MLB 2016 Tipping Comp


With spring training starting soon, the MLB 2016 season will begin soon.

The rules are as follows:
1. One point for a correct tip. You may tip home or away (there are NO ties in baseball - games go into extra innings to determine a winner, even if they play 18 or more total innings)
2. Deadlines are Friday midnight FT (6am* London, 10:30am India, 3pm* Sydney, 5pm* NZ) with a two hour period of grace. Stars are noted by places that DO observe daylight saving time.
3. There will be a one point deduction if tips are posted after the grace period. Default will be the higher of six points or Wooden Spoon score, and will be your score if you tip after the first game starts, which will be about 12 hours after deadline.
Ex: Wooden Spoon score is seven, default is seven. Wooden Spoon score is five, default is six.
Note: We will tip the Saturday games each week, excluding the final day of the season (Sun), and the Sunday/Monday games to equal 15 for the first week of the season.
Bonus points:
1. One bonus point for picking a result solo, or one of two (12 minimum tippers to apply).
2. One bonus point if no more than three games are missed (one or two games may be postponed (games may be postponed due to weather (rain or snow) in baseball) to earn this point). Three postponements or more do not earn a bonus. (i.e., 10+/13, 11+/14, 12+/15) The previous year's comp will determine next year's eligibility.
3. Tips of all homes or all homes bar one are ineligible for any bonus points.

Only in very early part of season if there is an April snowstorm.

In case of Friday postponements, the FIRST of the Saturday games will be the one counted for our comp, as per MLB rule 4.13f.

I'm in, if I can figure out the Rules particularly Rule 3?

Is tipping the same as picking a winner?

What is a default wooden spoon?

Are we picking each game or certain games only?

Are we picking for a day, a week, or what?

When are the new picks due?

Why are we picking homes?

I want to play if someone can help me understand the Tipping Language.

1. Each correct tip will earn you one point.
2. Deadline is 2am Saturday Ohio time (as Ohio and Virginia are on the same clock, I don't have to convert).
3. You must tip by 4am Saturday Ohio time to not incur a deduction.

Yes. You bold who you think will win. Example: if the Texas Rangers are playing the New York Yankees in New York, and you think Texas will win, you would use [ b ] and [ /b ] (without spaces) as follows:

Texas Rangers at New York Yankees

Default is what you will score if you do not tip. Wooden Spoon is the lowest score of the week.

You pick all 15 games that are posted, as shown above.

Originally Posted By: terraorca

We pick for all of the Saturday games, except the first "week" of the season, and the final day of the season, which both fall on Sunday.

Originally Posted By: terraorca

All picks are due by 4am Ohio time to not incur a deduction, and by first pitch of the first game to not be considered default.

Originally Posted By: terraorca

You could pick all homes, but if you do, you would not get a bonus point if you are the only one to correctly tip a game, however, you do get the point for the correct tip.

If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me or another tipping comp organizer (gtho4, Howie72, illiniman14, spanishliz, srini701) for clarification.

I hope this will give you some clarification...and I'm doing this at 2:40am! grin

Thank you for the assistance, I need all the help I can get.
I play a lot of Fantasy Sports and in another life I bet a lot, but this is my first dalliance into tipping.

I'm confused with the first week's tipping line up. How are the Giants playing both the Brewers and the Diamondbacks (both away), and the Braves playing both the Nationals (at home) and the Marlins (away)? Even using Saturday and Monday games wouldn't account for that would it? For example, the Braves are home to the Nationals on Monday 4 April, but don't play the Marlins away until Fri/Sat/Sun the 15/16/17 of April. If you want to go to Saturday the 9th it would be Braves home to the Cardinals.

I haven't looked at the Giants' schedule, but it does seem rather odd.

First three games are on Sunday, and the others are Monday or Tuesday. Saturday's games are the last of the spring training games.

I found the mistake...it's the Tigers playing in Miami.

Why two Giants games though? They are playing the Brewers on both the Monday and Tuesday. The Rockies are playing the Diamondbacks from what I can find.

(Also, may the two of us who have already picked change our picks once the list is revised, without penalty?)

Absolutely, as long as it is before deadline...which is about ten days away...lol.

Just to go the MLB Week 1 thread here: Week 1 and hit the 'reply' button at the end of the original post with all the teams listed. Copy and paste all the matchups into the text box. There, you can either: 1. highlight the team you want to pick and click the "B" button above the text box to bold it; or 2. just type [ b ] (without the spaces) around the team you want to win.

*indicates late tips


Welcome to the 2016 MLB tipping season! We will have plenty of baseball action over the spring and summer. Trash talking is permitted, provided it stays within FT guidelines; trash talking the Yankees, Angels, and Athletics is all but required...for yet another year!! grin grin You can see who I am a fan of...if not, you will by season's end. wink

The Yankees got beat at the Stadium to start their season, which starts out on a good note for this anti-Yanks fan...can they lose the other 161 now? Please? wink wink

Had we used a default from before, default would have been a lot better then...but was too "across the board"...

