Razzball Exclusive!  The Twins were seen on Saturday at the Factory Outlet Mall in St. Paul, shopping for an outfielder.  Unhappy with the selection — everything was odd-sized or someone they had called up and sent down numerous times — they headed back to the car, deciding to go on to the Duluth Shop ‘n Zoo, a place, contrary to the name, that doesn’t sell animals.  When they got back to the car, they realized they forgot their change purse in the mall.  They raced back, but it was too late; it was gone.  Frustrated and angry, they asked to use Spencer Gifts’ phone because they didn’t want to incur long distance charges on their own.  Fed up and at their breaking point, they called up Byron Buxton, while also spotting a gag gift, fake vomit, that they shoplifted, figuring they can use it to play shortstop.  Here’s what Prospect Mike said this offseason, “Buxton is ranked numero uno on my Top 50 fantasy prospects list, and it’s thanks to his ability to fill all five roto categories.  He might be the closest thing we have in the minors right now to a first round fantasy talent with the power to hit 20 homers, the speed to swipe 30+ bags, and the ability to hit for a high average. Injuries limited him to 137 plate appearances in 2014, but that shouldn’t stop the 21-year-old from seeing the majors later this season.  The ceiling is a perennial All-Star outfielder and a top ten fantasy player overall.  In short, he’s wonderful and Grey’s terrible.”  Oh, man, c’mon!  In Double-A this year, Buxton had six homers, 20 steals (in only 59 games!) and was hitting .283.  At points during this season, Mike has compared him to Carlos Gomez.  That sounds like an apt comparison, which isn’t the same as roomier with two bathrooms.  That’s an Apt. comparison.  You should grab him in every league.  Yes, even that 10 team league, where it’s you playing against nine of your email aliases.  By the way, I can’t believe you’re losing to [email protected]  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:

Brian Dozier – 2-for-5 and his 13th homer, hitting .265.  In the 30 for 30 “Brian and The Doz,” Brian Dozier discusses his life on the Twins and how no one outside of Minnesota knows who he is.  The Doz says, “One time I was wearing my jersey in an airport and someone asked me if I was a fraternal or identical twin.”

Joey Gallo – 1-for-4 and his 4th homer.  Hang ’em and bang ’em, Gallo!

Leonys Martin – 2-for-4 and his 4th homer.  Hey, it’s my favorite Martin.  He was in this past Friday’s Buy column, and he’ll be in this upcoming one if you don’t pick him up.  Only you can change the future.  The more you know, NBC.

Francisco Lindor – 1-for-2 as he was called up by the Indians.  Unlike Buxton, I expected this and why I kept telling you to grab him.  Prospect Mike did a great job of breaking down both huge call-ups yesterday.  He calls Lindor Alcides Escobar-like; I thought Lindor was more Elvis Andrus-like, and, now that I think about it, I think they’re all the same player.  I will call him, Alvides Andcobar.  That sounds yawnstipating with a side of stretching one’s arms, but Lindor has one thing they don’t have.  No, not truffles.   He has unknown.  Unknown excites people, unknown leaves one with promise of a better tomorrow, unknown wears a paper bag and tells jokes on The Gong Show.  If Lindor hits .400 in his first month, he’ll have way more value than Alcides or Elvis could ever, because people will think this is Lindor’s norm with no cliff, and definitely no Carla.  For that reason, I’d grab Lindor in every league.

Corey Kluber – 5 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.54 vs. Alfredo Simon 5 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.58.  This matchup was billed as, “Kluber vs. Why Use A Club When You Can Use A Gun?”

Nick Swisher – Lands on the DL with knee issues.  His sideburns said, “We can only do so much!”

Justin Verlander – 5 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks as he was activated from the DL.  Five innings and two earned with two Ks?  Where would you ever find that on waivers?  There’s no other pitcher capable of such wonderful!  Fo’reallies, 95% of the streamers in your league could give you the same as Verlander.  Unless, of course, Mirror Selfies is a category in your league.

J.D. Martinez – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 12th homer, and his 2nd in as many games.  Also, in Sunday’s game, Miguel Cabrera (3-for-4, 3 runs) hit his 14th homer, because wherever J.D. goes, Swiggy follows.

Pablo Sandoval – 2-for-4.  Due to tightness in his quad, he left Saturday’s game early, then played on Sunday.  Is doode serious with all of these day-to-day injuries?  I guess when you’re a 315-pound bleb day-to-day is to be expected and living in a bubble is too meta.

Eduardo Rodriguez – 4 2/3 IP, 9 ER.  I told you, E-Rod, before hanging out with other Red Sox starters, you need to say, “Circle, circle, dot, dot.”  That’s just obvious!  Well, that was a terrible start obviously that had The Regression Fairies dancing on the graves of many ratios, but I’d try to hold Rodriguez for another start.

Mookie Betts – Has been out since Friday after crashing into a wall.  I blame Sandoval, because on Thursday he gave Betts ideas, by showing him his Kool-Aid Man costume.

