    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.

    I was enjoying niners' contrarian posts. Oh well. I assume he's just doing what I do every few months and he'll be back.

    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.
