(NOTE: THIS POST WAS RELEASED EARLY THIS WEEK ON OUR PATREON. IT’S $10/MONTH.)

Who knew the most emblematic song about MJ would’ve been Smooth Criminal? Or going from Pretty Young Thing to Beat It. Or Bad. Jeez, now that I think about it, a lot of Michael Jackson songs become Creep City. Would’ve been hilarious if he named Neverland, “Creep City.” Not haha funny, but more like, “Hey, lots of red flags here, guys, maybe we should investigate?” Speaking of investigating, MJ Melendez (how about that segue?) sounds like a 90s tabloid reporter who would’ve been invited to Neverland to “take a look around” while the help hide children in closets, waiting for Michael. Speaking of segues, I took a Segway tour through Beverly Hills and we stopped at the former Menendez Brothers’ house and the people who now live there just looked at us with disgust. Was pretty cool. Any hoo! Sal Perez is the type to play through all kinds of shizz, so that he was IL’d means he must’ve truly been hurt. MJ Melendez was also up with the club even before the Sal P. IL stint, so the Royals seem committed to him. We don’t care about catchers usually, but Melendez could be a 17-homer, .250 catcher this year with even some steals thrown in. Him or Adley? If both were up, I don’t think Adley’s necessarily the better choice for this year. The guy who is up right now is the easy call. A-B-C, as easy as 1-2-3, for the King of Pop Times. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Alejandro Kirk – “Live long, and pop times.” — Famous quote from Kirk. I’m a big pop time guy this week, huh? Any hoo, kinda shocked to see Kirk only rostered in 43% of RCL leagues, and 14% of ESPN leagues, but then I looked at the Player Rater, and he was around the 30th best catcher, and I’m not in many 30-team leagues, so I kinda understood it. This buy is about what he can do vs. what he has done.

Juan Yepez – *lays velvet down on glass case, then lays down a very special collectible* This is my Ye Pez. When you open his mouth, you don’t get candy, you get utter nonsense.

Christian Walker – Mentioned last week that Walker’s Statcast was gorge, and then someone commented this week, asking if I had seen it, so IS ANYONE READING THIS?! Walker could hit 30 homers this year (which might lead the majors), while hitting .220, i.e., he’s not Mr. Perfect, Curt Hennig.

Yuli GurrielAstros’ lineup will be better for counting stats than most, and Yuli seems incapable of hitting below .270. The power might not be big-time for long, but he is currently hitting dingers. “Hittin’ Dingers,” a song about Cougs parallel parking.

Brett Phillips – I debated including Phillips, Isaac Paredes and/or Vidal Brujan, and would you look at that, they’ve all been included!

Willi Castro – One of my Draft & Hold teams has been helped by Willi Castro and Jace Peterson recently, and hurt by literally every other hitter I drafted in the first five rounds. Get hot, Matt Olson, you giant bozo!

Nolan Gorman – Here’s me going over Nolan Gorman:

Subscribe to our Youtube channel by clicking that, and clicking subscribe. It’s free and makes me smile.

Jonathan Schoop – Recently, Gerardo Parra retired, and I regret to inform you we will never get a double play combo of Parra/Schoop to see a Baby Shark.

Brendan Rodgers – In Coors, he’s a top 10 MI. Outside of Coors, I’m not sure I’d roster him in an 18-team league, and that’s without even looking at his home and away numbers. I couldn’t give two splits.

Tommy La Stella – My suggestion for the Giants’ DH spot is to make it Tommy LG Stella, and the LG is Luis Gonzalez. Though, they also have Darin Ruf. Make it Stella Menageatrois?

Ha-Seong Kim – Wasn’t a great week for shortstop suggested buys, tee bee aitch. Do I really foresee a lot of people grabbing Kim? Not really, unless you want your Eminem card pulled.

Gio Urshela – There’s an opening for Urshela to be the Twins’ three-hole hitter, which is so freakin’ funny. The other day they had Garlick in that slot. Great if you’re in a night game worried about vampires, not great in general.

