Hold the Internet presses (which is just posting a silly video; that makes the internet stop)!  Jonathan Villar isn’t owned in more than 50% of leagues?  That feels like a personal slight against my manhood.  And my manhood is already slight!  Hey, Previous Sentence Grey, not cool!  My bad, Next Sentence Grey, but you set yourself up!  This is like a Yo Momma episode on MTV where everyone called in sick so they had one schizophrenic guy play both sides.  Yo, Momma is so fat her blood type is gravy!  *same guy runs to other side*  Oh!  Oh!  Okay, well, your Momma is so dumb she drafted A.J. Pollock!  Snap!  *runs to the other side, but pulls hammy*  Yo Momma, shoot, can we pause?  My hammy’s torn. *collapses onto ground*  Don’t think MTV didn’t consider the one man Yo Momma show.  Insider talk, they are one of the cheapest channels.  It’s no surprise all of their shows star unknowns.  Okay, this is neither funny nor that illuminating.  I love Villar because SAGNOF.  I hear ya, prematurely balding man, what happens when Arcia is called up?  Well, we don’t know when Orlando Arcia will be called up and Villar can play 3rd (since everyone is over Hill, especially Aaron) or Villar can play 2nd, and Scooter’s a platoon guy that can’t always get it out of first.  Villar has 40-steal speed and should not be on waivers anywhere.  *pulled hammy Yo Momma guy pokes his head up*  Yo Momma is so ugly…Yeah, I can’t continue, my hammy is killing me.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Evan Gattis – Osso Buco was sent down to the minors to get a veal for catching.  When he returns, they’re not going to have him Milanese on the bench.   Hmm, maybe I shouldn’t write these with Giada on in the background.

Steve Pearce – This guy reminded me of Guy Pearce, which reminded me of one of my cheapest Halloween costumes ever.  I wrote in magic marker on my body, “Brush teeth,” “Comb hair,” “Go to the bathroom,” and other inane things to be the Memento guy.  As for Steve Pearce, yeah, he’s hot.

A.J. Reed – Arenthal James is going to be the lede in about two weeks when he’s healthy again.  At that point, it’s going to be hard to get him in competitive leagues, so act now.  Though, this admittedly could make it hard now too.

Aaron Hill – I mentioned Hill earlier as bound to lose playing time to Villar, and, yes, that’s true, but Arcia is not up in the majors now and Hill is schmotato’ing.

Derek Dietrich – His last name is the subject of 98% of all late-night informercials.  Lose weight or get rich.

Javier Baez – I like Baez a lot as a bench bat that you can play when he’s playing, but you will get an aneurysm trying to figure out when Maddon is going to play him and when he’s not.

Trea Turner – The hype will become more fevered as we get closer to June, so it depends on how quickly you need to react to pick up Turner.  He won’t be up for a month.  In some leagues, you can wait until the day he’s called up. In my leagues, he’s owned already.   You just need to react appropriately, unlike that time your girlfriend asked if she looked fat in that dress.

Jonathan Schoop – You know Schoop hits homers just for the smell of it, just for the yell it gets, right?  That does make you want a Schoop, doesn’t it?

Cheslor Cuthbert – He has playing time for likely the next month, has started hot, and has the Bat Signal on his chin!

Zack Cozart – Odd how long people are taking to grab Cozart.  I mean, he’s not the meow’s cat, but he’s hitting around .340 with power and batting leadoff.  With Cozart, what are you so concerto’d about?

Ketel Marte – Who’s house?!  This guy can run’s house!

Danny Santana – What’s funny (not funny), I still call him Dannys Antana and the reason I do that isn’t even a factor anymore.  Though, I guess Kendrys is still around.  The real reason was Kennys Vargas.

Marcell Ozuna – OZUNA not owned in 50% of leagues?  OZUNA has the feels.  OZUNA wonder if this is manopause.

Ryan Raburn – The Hitter-Tron pledged its love to Raburn this weekend.  It also rubbed Pledge on its metal naughty bits and humped a Ford Escort.

Avisail Garcia – I contemplated not even putting Avisail here because he’s so passive aggressive that once I mention him, he’ll stop hitting.

Adam Duvall – Great supporting player that just melts into any role you need him in.  And Adam Duvall’s solid too.

Steven Moya – Moya?  Oh boya!  He was called up on Thursday to face righties in the Tigers outfield.  *you thinking for longer than you should*  You, “Hey, there’s more righties than lefties!”  That’s right, you.  Moya should play a good amount of time.  So, why do we care?  He had nine homers in 31 Triple-A games.  Well, hello there!  Not a hirame, either.  He had 20 homers in Triple-A last year, 35 homers in Double-A and ZiPs projects him for 17 homers in the majors this year.  I don’t think there’s any fantasy leagues where he can’t at least be a flyer for power.

