Figured this would be a fun way to pass time here, so we're bringing the Survival Game to the MLB forum. Here's the rules:

Rules
1.) Each week, you must pick one team and that team must win 50% of their games or you get a strike.
2.) Two strikes you're out.
3.) You may NOT repeat teams at any point in the season.
4.) The first week will be April 7th through April 13th, and so on and so forth
5.) The only week we will be skipping is All-Star Break.
6.) In the event that all remaining are eliminated in the same week, they essentially get a "do over" and continue on.

Just to clarify, you're picking one team each week that you think will win at least 50% of their games. If they don't win 50% games, you get a strike. After you get a second strike, you're out.

So sign up now.

I'm in. I'll take Oakland.

EDIT: Oops never mind, thought we were starting this week. I'll get back to you.

Also just wondering, why are the weeks Sunday-Saturday instead of Monday-Sunday?

I'm in. Do we pick now? Can people pick the same teams?

Yeah its just like an NFL survivor pool. You can pick the same teams as other people but once you pick that team you cannot use them again.

Ok. Never played one of those before either, so you understand my confusion. Laughing

I, like Eagles, will be waiting to pick as well.

Any time between now and Saturday and you can change them between then. And yes, you can pick the same team as others. You just can't pick teams you picked in previous weeks. So if I pick the Cardinals for next week, I can't select the Cardinals again.

Also. Please do NOT edit your post, otherwise it'll be considered cheating and you'll get a strike. If you want to change your pick, quote the original pick and say you're changing your pick.

Easier to keep track of.

Another fun thing to do my buddy did it last year with a group of friends and they voted for a MVP... pick a player every day and add up the stats at the end of the year and see how you did. I believe his only rule was you can't pick the same player more than once in a month.

I will pick a team as well but I will wait as most.

I'm in.

But I have two points

1. I want to make sure 50% gets you through, right? So 3-3 is good.

2. You should change the start date to April 8th and have the weeks run Monday through Sunday. That is generally how baseball works. Otherwise you are starting mid series which is strange.

1.) Yes, 50% gets you advanced.

2.) I'll consider it. The way ESPN has it set up is on a Sunday-to-Saturday basis, which is easier for me to check. But I'll put serious consideration into it.

Leave it to ESPN. How a network devoted to sports can't even figure out the way baseball sets its schedule is incredible.
