I'm going to use some jokes I read on Razzball to try and pick up women. If it works, I will post in here.

"Thanks Razzball! Because of you, I finished breakfast in someone else's kitchen!"
Ha!
I stumbled on Razzball maybe the beginning-middle of the year. With the assistance of Razzball (and Felix and Miggy) I finished (1) 1st of 12 going away (roto), (2) 3rd of 20 in regular season but playoff winner in H2H, (3) tied of 2nd of 12 in roto (after being last place mid June). Next year one of my teams will be managed totally according to Razzball recommendations starting with the preseason rankings. I know when I am not smart and when to rely on people who are smarter than me.
Congrats on the win!

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

I stumbled across Razzball around early January when I started reading up for another fun-filled year of fantasy baseball. I ended up with my second best finish ever in Yahoo! baseball, finishing at number 342 in the world with 112.5 out of 120 points.
I didn't really have to make a ton of shrewd moves during the year, having nabbed Cano for $18, CarGo or $2, ad Josh Hamilton for $10, during the draft, but I managed to work a few major trades with Grey's help, and wound up with Wainwright and Lincecum anchoring my staff to go along with an infield of Buck, Votto, Cano, Zimmerman, and Alexei Ramirez and an OF of CarGo, Josh Hamilton, Matt Kemp, and Brett Gardner (SAGNOF!).

Needless to say, I finished in the top 3 in everything but WHIP, which I lost some ground in while streaming the last two months of the season... It was a fair trade though, because I made up several points in Wins and K's.

Thanks, Grey! If I can figure out how to give you a daiquiri, I will!

Thank you Grey and Razzball. I finished 1st in my league...3rd title in 4 years. I started following Razzball in 2008 and it has been a tremendous help. It's definitely one of the best sites around. Everyone knows about the "mainstream" sites, but I truly believe this site gives me an advantage over my leaguemates. Grey I know you would love the web traffic from 9 other guys in my league, but I'm sorry that can't happen! :P

I love this site and analysis. Very intelligent (and funny) and spot on forecasts.

THANK YOU!

I finished first in both of my leagues, including putting up over 90 points in a 10 team roto league for the majority of the year. Your rankings were solid and the draft strategy articles were a life saver. The daily write-ups were hilarious. Grey, you write the way Matthew Berry wishes he could. Thanks so much, see you in 2011.
