Pick 6 Fantasy Baseball, August 30


I sort of wish I'd played Matt Harvey in my Pick 6 team last night. He was a lot cheaper than the pitcher I ended up with, and he scored better (more on that later). And beyond that, he's a Met and I like him, and that's always a bit more fun. It looked like a lot of you did pick him, so good job there.

So...let's see how we all did.

Here are the scores from yesterday:

Rank Player Score
1 BurleighGrimes 60.8
2 anonymous 43.1
3 BobbyV_Incognito 42.8
4 Thomas Wachtel 41.7
5 Ceetar 40.4

Everyone from second to fifth was really close (aside: huzzah for me!), but good job by BurleighGrimes to get some separation from the pack. It wasn't quite enough, though, to get into the weekly top five.

Rank Player Score
1 IanB in MD 122.1
3 Ceetar 96.2
4 hypeprospect 90.5
5 gstatman 89.0

Our top two have reversed order, and Ceetar comes into the top five. The lead is fairly big, but not safe by any means, with over half the week's games still to go.

I was 4th yesterday, somehow. Let's see what that somehow was.

Position Player Score
SP CC Sabathia 7.3
C Jarrod Saltalamacchia 0.0
CI Adam Dunn 8.6
MI Ian Desmond 11.2
OF Justin Upton 5.6
RP John Axford 9.0

Slow and steady wins the race, you guys. Here's my team for today.

Position Player Score
SP Jon Niese $3.25
C Ryan Doumit $13.00
CI Albert Pujols $57.25
MI Ian Desmond $3.50
OF Matt Holliday $36.25
RP Jose Valverde $5.00

JON NIESE SWAG. I decided to go with the "spend big on two players, surround them with cheap stuff" strategy. Let's see how it plays out.
