hey everyone, I am in a league that has both an AL and NL. So to determine the winner between the leagues we have a Playoff Pick'em format. My team is in the AL so I have the option of the first pick or choosing to have the NL representative make the first pick. The draft style is snake, so if he picks first I get the next 2 and so on until all 8 teams are gone.

The 8 playoff teams are of course

Yankees

Twins

Angles

Red Sox

Astros

Cardinals

Braves

Dodgers

I am leaning towards opting to have the 2nd pick and take either the Yankees, Red Sox, or Cards back to back. I feel there are 3 top teams in this thing and I'll get 2 out of 3 of them.

Here is the scoring break down to determine the winner of the whole league. I get these points based on the 4 teams I pick.

Now, don't you think it would be advantageous to have 2 teams from the AL and 2 from the NL so that it would be more likely that I have BOTH the teams in the world series which would pretty much cripple my opponent?

This is very very complicated and I am not an expert at math. Can anyone tell me what they would do here?
