The Tigers and Rangers are underway, so that means it’s time for the next round of the MLB Pick ‘Em. After the first round, it’s a tight race, so we’re all eager to keep making a push for the lead like Tampa or St. Louis.
This time around, everyone was won over by Detroit’s performance against the Yankees, particularly by Justin Verlander’s leadership. The Tigers were unanimously picked to reach the World Series, with Justin Verlander the clear choice for MVP. The Cardinals’ upset of Philadelphia won them some fans, but the Brew Crew and Ryan Braun still have the home-field edge.
Like before, a series winner is worth two points while the series length is worth one point, but for this round, picking the MVP of each of the ALCS and NLCS is also worth one point. So with the standings still locked in a dead heat, be sure to check below to see everyone’s choices for the next round and check back afterwards for the results.
