Yesterday, I was watching the Twins game and I fell asleep and had a dream that Razzball’s Twitter account got one of those blue check marks.  I’m not sure what this says about my fantasies, but it says something about Tyler Duffey and the Twins.  They lack a certain je ne sais Michelle Kwan.  The Twins seem to do this on purpose.  Very workmanlike.  Like a Minnesota woman who would handily beat me in an arm wrestling match.  Pun noted.  I’ve never been to Minnesota, but I picture the women looking like Jesse Ventura when he used to wear feathers in his hair and leotards.  As with just about every Twins pitcher since Radke, minus Liriano and Johan, Duffey is yet another Twins hurler that has solid control and okay, not great strikeouts.  Yesterday, he went 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 7 Ks vs. the Tigers, and had a 2.53 ERA in Triple-A with a 7 K/9.  I don’t see any huge upside here and is better in real life, which apparently the Twins play in.  The Stream-o-Nator hates his next start, but I would start him if I needed to gamble.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Glen Perkins – Targeting a Friday return.  Coincidentally, I’m targeting Friday as the day I try on my newest merkins.

Eduardo Escobar – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer.  And moved all the way up to the seven hole in the lineup!  Yeah, cause Mauer has to be locked into the three hole because he impregnates leotarded, Minnesota women with sly glances.   “I was on my John Deere, minding my own business, when the missus ran out, with her flowing Ventura locks, and jumped on my gear shift.  Turned out Mauer looked at her.”

Kyle Lobstein – 1 1/3 IP, 6 ER.  As The B-52’s would say, “Rock Lobstein!”

Matt Duffy – Was called up by the Astros.  If he can have the kind of success with the Astros that he had with the Giants…Wait, that’s not right.  Oh, this is a different Matt Duffy.  Doesn’t he know you’re supposed to add an H to your name if you have the same one as a current major leaguer?  *looks at his minor league numbers*  Well, hello there! *looks at his age*  What took you so long?  *looks at my dog painting a portrait with his tail*  What were we talking about?  Oh, yeah, Mhatt Duffy.  Meh, nothing to see here unless he plays and gets hot.

Carlos Gomez – Due to intercostal discomfort, he was out of the lineup yesterday.  The Astros said it’s mild and he’s just out for this Rangers series.  Usually intercostal injuries knock players out for weeks at a time, and Gomez hasn’t been good up until now, so, if your plan was for Gomez to win you your H2H playoffs, you need to make other plans while God laughs.

Scott Kazmir – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.63.  Okay, but in April of next year he’s definitely going to regress!

Jose Altuve – 2-for-5 and his 12th homer.  12 is also the age he stopped growing.

Prince Fielder – 2-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and a homer.  Also, in this game, Mitch Moreland (2-for-4, 2 RBIs) homered.  Guess who has more homers?  Too late!  Fielder has 19 and Moreland has 20.

Cole Hamels – 7 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.76 and 4.04 on the Rangers.  I sure am glad I claimed this schmohawk.  What would I ever do without him?  Stream better pitchers.  Shut up, Random Italicized Voice.

Taijuan Walker – 7 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks.  Coming into this game, he had a 4.86 ERA at home, a 4.58 ERA on the road and a 7.45 ERA in September.  So, you can kick yourself for not starting him, but it would’ve taken big eggs in the basket to do it.

Mark Trumbo – 2-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI, which comes after an 0-for-9.  I guess what I’m saying is he faked acting like his bat went cold just so you could bench him in your weekly leagues.

Seth Smith – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 11th homer.  Thuper!

Joe Panik – Bochy said he’d be surprised if Panik played again this year.  That should bring a certain calmness to the Giants, ya know, no Panik.

Hunter Pence – Could be shut down for the year.  For now, the Gangly Manbird will continue to rest in a bed of twigs and his own saliva.

Angel Pagan – 2-for-4, 1 run, after stealing three bases on Sunday, and hitting over .300 in the last week.  Hot schmotato alert!

