The Padres began this year by lifting their brown, monk robe they purchased from Macy’s in the Dan Brown collection and showed their first twig of the prospect tree they have cloaked underneath.  Luis Urias started the year with them, looked as good as the propsblock who’s in front of him, Ian Kinsler, which is to say not good, then didn’t play much and was sent down.  Was it too soon for him?  No, he had a ten-game slump and wasn’t given a opportunity.  Now, Luis Urias is killing minor league pitching (14 HRs, 6 SBs, .346/.439/.681 in 223 plate appearances), and the Padres said Urias will be up this week.  Hopefully, that means Kinsler is benched or DFA’d, because he’s like when you underestimate a fart and need to change your pants. Urias is a solid all-around bat, think .300 hitter, with some light power and speed.  He’s young though, which means he might need some patience, so remain calm.  For now, I will call him, Zen Bobrist.  I would grab him if you’re struggling at MI to see if he can catch fire and you can master Zen and the Art of MI Maintenance. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Robinson Chirinos – Fun fact!  In a stunt marketing campaign, General Mills paid a family to live on a remote island for 28 years and only eat cereal, they called it Robinson Cheerios.  As for Chirinos, he’s been close to a top 5 catcher in fantasy on the year, according to the Player Rater.

Garrett Cooper – Was thisclose to making Garrett Cooper the lede buy this week, and, really, you can’t get closer than thisclose, unless you change font size, which only a genius can do, and I can barely spell genius.  Only reason why you’re not owning Cooper is because his overall numbers don’t look great, but he’s done almost his entire crushing of pink cookies in the backseat of a jeep in the last two weeks.

Marwin Gonzalez – I’ve owned Marwin for the better part of a month in my RCL league, and have also dropped about 20 points in the standings in that time so Marwin can eat a d*ck!  Though, I think Wheeler, Paddack, Corbin and an array of other guys are to blame and not Marwin.  Marwin should still eat a d*ck!  Maybe a nice orange-glazed d*ck.  By the way, my U key keeps coming up as an asterisk for some reason.  I need help from the genuis bar.

Brandon Dixon – If you look at our 7-day Player Rater (yes, we have one of those too), Dixon has been a top 100 bat.  Just don’t abbreviate his name, Bra-Dix, that’s an NSFW subreddit.

Brandon Lowe – Lil Jon at his fantasy draft, “Get Lowe!  To the window, to the wall–”  Lil Jon’s cousin, Medium-sized Bill, who likes to mansplain, “It’s actually pronounced ‘Lau.'”

Scott Kingery – I gave you my Scott Kingery fantasy about three days before you should’ve started owning him, which was two weeks ago.  If you’re just picking him up now, let me ask you something, “When a doctor hits your knee to check your reflexes, do you kick randomly three weeks later?”

Brian Anderson – Even though Anderson’s owned in 25% more leagues than Cooper, I like Cooper better, which is not saying I don’t like Anderson.  I know, it’ll make you feel like a real man to grab the guy I like more, but it’ll make you even manlier to grab both guys I like.  Sorta like when you apply that new lotion you bought, Stench Press.  “This lotion is so much better than that lotion my wife bought me, Masculinité sans Toxicité.”

Willy Adames – Random Name Drop Alert!  My grandfather grew up with Don Adams and they used to play cards together once a week, before Don went out to Hollywood and landed the role in Get Smart.  With that said, Willy is not related (as far as I know).

Kevin NewmanCole Tucker went for $326 FAAB in one of my leagues.  I bid $326 and lost him to a team just below me in the standings.  At the time, I thought I couldn’t be any unluckier.  It turns out that it’s not only better to be lucky than good, but sometimes you can’t even appreciate one’s luck at the time.  Damn, I’m out here just sprinkling wisdom into the air for free (minus the fifteen minutes it takes you to click around the banner ads.  Terrible segue!  You could buy ad-free subscription.  It’s good for the season. It’s the cost of one cup of coffee — if the coffee place is in LA.  Seriously, I paid $8 for a coffee the other day.  I’m about to move to Ohio.  Why does it feel like I went from talking about Newman to writing a diary entry?  Dear Diary, narrating my life to an inanimate object has its charms.)

