Yesterday, Tyler Glasnow like an Afrikaan miner threw a gem — 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 0.53.  Hey, I wrote a Tyler Glasnow sleeper this year, so I’m down with TG-AF — that’s Tyler Glasnow as f**k!  Yes, I’d love to mock the Pirates for trading him away.  However, I’m not sure how much we can’t discount how Ray Searage preaches contact and is a wet blanket on Ks-slash-some pitchers, i.e., Glasnow may never have been this pitcher on the Pirates.  Then throw-in Meadows into the trade, though?  I mean, what were the Pirates thinking?  “Argh, we’re dumb.”  Pirates should be cursing themselves, which would sound like, “Plankety plank plank!”  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Austin Meadows – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .341.  Whenever I see his name, I visualize myself skipping through a grass meadow like in The Sound of Music, but there’s thousands of Audrey and Jayne Meadows.  Am I sick in the head for Cougars?

Tommy Pham – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 1st and 2nd homers, hitting .286.  Still not a fan of Pham, but when he’s going well, it’s harder to justify that.  Don’t worry, there will either be an injury or a three-month spell when he struggles.  Or one possibility is I just take this L like I did for years on Josh Donaldson until he wasn’t good.

Reynaldo Lopez – 4 1/3 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 12.15.  Taking off the kid gloves, so you might want to move on if you don’t want to read me get real.  Okay, ready?  Good.  If you own Reynaldo Lopez, you should be ashamed of yourself.  I told everyone not to draft him.  He’s had one pee-poor start after another.  You can close your eyes real hard and wish upon a star that Lopez is going to be good, but, guess what, you’re not a freakin’ genie!  Wise up!

Eloy Jimenez – 1-for-4, hitting .279.  Without looking it up, I’m gonna guess Eloy Jimenez’s average exit velocity this year is 7 MPH.  Mollywhop, you bastard!

Tim Anderson – 2-for-4, and his 4th steal.  How do you know it’s still early in the season?  Tim Anderson is hitting .514.

Dereck Rodriguez – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.15.  Damn, I wanted to watch Margevicius and D-Rod, two guys I own in different leagues, but I missed this entire game because I was watching the Rays/White Sox.  Not because I wanted to, but I felt compelled because no one else was watching it.  It’s paid attendance was:  *counts players and umpires*

Kevin Pillar – 1-for-4 and his 2nd homer.  Pillar is the stereotypical great deep league player, and unownable in shallow leagues.  We should have a glossary term for this type of player.  Please suggest in the comments.

Nick Margevicius – 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 1.69.  Fun fact!  Margevicius is my mom’s Sex Pistols cosplay name.  As for Nick, he seems to be a great candidate to use the Streamonator in mixed leagues.

Nick Pivetta – 3 2/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 9.45.  Someone please stop me from writing a Nick Pivetta 2020 sleeper post.  Pivetta is such a Pineda.  His peripherals can look great, but he is not good.  Such a KaBoB.  As The Who once sang, “When I say I love pitchers who have underperformed their peripherals you say Pivetta! Pivetta Pivetta regret.”

Jeremy Hellickson – 6 IP, 0 R, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.25.  The Nats got out to an early lead and Hellickson cruised out to the Ivictory Coast for a free night at the W.  Going forward, I would use the Streamonator for him.

Edwin Jackson – Signed a minor league deal with the A’s.  Confession:  I write “Edwin Jackson – Signed a minor league deal with” in every roundup, then delete it the few times it doesn’t apply.

Chad Pinder – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 3rd homer, hitting .318.  Be awesome if the A’s always gave Pinder the silent treatment after a home run, so he was a left hanging Chad.  Or maybe awesome is too strong.  Either way, Pinder is a hot schmotato, but I’d start anyone against the O’s pitching.

Jurickson Profar – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer.  Him or anyone on your waivers?  I Profar Jurickson.

Khris Davis – 3-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 6th and 7th homer, hitting .254.  How sweet of him to do that so the Orioles’ fans listening on the radio can imagine it was Chris Davis.

