Congrats to Mr. Dave, our Week 3 winner. He (with a name like that, I'm assuming he's male) wins a 6-month Play Index subscription.

  1. Andy-

    Is it possible to post the entries into this post somehow? I like to see how I did in a given week and it's a bit of a pain to go back over several page of entries to find the original post. Or if it could be linked to, that would be great.

    Thanks.

  2. Click on the 'stat challenge' post category and you can get to the post with the entries quite easily.

  3. Sweet! :)

  4. Oh, gotcha! Thanks. Posts here are tagged differently than other blogs I read, but I think I can figure that out. Muchos gracias.

  5. Congrats, Mr. Dave! I'm going to keep trying until I too hit it right -- which, since I have yet to reach the top ten, might just take a while.

  6. Frank - this was my first appearance in the Top 10. And considering I'm a Royals fan, who knew I'd be good with predicting Nats games?

  7. DannyKugler Says:

    Nice job Mr. Dave & all the top finishers.

  8. Man, this was a tough week! The Strasburg game score question was incredibly interesting and ridiculously hard to predict. Congrats to the top finishers.
