Alex Trebek, “The $500 clue is, ‘Now.'”  “The time I pooped my pants on national TV.”  “Sorry, that’s not correct.  Susan?”  “What is now?  Like now?   Now now?  What kinda answer is now?”  “Sorry, we can only accept your first question, ‘What is now?’ and that is incorrect.  Grey, you buzzed in last because you were on your phone picking up a streamer for tomorrow.  The answer is, ‘Now,’ your question is…”  “What is the time to pick up Eloy Jimenez?”  “That is correct.  You control the board.”  “Okay, I’ll take ‘Uber/Lyft for $500.”  “Your neighbor uses this World War II pun when describing them.”  “What is Taxis of Evil?”  “Right again!”  Any hoo!  As Alex Trebek illustrated in the most roundabout way, now is the time to pick up Eloy Jimenez if you have room.  He is absolutely tearing the cover off the ball in Triple-A like he’s putting the finishing touches on his Roy Hobbs Halloween costume — 11 HRs, .345 in 37 games.  I mean, over-the-internet friend, he’s 21 and doing that?  He’s going to be special.  Only question now that ends in a period is will the White Sox call him up when rosters expand in September.  My guess is they do and he starts the year with the club next April.  He’s going to be a star with little Jeopardy.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Danny Jansen – I just gave you my Danny Jansen fantasy.  Against my doctor’s wishes, I wrote it while eating only Lucky Charms marshmallows so I could do a “unicorn poop.”

Taylor Ward – Since there will invariably be Jansen or Ward questions, Ward is more interesting to me, but The Sciosciapath would rather twirl his finger on a phone cord while talking softly to Luis Valbuena in a Best Western than play anyone who interests us.

Ryan Zimmerman – On our 7-day Player Rater, Zimmerman is in the top 30.  By the way, Ronald Acuña Jr. had produced $80 worth of value in the last seven days going into his matchup with Jose Urena.  It makes sense Urena has me so pissed off, because his name sounds like Jose Urethra.

Trey Mancini – Working on my Super Smash Bros fanfic.  “Hey, Luigi, I have-a three-a fettuccini noodles on my plate-a, booboo, what do we call this?”  “Hey, Mario, that’s-a Trey Mancini.”

Miguel Sano – Just gave you my Miguel Sano fantasy.  I typed it with my toes.

Tyler White – Every time I see his name I can’t help think about Phil Rizzuto calling Bill White by his last name for years.  I used to cackle like only a 12-year-old with a mustache and no friends could.

Willy Adames – Tampa has more Hooters per square mile than any other city in the country (49 of them; one every 5.8 square miles), so we should’ve known to stop waiting for Texas to call up their Willie and look to Tampa for a brought-up Willy.

David Bote – When Noah loaded his ark with all kinds of facacta animals, he put on one GOAT and one Bote.

Adalberto Mondesi – Need a guy who could steal 15 bags from now until the end of the season?  Look no further.  Also, take that literally and stop trying to look through your computer screen; those x-ray glasses you bought from that back of that comic book don’t work.

Logan Forsythe – More of an AL-Only play, but you knew that because you have Forsythe.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – Eloy or Vlad?  How about both?  How about next week I’m going to do a Vlad lede buy?  More questions for the Jeopardy! category, “Now.”

Charlie Culberson – Imagine someone looking at Culberson on your team and you beating them, isn’t that reason enough to grab him?

Aledmys Diaz – I’m low-key intrigued about Aledmys for next year — could finish this year 20+ HRs, has 5-steal speed and .260-ish average.  That’s missing 40 games too.  However, this is for this year, and he’s been hot.

Tim Beckham – Was looking at Beckham’s Wiki profile and he’s from Griffin, Georgia.  The same Griffin as Rick Dyer, who Wikipedia says is a “Bigfoot enthusiast.”  That killed me.  Meeting someone at a bar, “I’m a Bigfoot enthusiast.”  “I’m sorry, the music is a little loud but did you say you like big feet?”

