When I first brought the idea of a large industry best ball competition with fan participation into Grey’s office he said, “Damnit Cougs, stop letting Donkey into the house! He’s getting mud all over my panda rug again!” Then I brought the idea to Rudy who spent the next week developing algorithms and running millions of simulations to determine if it was a worthwhile endeavor. On the seventh day the RazzSlam Bot saw it’s shadow. And so the RazzSlam came into being. What exactly is the RazzSlam? I’m glad you ask…
What: A HUGE fantasy baseball best ball tournament which will forever transform the landscape of the fantasy baseball world.
Who: Scores of your favorite fantasy baseball analysts, with a sprinkling of fans. Participating analysts include Razzball’s own Grey Albright & Rudy Gamble, Scott White, Heath Cummings & Chris Towers of CBS, Andy Behrens & Dalton Del Don of Yahoo, Eno Sarris & Derek Van Riper of The Athletic, Paul Sporer of Fangraphs, Jeff Erickson of Rotowire, Mike Gianella of Baseball Prospectus, plus many, many more! The field will consist of 75% analysts, 25% fans and .01% Donkey.
Where: The NFBC has very graciously offered to play host to this historic event on their state of the art platform using their Cutline Championship format.
Why: To crown the best fantasy baseballer in the universe, win life changing prizes and impress the babes—or dudes if that’s your thing.
When: Slow drafts featuring a 4-hour per pick clock are tentatively scheduled to begin Monday, March 1st.
How: If you’re interested in participating, fill out the form below and submit. A fan lottery will take place near the end of February, Hunger Games style. To increase your odds, sign up for the infamous Razzball Tools which Grey and Rudy have used to win three Tout Wars titles since 2017! By mandate of Fantasy Master Lothario, 80% of the fan spots will be awarded to Razzball Tools Subscribers and only 20% will be drawn from the Cheap Ass Fans pool.
Format: This contest will mirror the NFBC Best Ball Cutline Championship Rules, except we’ll feature 12 team leagues rather than 10 team leagues.
