The season is hitting its stride!  We’re still in the honeymoon phase, got a lot of hot-n-sexy still going to keep things spicy; more spicy than say, talking about how I rage quit in Words With Friends!  On today’s show, we talk hot starts from Jose Ramirez, Marcell Ozuna, and how Grey absolutely hates James Paxton.  Hates I say!  We then play another edition of FMK, and for our first time, take your listener comments on the Pod.  Thanks to everyone who left us a voicemail!  You now can join the Pod by leaving us a dime at this link, and we’ll include as many as we can on the show.  Obviously as close to record time as you can, so bookmark the page and send us something over the weekend or Monday morning.  Don’t get Grey started on what day the Podcast is on though!  Here’s the latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:

  1. Speaking of Chris Shelton (on the podcast), once teams/scouts/pitchers start figuring out how to get him out, Thames’ numbers will start to fade ..like Shelton’s did 10 or so years ago after going crazy in April and into May. Verdict on Thames: Sell high

      @Fecal Matters: Sure if you can sell Thames for like a 3rd or 4th round pick, then sure! But his command of the strike zone looks great right now

      • Only time will tell. Thanks for the informative content.

          @Fecal Matters: Yeah for sure. My argument back for when I hear this “KBO is about as equivalent as AA” would be, “if someone in AA is hitting .350 with 40 homers and 120 RBI, everyone would be going gaga for them!” Hah

          • As we say here in Texas, “that’s a big 10-4, cowboy”

          • Pirates outfielder Starling Marte suspended 80 games for positive test of performance-enhancing drug

            Awesome ..I traded for him less than 24 hours ago

              @Fecal Matters: As we say here in north carolina, “thats some BULL shizz!” Yeah I have Marte on 2 teams. Well, now one. Dropped him in RCL. So annoying

    Good stuff guys! Ha, they fell off shit mountain lmao(Graveman and Finnegan).I really like McCullers too, but man KPax really seems to have come into his own, so I’m with ya JB, although it sounds like Grey likes him more than he wants to admit.

      @We Are Out Of Room: Hah thanks man, appreciate ya listening! Grey will come around on Kpax soon :)

        @JB Gilpin: So that Amir Garrett guy, yet another solid performance…for real or nah?

          @We Are Out Of Room: I think so! At least for a while, I said on the Pod I think he can start strong for a while until league adjusts

    Great stuff! I know you were on the T Skaggs wagon early on but kind of went back on him with your last rankings even after his performance on Sunday. In a full keeper league would u deal him for a guy like Lackey straight up or hold for a few more outings?

    Thanks!

      @Chud: Thanks man, appreciate ya dropping by! Yeah he looked awesome! I thought about raising him a little more, but want to see one more good start this week. Full keeper though, meh he’s still really young, I would hold Skaggs over Lackey

    why would he hate big game James?? He throws 97+ has a disgusting hook, and he went in the 150’s in most of my drafts.. if healthy hes a top 20 SP

      @Bye Felica: People need to stop calling him that. Shields has a 5.46 career postseason ERA. More like Meaningless Games James, amirite?

        • JashFath

          JashFath says:

          @JB Gilpin: Yeah. It is so well-known that ESPN and the MLB Network called him that regularly up until he turned into hot garbage last year. It’s just ironic because he crumbles in actual big games.

      @Bye Felica: it’s “big shame” for those in the know. and that was way too early for shields this year.

        @The Harrow: I think he was talking about Paxton in the 150s :)

        @JB Gilpin: A half connection. Which also describes my “matches” on Tinder, because they are usually with bots.

          @JashFath: Hah I am so fortunate I never did the online dating stuff. Someone showed me Tinder once and I was pretty sure it was ALL robots. Fembots.
