The Brewers, as you likely heard, sent down Keston Hiura, which means the return of Travis Shaw, The Mayor of Ding-Dong City returns to Milkwaukee.  *sees Travis Shaw carrying a box of Ding-Dong snack cakes*  Oh!  See, the whole time I thought that meant home runs.  The nickname makes more sense now, and would’ve been good to know in the preseason. Let me hear your jubilation for manipulation of service time.  This, more than anything else, MLB really dominates. Hear that’s why MLB is the most popular sport amongst knobsticks, blacklegs and union busters. I grabbed Shaw, because he hit .235 during his rehab in the PCL, which is like hitting with aluminum bats on the moon.  No, his .235 average isn’t the reason I picked him up, it’s because I called him my preseason MVP and must wear him like a Scarlett Letter.  No, not for that reason either.  Because I had room and it was a deep league and I was like dubya tee eff.  That really is the reason.  Muy excitamente Señor Ding Dong!  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Carlos Gonzalez – 1-for-3, 1 run as he was called up by the Cubs.  I DM’d Prospect Mike to find out his thoughts about this call-up, and PM said, “Please don’t contact me.”  CarGo is the ultimate prospblock, even when there’s no prosps to block.  Have you ever seen a player be Spanish Fly to all managers like CarGo?  It’s almost like because he’s older, they’re able to talk about stuff that Olds like to talk about so they always play him.  “Remember when we needed a TV Guide magazine to find out what was on?”  “Those blurbs were the best!  24-character synopses!  None of this thinkpiece crap!  Kids nowadays!”  “Hey, wanna start in right field?”  “Sounds great!”

Jon Lester – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.32.  Seems ludicous to even have to point this out in today’s pitching environment, but I’m still very much in on Lester, and own him.  Yeah, I know, owning a 3.32 ERA shouldn’t need to be pointed out, but everyone’s got Shiny New Toy Syndrome–How about that Smeltzer guy?!  “Vegas is giving Smeltzer an over/under of five Ks for his next start.”  “That’s a clown prop.”

Javier Baez – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and 14th homer, hitting .301.  Glad to see him pull himself out of his week-long slide, which lowered his average twenty points.  Didn’t need for Baez to then go on to sing, Diamonds & Rust.  Sorry if that’s folked up.

Willson Contreras – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 13th homer, hitting .291.  He’s the 3rd best catcher (as of yesterday) on our Player Rater.  Any guesses where that leaves him overall?  Did someone just say Michigan?  How is that even a guess?  He’s around the 100th best player.  As I always say, even the best catchers are not that great.

Trevor Cahill – 4 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 7.18.  Ausmus texting pitching coach:  Should we try an opener and have Trevor start the 2nd?  Pitching coach:  K, he’ll still suck.

Robbie Ray – 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.62.  Solid start, yadda3.  On a side note, if you haven’t watched Chernobyl, I give it my 4-star Grey approval.  That’s out of three stars.  I make up the damn rating system!  Even if you think you know the story, it’s worth checking out.  Though the one random Starbucks cup in the reactor was an odd choice.

Christian Walker – 1-for-3 and his 11th homer, and third homer in the last five games.  Turns out all Walker needed to do to get going was some hot air from the Diamondbacks saying, “We want to see what Cron can do.”  Cron’s Disease is similar to IBS, Intentionally Benching Sluggers.

Corey Seager – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 8th home run, hitting .246.  Ya know the Player A or B Test?  Don’t ever do that with Seager, he fails.  Watch:  who do you want Player A:  14 HRs, 3 SBs, hitting .276.  Or Player B:  8 HRs, 1 SB and .246.  Player B is obvious, Player A is Ketel Marte.

Walker Buehler – 8 IP, 1 ER, 2 hits, 0 walks, 11 Ks, ERA at 3.69.  Is it finally the end of Spring Training for Buehler?  Please tell me it is.

