With Eugenio Suarez apparently the new Reds shortstop after they tried and failed to acquire every garbage shortstop this offseason, Jonathan India has been added to the top 20 3rd basemen. Now…we dance! *long involved Bollywood dance with me somehow sitting on a floating carpet* Yelling into the distance, “I love you, Pashmina!” Was about time that I gave India his due. What, am I British now? My teeth would tell you no, but my love for Olivia Colman and Earl Grey would tell you yes. Which ya gonna believe? I just recently discovered India, while standing in The Bahamas and saying, “Hey, cool, this is America and who wants to open a casino?” Was talking to Podcaster Ralph, who knows a thing or two about prospects, and he gassed my head up on Jonathan India, and I think he can now go 40/10/.260. Then, we deflated ourselves back to earth, and realism took us south, and now I’m in Sri Lanka. “Sri Lanka is better than a cup of Sanka!” That’s me just before getting dirty looks in Sri Lanka. India is a pull-heavy, fly ball hitter. How’s that sound in Cincy? Seriously, take a moment and think about it. You see how I came away with a 40/10/.260 line? Gonna put him down for realistic projections in the top 20 3rd basemen, but looking for a guy who could be 12-team mixed league relevant by May? Look no further than India, Magellan. For now, if your starter is out, outsource to India. Anyway, here’s what else I saw in spring training for 2021 fantasy baseball:

Carlos Carrasco – Hamstring tear.  Carrasco was never going to pitch a full season, and as long as it’s not an arm injury…Hahahahaha lying to myself is grand! This sucks, and I dropped him out of the top 100 starters. His projections are updated too. Conservatively, expecting a return around “just after the All-Star Break.” That will be the shot in the arm all my teams need, assuming I haven’t shot myself somewhere else after needing to start guys like Logan Webb to replace Carrasco. Haha, someone please hold me.

Drew Pomeranz – Dealing with forearm tightness. The devil is in the details and that devil is nicknamed Pagan, and I’m signing him up late in all my leagues. Padres are going to have a lot of saves chances — wish it was easier to know who the closer was going to be. Mark Melancon can’t really do anything but close games, but he’s also very, very bad. He could be in line, though. Pagan is best of healthy options, so yeah. The top 500 has been updated.

Danny Santana – Dealing with a foot infection. “I’m booked through June of 2046.” That’s Dr. Scholl’s. Someone get that guy some assistance! I removed Danny Santana from the top 20 1st basemen. Writing’s on the wall, and it says, “Danny Santana isn’t getting any real ABs this year.”

Shogo Akiyama – Hamstring injury will knock him out a few weeks, and even then he’s no fo’ Shogo. Was updated in the top 100 outfielders.

Kris Bubic – Was sent down, because the Royals don’t need a 5th starter for a few. Now you have to ask yourself if you care. Then you have to answer that you don’t.

Bobby Witt Jr. – Was sent down to Low-A. Looks like we’re gonna have to wait a little while longer to see the Whit to Witt relay. Prior to some random helium filling the Witt narrative, no one thought Witt would be up until 2022. That would still be my guess. Yes, that means I’m saying a baseball GM is lying by saying Witt is in immediate plans. Crazy, right?

Will Smith – Dave Roberts said Austin Barnes and Will Smith would share playing time. Sounds more like Dave Roberts is Jada Pinkett and Austin Barnes is August Alsina. Snap! Literally no one gets that snap, it’s not just you. Any hoo! I lowered Smith in the top 20 catchers, and I’d absolutely draft him now, just not until around pick 200.

Framber Valdez – Surgery was not recommended for Framber, but it sounds like it went like this: “Really think you need surgery.” “Are you sure?” “Yes.” “Really?” “Yes.” Then, forty-five minutes later of this same back-and-forth, the doctor said, “Well, maybe not.” Framber got up and ran out of the office. Honestly, I don’t know what to do with Framber and his draft spot. The sensible thing is to not draft him, so I’m gonna go sensible here, pardners and five her’dners. I moved him into the top 100 starters, and around where I wouldn’t draft him in 12-team leagues. If it’s any consolation, Dusty said Framber is recovering well, citing the very scientific fact that Framber has Predator blood, while using the word “predator” in a positive context for the first time since 1987.

Ramon Laureano – Went for an MRI on his side and his side was like, “Yo, I got you.” Then Ramon was like, “As in that’s not good or…?” Then his side was like, “I’m gonna let the doctor take it from here,” and the doctor said Laureano should be fine for opening week of the season.

