Zach Britton was traded to the Yankees.  The Yankees acquired Britton to throw out all Boston players’ tea.  Now the Yankees just need to acquire Ben Revere to ride into Boston and tell everyone in Fenway what’s up.  “Excuse me, Jimmy McMalley, should we Google when the Yankees are coming to town next?”  “I don’t think that’s necessary, Shane O’Irishharvard, the Yankees have a lovely black gentleman riding into town named Revere with a Britton”  “Splendid, Jimmy, splendid.”  And that’s how Massholes discuss current events.  Britton now moves about three innings from the ninth.  Is he gonna pitch the 6th?  Not sure, to be honest, but he’s not closing, so in most leagues you can drop him.  As for Baltimore’s new closer?  Like neon scrunchies, what’s old is new again, and Brad Brach should regain the closer job.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Gary Sanchez – Hit the DL after re-aggravating his groin injury, i.e., his groin is barking.  If he were just faking a reoccurrence of his injury after his pee-poor passed ball the other night, then Gary Sanchez is a smellfungus with his groin.  Smellfungus is my new favorite arcane word.  Move over, cattywampus!

Masahiro Tanaka – 9 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.09.  Was super close to making Tanaka the lede today, but I think there’s gonna be time for him to get another lede this 2nd half, because: 91 Ks, 76 1/3 IP in the 2nd half last year and a 3.77 ERA with a .230 BAA.  He’s in the early lead for Friday’s Buy lede.

Jeff McNeil – 1-for-1, as he was called up by the Mets.  You know who’s even more excited about seeing McNeil?  Asdrubal, because this almost certainly means he’s being traded.  Then again, the Mets might just bench McNeil.  That might be the more Mets thing to do.  Why do we care?  Jeff McNeil has looked more like Jeff Kent in the minors this year.  He has 19 HRs and a .342 average in Double and Triple-A.  Tri-A is PCL-aided, but he’s been hitting everything all year.  He’s not a tater tot, however, he’s 26 years old, so might be a Quad-A player who just finally figured out the minor leagues, but is too old to do the same in the majors.  I’d grab him in deeper mixed leagues and NL-Only for now.

Yoenis Cespedes – Hit the DL and might have surgery on the calcification in both of his heels which could sideline him for 8-10 months.  We wait for clarification on the calcification.

Amed Rosario – 1-for-3, 2 runs, hitting .249.  I’ll only harp on this for about a week, but it’s baffling to me how it took the Mets until after the break to realize Rosario should be hitting leadoff.  They weren’t exactly teeming with options all year either.

Michael Conforto – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 13th homer, hitting .229.  He has a chance to hit .250 with 20 homers this year.  Not where he wanted to be, I’m sure, but a solid 2nd half will once again draw people into the bounce back, post-post-post-post-post-POST-post hype sleeper next year.

Zack Wheeler – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.33.  It was vs. the Padres before you try to bend yourself all the way over at the waist, and he’s negatory on the Stream-o-Nator for his next start.

Austin Gomber – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.48.  Cards threw another rookie, and this time a six-inning no-hitter, but then shizz went a little sideways when he thought he could pitch to Eugenio “The Eugenius” Suarez.  Last Cards starter to throw a no-hitter 24 hours prior was sent right back down, so not sure what to expect of Gomber, likely back to bullpen.  Was a bit disappointed that Gomber didn’t face Sal Romano so I could make Sal Goomba jokes, but I guess I could’ve went with Gomber/Homer jokes.  Bummer/bumber.

Carlos Martinez – Could return on Monday.  No idea who that game will be against, but I can guarantee you afterwards I will say some variation of, “Well, I guess he’s not healthy yet.”

Dexter Fowler – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and a slam (8) and legs (4), hitting .179.  Cool, super, whatever, but the Cards were in a close game, went into extra innings, and they pulled Jose Martinez (1-for-3, 1 RBI) in the 7th.  The ol’ ‘pull one of your best hitters in a close game’ strategy.  Not tried since Coach Tom Niedenfuer pulled Darla Casey in the Women’s Softball World Series in 1990.  Darla should’ve been able to face Muffy Strumpet!

Bud Norris – 1 IP, 0 ER, and the save.  I will give it to “You Don’t Know Jack” Shildt, he’s committed to making Norris the closer.  Time will tell what kind of ‘committed’ I’m referring to there.

Ranger Suarez – Will make his Phils debut on Thursday, so, ya know, change your name to Phil Suarez or get traded.  Ah, member about eight days ago when we (I) thought we (I) should own Enyel De Los Santos?  Well, I like Santos better than Suarez and Enyel was beat up.

Nick Williams – 2-for-6 and his 12th homer.  Sonavadrop!  Damn, I just released him into the sea of inadequatity (totally a word!) as I dropped him for Bieber.  That worked out well!

Aaron Nola – 5 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.42.  Against the Dodgers, this could’ve been much worse, so I’d be happy with it.  *you opening a half-assed wrapped package*  What a lovely 5 IP, 3 ER start.  Lowercase thanks.

