Last week Prospect Itch drew up his Prospect Must Stash List. He made a caricature of each minor leaguer he was interested in and added a little mustache. It really was quite remarkable…*intern whispers in ear*…I see, so being told he absolutely did not do that, but instead he gave you all his prospects he’s stashing in redraft leagues. Jose Miranda was on that must stash list, and his mustache was fantastic–*intern leans in, annoyed*–Miranda did not have a drawn-on mustache. So, I gave you a Jose Miranda fantasy back in October of last year. There I said, “(He) possesses the usual Twins’ tendencies — Twindencies? — he doesn’t strike out at all and doesn’t walk a ton. At 23 years of age, Miranda ended 2021 across two levels (Double and Triple-A) with 30/4 and .344/.400/.575 with a 12% strikeout rate. Beginning to think he’s Luis Arraez with 30 homer-power. His contact skills won’t just disappear, even if they fade a little because the majors are tougher than the minors, he’ll still hit .280 with a 17-19% strikeout rate.” And that’s me quoting me! To compare him to a non-Twins player, he’s like a poor man’s Ty France. I will call him, Miranda’s In France To Stop Carrie From Marrying Mr. Big Because He’s About To Get MeToo’d. With him being recalled by the Twins — hey, I just remembered, we have a top prospect! — I’d add Jose Miranda in all leagues. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Miguel Sano – Hit the IL with a knee sprain. Unclear when the injury occurred. His knee said nothing, just pointed up to Sano’s stomach.

Chris Paddack – 5 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.15. Chris Paddack’s fixed! *sees he’s faced three garbage teams of four and has a 7.2 K/9* Um, sorta! It’s better than last year, but he’s far from exciting. He’s barely passable in matchups, but the Streamonator likes his next one, and I could see it. It is, after all, vs. the disgrA’s.

Jhoan Duran – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 3.00, and his 1st save. Halle Berrylujah, someone I picked up, who’s been good, actually got a save. It’s an early Christmas miracle. Praise to the Baldelli, all hail Rocco. Will Duran get the next save? How’s a strong maybe? Baldelli’s said all along he doesn’t believe in having a closer. Duran might get 20 saves the rest of the way, or not another for a month.

Tyler Wells – 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.50. Let Baby Jessica guide your fantasy baseball teams, and don’t fall into the Wells.

Paul Goldschmidt – 2-for-3 and his 2nd homer. Au Shizz!

Steven Matz – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 4.56. Streamonator loved this start, and hates his next one. I agree with the robot. That’s not to say I agree with The Robot, the dance.

Giovanny Gallegos – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 5.63. Not bad on six days of rest. Let’s see how he looks after two weeks of rest, and let Ryan Helsley close. No? Not my call to make? Oh well. Guess Gallegos is still the closer, but let’s see him in more than one game per week.

Zack Greinke – 6 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 1 K, ERA at 2.57. His K/9 is lower than his ERA. I will now cackle for fifteen minutes. At 14 1/2 minutes, I start to turn blue and medics are called. Hey, I’m good. I was just looking at Greinke’s 2.25 K/9. Welp, here we go again. *begins to cackle again* “You’re turning violet, Violet!” That’s medics making fun of my blue face color.

Pablo Lopez – 4 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA up to 1.61. The Regression Fairies don’t wear white until Memorial Day and will ruin your ratios.

David Peralta – 3-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer. David Peralta only seems to do anything on short schedule days when he might find himself on a fantasy team, and for that we thank him. Oddly enough, he can return to booty after our batty call.

Jordan Luplow – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 1st steal, and two homers on Sunday, hitting 2nd. Hot schmotato alert!

Zac Gallen – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 1.27. The Pitcher of the Month for April was a 65-way tie with 65 pitchers who had an 1.50 ERA or lower.

Gleyber Torres – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .239. Whoever secretly hypnotized Gleyber to think he was hitting vs. the Orioles, we raise our glass to you. Please put down your swaying watch fob. *raises arms* I must kill the queen? What’s going on with me?

Jordan Montgomery – 5 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.88, and this start was in Toronto, which had me super scared for JoMo, but JoMo’s got JoMomentum! And a dead ball.

Dylan Cease – 7 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, zero walks, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.48. Carpe Cease! Seize the Cease! Yeah, I’m a big fan, wrote a Dylan Cease sleeper post in the preseason, which seemed dumb at the time, and even dumber now, but I swear I was wearing my glasses which make me look very smart, so how dumb could it be? Hmm?

Patrick Sandoval – 6 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 1.29. This start, uh, started with him down two quick runs, and it looked like I wanted to throw my computer in the garbage while it was open to my fantasy team, but like all good starters, which Sandoval is one, he bared down, took off his shorts, and threw a solid final five innings. Sandoval was also a sleeper. In the preseason, Cease vs. Sandoval was a start I would’ve loved to see, and in-season, it was great, I think. I  don’t know, MLB blacks me out of all Angels games. Very cool fan experience.

