YED Contest Update

September 23 is Yankee Elimination Day!

We have a five-way tie in our contest.
                     NY     Last Red
YED Wins Sox Win


Lewis S 0923 89 ALDS 4
Franco B 0923 88 G 162
Chuck C 0923 88 ALDS 4
Zenslinger 0923 88 ALCS 5
Ofer C 0923 87 WS 6
The Yankees have 86 wins -- with five games left.

Note: If no one is right on the wins (i.e., New York wins 86, 90 or 91 games), I think we should skip over to the third tiebreaker. Although that could also end in a tie. I suppose we'll burn that bridge if and when we get to it.

The only other alternative would be to delcare no winner (if no one wins with the NYY wins) and do a Sox post-season contest. But if we do go to the third tiebreaker and no one is correct, then we have no time left for another contest. Thoughts?

I think you have to go with Ofer C if the yanks win 86. If they win 90 or more, give it to Lewis. If they win 88, then figure out how to tie break amongst those three.

I don't like how one person has a WS win for the Sox. Ofer should win if the Sox advance to the Series.

Technically Ofer has the Sox winning in six or losing in seven.

Use closest to, but not going over, as criteria. First by NY Wins, Then by Last Sox Win. Since they differ, there will be a winner! Otherwise, stick names in a hat and pick their names out!

Sounds about right.

If NY goes 3-2, 2-3 or 1-4, we are fine. And chances are good they will have one of those records.

Technically, yes. But emotionally- it's win in 6. (:

And I should point out that the reason I chose this date- besides it making sense to me at the time- is that it's the cunt's birthday. So happy birthday, Joba!
