Kennys Vargas was demoted to Double-A.  Shouldn’t it be Double-Kenny?  It’s official, the Twins hate Vargas.  They gave him all of about ten days to prove himself this time around.  Maybe they just get off on killing Kennys.  Oh, well, that’s all I wanted to say in the lede.  Nothing else.  Just gonna pick my cuticles until I get to that “Anyway, here’s what else” jazz that I always write.  Oh, I guess I could mention Miguel Sano is being called up.  I buried the lede worse than Kendall Graveman!  First Buxton and now Sano, this is the most excitement Minnesota’s seen since Prince was spotted at a Cold Stone Creamery ordering raspberry sorbet, and, without missing a beat, the cashier said, “And if it was warm, you’d order much more,” then high-fived his oblivious co-worker.  I just gave you my Miguel Sano fantasy.  I wrote it with an 80’s glam Sharpie.  I’ll add one thing to that.  Grab him right now!  He could hit .180 with power or he could hit .250 with power, but, either way, at corner infidel, you do worse, as my Jewish grandmother would say.  After saying, “Oy, it’s hot in here.”  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Trevor May – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA down to 4.37.  May let quite a few runners on, but kept erasing them because he listened when told, “May the force outs be with you.”

Johnny Cueto – 8 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA down to 2.84.  Threw 111 pitches yesterday, which brings up a good question, how long until the Yankees pay $35 million a year for this guy only to watch him need elbow surgery?

Taijuan Walker – 6 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, zero walks, 7 Ks.  The Mariners last two starters have limited the Padres to two hits.  The move of Matt Kemp (0-for-4) to the leadoff spot has paid some serious dividends.  If only Bud Black had thought of that.  Maybe the Padres will only spend $400 million this offseason.  For what it’s Wuertz, I like Taijuan more than Montgomery.  Actually, I really like Taijuan.  Really, really.  Really, Really–I shouldn’t have thrown out my thesaurus.

Robinson Cano – 4-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 5th homer.  Even a broken clock is Cano twice a day.

Nelson Cruz – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 20th homer.  It’s time for no one’s favorite game, what has Cruz done since I told you to sell him?!  Well, he only had one homer the entire month of June, so it’s not gonna be great.  In 129 ABs, he has 3 HRs and a .248 average.  He sounds like a real Gyorko!

Brad Miller – 1-for-3, 1 run and his 7th steal, a day after homering.  Ugh, please don’t suck me into your upside vortex.  Please, I have the Cougs to think about too!

James Shields – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA down to 4.14.  Not bad…For Aaron Harang.  Snap!

Jesse Hahn – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA down to 3.35.  This start came against the road Rockies, which are more of a speed bump.  By the by, Hahn’s stats during streams on my team:  15 1/3 IP, 4.70 ERA and 5 Ks.  If I don’t end with a 12 in ERA, I can say he had a Hahn in it.  #firstplaceteamproblems.  And, even though my streaming internet history is scary, I’d continue to look at Hahn through the eyes of the Stream-o-Nator.

Delmon Young – Designated for assignment.  His assignment is to make a Venn diagram illustrating the overlap of Jews and corruption.  So far, he has two overlapping circles.

Wei-Yin Chen – 8 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA down to 2.84.  I started him in two leagues, but I had to pick up LaTroy Hawkins in one league and dropped Chen.  I regret it.  This is the start of a newer, more open Grey.  Call it Greyastroika.

Shin-Soo Choo – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer in as many games.  Maybe he’s drinking Soju before each game, because this Asian is flush!  Choo’s gonna keep hitting homers whether you pick him up or not, no skin off his hide, i.e., no oversized women in his basement that he’s making a dress out of.

Rougned Odor – Missed yesterday’s game due to a dental procedure in which he couldn’t eat after.  Did he get his mouth wired shut like Tami from The Real World: Los Angeles?

Jimmy Paredes – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .319.  Is he the best waiver wire pickup?  I feel like he’s gotta be top five for at least deeper leagues.  Damn, I’m gonna watch the Snoopy balloon on Thanksgiving with a whole new appreciation.

J.J. Hardy – 1-for-4 and his 4th homer.  Hardy’s power in recent years has become more like Hardly.

Buster Posey – Passed concussion tests after taking a foul ball off his head.  Posey getting hit by a foul ball?  Geez, Associated Press, give a man an NSFW!

Brandon Crawford – 1-for-4 and his 11th homer.  Someone should hold a picture of Crawford up to J.J. Hardy.  Maybe his amnesia will subside.

Matt Duffy – 2-for-5, 1 run, and his 3rd steal, hitting .300 and hitting near-.375 in the last week with two homers.  He’s doing a better Matt Carpenter than Matt Carpenter.  Best be calling a trademark attorney!  Fun fact!  “Best be calling a trademark attorney,” is the third most common sentence in the English language.

Santiago Casilla – 0 IP, 3 ER and his 4th blown save.  Romo hasn’t been much better (Is he still dating Jessica Simpson?) so Casilla likely isn’t in any danger.  Yet.  Oh, no, the ominous yet!

Justin Bour – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 8th homer, and his 2nd homer in as many games.  Hot schmotato alert!

