Crazy having a big bet on something like this, but it's your money
Report Babelicious19 July 13, 2010 1:02 AM BST
Decided to go for quite a bit on Cabrera

Small bet on Nick Swisher

I really know nothing , ive simply gone for the fave and another pick at random

Let me guess Swisher is the worst one in it ?
Report Sachin_Steyn July 13, 2010 1:08 AM BST
I've backed Hart & Swisher. Tried to put a bit of reasoning into it, all rubbish probably but -

Hart quite high ranked up in HR out of those competing with lots of RBI's, decent price and Milwaukee parcipitants normally make last 4.

Swisher - New York only ever had 3 entrants before - 2 have won, huge price.

Can't be having Cabrera that short, Ramierz seems to big to be true so probably is, Ortiz is competing is like his 3rd/4th? so why should this year be any different, Wells is another outsider but Hart had better stats, Holliday i also fancied but seemed pretty short so Hart got the pick over him.

No it is a process of elimination (I think)

unless they've changed the rules they carry forward to the 2nd round and are reset in the final
