Welcome to the class where we discuss the planets — Science class? I don’t know, I’m just your substitute teacher, Mr. Albright. We’re going to put aside your syllabus, and teach you how all planets revolve Vladimir Guerrero Jr.‘s planet, IncomingTripleCrownium. Yesterday, IncomingTripleCrownium went 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and hit his 21st homer, as he hits .344. Does planet Daddy Vladdy revolve around IncomingTripleCrownium, and how is that possible since IncomingTripleCrownium is an offshoot of Daddy Vladdy? I don’t know, which is why I’m merely a substitute, and was told I would never be hired for a full-time position. IncomingTripleCrownium spins on its axis, without an absurd amount of spin, a totally natural spin, and that gave way to a Semien explosion not seen since a 14-year-old boy spent a little too long in the bathroom with Marcus Semien (2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs), hitting his 15th homer. Hey, just had a thought, whatever happened with George Springer? Never the hoo! The next big orbital sphere outside the IncomingTripleCrownium gravitational pull was two homers from Teoscar Hernandez (3-for-6, 6 RBIs, 9th and 10th homer). I already took the L on my Teoscar schmohawk post, though, if being honest, I think I might’ve taken that L a bit prematurely. Guess we’ll see. Or we already saw. See? Saw? Get off the bench, Miguel Sano, I’m trying to get down! Next up on the flow chart of planets moving around IncomingTripleCrownium is Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (3-for-5, 2 runs and his 6th homer). Please get hot, Lou-Gu-Ju, please. Then, if we’re counting orbital rings, like the toilet in my college dorm, Bo Bichette (4-for-5, 5 runs, 3 RBIs) grabbed a slam (13) and legs (8), and is it going to be weird when I try to draft two Blue Jays hitters in the first five picks next year? Finally, two smaller planets, that many confuse for large rocks, Rowdy Tellez (1-for-1, 2 RBIs, and his 4th homer) and Cavan Biggio (2-for-4, 2 runs) hit his 5th homer. To celebrate Biggio’s return, his father Craig Biggio called him after the game to tell him, “Stick your elbow pad into a pitch or change the name on your jersey.” Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:

Steven Matz – Hit the Covid IL. Okay, be well and stay the eff away from IncomingTripleCrownium.

Martin Perez – 1 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 4.52. The BJs showed Martin how much he sucked.

Bobby Dalbec – 1-for-3 and his 8th homer, and his 2nd home in the last three games. Hot schmotato alert!

German Marquez – 5 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 4.60. Grey’s Brain, “Marquez looked great at Coors last time out, but there’s no way you can start him there, but his next start is in a road game? We are going to own the day and the night!” Grey’s Brain is dumb.

Aristides Aquino – Was activated. I am the biggest fan of Aristides. I even nicknamed him the GGOATOAT, because he’s the Greatest GOAT of All-Time, but he needs actual playing time to be a difference maker in mixers, and needs to hit.

Eugenio Suarez – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 14th homer, as he bats 6th. Ya think anything clicked in David Bell’s peanut brain when he took a guy who was hitting leadoff and moved him to the six hole? Like, I don’t know, maybe that he shouldn’t have ever been hitting leadoff.

Tony Santillan – 4 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners (4 BBs), 5 Ks, as he was called up. Doesn’t Santillan sound like a secret society of lizard people? No? Maybe it’s me. Any hoo! He’s way too wild to mess with until we see something. Didn’t even grab him in my NL-Only leagues.

Mike Yastrzemski – 1-for-4 as he was activated from the IL. Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “Apple juice should always be served in a sippy cup.”

Daniel Hudson – Hit the IL with elbow inflammation. That means Wander gets promoted! From the 7th to the 8th inning, and it’s Wander Suero. Sorry, prolly confusing how I wrote that.

Kyle Schwarber – 2-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 11th and 12th homer, and 2nd leadoff homer in two days. MLB manager’s brain, “Great, he’s hitting well as leadoff! Let’s keep him there!” Normal adult brain, “He’s hitting home runs, and has always been a home run hitter, move him into a run-producer spot of the lineup.”

Joe Ross – 8 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.19. Solid start, which is more than I can say about Pab-Lo, and I’d use the Streamonator for Ross.

Isaac Paredes – 0-for-2. Called up recently, and Paredes has been playing regularly. If only Ethel Merman was around to see it. RIP you queen. Paredes has great contact skills (13% strikeout rate in the minors), but zero speed and barely any power. He’s twinsies with the Twins’ Arraez.

Carlos Rodon – 7 IP, 1 ER, 1 hit, 2 BBs, 9 Ks, ERA at 1.89. Almost pitched his 2nd no-hitter of the season, and, if you’re wondering, his peripherals aren’t saying he’s much worse than a 2.00 ERA pitcher. It’s like people get Men In Black mind-wiped each March, and forgot about these insane pitching years that they could’ve had for essentially free in drafts.

Zach Thompson – 5 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.25. Take your index finger and point it into your chest. Now say, “I can be a top 50 starter for fantasy, if I were in the Miami Marlins’ system.” Anyone know if Dave Duncan retired to Miami and is sprinkling some magical fantasy dust down there? Thompson has great command, but as mediocre as stuff gets. I put in a bid in NL-Only leagues, but wouldn’t go near in mixers, yet at least.

Pablo Lopez – 3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 3.12. Didn’t get the memo that all Marlins’ starters are fantastic. Can we get him that message?

Austin Riley – 3-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 12th homer, hitting .299. Au-Riley hit that one off my pitcher, Pab-Lo, and I exclaimed, “Aw, really?” Then took a nap, it was a lot to take.

Corbin Burnes – 4 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 2.13. This start was vs. the Pirates, and I didn’t see it because I was carrying shopping bags at the factory outlets — by the way, factory outlets are not stores that sell factories, who knew? — but since I didn’t see this game, I can only imagine how Burnes was beat by the Pirates. Bloopers and weak grounders that went for singles because the Brewers’ fielders forgot to take the field.

Avisail Garcia – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 13th homer, hitting .241. On the Brewers, he may as well be hitting .375. Is Yelich even playing for them anymore? Yelich has 15 homers, and is hitting .225 — in the last two seasons combined!

Yordan Alvarez – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and a slam (9) and legs (1), hitting .302. Captain Woo Cubano needs to team up with Cyndi Lauper and record a song, Game After Game (I Homer). If a pitcher fades, and I need to homer for Grey…

Kyle Tucker – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 13th homer, hitting .268. Whether Tucker was worth his draft price tag will be debated by pundits for years to come, but thinking about taking George Springer instead of Tucker makes me want to dive into a pool, and drink a beer while submerged, so it feels very existential.

Framber Valdez – 7 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 1.42. Now Valdez has Predator xFIP.

Nelson Cruz – 2-for-4 and his 13th homer, hitting .288. Nelson Cruz was woken the night before by some overeager archeologist who dug up his catacomb and thought they discovered an ancient artifact.

Ryan Jeffers – 1-for-3 and his 3rd homer, hitting .197. *removes half of eyeglasses, so I’m only wearing a monocle* That’s better.

John Gant – 1 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.36. The Regression Fairies finally laid eyes on John Gant’s long, flowing hair and they’re not done sucking their fingers.

Max Muncy – Hit the IL with an oblique strain. The minimum amount time he’ll miss is three weeks. The Max? Yeah, Muncy.

Trevor Bauer – 6 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.64. This start was in one of the easiest matchups in baseball, home vs. the Rangers. Bauer’s ERA in his last three starts is 4.74. See Anime Grey in the video at the top of the page for more on Bauer. Oh, and: This past week had the lowest spin rate of any week this season, and batting averages are up and strikeouts are down.

Mookie Betts – 2-for-3, 3 runs and his 7th homer. Mookie Best!

Isiah Kiner-Falefa – 1-for-4, 1 RBI and his 15th steal, hitting .294. Just the ol’ 35-steal pace from your catcher in Yahoo leagues. ACKCHUALLY, I’d take that from my shortstop in any leagues.

Jackson Kowar – 1 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 36.00. Would I start JacKo anywhere? Sure, in Neverland.

Andrew Benintendi – 1-for-4 and his 8th homer, hitting .283. Starting to feel like the Kikuchi of hitters. He keeps doing well, but then I look at his overall numbers and I get the meh face.

James Kaprielian – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners (4 BBs), 7 Ks, ERA at 2.51. Streamed him on Saturday less because of the Streamonator, and more because he was home and he’s MediOAKer.

Matt Chapman – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer, and 2nd homer in two games. Not sure which one of youse Chapman is spiting, and lit a fire under his butt, but he’s got a hot ass–Um…Well, he came alive this weekend.

Matt Olson – 2-for-4 and his 17th and 18th homer, hitting .289. ‘Member when I ranked him in the top 20 overall last year, and it seemed slightly crazy? Well, it didn’t happen then, but I knew it was in his bat. Just a Matt, er, of time.

Caleb Smith – 4 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 3.61. Took me two-plus months to buy in and that’s what I got. Well played, Caleb.

Max Stassi – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 6th homer, 3rd homer in his last six games, hitting in the three-hole, and it makes sense as he hits .339. Loved Stassi coming into this year, until he had hip surgery, then I backed off him, but, if he’s healthy, I’m 100% back in.

Patrick Sandoval – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.51. Is he in the rotation? I didn’t ask you if he should be! Show yourself out. Okay, now that we got rid of the troublemakers, is Sandoval in the rotation? Hmm, I don’t know either, but he should be. Sandoval’s prolly better than half the Angels’ rotation, but might be needed in relief.

Jared Walsh – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 14th homer, hitting .293. Such a great call for a preseason sleeper, that I totally didn’t draft anywhere because I’m an idiot.

Trent Grisham – 0-for-2 as he was activated from the IL. Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department said, “I don’t know who complained, but I’ve removed the three baby pools from around my desk.”

Tommy Pham – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .237. He led off the game with a blast off of Joey Lucchesi, who apparently can’t do his own waste management.

Fernando Tatis Jr. – 2-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 19th homer, hitting .279. Imagine FTJ with two working shoulders.

Manny Machado – 2-for-4 and his 9th homer, hitting .242. Machado feels overdue, but he also feels like he can either turn it on or not, and has nothing to do whether he’s getting hot. Way more up to his whims.

Chris Paddack – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.14. Wish I could say I saw this pitching line and I was like, “Awesome, get in my lineup and it’s off to your next start,” but I 100% checked the Streamonator, i.e., I don’t trust Paddack in every start.

Luis Severino – Left Saturday’s rehab start with the help of trainers. Unfortunately, this isn’t a blurb brought to you by a Brit, and I don’t mean trainers as in sneakers. Severino has a significant groin strain, and that’s likely a six-week setback.

Jameson Taillon – 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 5.74. Maybe, just maybe, the Pirates were trading away Glasnow in a terrible trade, so they could move other pieces, and other teams would think they’re chumps. The rope-a-dope of trading.

Domingo German – 4 1/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 3.88. Domingo translates to Sunday; Sunday in German is Sonntag, and yesterday he was Sonntagged. See how that works?

Aaron Nola – 7 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 9 Ks, ERA at 3.69. That seems impossible. A 2.69, I understand. How does a 3.69 work?

Shane Bieber – 5 2/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.28. “Bieber getting bodied by the Mariners” isn’t something I had on my bingo card. For a bingo, I do have “Cody Bellinger hits like at least a third round pick” and the priest isn’t ever calling that, is he? By the by, Bieber’s curve spin was down 300 RPMs, and he gave up multiple homers on his curve for the first time in his career.

Logan Gilbert – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.13. It’s funny how some confidence, and a few borderline calls can make someone look drastically better. Gilbert looked great yesterday, after being around the plate, and getting those calls. I’d give him another chance, but as the Streamonator tells us, his next start is iffy at best.

Dylan Moore – 1-for-5 as he was activated from the IL. D. Moore is no perfect 10, but he might get you some steals.

Kyle Seager – 3-for-5, 2 runs and his 13th homer. All those years of getting birthday cards from his mom saying, “We love Corey more,” has truly paid off.

Jake Fraley – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer. He was in Friday’s Buy, because he was hot schmotato’ing last week, and it continues, because I said so.

Mitch Haniger – Left yesterday’s game after fouling a ball off his knee. “Listen, Mitch, I’m Doctor Needlekuss, and I’ve been brought in to try an experimental surgery.” Mitch, interested, perks up, “What’s that, doc?” “To avoid further injury to your testicles, I want to sew them to your knee.”

    Is Garrrett Hampson worth holding in 12 team roto redraft? Seems like he’s situational for home games only and is getting benched more often. Options to replace include Austin Hayes, Jake Fraley.

    Thanks Grey and Razzball crew!

  2. Jon says:
    (link)

    I have decent depth (16 teamer, pts) but no (healthy) superstars on the offensive side: Haase, Kirilloff, LGJ, Urshela, Hayes, Haniger, Teoscar, Riley.

    IL: Seager, Conforto, Voit
    Bench: Wander, India

    Pitching is good: Glasnow, Burnes, Gausman, Castillo, DeSclafani, Skubal, Gilbert, Sims, Fry

    Are you holding the whole team until IL guys + Franco are in lineup and then trade (I dono, Voit, Haniger) for a solid closer?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Seems fine, is this a redraft league? Wander is available in all my redraft leagues

      • Jon says:

        Ya it’s a redraft. There’s another guy in my league who will for sure swoop Wander if I dropped him.

    Adolis or Greinke/Rogers…first in four hitting cats and last in ratios and QS…but I always like to win a trade in a vacuum as well.

    What do you think Rogers IP limit looks like? I just need him to be going 6.

    Finally, need to replace some of Bombino’s power. Which of these guys…Gallo, Suarez, Sano, Avisail Garcia?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d trade Adolis, but I’d want different SPs

    Grey!

    Loved it!!

    a. More like PaBlow, right? Or was that Escobar’s nickname.

    b. Thanks for the Smyly/Miley paradigm streamonator picks. Started Smyly, since dropped for Gilbert ’cause I think he’s good. Didn’t pick up or start Miley ’cause it was Miley. Then I saw Miley’s success and said Smyly? He’s so bad but Grey is always right, so TYVM for the W. By the by, he was staked to an early lead yet still needed 91 PC (!!!) to get through 5IP.

    c. Framber everywhere until further notice. He threw 10 pitches in the 1st inning, 3 pitches for strikes!! yet retired the side in order. Twins were in the last episode of Lost and unable to find their way out.

    Surprised you didn’t see the catcher questions coming. So 3-2-1…

    Can you rank: Stassi, Yasmani, Zunino

    Also: You seem to be saying Gilbert is still a streamer especially in 12 teamers. Is that so, and would that be the same for fellow rookie Manoah?

