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

C’mon. What are we doing here, fellas and five girl readers? Corey Dickerson and Paul DeJong are blocking Nolan Gorman from being called up? Is this serious? Co-Dick and Colonel Mustard sounds like cojoined twins playing Clue with two candlesticks, so to speak. They’re not blocking Nolan Gorman, right? Because that’s what I was hearing, but my ears and I stopped speaking when I questioned them about this information. “Stop looking away and answer me! Is that what you’re hearing?!” That’s me interrogating my ears. My ears got real silent after that. Nolan Gorman who has 40-homer power right now? That Nolan Gorman? Is it Golan Norman still in the minors and Nolan Gorman was already called up? Is that what happened, and I didn’t hear it because of the falling out I had with my ears? Someone explain what we’re doing here. Here, not hear. I can’t do that without my ears! On Prospect Itch’s Prospect Stash List, he put some shine on Gorman.

Here’s what Itch said previously, “The fair-haired boy in this system since his noisy draft season, Nolan Gorman breathed some spice into his dynasty stock by sliding over to second base and popping 25 home runs in 125 games across two levels, slashing .279/.333/.481 by reducing his strikeout rate early and adding power later in the year as the K-rate kept dropping all the way down to 19.2 percent after a 31.7% rate back in 2019 at High-A. I’d also like to cut Grey.” What the heck, dude? This year Gorman has 10 HRs as he hits near-.350 in Triple-A in 66 at-bats. Again, I am asking you what are we doing here. He should’ve been called up already. Don’t let the double candlesticks on the Clue board prospblock him. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Zack Collins – Looking at Taylor Ward, Tyler Wade and Zack Collins on the same fantasy team and renaming it “Collins All Angels,” then seeing that team is owned by the lead singer of Train and showering for fifteen hours.

Christian Walker – “Thank God I don’t have that 5-stage clinger, Hunter Dozier, right next to me in a post again!” That’s Christian Walker not being the friend to Hunter Dozier that we all thought he was.

Rowdy Tellez – See the next blurb, or 1/18th of an inch below.

Daniel Vogelbach – A new Christian Walker/Hunter Dozier separated-at-birth, attached-at-the-hip has dropped. It’s Daniel Vogelbach and Rowdy Tellez. Every post Tellez and Vogelbach appear in, they must appear together. It’s by decree of the Thunder Thighs Commission. TTC is governed remotely, but yearly meetings are in Temecula’s Islands Fine Burgers & Drinks. Vogelbach and Rowdy bonded last year when Daniel questioned, “What’s with this pineapple on my burger?” and Rowdy was like, “You don’t like pineapple on burgers?” And Vogelbach said, “No, I don’t one piece of pineapple on my burger. I want multiple pieces.” And they were fast friends ever since.

Eric Hosmer – *Standing on a cliff, hands on each hip, winding blowing through his hair* “Hos time is now.” *lifts one hand, bends over* “I’m a little teapot.”

Wilmer FloresGiants could honestly take all the garbage guys the Rockies develop and turn them into great hitters by moving them into a much worse park and just platooning them. This makes no sense, yet I know it to be 100% true.

Nico Hoerner – Confession alert! I like Nico Hoerner more than I usually let on, because I know he’s not a great fantasy asset. He’s a .310 hitter with some light speed and much lighter power. Call him Little Jack Hoerner.

Joey Wendle – Somehow, Wendle went from a guy I didn’t like to a guy who I’m wondering why he’s not hitting higher in the order. You don’t need a mustache to think smart enough to know Wendle’s a better two-hole hitter than Jesus Aguilar or Jorge Soler. Right? Maybe you do.

Sheldon Neuse – Bring the Neuse, Bring in Da Punk Who Told Me To Draft Mondesi. Wait, that punk is me. Hmm, not a good look, Fantasy Master Lothario (don’t abbreviate).

Thairo Estrada – Think he might be over 50% rostered by the time you read this, but that’s because you’re not reading fast enough!

Jorge Mateo – I told you to pick him up two weeks ago. Y’all are out there staring at your hands wondering why they’re not operating the mouse for you. You gotta move your mind muscle to get your hands to move.

Santiago EspinalJays’ lineup was so stacked in March, and now they’re like, “Our cleanup hitter is ex-Zackly who we want.” Collins has been fine, clearly, he’s in this post, and Espinal has also been good and playing, because of the aforementioned–well, afore-alluded to injuries.

Abraham Toro – This past offseason I gave you a Toro sleeper, but it was before the Mariners added Suarez, Winker and decided to start the year with Jul-Rod. Eugenio’s been okay, but otherwise Toro is outhitting Winker, Jul-Rod, well, everyone on the Mariners, except for France, who’s been otherworldly, not just othercountryly.

Jonathan Villar – I knew Villar had been hot, but hadn’t looked until just now what he had been doing. What a joke. He’s a .350 hitter now with no power or speed? Oh…*sails around the world*…kay.

Hunter Dozier – “We are together again, as it’s meant to be.” That’s Dozier looking at Christian Walker in the same post again, but not reading what he had to say. Something simmering under the surface here.

Alec Bohm – Gonna be wild when Bohm is a 30-homer, .315 hitter next year and I be bemoaning and be groaning that I was two years early and sounding like a whole-ass nerd. Already regretting it and I haven’t even not drafted him next year. Double negatives be damned!

Taylor Ward – Already gave you my Taylor Ward fantasy. I gave it to you roughly five days before he was in the top 10 on the 7-day Player Rater.

Austin Hays – This was my after-250 overall outfielder I was drafting everywhere, and now here’s to him breaking out. Pretty effin’ please.

Brandon Nimmo – I nearly made him the lede this week, but I don’t really “buy” that he’s rostered in less than 50% of leagues. Nimmo is prolly a top 30 outfielder this year. I should’ve ranked him higher. It was a mistake by me, but I’m buying Nimmo, even in trades. He looks like he’s taken a step forward with his bat. Nimmo finally found himself.

Josh Naylor – Some of you might remember I was a big fan of Naylor last year, and, boy, did that work out great. Oops, forgot the sarcasm font. Naylor has good average, okay power, no speed. Call him Non Baylor. RIP Don.

Max Kepler – Stassi and Kepler should have a German-off. Just battling each other for who’s more German. “I eat bockwurst!” “Oh, yeah, well, my mother arm wrestles!”

Odubel Herrera – ODB is a hot schmotato. Something you won’t hear on that Wu Tang TV show.

Raimel Tapia – Lot of guys here that I like a lot more than most people. Tapia has playing time concerns once Teoscar returns, but cross that bridge when science cures all recurring oblique injuries. Sorry, did I just jinx Teoscar? I really hope he’s okay, tee be aitch, but obliques.

Miles Mikolas – At this point, you kinda have to roster Mikolas in all leagues, but this is a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to its local radio station.

Dane Dunning – This isn’t a great streamer, in grand scheme of things, but there weren’t many to suggest from the Streamonator. “Could you stop playing That’s What Friends Are For? It’s making me rust my face from tears.”

Jorge Lopez – Baltimore’s got a new David Simon show on HBO, and it’s good. But, and maybe more importantly, since David Simon’s The Wire, has anyone ever said anything nice about the city of Baltimore? Not about the Orioles, at least. Oh, and their closer is Jorge Lopez.

Dany Jimenez – In this week’s closer report by JKJ, he makes the case for Jimenez to be the closer even when Trivino returns. Imagine getting Wally Pipp’d by Covid. Brutal, and I don’t think it happens. Not until July 31st at least when the A’s trade Trivino, but Jimenez looks like a worthy grab either way.

Tanner Rainey – April showers, bring May flowers; Davey Martinez raves, bring Tanner Rainey saves.

Andres Munoz – This guy could be a top five closer in the majors if he were given the opportunity (and didn’t fail). Okay, kidding on the “didn’t fail” part. That’s anyone, but, seriously, Munoz has pitch-black closer stuff. Hmm, I shouldn’t have used a thesaurus for “lights-out.”

Keegan Thompson – Trying to bring you a random middle reliever each week in the Buy. From Jhoan Duran to Wil Crowe to Spencer Strider to Keegan Thompson: One Man’s Journey Through Bullpens Without Getting One Gee-Dee Save.

SELL

Marcus Semien – Should’ve been more emphatic in the preseason about how much I didn’t want Semien. Been trying to get everyone out on Semien, like a hotel cleaning their towels, but never point-blank, “You do not want to draft Semien at anywhere near his draft cost,” which is my bad. I’m in Latin America saying mea culpa. Arlington pretty much sucks, and Semien’s Launch Angle is dotting the eyes in “you ain’t got no alibi, that ain’t aioli, Semien, that’s just uglii.” He’s hitting everything in the air with an over-pronounced Launch Angle, and Y-U-C-K. He could hit .220 this year with 25 homers, and it wouldn’t shock me. Thankfully, you don’t have him for the next seven years like the Rangers. I wouldn’t sell him to see The Batman at half-speed so it lasts six hours, but I would go to our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.

