The RAB Ottoneu Pick Six Group

Game 72: Let's play two!
Garcia, Posada power Yankees to win in first game of doubleheader

Wednesday: The group filled up rather quickly yesterday, but they upped it from 100 to 500 spots for us. So if you missed out yesterday, there’s plenty of openings now.

Tuesday: Just a heads up for all you fantasy baseball players out there, I created an official RAB Ottoneu Pick Six group for everyone to join. What the hell is Pick Six? It’s a daily fantasy game held a FanGraphs where you get $120 a day (fake money, in case it wasn’t obvious) to buy one catcher, one corner infielder, one middle infielder, one outfielder, one starting pitcher, and one reliever, and then whoever has the most points at the end of the day wins. It’s simple. The scoring is explained here, achievements here. There are no prizes, just daily bragging rights. It takes two minutes a day and is highly addictive, you are forewarned.

All you have to do to join the group is log in with your FanGraphs user id (create one here), click join groups, then look for River Ave. Blues. The password is simply: riveraveblues. There are 100 total spots in the group (that’s the max) and one is me, so 99 are up for grabs. It’s a lot of fun and the game itself is great, so I recommend playing even if you don’t join the RAB group. (thanks to former weekend site ruiner writer Steve H. for the idea)

    What is “Ottoneau”? What does that mean?

    sounds like a better (if not slight ripoff) version of fanduel.

    what happens in a rainout?

    • 23553

      You don’t get any points :( didn’t know until I had Granderson today.

      Oooh, you gotta work Darnell McDonald in there somehow.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

        Too “athletic”.

        • http://twitter.com/aviatkin Avi Atkin

          Daniel Nava is just the right amount of moxie and skin coloe.

          • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

            He’s the upper limit. “Nava” could be anything. Is he Puerto Rican? Ukranian? Winnebago? There’s no way to be 100% sure.

            Play it safe and stick to Kalish. Or, play Jed Lowrie out of position at CF, that works too.

    Oooh, I’ve heard about this and been pretty curious about how it works so now you all get to kick my butt.

    Haha, gave into peer pressure. I’ve been avoiding this knowing how addictive it can be.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

      This sounds just like me, except substitute “Ottoneu Pick Six Group” with “black tar heroin”.

      • http://twitter.com/aviatkin Avi Atkin

        Oh, been there done that. Fantasy baseball and heroin go hand in hand.

  • bonestock94

    Been playing this daily, love it. Just joined

  • Pedro (from Brazil)

    One more place to lose to you guys..hehehhehe

  • Rick

    Anybody know if we get credit for both ends of the doubleheader with one player?

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

      … too easy.

      • Rick

        Thanks for passing on that one.

    • http://twitter.com/SteveH_MandAura Steve H

      Pretty sure you have to pick which game you are choosing them for so you wouldn’t get credit for both.

      • Rick

        …and thanks for an answer.

    First saw this when Mike tweeted his team. I’ve really been liking it.

  • bpdelia

    I dont see the RAB group. ITs just not there.

    • Jared

      I too am having a hard time finding the group. Is it all filled up?

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

        Yes, it filled up. I’ll see if I can create a second one later today.

        • Delaware – Ralph

          I would love a second RAB group if you get around to it.

  • Uke

    I picked Martin & Tex but for the first game… thats an epic fail…
