Ma nishtana, how is tonight different than every other night?  Because there’s some G-D regular season baseball!  Ah fanabla!  The Padres aren’t wasting any time with bird sex or Joaquin Benoit either as they traded for Craig Kimbrel.  Why do I get the sense that the Padres played 2,500 games of Strat-o-Matic this offseason and on Saturday it was 1249 to 1249 and they were like, “Nuh-uh, we didn’t pay $750 million in free agents to tie the World Series.  We need to get to that twelve hundred and fifty-first win!”  Then the Padres’ management patted themselves on the back saying they were Strat-o-Maticians like that wily Epstein guy.  Then another Padre official even said he thought that guy’s name was Wily Epstein.  So, Benoit now has the value of a film degree in Hollywood.  “Well, we were gonna let Spielberg direct this film, but this guy over here has a Master’s degree!”  In Atlanta, Jim Johnson or Jason Grilli could close games.  A Braves official said Juan Jaime could even close games.  I’m pretty sure he made up the name Juan Jaime.  Grilli seems the most likely candidate, and this has all the makings of a situation where you’re so pumped to be the first one to the waiver wire to grab him until Grilli is actually closing games and giving up three runs in the one lead the Braves have every two weeks.  Let’s get out of the lede to talk about the rest of the trade and actual baseball that was played last night!  Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend for fantasy baseball:

Melvin Upton – Also, traded to the Padres.  Is this like in elementary school when the mom says to the athletic brother that he can’t play kickball unless his schlubby brother plays too?  Does Melvin also eat chalk?  Is that how he got the nickname, B.J., because his lips were covered in some white gunk?

Cameron Maybin – Traded to the Braves.  This helps Maybin’s value, but his value was always good, his health wasn’t.  Injuries?  That’s so Maybin!  He also hurts Eric Young’s playing time, but Eric Young has had a starting job for the last five years and every time lost that starting job within two-to-three games of acquiring the job.  Maybin has a year of 8 HRs and 40 SBs under his belt as recently as 2011 with the Padres, and he’s only 28 years old.  Maybin is the guy to grab right now if you’re struggling at outfield.  If he stays on the field all year, he’s capable of an A.J. Pollock-type season and where did you draft him?  Around 150 overall?  Yup, I’m grabbing Maybin, or maybe that’s graybin.

Matthew Wisler – Also headed to Atlanta.  I bet in two years this becomes the highlight of this trade.  I love this guy, but he’s still a few months away from showing up in Tedturnerville.

Carlos Quentin – Braves also received him, but word is they’re going to designate him for assignment.  His assignment should be to work as a Jose Canseco stunt double.

Trevor Cahill – Traded to the Braves where he will play 2nd, short, 3rd– Oh, wait, he’s just gonna pitch.  Right after he traded him away, Tony La Russa said that Cahill could win the Comeback Player of the Year.  Yeah, Cahill has some great zingers.  Even a Yo Momma joke or two.  *intern whispers in my ear*  I’m told it wasn’t those kind of comebacks.  Yeah, I don’t know what La Russa’s talking about, but after living for three years with unwanted wildlife, you start to lose perspective.

Archie Bradley – Made the rotation in Arizona.  He celebrated at a Tilted Kilt and awkwardly high-fived some white people in downtown Phoenix.  Arizona:  We’re cultured like yogurt.  Person from Arizona, “You’re from Jersey.  Just stop.”  In the top 100 starters, I said this, “I already gave you a Archie Bradley fantasy, but there I didn’t expect him to get a starting job from the rotation.  The rest kinda holds true.  He’s been a flippin’ mess in the minors, but with great opportunity comes great…Someone find a nerd to finish that.  Nerd!  Nerd!  Nerd!  Why did I suddenly become Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds?  I’d take Bradley as a flyer in deeper leagues, but wouldn’t expect anything, but a streamer for now.  2015 Projections:  7-9/3.96/1.42/140″  And that’s me quoting me!

Aaron Hill – Moved to the bench so Chris Owings and Nick Ahmed can start.  In my NL-Only league, I drafted Owings and traded for Ahmed, so now I have too many middle infidels if anyone wants to trade with me.  Hmm, maybe I should’ve wrote that in an email.  Control, alt, ignore!  I like Owings as my rankings and projections showed.  I don’t have huge expectations for Ahmed.  Razzball/Steamer projects him for 3 HRs and 8 SBs in 97 games.  Razzball/Steamer are pretty damn good projections too.  So, even if you give Ahmed 150 games, he’s doing what?  6 HRs and 15 SBs with a .230 average?  If my middle infielder has an illness, I’m not calling the Ahmed.

