Momma Weaver has a mullet too. Has to, right? I mean, Jeff and Jered both look they’re on the way to the gun show. When Jered Weaver comes in from the bullpen, he should be driven in an RV. Okay, but his stuff is not trashy. It’s nasty! Hello, I am Almost Poet, I make almost rhymes. They are enough to stymie!Please, blog, may I have some more?
We already went over the top 20 catchers for 2010 and the top 20 1st basemen for 2010. Today, it’s all about the top 20 2nd basemen. The 2nd basemen pool is shallow (not as kiddie-sized as the shortstops, though it’s nearly as deep as 3rd basemen, but we’ll get to those). To recap, this final ranking is from ESPN Player Rater with my comments. The Player Rater allows me to be impartial while looking at how I ranked them in the preseason. Anyway, here’s the top 20 2nd basemen for 2010 fantasy baseball and how they compare to where I originally ranked them:

After drudging through an Andy Dufresne-type tunnel for the top 20 catchers for 2010, I find myself with a group that actually really hurt or helped your team depending on how you drafted. If you went wrong with your 1st baseman, it could kill your season. If you went right, you might’ve won. Here’s my preseason Top 20 1st Basemen for 2010 for reference sake. Also, to recap, this final ranking is from ESPN Player Rater with my comments. The Player Rater allows me to be impartial while looking at how I ranked them in the preseason. Anyway, here’s the top 20 1st basemen for 2010 fantasy baseball and how they compared to where I originally ranked them:

It feels like yesterday the baseball regular season started. You wrote “I heart baseball” in permanent marker on your arm, then you met a girl who wrote “I heart guys who heart baseball” on her arm, then, during sex in September, you screamed out “I love you, Tulo!” and now you don’t have baseball or your girlfriend. C’mon, calender, make like a soldier and turn to March. The only cure for the post-baseball season blues — recapping the preseason top twenty lists and being hand-fed Doritos. First up, Cool Ranch and our preseason Top 20 Catchers for 2010.Please, blog, may I have some more?
For the frequent readers and commenters of my weekly installments of Scouting the Unknown, I am retiring them until this spring. Now, it’s time for the Minor League Reviews. For those of you who had Grey’s articles and advice to keep your attention away from my articles, during this fall and winter, I will have your undivided attention on Wednesday; well, almost undivided attention – you could always scroll down to Grey’s article, or ask Grey in my article too.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The final results are in and I tested negative! Oh, wait, this is for the fantasy baseball leagues. Um, yeah, ignore that first sentence. This year in an unprecedented move of unprecedented size and bubbles. We’re giving away a hot tub to the Fantasy Razzball winner. I believe it’s a time machine too!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to the year end Razzball Awards! Or as they call them in New Jersey, the “What’s this crap?” Unlike the ESPYs, you won’t have to wear a tux or listen to Derek Jeter try to be funny.

I was thinking the other day that Jason Heyward is so young that he doesn’t remember George Bush, Sr. being president. I mean, he’s heard of him (I think), but he was only 3-years-old when he left office. Amongst other things, Heyward missed John Travolta’s career downturn with talking babies, Sean Penn protecting Madonna, Timothy Dalton playing Bond and Billy Crystal as a leading man.Please, blog, may I have some more?
