I sat here and debated what to do this week. Leagues are drawing to a close with some in their playoff matchups and others fighting for those last couple weeks of roto points. Do I pull out another suggestion for streaming from my bag (thanks Kremer) or like I alluded to last week, do I […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Today is a big milestone for me, this is my 100th article written at Razzball. Mindblown emoji. Have I really been here that long? Where has the time gone? It wasn’t so long ago I was just a humble reader with an eye for analysis and now look at me. I’ve gotten to know so […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let me whisper in your ear… Have you ever learned about something that seems so obvious now that you are amazed you didn’t think about it more before? Yeah, this is one of those times. The baseball season is so long, it might as well be 2 seasons. And often with the ebb and flow […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hey all, after a midseason sabbatical to take care of some family things, I’m back. And I’m seeing the world with a bit more clarity. Call it a furthering need for authenticity. When you are confronted with the mortality of your father—for me the positive visage of what a patriarch looks like: selfless, giving, strong, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So far this season Tyler Wells has seemingly done the impossible. One would think with a K-BB% barely above nine (9!) in the AL East there would be a culling. And yet, he continues to evade hitters and limit the damage. What is letting him get away with this and avoid getting smashed? Those questions […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Taken as a top 20 pitcher in drafts at the beginning of the year, Lucas Giolito hasn’t really lived up to the hype we were hoping for when he was taken as top pitcher coming off some statistically promising years in 2019-2021. Giolito started the season off well this year carrying a 2.63 ERA (2.93 […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I benched Zach Eflin in my weekly leagues last week. There, I said it. Even us “analysts” can get it wrong from time to time. You think you have a beat on something and then a small round ball with randomly changed rules on stitching misses bats just the right way and then you are […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I had to pivot last night. I could have gone with a few pitchers for today I’ve been keeping tabs on, but those can wait another week, I had already hinted at Naylor in last week’s outfielder post, but now he deserves a bit more attention. Josh Naylor went 3-for-5, 2 HR, 8 RBIs, one […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Intro Last year after showing up to camp with improved velocity, Trevor Rogers was a huge breakout pitcher. I was lucky enough to grab him on a few teams and thusly reap those benefits. He was touching 97/98 mph after previously averaging 93 on his fastball. The velocity gains proved to be a difference-maker. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to look at this early in the season. It’s still so early, what can we take away from roughly two weeks of games and many starters just barely having thrown 2 starts. Lorenzen had an intriguing debut for the Angels but an underwhelming second start. His command was not […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Scenario: It’s past round 38 in your deep draft league and you’re scraping the barrel for some cheap pitching. You scroll past the list of names time has forgotten decidedly less inspiring than a bologna sandwich, until, you come across Nick Martinez. Spotlight, enter stage right. He was originally drafted by the Rangers back in […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Well, look no further, as a precursor to my OF rankings I have for you a few deep pick options for that final OF slot on your 12-team and 15-team leagues to wet your whistle.
