I would like to welcome everyone to GOG #8, this is my GOGing debut, I realize there may be some sort of initiation ritual.....I'll get the blindfold.
1) SERIES OUTCOME. Three games in Baltimore. (2 points)
2) TWITTER ME THIS. Does McCarthy pick up his first win? Guess his IP/H/K/ER (1/2/2/2/2)
3) 2nd BEST? The A's are tied for second in the AL West, and are currently dating Miss .500, do we end the weekend in 2nd place? Do we continue to woo Miss .500 (winning record)? (2/2)
4) OVER/UNDER/TIE. The A's batting line for the season (AVG/OBP/SLG) is .205/.274/.318; do we leave the series over/under/tied in each category? How about the Orioles, .242/.301/.431. (2pts/each)
5) WE'RE #1.....in stolen bases (AL) with 18! For the A's, how many stolen bases for the weekend? Who swipes a bag? Are we #1 in MLB in steals at the end of the weekend (Marlins with 19)? (3/+1 correct player, -1 wrong player/2)
6) KILA MONSTA. How many starts for Kila (checks spelling on last name) Ka'aihue, guess his batting line for the series PA/H/K/RBI (2 each)
7) ALLERGIC TO FIELDING. The A's and Orioles are ranked 13th and 14th in errors in the AL. How many total errors for each game? (2/2/2)
Extra: There's a famous saying in Latin, "No me gusta Slegna" *Disclaimer, I don't know Latin* award yourself 3pts if the Slegna lose their series to the Indians.
*All stats are as of 4/26, Baltimore's batting line was written before Thursday's game
*#3, #5....tied for second counts, tied for league lead in SB counts
