Thread: Yankees-Red Sox Scoring Points Contest

  1. #1

    Yankees-Red Sox Scoring Points Contest

    Alright, here’s a little game I figured we could do to help make the rest of the Yankee-Red Sox games this season a little more interesting (Not to say they wouldn’t be anyways). This will be a total runs scored contest for the remaining 13 games. Simple enough, tell me a guess as to how many points you think the Yankees and Red Sox will score combined for the remainder of their matchups[regular season].

    So, if in one game, you think the Sox will win 8-6, that’s 14; so like that for all of the 13 games (so if you think the sox will win every game 10-5, then your guess would be 195). Whoever has the closest guess as to the actual number will win. What will you win you ask? The winner will receive a framed autograph display of a Red Sox legend. It will be setup with a matted autograph and a picture or card. I don’t know who, I’ll decide which one to award later, but it will look like this one (I made that one when I was 15, so it will look better than this):

    That is of Bobby Doerr, so it’s a player that even a Yankee fan can respect so this is also a must-do by all Yankee and baseball fans alike.
    Now this isn’t like the Price is Right, there’s no penalty for going over, so picking 1 isn’t a good idea unless your expecting a lot of Ties.
    The season series remains as such(Incase you want to base your scores on venue and time of season):
    Tuesday, June 9th @ Boston
    Wednesday, June 10th @ Boston
    Thursday, June 11th @ Boston
    Thursday, August 6th @ New York
    Friday, August 7th @ New York
    Saturday, August 8th @ New York
    Sunday, August 9th @ New York
    Friday, August 21st @ Boston
    Saturday, August 22nd @ Boston
    Sunday, August 23rd @ Boston
    Friday, September 25th @ New York
    Saturday, September 26th @ New York
    Sunday, September 27th @ New York

    So there’s the game breakup. I’ll need all the picks submitted, of course, before the first game, which is 23 days from today, so you all have some time to get this in! I’m going to say you need to have 150 posts to qualify just so no one who just joined can spam win-it.
    If there is a tie(two people are equal distance off from number but still closest) then well setup a postseason tie breaker, but we’ll worry about that if it happens.
    I think I explained it well enough, but if you have any questions, ask them before you submit your pick because I’ll be keeping my own notes of them and you can’t change it once you pick it!

    Just 150 by the time it starts, which would be June 9th, so you got a month to get there.
