I know I was a little unclear in explaining the rules to begin with, so here it is.
Each of you either picked or were assigned to a team. For the duration of that the tourney, you'll be arguing for that team, whether it be in arguing for players from the team or arguing for all-time teams. The topics will vary, but you'll always be arguing for your team.
And to avoid any controversy since I'm apart of the tourney, I've enlisted Ethan to help create and assign topics.
Each matchup will have both TDers squaring of against the two opponents. If one team wins both, then they'll advance. If it's split, we'll add up the total votes for each team and the one with the most advances. If it is still tied, I'll go to a 3rd party for the deciding votes
Now, the order of the teams listed was done at random, leaving this bracket, which some of you saw in the last blog post
Reds - Yakov and Rudedog
Indians - WAMU and ohio state cleveland fan
Red Sox - Golden Grillz and Sweetness
Brewers - Flambo Gus and Dyhard
Yankees - baseballguru27 and woahbigguy
Cubs - Lifer & Ass
Athletics - Tnerb & Auldone
Royals - IRB & RSP
Braves - Patsfan & UH
Now, for this week, we'll only be doing the play-in round between the Royals and Brewers. The winner of that will face the Reds, and then everyone will be under way.
Now, onto the topics
Royals vs. Brewers
Dyhard vs. RSP - In 5 years, who will be the winner of the Zach Grienke trade
IRB vs. Flambo - Best hitter for your respective team from 1980-current
If any of you 4 have questions, FM me. The person on the left starts the TD. Any other participants with questions, FM me also with questions.
Best of luck and let's have some fun
