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 2006 Entrants (in order of seeding):

  • Seattle (83-67) - Led the Ruth Division for much of the first half of the season.  Most wins in franchise history.  League Power Index: 4
  • San Francisco (80-70) - BWB Champs of 2001.  Started the season slow, but played great down the stretch.  Power Index: 8
  • Norwalk (77-73) - Strong contender in the Wagner Division for most of the year.  Power Index: 7
  • D-Town (75-75) - BWB Champs in 2004.  Came up just a bit short in the push for the Cobb Division.  Power Index: 9

Semifinals - D-Town wins in 6 games, San Francisco wins in 7.

 

Finals - D-Town vs. San Francisco.  They split the season series 3-3.

 

2006 Winner: D-Town Demolishers
