Let’s start on Jose Berrios with what Prospect Mike said, “Berrios has a great starter’s arsenal with a plus fastball (sits mid-90s) and a plus curveball coupled with an above average slider and changeup.  The ceiling is a #3 starter with good ratios and decent strikeout totals.  Most reports rave about his maturity and ability to make adjustments, which could give him a better shot at making it in a big league rotation.  Imagine a scale of good and evil with Maikel Franco on the good side and that Albright fella on the evil side, Berrios is more on the Franco side.”  Why am I a part of this example?  If I could quickly evaluate the Twins current crop of starters that are prospblocking Berrios:  Garbage, More Garbage, Utter Garbage, Shirley Manson in Garbage, Magic Garbage.  (Magic Garbage is Utah garbage where you find soiled magic underpants.)  I haven’t even started talking about how Berrios was bred in a lab in Knott’s Berry Farm by founder of the boysenberry, Rudolph Boysen, whose grandchild killed his parents and is currently behind bars (true story; yes, you’re dropping the ball, Dateline, by not featuring this).  The only thing that’s been stopping me from adding Berrios in every league is I have no idea when he’ll be called up.  I would add him now to see if he’s called up when rosters expand on September 1st, then drop him soon after in redraft leagues if he’s not called up.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Miguel Montero – Cousin Squatpants has been hitting home run after home run after home run after– You getting the drift yet?

Mark Canha – Paul Prudhomme says Mark’s hotter than Canha pepper!

Hector Olivera – I’m assuming he will be called up at some point soon.  By the by, I know he hasn’t hit well in the minors since returning from injury.  It shouldn’t matter.  He’s a Latin 30, and there’s speculation that he might even be way older than that.  His minor league stint should be like that of a veteran player who just needs a game or three to get up to speed.  He should not be spending a whole season in the minors.  Yes, I did not use a contraction there to really drive home my point.  “Forget the hammer, just do not form contractions.  Those nails will drive themselves into the wall.”  And that’s how I won Most Forceful Hardware Store Employee of the Month.

Michael Cuddyer – He’s really turned it on lately…*snooze, shoots up in my chair, looks around, sees Cuddyer’s name, falls back asleep*

Travis Shaw – If you don’t like Shaw, you’re unAmerican and Donald Trump will build a wall around you.

Matt Adams – He’s due back around September 1st.  His ass will be arriving a few days later.

Chris Coghlan – A tale of two Buys.  When Soler went down earlier this week, I figured Coghlan would play every day and hit, so I was like, “Yo, Handsomesauce, Coghlan’s gonna be your lead buy on Friday.”  As of today, I’m feeling less hospitable towards Coghlan.

Wilmer Flores – He has 14 homers and is hitting over-.260.  That’s ownable on its own for a middle infidel.  Now consider the Mets have jerked his chain, benching him, trying to trade him and pulling him late in games, and he still has numbers that are ownable.  Yeah, Flores would’ve had a very solid season if they played him every day in the top third of the order.  (And I understand he’s a LUZR on defense; I’m talking fantasy.)

Derek Dietrich – I feel a little awkward suggesting Dietrich, because his Google search suggestions sound like a bunch of Nazi generals.  The Third Dietrich?

Yangervis Solarte – The last two weeks have gone like this with Solarte, “I’ll pick him up for Coors…And he does nothing, so I’ll drop him.  He starts hitting as soon as I drop him, so I’ll pick him up again…And now he’s doing nothing again.” Notice a pattern.  Me!  I’m the pattern!

Javier Baez – I’m guessing he’ll be called up any day now, Annie Potts, but I wouldn’t bet on him starting every day.  He could though.  Damn, I’m one badass landscape architect with these hedges.

Corey Seager – I kinda give up on seeing him promoted.  And I kinda don’t!  And I kinda do!  So conflicted.

Stephen Piscotty – What does he have to do for you to add him?  Piscotty doesn’t know!

Nick Castellanos – I’m told by J-FoH (repeatedly) that Castellanos was a Creeper for this week.  Ask him about it, he’ll happily discuss his methods.

