Hey All, I’ve been procrastinating writing this article this week, hoping to see how this season’s Trade Deadline unfolds even further before this article is due, and also before the August 2nd, 6 P.M. EST Trade Deadline. While most of the focus (rightfully so) has been on where Juan Soto will land, and if the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Jeimer Candelario ?LeBron James
I confuse the two sometimes it’s so uncanny https://t.co/nJnQHFGFJg

“–Breathe, Grey! Come back to us! We’re losing him!”
“Someone put out a cape, I think I’m going to faint like a damsel.”
Granted, I don’t know much about basketball, but he compared himself to LeBron? Yo, has Jeimer Candelario had a break from reality? I guess tying Aaron Judge with the most homers in the 2nd half with four can play tricks on your ego. Yesterday, Jeimer Candelario (2-for-5, 3 RBIs) hit his 10th homer, and 4th in the last week. He was a sleeper of mine this past offseason — not great, Bob! — but he is hot now. By the way, his ten homers leads the Tigers in homers, and that is so freakin’ funny to me. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
OHHHHHHH we’re halfway there! Welcome to your weekly Razzball injury report, friends. It is the halfway point of the 2022 MLB season. The All-Star game offered a reprieve to the broken bodies along this trail. In 2022 thus far, players have been most widely afflicted by COVID-19 (both precautionary and illness-related), shoulder injuries, and elbow […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
In the first 25 hitters taken during last year’s 2021 fantasy baseball drafts, names such as Christian Yelich (#3), Cody Bellinger (#4), Alex Bregman (#11), Anthony Rendon (#13) and Gleyber Torres (#20) were flying off the board. This year, the group could hardly sniff the top 50 with each flailing hitter dropping harder than the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Joe Musgrove (FD $10,900/DK $10,500) is Streamonator’s top choice on the mound tonight. He’s got Colorado outside of Coors, where the Rockies have the 3rd-worst SLG% and the 4th-worst OPS in the majors. Those reasons are enough to roll with Joe tonight, but I’m going to dive a little deeper into this one. Earlier this […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
“He’s a Mormon like a wolf!” That’s me singing about Ezequiel Duran (2-for-4 and his 1st homer) as he was called up by the struggling-to-get-offense Rangers, who are only spending $500 million this year. Whatever the case, circle July 8th on your calendar as the first day we can get the long-awaited matchup of Duran/Duran. Her name is Edwin Rios and she is dancing on the sand! In the Itch’s top 25 2nd base prospects, Ezequiel got some shine, “Acquired from the Yankees in the Joey Gallo deal, Duran is a twitch factory who logged 19 HR and 19 SB in 105 games in High-A this year, slashing .267/.342/.486 between the two organizations. He also went to the fall league and slashed .278/.333/.611 with another three home runs in 16 games. I’ve been into this guy’s baseball actions since the first time I saw video of him way back in 2017. He’s a stout right handed hitter at 5’11” 185 lbs, who swings like he’s killing snakes. Grey better watch out, since he’s a snake.” Not cool! In deeper leagues, where you’re struggling for everything — wouldn’t be me! (Absolutely is me!) — I could see grabbing Duran. “Just like that river twisting through a Dusty land!” Me singing about Duran when he faces the Dusty-led Astros. Unlike the Phils’ defense, that shizz is catchy. Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?

As we approach June, the Mets have the best record in the National League. Like many fans, fantasy owners might be asking what is happening and how did we get here? Luckily like the real world we can expect the Mets to falter. If you are not yet at the top of the standings in your fantasy league, you have to expect the same from your league mates. It is still early and not the time to throw in the towel, but rather it is time to dig deep to find those hidden gems. Be bold and make some moves to prepare yourself for the summer stretch run. This week we will dive in to the top 100 hitters for the rest of the 2022 fantasy baseball season and call out some of the big bats that are on the move!Please, blog, may I have some more?
“This is 911, what’s your emergency?”
“I need a defibrillator!”
“Someone’s having a heart attack?”
“No, it’s for the dead ball.”
“Please stop calling, sir.”
Tarik Skubal was a victim of being sneezed on by Matthew Boyd, and used to give up a homer just about every three pitches, but no longer. It might not just be the dead-ball, Skubal was a top pitching prospect a mere three years ago. That timing tracks. Usually it’s three years in the majors, and a rookie pitcher becomes what we expect from him. A rookie pitching prospect has moments his rookie year, then he has more moments his 2nd year, then his third year it’s all moments. Tarik Skubal (6 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 11 Ks, ERA at 2.50) is currently living in the moment. 94 MPH fastball, 89 MPH slider, 76 MPH curve and 84 MPH change, each used liberally. Not relying on the fastball as he had in the past, even though you wouldn’t blame someone with a 70-grade fastball. There might be something to his success and the homers allowed thing, but the ball doesn’t seem like it’s being resuscitated any time soon, so Skubal can absolutely maintain his newfound success. Anyway, here’s what else I saw this weekend in fantasy baseball:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Minnesota rookie shortstop slash prospect slash phenom slash heartthrob Royce Lewis finally broke out Friday night going 2-for-4 with his first career home run, a mammoth 105.1 mph grand salami! I don’t have to tell you that having your first big league home run be a grand slam foreshadows grandiose things for your future career. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Life was grand! There we all were, chit-chatting/arguing, about who should be drafted when, and why. Yes, fantasy baseball was just a simpler time before the actual games had started. It was once said that Hope Springs Eternal, and with the beginning of anything, it reminds us that anything can happen, albeit unlikely. That phrase speaks volumes for many of us because we all know that only 1 person can win their league, yet we all “hope” we can do it. Byron Buxton should tattoo that saying across his body because even I remain optimistic that he can give us an MVP season with a clean bill of health. While hope still remains, you will need to stay active because as we all know, you can hope in one hand and s#it in the other and see which fills first.
On that lovely note, here is another installment of Getting Ahead in Head to Head for Week 6!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?
