It’s time we address the elephant in the room.  Not you, Sandoval.  I mean that one-time absurdist comedian and Red Sox knuckleballer, Steven Wright, has a 2.01 ERA in almost 100 IP after yesterday’s line of 9 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 6 Ks.  The Red Sox are so happy with him they are currently combing the minor league rosters for other Boston comic namelgangers, except for any Dane Cooks because people are going to see his Shocker pitch from a mile away.  Denis Leary has some decent pitches he stole from other pitchers, and he keeps trying to smoke his teammates’ chew.  While Lenny Clarke is a Quad-A pitcher, who everyone says is a great teammate, a real pitcher’s pitcher.  None are Steven Wright though.  Christian Vazquez came up to the mound during yesterday’s game and told Steven Wright he could throw a knuckleball at any time, and Steven Wright said, “I decided to throw one during the Renaissance.”  I did some dirty math on my own fantasy team where I have a 4.03 ERA (yup, my pitching is a mess!).  If I had Steven Wright on my team, I’d have a 3.74 ERA — a quarter of a run better — and an extra three points.  So, as a Bostonian would say, fahk me for not picking him up in April.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Rusney Castillo – Placed on waivers and no one claimed him.  So, he will go to Triple-A Pawtucket.  You ever get a wart that you think you got rid of, but then it reappears, again and again?  That’s Rusney for the Red Sox.

David Peralta – Hit the DL, and Socrates Brito (0-for-3) was called up.  When you hear Socrates, you naturally think of opening a Christmas gift and it’s a set of storage crates, leading you to say, “So…crates.”  Or you think of the philosopher.  Whatever, I’m not in your mind.  Thankfully!  Brito has nice power and speed, and I could see him being worth a grab in some deeper leagues; he will likely platoon, though.

Shelby Miller – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks as he returned to the rotation after being miserable.  Oh, wait, he was activated from the DL.  Yeah, like he was really injured.  Maybe butthurt.  This was a solid game for Miller, but it was against the Phils’ B lineup led by Andres Blanco (1-for-4, 1 run), Cameron Rupp (1-for-4) and Tyler Goeddel (2-for-3, 1 RBI).  By the by, Goeddel sounds like a Nazi; Rupp sounds like his first name should be Adolph and Blanco is white.  Is the Phils’ lineup code for white supremacists?  As for Miller, he goes to Coors next.  Yeah, I’d watch from the sidelines on that.

Jake Lamb – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 14th homer.  I don’t want to Billy Bragg but I’d give my blood for some Lamb, Roger Wilco.

Jean Segura – 2-for-4, 1 run, hitting .307.  Since I had some time yesterday on a short slate of games and with people in comments talking about dropping Segura, I decided to look at his stats.  He’s hitting over .300 in June, but has one homer since April 26th and only four steals.  Yeah, Villar does that in, like, a game.  I’m not crazy about dropping Segura — good team, great park, top of the lineup — but I understand more where people are coming from.  I’m empathic unlike the killer in Luther.

Jeremy Hellickson – 7 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.41.  Serious question:  Hellickson or Shelby Miller?  I’d lean Hellickson, but it is a toss up.

Maikel Franco – Didn’t start yesterday because he’s in a bad funk and looks scared of the ball.  Call him Ballphobias Fünke.

Vince Velasquez – Will make a rehab start on Wednesday then should return the following week, assuming everything goes well.  Just remember assuming makes an ass out of U and Ming the Merciless.

Mikie Mahtook – Was hit by a pitch and fractured his hand.  Mikie apparently Mahtook an inside pitch for an outside one.  The Rays are weighing signing Carl Crawford.  I don’t believe they mean that as in, “We’re gonna sign him for one day so he can retire a Ray.”

Steve Pearce – Left yesterday’s game with a hamstring injury.  That’s the last time the Rays attempt to spark their offense by getting a team-wide blood transfusion from Tulowitzki.

Drew Smyly – 7 IP, 4 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.78.  You realize Smyly’s now playing possum with you, right?  “Look, look, Smyly’s pitching well, go grab him…”  Move closer and he bites your finger.  Smyly has rabies.  You heard it here first.

