Rather than list fifteen closers that all became available in the last week, I’m going to tell you a story.  Ken you dig it?  Ooh, Giles (Things Are Gonna Get Easier) was a song they played at my prom.  This was going to be the best day of my life.  My date, Susie, had just broken up with her boyfriend, Jake, and she looked radiant that night, Barretts lined her hair like a crime scene.  Only not a bad crime scene like some gruesome murder, but instead like a yellow rose Tyler’d around another rose’s Thornburg like a noose.  A rose murder, which is heartbreakingly beautiful.  Also, in play on this great night was Prom King, I was going to Edwin it, right as I was Diaz’ing to the Macarena.  Wait, maybe my dancing would help me win a Tony too, ya know, this wasn’t elementary school my dear, Watson.  This felt like a scene out of an 80s movie with Charlie Sheen née Carlos Estevez.  When the announcement came, I held Susie’s hand, it was hot — 373 on the Kelvin scale — and her palm was Herrera.  Gadzooks, I exclaimed.  Then Jim won, and I went home with my Johnson, but no Herrera palm.  Oh well, guess I’ll have to take down my Cam I set up by my Bedrosian.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Joe Musgrove – I don’t want to oversell how good his debut was but it was the best debut in the last 130 years.  In 1886, a pitcher by the name of Colonel Tom Yangspool threw a two-hitter in his debut, but in 1886 pitchers threw a bowling ball and hitters used a fly swatter.  The nice thing about Musgrove is he has good command so he shouldn’t be prone to explosions.  The bad thing about that sentiment is the same could’ve been said of Jose Berrios and Aaron Nola.

Ivan Nova – The Stream-o-Nator loves his start on Saturday and I can’t tell if the bot is just lonely and hoping someone will ask him why it likes Nova so much or actually likes him.  Guess we’ll find out.

Jose Berrios – See what I said 1/4 of an inch above.  Or 3 inches if you’re talking to a girl.

Jose De LeonDodgers may promote him for Saturday’s start with Norris unable to go.  I’ve already given you my Jose De Leon fantasy.  It was written on the side of a milk carton, then lost for a few years.  Irony?  Perhaps.

Matt Moore – I just went over him this morning.  If you scroll real fast to that post, the disappearing ink won’t dry.

Tyler Skaggs – I’ve told you to pick up Skaggs about 1,700 times.  Plus/minus 1,695.

Gary Sanchez – Here’s what I said the other day, “Gary Sanchez sounds like the whitest Latino since Freddie Prinze Jr.  I’d grab Gary if I needed a catcher and if he had catcher eligibility in my league.  For full disclosure, I didn’t grab him in a league where I had Grandal.”  And that’s me quoting me!

A.J. Reed – Could Reed be the biggest bust since Billy Butler won a wet t-shirt contest in Cabo San Lucas last offseason?  Maybe, but it’s too early to say, and, instead, I’d grab Reed if I need some sweet upside.

Brandon Moss -You’d be happy as hell to get power in a deal, maybe your soul you’d sell, that’s the Moss appeal.

Pedro Alvarez – Has been crazy hot and you know the Hitter-Tron likes Alvarez like it likes laying pipe, literally.

Trea Turner – In the last week, Turner has been a top five 2nd baseman; in the last two weeks, he’s been a top two 2nd baseman; semicolons are fun.  If Turner keeps up his first month in the majors over the course of a season, he’s a 7 HR, 50 SB, .280 guy.  Yeah, that’s solid.  Unlikely, but solid.  More likely 12/35/.280, which is still top five for the position.

Orlando Arcia – I just gave you my Orlando Arcia fantasy.  I wrote it while waiting to get on the big water slide.

Yoan Moncada – Next week, he’ll prolly be the lede, if he’s not called up prior to that.  You have been advised, said like Nick Capozzi.

Scooter Gennett – Of course, he’d be more appealing if he were Motorcycle Gennett and wore a shirt that said, “If you can read this my middle infielder fell off,” but we have Scooter.  Deal with it.

