Second-Place Showdown

In honor of the 43rd President of the United States (heh, heh, heh), The Al Gore Cup is a forum for teams that finished second and most likely feel that they're more deserving than all of the other first-place teams to be in the championship bracket.

 

Teams are seeded 1-4 based on regular season records and play a best-of-seven semifinal round followed by another seven game series to crown the winner.

 

The winner receives a bonus of 1 million Benchwarmer Bucks.  The runner-up gets 500,000.

 

The 2007 Entrants (in order of seeding):

  • Kelly Bundy (89-61) - Rising from 4th place, hung tough for a while, but Gashouse was just too good.
  • Gladstone (89-62) - Last year was one game short of the league championship.  This season lost out in a 1-game division playoff.
  • Florida (80-70) - Top hitting team in the league, but 17 Pinesitter Pitcher starts may have killed chances as they fell 3 games short.
  • Parkville (79-71) - Moving up one place with 14 more wins than last season.
