Opening a gift, “Aw, geez, Kershaw, you didn’t have to give me your arm.”  That’s Ross Stripling at the office Christmas party.  “Don’t mention it.  Hey, Tommy Lasorda, could you get off my lap, my back is starting to hurt.  Also, you’re not wearing pants.”   I forget if I ever told you — the royal you since you’re wearing that Burger King crown — but a friend of mine told me Lasorda still goes to the Dodgers’ clubhouse to use the showers and likes to walk around naked.  How’s dem visuals!  By the by, I’ve reached the age where I forget if a friend of mine told me that, I heard it on the radio or if a commenter told me.  Welcome to your 40’s, you don’t look a day older than 27.  No, really, I don’t.  Anyhoo!  Last night Stripling did what he’s done all year — 5 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 1.52.  The slightly bizzonkers thing is his peripherals say he’s nearly this good — 11.1 K/9, 1.9 BB/9, 2.63 xFIP.  Don’t love he throws only 92 MPH, but he’s dominating with the curve.  He credits pitching coach, Rick Honeycutt, with his newfound success, saying he told him to throw the curve as hard as he can.  I see no velocity difference in his curve, according to the stats, but stats-schmats, Honeycutt-Schmoneycutt, whatever works.  At this point, hard to ignore the results(schmults).  Anyway, here’s what else I saw in fantasy baseball yesterday:

Cody Bellinger – 1-for-4 and his 9th homer as he was dropped to 7th in the order.  Dave Roberts nurtures young bucks like whoever it was that shot Bambi’s mom.  Sorry, spoiler alert.  By the way, bigger mystery:  who shot Bambi’s mom or who shot Tupac?

Joc Pederson – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .261.  At some point, Roberts fell in love with Muncy and bestowed all his confidence in him, but Pederson has been hitting well recently, though it was coming off a Coors series.

Yasiel Puig – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer, hitting .253.  Pound for pound, the Dodgers might have the best bottom of the order vs. top of the order.  I wonder if Roberts is holding the lineup card upside down.

Justin Turner – Sat out with a sore wrist.  Podcaster Ralph and I discuss Turner on the latest installment of “What the hell did Grey just say?”

Joe Musgrove – 5 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners (1 BB), 5 Ks, ERA at 1.89.  The game ERA doesn’t look terrific for this start, but he looked solid from what I saw.  He was never a sub-1 ERA guy anyway, so not much has changed.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – The Blue Jays said they’ll promote Vlad Jr. in the next month….don’t read after the ellipse….it’ll drive you insane…I’m warning you…okay, you’re insisting…promoting him to Triple-A!  Vlad Jr. and Sr. are gonna be the first father/son combo to play 15+ years in the majors and the minors.  If the always-aggressive-to-promote Tigers sign Vlad Jr. Jr., we might see him first!  Obviously, this is a blow to Vlad Jr.’s 2018, and we might not see him until September.  Sigh.  He’s a drop in most redraft leagues.

Teoscar Hernandez – 1-for-4 and his 9th homer, hitting .254.  Somehow this guy has remained on my 12-teamer since the moment he was called up.  He hasn’t been bad, but he gives me such a case of the mehs I kinda wish the bottom would drop out so I can just drop him.

Kevin Pillar – 1-for-3 and his 5th homer.  Might be coming out of his funk, but he was hitting .077 in June.  I’d say, “Don’t just stand there, Pillar, and do something,” but I’d worry someone would hear me and think I was filming a Mannequin remake with my iPhone.

Marco Estrada – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners (0 BBs), 6 Ks, ERA at 5.29 vs. CC Sabathia 7 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.59.  This matchup was billed as, “Ponch vs. Ate All The Chips.”  Not a fan of either pitcher, but I would stream if the Stream-o-Nator gave its robotic blessing.

Jordan Montgomery – Will have Tommy John surgery, i.e., Jo-Mo no mo.  Or slo-mo Joooooooooo-Moooooooo nooooooooooooooo mooooooooooooo.

Miguel Andujar – 2-for-3, 4 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .305.  Usually hold hot schmotato alerts for guys who are owned in less than 50% of leagues, but was shocked to see Andujar is only owned in 51% of leagues.  Your league can’t be that shallow.

Aaron Hicks – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer.  Hitting near-.450 in June, but could say that about the entire Yankees team, except for Gary Sanchez and Giancarlo.

Todd Frazier – 0-for-4 as he was activated from the DL.  Kevin from ESPN’s Get Him In Your Lineup Department said, “Ever find it weird that it’s sexual harassment if you walk around with a hot dog sticking out of your fly?  I mean, it’s just a hot dog.”

Ervin Santana – Could resume throwing on Thursday.  Just has to get over the hump day.

Fernando Romero – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners (0 BBs), 4 Ks, ERA at 3.96 vs. Reynaldo Lopez – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners (4 BBs), 4 Ks, ERA at 3.42. This matchup was billed as, “Two guys I don’t want any part of,” and you can imagine not a ton of people call it by its official name.  Just me and my Cousin Larry.  He’s a good cousin.

Nate Jones – 2/3 IP, 4 ER and the blown save.  Jones came into the game in the 8th inning, because it was a doubleheader and he was tuning up for the 2nd game.  Kidding.  Got no clue.  Just usual dubya tee eff with a bullpen.  Then, of course, to murk up shizz, Joakim Soria threw 1 1/3 IP, 0 ER and got his 5th save in the nightcap.  Speaking of nightcaps, where the eff is Waldo?

Yoan Moncada – 3-for-9, 3 runs and a slam (8) and legs (7).  He’s cooled a lot since April which is either him thumbing his nose up at Al Gore or it’s just because he was never really a .275 hitter.  Prolly lats.  Instead of ‘probably later” I saved 1.2 milliseconds, though just threw all that saved time away.  Stupid, Grey, stupid!

Madison Bumgarner – 6 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners (0 BBs), 3 Ks as he was activated from the DL.  As fun as it is to think you can trade him away and say, “I got Mad-Bum to give,” like you’re Method Man serenading Mary J. Blige, I’d guess Bumgarner is in the best shape of his life right now.  Last year the random BMX accident cut his innings and this year he was sidelined with a pinkie injury.  Again, another injury that sucked, but kept innings off his arm.  Maybe he’ll be rusty, and I don’t love owning top pitchers, but there seems to be a lot pointing to Bumgarner’s ability to come back to full effectiveness.

Patrick Corbin – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 2.87.  Give him the Razzball award, “Even When He Regressed He Was Still A’ight,” right now.  Just give it to him!

Andrew Heaney – 9 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 1 walk, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.12.  All right, Stream-o-Nator we’re good now.  Not to sound like Murray Chass or some old-timer who bah humbugs a pitcher’s peripherals, but Heaney’s xFIP actually went up after last night’s game.  Bah humbug!  Fun fact!  Humbug is also what termites say when they’re getting oral sex.  Any hoo!  Heaney’s a must own, but I’d be wary in tough road matchups.  Or weary, if you need a nap.

Bradley Zimmer – Demoted to Triple-A.  Late night talk show and sneaky billionaire, Greg Allen (0-for-3, hitting ninth), will take over for Zimmer in center.  Hopefully Allen hits as well as he accumulates money from somewhere no one knows.

Lonnie Chisenhall – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs as he was activated from the DL.  I.e., Lonnie no longer gonnie.

Jose Ramirez – 1-for-4 and his 19th homer, hitting .298.  Steamer projected him in the preseason for 22 homers.  Might get there by this weekend.  I was excited and believed in Jo-Ram, and I only projected him for 25 homers!  Jo-Ram is basically the moment Denzel starts screaming he’s King Kong in Training Day for the entire season.

Anthony DeSclafani – 5 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners (1 BB), 5 Ks, as he was activated from the DL.  As previously mentioned on the aforementioned tip, I’m low key interested in seeing what DeSclafani can do if healthy.  He was solid last time he had his health ducks in a row.

Scott Schebler – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 8th homer, hitting .264, and hitting over-.400 in the last week.  He’s owned in 11% of leagues, which makes me roll my eyes like an owl getting asked if it wants to get some sleep.  Yo, an owl can decide when to sleep!  Hence, night owl!  Schebler is a 27-homer, .260 hitter, kinda silly he’s not owned in more places.

Chris Iannetta – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer.  Terrific, more reason to not promote Tom Murphy.  Free Tom Murphy, you Rockholes!

Carlos Gonzalez – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 6th homer.  At some point, Raimel Tapia is going to get traded and be a star for another team, and the Rockies are going to drop Shruggy the Emoji and I’m going to explode into a fireball.

Addison Russell – Underwent an MRI on his middle finger.  The MRI technician was highly offended.

Zach Eflin – 7 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.74.  After two straight terrible previous starts, I’m now just watching Eflin like I’m at a donkey show in TJ.

Kyle Seager – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 10th homer.  Any ideas what he’s hitting?  Nope, way lower.  Keep going.  Not a negative number, c’mon!  He’s hitting .224.  I own him, and I didn’t realize things were that much of a struggle.

Mike Zunino – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer.  Who’s Zunino’ing who?!

Dallas Keuchel – 6 2/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 4.13.  There was only one Astros starter I told you not to draft.  So far, I picked the right one to avoid.

Sean Manaea – 5 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners (4 BBs), 2 Ks, ERA at 3.59.  Only two Ks against the Rangers?  Before every game, the Rangers promise a good game to “Deer Leader,” at a poster of Rob Deer.

Tim Lincecum – Released by the Rangers.  At this point, his doppelganger, k.d. lang, has a better chance of a successful major league career.

Robinson Chirinos – 1-for-4 and his 8th homer.  Uh-oh, Chirinos!  Also, in this game, Adrian Beltre hit his 2nd homer; Jurickson Profar hit his 4th; Joey Gallo hit his 16th and Shin-Soo Choo hit his 10th.  However, not enough strikeouts for Deer Leader.

Jordan Lyles – 4 1/3 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 4.70.  Someone bid $335 for him in my Tout Wars league.  There’s not enough blinking white guy memes for my reaction to that.

Julio Teheran – Hit the DL with a thumb bruise.  The Reflex here is to think Teheran Teheran has Come Undone.

Sean Newcomb – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.49.  I mean, I like him a lot, but, well, yeah, dur, he was in Petco.

Dansby Swanson – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 6th homer (3 homers in last five games).  He’s been great recently, but Dave Roberts must be ghost-managing, because replacing Acuña at the top of the order has been Camargo.

Freddie Freeman – 4-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .339, and a triple short of the cycle.  Too bad, the fans like those sort of oddities.  Hey, I know what pleases a crowd.  *makes fart noise with hand under armpit*  You’re welcome.

Drew Pomeranz – Hit the DL with biceps tendinitis.  He said he felt it after his last start, but, with how he’s been pitching, I bet he’s felt it for a while now.  That’s right, calling him a liar.  Whatcha gonna do about it?

Jalen Beeks – Being called up to replace Drew Pomeranz.  I agree with Prospector Ralph’s assessment of him, “He’s a 24-year-old undersized lefty with a mediocre fastball, a decent breaking ball, and a good change.  So far in 2018 he’s been simply awesome.  He’s going to get a shot at a spot start sooner rather than later, and could find some re-draft relevancy if he gets a longer look due to injury.  Speaking of injuries, anyone want to hurt Grey for me?”  Aw, c’mon!

Steven Wright – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 1.57.  Damn, Steven Wright is no joke.  I was about to say the Tigers, his opponent, aren’t that great but I just looked up their stats, and they’re actually not that bad.  Don’t fully trust Wright, but I could see the stream in the right matchups.  Check the Stream-o-Nator, yo.

J.D. Martinez – 2-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 20th homer.  Just Dong, because a ball ain’t gonna dong itself.

