Fun new baseball game for May 2011
Ok, here is the collection of links to prior versions of the game...
April 2010 (World Series: rekrap over Dr. John Zoidberg, 3rd place: Patience over Mr F)
May 2010 (World Series: Abstract Actuary over OddSox, 3rd place: SirVLCIV over bfore13)

Post All Star Break 2010 (World Series: bfore13 over Abstract Actuary, 3rd place: Blue Eyes White Dragon over GoHuskies)
April 2011 (World Series: Dr. John Zoidberg over violaactuary, 3rd place: Halfmoon over dinosaur)
This game is open to 32 players, no more, no less. The last 8 standing from the April game (Dr. John Zoidberg, Oliver Klozov, dinosaur, strategygamer, Halfmoon, yankeetripper, violaactuary, and OddSox) are guaranteed a spot in this month's game, but the other 24 spots are up for grabs. All you need to do to enter is choose one team from each of the 10 groups below:
The 32 players will be split into 2 leagues, each with 4 divisions of 4 players. Over the course of 15 days from May 1st - 15th, your roster will match up against that of each of the 15 opponents in your league. After the sign-ups are complete, I will slot the teams into leagues and divisions, and post the daily head-to-head schedule.
The scoring is as follows:
+5 points for each win by a team you selected
-2 points for each loss by a team you selected
+1 point for each run you win by in your victories
Total up your points for the day and compare to that our your opponent and see who gets the W and who takes the L. After May 15th, you will have played all of the other members of your league. In case of any ties for division title and/or playoff spots, there is an off day built in the schedule before the playoffs start, where the tie can be broken with a head-to-head matchup. There will be 8 playoff teams per league, composed of the 4 division winners, the 2 next best W/L/T records, and then the 2 next best total points scored. For seeding purposes, the division winners will be seeds #1-4, ranked by W/L/T record, they will get to choose their opponents for the first round, thus determining which wild card teams get slotted into seed #5-8. There is no reseeding in the playoffs.
There will be an extra day built in between each playoff series, in case an extra game is needed as a result of a tie in the playoffs. The playoffs start on May 17th and are all best-of-3 format. The first round is May 17th-19th, the quarterfinals May 21st-23rd, the league championships May 25th-27th, and the World Series May 29th-31st.
Sign ups are open now, and feel free to ask any questions in this thread...

"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -- Woodrow Wilson