David Ortiz – 1-for-2, 3 RBIs and his 9th homer, and his third homer since Thursday.  Or Thirdsday if you’re reading fast.

Danny Valencia – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  Danny Valencia sounds like a stage name for a bad actor, “For my audition, I’m going to do the scene ‘eating the Old 96er’ from The Great Outdoors.”  Sadly, he’s bad at acting like a full-time player too.

Chris Colabello – 2-for-5, 3 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .343.  I want them.  Every Blue Jay hitter.  They’re like Canadian Coors, which I believe is Molson.  This goes for everyone in the Blue Jays lineup, minus Bautista and Edwin, because they’re dealing with shoulder injuries.

Ryan Goins – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 5 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .235.  And that’s Ryan’s comings and Goins.

Kevin Pillar – 2-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI and his 9th steal.  Pillar strikes me as a guy that some ‘perts are going to say is a sleeper next year, and you’re going to draft and hold for about three days next April.  Please don’t mention Michael Saunders.

Aaron Sanchez – Hit the DL with upper body soreness.  Sounds like he needs to decompress at a spa.

John Ryan Murphy – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs.  John Ryan Murphy is the Yankees backup catcher and the guy most likely to share a name with a world leader’s assassin.

Sonny Gray – 7 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 1.60.  I love my boy, Sonny, but his ERA is obscenely low.  There’s no way he can keep this up.  Aw, geez, the internet’s made me cynical.  Thanks, Al Gore!

Billy Burns – 2-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI with his 12th steal, hitting .313.  I wonder if his teammate Graveman ever wants to call him Billy B. Urns.

Ben Zobrist – 3-for-5, 3 runs, hitting .219, which sums up his year so far.  Well, that and his two homers.  Zobrist is the new blech.

Chris Heston – 5 IP, 2 ER, 11 baserunners, 6 Ks.  Damn, Johnny Vander Meer’s great-nephew made the trip all the way from Baton Rouge too.

Rubby de la Rosa – 8 IP, 0 ER, 10 baserunners, 6 Ks.  C’mon, Rubby, are you just messing with me now?  I’m gonna start calling him, Blowme de la Rosa.

Ender Inciarte – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 9th steal, hitting .288.  He hasn’t quite flipped the script on everything we know about a nationality like the Pollock in center (0-for-4, 1 RBI, hitting .319), but Inciarte has been more than respectable.

Corey Dickerson – Due to a flare up of his plantar fasciitis, he left Saturday’s game early and didn’t start in Sunday’s game.  If you own Dickerson, I’d say there’s about a 100% chance this happens all year with a margin of error of one percentage point.  When you have the fasciitis, it’s like all I’s are on your feet.

Nolan Arenado – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 16th homer.  This game was in Miami, where the weather usually calls for a hurricane, but yesterday they had a Torenado sweep through.

Charlie Blackmon – 1-for-4 and his 8th homer.  I wonder where the Caucasian Blackmon falls on the Rachel Dolezal situation.   They should start their own chapter of the NAACP, and name it, “We Shall Overcome Our Whiteness.”  This is a good time to reveal that I’m a white man that has been disguised as an Asian for 15 years.  Unfortunately, my cover was blown when someone asked me, “How much tip should we leave?” and I couldn’t do the math.

Mat Latos – 7 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 11 Ks as he returned from the DL.  Oh.  Wait.  What the Whatos!?  That’s more out of nowhere than Dallas Latos reading and comprehending more than 140 characters.  I still don’t trust Latos, but a start like that requires him to be owned to see if maybe his injury was the cause of his suckitude.

Martin Prado – Sprained his shoulder on Sunday.  The Marlins are calling him day-to-day, and he said, “I’m right here with a sprained shoulder.  Stop calling him every day!”

Mike Foltynewicz – 4 1/3 IP, 5 ER.  If you started him, you can just call him Mike $%!#*!*[email protected]$.

Jace Peterson – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and a slam (2) and legs (7), hitting .285.  Going on about two weeks he’s been hot schmotatoing all around town.

Juan Uribe – 3-for-5, 1 RBI.  Hasn’t done a shizzton recently, but every time Uribe gets more than two hits, I feel like he’s about to go on an extended hot streak.  This is likely confirmation bias like you thinking girls who wear sweatpants are down-to-earth, instead of unshowered like yourself.

Dillon Gee – 3 2/3 IP, 8 ER.  Italian-American Mets fans are calling for the Mets to go to the Matzresses.

Travis d’Arnaud – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer.  Guess he was the catcher to stash on my DL instead of d’Evin.

Darrell Ceciliani – 1-for-3 and his 1st major league homer as he filled in for Cuddyer.  When Ceciliani homered, the camera cut to his mustachioed father, waving a rolling pin in the air– *intern whispers in my ear* I’m told that was Ceciliani’s mother.

