For Mother’s Day, MLB uses pink bats. My suggestion for Father’s Day is bats with hairy bags hanging off the handle. This suggestion appears to fall on deaf ears, even though I go through the proper channels, filling out all the comment cards in the lobby at MLB headquarters. Even chitchatting with Jim, at security, for way longer than most people! No one hears my suggestions! Shoot, I was typing that instead of saying it out loud in the lobby. Hmm, my bad. Hope everyone’s Father’s Day was nice, with a special shoutout to the fathers who are “yelling at cars on their street to slow down” years old. You know who you are (all of you). So, all the fantasy fathers got good news this weekend, major rookie nookie incoming (not from their wives, as usual). First call-up was Alex Kirilloff, after being in my Friday Buy. Not sure if we’ll talk about him today on the podcast, since BDon spent the last six weeks talking about him incessantly like he lost a bet. Next up was Riley Greene, as he started in the majors on Saturday. Dan Pants gave you his Riley Greene fantasy on Saturday. I’ve been giving you a Riley Greene fantasy for the last six months. If you don’t pick up Riley Greene, you hate winning and America. You’re a Communist. I’m sorry, please enter your driver’s license number in the comments. We need to send people to your house. Finally, the Pirates made all our dreams come true. No, they didn’t dissolve into other teams, so all their pitchers could become aces. They called up Oneil Cruz! Literally just gave you my Oneil Cruz fantasy. It’s all there. The “it” I am referring to are his five tools and my post. Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:

Mitch Keller – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.72. After a shaky 1st inning, Keller settled in and showed more of what he’s shown since the end of May.

Jack Suwinski – 3-for-3 and his 9th, 10th and 11th homer, hitting .230. Drafting Matt Olson or waiting until May 15th to randomly pick up a free Jack Suwinski. Hmm…weighing options.

Yermin Mercedes – Signed with the Giants. Now the Giants are in search of a left-handed batter named Benz.

Alex Cobb – 4 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 5.62, as he was activated from the IL. I know he hasn’t been fun to own, but Cobb’s got great peripherals–*dodges tomato*–don’t shoot the messenger!

Lorenzo Cain – Designated for assignment. Cain…Sugar…Athlete rejected! Governors corrected! Gangsters, thugs and smugglers of Spider Tack thoroughly respected!

Hunter Renfroe – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 13th homer, as he homered in every game of the series with the Reds. Or as Scooby Doo would say, “Renfroe!”

Nick Lodolo – Will make one more rehab start. Legit forgot this guy exists. What year is it? Reds turn day-to-day injuries into “Does (player’s name) still play baseball?”

Kyle Wright – 6 IP, 5 ER, 12 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.94. The wind was blowing in and it was the Cubs. The Braves scare me so much because they get quality innings from seemingly anyone, then those pitchers disappear almost as quickly. Hopefully this isn’t the start of a long road to Touki.

Ian Anderson – 6 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.35. Don’t put him in the Touki category just yet!

Michael Harris II – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer. II with III all in the last VI days, as he rises his schmotato profile.

Frank Schwindel – Hit the IL with a lower back strain. Tough break for the Cubs’ bullpen.

Justin Steele – 5 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.27. Just looked at Streamonator for Steele’s next and saw him vs. Pirates, but a negative value and I’m not sure about that. Seems worth a little how’s your father, as they say on Father’s Day.

Jameson Taillon – 5 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.70. Just another day at the Ford dealership for a Yankees pitcher. That’s as in Whitey Ford.

Josh Donaldson – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .232. This guy is even worse than Matt Olson (barely).

Gleyber Torres – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 13th homer, hitting .267. Even a rabbi’s liking what he’s getting from this Goyber.

Kyle Higashioka – 1-for-3 and his 4th homer, and 4th homer this week. Did Higa find his strioka this week for any reason other than I just picked up Trevino? No, he did not.

Anthony Rizzo – 1-for-2 and his 18th homer. HR to the Izzo!

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 17th homer. Cake Batter when you wanna raw dog your fantasy opponents.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. – 1-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 4th homer, as he hit a grand salami. A big salami the size of…well, it’s in meters and I don’t understand those.

