GOG #42 @ Tampa

Baseball Reference

Fangraphs

1. Series outcome (4 games) [4 points]

2. After a lights out start Tuesday, can Brett Anderson come back to make it two in a row? Guess IP/H/BB/K for his start Monday. Does Brett get a Win, Loss, or ND? [ 3/ 3/ 3/ 3/ 2 points]

3. The Indians have pretty much fallen off a cliff in recent weeks, and they're not being helped by their rotation. Three of the four Tribe pitchers in this series have losing records and ERAs on the wrong side of four. For the Indians' starting pitchers combined, guess over/under/tie for the following: 33 hits / 18 earned runs / 3 wild pitches / 17 walks / 20 strikeouts / 400 pitches thrown [ 2 points each; 6 points for a correct 'tie']

4. How clutch are you? For each game, guess one player from each team with a pLI over 1.6. You don't need to specify which game they do it in, but if you want multiple points for the same player, you need to guess them more than once. None is a possible answer. [3 points each]

5. One team can start looking ahead to the playoffs. The Sacramento Rivercats' magic number currently stands at four as of Sunday @ 7pm, and their 81-54 record leads the Pacific Coast League. (Compare that .600 win percentage to the MLB, and the Cats would be second behind only the Washington Nationals) Do the Cats clinch by Thursday? What is their magic number after Thursday's games? [ 1/ 2]

6. So it's no secret that Coco Crisp is on a tear recently. The former Indian is batting .379 with 11 hits and 7 RBIs in the past week. How many H / RBI / BB / SB for Coco? [2 points each]

7. Random s---. Name two players (either team) who: [2 points for each correct player]

a. Get a hit in every game

b. Walk in at least 3 different games

c. Hit more than one home run in the series

d. Strike out at least twice in at least 3 different games

e. Record a save, and whose name is not Grant Balfour or Chris Perez

Each answer could include two A's, two Indians, a combination, none/none (if correct this'll get you 4 points; if one player does it you get 2), or none/player (if you think only one person will do it; if no one does it, you still get 2 points)

Answers

1. A's Sweep! [4]

2. 7 IP / 2 H / 2 BB / 5 K / Win [ 3/ 3/ 3/ 3/ 2]

3. Under (29 H) / Over (19 ER) / Under (0 WP) / Under (6 BB) / Under (16 K's) / Under (365 pitches) [2 points each]

5. Yes/0 [1/2 points]

6. 4 H / 1 RBI / 1 BB / 1 SB [2 points each]

7. Each answer could include two A's, two Indians, a combination, none/none (if correct this'll get you 4 points; if one player does it you get 2), or none/player (if you think only one person will do it; if no one does it, you still get 2 points)
