Reading from the Book of Revelations in the 2021 Razzball Draft Guide, “When the ocean’s water rises–”
Job, “Why ocean’s water? Isn’t just ‘water rises’ enough?”
“I’m reading, not writing, and, when I’m done, I will smite you so hard you’ll wish you never corrected God about His word.”
Job stops chewing gum for a moment to say, “Heard.”
Continuing, “…When the ocean’s water rises in Miami, there will be two guys able to walk to work, Jesus Aguilar and Jesus Sanchez.”

There’s been a few hitters flat-out raking in the minors, and Jesus Sanchez is one of the top ones. In 33 games in Triple-A, he hit nine homers and .349. He’s not just a power hitter, though he is that with 70-grade power, he’s begun to hit for contact this year. Going into this year, as Prospect Itch said, “Sanchez swings at everything and always has. A corner outfielder with ideal size and crazy bat speed from the left side, he’ll get a lot of chances and have a long time to figure out pitch selection. More chances than Grey if I ever bumped into him.” What the heck, man? Pitch selection can come at any time, and Sanchez only just turned 23. He might’ve found his swing, and when to, uh, swing. Grab him in all leagues. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Trevor Rogers – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 1.98. I should ask my Marlins’ connect if Rogers is going to throw more than 130 IP this year. Meh, what fun is that! We like speculation!

Paul Goldschmidt – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and a slam (9) and legs (5), hitting .252. Au shizz!

Tyler Glasnow – Diagnosed with a partial tear of his UCL. Now he’ll have to decide if he wants to have Tommy John surgery this week or in six months after trying to not have the surgery for six months and being told by everyone, “Have the surgery.” Injury victory laps are the worst, so I won’t mention how I told you a month ago to sell him because he never stays healthy. Yesterday, Glasnow was blaming MLB for the crackdown on sticky substances, because he couldn’t grip the ball and it made him stress his UCL. It is a bit like MLB said you could use your book for an exam, then decided you couldn’t halfway through the test. On the other hand that is dripping with wacky tacky, he’s never stayed healthy before. Sticky or no sticky. More on this later in the roundup.

Shane McClanahan – 5 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.42. If you started him, you have larger pants grapes than I, but I do still have McClanahanhanhanhanhan on a team or two, and am encouraged.

Nick Madrigal – Had season-ending surgery on his hamstring. The violinists play a thousand tiny hamstrings for your loss, Madrigal.

Max Scherzer – Hit the IL with groin inflammation. He inflammed his groin when he was watching a movie late at night, and still had some remnants of Spider Tack on his hand.

Stephen Strasburg – Saw a specialist for nerve irritation. The specialist was bald, and had two assistants, one with a bowl haircut and one with curly hair, and the specialist kept saying, “The noive!”

Patrick Corbin – 8 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 5.60. The only thing sticky with Corbin is his underwear from pitching well! I mean, from the humidity. What are you people thinking? Gross! Streamonator loved this start, and his next, and I’d start him.

Yan Gomes – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 6th homer, a grand slam. Gomes is as easy as remembering Guron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior.

Tucker Davidson – 2 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.60, and left with forearm tightness. Glad he was able to ruin all my fantasy teams prior to leaving for 12-14 months. Now I have jaw tightness from grinding my gnashers.

Hunter Renfroe – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, hitting .258. Not exactly a fantasy #1 outfielder, but hasn’t been much worse than a number three outfielder, and roughly around 175th overall on the Player Rater.

Rafael Devers – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 16th homer, hitting .283. I have Devers on a few teams and here’s how it feels:  Devers is out, day-to-day with a leg injury, misses a game or two, then he comes back and picks up right where he left off.

Xander Bogaerts – 1-for-4 and his 13th homer, hitting .319. Another season, and XBogs is putting up video game numbers once again.

Alex Verdugo – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 9th homer, hitting .291. Still annoyed I wasn’t fast enough to draft Verdugo in every league. Don’t worry, I just did two lines of coke to avoid that ever happening again.

Luis Severino – Suffered a Grade 2 groin strain, as he was working his way back from reconstructive elbow surgery. Doctors will now put his other elbow tendon in his groin so he can point at people in the bathroom. My guess is this delays him about four to six weeks.

