Is he learning the English language?  Is he drunk?  Is he trying to say ‘drawer’ while drunk?  Did he have a stroke?  Does he just not know that the person he’s thinking of is an artist and he’s calling him a drawer?  Did he just have an operation on his teeth and he’s saying jewelry?  The jewelry drawer?  Does he have marbles in his mouth?  Rocks?  Gobstoppers?  Is he doing an insensitive impersonation of a speech impediment?  No, prematurely balding man, he’s trying to say the name Drury!  As in Brandon Drawer–Excuse me, Brandon Drury.   Yes, he’s about as hot as any hitter in the league and should be owned.  In the bigger picture, he had a .331 average in 63 games in Triple-A, and is only 23 years old, so, while he hasn’t shown great power in the minors, it could still be developing.  Is Drawer top shelf?  Too Drury to say.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Curt Casali – Is he fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far better than the catcher you own?  Then run run run run run run run and get him, the Psycho Killer, Curt Casali!

C.J. Cron – He’s hitting .533 in the last week.  Okay, technically, it’s not the last week because the Angels were in an NL park and Cron wasn’t playing without a DH, but getting technical is for a manual and nerds named Manuel.  Uh-oh, I feel a rhyme coming on.  Look at all of these nerds named Manuel, I got beans from a hall named Faneuil.  After 20 years of smoking, I got no whites, wasn’t even chronic, Ben Revere rocks British Knights, cause that shizz is ironic.  I got a Cougs that gets me, and references from 1960.  She knits, listens to Herman’s Hermits, wonders why the toaster is on the fritz, prolly cause it’s a Kemnore, shizz is counterfeits!

A.J. Reed – I’m giving you a heads up now that Reed will be the lede for a Buy in the next few weeks.  Right now, he’s at 7% owned, but will be over 50% by June.  You have been forewarned on Arenthal James.

Javier Baez – Professor Maddon could play Baez every day.  The Professor could also make an MRI machine out of a coconut, but doesn’t.

Trea Turner – See what I said for Reed, but I’m not sure I’ll make Turner a lede for a Buy or just a daily roundup.  The Call-Up Hypster rises from deep in the earth, wearing nothing but a pashmina and heavy eyeliner.  It looks like a glam rocker, it knows the best place to park for free to get a cup of coffee and those tight jeans!  It’s sexy to men and women.  Oh, my God, it looked at me, I’m going to faint.

Pedro Alvarez – I like Alvarez a lot, kinda wish I owned him somewhere, but this buy is for what the Hitter-Tron is saying about this weekend.  Not what it’s saying about this weekend in regards to the orgy of appliances it’s attending.

Derek Dietrich – With the suspension of PEDee, Dietrich is ready for his closeup on the big stage, and will no longer remain silent with some over-exaggerated expressions of surprise only conveyed by title cards.

Danny Santana – Has been leading off and has 30-steal speed.  Anything Dannys Antana can’t do?!  I don’t know, get kidnapped by Jose Tabata’s wife because he’s too old?

Zack Cozart – He’s owned in 30% of ESPN leagues.  Another 30% of ESPN leagues are owned by spambots from China to exaggerate their pageviews.  Another 40% are owned by Karabell to fill up his virtual trophy case.  Another 10% are owned by this one guy in the panhandle of Florida who had some free time in March to “do some drafting.”  So, Cozart is actually owned in 160% of leagues.  That sucks!

Jonathan Villar – So many players available that are leading off for their team.  This might be the best year ever to find runs off waivers.  It’s like fantasy baseball has caught Montezuma’s revenge.

Michael Saunders – Sure, it’s a little weird that he walks around the clubhouse showers with a bucket of chicken, screaming at his genitals, “It’s Colonel Saunders to you Privates!”  But if I needed some light power/speed he’s worth a look.

Leonys Martin – I told you this morning to grab him.  What are you waiting for?  A personal invite?  They don’t make invitations anymore.  *thinking*  Or maybe no one has invited me to anything in a while.

Khris Davis – What leagues are these that a guy with 35-homer power is available?  Are they for money?  Can I join?

