Gleyber Torres was called up by the Yankees and here’s what I said this offseason, “My love for Gleyber is admittedly less coalesced into an actual thing than you’re gonna find from just about any Yankees fan.  “Ya godda be fahkin jokin wit me right here, kid.  Gleyber Torres is gonna be the greatest of all-time, son.  All.  Time.  I wanna coalesce my fist into ya fahkin head with your sissy-boy words.  Why don’t ya use a word like fuhgeddaboudit?  Before you answer, I need to go with my mom to have her mustache waxed.” That’s your run-of-the-mill Yankees fan.  See, Gleyber is already being fitted for Monument Park in Yankee Stadium before he even plays a game.” And that’s me quoting me!  In fantasy, he looks more like, Gley… *pinkie to mouth* bore!  He is a borderline top ten MLB prospect.  That’s the Gleyberline, even.  He was in Prospect Ralph’s top 100 fantasy baseball prospects.  The problem (it’s not much of a problem), he’s a hit tool guy first.  What does that mean?  He’s going to hit for average first.  That’s not a bad thing necessarily, but for fantasy when a guy is called up and he’s a 40+ steal or homer guy, they might have a bigger immediate impact, immaterial?  Immeasurable to immortality or immune–Okay, now I’m just IM’ing.  I would own him in any league, no matter how shallow.  There’s a chance you can do better in shallower leagues.  His outcome this year is anywhere from Orlando Arcia to Alex Bregman.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:

Jordan Montgomery – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.80.  In the preseason, I liked Jo-Mo (no Jo-Mo!), but, as soon as I put it together what kind of matchups he was going to have on the five-day daily, I moved off my love of him.  A 3.80 ERA seems like exactly what kind of ERA we’d see from Jo-Mo in the best case scenario.

Didi Gregorius – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .333.  Now hitting third in front of Giancarlo, and, actually, the entire team should be hitting in front of Giancarlo.  I might have to fly to New York to give Giancarlo one of my patented hot oil massages, whether he wants it or not!

Miguel Andujar – 4-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI.  Has multi-hit games in four of his last five games, raising his average from .156 to .308 in a week.  That’s not a schmotato…THIS IS A SCHMOTATO!

Marcus Stroman – 5 1/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 1.85–Wait, that’s his WHIP.  Stro-damn!

Teoscar Hernandez – 2-for-4 and his 3rd homer.  I told you to grab him in last Friday’s Buy, and went over him in the above video.  You do you, I’ll do me, and let’s hope we don’t go blind.

Junior Guerra – 5 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 0.56.  Nicest thing I can say about Guerra is he shuts out the teams he’s supposed to shut out.  I’m farting in your general direction, Tanaka.  I’d continue to look at the Stream-o-Nator for him in most mixed leagues.

Josh Hader – 2 IP, 0 ER, 3 Ks, ERA at 1.23 and his 3rd save.  With Fatt Albers coming into the game in the 7th inning, he’s not even being considered for saves, which is how it should be.  Mean’s while, I love the confidence Counsell has in Hader.  Figures a guy that held a bat like a crippled ostrich wouldn’t care what anyone else thought of him.  Unless you’re desperate for saves, I’d go ahead and lose everyone except Hader.

Caleb Smith – 6 IP, 2 ER, 2 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 5.82.  Conspiracy Theory Alert!  To reach a younger demographic that appreciates Cardi B., MLB offered money to anyone who would take on a B — Engelb Vielma, Kaleb Cowart and Caleb.  *insert meme of black guy pointing at his head*  As for Smith, he’s a high-K (yay!) and insanely high walk (no yay!) Marlins starter.  I’d leave him to NL-Only leagues.

Manuel Margot – 0-for-4 as he was activated from the DL.  Margot’s return might screw Franchy.  Pardon my Franch.

Christian Villanueva – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer.  He hit three homers in one game, which is when I started telling you to grab him, so *counting on fingers* this is the fifth time I’m telling you he should be owned.

Jake Lamb – Could travel with the club on this upcoming road trip, which means he’s close to returning.  A nearby Lamb?  Better get Isiah Kiner-Falefal for the combo platter!

Patrick Corbin – 6 IP, 2 ER, 3 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 1.89, WHIP at 0.66.  Damn, only if someone told you to draft him.  Wait a second!  I did!  Including a sleeper post.

Carlos Martinez – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 1.42.  His first start of the year, where he didn’t look good, must’ve been very traumatic for me, because I can’t stop thinking about it.  I might have PTSP.

Jack Flaherty – With Wainwright heading back to the DL with elbow inflammation, I grabbed Flaherty wherever I could.  Remember, Flaherty will get you everywhere!

Harrison Bader – 2-for-4, 1 run, hitting .300, as he’s started the last few games, due to Pham’s groin.  You’ve heard of Wally Pipp?  Well, if this is the start of Bader’s everyday job, he can thank Tommy’s pickle.  Bally Pham?  Tommy Johnson?  Okay, I’ll stop now.

Paul DeJong – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 7th homer, and, in this game Kolten Wong hit his 1st homer.  JeDong and Wong!  Which also sounds like a Japanese game show, where businessmen ring a door bell wearing no pants.

