All hail his Grace, Tehol of House Beddict and House Razzball, first of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of Fantasy Baseball, and Protector of the Realm. 

Thank you, thank you. I am honored to sit here before you now, typing away on this astonishingly torturous throne. Though it’s agonizing to ensconce my tantalizingly toned glutes upon this chair forged from the swords of the vanquished, I’d be deceiving you, loyal subjects of Razzball, if I was to inform you that it didn’t put the wenches into the kind of frenzy I’ve only witnessed after a group of aborigines I was adopted by for five memorable years, cut the throats of six dingo’s, and dropped their writhing corpses into the Tasman Sea. [Jay’s Note: What?]

Ah, where to begin… I was a orphan from my birth, in what would have been the 12th year of the reign of our last great and powerful Targaryen King, dumped in an empty stall in the Scribe’s Hearth, where acolytes practiced the art of letters for those who had the need. The course of my entire life was set in stone on that glorious day, when I was discovered by an acolyte who brought me to Archmaester Grey. Grey, who’s rod, mask, and immense c*ck collection were silver, looked upon my squalling grace and announced that I might actually prove of use one day. Grey told me I was destined to become the greatest man thong model in our world’s history, and then, after traveling the world, flexing my cheeks for money that was beyond my wildest dreams, and sleeping with countless D-list celebrities, I would return to the house of Razzball to put my finest talent to use: Mixing fantasy baseball with quotes from Game Of Thrones, otherwise known as the greatest show in the history of the universe. [Jay’s Note: Eh…] Many other websites write multiple posts on this show, but none have the background to answer all your questions. Any fool can watch the TV show and do an episode recap, but only a true legends read the entire series in two weeks, devouring the history of the GOT world like Kardashians do rapper “D”. If you haven’t read these fascinating stories, or at the very least, watched the show, fear not, for I won’t look down upon you like peasants. Though, I will pity you, for the plain and simple truth that you’re omitting the greatest story ever told from your lives, and it pains me deeply to see you go down this treacherous and lonely path. Spoiler alerts ahead…

We’ll save the rest of my tale for another time and another place, as I’m sure you’re chomping at the bit like the great Loras Tyrell, when that blonde beauty with bodacious cakes was laid out on his California king-sized bed, ready to be served that legendary Highgarden “D” that had even the great Renly Baratheon was hooked on like a dope fiend. Say one thing for Beddict, he’s legendary teller of tales.

I am Tehol Beddict and THIS IS, Disgrace/Delight: The Game of Thrones Edition. WITNESS!

“He has other gifts, the gift of a great name. Sometimes that’s all one needs.” – Littlefinger to Lord Royce, about Robin Arryn.

Truly, there a many a great name in the wondrous game that is Major League Baseball. Some emulate the beauty of their names out on that diamond, giving myself the pleasure of gazing upon the most breathtaking views I’ve witnessed since standing atop Casterly Rock in Spring, yearning to cannonball into the sparkling Sunset Sea. Others fail to live up their phenomenal names, leaving their fantasy owners with stench as putrid as Ramsay Bolton’s soul.

Will young Robin harness the power of his forefathers and restore greatness to the name he was given, or will he be Van Damme roundhouse kicked down the moon door like the pathetically annoying little pigeon he truly is?

 

Players who Delighted

Mookie Betts  Speaking of the moon door, if you’re not on your knees each and every night, giving thanks to the Elder Gods for bringing this young man into our lives, than you deserve to be Beyonce booty-bounced down that mug your damn self.  Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh no no. This noble warrior is all about that hog life, and if you don’t support his cause, I shall strip you of all land and title, giving you the option of taking the black and living out your days in celibacy upon The Wall. The little homey has already dropped a slam and legs on that tuckus, and I can’t help but assume many shall drop down upon us like snowflakes on a nippy day in Winterfell. Yes, the .229 average leaves much to be desired, but if you don’t see the raw talent exploding from this Prince in waiting’s veins, well then, I’ll have to quote my boo-thang, Ygritte, and tell you “You know nothing, Jon Snow. “

Xander Bogaerts  Yikes, the fact that Bogaerts was sent in for an MRI during his torrid stretch of hitting had me all up in my feelings like when Robb Stark and his future baby Momma got carved up like some prime Kobe beef at Benihana. Ughhhh, that Red Wedding still got me feelin’ some type of way. So does Xandy’s .433 average and youthful smile.

