Roughly three months ago, we were talking about the grave, man. Not Kendall, but the one where Luis Robert (2-for-5, 1 RBI) was placed with care next to Eloy Jimenez (2-for-4, 5 RBIs and his 4th and 5th homer). Where Yermin Mercedes later joined him, then Yasmani Grandal, then Billy Hamilton, then Adam Eaton, but who cares about him. Really, the only ones not missing time for the White Sox has been the pitching staff. I just jinxed them, didn’t I? No, I haven’t because to offset my jinx, I took a cat-o-nine-tails and whipped my back 27 times, Lucas Giolito’s uniform number. Do I have to whip myself 33 times for Lance Lynn too? I’m not asking you, I’m asking the voodoo high priestess I am Zoom’ing with! The brutal truth is I didn’t have room for Luis Robert to sit on my IL for the last three months, and I dropped him. Well, that’s not the brutal part. The 88 lashes I’m being told to administer to myself for Robert’s uniform number is the brutal part. SOMEONE SAVE ME is what I scream into a Pringles can for later. You never scream an SOS into a can, then cap it in case you can’t scream later? Hmm, weird, must be me–Any hoo! I see Luis Robert as a top 30 bat again. Unlike, say, Chris Sale, hitters don’t need as much time to get up to speed, and if Robert’s healthy, I’m all-in. As for Eloy, well, he’s a top 20 bat. He homered twice on Sunday, followed that with a different song, same verse on Monday and, if he homers twice a game from now until October, I’ll prolly just mutter about how awful Cody Bellinger is and about how I dropped Eloy when he was supposedly out all year. Absolutely owning the day and the night, Grey Albright! Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Tim Anderson – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer, and 2nd homer in two games, and the White Sox are hot, you better bury your head below the incoming wrath, AL Central. Actually, strike that. I’ve seen you Burrows and it’s not pretty.

Lucas Giolito – 8 IP, 1 ER, 2 hits, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.81. With Josh Donaldson…Well, where is Josh Donaldson? Is he done for the year because the Twins are out of it? Any hoo! With the Twins looking just sad, Giolito took advantage, which I love. Don’t get good matchups if you can’t take advantage of them, that’s what I always say, and this might be the first time I’m saying it.

Yoan Moncada – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 10th homer. Good, great, adjective, but ya know what’s a little crazy? White Sox are almost entirely driven by their pitching, and are 21st in the league in homers, though better in average. Though, Part II: They Made Another One of Thoughs, what’s hilarious in its own way: The White Sox are 8th in the league in average, and hitting a walloping .249. Only two teams are hitting higher than .260 collectively!

Beau Burrows – 2 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 13.91. In Beau Burrows’s first start in the majors, he vomited on the mound. Last night, well, same.

Miguel Sano – 1-for-3 and his 19th homer, and his 2nd homer in two games, and after his 1st homer on Sunday, I said I wouldn’t be surprised if he hits a few homers this week. And that’s me paraphrasing me!

Clayton Kershaw – We haven’t had any news on Clayton Kershaw in a while, so you’re in luck! The Dodgers announced they were moving Kershaw to the 60-day IL.

Bobby Bradley – Hit the IL with a knee strain. Owen Miller will get more playing time, as he steps right off the pages of a John Irving novel.

Sam Hentges – 2 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 7.71. Fellas and five fell-for-fellas, it’s August 9th and most teams have at most three starters.

Jose Ramirez – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 25th homer. No matter how many times I point out Jo-Ram does <emphasis>not</emphasis> suck with no one around him, people continue to ask if Juan Soto has lost all value.

Amed Rosario – 4-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .277. It is so wild to me that Amed Rosario is the top performer this year out of all the guys in the Lindor/Amed and Gimenez trade. Also, I grabbed Amed about two weeks ago in my shallowest league, and have been riding him ever since.

Bradley Zimmer – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, and 2nd homer in two games. Hot schmotato alert!

Luis Castillo – 3 1/3 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 4.53. It’s perfect that he got housed by Wilson Ramos, who at least 98% of casual fans think retired. A chef’s kiss that is laced with arsenic, that is Luis Castillo.

Kwang-Hyun Kim – Hit the IL with elbow inflammation. Hey, Kim, Lose Yourself from my teams.

Jazz Chisholm – Hit the Covid IL one day after coming off the Covid IL. He needs to see if Dan Vogelbach or Miguel Sano can give him some of their antibodies.

