The baseball playoffs are BACK. And that means Pick YOUR Team is BACK. The first version of the event took place last year; Jacob B. beat out the other 58 competitors and took home the $50 prize. That same cash prize is also BACK.
This game is pretty simple. From the 2017 playoff teams, you must construct a team of players. The only stipulation is that you must have at least one player from each of the 10 playoff teams. Scoring will be a rotisserie system with the following stat categories: OBP, SLG, HR, RBI, SB and ERA, WHIP, SO, W, SV. Your team will contain these positions: C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF, OF, OF, DH, SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, RP, RP. The team that wins the league will win $50 ($25 from both of us). If I win, Paul will pay me $25. And if Paul wins...yeah you're right, there's no chance of that.
