2011 MLB Pick 30 - PHASE II - LOOKING FOR PLAYERS

Unread postby swerb » Mon May 23, 2011 8:41 am

This is a very fun pool. A lot of fun, excitement, and smack talk for 30 bucks. We run three phases each season. Each phase lasts about 50 days and we take a couple week break between phases.

Here are the winners from the last three years, and Phase I this year:

2008 Phase I - Lead Pipe 21-9
2008 Phase II - Lead Pipe 23-7
2008 Phase III - Swerb 24-6

2009 Phase I - Bill Henry 22-8
2009 Phase II - Lead Pipe 23-6
2009 Phase III - Swerb 21-9

2010 Phase I - jjgmyers 22-8
2010 Phase II - jjgmyers 24-6
2010 Phase III - Earl 23-7

2011 Phase I - tpcatfox 21-9

OFFICIAL RULES

Phase II will last 52 days. Starts on Monday, June 6 2011. Last day of selections will be Wednesday, July 27 2011. NOTE - the MLB All-Star Break is July 11-13, essentially making this a 49 day phase, with 19 "PASS" days.

The rules are simple. Pick one baseball team each night to simply win their game. You cannot pick the same team twice. And you have to select all 30 teams in baseball one time.

Contest lasts for 52 days. So seeing as how you need to pick every team in baseball one time and one time only, there will be 22 days you don't pick a game. Use those PASS days wisely when there is no strong selection amongst the teams you have left to use. All picks must be time stamped, in this thread, no later than the official start time of the game per MLB.com or else the pick is thrown out. While you don't have to post your picks until the start time of the game you are selecting (example: can post a pick for a 10:05 PM EST game at 10:01) ... you cannot change a posted pick once the days first game is underway. If your team is rained out, you get a PASS for that day and have to select that team for another game in the future.

The winner is the person with the most total wins after the Wednesday, July 27 games end. Winning % means nothing. Most total wins. If two people are tied at the end, and one is 22-8, and another is 22-7 (say due to a day #52 rainout) ... that is still a tie. Only category that means anything is total wins.

If everyone makes all their picks, each entrant will have picked exactly 30 games, each team in baseball one time, over a 52 day period. $30 per player, winner take all.

The tiebreaker, once we get there, and if we need it ... will be to pick the winners of every baseball game on the last day of the contest, Wednesday, July 27. And note - July 27 is both the final day of the contest, AND the tiebreaker day. Any competitors who could potentially be involved in a tie will have to pick the winners of all 15 games that day. And also identify their final Pick 30 selection, if they still have one pick left to make. The second tiebreaker, if needed, is total runs scored by all the teams you selected to win in the final day tiebreaker. Third tiebreaker would be run differential.