Joe Smith – I like to call closer Joe Smith, PochontaSAGNOF.  Maybe it’s just me.

Alex Colome – Boxberger will return soon, but he’s not a guarantee to take over the closer role.  I mean, he prolly will, but it’s not a guarantee.

Ross Ohlendorf – If you own Ohlendorf for saves, you are a closer whore.  I’m sorry, but you are.  You would get off your knee at the casket of a loved one to quickly pick up a closer.  You would.  I know, because I own Ohlendorf in three leagues.

Hector Neris – Word on the street is that the Phillies want Neris to be the closer.  That street being in South Philly, where it smells of Cheez Whiz and Stallone.

Chris Tillman – I’m kinda on the meh-train headed for Whatevs-ville with Tillman because his matchups are going to be so bleh bleh, said the Count.

Matt Wisler – I just gave you my Matthew Wisler fantasy.  Were you not entertained?!

Jesse Hahn – Mucho hype on Manaea and Berrios and Taillon and Glasnow and oppa Gangnam Style!  Hahn will be less exciting, but a whole lot safer than all of those others.

Tom Koehler – I don’t like Koehler at all.  Hey, how about that hard sell on the buy?  With that said (Grey’s turning the ship around!), the Stream-o-Nator likes his next start.

Nicholas Tropeano – Who did Nicholas Tropeano end up with again?  Rachel?  Topanga?  Pinky Tuscadero?  I forget.  Any hoo!  Stream-o-Nator likes the Trop and the Law & Order trope of folding clothes when Lennie Briscoe comes to ask about a crime.

SELL

Mark Trumbo – Noooooooo!!!  Don’t kill my Trumboner!!!  I didn’t want to do it, but our Fantasy Baseball Buy/Sell Tool told me to!  Now, it’s our turn to figure out why it’s saying to do that.  After about a month, Trumbo has 8 homers, and is good for about 30, so he’s about a third of the way to his year home run total?  Damn, basic math, you can bum a man out.  I wonder if that’s what happened to Evan Gattis when he was homeless?  2+2 equals I’m sleeping in a dumpster.  Next up, Trumbo is hitting .333.  Well, that’s only about eighty points above his career average.  That’s not much, right?  I mean, eighty is less than a hundred, right?  “It’s pretty high,” says a very smug number 79.  Shut up, number 79!  Okay, but he’s in a great park with a great lineup!  Yeah, kinda like last year when he played for the Diamondbacks and hit .235.  I’m not saying sell Trumbo for a chance encounter with Bud Bundy, but I’d explore options.

    Follow up from my earlier question. I lost Richards in my 18-team 5×5 league. Would you trade Piscotty for Porcello or get Rea off the waiver wire? My other pitchers are Salazar, Quintana, Rodon, and Roark. Thanks,

    This is the current squad I’m working with:

    C – Castillo
    1B – Rizzo
    2B – Odor
    3B – Frazier
    SS – Bogaerts
    MI – Schoop
    CI – Franco
    OF – JD Martinez, JUpton, Cain, Polanco, Grichuk
    BE – Delino, Mazara, KDavis

    Managed to trade for Frazier and LoCain this past week, which I think will help, but ready to cut bait on Schoop, Delino and possibly one of the other bench bats.

    Drop Schoop for Danny Santana or Owings?
    Drop Delino for Leonys, Joc, or Alvarez?
    Drop Mazara or Grichuk to stash Reed or Turner?

    Not Trumbo! He’s my prized fa pickup!

    Are we dropping Deshields because we’re sure he won’t be starting any longer? I guess I’ll drop him today and monitor but still holding out hope that Desmond gets into his normal 2-50 June mode and he Delino gets another shot

    Did you listen to the new Aesop Rock?

    Thanks as always Grey!

        Love it. IMO it’s his best since Labor Days. His production has improved dramatically.