Matt Holliday – Did some light running this week.  Sounds like the exercise regimen of Sandoval.  Sorry, that would be light running this week with a donut.

Jaime Garcia – Won’t start on Thursday due to cramping in his groin.  Bad news since he was going to face the White Sox.  The good news is he should be fine after taking a Midol.

Melky Cabrera – 1-for-5 and his 3rd homer, and 2nd homer in the last three games.  Yes, you should own him now.  Now now.

Tyler Flowers – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer, and 2nd in as many games.  Five more and he’ll have a bouquet!

Jose Quintana – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA down to 3.81 vs. John Lackey 7 IP, 2 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.30.  The Stream-o-Nator predicted 6 IP 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 6 Ks and 7 baserunners for Quintana and, for Lackey, 6 2/3 IP, 5 Ks, 2 ER and 6.5 baserunners.  Geez, what a rip!  That’s like two baserunners off!

Neil Walker – 4-for-6, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and a double slam (5, 6) and legs (3).  I come from the future and I bring with you an excerpt from next year’s rankings.  No, I don’t have any stock tips from the next nine months.  Leave me alone.  Any the hoo!  The excerpt reads, “If you remove one hot week in June/July from Walker’s stats, he was awful last year.”

Starling Marte – 4-for-5 and his 13th homer, hitting .285.  I try not to be negative about positive things.  Really, I do, Tony Robbins, but damn I wish I had Marte on more than three teams.  I wish I had him on all of my teams!

A.J. Burnett – 7 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.05.  In yesterday’s post by Paul, he says he has the ADP for the last thirteen years.  I asked him who has been consistently the biggest value grab of the last five years, guessing it was Burnett.  He threw back another good guess, Brett Gardner.  I’ll send a free Razzball shirt to the first person who guesses in these comments the actual guy, assuming it’s not Gardner or Burnett, and if you live in the U.S.  (I don’t know yet the answer; Paul should know by next week.)

Pedro Alvarez – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 11th homer, hitting .248.  I liked Pe-Al better when he was hitting five homers a week and .215.

James McCann – 2-for-4 and his 4th homer and 2nd homer in the last three games.  On our Player Rater, he’s been better than Jonathan Lucroy.  So, the guy that drafted Lucroy in the 2nd round of Tout, would’ve been better off drafting James McCann.

Rick Porcello – 2 IP, 7 ER.  Just another day at the office!  That office is at a toxic waste dump site.

Mookie Betts – 1-for-4 and his 9th homer.  Only one more for ten!  Damn, having Sesame Street babysit me while Mom was out drinking is paying off!

Devon Travis – Sat yesterday for Ryan Goins (0-for-4) as the Blue Jays scored 11 runs.  Holy sit!

Justin Smoak – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 6th and 7th homers.  Could the new Moreland be Smoak?  This sounds like a setup for a bad Native American joke.  Shame on you for letting me think that!  Two homers in a game is a nice way to start a hot schmotato run, but Smoak hasn’t, and likely won’t, play every day.  A shame isn’t it?  Not a shame, a problem, Naughty by Nature.

Jose Reyes – 4-for-5, 4 runs.  These R’eyes have seen a lot of loves, but they’re never gonna see another one like the day he signed a contract.

Jose Bautista – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 16th homer.  Also in this game, Josh Donaldson (3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) hit his 19th homer and Edwin Encarnacion (1-for-5, 3 RBIs) hit his 17th.  Imagine if the Blue Jays played in Coors.  *wavy lines*  That is Bautista’s 30th homer after missing the first 150 games with a hamstring injury.  Hey, there’s Rob Ford at the game, smoking a bong.”  *wavy lines*

Mark Buehrle – 7 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks.  The Blue Jays hitters have the power guys and Buehrle’s got a HR in his name.  What a perfect marriage.

Cesar Hernandez – 1-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI and no steals.  Who is this loser who’s not running?!

Maikel Franco – 3-for-4, 1 run, 2 RBIs.  I’m so torn between wanting him to do so many wonderful things and worried that we’ll lose Prospect Mike down a rabbit hole of Maikel selfies.

Scooter Gennett – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, hitting over .300 in the last week.  Give this guy an endorsement deal for The Money Store!

Adam Lind – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer, hitting .294.  Braun’s fantasy value isn’t yet unreachable for Lind.  Cust kayin’.

Gerardo Parra – 3-for-4, 2 runs.  If the original Gerardo had this many hits, we’d still be listening to remixes of Rico Sauve.

Patrick Corbin – Could debut on Saturday.  C’mon, doode, Thursday’s back to work day in the majors.  What a slacker!

Nick Ahmed – 2-for-5 and is now batting leadoff.  If Ahmed’s a hot schmotato and you know it, clap your hands!

David Peralta – 1-for-3 and his 7th homer.  Basically, everyone the Diamondbacks put in their lineup should be owned.  Sadly, Peralta won’t be in the lineup every day once Ender returns.

Enrique Hernandez – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI, hitting leadoff.  Kike, as he’s known to friends, will now be investigated by Delmon Young.

