So it’s Saturday, you ain’t got nothing better to do so slide on over to DraftKings.  I mean what ekse could you be doing that will take the time it takes to set-up a lineup.  Mowing the lawn, really it will still be there in 10 mins.  Take the kids to school, come on man there ain’t no skool on Saturday.  I am out of other stuff that may be going on to be honest.  We here at Razzball give you all types of daily tools, Stream-O-Nator and Hitter-Tron, I mean what else do you want?  How about a long boring diatribe by a dude form NJ?  Well if you said yes to the diatribe, first go get a dictionary and make sure you know what that means. Second go to the garage or work shop grab a lump hammer and smash yourself over the hand with it.  I am boring and what I am going to talk about usually starts with por and ends with an n.  So enjoy the weekends’ palate of yummy baseball goodness.  Oh and good luck.

Anibal Sanchez ($8,400) – Has been a good mix of unlucky and bad, which is like a nice knit sweater from anyone that wears way too much make-up and reeks of cheap perfume.  The K’s are there and the ERA is hovering where it should be just the W’s aren’t.

Dustin Pedroia ($4,800) – The “Dirt Pig” has been heating up like the little convectional oven that he is.  Not like one of those industrial ones, more like ones at the gas station where you heat up a burger or those nachos.  Multi-hit games in 4 of last 6 and career wise don’t get me started, career .522 hitter in 27 at-bats vs Brandon Morrow.  Those hits aren’t empty singles either as he has 2 of them are HRs.

Dan Straily ($7,800) –  Let’s be honest, Houston sucks at swinging things with handles so playing the odds is always a good thing I have heard when playing to win money. Houston also strikes out a ton which also gets you points.  I am by far no genius but he looks like a great second option for a P slot.

Dayan Viciedo ($5,100) – Buster Poindexter has him on his team and he is only know for taking guys for one thing.  If you don’t know who that is you suck and we are no longer friends and definitely a negative swipe on Tinder is coming .

Brandon Moss ($4,000) – Buying Moss for 4 bills, doesn’t seem like a frugal idea.  So says my grandma as she tries to read over my shoulder.  She also crop dusted all the way across the room before leaving it so there is that.  Moss has the duality thing with multi-positions.  Take advantage and stack up on the savings.

Marlon Byrd ($3,500) – Bronson is hittable, and more hittable then we normally wanna hit him.  Byrd career wise is slashing .370/.393/.667 against him.  So add that up plus a cheap value let you stack someplace else.  Quality 3rd OF’er for a cheap price with a good history against the opposing Sp.  That’s wifey material.

I Am Only Happy When It Rains

The forecast looks blah for the mid-Atlantic so grab players wisely that will be playing in the Baltimore-KC match-up.  Go to the aquarium in Balt instead or go visit Omar’s crib.
