Now it’s time for everyone’s favorite game, Fantasy Baseball, Fun With Numbers.  Ding, ding, ding… Bassoon… Triangle!  Triangle!  Triangle!  Cow bell!  More cow bell!  One last ding.  In today’s installment of Fantasy Baseball, Fun With Numbers, we’re going to look at some hitters and try to figure out if maybe the numbers tell a different story than their names tell.  Please, blog, may I have some more?

I didn’t even get a chance to write the Billy Butler fantasy sleeper post before I had to bring out the “This Guy vs That Guy” post.  Geez, people are really overhyping early this year, huh?  (More of a question to myself, you don’t have to answer.)  What did Butler do last year that has him screaming up the rankings on so many draft sheets?  Please, blog, may I have some more?

I’m a pretty harsh critic of Razzball, but occasionally we’ll post things that I even feel are extremely helpful.  Usually these are done by other people for our site.  One of those things was the Fantasy Baseball War Room. (Now with an NL-Only and AL-Only version.)  Another helpful thingie-ma-whosie is the 2010 fantasy baseball tiers, brought to you by regular commenter and all-around solid F.O.R., Figgy.   Please, blog, may I have some more?
