*blows dust off cover to the book, “Raimel Tapia, Fantasy Sleeper”* Just found this book on a shelf in this Colorado-area bookstore.  “I think this is yours.”  The bookstore owner holds up a copy of, “Josh Rutledge’s Fantasy Sleeper.”  Haha, no, that’s not mine.  “It says “Property of Grey Albright.”  Can I just read from one of your other books in peace without paying for it?  No wonder bookstores are all going out of business, you don’t leave your customers alone!  Any hoo, as I was saying about Raimel Tapia, he was a 2015 Pick-to-Click, a 2016 Gotz-to-Getz-Him, a 2017 This-is-the-Year and a 2018 Absolute-Must-Own for a reason.  He has 15-homer power and 25-steal speed who shouldn’t hurt you in average (think .270).  The problem for so long has been the Rockies’ inability to kowtow to fantasy owners and play the sexy guys.  Not unrelated, Garrett Hampson is due for everyday playing time in 2023.  However, something interesting has happened recently — interesting is subjective but if you’re reading this I assume it applies — Ian Desmond has been getting benched regularly.  Finally!  If Tapia gets 5+ starts a week, he is a Pick-to-Click-Gotz-to-Getz-Him-This-is-the-Year-Absolute-Must-Own in all leagues.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Christian Vazquez – He has 4 homers and is hitting .222.  Man, that doesn’t sound good, right?  Wrong!  Tell ’em, Dark Helmet:  You fell for the oldest trick in the book, mon.  Vazquez is a top 7 catcher on our Player Rater.

Christian Walker – *looks in mirror, adjusts collar, throws up hands and runs out to thousands of cheering people in a mega-church*  IT’S BUY CHRISTIAN TIME!!!  Vazquez?  Buy!  Walker?  Buy!  Yelich?  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!  Arroyo?  Heaven help you if your league is that deep.

Hunter Dozier – When someone said you should grab some No-Doz, they didn’t mean no Dozier, they were commenting on your slow reaction time.

Ryan McMahon – I will say this for 1st basemen. There’s not a ton of top ones, but there’s a ton of bottom ones.  Sounds like a recipe for disaster in a gay bar.

Rowdy Tellez – No, I’m not just here for the Rowdy Tellez Pit when he smashes a coconut on Superfly Justin Smoak’s head, but that would be cool.

Eric Thames – You can’t be excited for Thames without being a little anxious about Aguilar.  They go hand and hand likes p’s and poops.  I am officially concerned on Aguilar and I’m backing him up with Thames everywhere.  Just in case.  Or for our Spanish speakers, just Nicasio.

Hernan Perez – Jokes and giggles and my entire brand aside, if Perez is getting playing time, he could be a very valuable, sneaky pickup with a little pop and speed.

Renato Nunez – Not sure where his power is coming from, said no one because he hit 32 homers in his last full year of the minors.

Michael Chavis – I’ll admit to be a little less excited about Chavis than maybe some, but if he’s playing 2nd (or anywhere), he could be as valuable as, say, Devers.  I said could, I didn’t say he definitely will.

Cole Tucker – Already gave you my Cole Tucker fantasy.  It was dictated to Siri from a Speak N Spell to make my life easier.

Carter Kieboom – Just gave you my Carter Kieboom fantasy.  Like, literally, just just.

Luis Rengifo – Just gave you my Luis Rengifo fantasy too.  Yo, Grey working overtime or something?

Gregory Polanco – Already gave you my Gregory Polanco fantasy.  It was written while belatedly celebrating Talk Like A Pirate Day.

Dwight Smith Jr. – I have Iffitis with DSJ (and Yandy, Giants starters, Montas, Soroka and a lot of players, tee bee aitch).  Iffitis is an affliction where I tell you to pick him up in the written text of the post, then you ask if you should grab him in the comments, and I’m not nearly as confident.

Josh Reddick – Likely just a hot schmotato but what’s hotter than a Reddick?  Branding a bull on their balls?  “My mountain oy….sters!”  That’s a Yiddish bull.

Luke Weaver – Loved Weaver going into last year, but he underperformed in every way.  Maybe it was just an off-year, **it happens.  I know it would be weird for the Diamondbacks to get a good side of a trade, or any side, I guess, but Weaver’s peripherals (10.3 K/9, 2 BB/9, 3.14 xFIP) are exceptional.

Mike Leake – This is a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to My Pillow Headquarters to see if it can get a pillow with a face printed on it to keep it company.  Streamonator so lonely!

Erik Swanson – I like Swanson, but this is also a Streamonator call.   “Okay, but if it’s My Pillow, then what I want My Pillow to have is a face.”

Ty Buttrey – Could’ve also mentioned Hansel Robles here and I just did by process of unelimination. (Grey’s got new words.)

Hector Neris – Gabe Kapler loves Hector Neris.  Why?  Ask Gabe Kapler!  If you can get Kapler to sit still for a second, he’s like a hummingbird, that guy.

Ryan Brasier – This is the Red Sox.  You’re not picking up their closer?  Seriously?

Blake Parker – Don’t understand the hesitation here.  Parker was solid last year; he is the Twins closer; what am I missing?  Don’t answer, just shake your head in frustration that Parker’s only owned in 22% of leagues.

Shawn Kelley – I just spent 20 minutes in my bedroom, sweating and screaming, “Vlad, the Mini Impaler!” until Cougs walked in and asked if I was okay.  Of course, I’m okay, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is coming up and I’m crazy.  Someone who doesn’t elicit that reaction in me is Shawn Kelley, but he might get some looks if Leclerc is Lebroke.

SELL

Daniel Murphy – There’s some Daniel Murphy truthers out there, a Murther, if you will.  I am not one of them.  You can find some Murthers who think Murphy is a top 40 bat.  I do not.  You can usually spot these Murthers because they think they know better than you.  If they say things like, “I’ll take steady production of Murphy over your sexy Pete Alonso,” then they might be a Murther.  Another characteristic of a Murther is they’re unrealistically down on upside.  I’m not saying trade Murphy for two concert tickets to see a Beethoven symphony performed by a St. Bernard (though, that might be cool), but I’d go to our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and find a deal sending away Murphy.

        Polanco, but needs matter

          full team is:

          3B- Shaw

          I don’t NEED a bench bat, but it’d be good to stash one similar to what I did with Pete Alonso

              On the pitching side:
              Fried, Lucchesi, Marquez, Peacock, Glasnow, Matz, Flaherty

              Do I drop Lucchesi for Weaver for tomorrow’s start v. Cubs?

        The only good thing about it is I will have a chance to watch this messy affair since its a road game on a Friday night, that is, if I don’t get disgusted by the third inning and switch back to the likely more interesting Padres vs Nationals game in DC.

      Fowler for Rengifo

    Is Lucchesi a drop to pick up Soroka for next week?

    Lucchesi vs LAD, Soroka vs SD and @Mia. Streamonator loves Soroka for next week.

    Are we thinking that Lucchesi is a streamer in a 12 Team?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds fine to stream Soroka

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        I think about dropping Lucchesi, but I see that 3 FIP / xFIP and think it’s just bad luck and that gets reinforced after your statements this week on the podcast and seeing him as a hold – I wanna believe this member of the “babylon” tier can start rolling soon (hopefully starting with @ WAS)

          This matchup seems tough but I still believe

          • William Hung says:

            yeah def sitting him this time around. I have more confidence in Matz at home v. Brewers than Lucchesi on the road against the Nats

    5×5 OBP. 12 team.

    Would you send Choo or Murphy to get Glasnow? Which one if so?

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      Either one if it works. More likely that they would accept the Murphy deal than Choo. ANd Murphy is literally listed as a Sell in this post.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Either, but Choo won’t get him

  7. Matty says:

    I’m looking forward to the 2022 Garrett Hampson sleeper post. The Rockies AAA team must be some kind of AAA dynasty. The other teams are of course self-aware enough to know that the AAA world series isn’t the real prize.

    Are folks moving on from Profar yet? Hosmer? Mazara?

