Miles Mikolas (8 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 1 walk, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.62) or Paul Goldschmidt (6-for-8, 4 runs, 8 RBIs, and his 14th, 15th and 16th homer)? Which one do I talk about first?! What’s on 2nd? I don’t know. Third base! Au Shizz went Au Shizz three times in yesterday’s doubleheader. He’s hitting .349 on the year. He’s challenging Aaron Judge for the top of the Player Rater–Okay, not Judge, but the top 5? Yes, siree, Bob. “I’m sorry, Grey, I need more info on what Bob you want to call.” Siree! Not Siri! “Chillax, phonedaddy.” Shut up, Siri! Au Shizz is capping one of the best decades we’ve seen in baseball over the last ten years. As for Miles Mikolas, I literally turned on his no-hit bid as the Calm Itchell double was landing in center. Hey, am I starring in the fictional version of The Jinx as the young, and more handsome Robert Durst? “Kill them all…Why did I say that? Maybe I can say I was saying my favorite Metallica album?” While Mikolas isn’t quite this good — 7 .2 K/9, 1.8 BB/9, 3.72 xFIP — he’s capable of one of those 3.00-ish ERA seasons, or better, as he’s done once in his career already. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Jack Flaherty – Will start on Wednesday vs. the Pirates. He’s thrown seven innings this year in the minors, so color me a bit perplexed. The only reason I can see this happening is if the Cards think he’s 100% or less than 10% but he doesn’t realize it, and they want him to see for himself. The Cards are like, “Hey, you wanna smoke cigarettes? Fine, go into that closet and finish this pack.”

Steven Matz – Had his second anti-inflammatory injection in his shoulder. Next one is free.

Giovanny Gallegos – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 2.92, as he got his 9th save, as Ryan Helsley (2/3 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 0.36) set him up. Long, rueful sigh. I think there might be something to a guy named Marmol not knowing what to do in the 9th.

Matthew Liberatore – 5 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.00. Solid spot start, but, let me stress one more time, “spot.”

Brendan Donovan – 5-for-9, 4 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .328. Cards *clapping hand emoji* create *clapping hand emoji* players.

Jason Delay – 0-for-2 as he made his major league debut. To really get the message through to Oneil Cruz, the Pirates are setting up the double play of Service, Time to Delay.

Ozzie Albies – Was placed on the 60-day IL. I knew it was coming, but to read it gave me a little heart attack all over again, so I thought I’d pass that heart palpitation on to you. Orlando Arcia (2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) will fill-in and he homered (2nd) in Albies’s stead. That blessed stead!

Travis d’Arnaud – 3-for-5, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 8th homer, and 2nd in as many games. If it feels like deja vu, it’s not a glitch in the Matrix. Also, hitting homers two games in a row were his teammates, hot schmotato, Michael Harris II (3-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer); Dansby Swanson (1-for-4 and his 9th homer) and Marcell Ozuna (2-for-4, 12th homer). Mean’s while, I have Acuña, Olson and Albies. Things are great, thanks!

Max Fried – 5 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.90. Kinda of a shizz start vs. a shizzy team, but at least he got thru enough for the win. Do you hear that, Ian Anderson?!

Jacob deGrom – Threw a 30-pitch bullpen session. So, next step is a handful of rehab starts, figure six, that takes three to four weeks, depending on how long it takes to stretch him out. That takes us to July 24th for his return date, and when he can re-injure himself in a MLB game.

Chris Bassitt – 8 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.89. After a rough month, it’s nice to see Bassitt do what he’s supposed to do. Now do that again for another 3 months and we good.

Jesus Aguilar – 2-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 9th homer, and third homer on the road trip, and when Jesus gets hot, pitchers will have hell to pay.

Avisail Garcia – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer. I guess his hand is feeling okay. Must’ve been all that tender-loving-care from Prince Fielder’s wife.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 13th homer. Maybe it’s the team but he reminds me of a young Hanley. Jazz says he grew up trying to emulate him too. *checks Jazz’s service time* Jazz should be able to play for the Red Sox too, in roughly 26 months.

Rhys Hoskins – 4-for-5, 6 RBIs and his 12th and 13th homer. He’s hitting near-.350 in the last two weeks, and has eleven homers in the last month. Rhysus saves! Unlike…

Seranthony Dominguez – 2/3 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 1.88, who entered the 7th inning. I’ve been saying it’s Hand’s job *makes jerk-off motion* if Knebel can’t throw, but I’m also just guessing. For what it’s Cronenworth, Corey Knebel (0 IP, 3 unearned) blew his 4th save, and didn’t look like he could, ya know, throw.

