(NOTE: THIS POST WAS RELEASED EARLY THIS WEEK ON OUR PATREON. IT’S $10/MONTH)

Dustin May aka The Giant Human Carrot last May yelled Mayday and everyone was like, “Okay, cool, he’s psyching himself up!” That was not it, he was calling for help. May, um, made the right choice to undergo Tommy John surgery. Better to ‘Suck it up, buttercup,’ and buy Dr. James Andrews an 18-inch Rolex to hang from his neck like Flavor Flav vs. trying to rehab by injecting fat from Bartolo’s ass into his arm. Now, 15 months later, May’s yelling Mayday once again, but this time it’s like Dre yelling Dre Day and he looks flat-out dominant in the minors during his rehab, and the Dodgers could use another starter. May, uh, may rejoin the Dodgers after one more rehab start. Usually don’t love the “pitchers returning from major injury” flyer, but May is an ace, and The Giant Human Carrot could be a difference maker the rest of the way. Remember, you’re no bunny ’til some bunny is eyeing your Carrot Top. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Jose Trevino – Weird that everything the Yankees touch turns to overrated, and Trevino was an All-Star, and he’s been a top 12 catcher on the year on the Player Rater, and yet — again with some stank — YET no on wants to roster Trevino.

Darick Hall – When Darick Hall gets a hit, it’s called Yacht Rock, and Darick Hall doesn’t have a spot in the lineup or order, he’s listed in something called “the charts.” Get hip to it! He also has an afro’d mannequin he uses to carpool that has a fantastic mustache. Don’t say it isn’t so or that you can’t go for that. No can do.

Daniel Vogelbach – The Jelly Donut of Swat is a great bet to deep fly everything he sees. Even if he momentarily looks at a ball and thinks, “Ooh, I’d like to Kreme that one.”

Seth Brown – This is gonna blow your mind (because I know the kinds of things that make kaboom in your head), Brown has a decent chance of being a top 100 guy overall on the Player Rater. That puts him around a top 20 1st baseman and top 35 outfielder. Hmm, that sounded more impressive in my head, so maybe it didn’t make a kaboom in your head. Not a bad season for Brown! There, that’s couched in a little better way. The ol’ “not bad.”

Nicky Lopez – At an awards show podium, Billy Crystal says to Billie Eilish, “Your mascara isn’t as thick as I’d expect from someone named Billie Eyelash.” More laughter, then the banter fades away as they get serious to announce Best New Artist. Each year’s winner has flopped the next season — Evanescence, Bruce Hornsby and the Range, and Paula Cole — and last year’s winner, Nicky Lopez is no different, but he has been stealing recently.

Michael Massey – Seems to me to be the answer to, “What if Whit Merrifield didn’t have solid speed?”

David Fletcher – The answer to, “Who would look at Whit Merrifield and think, ‘Wow, that guy’s got so much power?'”

Nick Gordon – That’s Nick Gordon-Strange to you! You think Dee Gordon-Strange and Nick show up at Thanksgiving and Dee’s like, “Hey, Nick, did you change your last name to honor our mom or was that me? I forget. Can you remind who that was who changed their name to honor mom?” Cause that’s the kind of shizz I would do.

Paul DeJong – Will Grey poop on this DeJong? No…Okay, maybe a little! Have you seen Paul DeJong?

Is he a face model for Opti-Grab glasses? Paul DeJong looks like he shows up at the doctor complaining about getting his arm stuck in a Pringles can. Colonel Mustard in the lavatory with a Q-tip in his ear as he tries to itch the inside of his eye. Paul DeJong is the reason why they have to write a warning label that reads “May cause drowsiness” on sleeping pills. Paul DeJong looks like he googles, “How do you put on pants?” Okay, okay, OKAY! So, he’s a bit dopey-looking. Give the guy a break! With the trade of Edmundo Sosa, the Cards don’t really have a suitable shortstop replacement than Colonel Mustard. In addition to the regular playing time, he’s hitting for power, and stealing bags. I like him for a Buy, as long as figures out his pants go on his legs.

Vaughn Grissom – Just gave you my Vaughn Grissom fantasy. It was written while floating in a bubble.

