The 6th man is that player that comes off the bench and makes a big contribution to the game - some of my favorite players have been 6th men - Jerry Stackhouse being the biggest one. That explains the name - it doesn't explain why it relates to FMF and truth is it doesn't. It's the sixth edition of the column - hope to reach 106 one day - and basically the 6th man came to mind when I started writing this. If you want me to actually do som thinking I'll you to consider me the 6th man of your budget - helping you score something for free especially during crucial times!