Yasmany Tomas – I swear there’s news besides the Diamondbacks.  I think.  So, my long-feared presumpatory  (Made Up Word of the Day!) feeling was that Tomas was going to the minors.  I had some delusions of the Diamondbacks realizing that A) They were paying him a lot of money. B) Their fans had two things to look forward to, Yasmany hitting homers and Yasmany looking like a clown in the field.  C) There’s no C.  I guess management didn’t realize how much fun fans would’ve had watching Yasmany being a bull in a china shop trying to get to grounders and demoted him.  In most mixed leagues, I’d move on to someone else and not wait, unless you have an N/A slot, which I believe is literally N/A everywhere but in Yahoo.

Kolten Wong – 0-for-3, run and a steal.  Wong, you dirty bird, you’re not stealing bases, you’re stealing my heart!

Adam Wainwright – 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks vs. the Cubs.  Sell!  Not kidding.  Now that the preseason is over and the Cubs are no longer the World Series favorite, but just a too-young club that strikeouts out way too much, people may think this Wainwright start is more than it is.

Jason Heyward – 3-for-5, 1 run and a steal.  Matt Holliday (2-for-4, 2 RBIs) also stole a base in this game against David Lee Ross as they sang, “I wish they all could all be Jon Lester’s personal catcher.”

Tommy La Stella – 1-for-3 and a steal.  Damn, I almost made him my first batty call of the year yesterday after studying the Hitter-Tron.  On a larger note, La Stella facing righties doesn’t bode well for Alcantara’s playing time.

Jon Lester – 4 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 10 baserunners, 6 Ks.  I always feel like the first start of the year isn’t indicative of anything.  How do you go from spring training to regular season?  You don’t snap your fingers, do you?  No, you don’t!  You get on the rubber, grind your balls with rosin and work it!  Hmm, that sounds weird.

Alex Cobb – Played catch.  That’s heartwarming!

Dellin Betances – Girardi announced that Betances and Andrew Miller would share the closer job.  Looks like maybe the ‘pert who drafted Betances right after I drafted Aroldis in the fifth in my Tout Wars draft might’ve reached just a tad.  I also mentioned last week how Betances’s velocity was way down in the spring which drew a chorus of, “It’s like that every year.”  Yeah, and in no other year was he tagged to be a closer.  Oopsie-poopsie!  I would own Miller in every league because he’s got the stuff to take the job and run with it.  Well, throw with it.  Meh, you get the idea!

Drew Smyly – Threw live batting practice.  Glad his vitals are fine!

Micah Johnson – Named the White Sox 2nd baseman.  That seemed to be the way the White Sox were leaning, but I still don’t think he plays every day and gets 500+ ABs.  I could be wrong.  *coughs*  Yasmany Tomas ranked too high.  *coughs*  Shut up, Coughy Under-Your-Breath Guy!

Eddie Butler – Won a job in the Rockies rotation.  Maybe that should be won in quotes.  That’s like winning the job to clean up grandma’s bed pan.

Boone Logan – Named the Rockies primary set-up man as Walt Weiss said to Adam Ottavino owners, “And you thought I couldn’t be anymore batshizz crazy.”

Curtis Granderson – Has some right knee swelling, but should be fine for Opening Day.  Just a friendly, Curtis-y update.

Daniel Murphy – Appears ready to begin the season healthy.  I say, good for him!  I said it while histrionically rolling my eyes.

Kevin Gausman – To the bullpen for Ubaldo.  You ever watch extreme sports and think, “Are those guys BASE jumping from just high enough to kill themselves, but not high enough for a parachute to deploy?”  Well, Showalter is that stupid on flat ground.  How do you take one of your top prospects, who already pitched 113 1/3 IP in the majors last year with a 3.57 ERA, and move him to the bullpen for a guy who has a near-5 ERA over the last three years?  Seriously, I’ll wait for an answer.

Rusney Castillo – Optioned to the minors, and lowered in my top 400, not that it matters anymore.  Where did the longest preseason in the history of preseasons go?  I was just getting used to pretending to give my full attention to my Cougar.  Now it’s back to watching baseball and pretending to listen to my Cougar.  The struggle is real.  The Red Sox optioning a guy that was making $72.5 million raised some eyebrows.  I wonder if it raised Sam Donaldson’s eyebrows, because his eyebrows are neat.  They’re like racoons from the 70’s when racoons wore their hair long.  I imagine Castillo will return when Victorino or Hanley get hurt, so in, like two weeks.  For now, you have to gauge the depth of your league and whether you should hold him and wait.  In most leagues, I would wait for a week or two just to see the Red Sox’s intentions.

Joe Kelly – Will start the year on the DL, but it sounds like he’ll be ready in about a week.  MLB teams seem to use the DL as their off-campus bench.  “Guys, we’re low on Gatorade.  Let’s put Koji on the DL.”

Arodys Vizcaino – Suspended 80 games for testing positive for Stanozolol.  He tested positive for a Polish man?

Ervin Santana – Also suspended 80 games for Stanozolol.  More like Stanozolmao.

