Greetings! Surprise, tis not Grey the Elder God, nor Dan Pants, but I, Tehol Beddict, wordsmith and fantasy baseball extraordinaire. Some of you may have been wondering where my Game of Thrones post was this week (okay, maybe, like, two of you), but truth be told, I was in the type of NyQuil induced coma that would make Anna Nicole Smith (RIP Bae) jealous. (And if you’d like to hear me in my NyQuil induced coma while talking about Game of Thrones, be sure to check out the newest Fantasy Football podcast.) Say one thing for Tehol Beddict, he loves NyQuil. You see, when I’m sick, I despise doing anything, so I just skip the DayQuil and just stay home and take the night-time stuff, dozing off every few hours, awaiting the end of the torture that is the common cold. During these moments of sedation, I’ve realized some interesting side effects from NyQuil that I believe could change an entire industry. And what industry is that you ask? The porn industry of course! That tasty green liquid makes it extremely difficult to orgasm and also thickens the Au jus, making for the ultimate money shot! The only problem I foresee with introducing this into the adult entertainment world is that, being that it makes one so tired, how can one bring the energy forth to really slam it home? An IV with sugar free Red Bull perhaps? Either way, I think I’ve found something… Wait, am I supposed to be writing about baseball? [Jay’s Note: One can only hope…] Ahhh, yes.

Speaking of drugs, Josh Hamilton is BACK! Back with the team with which he rose to fame. Back to dropping double-dongage on the opposition as if they were Paula Abdul on a Tuesday night in autumn (do-do ya love me!?). I was high on Hamilton (no pun intended, MAYBE) before the season began, but now that he’s back in Texas, where he’s comfortable, I couldn’t be higher… unless I took a double dose of NyQuil. NEVER DO THAT!  I’m sure Hambone was immediately swooped in leagues he wasn’t previously owned after yesterday’s two-bomb performance, but needless to say, if he’s there, go head and make that happen friends.

Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball, TAKE HEED!

 

Stephen Strasburg – Well spank my ass and call me Susan! Strasburg is FINALLY admitting to some form of injury. The man I selected to win the NL Cy Young two years running, has looked “off” all season long and it’s of great wonder they didn’t put him on the DL sooner. I’ve heard mention of him attempting to play through it, but I’m sure his owners would greatly appreciate him taking that a** to the DL so they can add another player. Please and thank you.

P.S. Grey badly wanted to trade me for Stras in our Razzball experts league RCL. So bad, he even sent me personal emails about it as I wasn’t responding to the trade on the site. Unfortunately, I never quite got around to clicking that accept button… FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU*K MY LIIIIIIIIIFE! My life’s dream is to one day challenge Grey on the field of fantasy baseball, but it seems not to be. Grey, send the trade again, big dog. He’s gonna turn it around. I can feel it deep within my loins.

Say one thing for Stephen Strasburg, he’s a bum.

Jimmy Paredes – 1-for-his-last-12. I’d like to think this is just a minor blip on the “Paredes is a legend radar”, but I can’t help but think he’s going to come crashing down like Amelia Earhart. Hopefully, you did the smart thing and traded him at peak value. Unfortunately, I did no such thing.

Trevor Bauer – 7 innings, 2 earned, and 10 ks? Ahhhkaaaay, I’ll take that every time! It saddens me to no end that the Mariners passed over Bauer in the draft for Danny Hultzen. I didn’t understand it then, and I certainly don’t understand it now. I suppose I should look at it like I’m smarter than the Mariners general manager. I’m sure none of you would argue that… let’s move on.

J.J. Hardy – Hit a walk off single… kind of like the herp; almost forgot it existed, but will pop back up from time to time.

Anthony Rendon – Played 7 innings in minor league rehab start, going 1-4 with 3 Ks. More importantly, he managed to make it through unscathed! Glory be to the Elder Gods.

Brad Ziegler – My boy Ziegs is looking a tad shaky on the mound as of late, but you know what? He got the job done last night in getting the save, and he’s BY FAR the most reliable reliever the D-Backs have on the roster. Have faith, for the Ziegs will provide.

Brett Cecil – WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE FOR CECIL TO GET A SAVE OPP? With just two saves on the season, I’d say Ray Romano has a better chance of winning an Oscar next year than Cecil does of finishing with 20-plus saves.

