There’s embarrassment and then there’s having to cover in detail a fantasy baseball league you’re nearly dead last in. So begins our first monthly update on the in house dynasty league “The RazzNasty”. For those of you that are new here, “The RazzNasty” is a Razzball founded dynasty league made up of Razzball writers, readers, commenters, and Methodists! It’s a 16 team roto with semi-weekly adds/drops via blind auction. We have 30 man MLB rosters and 10 man minor league rosters. Since we last updated you in early March there’s been a flurry of activity including trades, wire adds, a second commissioner switch, and a banana or two in the tailpipe. So yes it’s more or less high stakes Mario Kart.

With a 20 point lead founding member Mentok sits atop the table. With a core of Anthony Rizzo, Jake Arrieta, Neil “Mickey Mantle” Walker, a good pen, and  solid depth across the squad, he should stay in the mix. He’s immediately proceeded by frequent commenter Shill Team 6 in second, The Hippos managed by RCL Czar Matt Truss in third, new commish Yes Cheese in fourth, Razzball’s very own villan “Ra’zbhal” Al Ghul in fifth, followed by the J-FOH managed Dr. Gonzo ESQ in sixth, while the top half of the standings are rounded out by former Prospector Mike, and first year manager Raskals. The remaining 8 are made up of sleeping giants like last season’s runner up Hannibal Montana, under performing squads like the Smokey managed Smoke Show, and prospect heavy rebuilders like yours truly. It’s sure to be an up and down fight all season with probably ten or so teams in the mix. Now let’s take a look at some of the transactions.

aaaaa

Trades

Since we last updated you a handful of trades have taken place.

Deeper Data Collection trades: Matt Carpenter, Zack Greinke, Mark Teixeira, and Desmond Jennings To Smoke Show for: Andrew Benintendi, Sean Manaea, Xander Bogaerts, and Dilson Herrera.

This trade had been in the works for awhile, as I continued my rebuild and Smokey turned some of his high end prospects into win now talent. It’s yet to pay dividends for Smoke Show, but it’s early.

Nightpandas trades: David Price, Adam Jones, Collin McHugh, and Drew Storen To Hannibal Montana for: Brett Phillips, Anthony Alford, Francis Martes, Dalton Pompey, Willson Contreras.

Nightpandas commits to rebuilding while Hannibal clears out his prospect talent to upgrade his already stacked squad. The level of minor league talent headed NP’s way should not be ignored, as all 5 of these players have prospect pedigree with Phillips, Martes, and Contreras looking like potential impact fantasy players. Alford is raw and a little further away, while Pompey has lost some of his shine following an up and down (literally) 2015. Hannibal’s side is easy to appreciate as he adds an ace, a top 30 outfielder, a reliable starter, and well, Storen, a demoted closer who’s since been dropped.

Hannibal Montana trades: Michael Brantley To Deeper Data Collection for: Todd Frazier

I’m a big fan of Brantley, and with my window probably a year away I was willing to move the older Frazier for Brantley a player with across the board production who should be a veteran presence in my virtual clubhouse as the youngsters matriculate. Hannibal adds a powerful corner bat to pair with Adrian Gonzalez, Eric Hosmer, and Evan Longoria.

Nightpandas trades: Chris Carter, David Ortiz, and Fernando Rodney To Shill Team 6 for: Zack Wheeler, Keon Broxton, Joey Rickard, Trent Clark

This is your classic dynasty trade of rebuilding team unloading older players for young MLBers and prospect(s). Shill upgrades his power and adds some saves from an archer with a tilted brim. Conversely NP continues his rebuild adding a high ceiling arm in Wheeler, a high end hitting spec in the low minors in Trent Clark, maybe the surprise of the season in Joey Rickard, and a high minors player with a speed/power profile in Broxton.

    How much would you bid on Yoan Moncada in a salary cap league?

    It is a $260 total cap, 12 teams where contracts work that the first 2 years whatever you pay in FAAB is his contract and then he’s signed $5 per year after.

    So if you win Moncada for $6 then he’s $6 for 2016 and 2017, then $5 per year plus the current salary. So at $6, 2 years would be $16, 3 years $21, 4 years $26, etc

    Thanks!

    Do you think Asdrubal Cabrera has a shot at a good season in that park/lineup?

