Doe, a deer, a female deer that sounds like Chaz Roe.  Ray, a drop of eleven Rays!  Me, a name I call myself while looking in the mirror to check on my hair–Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t hear you come in.  I was just singing a little song I call, “Julie Andrews is One Hot Cougar.”  Yesterday, Robbie Ray did the impossible.  No, not strike out 11 Rays hitters.  I mean, yes, he did that.  But that’s not what I found impossible.  I find it impossible to like him, and yesterday he made me smile a little.  Sure, this ‘impossible task’ is a bit subjective, but get out of your own head, it’s all subjective!  Life’s subjective!  Wow, I just became an angry philosopher.  Call me Socrankies.  Robbie Ray’s line yesterday 5 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners (3 BBs), 11 Ks is almost exactly him to a T.  He is a 4.7 BB/9 guy and that was his BB/9 yesterday in under six innings.  He can’t go deep because of the walks, and his Ks are gorge, but also limit his IP.  I don’t hate him as much as it might seem.  I don’t own him, but I can understand the allure.  I “allurve” Ks.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Greg Holland – 1 IP, 1 ER and the blown save, ERA at 1.38.  Everyone can move on, this is for just Holland.  “Don’t unravel, you giant scuzzpuddle of a pitching arm!”  Wait, you read my DM to Holland, didn’t you?  Not cool, that’s a breach of privacy.

Nate Lowe – Sent back down.  Damn, some people definitely got FAABoozled out of their waiver wire duckets.  The Rays told Lowe they are doing this because you gotta be cruel to be kind.

Charlie Morton – 5 IP, 2 ER, 11 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.64.  Charlie Mordecai Morton laughs at all of those that trusted McHugh and poo-poo’d him.  More like McPoo, he thinks, laughing gently under his breath.

Chris Sale – 8 IP, 1 ER, 3 hits, zero walks, 14 Ks, ERA at 4.50.  Unlike the 1st six weeks of the season, yesterday was a good day to throw a starter.  Unless your name rhymes with Sklyer Taggs. Can I take some of the air out of the Sale balloon?  Salloon, even? Actually, you know what, I won’t.  The Orioles aren’t in the top half of the league for Ks.  Sale was getting a swinging strike rate north of 33% on four seamers and he didn’t walk one single batter.  That’s impressive.  Hopefully, if you paid the steep Sale price (oxymoron) at drafts, you get at least a good pitcher until July, when shizz does tend to leave him if past seasons hold true.

Mookie Betts – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer, hitting .290.  Mookie Ballgame!

Andrew Benintendi – 1-for-6 and his 4th homer, hitting .280.  You could use Benintendi’s stats as a bedtime story for fantasy baseballers (<–my mom’s term!) so they fall asleep.

Chris Archer – Scheduled to throw a simulated game on Friday.  He should throw it at one of those robotic dinosaur parks.  That would be awesome.  Then he can bean a dinosaur in the ass and start brawl.

Josh Bell – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer, an absolute mollywhopping blast into the river.  Last year, Bell had the power of a Dust Bunny, this year he busts those dunnies!  No idea what that means, but he really seems to be growing into his power, or is a Saberhagenmetrician darling.

Nick Kingham – 4 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.94.  True Story Alert!  I watched this game ready to pounce on Kingham on waivers and switched the channel about three innings in unimpressed.  I said true, not entertaining.

Hunter Pence – 1-for-1, 4 RBIs and his 5th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games, and yesterday’s homer was a pinch-hit bomb, which takes some of the oomph out of it.  “What’s the exit velocity on that?”  “About 54 oomph.”  Could be a hot schmotato and a Zombino, as neither are mutually exclusive.  Brush up on your terms!

Delino DeShields – Optioned to the minors.  To keep him company, he will be rooming in the minors with my DeShields 2016 sleeper post, my DeShields 2017 sleeper post, my DeShields 2018 sleeper post and my 2018 Willie Calhoun sleeper post.  Fun times.

Rougned Odor – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer and 2nd homer in, like, a few days, which is a major accomplishment for him.  Odor stinks, but maybe not completely rancid.

Joey Gallo – 1-for-2, 2 RBIs and a slam (12) and legs (2), hitting .274, and the homer was another river shot.  Too bad some people in the river were doing the Bird Box Challenge and missed it.

Elvis Andrus – 3-for-5, 1 run and two steals (7, 8), hitting .338. So far this year, Andrus has been the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company SWEET! *covers face, ashamed*

Kyle Hendricks – 8 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.19.  While waiting to hear how loud the boos were for Addison Russell, I saw a stat on Hendricks and it reminded me how criminally underrated he is every year.  His career ERA is 3.10 in 139 career starts.  Ya know, about seven seasons.

Addison Russell – 0-for-3 as he returned from suspension.  Also, the Cubs announced that Ben Zobrist left the club for personal reasons.  Maybe it was personnel reasons that rhymes with Shmaddison Shmife Shmeater Shmussell.

Pedro Strop – Hit the IL with a hamstring strain.  He hurt himself running away from his fantasy owners after his last appearance.  Steve Cishek (1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 3.18) would appear to be the fill-in, but this is Maddon, and he makes you mad, it’s in his name.  Brandon Kintzler has been great this year, and, in deeper leagues, I grabbed him.  Brad Brach might also get looks.  What a shituation!

