*balloons fall from the ceiling, sirens go off*  Oh my God, what did I win?  Little ol’ me was the winner of the “Only Person To Put Dustin Garneau In A Headline?!”  *more sirens, more balloons*  I’m also the winner of the first person ever to mention Dustin Garneau in a lede?!  *yet more balloons, yet more sirens*  Okay, what is it now?  I’m the first person to mention Dustin Garneau three times in one lede?  Great, can we kill the sirens?  My neighbors are gonna get annoyed.  What do I win anyway?  Dustin Garneau on my fantasy team?  That’s the worst prize ever!  So, I took on the monsters of the industry in an NL Only league that was hosted by Scott White at CBS and I came away with a team that is more imbalanced than Amanda Bynes.  This league is deep so hold onto ye old hat.  (If you want a shallower league, play against me and hundreds of your closest buddies in the Razzball Commenter Leagues.)  Anyway, here’s my 12-team NL-Only team and some thoughts:

IT’S APPROPRIATE THAT YOU DRAFTED A CRISTHIAN BECAUSE HIS NAME SOUNDS LIKE CHRYSANTHEMUM AND THAT’S THE FLOWERS I’LL BE PUTTING ON THE GRAVE OF THIS FANTASY TEAM

I hear ya, this team is wonky as all get-out.  I can pinpoint the moment when everything went wrong.  Imagine Scherzer was dogsitting for me and I had to drive him home afterwards, and, as soon as he stepped out of my car, I saw a gummy bear on his butt, reached up and plucked it off.  Only TMZ caught it on video and edited it to make it look like I was saying, “Sweet, sweet can,” when I was really saying, “Sweet, sweet candy.”  In hindsight (literally), it appears I intentionally grabbed Scherzer, but I didn’t.  The way the pitching staff is listed is how I drafted them.  I grabbed deGrom for what I thought was a fair price and was like, “Okay, now I’ll grab a few starters in the $10-20 range and be done.”  Then one (!) player later, Scherzer is nominated and I had him listed for $35.  So, I figured I’d go to $32 and let someone else take him.  DOH!  That changed everything, and, since it came about ten picks into the entire draft, it changed every everything.  Ideally, you want to spend around $80 on pitching, I spent $89, but in a completely imbalanced way.  Can I win with this pitching?  Yes, but I can’t have anything happen to deGrom or Scherzer or I’m done.

CAN I ASK YOU A FO’REALLY QUESTION?  OKAY, FO’REALLY, WHAT’S WITH YOUR OFFENSE?

I just went by our NL Only 12-team rankings.  Do I like all of these schmohawks?  I haven’t liked Utley in six seasons, okay?  I haven’t liked Holliday since he was on the Rockies, a’ight?  I’m not saying I’d draft this team in a 12-team mixed league.  Luckily, it’s not.  I nearly hit all of my projections needed to a T.  According to my projections, I’m a little light on power and average.  I’m surprisingly right on for runs, RBIs and a little high on speed.  Is it fun to rely on the 2007 All-Star Team of Utley and Holliday?  Nope.  But it’s the nature of the league.  Some other teams have an outfield that includes Dietrich, Duvall and Lagares.  I like those guys, but they’re not starters.  Another team has starters that include Middlebrooks, Marlon Byrd, Ethier, De Aza, Kike Hernandez and Freddy Galvis.  Another team’s starting outfield includes Jesse Winker, Markakis and Michael Taylor.  Again, I like some of those guys, but as my starting outfield?  My team isn’t Hotline Swing, but it’s also not as bad as you might think it is looking through mixed team-colored glasses.  Finally, I obviously don’t want Jhonny Peralta anymore — or dhonny’t wanlta, if you will — but I drafted this team two weeks ago, so thank God Jose Reyes is an abusive husband and Adames might see ABs.

OKAY, YOU OBVIOUSLY CAN JUSTIFY ANYTHING, SO LET’S HEAR IT ABOUT THAT BULLPEN!

Yeah, I don’t have one.  Saves are easily my weakest category.  It’s not really close.  For a league like this, you want one solid closer.  They don’t go cheap either.  Here’s some prices:  Papelbon $17, Familia $21, McGee $15, Melancon $21, Rondon $19, Grilli $11, etc.  I had already spent too much on Scherzer and deGrom and, brucely, I was reeling, so I gambled on a cheap-ish saves gamble…. Carter Capps.  Or as he’s better known, Carter TOMMY JOHN SURGERY.  Yeah, that gamble worked out perfect.  Almost as much as my last $30 investment in Powerball.  I’m a winner, I can feel it!  So, now the Last of the Mujicas may be my best bet for saves, because David Hernandez has triceps soreness.  That’s totally gonna work out for me!   *dons Trump for President t-shirt, walks into Mexico*

LEAVE ME WITH SOMETHING POSITIVE, OTHERWISE MY WHOLE DAY WILL BE BUMMED OUT.  THIS IS AFTER ALL ABOUT ME.

Polanco…Belt…Conforto…Finnegan…Rymer…Foltysomethingwitz, I have upside, guys and five girl readers!  By the by, one of our girl readers is commissioning a Razzball commenter league.  Meet your future wife on Razzball and invite me to the wedding (if there’s going to be good food)!  This league will come down to who can avoid major injuries, because at the top of the waivers right now is a backup Padres catcher and some guy named Yhonathan Barrios.  Seriously, I’d vote for Trump if he outlawed all uncommon spellings of John.

    I took over as manager of cellar dweller in a 20 team keep 7 league that initially didn’t have 7 worthy keepers. I traded my Kipnis for DeShields and I traded my 5th pick and acquired both Pineda and Schoop and the 15th draft pick. I’m trying to find a way to swing a two for one upgrade, but my team isn’t great and the deadline is in 2 days. Who should I cut of these?

    Schoop
    Delino DeShields
    Garrett Richards

    Grey!

    Nice lede. I thought it’d be related to yesterday’s Giants-Reds game, a la……Giants cream the Reds by a TD and safety. Anyway….

    a. Good team though after being in mixed league and super shallow modes a lot of what you do in an NL-only league gets lost. I can imagine that PRIMO real estate in a NL-only league costs MORE than it would in a mixed league for example 20$ for Belt seems steep but in reality it isn’t because the good resources are so scarce.

    b. Oops, I invoked the scarcity paradigm. I hope Rudy’s not reading. Is there a scarcity paradigm in NL-only leagues? Like position scarcity in mixed leagues? I’m so confused.

    c. But, but, but….You didn’t comment Schebler’s 2nd HR of the ST!!!!! The bus driver to Louisville still has his seat saved for him.

    Cheers,

    Grey,
    Keeper/trade question.
    Which side of the followinng trade:
    G Polanco (1yr, $5) and Tomas (2yr, $4) or Richards (1yr $5) and Giles (2yrs $3)

    I’d be getting Polanco side. Already have decent hitters. Good RP will be in draft. Wondering if Giles will really close out of the gate.

    Thanks for your advice.

    I would have been making that Capps pick in every league had I been drafting before the news came out. All the more reason For SAGNOF!

    After the M Franco + R. Iglesias (church!) trade, I’m now trying to pick my last keeper. Keep 7, and my first 6 keepers are Abreu ($25), Betts ($25), Blackmon ($20), Franco ($8), Strasburg ($16), and Iglesias ($4).

    Who do you like as my last keeper from the below?

    McCullers ($7)
    Corbin ($8) (ranked slightly above Cullers, but WAY less upside in a keeper league)
    Buxton ($4)

    Keep Cullers now that he seems in line for about 170 IP + try my luck getting Bux at auction?

    • Malicious Phenoms says:
      (link)

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Hey Duda, I’d go Bux, especially if you can keep him for more than 1 year..

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

        @Malicious Phenoms: Hey Phenom – interesting + thanks! Was leaning towards Cullers (but struggling between him and Bux). Yes, I can keep Bux indefinitely, subject to a +$3 / yr salary inflation (this year he’s $4). My only hesitation is that I wonder if people would really bid much more than $4 for him in the draft this year (different story in 2017), since he still hasn’t shown much of anything in the MLB yet.

