Ozzie Guillen said Jake Peavy “has some things with his arm.”  You know how know-it-alls put (sic) to indicate the quote’s error is not the transcriber’s error?  They should adopt this for major league managers.  “Has some things with his arm (Ozzie).” “Mathis just knows how to play the game BETTER! (Scioscia)”  “That’s not old school, that’s good school.  That’s the way you play the game unless you want to put some rouge and makeup and lipstick on. (Manuel)”  So Peavy has some things with his arm.  Yeah, that’s not a good sign.  That’s like my friend who was trying to sell me a car.  “It just hasn’t been started in over a year.”  I put Peavy in the “Avoid” tier in the preseason because he’s been too injured the last few seasons.  What’s he now?  Injured.  Thank you, your Honor.  I rest my case.  I’d look to sell Peavy.  Unfortunately, no one’s buying him.  Right now, the Sox are only talking about moving his next start, but it’s not a good sign either way.  Or eithurrrr if Mystikal’s reading to you.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Chris Resop – Off to the DL.  The Disgraceful List is when a player’s DL’d for sucking.  But what’s it called when the player forces a team to promote them due to a contract issue and then is DL’d because the club just doesn’t want the player?  Disagreement List?  Disaccord List?  Dis Team Has No Room For You List?

Shelley Duncan – Hit his 2nd homer in two games.  Unfortunate for anyone who had to high five him afterwards.

Tommy Hunter – Left the game with some hip flexor discomfort.  Pretty sneaky of Coghlan to step up to the plate with “The Twist” playing.

Julio Borbon – 2-for-4 with his 1st homer, now batting .285 to Andrus’ .288.  Give him the green light!

Brandon Wood – 1-for-3 as he played shortstop for Izturis, who went to the DL with a strained forearm.  If Wood hits and if he gets shortstop eligibility and one more if you’ll have a full house.  If’s over and’s.

Jon Niese – 7 IP, 3 ER, 10 baserunners, 3 Ks.  Looks like Niese has put his feud with Heather B completely behind him.  He’s pitching well and he has home games in Metco yadda3, I’d grab him.

Fred Lewis – 4-for-5 with his 5th steal as Jose Bautista sat.  The Bautista who is hitting .194 with 5 homers since I said you should sell him a month ago.  In April, Bautista had 4 homers.  In May, he hit 12 homers.  In June, he has 2 homers.  You tell me which month looks off.  Oh, and sorry to Fred Lewis for hogging his blurb with Bautista info.

Ricky Romero – 6 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks and a 3.08 ERA on the year.  I don’t want to lose people with K/9 or anything so here… Romero has 96 Ks in 96 1/3 innings.  Thing.  Of.  Beauty.  Yes, I brought out the douchey one word sentences for emphasis.

John Buck – 2-for-4 with his 12th homer.  BUCK!

Scott Baker – 7 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 12 Ks.  A Baker’s dozen!  Wait, that’s not right.  Eh, whatever.  Baker just about reached the point where I was going to tell people to lose him everywhere so he really needed this start.  I don’t think he’s completely out of the woods, but he’s in a better place than he was after his last start.

Joe Mauer – 0-for-3, hitting .311 with 2 homers on the year.  Cust kayin’.

Jaime Garcia – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks.  First time in a while his line looks like he should have got the Win and what happens?  Gets the loss for the first time since May 8th.  It’s the chutzpah of Wins.

Brennan Boesch – 3-for-4, 4 RBIs, his 9th homer as he bats .344 on the year.  Who’s been more valuable, Boesch or Holliday?  Yup.

Don Kelly – 0-for-4, ye of a .217 average and .276 OBP hit leadoff.  Your internal monologue, “Why, Grey, I do not understand?”  Because Kelly played center and Leyland only has one lineup card.

Jose Tabata – Hit his first major league homer yesterday.  I’m fingercuffed to him and it feels so good.  Then not good.  Then good again.

Matt Lindstrom – Got the save.  Guess his back is, um, back.  Lyon hasn’t been bad so I’m holding him for now where I have room.

David DeJesus – 10 for his last 13.  For DeJesus’ next trick, he’s going to walk on water.  The downside is there isn’t much upside.

Mike Leake – 6 IP, 5 ER, 12 baserunners, 4 Ks.  About three weeks ago, I was saying he was going to fall back to earth then for the last two weeks after that I’ve been reminding you that I was saying Leake was going to fall back to earth three weeks ago.  I don’t think he’s all the way back to earth yet either.

Manny Ramirez – 3rd homer in his last seven games and 2nd homer in last two games.  After the homer, he got back in the dugout and Casey Blake iced him.

Clayton Kershaw – 7 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 7 Ks, 8 baserunners, but only 1 walk.  Look at Kershaw only walking three hitters in his last two starts.  Oh, and he has 97 Ks in 85 IP.  Nasty.

Livan Hernandez – 6 2/3 IP, 8 ER, 13 baserunners, 2 Ks.  What did this fat guy who can only throw 82 MPH do with the other fat guy who can only throw 82 MPH?

Aubrey Huff – 3-for-4 with his 4th homer in the last six games.  Keeps going like this and he may get a “Huffing Along” post title.

Tim Lincecum – 6 IP, 2 ER, 12 baserunners, 10 Ks.  Was hit by a comebacker and removed from the game.  Lincecum should be fine for his next start.  In a weird voodoo doll-type way, when Lincecum was hit, k.d. lang said, “Ouch.”

Pablo SandovalGiants trainer said Sandoval needs to be more disciplined about his eating habits.  Earth to ESPN, this is a reality show!  Watch Kung Fu Panda go to the beach and refuse to take off his shirt.  Watch as Kung Fu Panda says no to Kung Pao Chicken and yes to calisthenics.  Watch Kung Fu Panda go shopping for clothes.  “No, Renteria, I can’t fit into these Dockers.  I’m bloated!”

    anyone have any thoughts on who to target with lind?

  3. ViagraFalls says:

    Jorge Posada for Corey Hart? Hart’s power numbers are impressive and leading, but his BA as a whole is hanging around .260. Keep Hart and see where he goes for a little while longer, or take the deal for Posada (who seems to be dealing right now). Posada has those stretches now and again of 0-fer’s, and his low at-bat numbers are a negative. But is it a good deal, or should I hold?

  10. steamer says:

    Need some H2H strategy advice guys. I’m in a H2H league & I seem to be losing in saves everyweek. I only have 2 closers (Aardsma & Bailey). I used to have Gregg but I got tired of him screwing my ERA & WHIP so I traded him. I am seriously considering trading my closers & punting saves. I have a standing offer of Haren for both my closers. That would give me a staff of J. Johnson, Haren, Liriano, Price, Bills, Garcia, E. Santana, Marcum, Scherzer. I know punting is never a good idea, but I have done it in other fantasy sports with success in the past.

  11. Ron Washington's Stache says:

    @and1mcgee: Boesch > Gomes
    @adam: Santana and Stanton…not sure how’d I’d slot them
    @ViagraFalls: If your OF looks good, and you have a bum C, do it. Otherwise, hold tight.
    @PhillyYorker: Alexei > Theriot

  12. Single. Word. Sentences. Can’t. Get. Enough.

    I need a new 5th SP to replace currently exiled BlunderBUSS Ricky Nolasco.

    Brett Myers or Ian Kennedy (recently dropped after BoSoxz spankfest)?

    I see Myers is facing KC today so I missed that tantalizing start. Myers seems like a WHiP-killer, but my WHIP may be plenty dead already. I don’t need Ks — do need Ws and QSs.

    Whats everyone think of Johan Santana for the second half – im in first place right now in my H2H deep keeper but I am worried hes going to give up 3-5 runs every game without striking out more then 4 guys. Should I make a deal for a young guy who could help more this yr and possibly be kept? Who do you think I can get for Johan at current perceived value? I may just have to keep him considering im not sure the valuye i could get now

  16. Sos says:

    Keeper league-lose 2 rounds each year. Player and round kept next year. Rasmus (12) and Nolasco (9) for Wainright (9)?

  17. hoju says:

    @Baron Von Vulturewins: FYI – Nolasco has some nice career second half splits.

  18. Ripken FF Card says:

    Hey Grey!

    Could use some of your sage advice:

    I play in a keeper league where we keep 5 players each year. I have the chance to swing a big trade, but wanted to get your thoughts before I pull any trigger. My roster currently is:

    C – Napoli
    1B – LaRoche, I. Davis, Morales
    2B- K. Johnson, Zobrist
    3B- Wright, Zimmerman
    SS – Reyes
    OF – Cargo, Heyward, Hamilton, N. Cruz, Bruce
    SP – Jiminez, Greinke, Gallardo, Liriano, J. Sanchez, C. Lewis, R. Soriano, Nolasco, Medlen

    As you can see, I am pretty solid at alomost every position except for 1B. I have the opportunity to get Teixiera, but the guy wants his normal value. Here are the offers on the table. Remember, this is a keeper league. Round values where the players can be kept are in ( ).

    Wright (1), Greinke (5), I. Davis (25) FOR Teixiera (1), Latos (24)


    Wright (1), Greinke (5), Bruce (8) FOR Teixiera (1), Latos (24), Boesch (25)

    I could have the chance to get Werth instead of Boesch, but his keeper value is 7th round or so.

    What are your thoughts? I am curious to see if you think I would be giving up to much for Teixiera. Now, ont he flip side, I can also get Latos who is a late round keeper. Just going back and forth if Wright and Grienke are worth Texiera and Latos.

    We do play a Utility spot which I have been playing Wright in, but if I trade him, it would allow me to play Cruz there when he comes back next week.

    Would you do either of these deals given my current roster?


  19. xopchipili says:

    that Real World joke almost soothed the pain of last night’s AJ Burnett start. Almost.

  20. Mr. Rickey says:

    Deep NL only keeper league. Another owner wants my Uribe and we have had several discussions, mostly him trying to get me to take a waiver wire type for (sad to say) one of my best players. Here is what he has:

    Blake, Casey
    Castro, Starlin
    Castro, Jason
    Castillo, Luis
    Allen, Brandon
    Jones, Garrett
    Young, Chris B.

    Any player or combo you could see making sense – Krispie maybe?

    Re: Mauer: And Chris Ianetta is not a major leaguer. Cust kayin’.

  22. Nathan says:

    Another week, another tough Ricky Nolasco decision. Texas can hit, but only at home and Ricky gets them in Florida.

    I should pitch an idea to Nickelodeon for a cartoon called “Ricky the BlunderBUSS”. I could pair him with an effeminate cat.

  23. anon says:

    WOW, I was iced two weekends ago by some New Yorkers (In Boston) and my only thought at the time was “why the hell did these guys buy Smirnoff Ice anyways?”

    I had no idea what it was, and thought they just made it up haha. Who knew that had I have been carrying a smirnoff ice myself that guy would’ve had to drink 2? Wow Grey. My mind is blown. Also, New Yorkers are strange people!!

  24. SpiralArchitect says:

    I am in a simple points 8 team H2H keeper league (keepers can be held for 2 years). We score + for TB and Hit type, RBI, R, SB and – for K and CS (for Hitters), and + for W, S, K, IP and – for ER and BB.

    With that said, I was offered the following:

    I give: Evan Longoria, Russell Martin, Andrew McCutchen, James Shields and Brandon Webb

    I receive: Alex Rodriguez, Victor Martinez, Nick Markakis, Mark Buehrle and Brad Penny

    Longoria is 0 keeper eligibility, and goes back to the draft, but A-Rod has 2 years eligibility.


  25. @hoju: I’m counting on it. If the following people have huge second-halfs:

    Ian Kinsler
    Hanley Ramirez
    Ricky Nolasco
    Aramis Ramirez
    Adam Lind
    Ian Stewart
    Pedro Alvarez
    Carlos Santana
    Minnie Minoso
    Sammy Khalifa
    Urban Shocker

    I should be right in the running for the title.

  26. Donnie Baseball says:

    you left my main man Joel out of the recap.

    Since you put him in xFIP last week, a CG with 1 ER and 8 in with 1 run. And his K rate keeps moving up.

    Great stuff as always today, and lol at KD lang!

