I'm applying a bit of a change to the picks of +130dogs and Focus Picks. Last year I had found that a single team, or 2, would just wreck the results. There are 3 teams this year that are holding down the results. These 3 teams will remain as picks, but at a regular 1X amount. They will not be 7Xs until further notice.

They are:
Rays
Blue Jays
Rangers



Looks like good timing in taking these down.

And looks like a good thing I forgot the Sox played early today. That was my first win! LOL. I would be grateful for any advice on strategy that any of you would be willing to share.

Ah diamond....: nearly had a complete loose round. Which prompts me to ask Steeldco is this, do you have a preference of rank order for your daily selections? I notice you list selection as they are playing schedule on the day. On occasion you have said you feel team "x" is most likely a win section or loose etc. is that a gut feeling or preference rankings. I am aware that you are sticking to selections as presented as that is the sole purpose of this exercise. Meaning you are not letting personal biases effect the selections as an admission or an omission . That's actually what I like about your thread by the way. Thanks. It's the long term result I like. Thanks

I would have made money if the day was a complete loss.

Although I may comment from time to time about a specific pick, I never let that subjectivity influence what I post as a selection. Doing that would blow a big hole into what I do since you can't apply subjectivity consistently and therefore you can never really know what you do well, or do poorly. No consistentcy......no solution.

Yes. Most people would have tampered with it by now actually after a day or so is the normal human interaction. Results are not working I need to fix it. In doing so the taint the whole exercise. Good on you. Stick with what your doing. Hey it works for me. Cheers.
