MLB Pick 30 Pool - Lead Man Cometh

Unread postby swerb » Fri Apr 11, 2008 2:06 pm

Starts Monday, April 14th. Ends May 31.

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

Contest lasts for 48 days. So seeing as how you need to pick every team in baseball one time and one time only, there will be 18 days you don't pick a game.

The winner is the person with the most total wins after the May 31 games end. Each entrant will have picked exactly 30 games, each team in baseball one time, over a month and a half time period.

$20 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, Sat May 31.

I'll throw in the following as well for the winner ....

~Any item you want from The Cleveland Fan online store

~$25 gift certificate to The House of Blues downtown

~Copy of Steve Buffum's "B-List: 2007" book about the '07 Tribe

~Copy of "Tony's Top 50 Indians Prospects" book by Tony Lastoria

~Copy of Sean Harvey's "One Moment Changes Everything" book about former Browns safety Don Rogers

Winner take all. $20 to play. Send me a check or PayPal it to me by the end of April.

PLUS, I'll give out a TheClevelandFan.com coffee mug to ALL participants who finish higher than TCF resident handicapper Mike "Lead" Piper.

I'm taking the Dodgers tonight. Kuroda gets it done at home against that horrid Pirate offense.

Wanted to start this thing off with a good matchup for a bad team. But there's none out there tonight!

Oakland A's rookie pitcher Greg Smith and Pirates center fielder Nate McLouth were heartbreakers on day one, sending five people to 0-1 starts on a day that saw just three wins from the field. In total, eight people lost. Six passed.

Smith pitched 7 innings of 6 hit ball against the hot hitting White Sox in just his second MLB appearance, and also picked a couple runners off base in the 3rd and 7th innings to thwart rallies in the A's 2-1 win. Oakland, picked by most to be one of the worst teams in baseball, is now 9-5 on the young season.

The Pirates McLouth came into last nights game with a 12 game hitting streak and was leading baseball in hits. With the streak in jeopardy in the bottom of the ninth and two outs, McLouth did this to LA's normally reliable closer Takashi Saito:

After Saito's implosion, I need a night to clear my head. I'll pass.

Rally Squirl is out of the pool. Miscommunication on my end, thought he was in.
