Yesterday’s Cubs/Braves matinee was Jose Quintana (4 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 5.23) vs. Julio Teheran (6 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 1 K, ERA at 3.49).  This start was billed as, “Was The Wind Blowing Out Or Do These Guys Suck?”  A very quizzical billing.  I don’t own Quintana, but I hear your calls to place a flag on a sound stage in Hollywood and say it’s the moon and continue to own Quintana or if it’s cheese.  Guys (and five girls), things aren’t good — Ks are way down; walks are way up; velocity is down; this is the worst he’s looked in the majors.  Now, the good news, it’s relatively good, at least.  He had a 5.60 ERA last through the end of May last year, and a 3.41 ERA in the last 124 IP last year.  He also upped his Ks last June thru September and, until we see different, I think he could take the same route to success this year.  Or not (nice hedge, dopey!), but I’d hold to see.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Albert Almora – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .298.  We’ve gotten to the point where I actually agree with Maddon, starting Almora over Happ.  That’s a big helping of sigh.

Jose Bautista – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .172.  Since it’s now legal to gamble on sports, let’s do some over/unders.  Over/under on homers from Bautista this year:  16; over/under batting average .210; over/under on his place in the lineup 7th.  I’d go under, under, under.  I’m limboing, snitches!

Tyler Flowers – 2-for-2, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer.  Holy crap, Tyler Flowers did something?!  He’s now 2-for-2018.

Ozzie Albies – 3-for-5 and his 13th homer, hitting .277.  He was also the only name I wrote in on my imaginary Hall of Fame ballot for 2018.  Only I didn’t write Ozzie Albies, but drew all bees on the ballot, then I touched my tongue to the area where I popped out the chad.  My 2 Live Crew song is, Pop That Chad Out (for Albies).

Lucas Duda – Hit the DL with your garden variety plantar fasciitis.  Hunter Dozier (0-for-3) was called up and started in Duda’s place (and hit ninth).  You might remember Hunter Dozier from such lists as, “Hey, Wasn’t This Guy Good A Few Years Ago, The List,” and “A List of Guys That Were Once Considered Prospects.”

Whit Merrifield – 3-for-4 and his 4th homer.  But, even more importantly, he was hitting leadoff.  Let’s hope it sticks.  (Yes, it’s a little crazy to think we have to hope Merrifield hits leadoff when the Royals next-best option is Jon Jay.)

Matt Duffy – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs, hitting .322, out of the three hole, and hitting near-.400 in the last week.  I know, gross, but schmotato is as a schmotato does.

Ryan Yarbrough – 5 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.93.  Fun fact!  Yarbrough is something a stoner pirate would say.

Andrew Heaney – 8 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 3.93.  The Stream-o-Nator was meh on Heaney yesterday, but I will say Angels pitchers at home are usually more good than not, even against the Astros.

Keynan Middleton – Returned to the DL with UCL damage, and is likely headed for Tommy John surgery.  Please, whatever you do, don’t try to understand how he went from elbow problems ten days ago to pitching in three games last week to Tommy John surgery.  You’ll only hurt your head.  The Angels’ closer committee is a grab bag of crap — a crapbag.  In this crapbag, you’ll find Jim Johnson, Blake Parker and Justin Anderson.  I’d grab them in that order.  I have the most faith in Parker, but less faith in The Sciosciapath going to him.  Yesterday, Justin Anderson had the perfect inning for a save — the 9th.  He also loaded the bases, and barely squeaked out of it.

Hector Neris – Also out as closer.  Finally, the closerpocalypse!  The Phils will go to some combination of Edubray Ramos, Seranthony Dominguez, Neris and Tommy Hunter.  I’d guess that order, but, besides Neris, they’ve all been good, which doesn’t make it easy to grab just one guy.

Roberto Osuna – His administrative leave has been extended through May 21st.  If I were MLB, I’d want this resolved as soon as possible.  Nothing like your PR releases being, “Tony La Russa saved some strays…A beautiful moment during Mother’s Day games on Sunday…And Osuna beat up a woman.”

