Baseball contest

Correct me if I'm wrong:

If the Angels pull out the ALCS, Caleb wins.

If the Phillies win the WS, Anna wins.

If the Yankees win the WS, Colin and Laura will use the tiebreaker. Unless both agree to share the Prize.


Hasn't the umpiring just been awful? Aside from the obvious plays at the bases, which have been many, the calling of balls and strikes has been horrendous. One pitcher two nights ago had the batter struck out according to Pitchtrax but the count was 3-0. I am now of the opinion that balls and strikes should be called electronically.

Oh my god this is so effing cool.

Caleb said...

So I'm out, huh? I pick all four of the Championship Series teams and one of the WS teams and still don't win? Bummer.

Dad said...

Hey, the rules is the rules.

If the Phillies win the series, Anna wins.

If the Yankees win the series, Colin and Laura tiebreak. Colin and Laura, if you both want to forego the tiebreaker, let me know. If you don't, I need total runs the Yankees will score in the series. Before the start of the first game.

I am so rooting for Laura and Colin - Judi

Laura said...

Wow, I almost forgot to do my tiebreaker. I'm not sharing the winnings with any Yankee fan! I say the Yanks will score 25 times in the series. Just a wild guess.

Luke Murphy said...

I just called Colin to make sure he knew about all this, he doesn't have the internet in his room. He says his pick is 26 points, so Laura best hope for some pitching duels!

Laura said...

HAH. ONE!

Colin said...

This is going down to the wire Laura, but it's good to know that Brad Lidge is rooting for me :)