Miles Mikolas – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.46.  In the preseason, my bold prediction, which I may have said only to myself, was Mikolas would give more fantasy value than Ohtani.  Seems unlikely due to the latter’s Ks, but maybe not the blowout it appeared after the 1st two games.

Luis Castillo – 5 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 6.51.  You have five more days to Buy Low.

Manny Machado – 3-for-4 and his 7th and 8th homers, hitting .356.  He has 8 homers and 7 RBIs.  Kidding, but I’m not far off.  If you wanna see a pretty swing, check out Manny’s home run in the 1st yesterday.  He’s going to make a great six-hole hitter on the Yanks next year.

Mike Clevinger – 9 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 1.75.  In related news, Danny Salazar was given a stuffed animal at a carnival to get him to stop playing “Knock over the milk cans” when he kept losing balls with errant throws.

Jose Ramirez – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 6th and 7th homer.  Go back to check out some of the comments from the 1st week of the season about Jo-Ram.  Fun fact!  Instead of Razzball, we almost named this site, Point-and-laughball.com.

Yan Gomes – 3-for-5, 1 RBI, hitting .261.  Has a hit in his last nine games, though that’s dating back to April 8th.  May be a small schmotato.

Jeimer Candelario – 1-for-3, 2 runs, hitting .277.  Candelario sounds like a beefcake character of a Harlequin novel who comes to life when a lonely single girl makes a birthday wish over her tiramisu while on her Under the Tuscan Sun-inspired journey.

Nicholas Castellanos – 3-for-4, 1 run, 2 RBIs, hitting .309.  Diane Lane starring in Under the Tuscan Sun, Part II:  More Under, who will she choose between Candelario and Castellanos, The Greek God of Hard Contact.  “You should try my yogurt.  It’s thick.”  That’s Castellanos talking to Diane Lane, wearing nothing but a cheesecloth.

Danny Duffy – 4 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 5.26.  I told you not to draft him, and have said I don’t trust for three weeks in a row.  This is on you.

Whit Merrifield – 1-for-5 and his 3rd homer, hitting .266.  Early last week, I said Merrifield’s Buy Low window was shutting soon, and now he’s hit three homers in a week.  Yup.

Mike Moustakas – 1-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .318.  Moistasskiss!

Abraham Almonte – 1-for-3, 4 RBIs and a slam (4) and legs (1). I like my pasta, al dente, and my schmotatoes, Almonte.

Aaron Nola – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.30, WHIP at 0.93.  Nola has to be at about 5 to 1 odds to win the NL Cy Young this year, right?  If you’re thinking, “Wow, Grey, your handsome and I think about you when I’m making love to the missus, but you’re crowning Nola for a Cy Young after three weeks?”  Over-the-internet friend, this is not after three weeks.  This is Nola’s career arc over the course of three seasons.

Nick Pivetta – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 2.57 vs. Trevor Williams – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners (1 Hit), 7 Ks, ERA at 2.15.  I’m trying to remain realistic about both of these guys, and it’s working better for Williams, but Pivetta’s got me so sprung.  I watched this entire game, and Williams was being squeezed, hence the walks, and Pivetta looked dazzling, an easy #2 fantasy starter.

Garrett Richards – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 3.46.  If Richards can keep up his current pace over the course of the season, there’s no way he’s not a top 20 starter.  If he can lower his walk rate with his 12.1 K/9, he could be a top 10 starter.  But he’s thrown over 200 IP once since 2009, and his career K/9 is 7.7 in almost 700 IP.  In other words, if ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we’d all be diabetic squirrels.

Mike Trout – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer, hitting .306.  No exaggeration, Trout had two homers and a .205 average, then I blinked, and look where he is now.

Brandon Belt – 3-for-5, 2 runs and his 5th homer, and 4th homer in as many games.  Belt would be the perfect guy to tie Don Mattingly’s home runs in eight straight game streak, because Don’s ex-wife used to call him Brandon and hit him with a belt.

Evan Longoria – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer.  True Story Alert!  Someone dropped Longoria in one of my deeper leagues, and I was like, “Um, huh?  That kinda makes no sense.”  Then I looked at the team who dropped him, and they have Colin Moran as their 3rd baseman.  And that’s why I call them ‘perts and not experts.  So I put in a bid of $26 out of a possible $100, and I didn’t get him because someone bid $90.  Oh, and the person who dropped him put in a bid of $6.  Oh…*climbs to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro* …Kay.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 1.99.  There’s a Launch Angle Revolution and its flag has a hammer and sickle being held by Dwayne Murphy.  There’s also a revolution going on simultaneously with pitchers to help combat the Launch Anglers.  It’s the Rise of the K/9 Revolution led by Gerrit Cole and Garrett Richards, and could be what’s going on with Ryu.  Pitchers with a career 8 K/9, suddenly have a double digit K/9.

Walker Buehler – The Dodgers’ top pitching prospect will start today for Rich Hill.  I grabbed him in two leagues (though, in fairness, I grab everyone somewhere), but I dropped Buehler in the shallower league, because it will likely be a spot start and I didn’t need him.  Losing Buehler makes me a total Rooney.

Anthony Rendon – Hit the DL with a toe injury.  Eeny, meeny, miney, doh!