Teoscar Hernandez – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer. Just hit, like, twelve more homers this week and we’d be so good.

George Springer – 1-for-4, and a slam (13) and legs (5), hitting .264. His ground balls are way up; his fly balls are down; his xSLG is down; his HardHit% is down. Just about everything you want to see is down, except for actual production.

Corey Seager – 1-for-2 and his 15th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games. Just realized Seager and Semien (1-for-4, 12th steal) sound like musical duo that are also a romantic couple but no one knows. “Hey, did you know Seager and Semien are opening for ABBA?” “Yeah, I think I accidentally lost my tickets.”

Robbie Grossman – 2-for-3, 4 RBIs and his 2nd homer, and 2nd homer in as many games. Hot schmotato alert!

Mookie Betts – Hit the IL for at least two weeks with a cracked rib. The guys fix him up with this girl named Eve, and next thing he knows…damn! I’m not gonna say this is karma for him saying he wasn’t healthy in the preseason, when he was in fact healthy, but *looks both ways real slow, leans in and whispers* I’m saying that.

Andrew Heaney – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 0.59, as he was activated from the IL. Absolutely wild how good he’s pitching this year. Granted, with about six weeks between starts. I’d grab him in all leagues to see if this Heaney stays around longer than two starts.

Oscar Gonzalez – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 1st homer. He was a schmotato last week, and today I’m saying: Samesies.

Luke Weaver – 3 2/3 IP, 9 ER, ERA at 13.50 vs. Dylan Bundy – 8 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 5.17. Holy crap! Weaver is an Empath and has taken on Dylan Bundy’s characteristics.

Christian Walker – 2-for-4 and his 17th and 18th homer. Similar to Clarence from It’s A Wonderful Life, a Walker fly ball gets its wings to fly over a fence each time someone asks to drop him.

Pavin Smith – 2-for-4 and his 9th homer. Drafting Teoscar/Matt Olson sobbing over not drafting Walker/Pavin.

Buddy Kennedy – 1-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 1st major league homer, a grand slam. For those unfamiliar, Buddy Kennedy got an exception from Manfred, and wears blue jeans. He also has a great hit tool, and could hit .280+, but has very little power and speed. Not sure how long he’s staying up either, or playing, so I’d be careful in mixed leagues with chasing the dungarees.

Brad Keller – 7 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 3 walks, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.30 vs. Cole Irvin – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.14. This matchup of the A’s/Royals was appropriately started by Keller, because no one wanted to see it.

Seth Brown – 3-for-4, 2 runs, and his 9th homer. “Well done, my thon.” That’s Seth Smith.

Sean Murphy – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 8th homer. Hey, it’s my old catcher who I dropped and haven’t looked back at until right now. Say hello to your mother for me!

Johnny Cueto – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.95. *running my finger down Cueto’s ERA to Lucas Giolito’s ERA and having a heart attack*

Patrick Sandoval – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.70. Should make some kind of rule that if a pitcher has a sub-3 ERA by July, you can’t ask if you should pick him up or drop him. T-minus 10 days.

Mike Trout – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 21st homer, and 5th homer this weekend vs. Mariners. “First time he’s ever hit Seattle well,” said Guy Who’s Never Watched Mike Trout Before.

Manny Machado – Out for several weeks with an ankle sprain. Appeared to badly roll his ankle as he was trying to beat out a dribbler. One time this mfer hustles! What are you doing, brah?! You couldn’t jog like every time you’re headed to first? As I mourn Machado, I am actively looking at C.J. Abrams on my leagues’ waiver wires.

Trevor Story -1-for-3, 2runs and his 10th homer, hitting .221. Real question: Does Trevor Story retire for three weeks, then come back for one week, then rinse and repeat?

Nick Pivetta – 7 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners,10 Ks, ERA at 3.31. Isn’t it time we gave Pivetta the respect to not look at Streamonator and just start him every time out?

Andre Pallante – 5 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.69. Welp, it’s time I took a closer look. Welp II, The Return of Welp: He’s a NL-Only pitcher, at best. Andre Pallante does sound like he’d have an eponymously named dope hair salon.

