2011 MLB Draft Predictions Contest


We're roughly five days away from the first day of the June Draft, so I thought some people might be interested in doing a predictions contest just for fun.  The Brewers pick at #12 and #15 in the first round, so for the contest I think it makes sense to have every entrant post their predictions through pick #15 in the comments blow.

Scoring: +2 points for every correct pick and +5 points for a correct Brewers pick.  A perfect "bracket" would be 36 points, and order matters (e.g. if you predict that the Brewers will pick Taylor Guerrieri at #12 and they nab him at #15, it's still 0 points).   Those values are just off the top of my head, so I can tweak the scoring if people would think something else would be better/more balanced.

Winner: The winner will be determined by the highest total score, with any ties broken by: 1) number of Brewers picks correct (2 > 1 > 0) and, 2) the longest consecutive string of correct picks (15 > 14 > 13 > ...) at any point in your "bracket."  The winner will receive the tremendous prize(s) of: 1) the overwhelming awe of the BCB community and, 2) the title and a permanent place in history as the Brew Crew Ball Grand Champion Draft Expert of the 2011 MLB June Draft.  Of course, all of your secret inside sources may remain anonymous. 

Deadline: Things generally become more definite by the day before or the day of the draft, so I was thinking that the deadline for entries be set as Saturday, June 4, at midnight CST.  This can be tweaked as well if people want something else.

1) Pittsburgh Pirates