Jose Altuve – 0-for-3 as he was activated from the IL. Kevin from ESPN’s Get Him In Your Lineup Department said, “I didn’t realize Zoom calls were ‘pants mandatory.'”

Jake Odorizzi – 6 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.15. Is it okay to say I was rooting against this schmohawk? Lots of people grabbed him in my weekly leagues for his two-start week, and, well, let’s just say my voodoo doll is dusty for a reason. That shizz didn’t work at all. Next time I drink chicken blood and chant some shizz during a game.

Yordan Alvarez – 1-for-3 and his 7th homer. Captain Woo Cubano needs to hit out 50 homers this year for daddy, let’s go!

Jeremy Pena – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer. Bobby Witt Jr.! Julio Rodriguez! Steven Kwan? Sure, Steven Kwan! Just reciting everyone’s first-week-of-the-season Rookie of the Year predictions, and not mentioning the guy who’s been the best, Pena.

Marco Gonzales – 6 IP, 3 ER, 10 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 4.05. No Ks, bleh stuff. This guy manages to hide in plain-sight. Just under the surface. Marco…Gonzales…Marco…Gonzalez…Streamonator hates his next start, and I hate all his starts, so bleh.

Yandy Diaz – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 2nd homer. Didn’t see this homer, but Yandy’s launch angle makes me think Yandy hit it off the plate, which no one saw, and it bounced out.

Drew Rasmussen – 5 IP, 1 ER, 1 hit, 1 walk, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.13. I’m all-in on Drew Rasmussen. I am fussin’ with the ‘mussen!

Daulton Jefferies – 5 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.81. Muck around in the mud and eventually you get dirty.

Max Fried – 6 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.00 vs. Chris Bassitt – 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.61. This matchup was billed as, “One guy who went to Harvard-Westlake with Jack Flaherty and Lucas Giolito and one guy who answers to ‘What’s up, dog?'”

Austin Riley – 2-for-4 and his 7th homer. An actual home run?! In 2022?! Am I dreaming?! Someone pinch me anywhere from the waist up! I must be dreaming! I said waist up! Watch it!

Mark Canha – 2-for-4 and his 1st homer. Canha’s first homer? Geez, at least he can laugh about it.

Robinson Cano – Designated for assignment. This isn’t your slightly older brother’s Mets. Those Mets were run by the Wilpons and would’ve had Cano batting third. Now it’s up to the White Sox to sign him, and have La Russa bat him third. Or maybe the Astros will take a flyer on him, if Cano will play for a team that cheated. Would be a moral conflict for him, I’m sure. Seriously, though, Cano is a good litmus test for a major league front office. If your front office is interested, then you need to fire your GM. Unless it’s the Mariners, then they’d just be doing it to troll the Mets, and that’s fine.

hader watch, for some reason not only didn’t get save opp tonight, hasn’t pitched since being possibly overworked earlier (7 times in 11 days between the 17th and 27th); could be just MIL deciding 3 run lead vs CIN isn’t leverage enough to use him, but adding that to not being used once since the 27th speaks to at least what you were worrying about on gallegos lately.

might be too late by today, but 1-2 days ago it was quite doable, ed olivares is FINALLY being allowed to start (and not some shitty part of the order either), and he’s doing well. i seen him dropped a few weeks ago even in 16 teamers with 14 prospect spots since he went over his prospect elig limits. just started 4 of the last 5, back to back leadoff, and not only against lefties or righties. he might’ve just moved from somebody who should’ve been picked up in 16+’ers a few days ago to relevant for deeper 12’s right that quick. depth charts still shows him as lefty only side platooner, but last 2 days leading off vs righty and lefty. i figured this wouldn’t happen unless/until ma taylor was benched (but his D is very good obv). him and isbel started year down so i can’t tell who he’s playing over but he’s doing it.

who’s the o’neil prospect here? is “nolan” gorman? if pitching prospects only wanted grayson is the tippity top one of those (certainly over 2 guys who i either don’t know or aren’t pitchers). only o’neil i can think of is a hitter with almost 970 at bats.

ONeil Cruz, I believe is a 6’7 SS from Pittsburgh. Yes – I meant Gorman. Miranda already got scooped.

And then Grayson Rodriguez is in AAA for Baltimore.

Wondering which of them is going to have an impact ROS this year…

probably cruz/gorman/g-rod. but i have no clue on call up times. BAL and PIT specifically have gone out of their way to not bring them up (o.cruz was even up last year at the end, not yet now, g.rod back to back minor league pitcher of the year for BAL and top SP prospect entirely, some teams would’ve had him up 2 years ago). if pitcher needy specifically and want to stash somebody the lone pitcher makes sense.

I’m really beginning to regret all the starting pitchers I let go in the offseason – Gausman, Cease, Bassitt, Darvish, Webb – wish I would have kept some of them instead of Woodruff and Urias. At least so far this season. Also kept R Iglesias and he’s been mostly lights out so far but I am worried Maddon is going to use him so often his arm falls off like Aroldis Chapman in 2016.

