Right when the podcast started, Wandy was traded to the Pirates, but we don’t talk about that trade much at all because I got the sense Nick didn’t believe me when I announced it.  We do discuss Jeffrey Loria and his stupid aqua-orange fetish that’s only surpassed by his lies and deceit.  Man, I really hate that man.  Let’s trade the whole team we just put together; we’ll still have Ozzie and an ugly as f*ck stadium the city paid for.  Okay, sorry, I’m losing it again.  We also discuss when we’re gonna see Wil Myers and Mike Olt, because, well, I feel like we discuss that every show.  Then there’s a whole riff on slump busting that lasts about 7 seconds.  Is that a riff?  I don’t know; you tell me.  There’s a lot of trade talk though mostly.  Who’s going where and WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?  We use caps when we talk so lower the volume on your podcast-listening device.   Anyway, here’s the Razzball Podcast, now with real live trading done by other people that we comment on:

    Where’s the easiest place to export all the projected starters into Excel?

    I’m in a weekly league and am streaming aggressively; works quite well when you only need to pick 2-3 starts per week.

    Looking forward to Argo, except for the fact, well… is there any way we can convince Baffleck to keep directing but stop acting?

      @Awesomus Maximus, Saw the trailer in front of Batman… Felt Wag The Dog-ish…

        @Grey, Hmm… perhaps. Still, can you get to work on the Baffleck thing? And while you’re at it, please make sure his brother is done directing and sticks to acting. Seems like a win-win-win (which, by my calculations, is ultimately a tie).

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          I actually liked that Baffleck’s bank robbing movie… But I think Casey’s terrible at everything except in 5 minute character actor spurts…

            Awesomus Maximus says:
            (link)

            @Grey, The Town? Yeah, he directed it… precisely my point. I liked Casey in Jesse James, Gone Baby Gone, and The Killer Inside Me. Anything else I’ve seen him in was aight, but way better than his writing/directing (I’m Still Here).

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              I’m Still Here was miserable… For me, Casey’s good in small doses… But he’s never really been in large doses in any roles, so I guess I feel the same about him… Renner was great in The Town, but The Hurt Locker was really my favorite picture of that year, and I’ve loved him in just about everything… But have only seen MI and those other two…

              • Awesomus Maximus

                Awesomus Maximus says:
                (link)

                @Grey, Renner seemed destined to be a crap action movie staple (S.W.A.T. and 28 Weeks Later come to mind), so it’s been nice to see him get some good roles over the past few years.

                Did you see The Killer Inside Me? Can’t stand Kate Hudson or Jessica Alba, but Casey’s low key style made for some truly jarring and disturbing scenes.

                • Grey

                  Grey says:
                  (link)

                  I never saw that one… Kate Hudson is usually a no-brainer for me to stay away… Can’t say I’d see a movie for Casey either…

                    @Grey, Well then you can watch it for the fact that it’s an adaptation of a Jim Thompson novel.

                      @Grey, Eh… I’m seeing that Alba won the Razzie for Worst Supporting Actress, so perhaps my fond memory is unwarranted. I dunno’… I’ve seen about 300 movies between now and then, what do you want from me?

                      @Grey, I probably feel this way after the first episode of every season, but there doesn’t seem to be much talent in the room… like casting went for characters over designers. I expect to only like a few of them, and be constantly frustrated by the judges liking anyone else.

                      I liked it…Then though about it afterwards and realized my expectations were so low from the All-Star judges and mentor… That served its purpose. I like Ven and the girl that claimed to come up with visions in her dreams when in reality she was just ripping off The Matrix… Sad to see the first girl go, she was smoking…

                @Grey, Renner was a fill-in on my Culver City softball league a while back before he blew up. He hacked butts in the dugout like Leyland. Played a decent ss too….

                    @Grey, what? no one liked him in National Lampoons Senior Trip…I remember the first time I saw the Hurt Locker and thinking I thought that guy was a comedy actor. Oh well, you never know how a career will turn out.

                      @Grey, maybe it was the constant altered reality I was in the mid 90′s, but hell it had a cameo by Tommy Chong and starred Matt Frewer aka Max Headroom. yeah I waked and baked to that one more than once. It was surprisingly on cable alot.

    @Grey: After another disastrous final inning by FRod, is Axford set to again save games for the Brew Crew? What is going on with that situation? Is there another closer in the lurking? I’m trying to trade Axford for a starter (Josh Johnson) as I need some wins, but if he is going to again start racking up saves I might stand pat and hopefully make up some ground in that category in our 4×4 NL-only league.

    OK, a carryover from the previous post, re: starting Norris and/or Cahill.

    Thanks to Worley and Lincecum, I have a solid lead in ERA and WHIP and am still ahead in Ks.

    I wasn’t going to start either, but wold you now give one or other a whirl to try and grab a win?

    is how I feel about Jemile Weeks. My A’s hit around the league and Jemile doesn’t do squat! I’m over it. I’ve been waiting/hoping/thinking with my heart that my boy will start playing like the guy who’s pictured on my A’s fridge magnet should, but I can wait no longer.

    Howie is starting to come around (a bit) at my 2B, so at least all I need to do is find the best avail MI…

    Missed out on Rutledge and Valdespin, so the options out there are: G-Beckham, Purple Evolutionist, Lombardozzi, Mark Ellis. Or as I call them: Barf, Belch, Zizzy, and Maybe?

    Drop J-Weeks for Ellis, who’s the #2 hitter in front of the suddenly pretty solid seeming middle of the Doyers lineup? Also, take note, Ellis has 33 runs to Weeks’s 40 runs – in HALF as many ABs as Jemile! He almost lost a leg and he’s better! Gah! Jemile!
