Greetings! How’s your week going? Swimmingly, I pray. How’s mine? First off, thanks for asking, for it’s much appreciated. I have a 88-year-old Grandmother with a severe alzheimer’s and a broken hip, so things could certainly be better. That’s without mentioning what is seemingly a wasted season for Corey Dickerson and sliding in at dead last in one my RCL leagues. Ahhhhh, the Elder Gods have decided among themselves to test me this week, seeing if I will wilt and ball up like a baby as if I were Lindsay Lohan after her coke dealer began screening her calls. Say one thing for Tehol Beddict, he’s a artist. And I WILL NOT stop pouring out my heart and soul into this Razzballian scripture, not until my final breath. With that being said, I’m exhausted, so let’s move along shall we.

I am Tehol Beddict, and this is, DISGRACE/DELIGHT! TAKE HEED!

 

Players who have Delighted:

Josh Harrison – Did you drop Josh Harrison when he was colder than a polar bears balls, only to have your arch nemesis swoop him up a week ago, and manically cackling at you ever since? Whoopsie! Wow, that stings worse than being forced to cut your urine flow off mid stream after you fill up the Starbucks cup you have in your car during heavy traffic. Been there. Not a pretty sight. Neither is this, and I do feel for you. Say one thing for Beddict, he’s a lover. What’s Jo-Ha done this past week you ask? Oh, only hitting for a ho-hum .538 BA, with 6 runs scored, 4 doubles, and a yack. I’m sure the waiver wire scum you replaced him with is doing just fine though… about as fine as Christian Slater’s acting career. It huuuuuuuuurts!

Jung-Ho Kang – We all recall Beddict’s preseason sleeper list, containing the phenomenal Mr. Ho. Many of you believed the other fantasy analysts were going to laugh at me, shaming me into retirement, requesting my head on a stick and my testes in a jar, and a very small jar at that. Kang’s slow start was worrisome to say the least, but as of late, he’s come on hotter than a fresh pile of mastodon dung. He’s batting .350 over the past week and I’d expect some serious dongage in his immediate future. It’s a Kang-thang, beatches.

Will Venable – Just kidding.

Yasmany Tomas  Oooooh, Beddict loves him some Cuban beef cakes, and Tomas is rounding nicely into form, right when we needed him most. Of course, the power is lacking, which is disappointing, but it shall come, and come hard….pause. This behemoth checks in at 6’2″ and 240 pounds of pure chocolate and I fully expect the bombs to start reigning down upon us like a plague of locusts. Of course, I’m willing to let the lack of power slide if Tomas continues to hit .556 as he has this past week. We are all witnesses. Hog life.

Mad Max: Fury Road  Honestly, I was expecting to find some flaws here— possibly a Waterwold of the desert. Don’t get me wrong, I loved a gill having Costner roam the seas with that MILF as much as the next man, but we can all agree it was a let down to some extent. Other than a lack of Tom Hardy dialogue, I truly have ZERO complaints regarding this instant classic. A non-stop, action packed, thrill ride of the likes we’ve seen has just been released and it was beat down at the box office… by Pitch Perfect 2… How could the men of this wonderful country allow this atrocity to occur on our watch? If you plan on voting for Hillary, don’t answer that. Anyway, I’m on my knees, begging you to go witness this stunning piece of art, preferably in IMAX. My goodmen, when have I ever steered you wrong? [Jay’s Note: Coming from a die hard fan of the first two, I can safely say this was probably the best action movie in the last 10 years. Yes, even better than John Wick.]

 

Players who Disgraced:

Taijuan Walker  If I was able to clear my head and accurately describe the peasantry of which Walker has displayed in 2015, I’d be a New York Times bestseller. The man formerly known as “Sky Walker” has been peonic beyond measure, as one can be slapped and challenged to a duel in the streets of Seattle for comparing him to a Jedi-Knight. It saddens me to know end, for Seattle has had opportunities to trade Walker, arguably the top prospect in the game, for David Price or Justin Upton. I understand that young pitchers are going to struggle from time to time, but Walker has shown almost ZERO positive signs thus far. The fact that he couldn’t hit 92 on the radar gun in his last start is troubling and rarely have I witnessed a more hittable pitcher. Have I mentioned his WHIP is higher than Snoop Dogg during Thanksgiving feast? One more start like Monday’s in Baltimore and Walker will be sent to the minor leagues or sent to DL with arm fatigue. I swear it on the souls of the Elders. You’ve got to be realistic about these things.

