Have you ever been to Staten Island? Shame if not. It’s one of the best boroughs. Imagine if they built a pizzeria on top of a garbage dump. That’s Staten Island. On Staten Island, there’s a Mother Mary statue on every lawn, as far as the eye can see. On each Mother Mary statue, there’s garland and Christmas lights. All year around. If you were to turn on all those Mother Mary Christmas lights statues together, you could see them from the moon. The electric bill would be a fortune too, about as much to cover the gabagool expenses for the entire borough. Anyway, you take all those Mother Mary Christmas lights statues’ electrical power, and you still don’t have the power of Vinnie Pasquantino and the sheer electricity he brings. In 69 games — hey now! — of Triple-A, he had 18 HRs and a 12.2% strikeout rate. What is he, a power hitter that’s gonna hit .280? Mama mia, that’s Italian! His walk rate (12.5%) was over his strikeout rate! *pinching the cheeks of Vinnie Pasquantino’s player page* You’re so handsome! With Carlos Santana being traded to the Mariners — figured Carlos Santana would’ve went for a last hoorah in Philly with Rob Thomson, but oh well — Vinnie Pasquantino is worth a flyer for power in all leagues. It’s Vinnie Pasquantino PaiSZN! Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Edward Olivares – 0-for-4. Wanna hear the funniest thing that’s borderline psycho? I started Olivares in a weekly league. Like he’s gonna start every game, let alone stay with the club through next Sunday! *turns to mirror* Yo, you’re cute in a macho way, but hella stupid.

Martin Perez – 6 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.22. Ya know what I’m watching right now, “Say Yes To The Regress,” and it’s just a video of me cheering regression for a pitcher I don’t roster anywhere.

Sergio Romo – Traded to the Jays. Now the Jays’ bullpen can go Romo to Romano, “an” +1. Sometimes I’m so clever I don’t even understand what I’m saying.

Kevin Gausman – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 2.93. Nice bounce back start from Gausman looking like a number two to three and more like the two to one we thought we had. Keep up the solid work, KG!

George Springer – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 14th homer, hitting .259, as he returned from multiple days getting imaging on his elbow. I’m sure he just wanted some pics of his elbow for the ‘Gram.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 18th homer. Would love to see Cake Batter aka Duncan Hiney get smoldering for the next 90 games, because he’s been a real low boil the first 72. By the by, The First 72 sounds like a movie I don’t want to see that Cougs drags me to. “Sure, okay, Ethan Hawke’s in it, great.” That’s me miserably agreeing to a made-up movie.

Matt Chapman – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer. Because I’m a sick sadistic ess oh bee who likes to torture himself, I’ve been watching Chapman and Olson on the Player Rater, and, boy, has it been way too close.

Trevor Larnach – Needed core muscle surgery and will be sidelined for six weeks. Larnach described the issue as terrible knots in his stomach, and the Twins thought he was talking about teammate, Garlick. Larnach’s replacements will be Celestino/Garlick. They’re good for SBs, that’s not steals, that’s abbreviating Sbarro.

Gary Sanchez – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 9th homer. I was thisclose to making him my batty call last night, and, instead I was stuck watching The First 72 with Ethan Hawke until I fell asleep.

Nick Gordon – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer. His brother is Dee Gordon-Strange, and he’s Nick Gordon-Strong.

Carlos Correa – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 8th homer. There’s plenty of guys who suck, so it might be unfair to lay this at Correa’s feet, but he’s so sucky whatever. A Sucky Whatever: Carlos Correa.

Sonny Gray – 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.17. Honestly, I don’t even need quite that good of a start from him, but just competent while staying healthy. Rather than taking this as a jinx, universe, please take it as me humbly asking for Sonny Me to be “just solid.”

Triston McKenzie – 6 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 4.03. The Regression Fairies had just finished making a “We Love Hopper” sign for the next half of Stranger Things’ season four, and they will kill your ratios. Streamonator sees McKenzie’s next start vs. the Yanks and raspberries its robot lips.

Kris Bryant – 1-for-4 as he was activated from the IL. Let’s see if he can stay on the field, you only have him six and half more years, Colorado!

Chad Kuhl – 9 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.49. In Coors? A complete game shutout vs. the Dodgers? Kuhl? More like, did someone put menthol in my PCP-laced joint? Chad Kuhl is proof that every pitcher does well after leaving Pittsburgh.

