I have my total at a woeful 675. Did well in the Players Stats and Bonus Question I. Not so well in the other two.

I wonder if anyone will even break 1000 which is exactly half the point total possible.

I'm guessing that nobody got the lowest ERA prediction correct.
In Theo we trust.

I amazed myself with some of my predictions ... both right and wrong.

Got Theriot's BA and Zambrano's strikeouts exactly. Marshalls ERA was .04 off. Those were definitely my best three.

I don't think I got any exactly right but I got 6/8 Bonus I. Missed HR's between Fontenot and Fukudome and SLG between Ramirez and Bradley. The last one in retrospect was just plain stupid on my part. Didn't know a whole lot about Bradley when the predictions where made.

That's higher than I thought I would be. Back-to-back top 10's isn't too bad.

Wow, I really stunk it up. Dead last, more than 100 points behind the next worst.

If I'm going to be bad, may as well do it in style and be REALLY bad.
