It looks like my chances of winning my own contest are quite good, as only Adam Smoot of Bright Orange Seats and Tom Green of 4th and Fail gave us their playoff picks. You can view everyone's picks and point totals as the playoffs move on here. Some interesting points to note:
- Everyone thinks the Yankees and Angels will win the ALDSes.
- I had the only bracket without the Yankees in the World Series.
- Tom and I like the Cards to win it all, while Ted picked the Rockies and Adam picked the Yankees.
- Adam also gave us an extra-special super-specific prediction: "World Series goes 7 games, Jeter bats .182 with 0 RBI, A-Rod bats .367, with 11 RBI, tying Mantle for 2nd most RBI in a World Series, the universe collapses into itself and life as we know it comes to an end." Not bad...
UPDATE: After the divisional series, Adam is in the lead with four points, followed by the field with three points each. Adam is the only entrant left with his World Series choice still in it, but he does not have it locked up yet by any means...
