I only drafted Yasiel Puig in one league (that I remember) and it was a 12-team NL-Only league! *humps the air a’la Ace Ventura* I have exorcised the demons! That’s a new reference, right? What’s that, Inner Monologue, I only drafted Puig because the day I did it it was reported he was being signed by the Rockies? Yeah, so? Get out of my mentions, Inner Monologue! Okay, not to move from humping the air to getting sprung, but the Braves are making me hot under my Skidz. Thank God, they’re drawstring! Can we talk about the Braves’ outfield? Yes, please. Tildaddy, OZUNA and Puig. *gulps* If I were in 8th grade and asked to go to the chalkboard, I’d have to make up an excuse. “Sorry, Teach, my foot fell asleep, and I’m not just saying that because the Braves’ outfield is dirrrrrrrty with seven R’s.” I’d be happy with just Acuña in any outfield. That’s all you need. Throw in OZUNA and I’m starting to sweat, and then you see Puig and it’s time for, “Cougs, I want you right now but lit by the shine of the Braves’ depth chart.” So, I updated my top 40 outfielders for 2020 fantasy baseball, and Rudy updated all the hitter projections. Funnily enough, I predicted back in January that Puig would not sign until June, but little did little ol’ me know that he wouldn’t miss any actual games. I was so right, yet so not really right at all. Well done! (Not really!) Anyway, here’s what else I saw in fantasy baseball:

Ender Inciarte – Was in a pseudo platoon in my top 100 outfielders, and barely ranked and projected, so I left him alone in my rankings. This is a blow to my pronunciation game, because Ender Inciarte was the hardest player name I was able to properly pronounce. If I’m without Ender Inciarte, who do I have left to pronounce correctly? Ty Wigginton is retired!

Austin Riley – More fall out from Yaisel Puig signing that isn’t really any fall out, i.e., I don’t think Austin Riley is hurt for playing time with the Puig signing. Riley’s got DH, 3B and maybe even 1B, if Freeman can’t return. O’Riley? Yeah, Riley!

Cristian Pache – Tweaked his ankle, but *fans sweaty forehead* the Braves’ outfield can only be so sexy right now, please.

Willie Calhoun – Sent for an MRI with hip flexor tightness. Don’t get that injury-prone label, Willie, you can’t ever shake it, and you need to shake that Willie. Wait, what?

Jose Garcia – David Bell said Jose Garcia could contribute this year in the majors, after hitting eight homers and stealing 15 in High-A last year. I will cyclops with a monocle him, but don’t think he will be in this Friday’s Buy/Sell. Yes, you heard that right. The Buy/Sell returns this Friday. I will be dropping it early for our Patreons too, and you get an extra podcast a week, if you haven’t signed up yet.  It’s five bucks a month. The price of…actually, nothing is that cheap. I can’t think of literally one thing!

Kelvin Gutierrez – Grade 2 sprain of his UCL. A Grade 2 sprain for Kelvin is a Grade -456 in Fahrenheit.

Salvador Perez – Activated already from Covid. Great! Now he’s only 450-or-so days behind everyone else.

Ryan Pressly – Dusty said Pressly, Austin Pruitt and Brad Peacock are all ailing, but couldn’t elaborate further. Dusty’s really got this “don’t say when someone has Covid” thing down so well.

Byron Buxton – Day-to-day with a sprained left foot. If I’m being honest, I haven’t drafted Buxton ever, and wasn’t in on him this year, so this is all whatevs for me.

Juan Soto – Sexy Dr. Pepper and Victor Robles are both expected back today after missing a week in isolation. If you just woke from a five-month coma and read that, you are so confused right now, and I suggest another 7-month snooze.

Yoshihisa Hirano – Hit the IL with wink-wink-nudge-nudge. I have Matt Magill highest in the rankings for M’s closers with a grand total of — and this made me cackle really loud — three saves.

Jose Siri – Claimed off waivers by the Mariners, because they accidentally held their iPhone home button.

Garrett CrochetWhite Sox 1st round pick this year was added to the 60-man. Wait until you see this guy’s homemade blankets.

Who do you like more for this season only – M. Olson or Sano? Statistically, much of a difference in counting stats? Sano in a monster lineup and will be hitting in more hitter friendly parks with this alignment.

he has olson (very high on him he is) 104 spots higher than sano. i do not think sano was moved down from the former DL corona stint, but may have been, but not close to 104 slots down, he was behind olson earlier too.

OPS, OBP, holds, QS rankings. rudy has all of those. what i do for my leagues almost entirely (as only 1 of mine at all is 5×5) is to merge rudy’s whichever applicable (usually QS + holds for pitchers, OPS/OBP for hitters) with grey’s 5×5 ones.

turns out hicks had an elbow setback about a week ago. so 2 days back when he “opts out” all he really was opting out of was practicing with his team mates without ever playing in 2020 at all, coach confirmed this yesterday. his chances of being rushed back after elbow got inflamed were probably like 5% and even then it would’ve been september at best.

i didn’t mean to suggest you were pulling it out of your ass, but notice the rotoworld blurb in which this was lately posted:
“That would mean shifting Todd Frazier over to first base and Ronald Guzman and Greg Bird to the bench. Kiner-Falefa posted a 1.167 OPS with four home runs before spring camp was shut down and has continued to impress during summer camp, with Woodward saying the 25-year-old “has been our best guy.” That’s all well and good, but Kiner-Falefa has been a light-hitting utility player/catcher throughout the minors and majors to this point, so we’re not expecting much.”

they would be far better off seeing if guzman matriculates than letting some multi-position guy who’s NEVER had any prospect weight start at 3B. guzman looked to be a big deal coming up.