Ramon Cabrera – 4-for-4, 1 run, and homered on Saturday, his 1st.  That cheer you hear is the guy in the NL-Only league with two catchers.

Billy Hamilton – Re-aggravated his shoulder injury.  Aggravation is a good word.  Aggro would also work.  PO’d could also sum it up.  And I don’t mean I’m Post Office’d or Purchase Ordered.

Michael Cuddyer – 0-for-4 as he returned to the lineup after missing two weeks.  He should be a solid pick up for– Damn, he’s hurt again, isn’t he?

Logan Verrett – 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 3 Ks.  He’s a middle reliever that’s filled in for Harvey.  Only reasonable explanation why he’s looked good in two starts is no one has the book on him yet.  Just wait until James Patterson’s team of assistants write a book on him, then it’s over.

Yoenis Cespedes – 1-for-3 and his 35th homer.  This is the kind of dream you don’t wake up from.  But you don’t sleep if you come from where I come from, says Dr. Dre’s ghostwriter.

Travis d’Arnaud – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer.  I can’t wait to see d’Arnaud as the new boss of Celebrity Apprentice!

Jeurys Familia – 1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 1.63 and his 41st save.  SAGNOF and yadda3, but he’s been the best closer in all of baseball this year.  Best waiver wire pickup?  Hard to argue with it.

Yonder Alonso – Done for the year.  Shame to see that happen to a guy that was having a career year.  Did I say career year?  I mean just year.  He was having a year.

Wil Myers – 2-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 7th homer.  Please don’t tempt me for next year.  Thank you.

James Shields – 7 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.80.  He does realize he should also be doing this in Petco, right?  I mean, someone explained this to him, right?

Kevin Gausman – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks vs. the Red Sox.  I started Gausman in a few weekly leagues, due to the allure of the Double Down, praying he’d get past the first start yesterday and get to his 2nd start vs. the Rays without giving me a heart attack.  Not to be a sayer of doom, but why do I now worry about his next start?

Eduardo Rodriguez – 5 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 9 Ks.  Not to be a broken record about all young pitchers, but can we just shut them all down?  Not to be a broken record about all young pitchers, but– Sorry.

Corey Kluber – Will start on Thursday vs. the Royals.  I’m not one to put my nose where it doesn’t belong, but Friday is home vs. the White Sox.  You’ve been out for two weeks, you can’t wait an extra day?

Carlos Carrasco – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.62.  I love me some Carrasco, but, honestly, I have no idea what we’re going to get from start to start.  It’s like a roulette wheel with no numbers and only red and black.  Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not.  I guess that could also just be a coin flip.

Jason Kipnis – 1-for-5 and his 8th homer, which was his 2nd homer in ten weeks.  “I think it’s just mucus…No, there’s fog on the mirror under his nose!”

Francisco Lindor – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 1 RBI and his 8th steal.  All he does is make happy.  Big, giant sacks of happy.

Alex Gordon – 4-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 12th homer.  I just dropped him in one shallow league because I just couldn’t handle the on-again, off-again playing time he was getting as they nurse him back to 100% health.  *smacking arm veins*  I need stats right now, man!

Giancarlo Stanton – Could return this week.  Oh.  I mean, huh?  Wasn’t he declared out for the year?  From my mouth to Giancarlo’s ears, please don’t let him come back and re-injure his hands.  Like Schindler’s List was to life, your hands are to my life.

Erasmo Ramirez – 7 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 6 Ks vs. the Yankees.  In retrospect, it sure seems like a good start.  Be a great pick right now for Benjamin Button.  The Stream-o-Nator is iffy on Erasmo’s next start, and I don’t trust him at all.

CC Sabathia – 6 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA down to 4.93, which was also his weight when he was still a good pitcher.  You know what Bartolo calls dieters?  Quitters.  Which are also what his socks are if you were to try them on.

Jose Abreu – 3-for-6, 4 RBIs and his 28th homer.  Two more home runs and I won’t find any fault with your season.  And, if I hear anyone saying something bad about you, I’ll even defend you.  Pretty lightweight arguing with mostly just hemming and hawing, but I will still defend you.

