Grey Albright and Rudy Gamble join the show to talk about how Razzball.com got started. We get to know a little about the guys who started the site and where they want it to go in the future. We also discuss if we think baseball will be played and if so how many games. Did the Rams get the warm L.A welcome? Grey gives us his thoughts. We go a little off topic and talk about what will happen this fall with college sports. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week we were stood-up, forgotten, left for dead. They say never meet your heroes, and for Grey and I that will not be a problem. Where art thou Adam Richman, patron saint of hungry men! So, in other words no Adam Richman this week, but don’t be upset, turn that frown upside down kemosabe. Grey and I are back and we tackle the tough questions like “what frivolous purchase would you make with $10 million dollars at your disposal?” We follow that up with one of the more fascinating topics we’ve ever covered on the show. Grey Albright’s resume pre-Razzball, pre-FML, hell it’s even pre-Cougs! So strap in and expect to laugh, expect to be confused, and expect to be Albright’d. It’s the latest episode of the Razzball Podcast.Please, blog, may I have some more?
B_Don and Donkey Teeth are joined again by the Fantasy Master Lothario, Grey Albright, to discuss the NL auction that the trio did over on CBS with Scott White and crew. The guys discuss how they approach draft auction values and how you may want to adjust your values.
Spoiler alert: Rudy liked one of our teams more than Grey’s squad. Grey walks us through his auction thought process. Of course, it’s hitter heavy in traditional Grey Albright fashion. You can check out Grey’s write up here.
Donkey Teeth, is flexible in his yoga positions and flexible in his auction values. DT spent early and often then went looking for draft values, which he found in guys like Shogo Akiyama and Ender Inciarte. B_Don sits back and listens to Grey and DT argue about which awful pitching staff is better.
B_Don finally gets his turn to talk. While the pitching is far better than almost any team in the league, Grey and DT don’t like the approach that B_Don took with his hitting. In NL only leagues, one has to pick and choose where to spend the money and where the roster weaknesses will be. Keep on the look out for B_Don’s write up of his NL auction experience as well.
After all the NL auction talk, the guys discuss the early rounds of their respective TGFBI drafts and note some unique picks after just a few rounds. All sorts of draft goodness in this episode, so, check it out!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Cans and holes, Cans and holes, Astros gotta have their cans and holes.
The Springer, the Pinto, and the former Saint Verlander,
They’ll hit the can on the bottom while we’re swinging at heaters.
Nachos, Hot Dogs on Houston’s field,
They won’t go down cuz Manfred says no.
They won around the league from port to port.
Every time they won, Kate Upton got a JV quart.
Grey joins that other Razzball podcast….for this week. As is standard, B_Don and Donkey Teeth get Grey’s thoughts on RazzSlam (sign up for free here) and talk about Grey’s NFBC Cutline experience in 2019. The trio tackle the topic of the times in discussing the Astros and how each believes this will affect their seasons in 2020.
The guys wrap up with some discussion about the CBS AL Auction that they participated in. They talk about the auction format of Tout/LABR and these CBS auction leagues. Of the 4 Razzball participants, they each took a bit of a different route to their auction. Tune in and find out which team Grey likes the most. For more information about Grey’s draft, check out his article.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Grey joins Donkey Teeth and B_Don to discuss ideas for 2020 fantasy baseball on the Goin’ Deep Razzcast. They debate whether Ronald Acuna or Mike Trout should be taken #1 overall next year, or maybe dark horse Christian Yelich? The changing landscape of Major League Baseball and fantasy baseball is at the forefront of the discussion.
The Fantasy Master Lothario joins the Ditka Boys again on this week’s baseball podcast. They discuss Grey’s industry leagues for way too long before diving into some real baseball talk about 2nd half rankings. Grey discusses his process in compiling his preseason rankings compared to his 2nd half top 100 and then Donkey Teeth grills him on ranking of Vlad Jr (#71).
Grey is down to his last resort and invited B_Don to come on and guest host. The Fantasy Master Lothario makes his case for Phil Collins as the greatest musician of all time. To be fair, he does have the greatest 11 beat drum solo EVER.
After some music talk off the top, we talk about the game for the chaps across the pond, and the announcement that Vlad Jr. will be in the HR derby. Grey and B_Don both give you their thoughts on Frankie Montas for next season and talk about some of the exciting young prospects entering the game.
The guys get into a Yordan evaluation for ROS and where he fits in the rankings along with what leagues you should be targeting recent call-ups Zac Gallen, Logan Allen, Bobby Bradley, and how the Mountain Mets will screw up the Brendan Rodgers/Garrett Hampson situation this time. So, if you can hear Grey calling in the air tonight….. Oh Lord….Please, blog, may I have some more?
B_Don and Donkey Teeth are joined once again by the Fantasy Master Lothario on this week’s special guest edition of the Ditka, Sausage, and Fantasy Sports Podcast about Baseball. As a warm up, Grey ejaculates stories of his many, many, MANY visits to the sperm repository. Once the guys finally pry Albright’s mind away from P*rnHub, they get to discussing their level of belief in some of this year’s mid-season breakout players.
While B_Don is off taking care of “family business” in Puerto Rico, Grey swoops in to steal the one and only Fantasy Sausage Show about baseball. As usual, nobody has any idea whether or not the show is actually recording.
After 10 minutes of standard Grey Albright nonsense, Donkey Teeth and the Fantasy Master Lothario dig into Donkey’s most recent Top 100 Starting Pitchers post. The guys take a closer look a Hyun-Jin Ryu, Robbie Ray, Chris Sale, Martin Perez, Lucas Giolito, Griffin Canning, Clayton Kershaw, and Joey Bag O Butts Lucchesi. Grey also admits he may have been mistaken about Zack Greinke and Madison Bumgarner, while Donkey Teeth makes yet another case for Yusei Kikuchi.
The Ditka Pod is once again graced with the presence of Fantasy Master Lothario Albright this week. After an ad nauseam discussion regarding the confusing nature of the podcast name (it’s a play on SNL’s Super Fans by the way), Grey breaks down B_Don & Donkey’s recent blockbuster trade in the RCL Perts League.