            @Grey:

            I was relived that he didn’t roll it out as a Tidal exclusive

            Did you drop Deshields in all of your leagues? I’m having a hard time letting go. This is the hardest it’s been for me to part with some thing inconsequential since selling my California Raisin figurines at my parents yard sale in ’88

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              I haven’t dropped DeShields anywhere

  13. Brett says:

    in late March I realized that on a lot of my teams I needed power & could take a hit in average. I had several options to choose from but I picked up Chris Carter on 75% of my teams in part because you pushed him so hard. I just wanted to say thanks. its been a good year so far.

    How much of a schmohawk will Tulo continue to be? Getting tired of his act with the quickness.

    9 team 5×5 Standard AL-Only

    Give:
    Tulo
    Aaron Sanchez

    Get:
    Ketel
    Kluber

    Rest of lineup:
    C – None at the moment
    1B – Miggy
    2B – Forsythe
    SS – Tulo
    3B – Sano
    IF – Abreu

    OF – C. Gomez
    OF – Keirmaier
    Util – Park
    Bn – Dannys Antana

    Too much? Can I part with the power numbers (supposedly) that I lose giving Tulo?

      Hahn

      • Hugman says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I read an article about Wainwright that said neither his velocity nor movement have diminished. His issue has been control and keeping the ball down. Sounds like a good buy low candidate to me. Although I still wouldn’t do it, personally, as my pitching is pretty solid.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Interesting

          • Hugman says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Off to a bad start today. Did escape bases loaded with nobody out only giving up one run (and one before they loaded the bases).
            More like a pickup and see if he turns it around if he gets dropped.

    Do you like trading Belt for Bumgarner or Cueto or trading Myers for Shields or Pomeranz?

    (I play in an NL only league where you have to have a player from each team, which is why I’m looking at dealing Giants for Giants and Padres for Padres. Weird, I know.)

    Hey Grey, keeper league.

    Jung Ho Kang, Rendon, Lawrie. I have to trade one or two to make some room for pitching. Does Rendon come back to 2014 form, or are Lawrie or Kang good enough to slot in ROS – beyond.

      Ozuna

  80. 1. Holy cripes, did you see the Pirates lineup for today?!? Polanco is batting 3rd. It’s almost like someone at the Pirates reads the comments and grew tired of our mocking them for batting Polanco 6-8.

    2. Would you pick up My Favorite Martin over Ozuna (who you just told me to pick up)?

    3. There is no 3.

    4. I have a good joke for you. It’s a “dad joke” but it’s a good dad joke:
    A Mexican magician is at a children’s birthday party. He says, “For my next trick, I will make myself disappear on the count of 3!”
    He counts off slowly, “Uno!” (a hushed silence goes over the crowd), “Dos!”
    *poof!* – he was gone!
    Disappeared without a tres.

      Don’t want to kick a gift horse in the mouth, but Polanco in the three hole means Hurdle benched Freese, his previous three hole hitter… His previous three hole hitter was benched! 2. Nah 4. Ha!

    (link)

    So glad that Neris could finally be getting his chance to close. I love his splitty, but it does worry me with his potential to walk batters if/when they become more patient with him. He’s getting a ton of swing-and-misses.

    A) Thoughts on Brett Wallace in NL-Only? Is he still meh even though he’s getting PT and batting 4th/5th for the Quad A Padres? I currently have Fatty Matty Adams.

    B) Another owner in my league has deGrom, Liriano, and Chen. Last year, I’m sure he’d feel confident rolling with only these three and streaming.
    What offers could I give from the following?
    One of my SPs: Eickhoff, Nicasio, Pomz, Finny for one of Lamb, Drury, or Dietrich

    C) Same owner as B. Is it too unreasonable to offer him Hendricks for Polanco? I myself would immediately reject because I almost always take a good hitter over a good SP unless I really needed the arm.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      A) Hold B) Nicasio for Drury, Lamb, Dietrich, that order C) Kinda ridiculous

    1. 16 teamer with OPS, only 4 moves per week so at bats is actually important: wolters (but he hasn’t done anything, isn’t at home till monday, could of course grab him for tuesday-sunday), castro, navarro (seems to have safest at bats for now)

    2. 20 teamer with OPS, SLugging, BB’s, total bases and hits (65 moves left on year): wolters, navarro, barnhart (might have safest at bats, but no upside, and awful counting stats on CIN).

