Well well well, ladies and gents (I do hope I have regular readers) the second half of the season is about to kick off. I sincerely hope your team is undefeated at this juncture. But who cares about the first half, all that matters is how you finish. Fret not, for I have ranked them all. We’re talking every player over the second half. Projection data is taken from the Razzball Steamer Rest of Season projections. That is then converted into point totals, the number in brackets following each players name. Yeah a lot of them will be on a roster already, in fact, I would be pretty disappointed in you if they weren’t. But anyhoo, here’s the new rankings for the second half. Use this info to help in trade negotiations and hope that the rest of your league isn’t reading Razzball as well. When perusing these rankings keep in mind that in many cases point totals can be very close. In that case, prioritize the position you need or the guy you enjoy watching.

There should be plenty of offense to go around tonight. Pitching will be tough to come by. The top 5 pitchers in terms of salary all have warts in my eyes. Wainwright shouldn’t be $10k, much less against the Dodgers. Eovaldi is far from elite and the Rays have the 4th best wRC+ against RHP since the trade deadline. Manoah is Yankee stadium; Peralta’s pitch count will likely continue. Shane McClanahan is tempting but he gave up 4 ERs to Boston in his last start and LHP tend to struggle in Fenway.

Another Wednesday, another slate with one less game due to poor weather the night before. Thankfully we still a healthy 8-game slate on our hands with some interesting matchups. We have good pitchers against bad offenses, as well as great offenses against poor pitching. Toronto will garner much of the offensive love and for good reason but don’t ignore the 2nd team in that game.

Who’s ready for some more Thirsty Thursday DFS? Tommy Edman (2B: $2,600) sure is. He’s riding a nice hot streak and that’s a train you should climb aboard. Tickets aren’t too expensive and the tracks look clear ahead. As a bonus he can also slot into an outfield spot if you would prefer that. He’s a top 10 hitter today but you aren’t paying him like one. Full steam ahead.

The month of April has come and gone. Among the hundreds of players in Major League Baseball, perhaps no one is happier about that than Francisco Lindor.

Acquired in the offseason by the New York Mets to be the face and anchor of the franchise, the perennial All-Star is off to such a bad start, Mets fans are greeting him with boos. That is what happens when you are hitting .189 with a .299 on-base percentage and a woeful .243 slugging percentage.

Is this just a player trying too hard to impress his new team and fanbase? Maybe. Lots of players have struggled to adjust to new settings or the bright lights of New York before figuring things out. Perhaps, however, Lindor’s struggles are not a blip. When you look deeper into his stats, maybe what we are seeing now is the start of a trend.

Well, it didn’t take long for injuries and poor play to blow up my preseason rankings.

Fernando Tatis is back in the lineup now for the Padres, but he gave every fantasy owner a heart attack when a vicious swing nearly ripped his shoulder off his body. Meanwhile, Adalberto Mondesi has yet to even get his season started while Tim Anderson was sidelined with a hamstring issue. While injuries are a nuisance, nothing frustrates a fantasy owner more than poor performance.

It seems shortstops such has Trevor Story, Gleyber Torres and Dansby Swanson have decided to enter the witness protection program instead of hit a baseball with any consistency. Story’s slow start has seen him fall 16 spots in my rankings while Torres and Swanson are nowhere to be seen in the rankings right now. Speaking of rankings, let’s get on with the show and see who ranks where – and why.
