Since Game of Thrones is out here messing up the last seven years of my life by landing the final season like it’s Oceanic Airlines Flight 815, I figured I’ll drop on you a buy for Ryan of Mountcastle.  What if the end of Game of Thrones is that they take a page out of Lost’s book, but take it one step further?  That’s right, the end of Game of Thrones is we’re the ones living in purgatory by watching another great show screw up its ending.  I might’ve just spoiled two shows in one go.  We shall see!  Actually, we might not because the scenes will be too dark.  As for Ryan Mountcastle, he should be called up any day now to play 3rd for the Orioles, but why do we care?  Thanks, awkward leading question!  This isn’t because buyin’ Mountcastle sounds like a new HGTV show.  “What’s his defense like?” “Like an Italian hill town in Tuscany!”  He has solid power, and should make contact while not having great plate discipline.  At some point in the very near future, he’s going to be an add in all leagues, so get ahead of the curve, like if you had dragons, and knew how to use them and weren’t going mad in the last ninety minutes of a poorly-paced show.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Mitch Garver – He’s owned in less than 25% of leagues and Posey is owned in more than 89% of leagues.  I will now cackle like a hyena until I fall off my beanbag chair that I’ve dressed to look like Giancarlo. By the way, Mitch Garver’s new fan section is The Mitchmen.  Steve Garvey’s were The Bastards.

Mitch Moreland – It was May, 2019 in a parallel universe.  Our president was Kevin Mitchell, who became famous for being on the campaign trail and catching a baby to kiss barehanded.  President Mitchell requested everyone change their first name to Mitch to honor him, our great leader–Whoa, I just had the weirdest dream.  Everyone’s name was now Mitch.  Anyway, back to the Buy and Mitch Mitchland–AHHHHH!!!!

Derek Dietrich – Just gave you my Derek Dietrich fantasy.  After I wrote it, I bat-flipped my computer.

Michael Chavis – Saw someone recently asking if people wanted Chavis or Cano.  They could be close and almost equal in counting stats, but Chavis has easy tilt on upside, so I’m a Chavis man.

Danny Santana – Dannys Antana made me eat my misplaced S a few years ago, but he’s seemed to found his stroke like Billy Squier.

Brandon Lowe – No longer need to worry about the confusion with Nate Lowe and it seems clear which one will end up ranked…DON’T DO IT GREY, DON’T YOU DARE!…Lowe’r.  EFF YOU, MAN.  Sorry, Mr. Al Caps.

Tommy La Stella – The one comment we received this morning that didn’t include Travis Shaw was commenter, Todd25, breaking down Tommy La Stella in great detail.  One of the crazier takeaways:  La Stella’s walk rate is 10%, his K-rate is 5.7% and his ISO is 50 points higher than Trout.  I will now laugh like a hyena for 15 minutes.

Gio Urshela – I Googled Gio’s minor league numbers and Google responded, “Just say he’s a hot schmotato and don’t bother looking any deeper.”  This new Google Assistant is awesome!  Wait, Google Assistant is asking me something now?  What’s that, you want all my identifying information?  What harm can come of that!

Austin Riley – He needs Donaldson’s calf to flare up and I’m sure I’ll go over Riley more in-depth, but here’s the thing, and you best believe there’s a thing, if you’re in a FAAB league, you need to gamble on guys a week or two before they’re called up vs. right after they are promoted.  Right after they’re promoted:  They go for 50% of FAAB budgets.  Right before they’re called up:  They go for a buck or two.

David Bote – Maddon has been playing Bote every day, or thereabouts.  Or maybe that’s *pinkie to mouth* therea-Botes!

Ronny Rodriguez – In his last full Triple-A season, he went 17/15/.291, which is why I was thinking about writing a sleeper post for him this past preseason, but when he lost his everyday job, I nixed the sleeper.  Didn’t want to look foolish, so instead I went with a Daniel Palka sleeper, or something.

