“…and the Fantasy Baseball Overlord smitten thee with wheat, maize and Christian Yelich, then said, ‘You can’t have all three, you must choose two,’ and the people of Jerusalem, Wisconsin, a small city outside of Milwaukee, received their bounty of corn and wheat to make beer and dispatched Yelich to a nearby hospital.” — The Book of Uecker. *makes sign of the cross* Sadly, it’s written, therefore it is, as they say in elementary schools using fifteen-year-old textbooks.  The bright side to come out of Yelich’s body issue — not the one that your sister touched herself to, the other one — is Trent Grisham should leadoff and play every day. Remember, he was a guy who hit 13 HRs and stole six bags, while hitting .381, in only 34 minor league games, and could be worth a pick up in all leagues for the stretch-run. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Robinson Chirinos – Fun fact! Rob-Chiri is not related to Neneh Cherry, but sometimes when he gets in the crouch, he calls it his Buffalo Stance. Also, on the Player Rater, Uh-Oh Chirinos is a top 11 catcher, so if you’re in a 12-team league, he should be at 100% owned. Of course, he’s not.

Garrett Cooper – Nope, there are no 1st basemen this week to add, just like there were no 1st basemen last week to add. Don’t worry, there’s about forty-five 2nd basemen. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Starlin Castro – On the 7-day Player Rater, Castro is a top 10 bat, which is something we all saw coming two weeks ago. You remember two weeks ago, when Hot Girl Summer ended and thus began Fat Boy Fall.

Robinson Cano – Me buying 2nd basemen the last two weeks can be compared to me buying vape products. “Yes, I’m here to meet with a same-day loan specialist. I’m looking to borrow $10,000 to buy vape products in case they get outlawed. For starters, I need a 4-liter container of Kiwiberry juice.” If you think this does not affect you, let me paraphrase my favorite poem, “First they came for our Juuls, and we did nothing.”

Ryan McMahon – Whee! He’s in Coors! And I’m drinking Kiwiberry vape juice cuz DGAF!

Kolten Wong – I was looking at Wong and he surprised me. His launch angle is up and he’s more than a streamer–Sorry, I’m typing this up in a highway rest stop. His stats did surprise me, however. 10/20/.280? I know offense is goofy, but that’s not bad at all.

Nick Solak – Sure, we’re all excited that the Slovak Olympics baseball team has a new 2nd basemen for the 2020 Olympics, but I’m also excited for Solak in the next two weeks and 2020. Yo, Rangers, get some Odor-eaters and clean out your clubhouse!

Scott Kingery – Was mentioning this to a commenter the other day after Kingery sped around the bases on an inside-the-parker, Kingery has 30+ steal speed, in addition to the 25-homer power. Feel like I’ve already started writing my Kingery 2020 sleeper. Inject 25-homer, 30-steal guys directly into my veins.

Hanser Alberto – Fun fact! His full name is Hanser Alberto Canada. His brother, Edmonton, misses 100% of the shots he takes.

Nico Hoerner – Already gave you my Nico Hoerner fantasy. It was written while wondering why the Green Day guy sings with a British accent.

Hernan Perez – Will the middle infidels ever end this week? I’m guessing yes, but it’s simply a guess and I am a simple man like Simple Jack who dresses like Slingblade every Halloween.

Mauricio Dubon – Here’s what Prospect Itch wrote the other day, “(Dubon) could provide a spark at the keystone in San Francisco. Dubon’s probably not as good as his .302/.345/.477 AAA line, but he’s popped 20 home runs and stolen ten bags across 123 games and should be tracked in all leagues, like I’d like a sniper to track Grey.” What the hell, man?

Harold Castro – He’s hitting near-.420 in the last week, or as Ted Williams’s Frozen Head once said, “A bad season.”

Victor Reyes – Boku Tigers hitters this week gonna take me down to Paradise City! Where the grass is green and their pitchers are shitty. By the way, why does Axl keep wanting to be taken home to Paradise City? If that shizz was paradise, why’d you leave, bro? Couldn’t afford it due to skyrocketing rents? You can’t earn a livable wage elsewhere, then expect to get back to paradise. Doesn’t work that way. You need to stay there and eat the cheese off of discarded pizza boxes.

