Re: Golf Thread
Here we go.
This year's Pythagorean is probably around 88 wins if it would have been calculated the day before the season started. Just a guess on my part. So, with that, PAR this year will be (5W-4L) for every 9 games the team plays, for an even par score of 90-72. Finish Par or better and the REDS should win the Division.
So, remember, that a stretch of 5-4 is a good thing, not a bad thing. You want to go 7-2 and 6-3 once in a while to offset any 4-5 and 3-6 stretches. But, in the end, winning 5 out of every 9 games should win the Division.
For those unfamiliar and new to this, you can look up past year's "Golf Threads" in the SunDeck to see how they went those years. The reason for doing this is to pull all the Chicken Littles off of the ledge whenever they see the REDS lose 3 games in a row. The sky isn't falling....not over any three game stretch of a 162-game season. (162 games divided by 9 equals exactly 18, which happens to be how many holes one plays in a round of golf). So, screwing up one hole doesn't necessarily mean you're going to have a bad round. Just get it back on the next hole, or try to hold par for a few holes until you can. Sort of like this year's Masters winner, who parred about a dozen holes in a row before he finished BIRDIE-BIRDIE-BIRDIE-BIRDIE to win the Masters in a clutch performance that's never been done before. Nobody has ever finished the Masters like that to win. It was truly one of the greatest golf performances ever.
Back to the "golf thread". Every 9 games, I'll post a score for the REDS based on 5 wins and 4 losses being par. If the REDS go 6-3 during a stretch, they get a Birdie and are 1-Under for the year, on pace for a 91-71 season, recalling that 90-72 is par. I'll post a different picture for every hole. Excuse me if I post a picture that I've posted in previous years, but it's getting more difficult each year to come up with new pictures. I try to not make them too large for the sake of the site, while trying if I can to make them relevant in some way to a current event, or not.
So, here we go...
