GOG 2012 #9 @ Boston (Answers Posted)

[Due to the late posting of the GOG, I avoided questions that depend heavily on tonight's game. Late entries will be accepted, up to the end of the fifth inning. If you miss it, well, point totals will be low.]

  • The Questions

    1. Series Outcome. 3 Games. [3 points] A's, 2-1

    2. Homerun Question. Welcome to the Monster. Do the two teams hit More then, Fewer than, or Exactly 9 HRs together in the series? [3 points] Fewer than 9 HRs (5 - Reddick, Ortiz 2, Aviles, McDonald)

    3. Starting Pitcher Question. Jarrod Parker had a solid debut last week. Guess: IP / H / BB / K. [2 points each, 8 total] 6.2 IP / 4 H / 2 BB / 4 K

    4. Someone interesting from the Other Team. Ryan Sweeney is apparently making the most of his opposite field skills, to the tune of a League-leading 11 doubles, a slugging percentage of .567 and an OPS of .962. What are his PA / H / 2Bs? [2 points each, 6 total] 7 PA / 1 H / 1 2B

    5. An Athletic on Fire or Not. Brandon Inge is reportedly starting Monday night's game. Does he start Tuesday? Wednesday? [1 point each, 2 total] Yes, Starts on Tuesday / Yes, on Wednesday

    6. Some interesting Statistic or Comparative Metric. The Rangers, Yankees, and Red Sox are at 120, 118, and 116 runs scored, respectively. What is the order of the three teams at the end of their games on Wednesday? [1 point for each correct, 3 total] High to Low - Rangers (136), Red Sox (132), Yankees (121)

    7. Obligatory WPA. Who has the Highest and Lowest single game WPA for each Team. Position players and pitchers are allowed. For 1 additional point each, guess the WPA within .050. The additional points only kick in if you choose the correct player! [2 points each, then 2 pts. additional, 16 possible] A’s, McCarthy (.310) & Milone (-.349) / Sox, Middlebrooks (.162) & Doubront (-.210)

    A’s, McCarthy = .260 to .360 / Milone = -.299 to -.399 / Middlebrooks .112 to .212 / Doubront -.160 to -.260

    (Possible points = 41.)

    Answers must be posted by the end of the Fifth Inning, Game 1, Monday night (time variable).
