Yuli Gurriel will forever be known for the less-than-woke gesture he made in the playoffs, unless he were to do something even worse — “Hold on, it appears Yuli has taken the field with…uh…Is that pine tar on his entire face?  Oh, man, that was misguided.”  “Wait, is Yuli patting a rosin bag on his face and performing Kabuki theater on the mound?  Oh, c’mon, Yuli.”  “What on earth is Yuli thinking, he’s dressed like Nanook of the North and building an igloo out of Igloo coolers.  This guy desperately needs to see Human Resources for some sensitivity training.”  Funny in retrospect he made the Asian slight when his nickname is a mashup of two Asian names, Yu + Li.  Any hoo!  Was shocked to see him owned in less than 50% of leagues.  Prior to his Spring Training injury, I had him ranked high, due to how much I wanted him.  Sure, there’s some concern his injury could linger, but he’s well worth the flyer for his potential 20-homer power, .280-ish average and solid counting stats.  Just hope he gets the sensitivity training he needs.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Tucker Barnhart – Sadly, the Reds manager, Bryan Price was fired yesterday, so his nickname for Tucker may never go mainstream.  It was good too, just changing the T to an F.  Actually, that was his nickname for everyone.

C.J. Cron – Hitting .435 in the last week, and there is nothing I’d like to see more than Cron breakout after leaving The Sciosciapath.  *genie appears from lamp*  “Your wish is granted on Cron.  Too bad, I was gonna make you a millionaire.” What!?  No!!!

Jedd Gyorko – Yo, the Cards have five guys for every position.  If I were managing that team, and it were a fantasy team, I’d make some trades.  Never the hoo!  Gyorko should see playing time and has power.

Colin Moran – Not entirely sure why C**nt Hurdle feels the need to platoon Moran.  Maybe because he’s a moron?  P to the erhaps.  Moran has been worth platooning in deeper fantasy leagues, though.

Yonder Alonso – Might be finally coming out of his early-season funk, which is Bootsy Collins’ favorite kind of slump.  Anything can stop him now…One player out of a groove…Gettin’ down just for the early-season funk of it…

Cesar Hernandez – As Cesar said about himself, “E pluribus get me if you need Runsus Maximus.”

Ketel Marte – Being real with you when I say I think I like the idea of Ketel Marte better than owning Ketel Marte.  How is that actionable?  Well, not sure it is, but Marte owned in less than 15% of leagues is baffling to me.

Christian Villanueva – Almost made Newtown the lede today, but Rudy pointed out he was hit on the hand and might have lingering injury concerns.  So, instead, I made a guy who broke his hand the lede!  Logic: It’s Not Just A Rapper On Jimmy Fallon.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa – The Pita King has been pretty hot.  Hey, Isiah, give ’em the tahini!

Max MuncyJustin Turner’s timetable + Kike – Muncy’s light power/no speed = How much I like K-Pax.  Hmm, might’ve forgot to carry the one there.  Was supposed to be ‘How much I like Max.’

Aledmys Diaz – Is it me or does Aledmys look like a composite sketch drawing?  Where are your features, man?  You’re just an oval!  And not a good composite drawing!  I could draw an oval with two eyes!  Never the hoo!  Diaz has hit for some power so far, and should play.

Gleyber Torres – Word on the streets of the Bronx is Gleyber could be promoted soon.  I’m prolly looking at making Gleyber next week’s lead Buy, so I won’t be-Gleyber this.

Teoscar Hernandez – Just gave you my Teoscar Hernandez fantasy.  It was written while putting fish scale on a fishing boat.  I also go over Teoscar in the above video.

Lewis Brinson – “I’m totally out on Brinson.  Just done with him.  Sorry, he’s just not ready for the majors.”  Three days later, “I just grabbed Brinson in every league!”  At some point, Brinson is going to break out and be a top 40 outfielder.  No idea if it’s now, but you have to grab him in case it is.

Matt Kemp – Has been hitting so well–Wait, Dave Roberts is saying I need to replace Matt Kemp in my Buy with Kike Hernandez.  Damn.

Albert Almora Jr. – This one is all Hitter-Tron.  Like licking hot fudge off an electric socket is all Hitter-Tron.

Mallex Smith – Likely won’t hit .370+ for the whole season, and his caught stealing percentage leaves some to be desired, but Michael Lewis is writing a book about the dearth of steals in the majors called, “Runnyball,” and if you need SAGNOF, you could do worse.

