In a deep Scottish accent, the Twins’ Triple-A manager said, “You’re comin’ up tae join th’ club, Joe Ryan. Ur ye excited?”
Joe Ryan paused, then asked, “What are you saying?”
“Aam Sean Connery an’ aam daein’ a Scottish accent. Ur ye excited, certainly, Jack Ryan?”
He scratched his head, then, “Huh? Oh. My name’s Joe Ryan.”

So, Joe Ryan was called up to start on Wednesday, and I settled in to watch. He was one of the pieces the Rays sent to the Twins for Nelson Cruz. Since the Rays sent him away, I expect he’ll spontaneously combust during his next start or suddenly lose command of his pitches and return in 2022 as a middle infielder in Rookie Ball. If that doesn’t happen, we should all be super interested. I’m intrigued, y’all! Yesterday, Joe Ryan went 5 IP, 3 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, and looked much better those numbers. Outside of one inning in the 3rd when he ran up against the red-hot Schwingdel, he looked like every great command pitcher, who can also induce strikeouts. Prospect Itch said of Ryan, “I have high hopes for Joe Ryan, another dynasty trade target if you can get a decent price. His 30+ K-BB percentage across three levels in 2019 was pretty loud, but some of the clamor might’ve died down since Ryan was kept under training site wraps for all of 2020. His best trait is a true-spin four-seamer he can command across the zone, and that’s a great base from which to build an arsenal in today’s game. Tampa’s coaches have praised Ryan for his aptitude for new pitches and approaches, particularly his feel for spin. I get giddy just thinking about him and punching Grey.” Okay, not cool! Ryan continued to carve up hitters in Triple-A this year while maintaining elite command. This is potentially as good a prospect arm call-up as we’re getting the rest of the year. I added him in a few deeper leagues. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Kenta Maeda – Had Tommy John surgery and he’s going with an internal brace, which I don’t understand literally at all, but people who do know are saying it could mean he’s back in 9-12 months vs. 12-16 months. Interesting. Seriously. I’m being sincere! Ugh, I can’t even tell, but I am.

Frank Schwindel – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 8th homer, and 3rd homer in the last three games, and, like, his 3,900th homer in the last five days. “Call me Frank Swing Del Schmotato.” Okay, Frank, take it easy. He’ll obviously be in tomorrow’s Buy column, which is already available on the Patreon.

Justin Steele – 5 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 3 walks, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.48. After Empire Strikes Back, Han Solo was Justin Steele. Okay, it was carbonite, you nerd! His peripherals: 10.2 K/9 (yum), 4.7 BB/9 (uhhh), 5.26 FIP (wait, these are supposed to get better not worse). Steele has swing-and-miss-and-miss-and-miss-and-miss stuff, unable to find the car handle through the window (totally a saying!). Streamonator won’t ever like him, if I had to guess, and I could see some truly scary starts from him, but if you need upside, here ya are.

Adalberto Mondesi – 2-for-5, 2 runs and a slam (5) and legs (2), as he was activated from the IL, and the Royals are saying he will play some third base. Anyone know anything about this guy? Looking at the scouting report for him and it looks like he has speed, but I can’t find any video on him. It says file not found.

Yu Chang – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer and his 4th homer in the last five games. Who’s the hottest schmotato? Enter the Yu Chang.

Khris DavisA’s purchased Davis’s contract because Oakland’s last game saw 4,000 fans in the stands, so one more can’t hurt.

Starling Marte – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 10th homer. Yo, Starling’s having the best non-steroided 32-year-old season ever or what? Wait a second, he was suspended in 2017. Dot dot dot. Hmm. Dot dot dot.

Akil Baddoo – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer. Yabba Dabba Baddoo!

Harold Castro – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer. Meh, not much here, unless it’s revealed this is Willi Castro with a name change.

Paul Goldschmidt – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 23rd and 24th homer. Au Pair Shizz!

Harrison Bader – 3-for-6 and his 10th homer. When him and Carlson are in a race to get to 15 homers, I can’t yawn loudly nor obnoxiously enough. Hit some freakin’ ding dongs! These guys point to the outfield not to call their home run shots, but to point out how well the grass grows underneath their feet. Let’s go!

Nolan Arenado – 2-for-6, 2 runs, and his 27th homer. I found a very rare Bazooka Joe comic where he says the F word. Sotheby’s says it’s worth a “f*ck ton,” so I’m going to carelessly put it by this open window–NOOOOOO!!! Torenado!

Miles Mikolas – 3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.41 vs. Wade Miley – 4 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 2.97. Bad week to quit barbiturates and to ignore the Streamonator.

J.A. Happ – 1 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 6.20. Finally, the Cards’ devil magic has turned into the abracadacrapper. Enjoy that regression, Just Awful Crapp.

Nick Castellanos – 4-for-7, 4 runs, 6 RBIs and his 25th and 26th homer, hitting .319. The Greek God of Hard Contact hits homers for the warm embrace of his mother, Nia Vardalos.

Eugenio Suarez – 3-for-5, 2 runs and his 24th homer, hitting .174. It is still so funny to me Dumb Bell had him as his leadoff hitter.

Kyle Farmer – 2-for-6, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 13th homer, and his 2nd homer in the last two days (three games), hitting .258. What’s Farmer out in the field planting? Hot schmotatoes!

Touki Toussaint – Will start today. On one hand, I’m kicking myself in my family breadbasket to toast the dinner rolls because I dropped him. On the other hand, the start will be in Coors. On a third hand that is Hamburger Helper, Drew Smyly’s been bumped from the rotation.

Max Muncy – 2-for-4 and his 30th homer. Cheapest 30-homer to draft every year. Like clockwork. Not A Clockwork Orange, that’s after they drew a minute and second hand in suntan lotion on Justin Turner.

Eddie Rosario – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer. Kinda crazy how many weapons the Braves have and they’re missing Acuña and the woke mob took away their tomahawks.

Yairo Munoz – Tested positive and he’s the Sawx’s 9th player who has Covid. Hey, didn’t MLB used to cancel games due to an outbreak or did I dream that up after falling asleep to the movie Contagion?

Adam Ottavino – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 3.40, and his 11th save. He’s having a better closer year than some guys who have been the closer all year, and Ottavino just got the gig about a week ago.

Wander Franco – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer, which was off of Chris Sale (6 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.53), and I’m gonna be ungodly high on Wander next year.

Johnny Cueto – Hit the IL with an elbow strain. Jason LaRue’s making a fake crying face.

Lorenzo Cain – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 3  RBIs and a slam (7) and double legs (10, 11), and his 2nd homer in two games. Saw he homered the other day and didn’t bother mentioning it because I didn’t think anyone in their right mind would pick him up, but what’s left of your right mind is anyone that’s hitting is worthwhile this time of year.

Brett Anderson – 2 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 4.18, but left after taking a Brandon Crawford liner off his shoulder. Yo, they got pitcher-seeking missiles up in Northern California. Please chill.

Gerrit Cole – 7 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 15 Ks, ERA at 2.73. The Spider Tack narrative seems all but dead. I was worried in the preseason. Cole put those concerns to sleep like he did to Ohtani (3 Ks), Gosselin (4 Ks), well, everyone but David Fletcher and Jo Adell struck out for the Angels. No, I won’t be in on Cole next year, but his ability to throw innings (relative to the league) has to have him above deGrom, right?

Aroldis Chapman – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 3.68, and a 1-2-3 inning for his 25th save. So, now he’s just totally fine? I’m so confused how this guy goes from lights-out to flashing neon lights telling you to stop to good night/God bless.

Marcus Semien – 1-for-3 and a slam (33) and legs (14). He’s gonna be on so many fantasy champions this year. One of my biggest regrets in the preseason was not splooging on Semien–Splurging! I meant splurging!

Steven Matz – 5 IP, 2 ER, 9 baserunners (4 BBs), 5 Ks, ERA at 3.80  vs. Matt Harvey – 4 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 6.28. This matchup was two former Mets who were able to reminiscent about recent Mets’ stories and say, “Sounds like nothing’s changed.”

Lucas Giolito – Will miss his next scheduled start. The White Sox said he’ll return on “Does he have to return this year or can we just start him in Game 1 of the playoffs?”

Gavin Sheets – 2-for-3, 4 RBIs and his 7th and 8th homer. NY Post headline if New York was in Chicago: Holy Sheets! A two-homer night goes a long way to a hot schmotato, but he doesn’t even play every day, so kinda Gavin him the benefit of the doubt.