Jackie Bradley Jr. – Here’s my dog, Ted, with some JBJ news:  Ted Talks!

Aaron Hicks – His playing time is going to suffer when Ellsbury returns, but there’s at least a 60% chance that Ellsbury returns and realizes he shouldn’t have returned and needs a DL stint.

Hector Neris – Jeanmar’s not very good.  Is Neris that great?  Well, said Ronald Reagan, I wouldn’t go that far.  But the Phils seem to want to work Neris into the closer role.

Trevor May – Jepsen is hot garbage under the seat of your car while it’s parked in the Mojave, and Perkins has arm issues, so I’d stash May.

Brad Boxberger – He’ll be the closer when he returns next week.  Nobody puts berger in a box!  Nobody puts Brad in a Boxberger?  Hmm, I’ll work on it.

Sam Dyson – It’s only a matter of time until Dyson is the closer in Texas.  By the power vested in me by the state of Calli-forn-ya, I now pronounce Dyson SAGNOF worthy.   You may kiss your cheap saves.

Jameson Taillon – Word on the streets of Pittsburgh, Pee Aye, is that Taillon will be up before Glasnow.  Wouldn’t surprise me.  Niese is garbage that you shape in the form of a nose and Locke is no, uh, lock.  Right now, Taillon is dancing through Triple-A like it’s Powderpuff baseball — 1.69 ERA, 4 walks in 37 1/3 IP.  I’d stash him now in deeper leagues.

Kevin Gausman – When it comes to picking up a guy, y’all have the reaction time of Robert De Niro from Awakenings.

Nathan Karns – Prolly too late to get him for his start today in many leagues, but, assuming that goes well, he gets the Orioles in B-More next and that’s an awful start.  Okay, in deep leagues, stash Karns for when he’s at home, but he’s still a streamer in shallower leagues.

Clay Buchholz – I hate ‘hholz.  A true hate ‘hholz’er.  A severe dislike.  But the Stream-o-Nator likes him tomorrow, and I could see streaming him in an H2H league where you need starts for the week.  I need a dentist/proctologist because I have caveats with my Butthurtz!

SELL

Dallas Keuchel – Ah, yes, the patented sell low.  It was patented by the Native Americans when they sold Manhattan for $24, but, since they invested that $24 wisely, it’s now worth over one-point-two billion in accrued interest.  Can you get that sorta return from Keuchel?  Aw, hellz no, Unkie Biscuitpants, as my 14-year-old nephew texts.  Keuchel’s garbage.  His stats aren’t screaming for a turnaround.  Sure, he’s prolly not a 5.58 ERA pitcher, but his velocity’s down, walks are up, Ks are down, ground balls are down, but not in the way you want them so actually up.  It’s all bad news.  If you can finagle like a lousy bagel and sell him for anything, I would do it.  Let him be someone else’s problem.

Daniel Murphy – A sell couldn’t happen to a nicer guy!  We’ll leave aside his salt of the earth qualities, and I mean salt there like how when you have too much of it and it gives you the Gas Face and makes you pucker like your dog farted into your mouth.  Let’s not even take into account my feelings on Murphy’s rest of the season projections.  ZiPS has him down for 11 homers, 7 steals and a .300 average.  Um, Yunel called and said stop stealing his trademark bleh stats.  Steamer has Murphy down for 8 HRs and 5 SBs with a .311 average and Yunel called and said, “Hey, that’s me when I’m hurt!”  I know, Yunel should mind his own bee’s wax.  You know who never minds their own bee’s wax?  Bumblebees.  You say ironic, I say, I don’t know what ironic is because I’m not British.  If you are British, go set up a limeade stand on your front porch and fight neighborhood scurvy.  Murphy is also hitting near-.400, and it’s silly to even point out how obscenely lucky he’s been, but he has been obscenely lucky, and, yes, I’m silly.  Would I trade Daniel Murphy for a pair of Ewings by Villa?  Nope!  Ewings worn by Bob Vila?  Well, maybe, and I’d try to sell him high.

    Tommy Joseph getting called up by the Phillies today, C eligibility. Worth a pick up and stash?

      Grey says:

      @primetime: Any relation to Caleb? Worth a pickup, sure, not over 95% of catchers though

      • knucks says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Nope no relation. Asked this myself. Saw him play a few times this year for the Ironpigs. While he was exciting to watch down there, I don’t even think Ralph brought him up the other day. The only part that’s even remotely interesting right now for fantasy is the catcher thing. He’ll split time with howard and this question is better served if/when he starts out hitting the ball in the next week or so… Unless your in some kind of super deep format. You have no idea how great a pork themed minor league baseball team is by the way!

