I want to transport you back to Jason Heyward‘s first career MLB at-bat.  They called him The J-Hey Kid.  Bobby Cox called the then-20-year-old a future Hall of Famer.  Reggie Jackson said of the sound of the ball off Heyward’s bat, “Everyone’s hits sound like they’re ‘in AM’ and Heyward’s hits sound like they’re in stereo.” No one questioned why Reggie Jackson was commenting on a then-Atlanta Braves outfielder.  Darryl Strawberry said Heyward reminded him of himself before his career was derided by drugs.  Nothing ominous there; don’t read into that at all.  Then-president Obama said, “Heyward’s legacy will be maintained as well as my own,” and the accolades flowed.  Then, in his first at-bat, he homered.  He won Rookie of the Month accolades in both April and May.  Was selected, as a rookie, to the All-Star Game and now you better not let anyone ever hear you compare Heyward’s rookie exploits to Acuña or you will get popped in the mouth.  Well, that was an abrupt reversal.  This year, at the age of 28, he has five homers and zero steals while hitting .287.  He’s a different hitter.  Brucely, until this year, he hadn’t been a hitter for five years, but more of a defensive specialist.  He’s hitting .410 in the last week with a homer and I could see grabbing him for average and runs as he’s now The J-Okay Kid.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

John Hicks – I’ve already considered how Hicks is halfway to Ty Wigginton’s record eight straight Buy appearances and I’m going to likely leave Hicks out next week just to keep Wigginton’s streak intact.  Kinda like Jose Reyes sitting out the last day of the season to win a batting title (or to get home early to his wife, because he’s so loving).

Kyle HigashiokaGary Sanchez has had lots of problems with his groin through his career, but the biggest kick in the nuts for his owners is Higashioka is doing what you were hoping from Sanchez.

Brad Miller – The 1st basemen this week in the Buy are laughable.  But not ‘laughable’ like a fart in a quiet theater, but ‘laughable’ like a fart in a quiet theater on a first date.

Enrique Hernandez – Holding onto the post title, “The Kikes Will Inherit The Earth,” for that very special game by Kike Hernandez.  Of course, I’ll be the 2nd to use that title after Info Wars.

Rougned Odor – Imagine this scenario:  I’ve been infected with a virus.  Let’s call it, the OdorVirus.  It stinks, yes, but worse it burrows into your brain and you can’t stop owning him in fantasy leagues.  To remove the OdorVirus, I’ve tried a CRISPR kit, but I don’t know how to use it because my dog, Ted, peed on the instructions, so the only way I can figure to remove the OdorVirus from my body is to pick through my skin with my coke nails.  However, instead of removing the OdorVirus, I’ve spread it to more fantasy teams and now I’m a carrier.  Sorry, you’re infected too.

Paul DeJong – He’s returning from the DL and I wrote a sleeper post for him this preseason, and loved him then.  However (please, Grey, no howevers!), DeJong might be squeezed for playing time now.

Johan Camargo – In an incredible straightforward expression of what Camargo’s done, the other day, I wrote, “He has 31 walks and only 41 Ks (.363 OBP); his pitches swung at outside the strike zone has dropped by almost 6%, same with his first pitch strikes, and his launch angle has increased by 3%, putting him over league average.  His exit velocity is 89.8 MPH which is the same as Castellanos.  Am I grabbing him everywhere?  No, but I could see a place for Camargoadams outside of Wade Boggs’ bedroom.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Jorge Polanco – The Twins seem to think Jo-Po’s return is the answer to their team’s needs and are playing him a lot, every day really.  Unless he can help their team’s pitching staff that has a 4.43 ERA, not sure he’s the answer, but he could help with light power and steals.

Lourdes Gurriel – *pulls up 1920’s bathing suit, pulls down 1920’s bathing cap, claps hands together preparing to dive into pool, dives headfirst*  “Okay, why is the pool cover on?  It’s the middle of the freakin summer!”  That’s a visual representation of what I’m thinking it’s going to be like picking up Gurriel.  Sure, dive in, but the pleasure you seek may be short-lived.  That sounds like what Newport cigarettes’ new slogan should be.

