All hail his grace, Tehol of House Beddict and House Razzball, first of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of Fantasy Baseball, and Protector of the Realm.

Greetings! I come to you flaccid and weary after a five day boar hunting/brothel hopping excursion. A nice treat from my loyal subjects, celebrating the fact that Peter King, the first King of the Andals, wrote a blurb on how much he adores Razzball.com. Now, I’m guessing he’s never read Beddict scripture, but who am I to turn down an opportunity to take down the same breed of beast that brought a heartbreaking end to my very dear friend, Robert Baratheon, not to mention unsheathing my long sword a time or two, all while being rip-roaringingly tanked? After Maester Sky closely inspected my unmentionables, giving me what looks like a years supply of penicillin and three anti-itch creams, I remembered I still had work to do! There were many disgraceful performances over this past week or two, the kind of disgraces that make Jorah Mormont’s traitorous ways seem almost acceptable, and if you believe a few “possible” STDs are going to stop me from taking quill to parchment, then good sir’s (and madam’s), you are sadly mistaken. Let us not forget those who shined like a young Rhaegar Targaryen on the battlefield, and may their songs be hummed by children in the Godswood for hundreds of years… If you’ve visited me here before, you know how I do it… every two weeks I’ll be mixing baseball and Game of Thrones. (Jay and I also dedicate a segment to the show on the Fantasy Football Podcast!) Interesting concept, eh? No? You must like the taste of ice cold Valaryian steel, ser! And as always, spoilers ahead!

I am Tehol Beddict, and this is Disgrace/Delight, GOT style! Take Heed!

If I may, I’d like to begin by memorializing Bryce, Son of the Harper’s, graduation to manhood. Tis true, his balls finally dropped and rumor has it that when they did, it caused an earthquake so behemoth, that the King of the White Walkers is now having second thoughts about bringing Winter. The few of you here today, my chosen disciples, who have stuck with me through the good times and the bad, recall me writing that Bryce Harper was worthy of a top-5 overall selection in 2014… We all know the tale, as I ended up looking more foolish than Prince Oberyn, who allowed himself to be ankle grabbed and then brain squeezed by the villainous Gregor Clegaine. After that horrid injury and Matt Williams being injury plagued in the head, I took Bryce to the best brothel in town, ordered two flagons of Dorne’s finest wine, and told him this:

 “Kill the boy, Bryce Harper. Spring is almost upon us. Kill the boy and let the man be born.” 

In hitting seven of the kind of dongs that would make even the cold-hearted and relative-humping Cersei drop to her knees and “give praise” (in the last six days I might add), it’s safe to say that boy we once knew… is no longer.

 

Players who Delighted

“A good mother never gives up on her children. She disicplines them if she must. But she does not give up on them.” – Daenerys Targaryen.

Kris Bryant  Not since the father of my Dire Wolf puppies, have I witnessed a creature with such exquisite  power and grace. Not since Dragons flew rampantly in Valyria, have I seen a beast with this ruthlessness and killer instinct. Bryant has officially awoken from his power hibernation, clubbing three bombs with the kind of ferocity we haven’t witnessed since Robb Stark’s pregnant wife was stabbed to death at the “Red Wedding.” By the way, how is our Khaleesi going to harness in these dragon children of hers? Drogon, the mightiest of the three, has already gone AWOL and the other two seem about as tame as Latrell Sprewell’s pit bulls, hence their chaining in a dark hole. I’m extremely curious on how this all works out… Will she one day learn to make these savage creatures fully submit to her or will they one day rip her limb from limb like she was made of straw and devour her flawless shredded corpse? I suppose we’ll have to keep viewing.

“Oberyn tossed his spear at my feet and said: girl or boy, we fight our battles, but the gods let us choose our weapons.’ My father pointed to the spear and then to my mother’s tears. I made my choice long ago. – Obara to Ellaria and her sisters.

