“Thinking about how I could’ve had Jose Abreu three rounds after Pete Alonso,” is what I tell the man in the plane after I say I want to parachute from the plane without a parachute. “You have anything that burns hotter than 500 degrees?” Is what I ask the grill store employee as I put charcoal briquettes down my pants as I watch Jose Abreu hit six homers in one series. “Just seeing if I can chew glass, that’s all,” which is what I say to Cougs as I bite into a water glass while thinking about El Grande Dolor hitting .322 and four home runs in a row from Saturday until Sunday. “No, I’m not cutting onions, I’m ripping my fingernails out,” which is what I say to my reflection when I think about how Jose Abreu has 11 homers and Pete Alonso hasn’t played in four days and was moved down the lineup for Dom Smith. How’s everyone else doing, that’s nice. Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:

Reynaldo Lopez – 3 1/3 IP, 2 ER as he was activated from the IL. I ain’t down with new Star Wars, and don’t care about Rey-Lo.

Dylan Cease – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.13. It’s painful for me to dig in my heels that a pitcher isn’t pitching well, when he has a good ERA and we’re in such a weird, short season, but Cease has been bleh, contrary to ERA evidence. With that said, every pitcher has about six more starts, so Cease the day.

Kris Bryant – Hit the IL with a pain in his left ring finger. Similar thing happened to me on my wedding night, and it never healed.

Yu Darvish – 7 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 1.70. Since July of last year, Darvish might be the best pitcher. List definitely isn’t longer than three (with Biebs/deGrom). By the by, how did I draft Darvish in so many leagues when people were drafting Clevinger in, like, the top 25 overall?

Kyle Schwarber – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer. In related news, that’s five times now Joe Buck’s gone into his mother’s guest bathroom and screamed, “Don’t bother me! I’m going to do a 45-minute poo!” Then exited almost an hour later, and didn’t flush the toilet.

Stephen Strasburg – Hit the 60-day IL. This seemed to be coming from about three weeks away when he said something like, “Maybe I’ll come back for this season, whatever this season is.” And that’s me paraphrasing me! Stressbird had checked out around that time. Also, not to pile on, but I told you not to draft him this year or Scherzer, speaking of which…

Max Scherzer – 4 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.31. Yeah, he’s totally himself and won’t say at the end of the year his back’s been bothering him for 18 months.

Anibal Sanchez – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 6.48. Looked Anigood, has been Anibad, next up, Aniokay?

Luis Garcia – 3-for-4, 3 runs, hitting .357. Sounds like Charlie Sheen in Platoon, hitting that .357. Not enough has prolly been made of Garcia on these pages. He can hit for power and steal some bags, but will likely be hitting closer to .250.

Sixto Sanchez – 5 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks in his 1st major league start. Oh, he’s gonna be so good. This year? Meh, maybe, maybe not. He was shooting 100 MPH darts and dropping nasty sliders like en bee dee. You know you’re doing something right when a 91 MPH change has hitters off balance. Marlins turning the page from the six-fingered Alfonseca to the Sixto’d One is in full effect.

Jay Bruce – Hit the IL with a quad injury, and Adam Haseley was activated. “Yo, hit me up if you need another outfielder.” That’s Domonic Brown.

Zack Wheeler – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.76. Wheeler keeps on rollin’. *Tiger Woods fist pump, does a little ‘terrible pun’ dance* I still got–God damn it, I think I pulled my back.

Alec Bohm – 3-for-3, 2 runs and his 1st major league homer. A 446-foot deep drive. That’s an Alec Bohm bomb. Hearing a lot of people say Jake Cronenworth is pace car for the NL ROY, but don’t think he’s got it locked up or that anyone cares. Almost sillier than giving out awards this year is going to be people who are upset about who won the awards. “C’mon, Bohm had four homers and hit .310 in 124 ABs! How’s that not the Rookie of the Year?”

Rhys Hoskins – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer. Is there anything Hoskins can do to get back in people’s good graces? Yes. Can he do those things? I have reached Critical Doubts mode.

Brandon Workman – 1 IP, 1 ER, and his 1st save with Philly. Already looking like he can slide right into the Phils’ pen and pick up where Neris left off by being absolutely mediocre. If you hadn’t heard, Matt Barnes is now the Red Sox closer. That’ll be great, as well.

Nick Anderson – Hit the IL with forearm inflammation. Guess that explains why he hadn’t been closing games all year–I’m kidding! Cash is the reason! Cash is always the reason! Cash ruins everything around me! Castillo is the obvious fill-in for saves in Tampa, which means Jalen Beeks, Fairbanks, Thompson…Literally anyone else will get saves. Yesterday, J. Curtiss (1 2/3 IP, 0 ER) got his first save. What an ignorant slut!

