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.

    When you look at your NFBC team in our league, Albright, do you kind of go….hmmmm how am I so far out front. Solid roster and Albies/Segura. But to be there without full throttle Stanton/Bellinger. Looks like it’s been a pretty healthy team, especially in the rotation. I think that league will probably be tight to the end. I doubt I can dig out of the whole I’m in. Bad luck team.

    I feel like a guy who is going to suddenly pop up in the bigs with out a lot warning is Kyle Tucker.

    So Skaggs was money in the banana stand? Hey Culligan Man!

    Oh Mookie you so fine, you so fine you blow my mind hey Mookie! Hey Mookie! He’s the captain of the Oaktown Kids Are Alright team as the kids love both baseball and bowling.

    Matt Boyd has been pretty good. Might get some look see from teams in contention needing another arm. Would give him a little boost so long as he doesn’t go AL Easterly.

    The A’s have been fun. Sitting at .500 right now which is good because the last couple of years the first big East Coast swing has been the end of their season. A bad replay overturn cost them a game at NYY and they still held their own there and in Boston and they boat raced the Blue Jays yesterday. WC contention probably a pipe dream but they are tough out at least.

    Speaking of the kids, my 10 was super crazy pissed when I told her about Osuna. She dropped an FBOMBING AHOLE on him (she gets the mouth from her mother who has a sailor’s argot).

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Flukazy!

      That you don’t understand how I’m so far out in front in NFBC says more about you than about my team! Totally kidding, my team is not very good, I’m totally perplexed… I told my SPs to someone the other day, and asked if they thought that was a top team, and let’s just say they weren’t impressed… Bauer’s my homeboy, but Porcello, Yu, Happ, Tyson Ross (@home), Shane Greene, Mikolas, Trevor Williams, Wacha, I mean, oy.. A wing and prayer… Not to mention, Giancarlo and Bellinger are my 1st picks and they’ve been really underwhelming… Imagine I had Betts and Lindor….

      Boyd looks like pretty bleh underneath the hood…

      A’s have some surprising pop (I really need to get Matt Chapman into my NFBC lineup)…

      Your ten year old sounds very woke.

  7. Prog_Nation says:

    Who to drop to pick up Vlad? Desmond, Ozuna, or Tim Anderson. Thinking Desmond as he has been awful, but Coors. Tim Anderson, eh, I have Segura and Dee for steals. Ozuna, as you mentioned in another article’s comments to hold for now. Thanks.

    • Grey

      Desmond

      Dahl, but he sits like 3 times a week

  10. Favio Vasquez says:

    What in the hell do i do with Ozuna? Drop, trade or bench. I heard he talks to Bonds before games for tips so is hearing swing at everything?

    • Grey

      (link)

      Bonds didn’t swing at everything

          • Favio Vasquez says:
            (link)

            Word, so if I can trade him should I or just roster him? Hes hitting the ball hard but all grounders. With bases loaded last night he dribbled into a double play on the first pitch.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              I’d roster Ozuna

  11. Ozzie Smith says:
    (link)

    Damn I own Vlad in every league now except one and I’m trying to figure out a creative way to make it happen, I just don’t think I have a drop to do it. Do you see anything different? This league is a 10 team h2h redraft
    C Grandal
    1 freeman
    2 Albies
    3 Shaw
    SS turner
    CI Rendon
    MI Machado
    OF Mazara
    OF Acuna
    OF Brantley
    U Cron
    U Markakis

    SP Bauer, Archer, Quintana, Wood, Castillo, Pivetta, Newcomb, Ray
    RP Jansen, Iglesias, Vasquez, Boxberger

    Let’s just say he is called up June 15 what kind of line would you predict for him the rest of the way? Similar to what you expect from Acuna or better?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      20/.310 in half a season… You have no bench? Can’t drop anyone then

      • Ozzie Smith says:
        (link)

        @Grey:
        I have starting pitchers in my 5 bench spots, I also have Daniel Murphy and Alex Reyes on the DL.
        I was thinking of offering someone a combo like Markakis, Quintana, and a RP for an outfield upgrade. That would free up room for me to add him and upgrade from Markakis.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Could work

          • Ozzie Smith says:

            @Grey: maybe try Quintana, Jansen for Buxton?

    SON is iffy on Fulmer’s start in Seattle tonight; with Cano out and Cruz hobbled (but Segura and Haniger raking) … are we starting him?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      SON accounts for guys out of the lineup… I would start him, SON is saying 6 IP, 2 ER…That’s not that iffy

  13. BSA says:

    So this is not the year to listen to Grey and put a catcher in place and leave him alone.
    When I look at catchers and use all my different resources for the best available of the ‘bleh’, I close my eyes and click on Hicks.
    Well, well, well if he isn’t second on the list of the buy column. Having both C & 1st eligibility was a plus I never considered.
    solid!!

    Your thoughts on Puig or Jankowski to replace Marte?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Depends on the catcher… I’d go Puig

    Good stuff Grey,

    Any news on bake off ? Any news on the Rudy developed bakery streaming tool ? Or was it Pie in the Sky ?

