Baseball is here – welcome to the grind!  We got prospect expert Mike to hop on the show to go over his Prospect Power Rankings and the post-apocalyptic wasteland that is his neighborhood street.  Quick honey, grab the taser!  Then Grey and I talk about the highs and lows from week one; number one high is the pitch of our cackle laughs and number one low is Grey’s B-side material on how he looks at Billy Hamilton‘s steal total.  Swayze fans, don’t listen to this one!

The season is here baby, wooooo!  Let’s get this noise goin’!  On today’s podcast, Grey and JB recap the final pieces of news before the season hits, but recorded before the Braves sold everything that wasn’t nailed down!  Speaking of nailing, we then recap our RCL Perts league draft where Grey nailed all his picks and JB didn’t get any action (story of my life in high school), picking last.  Nice guys finish last!  At least, that’s what I imagine the draft automator thinking when pulling that ish.  Then we go through The Official 2015 Razzball Picks with our seasonal calls, wrapping up with our World Series picks.  Sky, before you listen, know that I love you…  Here’s the opening day edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:

We’re going Meta on the Razzball Pod!  Well, not really at all, I mean did you read the title?!  Grey and I chat about our thoughts on social media and the little bit of trouble it might cost Jared Cosart, go over the news from Spring across the MLB including the scoreless 18 innings from Taijuan Walker, then our kit-and-caboodle (does that mean main segment?): our favorite un-sexy picks this year.  Looking at you Aramis Ramirez!  Grey then laughs at me and accuses me of Brewers Goggles.  If only he knew how sexy I look in rec specs in the Saturday afternoon YMCA pickup hoops game!  I’m like Kurt Rambis mixed with Milton from Office Space.  Here’s the hot-off-the-presses edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:

So many guests, so little time!  We’ve got a busier-dan-all-hell Podcast with John Rotondo, the co-founder of RotoDerby.com, catching us up on their version of the fantasy game, playing a season-long HR derby format.  If only this was going in the mid-90s!  Gimme Bonds and Sosa!  Then our overlord Grey hops on and shakes his moneymaker, including at least 20 mentions of a baked good.  We chat up every position with a guy ending up on most of our teams and a player we’re avoiding.  Then I finally get to chat with Rudy as he runs through all of the baller improvements to the Razzball tools including the Streamonator, Hittertron, and DFSBot.  Our tools are slowly becoming smarter than us!  Who am I kidding, that happened like 3 years ago… Here’s the new edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:

The Razzball Podcast is back!  On this week’s show, it starts on a downer, but we pull it through!  We then let Grey stroke his brilliance and explain why he zagged instead of zigged in his Tout Wars draft and JB learns about Grey’s open interpretation of player name pronunciations.  Don’t draft Castilio!  We then chat about some of the big notes from Spring over the past week, including Kris Bryant hitting a bajillion home runs.  None of them matter though!  Here’s the new edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:

We’ve got Grey on location in Arizona!  Grey fills us in about rolling with the Razzball crew in Spring Training, including Jack Full of Hate hoping to be Jack Full of Tristan Cockcroft!  Too far?  Probably!  But it’s early in Spring Training and I’m working on the full repertoire!   We then roll through all of the early Spring injuries including no Cy for Yu!  Then wrap up with a look at the noteworthy performances in the ultimate useless small sample of the first few games through Spring.  Here’s the new edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:

The Razzball Baseball Podcast is back!  From the dormant winter, we have returned Game of Thrones north-of-the-wall-style (wait, so are we zombies or hot Scottish redheads?) to bring the fantasy legend of Grey’s mustache back to the airwaves.  Grey and I will be your hosts for this season, with Rudy peppered in making our well-seasoned soup.  We’ll have the Pods out every Monday morning, and on today’s show we talk about Nick Capozzi’s sex-suggesting voice, why “other” fantasy experts lie to their families, and Grey’s omnipresent (probably incorrect adjective use) love for Francisco Liriano.  Here’s the first Razzball Baseball Podcast of 2015:

On today’s podcast, Nick recounts the ups and downs of his journey across ‘Murica. If Nick was doing this journey to collect a Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes, we’d all say he was crazy, Alexander Payne would film it and Bruce Dern would play Nick to great critical acclaim. In reality, Nick’s doing it for a podcast. This isn’t crazier?! Get Payne on the hotline, we got ourselves a sequel to Nebraska! “So, the year is 2014, and flying cars haven’t yet been invented. Instead, our lead, everyman, Nick, is in a van and driving from Canada to Arizona to do a podcast over the phone to save on international calling.” “You know, I was having lunch with James Toback the other day and he was looking for a project. Can we get Neve Campbell to play Nick in drag?” “It’s a new direction, but I like it!” Besides the cross-country shenanigans of Nick and his K-Mart mannequin he dressed up and named Blake, we talk about some players who are off to hot starts — hello, Dee Gordon! — and some players who are currently screwing la pooch — I hate you, Edwin Encarnacion! Also, mentioned are Adam Eaton, Grady Sizemore, Scott Kazmir, and many, many, many more guys (maybe three more). Anyway, here’s the Razzball Podcast (now with tales from the road):

I know, you’re mostly thinking every minute of the day that my number one contribution to the world is my mustache. Number two is my fantasy baseball ‘pertness. Number three though, you don’t know, but I reveal it on today’s podcast. It’s both uncanny and very, very uncanny. Two very’s. Nick’s mind is blown, but will yours? (Yes, it will.) Also, we go over Mark Trumbo and how he will probably hit 178 homers this year; we touch on Tyler Skaggs in the non-sexual way; I explain to the world why I want the Mariners to win the World Series and drop some drool on Taijuan Walker‘s punim. Oh, and Nick can’t believe marijuana is legal in Colorado. Hopefully, he can now pass the Razzball urine test. It’s not your standard urine test, if you test negative, you get fired. You must test positive for some kind of drugs. Anyway, here’s the Razzball Podcast (now with me even more renaissance):

Rudy and I put aside our differences in ADP and got on the podcast together. After 2 years, Rudy and I both realized we should be on ground lines. I think the sound quality is excellent, except for this weird cackle coming from my connection. I know my laugh doesn’t sound like that! There’s no way! Nick, Rudy and I touch on (non-sexually) Junior Lake, Adam Jones, Sonny Gray and Billy Hamilton. Also, you need a little back story on one of the sections of the podcast. Before I get on the show, Nick asks me if there’s anything specifically I want to talk about. Well, this time I fed him a question about a hotheaded 3rd baseman competing behind Will Middlebrooks — C.T. Tamburello. Oh, and because someone’s gotta pay for JayWrong’s dating life, we also have on the RotoDerby guy. Anyway, here’s the Razzball Podcast (now with Rudy saying bad things about Sonny Gray and me not standing for it):
