“You want me to list the eczema medication’s ingredients?  Can I ask you why?”  “JUST LIST THEM.”  “Okay, take it easy.  Propylene glycol, paraffin wax, pinetaroleum–”  “PINETAROLEUM IS NOT ALLOWED.  IT INDUCES A HIGHER SPIN RATE.”  That is part of a recurring dream Trevor Bauer has where he’s dressed as a TSA agent, while standing on the side of the Astros pitcher’s mound.  The dream always ends the same way.  Someone asks Trevor Bauer how does he account for Joe Musgrove being better after leaving the Astros and Bauer wakes in a sweat, screaming, “GERRIT COLE STOLE MY COLLEGE GIRLFRIEND!”  Joe Musgrove’s velocity is up, he’s throwing a cutter 15% of the time more and abandoned his curve altogether.  This has upped his ground balls (not literally) and made him a usable pitcher for all leagues, and around a 3.60 ERA pitcher.  Of course, he’s not a sub-1.00 ERA pitcher, as he is right now, but still ownable everywhere.  Though, I guess he could be a 1.00-ERA pitcher if his eczema medication has pinetaroleum.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Max Stassi – If Max Stassi doesn’t wear a monocle and work as an evil dentist as his side gig, I’m misreading him.

John Ryan Murphy – Usually don’t give you two catchers, but it was add this guy or leave John Ryan Murphy off and risk an assassination attempt.  “John Ryan Murphy is performing at Ford’s Theater?  That sounds like it could be good.”

Max Muncy – You know what all of these Max’s mean?  Guys are now baseball-aged that were born after it became fashionable to name every baby boy after an old man.  “Hey, Amos, where are you going?”  “Out with my friends Moses, Solomon, Abraham and Bernard.”  You going out with a bunch of grandpas or four babies?!  Give me a clue with your name!

Isiah Kiner-Falefa – Has been hitting in the two-hole and, yes, that’s a sad commentary on the Rangers, but Kiner-Falefa’s not a total PITA.

Josh Harrison – Really didn’t even want to mention him, but he’s just under 50% owned, and you could do worse.  What’s Odor done recently?  That’s prolly worse.  Nine out of ten times that you say Odor is doing worse, you’re correct.

Jeimer Candelario – Lot of guys this week who have great lineup spots, because of a lack of options from their team.  Hey, I want world peace, but I wanna watch Wold Star.  I wanna be a feminist, but I’m still watching porno.  I should be reading a book, but I keep watching TV.  I want a three hole hitter, and all I got was Jeimer.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – C’mon, Jays, make my weekend.

Miguel Andujar – Out of all the guys on this list, I was most surprised to see Andujar available in more than 50% of leagues.  I guess if Clara Bell owns 10,000 ESPN leagues to fill his virtual trophy case, and doesn’t own Andujar, it would skew his ownership numbers.

Johan Camargo – Now you can grab Camargo, Matt Adams and rename your fantasy team, “Fried Chicken & Camargo Adams!”

Yairo Munoz – I think Muñoz stole Acuña’s tilde power this week.  He’s hitting umlaut!

Amed Rosario – On our 7-day Player Rater (yes, we have one of those too), Rosario has been worth about $17 in the last week.

Brandon Nimmo – A lot of the blurbs in the Buy column are light on info, because I’ve been going over all these guys all week.  Nimmo is the epitome of that, mentioning him about ten days in a row.  Put your little burp machine on your lap, bounce it up and down and search the site, telling your baby, “C’mon, we’re finding Nimmo,” so your wife overhears and thinks you’re being a good father.

Mac Williamson – If I were Williamson (or really any hitter), I’d walk to the plate calling my shot, a home run over the right field fence.  Eventually you have to be right.  Like Babe Ruth didn’t do this.  Since games weren’t televised, no one realized he did that shizz every game.

Robert Gsellman – Still seems like Familia is the closer, but is Callaway sane?  The Jeurys is out, so here’s a Gbuyman.

Kyle Barraclough – Mattingly seems to finally figured out Barraclough is better than Ziegler.  Not sure if it’s because he fell asleep on a Barcalounger and was like, “Hey, that reminds me,” but it would not surprise me.

Ryan Tepera – You know who’s closing for the Jays?  Cool, could you tell the Jays, because they have no idea.