Justin Verlander – Will start the year on the 15-day DL.  He’ll likely only miss two starts.  You say tomato-I say, “Fifteen less days he’s ruining your delusional thoughts of a bounce back.”

Bruce Rondon – Will start the year on the 15-day DL with discomfort in his biceps and terrifying nightmares of Dr. James Andrews in a hockey mask, standing over his body with a hacksaw.

Coco Crisp – Will miss six to eight weeks after undergoing elbow surgery to have bone chips and spurs removed from his right elbow.  Geez, what’s his elbow like, one of those snow globes with an entire village in there, but he has an Old West town?  Does Al Swearengen run The Gem Saloon in his elbow?  Were the bone chips and the spurs taking ten paces away from each other before they turned and fired?  I got questions, y’all!  With Coco Crisp out to lunch (irony!), Craig Gentry, Sam Fuld and…Wait for it…Here it comes…Ugh, I think I might’ve left it in my car…Hold on…Oh, sweet, someone saw that I left it in the garage and brought it in and put it by my door.  Thanks, neighbors!  Gentry, Fuld and…Billy BurnsBilly Burns from the Land of SAGNOF, Home of the Fleet-Footed.  Between Double and Triple-A and the majors last year, Burns had 57 steals.  Granted, he hit like a combined .220, hitting only .193 in 28 games in Triple-A.  So, uh, yeah, SAGNOF!  If you need steals, I could see grabbing Burns, but he’s prolly just a platoon outfielder for steals at this point.

Josh Hamilton – Won’t be suspended.  Oh my God, new commissioner, Rob Manfred, has total Step Dad Syndrome.  Rob, dude, Selig isn’t gonna swoop in and punish Hamilton just because you don’t want to be the bad guy.  Scioscia’s not gonna send Hamilton to bed without supper.  Rob, bro, if you want the players to respect you, you have to step up and act the part.  Lay down the law, New Dad!  Otherwise, before you know it, players are gonna be running from the plate straight to 2nd base, and just begging you to punish them.

    My league has an N/A slot. So i can place Tomas there and wait. But he doesn’t seem to be great this year. He was my 12th round pick. So I’m very frustrating. Grey, how do you look his trade value? If you were me, try to trade, keep, or whatever with him? :(

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @piranhaman: I’d put him in your N/A and just let him chill for a while. No need to drop him yet if you have that stash option

    • danny almonte says:
      (link)

      @piranhaman: I’d think he has 0 trade value. Maybe your league has a shot if an owner wants to buy low and stash in his N/A.

      I picked Tomas around 150/160 per Grey’s advice and am leaning towards holding but will cut bait if I need to.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @piranhaman: Doesn’t have trade value right now

  2. Sam says:
    (link)

    So should I hold onto Gausman then? Plenty of solid options on waivers (Hammel, Bradley, Petit, Simon, Anderson, Roark, Nelson, Morrow). I’d like to hold onto him but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to snag him back up if/when he hits the rotation. I’m not really hurting on pitching but I’m wondering if I’m being too afraid of missing out on Gausman or not. H2H Roto

    • ben says:
      (link)

      @Sam:

      I’d say he has more value than those guys if/when he gets into the rotation. Even at RP he should help your ratios until then…if it looks like it never happens drop him.

      Bradley a super optimistic flier, Nelson could work out. He’s the only one I’d take for the most likely upside.

      (link)

      @Kiss a Bum: i would think in a league deep enough for hector to have value to you you’d still be able to get more for a closer, it’s not like gregerson is last year’s nathan either. If yr opp doesn’t believe he’s likely to stay closer long just wait a little while. closers should have more trade value than a dude who has no job security at all like odrubel.

  5. Ante GALIC says:

    Grey!!!

    It’s finally here! Can’t believe it. Fantastic information and thoughtful analysis.

    a. What’s the over/under for the combined Torres Bros (Alex and Carlos, wait? they’re not actually brothers? Sry.)WHIP in the Mets Bullpen?

    b. Man, how lucky can one Melvin Upton Jr. be? Actually, that trade has two parts.

    i. BigUp was dumped to SD and will have 0 playing time, after he returns from the DL. Reading between the lines the Braves dumped him on the Pads front porch like a small turd sandwich who will be competing against him for playing time when he returns from the DL.

    ii. How bad is Quentin? How about worse than how little the Pads and Braves want him on their roster.

    iii. Quentin should be traded around from team to team that’s facing Greinke and play only against Greinke like Ross only catches Lester.

    Week 2 (already rosterbating) is a short week.

    Cheers,

    I love how all the ‘perts pick the Red Sox to win the East or even a Wild Card because “they have so much depth. They have so many players they can trade to improve their team.” funny because that’s the same song they sang all last year too when they lost 93 games. today is Opening Day and the only trades they’ve made are for backup catcher replacements. they still have like 8 outfielders, 6 third basemen, and no pitchers.

    • JoeC says:
      (link)

      @Miles: I think the assumption, which I agree with, is that the BoSox will simply outscore people.

      Pitchers? They don’t need no stinkin’ pitchers!

      PS: Not a homer pick as I loathe the Red Sox.

        @Grey:

        Whose rotation is worse than the Red Sox right now? The dbacks, maybe? Anyone else?

        They need healthy Hanley, and Pablo Betts AND Bogaerts o pan out, Pedroia to return to form AND Ortiz to not age.

        And that’s just to win games 10-8. If that doesn’t work out, they’re gonna lose a LOT of 8-3 games

      @Miles: And *that* is what we call reality agreeing with a prediction!

      Alright, alright, I’ll put away the champagne, as it’s only one game, but this is the blueprint. Lean on a revitalized Buchholz and Masterson, and a good-enough Porcello, and hope for the best from Joe Kelly. And then just inundate the opposition with runs.

      Will it be successful? Really depends on the health of HRam and Pedroia. If they stay on the field, this is at least a playoff team, if not outright division winner.

    SS Ian Desmond
    OF Kole Calhoun
    OF J.D. Martinez

    Relief: Steve Cishek, Tyler Clippard, Joe Nathan, Wade Davis, Brad Boxberger
    DL Sean Doolittle
    NA Danny Salazar

    Should I be worried about the news that Peavy may lose starts to Ryan Vogelsong? Also should I replace Wade Davis with another starter and should I add Jedd Gyorko over one of my bats?

    Interesting guys on the wire: TJ House, Shane Greene, Andrew Heaney, J.A. Happ, Daniel Norris, Wade Miley, Jimmy Nelson, Jeremy Hellickson, Brandon Morrow, Dan Straily, Dan Haren, Matt Garza, Rubby De La Rosa

    Thanks again and sorry for the long post!

    • ben says:
      (link)

      @Kevmeister:
      might want to focus on WHIP at the bottom on your rotation based on your staff, in which case holding davis for that help might be smart. Carlos Martinez is a tough short term keep (also a high WHIP risk) but if you like him to eventually start it may work out.

      • Kevmeister says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Heaney as a stream correct? I think he’s only up for one start before RIchards comes back

        @ben: Yep, WHIP is my pitching Achilles’s heel. Is CMart going back to the bullpen when Garcia comes back? I thought he won the 5th spot.

        Thanks for the responses, guys!

    Since the cubs were able to score any runs yesterday do you think they’ll call up Kris Bryant today? Ha ha!

    • JoeC says:
      (link)

      @Grays Sports Almanac: Certainly looks like they could’ve used Bryant’s bat in that lineup.

      That ump had a wide zone though, so probably wouldn’t have made too much of a difference.

    • Grindrguy says:
      (link)

      @Grays Sports Almanac: When your Opening Day lineup features Dexter Fowler, Mike Olt, David Ross, Chris Coghlan, Tommy LaStella and the pitcher spot batting, you’re gonna get shut out… a lot. I understand that Krus Bryant makes them better, but still… That’s a 70 win team right there.

      • JoeC says:
        (link)

        @Grindrguy: The question is: when does Cubs management see that? Otherwise, I agree: it’s a sub-.500 team.

    Hey Grey,

    I know you’re big on Rendon, and I was until his injury too, but at this point, how much should I be willing to give up to acquire him? It’s a 10-team H2H and we get to keep 10 each year (at no cost). Should Rendon be treated like a top-25 player?

    What up, Grey?
    We made it. Longest spring training ever.

    I’m tryna stockpile MI, left myself short at the draft. I’m deciding between two guys, La Stella, and Aaron Hill(just dropped).
    Hill is intriguing because teams are calling about him and I would be buying the chance he gets a full time gig somehwere. La Stella I liked back in his Atlanta days and if he plays against righties he obviously could have some value. Thoughts?

    • CMUTimmah says:
      (link)

      @Phil of the Future: Hard to hang onto a guy without a job. La Stella has just as much of a shot to win the majority of playing time in Chicago as Hill has a shot finding a job elsewhere… Are there any teams out there with 2nd basemen that you’re certain Hill is better than all around? Any you might name are young and cheap, so probably would win the job via smaller pay check.

      La Stella is probably the guy to look to.

      • Phil of the Future says:
        (link)

        @CMUTimmah: I’m thinking he ends up on the Angels. But it’s a gamble. La Stella probably gets picked up tonight. As does Hill. It’s a deep 16 teamer and everyone fights over MI guys

      @Lville Jim: Don’t bet against Benoit being flipped to Toronto, Wash., Det./// Pads have several set up guys. They owe Benoit $7.5 mil. Team has acted as they’re the Dodgers. Good for them, but I can see them trading Benoit for a couple of prospects since they’ve given up all of their prospects.

    2-5, 1 run, 1 rbi, 0 respect. Matt Carpenter is boring but the guy who will win you your league.

