As we pitted each bracket winner against each other in the quarterfinals, we expected the results to be a lot closer than they were. Shows what we know. We now have our Final Four, featuring three movies I absolutely adore, and one I'm not a huge fan of (but that has gotten a relatively easy draw so far). The Sandlot and Major League are battle-tested, playing through the two toughest brackets, and pretty much rolling the competition in each. As for Bull Durham and Ken Burns' Baseball, they've similarly rolled the competition in their brackets, though the competition hasn't been as fierce. I almost think the Sandlot-Major League bout is essentially the tournament final, but you never know. Voting on these two polls will end on Wednesday night, and your FINALS will be up on Thursday morning.
