          @Ralph Lifshitz: Well don’t let it get to your head, we don’t need your 10 year old self thinking they need to be the best in baseball and start roiding out and saying celebs want their seed!

    Wow. That was hilarious. I was waiting to hear more on Jose and his steroids use and his battle with MLB. And Grey leads with the Madonna sperm question and he hangs up and interview over. I’m still laughing an hour later. Razzball at its best. Love it.

    I may be starting to enjoy the Joe Ross theme song ALMOST as much as you JB.

    Also, I loveeeee this pod. I’m not sorry that it didn’t work it. Cause it did. Excellent content gentleman.

        @knucks: Oh we worked it alright!!!!! Haha. That Ross music is growing on me more and more somehow too, WHERE ARE YOU NOW?!?!??!

  8. JakeTPE says:
    (link)

    Hi JB!

    Talk about punch! First round knockout by Grey! He saw his shot and he took it. I’m trying to imagine Jose calling up his handler and complaining “They asked me about Madonna and my sperm! What’s up with that?!” And the poor guy rolling his eyes, having to calm him down like he said. “I’m gonna hang up and forget this ever happened!!” What a joke! Did you or Grey say “jest all over his face”? Best line from the interview postmortem.

    Have a good 4th of July weekend in DC! See ya in a couple of weeks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @JakeTPE: Haha Grey started bold and we got the bold response! Haha! Agree, I felt bad for his media team there, why I bleeped his name. hah yeah def Grey with a line like that! And appreciate it man! Can’t wait to see my Brew Crew!

  9. Teddy Heater says:
    (link)

    That was effin epic. My favorite part was the agent:

    “He’s got the kick shitted out of him” and Grey’s comment “I’m a Huge Fan!”

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Teddy Heater: Hah yeah I felt bad for that guy so I bleeped his name, but it kinda made the segment him chewing us out haha

      • Teddy Heater says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: That was my favorite part! Glad you kept it in there. “Great Effin morning guys!”

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Teddy Heater: Hahaha yeah it as a necessary addition for sure! Poor guy… Canseco def sounds like he has a lot of ups and downs haha

    Hey jb what side do you like?
    Abreu carpenter Carrassco for belt segura Salazar?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chris: I’ll take the Abreu side. He and Belt are about even at the worst, then Carpenter is wayyyyy over Segura, which is the kicker for me. Any time!

      • Chris says:
        (link)

        awesome thanks!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Chris: Any time!

  11. Bob Bobstein says:
    (link)

    We have to get Joe Ross to come out to that song in a game man. Anyone know someone at the Nationals? Love that song now

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bob Bobstein: Hah I have some die-hard fans that I think have had “some” involvement with the team, I’ll get them on the phone!

  12. Odor's Odor-izzi spray says:
    (link)

    What happened to “if you dish it out at Jose, he’ll dish it right back?!”
    Where’s the punchiness, Jose?!?! What, so he’s fine ratting on all of the MLB for using steroids, but he won’t rat on Madonna for being a semen fiend?? Consistency, Jose!! Consistency!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Odor’s Odor-izzi spray: I know right?! We legit had that conversation with his media team! Maybe he forgot which podcast he was doing hahahaha.

  13. Chris says:
    (link)

    Hey again jb
    How about this
    Abreu carpenter Carrasco eickhoff conforto
    For
    Belt segura Salazar Quintana and either Cain or Bradley if you like it who would you prefer Cain or Bradley

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Keeper or redraft? In redraft, yeah I’ll take the shot on Cain as an OF replacement as long as you need one more starting OF. If your starting OF is full of pretty good guys I’d still prob hold

  14. Chris says:
    (link)

    I’ll write u again I’m about 20 min and send you my team I’m questioning if I can compete for the rest of the year or not without a trade

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Gotcha!

  15. chris says:
    (link)

    Hey JB

    So I’m in a 14 team league roto h2h. It’s a re-draft. I’ve been gaining ground in the standings but do you think this team can compete for the rest of the year? I know tough question, do your best LOL. If you don’t think it can what do you think I need. Steals for sure I know, lost Deshields man how disappointing!
    Let me know please sir,
    Thanks!
    C-Norris
    1B/CI/dh-Encarnacion/Abreu/Duda(DL)
    2-Walker
    SS-Crawford
    3-Carpenter/Valbuena-(DH)
    MI-Andrus
    OF-Polanco-Grossman-Joc Pedersen-Kemp-Moya-Saunders–Pence
    SP-Carrasco-Liriano-Matz-Rodon-Ray-Mengden-Eickhoff-Steven Wright-Alex Reyes-Corbin-Gio-Reed
    RP-Dyson-Krod-Street

    Do I need to make a trade? Liriano is annoying as hell-Ray and Corbin are so inconsistent it’s pathetic. If I put a guy in he sucks and the guy on the bench dominates!! Will Conforto be back soon? Ahhhhhhhhh LOL.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @chris: Ugh yeah steals is rough without DeShields panning out! Offense looks pretty good for a 14er, the pitching looks like it’s pretty rough. Grossman can prob be cut. I still might shop an OF + meh pitcher for a pitcher upgrade. I do think Conforto is back sooner than later, but will depend on if he can hit in the minors haha

  16. JVanSlyke says:
    (link)

    Haha. wtf! You should have suggested for his publicist to keep Ozzie on stand by for moments like that.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @JVanSlyke: Hah I know right?! I was kinda hoping Grey would get attacked!