        • Grey

          Haha, yup, makes sense

    My team desperately needs strikeouts. Would I be crazy to trade my grossly underperforming Justin Upton for the grossly underperforming Zack Greinke?

  7. knucks says:
    (link)

    I promise to drop the pork roll thing after this, but I just want to put it out there. The bar I’m headed to after work serves “dirt burgers”. More easily identified as a burger with, you guessed it, pork roll on top. Is this new to you or just me?

    Also the Ted link is downright priceless. The only way that could possibly be any better is Ted’s buddies in the background for support, wearing gold chains and kangol hats. Will use this to try to convince my sig other that we need a dog. It will not work. May actually work against me being allowed to fantasy baseball so hard.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      That sounds delicious… The great thing about pork roll is it’s absolutely impossible to ruin, so you can go to a place where the cook has 15 minutes of experience, and it’s delicious… I remember getting it at church bingo games with my grandmother when I was a kid, it was so good… You need a mutt that can talk baseball though, as Ted

        @Grey: Yea the cat is more of an opera connoisseur. Have a tough time relating recently. Hopefully just a phase

          Hate to generalize, but sounds like most cats

          • knucks says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Its okay, they are not people. You can def make plenty of comments/generalizations over the internet that you wouldn’t about a person.

            This cat’s name is David Bowie, due to the lightning shaped stripe across is one eye. Pretty bad ass. Him and his opera buds do a killer rendition of starman that rivals yesterday’s Prince link. Which was phenomenal. And yes we got him prior to it being almost as cool to love Bowie as it was in the 80s.

            • Grey

              Grey says:

              Not a cat person, but that does sound like a good one

              • knucks says:
                (link)

                @Grey: So much less of a cat person than you. I guarantee it. Although that doesn’t really make sense if there is one that I’m expected to feed (that I also named) sitting on top my car at 7am every morning before I go to work.

                Cats. The only downfall about the woman of my dreams. At least I got a David Bowie out of it.

    Whats happen’ Grey…hope alls razztastic your way. Question based on your buys, I have one bench spot open…better add for this team? Ozuna, stash AJ Reed, Gattis or handcuff Dyson…closers are not available in this league on the wire…like never. Additionally I could drop Chen who I streamed this week and add 2 of them, but after trading Vizcaino and Gausman for Melancon, I’m worried about the overall quality of my staff.

    Don’t feel bad Grey, I picked up Villar earlier this week per your recommendation. I’m one of the 50%. I almost pulled the trigger on Reed, but then he got hurt. I think you’re right though. Now may be the time to move.

    PS. Rudy says he can write better Titles than you. Them’s fightin words! For what it’s worth, I would have went Brooke Shields…

    @Grey: My pitching is really slumping – my staff currently:
    SP: Archer, Salazar, Walker, Cole, Berrios, Hendricks
    RP: Allen, Rodney, Tolleson, Colome, Cingrani, Jepsen
    DL – Eduardo Rod

    1. Do you know when E-Rod will be activated from the DL? Should I drop Cingrani or Jepsen for Raisel Iglesias as my new DL stash when this happens. Jepsen hasn’t had a save opp in what feels like a month.
    2. Are my guys just slumping or is something else going on? Archer and Cole have not been good relative to expectations. I’m riding Berrios one more time before jumping ship. I already cut bait on Carlos Rodon.
    3. I’m cursed with my pitching – I feel like Hendricks might be my best starter and I just picked him up as a FA before his last start, which the Cubs blew and cost me a win.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. I’d lose Cingrani…E-Rod I think within the week 2. I’d lose Berrios before Cingrani 3. Just slumping

    Grey!

    Great buy column! Already have a few of your buys and will be keeping them until they expire!

    Have a great weekend.

    Going to the farewell party of a colleague who is leaving the mission, going to Sitwe in Myanmar (to bad he couldn’t go to JeanMar). Anyway, with his departure the % of white folk in the office goes from 6% to 4% as his replacement is from northern Uganda. Hard to get anyone qualified to come out here to work because of the isolation so no one asks any questions such as:

    a. Are you single?
    b. Are gay or straight?
    c. Are you lactose-intolerant?
    d. Are you going to pull a Caitlyn?
    e. Are you a psychopath / sociopath?

    Just c/p the Ketel blurb into every Friday afternoon column until he is 100 % owned. Alright I may be slightly overstating my love for him. Which started last August-ish thanks to you.

    He was just dropped in my most competitive league by the guy who drafted him… For Will Harris!! I get he could maybe be kinda useful or whatever, but we don’t even do Holds. Time to bust out the FAAB wallet. Though i dunno where he play with Villar in my SS slot. It’ll figure itself out eventually.