Yasiel Puig – Will return on Saturday to either be a top 20 outfielder or irrelevant.  There is literally no in-between for Cuban players.  All Cuban players formed an unpredictable, secret society to tease and torment fantasy owners.  It’s called El Cubanati.

Yasmani Grandal – 3-for-7 and his 15th and 16th homer, and three homers in two games.  I can hear Joe Buck in October already, “When the Dodgers and Phils met in July, their games were all close affairs–Wait, is that a picture of Brett Gardner’s jawline?  My, my, he is handsome.”

Ryan Borucki – 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 2.79.  Fun fact!  Duff Goldman would think Borucki was a brownie-cookie hybrid and eat him.  Slightly less fun fact, Borucki is fine for some streams, like how I streamed him yesterday, but he had a 6.8 K/9 in Triple-A, so he could get chewed up in bad matchups, and not just by Duff.

Eduardo Escobar – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 15th homer, hitting .278. Was a little touch-and-go like your drunk uncle when Jorge Polanco first came back, but Eduardo’s still playing and hitting near-.400 in the last week.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. – 2-for-4, hitting .295 and in two hole, as he continues to hot schmotato.  Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, that’s your cue.  Don’t everyone line up at once.  Pun points!

Kris Bryant – Out with a sore shoulder.  Uh-oh.  He was supposedly recovered from this.  Like Scorpio, not a great sign.

Yu Darvish – Threw a 16-pitch session.  Sweet!  He’s ready to face two hitters as long as they don’t foul off too many.

Jason Heyward – 1-for-4 and his 7th homer.  I told you to buy him a few weeks ago and was met with a murmur or two but mostly apathy.  Guess who’s now hitting third for the Cubs?  Okay, that’s sad.

Clay Buchholz – 6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.38.  No, he’s not pitching that well, but he’s a lot closer to a 3.60 ERA pitcher than he’s been in many years.

Jordan Zimmermann – 5 IP, 4 ER, 8 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.97.  That was fun vs. the Royals, now get your diseased pitching off my teams.  Buh-bye.

Mike Moustakas – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 20th homer.  Moistasskiss!

Salvador Perez – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 15th homer.  He also stole a base.  Totally kidding!  Have you ever seen him run?  Ketchup comes out of the Heinz bottle faster without hitting the 57.

Gerrit Cole – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 2.54.  Someone asked if they should start Cole in Coors.  In general, you have to start top twenty pitchers everywhere.  Cole’s been much better than that.

Wade Davis – 1 1/3 IP, 5 ER. Kazaam!

Carlos Rodon – 7 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.38.  Rondonkulous!  Or you can pitch to the Angels if you walk Trout, and face the other eight Angels.  Maybe that’s a waste of Angels, I don’t know.  On the reals, Rodon’s numbers look terrible, so I’d lean on the Stream-o-Nator when to start him.

Kyle Tucker – 1-for-1, 2 RBIs, which came as a pinch hitter, because the Astros called up Tucker to play Tony Kemp!  I feel like screaming like Coach from Last Chance U.

James Paxton – Was scheduled to return last night, but did not (obvi).  Too bad no one told you to sell him–Wait!  Someone did!  Me.  That’s right.

Andrew Suarez – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 10 baserunners, 1 K, ERA at 3.99.  People have adopted this Rice-ja-broni quickly.  I mean, there’s at least a dozen comments about starting him.  Hear ya loud and/or clear.  He is a decent streamer, but a Rice-ja-broni is an in San Francisco treat.

Hunter Pence – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer.  The Gangly Manbird now has one more homer than Fuller House co-star, John Stamos.

Junior Guerra – 6 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.13, as he was activated from the DL.  I know he surrendered some unearned runs, but a few weeks ago it sounded like he was headed for Tommy John surgery.  That’s what war’s good for!

Bryce Harper – 0-for-1 with a strikeout and tummy ache.  Legend.

Adam Eaton – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer, hitting .324.  If he gets to seven homers on the year, I will write a roundup naked with my Periscope.  (I don’t think I know what Periscope is.)

J.D. Martinez – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 30th and 31st homer.  Just Dong just dongs so much he just dongs and dongs.

Mookie Betts – 2-for-5 and his 24th homer, hitting .351.  All Betts are on!

Jonathan Schoop – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 14th homer, and 4th homer in the last five games, and 18th homer in the last 12 at-bats.  Member what I said about Tanaka being in the lead for the lede Buy on Friday?  Well, he’s got some competition.

Tim Beckham – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 4th homer.  Would’ve been nice to see what Beckham could’ve done this year if he didn’t miss fifty games.  Sadly (depends on your POV), I might be in on him again next year.

Shane Bieber – 1 2/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA up to 4.80.  I’m just going to leave this Coca-Cola on this beautiful veranda in this ISIS-run bar in Afghanistan and head to the bathroom.  Could someone watch my drink?  *five hours later*  Why does it feel like someone is pulling a wet hose out of my butt?  AHHHHH!!!  Roofie!!!

Starling Marte – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 16th homer, hitting .292.  I wonder if him, Gregory Polanco (1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 18th homer) and Corey Dickerson (2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) are suddenly hitting everything out of the park because they think they might be able to get off the Pirates.  Aw, how cute.

