Shh…That was what I was saying yesterday. I was like a librarian with my index finger pressed to my collagen-filled lips. I was lowering the shades of my house hoping no one passing by would see how well Luis Severino was pitching. My phone rang; it was a telemarketer, and I talked to them for 45 minutes because I knew if they were talking to me, then they couldn’t be watching Luis Severino and getting excited for him for 2023 fantasy. One less person who’s going to be get all Jazzy Jeff’d for Luis Severino. I don’t need people seeing that! Yesterday, Luis Severino went 7 IP, 0 ER, zero hits, 1 walk, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.18, as he was throwing speedballs by everyone, just peppering 98 to 100 MPH fastballs into the 7th inning, like it was nothing. For 2023 fantasy, Luis Severino will be going around the number three fantasy starters, and be on my short list for guys who can be an ace. I’m already thinking about the Luis Severino sleeper. I wrote a Jordan Montgomery sleeper last year, so being on the Yankees won’t preclude that possibility. Severino’s going to get all that 2023 shine! Now, that you’ve read this, set fire to your computer so no one else can read this and know how good Severino was yesterday. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Giancarlo Stanton – 1-for-2 and his 30th homer. Aight, Imma let you finish, but what did Aaron Judge do? 1-for-4 and now hitting .311. Luis Arraez, pulling a Jose Reyes, is sitting out with the AL batting title, so it’s going to be hard for Judge to get the Triple Crown. If you’re Aaron Judge (already laughable but hear me out), and you’ve wrapped up the Triple Crown, but are still sitting on 61, do you take another at-bat to go for 62, and risk losing the batting title?

Martin Perez – 6 IP, 1 ER, 10 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 2.89. Yesterday, he was inducing double plays even if the bases were empty. Honestly, watching how he induced so much weak contact, I kinda saw the attraction. I’m coming around just in time for him to burn me so bad next year.

Scott Effross – 1 IP, 0 ER, and his 4th save, ERA at 2.54. The $200 million Yanks rocking this guy as their closer is just an echoing chef’s kiss. Can’t wait for the playoffs when he comes in to close games. The good news is Yankees fans have a built in curse to scream at him.

Anthony Rendon – 0-for-2 as he was activated. Angels should make a deal with Rendon. If he wants to play, he has to pay for the at-bats. So, they can pay him to do nothing — as they’ve been doing for years — or he pays them to hit. Let’s see if he really wants to play.

Miguel Rojas – Will undergo wrist surgery. He ends the year with a 6/9 statline, which isn’t nearly as sexy as it looks.

Jesus Luzardo – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 3.32. Marlins out here telling people Bruce Willis was dead the whole time. Ya know, playing spoiler. I just thought of something sad; Bruce Willis is going to be gone, and we’re going to be able to watch him in The Sixth Sense playing dead. Creep City!

Bryan De La Cruz – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 13th homer, 2nd homer this week, and hot schnmotato and, yes, he’s exactly the kind of guy I’m going to like a little too much next year.

Triston McKenzie – 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.96. I cannot wait for the 127-pound Strong Bean McKenzie throwing in the playoffs with a national audience. Peoples’ minds always blow the first time they see a praying mantis throw a fastball.

Evan Longoria – Out for the year with a fractured thumb. Possibly the worst possible injury for him, because he’s gonna need that thumb to hitch out of town.

Joe Musgrove – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 2.93. If I’m the Padres, I’m saving anything else wonderful from their starters for the playoffs, and throwing like six relievers the next two days. Or I guess Sean Manaea is as good as throwing garbage to wolves.

Tony Gonsolin – 2 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 2.14 as he was activated from the IL. Ha! Regression! Finally!

Hunter Renfroe – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 29th homer. You know what Scooby Doo would say, “Please get to 30 homers!” Wait, that’s not right.

Christian Yelich – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 14th homer. Just when the Brewers needed it to get eliminated! (Though, I guess if he hit 40 homers, and was MVP-like again, they could’ve used that more, maybe.)

Kyle Schwarber – 2-for-3 and his 45th and 46th homer. It’s Schwammer time during the month of Schwtober!

Bryson Stott – 3-for-3 and his 10th homer, and he’s been smoking hot lately. Excuse me, Stott schmotato alert!

Aaron Nola – 6 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 2 hits, zero walks, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.25. Amongst other things, Bdon and I pant over how much we’re going to like Nola next year on this week’s podcast.

Bailey Ober – 5 IP, 2 ER, 3 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.21. It’s Schwtober, we established that. It’s not Obertober. Do you need a new calendar?

