Winner Winner Chicken Dinner 10th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web Grand Prize Winner has been crowned!!

 





We have a winner!! Not only that but we have a very decisive winner.  In the end we had 12 people correctly pick the winner of this year's World Series.  That most definitely has to be a record in the 10 year history of this contest, but I don't keep those kind of stats.  Out of those 12 we had two entries that correctly picked the match up between the Dodgers and the Ray.  But we only had one guy pick the correct games in the series and so the winner is......drum roll please...... Chris aka Nachos Grande!!.  Not only did Chris get the Winner, the opponent, the number of games in the series, he was only one off the total number of doubles in the series.  




A perfect entry would have been Dodgers over Rays in 6, 17 Doubles.  Chris came pretty damn close.  So congrats Chris who wins the lovely Mr. Cartoon Don Mattingly Project 2020 cards and also a nice stack of his Reds. 

But wait it ain't over yet.  I want to thank the 40 people who entered this year, that might also be a record for the contest.  Just for entering I also give a door prize away to one lucky random person.  If you were kind enough to promote the contest I also gave you a extra entry in the door prize drawing and thank you to those who helped promote the contest this year.  I entered all the names of everyone who entered into a list randomizer over at random.org and randomized the list 3 times.

And our Door Prize winner is....


John Sharp!!! Who writes the delightful blog John's Big League Baseball Blog and is a Tigers fan.  Congrats John! I will be contacting you for your address shortly.

10th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web League Championship Finals

 


Wow what a couple of great LCS's!! Both going to game 7 and both looked like they might be run aways.  I was rooting for a Braves - Rays match-up. But damn if the Dodgers don't look tough to beat again.  That being said the Dodgers were the favorite to win the whole thing this year, at least judging from your entries and that also means we have a ton of people still technically alive moving into the World Series.  That being said what we actually have is a five way race now.

We have three picks that chose the Rays to win the World Series, none of those have the correct opponent so we'd have to move to # of games in series and maybe even into the double total.  But if the Dodgers end up finally winning there are two picks that correctly picked the Dodgers to defeat the Rays!  

Joseph Blaschke - Dodgers over Rays in 5, 9 Doubles

FiresNBeers - Dodgers over A's in 6, 15 Doubles

Ben Morris - dodgers over jays in 7. 18 doubles.

Sorry for the delay.  First I want to thank everyone who entered and all those who helped promote the contest as well.  Please look over your pick.  I've done my best to try and make sure I've gotten all the pick corrections in as well, but please  double check your entry.  If my count is correct we've got 40 entries this year, which might be a new record.  

As you know since I left the contest open through the wild card series' I let those of you who picked early amend your picks if any of the teams got a eliminated, however a few people who entered did not amend those early picks.  I figured there would be a few.  Also if you promoted the contest and don't see a PIMP by your name please let me know so I can make sure to mark your entry so you get the second Door Prize drawing entry.

10th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web - Final Reminder


Just one final reminder you have until tomorrow, Monday, Oct 5th at 12 pm Alaska time, 4 pm EST to enter the contest.  I've got a great Topps Project 2020 Don Mattingly card up for grabs and a nice stack of your favorite team if you win and don't forget the door prize.  

Again I'll remind you if you already entered and either team you picked got eliminated you can edit your pick, but commenting on your original pick on the sign up post with your new pick.

You can find the original sign up post HERE and good luck.  I'll have the official entries post up hopefully sometime tomorrow evening.

10th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web - Wild Card Series Aftermath - Please read if you've already signed up!!

 


Well my Brewers are out, which was not unexpected.  But as I'm typing this up I'm about to watch the last remaining game finish and the Padres eliminate that Cardinals.


So just a reminder that if you got into the contest early I'm letting you adjust your picks if one or both of your chosen teams have already been eliminated.  It's only fair, since I'm betting there are a few people who were waiting till after the Wild Card Series' were over to enter.  I'd have loved to had the contest closed before the Wild Card but that would have left me with only basically a day for people to find the contest and sign-up.  Anywho, if you've already entered the contest and would like to adjust you pick, either because one or both of the teams have been eliminated or you've just had a change of heart please pig-back your original pick on the sign-up post by commenting on it with your new entry.


Here is a link to the official sign up post.  Sign Up Here. 



Looks like the first Divisional Series game will start around noon Alaska time on Tuesday Oct. 5. so the contest will officially close right before that or around 4 pm EST.  Remember to promote the contest and leave a link or at least a note on your entry that you did it so I can give you an extra entry into the door prize drawing.

I will likely put out one more reminder before that, but thanks to all that entered already and don't forget you can change your pick.
