Was this the worst week of fantasy baseball in history? When was the last time we dealt with so many catastrophic injuries to big names? Pitchers going down left and right, literally. Hitter/Pitchers getting injured! Top prospects shutdown for weeks at a time? I spent the weekend drowning myself in cigarettes and booze. Do I feel better now? No! But that’s why I turned to Grey, his cackle, and nose for a good replacement in a 12 team mixed league. He’s not too shabby with the NL only leagues, if you know what I’m getting at… Regardless, we talk injuries this week, and some of the in-house replacements (i.e. Seth Lugo and Ross Stripling breaking ball love).

    Hey Ralph, keeper trade question for ya…one team in 2nd place the other in 7th place..

    Which side you like better:

    Machado & Contreras
    or
    Correa (15th round keeper next year) & Andujar (19th rd keeper next year)

    Thoughts on Correa this year & next

      @Johnny Be Good: I am go either way. Machado is the best player in the deal, but I like Andujar long term more than Willson.

      I think he’ll bounce back. The power is there, but he needs to do what he did early last year over a full season to justify his price tag. He should improve, but it’s a question of him taking the last, and very rare, step into superstardom.

    Can’t wait to listen and hoping for an update on Greys grandfather going after his x’s bestie
    Favor, 10 team roto and SS has been a killer for me. Picked up Kang on Sunday and Adames yesterday. Really want to stream German since SON loves him. Drop Kang, Corbin or Newcomb? My other starters are Pivetta, Bauer, cmart and happ. Thanks!!!

      @J-Hova: Dude! No follow up on that. I’m going to find out how the Big Cheese down in FLA is doing.

      I’d dump Kang

    Ralph, I’m holding Brendan Rodgers in a dynasty league. But Kyle Tucker, Derek Fisher, Christin Stewart and Austin Riley are all available. When do you think Rodgers comes up and plays? And would you dump him for one of those four guys? Fisher is mashing since returning from the DL. Curious what you think and if you can rank all 5 of those guys from a dynasty standpoint. Thanks.

      @KillerB: I’ve had Rodgers almost 3 years now. They aren’t calling him unless Story or Lemagay gets hurt or goes to another squad. Rockies and White Sox like a little gray in the beard before calling up prospects apparently.
