Pick 6 Fantasy Baseball, September 26

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Mike Trout and an Angels reliever save the author's night, as the Pick 6 season starts to wind down.

One of my favorite things about the new SB Nation layout is the fact that I don't have to worry anymore about negotiating the page break built in for the jump anymore. Stories are almost always just going to be a single page now, so in posts like this one, where I don't really have anything to say that's not directly Pick 6-related, I can more or less get right to it. Though I suppose I've just written about a hundred words that aren't really related to the game, so maybe it won't make that much of a difference after all.

Here are your scores from yesterday's games:

Rank Player Score
1 meigs1414 47.1
2 anonymous 42.8
3 GusGloom 42.6
4 James Ubriaco 42.0
5 Joveoak 38.1

I don't know why, but when we have really close scores - in this case, three players within one point of each other - I really like it. It's somehow legitimately exciting to me. I think I might be slightly insane.

Here's the weekly rankings after two days:

Rank Player Score
1 James Ubriaco 86.0
2 anonymous 81.8
3 Thomas Wachtel 79.6
4 htmlfreak 65.8
5 sitra2 63.6

There's a bit of a gap between the top three, which I am inexplicably in, and the rest, but that will almost definitely sort itself out in the next couple of days.

Here's my team and their 32.3 points from yesterday:

Position Player Score
SP Kris Medlen 6.0
C Alex Avila 0.0
CI Kevin Youkilis 1.6
MI Rickie Weeks 1.6
OF Mike Trout 9.1
RP Ernesto Frieri 14.0

Frieri really saved my bacon there, and with Trout and Medlen having decent games (Trout more so, obviously) my six had a respectable score. I'll need to do better if I ever plan to win anything, though.

Position Player Price
SP C.J. Wilson $29.00
C Jarrod Saltalamacchia $10.75
CI David Wright $44.25
MI Ian Desmond $2.00
OF Jay Bruce $20.75
RP Tyler Clippard $9.00

That's a decent enough team, right? RIGHT?!
