Michael Conforto is a Buy.  A Mets hitter.  Long pause.  Hearing Dominick the Donkey on the radio.  Realizing that pause was until Christmas.  “Hey, chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw.  It’s Conforto, the fantasy baseball Buy donkey.  The Italian Christmas Fantasy Baseball Buy Donkey.  He plays for the Mets and you know what this means?  The label on the inside of his uni says they’re made in Queens.”  In the beginning of the season, Conforto looked like he was working with three-quarters of his ability.  So, who’s he, Confor?  Julius Caesar never came, saw and Confor’d, right?  The lawyers didn’t Confor with the judge before sentencing Conforto to three months of terrible hitting.  Confor the lousy hitting, stay for the fear of success?  Yes, but no.  What I think we’re going to hear this offseason is Conforto is going to say the first few months of the season, his shoulder was still bothering him, but, by the 2nd half, that started to ease.  On our last 7 day Player Rater, Conforto is top 15, and could be in store for a solid 2nd half if his injury is finally healed.  Now get the Italian Christmas Fantasy Baseball Buy Donkey!  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Mitch Garver – *you seeing Mitch Garver as the first Buy, you print out the page so you have a physical copy, then you burn this Buy, then you dial the phone*  “Hello, voodoo priestess who I met online, is there a way to remove something I’ve seen from my thoughts?”  I get it, Mitch Garver isn’t great in the traditional sense of the word great.  But he has hit well in the last week.

C.J. Cron – This is hilarious in a sad, ‘what are you people doing’ type way.  Cron is owned in as many leagues as Greg Bird.  Here’s a little cheatsheet for you.  Greg Bird has never been good for longer than two games in a row.  Cron has been good this whole season.

Yonder Alonso – He’s also owned in less leagues than Bird.  That makes sense if you read it backwards, so it says, “Common sense is dead.”

Robinson Cano – Likely going to be next week’s Buy lede if he’s still under 50% owned.  By the by, earlier this week, I said something like, Jonathan Schoop or Tanaka are definitely in the lead to be this week’s Buy ledes.  Yeah, well, I either underestimated or way overestimated you, because Tanaka is owned in 95% of leagues, which is way over the cut off to be included, and Schoop is owned in around 70% of leagues, which is also too many leagues (for this, not for reality in, uh, fantasy).  Oh, and Cano is in the video at the top of this page.  Watch it 56,000 times and earn me 56 cents!

Ian Happ – With Kris Bryant headed back to the DL, Happ should see more regular playing time.  Somewhere, Joe Maddon just laughed and penned Tommy La Stella into the lineup.

Jeff McNeil – Here’s what I said when he was called up, “You know who’s even more excited about seeing McNeil?  Asdrubal, because this almost certainly means he’s being traded.  Then again, the Mets might just bench McNeil.  That might be the more Mets thing to do.  Why do we care?  Jeff McNeil has looked more like Jeff Kent in the minors this year.  He has 19 HRs and a .342 average in Double and Triple-A.  Tri-A is PCL-aided, but he’s been hitting everything all year.  He’s not a tater tot, however, he’s 26 years old, so might be a Quad-A player who just finally figured out the minor leagues, but is too old to do the same in the majors.  I’d grab him in deeper mixed leagues and NL-Only for now.” And that’s me quoting me!  Oh, and in classic Mets fashion, McNeil sat for two straight games.  One thing we can say of the Mets is they are so Mets.

Maikel Franco – Franco’s brain up until two weeks ago:  Got myself a starting job and no worries in the world!  Franco’s brain the last two weeks:  What do you mean I might get traded to the Orioles?  I better hit!

Tim Beckham – Beckham’s brain inside of Maikel’s brain:  I don’t know how I got in here, or how I got on the Orioles, but get me out of both!

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. – Ted Williams once had multiple hit games for 127 games straight so Gurriel won’t ever break that streak, but Gurriel is going on over a week of multiple hits.

Cameron Maybin – You know how if you put the AC on in your Corolla, then within 25 minutes the car overheats and you have to then put the heater on for five minutes, which ruins your vibe completely, but then you can put the AC on again for 25 minutes and then heat and then AC and then heat and so on?  That’s Cameron Maybin.  He’ll get you a 2-for-3 with two steals, but then he needs to sit with a sore hammy for three games.

