Let’s see, if Tyler O’Neill is Kelly Leak, then Coach Walter Matheny is curmudgeonly happy.  “Lean into the pitch, Whomever is the Cards catcher while Molina and Kelly are out!”  If in this reboot T. O’Neill is playing Kelly, who’s playing the girl’s role on the Cards?  Hmm, only one it could be is Tommy Herr.  Come out of retirement!  By the by, this movie?  Doesn’t hold up at all.  Don’t ever watch it again.  Remember what you can and move on.  Any hoo!  Tyler O’Neill (2-for-4, 4 RBIs, hitting .368) hit yet another homer — his third in three games — and he’s capable of hitting 30 homers.  Not over the whole year, like if we’re backtracking, I mean from today forward.  Not sure if the Cards play him, sometimes Walter Matheny appears drunk, but I would grab O’Neill for power.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Carlos Martinez – Played long toss.  That’s nice.  Did he go for ice cream after?

Alex Reyes – Will return to the rotation next week.  He should be owned in 100% of leagues.  He could easily be a top 30 starter the rest of the way, and maybe more.

Matt Carpenter – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 4th homer.  Carpenter nailed it!  He’s hitting .210 on the year, but over .400 in the last week, for a little schmotato action.

Miles Mikolas – 9 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.24.  I’m not saying I was the only one in the preseason saying to draft him, but was I?  Because when I drafted him in leagues around 275 overall it felt that way.  By the way, Mikolas is comfortably above Ohtani on the Player Rater.

Roberto Osuna – Leave was extended until May 28th.  I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating, because I don’t know if I just said it in my head or on the site.  Blogorheadwhatisitis is the clinical term for it.  MLB should just suspend Osuna for three months.  By prolonging his suspension, they have to keep reporting he’s on leave for another week, which just keeps the matter fresh in people’s minds.  Suspend him, wipe your hands on a dish towel and be done with it.

Khris Davis – Headed to the DL with a strained groin.  Khris said he can’t phiss straight.

Zach Britton – Will begin rehab on May 30th, which would put him on track to return around mid-June.  I hope he can hit cleanup.

Adam Jones – 1-for-3 and his 8th homer, hitting .268.  As he rounded the bases, he made the universal sign to “call me” while mouthing the words “waiving my trade clause.”

Manny Machado – 1-for-3 and his 15th homer, hitting .343.  He mouthed, “Adam can fit in my suitcase if you throw in a middle reliever.”

Adrian Beltre – Still weeks away from returning.  You in the preseason, “I don’t know with this Moncada guy.  Beltre has been rock solid for 27 years.  I’m taking him to go with my Miggy Cabrera.”  You now, “Well, poop.”

Rougned Odor – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer, hitting .174.  Golly!  I had forgotten he was on my team.  Odor’s like, “Yo, I can limbo under last year!”

Joey Gallo – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 14th homer, hitting .201.  Wait right here, I have to go look at what the Rangers team average is…Yup, that’s horrid!  .226!  Ha!

Walker Buehler – 7 IP, 1 ER, 2 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.38.  He’s Alex Reyes in an easier division.

Max Muncy – 1-for-2 and his 5th homer, and 2nd homer in the last three games, as he bats 2nd.  Conspiracy Theory Alert!  Muncy told Dave Roberts that Puig slept with his daughter, which is why Muncy has garnered favor and Puig didn’t even start yesterday.

Greg Bird – Won’t return this week.  Shouldn’t even have a blurb.  Should not even be talking about him.  He’s garbage, brah and five sistahs.

Masahiro Tanaka – 5 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners (4 BBs), 3 Ks, ERA at 4.95.  Remember that stone Indiana Jones had to move, but to move it and not trigger a booby trap Indy had to put a bag of sand down to offset the missing weight?  Okay, Michael Pineda was the stone and Tanaka was the bag of sand.  *mind blown*

Gleyber Torres – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and two homers (5, 6), hitting .321, as he continues to bat ninth.  A monkey could manage a major league team better than some current managers.  In fact, the Jays have been using a Gibbons for years!

