Welcome to another season of Razz-matazz Fantasy Baseball. For those of you wondering, that actually was Grey’s second choice for naming this site, but as you can see, Razzball won out, much to the chagrin of jazz fingers around the world. And just one ball. No multiple balls I guess. Shame. Shame. Shame. But here we are with another year of staff picks. So what’s the goal with this? Hashtag content, baby. (That’s the technical term.) There’s another goal though, one less self-fulfilling, unlike your mother. Despite the modern advancement of technology and science, we still have no way to have every writer provide their extended (or in Tehol’s case, I always hope abbreviated) take on every single player in the MLB. We try though! And so we have this quick-and-easy (I regret burning my “yo momma” joke now…) presentation that provides you, the Razzmatazzball community a viewer-friendly and succinct breakdown of how we feel about the upcoming season.

So without further ado, here are our Official 2019 Razzball Picks! (Be sure to share yours in the comments section!)

Please, blog, may I have some more?

Welcome to the 2019 Razzball Team Previews! You’ll find everything you need to know about each team to get yourself ready for the upcoming fantasy baseball season. And I mean everything folks. We’ve got charts, Slurpee’s, lube, a guide for beginner basket-weaving, and even a cactus! Oh wait, yeah, I actually just listed what I have on my desk… But hey, what’s the point of lube and cacti if you can’t share? Truer words have never been written. EVER. Anyways, without further ado (and plenty of lube and cacti), let’s check out the 2019 San Diego Padres!

For all the longtime Razzballers out there, you may remember a post just like this a few years ago. If so, you have a great memory and should consider a field in Jeopardy attempts or keeping track of how many times Trump mentions Hillary. If not, this particular strategy piece has staying power. Even with some dated examples, the main overarching theme is a sound one for Deep Leagues and can be an additive for your related strategies. So without further ado, A Deep Impact series post is now upon you! (Where I’m from, they call that Immediate Impact. HURRRR.)

So… I’m not sure what format you play in. But if your league has a constitution longer than a college thesis on the European textile industry and its effect on the French bourgeoisie, well then, you’re probably in the right place. We’re here to take a short ‘n sweet look at some uncommon scoring categories that dynasty/deep leagues might use commonly. The fantasy laymen might ask why we would create such devilish inventions… and that’d be fine, because we seriously have no clue.

Note: Fantasy Football may be over, but keep Razzball in mind for next season!

For those of you wondering, that actually was Grey’s second choice for naming this site, but as you can see, Razzball won out, much to the chagrin of jazz fingers around the world. And just one ball.

A Deep Impact series post this early in the preseason? Where I’m from, they call that Immediate Impact. HURRRR. Though… it’s hard to top my meow usage above, even with such a strong opener. Except maybe for the content of this post? Question mark, because I’m not sure what format you play in. Hint: If your league has a constitution longer than a college thesis on the European textile industry and its effect on the French bourgeoisie, well then, you’re probably in the right place. We’re here to take a short ‘n sweet look at some uncommon scoring categories that dynasty/deep leagues might use commonly. The fantasy laymen might ask why we would create such devilish inventions… and that’d be fine, because we seriously have no clue. Because it’s fun? Question mark, because it’s only fun if you know how to win with these cats. And it fits the lede’s theme. And that’s what I’m here to help you with. Theming? No. I mean, sorta. But yeah. About those cats…

Note: Football may be over, but we still have a great podcast series going into the offseason, along with NFL Draft content coming out soon. Join us?

That’s right folks, I bring to you a very special “ID4 edition” podcast, and we call it “ID4” because it’s not that common of a phrase, isn’t really used by many people and, you know, movies, so for something this special, we want to give it a sort of… unique nomenclature. Therefore, I have. BOOM. So yeah, JB is somewhere vacationing (and probably getting married again) without a computer mic, so here I am, bringing you the much heralded Grey (and myself) in discussion about all the important and current fantasy baseball issues. So of course we open the show talking about my relationship woes, almost like a callback to the old Nick the Podcast Host days. But after that, we actually do get to “stuff”. Important stuff. As Donald Trump would say, the best stuff. Jose Berrios and Jeimer Candelario, a potential call-up and a recent call-up, respectively, are touched upon. We went over Joey Votto’s up-and-down season, Edwin Diaz and his closer potential, Aaron Nola’s recent struggles, and how the return of Dee Gordon could shake up the Marlins infield a bit. And seeing as how we’re right around the mid-year point, Grey throws out his first-half most valuable pitcher and hitter thus far, and we go over the MLB playoff picture and who we expect to see in the World Series. We would have talked about Game of Thrones and it’s season finale, but I’m pretty sure we burned up all of our time talking about putting me on Tinder. First world problems, fo sure…

And when I say special, I mean special. That is, if special meant filling-in for J.B. and then talking about how Grey knows Buzzy (vicariously I think?) from Jeopardy. Be thankful you guys have Gilpin to do this, otherwise it’d just be a 25-part series of Grey’s anecdotes with a live laugh-track called Jay (that’s me!). But we do get around to talking about fantasy baseball… Yu Darvish’s debut was talked about in there somewhere, along with some meta-trade thoughts now that we’re reaching midseason. Jacob deGrom, Carlos Gomez, and CC Sabathia are touched on for a bit, along with some added tidbits about how Carlso Carrasco is a huge buy-now guy. You’d have to figure fantasy teams also have some primo sales going on during this holiday period, so maybe send a message over to your fantasy adversary and see what happens? The question mark is there because I wanted the statement to not be taken as an order, but more a suggestion. Just like how you should listen to this pod…? At the end of the show, we talk about the last episode of Game of Thrones (there is a spoiler alert during the show for all of you who haven’t seen it yet) for a bit and then we’ve made sure to include the best ending of a podcast that the world has ever seen. RESPEK.

We (the royal “we”) had a week off from this series, mostly because of the content overload last weekend. What a time to be alive! It’s no secret that we’ve had a great influx of content this season, some have been welcomed with open arms, and some haven’t. The circle of writing, if you will. But because there’s so much content, our goal with this series is to highlight, in an almost zen-like TL;DR summary, what exactly happened this past week in Razzball. You may ask yourself why it’s “in Razzball” and not “on Razzball” and the answer to that question is, would you rather want to be on something or in something? Don’t answer that actually, pretty sure that’s how we lost Tehol…

Follow me after the jump to take a look back at what was week one AND a look forward on all things Razzball, including some player suggestions for next week, straight from Razzball’s Streamonator, Hitter-Tron, and DFSBot!

One week down, so many more to go. I could look up the actual number of weeks left, but the payoff-to-effort ratio was too damn high. Which is why I’m currently single as well. Yeah, that’s exactly why. Plus, based on the old adage that time flies when you’re having fun, with my Padres starting 0-3, scoring zero runs and allowing 25, I’d say the season has bout 897 weeks left in it. Sure, that’s a rough estimate, but based on my own mathematical skills and experiencing the atrocities to the soul and mind by being a San Diego sports fan, 897 seems pretty accurate. But enough about my masochistic ways, we’re here to breakdown the wonderful world of Razz and highlight what exactly went down this week…