Chris Gittens – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer. The one poor sap whose fantasy team is named “Smitten Gittens” did a small Tiger Woods fist pump.

Gary Sanchez – 2-for-5 and his 9th homer, hitting .225. Not to imitate a Yankees fan too much by never being happy with Gary, but it would be nicer if he hit twenty points lower with seven more homers.

Bo Bichette – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 14th homer, hitting .284. Whoa, Bo, bro.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – 6 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners (4 BBs), 3 Ks, ERA at 3.43. Any time a pitcher throws a walk, here’s me: Pulls out magnifying glass, runs it along spin rates, unknowingly picks up sun with magnifier and burns hole in computer screen.

Lance McCullers – 4 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.89, as he was activated from the IL, as Jake Odorizzi piggy-backed him (4 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 5.68). Dusty Baker says he has given some consideration to a six-man rotation now. Dusty also is considering mint-flavored toothpicks, so bated breath for both announcements.

Carlos Correa – 2-for-3 and his 12th homer. Guess when he hit it? Yup, the 9th inning. It’s uncanny.

Jose Altuve – 2-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 13th homer, a walk-off grand slam. “Officially the biggest midget in the game!” That’s Lady Sovereign about Jose Altuve.

Kyle Gibson – 6 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.09. You can hear Podcaster Geoff and I discuss Gibson on this week’s podcast, as we talk about his invariable trade deadline move, and 5+ ERA on his team, when he Suppans them, and famous Suppans in history, including Andrew Cashner.

Bobby Bradley – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer in like five games. Hot schmotato alert!

Steven Duggar – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer. Duggar hit that one for his 20 kids.

Mike Yastrzemski – 2-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 7th homer, as the Giants made a huge comeback, because they never lose and the Diamondbacks never win, though if you look at both teams, you’re like, “Meh, they look equally good/bad.”

Frankie Montas – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 4.21. Was about to say I wouldn’t start a lot of the A’s pitchers in away games, but would start them all at home, and I just looked at their splits, and they’re much better in road games. Meh, doesn’t change my mind, but is “not haha” funny.

Sean Murphy – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 8th homer, and 2nd homer in two games, and 2nd time I’m telling you Murphy’s been hitting the ball hard for a few games.

Jared Walsh – 1-for-4 and his 15th homer, hitting .291. And each of my fantasy teams is like a milk carton with this Walsh kid missing.

J.P. Crawford – 3-for-5, 2 runs and his 4th homer, as he hits leadoff. Jake Fraley (1-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI) hitting 2nd; Ty France (3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer) hitting third, and suddenly the M’s lineup doesn’t look that bad.

Chris Flexen – 8 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 4.12. Quite brucely, if the Streamonator recommended Flexen, I prolly still wouldn’t start him.

Yu Darvish – 5 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 2.57. Is there anything more brutal than a guy giving up the tying or lead-losing run on his final pitch of the game? We should have a glossary term for that. Please suggest in the comments.

Fernando Tatis Jr. – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 20th homer. I’m told the Hittertron loved FTJ in Coors last night. It likes rubbing its metallic junk on magnets almost as much as hitters in Coors.

Ryan McMahon – 3-for-3, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 16th homer, hitting .261. Mean’s while, Trevor Story got a double. *arranges tacks on desk, slams head down*

Luis Castillo – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 5.83. Every pitcher is breaking bad, and Castillo’s like it’s all good, man. All right, I’m tentatively taking the child-proof seal off Castillo and will be starting him again.

Cody Bellinger – Hit the IL with 2021’s Cody Bellinger sucks. There’s no cure.

Mookie Betts – 3-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer. Not bad for a world-class bowler.

Didi Gregorius – Diagnosed with pseudogout. Such an underrated song from the great Phil Collins, “Pseu, pseu, pseudogout.” No idea if this is serious or psuedoserious.

Andrew McCutchen – 1-for-3 and his 11th homer. Not a great season, but about 11 times better than Cody Bellinger!

Bryce Harper – Left the game with lower back tightness. Bryce Harper is having a clown season, bro!

Adalberto Mondesi – Activated from the IL. Ron Burgundy, “I don’t believe you.”

Matt Manning – Expected to make his MLB debut on Thursday. On the Prospectonator, Manning is ranked 499th for rookie pitchers, and that made me guffaw. Here’s what Prospect Itch said previously, “I’d put (Manning) above Mize if I knew he was beyond the forearm scare that ended his 2020 at the training site (Grey note: seems like he is). I’ve always had some trepidation about Manning because he steps toward third with his lead leg then has to kind of launch his body over his front side. A fantastic athlete whose father was a professional basketball player (Grey note: Was his father Dr. J?), Manning actually repeats this delivery quite well, which has made Detroit reluctant to change it in part because it creates incredible deception. At six foot six with a unique release point and excellent extension (Grey note: He’s the same height as me, when standing on a desk), he might be the most deceptive right handed SP in the majors if he sticks as a starter.” Didn’t even look for Manning in my shallow leagues. Grabbed him in one 15-team mixer, because I have a problem, and that problem is I need starters.

Wilson Ramos – Activated from the IL and DFA’d which is hilarious. Not that I think Ramos is great, but why did the Tigers sign him when they had Jake Rogers and Eric Haase? Teams are so dumb.

Jonathan Schoop – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer, and about the 20th time I’ve mentioned him in the last two weeks and still the 1st thing everyone asks about him, “Hey, Grey, beautiful face, should I drop Schoop?”

Casey Mize – 6 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.49. He’s the kinda sell that is impossible. No one is giving you anything for him, so just ride him out until he’s not good anymore, which could be by next week or September.

Kris Bryant – Left the game after being hit by a pitch on his hand. Thanks a lot, Trevor Bauer!

Javier Baez – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer. See what I said for Rafael Devers, and subtract forty points of average.

Taijuan Walker – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 2.12. Nice to get one last game in with the sticky stuff! Kidding. I think, I have no idea. Have you heard the latest from Rob Manfraud? Pitchers caught with any foreign substance on the ball, including sunscreen, will be suspended for 10 days. With the umps patting down pitchers every half inning, it turns out The Naked Gun was a documentary. To combat any potential rule-breakers, MLB will be employing drug-sniffing dogs that have been trained to sniff out the coconut smell of sunscreen. From the the dog trainer’s website, “We put the cop in Coppertone.”

From a future game, “Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa heading out to the mound to change the pitcher–What’s this, the umpire and Tony are having a talk…It appears it’s about sunscreen…Oh, Tony had a pina colada in his pocket. We’re all good. Back after this break.” Oh, and another point I’m sure no one thought of, what about the hand bath NL pitchers will have to do after taking swings as a batter, where they have to use pine tar, then going back to the mound?

The coup de grace, as the hoity-toity say, if a foreign substance is found on the ball, the pitcher is held responsible, no matter who applied the substance. If you’re an opposing player facing deGrom, your one job is to sneak some suntan lotion on the ball so the umps think it’s him. Umps aren’t that dumb? HAHAHAHA, okay.

The Ump Show, starring Joe West! Watch as he checks pitchers’ tanlines for wet suntan lotion between innings and the cracks of dried skin. “…Welcome back to the game. During the break, Joe West has been checking Jake Arrieta’s elbow, and it looks like Arrieta is saying, ‘I have eczema.'”

Then, in the World Series, Joe Buck takes us through the action, “Home plate umpire Joe West is smelling Lance Lynn’s elbow for the coconut notes of suntan lotion.” Explaining further, Smoltz says, “You see a lot of umpires check the ph-balance to see if it registers as suntan lotion, but Joe West is one of the best, and sniffing it for coconut speeds the game up.”

    Supremely superb! Was I referring to your report or the new Phineas and Ferb movie?

    a. Seriously! Was scouting the Cubs-Cards game (last weekend I think), Kohl Stewart was on the mound. Meh, not bad through 2IP then the wheels came off sort of. My point? I go this guy looks a lot like Cashner and Anderson (two Texans – both from Central Texas, like Aberdeen or something and can’t remember where Anderson’s from but about 2 hours’ drive away), I bet he’s from Texas too. I look him up? Natch he’s from Houston, TX!! Have a look at all three of them bearded up and don’t tell me you don’t see SOME resemblance! If you’re wondering how you got to the wrong Wong page (Kean, Kolten’s brother who is 5 years younger), blame yourself for mentioning Cashner AND Anderson in the same report!! (Just kidding, mensch, I know you didn’t mention Anderson but you should’ve he had a great start.)

    b. My love affair with Aquino has ended and a new love has come up…Engel who I mistakenly christened Engels. Hard to undo that.

