Yep, you know what time it is. Time to go to the Cell, home of Hawk Harrelson.
4 game series. Note that Jake Peavy is probably missing his start on Sunday. And that if that's the case, the A's face 4 LHP.
1- Series Outcome: 4 games, 4 points.
2- So, as I'm writing this, closer-guy Addison Reed just blew a 5 run lead to the Seattle Mariners in the 14th inning. What is the largest lead that gets blown during or after the 7th inning? (3 points) (If the score is 5-0 Sox, and after the inning its 6-5 A's or 5-5 A's, the Sox blew a 5 run lead. Guess 0 if you think no leads are lost after the 7th inning). Name one pitcher that pitches for either team during the inning which the biggest lead is blown. You get 2 guesses. (3 points)
3- WPA Starz/Goatz: name the position players with the highest and lowest WPAs per game for both teams. You should have 8 A's and 8 Sox names listed. IF you think someone will have the highest/lowest WPA in two games, you have to list them twice--no double-counting. (2 points each).
4- Game score: Order the 8 SP from highest to lowest game score. If a SP is scratched, their replacement acts as straight substitute. ( 2 points each)
5- Over/Under/Tie time! (3 points each)
a) 5 combined successful stolen bases by both teams in the series.
b) 3 successful caught stealings by both teams combined
c) 2 Nate Freiman extra base hits in the series
d) 1 starting pitcher, from either team, exiting the game without completing four innings (for any reason)
e) 2 John Jaso pinch hitting appearances