Lewis Brinson – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .268, hitting .340 in the last 15 games with three homers. Have you heard the drama about Brinson and the Rockies? The quick recap is there was a word screamed by a fan, and everyone thought he was saying, well, a word that reminds me of Michael Richards meltdown on a comedy stage, but it turns out the fan was saying, “Dinger” as he screamed for the Rockies mascot. Now, after much deliberation, the Rockies decided to change their mascot’s name Dinger to the far-less-controversial, Nutsi. In a PR/Media Relations release, they said, “The Rockies hope everyone can scream Nutsi’s name for years to come, and ask if you’re doing the wave, please raise both hands while screaming Nutsi.”

Zach Thompson – 4 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 3.09. That Thompson who had a 1.93 ERA after six weeks in the majors? He never really existed.

Joe Musgrove – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.81. There’s stats to back up Musgrove is a top 15 starter now, and will be for next year. I think I’m buying those stats too.

Eric Hosmer – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer. Hosmer’s a good example of “spending $500 million by a major league team doesn’t make the coaches smarter.” It’s so obvious Hosmer lost all the gains he made last year with his Launch Angle, but no one is obviously smart enough to fix it.

Jameson Taillon – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.82. Streamonator doesn’t like his next start and it’s in Chicago vs. the White Sox, and you want some of Eloy’s smoke? You crazy.

Gleyber Torres – Hit the IL with a sprained thumb, and might miss up to 20 days. Filling in will be Tyler Wade, which is just sad. Tyler Wade is like a weed the Yanks can’t get rid of. Like Billy Martin, but sober and alive. But even Billy Martin won a couple World Serieses, and Tyler Wade had a decent game yesterday (2-for-3, 3 runs and his 8th steal).

DJ LeMahieu – 2-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI as he fell in the order to the five hole. I don’t like LeMahieu, told you to sell him, but — and this is a soft, whispered but — the Yanks’ other option at leadoff is Brett Gardner. Ow! Eye roll headache.

Luke Voit – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer. If you would’ve taken the under on Luke Voit having less than five homers by August 9th, what kind of odds could you have gotten? 10,000 to 1? On the bright side, he led the majors in homers last year, and he had exactly four homers by this point.

Carlos Hernandez – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.11. Said something the other day about the Yanks’ lineup being good, but that really is just on paper, huh? Yanks’ lineup is like mix-matched Russian nesting dolls at a garage sale. Instead of them all fitting together, they have three tall pieces and no pieces to go inside that are complementary, so all the pieces lay next to each other or are jammed together and break.

Richard Lovelady – 1 1/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 5.40. Must’ve been a super quick convo when they had to explain the birds and the bees to Dick Lovelady.

Team has gone from first to fifth in two bad weeks and is off to a rough start this week in our 12 teamer, h2h league. With playoffs three weeks out, I am in win-now mode playing three playoff bound teams to finish the season. Plenty of injuries to navigate too hence the need for advice. Seven WW adds per week max.
Team and WW below:

C – Stassi
CI – Freeman, Abreu, Donaldson
MI – Trea, Albies, Polanco
OF – play five: Springer, Winker, Lowe, Walsh, Yordan
Util: Cesar
IL – Tapia
SP – Burnes, Gausman, Urias, Eovaldi, Disco, streamer spot
RP – Colome, Fioro, D Castillo, Gallegos, Box (saves and holds are separate cats. Holding Box at least until Hader gets back).

WW options:
1. Cease…. streamer or swap for Eovaldi or for one of my awful RP?
2. Cueto….same question.
3. Gallegos pretty good year with two bad outings last week. Cabrera used Tuesday instead of Gio. Hold or swap for SP?
4. Walsh is a scary prop given his injury and lackluster last 30 days.?Best on the wire is I guess Benny or J Rojas. Hold or swap?
5. Donaldson out so much but has power and walks a lot. Hold or Bohm?
Gracias!

Hey Grey!

I don’t know if you remember me ranting about trying to get rid of Jose Abreu, well, I did.

We are in year 5 of a current keeper league and next year should be keeper 7 or 8. I won’t 2 of 4 years thus far and placed 2nd and non place one year. I came from almost dead last to 7th and 1.5 games out of a Playoff spot. I had a really tough first 10 weeks in this league. It happens. My other re draft I am in first.

I have a question for my keeper and job keeper.