Matt Shoemaker – Hit the IL with shoulder inflammation. Now we just need Garrett Richards to join The Cobbler, Judge, Giancarlo and Paxton and it will prove that even in a 60-game season, injury-prone guys are injury-prone guys.

Teoscar Hernandez – 1-for-1, 2 runs, and a slam (10) and a double legs (3, 4), hitting .296. I want to have his babies.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .264. Lou-Gu, my guy! Get hot, my main squeeze, that’s an order, but you do what you want, because I’m woke and very understanding, but seriously get hot.

Chris Bassitt – 5 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.97. Streamonator loves his next start, and I’m with that ‘sitt.

Hunter Pence – Designated for assignment. His assignment is to mate, so Gangly Manbirds don’t go extinct.

Tyler Anderson – 9 IP, 0 ER, 3 hits, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.45. Hey, word to the wise, if you’re gonna go the distance, wait until it’s a 7-inning game. I was thisclose to streaming Tyler Anderson, but a 90 MPH fastball and a 6 K/9 doesn’t exactly light a fire under the man area.

Trevor Cahill – 5 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 1 hit, 2 walks, 8 Ks, ERA at 1.64. Not to get all toothpaste commercial on you, but nine out of ten times I’m fine with starting anyone in San Fran.

Mike Yastrzemski – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer, hitting .309. Look at the last outfielder on your fantasy team. Betcha Yaz Jr. Jr. is better.

Kevin Pillar – 2-for-5, 2 runs and a slam (3) and legs (1). Pillar rocks! What, I’ve reached my statue of limitations on puns? (Ha, my autocorrect changed that to statute like three times. Hey, autocorrect, I’m doing puns on a Pillar, leave me the eff alone!) By the by, I owned Pillar yesterday for this game and didn’t realize it until after the games had begun. Thank you for some divine inattention!

Jackie Bradley Jr. – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer. Wake me when he walks three times in a game.

Will Smith – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 3rd homer, as he was activated from the IL. Just what Jada Pinkett needs, more options.

Mookie Betts – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and a double slam (10, 11) and double legs (4, 5), hitting .300. Mookie Best!

Corey Seager – 2-for-5 and his 7th homer. Dodgers 100% win despite Dave Roberts. Case in point:  How is Chris Taylor their three-hole hitter? Seriously, dubya tee eff.

Cody Bellinger – 1-for-4 and his 8th homer. C’mon, Chris Taylor hitting third? That makes sense to anyone? Taylor could go 5-for-5 and it makes no sense.

Ryan McMahon – 2-for-4 and his 6th homer. Am already thinking about writing a Ryan McMahon 2021 sleeper? Think he will still be cheap enough to warrant it? I kinda do.

Sam Hilliard – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer, and two homers in two games. Must be tough to be a young player in the Rockies’ lineup. If you do something good, you draw attention to yourself and Bud Black benches you.

Tarik Skubal – 2 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 Ks, ERA at 10.38, which is irrelevant. He’s not ready to pitch 5+ IP, which is admittedly sucky for this year, but I could gush like I’m wet and gushy at how gorge Tarik was throwing yesterday.

Niko Goodrum – 2-for-3, and a slam (5) and legs (3), hitting .202. Who do you think is higher on the Player Rater: Altuve or Goodrum? Altuve owners might need a drink.

Joe Jimenez – 1/3 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 12.46. Hmm, this is weird. The box score says he didn’t get the hold. Not the stat, I mean an actual hug. Tigers have nothing to play for, so they might try to get Jimenez right, or they might IL him to the Ineffective List, or they might go to Buck Farmer. Personally, I don’t want to mess with Joe or Buck or Joe Buck.

Triston McKenzie – 6 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 10 Ks in his 1st major league start. Not to defend Sixto, because 1st major league starts don’t really matter in the big picture, but McKenzie had an easier matchup. Also, home vs. away. But, of course, McKenzie looked great, it’s written all over his final line. So, if you didn’t see, he’s a string bean that pumps in 96 MPH and lots of other breaking stuff. All of it with pinpoint accuracy. The nice thing with McKenzie is he shouldn’t be a victim of huge blowouts, due to his command. The bad thing, he hasn’t really thrown much in the last two years. For this year only, McKenzie over Sixto, but that could change. *me looking out the window* What beautiful hedges.

Carlos Carrasco – 3 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.50. As soon as I type “Car” into my browser, Carrasco’s player page comes up, because I don’t clear my cookies. Pun points! In a short-season, I’m willing to just forget peripherals and say the season is too short to wait around. As pointed out previously, Carrasco should be better, but do you wait for him? Depends on the league.

Kris Bubic – 3 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 5.96. Lower half of my fantasy team says, “Oof,” after getting hit in the Bubic region.

