Yesterday, Lucas Duda went 3-for-5, 3 RBIs with two homers (26, 27).  He now has five homers in the last three days.  Duda goes from doodie to Duda in the blink of an eye.  He’s like a sports car that goes 0 to 60 in five seconds flat that you only drive three times a year, because, while your penis may be small, you’re also reasonable enough to realize if someone crashes into you, you’re going to cry and that’s embarrassing in front of your future trophy wife.  It seems like no matter how many games Duda misses and no matter how deep his slumps get, he gets scorching hot at some point and will get to thirty homers.  His hot streaks are shorter, but he reminds me of a poor man’s Chris Davis.  I will call him Piss Davis.  Maybe I won’t call him that to his face.  Somehow, Duda is available in over 40% of ESPN leagues. (Though 85% of leagues are abandoned already so he’s owned in 125% of leagues.  Hmm…) So, if he’s out there, grab him before he takes the car back into the shop and pays $54,000 for a new taillight.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Matt Harvey – Will only make one start in the NLDS, which is the National League Division Series, if there were any Mormons reading this, thinking I was now covering the National Latter Day Saints ping-pong tournament.  Though, that one Mormon who only speaks Chinese is suspicious to me.

Steven Matz – Stiffness in his right side, but it’s not considered serious and should start on Thursday.  The Mets won the division already.  Just throw Bobby Bonilla, who they’re paying a million dollars this year, to start the remaining games.  *wipes hands on apron*  Done, that’s it, problem fixed.

Darin Ruf – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 11th homer.  I hear the name Darin and I immediately think of Bewitched because I’m old!  As for Ruf, he has three homers in the past week, so could be a hot schmotato.

Maikel Franco – Will rejoin the Phils on Thursday.  Yes, just in time to re-injure himself and hurt his chances of becoming a superstar next year.  Apparently, they’re letting Ruin Tomorrow Jr. finish out the season over Skype.

Giancarlo Stanton – The Marlins announced Stanton is done for the season.  This takes a load off of my mind, which is somewhere a load doesn’t usually come from when I think of Giancarlo.

Logan Forsythe – Left yesterday’s game after being hit on the foot.  Could cost him some time since he never practiced walking on his hands as a youngster.

Matt Moore – 7 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks.  I streamed him yesterday and I would on Sunday too…Okay, honestly, interjection, at this point, I’m streaming everyone.

Mikie Mahtook – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer, and his third homer this week.  Fine, I give up, he’s a hot schmotato!

Asdrubal Cabrera – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 14th homer and 2nd this week.  Yes, you would’ve been better off with Asdrubal than Rendon.  Stop pointing out those facts that hurt me.

Michael Pineda – 6 IP, 7 ER.  “This Pineda is so easy to hit, a kid could do it.” Something overheard at the Yankee game and Party City.

Dustin Ackley – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, and his 2nd homer in as many games.  Ackley sounds like the noise one makes when they’re about to be sick, but he is definitely hot.

Mookie Betts – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 16th homer.  I’m not a Red Sox fan by any stretch of the imagination.  I’m not really a fan of any team.  It’s all about fantasy for me.  With that said (here comes something!), I have a feeling I’m going to be ranking Betts above every other ‘pert next year.

Rick Porcello – 8 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 8 Ks.  The Stream-o-Nator mildly likes his last start of the year and if you’re thinking about streaming, I say, at that point, what the eff you got the lose?

Blake Swihart – 2-for-4, 5 RBIs and two homers (4, 5), and third in three games.  He was thisclose to be the lede today, but, well, catchers.  I would grab him though, if he’s available.

Trea Turner – 2-for-3 and his 1st career homer.  There’s more where that came from!  I mean, the odds that anyone would hit one homer and never another one are slim to anorexic.

Ryan Zimmerman – Done for the year.  Backdate this to 2008.

Yunel Escobar – Out with an upper back issue.  For those wondering, an issue of Upper Back isn’t a chiropractor periodical.

Tanner Roark – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks.  The Stream-o-Nator hates his last start of the year, but it’s against the Mets and I can’t imagine they put any of their regulars out there for longer than three innings.  By Sunday, the Mets may not even have a pitcher than can more than three innings.

A.J. Pierzynski – 3-for-3 and two solo homers (8, 9).  Incredibly, I’ve made it all the way up to 2nd place in Tout Wars.  The only place I can really gain points is in power.  What does all this have to do with Pierzynski?  Guess who owns the lesser of the two A.J. Pollocks?  This mustachioed man!

Matthew Wisler – 7 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks.  Sure would’ve been better to stream this schmohawk for two starts this week than Cody Anderson, after the latter was rained out last night and now likely won’t get a 2nd start.

Adam Wainwright – Will be activated on Wednesday.  A reputable site said, “He can be a “secret” weapon for St. Louis in the playoffs.”  Quotes around secret aside, is Wainwright a secret weapon?  Like, “Holy turdbuckets, who is that guy?!  Check the media guide, quick!  Oh, it’s the guy who has finished in the top three in Cy Young balloting four times.”

Stephen Piscotty – Has a concussion, but the Cards’ GM said he has a “slight concussion.”  Oh, yeah, like a slight heart attack.

Brad Ziegler – He’s away from the club for the birth of his child.  Nine months ago, Ziegler emerged from his bedroom saying, “Now that’s some sidearm action!”

Robbie Ray – 6 IP, 2 ER, 9 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.50.  I think that’s his last start of the year, but either way, he’s definitely worked his way onto a short list of pitchers that will be drafted after the top 200 overall next year, that could easily end up a top 30 starter.

Carlos Gonzalez – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 40th homer.  Could someone draft only Rockie hitters next year just ’cause?  Please, I think it’ll work, but I’m scared of 10-day road trips.

Greg Holland – Will have Tommy John surgery on Friday.  That means Holland won’t be doing a windmill with his arm until 2017.

Johnny Cueto – 6 IP, 3 ER, 10 baserunners, 2 Ks vs. Jeff Samardzija 7 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks.  This matchup was billed as, “A Pitcher Who Kicks People In The Head vs. A Pitcher I’d Like To Kick In The Head.”  Sadly, no one was kicked in the head yesterday.

Kendrys Morales – 1-for-3 and his 22nd homer and his 106th RBI.  Yes, he has more RBIs than Jose Abreu.  In case, ya know, you were wondering.

Eric Hosmer – 2-for-4 and his 17th homer.  Only three more homers to reach the number of homers most 1st basemen had by June 1st during the steroids era.

Adam Eaton – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 14th homer.  Next year’s Pollock?  Yes, if Lee Krasner were to manage him.

Carlos Gomez – Still has intercostal discomfort.  If I may assist the Astros organization, it was a lousy trade.  He’s been injured all year and never able to get in much of a groove.  You’re better off without him.  Damn, I’m a tough love SOB.  By the by, I always found it odd that SOB is also sob, as in to cry.  I’d like to whip that acronym SOB into shape, that’s how tough I am!

Robinson Cano – 1-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 20th homer.  I’m glad he’s managed to put himself in a position to be overdrafted yet again last year.  You know, Cano, the one that is ranked about the same as Brandon Belt on our Player Rater.

Mike Fiers – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.69.  His ERA is a lie.  I have no idea how he’s doing it, but it’s a lie.

Michael Brantley – Could be shut down for the year.  Yeah, no fooling, foo’.

Todd Frazier – Has a slight Achilles strain.  How an Achilles strain can be slight is Greek to me.  This will likely end Frazier’s season.  Guess we’ll never find out if Frazier ends up with Diane.

Dan Haren – 7 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.67.  Don’t even get involved with the theory that you could’ve just drafted Haren 10 rounds after Samardzija and had been better off.  I’ve gone down that rabbit hole and it’s not fun.

