The Dodgers vs. Mariners series is a possible October matchup in April, or as I like to call it, “Who Will Mrs. Seager Love More? Kyle or Corey?” And it produced a fantastic start by Julio Urias (7 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 1 walk, 11Ks, ERA at 2.81). You could even say eye-opening. Seriously, though, he looks great. Not him looking, necessarily. Seattle’s a pretty terrible offense right now. I saw Kyle Seager batting third, and I was like dubya tee eff on that my man, but then I looked at rest of the lineup, and there was no one else I would’ve put in that slot. They’re hitting two catchers in one lineup, like that’s a thing. Side note: That’s not a thing. Urias, though, I said this after his first start of the year, and I will say again after this awkward preamble, if I could go back to the preseason, I’d make him my sneaky NL Cy Young pick. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Mookie Betts – X-rays came back negative on his forearm, and it proves the tchotchkes you have collected over the years that you pray to work.

Marco Gonzales – 7 IP, 1 ER, 2 hits, 1 walk, 6 Ks, ERA at 6.04. There’s the normie number three starter we all thought we were drafting. That’s all, just be normie. All anyone could ask from a number three. Streamonator hates his next start, but the Astros don’t scare me.

Kyle Lewis – 0-for-3 as he was activated from the IL. Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “I like muffins, so I thought calling Sarah in HR ‘muffin top’ was a compliment, but two weeks paid vacation sounds good.”

Juan Soto – Hit the IL with a strained shoulder. *closes laptop, opens window, jumps out, lands one flight below in rose bush, screams in pain, cries for five hours, stands up* I’m fine now. Totally good.

Josh Bell – 1-for-3 and his 1st homer. Well, I’m glad the Nats were able to find offense elsewhere–*quickly changes to anger*–Of course I don’t care the Nats found offense elsewhere! I only care about Juan Soto!

Patrick Corbin – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA down to 10.95. Sonavabench! I guess that’s good though. The other scenario is he pitched poorly again, and we had to drop him. Now, we can start him next time out and watch him ride our ratios hard and put them to bed wet. In all seriousness, he was getting hit hard in the 1st, but settled in and his velocity was just about 91 MPH, so, well, it’s okay. Not great. Start by start basis still.

Adam Wainwright – 7 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 5.03. “Are you going to hold the ball all day or you gonna pitch it?” “I’m not sure I know…how.” “Is it a confidence thing?” “No, it’s a ‘I have no arms or legs’ thing.” That’s a jar with Adam Wainwright’s soul resting on the mound in the year 2197 talking to a 215-year-old Molina.

Lance Lynn – Tony La Russa is optimistic about Lynn returning as soon as his IL stint is over. La Russa is also optimistic about the reintroduction of the beaver in the southern hemisphere. Wink, wink.

Carlos Rodon – 5 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners (5 BBs), 8 Ks, ERA at 0.47. The Ghost of Johnny Vander Meer was like, “Oh, get out with this start. You dug me up for this?” Which makes you wonder, why was a ghost buried? Also, this is everything that’s wrong still with Rodon’s game. He’s going to have his breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch handed to him one of these starts with that command.

Jose Abreu – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 3rd and 4th homer, hitting .221. Mickey Mouse MVP gettin’ goofy with himself.

Zach Plesac – 5 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 6.75. My pleading eyes were on Plesac, asking him please, please, Plesac, and that was fruitless like rhubarb pie. Now that we have a bit more of a sample, it’s clear he’s struggling with his fastball and slider. The slider is the biggest worry because that’s the one that was “Lights out, I have to be up early!” and now it’s “nightlight adjacent.” Don’t think any leagues are shallow enough to drop him, but concern is high.

Jordan Luplow – 1-for-2, 2 runs, and his 5th homer, and 3rd homer in the last four games. Hot schmotato alert!