Corbin Martin – 3 IP, 2 ER, in 76 pitches, ERA at 5.59.  Corbin Martin is about as efficient as following a sherpa to the summit of Mt. Everest to get some pink Himalayan salt.

Robinson Chirinos – 1-for-4 and his 8th homer.  Uh-oh, Chirinos!

Wade LeBlanc – 3 2/3 IP, 0 ER, zero hits, 1 walk, ERA at 6.19.  The Relievonator, which rates Openers (and relievers, dur), loved LeBlanc yesterday. No word if it’s because it just wants some Friends.

Mallex Smith – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer, as he continues to hit leadoff.  Someone asked yesterday about where Dee Gordon bats when he returns, and I’m not sure, but my guess is Mallex is performing well, so Gordon gets Pipp’d back to the nine hole.

Edwin Encarnacion – 1-for-5 and his 16th homer.  As Edwin rounded the bases, he had his usual parrot on his shoulder, only this time, it was saying, “Polly, want off this team.”

Jon Jay – Beginning a minor league assignment and working on these papers he’s hoping becoming “federal.”

Hunter Dozier – Hit the IL with a pulled muscle in his chest.  Should’ve never changed his walk-up song to Squeeze’s Pulling Muscles (To The IL).

Manny Machado – 1-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .251.  “I know he’s not known for hustling, but I think…it’s worse. He hasn’t moved in almost two months. Maybe we should see if we can make him fertilizer. We can call it, Man-ure–Wait!  He just moved!  Oh my, Manny’s alive!”

Franmil Reyes – 1-for-4 and his 17th homer, hitting .247.  Hitting about the same as Machado with seven more homers.  *places tacks on desk, slams head into desk* I’m good.  Just a little frustrated.

Eric Lauer – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.18.  The Streamonator was positive on Lauer for this start, but I’m positively never starting him in any leagues.

Aaron Nola – 5 1/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.63.  Not sure how familiar you are with Nola’s game, but it’s usually solid 9-ish Ks and great command.  So far this year, he’s getting more Ks (fractionally), but his command just isn’t there.  Everything else looks relatively normal, now that small samples have normalized.  My guess is it’s mechanics thing and he’ll right the ship. So, while I didn’t love him coming into this year, I’m in the Buy Low camp.

Andrew McCutchen – Went down in a heap during a run down, and needed to be helped off the field McClutchin’ his knee.  He also could not go down stairs.  Are there stairs on a baseball field?  Not unless Matt Stairs is back, so we so good!  *intern whispers to me* Being told we not “so good.”  Damn.  Gotta appreciate the Phils’ foresight to trade for another OF the day before this ghastly injury.  More like Phils of the Future!

Adam Haseley – Phils’ 2017 1st round pick is being called up to replace McClutchin’. Wonder if the Phils remembered they just traded for Bruce.  Guess they figure Bruce can’t play center, but Kingery can.  Prospectonator doesn’t love Haseley, giving him 15/7 with little average over the course of a season (by the way, if you click on Haseley’s name, his projections are there for free — like every player). I will say this for Haseley, he looks ready to contribute in the landmark case of sooner vs. later since he played college ball.  In NL-Only leagues, I’m interested since McCutchen looks out for a while, but wait and see in mixed. Kingery also gets a boost again as a possible replacement for McCutchen.

Nelson Cruz – Activated from the IL.  Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “Someone cooked fish in the microwave with the sign ‘Don’t cook fish in the microwave, it smells’ and framed me!”

Chance Sisco – Called up from the minors.  That’s right everyone’s favorite roll-of-the-die Bum Wine!  If you can say his name without singing ABBA’s Take A Chance On Me than you’re a lot straighter than I am!  He had 10 HRs and a .289 AVG in Triple-A, and you have to wonder why he hasn’t been with the O’s the entire time.  Anyone else notice the Orioles’ catcher situation sounds like a Vegas two-day vacay?  “We’re going from Wynns to Chance.”  In most mixed leagues, I could see grabbing Sisco if you’re struggling at catcher, and, no, Alfaro is not struggling.