  23. Good afternoon, Grey. Carlos Gomez is making that crystal ball of yours look valuable. Dropped in many of our 12 Team leagues would you gamble (nice job this morning Rudy, btw) on a waiver grab over 4-5th OFs like Souza and Parra? Or would maybe a Moya (or AJ Reed @ Util) be a wiser stash?? Thanks & happy Friday the Thirteenth!

          He’ll be okay, but if Roark is still on waivers in your league there’s no reason to hold Gray

    Just trying to do the responsible thing and help my razzball brethren out here. In case anyone is in fastest finger leagues.

    Hey Guys, wondering your thoughts – I’m down a 3B for at least a week or two while Moistasskiss is on the DL. Assuming any of these guys are better than an empty roster spot, who would you prioritize as a waiver claim?

    Prado
    Yunel Escobar (though now I see he hurt his thumb)
    Freese
    Sean Rodriguez
    Aaron Hill

        @Grey: Thanks! I could do Cheslor, but my worry is that it would be useful to use whoever I pickup as a 3B backup moving forward also (I had Adonis, but he’s now in the minors).

    I’m in all keepers 10-team league with 5×5 including QS.
    My pitching scores are weak but trade isn’t popular in the league.

    Learnt Giolito is good to be an ace so I want him to join my team.
    Is it too early to stash Giolito ? When will he called up you think?

            i can wait if it’s June.
            People in my league love starters so much, i have only two starters and then streamer but usually stream nothing (even i follow SON)

            How do you think Giolito worthy stashed or not in one month in all keepers league? (which means i can keep him forever if he will be that good like an ace)

                How do you think if I stash Glasnow in the same situation? All keepers 10-team league with QS and W. I need good starters and my pitching scores are weak…

    Well here’s to the weekend…just pulled this one off in keeper league…I give T.

Im fucked for saves for the time being but have Dyson, Strickland and Giles on the squad with Perkins on my DL…hopefully these guys close sooner than later but there was no way i was passing up that deal for the bag of shit i gave up.

    delino’s finally completely F’ed. gotta hold in 2/3 of the dynasties i traded for him in l suppose (16 and 20 team leagues, had already dropped (in a 12’er where burns was around)). had a window of about 2 days in which i could’ve dropped him in an AL only for hicks, but not now. best replacement option (clearly some speed and certainly playing time is a big concern)
    reimold, guyer, e.carrera, byrd (doesn’t play enough at all), tucker (no speed, but probably best overall hitter), rosario (losing playing time), stubbs, rua. i grabbed guyer for today (OBP over average, net steals over steals, 7 moves per week h2h)

    I was offered Brandon Phillips for cingrani and Schoop. I don’t care much about cingrani but that’s a no brainer right? Schoop is my starting 2B. Thanks!

    So I guess the rule is don’t ever start pitchers going against Cubs, Red Sox, and in Colorado.

    Well, I have Lance McCullers going tonight so I’ve shat all over my own rule.

      Gotta check that wind on Wrigley day games. It’s gusting at 18 MPH today. Not sure how Hammel is avoiding it’s wrath, but it was a risky start for both today I think.

        @MattTruss: while that is absolutely true about the wind in Wrigley (it turns into Coors real quick), I think this Cubs team can light it up anywhere at anytime.

Hah so they are talking about the Shelby Miller trade on the radio today after someone called it ‘one of the worst trades in the last 25 years’…I have a hard time disagreeing, I hated the trade then and now it only looks worse. WTF were they thinking, Shelby Miller sucks, I wouldn’t have traded Swanson for him straight up let alone throw more into the deal. That was pretty much the final straw for me ever caring about that idiotic team again, it’s been one moronic trade after another for like the last decade. I can root for bad but I can’t root for stupid. All I can say is I hope they keep losing so everyone sells their seats for dirt cheap later in the year. Maybe then I’ll go to the game to get drunk and boo their sorry asses.

    Some random crap:

    Miggy’s career BA against the Orioles coming in to yesterday: .391

    Brett Cecil was the first pitcher ever to lose 5 games in April.

    Mickey Mantle had a legendary knuckleball. Threw it in warmups all the time.

    Chipper Jones hit so well against the Mets that he named his son Shea.

    The Cubs run differential is +99. If the Atlanta Braves had a team ERA of 0.00, they would have a run differential of +102.

    Jose Altuve has 22 HR+SB. Nobody else has more than 15 (Harper).

    Yadier Molina and David Ortiz have more steals than Ben Revere.

    The Reds lead MLB in HRs allowed 1.9 per 9 and BB per 9 @ 4.33. So if you’re looking for a place to stream hitters…

    Jake Arrieta’s ISO is .188…or .001 better than Edwin Encarnacion.

