             BRETT CARMAN 2006 BASEBALL PLAYOFF CHAMPION ON TIE BREAKER
     Brett Carman won the baseball playoff predicts by beating Randy Lang on the tie breaker by 4 runs.
The tie breaker was the total runs scored in the World Series (32).  Both Brett and Randy scored 138 
points.  Third was Phil Hensley at 132 points.  Brett picked the World Series Champs Cardinals 2nd.  The
next highest pick was 4th by Randy, Bob Thomas and Andrew Hazelwood.
    RANDY LANG 117, PHIL HENSLEY 116, BRETT CARMAN 109 WITH WORLD SERIES REMAINING
     Randy Lang leads Phil Hensley by a single point but all three predictors have a chance to win the baseball 
playoff predicts with the World Series remaining.  The World Series matches Detroit (8th pick concensus)
vs St Louis (7th pick concensus).  Some fine predicting by us!!  Three of us including yours truly have
Detroit and St Louis as our last two picks.  Great predicts just wrong order.
RANDY LANG HAS COMMANDING 13 POINT LEAD OVER BRETT CARMAN
     After the first round of the playoffs, Randy Lang has a commanding 13 point lead over Brett Carman in the 2006
baseball playoff predictions.  Eight of ten predictors picked the Yankees (4), Minnesota (2), or LA (2) and those
three teams won one game combined.  Randy Lang's pick of Oakland 1st is the only 1st place pick for the four
remaining teams.  The four remaining teams are the 3rd, 6th, 7th and 8th place concensus teams.  We would all have
probably done better if we would have drew the teams out of a hat!!  Except for Randy Lang who has
the four remaining teams 1, 2, 4 and 8.
