BEAT TODD'S PICKS MIDSEASON MLB UPDATE
Here are the Current Top 10 Standings in the Contest
Friday, August 05, 2005

Spawn.com wanted to take this opportunity to prove Todd wrong and hope you will help! As you know, every year we hold a contest to see if there is anyone out there who knows baseball better than self-proclaimed "psycho-fan" Todd McFarlane.

Todd issues this challenge yearly to listeners on his radio show and we open it up to all spawn.com users. Before the current MLB season began, we asked you to predict how the 30 MLB teams would finish at the end of the 2005 regular season, in order, by division. We received thousands of entries and our crack programming team developed a system to tabulate your picks against Todd's to see who deserves the bragging rights. Of course, this is just a mid-season update. The winner will be announced after the regular season.

Click here to check your score against Todd's and also against the current MLB standings. Remember, you have to beat Todd's score to at least qualify for the prize at the end of the season. If there are several who finish with a higher score than Todd, we will select the person with the best score as the winner. In the case of a tie, we will notify all potential winners who will take part in a tiebreaker exercise. Note, lowest overall score wins.

As a reminder, the winner will take home all of the 2005 McFarlane's Sports Picks baseball series -- 11, 12 and 13.

Here are the top 10 entrants so far:

Good luck during the rest of the season.
