Ballcap Sneak Attack
Six contestants means in these early days we could see things shake around quite a bit. Especially on a day with four ballgames.
Today saw me notch my first points on the BCBIII Scoreboard. Pathetic. I kicked it up to five, behind the Tigers’ victory and C.C. Sabathia’s performance for the Yankees. Unfortunately, most of the rest of my combatants received those points as well.
Elsewhere in the bet—up the rankings a ways—Heydinger maintains his lead, while the guts of the standings jumble up: Riley and Benanav both had a big day and saw their rank improve.
Klueh nearly nailed the Tigers’ line, but it was Alburquerque—and not Fister—who got the W in Motown. And Riley nearly struck it big with his Nats pick, but again a reliever—Mattheus—took the win. The “perfect five” is proving elusive.
- That Nats-Cards game was kind of lame, then crazy exciting.
- Gio Gonzalez owes his team a steak dinner.
- Especially Jayson Werth.
- Bronx Mirage at Camden Yards. Postseason tally: I
- All the teams I’m really rooting for are up against my bracket picks.
- My bracket picks are winning.
God damn it, I’d forgotten how much I hate this fucking bet.
I must be an idiot to get involved in this shit-ass ho-balls crazy nonsense.
Four games in, and I haven’t scored a point. Fucking hell…
I’ve got a lot of catchin’ up to do.
Jeeeezisss Christ it’s been one long-ass clusterfuck of an off-season.
Let’s play some fuckin’ ball…
AL East: New York Yankees
AL Central: Detroit Tigers
AL West: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
AL Wild Card: Texas Rangers over Toronto Blue Jays
NL East: Philadelphia Phillies
NL Central: Cincinnati Reds
NL West: Arizona Diamondbacks
NL Wild Card: Pittsburgh Pirates over Miami Marlins
ALDS 1: New York over Texas
ALDS 2: Detroit over Anaheim
NLDS 1: Philadelphia over Pittsburgh
NLDS 2: Arizona over Cincinnati
ALCS: Detroit over New York
NLCS: Philadelphia over Arizona
World Series: Detroit Tigers over Philadelphia Phillies (in 6)
AL MVP: Albert Pujols
NL MVP: Andre Ethier
AL Cy Young: Justin Verlander
NL Cy Young: Matt Cain
Yeah that’s right… I picked the Pirates.
Y’know, I’ll even take it a step further and say the Jays just barely eke it out over Kansas City for that last AL Wild Card spot.
Pitman listens to game six — and lives to fight another day.
Well here we are, on the precipice of a second annual month-long diet of little besides top-tier baseball, extreme smack-talk, joys, frustrations, and wholly shot nerves.
While Heydinger hopes to avoid a repeat of last year’s complete and utter shaming, I hope to return as a your Ballcap Bet Champ-een for a second consecutive year.
Meanwhile, two new contestants have entered the fray in search of Ballcap Bet glory: Drange and Benson—Welcome to Thunderdome.
Rays 7 - Rangers 6 - W: Farnsworth
Yankees 3 - Tigers 2 - W: Sabathia
I’m hedging my bet on the Yankees, but going full-bore with the surging Rays.
Tigers over Yankees
Rays over Rangers