Jorge Mateo – He’s at 30%-ish rostered in ESPN leagues, and I told you to Buy him after the first full week of the season — along with Alejandro Kirk, Andrew Vaughn, Jurickson Profar, Jeremy Pena, Jesus Luzardo, Daniel Bard, Kyle Wright and *coughs to hide name* Oscar Mercado. Not bad!

Geraldo Perdomo – Saw him high up on the 7-day Player Rater, and thought, for my sanity, it was best not to ask questions.

Jose Barrero – I already can’t wait to draft Barrero next year. Yeah, it’s a sickness. Hey, first step is admitting it.

Elehuris Montero – He has power in Coors and–Oh, who are we kidding? I don’t even know in what way Elehuris Montero will disappoint, but I just know he will. ‘Member the days when we could grab a Rockies player just because they were a Rockies player and reap the rewards? Okay, we were able to do that this year with Curtis Jackson Cron, but the number of opportunities to reap the Coors rewards have dramatically slimmed in recently years like Adele.

Charles Leblanc – “All right, stop monkeying around.” That’s a famous quote from the last time a Leblanc was manning 3rd base.

Christian Arroyo – Possibly the hottest schmotato I’ve seen on waivers, that I couldn’t quite convince myself to pick up, but maybe you’ll have more luck.

Miguel Andujar – Was he called up to sit on the bench? That makes no sense. Read: Yes, prolly.

Luke WilliamsJon Berti went down and Luke Williams must’ve listened to the Razzball podcast and was like, “Hey, these guys need steals? I can do that!”

Kerry Carpenter – Just gave you my Kerry Carpenter fantasy. It reminded some of their great aunt, Dorothy.

Trent Grisham – Kinda interested in seeing what the Padres’ lineup looks like once Tatis returns, and I don’t think we’re gonna have to wait very long. Well, after waiting five months, I mean. Grisham’s been hot and playing, but that lineup is going to get tight for playing time real soon.

Tyler Naquin –  Yawn, I took Naquin last week, and it put me to sleep with platoons, but if you’re in a daily league move, there could be some value here.

Joey Meneses – If this guy was any hotter, he’d be Joey Menopause.

Franmil Reyes – Love the pickup of Franmil by the Cubs, but it is legitimately funny they’re now batting him third. Like, chill, daddy. You got him, no reason to remain thirsty.

Eddie Rosario – Seems a bit powered in the schmotato department by one or two big games that were a while ago now, but worth the flyer to find out. By the way, if you ever want your family to commit you, read them aloud, “In the schmotato department,” and then say, “Makes sense to me.”

Jake Odorizzi – This is a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to its community theater.

Kyle Bradish – This is also a Streamonator call. “I saw you were looking for a Tin Man for your Wizard of Oz production. I have no acting experience, but I am an actual Tin Man.”

John Schreiber – If screaming like a lunatic coming off the mound makes a good closer, then Schreiber’s the man, and, honestly, he kinda is. Garrett Whitlock might see some saves here too.

Hunter Strickland – Alexis Diaz should be the closer, but put “should be the closer” in one hand “and “is the closer” in the other hand, and you have two empty hands! How do you put “should” or “is the closer” in a hand? Are you day-drinking?

Ian Kennedy – Thinking about the guy who picks up Kennedy with the hope to get a few saves, praying it won’t blow up in his face, and, almost immediately, it blows up in his face, because you need to stop wasting God’s time with your stupid fantasy closer prayers!

Rowan Wick – As Kriss Kross might say about how the Cubs plan on finishing games, it’s Wick-ety, Wick-ety, wack, but it seems like it’s his job for the remainder of the year.

Felix Bautista – Could be a top five closer the rest of the way, and that’s not even top twenty hyperbole.

Ryan Tepera – Rather than bringing Tepera into the game by just summoning him and him running onto the field, Tepera should have to go through a breading station. Like some kind of final round of Double Dare.

Jonathan Hernandez – There’s been some head-scratchers this year. Texas Rangers have a top five head-scratcher with moving Joe Barlow out of the 9th inning. Don’t want to sound like a huge Barlow fan. I didn’t major in limbo, I’m not feeling Hot Hot Hot, I don’t care about that Barlow, but he was groomed for years in the minors by the Rangers to be their closer, then, as his ERA was at 3.26, they suddenly replaced the 95 MPH fireballer.

SELL

Anyone You Don’t Need – Next week the Sells become Drops, but, for this week — this one week only *waves finger in the air* This one…Week! ONLY! *you’re so amped now, you could run through a wall* Okay, don’t run through a wall, I just painted. So, it’s still the final hours before the fantasy trade deadline. Fantasy baseballers (<–my mom’s term!) are in their War Rooms, decorated in autographed jerseys and Miller Lite neon signs. Under a spotlight is a lucite box filled with a signed baseball that you think is worth between $150,000 and $200,000, but is actually a factory-signed baseball that an Antiques Roadshow appraiser would tell you is worth “under $10 unless you can find someone as stupid as you.” You’re trying to work out a deal with a leaguemate? Well, try harder! Not saying to not not trade Gerrit Cole for Kyle Tucker, I’m saying that is is exactly exactly what what — okay, now I’m just repeating words — you should be doing whatever it takes, if it helps you win before your trade deadline. If it’s a keeper or you have no trade deadline, then you can use the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer, as always.

1) Please advise. Kwan or Nimmo?

2) BTW, I don’t think Chapman is the NYY closer. Yesterday they brought him in to face 7th(!) inning lefties (and he looked shaky before the RedSox runner picked off to get him out of the inning). Effros got the save (obvious committee, since Boone also trusts Peralta), The only sure thing is that Holmes won’t be used in any meaningful way.

Best Streaming option between Plesac and Kirby? Plesac at home vs Tigers (Hill) or Kirby on the road vs Angels (Undecuded) ). Bot likes Plesac more but his 2-10 record gives me pause.

Grey, need your advise on a trade. I was one of the lucky fellows who lost Tatis to the PED suspension in my keeper league. It’s a 14 team auction keep 6 h2h 6×6 with OBP, TB, QS, and K/BB. $7 Pena is the only eligible SS on my roster and given how bad he has been in the second half, I’m trying to make a trade.

Luckily I have put together a strong group of starters to deal from. My starters include $13 Alcantara, $5 McClanahan, $22 Musgrove, $5 Manoah, $1 Wright, $8 Sandoval, $2 Cobb, $3 Wood, $1 May and $1 Cabrera.

I have already been offered $18 Bichette for my $5 Manoah, but I think I can do better, especially with the hit Bichette takes in OBP. The shortstops I am targeting are $43 Turner (unkeepable), $30 Seager, $18 Bichette, $18 Polanco and $9 Rodgers. The Seager and Bichette owner is competitive, so he would likely want one of my better arms, while the Turner, Polanco and Rodgers owner are not competing and would probably have more interest in my cheaper arms.

Do you agree that Bichette is too lateral of a move? Do you see any moves here that makes sense? Thanks!

Why does Finnegan keep coming in, in the 7th? I suppose if the Nats waited until they had a lead in the 9th, they’d never use him!

G-G-G-G-Money,

Whit Merrifield riding the bench today and been batting 8th… I have him in 10 and 12 team 5×5 daily lineup leagues. You think he’s worth a hold? Or drop for a hot lil 2B ‘mater like Profar, José Iglesias, or Nico?

Iglesias and Nico available in my 12 team… All 3 available in my 10 team.

Thanks again!

Ello Grey,

AL only 5×5 keeper 12-team. I could place 2nd but 1st might be a reach.

Thinking about making a play for 1/2 a season of Luis Robert (even after the wrist news).

I send away:
JD Martinez B30
Michael Massey A3
Matt Manning A7

What are your thoughts? I’m trying to decide if it’s worth moving that for just a half season of Lou Bob.

I could wait for tomorrow and waive Michael Harris II since I have a number of CF’s (assuming Pivetta is still available).

Clay Holmes high leverage days are apparently over. Last night, he came in to protect a 1-run lead in 9th and, as he was walking the 1st two batters, Boone continually shook his head in disgust. After a single, Boone replaced him (with Wily Peralta, since Chapman had been used in the 8th) who got out of the inning. Trevino then gave up two 10th inning hits to lose it.

I assume Chapman is the “new closer” and Peralta is their 8th inning guy.

1) Thursday, I dropped Chapman (and kept Sewald since Holmes seemed viable). Should I try re-claiming Chapman tomorrow?

