Prognostikeggers Week 6: Brewers @ Diamondbacks

New, 119 comments

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

We're going to try an experiment for this series.  Kyle suggested this a little while ago, so I'm going to give it a try.

Instead of the standard posts in the comments section, I've set up some Google Document Forms for you to use.  Just click on the appropriate link to take you to the form, and enter your predictions.  You may also post your predictions in the comments, but understand that just posting your predictions in the comments section will not work for this series.

This is just in testing right now, I am trying it for this series and the Giants series.  If it works well, I will keep this method going.  If not, we'll go back to the previous method.  For you mobile posters, I did try accessing the forms from my Droid Incredible phone, and was able to access it and enter all of the data.  Let me know if you have any problems posting in the forms.  For now, only if you have a problem, you may post in the comments your predictions and mention your problem, and I will add them to the form.

Also understand that this is all on the honor system.  Since I can't link your BCB user name automatically, it is possible to fake entries.  I will see a time stamp on your post to confirm your prediction is in before the game starts.  Please treat this respectfully, it will help me out with results each night and I would like to be able to continue using it.  If you post your predictions in the comments for each day, you can confirm your predictions.  This may end up becoming a requirement at some point, but I would rather keep it simple for you.  I hope you will continue to post your predictions in the comments each day, it will keep things interesting.

Extra Prediction for the Series:  I'm running out of ideas for the extras on the road.  I'm going to reuse another prediction and use the game time prediction again.  It seems like an appropriate time considering the Brewers are playing late games and some long games.

For this series, predict the official game time of each game.  Here is how scoring will work for this week.  (Edit: This is the actual length of the game, not when it starts.)

If you are within 10 minutes of the actual time (high or low), you will receive 1 point.
If you hit the official game time exactly, you will receive 2 points.