No shows this year consists solely of BxBarracuda, and we have two new faces in yoyoandcigs and terraorca. Returning tippers from hiatuses are: spanishliz, PaulE, and ElfTwinkle. Illiniman14 notes in week 2's thread he forgot to tip, so he will start at ozzz2002's six points next week.

At some point, everyone's name will get lit up somehow...whether it be good or bad...so be prepared... wink

**A reminder: any inactive tippers will continue to receive default scores weekly. If they are in last place and 2nd last is several points ahead, they will automatically default to the 2nd last score.

Another reminder: games can be postponed due to precipitation, so there may not always be 15 games scored.

Until next week, everyone, smash one out of the park! smile

*indicates late tips


Not a good week overall, as two games were rained/snowed out, or was deemed "too cold" to play. We went further into the season last year before our forst postponement.

Is this the year of the road team? It seems that way, as ten won away from home again. That puts us at a 71% away strike rate over two weekends. Something tells me this won't last...

Turnabout was fair play to the Giants as they won on Friday 3-2 in the 10th inning, after going hitless for 7 1/3...they lost tonight 3-2, and again in 10.

San Diego couldn't score at home in their series against the Dodgers, but they get 5000 feet in the air, and they go on a scoring rampage...they scored more by themselves than all other games scored combined between their respective teams (closest was in Atlanta, where both teams scored 14)!

The Rangers beat the lowly Angels at Anaheim, much to the delight of this tipper! No half price pizza for everyone in Dallas, as they didn't score the magic seven, but a win is a win!

Last week, paper_aero took the first bonus point of the season with his stellar picks, and this week he does it on a solo pick (Boston strong, are we, paper?) ElfTwinkle and ozzz2002 had some faith in the Athletics to win in Seattle, and gain the other two.

Last week, yoyoandcigs lost apoint for his late tips, and this week, takes his first Spoon of the season, sharing that with spanishliz. There's still 20-plus weeks to go to gain some cutlery, everyone!

**A reminder: any inactive tippers will continue to receive default scores weekly. If they are in last place and 2nd last is several points ahead, they will automatically default to the 2nd last score.

Another bad week, as only a select few score more than half...four of 16 (25%).

Dizart and wwe84 had faith in the Braves winning after starting 0-9 on the season, and Dizart also jagged the Cardinals to lose at Busch. Two games were missed by only one person, as 15 of us jagged the Pirates and Cubs to win.

If it weren't for Melvin Upton, Jr., these results may have waited until morning...lol. He hit the winning home run in the 14th inning at about 2:05am Eastern time.

More home teams won this week than the first two weeks combined...

Spanishliz goes from worst to first and evens herself out with awards.

The Rangers started out behind the O's and was down 4-2 after five, but pulled a 6-spot in the 7th inning. The other two grins are because the Angels and Yankees both lost! (much to the delight of your tipping comp organizer)

Sypher and ozzz2002 are our first defaulters of the season, and in both cases, they each only dropped one place.

**A reminder: any inactive tippers will continue to receive default scores weekly. If they are in last place and 2nd last is several points ahead, they will automatically default to the 2nd last score.

Another reminder: games can be postponed due to precipitation, so there may not always be 15 games scored.

Until next week, everyone, smash one out of the park! smile

No overnight games this week as the last pitch is thrown just before midnight...lol.

Howie72 had his sights locked in and takes a bonus point for his stellar picks of 12/15. On the flipside, dg_dave and ozzz2002 fared not so well, and each take a Spoon for their low score of 5/15.

Again, we had two default, but not the same two as last week...this week, spanishliz and LeoDaVinci failed to tip.

After a no-no by Arrieta and a blowout on Friday, only ozzz2002 and wwe84 saw the Cubs losing at Great American Ball Park, and they did...in a rout. On that flipside, ozzz2002 missed the two games where 15 were correct...he had Minnesota winning in DC and Atlanta winning at home (the Mets quadrupled up the Braves, and the Nats kept the Twinkies off the board altogether). Only four got word of the rout at Comerica, and eleven figured out the Cards would rout the Padres (didn't the Dodgers shut them out their first three games...in San Diego?) While not a rout per se, only three saw the two-time defending AL Champions losing at Kauffmann to the O's.

Only paper_aero (1st), Sypher (3rd), and srini701 (16th) kept their spots from last week. Several new highs and lows were set: illiniman14 (T-16th), wwe84 (2nd), terraorca and PaulE (T-9th), and Howie72 (4th) with new highs, and then dg_dave (14th) and LeoDaVinci (7th) set new lows, and Dizart (4th) tied his low point.

**A reminder: any inactive tippers will continue to receive default scores weekly. If they are in last place and 2nd last is several points ahead, they will automatically default to the 2nd last score.

Another reminder: games can be postponed due to precipitation, so there may not always be 15 games scored.

Until next week, everyone, smash one out of the park! smile
