Oooooooooo wweeeeeee can you smell that smell? What’s that, it reminds you of college? You smoked a lot of pot back then, you say? In this new age of legal cannabis, we call that the smell of Colorado; choice buds, and baffling roster decisions. No word on whether or not one impacts the other, but I’ll leave that to the courts. Why all this talk of chronic? Because I attended a pot wedding with a bunch of hippies this weekend. The whole Jon Gray demotion was going on while I was…Hmmmmm… What was I doing? I can’t remember. Any the who, we dig into Ronald Acuna Jr’s return, and the Rest-Of-Season Player Rater’s expectations for him. We spend a little time on news and notes, as well the list of Lucky/Unlucky Pitchers we teased last week. It’s a jam packed episode for reals! Big shouts to our sponsor Rotowear for lacing Grey and myself with the finest tees known to mankind.

    16 team dynasty. h2h 6×6 with hits and OPS, and k/bb and QS. wasn’t expecting to contend this year but currently in 5th 6.5 games back. top 6 make playoffs.

    roster is C-flowers, 1b-encarnacion, 2b – eduardo escobar, ss-xander, 3b-machado, of-mazara, then I rotate the following for the other 2 OF spots (span, brinson, polanco, thames, para), util-aguilar, then i rotate between the aforementioned OFs for my other UTIL spot, BN-culberson, wilmer flores, munoz
    SP-sale, pivetta, loaisiga, domingo german, morton, alcantara, bassitt, covey, caleb smith, buehler, tropeano, cahill. RP-peacock, hector rondon, greene, seranthony, kela, chad green, dyson, strickland, will smith.
    My minors roster is pretty loaded-tatis, adell, trammell, yordan, will benson, rodgers, corey ray, wander javier, kyle lewis, lutz, jojo romero, graterol, allard, kaprelian.
    was offered bryant and heaney for my buehler, tatis, adell, and trammell but i talked him down to bryant for tatis, trammell, and one of buehler or adell. adell is shooting up prospect lists but my pitching obv ain’t great. buehler probably going to get shut down for IPs before playoffs however. if you’d do the deal at all, would you rather include buehler or adell?

    thanks

    Heard Tyler O’Neill is getting called up for a cup of coffee. Would you trade Marco Gonzalez for him?:)

    Ralph,
    Have you seen the lineups that Enyel De Los Santos has being facing of late, they are like major league teams. The AAA Yankees like 5 or 6 times already and the AAA Twins like three times.

    Ii hope he gets a cup of Coffee to replace Velasquez, even if it is a one and done, that way he can show them what he can do.

    Do you think, he will get the call?

    Ralph,
    It looks like the Dodgers are looking for their 2B of the future. Rylan Bannon started the season as the 3B of Rancho Cucamonga and then he was going between 3b and 2B for a while. Now it seems like he has been playing 2B only of late.

    Are we going to see him in AA soon?

    Yo Ralph, are you doing a mid-year prospect ranking this year? We’ve got our prospect draft coming up at the all-star break, and your list is usually gold for me. Help a brother out?

    Looking forward to your rankings. This will help make my mind up but who is the bottom 2? Antuna, Luis Garcia, Mitch white, wander Javier, Khalil lee, Nathan Lowe,. I have been a bad fantasy baseballer. Haven’t checked up as regularly as I like. I just missed out on o’niel cruz and ornelas. Any names I should search for? Thanks as always Ralph

    Grey, I don’t get to listen to the Podcast often (today was 3rd listen of the year?), but what happened on the Great American Baking Show call back? Crickets?

    You should check out and work your way into “Nailed It” on Netflix. From your audition it sounds like this show would be right up your alley!

    Happy 4th and careful with this sun cooked bugs!

      I need to be on Nailed it! They said they’d contact people end of June/beginning of July… I prolly didn’t make it, because I’m terrible!

        @Grey: Haha. Sounds like a cool life experience either way. The wife and I started watching season 2 of Nailed It and it reminded me of your baking audition and the light bulb went off! Haha
