GOG Results (by points) and suggestions for this year?[POLL ADDED}

Yes, I finally got off my a** and compiled the point totals for last years GOG. I don't have the averages---mostly because I didn't have a good way of calculating them last year. This year I'll do a better job of keeping track as the season progresses, so the work isn't so monumental at the end of the season.

Anyway, here are the final standings by point total:

I only included the top 60, because there were over 150 members who played at some point in the year, and only played once or twice.

For this year, I'm not going to do one for every series. Its just too much work, and I'm a lot busier right now. So this is what I'm thinking...

--A preseason GOG which will include predictions for both all of baseball and for the A's
--A GOG every three series which will have questions pertaining to all three.
--Separate GOG's for particularly big/important series.

For those of you who are new to AN, the GOG is a game wherein a number of questions are asked about a particular series, and posters compete for points.

An EXAMPLE from last year is:

(from a Red Sox series)

# Series Outcome (Four Games):
# Best SP performance by an Athletic:
# Total runs scored by A's in series:
# Outcome of Angels four-gamer with Tigers:
# Who hurts the A's more---Manny or Papi?
# Seeking Revenge---Paytons H/HR/RBI?
# Asleep at the wheel---Chavvys RBI/K/E?
# Total number of doubles to LF for both teams:
# Bermuda Triangle--A's errors in series:
# Do the A's blow a ninth inning save?
# A's reliever to pitch the most innings:

I'm planning on following the same format as last year.

I'd like this to serve as a forum for suggestions for this years game. What did you like/dislike about last year? Questions you might like to see, etc., to make the game better this year.

Again, sorry I dropped the ball in getting last years results soon, but I'm going to be more on top of things this year (spending the summer away from my A's in Chicago is going to glue me to the computer:)
