Joey Gallo, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo walk into a bar.  The bar says, “Ow.”  There should be an All-Star Game weekend festivity where Gallo, Judge and Giancarlo hit home runs and people guess how far it went, but they guess in miles.  “I’m gonna say that went 4.5 miles.”  “Ooh, sorry, there’s no such number as ‘point.’  You don’t win a house.”  Gallo doesn’t hit mammoth shots.  Mammoth shots hit home runs and say, “That was a Gallo shot.”  Have you seen one of his homers?  Picture a ball sailing about 550 feet and screaming, “Holy crap, how am I getting back home?”  Home run balls he hits call Uber after Gallo hits ’em.  So, I’m obviously a fan, and Beltre doesn’t even have a return date yet.  This might be one of those situations where Beltre is gone for another month and, even when he returns, Gallo just moves to the outfield.  It’s slightly ridiculous he’s available in so many leagues, and I’d remedy that.  Immediatemente.  That’s immediately in Spanish.  I did take 13 years of Spanish, after all.  You’re gracias.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Austin Hedges – On the team where I drafted Hedges, I have an 0-for-18 from Hedges, then I dropped him for Travis d’ohArmnooooo, who went 1-for-8, and he was gone for Sandy Leon, who went 0-for-3, and bye-bye to Alex Avila, who went 1-for-5 with a homer, but I dropped him too for Tony Wolters, who is hitting .500 on my team in 12 at-bats and who I’m now holding until prolly, I don’t know, tomorrow.  My point?  I should’ve just Ron Popeil’d my catcher and Set it and Forget It with Hedges, instead I’ve been picking my catcher scab and it has not worked out at all.

Cody Bellinger – I just gave you my Cody Bellinger fantasy.  It was written while keepin’ it hundred.

Mitch Moreland – There’s a chance here that Moreland is still not owned in leagues, because some of the people in fantasy leagues, between their drafts and the season starting, were playing freeze tag and it didn’t work out well for them.  They’re frozen with pigeons landing on them and doing poos, but if people aren’t frozen grab Moreland.

Yulieski Gurriel – Is he now going by Yuli?  If I were him, I would’ve changed my name to Yuliesnowboard.  Any hoo!  Gurriel has been hot recently, though legit not doing much but getting base-knocks, which I guess is enough.

Kolten Wong – I know I’m not the only one having this problem.  I go to waivers and I look for free agents.  I really need a middle infielder, but all I see is a bunch of corner infidels.  On one team, I’m currently rocking Mitch “Don’t Kill My Vibe” Moreland, Anthony “The Suck” Rendon, Torenado, Mini Donkey, Travis Phshaw, and Jose “Nearly As Sucky As Rendon” Abreu and every time I look at waivers there’s still more corner men, but middle infielders are like, “Um, well, I guess Wong’s playing.”

Hernan Perez – When Perez went off the other day, I was in a Consumer Value Store (CVS, to those not in the know).  I saw Perez was heating up right as an old lady asked me, “Sonny, could you help me get down a box of Wheat Thins?”  I was like, “I’m not Sonny Gray, and here!”  I threw the box at her while I was picking up Hernan Perez on my phone.  That’s how quick I need to react when players get hot.  How is Hernan still available in your leagues?  Don’t you need to get guys crazy fast?  I have a deal with Prospector Ralph (who did a great job covering for me this morning, because I had a friend in from Dubai).  When someone needs to be picked up, we text each other and I literally stop everything and grab guys.  This is Prospector Ralph the other day, “Cody Bellinger called up.”  Nothing else!  That’s it!  And I screeched to the side of the highway, and grabbed him in all my leagues.  Well, all leagues except the league I’m in with PR.

Ryon Healy – Okay, not hot, but I still have faith like Edward Norton in that movie I thought was about Billy Joel.

Taylor Motter – I almost made Motter the lede this week, but as I started doing a long string of “Yo Motter” jokes — Yo Motter is so fat her blood type is gravy! — I thought about how we want to highlight baseball skills and not Catskills.  I’m sorry, Motter, I never meant to hurt you.  I never meant to make you cry, but tonight, I’m cleanin’ out my light-power, light-speed composite.

