I don’t know about you but wow what a week of some exciting finishes lately in these games. If you were fortunate enough to be able to stay awake for last night’s game between the Mets and Giants I mean it can’t get much more exciting than that right…Have a day Joc Pederson! He doesn’t […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Pirates’ front office looking at the clock labeled, “Service Manipulation.” The big hand clicks towards “Extra year of service time,” and the little hand creeps towards, “Being cheap AF.” Just as Being Cheap AF and Extra Year of Service Time meet at 12 o’clock, a little birdie flies out in a Pirates’ jersey with the uniform number for Tyler Glasnow and starts cuckooing. With that, Roansy Contreras was called up by the Pirates, and will start today. In Triple-A, he had 2.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 10.6 K/9, 4.9 BB/9, and a 1.33 HR/9. He can be electric, but those walks scare me. Yo, I don’t trust the Pirates at all. Not with pitchers, not with hitters, not for nothing but not with nothing. No trust. Anyone rostering Ke’Bryan and Bryan Reynolds liking it? Has Mitch Keller clicked yet? Will he ever? How’s Oneil Cruz doing you? Sucks to put that all at Roansy’s feet, but there ya go. That’s my feelings on him. For those that found us by googling “sucks” + “feet,” you a freak! Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
They say he’s the greatest Orioles catcher ever. They say the greatest catcher prospect since Yogi Berra. They are talking about Matt Wieters. “They” are Keith Law. He’s not the only one. I went back to the 2009 prospect guys to see what people were saying about Matt Wieters and found, “Has the power of Mark Teixeira,” and “a bat so potent he could be a two-time batting champion and one of the game’s biggest stars in almost two years.” Okay, I lied, those are all Keith Law quotes! Good for baseball that Wieters wasn’t its biggest star. Others were just as complimentary to Wieters with Kevin Goldstein, who got a job with the Astros and now the Twins said, “Wieters, Chris Tillman and Brian Matusz are can’t miss.” They had great things to say about Matt LaPorta too. Who? Not sure, I think Matt LaPorta is French for doormat. From that draft alone, there was no mention of Madison Bumgarner, Giancarlo, Freddie Freeman, Josh Donaldson, or even Travis d’Arnaud, all guys drafted after Wieters and LaPorta. Why mention any of this? Just tamping down Adley Rutschman enthusiasm with this hype-cleaver. That’s my Tamp-ax! Wait, maybe it’s not a good idea to say that. So, this is a weird way to start a post where I say I’d absolutely pick up Adley Rutschman in every league. Killing enthusiasm with my Tampax. Yikes, need to stop saying that. The Tampax (this is not a sponsored post, by the way) is simply to stop up hype that Rutschman will be a top five catcher as soon as he’s called up. I don’t think he will, but he could be. Think 15 HRs and .280 for four months. It’s irrelevant what he was even doing in the minors. He was ready two years ago. He’s worth adding in all leagues if you’re struggling at catcher, Tampax be damned. Period. Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy Friday, Razzball readers! It’s high school graduation weekend at many schools across the country, kicking off graduation season for all of the future Leaders of America ™ . My oldest daughter is graduating Sunday (congratulations, I love you, and I’m incredibly proud of you!) but another graduation I’m pondering is that of Milwaukee Brewer […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tonight, the main DFS slate is a short one with three games that lock at 7:10 pm EDT. Because it is such a short slate, instead of doing the typical article with several of the best DFS picks, this is going to be more of a strategy article about how to attack a short slate […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day Razzballers, and Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there: We are watching history. While 2022 isn’t exactly the Dead-Ball Era that Babe Ruth revolutionized, the league-wide batting average is around .230, the implementation of the DH in the National League seemingly has no positive effect on slugging percentage yet (Brandon Drury […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Minnesota Twins rookie pitcher Josh Winder nabbed his second win of the season Friday night going six innings, allowing just three hits, and no earned runs (one unearned) while striking out eight. Winder up and let ‘er rip! The 25 year-old now has back to back wins after going six strong innings in St. P […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
May the Fourth was with Rowdy-D2, as he had the night, that every hitter used to have in 2019, 4-for-6, 8 RBIs and his 6th and 7th homer. Anyone who asks, I say grab Rowdy Tellez. You down to Jarred Kelenic or Rowdy Tellez and I’m Tellez who I want who I really really want. Wanna see who’s hot? Look at the 7-day Player Rater. Don’t have to scroll far down for Tellez. Wanna see a gorgeous Statcast page? Look at Tellez’s. I wrote a sleeper post last year for him, but my one caveat was: Does he have playing time? He struggled to find it; Jays shipped him off and now he won’t be denied, especially not on the planet of Tater-ooine:
Sorry, these are just so cringe that I can’t resist. Also, having a great night, and now deserves a Colt 45, was Andrew Cutchrissian (4-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs):
Okay, okay, one more, and this is the worst one, which makes it the best, Luis Chewurias:

Normally I like to focus on guys you can add but now that we’re nearing the end of April, I feel it’s a good time to take a wider angle and look at the bigger pitcher, I mean picture. Didn’t mean to bring up Randy Johnson there. The Big Unit was certainly an imposing figure but he’s not really an option right now, even if your league gives bonus points for birds utterly obliterated by a fastball. Sorry… got off track there for a sec. What was I saying? Oh that’s right, we’re looking at hitters who are hot. They won’t all be available and they won’t all be able to sustain their early season success for the long hall but for the time being they are hot hot hot.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome! I’m digging the week we had in baseball..a few walkoffs, a 3 HR punishing session by a Mr. Rizzo, and some absolute pitching gems albeit of the 6 INN variety. Guess we got to get used to that being the norm from now on. All right well let’s get to the rankings at the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Quick recap through two plus weeks shows strikeouts and homeruns are both down. Knowing what I pay for when I go to a MLB game, I prefer both of those statistics to increase. I think as the weather warms up and starting pitching arms move away from the ‘dead arm’ phase that normally hits in […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Max Fried went into the House That Sandy Koufax Built, during Passover, and hid the Afikoman from the Dodgers for 7 innings. For you gentiles who don’t know what an Afikoman is, imagine I was accidentally misspelling the rapper Afroman’s name and you were playing hide and seek with him. That’s an Afikoman. *stares at the ceiling* Damn, I thought balloons would fall if I made the first mention ever of a Afikoman on a fantasy sports site. No luck there, I guess the Hebrews didn’t pay for the balloons! Rarely do I make two straight ledes from the same series. From Freeman to Fried, man. From a guy who looks like he has teeth made of wax to Max. From a guy who abandoned his Atlanta roots to a guy who hears often, “Why don’t you call more?” Max Fried went 7 IP, 0 ER, 2 hits, zero walks, 8 Ks, ERA down to 3.50. I suppose it’s harder to hit an unleavened ball. Nice to see Fried bounce back from his last two meh outings, but this is why I keep telling you to be patient. We really have no idea about anyone yet. Even Max Fried was able to go from meh to mensch. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