    Delino optioned to AAA. Hate to say I told me so. Sent down for SS converted to reliever and Matt Bush, whose history reminds me of one of my favorite trivia questions: What 5 former Cy Young award winners have been convicted of a felony: Denny Mclain, Fergie Jenkins, Vida Blue, Lamar Hoyt and Doc Gooden.

    Speaking of Dallas Keuchel (we weren’t) the worst ERA in history for reigning Cy Young winner was Mark Davis, Padres reliever (also the worst Cy Young recipient of all time) at 5.11. Keuchel currently sitting at 5.58.

    Happy Friday Grey! Glad we got a post from you today. The week days are not complete without them.

    NL-Only H2H (OBP) Keeper.
    I’m still looking to make my team stronger, but am unsure if I really need to do much given a poor FA pool and other teams over/undervaluation of players when making deals.

    My offers of Nicasio/Drury and Nicasio/Lamb were recently rejected. He’s worried about Nicasio’s innings limit. He would be “more inclined” to deal Lamb($8) if it were Hendricks or Pomz.

    Of the following options, which do you think make my team better overall?
    A) Make a play for Drury first with Pomz, followed by Lamb. Although, I’m really beginning to like Pomz.
    B) Try Finnegan, then Nicasio for Dietrich.
    C) Hold and try to make a deal for Pollock in a Month or so once teams are out of the race and are looking for a keeper.
    D) See how Finny does tonight in Philly. If he doesn’t do well enough to earn another start on my team, dump him for Matt Adams and roll with a full roster.

    I’m leaning toward B and C because they seem safer and allow me to roll with 8 starters, but I also like the risk of A and D.

    Ca Castillo
    1B Goldschmidt
    2B LeMehieu
    3B Franco
    SS Villar
    INF Piscotty
    OF Ozuna, Santana, Duvall, Pollock
    Util. Scooter
    SP Arrieta, Cole, Hendricks, Velasquez, Pomz, Nicasio, Eickhoff, Finnegan
    RP Rondon, Vizcaino, Strickland, Neris

    Thanks!

      Trumbo for both?

        (link)

        @Grey: I like that but don’t want to give up Trumbo’s power and replace him with Carter for Seager (R and AVG), Archer K’s but only 10-13 wins. Carter and Mazara?

        This is his team:

        Lineup: Vogt Freeman Murphy Seager Sano Braun Jones Reddick Granderson Hamilton
        Bench: LeMaheui Parra Duda DL-Choo

    It’s really funny how fantasy baseball works…
    I drafted Conforto late thinking “what the heck, I’ll take a flyer, he has major potential”

    – Starts off 5 for 20 with no hr and 3 rbi. So I drop his ass.
    – Proceeds to destroy baseball and goes 22/54 with 4 hrs, 15 rbi
    – Pick him back up and then he goes 5/38 with 1 hr.

    What I’m trying to say is I’m sorry guys for screwing things up

    @Grey: Here’s a move I’ve been pondering – Drop Chris Carter for Khris Davis. Or do I just bench Carter until he gets hot again? Charlie Blackmon is my current UTIL so I can ride Carter as my lone bench bat.

      @William Hung: C. Carter seems to be slowing down a bit. I go with Krush.

    Grey,
    Do we dare switch out M. Franco for Villar? I have him on both my 12 Team H2H with OPS and my 10 Team H2H Points. By the by, my offense on my H2H (12 Team) is absolutely putrid.

    One more please – drop Severino or Tolleson to make room for McCullers.

    Thanks much Grey.

    • Yankee My Wanky! says:
      (link)

      @Yankee My Wanky!: Come to think of it, I’m thinking dropping both would be a good move. Severino sucketh!

    12-team H2H OBP keeper league. 2017 round value listed next to names

    Got offered Stras (1), JUp (3) and Pomeranz (23) for my George Springer (17).

    I do need SP but I’m always hesitant to trade away such a big bat. Current SP are Kershaw, Aaron Sanchez, Hendricks, Wood, Estrada and Corbin. My other OF are Betts, Belts and Braun

    Da fuq Delino here. 12 team, 5×5 roto. I’m in 2nd place and its my ERA and WHIP holding me back (albeit a lot more today because I started Liriano). Would you make a move for an arm at this point or hold? I think I could trade my Upton for Scherzer. Relevant parts of team looks like:

    OF- Marte, Upton, Belt, UTIL- Pujols BN- Khris Davis
    SP- Kluber, Liriano, J. Ross, Rodon, (stream spot), DL- E-Rod

    So, I would slot Khris Davis in as everyday starter.

