MLB Post-Season Pick 'Em, Elimination Playoff Edition: It's technically the 163rd game of the regular season, but for SportsFilter's purposes the MLB post-season begins RIGHT NOW. Pick the winner of Tuesday's one-game playoff between Minnesota and Chicago, and get a leg up on the pick 'em competition.


Minnesota Twins (Blackburn, 11-10) at Chicago White Sox (Danks 11-9).

First pitch is scheduled for 7:30.


Pick the AL Central Division winner, and the margin by which they will win the one-game playoff.


Pick the player who will score the game-winning run. (NOT the game-winning RBI, but the player who actually crosses the plate.)

Ah man, I didn't see this until now. Are points from this edition carrying over to the regular playoff edition? If so, how many points in total?

Oh wait, the game isn't until tonight. Whew! I'm really out of touch with things right now. Sorry.

Gotta go with the Sox in this one. Sox by 5 and Paul Konerko crosses the plate for the winning run.

Twins by one game. (What, that wasn't what you meant by margin?) Oh, well then 4 runs.
