Playoff Contest Closed, Good Luck!


Now that the playoffs have officially started, you can no longer submit a bracket. We have 34 entries and you can see what everyone picked in this handy little spreadsheet.

I still need a few things from a couple of you, so if your name is in yellow, please contact me. Mostly the problems are with people not following the blog to lock in your picks.


Here's a breakdown of who selected which teams in each series.

Division Series


Rays 13
Rangers 21

Tigers 17
Yankees17


Cardinals 4
Phillies 30

Diamondbacks 11
Brewers 23


Championship Series

Rays 2
Rangers 7
Tigers 13
Yankees 12


Cardinals 2
Phillies 20
Diamondbacks 3
Brewers 9

Rays 1
Rangers 3
Tigers 4
Yankees 4

So if the majority of you have your way/are correct, we are going to see a Tigers-Phillies World Series with Philly prevailing in the 6th game that has a total of 8 runs.

The least picked scenario is a Rays-Cardinals World Series with the Diamondbacks coming out of nowhere to winning it all in a four game sweep with 1-2, or 14+ runs scored in the final game. I'm pretty confident in saying that scenario is extremely unlikely.

Personally, I'd rather see a Rays-Brewers World Series that goes 7 games.

Good luck to you all!
