I’ve been running out of ideas for titles but this one was a slam dunk. I have said many times before that I’m a huge Steely Dan fan. They are one of a few artists to ALWAYS soothe this beast and take me to a good childhood place. But hey, enough about me, I want to talk about you, but not all of you. The “you” I can’t talk about is the top 20 overall. Due to some computer issues, we don’t have an updated master standings this week. Sorry guys… and girls, we will hopefully have them next week when Rudy returns from his vacation.

Before I move onto the RCL data, I wanted to talk up our Razzball day at the Angels game one more time. Below is my rather poor attempt at combining two pictures, sorry for the pixelation. Below is Grey and myself sporting our sweet new Razzball shirts. To show you how much I want this to be about you… and Grey, I cut my face out so we get Grey times three! If you want to buy one, let me know in the comments. To the right is Teddy Heater, with Hector Santiago (I think?), walking off the field after he threw out the first pitch. Damn our boy can throw. So proud how hard Teddy represented Razzball with his sweet jersey. I had a nice chat with Teddy about today’s topic: the RCL’S. In his first year he has really picked up on the strategies and was already talking about next years draft strategy. You guys… and girls should try to play an RCL with Teddy next year.

What a monster K week for the Nine Pound Hammer. That is the most K’s in a week all season. I didn’t see them in the top pitching teams that Vin assembles so I must assume the rest of the numbers didn’t go as planned. Oh well, he still got his name in a post. The rest of the weekly leaders was pretty standard fare and as always I tip my cap to you…because I’m not on the list!

Leaders of Leagues

Three tables down, three to go. The rule of three kicks in here because we have just enough stats that are comparatively relevant and won’t turn this into over-kill. Below are tables for the top leagues in Runs, RBI’s, HR’s, SB, AB’s, IP, K’s, WINS, and SV’s. I have mentioned in the past about the importance of innings pitched and at bats to compete at a high level. For those that missed those discussions or have been living under a rock, I’ll go over them again. On the pitching side you want to stream over half your starts and utilize good middle relievers. On the hitting side maximize at bats by embracing batty calls. The Hitter-Tron is great for that. You achieve all this by keeping a handful of fluid spots on your roster all season long.

    yes, i want that shirt and the jersey, ASAP so I can wear to Seahawks football games. what a legend. how did he get to throw out first pitch? this is incredible. what’s better than razzball?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Tehol Beddict: Did Grey get you into contact with Tedy Heater. I’ll add you to the preliminary list for a T-Shirt. We can also do them in whatever color you want.

    • Teddy Heater says:
      (link)

      @Tehol Beddict: Tehol, I tried to comment on your last post on Monday, but it pulled the old phantom delete and I didn’t have the brain space to write up another one. I assured Grey I’d hook you up with this Jersey. My wife Kelly/Bug is a big GOT fan and like me she was quite impressed with your GOT posts this season, so I thought it fitting that you get to don the inaugural Razzball jersey, that and Grey said you wanted it. I did all the lettering and she wrapped up by hand sewing everything on. It’s not MLB worthy, but a strong AAA effort! We only had 4 days to get it put together. Email me at [email protected] and I’ll get it out to you.

      • J-FOH says:

        @Teddy Heater: I DM’d your email to Tehol

    I wonder who is the lowest-ranked (overall) league leader. My “Man or Stroman?” is 200th overall, can anyone do better, i.e. worse?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @DrEasy: do you mean lowest team overall that is in first place in their league?

      • DrEasy says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Yeah!

        • J-FOH says:

          @DrEasy: i can look next week when the standings get properly updated

            @J-FOH: Cool!

            • J-FOH says:

              @DrEasy: You just need to come back and remind me

    Shout out to the Downward Spiral, the Grifters-era Annette Benning of RC leagues. You are the thinking man’s sex symbol if sex was related to fantasy baseball in any way.

    • J-FOH says:

      @Mike Adamson: thats a different way of putting it

    Sorry JFOH I didnt see this until now.. work is kicking my ass right now. I am the Nine Pound Hammer and I streamed my butt off last week. The team embodied its spiritual leader, Max Scherzer, and was terrible on ratios and wins but struck out everyone!

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @mauledbypandas: 2015 is not the year of the Panda. I was thinking you have been busy. I went to look at your Razznasty team to make a trade. I have Hamels and you have love for the Rangers

      • mauledbypandas says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: I would probably trade for him even though I think his value in Arlington takes a little bit of a hit.

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @mauledbypandas: I agree, I’ll look at your team, flip side is he came from a more extreme hitters park and has some run support now