Jon Lester – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA down to 3.74 vs. Bartolo Colon 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 8 Ks.  I just thought of something.  I haven’t watched SportsCenter or Baseball Tonight in prolly ten years, but does Chris Berman still do his schtick?  If he does, I have a player nickname for him, Bartolo “I’m Sure Something Died In That” Colon.  Tweet him and let him know he can use it.

Michael Cuddyer – Expected to avoid the DL.  Instead, he’ll miss three games a week, hit .230 with no power and announce in late-July, “I should’ve went to the DL.”  Your story’s old and quite predictable, Cuddyer.

Carlos Beltran – Likely headed to the DL with a rib cage injury.  This is not at all similar to Pence who injured himself in a birdcage.

Garrett Jones – 1-for-3 and his 5th homer and could see more time with Beltran likely out a while.  And…Dah!  My gift of BS failed me and I have nothing else nice to say about Jones.

Nathan Eovaldi – 5 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.52 vs. Matt Shoemaker 5 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.91.  Here’s two guys I absolutely loved in March and now I wouldn’t start them in any league shallower than 15 team mixed.  Sometimes I’ll love a player and won’t ever be able to fully say goodbye to them — damn you, Gyorko! — then other players like Eovaldi and Shoemaker, I love, they do me wrong and I never want to own them again ever.  Not sure why that happens, probably aliens.

Erick Aybar – 0-for-3 and his 6th steal.  Anyone who’s read this blog for a minute — an Urban Dictionary minute, which is actually a long time — knows that I have a special place in my heart for guys that steal a base with no hits.  It makes me feel like they’re trying to help my fantasy team.  Aybar now has a homer on Tuesday and a hitless steal game yesterday.  Me likey!

George Springer – Left yesterday’s game with a wrist contusion after being hit by a pitch.  I don’t want to wish ill on anyone except Sandoval, but, well, I don’t own Springer and Giancarlo just broke his hamate bone and these things happen in threes and if something’s happened to Springer, I’ll go and break Sandoval’s hamate for symmetry.

Chris Carter – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer.  It might be too late now, but it was around this time last year that he got hot and he now has two homers in his past three games.  Buy quickly!

Vincent Velasquez – 6 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 6 baserunners (1 BB), 7 Ks.  This was actually the best game I’ve seen by him.  Only threw 88 pitches, 60 strikes and got into the 7th.  Still nothing but a guy I’d look at the Stream-o-Nator for, but baby steps, Bob.

Kendrys Morales – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer.  Nice of him to step up and carry the K-plural name flag for Kennys.

Manuel Banuelos – Being called up to start for the Braves in place of Williams Perez.  Banuelos is a former top Yankee prospect in the vein of Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain and the Yankees former top prospects need a better PR agency.  Manuel likes to do things by hand and whenever there’s a problem with his car, he reaches into the glove compartment for a book that’s addressed to him.  Banuelos has good stuff, as they say, but they don’t mention his crazy control.  He could push a 8+ K/9 in the majors, but it could also come with a 4+ BB/9 and the potential for huge blowouts.  I’d likely take a wait and see approach in mixed leagues.

Matthew Wisler – 5 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners (5 BBs), 6 Ks, ERA at 2.60.  I streamed him yesterday, but with all of those BBs I’m lucky he didn’t shoot both of our eyes out.

Doug Fister – 6 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 4 Ks vs. the Braves.  Well, that’s redundant.  You have to be brave to face a Fister.

Juan Uribe – 1-for-4 and his 6th homer, and 3rd since last Friday.  I mentioned he was a hot schmotato yesterday.  Today, I say, “Well, dur!”

Brandon Moss – 2-for-4, 5 RBIs and his 13th homer, hitting .233.  It was about seventeen hours ago and two thousand and fifteen years after someone said, “What name you want on the birth certificate?  Jesus?  How do you spell it?  With a G?”  When someone asked me if they should drop Moss, then he homers.  Don’t pfft the voodoo that you do!

Carlos Carrasco – 8 2/3 IP, 1 hit, 2 BBs, 13 Ks, ERA down to 3.88.  I said a telling thing not that long ago.  I wish Giancarlo would turn his hospital gown around.  No, wait, that wasn’t it.  People were asking about Carrasco and how his ERA wasn’t very good, and yadda-squared, and I said something like, he’s one of the few pitchers that I’m actually surprised when anyone gets a hit off of him.  Yesterday, he came within a strike of a no-hitter and had a perfect game going into the 7th inning.  I said something else the other day that is also telling for Carrasco.  He could be one of the top five best starters from now until October.  Yeah, better than Kershaw.  Better than Kluber.  Better than Scherzer.  Name someone and he could be better than them.  Go ahead.  Blizzard Jackson?  Who is that?  What you call the teenager at Dairy Queen?  Okay, better than him too.

    my guess for value grab would probably be torii hunter, he seems to always beat his draft value, if only just slightly

  2. Capital Offense says:

    My guess for the best value of the last five years: Jared Weaver. Dude’s always undrafted (or nearly so) and returns good if not spectacular value.

  3. Sean Mulhern says:

    I am going to guess Marlyn Byrd for best value over the last five years.

