Yesterday, the Indians called up Oscar Mercado, after a hilarious bit where they phoned their Triple-A team and asked to speak to Oscar and they were met with, “The Oscar Mercado called and said they’re out of you!”  The Indians have now cornered the mercado on Oscars like Meryl Streep.  Mercado has speed to burn. He is so fast he just ran into your room, mussed your hair and ran back out before you even had a chance to flinch, which is great because you’re secretly being filmed for the new Netflix game show, Flinch.  Mercado had one season in the minors with 50 steals.  I just became aroused like Lorenzo Lamas after he sees himself in the mirror.  Prospect Mike said of him, “Mercado came to Cleveland from St. Louis at last year’s trade deadline in a move that probably slipped under everybody’s radar. He had a crazy good season in Triple-A though, hitting .278 with eight homers and 37 steals.  Caveat:  Grey is dumb.”  What?  That’s not a caveat. I grabbed Mercado in a few leagues, because I could use steals, and, brucely, who doesn’t need steals?  Not to answer, but bat your eyelashes and look pretty. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Francisco Lindor – 2-for-2, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .296.  He has two more homers than Jose Ramirez, and same number of RBIs, and Lindor missed three weeks.  Behind door number one is ZOINKS, behind number two is YUP and there’s no door number three.

Shane Bieber – 6 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.81.  That’s one way to kick off the week.  *sticks finger into electrical outlet to feel something more pleasant*

Carlos Rodon – Out for year after Tommy John surgery.  It could be worse, he could pitch for the Mets and just need Tommy John surgery for a few years.

Nate Jones – Out for the year with flexor mass surgery.  He hopes to return next spring so someone can ask me, “Hey, Grey, handsome much?  Also, you think Nate Jones can close this year?”

Jose Abreu – 1-for-4 and his 10th homer.  Member when I used to say he was the Latino Big Hurt?  I apologize to Frank Thomas, who seems like he quickly becomes The Butt Hurt.

Welington Castillo – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 3rd homer.  Where’s the boeuf?  At the plate!

Reynaldo Lopez – 7 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 5.58.  Yeah, well, he was facing one of the worst teams.  Singing Coolio, “Been spending most my life throwing shade like a gangster parasol…”  The Indians rank 27th out of all MLB offenses and that’s counting the Marlins, who shouldn’t be counted as MLB.  Though, the Streamonator likes Lopez’s next start.

Yoan Moncada – 3-for-4 and his 8th and 9th homers, hitting .289.  Still don’t trust him fully, but his BABIP and reduced Ks tells me he’s more of a .255-65 hitter vs. the .235 one he was coming into this year.

Kendrys Morales – Designated for assignment.  That assignment is to do a blood transfusion with a 17-year-old to swap out his old goo for young goo.

Matt Olson – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer, and 2nd in as many games.  Wow, his power is returning quicker than Kim Jong-un turning on the electric in North Korea so he can try a recipe from his cookbook, “Despot Is Good For Cooking.”  A NY Times Bestseller.

Khris Davis – 2-for-4 and his 11th and 12th homer, hitting .243.  Damn, a .004 slump!

Mitch Haniger – 1-for-4 and his 10th homer, hitting .229.  A lot of people are asking about Mallex Smith.  More now than in the preseason.  Here’s the thing, prematurely balding men, where is he going to play?  Are they benching Bruce, Vogelbach, Haniger or Domingo indefinitely?  I mean, maybe for a start or two here and there, but Mallex has nowhere to play without an injury.

Daniel Vogelbach – 1-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .248.  Yeah, Mallex is just gonna start playing now even though he didn’t all of April.  Right with fifteen I’s.

Yusei Kikuchi – 6 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.64.  Doesn’t sound like a great pitching performance, until you realize that he threw a 12-inning perfect game yesterday if you add in pine tar.

Erik Kratz – DFA’d by the Giants for Aaron Altherr.  The Giants’ GM told a raunchy, sprawling story involving 30 teams taking their turn on the Giants in increasingly graphic ways and then saying it was all an act. What do you call that act? “It’s the DFA Kratz!”

