2009 MLB Over/Under Pool - Eck/Doc Win

Unread postby swerb » Sun Mar 08, 2009 9:50 pm

Another simple pool for the 2009 MLB season, one I am mimicking from a really cool NFL pool I am in that is very similar. Pick six teams to go over or under their projected 2009 win total. Designate your three strongest selections as gold, silver, and bronze.

Your gold selection, if you are correct on over or under, you get 4 points for every win above or below the o/u. Conversely, if you are wrong on the o/u, you lose 4 points for each win or loss above or below. Silver ... 3 points per win. Bronze .... 2 points per win. Other three selections ... 1 point per win.

Example: Gold selection is Indians over 86 wins. They end with 90. You get 16 points. 4 wins over total x 4. Silver selection is Braves under 84, they end with 87 wins. You lose 9 points. 3 wins over total, you had under. And so on.

Most total points at years end wins. $30 entry fee. Enter as many times as you like. Paypal me entry fee to richswerb@gmail.com or PM or email me at richswerb@gmail.com to get my address to send a check. Pool entries can be posted in here or PMd or emailed to me. Will decide how many places we pay when we see how many entries we get. All entries due by first pitch of opening day.

Does this make sense?
For a gauge, the unders were treated as 'over-losses'. e.g. Toronto's under 79
means they have to go over 83 losses. A 12 losses, they need 71 more to tie.
Right now, all numbers are negative. Hopefully, for most, numbers will be positive
at the end of the season.
