Don’t worry, our blunders are still pretty entertaining!  Due to some last-second scheduling, our joke about the Oscars at the beginning became painfully true for us as well, as we jacked around the date and put the Pod up today!  Eh, well, it’s still early Spring, we got time before the season!  On today’s show, we recap some news from Spring like Anthony DeSclafani‘s elbow, Danny Salazar‘s great debut, and Max Scherzer‘s knuckle.  Then to the meat n potatoes – we preview Grey’s 1B and 2B rankings, with a light smattering of a C preview as well!  Follow along with the ranks found here, and let us know your additional thoughts in the comments.  Hopefully you can bring in more Brewers discussion, like Grey kept doing!  Here’s the latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:

    Looking forward!

    What do you think of the likelihood Keon Broxton actually hits in the 2 hole (hehe) this season? Would be VERY exciting – it’s a bit of a lazy comparison, but I like Keon as the best bet to go “V.I.L.L.A.R.” (H.A.M.?) on 2017 (though with a bit less steals and a bit more HR).

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Hah, well Counsell said as much the other day, I think there’s a strong possibility! Completely agree, a few less steals, more HR… And he’s looked healthy in Spring after breaking his wirst. Fun sleeper for sure

        @JB Gilpin: Esp in OBP leagues! (him and now-everyday Joc Pederson are my two sleepers in those)

            @JB Gilpin: btw, would love to hear your guys’ thoughts on Springer apparently saying that he only plans to steal “when the situation calls for it” in 2017 due to their stacked lineup. (That’s pretty much the last thing I wanted to hear him say)

              @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Ugh yeah, Slim last year who owns REL Astros watches a lot of them, and said Springer kept lessening and lessening his lead through the year. Yeah, I think sub 10 steals for sure

    I think I would’ve went with “Cut him like a hot dog or hamburger?”

        Hot dog or hamburger is classic “JB and Grey!”

    Duuuude, it’s EncarNAcion, not Encarcion. Oh Grey.

      That’s one too many syllables for lil ol me!

        @Grey: It’s hilarious how consistent you are with the mispronunciation.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Usually if I hear it said right I’m okay, though Melancon is just too much — that’s a hard C, I’m sorry

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            @Grey: I used to pronounce it Melon-cone for years before I heard it pronounced. Threw my world upside down.

              Grey says:

              There’s no way it’s Mel-an-sin — he’s just messing with us

                @Cram It: @Grey: It’s all just a long inside joke with the Melancons!

                @Grey: yeah it’s melon-con for me and always has been.

                mezousa is the best one.

          @JB Gilpin: @Jensen: Hah yeah I ran by that deal before he took over the team… :/ At least Villar stayed strong

    Question for next podcast: More likely to breakout: Jorge Soler or Jose Peraza. The hype on Peraza keeps building & I bought all the hype on Soler in years past.