Frankie Montas – 6 Ip, 3 ER, 4 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.18.  He was no-hitting the O’s through five innings and for a moment I thought the Orioles were empathizing with Chris Davis a little too much.  I AM CHRISDAVISPARTACUS!  As for Montas, I don’t have much interest in him.

Matt Chapman – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .305.  Weird that the Athletics are down to one Matt.  You’d think the A’s would understand the importance of a 2nd Matt so you can wipe yourself clean at the back door.

Trey Mancini – 1-for-4 and his 6th homer.  Look at Trey trying to earn the Boom Boom nickname.

Rio Ruiz – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer.  The river runs through it!

Yu Darvish – 5 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 7.50.  Well, he didn’t walk anyone!  Insert emoji shrugging as it timbers off the side of a building.

Jason Heyward – 3-for-4 and his 4th homer, hitting .371.  I’m in on Heyward turning his career around, as in I picked him up in a few leagues.  How confident am I that I will still own him in two weeks?  About 2% confidence, and I might be overestimating myself.

Francisco Cervelli – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 1st homer.  It makes sense he’s hitting third; he is the Pirates’ best hitter.  This is not a compliment for Cervelli.

Starling Marte – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and a slam (1) and legs (3), hitting .225.  I had a running tally last year that no Pirates hitter would reach 20 homers, and I just missed being right.  This year I’m much more confident in that.  I’m not sure anyone’s getting to 17.  Bell has the best chance.

Jordan Lyles – 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 0.82.  Jordan made the Cubs’ hitting look like Michael Jordan.  (K. Bryant in the box score is obviously Kobe Bryant, at least that’s how he is hitting.) As for Lyles for fantasy, I just looked at his peripherals and shuddered.

Ian Kennedy – 2 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 1.50, as he entered the 6th inning in a game the Royals were losing.  Minister, wearing a SAGNOF t-shirt, to congregation, “Can I get a Dick Lovelady?!”  Though, Brad Boxberger (1 IP, 1 ER) was used in a tie game in the 9th like a closer would.  Push comes to shove, Boxberger is my bet for the Royals closer, but losing the game did him no favors.

Whit Merrifield – 1-for-4, 1 RBI, hitting .340.  He broke George Brett’s Royals’ hitting streak record (31 games) and, in true Royals’ fashion, Brett was congratulating Whit on TV as Merrifield was being picked off 1st base.

Jorge Soler – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .233.  This was his first hits since he homered four days ago, so…ler.

Yusei Kikuchi – 6 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.15.  I’m no scout, but I watched Kikuchi, and came away fairly unimpressed.  He relies so heavily on junk.  He threw like 40% curves yesterday, which, I guess, is okay, but he’s about as overpowering as a three-year-old arm wrestler.

Brandon Woodruff – 6 IP, 4 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 6.00.  More like Brandon Woodbarf.  And Trout didn’t even play!  The Brewers’ young pitchers are making the Angels seem like they’re powered by The Great Bambino rather than The Great Bourbino.

Robbie Ray – 5 IP, 1 ER, 3 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 3.52.  The path of Ray takes to greatness just can’t be via the walk.

Jose Leclerc – 1/3 IP, 1 ER and yanked from the game for Kyle Bird.  How birds do the Rangers have?  I thought they just had The Gangly Manbird, Hunter Pence (1-for-4 and his 1st homer).  Hopefully, the fact the Rangers sunk a bunch of money into Leclerc is enough for them to show a bit more loyalty, then one botched save.

Mitch Garver – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 3rd homer, and 3rd in two games.  Hot schmotato alert!

Jonathan Schoop – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 1 RBI, hitting .313, raising his average about hundred points in two games.  Damn, you didn’t get him off your team fast enough!

Tyler Mahle – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners (4 BBs), 7 Ks, ERA at 0.82.  His control yesterday was muy Mahle.  I did stream him, due to the Streamonator, and I’m fine with the outcome, and I dropped him already.

Raisel Iglesias – 1 IP, 0 ER, 3 Ks and the save as he notched The Kimbrel.  As for Kimbrel, he dumped some koi in his bathtub and went fishing, afraid if he went out to a lake, he wouldn’t have cell reception.

Jose Iglesias – 1-for-2 and his 1st homer.  Also, if you have a category in your league for Web Gems, Iglesias notched a few of those.  Here is the Church, here is the steeple, now watch him throw out people.

