Predict Parker/Jimenez/Tie for : a) More IP, Ubaldo b) More BB, Ubaldo c) More XBH Parker d) More ER, Parker e) More K Ubaldo (2 points each, 10 possible). Is either pitcher pulled before the 3rd inning (as in DOES NOT complete 3.0 innings)? No pitcher pulled before 3rd (1 point; just answer y/n, dont need to correctly identify)

5- A WPA Starz Game: Name the A's and Indians position player who puts up the highest single-game WPA for each of the 4 games. You'll have 8 answers total. You have to name a player twice if you think he'll get the highest single game in 2 games. (2 points each, 8 possible).

(NOTE: If you had Rosales on there twice, you can double count him for game 3 AND 4, since Angel Hernandez happened.)
Indians: Cabrera, TIE Santana/Aviles (either one will get you points, no double counting!), Santana, Kipnis
