The Thursday Thinker: Pondering Plunkings

Everyone loves some alliteration, right?

This week's edition of the Thinker is focused on hit by pitches. Twenty-five Brewer batters have been hit by a pitch at least 18 times in their careers. How many can you name in eight minutes?

To make it a little easier on you, I've given you the number of HBP, and more importantly, the seasons the player spent as a Brewer. With those hints, I wouldn't be surprised to see someone knock down as many as 21 or 22 of them. Even if you've only followed baseball for a few seasons, there's probably eight or so of them you'll immediately know and more you can guess from the hints.

The same rules as last week apply here: Post your score in the comments, but don't comment on any specific answer until after 6 pm, so everyone gets a chance to try it out without having it spoiled for them. And, of course, there's no reason to cheat here, because there's no prizes. If you're only interested in prizes, perhaps you should try this contest instead.

So, have fun, and don't forget to post your score in the comments!