    In this close of matchup should I pickup and stream Buchholz vs. HOU today and then also stream Wood on Sunday? IF yes, is Rodon still the best drop or maybe Odorizzi/McCullers ? FWIW Rodon is vs. HOU (5.4) next while Odorizzi is @TOR (1.9) and not sure about McCullers…

    dropped f.wall (2B COL) to stash delino
    got an offer of a.diaz for saunders. even with the playing time concerns of superfluous H coming back due to dynasty this is an easy yes right? team is in 8-10th this year. superfluous H’s contract runs out this year as well, and i’m betting it’s likely diaz steals at bats from wong at 2B coming up.

    Would you drop Jepson for (need saves…at some point):
    May
    Dyson
    Cingrani

    Also, better prospect-arm for Twenty-16:
    Blake Snell
    Jameson Taillon

      @DancinHomer:

      Just read some more of the above comment and see that my 2nd question was already answered (Taillon > Snell). So, no need to answer that one a 2nd time.

      Thanks

      • Knucks says:
        (link)

        @DancinHomer: it’s hard to drop the guy getting saves for the guys who might get them down the road… Twins are so bad. Peacecoast noted earlier that May doesn’t even have a hold! I would forget the Reds pen for now.

    • Troy: The Collector

      Troy says:

      @DancinHomer: need saves find a way to add all 3 but without dropping jepsen. Read smokes bullpen report may is very good regardless of if he has a hold or not. Hell be closing games at some point this year. Same with dyson, I still believe in cingrani skill set as well.

      Dyson….Taillon

    hearing some not so optimistic comments about ERod and his rehab and whether he comes back right away…
    Would you rather have Jon Gray or Rubby over ERod right now or ROS? or stash Taillon? Who else would you replace on my SP staff?

    12T mixed my staff is: Carrasco (DL), Stroman, Matz (elbow), Rodon, Velasquez, Chen, Pomeranz, Iglesias (DL), Karns, ERod (DL)

      @Wilson: I’d have to say k davis but I wouldn’t feel great dropping any of them for upton right now. But u need to find a way to add him somehow. Drop ur 7th or 8th sp for him or a rp that isn’t closing if u got it. If u have a back up c as well drop that over them

      • Wilson says:
        (link)

        @Troy:
        Thanks for answers.
        I can drop a unstable closer (eg, McGee) for J Upton.
        But my OF is crowded… I also have Springer, Polanco, JD (and Heyward, K Davis, Mazara)
        Except JustDong, My OFs are with leg and few power, so I want a power guy.
        That’s also why I actually don’t want to drop K Davis, especially Heyward sucks this year…and Mazara seems not that special.. (?)

        Tough call. Thoughts appreciated.

    Grey,

    I was just looking at Keon Broxton’s AAA stats since his demotion, and he’s been en fuego (still a ton of Ks though). At what point do you see him being brought back up? He’s keeper eligible ($3) in our NL-Only league, and while he’d be my 4th Brewer, there’s always a chance for lightning in a bottle that I could flip come the trade deadline or my keeper while I flip a different Brewer.

    Thanks!

    Grey,

    I need your guidance. After this week, I’ll be .500 and I’ve got a couple trades on the table. Which would you choose:
    A. I trade Tulo and get Cole Hamels and the current closer for TB (era help would be nice)
    B. I trade Tulo, Mookie, Duda and J. Upton and get Cespedes and Autuve (AVG and steals would be a big plus for my offense.

    I’m leaning towards option A and trying to shop elsewhere for a bat/steals

    SS-M. Semien
    MI – J. Schoop

    On the wire:

    Grey, My low end Pitching is struggling (ruining all my good starts), you see any solutions:
    Low end SP’s: B. Finnegan, Jerad Eickhoff & Empty bench spot
    Waiver: N. Karns, A. Wood T. Chatwood, A.J. Griffin, A. Colome, S. Kazmir, C. Bucholz, N. Eovaldi, W. Miley, E. Ramirez, M.Perez, R.A.Dickey, D. Fister, B. Colon, A. Cashner, T Bauer

    I don’t mind waiting for SP’s to develop if there is potential (I’ll just stash them on my bench) as I have B. Snell on my bench and Homer Bailey on my DL. I don’t need to turn around my pitching in a day but more less have something to work with for the second half.
    thanks man

    Thinking Jon Gray might be real deal after last night? Strand rate only 60.9%, WHIP at 1.15 with 3 of 5 starts at Coors. 36 Ks in 29 IP, xFIP at 2.17 which in Coors can be deceiving using the league average HR portion of the equation, but still, If he can put up a low 3 ERA, his offense should rack him up some wins as well.

    Hi, are you worriedabout Heyward?

    My OFs are Springer, J Upton, JD, Balckmon, Mazara, Heywad, but i’d want to lose Heyward.. he really sucks..