Jesse Winker – 1-for-3 and his 2nd homer, hitting .125, but two games in a row with a homer, and, if he was dropped in your league, you might want to correct that.

Trevor Richards – 6 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 5 walks, 7 Ks, ERA at 2.00.  His change is so nasty!  His other pitches, well, um, stammer, are okay.

Jose Altuve – 2-for-4 and his 4th and 5th homer, third and 4th homers in the past three games, and, in yesterday’s game, it was the 1,501,829,010th time someone compared his height to Aaron Judge.

Carlos Correa – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer, hitting .316.  Let’s remove all sanctions on Correa!

Marcell Ozuna – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and a slam (3) and legs (2), hitting .262.  This is how you come back from a shoulder injury, Kris Bryant!  By the way, is it me or is Ozuna the first player to get faster as they get older?

Max Muncy – 1-for-4 and his 4th homer, hitting .256.  He was still in the minors this time last year.  Cust kayin’.

Joc Pederson – 2-for-4 and his 4th homer.  I like Joc, but Dave Row-bears (how I say it) will platoon him.

Collin McHugh – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 2.55.  Pretty impressed with how smoothly he went from the bullpen back to the rotation.  I liked him coming into this year, but he’s showing me a bit more.  *McHugh pulls up pants leg to show stirrups*  Not like that, silly!

James Paxton – 4 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 6.00.  The Big Maple’s ratios are like the Big Apple on New Year’s Eve.  Only can go down. (I hope.)

Luke Voit – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer.  You gonna let him talk to you that way, Pete Alonso?

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – Headed to Triple-A for at least two weeks.  As amped as I am to see Glad Vuerrero in the majors, he better wear a Drury jersey when he plays otherwise every pitcher is going to pitch around him.

Niko Goodrum – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer.  I own Bauer and Goodrum, so when Goodrum homered of Bauer, it was like f**king your stepsister, which tracks after you’re enjoying Goodrum.

Matthew Boyd – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.60.  You, “I wonder what that handsome devil, Grey Albright, thinks of Boyd.”  Me, “I gave you my Matthew Boyd fantasy after his first start.”  Donkey Teeth also just gave you his Matthew Boyd fantasy, and he’s chomping at the bit for him, but, with those teeth, that’s likely true of a lot of players.

Jose Ramirez – 0-for-4, hitting .154.  Too early for victory laps, but I told you Ramirez was overrated in the preseason, and he has done nothing different than what I was concerned about.  His fly ball rate is ruining him.  Also, the Indians have set an unofficial record of seven guys in lineup whose last name starts with B and ends with “ers” — Jake Bauers plus six guys with last name of Benchwarmers.

Trevor Bauer – 5 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 2.29.  The pitcherpocalypse continues to ravage the heartland of fantasy baseball teams.  By the by, there were so many ex-Pirates in this Indians/Tigers game they should’ve played the game in the Bay of Bengal.

Francisco Lindor – Ran in the outfield yesterday.  In related news, Yahoo felt this was sufficient to award Lindor with outfield eligibility.

    • How much bench/NA space do you have on your roster? I think there is a strong chance he doesnt get signed until June, after the draft, so he doesnt cost whoever signs him draft picks(s). If you can wait it out, go for it. If not, cut him loose.

  8. Dave D says:
    (link)

    Well, I’m smart enough to own Glasnow in 4 leagues and dumb enough to own Lopez in 3. The same could be said for owning Peralta in week 2 vs. 1 & 3. My pitching is all over the place. Pham is giving you the middle finger but Meadows is making you look brilliant. So far my punting of 1B and going with some combo of Mancini, Healy, Moreland is going pretty well and that spare part, Guzman, is collecting rust.

    And how about that D. Fletch SB last night? He’s hitting.303 while Ausmess’s leadoff man is at .174. He’s proving you can be foolish and still win in MLB. Now when will I cut bait with Rey-Lo?

    What are your thoughts on a Clevinger stash? Was thinking of offering: my Kluber and my C. Taylor for his Bieber, his Eloy and his Clevinger. Only Eloy and Bieber have contracts after this year. Pts keeper league

    Would you start Pablo Lopez today at Cin?

