Nicholas Tropeano sounds like a sitcom character, doesn’t he?  Like that’s his real name, but he goes by the nickname of The Boof or simply Boof.  Then only his mom, Mrs. Tropeano calls him Nicholas.  Some girls call him Nick, but Boof or The Boof, that’s what you know him as.  At one point, he even went to a technical school with Arthur Fonzarelli and Joseph Tribbiani Jr.  I went over The Boof briefly the other day when he threw a five inning, meh start.  There I said, “Breezed through the minors as only an Astros prospect could.  What I mean is they don’t have a ton of major league options, so if someone does okay, they promote the crap out of them.  In Triple-A, he had a 8.7 K/9, 0.99 WHIP and a 3.03 ERA in 124 2/3 IP.”  And that’s me quoting me!  This Buy is more for AL-Only leagues and keepers (I’ll go over mixed league starters to stream in the post).  Shoot, this Boof buy could even be considered more for 2015 fantasy baseball.  Now, maybe I’m really just having residual feelings for what Collin McHugh and Dallas Keuchel did this year, but Tropeano looks like a $1 flyer in very deep leagues that could reap similar benefits.  I know it’s far from glamorous to put faith in Astros, but I’m likely to call Tropeano a sleeper for 2015 and point back to this post next year.  I’d love if his velocity was a tad faster to go with his nasty change, but The Boof could pay dividends for savvy owners in deep leagues.  Ayyyyy! *pounds wall, jukebox turns on*  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Edward Mujica – SAGNOF is a activity done by vultures without a soul, and I wanna peck the eyes out of Edward, The Last of the Mujicans, if he doesn’t get saves and just keeps giving up runs.

Drew Storen – Every once in a while a guy comes along that not only takes over the closer job, but looks better than his predecessor.  If only Soriano would’ve got canned earlier in the year, so Storen could’ve helped me with my save lead preserves.  Toast points!

Aaron Sanchez – Unlike Storen, Sanchez is on the other side of the SAGNOF spectrum.  The guy that is better than the closer, and is supposedly put in as closer, then he gets repeatedly called on in the 7th inning.  John Gibbons can eat a banana!  Actually, anyone can, unless you’re allergic.  Check with your doctor first before following this advice.

Wade Davis – Was a bit surprised to see him on waivers in so many leagues.  Sure, he’s only getting saves now, but he’s ranked sixth for all RPs for the whole year on our Player Rater, and if he gets a few more saves, he’ll end up fourth for all relievers.  Behind only Kimbrel, Holland and K-Rod.  By the by, our Player Rater is better than ESPN’s, but you knew that.

Kevin Quackenbush – Fun Fact!  Quackenbush’s outgoing voicemail message is voiced by Gilbert Gottfried.

Josh Fields – Maybe it’s Tony Sipp getting Astros saves.  Maybe it’s Chad Qualls.  Maybe you don’t care because you’re not this desperate.  Well, excuse me!  Ooh, I’m swooping my one wispy piece of hair over my bald spot and don’t need a closer.  Aren’t you Mr. Fantastic?!

Stream-o-Nator – *looking through pitchers, not seeing a guy name Stream-o-Nator, calls up ESPN’s Fantasy Department, put on hold while they gather people around the phone so they can laugh at another person who calls into the Fantasy Department, asks for a player named Stream-o-Nator, hears stifled laughter, hangs up phone, cries into mother’s bosom*  Stop your crying, little man?!  There’s no exact starters at this point, because everyone is either streamable or droppable.  Would I stream Vidal Nuno?  Oh, hellz yeah.  Yes, a ‘Z on hell’ yes.  Would I consider Jimmy Nelson?  I’d prefer not to, but I would if desperate enough.  Chase Anderson streamable?  Mos Def, Ms. Fat Booty.  Everyone is streamable if the shituation is dire enough.

Hitter-Tron – See what I said about the Stream-o-Nator, but replace pitchers with hitters and replace Ms.Fat Booty with a well-buttered bundt cake tin.

