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.

    So I’ve been riding Jones/Joc/Reddick/Harrison in my 4 OF slots. I have Myers and Dickerson on the DL right now. Arenado and Duda make up my UTIL slots and Longo on the bench. I do also have a slot that I’ve been streaming from. Rios is coming back tomorrow. Do I snag him for another body in the OF? And if so, who do I drop?

    8 Team H2H – H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBPS

    Could you give some examples of players that you would deal Harper for, straight up?

    Outside of Trout, Goldschmidt, and Stanton, I’m not sure who I’d rather have. I could see the argument for a Rizzo or Kershaw.

    How many pieces would you look to get back for Harper? Springer + Archer enough, or aim higher, or try to meet more needs with a third guy?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Sounds fair, I prefer to get one player

  14. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    In my 16 Team H2H (5 Player keeper league) I put Tulo on the block. Received an offer of Moustakas for him, which I don’t think is enough. Would you deal him for someone like Crush or Dozier instead?

    H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBPS

    My other keepers coming into this season are Jones, Stanton, Upton, Goldy. I also have Correa laying in wait and can pick up Kang to cover SS while Correa is in the Minors.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d take Crush or Dozier

    • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: In case it’s helpful, I just traded my Tulo (w/ Forsythe, simply b/c I was going to drop anyway) for Dozier + Correa, so a Dozier-level guy is definitely there.

      Fangraphs is keeping the Tulo optimism going (they are saying this is purely mental due to wanting a trade), which maybe boosts the likelihood of another owner believing in him.

  15. Harrison Ford in Air Force One says:

    Trade Zobrist for Correa?

    I sold my soul to the fantasy overlords years ago so I guess I’m buying Chris Carter over Makiel Franco. (Dropped Crush Davis) when he went 1-75 the last 3 weeks (I know, stupid me)So is this a solid move? Waiver wire is picked clean for 1st/3rd

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      You want Carter but dropped Davis because he was striking out?

    Trade question. Roto 14 team keeper league. My A McCutchen and 2016 round 3 draft choice for His R Braun, Glen Perkins and 2016 round 1 draft pick.

    Currently in 2 nd Need steals – so this doesn’t help there, but the extra 1st pick might.

    Pull the trigger or hold?

    also im surprised you didnt have turner as a BUY. hes likely to get nearly everyday ABs because of mattingly, has SS eligibility on Yahoo!, and he hits in the middle of one of the best lineups in the NL.

    Grey, great read! My Friday is complete!

    More on Lindor, can I get a sneak preview. I been debating picking up, because I have old, beat up Hanley and any second he could stub his toe and be on the 60 day DL. There are guys like Rollins and Miller sitting on waivers but they haven’t done squat. The guy in last place or is have a awful year picked up Correa. So eventually he will be good. Bryant, Pederson, Correa and Seager. I think Lindor may offer me more these Miller and Rollins…

    Also, what your thoughts of Steve Matz

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks! If Rollins is on waivers, you don’t need Lindor… Matz has no path to the rotation

  27. Keith Law says:

  30. Frank rizzo says:

    I don’t see any kind of sale happening for Harper. His value is so high that I wouldn’t know where to begin and who to ask for. No one is asking me for him because they assume he’s untouchable.

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      @Frank rizzo: a top 20 player and somebody else thrown in for your harper. people who believe he’s untouchable might do that, if they assume he’ll keep this up.

    Traded wacha for carrasco and betts a few weeks back…still trying to tinker with my team.

    i always find myself owning porcello to round out the back-end of my rotation, which may mean i’m a masochist . we have limited moves so this would be a rest of the season. Also, we use K/9 and QS as categories. Who would you recommend me dropping porcello for?

    Grey! Every year I read your site I grow a little more fond of that moustache and yadi yada yada lets get to the business!

    12 team. Waivers once a week on Sunday.

    1. I have to drop one, but which one? – Avisail Garcia, Soler, Choo
    2. Eric Hosmer is my Util. Should I drop him for a Hot Shmotato?
    3. Which three are your favourites – Hahn, Hendricks, Rodriguez, Roarks, Rodon
    4. When, if ever, are you thinking of picking up Patty Corbin.
    5. How long is your moustache?

      @Clint:
      And on the side, I own Harper in an 8 team h2h points and 12 team roto leagues. Without me boring you with all my roster information, can you ballpark what you’d target in trades? 2:1, 3:1, 1 vet, 2 prospects? Both leagues are keeper leagues.

    Haha – I told the guy in my keeper league to sell Bryce Harper 2 days ago. He said I was nuts. Here are the reasons behind my argument:

    We keep 6 players, but can only keep a player for 5 years. You can keep him a 6th year IF you forfeit a keeper spot AND your first round pick. You cannot keep a player for a 7th year. Bryce is in his 5th year, therefore, he can’t keep him next year (6th year) without the poison pill. He’s not going to hit like this all year, well, it’s improbable. THe manager does not think he’ll be able to win the league this year with his roster as is.

    I told him he has 3 options:

    1. If he keeps him next year, he’d have to hit a home run on a lot of draft picks to compete next year. OR he trades him for some picks next year, and becomes a contender… If you don’t think you can win, punt the season.

    2. Trade draft picks for next year and go for it this year.

    3. Trade Harper for pieces to compete this year.

    2 of the three involve trading Harper. The other punts next year. It’s either punt a season or trade Harper.

    Harper & Thor – Archer & Arenado

    Harper & Thor – Harvey & Arenado

    Harper side in both deals correct?

    *disregard my other question. Yes, I dropped Davis when I was pissed off drunk and grabbed Franco for whatever reason. There’s no 30 bomb powner on waivers besides Carter. I meant power numbers who’d u rather. Obviously Carter. I’m 2nd to last in Avg so I’m pretty much punting avg. I have a 35 run/rbi lead and 16 hr lead. 15 roto points ahead of the field. If that helps. My team is C Martin 1st Tex 2nd Desheilds SS Tulo/Crawford 3rd Donaldson/ Franco
    OF Harper Marte Joc P. Mookie, Springer & Span.

    Hi Grey, going back to you for thoughts on a mega trade. 4X4, 10 team keeper league. Top 4 spots are back and forth and I’m in mix. Here’s the deal:

    His Adam Jones, Carlos Gomez, Samardizja, Kimbrel, Pedroia and Choo
    for my Rendon, Harvey, Hosmer, Avisail and Lawrie.

    All my guys are very cheap keepers. Of his guys, Gomez and Shark are solid keeper prices. I have Sale, Kershaw, Madbum anchoring staff but have a lot of ground to make up in ratios.

    You said “meh” to this early in week. But have substituted Shark for Paxton and I see you might be discounting Avisail now given his knee (and prefer Choo).

    Other possible dumpers in league really don’t have much to offer. I hate giving up Harvey and Rendon in particular, but will do it to win. Hosmer and Avisail are question marks to me. Rendon might have an off year, and he and Harvey have injury risk …

    What do you think?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Honestly I would never trade this many players at once

      • Jacks says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Yeah, it’s scary. He and I seem to do these 10-12 player deals every other year, one dumping to the other. Here are my assumptions:

        1) Pedroia will equal or better Rendon this year.
        2) Carlos Gomez is the speed plus power guy I lack (Polanco has disappointed). SB represents lots of points, and would rather not play a one category SB guy.
        3) A Jones is significant upgrade to Hosmer (utility spot, Duda and Freeman my 1b)
        4) Choo is decent replacement for Avisail
        5) Shark is downgrade to Harvey, but not off a cliff downgrade.
        6) Kimbrel is likely to improve and his job is solid (I have Uehara, Box, Soria, Doolittle)

        So, I think this trade puts my offense over the top and I lose a phenomenal starter but get a very good one plus a terrific closer. Any of these assumptions patently delusional? thx

    Grey-Happy Friday. 6×6 roto IP, W, S, ERA, WHIP and holds. I am in the hunt but losing ground in holds current staff is Harvey, Kluber, J Chavez, C McHugh, D Salazar, Boxberger, G Perkins, Cody Allen, and Kelvin Herrera. I also have Doolittle on my DL who could be activated anytime. I have been thinking I need to trade a closer and get a holds guy and perhaps a slight upgrade on offense somewhere. With Box and Allen having issues and Doolittle just coming back do you think I will end up with additional holds from Box and Allen so just sit tight? I am not able to make roster changes unless someone either goes on the dl or gets sent down. If I activate Doolittle who would you try to trade or get rid of to take his place? Thank You very much.

    Evening, Grey! Your articles bookshelved a freelance project today. Appreciated!

    Dilemma of the night. I wouldn’t mind taking Segura off the DL, but his replacement LeMahieu has been good. The situation with Avi Garcia, though, is making me want to make him the drop. Do I drop either of those? Or just wait it out, see how Segura does before activation. I have Bolsinger pitching tonight and he could also be a candidate if he doesn’t do so hot. Or I can just keep Segura stashed on the DL until I absolutely have to make a move.

    Thoughts?

    Trying to pull of two trades, need both for it to make sense. OBP league/

    Bautista for Cole

    Richards and Fowler for Jones

    upgrade on the pitching staff, and probably equal in the OF (with the OBP loss, but health with Jones)

    if I can make it work, do you like? Otherwise I am hesitant to move Bautista straight up for pitching

    i know the SON ratings and they vary from 7.4-13.6 but which is best of these for tomorrow only
    quintana @ HOU
    elias vs CLE
    wada vs KC

    Quintana has best rating but has been the worst of these three lately. Elias is not liked by FIP. Wada doesn’t have enough innings to show up in FIP.

    gotta play three of these guys today franco/polanco (back to 1st again, manager really yanks him around)/heyward (not lefty day)/souza (back from injury, and was terrible last time for about 2 weeks when that happened). Hitter T says Souza/Polanco/Heyward. Soler’s HR already benched. Tron says don’t play Burns but i need steals so i am.

    in my bigger money league that i was on fence about franco or souza today, felt kinda perturbed at self for looking likely bad on fence-type decision (only from outcome, decision was good at the time, with all available info), till i noticed that my opp, who’s beating me in about all hitting categories this week, didn’t change his lineup from yesterday, resulting in (too many BN bats makes this even possible of course)
    my opp’s joc/cain sugar/goldy/mostsuckass and 1 of wilmer/guerrero being benched for these humps: alexei ram/melky/delino (off today)/iglesias/holt. Of course my opp also has Tulo, so sometimes it doesn’t matter when your ignorance should hurt you, Tulo with 2 homers in one day, 2 total for 55 days or so before today. Neat. He couldn’t have started that stuff on monday the 1st?

    16 team roto redraft where i’m still in 15th, having to try to scramble up some decent hitters, drafting puig/tulo early, and ortiz as highest drafted 1st. Hosmer is really only guy who’s doing much better than draft slot. J-Zimm is my ace, and i’m sure you can guess how that’s gone. After yesterday’s E-Rod start i grabbed him immediately dropping the TOR orange man, as he doesn’t always play vs righties (although much more than he used to), and can probably get him back later. now with this staff, somebody dropped quintana few days back:
    quintana/E-Rod/j-zimm/hughes/rubby/nelson/wada/liriano/morrow (DL). (nelson and rubby doing real great today, homers all over the place). only need 1550 innings max and have 5/6 of the possible RP i could have (holds league, axford/fields/j.smith/tolleson/a.miller).

    1. who’s the SP to drop?
    2. which of these do i fill that roster spot with
    a. 6th RP in one of scribner/capps/hatcher/rosscup/caminero/shaw/fien (holds/saves/net saves and holds, K/9 and K/BB and OBP against here too), and later walden when he’s back (and stashed when i have room later)
    or
    b. streaming hitter slot (i’m behind 3 games at most positions), options remain jose ram/valencia/shuck/e.rosario/muncy/beckham/cunningham/chirinos/j.butler
    or
    c. just hold all those pitchers for now

      • A Wesley Snipes Life says:

        @Grey: got ya, but i need counting stats fairly badly, and look at bottom of screen and see -3 or -4 on games projected. My holds and net saves are pretty good (11th-12th best). I didn’t mean to own those guys, but like valencia for lefty days etc, this guy when he’s hot. Morrow is in DL slot, don’t need to drop him, just listed him as guy that i’ll have later (actually it sounds like he’ll be back soon anyway). so who’s drop other than morrow?

    Garza was dropped in my NL-Only H2H league a couple of days ago. Waste my #6 waiver pick on him and spot start him till he figures things out? Can he figure things out? If so, drop Marco or Betancourt?

    Cisheck is on FA. Thoughts on grabbing and stashing him for a comeback like he did a couple of years ago?

    Was thinking that a Brantley home run might even been enough for the braindead Mariner mgr. to give Carson Smith a shot at closer. Your thoughts. I’ll try a $5 bid in NFBC and hope that he’ll get a chance sooner than later. He’s been lights out the last 1 1/3 years. Rodney freaking sucks.

    – Richards
    – Carrasco
    – Syndergaard

    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.

    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?

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Meh, I’d hold

  217. Skeezix says:

    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?

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

      @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)

      • Skeezix says:
        (link)

        @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).

      Grey says:

      He’s worth it over Pax

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

    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)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Sure 2. No one

    • Fred Garvin MP says:
      (link)

      @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.

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

        @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.

    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

        @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.

    Harper/Springer/Carlos Santana or Goldy/Gomez

    I could possibly get a smaller piece added to the Goldy/Gomez side, like bucholz or paxton.

    Thanks!

    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 .

      Yeah, have no desire, he doesn’t seem like he could even remotely pass for Hendrix, and that’s from someone who loves Andre and doesn’t really understand Hendrix

    1850 innings cap k/9 roto 8 team league. Been struggling with my pitching staff getting a combined 7 points in era/whip/k9. My staff is Lester, Arrieta, Shark, Bauer, Yordano, Garret Richards, Wood, Bradley, britton, rodney, hector rondon, aj ramos, ziegler.

    Verlander is a FA. Drop Archie Bradley for him? Do you prefer Kyle Hendricks or Nathan Karns? Thanks

    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