Joe Musgrove – 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 3.90.  I like Musgrove, and want to say this great start in Cleveland was his doing, but, man and five girl readers, the Indians offense went cold recently.  For what it’s Werth, the Stream-o-Nator loves Musgrove’s next start.

Julio Teheran – 4 1/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA up to 4.42.  If Teheran’s walk-up music isn’t Bombs Over Baghdad, major missed opportunity.

Johan Camargo – 2-for-4 and his 10th homer, hitting .261.  Camargo to a T:  Great NL-Only play, unable to be owned in a mixed league.  Or, if reading in Jersey, Camaro to a Trans Am, “Yo, whatcha you doin’ later, ladies?”

J.T. Realmuto – 1-for-3, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 13th homer.  Went over Jerry Tomato in the video that’s at the top of this post.  Give it a watch 4,000 times and make me some some cold hard change!

Starlin Castro – 1-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 8th homer, hitting .287.  287 is also the LAPD code for a white boy singing rap music and about to ask his black friend if he can sing the n-word along with the rapper.

Brian Anderson – 3-for-3, 3 runs, hitting .285.  I’m guilty of not even looking at Mehlins hitters too, but there’s actually been a few who have been surprisingly valuable for fantasy.

Jed Lowrie – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBis and his 17th homer.  The A’s, uh, A team took yesterday off for the first seven innings and Lowrie and Mark Canha (1-for-3, 3 runs, and hit his 13th homer) picked up the A’s B’s, see?  Then the A’s A’s stepped up and Stephen Piscotty (2-for-6 and his 14th homer) and Khris Davis (1-for-6, 3 RBIs and his 25th homer) went deep again.

Kendall Graveman – Will undergo Tommy John surgery.  The doctor should be skeptical if Graveman shows up at the surgery with tendons he ‘found’ that he wants the doctor to use.

Elvis Andrus – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 5 RBIs and his 4th homer, and 2nd homer in the last two games.  Yes, he’s heating up, but on a sorta unrelated note (like most of this is related!), everyone should listen to Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast, Revisionist History, especially the last episode about Elvis.

Willie Calhoun – 1-for-4 and his 1st homer.  You mean, if the Rangers play him, he can hit?  No way!  I know your name is not Josh, but you’re joshing me!

Delino DeShields – Optioned to Triple-A.  *wavy lines indicating a dream sequence* Whoa, I’m 65 years old?  Damn, my hair is still dope.  Oh my God, Delino DeShields Jr. Jr. is doing well in Triple-A, I gotta write a sleeper post!  Hey, why is there a Russian flag outside my residence?  *wavy lines*  That was one weird dream.

    Fantasy Master Lothario,

    I only wish you had that Tim Tebow knowledge prior to castle experience. If you were pumped about the dog cesarean, those safari pants plus Tebow would have been one notch higher (lower?).

    I am still waiting on Canseco Part 2 Podcast. Be great if you had Tebow on as a guest but instead of coming in hot, throw some underhand pitches and talk about his experience before you bring the John Hicks Fastball (virginity)… no that wouldn’t be razzball. come in doubting his claim for second one!

    As always, appreciate the insight.

    c. Mark Twain quote of the day for July 25

    Robert Hardy was our first ABOLITIONIST–awful name! He was a journeyman cooper, and worked in the big cooper-shop belonging to the great pork-packing establishment which was Marion City’s chief pride and sole source of prosperity. He was a New-Englander, a stranger. And, being a stranger, he was of course regarded as an inferior person–for that has been human nature from Adam down–and of course, also, he was made to feel unwelcome, for this is the ancient law with man and the other animals. Hardy was thirty years old, and a bachelor; pale, given to reverie and reading. He was reserved, and seemed to prefer the isolation which had fallen to his lot. He was treated to many side remarks by his fellows, but as he did not resent them it was decided that he was a coward.

    All of a sudden he proclaimed himself an abolitionist–straight out and publicly! He said that negro slavery was a crime, an infamy. For a moment the town was paralyzed with astonishment; then it broke into a fury of rage and swarmed toward the cooper-shop to lynch Hardy. But the Methodist minister made a powerful speech to them and stayed their hands. He proved to them that Hardy was insane and not responsible for his words; that no man COULD be sane and utter such words.

    So Hardy was saved. Being insane, he was allowed to go on talking. He was found to be good entertainment. Several nights running he made abolition speeches in the open air, and all the town flocked to hear and laugh. He implored them to believe him sane and sincere, and have pity on the poor slaves, and take measures for the restoration of their stolen rights, or in no long time blood would flow–blood, blood, rivers of blood!

    It was great fun. But all of a sudden the aspect of things changed. A slave came flying from Palmyra, the county-seat, a few miles back, and was about to escape in a canoe to Illinois and freedom in the dull twilight of the approaching dawn, when the town constable seized him. Hardy happened along and tried to rescue the negro; there was a struggle, and the constable did not come out of it alive. Hardy crossed the river with the negro, and then came back to give himself up. All this took time, for the Mississippi is not a French brook, like the Seine, the Loire, and those other rivulets, but is a real river nearly a mile wide. The town was on hand in force by now, but the Methodist preacher and the sheriff had already made arrangements in the interest of order; so Hardy was surrounded by a strong guard and safely conveyed to the village calaboose in spite of all the effort of the mob to get hold of him. The reader will have begun to perceive that this Methodist
    minister was a prompt man; a prompt man, with active hands and a good headpiece. Williams was his name–Damon Williams; Damon Williams in public, Damnation Williams in private, because he was so powerful on that theme and so frequent.