Trevor Rosenthal – 1 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 1.59. This is for Royals’ management. Everyone else can move on. Hey, Royals, you lucked into Rosenthal doing well. He’s not good. Now there’s ‘heat’ that teams want to trade for him. My suggestion is to not let him pitch again until you can trade him, because it will only lower his value. Oh, and tell Matheny that Rosenthal is hurt, because he won’t ever be able to understand any of this.

Hunter Dozier – 4-for-4, 3 runs, and three homers in the last week, and has been one of the hottest schmotatoes in schmotato land.

Kevin Newman – Was removed from the game with abdominal pain. Fun fact! Every winter, I build a snowman with chiseled abs and I call him, Abdominal Snowman.

Gregory Polanco – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and a slam (4) and double legs (1, 2), hitting .151. I would be too, if I owned him.

Richard Rodriguez – 1 IP, 0 ER and his 1st save as Keone Kela reevaluates why he wanted to pitch this year. If you’re desperate for saves, you can grab Dick-Rod.

Shohei Ohtani – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer. Funny (not haha), now it seems like people have cooled off on Ohtani, but, without pitching, he’s more valuable.

Frankie Montas – 4 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 5.22. Right now, it’s easier watching Grace and Frankie.

Eugenio Suarez – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .149. This guy is killing me. Didn’t draft him for singles, but I also don’t drink water for the taste.

Harrison Bader – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .233, but two homers in two games, and hot schmotato alert!

Dylan Carlson – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 1st major league homer. Think he’s going to be good, but have been burned by Cards’ prospects in the past — farting in your general direction, Bader — so withholding love like your daddy.

Yadier Molina – 4-for-5, 1 run, 2 RBIs with four singles. All the single Yadis! All the single Yadis! All the single Yadis!

Kwang-Hyun Kim – 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 1.69. This cracked me up. A major league team, who presumably scouted Kim, spent money and time to research him, and even they had no clue what they had, putting him in the bullpen. Yet, we’re supposed to know who Kim is from scouting reports and a few Eminem songs?

Paul DeJong – 0-for-4 as he was activated from the IL. Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “I was wearing the test around my neck to show everyone I was negative. I’m sorry if I offended anyone, I didn’t know it was a pregnancy test.”

Brandon Bielak – 1 1/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 4.37. Hey, it’s great talking geopolitics with you in his bistro in Kabul, but I have to use the bathroom. Mind watching my ginger ale?…*four hours later*…Wow, must’ve fell asleep for a few–Wait a second, is that man harvesting my liver? AHHHH!!! Roofie!

Kyle Tucker – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer. Only took three weeks for Tucker to move up to the cleanup spot, which honestly is impressive for Dusty, and I’m choosing to ignore that he had little choice with Bregman out, except for this mention of it.

Manny Machado – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and a slam (8) and legs (3). Pitch to the Padres hitters, and it’s like stepping in the Thunderdome, and they’re gonna lightning up the scoreboard.

Trent Grisham – 0-for-4, but hit three homers (5, 6, 7) on Saturday. I’ve been strutting like Ric Flair screaming, “Wooooo!” for the last two days due to Grisham. *remembering about Jose Abreu vs. Alonso* Stop stealing my joy!

Justus Sheffield – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.51. He was in Friday’s Buy column because I am a freakin’ genius–Oh, yeah, he was a Streamonator call. I actually own Sheffield in one deeper league and it’s gone like this, “Hey, he’s pitching well on my bench, I guess I’ll start him,” and, “Okay, that start sucked, I’m benching him again,” then, “Sonavabench! Why does he only pitch well on my bench?” And finally, “I guess I’m just going to start him every week, so expect his next start to be awful.” I.e., No Justus, no peace! Justus? No peace!

Justin Dunn – 6 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 1 walk, 6 Ks, ERA at 5.57. Maybe instead of talking about how there was Justus administered vs. the Rangers, we should talk about streaming pitchers vs. the Rangers. Do they have one hitter doing decently? Oh, yeah, Derek Dietrich. *insert Michael Scott grimace*

Kyle Lewis – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer. Every time Lewis homers I dress up like a Mardi Gras Indian and lead Cougs and my dog, Ted, around the house for a fifteen-minute parade. Why? It’s celebratory!

    I made a trade and I’m sort of nervous that I fudged up.
    12 team standard points league.

    My outfield was Judge/Bellinger/Eloy/Lewis and my bench was Soler and Yastrzemski…too much value on my bench. My pitching staff was: Giolito/Woodruff/Glasnow/Keuchel/May with Mize & McKenzie on the bench.

    SO…I traded Yastrzemski and Eloy for Berrios and Castellanos. Berrios looked unhittable in his last start and Castellanos helps my depth out.

