I was combing through pictures on the subreddit r/WaffleHouseHotcakesShapedLikePresidents, marveling at a hotcake shaped like Harry S. Truman — did you know the S stood for Syrup?  Then I clicked on the Reddit user who posted that pic, Ididyourmomssomanytimes, to see what other things besides Truman hotcakes they were interested in, and I saw they were also on r/fantasybaseball, only this was fantasy as in D&D and Cecil Cooper was a wizard and the father of the little black kid in Stranger Things.  Any hoo!  If I were on the real fantasy baseball subreddit, I’d find a lot of talk about Kyle Tucker, this you can be sure of, said like Gordon Ramsay.  Tucker is already stashed by Prospector Ralph in my RCL — that *ucker!  Why the hype?  Pardon me as I sprinkle chia seeds on your brain.  He’s hitting .315 in Triple-A with 12 HRs, 13 SBs and he’s only 21 years old.  Kinda unfair that the Astros have this waiting in the wings, but, since they do, you know they will not wait very long to come him up, since (two since’s one sentence, grammar!) they are playing to win it all.  So, what are you waiting for to grab Tucker?  Cecil Cooper’s put a spell on your arms?  Aw, shucks.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

John Hicks – Or Tom Murphy.  Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.  Tom Murphy and John Hicks walk into a Fantasy Baseball Buy column, and the bartender says, “Why the long face?” And they say, “We heard there was a Sarah Jessica Parker lookalike contest happening here.”

Jake Bauers – Weird stuff with how long it’s taking for people to pick up Bauers.  Are you worried you need two spots for him?  Bauers is one guy.  A 15/15/.280 hitter.  Essentially Kiermaier without the injury history of the “Merely a flesh wound” guy.

Ryon Healy – Fun fact!  Ryon & Healy was the working title for Turner & Hooch.

Danny Valencia – Or as he’s known to a select few in SoCal, Danny Awesometown has a few homers this week.  I feel like I’ve explained this so many times, but very few know about it and it absolutely cracks me up every time.  The Awesometown reference is because Valencia, California tried to change their name to Awesometown to strum up tourism.  They’re famous for a Six Flags and a Red Lobster.  So, naturally, vandals wrote on every Awesometown road sign, “Not” Awesometown.  I’m dead emoji.  Here’s a good read on the rebranding, if you’re interested.

Wilmer Flores – I often make fun of Wilmer for crying after he was almost traded, but he is definitely one of my favorites because of the crying.  Dude cares!  (Which sounds like a bowling charity.)  It’s also why it drives me nuts that the Mets seem to try anything they can to get Wilmer out of the lineup.  If David Wright were healthy (hold your laughter), they’d bench Flores in a second for a .185-hitting corpse.  With that said (turn this ship around!), Flores has been hot.

Brad Miller – My MI shituation is best exemplified by Golden Earring’s lyrics from Twilight Zone when they sang, “I’m fallin’ down a spiral, destination unknown.  Double crossed messenger, all alone.  Can’t get no connection, can’t get through.  Where are you decent middle infielders on waivers?”

Enrique Hernandez – I just gave you my Enrique Hernandez fantasy.  It was written without me calling him Kiké Vandeweghe Hernandez once.

Ketel Marte – I’m listening to all kinds of shizz on my iTunes today, so excuse me, but Crooked I said it best, when he rapped, “Money from the trap house, beef pull the Macs out, stuntin’ pull the ‘llacs out, in case you cats doubt, I’m picking up every player I write about.”

Adalberto Mondesi – I’m all for guys having issues with their fathers, so I was thinking what would be better than Mondesi dropping his dad’s first name?  Best I’ve come up with (after thinking on it for 12 seconds), Adalberto is the name of his mom’s mailman.

Derek Dietrich – Straight shooting here:  Dietrich has 11 homers and is hitting .300.  Now look at the crap you have on your team, you telling me that’s worse than all your players?  That’s nearly better than Rhysus!  (Sorry, Rhysus, but you brought that on yo’self.)

Matt Duffy – He’s 6th in the AL in batting average, right behind Mike Trout.  Two pees and a poop, those two!