Zach Eflin – Dealing with some back issues. Not back issues of Men’s Health, but it’s related.

Scott Kingery – Can’t ostrich my head into the sand any longer. Time to face facts. At best, Kingery’s going to be in a timeshare with ODB. At worst, he’s going to be out of a job. In my top 20 2nd basemen, I lowered Kingery’s rank and projections. Sorry, sucks to do this late on you, but it had to be done.

Jon BertiMarlins are once again screwing Berti out of an everyday job. Someone should hook Berti and Garrett Hampson up. The Thelma & Louise of expectations with no results. In my top 20 2nd basemen, I lowered Berti’s rank and projections.

Willie Calhoun – Headed to the IL with a sore groin to start the year, and he was moved in the top 100 outfielders. His groin can’t seem to get out of Willie’s way.

Josh Jung – Will miss 6-to-8 weeks with a stress fracture in his foot. Jung, man, no need to be bruised. He was removed from the top 500.

Akil Baddoo – Rule 5 guy that is going to make the Tigers’ Opening Day roster. Previously, Akil Baddoo was known for large head scarves and cleaning up at the Soul Train awards. His numbers also look like they could be goofy bad, no matter what he’s doing in Spring Training. We’re talking like 3/3/.190 type projections.

Hunter Harvey – Hit the 60-day IL. Woof, that dog don’t Hunter. In my top 500, I took Harvey way down, and boosted Tanner Scott a skosh. I briefly looked at Cesar Valdez and was like nah.

Alex Wood – Having an ablation on his back. I had a cousin who married my other cousin, they were from the Ablation Trail. Lovely couple. Aaron Sanchez and Logan Webb could be in the rotation to start the year, but an ablation is supposably only a week or two process, so I haven’t adjusted my Wood, uh, ranking in the top 100 starters.

Nate Pearson – Suffered a setback with his groin. Damn, from punchouts to punched in. Pearson’s gone pear-shaped. The following only partially makes sense and don’t try to figure out what part. Pearson’s still in my very late 12-team mixed league pitchers to draft in the top 80 starters. Yes, I’d simply put him in my IL slot. It’s not like he was pitching 200 IP this year anyway.

Oscar Mercado – Optioned to the alternate camp. When you can’t make Cleveland’s outfield, you really can’t be trusted in any fantasy league. They want Amed Rosario over Mercado in the outfield. That’s like wanting Woody Allen to babysit. Mercado has become the AL’s Lewis Brinson. I will call him Grandpa AL Lewis. In the top 100 outfielders, Mercado has been updated.

    Hey guys and one girl,

    There’s three spots left in tomorrow night’s $100 Beat Donkey’s Teeth In Best Ball Auction at the NFBC with myself, Son, BDon and Rotowan. Here’s the details:

    This is a 12 team best ball points league. The auction will take place Tuesday night, 3/23 at 7:30pm ET. The auction will be used to draft each team’s 23 player starting lineup and will be followed by a 27 round slow draft with a 1 hour clock to draft benches.

    I’ll up the stakes and give anyone who finishes ahead of me a spot in next year’s RazzSlam.

    If you’re interested and you reside in an eligible state, go ahead and register through this link: https://nfc.shgn.com/signup/baseball/DonkeyT

    Good Luck!

    Grey! Why the Akil hate haha. You don’t think there’s any power/speed potential there? He doesn’t have a tonne of competition for playing time there and I know it’s just spring training but the guy can fly and has some decent power. I’m not planning on picking him up yet, just someone in going watch

      Fister!

      Nice team, I love it. Wouldn’t except anything less from your teams. My skinny.

      1. Love the SP!! That will be crucial in H2H to match up the favorable 2-starts to max out on points (one) and winning the H2H matchup (two). So, you get a B+ for the pitching.
      2. Love the hitting more in points and H2H. Only question could be Hiura and the batting average but also could be great. Who knows for sure? You get an A- on the hitting side. Well-balanced team, good average, good power and speed with Mondesi. How to work him into the lineup will be a challenge I guess. A-=having 7 of the top 20 in your lineup.
      3. RP is the very top, don’t know about other teams. Still if they are healthy all year, A for the RP.
      4. Bench is fantastic too.

      The team is really good.

      Cheers,

      • Fister Furbush says:

        Grey- The CBS draft rankings are very different from other sites. I drafted Mondesi with the 172nd pick…it’s not a keeper league. So I’ll take that as a compliment haha.

    1. Kenny Kuhn, born March 20, 1937

    ‘Hank Greenberg, the Indians’ general manager, called the 18-year-old shortstop ‘the finest young infielder I’ve seen in a long time.'”

    Columnist C. Ray Hall in the Courier Journal (07/16/2010, ‘Kenny Kuhn, four-sport star at Male in 1950s, dies at 73 in Utah’)

    2. Manny Sanguillen, born March 21, 1944

    ‘The way to fool Manny Sanguillen is to throw him right down the middle. He’ll hit anything, but a perfect pitch.’

    Philadelphia Phillies Batting Coach Billy DeMars (1978)

    3. Aaron Hill, born March 21, 1982

    ‘I saw this guy (Aaron Hill) in Toronto, and he’s really good. I was surprised when, in his last year in Toronto, he had a down year. I was surprised because when I saw him, he could really hit. He never missed a fastball. He’s really quick inside. And now he’s also staying back well enough where he’s also hitting offspeed pitches. But it doesn’t surprise me — this is a really good hitter.’

    Milwaukee Brewers Manager Ron Roenicke on MLB.com (Steve Gilbert, 06/30/2012, ‘Hill first with two cycles in a season since ’31’, Link)

    4. Joe Medwick, died March 21, 1975

    c. MLB quote of the day for March 22, 2021

    1. Ramon Martinez, born March 22, 1968

    ‘(Ramon) Martinez tied for second in the NL’s strikeout race with 223 K’s in 234 innings. The poker-faced 22-year-old throws pure gas with a herky-jerky delivery that’ll keep him successful for many years.’

    Inside Sports, February 1991

    2. Ike Davis, born March 21, 1987

    ‘I don’t think I’ve seen a guy, pound for pound, with more pop than he’s got… It’s just a matter of him getting his reps in, seeing the league a couple times, and getting comfortable. He showed me enough last year to impress me. He’s very slick at first, a well-rounded ballplayer. If he connects, the ball will hit the Grand Canyon.’

    Chipper Jones on NYDailyNews.com (Andy Martino, 02/27/2011, ‘Chipper Jones’ State of the East’, Source)

    3. Dallas Green, died March 21, 2017

            Texas is a mess, having Whote even play 1st yesterday to try and get him a.b.’s. What a joke.

  8. Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
    (link)

    20 teamer roto keep 6-9 with OPS/XBH/QS/holds added. have this, going hitter here with this pick. kept these already:
    C
    1B (vaughn possibly eventually, maybe not though this year)
    2B
    3B vlad (1B)
    SS treat
    OF (3): gallo
    – alvarez
    util (1)
    max DL, 2 NA slots (vaughn can go into one till he’s playing)
    SP (1250 innings so 6 work or 7, room for 3 BN hitters if 6, albeit more SP is best either way)
    – lynn
    – glasnow
    – luzardo
    RP (max 5)

    for this exact build go which of these:
    – semien (not many steals guys out here that aren’t terrible in other stuff, hitting 2nd at TOR, wont sink the average nor OPS, it’s mostly about if treat is enough for steals for a 20 nearly by himself, which might be close, or not),
    – schwarber (rater says him in OPS leagues here),
    – soler
    – k.lewis (your rankings say this here, but for my build maybe not)
    – hosmer (this clears up the 1B till vaughn is up issue, cron/tellez/cactus jesus levels after him)
    – v.robles (this cleans up the steals for rest of roster, but he’s pretty bad in OPS outside of
    that)
    – cronenworth

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      some others: winker, brantley, santander, a-dick, leody, straw (could shoot for steals on one of these latter 2 later)

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      I’d just go by the OPS rankings, personally. I wouldn’t severely jump a higher rated guy just for steals. You can fill that in at 2B or back end of OF.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        oh yeah outside of possibly cronenworth (who’s NOT loved by OPS rater) the 2B options i’d be waiting on: edman, fletcher, solak and the like. some steals on those too.

    Hi All – Selected my primary team (5×5 12-team 2 Catcher league) this weekend and looking for some feedback. But before I list my players, a couple of notes:

    1) This is an auction league. The rest of the managers went overboard on buying top talent. Instead of adjusting, I held to my values and as a result, have a team with no ‘first rounders’ but a handful of second third and fourth rounders. In a league this shallow, is that a mistake?

    2) I have 4 White Sox hitters – too much of a concentration on one team?

    3) Without further ado, below is my team and related auction values. All comments welcome.

