“Keep on go on wondering why, I got out of bed at all,” which are the lyrics for Thank You by Dido, which was the chorus for Stan by Eminem, and I want to thank you, Kwang-Hyun Kim (7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 0.63) as he was activated from the IL after having kidney problems, and to misquote Eminem, “I Stan Kim.” Actually, here’s Eminem singing The Golden Girls theme song, “Stan Kim for pitching a gem.” Eminem is a big Golden Girls fan, obvi. Any hoo! What a year by Kim, whoa. He has 24 consecutive scoreless innings, and has allowed only one home run all year. Granted, he’s only thrown 28 2/3 IP all year, has allowed only two earned runs all year, and that’s less than a month of a regular season. But, wow, what a year! We’ll leave it at that. Will Eminem, or us for that matter, be singing The Golden Girls theme song, “Stan Kim for pitching a gem” in 2021? That seems less likely. His peripherals are not particularly inspiring, but for this year *genuflects* Stan Kim, Stan Kim, Stan Kim. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Austin Dean – Hit the IL with an elbow strain. Dean’s elbow ligaments are yelling, “You’re tearing me apart!”

Ryan Helsley – 1/3 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 8.59, and the blown save. Then, in game two of the doubleheader, Tyler Webb (1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 2.30) got the save. Mean’s while, staring into the abyss, I sigh, expecting Andrew Miller to get the majority of the saves for St. Louis. They do have to play 30 games in the next ten days, so it could be an all hands on deck-type scenario for closer. Like The Love Boat, but with Captain SAGNOF.

Josh Lindblom – 5 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 5.26. Hopefully you had more faith in Lindblom than I had in him. Though, his two-start week was tasty, and Streamonator loves his next start.

Jedd Gyorko – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer. As EverywhereBlair said in his top 100 starters rankings, Gyorko’s the best Brewers’ hitter. It’s true, and sad.

Corbin Burnes – 4 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 10 Ks, ERA at 1.98. Burnes is a top 30 starter next year? Easily? Top 20? No? No need to answer; you can just shake your head; I can see you. *leans out from behind a tree* Hey.

Pablo Sandoval – Signed with the Braves and sent to their alternate training site. Alternate training sounds perfect for him, because every time he trains he gains 25 pounds.

Max Fried – Will rejoin the Braves on Friday vs. the Mets. Assuming Fried doesn’t cross paths with Sandoval with him yelling, “Batter up!”

Cole Hamels – Will return on Wednesday vs. the Orioles. “Fried…Orioles?” That’s Sandoval really enjoying his new team’s upcoming schedule. Hamels won’t be worth owning anywhere, so *raspberries lips* “Are those lips made of raspberries?” Okay, enough, Sandoval!

Touki Toussaint – 2 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 8.88 as he was recalled. Ironically, the Braves couldn’t recall why.

Ryan Mountcastle – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer. He’s firmly in the top 100 overall next year, right? I’m asking because I love him and that might be clouding my judgment.

DJ Stewart – 2-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 7th homer, and 3rd homer in the last six games, and, yo, DJ pump that hot schmotato party!

Jose Iglesias – 4-for-4, 3 runs, 4 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .370 and has a .504 slugging, even if that was his first homer. Iglesias is having a career year (100 at-bats).

Jesus Luzardo – 4 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.32. He was walking all over the Mariners until the 5th inning, then Jesus sunk. *blasts Losing My Religion*

Marcus Semien – 2-for-6, 4 RBIs and his 7th homer, and his 2nd homer in three games. It’s a white knuckle adventure for the other team when Semien gets hot, which also sounds like a 1950s Sex Ed pamphlet.

Stephen Piscotty – Out with a knee sprain. When asked how long he’d be sidelined, Piscotty didn’t know, but screamed it repeatedly in third person.

Sean Murphy – 1-for-3 and his 6th homer. Nothing lights your loins like some catcher talk, so, on our Player Rater, Murphy’s been pretttttttay pretttttttay meh.

Mike Minor – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 5.40. I’m fascinated in finding out if 7-inning games work in a pitcher’s favor, because they know they only have to go seven vs. nine. Also, I think 7-inning doubleheaders might be out next year, so I’m not that fascinated.

Jake Lamb – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 1st homer. That ball for Lamb went bah bah back.

Jose Marmolejos – 1-for-5 and his 6th homer. Hadn’t seen him before, but watched his homer yesterday and The Gypsy King has big-time power to straight-away center.

Kyle Lewis – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 10th homer. *out on a log raft along the Mississippi with a Filthy Stowaway Urchin* Filthy Stowaway Urchin, “The river sure is deep.” Me, clean-cut, wind through my long-flowing hair, contemplatively, “Not as deep as my love for Kyle Lewis.” Filthy Stowaway Urchin, “That’s deep.” Me, pointedly, “Not as deep as my love for Kyle Lewis.” Filthy Stowaway Urchin, “I was still talking about the river being deep.” “Can we just have some silence?”

Dinelson Lamet – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.12. Someone teach this young man a third pitch this offseason. Please. I want him to be better than deGrom.

Wil Myers – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 13th homer, hitting .301. Can’t wait for him to have one of the worst Aprils on record next year and we can send out invites for the world’s largest pity party. It’s gonna be so much fun: apps, dancing, misery.

Trent Grisham – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 9th homer, hitting .272. Still has been valuable, but definitely has fallen off as of late, and fallen to 9th in the order. Though, the 1927 Padres have eight little Trouts in front of him.

Dustin May – Should be able to start on Wednesday. His bruising has subsided. He thinks. With so many freckles, it’s hard to tell.

Clayton Kershaw – 6 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.28. The last few collapses in the playoffs were tragic, but Kershaw wasn’t quite himself going into the postseason. This year’s collapse is gonna be epic.

Jose Berrios – 5 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 4.15. Corbin Burnes supercharges my nethers; Zac Gallen giving me the giddy-ups; Sixto Sanchez got me in Sixto Mode, and Jose Berrios is about to fall into the 150s overall next year with a big snooze.

Gio Urshela – Will be activated today, Tuesday, the 189th day of March.

Aaron Judge – Resumed swinging. Wow, that was a long check swing.

Nick Senzel – 0-for-3 as he was activated from the IL after missing a month for undisclosed reasons. Ooh, I wonder what it was. Could he have had crabs? Wait, are you telling me if he had crabs they would’ve said he had crabs? Oh, then I have no idea. Trying to keep that shizz hidden is such a joke. Utter nonSenzel.

Joey Votto – 2-for-5 and his 8th and 9th homer. He’s hitting…Guess. C’mon, Votto is a great average hitter, right? Are you falling for this bait? No? Okay, he’s hitting .225. He hasn’t had a good batting average in two years, and he’s not even a great OBP bet anymore. Votto’s an interesting HOF case. He had a lot of crazy productive years, and was one of the best eyes ever, but starting his career late really cut into his overall stats. Under 2,000 hits, will reach 300 HRs, but it’s not been pretty–Holy crap, he’s under contract for three more years! Yikes. I guess he will reach 2,000 hits. Eventually.

Mike Moustakas – 1-for-7, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer. Moistasskiss!

Trevor Bauer – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 1.71. Pirates never really had a chance (since 1992).

Cody Ponce – 4 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 3.18. Fun fact! Ponce is Spanish for fountain. That’s not right, is it? I took 13 years of Spanish, but why do I think I might not have learned anything? Any hoo! Ponce is pretty meh, and I’d use Streamonator for him (and anyone at this point).

Mitch Keller – 3 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 5.06. You were better off with Brad than Mitch Keller. For lack of a better phrase for Keller, no one saw that coming.

Ke’Bryan Hayes – 1-for-6, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, as he now hits third. It’s pretty wild that he went from barely cracking the bottom of the lineup to now hitting third. You think the Pirates had to act dumb at first? Ya know, pretending like they didn’t know what they had so no one would question why he wasn’t called up sooner. Or are they just dumb?

Josh Bell – 3-for-6, and his 7th homer. The Bell tolls are pricey, like, an 1-for-17 between each homer.

Pablo Lopez – 7 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.02. Pab-Lo is back! Thankfully, because I started him in a deep league for the two-start week, and I’m not exhaling until after his next start.

Miguel Rojas – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 3rd homer, hitting .370. Marlins are now 45 games into a 60-game season and Rojas consistently is batting at or near the bottom of the Marlins’ lineup, as he hits .370. Would be so hilarious if Rojas hits .400, but doesn’t get enough ABs to qualify for the batting title because Don Mattingly was too stupid to bat him higher in the order.

Starling Marte – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 5th homer. It’s a Marte party for Starling the Marlin!

Vince Velasquez – 3 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 6.46. Did he suck you back in? Man, he sucked me back in. And sucked. He did that too. Naturally.

Rhys Hoskins – Hit the IL with a forearm injury. That’s okay, the Phillies can replace him with my preseason sleeper, Scott Kingery! *slowly backs out of the room, backpedals into a room with Scott Kingery drafters, dodges a thrown tomato*

Scott Kingery – 1-for-3 and his 2nd homer, hitting .135. See? Sleeper! *dodges a head of cabbage*

Andrew McCutchen – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer. Fun fact! When Cougs comes home and asks me what I’ve been doing while she was out, I say, “Watching TV, Andrew Mycutebrucechen,” and I show a drawing of Bruce Chen on the back of a unicorn.

