You have Eugenio Suarez as your middle infielder and are growing bored, so you check out The Replacements, and there’s so many possibilities.  Anything you want, dear, is fine, fine, fine, fine, fine.  Everything you say, dear, I’ll buy, buy, buy, buy, buy, buy, goodbye Eugenio.  He was merely a steward to better things.  Sorry, too formal, he was a waiter in the sky.  He played/was fair, don’t wanna complain.  Don’t want to treat him like a bum, don’t wanna ask Cougs and Ted who I should pick up in case of a tie.  Now, I like what I hear about Tim Anderson.  If bein’ wrong’s a crime, I’m waiver wiring forever.  If bein’ strong’s your kind of pick up, then I need help here this Tim’s got power like a feather.  If bein’ afraid is a crime, put the two players side by side.  Cause Tim’s at the SAGNOF party down the line.  So, Tim Anderson is just steals?  Well, not entirely, but that’s what he mostly is.  He can also hit for a solid average.  In the minors the last three years, he hit .364, .312 and .304.  The Honkey Sox seem happy to try him at leadoff, and, with his batting average skills, he should stick there.  The speed is real — stealing 49 bases last year in the minors.  I’d absolutely take a flyer on him for speed alone.  South Park isn’t the only place that has a Tim A. with wheels.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Robinson Chirinos – He’s been like a man possessed since he’s returned from injury, and now has four homers in ten games this year.  As in possessed by Babe Ruth’s ghost when it’s not hanging with Fatty Arbuckle’s ghost talking about running a train on Farrah Fawcett’s ghost.

Willson Contreras – This morning I was more optimistic on Contreras coming off his call-up and got swept in the tailwind of the everyone riding the Cubs’ coattails.  Now, I’m a bit more conservative on Contreras — Conserveras? — since it sounds like he won’t be up for long.  This was the same thing they said last year with Schwarber, so I’d still stash Contreras, but at the expense of, say, Gattis?  Meh.

A.J. Reed – Going strictly on my gut, I get the feeling Reed will be up by this time next week.  By the way, I just ate two Magic Eight Balls, so trust this gut.

Brandon Moss – This even shocks me, on the Player Rater, Moss has been more valuable than Belt, Carlos Santana, Hanley, Pujols, Abreu, Ryan Zimmerman, Freeman and A-Gon.  Just to name some 1st basemen.

Matt Adams – If he were alive 400 years ago, he might’ve heard this, “M. Adams, your Rubenesque figure is quite luscious, would you like to pose for a painting with nothing but an apple?”

Mitch Moreland – Another week, another insane amount of free agent 1st basemen.  This year feels particularly inflated with free agent 1st basemen.  Perhaps Prince Fielder wasn’t fat all those years but was pregnant with free agent 1st basemen and since he birthed them they are no longer powering him.  I wouldn’t completely disregard this possibility.

Pedro Alvarez – The Hitter-Tron is interested in Alvarez like it’s also interested in re-upping its subscription to Popular Mechanics.

Danny Espinosa – I get a kick out of people still asking about Trea Turner.  Was Dusty not clear when Turner was called up and he didn’t even play him when there was actual room for Turner to play?  That’s a kick in the plum basket, by the way.

Whit Merrifield – To Whit, I almost made Merrifield my lede subject.  Not because he sounds like he owns subjects, but because he’s been about as hot as they come recently.  I’m not sure he’s anything more than a hot schmotato though, and that’s a no-no on Buy ledes.

Wilmer Flores – I just went over him this morning.  Use your scrolly finger and have at it.  Doode, that’s not your scrolly finger, that’s your scratchy ass finger.

Javier Baez – Didn’t have playing time + all he did was strike out = Everyone wanted him.  Has playing time + curbed his Ks = Who’s Harry Crumb?  Damn, so close to getting that math right.

Cody Asche – At one point in the last few years, I wrote an Asche sleeper post and was crazy excited about him.  We don’t talk about that anymore.

Jose Iglesias –  Church!