Jose Urena – 7 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.82.  I’ve been sonavabenched by Urena more than prolly any other starter, while getting burned by him in my lineup for when he was trounced.  Few guys can be so on and so off from start to start.  This is not a compliment.

Brandon Woodruff – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.25.  Listen, I own and like Woodruff, but even I admit I need the Streamonator with him and would not start him everywhere, i.e., in away games he’s Woodbarf.

Mike Moustakas – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer.  Moistasskiss!

Manny Pina – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer.  If you own Manny Pina….and like making love in the rain…

Christian Yelich – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 16th homer, hitting .356.  Why not 4-for-4?  Huh?  What a loser!

Jurickson Profar – 1-for-6, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  I’m tellin’ ya, his big defensive play on Tuesday is turning around his entire season.  Watch.

Kyle Gibson – 6 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 4.19.  Imagine how well he could’ve pitched if that scrub Vlad Jr. was in the lineup.  I liked Gibson a lot in the preseason, and still own him everywhere. I’d say I hope this is the start of something great for him, but he has four straight solid starts, so shizz started already.

Eddie Rosario – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 13th homer, hitting .233.  Guess who’s leading the AL in homers.  One hint:  You’re in his blurb.

Jorge Polanco – 5-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .344.  Is it me or does he almost hit for the cycle every game?  Call him Torge de France.

C.J. Cron – 4-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer, and 2nd homer in four games.  Curtis Jackson is all up in da club with a hot schmotato.

Jonathan Schoop – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .284.  Okay, okay, OKAY! But what did Mitch Garver do?!  Oh, not much yesterday.  Well, even Cal Ripken rested, especially after a good wedgie sesh with Gregg Zaun.

Jerad Eickhoff – 8 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.50.  I’m eick’ing myself that I don’t own him in A) More leagues B) Any leagues C) There’s no C.  D) There was no C, why would there be a D?  E) Don’t make me go through the alphabet!  F) me, for not owning Eickhoff.  His peripherals are not saying he’s an ace — no one in the majors is an ace!  — but Eickhoff’s numbers do say he can be owned in every league.  Podcast Ralph owns him in our 12-team mixed RCL league, and it makes sense to me.

Cesar Hernandez – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, and hitting near-.500 in the last week.  Hot schmotato alert!

Jack Flaherty – 5 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 4.32.  Flaherty can get your everywhere, except to six shutout innings, apizzarently.  Looking at his peripherals, and he appears to be a solid buy-low opportunity — Flahertunity?  His 10.2 K/9, 2.8 BB/9, 3.55 xFIP tells me he should be as good as he was last year when he had a 3.34 ERA in 150+ IP.  Buy, suckas!

Paul Goldschmidt – 0-for-3, hitting .240.  Member when I told you to sell him the day of his 3-HR game, and y’all mocked me?  He has 6 HRs and hitting around .225 since the day after my Sell, because, ya know, you couldn’t have sold him any quicker than that anyway.

Brad Peacock – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 12 Ks, ERA at 4.30.  An old man in a urinal screaming, “PEACOCK!”  I mean, dizzamn.  Now, of course, we can’t trust anything he does, because his last start was a 3 2/3 IP, 7 ER “Please send supplies to this deserted island I’ve moved to after that Peacock start.”  His .231 BABIP says he’s been lucky, but he’s not leaving as many men on as he should/can, so his overall luck is neutral.  The short of it, Peacock is worth grabbing to see if he can shake out of the inconsistency.

Michael Brantley – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and two homers (8, 9), hitting .340.  Best test to see if the balls are juiced?  Cough into a nurses hand.  Or!  If Brantley hits more than 20 homers.  I don’t care what he has now, I’d put $100 fake bucks he doesn’t pass 20 homers.

George Springer – 1-for-2, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer, hitting .291.  Mean’s while, I’m crying into a pie tin I’ve licked clean with Giancarlo’s face.

Tyler Skaggs – 4 2/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 4.70.  It’s not even the mollywhopping Skyler Taggs took, but to do it in a favorable matchup adds extra lemon juice to the open wound.  Taggs, you are not it.

Jonathan Lucroy – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer.  More so than Yelich or Cody or La Stella that Lucroy has five homers is all you need to know about how the ball is jumping out of the park.  Balls so hard, homers gonna find me!  That shizz cray.  Ain’t it, Grey?  What she order, fish filet?  Ball, behave!

David Fletcher – 2-for-5 and his 3rd homer, hitting .306.  It must be so dark and dank in Ausmus’s head. Can you imagine how difficult it is for him to see the idea light bulb that it’s a good idea to bat Fletcher leadoff every game?

Matthew Boyd – 6 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.86.  Yesterday, someone asked if I were buying Boyd.  On April 4th, I wrote, “He’s the first Tigers starter to start the season with back-to-back 10+ K games.  This wasn’t the A lineup for the Yankees, but more “a Yankees lineup.”  Still, I’m buying partly because of FOMO, and since he had 26 swinging strikes, i.e., he was fooling them real good.”  And that’s me quoting me!  On April 4th, I said I was buying and he was the lede!  I mean, c’mon.

Ronny Rodriguez – 3-for-4, 1 run, 4 RBIs, hitting .340.  Keep talking about how I wanted to write a sleeper post for him this preseason.  Yes, I’m buying him too!

Ronald Acuna Jr. – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer.  Tildaddy says this game of Monopoly is over!

Mike Foltynewicz – 6 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 5.94 vs. Clayton Kershaw – 6 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 10 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.31.  This matchup was of two guys I have no interest in owning in any league, which is super pithy! Look at Grey with the pith!  Put on your helmet, boss man! Okay, this is no longer pithy.

Max Muncy – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and a slam (8) and legs (1).  One benefit of answering 500 questions a day, you get a feel for where people’s heads are at. If you wanted to trade for Muncy, it would not take much.

Enrique Hernandez – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer.  Kiké, do love me!

Justin Turner – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, and 4th homer in two games.  Someone’s on fire and I’m not talking about his crotch!

Jonathan Loaisiga – 4 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.50, as he was recalled by the Yankees.  The Yankees were like, “Um….Lasagna?”  And Loaisiga was like, “Close enough!”  Most shallower leagues he’s a Streamonator call, but, not to sound cheesy, I also like Lasagna.

Yusei Kikuchi – 7 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.54.  Donkey Teeth is giving me a run for my money in three different leagues.  Sure, I’m beating him, but he’s real competition.  I trust his knowledge.  So, when he kept saying to me that I need to watch Kikuchi, I didn’t pay attention for six weeks because I’m stupid, but I watched yesterday.  After he sent me a note saying, Kikuchi hadn’t given up a hit in something like eight straight innings from last Friday.  I get it now, Kikuchi is confounding. His windup is vintage Goofy; his name is mellifluous; I see the beauty.  Apologies to Donkey Teeth.

Mitch Haniger – 2-for-4 and a slam (9) and legs (4), hitting .243.  He’s having a solid season, yet — again with some stank — YET! he hasn’t even been hot for an extended period of time.

Edwin Encarnacion – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer, hitting .248, and four homers in the last five games.  It’s the year 3000, someone writes a comment on Razzball, which is now run by a robot Rudy built that became sentient, and that comment is, “Should I drop Edwin?  He’s hit 35 homers every year for the last near-millennia, but I don’t trust him.”

Ryon Healy – 4-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer.  Meh, pretty whatever.  Sure, he’s been better than Kris Bryant, but y’all are the Kris Brystans.

Jose Ramirez – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .205.  Too early for a victory lap, but I think I was legitimately the only one who even mentioned in the preseason that he hit .218 in the 2nd half last year.

Giancarlo Stanton – Still hitting off a tee, due to his shoulder.  Unless he’s changing his sport to golf, I’m concerned.  He’s been sidelined how long now and he’s hitting off a tee?  How is his shoulder even an issue?  He had a biceps injury, I thought.  I’m going to curl into my Trans-Am-shaped bed that I call GianCARlo and try to think good thoughts, but I’m officially concerned.

Matt Strahm – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.00.  Strahm, let the boys be boys! I feel like a Mr. Bungle for saying he wasn’t good after one start.  Stupid call by a stupid…*catches glimpse in mirror*…ly handsome jerkhead.  Mea culpa, if you dropped him.

Eric Hosmer – 1-for-3 and his 6th homer, hitting .280.  You can drop him, as so many of you have asked, but I’m not sure why you drafted a guy to drop when he’s doing exactly what he was always supposed to do.  Mansplaningly, he’s been a bit better.

Hunter Renfroe – 1-for-3 and his 9th homer, and 3rd homer in four games, and holy hot schmotatoes, Renfroe is bizzonkers right now.

Wilmer Font – 4 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 5.50 as he made a spot start.  Fun fact!  Font wears a badge and calls himself a serif.

    Shaw 0 for 4 with a walk and 2 more k’s. The dude struck out with the bases loaded. Brewers score a boat load of runs and he has 8 rbi and is striking out in over a 35% clip. How much longer do you hold this guy? I fear he is going to lose his job any day now. Mayne they should create a mystery dl stint and send him down to get right. Is there any hope for this guy? 12 team league, obp and he qual at 1b, 2b, 3b (love that in a daily lineup league), but he is unplayable now. Thanks

    Hello Grey, Hello DT :)

    Remember? I love & hate Travis Shaw.
    Meadows will be back friday, so I need a room for him.
    Who to drop?

    Obp & xbh 12 teamer roto.
    C – punting
    1B – P Alonso
    2B – 4020 McNeil
    3B – Torenado
    SS – Bogaerts
    CI – Voit
    MI – Segura
    5 OF – Cain Sugar, Castellanos, Tapia, Senzel, Thames
    UT – Franmil, Gardner
    BN – Shaw, Dannys Antana, Ronny Rod
    IL – Stanton, Gennett, Meadows

    I guess you would tell me drop Ronny Rod (or Gardner).
    I love Gardner and he’s been productive. Wanna keep holding him. Ronny Rod might be a hot schmo, I know.
    But I just hate Shaaaaaw. Haha tell me drop him please, fantasy baseball batman & Robin. Thanks :)

      Dietrich one led to that crazy Puig pic of him taking on everyone so there was reaction… That they’re still talking about Anderson’s bat flip 3 weeks later is crazy tho… I wanna say bc Anderson is a much better player than Dietrich, but the real reason may be something else…

    Hi Grey,

    First my apology for the very difficult question:

    I am having Travis Shaw as my only 2B, and I have enough of him. Do you suggest me to drop Shaw for any of the following 2B?