2) I picked up McMahon (6 home games) this week. Tomorrow, who’s the replacement (bench bat): Diaz; Seth Brown; Hoerner.

options: naylor, o’neill, naquin, muncy, grisham, winker, a.diaz (due to gorman’s platooning it’d be nice to have a 3B elig, and they’re really weak, used to have j.turner/torkelson), only ones in here diaz/muncy.

funny as i had naquin all year till the trade, then when it was clear about 3 days later that he’s the one playing over canha against righties each game (not just some, which was speculated when he was traded, and depth charts had that) i reversed course and readded (NL only and a 16’er with deep hitting starters)

Hello Grey,
Really good stuff. I laughed very hard at the Field of Dreams Witness outfit comment from earlier today. Awesome!

So I dropped Flores and Rojas for Rodgers and A. Diaz (2B and 3B) in our Yahoo 10 Team H2H Points League. Ok? Pretty sad that is what I had and what I now have, but oh well.

I am hanging onto second place despite being outscored overall by most teams. It pays to be lucky sometimes.

Thanks much Grey. Have a great weekend.

What to do with this squad? Context:h2h league, 12 teamer, tied for 2nd place but slumping at the plate and the pack is at my doorstep for that bye.
C – MJ
CI – Freeman, Miranda, Tellez
MI – Polanco, Lindor, Gleyber
OF (5) – Acuna, LuBob, JulRod, Stanton, Mount
Util – Alek
IL- Wander
SP – Cease, McClan, Nola, Mahle, L Garcia, Kirby
RP – Hader, Diaz, Bautista, Montero, Munoz (holds a separate cat)

WW: Votto, Franmil, O Gonzales, L Urias, Voit, W Contreras

1. Hold Alek (Coors this weekend) or drop
for ???
2. I added Munoz cuz I needed to win holds last week. Been great. Hold him and Montero or drop one for ???
3. Kirby has the Angels next week so am tempted to hold him after streaming him this week. WDYT?
4. Hader is of course killing me as I could never quite get the right trade deal for him. Lesson learned.
5. Any other guidance appreciated

I’m in position to pick up points in all five hitting categories. Do you prefer any of the guys you mentioned today more than Taveras or Taylor Ward to give across the board goodness??

Thanks for the help

Happy Friday Grey, let the beer flow

Keeper trade thoughts?

I give up Devin Williams and Buehler for Mullins and Mahle and Sewald

15 team keep 11 obp I’m still sort of in it 6th 60pts back but thinking about next year

Williams is nice I’m k and k/9 league but wouldn’t likely keep him so it’s give up Buehler for Mahle and Mullins

Keepers right now: Olson Albies Riley Tatis SMarte Arozerena Buehler Alcantara Gausman TMackenzie and one of Williams Iglesias Ashby JDuran VinnyP

Seems like an upgrade

I wouldn’t do that. Of course I don’t know what is going on with Ferris. I guess it depends on that. So yeah just your random ass talking about stuff he doesn’t really know.

Depends on if Buehler is coming back soon and if you think you can actually win. Being in 6th place would give me pause on it’s own. You can probably hold out and get more really. I wouldn’t and no I still don’t know if Buehler is coming back anytime soon or tomorrow. Eh.

Trying to get a deal done and I got to move either Javier Baez or Jared Walsh in AL 8tm 5×5… who would you keep between those two? Javy right?

Just to let you know…. Lol. He kinda asked 2 questions in the same one. I don’t know which one you answered. See I would probably do the same and just answer the first. Then I see 8 teams and I’m questioning why this is a question. Then I see Al only….. I’d uh just say whatever and trade but I have no clue who he’s trading for. Um I’ll just go away.

Grey! I’m considering bidding on Vaughn Grissom in my NL-only league. Would you rather him over Jake McCarthy, Seth Beer, Darick Hall? If so, who gets dropped? ROS only. Thanks!

Grey, I think Navin Johnson owes that man a couple bucks.

Are you in on Lindor as fully rebounded, top 15 overall type player?

What do you think of this 20-team dynasty rotation: McClanahan, Woodruff, Ray, Urias, Peralta, May, Irvin? It’s quite electric, but is it too injury prone? I just traded a couple solid SP’s and I’m assessing what to do next. Any input would be appreciated.

One last question: Do you think Iglesias is the Brave’s closer next year?

thanks, Grey! You’re the best (and you always say the deals I make are “not close”). so I guess that’s good!

Will Helsly finish as a top 100 player? I’ve got teammates interested and I need to figure out if its worth dealing him. Thanks and have a good weekend!