Jameson Taillon – 5 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.40. *opens multiple websites, reads headline multiple times, closes them* Wow, the Yankees won? Streamonator dislikes Taillon’s next start, but I honestly see no reason to not start him. Of course, I’m using my gut, which I just confused by eating Burger King chicken fries.

Gio Urshela – 2-for-3, and his 2nd homer. Chased a bit to hit a double, but then went mollywhopping for a 437-feet homer on a Morton 4-seamer, so might be the start of something, but was next to nothing coming in — that’s what she said derisively!

Alec Bohm – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .230. Oh don’t let Bohm get hot! (Please get hot.) I said you best not let my man Bohm get hot! (Please for all that is holy.)

Brad Miller – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer, as he took over for Jean Segura, who left with a strained quad. Odd thing to find in a colander. Miller seems like a quick and dirty add in NL-Only leagues, but I’d want to see more in mixers.

Jake McGee – 1 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 2.89, as he was activated from the IL. McGee spent less time on the IL for the Giants than I spent on the toilet evacuating the San Fran Oracle Park garlic fries from my insides.

Buster Posey – 3-for-4, 3 runs, and his 3rd and 4th homer. I was kidding the other day about catchers and their homers, but do catchers have more homers than any other position? I’m seriously losing my mind.

Alex Dickerson – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer. The last time a Dickerson did that well in Philly was against an old and busted Jaworski. Grey knows football (from around 1983 to about ’87)!

Tommy La Stella – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer. Launch Angle Stella is on the board, and on pace for, like 17 homers, which, honestly, sounds about right. Get ’em, Launchy!

Chris Paddack – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.50. Ticker shock. He actually gave up five runs, but four were unearned. That start is expressed by saying, “Good?”

Christian Yelich – Counsell said, while holding the microphone in a strange manner, that Yelich was doing a lot of activity. Yeah, same, brah.

Billy McKinney – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer, and 2nd in as many games. Hot schmotato alert!

Corbin Burnes – 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 hits, zero walks, 10 Ks, ERA at 0.37. Okay, we got it. You’re starting the All-Star Game. Whoop-dee-doo!

Jon Gray – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.42. Confession alert! Not only did I grab Gray — self love! — in mixed leagues, but I also started him at home, and *quietly so no one makes fun of me* I’m going to continue to do it. His peripherals have bounced back from last year, and he’s back to where he was when he was a perennial 3.80-ish ERA starter. Not incredible, but there’s value there in 15-team mixed and deeper.

C.J. Cron – 2-for-4, 5 RBIs and his 1st homer. “If we fill his pants with concrete, we can just put him in the driveway hole–Wait! He’s moving! Cron’s alive!”

Luis Garcia – 5 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.70. Podcaster Geoff (he’s no longer Ralph; I know, it will take some getting used to) is a big fan of Luis Garcia, which is why I have him on one very deep team. He has a lot of pitches, and a body that should be able to hold up to the rigors of pitching, i.e., he might be better for real baseball. Think he’s going to be without much hype, but could be a workhorse.

Nick Solak – 1-for-3 and his 4th homer. Solak is in the early lead for most comments asked about. Hey, I wrote a sleeper post for him, so, yeah, I like him, you ding dongs!

Shohei Ohtani – 4 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 6 BBs, 7 Ks, ERA at 1.04. Doing humma-na-humma-na noises thinking about combining Shohei’s Ks with Kohei’s command. Give me an Ohei, but sing it like Oh Yeah from Ferris Bueller.

Mike Trout – 3-for-4, 2 runs, and his 5th homer, hitting .385. In all my drafts, I was least excited about my first round pick of Mike Trout. I’m also apparently very stupid.

Albert Pujols – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer. Statcast measured his home run trot at 4.7 seconds, but he was taken around the bases by a Ford Mustang.

Austin Meadows – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer. This 14-7 game felt like a throwback to when the balls were dripping with juice. Mike Zunino (1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) hit his 3rd; Brandon Lowe (2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) hit his 2nd; Carlos Santana (2-for-4, 3 RBIs) hit his 3rd and neither starter made it out of the 2nd inning. Just good old fashioned baseball, like from 2019.