Dustin Pedroia – Began a rehab stint in Pawtucket, and is likely two weeks away from returning.  Pedroia said he’s regained the ability to drive the ball — to use his legs and to turn on pitches.  Remember the Sparky Anklebiter credo, “If might were height, Pedroia would be seven feet tall.”

Rick Porcello – 6 IP, 5 ER, ERA up to 3.28.  Yo, Regression Fairies, how about you go back to telling men their shorts should not be ankle length unless they are Juggalos and leave my pitchers alone!

J.D. Martinez – 2-for-4 and his 11th homer, hitting .346.  Just Dong’ing it!  About that sell…Kidding, of course, he’ll get hurt at some point.  He always does.  Sorry, hate to be the one on the Don’t Pass Line.

Rafael Devers – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer, hitting .256.  7 homers and one steal?  Real question, if he wasn’t on the Red Sox, who’d be owned more:  Devers or Eugenio?

Trevor Cahill – Cleared to start Wednesday.  So, Tuesday’s the peak, then it’s all Cahill from there.

Matt Joyce – 2-for-4 and his 4th homer, hitting .202.  Yesterday was especially good for my fantasy team named, “Joyce Da Whit.”

Matt Olson – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 5th homer.  Also, in this game, Matt Chapman went 2-for-4, 1 run.  Both of these guys?  They’re as overdue as your Faces of Death VHS you forgot to return.  I just realized something, you could’ve rented every Blockbuster movie ever from every store, then put them on eBay while ignoring late fees.  Is a defunct company gonna collect late fees?  Damn, this would’ve been so much better than buying the stock at $75!

Khris Davis – 2-for-4 and his 12th homer, and three homers in the last four games.  You could change your name to Cris Davis and hit 12 homers in 14 games.

Sean Manaea – 6 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.35.  Someone likes to pitch vs. the Red Sox.  Is he a Polish Samoan?  I will call him K’ielbaasaa.

DJ LeMahieu – Landed back on the DL minutes after my weekly lineup locked.  This was me:  sees LeMahieu is DL’d again, runs to the other room to change lineup, but because my dog, Ted, doesn’t like running — UNLESS IT’S HIM! — he starts biting my ankles and barking wildly, then Cougs gets excited, “What’s the matter?”  “Nothing, if I explain it will be too late!”  “Oh, because I can’t understand your incredibly complex baseball problems.”  Sigh.  “Forget it, it’s too late anyway.”  And that’s how DJ LeMahieu’s DL stint led to my wife saying she thinks we need therapy.

Daniel Castro – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer.  Also, in this game, Noel Cuevas (1-for-5) hit his first homer and Gerardo Parra (1-for-4, 3 RBIs) hit his 2nd, i.e., the few unowned Rockies, the Colorado Ickies.

Junior Guerra – 6 IP 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.08 vs. Patrick Corbin – 6 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.53.  The Regression Fairies could’ve killed two pitchers with one stone yetserday.  Missed opportunity.  I also go over Corbin in the video at the top of the post.

Tyler Saladino – 1-for-1, 2 RBIs and an inside the park homer.  It was tough for the Saladinos to move cities, but seeing lil Tyler do so well on the Little League field, I think he’s gonna be just fine.  And that boy down the street — you know, the Sogard’s kid — I think him and Tyler will be friends.

Steven Souza – 2-for-4, 1 RBI, hitting .152. Souza got his first extra base hit RBI.  They just played a march in honor of it.

A.J. Pollock – Sprained his thumb and could be headed for an MRI.  Damn, they’re never injury prone, until they are injury prone, huh?  (It makes sense if you don’t think about it too long.)

Chris Stratton – 5 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 1 K, ERA at 4.88.  Stratton is like the opposite of struttin’.  You walk on tiptoes and hope opposing offenses don’t see you.  Yesterday, Stratton walked like Sherman Hemsley for like one second, then Tucker Barnhart Marla Gibbs’d him.  Was Tucker Barnhart on The Baseball Bunch?  Because Stratton made him look like Johnny Effin’ Bench!  I will call him Strat-unauto-matic.  You gotta role snake eyes or 12’s to get a goddamn K!  There was an earthquake at beginning of game, so everyone in the stadium could feel how Stratton feels on the mound!

Scott Schebler – 3-for-4, 3 runs and his 5th homer, hitting .264.  it’s actually more impressive because he had a DL stint this year, and that’s in less than 100 ABs.  Okay, not crazy impressive, but he’s really not that bad.

Miguel Sano – Molitor said Sano is not close 100 percent, and added, “Did I ever tell you I once had a 39-game hitting streak?”

Jason Castro – Will have surgery to repair a torn right meniscus.  Gonna make it tough to count on his knee.

Ervin Santana – Threw BP on Monday and now there’s oiled-up ducks everywhere!  Save it for Daytona Beach!

Jake Odorizzi – 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.35 vs. Wade LeBlanc – 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.51.  A unlikely pitching duel by two pitchers who are doing unlikely things because:  baseball’s weird.  In the general big picture, baseball players do what you expect and teams play out how you think they will, but from minute-to-minute, game-to-game anything can happen.  This is my PSA for you not to gamble.

Robinson Cano – Hit the DL with a hand fracture.  We still have no timetable, but two months isn’t off the, uh, table of, uh, time.  The Mariners decided (for now) to leave Gordon playing center field and bring up Gordon Beckham to play 2nd base.  What a pee poor decision.  Yo, M’s, your head is in yo’ ass!  Can’t believe this team was smart enough to trade for Jay Buhner.

Jeimer Candelario – Hit the DL with wrist tendinitis.  Jeimer?  More like Bye-mer!  C’mon, high five me!  That was good!  No?  Okay.

Nicholas Castellanos – Could return on Tuesday.  Or as it’s been known since 400 B.C. “today.”  Prior to that, “today” was yesterday.  Talk about confusing.

Niko Goodrum – 2-for-4, 5 RBIs and his 3rd and 4th homer, and 2nd and 3rd in the past two games.  Bacardi 151 is a hot schmotato!

Mike Fiers – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.23 as he outpitched Carlos Carrasco – 6 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.66.  Yeah, of course Fiers outpitched Carrasco, because the sky is purple and it smells like stewed carrots.  Sorry, Barney is sitting on my head.  Wait, nope, dropped acid.  My bad again!

Jose Ramirez – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 13th homer.  Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor are massively talented.  It’s like if Wham was a trio and there were two George Michaels and Jason Kipnis is Andrew Ridgeley.  Or it’s like Simon & Garfunkel and Kipnis is the ampersand.

    Grey! Awesome stuff as always…your stuff is as consistent as Randy Johnson’s filthy stuff when he was dominant! I will call you…just kidding.

    I own Albies(reached for him a bit) and am wondering if i should consider selling high soon? I had this same predicament with Trout a few years ago when he first came up. I remember the conversation i had with you and my twin bro on this blog about how high Trout will go for the following year, and you said top 20-30 is not out of the question…my bro said top-30, and I said why not top-10? Im not bringing this up to say we were all right(Albright?), but is Albies in that conversation? Does he have 40hr power? Is he a 40/20 guy? MI stud ala Altuve 2.5(the extra 0.5 is for height)? For now i will stand Pat(Burrell) with my infield of TreatU, Freeman, Albies, and Kyle.Seager. Thanks!

    Bautista looked very quick with the bat on those inside pitches yesterday. He still has 30 homer power. Maybe he did fall off the cliff….but I’ll take the over on the homers,,,,,

    If he hits .220…yet cranks and extra 20 plus homers….I will take that, especially in that Braves lineup. Matt Davidson’s prime career year is what Bautista’s low point is….I’d take that

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Mark: He’s been a low 20’s HR/low .200’s avg for the last two years, which is what you’re pegging as now. That’s like Brandon Moss, Tommy Joseph production. I’ll take my chances with Davidson

    • Grey

      @Mark: 20 seems high, but maybe — .220 seems way high, but could be

      • Mark says:

        @Grey:

        I am torn bautusta. I saw him yesterday….he looked really good and made solid contract on3 occasions and pulled a pitch foul that had that elite homerun sound.

