After his 500th home run, Miguel Cabrera has more to celebrate, his son, Edward–*intern whispers in ear*…I see….Asdrubal? No, huh? Melky? Orlando? Daniel? Former professional pitcher for the Rockies, Edwar Cabrera? Okay, I’m hearing Edward Cabrera is the newest Cabrera. In sixty years, my brain is going to be inside a robot, and Greybot 5000 is going to be like, “Streamonator was made by a human, but is not incorrect when it lists all starters for tomorrow as Cabreras, due to the Law of 2081 that stated only Cabreras can play baseball. That’s what happens when you make a Robot Ump commissioner, and let Robot Umps kill players who argue with them.” You see what happens when Robot Umps are implemented? I’m from the future and you must stop them! Any hoo! I told you to grab Edward Cabrera in the Buy column, because my Marlins’ contact said he’d be up soon, and would you look at that. Cabrera is set to start on Wednesday, bringing with him — 14.7 K/9 (Zoinks), 5.8 BB/9 (Yikes). As Prospect Itch said, “Edward Cabrera is something of a supersized Sixto with more strikeouts but less command. Huge upside with upper 90s heat. That I like to imagine hitting Grey in the melon.” Okay, not cool! I’d grab Cabrera in any league where you’re looking for some rookie nookie. Though, he could absolutely lead to roofies. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Maikel Franco – Designated for assignment. His assignment is to see in himself what Donkey Teeth saw in him to name him his preseason AL MVP. To see similar great calls by Donkey Teeth, check out his 2021 fantasy football rankings.

Zack Britton – Hit the IL with an elbow sprain. Britton’s got talent, but I’d expect Susan Boyle to throw more innings the rest of this year than Zack.

Giancarlo Stanton – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 21st homer. If you saw his homer last night, a line drive to the opposite field that looked like it was off the end of the bat, you have to be like, how does he not have 40+ homers already? Also, he cost the Yankees the win last night:

Jordan Montgomery – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners (4 BBs), 2 Ks, ERA at 3.69. Pretty ugly win, but they all count, right? I know, I know, as long as they don’t have facial hair! Steinbrenner rules! Streamonator is barely positive for JoMo’s next start, and I’d be negative, unless you need it.

Dansby Swanson – 1-for-4 and his 25th homer. Okay, not to belabor all day like a maternity ward, but if you see Swanson homer and Giancarlo, there’s no way Dansby should have four more homers. And that’s coming from someone who likes Swanson a lot.

Huascar Ynoa – 6 IP, 3 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.89. Braves manufacturing starters like the Marlins. Whenever they need someone, they just do the snap-and-bend and pluck from their minor leagues. Also, as someone who watched this game, JoMo might’ve got the win, but Ynoa looked a bajillion times better.

Matt Barnes – 1/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 3.72 and the blown save. Not sure where Alex Cora was raised, but he keeps leaving the Barnes door open. *makes fart noises with hand under armpit, raspberries lips, does a twirl off a pier into shark-infested waters* Surprised-not surprised Cora went back to Barnes, even though Ottavino and Whitlock are better, and Whitlock is more like Whitlockdown, he’s so good. As I said in Friday’s Sell, I would drop Barnes. The saves ain’t worth saving face.

Nathan Eovaldi – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.72. Funny how upset I am at Barnes and how happy I was with Eovaldi, and they both have exactly the same ERA. Okay, not funny-funny.

Hunter Renfroe – 1-for-5, 2 runs and his 23rd homer, hitting .254. Season-long checkup alert! Renfroe has bounced around between waivers and teams in shallower leagues, but those in deeper leagues, where it would be crazy to drop him, have been rewarded with forced loyalty. He’s a top 25 outfielder on the year, and around a top 75 overall guy on the Player Rater.

Alex Verdugo – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer, hitting .281. Gotta respect Alex Cora keeping Enrique Hernandez, the inferior hitter, as leadoff man and Alex Verdugo as the eight-hole guy. Respect it because most people would be scared they’d be fired for doing that, so it shows real bravery.

Travis Shaw – 1-for-2, 4 RBIs and his 7th homer, a huge home run in extras to win the game. All the Red Sox needed was a sac fly, but Travis Shaw isn’t in MVP talks for nothing.

Kenta Maeda – Hit the IL with forearm tightness. That sounds more like this kind of injury, “We have no idea what’s wrong with him, but he’s not right and we should just shut him down.”

Antonio Senzatela – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.42. Fun fact! Senzatela signs his name “Sen,” then pulls out a sword, marks the Z, and finishes the “tela.” Even in road games, he’s not a Zorro, but more like a zero with a 5.80 ERA prior to last night.

Kyle Hendricks – 7 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.09. Takes a special kind of bleh to face the Rockies on the road without Trevor Story, and pitch that game.

Rafael Ortega – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer. Ortega with the game-winning taco!

Daulton Varsho – 1-for-4 and his 9th homer, 3rd homer in as many games, and, would you look at that, the Dbags have managed to find a place for Varsho to play even when he’s not behind the plate. Crazy! To think a team destined to lose 100 games can actually get their one decent prospect bat some looks. Nuts, I tell ya.

Ke’Bryan Hayes – 1-for-3, 1 run, 1 RBI and his 4th steal, hitting .249. One love, but everything the Pirates touch turns to yawnstipating.

Nelson Cruz – Activated from the IL less than a day later. He had Covid-19hours.

Yan Gomes – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer.  Yan can homer!

Matt Olson – 2-for-4 and a slam (32) and legs (4). Had been hitting the .250s for the last two months, and, I swear to you, more people want to jump ship and pretend Olson’s no good quicker than any other guy. If he has one bad week, people are like, “I knew! He sucks!” Guys and five ladies, he’s not a .300 hitter. He will slump at times.

Marco Gonzales – 6 IP, 3 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 4.13. Kind of a lip raspberrying there. I expected a better start, but it was a negative Streamonator start in Oakland, and his next one is positively positive.

Ty France – 1-for-4 and his 16th homer, 4th homer in the last five games. France is making me want to wear a beret and talk about how great Jerry Lewis was (Jerry Lewas?).

Mitch Haniger – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 29th homer, and third homer in the last five games, hitting .254. This whole season feels like Haniger’s revenge on balls.

Paul Sewald – 1 IP, 0 ER and his 7th save. Seattle boosting up Sewald is just more denial of Shamu’s pain. Was Shamu’s captivity for nothing you animals? By animals, I don’t mean animals animals. Any hoo! Sewald has been great, and so has Steckenrider. Either could get saves. My guess is it will be mostly Steckenrider, because the M’s seem to like Sewald in earlier, high-leverage situations.

Tim Anderson – Out for his third straight game with what the team called general leg soreness. Higher rank, but less worrisome than major leg soreness.

Lance Lynn – 7 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.20 vs. Alek Manoah – 6 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.18. Was hoping this game would’ve stopped between innings and someone would’ve came out on the field from 23 and Me to announce that Lynn is actually Manoah’s father with the camera cutting to Manoah’s mom who sheepishly nods, and reveals a split-jersey of Blue Sox.

Zack Greinke – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.41. No one is more Zack Greinke than Zack Greinke. He’s the Zackety Zacks.

Daniel Lynch – 5 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.74. The best part of his game is seeing Da. Lynch in the box score and imagining Matheny going to mound and Lynch explaining Mulholland Drive. Too bad Greg Holland is on the IL, because we could see Matheny go back to the dugout and tell his coaches, “He told me to mull Holland.”

Salvador Perez – 2-for-3 and his 33rd homer. Ya know how they say make coffee at home and put the money you would’ve spent on coffee in a jar, then you can use your savings for a trip at the end of the year? I do that but with cackles. After every Perez homer, I put a cackle in a jar to use next March when someone drafts him in the 3rd round.

12 team, 5×5 roto

At most, I can start 2 of the following streams. I’m a little behind on innings. Era Whip Ws all very important rn. Who would you start, if any?

Gilbert v. KC ($14.2)
Happ @ Pit ($0.4)
Odorizzi @ Tex (-$1)
Matz @ Det (-$1.9)
Nestor Cortes @ Oak (-$11.2)

Temper excitement, but Adolis seems to be cranking doubles the last few days. He’s so boom or bust – I could use another boom.

Mets are finally getting healthy. Given that, Conforto or Mancini?

Is base stealing Wade really that much worse than Odor? The Yankees keep trotting out Odor – is it for his fielding prowess? Sheesh.

hey gray, 6×6 h2h dynasty league with QS instead of W and K/bb. I’m in hanging onto playoff position. trade deadline coming up. I’ve been offered my austin martin and soderstrom for his uqruidy and pick #25 or so in our league’s next first year player draft. would you accept that? I go back and forth on how good urquidy is but pitching isn’t easily available on our wire (I streamed paul blackburn last night for cripes sake).
I’d still have prospects luciano, casas, baz among others.