Jorge Polanco – I went over George Sunkenplace the other day, but that was Jorge Bonifacio.  How many Jorge’s trying to get a leg up?  Would’ve expected more from an Astro.  Hoping Polanco returns to ride the bench instead of my new All-Star, Eduardo Escobar, but I feel that is not 100% likely.  Maybe they platoon.  Honestly, I’m not sure, but in deeper leagues, it’s worth grabbing Polanco (13/13 last year) to see his playing time.  By the way, if you have to think if your league is deep enough, it is almost 100% of time not deep enough.

Mark Trumbo – Feels like a guy who almost assuredly will be some people’s idea of a sleeper next year.  They also thought Miggy was a good bargain this year.  Either way, Trumbo has been hitting bombs recently.

Avisail Garcia – Has been hot this week and the Hitter-Tron thinks all carburetors should be fondled low and slow like good BBQ.

Manuel Margot – Nearly made Margot the lede this week, but A) Padres. B) I’ve already dug my heels in on him, and called him a sleeper this preseason. C) There’s no C.

Randal Grichuk – During the week, there’s just so much going on that I can’t possibly mention everything, but it did not go unnoticed that Grichuk hit leadoff the other day.  Oh.  *after a 4-month search on Nepal’s Craigslist, hires a sherpa, travels through the worst conditions man’s ever known to reach the summit at Everest*  Kay.

Ryan Tepera – Is the Jays closer.  Don’t make me come up with positives.

A.J. Minter – I’d even grab Dan Winkler because I don’t trust Arodys Vizcaino to return healthy.  Shoulder injuries are scary eh-eff.

Seranthony Dominguez – Putting aside Gabe Kapler and his penchant for snorting green M&M’s and pulling pitchers every 7th pitch, look at Seranthony’s stats.  How is he available?  He has a 0.66 WHIP with 34 Ks in 25 2/3 IP.  That’s ludicrous.

Shane Bieber – I already gave you my Shane Bieber fantasy.  It was written while Photoshopping myself into famous historical photos.

Zach Eflin – Here’s what I said the other day, “We are results-driven in this crazy hobby that takes 8,000 man hours and rewards us with a $45 check from our closest frenemy.  Since we are results-driven, I can understand why we may not have picked up Eflin yet.  He only has a 3.02 ERA, 9+ K/9, 2.2 BB/9, 94+ MPH fastball, 32nd best xFIP–Wait, these are good results.  Okay, now I’m not sure why you haven’t picked him up.  Fear of success like your mom says?”  And that’s me quoting me!

Joey Lucchesi – Hey, it’s Joey Lucchesi of the Brooklyn Fuggedaboutits.  Hey, Joey Lucchesi of the Brooklyn Fuggedaboutits, say hello to your mother for me.  I like Lucchesi, but his results since his return from injury have been scattershot like a stuttering porn actor, however, the Stream-o-Nator is calling this one, like it calls funeral parlors for something to do on a Friday.

Sam Gaviglio – Another mafioso and Stream-o-Nator call.  “I wasn’t related to the deceased, I was just hoping to meet some friends.”

SELL

Sean Newcomb – Briefly mentioned Newcomb the other day as a guy who had worse peripherals than his ERA and hype may indicate.  So, I’m back here again to rub salt in your gash.  *shudders*  I mean, okay, you have problems with moist, but gash is good?  That is in the top five worst words in English language — gash, moist, cancer, secrete and yeast.  So hard to lance a boil without a moist secretion coming from a gash, huh?  Any hoo!  I believe people still like Newcomb — it’s a recently purchased hairbrush, what’s not to like? — so you should be able to trade him for something worthwhile.  I’d check the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer, but I would not sell him for a ride in Jame Gumb’s wicker basket.

    Cut one Avisal Garcia or Deshields , both bench bats right now . 6×6 roto. I’m 3rd in SB, 5 behind 1st & 11 ahead of 4th

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Avisail, sounds like you need SBs

      • Joeg414 says:
        (link)

        @Grey:
        I do have T.Anderson, Moncada, Segura,Devers, Blackman,Hoskins.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          But DeShields adds more and you need SBs, no?

