Week 3 action continues in St. Louis this weekend. After the first series of the week, gavitron9 has taken a big lead and is in control this week. Of course, with a little luck you could replicate that success. Meanwhile, in the overall standings, a rough series by MichaelE1 allowed icecreamman to take the overall lead, and gavitron9 is close behind MichaelE1 after the high-scoring Houston series. It's just a normal series for Prognostikeggers, where chances can happen and they can happen quickly.
Programming Note: I will be out of town this weekend and will have limited to no access to the internet during that time. As a result, Monday's post will be postponed. Kyle will post the forms for the Padres series on Monday at the usual time (10 am), and I will have the regular post on Tuesday.
Extra Prediction for the Series: This series, we're going to a winning margin prediction. All you have to predict for the extra prediction this week is what the winning margin will be. You don't have to pick a winning team, just how much you think the winning team will win by. If you are correct, you will get two points. If you are within one of the actual margin, you will be one point.

Explanation on Denied Bonuses
Greinke 8+ Ks - You have to predict a minimum of 10 strikeouts for a Greinke start. Anything less than that is just too common. If he doesn't get to 10 in his next start, I'll take it down to a minimum of 9, but 8 will still be short.
Brewers 3+ XBH - It's too common, happens in over half of their games. You need to go up to 5+ XBH for it to count.
Wolf less than 7 IP - He does this in over half of his starts. You would need to predict less than 6 IP for it to count.
