Sorry if the title is a little NC-17. NC being North Carolina, baby! A little too sour? Blame the vinegary sauce, like a middle-aged man at a tailgate party, you over-dabbed. So, Jacob deGrom is the greatest pitcher of all-time. Yesterday, he went 3 IP, K’d eight and got one more by fly out, lowering his ERA to 0.54. The only problem is the Mets’ training staff is the world’s worst. World’s worst trainers are in, conveniently enough, a train going 170 MPH. The world’s best starter is on a mound going 101 MPH. At some point, they’re going to intersect and bad things will happen. On May 9th, it was right side discomfort. On June 11th, it was right flexor tendinitis. On June 16th, they’re saying right shoulder soreness. Can we just all assume they have no idea? Jacob deGrom will be great, if healthy, but it doesn’t seem like that’s possible right now. About the only thing he has in common with most starters is they’re injured. By August, each team is going to have one starter, two probables and two doubtfuls. By September, it’s going to be one starter and five scarecrows in the team’s jersey, and one scarecrow is going to pull his elbow tendon by mid-month and the team is going to say he’s day-to-day. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Dominic Smith – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, and 2nd homer in the last three games. About two weeks ago, I grabbed Dominic, after applying for consent through a lengthy process at the DMV, and then he went 0-for-20 on my watch, which wasn’t great, but now he’s out of it and hitting again.

Kevin Pillar – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .250. I can barely pronounce “junk” so I’m not one to talk, but it feels wrong to have Pillar and Villar (0-for-3, 8th steal) on the same team, and wildly different ways their names are pronounce. Sorry, Pillar needs to start going by PR, those are the rules.

Anthony Rizzo – 1-for-4 and his 9th homer, HR to the Izzo!

Jesus Sanchez – 1-for-4 as he hit third. Love to say I’m incredibly encouraged by Sanchez hitting third, but the Marlins’ lineup looks a bit like Mattingly was pulling names out of a hat:

Sandy Alcantara – 8 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.09, as his record moves to 4-6, because he’s just not very good at having teammates who can score runs. Shame, guess he missed that day of pitching school.

Johan Oviedo – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.58. I’m once again asking you to look at that Marlins’ lineup. For what it’s Cronenworth, Streamonator doesn’t like Oviedo’s next start.

Mike Moustakas – Pulled from rehab assignment with renewed soreness. Damn, that is the Mostsuckass.

Tyler Mahle – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 3.39. This was a change of pace with T.Mahle attacking a group of men led by Daniel Vogelbach.

Freddy Peralta – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.28. I love Perlatarthur somewhere between the moon and New York City.

Gerrit Cole – 8 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.31. Four strikeouts?! WHAT’S HIS SPIN RATE?! *leans in on Statcast web page, accidentally knocks over computer* Damn, that sucks. Guys and five girls, like with anything baseball related, we might need some larger sample sizes. His spin rate was decidedly down though, and he sounds like Kermit the Frog right after Miss Piggy left him for George Clooney.

Gary Sanchez – 1-for-2, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, and his 4th homer in the last six games. Screech! That dirty Sanchez got hot! RIP Dustin Diamond.

Marcus Semien – 1-for-4 and his 16th homer. After being one of his biggest fans for years, Semien’s gonna hit 35 homers and be a top 15 player overall the one year I don’t have him anywhere. Haha, I suck.

Cavan Biggio – 1-for-2 and his 6th homer, and third homer in five games. Cavan returned from the IL the hottest he’s been all year. So there is hope for Cody Bellinger? Tell me, you giant soothsayer in the sky!

Ross Stripling – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.64, and four of his last five starts have been quality-ish. Maybe not Quality Starts, per se, but you know what I mean, and Streamonator loves his next one.

Ryan Mountcastle – 3-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 9th homer, hitting .249. He’s struggled mightily this year, which is what someone says who hasn’t looked at Alec Bohm’s stats.

Aaron Civale – 5 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.48. If you listened to the last podcast, Podcaster Geoff said Civale was his biggest pitcher who he expected regression from. I say, boy, that was fast, while playfully spanking my own ass.