Alex Verdugo – I get the feeling he’s about to get traded somewhere where he will be able to play full-time, but, honestly, not sure where and for what kind of piece.  Maybe Ervin Santana?  Feels a bit rich, but the Dodgers could really use an arm.  Any hoo!  You now know what I’m thinking.  Let’s say you’re inside my brain, inside Tim Beckham’s, inside Maikel’s.  We are the Russian nesting dolls of galaxy brains.

Kole Calhoun – The Calhoun brothers are interesting.  One is hot and one is flashy, fun, not playing every day, not hitting when he does play, and might get demoted.  Which one do I want?  Sometimes logic doesn’t win out.

Willie Calhoun – Hey, Kole Calhoun’s blurb, how about you eat a D?!

Joc Pederson – This is a Hitter-Tron pick, just as it picks from discarded mufflers on which one is coming home with it tonight.

Kirby Yates – Is the new closer in San Diego, which may not be the case by Sunday, then Craig Stammen’s the next one in line, and if he’s gone too, then *tears up tickets, throws pieces of paper in the air*  I quit!

Anthony Swarzak – Not a joke, I’d love to know what the Mets are doing with their closer shituation.  Using one guy (Swarzak or Gsellman) for two innings every third day is legit goofy.  It’s like Mickey Callaway sees all the positive press Kevin Cash is getting for his ‘opener’ strategy, and is like, “I’m going to start something new, it’s called, ‘The Closer!'”  Assistant coach lightly tugs on Callaway’s sleeve, “Um, skip, um, there’s already something called a ‘Closer.'”

A.J. Minter – Don’t really expect much more from Vizcaino this year, but the Braves might trade for an arm — hey, Raisel, whatcha up to? — for now Minter seems to be the main man in the Braves’ pen.

Brad Brach – Fun fact!  The Orioles’ new closer’s nickname is also the last two days of the week when a girl starts the week by wearing seven bras and ends with only one, Bra-Bra.  (As my bumper sticker says, it makes sense if you don’t think about it too long!)

Roberto Osuna – Should be returning to the Jays’ closer job in a few weeks.  In his first game back, a pitcher on the opposing team should throw at a Jays player, so Osuna has to retaliate.  “But if I retaliate I’m going to have my probation revoked.  Being a piece of crap person is not as easy as it looks.”  That’s Osuna weighing his options.

Jace Fry – Just went over him this morning.  Use your scrolly finger and have at it!

Pedro Strop – Currently, the Cubs’ closer, and if they don’t trade for someone, he could be the closer until the end of September, or not even by Sunday.

Joey Lucchesi – This is a straight Stream-o-Nator call like the call it makes to City Hall to find out why it’s, “Missing:  A piece of me that makes me feel whole,” posters were taken down.

Joe Musgrove – This is also a Stream-o-Nator call.  “Is it allowable if I have the posters say, ‘Wanted:  A Friend For Chats?'”

SELL

Kris Bryant – Hate to do the flippity on the floppity of my feelings on a player.  I thought Bryant was past his injury, but obviously he’s not.  In my top 100 for the 2nd half (which got outdated faster than ABC’s love affair with the new Roseanne), I talk about how Kris Bryant might no longer be a top 50 player in the preseason next year.  Now I’m not sure he’s a top 75 player.  Oh, I do think he’ll be good value if he falls far enough, but– Enough about next year!  Bryant’s headed for a lost season, and I don’t mean he’ll be picked up by The Others.  If you can get anything with Bryant, using the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer or not, I would.  Yes, in a redraft, I’d even trade him for a Mike Greenwell rookie card with bubble gum stuck to the back.

In a 5×5 standard season-long roto league. Couple trade proposals I’ve received for Trout.

1. I give Trout for K. Davis and DeGrom

2. I give Trout for Yelich and Sale

My OF is currently Trout, Betts, Springer, Benintendi. My SP are Severino (been awful), Kluber (not much better than Severino of late), Nola, Cole, Verlander, Pax.

Do I do any of those deals or hold onto the fish?

The trade i was offered was this:

From me he wants: either Poncedeleon or minor league pitcher J.B. Bukauskas (HOU) and minor league SP Jason Groome (BOS)
From him I get: Minor League OF (HOU): Yordan Alvarez

Would you make the deal? If so, which pitcher with Groome should I offer?