Yordan Alvarez – Told you to buy Yordan about two weeks ago, then followed that up with my Yordan Alvarez fantasy.  I am a giving tree!

Bryan Reynolds – Just gave you my Bryan Reynolds fantasy.  It was written without a lot of the ishkabibble.

Jorge Soler – I’m gonna lump Avisail Garcia into this blurb, because they are one in the same, in that they are not just buys, but they are top 30 outfielders on the year, according to the Player Rater.  In fairness to reality, they are both owned in 100% of RCL leagues while being owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues.  The best and the brightest over there!

Ramon Laureano – I can’t see the name Ramon without seeing Nomar.  Which reminds me, if you played the last 10 years of my life backwards, it would look like an impressive weight loss story.

JaCoby Jones – Not to be a birther, but 100% the capped C in his first name is a typo on his birth certificate.  One hundred percent.  No one can tell me different.

Lance Lynn – And Framber Valdez.  Double dipping both of these guys, because they’re not straight Streamonator calls at this point.  They are own until further notice. Or OUFN, of course.

Tanner Roark – Now this is a Streamonator call.  Like the one it makes to Target to see if it can be put on the phone with any appliances that also look sad.

Mike Fiers – This is another Streamonator call.  “Put me on with anything then, except a smart remote, they always make me feel foolish.”

Daniel Hudson – Could’ve also listed Joe Biagini, and, you’re never gonna believe this, I think I just did.  Pretty sneaky, sis!

Ian Kennedy – As you can imagine, I’m not listing the best closers here; I am simply giving some guys who are barely owned.  Well, some guys who are barely owned and might get saves.

Roenis Elias – There’s better closers in baseball, in the traditional sense.  Though, Roenis might be the best closer in a one-run game when in the opponent’s home park, because you don’t even have to finish the 9th inning.  One, maybe two outs then Elias gives away the game.  Wow, this is an extremely positive take on Elias!  Any hoo!  Elias appears to be the M’s closer for now with Strickland experiencing a setback.

SELL

Charlie Morton –  One quick side note, in the video at the top of the page, Anime Grey suggests you sell Chris Paddack.  I don’t disagree with that little cartoony looney (avoiding trademark infringerments), but I need to record the cartoon voice a week ahead, so I recorded that stuff last week.  It’s still true on selling, but his value is now at an all-time low, so it’s likely not the best time.  Okay, back to our regular scheduled program!  I don’t dislike Charlie Morton. However,  Morton hasn’t thrown more than 172 IP ever, and not more than 170 IP since 2011. Last year, he broke down towards the end of the year and had a 4+ ERA in July and August.  If you can sell Morton, now is the time. Am I selling him for the new audiobook, Gilbert Gottfried’s Guided Meditation? No, but I would look at our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.

    aha what a day for me to roll into the message board late. All this Dahl and Ohtani talk, where have i been?!

    A) If Angels had anything close to respectable pitching staff, I’d really be enjoying this season now. Ohtani is just now coming out of his extended spring training from the TJ recovery. Get ready for an Ohtani that doesn’t have spend time thinking about pitching, just focusing on hitting, going to be fun. May – .250/.333/.363, June – .341/.391/.805 … I’ll save the rest for next week’s article :)

    B) nice that Dahl is trying to steal, also his exit velo is climbing and wOBA is climbing since i wrote post on him, so we likely haven’t seen him peak out yet.

    C) Nola is the subject for this week’s dive

      A. Love to see him forget pitching completely

      B) Hope so!

      C) Awesome! Looking forward to it!