Jace Peterson – Going on two weeks with Jace Peterson being recommended, and nothing possibly going through my brain except 57 hours of Dateline episodes about Laci Peterson. “Hello, I’m Keith Morrison, and I’m here in this beautiful bucolic town, where no one suspected a thing, as Michael washed blood off his boat in his driveway.”

Mike Moustakas – Mostly, Mostsuckass, but lately Moistasskiss.

Hunter Dozier – Simply, listing him here because Christian Walker was already listed. I kid. On the 7-day Player Rater, Dozier has been less sleepy than usual.

Emmanuel Rivera – A new name to the mix, so get ready to find out about Emmanuel Rivera! The excitement, I can hear it from here! He has good contact, solid eye, might hit .260, but not a ton of power, and no speed. He’s been getting starts at 3rd with Bobby Witt Jr. moving to short. Can call him Ozark, because he’s the Missouri Rivera.

Eli White – Another guy who needs an explanation — fun! Eli White was the go-to actor any time there was a Jewish gangster. Wait, that’s not right. He’s become the leadoff hitter in Texas, and has 30-steal speed and maybe 10-homer power. He’s what I was expecting from Lane Thomas this preseason, and Lane Thomas became…Well, I have Thomas on fantasy teams, and I think he retired. The worry with White is he might hit .190.

Ben Gamel – *pulling a string on a conspiracy corkboard*…If Gamel became Bryan Reynolds, then who is Bryan Reynolds? *pulls string on the corkboard from a picture of Bryan Reynolds to a picture of a toilet*

Brad Miller – Fun fact! A Bra Miller is a brassiere koozie for beer — let me on Shark Tank! And Brad Miller is a hot schmotato.

Wil Myers – For some reason, I’m reminded of Jason Heyward. Just two guys who had such high hopes and feel like they completely disappointed their whole career. Any hoo! Myers has been decent recently. On the 7-day Player Rater, he was next to Tyler Naquin when I wrote this up. Call them Tylers, if you Wil.

Kyle Lewis – He’s calling from inside the house! Ahhh!!! The house is T-Mobile, and he’s about to be activated.

Kole Calhoun – You know the Rangers either were on the road in good hitters’ parks recently, or it was a bad week for outfielders on waivers, when I’ve listed two Rangers’ outfielders. You be the judge!

Cristian Javier – I like Javier, in general, so grab him, but this is a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to the local public library.

Michael Lorenzen – This is also a Streamonator call. “Do you have the book, How to Win Friends and Influence People? I wanna re-read the first half for the 17th time.”

Brooks Raley – More like Brooks Ending-the-other-team’s-Raley! I nailed it! High five me! No? Low five? No? Okay.

Paul Sewald – Mentioned on this week’s podcast, but I have no idea who the M’s closer is. Sewald should be, but I don’t think he is. When Ken Giles returns, he might be the closer, but that might not be until after the All-Star Break. Andres Munoz is a great option, but I don’t think Scott Servais thinks so.

Emilio Pagan – At some point, Pagan will blow up, and I’ll mutter, “Should’ve listened to Geraldo about satanic worship,” but for now he’s been great, getting saves, and way more the prototypical closer for the Twins, than Duran.

Hansel Robles – Likely the best bet in Boston for saves, which makes one think, “Why did the Red Sox not sign one single decent reliever this past year?”

Adam CimberBullpen Chart is updated daily with changes, if there’s actual changes. What’s going on with Jordan Romano? I don’t know but it’s grating. (You’re walking right into some puns today.)

Brock Burke – Welcome back to Wild On E! and I’m your host, Brock Burke! My velocity is up to 95 MPH, gaining three miles per hour, and it’s translated into way more strikeouts. This episode of Wild On! is like Maxim magazine in TV form, but I’m not Wild On! the plate, showing great command.

