    I am in every year. No one gave us a shot
    In 91. But we don't need to make playoffs for this to be a successful season.

    Count me in, but going to defer because there's still a lot of "off season" left before the Opening Day roster takes shape. It's too early to compare them with '91 until catcher, 2B, 3B and #1 starter are sorted out. Otherwise, they're going into the season as better than .500 club but not at contender status as it stands at this moment.

    This thread should be stickied.

    I will check in on most threads to make smart-alecky remarks.

    There are a few things while I have time to rebuild the program to make it even better.

    1. Still same format in regards to points

    Questions 1 thru 5 true or false or similar that has only two answers, ties count as correct answer. 3 pts (total of 15)

    Questions 6 thru 10 are variable point questions, you can be 4 below or above the answer to still receive points. Example: Teheran will throw 110 pitches. If you guess between 106 and 114 you will receive points, +/- further from the correct answer, like 109 will 4 so will 111, as 108 you will receive 3 as will, etc. Max per questions is 5 for a total of 25

    Now if you come up with the correct answer from 1 thru 10 you should end up with 40.

    Bonus Question is #11. The question giver usually try to make it hard, but you can earn up 10 pts with a similar format as 6 thru 10, the answer can be worth between 1 and 10 with a 20 swing in the answer. People rarely miss out obtaining points.

    50 pts is the max you can receive, some people have gotten 44, which I think is the highest. Shoot for that goal.

    Statistics will be kept better as I have time to make it better.

    Now this is what I need from you all. All that want to participate and already answered, don't bother to answer. Those who just made comments, just edit and say you are in. If I can get the roster up now, it makes things easier.

    The last thing I need is someone to provide me a full schedule this year and not in a calendar format. If it is like this, this will help with the transition to a database cluster.

    Apr 1 STL
    Apr 2 STL
    Apr 3 STL
    Apr 5 DET

    You get the picture. I need it in that format and if I have that, it would allow me to get questions out and answers/stats much quicker.

    Thank you for your continued participation after a year hiatus.

    As soon as Sav set my rights, I will post the first set of questions, get a number of committed players and then promote some more.

    Good luck and have fun everyone!!