Jimmy Paredes  After being released and getting passed through waivers unclaimed on multiple occasions, one wouldn’t blame Jimmy the Jubilant for calling it a career. But no, not Jimmy. When Paredes’s father threw a Louisville slugger at his eight-year-old son’s feet, his path was clearer than the sky on mid summer’s day in Dorne. Through Sunday, Paredes was batting a succulent .355 with 5 long dongs and more RBIs than I can count. Sure, his BAPIB is an astonishing .400, and that will surely drop like the sunset sea level of the Iron Islands when the tide goes out,  but “the Jubilant” is a man of conviction and I wouldn’t put it past him to have an all-star season. (And how horrific was that “Sand Snakes” scene in Dorne? Muddled accents, detestable acting, and to top it off, none of them even managed to arouse me. Say one thing for Tehol Beddict, he’s easily aroused. Let’s hope they just cut them out of the show in the same fashion Jon Snow lopped off the detestable Janos Slynt’s dome.)
tumblr_nmlt4nffMx1r00543o1_r1_250

“There’s power in you. You resist it and that’s your mistake. Embrace it.” – Melisandre to Jon Snow.

Stephen Vogt  Not since Ser Barriston the Bold (RIP) have I witnessed an old timer swing the stick like Vogt. Somehow, someway, at the ripe age of 30, Vogt has managed to match his career high in home runs through a minuscule 32 games, from the catcher position no less. I haven’t even mentioned the fact his .337 average and 30 RBIS have brought all the finest ladies and gentleman of Westeros to their knees like they were one of Ser Loras’s playthings. Will it continue? Absolutely not, but that doesn’t mean the man shouldn’t be given kudos for his perseverance and early season dominance. May the Gods be with you, Vogt of Visalia. I’d like to take away previous built up kudos points given to Jon Snow, for turning down the opportunity to lay sword to the titillating Melisandre. After all, her sexual advancements is a crime punishable by death in my Kingdom. Every time I witness that pale, full-mooned, voluptuous backside, I’m forced to ask my humble servant, Reek, to dump a bucket of ice cold water down my trousers. That cooky temptress has awakened fires inside me I never knew existed as she’s jumped to number one on my power rankings for the “Sexiest women of GOT.” You know nothing, Jon Snow.

you_know_nothing__jon_snow__by_veritech_z-d3reaqb

By the way, what are your thoughts on Jon Snow’s parentage? The hints are clearly pointing to Snow being the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, Ned’s super hot sister. Is it that simple, or are we missing something?

“If I give everyone what they deserve, I’ll have no one left to rule” – Danaerys Targaryen.

Craig Kimbrel   With a hideous 5.64 ERA and a disturbing 1.34 WHIP, I haven’t been this concerned about a man since the Mad King used to torch people alive, just for looking at him wrong. The Padres took on peasant, Beej Upton’s salary in order to acquire this proven stallion so they better pray to the “seven” he turns it around, and quick-like. Odds are heavily in his favor of turning it on though, as Kimbrel is the greatest closer since Margaery Tyrell. It’s not as if you can drop the man and it’s not likely a swell idea to sell low. If I dropped every player who deserved dropping I’d have no one left to own. And why doesn’t Khaleesi gather the unsullied and slaughter every former slave master in Mareen so that she may move on with her next conquest? Why show compassion for these trolls? What does she have to show for it? The ever loyal and legendary Ser Barristan Selmy, dead! The ever-present and leader of the unsullied, Greyworm, wounded and in love with a woman he can never bed… I suppose he could be legendary at giving fake chow though, so at least he has that going for him. Again, stop dealing with these insignificant peasants and move on to the next city, babe. You can’t fix everyone. You’ve got to be realistic about these things.

 

Players who Disgraced

“Long sullen faces, and occasional punches to the face: The Mormont way.” – Tyrion Lannister.

