I hope you don’t think I’m doing a BTO theme today with that title. I’m not Homer. When it comes to Canadian rock they are not my cup of tea, I’m a Guess Who fan. You know, the band where the “B” in BTO came from. The band loved in Almost Famous by Lester Bangs (played by Phillip Seymour Hoffman). Seriously, Live at the Paramount is one of my favorite live albums. From Pain Train to Sour Suite, the album hits it on lots of levels for me. Speaking of sour/sweet, I made a trade for Howie Kendrick this week by giving up Jason Grilli. Sweet! Now Howie’s got uncertain knee issue… Sour! Which leads me to my creeper pick, Justin Turner, and the opportunities that Mattingly can’t ignore. His usage patterns leave me very sour while the production of these “part-time players” is sweet! He said he doesn’t want to run Turner into the ground, unlike his bullpen, which Donny feels a need to regularly run into the ground. Yimi was such a beautiful creature of K/9. So please, take his usage with a bit of caution this week as I tell you to own him and get him in your line-up. But be careful of the sour/sweet.

This week the 9% owned Justin Turner gets 6 games with three at home against the d-backs and three on the road against the friars. Opening on Monday he gets 2 against right handers and one against his lone lefty for the week Robbie Ray. I point this out because as a right handed bat, he has been awful against lefties (.120 BA against) this year and could see the bench for this one if Donny plays the splits. Regardless of this uncertainty I like how well he has played against Arizona this year as he has a hit .333 and has dongs against both right handed pitchers he faces. He has Thurday off and if you are a batty caller I suggest Logan Morrison who is 16th on the Hitter Tron for June 11th and just missed being this weeks Creeper. He gets lefty flyballer Shaun Marcum in lefty friendly Cleveland. Are we good with this? Cool, moving back to Turner, he finishes the week at San Diego who he has gone 25 for 54 against over the last three years. With all right handers on the hill he faces Ian Kennedy (7 for 14 against), James Shields (small sample size against…thats what she said) and Odrisamer Despaigne (no sample size). Interesting note on Shields, he has great numbers this year except in the dong department. His 20.3% HR/FB rate is ridiculous like a gluten free diet. Couple this with Petco being 16th in home runs this year and I likey like Mikey.

If you have been following the Frankencatcher I got another this week who should have been owned for his Colorado series last week. J.T. Realmuto (2.6% owned) goes to Toronto this week and that’s all that is needed to say. What you want more? He kills it on the road this year (.286 away vs. .169 at home). After the Toronto series he goes back home and then you’re on your own. I’m kidding, I’d take a stab at Mike Zunino to close out the week who travels to dong friendly Houston where he has hit 5 homers over his short career.

Welcome back to the top 100 hitters for now and going forward. To be clear, this is not the ranks for the week ahead. There has been some confusion about that again, and I want to clear things up. We good? Alright let’s dive in.

  • We get the return of Rendon and Puig this week after spending what felt like an eternity on the DL for Rendon and not long enough for Puig. What do you mean? Maybe it’s me but it felt like he got fast tracked pretty quick after having a setback…cust kayin’
  • Regardless of Grey telling you to sell Prince I’m here to hold him…if I could get my arms around him. Wait a minute, maybe I can. C’mon over here Prince *wraps arms around him* Damn, I actually got my arms around him. Wingspan! Oh yeah, and yes hold him and ride this great draft day value.
  • When the weather clears up in Colorado, Arenado should give you that 2nd round value you drafted. He is killing the road so far (16/10/26/.301) and with nothing but bad weather in Colorado it’s only a matter of time before he puts the hot corner on its head.
  • I’ve held out long enough on Kipnis. His line the last 30 days has been redonkey kong. Going 26/2/15/5/.374 is the start of something beautiful. Looks like he relly was hurt last year and by writing about this I just rang the alley cat’s bell.
  • I love the Trumbo trade for I own A.J. Pollock in a few places and love that the Trumblock is out of the way. Tomas and Inciarte, who both have been solid so far get a boost as I ask myself every day why I never grabbed Tomas when he was dropped. For Trumbo owners, I don’t think the park hurts him but if I had a girl like this then would anything ever hurt me?
  • I’ve had a real knack this year for dumping on players and then they turn it around. Not saying it will happen here but Kemp, Cano, Cargo and Ozuna are just barely holding on to top 100 status. This group of hot garbage has been more disappointing than even their potential schmohawk status in the preseason. Bums, completely worthlesss good for nothing roster fillers.
  • Looking at the Player Rater Season-to-Date and some notable names so far that even surprised me a little: A.J. Pollock (9th), Stephen Vogt (13th), Mark Teixeria (17th), and Jason Kipnis (20th). Pollock surprises me the most and I own him all over. Perception is a crazy hallucinogen.
  • Sauvecito Souza is back to his playa’ ways. I still love the upside and I want him on all my teams. Even the wrist issue can’t keep this kid down and I would try to own him if you can.
  • Last weeks Creeper is this weeks new add to the top 100. Billy Burns is just crazy hot and how he was only 13% last week is a travesty.I see the correction has occurred and now he is 59.3%. I hung on the rim for a technical after that dunk! JB Basketball reference!

    Gallo and he of the 50%K percentage and .571 BABIP sneaks in at 100. Betting on you Aint seen nothing yet?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @The Great Knoche: his value is there and that’s why I put him up. The 100th player can be lots of players and I chose him because if you got offered him for a an OF4 then you would take it for upside. Maybe even an OF3

      • Kevin Khederian says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH @J-FOH: J-FOH enjoyed reading on your opinions on some of those trades. Have a solid question, with the rumor of Mesoraco coming back and going to OF, Should I drop Alex Guerrero to add him? I have norris in the C slot, but also have 2 UTIL positions incase he heats up during the process of getting back into things.

  2. Jack says:
    (link)

    I can’t believe I’m asking this but…from the time VMart gets back in an OBP league do you like VMart or LaRoche ROS? If I make their PA’s the same Steamer/Razzball projections favor LaRoche in HR’s but VMart in OBP. I think LaRoche’s 2nd half’s have been much better than 1st half’s in the past. Either way, it’s close, right?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Jack: it’s all needs based and yes its close. I would want LaRoche because even when VMART comes back he’ll still be suspect to go down hurt again.

  3. Jiggy Nits says:

    Nl only roto keeper league
    pick one:

    granderson or cameron maybin

      • Jiggy Nits says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: thanks. the league actually counts walks instead of runs in the 5×5. granderson has 30 walks. does this change your decision?

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Jiggy Nits: Grandy’s walk rate is 3% higher so its still close for me. Being that its a keeper I want the younger player

    Long story short I have dominant pitcng stats by fluke which carried my GARBAGE offense

    I know both are not that great of options at the 2B/SS position, but would you hold Zobrist, or let him go for Forsythe (similar eligibility), Prado or Lawrie who are all on the waiver wire? I know Prado is a hot option on the Hitter-Tron, but looking for a potentially longer-term solution. Appreciate you insight J-FOH.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Peter Nincompoop: Zobrist and Forsythe are a coin flip. Seeing that the A’s have been rumored to move Zobrist, I would take a stab at him if he ends up in a good situation.

    I want to stream Wilin and able Rosario tomorrow (Lackey) but I’m not sure he’ll start against the righty. Every time I try to stream this dude he doesnt play

    12 team h2h points keeper

    Just moved Teixeira, cashner and Neil
    Walker for Tanaka, Dee Gordon and Corey Seager.
    Gordon and Seager can be rd 11 and 12 keepers.
    Staff is Now Scherzer, tanaka, Arrieta, Richards, wood, Hutchison.
    Winner, winner, points league dinner, right?

      @Sange76: I don’t trust Tanaka. But your two is better than three you gave away

        (link)

        @J-FOH:

        I don’t trust him fully either but for what the price was, and the pieces he added with him, figure it’s worth a shot…

    Motte got the save for the Cubs tonight. Anyone think he’ll end up being their closer? Or is it Strop or Rondon? Thanks

    • J-FOH says:

      @Brad: Rondon. I didnt see any injury

      • SteveNZ says:
        (link)

        @Brad: @J-FOH: No injury. Rodon had been used in a high-leverage situation earlier in the game, is all.

          @SteveNZ: thanks for the assist there, Ive been crazy busy today

  17. Sange76 says:
    (link)

    I just dropped Rondon for Carson smith. Way I figure it, smiths on the rise and not named Rodney, and Maddon always mixed and matched when he doesn’t have an A #1 closer type with the Rays….
    Cubs case though, I think it’s spread out between them all… Not good.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Sange76: I dont like that move, I think you’ll regret it

      • Sange76 says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH:

        Maybe. Hopefully a sneakily smart move. Points league…..
        7 pts a save and 5 a hold 1 pt appearance and 1 pt a k, -1 hits and walks…
        Smith was actually outscoring Rondon in our system, so at worst, I have an elite holds guy instead of a third closer, behind Allen and tolleson…

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Sange76: in that league it makes sense. I could also see seattle trading for a closer as well.

    (link)

    I know he’s still almost (cept me) everyone’s darling , but the 0 fers are really adding up. Without being greedy, what can I expect for Giancarlo on the open market? If you watch the games like I do, I know you can’t help but watch the big guy flinching up and in. Trivia question…what do Heyward and Stanton have in common? Yeah…you can see where Im going here.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @chucky: humor me, what do they have in common?

      That flinch has him second in home runs and first in RBI’s in all of baseball so I dont see the problem. On our player rater he’s 8th on the season and is 3rd on the rest of the season rater. I would expect a top 10 player in return or an Ace plus an OF 3

  22. Dommattingly says:
    (link)

    Have Desmond @ SS and Kinsler @ 2B.
    My SS/2B is Alex Guererro who hasn’t been getting much PT. I also have Travis on the DL. Would it be worth dropping Ozuna or Heyward for Adeiny Hechavarria? Or should I just hold?