Melky Cabrera – 4-for-8, 1 run, 1 RBI.  The Melk man delivers!  And he is your real father, not that man burping on the couch.

David Robertson – 1 IP, 2 ER.  To the owner of Robertson and Boxberger yesterday (2/3 IP, 4 ER), I’m just going to put on Third Eye Blind’s song, Jumper, and I want you to really listen to the words.

Trayce Thompson – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, and his 2nd homer in the past four games.  Trayce feels like a name from the year 2050, when children will get to choose their sex.  Any hoo!  He platoons, so it’s hard to recommend him.

Jake Smolinski – 1-for-6 and his 4th homer.  Check out this Smolinski!

Brett Lawrie – 2-for-6, 2 runs and his 16th homer.  I talk a lot about this (you try to write 3000 words a day and keep it all fresh), but it would be an interesting experiment to see where Lawrie gets drafted next year if he has 19 homers vs. 20 homers.  Not sure who to test that theory on.  Maybe find someone to lock in a basement for the next six months.  Not the last six months, that’s all of you.

Josh Reddick – 1-for-5, 2 runs and his 17th homer.  Reddick seems to be a rising schmotato.  Just, ya know, keep it wrapped.

Sonny Gray – 3 IP, 7 ER.  The Regression Fairies have a red carpet party for the Emmys where they critique the outfits, they hear Macho Man and they don’t think of Randy Savage but of The Village People, and they will destroy your ratios at the worst possible moment.

Clayton Kershaw – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks.  His ERA in the 2nd half of the year is under zero.  Thereabouts.

Corey Seager – 2-for-3, 1 run, hitting .432.  Yeah, you’re gonna have to reach just a little to draft him next year.

Cesar Hernandez – Out for the year with a dislocated thumb.  He tried to use a wax thumb he made at a carnival, but he couldn’t make it work.

Aaron Nola – 5 IP, 6 ER.  Please shut down Nola before we need a celebrity telethon.

Cody Asche – 1-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 9th homer.  Member when I called him a sleeper in 2014?  I don’t.  You must be remembering it wrong.  *slowly tiptoes out of the room, re-enters and rips Asche poster off wall labeled “2014 Sleepers”*

Ryan Howard – 1-for-3 and his 23rd homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  Hot schmotato alert!

Jordan Zimmermann – 6 IP, 6 ER vs. the Phils.  Is this karmic retribution for something?  I’m sorry I threw that fake puke over the side of the theater balcony.  I’ll never do it again!

Jayson Werth – 2-for-6, 5 RBIs and his 8th and 9th homers.  Hey, I don’t like him either, but it’s silly to not own him at this point.  Fo’reallies.

Anthony Rendon – 4-for-6 and his 5th homer, which comes after a solid weekend (6-for-12).  I.e., it’s the least he can do after I drafted him in the 4th round.  Emphasis on least.

Bryce Harper – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 37th homer as he returned to the lineup after colliding with Derek Dietrich.  Harper said, “Dietrich should not quit his day job.  He’ll never make it as a wall.”

Ryan Zimmerman – Still feeling pain in his oblique when he coughs.  Damn, he should’ve never reworked his swing to include coughing.

  5. Manley Ramirez says:

    So you’re defending Abreu but bashing Adam Jones.

    Last year: 281/311/469, 29HR in 682 PA
    This year: 275/316/491 27HR in 548 PA

    His pace is clearly better than last year and it’s not his fault the runs/rbi are lower. I didn’t draft Jones anywhere because I expected further regression due to being on wrong side of the aging curve and poor k/b%, but there really hasn’t been any regression other than less playing time do to injury.

    All you suckers that did draft him actually lucked out and have no right to complain.