Franmil Reyes – How is he only owned in 21.5% of ESPN leagues?  Okay, a little quick math.  There’s 500,000 ESPN leagues, and Klara Bell owns ten teams under different aliases in 100,000 leagues to fill his virtual trophy case and he owns Franmil in 0% of his leagues, which means 100% of all other ESPN owners own Franmil.  Well, shoot, Franmil is owned.  Moving on.

Jorge Soler – Don’t want to inject this with strict logic (ft. Eminem), but Soler’s been a top 25 outfielder on our Player Rater.  No reason he should be available in 80% of leagues.

Mac Williamson – Here’s what I said the other day when he was called up, “He’s capable of 30 homers, so if you need power, grab him.  Not if you need black power, Mac Williamson only sounds like a blaxploitation actor.  Hopefully, the Giants don’t give him the Shaft.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Hunter Renfroe – 50% owned is cut-off and Renfroe is either right there or just over 50% owned, so my B, but you have to own him right now.  Dude’s in launch angle mode on MLB The Show.

Martin Perez – Just gave you my Martin Perez fantasy.  It was written while debating delivery or DiGiorno.

Anthony DeSclafani – I own Tony Disco, and won’t be dropping him after his next start, but Streamonator also likes it, similarly to how it changes its iPhone contacts from “Mom” to “Only Friend.”

Griffin Canning – I could see owning Canning too, but he’s also at the very least a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to Domino’s to say, “I want pizza and good conversation.”

Chris Martin – One quick note about Coldplay and all these other iffy closers.  When you ask, “Grey, I want you to use your mustache to itch my back, but, for now, can you rank Cishek, Coldplay, Robles or Jackson?”  I mean, I would rank them, but SAGNOF is Saves Ain’t Got No Face.  It is telling you there is no difference between garbage closers, they’re all the same shizz.

Steve Cishek – Or as Missy Elliott would call him, “Cishek my gizzard.”

Luke Jackson – Chazz Noir, Luke Jackson and Mac Williamson all sound like they keep their pimp hand strong.  Can’t we remake Night Shift with Chazz Noir, Jackson and Mac?

Hansel Robles – If you were to pass o’er Robles for fear he could go sideways, I wouldn’t be mad, son.

SELL

Tim Anderson – Like Guy Fieri and peroxide, Tim Anderson was a guilty pleasure of mine last year. I owned him in so many leagues last year but none this year and now I want to read The Bell Jar inside a gas stove.  But this isn’t about what a fiasco I’ve made for myself.  Oh, no!  Let’s talk more about you and your fiascos!  If you go to our Fantasy Baseball Buy/Sell tool (yes, we have one of those too), you see Tim Anderson is near the top for Sells (click ROS$ so it’s sorted by negatives first — that means they’re going to come down from where they are.)  Of course, Tim Anderson isn’t this good, but how good do others think he is?  That’s the real question when trading.  That and, can I just hack into my opponent’s team and drop Yelich off their team?  I would go to our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and see if you can get anything worthwhile for Anderson.  I wouldn’t sell him for the licensing rights to action figures from the C. Thomas Howell movie, Soul Man, but I would explore options.

    Any thoughts on Tyler Austin? Any way he starts getting enough play time to be viable?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I think he gets more PT with Posey on the IL, but still not full time

    I might be late to the game, but is Brasier no longer BOS closer. Thinking about dropping him unrelated pieces on the wire (I have Trienen, Neris, Alvarado in the RP department, after Braiser)

    • Grey

      Grey says:

    You think Danny Santana is a buy? Seems like his BABIP is very high and he is due for a regression. Please advise. Thanks.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      He is due for regression but I can see grabbing him for now

    What’s up Grey!?

    Great article today!
    I have Dee Gordon out, haven’t heard the latest on the extent of his injury…not sure if I should burn a transaction on picking up another OF ? Reyes, Soler, Heyward, Renfroe, MAC Williamson available or just hold?

    Thanks! Great stuff as always!!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Thanks Gary! Soler

      • Gary X says:

        I should add that I’m penalized for offensive K’s, Soler has 53 …still go w him over the others?

        Thx again!