Was hoping to hear back from Ralph but no such luck

Good morning, Grey!

I’m sitting Berrios against Boston today for obvious reasons. (He’ll of course twirl a gem now) But should I also be sitting Wheeler @ PIT against Musgrove? Wheeler’s been good lately but the Pirates have been putting up a lot of offense lately. Also… umm… Mets. Please advise.

@Grey: just lost devers yet again here too. ok, so drop kemp for goodwin, then i could grab one of these (mancini COULD move to CI slot here):
-martini (doesn’t play every day YET but has been stealing fowler’s at bats even against righties and IS hitting)
-buck choi (stealing half of cron’s playing time and hitting)
-lomo
– r.herrera
– brother of boneface
-v-mart (THAT almost made me throw up in mouth typing, is hitting, but can only play util now)
-lil nicky
-orangeman (back to hitting yet again, i’ve probably owned him at least 2 other times too)

player rater next 7 days doesn’t scream any of them (but would like martini somewhat IF he played more on a per game basis). valencia no lefties coming up, but is back to playing most days and is hitting, and due to alonso being off against nearly all lefties probably a good idea to nab a CI here, leaving only valencia/choi/lomo as the options.

Sorry Grey, one more. Blake Parker hasn’t had a safe since 1997. Wily Peralta or Osuna (honestly not sure I can do it but it does seem like the probably better pickup to win/feel not good picking up a shitbag). Brach is also out there.

Another option is grab a bench bat (I have none) with Altuve looking banged up and add Confirto or Margot (avg, power and SBs at a premium/needed) and already fostering Romo, Strop and Rodney as closers).

10 Team H2H.

My pitching falls apart as my hitting explodes. I want to trade for chris sale. This is a keeper/auction league, so sale was drafted at a price not worth keeping at. Snell I got for $1 and Mazara I got for $1. Do you think them two for sale is fair? Or add more? If you think I even should try. Other waiver adds I have can be kept for $5. I can keep 2 players and I want to still have great cheap ones next year. It is five we can keep total but I already have seater, and Thor as contracts… So I’d be able to keep 3 more. Suarez, Muncy, and Hoskins probably since they’re all only $5. Snell, corbin, and Mazara are good at $1 each too though..

@Grey: I can’t keep more then five.. I have to keep Thor and seage r. Since I have contracts with them. So I get to keep 3 more out of Mazara, Hoskins, Snell, suarez,muncy, Corbin, and they’re all under $5. Some are $1. So trading them for sale who is 60 or 50 I could win this year.
I just need to lower my era and get wins or saves.. lower my whip,and walks to strikout ratio would all but guarantee it.

@Grey: maybe I should trade Thor away for sale. Thor is only $22. Sale was around 50. Then I could keep Snell and 3 hitters. Because I can only keep five total. I have seage r and Thor under contracts. And I can now keep 3 more. Out of Suarez$5 , Snell $1, Muncy $5, Hoskins $6, mazara $1, and or Corbin$1. I can only keep 3 so maybe sell for a sale type, or trade Thor and make room for a keeper.

My second league is a Yahoo league. Kinda crappy 12 Team only 3 bench spots. Anywho the only player I would really consider dropping is Y Gurriel. Eloy Jimenez is available. I need some one like you to confirm my delusion-I should grab Eloy right? He’s going to be called up no?

@John Schwind: A chance to get a superstar but give up Yuli’s 6 HRs on the season? I dunno. Seems risky.

I mean, Eloy might not come up and might flame out if he does, but what is Gurriel giving you? I say go for it.

Hey Grey. Sorry if you got this question more than once. It doesn’t show up on my end when I click post. It’s another Judge scenario.

Would you trade Judge at this point for K. Davis or Carlos Carrasco?

LGJ just keeps hitting. Is it time to ride the hype train on Gurriel Jr? Which bat do I drop for him?

Kyle Tucker
Odor
Matt Chapman

I feel like if you walk Chris Davis you should automatically be pulled from the game. The dude can’t hit the side of a barn this season.

In related news, is Archer barely an every start play in shallow leagues?

The ironic thing about cron is that scosciapath sat him a lot, now cash is doing the same thing. Choi has been playing at crons’s expense a couple times a week. It would be even a crueler twist of fate if he is dealt to provide depth to a playoff team who can’t hit lefties.

