You can think whatever you want about Juan Uribe. I don’t care what anyone thinks, he is one of the most unique players in baseball. A classic character from yesteryear. He has to be a latin 50. Have you seen a pic of him? His player page said 36… looks more like 56. But I ain’t hatin’. Have you seen how this pimp rolls? He works that cardigan harder than no other! To elevate his pimptatude even more is his love of slapping bones, which from what I hear is his clubhouse racket. Ryu looks locked in, kinda like the way he pitches. He must of been pissed when they traded Uribe since I heard they are boys. Enough about what a badass Uribe is off the field, I like him this week and below I’ll go over why. He’s a one of a kind playa’! Before moving on, I couldn’t believe how many songs have “one” in the title. It’s kinda cray. One of my favorites is a cover of a popular band redone by another popular artist and he kills it. And before you think anything, I don’t like the band he covered. I just wanted to put that out there. One more cut from the man with one in the title. Okay, I’m done. I will go back to the misery of having lost Springer and Miggy in the ‘perts league. I’ve been doing heavy doses of the blues, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash. I miss you guys! *wipes tear* Grey dodged a bullet there.

This week the 2.1% owned Juan Uribe gets my stamp of approval for creeper status, even though he should be owned (3 dongs in the last week). Hot is what it is, it doesn’t have to make sense, but when you have had man muscles as long as he has you must sit back and not question it. Since moving to the Braves on May 27th he has raised his batting average from .238 to .280, has hit 5 of his 6 home runs, and increased his slugging from .298 to .414. On the bill is three games at hitter friendly Miller Park and four games at Coors. Yummy! He faces six right-handers this week, which would usually throw some caution at me, but when I looked him up, he actually hits better against righties over the last three years (.292 vs RHP vs .234 vs LHP). The Hitter-Tron gave him a $11.3 value for the week, I looked after I chose him, so at least for now I’m back to being on good terms with that steel-sodomizing hit projector. If you are not feeling Uribe in Milwaukee, he doesn’t have the best success there, then you might want to take a stab at Ike Davis who opens the week with three games at the Yankees and gets three right handers. Most notable Eovaldi who he bats .385 against with 2 knocks.

Creepy Frankencatcher: Obviously you want to get A.J. Pierzynski into the line-up for the Colorado series and at 19.7% owned could very well be available in your league. If you don’t feel like using him against the Brewers then I would be utilizing the hitter-tron for Monday, Tuedsay and Wednesday. If you don’t want to do that then batty call dongers like Uh oh Chirinos, Three Flowers, and Beef Wellington. They are always good one day calls.

Last week I started to make a point about needs and want to drive it home this week. Starting at player 80 til the end of the rankings, it becomes a needs based list. I decided to add the guys who are just on the cusp of cracking the 100 but have a question mark or two I don’t like. I’m not saying one is better than any of the others but it becomes what they are worth to you. To be honest, we can even go as high as number 61 on my list (Billy Hamilton) depending on the size and competitiveness of your league. After certain comments the past few weeks it got me thinking that I need to explain the bottom ranks in more depth. At a certain point in the season it becomes more about need than value. If you are killing it in dongs then you don’t need to grab Marlon Byrd and instead might want to use a Ben Revere if speed is your need. Maybe, like me, you lost both Giancarlo and Springer in one league and Miggy and Springer in another this past week and need to fit Valbuena and Hurricane K-arter in your line-up to keep pace with home runs. There are too many scenarios to list but I hope you get the gist of what I’m saying. So if you don’t like where I ranked Justin Turner compared to Leonys Martin then at least you understand that the number on the left is really meaningless when comparing those two. They are all just one big needs based clusterf**k!

I start the GIF’s this week on a sad note. Springer was suppose to be my savior in the ‘perts and writers league this year but instead he ripped out my heart with his broken wrist. Actually I thought I broke my own wrist when I punched a hole in my wall and caught part of the stud. After posting a fabulous June (19/6/12/2/.321) we are left holding our heads as the tears run down our cheeks. I’m getting really tired of all these hitters going down. Dear tuxedo shirt Jesus, can we get another Tommy John up in here and stop taking all the hitters? Funny this brings me to another point: LUCK! Many have argued there is no luck in FBB but is this really true? Freak injuries happen and it’s just the way it goes. The only “science” involved in here are the MRI’s and treatments to get them back on the field. I’m kidding of course, it’s like a 70/30 split IMHO. The best teams I ever had have been the one’s with the fewest injuries. It’s just reality. The best you can do is batty call his spot to death and hope for the best. The batting average might kill you but the counting stats can be had. Follow our DFS writers and use hitter-tron every day to gain the greatest advantage over your leagemates.

