From the journal of Jim Morrison, he wrote about an encounter he had with lizard wearing a crown of thorns that he alternated calling, Jesus Luzardo and The Luzard King. Here, I wish to transcribe Jim’s musings, “Today, I rode with a large Native American man to a Wawa to get some beej ferky (sic). The Native American man told me about the many lives he had lived and how he never trusted rookie pitchers. He recounted a story about how he traded all his pitchers for Chris Paddack, due to a great April in 2019.  This was confusing to me, since this was 1970, but this wise Native American knew more in his head, which he covered in an Indians baseball club hat, than I’d ever know. Was this Lou Boudreau? Before we got to the Wawa, which was only three minutes away by automobile, so not sure why it was taking so long — were we lost? — the Native American man pulled over and picked up a pitchman for an insurance company which was an animated lizard.  This was The Luzard King. An obvious lizard, which made it weird when it kept saying it was a gecko.  The Luzard King said it had a shoulder issue early in the preseason of the 2019 season, which I had a premonition would be 38 years after my death. Also, oddly enough, I’m being fed a quote from the future from Prospect Mike about Jesus Luzardo.  He will say, ‘Luzardo’s stock just continues to rise. He’s in the rarified air of ‘best pitching prospects’ now. The lefty threw 109 innings across three leagues in 2018 and posted a 129/30 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Everything is plus or better – the heater, the curve, the change, the control. He’s the total package, like the package I filled with anthrax and sent to Grey.’ Who is this Grey he speaks of? Who is Prospect Mike? Was it the peyote talking or was it something more mysterious?”  And that’s me quoting Jim Morrison quoting Prospect Mike!  Don’t think Luzardo is going to be up before the All-Star Break, but now is the time to stash him. He could be a top arm in the 2nd half, or at least a solid Middler like early Yonny.  Call him Once Uponny.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

James McCann – Immanuel Kant argued that space, time and causation were ‘things-in-themselves’ which just ‘exist.’ He also used to say, “Put in McCann!” about everything.

Bobby Bradley – Just gave you my Bobby Bradley fantasy.  It was written while showing a studio audience my Roger Rabbit.

Garrett Cooper – True or false:  Cooper once injured himself while saying, “I’m going to Wichita,” during a karaoke session of Seven Nation Army.

Brandon Dixon – Over the last 30 days, Bra-Dix has six homers, two steals and has cemented himself in the cleanup spot in the Tigers’ order.  “We can try a jackhammer, but I can’t promise anything.”  That’s someone looking at Bra-Dix’s cementing of himself.

Dominic Smith – This guy is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. He seems totally untalented, but having a ton of fun.  You have a Fun category in your league?  Yes?  No?  Okay, well, he’s also been hot.

Eric Sogard – When you think about how you should’ve drafted Sogard instead of Vlad Jr., I put a finger on your brain like I’m Dianne Wiest in Bullets Over Broadway.

Keston Hiura – Here’s what I said this morning, “In 74 combined games this year:  Hiura has 24/8/.315, roughly a pace of 48/15/.300.  Hahahahahaha–Breathe, Grey!  Breathe!  Seriously, grab him.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Danny Santana – Ya know what’s funny to me?  “Farts?”  Yes, but also how I still call this guy Dannys Antana, when the reason for that is so long ago, it’s no longer relevant.  It would be like if I ever came across Chris Young in person and called him Krispie.

Cavan Biggio – Surprised there’s no one rushing out to add Biggio.  Sure, he hasn’t been amazing, but he hasn’t been bad and I would’ve thought his name factor alone would’ve had him owned everywhere.  As surprising as the Game of Thrones finale?  Yes, but less disappointing.

Kevin Newman – On our 7-day Player Rater, Newman is a top 50 hitter.  Hello, Newman!

Scooter Gennett – He should be back with the Reds soon, then shipped off to whichever team gives the Reds absolutely anything.  “You’re willing to give us a bench coach for Scooter? Hmm, what kind of signs can he steal?”

Luis Urias – If Luis isn’t called up soon, I will put the buy for Urias on ice — Ur-ice?  Damn, that’s cold! — like I put Mountcastle on ice.