Dilson Herrera – 1-for-3 and a slam (2) and legs (1).  You’re likely thinking, “Good for Grey, since he just picked him up.”  Well, it’s nice of you to remember that I said last week that I’m grabbing Dilson, but I also dropped Dilson on Saturday, so thanks for rubbing salt in my MI scabs that I can’t stop picking.

Juan Lagares – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .275, and hitting near-.350 in the last week, and has a hit in nine of his last ten games.  He’s shown Yunel levels of speed and power, which is to say not much, but he’s swinging a hot bat, and worth a flyer.

Jon Lester – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks.  That makes his ERA since I told you to buy him  on Friday– Okay, I won’t do that.  Yet.

Hector Rondon – 1 IP, 0 ER as he pitched in a tie game in the 8th, which shows that he either is the closer and this was the most important to pitch or Maddon is diddling around with the bullpen again or he’s turned into a direwolf and he’s not dead.

Anthony DeSclafani – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.36.  So, if you drafted Burnett, DeSclafani, Alfredo Simon, Keuchel and Sonny Gray, you’d basically be winning every league in the entire world.  Yeah, pitching’s where to invest at drafts.  Ri7ght.

Billy Hamilton – 2-for-3, 1 run and 5 steals, now with 31 steals on the year.  Pre-All-Star Game contest idea!  Hamilton tries to steal second base while Jon Lester is turned, facing 2nd base.

Collin McHugh – 3 IP, 8 ER, ERA up to 5.08.  Just about everyone who’s asked me about McLoser, I’ve said to move on from him.  It feels like he’s hiding an injury, and a Disgraceful List stint is forthcoming.  By the by, don’t say forthcoming in a real world conversation or the other person has the right to punch you.

Jose Altuve – Sat out two games this weekend after tweaking his hamstring.  You know how you string together popcorn to put on your Christmas tree?  Instead, imagine you stringed together pieces of diced ham.  That’s the size and fragility of Altuve’s hamstrings.

Evan Gattis – 4-for-5, 3 runs with four singles.  The chances that Gattis would get four singles is as improbable as anyone on the Astros, except Altuve, getting four singles.

Colby Rasmus – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, hitting .248.  Geiger, let’s go!

Luis Valbuena – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 14th homer, hitting .185.  He also homered on Friday, so he’s mostly Malbuena, but he could be a lightly warmed schmotato.

Lance McCullers – 5 IP, 0 ER, 4 BBs, zero hits, 4 Ks.  Well, if that don’t sum up McCullers, my name isn’t Grey Albright, Fantasy Master Lothario (don’t abbreviate).  He’s definitely worth owning, but you’re McCrackers if you think he’s safe.

Michael Montgomery – 6 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.89.  There could be something here, since he was once a top prospect.  As of right now, I’d continue to look at him through the eyes of the Stream-o-Nator.

Roenis Elias – 3 1/3 IP, 7 ER.  The Regression Fairies have a friend they call “The Gay Pope” that wears white sheet dresses, they celebrate the birthday of Gloria Gaynor every year and they will make ugly with your ratios.

Joe Ross – 8 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 8 Ks.  Why do I want to call him Jim Ross and put a cowboy hat on him in my mind’s eye?  Listen, wrestling and fantasy fans, Ross is in a surefire pickle with the bumps while stompin’ a mudhole and walkin’ it dry, but Strasburg and Fister have to slot in somewhere into the Nats rotation.  As a speculative streamer, give Ross a whirl, but I wouldn’t get attached like a 12-year-old to Mayim Bialik’s breast.

Bryce Harper – Out yesterday after taking a pitch off his knee.  He’s day-to-day, but his fate is in every fantasy baseballer’s hands that doesn’t own him but does own a voodoo doll.

Max Scherzer – 9 IP, 0 ER, 2 baserunners (1 hit), 16 Ks, ERA down to 1.93.  This reminded me of Digital Underground’s Same Song that featured Tupac in his first song, which was included in one of the worst films of all-time, Nothing But Trouble.  Scherzer was Tupac and the Brewers were Aykroyd, Chevy and Demi Moore in that godforsaken movie.  And you can’t stop this, Scherzer, go ahead and rock this.

Jimmy Nelson – 5 IP, 7 ER, ERA up to 4.60.  This just seems like a bad year to be interested in anything from Milwaukee, which just makes Laverne & Shirley sad.

Jeff Samardzija – 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.84.  Before we start patting each other on the bottom, happy with keeping the faith in Alphabet Soup, this start was vs. the Rays and even the Stream-o-Nator had nice things to say for it.  I still think there’s a 50/50 chance that he goes out and pitches a 7 IP, 6 ER doozy his next time out.

Chris Sale – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 3.01.  Yesterday, he threw 125 pitches, because he gets hurt three times a year and Robin Ventura is a knucklehead, as named by Nolan Ryan.

