I love me a hot schmotato almost as much as I love me a hot Latina. [Jay’s Note: I prefer the angry Latina.] Yes, it is true, I love Latin women more than fantasy baseball, except this week, when I love me some Eddie Rosario. He’s been a warming hitter looking primed to have a break out sooner than later, and I’m betting my money on this week. I know he has nothing to do with Rosario Dawson but I’ll take any chance to look at her pics and this beautiful gif (I couldn’t put that in the article for fear Jay would of removed it). It’s crazy to think she started her career in Kids and how much of a game changer that flick was. Will Eddie R be a game changer for you this week? I like the chances for that to occur and if you keep reading I will do my best to convince you why I like him, but before I do that, one more Rosario Dawson clip for the road… okay maybe not, the Alexander clip is very NSFW, but you can look it up on your own.

This week the 7.4% owned lest handed hitting Eddie Rosario gets a lot of love by the hitter-tron and I have to concur. Our trash/treasure bear/bull writer the Big Magoo was also talking him up to me the other day and he planted a seed. I was bummed Eddie R was already swiped up in a few leagues I’m in but that doesn’t mean he isn’t available in yours. Like I said in the intro, he is warming and looking ready to get hot. He opens the week with 3 games at lefty friendly Cincy facing all right handers and if he’s playing then he’s in your lineup (the return of Danny Craptana worries me a little). He follows that series with 4 at KC getting three righties and one lefty. His batting average is the same vs. either arm but that is where the similarities end. He only has one XBH, a HR, against lefties where against righties he has 3 HR’s, 5 doubles and 2 triples in only 99 AB’s. I looked at his minor league numbers and he has flashed some power and speed at different levels but never consistent enough to make him a must own for either. What he has always done is hit for good average and at age 23 he is in the developing power stage. If you can get a dong, a bag, some counting stats and a good average then I would consider that a success out of the middle infidel. If you just lost Pedroia or Rendon then I would jump on him for the week.

Last week’s Frankencatcher combo worked out pretty well. Castillo and Chirinos both hit dongs and that’s good enough for me. This week I like Dioner Navarro, he gets 4 games at home and three at Detroit. The match-ups look solid and I would be checking on the daily if he is starting. Josh Phegley is very under owned and when he plays he hits. If you see Mr. Vogt getting an off day or set to DH, then I would grab Josh and get him in your line-up all day any day.

I would like to open this with a moment of silence for Giancarlo. Now take a five minute moment of silence to pray for Grey. He is crushed right now and I spent Saturday trying to console him with the sweet soul hip hop music of Oddisee. (Track 1, Track 2, Track 3.) Please, don’t bother Grey with catcher questions for the next couple of days while he heals. Here is a little hand gif for you…too soon?

Giancarlo’s injury leads to a mix up of the top 10. No, I didn’t just slide everyone up one. I re-evaluated it and have a new order. Harper showing those injury wings scares me a little and I had to drop him a hair to reflect my concerns. At this point I would rather have Frazier, Donaldson, and Nolan before the Grand Dolor. The Homernado has been redonk lately and with 64 RBI’s he has to be top 10. Going into the year, I liked Nolan a lot, but saw him as an 80-90 RBI guy, well opportunity brings gifts and now he is on pace for 110+. That’s the thing with RBI’s and Runs, they are very hard to predict from year to year.

J.D. has been Just Dongs lately and I’m buying. I actually traded with Mike for him in the ‘perts league this past week. Too bad it wasn’t accepted til after the three homer game but I’ll take the three straight days of homers I got. If you just lost Giancarlo and need a power play, I would definitely be trying to buy me some Martinez. If he doesn’t get to 35 homers I’m going to jump out my window in frustration. With an 8% drop in ground ball rate and a 8% increase in his flyball rate his batted ball profile matches the hope I have for him to exceed 30 home runs. Considering he has been unlucky (.316 BABIP) compared to last year (.389) it all looks sustainable and should be a lock for 80/33/90/6/.280.