    • Malicious Phenoms says:
      (link)

      I’d hang onto Kluber, Clevinger could be the new Kershaw, backs are tricky for pitchers and no do not start Pablo in Cincy..

      • Twins Peaker says:
        (link)

        Would you do Bieber and Eloy for Kluber instead? Or is Bieber that far behind Kluber that makes it not even close?

        Bieber $1×2, Eloy $1×3, Kluber $38×1

      It’s a fair deal. Without know more about your league and keeper format I’ll say I’d probably take the Bieber/Eloy side, but I’m also not expecting much from Clevinger this year. Might try to rework it without him.

      I’m sitting Pablo.

      • Twins Peaker says:
        (link)

        Thanks. I’m thinking Eloy/Bieber for Kluber.

                    (link)

                    So just to put 2 and 2 together, because it’s not deep, Kluber is far greater than the sum of Bieber and Eloy.

                    Math is fun.

      If you cant keep Clevinger into next year, I dont see any reason to trade for him now…..he may be toast for this year, at the least.

      Without knowing the rest of the league, your roster, etc., I would lean toward keeping Kluber…

        I just commented above how I have my reservations on all of them as well, but SON seems to like Bundy and really like Shark for some reason.

        With the way the ball seems to be juiced this year, maybe the smart move is to not make one today then.

    FA availible German, Rodon, Newcomb

    Do I make any moves or hold? 100 transaction limit at 14 but plan on leveling out soon after i set these out. Thinking at least German but not sure who it is time to cut yet. Pivetta or Erod i am assuming? The k/9 skews my thought a bit. Picked Erod over Glasnow and so mad at myself!

    You were right so far about JRam; however, I’m fairly sure last year he got off to a similarly awful start.

    Grey!!!

    Fantastic write-up, have to pace myself lest I describe your reports as ‘fantastic’ too often lest people get the wrong idea (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink!). Really nice though, like Colombian chicks are wont to say ‘Ay, ique rico!, Grey!’

    a. More stank from my pitching staff, though it was tempered with Glasnow’s great effort. Also sonofabench’d Goodrum but that will never happen again because he’s moved from bench to MUST START!! My thinking was he’d do worse than Wong because he was facing Bauer. Well, that was proof positive that one Wong definitely does not make a right.

    b. Man, have made so many changes from my original roster I bet you can’t tell who I drafted and who I picked up off waivers. Actually, it’s easy to see who I drafted…they either suck, are partially injured or are on the IL. To wit…

    Garver (picked him up this morning dropping Barnhart who was leading my team in batting average. That fact is so sad, one couldn’t possibly make it up unless they were a closet masochist.)

    Rizzo (drafted, he’s not injured, he just sucks, there are at least 12 other better 1B)

    Wong (see what I mean yet, but haha, didn’t draft him!)

    Muncy (as bad as he’s been he’s still better than he was at this point last year and he started last year in the minors but he’s underwhelming while LAD is setting a record for HRs)

    Story (same old story, why isn’t he running, did he injure his legs when he hurt his shoulder last year at the end of the season?)

    Moreland (this is all your doing but at least he’s hitting, facing a RHP and off waivers)

    Goodrum (drafted but only as a bench bat, describes how bad the core’s been)

    Inciarte (not running like last year and underwhelming and drafted)

    Kiermaier (waivers, the best numbers of his career)

    Schebler (waivers, your boy, and hitting)

    Springer (drafted, okay reasonably good but one slump away from oblivion)

    Clint Frazier (waivers, just waiting for his numbers to collapse)

    Bench La Stella (yep, waivers, he leads the team in HRs), Shaw (drafted, pshaw and not hitting a lick)

    IL – TreaT and Dahl – someone kick me in the nuts to go with the pain I feel

    SP – Paxton (yep, drafted like a #1, pitching like a #2)

    Glasnow (drafted, well I had to get one pick right, right? Grey? Are you following?)

    Iglesias (drafted, well, he’s on the road to recovery, sucked a bit before last night)

    Ottavino (Drafted for ratios, been ok but not the lights out he was last year, different team)

    Margevicius (waivers, hope he remains electric, great K:BB ratio continuing from the minors, 7th round pick #198, who knew Lithuanians could do anything except commit suicide?)

    Kyle Bird (waivers, hey either LeClerc is done and the guy who did the dirty work for Texas for the extension has already been fired or he’s injured in either case Bird could stay as closer until LeClerc figures it out. Need OSB to tell me if my thinking is okay.)

    Jordan Hicks (waivers, pretty good but still couldn’t tame Yelich so not fantastic)

    Minter (waivers, not sure if he’s gonna be okay)

    Swarzak (waivers, he’s doing well)

    Jeffress (waivers, on my bench, I did a double switch of Dahl to the IL activating Jeffress. Doesn’t look so hot in his rehab stint….)

    c. Abbott and Costello quote of the day for April 11

    THE DYEING ROUTINE

    ABBOTT: You’d better take that suit over to my Uncle Herman’s, At the Kurt Dry Cleaning Plant.
    COSTELLO: Dry Cleaning Plant? What’s your Uncle Herman doing there?
    ABBOTT: Well this is Wednesday, He’s dyeing today.
    COSTELLO: That’s Terrible Abbott, I didn’t even know he was sick.
    ABBOTT: Oh, He isn’t sick, he’s dyeing.
    COSTELLO: He’s dying and he isn’t sick?
    ABBOTT: That’s right, if he was sick he couldn’t dye.
    COSTELLO: Why not?
    ABBOTT: Well it’s against the rules of the cleaning plant.
    COSTELLO: You mean they wouldn’t let him die if he’s sick.
    ABBOTT: That’s right. If a man is sick they wont let him into the place to dye.
    COSTELLO: What, do they leave him out in the alley?
    ABBOTT: Oh no no no! He cant dye in the alley.
    COSTELLO: He can’t?
    ABBOTT: No, if he wants to dye he has to go up seven floors.
    COSTELLO: He’s got to die on the seventh floor?
    ABBOTT: Well certainly.
    COSTELLO: Is there any elevator in the place?
    ABBOTT: No.
    COSTELLO: The nerve of the people!
    ABBOTT: What do you mean?
    COSTELLO: Making a poor man climb seven floors to die! Why don’t they send him home?
    ABBOTT: Because his wife wont let him dye in the house.
    COSTELLO: Wife don’t?
    ABBOTT: She don’t want him dyeing in the house.
    COSTELLO: She don’t?
    ABBOTT: No.
    COSTELLO: He might as well go crawl under a rock. Imagine a guy can’t even die in his own house.
    ABBOTT: No no, if there’s any dyeing to be done around the house, his wife does it.
    COSTELLO: You mean his wife has got to die too?
    ABBOTT: Certainly.
    COSTELLO: Abbott, what are you trying to do bump off the whole family?
    ABBOTT: Oh, keep quiet.
    COSTELLO: I’m going to bring Uncle Herman to my house to die.
    ABBOTT: Oh, he couldn’t dye at your house.
    COSTELLO: And why couldn’t he die at my house?
    ABBOTT: Because you have no dye.
    COSTELLO: You gotta have dye to die?
    ABBOTT: Costello would you pay attention! I’m trying to tell you that Uncle Herman has to dye so he could live.
    COSTELLO: Well naturally…..What was that?
    ABBOTT: I said my Uncle Herman has to dye to live. If he doesn’t dye he can’t eat.
    COSTELLO: You mean he eats after he dies?
    ABBOTT: Well certainly, he dyes for a while then he eats. Then he dyes again then he eats some more.
    COSTELLO: Must be the food that’s killing him!!! He must be eating at your Backstage joint.
    ABBOTT: No no no you idiot!! A man has to eat if he stands up all day dyeing.
    COSTELLO: You mean he has to stand up to die?
    ABBOTT: Naturally, did you ever hear of anybody lying down to dye?
    COSTELLO: All the people I ever knew. They use the standard way.
    ABBOTT: No no no, he can’t lie down on the job. He’s got to be through dyeing by six o’clock. If he dyes after six he gets time and a half.
    COSTELLO: You mean he gets paid for dying?
    ABBOTT: Oh sure, It’s piece work.
    COSTELLO: He dies a piece at a time?
    ABBOTT: Look you idiot, when I say Uncle Herman is dyeing, I don’t mean that he’s dying like a person dies when he dies. I mean he’s dyeing for a living and a person that dyes for a living is living even though that he’s dyeing!
    COSTELLO: When you say that Uncle Herman is dyeing, you don’t mean that he’s dying like a person dies when he dies. You mean he’s dyeing for a living and a person that dyes for a living is living even though that he’s dyeing!
    ABBOTT: Now you’ve got it.
    COSTELLO: I don’t even know what I’m talking about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            By the by, sorry for my late entry. Was like SUPER busy all morning, then we got home exhausted and I had to clean the fish, peel the potatoes, fry the fish and THEN wash up after lunch. Our daughter’s boyfriend announced that he’s coming over (he’s a seaman and 22 and she’s 18, so yeah that’s a match made in Heaven. Don’t get me started on his occupation, it’s all the bad karma I get and the Semien jokes.) to spend the night tonight. So everything had to be ‘spick and span’ clean, hence the reason why I could not enter my late entry of the Mariana Snailfish. Sorry, now with the late entry, the poor Mariana Snailfish didn’t get the groundswell of support that the Scrubmarine got.

