Not even fantasy baseball is safe from the Robot Revolution, but fear not, it is situations like this that Razzball has a standing militia on call, The Crab Army. Lord Tehol Beddict is not your true enemy! We must all unite and take aim at the bots! Or, we can just give up and admit that Rudy’s Streaming Tools are far superior to human intellect. Grey and I bring on Razzball’s own MattTruss to discuss the robot takeover and try to make sense of the entire thing. We also talk about how last week’s Razzball Only FantasyDraft Contest was our most competitive yet. Congrats to “therizzo” for taking home first place, and make sure to get in on the fun by JOINING THIS WEEK’S CONTEST. Between all the robot talk, we do manage to squeeze in some fantasy baseball analysis, as we discuss just how good Alex Wood and Jose Berrios are, along with the buy low merits of Masahiro Tanaka, Rougned Odor, Jonathan Villar, and Alex Bregman. It’s the latest edition of the Razzball Fantasy Baseball Podcast.

    “Would – You – Pick – Up – Amed – Rosario?”

    Great stuff this week, Halp. There was definitely some WarGames in Grey’s robot. Now that’s a movie they could reboot, right? I mean, the original was damn near perfect (especially the chilling opening scene with John Spencer and Michael Madsen here: https://youtu.be/ReJ3RltihME I get goosebumps watching that) but that’s not stopping people. How about a WarGames based on fantasy baseball? Or how about a documentary about the robot team that’s winning the RCL. Who wouldn’t watch that?!

    Last week was so bad my replacement for Story (Cozart) also got hurt. Going to try Galvis this week I guess. Hope your teams are doing better!

      @JakeTPE: haha … Thanks, Jake. A Razzball Mockumentary! Genius. Maybe one day …

      And some of my teams are really beat up too, especially with this 10 day DL stuff

    It’s hard to listen the Grey’s high pitched squeal as it is, and now you mix in a high pitched Grey Robot?

    Can we have the robot leading the RCLs invent a voice filter for Robot Grey?

        @The Great Knoche: hahah … not sure the budget for the podcast includes a voice modulator made by a self learning robot. I’ll ask Rudy what he can come up with though. And thanks!

        • The Great Knoche says:

          @Halp: Just remind Rudy he can use the filter anytime he talks to Grey. Should pay for itself.

      I was typing up my replies into a Speak n Spell, that was not my voice. This comment reply is being read in a robot voice too. Thank you.

    I’m in that league with the robot. It’s my best RCL league team, and I haven’t got a chance!

        @Grey: dude, he does so many add/drops every day, it’s just nuts! Been hovering between second and third the whole time and he’s just so far ahead in every pitching stat, especially. We need that robot to get a damn job and some responsibilities, Grey!
        Started listening to the podcast and your crazy robot voice, and I’m immediately thinking–that bastard with the robot–he’s winning everything?!?!

      • Mike in Busan says:

        @Grey: maybe next time go full Big Bang Theory and get Stephen Hawking on the podcast?

          @Mike in Busan: Grey’s robot voice mixed with Rudy’s robots are turning out to make Razzball’s greatest super villain ever. The heros have become the villains!

    I like Mike Mahers writing game…but? I love your criticisms

      @J-FOH: My thoughts exactly. Have to take Harper

        @Halp: because as we all know twitter is a great source of analysis.

        BTW, Tehol is the enemy of the crab army. Those snappy guys will defend Admiral lifshitz to the bitter end. And I for one will not only have Ralph’s back but my own from the malibu’s most wanted of fantasy baseball.

              @J-FOH: I’d watch a J-FOH vs. Tehol MMA fight

                @Halp: as much as we want to see this the ralph vs tehol would be pay per view worthy. There is so much public feuding with those two

            A crab army seems to listen to a General more than a President

      Quote of the podcast was Halp super bluntly stating:

      “I mean, I’d prefer Bryce Harper.”

      Haha

    Why does Grey’s robot voice sound like a Borat robot?

      @RObby rob: haha, I can’t speak on Grey’s inspiration for that performance

  8. Schmohawks Bob says:

    I ended up playing in a league called Take On M@ 3 with one of the robots. It’s not set up to meet the RCL standards (only 1 DL spot, 200 start limit) so it shouldn’t be considered for the championship. Not really that happy to be the snitch, but fair is fair.

    • Matthew Sullivan says:
      (link)

      @Schmohawks Bob:

      Hey, you’re right. I think all of us in the league realized that there was only one DL slot instead of two, but I hadn’t noticed the 200 start limit.

      • Schmohawks Bob says:
        (link)

        @Matthew Sullivan: With the start limit up 20 more than normal, it rewards the extreme streaming the robot is able to do. I wonder if the other robot leagues have incorrect settings as well.

        • Halp

          Halp says:
          (link)

          @Schmohawks Bob: I wonder if the robots were responsible for this small but crucial difference? But in all seriousness, yea, seems like something that should be taken into account on the main standings

        • Matthew Sullivan says:
          (link)

          @Schmohawks Bob: Nah, the other leagues that the bots are in are all standard RCL leagues.
