    Default Return of the FOBL CUP

    With all this world cup talk I decided to bring back the FOBL Cup. I'll probably be doing it differently than in the past. I'm going to put teams into groups like FIFA Associtions (UEFA, CONCACAF, etc.) and draw will be determined like the world cup. Seeding will be based on a combination of this years record, BC and CP. There will be a group stage and a knock out stage for the Cup. Tie breakers will be head to head. Other tie breakers will be run differential, runs scored, runs allowed, then if all else fails Home Runs Hit.

    Groups will be as follows:

    Charter DCM Oldies Middies Newbies
    MIL LAS ARZ BAR ORO
    CAP SLC POR WIS MIN
    MON DAV COL BOS BRE
    POU NRW UTI MBJ KEN
    GRN AYR DES
    IND
    RIC
    TRE
    DUR
    TRI
    VIR
    HOL
    WIC
    SAC

    Draw procedures will be posted either tonight or tomorrow. FOBL CUP Draw will be completed on Monday 7/6.

    Ooh, I like the WC-style idea.

    Draw Procedures:
    Pot A Draw - top 8
    Pot B Draw - Remaining Charter teams go into this pot. (10 teams total)
    Pot C Draw - Newbies (5 teams) and Middies (3 teams) were selected in this group using random.org
    Pot D Draw - Oldies (3 teams) and DCM (3 team) were selected in this group.

    1. Two Charter Teams removed and placed into pot D to create 4 even pots of 8.
    2. Draw of the top 8 seeded teams from Pot 1
    3. To maximize separation of Associations, an additional pot (Pot X) was created for the non-Charter Teams. Two teams will be selected.
    4. The Two Charter Teams that were placed into Pot D are randomly placed into the group with the teams from pot X. This is to prevent 3 charter teams from being in the same group.
    5. All remaining teams are drawn sequentially from the pots in alphabetical order. Team can be skipped to prevent more than one team from the same association in the same group (except Charter Teams)

    Pots are Drawn:

    Pot A Pot B Pot C Pot D Special Pot
    HOL (1) VIR (21) ORO (9) SLC (15) POR
    CAP (2) MON (28) MIN (32) DAV (10) LAS
    TRI (3) RIC (18) BRE (12) NRW (16)
    MBJ (4) IND (17) KEN (19) COL (11)
    LAS (5) TRE (20) DES (13) UTI (26)
    POR (6) WIC (31) BAR (14) AYR (30)
    ARZ (7) GRN (22) WIS (29) POU (27)
    MIL (8) SAC (24) BOS (23) DUR (25)

    Groups will be drawn tomorrow!

    I thought IND and VIR should have been designated DCM, but that can go into the next iteration.

    DCM > Charter

    Groups C and D are definitely the groups of death. Group A is sneaky tough, too.

    Is the group stage going to be 1 game vs each team or 3 games vs each team? Just curious.

    I hadn't thought about that. I figured 1 game was enough. How was the old FOBL Cup done? 1 game series or 3 game series? If it's a 3 game series, i'll make the entire tournament 3 game series.