    Great comments Grey

    Looks like i had big eggs starting TJ… ( you put a smile on my face)
    i started Shields as well,, and got right !
    Trumbo and Myers as Util ;) Wil was my last keeper from last season,,, !pay me now!
    and Alty#12… if he stopped growing at 12 then hopefully he ‘ll keep stealing

    and ,,, glad i traded Sonny days before he became Gray :)

    started the semi-final with 2wins 1sv 1hold, 2HRs 9RBis .344avg!! NICE

    let’s hope Sano will mambo#5
    May Spring-her begin to hit again…
    and i’d start Happ @Cubs tonight :)

Pomeranz has been better than May lately, but no holds for Pom. Maybin could also be dropped but he finally is getting at bats and certainly could also be needed for steals. could also drop hoover, as his ratios are the worst out of these guys.

    THIS WEEK LIKELY DETERMINES WINNER:
    our week starts tuesday TONIGHT, and it’s an NL 5×5 that obviously very deep.
    First the easy one- does Heston get 2 starts Tues to Monday?

    I’m hanging on to first by a thread and have Pena Grandal Grishuk Stanton all KINDA hurt, (thats the worst part….the “Kinda'”) and IF THEY DONT PLAY and I start them im in big trouble!!!
    I especially need HR R Rbi AVE in that order.

    First which catcher IS BENCHED out of Pena Garneau and Grandal?
    Next
    IF I START STANTON I HAVE TO SIT ( salary cap) A. Russell, Polanco or Desmond so at this point I think i have to sit him and lose potential 2-3 games of him this week AGREE?

    If so, I get to start one of Jace Peterson, Garneau, Mercer, Grichuk ( hey every R/Rbi counts)
    From the 4 above who gets the week AB’s for me starting tonight?

    Fragu, Pagan, or Meyers and is it time I lose one of those 2 pitchers for a bench spot on offense?

    Yep ’tis I, he who has both Box and Robertson. Boy Mrs. Smurf had a rough time cleaning up them shroom residue this morning. I was sniffin’ them good.

    After the Carrasco start I was feeling good. Felt even better when Colome was in line for the W. An hour later I checked in… yowza the ERA and WHIP exploded.

    Also streamed Almonte, literally the only Indian not to have any counting stat. Every other Indian had at least one hit and one R or RBI.

    In a tight race for the title. Past smurf implosions flashing before my eyes.

        On the serious side though, my team really isn’t very good. I’ve had to make already 200 roster moves and literally had to manage day to day to try to get favorable daily matchups. No truly dominant teams in my team, which helps.

    1. Enormous need for as many QS as possible. Please pick 3 of the following for QS this week:

    – Holland v. HOU + now slated for a SEA rematch on Sunday (SON still loves both)
    – Corbin @ SF
    – Estrada @ ATL
    – Rodon @ CLE (6 straight QS, including v. CLE)
    – Medlen @ Cle, @ DET
    – Peavy v. CIN
    – Rasiel @ MIL
    – Chen or Gausman @ TB
    – Dickey v. BOS

    2. Need R, OBP, OPS, and ideally some HR. For today, please pick 3 of these OFs:

    – Marte v. Hammel + Lester (assuming he’ll be starting at least 1)
    – Fowler v. Cole + Happ (typically nice R and OBP, but terrible career numbers in ~12 AB per SP)
    – Werth v. Buchanan
    – Peralta v. Ross (438/899 obp/ops in 16 career ABs)

    3. Have to start Kluber Thursday, right? Reserving a yoga studio for my prayer circle already…

    Thanks!

    Whoops. On #2, Springer v. Holland is also an option.

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Last update – Marte NOT in Game 1 of the double header. Who knows re: Game 2.

        @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: [I wish I could edit old posts haha] – Rotowire says Marte is expected for Game 2 v Lester, and available off the bench for Game 1.

    Do you like/truat any of these streamers?
    Today – Brett Anderson home vs Col, SON $ 12.5
    Heston home vs Cinn, $7
    Tomorrow – Peavy home vs Cinn, $15.7
    Wood home vs Col, $14.1.
    H2h playoffs, I get 5 moves and losses count. There aren’t a ton of good match ups later in the week based on current free agents. Guy Im playing has Kershaw and Cole who each have 2 starts. Should I jump on 2 or 3 of these guys and who?