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah

      • Wilson says:
        (link)

        @Grey:
        If worried about Heyward. will you drop him if you were me? (Tried trade , but prolly trade for nothing)

          Grey says:

          Nope

    Thoughts on Matt Andriese? Has potential to shine, or potential to roofy? I havent seen much positive scouting reports or minor league stats on him.. but he is saying how his relief appearances last year “really helped him.” Worth holding onto over a guy like Sean Manaea ? Thanks.

    Hey Grey,

    Who do you like better today, Joe Ross vs Miami (J-Fer) or Gausman vs Detroit (Fulmer)?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Gausman

      • GrassyKnollRedding says:

        @Grey: Yikes. Rough outing so far.

    Woke up to a couple of trade offers from an owner this morning, still groggy –

    His – Polanco, Hendricks and D Santana for my Desmond, Eickhoff and Martin

    or
    His Darvish, Souza and D Santana for my Desmond, Eickhoff and Peralta

    Do you like either one?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Take Polanco

      • mr. west says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks!

          No problem

  229. Dawson says:

    Need wins/quality starts/ and era/whip
    Starting gausman vs Detroit?

      Davis

  231. Josh-NYC says:
    (link)

    So do you like manaea, straily or dickey over my andriese or devenski, or hold?

    I know most of these guys are hot garbage but it’s a deep league and these are bottom end guys.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Hold

    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: Scherzer, Salazar, Matz, Walker

    Bench: (Gausman, Hill, McCullers, Odorizzi, A. Wood)

    (1) DL: Carrasco

    Okay Grey what’s the better strategy today… I’m up by 24 and my opponent will be starting deGrom @COL and Lester vs. PIT while my plan was to just start Gausman vs. DET …

    I picked up Alex Wood yesterday to potentially stream him tonight vs. STL (9.8) and that game is late so is it better to wait to see how the day games pan out and then only start Wood if I’m losing tonight? Or should I drop Wood now and instead stream Straily @PHI (6.9) during the day games and hope he doesn’t get me negative points and/or outscores what Wood would score?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, don’t start anyone until you see how your opponent does… So hold Wood, hehe

    Two roster moves

    1) drop Roark for hill
    2) drop Carson smith for Verlander

    Thoughts on high moves? Thanks in advance

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Sure…Okay

  236. Fred Garvin MP says:

    I expect Plawecki to have a good day, if for no other reason than I dropped him for Jason Castro (yuk) because I didn’t expect him to catch the day game after a night game.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I bet he doesn’t play today

      @Fred Garvin MP: wait to make the moves when you see the lineups.

    Happy Sunday, Grey!

    Better stash for a 12-teamer with QS: DeSclafani or ERod?

    Also, same league has OBP instead of AVG. Drop Carter, Duda or Ozuna for Choo?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Prolly DeSclafani…. Nah on Choo there

  241. Brett says:
    (link)

    Grey,

    How do you see the reyes situation working out? Will he be able to play on June 1? Does he get traded soon? Sure you will discuss tomorrow, but curious what your thoughts are?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      He’ll be traded

  242. PB&J says:
    (link)

    My Schoop and Joe Ross for his Sale? I’d have to pick Semien up off of waivers to fill MI.

    On the subject of the brother Ross, dump Tyson to stash Taillon? I already have two DL spots filled with Iglesias, Darvish, and Moustakas.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sale, not close

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      And yes stash Taillon

  243. muskysmell says:
    (link)

    terrible game by Gausman today…looks nothing like his past starts.

    strangest thing is his lack of Ks…I mean, you throw 96+, how do you not bump in to at least one strikeout the whole outing.

    • muskysmell says:
      (link)

      @muskysmell: and finally K’s one there. whooptie do.

    • GrassyKnollRedding says:
      (link)

      @muskysmell: Well said. Even ice-cold Upton was 2 for 2 with a walk against him. Didn’t see this coming.

      • muskysmell says:
        (link)

        @GrassyKnollRedding: Yea, and he gave up a double to Upton on an 0-2 count…ugh

        But the hilarious thing is that Gausman may end up winning this thing lol

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Agreed

  244. dds says:

    Alex wood vs cards or degrom @rockies?

    Trying to pick up a batty call for tomorrow, several options looking mighty delicious. OBP league. Thoughts?

    K.Davis vs. Holland (Holland has been extraordinarily bad)
    D.Valencia vs. Holland (Same deal, but Valencia is white hot)
    Bour vs. Eickhoff (Has a couple hits off him, does well in PHI)
    Steven Moya vs. Berrios (power lefty facing a rookie RHP)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Valencia

  248. ThE sHiT says:

    Damn Valencia is on a tear! Pick him up over Drury or Moya?

    Bit of a brawl in Texas. Bautista, Gibbons, and Odor probably getting suspensions.