Shohei Ohtani – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .250.  “I just traded my entire 1st place team for Ohtani.  How’d I do?”  That’s a comment from the future.  People love Ohtani.  Find someone who loves you like baseball fans love Ohtani.

Tommy La Stella – 3-for-5, 2 runs and his 10th homer, hitting .272.  When I told you to draft the top hitter from the Angels’ lineup 1st overall, you assumed I meant Trout.

Jose Berrios – 5 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.05.  Angels had some crunch-Berrios for breakfast. Any guesses where he was on the Fantasy Baseball Player Rater for starters before last night?  *points thumb up*  I’m saying Berrios was rated higher with my thumb motion, I didn’t say let that person out of the ring with the untamed lion.  It was basically Verlander, Ryu, Berrios and everyone else, but because we can’t have anything nice, there’s been two good starters this year and everyone else.  (Kidding, Berrios is still solid.)

Jorge Polanco – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, hitting .327.  The polar opposite of Ohtani in that I can’t find anyone who loves Polanco like he should be loved.  You can count on one hand the number of players who always seem headed for the cycle in every game, and not an Alfonseca hand.  Polanco is one of those players.

Marwin Gonzalez – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, 2nd homer in three games and hitting near-.375 in the last week.  Hot schmotato alert, but usually Marwin Gonzalez is like watching a bad porn star perform. Available for every position but an unexciting choice for all of them.

David Robertson – Shut down for three weeks after a visit to see Dr. Freeze.  Dr. James Andrews would’ve shut him down indefinitely, but Robertson had to go hawk some jewelry to pay for the doctor.

Aaron Nola – 3 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 4.86.  If you didn’t draft Nola, but wanted to, you haven’t learned anything. You just got off easy. You should be made to pay for the sins of drafting a top starter too. *removes belt* You will be punished!  As soon as I change my pants, they’re chafing my groin.  What?  You thought I was going to spank you with my belt?  You’re weird.  As for Nola, everywhere that David Simon set a show is slumping. Granted, his shows are about slumping cities.

Pat Neshek – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 3.68 and his 2nd save.  Hector Neris has pitched once in the last ten days, and that wasn’t even for a save.  So, Gabe Kapler might’ve forgotten he was their closer, or more likely, he has no closer.  I grabbed Neshek, but I bet he comes into a random game in the 6th inning in four days, then some other schmohawk gets a save.  This is a closerousel and around, around it goes. Where it stops, not even Kapler knows.

Cesar Hernandez – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, and his 2nd homer in five games, and hitting near-.375 in the last week.  Mr. risin’ schmotato, gonna keep on risin’!

Mike Moustakas – 1-for-4 and his 10th homer.  Moistasskiss!

Lorenzo Cain – 5-for-6 and his 4th steal, hitting .266.  He’s on pace for 16/16, which is great for Wade Boggs’s eyes, not so much for a top outfielder.

Freddy Peralta – 4 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 6.16.  This start was lame as a starter, but if he had an Opener in front of him, he would’ve been great.  Give Freddy his 1st inning cushion!

Nicky Lopez – Called up by the Royals to play 2nd base with Merrifield moving to the outfield.  Who is this Nicky Lopez kid who warrants that kind of move, to Whit? I’m glad you asked, Awkward Intro Question! Here’s what Prospect Mike said, “I tend to value pure hitting over other tools when I’m compiling these lists. Lopez scores well in that area. He’s also close to the majors with success in the upper minors. For a guy with below-average power, the fact that he hit nine homers between Double-A and Triple-A in 2018 was a pleasant surprise. Mix in his 15 steals and .308 average and I’m sold. Need more? His strikeout and walk rates were nearly identical in Triple-A (11%). That’s Jennifer Connelly beautiful.  Or reverse whatever the hell Grey is.”  C’mon, man!  In Triple-A, Lopez had a 3.6% strikeout rate and a 14.5% walk rate.  That’s goofy good.  He also had three homers and 9 steals.  Don’t want to compare anyone to Jose Altuve, but if the shoe fits–Actually, that’s a thimble.  No, wait, that’s Altuve’s shoe? Damn.  I tried to pick him up in all leagues, but Nicky no lucky.

