Prognostikeggers: All-Star Game Special

Will Tyler Thornburg be a future all-star for the Brewers? Only time will tell.

(If you're looking for an explanation of Prognostikeggers, check out the Full Rules for Prognostikeggers.)

Week 5 is in the books.

In Week 5, texwestern used a five-point day on Tuesday to get to the lead, and then managed to hold on to that lead for the rest of the week for the win.  He became the seventh different person to win a week in the competition.  Hitting two bonus predictions helped him get the win.  In the meantime, spsmartguy started strong with a five-point day on Monday and entered Saturday tied, but could not get a point on Sunday and ended up in second place

Meanwhile, in the overall standings, we have had the first change at the top of the standings in a while.  After MrLeam led for about a month at the top of the standings, he finally fell out of first place this week.  Dulzy assumed the top spot after tying with spsmartguy for the lead in week 5.  MrLeam isn't far behind, just one point down in second place.

It's the all-star break, and Prognostikeggers will have a special series for it.  After the all-star break, I'm taking a page from fantasy baseball for Week 6.  It will take place for the Brewers' entire west coast trip, July 14-24, to cover the rest of this week and all of next week.

Here are the special predictions for the next few days.

Home Run Derby Prediction:  For the home run derby, you will make two predictions.  All you need to predict is how many home runs that Prince Fielder will hit, and how many home runs Rickie Weeks will hit. You can earn up to three points for each prediction.  Here's the breakdown.

If you are within five of the correct HR total, you get one point.
If you are within two of the correct HR total, you get two points.
If you predict the exact number of HR, you get three points.

All-Star Game Predictions:  For the all-star game, predict the final line score for each team in the game (runs, hits, and errors).  You will get one point for each part of the line score that you get correct, with a total of six possible points.

Here are the top five in the final standings of week 5.
