With the trade deadline behind us, teams have taken shape for their stretch run. Some teams made some small moves to address areas of concerns. Some teams went out and made some trades like the Padres, where they consolidated five teams into one massive Superteam that could invade a country. “Hey, what’s up Mexico? Or should I say ‘Que paso?’ We’ve got Trent Grisham holding your El Presidente hostage and we’re going to be needing all of your natural resources.” Sorry, that’s a spoiler alert, because that’s how the show Narcos ends, with the Padres invading Mexico. Then some other teams took a more conservative approach and just simply brought up a top prospect. Enter: the DodgersMiguel Vargas. Here’s what Prospect Itch said about him, “I’ve been trying to trade for Vargas in several of my leagues for a long time, and I’m not giving up now. In 83 AA games, the 6’3” 205 lb Vargas slashed .321/.386/.523 with 16 HR and 7 SB. Math isn’t my first language, but that would prorate out to an acceptable fantasy campaign, I think. His best trait is a double-plus hit tool that lets his solid power play up. Only thing he’s missing is a left hook to knock out Grey.” Okay, not cool. This year, Vargas did more of the same, going 15/123/.291 in Triple-A with a 14.6% strikeout rate. For a 22-year-old, those numbers are muy bueno, as the Padres would say after invading Mexico. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Jose Trevino – Been a pretty cool story going on with Trevino and the Yankees. So cool, they never wanted to be without one, so they went out and got another Trivino for laundry day.

Jose MirandaTwins saw a market inefficiency, and have a new type of Moneyball thing going, but for pitchers who have great command and hitters with solid hit tools. They did it with Luis Arraez, and now they’re doing it with Jose Miranda. Only Miranda’s got a trick up his sleeve. An illusion, if you will. He could hit for power too.

Aledmys Diaz – Was one of the top guys on the 7-day Player Rater, but, appizzarently, the Astros don’t look at Razzball, because they went out and got Mancini, so might hurt Diaz’s playing time a bit.

Seth Brown – This guy just sounds like an Oakland A’s player, right? Just something super boring about a Seth Brown. “Hey, what do you know about the A’s newest left fielder, Bill Beige?”

Luis Rengifo – “When you find a Puerto Rican restaurant that makes good Rengifo, you never never forget where it is, and that’s why I’m in downtown Santa Fe at this little joint run by three sisters. The Three Sisters Cafe!” That’s Guy Fieri having an acid flashback.

Michael Massey – Just gave you my Michael Massey fantasy. It was my Emmys submission.

Nolan Gorman – When you hear it’s time to go-go on NoGo, and you’re like so-so and I’m like, “‘So-so’ as in mediocre or ‘so-so’ as in you need more convincing?” Then it’s the latter “so-so” so, uh, so, I tell ya NoGo has 26 homers this year in roughly a half a season, when combining the majors and Triple-A. Nothing mediocre so-so about that.

Nico Hoerner – This is about this week, which is what I say right before making it not about this week. Hoerner’s stats prorating out over a full season looking like 12/20/.300 are making my 2023 sleeper muscles twitch a little bit.

Orlando Arcia – Albies is still a few weeks away, and Arcia has been hitting recently. Hey, if it’s good enough for a defending World Series champion, I think you can handle it.

Paul DeJong – Colonel Mustard with a plunger in the bathroom after eating Taco Bell.

Alec Bohm – Damn, those 2023 sleeper muscles are twitching again. Quiet, 2023 sleeper muscles! You’re supposed to be about this week! “But Bohm looks like the guy we thought he was going into last year before he flamed out!” That’s the 2023 Sleeper Muscles, unable to keep their mouth shut.

Joey Wendle – Mr. Wendle is a classic track from Arrested Development about how occasionally even a ballplayer, who is a bum, is decent enough to be worth rostering.

Mark Vientos – Do we have our first September call-up stash? Hmm. *emoji with its hand on chin, looking around like Wey Bey from The Wire when he’s making the “You don’t say” reaction*

James Outman – This guy sounds like a superhero who’s trying to hide the fact that he’s really great at baseball with some phony modest name. “Hey, aren’t you Ray Kerr?” “Nah, man, not me. I’m James Outman. That Ray Kerr guy is too good though, huh?”

Cal Mitchell – “When you’re a housewife, stressed, and you just need some time alone, why not slide yourself into a tub with some…” Holds up bubble bath, “…Calm Itchell.”

Corey Dickerson – Fun fact! Male Siamese Twins are sometimes called Co-Dick. That’s also a nickname for Corey Dickerson. What a Co-Dickydink.

Brandon Marsh – After his trade, it was revealed that this was not the first time Marsh was mentioned around the Philly clubhouse. Ya see, the trainers had been seeing something related. WebMD says “Marsh-ass” is “swamp-ass but scratchier” and is what you get when you’ve been wearing a mascot costume all day. The Phanatic has been suffering from this for a long time. Hopefully, they figure that out! So, super intrigued by Marsh in his new home. He was a guy who I wrote a sleeper post about last year because he’s got fantastic speed and some light power. That power could play up in Philly, which is a better stadium, and they might just let him run too.

Bubba Thompson – Just gave you my Bubba Thompson fantasy. It took a gondola over to the glass-blowing factory.

Josh Palacios – This guy’s name translated made me laugh for some reason — Josh Palace. It sounds like what a 15-year-old would call his bedroom. Wonder if Josh Palace has any chicks over in the right field corner in Washington.

Jose Siri – I feel like I’m getting known as the guy who loves Jose Siri more than anyone else love Jose Siri, so I’m going to downplay things for right now, but I will say he’s got power and speed, and you’d be impressed by him too, if you saw him.

Nick Lodolo – This is a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to its old high school.

Chris Flexen – This is also a Streamonator call. “I didn’t graduate, I was built in the science class, but I was wondering if I could still attend the 10-year reunion.”

Ryan Tepera – Think the Angels will go to Tepera for most of their saves, as long as he isn’t too frightened after hearing the ump say, “Batter up!”

Jonathan HernandezRangers are prolly the worst run franchise, which stinks for me to say because I always liked their GM, Chris Young. I had dreams of him helping me win a pickup basketball game state championship. But the Rangers are just so bad in every way. They even had a decent closer, and decided, “Meh, let’s try other guys for no reason.” Enter: Jonathan Hernandez.

Zach Jackson – With the loss of Trivino, Jackson should be in the lead for saves, and have the dozens of A’s fans screaming for Zackson Jackson! To paraphrase Redman, “It’s time it’s time for some Zackson!” But A.J. Puk and Dany Jimenez are there too. Lowercase A’s.

Rowan Wick – *wears turtleneck, holds candle in front of face* Extreme Kathleen Turner voice, “Your Wick is my command.”

Wil Crowe – Some of these closers could also be classified under the letter H for, “How desperate are you?”

Felix Bautista – Might not be as good as Jorge Lopez is now on the Twins, but only because Felix is still on the Orioles, but but the Orioles were winning a lot of games, then again the Orioles traded away Trey Mancini, then again again was he doing that much? “Was he doing that much?!” That’s Josh Lowe’s cheek.

SELL

Juan Soto – I am the devil! I can’t even look at myself in the mirror! Suggesting to sell Juan Soto? What kind of evil are you malarkey’ing?! Be gone from the head of Grey, you evil warlord! So, I still love Juan Soto. I kinda love, love, lurve him. He’s 23 and feels already like a lock for the Hall of Fame in 20 years. Possibly one of the greatest we will ever see when it’s all said and done. With that said (here’s where Grey turns the ship around), Sexy Dr. Pepper is a 10/4/.280 hitter the rest of the way. All projections put him down for that. That’s great! Don’t get me wrong, but that is also what you could get from about 30 other guys. With the trade to San Diego, Juan Soto’s the apple of everyone’s eye, so if you need another piece, now is the time to sell him. I’m not saying to sell Juan Soto for an off-brand pet rock, but I would go to our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.

Couple trades on deadline have altered my squad quite a bit. Seeking advice on areas to shore up via the WW now that the league’s trade deadline has past. Playoffs are a given in my h2h league so thinking ahead to September.

I have one open selection. With the squad would you use it to:
1. stream (Gibson home vs Marlins looks best – so far from a sure thing) sharing that to point out the pitching is thin.
2. Add another OF (Pham or Dozier) since Stanton, JulRod and Acuna are so dicey.
3. Or take a flier on Luzardo, May, Quintana, Kirby with their various issues – health, innings limits
4. Or grab another reliever : Scott or Kennedy for saves or lots of guys for holds. (Munoz, Phillips, Vesia)

What a week! Entered it tied for first, leaving it in third place. Every decision wrong today. Carson over MJ, kept Montero in despite not needing holds and lost WHIP by .01, then dropped Pham when he was 0-3 today (with a horrible last 40 days) only to see him get two hits. Acuna, well that was a very poor first round pick. Moving on, I feel better now that I am done whining…ugh.
here is the team and WW options:
C- MJ (OF eligible)
CI – 3 Freeman, Miranda, Tellez
MI – 3 Lindor, Gleyber, Polanco
OF – 5 Robert, Acuna, JulRod, Happ, Alek
Util – L Urias
IL: Wander

WW: Pham, Walsh, Peralta, Carson, Dozier, Bohm
1. I have one pickup…,given my OF injury issues I guess I am leaning there. Who is best (probably Pham since I dropped him to get MJ lol)
2. Would you replace Urias with Bohm or hold?