At a certain point in the rankings you guys…and girls need to understand that it becomes needs based. If you look at 60-80, it leans a little more to the positional needs side and are players less likely to be dropped. From 81-100, it is completely a categories need playground and the value of each player should be based on what will help you win. With all the new injuries this past week a lot of spots opened up. I decided to throw in some hot hitters over the past few weeks to mix it up. At this point of the season you should only be married to your core players and the rest of your slots are for playing the hot hand or SAGNOF! Grey, here are some flowers for you courtesy of Miggy (he took Giancarlo’s spot in the top 100)

          • J-FOH says:
            (link)

            @Grey: the counting stats have slowed but he is still hitting for average and that is where his value is batting in the middle of the order. He hits .342 with runners in scoring position and .354 with men on. Only .231 when bases are empty. He’s an opp player who hits for good average. I like that. I wouldn’t be shocked if he gets to 90+ RBI’s.

              Grey says:

        @Grey: LD and GB are up and FB is down, hard contact down, BABIP the same as last year. I can hope the injury to G will light a fire under his azz, but he has been a massive drag and falls into tht drafted zone you can move on from. On the flip side, if I’m looking to throw a hail mary I would buy low on him

    Howdy mr j-foh

    I mustache you a question;

    In a h2h points league with a weekly roster which bat are you adding for week 13 & beyond ; Adam eaton, maikel Franco, Curtis granderson, Marlon Byrd, Jimmy parades, billy burns, yelich, ozuna, or Brandon Phillips.

    I’d be dropping Brock holt or Josh reddick or both.
    Besides reddick & holt I also have trumbo on my bench too

    My other OF’ers are (we start 4), Bryce Harper, puig, joc pederson, jay Bruce

    My utility is Carlos correa

    My IF is Kris Bryant

    C is Vogt

    1b is Edwin encarncion

    2b is howie Kendrick

    SS is Hanley Ramirez

    3b is Todd Frazier

    DH Carlos Santana.

    — next Q, looks like Hanley Ramirez was sent back to boston for another MRI looks doesnt look good considering he’s already missed a few games so far. In a weekly league are you benching Hanley even if before 7pm Monday he isn’t on the DL, if I bench Hanley I could put correa at SS & utility I could put one of either trumbo, holt , reddick or one of the above guys if I add any

    Thanks man!

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Bobby’s world: sit Hanley and play correa at SS. Grab franco for holt, and I would find a way to get Burns in your lineup for speed

      • Bobby's world says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH:

        Thanks man, who would you be more inclined to start week 13 Franco or burns at utility

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Bobby’s world: depends on the matchup? Is your opponent more power heavy or speed heavy?

            (link)

            @J-FOH:

    Who do you like better ROS for each of these, and is it close?

    1) Machado vs. Kyle Seager
    2 Votto vs. Duda
    3) Calhoun v. Gardner

    • Peter Nincompoop says:
      (link)

      @Stantonless: Machado and Votto are no-brainers. The last one is close, but I’d go Gardner.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Stantonless: Machado, Votto, and Gardner, and unlike the guy below its not even close between gardner and calhoun for me

      • Stantonless says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Thanks guys. I’ve essentially been offered Votto and Seager for my Duda and Machado. In my opinion Machado is the best player in the deal, so I don’t think it’s worth my while unless I can get him to give me a good OF as part of the deal too (to fill in for Stanton). Hence the question on Calhoun and Gardner. thoughts?

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Stantonless: gotcha, so are you going to do it, I like machado a lot and would want the best return possible if i was to move him

  8. Leafs says:
    (link)

    Who do you like short term out of this group (i.e. while Stanton is out)? And does your answer change for overall ROS value?

    Grichuk
    Maybin
    Burns

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Leafs: Grichuk has been hot and has a limited window until Holliday returns. Maybin and Burns are good for speed but you need as much power as possible so i would go Gri. Is Marlon Byrd available?

      • Leafs says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Though I would like to replace Stanton with power, I am also battling for the top of the pool in bags and runs too, so I figure I should just go for the best OF bat available, at least in the short term. We also have a rookie spot so Grichuk and Burns may have extra value because of that. Byrd isn’t on waivers, but he could probably be had in a cheap trade – though because of our trade voting process, I wouldn’t be able to get him in my lineup until next week unlike the waiver guys.

