The other day Cougs told me her eye drops went from $20 a bottle to $240.  Naturally, I didn’t even know she used eye drops, because I don’t pay attention to much aside from who’s the backup catcher on the Nationals.  So, I said to her, “$240?!  Wait, you’ve been spending $20 on eye drops up until now?!  Why?”  She replied, “I have dry eyes, you know this.”  “Dry eyes?  Get some Visine!”  “Visine doesn’t work.”  Thinking on my feet, I responded, “Fill a bucket with water and I’ll dunk your head.”  She didn’t go for that, so I continued, “Buy a $12 Super Soaker and I’ll spray your eyes whenever your eyes are feeling dry!”  She started to leave the room.  “Is this a hot flash thing?  Don’t buy $240 eye drops!  Please!”  And that was how that conversation ended.  Segue Alert!  Nick Senzel could be a bucket of water instead of $240 eye drops.  There were a lot of expensive eye drop, middle infielders at the draft, but if you grab Nick Senzel, he could be the same and free off of waivers.  In Prospector Ralph’s top 100 prospects for fantasy baseball, he compared Senzel to Alex Bregman.  Seems like a great comp to me.   Senzel should be a 20+ HRs, 15+ SBs, .270 hitter immediately.  The only thing stopping Senzel is ‘When will he be called up?’  Word on the street he could be up this weekend.  If that’s the case, you’re gonna wanna own him in every league.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Pedro Severino – I’m pretty sure Pedro Severino can throw 96 MPH and get the Nats out of a two-men-on jam with no outs.  He’d also be my choice for the starting catcher in Washington and not Wieters.  Seems like Dave Martinez agrees.

Colin Moran – I Googled “Moran” + “Launch Angle” and I found all about Erin Moran’s historic, meteoric rise from small-town girl in Burbank, California to Joanie on the original TV classic, Joanie Loves Chachi.  I hear Alan Sepinwall is writing a book, “Joanie Loves Chachi to ALF:  The Original Golden Age of TV.”  As for Colin Moran, he’s off to a hot start, and there’s talk he’s got that new, sexy swing.

Jed Lowrie – No one ever wants to own Lowrie even though they should.  I’m guilty of this too, Lennie Briscoe.

Yolmer Sanchez – Another one of those sexy names you wanna take to the tool shed.  Speaking of tool sheds, if I had one and a son, I’d have a sign for my son above my toolbox that read, “Hammer, You Can’t Touch This.”

Ryan Flaherty – He’s already cooled off from his scorching start, and he kinda sucks.  Apparently, Flaherty won’t get you everywhere.  However, maybe he still has some petrol in the fuel tank.

Niko Goodrum – Speaking of petrol in the fuel tank, get me some of that Goodrum!  Arghh!  Yo, ho!  A pirate’s life for me!  And now I’m mentally transported to Disneyland and I want to yell at the person behind me to stop standing so close.  “Don’t stand so, don’t stand so, don’t stand so close to me!  No, just singing!  You’re good standing on my heels!”  As for Goodrum, he’s a BUY-cardi!  Sorry.  I need a nap.  *three minutes later, claps hands*  I’m back, snitches!  In Triple-A, Goodrum was  a 13/11/.265 guy, which puts him at about 9/15/.220 in the majors.

Maikel Franco – Bit surprised to see he’s not owned in more leagues (the cut-off for this post is 50% owned in ESPN — old habits yadda3).  Then I look at Franco’s stat-line and I’m impressed with how Maikel Maikel’s been.  Looks headed for yet another 23-26 homer, .250-ish season.

Dansby Swanson – Podcast Ralph and I talked about Dansby a bit on the last show.  Dansby could be breaking out, but I think that’s still a fairly yawnstipatng breakout.  He’s definitely not going to sustain his .400+ BABIP.  (This is one hell of a buy.  So enticing!)

Franklin Barreto – I’m sorry for the negativity on so many of these Buys.  I would buy all of them for the right price and in the right league.  I mean, Pedro Severino is better than some other catchers, for unstints.  With that said, what are the A’s doing calling Barreto up to sit on the bench?  I want my ticket money back for Moneyball.  Billy Beane’s strategic expertise is the Easter Bunny by way of Santa Claus’ workshop.