Garrett Hampson – Honestly, I don’t care what Hampson or any non-Dahl, non-Chazz Noir or non-Arenado Rockies player can do. They’re in Coors and if they’re playing, they’re okay by me.  Or I guess, Buy me.

J.P. Crawford – The three hottest players in the major leagues over the last week:  LeMahieu, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Crawford, who’s been Just Peachy, aptly.

Oscar Mercado – Already gave you my Oscar Mercado fantasy.  It hears Uranus and giggles.

Ramon Laureano – Hasn’t been exactly all I hoped for when I called him a sleeper in the preseason, but he has been far from a disappointment, outside of April.  He’s currently around the 30th best outfielder.  Ya know, about that of Tommy Pham, Gallo, Bryce Harper (!) and Buxton.  Sounds crazy, but you’d be surprised at how much weight steals carry for fantasy value right now.  Domingo Santana is a top 10 outfielder.  Check out the Player Rater.  Be it; live it; breathe it, not in that order.  Prolly go “breathe it” 1st.

Brendan McKay – Will be called up to start on Saturday, and already gave you my Brendan McKay fantasy.  The one difference between then and now…Well, there’s a few differences, the time, the date–Okay, differences for fantasy are he’s starting; I thought he might be a Middler. I also didn’t mention much about his bat. I’d be shocked if he’s more than a TTO, i.e., occasional homer, walk and strikeout.  As an arm, he’s worth owning everywhere. This is also a Streamonator call.  Like the call it makes to a junkyard to see if anyone’s seen its sister.

Tyler Skaggs – This is also a Streamonator call.  “She went by the name ‘Speak & Spell.’ I miss our conversations.”

Liam Hendriks – Have no faith whatsoever in Blake Treinen being usable the rest of the year. Been saying this for about a week now.  Hendriks could be a top 10 (5?) closer for the rest of the year (month?).  That’s how one plants a flag (on a hedge?).

Carlos Martinez – Unlike Hendriks, I don’t have a ton of faith in C-Mart.  Just don’t think it’s very S-Mart of the Cardinals to use him as a closer the rest of the year.  Don’t they ever want him to start again?  Maybe not, but I have my doubts.  There’s no great arm behind him, but I guess Ron Gant’s son could step in.  I’m also stashing Tyler Webb, which seems more like what Pookie from New Jack City would describe as a pipe dream.

Ian Kennedy –  More like top ten closer, Ian Kennedy!  Have you seen any film on him?  Za-proof’s in the Zapruder!

SELL

DJ LeMahieu – Not sure if everyone heard my podcast story a few weeks ago about going to dinner with The Miz.  Something I didn’t mention during that because it seemed irrelevant at the time, and, now that I think about it, it’s irrelevant now too, but DJ Darude was also at that dinner.  I didn’t know him at the time, and don’t really still, but, up until LeMahieu, he was the only DJ I even tangentially knew. The whole DJ culture thing passed me by.  Now all I can think when I see a DJ billboard announcing some residence at a Vegas hotel is, “Why does every DJ photo look like an in memoriam?”  Any hoo!  LeMahieu has been the best hitter over the last month, is a top 15 player for all of fantasy on the year and provides no speed and usually no power.  Is this a joke?  Where’s DJ LeMahieu’s in memoriam photo?  Right here!  There’s no way he keeps this up.  I’d be looking at the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer to see what I can get for LeMahieu.  I wouldn’t trade him for a massage at a place called Sal’s Chicken & Dry Rubs, but I would explore offers.

    Any consideration for Chris Taylor in today’s Buy column? Dood’s been getting slams and legs lately, had a great 2017 despite being lackluster (but usable) in 2018. Could be a renaissance? Or is he just a baked schmotato?

    Taylor over LaStella ROS?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Not really, but he’s been hot

      I’d go La Stella

      • Grey

        Though Taylor in Coors is better (anyone in Coors is better)

        • pinkman says:

          True, must be something in the underlying numbers that my layman brain can’t grasp. But that Coors bump is always nice.

    Hey Grey… for a long term keeper league which side do you like…
    Yonny Chirinos and Domingo German
    Or
    Manaea, Gausman, Dickerson

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Neither? Yonny

      • Berea Bombers says:
        (link)

        Hahahahahaha! Fair enough…

        It’s a super deep league with tons of blacklisted players so our rosters look more like real MLB teams as opposed to fantasy baseball rosters.

