Off the album, Get Hits or Buy Ryon, 50 Cent sung about Many Men at a corner spot, rapping, “Many men, wish Joe Mauer on me, have mercy on me, many men.”  Then on his other chart-topping song off that album, In Da Club, he rapped, “You can find at my corner slot, some schlubs.  Look, mami, at my corner infidel slot I got X, if you’re into scrubs.  I’m into havin’ specs, I ain’t into a corner man who’s known for his glove, so come give me a hug, if in my corner slot I got Cory Spangenberg’s mug.”  He followed those up with 21 Questions, when he sang, “Would you leave me if your father found out my corner man was scrubbin’?  Do you believe me when I tell you, I thought Josh Donaldson would be more than nothin’?”  Then, after all those, 50 Cent managed one last smash hit with P.I.M.P., where he rapped, “I don’t know what you heard about me, but a Mitch can’t get a FAAB dollar out of me.  No Kingery, no Sano, you can’t see, that my corner man is P.I.M.P.,” where P.I.M.P stood for Please, I’M Playing (Ronald Guzman).  So, Ryon Healy has been one of the hottest corner man over the last week, but beyond that, on our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater, he’s the 17th best 3B this year, in front of Kyle Seager, Longoria, Devers and Carpenter, who are all owned in more leagues than him.  Healy’s also on pace for 28-31 homers with a decent-enough average.  There’s no reason why he’s on waivers in any leagues.  Take 50 Cent’s word for it, Get Hits or Buy Ryon!  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell for this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Tom MurphyChris Iannetta seems to have become the backup to Murphy, which would be the first time in the 23-year existence the Rockies they made the right move, so I have my doubts it’s quite that simple.  I’m waiting for the Rockies’ next ten-day homestand when Wolters plays nine of ten days, and, on the tenth day, they bring Todd Helton out of retirement to catch a game, and recite some Bible verses.

John Hicks – A double catcher Buy week!  Oh glorious Sandra, as she writes her name on standardized tests, it is wonderful time to be alive.  With Miggy out for the year, Tigers will see if John at first can get everyday fits, they ain’t rich, or they’ll cease and desist with Hicks.  RIP Tupac.

Yuli Gurriel – So far this year, Gurriel’s been about as good at baseball as he is at getting the door after the team orders Chinese, but I’d imagine he gets better, and would own him in most leagues.

Ketel Marte – Has been hot this week, and if you own Goodrum, then Ketel fills your top shelf.

Jung-ho Kang – At his latest rehab checkpoint, he’s run into some trouble.  Hmm, not a great phrase to use with Kang.  He blew a .300 at Double-A, but not so great at Triple-A.  Hmm, also not a great turn of a phrase for Kang.  Guess what I’m saying is he seems like a whiskey bet.

Derek Dietrich – Has been more than adequate (Exciting adjective!  Adequate!), but this is also a Hitter-Tron pick, like when it picks up a muffler and touches it in the most disgustingly sensual way possible.

Willy Adames – Already gave you my Willy Adames fantasy.  It was written without using my thumbs.  Take that, monkeys!

Joc Pederson – Already gave you my Joc Pederson fantasy.  I blinked out the words.  Take that, Diving Bell and Butterfly!

Leonys Martin – My favorite Martin!  Which is better than carnitas, which leads to my favorite fartin’.

Scott Schebler – Half of me is surprised that Schebler isn’t being picked up by more people, but, honestly, when people list Schebler with a bunch of other options to pick up, I rarely pick Schebler as their best option.  He’s solid long-term, but short-term he does hashtag fail to raise the pants flagpole.  The one flag it’s okay to kneel for.

Jake Bauers – Already gave you my Jake Bauers fantasy.  I wrote it while shopping at REI for a listening party in Wyoming.

Alen Hanson – With Longoria ixnayed like Fonzie’s orsehay, Hanson should see fairly regular playing time.  Or at least a bit more so, with Pablo Sandoval also seeing an uptick in playing time.

Hector Rondon – No idea if Rondon will get the next save, or Giles.  If I were A.J. Hinch, I’d use Rondon.  Here’s the thing, though, and this might shock you, but I am not A.J. Hinch.

Blake Parker – He’s definitely the closer.  However…here it comes…are you ready…I’m about to drop some truth…where did I put that truth now…Crap, I left it in the car….one second…Here we go!  The truth is The Sciosciapath will never make sense, and tried Parker in the 7th inning at one point this week.

Joakim Soria – The good news, Nate Jones is injured, and was struggling anyway.  The bad news, to get saves from Soria, you have to own him.

