I don’t have enough spam, give me the Razzball email newsletter!

I was in no rush to review the signing of Victor Martinez by the Detroit Tigers.  No, it wasn’t all the tryptophan.  Players going to a new club that won’t change their fantasy value doesn’t really float my boat.  So let’s talk about what’s really on my mind, what a crock of shizz Paranormal Activity was.  Please, blog, may I have some more?

If you search for fantasy baseball, the first result is Yahoo Fantasy Baseball.  (We’re first for fantasy baseball blog.  Natch!  Or natchurally, if you’re long-winded.)  But this isn’t about Yahoo fantasy baseball.  (Is Yahoo always with an exclamation mark?  Yahoo has a volume problem, huh?)  When people find us, they are not searching for Yahoo fantasy baseball, but what are they searching for when they find us?  Please, blog, may I have some more?

The Run Down

Grey just finished a fantastic fantasy outlook on one of the most dynamic arms in the majors in Aroldis Chapman and the BBWAA just voted Joey Votto NL MVP on Monday. Please, blog, may I have some more?

Let’s start with what I said a few months ago, “This year in the minors Domonic Brown had a line of 65/20/68/.327/17 and .391/.589/.980.  Let’s recap, whoa/wow/nice/yum-yum/don’t mind if I do and yowsers/that’s lovely/yowsersthat’slovely.  To break that down for the people who skimmed the first two sentences, he has 20/20 potential with plate discipline.  Please, blog, may I have some more?

I’m not sure anyone can hit Aroldis Chapman.  For a pitcher, that’s a pretty good thing.  If you speak street, he be fire on Crunk Juice.  He can throw the ball faster than Bob Feller on a motorcycle.  Fidel Castro used to karaoke Sublime by singing, “I don’t practice Santeria, I can’t see Aroldis’ fastball.”  It’s fast.  Please, blog, may I have some more?

The Run Down
Quite a disappointing season for Dodger fans, and that’s without introducing the McCourt’s divorce into the picture. Please, blog, may I have some more?

For Freddie Freeman, let’s start with what Stephen had to say earlier this year, “Turning 21 in a little over a month, Freeman has consistently hit the ball well with his “sweet, fluid swing.” He currently displays doubles power, but scouts believe this gap power should, and will translate to more home runs (seems to be happening this year).  Please, blog, may I have some more?