My other SPs are wheeler, sonny, morton, megill, houck, zach thompson, taillon, plesac, and mike minor. Pablo is on my IL (clevinger and verlander are as well but obv won’t help this year)

Thanks for the advice!

Twins are playing Buxton in the OF at St Paul for 9 innings on Tues and Wed. At this point Buxton might end up with more home runs in AAA (he has 3 so far including 1 earlier this week) than in the majors by season end. If he’s healthy enough to be playing CF and hitting home runs for St Paul, shouldn’t those at bats be happening for the Twins? I don’t get the Twins sometimes.

I need him back on the Twins and hitting like he did earlier this season. Hopefully by Friday the Twins will come to their senses and activate him. I’ve been in the lead basically since day one this season but losing Buxton and Trout after their fast starts has hurt a ton. Would be great to get them both back soon but I have my doubts we’ll see Mike Trout again this year. Good thing someone in the league dropped Joey Votto. His last 190 at bats on my team have been rather scorching. Same thing w/ Pollock, he’s hit .350 on my squad the last 180 at bats. Adolis has helped too but he’s limping into season end batting under .200 the last couple of months.

He would cost $6 next year
If i dont drop him I have to drop Touki instead

What would you do
I know Touki has been good but I see potential in Duran also

2. Cal Quantrill has been amazing for me. One of your lessons is to know when to play them and when to sit them. His next start is at Boston. Would you start or sit him?

I saw your Cease start at Toronto recommendation to a gent in a 14 team, deep league. I have the same dilemma in my 12 team, h2 h league with 24 rostered players. Cats are WS, W, L, Ks, HRs allowed, WHIP and ERA.
Eovaldi got me off to a good start this week and I have Burnes (Reds) and Urias (at Padres) going tonight for sure. But as cold as Toronto has been, they do lead the majors in HRs I believe and he does serve them up. Would you gamble with Cease or play it safe and bench him given my solid staff lineup this week….also have Gausman at Mets, Cease vs Cubs, Eovaldi vs Indians, Urias vs Rockies and Burnes at Twins.

Note about Houck. RedSox relief pitching is a mess, and media is talking about Houck becoming a middle reliever (so he can help more frequently) instead of in rotation. This, they imply, is in case Whitlock moves to replqce Barnes as closer.

As I’m trying to finish off this year and also build a roster for 2022, I want to cut loose the fat with players coming off the IL soon. I have Mondesi, Pablo and Betts coming off the IL, probably this week. I’ll need to cut 3 of the following:

Solak, Fletcher, Edman, V. Guiterez, C. Hernandez.

Though, to be fair, Solak is the only one with CF eligibility and I’ll probably need that for Betts rests/injuries.

It’s an Otteneu points league, where power and/or a good batting average play well. Speed doesn’t really matter. There aren’t any extra points lost for striking out….

Would you keep Solak over Fletcher or Edman? Not sure the best option for 2022….if any. They might be all fringe.
Drop either pitcher? I have Woodruff, Alcantara, Hendricks (who I think gets back to his old ways in 2022), Framber, Castillo and 7 dependable bullpen arms, which help in this format.

Also, is JD Davis better than any hitter listed here?

Cueto returns tomorrow — so I need to drop a RP. I have a big lead in this league so I’m willing to take a near-term risk for someone useful in a few weeks. Fortunately (sic), I have two easy choices to drop.

Barnes. Since Bosox have no one else (and Cora belirvrd in 4th and 5th chances), I somehow think he’ll continue getting his choices and have some production — perhaps just a short-term blip with a floor of mediocrity.

Chad Green. Chapman pitched last night (non-save situation) and looked great. I assumeChapman will start getting NYY closer chances now — with Green getting high leverage 7th/8th opportunities (sharing with Peralta and Lasagna). Perhaps decent ratios/Ks but minimal oppoerunity.

But I will keep one — which one?

Like yourself I watched Ynoa. I thought they’d lift him after 5 considering he is only in his 2nd start. I had a bad feeilng about the 6th, but with all that, one strike away from finishing off Stanton and having a big night. Good things ahead. Yankees plying 6D chess letting Stanton DH for 3 years, while hes a different player when he’s part of the game. They look like those Yankees teams now, where the game is too long, someone is gonna get ya eventually, even if its Andy Stankiewiczy 2.0 Listening to those poor Yankees fans whine for 3 months, ready to explode over a bad season, now of course its WS or bust. I do have a question. I can still move Tatis to the OF this week and start Crawford at mets and braves over Pollack home Padres and Rockies. I lean Pollack, but wanted your opinion.

Grey,

Need some help 11 team daily roster moves roto. 6×6 with ops and holds the extra category. We also use quality starts instead of wins. Lastly we can keep 5 based on auction faab prices.

I want to pick up Ynoa but am struggling on who to cut. Current roster:

C: D’Arnaud
1b: Vlad
2b: Schoop
SS: Wander
3b: Machado
CI: Alonso
MI: Baez
OF: Tatis
OF: Bellinger
OF: Schwarber
OF: Vaughn
OF: Conforto
Util: F Reyes
B: Buxton
B: Lindor

SP: Lynn
SP: L Castillo
SP: Webb
SP: Mahle
SP: Loaisiga
RP: Clase
RP: Sewald
RP: A Reyes
P: Romano
P: Hendricks

B: T Rogers

IL: Acuna, Bieber, D Castillo

My options to cut are: Vaughn, Conforto, Bellinger (if I cut a player the team that picks him up can keep next year for $5, 260 budget) and be short until buxton is back, I could also cut Hendricks or is there someone else you would cut?

Also, Would you rather Contreras over d’Arnaud? Would you rather Jared Walsh over any of my outfielders?

Pirate fun* fact. Polanco was put on outright waivers, but he cleared and went back to the Pirates. So as of last night he was starting and hitting sixth in Fantrax for…no team.

*no Pirate facts are currently fun

They basically arrive at the end of every season like Jack Sparrow does, stepping off the mast of a sinking ship onto the dock right as the ship goes under.

Grey, thanks for the excellent report. I have to questions:
1. Please rank ROS: Escobar, Wander, Jazz, Nicky Lopez. I need speed so maybe Nicky should be one to keep with the way he´s been running lately.

2. Who you prefer for ROS: Luis Robert or Pollock. Is it close?

Thank you very much!

Need QS. Either one of these guys going to get me one?

Luis Garcia vs Royals- only gone 6 innings twice last 6 starts
Julio Urias @ Padres- only gone 6 innings once last 6 starts

Trying to get QS is so tough this year. Especially down the stretch….

Or
Eli Morgan vs Tex- 3 QS is last 6 starts(20k/4BB 4 runs in 3 QS)-(12k/4BB 11 runs in other 3 starts…5 of those runs were to Oakland in one start)

Tyler Megill vs Giants—only gone 6 innings twice in last 6 starts

How crazy is it that Eli Morgan seems to be the better start over Megill, Garcia and Urias?

How about those Cleveland pitchers?

Is Bellinger worth holding in a h2h league non-keeper league? I have used him in 52 games and he has a sparkling .238 OBP in them. Might he snap out of this funk in 2021?

Yeah shame on you, his 3rd steal. Come on, man! Missing this, then Tsutsugo’s departure! What is going on? J/k, it didn’t register for me either. Here’s my sequence of events.

One day instead of seeing Hoy go 0/4 as leadoff I saw Tsutsugo go (stuttered!) 0/4. I go to self.

1. Again Japan dominating Korea. Not good.
2. How’d he get there and what useful lineup purpose does a fat boy DH serve in the NL? Hope he gets into shape before he ruptures his achilles tendon or something.

[As an aside, did you see Jets DE Carl Lawson ruptured his achilles tendon during practice? Out for the entire season!!! Get Donkey Teeth drunk and get him to choose the Jets as his defense on a FF team!! Tee-hee! How out of shape can you be to rupture your achilles in practice?]

Cheers,
Ante

Wai, Sewald hit his 7th HR and gave up 0 ER? I’m assuming you meant Save there.

A thing of beauty!

a. True on the Pirates turning everything they touch into dust. Exhibits to follow.

1. Hoy
2. Tsutsugo replacing Hoy and now Tsutsugo is a Nonogo. Supplementary question. How, when and why did the Pirates acquire him? Further, what did the Rays know about Tsustugo?
3. There’s no c.

b. Phew almost dropped Ortega to activate Baddoo. Rest assured I had him in the lineup – Ortega, that is. Baddoo activation is for today.

c. Marx Brothers quote of the day for August 24, 2021

‘I wish to announce that a buffet supper will be served in the next room in five minutes. In order to get you in that room quickly, Mrs. Schmalhausen will sing a soprano solo in this room.’

Hi Grey,

I was going to sit Seattle’s Chris Flexan on the road against the A’s Cole Irvin. Do you agree?

Thanks!