  2. NJ says:
    (link)

    Great right up! Speaking of Buys, I’ve been offered Dozier for Nola. Dozier hasn’t been good but Nola has…worth the risk?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds like a fair deal, think you can get Dozier cheaper

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      @NJ: I got Dozier for Corbin earlier this week.

      • NJ says:
        (link)

        @knucks: Thanks. But the guy I’m dealing with won’t give Dozier up that cheap…

  3. Terrence Mann says:
    (link)

    Why did the Rox call Murphy up if they’re only going to start him twice a week? So they could carry 3 catchers and pinch hit two of them every night (like yesterday)?

    dafuq?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      They are literally the worst, using ‘literally’ correctly here

    • LenFuego says:

      @Terrence Mann: “dafuq?” may be my favorite new word of the year.

    Hey Grey,

    SON was on the fence about Berrios @ Cubs yesterday, but just jumped up to a 7.3 today. Was scared of that offense, but now should I start him?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d start Berrios

    • jose says:
      (link)

      @GrassyKnollRedding: Contreras and Baez are both out of the lineup tonight. Probably why it jumped.

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        Yup, there ya go

        • GrassyKnollRedding says:
          (link)

          @Grey: Ugh. Bye bye ratios. Tuned in ten minutes ago to watch it all go to hell. He held them to 2 runs until the 5th, but when a guy’s determined to have a bad inning, there’s no stopping it: Single. HBP. Single. HR. FUBAR.

          I wish Arrietta would take Berrios under his wing and teach him how to only give up unearned runs.

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Yeah, that sucked

            • GrassyKnollRedding says:
              (link)

              @Grey: It seems like we’re at least a year or two early on Berrios taking that final step where we can start him against anyone. It’s especially frustrating on a day when that moribund offense actually gave him five runs to work with.

              • Grey

                Grey says:
                (link)

                Maybe, a 3.50 ERA is a win tho in today’s climate… asking for more might be too much

  5. Norm Ginsberg says:
    (link)

    I’m starting Elvis Andrus — cut him for DeJong (when healthy)?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Meh, different things, you should be able to trade Andrus vs. dropping him tho

  6. Smell The Glove says:
    (link)

    Drop Heaney for Eflin or hold? Could also drop either Ketel or Profar though it will leave me with only one bench bat.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d take Eflin — you don’t need Profar

  7. 200 Proof says:
    (link)

    Current Ohtani or past Zambrano for hitting?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’m go Big Z, you ever see what he did to a Gatorade bucket?

  8. DonnieB says:
    (link)

    Trades for a 12 team keeper league?
    My Nola at $4 for one more year for Arenado at $54 for two more years plus R Iglesias for $1 for one more year
    OR
    My Severino at $10 for one year plus Conforto at $8 for two more years for his Sale at $43 for one more year plus J Upton at $21 for one year. Best value? Cap space only allows one. Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Severino trade is terrible…. Nola for Arenado is fine to win this year if you need a bat

  9. Count de Monetballl says:
    (link)

    Thank you Prospector Ralph, I have had Tucker stashed since Acuna was called up in my N/A Slot. Nice to be ahead of the game for a change!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Prospector Ralph is sitting on Tucker in our RCL, so no thank you!

      • J-FOH says:
        (link)

        @Grey: you sound TUCKERed out

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I’m getting Tuckered IN!

          • J-FOH says:
            (link)

            @Grey: You are probably just UnTUCKERed

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              I live untuckered

  10. Wass says:
    (link)

    Grey ~ Follow up from yesterday, other manager is probably taking this, worse case I upgrade DDuffy though:

    Trading my JDon, Yoan, DDuffy for Pivetta/Suarez.

    Fair, Great or Meh for me? I’m leaning towards great haha

    Thanks as always and have an excellent weekend!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds solid to me, assuming Eugenio and not Andrew

      • Wass says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Correct! Yeah definitely not andrew, that would be brutal. Thanks grey!!