Xander Bogaerts – 1-for-3 and his 9th homer.  Might reach a career high in power this year, on pace for 24 homers, and his career high is 21.  However (damn, Grey, let me bask in that wonderful!), Jose Ramirez is gonna have 24 homers by June 15th!

Brian Anderson – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting near-.400 in the last week.  Hot schmotato alert!

J.T. Riddle – 2-for-4 and his 2nd homer, hitting .242.  This is far from a reason to grab a guy, but on my most charmed team, where everything I touch turns to gold, I own Jerry Tomato Riddle.

Yadier Molina – 1-for-4, 1 RBI as he was activated from the DL.  Not saying C-Mart also came back from the DL because there was nothing left to fix with Yadier’s groin, but, ya know what, just said it!

Carlos Martinez – 4 IP, 2 ER, 9 baserunners (5 BBs), 5 Ks, ERA at 1.83 as he returned from the DL.  The Cardinals pitchers come back from the DL screaming, “COMING IN HOT!”  Then go skidding off the aircraft carrier.  Then as the plane sinks into the Caspian Sea, the pilot sticks his head up and, “Maybe I needed another rehab start.”

Max Scherzer – 8 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 13 Ks, ERA at 1.95.  Honestly, if he were to test positive for PEDs, I’d still be like, “There’s no way PEDs can make him throw that well.”  He throws better than I can imagine for someone using performance-enhancing drugs!

Matt Adams – 1-for-3 and his 13th homer, hitting .255.  Somehow, he’s out-slugging Anthony Rendon and Bryce Harper, and he’s not playing every day, or maybe because of that.

Nathan Eovaldi – 5 IP, 4 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.27.  “We saw that you threw six no-hit innings your last time out, but we’re gonna have to send you back to earth now.”  That’s ICE on the moon.

Chris Archer – Hit the DL with an abdominal strain.  He experienced tightness in his core.  When is the first known occurrence of “tightness in one’s core?”  I’m gonna say no earlier than 2003.  Imagine someone in the 1950’s saying tightness in their core.  1850’s?  1750’s?  “I think you have gorgeous tightness in your core.”  That’s Benjamin Franklin complimenting Betsy Ross.

    I own Jose Ramirez so im not complaining but has there ever been a more obvious without being jacked PED guy than him? This fat faced meatball is gona hit 40 homers if he can avoid an 80 game suspension.

    I streamed alex cobb yesterday vs the mets and im thinking he looked good enough to let him make his next start for me this sunday at toronto (who has been awful recently). Since may 1 cobb been has much better than his numbers; he was 1 out away from 6 innings on may 12th, which counting yesterday would have been 5 quality starts in his last 6 tries. Not that quality start is a great stat but… You hate cobb this sunday in rogers centre?

        @Grey: cant blame you. its a deep bench league 6×6 with qs and the top owned free agent pitcher available is chad bettis, followed by liriano, lyles and german marquez… so i was desperate and facing a team with a deep staff, took a shot and so far so good. I look at it like this, hes not a 6 era pitcher, fip and xfip both in the 4’s, so the era should correct which means maybe he has a stretch with a 3ish era here? Prob idiotic. I think the jays suck and he has another strong start on sunday. I know, gotcha…

    Morning, Grey. Thanks for the daily write-ups and responses. Was wondering which one of these Closers can be dropped (10 team, mixed head-to-head – 5×5 plus QS). We only start two RP’s, so it seems like I could get some more value from adding another SP (start three), as opposed to having one of these guys sitting most of the week. Thanks, again.

    – C.Allen, B.Treinen, R.Iglesias

    • Succos Baseball says:
      (link)

      @SK: I would try for a trade before dropping one of those 3.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @SK: Agree with Succos, but Raisel is the least valuable if trades aren’t an option

      • SK says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks, guys. I put some feelers out there for trades, but Closers just aren’t quite as valuable (unfortunately).

        Follow-up question… should I even bother dropping Raisel if the WW has the likes of King Felix, Lance Lynn, Chad Kuhl, LeBlanc, Leake, etc…?

