¡Hola!  Me llamo es Gris. ¡Bienvenido! Hoy en el SuperMercado Barridos tenemos una venta especial. The Bumblebee Man runs through screaming, “¡ESPECIAL!” ¡Gracias, Señor Miel! Ahora, cuando digo ir, tienes que correr por el SuperMercado y encontrar un bateador que te pueda dar poder y velocidad. “¡ESPECIAL!” Okay, Señor Miel, eso es suficiente.  “¡ESPECIAL!” Rápidamente se está volviendo claro por qué te vas a extinguir. “¡ESPECIAL” ¡Hayzeus Cristo, callate la boca, tienes tiempo sexy con tu madre! So, Oscar Mercado has 8 homers, 20 steals and a .305 average in 59 games, which is, ya know, your standard top 10 outfielder pace of 22/54/.300. You didn’t know he played that many games?  Well, because he didn’t.  I was combining his Triple-A and major league numbers, but, with how the ball is jumping out of stadiums, I think that’s fair. Don’t agree?  Don’t care.  Mercado is ESPECIAL!  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Roberto Perez – When I’m telling you to buy Roberto Perez, we are officially through the looking glass, and, once we pass through the glass, we turn around and there’s a pressed ham up against the glass.

Jake Bauers – The clock is ticking on Jake Bauers.  He’s been dog-eared already as a 2020 sleeper.  Can he defeat the non-descript Eastern European terrorists who are trying to blowing up his fantasy value? Can he save his daughter? Will he get road rage because he didn’t have his morning coffee?  This is going to be the longest episode of 24 ever!

Ryan McMahon – It’s so Rockiesque to play Ryan McMahon at 2nd base with his defense the way it is.  He has the range of Tom Arnold conked out on goofballs.  However, he has been hitting.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. – Continue to tell you to pick him up and no one will pick him up, so Lourdes of the underground will stay underground!  Boom chaka lacka there goes the chief rocka!

Luis Urias – Already gave you my Luis Urias fantasy.  It was written while checking out Djibouti, an East African strip club.

Scooter Gennett – Have we discussed how Scooter might’ve been Wally Pipp’d by Dietrich? Maybe he’ll be traded. I hear the Reds could use *checks notes* everything. I kid, they’re actually not that bad, though some of their trades are suspect. Can they trade Scooter for Matt Kemp?

Cavan Biggio – He’s hit for some power here and there, you know the deal.  On a related note, what the hell is a Cavan?  It sounds like a tapas restaurant.  “Would you like some of our sangria? It’s a Cavan favorite.” *Craig Biggio jots down Cavan on a napkin*  Craig looks up, “Maybe, if we have a daughter we can name her Sangria.”

Scott Kingery – Something I’ve been meaning to say that I’ve said numerous times before.  In the preseason, everyone’s like, “Yo, Grey, handsome as usual, did you see so-and-so is hitting leadoff? Could be huge.”  Then once the season starts, people ignore how important it is where a guy is batting. And that’s me paraphrasing you paraphrasing me! Kingery has been hitting third, that is huge.

Kevin Newman – Member when the Pirates gave minor league deals out to two guys who won a reality show in India just for publicity?  It’s true, not kidding.  So, with that in mind, it would not surprise me if the Pirates were hoping for publicity from Seinfeld fans by having Kevin Kramer and Kevin Newman.

Brendan Rodgers – Just went over my Brendan Rodgers fantasy.  It was written on the back of a can of soup.

Jorge Soler – Is owned in 33% of ESPN leagues.  Has 20 homers.  I will now cackle into a drive-thru car wash while riding a mop dressed to look like a horse.

Bryan Reynolds – You know what’s cool and kind of crazy?  “Skydiving from 35 feet up?”  No, but good guess.  “Wanting to become a straitjacket model?”  No, that’s just crazy.  “Putting shoes on a broom so you can put faint footprints on your ceiling to freak out your significant other?”  No, just let me finish.  It’s cool and crazy that the Pirates have been playing Reynolds and benching Polanco.

Ramon Laureano – April made him look like Nadir Bupkis, but ever since then he’s been a top 50 outfielder.  “So in a ten team league with five OFs, he’s ownable?”  Yes, you math genius.

Zac Gallen – Just gave you my Zac Gallen fantasy.  I wrote it while leading a funeral procession through a drive-thru.  I also gave you my Jordan Yamamoto fantasy, for completists out there.

Adbert Alzolay – Just went over Alzolay this morning.  I bet if you use your scrolly finger you can find it.  I have faith in you!

Zach Plesac – Like I’m sitting on my hands, I’m warming up to the Zach Plesac, but this a Streamonator call.  Like the call it makes to a radio station to request “anything sad.”

Michael Pineda – This also a Streamonator call.  “Maybe play some Peabo Bryson, then stay on the phone to chat?”

Hansel Robles – Has a near-9 K/9, a 1.02 WHIP and is the Angels closer.  I’d go out on a pretty sturdy limb and say he has been more valuable this year than that other Robles in Washington.

Taylor Rogers – Okay, you goofbutts, Taylor Rogers is the closer in Minnesota.  Ya know, the team with the best AL record, i.e., he will get saves.  I before E except in Teixiera, own him!

John Gant – His numbers (7-0, 3 saves, 1.58 ERA) bring up so many questions.  All of his stats read like a reason why you don’t draft middle relievers anywhere but the last rounds, why wins are stupid and how did Ron Gant have a super white kid?

Liam HendriksBlake Treinen looks like he’s headed for an Ineffective List stint or has misinterpreted what a Rolaids Relief Man Award means and is trying to give everyone indigestion.

SELL

Andrew Benintendi – Did I love Benintendi in the preseason?  Yes.  That’s almost as easy to answer as the Buzzfeed IQ test: 1. Who let the dogs out? A) Who B) Who C) Who D) All of the Above.  Unlike the most unanswerable question your significant other always asks you:  Honey, who’s that actor I like?  We’re in sad times times (stutterer!) three.  Benintendi’s numbers are so off that I’m worried about him officially, and wonder if he’s going to have a lost season.  Bear with me (or bare, if you’re a naturist):  His line drives are down; fly balls are up, but he doesn’t hit dongers he hits dinkers; his Ks have skyrocketed; his BABIP is up and he’s still barely hitting .265, and he doesn’t have blazing speed to make up for any of this.  The runs and RBIs in that lineup are nice, but if you can go to the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and find a decent trade for him, I would. I would not sell him to be a fly on the wall to hear a doctor ask someone with amnesia, “Have you ever had amnesia before?”

      and second apparently

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      Damn not sure how that happened – anyway, it pains me to see Benitendi on here as a sell – hopefully this sell jinx works and he gets hot

      Coming out of my draft where I took Benitendi and Story with my first 2 picks, I was feeling amazing!

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        I would’ve felt good about it too, tbh

        • William Hung says:
          (link)

          Not surprised by the Benitendi sell though, it makes sense since he’s been a big reason why my team has slumped over the past few weeks. Dahl was doing worse for a little while there, but now that he’s getting Rs and RBIs (though no HRs) and cutting his K-rate down a bunch, Benitendi has nowhere to hide

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            His #s are not pretty

            • William Hung says:
              (link)

              You are preaching to the choir – i’ve noticed that k-rate spike for awhile and watching his ABs – just don’t know what’s going on. Someone else (I think maybe CoolWhip) mentioned that he is making hard contact but is getting unlucky a little bit so there was some optimism of a turnaround from that respect

              • Grey

                Grey says:
                (link)

                Something’s going on, and I do hope he comes out of it, but it doesn’t look great

              • Coolwhip

                Coolwhip says:
                (link)

                i think you are refering to what i said about dahl. from what i see on beni, he hardhit% is only 35% which is not very high and he’s swinging at more stuff out of the zone and missing more in the zone. it’s like his plate discipline has gone to poop and/or he’s not seeing pitches well.

                • William Hung says:
                  (link)

                  ahhh i mixed the 2 up – so is there any optimism at all for Benintendi outside of his track record?

  3. Luke T says:

    L Urias or Lourdess if you could only have one? Thank you for your time.

    • Grey

      Urias if bench bat that you can sit on

  4. herschel says:

    @Grey: yes! been waiting for the benintendi sill since the bryant sell (who i traded for beintendi). hoping this pulls him out of his funk, but not counting on it…..

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Fingers crossed!

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        I remember you had a comment about Benitendi, that we should wait till he starts to hit .400ish and go on a hot streak – it sounds like you are less convinced now that he’ll ever get hot

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yup, officially concerned… Late in the year for his #s to look like they do

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            Is he secretly dating a Kardashian? Those girls are kryptonite for athletes

    I wish I wish I could trade you McMahon for a bucket of paint in our DC…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I wish you could too!

      • Dave D says:
        (link)

        Speaking of closers, it’s a bit ironic that I drafted Allen and May/Parker for my closers in our DC, and I do have two closers, but they are Robles and Elias. I guess I sort of made up for my bad earlier picks with 40-something round value.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          SAGNOF, basically, but yeah closers are such a crapshoot

  6. Big Daddy Jeats says:
    (link)

    Sup Grey!

    Was encouraged to see SuperMercado as the lede. I picked him up on a shoudler shrug and didn’t know what to think but you’re right, with the way these new helium balls are working he has cool upside.

    I’m in 1st but could use an OF boost (waiting for Dozier and Gallo to come back) and have a plethora of SP that I could deal in a 1 for 1: Montas, Beuhler, Nola, Marquez, Ray, Stro, C. Smith, Jose Q.

    Should I target Kingery, Harper, Soto or Riley? I believe Soto picks his HR numbers up, and I think Kingery has potential for elite production ROS. Are you still a sell on Riley? Sorry for the long question. Thanks Grey!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      SuperMercado!

      Sell on Riley, but depends on price… I don’t mind Kingery since his price will be cheapest, Soto’s my fave from them

      • Big Daddy Jeats says:
        (link)

        Thanks Grey have a good weekend

        • Big Daddy Jeats says:
          (link)

          Ohp! actually sorry one more question – would you go marquez for kingery? Or is that the cutoff?

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Feels high, but I guess fair

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          No problem

          • Big Daddy Jeats says:
            (link)

            MONTAS!!!

            • Grey

              Grey says:

              Well, that explains a jump in velo

  7. Cram It says:
    (link)

    I love the not-so-subtle digs at your audience.

    What’s the buy cutoff? 50% ownership? PICK *clap* UP *clap* KINGERY *clap*. Ridiculous.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha, not RCLs tho… These are ESPN ownership numbers… I should maybe go with RCLs ownership #s

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        Ah, yeah maybe. Something to think about.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, Kingery is 99% RCL owned

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            Phew!

    Any thoughts on Braun or Laureano in a 5 OF league? I need to drop one.

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Braun

  9. knucks says:
    (link)

    Liam Hendriks over Lorenzon then?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Meh, I had to make that call and I held Lorenzen for now

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      Damn. I should have asked before I cut Lorenzon for Hendriks… then came here to ask. At least one of us (or neither) will be right!

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        I think it’s a coin flip

  10. Mike says:
    (link)

    How would you ranks these guys in terms of saves potential?

    – Oberg
    – May
    – Parker
    – Swarzak
    – Gant
    – CMart

    Thanks!!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      None? Gant, Parker

      • mike says:
        (link)

        Yeah, I know I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel. Thanks.

          Grey says:

          No problem

  11. Baldy says:
    (link)

    Have both Mondesi and Story both go on the DL! Yuck! Now a guy is offering trey turner for story straight up? Would that be a wise move to take that trade?

    In a head to head 12 team league.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d take Trea

  12. William Hung says:
    (link)

    Wow according to Trade Analyzer, Benintendi > Machado by $3.70. I’m shocked by that.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      That is shocking

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        If Benintendi does indeed get the good fortune of this sell-jinx, perhaps Machado is next on deck

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Could be!

          • Fogimon says:
            (link)

            Is anyone else looking forward to the Machado suspension as a wake up call? No? No?

            Damn, me neither. He was finally hitting the ball too. Stupid temper tamtrums.

  13. FantasyLand says:

    Is Robles for Kingery a fair deal? Keeper league roto. I’d be sending Robles.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Sounds fair

  14. The Other JC says:

    Are we dropping anyone from this list to grab Alzolay?

    Lucchesi, Yonny, Paddack

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yonny

      • 183414 says:
        (link)

        Disagree Mr. Grey. Chirinos’ body of work this year has been B+. Frito Lay is a bulk M.R. Not a thought of dropping Yonny to bid on a M.R.

