Hey kids -- I've been sitting on this for a while, but now that we're starting to see our community flesh out a bit, I really should show it to you. It's called "Pick 6," and it kicks ass.
Here's the pitch:
Pick 6 is a daily pick'em game that pits you against other members of MLB Daily Dish and the entire SB Nation network. Have you always wanted to prove your superior baseball knowledge on MLB Daily Dish? 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!
I've been playing for a while now, and I've noticed a couple different strategies that work, like spreading the money around evenly, investing most of it in a couple players, and/or playing home/road splits against good/bad teams.
I'll bump this reminder once in a while to make sure and get your picks in. When we start getting a big response, maybe we'll have a contest?