    Wow, just wow! Loved it, man! Carrasco is God!

    a. With the White Sux win, they escape the World Sewers (an imaginary postseason played by the four teams with the worst records in MLB. But what makes this moment remarkable is that–for the first time in a while, ALL four World Sewers teams are from one league. It’s really remarakable. The most typical configuration is 2 AL doormats and 2 NL doormats. But for most of this season there have been three teams from on league. So here is the seeding:

    (1) .436 Colorado … (2) .418 Miami … (3) .400 Milwaukee … (4) .338 Philadelphia. (((Congrats to the Brewers for breaking the .400 barrier today…..)))

    Traded Harper, Rizzo, Frazier, Ramos, Bogaerts, Hughes for Abreu, Puig, Elsbury, Pollock, Russ Martin, Starlin, and Greinke. How’d I do in general?

    • Mrs.Featherbottom says:
      (link)

      @Gary Thorne: Not good. Too many players, and you gave the 3 best in the deal. Just my opinion though…

    • F.K.A. Ralph says:
      (link)

      @Gary Thorne: I would never trade this many, and I generally wouldn’t trade the best player in the deal. I agree with the other commenter that you’re giving up the best three players in this, BUT if this is a very very deep league (which I doubt) then you’ve bought low on three guys who could be as good as the three you gave up and you got Pollock and Greinke.

      Ramos, Bogaerts, Hughes, Martin, Castro are all sort of irrelevant (but if it’s a super deep league, I guess I like Castro a little more than Bogaerts, I have zero faith in Bogaerts)

      I would not have done this deal, but it is possible (but unlikely) that you will be glad that you made this trade.

      I guess if you’re in like 5th place in a 20 team roto league this is the sort of trade that might work out and give you what you need to win the league. If you’re in first place in a 12 team league, this was probably a mistake.

      • apoxonbothyourhouses says:
        (link)

        @F.K.A. Ralph: Bogaerts isn’t irrelevant in a keeper league. He’s going to be a monster when he remembers he’s got power in that swing.

    • Paul C. says:

      @Gary Thorne: Sorry man but I don’t see how that trade betters your team in any way, other than Greinke and some SBs, and there’s no way those can make up for what you lost with the first three guys listed. I don’t mind trades with large numbers of players, but I just don’t see how you benefited there, in any category other than steals.

    Best value grab – Hunter Pence? He’s the guy you’re never thrilled about drafting, but at the end of the year, he’ll have good numbers (minus injury-plagued 2012).

    • Fungazi says:
      (link)

      @Jordan73: That’s who came to mind for me too, he’s all around consistent which bumps up the value, but not sexy in a single stat so no one wants to draft him.

Oh, and my guess for the ADP Value Thingamawhozee is The King of SAGNOF himself, Rajai Davis.

    A question, Razzballers. My $0 Miguel Sano for his $21 Adam Jones in a 13-team ESPN keeper (one catcher, corners, 5 OFs) league with $3 annual inflation.

    Team is in 8th of 13 this season and very unlikely to push up into the money.

    I am vexed! What would y’all do?

      @GP: I’d want Sano

    In a NL only league 2 players at each infield position, I have A.Russle and Segura who are killing my BA. C. Hernandez and Mercer are FA’s, With limited moves should I switch out both or just one? Please rank ROS the 4 above names. Thank you.

    ADP winner = Denard Span or Ben Revere

    • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
      (link)

      @Joe Shmoe: there’s been seasons over last 4 where span had very little value, but revere could be right. gardner i’m sure has produced better value to cost though.

    Great stuff as always

    1) morleand or paredes ros

    best ADP value JJ Hardy? Todd Frazier?

    Souza has been really bad for a month. Sub .600 OPS over last 30 days. I don’t have a question, just an observation.

    Aybar or Seiman ROS?

  31. Reese says:
    (link)

    For a 12 team mixed keeper, should I accept Desmond, Pence, Norris, Teheran
    For my JD Martinez, familia, street and gattis?

    It’s an auction league and the dollars for Desmond, Norris, pence and Teheran make them cheap keepers while I’d only be keeping jd from my guys. Bet on the bounce back?

      (link)

      @Reese: Not a good deal

    McCutchen or Jose Abreu in a 14 team keep 4 OBP H2H league? I’m considering trading my Cutch for his Abreu and my other keepers will most likely be are Rendon, Strasburg, and Betts. How close is it? Thanks!

  36. Mrs.Featherbottom says:
    (link)

    Great question about ADP value! My first guess was either Bartolo, Rajai, or Buerhle – all mentioned above.
    My answer – A.J. Pierzynski. Quite possibly the utmost lame response. But that is what we are going for isn’t it? The player nobody wants to draft but continually provides teams with above average counting stats?

    Question: In a vaccuum, Freddie Freeman or Yasiel Chicharrón?

      • Mrs.Featherbottom says:
        (link)

        @Grey: It’s got to be a lame player for the ADP thing to work. I was thinking Adam LaRoache might also fit the bill.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, could be

  37. Mantis Toboggan MD says:
    (link)

    nice way for carrasco to go out in a league where i flipped him for thor and carmart. still have him in at least 3 others. He was probably the 6th keeper but this definitely does help me for this year. Maybe Carmart becomes the new 6th keeper. Opp i flipped him to already has way too much pitching, i’ll probably be able to grab him next year in the first non-keeper round (which i think i did this year also), unless of course i keep Carmart.

    Better than Sale! Better than Archer! Ok you got me carried away there but loved CC’s start yesterday, even if it seems like every team should throw at least 1 no-hitter a year now (wont be long till its a fantasy cat!). Hope he keeps the consistency now.

    Desmond or Crawford from this point on? BCraw’s been pretty yawnstipating aside from last night, seems Desmonds power’s returning.

    Hey Grey,

    Shallow 10 teamer.

    1) I just grabbed Sano. Parades is probably the most expendable bat I have (besides Sanatana whos sucking it up in my catcher slot).

    Do you like Chris Carter over either?

    2) End of my rotation I have ERod and Bauer

    Would you take a chance on Corbin over either?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @J: 1) Meh, hold 2) Over Bauer

  48. drew says:
    (link)

    My guess is nelson cruz

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @drew: That’s a great guess too

  49. Niceguybilly says:
    (link)

    My guess is also Papi. Strange, but without position eligibility and an expected decline due to age (which is probably finally correct this year) he gets drafted way too late in relation to the stats he posts.

  50. Stan Gable says:
    (link)

    I once saw Prince throw a javelin across a football field. He had this bizarre limp-wristed throwing style. I should mention I was drunk and could be confusing him with someone else. Anyway, I’m looking to deal Carlos Gomez cause I think his legs are toast and his bad hitting habits are getting worse. What deal do you like better in standard 5×5:
    -Gomez, Xander, Chavez, Motte for Belt, Turner (ss eligible), Gio, Pillar
    -Gomez, Chavez, Motte for Soler, Zimmerman (sp) and Span.
    Nice writeup as always! Cheers, Grey!

  51. Mike Snifferpippits says:
    (link)

    hey Grey,

    I have Abreu and need to make a push. Was offered abreu for hosmer/shields. Is it worth it?
    Also, I think I can swap shields for Zimmerman (the pitcher not the human DL).

    Thanks!!

    Best Value ADP last 5 yrs is either JJ Hardy or James Shields

  54. Zeus says:
    (link)

    The Choo Asian flush blurb followed by Kenny Andersons wife is spectacular. I’m in dire need of pitching in an OBP league. Finally whittled down the era bow 4. Thinking of trading Votto. What calibre pitcher would you look for? Would Arrieta be enough?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Zeus: Thanks! I’d take Arrieta

    BB!!

    Chris Carter, get some!

    Okay, okay, new trade I’m considering. What? I know! I’m not covering myself in Ben-Gay! Stop it! Don’t touch that! Aaaaah. Get that off of me!

    Redraft league. Vogt and McCullers(I give), for Freeman and Cashner(I get).

    That’s the best I was able to get the guy up to. I don’t have to do it, I’m just thinking second half here….

    • Zeus says:
      (link)

      @Phil of the Future: I would say don’t do it. You’re trading for an injured player McCullers probably on an innings limit but is comparable to Cashner. Plus Vogt C elig is a huge value swing.

    • Paul C. says:
      (link)

      @Phil of the Future: Depends on whom you would put at catcher after trading Vogt, because that’s potentially a huge drop-off. Still, if Freeman were healthy I’d say do it, but that wrist injury is worrisome and the kind of thing that could linger or get re-aggravated, and they have no incentive not to leave him on the DL for long periods or shut him down.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Phil of the Future: BB! Ha! Freeman side if you must trade Vogt, who isn’t hurt, for a player that is…

        @Grey: I see what you’re doing, G. I see…..

  58. Ty says:
    (link)

    I’ve had Salazar, Carasco and Kluber all year and my ERA has taken a beating but now I think its finally turning around. Salazar takes a no no into the 7th Carasco into the 9th so that mean Kluber gets one today right?

    Finally dropping Shoemaker after holding him for way longer than i should have (and yes longer than you told me to!)

    Replace him with Heaney, Gausman or Bolsinger? (PS this doesn’t fill my weekly streamer slot)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Nate: Heaney but his next start is bad

  61. Chicken Dinner says:

    My Votto for Soler/Travis.

    Sano would take Votto’s spot at DH, Soler replace Grichuk and Travis replaces Jace.

    Great stuff Grey (I bet that you get tired of hearing that). So, I’m ready to give Shoe the boot. Who do you like ROS to replace him? Erasmo, Wisler, K Hendricks or do I cool my jets for now. Could also grab JJ Hoover anticipating that he’ll end up as the closer. Thanks.

  65. Jose says:
    (link)

    Great stuff Grey! First part of my morning and always the best!

    Assuming I can hold on to my 30-40 point lead, In a H2H matchup would you start Matz, against LAD, Sunday if I also had Cole & Salazar against his Montgomery (surely he won’t throw another complete game, his lack of man muscles won’t allow it). After Matz first performance I wouldn’t think the down side could get too far out of hand, but It is after all only his second start.

    Always greatly appreciated!