    This Now gives me: Judge/Bellinger/Lewis/Soler

    Giolito/Berrios/Glasnow/Woodruff and Keuchel

    Does it seem legit to you guys?

    Thanks!

    • galica says:
      (link)

      Fister!

      I like the trade. Like always when guys and girls analyze a trade there’s a few points.

      1. You got the best player in the trade, Castellanos. He is hitting well in a hitters’ park, he’s good. Eloy is good too, but slightly worse than Castellanos.

      2. You sold high on Yaz Jr Jr. I doubt he can sustain the power and overall production, let’s see in September if he’s still slugging .680+. I think it’s unsustainable even in a short season.

      3. Overall you used a surplus that was being untapped on your team to realize a need and that’s always a positive.

      Will the trade produce the results you wanted? Track all 4 for the rest of the season and see at the end. No need to beat yourself up over it, just see at the end if it was + or -.

      Cheers,
      Ante

      • Fister Furbush says:
        (link)

        Thank you for the comment! That’s some excellent insight that you gave. You’ve got a great point about Castellanos and that really does help my outlook on the whole trade. The thought of Yaz‘s ultimate demise also makes me feel better.

        • galica says:
          (link)

          Fister!

          Thanks, man.

          a. Not trying to make you feel better or anything else. Just laying out the truth in an analytical way. Could Yaz hit 20 HRs in this shortened season? I mean he could but that would mean that others are going to hit 40 and that makes no sense at all.

          b. On Castellanos, forgot to mention that he fills a void elsewhere on the team which is also a bonus.

          c. There is no point in carrying 4 bench bats who are week in, week out the best in MLB or that you have the top 6 players but can only start 4 of them. You did the best you could to move 2 of those 6 and probably the best ones.

          d. Just curious but did you do some racial profiling while you were at it? Like some guys and girls like Yaz Jr Jr but others don’t, get it? Ah well, I think selling Yaz Jr Jr NOW is a good move rather than even 2 weeks from now.

          Cheers,

    Grey!!

    Loved the report!

    a. I see SON is getting more and more precise with the $$$. Very impressive. Used it to drop Heaney and Odorizzi. Then even after Heaney cleared waivers was able to pick him up again for his next start which is a good one for him (according to SON). Let’s see. Was able to get McKenzie amd Justus off waivers (sent Justus back because SON doesn’t like his next start but might be in again if SON likes the one after) and others.

    b. Lot of pitchers struggling to go 5 INN in less than 100 pitches and managers are even more reluctant to let them get to 5 INN if they can’t do it in under 100. Also I see a lot of pitchers completely wiped out after 100 pitches like they just ran a full marathon. I guess it’s hot and muggy but also they probably lack the conditioning necessary to be at the top of their games.

    c. Another unwritten rule? If the real manager of a team in MLB decides that this pitcher is the team’s closer than who am I as ‘fantasy’ (aka not real) baseball manager to decide otherwise. Like Pagan is the closer in SD now after Yates and Pomz are injured, so just pick him up. Don’t complicate it too much. However, there are some really stank teams out there so you don’t have to sign up the closer from every team. Right?

    d. JBJ, man. He better smarten up or Linsanity 2.0 will become a reality! I saw a couple of weeks ago, Lin played CF and I go – WUT!!! It was right around Benintendi’s move to the IL. Lin!

    e. Having AlBum-so and Urshela on my bench really bums me out. I hope they’ll be able to play soon. I re-deployed Evan White for the CI, I’m sure he’ll be great (trying to stay positive).

    f. MLB quote of the day for August 24, 2020

    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    It ain’t over till it’s over.

    It’s like déjà vu all over again. (My personal favorite)

    No one goes there nowadays, it’s too crowded.

    Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical.

    Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.

    We made too many wrong mistakes.

    Congratulations. I knew the record would stand until it was broken.

    I like the sly six-fungered reversal. Kinda like a lateral from QB Alfonseca to the Sixto’d One, except you’re the QB and we are cardboard cutout caricatures of ourselves. Great write-up! Btw, why arent there cutouts of the peanut vendor guy who blocks the kid in aisle 3’s view?

    Its hard to believe we’re almost at the half way mark when I’m sill making the type of adjustments one does in the first month to my roster. By the time I get things right I’ll be raking leaves and helping the kids with their Halloween costumes.

    It feels like going to the pump and getting a 1/4 tank of gas before I start to drive from LA to SF, and find myself praying to get to an offramp right before I run out of gas in Button Willow.

    On a related note, do we think Giolito gets 2 starts this week? SON says no (for Giolito to start both Tuesday and Sunday they would need to skip their 5th starter due to the 5-game week). Other sites think yes 2-starts, but might not be looking as closely….

    who would you drop to replace him

    bredan rodgers, schwarber, mckenzie, mize or severino?

