Yesterday, Hunter Brown (2/3 IP, 9 ER, ERA at 16.43) reinvented doomscrolling. Doomscrolling is now the act of frantically searching your fantasy teams to see if you have Hunter Brown anywhere. I literally dropped him the day before this start to pick up Brandon Marsh and now I am forever indebted to Brandon Marsh. I will be sending Brandon Marsh a ham for Christmas. I won’t even make a bad pun on the attached card wishing him a Happy Christmarsh. Hunter Brown vs. Bored of Education But I Ain’t Yawning If You Talk About Bobby Witt Jr. Yesterday, Witt went 4-for-5, 4 runs, 5 RBIs with a double slam (3, 4) and legs (3). He has 30+ homer power and 50+ steal speed, and might hit .280, i.e., if anyone’s going to supplant Acuña at the top of the fantasy baseball heap, it’s not crazy to think it could be Witt. I don’t say this neither willy or nilly. To Witt, his steal yesterday was as good an indication of what there is to love about him. He stole 2nd base in a 9-3 game in the 6th. I love that. That’s what I want from all my players. Just a reckless abandon of piling on of stats! Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Brady Singer – 5 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 0.98. Love to say how great he looked, but if he didn’t have a nine-run lead by the 2nd inning, I’m not sure this start would’ve been a positive. Meh, it’s fine, though. Not like you can sell him for anything. Ride the lightning.

Vinnie Pasquantino – 3-for-5, 1 run, 3 RBIs. Ay yo, it’s Vinnie Bagadonuts, and I’m back into it like liquored-up fruit in cannoli creme.

Yainer Diaz – 2-for-4 and his 3rd homer. Ya know what’s a little weird? Usually catchers who play another position (Yainer DHs) are driven way up in drafts, but Yainer stayed pretty affordable. I said “a little weird” not interesting or funny.

Seth Brown – 2-for-4 and his 1st homer. Go ahead and [google Seth Brown sleeper] I’m kidding! Clear your browser cache! Do not google that! Please! It was a mistake!

JP Sears – 6 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 3 walks, 5 Ks, ERA at 5.17. More like JP Gucci! Paying brand name for Sears because he’s going into Texas and laying them out like he’s Ippei with $16 millies on the game. The stars of the A’s game yesterday were Brown/Butler/Sears, which sounds like a product that was discontinued in the 1950s. Streamonator likes his next start, and I could see it.

Jon Gray – 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.38. I could’ve used that win. No, I haven’t hit my head thinking I’m Jon Gray. Grey could’ve used Gray’s win vs. the A’ss.

Jared Jones – 6 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 6hits, zero walks, 8 Ks, ERA at 4.00. That’s Orenthal Jared Jones to you, because he’s a killer! True story alert! Once did some writing for The Naked Gun guys and in their office they had a photo of the white Bronco chase signed by OJ Simpson, and I said, “You got OJ to sign it?” And one of them was like, “No, fuck him. Jim (Abrahams) signed his name. Let him sue us for forgery.” Orenthal Jared Jones looked better than his line, for what it’s Cronenworth. Ya know who looked better than Jones though?

Ranger Suarez – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 2.65. I have Suarez in a bunch of leagues, and I’m asking sincerely: Did you have to draft an ace when you could have Ranger Suarez around 250 overall?

Alec Bohm – 2-for-3 and his 1st homer. Good try, man! I’ve already dropped him for (insert corner infidel off waivers who you’re going to want to drop by Monday). He’s so much better too!

Bryson Stott – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer. If you’ve wanted to drop Stott because he had a bad eleven games, I am judging you. I’m sorry, I am.

Brandon Marsh – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, 2nd homer in four games, and so hot he made me drop Hunter Brown two days ago to pick him up, so he saved me there too! Happy Christmarsh to me! Marsh won’t be in this afternoon’s Buy column, but he could’ve been. He’s here now! Just grab him!

Colton Cowser – 3-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 1st and 2nd major league homer. He’s also hitting around .500 since February. I don’t know about his stupid platooning, but they’re not going to be able to take him out of the lineup soon.

Gunnar Henderson – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer. After living through the dry years of Baltimore, they are awash in fun.

Anthony Santander – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer. Still think he should be traded for an arm and Kjerstad should be promoted or Mayo or any of their Triple-A hitters, but Santander is hitting third every game in a great lineup.

Grayson Rodriguez – 5 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.50. Hey, one love, but his opponent’s pitching (Whitlock) looked better yesterday. Grayson didn’t look bad though, and I still love my one true boychik.

Garrett Whitlock – 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 1.26. Sawx rotation is a sneaky top five rotation in baseball.

Jose Quintana – 5 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.45. Mets jumped out to a huge early lead and Quintana cruised out to the Ivictory Coast for a free night at the W. Streamonator likes his next one and I could see it.

DJ Stewart – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer, and 2nd homer this week, which I know without looking because I’m getting sonavabenched by him in one NL-Only league. Don’t cry for me, you empath, I started Olivares over him and he homered twice in my lineup. Will DJ Stewart be in this afternoon’s Buy column? C’mon.

