COMMISSIONER'S CHALLENGE: The Lucky Ladder


ENTRY DEADLINE: Saturday, August 14th, 9pm ET


DETAILS: If you're a reader or fan of Fantasy Baseball Cafe, then you might be familiar with our next Commissioner's Challenge called "The Lucky Ladder." The Lucky Ladder is a message board game in which you predict the winner of an MLB game then decide how sure you are that a your pick will win. You'll be given a list of 15 games scheduled this Sunday and you pick the winner. Then rank your picks 1 to 15 based on how sure you are the team you chose will win. Use the 1 pick for the game you are most sure of and 15 for the game you are least comfortable with. Rank them all, 1 to 15. (Each game must have a different number assigned)

Here are the MLB games for Sunday:
Seattle at Cleveland
Florida at Cincinnati
Arizona at Washington
LA Dodgers at Atlanta
Baltimore at Tampa Bay
Detroit at Chicago White Sox
Pittsburgh at Houston
NY Yankees at Kansas City
Oakland at Minnesota
Chicago Cubs at St Louis
Boston at Texas
Milwaukee at Colorado
Toronto at LA Angels
San Diego at San Francisco
Philadelphia at NY Mets

The list of games is your ladder...the game you have ranked "1" is your first rung and "15" is your highest rung. The higher you climb before an incorrect pick, the more points you accumulate. Once you hit an incorrect guess, you're done. The object is to climb as high as possible without an incorrect guess.

Two points are awarded for each correct guess up to the fifth rung, three points for picks 6-10, and four points for 11 to 15. Ten bonus points will be awarded to the champion and five points for entering.

If two contestants reach the same number of rungs, the one with the most overall correct guesses will be The Lucky Ladder champion. Rain out or PPD games are thrown out and not counted.

RECAP:
-Choose a winner for each of the 15 games scheduled for Sunday, August 15th
-Rank your choices 1-15 based on how certain you are that your pick will win
-Give "1" to the game you are most sure of, "2" to the second most certain, etc ...to 15 for the one you are least sure about
-Submit your entry on the ESPN board or via email to the Commish
-Deadline is Saturday at 9pm ET

Scoring
-Five points for entiering
-Points are awarded for each consecutive correct guess starting with your #1 pick
-Two points for 1 to 5; three points for 6-10, four points for 11 up
-Ten bonus points awarded to the winner
