My years of sitting in French cafes, smoking really long cigarettes and wearing a beret, while sneering at children and puppies, has taken its toll.  I’m no longer the innocent fantasy baseballer who picks up just any potential rookie call-up.  I have more discerning tastes now.  When I was a mere jejune tot, I’d sip a combination of ale and grenadine my bartendress called a Monaco and talk about Super 2’s and so-and-so was going to be the next Ryan Braun-like call-up.  I’m no longer a tot; now, I’m a full potato, and I drink gin with extra juniper berries.  Crunching on juniper berries, coughing from a tumor, watching cyclists in spandex shorts, carrying baguettes.  The days bleed together.  I take out my daily planner and pencil, lick the pencil, turn the calendar day to make a note to, “Buy more Virginia Slim 120s,” when I read a note to myself, “It’s almost June, start picking up rookie call-ups, you dipshit!”  Ah, yes, Daily Planner Grey has a point.  Today, I decided to highlight Trea Turner.  At this point, he feels like the number one call-up.  A.J. Reed, Jameson Taillon, Tyler Glasnow, Orlando Arcia might make bigger impacts, but the Nats consider themselves a playoff team and they’re in a heated division battle right now.  I doubt they let Dusty simply ignore Turner because Espinosa is older.  Older really isn’t a reason to play someone.  An exec has to relay that to Dusty at some point.  Turner looks like he could be a Francisco Lindor-type from last year — 7-10 HRs, 15-18 steals, solid average.  Basically, a top ten shortstop from the time he’s called up.  I would stash him now–*coughs*  Sorry, I accidentally bought Virginia Slim 140s.  The extra 20 is killing me.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Devon Travis – Should return any day now, Annie Potts.  Will he be thrust back in the leadoff slot?  Yeah, I think that will happen.  Why do I feel there’s a but coming?  Very perceptive, Random Italicized Voice.  Well, I am just you in italics.  Travis had shoulder surgery, and I’m concerned the road to recovery hasn’t ended when he returns.  I could be wrong — “You? Never!”  Not now, Delino DeShields drafter. — and I would own Travis, but I’d try to be realistic.

Jurickson Profar – Honestly, seriously, awkward start to the sentencely, I wouldn’t pick up Profar in anything but AL-Only leagues.  It’s promising that he’s started to play 2nd base to fill-in for Odor when he goes into detention in Joe Torre’s office, but how long will Odor be out?  Not long enough to even waft out an odor in your bathroom.

Tony Kemp – $5 says Matt Kemp and Nyjer Morgan had a baby and it’s Tony Kemp.  Well, there goes $5 because Google tells me I’m wrong.  Google sure is a no-it-all.  Google tells me it’s know-it-all too.  Screw you, Google!  Kemp has 25-steal speed, but he’s an AL-Only platoon player as of now.

Derek Dietrich – Batting leadoff, but doesn’t have great power or speed, and I’ve already talked myself out of him.  He’s a runs play, which is only slightly more exciting than Montezuma’s Revenge runs play.

Jonathan Schoop – You might want to put on your aluminum foil hat for this to avoid having your mind blown, but Schoop is going to end the year with 25 HRs, .260 average and you’re gonna be like, “Why didn’t I just own him all year?”

Yan Gomes – Yan can hit!  And so can you!  Though, I’m not picking you up.  No offense.  Literally.

Evan Gattis – This is a little bit about him getting catcher eligibility, but also about short-term value with what Hitter-Tron is seeing.  Well, seeing besides the sticky pages of its Popular Mechanics magazine.

Steve Pearce – One part hot schmotato, one part “Is he even hot anymore?”  One part “Yes, he is hot,” one part “You didn’t even check to see if he’s still hot, did you?”  One part “Shut up,” one part “These aren’t even parts anymore, these are asides.”

A.J. Reed – Here’s what I said the other day, “I think (Tony) Kemp, (Colin) Moran and Tyler White as like those bags of sand in the Indiana Jones movie that he moves into place to avoid triggering the alarm.  One of these days, the Astros will just miss getting a bag of sand in place and A.J. Reed will emerge.”  And that’s me quoting me!

C.J. Cron – I keep waiting for him to get hot and I’m still waiting, but I do trust him to come around at some point.  I guess with Curtis Jackson Cron I’m patiently waiting.

Justin Smoak – Where’s there’s Smoak, there’s everyone else at the corner slot on waivers being lousy!  Hmm, not that catchy.

