I hope everybody had an exquisite tenth week of enjoyable within the Razzball Commenter Leagues. It was at this level final season that we had been all executed with the RCLs and fantasy baseball. I nonetheless can’t imagine we performed a 60 sport season, stopping at this level on this season would simply really feel foolish. A few of my groups are simply lastly getting their shizz collectively. Is it from this level ahead we begin seeing much more accidents than we have already got? Do much more pitcher’s arms begin falling off? As somebody who just lately traded for Jacob deGrom in a single RCL and drafted Max Scherzer in one other, I used to be holding my breathe this weekend. Don’t fear although, the Mets say deGrom is ok for his subsequent begin after enjoying some catch. If that doesn’t make you relaxation straightforward, I don’t know what’s going to. This, mixed with the MLB assault on Spider Tack and we may very well be in for some main offense this summer season! I do know my RCL groups which are presently batting underneath .250 will approve. Let’s check out how offense and pitching alike faired this week and the remainder of the week that was, week 10:
Every week we’ll peek in at our resident ‘perts to see who’s laying declare to finest “professional” RCLer within the land. We’ll take notes, verify the standings and usually stalk them. The heading can also be hyperlink, so be happy to observe alongside as we go.
Regardless of Son shedding 1.5 factors and Coolwhip gaining 4.5, Son nonetheless managed to maintain maintain of the league lead (and the RCL lead, however extra on that later). The lead is simply 2.5 factors now, as Coolwhip actually applies the stress. Coolwhip has executed this whereas solely utilizing about 60 strikes, whereas, Son’s subsequent transfer will put him midway to the five hundred transfer restrict. It positive will probably be fascinating to see how this race shakes out down the stretch.
Coolwhip’s 4.5 level achieve was the most important achieve of the week. Coolwhip led the league in runs, batting common, and co-led in steals. I used to be the opposite steals co-leader however don’t have anything however adverse 4 factors to indicate for it, the most important lack of the week. Itch gained probably the most positions within the league this week, transferring up two locations to fifth because of a four-point achieve.
Every week we’ll additionally check out the highest ten total standings in our different Razzball sponsored league, the RazzSlam. That is our NFBC Greatest Ball league with managers from all throughout the business, from content material suppliers to followers and readers identical to you.
It seems we’re entering into the canine days of the RazzSlam as the highest 5 remained unchanged this week and we haven’t seen a change within the total chief since week 5. I assumed we’d see a shake-up after the second FAAB ran, however no cube. I, for one, was out of cash for this spherical of FAAB, blowing all of it on the primary FAAB. I don’t advocate this.
Donkey Tooth swapped spots with Ryan Owen touchdown in seventh and sixth respectively. Zach Meyer strikes up one spot to eighth. We do see some turnover on the backside finish of the highest ten as new groups, Kevork Mahserejian and Curtis Jones take ninth and tenth this week.
The largest mover this week was Rob Sherwood who gained 744 factors and moved up 44 sports activities to fiftieth total.
For these too lazy to verify the MASTER STANDINGS, I current to you, the present high 10
As I discussed above, Son held onto his high spot for an additional week. Crew mpaltrow jumped again into second total and a brand new challenger is pushing into the highest three. Crew cubbiebluez gained seven league factors this week, bringing them to 108 complete. If RCL #8 can increase their league aggressive index a tad, cubbiebluez may very well be pushing for that high spot right here quickly.
Coolwhip strikes up one spot this week to fourth total and Laura takes a tumble, falling from second to fifth this week.
I discovered within the feedback final week that this lengthy workforce title: FlowersbangsAl waysRoyalmom… belongs to Grimey. Congratulate Grimey on sixth total the subsequent time you see him within the feedback.
Orlando Calrissians strikes up one spot to seventh this week as Disgustipated falls 4 spots to eighth.
I maintain hanging across the backside of the highest ten, touchdown in ninth this week and Son’s Author’s league workforce comes storming again into the highest ten after a one-week hiatus.
All of the trades which have gone down up to now week. Public ridicule shouldn’t be solely allowed, however inspired.
We had a few doozies this week. Possibly groups are getting determined. One commerce precipitated a minor ruckus in a single league, are you able to guess which one?
The supervisor of the Pachoka groups should simply get pleasure from transferring items, it looks like day-after-day there’s a new commerce involving one in all their squads. Their commerce of Bauer for 3 closers is the one which received some warmth with the “c” phrase being tossed round. I’ve said earlier than, and can once more, it’s very troublesome to show collusion. Do we actually suppose these two groups in twelfth and eighth are plotting collectively to make a commerce like this with a view to take down an RCL? Are they buddies exterior of the league? I doubt it. It seems like somebody who’s in final place, making a determined (albeit, ill-advised) transfer to achieve some factors in Saves and get away from Bauer, who has regarded fairly meh for the reason that sticky-stuff discuss has gotten louder. Within the grand scheme of issues, is that this commerce actually any worse than buying and selling Taylor Rogers for Giancarlo Stanton? I’m not within the enterprise of over-turning trades. I’m very professional letting managers handle their very own groups. If a number of trades go down in an apparent dump, we have now a unique story. In that case, I might hope a league could be awake sufficient to solid the 4 votes wanted to veto a commerce.
The very best of the most effective from the week that was.

Crew the_chaz almost went Teddy Ballgame on us with a .373 common! Is it a coincidence that that is the week we set a brand new report for batting common? I believe it’s as a result of we additionally set a brand new WHIP report. Pitching offers and pitching takes.
