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?

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

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?

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?
