Yesterday, Shane Bieber went 9 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 1 walk, 10 Ks, ERA at 3.44. Donkey Teeth and I made a trade the other day. My first trade of the year. I sent him Kenley Jansen for Shane Bieber. I discuss it on this week’s podcast. I receive Shane Bieber in this trade…TOMORROW! I don’t even want him now! He’s tainted with Donkey Teeth juice. That one-hitter is supposed to be mine! Mine, I say! Only thing worse would’ve been he threw a one-hitter and broke his hand high-fiving Bauer. Ugh, why couldn’t Donkey Teeth offer the trade the day before so I had Bieber on my team? I want him. Me! Me! Me! *Idris Elba opens an envelope* “…and Best Dramatic Retelling of a Fantasy Baseball Trade goes to…Some guy in his mom’s basement you never heard of.” Damn, I lost that too!  Donkey Teeth offered me Rhys Hoskins, Madison Bumgarner or Bieber and I jumped at the lattest (totally a word), because Bieber’s peripherals are gorge — 11.2 K/9, 2 BB/9, 3.19 xFIP. Bieber was a preseason sleeper of mine, and he is essentially a top ten pitcher. So, put that in your natch and natch it!  Too bad I own him in one less league as of yesterday.  Me!  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Paul DeJong – 4-for-4, 4 runs, 5 RBIs and his 16th, 17th and 18th homer, hitting .258.  Colonel Mustard in the stables with the horse tranquilizer! Colonel Mustard in the massage parlor’s bathroom with a bottle of lotion! Colonel Mustard in the parking lot of his niece’s school with binoculars!  What the hell is Colonel Mustard doing?  Greek chorus, “Hitting home runs, like everyone else.”

Paul Goldschmidt – 2-for-5, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 21st homer, 3rd homer in three games.  Au Shizz!

Yairo Munoz – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI and his 6th and 7th steal, hitting .300.  *sees a guy stealing bases instead of hitting home runs, sits up in seat* Tell me more.

Jameson Taillon – Shut down from throwing and will visit more doctors about his elbow. I don’t have a doctor degree.  I’m so dumb I call a medical degree a ‘doctor degree.’ How’sever, when Taillon went down, without examining him, I could’ve told you he’s done for the year, and maybe next year.

Jordan Lyles – 1 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 5.36.  Three quick homers allowed made this Jordan’s pitches flew game. In case it was not abundantly clear, the Giants aren’t the only terrible offense that is suddenly hitting again. Watch out for the Cardinals.

Starling Marte – 4-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, hitting .288. Hit home runs or get out of my roundup!

Rougned Odor – 1-for-4, and his 18th homer, his 4th homer in three days and fifth homer this week, so I need to scream it.  Metaphorically.  Check out these numbers:  41/13/41/.302/7 in 192 ABs. That’s roughly a 110/35/110/15 pace.  That was what Odor did last July/August combined. I know he’s burned you before; I’ve been burned too.  I am literally soaking in a bathtub filled with Calamine lotion I’ve been burned so many times, but you have to pick him up.

Joey Gallo – Will visit a hand specialist.  Hopefully, that doesn’t mean a palm reader.  There’s some mumblings he has a broken hamate bone, and this feels like it’s trending towards Gallo being out a while. Might want to form a prayer hexagon and bow your heads.

Mike Minor – 6 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.00 vs. Mike Leake – 7 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.25. This matchup was billed as, “Mike’ing a Minor/Leake, a subreddit you don’t want to go into.”

Daniel Vogelbach – 2-for-4, and his 24th and 25th homer, hitting .233.  The Jelly Donut of Swat is bringin’ sexy ‘bach!  Hey, Khris Davis owners, you wanna cry? According to the Player Rater, Vogelbach’s been better than Davis, and it’s not close.

Addison Russell – Optioned to the minors. Going on eBay to put penny bid on the world’s smallest violin just for Addison.

Jon Lester – Was scratched with an illness. Lester said, “I feel ill,” then the Beastie Boys screamed, “Time to get ill!”  Then Lester said, “No, man, seriously, I’m gonna puke.”

