We’ve just got a quick hitter this week for our Razzball Commenter League update.  With only three days in the previous week’s schedule thanks to the All Star Break, everything is abbreviated.  There weren’t a lot of changes, but there’s still some goodies to go over. Plenty of trades were made, especially in the ECFBL which made five swaps this past week.  We’ll also go over the weekly leaders for our little three day mini week and name a team of the week as well. It’s pretty impressive what teams can pull of in just three days.  Let’s jump into all the juicy data from our mini week that was, week 15:


Each week we’ll peek in at our resident ‘perts to see who is laying claim to best “expert” RCLer in the land.  We’ll take notes, check the standings and generally stalk them.  The heading is also hyperlink, so feel free to follow along as we go.

As with most leagues this week, there wasn’t much doing in the ‘Perts league either.  The only change in the standings was B_Don swapping spots with Ralph in the battle for bronze.  I lost the most points this week with 3.5 but managed to hang onto second place for now. Grey remains the top dog following the short week.

TOP 10

For those too lazy to check the MASTER STANDINGS, I present to you, the current top 10

1 Fat Fuckin’ Babies RCL 2019 (#57) 114.4 110 104 112.7
2 Team mcafeeeee RCL 2019 (#17) 110.3 112 101 106.3
3 MattTruss223 DFSers Anonymous 109.4 101 107 107.5
4 UpNorth RCL 2019 (#65) 109.3 106 104 105.8
5 Backdoor Splitters ECFBL 108.4 104 106 104
6 Licketty Splits RCL 2019 (#52) 106.3 99.5 108 101.2
7 Squat Cobblers 2 RCL 2019 (#14) 105.3 107 100 103.9
8 The Hippos ECFBL 104.3 98 106 102.5
9 Brookhaven Modern Blue RCL 2019 (#18) 104 101.5 102 103.3
10 Team razzkai RCL 2019 (#19) 103.1 101 103 100.7

We found a small snafu in the Master Standings from the previous week that dropped FFB down in the standings.  Numbers over 1,000 were showing in the Master Standings page as just 1. FFB had over 1,000 strikeouts and was dinged for this.  The Babies are back in the top spot now though after finishing third in the TOW race for the shortened week. These Babies will not be containted!

Team mcafeeeee had a big jump this week from sixth to second, knocking my DFSers team from second to third.

UpNorth falls from the top spot last week to fourth this week while Backdoor Splitters remains in fifth.

Licketty Splits fell from third to sixth this week and the Squat Cobblers hold onto the seventh spot.

My Hippos hang onto to eighth and  Brookhaven Modern Blue moved up one spot to ninth.

Rounding things out is Razzkai getting back into the top ten this week.


All the trades that have gone down in the past week.  Public ridicule is not only allowed, but encouraged.

7/8/2019 RCL #36
New Paddack On My Wrist traded Michael Conforto to Team janowx for Kenta Maeda
7/8/2019 ECFBL
STL Squat Cobblers traded Eric Hosmer to Creative Chaos for DL LeMahieu
7/8/2019 ECFBL
Vegans traded Bryce Harper & Victor Robles to Johnny Utahs for Liam Hendriks & Justin Verlander
7/10/2019 ECFBL
EvilEvies traded Clayton Kershaw to Vegans for Khris Davis
7/10/2019 ECFBL
Creative Chaos traded Marcus Semien to Vegans for Masahiro Tanaka
7/10/2019 RCL #20
Team Dealthegame traded Aaron Nola, Max Kepler & Gerrit Cole to Team Jbmwlgraphs46 for Yonny Chirinos & Jay Bruce
7/13/2019 ECFBL
Creative Chaos traded Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to Capital Offensefor Mike Clevinger

Like I said, ECFBL got busy this week.  Vegans traded away a lot of power for some pitching.  Vegans are currently DFL in ERA so there is plenty of ground to be gained there if this pays off.  Hopefully the drop in power numbers won’t counteract this change of course.

I don’t know how the Cole/Nola/Kepler for Yonny/Bruce trade made it through, but there was only one veto.  Yikes.


The best of the best from the week that was.

R – 40 – Vegans (ECFBL)

HR –16 – KingAndrus (RCL 2019 (#65)) & Stan the Man (RCL 2019 (#18))

RBIs – 43 – Stan the Man (RCL 2019 (#18))

SB – 9 – 3 Teams Tied

AVG – .365 – KingAndrus (RCL 2019 (#65))

K – 65 – Confortobly Numb (RCL 2019 (#4))

W – 5 – 18 Teams Tied

SV –  7 – 4 Teams Tied

ERA (Min. 20 IP) – 0.00 – The Great Knoche (Frequent Commenters League) (in 24 IP)

WHIP (Min. 20 IP) – 0.35 – MattTruss (Writers League) (in 20 IP)

None of these records will count towards the year long weekly records, but there are some sweet performances in a three day stretch.  16 dongs in three days is mind boggling.


Our weekly shout out to the team that killed it the previous week.

Team: KingAndrus

League: RCL 2019 (#65)

Stats:   AVG: .365, R: 38, HR: 16, RBI: 38, SB: 3

IP: 30.2, ERA: 2.64, WHIP: 0.815, K: 34, W: 3, SV: 5

Summary: KingAndrus is probably hoping for more short weeks after this three day run.  Xander Bogaerts and Manny Machado went ham with three dingers each while Justin Verlander and Jon Gray did work on the pitching side.  KingAndrus has some serious work to do getting to the top of RCL #65 with UpNorth going berserk but KingAndrus now sits just 3.5 points out of second.  Keep it going King.

    Matt, thanks for all your hard work on the RCLs!

    I am thrilled to be back in the top 10, although I have a rival right on my heels (currently #17 in the master standings, but the team was in the top 10 a few weeks ago)

    I also own a team in RCL #20, the one with the questionable trade. I thought the trade was bad but usually adhere to the rule that unless there is clear sign of collusion, I don’t veto. But I came awfully close. What should the standard be for RCLs?

    Thanks again for all your work!

      Thanks Razzkai and nice work!

      I am typically anti-veto as well and lean towards you mindset. The only thing that has me raise a hairy eyebrow is a really bad trade between a team in last or near last and a team atop the standings, then I might veto.

    What happened to Hot Rod?

      MattTruss says:

      Hmmm, what do you mean? He’s out of the teens at least!

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Exactly! He’s coming on strong! Haha, nah, I meant, wha’ happened? How does he have 22 points?

        • MattTruss

          MattTruss says:

          Yea, I don’t know Blake Snell hasn’t helped, Jose Peraza, Justin Upton drafted early, hard sayin, but it’s not pretty.

            Grey says:

            Youch! Poor Hot Rod, I hope we didn’t scare him away — we need the war room next year!

  3. The Great Knoche says:

    I’m pushing up index for FFB in that league plus Up North In #65. If I can’t win it I’d love to help someone else get there. What happened to Hot Rod?

    • MattTruss

      MattTruss says:

      Go get ’em Knoche!
