The Draw is Set…

In an attempt to create even more drama for the Club, visionary tournament director Dan Einhorn, implemented a lottery system to determine the pairings for this year’s Fall Classic tournament — in place of the standard “top ranked-worst ranked” system.

“Is the S.H.I.T. system being gamed?”

“Does Creten have a too much money and time on his hands?”
