MLB Post-Season Pick 'Em, Final Standings: SportsFilter generated about as much offence as any team facing Barry Zito in October in the World Series. Final standings are inside!

Our Pick 'Em closely resembled the actual Series: short, sweet, and not much offence.

Sandoval takes home the MVP, and also happens to take the only intentional walk in the Series.

Ufez is the only player to score multiple points, but holden's lead is big enough to hold him off. Congratulations, holden!

Heh. To be honest, I figured the only way I had a chance was to wait for holden to post his picks and go oppo-field. Sandoval was a coin-flip with Posey. It almost worked?

Congrats holden.

Did littleLebowski play all three rounds? Because of so, that's an impressive Costanza- has there ever been a "Golden Costanza" in past pick 'ems?

No, littleLebowski only jumped in for the last round, which makes him ineligible for the Costanza. Same for NerfballPro.

Which leaves Ying Yang Mafia as the Costanza winner. Congratulations!

Also, we do have at least one Perfect Costanza in SpoFi Pick 'Em history. It was Folkways in the 2006 CFL Playoffs Pick 'Em.

I initially had wanted to say Giants in 4 instead of 5, but thought "naaaah"

Anyway, good job, holden. Well earned victory there.

Geez, I put up ARodish World Series numbers. Oh well, getting cold around here and having my employer trade me to Florida in November wouldn't be the worst thing that could happen.

Congrats to Holden and thanks again DrJE.

And I haven't been able to finish a SpoFi pick-em since. Why mess with perfection.

I took the time-honored approach of building a big lead and holding on for dear life. As I mentioned in the World Series clincher thread, fun postseason (if a bit devoid of drama at the end).

A fitting end to an ultimately disappointing postseason.