        Basically looking at who would be the best 4th and 5th SP

    What’s up Grey?

    Freddie gibbs’ new album Bandana is very good.

    Also don’t know if you saw but SCOTUS overturned Curtis Flowers conviction. I’m pretty sure it was you who recommended In the Dark pod last year or the year before?

    12 team league w/ QS. We streaming Velasquez tonight against Miami? I’m feeling dangerous.

      Grey says:

      I like Andy and Barry Gibbs so will check out

      Yeah, awesome news for Flowers, but Doug Evans is still the decision maker on whether to retry him, so that’s crazy

  12. James says:

    Good time to buy low on Buehler?

    Sell high on verlander?

    Hold on Bauer?

    Hold Carlos Santana in points leagues? -1 for k’s

    Drop Framber or does he start again after all star break?

    • James says:
      (link)

      Also do we still love judge even though everyone hits hr now? I thought of moving him for pitching help but I do have him as a 28th round keeper. Trying to win this year and I have 5 of the top 20 scoring position players in my league.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Buehler will be skipped — Justin won’t — Hold Bauer — Not sure why you wouldn’t hold Santana — lose Framber

        @Grey: would be more just to roster heading into asb. kelly is vs col and mcckay (assuming he stays up) looks like he will be vs nyy. lamet is due to come off the dl.

    10 team, standard H2H categories, 5 player keeper league.

    Really like Newman, but have Segura and DeJong and a lot of MI options (Hiura/Senzel/Chavis/LaStella), I’m so weak in OF that I’ve played Senzel there more. Take Newman and drop one of my existing SS?

      Can lose Chavis, but I don’t mind him (or anyone) in London

    Grey,

    Two Questions:

    1) If Noe Ramirez is not a starter then what is he doing starting tonight vs OAK?
    2) I am looking to trade Garrett Hampson. I was offered either minor leaguer SP Tim Cate from WAS or Logan Gilbert SP from Seattle. Who should I take?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. opener

      2. hold

      • Scott Kimmel says:
        (link)

        Hampson is expendable. I have Altuve, Jose Ramirez, and David Fletcher.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      2. Gilbert

      • Scott Kimmel says:
        (link)

        what are you thoughts of Jake McCarthy and Hampson for Brice Turang and Logan Gilbert

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I think Brice is barely as good as Hampson in 4 years

          • Scott Kimmel says:
            (link)

            so he will be just like Hampson in four years or slightly worse than Hampson

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Prolly worse, but maybe same

              • Scott Kimmel says:
                (link)

                ok thanks I made the deal

    Great buy/sell.

    Geovanny Gallegos’ stats (if only stats could speak and emote) would scream that you are raycess against Mexicans. They don’t and can’t so you’re okay.

    36 IP
    23 H
    10 runs, all earned
    6 BB
    51 K
    2.50 ERA, 0.806 WHIP
    2.37 FIP (I know you only care about x-FIP)
    .264 BABIP against
    83% LOB

    His stats over the last 30, 14 and 7 are all better than his seasonal average because of a blow up earlier. Please quote me if he becomes the closer this year.

        I mean if hes out for over a month how much value does he have left? I wouldnt keep him nexr year over my other 5 guys. I offered Tim Anderson and minter for Kimbrel and Carlos Martinez. Got rejected. I offered it to a guy with no keepers. Im also leading in steals by 22 since i also have Mondesi and Yelich. Im 2nd to last in saves but have Chapman, pagan, Workmen, and Minter at this point. Thinking in adding Watson instead.
        I have 9 starters and a great batting lineup with depth. So i dont need to drop any releivers.

    Oh dear, LeMahieu has taken my squad to the fringes of relevance this year—a hard disagree. Positional flexibility, hitting 1st with Lurch hitting second, and a rabbit ball flying all over the place. I’ll never let him go.

    The more important question is how you feel about post-Peter Gabriel Genesis. The 18-month stretch that saw the release of Duke (March 1980), Face Value (Feb. 1981), and Abacab (Sep. 1981) was one of the happiest musical times of my life. Pop-Prog at its finest, and the two best later Genesis albums. Throw in a great 1980 Peter Gabriel album and a full head of hair for me, and I’ll show you happiness.

