Who Will Win the Stickied Contest?

Recommended Posts

So who has a chance to win the stickied "How many games will the Tigers win in 2009" contest? I'm too lazy to look. I will say this, I bet no one had the Tigers in a one game playoff at the end of the season.

Will the Thrill and CM Riverdog both had 86 wins and 50 home wins.

The Tigers won 86 and 51 respectively I believe.

Both had Cabrera as the homer leader.

CM had Lyons for Tigers saves leader and Will had Zumaya.

Lyons had 3 saves to Zumayas 1 so I think maybe CM Riverdog is the winner?

Shouldn't you count Tuesday as well?

If so, and the Tiger's win, then I believe it would be Wanker.

No - there's 162 games in a season.

Tuesday should count. It's officially a regular season game and it counts in the regular season statistics.

What 337 said. Tuesday is not part of the playoffs, it's part of the regular season.

If Pujols ever hits his 74th homer in a one-game playoff, will he get an asterisk next to it anyway?

I think the tie breaker game is considered part of the playoffs because the ticket for it is part of the playoff package and not regular season tickets.

If Tuesday's game is considered a playoff game, that means that both the Tigers and the Twins officially made it to the playoffs, right? ;)

The sticky thread uses regular season in the rules.

Tuesday's game is a regular season game:

Jason Kubel and Delmon Young each delivered two home runs to lift the Twins to a 13-4 victory over the Royals on Sunday afternoon before a sold-out crowd of 51,155 in what was to be the Metrodome's regular-season finale.

I know you can't alwyas trust the mlb beat reporters, but this one is right.

Go Tigers, win one for the Wanker!

Baseball Reference lists the Boston Red Sox' 1978 record as 99-64 in 163 games. So I think the game will be impact one's regular season record. For some reason, I had thought until I looked that up that the final records this year would read as 86-76*, with the asterisk explaining that the team won or lost a tiebreaking game.

Looking over that thread, it's amazing how many of us, myself included, had picked someone other than Rodney to lead the team in saves. Just kind of skimming the thread it looks like only about 40 people thought Rodney would lead the team out of 130+ submissions. I had forgotten how up in the air the closer role was at the beginning of the year.