Tyler Anderson – 6 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.23. This was such an easy bench you honestly have nuggs for brains if you started him. I love ya, but your brain is well-battered chicken tenders.

Mitch Haniger – Has begun light jogging. Great, he’s in week one of The Biggest Loser, only I’m the loser for drafting him.

Kyle Lewis – Took batting practice as he’s been out for almost a month with a concussion. Is there somewhere I can bet that we will never see Lewis and Haniger on the field at the same time ever again? Feels like a solid $5 that could pay, what? Even money?

Jesse Winker – 0-for-3, and suspended for seven games for his part in the brawl on Sunday. A week suspension sounds like the best news for Winker’s owners all year.

George Kirby – 4 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 4.08. Was there an official announcement for a Home Run Kirby or was it impromptu?

Austin Hays – 2-for-4 and his 11th homer. Also, in this game, Adley Rutschman (2-for-5, 2 RBIs) hit his 3rd homer; Ryan Mountcastle (1-for-4) hit his 13th homer; Anthony Santander (1-for-4, 3 RBIs) hit his 14th and Jorge Mateo (1-for-4) hit his 6th homer. I missed this game; did anyone see if there were kids on the field trying to catch fly balls during the Home Run Kirby? Was Chris Berman announcing with lots of “backs?” Did they put an extra ball into play so one of the Orioles could win a free house for a lucky fan?

Tyler Wells – 5 IP, 1 ER, 1 hit, zero walks, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.23. Streamonator still saying no can do on Wells, and I’m not willing to bank on him.

Lucas Giolito – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 5.19. Not sure what I was hoping for here. If he pitched poorly again, then it might’ve been time to move on. If he pitched really well, he would’ve shown signs of being back. This “just okay” start? It means we have to hold with no idea what to expect.

Noah Syndergaard – 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.86. David MacKinnon approves…or is that Noah Syndergaard? Or are they one person that’s split into two? Exhibit A that they’re the same person split into two:

Gleyber Torres – Had a cortisone injection in his wrist after hurting his ankle. Makes sense? Cool, explain it to me.

Aroldis Chapman – Will make one final rehab appearamce today, and I can only imagine the Yankees are begging the Fantasy Baseball Overlord for Aroldis to get injured. “Someone rang?” That’s Fantasy Baseball Overlord wearing a towel as he magically lifts from a swimming pool. Boone on Monday said Clay Holmes has earned the closer role. It would make me incredibly happy if Holmes remains the closer, but I find it hard to imagine Aroldis setting up Holmes. Hopefully, I’m proven wrong. Either way, Holmes is a hold in all leagues, because he’s just good.

Jordan Montgomery – 6 2/3 IP, 5 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.27. Giving up five runs to the A’s at home is straight-up Joker material. Getting beat by Elvis Andrus? What, is this a tie-in with that new crappy movie with Tom Hanks in a fat suit? You fitting me for a straitjacket with this shizz or what? C’mon, man! Get it together!

Anthony Rizzo – 1-for-3, 2 runs and his 20th homer, on pace for 44 homers. HR to the Izzo!

Giancarlo Stanton – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 18th homer. And the 18th time this year I’ve said audibly, “I love you.”

Bryce Harper – Will need surgery on his thumb. Damn, did the Snell pitch make his thumb an innie and he needs it pulled out? Can’t even imagine what kind of surgery is needed for a fractured thumb, but I get squeamish watching Dr. Pimple Popper, so I prefer not to think about. They’re saying Harper might be back by late-August, which seems like wishful thinking, but I have no idea.

Maikel Franco – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer. Sucks to see this, because it reminds me to look at Juan Soto in the Nats’ lineup, and I don’t want to until he starts hitting homers. Can’t Soto take part in a home run derby in April to get him right? Do we have to wait for the All-Star Game every year?

Oneil Cruz – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer. His first homer was 109 MPH and it looked like he barely made any effort. A Cruz missile of love.

Brian Anderson – 1-for-3 as he was activated. Please, in Jesus Aguilar’s name, do not tell me he’s going to play 3rd base over Jon Berti when Jazz returns.

Pablo Lopez – 5 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 2.98. In Friday’s Buy/Sell, I told you to sell Pab-Lo, so you know my thoughts.

