Who is Jose Reyes — your great auntie who huffs and puffs to the mailbox in hopes the Cake of the Month Club package arrived? Does he have dishpan hands and varicose veins? Maybe Reyes overdosed on Mr. Burns’s nerve tonic like Ken Griffey Jr.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This post is not meant to scream fire in the theater of Razzball. I’m not saying don’t draft these guys. I’m not unfriending them. (I would hide all of their stupid Mafia Wars updates. Okay, quick rant, I have a friend who emailed everyone that he just had a kid.Please, blog, may I have some more?
What’s quirkier than a relief pitcher? I’ll tell you what: a stubborn 3-legged beagle. Success as a set-up reliever is so overlooked in real life baseball as well as fake life baseball. These guys are weird; they have crazy superstitions, wear bass-ackwards numbers, and have their own theme music.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The murmurs of Heath Bell getting traded to another team by July are getting louder. (BTW, I love the word murmurs. I really wanted the survivors on Lost to call The Others, The Murmurs. Wouldn’t that have been awesome?! Okay, maybe me.) Prepare for a dozen or so posts titled, “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” at some of our weak sister sites.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Okay, who put Jerry Blevins 498th? He’s the greatest LOOGY of all-time… OF ALL-TIME. Kanye shrug. We’re using Yahoo for our Fantasy Razzball leagues. (You can win a mother-bleepin’ hot tub; are you kidding me? Seriously. Yes, I brought out the one word, “Seriously,” sentence, then brought out the expository sentence to mention I brought out the one word, “Seriously,” sentence.) Yahoo’s drafting and fantasy baseball team setup-ma-whosies is fine.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Between the two middle infield positions, I tend to draft a 2nd baseman early and punt shortstop. This happens for a few reasons. 1) 2nd base has more talent. That’s right, I draft the deeper position earlier. Same reason I punt catchers and try to get a 1st baseman early.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The duality of man:
It’s all Peaches and Herb when you can get the best out of both worlds. Well, fantasy baseball wise that’s either “Martin Prado” good or “Jerry Hairston” awkward. For fantasy pitching, a guy doesn’t necessarily become more draftable based on dual position, but I’m here to “learn” you something about spot starting from the RP spot.Please, blog, may I have some more?
