Jung Ho Kang returned to the Pittsburgh line up after being sidelined since last September with a fractured tibia and what a return he had. Tibia shmibia! Kang came back with style, hitting two ding-dongs and going 2-for-4 with 3 RBI. Talk about gung ho! Talk about an obvious headline! What? You think you can do better? Go ahead and try. Please don’t I need that .0001% of a cent per page view every month if I want to afford my obsessive soba noodles and MOBA habit. Kang slashed .287/.355/.461 last season with 15 homers and 58 RBI.  If there’s a possibility Kang is somehow still available in your league now’s your chance because he won’t be long. Me suspects manager Clint Hurdle will ease Kang into the daily line up slowly, but if he keeps hitting dingers we should see him playing everyday sooner rather than later. From the looks of it, Kang is going to pick up right where he left off and be a valuable fantasy asset immediately.

Here’s what else I saw Friday night in fantasy baseball:

Gregory Polanco – 1-for-3, SB (3). I will type this very quietly on my holographic keyboard projector because I don’t want to jinx it , but Polanco bat third in this game and this makes me a very happy person. Now let’s not mention it again.

Francisco Liriano – 7.0 IP, 5 hits, 2 ER, 2 BB, 10 K, W. I’m not going to preach like I saw this coming, because it was actually my old drifter friend who sells me my psychedelic drugs who told me this would happen. I just relay this information. So yeah, can’t be sure this actually happened or if it was an acid flashback to 2011. Either way I own him all over and he is good at throwing baseballs right now.

Aledmys Diaz – 3-for-4, run. I told you to pick him up a few weeks ago and that remains my most impressive recommendation of the young season. Will there be even more impressive recommendations to come? Doubtful. But keep reading every week to find out!

Anthony Rendon – 1-for-4, HR (2). Rendon has been downright awful considering where you probably drafted him, but he does have two homers in the past week, and that’s a silver lining, Bradley Cooper. Now stop rejecting Jennifer Lawrence or I’m going to scream.

Daniel Murphy – 4-for-4, 2 runs. That’s right! There’s only room for one awesome middle infielder in the Nationals line up–Trea Turner.

Ben Zobrist – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 2 HR (5), 4 RBI. BenZo has now homered in three straight games with 14 RBI in the past week. Praise Xenu, a powerful thetan is bringing much ding dongs to Zobrist! Those auditing sessions are working, fam!

Max Scherzer – 5.0 IP, 7 hits, 7 ER, 3 BB, 7 K. This game reminded me of that part of Mad Max when the Road Warrior is chained to the front of that tank thing and the War Boys are siphoning his super blood into their veins. If only Max had some hot bionically-armed heroine in black face to come save him from the Cubs. For the glory of Valhalla, WITNESS ME!

John Lackey – 7.0 IP, 6 hits, 2 ER, BB, 11 K, W. Wen ur starting pitcher is WOKE. Woke af. We thought the Cardinals had brought out the best John Lackey but we hadn’t seen nothing yet, apparently. Lackey has a 40/10 K/BB ratio and a 1.09 WHIP. *Pro Tip* That will help your fantasy team!

Odubel Herrera – 3-for-5. Odie’s batting .400 over the past week, leading off for the Phillies. Pick him up before Garfield ships him off the Abu Dhabi.

Makiel Franco – 2-for-5, HR (6), 2 RBI. Franco has been struggling lately but after what seemed like a much needed day off Thursday let’s hope he’s back to hitting ding dongs and making bad movies with Seth Rogen.

Giancarlo Stanton – 1-for-3, HR (10), 2 RBI. I was going over ESPN’s Daily Notes, which I often do when I’m on the toilet and my ESPN Fantasy app freezes and won’t close (which it often does), and ESPN picked Giancarlo “I Love You But I’m Still Going to Kill You Someday” Stanton as the most likely player to hit  home run Friday night. Way to go out on a limb, ESPN! Nailed it!

Marcell Ozuna – 2-for-4. After a miserable start, OZUNA is batting .385 in the past week with three homers and a six game hitting streak. If you dropped him, or someone else did, now might be the time to scoop him back up.

Christian Yelich – 2-for-4, HR (4), 2 RBI. Oh hey, three Marlins! Go Fish! Marlins baseball: Get hooked!

Joey Votto – 1-for-3, HR (4). Hey JoVo. Nice of you to finally join us. Let’s turn it over to Canada’s top baseball analysts to see what they think. “Say Terrence, Votto’s got two homers in the past week and his BABIP is absurdly low. What say you, guy?” “Well, Phillip the only thing to do here would be to,” **FART** “Ahahahaha!” I see a buy low opportunity, budday!

Jordan Zimmermann – 8.0 IP, 7 hits, 3 ER, BB, 2 K. JZ has a 1.10 ERA, 1.05 WHIP through 41 innings. That almost makes up for him being cut from Drake’s new album.

Cole Hamels – 7.0 IP, 1 hit, 0 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, W. After the game, Cole celebrated by heading to 8 Mile and freestyle battled B. Rabbit. Unfortunately, he got food poisoning from some bad spaghetti but he should be good to go for his start next week versus the White Sox.

Rougned Odor – 3-for-5, HR (5), 3 RBI. What’s that Odor? That’s the sweet smell of a middle infielder batting close to .400 over the past week with two ding dongs. I know, I know, it smells surprisingly similar to Indian food, but it’s the middle infielder I swear.

Danny Salazar – 7.2 IP, 4 hits, 0 ER, BB, 9 K, W. Hail K-Zar! Wow, I really wish I drafted you. Your strikeouts make me want to be a better person.

Mike Napoli – 2-for-4, 2 RBI. Just like old Napoli! That’s amore! I mention Napoli not because I like him, but he tends to get crazy hot for stretches and he’s got a four game hitting streak with a homer and 8 RBI in the span. Now could be one of those hot stretches.

Marcus Stroman – 7.0 IP, 8 hits, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 K. I drafted Stroman as my ace on one of my many fantasy teams and I initially regretted it, but I’m starting to warm up to the idea a lot. However, that could just be the sweat lodge I’m currently writing this in. Warming up so hard. Oh hey, is that the devil? Why do you look like my dad? I think this is really starting to work!

Kenta Maeda – 6.0 IP, 2 hits, 2 ER, 4 BB, 7 K. Is it racist to compare Maeda to Hiroki Kuroda? Because they’re both Dodgers and…sigh, it is, isn’t it? OK, I will say nothing.

Brandon Drury – 1-for-5, HR (6). Grey just told you to BUY him, he’s got three homers in the past week! What do you mean you don’t read the BUY/SELL? You say only read Razzball for their amazing Saturday recaps? Wow, I am flattered, but I also don’t believe you.

Carlos Correa – 3-for-3, 2-run HR (5). Carlos hit this home run for the terminally ill child, Dillon, who asked that Jose Altuve hit one for him the night before. Greedymuch? Regardless, it looks like the Astros finally found a way to get things going. Dillon, can you ask Justin Upton to hit more home runs too? Also, Albert Pujols while you’re asking.

Ketel Marte – 2-for-3, 3 RBI, SB (3). I wrote pick up Ketel in my Evernote app and ended up grabbing a handle of vodka and totally forget about the Seattle infielder. Mistake. He is a hot little potato right now who’s hit safely in his past seven games and he’s available in about 70% of leagues. You don’t need to be drunk off vodka to know you should grab him, but it might help!

Melky Cabrera – 4-for-5, 3 runs, RBI. The Melk Man is batting close to .400 in the past week. You know it’s gotta be that secret stuff he’s been drinking. Don’t worry you can legally buy it on Cabrera’s very official looking web page. The site may or may not give you malware, but the stuff is there.

Brad Miller – 4-for-5, HR (3). Hard to recommend this guy he’s turrible lately, but what a game for dat boi! Do you guyz know dat boi? I told u I can memez just like the kids. O shizz waddup!

Drew Pomeranz – 5.0 IP, 1 hit, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, W. Pomeranz is da bomberanz! Hashtag goals AF. At least he is now that he’s pitching for San Diego. I like Drew as a spot starter, and the 10.85 K/9 is real pretty, but he gets the Cubs next week and I would avoid.