    • Kid A says:
      (link)

      @VinWins:

      Joey Bats got his clock cleaned by Odor.

      Absolutely beautiful.

    • Grey

      (link)

      Odor’s getting suspended for a very long time

      • letsgobravos says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Damnit. How many games do you think it will be?

  252. muskysmell says:
    (link)

    gdamn….my pitchers this week:
    55.1 innings
    34 earned runs
    4 blown saves

    went from dominating pitching all year with a 2.7 ERA ytd to 4th in ERA at 3.3
    – all in one week.

    Chavez, too, now.

    how long of a suspension we looking at for odor?!

    • VinWins

      @ebudz: 10 games.

    • Kid A says:
      (link)

      @ebudz:

      Doing the quick math on my Nolan Ryan Abacus gives a result of 5 games – before dividing by zero.

      • VinWins

        @Kid A: You really think he gets no suspension?

        • Kid A says:
          (link)

          @VinWins:

          More of a comment on proper justice considering the slide into the base and Jose’s had it coming for awhile.

          I think 10 is the over/under.

          • VinWins

            VinWins says:

            @Kid A: Ah, I see.

    • Grey

      Guessing 20 games

      • VinWins

        VinWins says:
        (link)

        @Grey: So , I should be trading him, I guess.

      • Kid A says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        Before we rush to judgment we need to look at intent and whether Odor was pissed at the slide or was just looking for an excuse to knock those stupid fucking Oakleys off his face.

        Former = 10 games.
        Latter = Pay raise.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Haha… Agreed, hoping for 10 games only, but it was such big news they might throw the book at him due to the publicity it caused…Just speculating of course

      • letsgobravos says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Damn, 20 games would be a serious blow to Odor owners.

  257. Bobbo says:
    (link)

    12 team 5×5 h2h
    Rostering Snell and someone dropped Glasnow. Glasnow’s the better stash right? How long until he gets called up you think? Wire’s full of junk so I’m not missing out in anything there.

    • muskysmell says:
      (link)

      @Bobbo: That’s debatable…Snell and Glasnow both have huge upside but we have no idea how each will turn out this year so the difference is negligible.

      Taillon is expected to be up first fwiw and has the best control out of the 3 albeit with less strikeouts (so not as sexy). You may want to give him a look.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah

  258. muskysmell says:
    (link)

    HOLY SHIT, I just saw the punch….OMG, that’s gotta be at least 20 games…I’ve never seen anything like it in baseball.
    The only thing that comes to mind is the Nolan Ryan demolition of Robin Ventura’s face with the headlock of death

    • ThE sHiT says:
      (link)

      @muskysmell: that punch was epic, Bats had it coming. Definitely at least 20 game suspension for Odor.

    • GrassyKnollRedding says:
      (link)

      @muskysmell: Wow! That is a widowmaker. My favorite part is how Beltre is rushing over as if he’s got to save Odor from big bad Joey Bats and then Odor unleashes hell.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Totally agree

  259. GrassyKnollRedding says:
    (link)

    Hey Grey,

    I’m one of the many unlucky Odor owners today; who would you say is the better pickup to use in my 2B slot until Odor’s done serving his suspension? Schoop or Walker?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      He won’t be suspended for at least a month

  260. Mrs.Featherbottom says:
    (link)

    I’m guessing that Odor will get 5 games max – dude was protecting himself from that well-manicured, fairly douchey beard..

    Also, just made this move in a redraft:
    I got Donaldson and Revere
    I gave Mazara, Castelanos, Nola, and Joe Ross.
    I will miss Nola, but pretty stoked on the return.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Nice trade! I think the suspension is gonna be longer, sadly

      • Mrs.Featherbottom says:
        (link)

        @Grey: You think that means we see some Profar?

  261. Nightpandas says:
    (link)

    Grey, either of these tickle your fancy ?

    1. Give Pujols and Shields for Duda and Waino

    2. Lester and Pujols for E5

    • Grey

      (link)

      1. Nah 2. Sure

  262. I don't want to brag but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:
    (link)

    man, in an AL only i thought i was screwed when delino got minored and i missed hicks by less than 1 day to somebody else, but instead i got some guyer, who’s been awesome in my lineup so far (small sample of course)

  263. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    good god baseball players have a LOT of kids, how about if they have to knock people up (the ones they are willing to admit are their’s and take off games for anyway) they do it between the months of january- july, so the kid will come out in the offseason months. these guys have half the year for this, if they absolutely have to add to clogging up the earth, not too much to ask.

  264. L-Boogie says:

    12 team 5×5. better stash: taillon or urias?

      @L-Boogie: taillon, urias is going to bullpen, ala price or sale when they came up.