1) This is the trade. I know I own and I honestly think I robbed him but you tell me:

I get: Bryce Harper OF, Max Muncy 2B, Grisham OF

He gets: Jose Abreu 1B, Ozzie Albies 2B, Jake McGee RP

It is a 12 Team H2H 6X6 R HR RBI SB AVG OPS K:9 QS K ERA WHIP S+H

My team is

C – D’Arnaud
1B – Olson
2B – Muncy
3B – Escobar
SS – Swanson
OF – Soto
OF – Harper
OF – Yelich
UTIL – Grisham
UTIL – Avisail Garcia
B – Moncado
B – Straw

It’s a deep league so I like 2-3 bench bats.

Won’t show my pitching as my pitching didn’t get affected by this.

Did I do well especially for a keeper? Let’s put it this way. I feel good about it lol.

2) Non keeper league, would you stash Grandal? It is an OBP league.

3) Would you now drop Moose? He isn’t playing?

Thank you!!

I would drop Moose for Grandal to stash. I don’t have anymore IL Spots I have Pablo whose coming back soon and Lindor on the IL, Rogers NA, and I’m stashing Severino so I would be stashing Grandal and own Nola.

I’m in first. I usually wouldn’t stash so much but I feel comfortable with my lead and roster and schedule.

Dude, Sonny Gray breaks down every game
No matter the opponents in the 5/6/7. He’s like a 4 Inning Pitcher.

I read all of the comments on that thread. Many speculating he actually has a partially torn achilles and the Angels knew about it but aren’t telling anyone. That would make sense to me as there’s no way a normal ‘calf strain’ puts him out for three months.

Trade Analyzer is pretty close between Myles Straw and Amed Rosario – which do you think would be better for my league where we score standard 5 cats + OPS, Ks, and ABs… I was hoping Straw would be the classic SAGNOF, but it seems like Rosario might give me more balance while also not being too far off with SBs

MadBum been pretty solid the past few starts-are you trusting him going forward. I’m looking at filling his spot with McHugh or Whitlock for ratios.

I have a few pitchers that might be border line streamers-Eovaldi, Price, and Bum.

Not sure if I want to wrap myself in relievers thou.

I know someone asked early-but does Givens run with the role or is Simms the better stash. Someone has to close for the Reds as they make their push for the playoffs.

I’ve been debating just punting catcher position for the time being while Sanchez is on the IL – covid, but could pick one up. Do you see any other people you’d switch from the wire?

Scoring question (not Fantasy related). I noted that Loasigna came in the 7th inning (2 run lead) and gave up 2 runs. The box score says this is a Blown save. I don’t think “Blown save’ is an official measure — but since he would not have pitched enough to finish the game, seems like a misleading stat. And would it have been so designated if he came in the 6th inning?

Hey grey
Do you think givens runs with the job or is sims worth holding

Also, is Touki still to be trusted or can we throw him back – getting some fantasy tingles on elieser who seems on the verge of coming back – make the switch?

Weekly H2H league. Looks like Justin Turner will miss a couple of games. He generally destroys the Mets, who he has this weekend. Do I risk him missing more games, and start Toro or Mcneil at 3rd, or take the shot on Turner only missing a couple of games and doing more damage in NY than those guys do all week. My gut says start Toro. Finally, picked up Ynoa as he seems close, gotta drop a player. Comforto, Rowdy, Quantril, Toro, McNeil are the guys who are in the running. Ive held onto Conforto all year, waiting for at least him to get hot, it would hurt if he did it after I dropped him, but I am tied for 1st place and trying to not let things like that influence my decisions. Thank you in advance

Morning! So I’m in win now mode in a 12-team H2H with 6×6 scoring (OPS and K/BB added).

My offense has been sliced up by injuries and I’m clinging to second place. Someone offered Springer (can’t keep) for Riley (11th rounder). I have Bregman coming back, so I’m tempted, but Riley has been a stalwart.

Should I risk it for the biscuit? I could also counter with Freddy Peralta (16th rounder) or Severino (13th) since my pitching is fairly deep.

Severino if he’ll take it but I’d take Springer as well.

I’m to blame for Castillo. I traded for him because he looked fixed enough for the final push.

MLB network and the Rockies sure owe that poor guy yelling “Dinger” and their fans in general a big apology, for assuming the worst and putting out blatant misinformation. Shouldn’t they have investigated first before putting out a statement accusing someone of being a racist? Maybe those who think they heard the inflamatory word are the ones with the racial issue.

Thoughts on Jonathan India ROS and as a keeper? Is he completely playing over his head at this point? Or is he a legitimate .300 hitter with some pop and speed?

Seems legit for ROS. Depends on keeper rules. I bet he’s still a little underrated going into next year.
