(NOTE: THIS POST WAS RELEASED EARLY THIS WEEK ON OUR PATREON. IT’S $10/MONTH.)
Riley Greene is 21. He was 20 last year. That’s how age works. Next year, he’ll be 22. Guess what he’ll be in two years. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Wrong! 23. *marks test with a D* It’s a passing grade, but I expected more from you. I am passing you because I didn’t want to see you again next year. As a 20-year-old in 124 games at Double and Triple-A, Riley Greene went 24/16/.301 with 25 doubles, eight triples and a 11.5% walk rate and 27.6 K%. That last rate worries me a tad. He was the youngest guy at Double-A, so I’m not writing him off as a guy who can’t make contact, but when a guy with a 27% strikeout rate comes up, here’s what happens: The strikeout rate balloons to 32%, then people are like, “Damn, I wanted to like Riley but he comes with a .230 average, and I can’t afford that. Maybe some other time!” Then his strikeout rate falls back to 27% and people are like, “That’s better, but he’s still a .250 hitter, and I already have Mark Canha.” Finally, when Riley’s forgotten, his strikeout rate drops to 20%, he hits .285 and people are like, “Wow, where did that come from? He’s breaking out late in his career,” and he’s really only 23 years old. That’s obviously a trend I’ve seen happen more than once. So, he might hit .230 this year. Everything else? Well, kinda beautiful. Five tools gets a bad rap because it’s tossed around with hyperbole, but Riley Greene is five tools without the hyperbole. It’s literal. Riley Greene wears his underwear like a glove because he’s got five tools. On Prospect Itch’s top 100 fantasy baseball prospects, I watched the top 20 or so, and from what I’ve seen, Riley Greene has earned his 6th overall ranking, while also getting short shrift because the guys in front of him are so good. Guess Riley is Greene with envy. *falls down a staircase, sits up* Tah-dah! There’s nothing Riley Greene can’t do. He might’ve broke camp with the Tigers, but he broke a foot instead. Now that he’s healthy, he will be up in a matter of weeks. I’d put the date at June 15th with a plus or minus five days. Also, here’s me talking about Riley Greene on our Youtube channel. Please click that and click subscribe so I can stop asking.
Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:
William Contreras – Okay, real question: Who are you taking in a Fantasy Womb league? Momma Molina or Momma Contreras? Momma Molina’s got a future Hall of Famer, but Momma Contreras could have two top 12 catchers for the next five years.
Alejandro Kirk – I finally bit the bullet and switched Sean Murphy out in my league for Kirk. As Kirk would say, “Live long, and pupusa.”
Hunter Dozier – “I’m the captain now.” That’s Dozier talking to Christian Walker, who he usually follows, but is now listed first.
Christian Walker – “Interesting rivalry you’re having with yourself, I don’t care.” That’s Walker talking to Dozier.
Edwin Rios – Nearly made him the lede, but what fun would that be? (Less fun than a top five prospect.) As I mentioned on this week’s podcast, and in a post earlier this week, Muncy’s prolly gonna have a lost season. He was injured last year and it never healed, which is so obvious it really makes me wonder how I have a better-working brain than the entire Dodgers’ organization. I’m so dumb I say things like “better-working brain!” If Muncy is out, Rios could be a top 20 cornerman. He could be: What we thought we might’ve got from Jeimer Candelario but absolutely did not get.
Pavin Smith – Didja know Pavin was born in a log cabin that was used as the inspiration for a maple syrup bottle? No? Prolly because it’s not true. He has been hotter than a stack of flapjacks on the back of a cherry-red IROC.
Vinnie Pasquantino – This is more of me saying I know the two Royals gabagools are out there and ready, I’m looking at Vinnie and Nick Pratto all the time. Just so you don’t think I fuggetabout’em.
