(NOTE: THIS POST WAS RELEASED EARLY YESTERDAY ON OUR PATREON. IT’S $5/MONTH.)

Is it already time for my Jonathan Schoop pickup post this year? Geez, time does fly. Like your mother! What does that mean? I thought I heard she was a flight attendant. If not, I’m so sorry. Like your mother! What? I thought I heard she was very polite and always said sorry. Guess she’s a terrible person. My bad, was trying to be nice. So, Schoop, rhymes with dope, not Shoop, Shoop-e-doop. Uh, here I go, here I go, here I go again. Five girl readers, what’s my weakness? Men (who play baseball)! Damn it! I promised myself I wouldn’t make any allusions to Salt-N-Pepa. By the way, George Clooney has really nice hair. What color is it? SALT AND PEPPER! God damn it! Okay, so Schoop has cut his Ks (minimally), but is hitting better than usual with a much flatter swing. Considering how much he would loft the ball vs. now? I think he can get power and average with his new swing. Maybe call it the New Jonathan Swing — Tony! Toni! Tone! says Feels Good! If nothing else, Schoop is worth rostering because he’s A) Not rostered in nearly enough leagues. B) Showing off a new swing that’s working for him, and is around a top 10 2nd baseman on our Player Rater. C) There’s no C. D) There was no C, why would there be a D? E) Grumbles F) Me, stop listing letters! Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Joey Bart – I wanted to list Austin Nola here. Oh boy did I! (You buying that enthusiasm? Yeah, might’ve laid it on too thick.) But Nola is owned in 70% of leagues, and, hey, Joey Bart isn’t a bad consolation prize. Like when you won a fishbowl and guppy and turned that into a lovely fish dinner and a toilet to empty your bowels later.

Ryan Mountcastle – People seem more on top of adding and dropping players this year. Jake Cronenworth? Over 50% owned. Tommy La Stella? You La know it. Wilmer Flores? Yeah, brings a tear to my ear. Any hoo! Mountcastle has looked great so far, actually better than I expected from him on plate discipline. Orioles aren’t a straight L either on offense (their pitching still sucks dog balls).

Brandon Belt – There’s been no one hotter over the last few games, and I was thisclose to making him my lede buy, but, holy crap, Belt is boring. It’s like wearing a belt with sweatpants. Enjoy your prom, loser! What the hell are you going to say exciting about Brandon Belt? He had two great games. *makes farting noises with hand in armpit*

Mitch Moreland – Bit surprised he’s not getting a ton of people more excited, but maybe it’s his platooning. If he’s traded, that might become more pronounced. Pronounced, by the way, like how I say Castillo. Very authentic.

Luis Garcia – I’ve often wondered about guys with super boring names. If they were named something like Julio McBlast, if they’d be owned in more leagues. But Mountcastle is a pretty cool name (especially if you’re into BBC detective shows — yo, is Olivia Colman on Mountcastle? David Tennant?). Luis Garcia sounds more boring than his stats say he will be. He should get the ABs too.

Cesar Hernandez – Cesar’s a hot table-setter like a salad with anchovies wrapped in a toga. Yum!

Jon Berti – Everyone seemed excited about owning Berti in the preseason when they thought he was going to play. Then when it seemed like he wasn’t going to play, everyone rightfully cooled on him, but now that he’s playing again, people haven’t warmed on him again. Jon’s Berrrrrrti, Berrrrrrti good, at least for steals.

Brendan Rodgers – This isn’t — thisn’t? — to actually pick up Rodgers or think he’s going to get ABs. This is just a troll of Bud Black.

Jose Garcia – Here’s what I said the other day, “(Garcia) was called up for the Reds to be their starting shortstop. Prospect Will wrote back in December, “Jose Garcia already broke out in 2019, everyone else just didn’t notice. He’s not the player we thought he was, people just haven’t realized yet. For one, despite being listed at 6’2” 175 lbs., Garcia is likely closer to 6’4” 205, partially due to misinformation and partially due to the amount of work he’s done to add strength. He’s also added all of this strength while maintaining his elite athleticism, helping him steal 15 bases this year. Garcia had a big power breakout this year, adding over 20 feet to his fly ball distance, but it went almost completely unnoticed due to the pitcher friendly conditions of the FSL. My biggest issue with Garcia is that he rarely walks, and my biggest problem with Grey is everything.” And that’s me quoting me quoting Will! My Blink takeaway for a player comp is Alex Gonzalez — power/a bit of speed/no walks/good glove.

Sam Haggerty – Could be what you thought you were getting from Dee Gordon this year. Absolutely nothing and some steals? Yeah, pretty much.

Willy Adames – If I had a chance with the Rays or Rockies, I would totally pull a Karen and insist on speaking to their manager. Is Adames really a cleanup hitter? Guess we should be happy Cash isn’t using him as his closer.

Evan Longoria – Fresh off his appearance at the DNC endorsing ‘using spoons for every meal,’ Longoria has been hot.

Raimel Tapia – True story! I ping our writer, Coolwhip, before writing up this post to discuss with him the image that will accompany this post. This week I said I was thinking about Tapia, but worried that if I focused too much on him, and how awesome Tapia was, then all weekend he would be inexplicably benched. Bud Black has me so shook.