Liam Hendriks – Hit the IL with a forearm strain. Grimacing emoji in a hospital bed being attended to by John Lithgow who is dressed as a nurse from The World According to Garp. Not great news, guys and five lady readers! Well, if Liam’s dead for the year, I know who can bury him. If Liam is throwing back on the bench like a Wonderwall, then Graveman could be a top five closer. Yes, grab Kendall Graveman in all leagues.

Dylan Cease – 5 IP, 0 ER (1 unearned run), 8 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.91. Is it me (it’s not me) or does Cease give up more unearned runs than anyone?

Gerrit Cole – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.33. He was even able to limit the damage by Ji-Man Choi (1-for-4). Ya know, Choi’s a Chevy Volt, because he’s a Cole killer.

Corey Kluber – 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.50. You know what I’m gonna say: Streamonator.

J.D. Martinez – 1-for-4 and his 8th homer, hitting .345. Hmm, 345 upside down on a calculator is SHE and this is Just Dong?! Hmm, hmm, HMM! ACKSUALLY, I was looking at the Player Rater yesterday, and Just Dong is doing more than Just Dong’ing. He’s a top 50 player.

Rafael Devers – 1-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 15th homer, hitting .332. I love Red Sox hitters. They’re like the only team left that hits for average. Guess it doesn’t hurt there’s a giant wall to doink off of that’s 175 feet away.

Nick Pivetta – 8 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.50. I remember in the preseason I said something like, “Everyone wanted Pivetta for years, then he actually is good last year and no one wants him this year. I don’t get it.” And that’s me paraphrasing me!

Stephen Vogt – 1-for-1 and his 3rd homer, and 2nd homer in the last three games. Is it time to *pinkie to mouth* rock the Vogt?

Fernando Tatis Jr. – CT scan didn’t show level of healing that would allow him to swing a bat. Excuse me, I’m gonna go hitchhike to hell to tell off the devil, see ya soon!

Luke Voit – 2-for-6, 2 runs, 5 RBIs and his 7th homer, and his 2nd homer in three games. Hot schmotato alert!

Willson Contreras – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 11th and 12th homer. As he trotted around the bases, he mimed, “Call me,” and held a sign with his agent’s number.

Sean Manaea – 4 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.95. The Wrigley wind was blowing out, and that info did me no good in weekly and deep leagues. Lowercase yay.

Tyler Mahle – 9 IP, 0 ER, 3 hits, zero walks, 12 Ks, ERA at 4.46, as he threw 119 pitches. Not sure why he was sent out there for so many pitches, maybe Dumb Bell isn’t so dumb after all, but that would make his name hard to explain. I had Mikolas, Mahle and Bassitt going in so many leagues. Daddy likes positive regression.

Kris Bubic – 5 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 8.36. Fun fact! He calls the strike zone, the Bubic region.

Logan Webb – 7 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.43 in 112 pitches. For one random night in June, managers forgot to take their pitchers out.

Joe Ryan – 4 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 2.81, as he was activated from the IL. That was almost as bad as Ben Affleck’s Jack Ryan.

Logan Gilbert – 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA 2.22. Yes, you have to draft Scherzer, deGrom, Cole, Burnes, Woodruff, or one of those top guys. No other way to win!

Ty France – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .322. Why, my good man, that’s a French fly!

Nathaniel Lowe – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, 2nd homer in five games, and I’ve already put him in this week’s Buy column that will be up on the Patreon later today, and Friday on the site.

Dane Dunning – 6 IP, 0 ER, 2 hits, 4 BBs, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.04. Streamonator loves his next start, which means LET’S DO THIS! Sorry, I yelled.

Charlie Blackmon – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer. Chazz Noir riding side saddle around the bases on a Boston Robotics dog, waving and explaining to the crowd, “Dick Monfort bought it for me out of SkyMall.”

Tony Gonsolin – 6 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 2 walks, 6 Ks, ERA at 1.42. He must be wearing some serious mismatched outfits to keep the Regression Fairies away. Gonsolin’s gotta give up like 19 runs in 1/3 IP to even come close to the amount of regression he’s missing.

