Kinda ridiculous that Odubel Herrera is the first player to get two ledes this year, but this is because they both came on short schedule days and I’m the only one that likely knows this, so let’s just move on!  ODB’s hot like Mariah’s fire.  Mariah’s fire is the dragon breath she breathes right before her morning ritual of firing a staffer.  “Who sprinkled my slippers with gold dust?  It’s Tuesday!  Tuesday’s slippers get sprinkled with powdered sugar so the squirrels follow me like it’s a Disney movie!”  That’s Mariah TCOB.  Ooh, idea!  I’m gonna do the rest of this in acronyms.  ODB TCOB SAGNOF UB40–Ugh, I failed at that exercise.  Grey does not equal a 14-year-old girl texting.  I told you yesterday if you take nothing else from the roundup, take away that you should grab Odubel.  And that’s me reiterating me!  Seriously, he’s 8-for-13 over the last three games with two homers.  Grab him!  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Tommy Joseph – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 10th homer.  I mentioned in the comments yesterday in Mike’s top 100 hitters that there’s gonna be 45 1st basemen in the top 100 hitters by season’s end.  If you can tell the difference between Smoak, Bour, Joseph, Yonder, Pujols, Morrison, et al (not the Israeli airline), you’re a better fantasy baseball ‘pert than I.  Remember, though, heavy is the head that wears the mustache.

Aaron Altherr – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 9th homer, hitting .295.  He was oh for his last four games, so I thought the magic might’ve died down, but the magic never dies unless you’re on a farm raising cage-free lions.

Johan Camargo – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs as he plays in front of Dansby.  Fun fact!  Camargo is a black market car in New Jersey.  “Yo, Joey, check out this guy’s Camaro!”  “Vinny, that’s not a Camaro!  That’s a Camargo!”  “Damn, I might go with that instead of the IROK Z I’m peeping.”  Less fun fact, everything about Camargo; there couldn’t be a less interesting hitter.

Bartolo Colon – 3 2/3 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 7.78.  You could drive a Camargo thru that Colon.

Ender Inciarte – 2-for-3, 2 runs and now 7 for his last 8, hitting .304.  There’s no Ender in sight for Ender, said Sally by the seashore.

Ian Happ – Didn’t start yesterday because he homered twice on Sunday and there’s no reason he didn’t start yesterday other than he’s on my team and it’s not Happ’ening.  Check your email for the invite to my pity party.  I used Evite, SO WHAT?!  WAH!

Wade Davis – Out on paternity leave.  When his wife first called him, he just thought she was doing a frantic rendition of “Wade in the Water,” but it was about her water breaking.  Carl Edwards and Koji Uehara could see a save or two in the mean’s while.

Albert Almora Jr. – 2-for-3 and his 3rd homer.  Would’ve made a nice batty call, but it’s hard to trust a bench bat on the Cubs to get playing time because Maddon’s got more options than one of those fancy soft drink machines.

Kris Bryant – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 13th homer.  “I need a Bryant!” said everyone in Oklahoma in the 1960s.

Eddie Butler – 5 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.75.  Eddie Butler sounds like a basketball player, doesn’t he?  No?  Meh, whatevs.  He’s barely a baseball player if you look at his peripherals.

Dan Straily – 7 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.59.  If Stream-o-Nator would’ve showed more guts with Straily, I likely would’ve streamed him.  C’est la Au Bon Pain.

Justin Bour – Might hit the DL due to lingering ankle pain.  Dolores O’Riordan is singing at her fantasy team, “Do you have to, do you have to, do have to let it linger?”  By the by, I Googled Dolores O’Riordan for the best five minutes of my life.  Hello, Cougar!

Wilson Ramos – Ready for rehab games, which means he could return in about seven to ten days, hit well for about four days then hurt his knee again.  Kidding, kinda.  He’s worth stashing, if you’re struggling at catcher (which is everyone, so struggling within reason).

Kolten Wong – Could be activated on Friday, which would be awesome news if I had saw that five minutes prior to weekly lineups locking rather than five minutes after.  Makes me wanna flog my Wong, for evil!