Matthew Boyd – 4 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 3.15.  Can we talk about how I call him Matt some days and Matthew other days?  I should call him Matthew when he doesn’t pitch well, and Matt when he does, because Matthew always makes me think the person said their name is “Matt” then sneezed.  What are you allergic too, homey?  Your name?  That sucks.  Okay, listen, this was not an easy start, so we’re going to forgive Matthew.  Gesundheit!

Aledmys Diaz – 2-for-4 and his 4th homer, and 2nd homer in three games.  Okay, not much happened yesterday, so I’m trying to make a hot schmotato out of a mole-tato.

Robinson Chirinos – 1-for-2, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer.  Uh-oh, Chirinos!

Alex Bregman – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 13th homer, hitting .275.  Member how worried you were in the preseason about Bregman’s elbow?  No? That’s because you’ve blocked it out.

Brad Peacock – 5 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners (4 BBs), 3 Ks, ERA at 4.01.  His game log is all over the map, and I don’t mean because he’s pitched in different cities.  One start is 7 IP, 12 Ks and pearly jams in the Rusty Kuntz, and other games it’s 3 2/3 IP, 7 ER and Cooter’s on the CB pulling over the Duke Boys.  I have no confidence in Peacock right now, but I would own him in 100% of leagues, because, when shizz is right, it’s real right.

Nick Kingham – 4 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 7.84.  He desperately needs a trade to another team.  C’mon, Pirates, free him to be good!

Robbie Ray – 5 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.14.  Robbie Ray was propped up to a huge early lead, and he coasted out for a free night at the W on the Ivictory Coast.  Room and scoreboard were all on the house.

Jarrod Dyson – 2-for-5, 2 runs and two steals (8, 9).  I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve owned Dyson for the better part of three weeks because my steals shituation is so dire.  Yes, “He went to Jarrod,” for SAGNOF.

Eduardo Escobar – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 8th homer, hitting .288. Fun fact!  There’s a class you can take at Colombia University called Drug Dealing 101, that is sometimes abbreviated Edu-Escobar.  That’s not Columbia University in New York, by the way.

Christian Walker – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 8th homer, hitting .292.  The White Walker has returned!  What is dead will never die, except for any interest in Game of Thrones after this final season.

Aaron Hicks – Activated from the IL.  Wow, the Yankees are finally getting healthy…*holds finger to earbud* Wait, I’m getting word there’s more injuries…

Jonathan Loaisiga – Hit the IL, and shut down for a month with a rotator cuff strain.  Well, that’s not awful–*holds finger to earbud* Crap, there’s more…

Miguel Andujar – Back on the IL and this will likely be the end of him for the year.  The good news is Chance Adams is up for the Yankees. He is there to cheer up everyone who is injured.

What would you put the over/under % of Shaw coming back at some point this year and being useful? Can’t believe this guy. I reached for him in one league so I wouldn’t have to worry about 2B/3B ha! How does a guy go from getting better in almost every aspect of hitting over the last 3 years to just vanishing all of a sudden at the age of 28? makes no sense.

yeah I’m on the fence of dropping him in a 14 team. Probably will hold until something useful comes along on the wire as there’s hardly anything right now. It’s a H2h league and I’m in second so almost guaranteed playoffs at this point. Even in a league like that where I can hold for months at this point and doesn’t really cost me much, I may just cut bait, truly sad.

I don’t think I’d bid $100 for either Soler (own him on 2 teams) or Myers (owned him last 2 years). Sounds like you’re pushing $150 on a rookie 2nd baseman.
If in fact Shaw is truly injured, after his last 2 years, do you believed he’ll be relegated to a bench bat ? Hiura will have to be a young Robbie Cano for that to be the case. I’ve been wrong before.