    Odor, J.Peraza, César Hernández, Profar, Schoop ….

    I know it’s a difficult one……

    • Donkey Teeth

    Love this time of year. It’s when things really start to settle in. The Chris Sheltons of the world start to fade away, and the cream rises to the top.

    Benintendi might be boring on a daily/weekly basis, but .285/20/20 with 100+ runs and 80ish RBIs will make him a top 25 hitter at season’s end.

    To those who’ve been concerned about Wheeler – he has a 3.00 ERA and 1.18 Whip over his last 5 starts. 38 Ks and 2 HR allowed over 33 IP. Averaging over 97 mph on his fastball.

    Good observation on Hendricks. I compared him to Greg Maddux in the preseason. Doesn’t throw hard at all, but his pitches move like wiffle balls when he’s on. Great command. Super high floor.

    Remember who singled out Pence as a zombino this offseason, and who scoffed at that suggestion? The gangly manbird has some life in him yet.

    Odor is horrible. Still hasn’t gotten it. Cut bait if you haven’t already.

    Muncy is a .260/35/90 player who’s on pace for slightly better than that after yesterday’s game. People are low on that? Buy.

    • Mike says:

      I got Odor for free off the wire. I’m going to stash that stank in case it heats up?

      • Big Magoo

        If you have the bench space, go for it. There are probably better stashes available though.

        (link)

        Since the start of 2017, he has a .220/.281/.399 slash line. Free swinger, K-rate well north of 30%. extreme pull hitter, extreme uppercut. If anything, he’s been regressing.

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:
          (link)

          I’m not defending him as a real life hitter. Just saying when he gets hot, he gets really hot, and you’ll want to own him in fantasy. See June-August 2018…

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            Agreed. He’s going to get scorching hot for a spell, but he’s not worth draining you at the position until then. If you can carry him on your bench, that’s ideal.

            • Big Magoo

              Big Magoo says:
              (link)

              The problem is that you don’t know when he’s going to get hot. Even then, he’s a drain on average and always has poor counting stats. Struggles against lefties and on the road. To me, he’s virtually unrosterable in a weekly format like the NFBC or a format with shallow benches like the RCL.

              • Cram It says:
                (link)

                Oh totally agree. That’s what I was saying, he’s basically only rosterable in leagues with deep benches so you can plop him in during his hot streak, whenever that is.

    What a report, awesome to the max!

    a. In other news, the 2B for your World Series Texas Rangers has come out with a new cologne. The name you ask? Eau d’Odor, of course. Don’t be fooled by the name, it actually smells good.

    b. In a 5X5 RCL, who do you like ROS?

    1. Gibson
    2. Peacock
    3. Eickhoff

    c. On Tuesday I dropped Skaggs to pick up Pablo Lopez. My leaguemates were like whatever, but I was like Grey said his peripherals weren’t pretty, injury-riddled career and x-FIP concerns. Then, I read my boy DT’s top 100 pitcher report (sorry read only, did not leave a comment because I am a donkey stalker / voyeur, making me a donkey pedophile) where Pablo Lopez was ranked above Skaggs AND Lopez has made some good strides of late. Now this confirmation, gives me a boost of confidence. Thanks, mensch. Sorry for stalking only DT.

    d. Dodgers so hot, I would take LAD and the team over all night long. That’s 5 games in a row where they have a different player going 3/4…That is the definition of a hot-hitting team AND like Ozzie Smith used to say hitting is contagious (Of course, he never said that.).

    e. Now that Willans and Castro are injured I finally have Mitch ‘My Bitch’ Garver with a clear path to that love square I was telling you about – Me, Garver, Castro and Phegley. So, don’t muddy the waters, please.

    f. Ha on Font, his font after the start went from Times New Roman 12 to Courier International 6.

    Grey & DT-

    I have used 25/100 moves this year, is Gibson and Eickhoff worth rostering ROS or are they just streamers? Would you cut any of my current guys?
    It’s a 10 team 8×8 H2H league.

    I currently own : Corbin, Strahm, Darvish, Happ, Montas,
    Buehler, Caleb Smith, Marquez, Odorizzi,
    DeSclafani.
    I appreciate your input, thank you!

    Not enough Shaw questions. Oh Boi! Holding him for now in a 10 team H2H. However, would you favor DJ. Jazzy Jeff LeMahieu over Shaw.

    I also have Chavis, and there’s talk that the BoSox may send him down to Triple A to work on his Outfield defense.

    I have Acuna on my team, and everytime time he smacks a HR I find myself going Hakuna Matata, from the Lion King.

    Thanks.

    The Athletic did an analysis on strength of opposition to gauge hot starts: Boyd’s opponents were ranked average despite the meh team names listed.

    I got 99 problems but an Eickh is one! Check Eickhoff in Yahoo leagues since he’s hidden under PITCHER (somehow not a SP). Folks have been having a hard time finding him.

    How do you feel about Sano making that very delayed breakout you called for a year plus ago?

    • Eric the Waiter with Hands for Hands says:
      (link)

      he got his SP within the last 3 or so days, if you werent waiting for that specifically but were in a league with ONLY RP or SP somebody beat you to him likely. i myself forgot to do this even though about a month ago i had a specific thought to make a note of it. drat on me. he wouldve shown up long ago if you are in a league that DOES have P only slots.

    • Daniel Moran says:
      (link)

      Also FWIW: The Yankees broadcasters were calling out what looked like pine tar under the bill of Kikuchi’s hat. Apparently neither team gave a shit but something to keep in mind.

    In a 12 team AL only Roto league where I am last in saves with only Alvarado on my team would it be unwise to trade Andrew Benintendi for Brad Hand?

    Are you worried that Dahl is staring at a platoon? I know the Rockies were rained out last night but he was slated to sit for two days in a row (both against lefties)… or are they just babying him a little for health reasons?

    If he is on the strong side of the platoon is he more than a streamer in 12 team mixed leagues?

    I own a lot of shares! The Rockies are maddening.

      Also, head’s up for Razzball guys looking for relief innings for K’s and ratio help, seems like Felix Pena on the Angels is going to come in after an opener (according to the beat writer). A pro-move in a starts cap league would be to grab him.

    Good morning Grey,

    Got the following trade:
    Give: Arenado
    Get: Rendon + Snell

    H2h Leagus, 3 keepers
    avg, obp, run, hr, rbi, sb, tb
    w, ks, era, whip, sv, qs

    C – Chirinos
    1b – Hosmer
    2b – Shaw

    SS – Story
    OF – Acuña, Mazara, Dahl
    UTL – Nelson Cruz
    BN – Anderson
    DL – Austin Meadows
    DL – Gennett

    SP – Glasnow, Kyle Hendricks, Happ, DeSclafani, Wacha, Pablo Lopez, Gio Gonzalez, Lynn
    RP – Newcomb, Hicks

    I have always have a soft spot for Arenado since I drafted him RD 16, 2014.
    At the same time, if Hendricks and DeSclafani keep pitching good, and Happ rebounds, I might not need Snell.

    1. Should I make the trade? Arenado for Snell + Rendon?
    2. ROS Mazara or Meadows?

      I was thinking about this the other day – I’m wondering if part of the player page, they can display comments involving said player’s name, so if you search “Travis Shaw”, you’ll see 10000000000 comments asking some variation of whether to drop and they’ll be able to see that the consensus is to hold.

        oh my dear god this would be awesome for betting purposes, if nothing else.

      • knucks says:

        I think that’s a cool idea but prob not worth the effort and it could maybe slow down the page. When I want to get Grey’s thoughts on a player, I just CTRL+F on his most recent couple of posts. Its clear that not many fantasy baseballers know how to use CTRL +F or are maybe just much more casual players than us.

          • Dave D says:

            Yeah, sad but true. Many people cannot write or add without their phone. We are sending our kids to Catholic school in part because they still use traditional teaching tools (pencils, paper, books) whereas the public schools have kids work and do homework primarily on tablets. Then everyone complains kids have ADHD and are depressed from too much screen time.

        That’s a good idea. I don’t know how that would be made possible, but the end result is convenient.

        • knucks says:

          But Grey will still get the 10K Shaw type of questions though. So speaking from Grey and Rudy’s point of view if I can, I can’t imagine its worthwhile.

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Actually, this would be good if you’re looking to target a guy in a trade, bc some people (not you) might not realize how badly some players what to be dropped

        • William Hung says:
          (link)

          You can get real fancy with it and introduce some Machine Learning cause all comments here regarding players are 99% of the add/drop variety so you can consolidate the comments into Add/Drop classification and see how high the interest is – then the person can dig deeper and maybe see “x” number of comments regarding the player. So in this scenario you’d have “Travis Shaw”, you go to his player page and there’s an index that shows his Add/Drop interest is very high and you can then click through to dig deeper into how frustrated people are with him and try to find a buy low opportunity. Whereas players like Mike Trout or Acuna will have a low Add/Drop index because nobody is ever asking about them in terms of Add/Drop

              Definitely not, but implementation should be fairly easy since I believe you already have the comments stored somewhere. Hit me up if you want to explore this idea more.

              • William Hung says:

    In a 12 team H2H league so only about 1/3 the way through our season. I am usually very patient but this team is testing that. In 9th place due to the brilliant drafting of guys like Aguilar, Inciarte, Myers plus Trea’s Injury did not help. My team and questions below:

    Ramos
    C Santana, Turner, Chavis (sell him high?)
    Albies, Segura, McNeil (Trea when back)
    Hoskins, Acuna, Winker, Inciarte, Mazara
    DH: Aguilar, Myers or A Jones depending on who is playing (need to thin the herd)
    Carresco, Strasburg, Berrios, Bieber, Hill, Kikuchi, Castillo
    Neris, Parker

    1. I grabbed Hill and Kikuchi yesterday thinking I could trade one of my other solid pitchers for a bat and RP. Having those two I hope gives me the depth to do so. Hate to trade for relievers but they were killing my ERA and WHIP. I have too many mediocre OFs as well so maybe a package…3 for 2?? Inciarte, Myers and Jones may have some “name” appeal. Do you have agree with trading a Bieber or Castillo with one of them or do I hold on to this group? Marte owner likes Carresco so maybe something there.

    2. Updated RP wire options include: Romo, Braiser, Strop, Jackson, Robles, Kelley, Givens. If I don’t trade for a closer, who is the add, who gets dropped? If Strop is back in ten days, I could see adding him given Morrow’s issues but unsure of Strop’s situation.

