Scooter Gennett had the game of his life yesterday.  Well, isn’t he Vespecial?  You say to me, “Unkie Grey, can I sit on your lap metaphorically and you tell me why Scooter hit so many homers?”  Sure, Nephew, it’s simple.  A story of my Scooter in two tweets:

I am the first person in the history of fantasy baseball to bench two hitters for games with at least three home runs in the same season.  *opens oven, sticks head in oven, opens The Bell Jar to read*  Ugh, could someone check on the pilot light?  You might be asking yourself why I had Scooter on my bench, while you coyly bat your eyelashes.  I’ll explain, you coquettish bastard!  He was hitless the entire previous week!  WHAT THE EFF?!  Any hoo!  Scooter had a big game, and will now be invited to all the same parties as Mark Whiten, but Scooter is not much more than a hot schmotato.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Scott Schebler – Remained sidelined.  If you had told me two months ago I’d not only be updating everyone on the injury of Scott Schebler but it would also matter, I would’ve called you a liar and other angry words one might leave for someone who mis-parked.

Tim Adleman – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.42.  What if Adleman is the yin to my yang?  If I hadn’t benched Scooter, maybe Adleman wouldn’t have pitched well.  Scooter’s game has made me philosophical.  That’s the word for depressed when you’re wearing a bed sheet for a toga, right?

Adam Wainwright – 3 2/3 IP, 9 ER, ERA up to 4.82.  Step on that cat, because me-ouch.

Stephen Piscotty – 2-for-3 and his 4th homer, and his 2nd homer in three games.  Looks like Piscotty is finally coming out of his early season struggles.  If he was dropped in your league, I don’t know why you won’t pick him up.  Grey doesn’t know!

Jacob Faria – Was called up to start today vs. the White Sox.  Short story:  I added him.  Stephen King short story:  was a bad year to draft Vince Velasquez and Danny Salazar in the same 15-team league.  I wish there was a better pitcher behind my Rita Hayworth poster, but there’s not so I’m crawling through a mile of sewage and bad pitchers — hello, Eric Skoglund! — to get to freedom.  David Sedaris short story:  I call Faria ‘The Rooster.’  He’s my crazy brother, who is crazier than my crazy sister.  O. Henry short story:  I grabbed Faria to help with my team’s ratios, and he’s going to give me Ks and terrible ratios.  Here’s a post from Prospect Ralph detailing his Jacob Faria fantasy, complete with GIF!

Jose Quintana – 5 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners (4 BBs), 7 Ks, ERA at 5.30.  Guys and five girls, this isn’t a good start.  Four BBs in less than six innings is gonna lead to someone shooting their eye out.

Avisail Garcia – 2-for-4 and his 9th homer, hitting .333. I legit thought Avisail was headed back to his usual disappointing self, so this coupled with the .370 average across the last week are good signs.  Maybe he can finally put together that elusive full, solid season.

Todd Frazier – 1-for-4 and his 9th homer.  Now has four homers in the last eight games, which is a week if Ringo Starr is reading.

Jake Junis – 3 2/3 IP, 7 ER as he was called up by the Royals.  Junis Priest!  *plays Smoke on the Water opening riff with mouth because I don’t actually know any Judas Priest songs or instruments*  According to Prospector Ralph, Junis isn’t worth mentioning.  According to Halp, Junis has a shot at mid-rotation upside.  Pitting them against each other!  Round 1 — Ralph!  Junis looks like a 92-94 MPH fastball guy that has good command and could be a 7.5 K/9 guy.  I’m more intrigued by Faria and would grab him first if I had my druthers or knew what druthers were.

Mike Moustakas – 4-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 15th homer, hitting .275.  Moistasskiss!

Marwin Gonzalez – Out with a sore hand.  This might put the Astros in the lead to trade for Brad Hand.

Carlos Beltran – 1-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer, and 4th homer in the last nine games.  Spooky voice, “It’s the rise of the Zombino.”

Ken Giles – 1 IP, 2 ER and has now given up runs in three straight games.  Let’s just say I went looking for Will Harris in all of my leagues.

Yulieski Gurriel – 3-for-5, 2 RBIs, hitting .350 in the last week with two homers.  Hot schmotato alert!