Carlos Martinez – 6 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.29.  Since there were so few games yesterday, it’s a good time to explain one element of the roundup.  Pitchers and hitters who have no change in value usually get ignored.  C-Mart would’ve been skipped on a normal day.

Scott Schebler – Hopes to return today, but needed another day of treatment before returning.  My Cougs tells me In Treatment was a wildly underrated show, and I say, “Uh-huh, oh yeah, yup,” not paying attention.

Asher Wojciechowski – 6 IP, 2 ER, 10 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.50.  I hear people struggle with pronouncing this guy’s name, so I have a helpful hint for you.  It rhymes with Pojciechowski.

Brian McCann – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer.  Making a case for the Astros’ Most Fallible Player and Gurriel is like, ‘Hold my beer.’  I’m doing that wrong, aren’t I?

Yulieski Gurriel – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  Hot schmotato alert!

Mike Fiers – 5 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.84 vs. Ian Kennedy – 5 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 5.33.  This matchup was billed as, “It Was FDR Not Kennedy Who Said ‘Only Thing To Fiers Is Fiers Himself.'”

Jorge Bonifacio – 2-for-5 and his 8th homer.  Guess who leads the Royals in homers?  Okay, not Bonifacio, but you thought for a second, “Hmm, the Royals are bad, could it be Bonifacio?”

Aaron Sanchez – Played catch on Monday for the first time since he had a recurrence of the blister which you might remember from, “Blister Boils:  At What Temperature, the Sequel.”

J.A. Happ – 5 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 5.33.  In this case, Happ happens.

Justin Smoak – 2-for-4 and his 15th homer.  As I think about Bour, To-Jo, Yonder, Smoak, etc., my eyelid twitches fighting harder to keep a straight face than Elton John at a gay pride parade.

Ryon Healy – 2-for-3, 5 RBIs and his 12th and 13th homers.  A corner infidel with power?  That’s exactly what fantasy needs right now!

Sean Manaea – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.81.  For some reason, the Stream-o-Nator hated Manaea last night at home vs. the Happful Jays.  Maybe Rudy can shed some light on that if we all think real hard.  When you thought real hard, you sharted your shorts, didn’t you?  Aw, shucks.  As for Manaea, his peripherals look solid — 10.1 K/9, 3.6 BB/9, 3.68 xFIP.  His stuff didn’t come close to these results last year, but he looks startable everywhere.

Justin Turner – Starting a rehab assignment in High-A Rancho Cuchamonga which translates literally to the Ranch of the Cockroach’s Mango.

Joc Pederson – Could begin a rehab on Friday.  That could also happen at the Ranch of the Cockroach’s Mango.

Alex Wood – Expects to start this weekend.  Wong, Wood, Dolores O’Riordan, this is the sexiest post I’ve ever written!

Hyun-Jin Ryu – 7 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.08 vs. Gio Gonzalez – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.03.  These two pitchers could easily switch places with each other, if they were to pee in the same fountain at the same time or make a wish during the same candle-blowing-out ceremony.  Or simply because they have similar K-rates and xFIPs, but Gio’s walk rate is worse.

Jayson Werth – Hit the DL with Ryan Raburn taking his spot (on the roster, not on Bloodline).  Hopefully, Dusty’s smart enough to play Raburn (0-for-4) and doesn’t try to play Zimmerman in the outfield, or that will speed up his eventual DL stint tenfold.  By the way, if you want to open an Etsy shop selling origami cranes called Tenfold, I’ve trademarked the name, but I’ll let you operate under my banner for a small finder’s fee.

Anthony Rendon – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 11th homer as he hit 6th and Raburn hit 2nd.  Rendon has a top twenty OBP in the majors; Raburn has a top twenty excuse for not being in the major leagues all season.  He sucks.

Oliver Perez – 1/3 IP and the save because Dusty’s crazy or because Koda Glover was tired from working Sunday.  Hoping it’s not the obvious choice here, but a little bit worried.

