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!

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:

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!

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.

Then B_Don and Donk grill Prospector Itch on the early edition of his late season top 100 prospects list. The youngsters discussed include Luis Robert, Jo Adell, Bo Bichette, Kristian Robinson, Marco Luciano, Gavin Lux, Josh VanMeter, CJ Abrams, George Valera and Tommy Edman.
Finally, The Itch proclaims one of his favorite prospects Trent Grisham aka The Reckoning, “Should be in the majors right now”. Just minutes after the show recording is complete, Trent Grisham is called up by the Brew Crew! Get your lotion out, The Itch is here to stay!

Grey is alone in the desert, well that’s not true. He’s there with Ted his faithful, yet hateful pooch, and a few thousand virtual friends. To give the Fantasy Master Lothario some reprieve from his isolation, we hopped onto a podcast and talked about some of the last week in fantasy baseball. Granted that happens every week, but it means a little more now. This man needs us, he needs to talk about Marcus Stroman, the desert heat, Bo Bichette, and going to the movies just for the A/C. Show the man some love and lend your listening ears. Or you can just listen and laugh at him, that works too.

Grey is back in the desert, and we have baseball to talk! After buying a new home in the fabulous Hollywood Hills, our fearless leader and his lady boss, have moved out to the desert while the house that Razz built is under construction. Instead of doing an episode of celebrity house flippers, we talk a little trade deadline. Will Zack Wheeler, Nick Castellanos, or Noah Syndergaard be moved? After we solve every teams needs we move onto some hot bats and arms over the last few weeks, touching on names like Tyler O’Neill (King In The North!!!), Jose Urquidy, Rogelio Armenteros, Asher Wojciechowski, and Ryan Yarborough among others. It’s another classic!

The Fantasy Master Lothario joins the Ditka Boys again on this week’s baseball podcast. They discuss Grey’s industry leagues for way too long before diving into some real baseball talk about 2nd half rankings. Grey discusses his process in compiling his preseason rankings compared to his 2nd half top 100 and then Donkey Teeth grills him on ranking of Vlad Jr (#71).

After some discussion about mid-season fantasy baseball trading, the guys chat about Donkey Teeth’s ranking of Trevor Bauer in his most recent Top 100 Starting Pitchers post. And finally Grey really begins to sweat when German Marquez’s name is brought up. Find out what Grey, B_Don, and Donkey Teeth expect from Marquez moving forward, and don’t miss out on the big announcement from the football side!

CHOO-CHOO! The Albright train keeps rolling along as we dust off the cobwebs of the all-star break. Grey opens the show talking a little about his trip to Portlandia, his mom’s concerns for his safety due to ANTIFA, and the amount of Birkenstock’s he saw in plain view. It’s a thrilling conversation that can only be outdone by talk of Meth Gators. Outside of that we talk a ton of baseball, from the Gurriel Bros recent assault on MLB pitching to trades that went down over the weekend. It’s a jam packed show, but what else is new?

Back from break, B_Don and Donkey grab their sausages and dig right in on some genius all-star break ideas. For profiles this week, the guys look at 2018 vs 2019 for two under-performing starting pitchers: Jack Flaherty & Zack Wheeler.
The Ditka dudes profiled Flaherty on a podcast last season if you’re looking for a more in detailed description of his offerings, demeanor, and more. For this show, Donkey Teeth explains what he thinks went on with Flaherty in the first half and why the Cardinals’ youngster is his favorite buy-low pitcher for the second half. Then, B_Don breaks down Wheeler’s repertoire and looks into the numbers from his 2019 first half compared to his dominant second half last year. Should you be buying Zack Wheeler also? Find out now on the one and only Fantasy Sausage Podcast.
The Sausage Bros also run through some quick pick up recommendations to round out the show. Taste that sausage.

Grey Albrillie is the illest! THE ILLEST! That mustachioed maven of ranking is back in the building, and his new list slaps, bangs, pushes, and strips you of all inhibitions. We go through the whole rack and hit you with some game for the second half of the two dot one-nina. It’s the Top 100!!! I tried to write this intro in Quavo’s voice. How’d I do? Ralph Honcho out!