Robbie Grossman – On a Buy column note, I’ve gone over these hot players for the last week, so if the blurbs are not giving you a whole lot like, “Church!” it’s because you haven’t paid attention this week.  I’m not one for repeating myself.  And that’s me quoting me!  Hot schmotato alert!  Anyway, heres’ what else I saw…

Ichiro Suzuki – The Trans-Pacific Hit King has also been hot.  By the by, Caitlyn Jenner flies the Trans-Pacific airline.

Steven Moya – Was called up to fill-in for J.D. while his elbow heals.  By the way, J.D. will only be out four to six weeks; he was diagnosed with Marionette’s Elbow.  So, what should we expect from Moya?  Big-time power.  30-homer power over the course of a season.  Moya?  Oh boya!  Unfortch, it comes with a likely .200 average.  He strikes out a lot.  In the minors, he had a 30+ strikeout percentage.  That’s absurd.  As in, in most leagues, I’m absurd’ing him on waivers and leaving him there.

Trayce Thompson – Looking at the big picture:  As many corner men, and infielders in general, that are available on waivers, there ain’t a ton of outfielders.  Looking at the small picture:  Is that a photo of my genitals?

Mallex Smith – SAGNOF!  Anything else?  I don’t think so.  He looks so bleh at the plate.  Takes a certain type to have a .300+ BABIP and still hit .240, but that’s Mallex.

Jameson Taillon – Feel like I’ve heard this guy’s name before.  Oh, I know, it’s from the last 35 times I’ve mentioned.  My dur.

Jon Gray – His K-rate, walk rate and xFIP are:  10.3, 2.6 and 3.02.  So, yes, I’m scared of Coors too, but Gray was a top prospect and looks to be breaking out.  *looks in mirror*  Damn, I just self-realized a pimple.

Jerad Eickhoff – He’s been aight, but this is more a Stream-o-Nator call.  Like the call it makes to Walmart to see if it carries a Speak n Spell, because it’s looking for friends.

Cody Reed – As I said this morning, “Was called up by the Reds.  You know that old joke by Woody Allen where he says, my brother is crazy, he thinks he’s a chicken.  To which the shrink says, why don’t you commit him?  He won’t commit him because he needs the eggs.  That’s how I feel about rookie pitchers.  They’re totally crazy, risky, and irrational, but we keep going through it because we need the eggs.  Is Cody Reed going to be better than, say, CC Sabathia this year?  Unlikely.  So, why pick him up over Sabathia?  Because I need the eggs.  Reed can hit high 90s with his fastball and his control appears improved this year.  If you’re looking for upside, take the flyer.”  And that’s me quoting me!

James Paxton – If you think there’s gonna be this many solid pitching options on waivers the rest of the year, there won’t be.  Well, maybe.  Guess it depends on your league.  Is there an innings cap?  H2H?  Roto?  Keep me updated.

Danny Duffy – I already gave you my Danny Duffy fantasy.  It was written in the stars, while we sat on the beach sipping what we believed were pina coladas, but was actually dog urine.

Brandon Kintzler – Perkins is done for the year and the Twins get save chances once every five weeks.  What’s not to love?

Shawn Kelley – Dusty says Kelley is Papelbon’s fill-in, but you never know with Dusty.  Dusty has 125 TVs tuned to different channels in his house because he keeps losing the remote control.

Carlos Estevez – Owning a Rockies closer doesn’t need to be scary.  Yes, Coors is a stadium high on helium, but Estevez can successfully pitch one inning every couple of days for saves.

Will Harris – Has the Astros’ closer job locked up only about two months after it should’ve happened.  I wonder how much better the Astros would’ve been if they made Harris the closer in April.  *wavy lines*  Hey, the Astros won three extra games.  This is the worst dream sequence ever.  *wavy lines*  Yeah, um, cool.

SELL

Jose Fernandez – This is not about his beautiful, gorgeous, adjective pitching.  It is a thing of beauty.  I make sweet love to any fantasy team that owns Jo-Fer when he’s pitching.  But when is he pitching?  That is the question I ask of thee.  StupiDon Mattingly has already said they’re skipping Fernandez, and will limit him the entire season.  StupiDon Mattingly also shaved his mustache, so his judgment is that of a drunk frat boy being asked to look the other way while a girl changes out of her bathing suit.  In some shallower leagues, you might be better off trading Jo-Fer for a hitter and streaming.  Obviously, I’m not saying trade Jo-Fer for a box of penises labeled, “Jerk off.”  Though, I would explore offers.

    OF is currently JBJ, Trumbo, Marte, Heyward and gardner.

                      There’s nothing more NY to me that EL-P. I actually don’t like run the jewels because I don’t like Big Mike. EL-P is a genius. Half these trap records bite his drums.

            @Grey:Grey,

            Curious your thought process on dropping Sanchez. I understand the news about an innings limit, but thats more long term. Thinking his arm is tiring after this recent outing? Pessimistic about his remaining starts?

            Always appreciate your work, best in the business IMO.

            • Grey

              I said Sanchez over Mengden… AL East, and they’re not going to move him to the bullpen in mid-Sept. Sounds like he could be moved there after the ASB

                (link)

                @Grey: I know, I was just getting your reasoning on dropping him in your personal league and not riding out his remaining starts. Thanks for taking the time man.

      “Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune hears that Willson Contreras’ stint in the majors this time around isn’t expected to be long.
      Contreras will be called up Friday, but Gonzales says the move is intended to be similar to what the Cubs did last year with Kyle Schwarber when they brought him up for a week before optioning him. The thinking is that they want Contreras to get acclimated to the majors so that when he comes back up — possibly for good — he’ll be more comfortable”

    im in a ten team H2H keeper points league. I have Abreu (kept in 13 rd), Turner (20) and Bregman (20). should i look to selling Turner considering I probably wont keep him over Abreu? or would you look to deal Abreu and keep either Turner or Bregman?

    Love your buy low articles. So I’m a JD owner (ugh) with a 7-3 record who also has Chris Davis who I can move to the OF and would be paired with my other OF’s of Polanco and Eaton.

    1) Who would you pick up out of these 1B/OF just worrying about the next 6 weeks? It’s a head-to-head points league so I don’t need a single category just points. I also have AJ Reed and Josh Bell stashed so maybe should be picking an OF?

    I think JD makes a full recovery but bone is bone and takes 4-6 weeks to heal. Trust me, I’m a doctor. :)

    Chris Carter
    Brandon Moss
    Matt Adams
    Mitch Moreland
    Adam Lind
    Tyler White

    Kevin Pillar
    Melky Cabrera
    Jason Werth
    Billy Hamilton

    Or 2) do I trade JD for Buxton straight up? JD is $13 for this year and next while Buxton is $21 for 2016-2018. Basically if we believe in Buxton over the next 3 years that could be the way to go. Do we believe in Buxton???

    I have a $2 Grandal in my 4X4 10 team keeper league (2 catchers). Keep thinking he’ll turn it around, but no end in sight to his struggles. Do I cut bait now on him for Chirinos, or will I greatly regret that?

    16 teamer with OPS, caught stealing and total bases added. keep 5 hitters, 2 have to be OF, the other 3 have to be from different positions. espn. h2h.
    C hundley
    1B rizzo
    2B schoop
    3B carpenter
    SS bogey (traded schwarber for him in preseason)

    got an offer of odor for my carpenter, espn’s player rater this year has these 2 very close, but as we know espn overvalues steals. plus for this year, i’d be pretty F’ed at 3B having only suarez (used to have mostsuckass, but injured). guessing hold.

            @Grey: seems like a good offseason trade. 16 teamers with CI/MI 4 OF, medium amount of BN slots you can’t easily find replacement players comes down to schoop + carpenter + t.anderson (or suarez) or odor + suarez + schoop (or t.anderson) as starters.

    Hey Grey!

    I feel like Buxton is a sell, maybe I’m watching the Twins games with shades on or something but I don’t see anything that looks like a spark out of this guy…

    So listen to this….