Stephen Strasburg  Long dismal faces, and occasional punches to the nuts: The Strasburg way. I wrote extensively about Stras last week, so I won’t waste much more ink on this fantasy peon [Jay’s Note: As I see an entire paragraph waiting for me…], but seriously, can one of you, my loyal subjects, give me an example of a more heralded star that let us down more often than Selsye, wife of Stannis Baratheon, who is unable to produce him a son… yet keeps their stillborn bodies in glass jars? Maybe someone’s done that with Strasburg’s unmentionables… it wouldn’t take a very large jar, that’s for certain. Yep, Wednesday night, Strasburg basically cost me WHIP and ERA for the week in my head-to-head money league, getting bent over for 7 earned in 3.1 innings pitched, causing his already putrid ERA to balloon to Bronn kill count levels. This man has drained the life from me, and I can’t rule this kingdom with him under my roof. Begone, peasant! And don’t return till you’ve become a man. KILL THE BOY!

valyria3.0

And what a cool scene with Tyrion and Mormont as they cruised through the rubble that was Valyria. I loved the cinematography and back and forth poetry between them. It all seemed so serene… until stone men started dropping from the sky like mounds of dragon dung. Now that Jorah has been touched with the Greyscale, how long will he survive? Will he seek treatment or keep it hidden for as long as possible, knowing if reveals it to Khaleesi, he will most likely be banished to the very place he contracted the disease. Only time will tell. I for one, am intrigued.

“Jealousy bores me. You remember what happens to people who bore me.” – Ramsay Bolton to Myranda.

Corey Kluber – Ser Kluber is 0-5 with a titanically disgraceful 5.04 ERA. Is it time to strip him of all rank and titles, forcing him to prove himself all over again? Some would say it is so. It’s possible he could be shipped off to join the Night’s Watch with one more piss poor performance, and as King, I fully support that. I rule with an iron fist! I fully expected Klubes to dominate this season, instead he’s come out limper than a eunuch at strip club. We can only pray to the “seven” for him, and hope he deciphers his multitude of issues. Great opening scene in “Kill the Boy” eh? I’m sure you thought the same thing as I, when witnessing that rump: Dude must be doing squat thrusts like a mad man! But seriously, Myranda is a flawless vixen, one I’d gladly accept onto my summer league roster.

How long will Ramsay be allowed to breathe? Will Reek slit his throat in the dark and geld him like he so dearly deserves? Will Jon Snow cut him down in the Godswood in an epic final showdown? Either way, I want him slaughtered, ASAP! And how hilarious was it when Ramsay clowned his father in asking him how he could possibly tell if his rotund wife was pregnant, or better yet, how he managed to find entry without two servants and a lantern.

“You and I both know how the world works. Too often the wicked are the wealthiest, beyond the reach of justice.” – Cersei Lannister to the High Sparrow.

Clayton Kershaw  What is the issue with the only man in the Seven Kingdoms wealthy enough to make the Lannisters grit their teeth in envy (before they went broke, of course)? A pigeon carrier recently gave me the news that Kershaw was carrying a pathetic 4.26 ERA, and my Grand Maester says Tommy John may be coming shortly. This is somber news as Kershaw is the closest thing to royalty baseball has, other than my cousin, King Felix, of course. I’m concerned. What’s up with these Sparrows? How battle tested and trained for combat can they possibly be? If Tommen ever hopes to enter the temple of his Margaery Tyrell again, he may want to have this rabble put to a quick extinction. Gods be merciful, I’d have all their throats cut like swine just for the honor of giving her a rim job. Oh, how I love thee, sweet, sweet Margaery.

    Tehol,

    Great stuff, man! Fantastic write-up. Not much to say, not much happening.

    Enjoyed watching The Physician (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2101473/) lately.

    Grey says:
    (link)

    Think Snow has to be a Targaryen, signs are too clearly pointing in that direction for it not to be…it’s most likely Benioff being backed into a corner without a sixth book to turn to and needs this puppy to be its own thing. Fun fact about Grey! Benioff and I once shared the same manager, Guymon Cassidy… Yeah, they’re doing GoT now, but Grey’s got Razzball!

    • Jvanslyke says:
      (link)

      @Grey:

      GOT can only go so far but Razball can go forever!

      As much as I love GOT, am I the only one that contemplates canceling HBO everytime they show the preview for the Rocks football show?

