    Old #22 versus new #22 bet

    thewupk and I are going to bet on which player has a higher on base percentage for the 2015 season. I am taking Nick Markakis and he is betting on Jason Heyward. I propose a 25.00 dollar straight up bet. Only qualifier is that both players reach a certain number of plate appearances.

    I agree to this. 400 plate apperances sound fair?

    Sure 400 plate appearances is the requirement. Higher on base percentage wins.

    Wouldn't bet against a player in his walk season. Jason is playing for a lot of money.

    I still say it's a coin toss. Markakis I think is a lock for a 8.5% walk rate. Heyward for 10.0% walk rate. Will depend on batting average for both players. I think Markakis should hit .280 or higher. Heyward will need to hit .270.

    I am getting out of this place. Bet is still on of course. I am a man of my word. SAV has me on facebook, so once the season is up he can act as the middle man and we can get in touch.

    Hope you come back Niners. Even though I disagree with roughly 98% of what you say, your posts still amuse me.

    How did I miss this thread when it started? I would have bet my house on Heywood in December but I am always hopelessly optimistic with elite hitting prospects.