Hi Grey,

Good to be back talking about Baseball again. Crossing my fingers the rug doesn’t get pulled the week leading up like it did back in March.

My leagues was one of the few that had actually not drafted as we typically wait until the weekend before the season, so we are drafting this upcoming weekend. Just wondering if you are heading into any drafts with the same mindset as you did in March or if you are switching the way you draft (outside of avoiding COVID players or ones that may not be around all season).

I’m thinking along the lines of some of your standard advice such as:
– Pass on the top tier SPs
– SAGNOF
– Punt Catchers

Looking forward to catching up on updated rankings these next few days and hoping I finally get to see some baseball next week!

I have paralysis of analysis with my relievers. So, another reliever question.

Mets manager came out a week ago and said he may use a closer by committee approach. I was thinking of making a trade for Diaz before these comments and held off not knowing how many save or hold opportunities he would get with Lugo and Betances in the pen too.

I’m in a saves + holds league. Britton had 32 saves+holds last year and will be the closer at least for the first week or so of the season. ATC projections show a high WHIP for Britton. Would you rather have Diaz or Britton? My relievers are Rogers, Anderson, Britton and Workman.

Grey missed the bigger news yesterday. Padres let go Juan Lagares opt for Free Agency, and opens the door for Edward Olivares.

Looking for info on Edward. His last few seasons in the minors make him look like what many expected from Buxton in the majors. Any incite on Olivares. Sounds like a Lefty platoon for Grisham.

It sucks as Grisham is young and deserves more than to split time. I assume Will Myers and Pham are locks for the OF.

Any love for Olivares or incite on his abilities?

Hey Grey!

Nice one on Puig! Just added him in my roto league for the SB upside. Hopefully he’ll steal a couple for us.

Had a question about pitching for my 12-team H2H league with deep pitching. With E-Rod hitting the IL (uggh), I need a dart throw SP. It’s kinda ugly but here goes: Means, Bassitt, Newcomb, Taijuan (!!!) Walker, Whitley, Gonsolin, Plesac, dot dot dot.

Do you have a feeling about any of those guys leading up to the season? Like who has the most upside if things break his way and he gets a shot as a starter?

I think you and the Razzball fam would really like this team. I was drafting 10/12 and came away with Sexy Dr Pepper, Story, Fun The Jewels Fast, K Marte, Jimenez, Giolito, Osuna, and Glasnow to start things off.

It just feels nice to be able to draft and talk some fantasy even though it might seem like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic with all that’s going on!

Hope you continue to be well and thanks for all that you do.

Question – Have pick 5 and am keeping Turner. Betts, Acuna kept, assuming Bellinger and Yelich go before my pick. My best options are Story -Trout – Soto – Lindor – Ramirez. Obviously cant go Lindor or Story with Turner already, If Trout goes, would you go with Soto or Ramirez, already having Turner already on your roster? Love Soto but am a tad skeptical having two Of my early players from the same in case of an outbreak. Would i be crazy to pass on Soto for Ramirez or would you do the same?

yo yo Grey! Long time. I am getting back into baseball finally. A little review: I actually got the COVID-19 back in March, 4 months ago way at the beginning of all this. I was only mildly sick for a couple of days and normally would have totally worked through it. But I was careful and quarantined and got tested. Back then it took 5 days for the test results. By the time I got them I was all well again. Losing my sense of smell was the weirdest part. None of my family got it from me which is weird but so much of this pandemic is weird. I was listening to the podcast and you talking about the testing accuracy. It is just not 100%. I know people who were almost dying from pulmonary complications of the COVID-19 but tested negative 4 times! Later antibody tests confirmed there had it though. So yeah this year could get fucked up and I could see large disruptions as players test positive.
Anyway how have you been?? Too bad about your hair.
so I lost Price. My SP are Clevinger, Darvish, Garret Richards, Cease, Heaney, Wheeler. Joah James (is he even a SP). No question here just wonder what you thought of that lineup. Rich Hill is available, so is Yonny and Canning.

Also in my OF I have Acuna, JD Davis, Laureano, Luis Robert, Soler and Cruz for DH. How can I get Puig in there? Also what about Cespedes (laughing inside how you pronounce that one)?

Grey,

What a crazy year it’s been. My league is usually a 5×5 OPS head to head, but we’ve decided to switch it up to Roto just for this year. Normally I punt starting pitching and stack stud offensive players to pair with stud closers.

With the 60 game schedule and the implementation of the DH in both leagues, I was thinking about going a little heavier on the aging/buy low guys like Chris Davis, Corey Seager, Joey Votto, Yoenis Cespedes and use the money saved at auction to grab a couple top of the line arms.

Thoughts?

I’m tired and it’s only night 1. Will let you know tomorrow what’s up. Also our son wants to go to the mainland in 7 days, i.e., the day before opening day and do I want to go back. So most likely I will go back with him. His crew is on the mainland so there’s no point to punish him.

Cheers,
Ante

Good stuff.

What a horrible thought, to wake from a coma, in middle of this shit storm, that is 2020!

I have to admit, that piece stood out for me in this write-up. What a scenario!

I think there’s hope for Grey to follow Spielberg’s footsteps (or Spielberg’s non-union Mexican equivalent’s footsteps) and release a ‘Grey’s Amazing Stories’ tv series.

Much appreciated on the write-up, Grey.