Michael Taylor – 3-for-3, 2 runs and a slam (1) and double legs (7, 8), hitting .224.  Another one of my preseason sleepers, with Taylor going H.A.M.

Blake Snell – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.54.  To avoid infiltration from the Launch Anglers, the Rise of the K/9 Revolution elicited help from Blake Snell and his 10.2 K/9, guarding the south tower.  Yes, I’m slowly morphing this from fantasy baseball to just fantasy.

C.J. Cron – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, and 3rd homer in two games this weekend.  It only took Cron about three weeks away from The Sciosciapath to realize his potential.

Daniel Robertson – 4-for-4, 1 run, hitting .318.  He’s filling in for Matt Duffy, and doesn’t have a great bat, but he has great arm strength, like a less-oiled Lincoln Hawk.

Carlos Gomez – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs, and his 3rd homer, hitting .160.  He’s going to make terrific bench depth for the Astros in August.

Adeiny Hechavarria – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .275.  The Rays have managed to put together a lineup of defensive replacements.

Yonny Chirinos – 4 2/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 2.92, but his 2nd straight less-than-ideal start.  Uh-oh, Chirinos!  In most leagues, I’d look elsewhere.

Alex Colome – 1 IP, 0 ER, and the win, ERA at 7.00.  No foolsies, life’s too short to worry about anyone else in the Rays’ bullpen.

Lucas Giolito – 2 IP, 9 ER, ERA at 9.00.  But how about that Spring Training by Giolito?!

Reynaldo Lopez – 5 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners (4 BBs), 2 Ks, ERA at 1.50.  His K/9 is 8.6; his BB/9 is 5.6.  That ridiculousness is funnier than the MTV show, Ridiculousness, that is trying to be funny.  By the by, what do kids under the age of 18 think MTV stands for?  The Challenge, The Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, Nick Cannon…Is MTV short for Moron TV?  Any hoo!  I’d use Stream-o-Nator for Lopez, but at some point the Regression Fairies are gonna sashay all over his stats.

Jeurys Familia – 2/3 IP, 2 ER, and his 1st blown save.  You mean Familia’s not going to save 155 games with a zero ERA?  C’mon, you gotta be joshing me!

James Paxton – 4 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 5.61.  This is either a great buy low, or he’s about to go on the 60-day DL.  There’s no in-between with Paxton.

Mitch Haniger – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .314.  In case the seven homers and average doesn’t tell you the whole story, Haniger is 1/6th of the way to a huge season.

Delino DeShields – 0-for-4 as he returned from the DL.  Kevin from ESPN’s Get Him In Your Lineup Department said, “I accidentally brushed my groin against Steve in Accounting, so I’m not in the office today.”

Nomar Mazara – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer, hitting .309.  For those just joining us, Mazara was another sleeper of mine.  Mezuzah!

David Dahl – 1-for-4, 1 RBI as he was recalled to replace CarGo.  Hopefully, CarGo recovers quickly, then, through a series of misunderstandings, CarGo’s placed in the Lost Ark warehouse, and never heard from again.  I grabbed Dahl in every league where I could, just in case he hits, and sticks.

Noel Cuevas – 0-for-3. The Christmas Tequila was called up by the Rockies too, but he might be out of a job when Parra returns from his suspension.  Cuevas’ minor league numbers were solid last year (15/16/.312 in Triple-A), but, apparently, there’s something wrong with him because the Rockies have never called him up and he’s 26 years old.  Oh, wait, something is wrong with the Rockies because they always choose to play journeymen vets over prospects.  “Amen to that!”  That’s Tom Murphy languishing in Triple-A.

Nolan Arenado – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 3rd homer, hitting .344.  I filed for an extension, but I think I have all my taxes done now, I’m just going to leave them for a second by this open window–NOOOOOO!!!  Torenado!!!

Yu Darvish – 4 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 6.86.  Cougs has decided our dog, Ted, needs a behavioral psychologist.  No joke; mental illness in dogs is nothing to joke about anyway.  With that said, I wonder if Yu needs one to get past his playoff yips.  His stuff does not look bad, but, man, does he stink.

Javier Baez – 2-for-6, 3 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .292.  The bright side of Joe Maddon’s maddoning lineup behavior is Baez probably feels like he has to produce every day or else.

Kris Bryant – Was hit on the head yesterday, but passed initial concussion tests.  He said, “I’ve never felt better,” then put his pants on over his head and stepped into his shirt.

David Price – 7 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 10 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.93.  If I’m being honest, he’s doing better than I expected.  Would it surprise me if he’s dealing a 4.50 ERA within three weeks and doing exactly what I expected?  No, hence the ‘what I expected.’

Sean Manaea – 9 IP, 0 ER, 0 hits, 2 BBs, 10 Ks, ERA at 1.23 and WHIP at 0.60.  No hitting the Red Sox deserves our full admiration.  *does some quick research, decides the searching is not worth it*  Whoever was the last person to no-hit the Red Sox, that person deserves our full admiration.  I couldn’t find the name.  It definitely was not Sean Manaea, even if that’s what his line says.  I know, haters gonna hate, but are you kidding with this no-hitter?  Fine, a replay overturns one play at first.  Okay, don’t agree, kinda BS — that’s not BS as Alex Colome would use the acronym either — but fine.  That called error on the outfield pop?  That’s a ridiculous error.  This is no slight on Manaea.  I gave you a Sean Manaea buy a few weeks ago because I would own him.  No hitter though?  That was a jerk-off error call, and I’m not saying that just because Semien was involved.