      @Jose: Thanks! I’d start him

  66. Wax Winkingdale says:

    After flogging myself for trading away Moss and Carrasco for a decent but now not so great looking trade, I came to my senses and wanted to ask you about some dead weight.

    Is it ok to drop Trumbo? What about Duda? 12 team league.

    Thanks!

    • F.K.A. Ralph says:

      @Wax Winkingdale: Probably, but you should provide the FA options that you’d be dropping them for.

      • Wax Winkingdale says:
        (link)

        @F.K.A. Ralph: @Grey: Need to pick from Span, Pillar, Soler (drop one) or Trumbo for OF and Sano, Mikey Franco (drop one) or Duda at UTL/INF Thanks!!!

  67. Phil of the Future says:

    With Iwakuma coming back soon. Do I drop any of these guys to activate him? I’ve listed all my starters. A few are obvious NO’S, but I wanted to show what I’ve got in terms of starters.

    Danny Salazar
    Jordan Zimmermann
    Alex Wood
    Tyson Ross
    Francisco Liriano
    Carlos Carrasco

    Thanks again.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @JWRAY: I’d ask Mike in his post from yesterday

  73. Yesterday all was right with the world. I had Carrasco and Taijuan starting and the only thing that could’ve made it better was a simple Casilla save. Before his flameout, my WHIP for the day was 0.15. I was ready to take a screenshot, frame it, and put it next to my Daniel Murphy autographed styrofoam cup.

    So, question, and thank you: Ellsbury is returning. Unless Hosmer goes on the DL, I will need to drop Polanco, Grichuk, C. Hernandez, or Moss. (Threw in Moss in case the voodoo works). 10-team 5×5.

  74. Sharl says:
    (link)

    Drop Ozuna for Choo?

      @Lex: Great guess, someone did already though

  76. Birrrdy! says:
    (link)

    Grey, I need to activate Cain off of the DL because Kevin at ESPN told me to. Who’s the drop? Motte, Will Smith, Bolsinger or Robbie Ray.

    It’s a 5×5 NLonly keeper.

    • Paul C. says:
      (link)

      @robert: @Birrrdy!: Depends on needs as far as starter vs reliever. I’d say drop Bolsinger unless you need wins, in which case drop Ray.

      • Birrrdy! says:
        (link)

        @Paul C.: I have Jensen and kimbrel, so I’m thinking I’m good on saves. Only need to keep one of Motte or Smith. Since motte is getting some current saves, is the answer smith?

    Hi Grey

    I am in a shallow league (10-team) and don’t know why Longoria is in waiver.
    I have Abreu , Arenodo , Rizzo for 1B 3B and CI. and stream in UTIL spot.
    Trades don’t happen often so I prefer to consider my demand only.

    I am in number 1 waiver pick, should I waiver Longoria? Thanks

  80. MooseOutFront says:
    (link)

    Is Matz worth my #4 waiver claim? 12 team HTH 6×6. My current pitching is led by Ross, Smardjiaahgkjh, Latos, Quintana, Ventura so I probably have more of a need than most would for SP improvement.

  81. GhostTownSteve says:

    Just a rant here but this is what is so frustrating with my team. This is where I rank in totals for R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG in this order: 1st, 5th, 1st, 2nd, and 1st, but here is where my win-loss totals lie: 6-6-0, 6-5-1, 8-4-0, 8-4-0, and 6-6-0. My team must be synched up like a house full of women, all hot one week and all cold the next. My pitching has been horrible stat wise but that seems to be where a lot of my wins have come from.

    Yo yo Grey! I picked up Sano last week thanks to your advice, and when I went over to ESPN they convinced me to get him in my lineup today.

    Anyway, I have a request. Hutchison was sitting in the FA pool and I grabbed him and dropped Lindor. Good move right? Lindor is not going to give me more value than Hutch right? Lindor is not the next ARod or Tejada right? Please make me feel better! Tell me its going to be OK.

    Also, Holt or Headley ROS?

    (link)

    On the value grab I would have guessed Gardner. But with him off the table. Over the last 5 years based on value (which I consider to be very late round grab with decent payoff) I would say:

    Jhonny Peralta. Always available late, good stats for late grab SS.

    Damn hard question!

    Are we still holding Souza in a 12 team H2H league? He looks straight awful.

  93. Joe says:

    I could see Adam LaRoche, Paul Konerko, or Tim Hudson being great value grabs over the past 5 years. Konerko may not hold up well though because his 2013 and 2014 were subpar. but before that he was always there after the 10th round and was money in the bank for 25-30 home runs and solid average.

    Hey Grey,

    My current pitching staff looks like this (12 team, 5×5):

    SP – Scherzer, Cole, Price, Arrieta, Carrasco, McCullers, Wood, Fiers, Nola (prospect stash)
    RP -Soria, Rosenthal, Axford, Osuna

    Is Fiers droppable? I love the guy after picking him up last year for his 14 K start, but he hasnt done much for me, plus I need a streamer spot. Thoughts?

    Best ADP Value:

    If it was last year I would say Todd Frazier or Charlie Blackmon.