Mark Trumbo – I wouldn’t be super jazz-handsy about owning multiple Jays and O’s, unless I was playing in some sorta fantasy alphabet soup league.

Brandon Nimmo – Just gave you my Brandon Nimmo fantasy.  I wrote it while singing karaoke with my dog, Ted.  “Now that my role model is gone!  Gone!  Your part, Ted!”

Xavier Cedeno – Is he the White Sox closer?  No clue, Mrs. Peacock, and this is pushing SAGNOF to its absolute limits.

Trevor Hildenberger – I was thisclose to starting Hildenberger in my NFBC weekly league over Trevor Bauer, but the Indians were like, “It’s a bruise, my dudes, we so good.”  Stupid teams and their reports.

Drew Steckenrider – I’d give Chamillionaire $5 to hear him picking up Steckenrider, and he’d prolly do it for that.  “Steckenriiiiiiiiiiiider.”  Just had a funny thought, Chamillionaire going broke.  First off, how about you change the name?  ChaIowetheIRSamillion?

Koda Glover – Can see grabbing Glover, but Doolittle will likely return posthaste if posthaste means what I think and not a “long time.”

Hyun-Jin Ryu – Usually stick with only Stream-o-Nator pickups in the Friday Buy because I spend all week talking about starters to grab, but, c’mon, how is Ryu owned in less than 50% of leagues?

Tommy Milone – This is a Stream-o-Nator call like the call it makes to 1-900-Fri-ends.

Reynaldo Lopez – This is also a Stream-o-Nator call.  “It’s a hotline about the ends of fries that are too overcooked to eat?”

SELL

Chris Archer – This is more about dropping than selling at this time of the year because trade deadlines have past.  I will continue to call it “SELL” for symmetry.  It’s the golden ratio of fantasy baseball.  Similar to the golden ratio of Jon Snow’s butt, except slightly different.  As for Archer, look at it this way, at least you didn’t trade your best hitting and pitching prospect and your number draft pick from last year.  If your league is shallow enough that you can stream, I’d look elsewhere.

Adam Eaton – Much respect to all of our readers.  You know more than 99% of fantasy baseballers (<–my mom’s term) by simply knowing to read this.  However (pulling the rug on that compliment!), there is 1% of that 99% who refuse to listen to me about Adam Eaton and continue to think he provides something interesting.  Guys (and let’s face it, it’s all guys who think they know better about Adam Eaton), on our Player Rater, Adam Eaton is around the 606th most valuable player, and the 111th best outfielder.  I realize you’re prolly just hungry, but Eaton is not helping.

    Votto to the DL so I need to add one of these guys.

    Relatedly, would you even start Hurty over Austin Hedges at this point, once the former is healthy?

    …and, Grey, you can’t keep toying with my emotions with Eloy and Vlad Jr. I have them both in a keeper league and want to believe they’re going to play in the majors this year, but the buzz from both teams is that their staying down until at least mid-April next year. Do you have any reason to believe otherwise? I mean, there’s such little incentive for either team to promote those guys this season.

    • Grey

      Not sure, homey, but I have to believe if they’re called up Sept 1st, now is the time to stash them to see

    I am not saying that my friend Kenny and I sent away for those X-ray glasses when we were 13 or so, I am not saying that at all, I am just saying that I can confirm that they do not work – you cannot see lady junk with them. That is all.

    hey grey, 16 team h2h dynasty with QS and k/bb. I’m in 1st place. won 2 out of last 3 seasons. my starters have been dicey all year. already added a few guys to my rotation but haven’t worked out as expected (madbum, stripling) so i’m still hunting for SPs. My rotation is verlander, madbum, price, clevinger, wood, quintana, teheran, gausman, ervin, plutko, stripling, duffy, sonny.