Aledmys Diaz – To paraphrase The Avett Brothers, “I am a breathing time machine, and my Delorean is gassed trying to remember when Aledmys was good.”  However, he was, and could be again.  So far, so good.  Or if a furniture salesman is reading, sofa, so good.

Teoscar HernandezJays Manager, John Gibbons, might finally be done scratching his butt with Steve Pearce, Grichuk, Pillar and the Gift that keeps Ngiving.  Gibbons was heard saying Teoscar’s coming up, and I grabbed him in one league.

Curtis Granderson – I’d say the Jays are stocking the Buy with a bunch of vets who have seen better days, but it’s kinda redundant.  Mention the Jays and you can only mean vets who have seen better days.

Brian GoodwinAdam Eaton is sidelined for 10 to 120 days, and filling in for him is Goodwin.  Dave Martinez also seems to subscribe to the school of Jim Leyland managing where when a player is injured you just put his replacement in the same lineup spot like you only have one lineup card and you don’t want to have to White-Out too many names.  Honestly, Goodwin is essentially Eaton with less batting average.  By the by, Essentially Eaton is also a great name for a vegan restaurant.  “Hey, this soy chicken is Essentially Eaton!”

Franchy Cordero – I just gave you my Franchy Cordero fantasy.  It was written while selling my car to pay for Cougs’ eye drops.

Mallex Smith – Yeah, all about that SAGNOF, but this is also a Hitter-Tron pick.  Like when it picks a car with a custom car bra to rub its metal finger along.

Keynan Middleton – I see in a lot of places either Blake Parker still listed as the closer or as the Angels having a committee.  Hey, I’m the first one to say The Sciosciapath needs meds to keep him from batting Trout ninth to turn over the lineup, but Middleton looks like the closer.

Adam Ottavino – His season so far, put in terms you’ll understand:  if Ottavino started a game and went eight innings, he struck out 16 guys.

Matt Albers – Hey, hey, hey, it’s Fatt Albers!  If I had to put the Brewers’ closer job at percentages, I’d say Albers is likely 80% the closer, Jacob Barnes is 12% and the field is 8%.  I’m not saying the field is not technically better.  In related news, Albers is at 80% full after two porterhouses and a milkshake.

Nate Jones – Soria or Jones is a matter of good vs. experience.  Good usually wins out, except in every facet of life that annoys you.

Nick Pivetta – Usually I stick to SON calls for my starter pickups in the weekly Buy, but Pivetta has me old school shook.  Before shook meant scared and when it still meant ‘all shook up.’  I want to stand outside a CVS and sell people on why they should grab Pivetta.  I’m a Girl Scout Shookie!  I’m like Fred Durst circa 1999 and doing it all for the Shookie!  Pivetta has a 10.3 K/9, 1.1 BB/9, 2.35 xFIP with a 94 MPH fastball, a top ten slider, and looks as good as anyone early on.  Grab him!

Ivan Nova – This is a Stream-o-Nator call, like the call it makes to 911 to chat.

Joey Lucchesi – In most leagues, I’d own Lucchesi of the “New York pizza is better than Chicago pizza, fuggedaboutit” Lucchesis, but this is also a Stream-o-Nator call for this weekend.  “No, ma’am, no emergency, unless you consider not having friends an emergency.”

SELL

Eric Thames – As George Bush once said, “Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice and I’m going to drive you off my Texas ranch with a 4×4.  Not a 4×4 car, though, but a Hacksaw Jim Duggan wood block I’ve glued wheels onto.  Wait, is that a 2×4?”  I couldn’t have said it better myself.  Last year, Eric Thames looked like a 50-homer hitter in April.  This year, more of the same.  On our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater, Thames is ranked in the top 25 for right now.  On our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer, it’s a solid buy to get Ian Happ with Thames.  Would I do that?  Yup.  Would I trade Thames for a New Jersey-scented air freshener?  No, find the right deal for yourself.

  3. Bodacious Taters says:
    (link)

    I’m in a 16-team mixed league & the guy in first place (not me) has no Starting Pitchers. The league has no SP/RP requirements nor a minimum Innings Pitched requirement.

    I think it’s a brilliant strategy and works for larger sized league. He clobbering us in ERA, WHIP and Saves. Bottom of barrel in K’s & W’s but an offense that was built by grabbing so many good hitters (& relievers) early. What say you RotoRabbi ?