    From NoNoHitters.com: The Boston Red Sox, an American League charter franchise first known simply as the Americans, have been no-hit 12 times since 1901. The Yankees no-hit the Red Sox three times, and the Senators and White Sox each did it twice.

    Last time: Chris Bosio Seattle Mariners (AL) Thursday, April 22, 1993

      @VinWins: man, 1993ish was the prime of me watching Sportscenter and Baseball Tonight every day, reading the Sports Almanac religiously and playing Ken Griffey baseball for six hours at a time on the Nintendo 64…and you could have offered me $500 and I wouldn’t have remembered that Chris Bosio threw a no hitter.

      @VinWins: Thanks.

      As a fan, I found it hard to reconcile Bosio in my baseball memory with the Wilford Brimleyesque guy that kept making those painful looking trips to the Cubs mound these past few seasons. Maybe Detroit is more forgiving and the mound is downhill from the dugout there.

  5. Scott says:

    Price pitched better than his line indicated. He gave up 1 er in 7 2/3. Why did he get to face Khris Davis with 2 runners on after throwing 100 pitches is the real question. Like they didn’t have a rhp in the pen. Nothing like losing a qs in the 8th inning. Last outing they pull him after 5 innings when he was cruising after 70 pitches. Makes no sense.

    • Fungazi 2.0 says:

      @Scott: Agreed, I hate the yoyo QS that is earned and then lost. Once you have the QS you shouldn’t ever lose it IMO. The start was quality, it was the finish that wasn’t.

    • Savoy Special says:
      (link)

      @Savoy Special: I traded Corbin after his 2nd start. I gave paragraphs of rationale in comments here on why I shouldn’t trade Corbin for Aroldis and I was “convinced” to finally accept the deal.

      I’m now hoping that Corbin, who is throwing sliders more than 50% of the time has his arm fall off. This one stings…

      Also, I was offered Yu Darvish for Yasmani Grandal/Sean Manaea pre no-hitter and was told Yu side here. Like, I get buying low and selling high but there is absolutely zero chance I’m trading Manaea/Grandal for Yu Darvish now.

      I get that we like the Tim Anderson’s and the Michael Taylor’s of the world cuz their cheap assets, but while we wait for these guys to finally have that one great game after sucking and with terrible peripheral stats, assets who are trending up such as Corbin and Manaea need to be held just in case they are “for real” commodities. The Chapman’s and the Darvish’s of the world aren’t always worth the “sell high.”

      • Malicious Phenoms says:
        (link)

        @Savoy Special:

        I’d still want Darvish over your two. At the end of the season Darvish will have better numbers than your two combined. Darvish is the best of the 3 and I always want the best player in the deal.

      • b the esq. says:
        (link)

        @Savoy Special: Sucks losing the Corbin goodness at this point, but at the time, trading Corbin, a SP with obvious potential, for a top 3 closer when you were lacking in saves in a H2H league was not bad advice or even a bad decision. It’s been a month. The Yankees will be winning plenty of games and Aroldis will get his saves with excellent Ks and ratios.

        Who would you be able to get off waivers to replace Grandal at C? In a 14 teamer, Im guessing not much. I think keeping Grandal/Manaea is the right choice, but I don’t think its a zero chance, clear cut decision. While Darvish has been struggling, he is probably the best player in the deal. But swapping Manaea for Darvish may not be worth the drop at C.

        • Savoy Special says:
          (link)

          @b the esq.: yea guys, this is all clearly no exact science. In baseball, anything can happen. There is zero chance that Corbin keeps up this pace because no one can. But my god, he looks like he’s trying to win a big contract. In addifion to dropping the changeup for more sliders (his best pitch) it’s also his contract year. So maybe his arm falls off next year after he gets his money. I also traded Corbin to the 2nd place team that has Harper, Bellinger, Bryant, Cano, Cueto, Pivetta (gotta love auction drafts…). We have a looong way to go but I could have picked a closer/setup man off waivers.

          As for Grandal, the catchers on waivers are no bueno. I would essentially be streaming catchers the rest of this season and we have limited FAAB $/moves. Maybe Darvish is injured, maybe he bounces back, but I think I’ll roll the dice with the younger age-27 Manaea and a catcher who’s hitting in a prime spot on the Dodgers who will be in the race until the very end.

    • jbona3 says:
      (link)

      @Savoy Special: With Scherzer and Kershaw, I think Corbin was expendable to you, and added an ace RP. Boxberger is no sure thing to close the entire year, and your SP depth beyond your big 2 is good enough…I wouldn’t feel too bad about the deal – it probably benefited both teams, which is generally how a good trade works.

        @jbona3: agreed on this. Both teams filled needs. And agreed on Box. There’s guys like alvarado and Lyons who I can pick up just in case. Anyway, the team is more than good enough so I’ll ease up and grab a beer. Thanks for the feedback guys

          It’s only been like a week since you traded him! Even if Corbin is good all season, you needed a closer.

    Two main questions –

    2. I have one pitching spot open – who gets it? Newcomb, the Shark, Velasquez, Teheran, Jack Flaherty, Tyson Ross, Nova, Ed-Rod…?

    Great write-up.

    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

    Hey Grey,

    I know you think the wheels are gonna fall off with Johnny Cueto, but no one in my league will buy him for anything decent because they all think the same way. How many more good starts before results outweigh peripherals?

    Thanks!

    • Justin says:
      (link)

      @DeerHeadGhost:

      I see no reason why Cueto’s wheels will fall off. Obviously he won’t keep the same ERA but whats not to like? Last year looks like the outlier.

    • Slappy Jack says:
      (link)

      @DeerHeadGhost: He obviously won’t pitch this well all season but, it wouldn’t be surprising if the “wheels” never fall off completely.
      His groundballs up around career norms, swinging strikes are there, and he’s limiting hard contact.
      sierra 3.30 xFIP 3.70
      He should still deliver 8+ k/9, 2.5 bb/9 ~3.50 era ~1.20 whip
      and another 150+innings if he stays healthy and in SF/NL
      imo

    • b the esq. says:
      (link)

      @DeerHeadGhost: At this point, hold onto him and just take the stats. He won’t be this good, obviously, but its entirely possible last year was, in fact, injury related. If he gets back to what he was before last year, he is a top tier guy. Several more starts, maybe folks will come asking about him, or throw some offers out in a couple weeks.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @DeerHeadGhost: He has a 0.35 ERA with 95% men LOB and .200 BABIP… He’s about 2.50 runs above where he should be

      • Justin says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        I don’t think anyone is arguing he’s gonna be a 0.35 ERA pitcher all year and have the greatest single season pitching of anyone ever. But an ERA in the 3.00 to 3.50 range is still vurrrry good.

    Dropped Flaherty in my shallower league when he got sent down thinking Id have a shot to get him again. Nope! Kicking myself. He is going to be good.

    How hard are you going after Dahl? Gleybar is gone so I plan to put a hefty FAAB bid in for him. If he has a spot in the lineup, he’ll rake. Can’t imagine many more truly impact bats being called up this year.

    • b the esq. says:

      @Mickey Maloney: The issue is he may not have a clear spot in the lineup. They have let McMahon sit after calling him up, what’s stopping them from doing it with Dahl?

    I know it’s early in the season but are you worried in the slightest about Luis Castillo? I’ve read he’s down 2+MPH on his fastball, which kinda seems to be the norm around baseball right now, but I’m just wondering if there’s some other underlying issue, such as an injury?

    I have the opportunity to pick him up with the #1 waiver claim, as an impatient owner dropped him. Should I dropping Aaron Sanchez or Tanner Roark to grab him? Thank you!

    How much do you like Blackmon in a keeper?

    • Malicious Phenoms says:

    • b the esq. says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: 165 players are kept each year. Only Blackmon on that side would be a keeper. Its entirely possible all 3 of your guys could be keepers come next season, depending on your roster.

      Pas on that deal. If you can get another legit keeper from the other manager, then maybe, but not as is.

    Hey Grey –

    I’m in a saves + holds league. I currently have Kimbrel, Jansen, and Bradley as my RP. I have a leaguemate who is itching to get Jansen. Yesterday he offered me Miggy, Strickland, and K Herrera for Jansen. I put him on hold to sort things out. Last night he wrote and said he’s wiling to give me pretty much anything. So . . . I don’t want really want Strickland. Miggy is a definite upgrade over my CI (I have Moran in that spot now). This guy also has Dee Gordon and Jose Ramirez, also both upgrades. I’m currently in first place, competitive in most categories except SVHD and K/9. Thoughts on who I should push for? Also, does it matter that the guy proposing this trade is in third place with a pretty much unbeatable pitching staff already?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    • b the esq. says:
      (link)

      @Jeffrey Gilden: If you could get Ramirez and K. Herrera for Jensen, I would probably do that. I personally don’t want much to do with Miggy.

      How are you not competitive in SV/Holds with Kimbrel, Jansen and Bradley?

      I think Jansen will be fine as the year progresses, so I would want a lot to move him.

      • Jeffrey Gilden says:
        (link)

        @b the esq.: Thanks. I just acquired Kimbrel two days ago and Bradley just for last week so I’ve been working with Jansen and kela for most of the year – that’s why I’ve lagged a little in SVHD. Good advice. I’ll propose that.

  33. Nathan says:
    (link)

    It seems like all my high drafted pitchers are junk compared to the waiver wire guys I’ve picked up– now I have too many SP. Who should I drop or trade?

    Robbie Ray, Luis Severino, Luis Castillo, Alex Wood, Blake Snell, Vince Velasquez, Trevor Williams, Nick Pivetta.

    • b the esq. says:
      (link)

      @Nathan: I don’t think any of them are straight drops, unless you’re desperate. Plenty of goodness to try to deal. VV and Pivetta have been excellent and you could get some decent return after not investing much in them. You can’t deal Castillo now with his value at its lowest. Severino is an ace so I would keep him unless the return is amazing. Trevor Williams would be the first guy I would drop to add a bat if you have to go that route.

      • Nathan says:
        (link)

        @b the esq.: Thanks for the response. Looking to move Robbie, but right now there is no interest. I know he will turn it around, but he seems too erratic. His pitch command is all over the place and he hasn’t faced an elite team yet.

I’m thinking I don’t want to roster either Santana or Gohara when the come back and Gausman at least is uninspiring.

    Also, OBP league drop Puig, Polanco, Jose Martinez or Margot for Deshields’ return? Weak in steals and OBP.

    Thank you. I appreciate what you do and how you do it.

    Yo Grey, hope you had an awesome weekend. Per usual I drafted all my pitchers in the super late rounds in a 10-team standard 5×5 Yahoo! league. Here’s my starting staff ;

    Charlie Morton (Thank you Gray) – BTW you are a MF’n Genie
    Patrick Corbin (Thank you Gray)
    Wacha
    Alex Wood (was dropped in my league)
    Pivetta (streamboat for now)
    and Sonny Boy Gray (picked up for a potential hold)

    What are you doing with Sony at this point. He has been terrible, although the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer (FBTA) has his value ROS about the same level as Corbin my man.. Hold or drop like a 1 night stand…

  48. Milarky says:

    Which two of these guys should I sit this week? I think Wacha has to sit, but not sure on the second one given the matchups and with Weaver picking up 2 starts.

    Snell (@BAL)
    Newcomb (@CIN)
    Mikolas (@PIT)
    Weaver (NYM, @PIT)
    Wacha (NYM)

    Matt Boyd has some great minors numbers, k rate in the 9s walk rate in the 2s. Hes gone at least 6 innings in all 3 of his starts this year which seems like a rare feat in 2018. On the season he doesnt have anywhere near a 9k rate but his walks are miniscule and he did fan 6 in his last outing. Plus his home ballpark is like 940 feet to the center field wall. He gets the pirates wednesday. Owned in 7% of leagues.

    What are your thoughs on Matt Boyd?

    • cmutimmah says:
      (link)

      @Willy Mo: Boyd has always been a quad-A pitcher. Something about his K rate doesn’t translate in the MLB, which isn’t all that uncommon.

      Don’t look at field dimensions as much as park effect. Yes, Comerica has a spacious outfield in center, but it’s average elsewhere.

      Boyd is on a terrible team (I know.. I’m a Tiger fan unfortunately) and his role in fantasy today is probably a SON streamer.

      I don’t think he’s someone you need to hold onto. His upside is Doug Fister in his prime, his value today though is Doug Fister today.

      • Willy Mo says:
        (link)

        @cmutimmah: maybe, i mean he hasn’t had all that much big league experience and hes 27

      • Willy Mo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: yeah most likely. Quick note Boyd had a 2.95 era with 30 k’s in 36 innings this past september, so hes been solid for a little stretch here of like 50 innings

    Need some help trying to decide which of the following 4 starters NOT to start this week in a weekly 5×5 roto league:
    1) Chad Bettis – Apr 23 [email protected], Apr 29 [email protected]
    2) Reyaldo Lopez – Apr 27 [email protected]
    3) Robbie Ray – Apr 24 [email protected], Apr 29 [email protected]
    4) Mike Clevinger – Apr 26 [email protected]

    I initially leaning toward not starting Ray for some reason (probably scared by the start against Nationals). Stream-O-Nator seems to be really down on Bettis especially vs SD tonight I do not see why.

    Anyway, appreciate the help/advice.

    12 team, H2H league. My rotation: Darvish, Castillo, Nola, Taillon, Ryu, Junis, Pivetta, Flaherty.

    How worried should I be about Darvish and Castillo and do I need to go and get some more pitching? I’m 4/5 in ERA/WHIP in the league and thought I had a great rotation but those two have been atrocious to start the year.

    • b the esq. says:

            Thanks again Gray…and I’m an idiot. I meant to ask you who, of those SP’s you’d think has the lowest upside for 2018 to help me in deciding who to drop.

            I was leaning toward VV, but SON likes his next matchup a lot and maybe he’s turned a corner.

            ERod; same deal as VV…and has a sweet start vs KC next week.

            Lucchesi has been great, so not sure I’d want to give up on him

            Gray, I agree, has the most upside.

    Disagree with the schmotato designation on Andujar. This is a guy who’s near the top of the exit velocity leaderboard, has an elite K rate (supported by a better than league average SwStr), with 60 grade power, and in a great lineup and park.

    Ups and downs of course since he hasn’t learned to take a walk, but here’s your AL rookie of the year if Ohtani can’t make it all season.

  71. kilkennybrian says:

    What are you doing with Votto? Obviously a hold, but that team is BAD and I feel like his power may regress. Explore offers as a sell high? Maybe for Bellinger or Springer?

    • b the esq. says:
      (link)

      @kilkennybrian: Votto’s not a sell high at this point. You’d be selling at cents on the dollar. He is a slow starter. Hold, see how it goes. If he gets on a several game hot streak, maybe test the market then if you want out.

    Greetings, Grey FML!

