Predictions Contest: OVER/UNDER Picks for 2014


 

So just how well will the Braves perform in 2014?  Maybe you can guess along with us via an Over/Under contest.  The prize?  Pretty much just bragging rights in a year-in-review post, but feel free to post your guesses in the comments section below.  The format is simple:  The question number followed by ‘over’ or ‘under’ (or group them as I did below).  The tie-breakers are all short answer.

 

The Questions

These are grouped as “Team-”, “Pitcher-”, and “Hitter-” related questions, with 3 tie-breakers (TB) thrown in at the end.  There are 27 total questions.  One point per successful answer.

 

My Own Guesses

This is tough, since I obviously picked the numbers with intent of being ReallyCloseToTheMark… or at least to make the question interesting.  So in MOST cases, I’m thinking “barely” over or under.  Here goes:

  • Team questions:  under, over, over, under, under, over, over, under
  • Pitcher questions: over, under, over, under, under, over, over, over
  • Hitter questions:  under, over, over, over, over, under, over, under
  • Tie-breakers:  McCann, Uggla, 2

Excepting post-season awards, all questions apply to regular-season games only.  Fangraphs.com will be use as the statistical source to resolve answers.  The answers strive to avoid ‘ties’, but just in case, both answers will be deemed correct.

      First draft of this was 3 weeks ago. It was… considerably different, let’s say.

    Mine seem conflicting but I expect hitting to get a bit better and our pitching to continue to fight injuries.
