Prognostikeggers Week 7: Cubs @ Brewers

New, 33 comments

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

Forty-four games.

That's how many games that Prognostikeggers has been around for, along with two specials for the all-star break.  It really makes you think about what has gone on so far.  However, we haven't made it through even half of the season yet.  At the end of this week, we will be right around that point.

Back in the extended week six, icecreamman averaged two points over the last six games to take the week six win and become the first person to win two different weeks.  However, he lost his share of the overall lead as Dulzy put up eight points in the last three games to retake sole possession of the overall lead.  Meanwhile, MrLeam continues to lose steam slowly and is now four points away from the lead.  Overall, there is a gap starting to widen in the overall standings.  Ten points now separate first and sixth place.  It's still close enough to overcome, but opportunities are starting to decrease.

Week seven brings us back to Miller Park after two weeks away.  Nine games in a row at home, and it should be time for some higher scoring to occur, both from the Brewers offense and from your own predictions.  Are you ready to step up?  Will someone new have a good week?  Will a current contender solidify a lead?  Those questions will be answered soon.

You will notice a change in the comments starting with this series.  Since predictions are entered by form now, the daily comments sections are a bit unnecessary.  Let's try it without them for now.  Results will still be posted in the comments each day, just not under a specific comment now.

Also, I'm considering a possible change to the scoring on attendance.  When a game is sold out, making the attendance prediction has become incredibly easy, especially for teams who sell out games regularly.  The change will lower the attendance threshold for sold out games.  If the ESPN box score shows the attendance of the game as at 100% or more of ballpark capacity, the threshold for a correct attendance prediction would drop from 1000 to 500.  The reason for this change is because in any sold out game, typically 50 to 75% of people will win a point.  I hate to just give out easy points, and that is becoming too easy.  Are you really gaining anything if everyone gets a point?  For this week, nothing will change, the threshold for each game will remain at 1000.  I just want to propose it before I implement anything.

Extra Prediction for the Series:  It's been two weeks since the Brewers' last home game.  Do you remember how to predict the winner of the Sausage Race?  You will need to remember that to make your extra prediction for this series.  Bratwurst, Polish, Italian, Hot Dog, or Chorizo?
