If you're like me, and I know I am, you probably have very little chance of winning the Pick 6 Twinkie Town Leaderboard this season. Many of you have seen Moneyball (I think it was made into a book too, for those of you without electricity), [SPOILER ALERT!] in it Brad Pitt is the GM of a team of low-priced misfits that go on to a 20 game winning streak only to be crushed by the mighty Twins in the playoffs. So I thought, "Hey! What kind of a Pick 6 team could I put together if I could only spend $3.00?" Thus The Billy Beane Memorial Pick 6 Challenge™ was born.
The rules are simple: You can only spend $3.00 on your Pick 6 team, so only players from the $0.50 bin are allowed. That's it! Then just sit back and have Seth from Superbad call you with the results! It's that easy!
Let's face it, there are rich teams, there are poor teams, then there's 50 feet of crap. and then there is my $3.00 team. Play along and create your own Island of Misfit Toys!
