I remember my final week of Summer Camp. I was in the Weeniechoke Mountains when I had my first experience with a girl. Her name was Michelle Branch. Not the singer, but a branch I named Michelle. This final week of Summer Camp is equally less-than-ideal for some bullpens. “Certain teams with uncertain ninths.” That’s me being poetic. Michelle Branch would’ve appreciated it. So, Keone Kela hit the IL. As I said in Friday’s Buy, “Kyle Crick stands to act as the Pirates’ closer for at least the re-opening. Crick is also one of the few players who will have a cheering section in the fan-less stadiums.” And that’s me quoting me! Since then, Crick gave up four earned in a third of an inning vs. the Indians and I’m checking my watch for Kela’s return. Nick Burdi is lurking there too, but you’re speculating two deep on a pen that might get ten total saves? Next up, Roberto Osuna hasn’t thrown off the mound yet and, when asked when Osuna would, Dusty said, “We don’t have any answers.” Dusty is reassuring as always! I think Osuna will be fine, since he’s with the team, but Ryan Pressly is there, and ain’t no hound dog. (Sorry. Moving on…) Giovanny Gallegos‘s undisclosed reasons for being away have turned into he’s ‘dis close’ to rejoining the Cards’ bullpen. Likely can tear up your Ryan Helsley shares, they’re doing a backwards STONKS. Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:

Gregory Polanco – Tested positive for Covid. The Pirates’ lineup depth is kiddie pool shallow, and I saw Adam Frazier now as their three-hole hitter, and I cackled for a good five minutes. Yeah, the Pirates are buying free agents and trying to get better. Riiiiiiiiiiight. Yes, eleven I’s.

Ke’Bryan Hayes – Tested positive for Covid. *opens window, casually sticks head out* NOOOOOOOOOO! *casually pulls head back in, shuts window* So, that sucks.

Matt Kemp – Made Rockies’ Re-Opening Day roster. Bud Black said, “I like the youth Kemp brings.”

Chris Owings – Made Rockies’ team. Chris Owings it all to being a vet and Bud Black has a Cougar love only rivaled by me.

Jordan Zimmermann – Out for likely the season with a forearm strain. Zimmermannia is not running rampant this year. Too bad the Tigers don’t have any prospect pitchers they could use in his place, which is what I say to throw people off the scent of Matt Manning and Casey Mize.

Kyle Tucker – Dusty said Tucker will get quite a bit of action this year. Like running to get his toothpicks. I kid, this is actually good news with some opening in the Astros’ lineup for Tucker to see at-bats. I’m intrigued, y’all!

Lourdes Gurriel – Dealing with something oblique, but not oblique like “undisclosed” but oblique like oblique. Hopefully he’s fine, because he’s one of my major breakouts I’m relying on (for like three days until I start picking up and dropping everyone off waivers). Also, not sure if you heard but the Blue Jays maybe playing in Buffalo this year. Rudy dug into park factors, and it’s all in his fantasy baseball projections. I did some scientific research of my own:

Carter Kieboom – Will share time at 3rd base this year with Asdrubal Cabrera, and Kieboom’s fantasy value went kie-blowie. This is not good news, hoping for a “psych” from Dave Martinez. Or a psych eval.

Jon Jay – Won a spot on the Diamondbacks’ roster. Maybe this will help soothe the pain of his Hamilton snub. Jon Jay was in the room where it happened!

Aristides Aquino – Optioned to the alternate Summer Camp. Or, as I like to call it, the That’s A Bummer Camp. It’s got a catchy ring, right? Hopefully we see The GGOATOAT with the Reds soon.

Yasiel Puig – Tested positive for Covid, and we can’t have anything nice, and now Puig is no longer signed by the Braves because this fiery hellball we call earth is overrun with microscopic germs that don’t like us to have wonderful. Damn, you microbes! Seriously, anything that small ever that good? And don’t answer Jose Altuve, he was cheating. So, Rudy and I have removed Puig from our rankings, because if he’s not healthy for two weeks, and then needs to sign again, teams may wait until end of July to sign him, and bleh. It’s not good.

