Thread: MLB Beat the Streak In A Day

1. MLB Beat the Streak In A Day

How about this? MLB is offering \$5.6 million to anyone who can pick 57 players who will get a hit in tomorrow's games. It's got to be impossible, but of course I'm giving it a shot. Care to make it a Redszone challenge? Pride at stake.

[Edit: 57 players. You have to beat the streak, not tie.]

I'm in it.... This should be fun...

I am in.

Let's say you have 56 batters who each are .300 hitters who will get 4 PA and don't walk at all. The chances of all 56 getting a hit is: ((1-(.7^4)^56 or 1 in 4,760,352. Good luck!

Good to know you can get it out of the way all at once, but good luck!

So you're saying I have a chance?!

Just the odds that all 57 of your players even play that day are slim to none. But I took the challenge!

Considering there is a prize involved, getting infinite odds (no entry fee) is a damn good deal.

That's why I put it here. Just to show that I'm the best RZer at calling shots!

I really want to win this thing!

1 in 4.7 million sounds daunting.

I choose to look at it this way: I just have to accurately pick 4 players in a game who will get a hit. Easy as pie.

And then I have to do it 14 more times. D'oh.

Not trying, b/c I'll get screwed. I'll probably get 56 guys with a hit. Then #57 will come to the plate hitless in the 9th inning. He will get an obvious infield hit, but... the official scorer will be related to the Cubs official scorer who used to rule all of Ryne Sandberg's errors as hits. He'll try to make up for his relative's injustice by giving the infielder an error to make it OK.

Well,all the lineups are out now except the Pads, Giants, and A's. Good luck all!

13. Re: MLB Beat the Streak In A Day

I picked at least one player on every team except one. The Pirates. I joked that Homer was going to no hit them.

14. Re: MLB Beat the Streak In A Day

So far, I've gotten 18 correct.... 11 inncorect
