Since baseball can't begin soon enough, we're starting early this year with our MLB Predictions contest! Same rules, as always, applies. Good luck to all who enter.

For the killjoys who may want to enter but don't want to join the forum, you can email your picks to me here: tbinnall@hotmail.com

Some rules & prize info ...

    * You only get credit for exact picks (i.e. if you pick the Mets for NL East and they win NL Wildcard, you get no points for that). However, in the event of a tie, such transposed picks will be used as tiebreakers.

    * After 2009's stunning victory by usofe member MysteryMan, we instituted an additional prize: usofe champion wins the right to appear on the 2014 edition of the Baseball Special as a guest. Note, winner of this prize may opt out if they don't want to appear on the show. In the event of a mass tie, as in 2011, there shall be no on-air representative.

    * So ... winner gets a shout-out on BoA:Audio, bragging rights for one year, and a spot in the BoA Hall of Champions. usofe winner gets a spot on the 2014 special. If the usofe winner's points exceed the BoA:Audio winner's points, that person will earn the sole claim to the BoA Baseball League title (after 2009's controversial Loren Coleman v. MM debate).

    * Presumptive deadline to enter is Sunday, April 7th, 2012 ... but we're flexible about that for folks who wish to join up after hearing the baseball special.

    *Previous Champions:
    2008 BoA:Audio Baseball Special -- Richard Dolan
    2008 usofe Baseball -- redsonsuperman & smokincat
    2009 BoA:Audio Baseball Special -- Loren Coleman
    2009 usofe Baseball -- Mystery Man
    2010 BoA:Audio Baseball Special -- Tim Binnall
    2010 usofe Baseball -- LeagueMinimum
    2011 BoA:Audio Baseball Special -- Jason Offutt
    2012 BoA:Audio Baseball Special -- Paul Kimball
    2012 usofe Baseball Special -- shotz90s


And now ... make your picks ...

MLB Prediction Contest Final Scores

Loren Coleman - 2/13
Jason Offutt - 2/13
Rich Dolan - 2/13
shotz90s - 2/13
Paul Kimball - 2/13

Since Bishop & Binnall tied with 3/13, we go to transposed picks, where Bishop wins by virtue of having 6/13 playoff teams to Binnall's 5/13. Greg Bishop is your 2013 BoA:Audio Baseball Predictions champion.
