The Questions (30 points possible)

1. Series outcome (4 games) [3 points] 3-1 A's

2. Now I get to use this question. The pride of Encinal High School starts Friday night for the Tigers. Predict D-Train's number of pitches +/-5, as well as his K/H/BB. [1 point each; 4 total] 107 pitches (102-112) / 5 K's / 9 H / 4 BB

3. Which team grounds into more double plays? Name any player that hits into a twin killing. [1 point for the first part, 3 for naming correct player; 4 total] Tie -- Jake Fox / Alex Avila / Kurt Suzuki X2 / Ryan Sweeney X2 / Carlos Guillen / Ramon Santiago X2 / Brandon Inge

4. Brett Anderson is finally coming off the DL to start Saturday. Predict his IP/H/ER/K [1 point each; 4 total] 5.2 IP / 3 H / 0 ER / 4 K's

5. Andrew Bailey vs. Jose Valverde: Who pitches more innings? Records more Ks?  Gives up more hits? [1 point each; 3 total] IP: Bailey K: Valverde H:Tie

6. Austin Jackson is sporting a shiny .335 batting average, good for 7th in the majors. Predict his AB/H/XBH/RBI [1 point each; 4 total] AB: 15 / H: 4 / XBH: 2 / RBI: 1

7. Rajai Davis has 18 stolen bases this year. The Tigers have 21. Who has more SB in the series: Raj, or the entire Tigers team combined? [2 points] Rajai (4-0!)

8. Ben Sheets seems to be slowly coming around. The A's have won three of his last four starts, and he's shaved two full points off his ERA in the past month. Said ERA is currently at 5.04. Is his ERA over or under 5.00 after his start Friday night? (If he shockingly hits 5.00 right on, consider it "over") [+1 if right, -1 if wrong] Under (4.91)

9. Adam Rosales, Kurt Suzuki, and Eric Patterson are currently tied for the team lead with four home runs each. When I think of power hitters, they are the first three that come to my mind. Does any one of them hit one out this series? No need to pick a specific player, just yes or no. [+1 if right, -1 if wrong] No

10. Mark Ellis is back. How many games does he play in? Also predict H/BB/K. [1 point each; 4 total] GP: 3 / H: 6 (3 Friday, 3 Saturday) / BB: 1 / K: 2