Allan Winans – 5 IP, 6 ER. [sees picture of him] Ahem, that’s Allan Ivory Winans.

Shohei Ohtani – His translator pled guilty to stealing $16 million. [standing by ATM with my friend Ippei Mizuhara] “These casino ATMs have an exorbitant withdrawal fees so I usually go to the 7/11–Oh, I see, to avoid the withdrawal fees, you just took out $16 million, smart.” [later on phone with my friend Ippei Mizuhara] “You bet sixteen million on the White Sox to win the World Series? Wow, man, I don’t know.” For those that were worried about Ohtani being suspended for being robbed, I am once again asking, how would he ever get caught? In Vegas for the Main Event, there were people who passed on Ohtani in drafts for fear of suspension, which shows you how little people who seemingly know things know so little. In that department, this is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. This is a Harvard Law professor:

A Harvard Law professor has never heard of embezzlement. Incredible. Some would say, fitting. Hold up! Ippei turned off Ohtani’s email notifications from Bank of America? The horror! Oh my God! That is worse than stealing $16 million. This is a breach of trust between Ohtani, Ippei and Gmail.

Hi Mr. Grey,

I have a dilemma with my staring pitching. I have to drop one of the following to make room for Sonny Gray (the other Gray):

Gausman
Pablo Lopez
Jared Jones
Tanner Houck
Reynaldo Lopez
Reese Olson
Garrett Whitlock
Kyle Bradish

My thought is Bradish since he’s on the IL and the others aren’t, but I love his upside more than the ones below Jones. What do you think?

Thanks.

so far not trading away pretty damn good pitchers (yes kirby, gausman, framber, bibee not so good/great so far, but long term i’m worried about here) since my opponents thought i’d be worried about having j.burger at 3B in a 16’er near dynasty (keep max 19 + prospect list max 10) to get either r.lewis or devers looking pretty damn good. lewis made it what 2 at bats, devers a bit longer, which is worse since his hitting outputs all year. sure burger is worse (this is OPS) than devers likely but keeping say b.miller SEA over say one of those 4 SP seems worse (and they mostly wanted gausman/framber/kirby not bibee). burger hasn’t even gotten hot yet and has a high .700’s with pretty elite runs + RBI’s per at bat (22/50). if devers’ shoulder thing lasts he’ll simply be worth less this year than burger if he stays healthy. r.lewis has been healthy for what, like over 50 str at bats once over the last 4-5ish years or so?

has anybody noticed that kelenic’s got an over .500 OBP and over 1. OPS with pretty elite runs + RBI’s per at bat so far (7/26). they’re really sheltering his at bats (can’t be just not against lefties with 26 at bats likely, vs many others in the mid 40’s if not higher). i just noticed it a 2nd time just now.

In a saves + holds format would you take a shot on bednar who was cut or go with adams (fairbanks down 2mph), hoffman (looks good may close occasionally, may also get deployed in 5th inning) or mcarthur (18% swstr, small sample). Bednar velocity is fine. He didn’t really have a spring. Thanks

my only 12’er h2h 5×5 (local, small money, not with regular fantasy baseball’ers mostly), somebody dropped b.miller (LAD). i have:

SP: pab lop, gilbert, gore, bassitt hound, bello, ober, mize
RP: kopech (leagues like this, wasn’t owned long either), helsley, scott, finnegan, mcarthur
IR: stephenson, buehler

guessing mize is the easy drop here for waivering miller

Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves
Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves

ober i also waivered, dropped even before his first start (very bad that one)

Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves
Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves

i was able to waiver eflin with an 8th waiver in a 14’er a few days ago, people are nuts.

Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves
Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves

an easy explanation is in that 12’er they’re regular fantasy football people, and hell 2 not great events (starts for pitchers) in football is 2/14th of the season. but it doesn’t explain why somebody wants to drop b.miller when he’s holding e.suarez as his 3rd 3B in a shallow 12’er (no CI, 1 util) while benching k.hayes as his 2nd every day.

i already owned a lot of grissom and now a lot more of hamilton, so i hope that’s true. and these guys aren’t blocks for anybody: valdez, “romy gonzalez”, pablo reyes, just as w.abreu wasn’t a block for rafaela (at least not yet)

Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves
Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves

from the 2nd most recent grissom fantrax news blurb (the most recent reiterates it)
“Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday that Grissom (groin/hamstring) will primarily play second base on his rehab assignment but will also see some action at shortstop, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis:Shortstop is Grissom’s natural position, although the reviews of his defense there are not good. It doesn’t sound like the Red Sox plan to use him as a regular at shortstop, but with Trevor Story (shoulder) out indefinitely, they want him prepared to handle the position on occasion. “

grissom too. it’s only not good for those 3 names that nobody would even want to own in a 30’er but would if they needed at bats (i’m in a 30’er and all of romy, valdez, abreu, pab re owned, anybody with at bats is owned)

Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves
Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves

had i not seen that blurb back on tues or so i’d not have obtained hamilton in every league immediately at all. it’d look likely last year played out again quite possibly, but with slightly more at bats.