    Cheers,
    Ante

    I don’t know if I’ve seen you mention xstats, but Lourdes’ xstats have been good since the beginning of July when his overall stats were…gah…real…bad. Yes, somehow even worse than this pun attempt. His xslash now is 317/339/555 (xstats.org). Unrelated to anything, there is also a stat called xBACON now. I thought it might make you happy to know. Also, like you I’ve been adding and dropping Nick Williams, but his xstats have consistently been pretty uninspiring (257/334/399 xslash before the bomb today). 95% of hitter wOBAs fall within two standard deviations of their xWOBAs (min 500 PAs). It’s a useful stat–even though two standard deviations is a somewhat large range (+- .040 wOBA)

      @Jordan: Had heard about xBacon, it should be a stat that says, “Everyone says this player is great, but he’s really just okay, and you kinda need to dip him in maple syrup to be wonderful.”

        @Grey: Yeah that’d be useful. Also “this player causes slightly increased chances of cancer but the risk is marginal so go ahead and enjoy him if that’s what you’re into.”

    Great stuff as always.

    Here’s my bullpen:

    SP/RP – Norris, Gsellman
    RP – Vazquez, Bradley, Edwards Jr., Reed, Vizcaino

    Here are some decent RP and SP/RP on the ww:

    Peralta (SP/RP), Brach, K. Herrera, K. McCarthy, Madson, Hildenberger

    We get points for saves, holds, k’s and ip, and lose them for hits, walks, hbp and hr allowed. I’ve slotted Gsellman and Norris in my SP slot to help get some 1 inning points (usually about 10 a night when they do pitch) as every little bit counts. I feel like Brach and Peralta are two good options but would like your opinions first.

    Thanks

    Great write up, not like it matters but Brach seems to be a malcontent. I wouldn’t be surprised if the O’s tried Tanner Scott to close out the 3-4 more wins they get this season. I’m curious to hear Ralphs take on the Orioles return.

    I’m actually nervous to start Bauer vs the Pirates right now. They seem to put up 6-7 runs before the 5th inning each night

    Podcast opening this week was awesome. Haven’t laughed that hard in a long while. You’re a true hero to the 99%.

    I can’t believe I’m asking this but Schoop or Taylor whom I just added? I feel like Schoop is thriving now that he’s off my team. But it’s the Orioles and… I’ll stop as you already know the story. One last fling with Schoop? Why can’t I quit you….

    Gladwell’s podcast is solid. A few of the episodes from last season really grabbed me more than this (the story of the statue for instance), but the finale was so good. That was some heavy stuff about Elvis I never knew about.

    I traded $10 Muncy and $10 Pivetta in a 14 team H2H keeper league from my first place team to the last place team for his $46 Kershaw and $10 Lowrie. The league says it’s a terrible trade and I ripped off the other team. There are many members trying to veto it. I think it’s a reasonable trade with befefit to both sides. Am I wrong to think that?

    Gray-

    Two similar start ’em questions for today for pitchers that have been studs in the past, but have been a little “off” lately and have bad match-ups (and SON is meh), so, in a 12-team mixed H2H 9 starts a week league do you start:

    Robbie Ray @ Cubs (6.1 on SON)
    Charlie Morton @ Rockies (7.2 on SON)

    The alternative is spare parts on the waivers in better matchups. I feel like whatever I do will be the wrong answer here! Love fantasy baseball!

    I read The Martian’s recent write up on Trevor Cahill and had an open slot so I added him in a few leagues when I saw he had Texas up next. I looked at his splits, and he has been AWFUL on the road, but two of those starts were in HOU and BOS. One was in TEX, but his peripherals look decent. Would you start him on the road vs. TEX today, or nah?

    Gattis, Merrifield, Blackmon, Stripling
    Mesoraco, Kingery, Gallo, Kluber

    Which side?

    • GrassyKnollRedding says:
      (link)

      @Kruk_Ain’t_An_Athlete: Looks like Merrifield side and (unless this is a Dynasty league), it doesn’t look close. Kluber may also be hurt all year, so take that into consideration. PS: Grey hates trading catchers. ;-)

      • Kruk_Ain't_An_Athlete says:
        (link)

        @Grey: That’s what I was thinking….I was initially only offered Kluber (non-keeper) and Kingery ($7 keeper) for those four but I thought I would counter with a C he would drop (Meso) and Gallo but I STILL didn’t like it….so I didn’t counter….just rejected it after reading about Kluber.

        Thanks.

            @Grey: I’m thinking about going after Andrus since I have Gyorko at SS. Ugh. I could offer Avisail Garcia and Nelson Cruz for Andrus and one of his decent targets like Desmond, Lamb or K.Seager.
            Maybe start with Seager and Andrus for Cruz and Garcia?

                Is THAT worth going after?

                    (link)

                    @Grey: Trying to get it to my favor by adding CJ Cron in the mix since he’s one of my weakest players.

                    If I add CJ Cron (neg value in trade analyzer) to the Nelson Cruz ($24 according to the Trade analyzer) and Avisail Garcia ($10) offer (probably throw in Gyorko – my weakest link – also neg) and get three guys back that the Trade Analyzer likes – Andrus ($12) and 2 of these guys – Lamb ($12) Seager ($9) or Desmond ($8)

                    So it’s possibly Seager, Lamb and Andrus for Garcia and Nelson Cruz with CJ Cron and Gyorko thrown in.

                    Trade analyzer says he wins $35-$34 unless I “add” in the negative guys – then I win.

    Great Title.

    Regarding Marlins hitting over the last month Dietrich and Anderson have been more valuable hitting 1-2 than

    Acuna/Albies
    Caesar/Hoskins
    Blackmon/DJ
    A whole bunch of other teams 1-2 lineup combos

    Granted some of those combos have had some injuries, but if it’s a decent matchup the law firm of Dietrich and Anderson are solid Batty-calls.

  19. William Hung says:

    I still want to be patient with Travis Shaw in my shallow league, but watching him get 0 RBIs across 2 ABs with the bases loaded is tough… the first time he hits a screamer right to Ryan Zimmerman and the 2nd time he goes down flailing at a slider on the outside corner. That 2nd AB was at the end of the game where Saladino finished off the Nats right after that.

    Hi Grey,

    For 12 team league, H2h, Saves, no holds.

    I normally carry 2 closers. I have Hand and Felipe Vasquez. Is it still worth it to roster Hand? All is looking as Hand would work the set-up innings.

    Top RP available are: Cody Allen, Kelvin Herrera, Barraclough, Hector Rondon, Will Smith, and Osuna who is coming back from the suspension.

    Any moves you recommend?

    Hi Grey

    For my 14 team, h2h league, with obp and 2 UTL, no mi or ci, only 3 OF.

    I currently have Pujols and Ryan Zimmerman back from the DL, but I have not activated them.

    When Zimmerman went to DL, I picked up Jesus Aguilar (Thanks God for that!)… for my UTL and bench I have been using Parra, and Maikel Franco.

    I already tested the market and nobody is willing to pay for Pujols, Zimmerman, Parra or Franco…

    which 2 should i keep?

    I’m considering Pujols and Franco.

    thanks for your help

    Grey, my over the internet friend, good morning!

    Did you see VV got the W last night? I’d been on the fence about starting him next time out and I think that’s going to tip the scales to a No. I’m sure it was his bullpen day anyway, but I don’t think I trust him and SON barely trusts him.

    Does Puig have any trade value? I’ve bolstered my outfield since he went on the DL and think he’s going to be a 3-5 day hold and then drop if he doesn’t hit the ground running. My current outfield is Herrera, Marte, Ozuna, Peralta, Schwarber. I don’t currently have a bench bat so I can lose a pitcher for a week when Puig comes off, but the leash is short.

    If you all want to throw up in your mouth, please listen to John Stirling’s final call of the Rays-Yankees game last night. “The Sun will come out Tanaka” is possibly the corniest thing I have ever heard.

    Any the hoo, I have Jack Flaherty in my MINORS in a keeper league. luckily I had the Biebs on the bench last night but thinking of dropping Biebs and bringing up Flaherty. My starters are:

    Sale, Cole, Carrasco, Stripling, Wood, E-Rod, Biebs

    Anyone have any thoughts on Flaherty ROS? not sure if I need to promote Flaherty as I am way ahead on K’s, ERA and WHIP are good etc… Once Flaherty hits 150 IP, I would have to keep him as a Major league keeper. I am thinking he will be shut down at some point and if he stays under 150 IP total I can keep him as a minor. he is at 101 career wise.

        @Grey: Thanks Grey. I decided to keep him down. I just don’t think he would be enough of a difference on my staff compared to the hot streamer of the week to promote him. Hoping he stays under the 150 IP for sure.

    Morning Grey! Looking at trying to get Mookie Ballgame in one league where I already have Trout, figured why not if possible. Would Cole/Hoskins be an overpay in a 12T mixed H2H? I would slide Olson down from UTIL to cover 1B and my staff would still be Scherzer, Wood, Archer, Bumgarner (dont think he’ll go for a trade revolving around him) and can always stream decently with guys like Eflin and Kingham laying around on the wire. Try and create the mega 1-2 punch or hold?

    Good morning, Grey!

    Here’s how pathetic I am. You told me not to start Bieber. I dropped him. I saw later you picked him up in ‘Perts, figured you changed your mind on him, picked him up and started him. As if you and I have the same team and need to take the same chances. What he hell is wrong with me? Luckily I had Tanaka & Berrios going yesterday, which mitigated what Bieber did–yet wasted what T&B did. Really hope there’s a stat correction coming for Bieber this week, along the lines of the one for Brent Suter (-4ER). That would change a lot.