Adam Wainwright – 7 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.07. Wainwright subscribes to HBO Max — Hyperbaric Oxygen turned to max to blow young life with a mix of virgin blood into an aging pitcher. Did you think I meant the channel?

Paul Goldschmidt – 4-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 19th homer. Au Shizz!

Juan Yepez – 2-for-4, 5 RBIs and his 8th and 9th homer, and three homers in the last two games. Hot schmotato alert!

Jack Flaherty – Hit the IL with a shoulder strain. Flattery might get you everywhere, but Flaherty can’t get you to the third inning.

Harrison Bader – Hit the IL with right foot plantar fasciitis. Colloquially known as Chia foot.

13 team mixed league 7×7 (weird stats are [2B plus 3B] and [QS plus CG]), we keep minimum 2 max 4. Top 4 teams cash, next season’s draft including the keeper rounds (to fill teams with less than 4 keepers) don’t snake and are reverse order of standings, except that 5th gets the 1st pick (slot).

I figured as defending champ would be tough with last pick. Have been proven right + I made aggressive future looking trade right after FTJ’s injury timeline by trading for him. Currently 3rd from bottom and probably looking to 2023.

I have the below clear valuable keepers who I’m sure the cuts would be among if not the first choices in keeper drafts. Since >4 – who should I look to move, and who should I target? I’m sure I could overwhelm pretty much any player’s owner just based on the quality of the keepers regardless of whether or not they’re contending. I don’t feel like I have a good grip on who the absolute top of the top keeper guys are at the moment esp in context of the limited keeper format.

NL-Only H2H

SON doesn’t like Quintana’s start (-15.5) vs. WAS, but gives Patrick Corbin a 6.8. However, I’m not sure I’ll be competing for ERA and WHIP this week against my opponent who has Kershaw and Woodruff going 2x each.

A) Start Both – go ahead and take the risk of ERA/WHIP early to try and get the week started with a W and some Ks? I figure I’ll get Ws and Ks if I pitch everyone.
B) Start Quintana only. I can use Corbin’s streaming spot to pick up Barnes @COL since Keiburt is sitting out.
C) Start Corbin only
D) Bench both. Stream Ashcroft against CHC in their place.

Good Morning Grey,

I think that Yepez keeps getting enough PT to be rostered as my sole 3B in NL-Only H2H. C-Dick is a ways off, and Bader will be given breaks here and there when he’s back.

A) Rankings ROS for these SPs in H2H?

Cobb, Mahle, Quintana, Lauer, DeSclafani, Greene (IP limit).

B) Thoughts on Berti ROS? What happens when Wendle comes back. I doubt Anderson can stay healthy, and Aguilar will probably get traded.

C) Thoughts on this deal?

I give: Walker($3), Gray ($4), Greene($10), and my choice from above
I get: Olson, Manaea, Strider, and Robertson

I would be giving away a keeper in Gray, but if Walker gets traded out of the NL, this will have been worth it. Short-term, I get a third closer to go along with Ta. Rogers and Rainey. This would be helpful for the next few weeks. Strider and Greene will probably get shutdown around the same time, and I can just drop Strider since he can’t be kept. I wouldn’t want to hold Greene.

10-Team Rotisserie (No Playoffs) with no remaining IL slots (Tatis, Eloy, Stevenson — I assume each is 1-month away) and rostering near ready guys Tyler Oneill and Schertzer.

So roster-wise, I’m now in tough shape but look good in a short time. But now I have two more issues(Jansen and Harper).
1) I plan to continue rostering Tatis, Eloy, Stevenson.
2) IMO, with Kenley’s history he’ll be out for rest of season. So I’ll be dropping him (for Will Smith).
3) I also plan to cut Harper (for best available bat)

Do you agree?

I watch the Red Sox games and he’s been shaky. Also won’t play in Toronto, imagine if there is a playoff series there, especially the 3 game wild card without a home game.

Would you drop Pham for Italian Beef in a 12 team 5×5?

Drop Kirby to pick up Josiah Gray? Or do we see Kirby bouncing back?

Thank you!

Would you trade my Teoscar and Vinnie for Gausman and Tyler Stephenson? Have Bill Contreras and Bethancourt at C now. Or hold and stream SP. Thanks!
