GOG #22 vs. CWS

The Questions

 

1. Series outcome (3 games) [3 points]

2. Starz and Goatz: High roller edition. Name as many players as you want (either team) who will have a positive cumulative WPA for the series. You can name as few or as many players as you like, but here's the catch: for every correct guess, you get 2 points. If you guess ANY player that gets a negative WPA, you get 0 points for this question. If a player doesn't play in the series, or ends up with a WPA of zero, it doesn't count for or against you. [Theoretically 100 points; more likely 4-6]


3. If the A's are ever going to break out of their funk, now's the time. All three of the Royals' starters have losing records and 4+ ERAs, with two over 5. How many RBIs, walks, and XBH for the A's in the series? (vs both starters and bullpen) Name any Athletic that hits a home run(None is OK). [2 points each; 8 total]


4. The Royals just called up Mike Moustakas from Omaha. He sports a .300 BA in 10 AB coming into the series. Is his batting average at the end of the series above or below the .287 he was hitting for the Storm Chasers this year? [1 point] Does he commit an error? [1 point] Also: PA/H/BB. [2 points each; 8 total]


5. So apparently Cliff Pennington is our new second-in-command. How many hits, walks, and home runs for Cliff? (Any position in the lineup OK). [2 point each; 6 total]


6. Thursday. Day game. Cough, cough... What's the attendance? What is the game time temperature as reported by the 1 PM-ish weather observation at the Oakland Airport as reported here. Give yourself 1 bonus point if you attend Thursday's game (BE HONEST). [Attendance: +/-200 = 5 points; +/-500 = 4 points; +/-1000 = 2 points. Temperature - 1 point; 7 total]

7. According to SuSlu's twitter, a birthday monster was spotted taking down fly balls during BP at U.S. Cellular on Sunday. Does Hideki play anywhere in the field during Wednesday's or Thursday's game? (yes or no only) [1 point]


8. The good news: During the Sox series, the A's only hit into one double play, while Chicago hit into six. The bad news: you need to get runners on in the first place to hit into a double play. How many does each team hit into? [2 points each; 4 total]