SELL

Michael Kopech – Welp, this one sucks. This sucks for me because I have Kopech in many leagues. I had no idea what a mess his peripherals were, so when I learned it, I took a five-second power nap. I do not like learning bad news! His strikeout and walk rate are downright yawnstipating. Maybe they need a five-second siesta. His BABIP is goofy low, very lucky and unsustainable. His hair handsome — his homers allowed unsustainable! I don’t want to continue; it’s too painful. Kopech should be usable, but his ERA is telling a story his other numbers are not supporting. Stupid unsupportive numbers! I wouldn’t trade him for an Exxon credit card with a $5 credit limit, but I would go to our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.

Hey Grey! What are your thoughts on Eloy in a keeper league (12 teams keep 8 $260 budget). I can keep him for $16 next year.

I’m desperate for saves (and also just lost Freddy peralta to whatever hopefully minor shoulder thing) …. and was just offered my Eloy (16) for his McKenzie Gore ($8 to keep) and $0 Clay Holmes (I feel like he’s about to overtake Chapman).

1. Is that enough for you to move Eloy here?

2. If I could get him to throw in a nonkeeper Schwarber Altuve or Arenado would that make a difference?

Thanks!! PS never thought I’d be looking at Eloy this way…

I have a couple options on my NL Only dynasty 12-team..
I can claim a hitter Morel— regular claim (meaning teams below me in the standings have first shot) or bid at least the $5 minimum out of my season’s $50 Free Agent $or so to improve my chances.. do we think he’s worth it, or headed back down when Nico and others get healthy.
I could also claim a pitcher- Steele, another Cub, Santillan, or Kinley (if we think he’s on the verge of barging out Bard).
The other options are less appealing- Guillorme, Suwinski, Fast Friedl?
Thoughts?
Thanks

Chapman had another meltdown today.

c, In one (12-team) league, I have Chapman and three possibly three other closers). Drop Chapman for an SP (likely a good streamer).

seriously, did DET have this planned out, so in case (when) e-rod got hurt they just input another e-rod; this is the GM version of when maddon and other twits bench a good hitter for an off day and just input his replacement, no matter how awful a hitter that is, in the same lineup slot. here though, the GM probably just didn’t want to have to learn a new name, so just have another e-rod SP (on somehow the same 5 day rotation day seemingly) ready to go.

Margot Connor Joe or Yepez… Gallo out there also and it is OBP but man beardless Gallo is so bad! I feel so bad for him man he was a homer stud with his sexy beard and comes to the yanks loses his beard mojo feels unsexy and falls apart. No swagger bring back the beard! Maybe I will let Gallo sit on waivers and pick him up when he gets moved to a team thay allows beards

Not yet, but I’d jump on him right away. Rizzo is playing the “he’s the future at SS” and there’s “no need to rush him” BS. Should be soon though. I have a spot on my bench open for him once India is back, and I figure he’d get the lineup spot over Franco or Cooper depending on matchups.

Had two good weeks against the top two teams putting me in 3rd place in our 12 teamer. Squad below and WW options for your review. Thanks!
C- Stephenson
CI- Freeman, Eugenio, Tellez
MI- Lindor, Polanco, France
OF- play 5… Acuna, Robert, Happ, Yepez, JulRod
Util- Joe
SP- Montas, Cease, Berrios, McClanhan, L Garcia, Ober, Taillon, Streamer Spot (Marco tomorrow)
RP- Hader, E Diaz, Holmes,

1. I needed Ober and Taillon for today’s games. Are they streamers in a 12 teamer or worth holding to take a look? Yankees starters win games.
2. No bench bat but would like one. Do I use my streamer spot for one of Naylor, Kike, Pollack, Vaughn, Drury, Willi or keep the streamer spot and cut Ober or Taillon?
3. Finally, I have tried to increase my HRs and RBIs with Tellez, Eugenio but my team guys singles (Freeman!) ugh. Patience or go into trade mode?
4. Related to question #3 I was offered Tucker for Cease and Montas. Seemed a bit steep but….