        Also! As a balance to all that SD shade anime Grey is throwing (since i’m from in between them); SD is LA without the polution, gang violence, pretentious celebs, and freeways are used for driving instead of parking. so there! LOL

      follow up on my Q from the daily post – where does Hunter Dozier rank among Kingery and Senzel?

        Put him last for now, until I see he’s healthy… A torso injury isn’t great

        • William Hung says:
          (link)

          On the pitchers side – Heaney will be a FA tomorrow, how should I rank him along with Framber and Lynn. I would drop my streamer spot for one of these guys. Also, do you think I should add any of the other 2 guys over the following:

          -Flaherty, Hendricks, Marquez, Fried, Lester

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Framber, Heaney, but last two are based on matchups — I’m almost out on Lester, but holding for now

            • William Hung says:
              (link)

              He’s a homebody – I think he’ll dominate against the CHW @ home next start

                    (link)

                    Just so I understand correctly, you rank the pitchers as:
                    -Framber, Heaney, and Lynn

                    Drop my streamer for Framber, and then maybe drop Lester for Heaney? So Lynn is the last on the list?

    Hey Grey
    I have Tucker on my bench like forever.
    in a 10 team keeper league. (can keep for 3 years)
    would you drop him for Urias.
    I can’t stash both
    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yes

  7. Wonx says:

    Would you stash Urias as a bench bat over Marwin? I don’t really need the multi-position eligibility based on who the rest of my batters are.

    • Grey

      Hold

    Hey gray,
    Who’s for real, Swanson or Kingery?
    12 team keeper league.

    1. Who’s the drop:

    Domingo S
    Segura
    JoRam
    Olson

    2. Think JoRam turns it around?

    3. There is no 3, just an observation that Hiura’s demotion now seems to be clearly about service time.

  10. KrazyIvan says:

    I see Kevin Newman as a lite beer, less filling but taste great version of Whitt Merrifield. Realistically he might hit .290, steal 15 bases and score 40 runs the rest of season batting in front of Reynolds, Marte and Bell. If you play H2H where Ks count then you can do a lot worse then Newman.

    uhhhhhhh,

    so this guy in my league is tryna get rid of trout, i cant believe im saying this, but he just offered me Trout and Pineda for Hoskins and Morton.

    is this some sort of reverse psychology? did he get possessed? or am i missing something?

      Both

        OK – I’m rolling the dice here with Fried, Hendricks, and Gibson – hopefully I finish the night with 21 IP, 0 ERA, and 25 Ks

    What are your feelings on Grichuk in a standard 12 team these days? Would you drop him for Newman, Moran, B Anderson, Frazier, or Piscotty (don’t care about position)?

    Looking to add Urias as a bench bat while lowering my ERA and WHIP in my Roto league. Probably won’t happen until he’s called up, but who would you drop for Urias?

    *C – Alfaro
    *!B – Voit
    *2B – Moustakas
    *3B – Guerrero
    *SS – J Polanco
    *OF – Harper

    *UT – Tatis
    *UT – Alvarez

    *DL – Judge

    *SP – Bauer
    *SP – Corbin
    *SP – Paxton
    *SP – Marquez

    *SP – Soroka
    *SP – Framber Valdez
    *RP – Hader
    *RP – Doolittle
    *RP – Kimbrel
    *DL – Clevinger

    My question is how do I make room for Judge & Clevinger, plus I would like to add Urias. Thinking J Ramirez has to go, also F Valdez depending on his next start & maybe go naked at Catcher. Trading is not big in my league. Any thoughts & recommendations would be appreciated.

    NL-Only H2H

    A) I picked up Kinsler for Coors this weekend. Yadiel Rivera (12 HRs and 11 SBs in AAA) was called up and is in the starting lineup. Should I go ahead and see if I can get a little Rookie Nookie?

    B) I know that E. Diaz can’t totally be blamed for the other night with the downpour in NY, but are we stashing Lugo soon?

