MLB 2018 Picks Pool

Recommended Posts

Alright, I’ll count - if you pick.

Rules: By Monday night, April 2nd (which should’ve been Opening Day anyway) pick who you think will win each  division, and two wild card teams from each league. You will earn 1 point per win and, at the end of the season, earn 5 points for each wild card pick and 10 points per division champ you pick. You can still earn 5 points if you pick a division winner who only gets the wild card.

Anyone and everyone are welcome. It’ll be fun!

West - G-Men (I hope they don't pummel me like last year)...

Wild Cards - Dodgers, Nats

AL East - The Sawx

Central - Indians

West - Astros

Thanks Walter!!

@Walter, after spending the weekend at the ballpark, I've decided I don't care if Rick yells at me.  I'm changing my second AL WildCard pick to Sean's team, the Angels.

 

So there. (And thanks again)

I gotcha rick. 

Thanks.  Have not been on much.  Just had a hip replacement and my wife had a detached retina surgery.  Nothing going right and that includes the stinking Orioles

Ha.  Thanks.  Last nights game I loved.  Loved it. Buck Showalter 2  Boone 0.  And even though Tillman has been horrible, its just April and we have a bullpen today.  The Yankees do not.

 

ps  I realize Yankees have injuries but none are bigger than Trumbo for us.  If we have Trumbo last night that game is over sooner

At the bottom, or near the bottom; I'm not sure what the hell happened, except the G-Men are biting me in the ass like last year. All of my other picks seem kosher. I'm going to fret about this all night, maybe--or the whole month...

Anything for you, my dear. 😘

I’ve always enjoyed doing baseball statistics as a kid. Not quite the same, but still fun. 

It’ll get more interesting at the end of the season when division champs/wild cards are fought out. Such a long haul...

It could be worse.  You could be an Orioles fan.  Mutiny in the club house no doubt.  I have no doubt many of these guys have quit but for Machado and Gausman.  Gausman pitched two gems in a row and gets nothing.   A 9 inning shutout.  And they score a big fat 0.  Only Machado is hitting and playing.  Showalter must be fed up.  I just do not know where the problems started.  They are better than this.  They have been a playoff team 3 of the last 5 years.  Yet here they sit with the same record as the Reds.