    Fantastic recap, sir. It goes up at 3 PM here so I imagine I’m among the first Razzballers to click. And the videos are fantastic. Best videos since Nick was doing his show. Nick C-A-P-O-Z-Z-I. Shout to to him.

    So, Dahl’s up! If he sticks, I’ll have a decision to make: Peralta, E Rosario, or Dahl. This is a roto league with OPS and hits (besides R, HR, RBI, SB). Do you like Dahl any better than these OF?

    Also, do you like Dahl better than Smoak? I know it’s still early, but Smoak’s been like rubbing two sticks together and getting no spark!! Where’s the power?

    I must admit though I read your articles mostly for entertainment, I should start listening to your advice more.

    Case in point, Danny Duffy. I like the guy but he usually goes too high given his ADP. He gets injured too much, but I bought into his appatent health in spring, and he was available at pick 192 so I grabbed him. He was doing pretty well then the Royals inexplicably move him up a day to pitch on three days rest? WTF? Am I missing something? I guy who already has had one TJ surgery and another surgery this offseason with big contract and they do that with him? Unbelievable. Someone should get fired for that.

    Anyway, at least I drafter Morton the round after him…

    Top of the morning grey! Hope it was a great weekend, looking ahead to this weeks matchup in my H2h pts weekly league seeing which bat you’d recommend on adding, not targeting a particular position just overall the best option for depth/ upside. I can also play at utility as well.

    Available bats I’m targeting:

    – Christian Villanueva (3b)

    – Dahl (double D benefits with the loss of cargo)

    – Ryan flaherty (2b/3b)

    – solarte (2b/3b/SS)

    – Michael Brantley (OF)

    – Cesar Hernandez (2b)

    – CJ cron (1b) has been playing well thus far

    – justin bour (1b)

    – Mitch Moreland (he’s been playing well but in weekly leagues will it be tough to when when he’ll get playing time?)

    – victor Martinez( DH)

    – leonys Martin (OF)

    Here’s my starters

    C: willson contreras

    1b: hosmer, send him to the bench ? I have wil Myers who’s on my bench but seems like they’ve been easing him slowly since coming back from DL or leave Myers on bench & move Hanley Ramirez from DH to 1b then add Vicor Martinez to DH? Or leave Ramirez at DH & add one of the 1b I listed cron or Moreland?

    2b moncada

    3b bregman

    SS Carlos correa

    IF Brandon belt

    OF: Bryce Harper
    OF: benintendi
    OF: Gregory polanco
    OF: Dexter fowler

    Utility: Eduardo Nunez (2b/3b/OF
    Utility: Todd Frazier

    DH Hanley Ramirez

    Ideally I’d like to add two bats but if I’ll take one too that’ll be fine , not mentioning the bench

    Polanco and Ozuna both good “buy now before the price gets too high”‘s?

    Been trying my damndest to sell Lowrie solo, but no one is biting. Would a Chris Archer/Jed Lowrie package for Syndergaard be a good deal or am I giving up too much.

    Teoscar Hernandez or Conforto ROS?

    I’m still trying to get down to one bench bat. I picked up Polanco and Hanley as FA a few days into the season–now I can’t get rid of them or find them playing time. I’ve tried different 2 for 1 packages, but keep getting declined.

    1. Do you see any needs that need to be addressed? 12 team H2H. OBP and SLG. So far my SLG has been toward bottom of league, but DeJong just got hot and Rizzo had been out.

    2. Who is most droppable should it come down to dropping someone for a stream spot?

    3. I know it depends on who I’m trading to, but can you think of any enticing packages to offer?

    C – Iannetta
    1B – Rizzo
    2B – DeJong
    3B – Shaw
    SS Anderson
    OF Blackmon, Benintendi, K. Davis
    UTIL – Merrifield
    Bench: Cain, Polanco, Hanley

    SP – Syndergaard, Morton, Godley, Ryu, Castillo, Richards
    RP – Hand, Vazquez, Holland

    Thanks for the consultance and apologies for the vague post.

    Grey,

    I’ve got Story in a dynasty league, 6×6 OBP

    Thoughts on offering him for Nola? I’ve got Correa and Anderson at SS so not a huge area of need. I could use another top SP.

    My hesitancy is that I believe Story is the better long-term asset. With his 3 hit last night his AVG is up to 245 and hes contributing in all categories.

    Hey Grey,
    Still trying to upgrade 1B. Looking to package Thames with one of my RPs. Which one of these RPs do you see having the least value ROS. Devenski, Strickland, Boxberger? I heard that Melancon is getting closer to returning. Assume that they would give him the gig back to justify the money spent. At least until building him up some trade value. Box has had some hiccups lately with Bradley getting the last save opportunity and Devenski is no sure thing but has the best peripherals.

    Grey,

    I know you’ve got a ton of Castillo questions, but would you consider dropping him for any of these guys in a 10 team, 6×6 roto:

    Ryu, Mikolas, Flaherty, Mengden

    My pitching staff is currently featuring two guys I may be benching until further notice (Quintana & Castillo), which is fine, it is a long season.

    If Castillo really is headed to the DL, that makes things more complicated as I only have one DL spot that is filled by Bumgarner.

