Well now that that Super Bowl thing is over, and those of us who wanted the Chiefs to win have recovered, it’s time to focus on baseball.
Pitchers and catchers are gathering this week and full Spring Training, though with restrictions, will be underway shortly.
It’s hard to imagine what the 2021 MLB season will be with the continuation of the COVID virus – how many games will actually be played; will fans be able to attend games; and if so, will they; how much enthusiasm has faded for baseball, which was already in decline in some ways; and if there is a credible season, what teams will do well; and what players will shine; and which will falter?
Let me know if you are interested in the continuation the MillersTime Baseball Contests.
If you are interested, please help on the questions. Are there totally different types of questions to ask this year and which, if any, questions from the past continue to be part of the contests (e.g., How will your favorite team do in 2021; T/F questions; WS contestants and winners)?
Please send me any thoughts you have. Use either the Comments section of this post or send them to me at Samesty84@gmail.com.

I enjoy the contest. I really like the bold prediction questions. No time to brainstorm, but I like all the prediction stuff.

i ENJOY THE QUESTIONS AS I AM ALWAYS ABLE TO GUESS AWAY WITH GREAT VIGOR AND KNOW THAT THE ANSWERS ARE NOT GOING TO BE A YES OR NO. AS FAR AS NEW QUESTIONS ARE CONCERNED, I WONDER IF THE NUMBER OF DOUBLE PLAYS HAS CHANGED OVER THE YEARS. MY GUESS IS THAT THEY ARE LOWER, BUT IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO ASK HOW MANY THERE WILL BE IN 2021 AND WHICH TEAM IN EACH LEAGUE WILL BE THE LEADER AND WHICH WILL BE THE GOAT.

As a former winner of a contest, I really love them and would like to see them again. That being said, this past year has not put sports in the forefront of my mind. I hope baseball goes on an upswing when restrictions are lifted again because people miss the sounds, smells and what it “feels” like to attend a game.

I believe they should continue.

I always enjoy the contest but I agree with a previous poster who said sports has taken a back-seat to other concerns. I like questions that are easy to follow throughout the season such as wins/losses of a favorite team or an over/under for the number of homers hit by a league leader. The contest offers a place for optimism in the midst of grim realities (yes, I’m looking at you, Boston Red Sox). I’m happy to help work up some questions if you do move forward.

Has to continue – look forward to it every season and love to see all of the winner’s predictions as the season wraps up! I will start to brainstorming!
BRIAN STEINBACH said:
Continue, of course!
But a question or two that relates to the pandemic might be fun – how many games postponed due to Covid? What will be the last ball park to allow fans? Things like that.

Like a few other respondents, I find myself a little less focused on baseball than I normally am this time of year. But I always enjoy the contests, and if you continue them I will be happy to contribute some questions.

Richard baseball has been different lately but the basics are always the way to go as for questions for season leaders in all categories is good and winners of division World Series is always needed I hope you continue with contest and hope to see you at a game at some point stay safe and we’ll talk soon ronnie
