Don't be shellfish...FacebookTwitterGoogle+

I know what you’re thinking, “Roger Dorn did not drop by Razzball HQ?”  Well, Roger Dorn did indeed drop by Razzball HQ and sat down (virtually over Skype) to answer some hard hitting questions.  And you thought my tangential Hollywood connections were gonna go to waste.  I got one word for you.  It starts with H and it ends with A and it’s two letters — HA!  A friend of mine produced his new movie, Bad Actress, and, if you like these types of interviews, do us a favor and queue up the movie at Netflix. To get on a soapbox for a second (I won’t be on this soapbox too long because I get vertigo like Lidge), indie films don’t get distribution through main channels and now Netflix is pulling a Blockbuster and not even stocking indies unless the demand is great enough, so if enough of you queue it up, then Netflix might order it.  If you queue the movie, it doesn’t even mean they’re going to send it to your house because they don’t even have it yet, so queue it up and then when it’s in stock do what you do.  Basically, small businesses cater to an outside-the-box audience, and then they become a big business and stop doing what made them successful.  Now when is ESPN buying us?!  Anyway, here’s the Razzball podcast, we’ve been a-Dorn’d:

    Thanks for the site and the comedy each morning.

    Here is an interesting trade………(12 Team NL-Only Roto – 2 C 5×5)

    My Rickie Weeks/Buehrle for Cozart/Lincecum

    My Pitchers:
    Cain, Gio, Lohse, Buehrle, Vogelsong, Cishek, Casilla, Westbrook, Hernandez

    Hitters:
    (C) Ruiz/H. Sanchez (1B) Carlos Lee (2B) Weeks (3B) Pandaval (SS) Clint Barmes (2B/SS) Manny Burriss (3B/1B) Juan Francisco (OF) Giancarlo, Bruce, Ethier, Nieuwenhuis, Parra (UTIL) Campana

    (DL) Freddy Sanchez and Torres

    What do you think? Is there a remote chance Weaks turns this around and hits 20HR? Too much to ask him to add Daniel Murphy to this deal?

    *Also, what the heck is going on with Juan Francisco? No trust in him at all while Glass Chipper is gone?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          @mrobs, It’s okay… Trading for a top closer isn’t the way to win…

          • mrobs says:
            (link)

            @Grey, I hear ya.. I’m a full on Greyist and would never normally draft or trade for a top closer, but my relievers have been awful thus far… Santos, Farns, and Frank Frank.

            I’ve been on the losing end of picking up potential vultures… lidge, peralta, romo, etc. etc.

            And my pitching seems to be stacked with the addition of lynn, and the way Gio, Beachy and CJ are pitching.

            Also afraid Phillips is going to lose some steals for the time being with his hammy issue.

            I may be over thinking this whole thing, but I countered with that. So, we’ll see what happens.

    Ok, ok, already! I just added Campana… dude could get 100 steals! Ha ha, but seriously! I was one of those jerks hanging onto David Murphy… … no reason… just because. Grey’s right. Murph-man doesn’t have any upside, and what do I really need with someone that could give me 12 HRs and 12 SBs just because he’ll avg .300 in 400 at-bats?! Besides, I’m doing a’ight with power and average right now, and I can find at least twenty guys right now that would give me 12 HR over a year… that ain’t but a thing, mang! But if you might have 40+ SBs in your legs… <> now that might be the difference between tagging me some 8-10 roto points with just that one OF addition.

    Steals Ain’t Got NO Face !!!

            @Grey, Ha! I prefer it to Monk, but that’s just me. It’s probably because I aspire to be a sarcastic ass like Shawn Spencer. And Maggie Lawson ain’t turrible to look at, either.

  30. Looking forward to the new Podcast!

    Here’s a long-ish question from the previous post (I hadn’t noticed the new one up at the time):

    Hi guys: Have your opinions on Doumit changed much since the pre-season? You had him down for a projected line of 45/14/55/.260.

    He’s my catcher in a 14-team 6×6 roto league, which makes him by far my weakest starting hitter. I’ve tried hard to upgrade to someone with more power, but haven’t found any takers no matter how hard I push. Do I need to keep trying? Ot is there a bigger hole to fill?