Tommy Joseph – He has power and should be on the strong side of the Phillies’ first baseman platoon, but will likely be on the weak side of it to start.  Who knows, maybe every Phillie fans’ dream of Howard suddenly retiring will come true.

Jake Lamb – Why is it taking everyone so long to grab Lamb?  He’s gamey for anything!

Colin Moran – Some have speculated that the Astros called up Moran because George Bush Sr. was overheard screaming “We need Moran!” but he was actually just asking Barbara to call for one of his sons.   Not much here outside of AL-Only leagues, and in AL (or NL) leagues, anyone getting at-bats is worthwhile.

Tyler Goeddel – Likely an NL-Only play, but he did have 12 HRs, 28 SBs and a .279 average in Double-A last year.  He could be overmatched being in the majors, but he has to stay there or the Phils will lose him to another team.  It’s a Rule 5 dealio.  Between Rule 5’s and Super Two’s, you need a solar calculator and a clear day to make sense of all of this.

Jonathan Villar – So, he’s cooled off a bit.  I mean, in the last three games, he only has two steals.  That’s what?  A 140 steal pace?  P to the fft!

Jose Reyes – “My only regret was too young for Gary Gaetti.  My only regret was too young for Eric Davis.  Now all I’m left with is memories of L.J. Hoes on the Astros…”  Sorry, was just singing J. Cole.  Um, Reyes, yeah, he’ll likely be traded within the next two weeks or a bench player for the Rockies.  I could see stashing him expecting him to end up on the Angels or somewhere where (stutterer!) he’ll play.

Khris Davis – You, “Fantasy Master Lothario, your mustache drives me crazy in my nethers, but why don’t you list Danny Valencia in your Buys?”  Valencia is over 50% owned, which is the arbitrary cutoff for these posts like your nadbag is your arbitrary cutoff for your jorts.  So, here’s Davis, who was below 50% as of this writing, but he could be over that mark too by now.  So, take this blurb to mean I’d own Valencia and Davis if they’re available in your league.  Also, I just gave you my Khris Davis fantasy and Danny Valencia fantasy.  Both were written with the express written consent of Major League Baaseball, which is a fraudulent operation that poses as MLB.

Rajai Davis – I just went over The King of SAGNOF this morning.  Use your scrolly finger and have at it.

Adam Duvall – I just gave you my Adam Duvall fantasy.  It was written on the liner notes for the new Chance the Rapper album.

Cameron Maybin – To produce when healthy?  That’s so Maybin!  To not stay healthy long?  That’s so Maybin!  Should be on The View?  Cameron Maybin-Symone!

Sam Dyson – I just gave you my Sam Dyson fantasy.  I sure have written up a lot of these players.  All work, no play makes Grey a–Sorry, don’t have time to finish that sentence, have more work to do.

Will Harris – I don’t believe the Astros will have as much faith in Gregerson as they’ve showed up until this point.  Of course, if Gregerson strings together a few saves, then we’re back to square one and he’d need to blow another three to four games in a row to be in real danger.  Ken Giles is also in consideration for saves, even if he is behind Harris in the pen, because Giles was the closer for three months before games began.

Jumbo Diaz – If picking up prospective closers is like picking up women, the Reds relievers will never get a save because they will smell your desperation.

Brad Boxberger – Kevin Cash has said Boxberger will take over the closer job when he returns, and Cash rules everything around the Rays.

Joaquin Benoit – There’s a bunch of speculative SAGNOF grabs this week, and next week there may be none, so act fast, Cousin Sweatpants.

Jameson Taillon – My guess is he’ll be up first between Glasnow and him.  My guess is best delivered with a smile and an extra helping of dimples.

Jerad Eickhoff – There’s more Stream-o-Nator calls for the next few days than I’ve seen in a while.  That will likely be the case moving forward too because as we get further into the season, the SON shines on more guys as sample sizes grow — that’s what she might’ve said but probably not in this context!

Alex Wood – Could be worth owning beyond his next start, but even if he’s not, Stream-o-Nator likes Wood.  SON, “What?  I”m exploring my sexuality.”

SELL

Ian Kinsler – Guilty as charged, I used the Buysellatops, our Fantasy Baseball Buy/Sell Tool, for this Sell.  The Buysellatops is the last remaining dinosaur, unless you count Zsa Zsa Gabor.  Fun fact!  Zsa Zsa used to sign her name like Zorro but instead of slashing the initial with a sword, she used Conrad Hilton’s toe dipped in ink.  So, Kinsler, or as he’s known to all the Jewish boys and five girls, Kid Dish, has been insanely hot.  He has 10 homers, and only had 11 last year, and only 17 the year before and 13 the year before–You get the drift.  He’s playing slightly above his head with power.  He is hitting more fly balls, but his HR/FB is above any previous year, and unsustainable.  He could hit ten homers the rest of the year, so in two months, you got 50% of his power.  I wouldn’t sell him for a ticket to see Hamilton (George Hamilton, not the Broadway show), but I would explore options.

    Had mentioned it this morning, but if you haven’t given the new Aesop a try, I’d recommend it.

        @Grey: Labor days and apple seed are two of my favorites. I think his Bazookatooth was a low point. He’s lyrically impressive.

        @Grey: Legendary if you’re anything like me, a sucker for thought provoking, clever rhymes. Just a couple of my favs off the top of my head…

        6B Panorama
        Babies with Guns
        None Shall Pass (one of the more known songs so could be a good place to start)
        Lotta Years (from the new album)
        Dorks (from the new album)

            @Grey:

            I’ve always been partial to Labor Days but Impossible Kid may be my new favorite. Highlights for me so far are Get out the Car, Kirby; Rings, Dorks and the third verse on Moleculesnis unreal

            Check the last Hail Mary Malloon – Bestiary. Great album!

                @Grey: My two cents you’ll like Bazooka tooth. The production value is significantly better than labor days and float. Lyrically he’s always sick. Funny anecdote he was at BU the same time as you too.

          @knucks: Daylight (killer Beastie Boys sample), Lucy, Labor Days, NY electric, Mars Attacks, water, happy pills w/ Murs, 11:35 w/ Lif, the greatest pac-man victory in history, Lamplighters w/ Camp Lo, No jumper cables.

          Bazooka tooth has El-P’s finger prints all over it. As a huge El-P fan, I appreciate the general NY feel of that album. It’s one of Def Jux’s definitive releases

      @knucks:
      I offered my Kinsler for Mookie about 3 weeks ago. Glad dude turned me down then, but I’ve been thinking bout resending it to sell high. What you think?

        Betts is a top 10 hitter, Kinsler isn’t a top 40 one

    • William Hung says:

      As a follow up – I’d say Joe Smith who is at 49% owned in Yahoo! is a better buy since Huston Street is always a DL candidate

    Hey Grey, i can pick up 1 SP a week, i have Syndergaard, Zimmerman, Samardzija, Nola, and Smyly with Velasquez in a relief spot. I also have Darvish on my DL. should i drop Zimmerman and spot start Iwakuma or Kazmir today? I thought then i could pick up a reliever( saves or holds) slide Valasquez in as a starter until Darvish comes up?

    Hey Grey,

    Great write up as usual! Just wanted to thank you for giving my boy Kinsler a “sell” rating. A lot of guys in my league read your posts and forget you have a categories based focus. I have had Kinsler for the past few years and while I totally understand your logic about his power numbers, he is very useful in h2h points leagues. He finished as the 2nd most valuable 2bagger last year in my league and should be top4 this year as well.

    Question about H2h points leagues. Duvall or Schoop ROS?

    Great Buy column. Have been riding some of them – Gomes, Rajai (the only player to hit for me yesterday, thank you for enabling my team batting average to get .114), Pearce, Duvall, Taillon and now Goedel!

    a. Are you starting C-Mart tonight versus AZ at home (Corbin)?

    b. Start 3 of the following 5 in a 12-team RCL for tonight.

    1. Goedel at home versus Atl (Wisler)
    2. Duvall at home versus Sea (‘Kuma)
    3. Rajai Davis @ BOS versus Buchholz
    4. Span at home versus CHC (Arrieta)

        @Grey: Grey!

        Thanks for the help / insight.

        True story! I pass by the container of a colleague named Laurent who is on mission from Budapest. He’s 100000% French, smokes cigarettes and hails from Lyon. Anyway, I pass by the door to his container because I smell something familiar. And I’ve got it! It’s pastiche, the stuff French people drink – just add water and Frank Voila! Of course, curious to confirm, I knock on his door and ask him and he says ‘But, of course! I am French, non? Zut, alors!’ I guessed correctly and he was positively impressed.

