Hello, Razzball nation, welcome back for another fantasy baseball podcast where Nick and I talk about cruise ships.  If that doesn’t help you win your league, you may never.  I’m sorry, knowing which countries Nick used to visit when he was a cruise ship director is dire shizz.  Think of it this way:  do you go with Nick Franklin or Josh Rutledge?  Look at the Player Rater or the Hitter-Tron?  Or go by Nick’s tales of the high seas?  Think the answer is pretty obvious here.  I’m told there was fantasy baseball talk on the rest of the show, but first a stand-up comic and stylist to pro athletes, Robert Jodoin, joined Nick as the first ever in-studio guest.  They discussed what type of athletes want what type of clothes (surprise:  hockey players like flannel).  Also, Robert is officially available to Razzball Nation as a style consultant.  He’ll help pick out what blazer to wear with your sweatpants.  Then, Rudy and Nick discussed how the combination of Rudy’s tools are now affectionately being called “The Machine.” (I thought this was Andre the Giant in a mask, but Nick says, “Watch an episode of Person of Interest.”  I don’t know what that is, but I’m gonna assume it’s something you watch.  Context clues!)  And how The Machine likes Travis Snider and John Danks.  Who took The Machine to Tijuana and messed up its circuits with tequila?  Let’s just say, the Hitter-Tron is a bad influence.  Oh, and Nick sold the studio sponsorship to a divorce lawyer in Dallas.  In related news, I may get married in Dallas to save myself some legwork.  Anyway, here’s the Razzball Podcast (now with a fashion stylist — are we E?):

    I asked you this a week ago but forgot something . My league keeps track of quality starts instead of wins. Do your 6 keepers still stay the same? And if you don’t mind could you give a short reasoning behind not keeping Harvey. Thanks in advance, your writeup is a great way to start the day

    Players: Fielder, Kinsler, Machado, bautista, ellsbury, Heyward, Felix Hernandez, Harvey,

    6 Keepers you picked: Fielder, Machado, Bautista, Ellsbury, Heyward, Felix

    (I put this on the other page and saw your disclaimer)

      Cause bats are better to keep, keepers stay the same as of now…

      @Ziggy: bautista or ells gotta go for Harvey if you ask me, not just basing it on Today either…. ells is always a hammy pull away from missing the year and Bautista? IDK, harvey seems like the real deal…..

    I’m thinking of offering a trade to get Miggy. I’m would offer Machado & Desmond. He has Yunel Escobar @ SS. I would still have Segura. Thoughts..???

    • Jason says:

      Grey says:
