I have to warn you. When I wrote this post, I was listening to Geto Boys’ Mind Is Playing Tricks On Me on repeat. Granted, because the song is long, it probably only played three times. Since I was about to spit fire, it felt appropriate that I sat alone in my four-cornered room staring at candles.Please, blog, may I have some more?
From the files of “Oh, my God, Grey is really stupid,” I predicted Shaun Marcum would start this year’s All-Star game. It’s hyperbole, people! No, it’s man love. No, it’s I’ve lost my mind for Shaun Marcum and there’s no one that can stop me.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The other day in the comments someone asked that I give some pairings for my first two rounds of the 2011 fantasy baseball drafts. I was going to do this anyway (you’re not the boss of me!), but sometimes I need a gentle nudge in the right direction.Please, blog, may I have some more?

I’m a pretty harsh critic of Razzball, but occasionally we’ll post things that even I feel are extremely helpful. Usually these are done by other people for our site. One of those things was the Fantasy Baseball War Room. Another helpful thingie-ma-whosie is the 2011 fantasy baseball tiers, brought to you by regular commenter and all-around solid F.O.R., VinWins.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Chicks dig ‘em, fans love to throw ’em back and pitchers despise them. Home runs kill a pitcher and can make his numbers, that would normally be decent and fun around children, look ugly and sad. James Shields was killed last year.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Orlando Cabrera taxied into Cleveland yesterday. Does Cleveland’s middle infield of Orlando and Asdrubal remind anyone else of an embarrassing moment at Epcot that I blamed on a 5-year-old? Probably just me. Hopefully not too many mixed leaguers are doing handstands over this news.Please, blog, may I have some more?

No one carries two catchers in one catcher leagues. If you do, you probably suffer from mushy brain. There’s a cure for that, stop reading ESPN’s fantasy baseball advice. So in 12 team fantasy baseball leagues, you have 10 to 15 catchers at any time to choose from off of waivers.Please, blog, may I have some more?
