Cool predictions are like cool plays: They look great when they work and foolish when they don't.
Prognostikeggers can be an interesting game. One day, five points is enough to win the day. The next, it's not even close. Some people learned this lesson this week with their predictions.
On Saturday, we had something that can be best described as unusual. Despite a low number of predictions, three people hit their line scores perfectly. All of them finished with high point totals for the day, more than enough to win on Friday or Sunday. However, since it came in on Saturday, only one could win. That day went to drugstorecowboy9, though dvtpz also used his big day to put him in position to win the week.
It's all just the normal days of Prognostikeggers. Want to get in on the fun? You can join in at any time. Just make sure to read the rules first. Week 11 starts with a series against the Blue Jays. Due to several injuries in the last week for the Blue Jays, there's two pitchers still TBA in this series. Keep that in mind as you make your picks.

Extra Prediction for the Series: Predict the total number of pitches thrown by both teams in the game. This is only official pitches, not warmup pitches, pickoff throws, or anything else that doesn't count towards a pitcher's official pitch count. If you are within 20 pitches of the actual total, you will get one point. If you are within 10 pitches, you will get two points. If you guess the number of pitches exactly, you will get four points.
