Everyone Loves A Contest #22: 2018 Red Sox W-L

With Opening Day less than two weeks away (March 29), it's time for this year's Red Sox W-L Contest!

The person that correctly guesses Boston's 2018 regular season W-L record will win a (used, but very nice) copy of Bill James's This Time Let's Not Eat The Bones: Bill James Without The Numbers (Villard Books, 1989). (Almost 500 pages of James discussing teams, players, and various ideas from 30-35 years ago! How can you resist?)

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

1. Predicted 2018 W-L record
2. Tiebreaker: Total Bases by J.D. Martinez

As always, the winning W-L prediction must be exact. The tiebreaker winner, if needed, will be the closest guess, either over or under.

Deadline: Wednesday, March 28, 11:59 PM.

Good luck to everyone ... and fuck the Yankees.

Please: For many years, there has been only one way to submit JoS contest predictions. I believe I have always made those instructions clear and easy to understand. (And they have never changed over the years.) If you would like to enter this year's W-L contest, please carefully read the part about how to submit your guesses. Then submit them in that specific (though quite common) way. If you fail to do so in the way I have instructed, your predictions will not be entered. Thank you.

Even with this, there's an attempted entry waiting in moderation. Amazing.

I posted my plea because of that comment.
