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.

    Yo Grey, I love my boo Kluber, but I just got offered Greinke, Berrios and Andrus for him. Is this awful? I don’t think I’d accept as I’m already stuffed with useful SPs, but I may negotiate to sweeten the deal. My SS situation is bad (Russell), and my SP keepers could survive (already have Severino, and Kluber would likely be replaced by Snell or Berrios).

      • Milarky says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Now he’s offering Gallo, Berrios, Greinke for Kluber. Still not sure it’s worth it for me. I’m thinking of asking for Gallo, Andrus and Berrios instead, since my offence is awful. Still hold on both of these?

    10 player keeper league:

    Couple trade offers and need your advice:

    My Acuna and Bregman for his Stanton
    My Acuna and Rendon for his Stanton

    who do you value more in a keeper Bregman or Rendon?

    Thanks,

    @Grey: weekly roto redraft. bauer/chris taylor/gurriel for gennett/darvish?

  11. Launch Angle says:
    (link)

    I’m in a 10 team 5×5 standard season long roto league. I have Gordon, Whit, Benni,Trout as my main SB sources with others that can chip in a few too…like E. Rosario, Freeman.

    My roster:
    1B Freeman; 2B Whit; 3B Arenado; SS Correa; OF Trout, Benni, Judge, Springer; UTIL Abreu, Rosario; Bench Gordon

    I’m in first place overall leading in most categories. But, the HR, RBI and AVG categories are tight and wondering if I should trade Whit for Scooter or Gleyber or keep Whit in case of injury to one of my SB guys. My main SB threat is an owner who has Turner and Marte.

    Whit’s not going to get the same RBI totals he got last year with this KC lineup and I think he’s probably only going to hit around 12 HR for the year. Scooter should match or exceed last years’ numbers. Gleyber has been impressive, but is the power sustainable?

    So, take Scooter or Gleyber or hold Whit?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Launch Angle: Sounds like you need Scooter, so take him over Whit

      • Launch Angle says:
        (link)

        If I can trouble you once more with this Grey Matter…

        To clarify my standing, I’m 2 HR behind the lead in HR and about 15 RBI ahead and 16 SB ahead. However, three of us are within striking distance of each other in the HR, RBI and AVG category.

        Having more HR/RBI potential out of 2B with the ability to switch out Scooter and Gordon as needed is my rationale for considering moving Whit.

        Do you still think I should get Scooter over Whit?

        Also, who do you like better ROS – Goldy or Abreu?

        Thanks…your advice is so much better than a magic 8 ball.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Goldy… I think Whit for Scooter makes sense

    Do you like adames over Tim Anderson in an obp league. I like Anderson sb potential, but his obp is a drain and he can’t hit rhp. Crushes lefties though.

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      @Scott: Was just about to post about Adames, so might as well throw it here.

      I added him at Grey’s advice today over Odor and Semien. But dear god the matchups for the next 7 games are scary. Time to prove himself. Before I go crawling back to Odor…. ughh

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Odor has been a massacre of nothing

        • knucks says:

          @Grey: Agreed. And rather try something else for a while like Adames. But will be fun to see what he can do against this @NYY, @HOU, NYY gauntlet coming up.

          Only a few hours before I’m enjoying my candied bacon for dinner at the Pigs game.

    12 team 5×5 roto redraft

    C – Suzuki

    3B – Andujar
    OF – Stanton
    OF – Trout

    SP – Happ, Folty, Rodon, Soroka, Mikolos, Pivetta, Musgrove
    RP – Hader, Kela, Brach, Swarzak
    DL – Buehler

    With Donaldson, Zimmerman and Buehler coming off the DL soon need to plan ahead.

    1 Which starting pitcher is a drop for Buehler?
    2 Drop Andujar for Zimmerman (moving Gallo to 3rd) or drop Zimm?
    3 Please rank (when all are off DL) Donaldson, Zimmerman, Schwarber, Moncada, Cesar
    4 Considering Schwarber’s inconsistent playing time, is he worth a drop to hold Conforto to see if the latter returns to form?
    5 Cron is on the wire. Cron or Zimmerman when latter comes off DL?
    6 Tom Murphy over Suzuki?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sir Grey,

    Last week I traded my Iglesias to get Mazara and now that same owner is dropping Strickland. Did I miss something or should I use my #2 waivers to claim him.

    And I rotate (it is daily line ups) Hicks/GrandellZunino at my 2 catcher spots, but Murphy is avaliable. Hold the trio or pick up murphy?

    Happy Friday Grey,
    Still working on my neverending search for an adequate first baseman. Traded for Smoak and hes shit the bed so far. Picked up Olson and Desmond and theyve both been meh. Somehow W.Merrifield qualifies as a first baseman in my league. So I do have options. But M.Sano was just dropped in my league as well. I could drop W.Calhoun and scoop him up tp put him in my N/A slot. Worth a shot? How would you rank those 5 in a keeper league? SMOAK, DESMOND, OLSON, MERRIFIELD, SANO?

    • Grey

      Forget Sano for now, hold Calhoun… Smoak, Merrifield, Desmond

    Hey Grey,

    Great stuff as usual! Always look forward to the Friday buy column. Is there a term for reluctantly (because the site/advice is so great) protecting Razzball knowledge from league mates?