Corey Dickerson I haven’t had my soul obliterated like this since I was turned down for the Calvin Klein thong internet catalogue in 2012. One difference though: I should have pushed myself harder during my hour long squat thrust sessions. Dickerson’s injury is obviously not his fault, purely a curse from the Elder Gods. It certainly stings those among us who drafted C-Dick in the 3rd or 4th round, as we clearly have no clue what he brings to the table for the remainder of 2015. I’m assuming he steals zero bags and goes on and off the DL a few more times. Shizz, they may even shut him down for the season, as Dickerson himself has clearly stated, he doesn’t foresee this problem going away the entire season. Woe is us, us who worshipped Dick (Pause) for the God he is, to witness him hammering opposing pitchers like they were a groupie in Justin Bieber’s trailer, only go down in a heap like Achilles when Legolas sniped the seemingly invincible man with an arrow to the heel. Hence the term: Achilles heal… You learn something new everyday here, or wait, did you guys/gals know that already?

Mookie Betts  Dookie nearly made this list two weeks back, but hit two bombs during my writing night. It’s as if the Elder’s sent a spirit talker to let him know Beddict was writing scripture regarding his failures that would be passed down from generation to generations for thousands of years. Well, Betts has become too comfortable, and now he must pay the piper, and Beddict plays the pipes better than Lisa Ann and Alexis combined. Dook has hit a paltry .143 over the last seven days before Wednesday’s 2-for-5 game, with ZERO doubles, ZERO triples, ZERO Homers, ZERO walks, ZERO steals, and ONE RBI. I meeeeean, how is that even possible bruh? You been taking pointers Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr. again? The Elders frown upon peasantry, and right now, my goodman, you define the term to perfection. Boston fans have grown to expect less out of you then we do those straight-to-On Demand PPV movies that star some washed up Hollywood icon, expecting that it’s enough to squeeze 8.99 out of us. Trick please! Get your mind right or I’ll see you again next week, same time, same place. Only it will a Game of Thrones type spanking, and I’m not writing of the playful bottom slapping Ser Loras loves, no, certainly not.  What I write of, is a medieval, ruthless, no holds barred, obliteration of your soul, one that you little chance of recovering from. So take heed, Mookie, for you once showed so much promise. I would hate for your career to end here, in the pages of Beddict the Elder Chosen.

 

Thank you for joining me for another edition of Disgrace/Delight. As per usual, your comments and questions will be responded to below with haste, so please do not hesitate to summon me. Again, I’ve been running around all week, dealing with a few tragedies, so please excuse me if I was not on my A game this week. I promise to return to you next week, with the hunger and rage of 1000 rabid Direwolves. Enjoy the rest of your week, my goodmen.

    Hog life? hahahahah! Awesome man. I am hoping the Yas-man can pick up the power especially in AZ. I just don’t doubt that the team does some stupid and benches him in their crowded IF/OF when Lamb comes back.Really one of the most incompetent franchises in the game…J-UP/Scherzer/Bauer…

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: yea so many terrible moves. I pray they don’t f this up. I meaaaaan, Lamb??? Jesus who cares. Play Tomas. I never understood Scherzer trade when it happened one of worst of all time doesn’t get mentioned enough

    Sorry it has been a bad week for you. Hopefully next week everything turns up Beddict!

    I have heard nothing but good things about Mad Max. Will definitely be going to see it this weekend.
    A note on Christian Slater: Not sure if you watch Archer at all, but he’s been voicing a CIA agent for the past two seasons. Thought he’s been funny.

    If you were going to trade Dickerson now, what kind of value should I be expecting to get back?
    Would love your thoughts on Paxton as well. Worth owning in a 12 team league?
    The league these questions relate to include OPS and QS as categories.

    • Wjessereid says:

      @J-MoneyIV:

      Archer is a great show.

      My team is named in tribute.

        @Wjessereid: Nice, which of the many quotable lines did you go with?

    • Russell says:
      (link)

      @J-MoneyIV: Slater is on Archer? Guess I better start watching, the man is underrated as comic gold. Exhibit 1: The badly mistreated Breaking In.

      • Tehol Beddict says:
        (link)

        @Russell: never seen it. Should i get Slater’d?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @J-MoneyIV: thank you, my goodman. I haven’t witnessed archer yet but I keep being told I need to so I will. Slater on there? Perfect. I smell a comeback. Or is that just his calvin Klein Obsession cologne?