        • Grey

          Haha

    Please rank ROS, Alex Wood, Newcomb, Shane Bieber

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Hmm… Prolly go Newcomb, Wood, but in flux

      • Count de Monetballl says:

    (link)

    I was just poolside enjoying 90 degree weather and then one of my guys goes on the Sell column haha! All good… I have Knebel and Viz as closers in a H2H weekly, would you sell off Newcomb for Treinen or just hold him and add Rondon instead.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Aw man, I didn’t mean to ruin poolside Daqs! I’d take Treinen

    8 team AL Only 5×5 Standard Roto:

    Give: E. Rosario, Clev, Shane Greene, Tepera
    Get: Khrush, T.Bauer

    Would grab saves spec (from potential trades) RPs off the wire to fill the holes created – from Trivino, Fry, Leclerc.

    Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Bauer

        side — Trivino

  15. Jason says:

    Would you drop Schebler or Margot to pick up Tucker in a keeper league with OBP?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Schebler

    “On Friday night, as the surrounding Fort Myers hitters teed off for 20 hits, five homers and 14 runs around him, Sano went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts as the cleanup hitter.” via a Nick Nelson atricle this week from Twins Daily.

    The blob. Things will be looking up soon though. He’ll get called up to Rochester eventually and I’ll get to go see him burn some calories against my Iron Pigs. Actually… I’ll prob meet him in the chocolate covered/candied bacon line. Anyone have any kind words that they’d like me to pass along to my future new friend Miggy?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      HAHA Oh man that’s bad

  17. Let's Play Two says:
    (link)

    For the C position do I want Hicks or Molina in a standard, season-long roto (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG)? Doesn’t Molina have more pop?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Molina

  18. Cram It says:
    (link)

    Is this Kyle Tucker like when Preston Tucker and Derek Fisher were supposed to make some noise with the Astros? I have a suspicion they’re all the same person.

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: AJ Reed was called up!

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @knucks: Great! Him too!

    • LenFuego says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: Kyle is Preston’s younger brother. For reals.

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @LenFuego: Dang. That explains a lot.

    • Bull in a Chinese Restaurant says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: p.tucker was NEVER ranked like fisher was, and none of them ranked like tucker is (the newer tucker is). p.tucker was just some dude who came up before fisher.

    What are your projections for Brandon Phillips for the rest of the year?
    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      5-7 HRs, .260 AVG

    • Justin says:

      @LastPlace:

      A projection of disappointment. You eat a bucket of chicken in bed to drown out the sadness. Your sheets get greasy and you have to wash them. Now your sitting on a bed with no sheets and have heartburn. Is that what you want for yourself? Avoid BP!

    SON loves Rich Hill tonight ($26.3). That is a big time recommend by the SON. However, Hill scares the bejesus out of me. Would you stream him tonight?

    • Grey

      I’d stream him

    Put Tucker into perspective for me – let’s say Baby Vlad, Eloy, Brendan Rodgers and a healthy Senzel all get called up today – what’s your order and where does Tucker fall within that group?

  23. CP says:

    Honored to have my question in the last mailbag. There’s something strangely satisfying about having your initials mentioned with Johnny Dickshot. Anyways, would you drop either Villanueva or Camargo to add Wilmer or hold?

    Have a great weekend!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha, I’d lose Camargo… you too!

    Took your advice from this morning and just flipped Mazara for Newcomb.

    Now I find myself needing a #4/5 OF. I picked up Avasail Garcia earlier this week since weekly hitter planner was big on him. But, would you HODL long term or drop him for any OF you listed?

    Also, Peraza is in waivers. Is Dan Murphy worth dropping straight up for him? My 2B situation is needing improvement. I drafted Chris Taylor and Murphy thinking I was set…but now I’m feeling like I was set up.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d want Peraza… which OF depends on needs… Trumbo and Avisail aren’t same, ya know

      • Marty Jannetty_Was Set Up says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Its a points league that I’ve win 6/7 years for a pretty big payout.

        1Bs = 1pt
        2Bs = 2pt
        3Bs = 3pts
        HR = 4pts
        R = 1PT
        RBI = 1pt
        BB = 1PT
        SB = 2pt
        K= -1pt
        Theres also 1 point for every base. So, a homerun equals 10 points. One would think stacking sluggers is the move, but those Ks are brutal. My strategy has been to essentially roster my teams over the 7 years to mirror a 5×5 Roto team to get production every day.

