Hootenanny Standings After the First Round
October 13th, 2009 by slangon

So after the first round, here’s where we sit:

Nachos Grande (Albert Pujols, Joe Mauer, Chase Utley, Phillies) – 91

Slangon (Ryan Howard, Joe Mauer, Manny Ramirez, Phillies) – 87

Mark from Mark’s Ephemera (Robinson Cano, Manny Ramirez, Mark Teixeira, Phillies) – 78

Dan (Mark Teixeira, Andre Ethier, Michael Cuddyer, Dodgers) – 77

MattR (Albert Pujols, Chase Utley, Joe Mauer, St. Louis Cardinals) – 47

Mark from Stats on the Back (Albert Pujols, Joe Mauer, Mark Teixeira, St. Louis Cardinals) – 37

MMayes from 1972 Topps Blog (Albert Pujols, Mark Teixeira, Brendan Ryan, St. Louis Cardinals) – 31

Brian (Joe Mauer, Jacoby Ellsbury, Albert Pujols, Boston Red Sox) – 25

Tim from the Great Sports Name Hall of Fame (Albert Pujols, Matt Kemp, Victor Martinez, Boston Red Sox) – 20

It seems that the folks who picked the Phillies pitching staff  are all clumped up at the top. Perhaps we should all keep that in mind as we pick our round 2 teams. It’s all about the pitching. I wouldn’t get discouraged if I were you guys down at the bottom. I feel like if you end up picking a hot pitching staff, you could very easily close ground pretty quick.

With that being said, it seems the Phillies / Dodgers game kicks things off on Thursday. The time is listed as TBD, but everyone should get their picks in a half hour before the scheduled first pitch.

Good luck in round 2.

  1. Alright, let’s see if I can keep my good luck going…

    I’ll take:
    Utley, Werth, Abreu, Phillies pitching

  2. I posted my second round picks in the post before this, but can I change them? I’ve only got one guy different than Nacho, and it’s kind of hard to gain ground that way haha.

  3. Thats cool with me. As long as you get them in a half an hour before the first game starts.

  4. Ouch–I got smoked in the first round.

    I can’t pick any Yankees or Dodgers. Hopefully they won’t both be in the Series. 🙂

    Phillies pitching
    Torii Hunter
    Chase Utley
    Ryan Howard

  5. haha okay, here’s my revised second round picks then:
