It’s the end of the year and we do as we always do at this time, bring on a guest and mock the first 30 picks for 2020. This year we had a surplus of carrots so we invited Donkey Teeth to join us. Little did we know the size of the eggplant DT was packing. Seriously it was the biggest eggplant I’ve ever seen in my life. So after the initial shock wore off, we started to mock. And mock we did, my friends, rolling through the top 30 players with some surprises mixed in as well. Ladies and gents, thanks for a great 2019, see you in 2020 (though, likely back for a Winter Meetings pod in December)!Please, blog, may I have some more?

Can you taste the end? It’s just days away, and after one of the longest seasons of my (Ralph) life, I’m ready to move onto the offseason, sleep, and begin life again. But before we can do any of that, Grey and myself hit you with our final in-season podcast of the season before we move onto the annual end of year mock draft, featuring a very special guest (no, not Jose Canseco). As for today’s episode, we talk more 2020 value on a handful of players including Miguel Sano, Trevor Bauer, J.D. Davis, Garrett Richards and Willie Calhoun. We cry about Sam Hilliard being a Rockie before launching our hopes and dreams into space. Sorry, the Rockies treatment of prospects is my Waterloo. Anywho, it’s another week of the Razzball podcast.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week on the pod we focus all of our discussion on the 2020 season and our thoughts of potential value of a very strong shortstop group. How strong? So strong that we may end up with 8-10 shortstops in the top 25 next year. It’s that deep. We of course touch on some Cornpop jokes, talk about Grey’s personal crisis of the week, and ask Kyle Tucker or Gavin Lux for 2020? We roll through a few more “either or’s” for 2020 before rounding out the show with the appropriate roundhouse kick. Thank God we wore our Zubaz! It’s the latest episode of the Razzball Baseball Podcast.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Do any of you recall the R.E.M mid-90s classic night-swimming? Well Grey Albright does, but he’s decided to flip the concept on its head. No longer do nude swimmers hide in the dark, oh no, on behalf of all nude swimmers everywhere Grey Albright F.M.L. has taken his nude swimming to daylight, and in the desert no less. So the first 40 minutes of the podcast was entirely focused upon this Ironman-like persuit. Give us a break, we’re getting close to the end of the season and we’re all a little goofy. We then continue our dive into 2020 by using some of the 2Early Mocks as a discussion point. (Giancarlo Stanton in the 4th!) We talk a ton of players and suggest a few adds for the stretch run. It’s the latest episode of the Razzball Baseball Podcast!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The season is winding down, September Call-up season is here, and we’re on to talking 2020 drafts way too early. We discuss how early is too early to draft Ronald Acuña, as well as numerous 2020 player battles. We talk about a handful of September Call-ups too, but this show is more about Grandpa Joe. For those of you that don’t know, Grandpa Joe is the Greatest Generation’s answer to Grey Albright. At 93, Joe is still making dirty jokes and sexually harassing waitresses.
As far as I know Grey does not sexually harass waitresses.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Perhaps you’ve read or listened to Grey Albright over the years and thought “Is this the Larry David of Fantasy Sports?” If you have, then my friend you were 100% correct, and this week’s opening will only further cement that thought. Grey Albright our fearless leader of SAGNOF was banned from his favorite Crab+Boba establishment. I know what you’re saying “Ralph, it’s Crab+Boba spot?!?! Does Grey own this joint?” Surprisingly no, Grey does not own this anomaly that seems like it was birthed in the recesses of Grey’s brain. Not only did he not create it, he can’t even go there any longer. Oh and we talk about fantasy baseball too. Actually most of the time we discuss baseball, topics like 2020 predictions, Schmotatoes to add, and some of the recent callups we’ve got the monocle on. It’s the latest episode of the Razzball Fantasy Baseball Podcast, now 17% more dangerous.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The days of the calendar for centuries in the Western world have been measured by one event. The birth of the messiah Jesus Christ. However, following this weekend’s happenings we as a people have decided to change it. All history prior to August 1st will be known as B.A., short for “Before Aquino.” While all days after that date will be known as A.A., for “After Aquino”. It is the Reds’ slugger’s world and we’re all just living in it. So, of course your boys Ralph and Grey had to talk a little Aquino, before hitting on all the other less important happenings in fantasy baseball the last week. Punisher, punish me, so bad, so bad! It’s the All-Aquino episode of the Razzball Podcast!Please, blog, may I have some more?
So you started the season with a monstrous keeper squad of Jose Ramirez, Giancarlo Stanton, Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, and Luis Severino? Now you’re sitting in a bathtub, crying like Grey as he watches Travis Shaw and Jose Peraza bag his sack of Whole Foods groceries in the year 2021. Peraza holds the bag while Shaw inserts the various packages of beyond meats. The toaster is already plugged in and heating up next to your bath; Johnny Cash’s rendition of “Hurt” is blaring on your old school boombox as you shovel Hagen-Daas into your face. Suddenly everything goes black! Did the toaster slip into the tub? Nope, you blew a fuse!
Now you have a choice. Either go flip the breaker, crank The Man in Black back up, and finish the job; or wipe those tears away and send out a flurry of fantasy baseball trade offers before your deadline passes. In an effort to save a life, here are my top 20 starting pitchers for 2020:Please, blog, may I have some more?
We published our podcast last week at possibly the worst time to cover the trade deadline. Tuesday afternoon, means all the news was a week old when we recorded on Monday. So what did we do? Talked about Jason Kipnis for forty minutes of course. So perhaps that’s a bold faced lie. We actually only talked about Kipnis for about two minutes while spending the rest of the hour touching on a slew of recent callups, winners in the playing time battles post trade deadline, and touched on some NL Only drama in Grey’s home league. Yes, the title has nothing to do with anything. It’s just words that sounded good. Not joking!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Only hours after the MLB trade deadline, Donkey Teeth and B_Don are joined by Razzball’s new head prospect writer The Itch (starting Sept 1st). The gang breaks down the fantasy implications of the most impactful deadline deals including the Bauer, Greinke, Stroman, Castellanos, and Gallen trades. Guest Itch also gives his thoughts on the most relevant of the prospects involved in each deal.
