    I'll take the "reins." Give me a few days to work up some rules. Feel free to express your interest prior to me posting...

        Hey Tex,

        When I was in Nepal, sat next to this stinky, muttering goat herder in an internet cafe, who keep grumbling about a "man of trains" who was taking his drinking money from across the sea. Wonder if "Train" is one and the same this eccentric fellow was talking about????

          Gentlemen, Ladies, I was going to start the MLB woofer series contest but Tex has the shell and chose a category type contest, which I also enjoy, as it enhances your capping skills by forcing you to cap different areas of a game.

          New players are always welcome, fun contest for cheap, please read rules below before making your picks.

          Any questions/comments/ideas/complaints/donations are welcome, pre start, post them here, all will be answered by me or one of the regular players.



          MLB CAPPING CONTEST 2017 ; Start Date - 6/26/15 - Monday

          35 USA, a man, payable via pp, when someone closes out all categories, 1 pick per day per category

          Tiebreaker --- In the event 2 or more players close out all categories on same day, tiebreaker will be next day, where players will pick all categories, winner being one who closes out most on that day, repeating each day until winner emerges from the fray.

          Cut and paste the following format and use to make your daily picks.

          1. 1st 5 favorite --

          2. 1st 5 dog --

          3. 1st 5 -1/2 RL favorite --

          4. 1st 5 +1/2 RL dog --

          14. Game + 2 1/2 RL dog



          Let me know what you all think? Too many categories, add V bombs, etc?

          Who's game?

                Well West,

                I hear thars lots of bandidos without badges roaming those parts, so maybe book is right to be fearful.

                Can you get a 1st 5 line from an online or does your bent book offer team totals, we could switch to that, let me know.....

                  I reckon wise i can hunt down some 1st 5 lines on some offshoot internet cafe that has those renegade offshore lines. Perhaps other players will chime in.

                      Been in a slump. So left for the desert a few days ago.
                      In the interest of the Harmony and Order of the Lounge; 14 Categories? So, what if no one wins before the college/ncaa football season begins? A lot of time vested in chasing rainbows. . . . . and that's how the "blank blanked". And as far as I've seen, very hard to find 5 inn. lines overnight or even in moning West Coast time. Though if you PM me I can make a suggestion.
                      As far as the 2.5 run lines, not usually avail. early. For me I'm probably staying on the sidelines for this one - for me.

                        Ivy, maybe we can change it to 2 picks per dog/fav and lose the 2 1/2's. I didn't take into consideration problems getting the lines early, my bad..Desert, huh, are you gearing up for Aug.21st, total solar eclipse, say best spot is in the high desert near Baker City, Washington, man I would like to get out there....

                          Yeah, Wise. Don'tget me wrong I love the 5_inn. lines. The M.L. lines on half-inning lines, it seems, appear only hours before start time of first game of the day. Though there may be hope for the 5 inn. totals/and -/+ .5 run lines. I'm in Nev. for one more night. I'll see how early I can find lines.
                          In form, throwing the bones! But need to hit a large fire bet, to make the trip worth it! Good Luck Cappers.

                            Been out most of the weekend so never really got to this. I see you wanted to start this today. That still on? I was going to send a big email out about it. Can we possibly move the start date back?