Mike Napoli – Hit the DL with lower back tightness.  Funny, when I think about his mom I get lower front tightness.

Carlos Gomez – Nearing rehab games…And now he needs to make a u-turn and it’s rush hour.

Joey Gallo – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 17th homer.  “You drafted Dee Gordon, Billy Hamilton and Peraza and the only power you took was Joey Gallo and Aaron Judge?  Wow, did you screw up your draft!” said no one in June.

Nomar Mazara – 4-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .289.  You know who he reminds me of?  Gertrude Stein?  No!  Let me answer.  He reminds me of Piscotty.  Solid average, 25-homer power and kinda bleh on speed.

Matt Bush – 1 IP, 3 ER.  Kazaam!  Real question:  how is it everyone with even a passing knowledge of baseball knows you don’t bring your closer into a non-save game, but major league managers don’t know this?

Adrian Beltre – In a walking boot after jamming his ankle.  Ankle jam is the worst kind of jam after apricot.  Is that zest?  Gross!  Rangers haven’t put Beltre on the DL yet, but they’re likely saving something fun for later in the week.

Yoenis Cespedes – Ran indoors.  He sounds like a faucet!  Take it Highlights, it’s yours!

Jacob deGrom – 4 IP, 8 ER, ERA up to 4.75.  DeGrom’s pitching in emoji form:  open-mouthed emoji eating a poop emoji thinking it’s soft serve ice cream.

Asdrubal Cabrera – 3-for-5 and his 4th homer.  Also, in this game, Neil Walker (1-for-4) hit his 8th homer and Juan Lagares (4-for-5, 2 runs) hit his 2nd.  They were happy to see their old teammate, even if their exclamation of “Gee!” underplayed their true feelings.

Travis d’Arnaud – 1-for-5 and his 6th homer.  The excitement of you picking him up off waivers will injure him.  Do you want that on your conscience?

Anthony Rizzo – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 13th homer.  HR to the Rizzo!

Jake Arrieta – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners (3 BBs), 5 Ks, ERA at 4.33.  Not trying to find problems with Arrieta, but three walks and only five Ks in a home start against a team that is bottom third for away offense?  Well, kinda Mehrrieta.

Justin Bour – Hit the DL and was spotted in a walking boot.  So his ankle is either really injured, or he parks as bad as me.  No idea how you’ll ever find a corner man to fill in for him.  There’s only 45 corner infidels on waivers who are exactly the same as Bour.

James Paxton – 5 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.69.  Wake me when I’m supposed to be super impressed by Paxton.  Don’t wait too long though, because he’ll likely be injured again soon.

Kyle Seager – 2-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 6th homer, hitting .258.  Yawnstipating’s not a great look, Seager.  Step up yo’ game!

Max Scherzer – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 14 Ks, ERA at 2.35 vs. Brandon McCarthy – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.28.  Preview of Game 3 in the 1st round of the MLB NL playoffs after Dusty makes the puzzlingly choice to start Joe Ross and Gio Gonzalez in the first two games.

Aroldis Chapman – Expected back between June 16-18, and should go out on a rehab assignment in Trenton.  As someone from Jersey, I can confidently say he won’t be the only one in Trenton that needs rehab.

Jacoby Ellsbury – Still not feeling right as he deals with a concussion.  Hate to be that guy, but concussion injuries were so last year.  This year is blisters.  You’re kinda making yourself look silly, Ellsbury.

Masahiro Tanaka – 5 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 6.55.  Right now, he’s Apollo vs. Drago and Girardi is Rocky holding the towel.

Mitch Moreland – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer.  Mitch don’t kill my vibe!  He does occasionally kill the ball, though.

Andrew Benintendi – 2-for-4 and his 8th homer, hitting .273.  Ben-extendi says, “Boing!”

Hanley Ramirez – 1-for-4 and his 8th homer, hitting .253.  The Buy Low Window will close eventually methinks, said Grey dressed as a leprechaun.

Devon Travis – Hit the DL with knee issues.  Damn, this guy’s got worst knees than Vicki Lawrence in Mama’s Family.