        • Dave D says:
          (link)

          Grey discriminates against Yonny because of his 2nd career as a campy new age piano “performer”. I think its actually jealousy. Why else would he be so down on Yonny?

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Yonny’s #s just don’t look great, but he’s pitched well, I can’t argue with that

  15. Fred says:
    (link)

    Trying to sell Voit before Edwin comes in and screws everything up. Don’t have an extra 1B so I was thinking of trying to get Mancini. Fair?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d want more

      • Crime Dog says:
        (link)

        Voit is sitting today, but shouldn’t his PT be safe? I would think Gardner loses out. Voit has played too well to head to the bench but maybe I’m wrong.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Voit is simply sitting one day, don’t think this is beginning of end yet

          • Crime Dog says:
            (link)

            My thoughts too. I think Voit will still see just about as much PT as he has with maybe a few extra days rest ROS than he’s had to date.

        • Boogers and Snotters says:
          (link)

          When does anything make sense like it should in MLB? They approved an exploratory project for the Rays to play half of their games in Montreal.

          • Crime Dog says:
            (link)

            True, wouldn’t surprise me if Voit just ended up being the guy who carries the players bags because he’s huge and can probably get them all in one trip.

            • Boogers and Snotters says:
              (link)

              And…Judge is batting lead off…his first game back…wtf? I do hope well for you though.

          • 183414 says:
            (link)

            Zero chance of that dumbass “idea”.

    Thank you fantasy baseball gods, for accepting our sacrifice of Rich Hill for the MRI results of Trevor Story. We restore our faith in you, oh fantasy gods, and will continue to trust in you until the end of the season.
    Yoga prayer shape session complete.

    1. drop JBJ for Mercado?

    2. I want to take a sip of Alozay, but mid-relief is more rolaids than alcohol. How many innings per week can we expect?

    3. I want to grab Lourdes, but Mercado is my top priority. Would you own Lourdes if it meant dropping McNeil?

      2. Maybe 5

    Also, had no idea Robles throws 100mph (or that he had elite trolling skills – you see that long delayed stretch against Vlad?)

    Very happy about the Story news under the circumstances. Need an MI fill in for the next few weeks until he’s back…how would you rank these options?

    Newman
    Chris Taylor
    McMahon
    Brian Dozier
    Sogard (didn’t realize what he was somehow doing)
    Moran

      Everyone is a sell depending on what you can get.

      Voit is not a drop, if that’s what you were asking. But yeah, his value takes a hit.

        After having pissed away $180 on Rodgers, zero chance I’d take him for his part time appearances until Story returns (guessing 2 weeks) over Lourdes. Agree on Laureano, but batting 3d with multi-position eligibility……no brainer.

    I know E. Rosario goes into funks and is streaky. But, his OBP and SLG is close to 60-70 points less at this same time last year. Average at this time last year was .320; 3 more HR; a few more RBI and a few less runs. It’s that .297 OBP that sticks out to me along with the low average.

    What order would you take Springer, E. Rosario and Hoskins for counting stats ROS?

    I might be able to swing a trade of Rosario or Hoskins with Gallen for Springer. Springer’s xStats are xGreat.

    Here’s my lineup:

    C Sanchez
    1B Bell
    2B Baez
    3B Rendon
    SS Gurriel Jr.
    OF Yelich
    OF Acuna
    OF Rosario
    UTIL Hoskins
    UTIL Yordan

    I picked up Hansel for $2 (out of $100 FAAB budget) the same week someone else paid $13 for Buttrey. Heh. It has been surprisingly pleasurable to own him.

    With both Ohtani and Upton back, the Angels should win a good amount of games going forward, so Hansel’s save rate may get even better … and at .500, the Angels are probably competitive enough not to be sellers but not strong enough to be buyers, so there is a good chance he stays put without some ace closer coming in a trade to take his job.

    (I also picked up Neris for $3 around the same time as I picked up Hansel, so my bullpen is doing very nicely, thank you very much.)

        Just completely vague about recovery time. 2-3 weeks, if forced to guess, sound about right ? I’d be more interested in Simmons (as well as Lourdes), but for the fact he was limping last week. Probably also Newman, as I have no expectation that Rodgers will be getting regular a.b.’s after Story returns. I think the Rockies have already chosen to go with McMahon over Rodgers, which McMahon has justified.