Grey,
Who do you want in a roto QS league ROS – Robbie Ray or Verlander? Not liking Ray’s first 5 starts – of course I’m comparing to when I had him last season. Velocity on Ray’s FB is creeping up a tick, but his Statcast and other peripherals aren’t that good. I have two deals I’m looking at to acquire either of these SP.

i’d check with itch on gorman vs miranda if both up, unless like 2.5 weeks in AAA changes much miranda not below gorman on pretty recent top 100 list. obviously if say gorman’s just playing more that could affect this but till you hear about dejong being sent down (edman to SS, gorman plays 2B most of the time etc) i doubt that occurs. but i also didn’t think miranda’d be playing back to back days one of which against a righty (yesterday was the righty) and so far he’s started back to back days and not in shitty part of the lineup either.

Hey Grey!

I’m in a H2H Points league (which also values QS).

Which pitcher(s) should I pick up and which players should I drop?
P.S. I think I currently have a good pitching staff, so I’m mostly interested in which pitchers will help most as the season progresses. And feel free to make a few suggestions

Pickup possibilities: Skubal, McKenzie, Dunning, Lynch, Asherby, E Hernandez, J Junis

Drop Possibilities: Bruce Zimmerman, Mahle, Stroman, Lodolo, Franmil Reyes, Torkelson (my points league penalizes Ks), and C Santana (though he’s normally a points league beast and has started to pick it up)

Starling Marte has been hitting 7th. No bueno. Canha who has a .465 babip has been hitting 2nd. I hope the regression fairies show up soon for Canha or Marte is not going to deliver what we all need from him. Surprisingly Marte has 18 rbi. If we could just have Marte steal some bases that would be great.

i mean, if it was ok to have a race look like cartoon characters for decades across multiple sports why not make fun of what really happened with the race that DID the subjugating? we got all sorts of tropes to use: bent cops, politicians for the whites, for blacks gangbangers whatever else. lots to make fun of.

Seiya and O’Neil for Tucker is obviously a instant yes right, like I don’t think O’Neil does anything and I’m trying to trade him to people who I know are holding him in other leagues. I have JD Martinez, Ozuna, Seiya as starters with Renfroe, Santander, Grichuck and Vaughn as Util/bench guys. Ideally I have Urias to move to 2B and I can slot Kettle Marte into the OF as well. I don’t think he’ll say yeah to Seiya but I’m trying to capitalize his hot start as well.

Thinking about giving up on Jesus (Sanchez, not the other one).

Drop and replace with any of Robles, Luplow, Odubel, Drury, Demeritte, Peralta, McCutchen, Pinder…?

Or hold for one more week (he faces five righties this week).

Thank you.

1) Tork (1B,3B) or Miranda (3B only)? Util / bench bat.

2) Pick one (for 3B). Bohm, Kim, or Miranda?

3) How much fear that India’s injuries be be persistent throughout much of the season? He was just dropped, and I plan to use a sizable FA bid.

considering what bohm’s already been doing for weeks now (and got job back over stott) this one surprised me. india just wasn’t healthy the first time he was brought back, unless he comes back too early next time and this happens a 3rd time with same injury i’d not worry. i doubt CIN f’s that up again (although never say never on these badly run teams)

Grey,
U know I have Profar in my dynasty/keeper league. He can play 1B/2B/OF,

Here are the other players I have at those position along with Profar:

1B: Choi (On IL), Freeman, Vlad Jr.,
2B: Betts (At least for this season), Espinal, Nicky “Two Strikes”
OF: Alvarez, Betts, Mullins, Ohtani, Reynolds, Robert, J-Rod, Trout, Tucker

Now with that being said, is it time to drop Profar, if not him then who? I like Nicky “Two Strikes”

k-rob’s been like a top 3+ RP even just ratios/K/9 independent of saves he has or will get. helsley’s an obv upwards moving 7th or 8th inning guy that might get saves with possibly good ratios, but k-rob’s got quite a larger sample of us knowing he’s always been good when healthy, and is. also not much chance of k-rob losing his closer job if we only cared about saves.

Devers/T. O’Neil or K. Tucker/Austin Riley in a standard roto redraft?

My OF is loaded with Springer, Yordan, O’Neil, Teoscar, Judge. I will have Ward and J-Rod on bench when Teoscar returns.

I’m concerned about O’Neil. His Statcast is mostly blue except for barrels and speed.

Comparing Devers to Riley – Riley’s breakout last year apparently real and doesn’t look like he’s going to regress as a lot of ‘perts thought. His Statcast is even better this year. Hitting higher up in Braves lineup than last year so there should be more runs and lots of at-bats. He might put up better counting stats than Devers with same average. Devers hitting 48% ground balls and has a 6 degree launch angle.

Need your sage advise Grey Matter.