    So I quit smoking cigs 3 weeks ago and I was given a Vuse ecig. I like it, but the cartridges are expensive and it’s not the “juice” stuff. Do you have any recommendations for a reasonably priced Vape pen that uses liquid? There’s just so much out there, it’s overwhelming. I don’t like those pocket hookahs or water bottle sized things. I’d prefer something that looks and feels like a cigarette in your hand. Thanks breh.

    • Dr. Kenneth Noisewater says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: Cram, congrats man! I quit a little over 11 months ago after 14 years. I vaped for only a month or two to help quit. It’s not cigarette sized, but check out eLeaf iStick. They aren’t massive or anything, but so so much better than a starter pen that uses liquid like an iClear. I’m no vape expert…but did quit with its help.

        • Dr. Kenneth Noisewater says:
          (link)

          @muskysmell: Vape instead of smoke, then you can gradually decrease the amount of nicotine that you’re using until you hit 0mg. Once the oral fixation is gone (hehe), stop it altogether.

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @Dr. Kenneth Noisewater: Thanks man. I’ve quit before. Smoked cigars instead for a few years. But man, when I drink, puffing goes hand in hand and it’d be nice to use something less detrimental to my health and my wallet.

        • Dr. Kenneth Noisewater says:
          (link)

          @Cram It: I liked that iStick, stupid easy. Drinking is tough for me still, especially drinking outdoors on a nice day. Good god, I want to smoke all of the cigarettes.

          Also, holy shit did I gain weight. I thought that was a myth. I’m still working on losing all that again.

          • Cram It says:

            @Dr. Kenneth Noisewater: Haha. I love smoking. I don’t understand why they can’t make a cigarette that has tobacco flavored stuff in it without all of the death ingredients.

            • Dr. Kenneth Noisewater says:
              (link)

              @Cram It: Agreed! That just blew my mind.

              After I quit, the cigarettes I smoked got pulled from the shelf because of higher levels of harmful ingredients. WTF?!? They using rat dicks and anthrax?

    2B lawrie
    SS iglesias

    util castellanos
    BN pedro
    NA moncada (3 keepers and we keep them at ADP of previous season value, so next year last rounder keeper)
    drop delino for any of: naquin, chisenhall, gose (-1 net steals on year), marwin (doing best of these guys, no everyday job, but neither does delino, and it might get worse later), tucker, hicks (could be starting all the time soon), pearce, guyer. this one might be the only “hold delino” we’ll have seen in 3 days
    2. same league, keep pedro over pearce?

    3. 20 teamer with OPS
    C wolters
    1B ortiz
    2B schoop
    SS segura
    3B bryant
    OF (3) hanram, marte, delino
    util castellanos

    options to replace delino:
    A. clearly i dump delino for cargo 2 (HOU) if my 7th waiver cuts it, but assuming it doesn’t
    B. which of: aoki, ortega, duvall, pearce,

    Should I even be considering this? (15 team mixed-league, (5 keepers/year, no contracts) standard 5×5, saves at an extreme premium) a guy is offering in return for Manny Machado, Rubby de la Rosa and some bullpen saves speculation guys the following package : Rougned Odor, Kyle Seager, Wade Davis, Luke Gregerson (and Ken Giles) and Marcus Stroman. (I only have David Robertson at CL and three closers have been necessary in the past to finish in the top third in Saves (also one guy in the league usually beats everyone else to saves on the wire). In addition to Machado currently have Starlin Castro, Chris Owings, Marcus Semien and Maikel Franco across 2b, ss, and mi. I would normally not even consider this especially with upcoming ss availability, but the return is pretty overwhelming. Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      It’s fair if you need a bunch of guys, you’re obviously giving up the best guy

      • da-gezi says:

        Could definitely use the closers and I’m a little short in the rotation until Carrasco gets off the DL. Just worried about the offensive hit. But Castro, Machado, Semien, Franco (2b, 3b, ss, mi) is *roughly* comparable to Odor, Seager, Castro, Franco except for BA, no?