    Have a great weekend.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      The Rockies are that guy in your dynasty league who still hasn’t activated Arenado — Hosmer and Profar are not good, but I’m holding Profar

      • Matty says:
        (link)

        But when they do activate Arenado, that salary will seem like such a good deal.

        That guy in our league is in the midst of a protracted message board fight about how he doesn’t regret trading Yelich last pre-season for a 2018 minor league pick, because “I really wanted Mackenzie Gore” (Who? Is that a professional softball player?)

    I know you mentioned that Pablo Lopez has intrigued you so far, but wondering if you’ve moved into full on Buy at this point?

    I’m thinking aboout dropping Samardjiza for him in my QS league?

    Nice article Grey?

    12 team 6×6 (OBP+QS), could you rank the following for ROS?

    Eduardo Escobar
    Tapia
    Jorge Polanco
    Nunez

    Starting lineup is pretty strong after using the Grey top 500, but trying not to miss out on early season breakouts. I have Billy Hamilton on my bench for speed and lots of power so no specific needs.

      Haha, that ? was supposed to be a ! at the beginning of the post. ..

        I made a pointed decision not to play the Rockies shuffle game this year … I just decided I was out on Rockies players. I gotta say, I have been finding it totes adorbs to see Grey answer all the yearning Rodgers, McMahon, Tapia, Desmond, Dahl, and Hampson questions free of any need to pay any attention to the fantasy-relevant content. It is good for the soul – I highly recommend it.

    Time to drop Miggy (bench bat) for Tapia? Feel like there’s little to no downside now that Miggy doesn’t hit for power. Agree?

        (link)

        For Real ? Just say it out loud and you’ll change your mind. 1 hot week (and Miggy’s had a few hundred of those), and you’ll never consider that again. I drafted him in 3 of my 1st 4 drafts because he fell to me, and yes, zero home runs after 3 1/2 weeks was disappointing…..but it was 3 1/2 weeks,

    • c says:
      (link)

      Miggy’s about to get hot. It’s not even May 1 and he’s STILL Miggy. Will he hit 40? No. But he’s going to starting feeling better and start hitting for more power. Last night he crushed one.

      • 183414 says:
        (link)

        You’d drop Miggy, playing every day, and not Aguilar, who certainly won’t be playing every day, likely for the rest of the season. Nothing personal. I’ll happily be dropping Aguilar this week, if I don’t blank on my bids. I won’t be dropping Miggy. I’ll be keeping my eyes open in case he’s dropped in any of my other 4 draft leagues.

      I forgot to mention our league is OBP instead of AVG. and I would favor power over speed. If you don’t see O’Neil getting playing time for a while (he still needs to be activated from IL, but that could be soon), then the easy answer is Hernan.

    rendon’s finally back everybody. should’ve just DL’d this mother, he’d have missed a whole what 3 extra days and probably been less likely to have to not play again while we COULD’VE added somebody else for 5 full damn days. this’ll look especially prescient if suddenly he has to come out again in the next 3 days from “soreness” or something like that. or jebus forbid gets hit in that area again in the next few days.

        also, mostsuckass, who’s basically been out with a near identical (but actually potentially worse due to finger/hand vs elbow) thing is also back same day and they both went out the same day. issue here is mostsuckass way more likely to be affected going forward.

            yeah i had probably one of those from being psycho drunk when a bus almost hit something (i was holding a handrail); more likely a tendon or something in the hand, but it was there for about a year. and i don’t have to do hard stuff like professional baseball hitting. “let him play through it” he’ll F’ing SUCK for like months now probably at least 65% of the time too. it’s such garbage. not k.bryant not fixing his shoulder type garbage, but close.

                yep, i was exactly right about rendon. such a stupid win/loss ratio to just NOT DL him back when he got hurt last sat. now they can’t go back that far.

                    WAS is a huge culprit of this shit routinely. think it was treat urner/zimmerman in other recent seasons they do this with. guy gets what they don’t know one way or the other is a 10 min day injury or not and they end up losing about 17+ days due to not just doing this in the first place. rendon himself i think they did this with at least one other time in the last 2 years too. probably borrowing the mess’ “medical staff”

    I’m in a standard roto. For SP we use K-QS-ERA-WHIP. Who do you like more ROS across these categories…Carlos Rodon, Sonny Gray or Luke Weaver. Peripherals are looking good for each. Gray has the injury history.

