TJ Friedl Fantasy Baseball and Extra

9 min read

Yesterday’s sport in Cincy noticed the Cubs and Reds mix for 22 runs. So, what’s happening with my son? Elly De La Cruz went 0-for-5 with 4 Ks? Overlook Ticker Tease, that’s Ticker I’m-A-Born-Once more-Virgin-From-That-Teasing. Not cool, man! Dropping my virginity as soon as was awkward sufficient! That 22 runs is why I get so petrified of Reds starters in Nice American Smallpark. It’s harmful! It’s like for those who’re allergic to peanuts and so they throw you this:

There was no star star yesterday, however TJ Friedl went 2-for-5 together with his twelfth homer. Thomas Juice Friedl’s homer was joined by Tyler Stephenson (3-for-3, 3 RBIs), who hit his eleventh homer, and Spencer Steer (1-for-4, 2 runs) hit his nineteenth homer. Additionally, identical sport, however on the opposite crew, there was Jeimer Candelario (1-for-4, 2 runs) together with his twenty first homer, and 2nd homer in two days. *loudspeaker comes on* For those who departed the Jeimer practice when it grew to become the Jeimer battle bus, then on the subsequent cease you might re-enter the practice. Lastly, Cody Bellinger (2-for-5, 3 RBIs) hit his twenty third homer and that is likely to be his ADP subsequent yr. I consider Cody’s inside the highest 25 once more. I repeat, Cody is inside the highest 25. Anyway, right here’s what else I noticed this weekend in fantasy baseball:

Graham Ashcraft – Hit the IL with a stress response in his toe. His toe has an ulcer? Hmm, this medical journal is so wasted on me!

Andrew Abbott – 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.22. Suppose we’re gonna must take a protracted, onerous take a look at Reds starters subsequent yr. They’re growing some good pitchers there, even when the stadium is lower than superb.

Javier Assad – 8 IP, 0 ER, 8 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 2.69. “After Russian forces had been compelled out of Syrian, Assad was dedicated to placing the Reds of their place,” an excerpt from the Washington Publish’s sports activities part. Any hoo! Assad’s stuff seems to be mediocre and his peripherals say he shouldn’t be this good. Alas, he’s. Or has been, no less than. Streamonator hates his subsequent, however I don’t see how one can not begin him.

Cristian Javier – 6 IP, 3 ER, 4 hits, zero walks, 8 Ks, ERA at 4.65. That begin regarded higher, so I went to have a look at his Statcast, and that appears horrible. I’m not speaking about his precise numbers. Although, they’re not good. I’m speaking about what did they do to the design? Everybody liked the sliders! What is that this:

Jasson Dominguez – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 2nd homer since being referred to as up on Friday. Oh my God his homers are so easy.

Gleyber Torres – 2-for-4 and his twenty fourth homer, hitting .272. Completely satisfied Gleyber Day!

Riley Greene – Hit the IL with elbow irritation after making a spectacular catch. However at what price? Oh, proper, an IL stint.

Tarik Skubal – 7 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.77. It’s gonna be the winter of the Skubal sleeper. Simply watch. Wanna wager? I’ve an imaginary 5 {dollars} burning a gap in my imaginary pants’ pocket.

Spencer Torkelson – 1-for-4 and his twenty fifth homer. The place does Tork get drafted subsequent yr? And why is it too excessive regardless of the place it’s? Nah, if it’s tremendous late it is likely to be fascinating, however 30 homers, .230 and a horrible lineup doesn’t sound increased than one hundred and seventy fifth total, and I feel he is likely to be.

Mike Clevinger – 4 IP, 8 ER, ERA at 3.90. After pitching effectively to attempt to get off the White Sox, he not has to attempt, like the remainder of that crew.

Jordan Montgomery – 3 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 3.46. JoMo is sort of as dangerous because the film Bottoms. I’m sorry, how’d that good critiques? What am I lacking?

