Officially, this is the 11.5th Razzballie ceremony, and our first socially distanced one. *looks out at the cardboard cutout audience* I see some familiar faces out there. There’s the cutout that sells me car wax at Pep Boys. Good to see you! Figure you’d like some recycled jokes, since you’re all made of biodegradable material. *eerie silence* Okay, moving on. I’ll be your host for the ceremony after A-Rod backed out. Turns out he couldn’t host, he’s just a parasite! It’s all right he’s a no-show, you can’t spell ghosting without host. You also can’t spell hostage, but no one is forcing you to stay for the award show. You’re going to want to, though, because without these awards, you’ll have no idea who was the best and worst hitters and pitchers in this absurdly abbreviated year, and you’ll be left giving out your own awards and no one cares if your “Low sodium tomato soup in a sourdough bowl” won your “Whitest Lunch Of All-Time” award. Stop making up fake awards! Leave that to me. Anyway, here’s the year-end awards for the best and worst of fantasy baseball:

Fantasy AL Most Valuable Player – Before we announce our first winner, I just want to introduce the accountants from Kipnis, Tellez and Zimmermann. Stop giving them the evil eye, German Marquez! Your AL MVP this year is — drumroll please…OH EM GEE! It’s a tie! Jose Ramirez and Jose Abreu! *one masked janitor shakes a cardboard cutout to simulate clapping and the cutout falls over* Great! What excitement! Anyone that knows anything about the Player Rater (how the awards are, uh, awarded) knows that it takes a pretty massive year from a player to do this well without any speed, i.e., a guy like, say, Jo-Jo-Ram can hit some homers, steal some bases and hit for a good, but not great average, and do well on the Player Rater because he’s filling five categories. This is why I also believe if the season lasted 162 games, Jose Abreu would’ve struggled to stay in 1st for the AL MVP, because someone who stole 25 bags and hit homers *cough* Jose Ramirez *cough* would’ve overtaken him, but congrats to Abreu and Jo-Jo-Ram. Anything you want to say, guys? Jose Abreu leans into the microphone, “I am better than Frank Thomas. Yo soy El Grande Dolor.” Oh, snap! Jo-Jo-Ram leans and says, “Same.” What?

Fantasy NL Most Valuable Player – The NL Fantasy MVP, like the AL one, doesn’t take into account team wins and “intangibles.” Nope, here at Razzball HQ, we look at tangibles! And those aren’t fungible! This is commonsensible. Uh-oh, I’m stick in an ‘ible loop, what can I do? Listen to the Bible on Audible? What’s this in my pocket? A rookie card of Oddibe McDowell? Okay, I’m done. The winner is… This was a tight race between teammates Manny Machado and Fun the Jewels, and NL West’er Mookie Best — imagine if Machado had another 100 games to lose interest, he would’ve ended up around the 150th best player. But, sneaking it out, on the final day of the season, was the one and only Trea Turner! He didn’t steal bases like he’s been known to, and, with MLB not testing for PEDs this year, who’s to say where the power came from, but Treat Urner gave us multiple treats. Thank you for your treat giving, Treat!

Fantasy AL Cy Young – Wanna talk about how terrible pitching was to draft early this year? Shane Bieber isn’t just your top pitcher, it’s not close, and the difference between him and the 2nd best starter is the same difference between Rafael Devers and David Peralta. Anyone who tells you that you have to draft a top pitcher, honestly, doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Not much around it. Only thing I’ll hear in regards to top pitchers sucking this season is this was a weird year, and that, honestly, I’m not hearing either.

Fantasy NL Cy Young – This came down to the final week of the season between Yu Darvish and Trevor Bauer, and to dab the Abdullah the Butcher cut on my forehead with salt, Liam Hendricks was about as valuable as the top two starters in the NL. Hopefully we have some idea whether or not there will be a DH in the NL at the start of the 2021 season. My guess is it’s here to stay, since it helps hitters get more money in arbitration. Any hoo! Yu won! Sorry, you might want to take this off text-to-speech. You didn’t win anything. Yu Darvish did.

Fantasy AL Least Valuable Player – An incredible, first-time-only, four-way tie between Jose Altuve/Alex Bregman/Aaron Judge/Giancarlo Stanton! Way to not go, guys! That is a crapfecta of garbage that was a non-stop Train to Busan to hell. You’re all zombies, or no? Because, I’ll be honest, you seem like zombies. All four of them would’ve done us a great favor by opting out in July and not even bothering. Isan Diaz or Jose Altuve? I’m taking Isan Diaz, and I think the Astros would’ve too, when you consider defense. How about Giancarlo and Judge? They’re like two giant motorcycles without kickstands. Try to leave them standing upright for a second. Go ahead and walk away for a moment. *both come crashing down*

Fantasy NL Least Valuable Player – This was going to be a joint award to Pete Alonso and Ketel Marte, because all year I’ve wanted to smoke a joint forgetting I drafted both of these schmohawks on literally every team. What was I thinking? Am I dumb or did I just think I was staying at a Holiday Inn Express in the preseason, but a large truck moved revealing it was a Holiday Inn Expressionless and that’s why the guy at the front desk refused to smile? Like to see that Holiday Inn Expressionless innkeeper now, if he also owned Albombso and Ketel Marte. Try not to frown, you jerkoff! However, in the final weekend, Alonso moved himself into the top 100 overall, and can’t be considered totally useless. Ketel though? Oh, yeah, I’m drinking.

Most Valuable Player Based On Draft Price – When I go over all the position recaps, I’ll talk more about this, but there wasn’t a ton of shocking surprises in the very top of the “they got pops.” Since it was a 60-game season, I was expecting more guys out of nowhere. For absolutely shocking there was Adam Duvall, but in most leagues he wasn’t even drafted, so saying he was great based on draft price is silly. You didn’t own him in July. You might not have owned him in August. Nope, there was one guy who was a complete afterthought, but was drafted. Just barely, when all other ‘better’ options were taken. The one guy this year who got hot out of the gate and never cooled off, the guy who wasn’t even guaranteed playing time to start the year, the one, the only–Award audience, “Open the damn envelope already!” The winner is Luke Voit. Last year, this award went to another New York 1st baseman, Pete Alonso, which is a shorthand way of saying I’m never drafting Luke Voit in 2021. I kid. Or do I?

Fantasy POS – Because Least Valuable Player doesn’t do one man justice. One man who ruined us due to an illegal use of trust. A guy who is still swinging at a fastball and knocking it weakly to 2nd base.  The one and only (thankfully)…Kris Bryant. It’s actually kinda of amazing how awful his season stats are: 20/4/11/.206/0 in 131 ABs. Madison Bumgarner had better seasons as a hitter in less at-bats.

Fantasy Hitter You Most Likely Dropped and Picked Up A Dozen Times – “Hmm, Dylan Moore seems to be hitting, maybe I should grab him…I’m grabbing Dylan Moore!  Wow, this guy is amazing!…Is this a breakout? Holy crap, he’s so amazing! Hmm, he seems to have cooled off, goodbye, Dylan Moore…Hello, Moore!…Goodbye…Hello…Goodbye…Hello…I’m in a waiver wire time loop!…Someone help me! Is this Dark on Netflix? Why am I so confused? I want Moore–Gah, no I don’t!”

Player You Had Forever and Most Likely Should’ve Dropped – This year Mike Moustakas was a Moistasskiss of death.

Player On The Top Of Your Waivers That You Just Couldn’t Bring Yourself to Pick Up – Kole Calhoun. This year Kole Calhoun was about as valuable as Devers, Chazz Noir and George Springer. Actually, he was better than all three of those guys.

Pitcher You Streamed So Much You Ended Up Owning Him – “Okay, I’m going to give a Whirlybird Streamer Streamstein to Dane Dunning, but if he’s bad, I’m losing him so fast it’s gonna hurt him.” And that’s the story of how you ended owning Dame Dane Dunning for two months. (Only for that trust to backfire in the worst of ways in the last week. Thanks, Dame Dane!)

Player You Were Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop From, But Thankfully It Never Did – “I’m fine, fine, fine, fine — FINE! — with Wil Myers as my 5th outfielder, but if someone else appears, he’s outta here so fast I don’t have time to think of something that would be outta here faster.” Then Myers marched to a top 30 overall season, and said nay to the naysayers and yay to the yaysayers.

Player You Were Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop From and It Ended Up Kicking You in the Groin – “What’s that, 12 straight innings now? Josh Hader may be a lot of things, but I believe he really is a pitcher who won’t allow a hit or run all year.” *two weeks later* “I might’ve been drinking too much Haderade.”