Tyson Ross – 6 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 7 Ks.  Every year one pitcher throws a no-hitter on the last day of the season (totally not a fact).  I’m gonna guess it’s Ross this year.

Jean Segura – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer.  I don’t think I’m gonna write a sleeper post on Segura this offseason, but the cold months of the winter (65 in LA; I have a laser thermometer to check it) can change my mind.

Clayton Kershaw – 9 IP, 0 ER, 2 baserunners, 13 Ks as the Dodgers clinched in front of the Giants fans.  So disgusted, Giants fans couldn’t even finish their chardonnay.

Madison Bumgarner – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, Zero Homers Hit, Three Homers Allowed (Ruggiano, A.J. Ellis, Kike Hernandez, a real murderer’s row, if we’re talking about murdering one’s perception of what a good hitter is).  That was the most homers he’s allowed in a game since his rookie season.  After 270 IP last year, he’s thrown the third most pitches this year.  Next year, his arm falls off.

Cole Hamels – 6 IP, 6 ER.  Too bad this game didn’t get rained out too.

Shin-Soo Choo – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 21st homer.  His steals this year did a disappearing act — it’s not a trick, it’s illusion! — but Choo’s year has been decent outside of that.  Well, not year, but 2nd half.  His .350 average in the 2nd half has helped fix a lot.

J.D. Martinez – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 38th homer.  Said like a cologne commercial voiceover, “Just Dong, because that’s all she wants.”

Daniel Norris – 1 2/3 IP, 2 ER, but 4 unearned runs.  “Hello, and welcome back to, ‘How Phenomenally Stupid Is That Manager?!’  The Ph is pronounced like an F if any managers are reading.  So, last time out Norris was pulled with a perfect game going because the Tigers are trying to watch his arm.  He was pulled after 63 pitches.  Yesterday, in a mess of a start?  He threw 71 pitches!  Coming up after the break, Mattingly.”

Nick Tropeano – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 11 Ks.  Wow.  Guess he was the guy to stream.  Prior to this, Tropeano’s claim to fame was when NBC called him to be the hunky doofus in the LA version of Friends.

    Got two adds left for this week. Would you use one of them to start Eickhoff tomorrow vs. NYM? He’s been great the past three starts, but it’s also Philly, and early in the week. I just don’t like deferring my adds to the weekend because it becomes such a clusterfart of lineup and rotation shuffles.

    Nice write-ups, as per usual. :o)

    Finals week, head-to-head. Team Epic Fail has managed to make the playoffs, defeat the #2, and then the #1 teams and is now faced off against #6. Scoring is 7×7. Daily transactions available. Now down to the brass tacks. With three double headers today, I’m feeling the crunch on some decisions:

    C – Voigt (v Richards) (alt’s Grandal v Leake, Norris v Davies, Molina v Cole&Morton, Murphy v ChAnderson)
    1b- Freeman (v Zimm) (alt’s Duda v Asher, VMart v Gallardo)
    2b- Altuve (v anyone)

    3b-Carpenter (v Cole, v Morton)
    SS-Lindor (v Gibson, v Pelfry)
    SS/3b- Sano (v Carrasco, v C. Anderson)

    OF-Peralta (v Bettis)
    OF-Inciarte (v Bettis)
    OF-Revere (v Gausman, v M González)
    OF-Yelich (v Smyly)
    OF-Gardner (v Miley)
    OF-Reddick (v Richards)

    SP-Stroman
    SP-Carrasco
    (Streamers – Gollardo? Lyons? Cosart? Miley? Verrett, Davies? Gausman?)

    So … I’m tempted to pick up all DblHs, but getting a few 0/8s can really hurt and DblHs for Catchers tend to split catching duties. Below are the question areas with an * for where I’m leaning.