Zach Britton – The O’s are possibly the worst team in the majors, and saves won’t come Footloose and Kevin Bacon-y, but Britton should clearly be the closer.

Mike Soroka – Don’t usually like to give starters in the Buy that aren’t simply Stream-o-Nator picks because, brucely, I cover starters all week long, but Soroka’s got me feeling something, I don’t know what it is, I think it’s…*dawning on me*  Love.  “Cougs, I’ve finally felt love!  What?  You did my laundry and had sex with me, so it was more of an appreciation.”

Jonathan Loaisiga – Three vowels together is just weird.  What is that, some French crap?  Well, adieu!  Any hoo!  I went over Loaisiga the other day, click his name and you’ll be magically transported to what I said.  For now, this is a Stream-o-Nator call.  Like the call it makes to a radio station to have them play, “Everybody Hurts.”

Blaine Hardy – This is another Stream-o-Nator call.  “Sometimes everything is wrong, now it’s time to sing along…Oh God, I need another robot to share my life with!”

SELL

Miles Mikolas – In the preseason, I said something like Mikolas can outperform Ohtani, and I drafted Mikolas in a bunch of leagues.  *blows on knuckles, wipes knuckles on shirt*  Ugh, why did I have ketchup on my knuckles?  Wait, that’s blood!  AH!!!  DNA!!!  Any hoo!  Preseason is way in the rearview, and this is about what we could get moving forward.  Mikolas is a 6.6 K/9, 1 BB/9, 3.37 xFIP with a 2.43 ERA.  Love that command.  *puts fingertips to lips, blows kiss*  Wait, that does taste like ketchup.  Ah, I’m bleeding ketchup!!!  Mikolas has emerged as a solid number two to three starter.  He is not an ace.  I’d check the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer to see what you could get for him.  I still like him, so I wouldn’t sell him for a singing largemouth bass that only knows Coldplay.

I just had Carrasco join Stras, Tanaka and Buehler on my DL. Yeah, fun season for pitching. Even though I’m hemorrhaging starters I shouldn’t risk starting Flaherty today, right? SON has him at a 1.

Sorry I didn’t thank you for your previous opinion. If you had a penny for every trade you gave your opinion on you’d be living the good life in the Caribbean on a beach in a hammock sipping a Pina Colada ya think ?? Well here’s another penny for ya. 8 team Roto. This is my present pitching staff. DeGrom. Scherzer. Severino. Snell. Thor and Cueto on the DL. There are quality arms on the waiver wire ie Darvish Pivetta to name a few. Thinking of ofering Severino for either Lindor or J Ram. Currently have Flash in the 2b/ss slot so moving him to outfield for either of these two guys might work if you think my staff is strong enough to do this. Thanks again

I am in 12 team 6X6 (OPS) dynasty league with 30 player roster plus 5 NA slots. Pretty much a 2 2 team race where I am in 2nd. Recently added Muncy dropping Gardner & Pederson dropping Almora Jr.
I could add Healy but need to drop Schoop (Peraza to 2B), Domingo ( he could get traded & play) or one of my 5 DL players with only 3 DL slots …Thor, Archer, Buehler, Dahl, or Myers. This is dynasty so hard to give up totally on any of them.
I figure Healy is also young & worth the add so who is the drop?

I can’t remember one of them. Gah.

Picked up Lasagna. We’ll see what the Yanks do with him, but even if he gets sent back down he’s better than Smoak. How’s Smoak 80% owned still? Everyone waiting for him to break out? Tired of this baggage stinkin up my bench.

Hi Grey, 12 team H2H 5×5 scoring w/ OBP and QS instead of BA and W’s.

This is going to sound crazy (and may still be crazy), but I was offered Lindor, Goldy, and Soria for Arenado and Trea Turner. I’m trying to get him to give me Vazquez instead of Soria, which means I’d trade him Arenado, Turner, and Taillon for Lindor, Goldy, and Vazquez.

My current team:
C: Posey
1B: Olson/Muncy (just picked him up on his hot streak)
2B: Albies
3B: Arenado, Donaldson, and Suarez
SS: Trea Turner
OF: Khris Davis, Rosario, Brantley, and Mazara (3 OF starting spots)
Util: Suarez/Olson
DL: Paul DeJong

SP’s: Kluber, Newcomb, Taillon, Alex Wood, and Manaea
RP’s: Cody Allen, Brandon Morrow, Britton, Blake Parker, and Ken Giles.