Freddie Freeman – Could be ready to start the year. Welp, I’m not moving him up in my rankings, but that’s the problem with discounting guys based on Covid. Their timetable is more oblique than obliques. If I had a draft in the final few days before the season, I’d prolly risk a Freeman pick again in the top 20 overall.

Josh Tomlin – Signed by the Braves. Nothing for fantasy, but in real life teams are crazy to not be signing guys like this. Their rotations are going to be in such disarray by mid-July, if not sooner.

Yonder Alonso – Made the Braves team. Had little doubt he would. As a backup 1B/DH, who’s over Yonder? *distant yodeling can be heard*

Matt Adams – Released by the Mets. Gotta be a blow to a guy’s confidence when you’re released by a team that has Jed Lowrie taking grounders while sitting in a folding chair with his leg in a brace.

Domingo German – Wrote an Instagram post that said he’s leaving baseball, then deleted it. He blamed the Instagram filter, Dramatic Exits.

Eduardo Rodriguez – Arrived in Boston and said, “Can’t I get some red clam chowder?” What a sellout! Actually, he said he hopes to be in the rotation soon.

Collin McHugh – Opted out. Red Sox pitching looks as bad as Orioles’ pitching; that’s not a joke. I mean, they’re a joke, but I’m not joking about it. So pathetic. When did the Red Sox become Small Market Bozos? Absolutely ridiculous. Any hoo! McHugh wasn’t even in my top 500, so I opted in…on smarts!

Yonny Chirinos – Was away from the team for undisclosed reasons, which are disclosed by saying “undisclosed reasons.” Rays expect Chirinos to be ready by opener. It’s always about openers with the Rays.

Willie Calhoun – Could be ready for Re-Opening Day. Willie be healthy — it’s a statement and a question.

John Means – Day-to-day with a dead arm. Great for reenacting Weekend at Bernie’s, not great for pitching.

Logan Morrison – Made the Brewers. Not sure if that’s in place of or in addition to Ryon Healy, Brock Holt, Jedd Gyorko or Ben Gamel. So many great names, will be hard for them to pick who has to spray each batter with hand sanitizer after a home run.

Jesus Luzardo – Returned to the A’s Summer Camp. He was in Friday’s Sell. That’s all I can stan, but I can’t stan in 60 games, said a’la Popeye.

Carlos Martinez – Sounds like he’s going to be in the rotation, which is what I’ve been saying since January, when I ranked him in my top 60 starters. Mah gawd, this preseason has been longer than The Irishman.

civale will have value (for leagues where pitchers that deep do anyway) shortly. however aquino is better for stash purposes in case he ever plays. you ain’t losing much by throwing civale out (i.e. replacements for him would be far easier to find)

also civale very shortly won’t even have an NA tag so you’d have to:
1. make no moves at all (yahoo doesn’t allow moves if not elig guys are in slots)
2. drop somebody else to use him anyway (and if that was the question you’d have mentioned that, so unless you didn’t AND have a worse SP to drop it’s not an issue)

Grey, I’m excited for baseball but mainly excited for Razzball. Thanks for keeping me sane.

Got a question. Here’s my team in a 12-team 5×5:

C Kiner-Falefa
1B Olson
2B Moustakas
SS Marte
3B Rendon
OF Bellinger
OF Soler
OF Castellanos
ÚT Biggio
UT Kingery
BN Walker, Calhoun

SP Bieber, Gray, Kluber, Gallen, Hill, Stripling, James, Houser
RP Giles, Workman, Gallegos

What do you think? Anyway, I feel the need for speed. Would it be crazy to offer Soler for Luis Robert straight up? I know you have Soler ranked well ahead, but given my team needs, maybe? Or am I a dummy?

sounds good to me, and while grey does have soler 36 spots higher (50 vs 86) rudy has robert in the OPS rater (and robert i’d NOT have thought would be higher in the OPS rater as usually steals guys and rookie guys are NOT loved by that, meaning grey is just higher in general on soler than consensus likely by a lot).

