Braves are calling up one of their top pitching prospects, Spencer Schwellenbach, for today’s game. That’s right, Schwellenbach is a Braves’ pitching prospect, and not what the doctor says every time Brandon Lowe complains of lower back pain. “Sorry, your fourth and fifth vertebrae are pressing against each other. You have a Schwellenbach!” Kinda crappy […]

Welcome back to the Top 100 hitters for the rest of the 2024 fantasy baseball season. I once had a baseball coach who told me you’re talented but you need to change one thing. He simply said I need to swing the bat harder.  The fact that I’m writing rather than playing right now indicates the results may not have been favorable.  However, Baseball Savant recently released their swing speed metrics and have given us a new dimension to evaluate.  Did you know that Giancarlo Stanton swings the bat hard while Arraez barely swings at all?  Of course you did because you’re a savvy fantasy baseball player.  However, did you also know that Jo Adell has been swinging a harder bats than Juan Soto?  Or how about that Mookie Betts and Adley Rutschman sit in the bottom 20% of hard swingers?  While still trying to figure out what this all means, it doesn’t give us more to dig into in this week’s rendition of the Top 100 Hitters for the rest of the 2024 fantasy baseball season.

Then we analyze highly rostered hitters that have been dreadful to start the season. Is it time to move on from them? You can […]

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.

Aaaaand we’re back! And just in case you were concerned the Dodgers weren’t loaded with enough weapons to make Jack Reacher blush, an Ace break out could be upon us as second year starting pitcher Bobby Miller put on an absolutely filthy display Friday night, dominating the St. Louis Cardinals to the tune of six […]

Intro Happy Opening Day to everyone except Ippei! This is my favorite time of the year. Spring is sprung, everyone is huffing hopium (EWB’s word), and we all get to talk about the excitement of baseball. It’s a magical time. And this, my final draft of each season with my fellow writers/analysts here at Razzball, […]

We have officially kicked off the 2024 fantasy baseball season with baseball in Seoul South Korea. The Dodgers and Padres socked it out to start the season and reaffirmed this column’s decision to place Mookie Betts as the best non-Acuna bat for 2024. Now that we have had an early glimpse of regular season baseball, we are only a few days away from kicking off the season for everybody else. For us here at Razzball, we wind down our coverage for the preseason and take the opportunity to unveil the next 20 spots of our top 100 hitters for the 2024 fantasy baseball season. Without further ado, let’s give it another go for fantasy owners!

What is up party people. Real baseball is finally upon us. As fun as Spring Training is, the real thing is just so much better. Last week we covered my Top 50 players for points leagues and now it’s time to dive into the next 50. I actually really like a lot of the guys ranked here and more than a few of them have the potential to shoot up into the top 50. And let’s be honest more than one of these guys will end up way higher by the end of the season if things break right for them. Actually the end of this list is particularly spicy and I can’t wait to watch them. So happy drafting and remember that you don’t win your league at the draft. I’ll be here all season to help you work the wire and gain an edge.
