Prognostikeggers 2012 - Week 6: Brewers @ Mets


Week 5 is done.

It was nearly a wire-to-wire win for icecreamman this week. He jumped into the lead on Tuesday, and with three days of six or more points, never relinquished it. Following behind in second for the week is Kyle Lobner, who had his best week so far but just fell short. After that, texwestern finished right behind him in third place.

With the massive week, icecreamman opened up a giant lead in the overall standings. Following him is aaronetc, who has moved up to second place. Behind him, texwestern and MichaelE1 are close, and then there's another gap between them and the rest of the field.

With two short series to start the week, it's a three-series week. Three weeks remain in the first part of the season. Will anyone challenge icrecreamman for the top spot in the standings?

Extra Prediction for the Series: In the offseason, the Mets moved in the fences at Citi Field. That will come into play with the prediction for this series. Predict the length of the longest home run hit in each game. Predictions within 10 feet of the actual distance are worth 1 point, 5 feet are worth 2 points, and exact predictions are worth 3 points. You may also predict no home runs hit by predicting 0 feet, and that is worth 2 points if you are correct.

Explanation on Denied Bonuses

Lucroy pinch hits - Unfortunately, hat's not good enough on it's own. In his eight days where he did not start, he pinch hit in four of them. If you predicted that he got a hit as a pinch hitter, that would work.
