For next year’s All-Star Game:  The best of the AL and NL will face off against just ex-Mets players. Maybe they can get Steven Matz (4 1/3 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 8.20) to pitch the Home Run Derby too. He’s useless otherwise. Oh, don’t worry, Matz is a great 2nd half pitcher, so wait until you see him around September 1st. Wrong city transpo line and total mixed metaphor, but the Nats T’d off on Matz like they were his daddy and Asdrubal Cabrera (4-for-4, 3 runs, 5 RBIs and his 2nd and 3rd homer) was in charge of doling out the punishment. Then Juan Soto (3-for-4, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer) was the uncle who came in to tell Asdrubal that the Mets had enough, only to wait until no one was looking and lay a noogie on them himself. Then, as Sexy Dr. Pepper left the room, he tagged in Treat Urner (3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer) who laid all 155 pounds of himself into them. If the Mets ever let Pete Alonso go, he might be the first to hit five homers in a game. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Stephen Strasburg – Says his hand isn’t 100%. Sounds like something Terry Francona should say too.

Marcus Stroman – Opted out of the 2020 season. Here’s to my 2021 Marcus Stroman sleeper posts already being written!

Spencer HowardPhillies are preparing Howard and Velasquez to both start Friday. So many new rules this year, now two starters can go at once.

Aaron Nola – 8 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 2.79. Phils jumped out to a huge early lead and Nola coasted out to the Ivictory Coast for a night stay at the W.

Bryce Harper – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .303. That home run was dedicated to the Phanatic and that big ol’ green butt.

Jean Segura – 1-for-3 and his 1st homer, hitting 1st homer. So far Jean has been as silent as the 1920s movie star he sounds like he was named after.

Didi Gregorius – 1-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .263. Phils really took to Newcomb literally.

J.T. Realmuto – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer. Some guys who I wish I owned irritate me when they do well, but I never would own a top catcher, so I couldn’t care less when one does well. Get yours, Jerry Tomato.

Sean Newcomb – 1 1/3 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 11.20, and booted from the Braves’ rotation. Since I have so many teams, I honestly didn’t remember if I owned Newcomb. I would, wasn’t sure if I did. So I went through all my fantasy teams to make sure I didn’t have Sean Newcomb and, while doing that, it felt like I was in a horror film running past the front door to go upstairs. Thankfully, it was merely a cat jumping out of the closet. False alarm. Whew. The Braves need a starter for Wednesday, then maybe five days from now with Newcomb discarded like an Oldcomb. I have Bryse Wilson in one league (deep NL-Only), and they have Chacin, Faultysandwitz, Ian Anderson, Tomlin, literally, you name it.

Travis d’Arnaud – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .400. Someone put Ted Williams’s frozen head on the counter to start defrosting it; The French Terminator is making his play at .400.

Austin Riley – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .167. Can homeboy cut his Ks by like 5%? He is miserable to own.

Trevor Story – 1-for-3, 3 runs and his 6th homer. This Story’s stretching out the “happily ever after.”

Charlie Blackmon – 4-for-5, 3 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .484. He’s going to hit .500 this year, isn’t he? Better leave out Ted Williams’s frozen head out and put earmuffs on him.

Chris Owings – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer. Grey with the batty call! Someone light me a cigarette. That was sweet — was it a beedi? Also, it is still insane that Owings is not only getting at-bats, but playing more than Tapia and Hilliard.

Jon Gray – 3 1/3 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 6.41 vs. Robbie Ray – 3 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 10.59. Robbie Ray/Jon Gray is January 2020’s hope and potential of a new year vs. what the last five months have been.

Kole Calhoun – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer, as he hits leadoff. Been saying for a week to pick up Calhoun, and now he’s in Coors? Echoing chef’s kiss.

Nick Ahmed – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 2 steals (1, 2). Here’s a pro tip in daily leagues, just pick up anyone who is playing in Coors.

Madison Bumgarner – Hit the 10-day IL with a mid-back strain. His back was hurt carrying the blame for his 87 MPH fastball.

C.J. Cron – Left last night’s game with a knee injury. It happened off a ninja ground ball that felled him, so Norris had to save the day.

JaCoby Jones – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, an inside-the-park home run that was gifted by Adam Engel, the White Sox center fielder. This comes after Eloy gifted an inside-the-park homer last week to Yelich. Did Oprah buy her hometown team?

Niko Goodrum – 4-for-4, 2 runs and his 3rd homer. Now has three big games in the last four. Ya know what goes with a hot schmotato? Goodrum.

