BRETT CARMAN WINS 2001 BASEBALL PLAYOFFS
     Brett Carman rode 3 incredible Yankee World Series wins to win the 2001 Baseball Playoff predicting
title.  Brett defeated runner-up Jerry Slagle by a single point.  Gerry Hamilton missed the total
runs in the World Series by one to have the best tie breaker.  Jerry was the only predictor to correctly pick  
Arizona to win the series.  Brett had 3 AL teams in his top four that proved to be the winning margin - Oakland
gained Brett 2 points on Jerry.  
    This is Brett's 2nd Baseball Playoff title.  He also won in 1993.

     Going into the World Series, Brett Carman leads Jerry Slagle by 2 points.  Brett, Jerry and Atticus
Ryan are the only predictors with both the Yankees and Arizona in the World Series. Jerry is the only
predictor to pick Arizona to win the World Series.  Brett, Atticus and Phil Hensley all picked the
Yankees to win the series.  
WAYNE GEISLER LEADS NOLIE CARMAN BY 1 AFTER ROUND 1
     Wayne Geisler leads Nolie Carman by 1 point after the first round of the 2001 Baseball Playoffs.
Wayne and Nolie both have 3 of the 4 first round winners as their top 4 teams and both have
Houston last - great pick!  Brett Carman and Jerry Slagle are only predictors to have their top 3 
teams remaining.
     Five predictors picked Seattle 1st and 4 picked Oakland 1st.