Tyler Flowers – You don’t send me to waivers for Tyler Flowers anymore… Sorry, I didn’t hear you come in and I was singing my favorite Streisand song.  *thinking*  …Okay, a top 5 Streisand song, it’s so hard to choose!

James Loney – In the last week, I’ve said about Loney, “Stop bankrupting my boner, Curt Schilling!…Gabe Kaplan in the Battle of the Network Stars…David Bowie asked The Wallflowers to unsing Heroes…”  Hmm, I’d never get a job for Zagat’s pulling quotes like that.

Gregor Blanco – The White Russian has been tipplering the scales near-.350 in the last week and has speed.  Yes, part of that week is being buoyed by his recent trip to Coors, but you can’t fault The White Russian riding on the back of a beer.

Dayan Viciedo – How many homers in one week does he need to convince you to pick him up?  5?  Wow, you’re greedier than me.  He has four in the last nine games.  Just missed your arbitrary cutoff.  Day-amn!

Gerardo Parra – Has hit in every game he’s started in September, and he’s only sat out one game, so that means *doing math in my head*  Taste the rainbow!  Hmm, my math is off there.

Alejandro De Aza – He had some shizzy luck this year.  De Aza could’ve easily been a fantasy number three to four outfielder for all mixed leagues if he just would’ve been the starter.  Oh, well, can’t cry over spilled milk as they say in war-torn Bosnia where all they have is donkey’s milk.

Jordy Mercer – Shrugs.  He’s hot, I don’t know.

Jed Lowrie – Didn’t do much all year, and he’s still not hitting for a lot of power, but he is hitting for average and he has to play every day because he’s the only non-catcher on the A’s.

Jose Ramirez – Didja know Jose Ramirez is used similarly to John Doe in South America?  “We got a Jose Ramirez here with his jort pockets turned inside out.  Third time this week we’ve found one like this.”  That’s from CSI: Bogota.

Scooter Gennett – If Scooter doesn’t wear a shiny green jacket every day of his life, then I have but one reaction.

Josh Rutledge – Basically, the Buy column this week is like the guy in Fargo who opens the back of his van for Malvo to buy black market items, only the van is stocked with MIs and SAGNOF.

Xander Bogaerts – In two weeks of September, he’s hit as many homers (3) as he hit in any whole month up until this point.  Also, pushing his average over .350 for the month.  Best month for Bogaerts since his image hawked Diet Coke, before that you have to go back about 40 years for a good month.  Talk about a dry spell!

Joe Panik – When you pick him up, please call up a friend and tell them, “I’m about to hit the Panik button.  Express to me in 150 words or less why I shouldn’t.”  Preferably a friend that doesn’t play fantasy baseball.

SELL

Rafael Soriano – See, blurb on Storen.  Then sigh.  Then release Soriano.  Simon’s not going to say anything, just do it.

Jimmy Rollins – “YES!!!”  Okay, Ryne Sandberg, take it easy.

Elvis Andrus – “The Rangers are holding him back for the playoffs, right?”  Comatose Rangers Fan, you might want to sit down.

Giancarlo Stanton – News sounds promising for next year, but you can drop him in redraft leagues.  On a related note, CBS might want to consider changing the name of their “Eye On Baseball” updates for Headley and Giancarlo.

Josh Hamilton – You staring at Josh Hamilton on your fantasy team, wondering if you should drop him is sad.  You’re depressing people around you.  Please don’t make someone step in and ask you if everything’s okay.  You’re putting people in an uncomfortable situation, and now they have less time to wait for people to like their pithy Facebook status and more time spent on worrying about your mental state.  You’re so selfish, I hope you’re happy!