Jesse Hahn – 6 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.40, as he was activated from the DL.  Hahn’s a weird one, I like his stuff, but his peripherals are kinda mediocre garbage on the surface of the moon.  Not a hot steaming pile, but the moon also doesn’t exist except in a soundstage in Burbank.  I’d go with the Stream-o-Nator for him.

Cam Bedrosian – Wasn’t activated on Tuesday as originally agreed upon by Bedrosian and his fantasy owners.  Can’t believe this, but Bud Norris might’ve Pipp’d Bedrosian anyway.

Kole Calhoun – 2-for-2, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer, and sixteenth homer in the last two games and he’s the hottest schmotato in the land.  Don’t grab him at your own peril.  So, if you do grab him, you’re a nonpareil.

C.J. Cron – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  He is *the* banana in the ol’ tailpipe.

Alex Avila – 2-for-4, 2 runs, and his 9th homer, hitting .324.  Don’t make me point out on our Player Rater how many catchers Avila is better than.  It makes us both appear to be foolish.

Ian Desmond – Didn’t start yesterday.  And you people think Dahl will have a starting job if he returns?  Yeah, you people!  And it was rhetorical!

Gerardo Parra – Hit the DL with a strained quad.  Not so fast, previous blurb!  Parra will be out for up to a month!  Dot dot dot.  And Raimel Tapia was called up.  Wow, the Rockies hate Desmond.  I’d grab Tapia if you need steals, but I have to think Desmond plays.

Mark Reynolds – 2-for-4, 5 RBIs and his 15th and 16th homers.  I cycle through a lot of players, but it’s never even crossed my mind to move on from Reynolds.  For Reynolds on my team, it’s a wrap!

Antonio Senzatela – 6 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.56.  He seems like he’s taking the slow drive to a 4.00 ERA.  Honestly, though, for the NL-Only league where I own him, he’s been more than respectable.

Edwin Encarnacion – Didn’t start yesterday in Coors.  I get it, no DH, but I kinda think I’d find a way to get Edwin into the starting lineup.  Ooh, speaking of starting lineup, I have to search my mom’s attic for my Carney Lansford Starting Lineup figurine.  I mean, now that I have my own place, it’s important I have all my prized possessions with me.

Danny Salazar – Hit the 10-day Disgraceful List with being supremely crappy.  Indians are hoping to find a cure in the next two weeks.  If they do, sell the cure to Tanaka.

Bradley Zimmer – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .275.  He’s been a bore to own, and, truthfully, I’m only holding because I know if I drop him, Prospector Ralph will grab him.

Aaron Nola – 8 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.28.  Has only one straight game where he’s looked respectable, so let’s not start diddling each other just yet, but I do love Nola and own him in multiple leagues.

Hector Neris – 1/3 IP and the Hold because Pete Macktheknife has a crazy quick hook.  He has a hook like the Phils aren’t 15 games under .500.  Talk about killing a guy’s confidence for no reason.  Pat Neshek came on to get a two-out save, and I would absolutely grab Neshek in every league if you’re looking for saves, and who isn’t?  Seriously, who?  You’re a commie if you don’t want saves.

Jaime Garcia – 7 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.21.  I know it doesn’t make a ton of sense to say I love Nola, yet Garcia is someone to look at the Stream-o-Nator for when Garcia’s ERA is a run below Nola’s, but so it goes, so it goes.

Zach Britton – Threw from a flat mound.  “It’s flat now!”  That’s an unhappy queen ant.

Kevin Gausman – 6 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.86.  Fo’reallies, any pitcher with an ERA over 5.75 should be sent down or shutdown.  Not joking.  If your ERA is that bad, something’s wrong.  Work through it in the minors.  Then when you come back, you get two starts to get your ERA under 5.50, if it doesn’t happen, shutdown or sent down again.  And I just fixed baseball!  You’re welcome!

Jonathan Schoop – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 9th and 10th homers.  This ain’t toothpaste, it’s Schoop!  Okay, that needs some work.

Chris Davis – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 13th homer.  If I were a kid, I’d say my favorite player is Kh/Chris Davis and I’d have a jersey and cap that were split in half so it was O/A and I’d do interpretative dance.