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Leafs: In that case I would go Burns

  9. Peter Nincompoop says:
    (link)

    I’m also mourning in the loss of Stanton in my 10-team H2H Keeper (6×6 scoring). I’m in good shape record wise so not too worried about losing his overall power totals. I currently have Rajai Davis in my UTIL so could slide him to OF and pickup the hot bat. I could cut bait with him and pick up somebody else as well. Here’s who the Hittertron likes for next week and is available in my league:

    David Freese #36
    Carlos Beltran #59
    Mike Napoli #62
    Adam Lind #65
    Eddie Rosaria #Creeper

    Any advice would be helpful and look forward to your article every week. Thanks.

  10. Beltre is no longer on DL? or is he just off the top 1-hundo?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @kR Express: nice catch, I knew I forgot someone

      • @J-FOH: you bet, does he scratch the top 100?

    Who would you drop for Tori Hunter? Rollins, Ozuna, or Ethier?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @evilplan: Ethier

  12. Leafs says:
    (link)

    Another idea for a Stanton replacement. I can possibly get Metz in a waiver claim tonight instead of claiming like Burns (who would be my backup claim). There is a guy in my league desperate for a rookie starter (of which we have to start one, and I already have Syndergaard). I could then trade Metz for one of Fowler, Revere, Span, Trumbo or Yelich.

    Thoughts on whether that makes more or less sense than just claiming Burns? If would also mean going this week with Stanton starting in one of my 5 OF spots because of our trade voting period, but might be worth it for the long run. If so, which of them do I push the hardest for?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Leafs: span or trumbo depending on need

      • Leafs says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: It will depend on what the other owner thinks I suspect. Do you think both are that much better than Burns that it’s worth going a week with an injured player in my lineup? Trumbo has been crap in Seattle but you have to assume he corrects.

              @Leafs: a week without won’t kill you. Try to claim matz and flip either him or noah

                @J-FOH: Thanks! Sorry for the million questions – I appreciate the advice! I’m thinking it’s a better idea to replace the power with Trumbo, but do you trust him ROS? He has been really bad since going to Seattle.

                  (link)

                  @Leafs: he wasnt great in AZ either. But upside is what it is and he has power potential that is rare

    This may be splitting hairs, but I’m not sure Trout is the lock #1 anymore. Goldy beats him in every category. You can’t go wrong w/ Trout but next year in drafts there may not be a consensus #1.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Natty Boh: You could but I won’t. Trouts upside still exceeds Glody, not by much, but it does

    Hey J-FOH any sneaky play @ 1B for next week?

    Or who should I trout out between Howard, Trumbo, Reynolds ?

    I am trailing my opponent 10-9 in home runs this week and losing 6-5 overall.

    Of his 10, Arenado has hit SEVEN of them.

    I need pitching and have plenty of power.
    I give Harper. I get Archer and Tomas.
    Fair?
    Feels like Harp is a bit unreliable if you know what I mean.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Abdoozy: feels fair but I would want a better arm for harper

      • Abdoozy says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Kluber? He also has Gio, JoFer and C-Mart, but I don’t think any of them are worthy.

        Please note — my pitching blows. Alex Wood, Chen, Lester, Hammel, Salazar, Estrada and a streaming spot (yes I know, most of those should be streaming spots, ha ha). So almost anything would be an upgrade.

        Would you offer Harper or Arenado in this situation? He wants Arenado but I’m hesitant to give him up. Especially right now.

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Abdoozy: Kluber or Archer, its about the same

    A few more weekends like this ,Duffy will break in.

    FYI; I just got him in a trade , but it only goes in affect on Monday. I hope he stays hot.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @JoeG414: the power is not real with him. He’s a massive groundball hitter. I would temper my expectations to a .280ish hitter that could hit 3 HR’s the rest of the way.

  20. Chucky says:
    (link)

    Ok to drop Lucroy? He didn’t do anything before his DL stint, and he hasn’t done anything since his return. 220s type catchers could be the norm. I got fooled by his 2014. Grandal an ok replacement ?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Chucky: I’d go with Grandal

  21. Jack says:

    Should I drop Lindor for Matt Duffy?

    Hey, great stuff. I’m in need of an outfielder that steals bases and a better bullpen in a holds league. My SP is ok and I may be able to trade one of them. I was thinking about offering my Lester OR Salazar and Kemp for his Blackmon and Siegrist. He also has Storen, Perkins, Robertson, and Osuna. What do u think? And who else would you target instead of Blackmon? Thanks I always appreciate the advice.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @osnam: Salazar and kemp for Blackmon and sei grist is fair in a holds leaguess if you need holds. I would go after Perkins and Robertson first but settling on sei grist works

    Thank J-foh always helpful!

    5×5 14 team league, roto h2h who do you like better as 1 of my 2 DH’s. Pedro or Duffy?

    I miss Giancarlo already! Along with him, I have Freeman and Rendon on the DL. Am I getting too desperate if I were to accept a trade that gives me Machado for Archer? Is Archer much? My pitching staff is: Archer, Arrieta, Hamels, Greinke, Lester, Liriano, Kluber, and Buchholz. Should I offer a different SP instead?
    Thanks…

      @Oranje: The Archer deal is fair,

    Need to pickup a 2B. Wilmer Flores, Brandon Phillips or Logan forsythe?

      @Mike: phillips for a little more speed or forsythe for a little more pop but tits real close

        @J-FOH: not to push up you, butt if tits real close, don’t be a boob and tell him who will rack up the most stats with a couple knockers and steal some fun bags. He can only take one and say ta-ta to the others. Thanks bra.

    Is ozuna worth owning in a 12 team am I better of streaming his spot

    Hold onto him or rajai Davis ?

    • J-FOH says:

      @Bullssy: stream rajais spot and hold ozuna. I’m curious how he reacts to Giancarlo injury

    Torii is on pace for over 80/20/90 and can’t crack the top 100?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Larry: I had him here before, but he just started waking up the last two days. His May was a monster but had a blah June and a blah April. I think you are projecting ceiling and I would prefer Steamers who has him at 73/18/77/.275. He is 39, will be 40 in July, and I have to consider that as well.

  29. Nelson says:

    Now hold up 1 minute! I would have had Josh Turner in the 50s of this list. He’s a 1 man terror squad right now. I’ll give you 10 Adam laroches for 1 Turner.

    Rosario over Paulsen?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Nelson: Justin Turner is only 3rd base eligible in ESPN. My editor puts in the week so I see how it could be confusing. This isn’t a weekly list, it reflects current and ROS value. By the time we get to August he will be back to platoon status when Olivera arrives. The Dodgers have already said they don’t want him to be a full time player.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Nelson: Rosario

  30. nelson says:
    (link)

    For real though, Justin Turner is better than half this list, and has eligibility at 4 IF positions. I’ll trade you 10 laroches for 1 Turner.

    Rosario over Casear Hernandez for the week? Hernandez has the Brew Crew on tap (pun!). Speaking of Rosarios…Wilin in Oakland this week (DHing?)..should get the pt….would you take him over WRamos? thanks

      @spider crabs: Id go Rosario and Rosario

    J FOH,

    so Stanton will be out 4 to 6 weeks. I have the following lineup (13 team league, 1pt for 1b, 2pts for 2b, 3pts for 3b, 1pt for BB, 1pt for R, 1pt for RBI, 4pts for HR). so it favors power hitters and have B Butler, Hosmer and A Russel on the bench. Butler hardly plays, Hosmer is hurt and Russel wont cut it in the U slot.

    1B: A Pujols
    2B: B Zobrist
    ss: C correa
    3B: C Davis
    OF: R Braun
    OF: S Souza
    OF:J Upton
    U: E Hosmer
    B: B Butler
    B: A Russel
    DL: G Stanton

    the following are on waivers plus others I am probably not mentioning
    Valbuena
    Mauer
    Turner
    Moreland
    A Ramirez
    A Either
    B Burns
    Grichuk

    would you pickup any of these with only 5 pickups left?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Blake: Turner

      • Blake says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH:

        only have 5 pickups for the rest of the year – u think turner is worth it?

          (link)

          @Blake: no

    If we are not lucky enough to have guys on that top 100 list, who would you play between pagan and rios? Rios has seven games but hits 8th so go pagan right? Thanks

      @Dave: toss up and I prefer Rios

    I’ve noticed you’ve consistently ranked Encarnacion lower than Upton. Would you trade e-5 straight up to get Upton, or should I pry for more?

    10 team standard league, looking to upgrade my outfield and also have Rizzo/Freeman