Luis Garcia – Here’s what I said the other day, “There’s more Luis Garcias than Rocky movies. I will now compare them. Luis Garcia, the Astros pitcher, he’s Rocky 1. Clearly. Luis Garcia, the Padres’ reliever, he’s Rocky 2. I’m sure I saw it, but I can’t tell you what it was about. I mean, besides boxing. Luis Garcia, the Nats’ middle infielder who was just called up, he’s Rocky 3. Luis Garcia in the Jays’ system? I’m gonna go Rocky 6, because I don’t know if there is a Rocky 6 and I don’t know anything about that Luis Garcia. The Phils’ Luis Garcia? He’s all the Rockys. He’s from Philly! (This feels like a paragraph Bill Simmons would’ve wrote, if he still wrote things.) Now, I didn’t place Nats’ Luis Garcia as Rocky 3 by accident. I’m not punch-drunk. Rocky 1 was an Oscar movie; clear number one. But Rocky 3 has Hulk Hogan, and Mr. T, and, more importantly, Mr. T saying to Adrian, “Let’s bang!” It’s got it all! It’s a fan favorite, just as this Luis Garcia can be. Alcides is out, and sucks. The Nats didn’t promote Luis Garcia to not play him. In 79 Triple-A games, he went .309/.369/.562 with 21 HR with no speed. He has insanely great contact and decent power. I’m a fan.” And that’s me quoting me!
Keston Hiura – I saw Keston in the top 20 for 2B on the 7-day Player Rater, and I just knew I had to recommend him (so he can get cold again and become irrelevant for another 18 months).
Ramon Urias – My front fender bumper sticker, “Ram-Urias,” has people asking a lot of questions already answered by my bumper sticker.
Luis Guillorme – Has been leading off while Nimmo’s been out. Where? I don’t know, watch the movie!
Harold Castro – Prolly won’t happen but he could hit .300. That’s right, a new Arraez has, uh, Arraez’en.
Kyle Farmer – As the spring turns to the summer, a Farmer gets hot, but this one won’t lead to *crosses self* a Farmer’s tan.
Jose Miranda – A’la Kendrick Lamar’s Auntie Diaries, “Royce is Miranda now…” I’m not sure if this trip to the majors will be better for Miranda, but he’s got at least another ten days before he gets replaced.
Evan Longoria – Who’s hotter, Kyle Farmer, Evan Longoria or Eva Longoria? *checks Google* Okay, guys, sorry, you lost; the lady won.
Josh Rojas – Josh the Red sounds like a Jewish Viking. “Do you have any utensils? The dentist said I should stop gnawing meat right from the bone.” That’s Josh the Red, the unknown Jewish Viking. Rojas could go 15/15/.270, which is obviously a bit yawnstipating but solid in deeper leagues.
Gio Urshela – Just think, you can pick him up and call him, Myshela. How sweet.
Trevor Larnach – Loading up on the Twins’ hot bats this week. This surprised me, so I will share with you. Twins’ hitting is near the top 10 for hitting for just about every metric — homers, BA, runs, etc.
Kole Calhoun – By the time, Calhoun is over 50% rostered, he won’t be hot anymore. Um, yeah, not exactly the way you wanna do things.
Michael Harris II – Just gave you my Michael Harris II fantasy. It was written before seeing the first one.
Trent Grisham – This means nothing really because no one uses ESPN’s tools, but our 7-day Player Rater has Grisham as the 22nd best outfielder (as of this writing), because he’s been hot. ESPN has him listed as the 111th best outfielder. Just fantastically useless.
Tucupita Marcano – When he’s seeing the ball well, he says he’s in the pocket. That’s where ‘pita is now.
Christopher Morel – I held my dog, Ted, up to my computer with the waivers page open to see if he’d lick the screen where Morel’s name was to see if he could hunt truffles. Instead, Ted licked Jesse Winker, so he was kinda truffle hunting because truffles are usually covered in sh*t.
Nick Plummer – Too bad Plummer’s first name isn’t Mario with a brother, Luigi, and a princess that stood on top of the Big Apple in center at Citifield. Yeah, too bad about that.
Tyrone Taylor – Is Renfroe back yet? How about now? Now? What…about…now?! That’s gonna factor in here.
