Dodgers Scrapbook Contest, Part 2

All right now! The Dodgers got an even number of hits in last night's loss, so that leaves 12 of you (on Team 2) still in the running for the Dodgers scrapbook prize. So here's what we're going to do to eliminate three of the 12 survivors, based on an outcome of tonight's game:

Rules for Round 2:

Each of the remaining players is getting assigned a number:

  • 1. Steve K
  • 2. Barry
  • 3. @aliaseternal
  • 4. karina
  • 5. eddie.hyatt
  • 6. rbnlaw
  • 7. Pete&Eric
  • 8. DDGRDUG
  • 9. AlexMarkie
  • 10. DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy
  • 11. Mr. LA Sports Czar
  • 12. Patrick G. Rockenbach

The numbers will roll sequentially following the number of pitches from Chad Billingsley in tonight's game (May 9, 2012). On the 13th pitch, it rolls back to #1 (Steve K) and proceeds in order from there again.

Once Bills pitches his last pitch, whoever owns that number, PLUS the next two players in order, will be eliminated. For example, if Bills pitches 14 pitches total in the game, Barry will be eliminated (14/12 = 1r2, and #2 = Barry), as well as the two next players in the list, @aliaseternal and karina.

That should leave nine surviving players, going into Round 3! (Let me say this, though, to you remaining lucky 12: you need to be following our blog or you will also be eliminated from contention.) Good luck!

Blame Juan Uribe

If he had gotten a hit there in the seventh, you would be alive

I like that last round contestants were rooting *for* a certain number and tonight contestants are rooting *against* certain numbers.

Anyone else at the game?!?

Steve Sax said...

Billingsley had 85 pitches

85/12 = 7r1

So, Steve K, Barry, and @aliaseternal are knocked out. Here we go!

I'm pretty sure the math is wrong. Or maybe it was 86 pitches. Or maybe I was #12 in the list instead of #1. One of those things must've happened. Right?
