Matthew and Nate ran down the baseball board on today’s podcast and currently they’re sitting at a 14-14 tie, with 4 bets still open. In all likelihood, this board will end in a tie so e-mail the show and suggest a board wager for the last week to break this tie.
Here’s what’s still open on the board:
- Will Bobby Jenks save 30 games?
Jenks is currently dealing with a forearm injury and it’s not looking good for him to pick up the 3 saves he needs to get to 30. Ozzie Guillen hasn’t ruled out him for the season but I don’t think he’ll get enough chances if he does pitch again this year.
Projected winner: under 30 saves (Matthew)
- Who finishes higher on the Player Rater: Adam Jones or Nick Markakis?
Currently, Jones (5.14) is leading Markakis (4.45) on the Player Rater.
Projected winner: Jones (Matthew)
- Will David Wright hit 25.5 homeruns this season?
He currently has 25 homeruns.
Projected winner: Over (Nate)
- Who wins more 5×5 categories (ERA, K, W, WHIP, IP): Daisuke Matsuzaka or Jair Jurrjens?
Player IP BB H WHIP ERA K W Jurrjens 87.1 29 92 1.39 4.33 67 6 Matsuzaka 80.2 37 80 1.46 5.13 70 4
Jurrjens currently leads 4-1. Jair is in danger of having his season cut short so IP is no longer a lock for him. He still has Wins and ERA under control but the window is open for Matsuzaka to take IP, Ks and WHIP.
Projected winner: Jurrjens (Nate)