Nelson Velazquez – Here’s what Prospect Itch said, “Velazquez brings plus athleticism at 6’0” 190 lbs and put up a tasty 20 HR 17 SB season across two levels last year, culminating in his best stretch as a pro: 34 games in AA slashing .290/.358/.581 with 8 HR and 5 SB despite being 2.5 years younger than the average player. He also won MVP of the Arizona Fall League this year, and while I don’t care much about that, or Grey.” Hurtful!
James Kaprielian – This is a Streamonator call like the call it makes to the assisted living facility.
Glenn Otto – This is also a Streamonator call. “Just put on any elderly person who wants to talk. I need to be more specific?”
Ryan Helsley – If he starts getting saves regularly, he will be a top five closer. He might be more valuable than Liam Hendriks from the moment Helsley starts getting saves.
Brad Hand – Knebel might not be able to hold onto the Phils’ closer job. If only they had someone that could hold…the…job…Wait a minute! They have a Hand! Kidding aside, if the Phils made the switch to Hand, he’d suddenly become a 7+ ERA pitcher. The Phils’ pen is polluted like Michele Pfeiffer’s womb. Because someone might be wondering, I see Seranthony Hopkins Dominguez doing well too, but I don’t trust him either.
Anthony Bass – He seems like the only decent reliever in the Marlins’ pen. Well, Bass and Tanner Scott, but Scott’s a lefty, so I think he’s only situational. Let’s see how long it takes that stupid, mustache-less Mattingly to figure it out.
Jhoan Duran – Pagan was placed on the restricted list, so no saves for him this weekend. Also, he just sucked up the suckhole.
Colin Poche – I like to pronounce his name, “Poochie.” Besides Poochie, the Rays have 17 worthwhile relievers. This really is a committee, which reminds me, Raley, he’s there too.
Adam Cimber – On the Player Rater, he’s been more valuable than Edwin Diaz. Yes, that Edwin Diaz. What other Edwin Diaz is there? Is this like a Rougned Odor and Wilmer Flores situation where there’s dozens in the multiverse?
Walker Buehler – I swear I don’t have anything against the Dodgers. They’re my hometown team. If anything, they’re the one team I root for when the playoffs come rolling around. I love Betts; Gonsolin is my boo; Justin Turner’s hair reminds me of Cheetos and I love Cheetos! There’s plenty of Dodgers I like. I want a nightlight that is just Freddie Freeman’s teeth! See, big-time love. With that said, Walker Buehler is so overrated. I don’t understand why no one realizes this. Maybe it’s the, “He can get Wins because of run support.” Sure, I guess. Um, who cares? His strikeouts suck. You think he’s an ace, but he is barely a number two. Yes, I wrote a schmohawk post for him in the preseason, and I’m here to tell you I was right, and am double-downing. Down-doubling? Hmm, that sounds weird! Any hoo! I wouldn’t trade Walker Buehler for a urologist with fat, cold fingers but I would go to our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.
Take a flyer on Strasburg, Megill or Jeffrey Springs? Thanks!
Should I add Jeffrey Springs or Edward Cabrera?
Nelson cruz for robbie ray would you make that deal? I have nelson cruz.
H2h categories runs, 2b, hits, hrs, rbi, avg, sb, ip, wins, saves, bb, era, whip, ks
Bench rodgers, gorman, naylor
Cease, mclanahan, cobb, kirby, plesac, marco gonzalez, rasmussen, ashby, blackburn
IL peralta heaney disco
Grey, Luis Garcia or Nick Senzel?
Who’s the drop out of yepez, Jesus Sanchez, and tyrone Taylor? Thanks!
Hey Grey, can you please pick two?
1) Tellez, Schwindel, Espinal,Lourdes, Escobar, Suarez, Garcia
Would you drop Rutchsman for Garver, Ruiz, Vasquez, Murphy or Jansen?
1. Adolis, Tellez — sure Garver
Sorry Grey, that Garcia was Luis
Need a fill-in for Wander Franco. Elvis, Harold Castro, Andrew Velazquez, or Nicky Lopez. Roto 5X5. THANKS!
Wow, I think I remember Enos Cabell. Distinctive name!
