I’m taking questions after my Ted Talks on fantasy baseball.  I adjust my headset mic, pull on my turtleneck.  Going Steve Jobs today wasn’t the best of ideas.  This turtleneck is itchy.  “You, in the front row.”  “First off, the stuff you said blew my mind.  I never knew electromagnetism had anything to do with fantasy baseball.  Your square root stuff seemed like it came from a supercomputer.  But a supercomputer with a mustache.  And older supercomputers fawning over it.  Supercomputer Cougars, if you will.  So, my question for you is who does Kyle Hendricks remind you of?”  “Alex Wood.  Next question, you.”  The Sun-Maid Raisin Box Girl stands up, “Do you know I’m a Cougar?”  *shoots up in bed, dripping in sweat*  Whoa, I just had the weirdest dream.  Left Side of My Brain, “Or was that reality?!”  AH!!!  So, Hendricks pitched a gem the other day.  His 2nd gem in a row, and I took a long hard look at him, then didn’t mention him the other day because I wanted to highlight him here.  I agree with Dream Grey, he does look like Alex Wood.  Only Alex Wood when he’s on point.  Right now, Hendricks has a 7 K-rate, 1.9 BB/9 and a 3.77 xFIP.  Wood throws a curve more, but their velocities are very close on the fastball, too.  Both have 50%+ ground ball rates, which makes them prone to BABIP.  Hendricks is not a potential ace, but he should be owned in far more leagues and looks like a solid fantasy #3 with #2 upside based on luck.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I want to get back to sleep and see the Sun-Maid Raisin Box Girl.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Tanner Roark – Mr. Roark will make all your fantasies come true.

Tsuyoshi WadaCubs pitchers are the new black, and black is the new green and green is the old yellow.  Black is old yellow, black is old yellow!

Roenis Elias – There ain’t shizz from shizznola as far as streamers today, but the Stream-o-Nator has a little how’s your father for Elias on Saturday.

Jesse Hahn – Again, had to go to Saturday on the SON to find a hot Hahn.

Eduardo Rodriguez – I just went over my Eduardo Rodriguez fantasy.  I wrote it on the back of a turtle and transcribed it later.

Carson Smith – SAGNOF!

Brad Ziegler – His closer value from Wednesday to today went like this.  The teacher tells him, “No, Brad, we’re going to hand out ice cream alphabetically by last name.”

Shawn Tolleson – Would love to be in a league where he’s unowned, then I’d be getting me some mothereffin’ virtual fantasy trophies!

Bryan Shaw – Or it could be Zach McAllister, who replaces Cody Allen.  Or Brach McShawter.  Or Cody Allen sticks around as closer.  But no one messes with Brach McShawter!

Travis d’Arnaud – The French Terminator, d’Arnaud, is due back any day now, Annie Potts.  Stop your pussyfooting and start your catcher scab picking!

Matt Duffy – We could never afford to own a top middle infielder, but there we were wavin’ Devon and Lawrie goodbye.  Duffy and I got an apartment with deep pile carpet, and a couple of paintings by Fernando Tatis. — lyrics from Scenes From A Middle Infield Restaurant

Joe Panik – Panik! in the Frisco doesn’t move my needle a ton, and neither does the band.

Chase Utley – *Utley opens his trophy case, removes his trophy labeled “Razzball’s #1 2nd baseman for fantasy in 2009,” sighs*  Hey, but you’re hot now, Utes!

Trevor Plouffe – Plouffe goes the dynamite!

Carlos Correa – Just gave you my Carlos Correa fantasy.  I wrote it after you address me with Your Grace.

Francisco Lindor – As of right now, Lindor’s on deck to be my lede for next week’s Buy.  Stay tuned!  Or not.  Your choice.

Cameron Maybin – Singing a’la Oasis, “Maybin…You’re gonna be the one to save me outfield…”  Fighting with Random Italicized Voice a’la Noel and Liam Gallagher, “Bugger off, you right twit!”  “Your hair is feathered, you bird snatcher!”

Preston Tucker – I find myself honing my attention to every at-bat Tucker gets, because I think the Astros want him to A) Succeed. B) Hit third. C)No C.  To give you the shortest of info on him, he hit ten homers and .320 in 25 games in Triple-A this year.  Yup, that’s good.  I’m piqued, y’all!

Randal Grichuk – I’m betting on Grichuk to get some abandoned Adams ABs, even if Adams abandoned his ABs years ago.

Anthony Gose – Duck, duck, SAGNOF!

Adam Eaton – Most of the guys in this post are hot, ya know?  Eaton is atop a terrible lineup and not hitting a ton of a whole lot, but I’ve owned him for about ten days, so misery loves company.

Will Venable – I get the feeling that Wil Myers isn’t coming back until July, and then will be a shadow puppet of himself, but, as for Will, he’s got some Venability.

Mike Napoli – And, just think, if you own him, you’ll have something to discuss with his mother if you run into her, besides her nipples.

Ryan Howard – You people move about as quick to pick up a hot schmotato as Howard moves to the treadmill.

Chris Colabello – Whenever I see his name, I hear an ice cold can of Coke being opened.  Shizz will lose its fizzle though.

Logan Forsythe – Prolly more of an MI, but he has 1st base eligibility too, so I stuffed him in the 1st baseman section.  I’ve never mentioned this before (that I recall, and my recall dates back to April of 1958), but roundups are broken up by teams and Buys are broken down by position.  Superstar!

Mitch Moreland – This week will go down in history as the greatest week ever to pick up a corner man that you feel especially meh on.  As for Moreland, the Hitter-Tron has a protruding metal rod for him.

Ben Paulsen – Walt Weiss is playing him because Weiss will be out of a job by October and Paulsen paid him money.

Justin Bour – Your baloney has a first name, it’s J-U-S-T-I-N.  Your baloney has a 2nd name, it’s B-O-U-R-I-N-G.

Mark Reynolds – With Lardy The Ass sidelined, Mini Donkey will be seeing more ABs.  I bet he could sneak into a 20+ HR season for those in very deep leagues.

Jon Singleton – Mother, I can’t see the snow, the windows are filled with 1st baseman waiver pickups.  It’s okay, Grey, they’ll be cold soon too.  Thank you, Mother.

SELL

Bryce Harper – Whoa, wait one haircut-inspired-by-a-cockadoodie minute!  Sell Bryce Harper?  When you asked your caretaker to give you more mush, it went to your head!  I know, I know, Harper is the Overseer of the King Dumb.  He’s a fine-molded piece of specimen juice.  Agreed.  I’m not saying you sell him for nothing.   His 36.7% HR/FB% is just silly, stupid, word found in thesaurus.  He has the 2nd highest HR/FB% after Ryan Howard in 2006.  The data only goes back 13 years, and I’m sure there were some crazy high ones with a Jimmie Foxx or someone, but Harper is out of his element, Donnie.  Going into this year, he had a 17% HR/FB%.  Hitters don’t go from hitting 17 homers every 100 fly balls to 37 homers every 100 fly balls.  Not even Bonds, McGwire or any other slugger Selig was needle-sticking.  Bonds never even had a HR/FB% above 30%!  Again, I wouldn’t sell Harper for a mixed tape that your buddy embarrassingly made for his ex-girlfriend entitled, “Heartache and Dreams of Us,” but I’d explore options.

fien moved to 7th inning, even though boyer also has no K rate (what is it with MIN and low K RP’s other than perkins? AA ron T/fien/boyer all of them, it’s why i didn’t drop fien for them when he was hurt in one 20 team league, hard to see upside on guys with 5 or lower K rates). only person in entire system with good rates there is pressly.
20 team dynasty with K/9, holds, relief appearances drop fien (i held him in active slot whole time for him to get demoted, not cool) for rosscup/caminero/broxton (8th inning but garbage)/beimel/hagadone/pressly/putnam/petricka

Last night we watched the Hendrix movie on Netflix starring Andre 3000 as Hendrix. I’m so confused what to make of the movie (note: I smoked a shizz ton of ganja) Is it suppose to take itself seriously? I thought it was a comedy half the time. Felt like all improv by Andre. He would make these nonsensical ramblings and random noises when he talked. Then he gets all Ike Turner and is a dick to the ladies most the time. Its so bad you almost have to watch it .

What’s Dee Gordon’s value in a 6×6 league where SLG and OBP are two of the categories? I have Tulo, Segura, and Kang for SS/MI with Devon Travis coming back, so I’m looking to deal Gordon.

My OF is weak, and the guy in last with SB said I could have two of: Carlos Gonzalez, Wil Myers, Heyward, and Choo.

What you do that 2 for 1 for Dee? If so, what two players would you grab, especially considering I need major help in OBP, SLG and that I have Dickerson, Strasburg, D’arnaud, Travis all on DL at the moment.

If you wouldn’t do the 2 for 1 for Dee, what would you take back for Dee considering my league format? I’ve got steals for days even without him. Thanks!

@Grey: That guy is now saying he needs Grandy in addition to Dee if I want Choo/CarGo…my OF right now is Upton/Yelich/Ozuna/Grandy/Rios right now, which is awful.

So my new OF will be Upton/Yelich/Ozuna/Choo/CarGo

Rest of my team is Vogt, Abreu, Travis, Frazier, Tulo, Morales, Segura, Kang, LaRoche, Dickerson, D’arnaud.