    Who do you like ROS at catcher- John Hicks or Cervelli?

    Thanks!

      Razzilluminati

      I’d try Hicks

  43. JC says:

    I guess catcher questions are taboo, so sorry in advance.
    I need a catcher, which do you value higher ROS, Murphy or Hicks? Trade analyzer has them both valued in the negative $, not sure what to do with that….
    Thanks so much, have a great weekend

      Hicks is playing every day, so that’s nice, but I’d go Murphy if in Coors

    Buy low window for Schoop? (Too bad I own him in 2/3 of my leagues).

        @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.

    – 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.

    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, 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!

    The Dozier owner in our league has grown impatient and is shopping him. What do you think of these and which do you prefer? Thank you.

    1. Dozier for Seager and Semien
    2. Dozier for Peralta and Semien
    3. Dozier for Carlos Santana and Semien

        @Grey:

        A. Is Carlos Santana and Seager a more reasonable offer for the Dozier owner?

        B. And, thoughts on Severino for Morton, Seager and Semien?

    Oh great Grey:

    2 things:

    Pivetta like a moldy cheese last 3 weeks in pts leagues. Still believe in him over Caleb Smith or Chachin?

    Decision time for Daniel Murphy: reinstate him for Cesar Hernandez??

    Thanks.

  88. Finally jettisoned Smoak. 18th round bargain for power, right? Why’d he fall sonfar, right? 30 homers, I can live with the .250 ave, right? Dudes hovering just over the Mendoza line, and the last couple weeks well below it. Boat anchor on my average & not even hitting it out? How does this dude even have (checks notes) 14 HRs? 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.

        @Grey: I have Suarez at 3rd base and muncy in my utility.. until Myers and m azara get back. I don’t really have power in the outfield with yelich, and Marte starting…
        My starters are Thor, C orbin, Snell, pivetta, wacha, saroka, junis.. I have peacock, Giles, Kel a, swarzak, Britton, bradly as relievers..

      • Jubaka says:
        (link)

        @Jubaka: @Grey: Healy is gone I don’t need peralta because I need power but I could use runs too.

    Good morning, Grey!

    Am I insane for thinking of dropping C Santana for J Hicks for CI in non-OBP league? If there were an “Unlucky BABIP” stat Carlos would be beasting. Other upsidey names out there are Bauers, Camargo and Guzman. Drop to ride hot hands? Hold? Do tell…

    Hope you are having a great weekend
    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?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d drop Peraza in a dynasty before Schoop

      • henncoop says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Yes I agree on not dropping Schoop. I have a pretty decent team overall with SBs & HR the only cats I’m not 1st or 2nd in. So better Peraza then the any of Myers, Domingo, or Dahl??

        • henncoop says:
          (link)

          @henncoop: I have Goldy @ 1B & Arenado @ 3B with no CI but 2 Utility slots which are filled by match ups with Segura, Peraza, Pderson, Muncy, Kepler, & Domingo. My starting OF is solid with K Davis, JD, & Rosario
          Maybe the drop for Healy would be Kepler?? (It’s a sold team & nice problem to have)

          • henncoop says:

    Hey Grey

    Gio Gonzalez dropped in a deep 15 team roto. I know he’s had a couple of rough outings but he needs picking up yes? No injury, just a rough patch?

    No reason not to drop some FAAB on him? He’d be replacing either Manaea or Marco Gonzales. Any preference?

    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

    • Grey

    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. Time to be more conservative? Or do I start Jack against the Cubbies and pray, since he’s at home? It’s in RCL.

    AL only with OBP over AVG, total bases added, net steals over steals. in case whit is DL’ed here shortly which is best add?
    C hicks (1B)
    1B yonder is closer to my heart
    2B whit (OF, 1B)
    SS correa
    3B devers
    MI lowrie
    CI mostsuckass
    OF (4) mancini (1B), brantley, fowler, grichuk
    util nunez (2B/SS/3B/OF)
    BN valencia (1B/3B/OF)
    NA (1) big willie

    options: canha, gross… man, fletcher (benched yet again, appears to be lefty only side guy), naquin (didn’t realize he was even healthy yet, and he’s probably the answer too), jace P (he appears to only play days valencia doesn’t (or slightly more) so handcuff value with the orangeman)

    SHEEEEIT! accidentally left taylor on BN in a 20 teamer h2h when i was very far behind most hitting categories this week, would’ve won steals here easily. do have taylor starting in other leagues though.

    Drop Shane Bieber who gets Detroit at home next for a bench bat during the week or hold

    Happ, Moran , Duffy, mondesi, Spangenberg, Pablo, lamb

      Why do you need a bench bat? Take followups to my newest post

    In a league with limited transactions so it’s hard to stream pitchers. Trying to find a waiver add I can lean on for several starts. Who do you like for the next couple months or potentially rest of season?
    Taillon, Musgrove, Weaver, Teheran, Fulmer, Rodon

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Rodon, Taillon

  127. Schmohawks Bob says:

    Hector Rondon or Blake Parker?

      Rondon

    so is Dominguez not the closer for the phillies – or is he the closer since Neris got lit up again today?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d only own Dominguez in that bullpen

      Not particularly, some are coin flips with him depending on matchups
