Part 1: YES or NO
1) Curtis Granderson leads the club in HRs? (any ties count as a win for the YES answers) NO
2) Jenrry Mejia leads in saves? (same deal if there's a tie) YES

Will be on the team's ML roster (or DL) the entire season?
3) Dillon Gee YES
4) Bartolo Colon NO
5) Travis d'Arnaud YES
6) Anthony Recker NO
7) Daniel Murphy NO
8) Ruben Tejada YES
9) Jonathon Niese YES
10) Terry Collins (has to be field manager for a YES to count - if demoted but stays in the org with a "special assistant" title or other such nonsense it doesn't count) YES

Part 2: OVER/UNDER
11) Lucas Duda -- 29.5 HRs OVER
12) Michael Cuddyer -- 119.5 Starts Under
13) Jenrry Mejia -- 19.5 Saves OVER
14) Wilmer Flores -- 449.5 PAs OVER
15) Bartolo Colon -- 17.5 Starts UNDER for the Mets, maybe over counting starts for the team to which he will be traded.
16) David Wright -- 21.5 HRs (22 or more would surpass Straw's club record) OVER
17) Kirk Nieuwenhuis -- 199.5 PAs OVER
18) Noah Syndergaard -- 19.5 ML Starts OVER
19) Steven Matz -- 9.5 ML Starts OVER
20) Brandon Nimmo - 49.5 ML PAs Under

EITHER/OR - simply name one player or the other in each comparison

22) More PAs: Nieuwenhuis or Mayberry? Nieuwenhuis
23) More PAs: d'Arnaud or Plawecki? d'Arnaud

On Question #25:

KC - You answered 'Familia' when the question was Gilmartin or Leathersich

Lefty Specialist - You answered 'Neither' on that same question. No pushes allowed here, choose one or the other (and since Gilmartin has made the OD roster I assume you're going to opt for him)

Your entry will be accepted except you first need to correct your answer for Q #24 where, when asked to pick between Familia and Parnell, you chose Mejia.

First of all: 24 ENTRIES!! Nice participation folks.
The answers to TWO of the questions were unanimous:
(Q #22) that d’Arnaud would get more PAs than Plawecki (not so surprising)
and (Q #9) that Niese would remain on the team all year - maybe more surprising there, a tribute to his lefthandedness perhaps.


Summary:
Grandy leads in HRs: YES = 3 (Sharpie, BMFC1, and … ME put our faith in the Grandy Man - or lack of faith in others depending on how you want to look at it)
Mejia leads in saves: YES = 18 of the 24 votes

On roster all year?
3) Gee: YES = 16
4) Colon: YES = 8
5) d’Arnaud: YES = 22 (Ceetar & Zvon going against the grain on this one)
6) Recker: YES = 8
7) Murphy: YES = 12 (hmmm, exactly 50/50)
8) Tejada: YES = 8
9) Niese: YES = 24
10) Collins: YES = 23 (Han Solo is the lone man who sez no)

OVER/UNDER
11) Duda 29.5 HRs: OVER = 11
12) Cuddyer 119.5 Games: OVER = 16
13) Mejia 19.5 Saves: OVER = 15
14) Flores 449.5 PAs: OVER = 18
15) Colon 17.5 Starts: OVER = 14
16) Wright 21.5 HRs: OVER = 19
17) Nieuwenhuis 199.5 PAs: OVER = 9
18) Syndergaard 19.5 Starts: OVER = 2 (Ceetar & MFS ’62)
19) Matz 9.5 Starts: OVER = 4
20) Nimmo 49.5 PAs: OVER = 6

EITHER/OR
21) More PAs - Murphy or Herrera: 22/2 in favor of MURPHY (Kong & JCL are the dissenters)
22) More PAs - Nieuwenhuis or Mayberry: 15/9 MAYBERRY
23) More PAs - d’Arnaud or Plawecki: 24/0 d’ARNAUD
24) More Saves - Parnell or Familia: 15/8 FAMILIA
25 More IPs - Gilmartin or Leathersich: 18/6 GILMARTIN


Maybe I'll look to do quarterly updates on how our answers are looking.