    5 Years is a long time to remember….

    I’m going with

    Nelson Cruz (Every Year all I hear is Steroids was why he USED to have power
    Hunter Pence (He always seems to be a 4th/5th round pick with 2nd round production every year
    Marlon Byrd (He had one injury year, but otherwise well overperformed each year)

    Off the cuff ADP champion guess: Matt Holliday.

    Until people started drafting him in the first round this year, I might have guessed Clayton Kershaw, but he started to be overvalued last season.

    See, Kershaw was like some nice Orange County property that I’m going to pretend I bought back in 1998 before the housing bubble and back when Kershaw was actually just a guy with a lot of strikeouts and WHIP north of 1.40 and you could get a three bedroom home for $200k, so even Mike Trout could afford one before hitting arbitration (wait, wasn’t he in grade school back then?). I held on because I had high hopes for him, just like I had high hopes for Laguna Beach before every house on the coast was bought up by Donald Sterling and that Microsoft guy. Fair enough.

    Then, in 2008, I’m pretending that I noticed that my $200k home was suddenly worth $800k, because that totally happened. Not to me, but it happened. So, I sold it. Traded it for a fixer-upper named after Paul Goldschmidt. Just like trading the real Kershaw for the real Goldschmidt in my fake baseball league.

    And so, the lesson to be gleaned for that morass of flaming irons and mixed metaphors is that Kershaw saw his value go too high and then too low and then just right and then he was eaten by a bear.

    But man, no one ever remembers Hatt Holliday, to the point where people call him Hatt when his name is actually Matt. That’s life in the NL Comedy Centra, baby!

    Above you said it was going to be someone boring and lame. So I assume you are talking about Daniel Murphy.

    Hey Grey. Thank you for the current article and the gang for the others that have been posted. Appreciate it and keep up the great work!

    Not asking for help, just more describing my current situation with my team. This is it:
    Yasmani Grandal, Chris Davis, Devon Travis, Rougned Odor, Addison Russell, Manny Machado, George Springer, Justin Upton, Kevin Pillar, Gregory Polanco, Jake Arrieta, Jacob deGrom, Jesse Chavez, A.J. Ramos, Brad Ziegler, Chase Anderson, Nathan Karns, Brad Boxberger and Jake Odorizzi.

    On my 2DL/2NAs: Anthony Rendon, Patrick Corbin, Kyle Schwarber and Joe Ross.

    Not really sure where I can improve that. The guys on waiver who’d probably be good ones I think are Cesar Hernandez, Giovanny Urshela, Andrew Heaney, Brett Anderson and Cody Anderson. And most of that doesn’t seem like it would upgrade my team much. And the trade market is barren.

    I’m just glad that you guys are here so that I can reap the rewards of when there’s a great pitcher or such to pick up.

    Sup Grey?

    12t 7×7 H2H (OBP + XBH / QS + IP)

    Guy in my league threw out Harper + Price + E5 for my Rizzo + Cole + small piece. I know Harper’s been a sell and I’m awfully fond of Rizzo.. basically a bum deal for me? Counter-offer? Thanks.

        @Grey:

        You’d take Harper + Price + E5 for Rizzo + Cole + a piece? Hmm, OK. Thanks.

        I should clarify, it is a keeper league. You can keep 5 players max for up to 3 years. Can not keep anybody from the 1st/2nd round. Does that change things?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Harper as a keeper isn’t bad, neither is Price or Edwin

          • FillyP says:
            (link)

            @Grey:

            Can’t keep Price/E5 as they went in the first two rounds. Harper is a potential because he’s 3rd round. Rizzo was taken in the 3rd (can keep) and Cole in the 8th.

            The keeper formula is 2015 draft round + 2016 ADP (round) / 2.

            It’s basically a win-now move, right?

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Don’t like it as much unless it helps you win now

              • FillyP says:
                (link)

                @Grey:

                Well, turning Avisail into Harper would be a solid win-now move. Losing Rizzo/Cole for Harper/Price/E5 is def a play for this year. Cole is a strong keeper though.. and he’s actually outplaying Price right now. Do you think he can keep it up ROS?

                Leaning toward holding tight. Def need to make a play for OF if I want to win though – I’ve got Jones, Cruz, Cain, Avisail, Eaton, and Aoki on the DL. 4 OF league. Pretty putrid.

    Grey,

    JoFer’s first inning back

    Blanco 94 in there (paints the black)
    96 just outside
    94 outside
    96 base hit to center, a little flare

    Panik 94 ball
    96 in there (paints the black outside)
    89 slider outside
    94 fastball up and away (missing)
    88 changeup (fouled off)
    94 outside plate hit down the line for a double

    Duffy 84 breaking ball (strike) inside black
    85 breaking ball (swinging strike) down and in
    99 fastball right down the middle taken for strike 3!

    Posey 98 fastball outside black lined out to right (sac fly)
    (both runners move up, Blanco scores)

    Belt 97 up and inside
    97 pop up (jammed him) botched by both Rojas and Hechevarria

    Crawford
    95 fastball
    95 fastball (down the line foul)
    89 breaking ball off the outside edge (swinging)
    90 breaking ball outside for a ball
    95 fastball hit to right but right at Ichiro for out number 3

    That was the craziest set of mishaps in one INN as you’ll ever see.

    a. The hit by panik would have been caught by a better 3B.
    b. Yelich missed the cutoff man allowing panik to get to 2B.
    c. The throw by Ichiro off of Posey’s SF so nonchalant allowing Panik to reach 3rd easily.
    d. The huge gaffe by SS and 3B that should have been caught allowing panik to score!

