Commence showdown for best record in the AL!
1- Series outcome. 3 game series. You know the drill (3 points)
2- SONNY GRAY! Predict IP, H, BB, and K for Gray this weekend (2 points each). Who hits the first RBI off Gray this weekend? (nobody is an acceptable answer) (3 points, You're allowed up to 2 player guesses. If you guess "nobody" you're not allowed to guess a second player).
3- Slow guy base stealing. When visiting David Ortiz's Fangraphs page, I noticed that Ortiz had 3 stolen bases this year. Three! Obscure facts aside, does anybody from either team with fewer than 5 SB on the season get a stolen base while playing 1B or DH? (2 points) (so that means Coco DH SB don't count) If so, who? (3 points)
4- Alumni Weekend, WPA style. Off the top of my head, Reddick, Gomes, Coco, Drew, Bailey, Breslow, and Moss have all played for both teams. Who, among the alums, posts the one highest single game WPA, any game? (3 points) Now, pick any 4 OF THE ALUMS and order them from highest to lowest series WPA (3 points each).
EDIT PLEASE READ (thanks paris for catching this): For #4, I didn't initially clarify the question properly when first writing the GOG to state only alums. If you ALREADY guessed, I'll handscore your #4 (so, buddahead9, Scotty J, and longtimeasfan- don't worry about changing your answers).
If you have NOT already guessed, please limit your guesses on both parts of #4 to the alumni players only.
5- Randomosity- Over/Under/Tie (2 points apiece. 3 for any correct tie guess).
a) Four XBH by Cubans (Cespedes and Iglesias)
b) Three caught stealings, both teams combined
c) 2 walks issued by John Lackey
