Said like DJ Khaled, “Another one.”  The Rays called up Willy Adames (1-for-2, 2 RBIs) as they placed Daniel Robertson on the DL.  You might remember him better as Commander Willy Adames of the Battlestar Galactica.  S’nerdy.  “Hey, Grey, if your mustache wasn’t so full and well-groomed, I’d noogie you so hard.”  That’s you reading my Battlestar Galactica reference.  Sorry, guys and girls, there’s space for both of us.  Bam!  A line I think I’m quoting but prolly not.  Any hoo!  Captain Adames is a Xander Bogaerts-type, according to Prospector Ralph.   On the top 100 fantasy baseball prospect list, he wrote, “One of toughest types to rank on top prospects lists. The middle infield prospect, who has always been young for his level, with advanced hitting, but neither standout speed or power. Adames might take a few seasons to find mixed leagues relevance, but he should develop enough power to be a very viable shortstop option by 2020.  By which time Grey’s a distant memory and I run this ‘itch!”  What is up with that, man?!  Adames is the kind guy hard to get excited about if he’s a 15/10/.280 hitter, but since he’s only 22 years old, if he grows into more power, he could be a future high-end shortstop.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Jake Bauers – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer.  In an incredible turn of events, I own Bauers.  All of them!  What a joy for me.  *puts a bow tie on and goes for tea*  No, I’m not a damsel, but I picked up Bauers for his home run.  Doesn’t count?  Okay, will leave the tea room now.  You don’t have to shove!  Bauers won’t get you in for high tea, apparently, but Bauers could hit for some power(s).

Matt Duffy – 2-for-5, 2 runs, and his 3rd steal, hitting .320 and hitting near-.400 in the last week.  Hot schmotato alert!

Chris Archer – Shut down with a setback on his abdominal strain.  Filling in for him will be (Mad Libs reliever name).

Ryan Yarbrough – 6 IP, 4 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.90.  He’s the world’s first reliever converted starter converted reliever/starter converted starter/starter.

Sam Gaviglio – 3 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.66.  The scout watching him said, “Take the radar gun, leave the cannoli.”

Teoscar Hernandez – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 11th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games.  Teoscar is alive with pleasure like a Newport cigarette!  Not sure if we’re on a schmotato flight of fancy, but call me Nancy and make me schmancy!

Mookie Betts – 1-for-5 as he was activated from the DL.  Thank you merciful, Fantasy Baseball Overlord.  Your generosity can not be overstated.

Steven Wright – 6 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 1.21.  There was some discussion about Wright and streaming him and the Stream-o-Nator and stuff — lots of stuff! — in the comments yesterday, and I was of the mindset I can’t stream Wright anywhere.  I just don’t trust a knuckleballer, because they could explode at any moment.  Robot who is trying to learn our ways, “A knuckleballer stream could explode at any moment?  Dee-boop-beep, is this about sex?”

Zach Britton – Activated from the DL.  Buck Showalter said he wants to ease Britton into closing games.  You know that friend of yours who hasn’t been laid in four years and you think is just asexual?  It’s like him saying he wants to ease into dating.  Yo, Showalter, you don’t really have that many closing opportunities to ease into.

Jonathan Schoop – 0-for-6, hitting .213.  As Frequent commenter, SteveNZ said, “Are we sure Schoop doesn’t rhyme with poop?”

Dylan Bundy – 8 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.66.  If you started Bundy vs. the Sawx, you have bigger pants marbles than yours truly.  Even with his ERA and Ks where they are, I don’t trust Bundy.  Oh, and he’s been more than solid.  This is on me more than it’s on him.

Brian Anderson – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer, and hitting near-.425 in the last week.  Long live the hot schmotato who is Brian Anderson!

J.T. Realmuto – 3-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs, and his 7th homer, hitting .301.  Jerry Tomato was on the same field as Buster Posey (2-for-5, 1 run) last night and they had some words — “I can’t believe people draft catchers high.”  “I know, so dumb.”

Madison Bumgarner – 5 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.76.  Against the Marlins?  Mad-Bum should be Sad-Bum at his failings.  Nothing more than failings.  Failings at the game played with a glove.

Jeff Samardzija – Ready for rehab.  With Samardzija, the news update should be more like, “Are you ready for Samardzija to rehab?”

Kenta Maeda – Cleared to start on Wednesday, but he didn’t rehab so he might not go deep in the game, which sounds like every pitcher in baseball minus about seven guys.

