2009 Home Run Derby - Action Boy Wins

Unread postby swerb » Sun Mar 08, 2009 9:27 pm

Fun, cheap little pool to give us all a little extra interest in the 2009 MLB season.

Could not be more simple. $20 to play, enter as many teams as you like. $1,000,000 to pick 8 sluggers (must pick 8). Most total HRs at seasons end wins. We'll figure out how many places we pay once we see how many entries we get.

Pay Pal me entry fee to richswerb@gmail.com or PM or email me at richswerb@gmail.com for my address to send a check. Teams due/can be edited up until the first pitch of opening day. Post teams in here or PM them or email them to me. The more the merrier, feel free to send this link to anyone you feel may be interested.

Anyone have a guess on how many total HRs takes this? 220 or so? That's an average of 27-28 per guy.

sorry, but stats are through 5/30. I was bored, so I set up a database for it. I'll try to update every week or two.

Thanks to Action Boy for letting me know!

Delmon Young is such a stiff. I take anyone besides him, I'm right there with you AB. Great team you drafted.

Josh Fields isn't far behind Young. Much was expected from Fields, but now he has lost playing time to Beckham. We always seem to be locked in a battle no matter the pool - lol. I fear McLouth, Choo and Hunter getting red hot.

Action Boy in the Money again. He knows all. I might not play Survivor this year because he is so good. Either that or I wait until he posts his picks. Anyway, congrats AB

We need to buy a casino and have this man run the show. You know, sort of like Sam "Ace" Rothstein played by Bobby DeNiro in Casino.