    3. If no trade is consummated, do I drop A Jones or Inciarte (or both)? Wire options include:
    RPs listed above. Braun, Peraza, Profar, G Polanco, Tapia.

    4. Or should I start studying for my football draft ugh

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      1. Depends who you cant get for them

    Yeah, we don’t want to give Assmunch too much credit for batting Fletcher leadoff the past four games. It took an injury to LaStella to open up the opportunity. One week ago he rode the pine 3 of 4 games. So, I have had him benched everywhere for the past few days. Of course this happens. At least I didn’t drop him. He will score a tonof runs if he stays there when Upton is healthy and Shoehi shows a little more.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      what kind of line would i get betting that if STELLA does not go DL here (or LAA borrow from WAS and just wait till he is like 8 days injured to DL him) fletcher is not leading off in like 34 days?

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        that is 3 to 4 days not 34 days.

      • Dave D says:

        I dunno, but predicting Ausmus is like farting in the wind. I’d prefer farting in the wind. Fletcher leading off is way too sensible.

    • Grey

      • Dave D says:
        (link)

        Shockingly I looked at today’s lineup at Fletcher is still leading off in LF and LaStella back in at 2nd hitting ninth. Fletcher has one more game to go to qualify as OF in NFBC.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

              not much in some instances, metheny had i? pretty sure about 2 total years of coaching one of his kids (roughly age 10-12 at the time) in baseball before he got the STL job for a while. one thing he did for sure is look as IF he knew what he was doing for years, look the part i guess works a lot of the time for some orgs. of course for at least 2 str years minimum his bullpen usage was actually WORSE than monkeys throwing darts at names (not kidding, baseball prospectus proved this a few years ago, you can probably look it up) as to who he would put in.

  42. Bill Buttlicker says:
    (link)

    I’ve owned McNeil for most of the season and love watching him play, but he really doesn’t give my team too much in terms of counting stats. Would you drop him for Profar? Thanks!

    • Bull in a Chinese Restaurant says:
      (link)

      mcneil the guy with the .910 OPS, awesome plate skills and 31 RBI + runs in 132 at bats (admittedly that is not good at .234 per at bat) vs profar the guy with the .586 OPS (that one even surprised me, i figured he HAD to have at least a low .600 right) and 33 RBI + runs in 125 at bats (also not great .264 per at bat); this becomes a question when the latter guy has a total of 2 consecutive days that went well (3 if you count 2 singles on may 5th and arguably has had an ENTIRE total of about 4 maybe 5 days of the year that were good days including the last 2-3). also by some metrics mcneil has better scouted speed than profar and at the very least he attempts more steals for sure.

      – a spot to recall probably greys best line of the year back when some twits were ¨worried”about suarez and how he was hitting .192 after like a week or less. something along the lines of ÖH YEAH BUT I REMEMBERED I AM OLDER THAN 4 DAYS OLD!”

      – dont need a long memory but longer than 3 days might be good.

      • Bill Buttlicker says:
        (link)

        Point taken—was asking because even in the middle of an awful start, Profar still has more HR, RBI, and steals than McNeil (and a comparable number of runs and walks). Might not make Profar the better ballplayer, but it could make him a more valuable fantasy asset, especially since he’s eligible at every infield position, at least in my league

        • Bull in a Chinese Restaurant says:
          (link)

          i wasnt saying don´t roster profar, esp in deeper leagues due to that positional stuff for sure, but what you are saying speaks more to why people should be in OBP/OPS leagues, where by far the better hitter has more value (to this point anyway). the only reason this is even kind of close is the luck stats in total are nearly identical and profar wins on a per at bat basis.

          • Bill Buttlicker says:
            (link)

            Yeah, definitely don’t disagree with anything you’re saying. I don’t get to make the rules in my league tho, and we don’t use OPS, so I figured it was worth asking ¯\_(?)_/¯

            • Bull in a Chinese Restaurant says:
              (link)

              well in AVG only leagues i would be quite sure due to the LARGE difference between their AVGs mcneil would be more valuable as well, .234 RBI + runs per at bat is not that much worse than .264 per, esp since mcneil has more total at bats to go along with it. profar doesnt pump out large amounts of HRs or steals here. and he often has hit in garbage part of order too (so those RBI + run bump so far might disappear later, whereas mcneils’plate awareness/hit tool should keep him in at least decent lineup slot)

      unless you start a whole lot more people than normal leagues in an 8 you do not need to hold anybody except absolute superstars that might be cold (votto has not been a great fantasy hitter since 2017, go actually look at his stats since); and really hot players or at least upside guys. votto i would drop for probably every one of those, but not to hold them forever either.

    I think you can take a victory lap on JoRam. I listen to a ton of fantasy baseball content and you were pretty much the only one with him not only outside of the first round but top 5. I know it’s still early but you might as well take one’s for, Baez will regress (heard that over and over), Yelich will regress (HR to FB rate DESPITE being at Miller Park!!), Mondesi top 20 which nobody had with the exception of maybe Scott White and finally your annual don’t draft a SP in the first 3-4 rounds lap.

        What about Merrified v. JoRam?

        Grey doesn’t seem hot on JoRam, because of his 1/2 season plus this season slump. Projections on Razzball still show him to produce great numbers, which is confusing based on how he has played for the last 4-5 months. Why do you feel better about him?

