Fanamana is a whole new way to play fantasy baseball since it’s the only game where you pick batters as actual MLB games are in progress. Rather than shooting for points, the name of the game is scoring runs. If you pick Jose Reyes to lead off and he triples, you have a runner at third with three outs to get him home just like in real baseball. Fail to push him across, and you’ll have to start fresh in the next inning. Here are a few pointers to keep in mind when you are filling out your lineup card.

1. Game plan like a manager would. Know which hitters are hot and cold, and know which pitching matchups you want to attack.

2. Play Moneyball. Go with high on-base players and stay away from the Ryan Howard- and Adam Dunn-types unless you’re desperate for a long ball in the late innings. Big poppers are also worth a gamble with runners on and less than two out.

3. Make in-game adjustments. Just as any manager would, you have to have a feel for the game. If a batter you really liked seems to be struggling at the plate, you may want to keep him on the bench. On the flip side, if you see a player going off, make sure you have him in your lineup next time he’s at the dish.

4. Follow the situations. If you see a team’s offense mounting a rally, that’s usually a good time to pounce. On the other hand, if a pitcher throwing up goose eggs, you’ll want to stay away and focus on other matchups.

5. Use your batting slots wisely. You can only choose three batters at a time so don’t fill them all up at the same time if you know a batter you’re targeting will be getting to the plate soon.

6. Be patient. Yes, Fanamana is so fun that you may not be able to put your phone down. Resist the urge of picking batters just for the sake of picking them. Stay patient and don’t feel like you have to pick a batter every time you look at your options.

7. Notifications. Fanamana lets you customize your push notifications within the app, allowing you to set alerts for various events. Use these to your advantage by staying dialed in with your team.

So what are you waiting for? Put on your manager’s cap, download Fanamana in your app store, and grab a few bats to start beating your opponents senseless!

Daily fantasy games have taken the fantasy sports industry by storm over the past few years. Their rise in popularity has been spearheaded by the ever-popular salary cap format, where users draft players with values corresponding to their real-life performance to fit under a predetermined cap number. Daily fantasy drafters spend countless hours charting player performance, hoping to cash in on their forecasting, but once they set their lineups, it’s all up the fantasy gods. Until now…

Fanamana is the latest innovation in the daily fantasy sports (DFS) space, the only game that is played while actual sporting events are in progress. Here’s the full rundown on how Fanamana is a whole new ballgame:

1. Fanamana is built for mobile. Our games are designed to go with you, allowing for…

2. Real-time player selection. In DFS, you assume the role of general manager, assembling the best possible lineup and then hoping for the best. With Fanamana, you call all the shots from the dugout as the manager. You make your picks while batters are on deck in their actual MLB games, allowing you to…

3. Make adjustments as the games are in progress. Is Justin Verlander having another off night? Load up on his opponents! And if the weather doesn’t cooperate or a player gets injured there is…

4. No need to worry about rainouts or injuries. In Fanamana, you only pick players that are actually playing. Every DFSer knows the pain of being burned by a rainout or an injury to one of their players. You spend the whole day crunching the numbers seeking out the best value play, only to watch it all go down the drain when your highest-priced player goes down early. With Fanamana, that is of no concern because there is…

5. No salary cap to bog you down. Don’t get us wrong, poring over stats is still important. But rather than trying to figure out a player’s value based on his assigned salary, you can really dig into the numbers to make your managerial decisions. Is Nelson Cruz feasting on lefties? Should I avoid any Yankees against David Price even though McCann has absolutely owned him in his career? You’ll always be on the edge of your seat because…

6. Fanamana replicates the drama of a real game. Have you ever had bases loaded with 2 outs a DFS? Well you will with Fanamana. The experience is addicting like Candy Crush, and although we want you to play a lot, we also don’t want you to abandon your loved ones. That’s why we allow you to…

7. Play at your own pace. You don’t have to glue your eyes to your phone during dinner. You can make a few picks, eat with your significant other, make a few more and come back before bedtime, or even tomorrow.

8. Oh yeah, one last thing. In Fanamana Baseball, runs are the name of the game, not fantasy points. If Mike Trout hits a double for you followed by a Miguel Cabrera home run, that’s two runs crossing the plate.

So what are you waiting for? Put on your manager’s cap, download Fanamana in your app store, and grab a few bats to start beating your opponents senseless!
