It’s a Friday Home Opener so we’re gonna hit the polls again!

You crazy for this one, Getty Archives!

Hello and welcome back to FanPost Friday. Since today is the Mariners Home Opener and it is indeed a Friday yet again, we’re going to do the same thing we did last week: meaningless, no-stakes prop bet polls! I promise I’ll come up with something new to talk about next week when we have a slightly bigger sample size than seven games of weather-borked AL Central baseball to report on.

But first! Let’s take a look at last week’s Opening Day prop bet polls. Y’all got quite a few votes in during those few hours before the game, and some folks totally nailed their predictions.

Starting with the Robbie Ray-related polls, the majority of voters got the called strike correct for the first pitch (64%), but only three voters nailed the velocity at 92 miles per hour. Nice job, hope you played the lotto that day. Also, great job to the 14 voters who got his pitch count (96) correct. That is definitely higher than I guessed for Ray’s first start of the season.

Onto the rest!

  • Only 11 voters got Paul Sewald correct for first reliever out of the bullpen.
  • No one got the total bases right for either Julio or Jarred because ZERO wasn’t an option. Whoopsadoodle!
  • Only 11 voters had undying faith in Mitch Haniger delivering the first Mariners hit of 2022, a 2-run home run.
  • 6 voters guessed Jesse Winker correctly for the final Mariners at-bat of the game
  • A majority of voters (50%) correctly guessed ZERO stolen bases for Julio Rodríguez and I’m going to send him the results of that poll to further stoke his competitive fire to prove all haters and doubters wrong!
  • The last polls were about how many times they’d say “Cy Young” on the broadcast and if they’d mention the catastrophic pick-up basketball game of 2018 during the broadcast and due to my day job I was not able to follow along to the broadcast that closely, but if anyone happens to know the answers to these poll questions, please share in the comments!

And with that, let’s move onto...
