Once again, a new week dawns, and we begin another weekly Pick 6 campaign. Get excited, people. I know I am.
And to stoke that excitement even further, I propose that we start the week off with a theme competition. There's no prize and it's definitely not mandatory - it's just something that I think makes the game a little more fun, and in the vein of 50-Cent Fridays, makes it a little more challenging. So if you're up to it, join in.
First let's look at the scores from yesterday and the final score from the week's competition.
|3||Davey Johnson's Locker||64.8|
Good job by Gringo Steiner to take the daily game by a pretty substantial margin. And second and third places were separated by a mere tenth of a point, which is fun. Now let's see what that does to the overall scoring for the week:
|3||Davey Johnson's Locker||249.6|
The weekly race ended up closer than the daily one, but still a safe victory for hypeprospect.
So on to tonight's game. I mentioned earlier that I'd be putting out a special game tonight. The chosen theme is "Teams": that is, all six of your players should be teammates in real life. You can choose any team you want, you just need to make sure you can get a team under-budget with six members. I'm going with the Nationals:
I found the most expensive pitcher on a team I thought I could build around, and then went from there. I'm pretty happy with the way the 6 turned out, even if I did end up with $35.50 left over. So, can you top that?