In fifth place in 12 teamer, h2h league. Ten hitting cats…singles, doubles etc including walks and strikeouts. Holds and saves are separate cats. My team and questions below. Thank you sir!
C- Stephenson
CI- Freeman, Donaldson, Schwindel or Eugenio
MI- Polanco, Lindor, France
OF- (5) Acuna, Robert, Lourdes, JulRod, Joe
Util- Vaughn
SP- Montas, Cease, Kershaw, McClan, Luzardo, L Garcia
RP- Hader, E Diaz, Sims, Rainey

1. Rainey and Sims get few save chances so just acquired Diaz. Thinking of cutting one of them for a holds guy. Agree? If so who goes? Also, I tested the trade market…zero interest in either one.
2. Best holds on WW: Tepera, Diekman, Matzek, Lasagna, C Green, Yimi, Neris, Genesis.
3. Javier and Merrill available but not sure who to select and who to drop? Do I actually drop both Sims and Rainey?
Appreciate your work and patience!

Thanks Grey!

I followed your pitching advice yesterday. The advice was perfect. I pitched Mikolas and Irvin. Both gave significant points. I have never been this high in a fantasy league. I feel like the 69 Mets. I am not sure just how many of your many fans can remember the 69 Mets.Thank you!!

1, I picked up the Padres Clevinger and will start him at Cleveland and at home against the Cubs. Do you agree?

2. Irvin’s next start for Oakland is at Minn. I was leaning to starting him. Would you start him?

3. Your advice on the Cards Mikolas has been amazing. I was leaning to starting him at Sf. Do you agree?

4. Chris Flexan of Seattle is always a puzzle for me. He pitch’s first at Houston. I was leaning to sitting him. Do you agree?

5. Flexan’s will end the week by starting at home against TB. What would you do?

Thanks again for all your help!

12-team H2H. Pick two. My team has Robertson and Whitlock; and Bender on FA list. Note.

1) I actually thought Whitlock was in a perfect position (possible closer. At worst, Middle relief on a hitting team with 4-inning starters — sure to get chance for a win each week). But now, as a 4-inning pitcher himself, not as much value.

2) Robertson has been effective, but does a Cubs closer have much value?

3) But then again, does a Marline closer have much value? Especially since risk that Floro could seize the job if Bender fails once?

Actually my current opinion is “who cares?” since a good closer will suddenly emerge in a few weeks.

might not be the best for this year but hard to say no cause of the value…
get 8$ woodruff & 4$ india, give up 47$ harper and 1$ knebel
harper is up there with soto as highest value in the league by a lot with the BB, so im really torn on letting him go…. league also has an active roster salary cap, so getting low cost players is key

Jorge Polanco and Profar are available in waivers, and I need an infielder. League allows an associated $ FA bid to improve claim position.

I’m assuming Polanco is sufficiently preferable /desirable that I would bid $1 or $2 (hopefully Profar remains unclaimed) and so I get one of them). Agree that Polanco is preferable (but not outlandishly so)?

Minor roster question….5×5 OBP 14-team league…OFs are at a premium. Mine are decent (Stanton, Arozarena, Pham, Renfroe, and Happ) but am looking at a 6th OF for the bench.

Senzel or Margot?

Hey Grey,

How long should I wear my ear plugs. It is so Neuse in here. I bought JuRod and JaKel, but picked up OMil and SNeuse on FA. My hope is that Julio and Jarred start to hit before Owen and Sheldon flame out. (Or do you think Miller and Neuse have long term value?)

demeritte (good god i head that guy in a 30 teamer for years, gone now) appears to be starting LF at least till rosario’s back. also has 2B/SS.

NL only OBP over AVG, net steals over steals, total bases added.
C ruiz
1B votto (hope this isn’t the year his bottom completely falls out, still early)
2B wong
3B riley (1B)
SS b.rodgers (2B, hopefully gets IR’d soon or plays)
MI madrigal (odd that they had him at top of order not hoerner now he’s being benched often)
OF (4): harper, suzuki, o’neill, naquin
util (1): wisdom (1B/3B/OF)
o’cruz (stashed)

how long till (might get lucky and rodgers gets IR’d) we’re dropping either madrigal or rodgers here, as pretty sure a few more (maybe one) good games from demeritte he’s not in FA. 10 team h2h. trejo also out there in case rodgers gets IR’d later.

hehe, i’ve only seen parts of it (obtained it lately) about to be busy with ozark’s last half season, but yeah the batman quite long (but at least it resembles the darker noir of some of the better comics). last week i passed out on couch, woke up to both the batman on (multiple times, was able to fall asleep again, that tells you how long it is) and the o’reilly as buss start of the magic/lakers dynasty show that i hadn’t seen yet (new ep tonight on that too).