Willson Contreras – 1-for-4 as he was activated from the IL. Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “I know Karen in Accounting is religious, which is why I asked her if she listens to Coldpray, not because she’s Asian.”

Kris Bryant – Hit his 21st homer, but left the game with knee soreness. That’s usually a day-to-day thing, unlike née soreness, which takes a trip to City Hall to correct.

Tyler Beede – 5 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 4.85. Just when I buy into Beede on all my teams, he does this. Fantasy Baseball: When Everyday Stress Isn’t Enough.

J.T. Realmuto – 1-for-4 and his 12th homer, hitting .267. It’s going on, like, twelve years (guesstimating) that it’s paid to punt catcher. Member last year with Gary Sanchez and Contreras?  Member the Lucroy is a 2nd rounder years?  Member that Joe Mauer in the 1st round year? I’m gasp-laughing.

Vince Velasquez – 5 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.46.  If it’s not Pineda or Pivetta, it’s Velasquez being a guy I have a hard time ever saying no to, ugh, and Streamonator likes his next start.  He is my kryptonite!  Damn, just when you thought it couldn’t get worse, now I’m singing 3 Doors Down!

David Price – 6 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.66.  Price has settled into a solid 3.50 to 3.75 ERA pitcher, which, in today’s game, is basically an ace. Or as David Price would say, “Eff you, Eck.”

Charlie Morton – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.60. Morton’s making me eat my words about selling him, and he sure is salty.

Tommy Pham – 1-for-3 and a slam (16) and legs (11). Overdue for a good game, as he was hitting around .215 in the month of July. Be interesting to see if he turns it on in August as he did last year. Though if he’s following last year’s script, I believe he would need a season-ending injury that he comes back from in five days and becomes the hottest hitter in the game.

Dinelson Lamet – 4 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 5.00. For whatever reason, what I keep saying is not getting through because people keep asking about Lamet. He has a career 4.63 ERA. He is 27 years old. He is not stretched out, due to surgery. There’s next to nothing here, outside of deep leagues.

Noah Syndergaard – 7 IP, 3 ER, 13 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 4.33. Imagine your excitement when you hear he’s traded.  Now imagine he’s traded to the Rockies.

Nick Senzel – Left yesterday’s game with dizziness. Sounds like no big deal until you realize he’s had vertigo more times than Jimmy Stewart in San Francisco. I wonder if the hammer in his ear is discombobulated and why he keeps having setbacks every time he joins the Reds. “Where’s my sickle? You can’t touch this.”  That’s his ear hammer, sounding mezzo-stunod. Kidding aside, I’m concerned, a reappearance of this is not good for him.

Justin Verlander – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.86. Maybe it’s the Texas thing, but Verlander feels like the closest we have to Nolan Ryan for sheer staying power–Okay, just looked at Nolan Ryan’s numbers, and he had a 2.91 ERA and 203 Ks at the age of 44 and nearly won the Cy Young at the age of 42 with 301 Ks!  Haha, how does he not have a Cy Young? He has years with a FIP of 2.28 and an ERA of 1.69!

Jose Altuve – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer, hitting .287.  Now has three homers this week, and is hitting near-.400 in the last week. I don’t own him, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m hoping he has a big 2nd half so he’s overdrafted again next year.

Brad Keller – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.95 vs. Julio Teheran – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.42. Now that I mentioned it yesterday that it feels like there’s better pitching after the All-Star break, you’re totally thinking it too, aren’t you?

Ryan Braun – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer, hitting.274. Now has three homers in 47 July at-bats, when he only had three homers in 93 June at-bats. He’s doubled his homers! (Look at the big brain on Grey!) Maybe the advice of Bellinger at the All-Star break, and ignoring the council of Counsell has helped Braun.

Keston Hiura – 1-for-4 and his 10th homer, hitting .327. Thankfully, he’s still batting towards the bottom of the order, between Thames and Arcia. Don’t want Keston building confidence or anything.

