It’s been 5 years since Michael Lewis’s “Moneyball” hit the shelves – making Billy Beane, OBP, and Chad Bradford household names and challenging many of the long-held assumptions about baseball.
But the real game is played on the field and managed by those who wear the uniform. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Now that Juan Pierre has lost his starting job to Andre Ethier, one question hangs over the fantasy baseball community like the smog over Chavez Ravine: What will happen to Juan Pierre’s power numbers?
While the expected reduction in ABs will cut down on his RBI opportunities, we think the additional time off plus a newly discovered well of anger into which he can tap will inspire Pierre to surpass his 2006 career high in AB/HR of 226. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello, Joe all the way from Ireland here, yes believe it or not there are fantasy baseball addicts in this part of the world too, well there’s one anyway!
I just came across your site the other day and find it to be excellent. Please, blog, may I have some more?

Note: Besides providing advice and news on fantasy baseball, we at Razzball created and now sponsor a game where the goal is to manage a team and compile the worst stats. These Historical Spotlights honor those players who would’ve excelled in such a format. Please, blog, may I have some more?

Some random observations as I prep for 2 normal drafts and 1 Razzball draft in the next couple days…
Is there anything more fruitless than trying to make preseason trades? Unless someone did auto-drafts or accidentally picked a guy, we all picked our players for a reason. Please, blog, may I have some more?

I’m wondering why there’s such a huge gap between BaseballHQ’s value for Dunn and yours. HQ has him 72nd and your player rater has him 22nd for batters in mixed 12 team regular 5×5. HQ assigns $ values but I think it’s effectively the same thing.
We’ve got 8 of 10 slots filled in for our inaugural Fantasy Razzball league – where the basic objective is to compile the worst roster of MLB players. That’s right – the worst team.
The blogs set to participate are:
