It’s the end of the beginning today on the Razz pod, as we begin our ascent into the Top 100 Starters for 2019 fantasy baseball. We hit on the aces, we hit on the former aces you shouldn’t draft, we hit on the tiers Grey is targeting, and we talk about ourselves a lot. It’s beautiful, it’s madness, it’s a podcast about 50 pitchers, 29 of them are headed to the DL, the other 21 are coming off the DL. Oops!!! I said DL, pardon me, injury list! Anyway, we talk the top 50 pitchers and a ton of draft strategy. It’s the latest episode of the Razzball Podcast. Bee-T-Dubs, don’t forget to checkout the new Razzball shirts over on Rotowear.com!

    Hearing the gushing for trout on the podcast made me really want him since I’ve never had the pleasure.
    In a 10 team 5OF league would you trade stanton, puig, and wheeler for trout and wade davis?
    Would this even get it done?

      Grey says:

      I’d take Trout, wouldn’t get done, prolly

        @Grey: I’ve got him for $11 in my NL only keeper leauge, $260 for 23 players. I guess I need to let him go.

    Debating Keepers, the number next to the player is the round penalty to keep them. Need seven of the following:
    Arenado 1
    Benintendi 8
    Josh Hader 14
    Snell 15
    Jose Ramirez 15
    Bellinger 19
    Vlad Jr 19
    Hoskins 20
    Mondesi 25
    Debating on not keeping Arenado to free up early picks or is that crazy?

      I’d lose Benintendi and Hader.

    Great podcast guys!

    I normally, like Grey, would wait on taking my first SP. However, I have a unique situation this year and I could use your advise on my SP strategy.

    10-team keeper league with 40 players off the board.
    I’m missing picks in rounds 2, 3, 4 due to trades. I’m using my 5th round pick to keep Bryce Harper.
    All four of my keepers are hitters: Bryce, Acuna, Bregman, Vlad Jr.

    I don’t really want to use my 1st round (9th overall) pick for a SP but if I don’t, my first SP will be in the range of 85th player off the board. Best case, I’m looking at Jack Flaherty (ADP 70) or German Marquez (ADP 85.5). Worst case I’m looking at Zack Wheeler (ADP 92). That scares me a bit for a #1.

    If I use my first round, I’ll be looking at Kluber, Nola, Bauer, Corbin.

    What do you think?

      Thanks! You have 4 bats, so taking an SP with your 1st pick is fine

        I think you are correct. It’s just going to feel so weird.

        Thanks Grey!

    Hey guys,

    Excellent podcast. They’ve all been good (even the catchers!), but they were all crescendoing to this!

    I think the aural component of the pods to the visual ‘learning’ we do reading the rankings and pairing posts really helps — it does for me at least.

    Grey and Ralph, thank you! Can’t wait to draft this weekend and get this season started.

    Jake
