True story:  I was walking through the mall in spandex shorts and a headband, strutting really.  The year was 1981.  I was perhaps the most handsome, well-groomed five-year-old the planet had seen.  Okay, a seven-year-old pretending to be a five-year-old.  Who wants to be older?  Not me, Cousin Sweatpants.  So, I’m cruising for chicks, crushing the scenario, when I see this total fox.  I stop her and ask for a name.  She says, “Jennifer Beals,” and I say, “You’re gonna be a star, kid,” then covering my mouth I say how her fame will be short-lived but how she will get some decent character work later in life.  I spotted her sex appeal two years prior to her breakout role in Flashdance.  I can always spot sex appeal.  It’s my cross to bear.  Speaking of crosses to bear, holy Jesus Harry Christ my Tout Wars team is sexy!  The league is 12-team, two-catcher, NL-Only and perhaps the most respected fantasy league in the country.  Sure, we’re still mocked by 99.9% of the world, but a solid chunk of other fantasy baseballers respect the Tout!  Anyway, here’s my Tout Wars team and some thoughts:

C Devin Mesoraco 3
C Austin Hedges 5
1B Paul Goldschmidt 40
3B Maikel Franco 22
CI Adam Lind 5
2B Trea Turner 30
SS Zack Cozart 5
MI Freddy Galvis 7
OF Giancarlo Stanton 28
OF Keon Broxton 19
OF Yasmany Tomas 14
OF Michael Conforto 10
UT Alen Hanson 1
SW Jhoulys Chacin 1
P Robbie Ray 13
P John Lackey 13
P Aaron Nola 10
P Jeff Samardzija 11
P Seth Lugo 2
P Felipe Rivero 1
P Cody Reed 2
P Neftali Feliz 9
P Jim Johnson 9
Bench Scooter Gennett
Bench Drew Hutchison
Bench Sal Romano
Bench Tommy Pham

YOU HAD ME SET UP FOR SOMETHING SUPER SEXY AND THEN YOU SHOVE DEVIN MESORACO IN MY FACE.  NOT COOL, PARDNER.  BUT, AFTER I SKIM THE HITTING, IT IS KINDA SEXY, I GUESS.  

12-team NL-Only is a deep AF league.  Everyone has holes — that’s what he said right before pleading guilty to sexual harassment!  One team has Dilson Herrera as their MI; another team has Conor Gillaspie as their 3rd baseman.  I just looked at two teams and was able to quickly find (like three seconds tops!) weaknesses on two teams.  No foolsies; everyone’s got issues.  My hitting is sexy as all get-out for this deep of a league.  Giancarlo, Trea, Goldy alone is likely all the hitting I need if they do what’s promised.  Seriously, I could have no MI, CI or 4th and 5th outfielder and be fine with those three on hitting.  Then throw in Keon Broxton, Maikel Franco and Yasmany and my team is like ‘PAH-DOW!”

YOU’RE AVOIDING MENTIONING YOUR PITCHING FOR A REASON, AREN’T YOU?

Sorry, all of those gerunds have me confused by your question.

TRY THIS:  YOUR PITCHING MAKES ME WANT TO VOMIT.

Ah, yeah, so it’s not all peaches n’ cream on Team Albright.  Fair enough.  My strategy was to get an offense I would be happy with, and don’t end a sentence with with — dah!  I’m sick of coming out of these crazy deep leagues with hitting that I hate.  You do enough of these leagues and you’ll understand what I mean.  (No, I’m not justifying having an awful pitching staff!  Okay, maybe a little.)  My goal was to get enough pitching that should throw a decent amount of innings without totally killing me.  Hey, Lackey, Robbie Ray, [email protected]&T*Gzija and Chacin might not be gorge, or make you engorged, but they should get their innings.  Somehow I still spent around my norm of $80 on pitching.  I know, I know, where did I spend that much?  Meh, if you want Au Shizz, Giancarlo and Treat Urner, you’re gonna be weak somewhere.

GIVE ME SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE I’M LEARNING SOMETHING.

I love Alen Hanson in crazy deep leagues.  He’s hitting well in spring, the Pirates have a bunch of guys that could go down with injury and he can fill in for all of them, he’s out of options, last year in Triple-A he had 8 HRs and 36 steals, and, no, I’m not lying knowing you won’t double-check me.  Alen Hanson in 12-team mixed leagues is slightly bizzonkers, but in a 12-team NL-Only league?  Yes, please and thank you.

WHEN YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE PUKE YOU’RE CALLING A PITCHING STAFF YOU FORGOT TO MENTION YOU OWN JIM JOHNSON.

Yup, and how about Cody Reed and Sal Romano?

ONE THING YOU CAN SAY ABOUT SAL ROMANO — HE REALLY THROWS CHEESE!

Ha, I’m glad we’re having a good time.

I’M HAVING A GOOD TIME BY MOCKING YOU, YOUR PITCHING SUCKS!

Okay, Mr. Al Boldencaps, perhaps I need to break down my thought process a bit more.  Out of $260 spent, according to my values, I came out with $286 worth of fantasy value.  That was better than I was doing in my mock trials I was doing the night before (totally not a dork).  Overall, I need my hitting to be so good that my pitching can be ‘just mediocre’ and get by.  Here’s my War Room totals:

You see the goals (33 for hitting, 14 for pitching), and you see where I am for each category.  I’m way off in Ks and Wins with my ratios and saves likely to be ‘decent enough.’  My hope is the 46 in HRs, 42.2 in SBs and 39.7 in RBIs pushes me so high the pitching won’t matter.  That’s the idea, at least.

BUT, REALLY, SAL ROMANO?

He’s gonna make America grate again!

I recently joined an 18-team Dynasty Auction and we had our draft last week. 8.5 hours later, I came out of the auction loving my offense, and hating my pitching (Jesse Chavez is a pitcher I’m relying on, it’s that bad). It is comforting to see someone I look up to for not only great mustaches, but also great fantasy content land in the same boat. Even though it won’t change the projections of my pitchers, it makes ya feel like you’re not alone. Then again, maybe I feel alone because I spent 8.5 fucking hours on a draft.

I actually do have a pertinent question for ya, FML: In that league, I was going for a stacked offense where I finish in the top 3 of the five main categories, then I decided to punt saves and simply go for volume stats (W and K) because there is no innings limit (but they are weekly lineups, so no streaming). Have you ever done this strategy and successfully won a league before?

Last two winners in 12 team, H2H league have been pitching dominant and small ball experts. So our league went pitching early and I admit to getting caught up in it (Kershaw at 18 was just too good to pass on). But I got caught badly on OFs as my high average, speedsters eluded me late. Damn mock drafts are always better than real ones! Do I sell Albert or VMart? , maybe a Quintana type for some OF bats? Other ideas? Not loving this team.

Ben – Owings ( could be sleeper so I can trade Russell?), Pillar (ugh)
Ben – V Mart (totally a value pick…maybe he or Albert goes since I am deep on CI ?)
SP – Kershaw, Verlander, Quintana, Gausman, Taillon, Nova

Drop Thames or Moncada to scoop up Delino in a 12 teamer 5×5 where i could use the speed?

Other option is drop Casilla who im hoping will back his way into some saves because i only have one actual closer at the moment.

I got $100 for groceries, $1400 for liquor, and $6,000 for you to go bail a couple of shit puppets out of jail

@ThE sHiT: 12 teamers should probably have better saves sources (even just spec ones) than casilla. unless you start like maybe 6 RP per team. even then it’s close.

@Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: the one argument for turner, being the counting stats by being on better team are close too. i’d guess you may have given franco a very optimistic (to you) projections is the answer? thus your level of your own projections is (to you) shakier in his case? or maybe it’s the PHI would be utter sinkhole for counting stats and thus his floor is worse.

So in a 12 team mixed h2h al/nl points league minus 1 for a K . The pitchers are favored slightly over the hitters……I have the 1st pick should I take Kershaw? the last 2 years 9 and 10 pitchers were taken total in the 1st 2 rounds. Hers how the 1st 2 rounds went last year to give you a idea.

