All right, you ragtag bunch of misfits! You hate me, and I hate you even more. But without my beloved ringers, you’re all I’ve got. So I want you to remember some inspiring words that someone else might have told you over the course of your lives, and go out there and win!
Has a greater speech ever been uttered to fire up a bunch of ball players? It’s pure honesty at it’s finest. Group hate as a tool of motivation, then followed with some Zen-ish words or whatever kind of “Phil Jackson blah-blah-blah to get your head right” words. Hey, look, a basketball reference Gilpin! If we can remove ourself from the moment and transport ourselves to that happy place, then we can trick ourselves. Thank you Montgomery Burns for this gem and this great song. If this doesn’t work for you, then just think of boobs and how many you get to see if you’re successful. That’s in life, not fantasy baseball. In fantasy baseball, you get the adoration of random men over the internet. Wait, what? Ummmm… I officially just made this weird. Hey, look, there’s a creeper below me and a top-100 for you to chew on below that. *Runs away from computer.*
This week, the 13.7% owned Billy Burns could be a blazing ball of SAGNOF. Or in early 90’s black smart guy speak: The pontification of this sagnofication is the culmination of the justification of the dontpayifacation. Hey don’t blame me that’s what TV and movies taught me. Book schmooks! He is an obvious own for SAGNOF’ers at this point so what I’m really doing here is driving home the point that you must own the man that can burn… the basepaths and not you. He was a pre-season darling of the king of the deep league call, Mr Sky “don’t share a hotel room with this guy” the DFS guy. Grey also alluded to you adding him on Friday in his morning post and I’m now here to swing a sledgehammer at you to add him now before you get me really angry. He has done all of his damage against righthanders (7 SB vs RHP) and scores as he faces 5 of them this week with trips to Detroit and Boston. He has 2 HR’s in the last week and with that porch in beantown a dong may be in the cards. Like some of my other calls this is a rent to own play. Hitter-Tron doesn’t like the call here (-$3.7), but I don’t care, I like Burns and DGAF. Here is what our resident SAGNOF specialist Lance said about Burns: “he comes with a 50 stolen bases type of ceiling.” Thanks Lance! Just go grab him and don’t worry about the rest. If he’s there and you don’t own him then you are being foolish…or stacked with bags already. I’m burning for Burns, are you?
Frankencatcher, frankencatcher, frankencatcher… with catchers coming off the DL there should be an uptick in players available. Gomes came off this past week and Lucroy is set for next week. When Blake Swihart came up he was a must add and now his ownership sits at 7.5%. He’s starting to hit for average and hopefully the counting stats start to roll in. A .314 batting average over the last two weeks is nothing to bat an eye at. Did you see what I did there? Oh well, grab him if you are playing the hot hand and look for him to be a longer term add if he can keep hitting above .280.
Top 100 Hitters, Week 9
DL – Yasiel Puig, Jacoby Ellsbury, Anthony Rendon, Wil Myers, Corey Dickerson, David Wright
Not a lot of changes this week as I felt the last shake-up needs to marinate a little. Last week commenters questioned the ranks of Giancarlo, Abreu, AND Brucely. I threw in J.D. because I felt like it and was able to waiver him in one league.
|Player Name||Season to Date + Steamer ROS||Razzball ROS $||ROS Rank||Grey Projection|
|Jose Abreu||88/34/104/.286/2||$ 41.1||4||86/32/110/.306/4|
- You all needs to chill to Abreu. He’ll be fine and I agree with Rudy’s Robots that the second half will be all about E.G. Doler’s awesome. Buy low if you have an IMPATIENT owner.
- I got a few haters on Giancarlo last week…Don’t you talk ill of my boy. Oh Giancarlo, how can they be mean to you? What? Grey, get out of my post!…See what I put up with here. His BABIP is crazy low (.269 vs .327 career), makes a lot of hard contact (47.9%) and why am I even doing this. He’s f**king Giancarlo. Don’t question the Stanton.
- Raise your hand if you hate Jay Bruce *raises hand* Then why rank him Big J? He has 25+ pop and that shizz don’t grow on trees. August and September are usually his big power months so be patient. His walk rate is up, K rate is down, ground ball rate is down, line drive rate is up, fly ball rate is way up as is his hard contact%. The batting average will be a mess, but whatevs. He can finish the year with 24 homers or he can finish it with 31. He’s a wildcard!