Seth Smith – 1-for-3 and his 6th homer.  Also, in this game, David Freese (2-for-5, 2 runs) homered, his 6th.  Elias Sports Bureau said this is the first time two players who sound like Batman villains, The Lisper’s Nightmare and Mr. Freese, homered in the same game.  To further the comic book-style writing, Freese looks like he could be a hot schmotato.

Ivan Nova – 6 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.04, but left with knee tenderness.  If Ivan Nova wants to go into Camden and have a Quality Start, that’s what Ivan Nova’s gonna do.  Recognize!  Or rather, recognIvan!

Tony Watson – 1 IP, 2 ER and yet another blown save, ERA up to 3.91.  Felipe Rivero should be the closer, and might be by this time tomorrow.  If he’s available in your league, he should be owned anyway.

Chase Anderson – 7 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.94.  His last three starts:  21 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 22 Ks.  I told you to grab him after his last start; today, I say, well, dur, same.

Madison Bumgarner – Nearing mound work.  Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t!  Almond Joy’s got nuts!  Mounds don’t!  Unless you consider risking a Hall of Fame career to ride a dirt bike nuts.

Sam Dyson – Acquired by the Giants for cash.  The cash is said to be more than one dollar and less than two.

Eduardo Nunez – 3-for-4, 1 run.  This is the third time in the last week I’ve told you to pick up The Convent, and second time I’ve told you why I call him that:  Edu-Nun, an educational institute for nuns, a convent.  Frank Voila!

Chris Owings – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 7th homer, hitting .296.  He was oh for his last five games so it’s good to see him get out of the funk, like James Brown stepping out of a hot tub.

Robbie Ray – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.85.  I love him, but, um, yeah, Padres.

Yasmany Tomas – Hit the DL with groin tendinitis.  Groin tendinitis?  Is that when you use your penis like a tennis racket?  A penis racket?  Usually your hand or elbow get tendinitis first, but Tomas’ hands and arms are so jacked that they resist tendinitis.  Unfortunately, his groin is also jacked which leads to tendinitis.

Hunter Renfroe – 2-for-4 and his two homers (12, 13).  I was thinking about this yesterday.  With Commish Manfred sticking Capri Sun straws into baseball and juicing them up, if you don’t get at least four homers a night in a 12-team mixed league or shallower, you’re gonna fall behind in, like, three days.

Dinelson Lamet – 3 IP, 7 ER.  Hey, Dinelson, you’re whack, son, and a whack off.

    Best bet for saves, rivero, hand or neshek? The pirates are cheap. Rivero is arbitration eligible. Could turn into a situation where they dont want to pay him yet. As bad as they have played, pit is only 4.5 games out of first.

    • knucks says:

      @Scott: Grab Rivero for now and see what happens. The other two teams are worse.

      At least you’ll be able to join in on the C**nt Hurdle trash talking if the Bucs are annoying about this, as you alluded to.

    c. John Rambo Quote of the day for June 7

    [Scene change in a bar]

    Sheriff: ‘Colonel?’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Have a seat. Oh miss, can you do this again, please?’

    Waitress: ‘- Oh sure!’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘- And for my friend…?’

    Sheriff: ‘A shot of wild turkey. If I was out of line before, I just want to apologize.’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘None of that makes much difference now, does it?’

    Sheriff: ‘No, I guess not. I suppose…I just feel…’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Like you were…cheated outta your chance?’

    Sheriff: ‘I wanted to kill that kid. I wanted to kill him so bad, I could taste it.’

    Colonel Trautman: ‘Doesn’t sit well with that badge. It can get confusing sometimes… In Vietnam, you can bet that Rambo and I got pretty confused. But we had orders. When in doubt…kill! But what the hell, you’re a civilian. You can go home to your wife, and your house and your little flower garden. You’re under no pressure to figure all this out.’

        a. Made it back from the place I can’t pronounce.

        b. This is my note to my unborn grandson.

        Dinelson’s Lament, a Modern-day Horror Story by Ante GALIC

        Grandpa: Grandson, Lament was nervous from the get-go, unable to throw strikes at all, hitting batters, almost hitting batters, pitching every which way. When he was behind in the count, and that was often the case, AZ players were hitting the ball on the screws!

