2014 W-L Contest Reminder

Opening Day is only two days away, so here's a reminder to enter this year's Red Sox W-L Contest.

Correctly guess Boston's 2014 regular season record and win a few prizes, including a copy of Don't Let Us Win Tonight, autographed by both authors.

Contest entries must be emailed to me and include the following two items:

1. Predicted 2014 W-L record
2. Tiebreaker: Xander Bogaerts's OPS (OBP+SLG)

W-L guesses must be exact. Tiebreaker winner will be the closest guess, either over or under.

Slightly Extended Deadline: Monday, March 31, 9:00 AM.

Last year's contest was easy.

I was dead wrong, of course, but it was easy to guess that they simply had to do better without Bobby V, but they couldn't possibly do all that much better. I reverted to the mean, split the difference, sat my habitual gloom down at the negotiation table with the hope-springs-eternal optimism of spring, and--voila!-- out popped the numbers.

This year? I have no frippin ghost of a clue what this team will do.