Jake McGee – 1 IP, 0 ER and notched his 3rd save on Saturday, and Kevin Jepsen (1 IP, 0 ER) came back with the save on Sunday.  As I speculated on Thursday and Friday, Kevin Cash looks like, for the ninth inning, he’s thinking strictly out of the Boxberger.  McGee is the go-to guy, and Jepsen was used because McGee had worked the previous three of four days.  Of course, for a guy named Cash, he sure likes change.

Jake Odorizzi – Resumed a throwing program as he works his way back from an oblique injury.  Hmm, that actually isn’t vague at all.

Nate Karns – 6 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners (1 BB), 8 Ks, ERA at 3.67.  Of course, this game was vs. the White Sux, which was also Rachel Dolezal’s favorite team.  The Stream-o-Nator has unflattering things to say for Karns’s next start, and I wouldn’t risk it in most leagues.

Yordano Ventura – Feeling better after leaving Friday’s game with irritation of his pitching hand’s ulnar nerve.  The nerve of this guy!

Mike Bolsinger – 4 2/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA up to 2.25.  Finally, he stopped looking like Cy Feller.

Andre Ethier – 2-for-4 and his 9th homer.  This makes me groan, so I’m not sure why I keep doing it, but, on our Player Rater, Ethier is now more valuable than Matt Kemp, Betts, Choo, Carlos Gomez, Heyward, Trumbo and Holliday, to name a few.

Gerrit Cole – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 1.71 as he notched his 10th win.  Cole + my teams = Glove.  Damn, math was close there.  Was supposed to equal “Love.”

Cole Hamels – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA down to 2.96 vs. A.J. Burnett 9 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA down to 1.89.  After the game, Hamels said, “I won’t waive my no-trade clause to the Pirates.  I don’t like the state they play in.”

Ben Revere – 2-for-5 and his 15th steal.  Elias Sports Bureau said Revere was the first player in a game not wearing a uniform number, but instead wearing an eBay auction bid price.

    The Seminator is killing my mojo, so I added Panik to replace him in my starting lineup.

    His three position eligibility makes me want to hang on but I’m already stashing Gallo and Choo as bench bats.

    Would you ride with Panik and keep Semien around in case he busts loose again, or lose either Semien, Hahn, or Shoemaker to add any of the following:

    1- Velasquez
    2- Graveman (RP elig for points format is a plus)
    3-Kyle Hendricks
    4) Odor

    SP- Scherzer Kluber Hammel Buch Quintana
    RP- Jansen Ramos Chavez
    BENCH- Shoemaker Hahn
    DL- Fernandez

    Thanks for staying up late Grey!

    Grey!!!!

    So much goodness spewing from this masterpiece!!! Really gr8.

    Started McHugh and saw his -15.5 points for the night and said to myself this can’t get worse. Then I looked across to my opponent for the week who started Pelfry and then I said…’Well the Fantasy Master Lothario giveth and the Fantasy Master Lothario taketh away.’

    Btw started McHugh because I was out options waiting for Stras, Odorizzi, Corbin, Moore etc to get back into action.

    NORM MACDONALD quote of the day:

    ‘Ah yes! Spring is once again in the air and the baseball season is yet again upon us. Now is the time when all teams try to emulate the World Series champion SF Giants while the Pittsburgh Pirates hope that a scientist ACTUALLY invents MAGIC!!’

      I also had McClunker going this week, as I lost my battle with the 2nd ranked overall team in the league dropping me to the 2nd ranked overall team in the league at 4-2.

            @Malicious Phenom: MP, no Pineda but had Miller for his awesome 1 pt this week. Seriously, hope he’ll recover from his injury he’s been a beast and was one of the players I could count on for 25 pts if the Yanks could have at least won a few games. Win some, you lose some. More important to be a good person in real life than a good player in fantasy!

        @Malicious Phenom: did u see that blowup on the philly bench? def soriano, I think giles may be the one to go, probably get more in a trade for him also over papelbon.Giles Looks like the guy on the couch who u get upset at for overstaying his welcome and you dont understand why

        • Drexel Hill Dragons says:
          (link)

          @Kevin Khederian: That blowup on the bench is not going to dictate the Phils trading Giles instead of Papelbon. Because of age, contract status and team control alone, that would make no sense at all. Watch for Papelbon to be traded in the next month and the Phils to eat a decent amount of his owed money.

          • Kevin Khederian says:
            (link)

            @Drexel Hill Dragons: the phillies arent going to be good at the major league level for quite some time. IMO they should trade both and keep the prospects from Giles and start again. Having giles on a roster that wont be any good doesnt make sense

    On this day in baseball history:

    1938 In the first night game played in New York City, Johnny Vander Meer pitches his second consecutive no-hitter, beating the Dodgers at Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field, 6-0. Four days earlier, the Reds’ southpaw held the Braves hit-less in a 3-0 victory at Crosley Field.

    Take that Charleton errrr, Chris Heston!

    Salvadorean (guess thats his full name) Perez been dropped in my 10 team OBP keeper. Noticed he’s having a big year so seems strange, would you use your claim on him if you own R Martin? And then look to deal him, or in a 10 teamer may not be worth it, dont really want to play him at Util.