    Also, I have a bench spot available and struggling to find a 3B to cover for Shaw when he’s not in the lineup or playing well. Do you like Eduardo Escobar or Renato Nunez for counting stats and average?

        Wow…had no idea how well Nunez is hitting the ball. Took a deeper dive.

        R. Nunez:

        Exit velo 92.5 (MLB avg 89)
        HR distance 414 (MLB avg 400)
        Launch angel 18.4 (MLB avg 12.6)
        Hard hit 44.3%
        Soft hit 12.9%
        FB 45.7%;
        GB 31.4%

        Eduardo Escober:

        Exit velo 87.3
        HR distance 366
        Launch angle 12.9
        Soft hit 15.3%
        Hard hit 43.1%
        GB 44.4% (up 12.3% from 2018)
        FB 31.9%

        Kinda liking Nunez over Escober. Breakout year, possibly? Do these stats change your mind at all or still take Escober?

            He hasn’t exactly earned mucho confidence with his performance to date. Not that Fowler has either but his contract plays a strong role in playing time I believe. Hopefully he takes advantage of his opportunities soon. I’m not dropping anytime soon.

        1. I’ve been holding Fried in a 12 team mixed, and Woodruff for now, are they both better than streamers in that format?

    Here’s an interesting one…. Redraft league, 12 teams. I’m in 3rd place but getting killed in SB and R. What do you think of the below?

    I get Trea Turner

    I give Vlad + Rasiel Iglesias

    (I am at the top in saves, with Yates, Alvarado, Hader aside from Rasiel, plus Buttrey and Nick Anderson . . . and can trade for Minter or Swazack probably)

    Definitely Turner side, right?

    What’s good Grey? A ton of young 2B/SS getting called up in the past week and you’re claiming all are “must additions). You can only add so many 2B/SS, so who’s the cream of the crop out of Tucker, Kieboom, and Rengifo?

    In a 12-team keeper I’m giving Sale and Mazara and getting back Paddack, Conforto, and Weaver. I think the latter side of the trade is better, but worried about IP limits. Thoughts? Which side would you take?

    Happy Friday!

    I was just to about to ask you in your other blog post today about Rowdy Tellez. Looks like you’re in on him too!

    But I want to throw these numbers at you, anyway. Rowdy has a hard-hit rate of 44.7%. And guess what, he has a fly-ball rate of 44.7% … I like those numbers!!!

    And guess who is protecting Rowdy at the dish tonight? None other than Vlad Jr. batting fifth right behind him. Me thinks this might get interesting.

    Are you full-on up for investing in Rowdy too? Or do you have some reservations?

    • Grey

      Yeah, I like Rowdy, but over who?

        Oh, I’m not picking him over anyone really.

        He’s just one of the final two spots on my team. Basically a revolving door spot until I find someone that I really want to keep. I figure he’s worth a roll for a while.

    Read an interesting article on MLB.com about Yelich.

    His splits:

    14 Home Games – .417/.540/1.771 – 13 HR’s
    11 Road Games .227/.306/.273 – 0 HR’s

    Of his 13 HR’s this year, 12 have come against two teams:

    8 vs. Cards
    4 vs. LAD

    Going back to last year, his last 18 HR’s have been at home.

    Can he sustain this level of production for an entire season at home to offset his lack of production on the road? That’s asking a lot. Will his year-end numbers end up being good, but not great?

    Makes me wonder if he’s a sell high to get a haul for him. What do you think?

    • Harley Earl says:
      (link)

      Those are amazing stats. That’s 31 homers in a row at home and none on the road during the same time period. What a joke.

      Might be time to sell high. Then again, you’d be selling maybe the best player in baseball, better get Trout in return!!

      • Harley Earl says:
        (link)

        Wait, going back to last year, 18 HR.