Evan Longoria – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 18th homer, hitting .278.  I enjoy giving him the business, but he’s currently tied for third in the majors for homers.  Might be time to forgive Longoria’s multi-year waltz towards mediocrity and being the ultimate plonker.

Brad Miller – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 9th homer, hitting .238.  Since June 11th, he has four homers, and three homers in his last four games.  Hot schmotato alert!

Juan Uribe – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer.  Hard for me to suggest you pick him up in any league, but he always does this, and now has three games in a row with a homer.

Carlos Santana – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer, hitting .230.  You heard of Robert Redford in The Natural, well, Carlos Santana would star in The Supernatural.  An inspired Mexican tale about one hitter-slash-guitarist that gets a hit every fifteen years.

Francisco Lindor – 3-for-4, 2 runs and a slam (8) and legs (12), hitting .314.  You know what kind of season he’s having?  A poor man’s Xander Bogaerts.  I will call him Po’gaerts.

Giancarlo Stanton – 2-for-4 and his 13th homer.  Last week, I put Play-Doh into a set of rubber gloves and formed them in the shape of how they would appear on Giancarlo’s thighs if I had the chance to give him a proper massage.  Now, it was a complete lark to try and send those filled rubber gloves via DHL to Giancarlo, but it seems the message was received!  Hit homers or I will stalk you in weirder, less understandable ways!

Marcell Ozuna – 2-for-4 and two solo homers (14, 15), and has three homers in the last two games.  OZUNA hit balls far.  OZUNA will never see those balls again.  OZUNA know Loria sell game-played balls in parking lot after game.

Mark Reynolds – 2-for-3 and two homers (5, 6).  Mini Donkey!  (Old times’ sake.)

Trevor Story – 1-for-3 and his 18th homer.  The Trevorending Story!  (New times’ sake.)

Charlie Blackmon – 3-for-5 and his 8th homer.  Chazz Blackmonteri!  (Never times’ sake.)

Nick Hundley – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer.  Yup, I immediately looked about picking him up in my leagues.  Guilty as charged.

Stephen Strasburg – Was scratched yesterday with an upper back strain.  You know, the same strain he had early last year that caused him to have a 10+ ERA for a month.  I can tell you remember because your eye is twitching.

Yusmeiro Petit – 6 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks.  I love how so many pitchers take ten games to get stretched out *cough* Danny Duffy *cough* and Yusmeiro fills in for Strasburg in his first start of the year and goes six innings.  Petit will have nice NL-Only value if Strasburg is sidelined for more than one start.

Justin Turner – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, and six homers in the last eleven games, and I’ve told you to pick him up about that many times.  Whenever you’re ready, guys and five girls.

Joc Pederson – 1-for-3 and his 13th homer, and 2nd homer in the last three games.  No idea if he’ll ever hit .240 or steal a base, but has shown 30-homer power, which isn’t terrible for a 24-year-old.

Matt Duffy – Hit the DL with Achilles discomfort.  Pfft, Achilles was never out with Matt Duffy discomfort.

Madison Bumgarner – 8 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 1.85.  The only trouble for him was Kratz, which gives Bumgarner something in common with Steven Avery.

Jeff Locke – 6 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 5.44.  Locke was assisted by Kratz, which gives him a lot in common with Andrew Colborn.  How was he calling in the license plate?!

Mallex Smith – Could miss more than six weeks with a fractured thumb, and surgery might be necessary.  Damn, he did a number on his digit.

Kevin Gausman – 5 IP, 4 ER, 10 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.37.  Meh, bleh, whatevs, but the Stream-o-Nator loves his next start, and I could see getting back in on Gausman for it.

Elvis Andrus – 3-for-4, 1 run, hitting .291.  I could’ve sworn he had been hot recently, so I looked at his month of June and he was batting .262.  Story of drafting and owning Andrus, you always think he’s better, but he rarely is.

Doug Fister – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.21.  Fister vs. the Angels is also the plot of the porn version of It’s A Wonderful Life, starring J-I-M-M-Y Stewart in It’s A Pornderful Life.

