What is up party people? Sigh, another week, another promising young outfielder hits the IL. Jung Hoo Lee wasn’t lighting the world on fire just yet but there were signs he was about to take flight. Then he dislocated his shoulder in a collision with the wall and his timeline to return is uncertain, with the worst case timeline being the rest of the season. We should have some clarity in the coming days, but I’m fearful it will be a lengthy stay on the IL. So far he has been replaced in center field by Luis Matos who was a top prospect just a short time ago. He has big time potential but struggled in the majors last season which is why he’s been in AAA. Now that injuries to the rest of the Giants hitters have given him a chance to play everyday, it’s up to him to put it all together and show off his talent. His numbers in AAA haven’t been great but he has hit the ground running since his call up and that makes him worth taking a shot on. Now lets look at some other potential replacement options, starting with some guys from last week and then we’ll see who’s hot.

What is up party people? We’re now one week into the season so let’s dive into what we’ve learned. Just remember that all we have to go on right now is one hot or cold week, or something in between I guess. Trust your preseason evaluations don’t panic just because a guy you loved during the draft is batting below .200, *cough Nico Hoerner *cough. He will be fine and much much better days are ahead.

You In January, “You ranked Bryce Harper where? At 11th overall? I feel like, and don’t take this the wrong way, but you might’ve hit your head and unleashed another part of your brain that most people hide. Let’s call it, The Stupid Brain. And by you unleashing The Stupid Brain, it’s caused you to do stupid things. Like the Bryce Harper ranking. If you didn’t hit your head and you think The Stupid Brain is actually your The Smart Brain, let me be the first person to say, no, it’s absolutely stupid.

Well if the start of this season doesn’t send home the message we’ve been preaching for years in regards to SAGNOF here at Razzball I don’t know what will. It stands for Steals/Saves Ain’t Got NO Face. Meaning, you can find these things on the waiver wire, don’t over-invest during the draft. It always rings […]

Welcome back to another week of the 2024 Top Keepers series. We’ve completed our journey around the infield, so now we head to the outfield.

This week the spotlight is on left fielders. It would be simpler to just rank all the outfielders in one big group. However, I am not a fan of leagues that just start outfielders. While there is not a big difference between left field and right field, there is a difference. And playing center field is a very different skillset compared to the corner outfield spots.

With that in mind and knowing there are plenty of leagues that start a left fielder, center fielder and right fielder, I have broken up the positions into three different rankings. But before we get to the top left field keepers, below are the positions that have been discussed previously:

“Hey, man, how come you have names written on the seashells in your bathroom that is decorated in Tommy Bahama?”
Fantasy Baseball Prospector, “I’m glad you asked me. I’ve had those seashells lined up on my bathroom shelf for the last five years, but no one ever visits me so I never had a chance–nay, an opportunity to tell anyone what those seashells really, and truly meant–”
“–hey, man, can you get to the point? I saw you have prospects’ names written on the shells. Why?”
FBP, “Here, this one has Alex Kirilloff‘s name on it. Please listen.”
I take the shell, and press it against my ear. From the shell, I hear, “Post-post-post-post-post-post-post-post,” like it’s waves lapping against the shore. “Whoa.”
“That’s right. Each shell has a different name, and if you press it to your ear you hear how many ‘posts’ are in front of post-hype prospect.” I reach for one shell that reads Garrett Hampson, and he stops me, saying, “That one never stops saying ‘post.'”

So, Alex Kirilloff seems to be breaking out, finally. Why do we care? Quite brucely, he was tagged at every point in the minors as being a guaranteed superstar. What stopped him was repeated wrist injuries. Clearly, those are not good for his hitting. His wrist is supposedly fine now. He was out the other day with a sore shoulder, but the Twins are saying he’s fine, so the superstar we always thought possible might finally be here. Up next, pressing Nolan Jones’s seashell to my ear. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:
