Great Match rjt was like Apollo against Rocky, u just kept coming and fighting every time I would get a lead. Win the whole thing now bud!
PackAttack98 (131 months ago)
That was quite an epic battle. Congrats rjt721 on advancing. Jrod, that is some amazing capping skill you have sir. Be good. GL rjt721.
Microphone (131 months ago)
Good stuff guys. kept an eye on your battle. That was something.
rjt721 (131 months ago)
Thanks Jrod. Was a hell of a match for sure. Down to the last game of the last night. Like you said earlier, it's a shame one of us had to lose. Thanks Pack. And good luck Microphone in your match.
Microphone (131 months ago)
Likewise to you rjt721. As much luck as skill for us the deeper you go in my opinion.
rjt721 (131 months ago)
Twins. Interesting. Figured you would go Nats with your first pick and tried to block it. Tough for me to root for Yanks as a BoSox fan. Good luck.
Jrod124 (131 months ago)
yeah figured u would go Nats and if the Twins hit I would a slight lead going into the final pick. Figured it was my best way to "control my own destiny" Good Luck to you also
billyloco (131 months ago)
GOOOOD LUCK to both rjt & Jrod .. altho I favor Jrod since he beat the guy who beat me _ B>)
Jrod124 (131 months ago)
thanks Bill
CTsharp (131 months ago)
I submitted my pick 3 different times but somehow the line changed that many times within the span of 15 seconds, then when it finally said it was accepted and that I had 7 picks remaining I log back on afterwords to find out it wasnt submitted? What gives?
Teamprofit101 (131 months ago)
wow Gruntworker what happened?.......
Gruntworker (131 months ago)
Started 0-5 with a huge money line fav in bases that went down. I never learn... Need a HUGE comeback like you did last week!
Teamprofit101 (131 months ago)
I went 5-0 on my last five plays, I was being very picky. Baseball has been a bit crazy, so i tried to stay away from huge favs. Start being more picky....Good luck i hope you come back!!!
Microphone (131 months ago)
6 points in OT, wow. Something will happen at Coors (in addition to a 7 run inning). Yikes.
rjt721 (131 months ago)
Phew. Was sure you were on the Dodgers when I saw you had a play for 4:00. Only played them to shadow you. Almost backfired and put me in a -13 unit hole.
Jrod124 (131 months ago)
yeah Ethier with a huge homer there when it looked like Grilli would escape danger in the 8th. Yankees with a comeback to trim your lead to +5 to 0 through 2. This will be fun
rjt721 (131 months ago)
Great match. Back and forth.
Jrod124 (131 months ago)
yep it continues back and forth. you got 3 more picks than me so you will control where this thing goes
Teamprofit101 (131 months ago)
Good Luck Gruntworker!!!I'll be rooting for you
Gruntworker (131 months ago)
Thanks Teamprofit! What a great match we had! Had a blast man! GL w/your real bets!
billyloco (131 months ago)
GOOOOD LUCK Jrod!!!!
Jrod124 (131 months ago)
thanks Billy, 2nd person into the elite 8 Good Game Mp was a war
PackAttack98 (131 months ago)
Congrats Jrod! I enjoy looking at the leaderboard and seeing your unreal stats bro. Mp did make a heck of a match out of it, so props to mp as well. Roll on!!
Jrod124 (131 months ago)
thanks Pack, most of the reason my stats are so good unit wise is because my opponents have been on point. My last 4 matches have been epics with my opponent taking a lead at one point in the match. Remember if the Rangers dont beat the Reds I don't advance against you, thats how close our match was.
CTsharp (131 months ago)
best of luck jrod, you have been killing it.
Jrod124 (131 months ago)
thank CT Sharp, best of luck in your elite 8 matchup as well. Not sure who to root for there. Microphone is a class act as well
odusmykal (131 months ago)
Best of luck tonight Microphone..
Microphone (131 months ago)
You too odusmykal. Anything in plus units will win the way we're going. We'll have a Masters type of Monday night!
PackAttack98 (131 months ago)
Jrod, you are the man. keep doing your thing, and roll to victory brother!! GL
Jrod124 (131 months ago)
thanks Pack, LA Angels to clinch it otherwise I will need help
Jrod124 (131 months ago)
Something wrong with Miami it seems, was graded as a push when will more than likely be a loss. Not sure if it is like that for people who took STL
mp5070 (131 months ago)
Updated to a loss...it takes a while to update
Teamprofit101 (131 months ago)
I'm surprised i made it this far, just happy to be here good luck everyone!!!
mp5070 (131 months ago)
Same to you
Teamprofit101 (131 months ago)
Thanks
SBR Lou (131 months ago)
Best of luck in the Sweet 16 guys!
mp5070 (131 months ago)
Thank-you, Lou
Gruntworker (131 months ago)
Thanks Lou, been a fun contest so far!
Microphone (131 months ago)
Thanks Lou. You made MLB preseason interesting!
TheMetsSuck (132 months ago)
nice capping Jrod.....good luck the rest of the way
Jrod124 (132 months ago)
thanks Mets, mid week we had a war going. I just caught fire
HedgeHog (132 months ago)
CMoney advances if he puts 1 unit on Edmonton and 1 unit each on his remaining picks--preferably ML dogs. Basket-case is history.
Jrod124 (132 months ago)
shame will miss his running commentary in the comment section
CTsharp (132 months ago)
Im sure that will still happen somehow.
Microphone (132 months ago)
It wouldn't be the same.......
Nick Papageorgio (132 months ago)
Safe to say cmoney put baskets on fkn body bag?
CTsharp (132 months ago)
First night there hasn't been a peep from him. Not even going to ake the final play? ..deflated..?
CTsharp (132 months ago)
Make
Nick Papageorgio (132 months ago)
lol at laying 6.90 to win 3 in this contest baskets.
baskets (132 months ago)
wish I had your luck, cmoney. fukking you win in a shootout yest and by a half-point.... I cna't hit a -350 and a -230 .... ridiculous
baskets (132 months ago)
this is toast. can't believe I gave it away w/ the Blues yesterday.... that was the deal breaker
baskets (132 months ago)
pretty sure I'll win if Blackhawks can win.... would be nuts to lose a -275, -350 and a -230....
baskets (132 months ago)
lol at my strategy... I really didn't think that through... and just rolled w/ it... ha ha
baskets (132 months ago)
YEEEEEEHAWWWWWWWWW.... Cmoney pulls 2 wins right out of dunghole!!! Huge gonads!! Dis be a game again!!!
balla05 (132 months ago)
i just seen ya pick....taking st louis with so much juice -350....if u lose that pick ur done.
baskets (132 months ago)
u need 2 look again
balla05 (132 months ago)
Ahh, I see...u only bet to win one unit. but still a ton of juice...i bet you not feeling good at the moment when they are down 2-1.
baskets (132 months ago)
well, my tabulation gave a +1 unit win would mean cmoney would need 5 in a row ... he will have 3 in a row after the OSU game. think OSU will hold.. could be basically all comes down to the Blues game
bachngocduong (132 months ago)
TheMetsSuck much pick Columbus +290
Jrod124 (132 months ago)
