PatsFan21 (Yankees) against WinTwins (Twins) http://www.fannation.com/throwdowns/show/593721

The Yankees faced elimination in game 4 at home so they sent out their ace on short rest. CC pitched well, but the Twins won in a low-scoring pitchers duel. Twins advance. (6-3)

Flambo Gus (Giants) against UH (Braves) http://www.fannation.com/throwdowns/show/594101

The Giants proved that good pitching and playoff experience is a tough combination to beat by defeating the Braves in four games. Giants advance. (9-6)

Sweetness 85 (Brewers) against Assassin (Rockies) http://www.fannation.com/throwdowns/show/593501

The Brewers continue their improbable run towards their first World Series appearance since 1982 with a road win in the 5th game. Brewers advance. (8-7)

The Red Sox overcame the slow start to catch the Rays and Yankees by the All-Star break. The veteran leadership propelled them through the second half of the season and playoffs over the Twins into the World Series. Red Sox advance. (8-7)

Flambo Gus (Giants) starts the TD against Sweetness 85 (Brewers)

http://www.fannation.com/throwdowns/show/601101

The Brewers knock off the defending champs to make their first World Series appearance since 1982. Brewers advance. (9-4)

Simple Rules

1. Start by Wednesday, May 4.

2. Pick the starting rotation for 7 games in argument 1 and assume the 2-3-2 format. You may make any additional arguments in arg 1 - it is not a "list first."

3. Start the TD with "WST"

4. Pitchers availble in game 1:

Cannot start game 4 starter: Twins, Red Sox, Giants

Cannot start game 4 or 5 starter: Brewers

5. Multi-media is allowed.

6. Like the real playoffs, the rotation will carry over into the next round:

  • Win by 1 or 2 votes, series went 7 games.
  • Win by 3 or 4 votes, series went 6 games.
  • Win by 5 or 6 votes, series went 5 games.
  • Win by 7 or more votes, series went 4 games.

For example, if your #1 pitches game 7 in the NLDS, he's not available Game 1 in the World Series. Pitching on short rest might work for or against you depending on the pitcher. Home, road, and ballpark might work for or against you as well.

Good Luck!