      @Marty Jannetty_Was Set Up: Am I dropping Lamb or Braun to hold Kyle Tucker? Muncy us starting every day now and Lambs my CI/U occassionally. Braun is ranked pretty high on ROS player rater.

      Is Mike Montgomery worth holding or just a streamer? Saw in the morning comments you’re starting him over Marco Gonzalez.

        A bit Youtube happy on Friday’s. I promise this is my last one.

      @knucks: Knucks, by mentioning PGroove on the Razzball blog, two of my internet worlds just collided. I can’t say I listen to them much these days, but I definitely grew up traveling to see them and posting on their board. Any chance you posted back then? Good stuff!

      • knucks says:

        @Alex: Talking in place! Didn’t post very much. But was in there, glued to the happenings. Good stuff man.

        Unsure if you are on Spotify. But if you type in “anicholsnj” into Spotify search, you will find me. I look alot like Bobby Hill. A ton of playlists if you want to connect on there.

    Traded Newcomb to a Braves fan for Pivetta. Feeling good about it–even better after seeing his name in the sell. Newcomb’s starts have been weaker lately, striking people out early then fading in the 5th.

    On that same team (12 team H2H), I think I’ll have a bat to trade once DeJong returns. Can you help pinpoint any team needs? Any possible trade pieces? I don’t think there’s a clear drop on offense once DeJong returns.

    C – Yadier
    1B – Rizzo
    2B – Whit
    3B – Shaw
    SS – Bregman
    OF – Blackmon, Benintendi, Khris Davis
    Util – Desmond
    Bench – Peraza
    DL – DeJong

    SP – Morton, Syndergaard (DL), Pivetta, Mikolas, Rodon, Eflin, Musgrove (streaming), Richards (just sitting on my bench)
    RP – Vazquez, Hand, Barraclough

    My OBP and SLG. have been middle of the pack, but maybe Rizzo’s numbers getting better will help? Pitching has been decent across the board, but I’ve been low on SVs. Eflin and Rodon (and Pivetta) are new additions.

    Thanks for the team diagnosis.

      You can drop Peraza if you have to… can try to trade Khris for an SP maybe then play Desmond…

    What’s your best guess for when Tucker gets the call? And if he does get the call, would you take him over Bauers?

    • Grey

      I’d take Bauers for now, think in the next two weeks for Tucker

              He’s not that bad

    • LenFuego says:
      (link)

      @The Shoe: I have owned Tucker all year so I have been following all “when will he be called up” mutterings. The momentum has been growing for it because Tucker has been very hot – he is on a 17 game hitting streak. The first 6 weeks or so of the season, he hit about .280 with 3 HRs. The last 6 weeks? About .350 with 10 HRs. It seems inevitable that he will be called up pretty soon given how he is hitting, that the Astros could use an outfielder, and that the Super 2 date is certainly past – my best bet would be right after the Triple A All-Star game on July 11.

      One caveat about his performance – he is in the PCL which is very hitter-friendly compared to the IL. The leading IL hitter has a .887 OPS. 15 guys are better than that in the PCL, headed by Jabari Blash at 1.231. So you always have to take PCL numbers (like Tucker’s .920 OPS) with a grain of salt.

      FYI, the guy Tucker most reminds me of is Yelich.

      • The Shoe says:
        (link)

        @LenFuego: Wow, thanks so much for the insights LenFuego. Due to my league settings, I’m always looking for guys with great plate discipline, and it seems like Tucker has it. Some evaluators have even said he may even be too passive at times. In any case, thanks a ton!

    Yo Grey, i know this is pretty needs based, but trade my Walker Buehler for his Merrifield in a keeper league in which I am having trouble filling my 2b (went from Schoop to Odor now Ketel)? I hate giving up a young pitcher that looks like he can be an ace, but I do have Severino and Nola both on cheap contracts and Bumgarner though he is expensive and wont be a keeper. Thanks Grey!

    I played DFS tonight, which I only do on rare occasions. In one of those 4,000,000 entry one dollar affairs. The list of characters on my team is joyously hooptie. Dan Palka, Mark Reynolds and friends!