          Grey says:

          You remind me of this other guy Gary Z, any relation? I’d go Soler

  14. Trickrey says:

    Mountcastle or Chavis in a 12 tm 5×5 OBP? Really only have room for one.

    And then do you prefer Descalfini or Martin Perez in a QS league?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Chavis — Perez

  15. joeg414 says:

    Heyward or Reddick as a extra OF in a Deep daily 6×6 roto?

      Grey says:

      Reddick

  16. William Hung says:
    (link)

    Dammit – Shaw is 55% so 5% over your threshold… oh well, here’s to hoping he makes it on your BUY/SELL next week! What comes first, Shaw hitting a HR or going to 50% of lower in Y! ownership?

    In other news, I guess I can help the cause by dropping Shaw for a streaming pitching spot and live/die by Senzel

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, lose him

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        Talk about an out of nowhere collapse by Shaw – maybe he gets hot in the 2nd half ala Brian Dozier and at the end of the year his numbers are what you expected…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah could be

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            at his current rate, we’d be betting on Shaw being the #1 ranked fantasy baseballer for like 2 months…

            • Grey

              Grey says:

    So if you have choice between Mountcastle or La Stella…who do you take?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      La Stella

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      La Stella. But be ready to Mount up when he gets the call.

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        Yes knucks!

  18. knucks says:
    (link)

    I’d bet that Austin Riley gets some PT in the OF for Gwinnett and could supplant Inciarte instead of Donaldson sometime soon.

    On a separate note, whatever they did with the MiLB app/website for this year was a mistake. What’s up with nearly every app or platform downgrading UI this year? So annoying.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah not sure

  19. Ontilt1377 says:

    Who to roll with going forward? Vazquez , Astudillo or McCann? 5×5 roto please rank.

    O-5 in H2H 12 team, one keeper hitting, one pitcher. Trying to blow up team and set up a couple studs for next year.

    I’m offering Goldie and Dahl for Betts. Sound prudent?
    Thanks and appreciate the site. Keep the content pumping.

      Grey says:

      I’d take Betts

  21. Cram It says:

    PT aside who do you like more for production when they play, Mountcastle or Austin Riley?

    • Grey

      Riley but I think Mountcastle is up way sooner

      • Cram It says:

    Grey,

    Looking for some post-consumer confidence…

    I offered Harper for TreaT urner and they accepted. TreaT is due back in a week or two and I can make due in the mean time. Solid deal for the long run?

    Thanks!

      Grey says:

      I’d want a Trea

  25. Southpaw says:

    Which stock would you want more in Dynasty 6×6 OBP leagues? Chavis or Alonso?

      Alonso

  26. Joe Schmo says:
    (link)

    I’ve got to make a drop with Meadows coming off the DL. 12 team keeper with 8 guys kept at no cost. Choices are Luis Robert, Dylan Cease, Clint Frazier or Giolito, who’s the odd man out? Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Robert

  27. MondesiMyNewReligion says:

    Grey,

    ROS, bench bat. Clint Frazier or Tapia?

  28. Kruk_Ain't_An_Athlete says:
    (link)

    Is Mountcastle the real deal?
    I only get 2 Minors spots. Mateo and Mercado are in there. I have no room for another “M” prospect named Mountcastle. Is he a “buy” ahead of either of the M boys?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Hold

  29. negatto says:

  30. jdred5 says:
    (link)

    In a 5×5 14 team roto league where I need hitting more than pitching I was offered Y Diaz for Woodruff or C Walker for L Weaver. Neither of these excites me … should they?

    Looking at his roster, he has Dozier. My instinct is to offer Woodruff for Dozier. Better plan? Take one of the other deals if he turns this down?

    Either Diaz or Dozier would fill the gaping hole Shaw is currently leaving in my team at 3B.

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sure, try it… dozier, as long as it’s hunter.