I didn't notice the expiration date until 5 minutes before 9. I really had to bust it to get it in.

I meant to do all the predicting and forecast theads but I kept putting it off. Someone remind me next year how I screwed up this year.

The mid-season look at how the answers to these pre-season questions are trending.
Two of the 'On Roster All Year' answers were officially put into the books with the Gee and Recker demotions. Several others all but officially over.


QUESTIONRESULTSTRENDING
GRANDY LEADS TEAM in HRs21 of 24 = NO'YES" as he's in the lead by 3
MEJIA LEADS TEAM in SAVES18 of 24 = YES'NO', unless something REALLY radical happens
GEE to STAY on TEAM ALL SEASON16 of 24 = YESRecent demotion means ’NO’ wins this contest
COLON ON ROSTER ALL SEASON16 of 24 = NOStill hanging in there
d’ARNAUD ON ROSTER ALL SEASON22 of 24 = YESStill a YES despite the injuries
RECKER ON ROSTER ALL SEASON16 of 24 = NORecent demotion means ‘NO’ wins
MUPRHY ON ROSTER ALL SEASON12 said YES, 12 said NOSuddenly we’re discussing next year as an option
TEJADA ON ROSTER ALL SEASON16 of 24 = NOStill 'YES' and he's even starting now
NIESE ON ROSTER ALL SEASON24 of 24 = YESStill a ‘YES’ but there are rumors …
COLLINS IN CHARGE ALL SEASON23 of 24 = YESSo far so good, but they are on the west coast …
DUDA OVER/UNDER 29.5 HRs11 of 24 = OVER'UNDER' - on pace for 20
CUDDYER OVER/UNDER 119.5 Games Played16 of 24 = OVER’OVER' - on Pace for 146
MEJIA OVER/UNDER 19.5 Saves15 of 24 = OVERDecidedly looking like ‘UNDER’
FLORES OVER/UNDER 449.5 PAs18 of 24 = OVER’OVER - on Pace for 540
COLON OVER/UNDER 17.5 Starts14 of 24 = OVERNeeds just 2 more to secure the ‘OVER’
WRIGHT OVER/UNDER 21.5 HRs19 of 24 = OVERI think ‘UNDER’ is pretty much been declared the winner here
NIEUWENHUIS OVER/UNDER 199.5 PAs9 of 24 = OVER’UNDER’ - although ‘Over’ is once again technically possible
SYNDERGAARD OVER/UNDER 19.5 Starts2 of 24 = OVER’OVER’ - 10 down with 14 or so more out there for the taking
MATZ OVER/UNDER 9.5 Starts4 of 24 = OVER’OVER’ - See Syndergaard
NIMMO OVER/UNDER 49.5 PAs6 of 24 = OVER’UNDER” - but next call-up?
MURPHY or HERRERA: More PAs22 of 24 = MURPH’MURPHY’ by a better than 2-to-1 ratio
NIEUWENHUIS or MAYBERRY: More PAs15 of 24 = MAYBERRY’MAYBERRY’ by a landslide
d’ARNAUD or PLAWECKI: More PAs24 of 24 = d’ARNAUD’PLAWECKI’ retains a 2-to-1 edge - this one could go down to the wire
PARNELL or FAMILIA: More Saves15 of 24 = FAMILIAA 22-1 edge for ‘FAMILIA’
GILMARTIN or LEATHERSICH: More IPs18 of 24 = GILMARTIN25 to 11 lead for ‘GILMARTIN’
Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.

Updated as we hit the 3/4 pole.
Looks like 8 questions already have a firm answer with a bunch more all but official.
But a handful of these look like they're going to go down to the wire.

QUESTIONRESULTSTRENDING
GRANDY LEADS TEAM in HRs21 of 24 = NO'YES' although just by a single ‘Outta Here’
MEJIA LEADS TEAM in SAVES18 of 24 = YESThis is now officially a 'NO'
GEE to STAY on TEAM ALL SEASON16 of 24 = YESIn the books as a ’NO’
COLON ON ROSTER ALL SEASON16 of 24 = NO’YES’ looking like a near certainty
d’ARNAUD ON ROSTER ALL SEASON22 of 24 = YES’YES’ looking like a near certainty
RECKER ON ROSTER ALL SEASON16 of 24 = NOIn the books as a ‘NO’
MUPRHY ON ROSTER ALL SEASON12 said YES, 12 said NOAlso looks like a definite ‘Yes’
TEJADA ON ROSTER ALL SEASON16 of 24 = NOAnother ‘YES' is all but official
NIESE ON ROSTER ALL SEASON24 of 24 = YESA healthy Matz may have changed things, but now a sure ‘YES’
COLLINS IN CHARGE ALL SEASON23 of 24 = YESSurvived the west coast trip … so ‘YES’
DUDA OVER/UNDER 29.5 HRs11 of 24 = OVER'UNDER' but close - on pace for 28
CUDDYER OVER/UNDER 119.5 Games Played16 of 24 = OVERTOSS UP — on Pace for 120.15 !!
MEJIA OVER/UNDER 19.5 Saves15 of 24 = OVERIn the books as a ‘NO’ - probably for his career as well
FLORES OVER/UNDER 449.5 PAs18 of 24 = OVER’OVER - on Pace for 558
COLON OVER/UNDER 17.5 Starts14 of 24 = OVER’OVER’ with plenty of (waistband) room to spare
WRIGHT OVER/UNDER 21.5 HRs19 of 24 = OVER‘UNDER’ got the tap-out on this one months ago
NIEUWENHUIS OVER/UNDER 199.5 PAs9 of 24 = OVERCurrently 113 short - so ’UNDER’ it is
SYNDERGAARD OVER/UNDER 19.5 Starts2 of 24 = OVERTwo more and the ’OVER’ bets win
MATZ OVER/UNDER 9.5 Starts4 of 24 = OVER’UNDER’ as he’s not likely to get 8 starts in Sept
NIMMO OVER/UNDER 49.5 PAs6 of 24 = OVER’UNDER’ as Conforto and Cespedes likely moved his call-up to next year
MURPHY or HERRERA: More PAs22 of 24 = MURPHIn the books for ‘MURPH’
NIEUWENHUIS or MAYBERRY: More PAs15 of 24 = MAYBERRYCould go either way as ’MAYBERRY’ leads but by just 32
d’ARNAUD or PLAWECKI: More PAs24 of 24 = d’ARNAUD’PLAWECKI’ leads by 92 but that's still doable for d’Arnaud
PARNELL or FAMILIA: More Saves15 of 24 = FAMILIAPUT IT IN THE BOOKS for ‘FAMILIA’
GILMARTIN or LEATHERSICH: More IPs18 of 24 = GILMARTINWas going to be ‘GILMARTIN’ even before JL’s TJ surgery

Whooops, quick update.

Looking back at my original questions, the one for Cuddyer was OVER/UNDER for 119.5 Starts for the season not merely games played in (I'm not sure I meant it that way but that's the way I stated it so that's the way we need to go on it).
So with 79 starts to date it leaves him needing to start in 41 of the remaining 42 games in order to score for the 'OVER' votes to win. So while 'OVER' isn't officially out yet, 'UNDER' has him in a headlock and is ready to apply the sleeper hold.
If we were to include his 10 PH/sub games then he's appeared in 89 which would put him on a pace for 120.15 game appearances which would likely bring this question right down to the wire, but that's not the question you folks were betting on (assuming that you even read the questions in the first place and didn't just go: A C B D C B A A B ... etc like you used to on the multiple choice quizzes you forgot to study for).