Sean Manaea – 2 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 9.00. Going on three starts where I’ve said some variation of, “How can it be that I can tell Manaea isn’t right and needs to be shut down but the A’s can’t tell?” And that’s me paraphrasing me!

Matt Chapman – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 6 RBIs and his 5th and 6th homer. Told you a Matt on the A’s would break out! *slowly backs out of the room, but backs into room filled with Matt Olson owners, dodges tomato*

Anthony Rendon – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .143. Manaea is such a mess he’s giving up homers to Rendon. Woof.

Mike Trout – 4-for-5, 4 runs, 3 RBIs and his 6th and 7th homer, hitting .333. Is this guy new, not sure I’ve heard of him before.

Shohei Ohtani – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer. I was thinking if Ohtani was good enough in this short season, Angels might come to their senses and only have him hit next year, but he’s had a good year with the bat before and it didn’t matter.

Joe Kelly – Placed on the 10-day IL the same day he went to appeal his 8-game suspension. I take back everything I said about the Dodgers being smart on how to manage their pitchers and fake IL stints. They could’ve just let him serve his suspension while he rested his shoulder. That’s a Grade 1 Brain Strain.

Dustin May – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 2.75. This Giant Human Carrot is a joy to watch, but losing to a Padres’ bullpen game makes me a very hungry rabbit.

Garrett Richards – Pushed back and now likely won’t be a two-start starter. Speaking of which, have there been any two-start starters this year? You gotta really be living right to avoid all cancelled games and get starts in the year 2020.

Adrian Houser – 5 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.65. Meh, pretty whatever start, but it was a tough matchup. Real star of the Brewers’ pitching yesterday was Freddy Peralta coming into relief and throwing 4 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 1 walk, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.60. You’d think the Brewers had the 90s Braves pitching rotation to not find room for Peralta.

Keston Hiura – 2-for-4 and his 4th homer, hitting .268. Not sure if you saw his homer, but he pulled an outside slider he A) Had no business hitting. B) Hit it nearly 400 feet. C) There’s no C.

Luis Urias – 1-for-4, 1 run, as he was activated from the Covid IL, and now could become the Brewers’ shortstop and show everyone really why it was so dumb to trade away Trent Grisham for him.

Randy Dobnak – 5 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 0.90. Podcaster Ralph and I talk at length on today’s podcast that’s coming later today (I think) about Dobnak. We both agreed that Streamonator not liking him ever makes sense, because his strikeouts are the same as his Uber rating, around 5.

Eddie Rosario – 1-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .211. Was the only damage against Houser, but it still counts as they say at the calculator factory.

Lance McCullers – 7 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 5 Ks, ERA at 6.10. Truly incredible how everyone was pulling for Lance McCullers to throw a no hitter. All I saw last night was people saying no hitter repeatedly. Doing whatever they could by repeating no hitter no hitter no hitter. Over and over. That’s how you get good luck with a no hitter, right? Honestly, when he was pitching a no hitter all I could think about was, “Please don’t hold the Giants to no hits today so they’re due tomorrow when I stream Bielak.”

Austin Slater – 2-for-3 and a slam (3) and legs (4), hitting .333. You don’t even want to know where Austin Slater is on the Player Rater. It’ll just piss you off. Let’s just say I did grab him in one league.

Donovan Solano – 2-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI, hitting .458. Welp, he’s Tony Gwynn Jr. Jr., so there’s that.

Kyle Lewis – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .373. They said Kyle Lewis cooled off. I say your thermometer is on Celsius and you thought it was Fahrenheit.

Dylan Moore – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .333. If you look at exit velocity on Statcast, it says, “It’s way too early to glean anything here, don’t you have other stuff to do?” But if you look past that pop-up warning, Dylan Moore is killing the ball, and should be owned in all leagues.

Kyle Seager – 2-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .297. I know it makes no sense to own a bunch of M’s but we’re playing a 60-game season in the middle of a pandemic. What makes sense?

Derek Dietrich – Signed by the Rangers. Out da box, Dietrich is better than Odor, yay or nah? 100% yay, rightskis? …Sorry, I was having this surfer I met at a longboard shop write this blurb. Didn’t work out.

Kyle Gibson – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.11. Ugh, usually he doesn’t go sideways until Paso’s the 5th inning.

J.D. Martinez – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 1st homer, hitting .233. Finally. Just Dong has been more like Just Do.

