TGP's Mega Prediction Game


Starting with the series tomorrow against the Baltimore Orioles, 8/31, The Greedy Pinstripes will be test running something that we plan to implement EXCLUSIVELY on TGP next season... A Mega Prediction Game. We will be running this from tomorrow all the way to the end of the season to see who is the best at wagering and predicting the New York Yankees.

No game is without a prize. The winner will receive a New York Yankees keychain seen HERE!

 Now here are the rules for the game:

You will predict the outcome of every game one series at a time. You will predict whether the Yankees will win or lose the game but will also wager a point amount determined by how many games are in the series. If there is a three game series , like the one starting tomorrow, you will be able to wage a 3 Pt, a 2Pt, and a 1 Pt game. In a four game series you will see a 4 Pt game added. For example:

8/31- 9/2 Baltimore Orioles Vs New York Yankees

Game 1 Win - 3 Pts(Kuroda)
Game 2 Win - 1 Pt(Garcia)
Game 3 Win - 2 Pts (Phelps)

All predictions must be submitted in the comment box, on twitter @GreedyStripes, or via email at TheGreedyPinstripes@gmail.com BEFORE the first pitch of the game. If it is not predicted before the first pitch of the game then you are penalized your highest point game. If you were to miss the prediction tomorrow then you would only be allowed your two lowest wagers. See example:


8/31- 9/2 Baltimore Orioles Vs New York Yankees

Game 1 MISSED (Kuroda)
Game 2 Win - 1 Pt(Garcia)
Game 3 Win - 2 Pts (Phelps)

Tie breakers will be whoever predicts the most perfect series meaning who gets the most series predicted correctly. If there is still not a winner then we will use the playoffs as a tie breaker. You MUST be a registered user to use the comment box to play the game. No anonymous users will be counted in our tallies or be eligible for the prize, although you can still play for fun if you would like.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I encourage everyone reading this to participate because it is completely free and really fun. I have run this now for 5 seasons in the Yankees forum at DailySportsPages.com and it has always been a big hit. This, again, is a dry run so any comments or feedback is appreciated. Go Yankees!!