Avisail Garcia – Just gave you my Avisail Garcia fantasy.  It was written without any opposable thumbs.  Thanks to the badger I’m holding in captivity!

Josh Reddick – Just gave you my Josh Reddick fantasy.  I dictated it to my badger, while I wore a sequined American flag jacket.

Kyle Tucker – Just gave you my Kyle Tucker fantasy.  It had too many typos to count.

Mark Trumbo – Just gave you my–Kidding.  We don’t need no stinkin’ badgers writing Trumbo posts!  *badger I’m holding in captivity looks up at me and smiles slightly, I raise my glass back, air-toasting* And that is the most beautiful man and badger moment this world has ever seen.

Scott Schebler – In the grand scheme of stupid team and manager decisions, Riggleman ranks low.  He’s not awful; he’s just randomly double-switching Winker out of the lineup and platooning Schebler when he shouldn’t be.  Of course, it’s still stupid.  Stop trying to gaslight me, Riggleman!

Joe Jimenez – Hold onto your hat (if you’re wearing one, I don’t wear hats because my hair is luxuriously coiffed), there’s about to be a ton of SAGNOF bamboleos.

Blake Parker – I dreamed you, I saw your face, caught my lifeline when drifting through space, I saw an Angel, I saw my fate, I can only thank God if The Sciosciapath uses Parker late.

Tyler Clippard – Not sure when Tepera’s coming back, but you can go to the nearest Japanese restaurant and ask them.  They will not be offended.

Seranthony Dominguez – This one I don’t get why you don’t pick him up.  Sure, Kapler has SAGNOF ADHD, but Dominguez should just be owned.

Will Smith – If a player in the majors was named Carlton, Jazzy Jeff or Jada, I’d pick him up just for the fantasy team screenshot.  The only pitcher that is ‘working’ in the Giants’ pen is Smith, so that’s who I own.  Due to the arm he throws with, he might not get every save.  People prefer a guy who throws righty or with both arms.  Or so Pat Venditte keeps telling me in my DMs.

Sergio Romo – Appears to be locked into the closer role and it will stay that way unless anyone gives the Rays literally anything for him in a trade.

Steven Matz – I’m here for this Stream-o-Nator call.  I’m less here for its call to a plastic surgeon to see if it can be made to look ‘more human.’

Nathan Eovaldi – He’s been much better this year than at any point in his career, but this is also a Stream-o-Nator call.  “I look like the Tin Man and I want to look more like a human.  I’d even accept Mickey Rourke, whatever that is.”

SELL

Travis Shaw – This one sucks.  Being real with you, I own Shaw and this hurts to say, but he’s not right.  He’s nursing a sore wrist and it’s just…ugh, not right.  I mean, I hope he’s right, but he’s not right.  Put hope in one hand and a sore wrist in the other hand and you have one empty hand and another hand holding your wrist.  Can you do karate?  You look like you’re about to.  Stop holding your wrist or bow and fight.  I’d go to the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and see what you can get for Shaw.  I would not trade him for a ride up three floors in an elevator with Solange Knowles.

    REPOSTING FROM OTHER POST

    Had 30 or so people over for July 4 party. Neighbors I will probably only wave at for the next year. Now I have 30+ leftover bottles of beer in my fridge. I don’t really drink beer anymore either. The 2 bottles of red wine left over will be gone by Monday. What’s your poison anyway?

    Still in Palm Springs? wtf r you guys doing every day?

    btw you had him in the Buy column already. But Starlin Castro is quietly putting up decent numbers, at least leadoff type numbers. Minus the steals. Actually nvm it’s pretty meh. unless he hits 10 HR in the second half. which he very well might. boring topic fuck castro.

    Tried to watch the Disaster Artist cuz Oscar nominations. I liked hearing Franco do his accent. But got bored. Did you ever watch the movie Split?

      I don’t really drink… Never have beer in fridge, I’m a bad guy’s guy… We head back to LA tomorrow, then out to Aspen next week for All Star break… I never saw Split, which one was that? You should see Hereditary…

      • Peacecoast says:
        (link)

        @Grey: ugh I don’t like horror movies. Split is the M. Night latest flick. Ironically I think it’s kinda horror too. I heard it’s excellent. Pls watch it and let me know. and watch the Lobster for fucks sake Grey how many times do I have to ask you. Literally no one else in the world I know has watched it and I have no one to discuss it with. and you know lambda and all.

          Grey says:

          I gave up on M. Knight, he’s done so many terrible movies… Maybe if it were on TV I’d watch… I hate horror too, but shizz was crazy! I will watch The Lobster when Cougs wants, it’s on our list… We’re watching Secret City on Netflix now, which is solid

    Heyward, Trumbo, Reddick, Souza

    OBP and SLG are cats (AVG is not a cat).

    That order look right?

      Seems fine, depends on needs, prolly slide Trumbo back a few

    Bregman and MadBum or Bryant and CMart for standard categories forever keeper league? I’d be giving Bryant side. If you could add some info about your choice or if either side should have to add a 3rd piece I’d appreciate it. Thanks

      Sounds fine

    Expanded question from other post.

    Keeper league with 9 keepers and 20 man minor rosters. Don’t have to promote Adell till he passes rookie status.

    I have been offered Starling Marte for Jo Adell, do I take it?

    10 tm h2h keeper league (OPS, no AVG) a guy really wants my Correa. Currently offering me a pupu platter of spare parts but I could push him for at least a keeper in return.

    1.) Drop any of Trumbo, Healy, Minter, Yates, Trivino for K Tucker stash? (10 tm, 5×5, 1600 ip max, daily moves)

    2.) J. Zimmerman over Minter, Healy, Trumbo, Gausman, Yates, Romo?

    3.) Same Question for Eovaldi (as #2)? Maybe mention a second player if Zimm had a drop..

    4.) Heyward over Trumbo, AGarcia, Reddick, Healy, Adams?

    Thanks!

    Mr Telephone Man, there’s something wrong with my line–cause I think Grey just labeled Heyward as a buy! Seriously, mad props on this new edition of Buy Sell.

    The stunting of Winker’s development continues as he’s not in today’s lineup against a guy he’s gone 1-2 against in favor of Schebler who’s 2-9 and B-Ham who’s 3-18. Does CIN have no idea what a rebuild is?

    A) Glad you listed Camargo (even if a bit non-committal) today, as I just grabbed him yesterday as a general fill-in after Gleyber got hurt. Do you think I should dump Camargo for Souza? My avg is already in the toilet thanks to the efforts of Gallo, C Santana and Bryce, so I’m thinking I may at least try and rack up some counting stats. Good move or coin flip between the two?

    B) I’ve got Freddy Peralta going today (SON has him as a 6.3). That ATL offense shouldn’t scare me off starting him, right?

    C) My wife and I are headed to Santa Barbara tomorrow. We’re looking forward to the scenic drive there and very excited to try their vegan restaurants. Any cultural spots we should make sure not to miss…? We already plan to visit the old mission.

    Thanks a lot!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha, thanks! Has anyone been talking about what they’re doing with Winker? A. Nah, can hold him until Souza does something B. I’d start him C. I don’t know SB very well, tbh… Never really loved it, there’s great coffee at Handlebar (not just saying that) and breakfast at The Shop

      • GrassyKnollRedding says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks for the Handlebar suggestion. We’re heading out very early tomorrow so I will definitely be needing coffee when we get there. Will keep The Shop in mind.

        Haven’t seen any stuff about how Winker is being jerked around by the Reds. Their player development looks to be behind everyone except maybe the Rockies and Mets. Management seems delusional. CIN almost acts like a team who thinks they’re playing for something this season. It’s very odd.