Player You Were Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop From and When It Did You Were Okay With It – This is a legit goofy year (two months?) for this award, but Brandon Lowe wasn’t quite as good as his August, but he had ten homers going into September, so, yeah, he wasn’t a sixty homer hitter (10 HRs/month prorated over a usual six-month season — “Did someone say prorating?” Not now, Mr. Prorater!), but Lowe was still decent in September.

Player You Traded Away That You Most Regretted – “That was a fun month of July for Manny Machado, but he can’t possibly keep this up, so I’m selling him for Cody Bellinger, which seems more than fair! See ya later, Machado! Hello, Cody!”

Player You Traded For That You Most Regretted –  “Greyus Albristo! Listen to this, I can get Austin Meadows for Manny Machado. I have to do this, right? Rhetorical! Of course, I do!”

Top SAGNOF – Brandon Kintzler/Dylan Moore – Remember, the essence of SAGNOF is cheap saves and steals. No one came close to cheapness on saves than Brandon Kintzler and Ryan Pressly, who wasn’t even the closer for the Astros when the season began, and ended up about as valuable as Josh Hader. Kintzler, however, edged him out in other categories, and took home the top SAGNOF award, which is all what we would’ve predicted back in March. Honorable honorable mention: Trevor Rosenthal. For steals on the SAGNOF tip, Mondesi and Trevor Story were great for steals, but they were not cheap. Jonathan Villar was great for steals, but not cheap and hideous in every other category. Dylan Moore, how’sever, was as free as every person who’s ever been inspired by New Hampshire’s license plate to ditch electricity and move into a log cabin.

Remember That Feeling You Had When You Walked In On Your Parents Having Sex, This Pitcher Gave You That Feeling Every Fifth Day – Matthew Boyd. May Boyd accidentally have a tub of mayonnaise dropped on him, then get caught in an elevator with Pablo Sandoval.

    Wow, you weren’t joking about MadBum having better seasons than Bryant. That’s hilarious! And sad.

      Haha, right? And that’s with Bryant hitting two homers in the final weekend

  2. D Fresh says:

    Dansby with the honorable mention for best draft value.
    Javy and Yoan gave plenty of ulcers this year. (luckily not on many of my teams)
    Should have dropped Edman plenty of times but played the homer hold.

      Yeah, Javy was awful too…The entire Cubs’ lineup honestly was not good — Yoan was disappointing as well

        (link)

        Much thanks to you and Rudy. Couldn’t have done it without you two for shizzle.

        Honestly though…not sure how I did it. My DC teams were between 250 and 1000 overall until this one broke out the last 3 weeks or so. Mondesi’s late surge helped. Could have done without Lance Lynn’s final effort.

        A boba is on the way for you two yay-hoos! It’s less than you deserve, but hey, it’s still the APOCK-a-LIPS after all.

    I’d like to nominate my Drafted Team from a 10-TM NL-Only 6×6 ROTO.

    Player and round. Luckily this was a cheap buy-in.

    Baez (2)
    Strasburg (3)
    Muncy (4)
    Doolittle (6)
    Akiyama (8)
    Edman (9)
    Kingery (10)
    Weaver (11)
    Kela (14)
    Thames (15)
    Betances (16)
    Alfaro (18)
    DeSclafani (19)
    Crick (23)
    Harold Ramirez (24)
    Camargo (25)

    My other picks weren’t total disappointments or may have had some value. Needless to say I barely finished 8 and only 4 points from 10.

    Acuña (1)
    Jansen (5)
    Lamet (7)
    Burnes (12)
    May (13)
    Yastrzemksi (17)
    Gausman (20)
    A. Dickerson (21)
    P. Lopez (22)

      • Pugs & Slugs says:

        LOL! Yeah, probably could have done better with the auto pilot for Airplane drafting for me.

          Haha…Otto Pilot!

      • Pugs & Slugs says:
        (link)

        Here’s the really sucky kicker. We postponed doing our 10-TM, NL-Only Aution 5×5 (OBP), keeper league. All guys from 2019 still eligible.

        My keepers going into this season were:

        Acuña (42)
        Corbin (17)
        Yates (12)
        Keone (5)
        Escobar (13)

        Would have been a complete disaster other than Acuña and maybe(?) Corbin. I have no real other value going into the auction next year. I could possibly keep Hampson (13)and Lowrie (6).

