Pick 6 Fantasy Baseball, August 31

I don't get why Josh Willingham is only $0.50
I don't get why Josh Willingham is only $0.50

So this beautiful Friday is going to be one of my busiest - in addition to my Pick 6 responsibilities here and at my actual job, today is the transfer deadline for European soccer teams (think the MLB trading deadline multiplied by about fifty). As you might know I write for the SB Nation Arsenal blog as well, so I've been keeping track of movements there too - all in all, I have a ton of things to do, all at once.

So it's a really, really good thing that it's 50-Cent Friday, so I don't have to think too much about my team (in terms of economic balance, at least).

Here are yesterday's scores:

Rank Player Score
1 CajoleJuice 58.7
2 HELLYEAHGARYOAK 53.0
3 BobbyV_Incognito 50.9
4 Ceetar 48.6
5 OroscoSchiraldi 41.9

And here's the weekly standings, heading into weekend games:

Rank Player Score
1 HELLYEAHGARYOAK 161.8
2 Ceetar 144.8
3 IanB in MD 143.3
4 James Ubriaco 123.2
5 meigs1414 111.1

HELLYEAHGARYOAK has vaulted back into the lead after a strong second-place showing yesterday, but there's still a lot of game left - and the scores are not that far apart. I was mediocre yesterday, as is par for the course most days.

Position Player Score
SP Jon Niese 5.8
C Ryan Doumit 8.5
CI Albert Pujols 10.1
MI Ian Desmond 7.2
OF Matt Holliday 1.6
RP Jose Valverde 0.0

Holliday's bad day and Valverde not pitching really killed me. Maybe I'll do better on the cheap tonight.

Position Player Price
SP Mike Leake $0.50
C Josh Thole $0.50
CI Paul Goldschmidt $0.50
MI Chase Utley $0.50
OF Josh Willingham $0.50
RP Brandon League $0.50