Chris Davis – Who knew his nickname Crush came from crushing Adderall pills and sprinkling them on his popcorn?  I did not.  I’d love to be a Jeff Goldblum on the wall when Chris Davis and Carlos Ruiz were having a conversation.  “Yo, what’s up?”  “The sky, the birds, the tree leaves, the tree leaves are up, the planes, the clouds, the clouds are up, the high apple pie in the sky hopes are up.  What’s up with you?”  “The ceiling fan, the roof, a guy waving in a hot air balloon, the tree leaves are up for me too, my blood sugar says the doctor, test scores for inner city youth, my hand that I’m holding above my head.”  Apparently, it’s hard to get amped up naturally for a sub-.200 average.  If you own Davis in a redraft league, you can drop him.

    I’m using chris Davis as my 3B I’m in the playoffs and he was doing well for me last two weeks getting hits, runs and BB. Who do you say I should pick up as a 3b to replace him? Kindly appreciated keep up solid work!

    aw, no rusney castillo recommendation? pawtucket’s post-season comes to an end this weekend. i’m hoping he can come off my bench and fill in for beltran for last 2 weeks of the year. really whatever he does should be an improvement on beltran.

  7. Justin says:

    Weekly league is coming down to R primarily, but possibly AVG too. Start 7-game Revere who has been chilly in last 7 or 6-game Wil Myers who has been not so chilly in last 7?

    • Justin says:
      (link)

      @Justin: Bruce and Hosmer are also options for final spot, but with only 6 games per, and neither lighting up the R’s, I didn’t think I’d go that way …

    If you were only looking for K’s and a potential Win in a key H2H matchup, would you prefer Salazar or Lobstein in the CLE/DET game tomorrow?

    Stream-O hates Lobstein but his numbers have been pretty good so far.

      Salazar

    No comment on Kole Calhoun who has defied your Sell recommendation from last week? Would you still drop him or has he merited a keep for now?

    Is a one handed Ryan Braun appealing at all? Someone dropped him and I’ve been riding the hot hand in my second UTIl spot. Currently have Vargas and Matt Adams. Should I drop either of those guys for Braun? Thanks a lot!

    Hey Grey, I know you don’t like football, but maybe you could just be on the razzball radio show and make random comments in the background a couple times a week, the show loses something without your great presence. Great season thanks for all the fantasy advice!!!

          No problem

  14. I need a streamer Saturday, but I just don’t like Chase Anderson vs Tyson Ross. No QS scoring & a win seems unlikely against Ross. I know he’s pitching to the hitters, not Ross, so maybe I’m overthinking it. Kyle Kendrick & Hand is kind of a battle of mediocrity. Salazar scares me. The Tigers love fastball hurlers. I was thinking Miguel Gonzalez – 6 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 9 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA down to 3.22 vs Greene NYY. Whatda think? I know you said you like Chase, but wins add 10 pts. & no QS. H2H ESPN 10 team standard. Who you gonna call? F the Ghost Busters, I’m callin Grey!

    I’m the combination of God and Satan
    The humble shepherd, the son of lepers, the stuff of legends
    The cult leader, I’ve indulged in the most disgusting of pleasures
    Likeable and charismatic; my smilin face has been
    Enough to make a mother leave her children in a violent place
    I turn knees to noodles; I make my female followers
    Want me until they pussy’s drippin like fruit juice
    The pervert, the pathological, the prophet
    I’m the second coming, the Anti-Christ, the final conflict
    Who got nuclear weapons and a suicidal doctrine?
    The cult leader, and I’ll never stop until I got you locked in

    1) VERY nice call way back on 8/29 (Expanded Rosters = The Buy Bang Theory) telling us to sell Chris Davis.
    2) Cool that your cougar is a Pacers fan – most of us here in Indy are also extremely upset with George’s comments.
    3) Thanks for educating me on the proper way to spell hellz yeah – binge watching Californication and thought it was hells yes. No entry in my AP Stlye book., hellz yeah is so much cooler (and proper).
    4) Thanks for answering my question a few days ago recommending Trop before putting it in your column – I feel special.