Norman Ginsberg

Both questions involved my bench bat (low risk; high gain).
– I already did the Soler move (if ng, OF easy to recover)
– Gone before able to move Myers.

Didn’t realize either was a reasonable move until I read the discussions.

Don’t mean to be Mr. Contrary, but to date:
Odor- .137/3/10/14/3
Schoop-.276/6/18/20/0
McNeil-.360/2/14/20/0

McNeil only recently took over leading off, and he has position eligibility everywhere but s.s. and c. Can see the Schoop argument (though I’d still rank him #2), but empty schmemty..200 b.avg. points and a chance of 100 runs and 60 r.b.i.’s, and coverage everywhere….

Reply to  183414

All good points. That’s kind of the reason I was shopping him though. That eligibility and average. I don’t think Schoop gets this deal done. I’m not sure McNeill will either, but I think he’s the better chance to net the bigger fish and production will be relatively close to Schoop(albeit without the eligibility). What do you think Grey?

I do own Eduardo, and I will say that Grey was reassuring when I questioned Eduardo’s shaky start to the season !. Just think Odor sucks and Schoop batting 8th, with some a.b.’s sure to be lost when Sano returns. I’m sure Marwin can play every position on the field.

Hiura or Daniel Murphy? Seriously… Have Baez, Mondesi, and Tatis as well, so MI isn’t really a need. But Murphy Brown’s a big deuce.

Dang… I hate that doode. First year Murphy owner bucking my Greycolyte role. Enticed by Coors (Field in this instance).

Agreed. I’ll never doubt you again. Unless it’s to drop Murphy for Hiura. He’s my low man when Tatis returns anyway. So I’m thinking I may do the deed a bit prematurely.

I’m not seeing other options. I’ve already ditched my C to grab Senzel.

12 team H2H 5×5 redraft. I’ve floated 5-6 trade options to get rid of some of the bench and upgrade somewhere with no takers.

C – empty
1B – Alonso
2B – Mondesi
3B – Dozier
SS – Baez
OF – Hoskins, JD, Santana
UTIL – Ohtani, Walker
Bench – Senzel, Dahl, Vlad, Murphy

SP – Stras, Smith, Bieber, Flaherty, Weaver, Ryu, Paddack, Marquez
RP – Romo, Givens

DL – Tatis, Strickland

14 team? h?2h dynasty league. I think my offense needs a little tweak. I was offered devers for mikolas, luzardo and bichette?. Sucks losing those guys, but devers is only 22 and offers just as much upside as the prospects I’d be dealing away. What do I do? Team is below.

Odor, Nicky Lopez, or Keston Hiura?

Thinking Keston but my minors knowledge has lapsed in recent months. I’m ready to move on from Fletcher.

Thanks for the shout out on Mailbag. Shaw was dropped several days ago for Derek Diet Rich in Power, but he’s been slumping some.

See the Brew Crew finally put Shaw on the IL with a right wrist strain. That’s what happens when you’re swinging hard and missing.

So, should I drop Dietrich or Chavis for Keston Hiura?

So nicky lopez promotion couod take away some at bats from hunter dozier im reading?

Also, its so dumb that a prospect like lopez has never played a big league inning at SS, and hes getting called up to play 2b, yet for fantasy he doesnt immediately get second base eligibility and is only listed as a SS. This should be changed. Lopez should have 2b eligibility from the jump if thats his damn position.

Not sure where, you saw that, but I would find it pretty unlikely they take ABs away from the guy who is finally breaking out. Its the OFs in KC that will lose the PT is what I’m seeing. Especially Chris Owings. Maybe Hamilton. Or Alex Gordon when he gets hurt. Kelvin Gutierezz loses the PT before Dozier does. And they have a DH slot for Soler, so he shouldn’t be affected either.

I’m ravaged by injuries… Would you drop any of the following to give me some flexibility… I currently can’t stream or pick up prospects, and I only have 2 DL spots

Judge, Stanton, Clevinger, Tatis, Glasnow

I also have Dee Gordon, Posey and Archer but they should be back soon

Thanks
