The 2017 LSB "Which is Higher" Predictions Contest

New, 11 comments

There are 44 sets of numbers, based on what various Rangers players will do in 2016. For each set, pick which one will be larger.

This is our annual over/under predictions contest for the 2017 Texas Rangers.

This was something Sky Kalkman came up with, and I stole this from him, including the instructions.  Here's how it works:

Below you will find 44 pairs of numbers. In each case, you tell me which number will be bigger. One point for each correct answer. Most points wins.

Ties — and I expect there to be a nontrivial number of them — go to the side that had fewer votes. For example, here is a pair of numbers:

Wins by the Yankees
Wins by the Red Sox

Let’s say 41 people take the Yankees and 54 take the Red Sox. If the Yankees and Red Sox end up with the same number of wins, then each Yankee-backer will get a point and each Red Sox-backer will not.

Entries close as of midnight on 4/5/16.