Francisco Lindor – In the last 30 days, he’s been about as valuable as McCutchen, Encarnacion, Bautista, Sano and Rizzo, i.e., you better be trapped under a stack of phonebooks if you haven’t picked him up.

Ketel Marte – Just think, if you grab him and he keeps hitting, you can run around screaming, “I’m drunk on Ketel!”  And have it mean multiple things.

Trea Turner – His use so far is what I fear will happen to Seager when he’s called up this year.  In other words, of no use in redraft leagues.

Khris Davis – Some fantasy baseball math.  Karabell owns 30,000 leagues to fill up his virtual trophy case, there’s 90,000 ESPN leagues total, Karabell doesn’t own Khris Davis; Davis is only owned in 30% of leagues.  Frank Voila!

Byron Buxton – I’m told that he has speed.  Told.  I’d sure like to see some of it.

Domingo Santana – I love, love, lurve Domingo.  I think he might be more of a deep league play or a platoon guy for this year, but I would give him a whirl.

Michael Taylor – When Denard returned from injury, Taylor was relegated to the bench.  Shows you where Matt Williams’s head is at.  Yes, on his shoulders or in his ass are also acceptable answers.  Now, Span is about to have season-ending surgery, and Taylor is about to go H.A.M.!  Dot dot dot, once Taylor’s knee heals, he’s currently day-to-day.

Marcell Ozuna – OZUNA wants to be on your team.  OZUNA doesn’t care if you have room.  OZUNA insists you kick out your mother-in-law and make room.

Jason Bourgeois – SAGNOF!  Which feels like a very anti-bourgeoisie concept.

Nathan Eovaldi – The Stream-o-Nator hates Eovaldi, just about for every start, but I’d start him in his next game.

Aaron Nola – Here is a start where I agree with the SON like I agree that no one should ever get a sun nipple shield.

J.A. Happ – It’s all streamers, all day, over-the-internet friend.

Tom Wilhelmsen – Lloyd Christmas McClendon doesn’t even know who his closer is.  Sure, he’s hinted that it will be Wilhelmsen, and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be.  Lloyd Christmas also tried to get Rodney to close games until the Mariners finally had enough and released Rodney so Christmas would stop shoving that old peg into a new hole.  Remember, Christmas doesn’t dumb only once a year.

Sean Doolittle – So far, he’s been very aptly named.  I’d also look at Pomeranz, that cute little lap dog.

Junichi Tazawa – First, Junichi is short for Junichiban Lipstick for Men.  Second, Machi could see some saves.  Third, there’s no third.

Kevin Jepsen – Perkins has had about as many setbacks as merkins in becoming accepted in modern culture.

SELL

Joc Pederson – Now is he not only batting eighth, but in a few of the past week’s games, he hasn’t been batting anything because he’s been benched for Kike.  Hey, I get it, it’s LA, you have to pay the Jews their respects, but when you’re being benched for Kike, you really need to look elsewhere.

Russell Martin – He’s a total pimp, for sure.  I mean, his full name is Russell Nathan Coltrane Jeanson Martin, Jr.  All that’s missing from that name is an ellipsis.  But Martin has stopped hitting and playing.

Adam Lind – I know, sad face with a tissue that is soaked in onion juice so it burns my eyes.  Alas, Lind has two homers and a .241 average in the 2nd half.

Brandon Moss – I went to our last 30 days Player Rater and clicked twice on the dollar amount to find the least valuable guy in the last month that is over 70% owned, and apparently a rolling Brandon does gather Moss.

Hanley Ramirez – Okay, I’m not saying drop him in every league.  Go to your waivers and if the best guy available is Kelby Tomlinson, then, no, obviously you don’t drop Hanley.  If Lindor is available?  Oh, then yeah, I’m considering moving on from this schmohawk for the last month.  It’s not so much that Hanley doesn’t seem like he wants to play, but it’s that he doesn’t play when he does play, so Hanley may not play dat, but Homey don’t either.  Seriously, I’ve had it about up to here with this guy.  I’m standing on a ladder, carving a hole in my ceiling.  Once the hole is complete, I’m grabbing onto a rope hanging from a passing hot air balloon.  When I’m about 10,000 feet in the sky, I’m standing on my tippytoes and holding my hand above my head.  That’s how high I’ve had it up to with Hanley.