    C- Will Smith $6
    C- Ramos $2
    1B – Olson $16
    2B – Hampson $1
    3B – Moncada $12
    SS – Anderson $18
    CI – Gimenez $3
    MI – Semien – $8
    OF – Robert $22
    OF – Eloy $18
    OF – Blackmon $15
    OF – Conforto $14
    OF – Lewis $7
    U – Yordan A. $12
    SP – Ryu $16
    SP – Snell $19
    SP – Maeda $17
    SP – Gaussman $10
    SP – Urias $10
    SP – Pablo Lopez $9
    SP – Ed Rod $4
    RP – Rodriguez $5
    RP – Pomeranz $6
    RP – Montero $10
    R – Tanner Scott
    R – Kikuchi
    R – Yimi Garcia
    R – Dunning
    R – Jorge Polanco
    R – Taveras

    4) Last Question – Is India worth picking up over anyone on my team?

    Thanks all.

      1. It’s doable

      2. Nah

      3. Your pitching is stronger than your hitting, but your hitting isn’t awful…You look low on power, which isn’t great, but fixable in season

      4. Yimi

      Means is probably the best pitcher of the bunch but division and park are just about as bad as can be. Urquidy is the best bet to lead be like a very useful SP3. Paxton is your upside play. Velo is good, has a good situation, but you could wake up to a forearm tightness headline any day.

    Brendan Rodgers out for at least a month with that hammy. He’s just one of those guys who will never see his potential due to one thing or another. He’ll become a Yankee when he’s 30, his 35 HR’s and everyone will be like “why did nobody want this guy?”

    Another great post

    Kingery and Berti were both late round 2b targets of mine in Yahoo leagues, with both of them looking more like schmohawks now, what about a little more love for Ty France? He seems to be hitting out of the 2 hole (hehe) regularly, and plays all around the field to get everyday at bats.

    Also, the sawx could use a 2b, imagine if they traded for France already having Franchy?!?!
    Vive la France!

      France is great for a day or two in-season until you drop him for someone better — for now, he’s fine tho

      Your hitting looks solid, maybe a tad low on Ks, as in too many of them…Moncada, Olson, Acuna, Moore, Grisham…Lots of Ks…I like the pitching…Switch Nola out for Abreu and it would be perfect

        Hey….what about this for a Glossary submission…..Major Bag Alert!…..thinking maybe say anytime a player steals 2 or more bags a game while heavily under the influence of drugs!

    Feel like my hitting is stupid. Maybe a little light on speed, but I have to check out the other teams; other than the ones with Turner or Mondesi, I feel like I’m good. Have a lot of question marks as far as health, but I love my bench. Feel like I have a lot of trade pieces if I find in-season I need to bump up my speed or go for a top-flight SP. And great keeper options for next year as well. The only player I got sniped on was Freddy Peralta, but that allowed me to take a shot on Ohtani in the last round. I wasn’t gonna reach on him, but I couldn’t let him go undrafted. Was planning on punting Saves, but good ratio relievers were still there at spots where I didn’t have defined targets, so I ended up with some potential Saves guys as well.
    Let me have it!

      Stupid good, but yeah a little light on speed…Laurano or someone like that over Giancarlo would’ve been better…But in OPS league it’s understandable and I wouldn’t change anything…Your pitching is a mess, why didn’t you draft starters?

            I really am too. I agree there isnt too much of a diff numbers wise btw alonso and belli. considering the injury risk and loaded lineup hes in may not be asked to do as much.

            • ROTO OVERLORD says:
              (link)

              I could go Alonso and 3 starters and literally not have to draft a pitcher for like 13 rounds, or go top heavy (story, belli, cole, and Gio) and take 3 1st round guys in first 3 rounds, but then I get no picks until round 4. The part that scares me is that story has no protection and could be traded and become devalued, his road numbers arent anything special/worthy of a 1st rounder

      Thanks, and agreed!

      You look solid on power and speed, but you look low on AVG…Devers is gonna have to hit .325 to help you — not a bad hitting team tho! I like it!

