Earlier this week, SB Nation launched its free, fun, and highly addictive fantasy baseball "Pick Six" game. The basic premise:
Pick 6 is a daily pick'em game that pits you against other members of (insert blog name here) and the entire SB Nation network. Have you always wanted to prove your superior baseball knowledge on (insert blog name here)? Now's your chance.
Each day, users can choose six players to fill out their daily roster: a catcher, corner infielder, middle infielder, outfielder, starting pitcher, and relief pitcher.
The twist? Each user only has $120 of imaginary money to spend per day, and each player has a different cost. Player values are determined by their production and their popularity in Pick 6.
Successful users will strike a balance between expensive players and under-the-radar talent to take their lineup to the next level. Since this is a daily game there is no draft, no lengthy sign-up process - just you competing against fellow blog members for bragging rights.
It only takes a couple minutes to Pick your 6 - it's so easy to play! Go to the top left side of this blog and click on "Play Now" on the Pick 6 widget. Come back during and after games to see how you and your friends did.
For more information on how to play and how scores are calculated, please go to the Rules page.
Good luck and Play Ball! Play Pick 6 now.
The trick is to fill out the best possible six-player team -- with attention to matchups and such -- while remaining under budget. You collect specific point values for each event from your players.
