View Full Version : Maxim Fallacy Baseball...or you really want Jimmy Haynes

04-19-2004, 08:21 PM


The basic strategy of Maxim Fallacy Baseball is as simple as the infield fly rule: Pick baseball players who produce the most negative statistics (i.e., the players most likely to piss off their managers, fans, and teammates with their nacho-tossing incompetence) and, thus, score the most Fallacy points based upon our revolutionary patented* scoring system. Since you're likely an expert at making poor selections in ordinary fantasy games, you should really thrive here.

*Scoring system not patented.


Maxim Fallacy Baseball is as free as a seat at Beat-up Couch Stadium. We could never charge hard-working American taxpayers for this kind of competitive dysfunction.


We "convinced" bemused chlorophyllionaire Felix Dennis to award you a generous $50,000,000 salary cap to assemble your team. To buy a player, simply click on his salary. To search for players, click on Buy Players in the left navigation bar. Use your $50,000,000 wisely and you might be crowned Supreme Ruler of Middle Boobistan! Remember, you must have a complete roster to earn points.
You must select the following positions for your team (13 total):
1 Catcher
1 First Baseman
1 Second Baseman
1 Shortstop
1 Third Baseman
3 Outfielders
5 Pitchers
