Sometimes I’ll wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. It’s the age, I’m told. Then, with only the faintest of amber glowing from behind my Squidward Tentacles nightlight, I catch a glimpse of myself. It’s the middle of the night, yet my hair is still perfectly coiffed; my mustache tenderly manicured; my eyes a dazzling shade of hazel, and I can’t help but be taken aback by my handsomeness. Well, instead of myself greeting myself every night from now on, I’ve printed out my Tout Wars team and hung it from the mirror, because it is sexier than even I could ever hope to be. Frankly, I’m worried that I might be in my office when nature calls for a twinkle, and head into the other room to find my much older wife making out with my printed-out team. “Get off the printed name of Juan Soto, Cougs! That’s my fantasy team you’re dry humping!” For those unaware, it’s 5×5, with OBP instead of AVG, two-catcher, 12-team NL-Only league, so don’t ask me how much Mike Trout went for. Anyway, here’s my Tout Wars draft recap:

C: Austin Hedges $1
C: Manny Pina $1
1B: Cody Bellinger $41
2B: Gavin Lux $15
3B: Ke’Bryan Hayes $1
SS: Nico Hoerner $3
CI: Josh VanMeter $1
MI: Keston Hiura $23
OF: Trent Grisham $15
OF: Ketel Marte $26
OF: David Peralta $13
OF: Juan Soto $40
UT: Mike Yastrzemski $7
Bench (free): Monte Harrison

P: Dinelson Lamet $13
P: Garrett Richards $7
P: Marcus Stroman $11
P: Kenley Jansen $16
P: Johnny Cueto $6
P: Pablo Lopez $6
P: Steven Matz $6
P: Tyler Mahle $2
P: Sandy Alcantara $4
P: Kevin Gausman $2
Bench: Ryne Stanek, Kyle Wright, Tyler Rogers

I’M GOING TO TRY TO BE IMPARTIAL, BECAUSE I’M JUST A SCREAMING VOICE IN YOUR HEAD RATHER THAN ACTUALLY YOU, BUT HOW DO YOU HAVE AN OFFENSE THAT LOOKS LIKE A 12-TEAM MIXED LEAGUE IN AN NL-ONLY LEAGUE?

I know, Mr. Al Caps, it is a gloriously-gorgeous, insanely-beautiful, adverbially-adjective team. My War Room totals (free with the Razzball subscriptions) are as follows:

You see the 1st line of 32s and then 16s? Those are the goals. You’re shooting for a 32 in all hitting categories and a 16 in all pitching. To put the exact same information a third way, I overshot everything, except Ks, Wins and Saves. To make things seem even more in my favor, because this is Razzball, and a Tout recap, so if I’m not touting shizz, what am I even doing? Look at this:

Those are my War Room totals prior to me drafting Nico Hoerner, Ke’Bryan Hayes and Josh VanMeter. See, players can subtract from your totals just as much as they add to them, so once I added those last three submarines, my totals went down.  Look at those runs, homers and RBIs prior to the ditch diggers. That’s an echoing chef’s kiss from Times Square that reverberates out to the outlying boroughs because no one is on the street right now to dampen the sound. Naturally, I do have Nico, Ke’Bryan, and Josh VanMeter or NKBJVM or New Kids on the Block of Just Very Meh, but the War Room is assuming nothing from them. Rightfully, perhaps, but if they actually produce my team will set new offensive records for a 100-game season.

ARE YOU ALLUDING TO THE CORONAVIRUS AKA COVID-19? BY THE WAY, IS THIS LIKE DEER MEAT IS CALLED VENISON? WHICH ONE IS VENISON, COVID-19 OR CORONAVIRUS?

Covid-19 is 100% the venison in this example, and, yes, I’m alluding to a shortened season, due to the virus. I don’t know how any of this will play out. No one does. I’m guessing Nico Hoerner gets the job over Jason Kipnis, because if the Cubs only need to win 60 games to get to the playoffs, why not roll out their best bet for that? Does sending prospects, who are ready like Nico Hoerner, to the minors make any sense? He’s already debuted for the Cubs. They’re going to send him down to the minors for another whole season? Because the season will be shortened, so anyone going to the minors is not going to have much time to show anything down there. Similarly, will Ke’Bryan Hayes be in the minors for 70 games? Remember, minor league seasons will be even shorter if the MLB is shortened, because rosters will likely still expand, if they’re allowed to by law, and I just said that without even joking. It makes sense for the Pirates to play Colin Moran? Why? They tried him last year and he did nothing. Plus, the Pirates are already working on a contract with Hayes, so he could become a no-doubter for the majors like Luis Robert. As for Josh VanMeter, well, he’s Just Very Meh. Speaking of Colin Moran, someone on Sunday during my draft said he was the “steal of the draft” for $3. Something I had seen before, but didn’t fully articulate previously is that any time someone says “steal of the draft,” that is the pinnacle of the joy you’re going to get from that player. No one ever says, “Cody Bellinger for $41? Steal of the draft!” Instead they’ll say something like, “Colin Moran for $3?! Steal of the draft!” No, in fact, he’s not. No one cares who owns Colin Moran.

