By a wide margin, osgonlz is ELIMINATED.  His golfers were just too good.

amorak and bobprobert both hit the nail on the head, and each will receive two power play clues (amorak technically won on the tiebreaker).
never got my clues...
Nor I.

Are we all individually voting or am I just sending in one vote for the team?
You vote individually.

I should looked at the math a bit more.  Pitches seen was the most important stat.  Hitting a 3 run HR is worth the same as someone who strikes out after fouling off a bunch of pitches...

That definitely lines up with my conclusion. The earlier in the batting order the better, because patient hitters who get up more often will score the most.

If you are off by 1-2 runs, you get 50 points.
If you are by 3-5 runs, you get 0 points.
If you are off by 6+ runs, you lose 25 points from your total.

It would be awesome if someone in this challenge was related to one of the Little Leaguers and got them to shave some runs.  And then to get caught.  And then the front page of ESPN would be filled with stories of the Little League run shaving scandel...that can be traced back to a forum game on WhatIfSports...that offered no prize.  I think if that happened we would win the internet.  Just throwing that out there...

Official ruling:

If this happens, that person automatically wins.

Yup. No argument here.
8/16/2014 10:58 AM
Need picks by noon
8/16/2014 4:09 PM
So only got picks from 1 person.  I'm away, so I'll make a ruling tomorrow.
8/16/2014 5:04 PM
D'oh! Life completely got in the way, and I dropped the ball. Sorry!
