We’ve gotten a very small taste of the Major League Baseball season. One week in and a few questions have already been answered, we think.
Can the Tigers really be this good? Can the Twinkies be this bad?
That is for you to determine as I am once again hosting my Major League Baseball pick ‘em contest. That’s right. I did it last year and I’m doing it again this year so get your crystal balls out of storage.
The same rules as last year apply:
There are six divisions in baseball, three in the American League and three in the National. All I’m asking you to do is pick the winner of each division.
Here’s where things get tricky. Since there are six divisions, you must assign confidence points to each division champion. So, for example, if you are the most confident that the Detroit Tigers are going to win the AL Central, you would assign them six points. Assign five points to the team you’re second most confident about and so on until you’ve picked all six division winners.
As your tie-breaker, tell me how many games you think the Tampa Bay Rays will win this season.
Our winner will receive a SportsChump t-shirt and a gorgeous copy of Gary Cieradkowski’s “The League of Outsider Baseball: An Illustrated History of Baseball’s Forgotten Heroes.”
Best of luck to you all and thanks for playing.
