And 11 more runs produced. But I chose a simpler year.

The best thing about your example was the even 100 runs and ribbies.

Even your insults are stupid.
No insult. He was just pointing out what a sharp guy you are.

Sox don't make the World Series. Book it.

IIRC my preseason picks for the series was Astros-(Nats or LADs-don't remember which), with Astros repeating.

Pretty sure I had
AL div winners
Sox
Tribe
Astros

WC-Yankees (don't remember 2nd team, maybe Seattle)

NL

Nats
Cubs
LADs

WC-don't remember


Still think Astros should be favored.

All numbers should of course have a + after them.

It's an argument.

For my numbers today, I intentionally chose ones less likely to be subject to *, if not +.

I have all my picks saved somewhere. I will repost them, though it may take me until the end of October to find them. I expect uncanny accuracy.

If my math is correct, if Boston wins out and Baltimore loses out, Baltimore will set a Modern Era record by finishing 66 games back, beating the 1909 Boston Doves by half a game, and the AL record 1939 St. Louis Browns 64.5 by 1.5 games. The playoff era record - Detroit 2003, a measly 47 GB? Shattered.

The all time record, set by the egregious Cleveland Spiders in 1899 - 84 GB - is out of reach.  Better luck next year, Orioles!

Almost makes me want to root for the Red Sox for the rest of the year.

Preseason picks are cool, if you want to go back (we all had WAS, CHI, LA - I am sure)

But picks this coming Monday - after we have the teams all set - would be a nice contest (number of games per series as a bonus)

I will post mine if I remember

(FTR, I believe I had a HOU repeat - over Cubs - but could have been over Nats)

- Still mulling a +240 Cubs bet for the NL title.  Worried about their bullpen.  Staying way away in the AL. thoug best looking $$ would be CLE

I had a Cubs-Indians WS, with Cubs winning.

Well piss on that. Thanks a lot, Red Sox.

Not the most scintillating game ever, for all that it is lovely to hear Toddler Cello do the game.