MacKenzie Gore – You might’ve heard me ask Podcaster Ralph this week, where’s MacKenzie Gore, and PR sounded as unsure as I am. I love Gore — horrorcore! Rawr! I legit don’t like gory movies at all, and can’t lie. — but I don’t know where Gore is. I’m hoping we see him soon.

Ian Anderson – Just gave you my Ian Anderson fantasy. It was written while enjoying a Yoo-Hoo.

Tanner Roark – This is a Streamonater call like the call it makes to hotline on the side of the Mobil 1 synthetic oil bottle.

Jordan Montgomery – This is also a Streamonator call. “Yes, I just chugged a full bottle down. No, I don’t need emergency assistance. I just wanted to talk.”

Taylor Williams – Not sure what the term is to describe closers this year, but I think it’s polysyllabic and German. One bright spot has been Taylor Williams. No, this makes no sense.

Gregory Soto – Could’ve also listed Jose Cisnero, and, you’re not gonna believe this, I just did. Don’t *uck with Farmer, which is also what my bumper sticker says on my tractor.

Diego Castillo – In the immortal words of anyone trying to figure out who the Rays’ closer is, “Good freakin’ luck,” but you can give Castillo a shot. Nick Anderson, if he was dropped, should be rostered too, since he’s due to return.

Richard Rodriguez – It’s not a pissing contest to see who can own the worst closers, but, if it were, grab Dick-Rod.

Daniel Bard – Does your autocorrect change Bard to Barf? That’s not a mistake.

SELL

Mike Yastrzemski – Okay, confession alert! In this insanely goofy season, for Sells, I am going to the Player Rater, looking at guys who are in the top 25 or so and seeing who doesn’t seem like they belong. In a short season, there’s no rhyme or reason to who is doing well vs. poorly. Is Arenado a guy who should be around 150th most valuable? No. Is Yaz Jr. Jr. a top 15 overall hitter? C’mon. This is likely the last week I’m doing “sell high” vs. just drops because trade deadlines are about to pass. Am I trading Yaz Jr. Jr. for a bucket and mop used by the world’s heaviest man? No. But I would look at our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and explore options.

Grey,

Somebody in my leagiue is offering me Jake Cronenwerth but he wants these three minor leaguye prospects: Luis Camposano (C,SD), Logan Gilbert (SP,SEA) and George Kirby (SP,SEA). Would you make that deal? I am leaning against that.

Same team I need to drop Romano for sure. Pitching is a bit of a mess with Ws-7th; Ks-4th;
S -3rd but in trouble with current RP being D Castillo, Buttrey & Karinchak ; ERA-7th & WHIP-10th
Besides Romano my other weaker link are Mize, G Richards & Cueto
SP available I Anderson, Pineda, Gonsolin, Kuhl, B Anderson, or Margevicius
RP: Barlow, Pomeranz, Dick Rod, W. Davis, Bard, Kimbrel, or Devon Williams (rumors of a Hader trade)
Probably need to take a shot on one RP if only one drop otherwise .I Anderson looks interesting

Looking for weekly waiver wire pick-ups with plenty of FAAB left $686 in %x% with daily lineups
Hitting R-5th; HR-3rd; RBIs-5th; SB-1st & BA-9th.
Hitters I could drop: Avisail, Carlson, & Tauchman. Team has Olson & Chapman so I could get screwed this week with Covid sits but have Mountcastle & Riley as fill-ins
Available: Tapia (my top lean if PT continues) Thames, G Cooper; JBJ, Hilliard, Miggy, L Garcia, Wendle, Dickerson, Paredes, Nwesome, Braun, Longoria, or Heyward. (needing at least one OF if picking up more then one hitter)

I need saves way more than wins or Ks at the moment, and I can slot in a RP or SP in my utility pitcher spot. Having said that, would you trust Kimbrel next week given what happened yesterday? He would be the closer I’d have to put in in place of a SP if I chose to do so.

Hey Grey! Alright, I know this is a bit of a fools game, but I”m looking to trade some excess pitching for keeper hitting, and I need to try and project my two keeper pitchers for next year as well. Here are the guys in contention – I need to know which guys I should be fine with trading now, and which I should really hold on to to make sure I don’t make a big mistake in my keepers.

Shane Bieber
Lance Lynn (this one’s obvious, but I’m unlikely to get a keeper hitter for him)
Zac Gallen
Sonny Gray
Walker Buehler

Bieber might get me a stud, pitcher even if it’s only half-way through.
but I don’t know if I like the idea of trading the #1 pitcher in baseball even if it’s half-way through. Lynn is the obvious choice to trade, but so far ‘m not seeing many people giving me the quality of hitter I’d like. So I think this comes down to whether I should be willing to trade Buehler, Gray or Gallen (and in what order).

Milarky
Milarky
Reply to  Grey
1 year ago

10 teams, 40-man rosters, including prospects. We only keep two pitchers and four hitters. I came in with Bieber and Buehler, Rizzo, Stanton, Story and Altuve. I’m hoping to improve on one of those hitting keepers.

