We are now one month through the season, and halfway through the first part of the Prognostikeggers year.
In Week 4, Kid19 ended up coming out on top after scoring 18 points in the Giants series and 10 points in the last game of the series. Dulzy finished up a couple of points behind in second place, and texwestern finished the week in third place. Meanwhile, in the overall standings, MichaelE1 rebounded from a weak Week 3 to retake the overall lead. After that, icecreamman remained in second place just a couple of points behind.
Now, we're moving into week 5. For those of you who have been working hard all season so far, it's time to make a move or solidify your position. This is also the time to keep posting while some have stopped posting predictions because of the rough patch the Brewers have hit. It's a rough time to be a Brewers fan, but it's not time to give up on anything.
Extra Prediction for the Series: I was hoping to avoid reusing previous extra prediction ideas for a little longer, but I'm out of ideas so it's time to start reusing some. For this series, you are going to predict the game score of the starting pitcher. For an explanation on game score, look here. If your prediction is within 10 of the actual game score, you will get 1 point. If your prediction is within 5, you will get 2 points. If you prediction is exact, you will get 3 points.
To help you out, here's the game score for each starter's last start:
Zack Greinke: 44
Yovani Gallardo: 47
Randy Wolf: 41
Shaun Marcum: 51
Marco Estrada: 40
Also, here is an example of the highest and lowest game score for the Brewers this season.
76 - Zack Greinke on 4/7 - 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K
9 - Yovani Gallardo on 4/27 - 2 IP, 8 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