    My question: with Cuddyer on my DL, yahoo blocks me from making needed pitching drop / adds – which batter do I drop? Leaning toward an OF because of quantity, but not quality. Batter bench size (3) too big for playoffs? 20 team Yahoo H2H getting ready for semi round next week.
    Roster:
    Devin Mesoraco- C
    Albert Pujols – 1B
    Jedd Gyorko – 2B,3B
    Josh Donaldson- 3B
    Joe Panik – 2B,SS
    Denard Span – OF
    Christian Yelich – OF
    José Bautista – 1B,OF
    U – Jordan Schafer – OF

    B – Adeiny Hechavarria – SS
    B- Rougned Odor – 2B
    B – Josh Reddick – OF
    DL – Michael Cuddyer – 1B,OF

    2 -SP, 3 – RP, 4 – P, 9 – B spots for P (one used to stash Smyly for 2015 keeper)

        @Grey: Hellz yeah I’m picking up a copy of that book! Not sure how I missed that one? So I’m dropping Reddick which means everyone should be picking him up because he’ll be going on a home run tear next week (probably some SB’s too.) Might trade Adeiny in for José Ramírez. Thanks again.

I know you like Soler (and I do too) but AJ Pollock has done well since he has been back and he plays 3 at home and 4 at Colorado facing only one good pitcher (Bumgarner). Meanwhile Soler has 7 games at home but he has to face Cueto, Kershaw and Greinke and the Cubs have been sitting him on Sundays. Hittertron likes Pollock ($10.2 v $5.9) too. Drop Soler for Pollock?

    was kicking major ass in semi finals 16 teamer, with wonderful ERA/WHIP, and could probably have handled two of these from yesterday, but not three of them . wada/nuno/carrasco (actually carrasco had a QS except for Lee F’ing him). QS league. i need to drop doolittle or mujica (also have mejia/storen) to have room to drop Nuno (@ COL next start, plus he was awful, but for first time in forever) to be able to stream 2 last guys. kendrick today as he is MUCH the best option i’m sure out of him/Hand/Holmberg, right? now losing losses/ERA, and whip but only a little on whip. still winning overall.

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: 2. same league as above. winning bases/homers/RBI’s/runs by decent margins, losing AVG. tied in steals, gotta bench somebody to keep lagares in lineup for those. ignore TRON on Gordon today and bench him? other options are to bench ozuna/dickerson/arenado/frazier/vargas (doubleheader). Tron says Gordon is best but he’s been bad for about 25 at bats now, if not slightly more. on sunday somebody will have day off to take this out of my hands.

I could’ve noticed the date next to his name when i added him, but that’s on me. I usually pick up streamers way before they play, and probably have only run into this once over the course of the year.

            @Grey: I don’t think there’s any provider (or even a setting) that lets you pick up a guy after first pitch on a given day and then use him on that day.

              @SteveNZ: i didn’t mean that, clearly i’m not trying to cheat. I meant if a game starts at noon, in my league if you try to pick up a player who’s game starts at 6 PM, you can’t, after noon. which i’m sure you aren’t defending (no reasonable person would) might want to read what i said there. I certainly wouldn’t be defending the idea of being able to change a player in the game he plays in. today was filled with good streamers (holmberg/kendrick), yet my opp had in advance picked Rubby/Lobastein. haha.

                @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Might want to check your own comprehension there big guy – don’t see any suggestion of cheating in what I said. Nor am I defending it, though your attitude kinda makes me want to.

                Ever since I’ve been playing fantasy that setting has been ‘inherent’ as you put it, in ALL leagues, from ANY provider. It’s not just your league. My guess is it has less to do with annoying fantasy players (though in this case it’s a enjoyable bonus), than it does with how ESPN, Yahoo et all run their daily stats updates. Maybe it’s a change that will come at some stage so you can make the change in the way you wanted to, but for now I’m assuming there needs to be a cutoff time for when you can swap players in an out and still have their stats included when ESPN/Yahoo run their daily stats update – and first pitch seems to me to be a perfectly reasonable option.

