No ham sad-wiches at this Fiers fest!  Mike Fiers pitching a no-hitter with 6 Ks, ERA down to 5.48, and he only needed 131 pitches.  Previously, he threw a no-hitter in 2015 when he threw 135 pitches.  Man, pitchers really threw a whole lot more pitches back then in the mid-twenty-teens.  Way back when we still thought Game of Thrones was a good show and not a shill for Starbucks.  Way back in 2015 when we all got along outwardly and just simmered under the surface with our political differences.  What a time!  Of course, Mike Fiers was facing the Reds, and Fiers is red and *insert Spider-man pointing at himself jpg* and Ramon Laureano needed to rob Joey Votto of a home run, but…piece of cake.  As we knew all along, there’s nothing to Fiers except Fiers himself.  He was a streamer I strongly considered yesterday, because Fiers is the epitome of a Medi-OAKer pitcher, and he was at home facing a terrible team.  Sadly, the one thing that puts out Fiers is when you put your stream on him.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Jurickson Profar – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer.  Ya know, I’m not saying this is it, but he made a fantastic play in the field, then homered soon thereafter.  Maybe with some confidence on defense it’s turning around Profar’s bat, literally.

Matt Olson – 0-for-3 as he was activated from the IL. Be interesting to see how much of his power is there for the first three to four months after his hamate bone injury, and by ‘interesting’ I mean I wouldn’t expect him to be anywhere near 100%.

Mac Williamson – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 4 RBIs with his 1st homer, as he was called up.  In our Giants minor league preview written in 2013 by Prospect Scott Evans, he gave Williamson an ETA of 2015.  Hee-larious.  Scott Evans was wrong, but not about Mac Williamson; he was wrong thinking the Giants would try to get young at any point.  The Giants would rather try a 47-year-old Gerardo Parra, who was fifteen years past his sell-by date, then try Mac Williamson.  The Giants are the only team that could trade for a 30-year-old statue like Pillar (1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .197) and get younger.  Williamson has been hitting homers for the Giants’ minor league system since 2012.  Only now, less than 14 months from his 30th birthday, do they call him up.  He’s killing the minor leagues this year, because he’s seen every minor league pitcher about twelve dozen times.  He’s capable of 30 homers, so if you need power, grab him.  Not if you need black power, Mac Williamson only sounds like a blaxploitation actor.  Hopefully, the Giants don’t give him the Shaft.

Charlie Blackmon – 1-for-4 and his 5th homer, hitting .291.  After the game, Chazz Noir reached for his full-length fur coat and Mac Williamson was like, “Yo, cuz, that’s my fox.”  Awkward!

Shohei Ohtani – 0-for-4, 1 RBI as he was activated from the IL and hit 3rd.  Also, being activated was Cody Allen and Zack Cozart.  Mean’s while, Bourjos and Stratton were DFA’d and Rengifo was optioned and Ausmus stuck his hand under his armpit and made farting news while using Hansel Robles (1 IP, 0 ER, 3rd save) to close the game.  You are now up to date!

Griffin Canning – 5 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.66.  He had 18 swinging strikes in 86 pitches.  More like schwinging strikes, amiright?!  12 of them came on his slider.  *puts handkerchief to forehead, falls into Giancarlo Fathead wall mount*  Giancarlo, you always catch me when my estrogen falls too low.  Canning will have problems going deep into games — because of all dem Ks, yummers! — but he looks as good as all these other young sexy starters who are better than those old, been-around-the-block starters your leaguemates are trotting out there.

Carter Kieboom – Was demoted back to the minors.  Sucks if you spent a lot on him in FAAB.  We should have a glossary term for overspending in FAAB.  Please suggest in the comments. Do not make the term anything to do with Kieboom, Kiebust or anything to do with one player.

Anthony Rendon – 0-for-3 as he was activated from the IL.  Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “After much soul-searching and tolerance training, I’ve come to realize I can’t wear pants in public.”

Trea Turner – Took some batting practice.  *kneels in front of candelabra made of Giancarlo bobbleheads*  Please, Candela-bro, make Turner return within a week.