                    Small sample size. He’s young, can’t assume lights out production each time. 15 Ks divided by 2 starts equals me Nelson HA HA’ing at you since I have him.

                      Makes me wonder if the deGrom owner is getting worried. I mean, only 9 Ks vs 4 walks over his last two starts. Might just be a steam only option from here on out.

    Dear My Favorite Shade of Grey,

    A few very brief questions:

    1) As the idiot who held Brandon Moss all year, is ritual suicide too extreme a reaction?

    2) Save the 12 SB’s, are you saying I would have been better off picking up Flores off waivers than spending my third round pick on Desmond? You are saying that? Why are you crushing my world?

    3) What on earth were the Twins thinking leaving Berrios down in the minors so long? Does Tommy Milone have compromising pictures of the team’s owner? Inquiring minds demand to know!

    Should I drop Puig? 12 team H2H. Have Cain, Pollock, Heyward and Bruce as OF with only 3 OF spots. It’s a 3 player keeper league but It’s looking like I’m keeping Rizzo, J-Fer and either Pollock, Posey or Edwin. Puig was my keeper this year and have been holding onto him all year, but this latest injury puts my team in a bind to pick up streamers.

    @grey: I’ve been shuffling pitching all year with a limited moves left(10 to be exact). my staff of
    Salazar ,Strasburg, Lackey, Corbin, Jimmy Nelson needless to say needs help. What do you think of the available pitchers ROS over say Corbin and/or Nelson. Fiers, Hutchison, Leake, eovaldi, McCullers, Raisel Iglesias, Berrios, Happ, McHugh, Gallardo, Nola. I can possibly pick up 3 of the available if you thing Holland can be dropped. I have jansen, tolleson, Robertson for saves.

    @Grey my staff of Salazar, Strasburg, Lackey, Corbin and Jimmy Nelson needs help the latter to can be dropped if you think any of these are better ROS I have 10 limited moves left going the rest of the way. Mchugh, McCullers, Fiers, Leake, Happ, Berrios (we an NA spot available ), raise Iglesias. Also is Holland droppable for any of these guys I’m pretty stacked for saves.

    • jvillan says:

      @jvillan: are any better choice over Corbin as well?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Holland is droppable… I’d look at matchups for these guys… McHugh, Leake, Fiers

      • jvillan says:

        @Grey: would drop Holland, Corbin and Nelson for them?

          Yup

  8. Kimbrel claimed on revocable waivers. Wise to grab Benoit; even with limited moves remaining? Or may that cryptic statement mean that Kimbrel could very well be going nowhere?

      Depends on how bad you need saves

    Would you drop Martin for Montero, Wellington, etc. in an OBP league?

    What’s good Grey? Happy Friday. Got back from the dentist a couple of hours ago and now finally beginning to feel my jaw and tongue. I’m and inquisitive guy and was contemplating last night what would be the worst thing you could eat before visiting the dentist. I was a thinking an entire German Chocolate cake, or two ears of corn-on-the-cob followed by a cup of chopped cilantro, but when asking the dental hygenist this morning, she said Oreo’s and didn’t laugh. Boring.

    Anyway, didn’t end up getting Moistasskiss through claims last night (some noid out of the playoff race did so). Still want to bail on Lind come Sunday night as the playoffs start the next day. I’m thinking (in this order) Shaw, Castellanos, Adams, Alvarez and Olivera. What’cha think? Keep it real bro’…Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Ooh, Oreos is an amazing call by her, so true…Castellanos

      • Slim Nincompoop says:
        (link)

        @Grey: That could be a funny bit on “Portlandia” or something. Anyway, thought I’d share this with you. Got back from the dentist this morning not feeling anything from my neck up. Decided to get exercising out of the way and hit up the ol’ elliptical machine at the gym in our townhouse community. Plugged in my headphones to my old-skool rap Pandora station I’ve been carefully manipulating over the past year, and zoned out. Anythehoo, I was in there by myself and Dre’s “Let Me Ride” came on. I don’t know Jamaican accents, but I know the intro, and apparently was signing loud.