Tyler O’Neill – 3-for-4, 1 run and his 6th steal, but left with hamstring tightness. So, he’s day-to-day or out for six weeks. We shall see!

Taijuan Walker – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.88. Thinking about inventing a time machine, going back to March and only drafting Yankees and Mets starters who were being drafted after the top 100. Who’s with me? If you raised your hand, you didn’t already go back in time with me, because this isn’t the first time I’ve asked this. You: *mind blown*

Jerar Encarnacion – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and a slam (1) and legs (1) He hit an absolute bullet the opposite way that crushed my sweet, sweet Bassitt with inherited runs. Grabbed Encarnacion in my NL-Only keeper a few weeks ago when Cooper went down, but he wasn’t called up, so I dropped him, then he got the call when Jesus went down on Friday, and didn’t reemerge on Sunday. Jerar’s your standard big bopper with no contact. He could hit 30 HRs and .215 right now in the majors. Has a sneaky decent OBP, as he can take a walk. Don’t know how long he stays up, so just a deep league guy for now.

Jeffrey Springs – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 2.00. Ya know when I like to see regression? When my pitchers are going against a tough opponent, not the freakin’ Orioles!

Corey Kluber – 6 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.46. Streamonator tells us Kluber gets the Pirates next, and he won’t be their peg boy.

Sandy Alcantara -8 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 1.72. People in leagues that count IP or QS or CG, Sandy’s gotta be a top 2 starter. People not in those leagues, he’s still a top what? Three? Five? Can’t imagine going much later than that.

Anthony Santander – 2-for-2 and his 12th homer, and 3rd homer in the last five games. O’s might be a shizzy franchise, but their top five hitters, and nine-hole guy, since he has 17 steals, are all shallow-league rosterable.

Seranthony Dominguez – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 1.73, and his 1st save, as he pitched the 10th on Saturday with Brad Hand (1 IP, 1 ER, 2.21 ERA) coming into a tie game in the 9th. Still don’t think this is done deal, but Dominguez has to be in the lead now. Have some fava beans with your saves, Seranthony.

Zach Eflin – 2 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.43. Left the game, unable to get his pitches down. This offseason he had a surgically-repaired knee during the offseason, so that might’ve been the issue. Taking a knee on Eflin, while also punting him.

Luis Garcia – 3-for-4, 3 runs, hitting .360. Let’s see how long it takes Davey Martinez to figure out Rocky III should be hitting leadoff.

Maikel Franco – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .259. Not bad for a guy pegged by Donkey Teeth. *pauses for a very long time* Pegged for NL MVP.

Juan Soto – 1-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 14th homer, hitting .218. Sexy Dr. Pepper is more like a Flat Can of Shasta. He’s hitting .220 as we head into July. Prior to this year, he only hit below .250 for one month ever.

Jackson Tetreault – 7 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 5.73. Three unearned runs make this line appear better than it was. His K/9 is below his ERA, which makes Tetreault as good as the French automobile he sounds like. “For a radio antenna, how about a stale baguette?” That’s a French automaker.

Josiah Gray – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.95. I already can’t wait to draft Josiah Gray in every league next year. What, it’s just a hobby. *sets alarm for 3 AM so can wake up right when waiver guys become available*

Could you evaluate and weigh in on my game plan? So I have Machado who as we know is injured, and you said Helsley isn’t the closer, so the move is i dropped Helsley for Oneil Cruz and now I have an open 3b spot due to Machado, so I figure if Machado hits IL i use the free spot to add a 3b, if cruz flops i drop him for Houck, when Machado comes back i drop the replacement 3b or Cruz to reopen the spot for Machado. What are you thoughts on this?

