Congratualtions to the participants that won the Division Series!
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)
Dyhard (for Kagan McDuff) (Rangers) against Hobbes (Red Sox) http://www.fannation.com/throwdowns/show/594481
In a bit of a surprise, the talented Red Sox shut down the powerful Texas lineup in four games. Red Sox advance. (6-2)
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)
Hobbes (Red Sox) starts the TD against WinTwins (Twins)
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)
The Brewers knock off the defending champs to make their first World Series appearance since 1982. Brewers advance. (9-4)
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.