        I saw him last year and he feel off the cliff off the second half. I think playing the outfield really affected his legs. I am hoping for the best….prepared for the worst.

        But what i saw yesterday was a guy with a quick bat and monster power in a Braves line up that is potent. Could be a one day thing but.. This a player not that far removed.

    I gave up on Quintana and Tanaka around this time last year… that ended up being a huge mistake.

    If Darvish gets throttled by the Braves today, think we should try to sell low?
    Or could he still come back, and it’ll be the perfect time to buy low, like it would have been for Quintana and Tanaka last year?

    Also, Kluber has 9 straight QS’s, his next 2 games appear to be against the Astros (1 home/ 1 away) . Do you think the QS streak continues?

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Slappy Jack: I’d rather buy low than sell low.

      • Slappy Jack says:
        (link)

        @Cram It: Well obviously that’d be ideal
        but, only if the goods have potential to turn it around right?
        And I’m unsure about Yu,
        and if he has another bad outing today I feel like even if you get screwed on your draft value you might want to try and get *something* before you can get nothing.

        • Cram It says:
          (link)

          @Slappy Jack: Maybe it’s your question then…”should we try to sell low?” It’s kind of loaded. I don’t know what today’s outing has to do with determining that now would be the time to buy/sell low. What if he’s somewhere in between a throttling and a comeback? You have to think Yu won’t have a 5.00/1.50 line all year (unless he’s hurt, which we don’t know). I’d rather chance he improves than selling him for ‘something’, unless that something is good, but we don’t know what that is.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Slappy Jack: Agree with Cram — what does today’s game have to do with it? Yu has been a mess since last year, there might be something larger going on here, like he’s just not the same pitcher anymore… Sure on Kluber

      • Slappy Jack says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I guess I could have worded it better.
        I was just looking for a take on Darvish right now.
        I just have a hunch I guess that this game was going to send his value in vastly different directions based on the outcome. As he’s just coming off a dubious DL stint after a mixed bag of early starts, most of which were bad.
        I was wondering if anyone would still be on him even if it was bad based on something they have observed or read or whatever. That’s all

          Grey says:

          I think he might be broken, but I don’t know… Warning signs all over the place, but you gotta hope he shakes out of it

    • Joel says:
      (link)

      @Slappy Jack: Heh. I have Quintana (waiver claim thank god), Tanaka and Darvish. Isn’t that a neat little combo? I’m holding out. In my 8 team 5×5 it seems something always goes sour with at least one of my SP, murdering my ERA and WHIP. However, I just tank on and kill with K’s and the occasional win. It’s an uphill battle but something’s gotta give (positive regression). My bats are keeping me in it and injuries of others elite SP is helping balance things out (some in my league have 1-2 studs with a load or RP to maintain ERA/WHIP).

      Guess the real stinger is that I did a 1 for 1 to acquire Yu, giving up Morton (who also was a waiver claim). So I got that going for me.

    Alex Reyes had 12 Ks in 5 innings in his rehab start yesterday. Now up to 18 ks, 3 bb and 1 ER in 8.1 innings. Due back at the end of the month.

    Two questions:
    1) who is out of that rotation when he comes back? Weaver? Flaherty? Cmart and mikolas aren’t going anywhere and Wacha has been good.
    2) would you drop a top 50 starter (for example, Gausman) for him?

    • Hawk says:
      (link)

      @Aj:

      The Cards also have Wainwright on the DL.

