(NOTE: THIS POST WAS RELEASED EARLY THIS WEEK ON OUR PATREON. IT’S $10/MONTH OR $13/MONTH WITH AN EXTRA WEEKLY PODCAST.)

Accidentally claimed Jose Siri in one league by holding down my iPhone home button, but, as I always say, it’s better to be lucky than good. Which is why I never learned how to drive, I simply rub a rabbit’s foot and go vroom vroom. If you Anglo’d up Jose Siri into Joe Siri, it almost sounds like you’re saying a Yo Mama joke to Siri, and if you’re saying a Yo Mama joke to Siri, you got some free time on your hands, huh? Clear schedule, you got. Here’s what Prospect Itch said of Jose Siri recently, “Siri seems unlikely to hit any better (than Myles Straw), but he has elite athleticism and good bat speed. Sounds a little like Adolis Garcia and any number of other forgotten nowhere men to pop from the upper minors and into our fantasy hearts. I’ve always liked Siri, and hate Grey.” Geez, man, c’mon. In Triple-A, Jose Siri went 16/24/.318. Yeah, I was surprised at how good he was there too. “Siri, please call Triple-A and tell them I have a flat tire.” That’s me after someone steps on the back of my shoe. For now, Siri is a fill-in for injured Astros’ outfielders (mostly Brantley), but they’re headed to the playoffs, so they might rest their guys a lot, which means playing time for Siri. If you need a guy who can fill all five categories, you should press your iPhone home button too. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Alejandro KirkAlejandro Kirk looks like he should have a name like Seth Beer. Or even Seth Keg. Already gave you my Alejandro Kirk fantasy. It was written without a touch of class.

Brandon Belt – Saw he was rostered in only 30% of ESPN leagues, and thought that was wildly low, then I saw on the Player Rater, he’s around 200th overall. Definitely worth rostering, but not nearly as great a season as I thought since he’s got Gene, the Giants’ genie, giving him all good things.

Lewin Diaz – Already gave you my Lewin Diaz 2022 fantasy, but there’s some 2021 info there too. Because you asked nicely! (You didn’t ask nicely.)

Bobby Dalbec – Exclusively, for a limited time only, Bobby Dalbec on your waivers. If you act now, you can get homers! Bobby D., anything to add? Dalbec leans into the mic and says, “And RBIs.”

LaMonte Wade Jr. – Pretty surprising to see Wade available for so many weeks without anyone acting on his hotness, but people seem to be onto fantasy football. Wade sounds like a football player, but he’d spell his name, La’Monte. Baseball players haven’t yet embraced the name spelled with an apostrophe. Baseball is still dealing with the many iterations of Zack/Zac/Zak/Zach.

Brad Miller – Phils have found a truly special hitter, and his name is Alec Bohm and they ruined him by showing him tape of Domonic Brown. But they have Brad Miller, who’s been playing and hitting.

Yonny Hernandez – Don’t want to signal to you what a supreme idiot I am. I like to hide my idiotness away. But, at the risk of being Mr. Idiot, I like what the Rangers have done with the direction of their team. Mostly the pitching, but their hitting looks a ton better than, say, the Pirates. Any hoo! Yonny has speed, and that’s ’bout it.

Evan Longoria – “Can I get a three-homer night?” “I promised one of those to Tommy La Stella.” That’s Longoria talking to Gene, the Giants’ genie. By the way, this is my Tommy La Stella buy blurb too.

Colton Welker – Member what I said about the Rangers about 68 words ago? Rockies have not done anything worthwhile, but is Colton *pinkie to mouth* Welker while? Woof, that’s a bad pun. I’m gonna have to hang-up my pun-making keyboard. It’s quitting time, because it’s Friday and around four-QWERTY. He’s still got it! Take it, Highlights! It’s yours! Any hoo! I don’t know if Bud Black is playing Welker. He should, obviously. He has power and average, and anyone in Coors is interesting.

J.P. Crawford – This is mostly a 7-day Player Rater call. Crawford’s been Just Peachy, recently.

Lane Thomas – Just thought of something. What if the Cards are trading away their prospects only to get them back when they’re pushing 40 years old and ready to contribute to their team?

Bryan De La Cruz – Certain guys slide through the cracks and I just never really look that close at them, and De La Cruz was one of those guys. You can hear me on this week’s podcast discover him. Hadn’t realized he was from the Astros, which means he’s a hit tool-first guy, and might hit .300 and not a ton else. Think a poor man’s Michael Brantley. Call him Bryan De La So…Is that it?

Jesus Sanchez – Think I might start my Jesus Sanchez sleeper before the season even ends. Have big-time love for this guy and he’s in a great place to get everyday at-bats. Marlins are a sink-or-swim type club with their rookies, and you know a Jesus won’t sink.