1. Realistically Oneil Cruz or Willy Adames? (Espn Redraft league, walks don’t count or ops or any of that) now take your answer and subtract potential freshly called up rookie overhyping.
2. Two part question Is helsley the closer? And if he isnt and was to get the job sometime soon wouldnhe better than Tanner Houck rest of season?
3. Espn says Machado is DTD still, im hoping for either QUICK recovery like next few days or an IL stint announced asap so I can add cruz like immediately.
4. Opinion on Andrew Heaney this year? I think you went over him in your write up but do you think he’s really THIS good? Over rehab he was nearly unhittable and before and seemingly after the injury he was pretty elite at the mlb level too. I don’t know him enough to tell if he’s made major changes however I did read something about the slider being a big swing and miss pitch for him and the dodgers got him to use it more (and to more success)
5. Whats going on with David Bednar? He’s becoming a multi-inning closer?! Huh? He’s gone 2.2 and 2 innings in his last two outings and gotten a save and a win, as the obvious closer of the pirates. What gives?
6. Thanks for your help throughout the season, my team is 8-1-1 in weeks won so far

Hi Grey,

Walker for Hayes straight up won’t happen. Riley for basically Walker, Mahle, and Lauer was rejected. Rojas for Lauer and Cooper was also rejected, but (A) below addresses this.

I am currently in 4th place (6.5 games out), and there are two stacked teams ahead of me, one of which I play two more times. I appreciate your patience.

Which trade would you do (A-C), and in what order? Or would you just hold (D/E).

A)   1st place owner wants to keep Rojas, but he’s making Gorman, Morel, or Turner are all available, but prefers to go Gorman for Greene. Greene may only have 10 +/- starts left, but Gorman could also get sent back down before Greene is shut down. Gorman cannot be kept.   

B)   Walker (3) for Hayes (15) might only happen if I include Josiah Gray(4) for Manaea (Can’t be kept).

C) Riley’s owner (in 2nd place) doesn’t seem interested in trading unless it’s for a big name. I’m seriously thinking about trading Soto since I won’t keep him at $75. However, he’s been so bad, I doubt the other owner would willing to trade away his $20 Riley ($280 cap).

D)  If TO’N goes on IL pick up Yepez since he might get in the lineup more.

E)  Once DeSclafani comes off IL (and hopefully TO’N avoids IL), I stash Brian Anderson and just keep plugging one of Perdomo/Yepez/La Stella/Franco in at 3B. It’s $2 per transaction.

10 TM, NL-Only, H2H, 5×5 (OBP)

CA   Ruiz (3)
1B   Walker (3)
2B   India (14)
3B  Perdomo 
SS   Edman (20)
INF  Cronenworth (15)
OF   Acuña (62)
OF   Soto (75)
OF   T O’Neill (16)
OF   Edman (20)
UT   A. Thomas
B    Cooper (5)

SP  Alcantara (20), Webb (22), Lauer (5), Gray (4), Mahle (13), Greene (10), Quintana
RP  Ta. Rogers, Rainey, Hand
IL   DeSclafani (11) and Cobb (7)

Based on C being left out, I figure you also thought it was crazy to trade away Dr. Sexy. It was out of pure disappointment and desperation. I too hope Soto goes off!

I didn’t include the Walker for Rojas possibility because I was thinking you like Hayes(15) more than Rojas (12) as a keeper.

Thank you!

O’Neill hit the IL. I dropped Yepez last week, and he clears at midnight. Unfortunately, Yahoo doesn’t allow me to put a claim in for him since I dropped him. If someone else claims him, I’ll have to do the Gorman trade. I’ll be up at some point in the wee-wee (see what I did there) early part of the morning, and will try to add him. If not, looks like I’ll be getting Gorman, unless the other owner sees fit to hold now that there’s a hole ins STL lineup.

Every time I start to feel like trevor rogers is back to being useful and someone I want to get excited about, he goes out to pitch the 4th inning and quickly negates everything. It is manic-depressive. Fortunately I own him on a rebuilding dynasty team or I would need therapy. The dude just can’t seem to get out of his own way and pitch more than 5 innings. He was lucky to get a double play in the 5th so I guess I am trying to be optimistic.

Thanks, kinda figured on Musgrove – risky in weekly set ups!
Who would rather have in the short term to cover the keystone, Luis Garcia (Rocky III) or Brendan Rodgers?

