Oh man, what a Podcast we have for you today! This is easily our Pulitzer prize edition! On today’s show we talk about some pitchers, some hitters, ya know, the fantasy thing, but this is all about our special guest Jose Canseco! With the green light to joke around with him and everything being on the table, Grey and I really dive deep into Canseco’s media exploits and get to know the man, the myth, the legend. We easily put together one of the best interviews in Podcast history! Here’s out latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast with Jose Canseco:

Ugh, ranking pitchers is so annoying sometimes! You like a guy, he sucks a little, you stop liking him, he then gets better… I’m changing this to monthly rankings here on out, dammit!

OK, rant over. Don’t worry, I’ll stick with the weekly ranks. But after buying into the Anthony DeSclafani hype in the pre-season, to taking him out of my ranks, to then rank him very aggressively when he got off the DL, only to see two meh starts including a rough one against the lowly Braves, and now DeSclafani is looking good again with that wicked slider has my panties bunchier than the chocolate in Buncha Crunch. I’m having a roller coaster of emotions! I feel like Yordano Ventura on the mound, I’m coming unhinged! I watched a good bit of DeSclafani’s first start off the DL hosting the A’s and he looked pretty good, but didn’t give it my 100% undivided attention. I think for my own sanity I needed to take a look with how he pitched yesterday afternoon against the Padres, to finally have a decision on this guy… Here’s how DeSclafani’s fourth start on the year went down:

REL baseball logo newAfter seemingly 12 weeks of status quo, we finally have a new leader in one of our REL divisions! The Toronto Blue Jays hot off a streaking week 11 took the AL lead by 1.5 Pts following a 5-point surge last night. Right in time for the weekly update! The Blue Jays offense has been red hot, so this massive streak the past few weeks makes sense.

Over on the NL side, the Nats continue to dominate with the Cubs starting to sag a bit behind. Got a few teams still in this race! Here’s how week 12 went down in the 2016 REL League:

Grey and I are back! On today’s show, JB grills Grey on some of his preseason calls that we had debates on including Jonathan Lucroy, Grey grills JB on an awful trade he made earlier this season, then Grey explains why his brain is getting grilled in 120 degree heat. Grey is Fear and Loathing in the California Desert! We also discuss some pitchers who had near no-hitters the past week, a very surprising velocity uptick from a very veteran pitcher, and catch up on the red hot Blue Jays offense. Stupid Google changed what the dance mix song was when I Googled “dance music” at the end too! Ugh, maybe it’s a sign Joe Ross just being OK lately is a sign of things to come… Here’s our latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:

I know, I know.  Most boring Pitcher Profile in the lauded history of the Pitcher Profiles…  But Tim Lincecum has been the talk of the town in some circles, that is, if the circle you’re in is at a retirement home…

I was hotly debating writing this week’s profile on the sexy new call-up Cody Reed, but legit decided to flip a coin to see who’s 2016 debut I would go with.  One side was Jennifer Lawrence and the other side Sir Laurence Olivier.  As in he’s old!  Wait, I don’t think he’s even alive…  Don’t fact check that…

It’s been several years since Old Tiny Tim has been fantasy relevant, and it’s only fitting that the reason why is a hip issue.  He shoulda pressed the Life Alert earlier!  But now he’s had the surgery, showed some flashes in his Minor League rehab games (7 inning 1-hitter with 8 Ks his last AAA start), and debuted for the Angels on Saturday afternoon.  Here’s how his 2016 debut went down going at the A’s:

REL baseball logo newThe REL post is back, and we’ve got a team streaking!  Unfortunately they’re streaking in Canada, which is only safe for nudity 1-2 months out of the year.  Or else things might freeze off!  It’s like that time when you sit your kids down to watch Frozen, except you rented the one where those moron college kids get stuck on a ski lift…

The NL remains the Nats league to lose creating a little distance from the Cubs, but with a week-long offensivee outburst, look out for the Blue Jays!  They’re clipping on the Orange Birds’ heals (er, ummmm, talons) for the top spot in the AL.  Here’s how week 11 went down in the 2016 REL League:

Jam-packed! Special edition! New segment! Cliche free! Well, this Podcast write-up surely isn’t cliche free, but we have an awesome podcast this morning! Our prospect guru Ralph Lifshitz joins us today to talk the MLB draft and profess his love for Kyle Lewis, then to some prospects that will impact redraft leagues like Alex Bregman, and finally a few deeper prospects to keep an eye for the future. I spoiled one of his favorite A ball pitchers he wanted to write about in his next post, my bad! Then of course Grey and I go through our normal shenanigans talking some hot pitchers, where Xander Bogaerts will rank next year, and some absolutely awesome segways if I don’t say so myself!

Bases haven’t been nearly full at all in Michael Fulmer‘s starts this past month!

After a rocky beginning to his Major League career, Fulmer has been absolutely on fire the past month, vaulting from “meh, another big prospect called up too early, schwatev” to “this guy is ROY!”  As in, Roy Campanella!  Wait, I don’t think he was a pitcher…

Featuring a huge fastball and an awesome beard, it’s getting tougher and tougher to not jump on board the Fulmer train on his incredible scoreless streak and 5 Ws in a row.  I usually write the intro before breaking down the start, but I worked a little out-of-sequence today.  Spoiler alert!  I’m so on board.  I’m trading in my “Mustache Rides – $0.25” shirt with Grey on it to “Beard Rides – $0.50” with Fulmer.  So without any more ado or facial hair-play, here’s how Fulmer looked yesterday in a dominating start against the Yanks:

REL baseball logo newWe’re back with the REL updates!  I know what you’re thinking, “blah-ty blah, JB’s vanity league, blah-ty blah.”  Well, you’re right!  But we have two really competitive leagues with a lot of great discussion and some very interesting trades going down – things I haven’t seen anything close to in other leagues.  My goal will be to make the REL rules the most common fantasy league out there!  OK, well, ain’t no one gonna wanna play in a league where Andy Wilkins is owned, but whatever!

Despite missing last week whilst I was on vacay, there’s really not too much of a change with our frontrunners, as the I-95 corridor continues to reign terror on the league.  The Nats have an astounding 135.5 roto points out of a possible 150 in the NL, and the Orioles have moved to a 19 point lead in the AL.  It’s time to revolt against the overlords in (and around) our Nation’s capital!  Here’s how weeks 9 and 10 went down in the 2016 REL League:

Wooooo, it’s good to be back! I’ve missed Grey’s laugh like you wouldn’t believe, and on today’s show we talk the James Shields‘ trade, solid pitching from Matt Shoemaker and Michael Fulmer, and how hot Jonathan Villar has been. Don’t get Grey and Rudy’s engines revved about ESPN player rater value with the overemphasis of steals! We also talk Joe Ross (obviously!), where Yu Darvish ranks ROS, and our thoughts on Julio Urias. Now with more techno music! Here’s our latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:
