Every season I find myself making performance bets with various people around the intertubes. I usually take the side of The Data and I usually win (thank you, selective memory.) For example, last year, I won a bet by arguing Gary Sheffield was not going to keep up his first half surge. The year before I won a bet by arguing Gabe Gross was not going to keep up his clutch-tastic streak.
Anyway, enough gloating about my laurels. I'm creating this thread to keep track of any bets I make for the 2010 season. If you'd like to offer me any in the comments, feel free. I don't bet money or anything with materialistic value, but I'm happy to move beyond avatar bets. 2010 team wins under/overs aren't a bad place to start.
Just make sure you bring an overly optimistic fanboy attitude -- I like to win.
The 2009 Bets
- Jered Weaver will have below a 120 ERA+ for 2010. Bet with Figgi4life. One week signature bet: Jered Weaver's a nice #3 starter versus Weaver's '09 wasn't a fluke.
- Jair Jurrjens will have an ERA above 3.25. Bet with @FriedBasballATL. Three tweets about how right the other person was.
- (One or two more in comments. Pull them up here.)
