Make up your own crazy or not so crazy event to happen this week. If it comes true I will assign points to it fairly subjectively based on the following criteria. Please don't make it too hard for me to calculate it.
< 10% chance of happening (50 points)
< 25% chance of happening (25 points)
< 50% chance of happening (15 points)
> 50% chance of happening (10 points)
> 75% chance of hapenning (2 points)
ie - Ted Lilly gives up zero earned runs on Monday (30 points)
ie - Matt Kemp has a multiple HR game (40 points)
ie - Clayton Kershaw pitches a CG shutout (40 points)
ie - The Dodgers sweep the Rockies (35 points)
10) Pick the sequence of wins (W) and losses (L) for the seven games (ARI,ARI,sd,sd,STL,STL,STL) this week.
ie - WWWLLWW
Each pick is worth 5 points, but you are not eligible for more points once you miss a game. If the Dodgers win their first four games the picks in the example above would net you 5+5+5=15 points.
