“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.

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)

#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.

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)

If Britton is traded to a contender as a closer, that would help!

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

Thanks!

Grab Tapia and drop Peterson in NL -only to speculate with Dahl out, or will Desmond shift to OF and McMahon to 1st when Parra or Cargo sit out?

10 team H2H 5×5 redraft

My team is fine in most offensive cats, a little weaker in AVG.

Drop Aguilar or Cron for Jose Martinez?

Thanks in advance.

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: The trade analyzer has Kershaw as more than double the value. Any other thoughts?

@RoarOf84: I’d take Syndergaard he’s an easy top 6 keeper for years while Kershaw is on the downside.

Looking to swap an SP to pick up some SB (I also have Bumgarner coming off DL soon, so will probably look to shed one or ore of these guys soon). How do you rank guys going forward: Archer, Price, Pivetta, Tanaka, Velasquez?

Thanks and have a great weekend!

@mthom42:
I have 3 DL spots.
I have Molina, Martinez, Reyes, and Britton all hurt so only 3 are covered.
Also have Guerrero Jr on my bench as a lottery ticket.
… and Devers who is a backup that sits on my bench most of the time.
