The MoneyBall Buzz – Round 3

Welcome to the Buzz for another week!

Hopefully your week hasn’t been as stressful as Gary Ablett & Rodney Eade’s, who would be pulling their hair out if they had any. We’ve got two exciting MoneyBall games again this weekend, after the success we had last week.
If you’re new to MoneyBall, check out the intro we had prior to Round 1.


Just the one game for this contest. Saints against the Pies, in what should be a pretty close match. $5 dollar entry, ten spots and the top two finishers get a nice return.

Some the guys who caught my eye for this one were:
Nick Riewoldt – $9,000, ave 104
He just keeps on keeping on. It’s unbelievable, and his scores aren’t relenting.
David Armitage – $8,200, ave 100
With the next generation of St.Kilda mids coming through, Armo had to stand up, and so far he has.
Jarryd Blair – $6,500, ave 86
The little nugget has started season in fine form, spending lots of time in the middle.
Sam Fisher – $7,800, ave 86
The return of ‘Chips’ has been vital for the Saints, and an average of 86 MB points is very good.
Jesse White – $5,200, ave 74
White isn’t the biggest scorer, but he’s very cheap considering he’s a lock to play. POD.

Same rules apply as above, and the same league set-up, with a $5 buy-in. The games involved are Carlton v Essendon, Adelaide v Melbourne, Brisbane v Richmond, North Melbourne v Port Adelaide and Sydney v GWS, so there’s a few more tactics involved.

Some of the guys I’m considering are:
Tex Walker – $6,600, ave 128
At less than $7k, Tex is simply a must-have. Plays Melbourne this week.
Robbie Nahas – $6,500, ave 101
Nahas came straight into the Roos’ side and produced a 101 MB point return. I’m not saying he’ll keep it up but…
Sam Jacobs – $9,100, ave 113
Ruckmen are a tough one. But if you’re going to spend big, Jacobs will reward you. Great average.
Alex Rance – $6,600, ave 97
Rance has been fantastic down back for the Tigers and his average reflects that.

Okay, so once you’re ready to take me on, hit the banner & search SCHQ to join our league.


Good luck, and see if you can knock me off my perch!