Freddy Peralta – 5 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 6.75, as he was used after an Opener.  I kinda love Peralta in this role.  Bring him in a low stress situation and just let him throw, until he can’t anymore.  Gonna definitely cyclops him for the next time he’s due to follow an Opener.

Dakota Hudson – 5 IP, 2 ER, 6 unearned runs, 10 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.63.  When the Regression Fairies show up but they’re unearned runs, it’s like you show up in hell for murder and the devil’s like, “Honestly, your victim was kind of an asshole.”  As for Dakota, three days in a row now I’ve received NL-Only notifications to my email that someone was dropped mid-game.  Speaking of notifications, I shut off my phone notifications about nine months ago, and have never been happier.  Then, at some point yesterday, I received a notification, and I thought it snuck through.  Then, they started filing through one after another.  Seems like the iPhone update shut off my no notifications status.  Yuck.  How does anyone get anything done with notifications on their phone?  Seriously, I feel like it’s someone whispering in my ear non-stop to procrastinate.  This was a shaggy dog story about iPhone settings?  P to the erhaps.

David Robertson – Will begin throwing this week and might return early-June, then be named closer mid-June, then be named setup man late-June, then work the 7th inning of a blowout on July 5th.  I’m sorry, I paid for this fifteen-minute call to the Psychic Friends Network and I’m gonna use my time.

Aaron Nola – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.57.  Hard to know if he’s corrected himself or the Phils’ early lead propelled him and deflated the Cards.  Either way, obviously a step in a better direction.

Bryce Harper – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .236.  Harper’s terrible plate discipline from last year?  It’s become worse.  His walk rate is down; his weak contact is up; he’s not hitting for a good average and has neutral luck; semi-colons are fun.  I thought Harper would make improvements on last year back to his previous years, but bad habits are getting worse.

Rhys Hoskins – 4-for-5, 3 runs, and his 11th homer, hitting .302.  Prolly confirmation bias talking or some other Psych 101 term, but it was so obvious Hoskins was headed for a huge season this year.  Truly annoyed I don’t own him anywhere.

Max Fried – 1 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 2.97, and left after taking a comebacker off his hand.  Sigh.  We can’t have anything nice, can we?

Justin Turner – 4-for-5, 6 RBIs and his 2nd, 3rd and 4th homers, hitting .302.  He would have to come out of his funk right when I have my Fried facing him.  Stupid, Max, you should pronounce it fried like shizz is too hot to handle, and not freed like the gee-dee balls!  Beginning to think Justin Turner is like a redheaded Matt Carpenter.  Absolutely awful for a months (or years as was the case on the Mets), then he’s a house (and beard) of fire for a few months.  Could be in for a fun ride, Turner owners.  Shame I didn’t even get to call him a sell on Friday.  Wait, I think Anime Grey did.  Nice!

Hyun-Jin Ryu – 9 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.03.  Please, someone put a plastic bubble around his groin so he stays healthy.  Where’s Howie Mandel?  Can he blow up a condom for Ryu?

Noah Syndergaard – 6 IP, 4 ER, 10 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.14.  Buh-buh-buh-buh-buh-buh-buh-buh-BUT I thought he was fixed after his last game.

Pete Alonso – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 11th homer, hitting .284.  Dammit, I love Pete Alonso.  Nothing else.  Just pure, unadulterated man-on-man love.

Franmil Reyes – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .261.  Fun fact!  Mac Williamson looks in the mirror and sees Franmil Reyes.

Ty France – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer.  For France, that’s as good as it baguettes!  I’m torn between thinking he’s a Quad-A player, and someone with power for deeper leagues. Won’t hurt to try him in those deeper leagues.

Hunter Renfroe – 2-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI and his 2nd steal.  Not sure how he got one steal let alone two, but he’s still hot schmotato’ing.

Collin McHugh – 3 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 6.37.  McH-Ugh.  How about all those tasty pitches he learned last year in middle relief translating back to the rotation?  Fantastic. If I owned him, I’d look elsewhere.

Whit Merrifield – 4-for-5, 3 runs, 5 RBIs and a slam (6) and legs (7), and a double short of a cycle, hitting .299.  I whiffed on Whit this preseason.  Was expecting him to go backwards, but he’s apparently a shark.

