Stat Challenge: Week 3

Posted by Andy on June 4, 2010

Welcome to the Washington Nationals edition of the Stat Challenge! With Stephen Strasburg scheduled to make his major-league debut, I could not resist basing a bunch of questions around him and his team.

Please refer to the official rules if you have any questions.

One change this week--if you cannot view the form below, I will accept entries posted in the comments. I am putting the questions there as well in case you can't see it. If you can see the form, please use that instead.

You can make your guesses using the Nationals' batting game logs and pitching game logs. The pitching splits will help too.

  1. If you cannot view the form above, you can enter the Stat Challenge by posting your answers in the comments below. Please do not copy and paste the entire question--just give the question NUMBER and your answer. You must provide a screen name and an email address (which will not be shared.)

    Question 1: What game score will Stephen Strasburg earn in his major league debut? I am referring to the Game Score stat for an individual starting pitcher performance, not the overall score of the game. If Strasburg does not make a major-league start during the period of this Stat Challenge or if the game is rained out or suspended, this question will be ignored in the rankings

    Question 2: How many total innings pitched, rounded down to the number of complete innings, will the Nationals starting pitchers pitch? I will add the total of IP by the starter of each game together and then round the final down. So if, for example, the total were 25 2/3 innings, the correct answer would be 25.

    Question 3: How many singles will all Nationals hitters hit?

    Question 4: How many total strikeouts will Nationals pitchers register in all relief appearances?

    Question 5: How many total runs will the Nationals score as a team?

  2. Andy, did my entry get there this time? {I told you I was computer-illiterate}

  3. Frank, it did, however you misunderstood question 1. I have added some clarifying text there, can you put in a new entry?