DJ Peters – He has a mollywhoping stick in his hands that can hit the ball far. He also hit .233 in Triple-A, so he might hit .170.

Patrick Corbin – This is a Streamonator call. Like the call it makes to the ASPCA.

Luis Patino – This is a Streamonator call. “Man’s best friend is a dog. Do you know what a robot’s best friend is? Batteries? Are you guessing?”

Chris Stratton – As I said the other day:

Pirates amongst themselves, “We have to use Chris Stratton to close games because he won’t cost us money in arbitration if he gets saves.”
Pirates to Bednar, “Your side hurts.”
Bednar, “No, it doesn’t,” then someone in the Pirates’ front office kicks Bednar in the side.

Joe Barlow – Also, I could’ve listed Scott Barlow, and, would you look at that, I just did! For those amazed there’s two Barlows. There’s actually 17 Barlows. More than half the league has the bar low with their bullpen. J.B. Wendleken getting saves in Arizona isn’t a Barlow? Please. May as well call him Joe Barlow Wendleken.

Dylan Floro – I googled to find out if he was Italian-American, but didn’t find anything definitive. Throw some grease in his hair so he looks like a WAP. A wet ass person. What did you think I meant? Half my family is WAPs. Italians love to look wet without being wet.

SELL

Adam Frazier – So, went to our 30-day Player Rater, and scrolled down for about fifteen minutes to the worst hitters over the last month, and who were rostered in more than 50% leagues, and Frank Voila! Welcome to my Ted Talk on why Adam Frazier has sucked since moving to San Diego. Maybe it’s the weather. It’s too damn pleasant! No one wants to play baseball when they can go surfing.

Tommy Pham – How about those Padres, huh? Pham looks like he’s barely a MLB platoon outfielder for the rest of his career. Just taking a stab here. Sorry! Bad choice of words!

Joey Votto – Whether or not Joey Votto is a Hall of Famer, it doesn’t matter to me or for fantasy, but I do find it funny (not haha) that everyone was talking about how Votto is a Hall of Famer when he was hitting .326 in July with 11 homers, but no one was talking about it in April when he hit .220 with four homers or in the last 30 games when he’s hitting around .200 with only a handful of homers. Even the smartest baseball minds (whatever that means) were kneeling in front of a kangaroo and blowing Joey’s horn about the Hall in July. Truly is remarkable. Welp, either way, he’s obviously cooled off and is droppable in shallower leagues. If it’s a keeper, I guess you can go to the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer, but I’d take a Mah Jong lesson from my mother-in-law in exchange, so not asking for a lot.

Hey Grey. Do you have any initial thoughts on if one should bail on Whitlock in a Holds league? He had a good inning before being removed after walking the first batter in the 7th. Not clear if he might miss time or if a day off Monday is all he’ll need, but the latter sounds optimistic.

GARRETT WHITLOCK
SP, BOSTON RED SOX
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after Sunday’s game that they won’t know the status of Garrett Whitlock until Monday.
Whitlock was pulled from Sunday’s game against the Orioles due to right pectoral tightness. Cora said after the game that it was too soon to have any sort of update on the injury. With an off-day on Monday, we may not get word on his status for the upcoming week until before Tuesday’s game against the Mets.

I think I may survive my semi round (I was ahead by 13K and he had 4 good SPs that appear to have only gotten 10).

Assuming I survive, I need to pick up a closer (I had to drop Givens to get another closer). Givens, Flanagan, Steckenrider, Chafin. I’m leaning Givens but maybe Chafin.

Not to mention last week in my Bye week I went 50/25/50/4 and if it were this week I would have won all 10 categories.

Floro just lost me a spot in the championship. I have no chance. Finnegan getting that save and Floro blowing it unless he gets a gifted win which so t happen and Gilbert gets a win and Lauer doesn’t get the win my season where I took 1st in the regular season just ended.

Godspeed. I don’t usually complain here but the is the worst loss I’ve ever had in Fantasy Sports ever.

Hi Grey,

Thanks for all your hard work!

I have a chance to take these pitchers from the waiver list.

James Kaprieler
Jordan Lyles
MIchael Pinada.

The following pitchers are on my team are on my team and could be waived. The other option is to waive off my position players such as Elias Diaz or Odubel Herrera.

Cal Quantrill
Luis Gil
Tanner HOuck
Luis Patino
Chris Flexen
Taijuan Walker
Nestor Cortes
Bailey Ober
Jameson Taillon

Thoughts?

Thanks!!