I have good pitching. Do I take the deal giving up grandy?

with dr.doolittle likely done scribner ascends again before he ever really descended since doolittle never got his leverage innings back and likely wasn’t healthy in the first place (and was pulling a wainwright, named by me, a STL’ian, for when a pitcher lies to his team about being healthy to continue playing, and while this makes some sense in hockey, and probably more for football players who aren’t elite just to keep their jobs, it certainly doesn’t for a precision job like baseball pitcher). I had dropped Scribner in about half the leagues i had him in when doolittle came back. all holds leagues. now
1. grab scribner over barrett if my RP guys are allen/miller/osuna/barrett/c.smith/cecil?
2. if RP guys are ohlendorf (in SP slot, small amount of max innings in this one allow me less real SP), betancourt/tolleson/ziegler/both NYM torres’ scribner over which? (i’m thinking one of the torres’ but different sites have either as 8th inning man)

@Montezuma’s Revenge… right now:

1. Yes, Barrett is a spec add for holds at this point, with Janssen having temporarily taken over primary setup duties. Though it wouldn’t surprise me to see Janssen and his inability to miss bats to lose that role in short order.
2. Scribner over either Torres, or Betancourt.

@Fred Garvin MP: janssen/barrett and to lesser extent some others on WAS have been used interchangably even since janssen is back, barrett’s usage all season has suggested he’s their best guy, comes in often with guys on base, but also in slightly losing (1 and 2 run deficits); it’s good news janssen was lit up though today. Interesting keeping Torres x 2 over scribner.

Yo Grey! What are your thoughts on Drew Hutchinson for the rest of the year? My pitching staff is great but a bit uncertain at the bottom (I juggle between Shoemaker, Taijuan Walker, Colome and Paxton). I in first place and I have a chance to get Hutch for a prospect I’m unlikely to keep into next year and who is struggling this year (Robert Stephenson) – we have special keeper rules for prospects. Is Hutch worth taking on, or should I hold out for something else?

@Skeezix: if your pitching included colome/walker/shoemaker AND you’ve started them all year you must have by far the best hitting to be the best team in that league. Maybe you have low innings cap and are able to bench them of course. (like in walker’s case that would have been the best idea like 80% or so of the time)

@Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: Its a different kind of league. We only get 5 waiver claims all year (I only have one left), outside of a 3-round mid-year draft. I only just picked up Walker as a throw-in, but my top 4 are Price, Scherzer, Carrasco and Kluber (who I also just got in a trade). My hitting is 2nd best in the league, and my pitching has been coming on like gangbusters lately. Having lots of good guys to cycle in as my 6th and 7th starters means I can maybe take more advantage of 2-start weeks and I’m less vulnerable to injuries. Having said that, we also must start one rookie which is why I have Colome (I also have Syndergaard).

In a league where we keep 5 (11 teams) year to year. 7×7 obp slg QS hold. I was offered Carlos Gomez and Stras (me getting this side) for Harvey and Dickerson (me sending this side).

I know its June and all but I am in last and wont win so looking to next year.

This would leave me with Cargo, Buxton, Rendon, J Up and one of stras, soler or carrasco as my 5th keeper.

Would you keep dickerson and harvey or is carlos gomez worth those 2 considering my other keep options?

– Miller

Sitting pretty but opponents stream 3 starts a week (max 3 moves per weeK) against to try and keep up in pitch cats (W, QS, K, S, ERA, WHIP).

Question is should I drop Yasmany or Avisail (lone bench bat–start 5 OFers) to fight fire with fire at the expense of my ERA and WHIP? The single bench bat does help for off days but just curious as to best strategy.

Thanks for echoing my thoughts Grey, no way Harper is really THIS good. Traded Harper, Cano, Cueto (thinking this elbow issue is going to be a BIG issue) for Cabrera, Altuve, Harvey, Lucroy, and Perkins. I feel great about my side!

I can pick 1. Or 2 if I dropped either Rubby, McCullers, or Folty.

How do we feel about J.Nelson and Rubby? We holding on in 12-team leagues? Wada hit the pool, wondering if I should drop either for him.

I picked up Strasburg off waivers thursday hoping to get lucky buying low but he had a crappy outing last night. Would you hang on see if he turns around or pickup either Tanner Roarke, Hendrix or Telleson. I have C-Mart & Perkins as Relievers.

Big CF question of the day – Eaton rounding into some form it seems, but gets Keuchel. Stick with him or go for Gose who faces Weaver?

14 team roto with BB’s, K’s, XBH and hits added. i’m weakest in HR’s/XBH, and only drafted melky since player rater liked him so much, i got him very late compared to ADP. drop Melky for any of lisper/joyce/dejesus/aviles/BROCK HOLT/? no big deal is all of those guys get off for lefties, as i have rasmus to play LF at least some of the time. I have arcia stashed too for this spot and will likely go back to him once MIN does.

2. same league, stick with valbuena (esp good since he counts as CI/MI, backing up both lawrie and plouffe) over middlebrooks or headley?