Shohei OhtaniAngels are cautiously optimistic he can play again this year, at least as a hitter.  What a mess.  If he avoids surgery so he can hit again this year, he’s going to still need the surgery at some point or never pitch again.  This sounds like the worst idea ever.  Just let him have the surgery and sideline him for 13 months.  You are messing with his career!  Ugh, so frustrating.  Also, Podcast Ralph and I go over Ohtani on the podcast that’s coming later today if you want more bleeding ulcers.

Mike Trout – 2-for-3 and his 20th and 21st homer, hitting .304.  This guy might have a career playing baseball.

Albert Pujols – 1-for-4 and his 10th homer, hitting .256.  I know, he’s Verb Ralph, meaning to vomit, but he is on pace for 25 HRs and 90 RBIs.  He would be the first 72-year-old to reach either number.

Andrew Heaney – 3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.68.  Fer crissakes, can Heaney stay on message?  That message:  be a good pitcher!

Robinson CanoMariners said Cano won’t be the everyday 2nd baseman when he returns.  Damn, someone sounds like a bitter Betty.  I get what he did wasn’t right, and Gordon is a fine 2nd baseman, but Denard Span and Guillermo Heredia need to stay in the lineup that badly that Gordon can’t move back to the outfield?  Sounds a bit cockamamie and a little nuts — cockanuts?

Nelson Cruz – 2-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 14th homer, and his 4th homer in his last three games.  Oh boy (or five girls), here we go with one of his 12 homers in 15 game streaks.

Elvis Andrus – Began his rehab stint.  Ya know, rehab and Elvis have some pretty interesting Google results.

Eric Thames – Activated from the DL.  He said of his six-week absence, “It kind of put things in perspective for me.  That’s why I don’t like to get hurt.  It’s lonely.”  Then he sat on the bench all game, through 11 innings, by himself, and didn’t play.

Junior Guerra – 6 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.71.  Bit surprised at how few questions I get about Guerra.  Look at Guerra’s ERA then look at, say, Luke Weaver’s, who I am asked about multiple times a day.

Jonathan Villar – 1-for-3 and his 6th homer, and his 2nd homer in his last three games.  He’s also hitting .276 on the year.  Oddly enough, he only has nine steals.  Counsell usually likes to run too.  Not sure what’s going on.  What’s going on?  Father, father, war is not the answer.  Though, Guerra has been, so that’s a mixed signal.

Yu Darvish – Will throw off the mound today.  Yu said, through a translator, “I’ll be ready to screw up some fantasy teams soon.  Don’t translate that part.  You did already, didn’t you?”  The translator added, “Oopsie.”

Albert Almora – 3-for-6, 1 run, 2 RBIs, hitting .323.  In 58 games, he has two homers and one steal on the year.  That is impressively yawnstipating.  You almost have to be in awe of how bleh that is.

Jose Quintana – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.09.  He entered May with a 5.74 ERA and left May with a 4.30 ERA.  I’d say he’s turned his season around. i.e., you can just start him and don’t need to worry about what the Stream-o-Nator says on him or matchup (unless Coors).

Carlos Carrasco – 7 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 3.90.  Coooooookeeeeee Monster.  Though, against the White Sox, so mileage may vary.

Francisco Mejia – Recalled from Triple-A.  He was hitting .214 in the minors this year with four homers, and he might only be up for a few games, and Gary Sanchez, who you weren’t supposed to draft but did anyway because he was going to be the 2nd coming of Gary the Apostle but ended up the Dirty Sanchez in Screech’s porn video, isn’t even good so stay low key on catchers.  Even Mejia.

Robbie Ray – On track for a rehab start on Thursday at High-A Visalia.  Sounds like a game to take a red eye to.

Patrick Corbin – 5 1/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA up to 3.10.  The Regression Fairies can spot a fashion faux pas from across the room, they go to the full service gas pump and they will destroy your ratios.

Jake Lamb – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer, hitting .235.  “Let’s just take the rolled-up carpet with the body out to the dumpster–WHOA!  Hold on!  Lamb is alive!”

Joe Musgrove – 6 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.16.  I would’ve been so happy if both starters in this game (also, Corbin) threw two 9-inning shutouts and one lost by an unearned run, but enough about me, more about Musgrove!  Some regression due, but I’m happy to own him.

Paul DeJong – On pace to return by the end of the month, and fielded some grounders yesterday.  Don’t pass on DeJong, or Grey poop on you.

Jack Flaherty – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks.  I like Flaherty a lot, but don’t own him, so wasn’t exactly sure what he was doing.  All I know is a lot of people are asking to drop him.  His ERA is 2.96!  What are you dropping him for?  1997 David Cone?  Get out of here!

Jose Martinez – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 10th homer, hitting .327.  Since I pointed out Jo-Ma wasn’t hitting for much power, he’s done exactly that — five homers in the last five games.  By the way, why is Rhys Hoskins not hitting for much power?

Marcell Ozuna – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 7th homer.  I’ll bet some five pretend dollars that Ozuna still gets to 30 homers this year, which means he’s got a ton left in the tank.

Jordan Lyles – 6 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.83.  Insert ‘Crying Because You Own Jordan’ meme.

Cory Spangenberg – 1-for-3 and his 6th homer.  I liked him better when he was Cory Spangenpancake.

    Grey!!!

    Excellent write-up. Had me at the edge of my seat. Not like when I first saw Carrie, but close. Good thing there was no mention of Mesoraco, scary thought.

    a. Thanks for the Flaherty advice! Not going to start him for his next one at home versus the Cubs because they are stacked, but maybe. I mean this was against the Padres and they are really depressing as a hitting team.

    b. Signed up Thames because he was there as a FA and figured what the hell. He could still have a few hrs left in the tank like Ozuna, right?

    c. Mark Twain quote of the day for June 12

    Young Man: Did you stay the term instinct is meaningless?

    Old Man: I think it is a bastard word. I think it confuses us; for as a rule it applies itself to habits and impulses which had a far-off origin in thought, and now and then breaks the rule and applies itself to habits which can hardly claim a thought-origin.

    Young Man: Give an instance.

    Old Man: Well, in putting on trousers a man always inserts the same old leg first–never the other one. There is no advantage in that, and no sense in it. All men do it, yet no man thought it out and adopted it of set purpose, I imagine. But it is a habit which is transmitted, no doubt, and will continue to be transmitted.

    Cheers,

    In GREY we trust……..trust traded corbin and ian happ for Sale in a keeper league (not keeping any of those guys) thoughts?

    Major question is any true ideas when guys like senzel and tucker actually get the call up. Both are sitting in triple A at this point, rostering them might be challenging but for a keeper league where you would be able to have them in the 27th makes you justify it. Sitting around waiting for their call up and then losing out on the wavier NO BUENO.

    Also, Musgrove, Pivetta, and weaver….they more streaming options now? WHat the heck happened to them???

    • Grey

    Grey!

    This write-up was sweet! Like a healing salve after a 3-23 day (Smoak, Schoop, Abreu, et al).

    Still holding onto Schoop but it’s getting tough. My 10 year old (1st time fantasy baseballer!) wants to drop him from his team. Will that get him going on the two teams where I own him? Tough parenting decision to make here…

    Also, you *were* first on Rondon. Hours after the first save. Let’s hope he gets some more this week.

    And Bauers! I haven’t been this confused since the Rex Brothers. Two guys for one roster spot! They were great.

    OK. Have a good one!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

  7. Show me your Ohtani says:
    (link)

    Here’s a trade I’m pondering offering:

    I get Betts,
    I give G. Sanchez, R. Ray

    I have Yadier and S. Perez as my catchers in a 1 catcher keeper pts league, and I already have Kluber, deGrom, MadBum, Happ, Price, L. Castillo and Stripling as my pitchers. Sanchez is $1, but his contract expires after this season and I could retain him for 25% off his auction price but I already know he will be at least $40.

    Also, when is it okay to add J. Polanco? The Twins are at 62 games. Is he worth rostering at this point? Will he be worth rostering when he returns?

    • Malicious Phenoms says:
      (link)

      @Show me your Ohtani:
      I’d take Betts in that deal, add Polanco now if you have an open spot or can drop a bench bat.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Show me your Ohtani: Betts side — Polanco may not have a place to play when he returns, though I guess if the league is deep enough

    How much longer are we giving Schpoop? I just picked up Kinsler and benched Wormless John, (had him in the line-up all season AND complained about my low BA), but I don’t like either of them much.

    Thanks for the laughs, Grey!

        I know both have great pedigrees (and Atlanta might actually have comparable offense). Need to decide wrt DL activation since I can’t keep him on DL (league doesn’t permit this if I’m planning other moves).. Thanks.

    Nary a comment about Kris Bryant? Seems Kris has turned into a RHH version of Joey Votto. Minus the hits and walks. Forgot who said it, but it looks like Bryant is an old 26, or maybe just an injury. Anyway, I started Candelario in Bryant’s place this week . I know, stupid ,right? Who in their right mind starts someone over a first rounder? Anyone else think Bryant is a first rounder? Second rounder? Third rounder? I know, he’s a former MVP, with the emphasis on former. Not prepared to move on from Bryant just yet…..but he’s gonna sit for awhile until he proves he’s got more than warning track power. On pace for 20 HRs and 75 RBIs. On a positive note, that’s two more RBIs than last year…..baby steps.