Zack Wheeler – After ripping a fingernail last week putting on his pants, Wheeler threw a bullpen session yesterday, and could be ready to go later in the week. The game will need to be pixelated though, because Wheeler can’t put on pants.

    Have a chance to get Montas for Ohtani (SP only) straight up. It’s a points league. Both would be $1 next year. Worried about Ohtani pitching well again, but any insight on Montas? Is he a good buy low? I don’t like using 2020 struggles as a way to downgrade too much. Too small a sample.

    Any interest there? Should I make that deal? Thanks.

      I’d take Ohtani

      • Jimmy says:
        (link)

        Really? Interesting. I feel like there’s a chance he may not pitch again, but I guess you feel otherwise.

        I do feel had he had a full Spring and time off, he would have come in around July and dominated because he would have been 100%, which he was not this year.

        I also question if Montas had a career year because of the PED’s, but I don’t want to jump to that conclusion just yet.

        Are these your thoughts at all? Is Montas worth trying to acquire for 2021?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yes, they’re my thoughts, but Ohtani not pitching ever again makes him a top 50 bat and that’s better than Montas

          • Jimmy says:
            (link)

            One last question. This is Ohtani SP only. Not his bat. It’s a Yahoo league so here it’s only his pitching. I also own his bat for $1 as a separate entity. He’s in my batting lineup and right now Ohtani is on my IL as well under my pitching.

            Yahoo sucks.

    100% on Burnes. He feels like the guy all other sites rave about but are afraid to rank in the top 50 starters, meanwhile you’ll have him in his rightful spot as #20 or so!

    Serious question, among sometimes inefficient starters, Snell or Burnes. I know it should be Snell, but doesn’t it feel and look on paper like Burnes?

    • Wake Up says:
      (link)

      Snell or Burnes was the one where Azaria does the voice?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      That’s a fair question, think prolly still Snell bc he’s had that one big year already

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        Agreed, but it’s close! Feels like Snell at the top of the tier and Burnes at the end of the same tier.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
            (link)

            For sure. SSS abound, but also guys get a year older nonetheless. Like, for me, I have a $19 Snell an $11 Carrasco or $4 Burnes who I can keep as my SP2 + it’s really feeling like Burnes is the right choice there…

    Wonderful, only one word needed. I’m on a minimalist tack.

    a. Gyorkoin2020=What a jerk for playing well this year as opposed to any previous year.

    b. Iglesias is having a career CAREER!

    c. That’s harsh for Pirates fans to swallow, always seeing Barry Bonds’ throw from left field that was too late to retire the slow-footed Sid Bream!

    d. Mrs. Helen Keller is none too pleased after Mitch’s recent failure. ‘Why can’t you pitch like your brother Brad? You are a failure just like your father.’

    e. Thank you much for your prayers for Minor. Now stay there again, I need the same for Dunning to get 5 IP without blowing up. If it’s not possible, tell me now and I’ll put him on my bench. Am desperate like I said yesterday to get 9 IP per day for the rest of the season. Yesterday I got 8 IP – Minor 7 IP and Devin Williams 1 IP.

    f. MLB quote of the day for September 15, 2020

    ‘Always better to go 5 for 5 than 4 for 5.’

    Ivan Rodriguez Torres, aka ‘Pudge’. Am continuing, he was the Rangers’ best player maybe.

    Had a 9 seasons of 50% caught stealing and finished with the best caught stealing of base stealers at 45.6%.

    His 162-game average.

    654 PA, 611 AB, 86 R, 181 H, 36 2B, 3 3B, 20 HR, 85 RBI, 8 SB, 4 CS, 33 BB, 94 K, .296/.334/.464 slash line, 106 OPS+, 284 TB

    His best season probably the year he won the MVP, 1999.

    630 PA, 600 AB, 116 R, 199 H, 29 2B, 1 3B, 35 HR, 113 RBI, 25 SB, 12 CS, 24 BB, 64 K, .332/.356/.558 slash line, 125 OPS+, 335 TB

Will study today and tomorrow and take the test either Thursday or Friday. The agency organizing the exam is called ALTA which operates out of Atlanta.

    I didn’t know much on Marmolejos prior to this recent hot streak, except for the fact that it sounds like I’m chewing on marbles when I try to say his name.

    Just learned that he was the 2015 Nationals Minor league POTY. That’s pedigree baby! Picked him up in a deep dynasty where he’ll be Minors eligible for a while, so I can stash him as needed. Look forward to seeing what Dipoto might have found with this guy.