        Not the value like I thought I had going into the year pre injuries.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Prolly Corbin still tho barely, and at least you’re aware of the problems now

  8. Lubes says:
    (link)

    Grey! I was too busy with services yesterday to post, but…

    I WON BOTH OF MY LEAGUES!!!

    In my roto auction keeper, it was pretty much coast to coast- I was in 1st by the 2nd week or so- starting rotation of Glasnow, Darvish, Lamet, Gallen, Gioloto led to wins in Ks, ERA and WHIP. For offense Trout was great obv. and Bellinger and Hiura were mediocre by the end, but waiver pickups of Lowe, Teoscar, Grisham, and Pollock were keys.

    In my other keeper league, we did a one-off H2H redraft this year. Lindor didn’t pull his weight, but Degrom in 2nd round was great. Late round picks of Lowe and K. Lewis were great. Made the playoffs as #4, but it was really picking up Mondesi in early Sept. that made the biggest difference. Sweated out the last day with Hirano, but held on!

    Thanks so much for the advice over the year- really couldn’t have done it without you!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Congrats! Nicely done, Lubes! No problem! Some real nice pickups in there!

  9. LadyScorpio says:
    (link)

    Great list! Indeed, Kris Bryant helped to tank 2 of my RCL teams along with Judge and Bellinger. Grateful to have had Beiber as a keeper from 2019. I’m tempted to keep Gallen as well.

    Thanks again for ALL of your great articles and the great work that you do throughout the fantasy baseball season!!!! I appreciate it and then some!!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      No problem! Yeah, Kris Bryant was a team killer

  10. braves uk says:
    (link)

    Thanks Grey and your fellow commenters!

    Strange year, but your advice and the RB tools kept me in the hunt all year in all my leagues and a first ever 1st place in my dynasty league.

    Grateful as always!

      No problem! Awesome! Congrats!

  11. LadyScorpio says:

    1 more thing…it’s quite possible that Santander would’ve gotten the Most Valuable Player Based On Draft Price placement over Voit, had he not gotten injured before the season ended. He was a surprise and came cheaper/had a lower draft position than Voit.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, 100%, he was having himself a nice breakout until the injury came

  12. Denver90 says:
    (link)

    The guys in my league all said you can’t win back to back years. Well, I proved them wrong…LAST YEAR…and now I’ve got three! Thanks to Grey and Razzball for your daily entertainment and insight. I doubted I could do it with the guys I drafted in March, but the 60-game season was just what the doctor ordered. Kept Bieber, JoRam, and Acuna, drafted Manny, Abreu, Lynn…I guess that was enough of a foundation to get it done. Thanks again, if my league mates don’t kick me out I’ll see you next year.

    Grey thanks for another fun year and Thank you to the rest of the writer team. Listened to some of the podcasts you guys are some funny dudes.

    What do you think of the playoffs. I can see a lot of upsets similar to how basketball and hockey have been. With no fans and no true home field advantage. Any upsets you predict?
    I think the white sox and the reds can make an upset in the first round. i wanna say the marlins but that may be a reach lol Twins are favorited but they look to take out astros, hopefully they do

      Cards

      Yes, Reds, White Sox and think Padres are in trouble due to SP injuries

  18. Just want to thank my co-manager Rudy for managing all my teams in my money leagues this year. I blindly followed Hittertron, Streamonator and ROS rankings and with the exception of one team, finished 1st or 2nd in every League. Also want to thank all the Writers who are totally accessible to all of us and more than willing to assist us with any queries that we might have. Need to especially thank Matt for all the solid advice on how to go about playing in RCL Leagues.
    A big thanks to my fellow commenters who kept me up to date with injury news and Roster changes throughout the season. Last, but certainly not least, to you Grey. You have advised us and entertained us with your knowledge and humour throughout. You are the heart and soul, of this the best fantasy baseball site on the web.
    Looking forward to next season already, and wishing all of you good fortune from here in the UK.

    Hey Grey,

    Just wanted to say thanks for all the help this year!

    Won my league, couldn’t have done it without ya!

      Awesome! Congrats!