Jacoby Ellsbury – 0-for-0, run, 2 SB (9). D’Ellsbury doing what he does best–getting injured. This time sliding into third, but he got the stolen base for the record. Jacoby should return some time this weekend, but grabbing Aaron Hicks who was 1-for-2 with his first homer last night, might not be a bad idea in deeper leagues.

Xander Bogaerts – 2-for-5, run, SB (6). Awesome-X! I love you, X, but as we discussed during pillow talk last night, you’re going to have to start hitting home runs if you want to make that Pablo Sandoval money someday.

David Ortiz – 1-for-5, HR (7), 2 RBI. Did you guys know he’s retiring? It’s all over the televisions in case you didn’t. Ortiz was ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the ninth and could be facing a suspension. Perhaps the umpires didn’t hear he was retiring?

Jose Abreu – 1-for-4, HR (5). Your buy low window is quickly closing. Try propping it open with a phone book. Millennials: “What’s a phone book?”

Brett Lawrie – 2-for-5, run, RBI. Lawrie has been three times flame emoji lately, with 3 homers, 10 runs and 7 RBI in the past two weeks. I don’t have to tell you to pick him up because he’s probably already taken. Now who’s late to the party!? Not me. I wasn’t even invited!

    Grey told me to lose kang and keep Cozart yesterday… Did I make a big mistake

      @Kendrick Llama: No Cozart has been awesome lately. I like both

    Saw Gattis was sent down to prepare for Catcher duty..

    Have a lot of options at C – who would you go with ROS in an OPS league?

    Salty, d’Arnaud, Gattis, Realmuto, Gomes, Wieters

    Thanks!

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Clive: Should make Gattis a bit more valuable. OPS league, wieters or d’arnaud

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Clive: Catcher doesn’t matter unless you own Posey. Is he still catching or pitching?

      Anyhoo, rotate catchers for ones that hit. Realmuto would be my pick then Wieners

    Would Saunders and Porcello for Herrera be giving up too much?

    Saunders is on my bench (starting OF is Bruce, Conforto, Piscotty, Leonys).

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Alex: go for it if you are fine with it

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Alex: Seems like your overpaying a bit but its fair if you want Herrera enough.

      • Alex says:
        (link)

        @Dan Pants: Thanks. I actually cancelled the offer. Ozuna was available, so I dropped Saunders. And I figured I’d keep Porcello since Carrasco is out, and I’m rostering Glasnow.

  4. Scott Kimmel says:

    Hey Felica

    I’m concerned about Harvey. It might be time to trade him. Who can I get starting pitching wise that would be fair trade value for him?

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Scott Kimmel: Archer, Salazar, Darvish,

      Try those or keep him. I like Salazar & Archer for the high K/9

      • Scott Kimmel says:
        (link)

        i got an offer with Walker but this is the guy with the killer pitching staff with Kershaw Arrieta and others

        • Bye Felica says:
          (link)

          @Scott Kimmel: nah I’d pass on that

          • Scott Kimmel says:

            came back with ZG

            • Toe Knee Arm Ass says:
              (link)

              @Scott Kimmel: Who cares what the other team has. Make a trade that you are comfortable with. Grey already told you not to trade for Grienke. If that guy won’t give you what you want for Harvey then don’t trade with him .Try someone else or hold.

            • Bye Felica says:
              (link)

              @Scott Kimmel: You know you can play fantasy sports without trying to trade guys every day right? Sometimes you have you have to wait to let guys get hot then trade them after a 1 hit shutout, 2 homer game, etc.

              • Toe Knee Arm Ass says:
                (link)

                @Bye Felica: I think this guy keeps asking everyone the same questions till someone tells him what he wants to hear.

                  (link)

                  @Toe Knee Arm Ass: Yeah i see him asking the same trade in every article. Maybe hes lonely? Lol

                (link)

                i know felica. but i have gotten burned too many times to count on making trades. SO i get gun shy to and worry about buyers remorse. Thats why i ask

    Cardinals get Kang banged. I share in their butt hurt as my activating him from the dl doesn’t take effect until today.

    Great read as always – part of the Saturday routine.

    Have Baez, should I hold or move to pick up Schoop or Ketel Marte for my SS/2B slot?

    Lastly, drop Granderson for Ozuna or hold?