Jorge Soler – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 9th homer, hitting .261.  Barring injury, you know what kind of year Soler’s headed for?  2018 Piscotty.

Ryan O’Hearn – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .202, but hitting close to .400 in the last week.  Hot schmotato alert!

Jon Lester – 6 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 1.41 vs. Caleb Smith – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.11.  Since I started both guys in one league, and Smith in multiple leagues, I watched the majority of this game.  Huge strike zone, but Smith is as nasty as his line consistently is.  No one is touching Paddack right now for late-round pitchers who are paying huge dividends, but Smith’s stuff looks pretty close to as filthy.  By the by, I picked up Lester off waivers in my RCL, which is a head-scratcher at best.  I get the wont to stream, but look at Lester’s ERA and peripherals.  I don’t know who did it, but it’s over-managing when you’re dropping starters with a sub-2 ERA.

Kris Bryant – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer, and 3rd homer in as many games.  Reverse sell jinx is alive and well. Goes to show you, your dad was right — badger and mock someone long enough and they’ll come around! Since I own him, I’d like nothing more for Bryant to be 100% healthy and hitting like it.  Here’s to him making faint memories of his April.

Mitch Moreland – 1-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 10th homer, and third homer this week, hitting .215.  Been miserable outside of home runs, but at least he’s hitting home runs, right, Jackie Bradley Jr. (0-for-2, hitting .147)? Is anyone hitting worse than JBJ?  Okay, maybe Vlad Jr.

J.D. Martinez – 1-for-2, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .323.  All Just Dong does is.  Dot dot dot.  Well, five homers isn’t that many, tee bee aitch.

Xander Bogaerts –  1-for-5 and his 7th homer, hitting .254.  You ever have a player on one team that’s doing poorly and don’t him anywhere else so you kinda hope he does poorly even though you own him?  That’s where I’m at with Bogaerts, because I only have him in NFBC, and that team *holds nose*

Ryan Brasier – 2/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 3.68, as he entered the 8th inning.  Mean’s while, Matt Barnes got the save (1 1/3 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 1.88).  For selfish reasons, I want Barnes to close.  For non-selfish reasons, I think Brasier will still get saves.  For shellfish reasons, I’d own both in a pinch.

Gregory Polanco – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and a slam (1) and legs (1), hitting .273. Brocktune!  If you get the Brocktune reference, you’re part of a very exclusive fan club.

Masahiro Tanaka – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.77.  If Tanaka holds his end of the bargain that he’s a lights-out, filthy AF 2nd half pitcher, he could be headed for his best season ever.

Marco Gonzales – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.08.  Nothing inherently wrong with a low-K guy, but if I’m being honest I would’ve looked at the Streamonator for Gonzales and benched him.

Jay Bruce – 3-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI, hitting .196.  Coming into this game, Bruce had 19 total hits and 11 had gone for homers.  Yesterday, he had three measly hits.  Someone’s an anti-vaxxer.

Anthony Swarzak – 1/3 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 6.10.  His last name sounds racist, so he needs to get cancelled anyway.  My guess is Roenis Elias gets the next save opportunity.

Jose Berrios – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.53.  About to institute a strict only-draft-starters-under-the-age-of-26 rule.  Sure, you might miss out on Verlander and Scherzer-types, but that’s fine with me.

Mitch Garver – 3-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer.  Mitch don’t kill my vibe!  Not as in a command telling Mitch to withhold his buzzkilling, but saying as a celebration that Mitch does not, in fact, kill my vibe.

Aaron Sanchez – 7 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.21.  At some point, the Regression Fairies are going to do Sanchez dirty.

Lucas Giolito – 7 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 4.06.  In an AL-Only league, I’d be on Giolito like clams on a casino, but life is so damn short, which isn’t just what a shirt reads that I send Altuve every Christmas.  His peripherals do say Giolito appears to be real (11 K/9, 4.4 BB/9, 3.68 xFIP), but those walks are going to bite him against some teams in a miserable way.