    Hope Meadows has some impact. Been waiting for him in a dynasty. Holding Vlad in the same team. You think Vlad will be draftable in first 5 rounds next year ?

    5×5 Kingham over Castillo, Wacha, Gausman, Pomeranz? Is the order correct?

    Best wishes,

    Another Dan

    Would you trade Wacha for Gleyber Torres?

    Current 2b and MI: Odor, Eduardo Esobar & Kinsler (Would drop 1 of these 3)

    Current SP: Buehler, Godley, Newcomb, Darvish, Pivetta, Castillo, Snell

      Escobar

      • prey879 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Regarding the same team above…He came back offering Daniel Murphy and Delino Deshields for Yu Darvish. So I’d be keeping Wacha and dropping Escobar still.

        Better or worse than the Wacha for Torres? Not sure how I should be viewing Murphy with his slow recovery.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

    Tim Anderson had me so smug in April but now…in a Dynasty league where point system rewards power & steals a bit extra, and with no bench would you:

    drop Tim Anderson for B. Crawford or Semien or Addison Russell?

    Great timing, I literally just received 2 offers to receive Vlad! What do you think:

    1. 12 team keep-5 forever (H2H OPS). His Vlad (keep for $4, lowest possible keeper salary) plus one of Hill/Maihle/Sonny for my nonkeeper Thor. I’m running away with 1st in this league and also have $4 Severino and $7 Nola (plus Morton) to buoy my rotation nicely.

    2. 12 team keep-7 forever (roto). V. close competition between 1st and 5th. Would you trade to receive Vlad in any of the below options?
    A – My $11 Devers for his $5 Vlad?
    B – My nonkeeper Delino for Vlad
    C – My $5 Clevinger for his Vlad
    D – My nonkeeper Hendricks for his Vlad

    Just wanted to thank you for sticking with the “wait on pitching” strategy when so many reached for the top 4. I almost did myself, despite having success not doing that in the past.

    It’s not even that the top 4 are bad–3 are absolutely as advertised. But, in my 12 team competitive league, there are SO many good SP options on waivers that I can’t roster them all because I have none to drop.

    Meanwhile, I took Lindor & Snell instead of Sale and Andrus and I’m SO glad.

    16 league h2h keeper … roster size is 27 with 3 DL spots, and we keep 24 …

    My second base situation is …

    Cano-DL/Drugs, but don’t want to drop him
    Odor = stank, but don’t want to drop him
    Kingery = new guy making adjustments, definitely don’t want to drop

    The Rox may call up Garret Hampson to replace D.J. LeMahieu, and if that happens I want to make room for Hampson and I can do this by dropping a starting pitcher … Wheeler or Faria …

    Who do I drop?
    Or, do I hold onto both starting pitchers?
    Or, do I look elsewhere to shoehorn Hampson onto my roster?

    Shallow limited moves (19 left this yr) H2H, sitting in 1st and have had an empty roster spot most of the year. Use a move on Vlad? League is shallow enough that plenty of decent bats are on the wire (Brantley, Cron, Suarez, etc.).

    I asked you during draft season – draft and stash Vlad or Eloy? Your response – VLAD! I got some really funny reactions when I drafted him for $1 in our 5 year keeper league. Gonna be fun to own him!

    Since Vlad is pretty much locked into getting the call relatively soon, I picked up Soto… another chance Im willing to take. Thoughts on his chances of getting the call this year?

    Right now CI is Villanueva in 14T mixed, no one’s on the wire (even schmoatos above). Would you drop Villa for McMahon and hope for a promotion?

    Always happy to look for help on Friday’s Buy & Sell …great work!!
    I was shocked as well when I looked @ LeBlanc’s stat lines …just conditioned to ignore some players I guess.
    Trying to help a couple of WEEKLY lineups for Monday in 12 team 5X5 leagues.
    1) Need some OF hitting help especially in HRs (11th) & RBIs dead last but 1st in SBs by 14 & a meh BA of .244. Looking at possible pickups: Parra, B Anderson, Jay, Jankowski, Span or Luery?? Possible drops would be M Taylor (hitterton likes for this week with a 10.2 so I likely roll for one more week), M Smith or Margot.
    Also F Condero is on WW …I could try a claim if he is the better add

    2) Best SP spec add out of Tropeano, LeBlanc, or Eflin??

      Sure, lose Teoscar

  64. The Harrow says:
    (link)

    not that i thought he’d get worse, but yelich was WAY too overvalued for moving to MIL. imagine if ozuna never moved his GB rate out of that toilet it was in the first year he had decent HR’s, and probably make it even worse, that’s yelich with better batting average (compared to ozuna back then anyway) and more steals (but like eaton’s level of steals)

    -admittedly i’m a bit behind as far as reading all posts since but as late as may 3rd or so:
    “don’t worry about vlad, up in september (which was ralph’s ETA at the time too, may have changed since). this was the answer to many people asking about vlad.

    • Grey

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        @Grey: yeah i read about that, particularly the part of “ya and this isn’t a SMALL at bat sample either” from rotoworld. i’m just behind on the posts (rectifying, but the comments take a while on yours). i did nab vlad in one spot where we keep like 4-7 per year and due to owner change he wasn’t kept by somebody, i used my earliest pick on him in that. i stashed the “more likely up” types like senzel/kingery (depending on draft date)/willie than vlad (who clearly WAS stashed across nearly all of my leagues, excepting maybe shallow 12’ers redraft with no NA slots and small benches)

      • Mr. A Knife says:
        (link)

        @Grey: wait a bit, a guy not yet called up at all (nor news indicating he is at all) for a guy who’s ADP was what, 50th (that’s a guess, and might be a VERY conservative one, who’s only really underperforming in AVG?). i get vlad’s “never done this in AAA stats” but again, from may 3rd (or later, i haven’t gotten fully through the entire posts) he was still not even a “worried about stash due to ETA”. i’m not coming at grey on this one, but the idea of punting on a guy drafted 6ish weeks ago in the 4th round of a 12’er who’s not injured for a guy with no actual info on a call up at all in redrafts seems so bat shit it’s worse (a lot worse) than the mookie for trouts heard round here a bit lately.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, but a flyer on a guy to stash for two (3?) weeks to see what happens, if he can change your team, worthwhile gamble

          • Mr. A Knife says:
            (link)

            @Grey: of course that’s worth doing (and i can see the impetus to think he’s ahead or better than the other stashing options), but dropping/trading your 4th round pick isn’t close to the guy to do it for is what i’m saying here. i doubt you disagree with that part, which is what the guy above asked.

      Nimmo, Mini… Hampson was only promoted to AAA

      • Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season says:
        (link)

        @Grey: this doesn’t hurt me for having added him at least, i’ve now added him for covering jedong (in a 20 team redraft at 2B), and was dropping wong for nimmo (ASSUMING my bid is enough of course) anyway. well i guess i’ll lose wong’s at bats for 2 days now. can’t wait on these things though, end up kicking self in nuts if/when he was called up and somebody beats you to it when it’s a near worthless loss anyway. if/when hanson (please playing time even when panik is back please please)/harrison are back wong was dropped anyway. only a confluence of injuries to the others was what left him there.

        for the 20 teamer, with OPS, total bases, slugging, BB’s, hits added for the jedong spot: dietrich, lebanese restaurant middle infidel stuffed eating balls out of TEX, the crying farmer.

    Should I drop Tim Anderson, teoscer, Lamb, Suarez, or adsrubel. For Gyrko.

    #2 I have Thor ,Pivetta, Snell, Corbin , Mikolas, Castillo, and peacock.
    I also have Kela, Miller, Giles, Alex Reyes, And Britton on the dl.
    It’s limited inning 1300. With wins , saves, k, era, whip Walk to k ratio..

    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.

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

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yes, I think he’s hurt…Something’s up… Go with Heaney — I’d take Bellinger and Buxton, if that’s what you mean, but you wrote Manaea on both side of the trade

      • Selling Manaea says:
        (link)

        @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

        • Grey

    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?

    My OF is weak with Taylor and combo of Owings/Heyward being rotated in until S Marte is back. I’m 3rd in SB’s while towards bottom in HR’s / RBi’s somehow.. thought it would be opposite with this team but Ozuna and Puig have killed me.

    What moves should I make with these guys available in the OF?
    Franmil Reyes
    Rajai Davis
    Leury Garcia
    Mikhie Mahtook

    Grey, there is literally no way I can sell Braun. I guess it’s league dependent, but I’m in a 10 team h2h redraft. Never again!

    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.

    I don’t think I can drop anyone else right?

    Ramos, Hoskins, Ozzie, JRam, Bregman, Mookie, KB, Markakis, Shaw, Jo-Mart, Gardner, Braun, Degrom, CMart, McCullers, Vasquez, Giles, Knebel, Ohtani, Snell, Castillo, Soroka, Taillon, Kingham, F. Peralta, Cahill, Weaver.

      You have zero bids? $177

  124. Terrence Mann says:
    (link)

    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 says:
      (link)

      @Terrence Mann: stream rajai against lefties for steals, and probably other times if/when he gets starts. don’t touch kipnis, even in 16 teamers he’s been true crap. hell 20’s too. gomes/alonso make some sense here.

    How much FAAB out of $126 in a 14 team ESPN 5×5 league do i bid to grab Soto?

    You suggested $7 for Meadows the other day, he ended up going for $6 as i didnt bid for him after all (not a huge believer in him).

    My initial guess is $12. What say you?

    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?

    C Gattis
    CI. Freeman, Eugenio, Santana

    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?

    Thanks a lot!

    • Grey

    Do you think Hader gets converted to a starter this year? Next year? He’s a great reliever, but I wouldn’t keep him as a reliever. If he starts and had those sorts of numbers, I would without hesitation. If you were a betting man, what would you say the odds are he makes the move within the next year? Thanks Grey.

    SOB, really think kingham is staying down, for some reason he was dropped about 5 days ago in NL only and just 15 or so hours ago i nabbed him. i doubt 5 days ago the owner knew he was being minored.