    Keep up the great work – have a good weekend.

    • Wanderball says:
      (link)

      @Wanderball: Apologies, Cozart is available for 2B/SS slot as well.

        @Wanderball: i rather have Coz over Baez

    6×6 (AVG and OBP) HTH Weekly

    Drop Holliday for Byung-ho Park?

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: I love the power Park possesses. He feels like a 30 bomb hitter similar to Carter.

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: This is close for me but I’d want park for his power.

  11. Abdoozy says:
    (link)

    Yaknow everybody hatin on Trevor Story for his abysmal K rate, but has anyone noticed that in the last week Harper has whiffed 13 times in 30 PAs? Has the hole in his swing been discovered at last, or to put it another way, did they finally figure out its a good idea not to throw him fastballs?

    And would you consider this an opportunity to sell, or would that be a clown move, bro?

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Abdoozy: Selling for who? Trout or Arenado?

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Abdoozy: Sell Harper or Story? I’d want both

      • abdoozy says:
        (link)

        @Dan Pants: I have both, and Trout, and Rizzo, so my question is a bit facetious. But there are days I wish my league had a K kategory for hitters…

        that said I’d consider trading Harper for Arenado or Stanton and a decent SP. Maybe. I just want him to stop striking out. And whaddyaknow, today he had three walks and didn’t K once! Maybe he reads Razzball.

  12. Nittanychris says:
    (link)

    ROS only, standard 5×5 Roto categories, who do you prefer?
    Randal Grichuk or Kevin Pillar?
    Thanks!

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Nittanychris: two different skillsets. One is a all or nothing hitter, the other is a hit for avg and swipe a bag or two per week guy. I don’t like either in a 12er honestly.

      Grichuk for power shitty avg/ Pillar for avg/steals

      • Nittanychris says:
        (link)

        @Bye Felica: Agreed. I already have Khris Davis, who is similar to Grichuk, and I’m leaning toward keeping him. So I could use the avg/steals. These moves are all for my bench depth in a 12 team mixed league. Thanks!

        • Bye Felica says:
          (link)

          @Nittanychris: Yea i wouldn’t worry about carrying bench bats with no upside. I’d stash a prospect like Glasgow or Trea Turner, Reed, etc
          Depending on needs. I don’t use bench bats i run out top shelf set up guys like Oh, Nerris, for ratios. I have 7 RP rostered and Turner stashed because i lost Dee Gordon and needed the steal upside.

  13. Derek Jetah says:

    Ozuna or Neil Walker ROS. Thanks!

  14. Sam says:

    DP, a guy in my league (std roto 5×5 – 14 team, 27 man rosters — auction style with price escalation) was selling off his assets for keepers, and the guy who is currently at the top got Stanton. So I made this deal: my Franco (keep at $12.. then 18.. 25) and Salazar (15.. 22.. 29) for McCutchen (unkeepable imo) and K.Bryant (44). Did I do the right thing trading off such a good asset in Franco to try and stay alive this season (my team is stacked either way for now and going forwards with a core including Correa, Machado, Seager (Corey), Thor, Maz, Familia and reasonable prices on Hosmer, Polanco, Yelich, Brantley, Revere, Enzo Cain and Pederson)?

    Harper, Crush, Frazier are a combined 4-45 this week and I’m still up 6-4 somehow. My pitching is carrying me this week with 5 wins, 8 saves, 56K’s, and a 0.86era & 0.92 whip

    I’m in love with Joe Ross. However my pitching in H2H pts league is rather weak. Was offered Liriano and Berrios for him. No brainier take the trade right???? Or is Ross to legit for the inconsistency of liriano and the definite up and downs of Berrios this year? Thanks for any insight all.

    Urias might be getting called up but only for bullpen work. Any chance this kid becomes a starter this year? Time to pull the trigger on Reed and Glasnow yet in 10 team points league with daily line up changes?

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @MyHerreraBurns: Sure, if he performs well in relief and the right injury occurs maybe it could happen. I’d hold on Reed and Galsnow for now in 10 teamers.

    I am with you on running out some elite set up guys. Neris and O’Day on multiple teams. Looking to add another and drop Santana ( had him at MI while Panik was banged up). Do we like Phelps or Barraclough? Phelps seems to get the saves when Ramos is unavailable so leaning him. But, Barraclough looks great as well. Thanks.

    Three-team trade, league w/ SLG:
    Team 1 trades Trumbo, gets Corey Seager
    Team 2 trades Seager, gets Stroman

    Diaz
    K-Marte
    Al Escobar
    Cozart

    I was offered Diaz for Russell, turned it down but am now considering offering Russell for Diaz. The rookie factor is a concern though. Think Diaz is solid enough in StL to not be sent down if he has a cold streak?

    was offered DeGrom for Franco and Nola in a dynasty league. Franco sits on my bench behind Bryant so really about value he has, and is Nola for real or not? FA pickings are slim (with the generated roster spot i would either go Soler, McHugh who was just dropped and needs to clear waivers, or a prospect like Bergman or a mid level SP prospect like Carson Fulmer or Dillon Tate)

    Should i pull the trigger…

    I have Starlin Castro as my 2B, should I grab Brandon Phillips from FA?

    Also, which SP do you recommend ROS?
    Conley, Tillman, Graveman

    I’m in 12 team H2H 6×6 (OBP and BB)

    Thanks!

    I just dropped Panik for Cozart. How’d I do? Haven’t read much about Panik this year on Razzball . I’ve stayed loyal to Panik for that past few seasons, so it was tough.

      @Alex: Would you have gone with Cozart or Drury? Been feeling very indecisve..

        Dan Pants says:

        @Alex: Cozart for right now, you made the right call

      • Alex says:

        @Alex: Sonofa… Even Dannys Santana is available.

        How about this.. Cozart, Drury, or Santana for the rest of the season? If anything, I need steals if Leonys lets me down.

          @Alex: Not sure ROS but Cozart sounds good for now

    Hey Dan,
    How do you like starting Andriese tomorrow against the quiet Angel bats? Its either him or Cashner and I just don’t trust Cashner anymore.

    • JJ says:
      (link)

      @JJ:
      or J.LAMB vs MLW. Which of those do you like better. Need K’s and good ratios. Wins are a plus too. I know that Andriese just came off of a 14k performance albeit in the minors.

      • Dan Pants

        Dan Pants says:

        @JJ: It’s risky for sure, but I like Andriese’s upside over the other too.

    Hey bud nice work, I just made a trade that I am not sure how I feel about. It’s a H2H categories league with average and OBP being two of those and I am thinking about trading my Justin Upton for his rich Hill and trea turner (we have a minor league system where I would be able to keep him down and save him for next year without having to draft him, he’d be a stash). I would then pick up Odubel herrera who is the 6th ranked OF right now. I am sick of Justin Upton but am I selling too low? Thanks bud.

    Who is the first catcher called up in your opinion? W.Contreras, Tom Murphy, A.Knapp, M.Zunino, G.Sanchez, R.McGuire, Hedges, Alfaro, Pentecost, Tyler Stevenson??? Or do I just ride Curt Cassili?

    It’s a 10 team mixed roto (2 catchers). Also why wouldn’t they at least give Urias a few shots at starting with Wood already having middle relief experience.

    Also do you believe Jose Reyes will get playing time when he returns??

    Trea Turner, Baez, Kang, Reyes or JP Crawford rest of season

    Great stuff! So I was wondering what ur thoughts are on Pujols. I have Rizzo at 1st and Carter as my utility.. it was supposed to be Pujols. I’ve been trying to trade him with no luck. Would you just drop him at this point for a hot waver wire pick-up? Or hold incase he gets hot. If his name wasn’t Albert Pujols he’d already be off my roster.

    • Papa Jean Segura says:

      @Peterk: he did the same thing last year, got off to a slow start then hit 40 HRs. I won one league partially because someone dropped him and I claimed him off waivers. For what it’s worth, I would definitely hold him even in an 8 team league. He is still one of the greatest hitters in the last 15 years.

      @Peterk: Yeah, don’t drop albert pujols.

    How would you rank Travis Shaw, Matt Duffy, and Kendrys Morales? 6 hitting cats (BA, Hits, HRs, Runs, RBIs, and SBs)