Max Kepler – Tested positive for Covid, along with Garlick and Thielbar, which means they will be out for at least a week and a half and… I’d… love… to… hear… anything …on… Alex Kirilloff. Geez, I can’t stall anymore here. What’s going on?

Mitch Moreland – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 1st and 2nd homer. Pretty sure if I drafted only Mitch Moreland and Mitch Garver in some of my leagues, I’d be doing better. Then I can go to work every day and be like, “What’s up, Mitches?!” And I can stare at the screen for hours, waiting for an answer.

Jesus Luzardo – 5 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 5.89. Great start, but — and sorry about the but, it goes everywhere I go — I wonder how well starters do in 7-inning games vs. 9-inning games. It feels like they do better. Maybe because psychologically they know they only have to go five innings? I don’t know, just stuff whistling between my ears.

Jake Diekman – 1 IP, 0 ER and the save, as Trivino pitched the 6th. That’s out of seven innings, so it’s not crazy, but it’s also a little crazy-making if you thought Trivino was just the sole closer.

Sean Manaea – 7 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.04. Told you to draft Manaea, still like him, but what’s really on my mind, how is he Samoan and not 450 pounds or rocking an apostrophe in the middle of his name? Is there a Ted Talk you can direct me to?

Bo Bichette – 2-for-4 and his 5th homer, hitting .279. My kingdom* for two 2nd round picks in every league, and no 1st round picks. *A 1985 Mark McGwire United States Baseball Team Topps card.

Randal Grichuk – 2-for-4 and his 2nd homer. I regret to inform you Grichuk is about to hit five homers in a week, then get in an argument about bat flipping and disappear for three weeks. Either that or I should’ve just drank the sediment at the bottom of my tea cup.

Eduardo Rodriguez – 6 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA 3.38. Knock on wood that I never got Covid, but if I did, I’d totally draft myself next year.

Xander Bogaerts – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .393. Don’t think he hits .400. I mean, dur. No one will ever. Unless Luis Arraez is traded to the Rockies. But if I were making a list of guys who could, Bogaerts would be in the top ten.

Trey Mancini – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 4th homer, hitting .206. See what I said about a half inch above for Ed-Rod, or six inches if a girl’s reading. Hey, five ladies!

Austin Hays – 1-for-4, 2 runs as he was activated from the IL. What about my Swedish applewine that I’ve been Mullins over? Oh, he’s still Mullins things over at leadoff with an 0-for-4, but forget that Scandy drama, Anthony Santander’s sprained his ankle. Whodunit?! A 1st base bag. It does say a lot about the O’s confidence in Hays that he was activated and not starting.

Miguel Rojas – 4-for-4, 2 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .327. Three singles and a triple. Damn, Miguel, you better woke up your fluidity, and become one throuple with no singles.

Lewis Brinson – 1-for-3, 1 run, as he takes over in center for Starling Marte. Brinson should get everyday playing time for a few weeks, and his 1-for-3 was his best game in five years.

Mike Moustakas – Hit the IL. Just a bunch of dry eyes in the house. Hopefully moistness returns soon.

Luis Castillo – 4 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 6.05. His velocity seemed to be fine, but those results are not a fire emoji under my fantasy team’s butt. What I’m hoping is, once the weather warms, so does Castillo.

Jake Arrieta – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.86. Our father who draws art in heaven of the hallowed fields of Wrigley, I bless Jake Arrieta, Latter-K Saint.

Taijuan Walker – 3 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners (6 BBs), 7 Ks, ERA at 3.21. You could’ve just signed your name on the mound, you didn’t need to act out “Walker.”

J.D. Davis – 2-for-3 and his 1st homer, hitting .385. It’s about time he did something–Oh, that’s right, the Mets have only played a week plus of games. Forget it.