    “Not that I think Ramos is great, but why did the Tigers sign him when they had Jake Rogers and Eric Haase? Teams are so dumb.” Could have had something to do with their 2020 slash lines: Ramos, .239/.297/.387; Haase, .176/.211/.176; Rogers, no MLB AB. Not hard to see why Ramos was considered an improvement at the time.

      Rogers and Haase were ready for the majors, and Ramos wasn’t making a club that wouldn’t compete suddenly compete

    Hoping Castillo gets back on the horse moving through the 2nd half. I traded a few valuable pieces for him in dynasty this past off-season.

    Man, the Yankees just need to give it up this year and break down the team. They look lost and gross at the plate.

    Moved Adolis Garcia, Rendon and Kaprelian for Devers and Lux just this week (before Rendon may have had a boo boo). Thoughts there? I’m thinking Lux really clicks in the 2nd half and Devers keeps on rolling while Garcia doesn’t go full Arozarena for the whole year. I have pitching, so can lose Kaprelian and Rendon doesn’t look quite right at the plate to me. Not sure what it is, but my armchair hitting coach eye is twitching.

    Suggestion for giving up a tie/lead on your last pitch…I considered it giving something away, or charity. So I suggest:
    Philanthrow’d

    Bailey Ober… any interest?

    Based on the fact that he was not mentioned on the podcast, I’m guessing no. Sneaky interesting option. 4 pitch mix with some K upside. Giving up too many HR but he may get a shot in that rotation.

    • NUX says:
      (link)

      Someone asked the Itch this recently: “Always performed. 6’9” w plus command is a rare build. Adding some velo this year too. Very promising pitcher who’ll get a big dynasty value bounce with a couple more solid starts.”

      I’m intrigued with anyone that he seems to be slightly intrigued with. And I had an extra spot in my minors slots for a dynasty team, so I added him, but won’t start him today. Just gonna wait and see. Will be quick to move on this week or next if he looks like a JAG.

      I’d argue that he had to come in sooner than expected and was perhaps thrown off. He looked good after his first two rough innings in there. I stopped watching after the 2nd and he wasn’t able to put people away, so the k upside might be limited long term.

      • The Harrow says:

        his first 2 batters were K and double play, so he started good (bases loaded when he came in pretty sure too with no outs).

    Sent out a trade last night that the owner is pondering.

    I get Luis Castillo (expiring after this year)
    He gets Tyler O’Neill ($1 this year and the next two)

    I’m playing to win now and in first with depth at OF (Acuna, Betts, Harper, Larnach, Kirilloff, Riley). It’s an Otteneu points league, but no extra points lost for a hitter K.

    Sounds good, right? If Castillo pitches this way rest of the season, I’m happy, despite a potential breakout for O’Neill.

    • ray says:
      (link)

      I gave up Pablo Lopez for Castillo back in early May, and had started to sweat it out….deep SP staff, so worth the gamble….finally starting to look a bit better.

      • Dave Funnell says:
        (link)

        That’s a pretty good trade for both teams considering where Castillo was. Both sides getting great productivity by season’s end….hopefully.

        • ray says:
          (link)

          Yea, he needed immediate help and my goal was to acquire another horse for the longer term this season.

      I’d want better, but could work out

      • Dave Funnell says:
        (link)

        For added context, the best starters available (given the teams I’m competing against and the contract length and cost) for the price I’m willing to pay (O’Neill) are….Stroman, Urias, S. Gray, Urquidy, Maeda, Rodon, T. Rogers.

        I feel like I could do an O’Neill for one of those pitchers swaps. Or at least try. That’s why I went with Castillo.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

    If I properly recall one of your previous posts, you mentioned Vladdy, Tatis, and Acuna as your top 3 frontrunners for next year (at the time you wrote it).

