Baseball Postseason CONTEST

I've decided to hold my second contest ever and it's going to be a lot of fun. This is something that I've done with friends for a few years and everyone seems to enjoy it, so I hope that you all do too. 

Here's the deal-all you need to do to enter is to be a follower of the blog and fill out this 2010 MLB postseason bracket. Since none of the match-ups are decided yet, it's blank, but on Monday morning, or whenever all the postseason spots are locked in, I will re-post a filled out bracket so that you don't need to figure everything out on your own. 

It’s pretty easy to play, just pick the teams you think will win each round of the playoffs up through the World Series champ. All rounds are weighed equally. To avoid a tie, you also need to select the number of games the World Series will last (between 4-7) and the total number of runs in the final game of the World Series. If there is a tie after all that, then random.org will be used to decide the winner. 
Just like for my last contest, as far as the prizes go for this, I was going to list a bunch of cards that the winner could choose from but I have decided to just say that I'll work with the winner to make sure that they are happy with their winnings. It will be something good from my selection of autographs, inserts, short prints, and base cards. Your prize will be something that will make you happy.  

If you link to my contest on your blog, I will let you submit two brackets.  Everyone else gets one. Start spreading the word and check back on Monday morning for the match-ups and to begin submitting your guesses.  Cutoff time for submissions is going to be just before the first game start time on Wednesday.  Good luck everyone!

Usually with these brackets I pick the two teams that I would least like to see in the WS. It works out pretty well.