      • jdred5 says:
        (link)

        He countered with H Dozier for L Weaver – do it? My team is below:
        C- Alfaro
        1B- Rizzo
        2B – Villar
        3B – Shaw
        SS – Segura
        CI – Cabrera
        MI – Peraza
        OF – Trout, Dahl, Santana, Mazara, Tapia
        U – Chavis
        Bench – Y Alonso, Mac Williamson
        SP – Nola, Corbin, Happ, Ryu, Matz, Weaver, T Williams, Woodruff, Loaisiga

    “Dude’s in launch angle mode on MLB The Show” 1) That’s a fantastic line; 2) How do I enable launch angle mode on MLB The Show (joking); 3) Renfroe did me dirty (Opening Day – Before A. Judge became A. Judge I rostered both Renfroe/Judge; dropped Judge in favor of Renfroe and well… we all remember what happened 2 weeks later).

    But seriously, in a 10-player keeper league is it just ridiculous to pull the trigger on W. Franco? You would be dedicating both a roster spot & a keeper spot (not counting the zero’s he would contribute) for the foreseeable future, but… considering almost every prospect set to debut w/in the next year or so is already rostered on one team or another I am seriously considering just cutting bait with a back end roster player and/or prospect K. Tucker and biting the bullet.

    Tell me I am not crazy… Or you can also tell me I am crazy.

    Tiny bit of a but low window open on Segura right now?
    He only has 2 Homer’s, 1 SB, and just decent runs scored for a #2 hitter in that lineup and park.
    Thinking of offering my Puig and a borderline SP for him and see if I can get a bite. My Of is pretty loaded and Puig has been riding the pine for me most days.

    Guy Fieri is a guilty pleasure the same way a great burger is. Who’s going home happier, the dude who laid out $250 on a Michelen-star, artfully-plated dollop, presented by a team of waiters and thoroughly explained by Gustavo while you sip house-made sparkling water? Or the girl who spent $10 on Five Guys?

    From everything I can see, Guy is authentically Guy, and Triple D is authentically a slice of America in all it’s bacon-crusted glory. Viva Guy Fieri, no guilt attached.

    Donaldson injury aside, do you think that the Braves would be willing to turn Inciarte (who has been terrible) into a bench bat, move Acuna to center, and have Riley play left?

    That’s a much clearer path than waiting for someone to get hurt.

    I have J. Bell as a bench bat who is replaceable if FA pool. I have Hoskins at 1B and Mondesi and Harper occupy my UTIL slots. I’m thinking of offering both Harper and J. Bell for K. Bryant since it’s basically a Harper for Bryant deal. Stats are similar between the them, but Bryant should hit for a better average and has dual position eligibility. What does the Grey Matter say?

I also picked up Sano cuz i read he is coming back and has a positive attitude and a fitter/hitter bod so maybe he can be cool? I am not sure about these kinds of reports though cuz when I seen picks from last year its not hard to look fitter when compared to that flabby mess. Lowered expectations Miguel Sano #647 if you know what I am saying?

    This may have been said at some point already… but I went through the David Fletcher game logs back through the beginning of April,,,He has hit lead off every game against a lefty starter. The only time he lead off vs. a Righty, La Stella was out.

    Calhoun hasn’t hit lead off since the calendar changed.

    I’d guess Assdunce will continue batting La Stella lead off vs. Righties and Fletcher vs. Lefties.

    10-TM NL-Only H2H 5×5 (OBP)

    Was offered his Harper/Bote for my Bryant/C.Hernandez. I turned it down because I didn’t think it was worth trading Hernandez’s SB potential mixed with some pop was worth the difference between Harper and Bryant. I already have a good overall OBP squad. I know he’s in the BUY column this week, but with Russell back in the mix and Maddon’s love for Zobrist, I can see Bote getting squeezed for PT before Hernandez does. I lack a lot of power, but my guys have been solid lately.

    If he doesn’t try to up his side of the deal, should I revisit this offer?

    Roster:
    CA Iannetta
    1B Rizzo

    What’s good X2 Grey? Got your response on the last thread and you touched upon Mountcastle and Riley in your write-up. I read that Riley is taking reps in the OF as the Braves are getting tired of Inciarte’s lack of production.