Tyler O’Neill – Here’s what I said the other day, “With Tommy Pham going through tests on his groin (hey now!), the Cards called up their slugging prospect, O’Neill.  The Cards have so many bats, they could trade three outfielders and still have three solid outfielders (Bader, Jo-Ma and O’Neill — don’t make me show my math!).  Prospector Ralph loves Tyler O’Neill in his top 100 prospects for 2018 fantasy baseball.  He (O’Neill, not Ralph) looks like a low-ish average, 35-homer guy who doesn’t have playing time shored up.  I grabbed him in two leagues just in case he plays, but could see dropping him by this weekend.”  And that’s me quoting me!

Keynan Middleton – I don’t think the Angels’ pen is out of the proverbial woods (not Alex/Brandon), but Middleton is the guy as of now.

Bud Norris – Would be funny if, after the Holland signing, the Cards just went with Norris and Holland poorly worked the 8th.  The peripherals back up Norris’ case for it, too.  His K/9 is absurd.  Absurd is an absurd word too, isn’t it?  Any word that has a B as its second letter is just weird.  Yo, B’s you make shizz weird.  Obsequious, oblique, OB/GYN…Okay, last one might be just weird for guys.

Jose Alvarado – The bad news, the Rays may stay committed to Colome to drive up his trade value.  The good news, Alvarado is worth owning even if he’s not getting saves.

Chris Devenski – I get the distinct impression that A.J. Hinch will never regain faith in Giles.  He may need a trade, or accept his new role of closer in a committee.

Matt Albers – Fatt Blubbers may not be the closer.  Though, no one may be the closer in Milwaukee.  Wrap your noodle around that one!  Obviously, Hader and Barnes should be owned too.

Nick Pivetta – Two weeks in a row, Pivetta’s made the Buy without being a Stream-o-Nator call, though SON likes him this weekend, too.  Show Pivetta what he’s won!  A Bed, Bath and Beyond 20% off coupon!  Rad!  Also, Pivetta was this week’s Hold in the video above, just in case any of youse were thinking about selling him.

Brent Suter – This is a Stream-o-Nator call like the call it makes to a Best Western to ask, “Do you have any rooms with people in them that want company?”  Why is the Stream-o-Nator so lonely?

SELL

Jed Lowrie – Yes, sell the low-energy JED!, but let me say this, I’d own him in any league if he wasn’t already owned.  So, I’m saying more that the Fantasy Baseball Buy/Sell Tool thinks he’s the biggest sell as of right now, and I don’t disagree if you can find anyone who thinks JED! is for real.

Johnny Cueto – He’s recaptured a lil’ something and/or something.  Don’t have any quibble with that.  He does not look like a 4.50+ ERA guy as he was last year.  Plus, a solid pitchers’ park at home, and dat command tho.  Has it working.  However, I don’t trust him to stay on the field, and he’s still a 7.50-ish K/9 guy with a likely 3.70 ERA vs. the current 0.45 ERA.  I’d go to the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer to see what you can get for him.  I wouldn’t sell him low for something like a birthday phone call from Kato Kaelin.

      I got offered Ian Happ for my Miggy. Is these even slightly appealing? I feel like it’s brutally lackluster but I havent been able to get anything for Miggy thus far and honestly can’t decide what calibre of player i should be after for him.

    You dont think we would be power deficient? Logan Morrison was just cut but he was putrid so far, He could replace bour easily though.

    • LenFuego says:

      @Michael: Do not get caught up worrying about certain categories or positions when you get offered value in a trade early in the season. That trade is good value for you. Take it, and if you are worried about power, start looking for another trade to acquire some power. Say, offer, Cueto for Cespedes, or

    Peacock – does me make it back in the rotation? He dropped to waivers in my 12T roto and wondering if I should use my waiver priority on him.

    Have Green and Hader as elite RP for ratios already…

      I’d grab him

    Great work as always!

    Quick Q…someone dropped Sonny Gray in my 12 team H2H points league (12 keepers, keep forever) where starting pitching is a priority. With a $100 FAAB budget, how much do you bid for him? I’d be dropping Ian Happ, J Hader or Mikolas.

    Thoughts?

      $4 — Mikolas

      @El Famous Burrito: he has a job part time til Turner gets back. However his cannon could give him more AB’s than people think. I think the Doyers know Forsyth is terrible at the corner

    1. Drop 1 pitcher (Pivetta; Lucchesi).

    2. Drop 1 2B. Merrifield or Taylor. Each also can support OF (see Question 3).

    3. Drop 1 (or 2 OF) when Deshields comes off DL. Currently OF = Mancini; Rosario; and Cain.

    Gausman (SON 7.4 Det/ Cle) sort of want to hang on for now even if I don’t start him next week
    Wheeler (11.1 @SD)
    Wacha (1.7 NYM) definitely not starting him now
    T Williams (-10.7 StL) bad matchup? but a hold for now?
    Skaggs (-1.3 @Hou/NYY)

    Hey Grey…

    Someone dropped Zimmerman and I picked him up. Think it’s possible he wakes up a little not necessarily like last year but enough to be a good replacement for Carlos Santana?