    Voigt – Murphy*, Grandal, Norris, Molina?
    Freeman – Duda, V-Mart ?
    Carpenter/Lindor/Sano – 3b/SS
    OF – Revere*, Peralta, Inciarte, Yelich, Reddick, Gardner
    UT-?
    SP – Any *strong* streamers from above?

    So far, tied in HRs (1) and SB (0).

    Opinions/advice – greatly appreciated. Tight race.

      @Syllogism: Thanks! I’d go Murphy… Duda… Carp, Lindor… Revere, Peralta, Inciarte, Yelich, Reddick, Gardner… I’m streaming Gausman, it’s risky, there’s no strong streamers

        Clarification –

        “Revere, Peralta, Inciarte, Yelich, Reddick, Gardner” I can only play 3 in OF … I can keep one more (or Freeman or Sano) as my utility ….

        So which three do you like for OF, of: Revere, Peralta, Inciarte, Yelich, Reddick, Gardner

        and which one do you like for UT: Freeman, Sano, or the fourth OF of Revere, Peralta, Inciarte, Yelich, Reddick, Gardner?

  5. What about Stroman? Make-up game double header today. I suppose the Sunday start is toast now? Can drop him after today for another streamer then?

    • Gus Pike says:
      (link)

      @madden_curser:
      Assuning Jays clinch there is talk of Buerhle getting a short start on Sunday. He needs 8.2 innings to get to 200 on the year (for I think the 14th-15th straight year) and has one more start scheduled. If he can get 6-7 IP there he would go again on Sunday.

      All that to say, wouldn’t count on Stroman.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @madden_curser: Anyone pitching today won’t pitch a full five innings on Sunday

      • Jay says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Has that been historically proven or is that an educated guess on your part? Asking because now that Carrasco gets the earlier game, wondering if I should hold on to him in case he starts on the last day.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          If you count out the days, it’s four days rest, starters don’t pitch on four days rest unless there’s huge stakes

          • Jay says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Thanks for the quick response! Not to spoil myself with your attention, but along the same lines, if Tyson Ross is not listed as the Sunday probable on MLB.com, and Foxsports just came out with an article saying he just had his last start…probably enough evidence to support that he will NOT be starting the final day of the season despite 5 days between last night and then, correct? Apologies for the finicky question, but it’s crunch time and the uncertainty of this last week is giving me the combined anxiety of every Jewish woman in my family.

    Fantasy Master Lothario (no abbreviations, please!!)

    a. Not sure if you know the profound effect Beethoven had on Chopin during his formative period but if you listen closely to his music it’s unmistakable. When you fully appreciate that effect that Beethoven had on Chopin, you will be aware of maybe 1% of how deeply you influence me. This is not a sob story or frivolity, only the truth. And it’s not just the advice or the way you present your information. It’s way more than that.

    b. Sorry for being absent. Am still in mourning after losing my finals H2H matchup that I was leading by 100 points going into Sunday’s action!!! Lost by 4 fantasy points, despite finishing first in points and breakdown and first in the power rankings. Life goes on, bla-bla-bla, but it still hurts.

    c. No NORM MACDONALD quotes forthcoming. Sorry to disappoint (or delight pbmax and others, reversal!).

    Last weekly deadline is today. Handful of questions for 5×5 roto league.

    1) Pitching – Only categories that can move are Wins and Saves. Hard to stack one without harming the other.

    A) Despite the randomness of wins, please rank the following starters for win potential (mostly): Leake (vLAD Bolsinger – day after LAD clinch), Davies (@SD Cashner), Kennedy (vMIL Jungman), Kluber (vBOS E-Rod)

    B) I’ve picked up a bunch of guys who ‘might’ get saves these last five days. Please rank for saves only: Tolleson (TEX), Jepsen (MIN), Feliz (DET), Gott (LAA), Trienen (WAS).

    2) Hitting – The only categories that remain close are AVG, RBI and SB. Again, tough to stack one without potentially harming the other.