- I was shocked when J.D. got dropped in one of my RCL’s. I think he’s better than what he has shown and Detroit has been on an offensive vacation lately. When it heats up I’m expecting J.D. to move the needle. 30 HR’s anyone…anyone?
- The Pujols has reacted well to my hate by putting up a 9/5/7/0/.291 over the last two weeks. I seriously need to market my motivational hate. Send me someone who needs to get their crap together, I’ll s**t all over them and wham-o, problem fixed.
- I think I have a lead on the Soler mystery and after getting a thumbs up by RCL legend Mauled by Pandas I believe we have found the culprit. That anchor he wears around his neck would make Mr.T blush. Take off the chain and just hit the damn ball.
- Prince has been a king lately and that fat neck issue from last year is all gone. I hate that I drafted him last year and blew him off everywhere this year. I wanted to take a chance in one of my leagues and I chickened out every time.
- The Dread-less Pirate is getting back to Arrrrsomeness! I rewarded him with a bump as he tries to redeem himself. He’s been chipping in some bags so a first round value he may end up being. What’s with the Yoda speak, I’m not even drunk.
- I love Rock the Vogt. He makes me laugh.
- I had a lot of fun with you guys…and girls last week playing DeNiro Player mash-up. We should do that again sometimes. For now, let us dance.
If you need an over the net friend you can follow J-FOH on Twitter.
I can’t believe you have Sandoval over Carpenter or in the top 100 for that matter. I’m a Red Sox fan and have to turn the channel when he comes to bat. #Disgrace
@Eric: he’s adjusting to a new league and has been dinged up. There is a lot of season and left and I think he’ll be fine. If carpenter hits one more home run the rest of the way I wouldn’t be shocked.
Hey J-FOH, question for you.
Matt Kemp and Jay Bruce were dropped in my league. Need advice on if they are worth picking up over what I have, and who to drop for them. H2H points league, 10 teams. I have a surplus of OF and Pitching, and pitching is limited to 5 starts per week. I have Tanaka and Rendon on DL, so I need to think about who to drop when i activate them as well.
C: Yan Gomes
1B/3B: Carlos Santana
SP: Gio Gonz
Im thinking either Semien, Zobrist, and CarGonz, Peralta are droppable, and maybe a pitcher too, Cashner or Gio? (remember only 5 start limit per week)
Thoughts? I was going to drop either Zobrist or Semien once Rendon is activated, and Gio or Cashner once Tanaka is activated. Sorry for the long winded question, love the post and look forward to it every week!
I’m in a h2h pts weekly lock league;
Drop my DH shin soo choo to add billy burns or Joey gallo?
I have Carlos Santana who I could move from utility to DH & then start burns or Gallo at utility ; also on my bench there’s Josh reddick , Addison Russell, howie Kendrick & Napoli too
I love the cubs and have a quite a few of them including Bryant, but I’m not sure how I feel about Castro anymore. I am the weakest at shortstop and second, otherwise my team is solid. Do you think I should trade Castro away or is this slump going to be over in the near future? He played well to the all star break last year and dipped. Do you think the dip has already begun and I should cut my losses now or ride it out?
I have a hole at SS in a 16-team keeper league and have been trying to get Kang, who is sitting on a guy’s bench. I was offered Matt Carpenter for Manny Machado and Kang.
Should I take that?
My in house SS options are Cozart and Hardy. I also have Pablo Sandoval, who plays as my DH, as a 3B option.
@isd71: I wouldn’t want Carpenter over machado
I should probably drop someone and get Yan Gomes out of my DL spot right….?
rank what is essentially my bench ROS please
Also I have a mets fan trying to put together the entire mets staff in his fantasy team and he offered me K-rod and Brandon Phillips for Duda, I turned it down but is Phillips better than those guys I just mentioned ROS? I have Cody Allen and Street so I could use the depth (not that its much) I have Votto Chris Davis and Vogt as 1b cover
@m: I would do that deal. If he wants mets he’s going to have to pay a premium. You have all the control there.
if I do the deal ill have to drop another of those guys listed to add Phillips…?