    Grey, would you drop Longoria to have roster flexibility? Lineup is as follows in an OPS league:

    Perez
    Goldy
    Kipnis
    Arenado
    Crawford
    Adam jones
    Harper
    Blackmon
    Dickerson

    Salazar
    Wood
    Anderson

    I have Buxton, Dickerson, wil meyers, Ian desmond, and segura to fill my two utility spots and SS spot. Due to Dickersons nagging injury and desmond sucking it up lately, as of now I have starting meyers, Buxton, and segura. I hate to sit the other two so wanted your option. Thanks as always.

    10-team, h2h, 5×5

    Hi Grey,

    Tried to deal Bogaerts + Fowler for a pitcher but no takers. I want to get Correa and Myers back in the lineup.
    -I can drop Fowler and Bogaerts but was also considering dropping Hutchison because he has been utter garbage and I kind of still have hope for Bogaerts and it seems silly to drop Fowler (he’s ranked 107 overall currently).

    Who of Bogaerts, Fowler and Hutchison should I drop to make way for Correa and Myers? Or, is there someone else on the roster I should drop?

    Thank you as always!

    c-vogt
    1b-rizzo

    3b-arenado

    Goldy&Krod for Kershaw & S. Casilla

    Any reason I shouldn’t pull that trigger? Guy I’m trading with also has Sale, Sonny Gray, Shelby Miller…..any reason I should prefer those guys? I feel like Kershaw’s best days are still ahead of him this year. Thoughts?

    • Mrs.Featherbottom says:
      (link)

      @Adam P.: I try to never trade elite hitting for pitching, but if you need it, I think you should be able to get 2 legitimate SP 1s for Goldy. The offer that you are sitting on is not good. Why not offer Goldy and KRod for Kershaw and Gray, or Sale and Gray?
      Or better yet find another team and try to clean house. Gold’s value is far higher than any SP right now.

    I traded Dickerson for Syndergaard last week and was very happy with it until I read that Syndergaard might be moved to the bullpen. I was offered Cargo and Madbum for my Harper and Shoemaker, would you make the trade?

    For the sake of those holding E-Rod, it’s worth noting that the shellacking he took at the hands of the Blue Jays wasn’t nearly as bad as the stat line suggests.

    I watched his entire start… though they weren’t recorded as errors, Pedrioa dropped two pop ups in the sun and De Aza dropped one… all those weren’t errors because they never hit a glove, but the 5 run 3rd would have been a 1 run inning and the 3 run 5th might not have happened.

    Same thing happened to Bautista when Red Sox put up a 5 run inning later on…

    The sun was a major issue anyway. So hold with confidence.

    • Mrs.Featherbottom says:
      (link)

      @Nate: I watched the game too. E5’s slide in to second also could have been called as runner interference as he was about 5 feet from the base path. That being said, E-Rod had control issues throughout, but I think he improves from here on.

    I was offered Scherzer for Reyes, Carlos Martinez, and Mcann. I got greedy and asked him to throw in Robertson. Max throws a 16k 1 hitter, he says no, and that deal is never going to be offered again. Just stupid greedy bad luck all mixed together. Its a ten team h2h league, so finding adequate backups for mcanna and reyes is not that big of a deal. I already have Crawford and Lucroy if he ever hits. Dopey moves like that are why I shouldn’t ever respond to a trade request at 7:45 on a Sunday.

    • Ron D. says:
      (link)

      @romanazo: hell no

      • CMUTimmah says:
        (link)

        @Ron D.: Carlos Martinez is intriguing.

        In a keeper league, that’s a tough one, but it depends on situation. If you’re going for a title this year, have a legit SS and need pitching, then trading Correa is not a bad option, and you could do much worse than a kid like Martinez.

        I have Correa in a keeper as a “minor leaguer” as well as Joc Pederson. I’m pulling a Cubs and not calling them up until the beginning of next season, so I don’t start their contracts. So for me, Correa is untouchable as he’s a free draft pick next year.

        Situation comes into play, but I wouldn’t hate the move for Martinez IF you’re covered at SS, and it’s a “win now” keeper league year or redraft league.

    Shallow 10 team h2h league with 9 other aliases….

    1) Have the opportunity to trade Wacha for either Dickerson or Betts and of course both guys get injured this weekend. He (one of my aliases) also has Reddick, but he seems like a step down in upside. Told him I would wait a couple days for an injury update. Dickerson’s injury seems like it might be more of an issue going forward, so should I target Betts now? My team could use a little bit of speed:

    C McCann 1B Ortiz 2B Kipnis 3B Donaldson SS Desmond OF Trout OF Marte OF Souza UTL Teixera BN Moss

    2) Drop Moss or Souza for Buxton right now? My league has rolling waivers so there is no guarentee I will get him tonight, but if I do, would you still pursue a Betts/Dickerson trade or just see how he does first?

    3) Holding Reed hoping he would get the closer job back but it doesn’t look good considering Hudson got the save last night. Which of these options would you drop Reed for: Rodney, Boxberger, Giles, Jepsen, Motte, Hudson

    Thanks as always!

    Man o man Jace is my new hero. Won my week for me with his performance yesterday. Yes, I prevailed in the battle of the best buds.

    By the way Nothing but Trouble? Wasn’t that bad I thought. Weird as hell but there was something about it. John Candy in multiple roles? Early Demi Moore? Those nightmarish large baby-humans? The dinner scene with those weird hot dogs?

    My SS has been a black hole thanks to Desmond, and I have Lindor stashed in a minor league spot. In order to put him in the lineup, i need to lose someone. I’m hesitant to drop Desmond, because his talent is there and he can’t get much worse. My other droptions (new term?) are Wieters (Vogt can handle catching duties), Yasmani Tomas, or Hosmer. Thoughts?

    Another enjoyable write up…

    I’m having good problems all year… struggling to figure out who I’m going to drop because I don’t want to drop anyone… that’s a good problem to have.

    I’m overloaded on OFs for my league settings… and I’m in a pickle. I have Stanton, Burns, Maybin, Souza with Vogt as a floater (gross) and C Dick in a DL slot that is locking my roster down. Therefore, I need to drop one of these OFs…

    Based on needs (I’m currently good with power, since I have Abreu, Stanton, Tulo, Pujols, even Wong/Carpenter have hit their fair share, and a healthy CDick would make up any power lost) I’m leaning towards cutting your boy Souza over Burns and Maybin. Considering that Souza’s advantage is bags, and his ratios are pretty ugly due to his K rate, Burns and Maybin cover the bags, with much better ratios.

    Rest of year thoughts?

    I need to get out of roster jail so I can snatch up some of this young talent. haha, I said snatch…

    • A Wesley Snipes Life says:
      (link)

      @CMUTimmah: carpenter so far has quite a bit more than his normal fair share.

      • CMUTimmah says:
        (link)

        @A Wesley Snipes Life: Agree, not expecting him to hit more than 15-20 total, so 6-11 HRs the rest of the season seams reasonable Wong is probably in the same category. However, I also have Rendon off the DL, eventually he’ll hit his 15 more through the rest of the season, most likely, so I’m getting plenty of HRs from my middle IF and Corners. At least, enough to have a competitive advantage against most teams in my league for those spots as a whole.

        I have very few guys that can swipe bases (which is one of 15 offensive categories, so it’s not the end of the world) but if I’m going to have to choose between a guys, I usually choose category juice and OPS ahead of low average high power guys. Head to head leagues value consistency.

    Martin’s looked good latey. With Deshields hurting his hammy hopefully Martin gets another shot at leadoff and sticks there. I think he’s the better of the 2 players anyway.

    Shock’s line against TB is not impressive considering that’s the worst lineup in the AL. I mean there isn’t a single hitter that scares me. Souza may be the closest they have to that…

    Heston… only shows how bad the Mess lineup is. Duda does look like he’s slowly coming around though.

    Am I the only one who sees “buxom” when buxton’s name is mentioned? Speaking of which, why isn’t there a buxom smurf? I guess that explains why I saw buxom…

    DH- Carlos Santana

    Utility- Carlos correa

    Bench: Josh reddick, Byron buxton.

    Available bats on free agency : wil Myers someone dropped him yesterday & will clear waivers tomorrow AM, jay Bruce was dropped today & will clear wed, Joey gallo, maikel Franco, Chris collabello, billy burns , Brock holt are a few available .

    Question for pitching does Matt Harvey have two starts this week ? I’ve heard conflicting reports that he will either have two starts or his second start will get pushed back because of Dillion gee. Also with the mets not sure if it’s true but I heard they would call matz up & put syndergaard in the pen to set up the closer for the time being , but as of now looks like syndergaard is scheduled to go tonight

    • CMUTimmah says:
      (link)

      @Bobby’s World: Mets are running with the 6 man rotation, so likely Harvey will not have two starts. If anything, Gee will get sent to the pen or down and they will call up Matz soon, and remain in a 6 man rotation to limit Matz, Harvey, and DeGrom’s innings. A young guy, a guy off TJ, and DeGrom who was a converted pitcher could all benefit from a year of limited innings, so I expect the 6 man rotation to hold true unless Niese continues to hit bats or they make a trade freeing up a spot. Let’s not forget Rafael Montero could get into the mix eventually as well, so I’m expecting them to go to the 6 man rotation and stay there.

      Any assumption that Gee is taken out of the rotation and Harvey will get that second start is a low percentage chance, IMO.

    I feel for Bolsinger, not just for his unfortunate name, but because sometimes it seems that Fantasy experts don’t like a nice story. Yeah, he’s not a hottie tottie and a little older, but so far–even yesterday, 7 k’s–he’s has been worth rostering. Sometimes factoring why he’s worth it in real life can help in fantasy as well. I’ll stick with the ball slinger a little longer.

