Inspired by Seattle’s Doug Fister-Adam Moore battery, we’ve compiled a list of pitcher-batter combinations that, at their worst, make us wincingly smile like a corny Jay Leno weddings segment and, at their best, make us laugh like Jay Leno’s audience does at the aforementioned segment.Please, blog, may I have some more?

I’m participating in one NL-only and one AL-only league this year. I already covered the AL-only draft – this post covers the NL-only one.
This 12 team NL expert league is hosted by our friends over at KFFL - named, of course, after the Kentucky Flag Football League that won $1 in an antitrust suit with the NFL when the judge realized that a game in which Derby jockeys play with a football coated in the Colonel’s finger-licking grease is awesome.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Like many of you, I cut my fantasy baseball teeth on snake-drafting 10-12 team mixed leagues.* But I’ve found that, to paraphrase Spinal Tap, the looser the league’s Free Agent waistband, the deeper the quicksand I get into. I’d lose a closer to injury only to find that some joker on the West Coast picked up the replacement while I was sleeping. I’d stubbornly stick with a lemon of a player through end of May while other teams spackled their roster holes with the breakout stars of the year (e.g, Quentin and Ludwick in 2008, Zobrist in 2009)
*Actually, Grey and I started duking it out in ESPN auto-drafting leagues and waking up the next morning to find 4 shortstops or 3 catchers on our squads.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Wondering what the ‘experts’ think about Colby Lewis – aka the biggest American phenom to appreciate its value in Japan since Cecil Fielder and Cheap Trick? Should you expect a Cecil Fielder-sized ERA or will he surrender few enough runs and baserunners that you’ll want to want him?Please, blog, may I have some more?
While we at Razzball are content toiling within the modest confines of fantasy baseball blogdom, we occasionally like to flex our journalistic muscles and take on a challenging interview. (Click here for our interview archive.) Sometimes that’s not enough of a challenge and we answer for our interview subject. Luckily, our subject today – Morgan Ensberg – is a blogger himself and took care of his end of the interview. His blog is one of my two favorite ex-player blogs along with Brent Mayne‘s blog. Don’t believe me? See it for yourself: Morgan Ensberg’s Baseball IQ. His Twitter feed can be found here.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We at Razzball realize that exporting our views across the country has damaging consequences on the blogosphere. To help make amends, we are reaching out to leading team blogs and featuring their locally blogged answers to pressing 2010 fantasy baseball questions regarding their team.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The worlds of baseball and business have many similarities – money, dealing with the press, pleasing customers, etc. – but few jobs translate as well between both as the role of Manager.
Bruce Bochy, one of the longest tenured baseball managers (entering his 16th year in 2010) and the career leader in home runs by a player born in France, understands these parallels and has partnered with Ray Kroc Jr.Please, blog, may I have some more?