    Basically I am saying I am so sick of owning Carlos year after year and he is killing me and I want to drop him.

          @Alex: If you have a use for that roster space that is going to help your team (like picking up Zimmerman to start him), then sure, you can release Gohara. He is just a speculative hold.

    Mac Williamson, Grey! You heard it here, first. Dude’s been absolutely mashing in AAA and will be promoted today. He has adjusted his launch angle (yeah, i know, but still) and what do the Giants have to lose other than Pence’s horrid self.

    Are you still holding on Michael Taylor? I have him on the bench and I’m struggling with SB, so he may help one day.

    But, I’m thinking about dropping him for Gleyber? What do you suggest?

    Trade question which side (keeper H2H):

    1) my Arenado, Robbie Ray or his Betts, Duffy

    And Betts owner is also offering Giancarlo instead of Betts as alternative. My pitching is super deep so losing Ray isn’t the biggest concern and have Rendon to play 3B if I trade Arenado

    Hey grey, my follow up above disappeared for some reason.

    Hey Grey. If the Baseball Furies formed a hardcore band, they’d totally be called Pine Tar Blackface.

    Not sure if you saw this or not, but here’s your boy Tyler O’Neil power lifting: https://twitter.com/greatestondirt/status/986707484512370688
    If anyone in STL’s OF ever gets injured (by, for example, accidentally bumping into this guy), I’d love to see the kind of damage he could do.

    With Happ sitting today (against a RIGHTY) our Coors dream of Ian’s turnaround is slowly disappearing. I know it’s early, but I don’t like where this is headed. What’s our cut-bait date? Another month of this?

    Any chance Lourdes Gurriel turns out to be as useful as his brother Yuli? (Was gonna make a Lourdes/Iris Chacon joke, but aborted.) Might replace Travis in lineup. Thanks!

    Have a good one!

    i went all in on the offense first, second, and third in the draft, then loaded my entire bench with a bunch of starters. it’s worked out really well. but now i need to make a drop in a few leagues.

    12 team weekly lineups, i have trienan and greene closing. i want to pick up norris and/or devenski (we are a bunch of mid 30s professionals now, so we have weekly waivers that run saturday and sunday nights).

    do i drop wheeler, matz, or reynaldo lopez. or do i get really fed up and drop quintana (the first SP i drafted and by far the worst performing thus far. well gray hasn’t been much better but his peripherals and FIP/xFIP indicate it’s bad luck more than bad pitching.).

    Alex Reyes – S – Cardinals
    Cardinals’ general manager John Mozeliak said Friday that Alex Reyes will begin a minor league rehab assignment in mid-May.

    Mozeliak also noted that when Reyes does eventually return to the Cardinals, “all arrows point to it being as a starter”. The Cardinals have enough confusion in their bullpen at the moment, and Reyes’ future remains as a fixture atop the Cardinals’ rotation, so this seems to make the most sense for all parties.

    Roto keeper 5×5 obp move limit league… last in all offensive categories so far. Please tell me it’s going to be ok.. :( . But seriously, what can I do this early? Could drop Owings for a streamer but it may not be worth the move. Not a lot out there on the wire. Wait and hope?

      No idea how many teams in league, but Owings and Taylor aren’t great prolly both in your OF

        @Grey: 12 team. Sounds like both Eaton and deshields could be back in next few days. Will likely drop Owings and keep Taylor as bench bat for now.

        Someone just dropped Domingo Santana. Not sure I’d get him based on waiver priority if I put in a claim. Try it?

        Other guys out there are Franchy, O Neil, Brinson, calhoun, Dietrich, altherr, Dahl, grichuck

    A frustrated owner dropped Gray, you advise picking him up? Seems his LOB% has dropped almost 20 points and his HR/9 has spiked almost half a percent. If these two thinks revert to their career numbers he’s back to his old self.

    SON’s meh on his next two starts. You still on the Gray train, Grey?

  119. Dancin Homer says:

    Velasquez worth holding onto in a 12-team deep bench league or better to use that spot to stream SP’s (other end-of-my-rotation SP’s are: ERod & Wacha)?

    for instance, today best “probable” SP’s available are (according to SON):
    Suter
    Fiers

    Tomorrow’s:
    Yarbrough

        @Grey: BTW, My relief pitchers imploding would be so much easier to take if they weren’t Kazam’d by managers using them in non-relief situations. No way to protect ourselves from that either. Managers like tinkering with that back-end of the bullpen. Seems to be a trend. The future looks like it might be more Bradleys and less Kenleys.

