Is it me or do you hear a 3-something ERA and you’re like, “Damn, he’s struggling!” The way pitching is now, if you’re not rocking a 2.50 ERA or lower, I want to know why and which mafia gangster is paying you to throw games for DraftKings? Ya know, we’re less than a year away from a huge suspension happening. It’s going to rock the sport and people are going to be like, “Wow, what a shame. He had such a promising future and he threw it all away for a $5 parlay that Robbie Ray pants would rip in the ass during his first start back.” And that’s me reading the tea leaves to you! So, yesterday, Colin Rea threw another gem — 7 IP, 1 ER, 3 hits, zero walks, 4 Ks, but his ERA is at 3.31, so which mafia figure are you working for?! Joey Lucchesi of the Cannoli Crime Family? Rea was the top streamer-off-waivers this week for shallower weekly leagues, right? He was in my leagues. Streamonator even likes his next start better. May you giddy up into the sunset for his next start with your favorite Oakleys, assuming Lucchesi doesn’t break any of your legs first. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Jackson Chourio – 1-for-2 and his 7th homer. If he had off on Monday and played Tuesday through Sunday, I would’ve benched him, so my hats off to the schedule makers. You did well for the first time since that swingers couple, who lived in a log cabin in Maine, stopped doing the MLB schedule.

Willy Adames – 2-for-3, 2 RBIs and a slam (10) and legs (9). Any guesses where Adames is ranked on the Player Rater for shortstops? Top 5, 7 or 9? Before or after CJ Abrams? Before or after Brice Turang? Damn, oh-for-3!

Alejandro Kirk – 1-for-3 and his 2nd homer. If you had Kirk as your 2nd catcher in your two-catcher fantasy league, congrats on the big night! That moves you within 63 points of first!

Jose Berrios – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.93. This matchup (at Uecker’s) scared the shizz out of me. That he came within an out of a Quality Start gleams my pants grapes for starting him.

Gunnar Henderson – 3-for-5, 3 runs and his 21st homer. Aaron Judge who?! He’s a Yankees outfielder who currently leads the majors in homers and he hit 14 homers since May 15th, and the next closest had nine. It’s a figure of speech, Random Italicized Voice. “Aaron Judge who” is a figure of speech?

James McCann – 2-for-3, 2 runs and a slam (2) and legs (1). Okay, whoever called him McCan’t needs to stop right now. It’s not very nice, and wrong.

Corbin Burnes – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.08. He gave up a home run to Alex Jackson, but it was after an error so it didn’t count. Okay, monthly diatribe time: If a pitcher gives up a home run, that should be earned, whether it’s after a two-out error or not. He still gave up the homer, doesn’t matter if he was supposed to be out of the inning or not. If a guy is, say, on third, and a fielder boots a ball and that run scores, sure, that’s unearned. But getting a free pass to pitch as poor as possible when an error happens with two outs? C’mon, that’s just silly.

Ryan Pepiot – 6 IP, 4 ER, 9 hits, zero walks, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.17. Streamonator doesn’t like his next start (it’s vs. the Braves), and I can kinda go either way with it. Classic bit of non-advice there!

Tyler Soderstrom – 1-for-3 and his 2nd homer. Fun fact! I used to love my Soderstrom but my doctor said the bubbles weren’t good for my GERD.

Fernando Tatis Jr. – 1-for-5 and his 13th homer, 2nd homer in two games, and third homer in four games. Fun The Jewels! Fun The Jewels fast!

Dylan Cease – 6 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.36 vs. Joey Estes – 5 IP, 3 ER, 10 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.78. Padres vs. A’s is the 248th biggest rivalry in California. The bottom of the top 250: 248. Padres vs. A’s 249. CVS customers vs. the glass cases at CVS where the deodorant is kept. 250. Pimples vs. Dr. Pimple Popper.

Jake Cronenworth – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 10th homer, and 2nd homer in three games. Padres have had a lot of solid fantasy contributors but none have been bigger than Machado if bigger meant the opposite of what it means. (Me talk in riddles.)

