It occurs to me, now that I am looking at the scores, that I never explained the points system. I tried to come up with a way to award points for various guesses, since previous pools seemed to often need tie-breakers. Anyway, here's how you earn points:

 

Specific game points

  • Guess which team wins a game: 2 points
  • Guess the exact scores of both teams for one game: 5 points
  • Guess the exact score of one of the teams for one game: 1 point
  • Guess the difference between the two scores for one game: 1 point

 

Bonus questions

  • Guess the overall winner of the World Series: 10 points
  • Guess the total number of games that will be played: 5 points
  • Guess the jersey number of the first player to hit a homerun: 5 points
  • Tie-breaker - Closest guess to a random number between 1 and 100: 5 points (this will only be used in the event of a tie)

 

And, for what it's worth, @noodles and I both entered but we are disqualified. We just wanted to play along. 😉

  • Guess which boston basebell team sucks: 100 points

 

Anyways, I think i nailed the fifth question, but the points haven't shown up yet, not sure where they go.

I dunno, but I think the bonus question for which Los Angeles baseball team named the Dodgers sucks being worth 2,000,000 points might dwarf your 100 point bonus.