    I’m giving Machado, Corbin, Lowrie
    I’m getting J.Ram, Gordon, and 2 scrubs.
    I intend to counter replacing 2 scrubs with Ray.
    Trade analyzer says this is a landslide even without Ray, but what do you think about it?

    Complete hitters in addition to Machado are: Grandal, Bellinger, Schoop, Segura, Trout, Marte, Buxton, E. Rosario, Conforto, T. Anderson, and Moistasskiss

    My only concern is power loss if JRam can’t scrape 20+ together this season.

    • CrazyJ says:

      Pitching (if I can’t get Ray on a counteroffer) is:
      C. Martinez, L. Castillo, T. Bauer, Pomeranz, Lucchesi, Junis
      Rivero, Herrera, Strickland, Giles, Hader

    Yonny Chirinos
    Tropeano

    Other option would be to drop my $0 Mateo prospect stash, but I’d rather not since he could be very interesting later in the year.

    sup G,

    Dropped Choo for Senzel last Monday but then they changed their minds on his call up. He is probably weeks away. So he is wasting a lineup slot for me (we use bench spots to carry lots of SP since no innings limit).
    SO: should I hold on to him? I mean I can pick up Choo again, or Gurriel, or Teoscar, or villaneuva, or Gleyber, or Brinson, or Franchy.
    I need production! Doing poorly in hitting. Would you drop senzel for any of these (please rank)? Or drop an SP to hold on to senzel (quintana, anderson, manaea, jmontgomery, mikolas, erod, fulmer)?
    Also flaherty coming uop: who from above would you drop for him?

    • Grey

      Gleyber, Teoscar… Forget Senzel for now

      • Jubaka says:

        @Grey: VIL! If you need a 3rd basemen. Teoscer is so hot too though.. ones is good with lefties, one is good with rights.. both are on not so good of teams.

    Hey Grey,

    Couple questions.

    1. What is Renodn’s problem. Guy is being such a baby. It’s only a toe, you have nine others! And why didn’t they just put him on the DL immediately?! If this guy Kotchmans me all year with a bum toe, I’m gonna be so pissed.

    2. 12 team, 6×6 w/OBP and IP. Is Jon Gray droppable now? I wanted to believe in him but the poor fella has been terrible. Trying to scoop up Dahl, could drop Gray, Holland (also not great), or Michael Taylor or Teoscar. Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Ha, I hear ya 2. Teoscar or Dahl, prolly lean Dahl for now though Teoscar is likely better

    Offered Cespedes and Duvall for my Schoop, who do you take ROS assuming Schoop comes back soon? Keeper league, if that matters, my team is in the gray zone of being competitive this year so a major difference in future value is relevant. I would use Semien to fill in as a MI, but my OF is in rough shape. Thanks!

      Take it

      • Max says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks, I had thought given their positions and general projections Schoop would be more valuable (and you had Schoop ranked about 30 spots higher in the preseason), good to get your view to the contrary. Out of curiosity, if I decide I am looking to next year instead, do you still prefer Cespedes to Schoop? Thanks again.

      @VinWins: and wasn’t used yesterday in the 9th with a save opp even though hicks was being used for a 2nd inning and didn’t do well in that 2nd inning (not that it mattered, norris should’ve been out there anyway, wasn’t tired at the time). holland was warming up yesterday when hicks had to get lucky with a DP.

    So I’m crazy light on steals and DeShizz was just dropped.

    I don’t have any pitchers to drop – drop Domingo Santana for him?

    Right now I’m starting Reddick, Mancini, and Thames all over Santana – I know it’s still early, but as it stands, there’s no path for Santana to even make my starting lineup – or the Brewers lineup for that matter.

    Whatcha think – too early to move on from Domingo or make the switch due to needs?

    Hope ya good weekend G! Waiting on baby ERad any day now.

    colome with the kimbrel, might be fine now. this is while he continues to be overworked just like DAL did with d.murray when they knew he wasn’t going to be resigned for trade value.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah

      • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
        (link)

        @Grey: you probably don’t get that exact reference, but football fans most certainly would. d.murray was a RB (WAS good during this story) who DAL knew from cap reasons (i.e. he was due a raise) they wouldn’t resign, so they gave him like 370 or so handles (times ball is carried per season by offensive player) one year about 4-5 years ago. it was the highest number in like 15 or so years by anybody (pretty sure) and since then d.murray hasn’t been nearly as good of a RB, but fantasy owners have still overpaid for him for at least the first 2 of those years after.

          @William Hung: how long has that rule been in place, as i’m pretty sure that in past seasons teams have waited longer than 3 days then backdated longer than only 3 days.