      @Funny Name: They’re all okay… Heston, Anderson, Peavy, Wood

  28. Mr. Rickey says:

    Who is my best playoff util guy out of these options:
    Didi
    Corey Seager
    Khris Davis
    Cron
    Pagan
    Jung Ho

    12 team H2H league – have Didi rostered but he’s been blah the last few days.

    9×9 weekly H2H that runs Tue.-Mon. On the pitching side, W, L and QS count. For hitters, OPS, BB and K are the major wrinkles.

    1) Pick 2 SP to add to my 2-start Lester and 1-start Greinke (my opponent is going to have 4 starts total, all of which should be strong):
    Garcia – @Mil, vCin (SON -0.1, 16.5)
    Salazar – vKC (19.8)
    Happ – CHC, @LAD (4.8, ??? – SON has him @Col but it seems he’d get @LAD this weekend instead)
    B. Anderson – vCol, vPit (11.0, 3.5)

    2) Pick 2 OF out of K. Davis (HT 19.7), Calhoun (17.1) and Piscotty (14.7). All have 7 games.

    3) Pick 3 MI out of Gyorko (5G, HT 13.5), Cano (5G, 8.3), Kang (8G, 9.1), Yuni (7G, 7.4), E. Escobar (6G, 2.7) and Seager (6G, -11.6 and Mattingly says he’ll be benched for Rollins because *dies of aneurysm*)

    hey grey long season still good stuff

    keep waiting to hear about Nola shut down, keeping him for Atlanta start though if not.

    its playoff time! Justin Turner (COL, PIT this week) has been bad in the second half. Should I drop him for hot shmeatato Pagan (CIN, ARI) in a 8 offensive category OPS league that has OPS inputs (XBH, BB) as their own cats? (aka stolen bases are only 1 of 8, less important than standard)? thanks

    • dom says:

    Would you rather carry Peavy for at least the next couple outings or Stroman? Stroman’s rotation spot seems unclear and the next start might be against the Red Sox who seem a little more potent lately. Peavy has the Reds at home and then maybe SD on the road.

  41. Grey, would you rather have Liriano or AJ Burnett ROS?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Enrique: Neither? Burnett

      • @Grey: Is Smyly better than Bernett? Or should I just use the SoN for that spot?

    Hey Grey/Razzball nation-

    First off, thanks for all the help this year. I ended the regular season in first in my H2H 12 teamer, and am battling for 3rd in my 17 team dynasty league. The daiquiri fund is calling my name after this year.

    First week of my H2H playoffs, and I’m playing against the only guy who has given me a hard time this year. Would you start DeShields (vs. McHugh) over any of these guys:

    Russell (@ Cole, @ Happ), Wong (@ Pena), Hosmer/Cain (@ Tomlin), or Santana/Bradley (vs Medlen).

    Hitter-tron likes everyone but Russell, but I’m wondering if the double header is worth keeping Russell in the line up for.

    Thanks as always, and good luck to everyone down the stretch!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Over Bradley

      • NickfromtheRoc says:

    In my 12T H2H semifinals (Thanks for the assist Grey!) and need to drop one of the following to stream pitchers:

    Khris Davis
    Billy Burns
    Wil Myers

    Steals should be close which is why im not just cutting Burns even though hes pretty banged up right now. Was gonna drop Myers but of course he hits a bomb last night and is in Coors this weekend!

    Drop Pujols at this point with this foot issue? He’s been dog droppings since the issue came up, and I’m not sure the next 2 weeks all of a sudden he awakens. Abreu Starts, Chris Davis with backup eligibility, which would leave my OF with Peralta/Piscotty/Davis, Cargo and Stanton (soon pleeease?)

    I have to move someone to reinstate Stanton this weekend, and I the other guys are backing up SS and 2B…

    Lost Tulo, called up Correa, picked up Yunel… IF I was certain that Correa was going to play every single day, I’d be OK with cutting Yunel… (Davis has 3B eligibility, so he provides a backup to Kang on Kang days off as well)

    Thoughts?

                    @Grey: you are the teacher. You should beat me.