Aaron Judge – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 12th homer, hitting .286.  For what it’s Jayson Werth, Judge was hitting .226 in the month of May before yesterday.

Jose Berrios – 8 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.82.  Yup, gave up on him too soon in April.  He’s righted the ship like he’s Jack Dawson in his dreams!

Nicholas Castellanos – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .316.  The Greek God of Hard Contact uses lightning as a cotton swab!  (By the way, the people who say Castellanos isn’t Greek are the same people who call you on the phone — the horror! — and say, “Hey, I think you forgot to invite me to your party.”)

Jerad Eickhoff – Felt a twinge in his fingers and had a setback.  Now we just need VV to get hurt to get my guy Enyel De Los Santos into the rotation.  Sorry, The Secret says you have to put it out there.

Nick Pivetta – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.23.  There’s literally 25 comments a day that go like this, “Grey, handsome lipped man, do you take [scrub] or Pivetta?”  I’ve been saying Pivetta since literally the 2nd week of the season.

Nick Williams – 2-for-4 and his 3rd homer.  Also, in this game, Aaron Altherr (1-for-1, hitting .202) hit his 5th homer. For one brief day towards the end of May, a light shined on those random sleepers you were excited about 85 days ago who you dropped 80 days ago.

Hector Neris – 1 IP, 0 ER and the save.  Gabe Kapler is the worst changer upper of closers ever.

Mike Foltynewicz – 6 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.72.  The most not accurate that feels accurate statement:  I’ve started Pivetta and Foltynewicz for almost two months, and they always face each other.

Dustin Pedroia – Could return on Friday.  If you’re hoping he returns to save your fantasy team, you’re no better than the Mets considering Jose Bautista.

Zach Davies – Expected to return on Thursday.  The start is vs. the Mets which is always fun for SPs, but Davies has kinks in his shoulder.

Freddy Peralta – Optioned to the minors.  I briefly mention Peralta on the podcast that’s coming later today, in a mostly derisive manner.  My Schadenfreddy is working overtime.

Chase Anderson – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.86, as he was activated from the DL.  Starters who don’t strikeout a lot and give up a few runs while only going around six innings are the epitome of pitchers I don’t usually mention in my roundups.  Chase Anderson is the best example of that.

Travis Shaw – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer, hitting .246.  Didn’t realize how close he was to the precipice of being droppable in shallower leagues.  He’s a cold streak away from being Matt Davidson and a hot streak away from being Christian Villanueva.

Domingo Santana – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer and his 2nd in the week.  He hit .197 last April, and didn’t hit his first home run of May until the 24th.  Cust kayin’.

Corey Knebel – 1 IP, 0 ER, and his 2nd save, ERA at 4.70.  Just as you drew it up when you drafted him in the top 75.

Jake Lamb – 1-for-2 and his 1st homer in his 3rd game back from the DL.  Is he already out-slugging Goldy?

Jason Vargas – 5 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 9.87.  Sonavabench!  Don’t ask why I own him; it’s a deep league.  I should’ve trusted the Stream-o-Nator, but, this year, yowzers he’s thrown some howlers (almost rhyme!)

Elieser Hernandez – 5 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.08.  Why can’t he change his first name to something easy to remember like Meredith Baxter Birney.  He’s a soft-tossing command guy on the Marlins, not buying.  Sorry, Meredith.

Ryan Zimmerman – He’s due back ‘fairly soon,” said Nats manager, Dave Martinez.  He added, “Because Adams stopped hitting.”

Juan Soto – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 1st homer on the first pitch he saw, an absolute rocket to left, wait, now I’m describing my erection watching it.  Since Juan Soto sounds to me like “Want soda?”  Whenever I hear Juan Soto, I scream, “Dr. Pepper me!”

Bryce Harper – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 14th homer, hitting .231.  MLB has a serious problem.  I was in a Whole Foods the other day, and this guy looked just like Bryce and I said to him, “Start hitting some homers, Bryce Harper!”  And he said, “Who’s Bryce Harper?”  That saddened me.  Then again, maybe he was some Birkenstock Seitan.

