Bracket busted? Better hop in to the MLB pool, where the excitement is a thousand times less and there's no prizes!

Here's a link to last year's pool if you need to get a grasp of what's going on here- http://onyourownadventures.com/hunttalk/showthread.php?t=258458

Dainer is our defending champion. I hope you have been wearing that title with pride the last six months.


RULES


Each player lists his picks in descending order for each division, his (two) wild card choices for each league, as well as his pick for the worst team in baseball (fewest wins).

At the end of the regular season points will be awarded as such:

One point for each correctly placed team.
One additional point for each correctly picked division winner.
One additional point for each correctly picked wild card winner.

A perfect score is 40.

Tie breakers will be decided by whoever's worst team has the least wins.

If there is a tie within the division, both teams will count for both spots occupied.
Example:
Boston and Tampa Bay tie for 2nd place in the AL East. If you had either of these teams in the second or third position, you will receive the point for that team. If you had one in second, and the other in third, you receive points for both teams.

Lets do submissions due by Midnight on April 5, the night of the Sunday opener.

Damn! Competition.

I was hoping I'd win it by default and not have to do any math.

Your Mariners look tough.

The last time they were projected this well was 2010, when they finished the season with 101 losses. I know better than to get optimistic.

I for one enjoy this thread every year....sooooo I will make it interesting. The winner gets their choice of a New Era 59/50 cap courtesy of me. I do reserve the right to refuse to send a Yankee or Dodger cap should the winner desire one of those.

If I win, Oak has to come to Idaho for my desert sheep hunt and tell me which one to shoot. :D

Win-win! Except I assume you mean CA bighorn. ;) I plan to be there for the CA bighorn season anyway.

Sweet!! I didn't want to belittle our Idaho sheep by putting CA in front sheep. :D

Now... if only we are so lucky!!

Whaaa...? Dodgers will be crowned 2015 World Series Champion! Have a heart. Come around to the light side and prepare a nice NEW Era Dodger cap. :p

Just to note, I plan to curve that flat bill... The new trends these days don't jive too well with my style. :)

I hear ya on the flat bill. Just can't like it. That said, I can't like that hat at 'tall. Now if it were a StL hat...

I bet Kershaw still wonders how Adams got the slider over the right field wall... :D
