This was a yearly tradition until I didn’t do it last year, so I’ve decided to bring it back and make it a semi-annual tradition.  Semi-annual traditions are better anyway.  They’re not as stuffy as annual traditions, being run by a timetable and whatnot.  They come and go as they please.  ESPN Fantasy Baseball is the number one result in Google when you search fantasy baseball.  Yay, for them.  But what are people searching Google for when they find Razzball?  Since it’s a holiday, I decided to break away from the normal schedule of 2015 fantasy baseball rookies and look at exactly what people do search Google for when they find us.  These are all queries straight from our analytics.  Last year, we had our biggest year.  Over 15 million people found us.  (I think about 14.9 million found us with the search query “What is SAGNOF?”  Neverthehoo…)  That’s a big Happy Thanksgiving to you from all of us here at Razzball.  On a side note, I was hospitalized the last two nights with a kidney stone. Why has no comic book hero ever faced a 4-foot tall villain named Kidney Stone?  A millimeter-sized one is incapacitating, forget a dwarf-sized one.  As I lay in the hospital, I thought about what a lousy way to spend Thanksgiving.  Then Cougs posted in the comments the other day what was happening with me, and I realized this wasn’t a bad way to spend Thanksgiving.  This was spending it with some of those that I am most grateful for.  You.  Oh my God, go to the hospital for two days and suddenly you sound reborn into a sap.  I’m fine, out of the hospital now, but I might be a bit touch and go until Monday.  Anyway, here are 20 actual Google searches for people who found Razzball and my answers to their Google searches:

1. Is Hunter Pence an ostrich? – No, he’s a Gangly Manbird from the species ganglion homosapien aviary.  Though, Gangly Manbird (there is no change in the plural spelling) and ostriches share 99.99% of DNA.  The .01 difference allows Pence to grow an afro without getting a perm.

2. Is Jake Smolinski married? – Since with modern technology I’m able to search IP addresses for all search terms and I’m Facebook friends with Edward Snowden, I just wanted to say I know that Jake Smolinski’s girlfriend was the one who searched this.  Suzy, if I may, please talk to Jake rather than searching about his martial status online.  The key to any relationship is trust and not relying on what you find in Google about future partners.  At least that’s the answer I got from Dear Abby when I searched about dating a married man.  Good luck!

3. What does Manny Machado write in the dirt? – In 2003, when Manny was eleven years old, his math teacher said to him, “I want you to write on the board five million times, ‘I will not forget a number two pencil.'”  Of course, he doesn’t have time to write on a board anymore, so he made a deal with said teacher to continue his punishment in the dirt between pitches.

4. What does Peavy’s baseball glove say? – “Do you think I’m too tan?”

5. Where can I get a funny fantasy baseball team name? — You can try our fantasy baseball team name generator or just go with an obscure, overweight player plus “Ate My Baby.”  For instance, Rich Garces Ate My Baby.

6. Why did Lou Gehrig call me the luckiest man on earth? – Okay, this is tough one, but I don’t want to shy away from tough questions.  What I think happened here is there was a man named Lou Gearig, and he heard Lou Gehrig say, “Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth.”  So, naturally, Lou Gearig was like, “Who is this Lou Gehrig guy and why does he think I’m lucky?”  What he should’ve Googled was, “Are all Lou Gehrigs, no matter the spelling, lucky?”  Then he’d find his answer.  That answer is yes.

7. All apologies, but what else should I be? – More forgiving, perhaps.  Tolerant of other races.  Skinnier.  A chair for your dog.  I could go on, let’s start there.

8. What is a Compton curse? – Honkey.

9. What does Jedd Gyorko do with his mouth? – That’s easy, he sucks!

10. Sorry doesn’t walk the dog? – Nor does Sorry butter the biscuit.  Sorry’s a real lazy pain in the you know what!

11. Why does Sergio Romo lick his fingers? – Because he bleeds BBQ sauce.

12. You got Rick Schroder rolled! — You just did again.

13. Mom next door from Alcides with 36 Double D? – The Napolis moved next door to Alcides?  This is actually news to me.  You’re learning me something!

14. Is Joe Nathan Jewish? – No, because then he’d be Joe Hebrew National.

15. Bigger bust, B.J. Upton or Kate Upton? – Tough call, and I’ve never seen Justin Verlander posed in a mirror with B.J., but I’m gonna go Kate.

16. Is Wong the new right? – This sounds like a deep philosophic question, which I love.  I love, love, love when people think deeply on Razzball.  I’m gonna say Wong is the new right, and two Wongs make a more right.