        I’d say Lugo ranks among the top holds guys the way he’s been pitching lately, or in the similar vein of how you were talking about having a guy like Moronta & Nick Anderson like 3 podcasts ago for ratio help

    Grey, in a 10 team keeper league, roto, what kind of pitcher could I target if I send either Moncada or Victor Robles? I need some SP help.

    In the FA I have Yonny and Lynn available. Not sure if I should just go for any or both of them.

    Rest of the staff is Verlander, Clevinger, Fried, Giolito and Buehler

    Grey, Happy Flag Day, and not the Cubs “W” Flag,

    Which would you drop in 10-team H2H, to pick up “Air” Yordan,

    1) Senzel
    2)Conforto
    3) C. Walker
    or could I drop a SP for him,
    4) Maeda
    5) Lucchessi

    Thanks.

        That you may have changed your mind on who you would rather have or if they are both sells

    Also where did you see that the Padres are going to call him up this week? Been trying to find that

    Thanks!

      Sure, I think this week for Urias

    Gibson spins a beautiful 8 inning shutout innings and Baldelli didn’t have the balls to let him go for the shutout. Only 88 pitches.

    Marsnick hurt… could this open the window for Kyle tucker or do you think more Fisher?

      More Fisher prolly, but I’d grab Tucker if I had room, just in case

    Nice to see Dull trying to keep pace with Freese! Possibly trading my Air Yordan for Trout if he keeps this up.

    Goddamn Hendricks – so the 20/20 vision call was to bench both Fried and Hendricks tonight

    Thank the high heavens that I also streamed Kyle Gibson

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, it’s hard to bench those guys tho

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        Well now Fried is gonna be dropped for Framber. I saw in another posting, you said Morton over Marquez – does this mean that you are much lower on Marquez compared to the preseason? I’ve debated whether or not to start Marquez tomorrow now that I’m looking like I’m going to be tied in Ls going into the weekend. I’m leaning towards benching his A$$

        BTW, my opponent has Sale, Jose Suarez, Wheeler, and Quintana going for him rest of the week.

        I’m probably looking at losing most if not all pitching categories with my ratios in the gutter.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Think you have to bench German at home… I still like him but he’s struggling right now, no reason to force it

  83. BleacherN says:
    (link)

    Can you please help.me pick the top 3 SP out of:

    Fried
    Yonny
    Matz
    Strahm
    Lynn
    Miley
    Sonny Gray (kind of surprised with his ERA, FIP and xFIP

    • Grey

      Matz, Lynn, Yonny

        whoa Sonny Gray over Matz? I know you love Matz so damn… Gray has been available in my league all year

          nevermind, i thought the first order was yours and not bleacher’s

    Yo Grey,

    Looking for an upgrade at OF in my 14tm H2H pts lg. Currently have Eaton, available are Soler, Kingery, Dee, Schwarber, Renfroe.

    Limited moves per week (3), lose Canning for a stream spot? He’s been alright but having the flexibility would be nice.

    Great writeup as usual! Always look forward to Buyday!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Thanks! Kingery

    Grey I need some help please

    12 team 6×6 daily moves league with ops and holds the extra categories. We use qs instead of wins.

    My roster
    C Ramos, 1b Bellinger 2b Baez ss machado 3b muncy ci Alonso mi tatis of Acuña benintendi Domingo Santana Hoskins mallex util Dahl
    Bench Robles il didi

    Sp snell Bieber flaherty fried canning
    Rp c mart pressly leclerc Chapman Blake Parker
    Bench paddack and kimbrel
    Il strahm and tailon

    I’m in first in every hitting category except steals. I’m second there. I am getting crushed in pitching both to ineffective pitching (all my starters except canning have been awful as of late) and that I’m using to spots for paddack and kimbrel in a daily moves league. My question is would you do either of these.