    I was watching the Brewers game last night cause Woodruff and Shaw… needless to say early on I was crying into my pillow when Shaw got beaned and left the game and then Woodruff had that rough 3rd inning. Outside of that rough third which left me with nightmares of Lucchesi’s bad inning against the Giants, Woodruff kept them off the scoreboard.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Yeah, he wasn’t *that* bad… Kinda got singled to death in one inning

      • William Hung says:

        My shallow league staff is not working out this week after a beautiful W1 – dropped Stripling already and now debating whether or not to drop Woodruff.

        My current SPs are: Glasnow, Woodruff, Marquez, and Lucchesi. That stupid Clevinger injury. ARGH! I missed out on picking up McHugh yesterday.

        Couldn’t get McHugh yesterday so I’m wondering if I should supplement my current guys with someone like Mikolas or Marco Gonzales, or keep chasing K/9 upside with Caleb Smith or Max Fried? I saw in another comment you prefer Fried over Woodruff so maybe I’ll do that

                Dammit Fried isn’t scheduled to pitch until next week! :(

                I’ve been on Fangraphs looking at FB Velo, and looking at pitchers with high K/9 and low BB/9 – some small sample size observations:
                1. Matt Boyd is sexy – wish I knew my staff would suck/be hurt and I would’ve picked him up
                2. Woodruff & Peralty have similar sexy K/9 & BB/9
                3. Caleb Smith 12 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 – too bad his next start is v. Phillies

                What’s a good difference between K/9 and BB/9 you like to see before taking a flyer on a guy?

    Good Morning Grey,

    Not sure if I’ve missed someone else posting about a possible match up between Rosenthal and Davis. It had been two seasons since Rosenthal has retired a batter. Would all MLB feeds either switch over to the game, or do the PIP of the at bat? Rosenthal struck out Knapp for his first out , and he finally has a definable ERA and WHIP. However, his K was followed by 2 more BBs, and the streak begins again.

    NL-Only H2H (OBP)

    Would you rather try Tyler Austin or Daza? Austin seems to be the one with the long-term value and the Rockies are on the road for 6 games before heading back home.

    Thanks!

      Ottavino is droppable but I’d keep Barnes.

      Hold Eloy.

    • B the Esq. says:

      What options are available? Drop Ottavino or Eloy if Trout is on waivers…..

      Keep Barnes, the Sox situation is not settled. Zimmermann can be streamed, again, depending on what is on waivers and available, but your SPs are solid.

      Keepy Eloy over those options for now.

    outfielders available are eloy jiminez, shin soo choo, Kepler, jason heyward , clint frazier and trey mancini

    thanks

    Drop Pivetta for any of the following ROS or bench and hold him to see if he turns it around. He is currently my SP4 behind Verlander, Flaherty, Wheeler, and then Musgrove, T. Richards, Lucchesi, Eovaldi and M. Kelly.

