Assuming $30 isn't your life savings , it's just a fun thing to do.
As for whether you're an idiot, I don't know you well enough -- but Mark DeRosa is telling me to go ahead and vote yes.
While extremely unlikely, $30 to win $5,400 sounds like a reasonable risk/reward. Not an idiot at all.

If (or maybe I should say when) you win, I am assuming a significant portion of your winnings will be contributed to TwinsDaily.com to help it to continue to evolve into on of the premier webpages on the world wide web.
A portion (all?) of the potential winnings have already been committed to the "Get DeRosa out of Retirement Foundation".

And then Auburn won the national title and he won like $4k.

Is it wrong I was ready with my answer before I even clicked on the thread to see why?
This! Exactly this!
But I voted no. As a moderator I feel I need to, ahem, 'set an example,' and can't really approve of calling anyone an idiot, whether there is any validity to it or not.

If you'd had a 'Why not' button, I woulda gone for it. Might still...
Anyway, central to the beauty of the game is that it's 162, and who gets hot at the right time. Don't forget injuries... I have a Barves fan crying in my beer right now. Even have an El Birdo buddy who put $5 on the Twins to win it all this year.
Over the course of a long season, crazy stuff happens- even good stuff. Witness the 2012/2013 BoSox. Or, the 86/87 Twins...