    1 cut Parker to activate strahm and keep Robles on my bench and stash didi on my il. I don’t need to activate didi based on my standings in hitting.
    2 cut Parker, strahm and v Robles to activate didi and try to pick up a pitcher like Framber or Pablo Lopez.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      2. Framber or Pablo

    Hey Grey!

    Do you like vogelbach over any of these guys? Thanks!

      Grey says:

    14-team OBP 5×5 roto…

    2B & MI = B.Dozier and Odor
    SS=Trea Turner

    OF=Acuna, Jimenez, Robles, and Trout…and my 5th spot right now is Kingery (Elig at 3B/OF/SS)
    I started Moran (Elig at 2B/3B but I have Vlad at 3B and Devers at CI) over G.Cooper this week at U so Cooper and DeShields were on the bench.

    Now I see someone dropped Harrison Bader. Is he good enough to take that OF spot and move someone out?

    Bode, Freese, and Todd Frazier are also available and have been as valuable as some of my guys like Turner, Kingery, and even some other teams’ studs like Pete Alonso, Voit, Mondesi, and Bellinger over the last 4 weeks.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Can try Bader over DeShields

    In a 12 teamer with this staff, would you trade Mazara for MadBum? Or do you have some confidence in the back end of my staff (streamers??)

    Berrios, Castillo, Bieber, Hill, Kucchesi, Yonny, Framber
    IL: Carrasco

    My OF would consist of Bryant, Hoskins, Acuna, Soler and Myers.

    Thank you

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Sure, I’d go Bumgarner

      Redraft? Shallow? Seems okay, but you are paying a lot

      • Mike says:

        12 team keeper, Maybe just Pence and Morton? Riley can be kept for $5

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          In a keeper it’s terrible, just Pence and Morton is fine, don’t send Riley

          • Huang says:
            (link)

            Would you drop Kike Hernandez for Colin Moran, Brandon Dixon or JP Crawford ?

            No specific positional need.

            • Grey

              Grey says:

    1) Regression fairies hit Soroka hard. Trying to trade him but no one will bite. Would you consider picking up lance Lynn for Soroka? Lynn has been pitching really well his last 6 or so starts.

    2) Is it worth holding W Davis? He only has 8 saves.. blew his first last night.

    3) start Marquez today? Does he even have a QS at home this season?

    4) Thx!

    Man, Yordan is really driving up his faab price this week!

    In a 12 team $100 faab league, you think $25 is enough to snag him? (I have 43 left). Most top prospect guys go for low to mid teens in mid season faab, though Riley went for 21…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Are there zero dollar bids?

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        No – $1 bids and up only

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          But free waivers after someone passes through or no?

          • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
            (link)

            Sorry my bad – nothing is free in this league, any free agent pickup (whether on waivers or passed through etc) has to be at least $1.

            So basically, I could really use Alvarez (like everyone else), but need a reserve of cash for unanticipated needs/injury that might come up as the season goes along. So if I spend 25 here I would have $18 left.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              You know your league better than I, is $18 enough? That sounds low for rest of the season… I don’t know, maybe $21 to be conservative? Unless you feel like you can be okay, then go like $26

    Encarnacion to the Yankees. Already led the American in HRs so pretty huge upgrade from him from Safeco to the band box in the bronx. He’s already at 21 homers. Projected HR total the rest of the way?

    My starting lineup next week.

    Grey, need your thoughts for my weekly lineup set for next week, 12 team redraft roto.

    1. Choose one. I know according to son it’s Marco. I would have to lose either Paddock, M. Perez or Lopez to make it happen. Is it worth it and who?
    M. Gonzales 19.9 KC
    M. Perez 3.6 @ KC
    P. Lopez -0.2 @ SL.

    2. Same league, 2bm. Choose one, lose one?
    Chavis
    Bote
    Lourdes.

    Urias, Keston H., C. Hernandez out there to get. Would have to lose one guy above and stash someone. Your picks please. Need overall help with SB’s more of a priority.