    Hello Grey,
    Is Darvish droppable in a Yahoo 10 Team H2H Points League? Not sure who I would be adding, but he is taking up a DL spot that could be used by one of my other lame ass SPs. Gaussman perhaps? Yeah, I said it. I kinda have nothing to lose at this point as my pitching is a mess.

    are you buying this “new” K.Gausman?
    last 3 starts ERA – 3.00, 1.50, 2.25
    last 3 starts FIP – 6.27, 4.44, 4.23
    a drop in K’s but rosterable ratios.
    Gausman has KILLED me the past 2yrs so a little hard for me to buy in, plus now I have Pivetta when I need those 3ip, 7er, 2k or 8ip, 1er, 9k starts.

    Do I send Z.Britton for K.Gausman?
    (i cringed at this offer but i have 5 closers and Britton’s value is going to drop when he’s dealt to Dodgers with Machado)

    im trying to fill the hole Seth Lugo left in my rotation -said no other 2nd place team ever- so I do need another sp and the wire is beyond junk.

    So, just curious on your thoughts: Kike Hernandez is ranked on the Trade Analyzer at -$17.40

    Is he a literal flash in the pan? Or worth trading in a package of K. Marte and K Hernandez for Michael A Taylor or the likes? The T.A> says it is a landslide win for the Taylor side by $20!

    Not the right article but might as well ask

    Dynasty league trade question:

    My Scooter for his Edwin Encarnacion. I really don’t need EE as I have Abreu and Scooter prob fits my team needs better (position flexibility has been key to me with him) but it’s the track record of EE that’s holding me up on what to do here.

    Good evening & happy Friday on this 4th of July week! With the holiday on Wednesday my days are all discombobulated this week, I feel like Mr bean driving down a one way street the wrong way!

    Anywho, on to my fantasy squadron: h2h points weekly lock league. Lost gleybor Torres to DL it’s a weekly so I’m stuck rest of of the week . Torres was / is my SS this week due to injury because Correa hit the DL.

    I can however move Bregman who’s SS & 3b eligible then put Eugenio Suarez from IF to 3b. Then I have a few options for IF

    Since I moved Torres to DL I can now add a player without having to drop anyone, options available are:
    Max muncy (3b/1b), John Hicks (c/1b), mark trumbo (of/DH), Wilmer Flores (1b/3b), Eduardo Nunez (2b/3b/OF), kyle tucker, johan camargo (3b/SS). Looking for a longer term bat a particular position need isn’t needed just best overall . I may have a poor bat to drop so technically could use two bats best avail

    Which 1 pitcher would would want ROS: bieber, matz or matt Harvey? Is Harvey back to being good & trust him going forward?

    Thanks man!! Have a relaxing weekend. Side note what’s your mt Rushmore of states you want to visit that you haven’t yet: mines: Texas, California, Arizona, Washington state

          Oh you’ll have a blast in Tennessee I went approximately 12 years ago, yeah been awhile. I had a conference/ business expo in Nashville we stayed at the grand ole opry hotel I think was massive , I
          went with my dad for the family business & we agreed we only wanted to do seminars etc small percentage of the time rest of time of fun. We rented a car one day & drove to the jack daniels distillery in Lynchburg Tennessee- that was quite the tour very informative loved the town that JD is in it’s funny it’s in a dry county not sure if it’s changed. But the car ride from the hotel to Jack daniels was 2 hours or so it wasn’t close by but we still went.
          Now that I’m older & in my mid 30s I want to go back and check things out Graceland for Elvis is on my list . Def want to go back to Nashville I have friends who live in the Chattanooga area of Tennessee which is approximately 2-3 hours away from Nashville but every so often they would make a weekend and go to Nashville they described some of the bars as unique & hipster-esque & some have the roof top bars which overlook the Titans stadium

    It looks like Thor and Stras will be coming off the DL soon and I need to finally find a deal or two to make room on my roster to activate them. I’m in a standard 5×5 season long roto with 3 Bench spots and 2 DL spots.

