FantasyRazzballFantasy Razzball is the game where the goal is to manage the worst fantasy baseball team possible. You hope to find terrible players who don’t get sent to the minors. As in the RCL, a team’s points are multiplied by the League Competitive Index. The LCI is based on the total points of the top 8 teams per league. The overall standings can be found below. Points are credited as follows:

Hitters (AB = +2, H = -3, R = -4, HR = -6, RBI = -4, K = +2)

Pitchers (IP = -1, HR = +4, L = +8, K = -1, ER = +1.5, H+BB = +1).

You can find links to the six Fantasy Razzball leagues (along with the 64 RCLs) here.

The readers of Hire Jim Essian formed a Fantasy Razzball League this year, and they have produced the early overall leader. Facepalm United leads with 2193 points, over 200 ahead of Reading Rainbows (League of Bad). FU has hit just .222 with 35 home runs, while their pitchers have recorded 33 losses with an ERA of 5.28 and 1.48 WHIP. They have six hitters with over 100 points, led by Rickie Weeks at 196. Ike Davis was added on April 19th, and has contributed 138 points in just 66 ABs. Jeff Keppinger (125), Cliff Pennington (121), Adeiny Hechavarria (109), and Alex Gonzalez (102) round out their century-mark hitters. On the pitching side, three hurlers with 5 losses lead the way. Wily Peralta (125), Dan Haren (112), and Joe Blanton (107) pace the staff. Ricky Romero provided 54 points/IP with 18 in just a third of an inning. Jonathan Sanchez was also impressive, scoring over 6 points per inning in 13 and two thirds.

    Hup! My team was mentioned on Razzball! Should I die today, I die a happy man. Facepalm United forever!

      VinWins says:

      @Trigger Cut: It was a long hard struggle, but you have reached your goal! Congratulations!

  2. boston strong says:

    should i take Adam Jones or Joey Bats in a points league that doesnt count negative points for strikeouts i would be giving up Segura, i have Zobrist in my OF and Reyes on the DL in a pickle cause i like both players

    • boston strong says:

      @boston strong: the kid with adam jones also has CarGo (COL) should i go after him instead

      • VinWins

        VinWins says:

        @boston strong: I’m not an expert, so you should ask on Grey’s post, but I’d say Jones.

    Almost top 50!

      VinWins says:

      @jaywrong: You can do it, man!

  4. Tecmoballz says:

    #20 Didn’t draft my team but have been making moves like its my biz!

    • VinWins

      VinWins says:

      @Tecmoballz: Impressive. I did draft my team, and I’m 1 spot behind you.

      • Tecmoballz says:

        @VinWins: bj Upton auto pick, traded for Danny Espinosa, and Vance Worsley and vogelsong were anchoring my staff,.those will be hard to replace

  5. Wallpaper Paterson says:

    At least I created the best fantasy team name in history (Newark Diseased Eels). I have that going for me which is nice.

      • Wallpaper Paterson says:

        @VinWins: My fantasy baseball goal is always to be in the top three by August. I just want to be in position to compete for league titles in August and September. If I don’t bring a good team into August, then I consider that to be failure. The Newark Diseased Eels are on pace to be good.

        • VinWins

          VinWins says:

          @Wallpaper Paterson: Sounds good. I don’t have quite that high of standards. I just hope to be in the top half of the field.

          Good luck!

  6. DrEasy says:

    That autodrafted abandoned team is hurting our League Index big time… Grrr….

  7. VinWins

    VinWins says:

    The LCI is based on the total points of the top 8 teams per league.

    I said you’d be battling for the league title in the end. You’re already within 60 points. Congratulations.

    • DrEasy says:

      @VinWins: Great, there goes my excuse! ;)