Yasmany Tomas – Might be the hottest bat in the entire nation, and that’s including the fruit bat that John Malkovich keeps in his closet to suck his blood for old school transfusions.

Brad Miller – This guy’s been no schmohawk this year, and will likely fall into that group of players that people bring up next preseason about drafting them for a cheap 20 HRs.  These same people aren’t even owning Miller right now.

Eduardo Escobar – Hitting near-.350 with two homers in the last week, i.e. hot Edmotato.

David Dahl – I just gave you my David Dahl fantasy.  It was written while explaining the importance of a Skypager.

Aaron Altherr – Phillie fans are talking about the comparison between Altherr and ex-Phils’ outfielder, Aaron Rowand.  Okay, technically, Phils fans say, “Something-something Aaron,” then pass out in their own puke.  But I’ll be damned if they’re not thinking of a Rowand comparison.

Travis Jankowski – Nowadays, being in the top five for steals is like being the world’s tallest midget, but Jankowksi is going to be top five for steals against guys that have 200 more at-bats.

Aaron Judge – He was sidelined for about a month right after I told you to grab him because his ETA was imminent, the real Real Slim Shady.  Now Judge is back from injury, and the Yanks have no reason to not promote him.

Andrew Benintendi – Sell Benafflecki, Buy Benintendi was supposed to be the title, and the lede was going to be Benintendi, but I wanted to knock out a shizzton of closers without having to list them like I’m going to a supermarket for SAGNOF.  Benintendi is no less the pick up buried in this Buy.  If you’ve watched him, you’ll see a guy that doesn’t look like a huge power or speed guy.  And he’s not, from his minor league numbers.  He does look like a solid, five category contributor.  Think 25 HR, 20 SB, .280 and good counting stats.  I immediately grabbed him in my 12-team league, and I’d own him everywhere for at least a week or two to see if he comes on strong.

Kevin Kiermaier – I know, I just went crazy with The Prorater on Trea Turner, but Turner is a bit of a unknown, he doesn’t have three years under his belt.  So, with that said, I found this to be funny.  ESPN said about Kiermaier, “(His) walk rate has nearly tripled from last year, and if you prorate his six homers and 10 steals in 55 contests over 162 games, you get 17 long balls and 29 swipes.”  Hahahahaha–Breathe, Grey, breathe!  I’m sorry, you’re prorating Kiermaier over 162 games and getting a 17/29 season?!  Oh my God, that is silly.

SELL

Carlos Gomez – Up until this week, these sells were sells, but now they’re more drops, but I’m going to continue to call it Sell, for harmony with past posts.  As for CarGo (the lousy one), on our Player Rater, he’s ranked 413 overall.  You’ve given him so much rope he’s standing on the ground with the rope tied to the top of the Empire State Building.

Dallas Keuchel – You guys had a good run (last year).  Get his information and you can write him a postcard using the tears of fallen fantasy teams that he’s ruined.

Addison Russell – Who knows, maybe Russell can figure it out at some point, but right now he has 12 HRs and a .240 average.  That’s a poor man’s Scooter.  I will call him Shopping Cart.

    Yoan Moncada is rumored to b getting some time at 3rd. That would certainly push his ETA.

            @Grey: That’s a great way to put it. He’s considered the best hitter to leave the island in the last 5-10 years which is saying a lot but we’ll see.

    Insane to consider Porcello (19th round) and Realmuto (21st round) as keepers for next year due to great round ref if I’m short on options?

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Pretty insane but don’t know your options

      • JimmyJackJames says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks – other options would be high references like Cano in the 1st or Cain in the 6th. Though I know it’s crazy, my thought is pairing Realmuto/Porcello with the guys I get in rounds 1/6 is probably better value than vice-versa.

        Going for it this year so this is the price I pay but starting to debate it.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Cain and Cano are better

    Do we have a name for the phenomenon of a player getting benched at the last minute and one of your bench players (that you would have subbed in if you knew) having a big night?

