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.
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.