    Pat the Bat or Tabata bread? 16 Team H2H Keeper, btw…

  28. TonyCino says:

    12 team 10×10 roto daily league, we roster 2 catchers.
    The guy currently in 1st just completed a trade with the team in 10th getting VMart for CRichard and ACallaspo. I think the trade is outrageous, but maybe I’m too close to the situation, sitting in 5th place.
    What do you think?

  29. hoju says:

    Pick three, please and thanks.

    Cahill, Hammel, Niese, Slowey, Baker, Bonderman, Cueto, Kuroda.

  30. Shack says:

    Would you start Nolasco against Texas tonight? H2H

  31. Christopher says:

    @ViagraFalls: Can’t see moving Hart for a catcher. Do you need SP? Or package him for an upgraded bat.

  32. Christopher says:

    @hoju: Baker, Kuroda…either Niese or Hammel – I’d lean Niese to avoid Coors.

  33. Shane says:

    @grey H2H League and need to fix a sputtering line up…

    drop Bautista for ___________ (Huff, Ludwick, Kubel)
    drop Byrd for ___________ (Huff, Ludwick, Kubel) OR sit tight.
    drop Berkman for ___________ (Huff, Ludwick, Kubel) OR sit tight.
    drop Napoli for AARON HILL Yes/No? Have a struggling Utley and have Posey.

  34. Donnie Baseball says:


    Baker, Kuroda, and probally Niese. Definetly Baker, he’s going to go on a run just like last year.

  35. principal blackman says:

    @Nathan: But Nolasco has also been getting killed by lefties, and Texas has no short supply of them. I like Ricky, but he has been killing me the past few starts. Not to mention Florida isn’t exactly the slickest fielding team in mlb. I’m sitting him in all h2h and roto tonight.

  36. penpen says:

    Hamilton for Lester?

  43. Grey

    Grey says:

    @and1mcgee: Apples and apples. Boesch…

    @dj: Don’t think you’re going to get much. Maybe a closer. Maybe an injured SP like Bills.

    @ViagraFalls: I’d take Hart….

    @adam: Way too early to be thinking about this.

    @shin: Shh…

    @Eric: Nope

    @BSA: Ha

    @PhillyYorker: If you need pop, go with Alexei…

    @Mr2Bits: Sure

    @steamer: Don’t see how Haren is necessary on that staff.

    @Baron Von Vulturewins: Not going to get Wins from either.

    @Buschfan51: I’m starting him in a 20 team league, wouldn’t elsewhere.

    @Jake in columbus: Ha!

    @Doug: No idea what you need… He could probably get a #2 OF or a solid corner man.

    @Sos: I’d take Wainwright.

    @Ripken FF Card: I’d take the Tex and Latos one. First one.

    @xopchipili: Hehe

    @Mr. Rickey: Krispie is about the only thing that would work straight up. Not sure what you need though if two players would work.

    @James: Yeah, but if you drafted Iannetta you were forced to waivers and now probably still own someone as productive and didn’t waste a 2nd round pick.

    @Nathan: Ha

    @anon: Ha!

    @SpiralArchitect: I’d take the A-Rod side.

    @Donnie Baseball: Thanks!

    @Wilsonian: Tabata…

    @TonyCino: Yeah, terrible trade.

    @hoju: Kuroda, Baker, Hammel…

    @Shack: Yup

    @Shane: Ludwick and Huff fir Bautista and Berkman. Is this a keeper? Why would you keep Posey over Napoli?

    @penpen: It’s fair, depends on needs. I’d take Lester.

    @Giggles Mcgehee: I wouldn’t trade for Broxton.

    @IowaCubs: Ha… I’d grab Gaby.

    @joe from point pleasant: None… Francis, Millwood…

  44. T-BZA says:

    Rest of Season:

    Robot Jones or Aramis Ramirez

    Who would you throw in the CI spot?

  45. Would it be advisable to attempt to buy low now on your preseason fave Stewart, with maybe the hyped Stanton or Posey? & Grey, you started with Jake and finished up with the fat man. Overrated players, underrated program.

  46. Shane says:


    thoughts on keeping Posey, consistent PT. Concerned that Halos may bring in a 1B thus cutting Napoli’s PT and Mathis is due back.

  47. Grey

    Grey says:

    @T-BZA: Robot…

    @zombie: Yeah, I could see that.

    @Shane: Then give Hill a whirl. You definitely don’t need two catchers.

  48. T-BZA says:

    @Grey: Gracias

  49. Frank Rizzo says:

    Is Arod/Lilly for Wright/Cain a fair trade? If so, which side would you want for the rest of this year?

  50. Wilsonian says:

    @XnadyMen: I have Ubaldo in an 8 Team H2H Keeper, and I targeted Wainwright/Stras for Ubaldo (because of a drunken comment from a leaguemate), which was denied. Then I targeted Wainwright/Werth for Ubaldo/Rasmus, and that, too, was denied. Neither one had a counter.

    I’m still debating on dealing him and a weaker bat for a solid #1 and a better bat, but I’m not sure. It doesn’t look like his train has derailed or anything. He still should be the NL frontrunner for the CY.

  51. tHe ShiT says:

    @Grey: Was looking at Jorge De La Rosa’s 2nd half splits and it intrigues me mucho. He’s on the wire and if im not mistaken, hes due 2 come back soon. Who do u like better when he comes back, DLR or Kennedy? I picked up Kennedy yesterday 2 fill Bills’ void. Gracias and its gna be a gr8 day 4 sports…

  52. XnadyMen says:

    @Wilsonian: Thanks for the offer scenarios, I think he will still be great no doubt and his ERA will probably end around 2 which is amazing for COL pitcher, but I have very good SP and could use Saves and RBI’s so I was thinking of sending Ubaldo/and a lower level bat for Palpelbone/Texieria, but I got a feeling it might get vetoed as well….

    @Frank Rizzo: Certainly fair…If healthy I think I want the Arod/Lilly side…I think Yankee Stadium in August will be a launching pad, hence I am trying to grab Tex in the trade above…

  53. Mornin’ Grey. I hope Niese does well with his pitching gig. I really don’t want to see him go back to hosting “The Grind.”

    @zombie: Since I have Smooth and Buster, I was actually thinking the same thing, as I could use a solid MI. I like MMD, but I figure I already have a bunch of TTO guys and I need AVG/SB more than OBP/power.

  54. Grey

    Grey says:

    @T-BZA: De nada.

    @Frank Rizzo: It’s fair. I’d take A-Rod.

    @tHe ShiT: dlR’s splits might have been good, but he wasn’t injured. He can be better than Kennedy, but he’s also riskier.

    @3FingersBrown: Ha! Morning, friend.

  55. tHe ShiT says:

    @Grey: Gotcha, he will b worth watching when he comes back though…

  56. steamer says:

    regardless of position would you rather have Napoli or Alvarez?

  57. Wilsonian says:

    @Grey: on that DLR note, would you predict him to have a better 2nd half than C.Lewis or Ervin?

  58. Wilsonian says:

    @XnadyMen: no problem. Those were just a couple of ideas I had. I’m debating on trying to deal him in a 4 player swap for Tex as well. But I don’t know if the guy has a pitcher I would be ok with in the deal. Would probably try an Ubaldo/Stanton (or B-UP) for Tex/Lester (or Price or Hanson). But I think that deal might be shooting for the moon.

  59. Watch it Buster says:


    Which trade is better for me:

    Give Holiday to get Lester

    Give Pence/Nolasco get either Kershaw or Felix

    Also, start Nolasco tonight vs Texas?

  60. Wow you dropped a Mystikal reference. I haven’t thought of him since heard “Shake Your Ass,” in the strip club while playing GTA 4. I’m married, so I strictly visit virtual strip clubs now. A lot cheaper anyway.

    I’m a DeJesus supporter (as Limey baseball hooligans would say) but yeah, like you said, no upside. At best, he’s the OF version of Freddy Sanchez. FraGu-lite might be traded however, since he’s in his walk year. Wonder where he might go, since a change might effect his R/RBI numbers. Boston might be a fit. Perhaps CF for Atlanta, giving McClouth the boot…

    Interesting to speculate on how trades could effect value as we get closer to the deadline… A few years ago, I bought low when Manny got shipped to LA. I guess his owner was figuring, “bigger ball-park, weaker lineup…” I figured happy Manny will hit regardless of where he’s playing. Worked out pretty well.