Christian Arroyo – Here’s what I said previously about Arroyo, “This year, he led Triple-A with a .446 average, which was being bolstered, oh, just a tad, by his .481 BABIP.  He’s got little pop and less speed.  Man, where do the Giants find these guys?  It’s like Matt Duffy was traded away by the Giants, and, on his way out the door, he took a massive dump, and Sabean watered that for nine months and now they have Arroyo.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Tim Beckham – So hizzot it’s ridunkulous.  So hizzot I can’t even talk like a normal person.  I’m jibber-jabbering!

Amed Rosario – The other day Lenny Dykstra posted a video saying the Mets should call up Amed to spark their offense, and, for a guy that was likely on serious drugs and within a few hours of ending up in prison again, he was making sense.  The Mets need a spark.

David Peralta – You need to platoon him out when the D-Backs face lefties, because Peralta tends to sit vs. them, but he’s been good enough vs. righties that he’s worth owning.

Delino DeShields – The Dentist says, “Aaaaaaaahh…” and it’s less like “Aaaaaaaahh, that hurts really bad; don’t you have nitrous I can suck into my face,” and more like, “Aaaaaaaahh, all right let’s see something because I picked you back up.”

Michael Conforto – Now that Cespedes strained a hammy in one of his hundred legs, Conforto will be a starter for the foreseeable future.  If he makes good on his promise for the next, say two-three weeks, then Conforto will be one of those guys people look back on in September as someone they wished they owned.  If you can find room for him, do it, as Ben Stiller said in that awful movie.  No, not that awful one, the other awful one.  No, not the Billy Joel one with Edward Norton.

Kevin Pillar – I grabbed him a couple weeks ago when he was hot, and have held him because he’s stayed productive.  In a way, he’s set up shop on my team.  I guess, considering Pillar, he’s more become a statue of sorts.

Aaron Altherr – You know the place Parts Unknown?  No, of course you don’t!  It’s Parts Unknown!  It’s in the name!  But, with that in mind, for Reasons Unknown, the Phils sometimes play Saunders and Nava and not Altherr, but, like a fireman would say, the latter has been hot.

Jarrod Dyson – SAGNOF!

Scott Schebler – If you’ve been reading Razzball for a minute, which is actually a long time according to the Urban Dictionary, then you know Schebler was on a bunch of my deeper league teams last year because Steamer loved him for years.  Yeah, well, as you can imagine, I didn’t draft Schebler this year.  Fool me once shame on you!  Fool me twice–Wait, by not drafting him this year, I have been fooled twice, haven’t I?  What if you don’t know you’ve been fooled twice?  Is there a saying for this, George Bush?

Hector Neris – This is weird (not funny or interesting).  Neris is owned in 13% less leagues than Brad Brach.  I know there’s Joaquin Benoit in Philly, but there’s a commoner of the British empire in Baltimore that will definitely replace Brach.  I told you weird, but not funny or interesting.

Matt Bush – If you could read between the lines of my previous blurb, you’ll realize Bush is also owned in less leagues than Brach.  Oh em gee, I just realized something!  There’s lots of elderly women playing fantasy baseball and Brach reminds them of hard candies.  That might also be why Gausman is owned in so many leagues still, because their husbands have random cuts that they can’t explain and have wrapped themselves in gauze.  Wait again!  That might be why that woman in CVS said, “Wheat Thins–Did you say Hernan Perez is hot?!”

Shawn Kelley – The day before Koda Glover was injured, I put in a $30 FAAB bid on him.  Yeah, I won that bid, and now I’m out $30.  *pats self on back with sword*

Bud Norris – Appears locked into the Angels’ closer role.  Yes, that is as sad as it sounds.

J.J. Hoover – The Diamondbacks’ closer shituation is a total mess.  Hoover sounds like he sucks and/or blows, Rodney sounds like he gets no respect, and George of the Roses sounds like a B&W professional wrestler, which is good until you think about how wrestling wasn’t ‘cool’ until the 1980s and how freakin’ sad a 1950’s wrestler must be. George of the Roses probably chilled with George Reeves and they talked about how they wanted to commit suicide.  How depressing, nice to see you, now please leave.  I’d back up Rodney with Hoover, but I have no faith in this shituation.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – The Stream-o-Nator is willing to give Ryu another chance, and I don’t think it’s simply because the Stream-o-Nator is lonely and cuts pictures of people out of magazines and talks to them.