      Based on results, Weaver would be out
      Based on how the team seems to want to proceed, Flaherty would be out

      @Aj: Flaherty — 2. Sure

    I like (don’t really like) how the first 3 SP’s I took in NFBC (Quintana, Godley, Hill) are sucking a** while Morton, Manaea and Heaney are now my top 3. If only the former 3 were just mediocre! What if it was reversed, if the top 3 were doing what they were expected and the other 3 were failing me? It’d be the natural order of things and I could kick myself for not uncovering better 4-6’s. I’m in 2nd place so I’m not complaining (too much), but my pitching numbers would be so much more glorious and I don’t even know where I’m going with this anymore or if I have a point but the performance role reversal is just fascinating to me.

    • Dave D says:

      What a nice luxury to have though! Hopefully things will ” balance out” soon?

        • Dave D says:
          (link)

          I was fortunate to get Morton too. I wanted Manea too but barely missed out on him. Guessing where they actually go based on ADP, at least in NFBC, is an art. It seems most of the players I wanted as sleepers went 10-15 spots ahead of ADP. I lost out on several on my first draft, then got more aggressive in my second draft and got most of the guys I was targeting. It’s pretty hard to get all the guys you want in a 15 team league though.

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            @Dave D: Oh it’s impossible to judge how that many other teams value guys in a draft like that. Many times I’d have like 10 guys lined up that I wanted picking at the back end of a late round and somehow they would all get taken before it got to me.

      @Cram It: It’s always the way, isn’t it? Occasionally you run into it and all your pitchers are great, but as long as a few of your pitchers turn out, you can be competitive…

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @Grey: For real…I don’t know if you ever hit on all of your pitchers, but it’d be nice to have one of your top 3 be at least solid. I think, what if I had drafted Cole instead of Quintana? But then I think, hey at least I didn’t take Ray or Darvish 2 rounds earlier, and then I stop thinking about the ‘what ifs’ because it will drive me crazy and I’ll be content with where I’m at!

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I think when you hit on all your pitchers is when you’re in the running for overall prize in NFBC… If I went Cole instead of Yu, and Newcomb instead of Sonny Gray, ya know? I mean, so close to coin flips

              @Grey: Oh sure, you know I’m not a fan of drafting pitching early. You say smarter, I say luckier, i.e. the coin flips you speak of. But Quintana is just an unexpected disaster, when just being average would make a world of difference.

                Yeah, totally… Me saying Cole falls to me instead of Sonny Gray is being disingenuous tho, I never would’ve drafted Cole, sadly

          • Dave D says:
            (link)

            Yeah, pretty much. It’s weird sometimes when you know a player will breakout, you pass on him a few rounds until around his ADP then you miss and know it was a mistake. For instance, in one draft I got Moncada #144 then then next draft the guy before me takes him at #140, and I instead go with LeMahieu at #143. Lots of variables even if you “know” you want a player at a given slot.

            Its kinda you vs. your draft expectations initially. Then a lot of second guessing when you’re not in 1st or topping 110 league points.

    Hilarious write up on LeMahieu! I had the same result with less drama. That sucks, although maybe I am better off with a DL’d 2B than with my back up Cozart. Kinda sad when you value is still questionable while hitting before Trout. One would think a player with a .400 OBP (Simmons) and speed might make a better leadoff hitter than one with a .299 OBP (Cozart) but we are talking the Sciosciapath here… After watching Justin Anderson’s epic meltdown Friday I was wary of him. Then he tries to blow the game last night again before Calhoun bails him out. I bet Calhoun will be benched tonight and Chris Young will be rewarded for Calhoun saving the game. Scioscia will bring in J. Anderson ( not Garrett) and he will falter again. Then maybe he goes back to Parker.

    Does that make sense? In the mind of a Sciosciapath it does…

    PS- Let me know if you need a referral to a good couples therapist. I know one who is a recovering compulsive gambler himself and charges way too much.

    Is there a term for never fully trusting a guy who is pretty good and then on the year you finally dive in he sucks donkey balls? Cause that’s Quintana. Seriously. F him. I picked him in a QS league because the normal young pitchers I go all pedo on tend to have high k rates and pitch counts which lessens their QSs.

