MLB 2011 Tipping Comp


With spring training about underway, the MLB 2011 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)
2. Deadlines are Thursday midnight FT (6am* London, 10:30am India, 3pm* Sydney, 5pm* NZ) with a two hour period of grace. The final week's deadline will be Tuesday midnight FT, since that week will be Wednesday games. 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 away teams, and will be your score if you tip after the first game starts, which will be about 36 hours after deadline.
Note: We will tip the Saturday games each week, excluding the final day of the season (Wed). The season will not begin on Sunday as it has in years past, nor will it end on a Sunday. We will not tip the opening games on Wednesday or Thursday; it will start with the first Saturday games.
4. If you default for four (4) straight weeks, you will be considered an inactive tipper (you will not be dropped from the league) and will score default until you return. If an inactive tipper's score is the lowest and tips, their score will jump to the lowest active tipper's score.
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 two games are missed (one game may be postponed (games may be postponed due to weather (rain or snow) in baseball) to earn this point). In the case of two games postponed, one miss will earn a bonus. Three postponements or more do not earn a bonus. (i.e., 12+/13, 12+/14, 13+/15)
3. Tips of all homes or all homes bar one are ineligible for any bonus points.

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.

*indicates late tips


Welcome to the 2011 MLB tipping comp! Most of us are back for another dose, and a warm welcome to four new tippers: conorharvey, N-Bomb, George95, and rxbigdawg. No shows from last year are Dizart and davegrilla. This year we have 18 runners, and if we get one more or one of our no shows from last year, we will set a new record for any MLB comp, as one of the first few had 18 runners. It's great to see some of these records get broken!

Our three-time champ is not starting out well, but continues his Spoonless streak for the 34th week.

We have four players pick up bonus points with their picks (gtho4, Howie72, PaulE (x2), and one of our newbies, conorharvey).

Every game was tipped by at least one person, and one was tipped by everyone, so no Golden Woods.

**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!

I thought for sure I was going to end up with the spoon.

How does it feel for the first time in over a year not to be the one everyone is trying to catch Dave?

That was a great uniterrupted run as competition leader.

I got to counting, and it was 48 weeks! Even in '08, I wasn't leading at the beginning nor in '09 after one week. If all holds like it did in '05, '08, and '09, by week 7 or 8 it'll be back that way...or at least I hope so. wink

It's stickied to the top of the forum. Since I am not a mod, I can't sticky posts.