Fernando Rodney Rodney’s been a real spark plug for the Mariners this season… Oh, I’m sorry, I meant butt plug (more on those later). Someone needs to bungie cord Rod-dog’s wrists to his ankles and unleash a flaming and preferably razor blade-spiked arrow up his red eye, for this form of peasantry can no longer be tolerated in Seattle. Rodney did his usual last night, came in with a two-run lead, gave up one, and put the tying run on 3rd before closing it out. There’s a thin line between love and hate, and I despise Fernando Rodney.

Chad Bettis – 8 innings, 2 hits, 7 Ks? Whoa there, hoss! Poppa Beddict likes what he’s witnessing out of this 26-year-old stallion, and with only giving up two runs in his last 16.1 innings pitched, what’s not to like? Other than he pitches for the Rockies and there’s almost a zero percent chance this continues…

50 Shades of Grey – “What are, butt plugs?” Hands down the best line of the film and the only thing I recall from this horrendous piece of gutter trash. One would thing that legit actors would be sought to play the lead characters for the story that got both high school chicks and horny grandmothers wetter than Niagara falls after a two-week rain storm. Some of the worst acting I’ve seen in a big budget film in quite some time. I would literally kill to see Nicolas Cage as Christian Grey in some sort of spoof. Better yet, just replace the dude (I’m not even going to look up his name) with Cage right now and get the sequel poppin.

Troy Tulowitzki – In my many years of life, I’ve learned three things; 1) Razzball is everything, 2) NyQuil creates thicker Au jus. And 3) When healthy, Tulo harnesses the combined fury of the hammer of Thor and the trident of Poseidon, and unleashes that power on the weakly mortals who dare throw him something to lay wood to. Tulo woke from his Kodiak bear-esque slumber, going 4/4 with two woolly mammoth dongs. Yeah, I’m thinkin he’s back.

back

Chase Utley – Yes, tis true, Father Time cannot be defeated, and Utley’s been chocking on Rhino “D” in his age 36 season. After yet another 0-for-4 outing, this former hog is batting a peonic-like .183… yet he’s there… in the 3-hole… every day. It’s always sh*tty in Philadelphia.

Domonic Brown – The man formerly known as “Prince Domonic” is stroking at Triple-A right now and has stolen nine bags to boot… though he remains homer-less. It seems the Phillies are done with who is the most intriguing player in their entire organization, and would rather develop replacement level talent in Cody Asche to play the outfield instead of this young stallion. The young stallion who carried this organization two seasons ago. I for one, am appalled. I’ve had to invest in multiple pairs of knee pads, for every evening, and at the stroke of midnight, I get on my knees and beg the Elder Gods to influence a trade. HOW ARE TEAMS NOT LINING UP FOR THIS ALTERED BEAST IN WAITING? MAKE ME UNDERSTAND! FU*K! WHY? WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?

John Lackey –  Is Lackey the biggest bargain in baseball? In blanking the Dodgers for 7 innings with 9 Ks, Lackey has firmly bought into “The Cardinal Way.” Hey, maybe the Red Sox could use a starting pitcher… Oh, that’s right, they traded Lackey for bum ass Allen Craig, and the 6.24 ERA Joe Kelly. Kudos on the trade, Cherington. At least they got Lackey’s contract off the books… Oh wait… he’s playing for a million bucks. Can you feel that buddy? That’s the aforementioned butt plug. It huuuuuuurts.

Shawn Tolleson – Threw his 3rd perfect inning in a row, notching his 6th save since taking over as the Rangers closer. Free edibles to whoever can explain why I insisted on holding onto Cecil instead of grabbing this savant. Double kudos for Shawnee. Good form.

Lucas Duda  Went 1-for-4 with his 6th dong in 7 games. Of course, four of those dongs came in two games, which we refer to as double dongs. Add those two games up and you get a quad dong. What’s the moral of this story? Duda is providing the kind of dongage I haven’t witnessed since I walked in on Miley Cyrus getting Eiffel towered by Justin Bieber and Dennis Rodman.

Xander Bogaerts – After getting drilled in the wrist Thursday, Bogaerts was right back in the Red Sox lineup, doing what he does best… NOTHING. I suuuuuuuppose Bogs wasn’t entirely worthless, he did have a sac-fly and frankly, I’m shocked he was able to hit the ball a far enough distance for that to occur. The man has NO power and NO speed, so I’m failing to realize why I’ve reached on Bogaerts in each of the last two seasons. It’s time to let go, ya’ll. You’ve got to be realistic about these things.

Brandon Crawford – Another 2/4 day has Craw-daddy’s average over the .300 mark and the homers are comin, or my name isn’t Tehol Beddict, child of the Elder Gods. I’ve been recommending Crawford for a while now, and it delights me like I was Rosie O’Donnell and I just walked into a strip club and found it also contained an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Addison Russell 2-for-4 with 2 runs scored and a bomb? Shiiiiiiiiiizzz, shorty has some pop! If only we could get this young hog out of the 9-hole, then we’d really be onto something. If Bogaerts was half the man Russell is…. well, he’d be better than he is now.

Wade Davis – Remember when bruh was more of a let down than Jonathan Rhys Meyers career post The Tudors? Oh, I’m sorry, you thought Dracula was hella dope? My badksi. Now, Davis is vying for the title of baddest 8th inning dude on the planet with Betances. Another perfect inning with 3 Ks puts Davis a notch above Betances for now. Holds are cool.

Taijuan Walker – HE HAS RISEN!!!!! Sky Walker returns to us when we needed him most. 8 innings of TWO hit ball with EIGHT Ks AND ZERO walks is enough to make me DO THIS. Is this the turnaround we’ve been waiting for or will Walker tease us like Mickey Rourke did with The Wrestler, only to fade back into obscurity? Only the Elder Gods know.

    Looks like you had a late night out on the town. Who is Scott Tolleson? Shawn’s minor league twin? And teams should be lining up for Dom Brown?? You’re not from Philly are you? Fans would buy a condo in the city of his choice to ship him out. He’s had 2 nothing seasons since his fluky year.

    Good read, Im getting myself some nyquil! Would you rather have Lackey or the new guy in Beantown Rodriguez for next week in a H2H points league, is Rodriguez staying? Of these 2nd baseman whos better ROS Harrison, Paredes or Forsythe? And last but not least at my utility spot Hamilton or Duda? Thanks Tehol!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Nuclear Molars: thank you, my goodman. Probably have more faith in Lackey as we know he’s in rotations but rookie more intriguing. I like Harrison a lot so I’m going there. Utility got to be Duda but monitor closely. HAMBONE is know to erupt like mount st. Helens

  15. Allan says:
    (link)

    Tehol is it time to cut ties with Melky Cabrera? I own him in 2 leagues thinking he’s going to rack up counting stats batting second in that lineup. No such luck. In one league I could move Zobrist to OF and drop Melky for Kang. In the other league I can drop Melky for Pederson, Fowler, Hunter, Tomas, Aoki, Inciarte, Calhoun, or Polanco.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Allan: ummmmmmm yeeaaaaa, we need to drop him for Pederson, Tomas, or Calhoun, like now. I’m fine with ur other move as well but I’d probably hold there.

    Tehol!!!!!

    Fantastic information, man! Look forward to your words every week.

    a. Dropped Hendricks to pick up Duda to handcuff Abreu. Hopefully Abreu will not be out too long.

    b. In a super shallow H2H points league, would you drop Forsythe to pick up Travis? Still waiting for Rendon’s imminent arrival and also for what to do when he gets back. I’ll prolly keep him on the bench until a hot pitcher arrives.

    c. In two other leagues, I added Kipnis and Wong as an injury replacement for Rendon. Both were on waivers at the time but none of them are waiver-wire fodder now, some 6-7 weeks later. Which pitchers would you realistically target in a H2H points league which favors pitching a little more (7 pts for every W, 3 pts for every QS, 3 pts for every INN pitched, 0.5 pt for every K, -1 pt for every BB, -1 pt for every ER, H, HBP)

    Cheers,
    Ante

      @Ante GALIC: Ante, my goodman!!! Always a pleasure to hear from you.

      Nice move on Duda. He’s a must own. Rendon should be back shortly so I’d probably just go with him as soon as he’s back.

      Probably have to be some mid level pitchers for guys u mentioned. Anyone in mind? Let’s keep this chat going

    Fun read man, Lonely Island had me crackin up. Would like to hear your opinion on these handful of players. Dynasty League.

    I own Rizzo and Hosmer. People are hounding me about both, though I would only consider giving up Hosmer. Seems to me like it would be the wrong time to part with either. Should I consider a trade for Will Myers? Try and get both him and Dom Brown in a package? Hurting a little in the OF, but I have Puig and Arcia on the return. and if not Myers is there a player of another caliber I should target? Thanks

    • WalleyWorld says:
      (link)

      @WalleyWorld: update: same league, just flipped trevor may for brown. how is he not playing over frechy? i sure could use him in RF. this is the same guy who wants Hosmer. still consider hosmer for myers?