    Thank you sir!

    Grey,

    Got 2 questions for you. In one of my leagues it is unfortunately a rebuilding year (injuries have made sure of that). 6×6 H2H categories league.

    1. How big of a believer should I be in Tyler O’Neill long-term? I added him in FA and could keep him in the last round, but he is being asked for in trades. Wondering if I should look to hold or sell high.

    2. Is Shohei Ohtani a generational “fantasy” player (real life seems obvious), i.e. someone worth giving up huge value to obtain? I sold at our trade deadline to acquire tons of future draft picks, and am being asked to surrender 3 first round picks and O’Neill for him.

    Thank you in advance for your input.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. His AVG will crash

      2. What’s a 1st rounder? No idea how many teams are in your league or how many you keep

      • NJW says:
        (link)

        Sorry for lack of info there, a first rounder in a league with 5 keepers and 10 teams. It’s a keep by round setup, but basically all of the top 30 or so players are all kept even if they are 1st round values.

        The top pick ends up being Nelson Cruz, Bogaerts, Scherzer, Kershaw type of tier but falls off.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

    Hey Grey, 12 Team, H2H. Struggling to make a decision on this situation with Solak, Biggio, Mous. Please advise.
    A)-Put Biggio @ 2B, drop Solak.
    B)-Keep Solak @ 2B, drop Biggio.
    C)-does a healthy Mous replace Solak or Biggio?

    Brendan Rodgers with 7 games at Coors. Or Biggio with 7 games including 3 @ Baltimore. Rodgers has some tough customers as Yu, Snell, Woodruff and Burnes. Not sure I quite trust Buddy to play Rodgers everyday.

      Cavan Biggio

    Roto redraft league using K, QS, ERA and WHIP.

    Rodon or Bauer ROS?

    Olson’s statcast is crazy, including his .274 xBA and 16.9% which makes me think his average can hold.

    Someone offered to trade me Jazz straight up for my Romano.

    I’m currently in 1st place, and have 2 “closers” Romano and Fry. I have lost saves every week even with those guys on my team.

    Grey – I’m not sure where you rank Jazz at a 2B, but any ideas / insights – is this is worth it?

    Good morning, mr grey

    I’m planning to trot these pitchers out this week, in my h2h 5×5 with locked lineups:

    P Lopez @ CHC
    C Bassit @ NYY
    A Wood vs ARI vs PHI
    A Manoah @ BOS @ BAL
    Y Kikuchi vs TB

    Would you replace any of them, with any of these, please:

    M Fried vs STL
    S McClanahan @ CWS @ SEA
    D Cease @ HOU

    Also, adbert alzolay was dropped; still worth the claim, blisters and all?

    Thanks again

    • Chucky says:
      (link)

      In a similar situation in a H2H. I’m sitting McClanahan in favor of Pablo @Cubs. I am starting two start Manoah and sitting Bassitt @ Yankees. FWIW.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Fried over Bassitt

      I’d grab Adbert if I had room

      • Mitt Face says:

        Wow! A Fried pick! that’s rare sighting. I shall note it here, in my trusty log-book. Thanks, Grey.

    Hey Grey,

    I’m curious as to your opinion regarding an offer I’m thinking of shooting out. I’m in a 6×6 roto league (OPS is a cat), and it is a keeper league. I have Juan Soto and could keep him next year for a 6th round pick, so there’s some value. But my 2B and 3B situation is a real mess. I was going to offer the following to a GM (not sure if he will bite, but wanted to know if I’m crazy giving up Soto since I was under the impression that I’d keep him forever, even in 2 years when I’d have to give up a 1st round pick for him). I have Winker and Yelich and Franmil (IL’d for now) in my OF, and am struggling in stolen bases. I was going to offer Soto, Tapia and Donaldson for Albies, Rendon, Arozarena and Iglesias. Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Can’t you trade Yelich for a 2b?

      • Phil says:
        (link)

        You think Yelich for Albies is ok? Or should I ask for Albies and Arozarena if Yelich for Albies is not in my best interest?

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          I’d take Albies

  36. Eric says:

    Hey Grey,

    I’ve kept Dylan Moore while he was injured because I had an extra IL spot, so I figured what the hay… would you drop Garrett Hampson to activate him? Similar players, but it seems like Hampson’s playing time is being affected now.

    Thanks!

    1 moncada or bohm
    2 mountcastle or bohm
    3 andujar or mountcastle
    4. Pick 2: Torres, Swanson, B Rodgers, Leury Garcia

      God bless you. I didn’t have open heart surgery, but had 5 stents almost 7 years ago and doing well. Friends of mine had open heart surgery and are now walking 5-6 miles every day.
      Don’t give up. Open heart surgery has some tremendous results. Sometimes the risk is well worth the reward.
      If the cardiologists say you need it, may be wise to listen.
      Best wishes.

      In my prayers Phenoms, I lost my Grandpop about 2 months ago..He was the American Dream. Immigrant parents from Italia, he’s father died when he 6, mother spoke no English, he shined shoes on the corner at 8 to help out. He joined the Army, got married left immediately after his wedding to be stationed in Germany for 18 months. Had 5 boys. He once worked 3 jobs to support his family, he would say “Some days I’d come home and I’d ask your Grandmother what’s for dinner, she’d say the boys are fed but there’s nothing for us. That was I cared about.” He later went on to become Philadelphia Magazines Business man of the year. He lost a son to brain cancer, he lost his wife about 6 years ago. While he grieved inside and obviously was hurt, he never was down to long. “See the Phils last night?” Baseball was his happy place. Losing him was one of the toughest things I’ve gone through. “I’m not living forever, Grandpop” (he called his grandchildren Grandpop, and his sons Dad) It’s been hard watching the Phils without him. Just Saturday when Neris gave up that 3 run homer to tie the game I swore, I could hear him “Jesus Grandpop this guy’s an imbecile!”

      I’m sharing this with you to hopefully give you a little comfort in knowing that how much crap we go through in life, it’s your family and friends that help us push through. My Grandpop till his last day was betting horses with me and keeping me from getting too down knowing we weren’t having much time together anymore. I hope you’re at peace and I’ve always enjoyed your comments. Good Luck, my friend.

  47. Dave Funnell says:
    (link)

    What are your thoughts on the crackdown on sticky substances for pitchers? Do you think it’ll affect everyone or certain types of pitchers? Are we going to see a ton more homers hit, at least in the short while, until pitchers adjust to having to pitch with nothing else on their hands? I find it’s difficult to know who to stream or even start, as even the good matchups end up poorly. I’m over in my projected innings, and every starter I have has been rocked for almost a week now. And even studs throughout the league are getting rocked too.

    Or do you think this lowered spin rate is insufficient enough to matter going forward, and this is just a weird week?

    • The Great Knoche says:
      (link)

      Seemed to affect Bauer!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      It’s going to affect pitchers who were cheating more…Hard to say who those are, but if you see a big spin rate drop this past week, it’s likely that pitcher

      • Dave Funnell says:
        (link)

        What’s considered a large drop in spin rate? 200+?

        And I feel like it may take a few consistent starts of lowered RPM for it to be more valid, right? One bad start with low RPM, maybe. Three bad starts with low RPM, we’re into something.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, 200-300 wouldn’t be great, and prolly want a start or three, but one start like Bieber’s is noticeable

    also what’s with odubel herrera? Guy scored 6 runs in 2 days and hes still 25% rostered and no ones talking about it.
    Also tucker davidson: lucky starts or is his .9 whip and era in the low 1s gonna stay that way? Should I add him?

    Even with SAGNOF, I have too many relievers. Should I be dropping one or two of them? My obvious don’t-drop ones include: Yimi, Trivino. The other ones are Graveman. Sims, Staumont, Tyler Rogers Basically for those four, I just wonder whether they’re really at the head of their teams’ committees and whether it’s worth holding them over adding, say, Amed Rosario, Zack Davies, or Logan Dilbert.

    Hi Grey!

    I had an unsuccessful trade offer (needs based) I would like your opinion on. The original trade offer sent to me was Lance Lynn for Matt Olson. I countered with Matt Olson for Lucas Giolito. I am not a good evaluator of trade offers, so I am trying to determine if I was way off based with my counter offer. Also, what type of SP should I expect in return for Matt Olson?

    Morning Grey,

    Could you share which TWO of the following starts you would bench?

    Brubaker @WSH
    Brubaker vs CLE
    Davidson vs BOS
    Davidson vs STL
    Garcia vs CHW
    McClan @CHW

    Thanks!

    • Grey

        (link)

        Ah, I actually also have Sammy Long – not sure if he’ll be a starter, but if he is, he will line up against Arizona. So let me follow up by asking which ONE of the following starts would you bench (assuming McClan @CHW and Brubaker @WSH are still the bottom two):

        Brubaker vs CLE
        Davidson vs BOS
        Davidson vs STL
        Garcia vs CHW

    So can we all agree that JD David had his hand amputated & they’re still calling it a sprain? Because who misses 2 months with a sprain? Is their rehab center like a mid-evil torture chamber filled with racks & Iron Maiden’s, bloodletting devices & various rectal probes?

    Mets gonna Met I guess.

    Ps – anyone besides me crazy enough to start Maeda fresh off the IL @ Seattle tonight?

    • Grey

      I’d start Maeda if I had him

            Breaking: Springer just sprained his oblique crossing his fingers.

            JDD tried to give him a “thumb’s up” and sprained his hand again.

            They’re both expected to miss another month as a result.

      • William Hung says:

        wouldn’t Grandal’s value be much higher in an OBP league? I’d think he’d be like a top 3 catcher in that format

        • Grey

          I’d think so

          • BtheEsq. says:
            (link)

            We also use Total Bases, which is not necessarily his forte…….season long, Grandal is 8th overall at C.