    Triple B? Blue-Ball-Benching?

    I think this should be the Commentariat’s weekend homework.

    Bumpus Jones.

    Walked into the Cincinnati clubhouse on October 15, 1892 (last day of the season). Told mgr Charlie Comiskey he could outpitch anyone on the staff. Comiskey signed him and put him out there.

    No-hitter. For reals. It provided the final impetus for the biggest rule change in baseball history, moving the mound from 50 to 60.5 feet.

    Bumpus Jones.

      Bumpus would also be the kid’s name whose parents are way too into the Reds

  13. Brian says:

    strategy question. 6×6 h2h league. my pitching has been a dumpster fire lately. currently lead in saves (4-3) and Ks (37-35). I trail in ERA (4.99 – 4.29), WHIP (1.36 – 1.23), and K/BB (4.38 – 4.11). We’re tied in QS with 3 apiece. I have 5 pitchers left ([email protected], sonny gray v chc, price @ lad, duffy v tor, jaime garcia v atl), he has 6 (steve wright @ lad, arrieta @ oak, archer v min, bumg @ was, shields v bal, stroman @ kc).

    liriano and sonny are most likely going to get destroyed. but being that i’m already behind in the rate stats and his pitchers coming up are better than mine anyway, i feel like i have to start everybody and hope they pitch well enough long enough to at least help me in K and QS. what do you think?

    thanks grey

    • Grey

    Looking for saves myself! 10 team 5×5 full keeper add ? : Bedrock Jr or Thornburg? (We count holds).

    Thanks for the info!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thornburg

  15. Gus Pike says:
    (link)

    Thanks for all the work you put in Grey – awesome site.

    I’m down in pitching so am looking for help. Am also carrying 2 bench bats and no catcher. I hate carrying bench bats because I always bench the wrong guy. Would like to fix all of that, but don’t know who to drop.

    Not dropping
    Goldschmidt
    Arenado
    Rizzo
    Correa
    Travis
    T. Turner
    Stanton
    Polanco
    Villar

    Possible Drops (from my guess at least likely to most)
    Pence
    Dahl
    K Davis
    J Upton
    Belt

    On the pitching front my SP are: Duffy, Matz, Bundy, Taillon, Salazar (DL), Walker (DL)

    RP: Diaz, Estevez, Ramos, Dyson, Thornburg, Kintzler

    So, who can be dropped? For the record, since I picked Upton up, he’s hitting .276 with 10HR and 7SB in 174 AB

    My thoughts are Belt and maybe Kintzler (I’m first in saves would still have 5 closers).

    Jake Odorizzi is available and has been lights out, but gets the Jays next (who did strike out 60 times in 4 games vs Hou).

    Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Pence, Davis… Odorizzi is a streamer, he was good because it was good matchups

      • Gus Pike says:
        (link)

        Thanks re: Odorizzi….

        Your rest of season player rater has Belt lower than both Pence and Davis – I’m curious why you’re suggesting to keep him?

        @Grey:

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Belt’s more rounded than Davis, they’re a toss up to me… Pence is hurt and old

        Oh, and still holding Matz?

    Barney Miller Quote of the Day:

    Rhonda Haleck: My old man took me to ball game once when I was a kid. I think we saw the Mets and the Cubs.
    Wojo: Oh yeah, that’s always a good game.
    Rhonda Haleck: He got me a little pennant, a hot dog and a beer. We had really great seats.
    Wojo: Sounds like your dad was a nice guy.
    Rhonda Haleck: He was a mugger. Some guy he rolled had season tickets. Halfway through the game, a cop showed up. Dragged us both out of there.
    Wojo: Oh.

    Two questions sir.
    1. Is McCarthy a drop? Thinking of grabbing Dyson.
    2. Weekly league, lineups start on Monday. We start 5 outfielders. Betts, Polonco and Myers are in. Pick 2 of these 4. JD, JUP, Max and or Khris. Average is biggest need. I’m thinking JD for sure, and Max.