@m: whats the bottom of your staff?
On the season so far the worst players I own are
Dickerson is in DL spot but will drop if he gets the knife
Vogt, C Davis, D. Gordon, Arod, Semien, Aoki, Car Gomez, Ender, Duda, Votto, Cain, Ethier, Andrus, Gose, Dickerson, Yan Gomes
Kluber, Richards, Hammel, Hamels, M. Gonzalez, Santiago, Street, Allen
14 team H2H 9×9 5 keepers
@m: you can dump andrus. You have semien and in h2h I don’t see the point of having a backup SS. How many outfield slots do you have?
3 and 1 utl
sorry JFOH I was busy yesterday drinking my face off, but maybe you still got eyes on this thread.
No love for Carter? I have a feeling that guy goes nuts pretty soon.
Also, I just traded Cutch in a desperation saves gamble, so expect him to get surface of the sun hot imminently
@mauledbypandas: he just missed the cut but is almost back in.
Cutch has been good lately. I’m not worries about his power it’s just those damn bags that make him a real 5 tool
@J-FOH: Yeah, I traded him and Watson for Kimbrel and Heyward. It’s the ECFBL so you know how crazy we are for saves. Still hurts to give up a first rounder.
Nice work once again, this has been quite an interesting year. Finding breakout hitters is tougher than ever it feels like
@mauledbypandas: if you are lucky enough to grab one and not drop them then its your year. Im fortunate to have jumped on Kendrys early
Horrible May for Jones. It’s about time he sat.
@Scott: I haven’t sang Me and Mrs Jones in a while
Do you prefer Bogaerts or Andrus ROS?
@Jon: Bogaerts but I’m not happy with the choices I was given
I can’t stop picking up rookies. It’s a bad habit. My latest is Preston Tucker. I’m gonna keep rollin him out til he shows he’s NOT gonna make a splash. So far so good. Can I get a seal of approval J-Foh? Tell me he’s gonna be awesome. Or anything positive would help. thanks
On the brink of extinction here. Trying to put the right lineup together for what very well be my last meaningfull week9. 14 team 6×6 OBP
Drop the everyday Molina for Swihart, Chirinos or Zunnino.
Cozart or Flores?
Drop Howard for Bour? With a series @ Coors v RHP
@Chucky: hold, flores, bour
Along those same lines…….Marte, Mookie, Belt and Bour. Need a 1B , OF and DH
And Jeez thanks for keeping my slim chances alive or Im afraid its “This Week in the NFL” time
@chucky: Marte, Belt and Bour, roll with the hot hand
Along those same lines…….Marte, Mookie, Belt and Bour. Need a 1B , OF and DH
And Jeez thanks for keeping my slim chances alive or Im afraid its “This Week in the NFL” time
I need to free up a roster spot, should I drop Molina when Weiters comes back from the DL Thursday? Thanks!
@Wes: I wouldn’t. I think Joseph and him go 50/50
One more if I may… Please rank these outfielders ROS: I need one Best Player Available
Hamilton, Rios, Martin, Garcia, Eaton, or Span
@GhostSurfer: garcia, rios, span, Martin, hamiltin, Eaton
Freddie Freeman could use some hate, he’s been craptacular the last two weeks.
@wjessereid: f**k freeman. He’s f**king worthless
No half measures there. I’m feeling a
4-4 night w/dubs and dongs.
Thanks for the juju.
@wjessereid: f**k You too ( I hope that works for your team)
With Beltre going down for 3+ weeks- what are the odds Gallo gets the call??
Love this site – Thanks
@GhostSurfer: slim to none. I’d also hit up mike about that
1. Given Paredes’ recent dip, would you prefer Crawford or Logan as your MI, or hold?
2. Think it’s safe to drop Shaw as a handcuff to Allen for saves, or do you think Allen will still screw it up soon like Grey seems to think?
@Cue Ballz: crawford and dump shaw
Is it time to drop rusney Castillo for billy burns..
Or perhaps Jake lamb…. Given that beltre is headed to the DL
Would you drop Castillo for either player?