                  @SteveNZ: i never said you mentioned “cheating”. but i meant it was fairly obvious that i wasn’t trying to be able to change a player after HIS game started. To me if you could change a player after HIS game started, this wouldn’t be fair at all. You seemed to read what i said as if that’s what i wanted to be able to do. Since you claim that all providers do what you think i was bitching about, it’s clear you still aren’t understanding what i said originally. I’ll explicate this to make it obvious.
                  1. My espn league (i’m only in one)- allows players to be picked up the day of their games, unless a different game has already started that day, at which point if you pick up anybody it only counts for tomorrow. Grey mentioned above that it very well might not be inherent to espn that this be so. (if it is then it is, and i’m glad i’m finding that out either way)
                  2. I’m in many yahoo leagues , of one of 2 types. either daily -today which means i can pick up a player before THEIR game time, and their stats count for THAT DAY.
                  or the 2nd way, daily -tomorrow, in which all pickups count for tomorrow.
                  from this line “I don’t think there’s any provider (or even a setting) that lets you pick up a guy after first pitch on a given day and then use him on that day.” you either didn’t understand what i said above, or have never played in a yahoo daily -today type transaction league (this is very basic setting). They are pretty cool. you can grab players last minute, in case a pitcher changed happened, etc. You clearly did suggest that i thought it stupid that i can’t sub out players after their games started, which i never said at all. As far as comprehension goes, i’d love to hear the reading of what I said that makes it sound that way. I might need to grow in size till i’m a “big” person to get it though.

        • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
          (link)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: it’s weird, since in yahoo the transactions are either daily -today and you can pickup anyone till gametime, but nobody till 3 AM eastern for next day, or simply daily-tomorrow (which really sucks, since you can’t put in subs for last second benches/injuries, but at the same time CAN beat all your opp’s very easily to closer/injury replacements), but at least those are cut and dried systems of this. espn basically does both, daily-today until first game, then goes to daily-tomorrow at first gametime.

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
            (link)

            @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: for next year i’m getting this voted on if it’s editable, since i’m pretty sure damn near EVERYBODY thinks this is stupid, and the only reason nobody has whined about it before is they very well may think it’s inherent in espn leagues. What’s even to gain from that system. If Wainwright gets killed in traffic accident 1 hour before his late game gametime you can’t pickup a streamer for at least some stats? who’s gonna defend that. It also forces people to be able to edit their rosters multiple times a day when it’s not needed.

    G, i have one move left to throw a guy this week and hopefully eek my way into the championship. Do I go YoGa vs cin, Anderson vs sd or Garza vs cin? SON has greasy nuts and bolts for all of em, suprisingly, the most lubed for Garza. Yet it’s all rusty over the guys I actually own, Sonny and Teheran. Need these wins!

    Going catcher-less for the rest of the season. Castro was doing more harm than good and this opens up another streamer spot for the last two weeks. I’ll miss out on the 4R, 1HR, 2RBI that he would get me, but not having a .200 AVG from him outweighs the losses.

    Pick a streamer for next week:
    Kennedy v PHI (Burnett) – better matchup but he’s sucked lately
    Hutchison @BAL(Jimenez) – worse matchup but he’s been good lately

    Also for next week keep 2 of these:
    Benoit (7 games) – Black said he’s close if he gets through tomorrow’s bullpen
    Janssen (7 games) – is he going to share save opportunities
    Feliz (6 games) – will there be any opportunities against OAK and LAA?

    12 teamer where i’m on a bye. for next week i have this lineup and 8 pickups per week, and can prepare for best available starts now. f-her/cobb/mchugh/kluber/shoemaker/carrasco/keuchel. it’s likely best lineup i have anywhere. only have f-her since it’s a keeper i took over. thinking of turning keuchel into stream spot with all of these streamable minor/house/anderson/petit/hutchison/paxton/pineda/nuno. K/BB and QS.
    2. in different league (dynasty) i have pedroia. who to replace (i’ve dropped desmond to make room, don’t need desmond with cain/polanco). alcantara/panik/rutledge/valbuena. this is only till end of year gig, otherwise i’m sure it would be mendy. i don’t have roster space with a lot of other really useful players such that i have to bench 4 of polanco/morneau/carter/calhoun/soler/upton/k.davis/aramis every day already. i took over this team and it had a lot of bench bats, but they are good ones. 12 team league with BB/K’s/Slug/OPS in addition to normal categories.

    rosenthal possible injury (or something unexplained going on here). with guys on 2nd and 3rd and one out in 9th inning (and only having pitched once, yesterday, since the 6th) rosie wasn’t brought out, neshek was. neshek looked like shit and allowed 2 hits, and even then rosie wasn’t brought out. Only explanation i can think of is when neshek came in it was a 4 run lead, so barely a save at all, and maybe they didn’t want to “ruin his confidence” or something to that effect.

    I need to sit one SP today and I can’t have a bad ERA day….. Neise, Garza, Santiago.

    • Steve says:
      (link)

      Let me be more specific.. I’ve got a 7 K leads and .05 ERA lead. Last day of H2H. He’s got Buaer and Kuroda going. I’ve got Zimmerman, Neise, Garza, and Santiago going on the west coast. How many would you start and who? I can always keep an eye open and brign in Santiago with his late start if I’m behind in K’s.

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        So with a 7 K lead I could take a chance and only start 2 to match his 2 and wait on Santiago in case I fall behind in K’s. Maybe, IDK??

        • Steve says:
          (link)

          For him Match ups – Kuroda @ Balt and Bauer @Det
          for me -Zimm @NYM, Garza home vs Cinc, Neise home Was, Santiago home vs Hou

          • Steve says:

          • Steve says:
            (link)

            My problem is if I wait he’s starting 2. My only late strarter is Santiago. I’ll be down in K’s with only a 7 k lead and then i’ll have to start Santiago and hope he make up the difference.

            • Steve says:
              (link)

              I could go Zimm and Santiago since they are the safest and should be able to win K’s with a 7 lead going in and have the best chance of winning ERA?? Thoughts?

              • Steve says:
                (link)

                Or Zimm and one other ealy starter and hold Santiago for a wait and see how things go. If do what would go Niese orGarza?

    Grey:

    Heading into the championship week in my big money H2h league. My opponent basically punts saves because all of his closers are injured.

    Who is my drop with Doolittle coming off the DL:
    Reed
    Street
    Feliz
    Petricka
    Storen

    Also, his team is very heavy on SP. would you drop a second reliever for a starter? League is shallow so there are a lot of streaming options.

    Thanks!!

    winning ERA/WHIP by 1.33/.11, wins by 2, k’s by 27. losing losses by 1. should i bench
    keuchel @ LAA
    opp has
    kershaw @ SF
    garza vs CIN
    as long as i hold onto most of saves/era/whip it will be very hard for me to lose overall. i’m winning saves by 2 with 4 closers and opp only has allen/rondon/davis (holland had clean inning other day). looks like if either i get one save, or he has even one guy not get one 1 win those.

    Hey, Grey. Really close matchup in h2h, whoever wins goes to the championship.

    I’m up 1 QS and 2 Wins, but he picked up Volquez and Santiago this morning and also has Kershaw starting.

    I have Petit going, but am thinking about adding Vargas vs. BOS. You think he has a good chance of getting QS/W without hurting era/whip too much?

    It looks like I might make it through this week. For next week, do you like Bogaerts (3 @ PIT, 3 @ BAL) or Rutledge (7 @ home)?

    Also, pick 3:

    JD Martinez (3 @ MIN, 3 @ KC)
    Avisail (3 @ KC, 3 @ TB)
    Myers (6 @ home (NY and CWS))
    De Aza (6 @ home (BOS and TOR))
    Soler (7 @ home (CIN and LAD))
    Lind (3 @ BAL, 4 @ NYY, 4-5 v. RHP)

              • royce! says:
                (link)

                @Grey: Well, I’d be playing him at IF, moving Bautista to the OF, meaning that I would have to pick from Soler, Vargas, De Aza, Myers, and Avisail for UTIL.