Carlos Correa – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 10th homer, and 2nd homer in the last four games.  When he gets to 25 homers, you’re gonna be like, “He was cold this season?  When?  I would’ve knitted him a sweater.”

Jose Altuve – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 11th homer, hitting .343, which reminds me of the Public Enemy song, Welcome to the Palindrome.

Luis Valbuena – 2-for-3, 1 RBI and hitting near-.370 in the last week with a couple of homers.  Get ’em while they’re hot schmotatoes.

Gregorio Petit – 1-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 2nd homer, a grand slam off Sipp, which is annoying.  That’s the last time anyone shares with Petit.  We said a Sipp!

Justin Upton – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and a double slam (7, 8) and legs (4), and four homers in the last four games.  You’re gonna blink and Upton’s gonna have 12 homers this month.  No, seriously, blink.  Okay, try it again.  Are you blinking or are you sleeping for a millisecond?

Ketel Marte – 4-for-6, 2 runs, 1 RBI as he bats ninth because Scott Servais likes the way Seth Smith (2-for-4, 2 RBIs) says his name.

Adam Lind – 3-for-6, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, and 2nd homer in his past three games.  In one league, I grabbed Lind yesterday, because he’s hot and I have idle hands like Seth Green in a movie of the same name.  Or like that website that sells ponies — ePonymous.

Taijuan Walker – Headed for an MRI on his flat feet.  Hopefully, his arches come back de triumphant.

Jhonny Peralta – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer.  That’s two homers in only 13 games.  Not quite as good as his teammate, Brandon Moss (1-for-3 and his 16th homer), who hits homers once every game, just about.  I said just about, there’s a lot of leeway with that hedge.  Fo’reals though, Moss has been a fungi to own.

Willson Contreras – 1-for-4, 1 RBI as he started for the first time.  We go over Contreras on the podcast that’s coming later today.  Or earlier today if you slept in.  Or yesterday if you were roofied.

Dexter Fowler – Hit the DL with hamstring discomfort.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he could’ve played through it, but the Cubs are in June playing for October.  When was the last time you read that?  On a 1913 weblog, written by Myles Standish Jr.  “Thou Cubs had a four-nay lead over the Newark Whitestockings when Giant-Eyed Youngman took a 67 MPH fastball off his knit-capped head.  Thou hopes he clears concussion tests, which is submerging him in water for five minutes and counting the bubbles that escape his ears.”

    Marvelous as in Marvelous Marvin Hagler! Quick 1-2 with an uppercut to the chin!

    a. Started MadBum yesterday and of course Erik with a ‘K’ gets the HR! I thought Locke would leak a little. It was a good start but am desperately seeking wins! If SAGNOF, then WAGNOF, HRAGNOF and definitely RAGNOF, right?

    b. Horatio Caine (aka CSI Miami) quote of the day (June 21)

    Tripp: I found a letterhead in our vic’s papers here. It’s from a creighton & howe,law firm next door. He was a partner there.
    Horatio: What did he specialize in, Frank?
    Tripp: Civil lit beat,class action,small-time stuff. His name’s sean radley. Think maybe a dissatisfied client?
    Horatio: There’s a lot of anger behind this, Frank.
    Tripp: That’s his car. He sure didn’t get very far.
    Horatio: They didn’t want him to escape.
    Tripp: Have to be pretty cold to pull this off.
    Horatio: Not pretty cold, Frank. (cue the queue of sunglasses) Cold-blooded.

    Upton was 2 for 5……hard to hit a double slam and legs going 1 for 4, as stated above.

    • Malicious Phenoms says:

      @Curt C: The 2nd slam, ie, his 2nd hit, was a walk off!

    • bossmanjunior333 says:

      @Curt C:

      He hit the homer so far it counted as 2.

      Seriously though, that first homer was to straight away center, over the 420 sign, over the tall bushes behind the wall. Straight up crushed.

    Hey Grey,

    Ive been streaming a pitcher spot, and had a long list of pitcher waivers that I do each week, and this week it got to the last player on that list.. Wilfredo Boscan. He’s playing the Giants tonight. I do plan on dropping him on wednesday waivers , but do you start him to try to get the win in a tough h2h matchup this week where wins are going to be essential?

    16 team dynasty, 6×6 with k/bb and OPS extra cats. use QS instead of W. picked up this team this year and started a rebuild. was expecting to finish near the bottom but i’m currently tied for 6th. my pitching is atrocious outside of harvey and smyly. this is my roster… c- Norris, 1b – kendrys, 2b – pearce, 3b-machado, ss- correa, of – Polanco, mazara, grossman, util – story, rajai, bn – scooter, mark Reynolds, Reddick. SPs- Harvey, smyly, fiers, taillon, tillman, junior Guerra, happ, straily, duffy, Hahn, RPs – rodney, neris, dyson, barraclough, madson, estevez. My notable prospects are alex reyes, aj reed, devers, dom smith, Brendan Rodgers, jeff Hoffman, carson fulmer, martes, trent clark, eddy julio, allard, touki. Been offered xander, salazar, and wainwright for my correa, taillon, and alex reyes. leaning towards pulling the trigger and trying to make the playoffs this year after all. what do you think? Thanks Grey! long live the razz!!

    monkey quote, so you probably already saw this, but
    “Pat Neshek was originally credited with his first save of the season after recording the final two outs, up three runs with nobody on base against the Marlins last night. However, later on, his save was rescinded. According to the save rule, in order to qualify for a save in that situation, Neshek would have had to pitch the entire inning. Baseball is weird.”

    i remember seeing that last night as well, and this would mean whoever ruled this game doesn’t understand the very rules he rules over, so doing something like this is kinda like an inverse job resume for that umpire (or whoever rules these things during the game)

    Grey, Jake Lamb has hit your prediction for HR and RBI and it’s June 21. To be fair, you said he had upside and your main worry was how the D-backs were going to use him. Well he is playing most every day and has been batting 2/3/4 against righties (occasionally sits/bats lower in the lineup against lefties) . What would you predict his line to be at the end of the year now?

    PS you were the one that told me to pick him up when Moustakas went down so thanks.

    The issue with Segura is his history… I keep waiting for a clean sign to figure out whether he’s wheat or chaff. I get the ambivalence.

    Frazier has been a pile of poo for the past couple of weeks… I think Abreu stole his mojo.
    Negatives: HR/FB nearly double career average, IF/FB up to 26%, LD% rate down to 21%, low ISO
    Positives: Babip at .183, walks are up (12% vs 8% career), #5 hitter
    Buy? Sell?

    Pujols is old. I highly doubt he’ll hit 30 HR this year. XBH% is trailing as you would expect. His GB/FB ratio is completely out of whack (1.03 vs 0.71 career). His Babip is low, but I wonder if it’s because of poor contact. I’m thinking he’s a sell. Thoughts?

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @bigbear: You should have sold Fraizer 4 weeks ago when his value was at its peak, now you’d be selling for peanut-shells. Good luck, I flipped him and Matz for Stanton, then i flipped Trumbo and VV for Cain.

    Is Rondon losing his job? I’m not chasing saves, but he barely has trade value in my league. Every manager in my 10 teamer is convinced the Cubs demote him and go for Chapman, Miller or Jansen. His numbers are amazing. Is it best to ride him until after the trade deadline?

    Thought my Siegrest scoop off the wire yesterday was about to pay off big after Rosenthal hit Coghlan. Then kid from the Cubs took off for 3B. Should have been a Passed Ball or WP. But the Ump/Yadi should both get credit for that Save. Not Rosenthal. And Cog should have been on 2B after that CS at 3rd, he would have scored on the Zobrist single that ensued.

    Siegrest was warming up and was veryyyy close to coming in to face Heyward for the last out. A lucky break on the location of where that Ump placed his knee/shin… or Rosenthal was losing his job last night. Grab Oh and Siegrest if you can. Smokey said yesterday he prefers Oh. But that was also before this stuff from last night played out.

      Crawford has power, Marte has speed, Marte can be expected to hit fora higher average going forward, but he won’t touch Crawford’s OBP, runs, and ribbies. But I’ll be damned before I pick up anyone with a .302 OBA paired with a huge BABIP. Couple that with Marte’s defensive issues, and you have some hype primed to bust. If you have Crawford, stand pat, give it a couple of weeks unless you really need the speed.

    ESPN 5X5, head to head, 6 man keeper. I am in first place in my league and my current outfield is Betts, Stanton, Cutch, Yellich, Mazara, Billy Hamilton (we start 5). Here are my queries;
    1. Given my current outfield build would you trade Baez, Profar and 1st round pick in next years draft for Spinger and Tanaka?
    2. Please rank the following ROS; Cutch, J-Up, Blackmon … I think I might be able to trade Cutch straight up for either Upton or Blackmon.
    3. Would you trade my Mazara for Archer?
    4. Given it’s a keeper league would you prefer Rizzo or Correa? I currently have Rizzo and Goldy (1b and Utility) and I have Story at SS. Correa would become my utility and insurance for Story.

    Hey Grey

    1. Scrapping the bottom of the barrel in my weekly 12 teamer for an OF5 that should stick around ROS, ideally for some counting stats and pretty good avg. Since it’s weekly, playing time seems like the most important factor.

    Looking at the following guys: Paulo Orlando, Michael Taylor, Jon Jay (ugh), Marwin Gonzalez, Howie Kendrick.

    2. Is Matt Adams droppable in weekly 12 team leagues, given his unpredictable playing time?

      It’s close, depends on needs

      • Fred Garvin MP says:

        @Grey: Cool. As it so happens, it would fill needs for both sides. I’m the one offering Ozuna due to my glut of productive outfielders. Fingers crossed.

    Cap’n,

    Someone in my keeper league dropped Velasquez when he hit the DL, so I scooped him up and stashed him on my DL. When he comes off it, I’ll need to drop one of the following: Urias, Eickhoff, PIneda, or alternatively Eugenio Suarez or AJ Reed. Who shoud I drop?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Suarez

      • Big Mike says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Wow. Thought you were going to say Eickhoff. Is Suarez done? I’ve got Baez in my MI slot, and just dropped Drury when the D-backs did.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          No reason to hold Suarez as a bench bat

    I have a 4.09 ERA in my keeper league with limited innings. So playing the match-ups I’ve done that bad.

      I’ve been struggling to get my ERA down in just about every league this year, Archer and Kluber have sure helped too

      • Dr. Kenneth Noisewater says:
        (link)

        @Grey: When Archer is one of only 2 pitchers I kept (and Sale), then draft Pineda and Chen for decent enough starting 4…you end up with a 4.09 ERA.

    I won my 14t yahoo 5×5 h2h league last year. ..and three rookie fa pickups helped me do so: Piscotty, Sano, and Franco. Piscotty is solid but quiet, kind of like Alex Gordon. But I finally gave up on Sano and Franco this year. …just killing me.

    By the way, I picked up Tommy Joseph per your recommendation. …he went 1-28 ?.

    I picked up Kendrys Morales cuz Freeman went nuts the very day I dropped him.

    I don’t know why I picked up Devon Travis over Schoop. Hopeful for steals? That and Travis will be at Coors next week.

    Even with a solid staff my WHIP is getting pummeled by of all people, AChapman and Rosenthal. Rodon sometimes sometimes, too.

    This is mostly a rant. ..gave up a lot for Franco and regret it.

    1) But would you take VV, when (if) back over any of these? Duffy, Paxton, JRoss, Rodon?

    And I get your problem with h2h. I’m in 7th.

    Lastly 2) I have Rosenthal, Chapman, Harris and Kintzler at closers. Would you ditch Kintzler for someone who can help my WHIP? Oh and Siegrest would be good and serve as handcuff for Wild Thing Rosey. But which? I think Matheny would go Siegrest first, but many pubs say Oh.

    Give me some cheese for my whine, as well. ..lol. Thanks for your entertaining write up. You still have Joseph on your team, right? ;)

      @Kyle: I asked this 2 weeks ago and the consensus was Mazara – I’d be interested to see what the answer is now… but my personal vote is Myers finally reaching his post (x10) hype potential this season

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Myers…Sure

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      @Kyle: Fernandez and Matz shouldn’t be sold for peanuts though… If you can get back a Carrasco or Cole, then yeah… but not for someone like Paxton, Shoemaker, etc.