Corey Kluber – Told reporters, “I don’t have a plan not to pitch again,” then, when asked to say it again without a double negative he said, “Yes, I will pitch again, for sure.”  Then when asked to do it again without a double positive, he said, “Huh?”  The timetables (not times tables, put away your calculator) are now saying Kluber might not return until August, and, if the Indians are as bad as they look now in August, Kluber may only get a handful of starts, or none at all.  It ain’t ideal.

Jefry Rodriguez – 6 IP, 2 ER, 10 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.41.  His K/9 is 5.8 and his BB/9 is 2.4.  *insert Grey cackle*

Jace Fry – 1/2 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 5.54.  Pitching in this game was Jefry and J. Fry.  They are also top picks in a game of Hot Potato.

    Great post Grey!

    I was told to smash my phone rather than drop Swarzak and pickup another FA with my last bit of cash, but DAMN. That was brutal!

    I also had both pitchers in CHC Mia game. Caleb look good. I thought Lester was going to get bombed early on, but steadied things out!

        So I switch tonight, start Dozier, Santana might reach around and surprise me.

        Should I just keep H.Dozier in regardless and be done with it?

    Great report!

    a. Weird shizz happening, right?

    1. Like the Nats’ charter plane has a malfunction and they have to wait on the tarmac for 8 hours after the game before a genius figures out they won’t leave the tarmac, then spend the night in Philadelphia, getting to the hotel at 03h00!! Then travel to Milwaukee arriving 12h00 at the ball park! That’s a recipe for disaster.

    2. Lighting problems in Oak, but seemed to be no problem for Fiers in the hole. He’s awesome but that’ll be his last such effort.

    b. Abbott and Costello quote of the day for May 8

    Poko Moko / Slowly I turned – classic clown skit as done by Abbott and Costello

    Slowly I Turned, a classic vaudeville routine as performed by Bud Abbott and Lou Costello in their movie, ‘Lost in a Harem’. Also known as Poko Moko and Niagara Falls

    Bud, Lou and derelict in a cell:

    Derelict: I haven’t always been a derelict … (looks at Lou) … like you.
    Lou Costello: Don’t call me those kind of bad names!
    Derelict: Would you like to hear my story?
    Lou Costello: No
    Derelict: Very well, then I’ll tell it to you
    Bud Abbott: Go ahead
    Derelict: [to Bud] Thank you … many years ago my father gave me the benefit of a very good education [sad music playing] … then .. I met her. She was beautiful … glorious. We were married. Two years later – a baby boy. I haven’t seen that boy till this very day.
    Lou Costello: Did you say a little baby boy?
    Derelict: Yes!
    Lou Costello: Did he have brown eyes?
    Derelict: Yes he did!
    Lou Costello: And two little teeth in the front?
    Derelict: [Excitedly] Yes, yes!
    Lou Costello: And black hair?
    Derelict: Yes!
    Lou Costello: Daddy!
    [derelict pushes Lou away]
    Bud Abbott: Oh what’s the matter with you? Sit still! Keep quiet. Stop interrupting the man!
    Lou Costello: Well, I thought I found my father!
    Bud Abbott: Quiet! [turns to derelict] – go ahead.
    Derelict: Thank you. We were very happy, my little family. One morning we were seated around the breakfast table and a knock came at the door. There stood a man. He was broken in health and spirit. I bade him enter, I welcomed him into my home. I said ‘make my home your home’…and he did! One day I returned from work to find that home was no longer a home. My wife … the baby… and the stranger had fled. Then one day … at the banks of the Poko Moko I found them. Suddenly my brain snapped. All the years of pent up emotion of years suffering welled up within me. I knew I would never be satisfied until I had my bony fingers wrapped around his throat. So with murder in my heart …slooooooowly I turned [acting this out as he speaks, focusing on Lou[, step by step, step by step I crept upon him [creeping towards Lou] and when I saw the stare in his face … I struck and I grabbed him [Grabs Lou and starts pushing him against the wall and shouting at him]
    Bud Abbott: What’s the matter? Why are you interrupting the man for?
    Derelict: My poor friend, I’m sorry. But every time I hear the word Poko Moko, I just want to kill!
    Lou Costello: Take it easy pal, take it easy!
    Bud Abbott: See, every time he hears that word: ‘Poko Moko’
    Derelict: Poko Moko!!!! OOhh, I knew I’d never be satisfied until I had his blood running between my fingers…so slowly I turned [does action] step by step, step by step I crept upon him – and when I saw the streak on his countenance I grabbed him and I couldn’t help myself [throws Lou against the wall and begins beating him up] and I was going out my mind [calms down, breathless]
    Lou Costello: [takes an exaggerated boxing stance]
    Bud Abbott: Stand still! What’s the matter with you? The man’s telling you his life’s history. It’s interesting.
    Derelict: My poor friend! I did it again, didn’t I?
    Bud Abbott: It’s alright, it’s alright
    Derelict: What’s happening to me?
    Lou Costello: It’s not happening to you brother, it’s all happening over here!
    Bud Abbott: Just … don’t use that word ….
    Lou Costello: Don’t … don’t … don’t … don’t. He means “Pocahontas!”
    Derelict: [reacts for a second]
    Lou Costello: [stopping him] Pocahontas!!
    Bud Abbott: Yes, it’s alright
    Lou Costello: Sounds like Coko Moko or something
    Bud Abbott: Shhh!
    Derelict: Poko Moko! BBBRRRRRR…So slowly I turned! Step by step, step by step [Lou calls out for Bud in a quiet voice] … and when I crept upon him … I grabbed him and [again beats Lou and repeatedly slams him into the wall, then throws him across the cell to the other wall knocking his hat off]
    Bud Abbott: [angrily to derelict] Just a minute … just a minute! Now you’ve been getting away with murder. Enough is enough. You understand that? I’ve stood by and watched all this! And I’ve let you get away with it … but no more! [bends down and picks up Lou’s hat] – These things cost money. Be careful how you handle them!