    Did I tell you, Alright, somebody dropped Jed Lowrie in the Oaktown Kids league. Fifteen teamer. Seemed like a crazy drop. He may regress a bit, but they were rostering Yolmer. They went big on Jed and got him at 104 with runner up at 79. Pretty good bid by the girl.

    How are you on Nelson Cruz’ nickname “Boom Stick?” I’m anti. He’s very Big Papi though. He’s the chronically under drafted old guy. Him and Aguilar have been carrying my NFBC team lately.

    I’m pretty interested in Rodriguez (also against the initial+Rod nicknaming convention) vs Yankees in the House the Jeter Built. Though I wouldn’t bet on it, I could see him being not terrible.

    1) OBP replacement for Correa: Anderson, Peraza, Profan, Crawford, Kike, Kingery, Russell

    I’m thinking Anderson, as I could probable use the extra steals and the 7.6% walk rate isn’t that bad.

    2) How would you rank Gallo, Suarez, and Carpenter ROS in OBP?

    3) Which one would you try to trade? None are droppable, right?

    that’s my ass for thinking COL might actually play murphy when they did for about most of a week. 20 team redraft h2h with slugging, OPS, total bases, hits added. had chirinos when i nabbed murphy, and barnhart was out there at the time. only good news is that barnhart probably gets dropped by the cervelli owner when he gets back.only starter (4/5 of games since back) left is hedges, him or murphy or e.diaz till cervelli is back (starting every day now)? these are only near everyday guys. if iannetta gets a bunch of murphy’s playing time he’d be an option too.

    this isn’t a league where i could just stream everyday, 80 moves per year, albeit i am under that projection just now.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d hold Murphy for now with a moves limit

      • Stupid Sexy Glanders says:
        (link)

        @Grey: well i have 50 out of 80 left on year, so i’m behind the 3.2 per week or however many i’d have for ROS (now have 3.57 left per week). could maybe wait till cervelli is back to nab a daily catcher like barnhart. if murphy played even 2/3 of the time i wouldn’t even have any issues with him, he’s literally missed 3 days in a row before today though, they’re jerking him around yet again. maybe iannetta’s defense is that much better (or they think so at least), but really it’s COL this guys are just idiots with players of a certain age group and have been forever.

    that’s odd, would’ve figured somebody who’s been dodging his comeuppance due to being a hubris filled (inaccurate) braggart would’ve tried to claim that good pena start yesterday as him “knowing it would happen somehow contrary to everybody else” since the guy is almost named similarly to his screen name.

    i think e-jax had a start almost exactly like this last year, he’s the near worst SON pick of the day and just kills it (or nearly). 2 baserunners (technically they walked hehe, or trotted), 6 K’s, 6.66 innings.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, but who’s starting him?

      • jason batteiger says:
        (link)

        @Grey: that’s the funniest part, last year i didn’t till he was pretty good over 3 times in a row, by then the next 5 were either horrible or useful and who knew how to predict which would be which, and even then only in deep (16’s and up) leagues.

    10 team OBP h2h league

    Need to start 4 and bench 2…I am down 2 HR, 3 RBI and 1 SB

    Carpenter v Folty
    Albies @ Gant
    Acuna @ Gant
    Haniger v Keller
    Gallo v Lopez
    Suarez v Peralta

    btw…this is why shallow leagues suck. Just got Acuna back from the DL and I am actively trying to trade one of these hitters for a pitcher and am getting no bites whatsoever…ugh

    I am leaning benching Suarez and Haniger. For Suarez, it has more to do with Peralta being death to right handed hitters in the majors. As for Haniger, I think I just like the match ups better. Gallo has been on fire the pst 2 days and gets Lopez at home. Acuna and Albies both have dynamic profiles that could net a homer or a stolen base. And Carpenter has been on fire lately and has good career numbers against Folty. What say you?

    Thank you sir!

    • bossmanjunior333 says:
      (link)

      @bossmanjunior333:

      Btw…need to mention my benching instincts have been off this week. I benched Carpenter for his 5 for 5, 2HR game and benched Gallo and Acuna yesterday, not cashing in either of their big days.

    I have an open DL spot and am 26 games up in a 12 teamer, H2H, saves and holds league.