        Cheers,
        Ante

            @Grey: Grey!

            Ha! No, he’s gone now. It was a 3-day mission to our office for an audit on our logistics methodology. I spent a glorious 10 days in August of 1999 in my friend’s 1-bedroom in the 18th arrondissements (steps away from the metro station Porte de Clignacourt). I had to share the 1-bedroom with his girlfriend at the time because he was away on mission. There was no hanky-panky and she was really kind to share her precious time with me to show me around. She was a teacher at the time. My friend has since split up with this girl friend.

            Did all the classic stuff.

            a. visit the Louvre museum on the last Sunday of the month for free (huge queue);
            b. Pere LaChaise cemetery to visit Jim Morrison’s grave;
            c. go to the Latin quarter;
            d. see notre dame and sacre coeur;
            e. go to pigalle and montmartre;

            We did other stuff, got to love Paris.

    OBP league. I traded Colome and Carlos Santana for Kinsler.

    Colome has had a ton of value as he’s SP eligible and we have 5 SP 3RP spots. So being able to have 4 closers is huge.

    This was before the Boxberger getting the job back news. I still did pretty good landing Kinsler right?

    I don’t love Turner. Scouted him a bunch this off season. Watched prolly more than half his PAs from last year. Skinny kid. Over matched. He’s got an unsustainable BABIP at AAA inflating his avg and his counters. Looks to me like one to two years away. He’s 22 years old and listed at 6’1″ and listed at 175. I think the numbers on the farm right now smell a little bit like quad A to me. Going to see some tough arms in that division. To me minor league SBs seem to have a very poor correlation to MLB overall success. So many Hamilton Peraza types who can’t hit. I think he’ll be a bit better than that as the BB rate and overall approach seem more advanced. But I would be much more tempered in a projection than you are above. But then, I’ve been known to be wrong.

    • Grey

    Hey guys,

    Matt Carpenter and Adrian Beltre just got dropped in my 12 team H2H league this morning. No idea why, but I’m interesting in adding them both as I have Kipnis at 2b and Mikael Franco at 3B and I feel that both players are upgrades over what I already have. Obviously I want to pick them up but my biggest concern is how much should I bid on each player? I have $247 remaining of my initial $250 budget. As it stands I have a $40 bid for Carpenter and $35 for Beltre. Should I keep this bids or bump them up higher?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Grey!

    10 team H2H…Have too many bench bats, looking to acquire Archer as I shed some depth.

    The owner has gradually upped his request to land on J-Hey and Joc. Sound about right? My Cubs bias is blinding me, worried I am giving too much. Almost had him straight up for Pujols. Much sadness.

    Have Pujols and Ellsbury floating in and out of the lineup…but mostly been using Ozuna to fill OF3, so this would make my OF JUp-Cain-Ozuna, Ells off the bench for speed. Too much faith in Ozuna?

    Thanks in advance homie!

    Is it time to worry about Dozier? A quick peak at fangraphs suggests that his walks and K’s look okay, but it appears he’s making much less hard contact which obviously isn’t great for his power. I have Schoop plugged in for now, but how much longer do I wait before filling Dozier’s roster spot with something a little more useful?

    1.
    “Dirty” (pee) Dee Gordon dropped in my 15 team league. By my calculations he’s back on July 28th.

    Do I pick him up and hold for two months when I have 7 bench spots in my NFBC league or should I wait and let some other chump hold him for a month in hopes he gets dropped again?

    2.
    I have been holding Ed Rod but he just had a setback and was shut down. Cut the ties eh?

    Happy Friday Grey!

    Lost the “Chronicles of Reddick” last night. There’s a lot of players out on the waivers that I can play around with, so not worried about replacing his numbers. (In annoying Stephen A. Adams voice) HOWEVA! I got a situation with my two DL slots. Currently I have Carrasco and Eduardo Rodriguez sitting there. The Red Sox seem to slow-rolling Rodriguez along in his rehab which begs the question…

    Do I cut Reddick in my H2H 6×6 league and pick up a replacement and not worry about getting him back until his time table is updated? Or, do I swap Reddick onto my DL, activate Rodriguez and then cut him (I don’t know you’re take on Rodriguez for the ROS). Or (x2), hold onto both and hopefully ride it out until Carrasco gets activated in 10 days, then make the swap? Oh no, I’ve gone cross-eyed.