      Your pitching looks great, rock solid…Not sure how you got so good of a pitching team, but I’d guess that’s why your hitting looks suspect at times

    finished my auction saturday in my 10 team, 6 x 6 (OBP & QS) keep 12, with $5 bump every year you keep a player. We had auction on a site that enabled trades during auction that involved auction $$$. $260 budget overall, 3 owners had less than $60 left after keepers. I started with Flaherty $13, and Gray $8 as keepers, and added:
    Ryu $13 (Traded Grisham and $15 draft $)
    Sixto $3 (Traded $15 draft $)
    Musgrove $23
    Eflin $14
    Gonsolin $6
    May $6
    Gore $1

    My hitting is stacked, Alonso, Devers, Bogaerts, Bichette, Bregman, Acuna, Soto, Robert.
    Have Vaughn at $1, was offered choice of Pab Lopez $13, Urquidy $14, or Morton $16 for him.
    Is my SP strong enough as is or should I accept offer, and if so, which SP should I ask for?

    My hitting is stacked because of this site, all listed above I got for $1 before they hit MLB. Have $1 Franco on bench as well. Thank you!

    10 Team AL 5×5 ( strikeouts and net runs ( Runs minus HR)

    Hey Grey. Hope your doing well. I’m in a keeper league holding tatis yelich degrom mondesi and Lewis. The draft is obviously a little watered down.

    Grey,

    I need your ruling on a potential collusion case in my keeper league.

    Team A is in rebuild mode and has the most money to spend in auction and can out bid anyone to get certain players that Team B wants.

    Team B wants these certain players and has a handshake agreement with Team A to trade for them after the auction draft.

    What are your thoughts? If it is collusion what should the punishment be? I was thinking chest wax or nose hair removal? I will listen to ideas.

    Thanks, Best of luck!

    Hey bud hope is well with ya and that goes for the rest of the razzers and very fine people here. Been enjoying all the material you guys throw out here teaching me the ways to fantasyland. From what I have learned from this site I has developed a fine hatred of deafting SP. I am in a OBP league with svs + holds and have been thinking how I dont even want to draft a starter till pick 70+. There is just soo many juicey bats I want!!! When i was listening to ur podcast It filled me with a fearlessness of not drafting a starter.. I will find them! They always appear!

    Also talk me out of drafting stanton if he us available around 100… THE UPSIDE!!#3;27#;

    Another one for your thoughts/input. I know I deviated a bit from selecting certain pitchers early but seemed to be way the draft was going. Tried to follow the rankings for my hitting when selecting hitters:

    c –
    1B – Olson
    2b- Dylan Moore
    ss- Tatis
    3B – Suarez
    ci – Ke’Bryan Hayes
    mi –

    util – Franmil Reyes

    sp – Darvish, Maeda, Bundy, Bassitt
    ro – Chapman, Nick Anderson

    What you think of this creation?? Thanks

    • Earl says:

      I am trying to determine if I should go hitter/hitter with upcoming 2 picks or pitcher and hitter or what.

      Hitter choices might be something like Leody Tavares, Christian Walker, Clint Frazier, Did Gregorius or catcher with D’arnaud, Vazquez, Garver.

      Pitcher might be Richard Rodriquez or Greg Holland for 3rd closer or for starters Eflin, James Paxton, Eliser Hernadez.

      Thanks again for any thoughts/help!

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Clint, Elieser, Eflin

        • Earl says:
          (link)

          should I be worried about my team speed as that is maybe why I was thinking Tavares or do you think he could last for few more rounds?

          And you like Clint over Walker for maybe some power? your ranking do perhaps favour Clint by a bit.

          Thanks Mr. Grey!

    I totally missed out on that make-or-break tier of SP (Urias – Lopez) but hopefully Gray and Sanchez will be good replacements. SP seems kind of light with Eovaldi as my SP6….? Top available guys are Valdez (Hou), Gore (SD), Cease (CWS), Keller (Pit). Should I drop Anderson (MIA) for one of these guys? (Plenty of comparable hitters on the wire I think.)

    Thanks!

      Yes, drop Anderson for likely a streamer once the season starts…Can stash Framber now, so you IL him then grab someone once that happens…Love your hitting and pitching, btw…Surprised you were able to get that good of a hitting team with 3 aces on pitching

        Thanks Grey! Used your ranks, of course! Also quite happy with this lineup. :-)

        That sounds like the right course of action, hopefully signing up and stashing Framber….

        And hopefully Gray will be back soon. Saw you got him in Tout.

        Have a great start to the week!

    In addition to the standard 5 batting categories, my league counts Ks, OPS and ABs… I’m not sure if Adalberto is a top 20 player in my format. Just wanted your thoughts. My plan with my first 2 picks after my 3 keepers is to do the same strategy as I did last year and target Adalberto and a pure power hitter (like Albombso or Yordan) – but I’m rethinking that based on the format.