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:
          (link)

          I don’t love JoRam either. He was my #15 player coming into the season and I still have him in that range. I don’t see him hitting less than .250-.260 with 25-28 homers on the season. That means he’ll have to hit .265-.275 with 22-25 homers the rest of the way. Even over the brutal first month he still stole 9 bases. He has hits in 6 of the last 7 games, I think he’s starting to come around.

          I’m not sure Bryce hits more than .250 this year and it doesn’t seem like he’s going to contribute many steals….

            Yes two offered deals are Moose or Anduar for Bieber and a 2nd OR Moose or Andujar + Robbie Ray for Bieber, Murphy and a 2nd.

    Healy’s numbers may not be great but they are comparable to if not better than guys like, Puig, Harper, Shaw, Cano , Belt, Votto, Mazara, Santana, Alonso and Cron to name a few.

    Todd25 says:

    Further support for Donkey Teeth on the Kikuchi bandwagon… I happened to watch his start yesterday too, looked to be the very definition of “crafty”. Kept all the hitters off balance, forced a lot of weak contact, mixed location speed and movement… yet didn’t seem like he was on his A-game. Was off balance himself some and several pitches got away from him. The big takeaway – that 60 grade curveball! reminds me a lot of Kershaw’s (both lefties) and the velo difference between the curve and his fb is ~18mph which is about the same as Kershaw. The rest of his pitches were less dominating, but that curveball is special.
    Batted ball stats that stand out:
    GB/FB 1.40, LD% 19.6
    under the hood stats:
    7.08 k/9, 1.86 bb/9, 0.93 hr/9, ERA and FIP nearly identical.
    Doesn’t walk anyone, gets a lot of grounders and weak contact… nice.

    • dingo37 says:
      (link)

      but will he play enough to justify a roster spot? is he a must start or matchup play? will there be weeks you cant start him?

      • Coolwhip

        Todd25 says:
        (link)

        Personally, I’m cyclops’ing him for stream matchups in shallower leagues and comparing him to who i have in the backhalf of my starters in deeper leagues. If he’s starting to find more consistency, then the Ms will def keep sending him out there, and he could move up my list.

        • Coolwhip

          Todd25 says:
          (link)

          but i do think his innings will be monitored, as this is his first season in mlb, so every few starts he could be used as an “opener” like they did few weeks ago.

            I listed 29 OFs so if he’s in a 10 team league with 3 OF spots, he pretty much listed EVERY OF on every other team other than his own

    Grey!

    You know Baby Seal was chasing down Strop after that last appearance!! Told u that guy was sucking wind! Haha.

    Quick random question, if you had Soto, would you trade him when he gets healthy for a Bauer or Sale?

    I have Franmilili, Yeli, Pham, Judge on the IL; Senzel and Cruz at Utility in a 3 OF, 2 U, 4 bench, 12-team H2H 5×5 league.

    My pitching has been pretty good despite not drafting anyone early. But figured may be worth getting a high upside arm like that if the owner bites, and feel good w/ what I have already at OF.

    Thanks,
    Baby Seal

    • Grey

      me guessing this guy here is the same one who has been around every few days spouting this stuff. if it is actually a real thing and you are actually interested in showing it to BE real link. this might NOT be some weird trolling, but unless/until proof the old quacks like a duck, swims like a duck, tastes like a greasier turkey¨ etc. i would not have even put in any effort into looking up pianoman or whoever is being mentioned, but hung did below. i am curious if it is real though, as shandler showed up to make himself look like a giant idiot when grey showed up to make fun of how horrible some of the long time so called experts really are for like over a decade while they also wouldnt even make any mention of how badly grey str up destroyed them for what like 2 of the last 2 years or something? the last thing shandler even has left is having his name attached to that yearly book (which is good).

    Hey Grey? Can you explain the Tildaddy reference to me? I’ve been too proud to ask for a year and a half, but now that I own Acuna everywhere, it’s driving me nuts. It’s making my merkin tremble. It’s kind of like when I listen to B*tch Betta have my Money. Love the song, but I can’t make heads or tails of it. Is he a prostitute? Who knows? Rap Genius certainly doesn’t.

      On top of his N is an tilde — he is the greatest owner of a Tilde so he is Tildaddy — then Tildaddy becomes “Tildaddy says you can go out with your friends” It’s all very mathematical

        obv season is not that deep BUT rudy needs to get props at some point on j.polanco. his OPS rater LOVED polanco (i mean like many dollars higher than ADP would indicate), easily at least 150 spots higher ranked). i went by rudys OPS rater mostly for those leagues and he sat at top of my board for many many rounds (more than braun every year, or mcclutchin) and i still got him in probably nearly every 16-20 teamer quite late.

    Traded Dahl, H. Dozier, Parker, and Ryu for Flaherty, Castillo, and Yates. Dahl and H. Dozier were bench/platoon bats and with Ohtani coming off the DL I wanted to free up a roster spot. I feel like I got the best player of the trade (Flaherty) and it added to my SP depth in a 12 team H2H.

    Coming into the season I was a bit higher on Dahl than others. I guess I discounted his injury issues. But even when healthy, he’s got some Coors covered warts. Ryu looks legit.

    What do you think of Castillo for ROS? He’s currently the #8 SP per Yahoo for my league’s settings (QS). Top 20-25ish SP?

    Next items on the agenda: figure out what to do with McHugh and E-Rod… Gibson is on the waivers, drop McHugh for Gibson?