    What do you think of these given I can be patient and aim for September. Would you do these?

    1. His Cespedes for my Seager (bench bat now)
    2. Cespedes and Ottavino for Seager and Britton
    3. Cespedes and Peacock for Seager and Britton

    4. Best bet for holds late in the season….Herrera, Robertson, Hirano. Top two please.

    Thank you sir!

    20 team redraft with OPS, total bases, hits, slugging added
    C murphy (not for long if this dude can’t even start 50% of the time, COL or not)
    1B rhysus (OF)
    2B flores (1B/3B)
    SS anderson
    3B box wine (TEX, 1B/OF)
    OF (3) rosario, stanton, meadows
    util (1) taylor
    BN cron
    DL jedong, the other white fish (ARI)
    cron hasn’t done well for a while and now is playing half the time, they have bauers play 1B most of the time and just anybody else gets the DH half the time over cron (literally anybody, today it’s cargo freaking 2 for god’s sake)
    . drop cron or even meadows for either/any of winker/canha? starting to look like flores is the hold when jedong is back here. he’s at least a possible backup for numerous positions.

      Meadows for Winker

  119. Mr. A Knife says:
    (link)

    uh oh, i already had DL issues (next year this goes to max in espn) only 3 now. keep 9, 2 SP, 2 RP (might move to just keep 1 RP, 2 SP and 1 P next year), and 5 hitters of differing positions (can have 2 OF, and can use any position elig for which a guy counts as). h2h with OPS, holds, total bases, hits, QS added. OBP over AVG.
    C uh oh
    1B goldy (K)
    2B harrison (3B)
    SS anderson
    3B andujar
    MI gone varnish (2B/SS)
    CI muncy (1B/3B whew was this a good pickup, him or andujar probably a keeper now)
    LF rhyus (1B, K)
    CF mcclutchin’ (RF)
    RF stanton (LF, K)
    OF puig (RF)
    util (1) brantley (LF)
    BN tucker (RF), mallex (CF/LF), schoop a doop (2B, used to be a keeper)
    DL r-zimm, otani (espn so i get both for price of one)

    SP (max 12 starts per week but since i streamed bieber i stopped streaming to keep him)
    bieber, V2, pivetta, cueto (he sounds back before darvish now), wood, morton, heaney, lasagna
    RP (max 5 slots): hand, kimbrel, bradley, kelly, alexander (man LAD have a rotating caroussel of useful RP from injuries)
    DL darvish

    1. drop r-zimm to DL stash V2 to stream here? muncy may have made r-zimm somewhat useless since i’ll have otani back anyway, and tucker or r-zimm or both have to be dropped.

      @Mr. A Knife: that’s a 14 teamer

      1. Can lose Tucker and Zimm

      • Mr. A Knife says:
        (link)

        @Grey: my hitting keepers are possibly weak enough that even though i KNOW he’ll be gone for 14 or however months otani longer term in a league where you get both for the price of one probably stays as a hitting keeper (count for DH)
        so goldy, rhysus, one of muncy/andujar (couldn’t do both anyway with already having 1B covered by goldy, can’t have 2 3B guys), stanton and one of:
        anderson/otani/schoop/harrison. plus next year we’ll have more than 3 DL’s.

    So did the Rockies just start Tom Murphy all those times to get us to drop our old catchers + psyche us out?

    Hard to see logic in a team that just sent down Jon Gray though…it’s like they think sabermetrics and advanced statistics are witchcraft!

        @Grey: he hit well too! So confusing!

        He and Tapia are starting today, but that and the Gray stuff are literally the only reasons why I (and no one in my 12 team weekly lineup keeper) picked up Tapia last night.

    Happy Sunday, thanks for being here.

    12 team roto,keep all with OPS and net wins, currently in first.
    I was offered Hamels and Doolittle for my Cmart. Trade analyzer likes it for me.
    Trade has progressed to Archer, Hamels Doolittle for Pivetta and Cmart.
    Hold or accept?
    I’m thinking both Archer and hamels might end up on better teams fr the net win category, I don’t like Cmart as a person and I can gain 3-4 points in saves and get some ratio help with Doolittle. I want to accept but I’m losing the best player. Thoughts?