    By the way in today’s climate F quality starts too. Guess what fantasy dorks wins are somewhat predictable. Pick a guy who throws innings on a team with a good offense and bullpen. Wins? You don’t say?

    There are many reasons that I, like many loyal readers, return each day to Razzball: peerless fantasy advice, online camaraderie, a few minutes of pleasant distraction while on the can each morning.

    But oft under-appreciated is the plainspoken wisdom of the mysterious Grey, who in an otherwise ordinary blurb for the very ordinary Jake Odorizzi, reminds readers of the folly of gambling:

    “[…] baseball’s weird. In the general big picture, baseball players do what you expect and teams play out how you think they will, but from minute-to-minute, game-to-game anything can happen.”

    I’m still gonna play my few high-stakes fantasy leagues that you’re advice has helped me win over the past 5 years, but rest assured, once every state opens the flood gates to legalized gambling, I’m not gonna be hitting the ultra long shot, +75000 odds that the Marlins win the World Series.

    Because of course, the Marlins suck.

    Grey,

    I’m at a crossroads with my pitching and I’d love your take. I’m currently last in last in saves (6) after trading for two closers, and middle of the pack has 21. I’m middle of the pack in W, WHIP, 3rd in ERA, and 10th in K.

    Two questions:
    1. Would you use a final spot for Kingham, or roll the dice on Rondon, Johnson, Parker, or Sir Anthony?
    2. Would you punt saves and package the closers with a starter to upgrade? Making up seven saves only gets me two points and closers are in high demand with this league. Snell + Treinen could realistically get Paxton, Nola, etc.

    SP is Bauer, Snell, Ohtani, Mikolas, Hendricks, Nelson (DL) and RP is Wade Davis, Treinen, Andrew Miller, Richard Rodriguez.

    I’ve missed on when to start Quintana, Darvish, and Gray so many times it’s exhausting just to think about. They have decent starts against decent matchups and I think, ok, they’ve turned the corner, lets get em off the bench…then have dreadful starts against slam dunk matchups. OOOfff. Thank goodness for Charlie Morton, Blake Snell and SON.

    A) I guess I’m activating Darvish today. Drop M Taylor or Souza? Held both over the weekend hoping one would show something, nope. I’m leaning Souza.

    My ROTO league includes Holds and am fed up with Juan Nicasio. I have him as a handcuff to Diaz, but think he may be playing hurt as his velocity is down and was reported a few weeks ago his arm “felt stiff”. I’m thinking of dropping him for the Phillies’ Seranthony Dominguez.

    These guys are available as well:

    Luis Garcia
    Amir Garrett
    Carson Smith

        I checked the values that I used based off of Rudy’s preseason projections for this league type and it looks like there is a $10 difference.

        The question just boils down to Schoop or Rendon, who would you prefer? And based off of your pre-season ranks for a standard league, I assume your answer will be Rendon. He is the reason there is a $10 difference.

        I have more SPs than I need for this league. I wouldn’t say that I’m just giving Corbin away here… The trade values add up, Corbin worth $9 based off of the Trade Analyzer. The deal would allow me to stream a bit more than I’ve been able to. And this league currently has Kyle Gibson, Bundy, Folty and Samardzjaijaja. Not saying I love all of those arms, but gives an idea of what type of SP pickups I can prob make ROS to replace Corbin.

        He rejected the deal in my previous post and then countered with this…

        My Schoop/Corbin for his Rendon

        Given the background info I gave, does this work as well as it feels like it might for me? As I mentioned, I can’t stream as much as I would normally.

        @Grey: Sorry, that last sentence doesn’t read as well as I’d like it to. I’d like to be able to stream more than I have been able to is what I meant. Just have too many rosterable bats/arms that I’m not willing to drop. So a 3/2 or 2/1 deal like this is my goal.