        Oooops. My bad.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      He hasn’t hit a homer since last Sept on road… But, he still does hit at home, so he’s not terrible… He just needs to be “okay” on road to offset home #s, if they keep up… I’d imagine they meet somewhere in middle

      • Bat Flip says:
        (link)

        It gets even more interesting. His 2018 splits are almost identical:

        Home 59 R / 22 HR / 55 RBI / .324
        Road 59 R / 14 HR / 55 RBI / .328

        And half his HR came against 3 teams.

        Stats can be fun.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, so this is a case where he just happened to have some home games in beginning of the year while hitting well, and facing less than terrific pitching….

        • Bat Flip says:
          (link)

          And 21 of the 36 HR’s came in August and September.

          I have too much time on my hands at this moment.

          • Bat Flip says:

    Following up on question from other post. DT made suggestion that B. Dozier be dropped for Chavis if positional eligibility makes sense. Chavis has started 4 games at 2B and would need 10 to gain eligibility there. Think he makes it to 10 relatively soon?

        • c says:
          (link)

          yeah, ’cause Desmond’s been so darn great. The Rockies are going to realize that Desmond is nothing more than a 4th OF/Bench Bat at this point. Tapia – Blackmon – Dahl is their best OF and the one that helps them win. Tapia will get more AB than Desmond by the end of the year. While not a “full time” player, he will be 90% of one, which is still pretty damn good. You may disagree with Grey, and that’s fine, but you are wrong.

    Hey Grey,

    Happy Friday! Grabbed Kieboom last night in my 10 TM keeper to replace Wong at MI, upgrade or kinda whatever? Pretty much the weakest spot in my lineup and the wire is a wasteland for MI for whatever reason.

    This team has been killing it the last few years thanks to you and all the awesome Razz info. Thanks for the amazing site!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Upgrade… No problem!

      • CloudTown says:

        As a follow up, I once recommended Razzball to my best friend who is in the same league. He somehow decided he didn’t want to use your info and I have been kicking ass ever since. Thankfully no one else has found out yet!

        It was nice to get a BOOM from Kieboom tonight!

            Drop Wong to open up a streaming spot? Or grab Weaver?
            This league is weird, it’s only 10TM but 7×7 (OBP, SLG, QS, HD) plus deep benches and people go cray for marginal stats. Closers and MR are non-existent, just trying to get solid guys. I’m winning by a lot, thinking I just want to make moves to make them. Thanks!

        bryant for hendricks? KB hit a homer yesterday!

        Looking at his batted ball numbers his barrel rate is down, exit velo is about the same (only 88-89 surprising), launch angle is 16.8 which is pretty good I thought, HH rate is down tho to only 30.6%. You are the pro, can this be turned around? He is barreling less of them and hitting them softer. Maybe that shoulder is still fucked up. Or is the hard hit rate down cuz he is just not barreling them up? which means its luck? BABIP is only 290 compared to 330-340 in the past. Jeez this is like scientific research.

    1. Here is my current pitching staff. I’m currently in 5th place in a 13 team 5 x 5 Rotisserie League. Really struggling in ERA and Whip. I usually stream one starting pitcher slot, but haven’t so far this year. Which of my current starters would you drop for streaming spot, or should I just hold and play with what I have? Thanks !!!!!

    2. Also not crazy about my Closers but not much left out there in this 13 team league. Blake Parker is available. Would you drop any of my current closers for him? Thank You !!!!!

    ok, NOW the alvarado/d.castillo vs pagan seems to make little sense. alvarado brought in to face lesser hitters than were left to pagan.

    for holds in a 14 teamer (saves too, separately) i have rogers/parker/giles/morgan/kelly and kimbrel wasting a BN slot. drop anybody and if so who for britton (recently dropped by a 2nd person). familia also out there. morgan seems to be the holds for sure fireman guy now at PHI. kelly appears to have the 8th inning back and is doing better.

