Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

The great, incomparable, adjective Peter King came by Razzball HQ (virtually) and answered some hard-hitting questions.  I wasn’t wearing a shirt for the interview, but you get the sense from the astute nature of my questions that I had on a shirt.  Maybe even one that buttoned down.  *thinking*  Nope, just a t-shirt.  Let’s not oversell things here.  At Razzball, we like your expectations low.  According to Peter’s Wikipedia page though, there’s no reason to lower expectations.  A quick perusal shows he’s an American sportswriter.  He writes for Sports Illustrated and has numerous stories about Brett Favre.   Geez, Wikipedia’s like a smart person’s Mad Libs.  Why do they underline so many things?  Oh, those are links!  We talked a little about football even though that’s not a very popular sport.  *checking notes*  Hmm, turns out it is, but whatever!  We also talked fantasy baseball.  Since he’s started reading Razzball, he’s placed in all of his leagues! (Let’s not talk about where he’s placed, okay?)  Anyway, here’s the Razzball Podcast, now with Peter King:

    Reynolds or Saunders?

    Also, would you trade anibal or J Zimm for Cuddyer?

      @Grey’s da man!, Reynolds… I’d trade Zimmermann…

        @Grey, just to make sure, you like anibal more than J zimm so offer zimmerman first?

            @Grey, I don’t understand you sometimes! haha. You had J Zimm higher than Anibal in pre season and he has outperformed him with an ERA half a point lower, and now your telling me Anibal over J Zimm. But this is why you are the Sensei and I am the grasshopper!

    Nice get, I read everything Peter puts out during the football season, should be a good listen.

    Can I drop Ryan Zimmerman for Mayberry please?

    I’m only half kidding.

    I could also drop Aoki or Blanco. I need more power then speed at this point.

    Grey,

    Thanks for the podcast. Two comments then a question. Your tiny violin reference yesterday reminded me of my second favorite line from the Girls finale Sunday, Adam saying: “Here’s the worlds saddest, smallest violin playing ‘My Heart Bleeds For You.’” My favorite line was from Jessa: “That girl wears floral capris like her hymen is still intact.”

    Don’t know where I was going with that… Question: Yesterday you replied you would drop Plouffe for Rizo. Why?
    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Didn’t read the beginning of your post because I haven’t seen the finale yet… Plouffe is a hot schmotato… If Rizzo is called up, he could be huge…

          @Wilsonian, That stinks.
          Cakehill can’t pitch at Chase. I’d only start him on the road.

    My Lance Lynn for His Aroldis Chapman.

    Yahoo 14 teamer thats 8×8 and you have a 20 inning MIN…. so if I can get stellar stats I really dont need alot of SP’ing.

    My staff would be: Cliff Lee, Wandy, Bucholz, Nova, Daniel Hudson, and WIlhelmson, robbie ross, sergio romo, & then Halladay/Smyly DL’d.

    One guy who is in 2nd, has went all year with basically NO SP’ing just streams a few per week and rocks a good relief crew!

    Would you trade Lester and salty for Rasmus and goldschmidt if you need power. Obp league. I have Avila and plenty of pitching. Lester has been my worst pitcher.

          Over Peacock for now…

    @Grey: assuming plouffe is a schmotato, who do you like best ROS as a tulo replacement? cozart, scutaro, escobar, theriot, evercab or simmons?

      Plouffe’s fine for now…

    Just seen the news about Turner above, he is down to start tommorow.

    Worth a stream tommorow in a 16 teamer (H2H) if I can find room?

    Traded McDonald and Harper for Gallardo. You like ? (Harper was on my bench in a 10 team)

    I have a big lead in ERA in H2H this week – you reckon I’m safe to start Blanton v the Rockies with Milone at home v LAD later in the day?

    I’ve already had Cahill going today. Opponent has days coming up where he has multiple starters going…

    • Grey

            @Grey, Nah – took a shot. Opponent has about 8 starts coming up over the next few days, compared to not many for me.

            Still leading ERA 3.54-7.00…

            • Grey

              Grey says:

              Gotcha

              • Steve says:
                (link)

                @Grey, Oh well, not great, but thanks to my opponent’s Matusz, I’m actually better off in terms of ERA and WHIP.

                Blanton didn’t actually walk anyone and his WHIP for that start was only 0.86. Does make me wish I started Leake yesterday, though.

                Hopefully Milone can keep homeschooling tonight. And I’ll probably be wishing I’d grabbed Eovaldi instead of Blanton…

                • Grey

    NL-only H2H. Lost Beachy. Which soon-to-return DL’ed Rocky to replace him with… DLR, Chacin or Nicasio. Think Nicasio is expected back first… the other 2, not so sure. Thx as always for cracking me up (oh, and the spot-on advice)!

    I’d be willing to bet that 25% of Adrian Gonzalez’s RBI are sacrifice flies.

    It may be time to start benching him for random CI hot schmotato. I can’t take it. This is the same giant sucking sound that drove Ross Perot insane.

    Hultzen’s clogging up my staff in the keeper league and don’t think he gets the call soon. Just went to aaa and he may get ripped there. Bauer is already taken. Is there anybody else you’d rather have as a potential stud keeper than Hultzen? I can afford the roster spot.

          @herschel, what you see is what you get right now. High strikeout rate, allows a little more runs than you would typically like but he stays away from the longball. Hes really only a match up guy til he proves otherwise though. Plays at kc next week, im startin him for that one too. High rish high reward baby!

    3B A-Ram
    SS Rollins
    LF CarGo
    CF Rasmus
    RF Bruce
    Util Plouffe
    BN Ever-Cab (SS, 2B)
    BN Belt (1B, LF)
    DL Longo
    DL Bonifacio

    As of right now, who’s the odd man out here if I want to drop someone to pick up another piece? Is it Belt?

    Or do I drop Bonifacio and stash Norris on the DL instead?