Lost McClain, trying to fill SS position. Moved Betts to SS and picked up Westburg (2b).
Questions:
1) Do you like any of the following over Westburg; Blaze, Hamilton, Rosario, Luis Garcia
2) Or do you support making a deal … Tucker for one of O’Neil Cruz, CJ Abrams or Anthony Volpe? Re-draft obviously would not consider, but more tempting in a keep forever.
3) Anything to see with Luis Garcia, still very young and his stat cast numbers look terrific. Potential low-key breakout or just hot start?

Happy Friday and happy Norm McDonald joke day.

14 team mixed auction keeper league roto standard 5X5 cats.

Off to a slow start, which is ok because we don’t use FAAB but reverse order of standings for waiver wire pick ups.

A couple of questions

My starters are Gausman, Ryan, Ober, Lugo, Gore, Kremer, Houck, Schmidt.

On waivers are Ranger Suarez, Braxton Garrett, Ben Brown and Lance Lynn.

Any of these guys worth putting in for to drop what I already have?

Second question

My offense ( or lack of offense so far ) is

T. Stevenson – C
Paredes – 1B
Albies – 2b
Lindor – SS
Devers – 3B
Chisholm, Blackmon, Stanton, Leody T, Rafaela – OF
Gleybor – MI
Rizzo -CI
Frelick – DH

bench is JD Mart, Arcia, and Oswaldo C.

Available on the wire are:

D Hamilton, Blaze A, Neto, Winn, Dunn, Lipscomb, E Oliveres, Profar, J Walsh, Ty France and Josh Smith.

Same question as above with drop who for whom.

Lastly, I have Phillips, Helsley and Ginkel for saves.
McArthur is available. Make a play for him or hold Ginkel?

As always thanks in advance and have a great and injury free weekend and if your ever in trouble, may your glove never fit.

Also, I completely agree about the insane number of people who can’t believe someone who literally never has to worry about money for the rest of his life not knowing how much money he has in the bank. That is arguably one of the best perks of being rich!

Anyhoo… curious about your strategy on streaming hot bats vs holding a mid-tier guy long-term in a 12 team 5×5 league. For example…

Vinnie P
Olivares
Sheets
Nelson
Velazquez
Outman
Kirilloff

are all available…

1 – Are you more likely to hold one guy through ups and downs vs playing the hot hand (like Sheets) and dropping for the next who comes along?

2 – Who is your preference out of those (regardless of your schmotato expectation)?

Thank you!

As someone who will surely acquire generational wealth any day now, I am really not looking forward to having this kind of unfair scrutiny on my lack of financial awareness.

Perfect! Thank you!

the only part that’s different from regular people is many regular people don’t have persons in their lives that have access to their bank accounts (actually many do with their wives), along with the amount of money in said account. but just like a wife, ohtani trusted that dude for a very long time, till lately had no reason to worry about it. and he’s got soooo much money, unlike regular people who live check to check, he doesn’t probably almost ever even have to look at it.

ROTO – 6×6 (QS instead of Wins), Keeper league

Grey, Happy Friday!

  1. What does your gut say about starting Detmers at Boston today? I’m a gambling man, but I also started Brown yesterday and got crushed…so feeling ancy.
  2. Which prospect would you rather have as a keeper between Ricky Tiedeman or Loperfino?

Thanks and have a great weekend!

BWWIII

One more thing…reading that Cabrera is about ready to join the Marlin’s rotation. Would you add him over Ranger Suarez or Nestor Cortes?

NL-only keep 10, what’s your bid on JoMo ($91/100 left)? Would make him a must-keep next yr.

I know it’s one game with Hunter Brown but this looks like the price of the roller coaster. Nuking multiple categories if he’s off. Might be ready to get off this ride for something safer.

QS league, 10 team: Can you give me your top 3: Hunter Brown, Ranger Suarez, Lugo, Braxton Garrett, Kikuchi?

Hello Mi amigo Mr Grey !

I’m in a 12 team H2H 5×5 yahoo. I feel like Whitlock and abbott are streamers or should I stash em. I was gonna drop him for MacKenzie Gore who you might like more and has a great matchup tomorrow.

Starters : Luzardo, Snell, Keller, Berrios, pepiot , Montgomery , Abbott, whitlock

Relievers: alexis Diaz, holmes , ginkel

I have Ryan Mcmahon who’s been hot who I might also be able to drop? (Stott is my 2b)

Aroldis Chapman and MacKenzie Gore are my targets right now that are available.

What would you do ?

Am I being dumb holding out hope on Buxton in a 12 team 3 OF league? 2022 feels far away. I could pick up Nimmo, Cowser, Merrill…

Top guys on the FA list, offensively, currently are Marsh, Cronenworth, Olivares, and E. Suarez. Swapping anyone out?
Bench Nolan Jones until he comes out of this?

Pitching looks like:

Thanks for your help!