Mantis Tobaggan MD

OPS rater on soler vs lou bob
soler: 12.3
robert: 22.2

so the OPS rater likes robert TWICE as much more than grey likes soler (15 vs 10 on grey), this is even with the lineup, being a rookie, and having no small part of his value coming from steals and OPS related stuff (robert’s biggest weakness is his OBP). this is likely since soler spent years before doing well and it’s cooking in the 3 or so years before. but OPS rater also USUALLY docks rookies due to not having an MLB past at all and projection systems usually don’t assume upside is all that likely in somebody with no history of MLB success.

projections systems in general also tend to undervalue (i.e. not believe) in breakouts after a guy hadn’t for a while (so soler). lou bob must’ve really kicked the minors’ ass for his age level to get projections machines to like him THIS much.

Hey Grey – thanks for the write-up!

If you were drafting today for a H2H 5×5 OBP 10 tm league, are there any players that you are going out of your way to reach for?

The way the league is set up is so that we are going H2H with the other 9 league members each week in each category.

I’ve been thinking that I may do whatever it takes to get Mondesi on my team for Steals, although he may not be as valuable for OBP. Any players that you’d reach for just to make sure you got them?

Thanks!

olson and stanton and paxton are going far lower lately than they should be (olson probably all preseason, the other 2 from injury risks but they currently aren’t injured, the majority of the ADP price on them is from march when they both were). judge has this similar thing going on too, but not to the level of stanton/paxton’s.

Hey Grey – in an OBP OPS league, would you trade:

for

Muncy + a keepable Glasnow Bauer or Maeda?

I have 5 RP as is, so definitely can spare + Muncy and Freeman are morE similar in this format..,also a little worried how Freeman’s strength is

Hey Grey!

Psyched to start this bizarro season. Just drafted. League added some BE/P/IL spots this year to account for the Covid madness.

Aside from the obvious peculiarities (yes taking Hader as a first pitcher was a crazy nod to the times pick which I will regret), Carrasco (Co-owner’s request which I will also probably regret as he has screwed me over every time I have drafted him) and our 50 third basemen … thoughts?

I should add I was pretty underprepared this year given the malaise of the longest preseason in history.

10 team H2H mixed H2H R/HR/RBI/SB/AVG/OPS K/QS/ERA/WHIP/K-9/SVHD

In, but I think Counsell is gonna fuck with 3ish inning combos with the guys he has and mix up some left/right combos

Something like this and then constantly mix it up.

Woodruff – Traditional Starter
Brett Anderson -3/ Freddy Peralta -3
Lindblom -3/ Suter -3
Lauer 3 -/ Burnes -3
Houser -3 / Phelps – 2

This is why I think Suter and Peralta could lead majors in wins.

So Grey, one question for you.

Why would the Rockies with young players to give at-bats to in a shortened 60-game season that they don’t even plan on contending in sign an old fart and then give him valuable playing time? I imagine it all went down something like this:

Marlins’ Don Mattingly:

“It’ s a 60-game season, let’s not waste any time on an aging old fart like Matt Kemp. We need to figure out what we’re working with here.”

Followed up by Derek Jeter:

“Now that’s why I hired you D-Matt!”

Followed up by the Rockies’ Bud Black:

“It’s a 60-game season, let’s not waste any at-bats figuring out what we’ve got in Hampson, Hilliard or Rodgers. Let’s give them to this old guy so we can stymie our development for another year or two.”

Followed up by Rockies GM Jeff Bridich:

“Now you’re learning. I’d better be careful or you might have my job pretty soon!”

hampson appears to be str up starting right now, not even platooning anymore after the opt outs and injuries to others plus NL DH. hilliard till about 2 days ago was righty side starter, and still shows up in depth charts as that, COL local writers think tapia has the job for now (but we’ve seen for years now how many at bats bud black gives him, whereas hilliard was up at SAME time last year as tapia and hilliard got those at bats late in year). rodgers in lefty only side at least at first.

Grey,

Appreciate all you and Razzball has done over the baseball hiatus and we are almost there!