20 teamer roto with holds and saves sold separately, with sims up gotta drop one of these:
diekman (worst FIP by far out of these, but also possibly highest holds upside with some saves in there)
sims (saves dearth here so probably not him, wish he still had SP like last year wouldn’t have to drop anybody)
bender (similar)
robert suarez (he hasn’t been exclusively 8th inning lately and one of the l.garcia’s is back now)
seranthony dom (this right here is what it looks like when parents don’t know if they are having a boy or girl, just pick one name for each and you’re set, like marymark or bobbyjennifer then the parents don’t have to fight later. he’s actually the best pitcher so far out of these (2.15 FIP) supposedly lower down in depth charts, BUT he’s the one out there in leverage spots and is nabbing holds often and everybody forgot about him since he was out injured so long)
johnny lasagna (hasn’t started season off well, but from last year we saw he can be a top 10 overall RP type in saves/holds leagues)

Another question. No AVG league, BB + XBH instead. R, RBI, SB and HR

Which side do you prefer?

Mookie or Ward + C. Seager.

Would you drop any of Robles or Graveman for Munoz? Saves + Holds league.
My only other options at this point are: Jordan Montgomery, Profar, Franmil, Ward, or Keibert (I’d play without C).

Full team is: Keibert, Freeman, Cronenworth, M Chapman, Bichette, Ward, L. Robert, Bellingher, C. Seager, T. O’Neil, Profar, Luis Urias, Franmil, Eloy IL

JoMo, Gausman, Musgrove, Nestor Cortes, Taylor Rogers, Robles, Graveman, E. Diaz, Clevinger IL

Jorge Lopez is also available, but it seems Munoz is the better pick?

if saves + holds so they’re both worth the same i’d drop hansel and gretel for munoz. large sample (years) of him sucking (and he’s getting very lucky so far this year on ERA so far). unless you’re running a bunch of bench bats (assuming not as you mentioned the ruiz drop would make you catcherless)

I’m in a SV+H league also and it seems that actual closers still have a bit more value than middle relievers, since the closer has a true, set role. I am a huge fan of Jorge Lopez but the Orioles suck. Munoz is also awesome, but he’s part of a very strong bullpen. So I guess the question is, which downside are you more comfortable with – a bad team where save chances may not come all that often, or a stacked bullpen where usage may not be all that high because of other options?

even if somebody thinks betts is best overall player here adolis is quite the 4th esp from OBP and grey doesn’t even think betts is the best player out of these 4.

My team continues to not hit for average or power. Fun times. Carrying one more bat than usual due to platoons and Acuna’s schedule. Pitching hanging in there but not sure I can count on it. H2h league so patience is usually rewarded. Have one more move this week…suggestions?

C Stephenson
CI. Freeman, Hosmer, Eugenio (I know you hate him but he has been decent since I grabbed him)
MI Polanco, Lindor, France
OF (5) Acuna, Robert, JulRod, Gurriel, Happ
Util. Joe, Vaughn, or Donaldson
SP Montas, Cease, Kershaw, L Garcia, McClan
RP Hader, Sims, Rainey, Tepera (holds are a separate cat)

WW: Wong, Fletcher, Duvall, Rowdy

Grey, I have to give you props for your initial call on Brash. Those walks are finally catching up to him. I listened to you too and stayed away. Fastball getting hammered. Hitters laying off the junk out of the zone. Now if the pitchers i actually own can just pitch better and stop walking so many hitters I’d be back in business.

I think that’d be kosher. Narrative is different on different sites, esp after his last start

I realize you have Springer injury concerns, and I share that to some extent. I made another team an offer of Wheeler for Springer earlier. He declined it initially but has since warmed to it. Does that sound better to you? He mentioned maybe something where I’d include an OF and he an SP.

I don’t have to have an OF. I could see what kind of SS or 2B Wheeler I might be able to pull for Wheeler instead. (I did recently lose Mondesi.)

The same owner has Semien (3.7), but he also drafted him higher than Springer (5.7). Semien has lowly numbers so far, of course. So. . . I could consider offering something like Wheeler and Jesus Sanchez for Semien and a throwaway. Fair? Too little or much from me?

My roster:

C            Keibert Ruiz
1B          Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
2B          Jorge Mateo
3B          Rafael Devers
SS          Jorge Polanco
CI           Ke’Bryan Hayes
MI         Jeremy Pena
LF           Taylor Ward
CF          Brandon Nimmo
RF          Franmil Reyes
OF         Jesus Sanchez
OF         Andrew Vaughn
UT         Trey Mancini

Bench Jarred Kelenic, Joey Wendle, Michael Brantley

IL         Teoscar Hernandez, Eloy Jimenez

P            Joe Musgrove

P            Josh Staumont

6×6 roto with QS and Holds. Holds and Saves are separate so we roster a lot of RP (12 active P slots).

Actually, if I were to target Semien instead, he might be looking for a MI back rather than an OF.