Kyle Tucker – Already gave you my Kyle Tucker fantasy. I wrote it while getting black market Gucci loafers from some guy named Gustavo. Also, gave you my Gavin Lux fantasy, while bartering with Gustavo.

Kyle Lewis – This guy being called up and outproducing Tucker and Lux, combined, is so baseball that baseball is filing a trademark infringement case.

Justus Sheffield – This weekend’s streamers are a mess, so not sure how much I trust Sheffield, but he’s a Streamonator call. Like the call it makes to True Value Hardware.

Ivan Nova – Same thoughts as Sheffield for Nova, but it’s a Streamonator call.  “Do you have any nuts and/or bolts that look like they’d make nice friends?”

Nick Wittgren – Here’s what I said this morning, “(Hand) left the club to get an MRI. It came back clean, which is misread as more proof by the old Greek mother who uses Windex to ward off disease. Not, clean like that, Athena. Francona said Hand will be day-to-day and might need to be built back up to the closer role, so the 9th inning is wide open, and I mean that literally. The Indians have a gorgeous bullpen behind Hand, but a bit too gorgeous because they can go a bunch of different ways. I grabbed Nick Wittgren, but there’s also Adam Cimber, Oliver Perez, Tyler Clippard and Nick Goody.” And that’s me quoting me!

Jairo Diaz – *teases hair straight up with four cans of Aqua Net, grabs microphone* Belting, “Holding out for a Jairo ’til the end of the night! He’s gotta be strong! He’s gotta throw fast! And he gotta be *mumbles* something-something fight…I need a Jairo!”

Shaun Anderson – Is Will Smith’s back issues okay? *sees ten years worth of magazine covers about Will Smith joining Scientology* So…not sure, but Anderson might be worth stashing if desperate.

SELL

Lorenzo Cain – On the 30-day Player Rater, Cain is ranked around 225 overall. Uh, Booboo Stewart, that is not good. That’s about the same as Pedro Severino. Pedro Severino is not the name of Luis Severino. The Pedro and the Luis are different. The long journey that is a fantasy baseball career is coming to the end for Cain…Sugar! and, if you still own him, you’re the guy wearing the captain’s hat on the Titanic pointing to the lifeboats.

Joey Votto – Was shocked to see Votto owned in 88% of RCL leagues. You’re nostalgic for a better time. I can understand that. If you’re feeling nostalgic, find some clean drinking water, use your AOL username, RossNRachel4Evr and only use 140 characters in your tweets, but lose Votto.

out of that group only even bradley/lugo even arguable. and since lugo gets off days after going multiple innings (and the mess NEED him to go multiple whenever he does one usually) it’s easily bradley. CLE isn’t using only wittgren there anyway (all year they’ve moved around guys when hand had off day etc). o.perez, goody, cimber (earlier in year) now with 2 more call up guys, it’s a shit show to decipher

I’m making it to my 10 team h2h cats league finals on a tie! Here’s my question for you guys – do you think I should continue to stream? Cats: w, qs, k’s, hr allowed, era, whip, k/9, and svhd
My staff is scheduled for 19 starts – scherzer, verlander, flaherty, buehler, syndergaard, Bauer, darvish, and sonny gray.
His staff is scheduled for 10 starts – cole, Castillo, minor, Yarborough, and Luchessi.
He hasn’t streamed all year. My three options are to 1) continue streaming, 2) hold onto Gallen (putting me at 21 starts for the 2 week matchup), or 3) drop Gallen to roster my first catcher since May (would grab Sean Murphy). Thoughts?

Gallen has SD in petco then SD in chase. Was thinking adding a catcher would give me a boost in hitting cats. Up 9 starts I figured k’s, w, qs were in the bag. Maybe I could stream catchers on days with no good pitchers available and only add slam dunk streams?

Curious what your thoughts are on Rizzo? Done for the next two weeks?

Fair point on the Gallen starts. So if I hear you right – hold Gallen, no need to stream, if I fall behind in hitting grab Sean Murphy next sunday (at the cost of that second Gallen start).

Replacements for rizzo: canha, Pujols, belt, Votto. Top two?

Any faith in hiura contributing over the next two weeks?

I need 3 Ks from Justin Wilson and Pedro Baez to sneak into the final – it’s tough relying on MRs to flip the script, but here we are!

Reply to  Grey

Here is the lineup I’m rolling with – I need to somehow get to an .280ish avg – I think that’ll help me win the category:

C- Empty
1B- Voit
2B- Mondesi
3B- Empty
SS- Lindor
OF- Alvarez, Castellanos, Empty
UTIL- Story
B- Contreras, Bellinger, Kingery, Betts (hurt)

I’m playing Bellinger tonight if I fall behind in BA

SP- Green, Quintana (YOLO x2)
RP- Hendricks, LeClerc, Melancon, Wick, Justin Wilson
Spare P spot

B- Magill, Neris, Flaherty, Hendricks, Paxton

I need Green to dominate and then hopefully take some pressure off Quintana – my opponent is countering with Gallen and then Rogers, Hader, Workman, Jimenez, Gallegos

I’m hoping Rogers and Hader won’t pitch today since they’ve pitched a lot the last 2 days.

Hopefully Betts getting hurt doesn’t impact me and I can sneak into the finals… I have the most uneasy 9-5 lead going into today. I can easily lose 7-6

if yr benching contrereas and kingery since you are worried about average as it appears….
– mondesi is up against HOU pitching (it’s only miley of course) and has had about 5 or 6 Ks and no hits the last 2 days against other HOU pitching

obviously if you also need steals benching him is batshit town.

Yo Grey, looking for a waiver pickup to help preferably in HR and Runs (SB are bonus). No keeper considerations obviously, so who would you grab for ROS? Depending on the position of the player I pick up, this guy would replace either Travis Shaw (if 3B or OF eligible) or Joey Wendle (if 2B eligible). Wendle sucks, but at least he’s playing and scoring runs, unlike Shaw.

David Fletcher (2B, 3B, SS, OF)
Kevin Newman (2B, SS)
Dexter Fowler (OF)
Hanser Alberto (2B, 3B, SS)
Nick Solak (2B)
Brian Goodwin (OF)
Anthony Sandander (OF)
Trent Grisham (OF)
Kyle Lewis (OF)

holy crap, didn’t know it was just friday the 13th.

AL only with OBP over AVG, net steals over steals, total bases added h2h 10 teamer, keep 3 at previous season’s ADP’s. otani getting the lazy team out ROS but no DL slot business, i already dropped upton here for lewis in same situation since i had no intention of keeping upton at his this year price
C t.murphy (might just go romine here shortly, murphy’s been getting jerked around again lately even though he’s a steady as all hell hitter, must really suck at catching)
1B antana (2B/SS/OF, possible LAST round keeper)
2B altuve (not keeping at 1st round price)
SS villar (he’s about break even now, DID keep this year as i’m pretty sure around an 8th)
3B vlad (3rd rounder)
CI rowdy
MI odor
OF (4) mercado, grichuk, k.davis (FINALLY, we had to only wait about 4.5 months where he was too hurt or freaked out that he impregnated somebody till he’s hitting again, not paying his keeper price though, traded away bieber to get him and ed-rod), k.lewis
util (1) s.brown
BN otani (hitter ONLY here, if pitcher + hitter i’d just keep him for SURE at his 9th round price)
DL: box wine (5th), pence
possible keeper pitchers but almost certainly not doing them: paxton (3rd), ed-rod (8th)

i’m coming off bye now (gallo is back soon too supposedly), i’d assume vlad (3rd), gallo (5th) but for the last slot is antana (last) worth throwing away otani hitter (9th) here? i can wait till tomorrow to see if LAA do what’s right, but they are pretty much the worst team in entire league based on past stuff for trusting them to do that. by the way look at how utterly horrible their lineup is now with trout/upton/otani out of it. yikes.

possible obtained players if i drop otani by tomorrow: sogard (2B/SS/OF, back now), astudillo (they’re benching cron for this fat guy, but does qualify at a lot of spots C/1B/3B and could sub for s.brown (he faces just a TON of lefties upcoming, or t.murphy), c.stewart, h.castro, guzman, romine (similar to astudillo except he doesn’t qualify at 3B but IS hitting well all year, i’ve done quite well during kraken’s other DL stints with him in deep leagues)

that was villar’s this year ADP, here without actually counting his AL only ADP generally it’s just divide by 2 (removes the NL half of players) then divide by 10 (10 picks per round), and round up. it was somewhere in the 5th. he was an 8th last year so i took the value. if not for antana doing this AND otani hitter being ROS out but no DL tag i’d definitely still want otani hitter in the 9th (his this year ADP so his next year keeper price). if antana even does half of this next year 20th whatever round is awesome. i had vlad this year at that price.