“I don’t believe in saviors. I believe men of talent have a part to play in the war to come.” – Varys to Tyrion.

Those of you who have been reading my column for a great length of time (or maybe just a week) know that my fondness for Domonic Brown is unmatched. I would compare it Tyrion’s love for Shea… an unhealthy obsession. Quite so, but a real love nonetheless. I’d also like to add that the chances of me strangling him to death after he took bribes to lie on me and rub my name through the horse manure covered streets of King’s Landing, and catching him butt nekked in in my Mother/Father’s bed are exorbitantly low… but not impossible I suppose. Moving on… The Phillies outfield is in absolute shambles. Former legend Grady Sizemore looks about as useless as Grand Maester Pycelle at the plate, batting .111 with no homers or RBIs, and Jeff Francoeur looks as if he’s going to get booted from the squad like my bae Daenerys did to Jorah Mormont for snitching and almost getting her killed. Darin Ruf seems to have been given the same treatment as the unsullied, as his lack of testosterone is sickening to the weak-stomached. If only, like the remarkable unsullied, who dispose of the opposition as if it was as easy as using a pooper scooper, Ruf had some great talent, like, oh, I don’t know, playing baseball! Ruf is 2-for-14, making Philly fans about as optimistic as GOT fans are about their favorite characters continuing to live on. Domonic Brown is needed ya’ll. The time has come for this once gallant warrior to rise again, to show us why he was once the number one prospect in all of baseball, why he was an All-Star. Domonic has his part to play in the fantasy wars ahead. Oh yes, deep in your hearts you know it to be true.

“I do not respect the tradition of human cockfighting.” – Daenerys to Hizdahr zo Loraq.

What would you have paid to see Yordano Ventura and Mike Trout go heads (pause) last week, cock-on-cock (double pause)? T’would have been a fight for the ages. Like Vega vs. a white Balrog. Judging from the reaction on Twitter, most of you believed Trout would have brought down the kind of destruction we haven’t witnessed since Tyrion masterminded the genius yet brutal wildfire trap at the Battle of the Blackwater, but I wonder if Yordano might not have played the role of Bronn, and tactfully brought the one they call “the fish” to his knees before the world’s attentive eyes. I’d have to say that Daenerys is in minority here, as most humans can’t take their naughty little eyes off the site of people beating the bejeezus out of one another. WORLDSTAR! Speaking of Ventura, the young man has been balling out of control, going 2-0, with a 2.31 ERA 9 Ks, and most impressively, a 0.94 WHIP. I simply refuse to tolerate the doubters. Ventura was an absolute STEAL as the 40th ranked starting pitcher on ESPN. IS THIS SOME KIND OF SICK JOKE?!?!?! Is this like when Tyrion found out the women he lost his virginty to and married was a paid prostitute, then later found out again, that she actually wasn’t’ a prostitute (are we that far yet? Or is that only in the book?). Either way, I feel like I’m being put on here. Jered Weaver’s ahead of this stallion? The limp wristed Weaver, who can’t break 8o MPH? Ahhhhhhkaaaay! Ventura hit 100 MPH more than any pitcher in baseball last season and the new ace for the Royals, otherwise known as the best team in baseball. Yes, the cramps have been vexatious (and rather frightening!), but all is good in the hood and he’s ready to squash dome pieces like an adderall’d out Gregor Clegane.

