Pick 6 Fantasy Baseball, August 24

for some reason I still find Kyle Farnsworth amusing

Games start in the afternoon again today, so if you're planning to play Pick 6 fantasy baseball, the deadline to get picks in is 2:20 Eastern. Personally I don't like these days, because you have to pick your team long before lineups are announced, and if you want to pick (for example) someone playing in the Braves-Giants game tonight, it could be eight to ten hours before you know whether he's playing.

Not that there's anything that can be done about it.

Yesterday's scores looked like the Spanish soccer league's standings - two players far in front, and everyone else bunched together behind.

Rank Player Score
1 dbmets 83.3
2 CajoleJuice 80.2
3 BobbyV_Incognito 59.5
4 My_Albanian 53.1
5 Thomas Wachtel 53.1

Congratulations to dbmets (Real Madrid) and CajoleJuice (Barcelona) on yesterday's performances. The weekly race, on the other hand, looks like the Scottish Premier League standings.

Rank Player Score
1 BobbyV_Incognito 221.5
2 goth brooks 180.6
3 OroscoSchiraldi 169.7
4 hypeprospect 165.2
5 CajoleJuice 161.4

BobbyV_Incognito is Celtic at the moment. Well done. I'll stop with soccer analogies now.

Perhaps you noticed that I made the top five yesterday - a fluke, I assure you, but at least it makes my week a bit more respectable. Here's how it happened:

Position Player Score
SP Tommy Hanson 1.2
C Joe Mauer 15.5
CI Evan Longoria 7.2
MI Stephen Drew 14.1
OF Matt Holliday 9.1
RP Mike Adams 6.0

As happens sometimes with me, guys I took on a whim (Mauer, Drew) ended up having huge days. Maybe I should stop thinking and pick everything via whim.

Position Player Price
SP Ryan Vogelsong $21.50
C Jarrod Saltalamacchia $14.00
CI Ryan Zimmerman $27.50
MI Elvis Andrus $18.25
OF Curtis Granderson $35.50
RP Kyle Farnsworth $0.50

Yeah, we'll see how that works out.