Mitch Garver – 4-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 14th and fifteenth homer, hitting .280. There’s a parallel universe the place Garver’s performed 145 video games yearly of his profession and has 35 homers annually. The parallel universe is on planet Garth.

Adolis Garcia – 1-for-5 and his thirty fourth homer, and his a centesimal RBI, which doesn’t matter as a result of his stats don’t rely, as a result of, I feel, he doesn’t take sufficient walks.

Byron Buxton – Injured serving as DH within the minors. Conspiracy Idea Alert! The extra dynamic a participant, the extra they will’t keep on the sector.

Royce Lewis – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and a slam (10) and legs (4). I can’t clarify why you’re not choosing him up both. Look within the mirror, and ask your self.

Johnny Cueto – 5 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 5.54, as he was activated from the IL. He was on the IL with a viral sensation. He had a case of the Oliver Anthony’s. *intern whispers in ear* Oh, turned out it was a viral an infection.

Sandy Alcantara – 8 IP, 2 ER, 11 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 4.14. It’s gonna be hilarious after I’m really touting Sandy so that you can draft him subsequent yr, however it’s like I at all times say, it’s about worth, and that’s all it’s ever about, and his worth goes to be good; I really feel this in my outdated, decrepit bones.

Luis Arraez -2-for-4, 2 runs and his sixth homer, hitting .356. Not even hitting .360? What a loser!

Lane Thomas – 3-for-5, 2 RBIs and his twenty third homer, and third homer in three video games. Enjoyable truth! When Lane Thomas has stubble, he calls it crags and says he’s Lane Thomas English Muffins.

Danny Jansen – Hit the IL with a fractured center finger. The Jays will now flip to Alejandro Kirk, who, mockingly, I’m giving a center finger.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his twenty first homer. Yo, one love, however is Cake Batter probably the most boringest (an precise phrase) or what?

Spencer Horwitz – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer. As Horwitz rounded the bases on his residence run trot, he handed out enterprise playing cards to the Rockies gamers for his accounting enterprise.

Justin Lawrence – 2/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 4.18, given up 7 ER in his final six video games. You may get a save or two, however at what price? *screaming on the heavens* At what price?!

Logan Allen – 5 IP, 4 ER, 7 hits, zero walks, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.77.  Streamonator hated this one, however I streamed him, and it reveals you: A) Belief the robotic. B) Don’t belief a man that seems like a furnishings retailer that rents its sofas. C) There’s no C.

Taj Bradley – 5 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners (5 BBs), 7 Ks, ERA at 5.42, as he was recalled. He has roughly fifteen innings left in his arm. I’d recommend they let him throw one inning a sport for fifteen video games. No? Oh, then he may get two extra begins. At this level, he’s a streamer, however he’s going to get all my monocles for subsequent yr.

Seth Lugo – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.49. Lugo > Corbin Burnes. No! I child. It’s not even shut, however Lugo has been a strong waiver wire pickup.

Juan Soto – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his twenty eighth homer, and his third straight sport with a homer. Horny Dr. Pepper simply wanted his Padres to be out of the race.

Manny Machado – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his twenty sixth homer. Macho macho Machado, Manny! (Very complicated chant offered by AI.)

Kyle Harrison – 5 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.70. Wow, I didn’t know lottery tickets might really poop in my hand. That stinks.

Alex Cobb – 3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 3.74. I acquired Cobb’d.

Adam Duvall – 1-for-4 and his nineteenth homer. He has 13 homers within the 2nd half. Probably the most anybody has is 17. (For what it’s Cronenworth, his teammate Casas has 13 homers within the half, as effectively.)

Masataka Yoshida – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 14th homer. If I’d’ve recognized all I wanted to do to get him going was to say drop him. I’d’ve performed that in July.

Chris Sale – 5 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 4.46. Speak about inefficient; he threw 100 pitches in these 5 innings. Ain’t attempting to be a hater right here, however he doesn’t appear proper.