      @Bodacious Taters: Should always have a minimum Innings Pitched requirement to avoid this happening… It’s lame, but if there’s no rule against it, nothing you can do

    What’s up with Lemathieu (besides his average and the difficulty in spelling his name correctly)? 4 jacks already and NONE of them at Coors Light…. best guess?……is he a new Launch Angle guy or is he a late power bloomer guy perhaps or is this just a weird early hot power streak?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I think it’s too early to draw conclusions, but it’s a good sign for him since Coors will help too

    Thoughts on Chris Taylor? I have plenty of coverage at 2B and OF right now, and Senzel could be the right amount of upside if I drop Taylor! 10 team H2H, and started 0-9-1, so I could use a Bregman!

    I have Senzel (mu)stashed in my minor league spot, but if he is brought up, I have to drop a full timer. The plan all along has been to drop Pujols or Chapman if this happened (or if Bird came off the DL). But Pujols ain’t that bad and Chapman is on fire. My drop candidates for a Senzel call up are: Pujols, Peraza, Mancini or Mazara…or drop trade Senzel. Damn life is hard.

    Thanks for your work. I always look forward to the Friday Buy column, but wouldn’t it be more helpful with a little context, especially the lukewarm buys? Just like a final, I like him more than Player A, but less than Player B. You know, like a banana for scale.

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @psmith922: That’s an exercise in futility. Because then people will just ask about player C-Z. These aren’t even buys for the rest of the season, they’re buys now and he gives you enough info that you should be able to make a decsion. You need speed, there’s Mallex Smith. You want some upside power, grab Franchy. You want a poor man’s Eaton, grab Goodwin. Know what you need.

    Looking to offer a team my Rizzo and Acuna for Trout mid-level pitcher. Which side you taking? Close?

    It’s a Dynasty league OBP

    Duvall worth holding onto at this point? Need to drop Duvall or Pirela when Yelich returns.

    Grey,

    You probably received this question a thousand times, but how long do you wait on Acuna before using waiver priority elsewhere? I have top waiver priority in my league, so I’ve been holding off on waiver bids in our league (the league is continuous waivers, so I can’t add players via FA and not lose a bid).

    I can hold out for a couple weeks, but I would love your take if this is a talent you hold out for as long as necessary. Thoughts?

    I own Severino, Bumgarner (DL stash), Godley, Corbin, Morton, Bundy, Snell, and Williams. Closers are Kenley, Kimbrel, and Osuna.

    Which of these pitchers do you see as having kind of a flukey start? I spent next to nothing to get these guys and would like to upgrade my offense.

    And here are available bats I’m looking into in return:

      @nick the smooth dick: Nice write up on him on SI evaluating first three starts. Biggest thing seems to be consistent repeatable delivery stemming from coming set at his chest rather than at belt. Leads to more consistent results from his curveball which has been his best pitch. I’m still not 100% sold based on competition thus far, but I’m starting to believe. Grabbed him a few spots.

Olsen adds being considered: Senzel, Moran, Frazier, T.Anderson, Cordero, Teoscar H., Hicks, Jose Martinez, J.Lamb – any drops/adds that would help my team out?

    Hey Saturgray,

    Longo is riding my bench in my weekly league (sort of accidentally ended up with him in the draft).

    Since I’m not really using him, would you trade Longo to DL stash any of Britton, Salazar, or E Suarez? Thanks!

    • Grey

      (link)

      Sure, Eugenio

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        @Grey: thanks. He now changed the trade offer to:

        I give Longo, Greene, Hendricks
        I get Kinsler + either Salazar or Eugenio (my current 2B/MI is Chris Taylor Villar with Panik in reserve, weekly lineups)

        What do you think?

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Sounds fine to just give yourself extra spaces on your roster, I’d take Eugenio

          • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
            (link)

            @Grey: yeah, I’d replace the spot with yonny Chrinos/tropeano types and then be down to only 2 closers, Trienen and Boxberger (until the next closer gets booted).

