So, humanoid has missed the last 3 GOGs but at least remembered to put up the new GOG.
also remember, this is a 4 (!!!) game set.
1- series outcome (4 points). Double for correctly called sweep on either side.
2- single game WPAs. Name the player, from each team, who has the highest single game WPA all series. Correct answer based on one guess (per team) is worth 5 points, based on 2 guesses is 3 points, and 3 guesses is 1 point. (10 points possible).
Now... turn around and do the same for the lowest single game WPAs. (10 points possible).
3- Holy Splits! Using 2012 numbers and sorting by wRC+, the A's currently employ the 6th (Moss) and 8th (Jaso) best hitters v. RHP and the 16th (Wells) best hitter against LHP. How many earned runs are charged to right handed Orioles pitchers this series? How many earned runs are charged to left handed Orioles pitchers? (3 pts each if exact, 1 if +/- 1)
4- Run Differentials! One big knock on the 2012 Orioles was that their run differential was terrible even if they won 93 games. Guess the total run differential for this series (how many more runs does the team scoring more runs score than the team scoring fewer runs in total this series. So if the A's score 10 runs this series and Orioles score 8 this series the answer is 2). (5 points if exact, 3 points if +/- 1).
5- Chris Davis: Apparently he's hitting everything right now. Predict his PA/H/XBH/K (2 points each, 8 possible).
6- Obligatory Friendly Ghost Question: Does Casper Wells start a game this series? (1 point) Predict his PA/H/XBH/K on the series (2 points each)
7- Over/Under/Ties (2 points each)
a) 10 HR hit this series
b) Average of 8 combined runs per game
c) 1 A's starter completes 7 innings
d) 1 game where either bullpen is in the game before the fourth inning.