    That sweet, sweet SAGNOF nectar paying out in so many ways. Thank you for providing a platform where knowledgeable Fantasy Baseballers like OTS can yell “grab Keynan” from the mountaintops.

            @Grey: Yeah I have a feeling Puig won’t finish the season with 0 HRs… Chris Taylor, however; is testing my patience… besides that high K-rate/Low BB-rate, he’s also 0-3 stealing bases

            Would you stay patient with him as well, or cut for high upside talent like Moncada?

    Tyler O’Neill is frustrating. He gets called up to sit on the bench and pinch hit, yet somehow expected to produce. Reminds me of Ryan McMahon, who, once he got more time, started hitting…….don’t these managers care about our fantasy teams?

    Must exercise patience…….keeper league patience.

    Hey Grey –

    Hope it’s okay for me to do a follow up question of something I posted this morning. Here’s the original post:

    Hey Grey –

    I’m in a saves + holds league. I currently have Kimbrel, Jansen, and Bradley as my RP. I have a leaguemate who is itching to get Jansen. Yesterday he offered me Miggy, Strickland, and K Herrera for Jansen. I put him on hold to sort things out. Last night he wrote and said he’s wiling to give me pretty much anything. So . . . I don’t want really want Strickland. Miggy is a definite upgrade over my CI (I have Moran in that spot now). This guy also has Dee Gordon and Jose Ramirez, also both upgrades. I’m currently in first place, competitive in most categories except SVHD and K/9. Thoughts on who I should push for? Also, does it matter that the guy proposing this trade is in third place with a pretty much unbeatable pitching staff already?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    You recommended I pursue Ramirez, but my leaguemate’s only interested in parting with him for kimbrel and jansen (though he’d throw in Beltre and two relievers). Not sure I want to do something that drastic. He said he will send Miggy + any two of the following: Boxberger, Herrera, Strickland, Middleton, Kemp, Pujols, Duvall for jansen. I’m not looking to fill my roster with excess relievers. So, is a Miggy + Herrera (or Boxberger, or Middleton, etc) something I should pursue, given Miggy’s injury potential? Or should I enjoy the stats from my strong bullpen and hold tight? I’m also a little afraid of giving this guy a pretty unbeatable pitching staff, as he has Kershaw, Syndergaard, Scherzer, C Martinez, Nola, Bumgarner + relievers.

    Anyway, sorry for the long-windedness, and thanks, as always, for the great help.

    Jeff

    I picked up Buehler and dropped Senzel. Would you start at home against Miami and potentially a second start this week. I would probably see single start Wacha. Or would you drop Buehler and add Andujar even thoughI have Abreu,Sano and Shaw at my three corners and Yuli at DH. Thanks.

    Good to see you back …hope you had a good weekend.
    With Rendon now officially moved to the DL I have Moran @ 3rd but that’s been very uninspiring the past week. I need to consider a replacement from: Dietrick, Anderson, Cuthbert, Kiner-Falefa, Crawford, or Andujar . Andujar seems the obvious choice but I worry some about playing time with Gleyber now up. This a 12 team roto with weekly lineups.

    My SP with Syndergaard becomes Thor, Kluber, Wacha, Gray, Snell, Ryu, Buehler (streamer but I might hold him since he’s a hot prospect too).

    Dear Greg and Friends,

    I need saves and have to start either Norris or Holland. I thought I heard Holland getting ready for the ninth but was not needed two days ago. Then yesterday Holland pitched the 9th and Norris the 8th (non-save). Feels like they are transitioning but I have a weekly lock so it’s one or the other from here until Sunday.

    Which one should I roll out?

            His new show is called Milk Street Kitchen or something like that.

    Quite the hedge on Richards. Pick a side, any side.

    Castillo and Paxton have been frustrating to own. Wish I would’ve avoided those headaches altogether. Cueto, Godley, and Snell have been delightful to own though.

    Speaking of headaches, I’m streaming Bettis this week. Has the Padres in Coors tonight before pitching in Miami this weekend. Why am I doing this to myself?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I don’t mind Bettis in an NL-Only, but that sounds mixed, and I don’t know why you’re doing it to yourself either… I’m on a side with Richards, a side that says I’ll believe he can throw 140 IP when I see it…

      • Big Magoo

        Big Magoo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: It is mixed. Going out on a limb with Bettis. Like the matchups though. Think he has a good shot to get a least one win with 8-10 Ks. Hoping to get lucky with the ratios, but it’s probably not the wisest stream.

    Might be a better question for Ralph but I will run it by you. I got offered C Villanueva for my A. Hays in a 12 team roto with OPS added dynasty plus a slight upgrade in next years draft (basically meaningless since we keep 30 players)
    I am pretty loaded @ OF with JDM, K Davis, Rosario, Hamilton, Kepler, D Santana, W Myers, Kepler, W Calhoun, & Luis Roberts. But that being said I am not hurting @ 3B either with Arenado & Chapman.
    I could probably use SP a bit more…Newcomb, Matz, A Sanchez or Stromen might be possibilities. Hays is just 22 so 3 years younger& could be a good one while I am not sure Villanueva’s power is real or lasting.
    Any thoughts Dr Grey?? I could run it by Ralph ASAP as well.
