Pick Six Updates

Last week I introduced ottoneu Pick Six, a daily points game, and I wanted to update everyone on the recent updates to the game.  For those of you who don’t know, Pick Six is a game that takes less than 5 minutes to enter and lets you compete against other FanGraphs users on your ability to choose players for the day, with achievements for winning or accomplishing other feats.  It’s free to play, and you should definitely check it out.

The next time you visit the Pick Six site, your first stop should be the “Add Friends” tab.  You can now follow other users on Pick Six, allowing you to compare yourself to a subset of the day’s participants.  I think this is a pretty fun feature, but the real reason I am writing today is to share a few Pick Six users that you should consider following.

With over 200 participants in the first 6 days, I’m pretty sure I missed more than a couple of people you should be following.  In the comments, feel free to share your Pick Six profiles with each other, so you can add each other to your leaderboards.  Additionally, make sure to follow ottoneu on Twitter or Facebook for updates and so you can give more of the great feedback I’ve received so far.  Have fun, and good luck!

    I am especially bad at this so if you want to feel better about yourself definitely follow me. I also think I should unlock some sort of achievement for peaking on Day 1 and getting a lower score in five straight days, that totally takes talent. Could be the Sam Fuld or Raul Ibanez achievement.

      I would think the Raul Ibanez achievement would require being totally mediocre-to-average for the couple months and then absolutely dominating in August, before failing to break 0 for September. But I think you are up for it.

  2. Niv forced — I say, forced — me to pick Ryan Vogelsong yesterday, confirming what I already suspected: Niv is a jerk.

    Love this. It’d be awesome if you had hidden achievements like using Frenchie and getting like 45 points for the day or something

    Any player that is worth less than $10 but gets 35+ points should certainly get me some sort of recognition….Justin Smoak tonight would be nice

    For a novice fantasy baseball player (my last great pitcher was Ken Hill in 1996), Pick Six is a doooope way to get back into it. Literally takes a minute to play… looking forward to seeing the development