Keeper league, I was offered Pete Alonso for my Tim Anderson and my 11th and 12th round draft picks next year and 11th in 2024. This is a keep 10, 12 team roto league, so those are my first picks after keeper spots. I really like Alonso but does that seem too high? Or take the best player and run? I can try to negotiate down a bit but may not have much luck.

How much higher do you think Alonso will be ranked than Anderson next year?

2. Is Pham a drop in a 12 teamer. I would replace with Iglesias or Bohm

Hi Grey,

1. Would you waive Rowdy Tellez or Michael Harris II to get Aledyms Diaz? Another option is to waive Carson Kelly and take Aledyms Diaz. What would you do?

2. yesterday was a disaster. i pitched both Aaron Ashby and Pablo Lopez. i would love to waive one. Am i being too emotional? Would you still keep one or both? i am thinking of waiving Ashby. The current possible options include Kyle Gibson or James Kaprielian. Am i wrong to not to be impressed with either Gibson or Kaprielian?

how is your recovery? Good luck!

1. Does Muncy’s decent week give you any hope he is “fixed”? I got an offer Muncy for my Gleyber who has been ice cold but a .165 BA is tough to ignore. So i held for now. I would probably do L Urias just for upside tho. Thoughts on all this?

2. Did you see Clev pitch tonight? Thought he could be a decent but low after tonight but did not see his stuff.

3. Kwan and Muncy for Gleyber and either Urias or Pham work?

I have a shot at getting into 4th place and about $150 prize or trade a too expensive Scherzer next year for a $6 Strider who I can keep till his arm blows out.
It is an NL 260 league that’s deep $5/year raise.
PS a consolation of 5-6 place means no raise for SOTO, 22 next year who is a keeper for 3 more years at his salary now.
Without Max Scherzer I can’t hold 6th place.
To the question….Trade Max and get Strider for about 4 more years OR keep Scherzer and Maybe stay in the middle of the pack and as a consolation have Soto an extra year? And on top of that Maybe even win a few $$$.

Hey Grey-

10 team NL only standard 5×5 roto keeper league. We can only make waiver claims for players when they are on the active MLB roster often making the weekly FAAB period a frenzy bidding war. I have been active in the waiver pickups throughout the season which has helped put me in a competitive position, but also as a result I’m not holding the hammer with the most $ left.

What are your thoughts in putting a healthy bid on M. Vargas to potentially outbid most others and still leave myself $ for the remaining weeks vs. Continuing to wait out a potential C. Carroll call-up, and may be left with neither?

Thanks Grey. I appreciate It may require more than 15% given the scarce waiver wire options in NL only to make an impact.

The appeal is both for this season (although appreciate playing time risk with Taylor back and JTurner back soon from IL) and beyond in keeper league. In a vacuum, would Vargas be worth considering keeping at $8 next season (with opportunity for $5 annual increases thereafter?)

Good Evening Grey,

12 Team Roto/H2H Hybrid 6×6 (OPS and QS)
I give Kirk, I get Tyler Mahle.

I can pick up carson kelly to replace Kirk, pitching def harder to find, but Kirk is so good.

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

What are your thoughts on Ohtani moving forward? In our league, he gets pitching and hitting options so he has been a monster. Do you think they shut his pitching down!
Ohtani owner wants Robert and Polanco in return. Thoughts?

Gorman, Javy Baez or BLowe rest of way, Avg isn’t a factor

Happy Friday, Grey!

1.) Are we still holding Riley Greene in RCLs? Or is he droppable for batty calls with the likes of Naquin, Alek Thomas, Vogelbach, Segura available on the WW… Love his upside and leadoff spot in the order, but 2HR, 1SB, .237AVG (over 169 AB) is getting tough to justify hanging onto right now.

2.) Same question for Grisham. Hold or stream?

Thanks!