Jose Ramirez – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, and his 15th homer, hitting .274. Damn it, why did I draft him when I knew Lindor leaving was gonna kill his value? Why, oh, why.

Brady Singer – Left with shoulder tightness. There’s a story, of a lovely lady, who had three girls and a bad shoulder…That doesn’t rhyme at all what am I doing here?

Adalberto Mondesi – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer, hitting .345. At least when he’s healthy he hits! Yes, I’ve written the name Cody Bellinger on my hand, and am farting on it.

Salvador Perez – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 17th homer, hitting .287. On the Player Rater, it’s Salvador Perez and then hundred or so spots later another catcher or two, then about 200 slots after that another few. To say Sal P. is out-classing all other catchers is like saying Steven Spielberg is more talented than his brother Morty.

Zac Gallen – Will be reinstated from the IL today. Hunh, that seemed to come out of nowhere. Hopefully, it’s a good out of nowhere and not a “Gallen lasted two innings in what was his final tuneup for Tommy John surgery.”

Buster Posey – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 12th homer. If you were wondering who was right below Salvador Perez, it’s Posey. If you went Perez/Posey in a two-catcher league, you are killing the league, and have the most 90s indie film cred.

Steven Duggar – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 6th homer, hitting .305, and 2nd homer in as many games. Don’t have to be Norman Bates to see the benefits to Duggar up for good.

LaMonte Wade Jr. – 2-for-6, 2 runs and a slam (4) and legs (2). The Giants are having one of those charmed years where they could trade for Franchy Cordero, and make him what I thought he was.

Brandon Belt – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 9th homer. And as charmed as San Fran is, Belt will end up with 17 homers on the year whether he has 9, 16 or 2 by the end of June.

Anthony DeSclafani – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.01. The whole ‘just start any Giants’ starter in San Fran’ still works, but it’s starting to feel a little susceptible, right?

Bailey Ober – 4 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 3.71. Ya know what makes for a great starting pitcher rookie showing? When the pitcher is facing the Mariners. Here’s what I said previously, “(Ober) stands 6’9? and he might be the least impressive 6’9? I’ve ever seen. Christall Young looks like John Cena compared to Bailey Ober. His fastball was 89 MPH, and his wingspan takes the ball halfway to the plate, and it was like the hitters were using a mechanical tee. Ober had me reaching for the remote control.” And that’s me quoting me!

Nelson Cruz – 1-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 14th homer. Cruz thinks all this nonsense about sticky balls is hilarious. When he started playing baseball, the balls were made out of stone.

Ryan Jeffers – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, and 2nd homer in three games. Who needs Mitch Garver?! Well, tailors who make their money lifting inseams, for one.

Clayton Kershaw – 6 IP, 2 ER, 9 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.36. I said last week to sell Kershaw because if the crackdown happens, and he can’t use anything, he’s not going to want to jeopardize his Hall of Fame career legacy for a few months of baseball. It’s sounds crazy, but I 100% stand behind that.

Zack Wheeler – 6 IP, 0 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.15. Mean’s while, Wheeler’s headed for a Cy Young, assuming baseball writers get off their high horse, and don’t say some nonsense like, “I can’t be sure if Wheeler’s noticeable tanlines were him trying to add extra spin or avoid melanoma.”

Tarik Skubal – 6 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.36. The Tigers have a 28-39 record and if their pitchers weren’t getting ‘lucky’ they’d have a 1-66 record.

Willi Castro – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, and his 2nd homer in three games. Hot schmotato alert!

Cole Irvin – 5 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.89. Welp, that stream didn’t work.

Ramon Laureano – 1-for-5 and his 12th homer, as he was activated from the IL, but still on my fantasy team’s gee-dee IL. Come on, return from the IL, give us a day to get you back in the lineup per Kevin from ESPN, then homer. Is it too much to ask?

Shohei Ohtani – 2-for-4 and a slam (19) and legs (10). Pretty solid, but I’m still voting for the RoyalsNicky Lopez for AL All-Star DH.

Griffin Canning – 5 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 5.07. If you pick him up, Canning will blow up in your face like he just came from Spencer’s Gifts and is filled with coiled snakes. By the way, what’s up with Canning, Manning, Dunning…What’s their *pinkie to mouth* gerund ball rate?