  1. Matty says:

    I’m tempted to take a chance on Chance since I owned him as a minor leaguer previously and if he does well I feel like less of a dolt for getting him in the minor league draft a few years back, but with Vazquez and James McCann I’m already spending all $2 (of 260) that I’ve allocated for catchers in my two catcher league.

    Like you said; good catchers are pretty bad. And my favorite takeaway is that middling catchers aren’t much worse than good ones- those two waiver wire pickups don’t contribute a ton in counting stats but they’re hitting .298 and .338 respectively.

      McCann over Sisco ? Looking at that myself.

    Fab write-up, and on a short night of only 4 games!!

    a. So, drop Phegley for Cisco? Just kidding, Phegley is in until the end of time.

    b. Dropped Niko to activate Shaw from the IL. In second in hitting with Shaw on the IL, so that human sacrifice I made for sure is going to pay off, right?

    c. Abbott and Costello quote of the day for June 4

    Who Done It? is a 1942 film about two aspiring mystery writers who become involved with a real murder case.

    Player A: 42 games, 21 runs, 3 hr, 12 rbi, 14 sb, .110 ISO

    Player B: 58 games, 20 runs, 4 hr, 17 rbi, 14 sb, .107 ISO.

    I think we all would take player A since he played in about 27% fewer games.

    Player A is Mallex Smith
    Player B is Jose Ramirez

    Jose Ramirez stats are soooooo freaking awful. I didnt expect 39 hr again but what he has complied so far is almost statistically impossible for a guy who has got better every year and is 26. He still has a great walk and k rate. He also has better hard hit rate than last year!

    1 NA spot. I own hiura & shaw (dl) and had tucker in my NA spot. Only got room for 2 of them now. I plan to put hiura in my NA spot to see how shaw does and hold shaw despite wanting to cut him. Would you rather use that NA spot for Kyle tucker and cut hiura or is it better to hedge shaw shatting up the place again and having hiura getting called up for good next time. This is a redraft btw.

    The Astros don’t seem to be in a rush to give tucker or Alvarez an opportunity even though they had some big injuries and both are deserving promotion.

        I’ll bench Smith, then he will have 10K game! If only MIA could support the pitching.

        Arrieta..agonizing to watch. His version of a good game is 6IP 3K, 2-3 BBs, HB, 8-11 hits.

        Bad version. Very bad!

        He’s a contract keeper i got stuck with team i took over, he’s so irritating.

    My two cents, its no coincidence that the O’s call up Sisco the day they draft their cornerstone at the same position to see if they have anything there at all, or to bump up his trade value.

    My team was looking so good I started stashing a lot of guys – have Gallen, Cease, and Tucker all rostered

    This past week I lost Hunter Dozier, Gallo, and Hiura (And Luke Weaver, who I already dropped) leaving Max Muncy as my only bat with 1B/2B/3B eligibility

    I also have Glasnow as essentially a stash in an IL slot.

    C-Alfaro
    1B-Hunter Dozier (IL eligible)
    2B- hiura
    3B- Max Muncy
    SS- Mondessi
    OF- Trout
    OF- Benintendi
    OF- Eloy
    U- Story
    U- Dahl
    Bench – Joc Jams
    Bench – Tucker

    SP- Ryu
    SP- German Marquez
    SP- Flaherty
    P- Fried
    P- Pivetta
    P- Canning
    RP- Neris
    RP- Luke Jackson
    RP- Taylor Rodgers
    B- Wade Davis (IL eligible)
    B- Gallen
    B- Cease
    IL- Glasnow
    IL-Gallo

    Trying to decide who to let go to replenish my infield. Muncy has 1b/2b/3b eligibility so can add any positions and make it work. Guys like Biggio, Sano, Shaw, Kendrick, Nicky Lopez, and Lourdes Gurriel are available

    Could let go of an injured player, a triple A player, or even let go of a closer like Rodgers and bank on my SAGNOF game coming through down the road. Anyone have any thoughts? Apologies for the lengthy question!!

          The best thing about moving away from Philly is that I don’t have to listen to WIP. I imagine at this point most callers are complaining about Harper’s batting average, while others are still clamoring to trade Wentz and keep Foles.

    While we all gotta follow our instincts, I don’t really understand the lovelessness toward Eric Lauer and Brandon Lowe in particular. Lauer might get to 12 wins, sub-4.00 ERA and 140ks . That does the job as a 7th starter or streamer in deep leagues. Hell, he even pitched well @NYY. B. Lowe is pretty much on pace for 85/30/100/.275/10. There’s a lot of season left but results are results to this former California boy now in the quaint Sawx country of southern New England.

    What’s up Grey

    Looking for a Hunter Dozier temporary replacement: you like Sano over Renato Nunez, Franco, or Beckham?

    Also highly recommend the new netflix show When They See Us about the central park 5. It’s only 6 episodes so relatively short but the actors that play the kids are unbelievably good.

      Over Franco

    Good Morning Senor Grey – I got pitching questions for a 12-team 5×5 league…

    1) Start or sit?
    2-start Martin Peez @CLE (-$1.9) and vSEA ($4.6)
    Kikuchi LAA ($0.9)
    Which one do you like more?

    2) Rank as RPs – Parker, Alvarado, C-Mart – Are any of them getting saves?

    3) Start one of the RPs over the SPs listed in question #1?

    holds envelope up to head and says, “Milwaukee Brewers”

    opens envelope and reads, “Who is CarGo’s role model?”

    Brewers don’t seem to like winning, gotta keep expectations low! Demoting Hiura is the reason why the Brewers will never get another World Series. As i predicted, it took Hiura about 60 ABs, just like in AAA, to adjust to the level before he started to take off… he was absoluting roping the ball and started to walk some too, with 3 HRs, 7 RBIs, and 3 BBs in his last 5 games. He was just starting to hit his stride! We’ll always have Paris.

    Losing Gallo and Hiura in 2 days sucks balls. At least I have Dahl to catch me as I faint.

        After a bit of math, looks like if Hiura stayed on roster rest of way he’d accrue 139 service days, putting him at high risk for Super-2 status. Which means they might keep him down for a couple weeks (at least long enough for Shaw to disgrace himself again) and then bring him back so he’s doesn’t Arenado them with Arb years.

    I’ve already got Suarez and Vlad at 3B and Utility, but was just offered JoRam for one of my SP.
    Here’s my team (H2H 10 team categories):

    3B- Suarez

    I don’t need JoRam, and idk where he would fit in my lineup once Judge and Gallo return. But the opportunity to acquire him for just one of Bieber, Paddack or Buehler seems too good to pass up. Thoughts?

    Hey Grey- on Machado, I’ve owned him for every single AB he’s had in the majors in my keeper league. In the off-season I read in so many places that he’s going to react to the mega-contract like Manny R. He won’t ever be a team player, but the money won’t make a difference. He’ll just keep on hitting. I never bought that. It’s the first week in June and he’s the worst everyday player on my entire roster. I don’t see Manny….I see Ellsbury. I think in dynasties and keepers he’s a sell. As you would say, I woundn’t trade him for a stack of TV Guides….but Mondesi? Absolutely.

    My bad.

    The good news is that Halle Berry is the next guest on Hot Ones. Yes, a Bond girl will eating my hot sauce. Wait, are we still doing phrasing?

      Damn! Halle Berry?! Oh man, this is the best… I watched Jonas Bros one, it was good, they were dying

      • And they turned Nick’s reaction to my sauce into a meme. “Tasty….not too spicy, oop! It’s a creeper.” (They all cough & rice for the milk)

        Man, I couldn’t have scripted that any better.

        Sure hope Halle digs the Dog! (On the flip side, of she says “yuck”, I believe seppuku is an option)

                Oh that’d be amazing. I heart her so much.