    Cheers,
    Ante

      All Mets pitchers? Wheeler has been serviceable if not solid, DeGrom has had 2 poor starts, and Matz has been on fire but just had a minor-ish injury…Thor has been injured last two seasons and obviously rusty. His BABIP is high but on par with his career and his HR/FB rate is soaring but his FIP is nice. Wouldn’t be surprised to see positive regression but not a top 3 rounds pitcher anymore…

    I have a supplemental draft coming up Thursday. I have pick #2 and #19 out of 20. Was planning on Fried if he was there but now that seems done so I thnk I’ll go with a hitter like Dozier or Chavis at #2.
    For pick #19 I’m looking at a SP that might be still there. Can you rank these please:
    1. Thornton
    2. Channing

    Did you see Alonso’s HR? 449 ft moonshot. Then he did a semi-bat flip (in retaliation to Paddack I’m guessing) but with an “oh I hope that doesn’t hit anyone” hesitation, because he’s more of a considerate young man than a douchebag.

    Mornin Grey,

    there is some talent on our waiver wire and im wondering if you would drop anyone for the below free agents?

    Yahoo 12 team roto 5×5(avg) top 4 in all bat cats save for avg (7th). 1st in all pitching cats save for wins (2nd)

    available:
    Castellanos
    Eloy
    Franmil
    Shaw
    Ohtani
    Raisel Iglesias (I have a waiver claim in to drop Ray for him)
    Luke Weaver – really high on this guy…great adv stats outside of hard contact%

    My team:
    Alfaro
    Voit
    Villar
    Mondesi
    Baez
    Rosario
    Dahl
    Domingod – every time he seems to be cooling off he has an RBI or HR or steal
    Puig
    Senzel
    Andujar – has looked like poop..
    Tatis Jr – miss him on the field..guy is legit and fun to watch

    Marquez
    Paddack
    Glasnow
    Bieber
    Ray
    Desclafani
    Yates
    Hand
    Hader
    Smith
    Alvarado – TB pen is annoying…feel like he was set up for save chance last night as Castillo pitched early butTB scored a bunch late..then again it couldve been Pagan…smh
    (IL) Clevinger
    (IL) Kluber – honestly even worth rostering (even in an IL spot) at this point? hell come back rusty as shit and have 5 bad starts to end the year

    Thanks Grey

    For when you overspend on FAAB-

    FAAD: Free Agent Acquisition Disappointment – double entendre as well cus the guy was a fad and didnt pan out to the hype (at least at the time) that led to the high FAAB claim

        I dropped Kluber, moved Tatis to IL, added Weaver–are you starting him against atlanta?