 

Players who Disgraced

Dellin Betances  Someone explain this man’s fall from grace to me? Betances was maybe the most dominating reliever in baseball last season, and all of the world fully expected him to harness the closers role and ride it like Aegon Targaryen rode the monstrous Balerion into countless battles, coming out victorious each and every time. After a horrific spring, most analysts still believe Betances would take back the closer’s role from Andrew Miller, but the chances of that now seem slimmer than Theon Greyjoy growing back his codpiece. By the way, it would be extremely faulty of me not to mention the fact that the aforementioned Miller is dropping fire balls out of his powerful hand like Ryu and Ken, so I don’t see anything changing in the near future. Let me paint a picture for you… Betances has given up 3 hits and 6 walks thus far in THREE INNINGS!!!!! Technically, 3.1, but still. The fact that D.B. hasn’t given up an earned run is even more preposterous than the truth that some of you actually haven’t started watching this show yet. Seriously, pirate the shizz, get an HBO GO account password from a friend or family member, orrrrrr, JUST PAY FOR IT!!!! Even if you’re current state has you worse off than Tyrion Lannister in the present, you need to find a way. Anyway, right now. Now, back to what I was saying… Betances pitching looks more atrocious than the sight of that leech, Robin Arryn, sucking his mother’s teet. Obviously, I’m writing about the foulness of a full grown boy breast feeding, not the actual breasts, for those are actually quite spectacular. WITNESS!

“You’ll be queen, for a time, then comes another, younger, more beautiful, to cast you down and take all you hold dear.” – Fortune Teller Maggy the Frog, speaking to a young Cersei Lannister.

Mike Olt Kris Bryant is coming “Everyone wants to know their future, until they know their future.” Well, Mike asked me his future and after I licked the blood from his pinkie, it hurt me to tell him he’ll be swatting 30-plus dongs in South Korea until some desperate AL team in need of a part-time DH comes a callin’. Yes, he’ll have to throw himself at the feet of MLB general managers, very much like one of Littlefinger’s “women of the night’. Again, it pained me oh so deeply to inform him of the tragedies that await him, but it had to be done. The one jack and .133 average isn’t helping anything bruh.  You’ve got to be realistic about these things. Cersei Lannister, AKA MILF of our current century, is at a crossroads in her life… her eldest son and King of the realm was poisoned, her father, the most powerful man in Westeros, just had two arrows put feather deep in his guts while he was dropping a deuce, weakening Cersei’s position, and maybe most importantly, it seems she’s decided to stop allowing her gold-handed brother to smashing her after that awkward bone-sesh next to their son’s rotting corpse. [Jay’s Note: I believe it’s called… rape?] Where does she go from here? Does Maggie’s fortune telling come to fruition or will Cersei rise up like Saleh in The Air Up There, and throw down some vicious funk in her doubter’s grills? Stay tuned…

 

My exceptionally loyal subjects, our time is now at an end. But not for long! There shall be another Game of Thrones column following episode three. Next week, we’ll go back to the normal Disgrace/Delight format. As per usual, your questions and comments are much appreciated and will be respond too with the utmost urgency, for the value of your support is unquantifiable. The comment section is also welcome to my enemies, but I warn you… a Beddict always pays his debts.

        I’m looking to replace Gyorko or Valbuena on the bench.

        Also, i just lost Wright. I have Jake Lamb on the bench now, but there is: Asche and Freese in the FA pool. Who do you recommend as a temp replacement?

    Jay- wasn’t rape.

    Wondering if Betances is hurt or if it’s mechanical. He’s looked awful so far.

    Melancon has lost velocity too. Watson his set up man is a lefty and we know how that works. Guessing on saves here, might the Mighty Arquimedes Euclides caminiero get the call?

      @Zeus: Betances may be injured, i cant say. He’s still striking guys out so maybe its purely mental.

      How’s Cronus doing?

    Great Article!

    With Michael Saunders and, your boy, Domonic Brown coming off the DL soon I need to start mentally preparing myself to say goodbye to someone.