Mike Zunino – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 13th homer, hitting .194. Who’s Zunino’ing who?!

Yandy Diaz – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .259. Yandy’s home run Launch Angle was measured at -2.3, which means he fouled it back, the ball hit the catcher’s mask so hard it ricocheted out of the park.

Ryan Yarbrough – 6 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.91. Real question: What happened to him coming into games in the 2nd inning? Why’s he starting in the 1st? Anyone hear?

Jose Abreu – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer, hitting .252. Rostering the Mickey Mouse MVP Abreu has been super yawnstipating. When Brandon Crawford is out-pacing you, it’s time you stepped up yo’ game!

Andrew Vaughn – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 1 RBI, as hits third. Comatose Since March Fantasy Baseballer wakes, “Andrew Vaughn’s hitting third! Oh em gee! In front of Eloy and Abreu, and behind Luis Robert and Madrigal?! What a boon for Vaughn’s value! A boon I tell ya! Right? Guys, why are you all backpedaling out of my hospital room?”

Yan Gomes – 2-for-4 and his 7th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games. Maybe he can give Juan Soto some pointers on the long dong?

Josh Bell – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer, now has one more homer than Juan Soto, but who’s counting?!

Kyle Muller – 1 IP, 2 ER, as he was called up from Triple-A and might fill-in for Tucker Davidson. I’d ask Prospect Itch for the Muller report, but who wants to read about a perfect phone call? Muller has shown himself to be wild, and we can’t find an AG to rein him in, which is why I asked for Sessions’s resignation. Kidding aside, his command looks like it will lead to roofies, so avoid. (I said kidding aside and mentioned “roofies” in the same sentence. Ha, okay, Grey!)

Freddie Freeman – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 16th homer, hitting .242. I was Mr. We Have To Treat 2020 Like A Goof, but please call me, We, and still somehow I ended up with both Mickey Mouse MVPs. All I ask is Freeman hit .350 the rest of the way. Is that so much?

Dansby Swanson – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 11th homer, hitting .237. One benefit I get from answering couple hundred questions a day is I get to see what people think of players. My sense is you can buy Swanson low, and I would.

Garrett Richards – 4 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.36. He said he couldn’t grip the baseball last night, and could only throw fastballs. He said, and this is all 100% true and not me goofing, he might have to learn a new pitch. MLB is starting to feel like the WWE. What is reality?

Kyle Tucker – Hit the Covid IL. He’ll be out anywhere from one day to “the timetable for an oblique.”

Jose Altuve – 2-for-4 and his 14th and 15th homer, and, like 25th homer in two weeks. Altuve’s on one of those all-time highs, like him standing on a phone book.

Myles Straw – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer, hitting around .450 in the last week. The Straw man has no relation to the scarecrows who will be in your favorite team’s September rotation.

Chas McCormick – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 7th and 8th homer, and 3rd homer in three games. Already gave our Patreon’s Friday’s Buy/Sell column, but will have to add McCormick. See, I uploaded it on Wednesdays, then I update it along the way.

Eli White – 2-for-3 and his 1st and 2nd homer. He doesn’t play every day, but a multi-homer game goes a long way to a schmotato.

C.J. Cron – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer. Remember when people were all gaga-googoo for drafting Cron? You can’t start him in road games. What a bunch of fools. Unlike us smart people who have Cody Bellinger.

Elias Diaz – 3-for-3 and his 2nd homer. Can someone check to see if Trevor Story is still playing baseball?

Ryan Weathers – Optioned to the minors. I’d guess this is them trying to throttle his innings. Gotta Weathers the Storm, Halleberrylujah.

Jake Cronenworth – 1-for-2 and his 7th homer. Elias Sports Bureau said this is the first time two guys homered in the same game who also both appear in Razzball comments in the question, “Cron worth a pickup?”

Trent Grisham – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 8th homer. You ever see Trent’s name and starting singing, “Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes, this is the seasons of love…?” That’s from the songbook from T. Rent. Meh, who am I kidding, of course you do!