        So if I add Castellanos for Desclafani, who would I drop when Tatis Jr. returns? I couldnt drop Weaver I would only have 4 starters at that point

    Any chance Luke Jackson and Robles can combine for 30 saves? I have Chapman for the rest to at least compete (14 teams). Closers are breaking me this year.

    By the way, the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz is an eaters paradise. Great marketplace. Ingredients highest quality. Made some new friends and throwing a dinner party in our airbnb. Just finished cleaning 8 quail, including viscera, almost entirely by hand for lack of a sharp knife. Siesta time.

    Hey guys
    1 Need runs and steals – cut Ender for Brett Gardner or Chris Taylor?
    2 Better DL stash: Gregorius or Sano (just want to use the spot when Eloy comes back)
    3 Astudillo or Alfaro at C ROS?

    Also a note for people in leagues where Mallex was cut: in 4 games in AAA, he’s hitting .474 with three runs, an RBI, two doubles and 4 steals, 1 K and 1 walk.
    Branden Bishop hitting .154 in 6 games with 5 k’s.

    8 team League, roto- Roster spots valuable
    1.) Hold Iglesias and Brasier? I’m strong in saves
    2.) Hold Lester, Fried, Weaver?
    ——
    How deep of leagues should we be grabbing Mac Williamson?

    • holyscheisse says:
      (link)

      In an 8-team league, Mac Williamson shouldn’t be anywhere near your radar.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      1. Hold Iglesias move on from Brasier
      2. With 8 teams they’re probably all streamers for me but it also depends on bench size and moves limit.

      I’d say 12 team radar for Mac but you can stream him in any league for his games at Coors today and tomorrow…

    Hey to the Hey, HomeGrey!

    So, despite your skepticism and the bot downgrading the start a bit, I’m sending Peacock out today. Fingers crossssed.

    I’m full of other questions today . . .

    Cody Allen is totally a drop, right? I can’t see that dude getting another save this year.

    Is Piscotty a drop yet? Should I even be asking this about a fourth outfielder type?

    Anyone hear anything about Tatis timetable for coming back?

    Griffin Canning
    Martin Perez

        So you’re not doubting Christian Walker and Daniel Vogelbach then? Cause both have cooled off drastically, and watching Vogelbach’s recent ABs had me worried.

        I also thought Odorizzi/Montas/Canning would have been a drop before Kingery with that sweet 3B/SS eligibility and power/speed combo. So does that also mean you think those guys are more than just streamers?

  79. Thor only has one good game in his last five. How this guy consistently ranks as a top 15 SP is beyond me. Shaky outings are the norm, I was offered Senzel or Justin Turner for him. Should I pull the trigger? I could use some batting help. I don’t know if I can keep waiting on Syndergaard to break out of his struggles.

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      That’s a little dramatic. 3 years ago he was a top 15 pitcher. 2 years ago he was pitching great until he got injured early on. So really you’re talking 2 years that he didn’t deserve to be ranked top 15 to you.

      • Well, I don’t really care about what he did last year, or the year before that. I just know he’s not performing right now. You know the saying, what have you done for me lately. I could counter offer for Senzel or Turner with Archer or Boyd I suppose.

    I’m in a league where I own the following players:
    1b: Voit
    3b: Carpenter (1B elig)
    SS: DeJong
    CI: Devers (3b elig)
    MI: E. Escobar (3b, SS elig)

    DL: Tatis (SS elig)

    When Tatis comes off the DL I’ll have to bench one of these guys every day. Chances are low that one of them gets 2B eligibility. How do you deal with logjams like this? I feel like if I try to trade one then another will end up on the DL.. just looking for general philosophy in situations like these. do you hold and just play matchups or try to trade? Probably depends what you can get?

    Great stuff Grey.