Mark Reynolds – 3-for-5, 3 runs and his 3rd and 4th homers in six games.  The Nats have a remarkable ability to start anyone at 1st base and get production.  It started last year with Adam Lind, and continued this year with Adams and now Reynolds.  Can the Nats please trade for Goldschmidt?

Gio Gonzalez – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.38.  Gio’s like, “Yo, Fangraphs Database take your xFIP and shove it in the Regression Fairies’ bum.”

Franmil Reyes – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer.  Unless you count the homers he hit as Kyle Blanks a few years back.

Freddy Galvis – 0-for-3, hitting .234, and has started every game this year, after doing the same last year with the Phils.  Galvis made a strange deal with the devil a few years back.  “Here’s my soul, now start me in every single game even if I’m not good.”

My waiver adds have been money this year due to bouncing ideas off of you and following this site.

2. Thoughts on M. Adams? His 20 AB/HR is awesome but looks like he is getting squeezed for playing time. Thinking of dropping him for hittertron/schomtato streaming purposes. I am a sad Goldschmit owner and have been replacing his production with Aguilar/Adams/Cron. Goldie turning it around would cure a lot of problems.

Ok, one more Grey,
I was looking back at some of the comments and I noticed that a Gordon kept getting mentioned and that he was DL’d. I kept saying why the hell does anyone give a rat’s ass about Alex Gordon? Then I realized there were other Gordons in the league, such as Dee Gordon, WHO IS ON MY F’N TEAM!

No! Broken Toe???? He is now useless for 2018! WTF!!!! I am sure Matt Carpenter will fill in nicely – I think I just threw up in my mouth!

And now that’s all. Thanks for listening Grey.

Hello again Grey,
Did you happen to catch any of the Buehler start last night against the Rockies? He was dealing, then he got hit in the side with a nasty Story line drive. Now, I happen to own both, but I obviously didn’t want Story to get a hit off of Walker’s rib cage. Anyway, Walker actually got the out and dropped to his knees. Very scary. He got back up and pitched the rest of the inning and another one (or 2 – I can’t recall). Ended up with a ND, but he pitched really well. I mean, who can hope to beat the indomitable Marquiz de German – Good God! HA!

That’s all. Thanks.

In an attempt to get as young as Atlanta, Mets have signed former Brave Joey Bats.

Seriously between Joey, A-Gone, Bruce, Frazier and Reyes you’d think the Mets would pony up for a better medical staff. These guys are being held together with more duct tape and twine than Cuban cars. Where are the Wilpons going with this? Their plan every year appears to be “to save money.” Well, mission accomplished. Again.

@Grey: Holy crap. Joey’s already in left field and batting fifth tonight. That was quick. What does it say about that lineup that he can stumble off the street and slot right into the 5 hole.

PS: Anything wrong with dropping Weaver after his start tonight to pick up Blake Parker? Only other possible drops would be Andujar, DeShields, Dustin Fowler or Jack Flaherty. Or might Parker not be worth it, given that he’s Scioscially awkward.

I finally had enough of waiting for Odor (been holding on since draft day) to produce so Sunday night I dropped him for C Hernandez, to take effect starting Monday. Of course he had to finally get a dong the first day I switched on him. Should I re-pick him up and drop Hernandez or wait to make sure he is actually getting going first? Other options include E Escobar, Marwin, and J Harrison.

Darvish was actually a waiver wire pick up and not a draft for technical sakes, and a lot of closers are dropping turds too.

This post was more for ribbing him than to be technically correct! My WHIP has actually come up from a 1 to a 4 in my worst league, so I’m heading in the right direction this week.

Have you noticed Dan Vogelbach destroying AAA? His ISO is .410, OPS is 1.160, and he has 9 HRs in 24 games. This is supported by a big boost in FBs (0.69 FB/GB) and strong pull%. His 2.2 BB to K supports the notion that he isn’t just up there hacking. What are the odds this is small sample, him being a AAAA player, or that he has joined the fly ball revolution and is primed to do some damage with this call up? I would have to drop Belt or C. Santana to open up a CI slot. Worth it? 12-team standard.

16 team roto, keeper league. 6×6, 7th offensive cat is K/BB ratio.