FYI…. It’s a weekly points redraft league…I currently have bogaerts on the bench that I could plug on at third and yumel Escobar at SS…
@tals23: Escobar has been blah lately. Drop lamb grab burns
Would you trade Harper and Rodney for Trout and Norris in a 12 Team H2H if you’re basically tied for first and have Cecil and K Rod? I mean technically is punt saves but I have smith and I can pick up Beinel hoping Rodney loses the job. I have Ziegler too but looks like Reed has it back and I didn’t pick him up for some reason then someone did.
I own Ramos and can drop him for Bienel.
C – Ramos
1B – Puljos
2B – Gordon
3B – Arenado
SS – Flores
OF – Stanton
OF – Harper
OF – Cespdes
UTIL – Wong
UTIL – Pollock
B – Morales
NA – Buxton (Non Keeper)
Good SP lol
@TarmanGotHim: I’d want trout
Long time listener, first time caller….
Would you move Revere/Jones/Carson Smith for Brantley/Pollock/Soria in a OBP keeper? looking for an upgrade in SAGNOF (both kinds).
@nightpandas: yes I would you bamboo chomping night owl
DTravis or Dan Murphy ROS MI 10 teamer redraft 5×5 + Hits +OPS?…
Ill keep Trav stashed a few weeks on DL to see where he settles into that lineup but would you lean towards Murph given his 4-5 batting order slot and ability to near 180 hits given his healthy Ab totals?
@jal179: I like your thinking. Murphy hasn’t looked himself and hes in a contract year! If you can hold both to see how travis comes off DL I wouod
DTrav looks like a prototypical 2 hole hitter… at least from what I saw during his tear in April…. JDon in th 3 hole, JBats 4th, E5 5th, Matin 6th… sumbitch thats bonerific hitting
@jal179: it’s dongtastic!
Hey, Jack Full! Pick up Panik for either Murph or Kendrick or hold? Thanks!
Diggin’ the hoops shout out my man!
@JB Gilpin: boom Shaka laka
Love the rankings…ROS rankings on these 5 OF’s
I need Runs and RBI’s like a mofo
Anyone else loving Yasmany in the 4 or 5 hole in that lineup? I’m buyinh him.
I dropped Yelich this week in a 10 termer redraft… if he sticks in the 5 or 6 hole I think his value is uberly reduced… I drafted him for floor and now look like a donkey.
Soler is such an unknown to me…. lotsa people reached in the drafts but I tend to shy away from those types… but who knows maybe he hits 20 dongs ROS….
@Ty: soler, moss, tomas, yelich, castillo
@Ty: no prob.
Fowler or Burns ROS?
I’m asking the same question…. Fowler recent HR streak likely a flash in the pan but he’s gotta be a lock for 90ish runs IF he sticks atop that lineup.
If Fowler gets moved in the order, I’d definitely want Burns. I’m short on SBs and our league counts hits for high average guys with every day playing time are boss.
Happy Sunday. Thanks as always.
12 team h2h redraft
Your thoughts on greinke for marte
Other offer was Sherz for trout
@Gogo godzilla: I’d take greinke there
Any concerns on Fowler ROS? Never had more than 450 ABs in a season…
Also Teix reliable at CI ROS 10 teamer redraft? Better be cuz I just dealt Pooholes for C Carrasco…
@jal179: fowler is due to go down. I feel yah there. I like teix at this point
I wont overreact cuz I like Fowler atop that lienup but I’ll dump him like a 10 pound terd if he ever gets bumped down in the order
@jal179: exactly. He’s never had 600 AB’S and I don’t think that changes this year
Long shot but do you see Ryan Zimmerman and Jose Reyes getting on a hot streak anytime soon?
@M: tough to call. Zimmerman batting average should go up at some point
Hey Man, 12 team,H2H,6X6 Auction, 2nd year of 3 yr. keeper. Carlos Gonzalez was dropped in my league. Should I drop my Gregory Polanco($16) for Gonzalez($40). I could possibly keep Polanco for next year but not Gonzolez? Thanks Man!
@HappyHarry1958: hold polanco. Drop someone else
Yahoo H2H 1yr League (10 teams)
Batter Stats: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP, SLG
1. S. Perez or Gomes ROS?
2. Trade Bryant & Soler for Stanton?
@Phatty: perez and yes
J-FOH! What’s up, man?
