The Questions (31 points possible):

  1. First home start since pure awesomeness. But Dallas'  career ERA versus the Tigers is on the wrong side of 7. Predict whether Dallas Braden gets a Win, Loss, or ND, as well as his K/BB/H [1 point each; 4 total] Loss - 2 K's / 1 BB / 6 H
  2. Thursday. Day game. That sick leave isn't going to use itself. Guess the attendance +/-50. What is the game time temperature as recorded by the 1pm-ish weather observation at the Oakland Airport? [2 points for the attendance, 1 for the temp; 3 total] 24,146 (anything between 24,096-24,196 gets points) / 65F - 18C
  3. Adam Rosales has a big, beautiful goose egg in the error column this year. Does he commit an error this series? [1 point] No errors
  4. Starting play on Tuesday, the Tigers are two games behind the Twinkies in the central. How many games ahead or behind are the Tigers at the end of the day Thursday? (Twins play two in Boston). [2 points] Tigers and Twins are tied
  5. Johnny Damon hasn't been doing half bad for the Tigers. Seriously, who even thought he'd BE a Tiger at the end of last season? Predict Johnny's H/BB/RBI/K. [1 point each; 4 total] 3 H / 1 BB / 0 RBI / 2 K's
  6. Andrew Bailey: Does he enter either game before the ninth? Also... IP/H/K [1 point each; 4 total] Didn't pitch, so... No - 0 / 0 / 0
  7. So Miguel Cabrera is also kind of good. As of Tuesday morning, he is tied for 3rd in the AL with a .354 batting average, 1st with 36 RBIs, tied for 1st with 14 doubles, and 4th with 51 hits. Predict his PA/H/XBH/RBI [1 point each; 4 total] 9 PA / 2 H / 1 XBH / 2 RBI
  8. The pride of Encinal Pasco High School starts Thursday for the Tigers. Predict D-Train's Jeremy Bonderman's K/H/HR's allowed (Thanks for changing your rotation after I wrote this, Jim) [1 point each; 3 total] 8 K's / 3 H / 0 HR
  9. Which bullpen pitches more innings? Gives up more hits? More Ks? [1 point each; 3 total] More IP: A's (8 vs. 3) / More H: A's (9 vs. 2) / More K's: A's (8 vs. 4)
  10. You thought I forgot. Series outcome (two games) [3 points] Tigers sweep

Procedural note: due to question 4 (and I work swings) the answers won't be up till late Thursday night.