Rich Hill – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.27. Not bad for a guy who first learned the game from Abner Doubleday.

Matt Barnes – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 4.42, as he gets his 7th save. Addressing this from all fantasy baseballers (<–my mom’s term!) to the Red Sox, please sign a closer this offseason.

Wander Franco – 3-for-4 and his 6th homer. Comatose Fantasy Baseball Guy, “Oh, man, how long was I knocked out? Wait, before you answer, Wander Franco just homered?! Six already?! What’s it, the first week of May? Is it still April?! Hey, where’s everyone going?”

Vidal Brujan – 0-for-4 as he was recalled from the minors. He helped lead the Triple-A Durham Bulls to their 2nd straight Triple-A National Championship. Not to rain on the parade in downtown Durham, but this is deceptively terrible news. It’s like being in the minors long enough to go 30/30. Um, great, but also, why are you in the minors long enough to achieve anything there?

Tyler Glasnow – 3 2/3 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 1.35. Gonna draft Glasnow and Severino in the same league next year and people are going to say it’s too risky, like next year is this year.

Hayden Wesneski – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.18 vs. Hunter Greene – 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 4.44. Don’t even know who’s starting today and tomorrow for the Cubs and Reds, but that’s a perfect Streamonator type move, because these are two teams who quit four months ago. When they’re checked out, you check in!

Starling Marte – Remains without a timetable. Has he tried Ikea? I got a little timetable there to place my alarm clock. It’s pretty sleek, and only took me five hours to put together.

Nelson Cruz – He saids he plans on playing next year. That’s the kind of commitment I love to see. Let’s get him in an early draft with us and the Razzball crew! Wait, he plans on playing fantasy baseball or real baseball? Real?! Oh, Nelson, come on. This is why I’m for term limits.

Jack Suwinski – 1-for-2 and his 19th homer. This might be trying to fit a schmotato peg in a schmohawk hole, but Suwinski is the type to hit homers in multiple games in a row.

Albert Pujols – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 24th homer, 703 homers and takes sole possession of 2nd on the career RBIs list. Now has one more homer since August 14th than Aaron Judge (16 homers), and this one is legit hilarious: Pujols has 17 homers since August 10. The White Sox team leader has 17.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 1-for-3 and his 32nd homer, hitting .273. Cake Batter doesn’t even have 100 RBIs. Not entirely under his control, but that’s one way to take a step back.

Jose Berrios – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.23. *stops cutting out magazine letters for a second* “Ma, Berrios had one good start this year, are we still going to kidnap him for crimes he committed against our fantasy team?”

Felix Bautista – Hit the 15-day IL. Smart, just in case twelve magical days appear between Tuesday and Wednesday. If the O’s get themselves in position for a save, it should be Dillon Tate’s job.

Javier Baez – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 17th homer, and 2nd homer in the last four games. Hey, homey, you can hit 30 homers in the last two games and I still will never draft you again.

Julio Rodriguez – 3-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI as he was activated from the IL. The Word of the Day is coalesce, as in, “Juan Soto went from being Sexy Dr. Pepper to Cola-Less; please Jul-Rod save my season.”

This question might be too little, too late for tonight, but I have one move left and I need a stolen base or two.

Are there any teams (or players) who will still be swiping bags tomorrow? Should I target a Padre (Kim?) or a Phillie (Stott?)? Or someone else who has been recently swipe-happy (McCarthy, Baddoo, Estrada, Hamilton?)???

The Brewers Sept and Oct schedule included games with the following opponents:

Col (3)
SF (2)

I also read that their bullpen allowed the winning run to score in 11 games in the 8th inning or later after the Hader trade. 15 total blown saves since the Hader trade (Aug 1). Not that Hader was great in SD, but man that is rough.

Are you starting doubleheader Meneses @NYM v. Carrasco/Walker over Ohtani @OAK v. Irvin? Only other spots he slots in would be other doubleheader options Alonso and J.Rod.

Grey,

Thank you for all of your help, as always. I (finally) won my most competitive fantasy league this year and definitely have you to thank for transforming my way of thinking, and for providing answers to questions throughout the year. Can’t wait to see what 2023 has in store for all of us.

My only other comment today…I assume based on your write-up that having Luis Severino stashed on my IL as a round 30 keeper sounds like a no brainer to you? I have other guys like Framber and Wheeler at round 5 or 6 values, but the FA/round 30 value seems pretty insane.

Domingo German @TEX tomorrow, do you think they let him go 6+ because the Yanks have so much time off before they start the playoffs it won’t make much sense to limit him? They let Severino go 7 last night so maybe that’s an indicator?