    • NUX says:

      Luis, the yanks SP, right? And you must mean add. I’d grab Schwarber and see if he is heating up, if not move on.

      • lennydykstraisjustkmisunderstood says:

        no the catcher from baltimore

        • NUX says:
          (link)

          I had to go look at stats, I’m shocked to see that he is over 80% owned in ESPN and that he has 5 homers. Must have the blinders on to Oreos catchers, though I did see Sisco has been leading off recently. Off topic kinda, but embarrassingly enough, I added Cedric Mullins for cheap speed, fingers crossed.

          Schwarber would be my favored bat and T-Mac if you prefer an arm instead.

            thanks severion had 4 decent weeks i picked up to as a hold over for when sal perez went down …..catcher you have to take what you can get

    Joe Jiminez is a dumpster fire. In the leagues I have him, I’m desperate for saves. Do I bench him? Drop him and move on? Keep in lineup and pray? This is a tough case. Is it worth adding farmer? I need a new hobby.

      If you’re that desperate, you have to run him out there until he’s not the closer.

      Keep an eye on what the Red Sox do with that pen. Barnes might also get moved, if he can get a clean inning or two in this week. In my deep dynasty, i just added Phillips Valdez as a dart throw

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        “if he can get a clean inning or two in this week” – 0% chance – for whatever reason, Barnes seems to only be interested in throwing strikes when he’s in a RISP situation – For real though, I think he’s only had 2 clean innings all season so far?

    Former NHL player and coach Mike Milbury has been sidelined for the remainder of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after comments he made about women Thursday night on the NBC Sports Network.

    Mike Milbury, who works as an analyst for the network, was on air during the Washington Capitals-New York Islanders game and speaking with co-host Brian Boucher about the success of the NHL’s bubble during the coronavirus pandemic.

    “If you think about it, it’s a terrific environment with regard to — if you enjoy playing and enjoy being with your teammates for long periods of time, it’s a perfect place,” Boucher said.

    “Not even any woman here to disrupt your concentration,” Milbury replied.

      While people can say things that may be insensitive to many people, and that certainly can be addressed on a case-by-case basis, the whole climate of “cancel culture” has gotten out of hand. If broadcasters or other public figures say something foolish for the context then they will feel the heat one way or another. Sometimes a reckoning is good for people. But cancelling people forever seems extreme to me. People say stupid sh*t sometimes. It happens and they have to deal with it. Being publicly outraged seems to have become its own sporting event for some. Being outraged takes no skill nor requires no test of meddle or one’s true character. It seems like media now caves 100% of the time now to cry-bullies who really just need something real to do in this world other than playIng the victim. Like, how about helping real victims like children freed from human trafficking or something truly virtuous.

          You don’t have to hang on to every word to hear a couple of sentences. Their job is to say words to people listening.

              It doesnt seem mean spirited, just old fashioned. Two generations ago there were mens’ social clubs and male-only establishments. In a large chunk of the world (most of Middle East) men and women are separate much or most of the time. Is that “wrong” or just culture?

              Personally, I think people should be allowed more self-determination. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be among other similar type males. I know when it comes to broadcasters I definitely prefer males doing play-by-play just like I prefer male lead vocalists for heavy metal or hard rock. But there are exceptions and people should make their own determinations not have the PC police out to enforce.

              • Cram It says:
                (link)

                I don’t think this is about associating with your own gender. I think it’s about women feeling oppressed being labeled a “distraction”, which is a whole other ball of wax.

                • Dave D says:
                  (link)

                  Yeah, that reminds me of the whole issue years ago about female reporters having equal access to the locker room. Players didnt feel the same liberty to walk around naked or partially, or act like a “dude” might when just jocks around. It seems like everybody has to be “on” all the time and, particularly men, arent given much space to be a bit crude or inappopriate. There are no more “closed doors.”

    Hey Grey,

    H2H 12-team cat. keeper (keep10) balanced stats (R,H,HR,RBI,SB,BB,AVG, OPS,XBH / W,CG,SV,K,GIDP,ERA,WHIP,QS), limit of 20 moves/year

    In 4th place with 2 weeks left. I’m trying to work out some trades to try and build up my Pitching (guy is offering me Berrios for my 12th round pick – which would be round 2 after keepers). I believe I have too many young/rookies but don’t know which ones to cut. Anyone on the wire worth grabbing (Cronenworth, Flores, Gallegos, Minor)?

    I’m going to try and acquire (through a trade) a Catcher and most likely another reliever as well unless you see decent add form the wire.

