What is there left to say at this point of the season? Many of the leagues have been won long ago. I know there are a few tight races left, and if you are in one of them, then a tip of the cap to you. By this time next week, we will be crowning a new grand champion and sending out the cool trophy to them as a way of saying thank you for kicking all of our a$&#%. It’s pretty neat to see this all unfold from a behind the scenes perspective. Last year, I finished near the top and paid little attention to anyone else, but this year, I get a ringside seat into the battles for supremacy. This is mostly due in part to me sucking it like quad-A club across the board. But, like I tell myself every year, you have all offseason to beat yourself up and get ready for a fresh start next year. I usually signal January Grey as my time to put down the bottle, get it together, and start loving this game again. In case you top-10 teams have forgotten, this is what you are playing for…Please, blog, may I have some more?

This is a different kind of disaster my friends. And trust me, here in the metro area, we’ve suffered many disasters. Did you know about Snowmageddon in 2010? Sure, what we experienced during that time was what New England calls ‘any Friday night in February’, but we don’t live up in the northeast, do we? No, we’re more civilized and cultured and decided to live in a humid mid-atlantic swamp, with a cesspool of slime, filth, and trash. And that’s just K street. Don’t even get me started about the state of the Potomac river. As an added bonus, in 2011, there was the Earth quakepocolypse, where a 5.8 shaker did irreparable harm to my lawn chair. And I’ll tell you this, no one called in off-shore drillers, trained as astronauts, like they should have to save us. Well, that time is now. With Francisco Rodriguez leading the universe in saves AND father in-law abuse, the world truly is on the precipice of disaster. Global warming? Pfft, that ain’t nothin’ compared to the state of our fantasy teams. With 87% of the MLB DL-eligible, as stated here by your’s truly, we are now covering another harsh reality in this lede… the era of closers as we know it has ended. Thanks Obama! Rod Beck… hug me. Actually, don’t get near me. You smell like a week-old hot dog and the great depression…Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Fantasy Razzball Master League Standings went up on Saturday. You can access them here and via the link in the ‘Razzball Commenter Leagues’ section in the left sidebar.
Early congrats to the owner of team Bill Bergen c. 1909 (aka commenter ‘Tom’) who has the early lead. Please, blog, may I have some more?Please, blog, may I have some more?
An optimist once said, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” It was so inspiring that no one followed up with the relevant question, “Did life also give me sugar because, otherwise, this lemonade is going to taste like crap?”
There are plenty of lemons in baseball*. Please, blog, may I have some more?Please, blog, may I have some more?
We here at Razzball take a perverse, Nelson Muntzian joy in pointing out the failures and shortcomings in fantasy baseball and baseball in general – whether it be identifying overrated players (see Grey’s Fantasy Schmohawk series), highlighting historically bad seasons (see my Historical Spotlight series), or just talking general smack about players in our daily roundups. Please, blog, may I have some more?Please, blog, may I have some more?
This post goes out to all you lovely surfers participating in one of our leagues. Going forward, we’ll have weekly updates (on Sunday nights) to the Master Standings and we’ll note the ‘last updated’ date on the standings page. The standings links are available in the top left of our page (under Razzball Leagues). Please, blog, may I have some more?Please, blog, may I have some more?