    Framber and Yonny have been great pickups for me. However, they both draw the Yankees this week in New York. In a h2h league that requires 40 innings, I am not in a position to simply bench them both.

    1. Which of the two would you think has more long term value?

    Hey Grey.

    Who would you want in a shallow 10-teamer in order of preference between Gary Sanchez, Max Muncy and Yordan ROS for counting stats.

    I currently own Yordan and looking for a possible upgrade. I have an offer of Sanchez and Muncy from two different teams for my Corbin. Corbin is the SP I’m least enthused about right now and his xStats aren’t looking good. Was also thinking of countering with Morton for an even better bat. I have a GS cap in my league and don’t need 7 starters, but if these bats aren’t worth moving Corbin I’ll roll with 7 and drop Yordan when Clevinger comes off IL.

    Josh Bell and Corbin too much a price to pay for Bellinger or is it fair? Have some doubts about Bell’s power being sustainable throughout the entire season. Not that you can expect him to hit 10 HR every month, but he already seems to have cooled considerably this month.

    20 team h2h dynasty where i need at all times during season to have at least 9 TEX players in active or DL slots (NA’s don’t count towards this). pretty much any stat in yahoo added, including defensive stuff. y.alvarez coming up and some DL guys coming back soon has me in a weird spot and probably very much needing to trade away a good bat (or drop somebody like desmond, which would be silly as well). my only positions that could likely be improved by trading away an OF would be at 3B (profar, and i only traded to get him at end of last season since he was a TEX guy, but i also got back buttrey in that) or SP (archer and darvish have both done quite badly this year)
    C streamer
    1B whit (2B/CF/RF)
    2B odor (TEX 1)
    SS andrus (T 2)
    3B profar (most IF slots)
    LF y.alvarez
    CF desmond (1B/LF)
    RF blackman (CF)
    util (1) eloy (LF)
    BN (we have 4 total BN slots and at most one of them can be used for a pitcher): dannys antana (1B/2B/CF TEX 3), choo (LF/RF TEX4), mazouza (RF TEX 5)
    DL: stanton (LF/RF), gallo (1B/all OF TEX 6), big willie (LF, TEX 7)
    NA (10): jp martinez, l.taveras, valera (if he shoots up prospect boards the CLE owner is always an active trade partner), x.edwards, varsho, b.thompson, brujan
    SP: archer, darvish, ryu, morton, skaggs, j.urias (in SP slot when i was able to WW d.castillo, dropped for some reason, which is insane when 7×20 = 140 RP are owned, many owners try to put more SP in those slots but unless they are good SP in RP slots i’d much rather have a deep bullpen as we have stats like relief appearances/relief wins as well as holds, do have 35 min innings per week)
    RP (7): buttrey, martin (TEX 8), leclerc (TEX 9, was able to trade kela + crick for him to PIT, at about leclerc’s lowest price in 2 years, PIT wanted more in preseason and end of last season), pressly, wittgren, romo
    DL (5): morrow, l.farrell (TEX 10, broke his face in preseason and makes for an easy TEX stash till somebody else gets hurt, in this league we can add directly from FA to DL slots without dropping anybody else, which makes player minimum stashing helpful at times)
    NA: winn, crouse (more TEX prospect stashes, i used to have more good SP prospects stashed, but longer term i probably really need to have guys that might be useful TEX players)

    1. could do eloy for son of donald + probably draft pick stuff, but i’m assuming this is easy hard no (and i’d just drop profar if i obtained donaldson)
    2. could do blackman for paxton, if this was done i’d be then moving one of archer or darvish to either the same owner with paxton or another guy who has HORRIBLE SP and actually said he’d want darvish and/or archer. blackman is clearly better right now than paxton BUT as you can see by my roster simply has FAR too many OF guys when gallo/stanton come back, i’ll have whit/gallo/stanton/eloy/blackman/desmond/choo/mazouza for a max total of 5 starting slots (including the 1B whit or gallo or desmond can fit into). mazouza in a vacuum could probably be dropped, but not when i’m TEX and have this wrinkle to roster requirements. i’d assume long term giving away eloy/y.alvarez could look really stupid. blackman, meanwhile probably won’t be high level producing for all that much longer and the steals left the building. as far as paxton’s often DL stays we have a lot of DL slots, so this is alleviated.

