TGP Mega Prediction Game Season Eight!!

Wow, SEASON 8!! We have run this thing on a forum that Bryan Van Dusen, Bryan Knepper and I came from before we had the blog and it has been a hit in every single season. I expect no different this year as Mr. Ken Reed comes to defend his title. If you’re unfamiliar with the games I will link the rules below but basically the name of the game is pretty self-explanatory, it’s a prediction game based on points. You have a certain point total you can wager per game and you bet that on whether the Yankees will win or lose all 162 games. The player with the most points at the end of the season wins the game.

It’s an everyday commitment almost and it’s a grind but it can definitely be fun if you are willing to put in the time. You can predict as far out as you want so theoretically you can predict all 162 games today if you’d like or you can do them one at a time. Usually I do my predictions per series because I feel that’s the smartest thing to do but you can do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.

All you have to do is leave a comment in the Mega Prediction Game thread HERE to be involved. Now about those rules……

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 2 Pt, and a 1 Pt game. In a four game series you will see a 4 Pt game added. For example:

4/6/15 - 4/9/15 New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Game 1 Win - 3 Pts
Game 2 Win - 2 Pts
Game 3 Win - 1 Pt

All predictions must be submitted in the comment box, on twitter @GreedyStripes, or via email at The Greedy Pinstripes 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 then you would only be allowed your two lowest wagers. There is no minimum so even if you miss two games and want to wager 1 point on the third game then that is perfectly fine. See example:

4/6/15 - 4/9/15 New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Game 1 MISSED 
Game 2 Win - 1 Pt
Game 3 Win - 2 Pts 

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.