Kyle Tucker – Off his crutches already, which sucks because I wrote this super sweet message on his crutches in silver highlighter and now they’re being put into storage. Alas, he might return when eligible on Friday.

Spencer Arrighetti – 5 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 5.33 vs. Kyle Harrison – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 4 hits, zero walks, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.96. Ugh, both of these guys deserved the wins, but who deserves something? Are you Descartes? How do you know what a man deserves? By the way, watch Ren Faire on Max. It’s so freakin’ good. Big time Astros fans on that show, and he cries.

Luis Robert Jr. – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer, hitting .192. Don’t freak about that average. He only has 13 games played. That, sadly, isn’t a joke.

Corey Julks – 1-for-5 and his 3rd homer. He’s really found a home at the top of the White Sox lineup, amongst their myriad of options. [scanning their lineup for an option, ten minutes later] Okay.

Erick Fedde – 7 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.10. Fedde has been one of the few bright spots on the White Sux, which is why he’ll be playing for a different team by August 1st.

Logan Gilbert – 6 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 6 hits, zero walks, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.19. LoGi don’t play, gee! (That rhymes. No, it doesn’t make sense too. Who are you, The Make Sense Police?)

Cal Raleigh – 1-for-5, 4 RBIs and his 12th homer. “I told ya where it’s at.” That’s Sir Mix-A-Lot watching Raleigh.

Seth Lugo – 7 IP, 4 ER, 9 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.36. No, I am not wishing regression on anyone I don’t roster. That’s not nice to say–Gah! Okay, I am! But Lugo really should be regressing a bit, it’s not just me jotting down notes from Angel Heart as I learn how to do voodoo cursing on him.

Hunter Renfroe – Out with a fractured big toe. Bet he wishes it wasn’t quite as big.

Carlos Rodon – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 hits, zero walks, 3 Ks, ERA at 2.93. What mafioso is he working for?!

Elias Diaz – Left yesterday’s game with tightness in his calf. A tight calf says, “Boo.”

Chris Paddack – 6 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 6 hits, zero walks, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.79. It’s crazy to think he was at one time considered a hot prospect that got the loins acting like lions and roaring, because he looks like shizz. Though, yesterday’s start was loved by the Streamonator for a reason.

Royce Lewis – 1-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 4th homer. He’s now on pace for 42 games and 41 homers. “Are you ready for the Can’t Stay Healthy 50-Yard Dash?” Royce Lewis, Luis Robert Jr. and Tyler O’Neill are setting up along a track. “Beautiful day out here in Daytona. Last night I saw a girl, who I believe was at least 19 who made me feel 40 again. She was at The Mechanical Bull Bar, oddly named since it’s been inoperable since 2019. Anyway, Royce Lewis, Luis Robert Jr. and Tyler O’Neill are out on the track and they’ve all picked their teammate to push them in their full body casts. Not sure I agree with Lewis picking Buxton to push him, that’s a double hammy pull waiting to happen. Okay, on your mark, get set…Go! Oh, man, all three of them are waving white flags, screaming, ‘It’s my quad!’ You do hate to see it.”

that cabbage joke i made few days ago (not the lettice part) when e.montero had a 3 base error leading to 3 runs against COL for STL.

why so sure t.marcano’s betting isn’t good? i mean the fact that he WAS betting wasn’t good for it to get found out for him, obviously, but who’s to say he wasn’t a winning bettor (possibly with inside info from time to time too; think being friends with martha stewart, and she only got like a few months when she clammed up about the real perps in that). unless you read somewhere that he was also losing tons of money betting.

and it’s really hard to lose non parlays at anything close to 95%, almost had to be like 7 teamers or something as a very high % of your bets to lose at that rate. it’s basically not possible if str bets.

yeah just did the math, to be expected to lose at least 95% of your bets, you’d likely have to be making 5 teamer parlays (or more) per bet. this assumes you are betting on events that are 50/50 by their betting line, bunching those together. if he was intentionally putting underdogs together in those 5 teamers (or 3, 4 teamers, whatever) this becomes much easier to obtain that loss rate.

also, and this is funny, it’s now quite likely that the only reason he’s not going to go into massive debt (or further massive debt) is SINCE he got kicked out of MLB and it’s large contracts (even for a player like him).

to be fair to marcano’s betting “acumen” if he was making almost entirely parlay bets, losing parlays at a 95% clip isn’t close to as bad as losing str bets at that rate. it’d mean he won 5% of the time, on bets that pay out a LOT more than the x you put in (not commensurately at odds though, parlays are the biggest sucker bet in the market, the bookshops favorite their clients are making). he’s still be losing very badly almost certainly (unless the 5ish% he won were much bigger bets than the losers).

you simply almost mathematically could not achieve a 95% (i read he won 4.3% so a bit worse) loss rate if all he bet was straight over/under bets. be like losing a coin flip 19 out of 20 times, in a much bigger sample than 20 events. he must’ve been parlaying mostly over/unders, say 4 teamers and only ran slightly badly. i saw it mentioned his bets were over/unders or just winning team that day bets. these had to be stacked together over hundreds of bets to achieve that 96.7% lost bets.

this is the exact reason why poker is said to be a skill game vs sports betting. if you only bet single one game at a time over/unders, and tried to lose on purpose, you wouldn’t basically ever achieve 95% loss rate.

for str single bets it would be, the only way you’d go broke is from enough bets over time, and the juice the bookshops get. but if you say made all those over/unders into 4 teamer parlays of 4 separate over/unders, very easy to lose (esp if more than 4 teamers). say a bankroll of 100 bets at x per bet, you’d lose slowly from the juice, and likely be near 50% neutral luck. if you instead turned those 100 bets into 25 four teamers bets, very easy to lose those.

Since I can’t keep Profar, I was thinking of trading for Friedl (cheap keeper). In a vacuum with the info I gave you: hang onto Profar, ride it out and see if he keeps it up knowing I can’t keep him, or trade for Friedl with the idea that Profar might slow down a bit and Friedl is a cheap keeper…what say you?

2.      I can keep him in the 13th round next year – is that exceptional value in your opinion?
3.      Can you name some hitters (assume no keeper value) that I should aim for?
Thanks!

12 team points league that has keepers

What do you think about Juan Soto for Adolis + Julio Rodriguez. All are keeper eligible. I’ve run it through the Trade Analyzer, but wanted to get your thoughts on giving away generational talent Soto for could be generational talent Julio.

Or, should I try to get Gunnar (that might be a lil hometown bias)

I tried to post this comment earlier, but I can’t find it. Sorry if this is a double post.

For most of this season I have been rostering Royce, LouBob, Josh Lowe, Josh Jung, Nolan Jones, Willson Contreras and Tyler O’Neill. I’ve since upgraded that list of medical maladies via a trade which included swapping O’Neill for Buxton. Should work out, right? LOL

One guess which place my team is sitting currently. One guess…

Speaking of Nolan Jones, he’s now played 7 games at AAA on his latest rehab assignment, hitting .250 with 1 HR, 5 RBI and a .766 OPS. But the Rockies seem content to let him stay in AAA so they can give Jake Cave (yes, that Jake Cave) regular playing time.

Are the Rockies the worst managed team in all of MLB? I think that answer is yes.

I rest my case:

“The Rockies elected not to activate Nolan Jones (knee/back) from the 10-day injured list Monday as previously planned, as the club determined that the outfielder needs more time in the minors to find his proper swing, MLB.com reports.”

This is a player with 547 at bats at the MLB level over 160 games and over 730 at bats at the AAA level since 2021. It’s not like he’s a rookie who skipped right from AA to MLB. But yeah, Rockies, keep him down at AAA so you idiots can keep trotting Jake Cave (or insert other washed up 37 year old MLB player) out there.

Any reason to hold onto Civale in a keeper? Think he figures things out at any point this year? Considering dropping him for a middle reliever like Fernando Cruz.

I’ll give Lugo some credit for not letting that start turn into a disaster. He is way too hittable for the really good lineups. I looked at his game log, the only other good lineup he faced was Baltimore and he was bad in that one too. Solid pitcher, and fortunately he’ll face way more trash lineups than good ones going forward.