      Paxton defintelty own able and crazy high upside. Grab him for sure. No idea on dickerson. I offered him amd clippard for Corea amd was turned down so there’s that. Wow

      • J-MoneyIV says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Grabbed Paxton off waivers. Thanks! The fact that the trade you proposed got turned down means he probably has no value to others. Looks like I need to keep him. I guess the good news is that next year he will probably go for a huge discount.

        Archer is definitely worth it. I would assume it is a comeback, but I am not familiar with Slater’s scent.

        • Tehol Beddict says:

    I tried for like a minute to find some clever way to get sucking in there with Dick. But I failed. Your role as writer and mine as reader are obviously for a reason.

    Great job. Wish I could say the safe about my draft. Puljos, Dickerson, McCrutches, Lucroy and Rendon.

    Fail.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Wjessereid: ouch!!! Hmmmm Dick, sucking? That works. Haha. Or C dick, sucking ? McCrutches hahahahahah. You’ll bounce back. U always do

    Hello Tehol,

    Would you drop Jimmy Rollins and add Jung-Ho Kang?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @Chris: hello yourself, buddy boy! I would have done it weeks ago. Can always swoop Rollins back up when he picks it up.

    I know that interrupted pee thing. One college road trip I filled up a 40oz of Old e (wide mouth of course) and had to shut down the stream. Painful stuff for me and my friends car.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Zeus: I’ve even know to fill many a steel reserve 211 40 ouncer in my day. That’s a powerful urine flow u have there. #Kudos

      • Zeus says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: ah steel reserve, another cheap option. I had a friend who used to pour his into glasses and keep the bottle in the fridge. We busted his balls at the time but in retrospect it makes sense. Those last few sips…..,shudder

        What’s your take on this weeks horrible closer shake ups in TX, AZ and HOU? I have Kela stashed but Tolleskn is out there. Have about $36 faab left. Should I try to lock down TX or save my money and pick up backup in Cle? And is that Mcallister?

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Zeus: oh I used to pound 211 like water. honestly. i didnt realize how bad it was until many years later. i was famous for it and to my knowledge the first one to discover it.

          Man, i like Ziegler the best but they really like him in middle relief.other dude got 2 saves in a row so maybe they stick with whats working. wouldn’t be surprising.
          For Houston I assume Gregerson is still holding that but whatever was going on with family seems rough as he’s been awful ever since. qualls is guy if replaced.

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Zeus: looks like id add Tolleson if I was you. he’s there and is now current closer

    Maybe we have different tastes in film, but Mad Max is the prime example why Hollywood is dead. That movie was atrocious. 2 hours of riding around. Horrible horrible movie. Stick a ton of hot women in a movie, put a bunch of CGI in it, and society eats it up.

    Thanks for the write up!!

    • TarmanGotHim says:
      (link)

      @TarmanGotHim: I did forget to mention that this is obviously my opinion. To each his own haha.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @TarmanGotHim: maaaaan, really?? What’s another comparable movie tho? I found it much better than Avengers 2 or any other action movie I can think of for years. I need some examples. But yes everyone has different opinions as a lot of razzball readers refuse to click on my posts hahaha

      • Bye Felicia says:

        @Tehol Beddict: dude Ex Machina is the greatest cinematic masterpiece in the past 15 years. I’m talking Matrix level son! Everyone go see it or stream it at pubfilm.com for free like I did. It’s in HD1080P not a generic cam rip

    Nice Tehol! What timing on this one too. This morning I added Kang, and Tomas in a couple leagues. Hoping for the best, I could certainly use the boost!

    You’re hanging in there at #2 for my RCL (beddict’s Brood of Bros). I was unfortunately forced to auto pick that league up to #6, so not my best work. I’m Gris Dub (my cat) in that one.

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @ShawnOfTheLivid: 6th sounds great for auto draft! Thanks for participating . Loving me some Tomas. What a hog

    OH AND THAT LAST EPISODE OF GoT!! (spoiler alert people)

    So yeah. HBO decides to add a scene not in the book. Not a cool dragon scene. Not a “take Cersi down a notch scene. Or the thousand other options that would be sweet. No, lets pile on Sansa Stark with another creepy rape scene by one of the sickest characters on the show, because endless brutal tragedy should be the only thing that ever happens to her character. Following that lame Dorne fight scene too, in which nothing happens and the “elite” sand snakes look like total pushovers. Literally getting beat one handed.

    Ok. Rant over. But really. Was hoping for a more interesting/entertaining end to that one. Am I out of line on this? What say you!?!

