Welcome to our July contest, "Clogging The Bases."
The contest is about total bases for both teams in each Dodger game. For each game, you have to guess two things:
1) Combined Total Bases From Both Teams, including singles, doubles (2 bases), triples (3 bases), homers (4 bases), walks (1 base), HBP (1 base), and net stolen bases (SB - CS, 1 base)
2) First player to score a run in the game
As an example, the June 30th Dodgers/Rockies game featured 5 singles, 2 homers, 3 walks, and one net stolen base, so the number of total bases was 17. This was an extraordinarily low number. The first player to score was Brad Hawpe.
The most important thing is to guess the correct number of total bases. There cannot be multiple guesses of the same total bases.
The next most important thing is to guess the first player to score a run. There can be multiple guesses of the same player, but no identical guesses with the same total bases and player.
In case of a tie of total bases with no correct player scoring, under beats over.
If there is nobody within 10 total bases of the actual total, yet someone picks the correct player to score the first run of the game, that person will win.
Only guesses in this thread will count, and they must be received before the first pitch of the game.
The person who has the most wins at the end of June will win their choice of Bluetopia on DVD, a 2009 Dodger Media Guide, a copy of "100 Things Dodgers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die" by Jon Weisman, or a 2009 Topps Dodgers' team baseball card set!
|July 5||no winner||n/a||58/Ethier|Matthewmafa was closer to the actual number with his guess of 36 bases, but he didn't get his guess in before the game time of 1:05pm. Xeifrank was the closest among those who got their entry in on time. I forgot about my own 10-base rule. As a result, there is no winner for July 5. Thanks to the always honorable Xeifrank for pointing this out.