            Last 30 days he’s 5th to Stassi’s 9th

            Last 14 days Grandal is 7th to Stassi at 2nd

            Last 7 days Grandal is 12th to Stassi at 1st……

            Just sayin….

    1. Stassi, Haase, or William Contreras at C?

    2. Also, with only 4 IL spots on my roster (and no NA spot) I have 8 guys with IL or NA status; so 4 of my players are taking up active player roster spots and I can’t sustain that for long.
    Which of these guys should I drop to roster someone useable? (some of these are obvious don’t drops I think and ideally I’d keep them all; that’s what makes it so hard):
    -C Sale, Z Gallen, J Means, S Gray, T Andone, V Brujan, G Springer, M Muncy

    Looking at most of my NFBC leagues where my staff’s are built around Lynn and Gausman with a few closers and innings eaters mixed in I am doing great in pitching points.

    IKF hasn’t slumped at all since what seems like mid-late April when people, including me, were asking if they should swap him out for another catcher like Carson Kelly – Lets make a note that in the future, if IKF does slump again at some point, the answer will be a hard NO for his current owners to drop him (injury notwithstanding).

    Speaking of catchers – when did Christian Vazques become a different hitter? It seems like he isn’t trying to hit for power this season and he already has 6 SBs – which I think is already a career high, at the age of 30.

    Finally, heading into yesterday’s game, Villar was leading all Mets batters in WAR – saw that note on twitter and wanted to share

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Ha, yeah — Vazquez always seems to hit for power the first 2 weeks of season then disappears — crazy on Villar

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        My catcher position has been such a shitshow since I dropped IKF. I’m probably gonna overpay for IKF to be my SS next season just to reverse whatever bad juju my team got from dropping him this year.

        • Grey

    1.). For all your Skubal drop questions, I’d at least hold for his next start @KC. Great stream, and if he’s really sharp again, I think we have to get back on the bandwagon.

    2.) Wow. Saw you said Rodon > Bauer. I think I agree but kinda crazy to read.

    3.) Logan Gilbert might be a hard “hold”. He’s been sharp his last few starts and improving rapidly. Next start is at home vs K prone TB and we already know he’s a hot fire prospect.

    4.) Peep Joey Votto. Some tweeters were citing his really strong underlying peripherals. Might get hot in a hurry, and that lineup is good in the middle.

    5.) Dropped Eric Hosmer in a deep 12 teamer. I know you loved him pre season but he’s been AWFUL since covid list. Wonder if he’s suffering post illness? I thought it was contact tracing but maybe not. Kendall Graveman has been bad since too. Speculating but maybe These guys are getting pretty sick behind the scenes and can’t get it together after.

    7.) Hope Pablo Lopez and German aren’t victims to the “sticky stuff purge”. They haven’t been that ugly or close to it all year. Prayer hexagon?

    What is your take on Brandon Crawford? Do you feel his current stats are an anomaly?

    He is performing like a top 5 SS at the moment. The Rest of Season Fantasy Baseball Projections For Hitters (Steamer) tool has him the ROS putting up less stats then he has so far this season.
    If he doubles his current stats, he will be close to a 85/28/90/10 SS at the end of the 2021 season.

    • Grey

    Where do you stand on Jo Adell in a keeper league? I have him as a super late value but also in a position to challenge for a top 3 finish this year. He’s mashing AAA but also K’ing the rest of the time. Hold or look to trade him before his call-up?

    Do I dare sit Woodruff at Coors in favor of Montas home v. Angels ? You’d think Melvin would have learned to allow Montas to go 6 innings and then pull him. Have to think his era for the 1st 6 innings is under 3.

      It was me! Is Elliot Gould not basically the coolest guy on earth in it?

      That Gambler rec below is a good one for a similar kind of movie. I love seventies grime, the wandering plots and pot-haze and low stakes and weariness. Fat City, on Amazon, is a nifty little boxing movie with Jeff Bridges and Stacy Keach that I also saw recently.

        The Long Goodbye is my favorite Gould, was lucky to have seen it on a big screen at UCLA in the 90s with Altman doing a Q & A afterwards, check it out if you haven’t seen it!

      • OaktownSteve says:
        (link)

        Thanks again Logan. California Split spoilers herein…

        The movie was a completely Altmanesque, shambling shaggy dog of a thing. Gould and Segal are great and they’re in this incredibly rich milieu. Great characters popping in from the edges all over the place.

        The end of the movie is a wonderful thing in it’s way. The hot streak is ridiculously improbable, completely defies the expectations of what you think will happen to these characters and yet at the end, nothing is resolved, nothing is made better and in fact, in Segal’s case, seems to foreshadow a kind of existential crisis. Perfect subversion of the hero’s journey narrative machinations and leaves you on uneven footing emotionally as a watcher.

              I love Altman, but since you said the movie is weird and Grey said wandering plots was a good way to put it…

              Hemingway once said he could “tell when Faulkner had been drinking on the page” and for better or worse, I can feel when Robert Altman is hitting the joint on the screen. Overall though that shambling whatever vibe is such a nice respite when so much modern storytelling is nothing but set pieces and feels closer to a video game. I guess I’m biased though. The Stones and Pavement are like my two favorite bands, and them not giving a shit is half the draw!

My first impression is that’s crazy – but I could use better pitching, and Bauer has too many seasons of terrible ratios… Rodon and Rogers look great – but Bauer is probably going to swamp them in innings, QS, and K’s – and potentially have terrible ratios as a price.

    Which side would you want?

    And would you rather have Lindor or Adolis Garcia ROS? Lindor might get the deal above done, instead of A. Garcia -but would that be worth it?

    Thanks man.

    Need some reassurances on SON’s rankings this week. Weekly H2H points league. Start 4 SP on the week.

    Corbin vsPIT (Anderson), vsNYM (Walker)
    Eovaldi vsTOR (Manoah), @KC (Keller)
    Manoah @BOS (Eovaldi), @BAL (TBA)
    Gausman vsARI (Smith)

    Bench:

    Urias vsPHI (Eflin)
    Mahle @MIL (Peralta)
    Pablo Lopez @CHC (Arrieta)
    I Anderson vsBOS (Richards)
    Bassitt @NYY (German)
    Bauer @ARI (Duplantier)

    Which 4 would you start?

    Also, how are you feeling about Ross Stripling? His numbers seem to be turning a corner and it looks like he could be in line for a good amount of wins going forward. I’ve got Luzardo taking up a spot in one league and I’m debating taking a chance on Stripling going forward.

    Sup Grey,

    In a dynasty league, I’ve been running India/villar at 2nd base for most of the year and have 5 OFs (Acuna, Soto, Teoscar, Adolis, and Verdugo).

    I just got offered Merrifield for Teoscar. Would you take that? Feel like I’m good on SBs with acuna, verdugo and trevor story but 2nd base has been killing me.

  102. Earl says:
    (link)

    At the risk of sounding kind of dumb, thought I would ask for some pitching advice for 5×5 roto weekly league.

    Which 3 of following would you start?:
    James Kaprielan @NYY
    Wade MIley @SD
    Hyun-Jin Ryu [email protected] and [email protected]
    Alek Monah [email protected] and [email protected]
    Sam Long [email protected] and possibly 2nd game but not sure yet

    I was perhaps thinking of Kaprielan, Long and either Ryu or Monah but really not sure. Not sure if I like MIley against Padres but not sure if it is just me.

    Anyway thanks for any opinions.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Ryu, Long, Alek, none of these are good except maybe Ryu

      • Earl says:
        (link)

        so u are maybe saying to perhaps go wth Kap, Miley and maybe Ryu of the 5 I mentioned??

        I do have Rodon and Trevor Rogers to start also as perhaps givens so maybe all is not lost??

        Thanks

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          No, you asked for 3 and I chose 3

          • Earl says:
            (link)

            Sorry man. I did not understand.

            Of the 5 that I mentioned at beggining and said to pick 3, you were saying to perhaps go with Long, Ryu and Monah and bench MIley and Kaprielan??

            Thanks again and sorry for my misunderstanding.

              Grey says:

    Hey! Thanks for a great article as always!

    I got offered 2 trade by one manager in my 10 team ROTO 5×5 OBP league:

    1) My Moncada, Adolis and Desclafani for his Scherzer, Lux and Mike Yaz (would need a 3B)
    2) My Adolis, Cease, DeSclafani for his Scherzer, Lux and Mike Yaz (would need another starter. Kikuchi is available)

    Thinking of doing the first trade and then picking up Donaldson or Biggio to cover 3B (i would need to drop Lux or Kirilloff) thoughts? how worried should I be about the potential injury to Scherzer?

Anyway, now I am wondering why Yahoo made him OF eligible this year? Since I have him I’m not complaining; just one of those things that makes you go Hmmm…

    He is no longer the highest paid player, but he’s got to be the highest paid DH-only.

    Thanks for lineup advice. Made some big trades in my keeper league this weekend

    Traded Bauer $17, Alex Reyes $2 and T Walker (taxi) for Vladito ($37) and Winker (taxi)

    Then traded Luis Robert ($27) and Snell ($24) for Jose Ramirez ($43) and Greinke ($12)

    Needed bats so snagged 3 Top 12s! Think sold high on Bauer and Reyes

    So for S & G’s I checked Matt Chapman and India in the trade analyzer for OPS and Chapman is barely an upgrade over India ROS – which I was surprised about. Since my league counts standard 5 batting cats plus Ks, ABs, and OPS. I figure to compare the two more:

    India assuming he continues to lead off should win in: ABs, Ks, Rs, BA, SBs
    Chapman should win: HRs & RBIs easily… coin flip in OPS

    You think I’m off anywhere? I’m leaning towards holding off on Chapman a little longer until we get some kind of confirmation he’s over that hip injury.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      No, but less of a track record and India could be a platoon player, out of the lineup or dropped down order in two weeks — Runs and SBs not huge to offset possible 30 Hrs and 80 RBIs

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        yeah – i’d feel better if those 30 HRs didn’t come with Crush Davis level Ks and a BA around the mendoza line

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, that could bounce back…India’s ceiling is pretty low

          • William Hung says:

            Well since I picked Chapman back up now – he’s probably gonna do like Travis Shaw did in 2019

    Last place team in H2H 5×5 where my first 5 picks were Trout, Bellinger, Devers, Ozuna, Maeda (hitting .200 is good this year, isn’t it?)…

    Hey Grey and Razznation. This team is sitting in 5th place in a 12 team 6×6 H2H. My offense has been disappointing with Rendon and Mondesi out often and Blackmon and Abreu starting slow.