    Voit (12th Round) very worthy, stayed healthy and consistently cranked. Teoscar (23rd Round) missed 9 games and wasn’t as dominant as Luke, but iImpressive. Count Hiura as a guy I stuck with (along with Albombno) to a fault. I will be targeting many of your award winners next season! Thanks Grey

      Yup, teoscar was worthy too, had a great short season

    Honorable mention to my good pal Lou Gu Ju, who I look forward to drafting again late next season.

      Grey says:

      Yup! Worthy value pick too!

      Good call!

    Drafted Baez, Meadwos, Ketel, Moncada, Laureano, Taylor Rogers on the same team. Oof!

    I had Myers everywhere though.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Haha, yeouch! I had Laureano and Ketel on a bunch of teams, and was benching Laureano and glad Marte was injured by the end of the season

      • Fred Garvin MP says:
        (link)

        I had Ramon on 3 or 4 teams. Ketel on 2 or 3. Whoopsies! The Ketel injury was a mercy killing of sorts.

        Yeah, that team I mentioned above was where I dropped all those guys after 5 or so weeks then barely missed first because I Joe Maddoned myself 10-15 times over the “season”, including 3 crucial, but fairly well-reasoned, errors in the final 2 days. I literally had the stats to win the league on the bench on the final day.

          The best thing to happen was Ketel got injured, and that’s saying a lot…

          That sucks on sonavabenching, and is especially painful… That sorta thing seems more likely when a guy can go from the worst 1B to a top 10 1B like Alonso in the matter of five games

    I know you’re against drafting pitchers so early but I have a chance to keep Bieber in the third round next year. I have Clarke Schmidt as a lifetime keeper, and even though I can take Paddack in the 9th next year, I don’t feel comfortable with him next year unless he adds another pitch or two in his repertoire.

    Do you think it would still be worthwhile to keep Bieber for the 3rd round? Seems like a pretty good deal with an ace.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’m against drafting them, but 3rd round for Bieber is good value, so I’d keep him

      • LenFuego says:
        (link)

        Yeah, Bieber will probably go in the 1st round next year, and certainly no lower than the 2nd, so that is definitely good value. If one’s philosophy is 3rd round is too high to draft a pitcher, you still keep him and then work a trade for a 1st or 2nd round position player with an owner who does not share that philosophy.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          100%

  24. Grisham already going in the 4th round. Can easily see him juicing up to the 3rd and 2nd by March. Too early to give him the Alonso award for 2021? Not that I don’t like him, but that’s too early!

    On the other hand…that is currently separating the curds from the whey in a warm lemon juice bath…I haven’t heard nary a peep about the top 2nd baseman this year from anyone. To whit, I’m happy about that and will probably own him on every team next year.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      That’s insane…Really, he’s going that high?

    Hey Grey!

    Tuner for the win! After 2 awful weeks towards the end we rose like a Phoenix and won the league! Thanks for a great “season” and here’s to hoping next year gets back to something like normal.

    Hi Grey,

    Thanks for another season of entertainment. In my 5×5 roto league (13 teams) would you rather have Keston Hiura or Maeda next year? Can keep them for one more year.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      No problem! Hiura

  27. Slew says:

    Thanks Grey! Have some BOBAs.

      Thanks so much, Slew!

    Good stuff agree most of that. Crazy what a shortened season can look like. I’m not looking too much into some down years of the studs (Breg, Cody, Yelich) though. They never got to reach their 2 month span where they just catch fire.

    Hadn’t paid attention to the new playoffs much until now….wow wtf… So every friggin division winner has to enter the wildcards, only thing they get is a higher seed? What an utter joke! No doubt MLB will be thinking this is the way forward, yep way to reward the leaders guys. Lets just hope the division winners all get knocked out first round to .500 teams so this sham of a playoff structure can be exposed for what it is- no respect for Manfred if this was his atrocious idea. Numbskull.

    Anyone play on Fantrax? Commishing there first time this year and use Fantrax treasurer but see no way to issue any payouts yet. And I’m due some $$$ too!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Yeah, prolly should take the whole year with a grain of salt…

      I play on Fantrax but I don’t use their treasurer, so not sure on it…

    You were right Grey! I won my ‘year long’ league again this year to go back-to-back!
    That Staff of Darvish, Lynn, Gallen, Fried and Bundy really did it.
    Next year it’s trifecta time!
    Thanks again Garner Minschew look alike!