    Thoughts on Trea Turner or Lindor as better keeper over the next 3 years?

    I ask as Im considering trading one for Trout and Wade Davis (where Trout cannot be kept). I can also only keep 5 next year and I have these 6 to choose from: Turner, Lindor, Wander Franco, Arenado, Paddack and Rizzo. I was thinking of unclogging my SS jam next year by trading for Trout and a closer this year. Sounds complicated but appreciate the feedback.

CUBS are doing odd stuff with theirs. today they left M2 in for 5 innings (albeit they know the MIAarlins are pretty much his training camp), left chatwood (him of the worst BB rate in the history of MLB last year in that many innings and hasn’t ever been good) in for a very high leverage spot yesterday. kintzler/cishek for short term and i’d bet sire of sandwiches is back down there shortly (he’s always had better stuff than either of those 2 and has looked good in his first 2 appearances back) before strop is back.

    oh dear god i was JUST this too late to the party of finding ?indy-outward”in CHI town news while playing dervish in TONS of spots, at least some of which i do not need him today. yikes, every little BB tilts towards that ugly negative freeroll edge of cliff.

          what kind of line can i get that darvish will have a no hitter BUT with at least 6 BBs and at least 2 unearned runs

              well otani is the ticker tease here (still his best day so far), but how many of us can say we:
              1. own bour (since it’s a 30 team league)
              and
              2. actually played him ONLY since it’s a short day (HEHEHE)

              deep dive on just how many strikes of darvish’s were called balls and how many outs got screwed such that he couldn’t get to 5 innings
              97 pitches
              1st inning (1 pitch called wrong, didn’t cause a BB though)
              2nd = (1 pitch at least half in zone called ball, one pitch after a BB)
              3rd = (5 strikes called balls, 3 in anderson at bat alone, led to 1 BB to him, also we see our ONLY instance of ball called strike in first at bat of inning)
              4th = (last pitch of o’brien BB at bat at least 2/3 in zone, 3 other strikes called balls, lead directly to him walking a pitcher)

              so that’s 97 pitches, 10.17 incorrectly called balls, 1 incorrectly called strike, leading to directly 2 extra BB’s. a guy as wild as darvish doesn’t also need this shit. wonder how often this occurs, as i don’t usually notice this many such to go into all of it, plus i wanted to actually SEE how wild he was by looking at it.

                  the wildness for sure, esp this year. doubt he gets over 10% of his pitches called wrong normally though (and 10-1 in the bad direction for him)

                      just realized something else. it was the backup catcher. without doing some extra stuff on that exact ump today a very easy answer is that this exact backup catcher is really really horrible at framing. meaning umps (or at least this one, once) are VERY heavily influenced by framers (with assumption that most other catchers are better framers than him). more than i’ve ever read for sure if true.

    – and i was about to whine about carrasco getting rain-screwed out of probably at least 2 more good (hehe, they always COULD’VE been bad of course) innings, but i think for complete games leagues he somehow got one of those in 5 innings. which is pretty sick. but none of my leagues like that do i have carrasco in.

        I got a 2 for 2 offer instead. He wants Harper and Josh Bell and I would get Bryant and Tatis. Do I pass?

    What do you think of Felix Pena? Watched him today he looked good. K/9 around 9 right now, I think whip is below 1, ERA 3.2 right now. Seems to do really well with an opener in front of him. Anything more than a streamer here?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I like him, but streamer when he comes into the 2 IP or later

    I asked earlier about moving on from shaw. My backup is McMahon. He is 0 for 5 today and col put up 12 runs. That’s what I have to work with. The only option on FA is chris taylor. He has been playing more now and doing better but not sure how secure his spot is. Thanks

    Is Tucker going to be a starter or get sent down? SBs is a weakness.

        Would you prefer to keep meadows or robles? If either was an option.

    Joe Musgrove turned out to be fools gold. Screw any analytics or talk of different types of pitches. Someone who knows nothin about baseball could tell you:

    1. He throw soft
    2. It’s right down the middle

    apparently duplantier is up again but not for starting. NL only QS over wins godley or kingham (just lost matz, added kingham). SON and FIP indicate holding kingham. duplantier already stashed in this.

    Brewers are facing Quintana, Hamels, and Lester this weekend. Shaw’s ownership % is at 57% – I honestly think he’ll fall below the 50% ownership by Monday. I think you should go ahead and include Shaw in tomorrow’s Buy/Sell…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      As a Buy tho?

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        I’d assume so

      • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
        (link)

        he meant the other, sell when he’s still over 50% (or i’m reading it wrong). thought the buys had to be under 50 and the sells over 50?

        • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
          (link)

          i read it wrong then. i was going by his own estimates that his 57% as of now would fall to under 50% well after the buy/sell column (tomorrow). i sure as hell ain’t buying shaw nor cactus jesus.

      So Dahl is platooning with Tapia, another lefty? Only the Rockies organization can pull this stuff and act casual like it ain’t no thing.

    BTW, Ian Desmond and Derek Dietrich are both on the WW. Things haven’t gotten so bad that not only do I want to pick one up, but I want to bench Goldie for either one.

    Sorry catcher question :
    Lucroy seems to be having a resurgence this season . Would you still prefer Garver ? Garver only plays about 50% of the time

      Garver