    I own Crawford and Starlin Castro but Castro is at 2B.

    Should I swap Crawford with Cabrera?
    Otherwise it’s Rendon or Domingo Santana but I want to wait a bit on both of them more than Crawford.

    12 team h2h 5 cats + OBP

    suggestions?

    • RecklessDriver says:
      (link)

      @RecklessDriver:
      Oh, I was thinking Drury too.. because he will be 2b 3b of eligible if he gets a few more at second.

      Thanks

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @RecklessDriver: I’d say it depends what you need, you’ll get more power from Crawford eventually, nothing in his batted ball profile seems out of whack in terms of hard/med/soft contact though his IFFB% is way up and his HR/FB is down.Might be because he’s pressing, but he’s a .250 hitter to begin with so the margin for error is small.

      Asdrubal will be more limited in upside but should give decent average and okay counting stats. His OBP isn’t as good though. It’s a toss up.

      Drury has the biggest upside of the bunch, but he doesn’t walk much and that paired with Castro could drain on your OBP quite a bit. If it’s dynasty I go Drury. Re-Draft, I go Cabrera.

        @Ralph Lifshitz: since last year’s 21 homers were completely out of nowhere (10 was previous high, and it’s been 3.5 years before last year), i’d take the under on 16 for this one (and would’ve said this in preseason as well)

  4. Tweak says:
    (link)

    Made a move in my dynasty recently to continue my rebuild and still thinking about the deal. Wondering what you all think:

    I moved:
    Strasburg, Alex Gordon, Ben Zobrist

    for:
    Urias, Glasnow, Josh Bell, Rendon

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Tweak: Wow, I love that deal for you. Zobrist is his twilight, Gordon is easily replaceable, and Strasburg should be more than replaced by both Glasnow and Urias within a year. Bell should be up this year and he’s raking at AAA Indy. Then on top of all this you get Rendon an excellent rebound candidate who’s struggling a bit.

      You murdered this trade.

  5. Yescheese says:

    Great recap Ralph. I fully expect the next article to be Hannibal Rising… What a squad. So much SP depth. Mentok and Shill are surprise contenders. When i look at Mentok’s squad I think “Justin Bour? Marcus Semien? Joe Mauer? What is this??”

    Dynasties can be built in all sorts of interesting ways…

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Yescheese: Yeah, it’s funny you just need contributors across the board and he has that. Hannibal’s going to be tough to beat he rose two spots while writing this.

      You should be in the mix as well, you have one of the stronger offenses with a good rotation core with Cole, J-Fer, Zimm, and good pen depth. A couple of starters could put you over the top.

      BTW are you glad you didn’t move Wil Myers right now?

    Nice article, is there a way we can have a link to see the league. Could then look at rosters etc. I am new to dynasty and would be interesting to see what how my league compares to this one. I have mentioned my team before. I am I a 12 team dynasty which is 7×7 (BB, XBH, QS, HLD) and is H2H Rather than root. I took over a team in week 1 and so was part of the draft or Milb draft. I have done some re jigging of the team via trades and WW pickups.

    We are allowed 6 adds in a week. I have been trying to stream the odd pitcher (Tillman is in that spot, although I am unsure whether Latos/Colon aren’t streamers too). I have also been adding RP for holds as and when necessary and Bats for SB or any other needs dependent upon matchup.

    Wonder what you thought of the roster if you had time? Any obvious areas that I could improve ? The calibre of player available on the WW is Beltran, Werth, Aoki, Markakis, Kazmir, Leake, Dickey, Bucholz. All the most recent call ups, Snell, Berrios, Manaea are owned in the ‘farm’ system.

    Hey Ralph, in a 16-team dynasty (OBP), I have a nice glut of OF in my 12-man MiLB farm. Zimmer, Meadows, Tapia, Quinn, Renfroe. I have two SP in Taillon and Tate.

    Been reading a little bit on Cody Reed from CIN. I love his proximity to the majors. Is it worth shooting off someone like Meadows for Reed? Or nah?

    Feel like pretty soon the world is going to turn its eye on Reed and he’s going to blow up nd I want to try to sneakily buy him before he hits that mark.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:

      @The JoGarza: Meadows might be the best hitter on your farm. Dump Quinn for Cody Reed. I agree Reed looks great and could be a useful fantasy pitcher within a few months.

