Enter now to win an autographed Clayton Kershaw baseball (authenticated by Steiner Sports). All entries must be made by 12:30 PM EST on Thursday, March 31 using the form in this post to be valid (and all questions, including tie-breakers, must be answered).

The contest is a simple one, guess the total number of strikeouts for all games played over the first two days of the season (March 31 and April 1). The person who comes closest, without going over, wins.

In case that there is a tie, I am going to ask that everyone submit two tie-breaker guesses as well:

- Tie-Breaker #1: Which pitcher will have the most strikeouts over the two days?
- Tie-Breaker #2: How many strikeouts will that pitcher have? (closest without going over)

As of right now there are 17 games scheduled for the first two days of the season. If a game should get postponed for whatever reason, it clearly will not count, so keep that in mind.

Only one submission will be allowed per person. If you submit more than one entry, your second entry will be deemed invalid.

Good luck!!

**Entry is officially closed. Good luck to everyone!!**

ah, I forgot about the possibilities of a rainout. You know there’s got to be at least one.

I hope you post stats on people’s guesses.

Yes I agree. I think it would be very interesting to see those stats…. granted I’m a geek so maybe Jason and I are in the minority here

good luck everyone!

I’d like to see a breakdown of guesses as well. And people’s tiebreak responses.

So far, 6 games down and a total of 89 K’s

Think I hit the nail on the head but blew it with Ubaldo as my tiebreaker

Sooo how many K’s are we looking at Prof.?
