Dear readers, listeners, and friends this is my final post on Razzball. After years of working a variety of jobs here I have taken a full-time role with Baseball America. So this is a emotional podcast for me and not just because we discuss the CBA! I want to thank everyone for their support over the years. Soooooooo… anyway, we invited on Tipping Pitches (@tipping_pitches on twitter). If you’re not familiar Alex and Bobby discuss the labor element of baseball. The guys were great sports as Grey and myself (two men of below-average intelligence but above-average looks) pepper them with questions about the CBA and potential lockout. It’s an all-time classic!Please, blog, may I have some more?
You know we had to do it em! We’re wrapping up the year in classic Razzball fashion with our annual end of year draft for next year. Will I take Michael Conforto? Is Tyler O’Neill in the mix? Will I guilt Grey into drafting a pitcher? All this and more on this year’s edition of the Top 25 Players For 2022 Fantasy Baseball. It’s like January Grey but with less Crazy Uncle vibes.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s coming to an end boys and girls. Don’t be sad that it’s over, just be happy that it happened. Seriously, we had a full season of baseball this year. That’s reason enough to celebrate in my book. Unfortunately it led to some STRONG taeks early on in the season. One such strong taek was the demise of confirmed alien Juan Soto. Grey and yours truly, take a moment to dig in on Goato’s second half, and his NL MVP chances. We talk some Shane Baz, a little Wander Franco, Robbie Ray, Hans Crouse, and Marcus Semien’s record setting 2021. It’s a hell of a show, we even banter less in the open!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Vlad vs. Ohtani – is there a better way to start off this week’s show? Probably but we discuss it anyway. After that we slide into Shane Baz and Ryan Vilade before talking September Stars Eddie Rosario and Wily Peralta. Then we touch on all sides of Jorge Polanco. His lovefest with Rudy’s WAR Room and his value this year and historically. We round it out with some 2022 discussions around Logan Gilbert, Shane McClanahan, Lindor, Javy Baez, and Jo Adell. It’s another week of the Razzball podcast.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Grey has the red ass and he’s not going to stop yelling for anyone, even Robbie Ray! So what else could we do but record all of it and get his takes on a variety of topics. “Which topics Geoff?” Well, first you sound like Oliver Twist in my head when you ask questions. Second, I’m glad you asked. We talk Corbin Burnes and his unbelievable season, Wander Franco’s ADP for 2022, Adam Duvall, Alejandro Kirk, and a list of potential waivers for the week ahead. It’s the Razzball baseball podcast for that tight ass.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is the episode where we chant Donda for the first 15 minutes of the show. After that we talk baseball. But not just baseball fantasy baseball. Gentlemen and three ladies, we’re hitting the closing weeks. That means it’s time to talk about 2022 and what top rounders from 2021 will be values after disappointing seasons. We talk Lindor, Bellinger, Bieber, Yelich and others. Then we dive into waiver wire adds and rookies you should know. It’s a delightful singalong episode of the Razzball Podcast.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Wait another former Cardinals prospect is tearing it up with a team that isn’t the Cardinals? No way, that’s never happened before, or even over and over again over the last few seasons. We’re of course discussing Patrick Wisdom. It’s gotta sting that he ended up with the Cubs, no? This run doesn’t even make sense. So Grey and yours truly talk about it, we mix in some talk of Starling Marte’s unbelievable season and a handful of names to grab over the final month. It’s the latest Razzball podcast!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s been said before, but I’ll say it again, the Angels have done a tremendous job of wasting two generational talents over a ten year period. It’s frankly impressive. Mr. Albright and yours truly debate which should go higher and where you’re comfortable valuing each going into 2022. We then touch on the string of 4.2 IP starts this season, waiver wire adds, and some potential rookie call-ups. It’s the Razzball baseball podcast with 20% less pants!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Is Tyler Gilbert good? Will anyone remember his name in 6 years? Did Grey break Joe Musgrove? Did Geoff watch Chris Sale’s return? Did Geoff sidetrack us into Sean Manaea conversation to praise him just as he was giving up seven runs? Is there an easier way to make Century Eggs? These are many of the questions we answer this week on the Razzball Podcast. We also talk Edward Cabrera, Lewis Brinson, Hoy Jun Park, and Jose Miranda. It’s the Razzball podcast, now with more ums and uhs.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Grey overate… Too many dumplings for the fantasy master lothario. So, he leaves mid-show several times to take bathroom breaks. We edited those out. As for the baseball, we talk Ramón Laureano’s suspension, Abraham Toro’s current burner, Zack Wheeler’s emergence as an ace, and who exactly is Luis Gil. All that and more on this week’s show. Don’t forget to listen for Easter eggs, which are really just Grey’s muffled farts in the background.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The boys are back and ready to talk about the wildest trade deadline in at least a decade. We talk about the Cubs fire sale, how the new homes impact fantasy production from the top names. Players set to gain playing time based on trades, and some of the top callups over the last week. We also spend 10 minutes at the top of the show trying to figure why the Rockies didn’t trade Trevor Story and why they draw as many fans as they do. Another week, another Razzball podcast with your boys.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, we got sucked into name talk to open this one, but don’t worry it last around 90 seconds and we promptly move on to baseball. We talk Nelson Cruz, we talk Rich Hill, and we talk potential trade deadline moves. We discuss shooting Cody Bellinger into space with Jeff Bezos, talk some returning pitchers, some waiver wire names and Grey bakes a delicious tart. All of this and more on the latest episode of the Razzball podcast.Please, blog, may I have some more?