Fernando Tatis Jr. – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 21st homer. Fernando Tatis Sr. should’ve skipped playing baseball and just sold his semen.

        Otherwise I could have dropped jesus sanchez, or schoop but I’m pretty sure grey thinks those guys are good enough to keep, sanchez has done nothing really in his first two games but he could be a really special player with a ton of power, I just hope that happens soon.

      Why did you feel this extreme need to add Myers though? I just checked, not a single Run/HR/RBI/SB in the entire month of June so far. I like Jesus, Moore (for the speed) and Schoop better than Myers right now.

    I know we are a couple weeks away from the halfway games played part of the season.
    Does anyone have any data about the historical standings in separate leagues for positional league placement changes? UGH….
    Basically if your in 1st place on June 17th you have what % to stay in 1st at year end?
    Same if your’re in 4th place what % do you have to win the league. I realize if you are 15 out or 3 out but hopefully my question is clear enough. UGH

    I remember reading something about this, maybe from Schandler.
    The data probably would be for the beginning of each month.
    Interesting if we could find out because a person might have to take some risks to move up in the standings depending on cats. SGP’s. Strategy.

    Sorry about my verbiage if it’s not clear. Easy to say but hard for me to write out.

    • Dave Funnell says:
      (link)

      I get what you’re saying, and while there are probably generalized stats for that, I’d say just look at your team and assess whether or not you’ve been hit with injuries and bad luck if you’re down, or if you’ve been lucky if you’re up and go from there.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

    https://kentuckysportsradio.com/pop-culture/getting-to-the-bottom-of-the-funniest-snl-related-story-ever-told/

    – sandler was either there or not when it happened at a table read
    – it might’ve happened a 2nd time in belvedere’s car

    but there’s just a lot of stuff here. all awesome. this along with one of the best sketches ever (mr belvedere’s fan club, from which we got our g.polanco brocktune nickname), just too great.

      it’s likely mohr misremembers sandler actually saying sandler was on belvedere when this happened. it’s possible sandler lied about this, but when i read it at first it just seemed that sandler was never on belvedere. or sandler took a real story and jazzed it up to include himself to impress mohr or pull his chain.

    Roster crunch! 12 team mixed keeper

    Cut Justin Upton or Kelenic? League is a keep forever but only keep 6. So Kelenic could be a great keeper or totally not worth keeping with so few keepers

    • Michael B says:
      (link)

      If it’s a keeper league I would keep kelenic, kelenic will most likely become a top player in baseball, he has really excellent speed, power, fielding, and plate discipline, he had a bad debut but hes still a top prospect, he will eventually fix things and be as good as he’s supposed to be, he could become what acuna is now (or maybe even better) acuna was not as high of a prospect as kelenic, and kelenic’s minor league scouting report is actually noticeably better than Acuna’s was. Keep in mind trout didnt have a great debut at first and many other top players started out rough and got the hang of it.

      • Kcc26 says:
        (link)

        Yeah I fully believe he’ll be great at some point. Just wondering whether he’s worth waiting for this year. But yeah I was leaning toward keeping. Just feel like he’ll have to really turn things around to be one of my best 6 keepers going into 2022. But yeah could end being an Acuña rookie year situation (whom I actually acquired that year at our trade deadline and have kept since!)

    • NUX says:

    Any idea why Streameter has Heaney +$22 vs SF next Tuesday? Because of this, I may keep him until then.

    Intermediate term: Gilbert or Stripling?

    • NUX says:

      Rudy’s tools always like Heaney. I always ended up with him in drafts and have done it enough, then regretted it enough times, that he is kinda just DTM at this point. But if you ask this comment on the SON, Rudy will get pinged and can answer this for you, since its a question that’s more for him than Grey

    Thanks!

    • NUX says:

      Do you have to activate Gallen? Can you wait until after this start? He threw 40+ pitches in a sim game and has a partial UCL tear. Maybe a good idea to see how that start goes before dropping one of these guys you might end up wanting to have this time next week

      • Dave Funnell says:
        (link)

        I hear you and I didn’t want to wait for that with Gallen….only because I wouldn’t be able to make any other moves until a decision was made for Gallen staying healthy.

