Back in the pre-season, we launched a new player rater methodology called Point Shares to estimate fantasy baseball player value.   There aren’t a lot of Player Raters to be found other than ESPN (Y! and CBSSports.com don’t have ones) but we feel ours is better because it factors in variables like a player’s position (e.g., Hanley Ramirez’s 33 HR is worth more than David Wright’s) and the point totals actually represent something.

While away, my fantasy teams were left to fare on their own. Please, blog, may I have some more?

It’s been a long time since we showed the Razzball Standings – over 6 weeks to be exact (see here for the June 14th standings).

Grey has made it all the way to 1st place and has a 9 point lead on the pack – despite being 200 AB below the prorated AB minimum of 3530 (pro-rated 5200) and having to accept the penalty. Please, blog, may I have some more?