                Also, called it on Cutch. Well, I typo’d it but you knew what I meant.

                He wasn’t exactly lighting the world on fire but he was reliable. Goodrum just got dropped so I grabbed him up. I figure maybe even an upgrade considering ‘cutch’s Lack of SBs & mediocre average. And hopefully no drop in R, which was mostly what Cutch was giving me. Ugh tho.

                Also, is it me or would literally any other team have moved Riley up in the order by now? I mean, 6th? After Markakis? It’s mind-boggling. That can’t last, can it?

                • Grey

                  Grey says:

                  Riley will get moved up the stop hitting then they’ll blame that rather than his 415 BABIP

    Have you watched any of W Smith in LA? Kid’s a gamer! He roped a double in his 2nd AB then stole a base in the 9th and was originally called out and got overturned.

    Dodgers should consider keeping the kid around.

    Would you drop Biggio or Urshela for Shaw?

    3b slot is only temp until Dozier comes back, 2b also until Scooter is back and Shaw could fill either. Will end up being a bench bat.

    Thanks, as always!

  82. Fred says:

    Can Lauer finally be trusted and taken seriously as a pretty good pitcher? If so, would you drop Kingery, Musgrove, or Harold Ramirez for him?

  83. Twins Peaker says:
    (link)

    Pablo on the bench today @Milwaukee, right? It’s Coors Light and a potential silver bullet to opposing pitchers.

  84. Am I the only one still holding out playing time & subsequent production hope in Aguilar? In a limited moves league, we are stingy with our transactions. BUTT, Christain Walker has been made available. With riding the hot-hand not really an option, is there belief enough in Walker’s bounce back to commit to him long term? Or should I get back into attempting a one man Aguilar prayer circle? & speaking of shows, tried “What We Do In the Shadows” yet?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d want Walker over Aguilar, but I guess if very stingy with waiver wire moves, maybe hold — nah, haven’t watched that, good?

        It’s Jemaine from “Flight of The Concords” show. A modern day Staten Island Vampire spoof. If you liked Concords, it takes it a whole further level. Hysterical premise and characters. + about 25 minutes also. So no harm if you don’t dig it. But damn its funny. On FX. Thanks for the Aguilar – Walker perspective. Aguilar just feels like one of those regretful second half drops. Yet, Shaw’s return might just grab more ABs; if that’s even possible at this point! Ugh. Thanks again.

    Looking to upgrade hitting. Got offered Devers for buehler in a standard 5×5 keeper league, but can’t see myself wanting to do that. Flaherty or Thor a better counter? Don’t want to undervalue Flaherty, but not sure where to value Devers in this.

    Hey Grey,

    Two thoughts today.

    First, remember when you said the Brewers would send down Hiura and I said no way! Then you said “watch” and I replied that I hate you because you were always right about these things. Well, as usual, you were right. But I don’t really hate you!

    Next, thought #2, would you take a chance on Chance and cut Astudillo to take that chance?

    • Grey

        Thanks! I took Sisco and cut El Tortuga. I like the upside Sisco has in Coors Field East. Also liked your approval of the move, so I did it.

        Very disappointed in the Brewers sending Hiura down. Hope he’s back up in a month or so.

    Disclaimer: I’m probably tinkering with my roster too much.

    I owned Chavis in a 12 team, H2H, 6×6. I dropped him for Dietrich after your sell post. But I know Dietrich isn’t exactly ROS friendly.

    Would you want Cesar Hernandez over either of them? Someone made a good point about Cesar moving to lead off spot. I’d try to trade Blake Parker before he officially loses his job.

    • Grey

      I’d go Cesar

      • Alex says:

            Thanks, Grey.

            So I have Wade Davis, Robles, Parker, C. Mart for saves and speculative saves. I’m middle of the pack with saves, so I don’t think I should necessarily punt.

            They rejected Parker for Cesar, but countered with Wade Davis for Cesar. Gotta hold there, right?

                    He likes Dietrich and Parker for Cesar. I’m pulling the trigger.

