I sat here and debated what to do this week. Leagues are drawing to a close with some in their playoff matchups and others fighting for those last couple weeks of roto points. Do I pull out another suggestion for streaming from my bag (thanks Kremer) or like I alluded to last week, do I […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Read some of Coolwhip's 110 posts
Today is a big milestone for me, this is my 100th article written at Razzball. Mindblown emoji. Have I really been here that long? Where has the time gone? It wasn’t so long ago I was just a humble reader with an eye for analysis and now look at me. I’ve gotten to know so […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve now reached September, welcome. You made it. All the roster rules are out the window now (not really) and many teams are calling the youth forward to get a taste. This is the home stretch for all who are in the hunt and officially crossed over to the “What have you done for me […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to part three of Coolwhip’s dive down the rabbit hole of pitchers changing their slider. 2 weeks ago I talked about Blake Snell and Justin Steele, here. Last week I talked about Jose Suarez, here. This week we take a look at the next stage in the starting pitcher conversion of Drew Rasmussen. What’s […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week I told you the story about a couple of pitchers that went goo-goo for the slider; here. They decided to trust in their best pitch and turned anger into lust. This was the topic of some discussion in Razzland this week, about how there’s a philosophical shift in the last couple of years […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let me whisper in your ear… Have you ever learned about something that seems so obvious now that you are amazed you didn’t think about it more before? Yeah, this is one of those times. The baseball season is so long, it might as well be 2 seasons. And often with the ebb and flow […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It took a minute to get back here, but here we are. So much to talk about it. Where to begin, how about the home run chase? Aaron Judge is continuing his one-man wrecking crew. Easily the most home runs over the last month at 13, Kyle Schwarber has been sorta close at 10 but […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hey all, after a midseason sabbatical to take care of some family things, I’m back. And I’m seeing the world with a bit more clarity. Call it a furthering need for authenticity. When you are confronted with the mortality of your father—for me the positive visage of what a patriarch looks like: selfless, giving, strong, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So far this season Tyler Wells has seemingly done the impossible. One would think with a K-BB% barely above nine (9!) in the AL East there would be a culling. And yet, he continues to evade hitters and limit the damage. What is letting him get away with this and avoid getting smashed? Those questions […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Taken as a top 20 pitcher in drafts at the beginning of the year, Lucas Giolito hasn’t really lived up to the hype we were hoping for when he was taken as top pitcher coming off some statistically promising years in 2019-2021. Giolito started the season off well this year carrying a 2.63 ERA (2.93 […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
There were several names I could lead off with this week as we revisit the outfield, umm, field. But is there anyone hitting the ball better right now than Aaron Judge? I think not. There’s nothing quite like a prime athlete in his contract year that feels like he’s been slighted in preseason contract negotiations. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I benched Zach Eflin in my weekly leagues last week. There, I said it. Even us “analysts” can get it wrong from time to time. You think you have a beat on something and then a small round ball with randomly changed rules on stitching misses bats just the right way and then you are […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