    A) MI options are Alcides, Wong, Desmond, Odor, K Marte. Please rank top three.

    B) OF Options are OZUNA, Bruce, Burns, Pagan, Joc, Rajai (why has he stopped running?), Marisnick, Myers, Dyson, Mahtook. Please rank top three.

    C) Yes, Catcher question: Arencibia, Grandal, Swihart, Garneau. Please rank top two.

    That’s all for now. Thanks for all the advice during the year.

    Yo, BB.
    As a mets fan, figured I’d offer some insight into Duda, as he basically won me my semifinals as well.
    There tends to be a hole in his swing during the cold streaks, and then it magically just goes away when he closes it. It’s interesting. Up and in with fastballs. He’ll go weeks where he can’t catch up to anything in there and he continues to swing. Then, one day, he’ll catch up to a high inside fastball and crank it out, and then you know. It’s about to happen. Weeks of glorious longballs everywhere.

    Two adds left. Got Chris Kaboom Carter but Duda and Cron are out there (next day adds). Duda is scheduled against Eickhoff tomorrow, Gio Friday, Scherzer Saturday, and for all we know he’ll rest on Sunday like some Demi Duda Deity. Would you still bet on Duda to keep the hot streak going or would you rather have Carter, or CJ Cron (Thurs-Sun @ TEX), on your squad to finish the season?

    In other news, all of us still here need a vacation soon. Not all together, that might be awkward and crowded. But you know, in general.

    H2H championship. I’m up but with a deceiving score as the cats are pretty close and my opponent has 4 SPs going today. I should be fine in SP options from here through Sunday though (currently projected at seven), while my opponent will have 3 on tap (including Harvey on Saturday). This is a QS league.

    R HR RBI SB AVG K QS SV ERA WHIP
    Opponent 37 10 34 2 0.2797 63 6 8 2.478 1.29
    Me 35 12 35 1 0.2851 93 10 11 2.455 0.877

    I have 3 moves left and my opponent has burned all of his. I’m looking to use one move on better production from 2B where I currently have Gyorko. With a couple of double-dips going today, I’m eyeing dropping Gyorko for Neil Walker, Harrison (PIT v Walker and v Lyons), or Jose Ramirez (CLE v Kyle Gibson and v Pelfrey). Who do you like from those three?

    I could also drop Domingo Santana for someone like TKOS (Rajai) looking for SBs and Rs. Or I could drop Pineda as I’d be able to pickup another SP later if it turns out to be needed.

    • Grey

    Hey hey,

    I’m in the rotisserie thick of it for the final push. Roster spots are opening up as I can drop guys who are getting shut down or are close enough anyway (Frazier, A. Jones), but what do you think the chances are of Glenn Perkins getting back into the closer role over the last few days? I’m just sick of holding him on my bench while I have Jepsen in an RP slot.

    Won my league! Long-standing, 12-team, competitive H2H points league.
    17-7 Overall.

    Followed the blueprint you guys put together – love the tiered approach as a draft formula. I think I took Arrieta as my first SP in the mid-rounds, allowing others to reach on Kershaw and Scherzer. Paid off exponentially. I believe I took Rizzo 1, Harper 2 and Arenado 3…also, wound up picking up several key pieces on the waiver from impatient owners (Cano, Desmond, Kemp, Ellsbury, etc. were all dropped at some point during the season).

    My only regret is taking Dickerson in round 4! Sad story there.

    Overall, great advice and approach to fantasy baseball. Thanks!

    Hi Grey, I’m currently in 1st with another team hot on my heels, and this is going to be a photo finish. Just wanted your advice on how to maximize my pitching staff through the last couple days. 12 team league, with K, QS, ERA, WHIP, HLD, NSV. Every category is close and could swing. I have 34 innings left on the season.

    Lester – Today @Cin (I’m thinking Start)
    Carrasco – Today vs Min (I’m thinking Start)
    Zimmerman – Today @Atl (Don’t trust him, Sit)
    Arrieta – Friday @Mil (Start)
    Salazar – Friday vs Bos (???)

    Relievers: Allen, Ziegler, Giles, Soria, Benoit

    I’m thinking that if I start Salazar on Friday then I’ll almost assuredly hit my innings limit. Kind of thinking I should sit him to save some innings for some possible saves and holds over the weekend. This would be my first championship (started reading Razzball last year), so any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated, good sir!

    1. Lynn, Happ, and Haren are all slated as Sunday starters. What are the chances each/any of them have a normal start, rather than get pulled early, or benched altogether as teams assemble their playoff rotations?

    2. Absent premature desperation, would you start Sabbathia tomorrow against BOS, Hendricks @ MIL Saturday, and/or Colby Lewis at home against the Angels Saturday?

    • Grey

      1. Unlikely on any of them starting, maybe Haren goes 3 IP 2. I’d start them all…Hendricks, Lewis then CC

    (link)

    Hey Grey – I’m up 7-5 in my H2H finals right now. However, I only have 3 grabs left + my opponent has many more – so rather than try and win Ks I’m looking to hold onto ERA/WHIP (3.2/1.16 compared to his 4.01/1.34) + make some targeted streams to snag a couple more QSs/Ws.

    Also – in light of Forsythe’s possible injury, and with Miggy likely only playing 1-2 more games, I may be down a couple of key starters (2B or UTL), where Runs + HR are most important, as well as maintaining my high OBP (.375 right now, to his .364).

    1. Do I use one of my remaining 3 roster spots on a hitter, to grab either:
    (a) a 2B like Dozier, DJ, Keke, or…ORr
    (b) go for the hottest player available (as a UTL when Miggy sits) like Bour (facing PHI pitching soon), my namesake Duda (but facing tough WASH pitching), or fairly cold Fowler (but v. really terrible pitchers)?

    2. Which 2-3 streamers are the smartest bets for good ratios, a QS + W?

    Corbin v. COL
    Hill @ NYY
    Santana v. KC
    Burnett v. Cin
    Hendricks @ MIL
    Pineda @ BAL

    h2h finals both hitting like crap so im still in it and lineup is below. Have 4 moves left 2 maybe 3 will be on pitching. Likely going tomlin peavy hendricks as you suggested few days back. Leaves me with 1 bat move for sure and possibly 2?

    Catchers Gomes Santana
    Votto
    Kipnis
    Starlin
    Donaldson
    upton
    betts
    calhoun
    dickerson
    ozuna
    Arenado

    10 tm lg and if these bats just woke up id probably win this thing but its final week baseball so yeah….

    1.Should I grab a E Escobar(eligible at ever posi!) he could fill in for Starlin days off and also be a backup OF? hmmm

    2.Should i just grab another hot bat period like mahtook inciarte Altherr kiemier trumbo

    3.Should I just grab another SS. Starlin im guessing starts today and most likely at least 2 of next 4 but? Semien Cabrera Marte Peralta

    4. Would i gain from adding another Catcher Swihart realmuto to backup

    So i can only really do one of the 4 options maybe 2, what two options above should i target in order of importance

    Need innings in a couple of leagues, but need good performances of course.
    Would you pitch Chase Anderson, Volquez, Gallardo and/or Drew Smyly tonight?
    Thank you

      I’m throwing Anderson and Smyly

    Odorizzi vs Miami must start in all leagues

    Corbin or odorizzi

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d start both…Odorizzi first

  51. Niu says:

    Start volquez today or drop him for corbin. Less starts the better in this league

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Drop for Corbin

      • Niu says:

        @Grey: volquez or peavy

      Corbin

        @Grey: Safe to drop Lester after tonight’s start, i.e. no way he pitches Sunday, right?