    Otherwise, JoFer has everything going for him except the infield defense.

    Cheers,

    hey Gray,

    I am in a ten team keeper league and am at the point where i need to think who my future keepers should be and whom, if the right package is offered to win this year, is expendable. i i could keep four of the following:

    stanton 2 years left at 1st round,
    abreu 2 years left, 5th round
    frazier 3 years left, 6th round
    betts 3 years left, 11th round,
    puig 1 year left, 20th round

    these next players werent draft at one point so if kept they will move up 7 rounds each year

    corey dickerson 2 years left, 15th round in year 1 and 8th round in year 2.
    carlos correra 21st round 3 years left (21st round in 1 year, 14th in the 2nd year and then 7th rounder in the last year,
    sano 3 years left 22nd round keeper in year one, 15th in year 2 and 8th in year 3.

I call bullshit on them, they couldn’t send home two black chefs on the same night without fear of a media lashing calling the show racist. I think the only reason they chose the red team to win is because the Cajun A/C tech had been on his way out the last 3 weeks and they had to.

    Quickie today. I picked up Great Cesar’s Ghost yesterday, but then decided to use him (learn to steal more!) to put a claim on Rodon, who’d been dropped, because I need pitching. I see his ownership dropped drastically everywhere. Yet he’s still K9’ing. I made the move, got the dude, but wondering why folks are giving up on a stud kid who really only had two stinkers in June.

    I10 tm 6×6 H2H keeper league, trying to make up for losing both Stanton and Buxton to the DL, current roster is:

    C- Grandal
    1b – Abreu
    2b – Wong
    3b – Arenado
    ss – Duffy (just dropped Segura for him)
    if – Hanley
    lf – Granderson
    cf – trout
    rf – souza
    of – polanco
    util – moreland (just dropped Rodon for him)
    bn – Stanton
    bn – Buxton
    dl – pence

    P – Cole/Salazar/Pineda/Tanaka/Chavez/Fiers/Ross/Matz/Grilli/Osuna/Ramos/Jensen/Iwakuma/A.Miller

    I usually don’t carry more than 1 bench bat so that I can stream, but we only have 3 DL spots and the other 2 are being used by Iwakuma and Miller. I’m leaning towards dropping either Fiers or Ross (instead of dropping say Souza or Polanco who would be keepers next yr) to pick up a bat and just not be able to stream for a few weeks until Stanton/Buxton come back…..would you consider any of these FA’s worth a pickup ; Carter, Choo, Grichuk, Lind, De Aza, Cesar Hernandez, Parra?

    Grey,

    In a 10-team H2H 5×5 Yahoo Std league. Team is as follows:

    C – Santana
    1B – Pujols
    2B – Wong
    SS – Tulo/Correa
    3B – Donaldson
    OF – C Gomez, J Pederson, B Burns
    Util – Arenado
    DL – Stanton, Springer

    Don’t ask me how I was able to draft Stanton, Gomez, Tulo, and Donaldson on the same team (you won’t anyway), but as you can see I’ve been hit by a couple key injuries. Would you consider dropping Springer, given the injury/timeline (out of DL spots)? If so, who would you take out of these guys that are on the FA list:

    – Bruce
    – Tomas
    – Revere
    – Yelich
    – C Carter
    – L Martin

    Grey,

    Last week I traded my next year 4th rd pick for JD Martinez in my 10 keeper league. We keep total of 7 guys. I am currently 3 game out and making a run with the trade above. Looking at my team below, should I hold or aim to trade another draft pick for another OF or SS. Or pick Yunel Escobor to play SS and plug Hanley in the OF.? Do you think I need to get a a pitcher or hitter the most?

    Guys I could get via trade but I need to move draft picks and since they are out they are asking alot.. Guys like Nelson Cruz, Cespedence would require a 2nd rd and or Jansen RP would be a 4th rd pick. Another owner has C Dickerson but I don’t want him.

    I would be getting later draft picks in the trade, probably a 9th or 10th rd.

    Starters
    Martin
    Fielder
    LeMiehu
    Arenado
    Hanley
    Brantley

    In a keeper league, would you give up Cutch for Correa. Can keep either forever. Have Russell or Bogey as SS options right now. Too much for Correa? I figure OF is easier to cover than an elite SS and I am probably 1 to 2 years out from realistically challenging for the league.

    Is Teheran droppable, or still worth stashing. I want to pick up Gausman.

    How do you rank these SS long term (can keep forever):

    Correa, Russell, Bogey, Seager

    Thanks for the help and humor!

    I know it’s a bit of a crapshoot, but odds that Clippard stays as a closer for the rest of the season?

          I’d prefer to trade V-Mart if that’s what you’re asking

    Scott Kazmir or Jeremy Guthrie for pitchers… Adam Dunn or the great zombino himself Mark Teixeira for hitters.