How is it possible for Justin Turner to watch himself? Where is his DeLorean? This picture is a screen shot from the D-Backs game this past Wednesday. I have a hard time with how to rank Turner. He has been outstanding since I gave him the Creeper treatment and at 64% owned is making me wonder what is wrong with the other 36% of the people living under a rock. That being said I have my reservations with the Dodgers and playing time going forward. Before his surge they wanted to limit his time and not play him every day but with the looming promotion of Corey Seager and Hector Olivera I am left with some questions. Does he bump Gonzo at first once a week? What about Callapso, the guy they traded Uribe for? Does he play some outfield too? I have no idea and there could end up being a massive log jam real soon. Honestly, I think someone gets traded (hopefully Guerrero to an AL club or Callapso to who really cares club) but something has to give eventually. If you own him via the free agent pool then enjoy the ride but I wouldn’t be trading very much to obtain him.

    I am in a 16 team redraft weekly points league and have just taken over first place in my division…. I want to trade beltre….i feel I need to upgrade at SP to truly make a run…. I have boeagarts who I can put at 3b and yunel Escobar to play SS….I also want to free up space to stash corey seager…. Should I hold beltre and see if he comes around or try and use his name and reputation to upgrade at SP….I currently have King felix, Chris Archer, Lance McMullers, Clay buckholz and taijuan walker starting… And Steven matz, iwakuma, and Trevor Bauer on the bench…. I’m solid at every position….. And when pedroia comes back, I can slide boeagarts to 3b……I really don’t need beltre but I don’t want to trade him and watch him start hitting bombs for one of my contenders…. Thoughts?

      @tals23: If the return is right then its worth the risk for moving Beltre. What are some possible options?

  2. J Dubber says:

    With Soler coming off the DL today, does he crack the 100? If so, what range?

  3. Derrick says:
    (link)

    Beltre, A. jones and Storen for Arenado (can be kept for one more season).

    Arenado is the only player that can be kept. Standard 5X5 12 man.

    Kelly Johnson or Juan Uribe in Colorado. Hittertron likes kelly a litte more.

      @Happyharry: Id go for Matz upside

  6. Gareth says:

    I literally just added Uribe and was going to come here and recommend him in your creeper post.

    Great minds think alike!

    Mind you, when you have a guy with decent power facing 3 days of weak brewers pitchers in a nice hitters park and then a 4 game series @corrs to round out the week – it becomes a pretty logical choice!

    Hey J-FOH Thanks yet again!

    Need to pick up an outfielder, unless you have some updates on Revere and Marte that I don’t know about??

    Not a sexy list 14 team H2H roto league, looking at Marisnick who just came back off the DL, Clint Robinson, Daniel Murphy and Guyer. Who do you think?

    and who do I drop, no DL spots!

    Aoki-Wada-Weaver?

    Noticed you consistently rank Encarnacion lower than Justin Upton. I have first base depth and was thinking of trading for an outfielder. Would E-5 to get Justin Upton be a good deal or an overpay?

    Who would you rather have rest of season purely in a vacuum?

    Just did a trade in the rcl.

    I give Carrasco

    Votto at 31? Joey hasn’t done anything since Hector was a pup. Classic example of a player who has thrown in the towel….along with his cousin Jay Bruce at 46. What am I missing here? Possible I was absent that day?

    • Gareth says:
      (link)

      @Chucky: some chucky cheese on display there.

      Votto is slumping at the moment. He’s human. I’m sure he has a some upcoming 2 homer games on the horizon when he slump busts.

      As for Bruce……last 15 days he’s hit .255 with 2 home runs. Sounds about right. Overall, apart from his average his stats look pretty good (especially compared to last year ).

      Either you love or hate the Reds. I can’t quite work it out.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Chucky: If you noticed we have a ton of players from the list on the DL, so based on needs they get bumped. Jay’s batted ball profile screams he has a big second half, like he usually does, and I could care less about the Reds

    Owner of Tulo has proposed Wong, CMart & Hahn for Tulo & Cervelli (possibly ok w/ CMart & Wong straight up for Tulo as well)

    Owner of Correa could swayed to trade Correa, Lucroy, Hughes FOR (CMart/Harvey), 2B Wong, Springer, & Alex Wood

    I know he hit a home run yesterday, but halfway through the season are we really still under the illusion that Steven Souza is a top-50 player still? He has shown flashes of talent but come on, there’s like at least 10 other guys who’ve been much better than him on this list. I’m having a hard time understanding his permanent spot at #48.

    • J-FOH says:

          @Gareth: I like ET but not top ten material. It’s more like bore of the rings. Never seen as good as it gets. UP is good but not top ten. There are other animated movies I prefer

    Hi, would you rather start Shelby Miller (@COL) this week, or Doug Fister (vs. CIN, @BAL)? I really dislike Fister this year but he has two starts and Miller has to pitch in Coors. Thanks

    I’m in a bind…

    I was offered Brantley, Moose, and Sano

    For

    Yelich and Marte

    I’m so weak on power in this league and finally dropped Desmond, yet, I am well rounded and have solid SP and went 8-1 this week and should move from 5th to 3rd or 4th and have been solid all year in a 12 Team H2H 5X5 Standard scoring.

