I’m OCD about my iTunes.  I listen to a new album a few times, pick out some songs that I like, five star them, and then play them endlessly until I’m sick of them.  My top 20 for most played is embarrassing.   I like Lil Wayne more than anyone should ever admit.  Sometimes I have a song on repeat, and I’ll get a phone call (rare; only old people use the phone for calling people), the doorbell will ring (less rare; Cougs orders a ton of shizz on Amazon) or I’m just called away from my desk for some reason.  Then I’ll forget I have a song on repeat and I’ll go to lunch, dinner or…No, those are the only reasons I leave my fantasy cave.  When I come back and see a song’s play count has been artificially boosted with me not listening, I will edit info in iTunes and reset the play count to where it was before the accidental repeat.  It’s important to have a gage to tell how much you like a song.  Do you like it enough to play it 200 times like, say, Aloe Blacc’s Red Velvet Seat or do you like it enough to listen to it 120 times like, say, Tom Petty Yer So Bad (actual play counts)?  Why do I bring this up now?  Because Rick Porcello should roll his win count back to 15.  21 wins?!  C’mon!  That is misrepresenting him in every conceivable way.  Yesterday, Rick Porcello went 9 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.08, to move his record to 21-4 <–LIES!  He’s pretending to be Eazy E vs. Johnny Cash (great song; play count 278) when he’s really Randy Newman’s Short People (good song, but you ain’t listening to that nonsense more than once every few months; play count 59).  His ERA isn’t even accurate.  It’s saying, “I’m Bon Iver’s Skinny Love (play count 175),” when it’s really You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb by Spoon (play count 96).  The only thing that is sort of legit is his 0.98 WHIP, but that’s more Men At Work’s Overkill (play count 186) legit.  Have a season, Rick Porcello, but you are so Rihanna’s Diamonds (play count 86) and not Martians vs. Goblins (play count 365).  Also, if you want more, we talk about Rick Porcello on today’s podcast.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Mookie Betts – 1-for-2, 2 RBIs and his 31st homer.  Now, he’s Weezy, cause real g’s move in silence like lasagna.

David Ortiz – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 35th homer.  Cage the Elephant’s Shake Me Down?  Okay, I’ll stop now.

Dylan Bundy – 5 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 4.13.  I’m not deterred by Bundy’s September (5+ ERA).  Not as much as maybe I should be, but he was jerked around in middle relief for a while and he’s likely tired.  Would I own him right now in redrafts?  Nah, you lose your hair and brain?  I’m talking more for next year.

Steven Matz – Could return on Friday.  *busts out handy Mets pitchers updates’ chart, moves finger to line that says “could start, and says he ‘feels good'”  Okay, so Matz will be shutdown by Wednesday after having a setback.

Noah Syndergaard – 3 2/3 IP, 5 ER.  “It’s a beautiful day here in Queens for the Wild Card one game playoff.  Taking the mound for the hometown Mets will be Bartolo Colon…”

T.J. Rivera – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  Yesterday, I said he could be a hot schmotato.  Today, I say yup.

Freddie Freeman – 4-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 31st homer, hitting .302.  His season totals don’t say the full story.  At the All-Star break, almost four months into the season, you didn’t even want Freeman on your team.  In 110 less at-bats in the 2nd half, he has 15 more RBIs and only one less homer.

Dansby Swanson – 3-for-5, 1 run, 3 RBIs and his 2nd steal.  You thought shortstop was stacked for next year?  Dansby could break out too.

Jhoulys Chacin – 5 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 5.26.  True story alert!  I can’t spell genius without a spellchecker, but I can spell Jhoulys.  Someone should get together a bunch of baseball bloggers and have us do a spelling bee with players’ names.  I’d potentially misspell Javy Guerra as J-U-N-I-O-R Guerra.

Nomar Mazara – 1-for-3 and his 19th homer.  Honestly, seriously, awkwardly sentence intro-ly, Mazara may have cooled off a lot, but he’s having a solid rookie year for a 21-year-old.

Martin Perez – 7 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 4.14.  I don’t trust Perez at all, Stream-o-Nator hates him every time out because he gets no Ks, but — and this is a well-sculpted Serena Williams-type but — I’d stream Perez in his next start.

Addison Russell – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 21st homer, hitting .247.  Can throw him into the same blurb as Dansby, but Russell’s even further along.  Hopefully, not too far along, meaning he’s not always going to be this .245 hitter we’re seeing.

Willson Contreras – 1-for-3 and his 10th homer.  He’s only played in 68 games and he already feels like yesterday’s news compared to Gary Sanchez.

Jason Heyward – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer.  Wow.  Seven homers in September?  How is this the same guy that hit that beautiful home run in his first career at-bat?  I’m half expecting him to say I’ve been playing the last two years with a broken wrist.  Any hoo!  He’s hitting near .350 in the last week, and might be hot.

Jason Hammel – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.56.  On most teams, he’s a #2.  With that said, does Hammel even make the Cubs’ playoff rotation?  Not to answer, but–Actually, no, you can answer.

Brandon Phillips – 1-for-4 and his 11th homer, and 2nd homer in the last week and hitting near .300 in that time and can you tell I’m trying hard to make Phillips sound appealing?

Carlos Martinez – 5 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.16.  If you started him in Coors, you got bigger peanuts than the walnut sitting on top of your shoulders.

Randal Grichuk – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 23rd homer.  How much wood can a Grichuk chuck in Coors?  We’ll see over the next two games.

Clayton Kershaw – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, as he was on a 90 pitch count (he threw 88).  That’s after 64 pitches his last time out.  In two weeks, he’d be able to take the “Dusty Baker workload.”

Madison Bumgarner – 7 IP, 0 ER, 1 baserunner, 10 Ks, ERA at 2.57.   Bumgarner and Puig had some words during the game that nearly led to a fight.  After the game, Puig said he’d like to apologize for…And then he listed about 300-some odd things that he legitimately should apologize for, in a scene reminiscent of Chunk confessing in The Goonies, but for Bumgarner, Puig did not apologize.

Hunter Strickland – 0 IP, 0 ER and his 5th blown save.  Strickland’s shaping up to be Casilla’s equal.  Derek Law started the 9th, gave up a run (officially but it was coughed up by Strickland), Javier Lopez was used in the ninth, couldn’t record an out, Will Smith got buff, unfunny, stopped rapping and got Tom Cruise weird.  The Will Smith on the Giants came into the 8th.  I have no idea where Bochy’s going next, but it could be anyone wearing a Giants jersey.  Even you Matt Cain.

Steven Souza – Will have hip surgery on Wednesday.  I.e., the fat lady is singing with a Souza accompaniment.

Evan Gattis – 1-for-3 and his 28th homer.  Isn’t it weird that Gattis has 28 homers and it feels kinda ho-hum?  It is weird.  That’s why I was asking.

Jharel Cotton – 6 IP, 1 ER, 2 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 1.50 vs. Brad Peacock – 5 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 2.86.  Cotton came out ahead of Peacock, which is also an ad for underwear.  I have no faith in Peacock, but Cotton’s softening my trust fall.

Ryon Healy – 1-for-4 and his 11th homer, and 4th homer in the last 10 games.  Brandon Drury is hella schmotato, but Healy’s hella hella schmotato and that ain’t hella bad, you feel me?  Okay, please stop.

Bruce Maxwell – 1-for-3 and his 1st homer.  He sounds like a lineman, and, he looks like one too.  To me, he profiles as a Kennys Vargas-type, and I wouldn’t bother with him outside of streaming a catcher.

Ryan Dull – 1 IP, 0 ER, in the 7th inning.  Hmm, okay, so Madson’s the closer again.  Dot dot dot.  Until he came into the 9th inning, gave up two runs and lost the game for the A’s.

Taijuan Walker – 5 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.32.  Ah, Walker, you are so flaky.  He’s been around so long it’s easy to forget he’s only 24 years old.  At some point, I think the results will match the stuff.  I’d be lying if I said I knew when.

Leonys Martin – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer.  If you batty called Martin, you had nothing for the entire day, then as the last game of the night concludes, you get a Martin homer.  You, sir, are living right.

Edwin Encarnacion – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 41st homer.  Whether it’s fair or not, Bautista scares me to death for Edwin.  Like an old stripper twerking, I’m worried at any moment the bottom will drop out.

Marco Estrada – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.62.  Look at Estrada with the Ponch outs!  He had been in a terrible post-break slide (5.47 ERA in the 2nd half going into yesterday), but, with two weeks left, we’re trying to cling onto whatever we can, and maybe Estrada could have a decent final couple of starts.

Clayton Richard – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners,  2 Ks, ERA at 2.98.  I’m not being daft when I say I don’t trust him.  I mean, I am daft, but this is not the reason.  He has a 1.64 WHIP and nearly a 4 BB/9.  Clayton’s WHIP is almost the same as Clayton’s ERA, the good Clayton.

Wil Myers – 1-for-2 and his 26th homer.  I told you he didn’t retire in August!

Yordano Ventura – 9 IP, 3 ER, 10 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.35.  This was his 2nd complete game of the season and career.  His last complete game was followed by an uninteresting 5 IP start vs. the Rays; his next start will be vs. the Tigers.  Will it be good Yordano, bad Yordano or ‘You threw the first punch, so book ’em ‘dano?’

Billy Burns – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 17th steal.  Burns has been functioning as a 4th outfielder, which makes no sense to me.  The Royals feel like a better club with Burns at the top of the lineup, setting the table even if they don’t have Billy Butler to feed.

Kendrys Morales – 1-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 29th homer, hitting .262, and this was his 2nd homer in as many games.  I’ve told you to pick up Kendrys about twenty times in the last thirty days. The first fifteen were friendly, next three were antagonistic, and the last two were “I’m over it.”

Paulo Orlando – 1-for-4 and his 5th homer.  I liked Orlando better when he was called, “Which way to Epcot?”

Jose Abreu – 2-for-4 and his 25th homer, hitting .300.  His rookie year, he had a great 1st half, poor power production in the 2nd half.  Last year, it was pretty even between the halfs.  This year, no 1st half, solid 2nd half.  What’s next year?  We’re out of options.  I have no D on this SAT question.  Your pattern has me flummoxed!

Carlos Rodon – 4 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.29.  You know what this is?  Rodon’s really committed to be a 2017 sleeper.

Wei-Yin Chen – 4 1/3 IP, 3 ER as he was activated from the DL.  Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “Isn’t it fantasy football season now?”

Giancarlo Stanton – 1-for-2 and his 26th homer.  Only 24 more to go!

Danny Espinosa – 1-for-2, 3 RBIs and his 22nd homer.  Member when he seemed to be breaking out in June?  That seems almost as inconceivable now as why anyone would keep his beard all summer.

Daniel Murphy – Didn’t start yesterday with left leg soreness, after Dusty Baker originally said Murphy had a pain in his buttocks, but since Murphy is a homophobe, he clarified.

    i swore id never do this but….

    FIRST

    Dynasty league (16 tm 8×7, OPS, TB, K’s) where ive got a ton of depth at SS (Russell, Story, Mondessi, Swanson), what do you think would be a reasonable package to try and get someone like rizzo ? Offered up Judge/Story/Mondessi and the 19th overall pick (have 3/10/11 in this upcoming draft), but will probably fall short. Without giving you the whole team what is a worthwhile trade offer for both sides?

    yeah, i traded porcello too early a month and a half or so ago in a 16 team dynasty (with holds, K/9, and QS over wins) when i flipped porcello + britton for salazar + strop (strop is replaceable in a league like this though). not due to salazar’s injuries since but how much more i could’ve gotten had i held porcello a little longer. i even just found his ass in FA post draft at start of year too.

    a. Loved the Murphy blurb, so truly gay and jolly.

    b. Loved Espinosa’s beard – I rode that beard in June. But his HRs have been so few and far between since, the beard started getting in the way. How does anyone kiss him with that beard? Don’t answer, maybe he has sex like a wolf – once per year. I would gladly accept wolf sex! Went off track there, sorry.

    c. Horatio Caine (aka CSI Miami) quote of the day (September 20)

    Radio Announcer: This supercell is massive, folks. It’s parked itself over the entire county. Expect rain and high winds over the next 24 hours. Gusts of up to 80 mph have downed trees and power lines. The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for the day.
    Horatio: This tornado touched down just minutes ago Dispatch confirming a CSI unit has arrived at the trailer park where we have a report of a dead body. Over. MDPD. Hello?
    Eric: I’ll check the hall. Clear!
    Horatio: Three tornadoes have touched down in the last hour. This has developed into a life-threatening situation.
    Eric: Where are you guys? Horatio is recalling everyone back to the lab. Get back to me as soon as you can. H. , Ryan and Walter picked up a call on their way out of Hialeah. They’re at the trailer park near Kendall.
    Horatio: Kendall is in the evacuation zone.
    Eric: Yeah, they’re already reporting funnel clouds over there. We have got to get them out of there.
    Walter: She’s still warm, Wolfe. Plus she’s wearing her pajamas.
    Mr. Wolfe: She must have just woken up when she got attacked.
    Walter: Look at this picture. She lived here with her parents.
    Mr. Wolfe: Why did they leave her behind? I don’t understand. This place should have been evacuated. The evacuation was, like, an hour ago like, 30 minutes back.
    Walter: Maybe she got hit with a blunt object, like these golf clubs?
    Mr. Wolfe: Maybe so.
    Walter: I’m going to call into Tom and see if we can get permission to move the body. Dispatch. Dispatch, this is CSI Simmons, over.
    Dispatch: Ryan, Walter, come in. Come on, guys.
    Walter: Eric, take a look at this. Take a look at that.
    Mr. Wolfe: Oh, yeah.
    Walter: Dispatch, I repeat– this is CSI Walter Simmons. Over. Dispatch, I repeat– this is CS
    Mr. Wolfe: All right, I’m calling it, man. We got to get out of here before things get worse outside. All right. All right, cut all around the body. We’ll save as much of the crime scene as we can.
    Walter: This is getting worse.
    Mr. Wolfe: Yeah.
    Eric: Ryan, Walter, come on, guys, pick up the damn radio! H. , we’re not going to make it. We’re not going to outrun this.
    Horatio: We don’t have a choice. Here we go. Hang on, Eric. Hang on!
    Mr. Wolfe: We got to roll her up. We got to find a closet!
    Walter: Yeah! Wolfe, I got it!
    Mr. Wolfe: Walter! Hold on! Walter! Catch! Hold it! You got it?! Pull the line! Hold on! Hold on! Walter: Wolfe! Hold it! Wolfe! Wolfe! Wolfe!
    Mr. Wolfe: Walter! Walter! Are you all right?
    Horatio: Ryan? Walter, where’s Ryan? Ryan?! Walter? Where’s Ryan? Ryan?! Ryan?! Ryan?! (cue the queue of sunglasses).

    Cheers,
    Ante

    Nice one!

    I feel like Stanton’s value is about as low as it will be for a while. Toying with the idea of trying to acquire him (at $21) in my keep-7 keeper league, but not sure any offer would really make sense based on the guys I have. Do you think there’s a reasonable Stanton offer in here based on the below crop of my guys?

    Betts ($28)
    Rizzo ($33)
    Kershaw ($30)
    Khris Davis ($6) (is he really much different from a less injury prone Stanton who hits .250?)
    Schoop ($5)
    Moncada ($3)
    Tim Anderson ($8)
    M. Franco ($11)
    Hammel ($5)
    Kennedy ($3)
    Guerra ($5)

    Thanks!

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

        @Malicious Phenoms: Thanks, Ralph and MP! Yeah, I feel like Kershaw would be accepted in short order, but “keep bats over pitchers” logic aside, Kershaw is just so much better and less risky right now.

        I like Franco and Anderson. Don’t think he would accept it without someone flashier, but that’s definitely the sort of level I’d be looking at.

        I thought about something involving Khris or Moncada . . . but Khris doesn’t seem THAT different from likely 2017 Stanton production, and Moncada at that price has way too much upside to trade for an injury-prone guy, right?

    So, I think someone asked about Tomlin above, but I’m considering streaming him today (v. KC $13.1). That said, he seems like one of those guys who fakes out the SoN.

      @moldyforgoldy: I’ll second this one moldy. Needed the QS in roto. Its an absolute dogfight here these last weeks.

      Actually, that 5 and 2/3 inning start against the Dbacks on 16AUG could be equally blamed. But still. Ouchies.

      At least we have… Bart?!? LGM!!

    Need some help deciding who to pitch tonight. 12 team h2h league, QS instead of wins and a 50IP minimum. Do I use either of Iwakuma at home vs Toronto or Tomlin at home vs royals? Gonna have a few sketchy starts (Bauer vs CWS, nova vs. was, and tomlin vs. cws). Gonna have to start at least two of these guys this week more than likely.

    okay — I need some help with a start/sit decision in my championship matchup, please!

    I have these guys: (Matchup/OPS vs. R/L/OPS Last 7days)
    Healy: Musgrove (RHP)/.860 OPS vs. RHP/1.302 OPS Last 7 days (@OAK)
    D. Santana: Brault (LHP)/.990/1.139 (@MIL)
    C. Santana: Volquez (RHP)/.871/.840 (@CLE)
    Dahl: Wainwright (RHP)/.881/.857 (@COL)
    C. Carter: Brault (LHP)/.936/.777 (@MIL)
    K. Seager: Happ (LHP)/.766/.733 (@SEA)

    I’m thinking Seager is the sit — bad split, cool last 7 days, bad park) — but it is hard to ever sit him. I could also sit Chris Davis (facing Rodriguez (LHP), and he has a .732 OPS vs. LHPs and a .459 OPS over the last seven days), but that just seems crazy.

    Nothing to be embarrassed about in that most played list. Lovin the Kanye MBDTF. Maybe a tad heavy on Weezy but whatever.

    Thanks for recommending Cotton yesterday. Couldn’t get the W but I’ll gladly take the ratios. Plus I have Giles so got a save out of the deal. Hammel managed a W. And of course, Syndergaard was my worst pitcher by far. Because baseball.

    10 team dynasty, keep everyone forever(29max). Need some roster flexibility for the championship(2 week H2H). Starling Marte is rotting on my bench thanks to expanded rosters.

    Should I trade Marte, Paxton and Joe Ross for David Price and Craig Kimbrel for flexibility and win now?

    Or is Marte worth too much in the long run?

            @Grey: Most of my personal listening is podcasts. I listen to podcast in the car or when I’m working out. It’s strange for sure, no idea why I’d rather hear JB’s voice or your cackle over music when running, but for some reason I do. Now that I think about it, if I ever go skitzo it’s all Razzball’s fault. Actually sometimes I disagree with you guys out loud, so maybe I am skitzo, or my neighbors at least might think so.

    10 team league, keep 4 hitters, 3 pitchers
    6×6 H2H with OPS

    Loaded on offense, keeping Trout, Torenado, and 2 of Lindor, Odor, Yelich

    Pitching I have Hendricks, Verlander, DeGrom, Taillon, Chapman

    Who should I keep? Sagnof finished me in 1st during reg season, but Chapman will be a closer wherever he goes, make him worth keeping?

    Thanks for a great season!

    Jacob deGrom will undergo season-ending surgery later this week to repair ulnar nerve damage in his right arm.

    As previously speculated. The right-hander has been experiencing arm trouble since August and wound up making just one start in September (on September 1 against the Marlins) for the Wild Card-hunting Mets. He finishes with a 3.04 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 143/36 K/BB ratio over 148 innings. If the Mets make the postseason, they’ll probably be working with a patchwork starting rotation. But that’s been their situation for a while now. rotoworld

        @Grey: Was it me or did it feel like Brandi won two of the plates and she only lost because of the corn meal. DJ Scratch and Pickled Mushroom made a bigger error in his appetizer. I seriously think they let David stay just to watch him melt down. Nothing that guy made sounded good. The cherries…really? maybe a dollup of whip cream to break up all that. Such a bad season

          Yeah, was disappointing all around… Brandi could’ve won, but I didn’t really care if she did, and it wasn’t like she did anything that really wowed me… David was a joke

        @Grey:

        10 team 6×6 (count holds)

        Guy i’m playing in the championship has 3 holds guys 0 saves dudes. I currently have 2 saves guys ( Oh and F-Rod) and 1 holds (Rivero). Should I just keep one saves guy and go crazy streaming SPs? Was thinking of dropping Rivero and either Oh or F-Rod to stream both Smyly and Manaea tonight…and then I would be left with 3 other streams for the week. So I should hopefully win out on saves…and just lose out on holds…my other SPs are:
        Thor, Kersh, Yu, Hammel, Lugo, Ivan Nova, and Gausman….who all pitch again and Gausman of course going tonight and sunday or should I just hold righ now? I like these starts tonight for smyly and manaea though…

    Didn’t have time to read until now. Ha ha. Once I saw Freddie Freeman, I knew you were going to rip his ribbies. His one SB helped. That’s okay, I can take it. What hurt was picking up Gsellman and resting Teheran since they were crossing streams. Ouch. I think I kept Gsellman for the second start. Still in it to win it, so we’ll see how the rest of the week goes.