  61. aj says:

    would you pickup borbon and drop one of the following: qualls, tabata, morrow

  62. Grey — I debated it and finally decided to sit Ely in my 20-teamer. But if he has a decent night, I’m thinking about offering him in a deal for Kennedy. That’s worth doing, right?

    Just an aside, but earlier this week I dropped Brian Roberts in that same 20-team redraft league so I could grab Volquez for the DL spot. Earlier today, the team with the number #2 waiver priority — and the team that won this league twice in four years — used his waiver priority to grab Roberts! He doesn’t know something I don’t know, right?

  63. Grey

    Grey says:

    @aj: I’d lose Qualls for him, if you’re okay on saves.

    @Enrique: I’d take Kennedy. Doesn’t know anything, but in a 20 team league anything helps.

  64. kwak says:

    Literally, all my pitchers got shelled this week. So it’s streamin time. Any of these schmohawks worth throwing out there tomorrow?

    Matusz @ SD
    Maholm v CLE
    Kazmir @ CHC

    Yuck… I suppose I like Matusz at SD the most…

  65. kwak says:

    Or I can snag Cahill for his start Saturday vs. STL…. ugh

  66. quimmy says:

    My Hamilton for his BJ Upton and Rasmus? Thoughts?

  67. aj says:

    Thanks Grey. Should i pick up montero and drop napoli? I dont think montero is going to be available for much longer and i dont know how napoli’s playing time will shake out

  68. Grey

    Grey says:

    @kwak: Yup… Matusz…

    @quimmy: It’s fair, depends if you need speed.

    @aj: I’d want Napoli.

    Morrow an alright pick up over Ervin Santana or am I chasing that sweet K/9 rate too aggressively?

  75. Doug Ault says:

    @Grey: Should I drop Stanton for Boesch?

  76. Joe says:

    I was just offered Adam Dunn in exchange for Strasburg. It’s not a keeper league so no concerns there. Thoughts?

  77. Nathan says:

    @Joe: Depends what you need. If you need power and can take the avg hit and your pitching is okay, then sure.

    Have to say that Strasburg does look like the real deal, though. I’d try to get more than Dunn, especially if your pitching staff needs help.

  78. pjtres says:

    grey…lots of OF on the wire…

    (in a league that counts K’s, BB, Avg, TB, R, RBI, SB)

    in the apples column can you rank

    Borbon, pagan, torres

    in the oranges column can you rank

    delmon, gomes, cody ross

    Rasmus + Slowey

    @Joe: U can get a better bat IMO. Try a struggling top OF like Holliday. Or maybe even Kemp. Aim real high then work ur way down. The hype is in ur favor buddy…

    I have a feeling Delmon Young keeps it up and breaks out nasty this year…

  82. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Doug Ault: Eh… You’re done with him already?

    @Nathan: Agree with others. Get more.

    @pjtres: Pagan, Borbon… Young, Gomes…

    @Big Nate: Hanson’s side.

    @tHe ShiT: Yeah, could be.

    With Strasburg I’m just trying to maximize value, I already have Lincecum, David Price, and Phil Hughes in this weekly league so I can afford to trade Strasburg. I tried to get Teixiera from another team but they declined…should I wait a couple more starts you think?

  84. Ouch! Thanks to the afternoon game I was able to watch Ely pitch live here in Europe. He didn’t look good at all.

    So I’m scrapping my trade idea involving Ely. But is he even rosterable at this point? I have him him in a 20-team league, so the bar is pretty low. But it’s hard to see a place for Ely. Do you disagree?

    Will rajai lose pt to Senor conor j? Either way, drop him for Burbon?

    I think you were right the other day that I should have dropped smoak instead of Quentin. With that said, should I lose smoak and reaquire Q, grab M Bradley, or tabata? Totals wise, I have the highest ops and HR but it’s head to head and I’ve lost kendry. I’m 4th highest in steals totals but second to last in steals wins. Feels like I’m getting robbed. Seems like I could use average lately…
    Would you acquire any of the aforementioned guys?


  86. bodymore says:

    I just realized Furcal was placed on the bereavement list. Should I drop Smoak for SS depth (Alcides, Yunel?) or just eat the hole at SS for 2 days and grab one of the other guys I mentioned.

    Sorry to complicate things…