Batting:
Rs – I’m up 15
HRs- I’m up 11
RBIs- I’m up 18
SBs- I’m down 2
Ks- I’m down 14
AVG- I’m up .017
OBP- I’m down .024

Pitching:
W- Tied
Ls- I’m up 1
SVs- Tied
Ks- Up 1
ERA- Up .001 (He has Gallen tomorrow plus bullpen, I have Quintana plus bullpen)
WHIP- down .020
K/9- down 4

Current score – I’m up 7-5

His bullpen is ridiculous – headlined by Taylor Rogers and Hader – he also has Workman and Joe Jimenez who is suddenly in shutdown mode

Lots of potential for me to lose – especially with Gallen playing at 4 and Q playing at 2:20 so if Q gets blown up, then I’m F’d pretty hard as that will flip ERA and I’ll tie Ls and he can bench Gallen – plus if Q doesn’t K anyone like he did last time then Gallen can get him Ks as well… I’m essentially pinning the hopes of me making the finals on Q

Any idea yet on how you are going to rate guys next year based on the juiced ball? MLB is bound to take the ball away, so would 2019 be considered an outlier and devalued or even disregarded. Maybe deduct 15-20% of 2019 stats when figuring out 2020 stats? What does your greydar tell you?

wasn’t there some espn or yahoo douchebag who said soto was a HUGE AVG risk this year, even after what he did last year in a full season at 19, pretty sure i remember somebody mentioning that in preseason.

Emotional game a Wrigley. When Brault gave up his 5 hr in the third inning Ray Searage was overwhelmed by his young pitchers efforts to pitch the right way.

10 team OBP/QS 7 moves left for this week and next

1) With Muncy back, would you hold onto Lux and see how the playing time shakes out (maybe he plays all over the place?) or drop now for: Grisham, Pollock, Canha, Eloy, Newman, W Calhoun, Gregorius?

2) Like any of these streamers this weekend?

Hello Grey,

H2H 6×6 QS Finals Week

I have one move left and my opponent has none so the choice between Cueto and Sheffield is mine.

Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated

After trying to trade for him for nearly 3 months, Eugenio’s owner plopped him on waivers and I scooped him up June 27th. My team log for him is 45/29/53/2 .299 in 234AB… that’s just sick!

Would you rather cut d Murphy or hiura? Rockies are in Coors until middle of next week. Hiura wont play until their upcoming home stand from what I read. Dont know how true that is

Oh my goodness, Castellanos does it again. People are probably winning leagues with him on their roster. So much winning right now. Serious FOMO.

He’s long past Greek God of Hard Contact now, I petition for calling him Shazam! hence forth.

oof… 15 hr 26 rbis in 40 games. wow. the only hitter hotter might be Saurez.

so if you had to pick 1 starter to throw in a tight era/whip race (we’re both currently under 2.00/1.10), Heaney tonight vs TB or Ryu tmw @ NYM? I’m torn *thinking emoji*

Monday batty call, Schwarber home vs Sonny Gray $3 or Ian Desmond home vs Matz $53? Hittertron obviously says Desmond being home but I fear him actually gettting the start and I need to add him Saturday to play him monday( yes stupid rule in my league).

I was able scoop up Odor in a league today. I eagerly await him going cold immediately, like he has so many times before. It’s good to have some things you can count in this crazy fantasy world.

You’ll want to stock up on flavored alcohol too. If the vaping body count has undies in a bundle, you can imagine how upset people are going to be when they learn about the effects of alcoholism.

How would you rank the following OFs: Aristides, Avisail, Grisham, Canha? I currently have Aristides, Avisail and Canha, and thinking of dropping one of them for Grisham.

Thanks, and have a good weekend!