17. What is donkeycorn in Arabic? – Since I’m not sure how many of you can read Arabic, phonetically it is: heehawgobble.

18. Can you do whatever with Coco Crisp? – You can, but you should ask him first.

19. Does Dan Uggla wear woman’s shirts? – Yes, and at one point he grew out his hair, and people kept thinking he was Greta Van Susteren.

20. How does Grey keep his mustache so full? – That I can’t share with you.  Now go spend time with your family!  Happy Thanksgiving!

    Welcome back, young fella – glad you’re on the mend.

    I hate to kill the buzz, but I will be enjoying Razzball and the baseball silly season a little more than normal, for there is a dark cloud over the great summer game in these parts…

      @SteveNZ: Thought he’d been knocked into a coma, didnt realise it was life threatening. Terrible news.

      I follow cricket somewhat in England, looks like they need to improve helmet protection now. I remember some players used to wear ear guards built into the helmet, would that have protected him?

      • SteveNZ says:
        (link)

        @Swfcdan: Not in this case, as he was struck just behind and below his ear, underneath where the base of the helmet is. The problem has been that it is difficult to protect that part of the head without restricting the batsman’s head and neck movements – but I imagine all the helmet manufacturers will be taking another look at things now.

        • Swfcdan says:
          (link)

          @SteveNZ: Sounds like there might be a way to produce a helmet with protection all the way around the head, something they are looking at. Definately worth persuing after that.

          http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-30206381

          Read one cricket writer say there won’t need to be a rule to outlaw bouncers, because who would bowl one after that!? I guess thats true for the forseeable future. Horrible tragedy and he was a big talent too, hate to think how the quickie who hit him is feeling now…

          • SteveNZ says:
            (link)

            @Swfcdan: Yeah, I tend to think that banning the bouncer would not be the right thing to do.

            There are a lot of spooked and confused cricketers down here right now, that’s for sure. Australia are supposed to play India in a test next week, and no one even knows if it will go ahead, or if any of the Australians will even want to play etc. I think there were three Aussie test players actually on the field when Hughes was hit so I can’t imagine they’ll fancy it much.

            • Swfcdan says:
              (link)

              @SteveNZ: Yeah gonna take some getting over. Sounds like the tour should be cancelled, no Aussies really gonna wanna play after what happened. They all must know him well.

      @SteveNZ: Thanks, SteveNZ! You wanna know how closed off the US from the rest of the world? I thought you linked to a site that was abbreviating Shake My Head dot com. So, what’s going on there? A rugby scandal?

      • SteveNZ says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Nah man. A bit more serious than that. Well known own international cricketer got hit in the head by a ball while batting and died yesterday. Link is to Sydney Morning Herald. Assume the story is still all over the site.

          • SteveNZ says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Yeah, it’s just awful. It’s happened before but not often and never to a player of his prominence.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Wow, it happened before? Is that ball (what’s its name?) harder than a baseball?

              • SteveNZ says:
                (link)

                @Grey: It’s just called a cricket ball. Never held a major league baseball so I’m guessing but I’d say they’re about the same. Cricket ball might be slightly harder.

                • Grey

                    @Grey: The injury that he suffered is very rare. Apparently the medical literature indicates it has only been previously reported 100 times before – and only once before has it been caused by a cricket ball.

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Grey: yep, but really, without insurance i’d have to be pretty messed up to even allowed myself to be brought to hospital. Nose breaking doesn’t count (i’ve certainly done that at least 7 times since age 10). Last time i saw a doctor was the last 3 months of insurance (it was basically free) when i had a cracked rib after new year’s wrestling episode where i threw myself down some stairs and landed top left rib first, for a cracked rib, which sounds to me worse than a broken rib, but it’s much better)

                @Grey: with stones (if that’s what happened, seen clues below), i’d be too. bleeding out yr dick isn’t cool. (i don’t know what medical procedure it is that is needed other than just letting it go through (in clear pain) but it’s needed i’m sure)

                • goodfold2 says:
                  (link)

                  @goodfold2: from more comments below, just what do the doctors do for this (other than tell you stones is the problem in place, rather than scarier unknown stuff)? If/when I get this i’d rather be able to not get lit for a bunch of money AND be in pain for awhile if possible.

                • Grey

    Wikipedia says kidney stones are also called renal calculus, which sounds nerdily dirty. I guess you can add that to the Razzball google searches. Feel better and triple up on the cranberry today.