    The count is 0-2, Ubaldo makes a wild throw up in the zone and Donaldson check swings. It hits him on the finger and he’s favoring it for a second. John Gibbons takes a couple steps out of the dugout to argue that Ubaldo hit him.
    Donaldson waves him off because he’s like, “I’M FUCKING HOT RIGHT NOW, NO NEED TO TAKE A BASE WHEN I CAN DRIVE THESE DUDES IN”
    and he proceeds to triple and drive in two guys.

    No joke, that is what happened.

    So I had to laugh when I saw the lede to this article today.

    Here’s the thing about Trea Turner, we fantasy Baseballers sometimes forget that these teams are playing real life baseball, and in real life baseball defense counts. Some people say defense (including pitching) wins championships. So while I’m loathe to defend Dusty Baker, it makes sense. In real life.

    Counterpoint: the Cardinals are one of the most defense minded teams in the game, and they kept Diaz at short even tho he’s terrible.

    Counter-counterpoint: The Cardinals will win 82 games this year. And I’m a Cardinals fan!

    (I’ll be over here debating this with myself for the rest of the season.)

    • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
      (link)

      @Hugman: it’s been a while since STL was a defense minded team (diaz is certainly another example of this). is it even obvious though that espinosa’s D is better than turner’s?

        @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: Everything I’ve read suggests that Turner’s defense is lacking, but I’m no expert. I just play one on the Internet.

      @SteveNZ:

      Totally agree…he is mature beyond his years. Living here in LA my whole life as a lifelong Dodger fan (but too young to have seen Koufax or Fernando), it makes me giddy to think that we may have struck lightning twice with Kershaw and Urias within 10 yrs of each other.

      Having said that…razzballers should be shopping this kid like hell in redraft leagues to rip off some unbeknownsters. Might as well call him Bubble Boy with how carefully the Dodger brass will handle Urias

    10 team (3 keeper) ESPN H2H Points (weekly 12 start pitcher limit)

    Pitcher Scoring: WIN (+3), LOSS (-3), IP (+3), K (+1), BB (-1), SAVE (+3), HOLD (+1), ER (-2), HIT (-1), NH (+10) PF (+15)

    Yikes I’m down 37 points right now with 2 days left in my H2H points matchup! My opponent still has the following starts left:

    Scherzer @SD
    Zimmerman @KC
    G. Gonzalez @SD

    I will definitely be starting Matz vs. ATL (31.8) and Salazar vs. CHA (20.6) today and that will put me at 11/12 starts for the week. As we know I’ll be able to go over the limit Sunday so I’m trying to figure who to stream/start on Sunday in addition to Carrasco vs. CHA (27.3) These are the best options SON and I could find as FAs…

    Fiers vs. CIN (12.1)
    Bradley @PHI (7.6)
    Taillon @CHN (-2.9)

    So which of these above guys should I be starting on Sunday in hopes of catching up in points? Depending on how many you think, I’m also gonna need help figuring out who gets dropped from my team below now that I’m in a bit of a roster crunch with JD just eating up a bench spot because Hill is already in my one DL spot… You’ll notice Eickhoff is in my streaming spot and I only picked him up so that my opponent couldn’t start him against me so he’s the first guy to get dropped for the #1 streamer. Then if you think I should start 1 or 2 others guys out of the guys above then who gets dropped in order to start them!?

    (1) C: Posey
    (1) 1B: Abreu
    (1) 2B: Odor
    (1) SS: Correa
    (1) 3B: Seager
    (3) OF: Trout, Stanton, Polanco
    (1) UT: J. Upton
    Bench: (J.D. Martinez*)

    (4) SP: Salazar, Carrasco, Harvey, Matz
    (3) RP: Osuna, Dyson, Betances
    Bench: (McCullers, Duffy, Paxton, Eickhoff)

    (1) DL: Hill*

    It’s probably helpful to know the upcoming matchups for some of these guys in question after this weekend:

    Paxton @DET (-15.9)
    Duffy @NYN (12.4)
    Taillon vs. LAN (8.4)

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Lose Hill… DL JD… Start Fiers and Taillon, lose Duffy

      • ebudz says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Awesome thanks a lot! SO to just to clarify you’d only start Fiers and Taillon out of these three guys?