    Can Ke’Bryan Hayes, if injuries not taken into account, crack your top 20 for next year? The only 2 things I see missing are SBs and a better surrounding lineup.

    Warrant Issued for the Arrest of Cody Bellinger

    In the early morning hours of June 16, 2021 an warrant was issued for the arrest of Cody Bellinger on multiple counts of Fantasy Homicide. The calls for Bellinger’s arrest nominally came from millions of fantasy baseballers (Grey’s mom’s term) upon seeing that, once again, Bellinger was headed to the IL instead of the plate. Having a first or second round pick as a bust virtually ensures a poor standing in your fantasy leagues, and apparently, the natives are a little bloodthirsty. However, sources close to the judge who issued the warrant have confirmed that Bellinger was on half her fantasy teams, and “Enough is enough.” Rumors that Bellinger was also a fixture on a certain well-known fantasy baseball blogger’s teams have been met with “No comment you schmohawk!”
    More details to come.

    • Tom says:
      (link)

      Sometimes it’s not always who you get but also who you avoid that can lead to fantasy success. I avoided Bellinger completely this past draft season after watching a youtube video about Bellinger called “Cody Bellinger: the Highest Player in Baseball.

      • rotisserie.jedi says:
        (link)

        I hold fantasy grudges, big time. I have him in 2 of my 5 key leagues, and he is just killing me. I will not be drafting Bellinger next year unless he drops to 5th or 6th round rank.

    If Trevor Rogers will go more than 130 innings…he went 126 in 23 starts in the minors in 2019 and 2020 was a short season that affected all pitchers.

    If we question him, we have to equally question Corbin Burnes who’s never thrown more than 59 innings until this year and Rodon who’s coming back from an injury and went just 7 innings in 2020, 34 in 2019, 120 2018, 69 in 2017.

    If innings are a concern, would you take Rogers over Burnes ROS?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Think we should question Burnes too

      • Play Ball says:
        (link)

        Also makes me think Ray is the preferred option over these ROS for volume. Good ratios, K and QS.

        Just like Rodon, he’s had a history of control issues with flashes of dominance. This year he’s only had two starts allowing more than three BB….the majority teo or less. His BB/9 is the same as Rodon this year and less than Rogers.

    Austin Nola
    Trevor Bauer
    Blake Snell
    Trevor Rogers
    Zach Eflin
    Luis Castillo
    Yusei Kikuchi

    I also have Alzolay and Gallen on the IL.

      NoLa, assuming you mean Aaron of course
      Gallen
      Bauer

      Then Snell or Castillo, depending on how rest of 2021 plays out

      When you say cut the rest, you mean at the end of 2021 right? That seems obvious, but I read it three times now and figure I should make sure. Anyways, you should trade Bauer for the best bat you can possibly get right now.

If he keeps this discipline up I think he’ll be a breakout this year. I’m in.

    With a 4-6 week delay, and a best case scenario of being back in the beginning of August, is Severino an IL stash in a redraft league? Assuming he makes it back by 8/1, that gives him 5-6 starts likely on an innings limit. I feel like I’m talking myself into dropping him. What would you do?

    Is the context of this term for a pitcher who is pitching a good game and then loses the lead on the final pitch, or for any situation where the pitcher loses the lead on the final pitch? Like if he’s going on a 4-0 shutout then gives up a grand slam or it’s a 8-4 lead and he gives up the grand slam?

    I feel like in the first case it’d leave a sour taste in my mouth so the term I am thinking about involves some kind of relation to “sour taste” – maybe “sour pitch”? Like Yu got knocked out with a “sour pitch”

    Also wanted to continue the convo last night with Gary Sanchez – do you think he’s viable in fantasy right now or should I continue leaving him on the wire? His Ks would kill me sure, but those statcast numbers indicate he’s still hitting the ball real hard, or would you still think Carson Kelly will outplay Sanchez this season?

      I’d want Kelly

      • William Hung says:

        Just noticed his Rotoworld blurb today & wonder if it’ll make the blurbstomp column –

        Sanchez is hitting .278/.316/.528 in June after also turning in a pretty solid .213/.333/.443 line in May. Perhaps he’ll never get back to hitting for average like he once did, but his current .225 mark isn’t all that bad in a league that is hitting .238. It looks like he’ll provide a pretty good return for those who drafted him at a reduced price this spring.

    Mayo clinic says Pseudogout (SOO-doe-gout) is a form of arthritis characterized by sudden, painful swelling in one or more of your joints. These episodes can last for days or weeks. So there’s that. But Harper’s back is the story here (he’s not back).

    Beat reporters are writing about his year over year recurrence of back issues, and potential long-term concerns. That’s a bummer. I like the player, but I think I’m out on him going forward, indefinitely. Plus the guy is always missing games here and there with the classic baseball term of “nagging injuries.” Might have to put Harper in the same bin as Stanton, Judge, etc…..maybe Bellinger joins him.

        the problem i see is that “death throw” implies something truly awful happened… but they just lost the lead, which the team could in theory get back in the next set of ABs so the pitcher could still escape with the win or just ruin your ratios

        Hmm i’m seeing a bunch of Charlie Blackmon questions today – is this cause his hit streak ended last night? Is the call to sell? I have him cause last we talked he was a OF2 level @ home and a bench on the road… but guys I’d be interested in picking up would be: Biggio, Gallo, McNeil, Dylan Moore

        People in my league don’t like Gallo cause we count Ks… and I’m iffy on him since I picked Chapman back up and if I play both regularly i’m pretty much punting that category.

        I could also decide to pick up a streaming pitcher using that roster spot.

    holy god, in a league that let HOU do what it did for 2 years and they even when caught got away with it, somebody might think yr only joking about “when playing against degrom just put some shit on the ball etc” but that’ll be a real thing. i get they want this stuff out and by next year will have to have a special cop team to check pitchers at all times but if the ball itself is what penalizes the pitchers they can’t even prove WHO is putting stuff on the balls that the pitchers get suspended for? that’s crazy town. better not still somehow be good pitchers, somebody’ll just wipe something on the ball to get you thrown out, what are the chances this doesn’t happen when some manager finds it this easy to just get his opposing pitchers thrown out? esp cora. we’ll start seeing 2-3 pitchers a week that play against BOS getting suspended and a bunch of players will start complaining about how they did nothing wrong, that’s if he wants to make it seem like it’s even believable it’s not like every hitter doesn’t already have legal/easy access to it. the catchers can basically determine every pitcher they want out. this surely won’t be a bigger shit show than what they’ve been doing for over 120 or so years.

        this would open an opportunity to say get manfraud fired though by the owners. easy peasy. ALL pitchers put stuff on the balls. everybody gets suspended. in that brand new ruling is that the teams won’t get to call up anybody else for the suspended pitcher. the sport becomes a complete joke when position backups are pitching all the time. (i.e. loses money immediately, which is all owners care about at all, otherwise this crap wouldn’t happen anyway). or if the players were serious (re: their social media yellings about HOU and letting MLBPA protect them anyway) about getting back at HOU/cora: have ONLY pitchers playing against cora use stuff, then everybody would notice how crazy it seems that ONLY players playing against BOS are using stuff. would make the obv assumption that cora is sending out his catchers and doctoring up the balls to get his opposing pitchers thrown out.

    In a 5×5 dynasty league with contracts and keepers and my pitching is struggling this year:
    I can trade for Cole, who is $38, for K. Lewis -$5 with a 2-year contract and J. Means -$0 and a 3rd or 4th round pick in the next draft. Total salary cap is 250. My other pitchers:
    Ryu -14
    McCullers-10
    Corbin -7
    Gausman -8
    Heaney-6
    Kaprielian -0
    L. Gilbert -0
    Gallen -12
    Severino -5

    League is 5×5 keeper/contract league. Should I make this trade? Take on the salary for an ace and give up on Lewis and Means coming back as they were? Thanks.

