We’re back with the Razzball Baseball Pod – this week’s episode brought to you by Chris Davis‘s brand of Adderall… On today’s show we talk Asian carnival food delights, crazy power binges at Coors Field, and play another edition of Higher/Lower. Emphasis on higher! We also talk some pitchers who could be late-round sleepers in 2016 and how this latest injury to Giancarlo Stanton impacts next year’s first round of fantasy drafts. September means bring the crazy! Here’s the latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yes, the Razzball Baseball Podcast is back with me back at the helm (Helm to 108!) after the wedding and honeymoon, with hands down our best Pod on the year! We got to chat with JT Thompson, the Founder and Chairman of The Hip Hop Hall of Fame about the legends of Hip Hop and the soon-to-be-opened New York City Museum. Grey tried his best to ask the hard questions just to get hired as a tour guide! We also talk tons of baseball including the power binges of my Brewers (Domingo Santana and Khris Davis), where Jake Arrieta will rank next year, and play another edition of Higher/Lower. Now with even more of Grey’s game show theme music! Here’s the latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:Please, blog, may I have some more?
And it wasn’t as dark as I expected. A little more mathy and computery I suppose… then again, I don’t really understand that stuff any how, so it might as well be dark and wizardry. If you hadn’t guessed from the title, Rudy joined me on the Pod to go over baseball thing-a-ma-jigs. We touched on the Mike Trout and Bryce Harper conundrum that Grey and I discussed last week, the future of Erasmo Ramirez and Jackie Bradley Jr., and made sure to complain a bit about my Padres and Hanley Ramirez’s defensive prowess. In that he has none. Dee Gordon and Billy Hamilton were touched on, and, as the title suggests, I went into the mind of Rudy to explore how Razzball’s DFSbot had it’s most accurate month in July and how exactly these tools can help win your leagues. We winded down the show talking about how Grey, Rudy, and myself are doing in all the expert leagues we are partaking in this year (Grey and Rudy in Tout, LABR, NFBC, CBS AL-Only, and my team in the CBS Auction.)
J.B. and Grey make their return next week, so until then, enjoy the show!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, if you like a podcast that talks about everything, then this is the show for you. Grey and I cover (takes a deep breath) J.B.’s impending wedding, the wonders of Philadelphia and New Jersey, segues (both the transitional definition and actual mobility device), the new movie: Straight Outta Compton, micro-ing stuff, Fantasy Football RCL’s opening up soon, and our mothers. Somewhere in between all of those things, yes, I can confirm, baseball was talked about. A little. Alright, a lot, let’s just say we fit everything AND the proverbial kitchen sink in this shin dig, including on where Bryce Harper stands compared to Mike Trout for next season, Michael Taylor and Billy Hamilton’s batting averages and the toll they take on their counting stats, Alex Wood’s struggles this year, and some tips on how to close the gap or stay atop the standings as the baseball season goes into it’s last month. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Razzball Podcast hath return, and on this week’s Pod we talk Jose Fernandez‘s shoulder, Joe Ross and the Nationals’ rotation, and my wedding and honeymoon where Grey gets mad personal. Hey Grey, this is a fantasy baseball podcast, not sexual healing with Lizzy Caplan! I guess my intro flub confused him… We then play another round of higher/lower, discuss where Carlos Correa and Manny Machado will be ranked for 2016, and a shocking run from an over-the-hill starting pitcher. Hint, he has no elbow ligaments! Here’s the latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Razzball Podcast is back, this week with a major peek behind our proverbial curtain! Man we had a crazy record day with Windows 10 bouncing around some settings in the Razzball Podcasting studio, Grey putting out fires to keep Razzball running, and a bajillion trades to try and get through… On today’s show we catch up on all of the trade deadline deals, changes to bullpens, and hot performers from the last week including Adam Eaton and Aaron Hicks. Now with more Grey rapping! Here’s the latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:Please, blog, may I have some more?
A bonus edition of the Razzball Pod is here – well – bonus as in we brought the length this week! I don’t know about the girth… Don’t ask me about girth… On today’s show we talk Scott Kazmir and Johnny Cueto‘s new teams (yes, to Grey’s chagrin in that order), Preston Tucker staying hot, and if Grey puts any credence on splits. Hint – Grey isn’t flexible at all! We then play another edition of higher/lower, discuss Cole Hamels‘ no-no, and A Rod hitting another bajillion homers. Plus some extra Grey singing! I have no idea what song that was… Here’s the latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Second half Podcasts, wooooo! Grey and I catch up after his All-Star Break trip to Seattle to talk the remaining prospects Aaron Nola and Kyle Schwarber getting called up, Grey’s hatred of Mitch Moreland, and a surprise pitcher available nearly everywhere in 10 or 12 team leagues that we both like. Shocker! Grey picked him up while I read him the availability %… Pickup number 245! Seriously. We then play a little Price is Right higher/lower, and discuss a few hitters with multi-HR games over the weekend. I’m sorry in advance for this Podcast, residents of Seattle!

The Razzball Pod is back, I’m back, BABY WE GOT BACK! I survived the bachelor party with just enough time/remaining brain cells to catch up with Grey on his second half buy lows and first half fantasy MVPs. No, one wasn’t Joe Blanton! I then run quiz Grey on some stats trivia, including some surprising league leaders. I love that Grey drops a “reading USA Today” reference. Nice one gramps!

In today’s Podcast, the usual host, what’s-his-face, ah yes, JB Gilpin went MIA in the streets of Philly where he apparently got married, or had a bachelor party, or did something. Who knows? Actually, Grey does, as we went over the fact that Philadelphia is the jewel of the United States. Miguel Cabrera was also mentioned, and I just want to establish, at this point, injuries to star players (including George Springer) should convince you all to check out that atheism thing. Grey and I also went over Robinson Cano and his struggles, along with some strategies on how to catch up in the standings as we reach the All-Star Break. And in a change of a pace for the Baseball Podcast (and what is tradition over at the Fantasy Football Podcast) Grey and I went off-topic a little to talk a bit about the first two episodes of True Detective, Season 2, and had a couple things to say about the Game of Thrones finale. If you don’t want the spoilers, end the show at the 44:50 mark. Otherwise, enjoy the pod! (JB will return next week!)Please, blog, may I have some more?