    Some guys on the wire:

    HIT- J. Winker (added to waivers today), D. Peralta, W. Flores, A. McCutchen, J. Cronenworth, K. Calhoun, Y. Diaz, N. Ahmed, C. Taylor, W. Ramos ©, M. Garver ©, Y. Molina ©, C. Kelly ©, M. Maldonado ©, S. Murphy ©, A. Barnes ©, Y. Gomes ©

    Morning Grey,

    hope you enjoyed the weekend.

    Had a tough go at it with pitchers getting lit up… especially Bielak…which leads to my 1st of 2 questions:

    1. Is Bielak worth holding or cut bait to grab a batty call today/ use as a SP Stream spot
    best available SP’s to stream:

    – K. Gibson (Tex v. Oak – 8/25 – $1.4)
    – C. Oswalt (NYM v. MIA – 8/26 – $9.4)

    2. Who should I drop once Judge gets activated from the IL?

    12-team, 6×6, Roto redraft league

    C: Contreras
    1B: Bellinger
    2B: K. Marte
    3B: Sano
    SS: Villar
    IF: Correa
    OF: Franmil Reyes, Grisham, Kyle Lewis
    UTL: G. Hampson
    bn: Kyle Tucker, Joc Pederson, Mountcastle
    IL: Judge
    NA: Lux

    SP: Bieber, Berrios, Urias, G. Marquez, Merrill Kelly, Bielak, Mize, Sixto
    RP: Hader, Workman, Montero, Wick,
    IL: Carlos Martinez, A. Wood

    thanks in advance!

      • Dancin Homer says:
        (link)

        thank you.

        Batty-call today, then cut said batty call to activate Judge.

        That said, I don’t really want/ need to carry 4 bench bats once Judge gets activated, so which hitter would you lose (or carry 4 bench bats)?

        – Mountcastle
        – J. Pederson
        – Hampson

    nice Grey as always.
    I have enjoyed Grichuk-ride as you recommended.
    finally, he looks down to earth recently but he’s destroying lefties this yr.
    his next 2 matchups are lefties (Snell, Kyle Hart).
    so should i be with him more or droppable easily?

    Bohm or Grichuk ROS?

    Thanks!

      Or Sano?

      Bohm

    Got offered Treat Urner (non keeper) for Matt Chapman (keeper).

    My potential keepers right now are:
    Soto
    JD Mart
    Mondesi
    Kyle Lewis
    Hiura
    Aristides Aquino
    Jo Adell
    Andrew Vaughn
    Mancini (ofc)
    and Chapman

    We keep 5 hitters, so I think I have enough to choose from. Worth losing Chappy forever for 30 games of the good boy, Treat Urner?

    • LaRockakis says:
      (link)

      12 team points league, btw

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Nah

      • LaRockakis says:
        (link)

        Even with Mondesi shitting the bed at SS? He’s my only option at short rn, and I could move Hanser to third and Lourdes or Hiura at 2b if I lost Chappy.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Chapman is such a good keeper

    Do you see Diego Castillo as a must-own in 12 team leagues? Not sure how many save opps he gets but I like the dual SP-RP eligibility. Thanks!

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      based on yesterday’s usage and performance, i’d say no – unless EVERYONE along with setup men are taken (i.e. Romo), then maybe you should speculate as long as you aren’t dropping anyone valuable

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Agree with Hung

    Should I just drop Stripling at this point for Kwang Kim? Doesn’t sound too bad with Stripling sucking and Kim getting the Pirates on thursday.

    • JKJ

      I would. Stripling is not good

    Kelly vs COL
    Nola @ WAS
    Bassitt @ TEX
    Minor vs LAD
    Kelly vs SF

    Pick 3

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Kelly x2, Nola

    • Chucky says:

      Minor is an easy out, maybe Bassit, but Texas is a mess right now. Nola for sure. Bounce back after last weeks debacle.

    With the news that Acuna “might” be activated for the week…

    Would you bet on Acuna being activated and start Acuna over any of the below guys (only 5 games 2v NYY and 3 @PHI, against Cole, Wheeler and 3 scrubs)?

    Walker ($14.5 – 7 games)
    Didi ($7 – 6 games)
    Schoop ($6 but en fuego last week – 7 games)

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Yeah, over Schoop

  40. Matt Lehman says:

    Danny “Duff Man” Duffy might be worth cyclopsing again – rising from the ashes 3 years the last time he was fantasy relevant… He’s pitching decently enough and I’m noticing some of the same patterns from 3 years ago when I saw he was on the cusp of breaking out a bit. Maybe nothing to see here, but an interesting observation – I may be watching too many baseball games…

    For the record, if he starts rolling off some QS to finish off the season, then I want credit – else, we can forget I said anything at all

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha, yeah, I’ve been watching him

    • Chucky says:
      (link)

      Ooops…Duffy to miss this week’s turn with left arm fatigue. Ooops!

