In the spring of 2018, the Catholic Church summoned Father Carmen Sandiego to the Vatican to give him the job to investigate miracles, supernatural signs and apparitions.  Unfortunately, Father Carmen Sandiego, who wasn’t very good with his GPS, got lost for four days in the Steven Avery car lot in Wisconsin, then ended up in Milwaukee.  When he wandered into the parking lot of Miller Park, and Brewers fans tailgating with MGD and cheese curds, everywhere Father Carmen Sandiego turned he heard about the resurrected Jesus Aguilar, so he chose to investigate.  He found a player who had lowered his strikeout rate 8% from last year, upped his walk rate, cut his soft contact and could be a sneaky 25-homer, .275 guy.  Jesus didn’t appear to him in a vision, he was flesh and blood, like the Lenny & Squiggy cosplayers he also encountered.  However, Father Carmen Sandiego didn’t report back to the Vatican, instead he grabbed Jesus for his fantasy team.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Tucker Barnhart – He reminds me of this show I saw once in Tijuana, except the performer’s name was *ucker Barnhard.

Miguel Rojas – I always say, “Work for yourself, even if your boss is a doofus.”  By that logic, Rojas is working for himself.

John Hicks – Everywhere I look Hicks has catcher eligibility, except where I need it, in my NFBC league, any Russians out there that could hack a fix?

Greg Bird – Half of me wants to mention Bird because I know there will be at least a dozen people who ask about him.  Half of me wanted to leave him off because of those same dozen people.  Unfortunately, my two halves can’t agree to come together.  Where the hell is that magician who split me?

Mitch Moreland – You prolly heard the news today…oh, boy.  Hanley was DFA’d.  I’ve said this before, but insouciance doesn’t age well.  It happened with Manny Ramirez; it happened with Andruw Jones; Hanley Ramirez is the latest victim.  When you don’t care, eventually others stop caring.  Moreland will now be on the strong side of a 1st base platoon, and should have an increase in value.  He’s still a 22-homer, .255 guy, and that doesn’t change.

Ronald Guzman – *pays a sherpa in yaks, follows sherpa to top of Mt. Everest, blows on a vuvuzela*  That’s me signaling Guzman is a hot schmotato.  What other ‘pert goes to such effort to tell you a player is hot?

Josh Harrison – Jo-Ha has, of course, taken over the leadoff role again in Pittsburgh, and I went into earlier this week why that annoys me.  By the by, Jo-Ha sounds like someone who would hang out with Ma Anand Sheela.

Daniel Robertson – There was a Launch Angle seminar at a Best Western in Parsippany, NJ this offseason with the guest speaker, Dwayne Murphy.  If you looked in the back row, Robertson was there scribbling into his spiral notebook.

Dustin Pedroia – See what I wrote for Greg Bird, or two inches above, or the height of Pedroia.

Brandon Crawford – I almost made Crawford the lede this week, but Father Carmen Sandiego searching for Brandon Crawford is just ridiculous.

Austin Meadows – Some guys I’m heavily invested in to do well and get playing time, I have one share of Meadows, but it’s not imperative to that team that he performs.  Yet — again with some stank — YET, I really want Meadows to succeed.  Also, I gave you my Austin Meadows fantasy.  It was written surrounded by walruses.

Tyler O’Neill – Already gave you my Tyler O’Neill fantasy.  It had far too many typos to mention.

Travis Jankowski – If you want to know about Travis “Janky” Jankowski, simply search the site, a good seven of our writers have talked about him in the last week.  Beginning to think some of these people would prefer to be writing for Jankyball.com.  I can make it happen!

Gerardo Parra – This is a strictly Hitter-Tron call, like the call it makes to Pep Boys and asks them to put on a muffler so it can talk dirty.

Mac Williamson – He returns from a Gallagher on the melon, but he does have a lot of power, and could be worth owning in all leagues.  And, thankfully, he doesn’t spell his name Will.i.amson.

Aaron Hicks – Hey, it’s John Hicks’ brother from another mother and father who happens to have the same last name.  Say hello to your unrelated mother for me!

Blake Parker – Still can’t say yet it’s Parker’s job in the city of Anaheim that is not really close to Los Angeles unless you’re taking a helicopter.  Justin Anderson is still in the mix.

Jared Hughes – Ja-Hu, the Damaja, will fill-in for the injured Raisel (until Riggleman uses David Hernandez or someone else randomly).

Ryan TeperaTyler Clippard nearly died for the W the other day.  So handclap emoji great handclap emoji for handclap emoji him, but handclap emoji he handclap emoji still handclap emoji looked handclap emoji awful.  Tepera may be the next to be battered.  Panko, snitches!

Nate Jones – As soon as I say Jones is the de facto closer for the White Sox, I Google if ‘de facto’ means what I think it does.

Alex Reyes – A bit surprised that he’s not owned yet in 50% of leagues, have that many people moved onto fantasy football already.  (clickbait!)

