The MLB season is almost upon us!  And what better way to celebrate than by fulfilling your dream of playing with Rudy.  At our Halloween party last year, Rudy dressed up as Chucky and went around asking chicks, “My name’s Rudy, wanna playyyyy?”  Luckily, there are no more lawsuits pending.

Our friends at DraftKings are accommodating a RAZZBALL NATION ONLY CONTEST on April 2nd against our own Rudy Gamble, where for $5, yes as much as a crappy foot of sandwich, you can win a ticket into the $150,000 Walk off Contest on April 12, where the top winner will win $50,000.  That’s like – a million crappy sandwiches.  I know Rudy doesn’t have that bushy mustache or those daiquiri soaked lips, but he is a fantasy god amongst us mere mortals and will be near impossible to topple.

The contest is limited to only 50 players, so you gotta sign up fast!  And 20 will win something!  That’s a .400 average.  So if you play, you have the same shot Ted Williams had at getting a hit in 1941.  Imagine those stats on your fantasy team!  Spots 2-10 will double their money and win $10 and 11-20 will break even and win $5.

If you’re new to DraftKings, it’s a daily fantasy league where you pick your line-up every night and like a points league, you accumulate your points at a shot for big money.  Here’s a breakdown of how the scoring is calculated.

The great thing about DraftKings is you can win your big payouts right away instead of grinding through the whole marathon of the season.  You also get to pick your matchups nightly from every player in the league.  See a great start from Jered Weaver against the Astros, but couldn’t draft the Weave in any league?  Pick him in a DraftKings line-up!  Waited on 3B and picked David Freese and you’re already frustrated with injuries?  Pick a DraftKings lineup anew every night.

We’ll be keeping in touch with these awesome contests through the season at DraftKings, so if you have any questions about your daily line-ups, shoot em in the comments and hopefully I’ll help you win some dollar bills!  I won some people some nice money over on the basketball side, but between you and me (whisper voice), I think I’m better at fantasy baseball.  You can always buy me a crown & coke over there if I win you some big money.

Good luck this year and let’s get the season started!

                @Tehol Beddict: MVP can be construed as most VALUABLE (value is in the word). There won’t be 100 better players.

      @Rob: Crushed it! Love this team. If you don’t finish top 2 in all hitting cats I’d be shocked. Like your pitchers, but you’ll need a little wire help, but with that offense, still a good staff.
