Did you ever think that sometimes your haters offer relevant critiques that you should maybe take into consideration? Me neither, just wondering if that’s a thing. Don’t think about it too long if it doesn’t apply. It’ll make you cuckoo like Cocoa Puffs’ Sonny, the Cuckoo Bird. Speaking of which, Sonny, the Cuckoo Bird went to a rally recently with a sign that read, “You can’t be cuckoo without cuck.” I can’t tell if Sonny is woke, shook or just cuckoo. Either way, or eye-thurr if Chingy is reading, for a few weeks now people have been asking me about J.D. Davis, and I’ve mostly ignored them. You, “Yo, Grey, you hard of hearing?”  Me, “WHAT?!” J.D. is having himself a bit of a star mitzvah, but is it completely out of nowhere? Nope and nuh-uh. He had 17 HRs in only 85 Triple-A game last year and 30 HRs the year before across three levels.  It’s easy to write him off, because what business do the Mets have pulling a fast one on the Astros? Yet, here we are and they pulled it.  Davis has been getting regular playing time and with improved plate discipline (25.7% K% vs. 20% this year). I’m going cuckoo for Mets’ stuff, and I’d grab Davis for power and average. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Will Smith – Just think, if you pick up Will Smith, you can change your fantasy team name to I Am Legend.

Jose Osuna – I went to our 7-day Player Rater to find 1st basemen who had done well in the last week, and I cried one, single, solitary tear like a Native American watching you use a plastic straw. There’s not a ton 1st basemen this week to grab, so we got Jose Osuna, who I want to think is Jose Tabata and his world-reknown cougar.

Jason Kipnis – Elias Sports Bureau said recently that every rapper whoever sang, “Come with the quickness,” was actually saying ‘Come with the Kipnis.’ Often misheard, I guess.

Isan Diaz – Here’s what I said about Diaz previ-ous-lee, “Called up by the Marlins and I grabbed him everywhere. Go ahead; I’ll wait. You done? Okay, Diaz had 26 HRs and hit .305 in Triple-A this year, while chucking in a handful of steals. The Prospectonator isn’t a huge fan of his, but that does tend to dig its heels in during preseason and doesn’t know about approach changes — Diaz cut his Ks this year.” And that’s me quoting me!

Travis Demeritte – Might have too much rookie nookie right now, but what harm is that? I mean, how many Demerittes do I get for that?

Jon Berti – In one NL-Only league, I’m rocking this guy, and he’s provided some nice steals. Guess you can say I’m one of those commie-type Berti stan’ers.

Gio Urshela – I held back on listing Mike Ford, except for this mention, but we ain’t got time for bird sex and we ain’t got time for every hitter who kills the for-the-Birds pitching.

Brian Anderson – ‘Member when I used to like Garrett Cooper more than Anderson?  Ha! It’s a trick ‘member when! I still like Cooper more, but Anderson has been hotter.

Miguel Sano – It shocks me every time I see Sano owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues, but then I think how I dropped him this week because he didn’t start for one single game and then came in to pinch-hit and I submerge my head in an ice bath like I’m Nic Cage in five of out every six films he’s in.

Kyle Seager – “At least occasionally one of our sons hits.” That’s a tough-as-nails Momma Seager.

Ian Happ – You can’t sue a bedazzled mason jar, it would be a conflict of Pinterest, and you can’t find a guy who’s more forgotten after being more hyped than Happ.  Ever since Brett Lawrie became a house painter, at least.

Willy Adames – I constantly go to the Captain Willy Adames card with this guy, but I miss that show. Another show I miss is The Expanse, but that’s coming back in December. Woohoo!  It’s a nerd convention up in this blurb!  Yo, you cosplaying for Comic Con, you big ol’ nerd face!  As for Adames, um, yeah, he’s been hot.

Gavin Lux – Don’t ask if he’s getting called up. I have no idea. He’s worth stashing in some leagues, just Nicasio.

Mike Tauchman – I just gave you my Mike Tacuhman fantasy. I wrote it while eating a Flintstone vitamin and screaming, “I’m powering up!”

Bryan Reynolds – On our Player Rater, Jeff McNeil has been worth a $18.6 value player per game; Reynolds has been $15.2. Only huge difference is in Ribbies; McNeil’s got him. Damn, now I’m thinking about McRibs and I’m useless for the rest of the day.

Anthony Santander – One of the few bright spots for the O’s this year, unless you count Steve Wilkerson’s transition to high-octane reliever.

Aristides Aquino – More like Aqua-PRIMO! Oh em gee, I can’t handle it. I love him. Maybe it’s the Reds unis but when I watch Aquino, I’m reminded of 70’s baseball and the Big Red Machine. He just needs some mutton chops. There’s talk of a swing adjustment, but, even without it, he has power to spare, whether he has any average will be the pregunta. All aboard!

Willie Calhoun – Wish the Rangers would play him every single game, but wishing for more wishes is wishing for loose eyebrows.

Tanner Roark – This is a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to its local-area Hooters.

Dinelson Lamet – He was great in this last start, obviously, but this is also a Streamonator call. “I read the best place to make friends is at work so I was wondering if I put pantyhose over my metal legs, if I can have a job.”

Anthony Bass – Fun fact! Everywhere Anthony goes he wears a Bass fisherman hat. Less fun fact! He’s the M’s closer.

Scott Oberg – Mentioned this on this week’s podcast, but it makes little sense for the Rox to go back to Davis, but, upon reflection at a state park with me and my thoughts and mosquitos, it might make sense, due to contracts and the Rockies being out of it. I’m not sure, but Oberg should be the closer.

Seth Lugo – Give me all your Mets! What is going on?!  AHHH!!! Seriously, though, I’ve mentioned this before, if you just cycle through hot real-life teams in shallower leagues, you’d do moderately awesome in fantasy. Listen, Metco is near Kew Gardens and that rhymes with a few hard-ons. You can’t make that shizz up!

SELL

Joc Pederson – Remember, this is drops vs. sells. If you have a trade deadline that’s lallygagging like the last one to clap at the Slow Clap World Championship, then use our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer.  Otherwise, Pederson has been as awful in the 2nd half as you thought he’d be in the 1st half when he was actually good.

Mallex Smith – Okay, okay, OKAY! If you need steals then you must, you must increase your chances of saying, “Mallex is a bust?” But, if you don’t need SAGNOF, then I’d move on.

Domingo Santana – All the leaves are brown and the sky is Grey, I’ve been for a walk on a WINTER’S DAY! If I was in LA! *musical breakdown* Stopped into a church, and I began to pray for Sunday Santana! And it did not make him okay! This sell (drop) makes me sad, but in shallower leagues, well, Sunday Santana, I don’t think you can stay (he knows he can’t stay).

Matt Carpenter – I almost listed Daniel Murphy here, but he’s at least got Coors. Carpenter’s got Busch, a pale ale imitation. Carpenter’s also got nothing else going for him. Launch him into the sun with the anger of people arguing that Eleven on Stranger Things is now 12.

        Chasing SAGNOF – what do your darts say of these 2nd tier guys for the chance at SVs?

        My drop will be either Treinen, Stanek, and/or Chris Martin (Lugo, Bass, Oberg already rostered).

        Givens, Castillo, Alvarado, Shafer, Law, Farmer

        I think I need to do another closepocolypse dance – this has been my toughest year yet chasing SAGNOF – for the first time in years I’m not first in SVs

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          None of these guys are good…can try Shafer if you like…over Treinen I guess, I’d prolly hold

    Happy Fri-yay Grey!

    Grab Aquino and Urshela over Dahl and Mercado? 10 tm keeper

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Friday! Are they keepers? If so, no

      • CloudTown says:
        (link)

        Probably not, I’ve got Dahl at $25 and Mercado for $10.

        We keep 10 – Tildaddy, Belly, Rhysus, Ozzie, Soto, Mondesi, Conforto, HDozier?, Corbin, Beiber would be mine for next year as of today so the other slots are generally expendable for rosterbation.

        Thanks!

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, meh, not really keepers

      Grey says:

      Not Bass

  13. Big Daddy Jeats says:
    (link)

    I’ve been telling people I think Sano is the new Khrush Davis…Hopefully will hit right around the floor of .230-.235 but could hit up to .255? and have easy 40 homer power. Though I’m not exactly sure how exclusive 40 is anymore. Still… 234 ABs and 20 homers is special. Me likey

    • Big Daddy Jeats says:
      (link)

      Maybe .255 is too high

      • Norman Ginsberg says:
        (link)

        255 is way higher than necessary. To replicate Khrush, should be 247.

        • Big Daddy Jeats says:
          (link)

          Can’t tell if youre being sarcastic but yeah I realize Khrush hits .247 I think .255 is a ceiling and .235-.255 is a range similar to Khrush’s output.

          If you’re being sarcastic haha yeah he has to hit exactly .247 for three years in a row to be new Khrush

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, agreed… I should’ve held Sano, I hate that the Twins randomly bench him tho

      • Big Daddy Jeats says:
        (link)

        Agreed. It’s weird.

  14. Norman Ginsberg says:
    (link)

    Bench Bat. Sano or Semien?

    Hey, Aroldis Chapman, New York Yankees! I’m a big, big fan. You used to be one of my two favorite closers.

    Thanks. Who’s the other one?

    Tony Bass. He’s a Mariner.

    That’s a stretch, but damn it, I’m doing a bit from Ghostbusters 2 today and no one is going to stop me!

    Love me some buy sell Friday!
    I’m so glad Domingo is part of the sell. Can we put Eloy in there too?? I’m in first and I need some ballers for down the stretch. I’m looking at Brian Anderson. He plays the dodgers at home for a couple then heads to COL. Eloy for Sano or Urshella? I’m grabbing either one if the news on Cruz is bad (prayer hexagon please). Hold on Odor or drop for Kipnis or McMahon ROS?
    Recap : Domingo for Anderson or JD Davis
    Eloy for Sano or Urshella
    Odor for Kipnis or McMahon
    12 team roto

    Keeper league trade advice needed. We keep 14 players. Would me trading Harper and Snell for Yelich be a decent offer? The guy with Yelich is giving up on the year and is building for next year. I am in 2nd place and Snell won’t be doing much for me this year.