    I like Collins up to about 1990.

    So I’m about to trade DJ – the other day I was offered Scooter and Glasnow, but he’d also be willing to do Kingery and Glasnow. Which guy would you rather take between Kingery and Scooter? To be honest, it’s not likely to impact this year since I’m way down, but there’s a slight chance I would be able to keep the guys I get heading into next year.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      If it’s not impacting this year and you can’t keep next year, what you doing it for? I worry we see nothing of Glasnow this year

      • Milarky says:
        (link)

        The main reason I’m doing it is for more keeper choices at the end of the year,. We keep four hitters and two pitchers. I suspect there’s no chance I’d keep DJ, but I thought there could be a puncher’s chance I’d keep Scooter or Glasnow. Right now my keeper-worthy pitchers are Kluber, Severino and Buehler.

        • Grey

    No “buy” recommendation for Maikel Franco?

    Yeah, I get it. But after talking myself out of him two days ago, he hit two more HR. So, last night, in a momentum of fanboy hysteria, I bought a share.

    Why do you not care for our boy Maikel? Yeah, his track record sucks. But his April sure was great!!!

    In a 10tm keeper league, keep 5 forever….I was offered Vlad Jr for Max Muncy and a draft pick. I’m in 4th place, squarely in the playoff hunt and Muncy has been awesome but this seems like a no brainer, right? My keepers would then be:

    Trout, T. Turner, Acuna, Yelich, Vlad. With Pete Alonso as a potential keeper as well.

    Do we think Vladdys second half projections and Muncys are equal enough where I don’t shoot my self production wise?

    Is Paddack the type of SP in a dynasty that I should be all in on? He is on the trading block & I am considering offering Greinke, Morton, & Sixto for Paddack & Drew Waters. He wants SP help & knows Paddack will be shut down & those two could not be higher value & are getting very old.
    On top of that I will need to cut down my keepers to 25 players & this will help me out by giving 3 for 2.
    If he would accept seems like a good swap for me?

    who the heck do i drop to get Hiura out of my NA position?

    Michael Chavis, Matt Carpenter, Scott Kingery (then I won’t have a SS), Hunter Renfroe, Ramon Laureano, Wil Myers, Brendan Rodgers, Wil Myers, Corey Seager

    14 team 5×5 OBP League.

    I know the obvious answer is Rodgers, but he will be eligible for me as a 16th round keeper for next season, so I’m hesitant to give up on him.

    ROS Player Rater STILL shows love for Chris Archer, but the Pirates making him keep throwing that slider appears to have ruined his season(career)? Drop him to add Ian Kennedy in a 12 h2h points league where bonuses for W’s and saves is critical? Or does his last start vs. Padres give you any feeling he can rebound this season?

      not only that, those NYY/BOS series’ are the epitome of why pitchers should have the shot clock enforced.. they just stare, and stare, then stare some more. it’s not cool. it’s not entertaining. it doesn’t help the pitchers (most for sure), it’s not “competitive”. it isn’t cool to have to listen to whoever the F announcers talk a lot about nothing an extra 40 or more seconds per pitch. this WOULD’VE been cool had this shite occurred for decades during the vin scully era had the LAD games been like this, but alas, in the NL homie(s) don’t play that shit.

    Happy Friday Grey,
    Have Mondesi projected to return next week. So based on my morning question, and yours and coolwhips response (https://razzball.com/kevin-newman-fantasy/#comment-2902753), droped C Taylor for Hiura.

    So assume I should drop Senzel to make room for Mondesi?

    Do you thing Suarez will turn it around? As thought about dropping him instead.

    From your earlier comment. (me being a prog rock head) Genesis went from prog with Gabriel, transitioning to mainstream pop rock by the late 80s with Collins. Like both eras until We Can’t Dance and beyond.

    Have a great weekend.

    It’s a little known fact that in his most impressive and influential work, A Critique of Your Season, Immanuel Kant’s metaphysical construct of the Dinger an Sich comprises the ontological basis of his fundamental construct of reality, which explains both Ketel Marte’s 20 HRs in the first half of the season this year and why Giancarlo is deliberately trying to submarine my fantasy team. And oh yeah, Kant invented the submarine, 300 years after Da Vinci, because if time and space are just constructs of how we apprehend the world, you can do that.
    Look, if you are going to lead with Kant, you have to expect at least one obscure philosophical comment.