  17. Sky

    Sky says:

    Grey: Master Lothario, Pauper Podcaster

    Everyone knows you don’t go straight to talking about another man’s semen!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      It’s Ejacul-Gate!

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        But really, the interview was going so well before then. I really felt how into it he was when he said ‘yeah’ five times in a monotone. It was gonna be magic!

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          His electricity when entering a batter’s box hasn’t dissipated one bit!

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Sky: @Grey: It was like his team was down 15-0 in a game and we jested a fastball right in his face!

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Basically you guys stepped into the batters box and there was already two strikes and the strike zone was bigger than Joe West’s ego

              • Grey

                Grey says:
                (link)

                Haha

        • Hal Incandenza says:
          (link)

          @Sky: Just heard it and I was thinking the same.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Grey: @Hal Incandenza: I had no idea Grey was gonna do that, he can’t be contained!

            • Hal Incandenza says:
              (link)

              @JB Gilpin: In the future, Grey has to submit his questions in advance. But in this case, saying Canseco ended the interview at 0:40 sufficiently carries the story. This is Razzlore.

              • JB Gilpin

                JB Gilpin says:
                (link)

                @Hal Incandenza: Hahaha yeah it wasn’t going to be interesting any other way

  18. Martin says:
    (link)

    Love your podcast guys. Didn’t realize Canseco was as soft as a peach!

    Where can I listen to the episode with Matt Berry? Would love to hear it. Hopefully Grey asks him about his sperm!

  19. Chris says:

    hey again jb
    How does Saunders and eickhoff for Salazar sound?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Hey man! Yeah I like that one if you need the pitching upgrade to get Salazar

  20. Chris says:
    (link)

    Or grey if your around?
    Eickhoff and Saunders for Salazar? Does Saunders stay healthy and keep this up?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chris: I think Saunders cools a little

      • Chris says:
        (link)

        thanks I offered it!

          @Chris: Nice!

  21. Shark says:
    (link)

    I totally guessed Melvin Upton…because I’m a Wil Myers owner! @Martin, AJ Reed is going to crash & burn with those K rates in my opinion (right on schedule so far in a small sample size), plus his minors #s are so meh for a PCL player. No clue on the reason for the hoopla.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shark: Haha nice! Yeah those two Pads have been great for fantasy, just everyone else has been atrocious! @Martin: @Shark: Yeah I’m not huge on Reed, but the power upside I think is a lot greater than Bell so I would take the risk, agree they’re very close tho

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Shark: milb K rate looks about on par with the Rizzo’s and Goldschmidt’s of the world. Both of which took a couple years to be perennial 30/100 guys. Although they weren’t as high of draft picks as Reed so maybe they didn’t have such lofty expectations in their 1st 3 mlb games.

    Brings me back to the Don’t Stop Believin’ 80s. I have to admit I didn’t believe Jose at first when he wrote his tell-all book in 2005, but he spoke the truth. He exposed MLB and turned our worldview around about the game and what happened after fans became disenfranchised. MLB looked the other way because they made too much money. I still think MLB gets away with it because they have the anti-trust exemption. Watch the Battered Bastards of Baseball on youtube describing a time right before Canseco. Maybe this is what he’s continuing to point out. I’ll watch his movie, but it’s $100 with popcorn. Welp, it’s sold out so can someone lend me the money and scalper fees?

      @jason bourne: I’ve heard if you give Canseco Grey’s name, he’ll hook you up :)

  23. Count de Monetball says:
    (link)

    Wow, just wow!!! Helen Keller could have been able to tell that Jose wanted no part of the podcast to begin with. Only you Grey! Seriously, he sounded like that interview with Ruby Rod did Corbin Dallas on 5th Element https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8hCAE0_uIc

    BTW thanks for the SNAFU Larry link, it’s been a long time since I listened to that one…. Classic!

    • Count de Monetball says:
      (link)

      Wow it has been a long time, forgot it was in text only. C’mon Grey release the audio of that one PLEEAAAASSSEEE! I am more interested in that than i am who Carly Simon was talking about in “You’re So Vain”

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Don’t even have the audio anymore

            What’s this SNAFU Larry thing?

    Holy shiZz you guys! That was too freaking crazy. Laughed so hard. I’ve been a big Razzball fan for a while now. When I interview y’all, I’m leading with a semen question. Please treat me the same.

    After that amazing day with Ralph I think you guys should make him a staple on the podcast. For future interviews you need to mute Grey til you get to the 5th question

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @J-FOH: Hah I did have a blast with Ralph and Ralph Jr.! Mehhhh, Grey unmuted with Jose seeming that uninterested I think was the way to go, if our guest seems into it, I will adhere to the mute Grey for 5 rule haha

      • J-FOH says:

        @JB Gilpin: If I ever land us a guest I will be sure to request the mute button