    A) How crazy is it that Ian Happ is relevant again. for some reason i want him to be successful after how bad he was last year and how meh he was in AAA prior to callup.

    B) I snagged tauchman everywhere i could this week, yankees make every bat useful!

    C) Aaron Sanchez piece done! hopefully he doesn’t let me down and waste that research, lol!

    Sir Grey,

    I hope you are doing well. I’m back from the Caribbean and I already miss Curacao.;-(

    I’m in 1st place in my keeper league (5×5 12 teams, we keep 8 forever) but I need help in my hitting cats.
    I can give up my next year 10th round pick and can pick 2 guys from this list:
    Murphy, Kingery, Senzel, Will Smith and perhaps Giolito

    I have Meija, Grandal and James McCann who I rotate in my 2 catching spots , so no Smith.;-)
    My other players that are not playing great are Votto (corner) and Sunday Santana. Also have Gardner in that team.
    I can put McMahon from 2B to 3B and Dozier in my outfield so I have options.

    Other offer is I give my 9th round pick for Conforto.

    Thanks as always Sir Grey!

    Hey Grey,
    I’ve been a bad fantasy baseballer this year. I just looked up in one of my leagues and realized I had four catchers on my roster!

    But I’m trying to make an end of season push. Can we talk about Cruz. I mean, it’s a wrist injury. I see two weeks of Cruz at the end of the season as best case scenario. And even then he’ll have a sore wrist. Right? And yes, I have a IL crunch. Should I drop him and get what I can from, say, Jay Bruce or Brian Anderson?

        Sorry. One follow up. I can’t keep Trout after this year. I’m in the thick of a title run, but am always trying to keep my team competitive for next year. I’m woefully thin on SPs and stacked on offense. Is getting Bo and either Wheeler or Miley enough of a return for Trout?

        I’m looking at Bo for next year, bumping my SPs and then inserting Renato Nunez into my util spot to “replace” Trout.

        • Grey

    Couple question regarding a potential Lux call up.

    1. Is there any benefit regarding arbitration for a club to hold a player down in the minors until september versus calling him up now.

    2. I’ve been watching Lux and it looks like if he got promoted I’d assume Seager stays at SS Muncy goes to 1b and Lux goes to second. Would you think he’d play some 2b in AAA if they were thinking of promoting him and if that was the case how much time would you think he might need?

        So confused by this usage – why is Melancon even pitching with a 4 run lead when he’s been out there like 5 out of the last like 7 nights including a back to back tonight

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

            This reminds me of when the A’s were running out Hendriks like every night and people were wondering why he was giving up a bunch of runs… then he gets rested and shuts people down again… it’s not complicated!

    Good luck with your cutline team. I’m out. I looked at the rosters of the winning teams, can’t argue but it’s not like they are scary teams. Got to draft guys in the later rounds who go off for a week like Gallo, Renfroe, get lucky on a couple late SP’s like Fiers, German ect.

    Anyways I need to replace L. Gurriel. Not much to chose from, Kipnis or Osuna can move Moose to 2B?

    Is Staton a drop, been looking at my #1 pick on the DL all season. Won’t ever draft him again.
    Drop Loureds or Staton, only 2 choices, maybe Gallen sense he’s at Colorado next?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks! It’s impossible to live up this late tho… I’m bottom third and haven’t moved… Kipnis… can lose Lourdes or Stanton…I’d lose Lourdes

      Eloy homered tonight or I’d say him for Aquino; Rauch’s hitting for power every game… so meh

        • Grey

          Aquino

          • Watts says:

            Thanks. Okay last one. Would you add Urshela over Domingo?

              Yup

    SS Story
    OF Yelich
    OF Acuna
    OF Springer
    UTIL Altuve
    UTIL Soto
    BENCH P. Alonso

    I’m in 1st overall with sizeable leads in most offensive categories except AVG. This category is fairly tight among most teams in a 10-team standard roto.

    Looking for a bat that can not only provide power numbers, but hit for average. Looking at Urshela and Aquino. Aquino reminds me of Yordan a little. Would you swap P. Alonso for either? Alonso hasn’t been hitting for a decent average for awhile and the others are hitting just as many HR’s in a HR happy year.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Alonso? No way, man

      • Shallow League Decisions says:
        (link)

        Yeah, I know, but I’m looking at this from a who’s hot and could stay hot for just the next month. I see Yordan and I would take him over Alonso any day. Aquino seems like a similar hitter who hits for power AND average. There is some FOMO here.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, but not Alonso… he just homered 4 games in a row

          • Shallow League Decisions says:
            (link)

            Is there anyone in my lineup you would swap for Aquino?

    I had a week to remember. Picked up JD and Aquino. Missed Gio for Gardner ugh …but let’s stay positive while I break my arm patting myself on the back!

    Renato has cooled off so eyeballing C Walker who gets three games in Coors and then four at home v Giants. Renato has four v Yankees and three at Boston.
    Swap or hold? Or perhaps drop Gardner for Walker?

    2b: Hiura
