Stat Challenge: Win my copy of The Bullpen Gospels

Posted by Andy on August 25, 2010

The Stat Challenge returns!

The winning entrant will receive my copy of Dirk Hayhurst's The Bullpen Gospels. I previously reviewed the book right here.

To enter, post a comment below with what you think the Game Score will be for the Phillies' starting pitcher on Friday August 27th. Currently Roy Oswalt is the scheduled starter. As a tiebreaker, also guess the Game Score for the Padres' starting pitcher in that same game, currently scheduled to be Mat Latos.

If there are identical posts with the same two guesses, the earliest post is the one that counts. Only one entry per contestant. Entries must be in before the first pitch of the game.

In the event of something funky like a rainout, I'll find some fair way to handle the content (probably a do-over.)

Stat Challenge goes on the DL

Posted by Andy on June 25, 2010

The Stat Challenge has gone on the disabled list, due mostly to lack of participation. I will likely bring it back in some form in the coming weeks. Week 5 winners will be posted next week.

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.

Correction to Week 1 Stat Challenge results

Posted by Andy on June 2, 2010

Folks, 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 (Arom24) although it did change the rankings a little bit.

My apologies for the mistakes--like many of you probably, I was very busy on the holiday and was a bit too rushed when I sat down to make the calculations.

Here are the final results for week 1:

1	Arom24	        13	10
2T	Josh W   	17	7
2T	Johnny Twisto	17	7
4T	elkboy	        20	4
4T	djsperr	        20	4
6	Omer_h	        21	4
7	dgreds	        22	2
8T	jacket1515	25	2
8T	TPRaider	25	2
8T	Eric F	        25	2

Here's what changed:

  • djsperr moved down 2 spots, but got 4 points either way
  • Omer_h moved down 1 spot but similarly got 4 points either way
  • dgreds didn't make the top 10 last time but now appears and gets 2 points
  • jacket1515 moved down 1 spot but still gets 2 points
  • same for TPRaider
  • Eric F now makes the list and gets 2 points
  • the sad news is for FrankM and KomA himself, who both fall off the top and lose 10 points.

Thanks to KomA for helping me to get it right, even knowing that it would cost him a spot in the top 10.