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        Ballers? You mean Entourage in the world of football? Yeah, I don’t know, might have promise

        • Jvanslyke says:
          (link)

          @Grey:

          the preview does have an Entourage feel. Hopefully they have a character as good as Loyd…

          I think Silicon Valley does a nice job of filling the Entourage void. 30 minute episodes with the same type of short term issues and resolution. I also enjoy Urlich more than Drama

          • Tehol Beddict says:
            (link)

            @Jvanslyke: you wonder why they haven’t made a show like this sooner.

          • Grey

            Grey says:
            (link)

            Yeah, Silicon Valley is awesome

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Grey: seems like a great idea but hard to tell from preview. drugs, hot chicks, athletes, the rock……all things I enjoy should be cool. altho that LeBron James show didnt do it for me. about the B ball player. You see that?

      what would the dialogue be like on GOT if Grey: lord of light was writing it?

        And that’s thou quoth thou!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Grey: i’d agree it has to be that way. I don’t recall if the books ever even give a hint? they certainly don’t say through all the current books. and judging how the last book ends maybe they went in a totally different direction there.

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Zeus: i tried reading again but didn’t make it through. what do you think happens to him with what we saw at end of last book

          • Steve Stevenson says:
            (link)

            @Tehol Beddict: I think something like that still goes down (Jon’s not making friends in the Watch these days) but we get some red magic a la Thoros with Beric Dondarrion from Melisandre. Hopefully with some sexytime thrown in, cuz dayum.

            • Tehol Beddict says:
              (link)

              @Steve Stevenson: pictures of that woman don’t do her justice. when I watch the show, witnessing her beautiful behind bare as the day she was born, something happens to me. I get that special old fashioned feeling….where id do anything to bone her

            (link)

            @Tehol Beddict: I think either Misandre does some red God ressurection or he wargs into ghost before he gets it. The prologue chapter spells out how that’s possible.

            Been unemployed for a few months so I did a reread

            • Tehol Beddict says:
              (link)

              @Zeus: nothing wrong with that. i should reread.

              a warg, eh? interesting. I hope he survives.

              • Zeus says:
                (link)

                @Tehol Beddict: just reread the prologue of a dance with dragons with that in mind. It makes sense

                  @Zeus: I’m on it.

    • Buddo Chezuski says:
      (link)

      @Grey: Supposedly Bennioff has been filled on how the story unfolds from GRRM himself! So they know the proper direction to take it (I hope). Will be weird for GRRM that his epic story will be told on TV before he can finish the books

      • Tehol Beddict says:
        (link)

        @Buddo Chezuski: yea . Extremely odd. I mean dude just has writers block but he should already know direction. Writers have changed direction amyway. Little pieces here and there. Hopefully not too much altho that could makes books interesting if he changes it

  5. Zeus says:
    (link)

    So you’re on board now with Jon Snow being a Targaeryan? I’d like it to not be so but they’re clearly alluding to it and that’s the apocryphal story on how they got the job. George asked who Jons mother was and they got it right.

    Thanks for throwing the reverse mojo onto Kluber.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Zeus: that certainly seems to be what they’re saying. totally on board tho they could always throw something else at us

    (link)

    Tehol, this might be one of your best write ups! Great references and you strung them all the way through, SOLID WORK LAD! I’m right there with you on the whole Khaleesi Dragon issue. They’ve got to be super pissed for being stuck down there. Maybe once Tyrion gets there and he becomes sort of Dragon Whisper and rides those F**kers to Kings Landing and takes out Cersi….. ( and that’s why I don’t write) Harper write up is a Classic, thankfully Harper & Vogt are carrying me while Starsburg continues to punish me for acquiring him for a little Moistasskiss, Apparently he’s going to punish me until he the trade evens out.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Teddy Heater: Thank you, SER!!!! what a compliment. Tyrion the dragon rider– now that would be something to behold. strasburg is either hurt, finished, or will turn back to his old semi-solid self I’m guessing. that gives a 33 percent chance, which i suppose is about Stannis’s odds of living through the season