    Which two do you drop? (can always drop Saunders or Brown too, but I know you aren’t telling me to drop Brown)

    Jose Iglesias
    Danny Santana
    Khris Davis
    Avisail Garcia

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Craig: Thanks, CRAIG!!!
      well, I like Garcia. I obviously prefer Domonic to Saunders who I’ve watched blow donkey D here in Seattle for couple years now. Iglesias will definitely cool off so if he’s in utility spot or dh spot or whatever feel free to drop him. Still like Khris Davis also. Lets keep brainstorming brotha. THis is fun.

      • Craig says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: I don’t really need Iglesias or Danny Santana. Both are currently serving as depth (have Ian Desmond at SS and have been rolling Duda out there as my starting IF).

        Avi is my guy and I’m for sure keeping Brown on this squad as well.

        I will drop Iglesias for Brown.

        I guess the question at that point is whether or not to move forward with Danny Santana or Michael Saunders? Both would be bench players unless one breaks out or becomes tradeable.

    My two favorite things, combined into a glorious abomination of awesome.

    Was just offered Harper for my CarGo + Hisashi or Alex Wood (aka. “Good Wood”). My team is a DL-stint waiting to happen, so I’ve been trying to shop CarGo anyway.

    Would you pull the trigger on either (or both) variations of this deal?

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: My two favorite things aw well, Duda. Glad we’re on the same page, my friend. I cherish our friendship.

      With that being said, yes i would definitely pull the trigger. Iwakuma??? yea make that happen asap. I prefer Wood….Pause.

      I may do the one with Wood if forced tho…whats ur staff look like….again…Pause

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Iwakuma no longer on the table, so it’d have to be Wood. Staff is:

        Arrieta
        Wood
        Iwakuma
        Shoemaker
        Fiers
        Greene
        Paxton
        JoFern DL’d

        Guys like Bauer, Desclafani, McCarthy, Salazar on waivers

        It’s a 12 team H2H so streaming has been my go to (and very successful in muscling out Ks Ws and QS every week).

    Tehol…great article!

    I’m in a 10 team long term keeper league. I just lost Wright…my team is really struggling for offense anyway, so are you holding or dropping Wright for Iglesias, Alvarez, or Gose? (I don’t necessarily need another 3b. I was using Wright as my UTL). Offensive stats are H, Avg, R, HR, RBI, Steals, and Walks.

    Also available are Morales, De Aza, Canha, and Kiermaier. Thanks!

      Tehol Beddict says:

      @Andre: Thanks Dre day! Yea, id hold Wright as it seems relatively minor. Pedro Alvarez tho? u got to get on that guy ASAP. do you have DL slot for wright? Otherwise I like Morales for short term. let me know the deal so that I may better service you…Pause

      • Andre says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Ha! Did this just get awkward?!..nahhh it’s just fantasy baseball.

        My entire team is on the DL. I’ve been wanting to make a move but not sure who to drop. Been thinking polanco, but in not sure. As is I’m looking like this:

        C-Mesoracco
        1b-Freeman
        2b-D. Murphy
        3b-Donaldson
        Ss-Zobrist
        Of- Bruce, CarGo (Colorado), Pollock
        UTL- Myers, R. Zimmerman.

        Bench- Polanco, Wright(DL)
        DL- Rendon, Pence.

        p- Kershaw, Harvey, W.Peralta, A. Bradley, D. Norriss, Greene, J. Nelson, Bauer

        Rp- Cishek, C. Allen, Perkins

          @Andre: never awkward as I’m very comfortable with my sexuality…..errrr, anyway, lets move on.

          so yea i see the DL is not an option. id probably just hold as you’re good with myrser zimmerman there. but I’m not huge wright guy but id hate to drop him and then come back hard…..pause

    Dude, fantastic stuff with an emphasis on fantasy (both kinds). I’m gonna write a comic about fantasy baseball, with actual fantasy type characters.

    Anyhoo, sorry to say never got into the GoT though. Tried the first few eps and wasn’t grabbed. Now when am I going to see a Dragonlance show. That’s the real question?!

      @SallyCips: Sall!!!!! Thank you. You’re the man. I;m knee deep in these comic books as we speak. i like you’re idea. have you started yet or outlined characters?

      Dragonlance? hmmmm, i’ll look into it but I don’t believe I’ve seen.

      Game of Thrones has changed my life but its not for everyone. thanks for checking in

        @Tehol Beddict: After I read the Lord of the Rings as wee lad, The Dragonlance Chronicles was the next saga I picked up. Sooo good.

        I’m starting to get ideas for it. Been a running joke at work for awhile, but it’s starting to gel into an actual something.

          @SallyCips: Hmmmm, i’ll check it out as I’m in need of another series as I await new books in series I’m waiting on.

          Looking forward to seeing ur idea comes to fruition. thanks again for the comics!! you’re a legend in my book

    Drop Chris Owings for Alex Guerrero?

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:

      @Bilbo: i would but you’re gonna need another option for days Guerrero sits and he could be sent down as soon as he stops pinch hit jacking every pitch he sees. i’ve grabbed him in a couple spots tho

    Hey, Tehol! Carlos Martinez or Quintana for rest of season? Thanks!

      @Jerry: I’m a huge C-Mart guy, J-bone! I’m with him all day. of course he’s got to keep his rotation spot and I don’t know what Cardinals are going to do but as long as he do what he capable of doing, he’ll keep the job. like that he’s in the NL

      @Bob michaels: I’m fine with it. Polanco isn’t quite what i was hoping but still time. not sure if I would do it but i wouldn’t argue it very heavily. You’re a smart man, Bobbito, I can tell just by that one sentence

    Feedback needed on a keep forever dynasty league. I’m packed at RF and weak at 2B. Another is weak at RF. Does my Bruce + Heaney for his Wong (no, Kolten Wong, thank you) + Corey Seager seem realistic/optimistic/stupid? Thanks!

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @kangaroo hops: I actually like that. Especially if you stacked in outfield like you say. Seager could be a STAR and Wong is a very nice plug in at 2B. we don’t know if Bruce will completely recover whatever plagued him last year but i think he’ll be a little better but for Seager, Id probably do it. Im a sucker for young guys tho…..pause

    Tehol, did you ever read the Circle of Light series?

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @kangaroo hops: I have not yet read those. are you recommending the? Because I’m currently looking for something to read while I await second book of Kharkanas trilogy and the 3rd and final Name of the wind Rothfuss classic. I’ve given up on New fire and ice haha. should I check this out?

      • kangaroo hops says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: I dunno. It was big when I was little. I recommend enough to go to the library and pick up the first of the series to try it out. But maybe it is a little too young. If you haven’t read Asimov’s Foundation trilogy, though, proceed immediately to that one. More sci-fi than fantasy, but masterful.

        • LT Murray IV

          Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @kangaroo hops: looking into both series now. thanks for the suggestion. i’m always appreciative of getting put in the right direction when it comes to some great reading.

    Tehol!!

    Great article, man! Love me GoT, need to go away on mission some where to watch it b/c my wife didn’t like GoT S01E01, so……We’re still on Fringe S03E01!!!

    Have Bogaerts as a handcuff at 3B until Rendon gets back. In other leagues have handcuffed Rendon at 2B with Devon Travis so no worries there.

    Question: What to do with Travis and Bogaerts in those leagues when Rendon is activated from the DL? I usually wimp out and drop them for the best arm on the WW. I’ll try to package them with another pitcher and get a bigger pitcher in a 2/1 deal and then sign someone up off the WW with the extra roster spot.