    In a 12-team Yahoo roto with (3 SP, 2 RP, 4P, 6 Bench) and W/QS/K/ERA/WHIP/SV+H, I have both Darvish and Flaherty coming off the DL/NA today. In order to make my roster the right size, who do I keep/drop? I am leading in SV+H by…a lot, so I suppose it wouldn’t be insane to drop an RP, though I do appreciate the ratio help and being able to start them every day.

    active SP: Wacha, Romero, Corbin, Paxton, Clevinger, Caleb Smith, Bauer
    active RP: Chapman, Vazquez, Bradley, Boxberger, Green, Barnes

        • knucks says:
          (link)

          @kilkennybrian: Its wild that you can throw in Archie and get Gallo in return, which has me thinking this is an offer youre making, not one that has been counter offered to you?

          I was looking at the Trade Analyzer for a question that I was asking Grey above. So I went and plugged in your deal. Its certainly fair with a value of $38.70 to $38.60.

          So maybe it depends on what your doing with the extra roster slot (ie streaming or what is available off of the wire). Should be noted that you are trading away the best player in the deal in Abreu.

    When the Cubs traded for Quintana, I told a friend that he was Colombian Ted Lilly. As a Cubs fan, it hurts being so right. He never had the SwgStrk rate to maintain his K% from last season.

    I’m thinking of dropping Archer in a shallower league to stream. The asset class regularly available for streaming is your Clevs, Fulmers, Wachas, Castillos, Skaggs, etc. of the world. Archer’s next 5 starts are a mixed bag, then he has to run a gauntlet of the Yankees and Stros for roughly a month.

    I welcome you or anyone’s thoughts on dropping him to stream?

    Im in a 6×6 Roto OBP, Holds, QS (no W)

    Im currently destroying batting categories, I’ve got Machado, Ramirez, Trea, Rendon, Sanchez, Acuna leading my offense. My pitching sucks though and am currently in 4th place, my best SP are C-Mart and *sigh* Quintana.

    Would you trade Manny for Syndergaard and Morton? League limits streaming because of move cap. Or should I hold for a better/different offer

    • Cram It says:

      @Mauricio Frid: I would get cheaper pitching. Try moving Rendon or Acuna instead.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Thanks! Nah, get cheaper pitching

    As a physician I can think of no real medical reason why a world class athlete in his 30’s should need to take furosemide. Also why one would choose to be treated by some Dominican doctor for any condition when you have the means to hop on a flight and see a real one. That sounded judgmental didn’t it. Hold me.

      Ha, yeah, I agree with you tho — Hope St. Kitts is awesome!

    Wow, are the Rockies this year’s Padres? Everyone has a shot at a no hitter against them. How long before a Torenado blows in…?

      Hopefully soon

    Devers on waiveres. Drop Healy for Devers.
    Cano 80-day suspension and I have (an extra) Odor and Wacca. What 2 SP should I ask for?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sure, go Devers

    My staff…..Max, MadBum, Hendricks, Morton, Bauer, Manaea. So far, so good.

    1. Reyes, Skaggs, Castillo on the wire in a 12 teamer, H2H. I rotate Mancini and K Seager in my Utility spot depending on matchups. Hold or drop one of them for a waiver guy? If so who on each end?

    2. I was offered Church for Jo Ma. My OF is Peralta, Mazara, Rosario, Mancini, DeShizz (must play a CF), so I am covered there. My RP staff are garbage…Treinen, Britton, Melancon. Just dropped Middleton ugh. Hard to part with Jose though. Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Reyes for Mancini 2. Ryan Church?

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Jose Iglesias?

      Sounds okay, you’re taking on all the risk

  115. aardvark says:

    In a league with an NA spot, would you trade Devers/Buehler to get Vlad? 12T mixed roto, could keep Vlad forever.

    Keepers this year: JD, Beni, Ray, Severino, Devers

    It’s a step price but Vlad seems like he’s going to take the majors by storm… he could also struggle, who knows. What do you think?

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d take Vlad forever and be very happy

  117. J-FOH says:

    I remember telling someone they should have drafted Buehler instead of Stratton. I wish I could recall who that was…oh and….. Hey Culligan Man!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Flukazy! Yeah, good call on you, bad on Rudy (which is only reason I own Stratton)… I’ve absolved myself!