Seranthony Dominguez – Gabe Kapler is so hepped up on goofballs and Red Bulls — Goof Bulls? — he literally changes the closer once a week, and by Sunday Neris always seems to be the closer again.

Marco Gonzales – Has made a case to just be owned, but this is a Stream-o-Nator call, like the call it makes to Sears and asks that the phone be placed by the toaster ovens so it can talk.

Nick Tropeano – Yet another Stream-o-Nator call.  “Do you have a broil function?  That’s nice.  Sigh.”  Stream-o-Nator is sad!

SELL

Dee Gordon – These fast guys fracturing their toes and coming back in, like, 16 hours has me shook.  Maybe Gordon isn’t Byron Buxton, but when you’re growing new toes quicker than grass grows on my Bette Midler Chia pet, I’m concerned.  There’s a problem with selling Gordon, of course.  On a lot of teams, he was your source of steals, so that makes it harder to sell him.  On our Fantasy Baseball Buy/Sell tool, he’s been about as valuable as you can expect, but that was with ten working foot-fingers.  I’d go on the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer to see what kind of offers you can make, though I wouldn’t sell him for a free haircut from Kim Jong-un’s barber.

    Asked a couple days ago, about Murph on waivers… was an accidental drop so not available.

    1) Is Beltre worth a top claim? My 3B are Donaldson and JT
    2) Cron or Bird ROS?
    3) His Porcello for my Castellanos, 12 team h2h points. (my sp are Snell, Nola, Price, Fulmer, Clev, Tanaka, Heaney, a.k.a really inconsistent besides Nola/Snell/Clev).
    4) Or would you rather do Snell/Nick for Bellinger/Porcello? It is a keeper league.

      1. Nah 2. Cron 3. Sounds fair 4. Yes, prefer this

    12T mixed roto keeper

    Just traded for Kershaw who is likely headed back to the DL. Can’t keep Kershaw next year. Who would you try and move him for considering he’ll likely be out 4-8 weeks (me guessing with back strain).

    Thanks

  10. Uno Mas Cerveza says:
    (link)

    When Andrus gets back in the line up the Rangers need to consider replacing Odor with Kiner-Filefa. Dude has a high baseball IQ and will hit 50 points higher in average. Profar has had a long audition for other teams with Andrus gone and certainly his trade value has improved. At least turn it into a platoon scenario. Watching Odor versus LHP is brutal.

    Send my H2H team good vibes for the final 3 days of the week – been without Betts all week and my offense has slowed to just only 15 Rs, 3 HRs, 22 RBIs, and 4 SBs while posting a nice .328/.390 BA/OBP line, unfortunately my oppo has a .344/.413 line

    Currently down 8-5, so gotta have my guys eat some spinach and power up. A CG SO with 10+ Ks from Pivetta tonight v. Giants wouldn’t hurt either.

        @Grey: Soooo Betts was put on the DL too late for me to add Nimmo for tonight’s game, so i added him and he’s on my bench… not quite sonnavabench, but still counts as one I guess

                @Grey: I could potentially try to stage a comeback and stream a pitcher tomorrow, but my drop would have to be Yoan Moncada… Better to just take the hit?

                Things got a lot worse since this afternoon – currently at .147 BA with 14 Ks. Lone RBI on the night from Grandal

    Hey guys,

    Another C question — have Hicks right now (5×5, start one) and Molina on the DL.

    1. drop Hicks for Stassi or JRM?
    2. is Molina the best of the bunch once he nuts-up and starts playing again? Too soon?

    16 team 9×9 H2H auction league with 6 keepers. Can keep guys for 4 years. I am not in contention this year so have decided to rebuild. My keepers so far are:

    Benintendi $1
    Gleyber Torres $4
    Bauer $1
    CarMart $10
    Meadows $1 (maybe)
    Tatis Jr. $1 (maybe)

    Was offered Alex Reyes ($2) for my Travis Shaw ($35) and Brandon Morrow ($1).

    Thoughts? I like Shaw but not sure I’d keep him at that price…

    Thanks!

    Whats happening Grey? So Im in a 10 team 5×5 OBP/QS league. I tend to only keep one bench bat, I have 2 right now but I’ll be back to one when SP Martinez returns next week. So if you had one bench spot who do you like more(be forewarned none are exciting options) 1B/OF Mancini, 2B/3B/OF Nunez or OF Polanco? I have positional versatility, just need the best guy with OF eligibility out of that lot of underachievers.

    ok heres my lineup – 12 team pts league, no negative pts. Only have 9 pickups left for the rest of the year.

    C: Zunio (I had W Castillo)
    1B: C Santana
    2B: M Carpenter
    3B: J Gallo
    SS: C Correa
    OF: M Haniger
    OF: E Inciarte
    OF: G Stanton

    B: J Bell
    B: DJ Lemahieu
    B: Jose Martinez

    P: R lopez
    P: J Ordorizzi
    P: L Severino

    B: Y Darvish
    B: G Holland
    B: M Estrada

    So Musgrove, Nimmo, stripling, eovaldi, fiers are available. Would you take any of those guys over what I have? Any other suggestions on who to pick up? seems like it is slim pickings with a deep bench we have. Holland and Estrada have been awful

    Idk how the jays call up vlad with donaldson on the roster. Vlad can only play 3rd or 1st. Have you seen that guys ass? its giant. on a side note I don’t see Vlad jr having a long career. Mostly due to his ass being large af. Hes 19 going on 27. By the time his 25 hes going to be like 42

    • Pager24 says:
      (link)

      @Willy Mo: this a clown comment bro! He’s easily the most pure hitter in the game right now. Even if he follows fielder’s path he’s still only 19 f’ing yreas old! Even without working out, which is dumb to think, he’ll still likely keep weight off through his mid 20’s. Also, It’s not like Sr. Didnt have a big ass- he turned out ok

    Imagine they dont call him up this year.

    “By adding him to the 40-man roster and bringing him up now, the earliest Guerrero Jr. would become a free agent is the end of 2024, as opposed to leaving him in the minors for the rest of 2018, promoting him several weeks into the 2019 season — so that he does not accrue the required 172 days in the majors which triggers one year of MLB service time — and having him under control through his age-25 season and through the end of 2025.”

    To avoid super 2 they just had to wait until June 1 (today) to call him up. I feel like if they dont call him up this weekend it might not happen this year at all.

    Theres also guys coming off the dl shortly who complicate things.

  36. Packers says:

    I have I. Happ at 2B in a 12 team weekly roto dynasty, playing two guys at each position.
    I also have Whit. One manager has Baez, Dozier and Odor. He is near the bottom with guys on the DL on his active roster. I could offer Happ, S. Gray and Godley for one of those guys. Is that to much or go for it?

    2. When you comment in deeper leagues what do you mean by that? So for example in my 12 team leagues we start 25 which is 300 deep plus 6 reserves which is another 72 players for a total of 372, is this a deep league?

    Hey Grey, hold or drop on Andrew Miller? Apparently he’s just dealing with right knee inflammation and nothing structural, and should be back in a week or so. He’s been flatout bad so far though, and needs to be lights out to bring back value. I own him in two leagues, both 12-team, one with deep rosters for ESPN. What say you? And thanks as always!

    I’m sure we all at one point in our lives have sang along to that song haha! Booze may have been involved… Good stuff Grey.

    1. If these guys get out of the weekend without injury, I need to start 2 next week:
    Rendon 5 (2 vs TB 3 vs SF)
    Ozuna 6 (3 vs Mia 3 @ Cin)
    Moncada 7 (4 @ Min, doubleheader… 3 @ Bos)

    2. Was going to drop Flaherty for Seranthony for ratios in a H2H weekly, noticed Flaherty is vs Mia next week (SON in double digits $)…. hold (on) ?

    3. Enjoy your weekend in sunny Cal…. over/under days of year you get rain… 30?

    Hi Grey, Thanks for another great buy/see column.

    Was just offered Merrifield for my Cain. Current lineup is as follows:

    Posey
    C. Santana
    Kinsler
    Arenado
    Bregman
    Trout
    Cain
    Haniger
    McCutchen

    Is the trade a clear win, close, or nah?