        But I’m also 75/25 that he goes back on the IL soon enough.

        • Willie Mickey and the Duke says:
          (link)

          I’m trying to trade Gallen. If I can’t ,I have Snell to cut (held him way too long). I’ll activate him today if I can’t make the trade. An injured Gallen is better than a healthy Snell at this point in time

          • Dave Funnell says:
            (link)

            The trade market in my keeper is quite dry, considering his contract ends after next season. TJ makes him worthless. I can’t trade him and would probably have to drop him.

      • CY says:
        (link)

        That makes sense. I was wanting to get him there cause I could use the pitching volume this week but you’re right makes more sense to hold and see how this start goes. Thanks!

    Would you start:

    Woodruff @ COL
    Hendricks @ NYM
    Gallen @ SF

    Woodruff: yes, start him anywhere and everywhere
    Hendricks: tough one, while he’s had 6 straight good outings, he still gives up a ton of HR which is killing me in this Otteneu league. I lean on starting, since the Mets lineup is still ravaged by injuries.
    Gallen: I have no clue….for me personally wins don’t matter in the league where I own him, so 3 efficient innings works. But I’m scared.

    Lourdes needs to get some hits today or else there are gonna be some “should I drop Lourdes…” questions tomorrow.

    Also someone needs to ask about Villar so Grey can throw shade and Villar can have another good game today.

    Finally – Trade Analyzer has the following for these catchers:
    Vazquez: $4.6, Gary Sanchez: $3.30 and Carson Kelly: $1

    Do you agree with the TA?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, that seems fair

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        Spent too much time wondering if I should pick up Gary Sanchez, and someone else snagged him. How much am I going to end up regretting it? I guess maybe I should go back to Carson Kelly

          Focusing on catcher isn’t usually the best place to improve your team

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            Yeah – but still annoying to have a 0 there when I had originally drafted IKF

            Should I stop worrying about it and just let Christian Vazquez set it and forget it

                (link)

                OK lets hope this works. Let us know in the roundups when it’s time to go back to Carson Kelly…

      LG is swinging at everything right now his out of zone swing % is off the chart bad, almost in javy baez territory. I guess this is his way to try to get out of slump. He looked like he was coming around. I hope he can get going but we are approaching the halfway point amd he hasn’t done all that much. Luckily he has 2b eligibility. I plan on holding but what are they going to do with him if/when springer returns?

    Hi Grey,

    I am in a Yahoo Points league

    I could pick up Jeffrey Springs and Chris Flexan. I am just not sure. If I did pick up, how would you decide when to activate them? For example, use $ or team or ball park?

    My potential players to waive or just stay put:

    Manuel Margot
    Pavin Smith
    Robbie Grossman
    Raimel Tapia,
    Eric Housner
    Tyler Naquin

        Working a multi-team trade. When said and done this would be the net result for me?

        I get Rodon/Lynn for Kershaw/Ray.

        Would you take that deal? Move the needle much? I have some concern about Rodon and innings/starts ROS.

        I’m in a small 6-team and shallow league. Pitching categories for SP are K-QS-ERA-WHIP.

        Thanks for your advice.

    Afternoon Grey,

    Two questions for you my friend.

    1) When will Adley Rutschman be called up to be the everyday C in Baltimore?

    2) I have Bobby Witt jr., C.J. Abrams, Mason Wynn, and Elijah Tatis (Fernando’s younger brother, and whose father says he is better than Fernando is). My question is between Xander Bogaerts ($29) and Bo Bichette ($8), which SS would I get a better return package for?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Next June?
      2. Bichette is better than Xander

    What’s good Grey? I don’t need to make a move, but was wondering if you thought any of the following players were an improvement over Cronenworth or Santander for the rest-of-the-season in a 12-team, keeper, OBP league: Nate Lowe, Vogey, Belt, or Bohm (and his 8 game hitting streak)?

    Oh…thought you would find this funny. I’m on vacation and my wife is working from home. I woke up and started making breakfast after she started work, so her “office” (which is right off the kitchen) door was closed. Made some eggs, sausage, and toast.
