    Braves 2017 prediction game

    We'll predict the series like we did last year. No individual games. 10 pts per correct answer


    To make things easy, 10 pt prediction questions will be ---

    Predict winner of series. If 4 game series, a tie can be predicted.

    Predict total runs scored in series. +/- 1 scores

    Total IP by Braves starters. +/- 1 IP scores

    total -- 30 pts

    1 bonus question= 20 pts for 50 pts possible per series.

    We'll start the year with Evad asking bonus question for Mutts series, then Sal, then Slink
    Oh, I've slipped the surly bonds of earth,
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings......

    And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
    The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

    First bonus question of the 2017 Season vs. Mutts: has to do with a couple new comers

    How many innings do Colon and Garcia last. Within 1 IP w/o going over scores.

    Up next are the Pirates. Braves have flipped Dickey and Folty due to bad weather concerns.

    Game 1 -- Fri 1;05, Folty vs Nova

    Game 2 -- Sat 7;05, Dickey vs Kuhl

    Game 3 -- Sun, 1;35, Teheran vs Cole


    Bonus question ---

    Total XBH in series

    Keeping in mind, the bad weather predicted, IF 1 of the games is cancelled, I'll take 2/3 of guess for scoring.