NL only where guys that come over midseason to NL are bid on in message board in a 2 day window. it’s vickrey bidding so you can’t overbid, if you were to bid 100/100 you’d only pay 1 more than the 2nd highest bid. right now hamels is going for 56. OBP over AVG, net steals over steals, QS over wins, holds, total bases added. due to a bunch of people getting healthy lately i had to drop duggar and hanson just now. hanson hasn’t done much in a while. if marte party ends up on DL i might regret this.

1. E2 just showed up in system. somebody already bid 40. this very well might be the best player to be traded to NL, clock runs out sunday night. bid how much and drop who for him? i have 89 (the 40 bidder has 90 left) left.

2. guessing my pitching is far worse than my hitting to the point of it being funny to accept a trade of pham for my stripling, gotta hold stripling here right? seems easy actually.

@I got $100 for groceries, $1400 for liquor and $6,000 for you to bail a couple of shit puppets out of jail: we keep 3 per year using previous season’s ADP prices (sept of this year at fantasy pros averaged across numerous sites would determine next year’s keeper prices), so this year i was able to keep freeman + harper + rhysus. next year rhysus obv is still a keeper (was 18th NL player off the board in march so a 2nd rounder next year) and ONE of harper/freeman (both would be 1st rounders, can’t keep both) and i’d attempt to trade the other one for draft pick upgrade.

@Grey: in yahoo there is no other way to not lose players in NL or AL only leagues midseason unless you technically have ALL player universe in play. so when somebody comes over it would either be “hey i saw this news first thus i win” which is b.s. or you could do what we do, waivers in message board using FAAB (used to be just waiver order, now vickrey bidding). clearly while we can’t lose a player’s stats midseason we can’t have a guy who is traded and then starts next year in the AL as a keeper of course. so i own hand here, but he’ll be in AL next year to start it, thus not a possible keeper. we can retract or change bids till exactly the last minute of our 48 hour clock.

@I got $100 for groceries, $1400 for liquor and $6,000 for you to bail a couple of shit puppets out of jail: this does make our drafts QUITE stressful for obvious reasons if even ONE owner doesn’t show up.

@Grey: mostsuckass now added. it’s very likely i couldn’t afford to win both of these at all. opening bid on him is 35 (from the same guy who opened the E2 bid, but others will show up).
how’d you rank these and mostsuckass’ bid vs E2’s
good news is since these bids are open and it’s vickrey i can prioritize and there isn’t any fear of overbidding.

2. and who are my drops if i win one or both. my guesses are
mostsuckass (longo)
E2 (kike or maybe harrison)

we DO get a week to add somebody in event of winning a guy(s), so i could attempt to trade one of those to somebody for pitching upgrade.

In a league where I need pitching, would you deal newly called up Sano for Maeda?

It’s a 12 team keeper league with OBP instead of avg.

Wondering what value Jo Ma has today? He keeps starting but Gyorko still sick. He is a bench bat now but holding hoping he ends up inAL as a DH.

Holds league so getting offers like Britton, Devenski, Herrera for him.

Is Chris devenski droppable in a 10 team s+h holds league. He seems to have hit a wall. Astros pen is deep. He has 3 holds over last 30 days. Guys like minter and Herrera are available if needed. Are they that much different for rest of season? Thanks

holy jebus, yahoo is a joke, they don’t have a large chunk of prospects at start of season, BUT now some of the new draft class (mize, bart, biggio) JUST now got added to it’s system. so those who just happened to know that got lucky, many of the others (bohm, india, madrigal) did NOT get added. so i wake up today to see in a 20 team dynasty the first three have been obtained by somebody, 2 of them to ONE owner. b.graterol is NOW also in the system after having not been for a long damn time (years). if you are going to enter a season F’ing up wait till the next season (or a call up) to fix this shit. OR if you ARE going to add the newly drafted guys add ALL of them, not some.

@Grey: of course not, it’s awful. some dude in a 20 team league just nabbed 2 top 72 guys. meanwhile in two other leagues set up similarly (10 NA’s CAN add direct to NA list without having to drop somebody first) i just nabbed graterol + mize. graterol in all three. it’s completely asinine, and NOW i have to check EVERY day for say if ralph’s top guy in that draft bohm is added. in some other spots these guys come off WW tonight (2 or 3 other leagues)
