The Master Standings are here!

It would be great if we can attach each team to a Razzball Commenter handle. Please fill out the below form so we can add your handle to the Master Standings page (note: you can also enter this for a leaguemate if you like).

Tennessee Mash (RCL 25) is our early leader with 110 points, followed by Playin’ The Field (Beef SAGNOF!) and The Fredsies (ECFBL). The Mash have been led offensively by Josh Hamilton, who has been a steal so far at pick #40. Earlier they had picked Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez, and Jay Bruce. Those 4 have hit .320 with 22 home runs and 73 RBI, and added 10 steals. After drafting Chase Utley in round 5, TM selected their first pitcher, David Price. 9th-round pick Gio Gonzalez has been stellar, with an ERA of 1.82 and WHIP under 1. In the last 9 rounds the Mash added Kenley Jansen, Aroldis Chapman, and Jonny Venters, who have contributed 6 wins, 2 saves, and 62 strikeouts, with an ERA of 1.02. Congratulations, Tennessee Mash!

League Toughness: Also, congratulations to RCL 9, the top league with an LCI of 105. League Competitive Index is based on the total stats for the whole league. The index page can be found here.  The points formula is: HR + SB + R/3 + RBI/3 + (H-.27*AB) + 2*W + 1.5 * SV + K / 5 + IP – (ER+H+BB/ 2).

Waiver Buzz: The Razzball nation was hopping Friday as everyone rushed to pick up new closer Scott Downs and freshly called up youngsters Mike Trout and Bryce Harper. Downs and Harper are 100% owned now, while Mike Trout is on waivers in 1 league.

Expert League: Mastersball Carey (Ryan Carey) continues to lead, but Rudy shot up to second place with a 19.5-point gain. Craig Kimbrel, Santiago Casilla, Zack Greinke and Brandon Morrow led Rudy to a pitching line of 65 K/6 wins/6 saves/2.08/1.20.

Trades: 9 more trades were processed this week, bringing the total to 51 involving 165 players. A 10-player swap in the ECFBL included Jose Reyes, Jose Bautista, Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday, Yovani Gallardo, and Jon Lester. Pujols was also traded in an 8-player deal in RCL 46. Hanley Ramirez and Clayton Kershaw were included in that transaction. Bryce Harper was used as a trade chip in The Dread Pirate Returns. He was dealt with Justin Morneau for Billy Butler. You can find all the trades in the fantasy baseball forums.

    Pls rank for tomorrow:

    Arroyo v CHC
    Cahill @ WAS
    Lilly @ COL
    Doubront v OAK

    • @EK, Doubront @ OAK is the only one that looks decent. Arroyo is HR-prone and you never know the way the wind is blowing in CHC. WAS offense has bee slumping but so has Cahill. I don’t trust anyone @COL.

    You should ask Grey on his last post. I’m no expert.

      @VinWins, neither am I but both my really crappy RCL teams are ahead of all of the experts teams, and I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

        @nyydj2, Ha! They can’t be that bad, then. Although, I think you are forgetting Mastersball Carey who is leading the Experts.

      @ryan, sounds like too much to me.

        @VinWins, too much…. especially if cuddyer’s got 2B eligibility. Jones has looked good, but I dont know if he keeps it up to the point he’d warrant those two players.

    VinWins – thanks, as always, for your great work. Always enjoy your breakdown. Although it was a bit embarrassing to see my club esconced in the 560 range. What is interesting is that the ‘Pert league has an underwhelming 98 league ratio. I guess at least one manager (Mack) has abandoned the league. However, it looks pretty bad, sort of like the blind teaching the blind…

      @Paulie Allnuts, Yeah, unfortunately, the league is not too important to some of them, making it just another league.
