’s Cher!”  When everyone turns, he turns up the knob to eleven.

Jose Urena – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.91.  Much better in his 2nd start against another top five offense.  Who made the Marlins’ schedule?  Are they just trying to suck the life out of them?  Well, they’ve been sucked already, and not in the good way.  Urena, frankly — R-E-S-P-E-C-T! — isn’t worth much outside of NL-Only leagues, but there he kinda interests me.

Andrew Benintendi – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 1 RBI and his 1st steal.  The Alex Cora Experiment to make the entire Red Sox team into a slap-hitting, stolen base machine is nearly complete.

Ben Lively – 5 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.18.  Lively is doing okay so far.  Looks like he’s had a lot of work done since he first appearance in the show.

Anthony Swarzak – Hit the DL.  His last name sounds too much like swastika, so good riddance!

Matt Harvey – 5 IP, 0 ER, 2 baserunners, 5 Ks.  He was even getting some close calls behind the plate, after sleeping with the ump’s wife.

Jose Ramirez – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer.  Are you happy now, Jo-Ram owners?  I mean, the panicking after four games is crazy town, population:  you.  *looks at waiver replacements for Lindor*

Garret Richards – 5 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners (4 BBs), 9 Ks.  Early on, Garrett Richards was pitching like Michael Richards does standup, but he settled down and got that Seinfeld reunion (totally lost myself in that metaphor!).

Luis Valbuena – 1-for-2, 3 runs and his 1st homer.  He has never hit one homer without following it the next day with another homer.  I know, logic says that means he’s going to hit 158 homers this year, but that’s not how my logic works.

Mike Trout – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer.  No joke, I feel like it was just a few games ago he was 0-for-6 (and it was), and you blink and this guy has multiple homers and a decent average.

Matt Shoemaker – Hit the DL with a forearm strain.  Parker Bridwell was called up to replaced him.  Parker Bridwell sounds like a polygamous Mormon.  “Yo, you know Jebediah?  He brides well.”  Bridwell had a 5+ K/9 last year, so no thank you, sister-wife.

Shohei Ohtani – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer.  Madison Bumgarner bought him a Yamaha bike.  Welcome to Pitchslap Club.

Cameron Rupp – Signed with the Rangers.  Blondie’s fantasy team, “Rupp-ture,” is looking better!

Cole Hamels – 5 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 3.38.  Um, I mean, WUT.  Listen, or listicle if Buzzfeed is reading, I hate Hamels with a passion, but if he found his stuff that he lost last year, I’m fine going back in on him.

Joey Gallo – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer.  Every notice how some players change their name to something completely different, but no one ever gets more mature, like Joey to Joseph.  “Hey, don’t forget my hard contact!”  Okay, Nicholas Castellanos.

Rougned Odor – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs. Maybe it just feels this way, but I think this is Odor’s first multi-hit game in two years.

Chad Pinder – 2-for-4 and his 1st homer.  Chad Pinder is the PG-13 version of Doug Fister.

    Grey!!

    Loved it.

    a. Day8. Started bad, added Reddick and by mistake dropped Mancini. Wanted to drop Davidson. Then tried to add Mancini dropping Davidson. Am 5th in the queue. Pray for me.

    b. Then as if the day wasn’t bad enough… I had my wallet stolen on the busy Athens subway. There was crowd, I didn’t feel it. Had a few bank cards (already blocked the accounts as the thieves tried to access my bank account in like faster than DHL). Lost the cash in my wallet (about 200$) so I am depressed about that.

    Is it time to dropp Happ (a 12-team mixed keeper league that is RCL-like, i.e., lots of spot starts and batty calls). Dude has set twice against lefties this week… playing slightly over half the time.

    I’ve got Odor so I can cobble together an OF instead of a 2B (hopefully) in his place.

    Thanks!

    What’s going on with the closer situation for the LA Angels? Parker came in the 8th during a blow out win and had only pitched 2 days earlier? Will Middleton get the next closer look? Scociasia is impossible!

    • OaktownSteve says:
      (link)

      @Ben W:

      It seems pretty clear it won’t be Bedrosian. He’s pitching lower leverage and hasn’t looked good. Middleton pitched the 8th in a save situation putting him second in the pecking order and then the next day he came in and bailed out the presumptive closer in the 9th and earned a save. It seems very likely to me that Middleton would get the next shot at it. Another wild card is they might go Jim Johnson cuz ya know…closer experience. They could give Parker another shot at it, but he’s been super shaky and he had a terrible spring. I’d say it’s 80% Middleton. He should be rostered

    • Hater Bell

      Grey says:

      @Ben W: Middleton seems next in line for now, could change by Friday

        @Peacecoast:

        Unfortunately no. He had one of the biggest velocity drops in the spring as well. I’m kind of bummed. It now looks like the information on the velocity was out there in the spring and I somehow just missed it.

        @Grey: sounds like the same type of thought process in which that flighties from “otani is the next babe ruth” to after he doesn’t hit that well in spring training and gets hit around once in spring training “otani sucks” and in some cases a league full of these guys allows somebody like me to NOT NOTICE HOW HE WASN’T drafted in the 1st round and gets him near the end of the 2nd in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. god i love these people.

    Should I try trading Wil Myers for Aarain nola
    I have a sick offense and need pitching. I have votto , and for outfield I have Yelich, marte , and Hoskins. So as a utility I don’t need Myers it’s a bit of overkill. Since I have sydaguard as my number one, but only, snell, Corbin, pom, they’re my 2nd 3rd fourth.

    • Ganggreen says:

      @Ganggreen: on offense I have d Murphy, Contreras, c seager, lamb that fill the rest of my daily lineup. MY bench is Duval, longoria, mazara, Brian, Anderson, and him Anderson. MAYBE I SHOULD TRY TRADING VOTTO FOR any top 5 pitcher.

    Could one of the reasons that the Padres are so bad be that they don’t give a guy with obvious HUGE power at-bats in favor of starting retreads like Chase Headley? Maybe even the (maxi)Pads management will get it now that he’s hit 3 homers in one game, but that might be giving them too much credit.

    I watched Godley’s start. All I can say is, thank God for the humidor! He gave up some real hard contact and had a pretty good defensive performance behind him. Still, his hard curve is an excellent pitch when he can throw it consistently for strikes. And not every team is going to have as many good hitters as the Dodgers do. He’s still one I’ll have to keep the baby monitor on, but for now, I’m going to continue starting him.

    JoMo is awesome. Bullpen failed him, which is ironic, since one of the reasons I picked him is that his bullpen was supposed to ensure he’d get some cheap Wins!

    Great read as always Grey.

    Was offered Lorenzo Cain in exchange for Machado. My team is already a little light on power but my outfield is trash and I still have Devers, Josh Harrison, and Eduardo Escobar with 3B eligibility. As you said the O’s look terrible and I would really love to shore up my outfield. Would you take the deal?

    Thanks!!

      @Chicken Benintendies: I would not trade my 1st/2nd round pick 6 days into the season because the rest of his team doesn’t look good. Escobar and Harrison are not good Machado replacements. Get a cheaper OF.

            @VinWins: still yet to hear anybody describe why they’d knowingly want to have all players lock at the gametime for the FIRST game rather than just each player’s gametime. most RCL settings (except moves limits in roto leagues rather than just games started for hitters limits) are great, that one i can’t find why anybody would intentionally do that to themselves when they don’t have to. it’s like being in a weekly lock league when you do have internet access daily. or use a wheelchair all the time when your legs work just fine. intentionally handicapping yourself for no benefit (that i can see anyway)

    I will also report that the site is a bit slow. I thought it was my internet at first but I scrolled through the comments.

    Anyways, I kinda had a crazy idea. In a 12 team, mixed keeper league, would you trade Rizzo for Acuna, Ohtani and/or Willie Calhoun? If the other party goes along with it, would giving up Rizzo for this basket of promises be a move that is out of left field but good in the short and long term?

    Lots of good talk during Rockies broadcast last night from Mcgwire regarding Villaneuva. Talking about how he got lost as a Cubs prospect because of the others around him and he really does have 60+Grade power. Could see him in a straight platoon with Headley going forward.

    Also Kyle Freeland other than Villaneuva looked really good. Added a slow curve to mix and really kept hitters off balance. See him as a non-coors stream in most places.

      @Savoy Special: in some instances, such as IF the pitcher in question is just plain a LOT better (the holds guy on the good team). like a.miller, he’s worth more than shitty closers or closers on shitty teams for holds/saves. mcgee (unless we’re talking TB mcgee for like 2 years) doesn’t qualify as being better (or much better anyway) than kelvin.

    Streamonator question. I use it. Love it. Generally don’t draft SP’s high because of it.

    Is there an advantage to waiting until more games are played out this season, thus allowing for more current data gathering, to start using it hard? Maybe a question for Rudy and something that’s pointed out elsewhere but I missed it. Either way, thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I prefer to wait a little to stream

    • I think there’s a minor advantage. I think pitcher success is so dependent on health and that becomes clearer w/ a couple of starts.

    8 team AL Only 5×5 Standard Roto:

    Give Kluber for Correa?
    **Correa can be kept thru 2019

    Who’s value is higher in this setup? Love Kluber, but I’ve won the league in the past without a true ace. Staff would be a bunch of unproven guys with upside – Clev, Jormont, Gausman, Lopez, Junis, Gibson. Also have Andrew Miller and Betances (still believe he can turn it around) to boost K’s and get occasional wins.

    Thinking about doing my Kluber, Beckham, Grichuk for his Correa, Willie Calhoun.

      @Brown L: I like Reddick for the 5-spot in a stacked lineup. Should be more consistent, too. And I’ve read that he might bat 2nd in some games, switching with Bregman. My $.02, but i think Reddick has shown more. I like Kapler but I don’t trust him, and he’s a 7-8 hitter.

    2. Needing a save, and it’s the 8th inning inna 1-2-3 run game, and in the top/bottom of the inning the leading team puts up a 3-4-5 spot, killing your save chance”

    I had an open spot so I also added panik. Do you think there is something to this aka Daniel Murphy who didn’t hit for power early either. He like panik is a good hitter with control of the strike zone. I was looking for info on this but have seen anything yet. He did talk about making some adjustment in spring with his new hitting coach who was with the Astros and did the same thing with altuve who was also a guy that hit like 7 hr a year.

    This may be a meh trade but because I’m interested in Jose Martinez I’m considering it. I trade Rizzo for Jose Ramirez & Jose Martinez. I’ll have to drop someone like Faria, Gohara, or R Lopez to complete the deal.

    12 Team H2H Points league.

    Watching the Rays-Yankees game. Snell is all over the place today. Stuff looks good, but his command is off. His pitches are either clearly out of the zone or catch too much of the plate. Already up to 77 pitches through three innings.

    Severino looks as good as anyone I’ve seen this year. Fastball is an easy 97 with late movement. Runs in on righties and tails away from lefties. Slider is a wipeout pitch. Change is a solid third offering. Lots of swings and misses and grounders. Wish I had more than one share.

    to anybody that drafted sunday santana at his this year ADP (braun was just cheap all over compared to OPS rater’s expectations so no whining there) this rotoworld note attached to braun being benched today should’ve been attached since it so very much succinctly says it:

    “Brewers have to sit someone one of Braun, Santana or Thames every night in games they don’t play in an American League park. It wouldn’t be a surprise if Milwaukee made a move at some point to correct this, but it doesn’t appear to be coming anytime soon.”

    Yoooooo

    So I think I made a sweet trade today and I want to tell you what it was even though maybe you don’t really care… but maybe us readers are your fantasy children and you care about each of our teams? Grey will you be my fantasy daddy?

    Anyway you used some of my material in your article so I feel that is fair payment for having to sift through my unfunny comments and answer my quizmastering.

    oh ya the trade! I traded Braun and Robertson (svs + holds league) for Marte and Ohtani… I heard your podcast and I liked what I heard about Ohtani and I knew the owner auto drafted and probably doesn’t really like Ohtani. I’m so pumped on fantasy baseball right now who needs drugs when you have this! (I do I love my drugs but is pot really a drug).

    Also sorry about the poop bro… but sometimes life is full of shit

    hey that’s in my name!

    Oh lastly I finished Gomorrah and it was fun and will be missed… My wife kept saying different characters were gonna kiss when they got super close. We started playing a game of are they Gay or Italian haha. She doesn’t like when I pinch her cheek and kiss my fingers like Genny

    That’s a tough dbacks lineup.

      @Steve: 30 team leagues, not 20’s though (unless maybe if everybody has like 7 in a 20)

    anybody that follows twatter and baseball news remember this name he outright made up rosie signing with MIA, and it just didn’t occur. somebody either played a joke on this guy or he’s just a liar, either way the credibility is gone.

    oh and watched sneaky pete season 2 a few weeks back, one thing stood out MASSIVELY for the first few episodes for sure, and other times too, characters CLEARLY were up for like 2 full days at a time and never looked completely F’d up as they would certainly be. the first time when the son of the hitman (hitman himself) took grandpa to find his dead dad’s car, that took like at least 40 or so hours. unlike a lot of shows where even if the next episode is the next day there’s some proof or at least likelihood that they slept, in this season it would go episode to episode usually just minutes after the last one ended, and oftentimes this would bleed days into nights into days or whathaveyou.

      Yeah, I didn’t love the 2nd season… Felt rushed, and not just in story time

    yeah i think you can go on ahead and assume your career is just about over when all 3 of belt/panda/b.crawford all HR off of you in the same inning in SF’s park.

    If forced to make a guess as to when Acuna and Calhoun will be called up, what would be your best guess? Acuna drafted everywhere (including by me a couple places), but I could stash Calhoun in about 4 leagues….should I?

    Dealt Danny Duffy for Notorious DiDI today. Idea was to upgrade from Beckham at MI. Did I sell low & buy high or about even money?

    Something seems not right about Duffy. Didi hitting 4-5 for the Spankees…I hate making trades week 1. Talk me off the ledge. heh

      It boils down to who do you think is going to be the better long term keeper