    In a 12-team 6×6 keeper league that uses OBP and SLG% on the hitting side and QS and K/9 on the pitching side. My pitching staff is stacked with Bauer, Sale, Wheeler, Marquez, Gausman, Hader, Diaz and Alvarado (I have a couple streaming slots currently occupied by Eickhoff and Chirinos).

    My hitting has issues in the MI as I wait for Turner to get off the DL. I’m not going to list my entire roster, but I’m thinking along your logic in a FAAB league that I need to make a move for a couple of rookies on the next waiver day. I already have an empty bench slot, but I’m thinking of dropping Schoop for Rodgers, Luke Jackson for Mountcastle, and then just picking up Riley. I’d be eating the 2B/SS spot until Rodgers gets called up or Turner comes back, but as you alluded to earlier, I’d rather pay change now instead of significant amounts later. Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Okay but I’d hold Jackson if you need saves… Schoop is whatevet

    Hey Grey –

    Not sure if you’re still around for the weekend, but . . .

    My offense is struggling (shaw, aguilar, puig, etc) and i’ve plugged i holes with flyers. my pitching has been decent:

    SP: Snell, Paddack, Berrios, Taillon, Happ, Odorizzi, Turnbull, Luzardo

    A leaguemate is looking at a trade for either Snell or Paddack. I’m inclined to trade Paddack rather than Snell because of the innings limit that might be imposed. But I’m hesitant to trade at all because my pitching is the only thing keeping me competitive.

    Anyway, he’s offering Haniger, Ohtani, D Peralta, H Dozier (some combo of those). He also has Merrifield, Moustakas, and Segura, among others. Would any of that entice you?

    The rest of my team (12 team, 6×6, OBP, SLG) is
    C-Ramos
    CI: Aguilar, Suarez, Rendon
    MI: Chavis, Ronny Rodriguez, Danny Santana
    OF: Robles, Puig, F Reyes, Verdugo, Joc
    UTIL: K Davis
    Bench: Shaw, Kelvin Gutierrez, Oscar Mercado

    Also, should I drop Ramos (for Garver or Lucroy)? Shaw? Just to clear some space?

    Tanks, as always,
    Jeff

    30 team league with holds added. have an open spot and pannone (who’s FIP is a bit better than his surface stats and seems to get some starts here and there). available are brault (worse FIP than pannone) and these for the last RP slot: d.law (we’ve seen him do well before), 2 MIN guys: magill, morin. and yeah there actually are worse options (some of which i’ve owned, m.wright, wisler, m.feliz)

    1. guess hold pannone over brault (i got r.yarbrough on long term league min contract and can’t stash him since over innings and he’s done well before so can’t drop, so looking for long man with this one spot. magill appears to be the LR in MIN so he could be over pannone too possibly.

    Hey, Grey, how’s it going? Blockbuster trade offer on the table right now. 15-team roto keeper, limit on number of years you can keep players, lose the round in which the player is kept in next year’s draft…

    I give: J. Baez (1 yr left after this one, Rd 8), Moncada (2 yrs left, Rd 10), O. Mercado (2 yrs left, Rd 25)
    I get: T. Turner (1 yr left, Rd 2) & Goldscmidt (1 yr left, Rd 3)

    I’m currently in 1st place by ~30 points with a roster which also includes J. Bell, Gleyber, OZUNA, Rendon, Soler, Mancini, Jo-Mart, Puig, DSJ, Mad Max, L. Castillo, Berrios, Glasnow, E-Rod, Hader, and F. Vazquez.

    Do I need to bring in two top round talents to win this year while mortgaging the future of Bae/Moncada/Mercado, or do you think the team could go the distance with the guys currently on the roster? Thanks for your input, man!

      Can lose Mikolas

  145. Asking For A Friend says:
    (link)

    A week ago you dissed a commentator who was asking about the value of keeping Mikolas. Kinda dismissive of him just for asking. In the two starts since your snarkiness (not sure that is a word ) Mikolas has allowed two runs and 6 hits in 14 innings.

    My question: any one else you can recommend to drop?