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        That’s the story with Duffy too – he sucked the year after his breakout cause his arm is made of glass

  42. Dong Show says:
    (link)

    Guy in my dynasty league wants LuBob in the worst way and is making it very difficult for me to keep telling him no ( I see Robert as the corner stone of my team for obvious reasons)

    He’s offering Luis Castillo or Trevor Bauer (my pick), Karinchak, Victor Robles

    or

    Luis Castillo or Trevor Bauer (my pick), Karinchak, C. J. Abrams or Jasson Dominguez (my pick)

    I hate “me me me” post, but I feel like context helps here. I am 2 games out of first but very comfortably gonna make playoffs I would think. Roster right now is

    Realmuto
    Freeman
    Merrifield
    Correa
    JRam
    Mookie
    Ketel Marte
    Luis Robert
    Nelson Cruz

    (my bench is a whose who of struggling big names in K. Bryant, Javy, Mondesi, David Fletecher, Verdugo, Wil Myers, Brantley)

    Lynn, Civale, Grienke, Bundy Bassitt, Julio Urias, Kikuchi, Rich Hill along with Chad Green, Staumont, Montero, Nick Anderson, Taylor Rodgers for RP.

    My key with these arms is control ERA and WHIP and that has worked, as I lead our league in both, so its another reason I remain hesitant to deal for Castillo.

    Any kind of thoughts from anyone is always appreciated. Thanks as always!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I wouldn’t trade Lou Bob for pitchers

      • Dong Show says:
        (link)

        That’s how I feel and why I have kept telling him no! He’s trying to leverage me with my lack of star arms and that his been his main selling point. I feel like this is a deal that looks great on paper but has serious potential to burn me later, even if it is good for now. If Robert has an Acuna ceiling(and thats how I feel), I know I going to be kicking my own ass later.

        Appreciate your wisdom Grey!

      Vs. each other? Kelly

    • JKJ

      Both are over-performing. Kelly has more swing-and-miss to his arsenal and Keller is more a ground ball maestro. Don’t like more than the other for ratios but Kelly will get more Ks most likely.

    Owner of Alonso AND Abreu, so I totally understood everything on your lede.

    1) Have Acuna coming off the DL (hopefully) in the next day or two. Who sits out of Swanson, Myers, K.Lewis, Lauriano or Baez. Laureano?

    2) Do you still like Bielak in his next start against LAA? SON has him down for -$10.7, but SON doesn’t like many SPs these days.

    3) Pick up Mountcastle for his potential for the rest of year and drop Didi?

    Thanks.

    Who do you think is better trade bait in 2021 preseason, a $1 Kluber or $2 Pearson? This is in a 12 team keeper where only 7 are kept, so trade partners would be looking for the guy they think is most likely to hit the ground running . . .

    My thinking is Kluber is the better trade bait even though Pearson has the better long term future . . . what do you think?

        Thank you! No love for the Domonic? Was this because of that really well-researched article we both liked that predicted his HR rate would come down fast? (It also predicted Abreu’s was set to rise and boy did it ever)? I just like to know how mustaches think because mine comes with a beard, which is sort of a confounding variable.

        I’d drop Bass before I’d drop Buttrey. I don’t think Bass gets next save opp based on recent usage. And Buttrey will at least get the next one and for a much better team.

Unfortunately I have 2 injuries in the OF and have no more OF depth on my bench. I cant use kingery now as my other bench option since he has been worse.

            Im just saying aesthetically to watch he’s just displeasing. Seems like a prima donna, not a baller. No impressed. He like takes a running swing but lacks the finesse of Ichiro. I doubt he fares much better ever. He just seems lacking. I could overlook a cold start if it was just adjustment but seems more fundamental imo.

    What the Grisham hype? He hit 3 home runs and 6 rbi in one night. Yesterday K’s twice. I expect more out of guy in a loaded lineup.

    Erase those stats he would have 4 home runs and only 8 rbi half way mark through a season with a ELITE lineup where the guy leads off.

    I own him and I don’t even start him (trust) with Bellinger, Biggio, Peralta, Lewis Verdugo and E Rosario. When I plug Grishman in 0-4 or 2-4 R. Now he may heat up cause he’s playing Seattle and Colorado. Hittertron like Verdugo this week over him.

    What kind of pitcher can I get for Trent if he’s this valuable right now cause i don’t see it at all, I don’t trust the production you guys see. Alex Verago leads off on a worse team and would have better stats before Trent’s mini explosion.

        Alright Grey that made me LOL.

        If Klenetak from the Mariners where brought up, who you like more Grisham or him ?

    Hey Grey,

    I hope you’re doing well!

