PART III OF THE BET: aka, the part where i win.
Since this is the second year of 'who buys beers at the yanks-sawks game', we decided that we should mix the subjects of last years bet (jon(athan) papelbon) and this years bets (home runs) into one glorious third part. So here goes: between August 18 and September 14 (the day before our game) the Red Sox play 27 times. In those 27 games, Paps over/under on home runs allowed is 1.5. Clearly I, living in Boston/supporting the Sawks, get the under and Cara, being a terrorist whore, gets the over. Now, let the record show that Paps has only given up two hr's all year, but the pen is starting to get depleted and he is starting to look semi hittable. (yes, i'm just saying that so cara feels better about her bet). He could very easily give up back to back dongerinos and this bet is over. But, from Aug 18 - Sept. 14, I'll be praying for few save opportunities. My wallet can't handle a loss.
(I just ran a spell check, apparently 'dongerinos' is not a real word...yet)