I’m in a 10 H2H 7×5 (more like obp) 10 player keeper. Wanted your thoughts on my team:

C – Will Smith
1B – Olson (K)
2B – Albies (K)
3B – Rendon (K)
SS – Mondesi (K)
OF – Acuna (K)
OF – Bellinger (K)
OF – Meadows (K)
Util – Ketel (K)
Bn: V. Robles, Wander (K),
IL: Yordan (K)

SP: Giolito, Corbin, E-Rod, Fried, McCullers
RP: Hendricks, N. Anderson

Waiver wire arms: K. Hendricks, Mitch Keller, Josh James, Rich Hill, Odorizzi, Weaver, Robbie Ray

1) I’ve sold off some arms for bats and plan to stream pitching like a madman all-season. Any hitter or pitching areas to address?

2) The Tatis owner wants one of Ketel or Albies (maybe straight up but I may have to add a pitcher or draft pick as well) as he has no one at 2B. With Mondesi and Wander at SS is this worth pursuing?

Thanks!

This draft I took your advice and did the opposite of how I usually draft – tried to hit speed heavy early on while getting some cheap power on the back end. Only things I dont like… 1) I got in a bidding war for Sano and wouldve otherwise got him for about $5 2) the amount of SS I have. Maybe should’ve spread the wealth on some OFers or RP instead of taking the SS I really like. Looking forward to reading your thoughts! GL this year and thx for the content.

I feel you on those three guys. Boyd is a homer pick being a Tiger. I was sad Gallen went for $10 so I panicked a bit. With the COVID situation in Houston and the launch angle issue you have with him im more worried on Bregs, but Rendon, Arenado, Devers, J Ram all were more expensive so I decided to take a chance with the value. The Bringer of Rain might’ve been a cheaper, safer option. And Manaea gives me heart eyes idk why! Starting Franmilly-milly-milly, then. Thanks again Grey!

Morning Grey and others,
Drafted in my home league last night, hoping I could get a little feedback. Due to shortened season we switched from head to head to traditional roto. I have never played roto so it’s all new to me and totally appreciate any help I can get.

RP1 – Bradley
RP2 – Urias (SP)
RP3 – Melancon
RP4 – Britton
Bench Arms – Rich Hill, Alex Wood, Corey Kneubel, Ryan Pressly
With changing to roto, wondering if i have ant obvious holes. My closers are a work in progress … hoping Britton/Press can provide some early save production while i hunt waivers. Maybe kneubel works into something …

BENCH BAT CONUNDRUM!

I feel I have a short of bench bats to plug into my lineup. Normally, I would be comfortable going into the season with a lineup of every day guys and only one bench bat, but with the probability of players getting sick or (more likely) being scratched due to delayed test results, I may be looking at leaving a spot/spots empty!

Head-to-head league, so this is a bit magnified.

My lineup:

C – Ramos
1B – Olson
2B – Villar
3B – Muncy
SS – Story
OF – Springer, Laureano, Schwarber, H Dozier
Util – Trea Turner, Mondesi
BN – Arraez

SP – Giolito, Glasnow, Sonny Gray, Ryu, Lynn, Odorizzi, Maeda, Weaver, Yarbrough
RP – Kimbrel, Anderson, Britton, Lugo

What it comes down to – are any of my pitchers droppable for the FA bats listed below? Are any of these guys preferable to Arraez?

FA: Urshela, Kendrick, Fletcher, Hilliard, Kyle Lewis, Sunday Santana, Gardner, Tapia

Who gets more ABs this season: Berti or Hampson.

ESPN (vial rotowire) is throwing cold water on the Hampson hype:

Hampson likely will begin the season in a reserve role and could operate as a utility player, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Spin: The addition of the designated hitter to the National League this season should bring additional opportunities, but it appears to be a more indirect benefit for the 25-year-old. Beyond the utility usage, Hampson should see somewhat regular time at the keystone as starter Ryan McMahon should cover first base when Daniel Murphy serves as the DH. However, top prospect Brendan Rodgers and veteran Chris Owings are also in the mix as options at second base.