    I was next to the snake in my draft and screwed my selection order up and selected Danny Santana where I meant to take Benoit. Of course, the team on the snake took Benoit. I was so PO’d at myself. Breaks like that are needed. Much obliged, Braves.

    Is Coco Crisp worth picking up in a 12 team roto league? I’ve got the following at SP and bench bats I could find someone to drop for him but I’m not sure he’s worth the add given my guys:

    SP: Scherzer, Arrieta, Carrasco, Liriano, Peavy, Hutchison, Paxton, Burnett, Eovaldi
    Util: W. Myers, K. Davis, Gennett, Gregory Polanco, Saunders

      @Clint: He’s out 6-8 weeks. Don’t see how he’s worth the add right now, period.

    • Joe says:
      (link)

      @Clint: I don’t know your league at all, but I think you might be able to drop saunders, eovaldi or burnett, pick coco up, throw him on your DL, and then re-add whoever you dropped. but there’s always the risk. I would probably be most willing to roll the dice with eovaldi or burnett.

      With that said, I’m not sure a healthy coco is an upgrade on your bench. But I always like to stash DL guys and then drop them if I need the space for a player I actually care about.

      • Bull in a Chinese Restaurant says:
        (link)

        @Joe: he’d have to have 2 DL spots to drop saunders and stash both anyway.

    12 team keeper – 6 kept, 3 minor league slots.

    I kept Abreu and Rendon in the minor leagues (along with the bane of my existence Jurrickson Profar, so sad) last year with the full intention of running away with it this year.

    Kind of a weird league… 15×15 categories. So, I punt OF assists and Saves (overpriced) in the draft every year. Yes, I said Outfield Assists. Again, it’s 15×15. It’s silly, but still pretty intriguing. I use my RP slots to nab the best setup guys (holds) and K/9 guys in the league. We drafted Friday, after Betances was giving the Committee curse, so I got him at a value spot.

    Called up Rendon and Abreu, Kept Stanton, Tulo, Waino, Sale, Hamels, and Zimmermann:

    C Yan Gomes
    1B Jose Abreu
    2B Kolton Wong
    SS Troy Tulowitzki
    3B Anthony Rendon
    OF Mike Stanton
    OF Corey Dickerson
    OF Danny Santana
    UTIL Albert Pujols
    BN Josh Harrison
    BN Matt Carpenter
    BN Souza

    SP Jordan Zimmermann
    SP Cole Hamels
    SP Jake Arrieta
    SP Phil Hughes
    SP Drew Hutchinson
    SP Drew Pomeranz
    SP Kyle Lohse
    SP Tim Hudson
    SP Jesse Hahn
    RP Wade Davis
    RP Dellin Betances
    RP Tyler Clippard

    DL Stash – Kris Medlen. We have 3 DL spots, I stashed him and slid Rendon and Sale into the other two to pick up Vogt and Souza. They give me some added flexibility.

    • CMUTimmah says:
      (link)

      @CMUTimmah: Oh and my new Minor leaguers are Joc Pederson, Olivera, and Correa. Olivera is probably a weak choice in hind sight, but I like the idea of someone coming in and producing right away for the second spot since I’ll be waiting a couple years for Correa.

    • Joe says:
      (link)

      @Robert: Considering two current closers are sitting on your wire, albeit shitty closers, not sure you need to speculate on saves. If you want saves, i would pick up Nathan and Soria. At that point, you own the Tigers’ closer regardless of when Nathan loses the job. If you simply want the best pitcher, benoit is probably the best bet, but he has no chance at saves unless kimbrell gets hurt. Soria is the next best pitcher, but he at least has a route to save opps because nathan throws like a girl.

    Swearengen high five, or double tabacco shot into the spitoon.

    So there I was having a nice Italian Easter dinner, when my phone lit up with Kimbrel craziness. But not being rude or face the wrath of my wife, it was her family after all, I could not act. The law firm of Grilli and Johnson were snatched up, but good riddance. Hope there’s implosions of epic proportions. My relief corp is down to Britton and Soria as we begin live shenanigans, though. I have a couple of trade offers out there, but I have a spot open (McGee to the DL) and actually thinking about Juan Jaime, who did close in the minors. I guess it’s worth a shot for now, but you see anyone else stepping up there?

    On the same note, would you trade Price for Arenado and Perkins?

    • Baron Von Vulturewins

      Baron Von Vulturewins says:
      (link)

      @Pouss-Pouss: I think the outward indications in question are that he had off-season elbow surgery number two, his velocity is down, and his K/9 last year *pre-surgery* was 7.1, a 5-year low. One start against a hack-happy Cubs lineup should not restore your confidence that he’s returned to being a flamethrower.

      HOWEVER you are correct in that he has name value, ergo trade value, so when/if he does start wobbling, please pawn him off quickly on someone who doesn’t read this site.

        @Baron Von Vulturewins: when he’s not tired he’s still great, and he wasn’t tired last night. his K’s aren’t gonna be great. If you can trade at name value i’d do that as soon as possible, and by that i mean DON’T wait till there are ANY signs of him being hurt or tired.

    Was Sam Donaldson actually the inspiration for Sam the Eagle on The Muppets, or is that just a coincidence? Enquiring minds want to know, y’all!

    Also, if I’m stuck with either taking a flyer on the Grilli man or a guy like LaTroy, what should I do? Who gets more saves while not entirely killing my other stats?

    So what if Tomas starts in the minors? Are you advising that we drop him in keeper leagues as well? I think he just needs more at bats against MLB pitchers. The kid will be fine and I don’t want to be the guy that dropped a thumper because of a very small sample size of at bats.

    Hi Grey,

    In a 12-team keep 8 forever head-to-head league with standard 5X5 categories.

    C – Yadier Molina
    1B – A. Rizzo
    2B – B. Dozier
    3B – N. Arenado
    SS – D. Santana
    OF – A. Gordon
    OF – M. Ozuna
    OF – W. Myers
    Util – T. Frazier
    Util – J. Werth
    Bench – J. Baez
    NA – B. Buxton

    SP: Price, Teheran, deGrom, Smyly, Paxton, Eovaldi, Corbin (stash once Smyly is back), Hahn and two streamers (currently CJ Wilson and Haren).

    Can I get your thoughts on trading Teheran for Soler straight up? Only planning on keeping Price as a pitcher, but maybe deGrom as well, so feel Teheran is expendable and I like him a lot less now that Kimbrel won’t be there to lock down 2-1 victories for him.

    Thanks!

    Juan Jaime is Spanish for John James right? And the Braves supposedly have Jim Johnson on their roster? I suspect that they are the same guy and Juan Jaime is Johnson’s Zorro-esque Mexican alter ego. After the booing he took last year he’s pitching in disguise.

    When did the Padres become the Yankees and the Yankees become the Padres? Is it because of Chase Headley, somehow?

    Spidersense says the Tigers give Phil Hughes an awful beating today.

    Luis Valbuena does in fact hit 3rd for the Astros.

    David Wright, Carlos Gonzalez and George Spinger all hitting out of the two hole.

    Flaherty gets the start ahead of Cabrera.

      Who are some guys I should look at as alternatives now that he’s not going to be giving me much of [email protected]Nick: Also, should note that all options already mentioned in this thread: Grilli, Nathan, Jenrry, Mejia, etc are scooped up already.

          @Nick: Ehhh, I’d personally rather not do that but I guess it’s fair enough if you’re jonesing for a closer that badly. Idk what your team looks like.

    Napoli, Mauer, Lind.

    Bautista just made a nice leaping grab at the wall to rob Gardner of extra bases. Reyes flailed weakly at a Tanaka splitter in the dirt for strike three. Feels good to have baseball back.

    And JD just went deep. He looks locked in already.

          @Big Magoo: I think some didnt factor the risk in reaching for him and those that are over zealous might be the ones looking smart at the end. Those same people probably made a lot of reaches…I guess what I’m saying is the universe has a way of balancing itself out

    Oh Grey White South, how do I look for an RCL. I usually dominate the H2H autodrafters over at Yahoo, but have decided to step up to the Roto world of Razzers. I don’t have much roto strategy in my pocket, but am not rxactly a noob either. More of a moob.

    Unirregardlessly, I am concerned with the back end of my sarting pitching and my pen. Do I need Gallardo, or stram the B? Will I reach my 180 starts with six guys? Do I need Romo? I have him as insurance for Casilla,but also some category help. Are two versatile bench bats too many? Am I too old to watch Dr. Who?

    • Grey

      I don’t like Weaver, Yovani, Romo… Basically what you said… Nice team otherwise

      • Great White North says:

        @Grey: Hmm. I have Weaver on all my teams, but have picked him up at value. Grabbed him in round 19 at #224 in my RCL. You have him ranked #163. Maybe I trade him (big)if he has a few solid games in a row. Should I have thought more about upside in round 19 or held my nose and taken the best available to round out a SP staff?

      • royce! says:
        (link)

        @JeF With 1 F: Yep, seems like it. After a couple of good innings in which he relied on off-speed stuff, TOR just started teeing off on him and taking low pitches, rightfully expecting that they would drop out of the zone. Fortunately, I only paid $6 in my 12 team and drafted him in the 15th round elsewhere.

        • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
          (link)

          @royce!: you could’ve had healthy pitchers in 15th round though. i would’ve hoped you only grabbed him in that league where you went old all over on purpose, since he’ll play as if he’s old till he gets his injured arm fixed.

    My loins are tingling….either it’s fantasy baseball season or I’m looking at those Verlander/Upton photos the wrong way. Two quick questions for you:

    1) I just picked Johnathan Broxton off waivers in a 16 team league that counts holds. Do you think I should ditch him for Roberto Osuna? From what I’m hearing, this kid has the stuff to be a top of the rotation arm and I figure he’ll be in the picture for holds in Toronto.
    2) Since I believe in taking the best bat available in the first round, I’m in a bit of a pickle when Bryant comes up (keeper league). I currently have E-squared (1st round), Nolan Arenando (4th round keeper), and Anthony Rizzo (18th round keeper). Who would you try to move out of the three and what would you want back in return?

    • Grey

    @mlbbowman · 8m 8 minutes ago
    Fredi says Maybin will see some time vs. left-handed starters and be used as a late-inning def. replacement, which would shift EY to left

    • GhostTownSteve says:
      (link)

      @Charlie:

      Per Freddi EYJ is “off the charts character guy.” They’re going to give him a chance to stick. What has Maybin really done that he deserves to be a plug in starter anyway?

        Sky says:

        I think the big thing people are missing: Gomes is set to be the every day LF right now. Quentin is gonna be DFA’d. Even if they move EYJ to left, he’s still gonna get valuable at bats getting the best of the platoon.

  113. So am I allowed to ruthlessly mock anyone who drafted Tanaka?

      @Elijah: i’ve been for at least 6 weeks. i thought everyone was. he needs TJ, it’s not a secret for those that read about baseball players. actually, this goes back to when he got injured. so more like over 6 months. People drafting with something other than reason own Tanaka.

        @Grey: Yeah . It was both awesome and sad to have the first pick in the rcl the other night. I mean I HAD to take Trout (never owned him – and he’s awesome), so had to leave Giancarlo in the hands of others. Like Carlos Santana (who I also passed over), he’s been a perennial on my team since I’ve been doing Fantasy Baseball.

    dynasty. if i want to bid and win 3 of these in (in this order) FAAB ($100 for entire year): bundy/dahl/stephenson/sano/bell/winker/a-jax (Sea)/schwarber/crawford/peraza/frazier/judge. i have them in that order from my roster’s makeup. might even move sano down more. I’m gonna go with highest bid on bundy and then smaller. What should Bundy’s bid be? This is yahoo so i can bid 0 on guys (i.e. it’s not awful if i spend almost all of my money on these three guys). I’m hoping i can sneak kela/osuna/castro by these guys here, as i am weak in RP. My roster is so good i simply don’t expect needing much waiver budget on active MLB players over season.

    • GhostTownSteve says:

      @mauledbypandas:

      Seriously, bud. This is like a week’s worth of homers from last year. I’ve always contended that part of the so-called PED era was juiced balls. It was a clear effort to revive interest post-strike. There were lots of old timer who weighed in on the lively ball and then got hushed up. I’ve always contended there’s a reason why the ball for the great American pastime isn’t made in America. By the way, there is no regulation for elasticity of the ball. As far as I know MLB is within the framework of their own rule set to manipulate the ball. Just a PR thing to be perceived as messing with the game.

    anybody know why OBP wolf is gonna miss the first day?

    dynasty league where i got lucky getting bogaerts/polanco to go along with what was already a top offense. I now have 3 BN bats (with Braun’s injury probably two, moving polanco to starting RF), including m.carpenter. panda starts at 3B. which of these deals should i do, as i am very weak at RP, having only ottavino/kenley (DL)/rondon, and currently leaving pomeranz in one of those slots (might drop him for actual RP).
    1. my panda for kimbrel
    2. my carp for one of wade/a.miller (ace 8th inning guys)
    3. my carp for a medium level closer, like britton
    I could probably get carpenter for a crappy/older closer but that seems simply stupid.

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: Kershaw really likes Ellis…the Dodgers went out of their way to announce that Eliis is not going to be his personal catcher, but I think Ellis will start most of Kershaw’s starts.

      I’d do 1 or 3.

        @royce!: sorry, this is holds and saves league. i should’ve mentioned that, i would think wade/a.miller worth quite a bit more than any old closer in that.

        @Grey: Apparently he was having elbow soreness before the game, and when he warmed up for the 9th he felt more pain and went to the clubhouse. They didn’t know he wouldn’t be able to pitch or else I assume Familia would’ve been the guy. Elbow doesn’t sound good… Who are we grabbing? Familia?

        @Grey:

        If by hurt you mean “awful.” Anyway, I think he’s decent but he was horrendous in spring. So bad he cut off all his hair. Maybe he’ll go on the DL with a hair injury. Jenry Mejia’s hair played catch from 40 feet on flat ground.

    a) Drop 1 to stream – if so, who
    b) Hold & hope for the best
    c) Uhhh, do I have to really say it…there is no c

    12 team H2H Keeper Auction League. $300 salary

    I need some pitching after losing Stroman and Santana and Cobb for the start of the season(possibly longer). I already traded away a few big prospects to get tyson ross and Carrasco, so I am already all in

    I really like Shane Greene(think he has potential to be this years Kluber, well maybe not quite).