    Hey, Grey:

    I’ve been seeing some “sell high” commentary lately regarding Javy Baez and his presumably unsustainable production, due in large part to his BABIP, K/BB, and penchant for making good contact on bad pitches. I have him in my 15-team roto keeper (8th round), and can keep him for one more season after this one. Worth it to offer him up for Lindor (1st round/2 more keepable years) or Arenado (back in the pool after this season) if I’m going for a championship, or should I just ride the wave?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d take Lindor if you can keep for an extra year than Baez, but they’re essentially the same, and I like them more than Arenado

    RP (max room for 3): soylent greene (crazy luck that i kept him, got cheesed off when i saw the more talented closers that weren’t kept that i could’ve drafted had i not kept him), e.diaz, w.smith
    DL (5, but easily maxed out due to tons of hitters in them too): a.wood, carmart

    H2h league with saves and holds as separate categories. Despite having Brasier, Parker and Strop, I never win saves. Hand owner is willing to do a two for one. Which two would you send? I can backfill the opening position with a wire guy like Pagan, Swarzak, Buttrey etc

    So back to that odor question.
    Would you ride with him and drop Brandon Lowe to pick up Eduardo Escobar? Or hold Lowe if Odor stinks it up? Thanks as always!

    16 teamer with OPS and hits added.
    C jansen
    1B goldy
    2B fletcher
    SS j.polanco
    3B arenado
    OF (3) puig, brocktune, laureano
    util (2) joc, cron
    BN gallo (1B/OF)
    DL (5): segura (is fine after being hit in the head), odor (seems fine too), otani
    so fletcher is the first easy drop, is the 2nd brocktune here or laureano? back when i drafted this the war room said i needed steals, thus laureano, but then i got brocktune super cheap late in the draft. will need to drop another soon with otani as well.

      Laureano

    Drop Dominguez in NL-Only H2H for Jon Duplantier (possible rotation spot)? Dominguez is still striking guys out, but has been bad enough (and Neris pitching really well) to be held from any save opportunities. Robertson could be activated soon, and be the setup guy.

    NL-Only H2H 5×5 (OBP), Auction Keep-5

    Hi Grey,

    I am in desperate need of power, and Eugenio Suarez’s owner in need of a couple of SPs. Would you rank the offers you’d do (or would hold off on) given my roster that’s below them. I figure all would be good in order to get Suarez alone given the nature of SPs and ability to stream. He originally offered Suarez for Ryu/Musgrove, but that seems like a bit much given my staff. Also, Musgrove is a $6 keeper, so I’d have to take that in consideration. If Ryu stays healthy, they will probably my two most consistent SPs. We do know, however, that Ryu is always one pitch from the DL.

    I am putting these in order of what I was thinking would be best for me. I definitely have more bargaining power because his offense is really good and his SPs are: C. Anderson, M.Kelly, Weaver, Alcantara and Nelson(IL).

    All offers would be for Suarez and Neris.
    A) Ryu/Richards
    B) Matz/Richards
    C) Matz/Stripling
    D) Ryu/Efflin
    E) Matz/Eflin
    E) Musgrove/Richards

    Any other possibilities that you think would be reasonable, but leave me with a good enough lineup to compete in H2H? I don’t have any dominant SPs, and I’ve been able to do well enough each week because of the amount of starts I’ve had. I will face really good staffs coming up. Neris would give me some Saves, but who knows long-term. I guess streaming and SAGNOF.

    I really appreciate your thoughts!!

    Roster:
    CA Cervelli
    1B Rizzo
    2B Hernandez
    3B Rendon
    SS Hampson
    IF Escobar

    Hi Grey, I am in a points, salary cap league, where multiple teams can own the same player. There is no bench. I have 10 moves left for the year. The last move can be made in late August. Should I hang on to J Aguilar? I could pick up any of the following:

    H Dozier
    G Polanco
    C Walker
    W Contreras
    D Santana (Tex)
    R Tapia
    S S Choo

    T La Stella

    Hi Grey! Do you watch Barry (HBO)? I consider it a nice switch-up after GoT. The Hank character is a fun part.

    Anywho, looking to add a 2B option to Shaw in an 11-team 6×6 w/OPS and Holds. I hope to have Shaw there normally, but with how he’s gotten off it might be good to call that daily until the results are there. Options include:

    Odor
    Kike
    J. McNeil

    Is that the right odor?
