We’re back with a fresh edition of the Razzball Pod – and shocker! – Grey starts the show by yelling at me about the intro!  Bloodfeud today!   We catch up on some of the news from the past few weeks including the unfortunate Alex Reyes injury, then spend the majority of the show previewing OF!  I nitpick through Grey’s rankings which you can follow along with here, as we hit on some values in the earlier rounds all the way down to some NL-only sleepers.  All leading up to the biggest question of all: who is ranked higher, Ben Revere or Denard Span?!  Here’s the latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast:

JB, quick trade question for a H2H points keeper league. I would trade Kershaw (1st round keeper) Bregman (12th) and my 3rd round pick for Arenado (3rd) Syndergaard (11th) and his 20th round pick. I hate to trade Kershaw, but I would be getting Noah with a sweet keeper value, plus have Bum as 5th, Cole as a 9th and Urias as a 12th for other keeper SP. I would be improving my hitting a ton, what are your thoughts?

@JB Gilpin biggest issue I’m having with the trade is that I’ll only have my 2nd round pick in the first 5 rounds of the draft. Kershaw is my 1st, Price my 4th and Bum is my 5th. I like the deal other than that part

@JB Gilpin no, not anymore. We announced our keepers at our winter meetings a few days ago, so I’m keeping Price, Bum, Bregman and Urias and would be drafting Kershaw 1st overall. This offer came up after our keepers were announced.

@JB Gilpin it wouldn’t have mattered anyway since a guy can only be traded once in the offseason and get his draft pick value back. For example, I traded Bryce (6th) for Bum (5th) earlier this offseason and got my 6th round back, but if I traded Bum again I wouldn’t get my 5th round back by moving him. The other guy had already traded for Nolan and Noah earlier.

@JB Gilpin it was a compromise for the people who didn’t entirely want a keeper league that you would lose a round of value every year you kept a guy, so once they get into the earlier rounds it becomes a question of better player/worse draft pick or better value. So it’s kinda a semi dynasty league in that aspect instead of just a straight keeper league.

Content suggestion submitted for approval:

2016 was ‘Span or Revere.’

Make 2017 the year of ‘Who Said It: Ralph, Halph, or Alf.’

JB, I’m in a keeper league that values slugging (doubles, triples, home runs). I’m trying to decide between Polanco and Dahl for my 3rd OF spot. I loved Polanco’s first half. I love that Dahl is in Coors and has that sweet upside (although Polanco does too).

Thanks dude! Slow clap for you!

Hey JB,
My draft will sadly be done by the time you get your ranks out. Looking for a little help on a pitcher to draft next round in a keeper league.
Looking at G. Richards, Snell, Giolito, Cotton, Bundy, De Leon, z.Davies.
Any of these guys jump out at you as breakouts?

@JB Gilpin:
Thanks . I was leaning that way. I really love your rankings. Grey is the master at the offence but for the pitching side I turn to you. If you feel like sending a sneak peek to [email protected], I promise I won’t wikileaks it.