    If I lose Marte, I could potentially be screwed.

    I own Abreu, Wong, Arenado, Kalhoun, Marte, Aybar, Yelich, Kendrick, Pillar, Vogt. That’s my lineups.

    What would you do?

    I’m afraid he’s gonna retract his offer is why I ask.

    Thank you!!!

      @TarmanGotHim: I like that deal for you in a H2H

    In another league where I was in 1st all season, but two horrid weeks moved me to 3rd, but way in front of 4th and 1st and 2nd only gained a game on me this week…

    I was offered his

    Dozier, McHugh, and Peralta

    For my

    Betts and Grilli

    I own Tolleson, K Rod and Storen

    My team

    Norris, Abreu, Betts, Donaldson, Crawford, Upton, Cruz, Joc, Yelich, Souza, and Reddick.

    what to do with Duda? talk about a slump.

    based on your rankings, i will sit on him a bit longer.

    thanks keep up the great work.

    Colabello is on your list….nice. You lost Springer, but I lost Rendon, Springer, then Miggy in succession. May be too much to overcome.

    My question is this…happy to plug Cola at 1b while Miggy is out, but….look at his logs for the last week. He sat quite a bit even though he hasn’t really cooled off, and is hitting righties and lefties for over a .300 clip.

    This is concerning, as I can’t afford to keep him if he’s playing half-time, no matter how nice his half-time stats are. What gives?

    Thanks!

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @greg: Rendon did nothing for you all year so its not really a loss. Just a bad pick and we all have those. I went and looked at the box scores and it looks like Smoak and Navarro are cutting into his time. But he’s still hitting well. Id try to find a way to platoon him at first

      • greg says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Ha….but any team that loses springer and miggy (or some combo with Stanton) has taken a big hit to there championship aspirations….agreed? I bet you do…..lol

    Great stuff as always!

    I’m looking to fill my utility spot in my 12 team weekly H2h league. (No negative pts for Ks)

    Who’s the best out of these?
    Cesar Hernandez, Byrd, Wonder Tommy Pham, Devon Travis, CJ Cron?

    Thanks!

      @david: Byrd for H2H

    Is Khris Davis worthy of your DL list, or am I vainly holding onto him?

      @Scott: Welp, that settles it. Josh Harrison is on DL now, so Khris has got to go. Either him or D’Arnaud.

    Not playing you and Grey off eachother, just made some bad decisions in the past so getting as many angles as I can….Grey thinks Bour is better option over Cola for Miggy replacement…because Smoak and Valencia have cut into Cola’s time…..

    I believe you said hold, ’cause (rightfully so) Cola’s stats haven’t dipped at all.

    Is his defense suspect? Guess they have so much offense they can afford to leave a .335 hitter with power on the bench 1/3 of the time….oh my Giant’s are so jealous….

    My own thought has been Joe Maurer….little bit more pop lately and his runs and rbis are great as ever….

    Final answer….? ;)

      @greg: there is no possible way to platoony tunes, what is the bottom 5 pitchers on your team ?

      • greg says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Well, I’d say I don’t HAVE bottom 5….lol….SP is where I’m fine, but so many “hot shots” this year, can’t move any for bats:

        SP: Archer, DeGrom, Kluber, CMart, Matz, JoeFer, Bucholz, Erasmo

        I guess Erasmo, on fire, could go, though I actually think he’s figured it out and reaching his potential, but who do I platoon Cola with? Who gets the most time when he sits? Thanks!

          @greg: Mauers stats are still meh to me, 8 runs and 8 rbi’s in the last 30 days is nothing special. Is this daily moves?

          • greg says:

            @J-FOH:
            No sir…specs–14 team h2h 5×5 yahoo redraft.

            Yeah, you are right….41 RBIs near ASB isn’t bad, but guess rest of team isn’t complying or he isn’t timely.

            Eventually, I need to pack SPs because in our league, no innings max, come playoff time some teams stack to win w’s and k’s ’cause they can’t win in ERA/WHIP. Trying to get enough to stack up there and not lose out in ERA/WHIP. Because unless I can tread water, and Miggy and Springer (and even Rendon) come back and DO well….well, it’ll be pitching and luck that carries me.

            Guess it’s Smoak he platoons with….and other than that, 1bs out there are slim pickins: Bour, Cron, LoMo…..yeah. Cron might be worth watching, but I’m guessing you say go Smoak/Cola platoon is best option. Which pitcher would YOU lose? Eras?

            Peace!

              @greg: By the way, this is for a potential trade:

              1) You really think Duda will turn it around? Year end stat projection?

              2) Is CMart going to be on an innings restriction? Have heard so….

              3) Where do you rank Paxton as sp when healthy? Have always liked him….

              • J-FOH says:
                (link)

                @greg: I like Duda to hit at least 12 HR’s ROS, C-Mart os good but wouldn’t trade too much to acquire and Paxton is iffy to me. You might want to hit up JB on Pax