      • Shawn of the Livid says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Crap I just remembered an old favorite (published 1990)

        “Hyperion” by Dan Simmons: Publishers description:

        On the world called Hyperion, beyond the law of the Hegemony of Man, there waits the creature called the Shrike. There are those who worship it. There are those who fear it. And there are those who have vowed to destroy it. In the Valley of the Time Tombs, where huge, brooding structures move backward through time, the Shrike waits for them all. On the eve of Armageddon, with the entire galaxy at war, seven pilgrims set forth on a final voyage to Hyperion seeking the answers to the unsolved riddles of their lives. Each carries a desperate hope–and a terrible secret. And one may hold the fate of humanity in his hands.

        The Shrike is one of the best villains ever! Fantastic read my friend. If you get through the thousands of pages I’ve already suggested and are wanting more, Hyperion is well worth a look. Hell, Hyperion is worth a read right now, I’m going to start reading it again tomorrow. Relive the magic!

        Sweet articles this year btw, I’ve read every one of them so far. Keep em coming!

          (link)

          @Shawn of the Livid: Thank you, Ser. i’ll give that a try but I’m currently balls deep in way of kings and that means ill have to read 2nd one immediately after hahah. I will put these in my que tho.

          Another buddy of mine on here, Sal, gave me a couple interesting options as well. You guys are legends in my book. its been hard for me to find good ones doing my own research for some reason.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @B the Esq.: 10 team is obviously shallow but I still prefer C-mart to the rest of them. Hutchinson has finally shown us some hot flashes…pause. and Gonzalez is solid but again, I like C-Mart.

      • B the Esq. says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: agreed. Would love to stream that spot….rest of my rotation is very good…but due to certain stupid people in the league we have a 4 transaction per week limit.

        • Tehol Beddict says:

          @B the Esq.: ahhhh, the old transaction limit. i have that as well. think its 5. still good enough to handle your business, Ser. I have faith in you

    12 team, H2H, 6X6 (K’s). I would have to drop Folty to activate Greg Holland from DL, Would you keep Folty and his K’s and drop Holland my only RP? or roll with Holland?

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @Happyharry: Son of the Harpy, hard to drop Holland but if you’re simply punting saves suppose its ok. one would think you could trade the dude for something of value. maybe a two for one on your side so u can keep folty. thats what i would try to do if thats the direction u plan on taking or trade folty for a mid level closer

    T— no lie, went straight to comment form for this one cuz segura hit the DL…so i must ask you, who have the 7 gods chosen to replace him for the time being? the great Kang of Qarth is available, as is b-craw, yunel, and the fallen prince of dorne, danny sanny.

    fear not though, i will read your column. Take Heed!

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @Qbert: Ser Qbert!!!! By the Gods, I’ve missed you friend! I have a strange affection for Brandon Crawford. Has real power. Id go there but Kang of Qarth is intriguing as well, tho not much production. last few games. id go B-Craw the Merciless.

      • Qbert says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Craw is on that go dumshit like bobby shmurda. he’s got pop and i wish we got points for his glove. i might have to lean his way as kang is yawnstipating sometimes. on the bright side, i’ve stashed correa. and i hope his call up mimics this impending dany/tyrion partnership…pure magic

          @Qbert: you Ser, DESTROYED the comment section today! Triple #Kudos for you today and may the 7 watch over you and B-Craw

    In a keeper league which side do you prefer?

    Goldie or Stras and Dee Gordon?

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @Bobby: Goldy, baby!! the man is a top 5 overall pick for next 3/5 years. an absolute hog. pull the trigger

      • Steven says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Thanks. That was my thought as well. Prob try and move Reyes once he comes back and Correa gets called up(hopefully after Super 2 date here soon).

        We get a total of 6 years of contracts we can use(1 on 6 players or 3 on 2, etc.), and unless I can swing something for Trout or Felix, I’m looking at a combination of those years on Donaldson, Encarnacion, Salazar, and either Reyes/Correa. Will be sitting a lot better than I was the beginning of this year when I kept: Zunino, Machado, Calhoun, R. Castillo, T. Walker, and Paxton.