    (I know I have plenty of speed and need power, pitching’s OK except I need holds. I was hoping I could answer the power need with a slugger like McCann but it’s not to be)

    My roster is:
    C, OF Doumit
    1B Votto, Gamel
    2B Aaron Hill
    SS Elvis
    3B Zimmerman
    2B/3B/SS Aviles
    1B/2B/OF Kendrick
    OK McCutchen, Rasmus Bourn, Boesch

    SP Beachy, Cahill, Scherzer, Bumgarner, Anibal, Latos
    RP Casilla, Balfour, Aceves, Shaw, Marmol

    DL Chris Young, Fister

    Many thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Enrique, Doumit could get those stats no problem still… You have of saves if you could move one for a catcher then I’d consider it…

  31. Haven’t listened to the Podcast yet, so this may be answered there — but how DID you convince Corbin Bernsen to be interviewed? Was it tough? Is he a reader of the site?

    • Grey

      @Enrique, Answers in the post above…

      • @Grey, I read that, but did your buddy just ask for a favor and that was that? Did he say yes right away or did he take some convincing? I’m not trying to pry … just curious how these things work.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          @Enrique, Ah… Bernsen was asked by the director and producer to take ten minutes to promote their movie and we were a good fit since he’s known for a baseball movie…

          • @Grey, Well done.

    12-team, 5×5 roto, 5 OF, 7 pitchers.

    I was just offered my Motte for his Logan Morrison and Hector Santiago.

    No idea why he would do this but he’s a savvy owner who has won my league about 50% of the time since its inception so I’m always skeptical.

    We are back to back in saves (8th and 9th place). I’m currently in first place, he’s in third.

    My other closers are Axford and Myers (bench)

    My other OF are Bruce. Dread Pirate, Victorino, Rasmus, Fowler, Reimold (DH), Duda (bench).

    I have no reason to do this but I have no reason not to. Pull the trigger and if so, who do I drop?

    Thanks dude.

    I haven’t read through all the comments today so I’m sorry if you already answered a similar question about Scherzer. I’m in 10 team roto league with 1350 innings limit. Each team has about 5 starters. I have scherzer. Do you still like him for this year as a top 50 pitcher? I read your 2012 post about him and drafted him. I know it’s early but I’m having trouble keeping him on my team. Thanks.

        @Grey, Well, perhaps someone with a better defined role.

        I like the look of this Cook character on the A’s – 5 holds so far and great ratios, although Smokey is a bit down on him due to his low Ks. A’s are bad though. Couldn’t score in a brothel.

        And someone just dropped Boggs in my Holds league so might grab him…

    C – J Montero
    1b – Pujols
    2b – Aviles
    Ss – Rollins
    3b – Lawrie
    CM – ARod
    MI – Bonifacio

    P – Garza
    P – Gio
    P – Ricky Romero
    P – Anibal

    BN – S Marshall
    BN – Jim Johnson
    BN – H Santiago
    BN – Revolving door (offense – boesch, rios, bourjos, etc.)
    BN – Streaming SPs

    I was just offered Mark Teixeira for my Zack Greinke. I’m always looking to trade and upgrade my roster and feel like even though I dont necessarily need Teix, and probbaly do need Greinke a bit more, I can get more trade value down the line from Tex rather than Greinke. Thoughts? Which side do you prefer given my roster? Thanks

    • Grey

      @LagunaBobbyI, I’d hold, it’s close though…

  68. TheNewGuy says:
    (link)

    Shit news on Pineda, guess I might aswell drop him now (you were right to pass on him Grey, though not sure it was for this reason!). Anyway with Pineda’s spot I might aswell stash Bauer now right? 16 team H2H so he could prove mighty useful down the line.

    Also to create a streamers slot, which of these guys would you drop: C Carpenter (only 1DL and taken by S Santos), J Parker (pretty solid start for the kid), Bard, or Lidge (have 2 other closers).

    • Grey

    Huff to the DL but Belt still doesn’t get the start? Is Bochy trying to see how many brains he can break in the first month? Is playing for the Giants like being in the military, where you get broken down, and then built back up again in a manner more fitting to receiving orders? Or is Bochy just mad at me about mocking his gargantuan cranium? Is he trying to break my brain?!?! IS EVERYONE MERELY A PROJECTION OF MY CONSCIOUSNESS?????!!!!

    Seriously, though, I’d really like it if Bochy played Belt.

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @royce!, Awesome rant…

    • bean says:
      (link)

      @royce!, Belt is not at First because Hector Sanchez is catching for Zito. Posey moves to first to get his bat in the lineup. Crowded OF with Pagan, Melky and Schierholtz so there is nowhere for Belt to be today.

