This Week In Razz, Week 4

At this point, we're almost a month through the 2016 MLB season.  We are getting close to the point where patience is wearing thin on players who have started slow.  I'm looking at you Justin Upton!  Upton is far from the only player who has struggled through the first month of the season and I'm sure everyone has at least one player on their roster who is letting them down...

DraftKings: Which Ace Do You Want?

Hello everyone, Happy May and welcome to Sunday! We have another large slate, with 15 games on the All-Day docket, and 10 games on the Main Slate. We have a interesting case on our hands today, as there are many games Vegas lists at 6.5 O/U. Why is this? Well, that's because we have a slate full of many high-priced aces, as Madison Bumgarner, Noah Syndergaard, Chris Sale, Max...

Baseballs Best Leadoff Hitters

Embed from Getty Images Having a reliable leadoff hitter is important once a game. But these guys also get the most opportunities at the plate so you better make sure that guy can hit in any situation, as well as being a spark plug in the 1st inning. Every team has a different approach with their leadoff hitter.  Some managers just slot their fastest player at the top of their...

Two-Start Pitchers, Week 5: The Dark Knight Returns

"Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio? Our nation turns it's lonely eyes to you." Woo. Woo. Woo! Welp, I don't know that even Joltin' Joe could help the Yanks this year, but across town in Flushing ole Simon and Garfunkel may change their tune, because baseball nation is awaiting the return of one of its aces. New York's in need of a hero (aren't they always?), and I'm not talking...

DraftKings: #LATOS

If you happen to be a non-millennial reading this then you remember a time when # meant “Pound” and didn’t mean “Hashtag”.  If you are a millennial you’ve likely already skipped this intro and skimmed the rest of the picks.  After all, you’re entitled to win at DFS with minimal research and time invested.  The DFS sites owe it to you, just like your boss owes it...

You Conley Live Once

Adam Conley threw 7 2/3 innings, of "exciting" no-hit baseball Friday night, striking out seven Brewers en route to his first win of the season. Manager Don Mattingly pulled Conley after 116 pitches and left it up to Miami's bullpen to blow Conley's no-hitter. Sigh, the Miami fan(s) need someone to cheer for now that their star player Dee "I Didn't Know We Couldn't Do That"...

OPS Leaguers Unite! Hot Dog Breath Or Hot Dog Breath? (And Go Get Ben Paulsen.)

My wife and I have a long running joke on what’s worse, Hot Dog breath or hot dog breath?  Hot dogs are a requirement for me at the ballpark, but the last time I was there, I gleaned some interesting information about the difference between the jumbo dog and the regular dog.  That is, there is no difference.  At least not at my local stadium, named after a terrible beer.  I...

Jose Abuyeu

Yeah, Justin Upton will hit six homers all year and .170.  Yup, Jason Hammel will have an ERA under one.  You betcha, Gregory Polanco will bat after the pitcher by September.  Okay, on that last one, I don't want to jinx anything, so let's just say I'm being sarcastic and I don't need no Polanco batting low in the order.  Double negatives be damned!  Finally, Jose Abreu is...

Points Leagues: Sean’s a Manaea(ter)

Watch out boy she'll chew you up. Oh-oh, here he comes. He's a maneater. I own Sean Manaea in every points league to which I am a member. Why does proper grammar sound so stupid sometimes. I considered writing the rest of this post in ebonics, but I'm afraid I'd offend at least one of my remaining seven readers. Then I'd be down to six and I think that's when Grey puts the red tag...

Frankencatcher: Catcher Targets for Non-Buster Posey Owners

It’s 2016, and that means that most of us will have to make some moves throughout the year to address the catcher position. Long gone are the glory days of 2004 when the top 10 catchers could all be counted on for double digit home runs and an average above .280. In 2004, an already aging Mike Piazza rated as the 10th best catcher with 20 home runs and a .266 average (See: Doping...

DraftKings: Do do do do do…Manaea Manaea!

  I'm not the first to pander to our Muppets roots with Sean Manaea and I'm sure I won't be the last. I mean, when Russian Trololo went viral, I thought to myself 'how did Mahna Mahna not win this role first? This is America! *Salutes flag, eats apple pie, cheers for individuality while getting ticked at hipsters*. That said, if I AM the first to pander, you know I'm totally...

Miami Marlins 2B Dee Gordon Suspended 80 Games

Embed from Getty Images Of all the players to be suspended for PEDs, Miami Marlins 2B Dee Gordon was probably at the very bottom of everyone's list, yet here we are.  This just 21 games into the 2016 MLB season, after winning the National League Batting Title in 2015.Gordon was struggling at the plate this year, batting .266 with just five XBH, three of which came on opening...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Rays’ Steve Pearce, Brandon Guyer worth adding in deep leagues

As we near the endpoint of Week 4 of the Major League Baseball season, fantasy league waiver wires are becoming less and less plentiful. Sure, if you’re in a 10-team league or a shallower 12-teamer, there are gems to be had — every league has an owner who panics and drops a good player after a cold start — but I’ll let the watered down publications handle that stuff; these...

Fantasy Baseball Final: April 28, 2016

Most of the sports world is focusing on the first round of the NFL draft tonight. No one can doubt that football is king in America. If anyone doubts that, they should take a look at the television ratings tomorrow morning. The NFL will undoubtedly trounce real live baseball games and will more than likely eclipse the NBA playoffs as well. All that being said, there is still a lot...

Bear or Bull: Jose Abreu

El Grande Dolor. The Cuban Barry Bonds. Oso or Yogi. All of these are phrases and nicknames that have been used to describe Chicago White Sox slugger Jose Abreu in recent years. I'm not really sure where those last couple of ones came from, but they're listed under his profile at baseball-reference, so we'll roll with it. Side note: can those profiles be edited by the public á la...

A’s All Up In Rookie’s Mane

"'I need a bouncy C.  Not a bouncy castle!'  Billy Beane screams into his headset, when an intern interrupts him and his daughter, practicing her guitar, while they are both on a treadmill.  The intern tells Beane that Jesse Hahn has a blister.  The intern turns and it's Jonah Hill.  Fat Jonah, not "He doesn't look right skinny" Jonah.   Beane then looks at the camera to establish...

Useless Posts, Unlikely Heroes And Dancing Pirates

Two weeks ago I said that 2016 was not the year to own Byron Buxton and that in non-dynasty formats he was droppable. Some of you applauded my position, while others second guessed their decision to even read my post. One reader went as far as sending me an email letting me know that I was an idiot and that he wished I was in his league because his league could use more bad players...

The Starter The Berrios, The Sweeter The Juice

"Hi, I work in the front office for the Twins and I'm ordering lunch.  I was wondering what you have that's old that you can give us a discount on.  Can you eat old pork?  Hmm, let's try it with extra sauce.  John Ryan Murphy briefly converted to Judaism, or so he wrote in 6-point font inside his lined notebook where he talked about murder, but he's back to the gentile side...

Minnesota Twins Promote Jose Berrios

BeGreen90 Flickr The injury bug is starting to take a toll on starting pitchers (the Indians just lost Carlos Carrasco for 4-6 weeks) and now the Minnesota Twins are getting set to put Ervin Santana on the DL with a back issue. Taking his place in the rotation is stud pitcher and future ace Jose Berrios. In three starts in the minor leagues this year, Berrios has a 1.06 ERA...
