GOG #25 vs. the Mets

The Questions

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

2. Starz and Goatz: Taking the hill. Which starting pitchers will have the best and worst single game WPA? (one answer for each) [2 points each; 4 total]

3. Speaking of starters, the A's are lucky enough to face Cole Hamels and Roy Halladay for the weekend games. Shockingly enough, they are both 9-3 with a 2.51 ERA. For each, answer: both, neither, Hamels, or Halladay [2 points each; 8  total]:

            Gives up 6 or more hits

            A's hit a home run against

            Walks 3 or more

            Has the better ERA after the series (Hamels, Halladay, or still tied)

4. So I went to the Rivercats/Padres game Wednesday and was wondering where Chris Carter was. Found him! Predict Carter's AB/H/XBH/BB [2 points each; 8 total]

5. The pitchers get to borrow someone else's bat and dig in. For the A's combined pitching staff, predict (while batting): H/K/BB/RBI. How many times do A's pitchers strike out looking? [2 points each; 10 total]

6. Ryan Howard is still a stud. He is 2nd in the NL in RBIs, and leads the Phillies in doubles and home runs. So how many RBIs, doubles, and home runs for the big first baseman? [2 points each; 6 total]

7. Obligatory gold jersey question: How many games do the A's wear gold? How many games do they win in the gold jerseys? [1 point each; 2 total]