Noah Syndergaard – 4 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.53. Syndergaard comes off like a guy who would make fun of someone who was pulled at 82 pitches in only 4 2/3 IP. Check out the mirror, bro.

Anthony Rendon – Exited last night’s game because he re-aggravated the right wrist injury that he just returned from, after missing a couple of weeks. Is Anthony Rendon made of glass? Coming up after the break our experts weigh in!

Matt Chapman – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, and as I type this all I can see in my peripheral vision is Gabriel Moreno had three hits. I’m going to make some rookie nookie mistakes, aren’t I?

Yusei Kikuchi – 4 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.80. Welp, we’ve reached the point where even if the Streamonator likes him, I can’t start him.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – Will have elbow surgery, and miss the rest of the season. Yu? Good. Ryu? Not good. Meandyou? We’re okay, but I got my eye on you.

Austin Hays – 1-for-5 and his 8th homer, hitting .291. He’s hitting sixty-three points higher than Juan Soto. I will now cackle until I’m taken away in a straitjacket.

Ryan Mountcastle – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .262. The Baltimore Baseball Club, the BBC, will now be airing the next episode of Mountcastle without commercials. Brought to you by Sainsbury’s. We’re here for your groceries, even though you don’t know how to cook.

Not sure if you’ve noticed him lately. You ragged on him quite a bit early in the season. But Jake Cronenworth has been scorching hot lately. Batting .357 his last 15 games with three HR, 21 RBIs and 13 runs scored. He’s got a pair of doubles and a couple of RBIs tonight. I think it’s time to put him in your BUY column!

Carry on!

Real baseball is so difficult when failing 7 out of 10 at bats could get you in the HOF. Pretend baseball starting to look the same. I had the opportunity a few weeks back to get Drury for free – but the advice/comments were to forget him. All he has done since then is hit .350 with five home runs. Nah, I don’t need that.

have you looked at b.drury’s pre-2023 career? that’s why nobody is saying “pick up that guy”. he was so bad i had him on a 4 year min price rookie contract in a 30 teamer, he was dropped only after that contract ran out, and i STILL got him in waivers during the 1st or 2nd weekly waiver period. been my best hitter on that team entirely. but i wouldn’t expect it to continue and if i was the one answering “drury or players x, y, z…” if players x,y,z had a track record of being useful MLB’ers i’d have said one/more of those.

everybody had the chance at getting drury for free.

I can pick up Bryant since he is on the IL. I would have to drop someone to pick anyone else up… Christian Walker or Sandoval are the only real drop options for me.

-Do you think any are worth pursuing (assuming no real needs)?

-How much FAB would you be willing to use for Bryant out of $100 (I have 93 left)?

agreed, other teams are like this but the fact that they play most of their games later than most other teams makes it seem a good bit worse, as almost all other players we own we have to make lineup decisions on before LAA put out their lineups. it’ll be a very gross day when say ohtani gets some DTD thing that he misses like half the games but we won’t know which half. it’ll come at some point too.

10 TM NL-Only H2H

Hi Grey,

Currently I am at 32 IP with a 1.19 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. I do need to keep my ERA and WHIP low as the team I’m playing has Starts from Burnes, T. Anderson, Bassitt, Z and K Thompson, and Suarez.

Remaining SPs for me are Lauer, Greene, Gray, Alcantara, and possibly Cobb.

The corresponding move would be dropping Brubaker, but I can pick him back up off of waivers for his next start vs. CHC. I may have to stream Sat/Sun, so dropping Brubaker now would ensure I could get him back by his next start against CHC.

Which of the following streaming options would you go with, if any? I’ve put them in order of what I was thinking of doing.

A) Pick up Andre Pallante (Slated as long RP for today) for a possible W today since Flaherty could be limited to 65 – 75 pitches, and might not make it through 5. Contreras is starting for PIT, so it’s also possible that STL doesn’t have a lead if Flaherty comes out.

B) David Peterson vs. MIL (Burnes), but he might not go 5 innings. Which sounds better?

C) Kilian vs. Padres (SON -18.7)

I appreciate your Thoughts.

Hey Grey,

So is Knebel a clear drop in a 12-teamer? I’ve put up with his inefficacy a bit given his experience and also since he has SP/RP eligibility allowing me to have an extra reliever in play. Am I trying to hold him hoping he can right the ship? Feels like one of those rip the bandaid off and lower my stress levels situations, but I just don’t want to regret it if he improves drastically. Thanks!