    Had a feeling re: vlad based on that narrative the Jays front office has been spewing. I am in a redraft league but we keep for one year only. I somehow don’t think Vlad is worth keeping all this year until September just for next year only. Agree? I do have him in a bench spot tho. I would roster another pitcher if I dropped him.

    20-team league, 32 man roster, 6*5 cats (OPS extra hitting one), we keep 19 each year.

    Hello Grey,
    Great stuff. I loved the Ponch vs. Ate all the Chips! Perfection!

    So, I added Heaney in our Yahoo 10 Team H2H Points League over f’n Duffy, so that was cool. Would you drop Godley for Gibson or wait him out. I really think there’s some skill beneath all that extra baggage Godley calls a body, but I’m not sure. Too late this week, as I’m getting smoked because he has Kluber, Paxson and Corbin and I have shite on a plate, but that’s what it is.

    Thanks much Grey.

  31. BK says:

    The robot hates Mengden today, but @TEX vs Bartolo honestly doesn’t seem too bad. My faith is always in the metrics, but should I roll the dice in a 12 team QS league?

    Also, Melancon looks good first few innings back, and of course Strickland hiccups last night. Controversy incoming!

    Last question, what to do with G Polanco in 12 team OPS 6×6 roto league? I’ve tried selling low to no avail, and he’s just a crater on my bench/OF. OF is shallow in FA, but should I cut and stream? Hard to swallow that I traded Boxberger for him a month ago…

    Two questions, do you see Schoop trending up to his numbers he had last season or was that the exception? And Brand Hand has succumb to this situational pitching trend going on in the league so his save chances are now comprimised. I know SAGANOF but do I trade Hand and pick up closers like a “Bear-A-Claw” who for the time being is not apart of this dumbass trend.

    so they finally announced it… and it turned out to be exactly what we thought in the first place with the impaler. i’m finally catching up on posts, and it wasn’t till may 15th that ralph said anything differing from sept (or august) for him; back in the preseason that was the assumed timeframe. also a link to twatter (back at that time, may 15ish) the TOR fans themselves seemed to indicate this was a known thing (the smarter sounding ones anyway, you gotta wade through a BUNCH of shit to find useful stuff on that twatter, it’s like finding a really nice wedding ring at the dump)

    Im seconding whoever it was that asked you about stashing kang. Hes raking in the minors and has been playing ss. I think hes up by next weekend. Watch him go nuts and put up 20 homers in 3.5 months from the ss position.

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @Willy Mo: doing well in minors or not, i had this thing where i forgot to show just how close kang’s last MLB season was to ceager’s numbers. and ceager, as we all know is way overdrafted, but still valuable (well not NOW, but he had been last couple of years). i went and had noticed just how close they actually were.

        • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
          (link)

          @Willy Mo: this of course is an argument FOR kang stashing. ceager overvalued, of course, but that’s in the top 3 rounds right. plus if leagues ever convert to getting points for say motorboat races (or whatever that beerpong racing drinking game is called) OR points for kidnapping/strangling/generally abusing women in hotel rooms OR points for drunk driving infractions kang is a 1st rounder right

    I have a league mate in a 12 team points league with 3 keepers making me offers for my injured Archer. Yesterday he offered me VVelazquez for him and now he’s offering me LaMahieu and Marco Gonzalez for Odor and Archer. Should I take either offer? Or go after another one of his pitchers? Quality starts is the biggest point contributing factor in this league. Here are some of his other pitchers :

    Bundy
    Wood
    Greinke
    Cole
    Berrios
    Syndergaard

    Thanks!

        (link)

        @Grey: Exactly. I don’t know why he’s offering me something I don’t need. Anyway, would you throw Odor in with Archer for Berrios if that’s what it takes to get the deal done? Or would Bundy be a good step down for a 1 for 1 offer? If I throw in Odor, could I try to get Greinke or someone better than Berrios?

        • Grey

    Grey,

    Quick question. Jalen Beeks is getting called up tomorrow for a start against the Tigers at home. Would you bring him up and start him?