    • Crapshoot Kershaw says:
      (link)

      @Hieronymous Lohse: pitcher vs batter don’t mean anything, but trout is a top #1 player anyway. not surprising espn’s hacks use stats like that though. the same batter would probably need like 200 PA in the same year against the same pitcher for that stuff to mean anything.

      for an extreme example, if say heyward had those stats vs a pitcher and you had a trout today or heyward against that pitcher, what would you do? heyward’s been playing with a wrist injury all year from early april and of course you’d play trout even if it was against a pitcher that he was 0-50 against of course. he’s trout.

    What are your thoughts on Cobb Grey? Any value in redraft? Looks like he got up to 41 pitches yesterday and they plan on ramping him up further next time. It would seem like he possibly could be 2-3 weeks out…

      I wouldn’t touch him

  30. Greyyyyyyy! Whaaaaaaa! Yahoo has a red DTD next to Velasquez with NO INFORMATION about an injury! Don’t you hate when they do that?! Is it wrong that I want him to be injured so I can drop him for De Leon? Help meeeeeee!

      @Hugman: ESPN says blister and Velazquez is “optimistic” about making next start.

      • @B. Rabbit: Thanks, B. But now he won’t be able to spend all that time in the bullpen sharpening his pitches before his next start like he’s been talking about. Drop!

        • @Hugman: Ha. I just tried to add De Leon, and I can’t because I dropped him a few days ago, and he hasn’t cleared waivers. At least nobody will have him for the start he may or may not make tomorrow.

    • herschel says:
      (link)

      @Hugman: fwiw….Velasquez left his start Thursday after developing a blister on his right middle finger, Corey Seidman of CSN Philadelphia reports.
      Velasquez was allowed to finish the fifth inning after being examined by the Phillies’ training staff, but did not return to the mound in the sixth inning. He was likely done anyway due to an elevated pitch count. He said he expects to be able to make his next start Tuesday against the Dodgers.

    In a league where I need both saves but probably more an emphasis on IP to maximize counting stats for pitchers, what would you do with mauricio cabrera? Ive played the closer carousel (SAGNOF!) and am sitting on Gomez/Thornburg/Estevez/Herrera/Betances/Watson. Cabrera is pretty much an insta drop given i have ~60 saves for ROS?

    • Grey

      “In a league where I need both saves” Huh? Both saves and what?

      • Nation says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I must have skipped around before finishing the sentence…. whoops!

        I can make up ground in both saves and pitching counting stats (am currently about 80 innings projected under the innings limit so can use the wins and k’s). Just made a move to get Arrieta and Skaggs to partially address inning issue.

        My question ultimately being, should I hold on cabrera in hopes that johnson gets dealt imminently, or should i use his roster spot as more of a streaming spot.

        Thanks Grey!

    In first place in my keeper 4X4. Going to go down to the wire. I have a significant lead in Wins so I’m thinking of playing 5-6 closers down the stretch. I have an expensive but definitely keeper worthy Kershaw on my DL. Going all in … would you trade Clayton and various non entities for Skaggs, Ed Diaz, Herrera, Javy Baez and Dahl? Baez is a $2 keeper, the rest are rentals. Baez would upgrade Devon Travis. Dahl would upgrade Choo/Fowler. Are those significant enough upgrades?

    In a dynasty league (keep forever – no cost) would you trade Edwin Diaz to get Andrew Miller & David Robertson. I know it seems like a no-brainer, but both Miller & Robertson are 31, while Diaz is just 22 and looks electric as either a closer or a starter whichever path he goes down. What say you?

    In a separate Keeper league where we can keep up to 8 players, I have Jose Abreu as a guy that I kept this past year but I’m losing patience with him this year and I think he’ll be fringy to make my 8 keepers next year. Do you see a rebound either the rest of the year (to normalize his stats) or a bounce back next year?

    Do you like Devon Travis or Trea Turner better as a keeper 2nd baseman to roster?