    OF: Y Puig
    OF: INciarte
    OF: G Stanton

    B: O Herrera
    B: J Bradley

    I have Josh Bell, M Carpenter, N Cruz, C Santana, Y Gallo to rotate between my U, 1B and 3B

    P.Severino over Alex Avila in 5×5 roto OBP league? I have Avila for $1 but he’s started 5 games at catcher so far and has played terribly. Though it is very early. Other catchers available are:

    Also, with Devenski getting the save yesterday, do you still like Peacock more than him or should I add Devenski instead?

    Good morning, Grey! Would you start Jon Gray today @ Washington? The Streamonator is not enthused–nor am I after his recent shellacking by the lowly Padres. Though that was at home. I suppose I should always start him outside of Coors, but he’s the scariest pitcher I own. So damn unpredictable. Thanks a lot!

    • Grey

      I am starting him

      • GrassyKnollRedding says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Ugh. Haha. That could have gone better. I picked JGray up on the wire because it seemed crazy someone dropped him. Now I think his other owner was just Gaslighting me. JG’s the last pitcher in my starting rotation: Strasburg, Carrasco, Berrios, Weaver & Godley. With that much pitching, safe to drop Gray back on the wire for better streaming or hot-bat purposes, correct? Thanks a lot!

        PS: Thanks for the heads up on Franchy!

    i remember trying bubble tea back like in 1999 or so but i’m midwest. is that a west coast thing to call it “boba” rather than bubble tea or is it a strange midwest thing to call it bubble tea? here in STL i know for a fact (i read a thesis (parts) of how here in STL we’re like the ONLY part of the midwest that doesn’t call soda “pop”) we in at least one other instance don’t use terms that are very normal in other areas. the soda vs pop thing is very interesting as i can’t find out WHY this is true, but it is. i mean we KNOW what somebody is talking about if they say “pop” but we’d be just as sure whoever said that isn’t from STL.

    meanwhile,
    1. wacha dropped in 20 team h2h redraft with QS. who’s my drop?:

    Sent Eduardo Nunez to get “I can’t lose” James Paxton
    Sent Conforto, Matt Chapman and Charlie Morton to get “Did the season start yet?” Ozuna and Luck Weaver
    Dumped Jewish Villanueva to add Ozzie Albies, added Fat Albers, dropped Mikolas to add Bour, and scored J. Baez for Wacha from the waiver wire.

    Still holding Jo Montgomery over Wacha or Pivetta? I loved Pivetta last year, til he exhausted himself! Honestly, IDC about any of these clowns, but if the Fantasy Master Lothario says we’re still on Wacha then I will heed the advice. What’s the right call?

    Man, what a day for Pham & Albies owners. I liked Pham leading off & JoMart hitting 3rd. Would love to see that continue.

    Is Albies really gonna go 30/20? Because holy crap he looks a lot like a guy who’s gonna go 30/20 and scote 120+ runs with 90+ RBI

    Also I took thei Kinsler plunge over ChezHer & it’s paid of nicely – Kinsler better power & it looks like the Angels are gonna rum him a heck of a lot more than the Tigers did.

    H2H league so I am all about building the best team for the playoffs in Sept. Of course so many things change during the marathon season, but I have found great waiver pickups early season before….so here goes:

    C- Beef
    CI- Freeman, Seager, Santana
    MI- Dee, Bregman, Ozzie
    OF – must play 5. Rosario, JMart, Peralta, Kiermaier, Mazara, Mancini
    DH- Cruz
    SP- Max, Hendricks, Bauer, Morton, Manaea
    DL- MadBum
    RP- ugly…Brach, Strickland, Melancon, Treinen, Devenski (saves and holds)

    1. Beef or Cervelli
    2. Not sure I need another CI but Zimmerman and Suarez just dropped…hold or pickup and who is the drop? Trade potential down the road?
    3. Ziegler and Britton available at RP…both scary but Melancon’s status is equally challenging.
    4. Castillo, Shark, Salazar, Lopez, Pivetta on wire.
    Thanks Sir!

    3.

    League is a 12 team daily league 6×6 OPS and Holds are the extra categories. We use QS not W. I’m thinking I’d like to pick up Peacock to get another reliever for holds who has SP eligibility. However to do this I would need to cut 2 players(I’d have to activity E Rod or he can be 1 of my cuts). Another note is that closers are hard to find on waivers.

