After a successful Over/Under contest during the regular season, we decided to stir our competitive spirits again for the playoffs. We explained the rules (and picked our teams) on Episode 72 of the podcast. We also made our playoff predictions on that episode, which make us look very dumb now. Thanks, Rangers.
The rules of the game are that you had to pick a fantasy team of players from playoff teams. The positions to fill were: C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF, OF, OF, DH, SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, RP, RP. The only stipulation was that you must have one player from each of the 10 playoff teams. The scoring is rotisserie style with these categories: HR, RBI, OBP, SLG, SB and W, ERA, SV, SO, WHIP. The winner receives $25 from each of us, so $50 total. If one of us wins (unlikely with 59 teams), the other owes him $25. Below is a top 10 leaderboard; the full standings can be found at this link. Click around on the tabs of the spreadsheet (bottom of the page) to see your team's stats, along with some other helpful data. We will do our best to update the numbers every day. Make sure to follow us on Twitter, so you know when updates are available. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for playing!