    Guy at work once passed out from stone pain. He wasn’t the most well liked, told people we should have kicked him and took his cell made calls to phone sex numbers that he would later have to try and explain to his wife. All that being said, good to see you back and have a nice Thanksgiving.

    Good to see you back fella. Only time ive had a CT scan is for orbital cellulitis resulting from cynisitis, which led to me needing an emergency eye operation. Yeah not nice but im fine now.

        Nope, I confirm Royce’s response. At least the ‘hemar’ which actually should be homar. Quick joke for any Arabic speakers in razzball.com land. The donkey in Sudan is like solid gold in ‘merica. So, what is another name for the donkey cart in Arabic? Homar-cedes. Homarcedes – as in donkey (homar) and cedes the last part of mercedes, get it. It’s better if you understand a little Arabic and better if you pronounce homar rolling the r like a middle-easterner!

    Had my “first” stone this past July… 4-5mm. Do you get the joy of walking around with some thread hanging from your manlyness that is tied to a 16″ tube you will later get to retrieve? Man, those were some good times! I’d recommend about 8-12 vicodin and a warm shower. And pull real slow but steady.

    If I ever have another, I’m having the offending kidney removed. Much sympathy for your condition.

    Also, twas my first season Razzballin. Finished second to my brother who referred me here. We were both promptly evicted from the league by the crack-headed commissioner. Good thing I never paid my dues, I guess. Thanks for the good advice and of course, the entertaining presentation…

    Seems like a lot of guys have had kidney stones (kidney stoners?) from the comments, better eat less kidneys or peaches and plums whole I guess ha.

    Some baseball chat eh, enough talk about illnesses. Baez or Bogaerts next year, who you higher on? And long term? Both could be dodgy but could be very valuable at a crappy position (SS), especially with their improving lineups. Real sleepers for me next year.

      Bogaerts…For next year and long term…

      • Swfcdan says:

        @Grey: Wow. That a big kudos to Bogey or you just down on Baez?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Bogaerts seems like a better all around hitter at this point… Baez might be lucky to hit .210 next year…

          • Swfcdan says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Baez could smash 25+ bombs though…(devils advocate). I hope bogey outperforms him mind, only have him anyway. Just feel Baezs potential to go nuts is greater.

    A brief rumor emerged that the Indians were interested in Chase headley. A quick call by the Front office to his agent and the Indians beat writer goes on record the next day to say:

    “chase headley too expensive, Indians looking at Kendrys Morales and Chris Denorfia.”

    Glad you’re on the mend! On the fantasy side of things…who do like better at 3b for 2015? Frazier or Donaldson? What a steal for the Blue Jays! Am I missing something here?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      They’re likely very close… I’m not willing to go on record yet, but I’d probably lean slightly to Frazier…

      • Boomer19 says:
        (link)

        Yeah it’s a tight one now. Blue jays are putting together a solid lineup providing everyone stays healthy. I do like Frazier too although he’s not a 20 steal guy in my mind.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Nah, totally… Though he is likely a 12-steal guy, and Donaldson’s only a 7-ish one

      So, how was it?

      • nick the dick says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Doode it was so sick. They each did about a half hour and Big Daddy was the best, he hasnt lost a step, dancing all around, swooning the ladies during Smooth Operator, even did a split at the end. Black Sheep was suprisingly good and even did some new stuff off an album he did with Jirobi from Tribe and it was real dope. Slick Rick was okay but he looked and sounded a bit old, Rakim was real good and did all the classics but a bit too much stopping to let the audience so the lyrics, I prob screamed more of his verses than he said. Lyte was cool cuz she had a live drummer which was nice. Public Enemy was pretty damn good. EPMD was easily one of the best they absolutely killed it. Then they let DJ Scratch go off on the turntables for a good 10 minutes and he was so amazing it was one of my favorite parts. All in all it was an awesome show, every classic song was done.

            @Grey: yeah man, they were great. Them and Kane were by far the best. Them letting DJ Scratch go off too made their set just amazing.

    How’s the pee pee pebbles?

    Lemons are really good. Water is really important as well.

    200lbs should drink 100 ounces of water per day.

    So, I am guessing that you should be drinking at least 60 oz/day…

    Be well.

    Grey, I like this deal but wanted to get your thoughts. I get a $3 AJ Pollock for $4 Henderson Alvarez. Ottoneu SABR points. Alvarez much more valuable in this format bc he’s an extreme groundballer with a very low HR/9. Top 40-50 pitcher even without the K’s. But Pollock looks like he could be for real and it’s hard to get starting hitters at that low of a cost. What do you think?
