GOG 2014 #2 - 4 Game Set v. Mariners - ANSWERS POSTED




We are about to move on to the next series, though so far only one game has been played. Let's hope the A's-Indians can get both games in today/tonight and then welcome the Mariners to town for 4.

Please remember to score your GOG for the first series once it is over.

Note: Everyone will just get 0 on the series outcome, since there ended up only being 3 games. For number 3, just take the one starter that didn't start out of your spot and count accordingly.
