Prognostikeggers Playoffs - Semifinals: Brewers @ Reds

New, 11 comments

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

We're getting close to the end.  The last road trip of the regular season begins today.

Very light on the scoring during the Rockies series.  No one scored more than three points, meaning that everything is still up for grabs during the weekend series against the Reds.  Four people are still fighting for two spots in the Prognostikeggers finals.  Who will move on?  Will we have a match of the top two seeds?  Will the tough double-digit seeds pull the upsets?  We'll find out in three days.  (Note on scoring in the brackets.  I didn't have a chance to update those yet, but will do that later tonight.)

Bonus Point Opportunity:  I like to throw these out from time to time, and with the five game week going on during the semifinals, it seems like a good time.  So far, I've been giving you some tough players to make predictions about.  During this series, I'm going to give you a player that will be a little easier to make predictions about.  For this series, the target player is Ryan Braun.  The rules for these types of predictions are the same as before.  If you make a correct bonus prediction regarding Ryan Braun, you will get an extra point.  The prediction must qualify for one point to be eligible for the extra point, and you can earn one point each day.  Your prediction must involve Braun directly.  If you make a general prediction about the Brewers, and Braun is the player that fulfills that prediction, you don't get the extra point.  (For example, if you correctly predict "3 Brewers HR" and Braun hits one of those, you don't get an extra point, but if you correctly predict "Braun HR", you get the extra point.)

Extra Prediction for the Series:  Let's pull another prediction from the past.  For each game, predict the game score for the Brewers' starter for that game.  If you need a reminder, here's how game score is calculated.  If you are within 10 of the actual game score, you will get 1 point.  If you are within 5, you will get 2 points.  If you hit the game score exactly, you will get 3 points.
