Appreciate everyone who has taken this multi-month journey with Donkey Teeth and I as we try to figure out exactly what this Patreon podcast will be. We started with interviewing ex-athletes (Lenny Dykstra), filmmakers, comedians, Prospect Itch and just Donkey and I shooting the shizz about what we’re watching on TV during a pandemic. Last week, we brought on friend of Razzball and comedian, Billy Hurley, and I secretly fell in love. I think it was our best show and the format seemed to click. Talk about the news that no one else wants to talk about or, rather, no one else should be talking about because they are ludicrous news stories. It’s the It Only Sounds Like Fake News Newshour!

How’s everyone liking us talking to a comedian on Patreon podcasts? I’m loving it. Can I say that or is it immodest? You know what, I don’t think immodest is bad, because I don’t know what immodest even means, so there! This week we welcomed, Billy Hurley, a NYC-based comedian. Wow, such credits! I kid, Billy’s awesome. Here’s how I know Billy:  He was a fan of Razzball and I randomly followed him on Twitter and he made me laugh a lot, so now we’re like BFFs. Not really, but don’t tell him. Here’s a sample of a Billy Hurley tweet:

Rudy Gamble stops by the Goin’ Deep podcast to talk about the multitude of drafts going on. Of course, B_Don and Donkey Teeth have to ask Rudy about his RazzSlam draft and his general strategy.

The guys then get Rudy to explain his projections down from the initial ratios to how the player rater works. They also ask about Rudy’s tools from the draft war room to the in season management tools that are just as key to Rudy’s success as the draft tools and projections.

Then, it’s time to discuss Rudy’s mixed LABR draft.  He explains how he approaches his draft for different leagues and the adjustments he makes year to year. Donkey Teeth questions a couple of draft picks in Chris Sale and Cavan Biggio before we jump into Rudy’s team and where his strengths and weaknesses may be.

Cans and holes, Cans and holes, Astros gotta have their cans and holes.
The Springer, the Pinto, and the former Saint Verlander,
They’ll hit the can on the bottom while we’re swinging at heaters.
Nachos, Hot Dogs on Houston’s field,
They won’t go down cuz Manfred says no.
They won around the league from port to port.
Every time they won, Kate Upton got a JV quart.

Back from break, B_Don and Donkey grab their sausages and dig right in on some genius all-star break ideas. For profiles this week, the guys look at 2018 vs 2019 for two under-performing starting pitchers: Jack Flaherty & Zack Wheeler.
The Ditka dudes profiled Flaherty on a podcast last season if you’re looking for a more in detailed description of his offerings, demeanor, and more. For this show, Donkey Teeth explains what he thinks went on with Flaherty in the first half and why the Cardinals’ youngster is his favorite buy-low pitcher for the second half. Then, B_Don breaks down Wheeler’s repertoire and looks into the numbers from his 2019 first half compared to his dominant second half last year. Should you be buying Zack Wheeler also? Find out now on the one and only Fantasy Sausage Podcast.
The Sausage Bros also run through some quick pick up recommendations to round out the show. Taste that sausage.

Grey is down to his last resort and invited B_Don to come on and guest host. The Fantasy Master Lothario makes his case for Phil Collins as the greatest musician of all time. To be fair, he does have the greatest 11 beat drum solo EVER.

After some music talk off the top, we talk about the game for the chaps across the pond, and the announcement that Vlad Jr. will be in the HR derby. Grey and B_Don both give you their thoughts on Frankie Montas for next season and talk about some of the exciting young prospects entering the game.

The guys get into a Yordan evaluation for ROS and where he fits in the rankings along with what leagues you should be targeting recent call-ups Zac Gallen, Logan Allen, Bobby Bradley, and how the Mountain Mets will screw up the Brendan Rodgers/Garrett Hampson situation this time. So, if you can hear Grey calling in the air tonight….. Oh Lord….