Neil Walker – Retired from baseball. In honor of him retiring, I’m having a shot of Neil Walker Blue. Aged 12 years, so the mediocrity has a chance to mature.

Yasiel Puig – Signed with a team in the Mexican League. He got ran out of baseball like he was Pete Rose’s bookmaker. Now Yasiel him in MLB, now ya don’t.

    Still no trust at all in Luzardo?

      I think he pitched better because he was wearing glasses and not contacts. As soon as he shaves thunderbolts into his hair he will be a bonafide ace and will sleep with Matt Chapman’s wife.

        (link)

        Something tells me that Oakland babied their SPs too much in spring training with very low IPs and they all just started slow. Manaea threw about 15IP, but Bassitt 10, Luzardo 10 and Montas 8.

        They are all starting to come around.

    Good morning Grey. The dreaded catcher question. I have Yasmani not so Grand at all. Time to jump ship on him and pick up one of these free agents in 10 team league. 1) Omar Narvaez with the poor hitting Brewers. 2) Isiah K-F 3) Barnhart 4) C Kelly 5) Buster Ring Around the Poseys. Thanks.

    Grey!!!

    Loved the report!!

    a. Didn’t start Corbin either. I debated it and saw SON was positive (8.8 or something), but didn’t in the end. One other positive note, he was able to pound the strike zone and that’s crucial for a pitcher like him.

    b. Signed up Duvall over Sano that I just signed up yesterday over Wood. How’d I do? Hard-pressed to find a better player over the last 2 weeks.

    Just noticed that ESPN is now keeping track of position players pitching. Never happen of course, but it would be sweet for some marginal hitter t o become the closer.

    Even less likely to happen now with this rule: Position players are allowed to pitch only if a game goes to extra innings, or if their team is winning or losing by more than six runs. Though LaRussa did manage to slip Mercedes in when they were only 6 behind.

    Weekly lineups due today (12-team 5×5):

    1) Which three RPs to start? Rich-Rod, Cesar (don’t call me Exxon) Valdez, Tivino (no longer the closer with Deikman back?) and Dolis (was he ever the closer?)?

    2) which 7 SPs to start (or, if you’d prefer, which 3 to sit)?

    Gausman vMIA (SON $29)
    Urias vCIN ($21)
    2-start Maeda @OAK ($14) and @CLE ($8.5)
    2-start DeSclafini @PHI ($7) and vCOL ($29)
    Snell @LAD ($14.8)
    Ryu @TB ($20)
    Pablo Lopez @SF ($6.4)
    Ed-Rod vSEA ($11.6)
    Odorizzi vLAA ($1.9)
    Kikuchi @BOS (-$8.0)

    Kikuchi (bad matchup) and Odorizzi (hasn’t found his groove yet) are easy sits (I think). Tempted to ignore SON and sit Snell (LAD scares me) instead of Lopez or Ed-Rod.

    3) Pick 2 to SIT from

    Hampson (doesn’t play every day)
    Gimenez (see Hampson)
    Profar (cooled off?)
    IKF (see Profar)
    Eduardo Escobar (just picked up)
    Semien (ICE COLD – under .100 last week)

    4) Thanks for all you do.

    I own Olson, Goldy and Ohtani, but all three have either 1B and Util eligibility open to the three of them, and ultimately, I sit one of them every night. I feel like I should trade one. Which one would you trade in a points league? If you would trade, would you do this deal?

    I get Sonny Gray and Nick Solak
    I give one of Olson/Goldy/Ohtani, one of Paddack/Heaney

    Personally, I rank them: Olson, Goldy, Ohtani, but can swap Goldy and Ohtani….ultimately Olson is first I feel.

