Yesterday, Carlos Gomez was designated for assignment.  Outfielders in the tier of guys in the preseason I told you not to draft:  Pence, Kemp, Gomez, Schwarber, Hanley, Corey Dickerson, Ellsbury, Brantley, Adam Jones and Carlos Gonzalez.  I’ll take a 7-for-10.  You believed still in the preseason about Carlos Gomez, didn’t you?  *touches finger to nose but not for a sobriety test*  I’m more surprised by the people shocked by Gomez’s fall from grace.  *makes crazy, rolly finger motion by ear*  Anyone who saw him in his prime knew he was gonna find a steep cliff.  Even when he broke out, the underlying stats told you something had to change or he wasn’t going to have continued success.  *sticks finger in nose, smiles*  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Giancarlo Stanton – Sat out yesterday due to his hips.  What’s funny is sometimes, when we’re alone, I call him Gianshakira, because his hips don’t lie.  On a side note, since I own Giancarlo in a CBS league that costs $150 per person, I wish I would’ve known to set my daily CBS fantasy on Sunday for the week.  Nice 404 error page, CBS fantasy.

David Phelps – 5 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks.  Grey pregaming, “Yo, Phelps is gonna be Poppa Large big shout on the east coast as a true what?  A true fuschnick.  With Phelps getting a can’t stop until I get enough, too hot, hot damn-type line.”  After the start was over, “I guess he’s okay to stream, but he needs to go more than five innings.”

Wei-Yin Chen – Played catch from 60 feet and reported no issue.  It’s all about those last six inches — that’s what she’s never said!

Jeff Samardzija – 5 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.23.  Always a coin flip what you’re going to get from this schmohawk.  Yesterday, the coin came up headszija.  Could’ve easily been tailszija.

Brandon Crawford – 2-for-4 and his 11th homer, hitting .277.  He’s hitting near-.400 in the last week, but a 7-for-8 on Monday will do that to you.  A 7-for-8 game on other days of the week would do it too.

Bryce Harper – Sat out again with a stiff neck.  About the only thing Harper’s made stiff this year with his play.  Now the Nationals are saying he hasn’t shown improvement and a DL stint is possible.  It’s also possible you’re not the greatest player in the game if you’re only great every other year.

Jayson Werth – 2-for-3, 3 runs, 3 RBIs and his 15th homer, hitting .253.  That was his 2nd homer in two days. “Five.”  “Alex, what is the number of games Werth would need to home run in a row before I picked him up?”  “Yes, we also would’ve accepted, ‘How many fingers you have on your right hand?'”

Trea Turner – 1-for-4, 1 run, hitting .286.  The other day a reporter asked Turner where he got his speed from and he said, “My grandpa has a wooden leg and he’ll tell you I got my speed from him.”  Does Turner think it’s the 1800s and we’re gonna believe fables?  Because we’re not a gullible people.  Now, excuse me, while I go lie in a tanning bed for Vitamin D, read up on blue waffle disease and shave my eyelashes to avoid eyelash lice.

Josh Tomlin – 4 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 4.18.  Ouch, that stands out as especially excruciating too because I started him in my Scout league, where I’m holding onto first barely, and, for some reason that is beyond me, the league ends at the end of August.  “It avoids the frustration of guys getting shut down in September; that frustration everyone knows from H2H leagues.”  “Um, okay, but this is a roto league.”  “Right.  Good luck!”

Francisco Lindor – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 14th homer, hitting .305.  Lindor’s stats aren’t completely analogous with this comparison, but he reminds me of Lorenzo Cain last year.  Number three hitter on a top offensive team is just good to own.

Jose Ramirez – 3-for-4, 1 RBI and his 14th steal, hitting .309, hitting near-.475 in the last week as one of the hottest schmotatoes in the land.  Also, has two homers and three steals in the last eleven games.  Also, I was crazy about Ramirez last year, which somehow equates in my pea brain that I should like Delino DeShields again next year.  Someone save me!

Nate Eovaldi – Left yesterday’s game with elbow discomfort.  He said it hurts right by his tattoo that reads, “Throws 97 MPH, Results May Vary.”