    • Zeus says:
      (link)

      @ShawnOfTheLivid: she was marrying Ramsay Bolton. What did you expect would happen?

    • Teddy Heater says:
      (link)

      @ShawnOfTheLivid: My wife and I talked about this on Tuesday because there was so much controversy over it on Monday. To quote my wife “I get that it was horrible, but truthfully I expect worse from Ramsey. Plus it was implied” Granted I have a kick ass wife, but I didn’t think it was that big of deal nor did the author of the books. If anything I was creeped out that he made Reek watch. What we should be talking about is how didn’t me was we see any effn Dragons! HBO how are you gonna bait us in at the end of previous week and then not show one effn Dragon scene! Tehol, looking forward to seeing Mad Max have a great holiday weekend boys!

      • ShawnOfTheLivid says:
        (link)

        @Teddy Heater: I hear ya there. My rant isn’t totally reflective of my feelings towards the scene. I just felt it wasn’t much of an add to the story, and they could do better.

        Maybe my bar is too high for the show, but to toss that in at the end was kind of lame. At least in my opinion.

        I certainly wasn’t all up in arms about it like so many people on the internet. I mean, it is GoT, so I always expect some horrible scene. I thought something more interesting was going to happen.

        • Teddy Heater says:
          (link)

          @ShawnOfTheLivid: Actually, now that I think about it you make a good point. It was kinda weak, but in GOT fashion, they usually follow up something like that in a big way the following week.

          • Tehol Beddict says:
            (link)

            @Teddy Heater: something major in on the horizon. I can feel it deep within my loins

      @ShawnOfTheLivid: hahahahhahh the god damn Sand Snakes me puke. wow, i was hoping they’d jut ax the whole squad out of the show. the accents slay me. hopefully Bronn sweet talks one into his bed, kills her after, then slaughters the rest of the Yaya sisterhood of the traveling snakes. truly a disgrace to the show.

      Rape scene was unfortunate because, as you mentioned its not in the book so they really going out of their way. Writer really has rape on his mind……………… is that good or bad? yea I’m about ready for Ramsay to get slain and who better than Reek the castrate?

    The men of this country chose a night away from their significant others and instead of watching Mad Max had a nice night with Pornhub, strip clubbing, or went out to drool at the young ladies of this new generation who take going to the gym like we take to jerking off. I too really want to see it in IMAX, I told the babys mama i need to do this. As a kid, I took a toy sword sheath, had my brother saw off my toy shot gun and would play Road Warrior in the backyard, (yes I really did this) Some kids played cops and robbers or war, but I played the road warrior. Why am I saying this publicly?

    Myers has to be on this list also. “Oh, and I have these bone spurs in my wrist that bother me when my tendon gets inflamed.” Why didn’t he have that dealt with last year?

    I have Myers, C-Dick and David “Wrong” on my NL-Only team. Next year can’t come fast enough.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Pugs&Slugs: hopefully you play fantasy football, enjoy the NBA playoffs, or like errrr, hiking or something. gonna be a long year….just kidding. you can still do this bro! who’s on waivers?

      • Pugs&Slugs says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: I’ll be teaching summer school (we’re out tomorrow) so that’ll keep me busy. Yes FFB can’t get here soon enough. I have a title to defend.

        Very few guys on waivers. We only have 3 bench spots and no DL spot. It’s a NL-Only H2H auction league ($280 cap, keep 5) and I have huge value players that I can trade. There’s no peer review up until the last out of the All-Star Game. I just took a break from emailing the owners of the last place team. They don’t have many cheap keepers, so I was thinking of offering them:
        Franco, Marco Gonz , C-Dick and Heston for Kendrick (14), Pence (28), Lynn (27) and Casilla (7). My guys prices are below. They also have Posey (28), but they won’t let him go.

        The problem is that these owners think that their guys are legit keepers at the prices (Casilla is) and won’t look at true value. They are decent prices, but not bargains. I will promise them that I won’t keep the guys they trade to me as I have no need for them. I have GOLDY, Bryant, Chapman, Pollock, and Myers that I’d rather keep. It’s risky, because I could have a sick (cheap) five going into next season, but I want the $ this year. I guess it’s risky for them too, but there’s no way their team can compete. Maybe I’m crazy, but I see a win-win for both of us.

        My team with next year’s value.

            @Tehol Beddict: Just heard back from one of the managers. His response was, “Not interested. Besides, I’ve never heard of Franco, Marco, and Heston.”
            I’ll give you three guesses to tell me where they usually finish in our league.