        @Grey: oops, sorry, forgot, this is a hitter drop for MI question (weaver i have for 2 more years at 1/336 or so, total budget inflates a bit every year). anybody off of FA counts as a $10, and is in year 1 out of 3 the year you add them. many of the people on this roster are 10’s from FA (skaggs, adams, candleman, gibson, fields, rondon, tepera, leonys, cron). some of these are just awesome values though:
        thames (3, year 1)
        weaver (1, year 2 now)
        wacha (8, year 1 and pitchers are often overpriced in auction too)

      Today SON is pretty “meh” on him at home vs. MIN…but SON is loving Caleb Ferguson home vs. TEX. Should I trust SON and roll Ferguson, or hold Blaine and hope for the best?

    I did not have the confidence of 1000 gigolos watching Wright last night. It’s tough to watch a knuckler…looks like every pitch should be roped. A lot of them were actually, just on the ground, and he had some great defensive help. I’m happy to take that line and run. Today’s heart attack stream…Jon Gray.

    Walks and OBP are categories in our league, and I need both fairly bad. Do you think it would be wise to try and swap my Jose Abreu for his Kris Bryant?

    Abreu is on pace for another 30/100 season, while Bryant looks like two straight sub 30 hr, sub 80 rbi years. Bryant is going to walk around twice as much though, plays on a better offense, and has all the ability in the world to match Abreu’s 30/100. Thoughts?

    Give: Lindor, Gallo

    Situation: Can’t keep Lindor next year. Can keep Beni.
    Could use a boost to my SP group (Sale,Clev,Fulmer,Gibson,Junis,German).
    Have a lot of IFs for this size league, can use OF help.
    Bregman slides into SS for Lindor.

    Similar to hugman, I’m wondering your thoughts on Dylan Covey. Thinking about streaming him for a day. Stats on the year are 5 starts, 2 wins, 28 Ks over 28.1 IP, ERA at 2.22, and he shutout Boston @ BOS and Milwaukee @ home his last 2 starts.
    This stream would be a home game vs. the Indians.

    Great stuff Grey! Need a little nudge on making a decision for my RCL.

    My worst hitting categories are AVG. (9th) and Runs (9th). RBI (6th) isn’t great either, but have been making strides in HRs to get to 4th. Steals I’ll be fine in as long as Turner doesn’t get hurt. That being said I’m trying flip a coin between 3 guys and something keeps going wrong…

    I have a guy shopping Juan Soto in my H2H 12 team league, I like Soto’s hitting profile a lot, but he’s only has 60 AB’s so it’s a small ample size. He’s looking for a SP for him. I have Heaney, Soroka, Musgrove , or Cahill I’m willing to part with. Is Soto worth a flyer for one of these guys ? Or does the league adjust to the 19 year old and he get’s send down or lose’s AB’s to Taylor if he slumps. He actually asked for McCuller’s, but I think that’s a little much for him. What do you think ?

    I see based on comments your kinda buying Guerra.

    I have no pitchers to drop Buy can drop a hitter for him, reluctantly though.

    My options are Yuli, Schebler, Pederson, Profar. Don’t really “need” another arm though. Looking forward to thoughts. Thanks.

    Mid Season Checkup: I’m in a 10 team mixed Yahoo H2H redraft league.

    Bundy, Guerra, and Rodon are available in my league.

    Desmond, Smoak, Herrera, Nimmo, Schebler, Villar, Peralta, and Choo are also available.

    I currently have a two bats on my bench — would really prefer to have just 1. I only play Devers now when I have no other choice as he hasn’t played well this year and I have Rendon (and Freeman for a backup) at third.

    Should I consider picking up any of the above? If so, who to drop? At the moment, I would need to DROP TWO players to pick up one b/c I still have Britton stashed in a DL spot.

    MY TEAM:
    ========
    C – J. Realmuto (C,1B)
    1B – F. Freeman (1B, 3B)
    2B – J. Altuve (2B)
    3B – A Rendon (3B)
    SS – M. Machado (3B, SS))
    OF – S. Marte – (OF)
    OF – Mitch Haniger (OF)
    OF – Nomar Mazara (OF)
    UTIL – Juan Soto (OF)
    BENCH: R. Devers – (3B), Max Muncy (1B,3B,OF)

    STARTERS:
    =========
    C. Carrasco (SP)
    L. McCullers Jr. (SP)
    R. Stripling (SP,RP)
    A. Heaney (SP)
    J. Paxton (SP)
    J. Flaherty (SP)
    W. Buehler (SP, RP)
    N. Pivetta(SP)
    C. Martinez (SP)
    DL: Jimmy Nelson (SP), Mike Soroka (SP)

    CLOSERS (only can start 3 at a time)
    ========
    B. Morrow (RP)
    S. Greene (RP)
    Keone Kela (RP)

    DL – Zach Britton (RP)

    CI/OF question. Most critical stats are BA/SB/R. Two of these guys need to sit on the bench, and one of those guys might be on the chopping block for pitching help. Who’s on the chopping block, who’s on the bench? Healy, Muncy, Hicks, Beltre, Hoskins, Rendon, Bellinger.

    Are you buying into a turnaround with Ozuna? How do you feel about giving Shaw for him straightup?

    My current OF is my achilles heel with:
    1. Pham

    Corner infield is:

    Hello Grey,
    I guess I should have included Heaney with Cahill and Gibson as potential drops for Soroka in our 12 Team H2H League with OPS and Holds, as you thought Cahill was the drop yesterday. Of course, my dumb ass got impatient and I dropped Gibson, so yup.

    And my rant for the day – this is the second week in a row where I have started with negative points in our Yahoo 10 Team H2H Points League after one day. Last week it was Godley and f’n Duffy (who both acquitted themselves nicely in their second start, but alas…) and now Heaney this week. WTF!!!!!

    Was offered C-Mart and Merrifield for Mikolas and Acuna.

    I still think the best is yet to come with C-mart this year. ( same could be said for Acuna of course )
    Could use the pitching upgrade more than the hitting in this league. Is this even a pitching upgrade at this point?

    I am guessing that you are going to say Acuna side.

    When I read the commenter posts early ( Im in Joisey ) before you answer I play a game called WWGD ( What would Grey do ) . I usually guess along with your answers at a good rate. ( Not as in sync with your Greyness as Cram it is, but I pay attention so usually know how you feel about most players )

    Anyways, about this trade offer?

    What would be a good target for selling my Rosario and Bauer together?

    10 team standard roto where we only can keep 5 (one keeper must be a pitcher).

Obviously I’m dominating this year and am thinking about selling high at the right time for future years. Thanks Grey

    Grey,

    Excellent stuff as always.

    Was offered Pivetta for my Britton and Luis Castillo in a 5×5 12 team roto (keep 5). 1500 IP limit. Am no lower than 3rd in any P category. So trade would just solidify that and create a Streamer spot for bats and SP. Britton surely won’t get many SV opps in the ROS ? None of players involved are keepers, given my bats.

    My RP’s : Hand, Diaz, Box, Sir Anthony, Jones, Tepera, Hicks, Gsellman (previous 2 are SP eligible, which is a bonus), Britton
    My SP’s : Sevy, Wacha, Morton, Bauer, Castillo

    WWGD ?

    I’m looking to try and land Gallo, but I’ll need to send a 1B back in return. I’m thinking Bell and Mikolas, but even though he needs pitching, I don’t see that getting it done. My other 1B is Cron, but he has been sneaky valuable, and I’m not sure I want Gallo at his expense if it means losing Mikolas.

    I’m in a 10 team NL only league with standard 5×5 scoring. It’s a 2 catcher league with no bench. I currently have Manny Pina and Chris ianetta. John Ryan Murphy is available, would he be an upgrade over either if them. Pina’s average is down and his slugging percentage is lower. Thanks!

    Hello again Grey,
    What do you think of Bumgarner? His owner in our Yahoo 12 Team H2H League with OPS and Holds is shopping him around, and I could use a good SP (in 11th Place). I have a decent offense (on paper of course) with the following:
    Y. Grandal
    Goldy
    K. Marte
    Bryant
    Semien
    Marte
    Bellinger
    Hoskins
    Desmond
    Encarancion
    Meadows
    Murphy (DL) – Ugh!
    Acuna (DL)

    Do you think a Bellinger or Hoskins is too much for him? If so, what hitter(s) would you think is a fair offer? And I’m assuming that he mainly wants offense, so we can keep it to that.

    And you may hear me yell from where you are as I have Gray pitching tonight in our Points League. You know, the one where I am negative – HA! Yeah, this is gonna hurt.

    Thanks much Grey.

    My excessive save hoarding has yielded me the following RPs in my 10 team H2H:
    Treinen, Boxberger, Greene, Barraclough, Dominguez, and Parker

    I need to drop one for a streaming SP spot since I have both Archer and Buehler on the DL and only 1 DL spot – which means one of those is “active”. I’m leaning dropping either Dominguez or Parker since both play for wacky tobaccy managers, but Greene is probably the worst of the bunch… decisions, decisions…