    Anywho, I’ve got Gleyber coming back. Who’s my drop: Willie C, C Santana, L Gurriel, Hampson, K Tucker, R Zimm, J Bauers? *eyes closed, fingers crossed* (please say Santana)

    Also, Yankee bullpen wise, is Robertson now droppable? Was using him for ratios and the occasional win, although he hasn’t been working steadily in a while.

    Thanks a lot!

    Love today’s headline, Grey. And it’s not just because I’m a Yankee fan.

    Also, quick personal anecdote: My h2h keeper league uses QS over wins. Yesterday I had 4 starters slated to pitch: Anderson vs HOU, Rodon vs LAA, Suarez vs SEA, & Zimmerman vs KC.

    I figured definitely bench Anderson in Coors against Houston, played the other 3. And that’s how you turn 4 starters into 1 QS. ¯\_(?)_/¯

    Who do you like ROS? Piscotty, Schoop, DeJong, Odor. I just dropped DeJong for Piscotty, feeling good about it, but Schoop and Odor are rolling too.

    Also, I know many are asking about Hand. I own him in a 12 team with only $16 left. I’m holding for now, but I need saves help, so I almost dropped Peraza (bench bat) for Brach, then almost went with Will Smith since Brach is involved in trade talks. Ultimately I kept Peraza. For now think I should punt on saves until the playoffs begin, unless a for-sure closer emerges. The steal that Peraza gives me in the playoffs might be more valuable than the 1 save I’d get from a guy like Will Smith.

    Arano, Cishek, Edwards, Ottavino, Hicks, Clippard, Madson

    2) start Buehler today @ PHI? SON likes it…

    thanks!

    Our playoffs are early semis commence 8/6, finals 8/13. I’m in first w/ a bye and making playoff adds now. Who would you rather go with in a QS league.

    Eovaldi (red sox version) – 2 start week in semis(@TOR, @BAL), v TAM in finals
    Gibson – 2 start week in semis(@CLE, @DET), v DET in finals

    Oaktown Kids have Schoop. Up to 123 points and over 60 on offense and pitching. Oh my says the late Dick Enberg.

    I’m closer in the NFBC this a.m. Not sure how.

    A’s have hit 4 home runs 4 straight games. Last night I was closing the grocery store and I turned on the radio in the 8th inning. Sweet comeback. Piscotty has been great since I told you to pick him up a month ago!

    Grey,

    12 team H2H…

    Struggling to find HR/RBI

    Drop Cesar Hernandez for Odor or Schoop?

    Also, is Dee Gordon worth holding?

      Schoop — Sure, if you need SBs

  64. Turd Wendell says:

    With DeShizz getting sent down this means Willie SHOULD be starting, correct? Also Tucker got cut drop Gszellman for him?

    • Grey

    Need your opinion…is it time to drop Ozuna in a 10-team H2H league where AVG is not a category but hits and walks are? He got hot for about two weeks in June but he’s been pretty much a zero most of the season.

    I was looking to pick up a hot bat like Schoop or Piscotty.

    Thanks.

    Thanks it would have hurt me to dose I pray he gets going again for the stretch run.

  73. Dave D, Licensed Sciosciapathologist says:
    (link)

    I can sympathize on Nick Williams. Shocking news on Yoenis. Maybe he and Gary Sanchez can play “rocks, paper, scissors” with Syndergaard or perhaps substitute it with “hand, foot, mouth” while they all watch a The Three Stooges marathon from their leather sofas in the luxury DL box.

    Meanwhile the Angels are now 40-42 and the best player in baseball is being dragged down by three of the worst: Kinsler, Pujols, Valbuena. Its really tough to decide who is worst among Scioscia, Eppler, and Moreno. What’s worse: trading for a washed up Kinsler, playing him, or keeping him on payroll? Same could be said for Valbuena or digning Cozart as a 3B. It’s a damn shame we will not see Trout in the playoffs until he is wearing a color other than red. Luckily the only Angel I own is Andrelton.

    But did you see the rocket Ohtani hit the other night. Does that win any fantasy categories?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I saw the Ohtani homer… Kinsler is the worst! But ‘worst’ makes you think none can be worse still, but Valbuena pulls it off

      • Dave D says:
        (link)

        Yes, it’s a race to the bottom between Kinsler and Valbuena. However, “Albatross” has been abysmal since coming off DL. 5 LOB the other night in a close game. If you factor in his contract I think I’d rather take Bernie Madoff at DH platooning with Ohtani.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Neither Albert nor Madoff can catch up to fastballs anymore

        @Grey:

        Thanks, Grey.

        got 2 others I forgot to ask:

        1. I have 1 transaction left this week. Would you use it to add Tropeano for a spot start tomorrow (vs. CWS) or Osuna on the assumption he’ll jump right back in as the closer in TOR on 8/5? Correspondingly, who would you drop from the following:
        – I. Happ
        – Hampson
        – J. Lamb
        – Will Smith
        – Pivetta
        – Musgrove

        2. Would you trade away Ian Happ to get Eovaldi?

        Thanks again

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          1. Osuna, Hampson 2. Sure

  77. Halibut Helmet says:

    12-team OPS keeper league. Who do you prefer ROS and beyond between Matt Olson and J. Aguilar? Seems pretty tomato-tomahto to me, but xStats has Olson getting really unlucky and Aguilar just a smidge lucky. Thanks Grey!

