Takes off Hello Kitty headphones, places head on the train tracks. Faintly off in the distance, I can hear the very subtle call of exuberance. A very, small yay. That’s the sound of the one fantasy baseball owner who has Isaac Paredes in their lineup for his three-homer night (3-for-3, 4 RBIs, 6th, 7th, and 8th homer). I’ll be real with you, I was sweating this one for Mark Whiten. Back in 1993, Whiten glued four baseballs to his hand back, and he ain’t trying to get a new member of the club. For those of you singing, “I love a Paredes,” I know. This would’ve been Ethel Merman’s best day in fantasy baseball. RIP, you bussin’ Queen. Any hoo! Hard to hit three homers and not be a schmotato, so I could see grabbing Paredes, but Cash is there. Cash’s favorite movie? Platoon. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Manuel Margot – Hit the IL with a knee sprain. Once there was this kid who got his knee banged up and couldn’t come to the game…Mmm mm mmm mmm.

Kevin Kiermaier – Hit the IL with “I can’t believe he wasn’t on the IL already; he is after all Kevin Kiermaier.” Josh Lowe (0-for-4) getting some run to do nothing, daddy. I say to my father, hoping for his approval.

Jonathan Aranda – Was called up. Rays have so many guys who are interesting if they were to actually play. Wander’s back soon, and Cash plays Walls, Phillips, and some singular guys too. Whether he should or not. Any hoo! Aranda has great contact (.310 in AAA), and some power (11 HRs), and, outside of AL-Only leagues, I can’t see moving on him. Maybe if it’s a deep mixed league and you need a spark.

Harold Ramirez – 2-for-4 and his 3rd homer, the lowest exit velocity for a home run in the Statcast era at 85.4 MPH. This was way more Nestor missing his spots than the Rays’ lineup being actually good. That lineup looks like the dog’s breakfast.

Colin Poche – 1 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 2.01. Welp, as predicted here after reading tea leaves and other sites, Poche did get the save, but didn’t look great, and I wouldn’t be shocked if it’s any one of five Rays’ relievers next time in the 9th.

Nestor Cortes – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 2.31. Has he had better starts? Certainly. Or soinently, if Curly is reading. He didn’t have anywhere close to his best stuff, and he still managed to keep the game relatively close. Honestly, was pretty impressive.

Jonathan India – 1-for-3 and his 1st homer. “If we open the back door while the plane is at 30,000 feet, can’t we just push the body out the back–Whoa! Hold on! India moved! He’s alive!”

Tyler Mahle – 6 IP, 4 ER, 13 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.57. If you started Mahle in this horrendously awful matchup like I did, then you gotta be happy with only getting tied to the WHIPping post, and not flogged worse on ERA.

Will Smith – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer. This came with a ton of friends and family in attendance since he’s from the area. I thought he was a Philly kid.

Tony Gonsolin – 5 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.58. Dude built a moat around himself, filled it with Drakkar Noir, to keep the Regression Fairies away.

Lane Thomas – 2-for-4 and his 8th homer, as he hits 9th again. What is Davey Martinez doing? The Nats are playing for nothing. Cesar Hernandez doesn’t need to play, let alone hit leadoff. I’d accept Luis Garcia hitting leadoff over Cesar. Shoot, I’d take Robles! Mostly so I can say Cesar to Robles for the toga as the takeaway.

Jesus Sanchez – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer, as he returned from the IL. I thought Jesus returned on Sunday. I was told a lie!

Avisail Garcia – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer. Avisail with Ian Happ Disease. That’s when you seemingly hit homers, but never have a high total. Mean’s while, Jordan Luplow hit his 10th homer last night. Oh…*walks around the globe*…kay.

Ryan McMahon – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer. My pals from the WWE subreddit said this was a bad week for McMahon. What gives?

Elehuris Montero – Was recalled from the minors. Too bad Bud Black can’t even recall to play him. Ya know what’s incredibly hilarious? Montero has 13 HRs and .327/.395/.563 in Triple-A. Now you might be thinking, gotta be an old prospect, right? Not only is he not old, but the Rockies acquired him for Arenado, so they have motivation to see him work in the majors. But nah, they acquired Kris Bryant for the next 15 years for $400 million.

Pete Alonso – 3-for-3 and his 20th homer. Albombso!

Yordan Alvarez – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 19th homer, hitting .312. Between Alonso and Yordan, it was hard for me to watch this game sitting down.

Jose Altuve – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 13th homer, hitting .273. Everything Everywhere All At Once taught me to be kind (I think), so I won’t make fun of Altuve today. I’d say there will be plenty to make fun of next time, but that would be a lie.

Jose Siri – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer. Siri is so beautiful when it connects. Sorry, I’m talking about my personal assistant.

Jose Urquidy – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.68. Streamonator thinks his next start is an easy bench, and I agree.

Jack Flaherty – 3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 6.00. He’s gonna be stretched out just in time for the playoffs.

Nolan Gorman – 4-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 5th and 6th homer. *picking out lipstick for my Joker makeup as I see C.J. Abrams on my team, after I dropped Gorman*

Willy Adames – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 14th homer. He’s hitting .211 and, in the Brewers’ lineup, that deserves to hit 2nd. He’s their best on-base threat!

Zac Gallen – 6 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.92. Had to check to see if this was real, and it’s not really real, but it’s not completely unreal either. Gallen looks like a two to three, and much better than I was expecting.

Marco Gonzales – 7 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.33. This start was against the A’s, a team that collectively has a .210 batting average. Yes, Khris Davis’s .247 would’ve led this team in batting average.

Julio Rodriguez – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer, hitting .272. He’s around a top 25 player right now, and Julio isn’t even in July yet.

Jesse Winker – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .214. Winker went from a .300 hitter in Cincy to unable to hit .215 in Seattle. Kelenic has no chance.

Dany Jimenez – Hit the IL with right shoulder strain from flying too close to the sun. The A’s will likely turn to A.J. Puk, whose name sounds like vomit, but he has a 1.93 ERA, and a 97 MPH fastball, so that’ll play.

Franmil Reyes – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, as he was activated from the IL. Hmm, now I kinda want the $54 Vending Machine Steak to have a terrible season so I can draft him super cheap next year, but there’s still plenty of time for him to hit 30 homers, which would put him in the top three for homers the rest of the way.

Josh Naylor – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer. Naylor, but I hardly know her?!

Aaron Civale – 5 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 7.25, as he was activated from the IL. He had his glute drained of blood, which makes sense, because he was total ass previously. Could absolutely fix his ERA in a big way, and be a usable number four to five starter the rest of the way. Could see adding him in 12-team mixed leagues, and deeper.

Emilio Pagan – 1 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 3.13, and the blown save. Still think Pagan is the closer, as much as the Twins have a closer. Baldelli prefers the devil he knows.

Dylan Cease – 6 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 2 walks, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.68. I’d like to seize that Cease.

Kevin Gausman – 6 IP, 2 ER, 9 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.19. Good to see him bounce back from his last three of four starts that made it seem like he was gassed, man.

Bobby Witt Jr. – 3-for-5 and his 9th and 10th homer. Aw, cute. Bobby Witt Jr. is acting like Santa’s Little Helper dancing on its hind legs, making sure we don’t forget about him with all these new rookies called up.

Carlos Santana – 4-for-5, 2 runs, 5 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .210. Oye como yay!

Jared Walsh – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 13th homer, and 2nd and 3rd homer in four games, and a single away from the cycle, and he just hit for the cycle about ten days ago. Good to see Walsh is no longer missing, and we can remove him from milk cartons.

Shohei Ohtani – 3-for-4, 8 RBIs and his 14th and 15th homer. He’s the first Angel since Mike Trout to hit two 110+ MPH homers in the same game. Not a bad game, but he didn’t also throw a shutout, so as a pimp would say, ho-hum.