Eduardo Rodriguez – Shut down for three to four weeks.  That comes on the recommendation of Dr. James Andrews.  The good doctor added, “If I need a new jacooz after a month, I’ll operate on Ed-Rod’s knee.”  It’s no surprise Dr. JA also stands for jackass.

Eduardo Nunez – 2-for-5 and his 4th homer, hitting near-.325 in the last week, and has two homers in the last two games.  Stop worrying about The Keepers, and get hot for The Convent!

Jeff Samardzija – 7 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA down to 4.29.  Man, he puts the workhorse in workhorsezija.  Halp and I discuss Samardzija on the podcast that’s coming later today.  You can hardly wait!  No, you!

Junior Guerra – 5 IP, 1 ER, 10 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 1.83.  See blurb on C-Mart for further (non)reading on Guerra.

Travis Shaw – Left for a few days on paternity leave.  Damn, someone’s stopping at the Yankee Candle store and Jiffy Lube–*intern whispers in my ear*  I’m told this is for the birth of a child, not to conceive one.

Brett Phillips – 1-for-3 as he was called up for a few days to fill-in for Shaw.  I texted Prospector Ralph Lifshitz to find out his take on Phillips, let’s say he’s my own personal OnStar.  Call him, OnShitz.  Here’s what he said, “He was a top 50 guy universally going into 2016, 16 on my midseason prospect list but just awful down the stretch last year.  Up in AAA, he’s raked this year.  He was the big piece of the Carlos Gomez deal, and was more highly touted than Sunday Santana.  He’s got power, speed and seems to have found himself.  I always thought he was going to be a star.”  Thanks, OnShitz!  I think the Brewers brought up Phillips vs. Brinson for his laugh.

    Forever trying to improve through one thousand trades at a time. Rcl format. Bottom half in steals and runs, but top 3 in dongs, ribbies, and avg. Would you trade would you trade bryant, cruz and travis for hamilton, cano and iglesias? My outfield would be conforto, broxton, and blackmon if I got rid of those two (was using bryant in the outfield since I have arenado)
    Thanks!

    • @Rocky Mountain High: Cheaper speed is fools gold- Hammy has huge huge trade Value this year with nobody stealing- How bout just trading the ever underated Cruz for Hammy straight up?

      Trades are never easy- Igelsias (Sp/rp) and Billy (sb rate) are big weapons in those cats- Ifits tough to trade in the league and your powers super legit I might do that deal even though Im technically losing a lil value

    Fantastic write-up, read it feeling full of lustful zest.

    a. ODB for president!!!

    b. Have a colleague coming over for a meeting in 10 minutes. He couldn’t tell me over the phone what it was all about. I can’t wait, the suspense is killing me (Being sarcastic, it is not killing me at all.).

    c. John Rambo Quote of the day for June 6

    Sheriff: ‘You think Rambo was the only guy who had a tough time in Vietnam? He killed a police officer, for Christ sake!’

    [Actually, Rambo did not kill the police officer. He threw a rock at the windshield of the helicopter the police officer was in, then the helicopter pilot tilted at a crazy angle and the police officer fell out and died on impact on the rocks below. Had he been wearing his seatbelt…]

    Colonel Trautman: ‘You’re goddamned lucky he didn’t kill all of you…’

    Sheriff: ‘This character! He comes waltzing in here, full of all kinds of good advice. And wished we’d let that goddamned maniac go on the loose, so we could save our own asses! Well, we saved our asses, Colonel! And we didn’t let him go on the loose. The best man lost! And he doesn’t like it!

    [Sheriff Teasle still doesn’t know that Rambo survived!! More spoiler alerts ahead!]

    [Sheriff returns to his office.]

    Officer: ‘- How you doin’, Will?’

    Sheriff: ‘- Hold my calls.’

    Cheers,

    Let’s hope Nunez keeps it up.
    Just processed a trade for him, gave up Suarez to grab a few extra SBs and cut down on the Ks.
    My infield is coming together nicely, if it weren’t for my nerves around first base.
    1st/CI: Davis, pujols, smoak, Nunez
    2nd/ss/MI: Correa, altuve, LeMahieu
    Got Holliday on bench and holding bird to see what he does of the DL.
    First base this yr is a shituation where you could throw them all in a bag, mix it up, and just grab one for the same numbers.

