Congratulations ScottAZ -- Winner of the 2009 Good Phight World Series Prediction Contest

New, comments

The World Series is over, and the results of the 2009 Good Phight World Series Prediction Contest are in.  Congratulations to ScottAZ for getting 6 points in the context.  FuquaManuel tied ScottAZ, but as the rules state, I did a random drawing and ScottAZ won.  I'll be contacting ScottAZ shortly about the prize.

Here are the answers to each question asked in the contest.

  1. Cliff Lee wins:  2
  2. Ryan Howard home runs:  1
  3. Shane Victorino and Jimmy Rollins stolen bases (combined total):  3
  4. Eric Bruntlett plate appearances:  1
  5. Phillies starting pitcher innings not by Cliff Lee or Pedro Martinez:  10.3
  6. Brett Myers innings pitched:  1
  7. Jimmy Rollins walks:  5
  8. Brad Lidge saves:  0
  9. Alex Rodriguez hits with runners in scoring position:  2
  10. Mariano Rivera runs allowed:  0
  11. World Series outcome (victor and # of games):  Yankees in 6

A couple of entries are worth noting.  Sept.28.Oct.27.Dec.28.2008 had 5 points, the highest point total for an entry not guessing the correct outcome of the Series.  (Both ScottAZ and FuquaManuel guessed Yankees in 6, which was worth 3 points.)  And Phils 2036 World CH guessed correctly that Jimmy Rollins would have 5 walks, something I consider an absurd guess and outcome!

Thanks to all for playing.  Let's do this again next October!