Was offered Correa for my Gleyber Torres

I got Torred at the end of my draft for $1. He can be kept the next two years at $6 and then $9. Correa was drafted at $30, so he can be kept for one extra dollar the next two years. With Torred being to so cheap, how much would that sway your decision? My team is destroying pitcher cats, lacking in most of the counting hitter stats.

Was also offered Goldy, Myers, and Longo by a rebuilding team for Torres and a $3 Jose Martinez. I already have Votto, lamb, Seager, beltre and Cruz clogging my CI and util.

Would you take either deal right away? I’m currently in 3rd with plenty of ground to make up on offense.

MY pitching staff in a 12 team keeper is:
Severino…Nola…Bauer…Archer…Castillo…Wacha…Corbin…Gausman…Aroldis…Hader and I have Alex Reyes and Britton coming off DL in next few weeks. I am thinking about adding a closer as I lost Middleton. Who should I add between Nate Jones and Blake Parker and who is the drop? Thanks for your rankings in helping me build a “sick” pitching staff!

@Grey:

I’m with you on those factors (though flukishly the Rockies are 19-11 on road and Dodgers 8-14 at home thus far this year. I know, I know, thats small sample size and owes to Colorado pitching…) but Stewart has around a 6 ERA through 9 career mlb starts. His era is being served by both luck and RP usage. I just can’t see it at nearly $20. Anyway, thanks for indulging the question.

What’s your opinion of Wood? When healthy, typically a 5-inning 1,2 run pitcher (and LAD not a scoring machine!). Reyes on waivers; should I drop Wood or Kela?

Hello Grey,
One more thing? I am such a dumbass, but I had the box checked to “Notify me of follow up comments via email” with my last post. I thought I recall you having some control over that. Any chance you could un-check?

Thanks very much.

Hello Grey,
What would say to a trade involving Edwin E and Corbin for Segura and Newcomb? I would be giving the Edwin side. This is a Yahoo 12 Team H2H League with 2 Keepers. Do you like Torres better than Segura? I could ask for him instead.

Thanks very much Grey.

Made few trades and got excited about following outfield until realized that they almost all need to have turnarounds of sorts:
Hoskins, Stanton, Haniger, Mancini, Acuna

Hoping for improvements or my season is not good!

I’ve asked before about holding Osuna, but didn’t mention it was an RCL. I’ve been trying to hold him until the suspension was handed down, but who know when that will be. I’m still 2nd in saves and am pushing the limit on Innings Pitched.

Thanks for the advice, I wont ask again! Haha

@Grey: I think I will. My team’s success is more dependent on Schoop coming around and Darvish and Quintana having continued success.

Thanks again!

@jose: Osuna is scheduled to appear at a court proceeding on June 18. It seems highly unlikely anything will change with his status until at least then (unless he somehow reaches some kind of settlement out of court before then, which also seems highly unlikely in a criminal proceeding), and probably well after.

Good morning Grey,

Any problem with me picking Andujar over Domingo Santana as my Util if I’m more concerned with avg than power?

Thanks!

I want Benintendi. What do you think of these offers:

2. Cain and Flaherty
3. Acuna and Flaherty
4. Acuna, Suarez, and Tanaka
5. Escobar and Flaherty
6. Suarez and Cain

With Reyes coming back, is now the time to shop Flaherty, or hold and push Tanaka?

Are there any definite own preferences out of this group of MI/CI options: Longoria, Aguilar, Carpenter, Kinsler, and Escobar?

Or is it just a coin flip between them all?

Struggling at 2b as my plan w Happ there fell through and hes not playing everyday.

Been offered Odor for Jon Gray

My pitching staff:
Archer
Wacha
Pivetta
Castillo
Gio Gonzalez
Jon Gray
Alex Reyes

Do I pull the trigger or punt 2b and stick with Happ and Goodrum with the thought of playing the wire all year there?

Sorry if asked prior, but should we be hanging onto Dahl whilst others remove O’Neil from waivers? If playing time shakes out for Dahl, preference is to keep him. But the Rocks appear to all be legally smokin a bit extra prior to making out the daily lineup card.