    P.S. Not a big fan of AESOP. Save some time and just go pop in a album of Hieroglyphics or Deltron 3000. They were the originals AESOP was trying to sound like.

    What is the proper attitude to take towards a human being who spells his name “Dan” but pronounces it “Don?” I have just met such a person. Mentally I now call him “Dandon.” It seems as if there needs to be something on the scale between ridicule and capital punishment.

    in that same AL only mentioned earlier today unless choo is actually out rua is screwed. guessing holt isn’t out long enough to grab swihart (yahoo, so 5 starts against righties he’d have OF). my other idea is to turn my worst SP that i was already gonna stream into a most days stream hitter slot. with all of stubbs, reimold (today), jennings, krispie, smolinski i have a lot of guys fairly useful to pick from for my 4th starting slot. if swihart also gets OF i could sub him in for casali (now out 2 days in a row even though conger can’t catch or hit). but it might not be worth a move if swihart just goes back to minors when holt is back either.

    • For an Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron says:
      (link)

      @For an Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron: those guys not “fairly useful” as stand alone, only streaming them when they start against lefties, esp krispie.

      • For an Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron says:
        (link)

        @For an Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron: looked at it for yahoo, and swihart should have his 5th LF start on wednesday, and miss 2 games from now till next friday (lefties, krispie days), so he’ll have OF in yahoo only one day before holt can come back. it’s mostly about whether or not he even stays up after holt comes back, really.

          @For an Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron: this was AL only where my OF is now:
          hanram/springer/guyer and lefty side streamer (had wanted to grab rua, but if choo back he’s at best one of these), so if holt was out longer than this swihart as LF against righties would be good add, could play C for one of casali’s far too many off days.

            @For an Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron: now for some reason i’m seeing conger is starting catcher at depthcharts too, which is really funny as i remember you guys talking about how conger looked like the worst defensive catcher in the league (or close), and clearly casali is hitting better than him.

    There is a trade on the table that gives me Kris Bryant and Eickhoff for Pujols and Samardjiza. Because Bryant is a 3B and I can only roster 3 of them, I would need to drop Castellanos or Beltre to make this deal and get Bryant.

    The other deal on the table is Kris Bryant, Bradley and Eickhoff for Pujols, Beltre and Samardjiza.

    1) Should I do the first deal? If yes,do I drop Beltre or Castellanos?
    2) Is the second deal a better option for me than the first deal?

      @Rondo: in the exact same number of at bats so far beltre is 6 pts behind bryant in a pts league, and the league i’m referencing even has +2 for steals (of course bryant could get more of those later). if you buy bradley is that much better than pujols that’s good though, but it better be a lot more than pujols since shark is 9th SP in at least my espn pts league, and eickhoff is 91st SP.

    But let me just present to you some of the offers I’ve gotten from one manager after I instantly rejected them one after the other:

    (FYI this a keeper forever league)

    #1: King Felix ($35) and Brett Gardner ($13) for my Bryce Harper ($41) and Jason Hammel ($1)
    #2: David Price ($33) for my Kris Bryant ($13)
    #3: David Price ($33) and K. Maeda ($12) for my Jake Arrieta ($13)
    I counter with a Conforto ($2) for his S. Matz ($9)
    he comes back with Brett Gardner ($13) and Steven Matz ($9) for Bryce Harper ($41) and Hammel ($1). He also includes in the trade offer an accompanying note: “I think highly of Matz and Salary is cheap.”

    I mean, seriously? Am I overreacting here?
    The frustrating thing is the whole league is like this. Just everyone in this damn league is looking to only bend you over and ram you with a pineapple, no lube.
    I complained to my friend who’s in the league and he tells me that these trade offers are fair and a case of quantity vs quality. He then precedes to offer me Jon Lester ($21) and Puig ($14) for my Mookie Betts ($8). UGH.

      @muskysmell: find a better league or just pound them in the playoffs because you read razzball and they dont. Alot of ppl dont know how to prperly evaluate trades so just turn it around on them by buying their under preforming studs for 2 hot schmos. Do you own JBJ? Try trading him while hes on fire if you do etc. You get the picture

      • muskysmell says:
        (link)

        @Bye Felica:
        No these guys will never give a discount on even their under performing studs. They’d rather go down with their ship than to give any bit of discount.

