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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Hey Grey – which side do you like in the trades below in a keeper league where you’re trying to win this year? My pitching is heavily weighted in the success of Ryu and Odorizzi and guys like that thanks to Nola, so want to try getting someone more bankable.

A.
$3 Ryu, $16 JDM, and J.Dyson
OR
$31 Scherzer $27 Springer $1 Caleb Smith

B.
Ryu JDM Dyson
OR
Scherzer $24 Harper Smith

Thanks!

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.

Thank you.

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?

BTW, heading to the sex farm in Durham, NC tomorrow to see the Bulls take on the Scranton Wilkes Barre Rail Riders. The past two nights the Rail Riders have had Judge and Stanton at the top of the order. Hopefully for Father’s Day they’ll be in the lineup tomorrow.

If you have Mookie Betts you should pick up Joc Pederson. That way you could easily remind yourself that it could always be worse.

Grrr… I’ve been running both with Springer out. My once 100+ tally is now an 87. Real reason, though, is the last two weeks of Marquez, Flaherty, Corbin, Fried, Caleb Smith, and Blake Parker.

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…

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.

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!

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.

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

Bench Robles il didi

Sp snell Bieber flaherty fried canning
Rp c mart pressly leclerc Chapman Blake Parker

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.