        Grandson: Tell me more, grandpa.

        Grandpa: Well, he struck out three batters in three innings. That’s a 9.0 K/9.

        Grandson: Wow, grandpa. That is a pretty good metric.

        Grandpa: Yes, my grandson it is. He also has the hardest changeup at 90.2 mph, it’s a circle change a la Greg Maddux.

        Grandson: Wow, grandpa. He must have been special on June 6, 2017.

        Grandpa: Grandson, he was extra special as in straight-up baby-shit brown diarrhea . He walked three batters.

        Grandson: Not good.

        Grandpa: He ONLY gave up 5 hits.

        Grandson: That’s not too bad, I’ve seen many pitchers give up more hits than innings pitched and not allow any runs. Surely, Lamentable Dinelson wasn’t roughed up too much.

        Grandpa: Grandson, you don’t know the half of it. The guy gave up 7 ER in those short 3 INN. It’s a good thing the pitcher and Daniel Descalso were in the lineup otherwise the score would have been 18-0 after 2 times through the order.

        Grandson: Aw, grandpa!! Why did you start him? Did Unkie Grey tell you to? Grandpa? Grandpa, are you still there? Aw, grandpa you fell asleep. Well, me too!

        Cheers,

                b. On a sad note, I received a letter from my HR team in N’Djamena (party forever) that the post I am currently occupying will be downgraded from P-3 to P-2 (i.e., 1 level) effective Jan 1 2018. In essence it’s a termination notice. The Chad operation is really suffering and everyone is feeling the pinch. They had to cut around 2 million $ US from the staffing budget for 2018. Not good. Still have a lot of work so keeping my chin up as much as possible. Thank you for making life easier in this God-forsaken place.

    Danny Valencia, 1-3, 3 RBI, 2 R. In the last 4 games, Valencia is 10-13 with 1 HR, 10 RBI and 9 R, and during that 4 game stretch, he has the same number of games with at least 2 runs scored (3) and the same number of games with at least 3 RBIs (2) as Rougned Odor has had ALL SEASON.

    And he still cannot get a hot schmotato alert from Grey!

      @Points League: Depends on what you get back. I’m in a shallow league and I’ll take that K upside, while rolling the dice on the ratios ticking upwards. Like CMU said, the K’s will be there. But I don’t think I can get back a terrific package from selling him at the moment. Maybe you can though. I’d always sell high if you can get something consistently equal or greater back in a deal.

    • Curious George Springer says:
      (link)

      @Points League: I think he’s breaking out. His FIP supports what he’s been doing (low 3s FIP and he has a high 2s ERA), and he’s been an elite source of Ks for a while.

    Hey Grey,

    Hope you’re doing well.

    1) It appears that the ever so changing closer carousel is back at work. I am currently rolling with Kimbrel, Ramos, Watson and Bedrosian. It seems like Watson is at risk of losing his job, and Bedrosian may have already lost his job. I have two roster spots I can mess around with, and three if I drop Cam Bedrosian. This is a saves only league – standard 5 pitching categories. How do you approach this shituation? Will Harris, Felipe rivero, Neris/Neshek are available

    2) When Tom Murphy returns, would
    You rather have him or Avila?

    3) thoughts on Jeff Hoffman? Do you think he stays? How would you rank these guys: Hoffman, Miranda, Godley, Jordan Montgomery

    Thanks!

    Matt Wieters gave a lesson on how to get between your pitcher and an angry batter when Puig struck out to end the game and started walking towards Glover, after Glover mouthed something to celebrate his save… it was a very odd situation

    • knucks says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: If comparing Weiters to Buster here, it should also be noted that there is no history between the batter/pitcher (that I’m aware of).

      And Harper straight up took off in a sprint towards the mound. There was some time to think a little for Weiters. He was already in between Glover/Puig as he was on his way to the mound for congrats because it was the last out of the game.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @knucks: I was watching the Nats broadcast so I didn’t get the Dodgers perspective, but the Nats guys were really confused with why Puig came after Glover at the end of the game.

          (link)

          @William Hung: Yea i feel ya, was watching on mute.