Didi Gregorius – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his 14th homer.  Wanna feel old?  Notorious B.I.G. died 19 years ago.  From the time he died until now is the same time from The Beatles invasion to me in high school.  Holy crap, I’m old.

Gary Sanchez – 4-for-5, 2 runs and his 1st homer.  The ball didn’t look to be going out at first, then Yankee fans prayed into their gift baskets they got from Jeter and it sailed out.

Steven Wright – Won’t start on Thursday due to a jammed shoulder.  Steven Wright said, “I much prefer to jam peaches.”

Drew Pomeranz – 5 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA on Sawx is 5.26.  Better.  Still not butter.  More like margarine that is overpriced and therefore not at all economical.

Ross Detwiler – 8 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 2 Ks.  Seriously, Billy Beane takes pillow stuffing, puts a flannel shirt around it and he’s got a 5th starter-slash-scarecrow.

Justin Verlander – 7 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.42 vs. Felix Hernandez 7 IP, 1 ER, 7 baserunners (4 BBs), 8 Ks, ERA at 3.39.  Also, in this game, Robinson Cano (2-for-4) hit his 25th homer, and Nelson Cruz (3-for-4) hit his 28th.  At least I think it was this game, but the Mariners might’ve also just put a projection screen up on the field and showed the 2011 All-Star Game.

Blake Snell – 1 2/3 IP, 2 ER, but three more unearned for the heart-stopping box scare.  He goes home for his next start vs. the Padres and a little “Friar, may I?”

Jose Bautista – Hit the DL.  Originally hurt his knee when he caught his spike on the turf.  In unrelated Spike news, when is Degrassi Junior High reuniting on Netflix?  I can’t handle this!  Candle!

Troy Tulowitzki – 2-for-3, 5 RBIs and his 19th homer, hitting .248.  On our Player Rater, he’s ranked just outside the top 200 overall, by fellow schmohawk, Sano, and Addison Reed.  *tries to contain laughter*  Tulo’s been about as valuable as Addison Reed.  Nice.

Melvin Upton – 1-for-3 and three steals (21, 22, 23).  With Bautista sidelined, the BJs may dole out some more BJ.

Devon Travis – 2-for-5, 1 run, 1 RBI.  What are you waiting for to pick him up?  Someone to climb your building with suction cups wearing a Travis jersey?  Cause it’s not happening (probably, but this year, you can never be certain).

J.A. Happ – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 2.96.  In his last top 100 pitchers, JB apologized for not ranking Happ high enough.  I don’t share the same enthusiasm.  He’s 33 years old with a 7.8 K/9, 2.7 BB/9 and 3.99 xFIP.  Those are fine numbers.  Not bad.  Drastically different than, say, Keuchel?  Not really.  Obviously the ERA results have been, but Happ could easily put up a 4.50 ERA month and it wouldn’t shock me.

Edwin Jackson – 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners (3 BBs), 7 Ks, ERA at 4.19.  He held the Pirates hitless through five innings.  I feel like every time I look up Edwin is no hitting the Pirates.  Note to self:  Look up more.

Travis Jankowski – 2-for-4, 1 run and his 25th steal, hitting near-.450 in the last week.  I think you people — yeah, you people! — don’t realize how many steals Jankowski is getting in such a small period of time.  He has 185 ABs.  That’s a 75 steal pace.  Make you say Jankowski!

Ryan Vogelsong – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.67.  Some of you oldies may remember Vogelsong’s 2011 season when he threw 179 2/3 IP and had a 2.71 ERA.  I don’t think it’s deja Vogelsong, but he could piece together a solid couple of weeks.

Francisco Cervelli – Left the game with wrist discomfort.  Oh, man, Cervelli is totally the ‘merely a flesh wound’ guy, isn’t he?  It’s like once a week with Cervelli and an injury.  Call him, “It’s Merely A Concussion” Cervelli.

Jonathan Lucroy – 1-for-3 and his 17th homer.  Damn, big time mea culpa on this guy.  Didn’t think he had it in him.  Great news is we can sit back and watch people overdraft him next year.  Like in 2015 when someone in my Tout league drafted him in the 2nd round.  Hashtag never forget.

Ricky Nolasco – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA down to 5.14.  Damn!  King Kong and Hector Santiago got nothing on Nolasco!

Jason Hammel – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.90.  Would’ve been a good year to only draft variations on the name Hammel.

Addison Russell – 1-for-4 and his 13th homer, hitting .243.  Russell is like a slugger who specializes in 1-for-4’s with solo homers, only he’s a 17-homer hitter.

Rich Hill – Says he won’t pitch this Friday due to his blister.  A blister that will now have knocked him out for over a month.  Think this calls for bringing out one of our oldest glossary terms, Hill is pulling a Kotchman.

Justin Turner – Got the day off yesterday after starting 27 straight games.  Wow, 27 straight games.  Cal Ripken once hit Gregg Zaun with a pillowcase filled with turds for 27 straight days like it was nothing!

Scott Kazmir – 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.44.  This start came against the Phils.  Let me give you a taste of the new math with an equation:  A non-exceptional start vs. the Phils + Kazmir = Jeff Buckley treading into water in boots.  Hmm, math is slightly off there, but I’d have a hard time holding onto Kazmir in most mixed leagues.

Kenley Jansen – 2/3 IP, 3 ER.  Kazaam!

Freddy Galvis – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 11th homer, and 2nd day in a row with a homer.  God of Schmotatoes stands in a dank police office.  Schmotatoes are marched in, one as disheveled as the next.  The God of Schmotatoes points to Galvis.  And that’s the story of how Freddy got fingered.

Jeremy Hellickson – 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.65.  Sonavabench!  I knew I should’ve started this schmohawk but the Stream-o-nator was like, “No, don’t do it, Grey, but please call me at 3 AM because I’m lonely.”  Stupid, lonely robot!

Freddie Freeman – 3-for-3 and his 20th and 21st homer and 47th and 48th RBIs.  I might need a small miracle and a large slump for him to avoid getting to 60 RBIs.  Don’t put it past me to pray for that shizz either.  See, I sweat the small stuff!

Chris Carter – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 26th homer, hitting .217.  JB said Carter is a total BILF.

Anthony DeSclafani – 5 IP, 3 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.11.  Someone didn’t understand why The DeScla Man wasn’t a great start yesterday.  Guys and five girl readers, an away start in Busch isn’t great.

Eugenio Suarez – 1-for-4 and his 18th homer.  Damn, Votto, you let Eugenio catch you again!

Matt Carpenter – 2-for-3, 2 runs and his 15th homer.  Carpenter really nailed that one!

Jhonny Peralta – 1-for-4 and his 6th homer.  The Superfluous H hasn’t been himself this year — between injuries and feeling exasperated with Starbucks’ baristas misspelling Jhonny — but he could get hot for the final six weeks if he’s healthy.

Jaime Garcia – 8 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.93. Yesterday, he got into the ninth inning only throwing 85 pitches.  The start before — 8 IP, 0 ER, 11 Ks — the next start.  Dot dot dot.  Well, I don’t trust him at all, so I dropped him.

Jose Quintana – 7 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 5 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.85 vs. Ian Kennedy – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.91.  Quintana and Kennedy are tied together in the history books, as well.  Kennedy almost went to war with Cuba.  In Cuba, there’s Guantanamo Bay, which with my mispronunciation, I call Quintana, and he’s put hitters on lockdown all year.  See?  Don’t mess with Quintmo!

David Peralta – Will undergo season-ending wrist surgery.  Backdate that to April.

Yasmany Tomas – Didn’t start yesterday due to a stiff neck.  He believes he got a Viagra stuck in his throat.

Robbie Ray – 7 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 4 Ks in Metco.  Now that’s where the Robbie hits the road!  Stream-o-Nator‘s got a “Doinggggg” for Ray in every start, so I was hesitant to start him here, but if you cry wolf enough times, eventually Randy Wolf shows up at your door with a restraining order.