I’ve also been offered Quintana for Cody Allen. Thoughts on either of these trades? Obviously Goldy has been heating up lately, and Lindor has better hitting stats than Turner. Arenado is a stud as usual so everyone is trying to trade me for him. Would you give up two hands down first rounders at the start of the season for Lindor and Goldy, or do you think Turner will come around with his bat? Please let me know what you think when you have a chance. Appreciate your help and hope you have a good weekend!
Thanks

Hi Grey. Trade question for you. 12 team H2H 5×5 league with OBP and QS instead of BA and W’s.

I’ve been offered the following: Goldschmidt, Lindor, and Soria for Arenado and Trea Turner. I’m trying to get him to trade me Vazquez instead of Soria, so I’d give up Taillon in that case. My team is as follows:

C: Buster Posey
1B: Matt Olson / Max Muncy (just picked him up on his hot streak)
2B: Ozzie Albies
3B: Arenado, Donaldson, and Eugenio Suarez (my strongest position for sure)
SS: Trea Turner
OF1: Khris Davis
OF2: Eddie Rosario
OF3: Michael Brantley
Util: Suarez
Bench Hitters: Mazara, Donaldson , Olson/Muncy, and DeJong in our 1 DL Spot

Pitchers:
SP’s: Kluber, Alex Wood, Taillon, Newcomb, and Manaea
RP’s: Cody Allen, Morrow, Blake Parker, Britton, and Giles.

I’ve also been offered Quintana for Allen. Given this team, would you recommend either of these trades? Obviously Arenado and Turner were first round picks this year, and have a great history of fantasy production, but Lindor seems to be having a better hitting year than Turner, Goldy is heating up, I’m pretty stacked at 3B (waiver wire is too), and if I can get Vazquez or Soria it would make me want to pull the trigger on trading Allen for Quintana most likely. Please let me know your thoughts when you have a chance.
Thanks,
Matt

Hi Grey. Back in NJ for few weeks before heading back west. Would you get excited over any of these deals? My Brantley and Rendon for his Haniger and Escobar or Desmond and Escobar. I would like to get Hanager and Suarez instead but either one look strong? Thanks

Trade from earlier evolved a little (5×5, keep forever – so looking this year and future considerations):

A) Goldschmidt, DeJong, Vlad Jr., Price FOR Altuve, Votto, Cody Allen

B) Goldschmidt, DeJong, Vlad Jr., McCullers FOR Altuve, Votto, Cody Allen, Royce Lewis

I’m giving Goldschmidt side. Do you like either?

brinson was a day late this time…. not good (for him not BAD either 2 singles yesterday) yesterday but TODAY, oh baby. who really knows though, the way MLB rules “triples” a lot of the time those are just singles that should be ruled an error on whoever in the OF but never are.

– my previous contention as somebody who owns brinson in 2 deeper dynasties wherein i only play him on short days (obviously) was that his performance is MUCH better on those days i’ve noticed.

@Jerseyjon: that’s a pretty easy springer side, getting the best 2 players. if somebody views is as “fair” good for you as i’m certain you’d not be on the other side even before asking about it.

Or SON also likes Jon Gray @Tex on Sunday ($8.7)

Oh, and Bellinger has hit safely in 7 of the last 8 games, so better rest him before he melts.

@Grey:

Ugh, I have one team that the pitching just won’t come together on… like, not even close.

Today was Morton and Wacha. I can’t even start my ace, Carlos Martinez, tomorrow until I see a professionally thrown game again. I have tried to shop Morton, no luck. Sadly, I drafted Mikola, but I upgraded my rotation so he was the odd-man-out. Some guy cut in front of me at the Bauer window during the draft. I was hoping Buehler would cement things. And my reliever squad led by Rivero feels like I’m dancing on 50-feet scaffolding.

Ok, I’m done. I’m in 2nd with 80 points in a 12-team standard, so things could be worse. I see Rivero has a runner in scoring position with Votto up… I better go.

Okay, I really don’t need Gennett as I have Jo Ram at 2B so I would like to trade Gennett to get something in return. Any suggestions?

That owner won’t trade for McCullers. Here are the SP options.

Rodon, Taillon, Arrietta, Hill, Newcomb (maybe), R. Lopez, C. Smith,
M. Fulmer, Gausman, Maeda, Nova, M. Gonzalez, Chacin,
Happ, Hendricks, Hamels, Heaney, Skaggs, Clevinger,
Archer, Bumgarner, Lester, Gio, Buehler, Stripling,
Freeland

Which three SP would you go after for Gennett

Reds pitching doesn’t miss a beat while Homer Bailey’s rehabbing, because Harvey has that ol’ Bailey magic.