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

          @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: I should also mention that Delino DeShields will be available to draft at auction. I figure if I miss out on Bux, I can go with Grey’s #1 sleeper and hopefully get similar (or better) production from D-squared, who still seems very under the radar.

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: I’d err on the side of offense. $4 is nothing to keep a guy that’s supposed to be a blue chipper.

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

        @Grey: Oops! Literally as I went to my team page to accept the McCullers trade offer I got yesterday, that owners flipped McCullers to someone else (in his defense, he get Kluber in return for only Cullers and Hamels – steal!).
        Anyway, that means I’m still stuck with a $14 Hosmer instead of Cullers.

        Between $14 Hos and $4 Bux, who wins out for you? (Hos would be my CI).

    Trying to figure out which 3 players to keep. 10 team 6×6 roto league (OBP,SLG,R,RBI,HR,SB) and (QS, IP, ERA, WHIP, K, SV)….it’s a 5 OF league w/ CI and MI

    I don’t like the idea of keeping 2 pitchers (prefer keeping 3 bats), but I don’t know how I could pass up on Thor and Arrieta. I’ve heard from some I should keep Xander, but it’s OBP/SLG so his value goes down and Joc’s goes up. The other factor is not only do I get to keep them at last year’s spot for this season, but also next season, and possibly the season after, so a 13th round Joc in an OBP/SLG league would be elite. Options are below. What do you recommend?

    Todd Frazier (8th round in 2016, 2017 – TBD for 2018)
    Jake Arrieta (11th round in 2016, 2017 – TBD for 2018)
    Joc Pederson (13th round in 2016, 2017 – TBD for 2018)
    Xander Bogaerts (16th round in 2016, 2017 – TBD for 2018)
    Noah Syndergaard (25th round in 2016, 2017 – TBD for 2018)

    Thanks!

    Mr. Grey,
    Long time follower, who love you long time. No sucky sucky. Who would you keep out of the below 3 guys in a 5x 5 dynasty league (k/9 instead of SO’s and QS instead of W’s). This would be my 8th and final keeper. Auction draft with 260 million budget. Already keeping Correa $4, Goldy $7, Harper $21, Sano $4, Chris Davis $20, Todd Frazier $7, Dozier $9
    The 8th is between:
    Kimbrel $16
    Matz $4
    I was leaning towards Kimbrel, since this is a 12 person league where people tend to keep closers; however, Matz would be a good value at $4 and the salaries only increase by the lesser of 20%/$5 per year. Your advice would be appreciated, thanks homie.

    Grey great job with all the draft prep info once again!

    Got a keeper question for ya. I’m in a 14 team SBFL league that is super competitive. We can keep 8 players from last years roster. The breakdown is 2 3-year keepers, 2 2-year keepers, and 4 1-year keepers. I also traded for an additional 1-year keeper spot, so I get 5 1-year keepers this year. I was wondering who you think deserves to be kept longer than the others based on the salary I can keep them for. Below are my options:

    Name – Last Year Salary ((3-year keeper price break down: Year 1 (This year), Year 2, Year 3))
    Greinke – $24 ($24, $24, $24)
    Gordon – $20 ($20, $20, $20)
    Frazier – $18 ($18, $18, $20)
    JD Martinez – $17 ($17, $17, $20)
    Bogaerts – $15 ($15, $15, $20
    Lindor – $1 ($10, $15, $20)
    Pujols – $18 ($18, $18, $20)
    Belt – $10 ($10, $15, $20)
    Stroman – $1 ($10, $15, $20)
    Shelby Miller – $6 ($10, $15, $20)

    Thanks for all you do Grey!

    @Grey- Entering my 7th season following you and want to thank you for all of the great work that you do on a consistent, day-in/day-out basis. My 10 year keeper league is resetting this season and have a question about my 1st round pick.

