This should turn out to be quite fun.  A lot of gambling establishments have this sort of deal, and it will be fun to see the results.

What Runs Survivor is, a MLB team scoring 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, 10 or (10+) in different games throughout the course of the season.

Once a club has one of these run totals once, you cross it off and keep going until they complete the 11 different variations.  We are going to keep tracking this category – until all 30 MLB clubs are finished this season!

The Padres ran the gauntlet over the last few games, scoring 8, 9, 10 all to complete their mission of 11 totals.  It was a surprise these guys finished in the top half of the league considering they only had 7/11 10 days ago – holding down the 30th spot in the rankings.

Based on a mistake I made for scoring a Nats game after 9 Innings, and not taking as the end of the contest, the Giants were actually 1st to complete this category. with Tampa Bay following 2 days as the AL Winner.  Who will be the last?  My bet is with Houston

Despite having several hitters that are near or under .200 for their season averages, the Padres went 6 - 2 in their last 8 games, putting up a 7,8,9 and 10 or 10+ result as part of that time frame.  At 21 - 23, they are doing way better than some experts called for.  While I think they are going to be lucky to win 70 games, they did finish 15th in the competition, doing some great work on offense of late.

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at http://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
