2011 GOG #47 - It's still hot and sweaty in Texas

Probables

Do your homework

 

1. Series outcome [3 points]

2. Starz and Goatz: Name the two position players on each team who have the highest cumulative WPAs for the series [2 points each; 8 total]

3. How many home runs does each team have in the series? Do both teams combined score over or under (or tie) 40 runs in the series? [2 points for the teams, 1 for the runs; 5 total]

4. Former Ranger Brandon McCarthy gets the ball Friday night after throwing complete games his past two outings. Predict his IP/H/BB/K [2 points each; 8 total]

5. Perusing Baseball Reference, one stat I didn't expect the Rangers to be last in is strikeouts. Texas batters have struck out 846 times this season, about 100 less than the A's and 125 less than the AL average. Name a player from each team who strikes out at least 3 times in the series (none is OK) [2 points each; 4 total]

6. Michael Young .333 average this year is currently 2nd, one point ahead of Miguel Cabrera. Predict Young's AB/H/BB for the series. Who has a higher AVG after Sunday: Young or Cabrera? [2 points each, then 1 point; 7 total]

7. Let's talk playoffs. Both the Rivercats and Ports are in the postseason. Sacramento is currently down 2-0 to the Aces, and are heading back home for game three of five, while Stockton is tied in a best of three with the Nuts. Do the Ports advance Friday night? What is the final outcome of the Rivercats series? (i.e.: Sac wins 3 games to 2, Reno wins 3 games to 0, etc...) [1 point for the Ports; 2 points for the Rivercats; 3 total]


First pitch Friday @ 5:05 PDT