Freddy Peralta – 1 IP, 0 ER and his 1st save, ERA at 4.79. Ladies with perms and men who love them, your new Brewers closer!  Maybe.  I don’t know. Counsell said yesterday, with his trademark flip of the microphone upside down, Peralta’s “stuff fits in the 9th.” As I’ve been saying, the Brewers have longed to move Hader into the 7th/8th inning to shorten the game, and Peralta has a 2.32 ERA in 31 relief innings (coming into yesterday).  Then again, Jhoulys Chacin is headed back to the IL, so the Brewers have three starters and might need Peralta there. Then again then again, Freddy has sucked as a starter and they can’t stretch him out in time to start.  With all of this said, I grabbed Peralta in every league for saves.

Gary Sanchez – Hit the IL with a groin strain.  Gary has almost as many problems with his groin as John Wayne Bobbitt. Put a steel pod around your ding-dong, Sanchez! On a related note, Sanchez’s previous month? Well, keeping with the groin theme, he’s sucked balls.

Aaron Hicks – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer, and 2nd homer in two days, and third or fourth dagger to the Twins’ heart. Hey, Hicks, if you’re trying to win ALCS MVP, you have to wait until the postseason.

J.A. Happ – 3 1/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 5.23. I don’t often have awful teams, but it occurred this year. Thankfully, I have every terrible pick I made all on the same team. J.A.nkee Doodie Dandy is just one of many duds there (Giancarlo, Alvarado, the list goes on).

Jake Odorizzi – 4 IP, 9 ER, ERA at 3.84.  Bear with me here because I’m wearing a tin foil hat, but could it be possible that Odorizzi and Odor are the universe’s yin and yang and when one does well, the other has to do poorly? *looks at Odorizzi’s peripherals* Oh, no, this was just a correction.

Luis Arraez – 2-for-3, 2 runs, hitting .379. He doesn’t hit home runs, but I’ve been meaning to mention him a few times and pulled back because I had to mention Nelson Cruz (2-for-4, 2 runs and his 22nd homer) or Eddie Rosario (2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 22nd homer) or even Marwin Gonzalez (1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer), but Arraez has been hitting near-.380 for a while now and he never strikes out. Could Arraez have ate what Astudillo’s was cooking? Metaphorically, yes. Physically, impossible.

Blake ParkerTwins designated him for assignment.  If the Angels claim him and make him their closer, I will remove my pants in a public place and wait for the police to lock me up.

Justin Turner – 3-for-4 and his 14th homer.  “I think it’s just a red shag carpet. You can throw it away–Holy crap!  It just moved! Oh my God, it’s Justin Turner!”

Kole Calhoun – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 23rd homer, and 2nd homer in a row.  Calhoun always hits two homers in two games, and never hits three homers in three games. You can look it up.

Reynaldo Lopez – 8 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 5.52. Look who it is, a guy who did well last 2nd half thinking he can just waltz in here and do well again in this 2nd half. Wait a minute! He might be a 2nd half pitcher. Okay, might just be a cyclops’ing if your league is shallow, but also could see grabbing him.

Zac Gallen – 7 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.76. This is bonkers, but if Gallen and Caleb Smith are your top two starters, what team’s got better?  Astros?  Okay. Indians?  All right. Dodgers?  Meh, okay. Washington? All right. Anyone else? Am I forgetting someone?

Patrick Corbin – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.25. Since someone will say it in response to the Gallen question, yes, the Nats have three.

Jon Gray – Left the game due to a calf injury, but x-rays were negative and reportedly they couldn’t even “find a cow, let alone a calf,” so he should be fine for his next start.

Anthony Santander – 2-for-4 and his 8th homer, his 2nd homer in as many games, 4th homer this week, hitting third, a crazy hot schmotato, and now suddenly vying for the worst Friday Buy column lede.

Trey Mancini – 1-for-4 and his 22nd homer, and 5th homer in the last seven games. The Orioles players are hitting like they’re in an intersquad game.

John Means – 3 1/3 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 3.12. Visual metaphor alert!  The Orioles’ front office carries John Means in and places him on a card table set up at the Antiques Roadshow. The appraiser looks at him and says, “Maybe you can fetch a prospect who is a middle reliever or possibly the Red Sox will give you a backup backup backup catcher.”

Carson Kelly – 1-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 12th homer.  Let’s rewind back to March when y’all thought I had Dumb Donald operating my frontal lobe, due to my ranking of Kelly. Okay, he hasn’t been incredible, but he’s got the same number of homers and nearly same average as Realmuto.

Yoan Lopez – 1 IP, 0 ER and his 1st save, ERA at 2.72, as Greg Holland (o IP, 0 ER, 2 walks) might’ve finally punched his ticket to Shizzville, population: Him, after he threw eight of nine pitches for balls. Grabbed Yoan Lopez in one league, because why not? So, YoLo YOLO.

David Peralta – 0-for-1 as he didn’t start but was activated from the IL. Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “I’m surprised no one laughed when I said, ‘I’m gonna make like a Schreiber and Liev.’ No Ray Donovan fans?”

    Grey!!!

    What a report from such a fine gentleman!

    a. On Senzel, way back in 1994 I went to see an ear, nose and throat (or ENT) specialist. He asked me if I wanted to remove the wax from my ears. I go, sure whatever turns your crank. So with this microvacuum, he vacuumed up the ear wax that had built up since 1967. True story, the ball of wax he removed from my ear (that was collected in the vacuum) weighed about 0.3527 ounces and was about 1/3 the size of a ping pong ball or the size of a smaller marble! And that’s in Croatia in 1994. Now flash forward to 2019 in the best medical facility in the Cincinnati GMA. That’s where Senzel should be and I’m sure they’ll have something way better than Croatia 1994.

    b. Abbott and Costello quote of the day for July 25

    Still in Keep ’em Flying (1941)

    Jinx gets up to try and dance with Linda (if you’re following from yesterday). She rejects him, of course. Abbott and Costello see him dancing with her on the dance floor.

    Costello: We’re gonna have union trouble. Get a load of that guy.

    Abbott: Looks bad.

    Costello: I oughta picket the guy.

    Abbott: Well, let’s do it. Let’s make a sign.

    Costello: That’s what we’ll do.

    Abbott: You got a pencil?

    Costello: No.

    Costello sees an elderly woman putting on lipstick sitting with her husband at a table close by.

    Costello: Wait a minute. I’ll get something.

    Costello [to the elderly lady]: I beg your pardon. Can I have your lipstick for a minute?

    Elderly lady: Sure, dearie. Here’s some bobby pins in case you want to put your hair up.

    Costello: Here’s a cigar in case you want to smoke.

    Elderly lady’s husband: Here’s a punch in the nose in case you want to fight!

    Lou returns to his table, counting stars.

    Costello: Here’s your $10 in case you want to quit the union.

    Abbott puts the 10$ in his pocket.

    Abbott: We’ll talk about that later. Let’s make the sign.

    Cheers,
    Ante

        a. No ping pong was played, no bounce in that ball of wax.

        b. Thought I’d give you a break today and only input 2 entries…a and b. but….

        c. This is my current terrible bullpen.

        Rogers (SAGNOF)
        Kennedy (SAGNOF)
        Chris Martin
        Andres Munoz

        This bundle of joy (plus other crap I had and dumped) has scored me 5th in saves (58). 3rd is 63 and 8th is 53 and I think I can still make some hay, maybe up to 3rd. Speculating on which potential closer in waiting would be best ROS. So, who would be the best (produce the best results) and who has the best chance of being the closer after August 1? Or do I just keep both?

        1. Martin
        2. Munoz

        d. Who do you like ROS in an RCL where I need Ks and need to make a dent in W?

        1. Gallen (on waivers ’til tomorrow because I put him there)
        2. Pineda
        3. Reynaldo Lopez

        I wanted to drop Pineda and pick up Gallen after his start tomorrow night, meaning Gallen would be free for 24 hours. I could also put in a claim right away, dropping Lopez.

    I watched Bieber’s start last night and after three innings I said he had no-hitter stuff (and not just because he was facing my Jays). Off by one, just like streamonator! Dude’s command is amazing, then you combine it with the movement on his pitches, and then you add your theory on how pitchers who don’t throw too hard may have an advantage this year… so yeah, basically you’re going to enjoy him on your team, I think.

    A couple of questions:
    – Freddy Peralta or Hunter Strickland (about to return)?
    – Amed Rosario or Senzel (worrying about his vertigo)?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:

      I’ll take Strickland but it’s a coin flip.
      I prefer Senzel but Rosario is hot so I’d take him in the short term.

    yay! Have both Caleb Smith and Gallen… Shame that the rest of my pitchers are just plain bad.

    Question, can Lopez be owned? Should I drop Heaney for him? Or should I drop Vargas? (I’m attached to Heaney since he helped me last year down the stretch to win my league).

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      All three of those guys are probably streamers unless your league is really deep. I’d probably just stick with Heaney and Vargas if it is deep.

    Carson Kelly would have better stats if the Dbacks didnt carry 3 catchers for so long. They didnt dfa the law firm (John Ryan Murphy) until may 25. They actually had 4 catchers on their roster when they signed swihart on April 19 although he was playing other positions. Seriously who the F carries 3 catchers? Avila still gets more time than he deserves. Let the kid play more. And, how about moving him up in the order? He hits 8th despite having .354 obp. Even worse, he kills lefties and was hitting 8th yesterday vs one. His stats vs lhp. .385 avg, .475 obp, .808 slg, 1.283 OPS. Damn

    Hi Grey. Hi DT, Hi Razzball!

    What it is!

    Excellent recap, Grey. Hope the desert is treating you better!

    I’ve got a corner infield problem in my deep 14-team h2h league. Was riding Chavis but he’s got a bad back and Moreland’s back (and might be bad as well).

    Other options are: Moreland, Profar, Smoak, Franco, Matt Adams, K Seager… Basically everyone hitting sub .220. Ugh.

    Anyone you like more than Chavis? Or any names (around 5% owned) I should look out for? TIA.

    Hey Grey/DT/Coolwhip,

    Which two SP for the next couple weeks?

    Junis ($10 v CLE/$15 v TOR)
    M. Perez ($8 @ CWS/$6 v KC)
    Desclafani ($22 v COL/$-1 @ ATL)

    In a 10 tm H2H do you guys think Dejong or Hicks are worth rostering? I owned Dejong until about halfway thru June. He was awesome for those first two months, wondering if he can get back to where he was with this boost yesterday. Would drop Mercado or Joc.

        No, No sorry if that wasn’t clear. I dropped Dejong about midway thru June when he started slumping hard and was wondering if it was time to pick him up AGAIN.

        Maybe Goldy coming out of his year-long slump serves as some protection in the lineup for Dejong

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Ah, yeah, that makes sense… Sure, grab DeJong

    ***bulk alert***

    Short schedule, few bulk options. Royals have said Montgomery is capped at 65 pitches tonight, so opportunities for multiple innings there, if not a true “bulk.” Flynn and Jorge Lopez prime candidates for that role (coin flip).

    Mornin DT/Grey,

    for a 12 team 5×5 roto, who do you like for his next start and ROS? Marquez (@CIN) or Lucchesi(SF)?

    Its annoying sitting a guy for all his home starts, but Marquez is so solid on the road its hard to see him on the waiver wire

    Thanks!

            im glad you agree!

            Also, a Hader and Paddack owner, do you think packaging them for Kershaw is not getting enough back? what elite starters are worth the price of those two guys?

            I have Yates, Hand, Will Smtih, and Leclerc (speculative save ops returning) for saves and lead the saves category by 55…also would add Munoz in case Yates gets moved.

    Sale and Abreu for Freeman in a vacuum. Keeper league with Freeman $18 and Sale $22 salaries this year. Thanks

      Abreu can’t be kept? Or his salary doesn’t matter?

      I’d prob want Freeman anyway, but tbh Keepers aren’t my thing so I prob shouldnt be giving advice

      • uncle ernie says:
        (link)

        Abreu salary $23 plus his numbers not near Freeman’s. Sale history show 2 nd half usually not as strong as 1 half.

      Sale/Abreu in a vacuum, but when you mention keeper prices, vacuums go out the window

      • uncle ernie says:
        (link)

        Guess what it comes down to is would I rather keep Sale for $22 or Freeman for $18 since I’m not a real Abreu fan. I’m more inclined to keep Freeman than Sale so guess I just answered my own question but thanks

    Oh boy, I dodged a bullet in several leagues on starting Domingo German. Kept going back and forth on whether to start him and by the time I went to move him into an active role rosters locked. *whew*

        Appreciate yah!

