Yesterday, Jazz Chisholm Jr. (1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer) was moved back to the leadoff spot. Whatever was worked out between Jazz and Don Mattingly was worked out behind closed doors. There’s no way of knowing. What happened, if I had to guess, was Jazz said to Don, “I’m sorry for drawing a mustache on all the photos of you around the clubhouse. The Rollie Fingers-curl was especially inconsiderate. I still think your machismo is being undersold clean-shaven, but I respect your opinion.” Then Don replied, “And I’m sorry I said your parents have no taste for naming you after the worst Ken Burns doc.” Then later on, Jazz heard someone named John, thought it sounded too much like Don, and said this:

So, the Jazz drama’s prolly not done yet. I’ll admit to maybe being too reactionary about Jazz being a Sell in the 1st week because he was hitting 9th, and I’m glad Don came to his senses. Also, in this game, Jesus Sanchez (2-for-3, 3 runs and his 3rd homer), hit his third homer, and looks every bit of the sleeper I called him to be in the preseason. Speaking of sleepers, Rudy tells me the title means P = Pablo, Js = Jesus and Jazz. Mmmkay, and the Pablo Lopez (7 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 0.52) I was very worried about in the preseason looked as good as the Rodon and Kershaw, who I was equally worried about. It’s a long season though, and it’s not exactly actionable to say Pab-Lo will just get hurt, but, well, that was the concern with his shoulder. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

George SpringerJays reporter said “x-rays on Springer’s forearm thankfully came back negative.” Thankfully for whom?

Kevin Gausman – 8 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.89. If he’s doing that in Fenway, which I very much expected from him, are you worried about him anywhere? Me, no. I’m asking you.

Tanner Houck – 5 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.21. Wrote a sleeper post, I’m a fan — a Fanner, so to speak. On a side note, is anyone besides C.J. Cron going to homer this year?

Byron Buxton – 1-for-4 as he returned from an injury that I’m still not sure what it was. Has it become, “Hey, I’m Byron Buxton so I’m supposed to be injured for five days to roughly three months so I’m sitting out today?”

Emilio Pagan – 1 IP, 0 ER and his 1st save. He won’t be in this afternoon’s Buy — which is already available on our Patreon — because I don’t know if I’d call Pagan the closer. I’m not sure he’s even the setup guy. Then again, he could get all the Twins saves. Only thing clear about that pen is how unclear it is.

Joe Ryan – 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 1.69. Lot of people asking about Joe Ryan in the comments, and it’s not to find out if my favorite Joe Ryan was Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck or Jim from The Office. My problem with him early on was his command was wonky — 3.6 BB/9 going into yesterday’s game. That kind of thing can fix itself in two games. I don’t dislike Ryan now, I never did. It might’ve been a small sample issue.

Michael Pineda – 5 IP, 0 baserunners, 3 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 0.00. What’s the opposite of 0.00? That’s his weight. Think if we popped Pineda open there wouldn’t just be candy. Dude is putting down some chicharrones. Streamonator hates his next start, and I’d be lying if I said I trusted him (with a dessert cart).

Jordan Montgomery – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.51. JoMo looks so good that I’m assuming everyone who keeps asking about dropping him hasn’t watched him. It’s the only thing that makes sense. Lefties don’t have a chance; righties just barely.

Jake McCarthy – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer. He’ll be in this afternoon’s Buy column. Not because someone stuck their hand up my butt and puppeteered me for McCarthy. Well, not the only reason.

Cooper Hummel – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer. I’m big-time interested in Hummel. Those little figurines get me so excited! Sure, I prefer porcelain, but copper is interesting–Oh, wait. Wrong forum. So, Hummel is interesting: some power, some speed, and solid contact. Likely more of a 15-team or deeper guy, but I’m monocole’ing.

Matt Davidson – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer, as he batted third. Fun fact! Mattmas in Spanish is Davididad. So, unlike the White Sox lineup, we’ll get to it in a second, I’m not sure who I’d want hitting third in Arizona to replace Davidson. They have nine 9-hole hitters and nine 3-hole hitters.

Nelson Cruz – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer. Should’ve known a 64-year-old, who eats dinner at 4:30, won’t be late on an 88 MPH sinker.

Josh Rogers – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 5.14. I keep seeing Rogers at the top of “Most Viewed” charts on waivers, and I’m like, “People are wasting their eyeballs.”

Trevor Bauer – Had his leave extended another week. Something no one mentions about Trevor Bauer returning is how he is causing himself to miss games. MLB can’t investigate because the phone records were sealed. The phone records were sealed because he sued his accuser to cover his legal costs. A pittance for him, too. For ten grand, he’s dug his own hole. Trevor Bauer = a hole? Yup! Could MLB close his case without the phone records? Sure, but he’s giving them reason to avoid that. My guess was he’d be pitching by April, so I honestly don’t know, but that’s why he was so cheap in drafts. No one knows.

Jordan Hicks – 3 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 1.29, as he started the game. I guess it doesn’t matter how many innings guys throw, but how long is it going to take to stretch Hicks out? Four weeks? Shouldn’t he go to the minors and stretch out? Do people not do that anymore? Kinda being sincere.

Julio Teheran – Signed with the Staten Island FerryHawks. Fun fact! FerryHawks wear Drakkar Noir and their cry sounds like, “Maaaaaaa!”

Daniel Vogelbach – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, and 2nd homer in three games, and first homer hit by a guy who people are like, “How does he find pants?” Hot schmotato alert continues to sound.

Paul Blackburn – 5 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.80. Streamonator hates his next start, and I agree, which should be all you need. Why is it not?

Sean Murphy – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .259. Also, in this game, Cristian Pache (1-for-4) hit his 2nd homer. On my RCL team, I had both of these, and that’s one of those situations where you’re like: *Tigers Woods fist pump* …wait, it’s no brag having two A’s hitters… *Tigers Woods’s ex swinging golf clubs into the side of my computer while it displays my fantasy team*

Dany Jimenez – 1 IP, 0 ER, and his 2nd save, ERA at 0.00. Trivino is likely to take the closer job right back, when he returns, but Dan-Jim, no relation to And-Gim, is my best bet for saves in the interim.

Eduardo Escobar – 1-for-3 and his 1st homer. Was kinda bummed I didn’t get Escobar in more places in the draft season, because I think he was undervalued. Middle of a good order, and could hit 27 homers. Sound great? No? Have you seen the current crop of 3rd basemen?

Francisco Lindor – 3-for-5, 2 runs and his 4th homer. Francisco Lindor becoming a top 15 overall player again was, honestly, not something I saw coming.

Carlos Carrasco – 7 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 1.47. Absolutely can be great for 120 IP. Will he throw more than that? How about this question instead: Will anyone? *your brain explodes*

Anthony DeSclafani – 5 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 6.08. Singlehandedly disproving the theory that all Giants starters are good. More like DeStinkturnonafani.

Mike Yastrzemski – 2-for-4 and his 1st homer. Carl’s Jr. Jr. doing it better than Jake Burger.

Ty France – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .327. Came within a triple of the cycle, i.e, Ty’s Tour de France.

Julio Rodriguez – 0-for-5, 4 Ks, hitting .136 Also, Jarred Kelenic went 0-for-3, 2 Ks, hitting .154. The Mariners should start a dry cleaning establishment, because their rookies be pressing!

J.P. Crawford – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .310. With each homer by a player (all three of them in the league), I look at the player’s recent games to see if a hot schmotato is rising, and Crawford, like many, hasn’t done much.

Drew Steckenrider – 2/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 3.18. I’d say Kazaam!, but I don’t even know who the Mariners’ closer is. Was it Steckenrider? Sewald? Castillo? Can Steckenrider take PEDs so I can call him Steckenroider? I got questions, y’all!

Jon Gray – Hit the IL with an MCL sprain. Ugh, someone went medieval on his knee.

Franmil Reyes – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer. Ain’t gonna put all my bad juju on the $54 Vending Machine Steak by counting down his homers from 50, but he’s totally hitting 50 homers this year.

Zach Plesac – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 1.53 vs. Dylan Cease – 5 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 3.38. I have one of these guys in every league and one in no leagues. *dancing down the Joker stairs*

Luis Robert – Left the game with a tweaked groin. We need everyone to put down whatever it is they’re doing and form a giant prayer rectangle.

Leury Garcia – 0-for-3, 1 run, hitting .069, as he batted third. Batting Leury Garcia third is called in the business, “Does Tony La Russa need a wellness check?”

Jake Burger – 1-for-3, 1 run as he plays over Vaughn. Elias Sports Bureau has announced this is the first time that two burgers were ever in the same lineup (Nothing – 3rd, Jake – 8th).

Matt Olson is having a great start to the season right? Batting .400, 2 homers with an OPS of 1.16, just awesome. Guess how many RBIs he has, that’s right, just TWO! How is that even possible! It’s not just him but I am way behind in RBIs and most everything, this year sucks so far. Just venting, thanks Grey!

Hi Grey,

Due to your advice on pitching, I have had the best week ever. Thanks so very much!!!

I thought that, after two weeks, I should take a step back and review my pitching staff with you. Hope that’s ok.

1. Corbin Burns of the Brewers.
2.Freddy Peralta of the Brewers:
3.Merrill Kelly of AZ.
4.Mike Clevinger of Cleveland (IL)
5.Mike Mikolas of St Louis.
6.Pablo Lopez of Miami.
7.Andrew Heany of LAD (IL) 
8.Chris Flexan of Seattle
9.Cal Quantril of Cleveland
10.Tyler Anderson of LAD.
11.Paul Blackburn of OK
12.Christian Javier of Houston.
13.David Peterson of Mets.

1. How would you rate this staff?
2. Who are the keepers?
3. Who are the lowest?
4. Would you waive any for Will Crow of the Pirates?

Thanks with your patience on all these questions!!

.119/.229/.143 line in 48 PA so far this year.
38% K%
8% walk rate
Contact% – career-worst 68%
Chase Rate- 35%

Votto is weird, he’s an OCD tinkerer with himself every year, so there’s a chance he fixes himself, he’s done it before. But he’s also 38 years old, and that lineup aint what it was. That Reds toolbag front office stupidly gutted that previously excellent lineup… so dumb.

Hi Grey,

I followed your advice and started Paul Blackburn and Pablo Lobez. Well done! I also followed your advice and picked up Cristian Javier of Houston and Tyler Anderson of the Dodgers.Thanks for your honesty!!

A couple of pitching questions:

  1. I was was going to start Seattle’s Chris Flexan at home against KC. Do you agree?

2. I was going to start Freddy Peralta of the Braves on the road against Philadelphia. Do you agree?

3 I am leaning to starting David Peterson of the Mets on the road against AZ.
Do you agree?

Serious question: Is there a reason the Astros need to start Jake Odorizzi and keep Christian Javier in the pen? Was this in the fine print of the punishment for cheating?

But my real question is, can I start Freddy Peralta today in good conscience? I’m in a H2H category league and am exactly tied with my opponent on ERA and close on WHIP. He is my #2 pitcher I drafted and I’m terrified to start him today.

there was no player punishments for that. only cora and the GM not current coaches or GM. which makes each and every one of those players’ social media (could be said to be easily justified) complaints about HOU getting away with that stuff utterly hilarious as MLBPA had to sign off on those players getting no punishments, but of course not one of them wants to talk about that stuff.

The only conclusion that I can draw RE Bieber is that he is a firm hold for me….the entire fantasy world is shitting all over him, but no one wants to sell him at a discount. But if you play in a league where people have half a clue, no one is trading you another ace for him. People are scared to death of him, but no one will sell low.

With your guidance, I obtained France for Walsh which helps solidify my MI. Not loving my squad and injuries are an issue right now but it is a marathon and our league is a 12 teamer, h2h so I have time to upgrade it to a playoff contender.
Best on the WW:
Grisham, Wisdom, Gross, Adolis, Rowdy
Ober, Kelly, Gonsolin, Melancon

1. I have one streamer spot for pitching as we have 7 moves per week. But I likely will need to use that spot on a bat since I will have 3 guys on IL. If you agree, who is my Pickup? Leaning Trent and then go light a candle. Rowdy doing damage too.
2. I like Gonsolin. If Ranger does not have a good outing would you swap them or hold?
3. Other ideas welcomed as I am obviously concerned about Eugenio and Donaldson.

Stephenson
Freeman, Donaldson, Joe
France, Polanco, Lindor
Robert, Lourdes, Happ, Vaughn, JulRod
Util: Eugenio
IL: Acuna
SP- Montas, Cease, L Garcia, Kershaw, McClan, Ranger
RP- Hader, Sims, Rainey, Diekman (holds is a category)

Thank you. I did draft Donaldson very late (198th) which still was too high and picked up Eugenio off the wire when there was a short slate of games. I hate them both but not sure Wisdom or Bohm get regular playing time. Happ sitting today as well…need bodies!

Perfect. Thank you. I will put a claim in for Trent and drop Eugenio. Then I get to keep my streamer position (Brash tomorrow). Feeling better now sir!

Any of them worth playing over B. Rodgers?

hey Palmino I got the move itch and was wondering what u think of holding Gore vs picking up Staumont or Lopez in a net sv/hld and quality start. I only have Duran right meow and Gore is lowest on my pecking order of SP. I still havn’t figured out a good balance of SP/RP in a quality start and net sv/hld.
.
I have 2 too many bench bats right now. using connor joe over Gallo and ugh do I need to use Bohm over Witt jr till he hopefully gets goin? I also have Jrod on my bench until he improves I hope.

have a good day in fantasyland. I picture all the razz writers in a magical place with bouncey castles and such

Gallo looks lost. He’s been benched 2 out of the last 4 games as well. He would be my drop. Probably best to only have 1-2 bench bats usually.

First time I’ve looked at Bohm’s stats this year. Huge drop in K% and still maintaining beastly HH%. He’s not going to maintain a 3.4% K%, but he’s not a 25+% K% guy either. I’d start Bohm. Witt is lost right now.

appreciate the info big bear and grey it is an OBP league tho so I’m probably gonna hold gallo for a bit unless u think that is a mistake. Bounce on! All right all ready and we all bounce on or was that float on? I won’t steal ur writers I have nowhere to put them!

Won’t be droppin Witt either :)

Grey, is Dane Dunning worth keeping at $5 in a keeper points league (IP/K/-R/-H/-BB/-HR). Drop would add $2 back in salary.

In a 5×5 roto QS instead of W and holds/saves as a category

We only have 10 moves for the season. I need a bench OF if Robert is going to be out until Kirilloff comes back. Profar or Wisdom? Also, would you drop any of R. Suarez, Jon Gray, or L. Patino for D. Bundy or T. Gonsolin.. I also am last in saves/holds. I could move Kittredge over to a SP spot and pickup another RP to help in that category. I’m leaning on dropping Patino and Gray for Gonsolin and a RP. Thoughts?

Happy Friday Grey the White!

For what it’s worth on Joe Ryan……..the Royals have made every SP look good so far. Paddack, Archer, Mize, Skubal.

I literally el oh el this morning at work! LoRob, India, Teoscar, Baz all on the IL. I have shares of them on just about every team but I’m still in the top 3 in the standings! And that’s after slow starts from either Tucker or Bichette. So I’m actually feeling ok at this point!

Thanks for everything! I think this season is gonna be a wild one.

Someone cut Trevor Rogers in my 10 team, redraft 5×5.

I took the flier because I skimped on pitching in the draft and will keep him firmly planted to the bench for now.

Will he get right? Short Spring Training to blame? His velocity is down, is he hiding an injury?

(98 left)
