Nick Senzel for 2023 Fantasy and the Waiver Wire


“Ding Dong ain’t acquired shizz on me!” That’s a well-known quote from Denzel Washington after my autocorrect will get achieved with it. See, my autocorrect retains altering Nick Senzel to Nick Denzel, and I’ve uninterested in ducking altering it. I referred to as AppleCare and requested them tips on how to change my autocorrect settings to “Not silly” and so they laughed, then, after they had been achieved laughing, I requested once more and so they mentioned, “Oh, you’re severe?” Ding Dong ain’t acquired shizz on me with how severe I’m! No, this isn’t the star of Antone Disher, and it’s Antwone Fisher! This isn’t Robbin Carter, and it’s Ruben Carter! The Boner Collector? Why does my autocorrect even know that phrase?! I’ve by no means in my life typed such a factor! So, Nick Senzel aka Nick Denzel was as soon as a high prospect. That ship sailed so way back it’s reached its vacation spot already at: Port U-A-Bust. He’s sipping Mai Tais with Garrett Hampson and Bubba Starling, however the DJ simply introduced there’s one last dance, as a result of he’s taking part in Final Dance by Donna Summer season, not Michael Jordan’s The Final Dance, and Senzel is the one one going to the dance flooring to maneuver his hips. Hopefully, he doesn’t damage himself! He’s able to a pleasant combo of energy and pace and by no means struck out a lot, so he might hit .280. Can he keep on the sector? I’ve my doubts, however I might see including him in all leagues. He’s in spite of everything a two-time Oskar winner. Rattling it, autocorrect! Oscar is the extra widespread spelling! Why would you alter that? Anyway, right here’s some extra gamers to Purchase or Promote this week in fantasy baseball:


Blake Sabol – Doesn’t this man sound like a sort of fur? “Grandma beloved her Blake Sabol, and she or he wished you to have it.” A mom palms her daughter a coat that may finest be described as a run-over lifeless ferret.

Connor Wong – Am I telling you to cozy up Wong? I suppose, and you may’t be a supposer with out *folds arms like a breakdancer* Sup, poser?

LaMonte Wade Jr. – Went again to take a look at his recreation log from 2021, as a result of I keep in mind him being stable for a stretch two years in the past, and, positive sufficient, I don’t keep in mind my marriage ceremony anniversary, however I used to be proper about LaMonte Wade Jr. He had 12 homers in two months again then, so he’s able to stretches like this.

Carlos Santana – Has been scorching, but additionally: How about all these steals he’s getting? He’s out-stealing Bo Bichette proper now. When Santana was youthful, if he would’ve had three-inch longer cleats, he might’ve been a 30-steal man. Who knew?

Trey Mancini – Enjoyable reality! Un and Dos Mancini are his youthful brothers. Additionally, Mancini is scorching, which is sweet, however, with Matt Mervis up, I think about a Mancini and Hosmer platoon occurs of some type, till Morel is promoted.

Connor Joe – Should you don’t know by now the place’d he come from and the place’d he go? I don’t know what to inform you.

Ji-Hwan Bae – “Hey, I’m a time traveler and I simply wished you to know you must draft all Pirates, besides Oneil Cruz.” — That’s a man I punched within the nostril again in March for annoying me.

Taylor Partitions – Don’t suppose his breakout continues, however he’s on tempo for a 25/25/.280 season, so kinda needs to be rostered simply in case.

Enmanuel Valdez – Right here’s what I mentioned the opposite day, “I googled “Enmanuel Valdez” and it mentioned, “Do you imply Emmanuel Lewis star of Webster or the Exxon Valdez?” Guess we’ll see what Itch’s mentioned, “Valdez ranked thirty ninth on MLB Pipeline’s record of the 47 prospects traded this week, which appears like proof of the continuing blindness with which a lot of the public-facing prospect world treats Houston prospects. Valdez is slashing .327/.410/.606 with 21 house runs and 26 doubles in 82 video games throughout Double and Triple A this season. He’s 23 years outdated. You wanna rank 20 low-minors pitchers forward of him? Be my visitor. Extra Valdez for the remainder of us. Besides Gray, screw him.” Okay, not good. Valdez could possibly be a 15+ homer, .270+ hitter in Fenway with kinda bleh pace. It’s tremendous in deeper leagues, so long as he’s taking part in.” And that’s me quoting me and Itch!

Christopher Morel – Since Matt Mervis was referred to as up, Morel must be subsequent. I imply, proper?