Martin Perez – 6 IP, 0 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 1.96. Why couldn’t Perez have been my favorite Martin in March? Bill Bixby, you steered me wrong!

Jonah Heim – 1-for-3 and his 9th homer. On the Player Rater, Heim is above Sal Perez. Cust kayin’.

Nathaniel Lowe – 2-for-4 and his 9th homer. Ya know who Lowe is? Guy who you see performing well, so you pick him up, then immediately you’re yawnstipated and want someone else.

Marcus Semien – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer. What a Semien blast! *cringe*

Kole Calhoun – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer. He usually hits them in clusters like pecans, so he might be a risin’ schmotato.

Kyle Gibson – 6 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.06. Saw someone mention that there was some good defense behind Gibson yesterday, and all I could think is why did they build another field behind Arlington and what team was it playing defense?

Bligh Madris – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer, two days after being called up. Okay, Captain Bligh isn’t very good, but he could be a schmotato.

Roansy Contreras – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.89. Watching this game (because of Oneil Cruz), and I found myself sounding like Ray Searage. If only Roansy threw more to contact, he could’ve went the distance yesterday. FWICronenworth, Streamonator loved this start, and hates his next.

Patrick Wisdom – 2-for-3 and his 13th homer, Patrick Wisdom .222. Wisdom feels like a barely younger Christian Walker. Call him Christian Can-Still-Kinda-Jog.

Trevor Story – 1-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 11th homer, and 2nd homer in three games. Story’s hilarious this year. He’s Steve Sax for two weeks, then Steve Sux for three weeks.

Christian Vazquez – 2-for-3 and his 4th homer, and 2nd homer in the last three games. He goes on these crazy hot streaks for five days once a year; this might be it.

Javier Baez – 3-for-5, 2 runs and his 5th homer, and 2nd homer in four games. Just that he got two whole hits in two games in a row counts as Baez winning the Silver Slugger. Come collect your award so we can hit you over the head with it.

Jonathan Schoop – 1-for-4 and his 6th homer. You get your hopes up about Baez, then you see some garbage man like Schoop have more homers than Baez, and the cackles get deliriously nihilistic.

Matt Olson – 2-for-5, 6 RBIs and his 9th and 10th homer. Falling to my knees, raising my hands, “PLEASE ALLAHSON!” I am facing Mecca!

Ronald Acuña Jr. – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer. Tildaddy hits three more homers in the next week so I feel like he’s back!

Marcell Ozuna – 1-for-5 and his 13th homer. Ozuna having more homers than Olson is so depressing, bro. Give me an ice pop and let me suck away my pain.

Spencer Strider – 3 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 3.40. The Regression Fairies went to see Top Gun: Maverick for the beach football slo-mo, and they will destroy your ratios!

Anthony DeSclafani – 3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 7.71, as he was activated from the IL. Feels like 1979 with Disco.

Joc Pederson – 1-for-4 and his 15th homer, hitting .271. That homer is for everyone who ever emailed their entire fantasy league five minutes before the draft to say they’re gonna be 30 minutes late.

Austin Wynns – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 1st homer. Geez, gambling has infected all sports. Now casinos are sponsoring a guy’s last name? Disgusting!

1. Saves and holds are separate cats. Ratios matter. I have Seranthony but he has not pitched since Saturday. Their pen seems, er, fluid. Scott available. Hold or swap?

2. Is Alfaro an add? DH, OF and catches but Nola getting ABs too.

3. Kirby a streamer or possible starter in a 12 teamer? Seems safer than my Berrios!

4. Would you trade Wander and L Garcia (pitcher) for Tucker?

Currently tied in Ks and close in ERA/WHIP. Looking at our remaining starts, it’s fair to say my opponent has an edge in ERA and WHIP. It’s NL-Only, so I usually start my guys early on unless they are terrible matchups, and then save strategic start/sits for the weekend.

I’m not sure about Lauer and Greene though.

I wish I could wait and see how Morton does the first few innings before deciding on Lauer tonight, but I don’t have anyone with a later game to switch out if necessary. How do you feel about Lauer’s start vs. STL seeing the rest of the week?