  47. wudaben says:
    (link)

    In a few 12 team points leagues I’m trying to talk myself into who I can drop between Luis Castillo and Hader. We don’t get points for holds and can only start a reliever in the RP slot so with Knebel back I don’t see any consistent value from Hader (I have Treinen also) but in Hader’s brief run in that role he was putting up fantasy mvp type numbers so I’m very hesitant to let him go.

    With Castillo I just fear that I’m going to let him loose and he will turn it around later. Basically I’m looking to make room for Rodon. I’m not 100% sold on Rodon because it doesn’t look like his velocity is back but might be worth a shot. Thoughts on who you would lose first?

    Also, I’ve been watching Shelby Miller’s starts in the minors. While there hasn’t been a gun in use his fastball looks pretty sharp and I’ve seen some quotes about how impressed the team was with his velocity. I know very briefly last year his velocity and K’s were up. His era and walks were also up but there was some hope that he would settle in before he got hurt. What do you think the best outlook is for Miller? Jon Gray type numbers with a 8ish K/9?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @wudaben: Castillo is easy drop between him and Hader — I’d grab Rodon…. Wouldn’t go near Miller until I saw a few games in the majors where he looked repaired

    • Willy Mo says:
      (link)

      @wudaben: i agree on hader but castillo stinks. Hader is like pitching 2 innings of middle relief then resting for 4 days. Bleh.

      three outings ago I was so pissed they didn’t let him go three innings for the save vs the Mets and I think that game Knebel blew the save but the Brewers won in extras. Hader then went unused four straight games. Since then knebel has been good. Hader actually was one out from a two inning save last week but allowed 4 base runners and knebel came in for the 1 out save

      It’s frustrating certainly understand how you feel. I still think I would hold on to Hader unless you really need the roster spot for counting stats. Hader will help your ratios and get ks but he prob only pitches around 90 innings total this year. For him that means around 160ks.

      • wudaben says:
        (link)

        @Willy Mo: The prospects of Hader somehow regaining that closer role or potentially being turned into a starter just seems like too great of an opportunity. If he stays in middle relief he’ll just continue to take up a bench spot for me but I think I’ll hold him there as long as I possibly can.

    Love the write-up about C-Mart, kinda picturing Maverick , and Iceman shaking their heads.

    Wel, prayers didn’t work for Vlad. Dropped him since its mainly a redraft league with 2 keepers only.

    So need another bat: Rank the following free agents for hits, average

    1) Culberson, Atlanta
    2) Olson, A’s
    3) Anderson, Marlins
    4) Peraza, Reds

    Or could stream based on matchups.

      Seems to throw hard, has no Ks in his 1st two starts, and only really two pitches, which usually means bullpen….Seems like an okay gamble, but hitters could figure out he’s throwing his fastball 80% of the time and not much else…Have not had eyes on him, simply going off stats

    Anyways, same dilemma today. My waiver wire warrior from last year is pitching today, Chase Anderson. Could really use points for SP, but he is back to who we thought he was, mehhhhh

    Don’t have confidence in him versus Indians, but surely he will throw 7 innings on my bench.

    The bad news is that I drafted Bradley Zimmer in two leagues. Indians outfield is bizarro. Almost drafted Greg Allen in DC with pick 50 but wasted it on someone who will not even see an MLB at bat this year. Pitching is good but OF injuries got me in a hole on counting stats in DC. Regular team looks good and picked up Chisenhall there as my 7th OF.

    Lets see, besides Brantley there are how many candidates for two starting slots?: Chisenhall, Allen, Rajai, Zimmer, Naquin, Guyer, Melky. That makes 7 in my book. It’s hard to make any worth owning until the purge. I’m guessing Allen makes Rajai and Melky expendable. They have wuite the glut. Any thoughts?

      Thoughts on the Indians? They’re biding their time with Rajai and Mleky getting ABs until someone emerges… They likely want Chisenhall and Zimmer, but Allen for now

      • Dave D says:
        (link)

        Yeah, that’s what I imagined. Looks like Zimmer is the new Drew Stubbs. Lots of holes in that swing but too toolsy to give up on.

