Roofies are real and they are not good. When you wake up after five hours and you’re missing a kidney? That’s a roofie. They’re a rookie pitcher who just decimates your ratios and leaves you wandering around for a light switch, only to realize you no longer have an arm. Though, you do have a hand, which is just puzzling. Yo, you T-Rex? With that said, rookie pitcher phenom Logan Gilbert is coming up. Prospect Itch just gave you the skinny, “If you’re going to hold one pitching prospect hoping he might come up and help your club, Gilbert should be that gottfried. He’s got a big league starter’s pitch mix and command, and he’ll be coming up to a hot club with pretty strong defense in a nice pitcher’s park. Speaking of which, I’d like to park my Subaru on Grey.” Okay, not sure what that’s about. I don’t say this lightly, but Logan Gilbert could win the AL ROY. Will he? What, I should sell my soul for future advice about a stupid MLB award? Get out of here! You sell your soul if you want to know! I’m just saying Gilbert’s plus command and strikeout ability makes him a must grab. I did in my RCL, and I would do it again! Though, I’m only in one RCL, so not sure how I can do it again. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Khalil Lee – Was called up by the Mets, as he sits on the bench. Here’s what I said previously, “Okay, so Khalil Lee’s minor league stats are some of the more humorous I’ve seen:  8/53 with a 28.2% strikeout rate in Double-A. Yo, who’s his batting coach, Billy Hamilton? Not even Quay Hugebottom could fix that, yet — again with some stank — YET! Speed plays. If you need SAGNOF, I could see grabbing him. If you want a professional opinion, Prospect Itch said, “Lee has taken tremendously well to plate patience and base-stealing, but his swing mechanics and contact skills need work and reps. He’s likely to get these reps at the big league level soon, where he could be a stolen base boon in OBP leagues with little to offer in standard 5×5 for his first few seasons. Anyway, who wants to punch Grey in the face?” And that’s me quoting me quoting Itch! Khalil might also be in this Friday’s Buy/Sell, if he ever gets playing time, and the Buy/Sell is already up at our Patreon.

Taijuan Walker – 7 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.20. Real question: Is it possible to find bad pitchers? Streamonator answers that with a resounding yes for Walker’s next start. Honestly, though, Walker’s a bit more than a streamer. His career ERA is 3.75 in over 600 career innings. Okay, maybe a streamer in very shallow leagues.

Matt Harvey – 4 1/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 4.81, as he returned to CitiField. Wasn’t quite the homecoming Harvey expected. David Wright’s wife wouldn’t even sleep with him. Sad emoji.

Mike Moustakas – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 4th homer. Moistasskiss!

Sonny Gray – 4 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.55. Love me some long man out of the bullpen as much as the next guy, but what is an 87-pitch four and two-thirds start? An amuse bouche? Well, I ain’t amused.

Nico Hoerner – Expected to be activated on Friday. I’m feeling Hoerner-y. Yay baby! (Very new reference.)

James Kaprielian – 5 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, as he was called up. James Kapriellian is also the answer to the trivia question, “This Sunday in FAAB when everyone else spends nutbags on the Mariners’ prospects, who are the cheapskates getting?” A’la Kanye, “Let’s here it for the cheapskates! Let’s here it for the ones not spending nutbags!” The last big Kaprielian update on Razzball was by Prospector Ralph, before he was Geoff, he said Kaprielian’s ETA was 2019, so, yeah, things got pretty sidetracked. His injuries were like where the chair lift is installed in nursing homes, derailing. For now in most leagues, he’s a streamer, and in AL-Only, you do what you have to do.

Matt Olson – 1-for-4 and his 8th homer. Allahson needed help from some higher power to homer yesterday, because…Were there other homers? Can we liven the ball up a little? Asking for interest in baseball.

Yu Darvish – 4 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 2.08. Mentioned this before but the 7-inning games play havoc on how long the manager leaves the starter in. Managers have in the back of their mind they only need three innings from the pen, so pull them after four. Especially stupid when you consider they have their ace and another whole game to play after this one.

Victor Caratini – 2-for-3, 5 RBIs and his 3rd homer, a grand slam. *pours vodka into Big Gulp, stirs with carrot* Ah, yes, Caratini.