      Grey says:

      Pure power hitter makes more sense in an OPS league

    I am trying to determine if I should go hitter/hitter with upcoming 2 picks or pitcher and hitter or what.

    Hitter choices might be something like Leody Tavares, Christian Walker, Clint Frazier, Did Gregorius or catcher with D’arnaud, Vazquez, Garver.

    Pitcher might be Richard Rodriquez or Greg Holland for 3rd closer or for starters Eflin, James Paxton, Eliser Hernadez.

    Thanks again for any thoughts/help!

  40. Final prep for my home league bloodbath, got the #3 pick in a 12 team redraft, roto format. Looking forward to getting after it, confident after being battle tested with two 50 rounders under my belt. Let’s go!

    Morning Grey! Apologies in advance for a long winded keeper question, but appreciate your thoughts!

    I am in a brand new 10-team roto (5×5) snake draft keeper league. We will hold a normal snake draft this year, and then prior to the 2022 season every team can distribute a total of 20 contract years to as few or as many players as they wish on their roster, individual contracts can be any length as long as the total for the team equals 20. Every contract then simply depreciates by one year after each following season. So, in a nutshell, whichever superstar studs you have on roster coming out of this 2021 season, you will probably keep each of those guys for the following 2 to 5 years (however long you choose). Hope that explains it in a nutshell.

    Question 1) I have the #5 pick. I am assuming the top 4 will be Acuna, Tatis, Soto and Betts. Assuming that is the case Grey, who would you roll with at #5? Would you go with Trout who you have 5 in your overall ranks, or bypass for a Story or Turner or othertype? Although I have 0 idea of who will be available to me in round 2, based on Yahoo adp I do think I will be able so score one of Lindor, Bellinger, Bichette or at worst Bryce with my 2nd pick.

    Question 2) With this format, are there any guys in particular that you would bump way up or way down in your rankings?

    Thanks Grey!

    Hey Grey!

    I made it to Canada too late, the sculptures were gone :)

    I drafted 7 of 10 in an 8×8 category league. This is a non-keeper, no idea how I got the first four bats that I did… FTJ fell to me at 7, I was planning on taking Yeli there! This league allows 100 moves all year, so I spent all my bench spots on pitching so I can save streaming for the playoffs.
    Any suggestions as far as what I could have done differently? These picks are in order from 1-32

    hit: R, HR, RBI, TB, K , SB, AVG, OPS
    pit: QS, W, L, SV, H, K, ERA, WHIP

    Fernando Tatis Jr.

    The Texas bullpen sitiation keeps getting worse. Hernandez who I thought may close is out and now leclerc has an elbow problem. Other guys are starting on the IL and haven’t even thrown in spring yet. Is Kennedy the guy to own there? He was bad last year but was decent in kc the year before. I know they arent going to win a lot of games, but saves are a category. Hernandez has a “mild” ucl strain. What does that mean?

      That means just stay far away from the Texas bullpen.

    Grey,

    Happy Monday and thank you for everything you do! The fantasy world would be l lost without your guidance and help.

    Yahoo, h2h, 6×5, including ops.

    I just completed my draft yesterday and afterwards I was sent a trade offer. His Olson for my Rizzo. I know you have Olson rated higher in your personal rankings; however, when I reviewed Razzball’s Yahoo ops rankings Rizzo is ranked above Olson by $5, and according to the Razzball trade tool Rizzo is ranked above Olson by $6.

    Who would you rather have in a 6×5, including ops league?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Rizzo

      • Charlie says:
        (link)

        Thanks!

        Ha, I was secretly hoping you’d say Olson. Like you, I have a thing for him despite last year’s mess. All of his under numbers last year scream for a regression to the norm. I have plenty of players (Acuna, Trout, Yelich, Bregman) that can offset his average, but I also have some players (JRam, Mondesi, Albies) who will bring down my team average as well. Sorry, I should have included my team in my initial post. Seeing my team, would you still go with Rizzo?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I love Olson, you know I do…If I were drafting, I’d take Olson, but I’d go by Rudy’s OPS

          • Charlie says:
            (link)

            Lol this is the downside of having too many talented and knowledgeable people working for Razzball. My heart says Olson after reading your Olson love, but my brain says Rizzo based on Rudy’s objective OPS rankings.

            I’m really torn and not sure what to do. Lol blah.

    Nice updates. Carrasco going down kills me. Kills me dang it!

    I could use the forums help, the more the merrier, on a trade proposal. It’s in a 10 team dynasty league. We use OPS and QS. No average for hitters.

    Get to keep 10 players.

    My Ian Anderson and Wander Franco

    for

    His Freddie Freeman, Victor Robles and Trevor Larnarch.

    Wander is the killer here. I feel like could be trading away an MVP but will be getting Freeman. I have Rizzo and Torkelson so might not need Freeman?

    Morning Grey,
    I kind of want to grab Pagan. Not in a creepy sexual way. Maybe Im related to Framber and have some of his “predator” blood pulsing through my veins. Just not sure if there is anyone that I could drop. My bench bats are M.Sano and M.Kepler. Id like to keep Sano as I have Hosmer at 1B and not 100% sold on his repeat. As far as pitchers go, I have Yarbrough, Neris, T.Rogers as the most droppable. Is Pagan worth dropping one of these? Or is it still too speculative at this point.

    Back end of rotation in a 17tm. Dropping pivetta for trevor rogers is a no brainer but how much faab($5 of $100) also having Shoemaker and Dobnak doesn’t feel very sane. Came up with some options.
    Also are we ok with caleb smith as an sp5?.

    -Drop Shoemaker for T.Rainey for sagnof? (Zero faith in hand keeping that job)
    – Drop Dobnak for India?
    – Drop either for this Akil Badoo guy who is killing it in Detroit??

    Grey, just saw Kirby Yates is out with an injury that normally keeps pitchers out 2 months.

    I need to replace him, as I’m short any backup closers. Is Romano the guy? In a $100 FAAB league, what’s the appropriate bid?

    Some guy name Frankoff no hitting the A’s with 5 BB in 4. Now there’s a name you gotta be careful about throwing around. My old friend Philly Joe Sharky, who went by Shark liked to tell the story of when his friend got arrested for yelling, “Shark!” all up and down the Jersey Shore looking for him one summer. Caused a huge panic.

    Say what you will about Dusty Baker as a manager, but the dude is a classic. One of the best people persons in the game. Predator blood is vintage Dusty. Took a share of Valdez very late in an NFBC online champ.

    I have one player on every team I’ve drafted: Jose Alvarado. Hopefully he’s at least in the committee.

    Something came up with regard to Bobby Witt Jr and Wander Franco that I had forgotten. Bryce Harper and Mike Trout both debuted on the same day in April.

    I was wrong about one thing early on this season. I thought Quantril would get the 5th spot for the Clevelands. He was definitely the front runner, but he choked the spring. Logan Allen on the other hand went from bad body fading prospect to the latest in the Indians reclamation projects. He hasn’t been given the role but definitely has pitched the best of anybody in the contest.

    Curt Cassali, former Reds catcher working in Giants camp, said Logan Webb’s change up is every bit as good, if not BETTER, than Luis Castillo. Hmmm.

    • OaktownSteve says:

      This guy Ka’ai Tom is tearing it up for the A’s. There are potentially some AB’s to be had in the A’s OF/DH.

          Great name.

      • OaktownSteve says:
        (link)

        Here’s another under the radar thing that seems like it’s really going to happen. Khris Davis is going to hit clean up for the Rangers. The A’s said he hasn’t been injured, but he was down for awhile with a hip thing and never looked right. Started out spring looking awful but hit a bunch of HRs on the back field and then two in an A game last week. If you’re in a deep league and looking for a power gamble going basically undrafted, there are definitely worse places to look. Zombino candidate.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Maybe Zombino, but I also don’t buy these sluggers who go to zero coming back…Long line of guys like him just sucking into oblivion

          The Rangers are going to be really, really bad. Really.

          • OaktownSteve says:
            (link)

            Their line up could be ok I think Dahl was a good get. IKF is a good baller. Gallo will Gallo. Solek looks like he’s got some upside. I honestly could see Krush sneaking up on it. Guzman has had a good spring. Odor has had a good spring. I know it could also be a hot mess, but there are at least a few things that could come together for them offensively. Their rotation is…not deep. Their pen is largely bull.

            • Big Magoo

              Big Magoo says:
              (link)

              If everything goes right for them, I can see something close to .500. But they can’t pitch at all, and Gallo’s the only hitter that they can depend on to do damage on a regular basis (and even that will come in bunches). Think 95-100 losses is much more likely.

          • Grey

            Grey says:

            Yes, really really bad

      Did you get my email in regard to my dead cell phone? Sorry that I was incommunicado yesterday. How’d the RCL draft go?