                    I think something we need to drive home this off season is getting an ace without paying for an ace concept. I know you say it every year but I think it falls on deaf ears. Just a strategy post dedicated to that. I think that’s the big gamble that must work.

                    This was the first year I missed on an ace and it’s killing me in there. My strategy was bad….maybe all or nothing, but down right bad. And pitching is usually my strong suit.

                      Grey says:
                      (link)

                      Comes down to needing to draft the right 2nd tier guys that are actually aces, Cole/Archer, and spotting aces emerging in April… There’s an element of luck to it… Could’ve had Carrasco and Samardzija and been in serious trouble… But the thing is you could have Kluber and Lester and be in the same trouble… As Rudy’s RCL team shows…

                    • J-FOH says:

                      exactly my point! Arrieta and deGrom would of been ideal. I think your big hit this year was Archer, you gave him the most run of any site I saw. I was weary because he screwed me last year and every time I saw him it felt like I was watching a really good reliever in the making. Then he develops that 3rd pitch and booya, Grey hits gold!

                      I cant deal with the I got Sale and took Archer and Arrieta but I’m weak on hitting comments. No guys, you take the hitter where you would draft Sale and then grab the upside 2’s. Then the guy that took Sale will most likely looking at a bat while you scoop up the good arms.

                      Me taking Shields and thinking San Diego could make him into a 2, then Richards being a 2, and Ryu a high 3 and Smyly a high 3 didn’t work so well. I got a big bowl of humble pie ala nadir bupkis mode

                      Nick got Sky, Tehol, Ralph, Smokey and myself among others together for a league. Just to be in that draft room made it worth it. The full access to the tour stories was priceless. I think we have a book there…or maybe a very low budget indy flick.

    Cole’s luck is unbelievable. An error leads to 1 run, and Sorias idiocy leads to a pair. I fail to see how Cole “earned” those 2 runs due to Joakim’s incompetence, but such are the official scoring rules in baseball. Maybe next time Clint should consider using Watson with 2nd and 3rd, 1 out in the 7th in a 2 run game.

    Now that the regression fairies have finally found Gray, is he droppable in a 12 teamer where I need the innings? Or is he streamer worthy? Seems like at this point in the season you get rid of name and go for need. Thanks as always grey!

      Depends on his matchups the rest of the year

    “Don, why do you continue to hit Seager 6th, with guys like Ruggiano and AJ Ellis ahead of him, even though he’s hitting over .400?”

    “You answered your own question. He’s hitting .400 from down there – a good manager doesn’t mess with something that’s working.”

    “Don, sorry to keep coming back to this, but Corey is arguably the best hitter in the lineup these days. Has there been conversation about moving him up in the lineup?”

    “I don’t want to put too much pressure on the kid. Which is why I’m going bench him when Jimmy comes back.”

      or neither one

    12 team league but with deep benches pretty much making it a 14 teamer. with E5’s finger F’d up and Valencia somewhat banged up i likely need a 1b and 3B for short term. this roster with BB’s, K’s, slugging and OPS added for hitters. dynasty as well.
    beef welington
    E5
    Pedroia
    Suarez
    Valencia
    LF upton
    CF cain
    RF polanco
    util bradley
    BN k.davis/calhoun/DIDI/harrison
    DL mesoraco/soler/franco
    NA zimmer/t.anderson/tapia
    Can drop valencia of course. might have to drop one of bradley/suarez/DIDI for 2nd spot.
    Options for 1B , 3B: canha/cron/k.johnson/boy riding the boat at MIL/shaw/smoak. Might be a decent idea to have 2 guys that qualify at 1B as Harrison could cover 3rd if one of the new guys have an off day.

    • Grey

      Lose Valencia and Bradley for Cron and Canha

      • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
        (link)

        @Grey: need at least one of the adds to qualify at 3B, as harrison just doesn’t play enough since back off DL to guarantee a starter there. so cron i’ll assume is first, but that leaves k.johnson/boy saved off the boat and these others for 3B, aramis, blanco, yunel (but not for a few days, he’s coming off waivers)

        • Grey
