REL baseball logo newNearing the break! Unlike the lunacy of MLB front offices, teams in the REL have been buying and selling in rebuilds and postseason aspirations since the first few weeks. I still don’t understand why rebuild teams in real life don’t start trading guys right away! I’m mostly mad the Brewers didn’t sell Chris Carter when I did in the REL… Why I should be their GM! Not some nerd who played Rotisserie baseball at Harvard

Nothing too huge in the standings, with the Nats still steamrolling the NL, but at least my Brewers gave em a 0-1 loss when I saw them play on July 4th! The AL is much more interesting, with the Blue Jays perched atop the standings. The Orange Birds and The Tribe both are within striking distance, while co-commish Slim has pushed the Astros into contention. With all their younguns, this should be quite the race! Here’s how week 14 went down in the 2016 REL League:

REL baseball logo newAnother week is in the books in the Razzball Elite League, as we’re right at the halfway point through the first REL season. Hard to believe! Two teams are fighting for World Series appearances to become the fabled inaugural REL champ, and after ceding the top spot last week, The Orange Birds reclaimed their throne over the Blue Jays in an epic battle of the birds in the AL. The Aviary League! Bada bing. I have dad jokes! In the NL, the Nationals continue to dominate, with the San Fran Giants still clipping at the Cubs heels [paws] jostling for second place. Here’s how week 13 went down in the 2016 REL League, plus a look-in at the REL 2 League with how it’s shaping up:

REL baseball logo newAfter seemingly 12 weeks of status quo, we finally have a new leader in one of our REL divisions! The Toronto Blue Jays hot off a streaking week 11 took the AL lead by 1.5 Pts following a 5-point surge last night. Right in time for the weekly update! The Blue Jays offense has been red hot, so this massive streak the past few weeks makes sense.

Over on the NL side, the Nats continue to dominate with the Cubs starting to sag a bit behind. Got a few teams still in this race! Here’s how week 12 went down in the 2016 REL League:

REL baseball logo newThe REL post is back, and we’ve got a team streaking!  Unfortunately they’re streaking in Canada, which is only safe for nudity 1-2 months out of the year.  Or else things might freeze off!  It’s like that time when you sit your kids down to watch Frozen, except you rented the one where those moron college kids get stuck on a ski lift…

The NL remains the Nats league to lose creating a little distance from the Cubs, but with a week-long offensivee outburst, look out for the Blue Jays!  They’re clipping on the Orange Birds’ heals (er, ummmm, talons) for the top spot in the AL.  Here’s how week 11 went down in the 2016 REL League:

REL baseball logo newWe’re back with the REL updates!  I know what you’re thinking, “blah-ty blah, JB’s vanity league, blah-ty blah.”  Well, you’re right!  But we have two really competitive leagues with a lot of great discussion and some very interesting trades going down – things I haven’t seen anything close to in other leagues.  My goal will be to make the REL rules the most common fantasy league out there!  OK, well, ain’t no one gonna wanna play in a league where Andy Wilkins is owned, but whatever!

Despite missing last week whilst I was on vacay, there’s really not too much of a change with our frontrunners, as the I-95 corridor continues to reign terror on the league.  The Nats have an astounding 135.5 roto points out of a possible 150 in the NL, and the Orioles have moved to a 19 point lead in the AL.  It’s time to revolt against the overlords in (and around) our Nation’s capital!  Here’s how weeks 9 and 10 went down in the 2016 REL League:

REL baseball logo newAnother week is in the books in the great fantasy experiment that is the REL.  Other great fantasy experiments: Tout Wars, Disney World, having Grey dress up as Princess Leia in a bikini —  Oops, too far!

Really not all that much has changed, with the Nats and Cubs still the titans of the NL and the Orange Birds continuing their dominance over the AL.  At least in the AL there looks to be a lot of competition at the top, vs. the race for the league cellar in the NL.  #TheTankingIsReal!  Here’s how week eight went down in the 2016 REL League, plus a look-in at the REL 2 League, with how it’s shaping up:

REL baseball logo newBREAKING NEWS! We have an REL franchise for sale by the owner. Unfortunately, the owner of the KANSAS CITY ROYALS is ready to step down from ownership of the team, and we need someone out there in Razzball Nation who is interested in joining the great social experiment that is the REL. Now, this is a paid league, so the fee for buying the team is pretty high with how baseball has grown in popularity and all our TV deals. It’s gonna be $25. League fees are $50 for each season, so you’ll be paying 1/2 price this year to take over, and mostly it’s just to ensure we get a serious owner. Then it’s $50 every additional year. To see a quick recap on how the league works, you can check out the Cliff’s Notes in the league launch post.

First commenter who says they want the Royals, gets em. Just let me know if the email is good to contact you through the email you comment on, or give me an email to reach out to ya. I’ll then forward you the rules and swap you over to own the team! Please only take over the team if you intend on staying with the dynasty as long as possible!

To our standings, the Nats/Cubs continue to rock the NL with the Orange Birds still stooping over the AL. We had two MONSTER buys – one in each league – on the FAAB market this week as well. $92 in FAAB in two moves – gone! Here’s how week seven went down in the 2016 REL League:

REL baseball logo newI’m going to rename this season the “Fury” year. As in, it’s a full-blown tank for me! What a good movie… Anyway, the REL keeps trucking along with some big FAAB buys in the AL that is still being dominated by the Orange Birds. Bird of Prey! Although the pair of Sox teams are clippin’ at their talons… In the NL, it’s all Nats and Cubs with the Nats getting 20 Ks from one player last night. Yeesh. Here’s how week six went down in the 2016 REL League:

REL baseball logo newHappy Cinco De Mayo!  I certainly know I’ll be drinking, as my rebuilding Brewers continue to have pitching numbers go down the drain like after a great relief following 5 margaritas.   And I certainly know the co-owners of the Nats are drinking heavy today too!  The Nationals are obliterating the NL league, accentuated by a 13-2 drubbing of the Royals in interleague play yesterday afternoon.  On the AL side, it’s still the Orange Birds’ show as they’ve been the hunted all year long.  Somebody break up this powerhouse on the I-95 corridor!  Here’s how week five went down in the 2016 REL League:

REL baseball logo newA month is in the books!  We’ve made it [mostly] through April in our inaugural season without too many issues in our rules-set, while amending our constitution with a few new minor rules as we go along.  It’s been awesome starting up a complex league and figuring out what rules need to be tweaked as we go with feedback from everyone!  In the standings, the Cubs/Nats rivalry up top looks like the easy front-runners to win the NL, with the Cubs a mere 0.5 Pts in the lead.  In the AL, the Orioles keep on trucking, but I’ve been impressed with the run by the Indians, who have moved into a strong second place.  Here’s how week four has gone down in the 2016 REL League, plus a look-in at the REL 2 League with how it’s shaping up:
