A long, long while ago I used to run a contest on a couple of message boards called YNOT. (Full disclosure, the Montreal Expos board on what was then Baseballboards.net and now doesn’t exist did it first, but they let me borrow it.) I did it on the blog a few times as well, though I’m not sure I’ve done it since we moved over to the Conclave. Basically, the gist is that you answer questions pertaining to an event, usually a series but for this exercise we’re looking the second half. I summarize the responses, grade them when everything is over, and publish the results.
With a potentially tumultuous second half coming up, I thought I’d put this out there and see who might be interested in giving it a spin. I may try to hunt up some sort of small prize for the winner–don’t know what it’d be, but it wouldn’t be anything overwhelming, so don’t enter on that account–but if nothing else you could have bragging rights. The questions are grouped into ones worth two points, ones worth four points, and ones worth five points, with a tiebreaker at the end. 70 points total because, well, seemed appropriate.
You can either fill out the following embedded form (keep scrolling, because there are about 21 questions plus the tiebreaker) or you can follow this link to find it in another tab on your browser. Picks should be in before first pitch (give or take a few minutes, since we’re talking about a whole second half here) on Friday night. Hope you enjoy and good luck!