        Who knew – until I looked closer, that Holliday was quietly solid in the Bronx.
        Your thoughts on Gallo – I’m feeling like between Chris Davis and Gallo – my Ks will go through the roof – Is the power worth it? 14 off the lead in HRs and basically 50 out of the pack in Ks.

    Hello,
    Quick question? I am dead last in saves because I lost Familia and k rod early. Just picked up Ramos. I am only 3 saves out of a point then will need 13 to close the gap. I am 2nd is 3rd QS, 1st in wins and 3 in ks. I am middle of the pack in whip and Era.
    My staff:
    Duffy, Hendricks, Paxton, Ray, Manea , Guerra, Vargas, Cahill and Morton.
    Here’s the question, Do I dump saves or try to bring in closers? I will have to pay through the nose because everyone knows I am desperate. If I don’t dump who are a few guys on the cusp. I just picked up Rivero (Pit).

    Thanks,

    Hey Grey, what are your thoughts on Chris Taylor? We have limited waivers and I was down a SS – I had to resort to picking up Andrelton Simmons the other day, but now I notice that Taylor is available and he qualifies as a SS in our league.

    10 team OBP h2h limited season moves

    C Martin
    1B Votto
    2B Villar
    SS Story
    3B Rendon
    OF Harper
    OF Thames
    OF Conforto
    UTL Bellinger
    BN C Santana

    1) Lately, Villar’s struggles have led to a lower spot in the line up and more days on the bench. With my current roster construction, would you be in favor of trying to trade Santana for another hitter with 2B eligibility? Otherwise, I’ve basically just been choosing between Santana and Bellinger for UTL on a daily basis. My team could use some speed as well.

    2) How would you rank these targets: Jose Ramirez, Dee Gordon, Carpenter, Odor, Murphy

    • @bossmanjunior333: Sit tight- If you need speed just wait out villar, hes your best lottery ticket and has about the only upside worth waiting on in a 10 man league

    Grey,

    What is fair return for a SP like Severino? Top 50 bat? Would you trade Severino and Odor for Jose Ramiriez and Robbie Ray? OBP/SLG league, so Ramirez helps where Odor hurts. And I am hurting in OBP.

    Or at this point is it likely best to hold onto Odor with the hopes that his ROS will be better than any likely replacement? In other words, is Odor’s ROS likely to be better than Ramirez’ ROS? The Buy/Sell tool says so, though it’s close.

    Thanks

    Hi Grey my team in my NL only is bleeding. It’s a keeper and and I kept 4 Cubs for a total of $5 (Rizzo, Schwarber, Russell and Baez) in a $260 cap league. Needless to say I was ecstatic going into the season. I also have Maikel Franco. What do I do with these clowns? Keep all of them and just swallow this season or clean house?I know Rizzo is good but I hate the streakiness. Any advice?

    Madam Secretary,

    Samardzija has a 59-1 strikeout to walk ratio over his last seven starts. His peripherals are pretty darn good. (a) what do you think of him for the rest of the season; and (b) do you think he might be dealt to a contender and I assume that would hurt his numbers except for wins, so how would that change things?

    A.Hicks (-$5) vs. Pomeranz
    K.Davis ($17) vs. M.Estrada

    Verlander has been terrible, and I’ve gotten decent offers for him, like Hahn and Aroldis Chapman for Verlander straight. I like that but hate that I’m losing a big arm that I was hoping to have.

    Grade the trade:

    Correa, Archer, Hamilton, Desmond, Travis

    or

    Betts, Rendon, Segura, Owings, Contreras

    We will swap Desmond for Owings once Segura comes off the DL no matter what happens.

    i’ve been a mazara guy this year and have been really happy with him but that said I am lacking on stolen bases. Odubel Herrrera is available,
    I dont want too many bench hitters but my hitters have been pretty good including mazara

    my OF looks like this Stanton, Desmond, Brantley, Conforto, and Mazara

    should I just hold Mazara since he is hitting 3rd in the lineup and all around has been better than herrera or is this a good time to buy into herrera he is currently a free agent

    Hey Grey! In 12 team keepers (7 reserve, weekly lineups), are you dropping a $1 Delino to fill those AVG/R/SB stats with Whit, Adam Frazier, or Souza (not really like Delino, but he’s there)? AVG is most important here…

    Similarly, could you see benching Hanley and riding Mauer’s hot streak until Hanley busts out, or just hold?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Souza — Mauer? Oy

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

        @Grey: Hahah dark times! Yeah forget Mauer. I think I overreacted to noticing that Hanley has Story’s stat line (plus .30-40 points BA) despite not being on the DL at all (I’d say something about what Story has done since returning from the DL, but don’t want to jinx it). Hanley’s gotta get better, but still hurts!

    Thanks

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: You asked a variation of this earlier and my answer was Goldy. I’m still leaning on the Goldy side. Just curious as to what kind of other SPs are on the wire atm. Cause you’ll be getting back some Streamers.

      Also, is this h2h or roto? And how many teams? Is EY Jr still on the wire? He may start and get a decent amt of SBs while Trout is out and can hold you over in that category for now if needed. Just some food for thought.

    • Grey

      Hold Goldy

      • Bobby says:

        @Grey: thanks Gray

        I got Goldy

        Traded Keuchel , Berrios and Hamilton for Goldy , Gray and Quintana.

        It’s a roto points league , I needed RBIs , HRs and Avg. I’m leading in wins and Era and 2nd in SB.
        I still have Darvish , Paxton , Stroman , Cole , w Jon Gray , E Rod, and T walker coming back so I could afford to trade Keuchel who I obtained 3 weeks earlier for Thames. I just need Machado and Miggy to get going and I should be good.

    How much confidence do you place in the ROS Player Rater? Looking to deal for guys but just not sure how much I treat that as gospel or go with my gut.

    For instance, Player Rater Rest of Season has:
    -Miguel Cabrera ranked 11th (so far this season at 617)
    -Kyle Schwarber ranked 20th (so far 318)
    -Hanley Ramirez ranked 28th (so far 459)
    -Rougned Odor ranked 29 (so far 537)

    yep, i dropped ODB in 20 team dynasty where i already have blackmon at CF. there were guys in FA going better than him that could even be streamed (grossman and such, we only start 3 OF, 1 util). i needed to make room for dahl (eventually) and on a sunday grab either a 1B or a LF for when mazouza plays a lefty. bet you can guess which day i dropped him too. not 2 days before i had told a possible trade partner who was attempting to get z.collins/ODB for something like molina/napoli (i am TEX and have a minimum number of TEX players needed). i told him the same way FA has better 1B than napoli (aguilar and some others by TRON) you’ll probably be able to get ODB for free if he keeps getting benched. this is similar to how i lost ozuna in this league 2 years ago as well. if a guy is awful for like over 5 straight weeks and his own team starts benching him apprehension arrives.

    anyhoo, SON must not have FIP added into what is calculates, as it HATES hahn, BUT hahn is 10th best FIP for SP’s in your FIP/ERA machine. this being known drop gsellman for hahn right now? folty/gsellman my worst SP in this 14 team league with QS/K9

    Grey, long time since I’ve come bearing fantasy questions, but hopefully you can help a brother out.

    Sitting at 9-0 in my H2H points league and, barring catastrophe, I should make the playoffs.

    I’ve been offered Bumgarner for Kepler & Jon Gray.

    My pitching staff at present –
    sp: Strasburg, Keuchel, Porcello, Manaea, Shoemaker (Wood, Taillon, and Gray are on the DL).
    rp: Kimbrel, Diaz, Brach, Johnson, Bedrosian

    This is a keeper league, so I’m hesitant to deal young guys like Kepler and Gray for a rental in Bumgarner (would cost $40 to keep next year vs. $5 for Kepler and $10 for Gray). Am I being silly? Is the deal magically better if I can swap Porcello or Shoemaker for Gray? Is Max Kepler really the destructive force of nature you’ve held him out to be? I’m plagued with indecision. Help me Obi-grey Kenobi, you’re my only hope.

    deep ass AL only (10 team, so not quite as deep as one of the ones you’ve shown your draft for this year) with QS. i have all of these
    salazar/hahn/clevinger/peacock/shoemaker/morton/quintana/gausman: gotta think salazar’s getting that job back soon, but will it be from clevinger or tomlin (seems important in this convo). i’m batting about .500 with faria adds, missed it by about 2 minutes in one 20 teamer with QS. issue being of course we have no idea if this dude sticks. last weeks i batted about 92% in being around internet when deleon came up, but that didn’t last at all.