      • OaktownSteve says:
        (link)

        Yay! You’re alive. I didn’t get an email, but it’s probably my old address that mostly collects spam these days. I’ll go find it. The RCL draft was pretty bumpy. I had trouble with the draft interface and it ended up costing us in a few places. Only drafted two starters: Darvish and Robbie Ray. Wasn’t super happy with it to be honest. Here’s the squad:

        C: TBD
        1B: Vladdy
        2B: Lux
        3B: Moncada
        SS: Semien
        MI: Kim
        CI: Vaughn
        OF: Harper (again for us), Buxton, Mancini, Pham, Springer
        UTIL: Yordan

        P: Darvish, Jimmy Nelson (as promised), Alvarado, Fairbanks, Garrett, McGee, Pagan, Wittgren, Staumont

        RES: Streamer, Robbie Ray/Future Streamer, and Kelenic. Have an extra bat so can probably look for a trade partner if Kelenic makes the team out of spring.

        • OaktownSteve says:
          (link)

          Maybe trade to upgrade MI if Kim looks over matched or squeezed for ABs.

        • Big Magoo

          Big Magoo says:
          (link)

          I like the pitching, outfield, and Yordan. Corner infield looks solid too. Might have to be on the lookout for MI help. Streaming is always a thing in this format, so no worries there.

          Btw, my new phone is supposed to arrive on Fri/Sat, so just drop an email if you want to chat

    Witt looks like he could be pretty special, but I’m not sure that he’ll have the immediate impact that an Acuna or a Soto had. Not surprised that they sent him down. Should get him some ABs at Double A or above to see if he’s truly ready.

    Mercado is a head scratcher. Wonder if he did something behind the scenes to piss the Indians brass off or if it’s purely performance related. I love ya Tito, but quit screwing around with my fantasy teams, will you?

    Hi Grey, looking forward to a new season, and thanks to your help I have won my big money league for the past two years! So this year our 12 team league looks like it will only be NINE teams this year, the others will return next year. So I know I won’t be taking any pitchers until the 6th round, any other general drafting advice for what looks to be all star teams for everyone… thanks!

    Good stuff grey

    Trevor story trade rumors aren’t scaring you off the Trevor ending story at all? I’m picking 12th in a 12 team 5×5 h2h and am considering Lindor over him

    At 12/13 am considering
    Story/ Lindor + Bellinger/Freeman/Yelich

    Or could do J Ram + Bellinger/Freeman/Yelich and get a shortstop later

    At 36/37 am considering drafting another 2 batters and waiting to 60/61 to get first SP. Ryu seems to be available at 60 usually

    Any thoughts? Thanks

    Hi Grey.

    Got huge into this site this year, really appreciate everything you and the rest of the guys do on here. Great mix of info and entertainment. I drafted in a 14-team 8×8 yahoo draft yesterday (hits, total bases and obp; losses, k’s and quality starts counted) H2H-One Win league, I had the 10th pick. Would appreciate any feedback/advice on the team. Thanks in advance! Love the site!

    C – C. Kelly
    1B – Bellinger
    2B – Muncy
    3B – Devers
    SS – Mondesi
    OF – W. Myers
    OF – F. Reyes
    OF – Laureano
    Util – Santander
    Bench – E. Escobar

    SP – Flaherty
    SP – Woodruff
    SP – S Gray
    SP – J Means
    RP – W. Smith
    RP – D. Castillo
    RP – C. Martin
    P – T. Mahle
    P – E. Hernandez
    Bench – T. Scott
    Bench – T. Antone
    Bench – F. Valdez

    I should mention we get one started at each position plus one utility. 4 SP’s, 3 RP’s and two general P’s.

    Also, I could move Framber to IL when it allows. Anyone you recommend grabbing??

    Thanks again.

      Thanks, appreciate it! Your pitching looks solid…You look low on saves, which is fine, especially in a QS league, and the SPs you have are guys I like…I’m not sure who to grab to replace Framber, I don’t know who’s available in your league…Another SP can’t hurt…Daulton Jefferies? I like the hitting too, but you look low on speed, which is fine in a total bases league

            Hi Grey. Happy Monday.

            One more quick question regarding the team I posted above. I assume Framber and Sonny Gray are going to start the season on IL, opening up two spots for me.

            Available on waivers currently are G. Canning, Caleb Smith, N. Pearson, D. Jeffries and Myles Straw. Would you pick up two pitchers? If so, which pitchers do you like? Or go one pitcher and Straw?

            Thank you!