    Two questions.

    A. With the way Harper is hitting, would you consider trading him for Chris Sale

    B. Would you trade Moncada for Liam Hendricks if desperate for saves?

    Team is Yadi, Hoskins, Villar, Muncy, Chris, Harper, Eloy, Desmond, Ohtani, Moncada, Betts, Robles, Pence, Mondesi and Story

    Pitchers are Verlander, Giolito, Buehler, Lynn, Clevinger, Yonny, Fried, Raisel, Hand, Romo, Lorenzen and Neris

    Want to try and trade for a buy (kinda) low SP, since deGrom, Bauer, Flaherty, Wheeler, Matz, Gallen, Fried, Lucchesi, Hendricks, Darvish, (and just got McKay) cannot seem to win my enough pitching categories in a 5×5 to get me past 9th in a 14 team ESPN league. My hitting seems pretty good:

    1B C Walker
    2B Muncy
    3B JoRam (traded Riley/Chavis for him a couple weeks ago)
    SS Kingery
    MI Hampson
    CI Yandy
    OF Bryant
    OF Acuna
    OF Dahl
    OF Domingo
    OF Cooper
    UTIL Yordan
    BN McKay
    BN Urias
    BN Mondesi
    IL Stanton

    Im 6 games out of a playoff spot with 8 weeks to go(including this one). Do you think my arms are good enough to bounce back and take me into contention? Or should i sell a bat or two for a buy low like Snell or Marquez, and if so, who is a fair offer for either? Ive won this league the last two years, so dudes are extra shy about trading with me. Ive had to overpay (their perception) on a couple trades the last two years to get deals done

    • Grey

      Your arms sound good enough to me, more than good… But if you can buy Snell low, sure, why not — Maybe Yordan?

    10 team QS and SV+H keeper
    1st place by 8.5 games

    Long story, but Altuve, Harper and Marquez were dropped. We have $100 FAAB for rolling waivers, and I haven’t used any yet. Trying to figure out my priority for claims, since I obviously can’t get all.

    C – Molina
    1B – Gallo
    2B – Murphy
    3B – Arenado
    SS – Machado
    CI – Chapman
    MI – Kingery

    Having a rough time choosing which ONE player for my Utility spot.

    1. Seoul Train
    2. Willie Calhoun
    These guys get to be the first to face off against Rays rookie Brendan McKay. If Calhoun plays I could talk myself into him since he has such an exciting bat.

    3. Jason Kipnis vs Cashner in Baltimore.
    Streaming the Kipper this week/he has been riding a hit bat and facing Baltimore is enticing, though Cashner has been surprisingly good at suppressing their usual suck factor.

    4. Cavan Biggio at home be Homer Bailey. Of the four I feel the man named for deteriorating New Orleans mansion restaurant has the best upside. Just have a hunch that slam and BB are in the cards.

    Leaning Biggio, anyone think I should start one of the other three instead.

    Trade Edwin Diaz who can’t be kept for Logan Allan and Amir Garrett both who can be kept for cheap? NL only and I’m behind in ks and ratios so I’m trying to get some SP help.

    It sounds like it’s a low offer for Diaz but the other team also has wheeler. I may ask for wheeler and allan but assume my first offer is on the table.

    One stat line that has me kinda of concerned is Conforto’s BB% since coming back from the concussion. The rate has been cut in half since coming back-all the other stat lines are the same. My H2H league includes Walks,OBP and Slugging so his bat can be really useful when he is soaking in the walks. Hopefully it’s a small sample size thing and not a trend.

    Treinen coming back this week. I have Diaz (don’t trust), Jansen and Hand as my closers and picked up Liam recently thinking Treinen will be out longer and as insurance.

    somebody just dropped meadows, obviously this is easy dannys antana drop for now, but when guys get healthy do i drop joc or conforto (could be both when rosario is back i guess) for meadows here? i am already a very strong steals team. i am top of the league in almost all hitting stats excepting AVG (4th).