Carlos Rodon – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.41, in 77 pitches. Love Rodon, but even old school managers like Lol Russa and Dusty are limiting their starters.

Logan Gilbert – 5 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 5.14. Ugh, was so close to streaming Gilbert, but I got cold feet. Should’ve bought some freakin’ socks and streamed him! Streamonator hates his next, and I agree. Ugh, stupid cold feet.

Jake Odorizzi – 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.32. Ya know what’s kinda wild, Mariners are legit playoffs contender and also a team I’d stream anyone against.

Leody Taveras – 2-for-5, 1 run, 2 RBIs and his 7th steal, and third in two games, as he’s already moved up to the leadoff slot. You can wait until he cools off, but that’s not exactly ideal fantasy baseball gameplay.

Brendan Rodgers – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 11th homer. Feel kinda similar about Rodgers as I said about Bader. All good, Cousin Sweatpants, but hit more than 15 homers in a season.

Kyle Freeland – Left after one inning with a left hip impingement. That there, the impingement, that’s one of the worst after-dinner mints.

Joe Barlow – 2/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 1.96 and his 1st blown save. SAGNOF’d upside your head!

Luke Weaver – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.11 as he was activated from the IL. The Padres completely disappear some days (weeks). I have no explanation for it. Weaver being great isn’t the explanation.

Josh VanMeter – 1-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer. Every time I think he’s getting hot he turns into Jean Van Meh.

Trent Grisham – 3-for-4 and his 14th homer. Solid season (for someone drafted around 200th overall, and not in the top 70). Grisham did some good stuff (not this year or if your definition of ‘good stuff’ is very flawed).

Wil Myers – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 16th homer. He’s been better than Grisham. Don’t twist my meaning. Not saying Myers has been good, but he has been better than Grisham on the Player Rater.

Yu Darvish – 2 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 4.05. In the one league where I drafted a high starter (not intentionally, I had Yu down for $25 and the room let me have him at $24), everyone praised me getting Darvish, and, wow, he’s so broke. Like what even. Guess it could be “Spider Tack, Spider Tack, does whatever Spider Tack does.” Maybe he’s hurt; maybe age has finally caught up to him. But, yeah, I have no faith in him anymore. By the way, anyone who says anything great about A.J. Preller feel free to laugh at them.

Playoffs start Monday. My team and questions below.

C- Yasmani
CI – Freeman, Abreu, Donaldson
MI – Albies, Polanco, Trea
OF – must play 5: Springer, Lowe, Yordan, Kepler, Walsh
Util: Tapia
Bench- Happ, Taveras
(Bench has been playing since they are hot and Tapia and now Albies missing time, Kepler sits vs lefties etc)
IL. – Winker ugh

SP – Burnes, Urias, Gaus, Eovaldi, Cease
RP – Gallegos, Colome, Romano, Box
(Saves and hold are separate cats)

1. I had been carrying another holds guy like Petit or Chafin but had to get a bat with injuries. Would you drop a bat for one of those guys or stay the course? If drop, who?
2. Pitching matchups are not ideal next week so I may need to stream some for quantity categories. Would you stream Miley at Cubs, or Lauer home vs Phil’s, or Freeland home Giants or should I hold? If stream, who is my drop?
3. Lastly, why does ERod hate me? I streamed him twice and both times he blew up – vs Texas no less lol

1. Is taveras more than a hot streak? I know hes always been fast and he has the potential for some power (hitting a decent amount of them in triple A) but hes struggled with confidence at the plate, do you think he’s turned a corner? Or should I drop him if he cools off
2. Is glenn otto a good pickup? I’m steaming him for friday but I’m not sure if he’s anything more than a streamer, hes in the Texas rotation for now but he was expected to be a solid bullpen arm, fastball in the mid 90s but his strikeout pitch is a nasty curveball, 12-6 movement (thrown for 40% strikes in his debut) 0 walks no earned runs btw, only 2 hits… did I find a gem on the waivers before most or is he a stream option at best

Let’s give a shout out to Aaron Nola. He officially eliminated my season in my h2h playoffs. He has done one helluva job this year dragging down my ratios all year long. He has had one crappy year despite what his fip and underlying numbers look like. You would think it would normalize eventually. The only thing normal is him continuing to disappoint.

