We’re a little over the halfway mark in baseball so why not check in on our leagues…

First up, the Fantasy Razzball League. Jay – a Razzball commenter – is ahead of a pack which includes 30 bloggers and 50 other participants. The rest of the top five are Mike Podhorzer from FantasyPros911 (who is overdue for a league update in our NL-only league), Jonathan Halket of The Hardball Times Fantasy Focus, our own Grey Albright and Razzball commenter Freak in 5th. I’m in 7th place and it’s going to take a ridiculous 2nd half to try and defend my Fantasy Razzball title from last year.

In our Razzball Commenter leagues, there’s a 3-way battle for first with Anthony, Mowses, and an unnamed entry whose team goes by ‘Tijuana Two Step’. All three are above 100 points in their 12 team leagues which is pretty damn impressive. The craziest part is that Anthony and Tijuana are in the same league with the next team nearly 30 points out. The team known as “I said You’ve Got No Game’ is in 4th followed closely with Rhymenocerous (no sign of Hiphoppotamus), PWNightmare, ThirdandKing, and Doc.

Here are a few blogger shoutouts for those that are still battling in the Fantasy Razzball league:

R.J. White from the Fantasy Baseball Cafe is just outside the Top 10. For those unfamiliar with the Cafe, it’s full of lively debate and the perfect place to take a date if your date is your right hand. I personally like the brick wall on the home page – makes me feel like I’m at some 80’s comedy joint like the Chuckle Shack or Giggles.

The Fantasy Baseball Junkie is lurking just outside the Top 20 – like a sugar junkie loiters in the back of a Dunkin’ Donuts when they chuck the old batch. The Junkie has some good advice and definitely showed some prescience predicting Nyjer Morgan and Scott Hairston would be traded only a couple days before they did.

    I had it up to 116 at one point a few weeks ago. Cant wait for those coupons. They will come in handy in this recession.

    I’m stuck with the disappointing and now-injured Geovany Soto. Is it a no-brainer to trade Huston Street for Matt Wieters? What are expectations for Wieters the rest of the way? My alternative at C is Yadier Molina’s corpse.

    Thanks in advance.

  3. @Eric H.: I’d support that trade, given that Street might wind up a set-up man elsewhere, i.e. useless.

    I also own Wieters and I think he’ll have a good second half.*

    *this statement sprinkled with hope!

  4. Damn, Jay is killing it.

  5. A recommendation to all — Go on the Wrigley Field tour if you get a chance.

    It was damn sweet stepping on the field and going into the dugouts.

    Best place on earth.

    @Freak: My roommate went on the tour today too. He’s a ginger and a loud talker. Ring a bell?

    @cws05nuts: They have ~10 tours a day. Don’t remember seeing any redheads in my group.

  15. Yeahhh, I have been lazy with the updates, but I was away on business early this week, so that’s this week’s excuse. And of course you want an update coz you’re in first! The standings though would mean a little more to me if my 5 (yes, FIVE) roster moves from last week were actually made retroactively. I ended up with 2 empty roster spots coz of how screwed up things are.

    Anyone else find it funny that I actually know Razzball league leader Jay? He is my brother’s good friend and he continually reminds me that he is beating me. Hopefully that won’t last much longer.

  16. @Mike Podhorzer: Damn right I want an update b/c I’m in first. Who knows whether it’ll last. It shouldn’t be this hard with assigning free agents. Who are the jokers running this league?

    Small world re: you and Jay.

    Hey Michael…I am beating you

    In all seriousness, I have gotten very lucky. Despite demotions from Schaefer and Burriss, My hitting has continued to be bad and my pitching has been even worse. Hopefully I can continue it.
