I'm pretty sure all my answers are dodgers or dodger players.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Mama Eckleburg is out of the hospital and doing fine. It's pretty crazy, she has no risk factors other than being 66, doesn't smoke, cholesterol's fine, and all her other arteries are fine except for one that was almost 100% blocked. If your parents are olds, make sure they know that chest pains + shortness of breath = call 911 NOW. Mom did, ambulance came, and she coded when they got to the hospital. Lucky for her that was basically the best place to be if you're going to code, so they took her right to the cardiac cath lab, put a stent in, and she's been basically fine since. Need to make some lifestyle changes, cut back on sodium, and take a bunch of new meds, but she should be alright.

That locks our entries at 49!

I'm getting on the road, the Question 1 reveal will take place Wednesday or Thursday.
We actually have 47, I counted two entries twice.

For the Detroit/CWS game that was rained out, we'll go by the make up game which was the next day, won by Detroit.

Had something similar happen with my mom like 8 yards ago when she was in her 50s. No issues since, g'luck g'luck.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

For this question, we had 28 correct answers, 17 incorrect answers, and 2 members starting off In The Club.

We'll start by reviewing the incorrects first.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Let's pour one out for our ol' pal trollface, who is MIA this year.

I'd like to think he'd select something like the Birmingham Barons for this question, but we've got two entries that are almost as good!

The Diamondbacks and Cubs played on Sunday, and not on April 3rd, which is why I PUT THE SCHEDULE IN THE OP! ...And the Cubs still lost anyway.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our most popular incorrect was played by 3 contestants. The Chicago White Sox were rained out in their game on April 3rd, and had no answer for Justin Verlander in the makeup game. They lost 6-3 on Tuesday.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

We had 2 contestants select the next handful of incorrects. The Texas Rangers were at home and jumped on Cleveland early, but Sam Dyson melted down in the 9th. They lost to Cleveland 8-5.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Also played by 2 entrants and incorrect we have the Seattle Mariners. Some trendy sleeper buzz for the M's after all the moves DiPoto made in the offseason, but they fell to the Astros in the opener.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our last incorrect played by two people are the Los Angeles Angels. Starting Ricky Nolasco on Opening Day? What could go wrong! They lost to Oakland 4-2.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

The Toronto Blue Jays were in the only game that went to extras on Opening Day, but Mark Trumbo walked it off for the O's. The Blue Jays lost 3-2 in 11.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

The final incorrect is my terrible Atlanta Braves. Sure, any team is never *that* big a dog vs any other team in one game of regular season baseball, but Thor was utterly dominant on Opening Day. The Mets blanked the Braves 6-0.
