It is take one of the new Razzball Baseball Podcast, now featuring Halp. Or is it halp? Should I be honored that I was graced with the lowercase “h,” or insulted? I guess I’ll have to ask malamoney how he feels about it. Either way, Grey Albright starts off the show by discussing the 800-pound gorilla in the room, JB’s departure. We then get going by talking about some of the recent major injuries, including Noah Syndergaard, Shelby Miller, Adam Eaton, and Ryan Braun. And finally, we weigh in on if some of the week’s hottest hitters are for real or not. Also, please make sure to join me at FantasyDraft for our very own Razzball Only FantasyDraft Contest! It’s the latest edition of the Razzball Baseball Podcast.

    Welcome to the pod Halp!! ALso liked this Dusty quote on Bautista – “He’s an outstanding outfielder, runs exceptionally well, has a good throwing arm and he pays attention, that’s what I like most about him, is that he pays attention … He has bright eyes and a good face.”

    Dusty lovves attention, so naturally, I overbid for Bautista in a certain, deep, legendary 30-teamer where I’m starved for speed. Crossing all my toothpicks he gets in there

      @SheriffMcRawDawg: Thanks, Sherriff! Another classic Dusty quote. I think he is actually starting to become my favorite manager. Good luck with Bautista. Like Grey was saying, he very well may end up beating out Michael Taylor at some point.

      @Hugman: Sorry to leave you hanging, Hugman, but didn’t feel like it was my place to talk about it first.

    Enjoyed the show, Halp! Good stuff. A most entertaining and informative debut.

    Just please do yourself a favor and watch out. I mean, first there was Nick C-a-p-o-z-z-i. He was great. The whole 30 drafts in 30 cities in 30 days road trip, but then where did he go? A cruise ship? I hope he didn’t get lost at sea.

    Then there was JB. Also great. Brought the punch and Jose Canseco for all of 30 seconds. And who can forget America’s favorite game, Ben Revere or Denard Span? But now, no more JB. There’s a trend developing, and we wouldn’t want anything to happen to you. True crime is big these days. Is Grey a secret podcast host killer?!

    Anyhow, some things to ponder. Looking forward to (hopefully) more shows!

      @JakeTPE: Much appreciated, JakeTPE! I think you are on to something! Don’t believe the smiling pictures if we ever meet in person, that is really the kiss of death! (or the tickle of death)

      @Blaze: Like it if you need offense. You should know I am not the biggest Bundy fan though, a lot of that being for health reasons

    Halp, you’re the man, you made me look good, now you’re making Grey look better! You’re like a golden mustache on the face of our fearless leader!

    Never met Grey, never let him tickle you, and don’t tickle him.

      Ralph, I am glad to see you didn’t take this on too! Your plate is filled and I don’t want you getting burned out since I rely on your analysis so much!

      @J-FOH: the highest of compliments from j-foh! I must be doing something right

        @Halp: you know I got love for you, you’re my co manager in the rejects league and I love our bi monthly baseball phone convos. I’m just glad the rest of the world gets to hear you do “regular” baseball now.

          @J-FOH: Oh, I wasn’t kidding. I really did take that as a compliment. And will always remember you were my first comment ever on Razzball!

      @J-FOH: Yeah, let me know when Capozzi can break down the contact ability of Aaron Judge.

        @Ralph Lifshitz: hey can’t a man just like the sound of another mans voice without getting all technical. Nick is the fun guy and Halp is the business time

    Jesus Halp you’re fucking smooth. I bet you use custom condoms made out of other people’s dicks

    Best advertisement ever

        @Halp: make me believe you improv’d that

        • Halp

          @J-FOH: haha … they clearly didn’t have that in the ad script

    Josh Hamiltons 4 homer game in 2012 may be better than Rendons?

    • Halp

      Halp says:
      (link)

      @Old School Brother: I’ll take Hamilton’s four homer game too. Bellinger has a chance to be what Hamilton could have been, although Hamilton had some awesome years.

    I uppercased you on your username, you deserve it, halp! (Not in comments yet.)

      @Grey: hahaha … I noticed. I was just starting to get attached to the lowercase! But appreciate the uppercase love!

      • J-FOH says:

        @Halp: upper cases mean upper deckers…. Hazing sucks here

          @Grey: Oh, trust me, I don’t have any delusions that you won’t be keeping me on my toes

    Best of luck, JB! Nice cast Halp!

    In other Classic Mets news, the mets have two Thor giveaways scheduled for the same week of his injury (check out their twitter banner !)

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Thanks, Duda! Damn, that is rough. Just got me thinking, could that have anything to do with the fact that the Mets didn’t really care all that much about the MRI either. Hmmmm … (probably not, ha)

        @Halp: @Halp: Luckily I’m a Yanks guy like you, so we can just watch our friends lament from afar!