    Do you think this offense is worth waiting on (Rendon should be better, Lourdes is heating up, Mondesi will play again…) or would you make a move for a bat?

    C – McCann
    1B – Abreu
    2B – Villar
    3B – Rendon
    SS – Polanco (just added)
    OF – Arozarena, Blackmon, Haniger
    DH – Yordan

    Bench – Brujan, Lourdes (added June 2nd)
    IL – Mondesi

    SP – Peralta, Giolito, Pablo, Mahle, Framber, Gonsolin, Minor (streamer)
    RP – Kenley, Clase, H. Robles
    IL – McCullers

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Should get better, and don’t think you have an arm to move…Maybe Framber, but you need him

    Have to love those weekend injuries where you don’t know if your guy is playing or going on the IL.

    Harper or Bellinger this week? Hitteron much prefers Bellinger but he’s stil D2D and unsure if he plays.

    I also took out Scherzer and put in Peralta. Agree?

    Happy National Bourbon Day Grey!!

    I plan to enjoy 1 or 4 bourbon drinks to celebrate.

    Anyway, my current roster is listed below & I’ve been rotating Schoop & Hampson as my starting 2b

    12-team, 6×6 (OBP/QS), H2H, Redraft league

    C: Vazquez
    1B: Alonso
    2B: Schoop
    3B: J. Ramirez
    SS: Story
    OF: Pham, Grisham, Upton
    UTL: Sano, A. Rosario
    BN: Hampson, Adolis
    SP: Castillo, Ryu , T. Rogers , Means, Morton, T. Walker, Canning
    RP: Diaz, DickRod, A. Reyes, Romano

    IL: Means, Conforto

    Question 1: Even though he’ll be playing the entire next week at home in COL is Hampson worth holding? It looks like he’s “getting the day off” again & India is available who has 2B eligibility.

    Question 2: Drop Canning to stream SP’s or hold?

    thanks as always!

      Grey says:

    Tucker davidson against Boston in braves stadium, is that a good matchup for him? Should I pick him up? 1.53 era, 0.93 whip, and all 3 of his earned runs in 3 games are from one game, as he held the Phillies and Nationals scoreless for 11.2 innings (only 1 walk and 4 hits against the phillies) he seems like an interesting player so far

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Not great, but it’s stream if you need it

      • Michael B says:
        (link)

        1. I dont really need it but would you recommend avoiding it or doing it and the gains would be not huge?
        2. Tucker davidson or Logan gillbert for possible long term pickups/stream depending on how they do, gillbert is against Tampa bay so neither are great matchups right now, but are either solid pickups longer term?
        3. Should I add schoop or india for either odubel herrera, austin hays, or robbie grossman? Grossman is pretty decent right now, hays hasn’t had much chance to prove much this season, and odubel is streaky with not a ton of power, pretty solid average and somewhat notable speed.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          1. Then don’t stream him

            With india and schoop are each better at certain things or Is india just better in general ? Could you let me know what india is better at and what schoop is better at?

    t.may’s been taken out of leverage, some of the time by loup, others lugo. tonight may’s in there with 5 run league in 7th allows 2 HR’s. loup came in for the hold after. after drafting may in most holds leagues (which most of my leagues are) i’ve lately in the last weekish dropped for somebody else, except here, NL only 10 team h2h with holds and saves sold separately and 4 RP slots. i have may, chafin, kimbrel, d-will (was dropped at the worst time to drop him, he’s been fine since then, esp since feyer traded to TB, he’s now the bar none 8th inning like last year)

    options over may: loup, givens (appears 2nd in line, but might be…), estevez, rainey (been fine since the 8th and hudson’s out, for sure tonight got the 8th in 1 run hold, did good), crick (PIT doesn’t tend to get holds, but he’s the guy if they do in the 8th), coonrod (alvarado’s also been very bad, getting very ERA lucky, and depthcharts have this dude ahead of brogdon), bender/bleier (both have done well but not 8th inning guys, mostly behind bass and floro),

    So excited I started gonsolin instead of gomber in NFBC this week!

      benching gomber at home made sense. starting gonsolin yet is gambling though.

    Good evening, Grey. Lost Benintendi, which sucks. Replacement options are Bryan Reynolds, Avisail Garcia, Jean Segura, Chapman or Cavan Biggio? Can move guys around to fill in at Util. Thanks!