        Fiers vs. CIN (132.1)
        Bradley @PHI (9.4)
        Taillon @CHN (-2.9)

        IF that’s the case then I really only have to drop Hill, then DL JD in order pickup up Taillon. The I’d just need to drop Eickhoff (my streamer spot) for Fiers and I can hold onto Duffy.

    In need of SP…Thinking about trying to offer Piscotty

    Who would you go after with Piscotty? Possible 1 for 1 targets – John Gray, Fulmer, Keuchel (good buy low?)

    Am I in the right area? Any other suggestions?

        @Grey:
        Here’s my pitching staff:

        Carrasco
        Fernandez
        Taillon
        Duffy
        Taijuan
        Urias
        Smyly
        Britton and Kelley

        DL: Ryu, Papelbon

        I’m toward the bottom of 14 team ROS in QS, Ks, and ERA. Should I shoot higher with Piscotty, or make a bigger package deal with Jay Bruce to get an ace?

            @Grey:

            Thinking through a few deals. Offensively I need OBP and SB…

            1. I give Bruce, Profar, Smyly and get DeGrom, Rajai
            2. I give Bruce, Profar, Duffy and get Madbum, Tim Anderson

            If #2 is rejected, I might throw in Smyly instead of Profar.

            Thanks for the help! Trades haunt me for weeks until they are made…

    My inability to pick a 2B is laughable – I thought Neil Walker would have a decent showing against the Braves, but he’s been useless with a single hit. Looks like I’m going with Schoop… Do you think he hits 2nd in the lineup with Machado serving his suspension?

    I guarantee when I pick up Schoop, he’ll go 0-20 with 10 Ks

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: umm, walker had a homer and a double just a day or so ago (his first day back from back issue). i’m not saying him over schoop a doop, but if yr hoping for a great santinian nearly a HR a day you ain’t getting that from either.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: i guess context is needed for my rant – i picked him up the day after the homer and played the matchup in my H2H when I saw Kipnis going up against both Rodon and Quintana over the weekend so I made the swap. Got the 1/4 Friday night, but the 0-4 was just adding to my rough weekend performance from my team. I didn’t get to the fact Toddfather and Mazara can’t buy a hit this week

    2. Still be patient with Franco? I can get Valencia for him but Franco had such a nice 2nd half hoping history repeats itself.

    lost it with chen and stroman!! fucking lost it!!!!

    what you think about any or all of these to replace one or both of these bozos:

    Taillon, Reed, Smyly, Bauer, Colon (ya really!), Moore

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Smyly, Taillon

      • peacecoast says:

        @Grey: drop both then for smyly and taillon?

        • Grey

          Yeah, may as well

    Hi Grey,

    Here’s my current 10 Team NL-Only H2H w/OBP line up with prices for next year. $280 Cap (keep 5)

    Ca Castillo (2)
    1B Goldschmidt (47)
    2B LeMehieu (8)
    3B Franco (15)
    SS Villar (12)
    IN Adams (3)
    OF Piscotty (21)
    OF Ozuna (23)
    OF Santana (16)
    OF Duvall
    U Gennett
    B Pollock (27)
    B Asche

    SP Arrieta (33)
    SP Cole (22)
    SP Hendricks (14)
    SP Velasquez (12)
    SP Pomeranz
    SP Eickhoff (2)
    RP Rondon (19)
    RP Vizcaino (9)
    RP Strickland (4)
    B Ray (4)

    A) I’m wondering if you think Owings will get enough PT if/when he’s activated from the DL next weekend. I’ll need to secure him soon for Asche though.

    B) Josh Bell is on FA and can be kept for $1. Can you see him being a better keeper value than Cole, Franco, or Piscotty? I know that Bell might not be up till August, but I’d have to probably pick him up in the next couple of weeks if he stays hot in AAA. Broxton ($3) is on waivers right now and is also an option.