                    Regardless of Cutch, I think I want Cesar as my 2B. Parker is about to be useless anyways.

    10team h2h 8×8 league. r,hr,rbi,tb,k,sb,avg, ops
    W,L,QS,K,SV,H,ERA,WHIP
    I’d hate to lose Bregman, but I do have Lindor and Correa at SS. I could figure out 3B (Sano is available on the wire) Benintendi would be a huge upgrade at CF (have Myers now) I don’t care about Elias, but losing Hicks and Martinez I’m not worried about.

  109. Dave D says:

    Btw, I watched some of the Angels/Cubs yesterday and Cahill was fine for 4 innings. In the sixth he had clearly lost it and Ausmus waited way too long to yank him. Anderson buckled with the bases stacked but Ausmus really showed poor instincts with pitching moves. I think he’s actually worse than Sciosciapath that way,

    Now I need another starter for this (Tue-Mon) period in our 14-team QS league.

    Corbin Martin vs BAL looks like a good one, doesn’t it?

    Others that look good are

    Anibal Sanchez (vs CHW and @ CHW)
    Chase Anderson (MIA & PIT)
    Thornton vs NYY
    S.Anderson @NYM

        OK, thanks.

        Now I need a RP, also…or maybe TWO? It’s a saves+Holds league so I’ve had Hansel Robles and Ryne Harper.

        Harper hasn’t done much.

        How about Zack Britton, Ty Buttrey, Alex Claudio, Pedro Baez, or Kahnle, Oberg, Bettis or J.Diaz??

    Philosophy question:
    How much of a batter being “hot” do you attribute to seeing the ball well for an extended period (like a hot basketball shooter) vs. a string of great matchups?

    Example, many people saying “Renato Nunez is red hot!”
    However, it was pointed out by Rudy prior to his hot streak that he had an amazing string of matchups coming up. How do you distinguish?

    • Dave D says:

      Its cosmology. Start reading their natal charts and figure out their good planets.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Think they go hand in hand usually… but sometimes a guy is so hot he’s hitting everyone… sometimes good matchups lead a guy to start hitting everyone even after that great matchup

    With Glasnow hurt, I am regretting dropping Clevinger when he first went down with that upper back injury – and now it looks like Clevinger will be back at the end of June. Grey, can I get a hug?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sure, but just wait for a setback and Clevinger is looking at an August return

    Hey i got a few things ive been pondering.

    I just picked up swanson, i have lindor and am trying to trade him. 4 of, 2 Util spots, 1 ss
    Is swanson/lindor going to be better than marte, eaton, brantley or tapia? I was going to milk Tapia until blackmons back then see but then i saw dansby, jw what you would do

    And drop cesar hernandez for macneils return or drop macneil?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I don’t like Eaton, but Swanson’s just ok — I might like Cesar over both if McCutchen’s out a while and Cesar moves up

    Grey, you’re god damn saint and Trooper for answering literally every question, everyday in this forum. It’s why your the defacto #1 fantasy guy in my mind (and why I’m also a mad man for reading almost every comment)

    Dynasty trade question for you.

    Was offered Realmuto for Andrew Vaughn and Khris Davis. I have Alonso long term and catcher right now is Ramos. Is it really worth considering this for a top 3 catcher?

    Thanks as always for you advice!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks!

      I’d want Davis side

      • Dong Show says:
        (link)

        Thanks Grey. This answer kind of answers my suspicions on what I thought. Prob not worth it.

        Have a great rest of the day!

    Buehler has been looking good since May, excluding his previous start. He’s been getting K’s finally, ratios solid and 5 QS in last 6. This owner is less worried about him now.

    Who would you want ROS between Carrasco and Morton for QS and ratios?