    10 team NL only, keep 3 at previous season ADP’s. OBP over AVG, net steals over steals, QS over wins, holds and total bases added h2h
    C barnhart
    1B freeman (3B)
    2B harrison (3B)
    3B longo
    SS gone varnish (2B)
    MI owings (or wong’s out there literally no other starter)
    CI mini donkey (zimm sounds back soon though)
    OF (4) harper, marte, nimmo, b.anderson (3B)
    util (1) bader
    BN r-zimm (5 DL’s out of space)
    DL (5) rhysus (1B/OF), thames (1B/OF), hanson (2B/OF)
    NA (1) senzel
    SP wheeler, gohara, weaver, kingham, wacha, guerra, stripling, darvish (sounds back fastest of my SP DL’s)
    RP (4) sera anthony (parents couldn’t decide on name before it was a boy clearly and met in the middle), hand, boxy, minter
    DL ryu, reyes

    taylor and fowler dropped recently.
    1. which of these options is best:
    a. drop mini donkey for one of taylor/fowler, move anderson to CI slot
    b. hold
    c. drop mini donkey and barnhart grab both ATL catchers, move anderson to CI slot.

    2. when r-zimm is back clearly mini donkey is the drop (unless zimm gets benched in real life)
    which of these is best at that time:
    a. drop mini donkey for one of the OF in FA mentioned above
    b. drop barnhart and mini donkey, grab both ATL catchers (nobody owns them due to them splitting time)

    3. right now would you own bader or one of fowler/taylor (i dropped o’neill just now for bader)

    this is all just a reprint from earlier, but now with goodwin back, any changes?

    Someone in my league just offered his Noah Syndergaard for my Clayton Kershaw in a straight up deal. Do I pull the trigger?

    Hitters:
    C – Wilson Ramos
    1B – Cody Bellinger*
    2B – Whit Merrifield
    3B – Kris Bryant*
    SS – Carlos Correa*
    MI – Jonathan Schoop
    CI – Nolan Arenado*
    OF – George Springer*
    OF – Starling Marte
    OF – Eddie Rosario
    OF – Lorenzo Cain
    U – Jose Abreu
    Bench hitters – Juan Soto and Jose Martinez

    Pitchers:
    P – Carlos Carrasco
    P – James Paxton
    P – Justin Verlander
    P – Charlie Morton
    P – Aroldis Chapman
    P – Josh Hader
    P – Keone Kela
    P – Joe Kelly
    Bench pitchers – Sean Newcomb, Nick Pivetta, Jose Quintana, Joe Musgrove, Kyle Barraclough, Carl Edwards Jr.

    DL:
    Clayton Kershaw*
    Robbie Ray
    Rich Hill

    As you can see, I’m definitely not short on SPs and can more than hold my own while Kershaw is healing. I guess my concern is if Kershaw will ever return to his old form, especially being on the wrong side of 30 and a growing list of injuries. While Syndergaard has an injury history of his own, he’s still only 25 and could very easily make a jump into the top tier of SPs.

    For league context, I’m in a 10-team keeper league where everyone can keep 6 players without penalty or restriction. Scoring is 6×6 with holds and OPS as the last categories for pitching and hitting. Players with an asterisk (*) by their names were my keepers from last season.

    • Grey

    But sorry to dampen the excitement. I have at least 1 catcher question

    12 team Yahoo H2H 6X6 (OBP/ Sv+H / QS)

    C- Cervelli
    1B- Abreu
    2B- Schoop
    3B- Donaldson (DL)
    SS- Lindor
    OF- Harper / Marte / Rosario
    Util- OZUNA / Cron

    SP- Wacha/ Ohtani / Mikolas / VV/ Castillo / ERod / Weaver / streaming spot
    RP- Colome / Knebel / Kelly / Robertson / Ottavino (DL)

    DL (2)- Yadi / Ray

    1) 3B has been a pain since draft day. Got stuck w/ Longo (wasn’t even on my draft board). Acquired Donaldson (wasn’t even on my draft board) as a throw-in in a trade a few weeks ago (Upside plus can’t be worse than Longo… Ok. Whatever)

    Candelario / Davidson / Andujar are available. Please rank them ROS just in case I decide to drop Donaldson

    2) Should I drop Donaldson? Or find a way to add a 3B to carry as an extra hitter until things shake out?

    3) Who’s my cather when Yadi returns? Yadi or Cervelli?

    Thanks!

        @Grey:

        absolutely. H2H league where I lose saves each week. Tempted to trade Herrera and Britton, cut BearClaw and grab a few “holds” guys to see if I can compete there. ???

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Meh, so you’re punting saves when you have 3 closers to try Holds? Why would Holds be easier?

