Freddie Freeman (1-for-3, 2 runs and 1st homer) wasted no time making the Braves regret the way they treated him this offseason. First at-bat, Freddie Freeman stepped towards the box, but first he asked to see the mic the umps use to announce the bad calls they make to the crowds. Freeman leaned into the mic and said, “Tell Acuña it’s mutual, I don’t like him either,” then took the 2nd pitch of the at-bat to deep left, the oppo taco as they call it in Mexico, and his first home run of the year was tagged. As he sashayed across the plate, he snapped and said, “Braves ain’t gettin’ none of this.” Snap! Speaking of which, what do you call every image of Freddie Freeman? Tooth pics. Take it, Highlights! It’s yours! Freeman sure has some teeth, right? The molar the merrier with that guy. Stop stop, he’s got fillings too! Okay, I will stop reading bad joke posters at a kiddie dentist now. So many games were postponed, but some still to go over, tooth be told. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Clayton Kershaw – 5 IP, 4 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.00. Yeah, but he threw more pitches though, so this was a better start.

Cody Bellinger – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer. So, before I was out on Cody Bellinger, I was ‘really out’ on Cody Bellinger, but before I was ‘really out on him,’ I was ‘so totally out on him,’ but before I was ‘so totally out on him,’ I did think if he figured it out, he could be solid, unlike Yelich, so I was just out on and never back in on, then out again multiple times.

Huascar Ynoa – 3 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 13.50. Ynoa, that sucked.

Ozzie Albies – 1-for-5 and his 5th homer. Let Acuña come back already so Albies can stop hitting leadoff, and I can get some RBIs with all these Albies homers.

Eric Lauer – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.48. He was a popular sleeper in fantasy leagues this year. Not by me, but by people. People I invented who don’t exist? No, real people. The narrative went “Brewers are good with pitchers, Lauer is a Brewers pitcher, ergo.” I didn’t fully buy in for draft season, but if I were afforded the opportunity to grab  him off waivers, I could see it.

Christian Yelich – 2-for-3, 4 RBIs and his 1st homer, a grand salami. Which rhymes with Yelich’s mommy. Hmm…Prolly just a coincidence. Yelich looks super cooked. This home run against the very awful Pirates aside, his Launch Angle is putrid. Maybe he comes out of it, but Yelich sat dead-red on a softball change and hit it out. Against real pitchers, he’s been hitting them hard to 2nd base.

Diego Castillo – 2-for-4 and his 1st homer.

Ryan Pressly – Said he’s feeling great. Exactly what you want to hear a day after he’s placed on the IL.

Yordan Alvarez – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 4 RBIs and his 2nd and 3rd homer, as he was activated from the Covid-IL. Don’t want to get ahead of myself with Captain Woo Cubano, but a 50-homer season is incoming.

Jose Altuve – Left yesterday’s game and might’ve tweaked his hamstring. Excuse me, with Altuve it’s a cocktail weenie string.

Luis Garcia – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 2.79. The whole rocking-the-baby-to-sleep pitching motion only works if you put up a boring line with no earned runs. Three earned and I can’t sleep in your arms.

Michael Lorenzen – 3 1/3 IP 4 ER, ERA at 4.82. How long until the Angels are like, “So, can you, like, hit?”

Max Stassi – 1-for-3 and his 2nd homer. There’s no secret police about this Stassi!

Jonathan India – David Bell said India won’t start any games before Friday. Wait until Dumb Bell hears about IL stints. Game changer!

Nick Senzel – Activated from the IL, after recovering from the stomach bug that is going around the Reds’ clubhouse. Mean’s while, Tyler Naquin hits the IL. Reds are playing musical chairs with a toilet.

Nick Lodolo – 5 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 8.00. Yolo Lodolo has become Yodefd Lodolo (You Die Every Fifth Day). Well, it could’ve been worse. He had eight Ks, and five groundouts in five innings. Only fly ball left the park though.

Tommy Pham – 3-for-4 and his 1st homer. Triumphant return for Pham! To San Diego that is, not to the Champagne Room.

Manny Machado – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer. I think I see what’s going on here. Manny is carrying the team without Tatis, so this way he can lay it at Tatis’s feet when they don’t make the playoffs.

Bryce Harper – 1-for-4 as he deals with elbow soreness. Was a bit of a non-story a few days ago when Harper threw the ball back to the infield and grabbed at his elbow. Didn’t see anyone reporting on it, but all I could think was it looked like the kind of injury that produces one of these lines, “Yeah, my elbow has been bothering me all year,” which he says in October after having a bad season.

Aaron Nola – 5 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 5.52. Honestly, in Coors, I expected worse.

Chad Kuhl – 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 0.87, but left with an injury. Not Kuhl.

Charlie Blackmon – 1-for-2, 2 runs and his 1st homer. “Feathered hair flowing, spur of the boot into the side of the horse, that’s Chazz Noir, pardner. And he doesn’t get older, he gets better.” That’s Bud Black reading a Chazz Noir romance novel about the old cowboy who rides a horse that has tennis balls on its hooves to mimic a walker.

Lou Trivino – Hit the Covid-19 IL, along with A.J. Puk, Kirby Snead, Jed Lowrie, Chad Pinder and Austin Allen. My suggestion is trade one of these guys to each AL West rival, then let them superspread in the clubhouse and then you run rampant, so to speak, through the division. Imagine this: Maddon, “Hey, A.J. Puk, glad we have you on the Angels now after your trade, you’re gonna be super valuable.” Then A.J. Puk stands super close to Ohtani and Trout, and coughs. Not really sure how long Trivino will be out or who will get the saves while he’s out. My guess is Dany Jimenez or Domingo Acevedo and neither are worthwhile.

Frankie Montas – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.63. Between Montas and Manaea, daddy’s pitching is doing fine, thanks for asking.

Shane McClanahan – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.40. Out-of-town announcers are hilarious. Yesterday, they were like, “McClanahan is going to be a star one day.” Dudes, he is a star. Right now. He’s even putting an ace-whipping on your team.

Frank Schwindel – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer. More like Schwingdel! Is that something? Something to stop? How about schomething to schtop? Still less? Okay. Schwindel homered a few days ago, and might be starting up the hot schwotato!

Patrick Wisdom – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer. Hey, not to judge, but true Wisdom would be homering every at-bat.

Dylan Bundy – 5 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 0.87. Not sure what I did in a former life to always be in on guys a year before they break out, but how do I make retribution for it? Can I give to a charity of God’s choice? Okay, so the Sawx had their B team in there yesterday, and Bundy’s become a different pitcher so far this year — or fart his year, if you’re reading fast — but it’s not all good. His 7 K/9, 0.9 BB/9 is not sustainable. Maybe he has some value, and I wouldn’t be opposed if the Streamonator likes him for a matchup — watch out if the matches up and you’re going to fart his year — but he doesn’t look like newfound awesome.

Jorge Polanco – 2-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 2nd homer. *makes siren noises* Uh-oh, here comes the JoPo.

Christian Vazquez – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer. Aw sookie! Thus begins Christian Vazquez’s one week hot streak in April. Get in while the gettin’s still worth gettin’.

Rich Hill – 4 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 7.00. There might be some truth to the rumors that Rich Hill is a vampire. He never ages, he sucks during the day, and he was beaten by Garlick.

12-team Y!: Yordan Alvarez is on waivers. I have $86 of a $100 waiver budget remaining. I know you have a value to draft him of $28, but that’s based on drafting and completing a team. Do you have any advice on a bid? I started at $36, modified it to $56, but I am willing to go $86.

My team is pretty stacked. OFs are Tildaddy, L Robert, O’Neill, Suzuki, Ozuna, Franmil and Jesus. I am trying to trade up with Suzuki and Ozuna at the moment, so consider them gone and Franmil is my drop.

Good afternoon Grey-

Two pressing issues for my teams:

1)Buy high on Heaney in a league where he is owned? Where would you rank him among Megill, Trevor Rogers, Houck, or Joe Ryan?

2)With it appearing Walsh is in a strict platoon, do your projections for him take a hit? Adolis, Grichuk, Avisail are all available if you see an upgrade there. Walsh or Austin Meadows are currently starting for me depending on matchups until Acuna returns.

Thanks as always!

JRam would be a huge upgrade over my Candelario, but Urshela and Villar are also FAs.
My SP is solid enough to do well combined with streaming (Cole, Houck, Ober, Sandoval, Urquidy, Garcia, Cortes, Montgomery).
Hendricks is literally my only closer. It was just a draft position I punted and figured I’d just play roulette and roll with whichever closers get promoted or get hot.

Hi Grey,

I still am mulling of dropping David Bednar for Kegan Thompson of Cubs. I may be dazzled by Keegan having 51 points in my yahoo league while Bednar has 21 points. I certainly don’t want to make a short decision. I was interested in your rationale for keeping Bednar and not pursuing Keegan.

A few minutes ago, I asked which pitcher to drop for Hunter Greene; and you recommended Joe Ryan.

But I just realized how useless Kelenic (bench bat) has been. So I’m now thinking I should keep the extra SP and drop Kelenic instead. Do you agree that Kelenic is easily replaceable (e.g., Nimmo and McCutcheon are on waivers) w/o fall-off from Kelenic?

In the same league I also have Winker. How is your patience with him? Arte the hits coming or is this another example of a player going to Seattle and not being able to hit? I could move Andrew Vaughan to the OF and add Choi, Lux Jesus Sanchez or Nathniel Lowe.

Carlos Correa was dropped in another 10 team H2H league and Im #1 on the waiver wire. Drop Dansby Swanson for him right? Mountcastle was also dropped in that league but I’m fairly stacked with my hitters in that league except for SS.

You know he’s going to say Betts. Why do you people ask these things?

Is it really that obvious? Betts hasn’t been healthy & is getting regular rest.

Bumping ideas against others. The fact that it’s obvious to someone makes me like the trade idea even more.

You know it’s just what he’ll say. I guess it depends on people’s outlook. It wouldn’t be terrible but he isn’t a fan of high cost pitching. It’s just easy to know, of course I read this everyday so yeah. Good luck.

Yesterday I watched a new show on the MLB network about daily baseball wagering. They had a blonde on, and her bet of the day shtick was taking the under on (5.5) strikeouts for McClanahan. I don’t do daily wagers, but ok (bad bet in the end). A good part of the hour-long program was all about betting. I think they interviewed a former player about pickleball or something though.

I had turned the MLB network on a bit earlier, and watched a group of four (non athletes?) sit around and giggle about what players were wearing to the stadium.

I can’t believe I pay for a premium cable package just to get the MLB network as part of my channel lineup, and I have to watch this garbage.

Screw them. I bought the subscription last season only to find out I couldn’t watch my team. They’re a joke.

Some things I’m eyeing today: Luzardo o5.5 Ks, Bieber u6.5 Ks, Cobb o4.5 Ks, Sandoval o4.5 Ks, Ray o7.5 Ks (kinda high)

SON has Sandoval at low 4s estimate, but I think he can push across a 5th K at some point hopefully before he combusts like Mahle the other day.

Today’s Cardinals v Marlins is a coinflip game – both are at -110… It’s Luzardo v Wainwright… gotta think the edge goes to the Marlins if Luzardo pitches like he did last week right?

yeah i wasn’t sure which way to go with Ray… I wrote off his last start cause of the conditions – they shouldn’t have been playing through that rain

SON has been doing a lot better so far than my experience with the NBA robot you guys have… perhaps the NBA robot can get that windows update/patch

I’ve been off HR props for a few days – gonna try it again sometime this weekend based off of Hittertron

interesting on Sandoval – you don’t think he can squeak by 5 Ks the way Mahle did?

Hi Grey i know how the pirates are but is Diego Castillo a trustier option over Brandon Marsh or Choi ??? I currently have Marsh & Choi but both may platoon vs lefties.

Just here to vent. Tell me my offense will come around.

Goldschmidt, Witt Jr, Reyes, Merrifield, Julio Rodriguez, Kelenic, Kirilloff have combined for 2HR and are all hitting under .200

I also have Bo Bichette, hitting .222 with an OPS of .555

I know it’s early, but no one on my team has more than 1HR.

Please tell me it’ll be ok

I have a handful of guys that are off to slow starts: Winker, Grisham, Happ, Swanson, Torres, Schoop, and Avi Garcia. Make the change for any of the following?

Espinal, Aguilar, Yuli Gurriel, Brad Miller, Jaimer Candelario, B Crawford, Duvall, Kike Hernandez, Mercado, Rosario, Yaz, Bohm, Beer…

Normal 5×5 stats. Dynasty keeper.

Also re: Harper, the one time I draft this guy, who I don’t like, he’s got a bum elbow?

The Phils know they have a DH now, right?