    • Immaculate Inning says:
      (link)

      Actually, please rank these for QS and ratios ROS

      1. Morton
      2. Marquez
      3. Carrasco

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        German, Carrasco

    Woww tv guides… i remember seeing the hot cougars from the soap opera shows on the cover

    Keeper league would you trade segura for buxton?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I used Miss Piggy TV Guide cover in the spank bank

      I’d take Bux

      Biggio, Kingery, coin flips tho

    BN dyson (OF)
    DL: molina, mcneil

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      gotta think it’s one of dyson/franco, but maybe gone varnish will lose enough playing time with scooter maybe?

  124. avogt555 says:
    (link)

    Sadly dropping Hiura. Who would you pick up on waivers? Dietrich, Choo, Renfroe Or Shaw? Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Think Choo has good matchups this week

  125. drosey44 says:

    10 team H2H. 2 pts for runs scored and rbi, 1 pt for hit, 2 for 2b, 3 pt for 3b, etc.

    Dropping one to make room for Cruz: who?

    Chavis, F. Reyes, Senzel, or Pence?

  126. Ryuserious says:
    (link)

    Lourdes or Travis Shaw? Shaw is on waivers.

  127. Ryuserious says:
    (link)

    Soler or Domingo Santana ros?

  128. abmsports23 says:

    How would you rank the following batters as $5 (minimum) keepers for next year?

    Sano, Piscotty, Brandon Lowe, Tapia, Yandy Diaz, Kingery, Peraza

    Looking to trade a few of my extra bats but wondering which I should hold for next year.

    • abmsports23 says:
      (link)

      Probably should have mentioned it’s a 14-team h2h points league with a deep bench

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      A lot can change still

      Sano, Piscotty, Tapia

      • abmsports23 says:
        (link)

        So you would be fine trading away Kingery, Peraza, Lowe, amd Yandy?

        Im looking to snag a SP or 2 and one of the teams that is out of it has Folty, Eovaldi, Trevor Williams and Kimbrel that he’s willing to give for a potential keeper or 2.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Sure, I don’t know if any of these guys gets it done tho

  129. Bjooooohns says:
    (link)

    Got offered a trade in a Dynasty league and would love some feedback:

    I was offered Machado and Benintendi for Acuna Jr. I love Acuna, but it’s definitely a proposal I’m struggling with…

    • Bjooooohns says:
      (link)

      Fogot to add that it’s an OBP league, if that tips the scales either way.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d take Machado side

  130. J-Money says:
    (link)

    Whatup G,

    In a 12 team OPS league, you like Vogelbach or Shaw? Was high on Shaw as were you, then dropped him once he was sent down. Dozier on the IL, so this is likely a temporary fill in.

    Thanks homie

      • J-Money says:
        (link)

        Was afraid you’d say that. Thanks man.

  131. big league choo says:

    10 team 5×5 obp dynasty

    Was just offered Vladimir Guerrero Jr for my Gary Sanchez

    Take it before he cancels?

  132. Thomas Petrone says:

    carlos carrasco worth a buy low for ROS? maybe trade Paul DeJong for him?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds fair, I like Carrasco as a Buy Low, but also like DeJong

  133. Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
    (link)

    NL only 10 team h2h with OBP over AVG, net steals over steals and total bases added.

    gotta drop somebody for mcneil back today.

    C wieters
    1B freeman
    2B wong
    SS NEWMAN! (2B)
    3B riley (OF)
    CI kike (almost all positions outside catcher/3B)
    MI gone varnish (2B/SS)
    OF (4) conforto, harper, rhysus (1B), bader
    util (1) franco (3B)
    BN dyson (OF)
    DL: molina, mcneil

    thinking franco/dyson but maybe peraza from the playing time and he’s now listed as lefty side only guy, and this is before scooter gets back.

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      2. different league drop thames or c.stewart first for mcneil back. OPS, total bases, hits added.

  134. Joe Schmo says:
    (link)

    Rolling out the Beebs vs MIN tonight? 12 team roto league and I’m ahead in the innings projection cap. This start worries me. Thanks!

    Haven’t watched Chernobyl yet too busy lately.
    How good is it?

      • FrankGrimes says:
        (link)

        Nice. I’ll check it out.
        My razz nfbc teams bench is literally too small.
        Crazy. With Freeland being the 6th major leaguer sent to minors so far haha. And 7 injuries. Haha.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Haha, when you’re relying on Freeland: ouch

          • FrankGrimes says:
            (link)

            Waiting for samardjza to be sent down next!

              • FrankGrimes says:
                (link)

                My whole team got “Chernobyl‘d”

  139. prestige says:

    SON loves Vargas at home vs Giants tomorrow. Would you stream him in 12 team league?? I don’t trust him

  140. krazyivan says:
    (link)

    Summer break starts this week with students going home for the summer. Going to celebrate by starting Chernobyl and trading for a player at the cornerstone.

    Would you flip Dahl, Chavis and Carrasco for Baez and Folty?

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds like fun! I’d take Baez

  141. Tbone says:

    10 team head to head dynasty

    My Moncada for Woodruff and Buttrey

    I have Hiura waiting in the wings.

    Would you do it? Is it enough?

  142. Jerseyjon says:
    (link)

    10 team h2h. Riley and Conforto for Rendon?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Rendon but fair

  143. Harley Earl says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey,

    Thought you might be interested to know Segura is batting third again tonight, between Harper and Hoskins. I like his counting stats to go up if they’ll keep him there longer than one damn game this time!!! BUY!!!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah that’s awesome for him!

  144. Stephen Lyon says:
    (link)

    This Hiura thing is a right pain in the arse. I only have one NA spot and it’s currently occupied by Kyle Tucker, so I can really only hold one of these guys in order to have any sort of roster flexibility.

    Who’s going to be more 2019-relevant?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Hiura definitely will be back, Tucker is a wild card

  145. Steve says:
    (link)

    14T obp – L Gurriel or Cooper @ UTIL?

    Thanks

  146. Worm Burner says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey,

    Poor man’s 1st basemen……..What order do you like for immediate and ROS?

    Ryan Braun, Daniel Murphy, Travis Shaw

    Thank you sir

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Murphy, Braun, Shaw — the last two might flip flop

  147. CP says:
    (link)

    Drop one of aguilar, thames, or hiura in nl-only redraft?

  148. krazyivan says:
    (link)

    I’m done with Josh Donaldson. I’m not sure if its just age or that he doesn’t take PEDs, but enough already. Should I try Kingery, Shaw or Christian Walker?

  149. Dancin Homer says:
    (link)

    Framber Valdez taking over for Martin’s rotation spot & gets BAL for his first start.

    Worth taking a flyer on in 12-team redraft leagues?

    Would need to drop either Hiura or Yordan Alvarez (or Jimmy Nelson, but he starts tomorrow)

    As always, thank you in advance

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Nah, he’s not stretched out — will only go a few innings

      • Dancin Homer says:
        (link)

        Thanks Grey.

        On a side note, I only have 1x NA spot and currently have Alvarez occupying it. Is it worth keeping both him and Hiura or should I cut 1 loose?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Think you can lose Yordan, the Astros don’t seem interested in bringing him up (which I say the day before they do)

          • Dancin Homer says:
            (link)

            …so I’ll hold onto him for another day or 2 so Houston can prove you wrong/right; got it.

            Thanks again!

  150. TJ says:
    (link)

    Drop Mallex or Schwarber to add Pressly?
    Thanks!

    • TJ says:
      (link)

      Or Yordan?

  151. abmsports23 says:
    (link)

    Need a backup 1b. Yuli, Belt, or Walker?

  152. prestige says:
    (link)

    Favorite start for tomorrow in a league where K’s don’t count. So basically need ERA + the W

    Darvish home vs Rockies (Marquez)
    Pena home vs A’s (Mengden)
    Mengden @Angels (Pena)
    Hudson vs Reds (Desclafini)
    Vargas home vs Giants (Beede)

  153. kilkennybrian says:
    (link)

    12 team 6×6 (OpS)
