Opening Day is tomorrow, the players have been put through spring training, and so have some of us. We've been predicting throughout Spring Training with the winner getting two bonus points.
I'm going to give two point to both bbjones and Don. Good job guys!
And now for the rules to this year's competition. I'm going to try something new and see how it turns out. It may work as I hope, or it may fail. I am going to weigh picking the Reds to win. I am doing this because most people will instinctively pick the Reds to win. When they do, that is a lot of people fighting for the points. But when they lose, and let's be honest, that'll be shy of half of the games, only a small number of people are fighting for those points. I think we all know this gave the advantage in years past to those who constantly picked the Reds to lose.
3 points: If the Reds win and you have them picked and the correct score, you get 3 points.
2 points: If the Reds win and no one has the correct score, the closest score get two points. OR, if you pick the other team, they win, and you have the correct score you can also earn two points.
1 point: If the other team wins and no one has the correct score, the closest score gets one point.
Everything else remains the same. All entries must be in before first pitch, though I allow late entries if it's the first inning and nothing has happened. Predictions must be easy for me to determine who you are picking. Creativity is always encouraged, but I don't want to have to Google an obscure reference to see who you wanted to win.
You can either post your predictions in any of the threads or my twitter acct (joshuar9476). If you see that someone has posted in a earlier thread, please let me know for I don't always get a chance to go back and check. If I award points to someone else and you had a closer score, just let me know.
Don has won the last two years in a row. It's time for someone else to dominate.
