Yes, it should be very entertaining. :-) I didn't give it a shot on the football side, but I'll be playing on our side this year. :-)

Lucky Ladders is my favorite game - I like the fact that it gives you an advantage when you play it every week, yet most players still have a chance to win it until the end. B-)

Can anybody tell me from the football side if the whole board ever did as pathetic as we did? Between the Angels and Yankees losing,
(Angels as of now losing 8-3 in 9th) that wipes out about 95% of the 1st ladders for all of the teams! Oh well, at least I know I won't be too far off the pace going into next week!

I did get one point. !+)

Had the dadgum Angels won, I'd have gotten 15 points because I had picks 3-5 right! Stupid Angels. :-[

At least that puts them on a loss coming here to Texas to play my Rangers though. O:-)

Yeah, this week was an example of me not doing what I should do - when I have "good feelings" about upsets, I need to put them at the beginning and not the end. I had feelings about Baltimore and the Mets today, but I put them at the end so that if my "weird" predictions were wrong I wouldn't be penalized. The problem is that they were both right, so I only got 3 games. :,-(

Do I get a cool little ladder and shamrock for winning this week?

Well, you should...theoretically you should have already gotten it. The weekly award winners are supposed to kick in as soon as the scores are finalized. :-o

There is a slight glitch in the system. For whatever reason I am a Lucky Ladders weekly winner on the Football Cafe right now, and we haven't played the game in months. :-S

This looks like something menyak will have to look at. I don't know if I can have it for you this week or not, but I'll see what I can do. :-)

I had a feeling that this game would be fairly difficult...or at least more challenging than the football version. There just aren't enough "sure wins" in MLB because of the pitcher/player changes that happen every day.

Guess everyone else needs to figure out a better strategy, although I was happy with my 3rd place performance - the head honcho has to do well at his "own" game! ;-)