    I’m in first place in my 10-team, standard 5×5 (saves only) roto league with 82.5 points… 2nd place has 73 points. I’m currently at 297 IP in the first 4-weeks, and only allotted 228 IP left in the remaining 5-weeks. I also only have 17 moves left remaining in the season, having used 33. I have concerns that I’m going to quickly run out of counting pitching stats. Do you have suggestions on how to handle this?

    A) Should I be selective on starts?
    B) Maybe swap a SP with a high K/ low era/whip reliever such as the following:
    -Freddy Peralta
    -Devin Williams
    -Tanner Rainey
    Even though I won’t be getting saves, I might get the possible win. The pirates closer Richard Rodriguez is also available.
    C) Should I drop a pitcher and stash another bench bat?

    I’m open to any suggestions! Here is my team… please let me know who you would drop. Thanks!

    C: Murphy
    1B: Olson
    2B: Villar
    3B: Bohm
    SS: Bogaerts
    MI: B. Lowe
    CI: Moreland
    OF: Harper
    OF: Blackmon
    OF: Kyle Lewis
    OF: Mike Yastremzski
    UTIL: Grisham
    UTIL: Grichuk
    Bench: Hanser Alberto
    IL: Acuna, Garver, Austin Slater

    SP: Darvish, Giolito, Lamet, Wheeler, Houser, Sixto, Luke Weaver
    RP: Jansen, Melancon, Pressly, Wick, Buttrey
    NA: Plesac

    Thank you as always!

    • Sandman says:
      (link)

      I apologize in advance for the long question.

      In summary, should I continue the current course, or drop a SP for another bench bat or RP? Thank you!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Hold

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      And don’t start every single SP

      • Sandman says:
        (link)

        Thank you!

        Do you like Jordan Montgomery over any of my SP? I figure he could be a good candidate for wins.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yes, prolly but it depends on matchups…Likely him over Sixto at least

    Fantastic report Grey. This has been a weird year. My first 3 rounders have been on the IL, welp!

    Do you still believe in Alonso and if so do you prefer him in a keeper format over Olson?

    Thanks,

    Great stuff Grey. I’ve got some roster cleanup to do and we can only do one waiver claim per week. Who do you think has a better chance at providing even a little bit of value his season between Mercado and Andujar? That will help me decide which jackoff to drop first.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d lose both, Mercado 1st

    Lewis keeps hitting! You still see him as a sell? Or is this a legit breakout?

      Sell depends on what you’re getting but I’d sell him in right circumstances

    Me after the draft coming out with both Villar and Mondesi – “I’m never losing runs and steals”
    Today after seeing both Villar and Mondesi batting 8th and 7th, respectively – “FML”

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Surprised on Villar, he hasn’t been bad

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        He’s had some very bad no good ABs though – I have a problem watching too much baseball… he’s also had some ugly caught stealings/pick offs

        I wonder if him batting 8th is a punishment for some of his mental mistakes (errors, pickoffs, etc.)

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, I guess, and the Marlins are stacked apparently

          • Grey

            Grey says:

            Villar is leading league in steals and hitting .286

            • Stephen Lyon says:
              (link)

              Look at him go today! Should have been down there the whole year!

              • Grey

                Grey says:

                Yeah

                • William Hung says:
                  (link)

                  Villar’s stats are so weird – as many steals as runs

            • William Hung says:
              (link)

              Gotta love low sample size during this sprint – he was batting like .220 before the doubleheader when he went 5-8 or something like that

              Remember when the Royals were batting Mondesi 8th/9th when he was batting .290 and we were confused?

              • Grey

                Grey says:
                (link)

                Yeah

                • William Hung says:
                  (link)

                  Now I need both Eugenio Suarez and Matt Olson to go 8-8 to get above the Mendoza line

    Safe to say that Bass is out as closer. 2nd save opp in a row goes to Romano, and other recent usage would suggest Bass is out.

      It’s all Kyle Gibson

      • LenFuego says:
        (link)

        Nah, last week it was my entire pitching staff. I gave up 46 earned runs in 34 1/3 innings, for a 12.06 ERA, and Gibson warn’t a part of it.

        I just think it would be genuinely fascinating to see a ranked list of the performances that were the most damaging from a fantasy perspective … I would not be surprised if I had 4 of the top 10 last week.

        Ugh – sounds like the Merrill Kelly party might be over. To the IL with a shoulder impingement.

        Also pitching-related, is it worth holding Mize? I’m guessing not, fun though it is to stash and then use a great pitching prospect.

        Villar 2-5 tonight – could have been better. He’s gotta put the ball in play with 1 out and runners at 2nd and 3rd – not sure if the stats back it up, but when I watch him he’s striking out a lot with RISP