Josh Jung – That he’s solely rostered in 22% of leagues at ESPN is actually hilarious. 78% of ESPN leagues are deserted already. Simply drafted and the passwords had been forgotten. ACKSUALLY, Jung ought to’ve been drafted so I don’t even understand how they’re developing with that rostership share.

Isaac Paredes – “I really like a Paredes!” — That’s Ethel Merman taking part in fantasy baseball.

Ezequiel Duran – Lot of individuals maintain asking if Duran goes ot lose a job when Seager returns. Sure, very seemingly. That doesn’t imply he can’t be grabbed now.

Christian Encarnacion-Strand – I’m tremendous hesitant to record CES, as a result of it’s this massive commerce present in Vegas, and I’ve acquired this new digital recreation to debut that is known as Ay-I, which is AI, nevertheless it provides a thick Italian accent to all its solutions. “What’s the most important lake within the U.S.?” “Ay-I suppose it’s-a Lake-a Superior-ay-oh.” I’m additionally hesitant suggesting Christian Encarnacion-Strand as a result of persons are gonna begin asking within the feedback to drop guys they need to not drop for him.

Luke Raley – Who’s hotter than this man just lately? Not many. Actually? Oh, Raley!

Jack Suwinski – Brent Rooker is a man I like too, and neither him nor Suwinski appear underneath 50% rostered, which is the cut-off for this put up. Do I believe Brent Rooker’s breakout is actual? The Brookeout?! Yeah, I believe it is likely to be.

Jarren Duran – Talking of scorching bats, he has a .500-ish BABIP. A .350 BABIP could be suspect. So, yeah, don’t defrost Ted Williams’s head fairly but for Jarren Duran’s run at .400. Oh, you already did? Properly, are you able to no less than put it within the fridge for now? It’s on the entrance seat of your automobile and your automobile is parked within the solar? C’mon, man!

Jake Bauers – Proper now I’ve Bauers and Jake Meyers masking 5 outfielder spots in an AL-Solely. Altering group title to The Two Jakes, and making an attempt to overlook this group like Chinatown.

Edward Olivares – I received’t be linking to my Edward Olivares sleeper right here, however you’ll find it by, rattling, I linked to it, didn’t I?

Matthew Liberatore – Playing cards picked the flawed time to go deal with their pitchers pitching to contact, however they nonetheless have one man within the minors who will get Ks, and needs to be up quickly. Missed out on Pfaadt, Stone, Varland and Drey Jameson? Properly, fortunate you! You will have one other shot quickly although in Liberatore.

Tylor Megill – This can be a Streamonator name, like the decision it makes to CVS.

Drew Smyly – That is additionally a Streamonator name. “Can I speak with the pharmacist? Prescription? No, I wished to speak to their money register. I assumed we had a connection.”

Yennier Cano – Began the yr as Yenny, then he was the Yennier, and now he’s the Yenniest. There’s no class extra unpredictable than Holds, then throw in that center relievers come out of nowhere annually. Like simply magically seem. Then disappear the subsequent yr. Nearly like throwing 96 MPH for 20 minutes each different day for six months isn’t good for one’s arm.

Jason Adam – Give me the arrogance sooner or later, Lord, to choose up Jason Adam and fake like he’s going to be the Rays’ nearer.

Will Smith – “Now throwing to the Rangers’ new catcher, Al O’Peesha is…Oh my God, he’s throwing palms! Somebody cease him!”

Michael King – Earlier than you’re like, “Clay Holmes is the nearer, Gray. I imply, you could have a pleasant face and all, however you’re kinda silly.” Holmes got here out of nowhere final yr to grow to be the nearer. He was nice, and now he’s been dangerous for, like, the final 4 months.


Matt Chapman – Don’t normally double dip on the Sells, however the Anime Gray video on the high of the web page isn’t sufficient for the way massive of a promote this man is. Matt Chapman can be a man who I believe goes to break down so quick it is advisable be promoting simply as rapidly. He has a BABIP that solely Jarren Duran could be jealous of. Matt David Chapman murders baseballs. Matt Chapman murders batting averages. He’s hitting what on batting common? C’mon, inform it to me once more however slowly as a result of I don’t imagine you. He’s hitting how excessive? Okay, I believe I is likely to be excessive as a result of the quantity you simply advised me is insane. He’s a very good Chap, man? I don’t know, and cease doing that pretend British accent. Chapman is a 27-homer, .230 hitter. No matter he’s doing now could be absurd and is mindless. Promote! Quick! I wouldn’t promote for a ticket to see the brand new underwater musical, Clear Your Snorkel Masks, Younger Man! however I’d go to our Fantasy Baseball Commerce Analyzer and discover choices.