    My other SPs are Kershaw, Hamels, Bauer, C-Mart. Quintana, Kyle Hendricks, Eduardo Rodriquez, McCullers and Gausman on the DL. We have a max of 9 starts per week.

    Keep the Correa questions rolling in…I got Desmond and Correa. I want to move one for a solid pitcher. Who holds more trade value? Right now I’d say Correa what do u think?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Mitchell Freedman: if you can find an owner to over pay for Correa then I would jump on it

  28. Sam says:
    (link)

    Have Rendon on the DL and Correa in an N/A spot. Have to drop some guys, who would you drop out of this group? Betts, Blackmon, Ventura, Chavez, Rodon or Gio? (I could always just leave them in those spots until I make a trade as well)

    • Sam says:
      (link)

      Was also offered Braun for Rendon, Rodon and Blackmon. Yes or no?

      • Sam says:
        (link)

        Or even just Rendon and Blackmon for Braun. Sorry for the question overload lol

        • J-FOH says:

          @Sam: Id drop Ventura and I’m not loving the trades

          • Sam says:

            thanks, dude. Also dropped Betts for Correa.

                (link)

                you think it was a bad one? We’re a small league, 8 teams, and the other owners in my league are dumb. But Betts is pretty much always on the bench.

    Would you drop Cecil to pick up Carson Smith or do you think Rodney gets it back?

  30. SteveNZ says:
    (link)

    I also keep an eye on my sister’s team in my h2H league. She’s been offered Desmond for Melancon, who is her only closer.

    There’s no obvious place to put Desmond, as she has Hanley at SS and Trumbo and Bruce in the only other places Desmond could be made to fit in (Util or shifting Hanley to LF etc).

    Normally you’d jump at a deal like this, but do you do it in this situation?

      @SteveNZ: Meh on that, if she wants to get rid of last closer she should be trying to get a piece she actually needs

    Trade advice please!

    Should I trade Jordan Zimmerman, Syndergaard, and Souza for Nelson Cruz and Eduardo Rodriguez?

    What’s going on with yelich?

    Is he droppable in a 8 team keeper league?

    Thx man

      @slimbo: how many do you keep?

      • slimbo says:

        @J-FOH:

          @slimbo: he’s a hold

    I know this is a hitter’s blog but should I trade Samardzija for McHugh?

    • J-FOH says:

      @Lofter: doesnt seem to make sense. Very lateral

    What do you think of wieters value ROS. I picked him up to stash but don’t really need him with Carlos Santana on my team. He looks good so far.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Jj: he can have some value b u5 I would want to see how he and Joseph split for a while before making an AB prediction

    I see you love the power/speed combo of Souza as much as I do… but I think his average is down to .210… is he ranked that high for you because the HR/SB are too juicy to part with or do you see him being a more stomachable commodity? (I’m not asking for much, but .240 would hurt a whole lot less)

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Nate: I love the power speed and I think a bump in batting average will happen

    Quick trade question…

    5 player keeper league, even scoring from batters and pitchers…

    I get Moustakas and Harvey. He gets McHugh and Arenado.

    NOTE 1: I also have Maikel Franco.
    NOTE 2: My best SPs other than if I got Harvey is Cole Hamels and Sonny Gray

    Thoughts?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @PeterBal: I want arenado

    u have hosmer ranked pretty high – He has been scuttling a bit.

    I have the following – do I replace any of them for hosmer this week?

    S Souza
    B Butler

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Blake: if by replace do you man drop then no I wouldn’t drop him. But if you mean to sit I would play souza. I’d also check on hitter tron for the week

      • Blake says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH:

        I meant which one to start and which one to sit. U ranked hosmer ahead of Souza but you are saying I should bench hosmer and start Souza?

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Blake: these are not weekly ranks, I know its confusing because Jay likes to have the week listed there. Souza has been hot and always go with the hot hand who can hit dongs

    Owner was interested in my Trevor Bauer. I could use an upgrade in OF, and he’s got Puig, Betts, Polanco, Pollock, Blackmon, and J.D. If I can’t get Puig, who would be the next to target?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @fork: JD for power, Pollock for speed and a little pop

    Sandoval is surprisingly high. He’s been sucking ass. Why is Cargo low for sucking and not Sandoval?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @sniff test: Cargo looks like he is not 100%, Dave our resident swingologist mentioned Cargo and how he isnt getting away with his swing anymore and needs to make adjustments. He is also a massive injury risk. Pablo has not been the best, but I still like him going forward. He is adjusting to a new league and has been dinged up so i give him a pass for now. On his career he does a lot of damage in the second half (Aug/Sep).

    Burns is available, would you drop either for him

    Drop either: Colabello, Fowler

    Current OF- springer, heyward, ellsbury(dl)

    • J-FOH says:

      @Mike: fowler

    Where would Corey Dickerson rank when he comes off the DL? He was just dropped in my league

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Brian: probably around 40-50. The foot issue bothers me and if he can’t steal bases then we got a problem