    DL Inciarte

    SP: Ryu, Eflin, Mikolas, Richards, Musgrove, Matz, Alzolay
    RP: Yates, Kimbrel, Jackson, Stripling, Newcomb

    A) I might need to stream. I’d pick up Enyel DLS vs MIA. However, I really don’t have anyone on my roster I want to drop. The best I can think of is put Newcomb in my DL spot and drop Inciarte(current DL) or drop Newcomb

    B) If I were to stream Enyel, I’d drop him for a batter to fill in for Hampson’s spot. Please rank the following possibilities. Puello, Iglesias, Garlick, Margot.

    C) Thoughts on what happens to Adams when Z-Man comes back? Platoon or starts 2-3 times per 7 games? Would you choose the #2 guy from above over him?

    D) I went ballsy this week with my pitching strategy this week in my H2H matchup. The team I’m facing this week had deGrom, E. Hernandez, and Flaherty on Monday, while I only had Mikolas. After seeing how well his guys pitched, I decided to try and only go for ratios since I had some tough matchups. I am at 15 IP with Ryu and Mikolas (and possibly Enyel) left to pitch. We both have 2 Ws and I am up 2-1 S. My ERA/WHIP is 0.60/0.87 and his is 1.64/0.70 over 33 IP. He also has the advantage as deGrom’s start doesn’t come till Sunday and he can see how Ryu does Saturday before making a decision. Of course, I have Mikolas as the late game and can see how deGrom does before.

        Thanks for the reply!

        Inciarte seems likely to be on the IL for a while, so Newcomb/Stripling would be the one to drop if I were to pick up Iglesias. I have a pretty decent staff for H2H the rest of the way, but either could see some starts as well.

    Hypothetical: 12 team NFBC you got a team in 7th place that seems kind of meh. Your buy in was $375. Someone offers to buy your team and take it over. Do you listen? What’s the range of prices you would be willing to listen to?

                      I was curious if there’s the possibility of creating a secondary market for teams. I bet there are people willing to sell low on teams that could be coached into the $.

                      Interesting… so you’re saying an eBay of teams…. I actually like that idea… you look and decide how much market would spend on a team… like a 1st place team with a bunch of current injuries might be worth $750 vs $900…. I like it!

                    • OaktownSteve says:
                      (link)

                      Exactly. You could have flipping houses kind of thing where you could buy a team, coach it up and resell it at a profit a month later. Marketplaces are fun.

    Grey, trade opinion in a H2H points keeper league. Would you trade Arenado for Vlad and Tatis? Arenado couldn’t be kept, and I would be able to keep Vlad in the 12th and Tatis in the 15th. I might have to add Framber Valdez to get the deal done. Which side do you prefer?

        Gotta one spot for OF tonight to fill in H2H. Conforto has already played, and Betts is in. That leaves Dahl,Pederson,Seoul Train and One Eyed Willie Calhoun. I would love to play both those Ranger bats against Reynaldo Lopez but I’ll probably just bench Choo or Calhoun. Leaning benching Calhoun since walks,OBP count along with the outside chance he will steal a base. Which OF would you bench?

    Friday evening. Upstairs at my computer. Baseball all day long. Wanted to tweak you last week on leaving Buehler out of your take on the 2 days preceding. I own him on my Super team, and you being someone I read and enjoy, though I’ll be the 1st to give you my different take, but since you do such a great job making fantasy baseball always amusing, I stayed quiet.
    Until tonight. This is who I thought he was when he was the 1st starter I drafted @#28, the 10th starter taken. My options were Carrasco, Thor, Corbin…..
    You mentioned on several occasions that you were concerned he was hurt. I think his 1st month of the year was more like spring training for him. You watch the phenom pitch, and you, like me, saw him last year when he showed how good he was. He’s better now.
    Buehler, Yelich, and Mondesi are leading my team to a great 1/2, despite losing Andujar, Taillon, and don’t say a word, buying Kikuchi last sunday. Yes, I read what you said. Very humbling. Still, the team has digested that game, but there’s another game on sunday, Wish there wasn’t.