        Also heat check on Chapman – still early enough to stick with him? Last time your concern level was 2 out of 10. Would like your opinion since while I am worried, the options are limited – best available 3B are Shaw and Launch Angle Stella

    Corbin was on my bench yesterday. While this start looks good on paper, it could have been a lot worse. There were some hard hit balls amd he is getting anyone to chase his slider which has been his main strikeout pitch. I agree that we need to proceed with caution because he is not out of the woods yet. It still is going to take a lot for me to use him until I see more. It would be playing with fire imo right now.

    • i first read this thinking you meant Burnes and was like “Do you hate on pizza and chocolate too?”

      • toolshed says:

    Grey,
    I stashed F. Peralta as a RP until he became eligible for SP, our league has some weird rules.
    Now I’ve got to drop a SP, which one out of: Corbin, Means, and Eflin?
    Other pitchers are G. Cole, Wheeler, S. Gray, Mahle, and Gausman.

    FOMO has me second guessing which one to drop, because as soon as I do they’ll get claimed.

    It’s a H2H points league.

    Thanks

    Made a trade in my 10 team 5 x5 roto;

    A.Chapman & Blackmon for my Alcantara & McNeil

    I now have Solak manning 2B with a bench option of Kike or India. Its my weakest position so hopefully Solak is productive all year. My OF is stacked, Bryce, Castellanos, Blackmon, Ozuna, KLewis, Springer, Teoscar. When/if they are all healthy, 1 will be benched (Teoscar), or maybe traded.

    I was limping along with Hand & RRodriguez as my closers after I dropped Montero, so I felt getting Aroldis was a pretty big need. My starters are still solid; Bieber, Castillo, Gausman, Eflin, Mahle, Urquidy, Marco, Dunning.

    How did I do on the trade?

    There are memorable moments over the years in fantasy baseball. I would like to give Conor Brogdon a big middle finger for supplying one of those yesterday in my holds league. I picked him up in the morning and in the evening he gave up 6 ER in 2/3 of an inning?! The impressive part was managing to give up 2, 3 run HR’s in the same inning.

    It’s okay though, I’ll only need 14 scoreless innings from my bullpen to mitigate the damage.
    Ugh.

    My pitching rotation (H2H points) is mediocre, but my hitting is fantastic (when they aren’t all hurt). Thinking of offering Jared Walsh for Urias – I currently use Bohm at 1B and Walsh in RF.

    (link)

    Thanks for a great write up!

    I have four middling pitchers in Bassit, Means, Arrietta, Duffy. Was expecting at least one to be a clear candidate to drop for Lewis coming off the IL but I kind of want to keep them all. So I am needing to drop a bat between Swanson or Kepler.

    Keeping Swanson is the obvious choice I think but we are getting to the point where Kepler may put up better numbers without surprising me. Swanson also strikes out a lot more which my league penalizes me for.

    Either way we are talking a bench bat unless one of my other outfielders slips. Crazy to drop one of those bats to get Lewis playing in order to keep those pitchers? Which do I axe?

    I do have other pitching; Flaherty, Ryu, Eflin and Fried on IL but I am finding I need to max arms to keep up.

    TY Grey and Razzball community! <3

    • Funscombe says:
      (link)

      Should say there is really no interest in trading either of these guys for another arm at the moment. And because this is an IL spot I am freeing up for I actually do need a one way drop, somewhere. Trade not an option.

      • michael says:
        (link)

        Elfin, Arrieta and Means are worst, in order, by EV
        They all have Launch Angles from 13-17, so that’s a wash
        Barrell% is Means, Arrieta, Elfin, in order

        so one of those 3 should go at least by xstats

        • Funscombe says:
          (link)

          I know the pitchers are the worse quality players but the bats I mentioned are just going to be sitting on the bench. I’d rather take the weekly contributions from the arms, risky as they may be, than sacrifice those stats for a bench bat.