        True, i had just read where he had gotten pulled recently because he had walked two batters or else he wouldve had another 2 inning save.

    I’m with you on Stripling. Blah fastball and no real change in his pitch mix/type. He’s probably not a bad starter, but I have trouble seeing him being near this good.

    My Heaney stream was delightful yesterday.

    Listened to the pod. Good work from you and Ralph. Why am I envisioning a scene where you were helping your ex girlfriend run lines for her audition for a part in the Erotic Traveler tv series? Not the movies, because she found them too derivative.

    Hey Grey! Took your advice about not dropping players for pitching and instead traded Moistasskiss for Paxton, have Rendon for 3B anyway. How’d I do?

    Idiot in my league also dropped Archer flat out, is he worth dropping say, Meadows or Caleb Smith for? Already have Syndergaard and Cueto on the DL so he would take a bench space, but both are close to coming back.

    Thank you!

      Nice trade! Lose Smith for him

  76. Wass says:
    (link)

    Grey,

    1. Wasn’t able to get Bell (asked couple days ago about this) but instead got:
    Mazara/Porcello and gave up NickC/Tanaka. Good deal, bad deal, or just totally fair?

    2. Treinen or Cody Allen ROS?

    3. Was thinking of offering a Fulmer fan, Fulmer/Herrera for Soto/Better of #2 above… Is this a good deal for me? Im not high on Fulmer but if he’s still valuable I’d hold on. It’s a 5 player keeper league, 12 team points league. I have 4 set keepers but my 5th is up for grabs. I don’t have a need for SP or OF so this is purely a trade I’d make if Soto is worth it.

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      1. Sounds solid 2. Allen 3. Soto side

    Im torn between the 2, picking up swanson or a reliever?
    Even though i own tim anderson.
    Swanson or Jimenez, Madson, Rondon, Alvarado, edubray, Archie bradly, leclerc?
    It’s a deep league with obp and no holds. Only 11 teams but deep. Keeper too. I would have to drop Murphy and Bader to grab both Swanson and a reliever.

    • Jubaka says:
      (link)

      @Jubaka: or Andrew miller i could drop.. though I still am hoping a llen gets hurt or falters for a while.. I’m still kinda hoping on Murphy too since adsrubel could slump, is slumping.

    In an RCL in need of SP was offered Sale, Semien, & Gibson for my Jansen, Norris, & C Santana.

    I do have 3 other closers in Hand, Vizcaino, & Tepera with Britton on the DL
    My current SP are: Milolas, E Rod & Musgrove with Darvish on the DL
    I would have Smoak, J Martinez @ 1B & CI with Hoskins on the DL

    Per trade analyzer I win the deal by a landslide 48.30 to 34.00
    My only real concern is Sale’s last couple of game …Gibson is pretty much a drop? Just a streamer.
    Do the deal?

    oh my dear god, this is SOOOOO wainwrong’s fault. the young guys see him lying and getting away with it (for a few starts anyway) to stick a job, just SAY you are healthy (in reyes’ case he actually took this farther and made damn sure he got that velo back up to 95-96 on the last 4 pitches, WHILE TEARING A LAT!!!!) to keep his job, albeit for a short time. THIS needs to be wainwrong’s last memory as a SP in MLB, doing this to reyes (or at least setting this exact example anyway), remember that sucker. but with reyes it was so bad that not only did he tear his lat to prove to his coaches he could still hit the velo and should stay in the game, he also told everybody for up to 22 hours after the start that he “felt fine, still feels fine”.

    anybody else get lucky enough to be streaming g.allen only to realize with like 20 minutes till that game started that
    1. chisenhall is back so allen’s job is gone
    2. the king of sagnof was starting for like the 1st time in 2 weeks or something and nab him to stream instead (keep in mind i was quite aware that the king had been pretty bad in his most recent at bats 2ish weeks ago, HOWEVER today was a good matchup AND he’d probably have some extra incentive to prove something to somebody after that much time off)

    if i had the kind of phone that i could get screen shots with, i should might get a shirt for this if youse guys were like closer monkey.

    this is very obviously a deep league situation of course.

    – HOW in the shit is palka, out of all those worst OF in baseball WSOX outside of him(yes worse than MIA for hitting anyway) getting benched against righties yet again. pretty sure the man gets at least 2 bases and/or on base twice per game for at least 7 out of the last 10 games. the other 3 twits have OPS’ in the .430-.612 range (so he’s .450-250 ahead of them) and one of those has a broken back issue on top of this.

    – oh yeah, anybody notice how good hanson’s been with his one at bat per day? only noticed this since even after dropping him DL slot (panik back of course) but in super deep leagues (NL only, 16’s with horrible MI “options”) i held on and hmmm, he’s been more valuable BN’d every game in real life than no small amount of my hitters on those teams.

    Goldy is turning it around and I want to get rid of him at max value. I think when goldy sbs start to dry up in the next year or two he’s going to be about as valuable as Carlos Santana.

    I own Flaherty. Saw it’s 3-0 Miami. Said, “Oh, jeez, I at least hope some of those runs are unearned.” Checked. First thing I see is 1 error for STL. Phew. Looked down at his line. Three earned runs. Is that a sub-set of the cousin of the ticker shock?
    Sucks to be any STL pitcher right now, though, cause that offense is pathetic.

    NL only. have a reyes sized hole, likely best option is another pitcher but whose knows this as of yet (i come to you for that just now). h2h 10 team keep 3 at previous season ADP prices (late season, ADP data culled from september used for round costs the march after), OBP over AVG, net steals over steals, total bases added, QS over wins, holds added. 7 moves per week.

    C barnhart
    1B freeman (3B)
    2B harrison (3B/OF)
    3B longo
    SS gone varnish (2B)
    MI owings (him or wong as far as guys with playing time, wong falling off of even that, 2B/SS)
    CI b.anderson (3B/OF)
    OF (4) harper, marte, nimmo, taylor
    util (1) bader
    BN hanson
    DL rhysus (1B/OF), thames (1B/OF), r-zimm (1B)
    NA (1) senzel

    SP gohara, wheeler (the benefits of the super deep league, you don’t have to search out the rare SON loving value town specials, but of course you start them most/all the time for their shit sandwiches too), kingham, wacha, stripling, guerra, reyes
    RP (4) sera anthony, minter, hand, boxy
    DL ryu, dervish

    best use of the reyes hole: one of
    1. another SP (likely best value): could stream from vargas, suarez
    2. a SP possible holds guy: lugo or w.smith
    3. a 2nd BN bat such that he actually plays most of the time: fowler/sandoval

    separate issue
    question 2: how youse valuing bauers up now (or tomorrow supposedly)

    I have some questions for both Alex Reyes and the medical staff of the St Louis Cardinals.

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @Stephen Lyon: it’s on wainwrong. they were already known for the team itself lying about injuries for a long time in some instances (craig), but now, wainwrong starts the year hurt, literally throws shit WHILE hurt at those saying he’s no longer good due to him “being hurt the last 2-3 years” as if he’s got a platform on saying this, meanwhile we have the youngin’s following him wholesale, if you want a job or to keep a job just lie and say you are healthy when not. you can’t use the “i’m still good except WHEN hurt “when you are STILL HURT and have been for three years.

      -keep in mind though this is light years better than the mess, they don’t even know the basic mechanics of a human body, like at all. STL just covers shit up and for some asinine reason trusts their players when they are lied to. when they finally call in their doctors real knowledge comes out of that. you and me (and most slightly above average 13 year olds that know how to google stuff) are better doctors than whatever the mess have.

    I need your opinion. I have been offered three trades, which one do you think is the best. I would be trading Morton.

    Morton for Stanton
    Morton for Molina & Strasburg
    Morton & DeGrom for Jansen & Kluber