    The league is 12-team roto, 6×6 (w/BBs and Holds), keep 8 players, keep forever.

    I have the 7th pick. Assuming Trout/Harper/Correa/Machado are gone, approaching this from a keeper standpoint, how do you rank AND tier Goldy, Rizzo, Stanton, Bryant?

    I could just extrapolate your annual rankings, taking into account age/BBs as a 6th category, but I don’t know how much you weight age and who you expect to produce for a longer period of time at a consistently peak/high level.

    As always, in advance, thank you my friend.

    Hey Grey,
    Appreciate all the work and advice. I have two keepers left to choose, and I’m really torn. 8 teams league. Here are the options and would LOVE some advice.
    Cain in the 19th
    Bogaerts in the 18th
    Buxton in the 19th
    Giolito in the 19th
    Blackmon in the 12th
    Severino in the 19th
    Odor in the 19th
    FYI – Leaning Bog and Odor for IF and youth. Hurting to give up Cain, and Buxton Potential.

    Got a Keeper Question for you Grey. Each keeper is rounds 1,2,3 of the draft. Can keep them as long as I want. Who are your top 3 guys?

    Abreu
    Machado
    Seager
    McCutcheon
    Bautista
    Polanco
    Arrieta
    deGrom

    I’m thinking Abreu, Machado, and McCutcheon.

    Strategy/valuation question… I’m looking at your draft and the NL LABR draft to get a sense of what players should go for in my auction this year.

    However, I’m in a 10 team NL league. How would you expect the prices to change ina slightly smaller league? I’ve looked at the Razzball 10 team NL values, but I’m having a hard time figuring out how to use these 12 team drafts as a rough guide even though it feels like they should help.

    Thoughts from anyone on how to adjust what I’m seeing in this drafts would be great! Would top guys lose value because replacements are slightly better and there is less $ to go around? Would average auction values go up because we’re battling over a better set of players? I’m lost…

      • CoreyII says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        I have looked at those and plan to use them. My hope was to get an estimate of what market value for each guy was using the two expert drafts, and find some good targets that way, but the 12 vs 10 has me confused.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          You shouldn’t look at expert values for a 12 team league if you’re a 10 team… Our auction values are what people are paying

  30. Reuben says:

    Do you still have a record of what other guys went for in that auction?

    Justin Upton left Wednesday’s Grapefruit League game against the Nationals for precautionary reasons.
    Anthony Gose stepped on Upton’s left ankle on a near collision in left center field. Upton is likely headed for X-rays. This is the last thing the Tigers needed after losing Cameron Maybin to a broken wrist last week. Tyler Collins would slot in as the everyday left fielder if Upton faces a lengthy absence.

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: this better not really really F me in about 6 leagues. i’ve traded for upton that many times (2 in last month) in last 2 years or so. funniest part about this is gose not 3 days ago is quoted saying some b.phillips level-of-stupid shit about defensive metrics being “made up” “not real” crap for some dude to make money. he was asked about those i suppose since he’s rated awful in all of them. apparently the metrics didn’t show exactly how bad he really is, he’ll be worth quite a bit more losses per year this year than he already was going to from his normal D if he decommissions upton by stepping on his ankle.

    Man this Scout draft is pitching heavy. Everyone’s got two SP through 5 rounds. One guy even has 3. I know NFBC it was smart to draft at least a couple of good pitchers, but I figured that was due to 15 teams. Maybe it’s due to no waivers? I don’t care, I’m not zigging.

                Zigging and zagging are flip sides of the coin. It is not sufficient to say one is either zigging or zagging. One must also clarify that all the other members of a given set are taking the opposite path.

          I just find it hard to believe they’re going to let people draft guys that have 1B listed for them, then remove that… But that did happen to Rudy in LABR with Fielder

            @Grey: fielder wasn’t listed as 1B with Rudy, Rudy just didn’t check. any site that shows a guy as 1B then post draft suddenly he’s not is worse than anything (probably) that yahoo even does. i’d not play there if that’s true. just like with some of the stuff yahoo does a decent child would never set anything up like that.

            • if you look at the LABR draft on RTSports, it’ll show Fielder color-coded as a 1B. I don’t look at the positions on the site to be honest b/c i’m nose deep in my spreadsheet. Search/queue/pick. It is true that they had him as DH but the color-coding on the draft board should’ve informed me right away (it didn’t). I figured it out when looking at my roster and seeing Fielder at UTIL.

              So it was totally ‘my bad’ but RTSports potentially compounded the error with their draft display.

    I’m so terrified of my NL only league this year. Normally I’d say OF has depth, but there is no balance in the NL OF pool beyond the top tier or two.

    I’m in decent shape going into the draft keeper wise, but I’m afraid I’m going to panic and spend all my money 15 minutes in because I’m terrified of getting shut out of the top tiers of 1B and OF.

    Also, can we stop pretending that 2 Catches in an AL/NL only leagues is fun. There is nothing fun about have 2 catchers who wouldn’t start for my coed slow pitch league.

                    @Grey: No, he was actually a good guy. Which is why she was so surprised that he took PED’s. He was just smarter than most of the guys cause they had a good idea of when they’d be tested. He would take it right after the game and flush it out of his system before he got to the stadium if by chance they were testing him.

    NL only with hits replacing AVG, ER and WHIP replaced by earned runs against and innings pitched.
    comish either forgot or F’d up the keepers, i should’ve had marte/rizzo. we’re gonna work that out tomorrow. hopefully during that process somebody gets votto at value and i get rizzo back. 27 rounds, i F’d myself in the 14th by thinking too long on phillips vs carter, then when i typed in carter last second it went carter capps before i could choose c.carter. this cost me either carter (but i got howard later anyway, about the same thing) or one of nola/j.ross instead of either rubby/eickhoff. hellickson still out there.
    C hundley (19, completely unbelieveable he sat at top of my draft board for maybe 5 rounds and was still there)
    1B votto (2nd)
    2B murphy (7th)
    SS villar (17th, could’ve gone like assdribble earlier)
    3B rendon (6th, missed franco earlier by 1 pick, somebody else grabbed when they should’ve, rather than yahoo’s stupid ass ADP, he was still quite earlier than that)
    CI adams (20th, sat at top of board for maybe 3 rounds)
    MI spangenberg (21st)
    OF marte (1st, 10th out of 10)
    OF heyward (4th)
    OF grichuck (10th)
    OF parra (8th)
    util span (13th)
    util howard (20th)
    BN o.arcia (24th, no NA slot, just BN till he takes villar’s job)
    BN jaso (starter here 26th round)
    SP (H2H, 7 moves per week)
    lester (3rd)
    shark (5th)
    w.chen (11th, knew i could wait here)
    rubby (15th, here’s where my capps F’up hurt)
    eickhoff (16th)
    vince vela (22nd)
    ray (23rd)
    RP – jeffress (9th)
    – smith (18th)
    – j.diaz (27th)
    -capps (14th, already dropped)
    1,balanced and decent?
    2. i seem weak in MI when spangenberg plays lefties. go for extra BN bat to alleviate or grab 4th RP. options
    MI – dilsson/hanson/adames/k.tomlinson
    RP – knebel/kelly/caminero/hudson/petit (for good innings). could lock up MIL with knebel of course. i had not idea i was double handcuffing MIL RP/SS, JB would be proud.

      @What’s a Drexl?: adams should read 12th round, howard was 20th.

      • What's a Drexl? says:
        (link)

        @What’s a Drexl?: also barely missed asche, in fact had i NOT f’d up the capps thing i’d have one of nola/ross over one of eickhoff/rubby probably PLUS maybe asche over jaso, mostly due to positional stuff (needing 3B backup of some type)

        • What's a Drexl? says:
          (link)

          @What’s a Drexl?: no holds here, it’s clear, no reason to even have RP unless they might close, other than really good ones. and even then you’re in better shape having more SP to win innings and wins and K’s. i’d rather really have hellickson than siegrist in this system.
