Postby Sid Bream's Slide » Sat Jun 30, 2007 2:41 pm

Have we already reached the melting point without any games being final?

I count 21 players left, so at the minimum, two more have to lose before we'll reach the melting point.

Do you mean that only 19 people have submitted picks so far? They've just got to get them in before the game they are picking starts. They run a risk of not being able to pick anything depending on which games Hammy locks and what he doesn't for them, but no, we have not already reached the melting point. In order to get an icon, you've got to at least survive this week. If 2 (or more) are not eliminated, then to get the icon we'll have to just keep making correct picks.

My pick of Tampa Bay losing to Cleveland looks like a lock. :-) I figured that surely with Sabathia on the mound against Tamba Bay there would be no way I would lose that one. :-°

Oh and Mad, the Angels aren't looking too promising tonight. :-o

Near as I can tell, only Stomperrob is eliminated for sure this week.

Yeah, they lost. My head is on the chopping block now on Sunday. :-o

That's exactly where we stand. Down to 20 now. If one or more people get knocked out today (Sunday), we'll be down to the melting point. Good luck everyone. :-o ;-D

Whew! Squeaked out a close one with the tying run thrown out at the plate to end the game! :-o :-) :-°

Still kicking myself for not going with my gut though. The only other games I could pick were the Mil/Cubs games and I thought for sure the Brewers would win behind Sheets, but with the Cubbies streaking (like 7 wins in a row), I wasn't too confident, so I took the Angles over Baltimore and figured they had to win at least one of those games. A nail-biter, but they did it. Had I gone with my gut, I'd still have 2 picks left (Milwaukee on Saturday, Angels on Sunday), but I guess I really shouldn't complain. If one more person gets knocked out, I'll finally get that dadgum elusive icon and it will all be worth it. :*)

Philly and St. Luis went final as winners, and that did the trick. Down to 18 players now. For those already in for next week, Congrats! ;-D