    I give up Salvador Perez($7) and Dalton Pompey(rookie) for Shane Greene($7) and Montero($6). Basically once you activate a rookie like pompey you can keep him for $5 for first year/ $10 for second year and $25 for third. It’s essentially what I could keep Green for this year, then Greene gets a bit more expensive(few dollars each year). You can only keep players for 3 years. I am a bit thin on offence but should be ok once Saunders is back. Am I giving up too much?

      @Hal Incandenza: I guess the unspoken intro is that I’m looking for some feedback, Grey (and whoever else has an opinion). Thanks!

      You can find setup men on waivers… Team looks a little light on power, though you had a huge day today… I like the pitching, but seem light on SPs

      • Hal Incandenza says:

        @Grey: And power is key with OPS being an additional factor. I also should have mentioned only 9 bats are active.

        Thanks!

  189. OK shelled out for the MLB.tv premium on Grey’s recommendation! I tried it a few years ago on the PC but wasn’t totally impressed with the quality, but this looks great so far on the Roku. The bad news… I can’t watch the Dbacks. The good news, I can’t watch the Dbacks.

    I just accepted a deal sending away MadBum for Pence/Wood/Latos. 10 team ESPN league using QS in place of W and OBP over BA. Leaves my staff with Kluber Teheran Tanaka Wood Latos Fiers Shoemaker and JoFer in June-ish. Once Pence returns I would have option of Choo Napoli Gyorko Revere as utility. 1350 IP limit. I accepted deal after SF game got underway to somewhat offset Pence missed time, however minimal. Did I get enough?

      @Mike B:
      nope

      • Mike B says:

        @FrankGrimes: is there a particular guy in the return who you’re down on, or just high on Bum(sounds funny)?

        The Pence injury is worrisome but I really don’t like Bum’s workload last year. I didn’t draft him, he fell into my lap in a trade. It’s a keeper league and I had acquired 3 keepers in offseason leaving my talent a bit shallow. All players involved have minimal keeper value, with Wood having most potential as 8th round pick.

          @Mike B:
          the work load stuff is meh
          he is top five pitcher
          imo get top five bat in return

          • Mike B says:

            @FrankGrimes: Goldy/Miggy don’t get moved for the likes of a MadBum in this league.

    12 team h2h points keeper

    Offer in of my Cole Hamels and avasail Garcia (16 rd keeper) for his jake Arrieta and zach Britton.

    Closers are Rondon and Cody Allen but we have a utility p slot.
    Starters are scherzer , Hamels, Richards, iwakuma, Carlos Martinez, and Jesse Hahn.

    Thanks!

    Maybin or EY2 in an NL only league?

    • Flowers misses his old glasses... he's ok tho says:

      @Schmohawks Bob: depth charts don’t say it yet, but word around here seems to favor maybin stealing that job. problem is (as i’m sure you know) in NL only you really have to gamble on that decision earlier rather than let somebody else make the choice.

    kris bryant and jeff samardzija for strasburg and kimbrel qich side?

    • Bye Felicia says:

      @tony: depending on what other pitching you have. it’s hard to say without league size, league type, and your roster. . These things are important

  196. Familia, aisle 5….special on closers, aisle 5. Down goes Mejia with the elbow MRI

    you’ll get 1 week out of Familia at least. Probably more from the sound of it.
    And Parnell supposed to be in a setup role when he comes back….

    I lost a closer in Beloit yesterday and gained Familia & Grilli.

    Yep….must be baseball season. Crazy f-n start.

      @Lucky Dog: I think Parnell takes it back. I’m not that high on Familia closing. Is Vic Black still in town. I’m too lazy to look

        @J-FOH: DL, coming back soon for vic, his stock should certainly go up now.

    Too sore over Wisco BBall to have enjoyed opening day the way I should, but had Cargo, Tulo, and Arenado in my Big money league. Not a bad start, also NFBC 1,2 and 3 picks homered, so cant be all bad.

    Bottom line is baseball has arrived.

    Hey Grey et al,

    somebody just dropped Paxton.
    Should I drop EOVALDI, D.NORRIS or S.MILLER to grab him?

    Thanks

    • Bull in a Chinese Restaurant says:
      (link)

      @JJ: same thing happened in my main money league team about 5 days ago. i have no idea what’s going on. since none of these 4 guys are hurt i’ll just assume Grey’s ranks haven’t changed for them and it’ll be norris is the drop.

    Hi Mr. Grey,
    Very tight 10 Team NL only (5X5) Roto (Whisper: Chris Hatcher is on the waiver wire…I want…need the SAGNOF!!! He is just sitting there after last night and no one is biting…Its worst than a tease! My baseball sense says I can’t do anything without paying for it down the road…How can I get him on my team?)

    Once again, thanks for your patience…
