Before the regular seasons started, we had a little fun with our annual over/unders contest. We asked you guys to pick OVER or UNDER on 13 numbers for the 2012 season, with the winner to receive a $50 gift certificate to the online store of your favorite baseball team.
Here are the results…
At this point, we are going to declare an UNOFFICIAL winner. Reader Greg correctly picked 10 of the 13. Three others had 9 correct.
This is unofficial for a couple of reasons. First, one of the over/unders is still in play. Number 11 asked for the number of first place MVP votes for Evan Longoria (over/under 0.5). We are working under the assumption that the actual number will be ZERO*.
Also, we want to give everybody an opportunity to double-check their entries and file a protest if necessary. We triple-checked all of the top entries so we are fairly confident that we got the right winner. But I have graded enough exams in my day to know mistakes happen.
If nobody files a protest by 5pm (ET) on Friday, we will declare Greg the official winner.
* In fact, several readers will tie for the lead if Longoria somehow gets a first-place vote. If that happens, we will apply a tie-breaker to those contestants and issue a second gift card.
