Welcome to our August contest: "Just A Bit Outside."
The contest is simple: Before each game you have to guess two things:
1) Number of called balls thrown by the opposing team
2) Number of walks issued to the Dodgers (yes, intentional walks count)
No multiple guesses on the number of balls; it is OK, however, to have multiple guesses on the number of walks. Only guesses in that day's contest thread, posted before game time, will count.
We ran this contest in May, so if you want an example of how it works, here is an example.
The person who has the most wins at the end of August will win their choice of Bluetopia on DVD, a 2009 Dodger Media Guide, or a copy of "100 Things Dodgers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die" by Jon Weisman.