Ty France – Didn’t play yesterday. Was hit on the elbow Saturday night time, and was in quick ache. Because the saying goes, the pains in France falls totally on the elbow, as I ‘splains.

Dominic Canzone – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his fifth homer, and 2nd homer in as many video games. *saying his identify like calzone* Take a look at my lovely boy, Canzone! Goes-a so effectively with a schmotato.

George Kirby – 3 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 3.39. He was scratched earlier final week, so hopefully he was simply off, and never nonetheless underneath the climate.

Pete Alonso – 3-for-4, 4 RBIs and his fortieth and forty first homer. Albombso-so!

Jeff McNeil – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his seventh homer. McNeil’s been scorching for the reason that All-Star Break. To not be confused with Lenny Dykstra in a quick meals drive-thru, that’s McNails.

Luis Rengifo – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his fifteenth homer, hitting .260, and has been hitting leadoff. The bar for being the 2nd finest Angels’ hitter is just like the world’s tallest midget contest, however Rengifo is a reasonably tall midget in that context. (Or any context, to be sincere.)

Zac Gallen – 5 1/3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.48. The O’s face is the other of the O face, and occurs when your pitcher will get hit by the Orioles.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. – 2-for-4 and his twenty second homer, and 2nd homer in three video games. For those who moved on from Lou-Gu-Ju, you may need to reevaluate that call.

Corbin Carroll – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his twenty fourth homer. Level in favor of his shoulder not being a pile of mush.

Jack Flaherty – 4 2/3 IP, 4 ER, ERA at 4.84. We’re in massive “what does the Streamonator say and determine from there” time. Flaherty’s subsequent begin is horrible, and I’d completely lose him.

Bobby Miller – 7 IP, 1 ER, 4 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.80. His subsequent begin is principally the other of Flaherty’s.

Matt Olson – 2-for-4 and his forty fourth homer, hitting .266. You may have roughly 4 weeks to hit 29 homers to tie Bonds, get to work! Okay, kidding, however I want to see 50 homers from him.

Alec Marsh – 2 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 6.23. Marsh had all of the qualities you search for in a pitcher, besides he was developed by the Royals, and ruined. (Keep in mind, Ragans wasn’t developed by them.)

Aaron Nola – 4 2/3 IP, 7 ER, ERA at 4.55. Personally, I’m inspired that Nola has discovered methods to surrender runs that don’t embody solely permitting homers. Lowercase yay, selection.

Mark Canha – 2-for-4 and a slam (9) and legs (8), and was hitting shut .450 within the final week. For those who Canha, the world Canha’s with you. While you Cryha, you Cryha alone. Additionally, scorching schmotato alert!

William Contreras – 1-for-5 and his fifteenth homer. That’s the third homer he’s hit throughout his 13-game hitting streak. Catchers don’t excite me, however Contcheras do in the event that they’re low cost subsequent yr.

J.T. Realmuto – 1-for-2 and a slam(17) and legs (13), and 2nd homer in as many video games. Jerry Tomato smashed that and yelled, “It’s ketchup time!”

Johan Oviedo – 3 2/3 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 4.27. Earlier than the sport, “He threw a two-hitter, full sport shutout, and now he’s dealing with the Playing cards? Give me that!” After the sport began, “Why am I, your most mustachioed boy, in hell?”

Zach Thompson – 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 hits, zero walks, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.91. That’s good, however Streamonator hates his subsequent and I agree.

Jordan Walker – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 14th homer, 2nd homer in two video games and third homer in 4 video games, and shush! We’re attempting to suppress your 2024 fantasy worth!

Drew Rom – 4 2/3 IP, 3 ER, ERA at 7.24. Enjoyable truth! Drew Rom is the man on the Radio Shack within the 1980’s, who regarded like Bernie Goetz, and truly knew what he was speaking about. Oh, wait, no. Seeing he’s a Cardinals rookie, who had a 4.8 BB/9 in Triple-A, which is hilariously dangerous, and you need to keep away from him and Bernie Goetz.
