What's the prize for coming in last place?

ASU74 wins in total points, and he also had the closest pick to Stony Brook's average runs scored over their three-game series with LSU (which was 4.66). He was the only player to guess within a run of the actual average. Props to ASU74.

But check out "tied for second": Four people with scores of 19. If Fred hadn't won, the tiebreaker here would have been critical. Official second place goes to Florida Beaver. Some more notes:
  • Seven of eight correctly picked UCLA 2-0.
  • Six of eight correctly picked Arizona 2-0.
  • ASU74 was the only one to get three of the four supers right, and the only one to correctly pick Stanford 0-2.
  • Nobody picked Oregon 1-2. In fact, everyone picked Oregon 2-0, so that was worth only 1 pt.

You get to play again.

Okay, here's what I'm thinking for CWS predictions. Two Pac-12 teams is not enough to work with. So I'm thinking of picking the winner and runner-up for each bracket and the win-loss record for each of those four teams. For example, you pick Team A 3-0 and Team B 2-2 to finish first and second in the left bracket, and Team C 3-1 and Team D 3-2 to finish first and second in the right bracket. No predictions on the overall winner...too many possibilities for nobody to get it. Or maybe as a tiebreaker. Not sure.

If we only get 8 people....

I'll provide explanations of possibilities.

Thanks DM. I'm going to have to get the good scotch out to make my picks. It should make for a fun evening. It's a good thing I have an OSU education. Imagine having a U of O degree and trying to comprehend. DM, do you have a version for dummies?

Not sure how this will work out. Made up rules and points on the fly, but I can probably iron out the wrinkles on the fly too, if any come up. Open to all baseball fans, of course. Pick the winners and runners-up in each CWS bracket.

There are four ways to win a CWS bracket:
  • 3-0: You beat the first team, beat the winner of the other game, then beat whoever emerges from the loser's bracket.
  • 3-1: You beat the first team, beat the winner of the other game, LOSE a game to the loser's bracket survivor, then beat that team.
  • 4-1: You beat the first team, lose to the winner of the other game, beat the winner of the loser's game, then beat the 2-0 team twice.
  • 4-1: You lose your first game, then go Oregon State by beating the other game one loser, beating the loser of the winner's game, then beating the 2-0 team (Rice) twice.
For our purposes, we are not concerned with the subtle distinction between the last two, so we have three options: 3-0, 3-1, or 4-1. What you will do is pick which team from each four-team bracket wins and whether they do it 3-0, 3-1, or 4-1. You will also pick the runner-up from each bracket and whether they finish 2-2 or 3-2.

Points are awarded on this basis:
  • Correctly pick winner 3-0: 9
  • Correctly pick winner 3-1: 10
  • Correctly pick winner 4-1: 11
  • Correctly pick runner-up 2-2: 7
  • Correctly pick runner-up 3-2: 8

If you pick the winner or runner-up but you are off in terms of games won/lost, subtract two points from the lower total. For example, if you pick Stony Brook to win 3-0 and they win 4-1, you get 9 minus 2.

You may also get up to half the points for picking one or the other team correctly but swapping winner and runner-up status. For example, if you pick Florida 3-0 and they finish 3-2 runner-up, you will get 4 points.
Here are the brackets. (I believe the upper one in this list is being called Bracket One and the lower one Bracket Two):

Seed. .ISR. .RPI. . Conf . . .Team
2 . . . 1 . . 2 . . .PAC . . .UCLA
. . . .55 . .52 . . .AmE . . .Stony Brook
3 . . . 4 . . 3 . . .ACC . . .Florida State
11. . . 7 . . 9 . . .PAC . . .Arizona

1 . . . 2 . . 1 . . .SEC . . .Florida
8 . . . 8 . . 8 . . .SEC . . .South Carolina
. . . .13 . .10 . . .SEC . . .Arkansas
. . . .43 . .48 . . .MAC . . .Kent State

A sample ballot would look like this:

  • Stony Brook 3-0
  • UCLA 3-2
  • Kent State 4-1
  • Arkansas 2-2

ASU74, is there a code life on St Pauli Girl? I may have a six pack in my garage from 10 years ago.

Yo! super regional winner two years in a row.Applause

Beavers: Everytime the Ducks have me convinced they are winners & I pick them---they loose. Therefore I will entertain all bribes from Beavers & RD ( & any other Duck) on how to pick next year. Just send your prospective bribe to my PM for me to evaluate. I will accept money, ST. Pauli Girl beer, Kelt XO congac or even game tickets. I will consider individual or collective offers. If it is a real important game I will accept round trip plane tickets from Houston to the destination of my choosing. Welchers will have to answer to Quito! Gun

I have in the past. Did not get many takers. It's one reason I jumped over here whole hog. That and the Nike ads and spam that proliferated once there was no moderation. They still have a better collection of nationwide fans there, and discussions are pretty good. But I hitch my horse in one spot.

Were you Marky-Marking it up on Opihi's "Horton hears a Boo" thread? You earned about 8 negative marks in that thread alone with one barely incoherent message after another. I'm gonna hafta check the times you posted to see if you were marky-mourning in the morning. Funny thing is, I was going to give you a thumbs-up on one of your posts to bring you even (you were -1 at the time). Now, well, what's the point.....

I might have to give it a try. I worked for the Southland Corp (7-Eleven Stores) for almost 20 years. We closed a store down and I brought home a bunch of beer and much of it still sits in my garage from nearly 15 years ago.

I found a great publication while searching through the Journal of Human Resource Occupations. The publication is called "Looking for Beaver." It has been praised when you need a beaver lickety split.

What good genes he has. I often wonder how much we should contribute our successes and failures in life to hard work and how much we should contrubute to our parents.

Conforto was also named the NCBWA's National Freshman Hitter of the Year on Tuesday, June 12. He was one of seven players from the Pac-12 to be named to one of the NCBWA's three All-America Teams - and the only position player from the conference - and one of only three freshmen nationally. With the selection, he becomes the first player in OSU history to be named an All-American as a freshman.

Conforto led Oregon State with a .349 batting average, 13 home runs, 76 runs batted in, 131 total bases and .601 slugging percentage this past season. This from a guy whom a prominent Duck fan on this board said "flew under his radar" all season, even though this humble reporter remarked on the freshman's accomplishments almost weekly. Well, I guess if your radar is part of the SETI project and you're beaming into outer space in search of alien life forms, then yeah, I guess he could have flown under your radar.

Anyway, lucky to have this guy and looking forward to him mashing for the Beavers for another couple years.

Great to see the Pac go 2-0.