Andrew Benintendi – 0-for-0, 1 run, hitting .056. He needs a new team, like, say, one in Japan.

Charlie Morton – Hit the IL with shoulder inflammation. My guess is he’s not right all year. As they say at Western Union, don’t shoot the messenger.

Manuel Margot – 4-for-4, 2 runs, 1 RBI and his 1st steal. You don’t think Kevin Cash would bench someone after a four-hit night? You don’t know Kevin Cash.

Ryan Yarbrough – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.71. I had such high hopes for Yarbrough. Apparently, it screws him up to start a game. I’d fall back on the Streamonator for Yarbrough now, and it doesn’t like his next one.

Clint Frazier – Called up by the Yankees to act as a 4th outfielder and a reflective shield for the sun. In deeper leagues, I can see adding him, but the Yankees have never shown any inclination they would play Frazier regularly. Weird, because ginger makes me regular.

Mike Clevinger – Won’t start Tuesday because he also violated protocols by going out to party with Plesac. We need an 8-part 30 for 30 for this season, and I can’t wait for the episode about when the Indians go to The Floozy Trumpet for wings and things.

    Grey! Need some SPs. Chatwood? TC was dropped after the shelling he took but his peripherals look good; 13+K/9, low 2 FIP/XFIP. Also mixing in new cutter. Must own in 12team 28 roster league? Rather have Mahle or Kikuchi?
    Thanks!

      kikuchi not great upcoming matchups (@ HOU, vs LAD), mahle appears to be out of rotation with super quick miley return. in deepers i’d hold mahle to see if that doesn’t (hopefully it does) turn out to be a miley blowup (mahle might even get into that game it’s on his day, also called today).

    Nice article, Grey!
    I started Yarbrough yesterday, so I was watching Rays game, then just dropped him.
    he’s not even a soft thrower but also a coward.
    when he faces right handed batters, he never attack the zone after 0-2. he throws meaningless 3 balls and hitters hit 6th pitch hard. i hate this type of pitchers.
    in short, i haaaaaaaaate him.

    Grey!

    What a report – that ain’t no retort!

    a. Yesterday took a sigh of relief….No pitchers on my teams pitched!!! Felt relieved, really.

    b. Pitcher post-pocalypse in effect. I guess it’s warm so balls are flying is one reason.

    c. Bet the Mets would have loved to hit off Matz too. That’d be cool, right? Each team plays against the opposing pitcher and then the opposing pitchers swap teams and kind of like in replay bridge the team that gets the best stats overall in the two games wins! ‘Cept both pitchers would have their arms fall off before the ASG.

    d. Seriously have seen many pitchers in there for way too long before the manager reluctantly brings the hook. There’s enough bullpen arms for managers not to allow what happened to Bum, Matz, Gray, Newcomb there’s a host of others. Guys just getting pummeled for no good reason except to destroy their ratios.

    e. Hope Newcomb gets by waivers and can rejoin the Braves for their next series against the Phils. The Phils are addicted to Newcomb.

    f. Own Moore in every league. Last week was concerned by the Ks piling up, he had like 8 in 2 games so I dropped him then picked him back up after the HR the other day. Now he will never be dropped EVER, well until September 27, 2020.

    g. MLB quote of the day for August 11, 2020

    ‘You lose, you smile and you come back the next day. You win, you smile, you come back the next day.’

    George Kenneth Griffey, Jr., aka ‘Junior’ and ‘The Kid’ (not to be confused with Gary Carter). Junior has so many records and could have been THE BEST if it weren’t for some injuries later on. He holds the record for HOF consideration with a 99.32% approval rating. With his father he had a few father-son firsts like first back-to-back HRs and back-to-back singles.

    His 162-game average…

    686 PA, 594 AB, 101 R, 169 H, 32 2B, 2 3B, 38 HR, 111 RBI, 80 BB, 108 K, .284/.370/.538 slash line, 136 OPS+, 320 TB

    His best year, probably the strike-shortened 1994 season. Please discuss, his 1997 MVP season was also really great.

    493 PA, 433 AB, 94 R, 140 H, 24 2B, 4 3B, 40 HR, 90 RBI, 56 BB, 73 K, .323/.402/.674 slash line, 171 OPS+, 292 TB in only 111 games. Had he maintained that kind of a level he easily would have crushed the 1997 season in all stats.