    I was thinking of making an offer where I give Berrios and Cody Allen (need to do a 2 for 1 for roster spots) for either Albies, Turner or Bregman. Would you make this offer for any of these three, and if so, in what order of preference?

    My hitters:
    C Molina
    1B Freeman
    2B Baez
    3B Arenado
    SS Story
    OF Trout, Springer, Betts, Judge
    UTIL Goldy, Benintendi
    BENCH: Correa

    My pitchers:
    Kluber, Nola, Severino, Pax, Bauer, Berrios, Thor (DL), Stras (DL)

    Kimbrel, Jansen, Allen, Doolittle

    Keeper/trade question. 12 team daily league with QS instead of wins we keep 5 players each year 260 budget. My staff with keeper values. Guys can be kept at this price in 2018 and 2019 or given a contract in 2019. However pick ups are only keepable in 2019. I denoted them with an *

    Snell 3
    Clevinger 2
    Tailon 7
    Flaherty 5*
    Bieber 5*
    Seranthony 5*
    Kela 2
    Box 3
    Cody Allen 8
    DL Buehler 5*
    DL Darvish 23

    I have plenty of hitter keepers and I may keep snell. I am okay moving any of my other pitchers T I love Clevinger his division is awful so he should be good for solid match ups vs KC, Detroit, Chicago and maybe Minnesota if they sell. However, I’m open to maybe moving him for something to win the title. 2 of the bottom 3 teams have Nola and Severino both can’t be kept next year. Would you try to move Clevinger for 1 of them? Is that a big enough upgrade at a $2 keeper price or should try more? Team with Nola has Kimbrel team with Severino has Chapman. I

    I could try Boxberger or Kela to get them.

    Thanks for the help

    Any worth dropping for Zimmerman, Maz, Peraza. Winker? Have been sitting on some solid talent, trades have been scoffed at and looking to get some streaming spots! Thanks for your advice, has helped me be a major contender in my long term local league!

    Acuna Jr.
    Gary Sanchez

    K, so I had a counter offer of (gulp) giving up Lindor (gulp gulp) and Quintana for Verlander and Bregman.
    Man, Lindor side right? Ya, answered my own question!

    SPs:, Nola, R.Ray, Rodon (gonna drop when Walker B. is back), Quintana, Pivetta, Wood, [streamer]

    So, decline that trade? Probably couldn’t live with myself if I accept. When I do, a 1 for 1 of Lindor should fetch a top 3 SP or something? I’m only contemplating this because my hitting is stacked.

    Scooped up a Tucker in my OBP league.

    Which OF gets cut out of Bauers, Conforto, and Mancini?

  114. Hankg says:
    (link)

    Strategy question. I’m currently battling for first place and trying to make up ground in steals/pitching categories (I have big leads in most hitting categories). This is also a keeper league and, based on league rules, my top two keepers are Betts and Lindor. I’m now weighing whether to play out the year with these two or deal one for upgrades at other positions. One possible deal would be Lindor, Porcello, Suarez and Odor (the last two are on my bench) for Marte, Bogaerts, Bumgarner and Morrow. Would this deal be worth it for this year or should I ride it out with Lindor and see if I can upgrade through smaller deals. Sorry for the long email and thank you for the advice.

    I have Dominguez/Vizcaino/Rodney as closers. Have kept Herrera around since his trade from KC, but he’s pretty much just a lower ERA/WHIP guy and doesn’t get many save opps anymore in Washington.

    I have Bundy coming off the DL and need to make room….
    Should I drop Herrera?
    cut a bat like Trumbo/Gardner/Murphy?

        B: If my tightest category battle right now is in AVG, should I dump Ohtani the batter for Starlin Castro for my Util, even though Ohtani may give me more HRs the rest of year?