Jake Barrett – 1/3 IP, 2 ER and his 4th blown save to go with his 4 saves.  Robbie Ray deserved better, but, you know what else, I DESERVED BETTER!  Nothing like finally getting your chance to be a closer and ruining it.  If he were to close two months of games, maybe he’d be the closer to start next year, then in three years time (yeah, I’m skipping ahead), Barrett gets a $35 million contract.  But no!  Barrett looks like he should be in the minors.  Diamondbacks have little to play for, so they should continue to run him out there, but Enrique Burgos could get a look.  (Like the D-Backs even get save chances.)

Jean Segura – 3-for-5, 2 runs and two steals (21, 22), hitting .311.  I hope he gets to 35 steals.  Not because I own him, but so I can justify my undying love for him next year.  Then, of course, he’ll fail.  I love owning players in their down years and not in their up years.  Stupid Saberhagenmetrics.

T.J. Rivera – 1-for-5 as he was called up, and played 3rd.  Rivera was crushing the ball in the PCL, but the PCL is like hitting with an aluminum bat on the moon, so if you take that away, he’s a 27-year-old utility man, which sounds like Harrison Ford before American Graffiti.

Bartolo Colon – 7 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 8 Ks, EAR at 3.35.  I streamed Colon yesterday, and I didn’t even need prunes.  I gotta say, it was a good day.

Jose Reyes – Will begin a rehab assignment at Low-A Brooklyn.  At the Brooklyn stadium, they serve microbrew with grapefruit notes, free range chicken sausages that were farmed in the Adirondacks, every umpire is required to be knowledgable of the best coffeehouses in the area and everyone’s walk-up music is a Decemberists’ song.

    My Closer shituation is getting worse every day. Kimbrel has knee pain and could be a DL candidate, Andrew Miller is pitching in the 6th as much as he is the 9th and David Robertson has blown 4 of his last 8 save chances and hitters have a .958 OPS against him in his last 11 innings.

    Trade deadline has already passed and the playoffs for this league start on Monday. I am in first place and have a good shot to win the league this year, so I don’t want my closer shituation to cost me the league title.

    This is a dynasty league where you keep your entire roster, so part of me doesn’t really want to just cut these guys, but I feel like I might need to. SAGNOF amirite?

    I’m definitely not going to cut Miller, because he is still getting some saves and he provides elite ratios and strikeouts which are helping me.

    Kimbrel and Robertson though. Kimbrel hasn’t really been his dominant self of years past and being a Sox fan, I’ve watched virtually every game this year. Or has Kimbrel been pretty close to what he’s always been and I am just noticing the hiccups more this year because he plays for Boston?

    Robertson is having his worst year since he was a rookie I believe. ERA over 4 with a 1.42 WHIP. Career low 10.1 k/9 with a 4.5 BB/9 and 1.2 HR/9. I think he’s easily the most droppable between the three.

    Options for me to pick up include:

    Kelvin Herrera
    Jim Johnson
    Brandon Kintzler
    Tyler Thornburg

    Should I drop Kimbrel and Robertson for two of those guys or just Robertson? Or should I just hold?

    • Odor's Odor-izzi spray says:

      @Billy Tell: Robertson for Herrera seems reasonable enough for this year, could hurt to start next year though if/when Wade Davis takes the job back. Pray for a Kimbrel DL stint to open a roster spot? I’m a sox fan too and it hurts…he blows up in non save situations a ton though, bet his numbers are decent when a save is on the table, except for the last 4bb fiasco. Jim Johnson sucks and shouldn’t be closing next year, but Thornburg looks like the 2017 Brewers closer. He’d be number 2 for me behind Herrera

                For instance: say I have Jose Fernandez, but I don’t feel as though I need him as much as an outfielder…WELL….I can offer him, for say, Goldschmidt, Rizzo, Arenado, Bryant, or Trout…here’s the catch, the other owner of those peoples is REQUIRED to say yes, given that they agree with said trade.

        @Grey: I was effin busy all day with work shizz! Is your OF as bad as mine with the 1 catcher? Yeah my OF was pretty bad! At least I learned a couple things in my 1st season doing Scout;

        1. Get a decent catcher and fill in with 2 others

        2. Middle Relievers don’t mean shizz, unless you’re cuffing your closer. Draft as many SP’s that you can, because you can’t stream! I only drafted 10 SP’s, Holland and Rea never even saw the lineup and McCullers only score a handful of points. My excess of Mid Relief like, C Smith, O’Day, Soria, Yimi, Reed, Tolleson and Barraclough also never made it into the lineup (Tolleson was there in April). Scout is a totally different animal, but it was a lot like learning RCL last year, so I’ll be back if RB partners up again.

    I want to add a streamer spot but I’m not sure of who to let go of for it. Im thinking of dropping Duval or kepler just cause I don’t really need two bench bats. Or one of my 4 closers, but none of them are great so having 4 might be needed.

    Who would you let go of for a streamer?

    Thanks for your help! Loving the podcast as well!

    The Dodgers keep looking for healthy SPs. What about Jose deleon – except for one start, he’s been dominant in triple A. Also, has anyone noticed that Tom Murphy had been crushing the ball in Triple A with huge power – imagine him in Coors – not many catchers can hit like him.

    Great write up! Is this just an injury plagued year for McCutchen? Last year wasn’t too great either and his steals are declining just like you mentioned in the pre-season. Do you think he gets back to top 100 next year? Trying to decide to move on from him in a keeper league this year. Drop him and pick up Hamilton because I am behind in steals, but could catch the leader if Hamilton keeps this pace up. Thanks!

    20 team dynasty. 6×6 h2h with k/bb and ops extra cats. in 1st. looking for 4th straight title.
    roster is posey, papi, cano, villar, donaldson, beltran, cutch, fowler, dickerson, with maybin, gurriel, morneau, and matt duffy on bn. pitchers are shark, jaime garcia, estrada, hamels, eickhoff, conley, wainwright, eovaldi, hill, brett anderson, aj ramos, cody allen, dyson, feliz, barraclough.

    been offered keuchel, tony watson, and holliday for gurriel, eovaldi and dickerson or morneau. none of the guys i’m getting are terribly appealing to me but they upgrade my team at least a little this year. no clue what gurriel can do, but do you think this gives me enough of a boost to deal him or do the players i’m getting not move the needle enough for the deal to be worthwhile?

    10 team H2H Points
    Pitcher Scoring: WIN (+3), LOSS (-3), IP (+3), K (+1), BB (-1), SAVE (+3), HOLD (+1), ER (-2), HIT (-1), SO (+3), NH (+10), PG (+15)

    (4) SP: Carrasco, Price, Duffy, Shoemaker
    (3) RP: Robertson, Osuna, Giles
    Bench: (Taillon, Skaggs, Paxton, Manaea)

    (1) DL: Salazar

    Was tied with my opponent before yesterday but then he got 17pts from Samardzija @MIA, 16pts from Verlander @SEA, and 22pts from Happ vs. TB and a couple saves so now I’m down by like 70 pts..

    Taillon is pitching now for me and I’ve got Duffy vs. CHA (8.4) tonight while my opponent will be starting Tillman @OAK (-6.1). I’m hoping I can catch up over the next two days because he only has 2 more starts planed those days (Darvish vs. DET & Roark vs. ATL) while I’ve had a bunch I’ve been waiting to use all week:

    8/12
    Price vs. ARI (16.9)*
    Manaea vs. SEA (11.2)*
    Carrasco vs. LAA (10.9)*
    Skaggs @CLE (9.1)*
    Cashner vs. CHA (6.0)
    Nelson vs. CIN (4.5)
    Rodon @MIA (2.8)
    Nova @LAN (-6.4)
    Ventura @MIN (-7.8)

    8/13
    McCarthy vs. PIT (10.6)*
    T. Anderson @PHI (8.2)
    Gausman @SF (6.1)
    Paxton @OAK (1.2)*
    Shoemaker @CLE (3.1)*
    McHugh @TOR (-0.6)
    Ventura @MIN (-6.4)

    1) My originally planned starts are marked with asterisk but I just read that Paxton now won’t be starting this weekend. There’s probably no reason to change any of my planned starts for tomorrow but would it be worth dropping Paxton to also start Nova @LAN (-6.4) since he RP eligible? Or just go with the 4 starts selected there?