      • Kyle says:
        (link)

        @William Hung: the guy offered me the deal, he’s a big Myers fan. Has Odor, Springer and Carrasco, and C. Martinez all who I like.

        What side would you be on:
        Myers, Fernandez, Matz or Carrasco, Mazara, Martinez?

        • William Hung says:
          (link)

          @Kyle: Carrasco and Martinez for Fernandez and Matz is fair given Fernandez will be limited and Matz will no doubt be shut down or limited towards the end of the season. If you can take the loss in steals, then I’d do it.

    Grey, 10 team keeper league (OBP, K/9) keep 7 players total (4 off/3 pitcher),

    We have 6 weeks left before our playoffs start. Currently is 2nd and our trade deadline in 7/20. The team in 3rd and 4th are getting hot, while I loss Pence and JD Mart to injury. I am in conversations with two teams that are raising the white flag for this season and looking for draft picks and players. I was hurting in Saves, so I dropped Betances for Allen this week. Other I am putting up nice stats, but not blowing anyone away in recent weeks.

    1.)How do you feel about Miguel Cabrera ROS and is offering up Mazara, Profar, Taillon and next year 2nd rd pick? Is that fair or do I need to offer something better?
    2.) Who has a better ROS CarGo or Braun? I know both are injury prone

    Hey Grey. Who would you rather have ROS – carrasco or Salazar? Guy in my league has both of these pitchers and is interested in my Mazara who is a candidate for my last keeper, with me being able to draft him in the 10th. Other guys competing for my final keeper spot is Polanco (6th round next year), Trea Turner (10th round), Wil Meyers (11th round).

    Time to dump Conforto? Been holding on to him as a bench guy in my 10 teamer because I can keep him in the 23rd round for next season only (1year keeper, and we only keep 3 guys). I’m a fringe playoff team right now so little margin for error. If I drop him he loses his keeper value., debating if it’s worth it. Guys I can grab include Rajai, Pillar, Fielder, Merrifield, Matt Adams, Bour. Appreciate the advice.

    Arenado/Roark for Altuve/Cueto.

    Which side?

        @Grey:

        I’m glad you said this but I’m a bit surprised.

        Thanks.

          No problem

        • William Hung says:
          (link)

          @Derrick: Cueto is a big upgrade over Roark and Altuve while loses some HRs / RBIs, will probably end up with more Rs and a lot more SBs – I would also bet on Altuve having a higher BA as well

    what do you think
    Iglesias is off the DL. talk of him becoming the closer eventually
    I have Seung Hwan Oh. and Rosenthal looks shaky,

    That mofo backed out of the deal and now wants Arrenado for Altuve straight up. I have Odor and 2B right now and would slide Frazier from utility to 3B.

    Points league, K=.5, 16-team, 3-5 keepers
    I’m in rebuild mode, if that’s helpful.
    Someone in my league just offered me Harper for Sale/Cano/Mazara, which is madness, but it’s got me thinking. He needs Mazara to fill RF, and Sale is most likely the linchpin here, but would Forsythe/Mazara/Sale push it back into the realm of reasonable?

    • Grey

      Sounds reasonable

      • theloganscorpion says:

        @Grey: He apparently doesn’t feel reasonable, but whatever, I have a Sale, Harper is unnecessary.

          @dem ribbies: Cutch’s BABIP is .038 lower than career. Hence, the struggles but optimism for improvement.

          Upton’s BABIP is higher than his career and he’s STILL struggling.

          I’ll admit these numbers guarantee nothing but they usually are good indicators.

    (link)

    I’ve been watching this Nola start. He hasn’t looked good at all, but his line should be like 3ER rather than 7 – Phills are pulling some Bad News Bears schiz.. Freddie Galvis looks like Mrs. Freatherbottom at SS – he’s had at least 3 errors, and ODB schlumped a catchable ball in CF that scored 3. That coupled with the ump calling a super tight strike zone = lots of drop Nola questions tomorrow.

    Just got offered Lorenzo Cain for Kluber. The rest of my pitching staff looks like this:

    Cueto, Stroman, Tillman, Teheran, Shoemaker, Roark, Urias