          Just noting that Weiters wasn’t so much giving a lesson on how to stick up for a pitcher, as he was just in between the two players as it was the end of the game. And Puig wasn’t coming towards the mound until Wieters was already out there. Semantics I guess. Anyways, as soon as I could tell there weren’t gonna be any street fighting I turned it off, as it was already like 1ish on the East Coast.

    Dynasty League Trade:

    • Hawk says:
      (link)

      @Chris D:

      Your instincts are correct. Take it and run. Tanaka had a 13k performance against the A’s (which he lost anyway) but the A’s strike out more than Larry from Three’s Company did at the Regal Beagle.

      Even with that start, Tanaka’s ERA over the last month is around 10.5. Thats’s a ten point five ERA for a month. As in “If he goes 6 IP and give up 6 ER, his ERA would go DOWN”

      He shouldn’t even be owned. The fact that you can get ANYTHING back for him is flat-out amazing.

      • Chris D says:
        (link)

        @Hawk: Thanks for the imput Hawk. Yea I agree, if this wasn’t a dynasty league, I would have cut bait already. I just don’t get how a guy goes from Cy Young type season to non-roster-able when there a no reported sings of injury. The guy who proposed the trade has to do some looking into on his end, but he seems open to it. I’m 70/30 towards a yes.

    Hi Grey, I just received a trade offer that I wanted to run by you to get your thoughts on, I’m in a 16 team league and was just offered Mike Trout for Lance McCullers and Luis Severino. The scoring in our league rewards pitching more than most leagues but this seems like a no brainer, what do you think?

    • b the esq. says:
      (link)

      @Tom: 2 questions….What is the rest of your pitching staff? Who is on waivers to fill the roster spot left by the 2 for 1? Trout is obviously the best player in that deal, but if you are going to be sunk by losing that much pitching its obviously not worth the sacrifice.

      Regardless, I think you do it, but just some things to think on.

      @Tom: Agree with b

        @Grey: Thanks guys. My pitching is pretty solid but there are a lot of question marks, I have Arrieta, F-Her, Cueto, Chapman, Betances, Jaime Garcia, Vargas, Tyson Ross and Volquez. There are guys like Cam Bedrosian, Asher, Tomlin, Erasmo Ramirez on the wire so nothing great. I can easily drop or try to trade guys like Jay Bruce, Matt Holiday once Trout is back if a need pitcher but doubt I’d get anything useful. This is really helpful and I appreciate the feedback (also if this info changes your mind please let me know). Thanks again.

            @Grey: Saves are 10 points, Wins 10, Shutouts 5, CG 5 (a CGSO is 20 points on top of the stats accumulated during the game) but then losses are only -2 and runs -1 so the pitching fantasy points are inflated and typically the top 10-15 players at the end of the season are pitchers. I think I’ll accept the Trout offer and than try to trade for a closer or rookie call-up that’s not owned yet. Maybe there will be a hidden gem in Friday’s buy/sell? Thanks again.

    You don’t know any Judas Priest songs? Well then, you’ve got another thing coming, Pal!
    I actually hate how Judas Priest has ruined that phrase. It originally was, “You’ve got another _think_ coming,” which makes sense: “You think X? Well then, you’ve got another think coming!” (meaning you will soon think not-X). But saying “You’ve got another thing coming” makes no sense. What “thing” do you have coming? What is this “thing”? What does it even mean to “have a thing coming”? Makes no sense, and it’s all Judas Priest’s fault. See here for more support (pretty funny article too): https://www.theguardian.com/media/mind-your-language/2014/nov/18/mind-your-language-another-think
    There should be a law against saying “You’ve got another thing coming.” In which case Judas Priest would be Breakin’ the law, Breakin’ the law.

    SON likes Maeda’s next start presumably because Maeda is at home and CIN’s offense is among the league’s worst on the road. Hard to ignore that Maeda isn’t figuring things out, though.

    Drop one of my closers (like Wilson or Glover) for Rivero? Wilson’s been OK, and Glover obv. has a nice offense, but both look like trade candidates.

    Re: Wainwright… is there a better feeling than when someone else grabs a pitcher you were trying to pickup, and then the dude gets shelled?