    2) As far as Saturday 8/12 goes, what starts should I use there? McCarthy is still a wildcard because there’s no guarantee he is gonna pitch and Gausman is RP eligible which means I can start a max of 5 guys there if needed…

      Grey says:

      1. Go with original starts that are asterisked 2. McCarthy vs. PIT (10.6)*

      Gausman @SF (6.1)
      Shoemaker @CLE (3.1)*

      • ebudz says:

        @Grey: Alright cool! Thanks!

        (4) SP: Carrasco, Price, Duffy, Shoemaker
        (3) RP: Robertson, Osuna, Giles
        Bench: (Taillon, Skaggs, Paxton, Manaea)

        (1) DL: Salazar

        So seeing how none of McCarthy, T. Anderson, and Gausman or rostered right now I’ll need to drop 3 of my SPs to grab each one of them…

        S0 in what order do you prefer these starts points-wise? SON’s order?

        McCarthy vs. PIT (10.6)*
        T. Anderson @PHI (8.2)
        Gausman @SF (6.1)

        This will help me decide when to add guys and who to drop them for… I guess I’d lose Pax first (hopefully pick him up again for Monday), Manaea (drop him after games start tomorrow) and then I guess I’d drop Skaggs or Taillon (assuming McCarthy is actually starting).

    2) Also, Brian McCann is terrible. Would you swap him for Yadier Molina, Cameron Rupp, or Gary Sanchez?

    Thank you.

    With Bautista on the DL prolly two weeks minimum and 4 weeks left to try to make the playoffs should I sell Bautista for some offers given to me were ozuna, or fowler, trades for Bautista, another one was berrios / Skaggs and Choo for Bautista but I don’t like it too much… Should I take what I can get… Really want to make the playoffs… I could also drop dickey for an extra bat for sure and maybe grab ellsbury janakowski, werth, Melvin upton or soler instead of trading… Or Another trade offer for Bautista was for Justin upton.

        @Grey:

        Thanks. Thinking about offering Snell, Shoe, and Edwin Diaz for these two. I’m good on Saves, and giving Diaz to the trade partner would jump him over my next closest competition in the Saves category. I don’t like giving up Diaz’ K-Rate though.

    12-tm std H2H. Can Brad Miller last the season? Else I need another SS and would have to drop Adam Duvall or Adam otter sommelier for a schmo like Didi or Eugenio Suarez. Noticed Suarez raised his average, but it’s not significant. It’s prolly significant to him. I kinda like to see how Mr. Duval or Mr. Otter does for two more weeks before giving them the axe. Maybe Orlando Arcia can raise his average in that time, too? I suppose I’m f-d if I do and f-d if I don’t unless Brad Miller doesn’t f-up.

      Also, can Jaime Garcia win 4 more games? He states that he’s worked on his mechanics and will be aggressive and go after hitters. I would believe it if his manager said something to that effect. Matheny said he got ground balls early in the count and Garcia’s pitches would dance out of the zone at the last second.

    4X4 keeper league. I’m in first and I want to bring this baby home. I have Kershaw. My pitching looks likes this:
    SP: Sale, Hamels, Hendricks, Duffy, Fulmer, Taillon, Pomeranz DL Kershaw
    RP: Kimbrel, Dyson, Oh, Thornburg, Ottavino, Barrett

    I’m considering trading Kershaw for Greinke and Braun. Greinke has an amazing schedule ROS (3 vs SDP, 2 vs LAD and SF, 1 v ATL and 1 v WAS) and I think he shores up my staff. Fulmer, Duffy and Taillon might not be good down the stretch.

    Braun would upgrade Kemp for me.

    Do I do the deal or stand pat? Will my closers be able to close out the season for me, or do I need to upgrade there (Dyson and Kimbrel worry me in particular) instead?