My starts:
Lauer vs. STL (Wainwright)
Greene vs. LAD (Kershaw)
Quintana vs. CHC (Steele)
Alcantara vs. NYM (Walker)
Webb vs. CIN (Minor)
Gray @ TEX (Dunning)
Mahle @ SF (DeSclafani)
DeSclafani vs. CIN (Mahle)

RPs: Ta. Rogers, Rainey, Hand

Opponent’s Starts:
Morton vs. SF (Rodón)
Musgrove vs. PHI (Suárez)
Walker @ MIA (Alcantara)
Kelly vs. DET (TBD)

RPs: Hader, Jansen, Finnegan, Crismatt.

Hi Grey,

I’m not going to lie and say I don’t still listen to Wicked Game from time to time in my mixed batch of 90s music. Oh, and I definitely haven’t watched the video on Tidal.

10 TM, NL-Only H2H, 5×5, OBP, Keep 5 ($280 Auction)

A) Please rank these players ROS
Cronenworth, Walker, Gorman, Voit, Rojas, Morel

B) Do you see Gallegos($12) having much value in NL-Only H2H? Would it be fair for me to offer one of Lauer(4), Greene (10), Mahle (13), DeSclafani(11), or Cobb(7) since he’s not the exclusive CL right now.

C) Would you trade away Walker(3), O’Neill(18), and one of Gray(4) or Lauer(5) FOR Schwarber (31) and Nola (33)? Downside is losing O’Neill as a valuable keeper along with Gray. Could I try Lauer first, or is that not enough?

Would you accept the above trade (trade away Schwarber and Nola) if:

1) you were in last place and there was a high probability you’d finish there, which also comes with a $50 fine

2) could still bid on both Schwarber and Nola next year (I don’t plan to keep them, and that’s what they both went for this year).

3) your other keeper options are Arenado(45), Carlson(21), Reynolds (16) Wisdom(10), Schwindel(8), Ashby(6), Joe(5), Varsho(10), Bender(11), and Yaz(9)?

D) If I were to include Cronenworth(17) and the other one of Gray/Lauer in the trade above would that be enough to get back Arenado and Wainwright from them? I would not be keeping Arenado, so they’d have a chance to get him next year for $48-52.

Even though I’m getting the much better players (C/D), I feel like I’m giving them good options as keepers next year, with a chance to save money and repurchase them back. Everyone else on their team except for Reynolds is what they paid this year.

My roster is below. Players in bold are the ones I plan to keep if I trade away O’Neil, Walker, Gray, and Lauer. O’Neill would be my priority keeper followed by Gray and Walker.

CA   Ruiz
1B   Walker
2B   India(14)
3B  Yepez 
SS   Edman(20)
INF  Cronenworth
OF   Acuña(62)
OF   Soto
OF   A. Thomas
OF   Harris II
UT   Cooper
IL   O’Neill

SP  Alcantara(19), Webb(22), Gray, Mahle, DeSclafani, Lauer, Greene, Cobb, and Quintana
RP  Ta. Rogers, Rainey, Hand

Thank you.

So for A, Gorman and Rojas would be the last two?

For C, I wanted to make sure it’s at least a fair offer given the keepers involved, and then he can decide if it’s worth the $50 fine should he finish last.

What’s good Grey? I’ve been holding (out hope for) Reid Detmers in a 12-team keeper for a bit, but I think I’m over it. The waiver wire isn’t great but there are the likes of Singer, Feltner, K. Thompson, D. Hudson, D. Petersen, and Dunning that are of a little interest. Anyone stand out there for you? Have a good one.

Hey Grey,

Glad I sat Carrasco and Giolito today. I also happen to have Yordan and Kirk who teed off on the two of them lol.

What’s up with Giolito? He’s had a couple of tough matchups recently, and peripherals say he should be better, but I guess not when you’re giving up as many homers and walks as he is. Boy does he look unhinged and uncomfortable on the mound today. I just have to keep holding him and hoping he’s a tweak or two away from relatively consistent goodnes, right?

