It’s around that time of year in the MLB season when teams start realizing if they’re contenders or pretenders for the season. The Super Two cutoff date has passed. Teams have been calling up their prospects to give their respective big clubs a midseason boost, to showcase value in a potential trade down the line, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Please see our player page for Brandon Lowe to see projections for today, the next 7 days and rest of season as well as stats and gamelogs designed with the fantasy baseball player in mind.
Bryce Harper (1-for-4, 2 runs) and Kyle Schwarber (2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 17th and 18th homer), stand behind home plate watching Harper’s dad throw batting practice. Schwarber walks out and stops Harp’s dad, “Thanks, but I think I’m gonna use the other guy for the Home Run Derby.” Schwarber points to Patrick Corbin. What’s the opposite of June gloom? Kyle Schwarber’s got that. Kyle Schwarber is the first Phillies hitter with 18 homers in the team’s first 64 games since Domonic Brown in 2013. Shoutout to Tehol! By the by, if you weren’t around last November during the offseason, our writer (?) Tehol was on the Bachelorette. I’m not joking:

Any hoo! Anyone that can remember Schwarber’s last June knows he loves hitting in June and in Nationals Park. He had 16 homers last June, then burned out almost as quickly. Someone remind me to trade for Schwarber on May 31st and trade him away on July 1st. Yo, Schwarber save some for after the summer solstice. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
As of this writing, we find ourselves in the middle of Memorial Day weekend. If you’re like me, you’ve likely found yourself in the middle of some competitive lawn games, delicious food, and several quality IPA’s (luckily a few of my home league-mates are craft beer connoisseurs) with some great company. With some interesting goings-on […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we approach June, the Mets have the best record in the National League. Like many fans, fantasy owners might be asking what is happening and how did we get here? Luckily like the real world we can expect the Mets to falter. If you are not yet at the top of the standings in your fantasy league, you have to expect the same from your league mates. It is still early and not the time to throw in the towel, but rather it is time to dig deep to find those hidden gems. Be bold and make some moves to prepare yourself for the summer stretch run. This week we will dive in to the top 100 hitters for the rest of the 2022 fantasy baseball season and call out some of the big bats that are on the move!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Guten tag, Razzkindred! While last week was not the most injury-rich week (HOORAY!?), there were certainly some big names on the list (sorry to all of you who have Max Scherzer). There were 12 entries to the COVID-IL along with a holding pattern of various leg and back muscle injuries. Is someone on your roster […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Kyle Tucker (2-for-5, 6 RBIs and his 6th and 7th homer) has three asses, because he’s — count them with me now — an unassuming assassin.

That photo of him brings me so much joy. He’s like, “I’m on your fantasy team? Okay, cool.” He looks like he just let out a fart, and only he knows it. Using one of his three asses, I presume. This Kyle Tucker assault was brought to you initially by Nathan Eovaldi (1 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.32) as he gave up five homers, all in the 2nd inning. Apparently, Manfred tried to work the 2019 ball back into circulation. Also, in this game, not simply Eovaldi — Nothan? Novaldi? Meh, maybe now’s not the time for portmanteaus — Yordan Alvarez (2-for-4, 3 runs) hit his 12th homer. Captain Woo Cubano gonna star in Dongs Just Wanna Have Fun; Yuli Gurriel (2-for-5, 3 runs, 2 RBIs) hit his 3rd, and 3rd homer in the last five days for the smoldering schmotato; Jeremy Pena (2-for-5) hit his 7th for a nice welcome-back-old-friend to the lineup and to the New England area (he’s from Are-Eye); Michael Brantley (2-for-5, 3 RBIs) hit his 3rd homer, and I just thought of something, everyone on the Astros is better than that former Astros player Carlos Correa. Bummer for him! Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
I only hear what I want to. *sob-snorting* I thought what I felt was simple! *mumbling words I don’t know* Turn the MLB dot com on! Yusei is on. *mumbling more words I don’t know* I think that Yusei’s throwing, but I’m thrown. Is Yusei…oh…kay? *mumbling more words I don’t know* You try to give away a keeper, or keep me cause you know you’re just so scared to lose, and Yusei…Stay.
It’s kinda crazy how much Lisa Loeb was singing about Yusei Kikuchi (6 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 3 walks, 6 Ks, ERA at 3.38) when he was only three years old. Yusei’s command is usually around a 3.5 BB/9, but this year so far it’s 5.6. His Ks are still so far’king good — 9.3 K/9, and his velocity is fine (95 MPH on the speedball), and he seemed like he wasn’t controlling the cutter/slider well early on, and it was forcing him to throw the fastball more. So hitters were sitting dead-red on the chugga-chugga, and it wasn’t working. In his last three starts, things have been better, and Yusei isn’t just a Gen X anthem for lost love angst. Yusei…Stay on my teams. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Being a Mariners fan since 1977 is hard to explain to fans of other teams. People understand our futility and stopped making fun of/joking about our plight many years ago. Sure, we had a season in which we won 116 games. So what? Do you recall what happened in the postseason that year? HINT: Do […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day All, If you’ve been focusing on the NFL Draft this week, I’m happy to report we’ve had another exciting week of baseball. The Mets combined to pitch a no-hitter against the Phillies this past Friday, Bryce Harper and Mike Trout earned their 10th year of MLB service time (I feel old), and yes […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The best starting pitcher options don’t get too expensive today/tonight so we’re going to look at some Streamonator plays below. That just leaves us more money to spend on hitters, and oooooo-wee do we have some tasty matchups sitting out there for us tonight. Hittertron loves the Yankees at home vs Cleveland SP Eli Morgan […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy Easter/Passover/holiday weekend Razzballers: Easter Weekend is upon us at my household, meaning there is plenty of delicious food/drink to be consumed, talk of World Series aspirations are still reasonable for my fellow Yankee and Met fans, and my grandfather will be asking me about the merits of investing in Bitcoin. Great times! We’ve had […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