Ty Blach – I like Blach in NL-Only leagues, and the Stream-o-Nator likes him for his next start, like it enjoys talking to toll collectors for a few minutes until people start beeping.

SELL

Adrian Gonzalez – Most of my sells are about trading and ‘being a salesman at a car dealership and wheeling-slash-dealing.’  Um, yeah, in shallower leagues, A-Gon can likely be dropped.  Or maybe added to another trade as a sweetener, like how fructose is a sweetener that causes diabetes.

Chris Davis – Grey’s cleaning out his power 1st basemen composites!  Unlike A-Gon, I’d try to get something for Chris Davis, but I think the days of getting something you actually want in return might be over.  I don’t know, try it and let me know how it goes (don’t tell me).

Julio Teheran – Something’s wrong with Teheran.  Maybe it’s the Muslim ban.  Did his fastball get stuck in customs?  Asking for a friend, if I were friends with Teheran.  His fastball is way down, his Ks are bleh and his xFIP is 5.20.  Okay, trouble.  I wouldn’t sell Teheran for a ticket to see Danny Pintauro’s one man show, “I’m Now The Boss!” But I would explore options.

Well, two starts in a row against righties, do I run the risk of starting DeShields in a weekly lineup league, or do I run out somebody else?
Other options I have are Franco, Schoop, Souza, and Mazara (who’s just a piece of shizz lately.)
Also, would you consider dropping Mazara at this point for, say, a SChebler?

Do I need to make a major trade for a pitcher? What do you recommend doing with this team? Thanks!

10 team keeper, 6×6 roto – OBP, SLG, HR, RBI, R, SB and QS, IP, K, S, ERA, WHIP

200 GS limit. I’m currently 17/20 in QS and am currently 1st in ERA and WHIP…most other teams have at least 29 GS already…the teams with the best pitching have started 32+ games and have <50% QS rates, which have blown up their ERA/WHIP.

I'm 10th (last) in SLG and RBI, I'm 9th in HR, I'm 8th in R and SB.

In the past, bats are worth more than pitching in my league as the season goes on. On paper my bats are elite, but in reality, they haven't been. On paper, my pitching is mediocre at best, but in reality, I've been killing it.

My favorite comment from you was when you called out that dude who was crying about zimmer… he definitely keeps receipts lol!

I think maybe you should refund him a Zimmerman… Zim Zim Zimmerman Zimmer Zimmer man! (To the tune of row your boat)

Anyway I’m loving my lineup this year and was wondering if i could get ur help finding my perfect match for my last utility spot.

2b) turner
Ss) story
3b) lamb
Of)Harper, cruz, Stanton
Ut) benintendi

Currently roster piscotty and Peraza for that spot and have Dahl on IR who I think is perfect for it. Since I think I’m stacked on power and could use some speed

Anyway I’m sick of getting pissed on by piscotty and pooped on by Peraza… so next week should I start

Should I
1) go for gomez
2) dentist Delino who steals toothbrushes
3) ring my bell bellinger I’m a sucker for upside
4) continue to get pisscotyd or poorazad

Thanks man btw I’m screen shotting this in case you are wrong.

So I needed steals or homers today and since Rendon has been garbage I figured to swap out for the hot schmotato in Hernan Perez. Needless to say, I should’ve just kept Rendon.

Everyone should thank me cause apparently Rendon didn’t want to play for me and once I drop him the first game he has leads to his first homer. Thanks Rendon!

@Grey: This swap probably lost me the week. I am OK with it cause I have a feeling he just blew his whole load and now when I go to get him back on Tuesday, cause the people in my league are overly loyal to the players they drafted, he will pepper me next week with the 1/4s.

If I end up getting him back, I’m totally going to own him out of spite.