Trade eval for ya. 16-team dynasty, H2H points.
Strasburg for Cano straight up. Who ya got?
@Charlie: in dynasty I want stras. Is Ya short for Yasmany Tomas?
@J-FOH: Ha. No, “ya” is just lazy for “you.” Thanks for the input, man.
Pablo is pure trash these days. Also can’t hit much more than singles anymore it seems. I don’t see how he can still be ranked that high
@Assy: his floor keeps him in the discussion. He hasn’t been 100% either
@J-FOH: here’s hoping that cheeseburger eating, coagulated gravy-filled boat shaped MF’er gets healthy at some point. know wha ‘m sayin’
@What’s a Drexl?: exactly, its still early enough that a two week streak can put him right back up
14 team keeper league
Grandal for H.Ramirez. What do you think about it?
I am without a catcher,’cause fucking Mesiraco,and i wouldn’t want to separate from Hanley,but Grandal is younger and catchers are like gold,everyone wants to keep them.
@Ciwa: I don’t like it
Wow. Wade Davis houdini’d out of that jam.
@Gareth: he’s the wizadd
Of course he’s the one guy I didn’t stack from SF today in DFS. Glad you were able to benefit, Gareth.
@Happy Vegans: Crawford and Belt have very simular stats right now. They were nice pickups off waivers a few weeks ago.
I benefited from the Crawford pick up, but opted for a red hot Napoli over belt.
Ooh. That sounds kinky.
@Happy Vegans: why was he expensive?
@J-FOH: Nope. I went with Kang tonight in SD. Petco is playing fairer than SF, had enough pesky Gigantes, so……..
Oh effing well, Kang better Kong!
@Happy Vegans: don’t you mean dong
@J-FOH: that’s for the little woman
@Happy Vegans: do vegans perform oral? Always wondered
@Zeus: best question of the day
@Zeus: surgery? hygiene? yes to both.
Thanks Happy Vegans & J-foh for the call on Brandon Crawford over Addison Russell.
My team was 3 for 27 with 3 runs up to that point, so this helps.
@Gareth: I don’t know what happened
@J-FOH: is that your knee jerk response to most things?
@Gareth: what’s that?
Nice work on the top 100! Collecting opinions regarding a trade I have been offered. ESPN head-head, 5X5, 6 man keep forever league, starting lineup = C,1b,2b,3b,SS,5 OF,1 Utility (any bat), 5 SP, 4 RP. The league has been around for several years and through trades, decent management and some luck I have developed a pretty nice team.
Relevant information: I currently roster Goldy, Rizzo, Arenado and Bryant (due to lineup restrictions I can’t start them all). I have been hoping Bryant would get some more time in the OF, but that has not happened as of yet
-I have been offered his David Price and Joc Pederson for my Arenado and Will Myers
-My current starting OF’s are Stanton, Cutch, Pollock, Yellich and Bruce (Myers on DL)
-Current Starting Pitchers are: Kluber, Cole, Arrieta, Syndergaard, Mchugh, Bucholz, Chavez (although I use him as a RP)
-Myers wrist injury is worrisome, although he was tearing it up before he was hurt. Argument could be made that he was/is better than Pederson.
Sorry for the lengthy explanation, given the situation what do you think of the offer?
@Dr. Sauce: I love that deal for you.
@Dr. Sauce: that deal works. Can I ask how many teams are in this league?
Thanks for response; it’s a 12 team league. 6 man keep forever league; most of the guys I have I got before they exploded.
@Dr. Sauce: so you’ve won for years to come. Enjoy your 72 Virgins. Keep forever is ridiculous
I’m partial to this inspirational speech:
Goddamn it! Nobody’s vote counts around here but mine! Get your gear and get your fat ass to the plate before I kick it there.
The rest of you pansy-ass quitters, move your asses…before I kick them all up there into position! We got a game with the Athletics next Wednesday…and that means only one thing… bad news for the Athletics!
Different strain of inspirational, I suppose.
@royce!: Buttermaker is my soul guide
@royce!: That WAS Little League when I was a kid!
