DraftKings: It’s The End Of The Month So Everything Musgrove!

Well look who's here...Yep, I'm talking to you. It's Sunday and we're both building daily baseball lineups while everyone else is in a fever pitch about the NFL. You know what? I'm more than okay with that. We can start our own support group on Sundays. You know, just the handful of us left that still care about the best game on Earth. We can also talk about how distressed we are...

I Picked Up Conforto Before It Was Cool

Mets outfielder Michael Conforto was 2-for-3 last night, scoring two runs with his 12th home run, and three RBI. Could this be the start of something big? Who's Conforto, you ask? Lol, you pleb--Don’t you know anything? He's just an uber prospect for the New York Mets.  *Sips cold brew coffee, adjust horn rimmed glasses, strokes beard* Sigh. You’ve probably never heard...

DraftKings: Mind The Gap

Tonight should make for a fun decision on pitchers, and by fun I mean, un-fun. There’s the big two of Madison Bumgarner and Clayton Kershaw followed by a mass of mediocrity. The gap between these two and the rest of the field is pretty enormous. I’m tempted to pay up for both of the studs and pay for certainty they bring to the table. Paying up for pitching is nice for cash...

Healy? Um, Worth A Buy But May Combust

Ryon Healy couldn't have come at a better time for the A's.  Their corner infidels were about as weaksauce as they come.  Mark Canha?  More like Can't-hit.  Andrew Lambo?  More like 'that Lambo is bahhhd.'  Yonder Alonso?  More like 'over Yonder' as in everyone's over him in value.  Though, looking at Healy's minor league numbers, he doesn't look much better.  However, Josh...

Prospect Podcast Episode 8: Top Breakout Prospects for 2017 Dynasty Leagues

The minor league season is over, so allow your favorite Prospectors to light the hot stove. It's like an outside fire pit on an autumn night type of stove. You know, hoodies and shorts. We'll save the pellet stove for the December doldrums, whatever those are. Enough about heating units!

DraftKings: Secret Ad-Meyer-er

Shhh, can you keep a secret? Please don't let him know. I'll be passing the 'Do you love me? Check yes or no' note to Carlos Perez prior to first pitch so please don't blow my cover, internet, on which I am writing about Alex Meyer for everyone to see. Ok, maybe 'love' is a strong word for a pitcher with only 18.2 career innings and a 7.23 ERA. At 26, the shine is probably off...

Another Ace In Queens Has A Jacked-Up Arm

Steven Matz is likely done for the year after hurting his shoulder again.  I'm not even joking.  I kinda wish I were.  NY Post writer, Joel Sherman's headline, "How Terry Collins broke Matz news to Mets in stirring meeting."  Unless everyone had coffee, creamers and were stirring, Joel, buddy, you're overselling.  Quick aside, sportswriters assume their audience is a bunch of...

Fantasy Baseball Final: September 22, 2016

There is a little more than a week left in the regular season and there is still a lot at stake in both leagues. The wild card hunt is particularly tight in the American League where five teams are fighting for two slots. One thing that is not in doubt is who will represent each division in the divisional round of the playoffs. The Red Sox have won eight games in a row and are now...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: NL MVP Race

The National League Most Valuable Player race is more intriguing than the American League race in many ways. For one, the overall quality of the players in the league is not as good as the American League, so the players are more bunched together. Furthermore, the candidates are more traditional in nature than in the American League. The Cubs (the best team in baseball) have two...

DraftKings: Believe in the Hair

The Cleveland Indians' rotation has taken some major hits in the last week or two, with Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar going out for the season with injuries. Mike Clevinger, he of the most beautiful hair I've ever seen this side of Sampson, starts against the Royals today. They need to find a way to expand their rotation options for the postseason, and I suspect that Clevinger...

Margot Renfroe In The Wolf Of Gaslight District

I don't understand this.  The Padres' Triple-A affiliate made a run for the Triple-A championship against the Yankees' affiliate, so the Padres were holding down their top prospects to play in the championship.  On the surface, it seems straightforward enough.  Making run for championship, want best players there.  Okay, I get that part.  The part where I get lost, WHY DO YOU...

DraftKings: The Best, Sir, Is Lester

Tuesday doesn't mark the 2016 Presidential Election, but there is no doubt a clear choice at starting pitcher tonight. The Cubs, who recently clinched the NL Central Division, are sailing into the playoffs and their horse - Jon Lester - continues to lead the way. Lester has been worth every single penny that the Cubs have paid him to date. He is coming off an eight inning, eight...

Podcast: “Let Me See If I Can Eat 18 Pounds Of Meatballs!”

Turn off your football and stop worrying about the weather getting colder, it's still baseball time! We're back with another edition of the Razzball Pod to prepare for the last week-and-a-half of action including Giancarlo Stanton returning to the starting line-up, the hottest hitters in baseball the past two weeks, and where Hanley Ramirez will rank in 2017. Somehow Grey likes...

For He’s A Jolly Porcello

I'm OCD about my iTunes.  I listen to a new album a few times, pick out some songs that I like, five star them, and then play them endlessly until I'm sick of them.  My top 20 for most played is embarrassing.   I like Lil Wayne more than anyone should ever admit.  Sometimes I have a song on repeat, and I'll get a phone call (rare; only old people use the phone for calling people...

Collapsing Super Nova

So for a lot of these puppies I pump out here for Razzball (That makes sense in oldspeak terms right?! You're not picturing me birthing a litter under Grey's desk at the Razzball office, right?! RIGHT?!), I write the intro before a pitcher's start to unsully my biases so you can read how the pitcher looked in real-time. Yeahhhh, football is on during Sundays now... It's tough...

DraftKings: Thor Is Officially The Last Met Standing

I know Grey already touched on the huge Starting Pitching casualties from this weekend, but man I got a swift kick in the nuts losing both Jacob deGrom and Carlos Carrasco for the year, so please forgive me as my wounds are still fresh. I had a ton of stock in Mets pitching this year, I was drafting Thor, deGrom and Steven Matz where ever I could thinking that they would have monster...

Baseman Turner Overdrive Is Takin’ Care Of Business

I blame Jonathan Villar, Dusty, Francisco Lindor and Rougned Odor, in no particular order.  Those players and Dusty are the reason why I owned Trea Turner and dropped him.  I mean, no one would be crazy enough to put Turner in at Utility when he was first called up.  Wasn't gonna play him at outfield.  He's a middle infielder, and I had no room.  *puts thumbtacks on desk, takes...

Get Hits or Buy Ryon

Oakland rookie third baseman Ryon Healy continued to rake Friday night as he collected two hits and scored a run to extend his hitting streak to seven, with six multi-hit games in that span. Sometimes I get fantasy advice from good friend of mine and rapper 50 Cent, who is a much better fantasy baseballer than he is a real baseballer. In between freestyle seshs, Fitty says to...

Fantasy Baseball Final: September 16, 2016

The playoff hunt is in full swing in both real baseball and fantasy baseball. Most standard 12 team head to head leagues are in the first week of the playoff chase. Some leagues have a consolation bracket while others have half of the league checking their fantasy football league rosters a bit earlier than hoped. The same is true of the real baseball standings. Twelve teams have...

The KK Ray Took Buy Baby Away

Kevin Kiermaier might be my first sleeper of the 2017 fantasy baseball season.  The funny thing (completely and irrefutably not funny) is with fantasy football starting, fantasy basketball getting underway (don't worry, I won't clickbait you to death) and fantasy teams just falling out of contention, players that do well in September are often forgotten by next March even though...