    Ralph-just wanted to get your thoughts on a brutal trade that went down this week. Tolleson for Brantley and Hahn. It is a 4×4 HR, RBI, SB and AVG, Wins, Saves, Era and whip. The guy who had Brantley obviously needed saves but are you kidding. I should be contacting tthe former Brantley owner immediately to see if I have anything he wants and see if I can get that kind of a sweet deal don’t you agree! Thanks it’s always interesting to see what deals are going down.

    Hey Ralph, do you know of any lower key rookie hitters that have performed well a bit more under the radar, outside of the big name guys would be more widely available? We have to start a rookie hitter, and I came into the year with Olivera and Naquin, and our waivers open up tomorrow. Aledmys is there (sure), as is Hazelbaker (no thanks) to give you an idea, but do you know of any others I should look up?

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:

      @GoJays: There really aren’t any lower key guys, maybe Rafael Ortega, Brandon Drury (not really low key), Carlos Sanchez, Adam Duvall, Colin Walsh.

      Hope that helps, I like Diaz better than everyone but Drury.

          • GoJays says:
            (link)

            @Ralph Lifshitz: Drury is available – I admit i didn’t know anything about him. What makes you think he has staying power? Should he continue to get playing time? If he is going to struggle to get starts, then I’m not sure he’s a bit upgrade over Naquin and I’ll prioritize my waiver picks elsewhere. If i’m going to try and claim either him or Diaz, my hope is that they’re more than just a short term play (though I know it’s a bit of a crapshoot).

      @Birdmann: I live that Steven Wright add (Diaz too). He’s better than people think, knuckleballers take years to blossom.

      It’s also funny you’re missing Carrasco right now, which hurts but the other way to look at it is you have reinforcements coming down the line. Couple that with Turner’s impending callup and maybe Wong snapping out his slump you could get better without making a single move.

    Hey Ralph, I asked a similar question on your last post but I doubt you’ll check it since this is newer. Just curious on your thoughts on Buxton, have you been able to watch him play much this season? Do you think he lives up to his hype later this season or will he toil in the minors until Sept?

    You have a good grasp on the up-and-comers, just wondering if he’s a buy low right now and when you think he might be back up.

    Thanks

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Steve: He’s a definite buy low, I always thought he was rushed, needed another year of seasoning. I’ve seen a little of him here and there. Definite buy low guy. If he gets himself right in AAA he could be back up mid-summer and make an impact.

      @Malicious Phenoms: I like the prep guys this year, Groome and Rutherford. I’m sort of blah on Ray, and think highly of Senzel. He’s certainly more highly touted as a draft prospect than Bader was. I’m going to go more into depth on this Wednesday. My plan is to do a draft intro this week and a mock before the draft.

      In dynastys I have a feeling this international class is going to outshine the incoming draft prospects outside Groome and Rutherford.

    Hey Ralphie-boy,
    I’m in a very deep, 16 team, mixed, redraft league. Everyone major-leaguer who can hold a bat is pretty much sewed-up. Of course I’m looking for minor league prospect hitters who may be up to the show in June or before. The hard part for me is finding the opportunity for playing time on the majors teams. Oh, I should mention the following minors players are already rostered: J Peraza, Mike Zunino, J P Crawford, T Anderson, Buxton, Judge, A J Reed, Joey Gallo, Y Moncada, A Bregman, L Brinson, J Profar, and B Swihart.
    Any suggested names to watch or speculate on would be helpful. TIA.

          @Malicious Phenoms: Yeah I wouldn’t keep those guys with the others available

    Ok, So I took your advice and dropped Zunino, and Smith for Garrett and Hader. I cut Aiken for Lazarito, Rutherford was gone already..THANKS for the advice, much appreciated..

    I will keep an eye on Zunino as he has been hitting very well in AAA, but I have this feeling he is another quad A guy.

    Also your thoughts on Mallex Smith, he has elite speed, what do you think of him?

    Cheers,

    Hey man,

    Just one more quick question.

    I am holding Trevor May in hopes he takes over the closer gig in Minnesota.

    I have Kenley, Robertson, Osuna, Rosnethal and Cishek as closers now.

    Thoughts on me cutting May for Groome.

    Cheers,