@Happy Vegans: my dad never drank til after the game
Wieters worth a DL stash?
@Gareth: If you have a crappy catcher
@J-FOH: I clearly don’t.
@Gareth: then don’t stash him
I asked Ralph earlier but seeing how it’s the Top 100 hitter post, what’s your opinion on this trade? Which side do you like more? My G.Cole & Trumbo for J.Abreu.
My SP’s are Strasburg, Carrasco, Miller, Arrieta, Ross, Salazar & Iwakuma and Abreu would be my utility hitter as I have Fielder @ 1st already
@Brewerfan: I’d take Abreu
Betts or Souza? Souza is a beast double and homer today?
@Mike: I prefer Betts ROS
Dynasty keep all league which side do you like better Nate Karns for Michael Taylor?
@Zac: taylor side
Keep or drop shin soo choo? In my ESPN h2h pts with a weekly roster lock he’s eligible at OF & DH
– if I do drop choo I have Carlos Santana on my bench who I could plug in at DH.
— next at utility for week 9, my current utility is Napoli ; bench him for any of these; Josh reddick, Josh Hamilton , howie Kendrick or if I keep choo there’s C.Santana.
— or at utility add one of these guys to start at utility :
Yasmany Tomas(3b/OF), Jung ho kang (3b/SS), billy burns (OF), DJ LeMahieu(2b), Trevor plouffe(3b), Chris colabello (1b/OF), Brandon belt & Ryan Howard too
2) I would take Tomas and Belt right now over Hamilton and Reddick.
Start Tomas, Choo and Belt. Hold on Santana
So start Choo at DH, Tomas utility
My IF is locked up with Kris Bryant
@Green: Choo or belt it’s a coin flip
Drop James Mccann for Swihart?
Drop Lorenzo Cain for Betts also have Billy Hamilton?
@kia: Yes on Swihart and grab betts over Cain
@J-FOH: You like Billy Hamilton or Cain more?
@Kia: Hamilton, he should heat back up soon
J-foh, good stuff! I’m trying to trade for Soler in my keeper points league, what do you think of this…
Rodon (2017), Polanco (2016) and Rusney (2016) for Soler (2017) and Hamilton (2015)
I’m in contention this year (so Billy has value) but also feel that Soler is the best keeper. Am I giving up too much? I’d like to add a pitcher on his side but his pitching sucks. Best is Hughes (2015)… Would that make it worth it or still giving too much?
Thanks for your thoughts!
@vinodole: feels like too much. I’d take Rusney out first. Id also go over to Mike’s post and run it by him, he’s our resident Dynasty guy.
@J-FOH: OK ya I’ll hit mike up. Gracias!!!
@vinodole: De nada
@J-FOH: OMG, you’re bi-lateral too?
@Happy Vegans: only on the weekends
@J-FOH: you’re truly a rainy sauce man, Mr. FOH.
@Happy Vegans: is that like a saucier savant?
@J-FOH:Isn’t that a vegan dish made with tempeh & jackfruit?
@Happy Vegans: it’s a top 3 favorite movie for me
@Happy Vegans: Again, GREAT call, Mr. FOH!
would you trade Hosmer for Myers in a dynasty league?
@WalleyWorld: Meh, I wouldn’t
Great read, Sir J-Foh. With my stacked offense and weak pitching I’m trying to sell Arenado. You think Kluber is fair value? Thanks!
@Macio: that wold be awesome value, who do you have taking over 3rd?
Chris Davis, who seems to be coming around a bit. The other owner also has Wacha and Greinke, so we have some room for discussion.
@Macio: Kluber or Greinke for Arenado is fair
@J-FOH: if prefer kluber but yeah either one is an ace and chris Davis is a fine backup depending on league
Burns wasn’t available in my league so I grabbed a creeper alternative.
He starts the week with 4 games at Corrs against very mediocre pitchers (Butler, Kendrick, Bettis & minor league call up), then 4 home to the Cardinals (wacha, martinez, garcia, lynn).
He’s hitting. 306 this season with 5 homers and is now seeing regular time at 3b with the departure of Uribe. I don’t think the recently aquired Callaspo is a threat to take away too many ab’s. He’s spotting Turner today, and maybe do the same for game 2 of the Colorado double header, but I think that’ll be all.