      1. No

      2. These are the best trades you can do? Seems okay for Pax sine you’re so loaded at OF

        i set up a message board post a week or so ago and said i’m seeing what i can get for moving out one of alvarez,blackman, eloy (i basically can’t move choo or mazouza, desmond i didn’t think to ask people about, i doubt i’d get much for desmond anyway though) with the idea of me getting back either a 3B or SP (my only real weak spots of any kind). i talked to 4 owners, one of which had really only donaldson that fits what i’m trying to do. another had nothing even that good but he’ll be willing to trade something for darvish/archer (i will move one of them for draft pick upgrade if i go the paxton route, since i’d have to drop one of archer/darvish (or skaggs) if that happened). a good team is the one willing to move paxton for blackman. i will go investigate which owners would be a good fit for me that may not be reading the message board (guys with either multiple good 3B and/or horrible OF weakness at at least one of LF/RF/CF, or maybe a horrible OF spot but really good SP depth). nobody was yet willing to give up much worth even mentioning for alvarez and his upside is probably close to eloys’s long term. earlier i tried to see if i could get minor (TEX, however i’m hearing he probably has a decently high chance of being traded) but the owner wanted ryu (no thanks on that one).

        just got a new offer, blackman for w.ramos + keuchel, guessing paxton is a better deal here though. ramos would be a good enough catcher to not stream it (there are still decent catchers to stream daily though, murphy/kelly/iannetta (when he plays), r.perez etc.

        • jason batteiger says:
          (link)

          2 more possibles
          3. blackman for ramos + keuchel (this one has actually been sent by the opp)
          4. jose ram + something (draft pick maybe) for blackman? maybe jose ram + asscab + draft pick for blackman + profar

          • jason batteiger says:
            (link)

            5. blackman + profar (or i just drop him later) + one of darvish/archer + draft pick for corbin (or odorizzi) + suarez?
            6. blackman for corbin alone, trade archer or darvish for draft pick(s)
            7. blackman + something for senzel
            8. blackman for marquez + something or mostsuckass + something
            9. blackman + profar for muncy + something else (draft pick probably, maybe turnbull)
            10. blackman for wheeler + little something as i’d be giving back probably one of skaggs/archer/darvish here unless i could move one of them first for probable draft pick upgrade to somebody else.
            11. blackman for minor or maybe minor + heaney (give back 2 of archer/darvish/skaggs)
            12. blackmon for minor + draft pick (send out one of skaggs/darvish/archer for some value, this is the LAA owner, might want skaggs)
            13. blackman for berrios or giolito (get value for archer/darvish/skaggs from somebody)
            14. blackmon for l.castillo

            i’ve sent emails out to all the owners to at least see how many of these are just ruled out and/or would be accepted. first off, which of these would you just not do?

        Back to back blown saves. Should I wait it out with him?

          see: the meh above. meanwhile do you have other closers you could obtain by dropping him? that would be relevant if so.

    Should I have blind faith in SON with regards to Kikuchi this week? Apparently it’s writing little hearts around his name on the trapper keeper. Set to face KC & BAL both @ home

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      sounds like what almost has to be the head guy in the 2 start streamer article from those matchups and that’s with me not even looking up how high the SON numbers are.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        yeah apparently they are very high according to the article

    Do you like Kendrick or Odor this week? Both have 7 home games.

    Do you like Laureano over either assuming Senzel is healthy and can play 2B this week? Thanks

      wow, if one of those weird/rare spots where a player NOT in yahoo has more positions, in yahoo only 3B/OF/CF but not 2B.