    Okay Grey so I was in talks with the team below earlier today because I can’t seem to make a trade with anyone else and I know this guy really wants my Trout. He said he was considering trading me Harper and Price for Trout!? Should I do that deal? Also what complicates things a little bit is he was saying he’d want to do like a 3 for 2 deal since he doesn’t like bench players and said he’d wanna add one of Beltre, Braun or Herrra for a “pitcher worth a roster spot.” So I’m guessing I should take Braun there and which pitcher should I offer him with Trout? I’m gonna check with him soon and try make a deal sooner than later so I hopefully I can get your thoughts in time! I’m honestly not sure if he’ll still do it because last thing he said was “if stuff breaks right, I’ll strongly consider Harper and Price for Trout.”

    His team:

    (1) C: Contreras
    (1) 1B: Pujols
    (1) 2B: Pedroia
    (1) SS: Seager
    (1) 3B: Lamb
    (3) OF: Harper, Calhoun, Herrera
    (1) UT: Braun
    (5) Bench: Beltre

    (1) DL: Kershaw

    (4) SP: Price, F. Hernandez, Stroman, Maeda
    (3) RP: Rondon, F. Rodriguez, Herrera
    Bench: (Colome, Wainwright, Wright, Shipley)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sure, take Harper…. Paxton, Shoemaker, or any of the bench guys

      • ebudz says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Word, I was leaning towards doing it since hopefully the drop off from Trout to Harper isn’t too bad for this year and in future seasons, plus I get Price who I think is on the upswing? I feel like that’s the best deal I can get right now but ideally should I just shoot for 2 for 1 deal instead of a 2 for 3? Because then if I package away a pitcher too then although I’d get Braun, I’d be stuck with a bench bat. My only hope from that would be possibly trading an OF for another SP but not sure I sure hold my breathe on that.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Braun is solid if you can get him too

          • ebudz says:

Half ppr 14 teams. I just dont know if he will be this good for that long. Big ben and the back ups worry me , the fact they wont give brown his new deal I mean holmes, mike wallace, and now there going to let brown leave. Look what happened to the other two. That couldnt happen to brown even if they let him go, right?

There is no info there that helps me pick my roster. Its just a list. I was hoping you could do one.

            @Grey: Oops, just trade away Polanco for Buatista.
            Still need to keep power in OF. Springer / Polanco are similar (Springer is better). That’s why I choose JD (not Polanco) so far.

            Hopefully JD is getting better after injury.

    Thanks for the advice yesterday Grey and now I’m only down by 52 pts in my H2H points matchup … I have Skaggs going today as my 11th start and I’ll be able to stream up to 4 tomorrow… Hopefully I can acquire Price in a trade in time so I can use him tomorrow night but if not can you rank the 4 best starts out of the options below? The only wildcard might be Eickhoff because SON shows him starting Monday but baseballpress has shows him starting tomorrow?

    Pitcher Scoring: WIN (+3), LOSS (-3), IP (+3), K (+1), BB (-1), SAVE (+3), HOLD (+1), ER (-2), HIT (-1), NH (+10) PF (+15)

    8/7
    Bradley vs. MIL (12.6)
    Eickhoff @SD (11.2)*?
    Shoemaker @SEA (5.7)
    Carrasco @NYA (5.7)
    Paxton vs. LAA (0.2)
    Manaea vs. CHN (-0.7)
    Musgrove vs. TEX (-0.6)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d go with SON’s order… So Pax starts if Eickhoff doesn’t

      • ebudz says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Just got a chance to check back on this…

        So as of tomorrow I’ll have Price on my team and he’s starting tomorrow night @LAN (26.3) so I really only need 3 more out of the options below. Sorry to ask again but McCarthy has been add to the mix (no SON score yet) and I’m still not 100% sure if Eickhoff is starting tomorrow or if he’ll even clear waivers.

        McCarthy vs. BOS (?)
        Bradley vs. MIL (12.6)
        Eickhoff @SD (11.2)*
        Shoemaker @SEA (5.7)
        Carrasco @NYA (5.7)
        Paxton vs. LAA (0.2)
        Manaea vs. CHN (-0.7

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          McCarthy, Eickhoff, Shoemaker

          • ebudz says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Okay okay thanks! But now I realized I have a slight problem… my trade for Price is going to process hopefully minutes before the game start tomorrow and right now I’ve have two players pending being dropped so once the trade completes my staff will look like this:

            (4) SP: Carrasco, Price, Duffy, Shoemaker
            (3) RP: Robertson, Osuna, Giles
            (4) Bench: (Paxton, Taillon, Skaggs, TBD)

            DL: Salazar

            So you as you can see I’ll only have 1 room to add either McCarthy or Eickhoff and I will literally need to do it minutes before the games start which leaves a lot of time for other teams (maybe even my opponent) to add either or both of them! Ah what do I do? I’m currently down by 68 pts with Skaggs still left to pitch tonight and me coming back from this deficit isn’t looking good anyway but I don”t want to give up … so I’m torn because I guess I could drop Taillon, Paxton (if I’m not start him anyway?), or Skaggs now for McCarthy to ensure I have him for tomorrow but I don’t want to potentially lose a SP that could help my staff ROS…

            Here’s some other SPs who are available just for reference in my 10 team league if it helps: Walker, Pineda, Severino, Gausman, Bauer, Nova, Manaea, E. Santana, Ventura, M. Gonzalez, Ray, Rodon, J. Ross*, Nola*, T. Ross*, Chen*, Glasnow*, McCullers* …

                (link)

                @Grey: Okay and actually I just realized I didn’t plan that trade timing well at all because by the time it processes, rosters will have locked and I won’t be able to add anyone who is starting tomorrow in time.. So that means Eickhoff isn’t an option anyway so I guess I have to add McCarthy tonight but who do I drop?!

                • ebudz says:
                  (link)

                  @ebudz: Actually it boils down to who to start between:

                  Carrasco @NYA (5.7) or
                  Paxton vs. LAA (0.2)…

                  Right now I’m down by 44 so tomorrow I’ll have

                  Price @LAN (26.3)
                  McCarthy vs. BOS (?)
                  Shoemaker @SEA (5.7)

                  But in order to get McCarthy on my team I’ll have to drop one of Taillon, Skaggs, or Paxton?

    Happy Saturday!

    Need advice for the playoff push.

    I decided to carry bench bats and maybe an extra RP the past week just to see how things would shake out following trade deadline.

    A little worried about starting pitching. Was a strength for a good part of season. Recently not so much.

    12 team H2H 6X6 ( OBP/ QS)

    After a trade and a few add/drops this is what team looks like:

    1B- Goldy
    2B- Dozier
    3B- Longo
    SS- Seager
    OF- Harper
    OF- Marte
    OF- Crush
    Util- Villar
    Util- Kepler
    Bench- Dahl/ Khrush

    SP- Carasco (DL)/ Salazar/ Archer / Yu / Matz / Shoe / Iwakuma
    RP- Gomez/ Dyson / Ramos / Herrera / Giles

    Available SP: Bundy / Desclafani / Paxton / Davies / Gray
    Available RP: Allen / Johnson / Thornburg / Bedrosian

    At some point will need to open one if not two SP spots

    Any moves that need to be made immediately? Or roll with this a little longer?

    wouldn’t be cool if at least occasionally a really bad ump got outed by both teams. so that EVERY time a bad pitch call happened, the batter threw a fit, even when both teams knew they’d lose most of their rosters for that night. eventually the ump would be in fact blamed and the league would look bad, and they’d soon have to replace said terrible ump. only reason this doesn’t happen is that teams want to get wins and are happy when ONLY the other team’s players are thrown out. two teams out of making the playoffs however, could do this with shitty umps a LOT. eventually the whole “human element” of umps would be exposed as being what it is, inaccurate, non-needed garbage. up with lazers down with UMPS! (that sounds like a joke but i’m 100% serious about this last part)

  109. Pugs & Slugs says:

    I need to preserve WHIP and ERA. Ws and Ks are already mine. I have 2 bench spots and 5 SPs Sunday. I plan to start:
    Cole vs. CIN and Eickhoff @SD.

