You've Unknowingly Been Entered in a Contest

Perhaps that has grabbed a handful of people's attention.  Having taken the last month off for a much need baseball break (the blasphemy!), I am back to start a tournament.  I know some of you rail against tournaments, and all they stand for, but hey, I don't have to cover The Cuse for a living.

So, in a similar theme to the Big Dance, I present to you the 2010 Tournament Within a Season contest.  The prize has yet to be determined, but all of those who have completed a trade with me have been entered.

Certified contestants include:
Dodgers - Night Owl, GCRL (Possibly GCRL to the Twins if desired)
Rangers - Play at the Plate
Nationals - The One and Only Plungerhoo
Rays - Collective Troll (A mercy entry based on the "car"nage of March 5th)

Pending Contestants:
White Sox - WSC
Marlins - The Wicked O
Phillies - Dan the Sticker Man
Braves - Cpt. Canuck

The tournament will function as follows.  The seeds are based on 2009 regular season records.  Each round is broken into 32 games.  Whichever team wins the most games out of those 32 games advances.  Therefore, the first round consists of which team has the better record from Games 1 through 32.  Second round is Games 33 through 64, etc.  Tie breakers are based on best head to head record, then run differential.

I went back a few years, and the finals and champion have been correct, so all you Vegas hounds can follow this tourney to know who to put your stack of '52s on.

If you want in at any time, contact me about a trade.  Just let me know what you're looking for, and I'll try and find it.  I'm up for vintage Topps and any Tony Gwynn's.

Play Ball!

I like it... Very creative way to encourage trades, too! The Nats are gonna make the 2nd round this year!

The Dodgers are the #1 seed over the Phillies? With Roy Halladay & Placido Polanco added to last year's mix?