OKAY, SO ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, AS IS THE CASE WITH MOST OF YOUR TEAMS, WHAT’S UP WITH YOUR PITCHING STAFF? YOU’RE NOT EVEN PRETENDING TO DRAFT ACES ANYMORE.

I was optimistic we’d see baseball on May 1st. Now I’m actively rooting for June 1st. I’m not a doctor, scientist…Okay, I can’t even realistically play one of those in a schlocky high school staged production of Outbreak. But if we get 80-100 games of baseball, starting pitchers are going to be incredibly devalued. Think about this, if Jacob deGrom throws 130 IP and Dinelson Lamet throws 110 IP, which one would you prefer? Okay, deGrom, but by a difference of $25? Because deGrom went for $38. When it was 220 IP vs. 150 IP, it was a pronounced difference, that I wouldn’t even argue. Now? Oh, I’m arguing it. Speaking of which, I’m going to go through all my position rankings and subtract sixty games worth of stats from my projections. My plan is to go around the field and look at how a delayed season will affect each position’s rankings, since this year will be different, and drafting will also have to be different. This is not ideal, obviously, but none of this is. Since it can be done automatically, I’ve already updated my top 500 for 2020 fantasy baseball with all players down to 100 games. Ronald Acuña Jr. is now lucky to go 25/25; I want to cry.

So I updated my “War Room” with your projections (and Steamer’s) for my ongoing RazzSlam draft. Interestingly. On the whole, it appears your new values with the shorter season boost the values of SPs at the expense of the RPs.

My offense is set with 7 of my 8 keepers,trust me! I wanted to pick a pitcher for my 8 keeper spot but Verlanders status is unclear. These are my 3 choices for 8th and final keeper. Scherzer $34. Verlander $11 or keep an 8th offensive player with Laureano $2. This means all offense and carry no pitchers as keeper. 8 team Auction league. My 7 keepers so far total $106 out of standard $260 auction budget

Cool team!! I would expect nothing less from the Master Lothario.

In my AL only keeper where we have no bench and everybody on your team has to play, I’ve got one position player opening and am trying to decide between Kyle Lewis, Clint Frazier, Nate Lowe, Chris Davis, Rio Ruiz, Morleand, Kristin Stewart, and Alex Gordon. Would you drop Brian Goodwin for a second one among these?

On the pitching side, two slots and trying to decide between Justus Shefflied, Gio, Trent Thornton, Patrick Sandoval, Chris Bassitt, and Tanner Roark.

Thanks in advance!!

Now that Verlander has had a procedure on his groin (Kate must have been out of town this week) do you see him recovering enough to keep him for $16 this year. His value has been down below that much but if he’s close to fully recovered from both issues he should be valued quite a bit higher. Thanks

Yahoo 10 team keeper with QS and OPS

6 keepers
1.Acuna
2.Trea Turner
3. Mondesi
4. Tatis
5. Soto
6?
Bregmen or Beiber(quality starts league)

torn between Bregman and Beiber. I have the 3rd pick in draft but both will probably be picked with first 2 picks. I know I have alot of SS but that doesn’t worry me.

Sorry for the long post…looking for help in who my keepers should be on this 12 team yahoo dynasty league. We keep 25 & that includes 5 NA slots This is roto 6X5 with OPS added to hitting and QS instead of W’s

Keeping: Arenado, JD Mart, Merrifield, Goldy, Rosario, Chapman, Dahl, Polanco, Walker as bats
then Buehler, Paddack, Thor, Bauer, Kluber, Heaney, Diaz, Robles, & Workman as arms.
My for sure NAs are : Waters, Luciano, K Robinson, & Carlson (although he may make the team)
For a total of 22

I need 3 more from Stanton (should probably be in there ), Segura, Cain, Yaz, Santander, Dubon as bats
or these arms: C Smith, Alcantara, Matz, Lugo, DeScaflani, Plesac & Shane Baz as my NA SP

Question for you,
If the season is something like 115-125 games are you moving towards more consistent hitters, or, more high variance guys (potential better ceilings and probable lower floors)?
I’m leaning towards more conservative guys a bit more but it’s more a gut feeling since all this is uncharted territory. Folks have no idea how good we have in terms of quality of play in today’s game. Good lord there were some terrible players who made it as big leaguers back then.
Thanks Razzball crew and hope this whole community gets through these times on the up swing.

Hey Grey,

Dynasty roster move question here and since I respect your opinion, wanted to see what you thought. Would you drop Aquino or Seth Brown for Ryan O’Hearn?

