This was an idea that was brought up a while back in a game thread by someone here at BD (speak up in the comments if it was you; I don't want to steal your thunder) and I thought it was a good idea. I thought I would try once a week to come up with a Confidence Poll in an effort to quantitatively gauge the feelings of BD users about different components of our Bucs. Feedback on how to improve this little project is very welcome. With that, on to the first one!
The Bucs are knee-deep in interleague play, territory that has been unkind to us, to say the very least. They've managed to get through 9 IL games in '11 and post a record of 4-5. Now to the tough part. The best team in the AL (IMO) Red Sox come into PNC and then three in Toronto, where they'll try to end a 13-interleague-road-game losing streak. With a current record of 37-37, on a scale of 0 to 10, how confident are you that the Bucs will be at .500 after these six interleague games?
How confident are you that the Bucs will have at least a .500 record after the six remaining interleague games; 3 vs. BOS, 3 @ TOR?
