How good is Vladimir Guerrero Jr.?  The Blue Jays are now saying they’d like to see how he deals with failure.  He’s so good, he’s never failed!  He will be up by mid-June.  The Jays can longer hold him down anymore without concocting fake reasons.  Very soon you’re going to read this from me:  “Vlad, the Mini Impaler, just jacked another homer to go with his .320 average.  Aren’t you glad you listened to me and grabbed him back in mid-May?  You didn’t grab him?  Aw, shucks, you did a hashtag fail on that one, didn’t you?  It’s all right, there should be another generational talent up in five years.  I hear Bartolo Colon’s got 17 sons — one could be up soon and light the world on fire, or at least put the world in a microwave, open the door 30 seconds before the world is fully heated and eat it.”  And that’s me quoting future me!  So, do you wanna be the guy (or girl who can totally hang with the guys), saying, “Damn, Grey, you’re handsome AF but your witticisms cut deep sometimes.”  Or do you want to read my wound-salting barbs and think, “I’m so glad I own Vlad.  Now who is this Bartolo Colon Jr. he’s talking about?  I should comment calling him Bartolo Semi-Colon and totally make Grey cackle!”  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Devin Mesoraco – Here’s 2 Live Ew with their smash hit, Me So Raco!  “Sittin’ at home watching the pitcher with a ball, so I got out my fingers for a pitch to call…”

C.J. Cron – Headed for the season everyone knew he could have if he played.  Well, everyone but The Sciosciapath apparently.  I will now have Rotowear make me a shirt with Cron’s face that says “Be Ceej” and sit outside of The Sciosciapath’s house in a military jeep.

John Hicks – I actually own Hicks in my NFBC league, and I’ve never started him because my corners are stacked, but I likely would be doing better recently if I started Hicks over Bellinger.

Niko Goodrum – Visual Metaphor Alert!  Puts 151 rum into mouth, ignites lighter, spits 151 at flame, flames shoot onto nearby wall that has been doused in gasoline so it reads “Niko is a hot schmotato” in flames.

Howie Kendrick – You know what I’d like to see along with ownership numbers?  The percentage where a guy is being played.  For unstints, Howie is a great MI and 2nd UTIL, but how many are playing him at 2B or OF?  I wonder if Rudy can do this.  The problem with this, obviously, is some people put Kendrick in at 2B and have Altuve at MI.  If you asked them, they’d call Kendrick their MI, but they don’t have their team set up that way.  I guess what I’m asking is why don’t more people have OCD?!

Tyler Saladino – Fun fact!  A Tyler Salad is a dish featured on the latest Netflix Chef’s Table, where a Dutch chef braids his hair with romaine lettuce and diners wash his lettuce head at a sink with olive oil and vinegar.   However, Tyler Saladino is a hot schmotato.

Matt Duffy – I hesitated adding Duffy to this list, because he’s been nursing an injury this week, but I dared to list him anyway.  I am a daring lister, one with great courage.  Hugh Glass wrestled bears and inspired the movie, The Revenant.  I am the Hugh Glass of listing players on a fantasy baseball blog.

Jedd Gyorko – Some weeks it feels like we’re grasping at the cigarettes that broke Joe Camel’s lung, but this week it feels like there’s legit guys who could have lasting impacts.  The Cards seem just about done with Matt Carpenter, which is good news for Gyorko, jerko (stutterer!).

Brandon Crawford – On our last 7-day Player Rater (yes, we have one of those too), it shows Crawford is doing work, above Trea Turner, Bogaerts, Correa, uh hmm, there’s not a lot of shortstops to point out that are supposed to good, huh?

Travis Jankowski – Things have a way of working themselves out.  Baseball lost one Pollock this week, but gained Jankowski.

Austin Meadows – I just gave you my Austin Meadows fantasy.  It was written by my dog, Ted.

Matt Joyce – Didja know Matt farts into his hand and throws it at teammates, saying, “Joyce will be Joyce?”  Also, true, he’s currently a scalding schmotato and the Hitter-Tron is like, “Yo, I wanna push a pipe cleaner up my rear hole.”

Adam Duvall – I’m in a pinch, as my puppet — a dead lobster — would say.  I really need Schebler to do something, but Duvall is heating up.

Tyler Clippard – This week was a glorious time for SAGNOF.  Reminds me the time in 2013 when Kevin Gregg gazed skyward with his sports goggles and said, “Hey, big man, I got this,” and Carlos Marmol tried to get big man’s attention and threw seven straight pitches over the backstop.  Shrimp Tepera and Sandra Oh could also be in the mix.

Dan Winkler – Funny, his name is very close to what I call my penis, Tone Winky.  Any hoo!  Arodys is likely still the Braves closer, but Winkler and Minter could see some saves.

Justin Anderson – Did I say a glorious time for SAGNOF?  Yo, it’s a clusterfudge shituation on this closerousel we call SAGNOF.  In Anaheim That Is Not Los Angeles, I’d put the closers-of-the-moment at Anderson, Blake Parker, then Cam Bedrosian.

Bruce Rondon – Also, Nate Jones could see saves for the White Sox, which means bupkis or everythingkis.  On one team, I have Rondon, Anderson, Ramos, Winkler and Clippard, and I might have five closers or none.

Edubray Ramos – Saving the best for last!  And by ‘best’ I mean most gloriously messy bullpen shituations.  Gabe Kapler thinks he’s managing the 7th game of the World Series in May, and using matchups in the ninth to get one out.  Yo, Kapler, maybe you go easy on the green M&M’s.

Andrew Heaney – Might not be more than an Anaheim Streamroller, but the Stream-o-Nator loves his next start, like it loves when strangers make eye contact.

Wade LeBlanc – The Stream-o-Nator might just like LeBlanc because it longs for some friends.

SELL

Ryan Braun – Our Fantasy Baseball Buy/Sell Tool is like, “Yo, Grey, you have you computer upside down, Braun’s a Buy.”  I would like to buy Braun, then feed him to a family of Samardzijas.  Not even sure if it’s realistic to sell Braun, can you get anything for him?  What if you call him by his initials and say he’s got great roast beef?

Christian Yelich – Sticking with the Brewers’ theme, but not really.  Braun is on an island all by himself, the Isle of Friquinn Injurious.  “Baby Face” Yelich, however, is striking out at a much higher rate, walking less, doing his usual ground ball bit — yo, that bit was stale the first five years we saw it — and is looking less like a boon in Milwaukee than anyone expected.  He appears pretty similar to what we saw in Miami, with just less male valets, but everyone loses male valets when they leave Miami.  Check out what you can get for Yelich on our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer.  I would not trade him for the opportunity to use a urinal next to R. Kelly, but I would explore options.

Good morning, Grey! Hope you’re enjoying a lazy Sunday. Speaking of which, Domingo Santana is off today. It seems fitting that Sunday Santana gets Sundays off.

I’m starting Flaherty today at home vs. Nola’s Phillies, correct? Also, is Jack a hold past today? Or should I drop him for Junis or Weaver?

(BTW: How awesome is it to see STL batting Tyler O’Neill cleanup today?)

Finally, would you stash Carlos Rodon now? See him being viable at some point in RCL? See him as decent #3 starter? Or more like #5 this year?

Soto available in redraft H2H league. I am building for Sept playoffs as I am well ahead of the pack mainly due to crazy luck in pitching. So I can roster a guy without expecting results for a few weeks. And I am an active trader so I grab the best players without a ton of regard to crowded positions ( within limits), and then make deals when opponents are in need. But I am struggling on who my drop would be.

Who is my drop or hold?

Here’s my buy for the season. Indians hitters. Whoever is availabe. Zimmer, Kipnis, Gomes, Alonso. After this (difficult) week, the next month is almost too good to believe with two series vs. Detroit and Minnesota and THREE series vs. Chisox. Even get the Brewers, too. The toughest pitcher they face all month is Berrios. If their bats don’t get healthy against Shields, Zimmerman, Odorizzi, et al. and back end bullpens of Shane Greene, Rodney, and Chicago’s three headed blown save monster, they never will. If those guys are available, grab them now.

I got $100 for groceries, $1400 for liquor and $6,000 for you to bail a couple of shit puppets out of jail

With that said, is it crazy to straight drop him to slot Bird into my DL? I think Bird has a shot to be more healthy and productive than Braun ROS. Tell me off the ledge or nudge me so I can make the leap please haha.

Is Goldy a buy-low candidate? He’s been reallll bad.

Would you be selling Kershaw now on name value? I’m worried about that bicep, plus LAD kinda suck.

Thanks!

Grey!

You might have gotten a double post so apologize.

1. Aguilar or Gyorko ROS? Aguilar hit 16 home runs in 30 ABs last season. Plus the 1B job is his until Thames gets back. Gyorko was ranked higher in the pre season though.

2. Gyorko, Odor, Peraza- Assuming Gyorko gains SS status, which 2 would you rather own for MI?

Is Pomeranz going to suck all year? Drop for Heaney?

In my keeper after reading/watching buy/sell/hold I offered Manaea/Cruz for Belly and Manaea for Buxton (I was all in preseason)…

@Grey: thanks for Pom confirmation. Those were two trades. Both rejected. It’s a strange keeper league and Manaea got hammered today.

In a vacuum would you trade Manaea straight for Bux?

Or

Manaea/Cruz for Bellinger?

Also offered Manaea/Lemeiheu for Odor/Verlander today

Damn, Lameaheim or Anaslime didn’t make the cut for the mediocre Angel pitchers at home.

Gyorko or Aguilar ROS?

Aguilar hit 16 homeruns in only 280 ABs last year. Looks like he has taken over at 1B until Thames gets back. He’s got 2 more homers tonight. Gyorko was obviously ranked higher everywhere preseason though.