Blake Snell – 4 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 4.19. Was feeling really good about Snell this year. In San Diego, beautiful weather, great team, mascot is a chicken. What could go wrong? I will now pull out my list of 270 things wrong with Blake Snell. What on earth with that command, brah? A 6.3 BB/9? Yo, Robbie Ray called and he wants his earth skin back! Wonder if it’s a mechanics thing, because it seems like he’s just not locating his fastball, so he’s relying on his slider. It’s not working. He could fix this, because other components seem normal-ish, but when does that happen? Seriously, I’m asking.

Jon Gray – 5 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.93. Picked up Jon Gray a few weeks ago in a 15-team mixer and have been starting him every time out, rain/shine, away/Coors and so far, well, if I continue this sentence rather than trail off I will have jinxed myself…

Mike Soroka – Had a setback on his Achilles, and will have exploratory surgery to see if they can find the issue. Soroka’s having more Achilles issues than Achilles. Hopefully, performing the surgery is Dr. Kiedis, and it’s just scar tissue.

William Contreras – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer. The dropping of Tyler Stephenson and the picking up of William Contreras was my best move in one league. Yeah, it’s a deep league, and I haven’t made many great pickups. So what’s your point?

Teoscar Hernandez – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 4th and 5th homer, hitting .293. Actually hasn’t been bad at all, since he missed around two weeks with Covid, unlike Lourdes Gurriel (0-for-4) who you just hope isn’t viral. “Hey, Lourdes, you don’t sit next to Vlad Jr. Your seat is by Fetid, the grounds crew guy with the blisters.”

Didi Gregorius – Left the game with elbow stiffness. Usually wouldn’t be a concern, but is that the same elbow he had Tommy John surgery on? I don’t know, didn’t do the operation.

Odubel Herrera – 2-for-5 and his 2nd homer, which came off Hand. If there was any justice, that Hand would’ve hit Odubel.

Kyle Schwarber – 0-for-4, hitting .189. Would legitimately be interested in seeing if he could hit a ball off a tee.

Starlin Castro – 4-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI, hitting .300. Between him, Schwarber and Josh Harrison, Nats are rocking a lineup full of guys like this: He’s only how old? Wow, I thought he was much older.

Kyle Tucker – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, and third homer in four games. Get your hands inside, the Buy Low window’s about to close.

Jose Altuve – 1-for-5 and his 4th homer, hitting .286. Elias Sports Bureau said the bat Franmil uses is longer than Altuve.

Yuli Gurriel – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .333, and 2nd homer in as many games. I save the schmotatoes for guys who are under 50% rostered, and I can’t get a sense of Gurriel. Sometimes I get questions where they’re like Gurriel or Chapman, and other times I get questions like Gurriel or Carlos Santana, and those are in no way entirely the same.

Yordan Alvarez – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 7th homer, hitting .347. Captain Woo Cubano is often imitated, but never duplicated, but his combination of power and average, does remind me of Big Papi.

Jose Urquidy – 3 2/3 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 3.22, but left the game with a posterior shoulder injury. His velocity went from 94 MPH to 89 MPH. 1 MPH drop is a warning sign; a 5 MPH drop is, “Do you have a ride to Dr. James Andrews’s office or do you want us to pay for your Uber?” Pretty nice of the Astros to find him some transpo.

Andrew Heaney – 5 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 4.75. To put it bluntly, I wouldn’t have drafted Heaney, and have no interest in him. He’s always wildly overrated.

Yasmani Grandal – 1-for-3, 3 runs, and his 4th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games. Yassssssssssmani!

Andrew Vaughn – 1-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and a homer. He’s struggled a bit, but he’s hitting .260 and playing every day now, so guess how many homers he has. Go ahead! Bzzt, wrongo! That was his first home run.

Billy Hamilton – 4-for-4, 3 runs, 1 RBI and his 4th steal, and a home run short of the cycle. Usually when one says “career game,” they mean a guy having the best game of his career, but, in Billy Hamilton’s case, this was a game where he accumulated all his career stats.

Dallas Keuchel – 5 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.53 vs. J.A. Happ – 3 1/3 IP, 9 ER, ERA at 4.26. The Regression Fairies have some things to say about your brown dress shoes and they will crush your ratios!

Nelson Cruz – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 9th homer, hitting .303. Coincidentally, nine is also how many normal-sized birthday cakes he needs to fit all the candles on his birthday.

Tyler O’Neill – 1-for-3 and his 7th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games. Hot schmotato alert!

John Gant – 5 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.83. Okay, this post is going on 3000 words, so I’m gonna do a real quick Gant check-in. *looks at his Statcast page* That’s a woof from me, dawg.