Looking to drop someone and pick up Spencer Strider. Always in the market to beef up my rotation. I prefer pitchers to bench bats and feel like I have a few too many first basemen, maybe. Or could swap him out for another starting arm. Or go zero catcher. Anyone expendable for Strider, or should I hold for now?

Two cut decisions.
1) Carrasco or Bassit?

2) Kimbrel or Greg Soto? I know this sounds ridiculous, but Kimbrel has been shaky (or worse) and Hudson is a viable replacement; meanwhile, Soto has no competition.

12 team weekly h2h points league. Who am I starting out of the following 2 start pitchers for the week? McClanahan (NY PIT), Gonsolin (CIN ATL), Mahle (LAD SF), Strider (SF LAD), Joe Ryan (CLE COL) and Lynn (TOR BAL). We start 4 for the entire week and I was leaning towards benching Mahle and Lynn. Also have Wheeler, Pivetta and Pablo Lopez on my bench.

I am still in need of a 3B. Which do you like and in what order?

A) My Walker (3) for Hayes (15)

B) My Cronenworth for Rojas

C) My Cronenworth for Donovan

Also, do you think David Robertson gets traded, or does he stay in Chicago?

Thank you.

Do you like Austin Riley (18) ROS and beyond as a keeper?

Would you offer Walker(3) and one of Lauer/Greene/Mahle/DeSclafani for him? Which order would you try that’s most fair?

My current staff is:

Alcantara, Webb, Mahle, DeSclafani (IL) Gray, Lauer, Greene, Cobb, and Quintana

It’s a long shot. I gave him the option of DeSclafani and Mahle as well. I also added Cooper since he has Villar as INF.

For the Hayes deal, it looks like I would need to do Walker and Gray for Hayes and Manaea.

We’ll See.

Hey Grey! Happy belated Father’s Day! I hope Ted got you something to celebrate you yesterday.

10 team, h2h, 6×5 including ops. An owner in my league asked me for my Michael Harris and Oneil Cruz. He has the following players that he may part with:

Goldschmidt, Verlander, Ray, Rodon

Do you like any of these players in exchange for Harris and Cruz? If so, which ones and how would you rank them in order of preference?

Thanks!

Hi Grey,

Great job as per usual!

I’m in a h2h 12 team keeper. There’s 15 categories 8 are offensive and 7 are pitching related.

I was offered Olson (your buddy!), Severino and W. Contreras (Cubs) for McClanahan.

I need an extra keeper and was thinking that Severino would fill in as that for me.

Think this would be a bad deal for me? Or should I just hold for now?

Thanks,

Cersy

What’s up Grey

Going to see how this week plays out but don’t want to carry 2 bench bats. Was lucky enough to snag Cruz in my league. 12 team 7×7 with OBP, who is the drop out of Kebryan Hayes and Nolan Gorman? Assuming Cruz > both of them for now.

Thanks!

Did you wish Giancarlo a happy daddy’s day yesterday?

I’ve been hustling on the prospect front – I’m now rostering Vaughn, Witt, Kirilloff, Riley Green, and Cruz. I may have a problem…

I have Stephenson hurt and out for 4-6. Two catcher league w/ 13 teams. Kirk is C1, Narvaez covering for Stephenson at C2.

Would you trade Nestor for Cease and Adley? I could use more K’s and should be okay in WHIP. A healthy Adley seems nice instead of Narvaez and a hurt Stephenson (broken thumbs and catching/hitting don’t seem like a good combo.)

Is this enough for Nestor?

Thanks, and have an awesome day!

Hi Grey,

i have always finished in the both tier of my fantasy league. However, thanks to Blair, Hoove and you,i have picked up Tyler Anderson, Nick Pivetta, Jeffrey Spring, Jon Gray, Mike Mikolas and Cristian Javier. I am in now second place. My friends are shocked as am I. One down side is related to innings. Yahoo only allows you 9 innings/day. at this point, i would loose 11games. Essentially, any points won by a pitcher after September 20 would not count.

i would really welcome your advice. should i just sit anyone with a razz dollar of minus like Mikolas who is minus 5. Is it too early to worry about innings? At what point in the season, would you start to set limits. Looking forward to your help and any suggestions.

thanks!!