    Some trades just went down in my league and to be honest I’m kind of PO’d. What would your reaction be if you saw these 2 trades go down?

    Trade 1: Team A received javy Baez, mike leake, yuli guirell
    Team B received segura, chavis, darvish

    Trade 2: Team A received carrasco
    Team C received Brandon Lowe, Spencer Turnbull

    So team A is the one receiving Baez and carasco from 2 separate teams, B and C. Teams B and C are the only 2 I would say bad league members that we’ve been trying to replace so to me it seems like team A is taking advantage of that. Kind makes me mad because I don’t even think I’d offer those trades if I we’re team A because I think they’re unfair. Thoughts? FYI, not a super deep league where depth matters as much.

    • Grey

      Thanks! Trade 2 is awful, they’re both chump dumps

      • crimedog says:
        (link)

        Yeah I thought trade 2 was worse as well. What makes it even more alarming is carasco was kept for 2 years so the team getting carasco gets an extra keeper and the team losing carasco is just down a keeper and gets an extra last round pick next year. Doubt he understands that. I’m heated.

    Is Odubel Herrera anywhere near a buy low? Another owner has him under contract for 2 years at $4 and can’t be dropped. He’s trying to unload him because he doesn’t want a player he can’t drop, and offered him to me in a trade for my worst player (Laureano). If I trade for him, and I get a much better player in the deal in return too (a 2 for 2 deal), would you trade for him knowing you’re tied to him until the end of the 2020 season?

    Yo Grey, shallow 10 team mixed league questions for you, yay!

    1) Trey Mancini, overall numbers good, but so blech lately. Is he a hold or drop for batty call types (examples of guys on waivers, Rockies hitters Desmond/Reynolds when at home, Avisail, Redddick, Fletcher, more boring names etc!)

    2) Saw some Mallex comments above. I could use steals, but am not desperate for them. Without much more context, should we be picking him up to stash? Or hold? I would not be dropping anyone good, would probably use a roster spot on Mallex that I use for batty calls.

    3) I have Matt Olson for $1 in a keeper league. I know you are worried about him for the foreseeable future, but do you value him higher in a keeper league? Simply put, as a very cheap keeper is a he a buy, hold, or sell? I know it depends on what I can get, but looking for a ‘in a vacuum’ answer.

    Thanks Grey

    In a 10 team 5×5 AL only dynasty league. I currently have Healy in the last year of his contract at first, Chapman at third, and Urshela at corner. I have Ronald Guzman coming back soon. Who would you drop between Guzman, Urshela, and Healy. My thinking is Healy will be the short side of a platoon when Seager comes back at the end of May. Also, Urshela could lose playing time if he cools off and the rest of Yanks come of the IL. Any professional insight would be greatly appreciated!!

    Grey,
    Want to bug you again. I asked earlier about a supp draft I have coming up. I mentioned taking H Dozier if he’s there with the #2 pick. I have pretty good hitting and will get Trea and Tatis back soon so Dozier might be overkill. That said, Fried’s injury doesn’t look too bad and my initial idea was to go with him until last night. So,
    1. Do you think Fried’s still a better value at #2 than Dozier or should I not trust him
    2. If Dozier is gone and you don’t advise picking Fried, would you go Chavis (I have Muncy and Schoop)
    3. Lastly, if it’s a no on Fried and I don’t go with a hitter which of these SPs do you think is a worthy candidate to go with instead: Chirinos, Minor, Montas, Odorizzi, Turnbill, Eickoff, Bassitt, Perez

    Hope that wasn’t too confusing.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Fried or Hunter Dozier? Apples/oranges
      2. Are you asking Dozier, Fried or Chavis? I’d go Dozier, Chavis, Fried, but pitchers and hitters are not same thing
      3. Odorizzi — these are streamers

      • Sweatpants Nation says:
        (link)

    Util Robles

    SP: Snell, Flaherty, Bieber, Paddack, Strahm, Weaver, Yu
    RP Chapman, Leclerc, Parker, Brasier, Pressly, Urias

    IL Tatis and C Mart

    Having Urias who has SP eligibility is huge as it allows me an extra reliever for holds or saves. I have one open spot to pick up a player. Debating between Martin Perez, DeScalfani or could pick up Didi to put on my IL we have 3 spots and then I could pick someone new up next week or if Tatis come off the IL Friday I would have to cut someone unless I grab Didi to open up a roster spot.

    I guess my question is would you pick up Didi or would you grab one of the other pitchers but if tatis comes back I’d have to cut a player and not sure if I should?

    Also, do you think keeping Urias to get extra holds/saves until he’s a starter is someone I should hold on to or would you cut him if I was to pick up someone other than Didi?

    Thanks

    • Cram It says:

    the club round these parts is larger than the actual mr belvedere fan club from that skit that knows who brocktune is (ours anyway)

    – in crazy out of the blue news yahoo is actually (so far) doing something i’d never thought would happen, include logic in their workings. anybody who’s in any dynasty league in yahoo knows that some otani is TWO entities in yahoo (espn/fantrax got this right in the first place entirely by simply having him be ONE player, and you can slot the pitcher or hitter); and in some dynasties comishes last year ruled that otani (both) have to be owned by whoever drafted one of them. this presented a problem this year of course since we probably had like a 3% chance of yahoo realizing that the pitcher otani should still be DL’d (unless/until he was ruled he’s pitching again) when the hitter comes off the DL. well, that 3% came in, you don’t have to DL activate the pitcher one while still getting the hitting one in your lineups.

    also these: DL (5): k-rob (i f’ed up not getting to neris earlier and l.jackson lately), steck

    options: alexander/kelly (who i’ve both owned a few times, nobody else seems to like them and baez has seemed to grab that 8th now), OR CUBS guys seem to have some value uppage with strop out now: sire of sandwiches (back again, gotta think he’ll move up the ladder shortly), kintzler, brach?

    have this already:

    1B tellez

    SS villar (2B)

    NA (1) pearson

    1. hold which of these for NA slot: n.lowe, pearson, biggio, honeywell, b.bradley, n.jones?

    2. grab which of those hitters for lowe, also, hold tauchman for now over all of them or not? tilson’s speed could be what i thought i drafted in mullins. pence might be good when he’s rolling this well, even if platooning mostly.

    14-team OBP league.
    I traded off my SS to get Robles and have Ronny Rodriguez in the short term.
    SS options that are FA are:
    Hampson, H.Perez, Arcia, A.Diaz, Munoz, Adames, Iglesias, C.Tucker, B.Crawford, and not much more available….Keep Ronny or add-drop?

    Also, I have a couple of bench spots open. J.Candelario and Ryan “Brohearn” are available. I have Vladdy, Freeman, Hosmer, and Devers but, do I dare pass up either JC or Brohearn??

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Hold for now, pass up? If you have an empty spot, grab Candelario

        Thanks.

        Someone just dumped Marwin G. Is he that big of an upgrade over Ronny R at SS?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Nope

          • Kruk_Ain't_An_Athlete says:
            (link)

            I didn’t think so…I’m gonna keep ol’ Ronny R around for a bit!
            Thanks Grey!

    Hey Grey,
    In a 12 team keeper league(keep 10) would you grab N.Mazara,Tapia, or Verdugo over T.Shaw or J.Aguilar? I would like to keep one of the 2 brewers as a backup to EE at 1b but they have both been brutal so far. Id probably give the edge to shaw for his position eligibility/consistency in the past. I should iterate that we only keep 10 and the odds are that none of these guys will be kept barring an amazing season. I could also grab the resurgent E.Hosmer. He of the 1 good year 1 bad year career.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Hosmer over Aguilar

  187. The Other JC says:

    Romo, Givens , Robles or Braiser for saves? Yes, I have reached bottom now that Strop is out.

    ERod or Kikuchi?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Ha, I hear ya… Romo — Kikuchi

    Holy Brad Peacock. Streamed him then dumped him chasing SAGNOF. Too hasty?

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      Yeah after his debacle last week I dumped him too – I’m hoping it’s not a “Reynaldo Lopez-esque” mirage

      Nah, it’s ok

  190. peralta for paddack?

    TA says its a bit in favor of peralta. and im doing better on pitching than hitting.