    Would you cut 2 players to get Peacock? If so who? Or would you hold and keep my roster as is.

    • flowers misses his old glasses... he'll be ok tho says:

      @Brett: you are benching a RP every day (have more than you can fit into lineup) but have no catcher. drop rodney for a catcher. or if you’d want saves more than holds drop somebody else but you’re coughing up counting stats daily for no gain to yourself at all right now.

      • Brett says:
        (link)

        @flowers misses his old glasses… he’ll be ok tho: Yes I don’t have a catcher. There’s not good one out there: Cervelli, Martin is it. I actually picked up Pirela to play whenever anyone is off or rested as I have major roster flexibility and he is way better than having any catcher.

        Yes I have 1 to many relievers but I feel I can eventually trade a closer as there is none on waivers.

    i’m seeing on april 2nd that your RCL’s DO in fact allow players to be grabbed for THAT day even after the first game time (so NOT like espn). vinwins and others i believe quoted that your RCL’s were in fact EXACTLY like espn in that sense though (and it’s why i’m not in any, well that and the moves limits in a roto league). i never understood why anybody would intentionally have that setting, so it sounds like you don’t, and can in fact add players all day as long as it’s before THEIR gametime (as it clearly should be)

    also i have cueto coming back, and want to stream mengden tomorrow (SON loves it, plus his FIP is awesome thus far), HAD thought to drop V2 here, rather than wheeler, but then checked and saw that him and pivetta BOTH have FIPs under 1.65 thus far, making them both top 5 in MLB starters thus far. i guess wheeler is the drop here (we have 12 max starts per week in this league)
    i own: otani, ryu, wheeler, pivetta, V2, skaggs, wood, darvish (cueto DL). i guess skaggs could be a drop here too but
    skaggs (2.25 FIP, SON’s next 2, $7, -5.9)
    wheeler (3.35 FIP, SON’s next 2, 10.7, -3.1)
    V2 (-3.3, 5.2)

        @Grey: so RCL’s do or don’t have it where you can add players before THEIR own gametime every day for that day. it was spelled out that this wasn’t the case and was like espn in that way back in preseason.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          You can add before their own games

            (link)

            @Grey: good, vin was in error (or whoever wrote the “rcl preview” pages) on this. i thought he said it was like espn, where once FIRST game locks you can’t add anybody for that day.

    • VinWins

      VinWins says:
      (link)

      @Stupid Sexy Glanders: Pretty sure I never said that.

      Some people can’t be making changes to their lineups all day, so locking at the first game is fairer for them.

      • Stupid Sexy Glanders says:
        (link)

        @VinWins: it might have been somebody else, there were numerous rcl preview posts. finally i do hear one possible defense of it though. same way how for weekly leagues are good for those who are coal miners and can only get to surface where the internet works once a week (or other spelunkers/lumberjacks and assorted other trades in non-internety areas). am glad to hear the RCL’s are no longer like that (but now do have moves limits)

        • VinWins

          VinWins says:
          (link)

          @Stupid Sexy Glanders: None of which I wrote.

          I find I seldom benefit from this new setting. I mean, there are only a few players I would be willing to drop just because they weren’t playing. So I have hope that their games have not started. But then, I have not taken to Fantrax and spend much more time on my ESPN leagues, especially once the games have started.

          But I can understand that different people can like different things.

          • Stupid Sexy Glanders says:
            (link)

            @VinWins: yeah it’s just about having the option anyway. in espn you don’t get this option at all. if you have 12 or however many people (league size) that don’t want to have the ability to pick up a player when they find out somebody gets hurt/sick or whatever later than first game starting in fantrax you can slot the option to “rosters lock at first game time of the day”. yahoo’s daily-today setting has always been this way as well (same as current RCL at fantrax). at yahoo you can do it the espn way too by doing the “daily-tomorrow” settings.

            i appear to have mixed you up with truss or somebody else on those RCL posts.

            • Stupid Sexy Glanders says:
              (link)

              @Stupid Sexy Glanders: oh wait, but yahoo’s daily-tomorrow is actually worse than espn’s, as at least in espn if you can find out somebody is out that day before the first gametime you can still find a new player for that day. yahoo daily-tomorrow that only works if you know a guy is going to be out before 3 AM eastern of that day.