    C) Alex Reyes is also a FA, but can’t be kept. Do you think he’d be a good option to stash before All-Star break given my current pitching staff? There’s really nobody worth picking up.

    Thanks!

      A. sure B. Nope C. Sure

      • Pugs & Slugs says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks! Especially for the Bell/Broxton advice. I’m sure they’ll end up getting picked up, but I do like my other options.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          No problem

  167. Jon Doe says:
    (link)

    Grey, which side?
    A. Desmond and Stanton for Price.
    B. Bogaerts, Stanton, Ross for Odor and Price.
    Thanks in advance

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      A. Desmond B. Xander

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      2nd one is fairish

      • Jon Doe says:
        (link)

        @Grey:
        How about replace Xander with Desmond in B?

          Better

    @Grey: Mazara finally comes through – might be too little too late depending on what happens during the Cubs/Pirates game for my H2H matchup though… I have both pitchers, Polanco, and Rizzo going for me tonight – I couldn’t start Marte and risk him not playing.

    Someone in my league dropped Brian McCann – so is he a better play than Russell Martin? Thinking of picking him up once he’s off waivers

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I’d go McCann…Good luck!

  169. Brett says:

    Devon Travis what do you expect rest of the year?

    Pick a holds guy cedeno in Tampa or bush in texas

    10 team (3 keeper) ESPN H2H Points (weekly 12 start pitcher limit)

    Pitcher Scoring: WIN (+3), LOSS (-3), IP (+3), K (+1), BB (-1), SAVE (+3), HOLD (+1), ER (-2), HIT (-1), NH (+10) PF (+15)

    Okay Grey let’s hope Taillon + Polanco outscore Zobrist tonight by 14 points! If so, I’ll secure 1st place but I have an even tougher opponent next week so need to start planning starts! Which of these starts each day are the best ones to use? I can only start 4 SPs each day and there is a 12 start limit but can go over if we only use 11 starts going into Sunday 6/26… I know it’s early but trying prioritize who to add next…

    McHugh vs. LAA (5.8)

    1. Do You like Tomlin (v Smyly) and/or Bauer (v Archer) at home versus Rays this week?

    2. Need a MI this week….Johnny G (@ Astros, A’s), Mercer (SF, Dodgers), Inglesias (Seattle, Cleve), K Marte (@Cleve, STL). I do not need steals but need average help. Please pick one.

    3. Lastly, Suarez and Semien will be claimable by Wednesday. Are they clearly better than these guys list d in the above as I have turned this into a streamer position but perhaps Suarez can get it going again enough to stick or ????
    Tx for the help.

      1. Both 2. Iglesias 3. Not clearly better, but they could get it going

      • Johnc says:

        @Grey:

        Very helpful. Thanks……Miller just hit the wire. Lots of movement tonight! Sorry for the string bet.
        Going against Cleveland pitching on the road, should I assume you would stick with Inglesias over Miller?

    Devon Travis or Russell?

    • Grey

      Travis

  173. William Hung says:
    (link)

    @Grey: There were 2 things I really surprised me about Schoop this season –

    1. He’s gotten better every month this season
    2. I know I mentioned this earlier, but him and Odor are really close in HRs, BA, RBIs and OBP – would you have expected that?
    3. He’s currently 5th/6th in RBIs among 2B

    I picked him up today and he did not go 0-4, potentially swinging a 10-3 deficit into a victory if I can get 1 more run from Rizzor or Polanco, and 3 more Ks from Taillon and Hendricks

    As the driver of the Schoop bandwagon, do you have any room left? I’ve been on and off all season, but I think based on his trending season so far, I have to stay strapped in

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Do I have room? I could be driving a Mini with room for 3 more

  174. William Hung says:
    (link)

    Jake Lamb or Mazara? I have Frazier and only Mazara as my bench bat… do you think Lamb is a top 10 3B?

    • Grey

      Lamb

    anybody else get lucky when reading that lying rotoworld blurb that claimed contreras was starting and left him in due to having another catcher (hundley) off today? nice there.

      @Mordacious Levator: not lying, but certainly incorrect, as contreras didn’t start.