    Holland, P. Lopez, Miley, Anibal, and Turnbull are currently available.

    Thanks in advance for your feedback.

    NL only with QS over wins. if the ONLY arguably decent SP out there is V2 (and SON loves him in a few days since @ MIA) is mahle droppable? he’s SON-hated @LAD next, but i KNOW that somebody will FOR SURE add mahle upon noticing it’s not just 1 but TWO whole good starts in a row. i added mahle like 2 days ago before his 2nd good start (both vs crap hittign teams) when i lost lester to being a pitcher not an athlete that had to run the bases (of course this isn’t CLOSE to as bad as avila and his near-kendrys injuring him self on a HR trot recently).

    I really wish you’d quit bringing up that 3 y/o – I’ve been lifting weights ever since & I’m pretty sure I could take him at this point.

    Also I f**ked your stepsister & it wasn’t half bad. I don’t see what the fuss is about.

    Anyhoo, every year Razzball commenters & you, Grey, provide at least one amazing player to add, and this year it was Glasnow. I was looking to replace Teheran at the beck of my rotation & holy crap were those early Glasnow comments on point. He struggled so badly in ST the dude who drafted him dropped him. That was also the dude I faced week 1, and bet $20 I’d beat him that week. I won mostly thanks to TG’s 2 W’s.

    So once again, thank you Razzball. I love you, man. <3

    Question regarding too many players on the DL. Currently have Trea, Dahl and Ohtani on the DL but only have 2 DL spots. The league is 10-team H2H with hits and walks instead of AVG or OBP.

    Would you drop either Dahl or Ohtani? Trying to win this week but don’t want to hurt my team for the rest of the season.

    I know Ohtani says he will be back soon and Dahl also says he will be back when first eligible. I know Dahl will be productive “when healthy”. You think Ohtani hits 20 homers from say May 1st on?

      You don’t have to, but it really depends on whether you need the SP or the bat more. Eloy isn’t this bad, and TG ain’t this good.

      But it’s a fair deal if you need the bat & can spare the SP.

    • Malicious Phenoms says:

      Eloy for sure.

    1. Walker Buhler hits a HR, then comes out and completely implodes. Adrenaline can be a funny thing. Glad I don’t own him.

    2. Phlegley is one hot schmotato right now.

    3. When Krush was drafted at 3.12 I thought “that’s a little early”. Now I’m thinking “wtf did I take Bryant at 3.09 for??”

    Dudes straight Krushin.

    4. Bieber has ice water in his veins. Lead off single, stole 2nd, 3rd on wild pitch, k, k, groundout. Love that kid.

  123. ThE sHiT says:
    (link)

    Some quick observations about Buehler through these first couple innings:
    Doesnt seem to be laboring or hiding an injury, or even fatigued. Just not hitting spots with any pitch consistently. Kept missing up and in with the heater to righties, missing badly with the slider(especially on that wild pitch to Wong that plated two runs), im no scout but that just tells me he doesnt have a feel for any of it yet. Ive seen much of his first 3 starts and they feel like Spring Training starts trying to shake off the rust and get comfortable with command. The velo is there, so is the bite on breaking stuff. Im looking to buy low where i can and am not too worried about him.

    • Lucky Dog says:
      (link)

      Another possibility is that he’s a Quad A guy right now who just isn’t seasoned enough for MLB. He nibbles a lot; and seems to get to him when he misses.

      I agree it’s not psychical – but the gray matter helps too. He hit that HR, and just straight fell apart.

      • ThE sHiT says:
        (link)

        Because his command has always been impeccable, i can understand the frustration of missing like he has today. Its definitely all in his head, his talent and stuff play all day everyday in the bigs, no way hes anywhere close to Quad-A.

        It was weird how he ran into the clubhouse after getting the silent treatment from the dugout when he hit the homer and didnt come out until there were 3 outs. Definitely phased him somehow.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Quad-A? Ha, that’s crazy… He’s a top 10 SP when right

        The other team doesn’t want to give up anyone else with Arenado. Would you trade Snell, Happ, and Peralta for Arenado?

    I hate offers like this, it’s a massive deal, that seems pointless, but I want to make sure I’m not missmt something.

