If you are like me, you love fantasy baseball. The challenge of projecting how players will do day-to-day is an exciting one, but it is also a time consuming one. So if you are like me, you also just do not have a lot of time to spend working on the day-to-day hassles of fantasy baseball right now. Between managing your roster's daily lineups, scouring the waiver wire for the best choices available to fit your needs, and looking out for trades to pull off so that you can make those incremental gains on your way to the championship, fantasy baseball can be a time sink. And that does not include all the preseason draft work that can also take up time.
Look, we all love fantasy baseball, but how about a chance for those of us who do not have a lot of time or those who just cannot get enough of fantasy baseball of some kind and want more? Is there anything for us to do?
SB Nation is way ahead of you on this one. For everyone who would like a little more fantasy baseball in their life, there is SB Nation's Pick 6!
is a daily pick'em game that pits you against other members of Fish Stripes and the entire SB Nation network. Have you always wanted to prove your superior baseball knowledge on Fish Stripes? Now's your chance.
Each day, users can choose six players to fill out their daily roster: a catcher, corner infielder, middle infielder, outfielder, starting pitcher, and relief pitcher.
The twist? Each user only has $120 of imaginary money to spend per day, and each player has a different cost. Player values are determined by their production and their popularity in Pick 6.
Successful users will strike a balance between expensive players and under-the-radar talent to take their lineup to the next level. Since this is a daily game there is no draft, no lengthy sign-up process - just you competing against fellow blog members for bragging rights. And as customary with Fish Stripes games, prizes can be had at the end of the season for the top dog in the Fish Stripes Pick 6 leaderboard!
It only takes a couple minutes to Pick your 6 - it's so easy to play! Go to the top left side of this blog and click on "Play Now" on the Pick 6 widget. Come back during and after games to see how you and your friends did.
