Good day, We are at the goal line of the 2022 regular season (to borrow a football reference). This season’s been nothing short of historic: between Aaron Judge’s pursuit of the AL home run record, Albert Pujols’ 700th homer, and the seemingly endless amount of rookie callups that have hit the ground running. Before I […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day, As the 2022 regular season winds down, let’s review the shortstop pool. Booms: Dansby Swanson – Braves – We’ve likely seen Swanson’s career year as he approaches free agency. His 93/21/89/.279/.332/18 line has been a great value from where he was drafted this year. Many teams will likely line up for Swanson’s services […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good Day, We’re wrapping up the dog days of summer as we approach Labor Day. Hopefully, your teams are in a good position for a playoff/money spot in your leagues and hopefully, you’re not too focused on fantasy football as of now (even though it’s the biggest football draft weekend). At this point, you’re aware […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good Day All, We find ourselves in the dog days of summer. Congrats to those in the hunt of their respective leagues, and congrats to those still reading these articles. If you’re in a keeper league, your trade deadline has likely come and gone, and accordingly, you have a good idea if your team is […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good Day (to everyone except for Padres fans and Fernando Tatis Jr. owners), If you’ve followed MLB, or any professional sports for that matter, we’ve been graced throughout the years with some of the silliest excuses and quotes for steroid abuse use. We’ve heard lines from pro athletes such as: “I had to live up […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hey All, Well, we’ve surely had a Trade Deadline to tell the kids and grandkids about! Padres general manager AJ Preller has cleared out his farm system in a way we’ve never seen before. Talk about seizing the day and making a push for job security! We also have a clearer idea of the teams […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
They say “20/20” refers to normal vision. It’s also been said that “hindsight is 20/20.” If you have played fantasy baseball for a while, particularly in auction or keeper leagues, this proverb holds true, especially looking back at waiver adds or trades made/not made over the course of the season while assessing where your team […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day, All: It’s another exciting week to be a baseball fan, as Adley Rutschman, Matthew Liberatore, and Nolan Gorman have received call-ups from their respective MLB clubs. Mike Trout is doing Mike Trout things, as he’s now the only player in history with 1,000+ R, 200+ SB, and 1.000+ OPS through his age-30 season […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day, All, Things have been interesting as usual as we are approaching the end of the first calendar month of the MLB season – future Hall-of-Famer Miguel Cabrera reached 3,000 hits, the Rays threw nine no-hit innings in a game that ended up not being a no-hitter, and MLB is allegedly using two different […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy Easter/Passover/holiday weekend Razzballers: Easter Weekend is upon us at my household, meaning there is plenty of delicious food/drink to be consumed, talk of World Series aspirations are still reasonable for my fellow Yankee and Met fans, and my grandfather will be asking me about the merits of investing in Bitcoin. Great times! We’ve had […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
First things first: ever wonder why people say that? Of course, first things should be first, or else we’d call them second things. Can you imagine if I started this post, “first things second, let’s begin with thirds?” That wouldn’t make sense, and you’d probably disregard my introduction and move right on to one of Grey’s eloquently-written masterpieces. So, first things first: I am not The Itch. I am Hobbs: modern marvel of man and owner of over 500 antique bottlecaps. This brings us to second things second: these rankings, therefore, detail my own assessment of the top-10 prospects for 2022 fantasy baseball, and not Itch’s. Itch composes the official prospect rankings for Razzball and knocks it out of the park year after year. But here is how I see this year’s top-10 for both dynasty and re-draft purposes, with a heavy emphasis put on 2022 projections. You may be surprised as to how the first-few names came out this year.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Holy rookie starters! I swear, there are more rookies debuting on the mound in 2020 than there are jokes about dongs on this site. After hearing much conversation about rookie starters and seeing some of the love-at-first-sight that is happening in some fantasy circles, it got me to thinking: of all the rookie starters out there, how do they all stack up from now through the rest of the season? Our very own everywhereblair has already been providing you with awesome updates to Razzball’s starting pitching rankings each week, but I thought I’d take it a step further as one of the prospect gurus and hone in on the first-year hurlers. These are solely rankings for the rest of the 2020 fantasy baseball season, although I plan to have updated dynasty rankings on these same names in the near future. Warning: my rankings do not directly translate to how everywhereblair has the top 100 starters ranked, therefore this article is not doctor approved.Please, blog, may I have some more?