        You passing on Suarez because you think the O’s offense is waking up, or just that Suarez is “not good”. Somehow, his value went up from $10 to $13 in a few hours. Is the wind or something blowing in in Los Angeles?

        Would you drop him and swap him for Martin Perez @ CWS Saturday ($9.0+ as of today). I also picked up Junis per SON, but he’s on the bench currently while on Maternity leave. Facing CLE at home, just dont know when he’s starting or who the opposing SP is.

        Really just needing as many W’s as I can get from 7 starters between now and Sunday.

          There is Santa Ana winds, so maybe

    I am in dead last place in my 11 team roto keeper, should i accept this deal?

    Currently weighing a trade situation in my auction keeper league. If you were to make a way too early list of top 2b for next year, where would Hiura fall on that list?

    Anyway – not sure how much Paddack will be pitching in August with the innings cap. I thought maybe to trade him, or I can keep him for an 11th round pick next year. Keep him or try to trade for Bichette?

    Travis D’Arnaud is avail, as well as Peralta. Do I pick up either for any of

    What’s good Grey? Currently in 2nd place in my 12-team, H2H, keeper league and am considering proposing the following trade to keep Betts from going to the 1st place owner.

    I give Sale, Torres, Benintendi, and Robles
    I get Betts, Albies, and Odorizzi

    The other owner would end up keeping probably three of the guys I’m sending so could be enticing for him. I would then keep Arenado, Turner, Yelich, Betts, Bauer, and Corbin at that point.

    What do you think?

        Your Yacht Rock Song-of-the-Day is “Brandy” by Looking Glass. To me this is more of a 70s song than it is “yacht rock” per se, but it does check off enough of criteria. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVx8L7a3MuE

        (1) There aren’t any politically incorrect lyrics, but you can’t argue that hundreds of sailors telling Brandy that she’s a “fine girl” and “what a good wife she would be” isn’t blatantly sexist.

        (2) The song refers to multiple relationships: (a) Brandy wears a locket with the name of a sailor who brings her exotic gifts; (b) All the sailors who are in love with the sea; and (c) All these sailors that Brandy “throws whisky down” for are undoubtedly hitting on her on a nightly basis.

        (3) Thankfully there is no random instrument solo in the middle of the song.

        (4) There isn’t any use of an obscure instrument.

        (5) There are maritime references all over the place, which in my opinion is the reason why it’s considered “yacht rock” as opposed to just a 70’s song.

    Lester isn’t a recommended stream @ MIL on Sat right? I was gonna drop him for Marquez

    Also down 10-2 this week so far (out of 14 cats) to the 2nd place team, so the free fall looks like it’s going to continue. Was looking at my team – what’s your strategy in H2H this late in the game? I SHOULD make the playoffs still, but unlikely to place in the top 2 and get a 1st round bye. The biggest culprit is on the pitching side SAGNOF and all. Here is my team currently:
    C- Contreras
    1B- Bellinger
    2B- Lourdes
    3B- Kingery
    SS- Lindor
    OF- Laureano, Betts, Alvarez
    UTIL- Story
    B- Benintendi, Dahl
    DL- Mondesi

    SP- Lester, Archer, Hendricks, Lynn, Flaherty, Urquidy
    SAGNOF- Hendriks, Givens, Neris, Martin, Holland

    I have 4 moves left this week, so I can drop both Lester and/or Archer for Marquez. Archer’s next start is @NYM, while the other guy I can swap out for Fiers whose next start is v. TEX or another RP like Nick Anderson, Freddy Peralta, or whoever ARI decides to replace Holland with, but that could be a wasted move since none of those guys are actual closers yet.

    In terms of bats, I’ve been thinking of dropping Benintendi for Matt Olson and then having an OF of Betts, Bellinger, and Laureano/Alvarez, and then also dropping Lourdes since he seems to be cooling off for Hiura or Odor – though the difference might be pretty small. What do you think I should do?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d lose Lester

      Your SPs are a bit of a mess… I don’t trust Archer, Lynn or Urquidy… I don’t mind them, I guess, if matchups okay, but in a shallow mixed league, they’re not great — you have so many bats, you can’t fix your pitching?

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        Trading isn’t an option since nobody wants to help me win 4 in a row. I need to get creative here… which is what I was hoping to get from SON and nail streaming

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Gotcha… You prolly need to be more fluid with who you own then as far as SPs

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            That’s why I’ve been rolling with guys like Fiers and Hendricks – sure the Ks and K/9s aren’t great but they are rock solid with ratios. If I can just nail down the SAGNOFs and rely on 7-8 SVs per week, then I’d be fine. It’s been a struggle all around.

            I like Lynn cause lately, even when he gives up a few runs, I still get quality Ks and K/9. I’ve made so many mistakes with my pitching when looking back on the year… capped off with trading Pete Alonso earlier in the year for Jack Flaherty

    I have Gallo and Domingo in a 12-team AL-only. Both of them hit the bricks. Just so happens that a guy asked me to trade him Cole for Lemahieu and Pham. We only roster 9 pitchers per team and I have Bieber/up in Ks by a lot.

    Would you do this deal? Best replacements for Gallo/Domingo are as follows (single-day waiver, so no guarantee I get any of them):

    Odor
    Goodrum
    Bauers
    Profar
    Naquin
    Aledmys

      • pinkman says:
        (link)

        I agree, it’s just that my team’s offense is so flat that I’ve dropped 10 points in Roto the last week and fallen out of 1st. I need a hitting boost and can’t count on picking up Odor. Lemahieu looks like a legit Top 20 guy rest of the way in AL only, and Pham is solid all-around contributor.

      Losing Smith would be tough on a SP staff. I think it’s too much to ask, but depends on where things stand as far as SP stats go.

    Fairly good options on the wire and have been working SON well recently (Urquidy and Armenteros starts). I want to believe in Reynaldo’s velocity (T99mph) and his historically strong 2h’s. Worth holding the both of them or continue to stream?

    If Hader gets moved to being a set-up man and Diaz goes down to injury, I might just lose my shizz.

    Going to pick up a replacement for DominGOD before the weekend as I think the M’s are going to put him on the DL either today or tomorrow. Thinking Santander, but there’s also Cano, Dickerson, Ervin, & Tauchman (OBP/SLG% league). What say you?

    Another owner says he’s willing to part with Muncy if I move him a keeper starter pitcher. Sale, Bauer, Corbin, and Grienke (perhaps not due to age) are the only keeper starting pitchers on my staff (others are Stroman, Lester, Chirinos, and Lamet). Which of those four would you move for Muncy straight up knowing that you’d be keeping the other three together with the rest of the staff? Thank you!

    Yo! Regarding Senzel, I have vertigo. Have had it for 30 years. It’s gnarly. Usually an episode is so bad I can’t really move without losing balance for at least a day if not two or three. Then it takes weeks to feel right after. Everyone’s different, but I’ve always been concerned about Senzel’s career because of it. Also, for me at least, looking up is almost always how it’s triggered. So, not a great thing for an outfielder.

      Eek, that sucks, man… My friend, who was a DP, had it… He had surgery on his ear to fix it and feels better now… Have you looked into it?

        *is a DP (thanks to the surgery)

      • Hugman says:
        (link)

        I don’t think there’s surgery for the kind I have, and I’m not certain if Senzel’s is the same kind I have. It happens because of free floating particles in your inner ear getting lodged in such a way that fucks you up real good. the treatment is a series of maneuvers to dislodge the particles, but I’ve never found it to be any sort of instant relief type thing. Put me in touch with your DP friend!

    So my league goes until the end of the week of Sep 16…think I can drop Gallo? Conditions for him coming back are steep:

    He needs surgery T-T-T-TODAY JUNYA or by the weekend
    He’s out (at least) a month
    He resumes baseball activities at the best by Aug 26
    He goes out for rehab at best by week of Sep 2 or 9
    And then he only keeps playing if Rangers are still in playoff contention?

    Seems incredibly unlikely he plays this year again, same thing with Mondesi. Hang on to Gallo or Mondesi or let go of both? lol trying to wait until we hear an update on Mondesi later today or tmw
