Side betsApril 8th, 2010 by Eric Kesselman in Player Discussion, Prediction, Trash Talk
So Bill and I have a tendency to get into minor arguments over most players. Especially if some of those players are on my team, and some of those players are on his team.
We generally settle these disagreements with an array of side bets. I've done pretty well overall, having near clean sweeps of all the sidebets in 2007 and 2009, although I got nearly swept in 2008.
Here's what we've got so far (and its only a couple of days into the season):
All bets are from my perspective.
Jon Lackey, over 15 wins. 100 IP minimum, and 15 is a tie.
Marc Rzepzinsky will earn over $5 in Bill's model. Having some serious regret on this one, especially after the injury.
Miguel Cabrera will earn more than Longoria in Bill's model. I think MC is going to have a monster year, and I think the turf is going to wear on Longoria.
Anyone like my side of that last one?Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