    The Coolwhip Stan Take: What if i told you Grisham has a quiet 10 game hitting streak, batting .429 in that window with 10 R, 3 SBs to go with the HR last night and batted 9th 4/10 and leadoff the other 6 games… *whispers* 9th is the midgame leadoff hitter, just ask Maddon lol

    Sometimes you’re such a bad loser. It’s sad that you are actually rooting for someone to fail.

    You can’t stand that Wil Myers is good and you were completely wrong. I also told you to be in on Kwang-Hyun Kim and got mocked here for it.

    Nobody can be right all the time. Hell, I thought Alex Reyes was the real deal and he sucks ass. Just accept that Wil Myers is great when healthy and handled properly by his manager. You don’t go almost 30/30 twice and suck.

    just triple-checking: is it really ok to drop Rizzo? Hittertron loves him tonight. And for Finals week, next week, he gets very high marks. I have Votto, Pete Alonso, Bobby Dalbec. I’m wasting a spot keeping one of these guys benched every day. Rizzo, the one to go? Thx!

    As expected, the acquisition of Pillar put an end to Hillard’s playing time in Denver. Last 7 games he’s gotten 5 DNPs, 1 pinch hit appearance, and one start.

    I get that the Rox aren’t that far out of a playoff spot with two weeks to go, but playing Kemp and Pillar over Hilliard is dumb.

    Bud Black is the worst.

        No but I picked him up in my deeper weekly league thinking he was throwing in the rangers series. Maybe was never a good choice, but now I’m stuck with him and just hoping that he gets a start!

    Been a Padres season ticket holder for 35 years, and now, with their best team ever, I can’t go to a game.

        Padres are the real deal. With a healthy Myers, and a happy Hosmer, Machado, Tatis, Grisham, Profar, Nola, Cronenworth, and top of the line staff and a great pen, I’m hoping to finally SEE a World Championship while I’m still alive.

    Grey,

    Hate to double dip on Manaea again, but it just worked so well against Houston. Are you confident enough to send him out @COL? Won his last 4 while only allowing 1ER in each of those. Roto league still trying to improve ERA/WHIP.

    Thanks!

    Who’s starting Taijuan Walker @NYY tonight? He’s been good all (short-)season, and the Yanks’ lineup isn’t what it used to be — but still feels kinda scary…

    I’m sure many pitchers could make it into the top 20 only having to throw 4 2/3 innings per start.

    Grey, how much would you give up for Kelenic in a 20 team dynasty if you were rebuilding? Is Sano and Gray too much? Franmil, Javier too much? I know it’s a bit of a vague question. Just gauging your general sentiment toward acquiring him at high costs. Thanks!

    I’m bloated at 1B/3B/Util and my OF is a mess. Tapia is DTD (though if he comes back, next few games at Coors). Winker is back but he’s like 1-22. Frazier’s been OK but not more. Suarez just hit the paternity list but he had like 1 hr in 10 days.

    I want to drop at least one, or more, in order to add Deivi, either B.Anderson or Dahl, and/or some high end relievers for end-of-season ratio purposes. If I dropped one or two people, who should be it? I’m thinking Suarez (I can always try to FAAB add him in a couple of days), and then either Tapia and/or Frazier depending on Tapia’s health.

    12-team, standard redraft

    C – Smith; 1B – Abreu; 2B – Albies; 3B – Jeimer; SS – Trea; OF – Moore, Frazier, Margot; Util – Voit; Bench – Bohm, Suarez, Tapia (dtd), Winker (dtd); IL – Judge

    SP – Clevinger, Hendricks, Justus, Maeda, Sixto, Urquidy
    RP – Bard, Holland, Pressly

    I have Yu and Urquidy starting tonight. I picked up Dunning for his 2 start week and am rolling him out tonight.

    My opponent started Touki last night and he has Rogers who gave up 2 runs and I have Pablo Lopez and Kintzler so I’m up big.

    I seen you suggested another commenter to bench Dunning, really? I see everyone telling me to start him for his 2 starts and you told me to go ahead and drop Gonsolin for him. Let me know because I have him active.

    Thanks!!

    Whats your take on Danny Duffy’s week? Missing todays start, in the doghouse, do you think he just gets pushed back a day or two?

    Mariners/Giants are postponed due to the air quality in Seattle.
    Also wondering which 1 to bench tonight of
    Mountcastle vsATL(ynoa)
    Tucker vs TEX(cody)
    Bregman vs TEx
    Grisham vs LAD(Gonsolin)
    The Astros have been struggling the most lately but hard to sit.

        Would you drop Gausman to pick up Canning for a spot start Thursday vs ARI? Or do you think Gausman would give you a better start @OAK on the weekend? looks like Gausman would probably have a juicy start vs COL next week while Canning would be a drop with a start @SD.
