Corbin Burnes was traded to the Orioles, and, only a few days earlier, Peter Angelos sold the Orioles, saying to the new owners, “Treat this team with the respect she deserves. Every part of her. Down to the staples on this contract. By the way, if you don’t need the staples, I usually take them out and save them so I can use them again down the road. Crazy the amount of people that discard perfectly good staples. I have one staple I used on a court document — someone was suing me for back pay — and I used that one staple, like, sixteen more times.”

Greetings Razz Fam! Was the stove hot enough for you during the trade deadline? It was on fire for the San Diego Padres. However, just up the coast in San Francisco, trouble was brewing with Joc Pederson and Thairo Estrada suffering concussions in less than a week of each other. On the opposite coast, Miami […]

Jesse Winker was a .300 hitter. The Mariners made Jesse Winker a .180 hitter. The Mariners took the two best prospects in baseball and made them .175 hitters. I don’t want to overstate how good Cristian Javier looked, because he looked excellent, but I want it to be clearly stated, the Mariners have poisoned bats. Not like The Riddler plotting in Gotham after The Batman. Like literally holding noodles they think are bats, and never making contact to find out they’re actually holding dry capellini. With that said, Cristian Javier (5 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 0.96) looks so good, man and five womans. Not as efficient as I would like (87 pitches with one out in the 6th). Pairing a 96 MPH 4-seamer with an 80 MPH slider that just breaks from righties way outside. Not as many swings and misses as one would like, but no chance for the Mariners on so many pitches. Throw out an Adam Frazier ten-pitch at-bat to start the game, and he would’ve easily made it through the 6th. Javier looks every bit like a starter for every fantasy league, and not just when facing the poisoned, capellini bats of the M’s. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Last week Prospect Itch drew up his Prospect Must Stash List. He made a caricature of each minor leaguer he was interested in and added a little mustache. It really was quite remarkable…*intern whispers in ear*…I see, so being told he absolutely did not do that, but instead he gave you all his prospects he’s stashing in redraft leagues. Jose Miranda was on that must stash list, and his mustache was fantastic–*intern leans in, annoyed*–Miranda did not have a drawn-on mustache. So, I gave you a Jose Miranda fantasy back in October of last year. There I said, “(He) possesses the usual Twins’ tendencies — Twindencies? — he doesn’t strike out at all and doesn’t walk a ton. At 23 years of age, Miranda ended 2021 across two levels (Double and Triple-A) with 30/4 and .344/.400/.575 with a 12% strikeout rate. Beginning to think he’s Luis Arraez with 30 homer-power. His contact skills won’t just disappear, even if they fade a little because the majors are tougher than the minors, he’ll still hit .280 with a 17-19% strikeout rate.” And that’s me quoting me! To compare him to a non-Twins player, he’s like a poor man’s Ty France. I will call him, Miranda’s In France To Stop Carrie From Marrying Mr. Big Because He’s About To Get MeToo’d. With him being recalled by the Twins — hey, I just remembered, we have a top prospect! — I’d add Jose Miranda in all leagues. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Last week was fantastic. All five of our pitching streamers did well, and it has me excited to keep rolling here. One thing that you need to know about me is that I play in about 30 fantasy leagues (Yes, I’m a degenerate). That means I use these streamers and gamble on these guys regularly […]

Welcome back my faithful reader(s) to another amazing season of Head to Head Fantasy Baseball talk!  It has been a grueling offseason full of CBA disputes, huge contracts, and in some cases (looking at you Conforto), no contracts.  Well, we wait no longer!  Opening Day has arrived and it is time to look ahead to the 1st full week of H2H baseball.  Last year, we walked, hand in hand, for 25+ weeks worth of players to target who may help you in each of the H2H categories.  Well this year is going to be a little different.  Yes, I still plan on giving out nuggets of H2H goodness as if I was a lifesize PEZ dispenser, but as the old adage goes, “Give a man a fishing pole and he will just get bored and end up at Chili’s”…or something like that.

Closer and Closer we can see the light beaming ever so strongly as we make our way to the start of our baseball journey. April Day baseball          will be upon us soon, DFS lineups to pour over, lineup decisions hmmm do I start Jace Peterson or Josh Harrison this week can’t wait right? Man I’ve never been so interested in the Chicago weather when I wake up than I do from April-Sept. Well we all love it and that’s why you are here. Here’s the deal, Today I’m ranking the 1b top 25, not a whole lot has changed from last week but a few players have some recent news so let’s get after it.


  1. Vlad Guerrero Blue Jays

2. Freddie Freeman Dodgers

3. Matt Olson Braves

4. Pete Alonso NY Mets

5. Paul Goldschmidt St. Louis Cardinals

Not much change here as you know what these guys are all about. Some drafters like Goldy over Alonso but I’m sticking with my man Petey         here in a revamped Mets lineup that I think gives him some more opportunity to drive in runs. Olson could eventually surpass Freddie but it       might not happen until next season.


6. Jose Abreu Chicago White Sox

7. Jared Walsh Los Angeles Angels

Walsh contributes in all categories except for steals and came within one HR and 2 RBI of 30/100 along with a .277 BA. Sounds like Jose             Abreu only you can get him a couple of rounds later and I think there still is another level Walsh can reach.

8. C. J. Cron Rockies

9. Joey Votto Reds

10. Josh Bell Nationals

All solid options here, The players here have a safe floor, nobody is threatening their playing time and all have good lineups around them.


11. Ty France Mariners

Excellent contact skills and will provide a boost to a category that has razor thin margins which could separate you from winning your                  league or not. Doesn’t have as much power as some of the others above but is hitting 4th in an interesting lineup in Seattle and is a very                useful fantasy player.

12. Rhys Hoskins Phillies

13. Max Muncy Dodgers

Muncy made his spring debut yesterday and walked and scored a run in two plate appearances. All concerns look to be alleviated for the               moment as he will be the Dodgers primary DH this season. Still looks like a very solid 1B/2B player with a possibility at 3B sometime during       the season as well. Looks like the drafters that took a chance on him at the beginning of the draft season are looking at him as a bargain.

14. Luke Voit Padres

Perfect fit for the Padres and will hit in the middle of that lineup. Wasn’t it just one year ago we were drafting him at pick 150 after leading          the league in 2020. I don’t think the skills have diminshed as he was hurt for most of the season last year which obviously factored in his sub      optimal 2021 season. He’s going to be one of the fastest risers in drafts at this position.

15. Johnathan Schoop Tigers

I know it’s been 4 years since Schoop went 30/100 with a .293 AVG playing in Baltimore but the Tigers are a sneaky team this season and           have a decent lineup. There will be plenty of runs scored in Tigers games this season and Schoop has still got the pop and is going to                     contribute in 4 categories.

16. Anthony Rizzo Yankees

17. Yuli Gurriel  Astros

Solid Vets here with room for more than what you paid for them on draft day. Some injury concerns here but worth the risk imo.


18. Ryan Mountcastle Orioles

Seems like he’s locked in at 1B for the O’s so maybe the stability will ease his mind and he can be more relaxed at the plate. To be determined     how the ballpark changes anything so he’s down on the list a bit for now and the Orioles are going to be pretty bad once again so the                       expectations have to be muted somewhat.

19. Alex Kirilloff Twins

20. Bobby Dalbec  Red Sox

We all know about the huge strikeout issue with Dalbec (career 35.8%). Dalbec lowered it to 28.8 % after August 1 last season and the barrel        rate was elite so you have to pick your poison. Is it a fatal flaw you can’t get over or are you willing to take that chance at his ADP?

21. Tyler Stephenson Reds

22. Spencer Torkelson Tigers

Avila said they won’t manipulate service time but who knows what spin the Tigers will put on it if Tork and Greene don’t start the season in        the majors. Torkelson is ready and he’s going to make it painfully obvious to everyone he belongs in the majors. I really like the kid and this        Tiger team. I think he vaults up into the teens sooner than later.

23. Trey Mancini Orioles

24. Miguel Sano Twins

25. Brandon Belt Giants

A mix of vets and young guns here as all have a clear path for playing time and have shown in past they are worthy of a starting Major League job. Good corner IF guys here for your team with the youngsters having more of a ceiling and the vets a strong floor.

Back with the 3B rankings next week thanks for reading and have a great drafting week!

Are the top 20 1st basemen for 2022 fantasy baseball good? How do you define good? Is good definable? Are you Plato? What is a Plato? Any hoo! This post goes on for about 1.8 million words, so let’s dive in. Here’s Steamer’s 2022 Fantasy Baseball Projections for Hitters and 2022 Fantasy Baseball Projections for Pitchers. The projections noted in this post are my own, and I mention where tiers start and stop. Subscriptions are up and running, and you can already get Rudy’s Draft War Room. Anyway, here’s the top 20 1st basemen for 2022 fantasy baseball:

NOTE: All 2022 fantasy baseball projections are based on a 162-game season, and will be until we hear definitively there will be less games, due to the CBA. Also, I’m going on the assumption the NL is getting the DH.

NOTE II: All my rankings are currently available on Patreon for the price of a Starbucks coffee, if you get one of those extra grande frappuccino jobbers. Don’t wait for the rankings to come out over the next month, and get them all now.

NOTE III: Free agents are listed as just that and not yet projected. Once a guy signs, I will write out their blurb and add in projections, or remove them, if they sign in an unfavorable place. They are ranked currently where I think they might be if they sign on for a full-time job.

Roansy makes me laughsy. He sounds like the curmudgeon 60 Minutes guy has risen in Latin America and his name is Andy Roansy. “Why do I keep getting mail?” Andy Roansy yells in Spanish then pushes mail off his desk. Señor Eduardo Bradley chuckles and outros the show. So, Roansy Contreras is being called up to start today vs. the Cubs. He made Itch’s top 100 fantasy baseball prospects. His numbers in Double and Triple-A this year: 2.64 ERA, 0.93 WHIP in 58.0 IP with 82 Ks. His stuff looks lightning-esque. Didn’t feel like embedding a video, so I just made a super whatever tweet, I’m such a basic b*tch:

Prospect Itch said of Contreras, “Why is he being called up? Are the Pirates as stupid as you?” That’s him on text to me. Itch said previously, “RHP Roansy Contreras looking filthy in Pittsburgh. He topped out at 98.2 mph with just nine inches of drop on a four-seamer as he breezed through the ninth. He also threw a curveball with mucho inches of drop and an elite spin rate of 2924. Wonder if I could spin Grey’s head that much.” Not cool, man! I’d grab Contreras in any league where you’re desperate. He’ll only get one start, but so will everyone else. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Welcome into another edition of Butters does DFS. The season is growing short and we don’s have many chances left to earn that sweet, sweet DFS money. Fortunately, there are guys like Adolis Garcia (OF: $3,400) just waiting to help you out. I love him and I don’t care who knows. Adolis is great, he has a great arm and while that doesn’t do anything for fantasy, he does have 30 dongs on the year. And that does count for fantasy, it counts a ton. I think this is a smash spot for him and you won’t want to be left on the sidelines.

New to FanDuel? Scared of feeling like a small fish in a big pond? Well, be sure to read our content and subscribe to the DFSBot for your daily baseball plays. Just remember to sign up through us before jumping into the fray. It’s how we know you care!