Can you address my needs? Currently everyone is very close so nobody is trading right now, unless you trade draft picks. What players should I add to the trade block?

    There is not much on waivers besides Duda, Garcia, Ethier, Span, Peterson, Andrus, Rollins. Pitching Shoemaker, May, CJ WIlson, Heston, Hutchinson and Fister who is on DL.

    Teams that are out of it have Wong, C Santana, Reyes, Kemp, K Jansen.

    Do your ‘T’, ‘H’, ‘A’, ‘N’, ‘K’, ‘S’, and ‘!’ keys get worn out by all the times you use them on here? I keed, I keed.

    If someone wants to do a salary dump with a player to you as part of a selling off deal (I’m the one buying), would you do it if it gives you a chance to win this year? Would hurt me a bit in future, won’t go into the full details but the ‘dump’ im getting is Mesoraco at $11 for 2 more years (ugh). Will he ever catch again?

      • Swfcdan says:

        @Grey: Well he is my main avenue to get a big score for this year (selling Franco), so I guess I have to suck it and see. There is certain rules in our consitution that reduce the penalty if I cut him (if he is on 60 day DL), so that would lessen the pain.

    I was online when the Buxton announcement was made & scooped him up in my 10 team OBP, H2H, redraft league. The problem is that I have to drop him or Billy Hamilton to make room for Vmart who supposedly comes back later this week. I have Ellsbury, Sousa, Springer & Kipnis to help me win SB’s every week so I think I can actually spare a few SB’s if Buxton is going to be more productive in the other 4 categories. The other managers in my league rarely trade. Can you make your best guess on his stats ROS (include OBP) to help me make a decision?

    Thoughts on a trade in a 16 team, points based keeper league. I’m looking to next year and can keep 5 guys. I already have the following (with keeper round) candidates:
    Miggy(1)
    Goldy (2)
    Salazar (10)
    Buxton (15)
    Travis(15)
    Hammel(19)
    Lindor(22)
    Joc (24)
    Simmons(26)

    With these guys already in the mix would you deal Salazar (10) and Uehara (wouldn’t keep) for Arrieta (18)? I’m just trying to accumulate as many keeper resources as possible and think Arrieta at an 18 is worth more than Salazar at a 10.

    My next question is going to be who to keep, but that’s for a later time.

    10 Team, 6×6 (OBP/SLG) (QS/IP), Keep 3 (1st year keeper) where you keep based on round they were drafted…looking for some advice…

    C: D’arnaud
    1B: Abreu
    2B: Odor
    3B: Frazier
    SS: Tulo
    2B/SS: Segura
    1B/3B: Vogt
    OF: J.Upton
    OF: Yelich
    OF: Ozuna
    OF: Leonys Martin
    OF: Grandy
    Util: LaRoche

    Bench: Dickerson, Morales, Devon Travis

    SP: Greinke, Arrieta, Tanaka, Syndergaard, Burnett, Buccholz, Strasburg
    RP: Rosenthal, Soria, Davis

    I am struggling in pitching right now (IP, K, QS) but I have strasburg coming back, I just acquired Tanaka, and I am on the lower end of Games Started (200 GS max)

    I’ve been unable to get any kind of offer for Vogt and as you said, there is no reason for anyone to trade for a Catcher in my League. My OF is a major hole, with Dickerson potentially screwing me all season long…I can’t even trade him for pennies on the dollar.

    Any recommendations on improving my bats? Waivers have pretty much been picked clean…I was thinking of maybe selling Greinke as he’s likely viewed as top 10, but I have enough good pitching to part if I can get an elite OF.

    Morning,

    14 team 6×6 head to head league with a min of 35 moves all year. I have delino deshields whom recently rattled his hammy and am looking to drop him for either leonys martin, kevin pillar, or mitch moreland. I have been subpar on both home runs and stolen bases. What should a guy do?

    Current roster:
    C: J. Lucroy
    1b: Adam Lind
    2nd: Robbie Cano
    3rd: Nolan Arenado
    ss: Adeiny H.

  179. Great writeup again.
    So, is Andrew Miller worth holding a DL spot for? We have 2 in my league. I have Corbin in the other one. I’d like to stash Devon Travis for next week in the event that Rendon takes a while to shake off the rust.
    I feel like Miller is a guy you drop since Betances has been so great. I really don’t think anyone’s going to grab him, and if they do i kinda feel like he’s probably lost the job.
    Do you agree?

    • @Devil in a New Dress: Streamy was creaming its jeans over Heston yesterday at $20+. That turned out pretty meh (horrendous WHIP), and it liked Vogelsong the day before at somewhere around $14, I think. That was a disaster. The moral for me when it comes to Streamy is heed your fear.