      I don’t follow your question

  146. Lucky Dog says:
    (link)

    As long as I live I’ll never understand MLB managers. I’m not sure which is more annoying, the “plug & play” lineup spot guy (“my best hitter is out, so I’ll drop the replacement scrub in the 3-hole, because he’s sure to be just as good.”) or “the tinkerer” who messes with a successful lineup for no apparent reason.

    Meadows comes back yesterday, hits leadoff like normal, has a double, a BB & a HR. So naturally today he’s batting 6th.
    C’mon son.

    NL only with QS over wins, holds added, OBP over AVG, net steals over steals and total bases added 10 team h2h. bader getting completely jerked around now for fowler of all people, gone varnish losing playing time to j.lglesias as well but i doubt i can drop varnish. also losing SP by the load lately
    C molina
    1B freeman
    2B mcneil (3B/OF)
    SS gone varnish (2B)
    3B franco
    CI kike (all non catcher/3B spots)

    OF (4) rhysus (1B), harper, conforto, dyson
    util (1) bote (2B/3B)
    BN bader
    NA (1) a.riley
    SP: mahle, castillo, davies (he forgot the pitching coach left for CIN, or is the last guy getting the jujo of that guy a year later than everybody else is), lester, stressbird, lucchesi, kingham (and an open spot with V2 going DL)
    RP: urias (can go back to SP too), edwards, baez, bearclaw
    DL: k-rob, V2, matz, steckenrider

    1. guessing it’s too early to drop bader/peraza for any of: farmer, mac will, panik?

    2. which pitcher till the first of matz/V2 gets back (i can do RP here and move urias to SP if need be): fedde, j.miller, suarez (or whoever SF calls up to replace d-wreck), vincent, dyson, wisler, erlin, liriano, brault, del los santos (but sounds like c.irvin is getting that spot), font, gsellman, burnes, t.richards/alcantara (good lord these lower MIA SP have turned terrible), kelly, alexander, floro, c.estevez, d.hernandez, brach, M2, winkler, godley. long list.

        (link)

        shit, forgot beede, which is funny since when i added kingham a few days back (matz went out day) it was between beede and kingham, since at that time they were only possible non horrible starters that could actually maybe get QS. that was also the day beede looked horrible (albeit @ COL). i went with edwards over kintzler a few days ago too (when steck went out) as i believe he’ll move over kintzler eventually, had been before and he looks back to what he was before. also if we compare say last 2-3 years edwards is just better.

        • Grey

    Gotta put Glasnow on the IL :(. I already have Eloy there at the moment. My current outfielders include Trout, Dahl, Domingod, and Soler. These are the current starters I have other than Glasnow.

    Flaherty
    Marquez
    Ed-Rod
    Wheeler
    C. Smith
    Porcello
    Ray
    Strahm

    Based on part of my team, would you continue to stash Eloy, or drop him to put Glasnow on the IL. By doing the latter, which pitcher would you pick up to replace Glasnow while he’s out?

    Happ
    Luchessi
    Skaggs
    Canning
    Trevor Williams

        Right on. So I don’t have a bench bat, I will most likely drop Olson in order to make room for Eloy in the lineup. In doing so, which pitcher would you pickup when I drop Olson?

    In all my years of playing FBB, I have never received a fairer trade offer- I give Shane Greene for Buxton. I need SB and he needs SV. Y’all’s trade analyzer has them giving the same value ROS ($5.10). And you had them ranked at 195 and 196, presumably because no two players can occupy the same ranking simultaneously.

    While I’m not thrilled with Buxton, I accepted the offer just to reward such fair behavior.