O’Hearn mashed in spring (5 bombs, .343 average, 1.252 OPS). I’m thinking he might have made the adjustments after last year’s implosion. Or maybe, like you say, the Spring Training stats are meaningless. Still, I don’t think Aquino even makes the Reds opening day roster and I absolutely cannot afford to give him a roster spot if he’s in the minors. I like Seth Brown. I see Matt Carpenter potential there. Similar age as when Carpenter figured it out.

So, knowing all this, what would you do? Would you cut either for O’Hearn?

Um, perhaps you are confusing our RCL with a different league, because I just checked my roster and I’m pretty sure it’s the best team in the history of fantasy baseball.

The subtraction of the stats is the easy part, just removal of a percentage from the Top 500. But when Grey says “My plan is to go around the field and look at how a delayed season will affect each position’s rankings…” that’s what you’re asking about and I think what he’s saying is that he’ll be working through that part, its not done yet.

I have a draft that’s gonna go off as regularly scheduled tonight, so I’m gonna do a bit of moving guys around the ranks.

My initial bump ups…. Stanton, Judge, Paxton, Clevinger, Verlander, Glasnow, MuCullers, Willie Calhoun

Bump down… Kyle Hendricks, etc…? As Grey noted, less of a reason to grab the steady arms like him that balance ratios across a large innings load. I’m not gonna drop Hendricks a ton, but I’m just not gonna make it a point to go after one or two of those types of SPs, as I usually would.

It’ll be interesting to see how these teams treat prospects when baseball gets going. I love the advantage of the typical long season and the time I have to churn and burn the bottom third of my roster. If there is only half a season of baseball, the advantage I have from streaming is less so. And I’m thinking that some teams that wouldn’t be expected to “go for it” will perhaps find it worthwhile to go forward with their best possible lineups from Opening Day.

A lot smarter and more informed minds will be commenting on things like that in the days ahead.

Hey Nux, you bring up a couple thoughts for real life baseball.

A team gets off to a hot start, now are they buyers or sellers at the trade deadline?

Is the MLB trade deadline going to change as far as the date goes?

How many teams in the playoffs? Could be reduced so regular season goes longer.

Will there be the old fashion doubleheaders with expanded rosters to 30?

Hard to have a draft strategy for fantasy baseball with so many unknowns.

I may well be wrong, but all I have done is updated the stats of the injured players to reflect a full season. I am aware that a value formula results in a pitcher with 2 starts not necessarily doubling his value in comparison to when he has one start and other vagaries in values. I fail to see how only having half the starts is not comparable to only having half the ABs. As I am no expert I am certainly open to be persuaded differently.

Just curious, but you seem to love Grisham more than your rankings and much more than his $-1 value. You are drafting him like he’s hotter than Stanton in every team. Are you paying up late for steals or do you believe he will easily out perform His projections?

Also, in a dynasty, would you rather have Devers or Wander Franco?

Thanks for updating the top 500.

I like your team and thought process on teams playing there rookies.

Good point on the SP’s and overall talent. I can compare it to my high school team I coach. If the field conditions are poor, (wet, lumpy infield, windy, cold) it is a disadvantage to the more talented team as the players can’t show their true skills in bad conditions. Same as a SP won’t be able to pitch as many innings/games to show his dominance.

Punting 3B again eh? All in all I liked it though. Getting 2 catchers for $2 that combined could hit 600 ABs (If Full season) is a steal and the rest of the bats are crazy.

Pitching staff is your normal Razz, but I like Lamet, Richards could be crazy good this year. He’s always had the stuff and in San Diego it’s gonna be beautiful. Plus, since his arm falls off half way through the season anyways normally he could actually make i to September this year.

And look Matz is only your #4 starter on this team. He’s gone from your ace to your #3 to your #4 all without sacrificing offense. Solid improvement

Also heard possibility of running regular season well into October and then playoffs in Phoenix, Miami, Dallas and get this…Milwaukee.

Hey Grey! Thanks to you and RB nation for continuing the great content and comments. Nice to have the distraction…

Appreciate you updating the top 500 already. Were all players pro-rated by the same percentage, even guys who are injured? If so that may need some ‘by hand’ adjustments. EG Ohtani SP is projected at 60+ IP; that could be closer to 100 IP if he is recovered fully by start of hypothetical 100 game season.

Awesome report and totes agree with your analysis on Tout. Totes!

a. Really scared about my RCL #11 that has good starting pitching, the hitting’s not bad but I would have waited 2 rounds to draft my first SP knowing what we know regarding the start of the season. Right? Put my mind at ease, please Louise.

b. Stupid COVID-19. I’d want just 1 share of that IPO when the vaccine for COVID-19 goes online on the NYSE. Do you know someone who can hook me up?

c. MLB quote of the day for May 12, 1988

‘Lou Brock was a great base stealer but today I am the greatest.’

Rickey Nelson Henley Henderson, aka The Man of Steal easily the greatest leadoff hitter of all time. He broke so many records but his greatest legacy was 3 seasons (!!) of 100 runs, 100 walks and 100 SBs. No one has come close in the modern era to doing it even once.
