32 Predictions Contest
This is the fifth year I’ve run this contest, but the first here at Baseball Prospectus. I stole the format from an old differential equations professor of mine, Doug Drinen of Pro-Football-Reference, and heck, I might as well steal his directions, too (translated into baseball-speak):
To enter, fill out the Google survey below. (If you don't see it, refresh.) The grand prize is Fame and Glory, with Bragging Rights going to everyone who finishes with at least a .500 record. (Last year the average score was 16.3 out of 32. Ouch.) Correlation is not causation, but Mike Fast is a previous winner, and look where he is now…
Ballots are due Monday, April 1 at midnight Pacific. In case of an overall tie, the winner is the person who entered first. Please help spread the word.
Update (March 30, 2013): The grand prize has been upgraded from bragging rights to a free one-year premium subscription to Baseball Prospectus!
Update (April 11, 2013): A summary of all the responses is available here.