    20 team dynasty with defensive stats added (putouts, double plays, OF assists, assists, fielding %) and doubles, triples, BB’s, QS, holds, K/9, complete games, shutouts, double plays, relief wins, relief appearances, OBPA. also i’m TEX based and need at least 9 of those (NA slots don’t count, DL’s do) at all times in season. leclerc doing very badly might present an opp here. PIT has leclerc and i have kela/crick/archer (in offseason PIT was interested in kela/archer but liked leclerc enough such to not move him to kela + or archer alone). at most 1 of our 4 BN slots can be used for pitchers (we start 5/7 SP/RP) to prevent hoarding.
    C mathis (1)
    1B gallo (1B/all OF, 2)

    BN (3) stanton (ran out of DL spots, RF/LF), desmond (1B/CF/LF, he might be getting bad enough to drop shortly too), forsythe (1-3B , he’s terrible but backs up a lot of stuff and is TEX, 7)
    DL (5): eloy (LF)
    NA (10): jp martinez, w.calhoun, l.taveras, b.thompson, brujan, y.alvarez, x.edwards
    SP: skaggs, darvish, morton, ryu, desclafani, black sab
    RP: pressly, buttrey, c.martin (8), romo, j.urias, crick, wittgren
    DL: kela, morrow, archer, ferrell (long term TEX DL stash, 9, also had s.heineman TEX stashed till i picked up forsythe)
    NA: h.greene, winn, crouse

    1. trade kela + crick for leclerc
    2. is archer too much alone for leclerc?

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      having leclerc would allow me to do stuff like
      1. not have to drop desmond when eloy is back (could drop forsythe instead)
      2. possibly move out mathis for a catcher that plays every day and hits, there are decent catchers in FA
      3. not have to drop a SP (sab or desclafani) when archer is back if archer is moved out for leclerc.
      4. possibly have a moving BN slot for off day players that could be better than forsythe
      5. long term probably improve bullpen if we assume leclerc goes back to being good

        Well considering my offense, it’d be 100% offensive if they are garbage for another week: Contreras, Bellinger, Mondesi, Lindor, Senzel, Betts, Benintendi (what’s going on with that k-rate????), Dahl, & Story

            It would help him avoid the comebackers too maybe

              On the plus side, Martin Perez chipped in 7 Ks so hopefully he’s OK after taking that comebacker off his foot

    Here’s my current bullpen

    Starters

    Flaherty
    Marquez
    Ed-Rod
    Wheeler
    Strahm
    Luchessi
    C. Smith
    Porcello
    Ray

    IL: Glasnow

    Relievers

    Holland
    Luke Jackson
    Romo
    Parker

    I’m in a 12 team h2h points league. The scoring includes your usual pitching stats including saves and holds. I’m probably going to lose this week, but I’m going to chalk it up to bad luck (Glasnow going down, C. Smith getting rained out today). But it also might be because my opponent has a bullpen filled with many setup men, meaning, a lot of his points cane from holds. Here’s a look at what I went up against pitching wise this week

    Starters

    Corbin
    Fried
    Turnbull
    Sale
    Perez

    Relievers

    Stammen
    Castillo
    Gant
    Hand
    Doolittle
    Trivino

    As you can see, he only rosters 5 starters and a total of 6 relievers (4 setup men/long relievers and 2 closers). Do you think he has the right idea by rostering so many setup men as opposed to staking starters and potential closers? Would you make any adjustments to my current bullpen situation of 9 starters and 4 closers? Do I need to add some setup men/long relievers to compete in this league? Or stick with my current bullpen? Here are some relievers I can pick up of necessary. Sorry for the long post. Thanks for all your help Grey.

    Pedro Baez
    Buttrey

    Trying to get Riley for Jansen on my snakebitten team where at least I am leading in saves by a lot.
    If not Riley.. Conforto at $15 for next 2 yrs plus Touki at $5 for him.. NL only 5×5 dynasty.. or look for better offers. Outside of saves and steals I am suffering in hitting categories and have no starting pitchers

    Not sure why I’ve hung onto Alfaro for this long, but would you swap for Garver in a 12 team OPS league? Even though he’s splitting time with two other catchers?

    1. Now that Ohtani is ‘back’, I’m in a situation where I can only use any two of him, Goldy and Rizzo at any one time.

    2. Still early I guess, but my staff (Bauer, Marquez, Lucchesi) + streamers have not been very productive QS-wise.

    What do you think of trading Goldy for an SP that might be more reliable on the QS front? Or would it be better to wait til Ohtani gets hot and then try and trade him?