    1B Comparison

    Player A – 38 / 15 /49 / .273 / Barrel 10% / Exit Velo 89.2 / xBA .228 / xSLG .410 / Hard 38.9

    Player B – 33 / 16 / 48 / .279 / Barrel 15.2% / Exit Velo 90.6 / xBA .286 / xSLG .550 / Hard 45.1

    Player A is Hoskins and player B is Cron. i wouldn’t replace Hoskins with Cron, but I think Cron is an under appreciated producing 1B.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        you still like him over Senzel ROS? They seem to be playing at about the same level right now. Need to make a choice fairly soon since I got both Mondesi and Story taking up bench spots in my shallow league. I plan on dropping one to either get a committee closer or streaming spot.

        My batters right now are:

        C- Contreras
        1B- Bellinger
        2B- Lourdes Jr.
        3B- Senzel/Kingery
        SS- Lindor
        OF- Benintendi, Dahl, Betts
        UTIL- Yordan
        B- Story, Mondesi, Kingery/Senzel

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I think Kingery is a 17/25 guy and Senzel isn’t… Kingery’s lineup is better too

  117. First Time Caller says:

    Pagan, Lugo or Alzolay for holds. Ratios matter.

          Milone, neither really

  124. William Hung says:
    (link)

    On the pitching front, my team consists of the following:

    SPs: Lynn, Marquez, Gallen, Lester, Flaherty
    SAGNOF: Neris, Holland, Strop, Alvarado, Hendriks
    DL- Glasnow

    clearly speculating based on your advice with Hendriks…

    As a follow up with Senzel, I am thinking of dropping him & Strop for the bottom-tier SVs like Romo/Parker/Givens, then streaming out of Lester’s spot. In true SAGNOF form, regardless of how shitty their ratios are, SVs are SVs right? I just want to confirm Romo and Givens would be top 2 targets.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Romo, Givens… Givens is not good

      • William Hung says:

    1. If Hicks is out for any length of time, who gets saves in St Louis?

    2. Gotta love blisters. Too bad, Berrios was cruising. Not sure why Rogers is asked to close multiple innings back2-back games. Might be I am slightly pissed LOL but this is why I dropped Parker and May. Can’t count on anything resembling stability here.

    3. Brett at home v Rays. Bot not a fan but seems kinda juicy. What say you?

    4. I started Quintana too so you are not alone.

    I agree that this is probably going to be a lost year for Benintendi. But I have him in three leagues, a dynasty, and two keeper leagues. No way am I selling him. Long term, he’s still a strong investment. Pitchers have obviously adjusted to him. He’ll adjust back, in time.

    1. Pick 3: Olson, Mazara, Mercado, Conforto, Bobby Bradley

    3. where would Luis Urias fall into those rankings
    4. Pick 2: Matz, Gibson, Eduardo Rodriguez
    5. Do you like any of these guys over the two guys you chose from question 4, or hold? Julio Urias, Yamamoto, Alzolay, Skaggs

    Current Relievers: Chapman, Jansen, Kimbrel, Pressly, C-Mart

    I made a trade where I sent away leclerc, so I can pick up a player debating between a starter or a reliever who may help in ratios and maybe get some holds/saves. Currently in last in ERA: How would you rank these players: Heaney, Julio Urias, Stripling

    Would love to see some buy-low insight on Snell. No idea how you manage to respond to all of these posts.

    Is Willie Calhoun a hold?

    My OF is not the problem (Betts,Dahl,Conforto,Choo,Pederson)
    But 2B is a black hole. Thinking of tossing Calhoun to stash Hiuara.

    Hate to do it since I love the upside of old One Eyed Willlie playing half those games in Arlington, but I can see the writing on the wall once Gallo and Pence are back. Their already peddling Danny Santana and Deshields out there as is.

    Better bench/stash bat…Calhoun or Hiura?

    Rodgers was terrible in his return. Hampson comes back today and is 2-5 with a SB. Should I switch to Hampson at SS as I wait for Story and/or Mondesi to return? Other SS options include Sogard or Iglesias. Rough, I know, it’s a 15-team league and I lost both my awesome SS options in the same week…

    Thanks for the advice!

    Rizzo, Boyd, Bobby Bradley for Scherzer, aroldis Chapman and villar ? I need the pitching help and desperate for steals. It’s a 5×5 keeper league. I also have a log jam with freeman, Hoskins, goldy and Rizzo for 3 starting slots next year so I think I could handle losing Rizzo. I tried to Offer goldy but he wants Rizzo from me. What are your thoughts? Thanks!
