DraftKings: Happy 4th of July!

Happy Birthday Old Glory! On this date 239 years ago, our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. The 4th of July is now synonymous with baseball in our country. It's truly one of the best days in Major League Baseball. Thanks to technology, we can now celebrate today with DraftKings. In 1776 that wasn't a luxury, but could you imagine Thomas Jefferson going up to...

Bour on the 4th of July

Justin Bour celebrated the birth of our nation Friday night by going 2-for-3 with his 10th home run, making that four straight games he's homered. Bour is hotter than a roman candle! He's hotter than a screaming mimi, on top of a snicker blaster with a sparkling spleen splitter igniting a whistling kitty chaser! Thems fireworks, y'all!  I will try to keep it short and sweet today...

This Week in Razz…, Week 13

Welcome again to what is tacitly known as your one-stop-shop for all things Razzball. You bring the stop, I bring the shop. That makes little sense. Well, we’re also tacitly known for that as well! This week, I’m here to proclaim that the past six (or seven, whichever way you do the math) days have been the best yet here at the house of Razz. Why is that? I have no idea. But...

Buye Como Va

Don't yell at me! I own Carlos Santana and I know how awful he's been! It makes sense that his name is Carlos Santana, because Carlos Santana looks like Edward James Olmos and the acne scars Olmos has are how deep Carlos Santana's scarred my fantasy soul. Sometimes I wake at night in a cold sweat, frightened that Carlos Santana has found his way on all of my fantasy teams, only...

Points Leagues: Gimme Some More

When did Busta Rhymes get so fat? Dayam!!! Dude looks like he ate the Busta Rhymes I remember that put out some great music back in the late 90's and early 2000's. I'm not much of a rap fan, but I was always a Busta fan. When he sang "Gimme Some More" who knew he was talking to the guy that was putting food on his plate. Did you hear what the talking M&M said to Busta in that...

OPS Leagues: Cogh in the Machine

So, an old boss of mine used to talk about how she was friends with Chris Coghlan. This was back when Coghlan was kind of hip and new. Back when Coghlan won Rookie of the Year (the kind of ROY where we all groan, knowing that it’s probably another Angel Berroa or Bobby Crosby type selection, soon to fizzle out). Anyhow, my boss went to school with him and bragged about it. So of...

DraftKings: LA Ace With An Oakland Goody

When is a remake not a remake? No, this isn't a riddle. I'm seriously curious how 'Anaconda' was considered a new 'song'. Sure, Nicki Minaj provided some new...um...lyrics? Is cackling after saying 'uluhdisfadazz' considered lyrics? Neither here nor there for my original question, I guess so really, taking the exact same beat from a previous rap song while even sampling lyrics...

Spring(er) Break

George Springer will miss six weeks with a broken wrist. I find in these times of sadness it's best to turn to the ones you love, your family. But it's also important to not forget why you were sad either, so you don't lose perspective. So print out pictures of Springer's face and paste them to your wife, kids and dog's faces. See, aren't you glad you have family. It's that...

Razzball Roto and DFS MLB Projections Update, July 2015

There has been a lot of work behind the scenes to our daily projection methodology since my last update in May. The impact has been very positive - e.g., June represented our most accurate month ever for projecting DFS hitter points. If you haven't signed up already, I implurge (implore + urge) you to sign up for a month of DFSBot as for $9.99, you will get our DFS projections...

Bear or Bull: The Bay of Puig

Yasiel Puig might be the most polarizing player in major league baseball right now. Since making his MLB debut in June 2013, the 24-year-old Cuban defector's off-the-field antics, such as repeatedly showing up late for games and displaying a questionable work ethic in the weight room, have angered fans and teammates alike. If you don't believe me, just check out what some of his...

Closer Report, Week 13: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Bullpen

I am equating this one solely on one thing for the Cubbies... and that term is?  Pseudo-intellectual.  Joe Maddon does everything different and it's gotta be the glasses.  He makes everyone want, need or have to be involved in his bullpen.  Basically, he is the united colors of Benetton of managers.  His hydra approach at the bullpen is not only bothersome or troubling for...

DraftKings: When Is Elite Too Elite?

Go chalk, they'll tell you. Play and pay up for the studs each time they pitch, they'll say. It's all about trusting the process. Most of the time, I agree with this. I've made it no secret that I prefer to pay up big for the top starter of the day if it's warranted. Today, in a 8-game slate (I'm counting the Phillies and Brewers), Max Scherzer is without a doubt the top-priced...

Twin Cities Meteorologists Confused By July Sano Day

Kennys Vargas was demoted to Double-A. Shouldn't it be Double-Kenny? It's official, the Twins hate Vargas. They gave him all of about ten days to prove himself this time around. Maybe they just get off on killing Kennys. Oh, well, that's all I wanted to say in the lede. Nothing else. Just gonna pick my cuticles until I get to that "Anyway, here's what else" jazz that I always...