Keeper league 16 team 5×5 OBP. In the playoffs so going all in.

Drop Brujan? I was being optimistic about a September call-up since I could use steals but perhaps it’s not happening…

For context if I dropped him I’d stream pitchers/replace injuries (not anyone specific on the wire I’m targeting).

Thoughts?

Thanks! And if you had to choose a fourth?

It’s H2H and I had a couple early week blowups so I’m mainly just hunting wins and Ks at this point. Our categories are K, W, L, SVHD, ERA, WHIP and K/9. I’ve locked up SVHD and have very little chance of catching up in ERA and WHIP unless the other owner has a blowup. So higher upside guys (like Patino) is probably the play.

Happy National Blueberry Popsicle Day… I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had a blueberry popsicle; might need to find one today.

Anyway, few ones i could use some help with:

1.) I have Stassi as my C & have just set-&-forget him, but he’s just not been that good. Would you drop him for any of the below or just hold:
– Vazquez
– Alfaro
– E. Diaz
– Keibert Ruiz

2.) I’ve been holding Edward Cabrera in my “NA” slot, but Yahoo has officially removed the “NA” tag so i need to move him to my bench & drop someone or drop him. Is he worth holding?

3.) any of these “IL’d” guys worth stashing (I have 3 IL spots)?
– Kyle Lewis
– Greg Holland
– Nick Anderson

Roster:
12-team, 6×6 (OPS/QS), H2H, Redraft league

C: Stassi
1B: Freeman
2B: Altuve
3B: Arenado
SS: Story
IF: W. Franco

Are you dropping Maeda? I don’t believe the 9-12 month thing is worth stashing. I have him for $1 for the next three years, but to me, he won’t be effective until 2023. We have five IL slots because of COVID, but it may go down to the normal two. I know Maeda says he can tolerate pain, which is why he says he probably hasn’t had surgery for awhile, but he’s not worth a stash. I don’t trust arms in the recovery process.

I also agree with your recap about Rodon. Doesn’t look like he will be allowed to go deep and get the QS to keep him fresh for playoffs. His velo didn’t too 94-95 last night as it did earlier in the year too.

In what order would you take Morton or Wainwright over Rodon – if you would at all – for the stretch run with QS and good ratios being the goal?

What do you think happened to Wheeler BTW? Sometimes I think Girardi let’s him go an inning or two longer than he should. It seems to be when the ERA/WHIP take hits and he loses what would’ve been a QS.

He’s been a surprisingly bad investment of my 3rd round pick this home. Now, I’m torn between wanting him to go off for the end-of-season push and hoping he doesn’t do TOO much so I can get him cheap next year. Maybe with football rearing its ugly head, I can has both?

It’s a miracle! Mondesi is back! We should enjoy the run while we can. I know I will! Since Alex Reyes lose his closer role for the time being, is he worth holding? Could pick up Gallegos, Romano or Ottovino. Thanks for your hard work!

Am alive with the sound of Mondesi!

a. ‘Member 90s women’s tennis great Aranxta Sanchez? She’s selling her house because stringing tennis racquets, being #1 and giving tennis lessons alone don’t pay the bills.

b. Marx Brothers quote of the day for September 2, 2021

‘Time wounds all heels.’

Groucho

Go West

c. Random Reggie Jackson quote of the day for September 2, 2021

Reggie moved on to his career with the Yankees, describing the World Series game against the Los Angeles Dodgers where he earned a nickname that followed him through his career — and even into his Twitter username.

According to Reggie, during a late-season October game, he hit three home runs off three pitchers and, afterward, teammate Thurman Munson told the press they should be interviewing ‘Mr. October. It was his game.’

Cheers,

Grey!

I know, could be quote of the season!

Aranxta earned 60M during her career but her father and brother Mr Bungled her finances and left her broke on bad investments (prolly strippers and coke, right?). All the money is gone, so she’s selling her house to make some scratch. Not good, sounds like a Spanish version of the Mike Tyson story – La Historia como fue la del Miguel Tyson!, right?

Cheers,

It seemed like Mondesi was a late addition to the line up, but I think I just missed the 10 AM update about him.
So I’m currently missing 20% of his homers and 50% of his steals. Maybe his September antics will make it all worthwhile.
