The carnage was glorious on day one, with several players riding the heavily favored Rangers, only to see them get molly-whomped by the on a roll Rays. The red hot tpcatfox, who CLEANED UP in the TCF MLB Pick 30 pool this year, takes the early lead with a $176 win on the +160 Rays.

16 players, $800 to the winner.

You're right. Call was made. Game will be resumed from the point it left off, thus all wagers remain in tact and no new ones can be placed.

I'll allow people to pull back their bets if they want. Otherwise, they remain in tact as it is the resumption of a game in process. No new bets on the game obviously.

Unless otherwise requested before the re-start of the game tonight, bets made yesterday will carry over to tonights conclusion at the same odds.

That sucks I would have obviously pulled back my bet had I seen that post only a few hours before the game. I saw the post earlier in the day which I didnt agree with b/c any venue would make that a no bet.

Plus I was getting only +112 now with Fister on the mound which I would never have done.