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Drop him

  53. joe says:

    Pretty comfy ERA cushion, WHIP might be close, trying to push over the IP cap on Saturday in a Yahoo league for some extra K’s/W’s. Who do you take? I’m planning on 2-3 guys but realistically could fit in up to 7 of ’em. I’m thinking just Hendricks and Lewis.

    Hendricks v MIL
    Lewis vLAA
    Ubaldo vNYY
    Koehler @PHI
    Harang vMIA
    Finnegan @PIT
    Milone vKC
    Hellickson vHOU
    Doubront @SEA
    Erik Johnson vDET
    Rusin, TWagner, Erlin… eh, just no I’m pretty sure.

    Hey Grey – I’m in 1st with a slim lead. Need to protect Ks, ERA and WHIP and can move up with wins. Would you start Quintana vs KC tonight?

  56. Josh says:
    (link)

    Need a chance at a win without risk of a 10ER blowup Grey. K’s/WHIP are locked up. Who do you like for my last stream of the year? Some bigger names on the WW than usual due to pitchers getting dropped for 2 starters.

    Rich Hill @ NYY (CC)
    Eickhoff vs NYM (Tim Stauffer)
    Syndergaard vs WSH (Gonzalez)
    Hendrikcs @ MIL (Wagner)
    Hammel @ CIN (Lamb)
    Heston vs COL
    Kennedy vs MIL (Jungmann)

    Wins are pretty fickle, and while it may seem like on paper some of the other guys have better matchups I’m leaning towards just picking up the best pitcher (Thor, by a landslide) and hoping Washington continues to fail. Whatcha think?

    Sometimes you just have to turn away from your fantasy livescoring app and look at him for what he is.

    Last round of questions of the season!I
    1)I’m 0.5 points out of first in roto. I have FIVE innings left. I’ll enter tomorrow tied with someone in wins, so I’ll have a half a point to gain there. Should I start Garcia at Atlanta, pull a hail mary and try to grab five relievers who could possibly get a win (wins), or is there another streamer out there you like? (I tried the reliever approach today with Blanton, Watson, who I’m keeping since he didn’t pitch today, and Siegrist). That bit me in the ass as they ate up precious innings.

    2)I’m also 4 steals behind the guy above me and .02 behind the leader in OPS. Which would you chase? I’m thinking OPS. I don’t think Marte has stolen a base since I picked him up.

    3)Finally, thanks so much to the whole Razzball crew. I wouldn’t even be fighting it out for the win without you guys.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1) Garcia 2) Chase OPS 3) No worries

      • @Grey: Realizing you can go over the innings limit on the day you cross it and stats still count, I streamed Hammel, Eickoff, Holland, Medlen, Sabathia, B. Anderson, and Heaney today. And have Andew Miller in the last pitching slot for good measure. So far so good.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Nice!

          • @Grey: Shit. Now I’m insure if I ran out of innings yesterday or today. Do stats show up on your daily lineup page and just not get added to your totals or do they blank out on your lineup page during the day?

  68. Hey Grey have a great idea but don’t tell anyone OK, anyways being its the last week of the season and the finals for some fantasy baseball leagues. yOU ought to look into starting a Fantasy playoff crisis line so to speak. Maybe an open forum for some sad soul like myself to vent as they watch this past 6 or 7 months hard work wither through my fingertips or there’s. and second guess My or our whole fantasy managerial value. meet on Sundays and Wednesdays of the entire fantasy playoff schedule. Except donations. claim we are a church. Rip some people off Tax free Well anyways my buzz is starting to wear off and the idea doesn’t sound as appealing as it did two minutes ago, it’s yours now Grey run with it… Yeah my team is playing like shit ya know but i keep winning and that’s all that counts… Right DroOgiEs

    Can you, or anyone who knows the answer, help me out ASAP. I’ve never done roto before or come up against my game and innings pitched limits. If I’ve reached the games limit for outfielders but am under on utility games played, can I still use outfielders in the utility spot?