Good afternoon,

Lose Edward Cabrera now or worth waiting for a little more information?

Marlins placed RHP Edward Cabrera on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to June 13, with right elbow tendinitis.
Advice: Oh dear. Cabrera was hit hard in his start against the Astros on Sunday, and it appears that might have at least somewhat been due to injury. He’ll be out at least a couple of weeks, but elbow issues often are not injuries that see a short stint on the injured list. Cabrera’s talent is unquestionable, but the injury history is concerning. 

Thanks!!

With Pena hitting the IL, need to pick up a MI for my RCL league but not sure who to drop given that I don’t even have a bench bat and really don’t see a clear drop among my pitchers. I do have 4 relievers but it is noteworthy that I am in the bottom half in saves. Here my my current roster…

C Melendez 1B Freeman 2B Miranda SS Adames 3B Donaldson CI Votto MI Pena OF Buxton OF Mullins OF Ward OF Brown (streamer) OF McCutchen (streamer) UTL Ohtani

Thanks!!!

Please note that it’s a keeper league and round values to give up next year as follows:

Juan Soto (3rd round), Logan Gilbert (9th), Joe Ryan (17th), and Harrison Bader (24th)

OR

Luis Robert (Lou-Bob) (6th), McClanahan (ahanahanahanahan) (8th), Manny Machado (1st…probably wouldn’t be kept)

Good Afternoon (damn it’s hot out, not much good, but hot),
H2H points league player for Week 11, June 20-26 only,
N Lowe. A Hayes, L. Arraez, K Farmer, J Burger, A.Duvall? I gave Votto the 2nd time boot. No more. Not going to invite him back to my backyard cookout.
Position doesn’t matter. I can stick with Ohtani as DH or boring DJ LeMahieu.
Also, have Walker Buehler on IL but not in a IL spot. I highly doubt he will be back no matter what Dave Roberts claims. I can hold Buehler for now but he is taking up a roster spot.
Thank you for your advice.

One more thing, Gleyber Torres got dropped, worth at pickup? Not impressed thus far.

Hey to the Heyyyyy!

Here’s a silly question. I have Sir Anthony and Diego Castillo, and I’m pretty desperate to rebuild my closer crew. I’ve been holding Giles (on rehab now) for security in SEA, but wonder now if I should grab Hand instead. Or ditch my last bench bay and roster all of them for a few days.

Lurrrrrrrrves!

You, Sir Grey, are the man.

PS- “Snortive Snicks” wonders if he’s the only paranoid who worries that his league opponents will uncover his Razzball commenter identity and get the inside scoop on his moves. Maybe that’s because I’m devious and try to figure out if any of the commenters are my own opponents.

Much appreciated !

One last thing, in terms of the Jazz deal, I’d be losing Hayes/Merrifield/Swanson, do you think I’d be able to make up lost SBs on the wire? Projections still like Whit for 10+, and Swanson/Hayes around 10

Currently in 2nd place for SBs, with 3 teams close to me. FA’s rabbits include Hoerner, A Rosario, Wong. Do have Ohtani and Tucker doing the heavy lifting though

Might have to cut Devers out the deal so I can keep Hayes’ 10.

Could be tight …

So with the Pena to IL news and Polanco also nursing a ding, maybe I should grab a SS eligible. Who’s your top from Luis Garcia (was he Rocky III?) and Ezequiel “Great Vengeance and Furious Anger” Duran? Leaning Duran (great album). And assuming I take one of these, Donovan or Miranda in other move?

Grey,

Giolito ranked 118 on Player Rater for SP! But 9th on ros projections. Do you have faith in him, or should I start trying to trade him or just drop him for a hotter pitcher?

I’m sitting holding Woodruff, Stroman and Clevinger in DL slots. There’s not much on the wire available in terms of quality starting pitchers (guys like DeSclafani and CIvale are out there, etc). Worth holding on to Woodruff, Stroman and Clevinger?

Great stuff as always, Grey. Quick trade question:

In a 12-team points league, looking at a proposal of his Yaz for my C. Javier.

My current OF: Teoscar, Robert, Soto, Walsh, Joe
My current SPs: Nola, Gausman, Manaea, Bassitt, Gonsolin, Baz, Stripling, Javier.

With Teoscar in a funk I’d like to get a better bat than Joe in there as my fifth OF. Thoughts?