    My uninspired contribution:
    parting gift

    12-team H2H standard cats
    I’m looking to package Lindor and Fried (triple-wrapping that gift box, to hide the smell) for an SP, but SS is such a stacked position it’s hard to find a team that might have interest in Lindor in a 12-teamer.

    the team with
    D. Moore
    D. Swanson
    D. Gregorius
    has:
    Z. Greinke (love to watch him in “real” life, not so exciting for these porpoises)
    T. Mahle
    T. Walker
    is lindor/fried a fair offer for Walker? Is Mahle worth an offer of Lindor? of course, the whole thing might be moot, because Lindor’s first name doesn’t begin with a D, and this guy seems to collect D-named SSs.

    the team with
    T Story (Lindor would be an upgrade in the UTIL spot)
    J. Segura
    N. Hoerner
    has
    C. Rodon
    M. Stroman
    C. burnes
    assuming Rodon and Burnes are out of reach, take a stab at Stroman?

    gratitude!

      Think we’re going with death throw

      Lindor for these are not great…Trade a lesser SS for a lesser SP

      • Mitt face says:
        (link)

        Death throw is nice. Can’t read it without hearing a mortal kombat’ian voice, or thinking of old ninja flics.

        Sadly, after recently acquiring Semien and Albies, Lindor is my lesser SS. Having also recently traded away Miami’s T Rogers, i’m looking for someone with ace-like upside.
        My ace-free staff is:
        C. bassitt
        PabLo
        Y Kikuchi
        D. Cease
        A wood
        A Manoah
        S. McClanahan
        A Gomber
        Fried

        Alzolay is on the wire, but i have no room for him, with Springer teasing a return….unless i can swing a 2fer

        • Mitt Face says:
          (link)

          should have mentioned:
          the large pitching staff is due to having blown through 30/50 movies, as a result of injuries, and the fact i don’t have anyone i would start in any/every matchup (outside PabLo)

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          You might want to trade away another type of hitter that isn’t an SS

          • Mitt Face says:
            (link)

            I’m taking up way too much of your time. you do the work of a whole team of people on here, every day. it’s bonkers.
            hard to just leave Lindor benched (i have cruz at UTIL, which is the only other place i could play him), and – despite his struggles – he seems too valuable to drop, outright. Considering the frequency of injuries this year, i could hold and wait to see if another SS goes down. just hard watching my 2nd round pick sit on a bench, rather than being sent for a decent return.
            once Springer is back, I’ll have Pham to consider moving (but would prefer to keep him in case springer gets hit by a brisk breeze, and his leg falls off or some such).

            thanks again.

        Yeah it’s hard since there are two or three other managers below me in the standings who literally grab every single available non-DL starting pitcher off the waiver wire and stream them. Since I’m still in first place I have the last waiver claim priority in our league so it’s difficult to stream a starter. Maybe I’ll take a flyer on Hill, thanks.

    Here’s my daily Yelich question.

    I was offered Robbie Ray, Jose Urquidy, Riley Greene, and a ‘22 1st round pick for Yelich.

    I’m currently in 1st, and that’s basically without Yelich. I don’t really need him in this league. Offensively I’m loaded ( Vlad, Tatis, Betts, Ramirez, etc). It’s a h2h dynasty. I need the pitching this year, and I really think Riley Greene is going to be a star.

    What do you think? Am I stupid to consider it?

    • Long Bawls says:
      (link)

      What level of talent would you be able to get with that first round pick?

      i get my greene OF prospects names confused but if that is the best one, yes (i’m half kidding, but he’s the DET one yeah). esp if that 1st round pick will be good (have no idea how many teams here, but esp if like a top 4 one). not stupid to consider it, esp if you are benching yelich anyway.

    A. Watching the start of Cubs-Mets game, it looks like the Cubs figure their best chance to beat Degrom tonight is by taking out his teammates; the leader off man, Villar, was hit in head by catcher’s throw to 2nd base; the #2 hitter, Dom Smith, was plunked by pitcher.

    B. Foreign substances: I think they should grandfather in the older stuff, like rosin & sunscreen, and only ban the newer stuff like Spider-tack. And I don’t really blame the pitchers that have been ‘cheating’, I blame their managers, coaches, GMs etc. that encourage it or at least tolerate it.

    C. On to my questions. 12 team mixed, H2H redraft: only 1 IL spot. Hold on to Means (who could be back in about 3 weeks), and drop Glasnow?

    D. Another league: 12 team mixed, H2H redraft, standard 5 X 5. Please rank these SPs R.O.S.: Ohtani(P), Maeda, Desclafani, R. Hill, L. Garcia (assuming he stays in rotation), Manoah.