I can add two players from the list of available players, I could add a third guy but would have to drop someone (maybe jeff Mcneil)
Available: Lane Thomas, Lamonte wade Jr. Jeimer Candelario, Evan Longoria, Jesus Sanchez, bryan de la cruz, Gavin Lux, Yonny Hernandez, Jose Siri, yadiel Hernandez, kebryan hayes, luke voit, gio urshela, christian walker, didi gregorius, david peralta, dylan moore, hunter dozier, odubel herrera, kyle farmer
1. pick two to add for free and a third to add for jeff mcneil if hes better
2, will joe ryan be coming back any time soon? if not i could add a pitcher for him
3.Ottavino or Givens, or nick anderson? pick two

I need the best chance for wins, holds or saves tomorrow. I can only start 6 of the following pitchers tomorrow — who do you leave on the bench?

Espino (vs Rockies)
Kyle Finnegan (vs Rockies, starting pitchers are Espino v Gray)
Will Smith (at SF, Fried vs Disco)
Luke Jackson (at SF, Fried vs Disco)
Tony Watson (at SF, Fried vs Disco)
Genesis Cabrera (vs SD, Arrieta vs Happ)
Lucas Sims (vs LA, Miley vs Kershaw)

None of the RPs pitched on Saturday, so each could enter a tight game to get a vulture win or hold

Based on the SP matchups, Lucas Sims seems least likely to get in the game and is a candidate to be benched. Finnegan and Will Smith have KILLED me this week, but they are probably still considered the closer. Espino could get a win, but the Nats are cold and the Rockies are hot.

Who would you bench?

Oh well, not too terrible. Should have given you better options! To make matters worse, I had picked up Kapriellan on my start-limited teams because he was scheduled to follow Jefferies. Then I benched him because I didn’t want to waste a start when Daulton was scratched.

Now I’ve seen everything STEALS GOT A FACE at Razzball!

according to your Player Rater he is worth $24.2 … $25.3 coming from Steals

that’s right that means he is giving you negative value in…

Runs
HRs
RBI
AVG

with the only value coming from Steals

So go ahead and throw out the OBP comment if it was too complicated for you…

If we are just talking Risk…early Risk at that…the two you chose are two of the riskiest.

I’m not even saying don’t draft them…but you can’t argue the huge risk.

Grey 2 days left for a h2h championship. Currently leading 5-4. I have a healthy lead in HR, R and RBI. Trailing in BA — to help in BA, would you bench Votto and Castellanos today against Scherzer? I would replace Castellanos with Rosario (who might be benched tonight) but no replacement for Votto, so potentially playing short two bats today. Not ideal, but Votto and Cast are slumping hard and facing Max who’s been dominant the last month. Is this worth it to help BA or is this too cute?

If I sit any of them I’m looking at Rasmussen or Reynaldo instead (or 2-starters Chris Ellis, Jake Woodford or Josh Rogers off the waiver pile).

Streamonator has Buehler 195th but his #s in COL are actually quite good this year in 2 GS so I’m rolling with him. Rasmussen likely gets TOR (#1 vs RHP, natch) and maybe just maybe a 2nd GS vs MIA (#28 vs RHP), so obvi he’s only an option if he’s getting that 2nd GS. Rey-Lo should be @ either DET or CLE (#s 22 and 23, respectively), which is great except he just stunk it up vs LAA #17. Ellis @PHI15TEX26, Woodford @[email protected], Josh Rogers @[email protected] All 3 pretty good, Rogers the best (if schedules hold; I’m finding one of the worst parts about 2-GS streamers is how often their schedules don’t play out as anticipated). Rest of my P are:
Scherzer
Clase
Webb
Pressly
TAnderson
Gibson
Luzardo
Floro
Wick (has finally looked dominant of late, although after last night I’m rethinking him)

Yes, we start 12 pitchers every week.

Nor I. Doesn’t feel like a championship-caliber back of the rotation. Thanks for your thoughts! Separate question: are you through with D Price and/or A Heaney in a full dynasty (10-team, 100-man rosters, keep forever)? I hate hate HATE 2-Face Heaney lol. But next year, maybe he goes somewhere and pulls it together? My theory is he’s on drugs and can’t find a supplier (or is suddenly getting tested or something) in NY and that’s how he’s managed to get markedly even worse. Admittedly, though, this theory is based mostly on the Tyler Skaggs saga…

In a points league and need to reactivate Winker, thinking of dropping Ke’Bryan Hayes to do so.
While I’m at it, thinking about jumping on either Lane Thomas or Jesus Sanchez and riding the hot bat through the weekend. Drop candidates include Charlie Blackmon (hasn’t been great, not sure if he turns it around over the weekend), Alex Verdugo or Austin Meadows. I realize those are all big names but I’m in a must win situation in order to get me to the championship next week and none of them have been lighting it up the past week.

Two more – Drop Didi Gregorious for David Fletcher, A. Mondessi or Luis Garcia?
Drop Votto for Longoria or Dalbec?

Thanks so much in advance!