    We’ll see if Foltynewicz has a good start, but it can’t be worse than the guy I “missed” on in my weekly league.

    Tried to unload an OF or two but everyone in my league is scared to make trades apparently. Do I drop any of these to make room for streaming pitchers or continue to try to look for trades? 12 team, H2H

    Would you shop deGrom for Wood & G Torres? Keeper league where I could keep Torres Rd 22 next year. Or would you hold and hope deGrom turns it around?

        Top available SP on player rater are Eduardo Rodriguez (DL), Triggs, Andriese (DL), JC Ramirez, Sabathia, Biagini, Adelman

        @b the esq.: Not sure how long, but a couple of starts. I figured it was going to be Lucas Sims. He’s safer and feels like someone you can roll without worrying.

        Newcomb is more upsidey, tons of k’s, limits the homers, but he walks batter left and right. Like could average 6 walks per nine. He’s a matchup play with a heavy probability of being roofied.

    12 team roto, many injuries/suspensions including Trout, Marte, Freeman, Kinsler, Turner, Cam, Duffy, Familia… ugh. Looking to stay afloat for now until mid July when those bats should mostly be back. Would offering Jose Abreu for Miggy C be an overpay at this point? I figure Abreu is pretty safe ROS but Miggy may be at worst roughly the same but with a better chance of boom or bust.

    Also, drop JC Ram for Matz?

    Was just offered Trumbo for Ray… take it or offer what a counter instead? Wouldn’t mind offering a 2 for 1 since Haniger is returning soon and I already have a bench bat…

      I’d take Trumbo

      • ebudz says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Ah I was afraid you’d say that because I was tempted to accept but I was hoping you recommend packaging two guys from my roster for one of his instead taking on another hitter…

        You don’t think that’d be selling Ray too low? If I accept it then my team would like following:

        (1) C: Wieters
        (1) 1B: Rizzo
        (1) 2B: Odor
        (1) SS: Peraza
        (1) 3B: Rendon
        (3) OF: Harper, Springer, Trumbo
        (2) UT: Encarnacion, Abreu
        (6) Bench: Owings, JBJ

        (2) DL: Haniger

        (3) SP: Carrasco, McCullers, Nova
        (2) RP: Wilson, Knebel
        (4) P: Betances, Glover, Severino, Lynn
        (6) Bench: Shoemaker, J. Ross, J. Garcia/streamer

        Wouldn’t my pitching be taking a big hit there? Granted in this shallower league streaming has been working but it’s not ideal with a weekly 6 add limit…

        And plus I’ll have so many bench bats, especially when Haniger returns …

        1) Would you drop any of my bats if I were to accept to take Trumbo for Ray?

        2) Ideally I wanna aim for someone better on his team by offering 2 guys to help clear my bench bat? I know he doesn’t want to trade away Judge and he JUST traded for Altuve. I know he needs pitching and was frustrated with guys like Lester and Quintana? SO maybe offer some combo of a Ray + a bat for Trumbo and one of his SPs? Badunno you tell me, you’re the expert! Sorry to be annoying and overthinking but trades are hard to come by in this league so I want to make them count!

        Other team:

        (1) C: Sanchez
        (1) 1B: C. Davis

          Looks good to me… I think in your league you can find SPs off waivers….Owings is the drop

          • ebudz says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Word thanks for the reassurance! However he did just message me saying he’d trade me an OF + SP for my Ray and a Hitter or SP of my choosing? Any ideas that could land me a better return for Ray? Am I crazy for wanting to ask for his Lester? He seems open to a different deal but it’s good knowing I can settle for his Trumbo for my Ray but I’d rather get a SP back in that deal!

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          So you want one of his SPs who are worse than your guys? You can send him Ray/Haniger/Owings and JBJ for Trumbo/Keuchel maybe

          • ebudz says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Ha well clearly I don’t know how to assess SPs correctly! So you’re saying Keuchel is the only SP he has that’s better than my SPs? Interesting I thought Lester might be a good return for Ray since he seems down on him but what do I know!? … and plus he just traded for Ervin Santana (clearly he didn’t read your SELL) and he stashed Duffy (who I dropped) and jumped at the chance to take Berrios off my hands in our last trade sooo…

            But anywho I messaged him asking him to choose from the potential offer of Ray/Haniger/Owings and JBJ for Trumbo/Keuchel so we’ll see what he says/offers! Appreciate your assistance!

