Good morning, baseball fans! It’s nearly February, which means it’s almost close to time to start considering thinking about baseball! Unless, of course, you’re a fantasy sports degen like myself, in which case, it is already literally baseball season!
And of course you are, or you wouldn’t be here! So let’s talk about the biggest fantasy baseball tournament that shares part of its name with this website, RazzSlam 4: The Grand Salami!
In the simplest terms possible, RazzSlam is a fantasy baseball tournament that pits “Pros vs Joes”… and while last year’s winner was pro Bob Cyphers of Dynasty Guru, it was just the year before that “Average” Joe Asher whupped the field and showed all the analysts what-for. So the Joes are due!