      • galica says:
        (link)

        Grey!!

        a. Thank you much. The quote works for baseball but also fantasy baseball, so it’s a win-win!

        b. Also, each 2 game period this year is like a week’s worth of games last year, right? Can’t dwell too long on guys like Cabrera or Cron. Btw, I had Cron rostered yesterday then decided to drop him for Calhoun (!! I know stupid me didn’t have him before that, but I have him now) for AZ games in Coors. Then after I’d dropped Cron he got a mysterious illness (probably a heart attack after he learned I had dropped him.).

        c. What a bum is Mike Trout! 2 homers? Damn, great father figure he is!

        d. Incredible all these pitchers getting DFA’d right left and center. Surprised Holland or Homer Bailey haven’t lost their jobs yet in this weird environment.

        Cheers,
        Ante

    • c says:

      that Xander, Paddack and Hader package is interesting if it’s a dynasty league and you need pitching. I still like Trout more, but it does depend on needs.

      Trout for Belly? I’d want more. Like Belly + a pitcher in the Carrasco range.

      But that’s me.

    Hello Grey,

    I’m going to rest an ice cold Muncy and his fractured finger for awhile until he hopefully heats up. Should I grab a hot Moreland, Aguilar, or a recently activated Hosmer and his improved launch angle for the time being?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts

              Coolwhip says:
              (link)

              in retrospect, Odor’s underlying metrics never supported his success and still don’t: avg or worse barrel%, EV, hardhit%, and lack of plate discipline. Which looking at those now, yuck, yuck, yuck.

              • The Great Knoche says:
                (link)

                Yup. Didn’t touch him then or now.

                Another one, which might be worth a deep dive into is Yaz. Small sample, but plate discipline looks a lot better. Haven’t looked at Barrels or Hard hit, but guessing he’s made at least a small stride.

      • Coolwhip

        Coolwhip says:
        (link)

        hahaha touche… ;-) not good, late on fastballs which was his strength last season. Not sure the cause yet. Was waiting another week of data to dive into what his issues were, so far seems a change in his stance is making a longer swing rather than the short compact one he had last year.

        • The Great Knoche says:
          (link)

          Lack of regular playing time isn’t helping either.

          • Coolwhip

            Coolwhip says:
            (link)

            for sure, Baldelli trying to “preserve” him with Avila (who’s been semi-successful) hasn’t helped the early struggle. He needs more ABs to work himself out, likely seeing way more offspeed.

    There are a lot of things that irritate me about the selfishness of Plesac and Clevinger…but, they also have a teammate who recovered from – or still has – leukemia!

    On another note, I’ve learned the Giants and M’s offense isn’t actually pretty good and they can hit. Didn’t see that coming this year.

    Lastly, would you take Kyle Lewis or Luis Robert ROS? If Robert hit higher than 7th in the order regularly and he could collect more counting stats it would be easier for me to decide.

    B). Man if ‘slam and legs’ was ‘surf n turf’ then maybe austin “Kelly”Slater would make more sense. Guy is hot fire at los moment!!

    C). Drop schoop (finna be PPD) for Asdrubal? OR drop schoop for Aguilar and leave the 2-bag unattended until Berti (already own) gets his 2B eligibility here in 2-3 games?

      NYY for some asinine reason tend to NOT give c.green holds (this goes back years by the way), see tonight, they use ottavino in the 7th of standard holds spot (makes sense, this inning also could’ve gone to green) then they use the often horrible cessa in the 8th, BEFORE turning to green (who got 2/2 outs and saved them there from what could’ve been huge lead coughed up). montero/pagan/green, if ratios green might very well be at the top though

    Who’s the drop here in an OPS league? Todd Frazier, Aguilar, or Dozier?

    Would you trade Sal Perez for any of the following, either straight up or paired with a pitcher (DeSclafani maybe?) in a 2-for-1: Berrios, Maeda, Greinke, Paddack, Corbin?

    I’m currently in first place with 102 points. My weakest categories right now is steals, but I’m not sure there are any speed mavens to be had out there in trade; steals are down and the teams leading my league are all doing so on the combined strength of their players (which I would be, if Trea and Laureano were running better). My next weakest category is Ks, where I still have 9 points, so I don’t **need** anything right now, but figured if IKF sticks and gets some steals, he may be worth more to me than Sal Perez.

    12-team, 10-cat, redraft Roto league
    C – Perez; 1B – Abreu; 2B – Moore; 3B – Chapman, SS – Trea, OF – Brantley, Judge, Laureano; Util – Dozier; Bench – Ohtani, IKF

        That would be my offer, anyone. One guy owns Berrios, Maeda, Greinke, for ex., and he’s getting nothing from the catcher position and he’s signaled a little desperation. Trying to see if I can pounce or, at least get a counter offer.

