Third Base Ranks Trends: After the first four in my ranks, there’s a HUGE dropoff and then a cliff after like 8 guys. Luckily, the top four are all legitimate choices in the first or second round. Might need to reach on a guy somewhere or take the (legitimate) chance that Yoan Moncada rediscovers his […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Well, it’s that time of year again. What time is that you ask? I’ll tell you. It’s the approximately ten days or so that most of you have interest in me. I had someone at my front door this afternoon that I absolutely did not recognize. I was certain it was another solar panel douche. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s getting ridiculous now, isn’t it? Once sign stealing was quelled, the haters couldn’t wait for the Houston Astros to fall flat on their faces. But this Day of Reckoning never really comes, does it? No matter what front office or rule changes occur, these modern-day Astros just keep on chuggin’. They are a seemingly […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
What is up party people? It is once again that beautiful time of year… Draft Season! It’s an exciting time and every team has a chance to win it all. If you’re new to points leagues, welcome, we’ll start with some general tips and tricks. If you’ve read my posts before this will generally be a refresher.
The best piece of advice I can give is to know your specific league’s scoring settings. That is more relevant with the recent scoring changes a certain platform (cough ESPN cough) has made ahead of this season. Under their new standard scoring format pitcher value will be way different than in the past. Wins, Saves, and Loses will no longer impact your teams quite as much. This shifts the balance of power even more in favor of the top bats. If your league penalizes for Ks that changes things as well. The long and the short of it is to understand how points are scored and who gains a boost or a downgrade in your format.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s been a good time to be an MLB shortstop, given the overall depth of the position and the historical off-season we’ve had thus far. Marquee free agent shortstops Trea Turner, Xander Bogaerts, Dansby Swanson, and Carlos Correa inked deals totaling around a billion dollars. Despite two failed physicals, Carlos Correa still made out like […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you are starting a team in a new dynasty league, take a look at the position breakdown of the top 200 players, using the main position for utility players except for one, who plays basically any position in the field.
What quickly jumps out is the lack of depth at second base and third base. The second and third base positions alone add up to only one more Top 100 player than the shortstop position. There are some great players at those two positions, but the overall quality lacks compared to shortstop or first base.
When it comes to catchers and relief pitchers, I can tell you right now that there are few of them ranked. There are a lot of good catchers, but many of them will get only 110 or so starts or they are getting up in age, making them less than desired dynasty options.
As for the relivers, I never chase saves (or holds if your league has them). How many players dread chasing Aroldis Chapman last year or a host of other top closers? Meanwhile, five new closer will come out the woodwork this year that you can get in the middle of the season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Opening Day is less than 3 weeks away and if you are like me, you have a continuous string of slow and live drafts running each day. What a glorious time of year! Here at at Razzball, we have the RazzSlam drafts going strong all this week at NFBC, along with the Razzball Commenter Leagues […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to the initial unveiling of our top 100 hitters for the 2023 fantasy baseball season. As spring training kicks off, we will learn more about the young prospects that might make an impact like Jordan Walker or an injury to an everyday regular like Gavin Lux that toss our rankings out the door. However, that is the reality of our fantasy baseball drafts as values will inevitably change. As with any rankings, I always recommend balancing the rankings you like with your own league settings to make adjustments. At the end of the day, I hope these give you some insight and stoke a great conversation. With that preamble complete, welcome to the first edition of 2023’s Top 100 Hitter rankings starting with the top 25!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This year I’m taking no prisoners with my fantasy baseball overrated posts! No prisoners, baby! I’m a work release program, baby! Wait, that doesn’t sound as intimidating. I’m parole, baby! Meh, that’s not great either. I’m something that takes no prisoners. Sorry, I can’t think of any examples because I was born and bred in […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello, all you brave, courageous, adventure-seekers, you’ve found the wrong website. This is fantasy baseball, not fantasy role playing, unless it’s fantasy roll-playing and this is Stratomatic, but that’s still not right. Still, fantasy baseball. Good, now that we got rid of all those people wearing fedoras and shopping from the Indiana Jones collection at Eddie Bauer, we can get down to the bidness. The Auction value bidness? Not quite, but you can find all auction values in Rudy’s rankings — one example, 12-team mixed league auction values. This is a top 100 for 2023 fantasy baseball. Let’s do this!
One word about this top 100 for 2023 fantasy baseball, before I give you another 5,000 words. I’m going to avoid repeating myself from the position rankings in the 2023 fantasy baseball rankings. If you want to know my in-depth feelings about a player, then you need to go to his positional page, i.e., the top 20 1st basemen for 2023 fantasy baseball, the top 20 outfielders for 2023 fantasy baseball, the top 20 Patterns In Queso That Look Like Messages From Another Planet for 2023– Okay, but I almost got you. This post is meant to give you an idea where guys from different positions are in relation to each other. Since this post is only the top 100, there’s more players where this came from. 448 more, to be very exact. Next up, there will be a top 500 that will go past 500, then, after that, there will be a top 7,500 that will go to 8,602, then a top 25,000 that will go to 28,765, then a top 600,000 that will go to 892,121, until we end up with a top kajillion in April that will go to a kajillion and one. Or maybe I’ll stop at the top 500. Yeah, that makes sense. Not to get all biblical on you, but this is the gospel. Print it out and take it to Mt. Sinai and it will say, “Win your 2023 fantasy baseball league, young prematurely balding man.” Projections were done by me and a crack team of 100 monkeys fighting amongst themselves because there were only 99 typewriters. Somebody please buy Ling-Ling his own typewriter!
Razzball Subscriptions are also now open, which include the Fantasy Baseball War Room. I don’t draft without it, neither should you. Anyway, here’s the top 100 for 2023 fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
The last few weeks our hitter profiles have focused on some deep sleepers to add to your late round draft board. This week we are going to buck that trend and take a peak at some big names that come with an even bigger price tag. Too often factors like youth, upside, discovery bias and more come together and deceive our draft capital. Yes, this is the article where we say Lars Nootbar is going to bust, Michael Harris II is too expensive and Bobby Witt Jr. will see the sophomore slump. Some may say this is blasphemy, but it might just be the perspective you need.Please, blog, may I have some more?