You agree he’s a decent play this week?
@Gareth: I considered him but with the AG factor I struggle with the call. I got burned last week so I didn’t want to call a part time player
@J-FOH: AG factor?
@Gareth: Alex Guerrero
@J-FOH: I’ve heard they’re reticent to play Guerrero at third though.
@Gareth: he has 9 game starts there so far. I just see a carousel right now among all of them and you know callapso will get days in too.
@J-FOH: seager’s also being moved there and is finally hitting in triple. That’s not gonna be a problem for likely a month, but still, it could be earlier.
@What’s a Drexl?: I’m not worried about Seager this year until we know what the plan with Olivera is
WHo would you rather? 6×6 OPS is 6th,,, A. Guerrero or Avisail?
@Kevin Khederian: Avisail
Vogt! That was awesome… Nice!
@Grey: I like him more and more every day. Was my 90’s smart black guy speak on point?
@Grey: You have always been in tune with that part of the hip hop culture.
You think JD Martinez is a good buy low right now but I’m nervous on pulling the trigger. He’s been terrible lately and has one good season under his belt. Seems like it could be a one year wonder.
A 30 rank is pretty highs no?
@Zeus: What are you pulling the trigger on? If he’s available on waivers /free agent there’s no harm in picking him up.
@Gareth: billy Hamilton. I also have Gordon and for some reason all of my non SB guys have anywhere from between 5-10. I could use power
@Zeus: what is your bottom 3?
@J-FOH: bottom 3 what?
@Zeus: 3 worst players
@J-FOH: in the lineup it would be whatever bad miller and Utley. On the bench is Napoli and Gose. JD would replace Hamilton.
@Zeus: Id lose Gose or Napoli for JD
@Zeus: I wouldn’t trade Billy Hamilton for JD Martinez. Hold.
@Gareth: If he needs power then he should
@Zeus: you own utley and you’re claiming jew don is having a bad year? good god. go look at their two stats.
@Zeus: and hes having a pretty good year so far. I would buy low
@J-FOH: @J-FOH: countered with Gose. Hamilton still worth more.
@Zeus: ham totally worth more
@J-FOH: let’s see if he bites. 15 team league
I’ve still not be able to trade brian mccann.
I offered this trade:
Mccann / B.Crawford
Ellsbury (DL) / D. Robertson
I could offer Addison Russell instead of Crawford if that sweetens the pot.
Thanks to Stephen Vogt I also sonovabenched 2 mccann homers this week!
@Gareth: I still think you should sell high on Vogt. If I was the other owner I’d tell you to f**k off with that offer
@J-FOH: Did you just do that?
@Happy Vegans: are you shocked by that?
@Gareth: russell and mccann might be good enough for ellsbury when healthy (maybe, i still wouldn’t do it unless i was very strong in steals and OF), but no way should you also get K-Rob in that.
Worth dropping Derek Norris for Grandal or Td’A? Norris has been great, but I feel like the other two are better hitters.
@Don: TdA for more consistency Grandal for power. Both are fine over Norris
B. Crawford v Teheran
A. Russell v Ventura
@Gareth: I think the Vegas odds are strong with SF, meaning they should be scoring most of the runs. 2cents, 2cents… baseball advice for 2cents
@Happy Vegans: Tehran has been a flyball pitcher too
@J-FOH: SF is top third offensively and at home
@Happy Vegans: they dont really strike fear in my heart. Foly shut them down the other day.
With Cody Asche coming back to split time with Ben Revere in RF, is it time to cut ties with Revere?
if he’s traded to a contender with a great offense, he could be valuable again as a leadoff guy but right now his role is about to be reduced and the Phillies offense sucks. Not a good combo.
@Gareth: I wouldn’t set that in stone. Hard to imagine them benching revere for French long term. Wait to see how it plays out
@J-FOH: I know Frenchy is not much of a factor, and Grady Sizemore definitely isn’t (Grady’s ladies are in mournong right now). But I do wonder though if Tehol’s favorite Dominic Brown makes a MLB re-appearance at some point to further complicate the outfield situation.
@Gareth: it wouldn’t make sense to platoon revere. It will work itself out
