MLB Post-Season Pick 'Em, Final Standings: BoKnows plays through the rain and picks up three out of four points for the big win.

I started doing up the final results on Thursday, but it started to rain so the post was postponed until today.

BoKnows picks the winner, the MVP, and the multiple choice bonus to finish with a commanding two-point lead. Congratulations! At the other end, holden ended up with the fewest points of all players who picked in all rounds, so he takes home a much-deserved Costanza.

Extra trivia which didn't end up affecting anything: the highest batting average of any player with more than 10 PA was Jayson Werth's of .444. Ying Yang Mafia and boredom_08 were the closest. Woo!

Second place gah. I don't think I can win anything SportsFilter related. My trophy case is filled with second and third place trophies but it is sorely lacking of anything with a #1 on it.

Congrats Bo.

Wow, to think that I could have avoided this simply by forgetting to make picks one round. But this is something I'll wear with pride. As the talking heads said when Mike Maroth was on his way to losing 20+ games a few years ago, you have to actually be a pretty decent pitcher to lose 20 games.

Bugger. Only one point after the division series.

But congrats to Bo Knows, and to holden. As I demonstrate with these things, it takes blind luck to end up mid table, but to finish top or bottom takes some serious effort.

Second place gah

That's tied for second, YYM, and don't you forget it! In all honesty, I usually pull these picks out of my backside, since I have no idea what I'm doing. Congrats to BoKnows for his win and holden for his Costanza. Mostly, my thanks and congratulations to Dr. J for pulling this off without any fist fights in the grandstand. It's always fun.

Ah, but YYM edged you on the tiebreak, Howard, if it really comes down to it.

And I will definitely take my t-6, as it may be the first time i've remembered to continue posting picks the whole way thru a SpoFi pick'em event.

I'd like to thank all the low number people for their guidance over the last year and a half. I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks again, DrJ.

How low are you talking here? Lower than you, or really, really low?

posted by Ying Yang Mafia at 05:00 PM on November 07, 2008

Everyone's pretty much lower than me, YYM. But as much as it pains me to include a Wings fan, you sir, are low enough to deserve thanks as well. 3 digits for sure, and some select 4 digiters.