Clayton Kershaw Paul Goldschmidt Mike Trout Bryce Harper Jake Arrieta Zack Greinke Josh Donaldson Max Scherzer Chris Sale Anthony Rizzo Edwin Encarnacion Carlos Correa Giancarlo Stanton *Madison Bumgarner Jose Bautista RF Jose Altuve Felix Hernandez Andrew McCutchen Buster Posey Dallas Keuchel Manny Machado David Price Nolan Arenado Miguel Cabrera and kris bryant 1st pick round 3……. Last year I had the 1st pick as well and my 1st 3 picks were Kershaw, Miggy and Kris Bryant

Based on how last year went who would you draft 1st pick in rd 1 and 24th and 25th for example . Being from Chicago and in a Chicago league obviously The Cubs and Sox get drafted a lil higher than most leagues probably….. Thanks for your help Grey !! Good luck this year.

I can keep 6 players in my league, 5×5 OBP P, 10-team league.
5 are confiremed : Rizzo , Machado , London , Springer , Blackmon
The last one keeper I got Arrieta or JD , and Grey suggested me JD before he gets injury.

I have two options now,
1. Keep Arrieta
2. Not to keep, and choose Carrasco or Archer or C-Mart in FA

SP who are in your top 10 are all kept by other teams.
So I can only draft SP who are ranked behind Arrieta.
Thoughts appreciated

Keeper question for you. Hitting categories are R,H,HR,RBI,SB,AVG,OBP,SLG

– Mazara (21st)

Who would you pick?

I know you can’t really put much stock into spring training stats, but David Peralta really seems primed for a bounce back season, as long as he stays healthy. I’m currently looking at Trumbo, Peterson, Broxton, Tomas, and Kepler for my OF/Util. Peralta is a FA. In an OPS league, how intrigued are you with his potential?

From rotoworld

DeShields has batted .302/.448/.321 with 12 steals this spring, which might have been enough to push Jurickson Profar back into a utility role and Carlos Gomez down in the order. “I tell guys, make me put you in the lineup,” manager Jeff Banister said. “Let your game put you in the lineup. Delino has made us do that. How it plays on Opening Day or the day after that … just continue to play the game.” DeShields entered 2016 as the Opening Day center fielder and leadoff man, but he lost those jobs quickly and ultimately hit .209/.275/.313. However, the 24-year-old had a good rookie season and could make a dent in fantasy leagues with his on-base skills and running ability.

Hi Grey,

12 Team Yahoo H2H 5X5 standard but OBP instead of AVG
Pick 9
I know I’m light on steals (I am intrigued by Jarod Dysob, would you drop anyone for him?)

C – Leon
1B – Rizzo
2B – Odor
3B – Seagar
SS – Diaz
OF – Springer
OF – Braun
OF – Bradley Jr.
UTIL – Rendon
UTIL – Mazara
B – Swanson

(I could not pass up Rendon in round 7/8)

SP – C. Martinez
SP – Maeda
SP – Salazar
SP – Roark
SP – V. Velazquez
SP – Eikoff
SP – J. Gray
SP – Kennedy
SP – Hammel
RP – Allen
RP – Robertson

I dig my team fro. Pick 9. I think besides steals which can be streamed, I am solid. I think the Swanson in round 14-16, whenever I drafted him is a low risk huge reward if he breaks out.

In our 12 team, H2H, 5X5 league we get to keep three players every season (after two keeps player goes back into the pool) and you lose whatever round you drafted that player.

So I am keeping:
C. Correa (lose a 22nd round pick)
R. Odor (lose a 5th round pick)
and I have the option to keep Darvish (lose a 13th round pick) or Gary Sanchez (lose a 24th round pick).

Who would you keep between Darvish and Sanchez?

Thanks!

Hey Grey,

I’ve been to your site quite a few times, but only really got hooked before my draft this year. You guys have some really great content on here. However, I’m even more impressed with the community and effort you put into your comment section.

This year to prep for my draft I read a ton of stuff. I was pretty knowledgable about baseball to begin with (played fantasy for a while now and consider myself pretty decent), but I had never done this much research before a draft – possibly due to the large jump in my league’s pot. I gave essentially ever major site a look, and found Razzball, specifically your writing, to be the most interesting/unique/valuable.

Now that I’m done praising I’ll get to a question of mine. Are you willing to give thoughts about my specific team? I realize it may not be a valuable use of your time, but I’m curious for your thoughts in particular. I drafted while actively following your logic…and somehow ended up doing a bunch of things you hate (which it seems you end up doing at times as well). Let me know if you’d like me to lay out my roster, and I’ll quickly outline why/how I ended up with such a team.

Daniel

Reply to  Grey

@Grey:

First some very necessary information:
Competitive 10 team league, 1 keeper at the cost of the previous year; auction draft with $1000 for each team (I LOVE the huge allotment – downside is the draft is even longer than an average auction draft); No limit on RPs or SPs – there are simply 9 spots for any type of Pitcher; 5×5 categories with OBP instead of AVG – didn’t realize how important that replacement was until our 3rd year of doing it (makes guys with 280 BAs and 380 OBPs a lot more attractive).

Here’s my squad. I went SUPER hitting heavy at the beginning of the draft, per your request.
C Buster Posey, SF C
1B Paul Goldschmidt, Ari 1B
2B Brian Dozier, Min 2B
3B Alex Bregman, Hou 3B
SS Carlos Correa, Hou SS
2B/SS Dustin Pedroia, Bos 2B
1B/3B Josh Bell, Pit 1B
OF Christian Yelich, Mia OF
OF Nelson Cruz, Sea OF
OF Adam Eaton, Wsh OF
OF Andrew Benintendi, Bos OF
OF Odubel Herrera, Phi OF
UTIL Dansby Swanson, Atl SS
Bench Rajai Davis, Oak OF
Bench Max Keper, Min OF
P Jose Quintana, CWS SP
P Marcus Stroman, Tor SP
P Aaron Sanchez, Tor SP
P Andrew Miller, Cle RP
P Michael Fulmer, Det SP
P J.A. Happ, Tor SP
P Neftali Feliz, Mil RP
P James Paxton, Sea SP
P Aaron Nola, Phi SP
Bench Brandon Maurer, SD RP
Bench Koda Glover, Wsh RP

Weird points that I’d like to outline:
I went in with every intention of going with a ridiculously cheap catcher. EVERY intention. Then Posey came up…and the bidding was slow so I ran him up a bit..then I decided I would bid on him like he were any normal player. Any normal guy with a .360 OBP/15 HR/ 80R/80RBI…and I ended up winning him for $49 (keep in mind our draft money is scaled up roughly 4 times traditional draft values).

That was the story of the draft for me. I kept getting guys I never would have imagined getting (hitters at least – my pitchers were guys I could see coming). I somehow landed Dustin Pedroia for $15 …why not, right? His value takes a hike in an OBP league and I think his counting stats will be pretty nice in that lineup. Same with Yelich. Same with

At the end of the draft there are always these 2 guys that save their money and gobble up mid-range sleepers. These two guys waited longer than usual to start spending and shit got weird. A bunch of low dollar sleepers I wanted went for RIDICULOUS prices. Usually the impact on me was missing out on players I wanted, but there were a couple cases I got extorted on a guy I was targeting.

Closers were all going for insane prices. I love closers, but I always end with a good saves team and I never draft one – following closer roles is easy.

Can’t wait to see how badly you rip me up for taking a catcher relatively “early”, Yelich, Dozier, and all my other disobedience. I’m strangely okay with how this team turned out.

Let me know your thoughts!

Schoop probably would’ve been a solid pickup looking back on it. His disgusting walk rate really turned me off in an OBP league, and someone nominated him early on so it wasn’t clear what my weaknesses would be.

Fair point about the $49. My current plan is to be very open to trades for him – I’d gladly downgrade to Susac (when he’s healthy) for a big bat, which may be very possible from someone panicking about a catcher spot.

I know the speed isn’t great, but isn’t it relatively solid? Eaton, Herrera, Rajai, Dozier, Goldy, Correa will all knock out a nice chunk for me. I was hoping to avoid eating a Billy Hamilton or Dee Gordon because they went for a ridiculous amount.

If you had to trade a hitter for more power/rbi who would you trade?

I’m a Tigers fan so I willingly overpaid for a Fulmer who is likely to regress – I’m okay with that. I didn’t even want Happ or Sanchez at all but here I am with 3/5ths of the Toronto rotation.

Thanks for the feedback Grey

12-team 6×6 Roto league (OPS, QS), drafted Sunday:

C – Vogt
1b – Pujols
2b – Villar
3b – Arenado
SS – Seager
CI – Bird
MI – D. Travis
OF – Marte
OF – JBJ
OF – Buxton
OF – Kepler

BN – Moreland

SP – Cueto

P – R. Ray
P – Hammel
P – Kintzler
BN – J. Gomez
BN – A. Reed
BN – Morton
BN – A. Wood
BN – Ryu
BN – McHugh
BN – Montgomery

So, I got caught price-enforcing on Carrasco, but even so I spent around 26% on pitching, so not horrible.

Right off the bat, I have someone inquiring about Duffy. I’m thinking I need some AVG help. Benintendi, maybe?

Joined a 10 team dynasty roto league this year (17 keepers out of 30 players)

On a weekly basis, we start C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, 3OF, and U + 4SP, 2 RP, and 1 SP/RP

It’s a snake draft and I have the 10 pick. Only ever done auction drafts before.

In a nutshell, what would your strategy tips be for snake drafting in an incredibly shallow dynasty league like this?

Hey Grey, I saw that you moved JD Martinez down into your top 40 OFs with new projections, but the new numbers aren’t reflected in your top-500. Does that mean the top-500 isn’t being updated when you’re making updates? Just checking because I plan on using the downloadable war room tool this weekend, but I want to make sure your latest projections are included.

I’m not worried about the big guns, but for some of the smaller happenings at camps during the balance of the week, I definitely won’t catch them so wondering how late to lock in the projection data since I have a bunch of other updates to make to my working spreadsheet. And spreadsheets hate me.

12 team, 5×5 redraft. Both Marcel Ozuna and Tommy Joseph were cut loose. I’d like to grab one to upgrade Jay Bruce. Leaning Ozuna right now, since I have similar players in Bird and (to a lesser degree) Healy, but I’m really liking Joseph’s 30-HR power potential. Which of these two makes more sense? If Joseph will hit, I could even deal Rizzo for a top arm, and slot him at first. I have plenty of speed, just need to balance it with some power.

@Grey: You mean nothing negative about the team except the owner.

The other thing I’m seeing, at least from multiple CBS drafts, is a total dead spot in ADP in round 6-7. Anyone I wanted would have been a reach. Hence the rush pick/almost auto-pick of Jansen in the 6th. Came back with Rendon and JBJ in 7th and 8th. And no one I really wanted in between.

@Grey: self-depreciating humor was never my strong suit.

Yes! Precisely. Right after I take my SP1. With the dead spot I must fight the urge to take SP2 very next round (Hamels in this case) because there is no other targets even close. So instead I took a closer (speaking of self-depricaring)

Grey,
I’m in a 12 team standard 5×5 Head to Head keeper league that starts one C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, Utility, and three outfielders. My keepers are Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt, Anthony Rizzo, Starling Marte, Francisco Lindor, and Gregory Polanco. I have the second pick in the first round of the draft. Available players include Jonathan Villar, Mark Trumbo, Wil Myers, Christian Yelich, and Jackie Bradley Jr, Jacob deGrom, Danny Duffy, Kenta Maeda, Gerrit Cole, and Kyle Hendricks. I am tempted to take either Villar or Myers with my first pick but am concerned Rich Hill will be the best pitcher on the board by the time I pick again. Would you take Duffy with my first pick or one of the available hitters?