          @Steven: Mos def. mos def. yep, thats the right call

  19. Steven says:

    I have a chance to use my #1 waiver wire on Correa in a 10 team AL only keeper Yahoo league. I already have Reyes. Should I use the waiver, or wait and hope someone good from NL gets traded to the AL at deadline?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Steven: USE the waiver, mos def. at worst you can trade Reyes or him going forward. totally worth it bruh. someone will overpay for him if you want to dump. MOVE

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:

      @Steven: somebody better than correa in keepers ain’t getting traded, unless you think like hamels or papelbon are better.

    grade the trade and which side are you on

    f.liriano for vmart

    • huberto PEREZ says:

      @huberto PEREZ:

      is a 10 team h2h points league trying to buy low

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @huberto PEREZ: B-, I like Liriano quite a bit and V-mart’s knee problems are troublesome but I’d imagine he turns it on making it a decent deal for you. May the 7 bless you, my son

    Totally agree on the sand snakes! Can we say that was possibly the worst scene ever on game of thrones? They couldn’t find hot chicks for those roles? Or at least ones who can act? The monologue was especially disgraceful. This was the only scene in 4.5 years in which I have been bounced out of the show and back into the reality of my mother’s basement due to horrid acting. They look to be the JarJar Binks of GOT…..

    On a totally related note. Xander Bogaerts- disgrace? I see all sorts of questions in the comments section about whether or not he should be dropped and the answer seems to always be “no”. Am I missing something here? Is this guy better than I realize? He is taking down my OBP/SLG team much like the sand snakes took down that episode!

    Respect!

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @gordon shumway: Greetings, Ser Gordo!!!! definitely the worst scene of all time and one my fave commentators pointed it out to me. GodsAwful! Yea total trash. probably wish they just axed that whole story line. or maybe they surprise us going forward….. Jar Jar hahahaah

      Bruh, I totally just dropped Bogaerts. that dude has been absolutely torturing me for 2 seasons now. I was so sold. but he has no power and no speed and now, no average. so yea, feel free to drop.

      Great commentary. Bless you

      • Gordon Shumway says:

        @Tehol Beddict: Thank you for your kind words sir… after having read your response, I checked out these girls again… give the asian girl another shot.. she appears to be quite palatable in real life, but they somehow uglied her up for the show. And yes, you are right.. Melisandre is the Queen of Filth… and by Filth, I mean Yes Please!

        I also appreciate your unkind words on Xander.. he needs to be Bogarted off my team ASAP… was it the sexy “X” in his name that swayed my vision for so long? I may be able to trade him with Paxton for Castro… is this any better than just dumping him like so many exes after the bjs became less frequent or should I just pick up the flavor of the week and play shortstop roulette?

        Peace to to the Gods and the Earths….

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Gordon Shumway: ahhhhhh, the sand snakes. what would it be like to have them all at once? probably quite deadly.

          The Queen of filth, her new nickname. she is an absolute gem and I worship her every night…..trading him with Pax may be a little heavy. id rather just play the hottie of the week OR u could stick it out with him a couple more weeks. he should at least hit for decent average. maybe.

          Again, thank you for killing the comment section this week. I shall recommend you for a spot in the Kings guard at once.

    about kershaw, who is the master with this info about tommy john? how serious/likely? he was offered to me as part of a trade for stanton or harper but now you made me nervous.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Glenn: I’m guessing he’s fine. its just quite strange as I’ve never really seen this from him before. the ks are still there so it should be all good……I think

      • Glenn says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: we’ve seen him in playoffs..he is human. I was looking at ks.
        My team is raking with power (Stanton, Harper, Frazier, marte) and sucking it with pitching (samardzija, Tyson Ross, smyly, iwakuma). So may do straight up Stanton for Kershaw.

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Glenn: if you’re with it, I’m with it. Works for me if u that stacked on offense

        • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
          (link)

          @Glenn: STL has messed him up in something like 3/4th of their playoff games last 3 years.