    Head to head league – 12 team league – Can keep 4 forever if that even matters.

    Side A
    Bellinger – Rendon and Flaherty

    Side B
    Albies – Correa – Beninitendi – Snell and Wacha

    Hello again Grey,
    I am starting to be concerned about Buehler. Or, as Magic would put it, cerned!

    I know you weren’t drafting him, but in our 10 Team Points League where SPs are very valuable, I purchased him as my ace for a reasonable price (for our league), and yeah. I was looking at the box score today and it showed he was throwing 97ish, so not sure what the hell the problem is.

    Thanks Grey.

      Grey says:

      I’m concerned too, but a commenter above was watching and thought he’d buy low

      • The Great Knoche says:
        (link)

        He looked fine. The inning he gave up 4 he was pumped after hitting the home run. He only gave up one hard hit ball that whole inning. Walk, HBP, Sac Fly, Wild Pitch got him.

    Hey Grey,

    I am now regretting dumping Profar, went to pick him back up the other night when he had his first HR and he had been scooped up…sigh. However Winker is there, and I’ve been tinkering with my Sp’s after losing Clevinger…thought Buehler and Kluber would see me through but thus far only one looks like I thought they would. Buehler with another short inning dud today although 2 runs scored on a wild pitch.

    Anyhoo would you drop Jeffres(was hoping he’d come back to close) and a bat( Kike or Marte I assume)for any of the following : Bats…Winker, Smoak, Yandy, Soler, Renfroe or SP’s: E-Rod, Caleb Smith, Kyle Hendricks , or Urias?

    Roster is as follows:

    ESPN 5×5 10 team QS & OBP
    C G.Sanchez
    1B Freeman
    2B/OF D.Gordon
    3B/OF W.Myers
    SS Correa
    OF Yelich
    OF Buxton
    OF Meadows
    UTIL OF Domingo Santana
    UTIL 2B/SS/3B Baez
    UTIL 1B/3B Muncy
    Bench 2B/SS/OF Ketel Marte
    Bench 2B/SS/OF Kike Hernandez
    IL OF Gregory Polanco

    SP Kluber
    SP Boyd
    RP E.Diaz
    SP Buehler
    SP Flaherty
    RP Iglesias
    RP Leclerc
    SP Jon Gray
    Bench SP Musgrove
    Bench RP Jeffries (IL no spot)
    Bench SP Skaggs
    IL Clevinger

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      You don’t need more or different bench bats

      • EB says:
        (link)

        Ok cool, appreciate the reply. Would you hold Jeffers or swap out for one of the SP’s mentioned above?

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          I’d hold him to see if he gets the closer job

    Hey Grey
    I am in a 10 team 1 catcher league
    I have Realmuto as my catcher but I drafted for some unknown reason. Wilson Contreras.
    I have been trying to make trade offers but no luck
    I don’t want to drop him for nothing. Assuming all offensive categories are needed (the usual 5 ) SB”s would be nice though
    Who can I Target to trade for
    It’s not that he is doing awful but I don’t need a player who only plays 5 days a week
    There are guys on the waiver wire that are very tempting.
    I know I might have to cut bait at some point but not there yet
    Thanks

    Hey Grey! I’m hoarding starters to stream in a deep weekly league. I have Skaggs, Strahm, MGonzales, Fried, TWilliams, Wacha, Maeda, Lucchesi, and three of ’em sit every week. Who are the first two you’re cutting loose to speculate (hello, Dick Lovelady!)? Top of the waiver wire for SPs is JZ, Sanchez, D.Rodriguez, Alcantara, for reference.

    It appears that I was much too focused on my hoops team (won it!) during baseball draft week. So the process of building pieces starts now. 12 team H2H league so not rushing into any crazy drops or trades. It would s a marathon after all.

    Best on the wire…..Soler, Stewart, Lowe. Any swaps? Ten hitting cats….

    Ramos
    Yuli, C Santana, Healy
    Odor, Segura, Swanson(Trea on IL)
    Acuña, Hoskins, Inciarte, A Jones, Laureano
    DH McNeil
    Bench- Ohtani, Polanco (tough injury patch)
