2020 Event Summary: Baseball

Status: Locked

RULES: BASEBALL

Q1: Regular Season
All 30 MLB teams have been seeded roughly by preseason odds to win the World Series. You must select five teams totaling no more than 24 seed points. Teams may be from any division.

Your five teams will earn points as follows:
2 points for every regular season win
13 bonus pts to each division champ
9 bonus pts to each division runnerup
6 bonus pts to each wild-card berth
8 bonus pts for each playoff series win
5 bonus pts for a world series berth
10 bonus pts for a world series title

Q2: Postseason
MLB players and owners voted a record 16 teams into the playoffs, eight from each league and two with sub .500 records... They are seeded (by league, title and wins) from 1 thru 8:

National
1-LA Dodgers
2-Atlanta Braves
3-Chicago Cubs
4-San Diego Padres
5-St Louis Cardinals
6-Miami Marlins
7-Cincinnati Reds
8-Milwaukee Brewers

American
1-Tampa Bay Rays
2-Oakland Athletics
3-Minnesota Twins
4-Cleveland Indians
5-NY Yankees
6-Houston Astros
7-Chicago White Sox
8-Toronto Blue Jays


Your job is to pick 5 teams whose seeds add up to *at least* 17 points.

Your teams can be from either league or from a mix of NL and AL. For example, you could take the 1st thru 3rd seed from the AL and the 3rd and 8th seeds from the NL. Or both 7s and the 1s and 2s of your choosing.

First round games will be held in the better seed's home venue, after that the NL moves to SoCal and the AL to Texas. The World Series will be held at the Rangers park. Rounds are best of 3, 5, 7 and 7.

Points:
4 pts for a playoff win
-1 pt for a playoff loss
15 pts for a League Championship (the pennant)
19 bonus pts for winning the World Series

Picks will lock at the first pitch of the Wild Card Round, Tue Sep29 ~3p Pacific

Q3: World Series Tie Breakers
If ties seem likely, we will pick tiebreakers once the World Series matchup is set!

Q4: 2021 Regular Season
Ah, the joys of 2020 mean that we'll do it all over again sometime in the spring!
