    Alright everyone, I think it's time to get this thing up and running. I caught the first game of the Grapefruit League on the radio today so I am stoked.

    So there a few changes to this years BIF. So here's how it'll go:
    1. everyone picks their team of choice.
    2. the BA'ers in the 2012 MLB BIF will have first crack for their choice of team; and I'm sure rtaps will take Houston....so don't ask. They will have one week, by next Mon - March 4th, to pick.
    3. the BA'ers in the NFL will have the same (one week) to pick their team, if no one from last years MLB BIF takes that team, they're yours. Then they'll go to the next in line.
    4. all teams must be picked by March 30th. Any team not picked will not count towards the winning(s).
    5. first come, first serve.
    6. the teams that win the World Series and come in last in the league are the 2 winners.
    7. everyone but the two winners will ship a minimum of one container of beer, any size/style/flavor, to the two winners.

    now the change:
    8. at the end of the regular season, the teams that don't win their division will all ship one container of beer to the person who picked the team that won the divison. AND the winner of that division will ship one container of beer to the team that came in last in the division.
    9. everyone will have a 2 week time frame to ship the division winnings, at the end of the regular season.
    10. and everyone will have approx one month to ship, to the two winners, after the last game of the World Series. The date will be posted at the end of the regular season.
    11. you must have at least 5 trades and/or BIF's under your belt to qualify!!!! Sorry noobs.

    Shoot me a BM, and/or post in the thread, your team.

    Best and Worst of Luck

    And I'll take the Phils.

    I'll go ahead and pick Detroit.

    I wonder who will be the gambler and take Toronto. I'd pick the Yanks or Rays but I'm waaay too scared of the AL East this year.
  12. gkatsoris

    gkatsoris Member

    Now until March 30th lol.
  13. gkatsoris

    gkatsoris Member

    Everyone is picking Toronto for the AL East, so yeah that division is going to be scary to watch.

    I put you down for Detroit so shoot me a BM with your info; name, addy, cell and email when you get a chance. And as long as know one from the previous BIF's pick the Tigers (until Mon) they're yours.

    Aw man I was hoping you'd join and add to the trash talking. Sure there isn't another team you'd want?

    Cinn, st Louis, San Fran, Atlanta all have a decent chance of winning the ws. And Minn, Arizona, the royals all suck poetry bad lol. If not I understand....you're still salty from green bay shitting the bed lol.

    If it is possible for me to get in on this awesome action, and if no one has taken them, I would love to snatch up the Reds. I feel a 1990-like season comin' on!

    gkatsoris Member

    Shoot me over your info (name, addy, cell, and email) and as long as know one from the previous BIF dibs em before Mon, they'll be yours. I have to be honest here, the Reds are other team I picked to be in the NLCS this year.