RCL league, if you were desperate for hitting and had a huge surplus of pitching, would you trade Heaney, Contreras and Doval for Luis Garcia (INF), Harris II, and Scott? If not, what if you replaced Harris II with R Greene? Remaining pitchers would be Alcantara, Verlander, Ohtani, Morton, Kopech, Wood, Cobb, Springs, Robertson, Houck and Graveman.

Its a 12 man keeper league 5x5 h2h OBP.

G.Sanchez, Olson, Ezequiel Duran, J-Ram, Story, Acuna, Kirilloff, T.Ward, Renfroe, Voit, Grisham, Pena (IL), Albies (IL), Eloy(IL).

I already offered Ward and a 4th round pick for next year and he declined. Each team has 5 keepers just to give you an idea of what our draft picks are worth.

Thanks for your help as always my guy!

Jeremy Pena available on waivers while on IL. Pick him up or grab Javier Baez since he is starting to show signs of life?

Would drop Blake Snell to make the move.

Worth it?

Figure I can go with waiver wire match-ups for a starter going forward and probably better than Snell thus far.

Shallow league. Consider dropping Strider (vs LAD) and/or Cortes (vs HOU) for Baz (vs NYY), Wacha (vs Det), Springs (vs Pit), Kopech (vs Bal)? If hold, bench either this next start?

Grey, I’m going to give Blake Snell another start or 2 but unless he pulls a Johnny Vander Meer I’m dropping. Thoughts? Droppable?
Thanks

Hey Grey,

Is it finally time to drop Straw? I’ve been benching him for like two weeks already, replacing him with a Duvall and Duran platoon. Hard to justify a speed guy that is struggling to stay above .200 and has stolen 3 bases in the last 30 days.

Change my mind!

Advise me please! Melendez and Gorman on waivers…. am I burning my claim on either? Kind of leaning Melendez because I’m thinking I can set him and forget him at that god awful catcher spot.

Do you know who you would contact in the real baseball world to affect a scoring change? The scorer for the Yanks Rays game on Monday still has not credited Clay Holmes with the win and Wandy Peralta with the save.

MLB Rule 9.17(c) The Official Scorer shall not credit as the winning pitcher a relief pitcher who is ineffective in a brief appearance, when at least one succeeding relief pitcher pitches effectively in helping his team maintain its lead. In such a case, the Official Scorer shall credit as the winning pitcher the succeeding relief pitcher who was most effective, in the judgment of the Official Scorer.

Rules aren’t really rules if their enforcement is arbitrary. We’re trying to live in a society!

Yes, I have Clay Holmes on 3 teams. Why do you ask?

Official scorer was not effective. Smug Cole gave Holmes a knuckle sandwich and then walked away singing How Great Thou Art to himself.

Not only did Colorado trade Arenado for Gomber and prospects who they’ll never play, they also paid STL over $50M to “take” Arenado. They also let Story walk and got nothing for him. Brilliant front office management.

Carrasco @ Houston today. I don’t like this start and plan on sitting him in a roto league. What do you think? Thanks

What’s your take on Charlie Morton? Last starts have been drastically better but competition hasn’t been great.
Are you starting him tonight against San Fran and are you continuing to hold on a 12 team H2H league?

Good morning Grey the White! Great stuff as always. I’m looking forward to the buy/sell this afternoon on patreon!

Starting Baz vs Yankmees and Lauer vs Cardinals today?

Also, I have Taylor Rogers almost every due to your preseason rankings. In a 10 team dynasty I’m in 6th. We really only can roster 2 closers but there is a contender looking for saves. Rogers a good sell at this point? Or hold him in hopes he’s a top 6 closer next year as well?

How long of a leash you have for Vidal in dynasties? Seen enough to move on or willing keep him? I have to make room for Jesus Sanchez coming off the IL and I have Jose Barrero and Vidal taking up spots.