      Aguilar…Olson…It is tomato-tomahto

    Thoughts on Eovaldi now, worth adding or ignore?

    • Grey

      I like Eovaldi, but I’m still not starting him with confidence every time out

      • Stephen Lyon says:
        (link)

        @Grey: I’m with you on being careful when to start him, but his situation is more favourable now, though, right? Same division but a much, much better team?

        • Grey

  80. GoJays says:

    Grey, you live in LA so you’re probably more dialled in to how the Dodgers are going to manage their players. Do you think Muncy ends up with more than 20 starts at 2B this year? He’s sitting at 9 right now, but hasn’t played there since July 9th. Who the hell knows what happens when (if) both Puig and Turner are back.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Doubt he gets 20 unless someone gets hurt

  81. Gotime says:

    Pitchers…… I was *this close* to posting about Kenta Maeda during his game last night.. before last night his last 4 starts were a combined sub 2.00 era sub 1.00 whip a 12K/9 and 2BB/9… then the 7th inning happened. WTF?! Roofied

    A. Eovaldi over Gibson, Gray, Eflin, Quintana, or Bieber?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hello Grey,
    Great stuff. Especially the Delino Blurb. He will continue to provide hours of entertaining banter.

    Ok, quick story. In our Yahoo 12 Team H2H League Draft with OPS and Holds (yeah, I’m turning the clock back a bit to gripe), I draft Goldy with my first pick (the 9th) and then when my second pick comes around, I am staring at Bryant (who never should have been there) and Machado. Yup, you can guess which way this stupid ass went.

    That’s all. Thanks much Grey.

    Big fan of yours, always enjoy your insight and writing, ended up auto drafting kershaw because of my crappy satelitte wifi. I have tried to trade him all year with no success until last week.

      Yup

    • Yankee My Wanky! says:
      (link)

      @Justin Ralph: You know Justin, I never weigh in on other’s questions as I really don’t consider myself qualified, but I would not do this if I were you. As a Strasburg owner, he is not a guy who is going to help your pitching this year or perhaps any year. Upton is just ok. Stanton is crushing it and poised to do even more.

      • Yankee My Wanky! says:
        (link)

        @Yankee My Wanky!: Ops! I may have read it the wrong way. I thought you were getting those 2 players. Carry on.

  92. OaktownSteve says:
    (link)

    Hey Alright, just noticed I’m 6.5 back in the NFBC…and my team has been basically awful. That’s a league of attrition.

    Oaktown Kids lost Snell and Eduardo Rodriguez but keep on trucking on. They’re at 123.5 right now. I was just looking and they have an outside shot at 130 points. Never seen a total that high in an NFBC league I’ve been in. Right now they have Dickerson and Schoop en fuego.

    I did not get a chance to check out Suarez but maybe over the weekend I’ll take a look. Surface I’m not sure there’s going to be much there there.

    I’m not sure if offense is up or down or what so far this year. Lost that narrative thread. Anecdotally, I can’t remember a season where there were more games in which a team scored 15+ runs. There have been some ridiculous totals.

    The A’s are 1.5 back in the wild card. They’ve hit 4 home runs as a team in 4 consecutive games for the first time in franchise history. Trivino to Familia to Treinen is quite the gauntlet.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Oh, completely! My team’s been bad for a few weeks now… And this week I forgot to set my lineup so I’m missing 3 starts, which hurts… re: 15+ runs games –> There’s been more position players pitching this year than any ever, right?

      Nice on the kids!

  93. Young Jedi says:

    Grey I heard Ralph and you talking about Hampson on the Podcast and he said maybe he overshot the projections for Kingery.

    Classic fall apart fifth for Buehler. Crappy Scott Kingery, a man who I watched put up one of the worst at bats I’ve ever seen on Sunday against Phil Hughes, lines a pitchers pitch the opposite way over the fence. You know, things you expect from a guy with a sub .100 ISO and sub .330 slg. Jesmuel Valentin and Andrew Knapp get in on the action. Roberts tacks on an IBB to his ledger before he departs. Scott Alexander lets in all his runners.

    I officially hate pitching.

  97. Let's Play Two says:
    (link)

    I’m in a standard, 5×5 roto (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG). In first place by a wide margin, but HR and RBI categories are close between three teams with me in 2nd in those categories.

    My OF’s are Betts, Judge, Benintendi, Springer and I have Rosario who I place in the UTIL spot or OF spot. I also have Goldy or Bregman to put in UTIL as well.

    Would you make Rosario part of a trade to get Khris Davis for the HR and RBI’s?

                He’s a low average guy prone to slumps and won’t steal any bases, but his stats look good compared to Rosario in the other three categories with close to the same AB’s. A’s lineup is better than the Twinkies this year and Escobar and Dozier could be on the move by the deadline impacting Rosario’s R/RBI totals.

                Davis – 57 R / 25 HR / 72 RBI / .251
                Rosario – 69 R / 19 HR / 62 RBI / 7 SB / .307

    1. DeJong or Peraza?
    2. Dozier or Brantley?
    3. 1B ranks ROS: Desmond, Hosmer, Healy, Bell?

    Thanks

    positions don’t matter, would you trade Robbie Ray for Joey Gallo, in a 4 ever keeper. 10 team, 6×6 roto QS and OPB

    deep dynasty, h2h, all the categories :

    Receive : Treat Urner and Byron Buxton for Correa. I’m in win-now-and-the-foreseeable-future mode, and I have a decent OF situation. I’m of the camp that considers Correa a great dynasty asset, but I’m also of the camp that owns him this year. thanks in advance Symbolic Color.

    What’s good Grey? Quality U.S. history references the last couple of days. Ended up trading Willie Calhoun for Aaron Hicks in my 12-team, OBP, SLG% league and managed to pick up $5 in the process. In reading through the comment thread, I’m picking up that you’re not a big fan of Puig the ROY.

    As you know, Puig comes off the DL this weekend. Who’s the drop? Gardner, Hicks, or Lamb?

    Thinking Lamb, but just wanted to bounce it off you.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Hey, ‘poop! Puig’s okay, but no one knows what to expect… I’d try him over Lamb tho

    10 team, dynasty keep forever. Need help in pitching. We only start 9 position players.

    Trade Haniger/Story for Dozier/Greinke?

    Would be replacing Moncada at 2B and still have Trea Turner at SS

    Hey Grey,

    In a 10 team 6×6 OPS and 6×6 QS league would you trade Odor and Muncy for Tanaka and DJ Lemahieu?

    Thanks!

  112. Steve says:

    Looks like Domingo Santana might be traded soon (imminently), if he can land a starting gig, do you like him ROS? What tier are you thinking? better than Puig?

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I’d take Domingo, same as Puig

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      He was pulled due to injury, not a trade

  113. GrassyKnollRedding says:

    Hey Grey,

    Which one should I sit on the bench tonight?

    Piscotty @ Texas vs Martin Perez
    K Tucker @ Coors vs. Jon Gray (chance it might be rained out)
    Willie C @ home vs. Edwin Jackson

    Thanks a lot!

    Grey,

    Need your help on this trade.

    I was offer this.

    I get J.A. Happ and Aaron Hicks
    I give Pollock and Morton

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Sounds terrible

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @NH: getting worse at 2 positions at same time (out of 2) is probably not the way to be.

  117. NH says:
    (link)

    Okay. Who would you trade for Happ out of these players.

    Pollock, Votto, S. Marte, K. Marte, Winker, C-Mart, Morton

    Rumours has it that Yankees are in the verge of getting Happ.

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      @NH: Are you related to Happ? Why would you want him so bad over what you already have? Maybe C-Mart since he’s hurt…

      • NH says:
        (link)

        No I am not related LOL.

        Looking to get another good pitcher for my team. If Happ gets traded to the Yankees he should get more wins. In this league a win is worth 10 points.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Winker, Marte

  118. William Hung says:

    @Grey – I need you to give my guys a pep talk… here’s the lineup I’ve been rolling out there more or less since the ASB ended

    C- Posey
    1B- Abreu
    2B- Merrifield
    3B- Rendon
    SS- Lindor
    OF- Betts, Rosario, Desmond
    UTIL- Shaw
    B- Tucker, Devers, Calhoun

    Since the ASB ended, my guys have hit a total of 3 HRs… 3!!!! Most teams in my league have surpassed 10 by now. Can I get a prayer for some power? I went for throwing darts at high upside bench bats since I am hoping a couple of them will get hot for the playoffs. I regret a little bit of cutting Gallo for Calhoun.

    Anyway, I’m thinking my first bench bat to be cut for a streaming SP/closer through trade will probably be Calhoun, followed by one of Shaw or Devers. I’m trying to stay patient, but this futility makes it tough.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, Calhoun can prolly be lost

  119. Ron Swanson says:

    should I deal Wade Davis for Carlos Martinez?

      Grey says:

      Sounds fair

  120. NH says:
    (link)

    Thoughts?

    I get Kemp, Allen, Peraza
    I give S. Marte, Pollock

      Doesn’t sound great

    oh man TB is getting even more awesome with their moves, romo gets 2 outs in 8th, moved to 3B for the 9th inning, venters comes in to get out just bird, then romo goes back to RP for 2 more outs. gotta be fun (and smart) to be the TB manager.

    Would I be crazy to trade Bryant for Muncy in a keeper league that I’m trying to win this year? Bryant under contract through 2020 at very reasonable $16.

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      @Dan: guessing muncy is MUCH cheaper for this to be a 1 for 1? even then the bryant owner should probably get more.

    ROS: Schoop or Peraza? 5×5 H2H. I lost DJ and grabbed Peraza, but I think I may have missed his hot streak.

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      @hal_incandenza: needs, steals or HR’s. easy for me to say though as i’ve had both all year in 14 teamer (with MI slot)

    Jon Gray with a strong start at home against the Stros. I left him on my bench, but pumped to see him potentially turning the corner here.