ROS 3B McMahon or Farmer?
ROS OF (2 spots) Teoscar, Vaughn, Yaz, Straw?
11 team 5×5 standard roto
McMahon — Teoscar, Vaughn
awesome you rock
Which of these guys is most likely to produce holds …Cimber, Neris, Montero?
I have been going by matchups and that has not been great.
Secondly, Montero again with a save as Pressley is ineffective. Anything here or typical closer rough patch?
Cimber…pressly was ejected
Like Stott or Bohm for MI/CI in obp & Ks league?
I now have 7(!) IL (all no brainers to retain) with room for 3 IL slots and 4 bench. So I know I will be going generally with an incomplete roster until people return. My main concern is maximizing my active roster and so I’m often dropping DTD guys. Two I want advice.
1) Alex Cobb is not IL (but the reports sound dubious). Who’s my cut? Cobb or Ryan? Plan on keeping one.
2) Luis Urias is also not IL (but seems iffy for a few more days). Cut him for a healthy (albeit weak) body (e,g Lux; Gimenez; …).
1. Cobb 2. Sure
Small/shallow 6-team friends roto league. We use QS. Which SP do you prefer – Skubal or Montas?
And where would you slot Cease in between these two? QS are infrequent and I’m concerned about his control issues – walked 7 twice this year. He’s lucky to have a low 3’s ERA. A low ERA with high WHIP leads to trouble at some point.
Montas, Cease, Skubal
thanks for working the weeken!
would you cut Paul Blackburn, Mike Mikolas or Merrill Kelly to pick up Cinn’s Graham Ashcraft or Cleveland’s Konner Pilkington or make no changes?
Kelly for one week of Pilkington is fine by me
Happy Sunday Grey,
I kinda stupidly dropped Rutschman to add Strider in our Yahoo 10 Team H2H Points League thinking I could either add him back or add Kirk, but Kirk is gone and Rutschman is still on Waivers. Your thoughts on who would the add be:
Sorry to bother you on Sunday with a C question, but it’s what I got.
Thanks much Grey.
Thank you. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Ok, one more Grey. I need to make room for Travis, so I’ve narrowed it down to Taillon or Strider as the drop. I won’t bore you with the rest of my staff.
Thanks again Grey.
Limited moves for the season, 10 left. 15 team pts. salary constraints.
I have Bryant, Devers and Witt Jr (SS-3B) at 3b which means I cant play Witt at SS. I can have anyone but looking at Wisdom, Hayes or McMahon (2b-3b) for lower salary value.
Need an active 3bm for the Friday hitters switch option if needed.
Burn a valued move or hold Bryant? Who of the 3? Wisdom has the lowest salary. I would probably lose Suzuki and keep Bryant with his 3b-of eligibility in case he comes alive.
Thank you in advance.
Per previous comments my bride and I are going to the movies to watch Top Gun.
I’d hold your moves there
Top Gun is great, enjoy!
My man Grey, I hope you’re enjoying your weekend. In NL-only it looks like Broneil and Seiya will be activated in a few days. Any hesitation in dropping Lane Thomas and Tyrone Taylor? Lane finally hitting #2 lately is tough to let go. Tyrone easier with Renfroe coming back, though I wonder if Counsell prioritizes Tyrone over Cain going forward. Any thoughts on Lane and Tyrone? I could potentially drop one for streaming purposes and keep one as a bench bat.
I like Lane and Taylor, can’t imagine they’re droppable in an NL-Only, unless it’s a very shallow one
Thanks very much for all your help over the years. It’s a 10-team NL-only with 21-man rosters, so I agree it’s not ideal to drop either. Three OFs are Acuna, Pham and Lane and two UTs are Votto and Taylor. O’Neill and Seiya coming back means having 2 bench bats and no catcher (been playing without a catcher for several weeks due to injury crunch). Ideally I would drop one bench bat to either (1) free up a streaming spot, (2) pick up a catcher or (3) pick up a stash like McGill. I could try a two for one trade to upgrade elsewhere and free up a spot, but trades are tough to pull off in this league. What would you do? If you had to drop, who would you drop first?