    Cheers,
    Ante

      @Ante GALIC: My brotha!!! great to hear from you . we need to get ur wife on board so you can get up to speed here. I think I rewatched the entire series in a week or two hahaha but i was sick and stuck at home.

      great handcuffs you have there and it looks like you don’t even need my advice because you’ve already mentioned doing exactly what i’d suggest. those 2/1 or 3/1 trades can always net you a big time hog. Especially with Bogaerts because people still intrigued with the upside name etc. I really like Travis too but yea, if you’re not gonna have spots for the, go big and try to acquire an all-star player. U got this.

    I have gyorko. Was offered utley or kendrick for Taijuan Walker. Which 2b do you want and is it a good deal for me?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Rich: gyorko is terrible. In dine with him for good! ! Or at least until he becomes good again. Lol.

      Utley looks exciting now but injuries are always the concern. Kendrick should be extremely solid all year in that lineup. I’d go there as I can’t tell u everything with Walker will be go because I have no clue. Dude looks terrible. I’m good with the trade for sure

      @Catcher Fever: I say the Elder Gods because that’s my thing. I suppose I could leave GOT style on these particular posts but I didn’t want to betray them

    Looking for something to read Tehol? Have to check this book out:

    “Red Rising” << book one of a trilogy.

    Picture futuristic game of thrones, mixed with some hunger games, and perhaps a dash of maze runner. But significantly better than the last two, almost equal to game of thrones level.

    Absolutely fantastic book that I could not put down (get through a few chapters before judging).

    TEHOL.
    Firstly good article as always sir.
    Secondly I gotta say Dellin Betances is the shit. He’s gotta shake this funk right? RIGHT?!?!
    Thirdly I want to personally thank you for exposing me to the Malazan books. They are awesome.

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:

      @Daniel:

      Firstly: thank you! preciate cha
      Secondly: If I was a betting man(I totally am) I’d say yes, he should bounce back but cant see them removing miller from closer unless he blows something. or I suppose they could if Betances is totally lights out. hard to say. id lean towards Miller holding it
      Thirdly: You got it. they are legendary. i need to read them again for sure.

      Thanks for checking in

    I don’t watch GOT but what should I do with Melky Cabrera? He’s in perfect spot in lineup that should be producing but it’s not…

    Miss you handsome xo

      @The Duchess: aye bay bay aye bay bay!!! not sure why he’s not producing other than his testosterone boosters are no longer working after 20 years of abuse. Im sure he’ll turn it around when he finds the next supplement.

      Miss ya. kiss ya

    Need a hand here.. 14 team league, 27 players/team (season long roto).. Im near/at the top in all the pitching cats.. hitting.. not so much.

    I have a claim in for Odubel Herrara (dropping Bobby Parnell.. can’t hold any longer, specially cuz I think Familia has the job on lock (but also sitting on Yu and Stro in my DL (only 2 slots) for next year (keeper-auction with escalating prices.. got em nice and cheap))). Better off with O, Brad Miller or Wilmer Flores? I went O thinkin, though my power is weak, he can add to my hitting strengths (speed, runs.. though hasn’t worked out so well yet, ie. not killin it in, well, any hitting cat).

    Other question.. Gyrko.. outright drop at this point? Dominic Brown is sitting on the wire waiting to be plucked…
    Also have Doolittle and I don’t know what to do with him (note again, No DL space for him).. kinda concerned that he’s f’d anyways (injury biting into his ability to really dial it up this year + that Clippard looks nice and solid)

    Any thoughts/advice would be much appreciated.. thanks all!

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Sam: DOMONIC BROWN!!! haha. I’m praying he’s ready to go .

      Doolittle is droppable if you don’t have the space for him especially since we have no idea if he will be closer, tho I think he eventually will be.
      Gyorko is hot garbage and id trade him for a pack of American Spirit smokes.

      Think you’re right about Familia holding that job. at least I hope so anyway haha. I do have Parnell somewhere tho but I doubt he gets the job.

      Im fine with O there at short. I’m biased on Brad Miller being in seattle but he has serious pop. just not sure if Chris Taylor is going to eat some of his playing time when he returns from injury.

      Sorry for the late response my friend. thanks for reading