      • J-FOH says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Id rather take the risk of the Dodgers and the 10 day DL…and the porcelain rotation he has ahead of him

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, too late for it now

    Porcello was dropped in my league. Worth grabbing off of waivers at the cost of Conforto or Cordero?

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Over Franchy, sure

  119. GrassyKnollRedding says:

    Hey Grey, would you sit Teoscar vs Thor or sit Buxton vs Flaherty? Thanks!

      Teoscar

  120. Jerseyjon says:

    Obviously it depends on needs but what side do you like Morton Bauer or Stanton Simmons? Thanks in advance

    • Grey

      Stanton

  121. Play Ball says:

    For counting stats in a standard 5×5 season long roto league, who would you rather have:

    Maikel Franco
    Ryon Healy
    Marcus Semien

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Healy

      • Play Ball says:

        Cron or Healy?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Healy

  122. FF8007 says:
    (link)

    Better buy low Hoskins or Goldy (OPS Roto League)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Hoskins prolly cheaper

  123. joe says:
    (link)

    start luke weaver @ min and folty @ cubs?
    SON hates weaver and doesn’t like folty either

    • Grey

      Folty is @ Cubs? I thought he was home… Neither, I guess

    14 team 4×4 league no Ks (pitching) No Runs (batting) start 2 at every position and 6 OFs

    Got offered trade :I give up Corbin, Absdrubel Cabrera, And Duvall for Matt Adams, Cesar Hernandez and Jarlin Garcia I do need pitching but thinking Corbin and Cabrera are due for regression And this might be the best I can do once the regression fairies hit.

    Also can do Bruce and Hector Neris for Moran and Gausman

    Thanks for any advice

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Not great on Corbin trade… Gausman one is fair

  126. Lucky Dog says:

    Not sure how I feel about Lindor the cleanup hitter, or managers who tinker with their lineups like that. Gah. I mean; that’s the answer for when your slow-footed slugger goes down? Put a base stealer in his spot and call it good? Seems like a terrible decision to me, but then I’m not Terry Francona.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Anything that gets him some RBIs is fine with me

  127. Ryan says:

    I have a glut of mid tier outfielders, I get darvish and happ(who I would drop), I give Teheran and Dickerson
    Would you do it

      Works for me

          Ralph on what?

    Looks like the Cleveland offense shows up the day after I throw Carrasco out there. Not saying he would have pitched better, but he’d have had a shot at a Win. Can’t wait till the weather heats up so the bats heat up.

    • Grey

      (link)

      Damn, how has Lindor done nothing?

      • Turd Wendell says:

  130. Cohen says:

    Worth holding Beltre? Already have CMart and Britton on DL.I have Machado at 3B and Hosmer at 1B/3B

    • Grey

      Meh, prolly not, but guess depends on league

  131. Andrew Mellars says:

    ROS Caleb Smith or Heaney? Are you a believer in either of these guys?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Both to varying levels… Heaney is safer, higher upside for Caleb

        And I should mention it’s a keeper league so it would probably be one of my keepers, no restrictions.

    I wish I’d have had the guts to go against SON and start Berrios. He gets zero run support, but he looks like he’s on his game, and that STL offense is turr’ble so far this year. Then again, game isn’t over…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, just good to see him look normal again

  135. Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
    (link)

    dervish coming out at 63 pitches better be since he’s coming off a flu and might have endurance issues. he did really well against a good offense on the road.

      Agreed

    Happy Day Before Hump Day Grey!

    I checked above and hopefully you haven’t answered already if so my apologies…But what the heck do we do with OSUNA now? I’ve got Kershaw & Reyes holding my DL spots, and Beltran taking up a roster spot just went on 10 day but my spots are taken?

    What to do? What to do? A little help my friend… cut him or hold him? I could;t find any info that was helpful to make the decision….

    As Always, thanks!