Guess lose Taylor or Votto, that order…or trade Votto for anything
Kirk or MJ? Sorry for the Dreaded C question
Happy Sunday, Grey.
What’s your thoughts on Holmes keeping the closer spot on the Yankees over Chapman, ROS? Percent guess works….lol
Berrios finally turning things around or take advantage of his great start Saturday and move him?
Jump at opportunity to move Berrios for Arenado in very deep league?
Depends what you can get, I’d take Arenado
12 Team H2H 6×6 OPS QS Daily Redraft
Ward now on IL. I only have 3 spots with Megill (rehab start today), B. Lowe, and O’Neill. Trying to hold all 4, but who is the drop if I must? Have Andres at 2B right now with Morel to soon have ESPN eligibility as well.
1). Kirk or Morton
2). Kirk or Sandoval
3). Kirk or Wood
Longoria or Eugenio?
Hey Grey –
I’m looking to revise pitching for the week. It’s a QS, K/9 league, so Syndegaard (v BOS, v NYM) is killing me, as is Trevor Rogers (v WAS, @ HOU)
I’m looking at Jon Gray (@ CLE, @CHW), Ranger Suarez (@MIL, v ARZ) and Pilkington (v TX, v OAK) as 2 start options and Edward Cabrera (v WAS) with one start for K numbers.
Would you take a shot on any of these guys this week? Would you drop Syndegaard or Rogers? I’m also holding Max Meyer, but maybe he’s droppable given his injury? I also picked up Spencer Strider for the K numbers. Ride with him for another start (v PIT)?
How deep is this league
12 teams. roster = 14 batters, 9 pitchers, 4 bench
Couple of questions for my 12 team H2H league with OBP.
Rowdy Tellez or Christian Walker?
Renfroe is available in my league and due back Tuesday. Drop Joc Pederson, Austin Hays, or hold off on grabbing Renfroe?
Walker — Drop Hays for Renfroe
hey grey. Happy Sunday to you. You said to me yesterday that bregman sucks. Is it just this year? Do i start or sit him? If i start him, someone has to sit from UTIL hitters either Guillorme or C. Vazquez and both are hitting currently
Bregman wasn’t good last year
so sit him today and try and trade him? What can i get for him talent wise?
Sure, try to trade him
what is fair trade value for him?
What do you need?
i could use a C,OF,SP
MJ Melendez? Kirk? Maybe a 2nd OF, like a Yelich? Maybe a 2nd SP like a Manaea?
Hey Grey— In a deep 14 teamer 1 catcher league I’ve been carrying two catchers since melendez came up, and still holding him and dArneaud. Looking to add either yepez, A Thomas or position of need with one. Which would you drop to do that?
L. Gurriel, Brendan Donovan , or Hunter Dozier as my bench bat? 6×6 H2H league. Thanks!
Starting Lauer today? Home vs SD. Thanks!
I’ve been crushed with injuries lately. Calhoun or N Gorman? 6×6 with OPS the extra category. Thanks
First year I’ve taken a C before the last round, and man am I glad it’s Contreras. Is it dumb to bat a C 2nd or (gasp!) leadoff? You bet! Am I happy they keep doing it? HELLS TO THE YEAH I AM! keep stealing those bags, slowpoke! Hamstrings are for other people to worry about!
On another note, how disappointing has Pete Alonso been? I finally draft the guy & he has 1 SB. Contreras has 2! Would it kill Albombso to swipe the occasional bag? Sheesh. What a loser.
Also, Lindor is your classic post post post post post post post post post post post post post-hype sleeper. What a bargain.
10 SPs made the 2022 Best 100 Pitching Starts in the last 2 days.
Wow, also a lot of homers…All homers or Ks, I suppose
Svhd pick up yimi Garcia, graveman, drew smith, hand or bass?
or Daniel Hudson?
So graveman out of all these?
Sorry bc you gave extra names later I read them later too haha
stanton back, need to drop one of these: a.thomas (CF only), stanton (LF/RF), joc (all OF), happ (all OF), tucker (RF), k.calhoun (RF). 14 teamer and starting slots of LF/CF/RF/OF/util (but otani goes in the util). probably thomas i’d guess. it’s keep 5 hitters per year (at most 2 of them can be OF’ers though). rest of lineup:
2B edman (SS)
SS treat urner (2B)
3B l.urias (or miranda or odor)
MI mateo (CF/2B/SS)
CI yepez (1B/LF)
12 Team H2H 6×6 OPS Daily Redraft
Please rank these bench bats:
Jace, Morel, Tyrone
Clevinger appears set for tomorrow, yes?
What to make of Cease? Effectively wild again but 7 BBs in five innings?
Good news is I traded for Berrios for Gurriel a few weeks ago and held him. It is like they take turns being scary!
Maybe the A’s will score runs for Montas. Best 2-5 pitcher in the league – no lol as it is painful.
Ha, yeah…no idea on Clevinger, first I’m hearing it tbh
Bassitt/Joc or Ray/Renfroe?
Wondering if it’s so similar as to be pointless…?
Not that similar
i cannot decide on the Mets David Peterson. He is still on waivers.
1. Would you pick him up?
2. i had the crazy idea. If he pitched well tonight on the road at the Dodgers, then pick him up. what do you think?
3. if i was going to pick him up, then have to drop the Cards Mikolas, Oakland’s Blackburn, AZ’s Kelly, or the Padres Clevinger? what do you think?
your help and effort is always appreciated!
1. He’s a streamer…Clevinger’s hurt so you can lose him if you want
Was offered Corbin Burnes for my Jrod and Nestor . 5×5 QS league.
Works for me
I need TWO — one 2B and one MI in a 5×5 14-team OBP league.
all 2B/MI elig
only SS/MI elig
He can walk, He can talk
He knows how to stash using his IL spot
That’s right his name is Joc
what followed him so commonly like an Itch
was Tommy Pham who slapped him like a Bitch
And even though this fiasco is said to be a disgrace
I cant believe it happened in the first place.
They cant be arguing though over money
Even thought that would be funny
Ego and pride
do either take it in stride???
Whatever man Im Tommy mother fing Pham
I have 4 SP tomorrow and need your advice on who to start:
Gausman at home vs MIN
Giolito @ TB
Ryan Feltner at home vs ATL
Urias at home vs NYM
im thinking perhaps start all
you think Feltner will get lit up by Atlanta? Just as a fall back, I just picked up Domingo German for $5 and put him on my iL
ok i’ll sit him. Thanks again.
hat are your thoughts about me picking up D. German
To put on your bench? Sure, if you want, no idea who you’re dropping for him
once he comes off the IL i could drop the one from COL – Feltner
or i could drop Raley of TB
Depends what you need…don’t need holds? Then lose Raley
i can always use holds. LOL
What is wrong with Bregman (hitting .222 for the year)?
just this year right? also do u think i should drop the kid from COL now?
I wouldn’t drop him
ok. I wont start him vs ATL tomorrow
I will be getting Kershaw and woodruff back within a week or so
I feel so good today. I picked up Tyler Anderson. there is nothing better when picking up a pitcher off waivers and then he begins to shine. Thanks for telling me to start him! I have some interesting pitching decisions today and would appreciate your opinion.
2.I was going to start Miami’s Pablo Lopez at home against the Giants Gore. Do you agree?
3.I was going to start Boston’s Piverta on the road at Oakland? Do you agree?
4.In the Boston game, I also have the Oakland pitcher who is Paul Blackburn and I was going to sit PLackburn? Do you agree?
1. Agree 2. Yes 3. Yes 4. Sure
Naylor or Michael Harris in a h2h points league? Thanks brother!
I’m in a 12 team 5×5 OBP H2H Categories league, with daily moves. I’m 3-3-1 so far. Worst categories for me have been HR, RBI, OBP, K.
C – Will Smith
1B – Votto
2B – Gleyber
3B – Morel
SS – Witt
IF – Naylor
OF (4) – Harper, Springer, Laureano, Gallo
Util – Connor Joe
Bench – Walker, Wong, Nimmo
IL – Bryant, India
SP – Verlander, Wheeler, Buehler, Gilbert, Roansy, Cobb, Sandoval, Hunter Greene
RP – Gallegos, Helsley, Lopez, Jimenez
IL – Giles
I have $75 out of $100 FAAB left, but because the only time a player goes on waivers is if they’re dropped from a roster, we don’t actually use it a lot (I’ve used the most).
#1) Lance Lynn was dropped this week. I can pick up straight to IL. I should break the FAAB bank on him here, correct?
#2) Josh Donaldson also dropped this week, is he worth a bid?
#3) Have been thinking about shopping one of my top 4 SP for a big bat. Is that a good idea, or should I just hold and hope the power comes along?
Thank you very much for everything, love the site.
1. Meh, $6..you don’t need another arm
2. I guess, $1
3. I guess, Walker for a top 20 bat
We rockin’ a man bun in the vid? haha
Good work as usual homie!
I do not have a man bun, btw
Since Bryant is on IL, i have only one 3B who is Patrick Wisdom.
1, i think that i need a second 3B. do you agree?
2. Ramon Urias, Rougned Odor and Wilmer Flores are available. Who would you pick?
3. Is it time to waive Grayson Rodriquez or be a little patient?
thanks so much!
1. Sure, Wilmer 3. Yes, waive him, he got hurt
I am going to do it.
With both Wisdom and Flores, who would you start on a daily basis? Do you go with one, and only play the other when he is not playing? Do your use the daily Razz dollar value to decide?
Wisdom, changes daily based on matchups
LA traffic jam for bats today. Could you rank from start to sit order? Daily pts league Gracias!
Profar @ Mil Ashby
Flores @ Mia Lopez
Yepez @ Cubs double header
Walsh @ Phi Wheeler
Jesus vs SF Webb
Yandy vs White Sox Cease
Yepez, Walsh, Jesus, Wilmer, Profar
OPS league. Drop Keibert Ruiz for either Alejandro Kirk or William Contreras?
I’ve been wondering the same thing.
Whelp… Luis Urias definitely sitting for a few. Maybe an IL stint for his jammed thumb preventing him from even gripping a baseball (scowl emoji). I’m trying to trade for a new SS in my league, but it’s been slow going thus far.
Available on the WW:
-J Baez (this may be the right answer, but wow has he been awful so far)
-Urshela (DTD w a foot thing)
-Luis Garcia (Rocky 3)
Who do you like?
Also, I need to activate Stanton before he gets hurt again. Who’s the drop?
Baez — Rowdy
One more… daily lineup 5×5
-Devers and Joc for Riley and Witt?
Tough call, but I have to go Riley side
They accepted. Thanks again!
57 home runs yesterday was apparently the 4th highest daily total in history.
Why do I feel like I should’ve had more on my teams then? Hmm
Good morrow G unit! Right meow I have laureano or vaughn for my last Of spot. should I drop either for Greene? Estrada margot canha and naylor are also on WW but none very exciting. OBP inst of avg. Have a good weekend!
Laureano for Greene…you too!
Ian Anderson droppable in a 12 team mixed? Or hold
Sorry sure as in you can lose him
Hi Grey, 10 tm h2h pts
Please rank top 3 RPs for ROS
G.Soto, C.Poche,R.Iglesias, A.Cimber, J.Duran, D.Bednar, A.Bass
As always big THANKS!
ps. I was lucky enough to find Razzball way back at the beginning, seen it morph into the best Fantasy Sports site, although I’ve always known it was ; ). I’m impressed how all the writers here and especially you, find the time to go over and reply (with keen insight), to everyone’s posts – for that I salute you and throw out a double big THANKS – THANKS!!
Have a great weekend.
You too! Appreciate your kind words!
Raisel, Bednar, Soto
1) Buxton has been dropped in one league, and I will try claiming him., but this league has all pick-ups as FAAB waivers. I currently have ~ 65% of my annual budget remaining. But I do have some Buxton concerns (injury propensity; and 220 BA). I’m thinking of bidding 10% of my budget. Do you think a different amount is better?
2) “ROS” (sic). Duran, Soto, Davy Jimenez?
I’d go to 15% 2. Soto, Duran
Which side you got?
Ohtani (hitter) and Gonsolin for Yordan and Edman
Which closer do you prefer?
Joe Barlow, Bard or Rainey
Hmm…close but gotta go Ohtani
Hope you’re doing well! Another catcher question.
ROS: who do you like in a h2h, standard 5×5 league?
Kirk, Adley Rutschman or Travis D’Arnaud
Jhoan Duran or Ryan Helsley for immediate saves? I know helsley is probably a little better but Pagan who’s been getting most of the twins saves didn’t go to Canada for the weekend due to being unvaxed, BUT Helsley’s team has a double header. Whos getting more saves in the next week or so and whos getting more In the next like month or 2
Would you drop either/both of Morton and Stroman to pick up Quantrill, Taillon, or Jon Gray? 10-tm H2H
Have a great Saturday!
Add Mikolas to the mix of whom to potentially drop. All three (Mikolas-Morton-Stroman) have been on the bench most weeks.
Recommend dropping Longoria for Jose Miranda? 3B has been a black hole for me most of the season. Thanks!
Longo for Miranda works for me…can lose all three Norbs…Mikolas has come back to earth too
Both, Cal and Taillon
Thanks as always!
Is Hayes about to break out here for real? Better year..Gorman (high up in that lineup) and Hayes?
Howdy Grey, Nestor Cortes – riding him out or should I sell ‘em while he’s high, his ROS projections have me second guessing. Thoughts??
Depends what you can get
Brutal news about Rios, right after that glowing write up.
I know, brutal
Different things but what do you think of Bednar for Yepez?
Just traded France for Wander per our discussion. I have never traded a guy hitting .347 before. Fingers crossed
Grey I have to drop either Pederson, Calhoun, Grisham, or Tyrone Taylor for a CI.
Let’s make it down to Calhoun or Grisham. I might stream the other two tomorrow.
1) Ashby or Sandoval?
2) Davy Jiminez has been hit hard his past three performances. No obvious competition for his job, but he may not need competition if this continues. Should I cut him (for a streamer SP)?
1. Ashby 2. Sure, if you need an SP
Buehler and ARiley for Freddy P and Judge
Keeper league, what say you Grey ?
Judge side, but not so much for this year due to Freddy
This guy backed out of that trade of oneill and altuve for soto because of oneill which i cant blame him and now wants ozuna and altuve for soto would you do that?
I’d want Soto
In a keeper league, I have three pricey 3B – Arenado $44, Bregman $31, and Chapman $20. Our keeper budget will be somewhere in the $325 range. Do you think any of them will be worth paying for?
They all seem likely high, but Arenado seems keepable as of right now
Great work Grey!
Points league… Urshela or Miranda?
Thank you and have a good weekend
Is now the time to be dropping Hosmer (who’s riding my thin bench) for one of these guys?
I’ve already got Walker, who has homered already tonight and is the reason Hosmer is on the pine rather than in my lineup. I’d like to find room on my bench for a guy named Lourdes if I can, and I’m one move away from benching him (which is one step closer to dropping him too).
Grey, my team is struggling with injuries, and I’m debating selling off some pieces to get keepers for next year. We can keep 5 guys per team and I’ve got Devers (6th round next year) Witt (13th) Wander (13th) and Kyle Tucker (13th) as for sure guys that I’d keep as of now. If you were to trade for any of these following guys, how would you rank them as far as keepers go? Soto (10th) Acuna (8th) Trea (6th) Burnes (12th) Manoah (14th) Tatis (12th). Thanks!
Tatis, Acuna, Soto, Trea, Burnes
Yahoo 12-team 5×5
Eovaldi, Manaea, Cortes, Carrasco, Montgomery, Berrios, Cease, Ryan, Springs
Drop, or trade, two. Who’s on the chopping block?