        @WalleyWorld: o k k k, now we’re talking. May is a nobody to me so I’m good with that. refer to my last answer about Myers deal. thanks for reading, Wallace. let me know if you have any other ideas

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @WalleyWorld: that Lonely Island video slays me every single time. haha.
      Yea, I would definitely not trade Rizzo as he’s truly Elder God Blessed. Hosmer is finally putting it together but if you can get something worthwhile in return I’d bang it out. I love Dom Brown but you cant trade Hosmer for him and Myers right now. but you’re on the right track. someone similar. Maybe let it play out a bit since you have the big dogs coming back but someone like a Myers would work, but I need to see him turn it around first. Maybe like an Ozuna or Yelich?

      • WalleyWorld says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: That’s funny you mention yelich. He is my LF. And finally starting to hit, thank goodness. so that leaves me with yelich, puig, Arica, maybin, Martin, and brown to handle the OF. My only other weakness, besides catcher, is at SS. I have starlin Castro, but he’s been frustrating as hell. I also have Addison Russell playing 2B. My 3B slot I rotate Alvarez, lawrie, and middlebrooks. Only other idea I have would be to try and acquire Anthony rendon. There is a chance his owner is ready to cut bait, though he is nearing a return. So I could try a hosmer for rendon trade. And the other owner wants to do a hosmer for Myers trade straight up. Let me know what you think about rendon. And man, i do like Myers. Just don’t know who the better long term option would be.

    Hi “not Grey” … you are both wordsmiths, and both clever, but he is more of the Family Guy variety while you are slightly more highbrow, or do a good job faking it. ;)

    I picked up Colabello and dropped Hamilton (blame Grey), and that’s life. I’m happy with my lineup, but my 14 team h2h 5×5 league has a major flaw…..innings minimum but no innings limit. So some teams stack pitchers and win on volume with k’s and wins, and though taking a risk in ERA and WHIP, they can often sweep. So I am going to drop a position player for a pitcher. My bubble guys are:
    Paredes, Colabello, Alex Guerrero.

    Pitchers I am wanting: Rodriguez (Boston), Bucholz, Rodon, jGarcia, Karns.

    Since I owned Karns before, I’m leaning there.

    Who to drop and who to pick up, keeping my staff doing well? Doing awesome in Ks, ERA, and WHIP, but wins are hard to find for some reason. I have Kluber, DeGrom, Archer, CMart, JChavez, and Roark. With JoeFer on the DL. But I want to compete with the “stackers” so…

    Thanks!

    • jal179 says:
      (link)

      @greg:

      Hear you… im in the same boat… I’d drop paredes for Rodrigues– he’s like a brown Cliff Lee! Honestly, watch his last start and you will not resist him

      Tehol Beddict says:

      @greg: thank you, Gregory, for your kind words. I never fake anything. except orgasms with women who gross me out. moving on.

      Paredes seems to be falling off like a bad bag of dope, but I MUST give hime another week or so before I dump his ass.

      My league does that same sort of thing where all the decent pitchers are owned.. Rodriguez looked pretty sweet but the boston young guns have been more disappointing than Dane Cook’s career over the past 5 years. Im kind of into Rodon but obviously he hasn’t been up to par. still P.H.A.T. Pretty hot and tempting. id probably grab rod on or Rodriguez. id prob drop guerrero over Paredes at the moment but I could regret that statement. . ur staff is rock solid. I like your style. kudos

      • greg says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: ‘

        UGH, someone grabbed Rodriguez.

        Now I’m thinking Karns, who DOES seem to have his walk problem under control. But you like Rodon? Who maybe doesn’t?

        Also, I’m very piqued by Cameron Maybin. ROS, you think he does more (overall) than Paredes or Guerrero? Like, maybe I drop both for Maybin/Karns. I have Longoria, and in OF Springer, Calhoun, Colabello (or 1st), and (hopefully coming around) Yellich.

        Thoughts? ‘preciate it!

    Tehol! I own Boxberger but am nervous after his last two outings and the looming Mcgee. Would you prefer the Box or Clippard ROS considering Doolittle was just put back on the DL? Thanks man!

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @Connor: great question. It’s always tough for these closers coming back from injury. Something always seems to derail them. Part of me prefers Clippard at this point. I also expect Oakland to pick it up a bit and Tampa to fall off wins wise

    What it is, T?

    Quick question: I drafted Sandoval to play third, picked up machado to add a bat…but he’s played his way into the 3B as Panda has been less than inspiring…he’s basically the Christian slater of 3B right? Anyway, Mr. Potential himself, Jason Heyward, has hit free agency. Is it worthwhile to drop panda (who’s in my util spot) for Heyward?

