Note: The backup copies of the scripts I run for this game were from 2 years ago, so the results will have to wait 1 more week. Sorry about that.

New Game!

We played this once in the postseason last year, a tweak on the old "Player Pick" game.
It does involve a little more thinking, but I do think it's at least a little more interesting...

The rules?
Simple. You're going to fill in the blanks to make a (hopefully true) statement.
Pick the stats of an Angels starting position and a feat, and guess how many times they will do it.
You have the option of picking exactly a certain amount or at least a certain amount.

In return for picking the obviously more difficult exactly 2 bonus points will be given!
And the "certain amount" you pick will also contribute to your score... (if you get the whole thing right that is)

Confusing? well... here are some examples.

Examples:
Starting Angels C, will get exactly 2 strikeouts (right) => 2 + 2 = 4 pts
Starting Angels DH, will get at least 3 hits (right) => 0 + 3 = 3 pts
Starting Angels LF, will get exactly 1 walk (wrong) => 0 pts