Hi Grey,

Would you drop one of Blach or Jaime to stash Kendrick? There are no other bats on FA that are getting PT, and I can risk a week with him not playing if it gives me a decent bat in another 7-10 days. Chances are that someone will pick up Kendrick very soon. However, by the time Kendrick comes off the DL, I should also have Joc and Freese back, or close to returning. I can always sit my SPs.

Thanks!

Next Two Starts (Favor Blach):
Jaime – NYM, @HOU
Blach – CIN, @CIN

NL-Only 10-TM H2H.

My current team:
CA – Realmuto
1B – GOLDY
2B – LeMahieu
3B – Franco
SS – Villar
INF – Solarte
OF – Pollock, JOC, Grichuk, Brinson
Util – Freese

RPs – Knebel, Montgomery, Rosenthal

@Grey: I’ve looked at Gift. He’d give me immediate help. Arroyo was dropped yesterday and will be a FA on Tuesday. They both would provide immediate help. However, once Freese is back, there’s only room for one in my lineup except for off days. I really don’t need Jaime’s start this week, so he’d go.

Thanks!

12 team daily roster moves we have a category for holds and a category for saves.

My current staff is: Bradley, Neris, Kelley, Giles, Bush, DeGrom, Maeda, Urias, Nova, Walker, Joe Ross and Vince Velazquez.

I was wondering who if anyone I should cut for Benoit? With Bradley having SP eligibility I can cut a starter if I want to grab Benoit. I’m thinking it’s either hold, or cut Kelley, Ross, Walker or Velazquez. Thoughts?

@The Harrow: i was watching the game, big time Dodger fan here. But after the Puig homer, Neris seemed to be on tilt. Bellinger turned on that inside one and smoked it. Damn he has such a sweet stroke. After that, Neris was totally shaken, threw a ball in the dirt, then JT sat on that inside heater and launched it halfway up the bleachers in left, which is pretty far. I think Neris just caught the bad side of momentum tonight. Benoit look good btw, his heater was explosive and his change was nasty…

C romine (or whoever is getting playing time, castro etc)

asked earlier, but galvis was taken less than hour after i typed it.
options: bour/s.smith/rosario/toles/leury/collins. smith/collins/toles/bour (or should be) righty side platooners only but this is for the BN spot so it’s more about production when they do play (and they do play most of the time).

Deez Nutz Gordon is absolutely killing me with his lack of steals – he’s not even trying when he’s on base either. He needs to start eating whatever AJ Pollock is eating.

@William Hung: possibly a managerial deal there. ARI’s guy has everybody stealing all the time. it’s awesome. MIA’s guy probably has been taking metheny lessons (not in bullpen usage though, nobody would ever attend that seminar, even monkeys throwing darts know better than metheny at bullpen usage in last 3 years. this isn’t even a joke, there’s an article somewhere proving random usage was better than metheny at bullpen usage in at least 2 out of last 3 years)

I hate pitchers.

We do 1 category for Saves+holds in the 5×5 roto 14-team league…along with K, WHIP, ERA and QS.

Starters are Kershaw, Maeda, Miley, Samardzjia, Shoemaker, and Wheeler (Musgrove is a Free Agent along with Weaver, Freeland, Boyd, H.Santiago, Andriese, and some other bums)

My RPs are Dellin Betances, Shawn Kelley, Bud Norris, Brandon Maurer. I probably only need 2 or 3. I ought to keep 7 starters but I’m thinking about only 5-6.

Who would your starting 9+1 bench have on it?

I’m starting Ryu since the matchup is good but…
Do I go for the category win and start either $-1.6 Ross vs. NYM or $-9.7 Rodriguez vs. CHC?
Leaning towards taking the risk with Ross and sitting Rodriguez. Thoughts?

So I’ve got a guy in the league that has been plagued by injuries and desperately needs pitching. Is my Chris Davis and Danny Duffy for his Daniel Murphy paying too much? It will greatly upgrade my 1B position and I see that both of my guys seem to be on the way down this season, Duffy’s velo is down and Davis not mashing as before. He has Bumgarner too so I may be able to get him and throw him in the DL for a later pay off. Thoughts? Its a H2H points league.

My bats have been struggling to start the year, so do you think I have enough solid pitching to trade one of my pitchers, maybe even Cueto, for another solid bat?