          Basically just asking whether I axe Kepler or Swanson for Lewis. (And hoping to confirm I am not crazy for wanting to keep the pitching, it’s always a close call for K’s, W’s, QS, so I want to minimize wasting roster slots on bench bats)

    Baseball stuff

    Tortuga is everything advertised and more. Vamanos Tortuga. The most entertaining player in baseball and it isn’t close. He hit a ball off Diekman in the 7th that would have been a home run anywhere and like I said it would yesterday the ‘seum was playing absolutely enormous yesterday especially after the sun went down.

    Really like Arraez. Twitchy, high energy. Rocket arm. Reminds me as a player of a pre-breakout Jose Ramirez, Not doing fantasy things right now but worth keeping an eye on. Has speed and looks like the hit tool. Really fun to watch.

    Luzardo came out lighting up 99 in the first. Had gold spikes on and game face. Guy has super high compete. Young pitchers just take time. He’s nowhere near failed prospect. The pieces are there. He’s going to be really frustrating for now I think.

    Corn dropped in my league – worth picking up?

    Seemed like there was a ton of buzz about him, especially playing half his games at Coors, but he looks a lot like the .190 hitter he was last year.

    • Lucky Dog says:
      (link)

      My Giants are such a weird scrappy team. I had zero expectations this year, so it’s pretty amazing to see them competing in the brutal NL West.

      Also, my most hated thing in the history of hated things about MLB is the advertisement on the back of the mound. I know it’s CGI, but I am offended by it. Backstop ads? Fine. Billboards all over the park? Great. But the mound is sacred. Get that shit off my screen you greedy bastards.

      I hate that more than I hate the lowered mound, runner at 2nd in extras, 7 IP double headers & the DH combined.

            these guys are hilarious, “i’ll just pitch through my torn elbow tendon”. also r.osuna best be careful which arm he’s hitting all those women with, that thing’ll heal even less not till surgery when doing that with your torn elbow tendon arm. yikes that i did draft lamet in ONE spot (it was fairly late though) a 16 teamer where i also went boyd (lucky so far on that one), dodged r.ray after going both of those 2 even though he sat at top of my SP board for probably more than 100 more picks (h2h so optimally you want 8 SP)

    NL only, i have s.howard in lone NA slot, if he’s being used in setup that means i either drop or keep over one of my 8 starters (QS over wins, max 4 RP, i waivered d.will lately (i was weak at RP 4, also have chafin/kimbrel/t.may (holds added)). want to add b.miller (somebody else will shortly if i don’t quick, i almost did last night when i added mckinney)

      Howard’s kinda whatever in middle relief, though I have him in an NL-Only

      • i don't want to brag but i got irritable bowel syndrome says:
        (link)

        right but the hesitation on dropping him which i’d have to do here to add anybody (b.miller or hilliard coming off waivers in about 8 hours, for lone bench bat till moustakas/wong/bader are back, stashed bader at seeing both d.fowler’s production (after alford’s) then also the STL non carlson OF) is like a.reyes, these both will start at some point (not sure how many innings PHI wants howard to get, but STL wants 80-100 out of reyes this year) is that he starts later. w.miley meanwhile would for sure get added, albeit howard probably would too to a team in worse shape at SP than me. (here assuming w.miley is my worst SP out of 8, which is actually really solid in QS 10 team NL only h2h)

      which duran (MIN SP or BOS OF). kirilloff easily over both anyway if dynasty.

      • Joe says:

        Bos. Not dynasty. Currently have Kiriloff. Hard to tell with MIN. Figure Duran could take over Franchy’s spot.

        • goodfold2 says:

          if not keeper or dynasty duran might play before kirilloff does.

    weird year so far on HOU and TB (TB’s upset by injuries for sure though) having not good bullpens, like at all outside of pressly/diego. nobody even knows on either who the actual 8th inning guy even is (with TB that is par for course somewhat though); as nobody has been good consistently at all, e.paredes looked easily to be at least 7th inning till he got hurt, b.abreu’s mostly been pretty good outside of lack of K’s (but isn’t getting leverage). j.smith supposedly thought to be 8th inning but he’s been destroyed almost entire year.