    Hey Grey
    looking for some streamer help to help my pitching staff which includes….Bumgarner, E.Rod, D.Duffy, A.Chapman, D.Salazar, T.walker and C.Morton. this is getting ridiculous. I think that the 10 day DL is the worst thing to happen to fantasy baseball in a long time. Leagues need to add 2 extra DL slots just to cover the triage units managers are running out there.
    Could you let me know your top 3?

    2. drop valbuena for headley or sandoval or hicks (DET, plays less than valbuena but is doing well)
    3. rajai has been awful for a while, doesn’t start all the time and has 4 net steals on the year (which is 2nd on my team to delino’s 7), drop him for any/which of: EYJ/g.heredia/chisenhall presley (amazing how much deeper OF is than MI in this league or CI)
    4. same people as rajai question, but for mancini, but at least he hits for decent OBP with his crappy counting stats and disappeared HR’s after he sold out his HR’s to hit baseballs for contact apparently.

    Last night I dropped Neris for Rivera and of course Hurdle says today that Watson is staying the closer. Did I make the wrong move? Is Watson still on thin enough ice that it warrants holding onto Rivera over Neris. It just doesn’t seem like they trust Neris completely and he only has 5 saves on the year.

    • Fred Garvin MP says:
      (link)

      @bossmanjunior333: Likely the wrong move at the moment, but equally likely that Hurdle is being an idiot as per usual. You can take solace in the fact that Rivero is the best pitcher of those 3, and Watson is not likely long for that job due to his own ineptitude and Rivero being a vastly superior pitcher.

    ok, the FIRST time i think to drop the king he goes 2 doubles, triple, single IN ONE DAY! let me go find how long it took him to do this before today (IF he has no triple this year yet i’ll allow a HR to count of course or a 3rd double). ok, you have to go back to may 18th vs BOS to find the last 2 doubles, 1 HR (in place of the triple) and obv a single in his season. he just TODAY moved his OPS right next to .600 and moved his season OPS up to .598 from .543.

    20 team dynasty with holds/QS/k per 9/relief wins/relief appearances.
    we start 7 RP (team is based around TEX and needs minimum number of them at all times, i meet the minimum for now)
    SP (6 max) edison/cobb/darvish/archer/lamet (with lament, should’ve been your lead)/hahn (with andriese/morton in DL slots, probably dropping edison for andriese later)
    RP -giles/jeffress/fields/hembree/phelps/hoover/kela
    DL morton/diekman/andriese
    NA urias/mendez/barrett

    got an offer from the BOS owner of law + leclerc for hembree
    -hembree comes in mostly in the 7th, no holds since the 26th (but those are notorious teamly dependent), has been used for multi inning last 3 times out and all 3 times since last hold. rosterresource has him like 5th away from closer though.
    – fields best FIP worst role (for NOW, and he’d seem to be my drop if i did that trade)
    – law best role worst FIP
    – leclerc barely used (rosterresource claims he’s 3rd in line man, monkey has claudio) but pretty good stats (innings don’t qualify at razzball but by fangraphs has him at 1.48 FIP)

    another option would be to do the trade and not make fields the drop but jeffress. this is riskier though if leclerc were to either lose job entirely or jeffress were to get as good as he was at MIL and be useful.

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

      @John Lettiere: One of the shortcomings of projection systems (algorithms) is that they are slow to notice adjustments. However, this can be good thing as they are not as susceptible to recency bias and base their projections on a very large sample size.

      Not likely on the Chris Davis career year comp.

    Some guy dropped Matt Carpenter in my league – are you expecting him to turn things around? My drop would be Jumbo Trumbo or Crush Davis in this case… though I’m leaning towards staying put since his counting stats the past few years are pretty meh. He gets a slight boost in my league’s format since we count Ks and OBP.

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: carp’s getting very unlucky and still supplying a very decent OPS considering the average. when you have K’s AND OBP it’s more than a slight boost.