——————–

For fantasy purposes, especially in weekly formats, it seems like there are always one too many infielders and outfielders in Colorado to ever get too excited about their young players.

I can’t believe we are four days away from MLB opening day and one team has no idea where it is going to be playing their home games. Talk about a clusterf*ck. Oh and not dropping Puig yet I think someone may sign him again soon. Maybe even the Braves come back.

Spot starts. Yeah, I had to have some weaknesses in a 15 team. SP has risks. Jarrod Dyson apparently is starting in PIT. He can hold me over until Carlson is ready I hope. The guy could bag 20 if full time. I just have to pray he makes contact with his bat or body and the ball.

Morning Grey! Time for some “please rank these guys in my shallow 10-teamer” lowercase yay! If your thoughts haven’t changed, please yell at me to just look at your rankings! With that being said, we drafted back in early March, kept out squads and now have our first waiver period tonight. So, hoping you can help rank these guys for me. Shallow 10 teamer, weekly transactions with only 2 bench spots so a bit of stability is helpful. Thanks in advance, sorry for these lame questions! Anywho, please rank:
1) Stripling, D May, Odorizzi, Yarbrough
2) Yarbrough, Al Wood, Matz
3) I Happ, Grisham, Cespedes, Riley

Keeper question for ya. H2H categories, no playoffs for this year, so in a way its a H2H cat/roto. Keep 3, but have to have drafted or kept them the year prior. They move up 1 round each season.

Trea Turner – 20th rd
Ramon Laureano – 22nd rd
Shane Bieber – 9th rd
Tyler Glasnow – 11th rd
Aaron Nola – 12th rd
Brandon Woodruff – 23rd rd

Ohh master… I failed you… I had my draft yesterday and drafted a SP with my first pick (I didn’t have a first round pick, instead I began with the 3rd pick of the 2nd round).

It’s a 14-team Weekly H2H. Batting stats include the typical 5 plus OPS, BB, K against and instead of SB, we use Net Stolen Bases. Pitching stats included the typical 5 plus QS, Holds, BB, and K/BB.

Here’s my team:

C: Narvaez
1b: Carlos Santana
2B: Albies
SS: Ketel Marte
3B: Bregman
OFs: Starling Marte, Eddie Rosario, Laureano
Util: Shogo Akiyama, Nelson Cruz
BN Bats: Howie Kendrick, Kyle Tucker

SPs: Bieber, Hendricks, Heaney, Boyd, Yarbrough, Maeda, Civale
Rps: Hendriks, Rogers, Robles, Buttrey, Helsley

Want your opinion on my team? I feel I have a good team compare to the others but I feel I’m low on HR, K’s and Holds. I have many SPs to play the matchup game with them.

Also, was thinking of trading Hendricks and Laureano for Springer. And a second trade with Rosario for Woodruff and a RP (probably Pressly). Should I pursue any of the trades?

And finally, should I drop any of my players for Madrigal that is available?

Hey Grey,

Excellent write-up as always. I have my draft tomorrow in a pretty serious league. I have first overall pick, and I wanted your opinion on something. This is a 10 team (26 roster spots so 260 positions), 5×5 roto league.

1st) Acuna

2nd/3rd) I was thinking of grabbing Mondesi and one of Rendon/Harper/Alonso… I realize that grabbing Mondesi early makes my team pretty steals heavy. Especially because I’m looking at Villar later on in the draft. Do I punt Mondesi this pick, and go for 2 of Rendon/Harper/Alonso, and hope to grab Mondesi rounds 4/5? (pick ~40ish).

4/5) I’m looking at Lucas Giolito as a first starter to grab.

When should I target a closer?

Thank you!

Hey all – anyone know if Julio Rodriguez will be IL’d for his wrist injury vs. not officially “IL’d” and just out for the season? Trying to figure out if I should wait until Thursday before lineups lock before dropping him in my keeper league . . . if he could be IL’d, I would just stash him there instead of dropping…

Will fling a few thoughts against the wall.