    Grey,

    I am thinking about dropping Kyle Schwarber. These are my choices as replacements:

    Austin “Dont call me Christian, But A.C. is ok” Slater
    Roman Quinn
    Victor Reyes
    Adam Duvall

    Thoughts? I am leaning towards Slater and Quinn

    I am thinking about dropping Kyle Schwarber for one of these outfielders

    Austin”Don’t call me Christian, but A.C. is ok” Slater

    I’m thinking either Quinn or Slater. Thoughts?

    Daily 5×5: Who is the drop with Tim Anderson coming back today:

    Bench Bats (but useful for position flexibility and starting when others have an off day, in fact, both starting today): Pollock, Kendrick

    Possible Pitching drops: Spencer Howard (who I just paid to pick up), Diaz or Wick (closers always useful, both starting today as well)

    Having a tough time with this one! Thanks!

    Hey grey! In a keeper 12 teamer obp ops league where my chances of winning this year are entirely luck based on my pitching, would you trade a nonkeeper Freeman for the other guy’s $8 Yordan Alvarez?

    JaCoby Jones statcast data is bonkers. Someone dropped him in my league. I don’t feel like I have anywhere to put him though and don’t know if he is worth grabbing

    Current OF (5 spots): acuna, Soto, springer, eloy, Lewis,
    Utl: Ohtani
    Bench: Adell

    • Mantis Tobaggan MD says:

      maybe eventually adell but i’d not do that yet. might get lucky and springer gets DL’d.

    woah baby, about to cram all the NFL info into my brain for FF from say feb – now and i’m going backwards on the football side to do that (i’m not completely in the dark, i get those football guys daily emails (they are only “off” during maybe feb-right before the NFL draft) which are like longer rotoworld blurbs written by smarter, more informed people, roughly a dozen per day on average), and last year i’m pretty sure it was only maybe 7-8 pages of stuff, THIS year it’s 24 pages since the last one i know i read back in feb. props to those guys (DT a main one).

    As I watch Adalberto strike out with the bases loaded and 1 out and then Suarez strike out with a man on 3rd and 1 out – I am starting to think maybe drafting bats early wasn’t the right move…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Depends which ones

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        I went based off the rankings – though I did debate for a bit about Suarez or snagging Matt Chapman early – he ended up going in the 10th round to another team cause I thought I’d be set with Suarez… but as a refresher, my bats are:

        C- Will Smith
        1B- Matt Olson
        2B- Villar
        3B- Suarez
        SS- Story
        OF- Betts, Bellinger, Laureano
        UTIL- Mondesi

        I’m sure they’ll wake up – just hope it’s before it’s the final 2 weeks of the season

          That doesn’t look bad

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            Nope it doesn’t look bad – and my pitching which i waited late on ain’t too shabby either:

            Sonny Gray, Dilson Lamet, Max Fried, Zac Gallen, and Carlos Carrasco leading the way, and then a bunch of RPs to get that SVs/HLDs

            • Grey

              Grey says:

              Actually looks really good, hopefully it comes around

        • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
          (link)

          in that league i was mentioning i have mondesi/olson/bellinger also. and narvaez (even worse than w.smith so far, and on MIL who, unlike LAD might end up a horrible offense)

    • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
      (link)

      yesterday i was talking with somebody i know about how many top end hitters aren’t doing well yet out of say the top 50 ADP hitters. it was like 22 of them. you aren’t alone. i’ve won AVG in a money league twice, the first matchup with a .208 the 2nd i was winning all week (mostly easily) and won with a .252 vs a near .200. this isn’t rare this year. i hate AVG as a category and that is only league i’m even in with that.

      he’s the 9th luckiest (for AVG anyway) hitter thus far. his power is for real though, and up until his leg injuries (that went on for years) he had speed too. expected AVG is .248 going into today.

    Team hitting under .200 for the year. Nothing for it but to hope it gets better, right?

    What is the type of grass does this Buffalo stadium have? It is the right type of Bermuda it might play pretty nicely with Vlad Jr’s 70% GB rate.

      a lot of those minor grasses do move the ball along quite easily compared to most majors’.

    BAL @ PHI had quite a battle of who’s bullpen is worse, i was hoping we’d get a few more innings of that. i have a lot of harper, didi, segura, bruce (depending on depth of league), hoskins too.