Last two days of h2h. Tied at 5-5, but he has the tiebreaker. I’m ahead in 4 out of 5 pitching categories (all but wins) and trying to poach SBs to eke out a 6-4 win.

Here’s the rub: I can throw one more starter out there between today and tomorrow: Taijuan. He can throw three more (Rodon, German, Kelly) and I think he has one more add left. I’m up by 40 strikeouts, ahead on ERA by 2 points, and ahead on WHIP by about 0.15. Do I send Taijuan out there today or bench him, and I guess same question for my two closers, Clase and Jansen?

Yes, it’s a daily league. That said since my closers are Clase and Jansen, there’s a good chance they both sit tomorrow if their teams are playing for nothing. So I’m leaning towards starting my closers because they **probably** can’t cost me ERA or Whip even with one bad outing unless his guys are dealing no-hitter type stuff?

One of my favorite parts of last evening’s baseball was when Bill Schroeder, color guy for the Brewers, watched Corbin Carroll get plunked in the head with a Brent Suter fastball. Suter was visibly upset.

Schroeder remarked, “When a batter gets hit in the head, it’s just as bad for the pitcher.”

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say the guy getting hit in the head with a baseball is undoubtedly worse off than the guy throwing it.

In order for me to lose, the second place team needs to:
Beat the team he is tied with in HR’s. Then, make up 40 total bases against an abandoned team, 5 saves, or 27 RBIs. He needs to make up .007 in BA and .017 in whip.

I would also need to lose my 1 steal lead, my .017 whip lead, or my 2 save lead.

I’m definitely the favorite, but I have had such obscenely bad luck in that league, compared to my opponent’s obscenely good luck, that I’m not taking anything for granted.

I generally don’t like to ascribe the good performances of other managers to luck, but when you are streaming Chad Kuhl at Coors and getting great starts, and needing RBIs and you pick up Jon Berti who knocks in 3 for you, that’s luck.

Awesome!!

a. Signed up a few pitchers for Wednesday’s finale. Kept a few bench bats in case some guys don’t play, but will drop them too for who ever is available. Never would have guessed pitchers who won yesterday would win.

b. Dropped a lot of guys for today’s multiple double headers (Tex-NYY and Det-Sea). Couldn’t get myself to sign up Marwin Gonzalez, he’ll hit 4 grand slams tonight I am sure.

c. George Carlin quote of the day for October 4, 2022

‘The two big mistakes were the belief in a sky god – that there’s a man in the sky with ten things he doesn’t want you to do and you’ll burn for a long time if you do them – and private property, which I think is at the core of our failure as a species. That’s the source of my indignations, my dissatisfactions, however it comes out on stage. I feel betrayed by the people I’m part of, these creatures, these magnificent creatures.’

Hoping the Baez owner drops him in the offseason so I can draft him. His September splits were very encouraging albeit over 100 at bats at .310/.530/.867 with 5 HRs, 16 RBI and 1 SB. Where do you see Baez getting drafted next year? (keep in mind he will only be SS eligible, no 2B or DH)

Grey the White! Long time since I’ve commented but I’m still grinding away. No not that kind of grinding.

Some of I favorite nuggets are found in your write ups at the end of the year as you talk about next year. I use it to target trades in the dynasties. I would LOVE to see a piece like ‘off season trade targets’ in a couple of weeks. But with a catchier title!

Yesterday in one yahoo public league I actually started Musgrove, Aaron Nola, Luzardo, Severino, and Patrick Sandoval. That’s 31.2 innings of 43 K’s, 3 wins, zero earned runs and 0.55 of whip. It’s been a frustrating year, but that was fun!

On another team, I head into the last 2 days with a 2 point lead over 2nd place on a team I drafted Tatis, Wander, Teoscar, Alonso, Freddy Peralta, Tyler O’Neill, and India in my first 7 rounds. How!? Because of you mostly, but it just shows you gotta keep grinding all season.

I’m 99% convinced not to draft a SP until round 8 or 9 next year. I ended with Musgrove, Cease and McClanahan on most teams as my SP2.

Thanks for all of your write ups. I greatly appreciate it.

Hi Grey,

Thanks for all the help this year

I’m in the finals of my 16 man dynasty league and it’s a street fight. I’m down to 2 starts while my opponent still has 6 left. Killing him in Ks and Wins, QS is too close, he’s more likely to win ERA, and the difference in WHIP right now is .001

I have Manaea, Cobb and DeGrom left. Best streamers left are Assad, Winder, Falter, Heasley, so hardly an option. Leaning towards starting the first two because I see no way DeGrom pitches more than a couple innings. Thoughts?