        I have no problem doing well in the league…I’m consistently in the top 3 virtually every year. Just ranting because honestly trading is just plain fun and one of the best parts of fantasy. But there are barely ever trades in our league because people are only interested in deals that only benefit themselves and not fair ones. Not fun. Luckily, making money in a money league trumps all.

      I get trade offers all the time I think are lame… I sent a trade offer the other day for Carrasco with my Frazier, which I thought was more than fair, they came back with my Corey Seager for their C-Mart

    • Crapshoot Kershaw says:
      (link)

      @muskysmell: yeah, all the time, but if you want to not get them again at least the first time explain why you think that about the offer in question without being a massive dick (it’s hard, as the guy just tried to give you a $10 for a $20 in some cases), often this curbs the 2nd really insulting deal. if bad deals continue, deny them right away, if they still continue don’t even deny them, leave them sit.

    Did Jason Castro and Yaas Grandal pull a freaky Friday? Castro’s walk rate is almost 18% (.364 obp despite .220 avg) whereas Yaas is only at around a .300 obp on the season.

    In an OBP league where you’re going to be having Gattis eventually at C, would you drop Yas for Castro?

    Trying to fix my pitching. Right now I have a small staff of Price, Hamels, Liriano and Ross. Then I cycle through streamers 3-4 times per week. Have not had much luck with my streamers however (eg, Kazmir last night) and wondering if I would be better off picking up someone like Rodon or Stroman (both are available) and just go with my top 5-6 guys every turn out. Thanks!

    hi grey!

    kendrys is boring the shit outta me

    now got gattis as DH waiting to get C eligibility (CBS – 5). I am ready to drop Kendrys for pretty much any hot bat on the wire once Gattis goes to C. (12 team mixed roto). Agree? Ideally Reed comes up around then. or hold on to Kendrys for now in U?

      Agreed

    Trade Castro and Jensen for Rodon and Realmutto?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I don’t know who these players are

  129. I’m a little confused, a couple points of clarity needed:
    1. Are the cyclists in spandex shorts carrying baguettes?
    2. Is that a euphemism?

    Alas, your soon-to-be-star SS was drafted and I couldn’t pry him away a month ago. Same with Arnithal James Reed.

    Had to settle for the Pirates soon-to-be-uh-ace? I’m not usually that wishy washy in my hyphenated phrases, but I know next to nothing about this kid other than he’s been money in the minors and he’ll play in a decent park on a very good pirates team. Arrh, it’s driving me nuts! (Favorite pirate joke reference)

    Also I agree about Travis – I was driving the bandwagon last season, and love the kid but shoulder injuries sap power. He’s likely to be more of a 2-cat guy (3 in OBP leagues) – there are always exceptions, but like ACLs, shoulders are usually a “2nd year back” kinda recovery. I like the kid though and will invest next year if he looks good.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. No 2. Yes…

      Totally on Travis, will be a nice bounce back next year assuming he gets through this year healthy

  130. Wywyz says:
    (link)

    Also trade Dozier for Justin Upton?

    • Will says:
      (link)

      @Wywyz: I tried that, but Upton’s owner wasn’t interested. I would take Upton (but I also have 3 other 2B options)

  132. Jmoney says:
    (link)

    I’ve made a number of trades recently, most of which I believe were good ones, but I am still worried about my team, currently in 8th out of 10 in my 6×6 keeper league OBP + SLG, QS + IP

    Due to starting guys like Berrios, Jon Gray, Sonny Gray, Liriano, and Rodon, my ERA has ballooned to 3.9 and my WHIP, 1.28. Here’s my squad, I am in the bottom 4 of all batting categories. Let me know what you might recommend.

    C: Wilson Ramos
    1B: Votto
    2B: Rendon
    3B: Frazier
    SS: Tulo
    2B/SS: Schoop
    1B/3B: Castellanos
    OF: CarGonzalez
    OF: Yelich
    OF: Pence
    OF: Choo
    OF: Valencia
    Util: Steve Pearce
    Bench + DL: Reddick, Mauer, D.Peralta, AJ Reed, Lawrie

    SP: Thor, Arrieta, Quintana, Rodon, Porcello, Jon Gray, Bauer
    RP: Osuna, Madson, Street (DL) – I am last in saves

    I feel like my team is talented. Do I stay put at this point or continue to make moves? I could snag E-Rod or DeSclafani off waivers, but with 3 players on the DL (2 spots) and AJ Reed in the minors, I don’t know if I can afford to do so.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Make moves, Choo’s garbage, Tulo’s not great, Votto’s struggling, Pearce isn’t really ownable in a 10 team league… Bauer, Porcello and Gray are on waivers in my two 12 team leagues…

      • Jmoney says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Pearce is about to get 2B eligibility, so between 1B, 2B, and OF, I think that makes him worth it, especially in an OBP/SLG league when he’s cut his K rate in half and walking just as much as he’s striking out. Also Votto was the #4 player overall in my league last year, so I’m not ready to give up on him yet. That said, here’s the best available on waivers:

        Melvin Upton, Duvall, Smoak, Trayce Thompson, Dietrich, David Wright, Cron, Baez, Pillar, Billy Burns

        Andriese, Fiers, A.Wood, Corbin, Karns, Matt Moore, E-Rod, DeSclafani, Junior Guerra, Wisler, Edinson Volquez, Shields, Latos

        Would you pick up any of those over players currently on my roster? Considering Tulo is my only SS, and the best SS on waivers is Alcides Escobar (awful in OBP/SLG), what kind of return would you try to get for Tulo? Do you really think Choo is garbage in an OBP/SLG league? Both Zips and Steamer project him as a top 10 OBP guy ROS…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          @Jmoney: You look at ZiPS and Steamer for Choo but not Duvall? Baez? Pillar? Are you only looking at OBP? Cause Choo’s great for OBP, if he can stay on the field… I didn’t say give up on Votto, I said he’s struggling…

  134. Fears says:
    (link)

    Stupid HTH tactics question:
    Need 8 IP in the next two days to meet the weekly minimum.
    SP: Bumgarner (ChC), Fiers (Tex), Morgan (Atl)
    RP: Phelps (Wsh), Chavez (Min), Givens (LAA), J. Smith (Bal), Ohlendorf (Sea), Jepsen (Tor)

    I only care about ratios and meeting the minimum. Counting stats are already decided.
    Who should I bench?

    (link)

    Hey Grey,
    I am starting to get frustrated with my (lack of) production at 2B.
    I currently and starting B.Dozier and subbing in J.Baez with certain matchups. Problem is neither of them are hitting a lick. It is a keeper league and I think that both of them have value but they aren’t adding anything to my stat line.
    Best options available are
    B.Drury(4 starts at 2B. think he needs 5 to qualify there)
    J.Panik
    B.Lawrie
    D.Dietrich
    S.Pearce
    Are any of these guys actually worth making the switch? Or should i just stand pat for now and hope that my guys heat up.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Dietrich, but I looked to pick up Baez today with the Heyward injury

      • JJ says:
        (link)

        @Grey:
        Yeah. maybe ill just stand pat and hope for the best. Where the hell does that expression come from anyway? Stand pat. I see a visit to google in my near future

        • JJ says:
          (link)

          @JJ:
          Probably originally a poker phrase, with “pat” equaling “optimal”, meaning that drawing more cards is unnecessary. Later the phrase came to be employed in other spheres. “Stand pat” was actively used in U.S. political campaigns of the 1900s, quickly gaining a sense of “being reactionary, resistant to dramatic changes in policy”. Moreover, a noun “standpatter\stand-patter” was coined to denote such politicians.[1]

    Help would you give up Salazar and Fraizer for Stanton in a 12 team H2H league!

    My starting pitchers are Matz,Salazar,Greinke,Estrada,Archer, Darvish & Ryu on DL

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Bye Felica: i want to do it but Salazar has been so good. I rather try Fraizer & Matz but he’s waffling on that offer. I guess im crazy for not insta accepting this deal but i have concerns about Miami scoring runs and him driving runs in without Dee in the lineup. Then theres the injury risk he carries. This is kind of the point where its the trade that either breaks me or i go on to win this year.

    i read somewhere that odor is going to give autographs specifically over items that show him punching that douchebag bautista. what he should do is spend the entire 8 games off doing this in a specified location, get very many people present, and also give all the money made to the survivors of dirty slides, but in the minors, where unlike in the majors where it’s all paid for and they’re all millionaires anyway, but it ruins their careers. this would be awesome, and shove hit shit even more in bautista’s face.

    SO Segura was dropped a day ago and will potentially clear waivers tomorrow. I have Odor at 2B but I know there’s a suspension coming but don’t know when it’s going to start! I have no bench bats and have been streaming out of Wood’s spot so I don’t know if it’s worth trying to claim and stash Segura tomorrow by dropping a pitcher in order to have him as a replacement for Odor. Or should I hold off on Segura and then pickup one of Panik, LeMahieu, Phillips, Schoop, or S. Castro when Odor is actually suspended?

    • Grey

      • ebudz says:

        @Grey: Okay I’ll definitely try but I have last waiver priority so it’s no sure thing! However who do I drop!?

        Also do you think he’ll be serving the suspension this week? I have a tough match-up against the number 1 team this next week and could really use that spot for pitching streaming instead of a bench bat but at the same time it will be nice having Segura’s production if Odor is out this week.

            • ebudz says:
              (link)

              @ebudz: So I’m thinking it’s either Wood, Gausman, McCullers or Odorizzi who I’d drop to stash Segura as a bench bat? I also would be down a streamer spot unless you think another one of those guys can be dropped? Here are the upcoming matchups for those guys:

              Odorizzi @MIA (5.7), vs. NYA (8.3)
              McCullers vs. BAL (14.0)
              Gausman @CLE (4.9)

    Hi Grey,
    I still not sure Eickhoff’s start today ( vs ATL Kelly) because his ER is at least 3 in last five starts and didnt get wins.
    Seems SON trust him $14.7 and you’re also willing to give him a chance.

    Should I stream him today? Thanks.

    Drop Kang or Wieters for Maybin

      @Scott Kimmel:
      are you carrying 2 catchers? If so then why are you? Drop Weiters for Maybin

      • Scott Kimmel says:
        (link)

        we carry two catchers in case our primary c is either hurt or off

        • muskysmell says:
          (link)

          @Scott Kimmel:
          lol carrying 2 catchers is silly if there’s only one slot to start.
          Just pick someone up if your catcher gets injured.

    • Montezuma's Revenge...right now says:

      @Scott Kimmel: you already asked, and got answer on kang vs wieters. when you ask “kang or wieters” it’s the same question, how is this not clear. do we need reading classes or is this a memory issue?

      • Scott Kimmel says:
        (link)

        no dumbass. I asked grey who he would rather have Kang or Wieters. He told me Kang. But I picked up Wieters when they put Boxberger back on the DL and saw Maybin was available so I asked grey would you drop either Kang or Wieters to pick up Maybin? So who needs reading glasses or classes now stupid?

        • Montezuma's Revenge...right now says:
          (link)

          @Scott Kimmel: if kang is greater than wieters, which is answered before, how would it NOT be wieters being the drop. this really is high level trolling.

    Is Tyson Ross droppable at this point? 12 team, mixed.
    I have room for him on my bench, but damn, he’s a nuisance.

    It hurts so bad to do so though because I paid $25 for this chump!!

    14 team league h2h 6cat(standard 5×5 with obp/holds)
    This is my current team:
    C. Castillo
    1b. Pujols
    2b. Harrison
    ss. Villar
    3b. Franco
    Of. Trout, Harper, Polanco
    Utl. Cain, J-Up
    Bench: Park
    N/A: Turner, Arcia
    DL: Travis
    Sp: Strasburg, Salazar, Walker, Matz, Nola, Hendricks, Wright
    Rp: Vizcaino, Giles, Neris, Jepsen, Benoit, Hochevar
    DL: DeSclafani, Ryu, E.Rod

    Been offered Dozier, Cargo, Kemp for Cain and Pujols. I would have to move Park to 1b for the time being and really have no need for Kemp. I could try and flip Kemp for a 1b. Would you take the deal?

    V Velsaquez has two start his week: @DET and @CHC two terrible matchups. Start or sit in 15 team weekly lineup league?

    Would start a MR in his place.

    Maeda is turning into a pumpkin. How many more bad starts before he is a drop?

    Grey, I can choose one of these guys for this week:

    Gausman (@CLE)
    Salazar (BAL)
    Corbin (@PIT)
    Joe Ross (STL)

    Or I could choose two of them and sit one of Rodney, McGee, or Ziegler. Thoughts?

    With Travis Shaw’s uncertainty, would you play him or Dietrich or Howie Kendrick at utility this week?

    20 person h2h league. Just got offered Joc Pederson for Kuechel. Thoughts on the trade?

    My other pitchers are:
    James Shields, SD
    Robbie Ray, Ari
    Nathan Karns, Sea
    Jeremy Hellickson, Phi

    I think Kuechel is expendable but is Joc woth it?