Razznasty League Update: Ghul Finds a Lazarus Pit

With three full months of baseball left to be played, a third horse may be emerging in the race for the first Razznasty dynasty league crown. R'azbahl Al Ghul has made solid win-now pickups and finds himself gaining some ground on the two frontrunners - Hannibal Montana and J-FOH. This month saw a group of about five or six teams ping-ponging around behind the leaders, but it's been...

ADP Data for All!

Quick personal fact: I've been writing about fantasy baseball online for seven years. And seven years ago, I had the idea to start saving ADP data to better study drafting. Well, things that seem like good ideas at one point often get staler with time until they are forever abandoned. Such was the fate of my ADP data project... until now. What's changed is that I've found  a...

DraftKings: Shake off Yesterday and Repeat it Today

It's so frustrating to have just the right matchup, the research points you in the right direction and then, poof, you lose. It's even more infuriating to see that same group of players go off the next day when you are off of them. The emptiness of the DraftKings lineup when guys like Josh Donaldson do absolutely nothing haunts like all the haunted houses in fiction rolled into one...

The Only Way To Keep Mitch In The Park Is More Land

Dude's on fire. No. Need better! He is a high-speed torrent download of a yule log burning. Need better! He is Smokey the Bear at a Porno for Pyros concert, wearing earbuds and listening to Firestarter by Prodigy. Need better still! He's a pyrotechnician smacking a sparkler out of your hand and giving you instead the detonator for the Statue of Liberty's 4th of July celebration...

One Man’s Trash: Meet the Matz

Steven Matz (+35.6%) was the most added player in fantasy baseball this past week. The Mets decided to roll out the welcome matz last week and promote the impressive young prospect to the big league club, joining a starting rotation that already featured Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard. Yikes. That would be a scary group for any team to face in a playoff series....

Pineda’s Cutter is His Bread and Butter

Michael Pineda has been nothing short of dominant this year. Sure, his 4.08 ERA isn't too dazzling, but with a 2.73 FIP and 2.80 SIERA, it seems as though sequencing and BABIP have hurt him more than poor pitching. Take a glance at Pineda's .349 BABIP — a number 60 points above his career average .279 — and it isn't too difficult to see an overly inflated ERA, especially given...

RCL Update, Week 13: (th) Warrior

Every week I strive to come up with something catchy for the title and shamefully, I went with the Antonio Banderas flick The 13th Warrior. Screw that, I have no shame in this one, I like this movie for what it is. Mindless entertainment where a Mexican Spaniard plays an Arab, and if you have ever looked at a map, it ain't that far away. According to Wikipedia, the movie is based...

DraftKings: Play The Rush

Poker players tend to make good DFS players.  Some of the top DFS pros are former poker pros.  I think there are several reasons for this occurrence.  First, there’s the element of the grind that is familiar, then there’s of course a similar aspect with bankroll management and also there’s a familiarity with odds and statistics.  There’s a lot of carry over and I want...

Indians Using Every Piece Of Buffalo Bill Cody

Cody Anderson took a perfect game into the 7th inning yesterday and ended up with a line of 8 IP, 1 ER, 2 baserunners, 2 Ks, and his ERA is at 0.57 thru two starts. The Indians staff just keeps getting sexier. Now their rotation is Cody, Corey, Danny, Trevor and Carlos. Sounds like a boy band, K-Nudo. Only Cody doesn't strike out as many -- he's the sensitive one. Anderson has...

Matz Punz!!! …and the Top 100 Starting Pitchers, Week 13

Geez, what is it about Steven Matz?! The puns have been outpouring faster than illogical movies by Christopher Nolan.  Maybe it's because he pitches for the Metz?  I don't know! I've been... well, naive to not rank Matz to this point.  Even with my standing concerns coming into his debut, he likely should've been ranked the last few weeks.  I thought it would be at least July...

SAGNOF Special, Week 13: The Jurrjy Award Nominees

The ESPYS are coming soon, so I decided it might be time to nominate some relief pitchers for mid-season hardware and steal a little bit of ESPN's ESPYS thunder (that's just wrong on more than one level) in the process.  Anyway, I'll soon be handing an award to one of the relief pitchers with a chance to regress in a bad way and I'm calling these awards the Jurrjy's because Jair...

Podcast: “If I Could Toot My Own Horn, I Would Never Leave My House”

The Razzball Pod is back, this time with more misused French frases (and more misspellings!)...  On today's show we talk Giancarlo Stanton's injury, Stephen Matz's callup, and our most annoying players so far.  Grey gets so annoyed he makes this an R-rated Pod!  We then jump into how pitchers have changed the fantasy landscape this season, and a surprise pitcher JB loves.  Grey...