Wade LeBlanc – Second week in a row the Stream-o-Nator has picked LeBlanc as a streamer.  I think the lonely robot thinks suggesting LeBlanc will get it a shot at hanging out at Central Perk.

Daniel Mengden – Rudy grabbed Mengden this week in one league, I believe for Mengden’s streaming possibilities.  The Stream-o-Nator agrees, as it also agrees with standing in extra long lines at grocery stores so it can chitchat.

SELL

Jean Segura – This sell hurts me soul, Lupe Fiasco, because I own Segura, but, according to our Fantasy Baseball Buy/Sell Tool, he’s a sell.  Sigh.  Why can’t I have anything nice, which is also what I want it to say on my tombstone.  Kidding, of course.  On my tombstone, I want it to read, “I told you I was sick.”  Let’s see why the Buysellatops, the Fantasy Baseball dinosaur, maybe saying to sell him.  His average will come down, he’s hitting for no power, not really blazing speed on the base paths, the M’s are depleted and he’s a 11/24/.275 guy in the big picture.  I would look at fair trades on the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer, but I would not sell Segura for a free entry into a shrimp tail tossing contest vs. a Benihana chef.

Hey Grey – interested in grabbing Vlad in the one league I don’t have him, a 12 team keep forever. The wrinkle is that I’m in first (very close battle) and want to bring home the crown this year (flags fly forever!)

My best pitcher is Morton ($10) (Ray on DL was my ace). I have lots of intriguing guys like Mikolas, Taillon, Clevinger, Wacha, Caleb Smith, Hendricks, Mengden (Hill Ryu on DL), but no clear aces besides what Morton is doing right now.

For a $5 Vlad (keep for $8), he’d want my Morton and a smaller piece (Peraza Villar). None of my guys are keepers for me, but Morton in particular is a big piece of my 1st place run right now.

Too costly for Vlad, or go for Vlad?

Hey Grey,

Just had the random thought that what Tampa Bay is doing might work like a dream if they had a better pitching option than Romo. Could you imagiine Josh Hader starting every game for them, striking out the top of the order then turning it over to another guy? Hader might luck into a 30-game record by the end of the season if TB got some runs in the first inning or two. But as a Hader owner, I’m glad they don’t have Hader!

Oh, and I just picked up Richard Rodriguez after seeing that video of Felipe Vasquez clutching his forearm. Figure even if RR doesn’t get the closing gig his ratios won’t kill me while I speculate. Can’t say the same for Feliz. Decent move…?

10 team 5×5, split into halves for scoring. I’m out for this half already, so looking for post ASB.

Can you rank by who will be better ROS/post ASB? We only get one move (non-injury) a week, so I have to think long-term, a bad move = 2 weeks of moves used.

On my squad
J Gray, Taillon, Gausman

Available
Stripling, Musgrove, Odorizzi, Lyles, C Smith, Hellickson, Weaver

Anyone not up now that you think will have a big impact in the second half?

Britton and MadBum coming off DL in the next week or so. Who is my DL stash between Molina, DeJong, Thames. Thinking Thames but he burned me down the stretch last year. Don’t trust Gattis but he is a catcher after all. Molina safer? My team is below if that helps inform the suggestion:

C- Gattis
CI – Freeman, Eugenio, Santana
MI – Dee, Semien, Bregman
LF- Rosario, CF – Trout RF – Mazara
OF – DeShizz, Jo Ma

Hey Grey, hope you’re enjoying Memorial Day weekend. Joe Musgrove and Ross stripling are available in my league. It’s hard to get super excited about musgrove after just one start, but stripling has gorgeous periphs.

I noticed that Jean Segura is rated 51 on the ROS projections for Yahoo 12-team which leaves 50 possible hitter trade candidates that are upgrades and only the following have upside on speed – Betts, Turner, Acuna, Marte, Merrifield or Gordon. Machado, Turner, and Baez are the only SS eligible upgrades.

In other words, I think it would be hard to do better?

Hey what’s up Mr Grey few questions for you sir. My league is 10 person keeper league (5 keepers) with strict roster limits (2 first basemen, 2 second basemen, 2 shortstops, 2 third basemen, 6 outfielders, 6 starring pitchers (limited to ten starts a week) and 3 relief pitchers). My current roster is:

C – Contreras, Barnhart
1b – belt, mancini, miggy (dl)
2b – Jose ramirez, cozart
3b – moustakas, healy
Ss – lindor, story
Of – Hoskins, bellinger, acuna, Soto, deshields, Adam Jones

Sp- Lester, Alex wood, Mikolas, Severino, Nola, Pivetta (ray on dl)
Rp – Felipe Vasquez, Edwin diaZ, Kimbrel

1. Drop Vasquez for chad green, joe kelly or devenski? Or hold? Green has like 40 more points than him right now..

2. When ray comes back from dl who’s the drop for sp Lester, wood or Pivetta?

3. For backup 2b keep cozart? Or drop for Peraza, Castro or Profar? (I like cozart only because he has 2b,ss and 3b eligibility)

4. Pick up Jesus Aguilar and drop mancini or hold?

5. Drop deshields for Aaron hicks or hold?

6. Drop Healy for Andujar or hold?

Thanks Grey! And thanks for “the expanse” tip loving it so far

S+H league. What do I do with Andrew Miller? Drafted this chump in the tenth round. But there are lots of MR out there getting K’s and holds. Does he have trade value in a 12t mixed? Drop him? or hold. Same thing with David Robertson although I have already decided to drop his ass.