                Since I’ve got you on the line, all things being equal, would you play Andrew Miller, Ken Giles, or Aaron Sanchez? We count 5×5 plus Holds and K/BB.

                  Grey says:

                  (link)

                  @royce!: I’ve had good success with Giles and his role is probably a little more defined in comparison to the others, but I did read that his workload is being ‘managed’ over the last couple of weeks.

                  Also, Avisail has a pretty tough matchup in Shields tomorrow – something to be aware of…

    ok, so unless prado from this point get three more runs than a.jones i’ll do no worse than go 6-6-1, and i have the tiebreaker, having gone 13-11-2 during season. turns out i likely would’ve won only if i had played keuchel and got another win (that was was risking losing whip and maybe ERA so good decision there). kershaw/garza did tie wins (likely) right now. to even make it this close opp has out total based me today by 13 so far, and those are tied, but him winning those don’t matter. desmond/superfluous H/walker jacked up his bases while i have only 10 today so far.

    Is there any point in holding Ackley? Need a bit of roster flexibility for the H2H semi.

    Next week’s opponent coming off a HUGE week…

        @Grey: Gotta say my team looks pretty lame without Giancarlo. Whole bunch of my other guys hit under .200 for the week.

        Hopefully it means they’ll have a big one when the stats actually count.

      @SteveNZ: i had to drop him early this week. bone spurs doesn’t sound like something that he’ll suddenly hit a hot streak again with, or even play often.

    wow, actually will go out from benching keuchel and opp getting three wins out of kershaw/garza/betances. had to also get out based by at least 15 for that to have happened today. team’s hit around .230 for last 2 weeks, and just few enough homers to miss covering it, unless somehow betances doesn’t win. thanks o’day. on to less monetarily important leagues. wouldn’t have thought not trusting keuchel was my final choice (wonder if that makes me want to draft him higher or lower next year), and it was the hammer. now i have to root against my own closer, if K-Rob blows it i’ll win. he has pitched 2.66 innings last 2 days…

      @goodfold2: opp had 2 homers for first 6 days of the week, and needed all three of the ones he got today to win bases by 3.

        @goodfold2: wow, even further wrinkle, he has to blow up but i’m only winning whip by .02, so it can’t be bad. just one more hit, then 3 str outs. or an error.

        • goodfold2 says:

          @goodfold2: NOW i need outs from K-rob, suddenly rooting section completely flips.

            @goodfold2: wow, THAT was some hair raising shit. it’s funny if NYY manager just knew that you probably shouldn’t put in a tired robertson in the first place i’m out. If either Betances just pitches 9th or anybody not tired does. won whip by .01

                @Grey: sick part is my opp had to hit at least 26 total bases today to even have the chance he had (he got 28, hitting over .400)

    Championship week, currently playing Wong at 2b. He hasn’t been doing much and seems to be benched once or twice a week, so I want to make a move. I can put Rendon at 2b and pick up Uribe, who’s got 3 games in coors this week…or Baez, B.Miller, D.Santana, Plouffe are also available. I’m leaning Uribe, what would you do?

      @Tom: he’s benched for lefties, same as he always has been throughout entire year, so you can check in advance.

      Baez

    still alive, but now it’s down to top 4 teams of season, and i’m up against a team that actually should beat me. Dropping Alcantara to grab Lagares (tired of a team that was 3-4th in steals all year only getting 2 each of last 2 weeks), will i guess keep Jose Ramirez to backup both Harrison/Mookie. 4 pickups left and have Wada/Familia to drop. Could grab 2nd bench bat for off days/short day thursday. (de aza/mercer/other white fish/uribe if arenado is actually hurt). so i’ll have at most 4 stream spots for next week. i already have 11 starts to opp’s 10. pick best 4. could be 2 from same day, if need be.