          • DodgerWindowClosed says:
            (link)

            @Grey:
            Fair question. Most of my league mates have better closers while softer on holds guys. Jones, BearClaw, Herrera play for such piss poor teams, I am not sure of how many save opportunities they will have down the stretch. I will hold and see how things shake out. If Britton is traded to a contender as a closer, that would help!

    Jameson Taillon was dropped in my league… 12 team keeper roto move limit. I’ve been patient and my waiver priority is up to 4 of 12… I’m doing really well in pitching so I don’t necessarily need him but he is a tempting add. I liked him preseason and really like what I saw in his start yesterday. I’d like to try to move a pitcher for a power bat so he could help me part with another pitcher in a trade. Is he worth burning my waiver priority at this point, or should I hold? I would likely drop Michael Taylor to add him.

    Pitchers are Verlander, Ed-Rod, Mikolas, Porcello, Kingham, Caleb Smith, Nate Jones, Doolittle, S Dominguez, Strickland, Ray (DL), J. Nelson (DL)

    #2 how awful is Andrew Miller? Not asking to drop him, though I know you say to doit. I just think wins and a few saves with the other stats being well rounded could be a big help in the last few months. It seems like most pitchers fall off by mid late season. So I could see Miller being valuable.

    americans ending wondering:
    1. ok, after liz killed that lady that wanted to run the centre north africa office (but due to oleg got demoted to assassinations (albeit important ones)) claudia made it pretty clear that liz is not by ANY means in the centre’s good graces. so unless gorbachev and his allies can stomp the centre she won’t be safe in russia at all. and phil by proxy (or more than that if they find out he’s the guy who was oleg’s contact in the u.s.) as well. ending kinda left it that they’re home, and it’s completely weird since they haven’t done anything but be spies away from russia for just over 20 years but they seemed not to be worried about this.

    2. paige. she CAN’T be paige summers anymore, that’s done. can’t go back to college (at least as paige summers). it was pretty clear from claudia that when liz killed the assassin lady she’d be called back to russia (likely demoted when a handler’s people they handle kill THEIR own agents). she does have the new fake identity, but no handler (maybe another shows up?); and even IF a new handler DOES show up wouldn’t she also have by proxy a problem due to liz’s murder of the assassin? worst part is here she DOESN’T even KNOW her mother killed one of their own people. if she somehow finds this out before they possibly kill her she’ll just be on the run for the rest of her life with a fake identity in the u.s. and she’ll likely go to henry, which is pretty much the worst place she CAN go. she’s not an experienced agent, and the feds will be absolutely looking for ANYBODY that resembles her, even with a wig and glasses on. while being trained somewhat, i doubt she has much skills in the department of faking your entire identity to the point where she won’t be found by the feds at some point.

    maybe her fake identity had enough in it such that she could actually BE a normal american girl of her age (go to college elsewhere as the new identity) but i doubt it. it’s way more likely she finshes the vodka, stays at the safe house, a new handler shows up and she’s killed (or never told her mother killed their agent and gets set up elsewhere)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. I took it to mean Liz has been carrying out orders for a leg of the KGB that is not in Gorbachev’s good graces, even though she refused her last assignment, so Liz is in real trouble back in Russia

      2. Agreed, she’s done… Either killed by a handler, FBI or she’s just done being Paige, goes underground and ends up living as someone else i Kansas or somewhere…

    Was offered Kluber for my MadBum and Seager or MadBum and Jo Ma.

    I am saying yes to both. But which one would you prefer to keep…Seager or Jo Ma?

    You’ve just seen a NO HITTER…through 8. Probably your best call of the preseason. I didn’t believe. Really, I don’t think anyone did. Very nice.

    20 team standard OBP H2H.

    I have Musgrove on my DL. Only 2 bench spots. The clear borderline guy is Michael Fulmer. Drop Fulmer so I can activate Musgrove?

    My staff is Fulmer, Pivetta, Trevor Bauer, David Price, Sean Dolittle, Kevin Giles, Jeurys Famillia (Musgrove on DL)

    I dropped Wacha a month ago but picked up Eddie Rosario the same time so guess that worked out for the hitting department!
    1. Sorry for the catcher Q. Molina can stay in dL spot until I make a move I own a Gattis. Stick with Gattis for now or drop
    2. 2 closers for this week which 2:
    Vizcaino 6 – 3 @SD 3 @LAD
    Giles 6 – 2 @Sea 4 @ Tex