    Thanks boss. Take heed!

      @Qbert: QBERT!!!!!!!! i dont believe it’s worth it to drop Panda for Heyward, as he’s let me down more often than Slater post mid nineties. do you have a utility spot? i also am assuming that Panda rakes at some point in time. Heyward could also, but I’ve been waiting a long time for that to happen. TAKE HEED

      @Harry: I’m all about sharing knowledge. Machado. I was huge on him pre season, predicting 30 bombs, and while it doesnt look like thats gonna happen, he’s playing well and stealing bags. I expect greatness.

    So no faith at all left in Bogaerts? Even in a dynasty? What about Polanco? They are both killing me!

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @EZ$: UGHHHHHHHHHH, I loved them both like sons. they’ll both be fine long term, I’m almost certain….buuuuuuut Bogaerts just doesnt seem to have any power which blows my mind considering all the boston fan boys have been telling me for years he has 20-30 hr power. that had to be a joke. Not sure what’s up with Polanco. remember the hype on him last season???? Laaaaawd, crazy. got to hold in dynasty and pray to the Elders for their success.

    In OBP H2H league I have Lucroy coming off DL on Monday. I have Gattis too. Gattis is on fire & I’d like to trade him. I know if I give him up I’d be giving away maybe 12 HR’s. I’m #1 in HR’s & losing 12 ROS would probably make me 3rd strongest. I think Gattis can get me a SP2 which I’m not desperate for but it would certainly be an improvement. I don’t think anyone is going to want to trade for Lucroy for at least a couple of weeks and even then I’d probably have to settle for a SP3 or SP$. I can’t afford 2 catchers on my roster. So it makes sense to trade Gattis vs dropping Lucroy, right?

      Tehol Beddict says:

      @Jack: Jack, my goodman, that sounds like an excellent plan! totally with you on that. Gattis has value now so ship him out and watch Lucroy rake. Sorry for the last response. been out all day. thanks for reading

      @Marshmallow: Walker is def a streamer and maybe a most own with one more start like his last one. I really liked Ozuna before season and still think he erupts. id hold for a tad longer if possible

  33. Robert says:

      Maybe Fowler for Polanco… love both lineups

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Marshmallow: yea Fowler is in the midst of one of those crazy hot streak so maybe it’s worth it. I assume Polanco will pick it up but it may just be time to move on. on the other hand, we all know Fowler will eventually fall off like a bad bag of dope.

    Will Teix hit above .230?? If he plays 130 games I feel like he’s lock for 25 dongs but am losing sleep over his BA concerns…. just dealt Pujols for Carrasco and of course Fat Albert has awoken…

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @jal179: Prince Albert will do that but you should be fine with teix there for sure. I had feeling he would have a nice season, with wrist fully healed. he might hit 30 if he gets hot. Ur all good and thank you for your participation throughout the comment section. Double kudos points.

    Rosie o donnell loves all free buffets, especially ones involving love making with wild coyotes and just un-hibernated brown bear, both begging for attention.

    Not really. I don’t know sh*t about Rosie o’Donnell.

    Maybe you should’ve read the comments on Thurs. where I called out Grey’s awful trade of Joey Bats for a pitcher with a 6+ ERA simply because “Bautista can’t keep playing with his shoulder injury”. Grey disappointed me big time with that deal. For a guy who has shaped my fantasy baseballer style where I never pay for pitching, I was blown away that he would make such a bone headed move.

      @Kutty: Even the Gods are wrong from time to time, Kutty bang bang. BUT, there’s still time for Strasburg to come back and Joey Bats to get hurt hahah. Or did I miss something? Is strasburg out for year? i haven’t looked and I literally just awoke

    Someone dropped Kazmir. By all accounts he is not hurt bad, and is making his next start. Also, his last month was not at all bad….mostly good. Should I grab him instead of either Karns or Rodon? Peace out.

    DFowler a bag of rotten dope? Was riding the recent hot streak thinkking I had a lock of a top 100 player but am uber disappointed in his recent drought….

    DFowler or Souza or Burns ROS? 5X5 + Hits + OPS 10 teamer redraft…

    And hot damn AJ Pollock has been boss hog as a Wire pickup… that dude is destined for 15/30 season fo sho.

    • greg says:
      (link)

      @jal179: I got frustrated and dropped AJ because he was annoyingly being platooned. Sigh. Dumb move of the year along with dropping Boxberger when activating McGee, and dropping Devon Travis, though that one may be mitigated by his injury….grr. Seriously considering Maybin as my poor-man’s-AJ replacement. ;)
