Happy 4th of July! This top 20 shortstops rankings certainly looks way different in July than I envisioned way back in the preseason. Many player values from the preseason have skyrocketed and/or fizzled in value as we approach the All-Star break. As usual, we have our injuries (Fernando Tatis Jr., Jorge Polanco, Adalberto Mondesi), ineffectiveness […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s around that time of year in the MLB season when teams start realizing if they’re contenders or pretenders for the season. The Super Two cutoff date has passed. Teams have been calling up their prospects to give their respective big clubs a midseason boost, to showcase value in a potential trade down the line, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy Father’s Day to all you fathers out there this past weekend: If you’ve taken a break from baseball to focus on the NBA finals this past week, I’m happy to say we’ve had another exciting slate of MLB action. They say you always will see something new at the ballpark on any given day. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
They say “20/20” refers to normal vision. It’s also been said that “hindsight is 20/20.” If you have played fantasy baseball for a while, particularly in auction or keeper leagues, this proverb holds true, especially looking back at waiver adds or trades made/not made over the course of the season while assessing where your team […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The end of the world. No, I’m not talking about WWIII, the continued collapse of the US Dollar/economy, or the next predicted apocalypse conspiracy. I recently spent the weekend in Montauk, celebrating a dear friend’s wedding. Montauk is colloquially known by Long Island residents as the “End of the World” because it is the easternmost […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
As of this writing, we find ourselves in the middle of Memorial Day weekend. If you’re like me, you’ve likely found yourself in the middle of some competitive lawn games, delicious food, and several quality IPA’s (luckily a few of my home league-mates are craft beer connoisseurs) with some great company. With some interesting goings-on […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day, All: It’s another exciting week to be a baseball fan, as Adley Rutschman, Matthew Liberatore, and Nolan Gorman have received call-ups from their respective MLB clubs. Mike Trout is doing Mike Trout things, as he’s now the only player in history with 1,000+ R, 200+ SB, and 1.000+ OPS through his age-30 season […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day, All, A little over a month into the 2022 season and most people in fantasy baseball leagues are still active and paying attention to their fantasy squads. Depending on league format, some managers have been more aggressive with their FAAB bids/waiver priority claims, trying to scoop up the next big prospect (see Jose […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day Razzballers, and Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there: We are watching history. While 2022 isn’t exactly the Dead-Ball Era that Babe Ruth revolutionized, the league-wide batting average is around .230, the implementation of the DH in the National League seemingly has no positive effect on slugging percentage yet (Brandon Drury […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day All, If you’ve been focusing on the NFL Draft this week, I’m happy to report we’ve had another exciting week of baseball. The Mets combined to pitch a no-hitter against the Phillies this past Friday, Bryce Harper and Mike Trout earned their 10th year of MLB service time (I feel old), and yes […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day, All, Things have been interesting as usual as we are approaching the end of the first calendar month of the MLB season – future Hall-of-Famer Miguel Cabrera reached 3,000 hits, the Rays threw nine no-hit innings in a game that ended up not being a no-hitter, and MLB is allegedly using two different […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy Easter/Passover/holiday weekend Razzballers: Easter Weekend is upon us at my household, meaning there is plenty of delicious food/drink to be consumed, talk of World Series aspirations are still reasonable for my fellow Yankee and Met fans, and my grandfather will be asking me about the merits of investing in Bitcoin. Great times! We’ve had […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
