  • Pinstripe Alley (becaue the Yankees fangraphs page is too depressing to look at)

  • The Questions

    1. Series Outcome. 4 games against the Bronx Bumblers. Take an extra 2 points if you call the A's to win the series (3-1 or 4-0) and you are correct. [4 points, +2 points for A's win, 6 possible]

    2. Homerun Question. Early in the year, the Yankees had this thing going where 50% of their Runs came off of HRs. Well, now the A's are on that track over the last three series. Do Homeruns make up 50% or more of the A's Runs for the series? How about for the Yankees? Guess total HRs for each team. [1 point each, then 3 points each, 8 total]

    3. Starting Pitcher Question. Pick 'em, best and worst for each team, Game Score-wise. [2 points each, 8 total]

    4. Something interesting from the Other Team. Ok, so the Yankees have this streak: 42 games, 3 runs or more, only the second team to do this in the live ball era. Does the streak end? In which game? (It is ok to say "No" it doesn't end but also guess which game it does end.) Do the A's get 3 Runs or more in all four games, yes or no? [1 point, then 2 pts. each, 5 total]

    5. Underproduction 7-8-9. Inge, Norris, Hicks, Pennington, Suzuki - these guys all have good reasons, and in most cases the talent or luck, to get out of their doldrums. And if the A's are gonna compete, they need some 7-8-9 production. Guess the total number of H / XBH / HRs / R / RBIs / BB from the starters in these three lineup spots. [3 points each, 18 total]

    6. In the 'Pen. The A's bullpen is such a pleasant surprise. Name an A's reliever that gets a Shutdown and one who gets a Meltdown ("None" is acceptable for any of these). Name a reliever that allows an Inherited Run to score (again, "None" is ok). [2 points each, 6 total]

    7. More Homerun Fun, High Roller Style. Name as many players as you wish who hit a Homerun! 2 points for each corrrect guess, but if you miss 1, you don't score any points at all. [2 points each, 100 possible, I guess]

    (Possible points = 51 + ??)