    10 team 7×6 (Hits + OPS + QS) weekly h2h deep pitching.

    I’m last in Ws, QS. Staff is Max, Thor, Carrasco (DL), Matz, Maeda, Steven Wright, Eickhoff, Corbin, Colon, Rondon, Colombe, Chapman, Snell (NA), ERod (DL), Boxberger (DL).

    I’m left with no other choice then deal my closers for starters.

    Is Rondon for Shark fair?

    Chapman for Liriano? Chapman for Salazar? Rondon for Liriano?

    It is my sincerest hope that you just play coy with and for a fantasy baseball paycheck. Because you are deserving of so much more – and hopefully are realizing such deserving. Why do I say this? Because this and so much regularly more from you is informed, subtle, witty and comedic genius that uses fantasy sports as a FOIL for an apparent and greater comedic sensibility. Your open – your throw-away shit – it’s pefect!:

    Curt Casali – Is he fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far better than the catcher you own? Then run run run run run run run and get him, the Psycho Killer, Curt Casali!

    drop pedro for d.valencia, i’d have hanram as backup 1B if/when ortiz is out. valencia (so far) is better in every hitting category and didn’t platoon when healthy, but i suppose projects at less homers and slugging.

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: uggg, i remember a bunch of people being really high on the orange man here, but went and checked what the machines think (ROS OPS, preseason OPS, “other hit” etc) all have pedro a lot higher. only things that are easily better on orangey is OF eligible, bats in good part of order and doesn’t get off against all lefties (in fact player page has him to be much better against lefties than righties), appears to be carpenter without homers OR doubles.

    man RP are some fickle as F mistresses. after multiple years of being shit (rodney) and one (cishek) those 2 are now have to be solidly in the top 10 for closers (i mean ratios/K’s, saves aren’t their fault, that’s a team thing, and luck), and were VERY cheap on draft day.

    good god, no wonder delino has appeared awful, his BABIP is .212! K rate isn’t good at 29% (about 6.5% higher than last year, but we’re talking about less than a month of stats here due to benching days), BB rate is down about 3%, but again, small sample and knowing he’s in danger of losing his job might cause a few extra BB to turn into K’s. the last year rutledge was starting before he got weiss’d he had the worst BABIP in all of MLB.

    Odor with a leadoff homer off Pelfry and his second straight game with a homer. He has rapidly turned around a slow start. He was batting .205 on April 15, now up to .293. After last night, he was up to #8 overall for the season in 5×5 scoring.

    16 team dynasty with QS over wins, K/BB added. missed out on hill after i had him during his shitty starts, and then held buchholz too long, readded buchholz when he had the good recent outing.
    1500 max innings so i can bench some of these from time to time. last year this was a pretty good staff.
    SP cole/liriano/pineda/buchholz, tillman/porcello/colon (streamer), these last 3 added this year
    RP britton/giles/j.peralta/hudson/lowe/watson
    DL heaney/ryu/wheeler/romo/kela

      • Mordacious Levator says:

        @Grey: farthest my guess would’ve been off. i would’ve guess like 20 or something. richards is good when healthy, albeit it’ll be probably august 2017 till next time we see that. don’t have much close examples of injury this long and how much FAAB it took, but
        -mccullers dropped in preseason (day he got announced hurt) and somebody hit him for $53 (his injury not nearly as bad), my $21 was 2nd.

        worst part is last year i trade nola for j.ross + heaney (thought this was an easy one). this year i traded j.ross for delino preseason (thought i had enough pitching). now he’s the 22nd BEST SP! my guy gets benched due to BABIP! at least if he completely gets screwed over next year i’ll have more room for dahl/benintendi.

    Hey Grey I posted in the forums and not sure if you saw but I still wanted your opinion on a couple trade ideas I’m working with…

    10 team (3 keeper) ESPN H2H Points (weekly 12 start pitcher limit)

    Hitter Scoring: HIT (+1), RUN (+1), RBI (+1), 2B (+1), 3B (+2), HR (+3), BB (+1) SB (+1)
    Pitcher Scoring: WIN (+3), LOSS (-3), IP (+3), K (+1), BB (-1), SAVE (+3), HOLD (+1), ER (-2), HIT (-1), NH (+10) PF (+15)

    (1) C: Posey
    (1) 1B: Abreu
    (1) 2B: Odor
    (1) SS: Correa
    (1) 3B: Seager
    (3) OF: Trout, J.D. Martinez, J. Upton
    (1) UT: Piscotty
    Bench: (n/a)

    (1) DL: Carrasco

    (4) SP: Scherzer, Salazar, Matz, Walker
    (3) RP: K. Jansen, Gregerson, Jeffress
    Bench: (Rodon, Odorizzi, Hill, Gausman, Corbin [streaming])

    1) Would you deal Gregerson and Piscotty for Polanco?
    2) Jansen and Piscotty for Polanco?
    3) Also since this is a keeper league (we keep 3 player at the end of the year that consume the 1st 3 picks of next year’s draft) should I try offering maybe Scherzer and Abreu for JoFer and either Miggy/Pujols?
    4) Scherzer for Miggy?

    @Grey: Someone in my league dropped addison russell – is he better than any of my current 2B? Lawrie, Kipnis?

    Hector Santiago has also been dropped as I am writing this. I think Kipnis is the drop here unless Santiago is hiding an injury as he has not been sharp the last 2 times out.

    wow, i could’ve won K’s (likely) AND not lost ERA by streaming koehler, damn, but i wonder how many times that can be said late in a week this year by the end of it. i got the under on 30% of the time. that’s more K’s than i’ve seen him have, and only 1 ER is pretty rare for him too.

    AL only, holland or weaver, weaver looking quite good today. both have negative SON ratings coming up, but of course holland just got completely destroyed. QS over wins

    holland vs WSOX -6.9
    @ OAK -8.2
    weaver vs TB -2.1 (today)
    vs STL -7.5

      @Beware the Shit Rope: could also maybe stream these 2, along with not much else out there at all (duffey even added by somebody today).
      other available:
      m.gonzalez (worse SON numbers), cody anderson (nearly the same SON numbers and has been awful pretty much all the time), medlen (awful), shoemaker (better SON than most numbers, but had been awful), nova (two -7.7 starts in a row coming up, and pretty bad as RP)

    RP madson/kenley/colome/siegrist/osuna/rondon/kenley

    NA snell

    another owner has wacha/sale/kluber/degrom/matz/tanaka
    NA reyes/berrios
    DL wheeler/heaney
    he’s trying to move at least one of berrios/reyes (seemingly both at same time), he can’t legally call up berrios and thus can’t make any moves at all.
    clearly i can drop chen and the stream spot (but we have infinite innings, roto) am i just better off holding the guys i have or move ceager here. i’ll need room for snell and iglesias later anyway.

    • Beware the Shit Rope says:

      @Beware the Shit Rope: just realizing i could probably drop hill later too if i had reyes and berrios. what about ceager for berrios + reyes? once reyes is off suspension he could be NA’d.

    Hey Grey,
    I own Andrew Miller. With Chapman due back tomorrow, should I see what I can get for him by trying to flip him to the Chapman owner? (Our roto league doesn’t count Holds.) Or might something happen with Chapman by the trade deadline to make Miller the closer again?
    Thanks!

    NL Only league 4×4 roto keeper..my team is really struggling on Offense and Pitching
    do I pick up Alex Presley (short term gain) or Barraclough (long term investment)??

    Struggling with HR’s, Wins, ERA, and WHIP..

    And is Foltz worth placing a bid on? I’d have to keep him rostered as long as he’s active.. (can’t cut him) I assume he’d keep hurting my WHIP.

    In my 7×7 league that I have been playing in for 6 years, I pulled off my first ever 14-0 sweep this week. Also won 10-0 in one of my yahoo pro 5×5 leagues. Sadly my 3rd team lost 3-7, but I guess it is hard to complain too much about one team laying an egg when the other two sweep every cat.
