Opening Day for the Brewers is now seven days away. With the first pitch of the 2015 season fast approaching, it's time to get your predictions for the 2015 season.

At the bottom of this page you will find a Google form. It's a five-page form, asking for various predictions for the 2015 season. There are predictions about the Brewers hitters, Brewers pitchers, and the division race. At the end, you'll get to make a bold prediction of your own about something you think will happen this season.

Entries are due at 1:10 pm on Monday, April 6. That's the expected first pitch time for Opening Day, if you've lost track. Shortly after that, I'll publish the full sheet of predictions, so you can compare your predictions to everyone else's picks.

Here's how the scoring will be handled. At the end of the season, I will score the predictions based on the final stat totals (regular season only, in case the Brewers make the playoffs). For number predictions, top 10 predictions will get between 1 and 10 points (10 for closest, 9 for 2nd closest, etc.) In the case of a tie, all players who tied get that many points. For multiple choice questions, each correct answer is 5 points. The points are subject to change based on how many entries there are, but any changes would be increases in points based on number entries. There's no prizes for this other than bragging rights.

Once you've made your predictions, you can ask for edits in the comments. There's also a link you can copy at the end that should enable you to view & edit your own predictions afterwards. However, once the first pitch is thrown on Opening Day, everything is locked in.

If you have any questions, let me know in the comments below. Otherwise, good luck with your predictions.
