Grey is back in the desert, and we have baseball to talk! After buying a new home in the fabulous Hollywood Hills, our fearless leader and his lady boss, have moved out to the desert while the house that Razz built is under construction. Instead of doing an episode of celebrity house flippers, we talk a little trade deadline. Will Zack Wheeler, Nick Castellanos, or Noah Syndergaard be moved? After we solve every teams needs we move onto some hot bats and arms over the last few weeks, touching on names like Tyler O’Neill (King In The North!!!), Jose Urquidy, Rogelio Armenteros, Asher Wojciechowski, and Ryan Yarborough among others. It’s another classic!

The trade deadline in the Razzball Commenter Leagues is fast approaching.  Thursday, August 1st is your deadline, which means by the time you’re reading this, you’ll have about one week to make your move(s).  Happy trading friends. I happen to be on vacation this week which means I’m not at work and happily enjoying some day drinking like my DFS buddy, Richardo last week.  Fear not though, I’m still here for my fellow RCLers, I won’t leave you hanging. We’ve got top ten updates, updates on the ‘Perts League, trades and our weekly leaders for the week that was, week 16.  Hopefully, without too many hiccups.

The Fantasy Master Lothario joins the Ditka Boys again on this week’s baseball podcast. They discuss Grey’s industry leagues for way too long before diving into some real baseball talk about 2nd half rankings. Grey discusses his process in compiling his preseason rankings compared to his 2nd half top 100 and then Donkey Teeth grills him on ranking of Vlad Jr (#71).

After some discussion about mid-season fantasy baseball trading, the guys chat about Donkey Teeth’s ranking of Trevor Bauer in his most recent Top 100 Starting Pitchers post. And finally Grey really begins to sweat when German Marquez’s name is brought up. Find out what Grey, B_Don, and Donkey Teeth expect from Marquez moving forward, and don’t miss out on the big announcement from the football side!

There are lots of options to choose from at starting pitcher tonight, but most guys are fairly pricy and are going to cost you. Braves starter Dallas Keuchel is an exception, though, as he comes in at just $7,200, despite a 3.58 ERA through six starts. Keuchel hasn’t been racking up many strikeouts, but he should be counted on for a strong outing against a Royals lineup that has just a .295 wOBA versus lefties this year, ranking them as a bottom-five offense. On a night where many owners will be spending up on their pitchers, rolling with Keuchel as a contrarian value pick seems like it could hit.

Andrew Benintendi has been…Actually, we should stop there and dissect those first four words.  He is Andrew Benintendi, as far as I know. ‘Has been’ is interesting, but more of the hyphenated word ‘has-been,’ as in ‘once was’ as in, “I saw Tom Arnold at the Whole Foods near me, what a has-been.”  Funny side note that is actually related, as most of you know, Rudy does the titles, I write the posts. So to get a title, I text him what I want the lede to be. Yesterday, I texted him, “Benintendi is a sh*tbird, but might be coming out of it with a homer, title ideas?”  That really is it, isn’t it?  What more is there to say?  His strikeout rate is egregious (for him), up from 16% to 23.6%.  His home run per fly ball would make Juan Pierre be like, “Nuh-uh, cuz, you don’t play with that turd.”  On top of the vomitorium that is housing his stats, he’s hitting so many fly balls (46%) that are going nowhere (87.5 MPH average exit velocity). This is actually a recipe for disaster I just made-up:  Benintendi has 17th most extreme launch angle and the 7th (!) worst HR/FB.  In layman’s terms, he’s hitting everything up and nothing out.  That’s awful.  So, yesterday was a solid game (3-for-5 with his 8th homer, hitting .266), but I’d be careful thinking he has been good, without the hyphen.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Who would’ve thought little D.J. LeMahieu would be the best free agent signing of the past decade? Yeah, I said it! Mainly because I have an awful memory and suffer from extreme recency bias! He’s definitely the best signing of this preseason though. He’s 3 HRs away from setting a new career-high, already has a new career-high in RBI and is again leading his league in batting average as he did with the Rockies in 2016. His disappointing, injury-plagued 2018 caused his stock to dip a bit, but Brian Cashman is looking like a genius again for this signing. And oh yea, not that it matters to us, but he’s playing Gold Glove defense again at both 2B and 3B. Does defense matter to you? Do you use any defensive stats in any of your leagues?

After a weekend out at a bachelor party in Charleston, that means sitting down to put these starts together while also fighting off sleep at the same time. No commentary under the sections this week, but wanted to make sure I got the rankings and information out there for you to set your lineups.

Hello, poppets! VictoriaB here, pinch-hitting for Wander34 while he summer vacates (totally a verb). I was pleasantly surprised to find that MLB is not running a skeleton crew this sunny summer Monday: in fact, it’s rather a fulsome slate, with 11 games going down across baseball land. Options are varied by position, but I think we can build ourselves a decent enough slate on FanDuel today, around our anointed centerpiece, Robbie Ray.

The Astros got two great starts this weekend from two guys who weren’t in the conversation until recently.  On Saturday, Jose Urquidy went 7 IP, 1 ER, 2 hits, zero walks, 9 Ks, ERA at 5.54.  He made my pants up-jump-the-boogie a little from his pitching.  I expect multiple roofies from him still, but Urquidy is […]