Happy Sunday Grey….I think I need to upgrade my catchers. Been using Nola and Diaz but they have both been pretty bad. I have Jansen coming off DL this week so have to drop one. Hoping Jansen regains that great stroke he had late last year and beginning of this year. Zunino,Wm Contreras(might be breaking out but playing time might be an issue), and Serven possible FAs. Two catcher league so which to would you go with? Thanks!

I am out of DL slots; I’m willing to carry (only 1) dead roster spot. My current IL guys are Tatis (my ETA 1-Jul); Schertzer (15-Jul); and India (15-Jun). Who’s my cut?
a. Shane Baz (late-Jun)
b. Tyler O’Neil (no idea on expected ETA)

No idea what my team needs will be when they will be ready — so question is who would likely be more valuable when off IL.

RP (max 5): bender, a.diaz, rainey, sera anthony (how long till PHI figures out that alvarado/hand/familia are all a good bit worse than him, he’s still getting earlier in game holds anyway though), stephan

if not for the innings being really low i might drop a RP here but i’m already on good pace to easily make 1250 with this many starters already.

wasn’t hard, simple deduction of this statement:

clearly it’s some 2 of them for another 1 of them. only one that makes sense being alone would be nola (i.e. i doubt anybody is trading nola + either for the last one). then the “don’t need steals” clearly indicated that you are the one moving off the lone steals source here (or at least that’s likely, either way this is probably nola being the choice though i’d think) thus you already have kopech/j-rod.

Good Afternoon Grey,

I am playing down 1 roster spot with O’Neil just going to IL. Would you go with Kim right now or stash Roansy? The drop would be Diaz.

If you could add to my roster for ROS (starting June 1), who would want out of the following?

A) Hitters (pick 2): Garcia, Hoerner, Kim, Cooper, Franco, and Chavis
B) Pitchers (pick 2): Liberatore, Roansy, Junis, Quintana, and Suarez

INF: K Ruiz, Jo-Ram, France, Donaldson, Lindor, Polanco
OF: Lu-Rob, Ward, Renfroe, Teoscar
INF/OF: Bell, Schwarber, Naylor(IL)

SP: Wheeler, Montas, Montgomery, Eovaldi, Ed-Rod, Kopech, Gonsolin, Whitlock, Cobb, Ober(IL)
RP: Iglesias, Duran

I’m already in roster violation so I can’t trade. I can hold out like this for the time being and just lose any production from Naylor and Ober while waiting for the next couple guys to be sent to IL and that’s Plan A.

But sooner or later I may need to get right by dropping up to 2 players, so I’m curious who you think are the two most expendable here, in order, if it comes to that?

Thanks, man!

I asked a couple weeks ago but wondering if answer has changed. I didn’t need to make my decision then but I do now. I have Reynolds (27 yrs old) and Bassitt (33) contracts expiring. I can extend one for 2 years, the other walks. Who to extend?

Also, how much FAAB out of 100$ for Adley? Yesterday you told me 3$ for MJ

1. Adley Rutschman called up, my current catcher is Keiburt Ruiz, should rutschman take over as my primary catcher or just be a speculative add.
2. Mathew Liberatore debut Saturday against the pirates, I don’t know much about him, would you say he’s better than George Kirby? I was big on kirby but his 5 earned runs his last outing (several leaving the yard) was a turn off

Last two week’s sells have hit close to home. Would you trade Kopech and Marte for Goldschmidt?

I have Sanchez and Kirk as my two C in 2C league. Melendez is on the wire, should I drop one of my C for him? I have Ohtani and Yulli G in my Util spots.

You told me the other day to improve my infield by trading Buehler. Buehler/Realmuto for Pete Alonso/merrifield. I’ve been trying to unload realmuto for a while. I got him after ‘19 and think he’s a product of the juiced ball. At least enough where I don’t have patience for him. What’cha think?

1) Are you leaning towards Teoscar turning things around or not?

2)Would you drop him for either Happ or Santander or both?