      I wouldn’t be surprised to see more Posey at 1B to get Hector some more ABs at Catcher. Even with Huff out Belt is not going to start a ton of games. Brett Pill is going to eat into his ABs too.

        Yeah, you’re probably right…

    …I’m getting the impression Ubaldo is, in fact, toast. His swinging strike % is way down, and without Ks he’s just a walking WHIPping post. Lose him for Burnett? Same WHIP risk, easier league at least, and I’m badly needing Ks.

    I’ve got Milone, Peavy, and Beachy paving over it a bit, but Latos’ rocky start and my janky closer corp (thanks, Santiago and Frank Frank!) are not making Ubaldo’s load any easier.

    How many FAAB do you think Ellsbury is worth? He was dropped in my league and I think he would probably be a good stash, even though Krispie is occupying my only DL spot.

      Out of how much $?

          • Ronnie James says:
            (link)

            @Grey, Awesome, thanks. Out of curiousity, how do you come up with that number? Last year I was able to grab Stanton for $8 after he was dropped, but he was worth much more than that in retrospect.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Stanton was $8 last year? Oh, then go to 11 for Ellsbury…

              • Ronnie James says:
                (link)

                @Grey, Yeah I got Stanton cheap, and he wasn’t even hurt! I also walked away with like $30 left over at season’s end though, so I can probably throw a bunch at Ellsbury and be fine.

    I know you’re not a big fan of Darvish, but he’s turning into one of my favorite pitchers. According to one of the writers at Baseball Prospectus (article here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=16647) he has at least 8 different pitches, and possibly a 9th that was used for the first time last night, a shuuto pitch, which I guess is a reverse slider except it was 94-95 and completely unhittable. I watched the MLB highlight reel of his strikeouts last night and that pitch literally looked like a wiffle ball pitch.

    If you just want to see the trajectory of that shuuto pitch from the MLB Gameday, it’s pitch 6 here:

    Really needed a good start from CJ Wilson to offset the Cahilll and Santiago shit shows from earlier…not so much thus far. Hopefully he can right the ship and finish strong.

  102. Feeding the Abscess

    Feeding the Abscess says:
    (link)

    Hammel’s throwing nearly 94 MPH and is now primarily using a 2-seamer, and the pitch values for his fastball are positive. This after having a slower, straighter, and terribly rated fastball in Coors.

    It’s early, but the improved velocity and different fastball are inducing lots and lots of grounders (career high GB rate of nearly 60%, career average 45%). If he keeps the improvement in GB rate, which is possible since he’s throwing a fastball that creates GB outs, that’ll cut down on the HR. He’s throwing his slider more frequently too, which is bringing more swings and misses and Ks. This is all in line with what he showed in spring.

    It’s only been 25 innings or so, but he’s available in 85% of ESPN leagues. Something to watch.

    • Chunk says:
      (link)

      @Feeding the Abscess, Thanks, excellent info. I was just checkin out his numbers…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I was looking at his numbers too… Definitely under the radar…

    • Wake Up says:
      (link)

      @Feeding the Abscess, Good info. But, I am not a believer. He has too long of a track record(whack record?) for me. Maybe for his starts @SEA and @OAK…what is that called? A Boriole?

      • Feeding the Abscess

        Feeding the Abscess says:
        (link)

        @Wake Up, He’s got the Yankees in New York next time out, we’ll see how that goes.

        • Wake Up says:
          (link)

          @Feeding the Abscess, Yeah, that was the other thing I was looking at…92.9 to 93.5 doesn’t seem like to big of a jump to me for the first month of the season…He’s got NYY, BOS twice and TB coming up…so if you feel good about that, take a shot…I’m gonna steer clear for now…(also his career Home/Away splits are pretty similar, not sure that getting away from Coors helps him in particular)…

    My Heyward ($10) & Bumgarner ($1) for his Carlos Gonzalez ($10) & Hanson ($16).

    Pujols looks awful at the plate…WTF is wrong with him? Dude is an absolute monster for 11 straight years and then I draft him and he falls off a cliff.

    • Feeding the Abscess

      Feeding the Abscess says:
      (link)

      @letsgobravos, For five straight years, he’s swung at more pitches total, less pitches in the zone, and more pitches outside the zone.

      His contact rates are fine, but he needs to retune his strike zone. It’s really out of whack.

    And for those Beachy owners in a W-L league, things now look rather better, especially if one has Venters and Kimbrel as well. Also helps to have Kenley and, say, Mike Adams as well (so 2 ER over 10.1 IP, with a W, a SV and a HLD).
