Last week’s streamers were full of mixed results. All of the pitchers did ok, but none of them went off. The hitters fell in the same boat, with Garrett Cooper looking like the best pick of the bunch. Recommending a guy to blow up against my Rockies is a double-ended sword but rooting for the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Today is June 26th. On this day in 1961, Yogi Berra collected his 2000th career hit. The Hall of Famer and 18-time All-Star is widely regarded as one of the greatest catchers in baseball history. Some of his very long list of baseball accomplishments include 14 World Series appearances, catching Don Larsen’s perfect game in […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A slow week other than a couple of notable call-ups and activations. Should go without saying but all 10/12 team adds should be sought out in 15’s or deeper. Notable team schedules: Eight games: Guardians, Twins, Blue Jays Seven games: Yankees, Athletics, Pirates, Mariners, Rays Five games: Diamondbacks, Tigers, Mets, Giants It is […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
An amazing 80’s band, Ezequiel or Jarren? Why not all three? At the very least, it’ll make my Google searches efficient. And yes, while we (the royal we) generally don’t cover multiple players in this content-space, it’s hard to pass up such a nominal title. Not just that, but there’s a somewhat weird poetic juxtaposition here in terms of what Jarren Duran and Ezequiel Duran bring to the table. And while I’m still reveling in the +5 to creative writing by using the word juxtaposition in terms of what each player brings to the table, I’m still humbled by the fact that I’m drawing a blank on a proper Duran Duran pun that doesn’t involve someone being a wolf and also hungry. I mean, let’s be honest, I’m hungry, but not like Michael J. Fox 80’s hungry. 40-year-old jokes make me sad…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Kansas City Royals rookie slash on-again off-again major leaguer Edward Olivares was 2-for-3 with twin tanks as he returned from injury Friday night picking up right where he left off: mashing baseballs. Oli showed the KC Mob what he could do at the end of April/early May with a seven game hitting streak collecting 11 […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Howdy Razzpeople! I hope you have had a smooth week out there. I spent some time out of fantasy and in the REAL ballpark this week for the Chicago White Sox Pride Night. The Sox took an L (and I do not mean the train) courtesy of the Orioles. However, the vibes, food, and booze […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hogan’s Heroes was a fine television show in the early 1970s. Only a portion of the readership will have any recollection of the show. The best thing about Hogan’s is there was never a reboot. The network/writers left a good thing alone and stuck with the original. The same thing cannot be said for other […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It does not take much in our game to go from fantasy darling to swift after-thought. Take for example the season line of 86-23-92-.310-2. This is the last full season in 2018 for Scooter Gennett of the Cincinnati Reds. After an injury stunted 2019 season and a trade to San Francisco that did not jump start his season, he was simply out of the game. So what is the point of all of this besides the fact that I simply miss Scooter as one of the fun personalities in the game? Today, we are taking a look at two first basement who were generally after thoughts in spring drafts and still do not get their due nearly halfway through the season. Hopefully they both have better fates than Scooter.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re heading into the last week of June, and the struggle is real when it comes to keeping on top of fantasy baseball rosters in the deepest leagues. Many if not most of the interesting prospects we’ve been waiting for have already arrived to the big leagues, and if you’re not rostering any of them […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s time for another rousing edition of Getting Ahead In Head To Head. As we enter the dog days of Summer, it’s really time to grind out those wins and stay ahead of the competition. Side note—Why do they call them the “dog days of summer”. I am rather partial to dogs and find them to be comforting and kind. There is nothing about the 99-degree days with 70% humidity in St. Louis that I find neither comforting nor kind. On a positive note with the MLB, it does appear that with the rise in temperature, there is also a rise in the offense. Batting averages are up nearly .20 points since April and there were roughly 1200 more runs scored in May than in Mar/Apr combined.
So what does this have to do with head-to-head baseball? Not really anything, but it shows that attention to offense is paramount. Use this time to make sure that you put the best players in a situation to succeed. Yes, I know that this is pretty generic information, but I can speak out of personal experience. I have had Myles Straw in my lineup way too much and should have heeded my own advice. While I am not saying to bench your studs because they have a tough matchup, but there are times when a “gut” call is necessary. Let me be the rumble in your stomach and play the role of your “gut”. But if you happened to have Taco Bell last night, that isn’t me talking, get to the bathroom!

If you’ve got a younger sibling, you may remember those days when you’d take advantage of your physical/athletic superiority over them. You’d feel really big and bad if you could out-wrestle them; you’d let them get leads on you when playing sports at home, only to come back and take the lead and win at […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
All Star voting is in full swing for the MLB (go vote for your favorites) so lets turn our attention to the fantasy baseball points league All Stars. I don’t want this list to just be a look at the top 3 at each position because you can check that on whatever platform you’re playing on. Plus I want to recognize some performances from guys no one was talking about during draft season. And it’s my list so I can write about whoever I want. Let me know who you disagree with below or on Twitter. Hopefully you were able to snag a few of these guys for your squad.
So without further ado… I preset my 2022 Fantasy Baseball Points League All Stars.Please, blog, may I have some more?