Wilmer Flores: Does he get the 1B start against on Thursday night? I though I saw Belt may not be ready. And I just checked BvP, he is 5 for 16 (.312) against Kershaw for whatever that’s worth.

Kike Hernandez / Chris Taylor: Maybe they don’t start on Thursday, but I found them in the player pool in my deeper leagues and we’ve got an extended IL, so I’ve got room for a few batty calls. Will then drop them both for something different come Friday’s games.

Chad Green: I see he has a new pitch, that’s cool. But he is just a filler for the short day, dropped once the games start. Maybe they push Cole 7 innings. But why not grab a guy that could snake a W on Day 1 of this sprint.

If you can’t tell, I’m running my own Taxi Squad over here on Team NUX. I don’t play in leagues that limit adds/drops. So I’m running all my roto leagues like they are RCLs.

I was debating between Chad Green and Cam Bedrosian for that SV+HLDs category and gave the edge to Green since he plays for a better team and should hopefully get more oppos for a HLD, but now i’m thinking i should’ve gone Cam… This is for my SP spot so I can add a extra guy for HLDs when none of my guys are starting.

All of Ketel Marte’s Statcast numbers backed up his breakout. There was concern the power will regress. I don’t think so. He’s been raking and hitting bombs during summer camp. Sometimes it takes some time for young players to figure it out and he’s one of those players.

Had my draft last night – 12 teams, 5 standard roto categories for hitters with the following added: Ks, Errors, and OPS

Pitchers have the following cats: W, L, SVs+HLDs, Ks, ERA, WHIP, K/9, and QS

C- Will Smith
1B- Matt Olson
2B- Jon Villar
3B- Eugenio Suarez
SS- Trevor Story
OF- Mookie Betts, Cody Bellinger, Ramon Laureano
UTIL- Adalberto Mondesi
SP- Sonny Gray, Carlos Carrasco, Ryan Yarbrough, Max Fried, Zac Gallen, Dinelson Lamet
RP- Chad Green, Diego Castillo, Matt Barnes, Aaron Bummer, Yus Petit, Craig Stammen

I tried to focus on HLDs guys as much as possible since they are as valuable as closers, and I could get them for cheap. I feel like my K/9 might need a boost with guys like Yarbrough, Petit, Stammen, and Bummer expected to be below 9. I might be OK overall if Rudy’s HLD$ value ends up being somewhat accurate. The advantage of Chad Green and Diego Castillo is their SP eligibility.

One thing I didn’t realize was that Ryan Yarbrough won’t have an opener this year, and will be acting as a traditional SP – does this kill his value a little bit?

Oh one other thing I forgot to mention – we have a 35 inning requirement – which i’ve been vocal is a mistake for a season like this… but it’s what I gotta deal with. Also, I drafted Joey Bart for funzies, so I did the biggest no-no in Fantasy – draft 2 catchers

William Hung
William Hung
Reply to  Grey
2 years ago

Bart was for kicks – it’s 2020 and it’s a 60 game season sooooo YOLO!!!! Plus, Bart’s roster spot is prob gonna be my streaming spot unless Chad Green is an opener or doesn’t get me any holds. Also, my hitting better be stacked – I invested my first 8 picks on it. I only got Sonny Gray in the 9th cause someone took Willson Contreras ahead of me.

Other stray observations – Villar went in the 7th round – I know you aren’t a fan, but at that price, I had to go for it. Looking back, I probably should’ve skipped Suarez and drafted Matt Chapman, as people kept skipping Chapman until I believe the 10th round. So I could’ve gotten a SP in that spot

With pitching, I’m especially excited for Petit – word out of OAK is in a short season, they are gonna give him an Eddie “Everyday Eddie” Guardado (remember him?) type of workload. In terms of SVs+HLDs, is my mindset that MRs are just as good as closers? Wade Davis went undrafted, so I could in theory have a “closer” for free.

So glad we potentially have 60 games of baseball – I’m back to checking this site 5-6 times an hour to see what kind of questions and answers there are.
