SoSG Streaking Proposition Post: Play-In Round

Suddenly, the seats in the pavilions seem more desirable.

All right, it's the play-in round! And the proposition bet for today's game (Tuesday, July 26 vs. the Rockies) is:

Number of strikeouts for Clayton Kershaw this evening: over/under 9.5 strikeouts. (Go ahead, check Kershaw's stats.)

Go to it, play-in round party people--choose your side!

i'm optimistic and haven't even started drinking yet...i'll take the OVER.

Neeebs said...

I say under.

He will have between 7-9

Central Valley Fan said...

wow, thanks, I actually wanted to say under!

MR.F said...

It doesn't matter if I respond, does it?

Fernie V said...

Over, but are you following your rules or the new rules.

Keven C said...

Under.
Never tell me the odds.

Spank said...

NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEBS!

Jason said...

It's a good thing I'm not in this round because I think he will have exactly 9.5 (striking out a relief pitcher who has 10 or less PA counts as a half, right?).

Steve Sax said...

So far we've got:

Neeebs takes over, so hawkhandler takes under

In Vin Veritas takes over, so CV fan is happy with the under

Fernie V takes the over, leaving Keven C with the under

We need a call from Steve K or Loney Fan, and there's only a half-hour until game time (we're calling it 7p sharp)

Fernie V said...

We need to give it to Loney Fan, the last one out there.

Steve Sax said...

wait, I forgot to mention:

--hawkhandler hasn't signed in, so he may be eliminated if he doesn't do so soon

--still waiting for Steve K and Loney Fan

Steve Sax said...

Thread is LOCKED

Neeebs advances (hawkhandler does not show)

Steve K and Loney Fan both lose, leaving Josh S to coast through tomorrow's round

Face-offs are live between In Vin Veritas (over) and Central Valley Fan, and Fernie V (over) and Keven C.

Good luck!

One down 9 to go

Fernie V said...

2 down 7 to go

Fernie V said...

4 down 6 to go.

Steve Sax said...

don't give up hope Fernie V

Steve Sax said...

5 Ks for the kid

Fernie V said...

5 down 5 to go, we got a lead he can relax.

Fernie V said...

he is up there in pitches

Central Valley Fan said...

I'm not happy about betting the under, I just know, if I bet over, then we would lose. I'm an albatross that way!

Neeebs said...

Maybe I blinded Sax with my nakedness. I was actually the UNDER. Point is moot, I guess.

Steve Sax said...

@neeebs, you did indeed have the under. my bad

Keven C said...

A win, but it still feels dirty.
Go bullpen!

Fernie V said...

damn it this actually made it interesting. How about a losers bracket?

Fernie V said...

Congrats Keven if this game goes south i am blaming you.

Steve K said...

Under!

Steve K said...

Am I too late???

Steve Sax said...

Sorry Steve K! You're out...

Steve K said...

You mean I can't make a bet after looking at the box score??? That's just unfair.


Seriously, though, I can't believe I completely forgot to do this!

LoneLy Fan said...

Well that sucks. Escrow on a short sale is a real son of bitch! Spent all evening running around and then packing. Just missed the cut off. Congratulations CVF! Glad to see a "Fan" win.

In Vin Veritas said...

how many 0-2 counts did the kid have tonight??? a shit ton i believe. slider was just not slidy enough to make fools look foolish. Paraprosdokian much?


pops gave me gin tonight...sorry folks.

I don't know how much fun this is going to be when half of the participants are incapable of participating.

Steve Sax said...

True true. But then, we Sons are incapable of humor or sarcasm or commitment and five years later we are still f'ing around on this blog