Casey Mize – 6 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.19. Nearly streamed him (not sure what the Streamonator said, I was free-balling), but then I looked at Mize’s peripherals (so, not free-balling in the traditional sense) and yikes. I thought he was supposed to be a top pitching prospect. Mize does not make me smize, i.e., smile with my eyes, trademark Tyra Banks, ANTM 2003-2019. Not saying America’s Next Top Model ended in 2019, I’m saying I stopped watching after 16 years. Kinda got the gist by then.

Danny Duffy – 6 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 1.94. Member for a minute people were talking about how Danny Duffy became an ace? Not an Urban Dictionary minute, an actual minute. They should’ve talked about it more. His peripherals look great (10.4 K/9, 2.6 BB/9, 2.29 FIP), and I’d buy that for a dollar.

Zac Gallen – Hit the IL with a minor sprain of one section of his UCL in his right elbow. Oh, is that all? “Hello, this is Dr. James Andrews’s office. If you’d like to buy the doctor a Ferrari, press one. If you’d like to buy him a Maserati, press two. If you’d like to buy him a ten-day vacation on Epstein’s island, press three…” Diamondbacks are saying they’re going to give Gallen a few weeks off and test him again, which is a waste of time. They should just escort him to Dr. James Andrews’s office.

Christian Walker – Hit the IL with oblique soreness. At least that’s recoverable. Only problem is no one has any idea how long.

Jesus Aguilar – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer, and 17th homer in the last week. Find a hotter hitter; I’ll wait. I won’t wait. I thought the Marlins only signed Jesus because they figured Miami would be underwater soon, and their only hope was getting guys who could walk on water.

Cody Poteet – 5 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks in his major league debut. Marlins are so good at developing pitchers now they’re just making up guys. Don Mattingly running his finger down the phone book, “…and our starter is…Cody Poteet. See if we can get him in from Hialeah.” So, I watched Pooty Tang, and, it looked a bit like hitters were in a Home Run Derby but weren’t sure of it at first.

Gerrit Cole – 8 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 1.37. I worry the bravery it took me to call Gerrit Cole a schmohawk is supplanted by me looking like a ding dong.

Gleyber Torres – Was out of the starting lineup due to caution, while the Yankees awaited his Covid test results. Yankees are up to seven people who were vaxxed and now have Covid. Was the nurse who administered the Yankees’ vax by any chance wearing a Red Sox cap?

I’m interested in seeing how he adjusts. His stuff is great – he’s just catching too much plate when he’s ahead in the count. I’d like to see him waste a pitch tryina get a swing & a miss when he has 1-2 balls to play with.

Yeah – he’s shown a nasty 95 mph heater & a nice curve. He’s had a couple guys in 1-2 & 0-2 counts. He looks like he’s got the stuff to put them away.

The HR was bad location. The single after that was getting too cute & throwing to the same spot that he got a strike with earlier in the AB.

Gilbert looks better than the 0-2 score results.

Hello Grey,
So I have a trade offer in our Yahoo 12 Team H2H 6×6 League with Holds and OPS:

I get Judge and P. Corbin

I give K. Tucker and Minter (piece of shite!)

I am sure he is playing on my partiality to the Yankees and the fact that Corbin actually pitched well today.

What do you think? And I know you have no idea what our teams look like, but perhaps in a vacuum?

Thanks much Grey.

Would you deal Muncy for Plesac if you also have Moustakas and (potentially Brujan) as 2B options? Alternatively, I could try to deal Muncy plus Ryu (and even Verdugo or Reyes) to obtain a higher quality pitcher like Woodruff or Darvish. My pitching has been strong so far (Buehler, Ryu, Means, McCullers, Jr and P. Lopez) but I am a bit concerned at it holding up over the long haul. Conversely, I have a logjam of hitters with Moustakas, Munchy, Verdugo, Reyes, Ohtani and Chapman generally rotating through 2-3 lineup spots.

Thanks!

First question, what do you think about the offer? I feel like I should counter but obviously I am going to have to clear room when everyone comes off of the IL also.
Second question, who are the drops when that happens?

Hey Grey hope you’re doing well…. points league 12 teamer. hold on to Heaney or take a chance on Adbert Alzolay, Chatwood, Jimmy Nelson? Could go for either SP or RP since I can move Alex Wood out of RP spot.

Is B Lowe a buy low?

Have a $7 Biggio in my keeper ($12 next year) and unless he really picks it up, I likely won’t keep

Could get a closer like Diekman and B Lowe for him now. Could get more later if he gets hot tho.

Was offered Vlad and Bo for my Lindor and Bellinger. At this point, with the Dodgers in no hurry to get Bellinger on the field, would you make that trade?

Hey Grey,
are you worried about Kyle Hendricks or think he will come around?

Do you think Dolis hangs onto the closer gig, or from reading these comments you think romano gets the next shot?

Lastly, do you like calhoun or santander better?

Thanks!!!

it’s been romano when both were healthy at same time. assuming romano doesn’t suddenly get horrible of course (he hasn’t been that yet). dolis is more likely to not even have the 8th inning when back (chatwood looms for that possibly) than be closer i’d bet on this. only player on TOR to have usurped romano was merryweather to some extent and he’s hurt longer than any of the useful TOR RP outside of yates of course.

nah, he’s walking off, albeit my guess is ankle sprain. probably not super horrible. the way i saw him go down it might’ve been worse.

i looked up at TV right when he was going down and rolling around seemingly in pain (basically the absolute worst time to look up, it only got better after that).

yeah he wasn’t even limping just favoring when he walked off. if it was bad i doubt they’d even let him walk off.

Call me crazy but I’m pretty sure Soto is still injured and surgery is required. Striking out more, walking less, hitting with less authority. Guy is basically a replacement level player right now and it’s driving me nuts. But I guess given this team also keeps rolling out Schwarber, I guess a non healthy Soto is not something they are opposed to. Thoughts?

yeah i got him and freeman in a 16 teamer and the 2 of them together, along with springer too pretty sure whether drafted or kept price take up my top 3 rounders in a deep league where i’m pretty much always a top 2 team, now 6th-8th out of 16. was below 11th for like a week or something too to start year. but i’m also first in same size other league with just soto (some other really good cost players going over there, like walsh as starting 1B, otani (both)). sure looks still injured. forgot, also have him in a 20 team redraft where i also have lou bob (so that’s top 1-2 rounders either out, or were out, or back and not really back). when lou bob was playing i was probably best team in the league too even with soto out. suuuucks on that one.

6×6 dynasty roto:

Would you send Patino for Neris. ( I could use saves)

I know it makes no sense age wise, but at the end of the year our 31 man roster is cut to 25. Now that Patino is up and not in a minor slot anymore….IDK if he will make the 25 man cut.

Thoughts? Thanks

So I offered Lewis for Merrifield in my league that has 5 standard batting cats + OPS, Ks, and ABs… and it was rejected because the guy believes Merrifield will equal or be better than Lewis in just about every category including HRs. The gauntlet has now been thrown down. Hopefully Lewis reaches your lofty preseason expectations because Lewis not hitting more HRs than Merrifield would be an insult

any other eflin owners freaked out by espn showing PHI losing 4-1 yet the play by play shows it 1-0 PHI in bottom of the 1st? i checked mlb.com and they have the same play by play in the bottom of the first 1-0 PHI. somebody’s foot hit some switch over at espn.

bell HR in fact makes it so. weirdest thing i’ve ever seen. must be whoever is running the play by play at the game itself is behind, like he got there late but they had another guy feeding ONLY the score in, and correctly.

12 team 6×6 with QS, I’m searching for saves. Only have EDiaz and RRod. I’m speculating holding Givens, chat wood and Fairbanks. Bard blew another save and has like a run every game, and Fairbanks may be a drop tomorrow but could get a save tonight (maybe idk). Chatwood seems the best RP in bullpen but of course Cole got the save last night.

Am I overthinking? Drop any? I could just get a streamer bat or something. Not sure any other good spec RP options. League is deep.

Another question, someone just dropped Kikuchi in the same league. Arms are brutal, and with QS a category, starters are very crucial. In a deep 12 teamer even the streamers are vomit.

I have the #1 waiver (rolling) and have saved up for an opportunity I deemed worthy. Is Kikuchi that guy?

Also, Pineda @CHW in 10 teamer a bench? Thanks

i’d hold givens before chatwood. romano is looking like he should and they’ve tried to make him do it a few times now. cole only went to not let romano get too tired coming back from injury almost certainly.

Just speculating from my basement armchair…

I know he is not on any closer depth chart, but Fulmer is about the only RP on Detroit that might actually fit the role. I think that might be a long term outlook.

I feel liberated now that I dropped Bell… I’ll keep my eye on him, but what a bust for Washington. I would rather have Zimmerman and all of his bad backs than that shmohawk…
