  1. "Each week, the people with the 10 lowest total scores earn points as follows: 1st place 10 points, 2nd place 8 points, 3rd place 6 points, 4th-6th place 4 points, 7th-10th place 2 points. In the case of ties, points will be averaged. For example if 2 people tie for first place, they will each receive 9 points."

    Shouldn't Josh and Johnny have 7 points each?

  2. Yes

  3. even if i will loose my 2 points i think the result is not correct.

    Why does the Padres game from 2010-05-23 count, since the games from 24th to 30th are in?
    so they got 10 XBH

    I got 103 solo homers by all of MLB

  4. and btw

    Andy shouldn´t abeboparebop and me not only get 1 point since we share 10th place, which means sharing 2 points between 2 contenders?

    what a luck that the winner is always Arom24, regardless which result counts.

    Congrats Arom24

  5. I will review all the results and repost tomorrow. Admittedly I was hurried this morning.

  6. Thanks guys! I was definitely surprised to have won considering the massive number of entries for last week

  7. [...] reader KomA correctly pointed out a couple of errors I made when determining the results of the Week 1 Stat Challenge. Luckily it didn't affect who won [...]
