My picks are in red: "87 wins. WC. ... Then they get hot for 3 weeks."

If your entry is missing or has a typo, re-send your original email to me.

Right now, the prize is a copy of Ron Kaplan's "501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read Before They Die" (University of Nebraska Press), which I reviewed here. There might be a better prize announced this summer.

Dr. Jeff created some graphs to show the entries:

Gotta love Laura's optimism! But then she already has ready access to the prize, so why not guess optimistically!

I guess I am out of the mainstream on my guesses except for the Bradley PA guess. Like they say, hope for the best, but prepare for the worst!

I'll be at work during the game, but will be secretly checking the score when I can.

GO SOX!

My goal is always to guess the most wins!

If the super-special prize works out, I will miss having a shot at it. But the book... whatever. My philosophy now is "I'd rather be hopeful than right." :)

Note: The W-L winner has to be exact. The tiebreakers are the closest guesses, either higher or lower.

101 wins! Love it, Laura!

laura k said...

What the hell, eh?

Jere said...

Record over last 24 games will lead to the following winners, assuming Lackey's ERA doesn't skyrocket:

10-14: Zack P
11-13: Zack P
12-12: Jeffrey M(eier?)
13-11: Jeffrey M(eier?)
14-10: Chris S*
15-9: Chris S
16-8: Justin M
17-7: Justin M
18-6: Justin M
19-5 or better: Laura K
9-15 or worse: Winner will be last thing on my mind.

*This is what we're on pace for right now

Six games left.

6-0, 5-1, or 4-2: Justin M
3-3 or 2-4: Chris S
1-5 or 0-6: Jeffrey M

I took that into consideration based on the assumption Lackey's ERA stays somewhere near where it is now. Or are you saying if nobody gets it exactly right there's no winner?

laura k said...

Lackey's ERA is only a tiebreaker, if more than one person guesses the correct W-L record. If no one guesses W-L correctly, no one wins.

That's my understanding from past contests.
