2010 Baseball Board – What to watch for in the last week 2


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:

  1. 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)
  2. 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)
  3. Will David Wright hit 25.5 homeruns this season?
    He currently has 25 homeruns.
    Projected winner: Over (Nate)
  4. 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)
