    Maxim Fallacy Baseball...or you really want Jimmy Haynes

    http://baseball.maximonline.com/sala...asp?gameid=102



    OBJECTIVE

    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.

    ENTRY

    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.

    ASSEMBLING YOUR TEAM

    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):
    Roster
    1 Catcher
    1 First Baseman
    1 Second Baseman
    1 Shortstop
    1 Third Baseman
    3 Outfielders

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I don't have any idea how or why, but the Yokels are crushing the Ogres 755 to -90. I think that means I'm winning.
