We recorded an episode over the weekend before the news broke. I was drunk, Grey was handsome, and baseball seemed very unlikely. This show will never see the light of day, as MLB decided to blindside us with actual baseball! Knowing this new, uh, news, Grey and I got on the line and said, “We gotta give the people the good new, uh, news!” So like a couple of missionaries stationed in a foreign land, we brought the good news. The news of baseball’s return and the glorious idea of the NL DH. Due to our excitement around the potential boost for several NL players in fantasy, Grey and I go team by team breaking down viable DH candidates for every club. It’s a glorious return to baseball!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Baseball is coming! The spring was dark and full of terror. But the Lord of Light is generous and merciful, so a 60-game baseball season will lead us out of the darkness!
I’m joined by prospect wizards, The Itch and Hobbs, on this week’s celebratory Goin’ Deep Podcast. Off the bat we discuss a few of the ins and outs of the forthcoming MLB season and what it might mean for prospects and your fantasy baseball leagues. Then we dive into the 2020 MLB Draft results as Hobbs and Itch share which teams landed their favorite draft classes and why. Later the prospectors divulge which players from the draft we might actually see up during this shortened 2020 season, including Max Meyer and Burl Carraway. Hobbs also discusses a few of the names from his Pre-Draft and Post-Draft Prospect Sleepers.

Appreciate everyone who has taken this multi-month journey with Donkey Teeth and I as we try to figure out exactly what this Patreon podcast will be. We started with interviewing ex-athletes (Lenny Dykstra), filmmakers, comedians, Prospect Itch and just Donkey and I shooting the shizz about what we’re watching on TV during a pandemic. Last week, we brought on friend of Razzball and comedian, Billy Hurley, and I secretly fell in love. I think it was our best show and the format seemed to click. Talk about the news that no one else wants to talk about or, rather, no one else should be talking about because they are ludicrous news stories. It’s the It Only Sounds Like Fake News Newshour!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jerry Blevins (@jerryblevins), 13 year MLB veteran and Met great joins the the show to talk about his career and some of his favorite memories over the years.

Baking, Baseball, and Baseball not being played that’s the theme for this week’s show as Shelly Verougstraete of several websites (Rotographs, Dynasty Guru, Pitcher List, Prospects 365, and Over the Monster) and the best baking Instagram you’ll ever witness joins us. We indulge in our virtual sweet tooth as Grey and Shelly talk baking and I just drool at Shelly’s Instagram. Boy that sounds different when read aloud. No matter, we get into last week’s draft and some of the top fantasy names to look for, as well as discuss a little of the current MLB versus MLBPA drama. It’s another can’t miss episode of the Razzball podcast.Please, blog, may I have some more?