Was watching Expanse mid season 2 last night. I think I actually teared up at one point.

All the Reyes news has me drooling. 0.00 ERA, insane k:BB ratio, and a couple days ago the team announced there’d be no innings limit. It’s gotten to the point where I have to wonder what the bad news is (hush yo mouf!) because I swear I’ve been through this before pinking up & holiding a hurt player only to be disaooojnted.

Speaking of disappointment, when will Vlad the Mini Impaler be up?!? How much more does he need to do to get the call? Kid’s straight crushing it – and usually teams like selling jerseys last I checked. Any rumors of a call-up? He too is taking valuable bench space for me.

To keep as a shortstop, who would you rather Gyorko or Tim Anderson? In my league a player needs 5 starts at a position to be eligible. So Gyorko should have shortstop eligibility soon. Also if you say Gyorko then is Tim Anderson droppable. I will have to drop 1 when Britton gets back.

Michael Conforto is right at the 50% cutoff and the bat is starting to come around – would you consider him a better buy than Desmond?

Given the impending playing time issues, would you dump Meadows for Mac W?

Did I or did I not tell you Andrew Heaney would break out this year? Be fair. I commented in the preseason here he would be this year’s Alex Wood

@Willy Mo: Can you or can you not ever make a comment that isn’t flashing your nutsack or throwing shade? Be fair. You’ve sounded like an asshole since the preseason.

@nick the smooth dick: this is bullshit. Grey is the one who sucks his own dick about every right call he makes. I never see you calling him out for tooting his own horn.

Not one person on this site touted heaney but me.

@Willy Mo: grey makes fun of his own “bad” calls all the time.
rutledge, b.miller, delino (numerous years), shark (this year particularly). heaney was well liked around here for years for his upside, he just was always hurt.

– guess you found yourself one of those unfalsifiable situations where you just can’t be wrong. if heaney was good you’d show up and show yr ass, if he got hurt and sucked, “well of course, he’s always hurt”. should start a religion with this stuff, it’s neat being unfalsifiable.

a.meyer was pretty good last year too when healthy. get an early start on him too before others “call it”

@I got $100 for groceries, $1400 for liquor and $6,000 for you to bail a couple of shit puppets out of jail: odor (which wasn’t even a bad call it was babip luck, same as most of above) last year was a BIG one (as far as how much over ADP grey was on odor). the fangraphs (or whoever it was) guys ripping on him for it, odor went well over their projected HR’s (and probably over on the steals as well).

-now THIS year odor has been just bad. HR’s left the building along with everything else. steals too. babip or not his value is garbage. and he never had an OBP to rely on.

Should I offer E. Suarez, Votto, and Mazara. For Arenado, and Torres? If that’s not good enough I could offer instead of Mazara, I could offer Myers.
C: Contreras
1b: Votto
2b: adsrubel
3b: Suarez
Ss: Tim Anderson
Of: Yelich
Of: Marte
Of: Hoskins
Ut: Mazara
Bench: Myers, Murphy, Lamb, Gyorko…
When Murphy gets back I’ll play adsrubel at shortstop if Anderson doesn’t start getting Runs batted in. Lamb is for if Suarez gets injured, I won’t be able to use adsrubel there because Tim Anderson isn’t getting rib. I may hold and hope he hits in a better spot.
I don’t need any pitching at all. The guy with Arenado has no outfield. Hicks, Khris Davis, bellinger, O’Neal, markakis are his options. He has Arenado and Freeman, what’s a good offer for one of them. I’d like to maybe get one of them with his gleyber Torres too. Cam you see a trade offer I might send with hopes of him accepting?

IF both are in the Pirates rotation going forward, do you prefer Musgrove or Kingham? Musgrove seems to be a lock for playing time and I’m guessing the Pirates find a way to get Kingham back in there, too.

Love every write up! My partner kwoox and I live and die by your word. Do we drop colome for Musgrove? Our closers were him morrow and Britton.

Standard, season-long roto (R, RBI, HR, SB, AVG).

Two different trades…do or hold:

1) My Judge for Betts

2) My Kershaw for Cole

I was 100% certain you would like Cole more than Kershaw, especially since you’ve been really high on Cole.

Do you have concerns about Kershaw’s loss in velo and that bicep tendon? I guess that’s why I tough you would take Cole over Kersh.