            Algebra 1 (both semesters) in 4 weeks. Pretty intense. Only 10 students so it’s nice. It keeps me from going stir-crazy, it’s great $$, and I still have a 4 week break.

              @Pugs&Slugs: Should I try Dickerson for Lynn? I would lose Dickerson as a bargain keeper, but Lynn would give my SP an edge.

                @Pugs&Slugs: thats ok if you think its best you can do. in a keeper league you may be able to get more for him, from the bottom feeders anyway

    Master Tehol!!!!!

    Fantastic write-up. Thanks for the update on Mad Max, will definitely look for it now.

    With Yan Gomes coming and available in all four leagues I play in, have offered my Vogt for Kluber (in 2 leagues) and Vogt for Kershaw (in the 2 other leagues). My hope is that I’ll be able to pick up Gomes and either Kershaw or Kluber for Vogt. That has to be a positive move, right?

    Cheers,
    Ante

      @Ante GALIC: that would be an incredible trade if you could somehow, someway, pull it off. If anyone can do it, it’s you, Ante!! you’re the best

    8 teamer Keeper league question

    Need to stash travis on the ir.

    Currently have rendon reyes iwakuma corbin and wheeler on there.

    Is corbin or wheeler worth holding onto? Reading corbin could be a top 40 pitcher the 2nd half of the season…hmmm

    Thx for any input :)

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @slimbo: corbin is at least back this season as wheeler wont be back till later. do you think someone will immediately swoop wheeler or can you get him back when one of your injured returns like Jesus when you need them the most?

    Dickerson…. I am truly saddened by his misfortunes. Yet, some part of me still believes he can hit 25 bombs this year despite his DL stints. Dude is a beast. We can SAGNOF our way to making up for his lack of steals, but I believe by the end of the year we’ll still get enough stats from him to justify his draft position. I am in a keeper league where I drafted him and I’m holding tight. The way I see it, Dickerson seemingly has Grayscale, but we must follow in Stanis’ footsteps and freeze his illness before it spreads. Faith and prayer, my friend, and the Elder Gods will provide.

    Another disgrace I need vent about is my boy Soler… he’s killing me, and not softly. Dude needs to get his shit together. What happened to him? He was my big keeper this year at $1… I’m just hoping I don’t have to wait till next year for him to unleash his god-like fury.

    But I digress… Always a pleasure, Tehol. I feel truly blessed that I have you in my life. Pope out

      @Pope: POPE!!!!! My Goodman!!!! You are correct about dick; We cant get fair trade value anyway so it’s best to hold and hope he harnesses his Elder God given abilities. The Grayscale must targeted and put to a stop.

      Soler is still young and I’d imagine he will get hot sooner rather than later. he’ll bring the thunder at some point, trust in me.

      The blessing is all mine, my friend. thanks for checking in

      @Pope: with this injury, and the time missed you say “dick will justify 4th round status”? that’s crazy. I’m not saying he was a bad pick if/when you/we made it, but there’s almost no way he’ll make up that value. This isn’t some injury that guys just come back from 100% right away, and it’s probably better for us that he just gets it fixed, rather than clog up a starting slot with nagging injury

    Thought on Carlos Gonzalez & Matt Kemp? I drafted both in one of my leagues…can we expect them to start hitting ?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Jim: JIMMER! ooooh, tough one. yes, they will both pick it up. Kemp will be fine or even great at some point. Car-Go is a tad more worrisome but i expect him to pick it up as well. probably cant get much for him so its best to hold and await the turnaround

    Lisa Ann and Alexis play the pipes?

    Yeah I’m in full agreement the Mookie has been disgraceful this week. Though that said the whole damn Sox offense has, he’s just caught the disease yo! Bench him for a while in shallower leagues I guess, gotta come around soon right? One thing, he loves his home cookin, so lets hope the red sox and Mookie feast up soon.

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @Swfcdan: yes, the flesh pipes.

      Yea, i cannot drop Mookie as his skill set is so tantalizing but for the life of me, I cant figure out why he isn’t stealing when he hits one of his rare singles. that would at least give me a reason to leave him in.

      • Swfcdan says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: *closes freeones* Ah those kind of pipes!

        Irritates me too man. But the Red Sox have never been a running team, apart from Ellsbury as that’s all he did. All the 35+ steal predictions on Mookie were gaga imo, he’ll be more of a 20-25 guy until he gains Farrels trust.

        • Tehol Beddict says:

          @Swfcdan: i mean he got 5 pretty quick and then just stopped. I’m confused