Milarky

Reply to  Grey

Exactly. I’ve made mistakes in the past where I’ve traded the wrong guy looking back on it at the end of the season, so I’m a bit paranoid. Obviously I should probably keep Bieber, but it the others that I’m not sure who I should assume will be the best to keep. Buehler may have the least value outside of Lynn, so he may be the most obvious one to keep – he seems to be coming out of it despite the blister.

Surprised by a couple of the Streamonator’s numbers for tomorrow:

Griffin Canning vs SEA, $13.9
Taylor Clarke vs SF, -$13.2

I get that Clarke is a reliever, but he’s been sharp in the bullpen and looked good in his spot start against Colorado. Whereas Canning’s just been getting knocked around lately.

Who would you stream tomorrow?

As a follow up to my early conversation after Dobnak’s blow up I’m forced to throw everyone and go for the K’s, Saves and wins and hope for the best. Should have gone with my gut which was to sit everyone.

While this is a tactic I usually would not use-currently I leading my opponent by a lot in the hitting categories. On the pitching side he has P. Lopez and Cease going today. Currently I up in whip and era. Tied in saves and K’s. One down in wins.

I could sit Dobnak, Montas, B. Anderson and Bassitt and probably win the whip and era category and forfeit Wins, K’s and Saves. That would make it 7-3 for the weekend and vault me into 2nd or 3rd place.

I could roll the dice and pitch all my pitchers and hope for the best.

Question-would you sit your pitchers and go for the 7-3 win for the week or roll the dice and hope for the best.

Sorry for the long question. In this short season just looking for any advantage.

Thank you

I guess the main risk is if both Cease and Lopez have excellent starts then that Whip and ERA category advantage could disappear.

Currently leading ERA 3.35 vs 3.95 and Whip 1.14 vs 1.37.

Does that change your mind at all.

The only thing about using everyone is I could win the K’s and Win race and also saves as I have Hand, Taylor Rogers and D. Hudson as closers while he has Rosental, Sulser, Bard and Cisnero.

It’s a crap shoot.

Also, I’ve got both Austin Nola and Joey Bart, thinking about dropping Bart for Mountcastle or Belt. Another player who isn’t exactly scoring off the charts for me is Brian Reynolds. Would you make any moves here?

Hey Grey! For the final 4 week push in my weekly lineups league, was offered Morton and Springer for Yelich and Spencer Howard.

Obviously neither Yelich or Springer are doing too hot – but I have some key points to gain if I can build on W ERA WHIP and K + I have zero trust in starting Howard this year.

Would you do that move or still hold Yelich?

Hey Grey, I’m in a weird situation. I’m WAY ahead in pitching categories. As of right now, I’m 11 wins ahead of the second place guy with Gallen looking like it could be 12. I’m also 63 Ks ahead of 2nd, 1.57ahead of 2nd in ERA, and 0.14 ahead of 2nd place in WIP. Two questions:

1) we have to start a rookie pitcher, and I’ve got Javier (TEX, @LAA). Would you sit him next week for an idle Urquidy to protect ratios just in case he craps the bed?

2) I could use some saves, so would you put Kimbrel in in place of any of Buehler (start a bit uncertain), Gallen (@LAD), Sonny Gray (STL), Lynn (@SEA), or Keuchel (@MIN, @KC)?

Thanks!

10-team 6×6 roto league (OBP/QS), five-man bench, daily waivers, start 14 hitters and 10 pitchers

I’ve had very strong pitching up to this point — leading in W, ERA and WHIP — and now I’m in first place and looking to shore up my main weaknesses: rate stats (8th in AVG, 5th in OBP) and steals (9th). Was offered Story, Montas and Joakim Soria for Darvish, Lynn and Taylor Rogers. I’d still have Maeda, Lamet, Corbin and Bassitt in the rotation (plus there’s an IP limit that I’m already more than halfway to) and Iglesias, Rosenthal, Rich-Rod and Cisnero for saves. Is that too much to give up for Story, or should I pull the trigger?

I need HR/RBI or K/ratio help. But the first place team is pretty dominant, so Yaz contributes.

What’s up Grey

Lose Laureano for Clint Frazier? I know you’ve preached patience on Laureano but feel like this one is close.

I need to activate David Peterson since he’s now off the IL, even though I won’t be starting him tonight vs. the yankees. Who should I drop for the roster spot:

Rich Hill, Kwang Kim, or Turnbull? Or perhaps none of these guys are worth dropping for Peterson?

Ouch, I don’t disagree, but as a heavy investor in Sexy Dr. Pepper, I feel like I just got kicked in the fun jewels a bit….

Tons of fair value for Adell in a single season league. Keeper or dynasty? That’s a different story altogether and I don’t have a good answer unless I get more info. In what areas is your team weak (if any)?

A strong commissioner would have all teams play unless there was a torrential downpour. But we all know that Manfred is as woke and weak commissioner as there exists.

I picked up Belt today for my once a year boring adventure. In Colorado next week as well. Also “Cuth” was my impulse buy today.