        “Eeeh, whappn no baby. You look good ina ya car eh. Longtime mi watch ya mi wha chat to ya. And ya a gwaan like ya nuh wha chat to me. So whappn Dre, tell em whe di fu*k a gwaan nuh.”

        I was watching some stupid shizz on the mute TV and didn’t notice that a 20-something woman walked into the room. I finally recognized at the end of the verse. She looked at me disgusted. Still out of it due to the Lidocaine (I think that’s what it was), I held up a hand to waive. She turned around, shut the door and left. I was thinking to myself, “what the shizz”. Then I realized that I was slightly drooling while yelling Jamaican. Don’t blame her for leaving. Happy Friday!

    I am in a dire need to drop one of the SP as I have arod on his bubble butt sitting with no DH in Hotlanta

    Do you drop

    Hector santiago(held him over shoemaker ffs), Cashner, Jepsen (will he see saves?), Joe Ross (i kinda want his last start next week), Patrick Corbin, Cesar hernandez

            @Grey: goes to show how badly teams miss on good talent. Kinda why I struggle with dynasty leagues. You can draft for a decade worth of mediocrity.

              Yeah, teams can’t buy it either…Some strange mix of luck, talent and chemistry

                @Grey: Yankees did well back when Torre was in town but teams as a whole were conservative with letting the kids play. The Dodgers deal is bizonkers but I could see other big money clubs doing the same thing down the road. They took on all those bad contracts to get Gonzo (mexican) and they pay teams to get players so they won’t have to trade away all their top prospects. I’d be pissed as a Rangers fan knowing they gave away a huge chunk of the farm for Hamels.

                  The Dodgers have done a bunch moves that are all pretty much for absolutely no reason if Greinke and Kershaw win two games in every playoff series… Like they needed and then needed to trade away Olivera, just moving deck chairs around until Kershaw and Greinke take the mound

                  • J-FOH says:
                    (link)

                    exactly, all the moves were done to deal with the Ryu injury.

                      Yeah and have done nothing for that… They could’ve traded for Harang and done as well

                      Solid #3 really just keeps you in the game, which a ton of SPs can do… I’m reminded of the perfect one this year, Lackey

        Done deal thanks guys, my lineup has been dead last couple week trout, mc cutchen and friends have been MIA. I even lost to the team on auto pilot with 4 guys on the DL he had careers weeks from 5 guys scoring 30+ points to eek one out. Lost 4 of last 5 but still sitting at 12-7; hopefully it is a good time to go cold and these guys will get hot at end of season

    Grey, about Khris Davis…watch this…and I am a devoted George Springer keeper league owner…but watch this. I am not talking about injuries or playing times. I am just looking at at-bat comparisons.

    Hey Grey,

    Is it okay to drop Storen? Any reason to hold on to him at all? I’d grab Berrios and stash him in N/A and add Pomeranz for now. My other closers are Melancon and Britton.

    • Grey

      (link)

      Drop him

    • I don't want to brag, but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:

      @Fever Dog: storen hasn’t been a closer since papelnuts came over a month or more ago. holds league still has value of course. and papel isn’t a guy likely to lose his job.

Once the hole is complete, I’m grabbing onto a rope hanging from a passing hot air balloon. When I’m about 10,000 feet in the sky, I’m standing on my tippytoes and holding my hand above my head.

    G, I’m equally fed up with Puig. What do you make of this dude ROS ? I’ve spent the entire season waiting for him to contribute; would it be a mistake to drop him now with his DL stint ending right when playoffs start ?

    No doubt someone in my league will pick him up.

    My DL slots are full… guy is dead weight. Leading my league by a mile though so I could wait for his return, but I really dislike this cat.

    Would you start Odorizzi at home vs. KC? What about starting Heston at home vs. STL?
    I am hesitant in both cases although they are pitching at home.

    OBP with total bases and hits. need a multi elig guy. holt or the super hot eduardo escobar. if the latter i’d be doing a super stack at the top of MIN order, having dozier/buxton/sano already in this league. also dietrich/prado/tomlinson/solarte party available. 5 moves per week, 2 left for this one. other than steals (winning those too) i’m destroying opp, with only buxton and marte being useless this week.

      Eduardo

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

        @Grey: for the first time in years in this league i’m worried for my opps and it’s about to be playoff time. with my super MIN/TOR/BOS stack (9 hitters out of 13) if these guys keep this up opps might be in trouble, even as i lost franco for season, and kept Buxton over Heyward months ago, right when it was about to look as stupid as it gets.
        d’arnaud
        E5
        Dozier
        Sano
        Bogaerts
        Bautista/Marte/Burns
        Util Beef welington, e.escobar (streamer)
        BN buxton/shaw/rusney. with as many days as rusney, and 2 catchers get off and deep benches this has kept my off days in lineup to absolute minimum. If Buxton ever starts stealing i’ll have a lot of those too.

    the other day when you mentioned kipnis as if he’s doing badly, this just shows the huge difference sometimes between OPS/OBP leagues and 5×5. i have kipnis in one league (first time i’ve ever drafted him, did in for a dynasty on may 5th or so), and before looking i guessed he’d be a top 4 2B in that kind of league, i was wrong, he’s 5th. in 5×5 he’s actually 7th, so still ok there too. more surprising is that kinsler is better than him in both kinds, at 4th.

    • Grey

                      (link)

                      This discussion just started a convo with babys mama and here is what where I’m at. At this stage it comes down to range and mental toughness. Steven and Katrina have the mental question marks, one bad breakdown and they are done. Claudia is the one I worry about with range. If she can’t Mexicanize a dish then she can be done. Her chicken and waffles exposed her. Barring a massive mis-step I think Nick and Derrick are the top two. Range, refinement and mental toughness are their key assets.

    Hope the weekend is treating you well!! Have a couple of questions before weekly waivers are due in my 5X5 Roto leagues with weekly lineups

    1.Need to add a SP off waivers today for Carrasco,
    Available on the wire are: Nola, Ross, Medlin, Tomlin, Happ, Smyly, & Hutchinson
    Could you please rank the top 4???

    2.Should I be concerned with K-rod over the past week? Would you bench him this week for Wilhelmsen or Jepson?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Nola, Ross, Hutch… Are all dependent on match ups… Sure Wilhemsen

  76. Herschel says:

    Archer – @ bal, @ nyy
    Miller – vs mia, @ was
    T Ross – vs tex, vs lad
    J Ross – @ stl, vs atl (may get shut down)

    Thanks.

    Need help Grey.. looking like I’m going to lose again so it comes down to next week…

    ESPN 10 Team H2H Points:
    Pitcher Scoring: WIN (+3), LOSS (-3), IP (+3), K (+1), BB (-1), SAVE (+3), ER (-2), HIT (-1), NH (+10) PF (+15)

    Which of these guys should I start tomorrow in my last regular season points matchup for 1st place! I’m already starting T. Ross vs. TEX (22.1) and I know my opponent is going to stream like crazy so pick all that may apply please because I’m desperate but can’t afford negative scores!

    Hendricks vs. CIN (15.3)
    B. Anderson vs. SF (6.6)
    Peavy @LAD (-15.1)

        @Grey: Thanks man!

        Also questions about the offense:

        1. Should I stick with Logan at 2nd or pickup Rendon who is finally hitting after I dropped him a week ago?

        2. Also for Catcher, I couldn’t pick d’Arnaud in time this week but was he was dropped again so ride Wellington ROS or pickup Travis?

    did something change with the site since yesterday? i’m having to put in my name and email every post, whereas before it would remember them. It could be some odd computer setting of mine, but i didn’t change anything.

    • goodfold2 says:

      @goodfold2: good SON call on holland too. i think in deeper ones i streamed tomlin over him due to how bad holland was last time, but i did have to play holland in 2 really deep leagues anyway.

      I don’t think so

    Hanley was finally removed from the ESPN undroppable list.

    Too late to help my team, but thanks anyway, ESPN. Assholes.

      @Shoop Da Whoop: i’d love to hear what the criteria for that is, in all leagues.