(we have saves/ holds in NL only 5×5 – 10 Teamer)———————————————————- my next question is, to I try and pick Fiers back up ? I have dropped him twice this year, or do I take, Lynn, Josh Johnson (DL stash), Ray, Garza, Capps (new closer in South Beach ??) ………………………………………. my stafff includes — Harvey , Cole, Liriano, DeSclafani, Haren, Morton , Melancon, Rondon, Ziegler —————- I got a Utility (flex) spot I can use a bat or add a 10th Pitcher, I plan on dropping the bat , as I am going to be way down in the pecking order this week for waivers, and am sure someone is going to obtain A Ramirez, whom was dropped last week—————————I gotta believe the Reds Fire sale is fast approaching……………. you think the Padres would give me a call back, since I emailed my application for Manager this morning………………..too bad for Bud Black, well manybe he and Blackmon can get a few games of dominos in? —————catcha later bra- DB

    Grey,
    I need to make room on my roster to add Jace to fill in for DeShields. Long story, but I finally need to move Dickerson from the DL since he is not DL’d. Is he worth dropping or should I finally drop say Yordano? I know it’s an odd question, but it’s one of those weird DL issues. I guess I also have Velasquez to potentially drop.

    Not currently carrying a bench bat (not sure how long I will be able to roll like this w/ Altuve dinged up).

    Ozuna has been meh. Drop for a hotter bat? or hold? Looking for overall production w/ a lean toward power if possible.

    dynasty OPS 14 team H2H. just got this offer, i’m guessing this is a no
    my marte/altuve/4th rounder (any pick that’s not top 10 overall or higher really aren’t worth much) for opp’s d.travis/lindor/soler/3rd rounder. lindor would have some more value in this league, as it also has fielding stuff like double plays/assists/put outs. roster is this
    d’arnaud
    lind/howard
    altuve
    c.davis

    I’m thinking since i have souza (recently, i waivered and used half of yearly budget to get him when some twit dropped him) i don’t need soler this badly to take the large step down from altuve to d.travis, and segura i’m sure isn’t much different than lindor,

    Whatup Gray,

    12 team 6v6 OPS and K/9. Was offered Pillar and DeGrom for Hanley and Tolleson. I have Myers and Soler on the DL, Segura at short, and have 3 other closers. Im in 12th place for ERA and Whip, but tied for second overall at 8-2. Just looking for some perspective, thanks!

    I’m completely dominating my league right now, but my whole team has pretty much fallen apart. Just lost Myers, still have the injured Dickerson, have Odorizzi and Miller on the DL already (only have two DL spots) and Longo left the game after getting hit on the wrist. I guess Myers is the drop, but who am I picking up:

    Maybin (will have to clear waivers tomorrow – I dropped him, can’t pick him up)
    Burns
    Moss
    Avisail
    Ethier
    Harrison

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

    *I was also offered CarGomez and Cruz for Miggy – but I couldn’t do it. Gomez is always hurt.

      @Wilsonian: could also give Schwarber a chance just to see what happens this week.

      Drop Myers, Moss

        @Grey: done. Thanks man. You think I need to be dumping Dickerson if he hits the DL?

        And would you deal Dickerson/Miggy for Springer/Cruz? I think I would, but I doubt he takes it.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

    Carrasco and Lindor for Cole.

    BFF, The Rachel Dolezal comments were effin classic, although I personally related to the Target Headline (Bug is responsible for Target Shizz and I’m responsible for Costco Shizz) Obviously I relate to to the Target comment cause there’s nothing that interests me there, nothing what so ever (I say that now, but Bug does come home with some bomb ass candy) Yesterday, the gal at the checkout was like, “Oh is it Movie Night?” Bug was like, “No, my husband just eats a lot of candy”. The gal probably looked up and down her 5’3″ 110lb body and thought to herself, “Yep your husband is either diabetic or 300lbs!” I’m neither, but I do love me some candy! Point of the story, Bug goes to Target and gets the stuff on the list. I go to Costco with 4 items on the list and spend $320 bucks when I was supposed to get Eggs, Canadian Bacon, Cokes and Marinara sauce. Obvious Costco Fail, so who’s our Costco Prospect? BTW, Rachel Dolezal changed her name while she was Howard to Rachel Moore and then filed a lawsuit against Howard for discriminating against her because she was white. Not only did she lose the case, but she had to pay Howard U 3k in legal fees. That shizz made me laugh, and laugh a lil Moore!

      I love candy too! I don’t know if I could deal with Costco… I go in, get overwhelmed and leave…It’s too much for me… That’s amazing about the lawsuit! Ha! I kinda want to watch her on Today Show tomorrow, but I also don’t want to feed her ego and hope she doesn’t profit off this shizz

    missed by 13 minutes and 16 in 2 others. redraft unless otherwise noted.
    1.over lind or choo in 12 team OPS’s? (or even buxton?)

    3. 20 team H2H with OPS/slugging. over alonso? already have d’arnaud/c-sant and alonso for catcher/1b/util.