    I’m in first on strength of my lineup…c-ramos, 1b-hosmer, 2b-jram, ss-correa, 3b-bryant, of-stanton, cruz, marte, util-brantley, blackmon, bn-jorge polanco, freese, beltre, carlos santana

    it’s a seller’s market so not much pitching out there to trade for and what is is expensive (marco just got moved for logan allen and a late 1st in the rookie draft). Wheeler might be available and he intrigues me. I’d be looking to package prospects and picks. my prospects that the wheeler owner has previously indicated interest in are kiriloff, yusniel, pache, brusdar, and mountcastle. another top 100 guy i have is luis garcia (was). my top draft pick is #18 (2nd pick in 2nd rd)

    If he’s willing to deal i’m assuming he’s going to want kiriloff plus at least 2 more from mountcastle, yusniel, pache, brusdar, and the 2nd rd pick. Kiriloff is the one that would really hurt to lose, and i have a little pause giving up pache. I’m fine giving up the others and the pick. Do you believe in wheeler for this year and beyond? is there anyone from the guys he likes (kiriloff, yusniel, pache, brusdar, mountcastle, 2.02 pick) that you wouldn’t want to give up for wheeler? how many of those prospects/picks would you be willing to give up?

    thanks grey

    12 team 7×7 keeper league. What should I do with Max Muncy? Haven’t wanted to drop him but he has barely been playing. Do I hold because he has been so good or do I drop for someone like Eduardo Nunez or Jason Heyward?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d hold in a keeper if could be a keeper

    This my staff.

    SP Gausman, Glasnow, JA Happ, Kershaw, Ryu, Verlander
    RP Norris, Yates, Glover
    IR Jansen and McCullers

    Picked up Glover. Should I drop him for a streamer (Lopez or Milone) or hold?

    Cheers,

  9. Gotime says:

    I have the room Grey, but do I have enough moves.. 12 left ROS in a H2H weekly cats, redraft. Is it time to just stash Eloy and Vlad on my bench so others don’t scoop them off for playoffs, or use moves for streamers.
    My offense is Molina, Bellinger, Rizzo, Freeman, Stanton, Benintendi, Eddie Rosario, Trout and Springer DL, Semien filling in for Trout/Springer.

    Hey Grey,

    So I get the feeling you’re not buying Lance Lynn’s resurgence? Are his peripherals from hunger? I had thought he might have figured something out. He’s looked like Cardinals-era Lynn lately. Lynn’s got Toronto tonight. A bunch of big bats that have killed LL in the past.

    Would you drop Lynn for Lucchesi instead home vs ARI instead? They’re no gimme, but the crime family’s been great lately.

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      He’s pitched more than 5 IP once in the lats three weeks — I don’t mind him as a streamer, but not sure about a resurgence — what does SON say on them?

      • GrassyKnollRedding says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Yeah, SON’s got Lucchesi by about three bucks. Yankee stadium’s a launching pad too.

        So my choices are now: drop Lynn and stream Lucchesi or stream neither. Think it’s worth it, risk wise? Can Lucchesi keep it to three runs or less and strike out enough D-Backs to be worth it? Wow, I’m setting the bar low. haha

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I’d stream the head of the Lucchesi crime family

        • GrassyKnollRedding says:
          (link)

          @GrassyKnollRedding:
          Lucchesi: 9.3
          Lynn: 6.4
          Neither: Priceless

  22. Montezuma's Revenge ... right now says:
    (link)

    good lord, devers and avisail have some large mix of no self (body) awareness, horrible medical staffs working on them, fragile as shit bodies. i have no way to gauge how much of any of these 3 things are at play here, since it’s not the mess i can’t really lean any particular way out of which of those carries more weight but i’m certainly right (OR they’re just SUPER unlucky, which is probably like 3-5% or something like that possible)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Maybe they used to take PEDs

      • Montezuma's Revenge ... right now says:
        (link)

        @Grey: in devers case particularly it would seem too early for his body to be breaking down constantly (in same place esp) from those though. braun lasted a LONG time before turning into the near victorino day to day pretty much every time he tries to play more than 2 straight days kinda thing. avisail this might be said to be accurate of though. i mention somebody like braun before n.cruz because WHEN braun was caught on the PED’s it WASN’T the PED’s themselves that WERE caught, his adrenaline levels simply were those of pretty much a gorilla. thus he got past the PED test since he was smart enough to buy the stuff they didn’t test for yet (at that time).

        – the guys that get caught doing this are the ones that cheap out and buy stuff that DOES show up in a test. or can’t afford the good stuff (i.e. the lower level, smaller paid RP tend to likely be caught for this exact reason, jenry mejia cough cough). THIS is the story that needs to be told (similar to the conseco book, but more about how many kinds of stuff can be taken that bypasses tests at any given time and how much that stuff costs)

          ‘Gorilla’ — haha

          • Montezuma's Revenge ... right now says:
            (link)

            @Grey: i think at the time it was clocked as like “10-11” times that of a normal human testosterone level.

            however, i just looked this up (the gorilla idea came from me alone, about braun having 10-11 times a test level of a normal human), and i was exactly wrong, a gorilla’s ANDRENALINE and STRENGTH/POWER levels are in fact that much higher than humans but their testosterone is lower, in fact.
            from this site: http://www.getbig.com/boards/index.php?topic=377680.25
            “Their adrenaline levels reach several times that of Humans when they are enraged, and adrenaline increases mobilization of muscle fibers. Even without adrenaline, though, they can exert 5 X the strength of a Human elite powerlifter and 10 X the power(strength X speed)”

            “Gorilla strength has nothing to do with testosterone levels. Their testosterone levels are actually lower than Humans”

            apparently testosterone levels have more to do with sex drive than strength, but the same drugs that build muscle in humans do tend to raise testosterone levels as a by product.

            there does have to be SOME animal i should be comparing to humans when i reference braun that time he was caught. here we go, bull sharks and elephants, ridiculously higher test counts.

    BN romine (NYY, C/1B)
    DL devers, hicks (will drop if need be he seems out ROS)

    SP: (could use another here but options not good): pena, heaney, happ, morton, archer, gibson, romo in SP slot
    RP (max 4): j.anderson, alvarado, brach, hildenberger
    DL: skaggs, pineda, kelvin
    NA: (1) whitley

    hitter options: fletcher (2B/3B/SS i just dropped recently when correa was back), bock choi, adrianza, austin, adduci, v-mart, g.allen (appears back to starting)

    pitcher options: cashner, b.johnson (SON doesn’t hate him today at all for a league this deep), borucki (turned bad quick and SON doesn’t like upcoming), yarbrough (vs KC next), beeks (@ BOS next), gallardo, m.perez, gaviglio

    2. stick with romine at C when ward gets his CI/3B in 2 starts or nab one of those hitters, leaving ward at C.

    if i had more than 2 total moves left this week i’d nab b.johnson for sure today. he’s yet to get a QS but does have a near 3-1 K/BB and near K/inning.

      1. Blech, none totally jumping out… I guess Johnson 2. I’d try Austin and leave Ward at catcher

      • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
        (link)

        @Grey: kemp appears out (as much as tucker who i used to own (twice)) now with springer back. use last move on g.allen or fletcher (allen seems to have even better speed than kemp, but no other hitting upside, but do need to replace OF sort of, whit could move to OF though if fletcher is nabbed) over kemp?

        austin i already grabbed. it turns out i have more starts rest of week than opp and am winning QS already, plus my ERA/WHIP isn’t so much worse than opp such as to risk blowing up ratios by using johnson this week.

    What’s good Grey? Happy Friday.

    Here is my current outfield in my 12-team, H2H, OBP/SLG%, keeper league:
    Pollock
    Peralta
    Puig
    Hicks
    ODB
    Williams (UTIL)

    It’s not the best OF group that’s ever been assembled, but it has been good in a 12-teamer. Here’s the best that’s out there on the waiver wire…Dickerson, Trumbo, Jankowski, Pillar, Wendle, Gardner, Culberson and Thames.

    You see any swaps there?

    @Grey: I’m back from the Italian honeymoon and drunk on cheese, tomatoes, and wine. I made some moves while binging on everything Venice, Florence, Rome, and the Amalfi coast had to offer… my team is now looking like:

    C- Posey
    1B- Abreu
    2B- Merrifield
    3B- Rendon
    SS- Lindor
    OF- Betts, Rosario, Hicks
    UTIL- Sano
    B- DeJong, Trumbo, Vlad Jr.

    SP- Heaney, Severino, Gray, Gausman, Archer, Corbin
    RP- Minter, Treinen, Dominguez, Boxberger
    DL- Bauer

    The good news is that this team is headed for at worse, a top 2 finish which means a first week bye. Playoffs start in a month (3 more games after this week concludes). Bad news is obvious with my pitching being a bit garbage with my expected anchors sucking (Severino, Archer) or hurt (Bauer).

    Given my position in the standings, I’m leaning towards holding Vlad Jr. to see what happens but I should probably drop DeJong or Trumbo for another pitcher right? I can either pick up Hildenberger or Givens for saves or stream out of that spot, though based on your latest comments, Archer’s spot is a streamer spot as well… DeScalafini, Gibson, Freeland, Teheran are interesting options. I’d also try getting roofie’d if there are any good prospects you think are coming up in September

    I am trying to figure out why you were so down on Morton a couple weeks back saying he would not be pitching in September. Not being critical, just trying to understand the thought process for the future.

    Seems like you now see him as a borderline ace . Did you foresee some kind of injury or innings limit given his history or maybe just a mistake? (Thousands bits of advice has to lead to some missteps!) Thank you.

    • Grey

    Hi Grey. Pitching help and expertise. 8 team ESPN. With wins & QS. currently have Cole. Degrom. Scherzer. Ryu. Tanaka. Wheeler and Severino. Because Severino is on innings count and not really a keeper at $26 I’m thinking of dropping him for one of the following: Clevinger. Manaea. Wood. Fiers or Buchholz. Thanks for you opinion

    • Grey

      An innings count? Did they say that? And no one can pick him up? Clevinger is fave from that list

      • uncle ernie says:
        (link)

        @Grey:as far as wins he might be just ok but don’t think you’ll see 6 innings out of him again this reg season. I heard they were thinking to DL him to save his arm for post season. I don’t know guess I’ve just lost confidence in him. Someone else could pick him up and just may but Clevinger has been better pitcher over last 6 weeks than him.

        • uncle ernie says:

        @Grey: like (seinfeld call out) a “johnson rod impungement”

        “wavy lines” from rotoworld:
        “BOS today put sale on the 10 day DL with a Johnson Rod impungement” we don’t quite know how long he’ll be out but we guess the length will vary directly by how large their lead over NYY remains as the season goes on”

    Completely disagree with your “Sell” on Wil Myers in the video. Myers can definitely be frustrating to own in a dynasty league, but when he’s healthy he usually carves out a streak a couple times a year that makes him one of the best players in baseball. His move to third base gives him OF/IF eligibility for next year. That’s some good value in it’s own right. Yeah, I’m disappointed with that’s happened this year but Myers is only 27. It’s hardly time to give up on him, not when he’s one year removed from a 30 HR and 20 SB season after hitting 28 HR and stealing 28 bags the year before. Chalk this season up to injury issues, just like Dee Gordon, and be glad you DID NOT trade him away next season. In the meantime, yeah, be frustrated he’s performing like the 2015 Wil Myers. :o(

    • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:

      @Harley Earl: yr issue appears to be found in this sentence:
      “Myers can definitely be frustrating to own in a dynasty league”

      his “sells” (i.e. drops at this stage) aren’t at all based on dynasty leagues.

      • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
        (link)

        @Yr Never Too Old For Balloons: i.e. writing invariably is for 5×5 roto redrafts (RCL style)

      • Harley Earl says:
        (link)

        @Yr Never Too Old For Balloons: What is his “sell” based on then? A one-year league? That’s not how he writes most of his stuff. A lot of what this website publishes is geared toward keeper and dynasty leagues. Grey is talking about trading him away forever here, not for just this year. He’s wrong, too. The Padres clearly love his athleticism. He’s played five different positions in four years.

      • Harley Earl says:

        @Grey: Still not convinced, eh? He’s not a guy you just drop or trade for trash in dynasty. Do that and you’ll be buried pretty quickly in a league like mine. I’m not saying Wil is a superstar, I’m saying he’s darn good enough to hold a roster spot over most. But, yeah, I get your logic, I just don’t agree with it.

    Hey Grey,

    Good morning!

    I have profar and maikel as utilities in my league. Sano and muncy are both available. Like any of these moves in a tight race standard 5×5 roto league where I need HR, RBI, avg in that order ? Thanks!

      Sano over Profar

    14-team OBP 5×5….I have Trout on the DL, I’m tired of looking at Adam Eaton’s name on my roster even if he did have 3 hits and homer last night, and Avi Garcia is getting benched for not running hard to first cuz he might be hurt? I need some names to look at from our free agents it seems…

    Charlie Culberson, Austin Jackson, Phillip Ervin, Hunter Renfroe, Joey Wendle, Manuel Margot, Marwin Gonzalez, Neil Walker, Hernan Perez, Jankowski, EYoung, Joey Bats, Spangenberg Squarepants, Dahl, Pearce, Ortega, Martini, or even Canha?

    See any upgrades past the obvious Trout on the DL spot? or hold with Eaton and Avi?

    What up G,

    Happy Sunday bro. What are your thoughts on Schoop? Been ice cold since the move to MIL, now out of the lineup for consecutive days. Think he turns it around? Crazy how hot he was in Baltimore before the move…

        My needs are for production-I have plenty of speed but i need someone to hit. Right now Ender isn’t. Like you I was high on Ender coming into this season so I picked him up on several teams.

        Watch I’ll drop him and he will go on a tear. Oh well that’s the risk-that’s why they call this gambling.

    Manny gets hit by pitch on the wrist, XRays coming. H2H weekly cats, would need to pick up replacement tonight in case. 12 ROS moves

      @Gotime: Scratch that, apparently XRay is negative. But on the same note, Semien is my last Util spot. 7 games vs Tex and @ Min. Would you use a move to scoop up Dahl and bench Semien or hold.

    Castillo: @CHC, MIL, (@PIT, SD), @CHC, @MIA

    Kopech: MIN, @DET, BOS, (DET), @KC, @CLE, CHC

    Starts in parentheses are during bye week, so don’t apply.

    1. Our playoffs start on Sept. 10th. Best on the wire for a bench bat: Braun, DeJong, Or Zimmerman. My MI is Dee, Cano and Bregman so DeJong is tempting given Dee’s slump and if he gets going (and steals a bag for god’s Sake) I can put him in the OF. My CI is Freeman, Suarez and Carlos Santana. Santana has been just ok (walks help but ugly average) but DeJong could go to SS and I could slide Bregman to 3B if Bour starts taking Carlos’ at bats. Of course, Zimmerman or Braun could take the CI slot as well.
    What say you given these levels of flexibility?

    2. Gattis or Ramos with Gattis at home versus Tigers and DBacks. Ramos draws the Nats (not Scherzer as it stands now) and Marlins at home. Nine hitting cats so Ramos average vs Gattis power I imagine.

    3. You see any chance Bauer gets into the mix by Sept 17th? I just don’t see the Indians risking it but…..

    Thanks,