    Choose one to start: Hendricks @OAK, McCarthy @LAD, and Gray vs. MIA. I’m leaning to start Hendricks because he’s money, but SON doesn’t like his match up (-3.0).

    Thanks!

    • Pugs & Slugs says:

    Ugh Grey you’re going to kill me but I’m an idiot and I just realized my trade won’t process in time so no Price start for me tomorrow because I AM A MORON!

    10 team H2H Points (weekly 12 start pitcher limit)
    Pitcher Scoring: WIN (+3), LOSS (-3), IP (+3), K (+1), BB (-1), SAVE (+3), HOLD (+1), ER (-2), HIT (-1), NH (+10) PF (+15)

    (4) SP: Carrasco, Price, Duffy, Shoemaker
    (3) RP: Robertson, Osuna, Giles
    (4) Bench: (Paxton, Taillon, Skaggs, TBD)

    DL: Salazar

    SO here’s the deal.

    Down by like 50 so I need help deciding what I’m gonna do with my limited options for tomorrow in hope of making a comeback …

    McCarthy vs. BOS (?)
    Shoemaker @SEA (5.7)
    Carrasco @NYA (5.7)
    Paxton vs. LAA (0.2)

    1) I need to pick between two options here… which option will it be? A or B?

    a) Start them all but drop Skaggs or Taillon for McCarthy in order to do so. If yes then WHICH of Skaggs or Taillon would I drop to start Pax AND McCarthy there?

    b) Only drop Paxton for McCarthy and only start the following:

    McCarthy vs. BOS (?)
    Shoemaker @SEA (5.7)
    Carrasco @NYA (5.7)

    2) Depending on which option, is Carrasco a definite START in both of the above choices? Or only in one of them?

    I’m sorry if this is confusing and appreciate your help!

        (link)

        @Grey: Nooooo! I didn’t wanna risk not grabbing McCarthy so I ended up dropping Paxton for him last night… Fack. … So still drop Skaggs to stream one of :

        Bradley vs. MIL (12.2)
        Manaea vs. CHN (-1.8)

        or just hang roll without McCarthy, Carrasco, and Shoemaker and pray… I’m down by 43 actually…

    Sitting any of these guys today?

    McCarthy vs. BOS $11.5
    Paxton vs. LAA$-0.1

    Roark vs. SF $-12.9 (wow does SON hate this start!)

    Thanks as always Grey!

    • Bobbo says:
      (link)

      @Bobbo: actually I think I should sit them all. My opponent has Eickhoff left and at this point I am ahead 5-3 in wins, 72-54 in Ks, 1.11-1.18 in WHIP, and 3.29-4.89 in ERA.

      So the thing to do is sit them all, right? No way Eickhoff can make a difference for him. Thoughts?

    Please grey keeper picks end tonite. I never got an answer from the football links you sent me. Should I sign antonio brown to 4 yrs 63$. Or 3 years 58$. 2yrs 53$ or 1 year 44$.
    I decided to keep brandon marshall for a year at 30$ but do you think I should keep jermy hill instead. I need to sign hill or drop hill this year. He is 5$ for 1 year or 14$ for two yeears. Or 19$ for 3 year, or I can sign him 24$ for 4 years. Brandon marshall is 30$ for 1 year and next year I can sign him if I want.
    Would you keep marshall instead of signing hill and how long should I sign antonio brown for.

    • ganggreenn says:
      (link)

      @ganggreenn: the only real important question here is how long should I sign brown for . Is fouryears too long at 63$. I feel like I should do it but I dont want to be paying 63$ for a 30$ recievethree years from now. I really dont want to lose on hill niether for 24$ because I feel gio isgood today but not for long. I believe soon the bengals will lean veey heavily on hill.