    • Mordacious Levator says:
      (link)

      @Mordacious Levator: the question being do i have a drop for faria there.

    • Grey

      What are you asking?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      You have a ton of underperforming SPs, but don’t see anyone to drop

      • Mordacious Levator says:
        (link)

        @Grey: oh yeah and duffy on DL in this. AL only gotta hold these guys. the boyd’s of the world is what you are left with if you gamble on a guy who might get one start (of course i did nab peacock in similar fashion)

    Current SP’s: Carrasco, Lester, Paxton, Hill, Nova, Shoemaker, Leake, Bundy, Wheeler, Triggs, Godley, Jon Gray and Nola.

    Have a couple of lineup-based questions –

    1. Have a logjam at corner infield spots with Abreu, Healy, Reynolds, Alonso and Villar. Would you drop any of the above for extra OF help? Players available include Inciarte, Santana, Altherr, Pillar, Kepler or Puig.

    2. I have the #1 waiver priority and Longoria was just dropped. Worth using the #1 pick on him or better of holding with the players listed above?

    Thanks.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Lose Healy for Ender 2. I’d grab Longo

      • tank1 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks, Grey. If I drop Healy for Ender, who would you drop of the remaining four (Reynolds, Alonso, Abreu or Villar) for Longoria? Thanks.

        • tank1 says:

    Rizzo or Conforto/Lindor in a H2H keeper league?

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Rizzo, it’s fair

      • toneDEAF! says:
        (link)

        What if Goldy is already your 1St baseman? It is nice having Goldy at 1B and Rizzo at IF but Lindor is a nice upgrade at SS and conforto looks like he could be a beast for years. Then again it’s a points league so it’s all about getting as many good producers as you can.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Take Lindor/Conforto then

  146. joemorganhair says:

        @Grey: Cue the “Should I drop for Scooter?” questions

    In last week’s podcast when the topic of streaming came up, there was one point that I always struggle with – when the streamer performs well and you feel like you should hold him… That’s where I am tonight with Nola. Mostly because I was a big Nola fan last year and tried to trade for him all year, until he had his injury.

    I was going to drop him for Biagini or Straily, but now I might decide to lose Trumbo since everyone in my league won’t offer me anything above waiver level for Trumbo and I have Ces coming back soon (I think)

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Can hold Nola for a game to see if he’s corrected himself… I’d stream in a 10-team league tho…. I dropped Miranda after his 9 IP, 1 ER game, granted, Nola’s got a better pedigree than Miranda, but meh

        @Grey: His next game is @STL – another softball matchup I believe…

    Scooter Gennett, dear Lord. Shades of the Chisenhall game at Texas a few years ago.

        Oh dear lord. Do you need a hotline number?

        @Grey: at least this wasn’t one of those “damn i was about to stream one of him or guy X or Y and went with one of the other two situations” cause those hurt, bad. wainwrong had actually been fairly good for like 3 in a row.

    Would you trade C Santana and Maeda for Carpenter and Matz in an OBP league?

    Should I drop bauer, for strailey after his start against the white sox. He plays LAD after. OR is Lad A good matchup for him. Strailey has some easyier matchups pitts, minn.

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      @Trailor park Boy in ny: If you subscribe to the xFIP school then the answer is no. Straily’s xFIP of 4.44 indicates he’s in for a small correction from his current 3.59 ERA, while Bauer’s xFIP is 3.19 so he’s expected to go in the opposite direction. But you can probably make the swap – Straily does pitch in the NL East
